AS TO DEMOCRACY'S APPOIfTTMENTS
Tharles If. Crane of Chicago, treasurer of the
AUGUST 16, 1912 1 Democratic campaign fund this year, is the man
who was named minister to China by Taft in
Julv of 11)09 and recalled in Octoler of the same
vear because he had talked indiscreetlv. He was
recalled, virtually discharged, just as he was
leaving for the Orient. Crane is a Chicago cap
italist, and the sincerity of his devotion to any
cause may le measured by the fact tlvit he was
( lie of the chief contributors to the Koosevelt
fund this year, the story being current that he
"dug upv not only for the campaign in Illinois,
hut in Pennsylvania as well.
After the Chicago convention, Ir. Crane, it
will 1m remembered, made a hasty exit in the
direction of Baltimore, and when next seen he
had moved into the Democratic camp. With
that brand of political astuteness which consists
of waiting until a winner is in sight and then
jumping into the band-wagon and grabbing a
front seat, Crane hesitated until Wilson was
chosen by the BourlMHis, and then hotfeioted it
for the Wilson tally-ho. In three years he
has leen a Taft man, a Roosevelt man and a Wil
son man. He deiesn't need money, and political
preferment alone would hardly pay adequate
dividends on his cash investment in presidential
candidates. What other explanation of Crane's
political conversions can there be than that, they
are dictated by disappointment, malice and de
sire for revenge on Taft? Incidentally, general
opinion seems, to be that Taft did the proper
thing when he separated Mr. Crane from his dip
lomatic job three years ago.
Hawaii county apparently is determined to
get at the bottom of the Lyman scandal. Ly
man's friends say he is innocent, and if he is, the
whole territory will be glad to see him cleared.
If he is notj the whole territory is interested in
the fight to be made for clean government and
efficiency of public officers.
A Pennsylvania congressman has been found
guilty of spending too much money for his job.
It's getting so a respectable briber isn't treated
witlfany more deference than a common crook.
The Hon. C. II. Dickey celebrate his seven
tieth birthday by sending to the Star-Bulletin a
check for ten dollars for the Duke Kahanamoku
fund. That's a good way to celebrate.
