Something to Remember.
T CHRTAINJ.Y was a happy In
spiration which suggested to the
visiting Knights Templar the
Idea of massing the bands and
the various commanclerles, at the con
clusion of. yesterday's parade, In one
solid phalanx of sound, color and mo
tion. Nothing like it has been seen at
Templar conclaves before, and it may
be long until a spectacle equally im
pressive and inspiring shall be wit
When we reflect that that compact
company represented not only the old
est fraternity of Its kind in existence
but also Included within its member
ship some of the foremost citizens of
our commonwealth, literal leaders of
Its commercial, professional and indus
trial life, : the significance of It in
creases. To bind such men during
many centuries together In such a com
munity of Interest and fellowship of
spirit is no small result. That it, has
profoundly influenced the course of hu
man affairs Is amply prov.ed in history;
and that it is largely Influencing it to
day is equally wall known to those
w'ho are In touch with Masonic activi
ties. Some sensing of this fact was pres
"ont In' the consciousness of every beholder-
of yesterday's pageantry and
will linger long. In memory. It was an
rloi'iiient tribute to the potency of or
ganization; and a demonstration that
there Is more in human nature than'
can be explained on the hypothesis of
total depravity. A physiognomist,
studying the faces In that parade.ruuld
not fail to conclude that there must
lie something In the order to appeal
with convincing force to a high aver
age of character and intelligence;
something much more substantial than
the mere vanity of dress parading and
the s'ofcial Instinct. The words "On
ward, 'Christian Soldiers!" tool; on new
moaning' and a respect for the order,
was implanted more deeply and dur
ably than before.
Yesterday's parade was undoubtedly
the finest spectacle of Its kind ever wit
nessed in Scranton.
Not Unnaturally Suspicious.
-W-ll: PACT that a committee of
I . senators representing forty
J five Republican votes, or a
working majority, have prac
tically agreed to support the Payne
Cuban reciprocity bill' amended in two
particulars restoration of the abolished
differentials and extension of the period
of operation from one year to five years
renders timely a protest just filed by
Frank D. Pavey of the New York bar,
Jn behalf of the Associated Kconomlc
Corporations of Cuba, an organization
somewhat like our American chambers
,. Mr. Pavey as attorney for these In
terests objects, naturally, to the scanti
ness of the proposed reduction In tariff
duties And' quotes abundant authority
to prove that Instead of a 'M per cent,
reduction there should be not less than
a SO per een,t, one. Hut the new- point
raised by him Is that even on a -fi per
cent, basis the proposed plan of reci
procity Is largely a slitiin. As tliu Paypo

8 In ten would be nolhlng. The Cuban
rates could 'not be greater.' Uy the
terms of (lie commercial agreement,
with the United States Cuba Would be
barred from placing any duty on such
articles, however necessary some duty
might be either for revenue or f6r the
protection of lier,,domestJn Industries,
The unrlletilar Industries affected by
this result would be ruined, All other
Industries would be Injured In greater
or less degree. The customs receipts
would fall off. The deficit In customs
receipts could be covered only by the
Imposition of direct or some other class
of taxes, which would render much
more difficult the solution of the pres
ent economic problem in Cuba."
To effect such a subterfuge Would re
quire the co-operation of the American
executive, something not likely to be
given at least during the present uil
mlnlstr.itloii; but In view of the 'dis
position manifested in the present con
gress on tills subject we do not wonder
that the business Interests of Cuba are
suspicious. AW cannot think that, this
chapter in American legislation will
look well in history. We doubt that It
will receive many signs of popular favor
when those responsible for It go for re
election before the people.
If the law authorizes the withholding
of city funds by the county treasurer
until mouths after their receipt by him,'
It needs to be changed.
A .Suggestion to John Mitchell
HE HAZ LUTON convention
did not directly deal with
the problem of ordering out
the engineers, firemen and
pump-runners. It delegated its dispo
sition to John Mitchell and the district
officials. These men decided that the
guardians of the safety of the mines
should abandon their positions on June
'1 unless their employers should on or
before that time grant certain de
mauds. It Is now known to everybody In the
anthracite fields that the employers
wilt not grant those demands. It is
also plain that they will not permit
their properties to be damaged or de
stroyed by the abandonment of the en
gines and pumps. If the men whom
they now hire to run this machinery
shall leave their places,' as ordered by
President .Mitchell and his cabinet, oili
er men will be substituted. The opera
tors have a perfect legal and moral
right to till with new men places which
old employes vacate. Their duty is to
do this in this instance for the protec
tion of their own, .the miners' and the
public's permanent interest in tlie
mines. They would be justly censur
able if they should neglect so impera
tive a duty.
Should the necessity for substituting
non-union men arise, John Mitchell and
the presidents and secretaries of the
several anthracite districts, whose or
der has .brought on this emergency,
would clearly owe It to the pence and
good order' of the community to Issue
.peremptory orders to all members of
the. miners' -.union to refrain from interfering-
with the -operators or their
new employes;, a fact' they no doubt
fully realize. As a precautionary move
anticipating tills possibility, we- su
gest that circulars to this effect, ''oveiv,
John Mitchell's potent signature, be
read in all the locals, posted' conspicu
ously in public places, advertised ''in the
press and 'communicated from the pul
pits next Sunday. We know thut
.Mitchell and his advisers want peace,
but how else, except by their taking the
utmost precaution to prevent unlawful'
Interference, can they clear themselves
of moral responsibility should rioting
result from the calling out of the mine
protectors, troops be made necessary
and lawless force have to be put down
by the law's strong arm'.'
We do not think that we are overstat
ing the gravity of the situation or mis
placing the responsibility. If the mini!
guardians go out on the orders of
.Messrs. Mitchell, Nichols, Fahy, Huffy
and the three secretaries, other men
will surely be put In their places and
interference will be at the peril of those
who offer It. We understand that It is
In the power of the national president
and district officials to threaten with
eNpulslon ami to expel any member of
the union whiNtakes part In an act of
lawlessness. The responsibility for
continued law and order among the
union's membership Is uierefore fixed.
History warns us that at such times
no precaution for pence should i,.
spared. It Is far better to avert trouble
than to Invite It.

