itrong arguments are offered to show

Mlrahlp. Inasmuch, however, as there
In no pressing need for another Judge,
no overwhelming popular demand
which It would be tho clear duty of
the legislature to lespect regardless
of politics or factional alignment, the
movement for n now Judge must take
Its place at H.irrlsburg among the
subjects of legislation which are grant
ed or withheld according to the pleas
uiv of the dominant powers. Not be
ing an Imperious necessity, It bjeomes,
as It were, a species of legislative lux
ury allowable or not as the organiza
tion shall device. Whether this bhoultl
or f liould not bo so. It Is so, nnd ac
cepting It as so, how does Luzerne
county .stand as an applicant for or
Tho senator nnd four of the five lie-
publican representatives of Luzurua
-ounty have done their best to over
throw the existing administration at
llanisburg, and while In the case of
one of these lepresentntlves, Mr. Co
ray, this opposition has been straight
forward and consistent from the start,
thus entitling it to the respect even of
those who do not sympathize with It,
In the case of the senator and at least
two of the lepresentatlves there has
been political double-dealing of tho
most contemptible character. Certain
ly, with the exception of lteprcsentj
tlve llaworth, the organization owes
nothing politically to tho Luzerne dele
gation. Nor Is It especially Indebted
to the bar of the mother county. A
largo percentage of its Itepubllcan
members have, for no particular rea
son other than the natural tendency
of perverse mankind to rail at those
higher up, been following In tho dys
peptic wake of tho scolding insurgent
organs, whoso bilious output of libel
and exaggeration they have accepted
meekly, without discount or Investiga
tion, riven the lawyers who know bet
ter have been too Indolent or apathetic
to take part In the efforts of the stal
warts to put Luzerne on a common
?nse course, where It could take u po
sition of lufliiencp In state affairs com
mensurate with Its size and wealth.
So that now, whatever consideration
may come to Luzerne ftom the domi
nant Influences at llanisburg must be
sought In th- hang-dog fuslilon of the
discomfited opponent begging grace
from tho enemy who has licked him
lather than demanded both as a na
tural right and as a political tribute to
iloveuior Odfll rays ho did not enter
upon his- piogr.imme of tax revision
after a couple of weeks' consideration.
For four years ho has been studying
the mutt.-r nnd he feels certain that ho
Is tight. The official who is mire of
his giound Is generally also sure of his
Training School for Servants.
IN CONTRAST with the Ineffective
expletives of the aveiuge man
when confronted with the exas
perations of tho servant girl
problem Is the course pursued by
filshop Sattciiee, of Washington. Ho
docs not swear and tearhls hair whsn
the czarina of tho culinary department
proceeds to live up to the traditions
of her oirice. On the contrary It mere
ly moves him to provide a remedy
and this ho believes ho has done, In
the. proposition to establish a school to
give girls special tialnl'l; for domestic
Tho bishop's Idea Is that the voca
tion of tho so-called domestic servant
not only Is Just as honorable but can
by a little effort bo made Just as In
ltlng as the vocation of the woman
trained nurse, clerk, amanuensis, mil
liner or any of tho other occupations
which women nowadays pursue with
out loss of social prestige or opportun
ity. It Is his opinion that the reason
why thero Is a certain Implied con
temptuousness In the appellation "ser
vant girl" Is not because tho work of
housekeeping in itself is deserving1 of
contempt on tho contrary, It more
nearly than any other vocation repre
sents the sphere of usefulness for
which womanhood was by naturo and
destiny bjst fitted but because the
opinion ihas been permitted to obtain
that It l a work calling for no par
ticular preparation and therefore suit
ed to girls In humblo circumstances
who us a rule arc uneducated and
therefore unfitted to aspire high so
cially. The bishop intends to ooen ills house-
work acntlemy In Washington nt on
early eluy and has Interested In the
project a sufllclent number of well-to-do
and Intelligent women to, Insuro n
fair trial of Its expediency. Thero Is
no question of ItH usefulness In theory.

