Questions and Answers. "V "X" rE ARK always Rlad to 1m- part Information to the Times. It asks us four questions In .1 rmbllnp Kind of way and, while they are of no particular Importanrc, we proceed to answer them In the order of their ask- Inp: (1) Do we approve of the ripper law? As applied to Peranton. we do. It has Riven the city an administration sen f rally i-atlsfactory to the people and destined, we believe, to be better liked the older It prows. (2) Do we approve of the Focht and Emery street railway bills? We do. They make rapid transit a possibility and afford a means of securing In this city a street railway service that will fulfil public requirements. (3) Do we approve of the candidacy of Rothermel for district attorney of Philadelphia? We are not worrying about it. It Is AVanamakerlsm over apaln and while picturesque Is not like ly to be formidable. (4) Do we approve of the rlpplnp of Colonel Hitchcock? We do not. Nor of the ripping of his predecessor, Frank Clemons. And we call the Time at tention to the fact that the man who ripped them is ripping- no more. Anything else? South African war news will prob ably have to occupy an unimportant corner for a few days, until we le.trn what the polf players ate doing. The Tendency Toward Suicide. THAT SUICIDE Is on the in crease is a fact well estab lished. Although accurate statistics of suicide for the United States as a whole have never been compiled, Dr. V. S. Crum, of Kast Orange, N. .1., has collected figures covering SO years in five American cities and they are Instructive: San New. New Chi- Phih. Wan. Teriod. ark. York. racn. delphla. civo. U71-M ... 11.4 U.l 12. 7.3 jrt0 lKfl-Sn ... 0.3 i2.: n.j 41 , 1WJ-SS ... 12 1 1IJ M.7 ?r, 3 s IE'6-flO ... IS 7 liU 1H.1 0 1 "7 1 1!1-!K ... IS ft 10.1 037 rtn 3,"7 ll'.fi-lOnO . lfl.5 23.S 03.0 ,, f. t7'2 It wilt be noted that, while the per centages In these cities vary greatly, there is almost n uniform ratio of In crease. Could the figures of the whole country be collected accurately there can De uttle doubt that the ratio of in crease, would be found to he general and rapid. Dr. Halg. the well-known exponent of the ills resulting to health from the uric-acid diathesis, has re corded his belief that mental depres sion and suicide are due to errors of circulation In the nerve centres, these errors being due to excessive uric add in the system, this excess being present from errors of diet. The Medical Rec ord thinks it might be worth the while of some Investigator to follow this train of reasoning and to ascertain the kind and quantity of food consumed In the countries where suicide is most prevalent; and Its suggestion is cer tainly a good one. As a people we give more heed to the physical care of dogs and horses than of men and women. It is time for civilization to remedy its own notor ous abuses, of which excessive nerve, waste is one. It begins to look as though the prom ising element known as "liquid air" would never be available for family use. Hope for Consumptives. T -JS,HH mountain hospital bo. A. caiie.n, or rather, the cottage ,""." colony for the treatment and cure of consumptives, on Gr$en Mountain In the range ex tending.eastward of White Haven and Wilkes-Barre, is now to be materializ ed into actual existence. As Tribune readerg.know, from our full report a few weeks ago, the work of the as sociation which planned this mountain sanitarium has been sufficiently fruit ful In jres.ults, though carried on in city environments, to more than Justify the founding of such a sanitarium. The recently adjourned legislature ap proprlaJ,e.4.Hth9 necessary sum for foundlrJJTthe "hospital and assuring Its permaifcnee. The farmhouse on the selected site will fojm the nucleus or the hospital, end tedts for patients will be pitched near that for the present season. The work Sjr building an administration building will be presently begun and that of cottages will follow. In using tents the hospital colony will bo carry ing out the samo plan of life for those with threatened or Incipient lung troubles that as wo have already not edwill, under the supervision of Forei-try CoinmUsloner Dr. J. T. Roth rock, be made available in t,he stale's Pike county forest reserve. This s subBtntlully the same system nifiUipd of outdoor life and treat- ment that ha nftnred many such patlfntH In the Arllrnnrlackfi nnd In the high yilenteati.1 of New Mexico and Arizona. It l.i becomlnK every year more thoroughly understood that con sumption, taken early, Is a curable disease, and thnt even In much later starjes can be ameliorated, and life prolonged for usefulness. The Pekln deadlock, as all have sus pected. come3 from the fact that nearly every foreign minister in the city has Insisted upon being' the whole ndmlnln. tratlon rather than a representative of his government. Chlnn at Home and Here. NOT LONG AGO we had oe caslon to refer to an Aus tralian correspondent's de tailed account sent to n prominent London newspaper of the Influence and high mental, moral ami social standards of the large con? tlngent of Chinese merchants in Aus tralia, and of their desire for govern mental reform In their native land. Now Sir Claud MacDonnld, Great Hrltaln's able representative In "the