When Sumtlor Hoar lias succeeded In
legalizing dabor riots lie should move

be no discrimination.
The Case of Ben Daniels.
RESIDENT ROOSEVELT has
not suffered any In the pub
lic's estimation by his an-
pointnicnt of. Ben Daniels as
United States marshal for Arizona.
The outcry against it Is largely Phari
saical. H Is charged that Ben once
shot u man. This is true. It was i a
fair shot In self-deleiise. and the abil
ity to shoot does not disqualify a man
from being a Federal marshal In Ari
zona. It is charged that Hen once ran
a gambling joint and yet shuttles the
pasteboards upon occasions. That,
too, seems to be proved upon the face
of the returns. It is naughty of Hen
but characteristic of the locality. Let
the senator who has never sat in a lit
tle same himself cast the first stone.
The worst charge against Ben is that
he lied to the president. This Is what
is being investigated. If it proves
true, then Ben will have to go, in
spite of the fact that in the late war
lie was one of lhc bravest and best
members of Roosevelt's regiment and
owes his appointment to that fact.
Shooting and gaming aie peccadillos
in the western country, especially
among the type of men who amount
to much in the hurly burly. But the
man who would deliberately Ho to ills
superior officer, when that officer, as
president ot the United States, was
trying in the face of conventionality
and small scruples to nut a gallant
comrade on his feet is not fit for any
ofllce and should be thrown down with
n dull thud.
This is not the first time that con
gress has balked on a question of "plain
duty." Rut duty always wins on the
final show down.
The Fire Insurance Problem.
THERE IS no excuse for the
eoulvocatlou which lias char
acterized the course of the
board of tiro underwriters
for this district in refeici.ee to the
overcharge on premiums. If any mem
ber of that board should, in his indi
vidual capacity. Indulge in the false
representation which the board as a
whole has practiced upon the city and
citizens of Scrantnn ho would be lucky
to -l:eop out of jail.
Yet a 'faiily announced increase in
fire premiums, based on the facts and
figures of the situation, could be
strongly defended. It is a notorious
fact that fire Insurance has ceased to
bo a profitable business In the United
States. For some reason or reasons,
and nobody seems to bp able to explain
just why, the losses by fire are increas
ing In faster proportion than popula
tion and than valuation. In tho past
quarter of a century tho aggregate lire
losses have been nearly equal to the
national war debt at Its highest point.
They amount to moro than JL'.SOO.OOO,
000. The yearly average disbursement
of the fire underwriting companies Is
more than a third of tho expense of
the Federal government pi lor to the
As the former Insurance commis
sioner of Pennsylvania, Colonel James
II. Lambert, points out In an article In
tho Philadelphia Press, fho insurance
In this state is especially unprolltuulc.
For the years 1S9S, 1S90 and 190U tho
gross premiums received In Pennsyl
vania by the lire insurance companies
doing business hi the stuto wero $31,
371,72a. Of this amount about $13,181,.
-.'SlT -would bo required for expenses of
administration, including taxes ami all
similar payments demanded by state
laws. There would thus bo left $21,190,
16S fori the payment of losses, But, as
Colonel Lambert shows, during the
three years In question tho losses paid
in Ponnnsylvanla by these companies
amounted to $23,026,2S2, showing a net
loss to them of $2,333,815. During the
same period the premiums collected In
Philadelphia were $11,120,925 and tho
losses paid wero $12.41S,07C. In thirty
yeWs more than ninety lire insurance
companies organized in this stuto have
retired from business, somethlne'haid
ly to bo accounted for by any theory
PMsupposlng . that Are Insurance in
Pennsylvania is a profitable under
taking, These figures abundantly explain
why, among insurance men, there Is
an ardent deslra to have routes in
creased. This desire is natural und the
public, when thoroughly informed us
torthe facts, will not seriously object.
It wants fire insurance. It has to have
it. It therefore will pay a fair price
for t. But tho manly way' Is to come
right out and say that rates inust.be

