IT IS A CURIOUS hut interest inf
ract that for several yearn past
citizens and associations in I.ti
r.erne county deslrhiR legislation
nt lliirrisbiirR have been unable, lo se-
ure. it throiiRli I Up Luzerne represen
tatives and have in many instances
t-oiifrht help from Lackawanna. In
worthy instances tills help has been
willingly bestowed and this willhiRness
should and will continue. But it Is
timo the republican leaders of the
mother rounly realized that Luzerne,
is hiR enough to paddlo her own canoe.
If instead of nnpfKlnfr at everybody
who Rels head tip In politics, the Re
publicans of old Luzerne would choose
a leader, give him loyal, support am?
pull together for county and section,
ic would not bo necessary to ro becr
pins for favors at the stato capital;
they could make and enforce their own
terms. Their county is an empire in
wealth, resources and population and
its proper place is not at the tail end
but at thi; bead of tho procession. In
stead or heiuR powerless both to ef
fect reforms within I lie parly and by
kickine; over tho traces, Luzerne iiiIrIu
Vie furnishincr Rovernors again, and
Supreme court .iudpes and men in the
oilier high places of government.
Rut till? can only be accomplished by
constructive effort. Sitting on tho
leine anil making faces at those who
pass by never did and ii'ver will ac
complish more than momentary an
noyance. It is not a sign of cither
goodness or greatness. Tho men peo
ple respect arc men who take bold and
do things. There are men of this kind
plenty of them in Luzerne county,
but hitherto they luivo neglected poll
tics. It is time for them to get in the
game and put their county politically
where it belongs.
The surrender of Cieneral Cailles will
wind up tho skirmish business at Ma
nila. Cailles is the last, of tho mis
guided followers of Aguinaldo to make
any showing in tho way of resistance.
There is now no reason why tho IKli

A Celebrated Case.
THE TRIAL at Jersey City of
.John Rarker fir the at
tempted assassination of
Rev. Dr. Keller combines
nil the elements of dramatic interest
which can enter into a court case anil
will undoubtedly be followed by news
paper readers with notable eagerness.
So far as made public, tio facts aro
those: Darker, a man previously of
good reputation, claims bo was -.old by
his wife, a nervous woman who had
not been in good health, that eighteen
months prior, Rev. Dr. Keller, a re
spected and popular clergyman of Ar
lington, X. J had committed a crimi
nal assault upon her. She had, it la
alleged, feared to niako an earlier
avowal of the fact and her confession
tinally came in ronsoquonep of words
spoken in delirium. Thereupon Barker,
without further inquiry, took a pistol,
approached Rev. Dr. Keller, and shot
him in tho face, blinding ono eyo and
iiearly.cHUsiug the clergyman's death,
As oiiji readily be understood, public
opinioijjlu Arlington is sharply divided
on tliPituibjcjct. of tho clprgynmn's in
lioeemg or, guilt. All kinds of conjee,
t tiros hjivo found their way into print,
the most common ono being that Mrs.
Barkerthnadp her accusation in good
faith hiJt under tho spell of a halluol-'
nation arising from 111 health. Whether
a wlfo ju nonuiil health could conceal
from her husband for eighteen months
all knowledge of a crime such as sho
charges the minister with having com
mitted hns elicited a voluminous dis
cussion in' the medical and secular
piess. So, also, has Iho question
whether upon her unsupporlcd con
fesslontaklng into account tho fact of
her Invalidism, the husband was JustL
tied onSluimnu grounds for certainly
thero Ifiio Justification in law In eon
stltutlnfe himself into an Impassioned
avengeft offering to his victim nelthei
explanation nor defense,
Tho discussion has been even wider;
It has 'considered thu whole question,
admittedly a rtejlrato one, of tho temp.
Uitlous 'to which clergymen more than
most men are subjected front women
of highly developed emotional natures,
who, without realizing It, often forget
that the best minister is never more
than human, and when young, unmar
ried anil Impressions hie. is more easily
tempted, than (critics of the rare lapses
traceable to the cloth are fair-minded
enough to admit.
And bo it Is that the trial at Jeffrey
Citv p,Dpcals to a Wide variety of the
fundamental elements of human Inter
enl, tin prm-eoillniiM will citRHRe the
attention of all clashes or roitilors.