Flowery Kingdom" has been bearing testimony that he finds the Chinese "strong In trade, commerce and labor: that In Japan they are the accountants In the banks; that In the Philippines they are superior to the native race. There may he a yellow pet II," he con tinues, "or there may not. but there will certainly be a yellow wonder." Rut these tributes to Chinese ability in Industrial and commercial life will make all the more determined the opposition before the next congress to the organized movement Just initiated among the Chinese in the United States against the renewal of the Chinese exclusion net. Speaking of Minister Wu's brilliant Fourth of July address one Philadelphia paper said it should make this nation "ashamed of Its Chinese exclusion policy." Rut. while the American people In general have n very high regard for Minister Wu personally, the paper just quot ed will find very few to share Its con clusions. President MeKlnley'8 Indian territory proclamation Indicates that the pres ent Oklahoma boom will be unattended by shotgun duels and "desert steamer" races over the newly-acquired lands. To Aid Working Girls. THAT THR long-continued practice of medicine tends to inculcate rational ideas of humanity and to genetate practical methods of bettering human conditions Is well established, and if It were not, the will of Dr. W. II. D.ily, of PIttshurg, would go far to establish it. Dr. Daly, whose unexpected MiMde some weeks ago will he recalled, left an estate valued at $150.fj00, and all of It save some minor bequests is devoted to the "basic endowment, founding, estab lishment, and maintenance of a home or homes for industrious girls and wo men, without respect to age or sect." After providing that the home is to be known as the Athalla Daly home, In honor of Dr. Daly's deceased wife, it is directed that a proper charter is to be obtained forthwith by the executors and trustees. The contributors of $10 or more to the fund for the home are to he the constituent voters who shall elect the board of managers annually from among the ontrlhutors to man age the home. The will continues: The aim and effect of the Athalla Daly home or homes Miall be to fur nish home, shelter, protection, Instruc tion nnd Improvement to industrious girls and women, while either in or out of employment, at the lowest possible cost commensurate with maintaining the proper sense of self-respect and ambition on the part of the benefici aries, who shall desire or require the shelter of a plain, comfortable and cheerful home, surrounded by good In fluences, attended by proper nnd whole some amusement, presided over by kind nnd friendly guardian onicetp, known to be interested In the Kappl ness, prosperity, self-respect nnd wel fare of the beneficiaries. To those hon estly out of employment, especially in shops', sewing and servant girls or others run down physically by over work, misfortune or anxiety, there shall be tho most generous consider ation given In every way to their res toratlon to health and industry and employment secured for them. To girls who have strayed from the path of rectitude there shall bo a helping hand extended toward restoration to the paths of propriety and Industry. This class of girls can bo cared for in one of the branches of the home separ ately. There shall be evening courses of lec tures and training during nine months of each year, given by women who are experienced housekeepers on the duties of housekeepers toward servant girls and other relevant matters. There shall be lectures In tho same manner given by women, if possible, who are, or were, formerly servants themselves, uppn the duties of the servants toward housekeepers, one another nnd other relevant subjects. There shall be lee tures and other papers read by mer chants on the duties of merchants and other employes of f,mnle labor, clerks, shop girls nnd others, on the duty of employers to their employes with jofer ence to their preservation of health, comfort nnd deportment. There shall be lectures nnd papers read and train ing given by competent shop girls or other employes or those who fotmerly were such, on the needs, tho duties and deportment by &uch employes towurd their employers. A cooking school and training In all house and chamber work shall bo a department In each of the homes. It Is directed that a system of an nual cnah bonuses or rewards shall be established for long, faithful and con tlnuous service of servant, sewing and shop girls, If possible, similar to that of the German Housewives' association, of New York. The trustees of the home or homes are to be the Judges of the courts of Reaver nnd Allegheny coun ties and tho mayor or chief municipal officer of Plttbburg, Allegheny, Heaver and Hiiflcn, Certainly no better monument could have been left to Dr. Daly's name. The agitation for Illuminated street signs visible at night continues In New York and will go on until some- thing Is done to mnke easier the noc turnal searehlngs of the uninitiated. One of these djys a similar agitation will develop In Scranton and' then councils wilt have trouble. "Wo forget because we must and not because we will," wrote Matthew Arnold. The ever-ctowdlng events of dally life left few people In nil the