There 1st no excuse which will justify

To forpet In politics Is to lose.
Next Tuesday's Election.
kllK I.MPOUTAXCE to the citi
zens of Scrnnlon of tho elec
tion to he held on Tuesday
next cannot bo overestiniat
d. It Involves this handling' or super
vision of the lmndlhiH; of nearly if not
quite linlf.u million dollars of the peo
ple's money; mid the enactment of
laws which touch their dully interests
nt ten points whore the laws passed
at Washington or at Hnrrlsburgr touch
them ut one point. Not only do tho
councilmen anil controller to he chosen
on Tuesday ot next week have much to
do witli directing in what channels the
100-odd thousands of dollars it tnl'os to
carry on tho government of our city
shall be spent, but there are also school
controllers to ho chosen in a number
of wards, and these in their turn have
practically the unchecked handling of
nearly as much more of the funds paid
into the public pocketbook by the tux
Iiaying oltizens of Scranton.
It would not bo true to say that this
important election is approaching with
out an appearance of interest among
the men and women it most affects.
There Is some interest: in some of the
wards there is keen interest. But there
is' not nearly ns much Interest as Hie
magnitude of the consequences in
volved would seem to warrant. In
wards where a number of candidates
are running for the same oltlco tho
signs of public Interest are conspicuous,
but it looks much more to the personal
than to the municipal aspects. AVlth
regard to tho one general ofllce to be
illled that of city controller little Is
beard and apparently little is thought.
Yet the filling of this office with a. man
capable of fulfilling' its duties in the
letter and spirit of the new charter is
ten-fold more important In its direct
bearing on the welfare of Scranton
than the identity of the next United
States senator or, almost, we might
say, than that of the next president
of the nation.
Some attempt has been made to
mouse prejudice against Candidate
for Controller Evan tt. Morris on
the score of tho so-called "ripper"
bill. It has not amounted and
cannot amount to much. The rip
per bill cannot bo repealed or amend
ed by an. election held in Scranton. Tho
ofllce of city controller would have had
to bo filled had there been no ripper
flvnn It. Morris is the man to
keep his eye on tho accounts of the
city government and to see that things
nre fuir nud square no matter' what
opinion may be held by this Republi
can or that on questions of politics at
HarrJsburg. lie is a clean, a capable
nnd an experienced city official now
peeking promotion after years of good
work In a. subordinate position; and It
is very essential to tho city's interests
that n man of that typo should have
control of tho auditing department.
It Is to bo hoped that the controversy
lietween the alleged friends of tho
United. States at tho beginning of tho
Spanish war will not be construed as
bearing upon tho Schley case.

A Stimulus to Pride.
-IW. VISIT of Prince Henry,
taken In connection with tho
publication ot a treaty of al
liance between England and
Japan on the exact llni-s of the policy
laid- down by the United States In Its
correspondence with tho other powers
on the subject of tho "open door," nnd
also In connection with the extraor
dinary pains which nearly all of the
powers are taking to establish that
they were not unfriendly during our
war wllli Spain, goes to chow conclu
sively that no mistake was made when
this country "expanded."
Xo doubt our great natural and cul
tivated advantages would In time have
won from tho other nations tho recog
nition they arc all 'now so eager to
bestow, had there been no war with
Spain nnd no sudden bursting forth of
tho reserve strength of this great peo
ple. Expansion was in progress quite
Independent of the war; tho war was
an incident of expansion, noL expansion
an Incident of tho war. lint the war
gave us an introduction to the masses
ot the people ot Europe sufficiently
telling to make it now feasible for tho
foreign chancellories to piny openly and
assiduously for American favor when
such recognition of democratic institu
tions a few years ago would have been
inexpedient if not disastrous.
It Is certainly a long step In the
education or evolution of European
diplomacy from the blunt cynicism and
brutal stolidity of it JJIsnmrck to the
shrewd sensing of values shown by tho
present ruler of Germany in his treat
ment of the proposition of a Joint Eu
ropean intervention to prevent our in
terfering with Spain in Cuba. While
it would be easy to make of tho
kaiser's part In that matter more than
it deserved from tho American stand
point, nevertheless the publication of
the fact that tho kaiser with his own
hand endorsed on the proposition his
terse and sufficient dissent will lay a
foundation for a. better feeling in tills
country for him and for his govern
ment than has prevailed heretofore,
and possibly count for much In the
mutations of the future.
In any event, tho American citizen
today lias a feeling of pride in his
citizenship which exceeds any exper
ienced before the guns of Dewey and
Sampson invited Europe's present un
exampled homage; and though lie has
outgrown the vanity of this nation's
primitive days and no longer thinks it
necessary to exalL his Americanism by
depreciating tho other great nations oL
the earth, the enlarged view of obliga
tions and opportunities, resulting from
what the caviling minority calls "Im
perialism" and tho run of mankind ex
pansion, Is certainly very new, very
pleasant and very promising.
The statement of tho engineer, who
fell asleep at his post and caused a
fatal wreck near Pittsburg, that he had
been on duty for thirteen hours, ought
to furnish food for relleetion. Xo en
gineer should bo allowed to remain at
his post continuously Tor that length of
time even upon a yard pusher.
The flilk Problem.
0 REGULATE the move
ments of those who endan
ger public health by the sale
of unwholesome milk, in the
large cities is a task that taxes tho In
genuity of health authorities both In
tills country and Europe. While it Is
altogether likely that the class of un
scrupulous dealers who disregard hy
giene in the preparation and sale of
milk Is not ns large as has been as
serted, it Is true that scarcely a city of
medium population In the land does not
furnish examples of tho dishonest mill;
dealer. The movements or tho milk

