Hints dropped every few days at Democratic
national headquarters that Judge Parker will
take the stump, not only here, but in West Vir
ginia and Indiana, reflect the consciousness of
the Democratic managers that something must
.be done to put vitality and "ginger" into the
Parker canvass. Some strong voiced leader
"mast be found who will tell the voters frankly
and courageously what the Democratic party, as
now Jed and organized, really stands for. Some
body must go out and "fire the popular heart."
Somebody must inspirit and enlighten the Demo
cratic masses. But every hopeful i-Jmation
that Judge Parker win "swing around the cir
cle." unbosoming himself In "heart to heart"
-talks with an expectant public, brings forth a
prompt and positive denial. It Is. however, only
too apparent that some spokesman must be had.
If Judge Parker will not stand forth as bis own
champion, some substitute must be found. If
the Presidential candidate will not Gave the
situation, somo other Democrat must try to
As we said a week ago, it looks as if the
. Democratic party would have to turn in this
crisis from the vacillating and makeshift leader
of 1004 to the aggressive leader of 1896 and
1900. The labor which Alton B. Parker will not
undertake must be shifted to the shoulders of
William J. Bryan. The Hon. "Tom" Taggart
seems to think be has already succeeded in so

when Democratic enthusiasm is to be stirred
and Democratic principles are put on trial.
What sort of « crusade for "safety and san
ity" Mr. Bryan will conduct may be guessed
from the remarks he made a day or two ago at
a Democratic mass meeting in South Omaha.
In rousing popular fervor for the Democratic
nominees, he said among other things:
I shall not tell you that I was delighted with
the nomination at St. Louis. I opposed the nor
n of Parker because he did not stand tor

THE MAYOR'S uwßßi:
Major McClellan has acted with conmienrla-
Me^ompmess upon the complaint of the Civil
Service Reform Association against Park Com
missioner Bchmitt and th« Civil Service Com
missioners for violations of the law In the em
ployment of laborers In The Bronx. His sum
wary removal of all the officials concerned, who
are his own appointees, nio&t of them orig
inally selected as part of the Tammany polit
ical "scheme of administration, must be a great
shock* to the braves. The idea that the Civil
Service law U something to be obeyed rather
than evaded will strike them as new. It is a
wholesome lesson, and It is to bo hoped that it
will have a tonic effect on the whole municipal
Mayor McClellan seems willing to give Mur
phy a free hand to use the administration for
political purposes co far as the lnw allows.
nis continued toleration of Park Commissioner
Pallas indicates this. The letting of the park
fences for advertising was lv spirit as scanda
lous as anything done by the removed Park
Commissioner for The Bronx. One of the Tamm
any leaders for whom there was no available
office bad to be taken care of. and his share of
the booty was the fence, which he received at
a ridiculously low rate, compared with what
the city might have secured in open competi
tion. If it was settled that art was to be sacri
ficed to income. Art was sacriflced without
getting the- reasonable income. Nevertheless,
as no law was violated, the Mayor was quies
cent. But be evidently draws the line at direct
lawbreaklng. He has acted with decision, and
is entitled to credit. Mr. McCnoey has long
been regarded with disfavor by Civil Service
reformers as an expert sapper and miner for
subverting the law to the uses of politicians,
and his forcible retirement Is most welcome.
One of the strange things about the Low ad
ministration was his success while an employe
in the Civil Service office in hypnotizing some
of his superiors who were undoubtedly striv
ing sincerely to enforce the law and protect the
The Mayor, we are sorry to cay. dulls some
what the tine edge of his reputation for disin
terested zeal In the cause of good government
by his selection of a successor to Mr. McCooey.
The displaced president of the Civil Service
Commission was originally a McCarren man,
though wo believe he has tried to keep on good
terms with Tammany. The new president.