land save the surviving near nnd dear of the one hundred and seventy-one vic tims of the awful Hoboken pier flte of June so, 1800, to remember that cal amity when the first anniversary of the awful calamity came. The North German Lloyd Steamship company, however, was one of those who remem bered the victims. A granite monu ment erected to their memory was dedicated on Sunday at Flower Hill cemetery, North Rergen. with fitting ceremonial. In the plot all hut twen-ty-two of those who lost their lives In that terrible fire are buried. The names of the twenty-two are on the nronze tablet with the others. It Is well they should be so given memorial. All Historic Landmark. OF THR b-autlftll city parks In Philadelphia, laid out In Penn's original plan for the city and catefnlly held for the people ever since, Lognn Square Is the one made memorable by being the site of the fair, In June, 1S6I, of tho United Stales Sanitary commission. For a period of twenty days tinder the heavy canopies stretched from one to another of the magnlllclent trees that make the park gloilous the place was thronged. The net proceeds came to $1.010.0;. On the 10th of June the fair was visited by President and Mrs. Lincoln, trhe announcement Is now made that Logan Square has been selected by councils as the site for a monument to the soldiers and sailors of the war for tho union, and it is also, most fittingly, proposed to erect there a tablet commemorative of the great fair and of President Lincoln's presence there. m Mr. Cleveland, whose letter to The Tribune we published yesterday, is very angry at us for quoting the offi cial report read In the Rrltish par liament, showing the enormous num ber of deaths In the reconcentrado camps established by tho Rrltish gen eral In South Africa, and Into which he Ins crowded the Roer non-combatants, an official report that has stirred indignation throughout Eng land. Mr. Cleveland asks whether It were better to leave the Roer women and children to starve on the farms or to "feed them in the camps." The English people, now that they have begun to find out what their general and armies In South Africa are doing, do not regard the matter In the op timistic light our correspondent pre fers. The results of "feeding them In camps," as told by the official death lists. Is evidently not accepted by people at home as either necessary or in anywise redounding to the national honor. It Is announced that the site chosen for the St. Louis exposition of 1903. in centennial commemoration of Jeffer son's addition of an empire to the United Slates, is a most beautiful one. Rut we beg leave to remark that If the exposition Is to cover the usual six months, from May t to October fil, in that hottest of cities, there will be a great mistake made. The"how-does-thls-weather-suit-you" man roamed nbout unrestricted yester day. THE TLAIN TRUTH. From the Wllkr.vBme Iteford. The imeniiity of nun never Ins ilcviaed and nrrr ill rleui-e a f..lfui under whkh election pi unary or cenrral, will be honen nnlf ab.o. Intely honest men can he recuieil tn hold the elrtion and make the returns, llonfst elections aie pnihle under any sjstcm, hweer simple or crud. provided honest men serve on the elec tlon bo.iida. That is a simple fart, plainly Mated. LIGHT. From the quirkrneil womb of the primal gloom, The sun rolled black and hue. Till I wove him a vct for hi Kthlop breast, of the threads of my golden hair; And when the bioid tent of the tiimament Arop on Its airy pars, I peniillfd the hue of Its rcntrhlcss blue, And spangled it round with stirs. I painted the floum of Hie Kden bowers, And their leave of living cieen, And mine were the riye.5 In the sinless ryes Of Kden's virgin queen 1 And when the flend' art on the trustful heart Had fastened its mortal spell. In the silver y spheie of the first born tear To the trembling earth I fell. When the waves that huist o'er the world accurst, Their work of wrath had sped. And the Aik's lone few, the tried and tiue, fame foith among the dead; With the w-rndroiu cleams of my bridal beams I bide their trnoi vease, As I wrote on the mil of the storm's dark scroll, God's (ovenant of peace! Like a pall at rest on a senscleM breast, Mint's funeral shadow slept; Where shepherd swains on the Bethlehem plains Their lonely vigil kept, Vilien I flaibcd on their sicht the heraldi bl'ght Of Heaven's redeemlnc plan, As they 1 hinted the morn of a Saviour born Joy, joy to the outcast man! Hnual favor I show to the lofty and low, On the just and unjust I descend; K'en the blind, whose vain spheres roll )n dark nffj and tears. Feel my smile, Mie blest smile of a friend. Nay, the flower of the waste by my love is em braced, As the rose In the rjarden of kinjs; At the rbiysalii bier of the worm I appear, And lo! the gay butterfly wings. The di'soljte Morn, llkt a mourner forlorn, t'oneeals all the pride of her charms, Till I hid the bright huurs cluse the night from her bowers, And lead the young day to her arms; And when the gty Hover seeks Eve for his lover, And sinks to her balmy repose; I wrap their soft rest by tho zephyr-fanned West In rui tains ol amber and rose. 1'iom my sentinel steep, by the night-brooded deep, I ga?.e with unslumberlng eje, When the rjnoaiire star ot the mariner I', blotted fiom out of the iky; And guided by me through the merciless sea, Though sped by the hurricane's wings, Ills companies bark, lone, weltering, dark, To the haven-home safely he brings, I waken the flowers In their dew-spangled howers, the birds In thnr chamheis of green, And mwnlaln and plain glow with beauty sgsln, As they nu.k in my matlnal sheen. 