SCRANTON, JANUARY CO. 1001.
Have Mayor Van Wyck, of New Yolk,
tho wholo world mourns the death of
Kngland'H Rood queen.
THK BEST- friends of the em
ployes of tho Scranton Hall
way company are those who
are counseling them not 'to
tiy to enforce by a strike the demand
that that company shall hereafter re
fuse to employ any man not a member
in cood standing of the local union.
This demand, as will presently be
hIiowii, Roes further than the best In
terests of the employes lequlro and
further than public sympathy would be
likely to extend Its powerful support
in tho event of a second tylne up of
stre't cor travel of tills city and val
ley. Ko lotiR as the men carry the
substantial points in their campaign
for better wages and more favorable
conditions of employment, the attempt
to s.iythut none but the members ot
the local union shall receive employ
ment from the company is unneces-s-nry.
No man of intelligence working
or hetcafter to work for the company
who Is not a member of the union will
be likely to resist the strong argument
and persuasion of tho union members
to Identity himself with the instrument
which has brought about the improved
conditions of ills employment. It Is
enough that tho wages are raised, that
the hours of work are adjusted fairly
and that the company pledges Itself
not to discriminate ngalnst nny em
ploye for being a member of the union
and not to attempt the union's disrup
tion. A contract engaging the company
not to employ anybody not a member
of the union would not stund In a
court of law, because the highest courts
have repeatedly nfllrmed that any man
may work for whom he pleases and
that any inuii or company may em
ploy whom he or It pl?aes, so long
as the terms are mutuallv satisfac
tory. The community has had strikes
enough. What It now wants Is peace,
lirosnerity and general good will,
Mr. Bryan evidently Intends to make
his paper an un-Commoner.
The Ripper Feature.
THK NKW charter bill Intro
duced last Monduy by Sena
tor Muehlbronner of Alle
gheny county and since
widely discussed is nut upheld by Its
Mipporters as an example of perfection
in charter cnjidttuvtlun. It Is Intended
ns the starting point lather than as
the finish of legislative lellef for second
class cities. It has many good points,
a few bad ones and some omissions
und uncertainties. Tho opportunity Is
to bo given to all interests to suggest
amendments. Tho endeavor will bo to
arrive linully at u satisfactory averago
of the Intelligent sentiment and aspira
tion of tho three cities, with one reser
vation that may as well bo faced.
Tho ripper feature will lemaln unless
voted down. It may be safely assumed
that It will not bo withdrawn.
In tho enactment of legislation fund
amental to municipal government fac
tions and persons should be forgotten.
But beutltudes are beatitudes and
facts are facts. For years there has
been cumulative complaint from the
substantial business interests of Pitts
burg at the extravaRnico and arrog
ance of a city ring which has so se
curely riveted itself upon tho vitals of
that thrifty municipality as to make
next to impossible Its overthrow at the
polls. Tho principal beneilclailcs of
this ring, although claiming to be Re
publicans, have during the past llvo
yeans been active In tho attempt to
disrupt tho Republican state organiza
tion and humiliate Its leadois. They
gambled for mastoiy and pillage of the
state as they had mastered and pil
laged Pittsburg, and they lost. They
must tako the consequences. They
Bought to rip and failed; by every law
of political reciprocity ns well as In
virtue of human nature they are fairly
entitled to be ripped In return: If their
opponents con muster the necessary
The outcry against the ripper feature
originates with the prospective victims
nnd Is re-echoed mainly by their fac
tional sympathizers In remembrance of
old times; It has little genuine founda
tion In well-informed public opinion.
Senator FIInn'H willingness to concede
fverythlng If the ripper sections are
dropped shows that ho recognizes tha
porten'ts'of tho occasion and If secured
In cqntlnued possession of the oyster
will, generously allow to his victorious
opponents disposition of the shell.
IV is true thut the people of Scranton
are not Immediately concerned In this
Pittsburg row and might well pray to
be delivered from all consequences of
Jt, Unhappily It is n condition, not a
theory, which Scranton has to face.
The fact of entrunc-o into the baino
class with Pittsburg being established
beyond recall, us well as tho fact that
oldes have been formed tor a lecrlaU-
tlvo nsht to Iho death, It remains for
the representatives of Scranton at
llarrlsburg to choose nicies or pet shot
to pleccM bf-twoen the llnea of fire. The
ripper feature Is not aimed nt Kcmnton
and by arrangement can no douot bo

body In Scranton thinks that out of
deference to this city and section the
legislative battle of the decade In Penn

It seems that the men who drink
whiskey, chow tobacco and sign checks

NO DIRECTION has factional
mendacity gone further than in
barging the administration ot
Governor Stone with complicity
In oleomargarine frauds and with In
difference to the protection of tho dairy
Interests against dishonest competition.
Tho purpose of these trumped up accu
sations, which have been spread broad
cast through subsidized news channels
In rural communities, was to Inflame
the country districts Into electing anti
Quay members of the legislature; but
the I'ourFe of legislation at Harrisburg
thin session will be likely to tako a
good dcul ot tho wind out of this pal
pable conspiracy of defamation.
There has been introduced by Sena
tor Snyder a bill which la calculated to
stiengthen every weak point in tho
present state laws on tha subject of
oleomargarine and it is to be support
ed by every legitimate Influence of the
administration. It imposes a lino of
$500 and sixty days' imprisonment,
and permits a permanent injunction
against the defendant In any case
while an appeal Is pending to tho high
er courts, thus preventing delay and
making It undesirable for oleo violators
to resort to obstructive litigation. It
requires wholesalers and retailers to
keep open books, accessible by the de
partment of agriculture at alt times,
showing all purchases and sales of
oleo. It also provides that certificates
of tho department of agriculture shall
be sufficient to prove that the defend
ant has or has not a license, and for
the transfer of license from ono Indi
vidual to another, but restricts the li
cense to a single place of business.
Provision is made for the punishment
of clerks, agents and employes who In
any way aid and nssist In tho viola
tion of this law, thus preventing vio
lators from concealing themselves be
hind figureheads, whom the law here
tofoie has not been able to reach.
In short, the endeavor is to be made
to construct a machinery of law which
will be ample to punish every vender
of bogus butter against whom theie Is
sufllclent information to justify the
setting of It in motion. If instead of
wasting time and money In the vain
effort to defame and discredit the law
ofilceis and agents of the common
wealth the professional reform element
which has recently been so vociferous
ly concerned over oleo frauds would
devote their icsources toward helping
to procure honest evidence, the gain to
the dairy Interests would be Immediate

