Common Council Wrangle.
.Oil THE good name of tho city
and the dignity of councilR, It
is to be honed that the dis
graceful scenes enacted last
. night In the common council chamber
will not be repeated.
The attempt of I. F. Calpin to act as
chairman of his organization while the
'regular body was In session, presided
over, by 13. E. Robnthan, caused dire
confusion and made an early adjourn
ment a necessity.
There ought to be enough of common'
sense" and pride In the city's reputation
and welfare in common council to end
this family ciuarrel before the next
' meeting of the lower house. Scranton
can well afford to miss a repetition of
the scenes that marked last night's ses
sion. , Peace negotiations are progressing in
South Africa, but the anxiety over the

Troubles of the Turk.
IN A RECENT issue the Commer
cial Advertiser reviews the situ
ation in Macedonia in a. way that
offers a. sort of defense to the
much maligned Turlc, at whose, door
has been laid the blame for a greater
portion of tho disturbances that are
constantly keeping the population in
that portion of Kurone In a state of
anxiety. The Advertiser calls attention
to the fact that n good many Interest
ing features are yet to be brought out,
and gives as authority the statements
of a special correspondent of the Lon
don Dally Telegraph, who has been so
lournlng for some time in the province
f Salonika in Macedonia. He was sent
there, in fact, to watch the development
of tho Stone kidnapping case, and the
results of his observations as found hi
an article recently printed in the Tele
graph are interesting, if only because
they give n rather new point of view as
to conditions In that unhappy province,
and lead one to believe that uerhuDs
the Turkish rulers are nut quite so
black as they have been painted.
Whatever might have been when
Philip and Alexander were kings, to
day there are no Macedonians, as such.
The. natlvo puie stock has long since
disappeared, and In its place are Bul
garians. Greeks, Servians; Wallachs and
.Tews. Some districts are entirely popu
lated by people of one race, others have
jilxed populations, and wherever the
.utxture occurs there Is continual
trouble. Kxccpt the Turks and the
Tews', all these peoples are Christians,
lut Christians of different creeds, and
,hey are continually quiit'iellng and
lghting among themselves. In fact,
Ihere are more religions than there are
separate peoples. First, there is the
original Creek church, to which belong
nearly all the Greeks. Then there Is the
schismatic Rulgarlan church, to which
belongs the mass o the Mulgarlun na
tionality. Then thete are the Bulgari
ans who retain their alleslancn to .the
old Greek church and recognize the
patriarch at Constantinople. After them
rnino tho Unitarians who follow jhe
American missionaries und call them
selves Protestants, ngaliiBt whom all
men's hands arc turned; the Wallachs,
a offshoot of the Giveek chinch, a sort
of lost tribe, qf po political .importance;
ll$(Jjay Catholic Greeks, who are also
fftw lanumuer and of small Importance,
Tho 'Turks have a general ulau of

Tho Telegraph correspondent asserts
that the very worst offender in this re
spect Is the convert of the American
missionaries who, as soon as he has
been converted, throws off his native
clothes, i adopts western costume aild
thinks himself superior to nll'hls, neigh
bors. When something happens, he
complains to the missionary and makes
himself out u victim of terrible cruelty.
The missionaries believe all that he
says,- curry 'the matter to Constant!-,
nople, and so It goes on; The writer
says that lie has personally Investigate
several cases, and while sometimes the
original grievances, at o real, the people
nrc such 'confirmed liars that H Is Im-,
poss!ble,to believe, uny or them, and as
a rule when the mutter Is sifted to the
bottom, there Is absolutely nothing in it.
' The truth, seems to be that the Turks,
.with thejr turbulent, fractious popula
tion and tlielr active enemies across the
frontier, are doing the best thev can
and are more successful than western
nations are wont to give them credit
for. It is only a matter of time before
that festering sore in southeastern
Kurope must be cleaned and cured by
the western nations, but in the mean
time all the blame for the stale of
things should not be given to Turkey.
When some enlightened nation goes In
there to bring quiet and peace to the
country, it may be found that Turkey
has been doing remarkably well under
present conditions. '
it Is possible that spring may Sitlll

