A Washington special says: "There " is some talk cmong certain Pemocratlc senators about talking the Panama canal treaty to deatti. Gtwrman. and ahout half of the Democrats, irtcludinir Aloi gan, Blackburn, Carmack and Culberson, are so eager for a chance to hit President Roosevelt that they are willing to go any length in opposition to the treaty, even to the extent of presenting ratifttatibn by; unceasing speechmakingr.'? The same - dispatch makes the following interesting statement respecting .prevailing"" sentiment among the othor half of the Democratic . . senators: '-' "Of the remaining Democratic Senators hnit hiilf are undecided what would be coon Dartv policy, and the others (six or - ,ht in nin entertain the positive opin ". inn i hat onnos!tion to the canal would : ' be Wcldal and are determined to vote for the treaty as soon as s - hanre Rui ttiev can't get the chance as long as the Gorman coterie keeps up their fight with Jawbones for weapons, and Gorman and his squad wilt probably keep it up as long as they tnina.cney are gaining party advantage tnereDy. The method to be resorted to by the obstructionists was very clearly foreshadowed on Wednesday, when the Sen-i ate foreign relations committee took up h nnsini trotv for consideration fhnlrman McC'ullom hoped to make ' considerable progress, but Senator Morgan at once proceeded with a speech, and kept on speaking during the entire cession. When the time came to adjourn he moved that the next meeting of the committee be held on Wednesday of next week, at which time, he .announced, he "would be ready .tor continue his remarks." "The " committee, fcowever, decided to meet daily, and Mr. Morgan will nave, to talk dally if be expects to "talk the treaty to death." It' is not now expected that tne committee will be able to. report tHe treaty to tre Senate in less than ten days or two weeks, and Mr. Morgan may even be able to delay the matter for a month. He means to keep the treaty in committee as long as he possibly can the longer the better for the obstructionists, it being admitted by them that if ever a vote Is re-ichJ in the Senate the treaty will be ratified, with the aid of some eight or nine Southern Democratic senatprs who will respect the sentiment of the people of their States. Senator Morgan and hie followers evidently depend upon their ability to prevent a vote, being reached; in other words, talk the treaty to death. Friends cf the treaty admit that the obstructionists will in all probability be able to prevent action on the treaty for at least . three months. . and possibly a great deal longer. It must be admitted that this is not a pleasant outlook, but under existing conditions the more than two-thirds of the senators who desire to ratify the treaty are at the mercy of the-less than one-third obstructionists. That is In accordance with the Senate rules. In that august body it is con sidered "senatorial courtesy" for eighty-nine senators to permit. Ihe remaining senator to prevent action on any measure, however Important, If he sees tit to play the autocrat and "hold up" the business of the body. They call that "senatorial courttsy," but it certainly is misnomer ' The administration is. happily, not likely to change Its policy in consequence of a. minority hold-up in the Senate, The canal .treaty can be delayed in the Senate, but It cannot be defeated. Sooner or later the ,over-whc-Imlng Southern sentiment in favor of the canal will make itself fell on the Pemocratlc politicians who for partisan ends are threatening to del eat the treaty, or Indefinitely delay action on It. Senators like Morgan of Alabama nd Gorman of Maryland are Impervious to influences of any kind that are -BoMn-aceord with their own distorted vjws and prejudices, but there are Democratic senators who aie willing to represent and repect the views, and sentiments, and wishes of their constituents. Thy will make possible the ratification .-.f the canal treaty. 1 - Handel is again rousing spontaneous enthusiasm among the church; his "Messiah" still reigns , supretne among the lovers of oratorio. His mas slve, Impressive choruses and smooth. delightful arias are destined to live as long as any works now before the public s. The Hallelujah chorus has often been described as the greatest religious chorus known to musical literature, and the aria "I know that my Redeemer llveth" has not yet been-, excelled, so sauve and delightful are its Intervals, modulations and cadences. - Of the modern oratorios, "The Dream of Oerontiusr' by Pr. Blgar, Is by far the best, according to the verdict of both the critics and the dilettanti. But it will never take the place of the "Messiah," for it has not the latter's dramatic strength and passion or emo tional fervor. Dr. Elear may have a better command of pure aesthetic "ex pression, may be more of a master or light and shade, and of close