A Builders' Edition. The builders edition of The Republican issued this morning is what it is represented as being. It deals exclusively with the work of our architects, and builders, no attempt having been made to cover other fields of local industry. The purpose of the edition is to convey to the public an adequate conception of the building progress made in Scranton during the past year. In the twenty pages devoted to the architects and builders will be found sketches of the most progressive of them, handsome cuts of a number of the city's "finest and most costly structures, together with facts and figures tending to illustrate the growth of the building industry in this community.

That there has been great progress 'along this line during the past few monrhs; is abundantly shown in today's issue of The Republican. In another column will "be found a table which reveals that during the year 1904 there were issued 938 building permits for structures of the value of whereas up to December. 1 of this year 1,052 permits for buildings of $2,019,570 value were issued. The great gain during eleven months oi 1905 over the whole of last year demonstrates plainer than anything else could that Scranton is entitled to rank among the up to date and progressive cities, so far as advancement along the building line is Xor is this boom in building a mere spasm, for there is every indication that it is to be continued into next year on an increasing scale. Architects and builders are even now, busy planning for structures that are to go up in 1906, and in a few years more the class to which this edition is mainly dedicated, will have made.

The Republican predicts, this city one of great architectural beauty. It already has many handsome buildings, but there is room for many more, some of which are now assuming shape in the busy brain of architect and builder. The builders' edition of The Republican is an innovation in Scranton jaurnalism, no other paper having devoted a special edition exclusively, to builders and architects, but the departure, it seems to us, is fully warranted by, the facts set forth in this number, and which will, we feel confident, prove of great Interest to the Scranton public. Russia May Go Bankrupt. The belief that a great financial crash in Russia is pending has gained foothold in the world.

It is anticipated in St. and Moscow, as well as in the monetary circles of Paris, Berlin, London, Amsterdam, Hamburg and. New. York. The revolutionists' In Russia, as is wellkhown, are directing a part of their attack against the government's credit, their aim being to bankrupt tne nation and then repudiate all debts, believing that it is foreigners who would suffer most as a consequence of such a pol lor.

Russia has been a great borrowing nation, but most of her securities are held abroad. France, it is said, has put more of her capital' into Russia in one form and another, than have the people of any other country. The sum Frenchmen have at stake is estimated at not less than two billion dollars. In Russian railroads alone they have five hundred million dollars invested, Germans are snared for two hundred and forty millions, Belgians for one hundred and sixty millions, and Englishmen for one hundred and twenty millions. There are, therefore, good reasons why the world at large should not desire, the Russian revolutionists to succeed, for their aim is not only the overthrow of "the government, but the repudiation of debts, and their triumph would mean that the people of other nations must suffer great financial loss.

Against Capital Punishment. is now known that a terrible bungling was made of the Job of hanging Mrs. Rogers, the Vermont Woman who murdered her husband, and the people of that state are very much exercised about It. As a matter of fact, many people in other states feel indignant also. The infliction of the death penalty should be skillfully, performed, or not performed at all.

But as for that, we are not certain but that the time has come for the aboil tion of capital punishment altogether. Great opposition to it has developed, and there are frequent miscarriages of Justice, even in our own state, because Juries no longer like to Impose the death sentence. More murderers would certainly have the extreme penalty dealt out to them if It were life Imprisonment instead of ejfccutldn. It is true that from the early ages it has been decreed that he who sheds man's blood should have his blood shed by man, but since the rule no longer holds good, except in exceptional cases, might it not as well be abandoned altogether? The Chinese Demand. The demands presented by the Am erican merchants, Chinese and boycott committee in Canton as condi tion for terminating the boycott of American goods are not as a whole acceptable to this country.

