Prize Story Competition.
AS ANNOUNCED elsewhere.
The Tribune has decided to
offer n merles of prlzea In a
local whort-Htory competi
tion. The prizes, while not larse, are,
iiiluclent to furnish an Incentive to
tho bilght young men and women of
Northeastern TennayUr'anla. who may
be po&seKM'il of porno literary ambi
tion. The Tilbtmo's purpose 1h to
awaken interest In the legends and
traditions of the mining Industry, as
well ns to encourage tho literary tal
ent latent among Its readers.
In connection with almost every
mine In the valley there exists a mass
of superstition, romance, and com
mlnKllnfr of fact with fiction, which, If
properly Incorporated in literary form,
uould undoubtedly possess Instruct
ive Interest, not only to many persona
living In this region, but to the great
majoilty of persons at a distance who
are utterly unfamiliar with social con
ditions In and about the coal mines.
H is not expected that tho competi
tion now started will exhaust or more
than touch the hurface of this field,
and therefore It Is intended, if tho
contest shall develop encouraging
signs, to follow It by other prize of
fers until a lespectable local llteia
turo may be built up. Such a liter
ature, while not uninteresting to tho
people of today, would In yeats to
"omo, when the business of digging
the dusky diamonds shall have passed
into history, bo Invaluable.
It may be worth while to say fur
ther that we shall care less for liter
ary form than for good substance.
Let the writers of our valley see what
they can do to reflect tho spirit of
the mining Industry Its sacrifices, Its
heroism, Its sense of loyalty and fel
lowship, and its peculiar pathos, wit
The republicans of the Sixteenth
ward should not forget today to vote

business men of the ward, and the

UNDOUBTEDLY tho adjourn
ment of the legislature from
Friday of last week to Wed
nesday of this will bo found
to haw been advantageous in the op
portunity afforded to bring the mem
bers Into mental touch with what
their constituents are thinking as to
how legislation has been trending at
the t-tate capital. It may be taken for
granted that In consequence of these
wholesome lommunlngs with the peo
ple a majority of the law-makers will
teturn to Uunl-buri; fully deteimlned:
tO To put the nlr brakes on every
chonie to manufacture superfluous
new olficcs or to Increase, without
clear necessity, the pay of men now
holding state ofllce.
(2) To halt the foolish attempt of
a few nervous politicians to override
by statute the constitutional ifcloin
of tho pie.ii). r.tthough this docs not
mean that the present intolerable li
cense of yellow Journalism should not
bo abrldRed when means to do so can
be found that will not be worse In op
eration than the disease.
v) To respect the enlightened senti
ment of tho people in favor of genuluo
ballot reform; nnd
(I) To practice in every grant of
statri funds the closest economy con-t-lttcnt
with good government.
0 is but fair to ndd that n legis
lature Is not to be judged by the fool
blllj Introduced before it, nor by tho
bluSed reports circulated about It in
newipapcru eager to discredit the
political organization by which it is
believed to be controlled. It must bo
Judged by tho measures which it sends
to the governor. No bad bill has gono
to him yet; and it will bo time to
snort when ono gets that far along.
Complaint Is mado because tho
Judges In an adjoining county have to
vorfc on jn averago of 46 weeks In tho
yeaC We know of several editors who
rsteiem themselves lucky to get off for
a fortnight's vacation annually after
fifty weeks of toll.
Tlfij political writer of the Phlladel
phlrti; Press seems to be worried by
the 'hallucination that the new federal
court bill has been framed In tho In
terest of some particular Individual
for Judge. Undoubtedly,' when tho
bill becomes law, the question of se
lctstlng a Judgo will nroclvo atten
tion. No doubt theie will be soma
sood-natuted strife amt.ng t hi, friends
of several aspirants; hufar more lm
X'ortdiit tl.n the fj,ue?tlon of a pnrtlc.