Bird S. Coler. is Murphy's Brooklyn deputy, the
leader of the anti-McCarren forces In the bor
ough. Even when punishing Infractions of the
law the Mayor does not lose sight of the value
of a $6,000 Job as a club In factional warfare.
Mr. Coler has not the slightest fitness for his
new office. When Controller he did all he could
to undermine the merit system. It Is a piiy the
Mayor did not live up to his own good Impulses
and, after making bis clean sweep, put the Civil
Service Commission en a really high plane.
David B. Hill, election thief, does not approve
President Roosevelt's policy in Panama. He
denounces it, before the Constitution Club of
Albany, as "lawlessness." He says the President
"repudiated the treaty of 181';." committed an
"act of war." "manifested a lawless habit of
mind" and demonstrated "his unntness to be
President," and insinuates that be has or had
"setae sympathies or ties" with the corrupt and
long defunct first Panama Canal Company. All
of which, of course, greatly pnlns the pure and
sensitive soul of Mr. Hill, and Inspires him to
urge the election of his own political protege
and pupil and chosen candidate as President In
Mr. Roosevelt's place.
It is not at all surprising. No piece of ef
frontery would be from the man whom "The
Brooklyn Eagle" aptly described as the "boM
devil" of one of the foulest conspiracies that
political scoundrelism ever formed. But let as
give the "head devil" his due. In this tirade
Mr. Hill has performed a public service. De
spite the clear and unmistakable record, read
and known of all men; despite the straightfor
ward statements of the President, of Mr. Hay,
of Mr. Hoot, and of others ; despite all that has
4}oen said and well 6aid upon the subject, there
was yet one thing lacking to the entire and pi '."
fect vindication of the President's Panama
policy. That one thing Mr. Bill has now sup
plied. Henceforth, if any one calls the Presi
dent's policy into question, he will be easily
answered. It will suffice to say that David
Bennett Hill, election thief, denounced it. That
will triumphantly complete Its vindication.
RELIGIOX IS FRAME
The breach between the French Republic and
the Vatican, with the probability that it will be
widened into complete abrogation of the Con
cordat, suggests some interesting Inquiries as
to the state of religion in Trance. Concerning
this many widely different theories are extant
There are those who represent France as a na
tion of ploua and devout Roman Catholics,
tyrannize*. ;jnd oppressed by a small faction «'t
Proteßtan'i6, Jews. Fr<--pmaeons and atheists,
though how that can be In a land ruled through
universal suffrage they do not make convincing
ly clear. Others profess to regard France as a
land of freethinkers aud atheists, almost devoid
of vital religious faith; a view no more sub
stantiated than the other. Between die two
extremes Uiere are other estimates, chietiy
colored by the prejudices or the desires of their
The fact is, religion In France lias long been —
at least upon the face of the ease— curiously im
plicated with politics, often in a contradictory
or paradoxical manner. Thus, many of the
most devout Catholics in France are foremost
on the 6lde of the republic against Che Vatican.
and are prepared la vote for the abrogation of
the Concordat, as they have already voted for
the secularization of schools and for the regu
lation or expulsion of the clerical congrega
tions. On the other hand, some of the leaders
of the Clerical party are men of only nominal
religious faith, or of none at all. There aro
earnest Cathoiica who wish the Church to be
a national one rather than under the control «>f
an Italian ecclesiastic. They will take, that is
to aay, tLolr faith but not their politics from
Home. There are also those who care nothing
for the Church, but who sco in it a good club
with which to strike the republic which they
hate. We must also bear in mind that the
Church and the Catholic population are radical
ly divided in allegiance and sympathy between
the monastic orders and the secular clergy.
If we look beyond these political aud artificial
lines, we shall lind France to be, on the whole,
a religious country. At any rate, it is not anti
religious. It varies much, according to parts.