0, If suh the glad worth of my presence' to earth, Though Atful and fleeting the while, What glories must test on the home .of the blest, Uvtr bright with the Deity's smile? ' -William Pitt Palmer. Press Bdreaii af the Pan-flrnerican NO AGENT has been as prominent In the success of the Pan-American Exposition as the Depart ment of Publicity under the direc tion of Mr. Mark Rennitt. The Press bureau has done some remarkable work and through Its enterprise Is dls. semlnated most of the Information regarding the progress of affairs at the great exposition. Just why. however, the Press build ing was located on the Midway exact ly opposite Rostock's animal show, no body seems to have attempted to ex plain. There Is a force of clerks In that Press building who have duties to perform and they do appear to be very busy. How on earth they are able to think or write coherently In that locality passeth the understand ing of man, or nt least, of woman. How on earth the visiting representa tives of the press who are urgently Invited to use the pleasant reading nnd writing rooms are able to accept this courtesy with any degree of lit eralness Is also past finding out. o In the first place, there are two and sometimes three or four of the most indefatigable, Irrepressible, nnd en thusiastic ballyhoos outside Rostock's show that can be found anywhere on the Midway. When the gigantic Indi vidual with the sad-looking frock coat opens his mouth the results are appal ling. When his efforts are supple mented by those of the other consci entious gentlemen whet try to be worth their salary, any body In the vicinity who Is trying to wrlfp a letter home to mother or the newspapers, Is pre pared for an Instant to believe that there are worse calamities than to be born deaf. When to their clamorlngs are added the roars of wild beasts In doors which are alleged to bo under process of training, the condition Is simply Indescribable. There Is one lioness In a cage ex posed to the view of the passers-by that, must be. a trial to her family. Either she Is an uncommon scold or else she has the toothache, for she keeps up such an everlasting com plaining In a loud tone of voice that nt times almost drowns out the dis turbances made by her rivals on the other side of the bars. Then occa sionally the elephants behind the scenes do a great deal of expostulat ing and altogether tho person who can compose any sort of a sane letter across from Bostock's ought to go out. as a war correspondent or an apprentice in a bollershop. Probably it's all right, however. Bostock's is a good land-mark and unsophisticated newspaper folk are sure to find tho Press building. Possibly, too. It Is generally understood that they will spend most of their time on the Mid way. Then it Is close to the East Amherst gate, which is the most pop ular entrance. 0 There are nice people in the Press building. They are up stairs and they greet you wearily, but courte ously. You needn't expect to find Mr. Rennitt, he Is always somewhere else than where you are. He is about the best looking man on the .whole Pan American board. His understudy. Mr. Rolles. looks like an artist with his tawny, pointed beard. A Mr. Hester, who is several degrees more polite than Mr. Rolles. is quite the nicest person there. The duties of the pos. tlon seem to be making out passes, nnd as a surprising perecentage of the attendance at the Exposition has been "dead-head." he hasn't had much of a Summer holiday as might be im agined. 0 Ahout the first thing you see In the Press building Is a big registry book on the hall table. It Is temptingly open for the Inscription of your name. There is n fascination for some people In registering wherever the opportu nity occurs. They Have yielded to this fascination indiscriminately all over the place at the Pan-American. They register in every state building that has acquired such a volume. You will even see their names on the book In the hearse department in the Manufactures building, where a polite young man presides. By the way, the chief attraction here Is a funeral car, costing several thousand dollars, the principal recommendation of which is that its panels are of such highly pol ished wood that they would delude the very elect, if not the occupant, that they are made of glass. I've never been able to see why this Is such a wonderful advantage, when glass Is so much cheaper and doesn't get scratched. 