President Cassutt ot the Pennsyl
vania Halhoad company spoils 0110
fruitful topic of newspaper sl.eculatlon
by denying that tlutt company's 11c
quslllon'of the Long Island road had In
view tlin establishing of a steamship
Hue to run from MonUuik Point
to Mllford Haven. Air. Cassatt
first denies that such a proposition
was ever considered and then shows
that the alleged, saving ot lime by
such u toute would bo only two
hours us compared with sailing from
the Battery, certainly not enough
to warrant the establishing of 11 new
steamship line. It Is possible that a
time may conic when two hours will
count In such ti Journey, but that will
hardly be befoie the age of Hying
FOR A NUAIBER of years
Massachusetts bus had a
compulsory vaccination law.
Recently the nnll-vaeolnu-llonlsts,
diligent in vocal effort It not
formidable In numbers, secured tho in
troduction ot a repeal bill and public
hearings havo been In progress for
some days, the Boston papers giving
columns ot tho testimony.
From these reports It Is evident that
tho "antls" are up against 11. The bur
den of expert testimony is all one way.
For example, Professor Counsclman ot
Harvard, who has studied a number
of smallpox epidemics, said he had
never known one death from that dls
ease In a case of properly prepared vac
cination. Representatives of each of
the schools of medicine told ot their
successful experience with and faith In
vaccination. Dr. Assel Ames of Porto
Rico told how before the American
occupation of that Island the annual
death rate from smallpox had been 651
and how since vaccination had been ap
plied to every inhabitant the disease
had disappeared absolutely, not a case
being now known. And finally President
Eliot of Harvard went on record as
follows: "I object with great earnest
ness to the proposed repeal of the com
pulsory vaccination law of jrassachu
setts. It would bo hard to imagine
a. more barbarous and merciless pro
posal." He went on to say that it
had been abundantly proved that no
body need have smallpox who would
take the trouble to be vaccinated.
Testimony of this character is irres
istible. It leaves no excuse for the ex
istence in any threatened community
of an unwillingness to undergo vac
cination in the interest of the public
health. The citizen who will not show
this much consideration for others, If
not for himself, should be taken by
main force and vaccinated or else put
The testimony of the expert medical
witness appears to havo been outdone
by the evidence of those who gather
tho blackberry crop In September.
An Unnecessary Scare.
ANEW mare's nest lias been dis
covered at Washington. Ar
, tide V of the constitution
says that congress must call
a constitutional convention when asked
by two-thirds of the states, the amend
ments adopted to require the ratifica
tion ot three-fourths of the states. Con
gress can impose no limit on this con
vention. It can lip into shreds tho en
tire fabric of our fundamental law if so
minded and there is nothing but the
common sense of the people to prevent.
Six states Oregon, Michigan, Mon
tana, Idaho, Nevada and Colorado
have this session filed formal resolutios
asking for a constitutional convention
to provide for the election of United
States senatois by direct vote of the
people. These resolutions are identical
in their wording, thus showing a com
mon origin, and other resolutions simi
lar In purport are pending in a num
ber of state leglslaturei. From time to
time within the past two decades thirty
states have passed various declara
tions on the subject of the popular elec
tion of senators: and it is now feared
by some of the more conservative pub
lic men at the national capital that the
present concerted movement for a con
stitutional convention ostensibly for
the purpose of effecting a change In
the method of electing senators really
masks a covert scheme to work radical
changes In the national charter.
This scare is genuine and deep seal
ed, but It seems to us that it under
estimates the basic good judgment ot
the American people. They aie not dis
satisfied with their constitution or form
of government. It lias stood the test
of time and was never held higher in
the world's esteem than now To Im
agine that any slick scheme of dema
gogues could effect an overturning ot
any of the fundamental principles of

GENERAL .WOODFORD'S REPLY.
following Is the reply of General Stewart P.
Woodford, formerly our minister to Spain, to
the criticism In tho letter., of fotnier Senator
Chandler printed In jesteidaj'a Trlbuno!
"I have no Idea that the public will be Inter
elcd In this mailer of ancient lilstoiy. If so, the
simple- answer Ui It Is true. I never demanded
Independence. It was absolutely Impossible to
do so. It would have resulted in my being or
deicd away within twenty-four bouts, nnd luive
precipitated tho war Fooner than it came. I
never had any Instruction to demand independ
ence. The only thing looking lo It was a tug
gestion of the president for my own guidance. I
answcied that tho independence of Cuba was
under the Spanish constitution impossible without
prior suictlon of the cortes, which was not then
in session nnd would not meet for a month,
lheieaftcr my instiuctlons looked to an armis
tice. "As to the purchase, the thing nevrr was in
the remotest way suggested to me by the admin
istration. On my own lioole 1 sounded one or two
persons at Madrid, and found that as impractic
able as tho suggestion of independence. And bo
I never suggested it to the Spanish government.
Meantime I did suggest, having clearly in my
mind the question of Independence or of cession
by sale, an armistice during the rainy season, be
lieving that if I could induce Spain to that step,
then Influences nt woik duilng the following six
months would make the next step possible, to
wit: Hither independence or cession to the
United Stales by sale.
It is much easier thiee years afterward, and
coolllooking over the records in a comfortable
study, to say what might have been done or what
ought to havo been done. It is mighty easy to
forget the strain under which the minister of the
United Slates was devoting himself he.ttt and
soul to what was, as ever body knows, tho very
first wish of tho president, and that vras the
avoidancQ of war and the picservation of peace."
