The National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis, has Just concluded a two days' session in Washington. The evidence present ed to the convention resulted in eon firming the belief In the efficacy of the open air method of cure which has been adopted in all the leading sanitorlums of the country. New Jersey courts of Justice do not seem to possess the requisite amount of imagination in order to make effect live the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde the ory of defense In murder cases. Secretary of the Navy Morton has determined to ask the President to al low him to leave the Cabinet on July 1 It Is known that President Roosevelt and Secretary Morton are not in accord on the question of railroad rate legis latlon. Notwithstanding this difference of opinion upon a question which he deems so Important, President Iioosevelt Iioosevelt entertains a high regard for Secre tary Morton, and is anxious that he shall remain in the Cabinet until Sep tember 1. The evidence of President Robbins of the Armour Car Lines Company, before before the Senate Committee on Interstate Interstate Commerce, reveals the existence of a more complete monopoly in the transportation of perishable fruits and vegetables than anyone believed was possible. President Robbins admitted that hlB company had twenty or thirty exclusive contracts with as many railroads railroads by which the latter were prevent ed from accepting any freight of that class unless they ship it in Armour cars No wonder that this evidence led Senator Senator Klkins to remark that the "Ar mours seem to have all the advantages and none of the responsibilities of common common carriers." The teamsters' strike I ake Strike in Chicago has not been Settlement, compromised, and it haa not yet ended. Negotiations Negotiations looking toward the settlement settlement of this trouble have been pending pending for many days. It now looks as though light could be seen at the end of this dark tunnel, but until we are in the daylight the end of the tunnel tunnel has not been reached. Scarcely a day haa passed that the newspaper offices throughout the land have not heard "the strike is ended." Every newspaper guards with 13 - inch guns its good name for honest reporting, and it has been a difficult task to avoid falling into the error of printing one or another of these fakes. ' NAVAL BATTLE IMMINENT. CAPTAIN MAHAN. who is ton - ceded to be the foremost authority authority on naval tactics and strategy strategy in the world, is of the opinion that the long delayed sea fight between the Russian and Japanese fleets will be fought sometime between May 20th and 23rd. His reason for believing so is founded on the recent reports that Admiral Admiral Rojestvensky's fleet is now proceeding proceeding north toward the Balangtang channel between Luzon and Formosa. According to press dispatches Rojestvensky Rojestvensky left the protection of the Annam coast on May 14. From the direction in which his ships were sailing when last seen It is believed that they are headed for the open Pacific Into which they must enter through the Balangtang Balangtang channel unless they materially change their course. The semi - protected waters of this arm of the ocean offer the best opportunities opportunities for the manoevreing of torpedo boats of which Admiral Togo has a great number, and Captain Mahan therefore believes that the Japanese admiral will make his attack there. His reason for believing that the time of the attack will be between May 20th and 23rd Is that the full moon will remain remain until the latter date, and that Admiral Admiral Rojestvensky will make all dispatch dispatch in order to pass through the channel before the nigfeU berem 4ark. When last reported Admiral Rojeet renakra fleet consisted of forty - two ahipa. Such a large number of Teasels must necessarily be scattered orer broad expanse of ocean and any strar - flera wll offer splendid opportunities for .attack to Admiral Togo's torpedo Boats and swift cruisers. Darkness aa effective ally to tbe attacking fleet In naval warfare especially if much dependence dependence can be placed on torpedo Doata. Xt will be the part of wisdom, therefore, for Admiral Rojestvensky to strain every effort to get oat into the open ocean before the moon begins to wane.

