Roosevelt will pass that by If reconsid

them to consent to the substitution of
the president of the railed States for the
judges of the court of common pleas.
AVnshlngtnn Dispatch In the New York
THAT THIS represents the
president's position may be
doubted. It is not an insult
to the president or tlie United
States to suggest that the adjudication
of differences in Pennsylvania should
be committed to the regular courts of
Pennsylvania. Citizens residing in this
commonwealth freely accept. In civil
actions, and are compelled to accept. In
criminal actions, the adjudication of
the Pennsylvania courts, save where the
action involves federal statutes, when
recourse is had to the federal courts.
The common pious courts of Pennsyl
vania dally adjudicate Issues fully as
important as those imolved in colliery
disputes; and, upon occasions, Ihey
pass on Issues more Important, since
upon them ilcp?nd human life. Our
courts may not lie perfect, but they have
tho respect of the great majority of our
citizens; they are constitutional and
regular, and they have the advantage,
which an outside tribunal would not
pos?e.--s. or long familial lly with mining
conditions, romp of the judges having
themselves at one lime or another been
miners, and all having been closely In
touch with them.
A thorough investigation of the an
thracite industry by a commission of
cxpiM'ls, for the purpose of finding out
abuses and recommending remedies,

sincerely that there are not abuses or
iliat many changes for the better, both
in methods and in spirit of adinlnls
tratiiln, could not be Instituted with
advantage both to tlie operators and
to the miners. Commissioner AVrlglifs
report, so far as It went, made this
i leaf to all who have studied It atten
tively. The question Is .sulllciently
liroail and Intricate to warrant such an
Inquiry, more especially in view of the

Unit enable, them to give, to mining
only a divided attention.
1 It Is the president's plan to suggest
such an inquiry and to couple with tlie
suggestion an appeal to the miners to
return to work pending Its results, in
the meanwhile availing themselves of
the! offer of the operators to accept
arbitration by the local courts or col
liery grievances not adjustable at the
mine, tho miners would do well to give
it favorable consideration. Jt would
not; ho a surrender to the operators but
a concession to the acute publlu need

FOR SEVERAL years the bureau
of forestry has been collect
ing data concerning. the pre
valence and dustructlvencss
of forest llrcs throughout the United
States and the fruits of Its Investiga
tions are embodied In a bulletin now
made public. As the subject has a
local as well as general Interest, we
give herewith the bulletin's substance.
Investigation has shown that, in an
nverage year, flO human lives are lost In
forest llres, $23,000,000 worth of real
properly Is destroyed, 10,''7-,0S9 acres of
timber land are burned over, and young
forest growth worth, at the lowest esti
mate, $7n,HO0.(l0O, Is killed. A special
canvass of the country by the depart
ment of agriculture In lS'Jt discovered
lL',000,000 acres of timber land destroyed
These figures arc mere estimates,
which fall far short of showing In full
the damage done. Xo account at all Is
taken of tlie loss to the country due to
tlie Impoverishment of the soil by lire,
to the ruin of water courses, and the
drylng-up of springs. Kven the amount
of limber burned is very imperfectly
calculated, and, the actual quantity de
stroyed Is far In excess of that account
ed for. Forest fires In tills country have
grown so common that only those are
reported that are of such magnitude
as to threaten large communities. The
lumbering Industry In remote sections
of tho country may be ruined and peo
ple forced to flee for their lives without
a mention of the disaster beyond the
places near where It occurred.
The tires that burnt this year in
Washington and Oregon were uncom
mon only in the number of lives lost.
The burning of logging and mining
camps and farm buildings, the loss to
the country In the destruction of timber
and young tree growth, Is of yearly
occurrence. Kvery fall, not only In
Washington, Oregon, Colorado, and
Wyoming, but up and down the Pacific
coast and all over the Rocky mountain
country flies burn great holes in the
forests and destroy the national wealth.
Tlie air of the mountains over hun
dreds of miles is pungent with tlie
smoke of conflagration, and navigation
on Paget sound has often been imped
ed by smoke. The following comment
by Dr. Henry flannett, of the United
Slates geological survey, should convey
a fair Idea of the damage done in the
state or Washington: "In less than a
generation two-fifths of the standing
timber has been destroyed in one of
the richest timber regions on the con
tinent, and of tlie destruction more than
half has been caused by fire. Assuming
that tlie timber would, If standing, have
the value nf ","i cents per thousand feet,
not less tliin $30,000,000 worth has gone
up in smoke, a dead loss to the people
of the state."
According to the bureau's records, tlie
most disastrous forest fire In the history
of tliis country occurred in October,
1S71, simultaneous with the burning of
Chicago. It extended all across north
ern Michigan and Wisconsin and into
Minnesota. At least 1,000 persons were
burned to death and 13,000 were made
homeless. The property Us has never
been calculated. The Hinckley fire of
1S!)I, which destroyed Hinckley and five
other Minnesota villages, burned to
death 41S persons, destroyed $750,000
worth of farm and town property, and
about 400 square miles or forest. A lire
In southeast Michigan in 1SSI burned
the forest on IS townships, destroyed
$.000,000 worth of other property,
burned til death 125 persons, and made
homeless ,",,000. Another Michigan forest
fire, which occurred In IS'.hi, made
homeless 2,000 persons and destroyed
town and farm property worth $1,230,
000. Wisconsin lost by lire In May,
1SIM, ll'tf square miles of forest and
other property worth $2,000,000. In 1&9I,
in Wisconsin, 13 persons lost their lives
and !I,WI0 their homes, and $2,000,000
worth of town and farm property wan
destroyed in the Phillips lire.
The enumeration of great forest llres
could lie extended almost Indefinitely,
One feature, however, Is common to
them all: They were small llres before
they grew uncontrollable, and with lit
tle trouble might have been extinguish
ed, r'nr example, tlie Hinckley ilro
smoked as a ground tire for weeks and
nobody paid It serious attention. Hut
one day tlie wind rose and fanned ihe
smouldering embers Into flame, tho
Hume caught In the dry underbrush,
leaped into the trees and became a lira
nf so terrible a volume that no human
power could stay It,
Legislation, even in the east, has done
little toward solving the forest-lire
problem, Pennsylvania, Minnesota,
Massachusetts, and Xow York are pos
slhle exceptions. The best forest-lire
laws are probably thoso of Pennsyl
vania, which makes tin annual expendi
ture of $15,000 In support of them.
Stale constables serve as fire wardens
in their townships nnd receive extra
pay for their services, Minnesota,
brought to a sense of responsibility by
disasters, of which the Hinckley fire
was the. most terrible, has established
mi eflielent foreat-tire system. Massa
chusetts has had good legislation a
the matter. The Xow York forest-flre
laws, though generally limited In their
effect to statu reserves and parks, have
brought good results. West of the
Rocky mountains little Is dono toward
the feuppresslon of forest llres, except
by the forest rangers on government
reseryes, who are employed by the
department of the Interior,
Tho creation of u sentiment against
forest llres Is the first step toward their
suppression, Legislation Is necessary,
but' It must be accompanied by the
co-operation of tlie people and tho of.
liters charged with the enforcement of
the law. The fall nnd the early spring,
befote Vegetation bus begun, are the
dangerous seasons for forest fires In
most densely-wooded parts of tho
country. At such times special precau
tions should be taken nnd the people
should be kept alert by constant re
mtudcts of the peril. An excellent Idea
as the bureau of forestry suggested Is
to placard trees along the roads and
trails with notices of the danger and
warnings of penalties to be Incurred by
those who violate the Ilro laws.
According to latest accounts, Prince
Titan Is endeavoring to foment a re
bellion in tlie Flowery Kingdom. If
Tiian only had two or three American
yellow journals to whoop It up for him,
he would no doubt be able to create a
disturbance worthy of his rank.
The one fact which eclipses all others
In tlie relations of labor to politics Is
that the Republican parly in national
administration spells prosperity while
the Democratic party In national power
means hard times. Don't think that
laboring men cannot see this.