flboiit the Strike
From the lOlinlra Advertler.
IN SCI'.STANCK, briefly, the real Issue
Is this, for convenience of statement
'pat la tlie form of a resolu
tion; "Resolved, That the mines and mining
property interests of the anthracite coal
regions shall pass from the cohtrid of
the 'present operators to that of the
United Mine Workers of America la the
same manner and to. the same extent as
.similar. mines and properties la the bitu
minous regions have done""
The aftlrmatlve of the question H taken
ly the miners, through Mr. Mitchell,
president "f the United Mine AVorkers.
The negative Is sustained by the mine
owners and operators. It Is the question
nn which the strike of 11)00 was under
taken. Jt wus not then decided. A work
ing arrangement was patched up. which
continued in force till the present month.
It Is asserted positively that all the con
ferences prior to the calling out of th
men two weeks uko were "mere sparring
for position." Operators and miners
knew that the main question could not he
adjusted by compromise, and neither
would surrender without a trial of
Such being the ssue. the dally gossip
of changes In thcMluntlon here and there
has no Mihitanllnl north. The operators
say that under no circumstances will
they yield. Tho leaders of the miners are
as positive in their declaration that it Is
a light to a finish. For them It, Is the life
or dissolution of their organization la the
anthracite region, as while they gaiiud
an advantage through the working ar
rangement of l!itl it Is true the mine
owners have not recognized officially the
United Mine Workers' federation. They
say they will not. They will settle tho
stilke. when a settlement is reached, by
dealing directly and solely with the men
whom they employ.
h'rom their point of view the termina
tion of the co.it strike Is far off. Thus
far the violence that usually attends
great labor strikes has been conspicuous
for Its absence. The pence of acquies
cence In IhliiHS as they are exists. But
the operators may conclude to resume
coal traffic presently with labor that Is
willing to work on their terms. What
will happen then will be seen. It is to
he hoped that violence and bloodshed will
not he experienced, but the hope has
nothing to rest cm hi p-ist expeiience ex
cept the itselessness of law-breaking. The
operator', having tlie legal right to em
ploy men who will wink,' will have the
right to call on the authorities to protect
the men If assailed. Victory, which will
be tin) vindication of the rlKht of em
ploye! s to conduct their own business, ul
timately will be theirs. That is the logi
cal conclusion. If It could he accept, d
without another appeal to extreme meas
ures the country would rejoice.
An Incredible Supposition.
From the New York Times.
As to ihn bituminous miners of Penn
sylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, they
are working under an agreement to run
until June i!i'i. It Is an agreement
reached at the Indianapolis Jolqt conven
tion, which lasted from .Ian. "') lo Feb, s,
.Mr. Mitchell stands pledged in tho moxt
unequivocal way coiuernlng tho sacred
ness of contracts, even when unsatisfac

Into iindefstnudlngly ami with open eyes,
If he shall permit any branch of the
union with which hn Is colu-.rciteil to re
pudlale a fomml contract by declaring a
strike, he would deliberately undo tho
creative work of years and doom tho
United Minn Workers to Inevitable dls

Its agreements, mine ownem have no-reason

The pretense of effective co-operation la
.Michigan and West Virginia Is llttlo more
than a "bluff"; as lo the other four
slates named, tlie risk Is wholly dlspro.

for recognition and the execution of for