tilar Jurist's promotion Is the question
of facilitating tho business of the peo
ple In tho federnl couits, and In bring
ing Justice within easy reach of every
man, woman and child. Tho Press can
take it for granted that this Is the
real motive bthlnd the bill.
The way to make Scranton prosper
ous in the Twentieth century is not to
encourage war between capital nnd
labor or to applaud every strike that
occurs, irgardlrss of merit or demerit.
That, on the contrary, It picclsely
tho way to stagnate business nnd nnr
row labor's opportunity for steady em
ployment. Is the Ripper Constitutional ?
IT Irf AN Interesting circumstance
Hint while tho chief objection
urged against the ripper bill Is
that It confers appointive power
upon tho governor, those who are us
ing this objection In the manufacture
of hostile public opinion privately
confess tl.U should tho bill become
law they have no hope of overthrow
ing It In tho courts because of that
clnusc. Their expectation Is that If
the bill In Its present form should be
taken beforo the supreme court It will
1m found defective, not in the giving
of the appointive power to the gov
ernor, but In extending the period of
gubernatorial appointment 'ono year
beyond the next ensuing municipal
election, Upon this expectation they
base their hope of successfully at
tacking the completed measure, but
It Is evident from the earnestness
with which ithey nro preparing to
combat the bill's progress through the
house that they do not feel wholly
confident of maintaining their con
tention In the courts.
It they felt sure that the courts
would overthrow the measure tiny
would save a lot of money, time and
worry by laying back while their fac
tional opponents In the legislature
ran things In their own way.
This extension of the appointive
term Is one of the features of the bill
to which objection may properly be
taken. In view of the radical chango
wi ought in city government by the
contemplated charter, It Is dllllculc
to see how tho Initiation of that char
ter could bo brought about otherwise
than by temporary appointment.
A parallel Instance Is that of counties
going beyond the 150,000 population
mark. Here duly elected auditors by
net of assembly are deposed and their
duties intrusted to a new oillclal
known ns the controller, nnd appoint
ive In the first Instnnce by the gov
ernor until the next ensuing county
election. This involves every essence
of the ripper feature of the now char
ter bill, with the single difference
that there Is not present In the con
troller act any factional motive or
feeling; but the question of the con
stitutionality of the governor's ap
pointment of county controllers,
which Involves alio the question of
tho constitutionality of his proposed
appointment of city recorders, has, we
understand, been pnssed upon by the
highest court, nnd his right to appoint
Reasoning by analogy, it would seem
that if the Muohlbronncr bill is con
stitutionally defective In any point it
must be only in its extension of the
appointive term beyond the first en
suing municipal election. Should tho
court take this view, the measure as
a whole would not be Invalidated, but
only that part of It. In other words,
tho election of a. recorder by the peo
ple to take tho place of the recorder
appointed by the governor would In
that event bo held one yenr sooner
than Is now contemplated In tho bill.
It is not disputed by Schley's friends
that Sampson was the commander-ln-chlof.
On him fell the responsibility
for the arduous naval campaign which
broke Spain's back. Yet because it
subordinate Is not promoted ahead of
the commander-in-chief, Schley's
friends say that tho president's nom
inations must fall. Well, lot them fall.
History will Judge.
While there Is some doubt ns to the
legality of the recent apportionment
and call for election of additional
members of common council, tho
safest way for the voter In each ward
today Is to go to tho polls and elect
a good than. If the good man shall
be permitted to take his beat, sn much
the better: It not, a good lnblt will
hav been' stalled.

