ALL the important state officers of
Kansas have united in testifying that
woman suffrage in the municipal elec

adopt it. Those same officers united

Governor Foraker on an out-and-out

THE world is full of examples of
bravery in battle and exhibitions of
self-sacrificing heroism in moments of
supreme peril. The engineer of a
Maryland coal mine, however, on Fri
day last, displayed a defiance of dan
ger in behalf of human life that is
worthy of more than passing recogni
tion. Forty three men were impri
soned in a distant portion of the
Allegheny mine by a flood of water
bursting through a division wall from
an older and abandoned mine. To
rescue these people, 11. L. Meem, the
engineer of the colliery, entered the
flooded workings unattended, and,
after wading and swimming for nearly
half a mile through the underground
passages, reached them. Then he i
discovered for the first time tlmt a
man and hoy were imprisoned in a
more remote portion of the pit. Un
attended, lie went to their rescue,
placed the hoy on his shoulders and,
leading the way through the flood, he
conducted the entire party back to
light and safety. It was a brave
action and one that should render the
name of H. L. Meem famous in the
history of Maryland's coal mines.—
A Hourtl of Trade a Necessity.
All over the country at the present
time cities, towns and villages are vieing
with one another in offering inducements
to manufacturers wishing to change their
location. Few have any idea what ener
getic efforts are being made in live pro
gressive places to attract enterprises of
all sorts, and direct them from the old
established centres of industry. By
means of liberal advertising, sending out
agents to those manufacturers who are
supposed to be open to any kind of in
ducement, and by the offer of sums of
money and land a continual movement
of invested capital is going on into newer
channels, and important changes are
constantly occurring in every branch of
trade. With a board of trade in our
midst to make known the advantages of
Freeland as a manufacturing centre this
town would contain several industries.
The supply of coal in this vicinity is as
yet scarcely touched, notwithstanding
rumors to the contrary. Nevertheless,
it is not good policy for a town to depend
upon any one industry and recent ex
periences have made our merchants well
acquainted with that fact. The uncer
tainty of the coal trade lias proven that
it cannot he sufficiently relied upon for
any definite period, and the sooner the
business men and those who have the
welfare of the town at heart do their
duty in encouraging capitalists to locate
plants here the sooner will Freeland he
released from its dependence upon King
Coal. The facilities we possess arc un
known to outsiders and there is no better
channel to give them publicity than
through a good energetic hoard of trade.
This subject should he given immediate
attention and the results obtained will
benefit all, besides placing Freeland in
the ranks of the most progressive towns
of the state.
A great deal of unnecessary criticism
lias been indulged in during tlie past
few weeks against the miners examining
board of tliis district, on account of tlieir
action in demanding from eacli person,
whether examined or registered, the
sum of fifty cents. The seventh section
of the act says: "That all persons who
shall he actually engaged as miners at
the time of the passage of this act, shall
lie entitled to registration without ex
amination, upon producing satisfactory
j proof that they have been employed ill
j an anthracite mine in this common
wealth." The fee for this service is
twenty-live cents. For this the miner
gets nothing in return to certify that lie
is a miner and entitled to be employed
as such, and should lie remove from his
present place of employment he will be
under the necessity of returning to the
; board and procuring a certificate for
j which fifty cents will he charged. To
those who are objecting to paying fifty
i cents we would say, pay it, take your
[ certificate and you need not he under
I any necessity of following the board all
over the district when you have occasion
Ito change your place of working. The
, hoard are trying to save persons further
expense by giving tliem tlie certificate
of registration and competency at the
'< same time. Can it he that there is some
; sour grape liusiness about this? Remem
ber, gentlemen, that tlie members of tlie
j board are workingmen like yourself and
| are no doubt carrying out their instruc
| tions as best they can. Some of you
may get a chance next year.