but it will he just as well to clean up

That flanchurlan Treaty.
WHILE it is something to
know that Russia has
signed a treaty for the
evacuation of Manchuria
that Is alleged to be satisfactory to the
other powers, it will be dlfllcult to per
suade the world that It is really the
intention of the Muscovite to abandon
the territory that he has been so long
engaged in absorbing. As tho New
York Times says: "As it has been finally
signed, the Manchurlan treaty appears
to have had two "strings" alilxcd to
It by Russia. The evacuation of Nlu
Chwang by Russia is made conditional
upon the evacuation of Tien-Tsin. now
held as a hostage for the performance
of certain Chinese obligations by the
".lilies," which practically means by
the Germans. The other is that Russia
will give over the control of the rail
road from Xlu-Chwang to Shuu-hnl-Kwan
when "the British" relinquish
tho control of the railroad in Pe-chi-Ll.
These two conditions appear to stand
upon the same basis, and to be merely
fair, internationally. In fact, however,
they are upon very different footings.
One of them ought to prevail, but not
"Then is certainly, no more reason
why the Germans should occupy Tlen-
Tsla than why the Russians should oc
cupy Manchuria. In fact, there Is no
more reason why the Germans should
occupy Klao-Chow. The occupation of
Tien-Tsin, like the occupation of Niu
Chwang. is a means of putting, or keep
ing, a pressure upon China. There is
no excuse for It in one case any more
than In the other, after the province is
pacified. Pe-chi-Li has been pacified
for months, with the exception of the
disgraceful "punitive raids." All the
commeicial powers have the same In
terest in seeming the evacuation of
Tien-Tsin that they have In securing
the evacuation of Manchuria. And
China has the same inteiest. It was
very likely nt the tequest of China that
this stipulation was made by Russia..
The same t.ort of pressure which has
been put upon Russia In Nlu-Chwang
by the commercial nations, and which
has proved successful, ought now to
bo . transferred to Germany in Tlen
Tsln. "But the cases of the two railroads
are not alike. Kugllshmen or Ameri
cans secure a railroad concession for
the put pose of earning money by car
rying freight and passengers. In do
ing so, they aie also supplying one of
the greatest national needs of China.
Tt does not matter, If a railroad is run
upon exclusively commercial principles,
of what country its owneis and man
age is are "nationals." But a Russian
tallroad Is not a private commercial
venture, but a. government work, it Is
planned and It Is managed upon con-s-lderatlons
primarily political and ex
clusive. That Is a " good reason why
Russian control of u railroad Is objec
tionable In Manchuria, There Is no rea
son at all why the control of a railroad
in Po-ehl-1-.l by Brltlsh'subjects should
bo objectionable. This stipulation on
tio part of Russia Is theruforo Inad
missible, because tho two cases are not
parallel, as Uussla assumes them to be.
It Is not easy to believe that the Rus
sian stipulation on this point was made
In good faith." '

Dancer of Powerful Drugs,'
ACCORDING to the Philadelphia
Record, It may be possible that
ta u now danger Is liable to men
ace us In the Increase of peo
ple who go about loaded with pdwerful
drugs that are being Introduced by
modern medical scleuco. 'Tho Record
"Before a Pettolt coroner's Jury a
physician slated, Incidentally, that he
had administered to his patient a mod
erate doso of. ultra-glycerlney but that
this remety; liad nothing, to do with his
death. Tho; doctor, In reply to the
question of un amareiVJiuorrsalii that
Dltro-"gljTerIne Is now In general use,
'and Is tegarded us elllcaclous ju a
number of maladies. Ho further ob
served thut the materia medico, now In-'1
eludes pot only this terrltiu explosive,
but also phoihorus und, of course,
mercury, and that seijoua accidents
or casualties have been charged to their
account recently, although the abuse of
mercury at one- tllno had the most
baneful effects, So far from being con
sidered n heroic, lemctly, the use of
nltro-fflyrorlno, us a medicine Was llrst
suggested by the' lioi'iicopathls'ts, who
have been rated as enemies of power
ful drugs. ,
"Probably it certain degiee of care
must bo exercised by those who pre
scribe and by those who take dynamic
drugs Into, their Interiors. Because
medical annals do not record disastrous
consequences is not positive evidence
'that they have never occurred. There,
.have been occasional cases of spontau
'eous combustion, and although men of
science sneer at those, who believe in
them, Dickens maintained to his dying
day 'that the scientists were wrong.
There have been sudden and mysteri
ous disappearances which could be ac
counted for In no other way. It is con
ceivable that n patient whose midst Is
oeuupled by repeated doses of phospho
rus, for example, may have rubbed his
Irritated back against a door-Jamb (In
the absence of a Scotch scratching
post) and phlst! what happens to a
match when It Is struck may have
happened to him. The danger to n per
son who Is tilled with mercurial prep
arations Is obvious. Should he venture
Into the street with the mercury at
101 degiees, as it was heie ono day of
last summer, ho must Inevitably ascend
as the column of mercury In the tube
of the thermometer does.
"Evidently the nllro-glyceiinc pa
tient Is In most' peril. Many of the ex
plosions which have been charged to
the lighting of llres with kerosene
might be traced to the sudden fall of
such a patient, who needs only a Jar
to set free the dynamic force which Is
stored up in ' his Interior. Powerful
drugs may be necessary In this day of
extreme nervous Irrltublllty, but the
opinions of doctors as to their harm
lessness should be taken with caution.
No father should undertake to paddle
a boy who has just experienced a course
of phosphorus or nltro-glycerlue."
An exchange in a spirit of toleiunce
says: "Mr. Kipling's vcises about Cecil
Rhodes are not' the worst of their kind
that have ever been written, but jt is
to be feared that the almost universal
comment will be that the poet has not
risen to the level of his large subject."
In view of the class of material that Is
usually furnished by Mr. Kipling, it Is
impossible to see how he could ever
again rise to a subject demanding de
cency, dignity or deep thought. Kip
ling's studies of human nature which
have seemed to delight those who ad
mire that which Is freakish in litera
ture, are undoubtedly marked for their
brutish originality, but it is not prob
able that his genius will in a day re
cover from the effects of evil communi
cations. The peach ctop prophet has already
appeared with a serious countenance.
But, as usual, anything lie may say re
garding tho condition of the fruit will
be regarded as a joke.
At tho Charleston festivities this
week the TiUmans appear to have oc