SAVE HAHNEMANN HOSPITAL. T Is proper to call attention again to the deplorable condition in which the finances of the Hahne mann Hospital are at the present time. On Monday the directors of the Insti tution will have to decide whether to close its doors or to continue it good work on a larger scale. Unless the sum of 117,000 is forthcoming by that time the hospital must be abandoned Hahnemann Hospital has been la existence for eight years. During that time It has done an Inestimable amount or good in Scranton. A crisis has now been reached in its affairs. Including the State appropriation of 115,000, which must be obtained before before June 1 if at all, there are now available for the purpose of erecting a new building about 155.000. Seven leen mousana dollars more are required required in order to construct such a building as the institution needs. This amount must be raised by public subscription subscription and at once. The site for the new building has already been provided. A plot of six excellently stiuated lots is available whenever the necessary funds for building purposes are at hand. It is impossible to believe that the generous generous and charitable people of Scranton will compel this noble Institution to close its doors for the lack of only a small fraction of the sum of money that will enable It to expand Its usefulness usefulness immeasurably. Only $17,000 of this total amount of $72,000 needed for building purposes remain to be raised. If the time was not so short there would be no doubt about the ability of the directors to raise this amount and there would - be no occasion for this pressing appeal. But the money must be obtained at once, otherwise the State appropria tion will be forfeited. It Is to be hoped that the necessary amount will be subscribed by Monday and that Hahnemann Hospital will enter upon a new career of usefulness. Throughout Christen - All Hall to dom, churches whose John Knox, cornerstones of faith and government are founded upon Presbyterianism will to - morrow revere the memory of John Knox, Presbyterian patriot. The day upon which John Knox was born Is not known. History tells us that It was "in May, 1505." There are facts which lead to the Inference that he first saw light about May 20, 1905. Hence the governing bodies of all Calvinlstlc denominations have set apart May 21. The public observance observance of his birth is something of an Innovation in America. All hall to John Knox. DOXT KNOCK. HE Scranton Base Ball Club re deemed itself yesterday. It has shown. Its friends and admirers, who were beginning to lose faith in its ability to keep up with the fast pace set by the company it is in, that it is made of the proper stuff to win games, and will win them, if only fortune is pro pitious. It is too early in the season to pass harsh Judgment on the club. Only twelve games have been played, and there is plenty of time in which to re trieve all the losses that have been In curred. The Scranton team may yet stand at the head of the League. The owners of the club are doing all that Is in their power to strengthen it, and they deserve encouragement rather than harsh criticism. criticism. Don't knock. TO PRESERVE THE !X)ItEBTS. ECRETARY WILSON, of the pe - partment of Agriculture, to which is assigned the Forest Reserve Service, has formulated a set of regu lations designed to develop a corps of rained government foresters. The For est Reserve Service has been placed un der the protection of the Civil Service aws, and promotion therein can be at tained only through merit. Original appointments appointments thereto are made from the list of cligibles who have passed the required examinations held in accord ance with the provisions of the Civil Service laws. These regulations are indicative of the growing sense of importance with which the government regards the arlous problems connected with the preservation of existing forests and the nerease of the timber area. The vig orous prosecution of the land frauds, which have been perpetrated in the Pacific Coast States, is another indi cation of the same sentiment. In many instances vast areas of valuable timber timber land have been fraudulently acquired acquired by Individuals and corporations by falsely representing it to be barren and unproductive. The government has acted none too soon In the matter or protecting tne country's supply of standing timber. n many parts of the country the de struction of the forests has already produced produced a disastrous effect on the pro - uctiveness of large areas of heretofore fertile land. The courses of what were once navigable streams are marked dur - the greater part of th year only by a bed of dry stones. The time has come when scientific forestation must supersede the wasteful destruction that has produced these disastrous disastrous effects. Timber culture must hereafter be an Industry of increasing Importance. . There are many sections ef the country which still contain large areas ef forest, but there are others in which the timbered area has been reduced reduced far below the minimum of safety necessary to insure continued fertility and an equable climate. The Forest Service of the Department of Agriculture Agriculture Is engaged In an excellent work, and It Is to be hoped that the plan of reorganisation adopted by Secretary Wilson will Increase Its efficiency. AFTERNOON ECHOES. HE Allied Arts Association, of T Brooklyn, has struck a cruel blow at Miss Phoebe Snow, the beauteous young woman who so rapturously sings the praises of the "Road of Anthracite." Miss - Snow was made by the society the plaintiff In a. mock trial for breach of promise against an unchiv - alrous defendant who testified that he was afflicted with temporary insanity when he proposed marriage to the plaintiff. The jury, with an utter disregard disregard for Miss Phoebe's feelings but with an evident desire to deal out even - handed justice, found the plaintiff guilty guilty and sentenced her to spend six months In Hoboken. The defendant and all his witnesses were found guilty guilty of insanity and sentenced to the Insane Insane asylum. Real estate in Dalton and the surrounding surrounding country is enjoying a verit able boom. Lots 100x200 that last year sold for $300. now bring $450, and are In constant demand. Dalton Is one of the prettiest towns in Northeastern Pennsylvania. It is supplied with ex cellent spring water, and an electric lighting plant will soon be Installed. There are six trains dally running in each direction, between Scranton and Dalton on the Lackawanna Railroad, and another Is expected to be added soon. Besides this method of quick transportation to Scranton, the resi dents of Dalton are forming great expectations expectations of the Improvements that will follow the completion of the Nortn Scranton Railway, which has purchased the franchises of the Dalton Street Railway company and expects to have its line finished In a year. Some of the handsomest homes In Northeastern Pennsylvania are to be found in Dalton and in its Immediate vicinity. One of the most Imposing residences is that of E. L. Fuller, who has expended more than $100,000 on his beautiful property between Dalton nd Lily Lake. Close by is tne at tractive home of C. S.

As will be seen in the above list, many or the summer residents of Dalton are prom - nentlv engaged in the business and nrofessinnal life of Scranton. where the management of their affairs calls them each day. The Lackawanna Railroad offers a cheap and conven - ent means of transportation between their homes and their offices, selling a ixty - trip monthly ticket for b.ii. These advantages make Dalton one f the pleasantest sites tor nomes any where In the vicinity or Scranton, which explains why there is such a boom in real estate there at the pres - nt time. : Douglas H.

(Respectfully Dedicated to Hon. J7. AT. Edwards, President National Eisteddfod Association of America.) I dreamt I heard a goldfinch trill his strains of sweetest lays Just like the lays the goldfinch trilled in Wales of former days; I also heard a black bird sing sweet songs of charming tales, Just like the black bird used to sing in merry little Wales. I dreamt I saw these pretty birds in yonder verdant neia Enjoy a fill of rarebits sweet from clover's richest seed; I saw them leave in joyous glee for other fertile dales, Just as they did in halcyon days In pretty little Wales. I dreamt I heard great Shelly's bird, the prince of merry larks.
