The Charter Reviewed.
BY CONKUSINO taxablcs with
populutlnn, we erred yestcr
iliiy as to the size of coun
cils contemplated In the rip
per bill. Select would have 12 nnJ
common council 25 members, a mem
bership of wlcldy proportions. The
election of nil selectmen sit largo Is
objected to, yet It presents Home pros
pects of advantage. It would doubt
less tend, for example, to put a halt
upon the continual struggle of ward
Against waid and section against sec
tion which is one of the present draw
backs to progressive und unifying leg
islation ; and It would Insure a prompt
execution of the public will in law
making, which now Is subject to de
ft at through combinations very dlitl
ctilt for the voters to reach. An
amendment to make a third of select
council elective at large and two-thirds
by districts to be apportioned would.
It seems to us, present a desirable me
dium In tills particular. The method
of apportioning representation in com
mon council is indistinct and leaves
too many doors open to mischief. Cot
ter leave the representation one for
every ward irrespective of population
than to invito rejveated gerrymander
ing. An article to define magisterial
methods will need to be added.
Ttut let us also look at some of the
tipper bill's merits. Hy centralizing
executive power In the mayor and
making him the directing spirit of the
city government it puts responsibility
where the people can always locate It.
They elect the mayor, knowing the
scope of his power, and they can hold
lilm to account. That is the great pre
ponderant virtue of the Muohlbronner
proposition, yet there are others almost
us mi I liable. This charter, for example,
provides for the first time a simple,
but thorough system of keeping and
checking city accounts. It makes It
possible for tho public to ascertain at
any time Just where tho city stands
financially. It defines the duties of tho
accounting and auditing departments
i-o plainly that confusion or complaint
Is next to Impossible. Just ns the
mayor is made the executive power so
the controller is made the watchdog
of the city. Under this charter the
elertlnn of a good man as controller
would practically Insure tho doing of
city business on business principles.
Here, again. It Is can led up to tho
people to decide what kind of city gov
ernment they want.
Another merit which ought particu
larly to appeal to tho class of citizens
accustomed to lament tho decadence
of American politics and testify to
their aversion by religiously avoiding
any connection with it is the placing
of civil service safeguards about tho
appointment and removal of police
men, firemen and Flmllar public ser
vants. This charter proposition of
polIs-lov!ng politicians even proposes
to make it a crime for a citizen to say
a kind word in behalf of an aspirant
lor municipal appointment, the pen
alty to fall on tho unfortunate subject
of lecommendatlon. Inasmuch ns this
kind o "reform" is held up by our
most respectable citizens ns the ideal
to which nil government should rjulck
l.v tend, the ripper bill applies It lib
erally, and If parsed will leave Its en
forcement to those who may feel so
Inclined. That Is certainly fair.
Regarding the objections jalsed to
i ho "ripper" sections, It Is plainly evi
dent that a new second lines charter.
If enacted, would have to be enforced.
This enforcement would fall principal
ly on tho mayor and heads of execu
tive departments. Let these be hostile
lo the charter's Intent and they could
steer the municipal craft on tho rocks
in a. thousand directions. Pilotage In
sympathy with the charter's spirit and
intent is absolutely essential to a suc
Anyhow Scranton is not as dirty as
To Help the Boers.
UNDBU THE caption, "How
Americans Can Help the
Boers," a communication
has been sent to every dally
paper In the east by tho executive
committee of the Transvaal League of
the Kaatern states, an organization
of eminent Americana of Dutch de
scent,' claiming to bo pro-Doer with
out being antl-TMtlsh. It follows:
We aic convinced that a Wry luge number
of people In this country, If they only knew
iow, would fliuly help the I:oer In their
irugglr lor freiJmi Htitti'crc, tho question
t.lth most of u hat beent What can we do to
help tlitra? It has been suggested to in recent
ly, and we heartily approtc the suggestion,
Hut we can belt l.elp the lioera by Influencing
UrllUh public opinion in favor of justice and
peace in South Africa. It Is evident that o
wt are the resources of the Drltlsh empire In
comparison with those of the South African
republics, that unlets the history of our own
war el Irdcpendence soon repeats ltielf In this
use, to the point at which the majority ot the
British people concluded that there was neither
tain nor glory lo Its continuance, the repub
lic might, In the tourae of time, become tem
porarily exhausted, Tho sooner, then, that the
rrltlsh people can be brought to the point
which they reached In their war with in, the
better it will be for them, for South Africa,
and for the whole world.
With this end In slew, It becomes of the ut
most Importance to evoke miih an epreslon
ot popular feeling In the United States that the
people of Clrc.it llritaln, Ireland, ami the Brit
ish tnlonlea will be made to reallre at lt
that the large majority of Americans look with
("itreme disfavor upon the continued (laughter

atalc. The British people hae been eiccclied
In tcitard to public sentiment here. They hae