reasoning: but, nevertheless, he Is not the .enormous genius that Handel was and cannot, like him, revel In vigor ana splendor, in marshaling grand resources 'and piling up sublime masses of sound. Handel Is always effective. and in; this resect Is unsurpassed. Board of Pardons than'. how exists, there. Governor Pennypacker, In his fearless and independent action In this case has! again demonstrated Jthat with all his faults, weaknesses and vanities, he also possesses excellent qualities. In his actlon'wlll also be seen powerful argument why he should re-, main In the executive office and defer his 'ambition to attain aseat"on?.the supreme court bench until he retires from the governorship in 1907. Safe theatres in the large cities ap pear to be the exception, rather than the rule, but the case will be emphatically reversed by the tlmethe iri- ipectors m tne severm ui me land are through with their investi gations. It, is highly creditable to the owners and managers of theatre build ings, that they are cordially . cooperat ing ' with 'the ;authorities. Greater safety will be the rule hereafter, espec ially if the cities enact the right kind of ordinances with reference to safety in the construction and management of places of public anuosement. Some Scranton councilmen are again ijijtrouble. , This time they are under arrest -on the charge' of perjury. The Municipal League . is the prosecutor. These prosecutions are an echo of the famous Dalton Railway bribery cases which some months ago caused such an upheaval In Scranton municipal circles. It seems that when the invest tlgatlon was in progress, certain mem bers of councils testified under oath to certain alleged facts. The charge now Is that they committed perjury. . It Is gratifying to know that the girls in the-telephone exchange of the old company, have toeen given a-substantial raise in wages. No class of our workers is more entitled to such consideration. THE WRIGHTS' AIRSHIP. Xhe reading public has probably been wondering why nothing more has been heard about the airship whose successful flight, lfi North "Carolina, was heralded about three weeks ago. All that was announced at the time . was that two brothers named Wright, of Dayton, Ohio, had been at work for months constructing an airship, in North Carolina, and had made a successful flight With it. which clearly demonstrated that the problem of aerial navigation had been solved by therfi. That was about all. For days afterwards It .was expected that further'' -experiments would be made, and the result announced, but nothing more was heard about the Wright brothers and their invention. A dispatch from Dayton, Ohio." published' yesterday, contained a public statement from the Wright brothers, in which they'assert that "the age of the flying machine has arrived." They state that immediately after having made the successful tests, on Dec. 17. in North" Carolina, they pack ed up their flying machine and return ed to their home In Ohio. The experi mental fliirhts in North Carolina are graphically described and the Inventors unqualifiedly declare that the machine was absolutely Controlled by the navi gator; that it was propelled against a Wind blowing more than twenty miles an hour, and was navigatedt the will of the operator. In closing the statement the Wright brothers say:, "From the beginning we' have employed en tirely new principles of control, and as all the experiments have been conduct ed at our own expense, without assistance from any individual or institution, we don't feel ready at present to give out any pictures or detailed descrip tions of the machine." That probably accounts for the fact that the Inventors went Into the wilds of North Carolina to make their first experimental trips. CONCERNING LIBEL LAWS. An attempt will be made In the New York legislature at its present session to secure an important modification of the present libel law of the State, and one of the proposed amendments Will provide that a person bringing suit for aliened damages will be required to give security for the costs in case the plaintiff loses the suit. Speaker Nixon of the" House of Representatives, in addressing that body last Wednesday on the subject of the proposed chlfnges In the -law, called attention to the large nurpber of suits commenced against newspapers solely for blackmailing purposes. 'He stated that publishers ; are put to large expense in the necessary preparation to-defend such suits, ana in many cases those who bring '.the suit, finding that there is no blackmail to be had, abandon them. "The object In bringing the suits," said Speaker Nixon, "was to put the publisher" to such expense, and, if possible, force a compromise. It Is only fair that security should be given in such cases for a reasonable amount of costs." Reasonable people will see the Justice In this proposition. Newspaper pub "I. Bufy My Dead.

