Color spite, one of the growing
menaces of the country, got its re
buke in a Norristown court the other
day when Judge Swartz informed a

that case. The fad of telling liow you
( detest a black face, once pretty well
limited to the south, where there Is
some ground for the prejudice, has
lately been spreading north, though
its foothold In the west is ns yet
nominal. Tills juror at Norristown,
who does not nppoar to have been n
southern man or in any way familiar
with the social conditions In the
south, presumably thought it real
smart and clever to say ho had "no

COOK VS. PEARY SUIT.
If it be true that Dr. Frederick A.
Cook, somewhere on the high seas,
has brought suit for damages against
Commander Robert E. Peary, at pres
ent lecturing on that probably still
u n found Polo to stolid audiences of
Johnny Bulls and other folk beyond
seas, the American people at large
have a feast of laughter on the way
that cannot be exceeded by anything
their shores have seen since the Hon.
LI Hung Chang, the Chinese em
peror's pet envoy and boss borrower
for the Celestials, was over here try
ing to raise money in 1S9G.
What does Dr. Cook expect to
prove against Commander Peary?
He was not in this country 24 hours
after the doctor's polar competitor
got back to his partisans of the Army
and Navy Club and, according to
Cook's allegation, "commenced to
talk about him." How does Dr.
Cook or Commander Peary either,
for that matter expect to prove he
found that long-elusive top of the
world toward which pole-seekers have
been - sledging, and around which
white men and Eskimos have been
famishing and starving, since those
early days of G. W. Melville and oth
er pioneer pole explorers? Can he
point 'to a vindicatory verdict from
the University of Copenhagen, that
"neutral body in a neutral nation"
on which, until last January, he plac
ed such simple, unostentatious and
trustful reliance? The rector of
Copenhagen University, a somewhat
solemn as well as sagacious gentle
man of the sciences, shook his head
above the table that held Cook's Arc
tic data; he was "persuaded, though
reluctant to admit it," that the
Brooklyn explorer didn't know where
the Pole was save as he had seen it
since boyhood boldly Indicated on the
blue and pink surface of a geography
map. Does he expect to prove Peary
collusion and chicanery by Harry
Whitney, the young New Haven mil
lionaire whose peculiar stamp of
wanderlust has led him to spend so
much time and goodness knows how
mucli money hunting in the Arctic
night? Harry Whitney sailed the
other day for Greenland, Iceland,
Labrador and way stations, without
a word as to the alleged tampering
with the Cook outfit stored In the
cache at Etah, and' 'Harry Whitney
has gone back to that mooted coun
try of Cook and Peary in Peary's old
ship Roosevelt, a fact that may or
may not lend color to the belief that
he Is now a Peary partisan, but which
just the same Is worthy of being
taken into consideration.
While wo cannot for tho life of us
see where the first claimant of tho
Pole lias a leg to stand on, legally or
morally, still we do honestly hope,
for one reason, that Dr. Cook's suit Is
real and that lie Is to press it just
so soon as he can get back from
Valpariso, Cuba, London, Constanti
nople, Brownsville and other points
of moro than passing interest whore

other would call tho Hon. John R.

Fire Chief Croker of New York is
the nephew of Tammany Boss Rich
ard Croker, who ruled New York so
long and who, on the whole, was not
the most admirable sort of a citizen;
but the chief is right when he takes
the civil service commission to task
for loading up his fire-fighting force
with men of inferior physique who
get on because they can write plainly,
read English quickly and correctly,
and are fitted out with a Twentieth
century knowledge of mathematics.
The chief says a book education is
not the main essential fof an engi
neer, a hoseman or a driver; that
"husky, stout fellows, even if they
can't read or write or cipher, are the
men to fight fires." The commis
sion has retaliated to the chief's criti
cism of its appointees by cutting the
height minimum half an inch and
the weight minimum five pounds.
This is plainly wrong. New York
pays high for her 8,000 policemen
and New York pays high for her 4,

stout enough to keep peace in the
city. Her firemen are not always on
a physical par with her policemen.

That New York woman who turned

through, because while she was work

Chief Croker of the New York firo
department bitterly denounces the
civil service commission plan of se
lecting firemen for their theoretical
knowledge rather than for their
brawn nnd courage. He said of the
commissioners: "They have given mo
hollow-chested, cigarette smoking
highbrows. I don't want 'em. Give
me huskies with lungs." These re
mnrks were caused by the death of
two brave men nt a recent blaze
where the civil service firemen failed

At an auction sale of government
school lands held at Medicine Hat,
Alberta, last week, 4S7 parcels of
land, aggregating 7C.300 acres, were
sold. The total amount realized was 1
$1,00S.G3", the highest price being I
51C5 an acre for 1 CO acres within a'
few miles of this city and the lowest
price $7 an acre, with an average of!
slightly over $13. Since the opening1
of the government land office at Med- 1
iclne Hat on April 4 last 2,899
homesteads have been filed on a total i
of 371,169 acres of land. Settlers'
are still pouring in from tho United
States and every steamer arriving
from the British Isles is loaded with
immigrants for the Canadian West.
Glenn H. Curtiss was not the only
aviator who had his eye on that $10,
000 prize for flying from Albany to
New York. Several others intended
to make the attempt, but Curtiss had
the luck, the pluck and the gumption
to get into the game first, Just as
Louis Paulhan, the Frenchman who
stole a march on his rivals, made the
trip from London to Manchester
ahead of the other fellows and gath
ered In $50,000 as a reward. But
prize-getting, stimulating as it may
be to effort, is not all there Is to
aerial navigation. The operators of
aeroplanes have made some wonder
ful demonstrations. Now, if the
science of aviation is to be more wide
ly useful, let them show how the air
ships can be employed with safety in
practical everyday service. Pittston
Criticism of medical education in
various states by the Carnegie Foun
dation will serve a good purpose, even
if one of the first results is confusion
of mind in the case of a few. In
fact, that confusion already exists
wherever there is failure to distin
guish between the reputable institu
tion of learning and the degree fac
tory, or between the products of both.
Doctors suffer ns much as any class
In the community from criticism,
caused by unreasonableness or ignor
ance. The high ethical code under
which they work, forbidding as it
does self advertisement or open crit
icism of one another, furnishes a cer
tain advantage to the less scrupulous.
A formal setting forth of conditions,
therefore, by an independent even if
not infallible authority, must work
for good In the long run. Pittston
Twenty Gallons of Milk From One
Cow in a Day.
Twenty gallons of milk a day from
one cow Is the record of a York Run,
Fayette county, man, according to re
ports that have reached tho Connells
ville Courier, but the sumo rumors
for selling milk that didn't originate
with the cow.
According to the story, William
Davis, a prosperous fanner of the
York Rim district, has been arrested
for disposing of lacteal fluid that does
not come up to specifications. It is
alleged the man has invented a chem

out of water.
