It Is proper to f.-i.v of Captain Molr
that In prlv.ito life ho will have the
hpftt wl.ilit'3 nf every one who felt
oompellofl to dissent from hlH course
In the office of recorder. There was
no unkind personal feeling; In the
movemont which lerl to his resigna
tion. The Volunteers of America.
THHRK is probably no elty
In the United States where
in the reports sent out of
a "reconciliation" of the
Bnllincton FSooths and Commander
Booth, and of the "amalgamation" of
the Volunteers of America with the
Salvation Army, have awakened more
Interest, more concern, and more dis
approval than In this city of Scran
ton, where Mr. and Mrs. Ballington
Booth are so well known and .-;i
The rniif-e of the rupture of rela
tions between them and the com
mander Is perfectly understood here.
The Commander, who is an autocrat In
his family and in the Salvation Army
more despotic than any crowned head
of a nation save Turkey's Sultan,
disapproved vehemently of the Ameri
canization of the Army methods that
was Introduced by the Ballington
Booth. "The rotation In Ihe com
mand of the Army here," which Is so
glibly announced in some papers as
' the only canre of the Rallington
Booths' action." included an entire
reversal of the majority of the
methods introduced by them as most
In line with American methods in
other matters. This "only" causae
was therefore one entirely sufficient
in Itself to command the approval
and the practical sympathy of the ma
jority of those who in this country
had been giving financial and moral
support to the younger Booths for
years before tlr- break.
The cause of the Volunteers of
America was fully t-et forth in Scran
ton immediately after its organiza
tion, by Mr. and Mrs. Ballington
Bootli in person, and its plans ox
plained, and approved hero by sub
stantial help given. The approval and
the help have never since failed, in a
very wide circle here It is perfectly un
derstood that Ballington Booth spoke
the simple truth when. In denying the
reports of reconciliation and uniting
of the "Volunteers" and the "Army,"
ho said last Monday afternoon In New
York: "The government and princi
ples of the two movements are so at
variance that a union would bo im
possible." The prison work, and the woik for
discharged convicts that has been so
largo a feature of the Ballington
Booths' work from the day that the
Volunteers woro organized has grown
in scope and In success with each
succeeding year. The "Homes of
Hope" they have established on Long
Island and In an oujlylng suburb of
Chicago, as official records give as
surance, restored almost nil nf the
inmates whom they have received
from New York and Illinois peniten
tiaries to honest lives.
At the present time General and
Mrs. Ballington Booth aro preparing
to start a great Industrial settlement
on a tract of over 1 .",000 acres In
Southern Ueorgla, for which the ne
gotiations are almost closed and the
plans for settlers are outlined. The
announcement Is made this week, a
little earlier than It would have been
given cut hut for the reports of an

The Teaching: of Spelling.
HE UTERAItV notices of
many leading papers make
special and approving note
of the new spelling
nook Just issued by the educational
publishers, Glnn & Co., of Boston--"Tho
Guilford Speller, with Word
Studies -find Dictionary Work," pre
pared h.Y A. B. Guilford arid Aaron
Lqvell. ,One rovlewer puts briefly
what some others describe mora amply
by sayipg; "A clmraeterlstlu feattnv
of this book Is that It does not make
spelling merely an net of memory.
The pupij Is taught t" reason and to
use the; dictionary, with the result,
It is believed, -111111 ho will cease to,
guess the spelling of words."
Tho reviewers of the book go to show
that it Is in principle a return to the
valuable and successful methods In
vogue In at any rata tho best of th
academies, 'high schools und higher
grades of the city grammar schools
of rtfty years ago, when tho "Ety
mological Dictionary" was In the
hands of every pupil of those schools
and good spelling, was the rule, the
reverse simply' the exception that
proved the rule.

