The "Ripper" Bill.
HASTY STUDY of the "ripper"
eliiuter hill introduced
Monday by Senator Muohl
lroniier (ll.icloses that it is
a drastic and sweeping measure of re
foini. Note, for example, section 4 of
Article XII, which, after providing that
nil iifTiCL'iH, cloths and employes, with
limited exceptions, must be selected
and promoted In pursuance of rules
.ind l pollutions for the ascertainment
of comparative tHneas by a systematic,
opui and competitive examination, pro
ceeds to specify that "one of said rulss
shall provide that any pergonal solici
tation of 'tne'oinceiH of the examining
board or of the appointing power In
favor of any candidate by any person
whoinroevur, unless fraudulent done In
order to Injure him, shall be taken and
deemed to have been done at the In
stance of the candidate himself and
shall disqualify him from competing
at any such examination or appoint
ment for and during one year there
alter." This is beautiful but vain. Hu
man nature will not stand for It.
Novel, too, Is the machinery provid
ed for Impeachment. Upon complaint
In writing by twenty free-holders, with
oaths or alllrmatlons from five against
any municipal officer, the court of
common pleas may summon the above
before a committee of five citizens of
Its selection, which is clothed with
magisterial power, and which Is to
make a written report to court of the
facts. When three or more of this
'ominlttce shall report a charge well
founded, the case is turned over to se
lect council sitting as a court of Im
peachment, the. president or an associ
ate Judge presiding. Here everything
Is threshed out and the vcidlct reached
With the main Idea of the "ripper"
bill namely, that of centering execu
tive power in the inayor and' restrict
ing councils to putely legislative func
tions there Is hearty agt cement. The
provisions defining the duties of the
various executive and auditing depart
ments aie clearly and carefully drawn
vciy notably so In reference tohc
city controller. The suggestion that
the mayor be put under bond Is ;i
good one. So are the features allow
ing him to veto items in appropria
tion bills and to make, at discretion,
Independent audits and Investigations.
The scheme of a permanent pension
fund for policemen and firemen Is
well designed, but might wisely bo
made optional. The members of coun
cils In Pcrnnton, pj, selectmen and up
ward of 300 commoners, the former
elective at laige Is unwieldy; and the
Idoa of semi-annual meetings, except
when specially called, Is calculated to
erowd too much Important legislative
woik Into a short comrnss of timo;
monthly sessions would bo preferable.
As to the "ripper" feature empower
ing the governor to appoint the llrst
mayor under the new regime, said
inayor to name his department chiefs
without reference to select council,
while this will be sharply criticised by
the Fllnn ring in l'ittsburg nnd their
factional followers elsewhere, It Is
necessary to the successful Inaugura
tion of tho charter. The charter
would surely fall if installed by hos
On the whole, tho measure is a long
step forward. A few details need
changing, but the main principles and
specifications aio sound and whole
some. U begins to look ns though Fome

born at the antipodes a new nation
of English-speaking peoples Independ

the article In Gunton'e, which waa
written by an eminent Australian of
ficial, William Francis Schey, fills In
When the United States set up na
tional housekeeping it had, as every
body knows, thirteen states, 842,904
squaro miles of territory and 3,929,214
population. The United States of Aus.
trulla begins with approximately tho
same amount of population, but has
only six constituent colonies, with a
total area of 2,972,906 square miles, or
approximately the entlro area of Eu
rope?. It was not until Jan. 19, 17SS, or
about fourteen months prior to the In
auguration of George Washington as
tho first president "of the United States,
that the first Anglo-Saxon settlement
of Australia was commenced. On that
date, Captain Arthur Philip landed nt

