Tho c-nr-ninrks of partisan political
motive uro increasingly conspicuous
in the Times' attitude toward tho new
trolley enterprise. Was Thursday
night's vote the measure of lln in
fluence? For Exemplary Effect.
THE ACTIOX of tho 'Citizens'
Alliance In furnishing 1111 at
torney for the prosecution
of a ease involving the un
lawful and olfenslve use of the epi
thet "scab" should have exemplary
value. Jinny persons use this vile word
without realising that when shouted
at another In derision or insult it con
stitutes a broach of the peace. Xo one
has any more right to call offensive
names at a fellow-clllzen than lo lilt
that citizen with a billy or brick. The
fact that tlie word "scab" has come
into general vogue to designate the
working man who does not belong to
a union gives no license for its employ
ment as a means of attack. In law,
the "scab" has jus,, as much right to
"life, liberty and the pursuit of happi
ness" as the man, woman or child who
is a member of or a sympathizer with
a labor union. It will contribute to the
peace and good order of this commun
ity to liuve this fact understood and
These busy days in the court house
presage a time not far distant when
the necessity for larger couit accom
modations will have to be met.
The Most Effective Way.
OF THK various suggestions
evolved in the course of the
canal discussion, none, it
seems to us, is more sensible
than that congress .should authorize
the building of a canal, dpcide upon a
maximum sum of expenditure, and
then pass the whole matter along to
the presldont, saying: "You hire what
engineers you need, have them decide
which is the best route, negotiate for
hiiuh concessions as may be needed
and go ahead."
The canal question in its practical
a&peota is peculiarly an executive
problem. It Is one that congress can
not hope to supervise in detail. There
fore, tho sooner congress turns it over
lo the executive department, the uoon
or there will be satisfactory progress.
The president has at his command
not only the highly developed engineer
ing skill of tho army engineering corps
but also the entire professional skill
of the country. He, alone, can handle
satisfactorily the diplomatic problems
It Is objected that the executive is
continually encroaching upon tho pre
rogatives of the legislative branch,
and that, therefore, congress should
not encourage but should discourage
the centralization of power In the
president's hands Tills sounds very
well from an academic standpoint,
hut it does not remove the modem
tendency to get things dono along the
lines of the greatest economy, etilcipiiey
and least resistance; which explains
why the Ameilcan people look for le
jiultt) more and more to their presi
dent and less and less to their -100 odd
congressmen, who are continually
changing or disappearing and among
whom responsibility Is sometimes al

would protect the public against un

ifiatters now stand, the secretary of
state knows nothing about n corpora

charter from the state. He cannot
even tell how many of the 40,000 or
more corporations chartered by the
state during the last fifty years nte
now dead, nor how many are still liv
ing. Tho state creates tlJe thing,
authorizes It to do business, sends it
out In the cold, and knows nothing
about It forever. It is high time that
a change should be made.'1
It Is, Indeed.
To bo consistent, the Times should
now pitch Into the new gas ordinance.
Hut there Is no politics for It In that.
Self Help In Philanthropy.
TIIERI3 Is much timely com
mon sense In a statement
recently made by Andrew
Carnegie of tho reasons
which prompt him to give so much of
his money for libraries.
"I believe," said lie, "In philanthropy
based upon tills eternal truth that
that only is helpful which helps people
to help themselves. All other fdrms
of phllantlnopy are barren of results,
false, deceptive, degenerating. C.lvo
your money In such foi m that' people
using it, as a step, may rise to greater
things. Assisting other people to ex
ert themselves is the only genuine
philanthropy. Hospitals. nurseries,
asylums, all are eminently matters for
the attention of a municipality. To
give such institutions to cities would
bp an influence tending to make 'cities
forsake their proper functions and dis
regard thtir duties.
"To care for the health and physical
condition of its citizens is the' first
duty of organized government. That
is why we have the police to protect .us
against assault, lights at night, to in
sure safety, parks for recreation, a
street cleaning department to fiee U3
from the contagion of microbe-teeming
refuse and dirt, and public hos
pitals where the sick and injured who
Sire without money can be cared for
without cliarge. Next to public order
and health as the prime duty of a
municipality comes public education.
In that field lie the inexhaustible op
portunities for philanthropists. Schools
are established, but observation and
statistics prove that only the young
can attend school, and their period of
self-improvement is short. Here, I
thought, was my chance. And so I
concluded to give my money in the
form of libraries, and this I will con
tinue to do to the day of my death.
"Xo one can get any good out of a
public library without working. Thus
is my idea of philanthropy fulfilled, for
let me reiterate that none are w 01 thy
of help who won't work to secure it.
When my last day shall come I will be
glad if I shall lie able to know that