Ono of the Interesting features of the
Cuban constitution Is the experiment
which It to be tried of giving congress
men a four-year term and electing one
half of their number every two years.
Prom the American standpoint this
would be objectionable for tho reason
that it would be likely to prevent tho
Immediate reflection of public opinion
In legislation. Yet may not this check
upon popular Impulse be very useful In
a tropical country whore gusts of
prejudlco gather, burst and disappear
rapidly? Would It not, even In our
own country, make for a more uni
form and progressive ttend of legisla
tion? After the Faith Healers.
AMONG the states considering
tho propriety of putting n.
, legal ban upon the Irregular
pi net Ice of healing disease
for pay Is New York. In Its legisla
ture a measure Is pending known as
tho Hell bill, the purpose of which Is
to put a stop to what many people re
gard ns money-making liumbuggery In
the guise of faith cure, prayer cure,
divine healing and tho like.
At Albany the other night the com
mittee on public health gave a hearing
to the opponents of the bill. Many
eminent Christian Scientists weio pres
ent and In their protests covered vari
ous phases of the subject; but we wish
to direct attention especially to tho
published reports of the testimony of
Carroll K. Norton, who Is well known
to Scrantonlans ns perhaps the ablest
expounder of the Kddy cult In the
field. Mr. Norton was uccompanlcd by
Geoige V. Klntcr, of IlulTalo, and tho
testimony of these two, as currently
reported, Is certainly Interesting.
Mr. Klnter, for example, we follow
the New York Sun's report was asked
whether he hud equnl powers over sur
gical und medical diseases, to which
he replied "Yes." Ho declaied that he
had cured all kinds of diseases, even
the insane. He asserted that he could
euro by tho "absent" treatment,
through menns of n telephone, tele
gram or postal card, as well us If the
person was with lilni. He did this
simply by praying. Where there Is a
failure ho attributed it to tho family
Interfering by aiding the faith cure
with medicine, or the patient not hav
ing complete faith. Dr. Van Fleet
asked Mr. Klnter If he would treat
cerebral ubscess, a fracture or small
pox by mental process, and he replied
that he would. After a whispering
with Mr. Norton ho added that h
would take a person suffering with a
broken bone to a surgeon. "Hut somo
day wc will have the power of mental
surgery," he declared. Following Mr.
Klnter, Ir. Norton offered borne In
formation. Says tho Sun:
lip hubniittcd affidavits showing cuicsj that hid
been performed by Clirislliii S lentM", ami alii
t i)ll f what he had done In tli.it line. Ho said
that by his mental treatment anil without any
other agency he had innoud a lUhbcne out uf
a child's throat.
Dr. lluber asked it he would tic.it a horsi
suffering with a nmc houlilcr with a liniment.
"No, air. I have uued cons by tho itietiul
tiestment, and I would treat n ilcg, a horse,
or a plant the t-inio a, 1 would a human belli;
-by mental treatment."
,kcd what ho would do In case a pemn
cut an artery, ho n plied:
"Science teaches in rhanllnes., and if I cut
my hand I would put a piece of plaster on it
to prevent tho dirt from pcltinff in, and then
would uo my mli.U to btop Inflamiration or poii
onlnsr. Why, by the nc uf tny mind t have birn
able tu ftop an umuual How of blood In an In
atant This bleeding to death only exists In your
mind. ou hae heard ol the student who w n
told he wm bleeding to death and they pouted
water heated at a blood teuiperatuie on bin aim
ami ho died of fright."
-Mr, Norton talci he would ue mental tic.it
ment alio to close a eln or aitciy that hid
been severed. He rctited an Incident of a boy
having gone down In the water for the third
time, being under tho water for fifteen mir.ntes,
nnd laid on the dock apparently lesd. JIi. Nor
lull said lie just went to woik with hi, mental
titatmuit and did not uso any of the ngom ir,
that arc generally cmplojed in resibtltatnu
diowning person,, and aftei a half hour of such
lmrital treatmint the bn tame lo life und be
gin to throw witei otr lilt stotmeh without
being rolled over a barrel or tuth other device
ccmumn to evcrj body's mind.
Of courso, to persons eager to credit
tho improbable, supernatural und pre
posterous, comment with respect to
such assertions Is wasted. Their cre
dulity, like the ailments of infanc,
must run its couise. Put there an
persons in every community th-y
probably average n majority w io,
while disbelieving In fealpe pretences,
yet have minds open to demotiHttated
truth. AVhy not let them have proof
of Mr. Norton's assertions? An easy
way to establish his claim is
for hun, In the presence of a com
mittee of citizens, to cut ills throat
and then , by mental treatment, self
uppllcd, knit together the severed
veins and arteries &o as to bo as goojl
When tho logic of Chtlttlan Science
Is thus carried home by the men who
gain their living by It, skepticism W
bound to dwindle. ,

"As everything in tegard to King lldward Vil
seems to be of public interest nowadays, I am
icinindeil of a little Incident during his vi.ilt
to this country when ho was Prlneo of Wales,"
said Colonel II. 11. head, of Philadelphia, to a
Post repoiler at Cliamberlln's. "New York city,
I where I then resided, was excited over his pres-
I ence, ami great demonstrations were made in his
' honor. Uroadnay was piufusely decorated, and
mi the day that he was escorted along that

lespect to Uritain's futuie sovereign. I can't re-
I member tho exact spot, hut It was somewhere
on lower Ilroadway, that a huge Inscription had
been hung out, which read thus: 'Welcome to
the Prince o Wales, may it be many jeara be

WILLIAM L. WILSON MEMOBIAL
In Ttcw of the great public service, the broad
patriotism and beautiful tralta cf character which
adorned the life of tho late William U Wilson,
his friends throughout the Union have deter
mined to erect to his memory a memorial
worthy of his life and character. Jn deter
mining tho form that such memorial should
take they have been greatly Influenced by the
follow-In j facts I
Whsn Mr. Wilson was elected president of
Washington and 1a e university, in the year
1W7, he found that the re was no chair ot
economies In the university, and upon examina
tion found tint there was no such distinct chair
In any Southern university. Ills public lfs
hat shown hlin tlie Importance) of inculcating
In the minds of the Joung men of the country
sound financial and economic slews. So lm
pressed was he with this thought that out of h1!
own meager salary he established and largely
supported a Chair of Kconomlcs, the funds of tho
university not permitting of such expenditure.
Ills friends have therefore concluded that no
more fitting and enduring; monument ran be
erected to Ids memory than the endowment, ol
the Chair of llconoinics which he himself estab
lished, and for several jesrs maintained, In the
university, lo be known as the William U Wltson
Chilr of 'Keonomlcsj and that the memorial
may be worthy of the man In whoso honor It '
creeled, ami that the services of the highest
scholarship may be secured In carrjlng out thl
purpose, they have been Impressed with the pro
priety and Importance of raising at least $100,000
for this purpose. Tho undersigned committee
has been selected to take charge of and prosecute
the work to a completion, and It earnestly ap
peals to the friends cf education tluoughout the
Union, as well as to Mr. Wilson's personal friends
and lo those who honor and exalt personal virtue
and pitrlothm, to aid In effecting the desired