governed from Sydney till 1823, when It

changed to Tasmania. About 1803 nit

N THE COLUMNS of that edition
de luxe of American dally Jour
nalism, the Indianapolis Press,
appears an Insttuctlvo artlclo
entitled, "What It Costs to 'Do' So
ciety in Indianapolis." The caption is
susceptible of various constructions,
but tho Intent of the writer of tho
article In the Press was to indlcato
the approximate average expenses
necessary to bo Incurred by those de
sirous of maintaining an average po
sition In what Is called the best so
ciety of tho Indiana capital. Hefore
considering the figures It should be
said that Indianapolis Is by no means
a plutocratic city. It has few million
aires. Most of Its social leaders havo
been recruited from tho well-to-do
ranks of plain business and profes
sional men, nnd happily aro yet more
inclined to value character and ac
complishments than mere wealth
alone. It may therefore be taken as a
fairly representative type of American
Inland cities of tho second class.
Beginning with the matter of dress,
an estimate of $2000 a year is sug
gested as appropriate for tho wife who
has social ambition. Wo are told that
she may be expected to have, each
season, two handsome tailor-made
gowns, one for winter, one lighter for
spring. These gowns range In price
fiom $73 to $150. For evening each
season, one very handsome and one
second best gown are conslderei
proper. The first In of rich material,
and costs $130; the second perhaps shj
gets within $100. She also manages to
need about two dinner gowns during
tho season, and thesu cost about $100
each. Then she has one handsome
gown made to wer.r when assisting at
teas and receptions, and this costs
nil the way from $90 to $U0. She has
four or live fancy waists, ranging In
price from $30 to $10. Her sealskin
coat costs fiom $330 up, and her
shorter fur wrap about $75. Her long,
light party wrap may be had for $30
or $73. Then she has a shorter wrap
which she wears to afternoon teas and
to tho thcutcr, nnd this will cost about
$4f or $30. She takes at least two pat
tern hats one for winter and one for
summer and these may bo put down
at $33 each. Her other lints will aver
ago $13 to $20. If she goes In for golf
her skirt will cost from $20 to $23, for
It must be tnllorcd and silk lined. Her
Jacket will coat from $10 to $20. She
has her shirt waists, and this Is an
item of about $30 a year. Gloves,
shoes, ilbbons, chiffons and tho ac
cessories of dress, to say nothing of
all the dainty lingerie that a woman
takes pridein silk petticoats, etc.
make up tho lemalnder. For the
grown daughter who does not sew,
$500 to $C00 additional Is allowed for
As to the costs of entei tainlng, of
course tho variations In possible ex
pense arc Innumerable; but tho con
tributor to the Press, In trying to
reach an average, writes; "Some
hostesses claim they can entertain
cheaper by keeping their own cooks,
and others think It economy to him
the cateress and her helpers. When
she Is hlied she gets from $3 to $,
with $1 for each of her helpeis. Ono
hostess, whoso home Is tho center of
many of the season's handsomest en
tertainments, claims that a dinner to
ten gucets may bo given for $15. This
Is, of course by simply serving tho
things that are In season, nicely pre
pared. When one serves tho delicacies
out of season like sttawbenies In
February tho bill runs up. To glvo
a dinner for ten, with wines and all
tho accompaniments, will cost about
$r.0. The average hostess gives about
six dinners during tho year. For a
state dinner, say, when there Is a big
personage to entertain, the dinner bill
may easily run up to $200 for about
sixteen guests. Of course, a dinner
like this only comes once or twico In
ten years. But It Is safe to estimate
three dinners of from fourteen to six
teen and three of from six to ten
guests. Six luncheons probably will
be given during the year, and thes-s
are estimated all tho way from $15
to $25 and on up. Aluslcales nro the
cheapest way to entertain, especially
If one has visitors or friends who will
Blng for nothing. Such an entertain
ment may be given for about $13.
This Includes stringed' Instruments for
accompanying tho voice and Ices for
refreshments, with tho cake mado at
home. One may even add n salad and
"Teas and big receptions cost much
or little. Somo hostesses serv6 only
cups of good tea with Inexpensive
wafots or simple sandwiches of plain
bread and butter, nuts or lettuce. Ono
woman who entertains constantly says
her friends aro tho best decoration
her homo can have, so she never uses
llowers beyond those which are sent
to her. The most expensive small
company li a cotillon. One given, for,
say twenty couples, will easily cost
$100, for the favors of a private cotil
lon have to bo novel and of real