product at the town pump are not as
dangerous to tho consumer as tho care
lessness of the Individual who keeps
his cows In dens of filth upon Improper
food; bottles up warm milk, and doc
tors the fluid with chemicals lo keep
In Europe and America milk Is prac
tically a universal article of food and
Its consumption Is perhaps greatest
among tho weaker members of society
the very young, tho very old and tho
sick and feeble of all ages. As the
Washington Star aptly says: "Ono
might not go wide of tho truth In mak
ing the assertion that there is no other
common article of food which Is chosen
by consumers with such reckless dis
regard of hygleno as milk. It would
appear that with a largo percentage of
consumers anything that Is sold as
milk Is milk. The only points upon
which he Insists nro that the article
sold as milk shall be lluld, white and
not sour. It may unswer nil these
requirements and yet bo poison. And
It may be poison without criminal de
sign on tho part of tho dairyman, Ho
may bo Ignorant or cureless, Milk Is a
most sensitive lluld to careless or un
cleanly handling. It may bo from an
unlit cow; It may have been exposed
to tho odors of a dirty utabloi Its
teniperaturo may not havo been main
tained at tho proper degree, and It
may have been poured into unclean
cans or bottles, Then there Is tho
question of deliberate adulteration and
the Introduction of chemicals to Im
prove tho appearauco of tho stuff and

Xo greater evil to mankind has been
promoted than that by the discoverer
of tho formulas for preserving food
products by chemicals. view of
tho muss of preserved meats, vege
tables, etc, thut has Hooded tho mar
kets during the past few years It Is u
wonder that dyspepsia, the disease that
drives men to drink and suicide, Is
not more prevalent. Milk at least
should be protected against the
rural scientist who lias learned that
stuff can be jirocured ut the drug store
that will render his wures lmperlsh
able. Xatlonnl nnd municipal law
makers cannot too soon enact measures
to regulate- this evil,

Poor Saint Valentine.
of those nuctcut and honor-
nlilo gentlemen In whoso iiumo
many follies and absurdities are com
mitted, lie was a bishop. of rare vir
tues, one who stood for sulntllness
rather than Tor sentiment, and It Is a
little hard on him thut lie should bo
held responsible for so much modern
sentimentality and spltcfuiness. For
any one who has a grudge against an
ovor-sicnloiiH golf player, or who wishes
lo show scorn for some self-elected
spinster, may express his feelings In

Tho edict lias gone forth against tho
comic valentine, but tho sentinicnlal
ono Is hero to stay. Yet the modern
valentine frequently has substuuee as
well as sentiment; It may take the
form of a volume of love poetry, and If
It bears tho somewhat hackneyed as
surance that violets are blue and sugar
Is sweel, It may emphasize these state
ments by accompanying bunches of tho
real llower and boxes ot genuine con
fectionery. It Is perhaps just ns well that there
be set aside a day when sentiment may
have a legitimate outlci, and if this
sentiment should be expressed In real
poetry instead of tlte execrable twud
dle which is usually to bo found be
neath the gilded paper, good literature
might be disseminated and a belated
justice done to tho poor beheaded
bishop, whose martyrdom ought not to
extend beyond his death.
There Is no reason why the House
should not pass ut once the Senate

body wants the date changed and there
is no call for delay or tho wasting of