That such a firm of educational book

the time ripe fur the issuing of "The

Turning a New Leaf.
HE ONLY conceivable justi
fication of a rlprer bill Is
its producing good results.
Such a production was not
possible In an administration headed
by James Molr. It Is only possible
through the appointment of a recorder
who measures up to the ofllco. The
vacancy caused by Captain Molr's
welcome resignation, a selection re
flecting the spoken wish of many
repro.-iontativo citizens, will, we be
lieve, Ire commended by a large inn
jot ity of the inhabitants of Scran
ton irrespective of pirty. It should
result in the substitution of order,
system and definite policy for the
flabby eapriclousness so long charac
teristic of our city affairs; and with
an experienced and trustworthy guid
ing hand In control, the whole force
of subordinate city officials and em
Pjoyes should fall into lino heartily
for better results. Our city's magni
tude and importance demand a lecor
der of the first class. Thanks to
Governor Stone, it now has one.
The uncertainty and turmoil of the
past few weeks have been charged
very generally In published comment,
to the ripper clause and charter, but
as a matter of fact they were due ab
solutely to the unfitness of the admin
istrator. He brought troubles upon
himself until they overwhelmed him.
A chance will now occur to test tho
new charter under better auspices.
Public opinion may well decide to
await this test before pronouncing
final judgment. The ripper invests
the recorder generously with power.
Wo have seen how this power has con
tributed to mischief when wielded ir
responsibly and on impulse. It is the
belief of the new iccorder's friends, a
belief based upon three years' demon
stration in the city executive's office,
thnt the same power, when wielded Ju
diciously and in pursuance of distinct
aims, can and will contribute, greatly
to tho promotion of good government
and of thnt spirit of public confidence
which Is tho parent of permanent de
velopment. Tho people of Sciantnn are less con
cerned over the personal vicissitudes
of office holders than they are over
the welfare of their government and
tho aid it gives to encouraging the
forces of progress. For live years the
government of Scrantnn has been the
themo of jests at home and of sur
prise elsewhere. The time has come
for the turning of a new leaf. Expec
tation will naturally and should be
high. Provided it is also fair, and
coupled with cordial co-operation, wo
have no doubt of tho vindication of
tho governor's choice,
Governor Stone believes that five
million dollars' worth of balloting
machines will not make a dishonest
voter honest, No doubt many will
ngien with him when asked to cn
press opinions at tho polls ns tr
whether tho expensive device should
be adopted In Pennsylvania.
T APPEARS, by dispatches from
Loudon, that the plans are all

Is Anything the
Matter With Scranton
STRANGER landing In th.e midst
of us and taking a general sur
vey uf the situation, would have
no reason to think that anything is
the matter with us. The stream of
tivllle Hows steadily and powerfully
through our streets. Our cosmopoli
tan crowds are as large as ever, and
walk with tho haste nnd eagerness
cliaiiiefristie of a metropolis. There
Is no sign of cessation anywhere In
the chain. els of trade. And yet,
should this visitor talk with our aver
age citizen be would be told that the
town has a black eye, strikes are
ruining It, industries are leaving us,
no money in circulation, real estate
drad, nob.idy can tell wheie we nre
going to land, etc., ad nauseam.
What has become of our nerve, our
enterprise and our courage? If we
really want the city to go to Davy
Jones' locker, by all means let us keep
up this style of conversation. Let us
stimulate our causeless fears by
gloomy caterwnullngs, as wo come
down on street or railroad car to
business. If we really desire a general
If. on the other hand, we believ
in our town let us consider tho facts:
I. A Uibutar,v population of L'flO,.
ron, mo.'t nf whom intend to stay
right here and work, cat and dress
as in the past.
:!. More actual cash paid out In this
valley every two or four weeks than
In any other locality of rame popula
tion in the country.
II. This is the natural point for
great railway shops and here they
will remain and expand when so
called cities are mowing tho grass In
their (inlet lanes.
i. utner great railway corpora
tions east an eager eye in our direc
tion and .while we are trembling, are
acquiring1 property and intend coming
our way to stay. Our facilities of
transportation, great already, will
soiiu be unsurpassed,
fi. The International Correspondence
schools are making the name of
Scranton a household word the world
over, and Instead of contracting their
operations are rapidly extending their
gignntlc plant. Few appreciate tho
scale and magnitude of this great en
terprise. fi. Our public affairs, while some
what confined, are about to assume
shape along greatly advanced lines,
We shall soon lightly talk of the late
Rome wi.s not built in a day. Our
half century of municipal life will
not be mmpletcd until lOlfi. Com
pare records with our neighbors:
while we should be better, we might
be worse. However, Iniquity Is not to
be condoned, but fought methodically,
with vigor and persistence. I'sliig
the means within easy reach, evil can
be ei united and virtue placed In power
and kept there. The "saving rem
rant" is here and not powerless when
concentrated. The Sturges jury com
missioner campaign Is a sample of
what can readily be accomplished
along l'oforifi lines If wo only say so
good and loud.
7. Wo have here the Ideal location
for great hives of Industry. Many

