The G;:;'an n J ottier governments demar.i tjsfl r.' ' h-est qualifications of their arpo!"''' School for prospective consuls ground the ambitious young men In a whole range of subjects peculiar to the calling, and In some of the general educational Institutions special courses are arranged for those anxious to enter the consular department , The result Is showiv. In the way In which the In terests ot citizens and business men are taken care of abroad. It la ad mitted by German manufacturers that a large part of their success In the export trad ta due to the valuable as sistance rendered ' by the consuls of that Country. The United States has been blind to these opportunities. She has permitted the service to run along In a haphazard way. But the awak ening Is coming. J - " " A WORD TO THE GRADUATES. And now farewell to'the schooldays t -1 the books, but greeting to the real t 'vMea of life to the prospect in wLich each of ""the ; graaDatea -.inust rrre out Ws own, war to that summit cf -access to which all as'plre..;, Tou young mn who-faca theirorld r ni your own individual future, to you te prospect should be encouraging, i Tour minds have been trained to take i en Intelligent part In the problems that, le before you.-; Too are among the few j who, have been favored with the excel. il:nt advantage Ot the higher form of e ' jeatlon. ' ; The world expects! more from you than from those whose minds 'have not been sufficiently trained to 'r : i'ze all there la In life and all thaf -rect living mtBjna.--rMC:c fy- , The world calls to-day not only for 't'e skilled artisan, the learned physl- t. the expert legal practitioner. In 1 a I ,-ger sense It calls for the Meal cltt- j ' -i. .. ;v ' : ; ' . ' '"' I'?ver waa there greater need Tor the 'r'.M kind of cltlsenshlp,- We have j ! - J much of late of the wrong kind. .Y.e have been- made alck at heart by the revelations of fraud and selfishness ji d moral obliquity- generally. The 1 b tokening has shown that rascality is j I if no means confined, to the ignorant : It r.a been found in the high aa well ;t In the low. In the rich as wH as 1 3a the comparatively poor. But above i it all there rise the men who have come I from the fiery ordeal unscathed. The ; world Jooka upon them In profound ad-! ml ration, s Their coffers may not be i f.Ued with j ill-gotten gain, but they irave been able to stand before' their fellowmen in the sublimity of clear consciences. - ' Behind the present movement toward regeneration stand these men whom the prospect of gain by hidden ways cannot swerve fromthelr honest course. They stand like the cedars of Lebanon ebove the common herd. Whether in Ugh station or In low station, in public or In private life, tbey are the men in whom we must place our hope. Toung men, each of you haa been trained ta know what rood cltlsenshlp means. Each , can be a power for good in the community. Ton will be looked upon aa leader Tour example la bound to have a potent Influ-. ern e upon y6ur fellowmen. By virtue of "your school training you should be aUe to rise above, the common level, ' in the forefront where you will be seenJ r.d your course will be observed. The community calls upon you to take the lead In civic righteousness, to demand that the precloua ballot be freed from the grasp of Its despollers, to dignify public office. If you take such interest, your school training will not have been In vain, so far as the-community is concerned. , i - i Good cltlienshlp Is the most urgent need of to-day, as It will be so long as honor Is the basis of good government The esteemed News Is mistaken when ft states that the Record has taken up he railroad end Of the two cent fare discussion. The Record has done nothing of the sort It has explained the situation as It Is t present. The courts will be called upon to dedda the question from the point of view of the public at well. as of the-railroads, t; There -ere two sides to this question as there e re to most others. ' The side of the railroads cannot be lost In the antl-corporatlon hue and cry. The problem must be solved In reason, and thit is Just how the courts are going to solve it. If the courts find that the act Is not confiscatory and Is constitutional, that Is all there will the cneptlon. The public will get the benefit of the two cent law. CONSULAR IMPROVEMENT., The consular service of the United Etates has been a reproach. We have heard much of Its Inefficiency as compared with the service of other coun tries. It has, been pointed out ; that exports might be greatly Increased If ness ability ' and all - around fitness i'oma of the stories brought bank by travelers and investigators are highly C .-oredltable to , the system under v f Ich consuls tieve been appointed Tl ?t system was founded upon the oM t;r!'B idia. It 1s a relic ot that time w l n congressmen were more engaged Si t tending to the clamoring of their r r rtituents .for, official appointment i' v-i in attending to the affairs of i latlon. The civil service, worked a yn r.derful change. Step by step the 1 : lence ot congressmen in placing f . rnment employees was taken away , - 1 appointments were made as the n sit of competitive examination. The i sular service remained among the ressman's perquisites. Now this t is to be taken from him A consular reform bill was passed l y the last Congress, and while it Is i t a comprehensive as It should 1 .,;. been, it is a large step in ad a. Unfler its provisions the first r inatlon of applicants for consular 'nn was held a few months ago, ;!,e form of examination has Just i ma de public.