Ilccif, and Mr. Chamberlain's claim tint tome
nit of an alliance bad been entered Into by
him with till country a claim Immediately

In Older lo foster thbe erroneous belief. The
majority ot the English newspapers are so bit
terly antl-lluer that they do not publish new a

Ills subject! they know that "the man In the
street," upon whose Nippon Mr. Chamberlain
depend', feels that In Europe be stand among
cnemiis, and Is, therefore, not only anxious
to conciliate and to priscrse the good opinions
of the Americans, but would be shocked In
learn that the action of his gotemment bad
already alienated, and threatens no alienate
still further, much of the friendly feeling for
Groat llittaln which at one time existed In
We purpose to administer that shock, w far
as possible, by crystallising tho pro-Boer sjin
pathy of tho majority ol Americans and by
tal-.lng steps to bring the icsull In the form
of n Irlcf protest to the notice of the Hrltlsh
people. Tlii, in our opinion, will do more
than antthliiK else could do at this time to
shake the Mini' confidence of many Fngllsh
men In the righteousness of their cause. A
number ol prominent residents of tho Eastern
elites haw already signed the protest referred
lo, which Is printed beneath for further signs
trro. As anon ns a sufficient number of signa

Insert the protest as an advertisement In the
lesdlnj Itritlsh newspapers, and to lf.le It

a utilcment beneath ghlng the number who
havo hlgned it and such names from among
them as am likely to be known In Knghnid.

NCKKTAINTV on an occasion
Involving a change in sov
ereigns Is natural, but In
the ease of the accession of
England's present ltlng It will soon
disappear. It Is Improbable that If Ed
ward VII. were by nature aggressive
and dictatorial he could, under the
peculiar limitations and restrictions of
the British constitutional system, take
any stops or Inaugurate any policies
which would seriously Interfere with
the smooth progress of Imperial af
fairs. Wo havo said that Victoria, during
her reign was more than a mere figure
head sovereign. While true, that state
ment did not Imply that she ruled
through an aggressive assertion of the
sovereign prerogative. Hers was tho
way of palnstnklug diplomacy, tact
and strong womanly personality. Her
successor upon the British throne not
only has Inherited many of her note
worthy personal characteristics, but
during the forty or more years In
which ho has been one of the most
conspicuous figures In the world's af
fairs, he has displayed a finesse, tatit
and Intelligent appreciation of the ro
aulrements of his delicate and fie
quently embarrassing position which
aro not likely to desert him as, in ma
tured manhood, he takes up the seri
ous functions of the klnghood. Pew
rulers have had his opportunities of
studv, of personal acquaintance with
the 'Influential men of his kingdom and
of schooling in the varied social re
quirements of court life. It Is reason
able to assume that a man who can
carry himself so well through the em
Iwrrasslns' circumstances of an helr
upparent, neither giving just offense
nor becoming embroiled In any of the
Intrigues so common In court circles,
will not at tho ago of sixty collapse
under tho stress of a position of In.
creased dignity. Predictions of 111)1)1)16

come principally from those to whom
the wish Is father of tho thought.
It Ih highly gratifying to the Ameri
can people to know that the new sov
ereign has invnrlaly manifested tho
samo cordial friendship for Americans
and tho same kindly recognition nnd
appreciation of American institutions
displayed hy his Illustrious mother.
From the standpoint of international
peace and good will, his accession Is
not a loss but on the contrary a gain

During the SpinUh-Ainerlcan war Lord Paunce
futf paid two visits in peisou to tho White

occasions he biought messages from Ills sovereign.
Tho first visit was made at the time when the
president had bent his ultimatum to Spain re

from Cuba and the leeognition of Cuban Inde
pendence. The attitude of the other powers ol
llutope was unfriendly, bpaln had appealed for