At the verv dawn of the twentieth century ee how it lives! This moment it Is being performed before great audiences all over curope ana America. At each Christ H.Bnue me oratorio societies of the Jarg-e and even small cities find It the best medium of exploiting their talents and of entertaining large miscellaneous audiences with music of an appropriate character. Composed over two hundred years Ago, it still retains the power of appealing, to the finest feelings of the numan Dreast. It Is to-day, as it al ways nas been, since 1742, when first ung in Dublin, the best expression of me oratorio form of music. It Is dra mauc ana tun of big. broad effects. In mis respect It eclipses all other compo tltlons of its genere. w- observe a disposition in certain intellectual musical circles to speak paironuungiy of the "Messiah" and to aamn it with faint praise.. THe man tine entitled Masters of Music has Just printed a symposium on Handel's po sltlon as, a composer, and each writer ipeaks of the great musician in a very sneering , manner, alleging that his music is "mechanical," full of cut and Jrled modulations, and utterly lacking In the "stirrings of the inner spirit." Among a lot of "ultra- modern" writers of the moment , the old masters, with :he exception of Bach and Beethoven, re rapidly relegated to the limbo of )bllvIon.i These critics, make merry ver "Papa" Haydn, and they even- as-ume that Moxart is defunct Jn spirit is well as in the flesh. Notwithstanding the dictum of --this mnta of ultra moderns, the old classic romposeri continue- to touch the deep- In the Congressional Record of Tuesday,-Jan. 5, appears an alleged speech by Hon. Charles Dick of Ohio; which covers sixty pages of that publication. It seems that a few days previously Mr. Dick asked leave to print "a few-remarks" which he did not cure to deliver. There was no objection, and the result is the sixty-page production, ' overlng the following matters: "What the Republican party has done for the soldier," "Most liberal pension laws in the world," "The campaign for protection in Great Britain," "The experience of the United States shows free trade a losing policy." "Our prosperity's only peril the menace of Democratic victory." No doubt it ' is a great speech, but the trouble is that nobody will ever read it. Recently Allentowu purchased a site for a smallpox pest house on the Lehigh Mountain. Now the people living in the vicinity of the site are up In arms against' the peril and are threatening armed hostility if any attempt Is made to domicile smallpox patients at the pest house. to unjust, unfair and oppressive laws. like the notorious Pennypacker "rrttii-iler," passed by the, lat Pennsylvania legislature. A law that makes black mailing easy cannot possibly be defend ed in anv enlightened community. The present libel law in New York is not neaily as unjust or unfair to publishers as the Pennypacker "muzzier" act, but Governor Odell of -that State' is known to favW changes and modifications In the existing act which will make if incumbent upon prosecutors to give security for the payment of the costs' in case they lose or abandon the suits. That change, it i? believed, will put' an end to commencing- suits against pub-iishtrs for the purpose of forcing a "compromise" In other words, . being paid to abandon the suits, a course which publishers too frequently adopt as the least of two evils. President John Mitchell of the United Mine Workers .of America' has made the public statement that "the executive board will hereafter as it is doing now indorse the fights of ihe miners against reductions in the wage scales when these reductions break the yearly contracts." Public sentiment will indorse resistance by the Mine Workers to any vlolatibn of contracts. It seems- almost incredible,,' however, that' the operators in any part of the ceal fields would be guilty of such a suicidal policy as the violation of any contract entered into with their employees, lis.