The United States government is willing so, to amend the Chinese exclusion laws as 'to remove the features which are most objectionable to the better class of the Chinese, and will, no doubt comply with most of the demands hailing from Canton! But there are two or three of the propositions, to which the American people will object. One if them is the demand that laborers should be admitted by the United States government to the Hawaiian Islands and the Philippine Islands, provided that the legislature or local authorities of such islands, afe willing to admit them." The policy of the United States is to exclude the Chinese coolies from all of its territory and that policy is not likely to be in the least changed. Another proposition that will invite opposition is that any Chinese residents of the United States shall be permitted to bring over his wife and family, and such of his father's family as are minors to' reside with him. This would be opening a way for a lot of young Celestials to get into the country and that it would be taken advantage of to the utmost limit no one with any knowledge of the Chinese character can doubt for a minute. There are also other features of the Canton agreement that are not to the liking of bur people, i although fair minded Americans are, we believe, desirous that all unreasonable restrictions against the Chinese should be The better class of them, such as business men, students, travelers and' professional men should be admitted on the same conditions as are the subjects of other nations, but the policy of this government toward the laboring class must remain unaltered, boycott or no boycott.

All Classes' Represented. The Fifty ninth congress is com posed of men representing a great variety of trades and professions, but of course the lawyers predominate. Of the latter there are two hundred and ten, according to a "Washington correspondent who has been studying the new congressional directory. Next to the lawyers come the bank ers, of whom there are fifteen, manu facturers and farmers are represented by thirteen members," and the editors and manufacturers by eleven each. Five of the members are dealers in or manufacturers of lumber, three are blacksmiths by trade and two are house builders.

Three are'connected with the insurance business, and three are oil operators. The stone cutters are represented by one member, as are also those of the following occupations: Carriage painters, tanners, printers, hotel keepers, apple growers, telegraph operators, milliners, lecturers, railroad stenographers, tinners, nurseymen, railroad and section hands. John Sharp Williams is down as a Representative Katm of California admits that he belongs to the actor class. There is. one gunner's mate, two doctors, a sponger of clothes, one bookkeeper, three stockmen, two coal operators, one trainman, a miner, three teachers, a mechanical engineer and three who are connected with the mining industry.

Fifty two of the members are not classified as to occupation, but the correspondent says that the majority of them are lawyers who no longer pursue their profession, having degenerated into mere politicians. Will Find His Own Place. What to do with our ex presidents was at one time a question frequently agitated, but of late years the gentlemen who have retired from that high office have got along very well without help from any one but themselves. Harrison went back to the practice of his profession and raked in some nice fat fees before he died. Grover Cleveland retired from the office with a competence and has been taking it easy most of the time since.

There is, therefore, no need of worrying about him, for he is abundantly able to take care of himself. As to the present occupant of the White House, is only necessary to state that he is the most energetic and active of 'them all and no one doubts his ability to keep on earning money and having a good time when he "retires to' private life. Still some people are worrying their minds about what shall be done with, him when he is through serving as president. One suggestion and a good one at that is that he be chosen to represent the state of New York in the United States senate. When we term this a good suggestion we mean that it is a good one for the Empire State.

It would be most creditable to that great commonwealth to be represented in the upper house by a man like Theodore Roosevelt, but there is no' certainty that he would accept the place. The somewhat prevalent belief is that wliefl his term of office expires he will accept the presidency of a great college rather thin any political office. one be come of Mr. Roosevelt. He will, find a place to fill and will fill it like a man no matter whether it be a college president's chair or a seat In the United States Too Much Oenerosity.

i Of course Uncle Sam is abundantly able, to make good the deficit of $14, 572,584 in the postofnee department, but would nevertheless be' better pleased if that branch of the govern ment were self sustaining. That it might be made such is easy to detect, if one carefully', studies the late annual report of Postmaster General Cortel you. All that is necessary to make our postal system self supporting Is the exercise of a little more economy a little less generosity. For Instance it is conceded by those who have studied the subject carefully that the department pays too much to the railroads for transportation of the mails. This item alone amounted last year to $39,384,916.

The service ought to have been performed for a great deal less, and a big saving might be effected in this particular. Probably if the railroads had received $30, 000,000 they would have been amply paid for their services, and some way ought to be found to compel them to do the work for a fair compensation. Then there is another plain indication of too much generosity on the part of the department to be found in the postmaster general's report. He figures out that more than twelve and one half per cent of all the matter sent by mail last year, reckoned by tons, went at a cost to the department of $19,822,000. It is thus made plain fnat the postofBce' department is already more than self sustaining if it were not imposed upon.

