-f-HM FRANK tslntcment by
Tresldent CIniK, of tne
.X. Scranton Railway company,
at embodied In tho Inter
view In yesterday's Tribune, that he
co-operated with Oeneral Manager Sll
llman In drafting1 the recently Issued
but subsequently canceled notice of the
suspension of transfers, and that It
was the fruit of a careful considera
tion of means whereby the company
could Increase Its returns, Is worthy of
being bprend on public record conspic
uously, for two reasons:
(1) It cxonerntcH Mr. Stlllman, put
ting tho burden of responsibility upon
(2) It establishes by the words of the
lilshcst official conneotcd with the
Hcianton Hallway company, in what
spirit that corporation's moral nnd le
gal obligations to the city of Scranton
nro viewed by It.
Tho obligation to give transfers was
not only expressed In certain of the
franchise contracts under which the
Scranton Hallway company operates
Its system of cars upon tho public
streets of this city but It was also im
plied In the fact that the company Is
In the gratuitous possession of rlshts
capitalized by It In tho sum of millions
of dollars; but, without pique, as Presi
dent Claik tells us, and without sar
casm; on the contrary, after careful
consideration, It was decided arbitrar
ily by only one of the parties in Inter
est that this obligation should bo vio
lated, as a means whereby tho com
pany might Increase its returns.

Lackawanna county fares well
In the house. Representative
Scheuer being placed nt the head of
the Important committee on banks and
banking, and Representative Phllbln
at the head of the committee on labor
and Industry. The assignments of the
other two members, while not includ
ing chairmanships, are well calculated
to give full opportunity to their abil
ities and ambitions, and the delegation
as a whole Is in excellent position to
make its Influence felt.
The distinction which comes to Mr.
Phllbln in receiving in his first term
no important a chairmanship as that
of the committee to which all labor
bills aro referred is unusual 'but fully
deserved. Mr. Phllbln was one of the
few members who both during his
campaign for the nomination and cleo
tlon, and after his election refused uni
formly to be pledged by any faction
but awaited the opportunity to make
a personal study of tho field before
casting his lot In respect to the sena
torshtp. There la little doubt that. If
he had been willing to accept money
1'or IiIb voto he could, by a simple re
fusal to enter the caucus of his party
or 'by feigned Illness or nny one of
numerous devices more or less common
among tho lower grade of politicians,
have secured what to the average
young man would seem a glittering
fortune. But he remained regular
through conviction; neither money nor
promise could swerve him; and he is
tho right kind of man to put at the
head of the committee which Is so
often the abldng place of thin and
Mr. Scheuer's assignment Is a trib

A Proper Inquiry.
HAVING MADE wholesale
and specific charges af
fecting the integrity of the
police and school admlnls-
ut Ion in Philadelphia, the North
American of that city, through its
proprietor, Thomas U. Wanamaker,
and its managing editor, 13. A. Van
Valkenberg, have been summoned by
Judge Flnletter to substantiate them
as the basin of punltlvo proceedings.
Tho charges allege that gambling is
being deliberately fostered by the po
lice among tho children In the schools
of Philadelphia, at the behest of gam
bling Interests, which have formed ar
unholy nlllanco with the city admin
istration. Tho animus of tho charges
Is apparent. It was tho Ashbrldgo ad
ministration in-Philadelphia which do
footed the Insurgent purpose to cap
ture the Pennsylvania legislature and
the United States senatorship; there-
foro it Is to tho interest of tho faction
which Van Valkcnlicrg nnd the North
American represent thai the Ash
bridge administration should bo dis
credited beforo the pcopte. Recently
there was held in Philadelphia, n mass
meeting of citizens before which
Hlshop Potter, of Now York, appeared
and spoko In response to nn Invitation
that charged Philadelphia with being
the wickedest and worst governed city
in tho world. Out of this meeting
grew a commlttcu of distinguished
men who nro planning to conduct a
campaign of municipal regeneration.
Back of this honest manifestation of
reform purpose can plainly bo seen
the Intrigues of caHt-off politicians
hungering for iclnstateinent nnd re
venge and It Is necessary to eeparato
the honest from the dishonest factors
In this campaign of attack upon thfi
present mayor of Philadelphia in or
der to understand tho developments
from day to day.
But, regardless of motives, specific
charges of vice and immorality merit
unsparing investigation nnd Judge
Flnletter has done well to put the
wheels of justice in motion promptly.
If there is a substantial b&sls of truth
in the North American's accusation),
tho condition must not only be re
vealed, but remedied, and those re
sponsible for It punished to the full
extent of the law. On tho other hand,
If the Wanamaker paper has been
lying, this, also, should bo established
on court record.
The scheme to secure Mr. Bryan's
opinions upon proposed currency legis