The President is doing his best to be impartial between them, but they make it very difficult. At last the force of the almost unprecedented, cold wave has been broken iind the temperature is again endurable. The Wyoming Valley has not experienced an equally severe cold wave in many years. BRIEF COMMENT GOVERNOR AND PARDON BOARD. For the fifth time since the Board of Fardons came into existence, thirty years ago, a governor has refused to Issue "a pardon recommended by the Board of Pardons. On Wednesday, Governor Pennypacker Hied his reasons for refusing to pardon Alphonso Cutaiar, convicted of murder, and in whose case the death penalty had air ready been commuted to Imprisonment' for life. It will be admitted that the reasons given by the governor for declining to act upon the- recomrflenda-tion of the Board of Pardons are substantial and abundant. The first Instance of a governor disregarding the Board of Pardons occurred when Governor Hoyt refused clemency to a notorious bank burglar named Hope of Philadelphia, and compelled him to serve out the term of his sentence. Governor Paulson refused to pardon a bank wrecker named Work, also of Philadelphia, and he, also, served out the full term-of his sentence. Governor Hastings took similar action in the case of two notorious Philadelphia ballot box stuffers. in whose behalf the most powerful political pressure was brought to bear on the Board of Pardons, and to which that body yielded. Governor Hastings was warmly applauded by all friends of honest elections when he refused to set free the brace of ballot txjx stuffers whom the Philadelphia machine, for some reason, co'iild not save from conviction. That the murderer, whom' Governor Pennypacker has refused to set at liberty, has a political "pull" Is evidenced by .the fact that; among the signers pn the petition are the names of twenty-two members of the last legislature. one United States senator and one ex-. mayor of Philadelphia. When a vile criminal, such as Governor-Penny-packer shows Cutaiar' to be. can com jmand the backing 'of such an array of politicians, it is evident that a good deal more. backbonj is. needed In the When we're frozen with the cold. And the merry sleigh bells chime. How we wish that once again 'Twas "the good old summer time." But when it comes around. It makes us mad clear through To have some Idiot grin and say "Is It hot enough for you?" Thg skeleton of Grover Cleveland seems to have disturbed te diners at the Mc-Clellan feast.

Every- time that David Bennett Hill comes, down from off h'.s solitary roost he says or does something that makes his friends wish he had stayed there. perintendent and chief engineer carries In his hands the welfare of the buldlng's population-of from 4.000 to 8,(00 persons. In executive skill he must direct .the oper-ation-of a itvass of machinery which runs elevators, furnishes light and heat. ana. In many Instances, cooled air, and produces, electricity for the manifold uses of tenants, and he is sole commander of an army of engineers, porters, assistants, elevator men and others, who must be keyed to the very acme of discipline. The superintendent and chief engineer grows into his position. He attains the supreme command after long attention to duty. - He must prove his stability; his absolute mastery of the varied duties with which he is Intrusted. The owners oi a flve-miilton dollar property wll not risk chance -of seeing 4t ruined in- the -hands of. an Inexperienced or unreliable superintendent. - Skyscrapers are so-costly that few sin gle capitalists can own one. The ownership is lodged usually in banks, trust companies - or real estate corporations which have been organized for the purpose. The day of the individual capitalist sitting In his own "building and drecjlng the operaton of his property Is past In the metropolis. Only a few instances of the single ownership, with the owner active upon the premises, are to be found in the domain of the modern skyscraper. Owners of modern skyscrapers place them in the hands of renting agents even before the steel frame skeleton hai been set up. The agents rent the offices from the plans. Several prominent real estate firms whose names- are known through the financial district derive the best part of their affluent incomes from this branch of the business.

In the public domain there ar still unappropriated S80.STs.8O7 acres of surveyed lands, and 591. 978.169 acres of unsurveyed lands, .or a total of more than 970.955.000 acres. A great many tracts in this Immense area, of course, will always remain uncultivated and unsettled, but it has been estimated that when the contemplated system of Irrigation shall be put into working order so much good land will be opened that a population as large as the whole nation's present population could And room there to thrive prosperously and contentedly. Rapid strides are now being, mads In the developing of the publio domain. The excitement and uproar of former pioneer days are absent In this work, but the process Is marked and very effective.
