Our Commercial Expansion.
A PUBLICATION in the Lon
don Times of recent date,
calling attention to the
great commercial growth
of the United States and M. Leroy
Ronulieu's statements upon the same
subject in a Vienna journal are strik
ingly significant of a state of affairs
that Is rapidly becoming a source of
acute anxiety abroad. M. Leroy-Bcau-lleu
thinks that the United States
may be icgaided now as the llrst in
lustiial nation, rapidly outstripping:
lOuiope. t;oth expressions emphasize
n condition hoo possibility was fore
seen hevernl yeais ago, but which is
iov recognized as a reul and pres
ent menace to Kuiopean supremacy.
It is recognized that In the great
slvalry of the three leading commer
cial powers, Great UrlU.ln, Germnny
and the United Stales, the powers last
irimeil are gaining, and at the expense
of the Hiltls-h. Hoth Germany iand
fiieat Piltain are now icalizing with
apprehension that the enormous nat
ural resources of the United States,
together with the energy of Ameri
can methods and the improved means
of production, uro placing this cottn
tiy well on the road to absolute su-pivma.-y.
The gain? made by thin
countiy In certain lines have become
enoimous. in piSl, for Instance, the
ilrill.sh production of pig lion was
about double that of this country,
but In ISSiQ the United States had
pissed ahead, and in 1S09 Itiproducea

other words, It had trebled Its produc

little moio than doubled Its own tout
put and Great Britain had Increased
Its production only about ono-seventh,
'The s.iiiio conditions hold true In tho

t Inr reports, the world now does $1S,

which England's share Is 18,3 per cent.,
Germany's Is 10,8 per cent, and tho

Self-sustaining, and with abundant
resources for a heavy export trade,
the United States is acquiring a com
mercial Importance the limits of which
may not yet be discerned, It may ho
questioned whether the appearanco of
tho United States In t,he arena as the
leader In the great commercial strug
gle of tho nations may not be the
opening of the now century.

An effort Is being made to prevent
tho use of giiBollttc In Now York city.
A member of tho board of aldermen
has Introduced an oidtiiauee which is
designed to stop tho use of gasoline In
Gcrator New York. The ordinance Is
based on the objection that rcasollne
Is an explosive and as such ought to
bo eliminated from city life. If passed,
tho ordinance would provent tho ttso
of gasoline stoves, engines, lamps, and
probably tho use of gasoline. In nnv
form for any purpose, Even tho auto
mobiles which use gasoline would be
brought'tinder tho ban and would have
to stop running. There is no question
that the use of gasoline by careless
persons lias been the cause of many
Ilres and explosions everywhere. Many,
however, will not agree that to pro
hibit tho use of this cheap fuel Is the
best way to deal with the problem, A
more equitable way would bo to place
greater safeguards that would reduce
tho danger of explosions, than to abol
ish an element so useful for heat-generating
The Strike Settled. '
THE ItEJOICING in this city
over tho settlement of tho
trolley car affair will be al
most equal to that upon tho
announcement that tho great anthra
cite coal strike had been declared oft.
While the numbers of men and inter
ests Involved In tho car strike were
Insignificant, compared to 'the Immense
Rrmy of coal worker:) who remained
Idle for nearly two months, it is prob
able that tho local public has suffered
greater Inconvenience from tho brief
tle-uo of tho car lines than from the
coal strike. It should be a. cause for
general rejoicing that a spirit of com
promise has prevailed and that peace
has been restored, thus averting what
might have proved a tedious struggle,
Involving tho loss of thousands and
engendering a feeling of bitterness that
could not have been wiped out in
years. The strike throughout, so far
as the traction employes were con
cerned, has been conducted in a quiet
and orderly manner, and forbearance
upon part of the heads of the company
has also doubtless had much influ
ence in bringing about the amicable
adjustment of the trouble in a way
that Is creditable to all concerned.
1 Now that the affair has been satls
factorlly arranged, it is to be hoped
that differences u 111 be forgotten and
that the beginning of tho new- century
will find employerand employe mutual
ly interested In giving Scranton the
best street car service In the land.
People who complain of the dust and
dirt which arq allowed to accumu
late on tho city streets because thev
soil lace curtains and make life un
comfortable do not do the subject jus
tice, says the New York Tribune. It
Is the testimony of the physicians of
Chicago that tho present picvalence of
grippe and other similar diseases is
due to the dust storms which prevailed
during the early part of last week.
Because the streets weic not kept rea
sonably clean, as they should have
been, dust and disca.so germs accumu
lated in the gutters, waiting only a
favoring gust of wind to spread con
tngion far and wide. Sooner or later,
It may be taken for granted, people
will wake up to tho fact that their in
terest in proper municipal government
is more than a meiely sentimental one.
Professor Coles, the famous astion
omer and scientist of Kingston, Penn
sylvania, claims that he has discov
ered the mystery of numbeis, and ho
issues a challenge to the whole mathe
matical, astronomical and scientific
world to disprove his theoiy, If thev
can. He proves that we aie one hun
dred years ahead of time. Parties who
feel Inclined to accept the challenge of
the professor will do -well to bear In
mind that he Is equipped with material
that will miike'the task of refuting his
assertions no easy one.
It Is to be regretted that Sara. Bern
hardt has decided to play Hamlet. The
desire to appear as Hamlet seldom
takes possession of an actress until tho
curtain is about to descend upon her
career as a star.

tho mainstay of tho contractor, is at

while engaged in daily toll, but he cun

It Is feared that the multitudinous
reports of the discovery of ono Pat

more nefarious work.

ONE HUNDRED YEARS
Copyiight, 1,100, by R. 13. Hughes, Louis
ville. THE END of the United States presidential
difficulty wa seemingly farther in the dim
future as the old century went out than a
fortnight before. The Federalists, heeding
not the advice of their former leader, the great
Alexander Hamilton, to make Jefferson president
in preference to Burr, seemed determined lo
break tfto tie between Jefferson and Burr (that
would take the election from the electoral col
lege and place It In congress) by transferring the
ttovcrnment by an act to Chief Justice Jay or
Secretary of State Marshall or to let it devolve
on the sccietary pro tcm. of the senate until the
following December. Jefferson saw this would
give the Federalists another ear's predominance
and the chance of future events. He announced
in a letter that the Republican proposed to pre
forward to an election by congicss, adding: "ff
wo fail in this a concert between the two higher
candidates may picvent the dissolution of the
government and danger of anarchy, by an opera
tion bungling indeed and imperfect, but better
than letting the legislature take the nomination
ot the executive entiiely from the people." This
"opeiation," a Jctfcron explained after tho
crisis had passed, contemplated .1 convention,
called by Hip Republican member of congress,
with the viitual president and viee-picsident to
amend tho constitution to tit the case. He com
patcd the Federal government to a clock about
mil down, and the proposed convention the force
to wind it up again. This obvious simile used
in the settlement of a (eiublo Jeopardy was vviit
tcn by Jefferson after lie had been in the presi
dential chair nearly a month, and could tran
quilly discuss such national watch-winding af
talis. Thcie vvcic other Republican, however, not so
conservative, who declared openly and firmly
that the day congress passed an act making Jay
or Marshall president tho Middle States would

And the eighteenth centuiy went out with the
United State hoping for the best, but fearing
Hie worst outcome of a frightful dilemma.
