President Tnft Is not a man who
wobbles In his attitude when con
fronted with Important questions.
He Is not a man who hesitates to
take his stand on the side which
he believes to be right, regardless
of the consequences to himself or
his party. He has only one stand
ard of measurement. Tiiat he is
very much opposed to boycotts, was
evidenced on the occasion o the
visit of the committee of 50 proml
nent residents of South Bethlehem,
at the National Capitol last week.
They appeared to bring before the
Chief Executive of the nation the
matter of the strikers of the Beth
lehem Steel Company, making an
effort to do injury to the business
of the concern, by advising the for
eign countries with whom they have
contracts, to withdraw them, alleg
ing that the plant was not in a pos
ition to do the class of work de
sired. When the President met
the gentlemen composing the com
mittee ho told them in no unmis-
taken terms that he was opposed to
boycotts of all kinds. This ' posi
tion of the president will be of in
terest throughout the entire coun
try. In his speech to the delegation,
President Taft said:
" I haven't followed closely what
has happened at Bethlehem at all.
I don't know. I don't know what
the statements are to which you
refer. I don't know what Govern
ment contracts thero are that would
naturally go to Bethlehem, or on
which Bethlehem would have an
opportunity to bid. I can only say
this that I am utterly opposed to
the principle of a boycott. Every
Issue ought to be settled on Its own
merits. If the Bethlehem work
isn't up to contract then the Gov
ernment ought not to give tho con
tracts to It. If it is, then the con
tracts ought to go to it without
regard to controversies that Beth
lehem may have with third persons,
whether those third persons be
customers or employes. The merits
of tho controversy between Bethle
hem and Its employes. Insofar as
tho public are concerned, will bo
settled on tho merits of that con
troversy and tho mutual relations,
or lack of relations, botween tho
Bethlehem Companies and their
employes; anil there is no relation
between tho ono controversy and tho
other, because I say that with em
phasis because to hold otherwise
is to introduce into Government
methods the system upon which tho
boycott rosts, to wit: that third
persons are to bo involved against
their will in a controversy, with
respect to which thoy havo no nat
"Therefore without knowing any
thing about the facts, I Bay to you
that if Bethlehem doesn't do good
work, it is for tho Government to
find out and to act pn it, nnd to
refuse its contracts on that ground,
and not because it is concerned in
a fight or In a controversy with its
employes. Insofar as tho public or
tho Government or a part of tho
public is interested in tho contro
versy botween tho employes nnd tho
companies that Is determined on
tho merits of that controversy nnd
not with respect to tho Govern
ment business. That Is tho posi
tion I occupy. It Is tho position
my administration, as far as I can
control it, will occupy."
"A good name Is rather to bo
chosen than great riches, loving j
favor than silver and gold." Bo
not like' tho old miser who kept
starving nnd grubbing and saving,
for a contented mind is better than
great gain. Tho best book says,
"If wo hnvo bread and rnlment, bo
therewith content." it is not wlso
to be for self nlonc; not tho ono
who has most of this world's goods
Is happiest. But he who uses what
ho has for tho good of himself and
those about him. We havo visited
where they seemed to have every
thing of tills world's goods heart
could wish for, yet their whole de
sire was to turn tho dollar toward
them. Don't sit with folded hands
on tho stool of do-nothing, but
whatsoever thy hands ilnd to do, do
that with all thy might. "Let nil
you do be done decently nnd in
order." If any among you do not
work, neither should ho cat."
"Bear yo one another's burdens, and
so fulfill the law of Christ."
TEASING THE TATTLE ONES.
Did you ever notice a grown-up
person tensing a small child? Did
you ever tease a child yourself?
Wero you ever teased in your own
childhood? Do you recall the emo
tions that lllled your heart, and
caused the blood to mount to your
face? Do 'you recall wishing you
were big enough and strong enough
to work your will on your tormen
tor? These questions will be answered
in the affirmative by the majority
of adult readers. Most of us have
seen children teased by the grown
up friends of their parents or by
casual passers-by. Few of us are
absolutely guiltless. It is an
amusing thing, we say, the action
of the tormented child. Yet, when
we permit memory to wander back
to the days of our own childhood
most of us recall the face of some
man or woman for whom we cherish
ed a bitter feeling nnd to avoid
whom we would cheerfully go a long
distance out of our way.
It does seem surprising that men
and women who had such an ex
perience in their youthful days
should so frequently be guilty of
the very conduct they condemned
so bitterly in their own childhood.
They have unkind memories of per
sons who teased them In bygone
days; yet they are willing to incur
the risk of making Inveterate foes
out of the children of to-day be
cause they want to repeat the con
duct which moved them to anger
long ago. Isn't It a singular thing
that we never learn wisdom by our j
own experiences; that we repeat the
follies in adult life which stirred
us to wrath in youth? 1
The worst thing one can do a
child is to provoke it to angej? A
great many persons do this from
no evil motive. The child has cun
ning ways. What fun there Is in
aggravating it to little displays of
temper. How laughter provoking
are its retorts. Ono finds a great
deal of amusement in these little
exhibitions of human nature. It is
nil "fun," and in a little while the
child will forget that anybody was
tormenting it. But why not ask
yourself the question: "Did I for
get?" Is it not a fact that among
our bitterest and most vivid memo
ries are those which concern the
sufferings wo ensured at the hands
of certain "smart" men and women
while we wero yet children?
Children should not be tensed. It
is a crime against human nature to
nmuse oneself at tho expense of the
happiness nnd tho well-being of an
other, and especially of a child. We
aro told that their angels do con
stantly behold tho faco of their
Father in heaven and thnt it would
bo better for the person who of
fends ono of these littlo ones if he
had nevor been horn. Tho tormen
ted child becomes short tempered,
insolent and impudont and acquires
a disposition which leads him to
commit improprieties that greatly
injuro his prospects for success in
tho battle of life.
It's a great wrong to child life
to thus sow tho seeds of wretched
ness and sourness In tho heart.
Hotter seek for somo other form of
April 18, 1910.
Northeastern Pennsylvania scored
Inst week in the appointment of lion.
C. Fred Wright to tho position of
State Treasurer, In tho vacancy caus
ed by tho death of Hon. J. A. Stober,
Treasurer-elect. Governor Stuart's
announcement enmo in tho nnturo
of n surprise to almost every ono,
for very few suspected that tho Gov
ernor would go to ono of tho smaller
counties for this Important office.
His choice has been approved by tho
stnto nowspnpers, nnd it is agreed
that tho ex-Congrossmnn will meas
ure up to tho requirements in every
way. He was given a reception by
his townsmen of all political beliefs
last week, and ho will nssumo his
now duties with the best wishes of
a host of friends.
Incidentally the appointment of
Mr. Wright may make somo changes
on tho political map In tho north-1
eastern section. Whatever may have
been tho prospect for tnklng a can
didate for Governor from that lo
cality, there is no longer any hope.
Two big state offlces would not be
located so close together this year.
Another question to bo considered
Is getting possession of tho office.
Tho Attorney General has Hied pa
pers In tho Supremo Court looking
toward a decision In the case, but
that august body may not take offi
cial notice until May 2d, as there
enn be no vacancy until thnt time,
it Is believed, however, that in view
of the important Interests involved,
that the court will decide very
promptly, for a condition might
arise during which tho business of
tho state, so far as finances aro con
cerned, would be at a standstill.
Stnto Treasurer Sheatz Is represent
ed by Hon. W. U. Hensel, of Lan
caster, a former Attorney General,
and very able lawyer, while Mr.
Wright's end of tho suit will be look
ed after by Attorney General Todd.
Lieutenant Governor- Robert S.
Murphy has announced his candidacy
for the Republican nomination for
Governor, the first In the field. As
the nomination Is conceded to the
western part of the state, Governor
Murphy is alright geographically,
as he is in many other ways. He
Is popular wherever known, has
great executive ability and would
make a strong candidate. We shall
probably have to wait until after
the middle of June before we know
who are candidate is to be, and by
that time we shall know who we are
to lick this fall. June lDth hns been
selected for naming day by the un
terrlfied, and Allentown is the place.
As that is Senator Dowalt's home,
some suppose that means the nomi
nation for him, bu tnot this year.
Just now it looks as though La
Rue Munson of Wllllamsport would
be selected by the Democrats. He
should be satisfied with what he got
last year, and let our friend Mr.
Berry have a chance, but tho leaders
are not for Berry. Guffey, who
would be a boss, only that he is a
Democrat and they havo no bosses,
does not favor Mr. Berry, and that
settles it. A whole lot of us would
like to see the ex-State Treasurer
nominated; for various reasons, but
that pleasure is to be denied us this
year. Barring the fact that Berry
was a Democrat, and that cuts no ice,
personally, ho was not a bad man to
have around, and was not the most
unpopular official about the Hill by
Judge Wilson spent several days
in Harrisburg last week, profession
ally. He bears his years very well
and takes a keen Interest In things
politically and otherwise.
Judge Searle finished his court
enses on Thursday and left for New
York to see Judge Archbald, of the
U. S. District Court, start on his
Europenn trip. He will probably bo
called to Harrisburg again In May.
Judge Searle created a very favor
able impression among tho mem
bers of the local bar, some of whom
have a wide reputation for ability

