'Iliey Know what the American flag means in incrii i, and till it means that in the Philippines they will not bow to it. The Times evidently takes the same view of the, definition of freedom that Is cherished by the followers of Afruln aldo, who believe that anything short of the liberty to run the government of the islands to suit their own ambi tious ends; make faces at the foreign poweis; and raise Cain generally, and have the United States foot the bills, Is slavery. The Times should bo above such clap-trap. a Ex-Secretary Alger's remarks con cerning General lilies, indicate that there has bee:: something resting un easily upon the mind of the secretary for many months agone. 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 13.G:!fl,703 tons, or moio than 4,000,000 III excess of the Urltish production. In other words, It had trebled Its produc tion In n peilod wherein Germany had 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 jHenj pall Industry, America, which Im ported English rails nt 25 a ton in lira, producing last year 2,272,700 tons ns ugtilnst the S38.US tons produced by Great Britain. It Is truo that iho Urltish nro still In tho lead ns exporters of some of these products, but this country must become more and moro u. factor In foreign markets. According to consu t Inr reports, the world now does $1S, 000,000,000 worth of commerce, of which England's share Is 18,3 per cent., Germany's Is 10,8 per cent, and tho United States' Is 0.7 per cent., al though this nation Is but entering the (lojd, .England has managed to hold Its owp In woolen and cotton manu factures, but Its Imports aro constant ly Increasing mid its exports aro vir tually ut a standstill. 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. The manner in which tho recent speech of air. John "W. Kern has been o received Indicates Ihitl Bucclmena of tho old-tlmo Democrat will soon be raro cnotiKli to bo In demand no museum freaks. 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 purposes. 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. The sturdy adopted citizen, who Is tho mainstay of tho contractor, is at present In no danger of .sunstroke while engaged in daily toll, but he cun still thaw out dynamite. It Is feared that the multitudinous reports of the discovery of ono Pat Crowe may Incite tho Chicago poets to more nefarious work. In ills recent manifesto Mr. Alger In timates that Uncle William Shatter also has a grievance, TOLD BY THE STARS.

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 arm, and no such usurpation would he submit ted to. And the eighteenth centuiy went out with the United State hoping for the best, but fearing Hie worst outcome of a frightful dilemma. Statistic sliowcd that the laigcst city in the world, London, had consumed M.OOO.OOO bushels of coal duiing the jcar. The amount of fire in surance carried in London wa only 200,000,000 pound sterling, and there were only eight offices transacting in a more or less complete form, the business nf life assuiance in all of Great Britain and Ireland. The effective rank and flic of the aimy actually seiving in the pay of Great Bli tain amounted to 16S.082, 17,073,000 pounds ster ling being spent dm lug the year on the whole army. The British navy consisted ot 707 ships of 008,741 tons, on which theie were 133,000 men. This cost 12,422,837 pounds sterling for the .veav. The los of merchant and other ships by wreck upon Ice shores, toasts and disasters in the open sea was 303 for the j-ear, an aveiagc of one lath clay, Of the remarkable cases these were four: Queen, British transport, grounded on Trcfusls Point, 300 soul perishing; MastilT, gun brig, wrecked on Cockle Sands; Repulse, slxtv-four guns, wrecked off Usbant; Queen, West India, man, destrojed by flic olf nraz.il. Tho jcar 1800 made a further dilToiencc be tween tho Julian and Gregorian, or new stvlo calendar. The former counted It a leap jcar, the latter common, making tho difference thereafter for a centuiy twelve da.vs. Illstoiy does not re cord when Hie nineteenth centdry began.