Pay the railroads less for transporting the mails and restrict the matter that goes free within the narrowest reasonable limits and there will be no more deficits. It ought to be done. It may be pleasant to navigate the great lakes at certain seasons of the year, but the occupation is not with out its hazards. This is shown by the fact that during the season just closed a total of two hundred and fifteen lives were lost. Of these hundred and sixteen were drowned off the ships during three great storms that raged In the fall, and ninety nine were lost by falling overboard.

But the death rate is not so large on the great lakes every year. Last year it was only forty nine, but that was the smallest record of any Representative Landis of Indiana; has introduced a bill In 'the' house providing for federal supervision of life insurance. The measure makes it compulsory upon insurance companies doing business in the District of Columbia, in the territories and in the insular possessions, to submit annual reports concerning all their acts to the government. In this way it is thought all the big companies can be brought under subjection without raising the question whether insurance is inter state commerce or not. The scheme Is certainly an ingenious one.

Secretary of the Navy Bonaparte has attempted to defend his suggestion for destroying the old frigate Constitu tion, but fails to do so successfully. The American people have a great deal of respect for the venerable relic and want it. preserved, but Mr. Bonaparte sentiment which they possess. He doubtless means well, but is too practical minded to see things as do his more imaginative fellow citizens.

Before starting out a Christmas shopping expedition look oer the advertising columns of The Republican for pointers. The leading merchants of the city, those who believe in small profits and quick sales, and who carry the most up to date stocks, use this paper to Invite the patronage of the public. The merchant who feels that he is not getting his nhare of the holiday trade should Increase his advertising space In The Republican. It Is a daily visitor at the homes of the best buyers in the city, arid they are the ones the wise tradesman goes after in pref erence to all others. Governor Hoch of Kansas asserts with great vehemence that before he would sign a warrant for the execution of a man or woman he would resign his office.

We' have, a suspicion that there are some people in his state who almost wish he had to do one or the other. An English physician says that bridge keeps women from going crazy and is therefore good for them. Some of the fair sex who do not encourage the game will probably retort that this particular doctor needs to play whist himself. BORN. HUGHES In Scranton, Dec 10, 1905, to Mr.

and Mrs. W. A. Hughes of 1025 Ridge a boy and girl. Looking Ahead.

"I've often wondered," said the thoughtful man, "why they throw old shoes and slippers after a bridal couple, but I think I see the idea now." "Yes?" asked the other. "Yes. I suppose the idea Is that they'll come in handy for spanking purposes in the' future." Philadelphia Press, However, there, is no need for any to bother his head about what will 1 SJt'Cff (CT(V (Rf I oKliMrAa 1 HI 1 3. ssjgass3saai aw5si A Scranton mother was mourning the other day about the bad water In New Haven where her son as at college. "It seems very strange," said "that the water is not fit to drink.

Why don't some Scranton capitalist go down there and build some water works?" One of the items of expense in Yale college is drinking water. Not every one knows that the students have to buy every glass of water that they consume, and the annual cost averages fifty a week. Such a thing as drinking the town water supply is not thought of, but it seems rather astonishing, that in this day of the world, in one of the greatest colleges on earth, in the United States, the home of ad vancement, and in Connecticut, the home of inventions, the students have to buy their drinking' water as they might far from civilization when on some Oriental Journey. Not only' is the Rev. J.

H. Odell taken on his trip around the world at the expense of one parishioner, but another pays his full salary during his absence, and the salary of Rev. Mr. Crane, the supply, is also paid at the same rate during his stay in this pulpit. FUNERAL OF MRS.

BEDFORD. Tribute to Memory of Woman who Had Many Friends. (Contributed.) The funeral services of Mrs. Mary P. widow of Dr.

Andrew Bedford of Waverly, were held on Tuesday, December 5. For the past ten years most of her winters had been spent in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Edward F. Leighton of this city, and it was there among. children, grandchildren and friends that the last words were spoken.

