can bring us victory. The champions
of thp gold standard are dprldlng fliy
an, denouncing the principles for which
he stood, and nie paving the way to
secure control of the next national con

man who will be the tool and servant

securing office alone, then why bother
about great pilnclples that Involve the
well-being of men?"
Thesp nie logical and timely ques
tions. The Democratic orators and
press gave the mneit solemn nssuinuccs
In both U36 and 1000 that the restora
tion of free silver coinage was a mat
ter Involving the highest pilnclplc;
that It was proposed as a remedy for
outrage and Injustice, whereby the shy
locks of the land wpip grinding the
faces of the poor ind tal.mg from thp
common people the birthrights of
Anipilcan citizenship. They cither
meant these assertions or they didn't
mean them. If they meant them, It
would be cowardly In 1001 and In 1004
to compound a gold bug felony or to
desert the poor of the land to their
grinding doom. If they didn't mean
them, what assurance have wp that
they mean what they say now?

An Admirable Appointment.
THK TRIIU'NE, being deeply
intetcstcd In the forestry
question, and also well
awaie of the admirable
work that Miss Mil a Lloyd Dock has
heen doing for years in tills state In
co-operation with the stnte's eminent
forestry commissioner. Dr. J. T. Itoth
rock, is greatly pleased to take notp of
Governor Stone's appointment of Miss
Dock on the state foiestiy reservation
commission. She takes the place of
Mr. Albert Lewis, who leccntly re
signed. The other mcinbeis of the
respiration commission aie Dr. Itoth
rock, its official head; Isaac Brown,
secietaiy; John Fulton and A. C. Hop
kins. Miss Dock, it Is to be recalled, has
made profound and piactlcal study of
the subject of foicstry, both In the
t'nlted States and in Germany, which
count ty leads the world In the conser
vation, protection and wise economic
use of forests. As a lectin er on her
chosen subject she Is well known
Scranton people being among those
who have learned to appieciate her
enthusiasm, her knowledge and ability
to impart It.
Her appointment s one lo be wel
comed as fresh evidence of Governor
Stone's deep Inlet pM In the forestry
woik and as a tribute to both Miss
Dock's own woik and a recognition of
the heli) which the women of Penn
vanla have given to the foiestry move
ment. The appointment Is the more
welcome because theie is no shadow
of politics In It It has been won purely
by proed fitness for the place.
In connection with this, while speak
ing of the general advance of appreci
ation of the Immeasurable Importance
of forest conservation, icstoring, and
use, we am glad to give especial notlep
to thp amendment of thp act of June
1, 1S87, which act made piovlslon
for annual payments to ownprs of land
that had been cleared nf merchantable
timber who should reforest It "within
one year after the said land had been
so cleaied" and maintain it, under cer
tain sppciiled conditions. The amend
ment extends the provision for such
payments fiom "one year ' after to "at
any period" after. The text of the
"The owner or owneis of forest or
timber land in this commonwealth,
which has been cleaied of merchant
able timber, who shall at any period
after the Hald land has been so cleared,
plant, and who shall maintain upon the
said land young foiest or timber tiees
In sound condition, In number at least
twelve bundled to the acic, shall on
making due proof thetcof, bo entitled
to receive annually fiom the commis
sioners ;of their respective counties
the sums of money mentioned in the.
first section of this act: Provided,
That the tlrst period of ten years shall
be counted from the time that said
land has been cleaied of merchantable)
timber, and that after the said Hist
period of ten yeais the number of
trees upon the said land may be 10
duced' as In the tlrst section Is pro
vided." . There stand also to thp ctedlt of tho
last leglslatuie's forestry woik the
act, approved on April 11, "to encour
age the preservation of forests by pro
viding for a lebato of certain tuxes
levied thereon"; and the one, nppioved
May 'J, for the better protection of for
ests against fire by which tho commis
sioner of forestry, on complaint mado
of the failure or neglect of county com
missioners to fulfill their duty In tho
matter, Is authorized to take all neces
sary legal steps, employing detectives
and attorneys, for tho conviction of
those guilty, "wilfully or otherwise,"
of causing tho burning mf timber
lands. In such case the state will not
pay to the county tho money that Is
due for tho payment of ofllccrs who
have neglected their duty.
The long silence of "Coin" Harvey
may be an Indication that he Is en
gaged In figuring out a new calamity.

Th Travails of Reform
-JJ"V OH YEARS past a certain
I element In the Democracy
JL of Pennsylvania, which has
been In suspicious affiliation
with thp ltcpttbllcati Insutgeuts, has
been sounding the accusation that the
men In control of the Democratic) or
ganization In Philadelphia weie In
conspiracy with the men who run the
llopuhllcan machine. The rpr.ult has
been that the Democtatlc strength In
Philadelphia was divided and an a
minority party It offctcd no check
upon the ambitions of thp leaden of
the majority. During this period of
family qunirellng, the one man whom
all Democrats profpsspd to honor ns
tho embodiment of all that Is honor
able, progressive and virtuous was
Hubert Emory Pattlson.
Heccntly tho chairman of the Demo
cratic city committee of Philadelphia,
at whom most of this criticism was
directed, stepped down and in the In
terest of harmony proposed that Mr.
Pattlson be elected chairman In his
stead. The suggpstlon was piomptly
acted upon, but Instead of stilling the
family dissensions, It seems to have
had Just the opposite effect. Not only
aro the Insurgent Democrats taking
dally falls out of this former Idol of
reform, but "They have recently been
lelnforccd by the whole outfit of the
Insurgent Ilppubllcaiis. In vain has
Mr. Pattlson pleaded for peace. The

Why Is this thus? Are the profes

who wish to reconstruct both political
parties to their way of thinking. Jeal
ous nf thp great leform govprnor of
ISSa-O and 1R00-1? Is their devotion
to thp cause of so-called bettpr go
ernment simply limited by the pros
pect of personal proprietorship? Do
they fear that they could not manipu
late a man like Pattlson to their
schemes of personal or factional re