struggle or spurred into greater ac
tivities the currents of the wot Id's
Scrantonians do not need any argu
ments to convince them of the useful
ness of public libraries. Their experi
ence with tho Albright institution has
taught every watchful observer that of
all the forms of public education, the
reading encouraged by a free public
library reaches and touches a larger
number than any other agency except
the public school. In a way, the pub
lic library is more useful than the
public school: for while it acts as n
powerful supplement to the work of
the school, it carries its influence
among many persons who have never
had opportunity to secure public in
struction. Andrew Carnegie has un
questionably found a signally useful
way in which to distribute his notable
contributions to the betterment of

was properly nrganlml No.es appointed JliKcn
rlc rcccher nt most ol the richest claims nt
Nome, Ills only ground tor this was the appli
cation of some ot .those Jumpers who claimed
the ground staked out by the Swedes and who
had sold out tn McKcnrlc's company. Sonic of
these claims were producing $13,0) wot Hi of
gold In twenty-four hours.
"The Wild (loose nnd I'lonetr Mining compa
nies had bought the Swedes' elihns and nt once
applied for 11 dissolution of (he recclieislilp.
Their petition was disregarded. They did, how
ever, compel Mt Keltic to glvo n bond, but Judge
Noycs only demanded of lilm one of f.1,000. Then
be refused to allow' an appeal In. the face of the
statute uulliorlzlrifT It and commanded McKcn
zlc not only lo take possession of the rlainu mid
operate them, but also to lake possession of all
peisonal property found on them.
"Messengers were secretly dispatched lv the
companies to San runclsco, whero the United
States clictilt court was sitting and on the offi
cii! its submitted this court granted 1 stay, stop
ping all proceedings at Nome until the appeal
had been heard before it. These writs command
ed MeKenzie and Noyes to restore tlm property
they had taken. Meanwhile the state of thing!
at Nome cm h.ndly be described. Milling was
eloro and people Ihcil In (error of MeKenzie,
who win called the 'King of Itceelvcrs.' The
writs arrhed on September VI, 1000, In n terrible
storm. MeKenzie and Xo.ces put their heads
together and then No)cs decided that the elnult
court was without lurlsdictlon In the matter
nnd refused to obey the writs. It was Humored
that McKcnte was going to wlthdiiw the gold
ho had collected from the bank vault, and men
slntioned thcmsidcs about the bark with guns.
McKcmlo did appear, but at the sight of the
guns he lost Ills none and let the gold be,
"MeKenzie thought eWdently that by disobey
ing the order communication with the outside
world would soon be shut olf and then thliiRs
could be run to suit himself, Howcirr, Mr.
Knight, a San l'ranclseo liwjcr, prepared pi
pers for contempt nnd secretly dispatched these
to Sin I'rancisto. The couit upon leeching them
sent marshals to arrest MeKenzie and bring him
In San Francisco for trial. MeKenzie and his
gang trice) to keep Knight from going down to
San 1'r.nidsco for the trial, and Noyes issued n
warrant for bis finest. This Knight dodged by
escaping in u steam launch one night, and a
scssel which picked him up took him to San
Tiancisco in time to testify against MeKenzie.
"1'ollowing this strong efforts were made to
sa!e Nojes. Urost was sent up as a special
agent of the department of justice and reported
in his fa! or, but later last spring the circuit
court oiderce Noycs Woods and Urost to show
caue why they should not be punished for ton
tempt. Nojes went to Washington and was do-,
fended in the si'iiile. While MeKenzie was In
control through Nojes' wiits thousands of dol
lars worth of gold was collected by him."

Most people haie a gieat honor ot gelling a
"stroke" or fit of upoplevj'. It Is not b) any
means as unpleasant as tlie toothache, but tho
suddeness of it is whit appalls. There Is icnlly
no suddennrsx about It, howeier. No disease
ghes sueli early warning. A "stroke" Is n xery
simple occurrence, and not nt all hoinble, It
re-sults from two oi three causes, but the uiojl
common one Is this; A little arteiy in the bialu

of In.iln piesseel upon. Now this artery weau
out only In common with other arteries of tlr
bodj. In some people they all become what is
called athedomatous, or hard and brittle1, At
the bamo time they become tortuous, or twisted.
We can seo these hard and tortuous aitcrles on

Likewise warning Is often gficn liv the Hnv ar

traces of blood, which can easily be fceii. Hut

When these signs occur, and they occur months