None of the reputable newspapers of the North have done anything of the kind. They have only, criticised the management for announcing the opening of the exposition before there was anything to exhibit, The rush will, come later and everything win be for ratten.---. : ''" ' ALIEN UNDESIRABLES. ' : The NaHonal Uberal Immigration League, organised for the proper regulation and better distribution of immigration, has Just sent out a brief summary of the work accomplished and the questions with which the League is at present occupied. The membership, by the way, is made up of some ot the most eminent men of the country. While the Record cannot agree with every feature of the program advo cated by the League, It does heartily agree with that portion of It which alms at the enforcement of a drastlo policy against those who abuse the hospitality of thta country. In this connection the circular says: "We are making efforts , to secure the deportation of members of the Black Hand and of criminals of lt races. As the bible says, Te ahall put the evil from amongst you.' " We believe that Instead of being held In our prisons as a burden to the community, all new arrivals who become criminals should be deported, as Is now done with those who become a publto charge." The Record has for several years been urging this very point It would be an excellent solution of the Immigration problem if our Inspectors could pick out the desirables from the nnde-sirablee. But that cannot be done, - AA educational test mitht in a measure shut out the moBt ignorant but some of the most ignorant re likely to be the most lawabldlnf . and 'Industrious. A heavy head tax might keep out the most ; poverty retrlcken 1 ivt poverty does not always mean wvY.e, 'furthermore. It Is Impossible to say from an Inspection of the Immigrant whether he Is criminally Inclined That -is a tendency that must be' observed from experience with the Immigrant and tt Is the only way.. . , t- We know that a large number of those who accept our hospitality are more or less of the degenerate type, Their flrjrt thought after landing Is to arm themselves with revolvers and stilettos, ' They use these weapons upon the least provocation. They have little regard for the value of human life or for the laws of the country. Our courts are burdened with this class ot criminals, "and the . communities In which they congregate are put' to heavy expense in the matter of taxation. The Idea ot deporting an Immi grant who commits serious crimes without such provocation as will stand as an adequate defense, Instead of allowing hlra to remain in this country as a menace and supporting him In hi Imprisonment seems to be the best possible solution of the alien criminal problem. The possibility of deportation should act aa a deterrent against the commission' ot crime by those wh desire to remain here and follow up the opportunities ot employment and American freedom. -''i" ' ;' ficranton taxpayers having defeated the million dollar bond Issue for pav ing, we natives win continue telling the rest Of the world that they have the most, progressive city on the ,fac of the earth. And the Scranton newspapers will fall over themselves a polo-tiling for the argument advanced In favor of the loan that Scranton is far behind most of the other cities of the State in the matter of paving. Well after all, blow and bluster are what count. ' , ' ",' The graduates are happy In the pos session ' of the . sheepskin.

Scrari ton mine, caused by an explosion of gaa calls to mind the lack of Interest manifested' In this country In Increasing the facilities for rescue work. Ex plosions are among the most prolific causes ot death In the anthracite and bituminous collieries, and it there were means of entering a mine and going Into the midst of the afterdamp, Immediately after such an accident, many lives could be saved. How often one reads that rescue work was delayed tor hours until the ventilating apparatus could -be set In order or until the deadly after effects ot the. explosion had vanished. When rescuers are finally enabled to enter the mines they find In very , many Instances that death waa not caused by the explosion but by suffocation from the afterdamp. While the brave fellow workmen stood helplessly about y the shaft, on the surface, the lives Of the imprisoned men were slowly ebbing aw ay. After a long period of inactivity the government recently decided to make a series of experiments, and preparations are now being made to conduct them In the Pittsburg region. The effect ot various kinds, of explosives In setting off gas are to be ascertained, and de-vices for equipping rescuersare to be tried. There Is no doubt that the knowledge gained will be Invaluable In this hazardous occupation.