TannerUm anil the Urami Army.
That was an exceedingly unwise re
solve that was forced upon tlie Grand
Encampment of the Grand Army of the
Republic in the Corporal Tanner business,
at its Milwaukee session on Thursday
and ail unwarrented meddling in a J
government matter, now undergoing j
official inquiry. Tanner is ail officer of
the federal government, charged witli j
loose and improper administration of the
pension office, and these charges have
had at least enough of substance in them
to demand official investigation; and
while this inquiry is going on—inquiry
sanctioned by soldiers at least as meri
torious and patriotic as those composing
tlie Grand Encampment—that body is
put into the position of prejudging the j
case as if to influence the judgment of
those engaged in the inquiry. That is j
not a creditable attitude for the Grand j
Army to their representa
tives in the Grand Army Encampment
have challenged public censure by their
conduct in forcing tlicm to occupy it.
Tlie proper position for all law abiding
citizens, as to tlie official conduct of tlie
Commissioner of Pensions, was and is to
insist on prompt examination and report
upon tlie accusations of mal-administra
tion made against him, and to wait a
reasonable time for tlie report. But not
so tlie clamorous Tannerites in the
Grand Encampment; they must have
"endorsement" first and investigation
afterward. It was pointed out to tliem
by some of their more sensible comrades,
that they had no knowledge whatever as
to Commissioner Tanner's administra
tion of his office, except what was pub
lished in tlie newspapers, anil that tliey
should pass no resolution oil tlie subject
until they did know whether lie had
been unjustly accused or not. The affair
can hardly fail to he unwelcome to
sensible and honorable comrades of tlie
Grand Army, for it carries with it ail air
as if any kind of loose administration of
a public office—any sort of jerky, cranky,
j flighty, inequitable methods are to he
upheld—if the official happens to be a
Grand Army man. AVe have 110 sort of
doubt that such a feeling is repugnant to
tlie great majority of the comrades of the
Grand Army, and it certainly can find
no countenance from tlie majority of the
people of the United States. — Phila.

In tlie recent great tariff debate in tlie
house of representatives tlie leaders of
tlie Republican party boasted that since
the war they had abolished taxes to tlie
amount of $300,000,000, but not one dol
lar did tliey show had been removed
from the necessaries of life. They
simply boasted of their crime against
labor, and gloried in tlioir shame. A
reduction of taxation, however, on tlie
prime necessities of life need never be
expected at the hands of the Republican
party. Its leaders are compelled to obey
tlie robber barons who plunder tlie
homes, the farms and tlie workshops of
the people, and are thus enabled to con
tribute liberally of their ill-gotten wealth
to tlie corruption of the ballot box and
tlie success of tlie Republican party.
During the last session of congress a bill
for the revision of tlie tariff was urged
upon the country by the leaders of that
party, and the duties were increased in
every schedule it contained, and espe
cially on all woolen goods, iron and steel.
Social Equality tlie Remedy.
Everywhere popular freedom, for botli
individual and state is being insidiously
encroached upon, and denounced as a
bad thing. These extremes of wealth
piling up in the hands of those who
produce nothing, and deepening poverty
becoming tlie lot of more and more of
those who produce, are fast breaking up
a once happy and common society into
envious, hating factions. Tlie poor look
upon tlie rieli with envy; the ricli look
upon tlie poor with cold contempt, and
between tlie two classes there is a widen
ing gulf and a merciless warfare. This
condition poisons the whole people.
Social equality once broken up, religious
fellowship soon follows. That process of
social disintegration is going on through