lature to gather Information and
data for uso in tho proposed re
vision of tho laws controlling the
taxing of corporations In this state,
held a session in Scranton Saturday
and left the city with much of tho
information desired. Among tho
changes in the law urged was the
placing of a tax of from two to five
cents on each ton of coal produced
for the benefit of widows and or
phans of victims of tho mines. This
suggestion was made by Judge H.
M. Edwards and was received as de
serving of special consideration.

TO PROTECT THE FORESTS.
Stnto Officials Send Out Warnings
to Prevent Fires.
Owing to the largo number of
forest fires throughout Pennsylvania
recently, the State Forestry Depart
ment has been deluged with requests
for official warnings against the
starting of forest fires. The De
partment has no warnings, but has
sent copies of the following to per
sons who may desire to have it
printed nnd posted for tho infor
mation of tho public:
"Do not set fire to this land. Do
not set fire on adjoining land and
permit It to run upon this land.
Do not throw burning matches or
tobacco upon tho ground careless
ly; fire may result. Do not leave a
camp fire unattended. The setting
of fires carelessly, intentionally or
negligently is a crime under tho
statutes of Pennsylvania, punish
able by line or Imprisonment.
"If you discover a flro extinguish
It at once; send for help If neces

of nil citizens will prevent forest

your puro water supply; they are of
great value to your State. Do noth
