Is mighty bard to figure out what n

LANE SETS AN EXAMPLE,
John I-uno has net u good example
for those who are inclined to stop nnd
haggle over tinfortunnte features of
the local election result.
It Is most unfortunate Unit a lot of
persons parading In the gurb of civic
righteousness do most vicious nnd do
tcstlble things In the time of a crisis.
Hut wo can't havo everyone ierfect,
so the best thing and the only thing
for big, broad, progressive men, Is to
go forward lighting the fight for fair
play in politics, fair play In govern
ment, and forever increasing the pow
er of straightforwardness that Is
bound to win.
That is clearly the idea of Mr. Lane,
when be urges those who supported
his candidacy to Join him In workn,
for the general progress of tlio Clt
and Territory, and for strengthening
the Republican party.
Let us not forget that unpleasant
i the knifing of the I-ino Incident Is,
I-ane has advanced himself in the es
teem of the people and thoso who
knifed him nre In a class by them
selves on a ery much lower scale.
In the long run no one has any use,
for the men who nro bitter, soured
What the citizens of New York
State havo done to Iloosevelt cannot
bo fairly understood until the full tlo
tulls of the election results nro nt
On tlio surface of the brief cables,
It looks as if the people had said In
offect to Mr. Roosevelt, "We love you
for what you have done; we admire
your abilities uud courugo; but you
must remember that tlio American
people will not nllow anyone to be
come possessed of so much power
that lio can perpetuato u dictator
ship." That Is what they are saying to J.
Plerpont Morgan and his llnnnclnl as
sociates. That Is what they nre say
ing to the crooked bosses us well uh
the ones prompted by honest but nils-'
taken motives. So Iloosevelt Is get
ting only that which Is In store for
every man who gets too big for tlio
The same Idea Is expressed In the
term applied to James 0. Hlalun and
other great and powerful men bo
was toq great to bo President. Some
moyi, good men too, go so fur that the
leoplo becomo nfrald of them. Iloose
velt has reached that point with tlio
easterners. Whether this is true of
the West remains to be seen.
It is entirely possible that his de
feat by New York will be the slguul
for saddling the responsibility upon
Wall Street, and mako of iloosevelt a
greater hero than ever in tlio West,
and South. .
On the other hnnd It Is to bo noted
that both iloosevelt and Taft have
been defeated In their homo Stutes.
There are other leading Itepubllcans,
as La Folletto and his associates, who
have victories to their credit, and tlio
natural Inference Is that the people
support their brand of Republicanism
with more enthusiasm than the par
ticular Individual brand of thoso who
failed In their efforts.
No one will feol that the country
has suffered nny great damage by rea
son of Mr. Iloosevelt having tasted
the cup of defeat. He unquestionably
knows how to profit by It.