THE TRAINING OF FUTURE PARENTS-
Some Regrettable Feature* of the Pres
ent Lux System.
j A few years ago Frank R. Stockton
! wrote an essay on "The Training of
Parents," which although semi-satir
j ical, had in it a substratum of whole
| some truth. Briefly stated, his argu
' ment was that a great change had
taken place in the constitution of the
i family, especially in the United States;
that the child had usurped the former
prerogative of the parent, and, there
fore, that it was time for us to recog
| nine the altered condition and to give
to the children of the present day as
} sistance and counsel in the judicious
[ training of their parents.
Among the rules suggested for the |
government of parents the primary
; proposition was that fllial control
should begin in the first years of pa
] rental life, when the minds of the pa
rents would be in a pliant and molda
ble condition. If it should become
necessary to punish a parent the child
! must not forget the importance of
tempering severity with mercy; that
once having taken the reins of govern
ment in hand it must never resign
them, but constantly keep a guiding
and controlling power over both the
; father and the mother. In fact, all
the old-fashioned rules that were sup
posed to be applicable to the trainiug
of children were used as illustrations,
the sum of advice to children being: j
Train up a parent in the way ho should
go, and when you are old you will
know how to go that way yourself.
Allowing for the humorous exagger
ation of Mr. Stockton, it cannot be
j denied that the deference paid today by
many parents to the wishes and opin
| ions of their children has often a seri
: oous effect upon their mental and
moral growth, and is directly rcsponsi
, ble not only for parental Jisappoint
-1 ment but also for heavy sorrow. The
Puritan sternness at one time in
vogue, the loveless and repellent oliar
j acter of the creed, the constant iter
ation of duty and the curbing of every
innocent and joyous emotion, simply
| incitud a longing to break such irk
l some bonds, and when the opportu-
I uity to do offered itself the other ex-
I treme was reached, and license took
1 the place of repression. Aud yet it
may be questioned if this "keep-off
i the-grass" method of training was
more hurtful than that which either
, looks upon a child as a delicate exotic,
too refined and tender to be brought
into contact with the less favored
mortals, or else abandons all efforts at
control, consoling itself with the well
worn reflection that the child can take
care of itself.
Of these two methods the latter
seems to be the most popular. The
feeling of independence and sclf-as
' i sertiveness that is characteristic of
f | the average American mind is too
; j much- relied upon. It is presumed
. that the let-alone policy will stimulate
this spirit; whereas, on the contrary,
the natural result is to bring into exist
' cnco a feeling of disregard for the
rights of others and an obtrusiveness
t and a hardness which speedily degen
erate into the worst type of selfishness.
In the streets, in stores and hotels, on
street and railrood cars and steani
! boats, there can be daily seen the out
> come of such pernicious training, the
most regrettable fuature of the matter
, being that the parents seem complete
. ly indifferent, or else lend a tacit ap
proval to that which thoughtful peo
ple look upon with alarm. Pertuess
i is considered to be precocity, rude-
I ncss is simply youthful exuberance,
while selfishness is held to be nothing
, but an indication of a progressive
business spirit which hold its own aud
' not allow itself to be cheated out of
t its just due.
i Never has the cultivation of the
. graces of obedience, respect, reverence,
manliness, and womanliness been more
profoundly needed than now. These
graces lie at the root of all good so
cial intercourse. Like mercy, they
are twice blessed; wherever they radi
| ate they illumine and beautify. Let
us try to cultivate such virtues in our
children. — Philadelphia Record.

Mounting an Elephant.
Mr. llarras, iu his "India and Tiger
Hunting," gives a description of his
selection of an elephant, and his first
experience in riding it. He was offered
his choice of half a dozen, and at once
picked out a big fellow nearly 10 feet
• high. It's name was Koghanath Guj,
and, as Mr. Berras says, it bore an ex
cellent character for both courage and
gentleness. It had already killed two
men, to be sure, but that was hardly
, tho animal's fault, as they approached
carelessly when it was furious.
"I began by feeding him with bread
and sugar, whilst the keeper was
j explaining to me the animal's manners
' and customs.
"Though ever ready to obey orders,
he much disliked having to kneel. An
elephant's elbows are tender, and it
sometimes gets a diseased joint from
being made constantly to assuqie this
[ posture on all sorts of grouud to enable
people to mount. I bogan, therefore,
by getting up in the orthodox style,
which was as follows:
"On standing before him and indi
! eating that you wished to mount ho
would lower himself by advancing
j both his front legs; you then took hold
of his lips at the root of tho tusks and
placed a foot on the tip of cash. He
then rose to his full height and tossed
up his head as high as his short neck
would allow and so enabled you to
to slide between his ears.
"To let me dismount he would half
stoop on one hind leg, and raise the
other outward. On this extended
limb I would slip by means of his tail,
and from thence to the ground, which
j last was an easy step.
"To do all this with an elephant at
the first interview was, naturally,
| rather risky but, as our acquaintance
was to be short, I thought it advisable
j to pass a vote of confidence at once. I
I wished my first ride to be a pleasure
i to all concerned, especially to Rog-
II hanath Guj, as it was his first experi
! ence with an enlightened European
"The native driver, from want of
I thought, keeps up a constant drum-
ming on tne beast's head with the
goad or 'aukus;' I therefore hoped not
to use it at all. Such an improvement
ail at once, liowevei, proved more
than the elephantine mind could grasp.
He began really to enjoy himself; go
ing his own way more than mine, till
at last he marched straight into an im
mense forest tree of the banyan species
and began to browse. He seized the
boughs above his head and, tugging
violently at them, brought them down
on my devoted skull.
"This was too much. I raised the
ankus and brought it dowu with a
blow that brought blood. This had
tile desired effect and ho at onco
bundled off by the road he knew I
wanted him to go. He merely took
with him a branch about the size of a
small apple tree to discuss as he went
along. From this moment we were
friends aud I do not liiink I bad to use
the hook agaiu so as to bring blood;