The Industrial Future.
pon the r uggestlon of a
ca engineer that tho
Erie canal be abandoned
as a waterway and conveited into an
electric freight railroad. In a speech
before tho Utlca board of trade, deltv
crod last Monday night, Hon. Herbert
I. Bissell of Buffalo presented tha
other side of this question in a manner
of more than passing interest.
In the first plnce, he showed thnt
Hip canal, in spito of mismanagement
and extravagance, has been a paying
institution for the stato and people! of
New York, netting to date nearly ?20,
000,000 inoto revonues thnn It has cost,
without any consideration of the enor
mous benefits accruing from tho dc-vi-lopmont
of the cities along the line
r.f tho ran.il, from tho development of
tho terminals of the canal, and tno
i (.-.suiting boiiHfits to every part of tho
slate. Including tho payment of $3G.
000,000 of fielghtr to tln-se engaged in
the cauul trafllc. But It Is In the an
ticipatory phases ot Mr. Blssoll's ic
marks that the people of Scranton and
of Pennsylvania aie chiefly Interested.
"We have been accustomed," he said,
"to consider the canal as mainly use
ful for the transportation of biead
stuff.'. 1 will pass over the considera
tion of Its continued usefulness as au
i-iilarged canal for that purpose, and
piesent to you, ns an Illustration of
tho necessity for its Improvement, the
development of the iron nnd stel In
dustry. Clear-headed business men,,
among them the firm or Marcus A,
Ilunnii (k Co., of Cleveland, have re
cently located extensive bhibt fur
naces in uiQ city ot tiutraio, and a
now steel plant which will cost twen
ty millions of dollars Is now In pro
cess ot construction there. Why has
Buffalo been selected'.' It Is because
tho raw materials for the manufacture
of Iron can bo assembled at Bulfalo
at as low a cost as at any other point
in the United States.
"Nature, in centuries past, deposited
a great mass of thousands of millions
of tons of Iron oxide In the region of
Lake Superior, and this Iron ore can
be brought to Buffalo by tho Great
Lakes as cheaply as It can be brought
to Cleveland or ('onneaut, and from
Conneaut It must bear charges to tako
It to Pittsburg, which has heretofore
been tho most advantageous point for
the manufacture of iron. Tho addi
tional expense of biinging coke from
Pennsylvania to Buffulo Ju.it about
equals tho additional oxpeuso of rail
road freights from tha lake to Pitts
burg und thus Buffalo is constituted
as deslrablo u place for tho assem
blage of the raw materials for tho
manufacture of iron as this famous
Ponusylvunta city whoso great and
limitless wealth has been largely pro
duced by tho iron trade.
"Now, If a sultublo waterway, an
enlarged barge cauul, is provided
through New York state, It Is certain
that Western New York nnd tho Mo
hawk valley and tho Hudson river
will be tho great Industrial beehive.
Every description of Iron and steel
will bo made In tho Emplro state. Tho
ship building for tho world should bo
done In the vicinity of New York city,
and the Emplro state can readily step
Info the leading manufacturing post
tlon, so long held by England. Tho
country that enn produco the cheap
est ton of Iron Is as sure to hold tho
leading place In tho world's prosperity.
as thnt the sun will rise tomorrow,
and with cheap transportation facili
ties, tho stuto of New York will reap
the lion's share of prosperity which
Is sure to come to this country In tho
next twenty years.
"The Lake Superior region last year
produced 18,000.000 tons of Iron ore,
and this Iron ore can bo brought by
water to Buffalo cheaper than Iron oro
for tho manufacture ot Iron can be
Inld down nt any other point In the
world, and the Erie canal, enlarged
and improved, will give tho shipper
of Iron manufactured In Buffalo an ad
vantage ot at least two dollars per
ton over Pittsburg Iron In tho eastern
market. Consider the possibilities of
manufacturing Iron and steel at Utlca,
or at any other canal point In tho
state. The ore will come from the
hake Superior region at the same
cost as to Conneaut, Ohio. It will be
pliced on tho thousand-ton barges,
and brought to Utlca, or the pig Iron
may be manufactured In Buffalo nnd
laid down at Utlca, at such a low cost,
through cheap transportation, that
manufacturing concerns that aro now
melting pig Iron will flourish and em
ploy labor to such an extent that a
new lease of life and a new Impetus
to wealth will be given to your city.
Tho sumo argument will apply with
equnl force to nny other city along
the lino of the canal."
What a realization of this glowing
prophecy would mean to the busi
ness future of Pennsylvania can be
imagined from Scrnnton's prospective
loss of the steel mills. But Instead of
losing sleep over the bright prospects
of other communities, our people will
gird up their loins and proceed to
hunt for new enterprises to 1111 in
the gaps. There is room for abundant
prosperity both In Pennsylvania and
In New York.