Paris is assuredly not particularly pious. But
Brittany la as devout now as ever in its his
tory. Generally speaking, rural communities
are more deTOted to the church and to religion
than are the cities. Yet there are exceptions to
tbat rule, for tbe innumerable churches of Rouen
are crowded, while the scattered village chapels
of Champagne are deserted. Again, there are.
especially iv the country, many sincere Cath
olics who nave been driven from church at
tendance by the Injudicious preaching of BoUti*

cal priests. They have been told from the pul
pit that no man can be a good Catholic and at
the same time a republican. Now. they know
they are good republicans, aud they mean to
remain so. They also think they arc good Cath
olics, but since the priest says they are not, why
there is nothing to do but to stay away from
ronss, while at heart tbey remain as devoutly
religious as ever.
These and other conditions seem to strengthen
the conviction that one of the best things that
could happen to France, so far as her religious
interests are concerned, would be the complete
separation of church and state. Tbnt would, or
certainly should, take the rhtirch entirely out
of politics. A man would no longer be a cham
pion of tho church because he was opposed t >
the republic, nor would a loyal supporter of the
republic feel it necessarily incumbent upon him
to oppose the church. There would be a new
alignment of the people, or rather double align
ments. There would be Catholics and non-
Catholics, and republicans and non-republicans,
but there would be no necessary coincidence be
tween the two lines of demarcation. That such
a consummation would promote the growth of
true religion is not to be doubted.
OCT OF ITS ELEMKXT.
We are surprised arid disappointed by our
neighbor "The Times." On Saturday last ilm
journal charged that Mr. Cortelyou, chairman
of the Republican National Committee, wns
using his officially acquired knowledge of cor
poration secrets and his prospective official
power as engines for extorting money from per
sons who were opposod to President Roosevelt's
election. It recouuted what it called a con
crete instance of thin alleged U-vyiug of forced
contributions and said it was typical of other
\v t > think that "The Times" has been misled
into making these charges by some member
of tlie Democratic National Conuuittee. just
as It confessed it was misled by a member of
that committee into declaring that Mr. J. J.
Bill stood ready to spend half a million
dollar? to make Mr. Laraont Governor. We
have reason to behove that the Republican
campaign funds have been raised tins year
without pressure or promises, and with an un
common regard for the highest demands of
political ethics. If. however, any such cases as
"The Times" refers to have occurred and such
extortion has been practised, the definite facts
ou>;ht to be known. We have, therefore, asked
our contemporary in tho interests of public
morality to substantiate its charges, or at loa.«t
to tell on wh *m Mr. Cortelyou called demand
ing money, which, though a Democrat he paid
for fear of reprisals ou his business. We have
asked for something specific instead of the
mere assertion of an indefinite tale which
might easily be a mere figment of tbe Imagina
tion cf Mr. (iormau or of that other committee
man who, according to "The Times." has fooled
it before on the subject of campaign contribu
tions. You strangely enough, "The Times" neither
produces any reason for believing its most
«.-:icus charge against Mr. Cortelyou nor re
tracts that charge with the gtfme alacrity with
wh'.eh it withdrew its rumor about Mr. U ill and
Mr Lamont Instead, !t continues In vague and
general terms its attack upon Mr. C fielyoo,
apparently intent on making as much outcry as
ile for political purposes, without troubling
ltstlf about the truth of It? charges.