WASHINGTON, Sept. 2, 1889.
The wonderful difference between the
\ old and the new navy iB nowhere shown
j to better advantage than in the office of
the Secretary of the Navy, where two
j modelH form one of the most attractive
! centers of interest in the great building,
j Visitors are apt to overlook the second
I model in their admiration of the first, a
glittering mass of nickel and steel, a
perfect beauty, but those who do look
over into the window corner and study
the old vessel will find in it, or in the
contrast it offers to the new model, an
essay on improvement. This older
j model is of the ship-of-the-line Pennsyl
j vania, and its more modern, much
i larger rival Is of the armored cruiser
I Maino, now being constructed at New
i York. The former model is less than
one-twentieth the size of the latter, and
it is constructed in the rough jack-knife
carving style of old sailors, while that of
the Maine is a perfect likeness of the
I proposed vessel, every detail being re
produced in exact pro|K>rtion down to the
ItADICAL CHANGES IN WAR-SHIPS.
I The methods and means of conducting
naval warfare have undergone great and
radical changes in the past twenty-five
years. The experience of other nations,
added to the failures and successes of
our own country during the late war,
j have caused almost a transformation in
the system of attack and defense on
water. New inventions have come into
| the field to aid the progress and to-day
I the ship of war of a modern make is as
' totally unlike lier sister of a quarter of a
| century ago as the latter was different
from the Roman trireme. The old
Pennsylvania was launched at Philadel
j phia in 1837 and was burned at Norfolk
in 1861. She was built of wood and
followed the lines of ship builders of the
day of her birth. She rose out of the
water several fathoms and presented the
appearance of a great floating house.
She carried a complement of 1,100 officers
and men—a small army. This was in
conformity with the older ideas of naval
warfare, in which the boarder, with his
cutlass and pike, his dare-devil spirit
and his paralizing yell, swarmed over
the gunwales of his own ship and upon
the decks of the enemy, cutting, slash
ing, firing, throttling until he had
driven the foe beneath the decks or had
been swept back upon his own.
COMPARING THE COST ANIJ POWER.
J The contrast between the two models
I is rather confusing, for the dazzle of the
newer toy is apt to bewilder the observer
so that he neglects to draw a parallel.
The comparison draws out two lines of
figures, for the Pennsylvania cost $094,-
500 and the Maine will cost about $2,500,-
000, or nearly four times as much. The
Maine carries one-eighth as many guns
and one-third as many men. But in
destructive qualities she will be hundred
times as powerful and serviceable, show

A qUARTER OP A MILLION LOST.
When Secretary Tracy returns to the
city he will probably be invisible to cal
lers for a while. There are many diffi
cult problems awaiting settlement by
him. In the first place, the battle ship
Texas, with her weights and displace
ments, disputing constructors and faulty
plans, looms up. For nearly two years
the construction of the monster iron-clad
Texas has been going on, at a contem
plated expenditure of over $3,000,000.
To-day the proposed construction of the
vessel is on the verge of collapsing, at a
dead loss to the United States Govern
ment of over a quarter of a million dol
lars, by reason of mistakes in the plans
and displacement, by which the armor
of the vessel intended to protect the ma
chinery would be nearly submerged in
the water, leaving exposed the unpro
tected parts of the vessel. Then, too,
the unaccepted vessels —Vesuvius, Petrel
and Charleston—are not likely to make
tho Secretary's course an easy one for
the next few weeks or months. R.