0 So the people have registered assid uously and with persistence whenever possible. The women have given special evidence of the mania. In the Woman a building only club members and college women are supposed to register, hut there are others in the fat book on the table. It is astonish ing, the number of Twentieth C.t. tufy club's which are nourishing in thl land of ours. One Is consumed with wonder as to what all these women do besides belong to clubs. The very first name In the register in the Women's building Is "Theodore Roosevelt," wrlttnn in a Jerky, ner vous hand, that seems to show Its teeth. The remainder of the names belong to feminine visitors. o Oddly enough, the names written first on a certain day In the Press register were those of Mary Bryan, Ruth Rryan, William J. Rryan and William J. Bryan, Jr. There are some people who nlways parade their do mesticity before the public. I'd have liked William J. better If he had writ ten his own name first. There were other Interesting names here, the residences ranging from Waco, Texas, to Nova Scotia. One, In delicate, lady like characters, was that of "Julian Hawthorne." while Just below was "Walt McDougall" In the characteris tic strong hand, familiar to us In the famous, If irritating, cartoons in the North American. There Is a great chance at the exposition for an enter prising forger to study signatures and perfect himself in his genteel profes sion, I was going to tell you about the bull fight In Old Mexico, but It Is too late. H. C. P. IS THIS TRUE? From the fct. Louis Mirror. We are coming to the point st which we sre prone tn forgive snything to anyone if only the vile things that he does are done wh cleverness and courage. We admire the robber's "nerve." We like the brains that ran cook up a law that will le(.allie teal. We like a plunderer of the public if he can Jolly us along with a funny story. We sre positively d.ft In our admiration of that ability which wo publicly say is "misdirected." We sio cairjlne our regtrd for brains too far, when we aicept any evil thing with tolerance solely because it shows clever bialn work. "It's bstter to be crook than a erink, a knave thai fool," about expresse the moral sense ol the American "man on the street." The end of such morality must eventmlly be that the mvn who Is not t crook Is a crank, whs Is not a knave Is a fool. The business trickster, the literary trick ster, the medical trickster, the legal trickster we accept them all as "all tight" if only they "win out" by trickery. Of the crook or fraud or take in any drpirtment of life we say, "Oh, if. but he gets the dough, ' and that scabs it. The msn who protests again the donrlne Is a crank or a calamity howler. The man who be lieves in the Integrity of motive of anybody is called a "softy." When one utters a fine senll ment the query-response is: "What's in it for hlmt" All the crowd demands Is, that a man "get there," and then It honors him, blinking the means by whlih he succeed. How much longer this will continue none can say. We only know that the crowd is morally atrophied. The reign of the smart men is on 11s, which means that those reigned over sre fools. NEW BUILDINGS NEEDED. Frem the Architect snd Builder. A btnklng houw for the First Katlentl bink, A Union depot for all rallreidj which have their (ermlnus In, er which nin through the city. A market house for the benefit of the public and the farmers who supply our people dally with fresh vegetabls. A largo school building to b iK'd tn educate capital and labor, to settle sll diderences by con. fetence committees. A large, lie hoti to be filled with Ice to be uied to keep our city officials eool headed when they put In force the new ripper laws. An apirfment fictery building tn accommodate the manufacturer who has limited capital. An apartment stable to house the horse, that fallhful beast of burden. One hundred brick dwelling houses to rent at rates In reach ot tint family who ein't afford to build nor piy the rites ot rent rhirged at present In desirable residence sections. There, sre hun dreds of families doubled tip in one house to mike it possible tn live within their means. "Capital, where is thine eye?" An obervatory near Lake Scranton. built high enough to overlook Scranton. Carbondale, Wilkes- nan-e and other cities. A fence fifty feet high. bull, on the city line around Scranton, painted red, white snd blue, to remind our citizens that they should not pur chase In other cities, thtt which our own mer chant! retail at the same price, and in particu lar to keep the architects from other cities from mixing with our home artists, as there are twenty within our city limits who are ready to do jour work. GOOD ADVICE. "Plymouth Republican" in the WilkesBarre Record. One of the peculiar conditions of the public mind seems to be a deslie to tear down, to take apart and destroy miny of the good things which we hive. This point of view is by no means con fined tn those who are admittedly opposed to some particular plan or measure, but even those who favor such things are very prone tn crlticUe and find fault with details, while the thing as a whole has their approval and support. With this view o matters in general, the principle laid down by Alexinder Pope that "whatever is, is right," would read something like this, "Whatever is. Is wrong." To the right thinking voter I would My, don't tear down by finding fault and plcklm? flans, hut rather try to build up by suggesting Improvement. Remember that It requires more ability to make than to destroy, and direct your best efforts to building up, and not to tearing down. ALWAYS BUSY. Our Oxfords Low in cut. Low in price.
