would have killed the city and brought
capital and labor alike to grief. It
was h cancer In the heau of local

severe. But In the end It will piove
salutary. The power for mischief of

was unexploicd, but a pait has since
been tiaveled. A third area of 57,000
square miles nearly twice ns laiRe as
Scotland lies betwen the Lewes., Pelly,
and SUiklue livers. Between the Pelly
and Mackenzie livers Is another laige
tract of 100,000 squaie miles, or about
double the size of England. It includes

that no American disputes or falls to

peisonal good will of the commander-in-chief

demeanor of Admiial Cervera, during

so disastrously for the country he
served, lias been unexceptionable and
has attr.n ted and deseived the icspect
of the civilized woild. It pioves the
truth of tho assertion that manliness

While the public opinion of the
American people has been at all times

A SUGGESTION TO MR. SHAFFER
From Ihe Philadelphia Times
Y foim of ctganiiatlon can flourish or leng
endure in this country that does not recegnl.e
the piinriple of peisnnal liberty, which must be
the foundatiin of eier) demociacv. Tlie oigani
ration of workmen for the better protection of
their own rlgtts it rf the greatest value, so
long at its Jurl-dlctlon is confined to hos who
adhere to it of their fire will. When it becomes
an instrument of coercion, withholding fiom an
indiiat rlout man the libeity of his own labor,
and denilng anv rights of the iltuen but thor
confened by it own membmhip, the gmd
seiue of the American pjople neier will sutain
It. When Mr binder threatens tn cairy the steel
strike Into politics, he ought to cct thlt thought
clearly into his mind.
SOME NEW MUSIC.
Three sacred snngt, iccently published by the
Oliver Ditson company, are attracting attention,
"Jesus, Be My Savloui," by Dradford Campbell,
for high voice n E flat, ts an rffectlie setting
ot a familiar hjmn which is impressively worked
nut "The Song of Ktetnltj," by ficorge It.
Sewn to woids by funds V Hubbard, Is for
medium voice in C. and leads with much tempo
and metrical vaiicty to an admmhle climax..
The accompaniment is made notable by a most
pleasing me of chromatic t. "As Pants the Weari
ed Hart," by Waller fioold, for high or medium
voice in K. flat, l a comparatively simple and
entirely singable song with an obilou. melody
and a moving climax.

secular songs, "Mend Low. O Husk) Night," " V

EDUCATION OF WOMEN.
from the Chicago Ilecordllcrsld,
All the pedagogical theorizing of the sxpert
thinkers at a teachers' convention cannot shike
Ihe logic of the contention made by Dr. (1,
Manley Hall at Detroit that "svomtn should b
educated for wifehood and motherhood." In ls'0
no less than 13,3.2,7t, of the adult female popu.
lallon of the United States were either married,
widowed or dlioiced, Thlt means that the nur
tied state Is the destiny of fully SO per cent, of
the glrlt who reach matutlty, and ought to set
tle the question of what should be the continu
ing objective in the education of women. Many
educators vigorously dltaonted from President
Hall on the proposition that modem higher edu
cation unlit women for wifehood and mother
hood, but en the miln contention that educa
tion should fit them for these, the highest func
tions of the perfect woman, no man In hi right
mind can seriously challenge. If he did the
voice of .Valine, speaking through the countless
ages of human history, would rebuke him,
The controiersy naturally retolset Itself into a
question of xhat kind of education best fits a.
nonun to fulfill the function for which Saturn
designed her. President Hall contend that thi
Ideal education of woman for wifehood and
motherhood requires a ayiaratlon of the sexes
and a different course '3 training and study
from that which It dcslfned for men. He fur
ther contends that such an education will not
unfit women for those railings In which thotn
whn are not fortunate enough to beioms wises
and mothert might engage tn support them
selves. In fact, it Is his belief that training to
ward these end, which is based upon the physi
cal nature and endowments of women, would
better fit them for self-support.
il would seem tn require nothing more than a
superficial knowledge of the sexes lo impress one
wit?) the fact that Ihe tniths enunciated by
President Hall are self evident. They stand upon
the Immovable, unvarying laws of Nature. Thn
ludustiial tendencies of the ace cannot com

This action is taken for the purpose of protecting legitimate
contestants and preventing the possibility of any speculator from
entering the last day or two and purchasing a $1,000 scholarship
by presenting the names of his friends as new subscribers and
paying for them himself. While nothing of this sort was attempted
last year, the close of the contest demonstrated that it would have
taken much less than $1,000 to have purchased the first special
reward, as the winning contestant had only secured for The
Tribune less than $400 in new subscriptions. The Tribune desires
to protect tne contestants that are working so nobly for it and will
use its best endeavor to have every feature of the contest perfectly
fair, and it wishes it distinctly understood that the rewards of
fered arc in no sense for sale, but will positively go to the con
testants who secure the largest number of points, which will be
credited only lor new and legitimate subscribers.
The Special Rewards:
Scholarship in Lafayette College $1,000
Scholarship in Swarthmore College 1,000
Scholarship in Stroudsburg Normal School 675
Three Scholarships in Scranton Business