Vacation Schools and Play.
IT WOULD be a very unwise thing
to give up the calling of public
attention lo the luck of vacation
schools and summer playgrounds
In Scrantott for the classes or children
who cannot leave the city In summer
and who lwvc no play place but the
streets. It Is well to bring often the
concrele picture of what these tin for
children elsewhere. Of one opened last
Saturday for Ihe summer wo read:
"Thp casual passerby, looking Into the
dusty, uninviting plot, uneheeied by a
single blade of grass, would probably
wonder why permission to enter
should be so Joyous an event as the
eager, beaming faces proved it lo be,
but the fact that f.vcn so unattractive
a place Is so valued is the strongest
proof of Us necessity. Without It the
children would have no playground but
the street, with Us dangers and few
"In less than a minute after the gate
swung open every swing and seesaw
was occupied, boys were swarming
over the parallel bars, and sand beds
worn being converted into forts and
" 'One of the great advantages of the
playground,' said the chairman, Ms Itn
constant'inculcatlon of .lustier! and un
bclllshnoss. Last summer Iho improve,
niont was most marked. Mojs who at
the beginning were a constant trouble
because of their selfish wish to keep
possession of things they enjoyed, at
Its close were self-constituted guaidl
niis of tho rights of others. The girla
give less fro'uble at any time, and Iho
larger girls are real little matrons In
their helpfulness.' "
That is ono of many similar scenes
In Now York; Philadelphia, Chicago,
and some smaller cities duplicate I hem.
This year Philadelphia adds to the op.
portunities a. "school out of doors" In
tho park on certain days in hot
weather. The suggestion came from
Dr. Kdward l.rnoks, that city's wise
and liberal siiperinlendciil of schools,
and the season or "public school in
Fairmount park opened hist week, the
first district in the city to act upon
the permission being 'Little Italy," the
children bringing I heir own leu cents
for car laic. In almost every instance
they have earned Ihelr illines, and have
been saving Ibein up ror this delight
ful purpose or 'school mil of doors.' "
That Is worth meditating on.
The possible successors of Senator
Piatt are becoming as numerous as
the prospective tourists to the Pan
American. Zionism's New Appeal.
DP.. IIKRZL, ihe head or the
Zionist movement for .lew
Isfh colonization of Pales
line, in Iho course of his
latest impiu-siouod appeal for funds
declares that "dc-pitc every misrep
resentation, the Sultan or Turkey Is a
friend of the Hebrews. Indeed, 1 say
boldly that the Hebrews of the world
have no better friend than tho ruler
of Palestine. Shall they miss this un
precedented opportunity of laying tho
ghost of the llcbiew question, and
ending the tragedy of 'The Wandering
Ho goes on to make a special call lo
"the Hebrews ol" America." It is but

which tl'.c Jewish colonists were to bo

trust in Loudon was two million
pounds, and that "only" a. million and
a half of this sum is wanting. "The
magnates of the race," he writes,
"might well give themselves tho lux
ury" of supplying It, "but," ho mills'
"whether by Hebrews or true Chris
tians tho sum must be raised." So
thai it is lo the Christian church that
Zionism Is now looking. This s cer
tainly a cheering sign of tho wearing
away or old-time prejudices.

W. II. Taylor called the attention or
the board to a "chaser" to the "Kip
per" bill which has been passed by the
slate legislature which gives tho city
councils great scope in tho matter or
levying taxes. This was a. matter nT
vital importance to the cily which he
believed called (nv prompt action by
the boa id. He suggested the appoint
ment or a. conimiltee to endeavor to
pi event the signing ol' the bill IT II has
not already ben signed.
There was considerable discussion
over the "chaser" to tho "Ripper" anil
itwas thegeneral sentiment voiced that
now, more than ever before, it be
hooves the boa nt to do what it can to
see that honest, sterling business men
are placed in councils who will see to it
that the tax levy is not raised to a.
point that will injure the cily. Mr.
Taylor's inollon prevailed and a com

Taylor, Hither Keller anil R. 11. Pat