That is not the sort of thing we look for fr >m
'•Tlie Times." Aa an old itepublicau neighbor
it had our rwspect and. though BOOM yenrs a<o
it lapsed Into Democracy and experienced many
tudes, we have alwaya regarded tt as
livin.z np to the old standards of reputable J ur
nallsm. We should be sorry to feel that it had
acquired the smt-ati nal habit of circulating
recklesa or malicious attacks upon official and
personal honor which it has neither tho fact! to
confirm n>r the manliness to retract. "Th"
Times" has not merely made a political attack
upon Mr. Cortelyou. It has referred tr> what
it calls "concrete Instances" of gra\e mlscon
ducr on his part, and on the strength ct its
supposed knowledge of concrete facts asks an
uninformed publi-.- to pass a verdict of condem
nation on Mr. Cortelyuu and the President I*

The governments of those States which have
not yet organized a vigorous campaign against
tuberculosis may well imitate the example
which Maryland has set. Maryland Is not a
pioneer, It Is a recent recruit, but the report
of its special commission, Just printed, la a
model document To many executive and lej?ls
lative officials throughout the country It will
sfford suggestive revelations of duty, and of
ways and means of performing the same. The
medical and statistical data here collected may
not be to new to the wideawake practitioner,
because he haa become familiar therewith in
other ways. Still, in at least one particular the
procedure of the Maryland commission was
novel, if not unique. In connection with a pub
lic conference, held in Baltimore last January,
it arranged for an elaborate and comprehensive
exhibition, which remained open for several
days. The material thus made available for
Inspection was exceedingly varied. It had a
practical bearing on tenement house reform, mu
nicipal and State sanitation, nursing, articles
for the use of invalids, including Individual
cuspidors, and models and plans of a score of
hospitals and sauatorluins.
Not the least gratifying feature of tho report
is the recognition given to work done in New-
York City and State. An account Is given of the
provision for Incipient cases on Black well's Isl
and and advanced ones on North Brother Island,
and the prefatory remark Is made that this city
lias tho best municipal accommodations In Amer
ica. The report recommends that annual lect
ures be given to school teachers in Baltimore in
regard to tuberculosis, "similar to those now so
admirably conducted In New-York." The auti
splttlng ordinance of the metropolis naturally
receives hearty approval, lv that section of
the exhibition devoted to governmental sanita
tion, "the most extensive and complete repre
sentation was that of the New- York Health
"Department." Aside from the contributions
made by Baltimore, apparently the only exhibit
relative to tenements, factories and sweatshop.-*
came from this city. It embraced twenty plans
of model tenements, ninety photographs that
Illustrated the evils of imperfect ventilation and
overcrowding, and an Instructive set of statisti
cal chart.-'. This collection was prepared Jointly
by the New-York Tenement Hense Commission
and the Charity Organization Society. Models
of several private ami public eauatorlums In
the State were shown, and, In discussing the
curability of consumption, the commission sum
marizes the results attained by Dr. Trudeau in
Preventive measures are ranch the most ef
fective in the war against tuberculosis, but
remedial treatment is also necessary, and there
Is a growing disposition to provide It under
State auspices for persons of limited means.
That fact tends importance to an article In the
October number of "Outdoor Life'" by a New-
York physician. lie estimates that th- cost of
housing a patient at the State Institution opened
at Kay Brook last July is $1,000 or more. He
then describes a cottage which ho thinks -would
be equally serviceable for six or seven months,
which could be built for $1,200, and which would
accommodate naif a dozen or more persons. By
*"ay of experiment such a structure was erected
on an island in the Adirondack* a few months
•**>• and, it is possible to draw accurate financial
conclusions from the venture. Both the ac
count which is given in "Outdoor Life ana toe
suggestion that the plan there outline.l would
afford larger accommodation* for the s«ara<»
money than the brick sanatorium at Ray Brook
deserve careful attention In the Empire State
and in other parts of the country where institu
tions of that character have been projected.
The writer does not make it altogether clear
what ought to be done at the end of the warmer
nix mouths of too year. It Is suggested in un
editorial preface to his article that small brick
cottages might be necessary in winter for such
patients as could not then be dismissed as cured.
That course would reduce the economy of the
plan, of course, but to what extent is a question
requiring further computation.
Of course, if our opponents are not sincere in
their proposal to abolish tha system of a pro
tective tariff, there is no uss in arguing th*
matter at all, save by pointing out again that
if on one great issue they do not mean what
they say, it is hardly saf* to trust them on any
other issue. But if they ara sincere in this mat
ter, then their advent to power would mean do

and far reaching as that whioh w* saw tan