OUR ELECTRICAL GROWTH.
TDK USE of electricity for lighting In
the United States began In a small
way n ji recently as thirty years ago,
with the manufactures of small ma
chines for arc lamps, followed about ten
years later with equally modest machines
for incandescent lighting. The ordinary
arc dynamo would carry from 25 to E0
lumps, requiring fifty horsepower to drive
It, and the Incandescent machine would
reed about l.uoo lamps of sixteen candle
power and use onu hundred and twenty
Wo learn from Bulletin 215 of the
twelfth census that the adoption In 1SS5 of
practical methods for utilizing tlie alter
nating current, changed the whole upeet
of nlfulrs, nnd tho change first became
publicly apparent in the eleventh census.
At. that time (ISMi. in the state of Xew
York, only :I,:)I0 Incandescent lamps in.
Isolated plants were operated with al
ternating currents, while of tlie l,2ii4 dy
namos la s rvlce In central stations, only
IMi were of the newer alternating type.
Xow, we have the huge 3,00 horsepower
two-phase dynamos in operation at
Xlugiira, whllo others of 10,000 horsepower,
tlie largest ever built, are contracted for.
Further, the rp.0) horsepower alternators
atXiagura develop current at 2,200 volts,
which, by means of transformers, is
raised to 1,100 to 2.20O volts, anil trans
mitted to Buffalo for tho trolley lines,
Since ISM, has developed tho vast eleo
tiic street railway system, and, mote
recently, plunU for charging tho batter
ies ol' electric automobiles have sprung
up, nnd also thn use of dynamos, Instead
of primary batteries, In busy telegraph
and telephone; offices. In addition, there
is the large Increase in tho uso of elec
tric machines for mining nnd general
power purposes. For electric work gener
ally, no less limn 17,539 patents hnvo been
taken out in the last twenty-five years.
Wo must also bear III mind Ihe rapid
strides wo have made In the last twenty
yeais la the manufacture and use of elec
tric apparatus and supplies for our tele
graphs, telephone, stock-tickers, burglar
ahirnn and other electrical conveniences
Speaking of electrical apparatus and
supplies generally, but excluding the
hundreds of thousands of wood, Iron or

Mr. T. C, Mni'tiu, tho export sppoial
agent of the census, makes this signifi
cant remark: "At least ono explanation
of the rapid rise, or tho United States to
Its present position In International af
fairs and among the manufacturing na
tions may be found In the willingness of
Its people to pay as much for electricity
as for bread about $7 annually per capita
of the 75,0U0,VJ population."
Another surprising fact Is that tho man
ufacture of dynanios-electije apparatus
Is carried on In no fewer than twenty
states, with Xew "'York leading, It is
slgnlllcant that while the average price
per horsepower of tlie dynamos of var
ious sizes up to 5.0C0 horsepower, has been
wiuly $14; the 10.000 hnrncpnwcr dynamos
have been sold at a price approximating
only $7 per horsepower, It should also ho
noted that though thesp machines are to