The Rev. G. Parr sons Nichols, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, officiated, and her personal friends were the honorary bearers. Mrs. Bedford was born in 1816 in Waterbury, and was the daughter of Major Orlando and Olivia Porter, with ancestors of heroic mold and gentle breeding.

In her early childhood her parents removed to Wilkes Barre, where, when eighteen years of age, she was married to John M. Burtis and afterward removed to Tunkhannock. Her daughter, Mary Burtis, widow of Samuel A. Maitchmore, D. of Philadelphia, survives her, also the three children of her daughter, Emily Burtis Yost.

At the age of sixteen years she united with the Presbyterian church of Wilkes Barre, under the preaching of Dr. Nicholas Murray, and was always a devout and earnest Christian. For the past half century her. membership was with the First Presbyterian church of Scranton. About fifty years ago she was married to Dr.

Andrew Bedford, one of the best known men and early physicians of Northern Pennsylvania, and will long be mourned by her stepsons, Sterling, Andrew, Benjamin and George B. Her place in the home of her daughter, Harriet Bedford. Leighton, must always be a vacant one, for she had long been the center of admiring affection and devotion in the household. Mrs. Bedford was a woman of rare culture and qualities of mind, heart and person, and she preserved through her eighty nine years the clearness of judgment, remarkable poise, personal attraction and above all her supreme confidence in the love and wisdom of the heavenly father.

It has been truly said of her that "she has left behind to her children and neighbors a precious heritage of example in her long years of dignity and righteous living. Such as she are the foundation women whose virtues have made possible the prosperity of this land. Theirs is the only true chart, and as we follow it we shall rise or fall." Binghamton Press. CRUSHED BENEATH ROCK. Miner Met Death and Laborer Was Fatally Injured.

Crushed beneath a massive fall of rock from the roof of the chamber in which they were working, Frank Smith, a miner aged twenty two years, who resided with his family at five hundred and. one East Market street, was killed, and his laborer, Frank Roche, twlrfy five years old, of the same address, was so seriously injured that it is thought at the Lackawanna hospital where both were taken, that his injuries will prove fatal. Both men were working in their chamber in the Richmond colliery, No. 3, when without the slightest warning, the roof fell, burying the men beneath it. When aid reached them, Smith was unconscious, and he died five minutes after being taken to the hospital.

Roche was injured internally besides suffering from lacerations of the face and head. He was taken immediately to the Lackawanna hospital. Smith, who was killed, leaves a wife and three children. BREACH OF PROMISE CASE. Will Be Tried Before Judge A.

About eight hundred sports from Scranton and Wilkes Barre attended one of the best fights ever pulled off in this part of the state last night. The battle took place at Wilkes Barre and was the best conducted affair of its kind seen in these parts in many a day, The main event was between Harry Ruhlin, of this city, and young Lossong, of Old Forge. The battle lasted only three rounds, owing to the condition 'of the men neither man being in very good shape to continue the fight after the way in which they hammered each other in the two preceding rounds.

At the end of the third round the police stepped Into the. ring and told the men to to their corners as it was all off. The crowd was very much disappointed as the battle, as long as it lasted, was full of action. Ruhlin was very much put ou by the action of the police as he had a shade the best of it and expected to put. his man away if the battle was allowed to go the limit, six rounds.

They'had three good four round bouts before the main event which were very fine for youngsters. Johnny Rice, of Old Forge, and Jack O'Boyle, of Scranton, went on for four rounds, but O'Boyle quit in the third, owing to an Injured hand. The second between young Hazy, of Wilkes Barre, and Percy Griffiths, of Plymouth, went the limit. The third was the best of the lot being a case of fight from start to finish and was a very good draw. This was between Thomas Morrisey, of Plymouth, and Japk Williams, of this city.

Patsey Burke was referee of all the bouts and was entirely satisfactory. Mark Assler acted as time keeper. FLORENCE MISSION DONATIONS. The management of the Florence mission wish to acknowledge with thanks the donations for November as follows: Mr. W.