8, Tho removal of tho steel works
ha.H already been discounted. If this
has ceased to be the natural location
for making pig Iron, It Is better that
the Industry should go cmlekiv than
ulowly become moribund. Steel rails,
blooms and billets, together with
Miucturnl work, can and will be made
In Scranton with a profit.
There aro as good fish In the sea
as ever yet were caught, and no one
can deny that our fishermen know
where they aro und will haul their,
0. As for facilities for culture, they
aro beyon I the standard of our years.
Churches, schools, charitable insti
tutions are all excellent nnd are nbt
by any means yet fully developed.
Tho new building of the Young
Men's Christian association, when
completed, will mark an epoch. It Is
evident we are very much alive. Why,
then, talk nf general obsequies?
Kinnlly, we should drop all absurd
local Jealousies and think only of the
Greater Scranton. Instead of condo.
leuco let us have encouragement.
Enery seems a little dormant Just
now, but the virility and force that

THE INJEW YORK SUN
Money Article, Headed
published each Monday, has for 15
years been looked for with the great
est interest in banks and counting
rooms and among all financial men,
and has been respected as perhaps
the most intelligent review of the
money market and stock market. In
this article, Monday, June 3, the
Sun in the course of a review of the
business and condition of the South
western Bail way systems says: "An
other potent influence affectingAtch
inson for good is the oil discoveries.
People here have not paid as much
attention to this matter as they
should. The general tendency has
been to scout it as a craze. But
there is no longer any doubt that it
represents a permanent and almost
incalculable increase of wealth to the
Southwestern territory, and hence,
inevitably, to the Atchinson, South
ern Pacific and other railroads in that
section. These railroads will gain
much by the additional business
generally growing out of the new de
velopment, but their chief product
will be in the astonishing saving
rendered possiblo to them in the cost
of fuel. A ton of coal in oil does not
cost over $1, whereas the coal used
by the Southern Pacific nnd Atchin
son railroads last year cost between
$3 nnd $4 a ton. As the expendi
ture for this purpose is nearly 25
per cent of the total cost of trans
portation on the roads, the import
ance of the now found economy is
apparent, it menns millions of dol
lars to these railroad properties."
This article fairly represents the
trend of thought toward tho oil in
dustry among capitalists generally.
Tho magnitude of the Industry and
it3 importance as a source of wealth
is perhaps not yet appreciated by the
general public, but tho leaders in
finance recognize fully that oil and
its numerous by-products is to cut a
great nnd constantly growing fig
ure in our domestic and export trade,
the extent of which is already colos
sal, To make money in oil it is only
necessary to discriminate carefully
and invest in stock of companies
that are under practical and respon
sible management and have large
holdings of oil lands secured at low
prices. THE PACIFIC COAST AND
TEXAS Olla COMPANY is such a
corporation and this stock offers tho
best opportunity to investors of any