IT IS REPORTED In the Harris
burg correspondence of tho

is a disposition among members
of the legislature irrespective of fac
tion or party to assent to the proposi
tion, embodied in bill prepaied by Sen
ator Fox of Dauphin county, that the

and with un end to the contemptible

have hitherto interrupted this neces
The Fox bill uppiopriates $0,000,000
to bo expended In four years ut the
rate of $1,250,000 a year, tho details of
expenditure and supervision to bo en

sons, including the governor and four
men appointive by him. The commis
sion shall receive no compensation for
Its services, but shall be reimbursed
for the actual expenses Incuried In
connection with their duties, and any
vacancies occurring In tho commission
shall be filled by appointment by the
governor. Immediately upon the ap
pointment or the commission It shall
as speedily us possible have drawings
and specifications prepaied nnd let
contracts for the execution of the
work. The commission may make such
modifications In tho constiuctlon of the
building already erected as It may
deem advisable, but the building must
provide ample accommodations for the
executive and departmental blanches
of the state, as well as tho aroneral
assembly. The contracts shall Include,
the removal of the two buildings now
occupied by the secretary of Internal
affairs and the secretary of agriculture,
and shall provide temiwirary quarters
for these departments. Contracts shall
go to the lowest responsible bidders,
and all contractors shall be required to
give bonds equal to one-hulf the
amount of tho contract. The building
shall bo completed in all Its parts,
ready for occupation, on or before No
vember 1, 1905. Tho total aggregate
cost for the construction of the build
ing, including the dome and the de
partmental wings, also Including all
fees, commissions, salailes and ex
penses of all kinds for the commission,
engineers, experts, architects, super
intendents, clerks and other employes,
shall not exceed $6,000,000.
The present uncompleted und dis
graceful looking capltol Is a monument
to the Insincerity of those who tried
to play to the grand stand on this
subject. It is the merest shell, barn
like In appearance and shameful as a
specimen of halting enterprise. The
commonwealth Is not so niggardly that
It begrudges the money necessary to

A DECREASE of 117 In last
year's attendance ut the
University of Pennsylvania)
Is noted in the provost's
annual report, but it is explained by
the prolongation of tho courses nnd In
crease in the requirements of udmU
slon affecting the schools of law, medi
cine and dentlftry. As a matter of
fact there watt during tho year an In
crease of 76 In the attendance of pupils
from states nnd territories other than
Pennsylvania. This speaks volumes
for tho university's growing reputation
Tho most important matter discussed
by Dr. Harrison in relation to the col
lege is the readjustment of those
courses Intended to prepare Htudent
for the study of medicine, This Jias
been solved In nrrnnglng it bo that,
under certain conditions, a student
may be a 6enlor In the college nnd a
freshman in tho medical school simul
taneously, thus enabling u man to
take a degree In arts or science nnd
ono in medicine after seven years of
study. Certain special courses con
nected with those In ilnince nnd econ
omy, it had been thought advisable to
abolish. In place of them, there has
been established a new four-year
course, entitled "the course In com
merce and Industry." In this course,
business and the business life arc re
garded not ns an occupation but as a
profession with principles that must
bo mastered If those duties are to be
adequately performed, and with aux
iliary sciences and discipline.