It w.m a cry pretty lfclil. Mllle Leonora
P , a child of 5 or fl, came one day to the
white hone to sec Mrs. Mdvlnlc). Leonoia r
tlvrd nil startlicd and frilled and with her Ut
nnd primmest manner, to the tore. Her old
black mammy nurse was with her, and it wm
evident that Leonora hid been Instructed to bo
very polite, and nol to alt down In the prmence
of the mlstres, of the white home union premed
to do so, and, above all, to answer all que.
tlmn promptly. 1Mb the piesldent and Mi.
MtKlnlry ree lived the child. They did nil thry

vvn evidently a stood deal aed. At 1al Mm.
McKinley, olmervInK the ear of the old black;
lirimniy, proved her to sit down, ami the child,
loo, but lonora said ulmnnMilnitlj to her nurse
In nn undertone, and lioldlmr hrnelf bolt up.
" 'Vo, mammy: servant mut not sit.'
" 'Why, Irf-onora,' said Mrn. McKinley, much
amiLoeil, 'nuinmy'a an old woman. And you alt

Thought It Was a Funeral.
OVi: DAY, when George Ado waout walking
with a (itilde In the naval quarter of Klolo,
Japan, he observed coming down the street tho
head of a jreat procession. Interested at once,
he paused to watih the procession paw. On they
came, traudy In appirel, but (crave In face, flaunt
ln Hags and great banner on which were .lapa.
nee Inscriptions. The mournful chant which
announced their approach wa.1 broken only when
the kettle drums or toin-toma weru pounded or
the cymbali clashed. As the weird and solemn
precision approached, Mr. Ado uncovered and
bowed Ida bead reverently, It being his custom
and settled principle Invariably to show the
hlghcid. lespoct for the rites and ceremonies of
the peoples with whom he conies In contact. He
Is a linn believer In the doctrine, "When In
Koine do an the llomans do." Ills face was very
The procession was long nearly a block In
length but Mr. Adc remained uncourcd during
the entire time of Its pacing. Once or twice he
glanced at the guide out of the corner of his
cje. He thought he saw on the. min's face a
piiydcd cvprcslon. I'inilly, when the proces
sion had p,itted lie replaced his hat arid ad
dressed himself to the wondering guide.
"Ituddha?" he Inquired.
The guide looked more puzzled.
"Shinto?" then nked Mr. Ade.
"I do not understand," the guide finally said.
"Was not that a funeral procession!" Inquired
A light began to dawn upon the guide's face.
He almost smiled ns he replied:
"No; tooth powclerl"
The Japanese, It seems, are rapidly learning
American wajs even In advertising. A lsttor
to Japan may now see. as In some portions of
America, nlmo-t every hillside plastered with ad-
scrtlcmcnts. They are cry enterprising, and,
as this incident Indicates, one of the adveitUng
methods employed Is that of having a procession
inireli thiougli the slreets.
The Ruling Passion.
THH STARR was rolling along the canyon trail
when suddenly the horses icarcd back on
their haunches as a lone highnajman with a
Winchester appeared on the scene.
"Step out of tho hearse, gentlemen, and hands
up!" he ordered.
Ono bv one they climbed out, with elevated
hands. Tho lilghwiv man relieved the party and
several tlinea was forced to remind one nervous
little man to keep bis hand from his pocket.
"What's the matter with you!" he finally
roared. "You make another move like that and
I'll pump the slugs in joul"
"Please let me," pleaded the little man, as his
hand again slid toward his pocket.
"Please let you," roared the desperado,
"Please let jou perforate me? You're imposhg
on my generosity, sonny. Look out I Look
out! Keep jour mlt away from that rocket or
by the eternill"
"Put It won't hurt jou!" protested the little
man, "It won't hurt you at alt! Stand Jut
as jou are now and keep jour rifla leveled.
There! that's it!"
And while the hlghwavman was recovering
from his astonishment the little man had flashed
1 U kodak and snapped the button. IndlanapolU
Could Not Be Paired.
IDOritT if thero can bo found anywhere the
evidence of a moic graceful compliment paid
to a military general than was uttered by tho
late (Juecn Vktoila, says a London correspondent.
Not every ono recalls the fact that the common
boot now sci generally worn was invented by
the Duke of Wellington and for years bora hl
When prime mlnUter tho duke isltcd Windsor
Castle to consult with the queen on an impor
tant state matter. The day was clamp, following
a heavy rain, and as the meeting was to be se
cret the duke accompanied the queen to an arbor
In tho castle garden. On leiving the castle the
"I hope Your Maje-tv is well shod."
The reply was: "I hive on double-soled shoes
and am securo against dampness, Dut how about
"Oh," said tho duke. "I have on Wellingtons,
and am safe."
The queen retorted: "You grace must be.
The duke: "I think not, Your Mijeatj'."
Tho queen: "You grace certainly is; there
could not bo a pair of Wellingtons."
Trifles Did Not Disturb Him.
TMlKHi; WAS once a chief engineer In the
X UrltUli navj-, relates tho Youth's Com.
pnnlnn, a patient man who had spent so many
nluhts by the beside of nn expiring boiler,
which never esplred, but kept on bursting blood
vessels and getting a death rattle In Its thou
sand throats, that ho had become reconciled
to knowing that he would be called upon to
stop leaks at all hours of the day and night fur
Hie ntt of his natural life. His only envy was
the nun who could sleep undisturbed through
the whole night. This man was Bulstrode, chief
engineer of another ship.
One night the assittant engineer sent a man
up to lluUtrode to report the gradual dlsatv
pcaranec of tho vacuum In the air pumps.
Knocking at the chlcl's door, the man sang outt
"Please, sir, the vacuum Is decreasing!"
The answer came back In a drowsy voleet
"Alll right, lleport to mc if It Kets lower."
Half an hour later the man again rapped at
"The vacuum is much lower, sir."
"Very good. Tell me If It Rets still lower."
Alter another half an hour;
"Mr. llul.trode, the sacuum Is gone, sir."
"All. rlghtt report to mc If it comes back."
A Different Kind of Time.
MinSIIAL 11. K. Rr.L of the Missouri Supreme
court, was onco taking a convict to the
(talc penitentiary, relates the St. Louis Itepulc
lie, A man on the train asked him what times
It was. The marshal replied by a shake of the
head, s he did rot know. The man then put
the same question to the convict, who was
thoughtfully gating out of the car window as the
train whirled along, and did not at first under
stand the question,
"I saj-, what time have .vou!" the man re
peated, "Oh, two years," waa the modet reply, which
paralyzed the stranger, until the conductor came
along and told him tho time of day.