value, the decorations u little more ex
pensive nnd the supper more elaborate
than for un ordinary dancing party.
But It Is really tho favors that count.
Suppose, for Instance, ono favor Is lace
fans for the ladles, tlui cheupsst would
cost $2, and there Is $40 right thero.
Club cotillons are gotten up much
cheaper, some of the prottlcst costing
but $25 for hall and music. For big
parties the bill may easily run up Into
thousands. One such party U said to
have cost the host $1,200 for flowers
nnd electric- lights. Weddings, too,
count up high, for theie aro carriages,
favors, whlto satin ribbon by tho bolt,
decorations extraordinary and the ex
pensive gowns, music nnd supper.
Only those who havo married oft their
daughters know what Weddings cost.
A big wedding may easily eat'up $2000.
A big evening party, with dancing,
may bo given for $100. Electric light
effects may bo arranged for about $50.
During n season a hostess seldom
gives but one largo1 tea and one largo
To tho foregoing must bo added tlio
costs of sending out invitations, possi
bly $100 a year; $100 for theaters; $200
for carriages; at least $300 for extra
servants or other labor which would
otherwise not bo needed; and any
where from $30 to $100 for flowers.
What all this would amount to Is not
totalled In the Press nor havo wo
the heart to try to supply the missing
addition. It Is close enough to say
that to keep up with the pace here In
dicated would require for the) avcrago
family an Income of not less than $10.
000 a year; for, supplementing all the
expenses mentioned above, wo must
not forget to reckon tho cost of keep
ing the father of the family in appro
priate society tilm. This will certain
ly exceed $1.30.
Is such a scale of luxury profitable
fiom any standpoint, even to those
who, so far as money Is concerned,
can easily afford It? Aro the friend
ships which make life worth living de
pendent upon it or necessarily pro
moted by It? Even when this gener
osity In entertainment Is genuine and
not duo to the prompting of a mere
desire to make a show or a stir, could
not every essential pleasure in tho
association of congenial people be ex
tracted much more economically nnd
tho saving devoted more advantage
ously to works of education and benev
olence? The llgures cited above do not
represent the extremes but rather tho
beginnings of social luxury In Amer
ica. For every dollar spent In social
display In Indianapolis today we may,
Judging from the past, safely count
upon $10 being spent ten or twenty
years hence. And where tho "society"
of Indianapolis expends Its thousands
tho "society" of our larger and
wenlthler cities like New Yoik and
Chicago Is expending millions. It may
bo gratifying to know that the op
portunities for achieving material
prosperity are such In this piosperlng
tounlry that this luxury can be af
foidrd by a continually growing num
ber; and It may likewise be true that
the growth In the splendor of those
whom we nowadays consider rich Is
not gt eater proportionately than is the
growth in the comforts and conven
iences of the poor. Hut at tho samo
time, extravagance Is extravagance;
and It seems strange that business
men who would consider unpardonable
the wanton, waste of a penny In con
nection with their commerce or indus
ty can view so complacently and con
tribute so cheerfully to tho great
waste, running Into the millions, which
Is characterizing tho American peo
ple's social life and which 1st Increas

THE THING TO DO NEXT.
Editor of The Tribune
Sin A timely paragraph In Monday'a Tribune
bring up tho question as to whether wo are to
penntt the liolllstcr collection of Indian relics to
be lost from this region, wheio they were gath
ered with the greatest pains and research, and
wheio they properly belong. In Wilkea-llarro their
most carefully homed and wcll-dlrplacd trcasuro
is tho collection of tho late Steuben Jenklni,
made at tho same period as that of Dr, liolllstcr,
Tho more full the historical records of the past
of a city, tho greater Is Its dignity and interest.
We go to London to sco such thing, and I
marveled when studying tho treasures ot the Brit
ish Museum to find sums paid for an antique no
older nor more interesting than ono ot these
relics equal to tho sum asked for the entire liol
llstcr collection. This great and growing city
of Scranton cannot atTord to remain barren of all
that makes the Interest of Its past and present.
The opportunity will not tome to it again to
posscsa such wonderful n cords ot aboriginal life
us it was lhcd among these hills,
The late Dr, Throop was sure enough of this
fact to contribute $300 towards the purchase of
the relics, Otheis have subscribed liberally and
a few more men of means ran easily make up the
remainder needed to keep tho treasure whero it
belongs. L. P, S.