I'ioiii tl.u 'ew York Tribune,
Not long ago a citizen of a certain town In
this country died, Though respected by all,
ho had been in no trnso n marked or prominent
man, After Ids graduation from college he
married and engaged in 4 railing that meant a
life of constant drudgery for a slender salary.
Hut hit did his woi faithfully for upward of
forty )eam, too busy with the duties that came
each 'lay to his hand to think of finding an oe
cupa Hon that would brin? htm a larger ictuin
of fortune or fame. He reared a laige fumlly
of bo) and girls In honor and honesty, lit
sent some of tho bo)i to colic tre and put others
in business, As for the gills, he seconded all
tho efforts of their mother to make1 them good,
true and puic In all respects, woithy to be the
mothers ot ncble merit. A u citizen and a
neighbor he aimed lo haw a conscience von)
of offence toward all men. Ho was honest, up.
right, truthful and kindly, and all In such a
quiet, matter of fact way that hardly any one
ever noticed it. His character, Indeed, was so
much a part of him that the world thought fx
Just had to act as ho did, and the world was
right In thus thinking. SV ho died, and outside
of his family and a few friends his death was
an unnoticed Incident. "Heart Itrallyl Too
bad; nice old chap, but tathcr slow, Queer
bow ho managed to net alone; with his llr
family and no salary to apeak of." In a sim
ilar vein was tho comment of hlc old college
i hum, a man who lias become famous, wealthy
and powerful In tho world. "Poor fellow! To
think of hi dying a common unknown ilrude
after hla brilliant promise In college. He could
have been one of the biggest men In the coun
try, worth millions, if he had only wanted to."
How frequently It happen that men arc thus
Judged, or rather misjudged. We count our
selves a great, progressive and clear vistoncd
people, and doubtless In many thing ne lire.
Hut when It Is a question of what really 1 nie
ces In life the popular Judgment I more likely
to Iki wrong than right. The charge of foreign
crtltc Ihit Americans Identify success with
money making Is not wholly true. Hut they do
think many of them that no man can be
really successful unless he ha in some way
or other lifted himself above tho ma of com
mon men. Tills Is tho weak spot In every
democracy; It dlstnuts the etandirds It has set
for Itself, and therefore It often happen Ihit
men who loudly vociferate about the equality
of all men are mort anxious to surpass their
fellow men In corns way. And as the possession
of money enables cen the mott ordinary man
to make himself n personage to the multitude,
it ia that which Is most commonly desired, Al
n nation It must he admitted that we aro lack
ing In a sense of perspective. We arc In dan
tier of overlooking virtues that are passive or
types of moral heroism thit are iincmplmtlc. Wo
have read no many stories of poor barefooted
country hoja becoming rich and famous thit
such a boy, v.ho simply becomes a respected but
ui.known man, like the one of whom we havo
Just spoken, Is likely to be considered a fsilure.
The fact that he performed the common duties
of life uncommonly well, that lit reared a fam
ily of good men and women to strengthen and
uphold the state, and that he left to his neigh
bor nn example of noble manhood, I forsotten
or Ignored, and It I only rememnerril that he
somehow failed to get his name before the pub.
The men who have written their names on
tho scroll of fame, as tho school leader put It,
deserve1 to hold a place In the regird of theworld.
This country has pioduccd man) such men and
will produce many moie. But to Identify suc
cess with fame would be a fatal mistake. The
pillars of the stste are not always or altOBctl.er
the men whose names are on every Up because
It has happened to them to work In the sight
of the public. The real strength of the country
Hoc In the uncounted multitude of Its cood, up
right and conscientious men and women, few
of whom can ever hope for wealth or fame, and
the great majority of whom must be content to
live lives of unherolc drudgery and toil.
CUBE FOB THE QBIP.
The Xrvr Voik Press reproduces fiom the Pop
ular Science News an article on the grip of
which this Is the concluding paragraph:
"The all Impottant thing Is tor the invaded
pereon to Institute1 at one- a treatment favor
able to prompt relief and cure. fortunately
synthetic1 chemistry has given ns a remedy in
phcnalgln, which can be absolutely iclled upon.
In adult doses of ten grains washed down by a
good hot toddy at night (to be repeated lie an
hour if necessary), a prompt relief to all dlsconi.
forts will bo secured. The action of the phenal
gin Is not only to relieve pain and distress, but
to open up the excretory organs and correct the
general perversion of secretions as Indicated by
the bad taste In the mouth, etc. In the morning,
unless the bowels have Milflclently moved, a tea
spoonful or two of sulphate of soda may be given
In a glass of hot water to flush them more thor
oughly. It may be well to continue the phcnel
gin In five-grain doses every three or four bouts
for several days, to be followed later by a tonic
composed as follows: Capitricum t gnln,
quinine 2 grains and strychnine 1-50 of a giaiu,
in a pill or capoule three times a da)."
Those who object to the toddy on conscien
tious grounds doubtless can secure equal results
by using a hot lemonade1.
