PARKER'S i:\ri.A V.I 770 •
Kvtr gjjjpe Jtsdge Parker's name came up far
d'scusiioc as a Presidential possibility wo have
endeavored to treat him with toe highest per
•*onal respect. Whon we havi- not done so 11 has
been or.:y because his own words and actions
showed that be was not entitled to retract, but
only to reprobation and contempt Our Impulse
and purpose, so far ns n<* wiii permit, is now to
leave him in peace to tind such consolation n>
do can for M» defeat. But such an address .-is
that whicli be Issued to the Damocrats of the
nation on Wednesday calbj for attention aud
condemnatiou.
It is not merely wea^ and undignified, but b
positive Ln«uit to the American people. It sug
gests, moreover, i desire to revive now that be
hap nothing to iose by it. the slanders upon the
President and Mr. Cortelyou which he sought to
evade in the last hours of the campaign. Judge
Parker charges that Republican devotion to pro
tection ie not devotion to a policy in the belief
that It promotes the general welfare, but be
cause the protected interest enn be made to put
money into political campaigns. It ha? before
been charged that business interests supported
the Republican party because of its protective
policy, nut Judge Parker distinctly charges that
the Republican party supports the protective
policy simply to use it a* an Instrument of
blackmailing and extortion. He speaks of the
Republican party as one "that ha« grown so cor
rupt that it will gladly enter into partnership
"with trusts to secure money for election pur
"poses." If this partnership has been formed, it
must have been formed by Mr. Ortelyou with
the knowledge and consent of the President.
Both have denied that there wa? any such part
nership or that any favors had been received
which put the party under any obligation to do
anything but promote to the best of its ability
the general welfare. Judge Parker, in effect, re
new« his discredited campaign accusation. We
leave him to ponder on the decency of that
course after his disavowal of a few days ago.
How perfectly preposterous ie Judge Parker's
insinuation that he was defeated by money:
How preposterous is his charge that the office
holders were an Influential factor, following
"the example s\t lor them by the members of
'the President's Cabinet In devoting their time
"and services to the party"". As we have before
now shown, stump speaking of Cabinet officers
is not only proper, but commendable, and hns
regularly been indulged in by administrations
of both parties for many years. The Judge's
unmannerly rjing reveals a pettiness character
istic of the provincial, not to say peanut, poli
tician rather than of a broadmlnded states
man. Cau a plurality of 500,000 in one State he
bought? The country was swept by an enor
mous flood of Republican ballots. The tide was
as high In undisputed States, where no money
was needed, as in the doubtful ones, where both
sides strained every nerve. In those State? th<;
Democrats had as much money 38 the Republi
cans. While politicians of each party were
planning for a close vote, the people took the
matter into their own hands and gave utterly
unexpected pluralities. To say that vote?
enough were bought or in any way manipulated
by officeholders or by any factitious Influence
to carry Pennsylvania by 500.000, Ohio by 200,
000, Illinois by 223,000,' Michigan by 180,000,
California by 100,000, New-York by 170.000 and
sweep Missouri away from the "Solid South" Is
Simply to talk nonsense. It is practically a
charge that the whole American electorate is
corrupt. It Is not an Indictment of the Republi
can party, but of the whole people, and Judge
Parker should have read hi* Burke to too good
purpose to indulge in such childishness.
OVB OF A. KTXD.
A young man was arrested yesterday nud
fined Vi by a masistrate for refusir.g to ehlft
his position on the back platform of a streetcar
co that passengers could get on and 01$ without
hindrance, and for using unseemly language
when told to move by a detective who mirac
ulously happened to be present. Tbe evidence
in this case eeems strong, but if It had ail been
a mistake and the defendant had proved himself
to be a perfect Lord rhesterfleld— which, by the
way. Lord Chesterfield was far from being— the
fact would have remained that the things of
which he was accused ar« things that occur
daily all over the city.
No object is more familiar to New-Yorkers
than the unmannerly cub who flnd« his pleasure
In obstructing a car platform aad is always
ready to answer h remonstrance with a stream
of impudence. We are not referring to persons
who stand on the. platforms because they can
not get Inside and tire In a measure excusable,
under our system of tolerating abuses, for tha
discomforts which they create and Fhare. The
real offenders are those who prefer to stand on
the platform" for various bad reasons— perhaps
because the.y want to smoke in defiance of the
rule?, or practise ihe repul j iv« devices of the
"masher." or indulge tbe ruffian's instinctive
longing to he generally obnoxious. Whatever
their special motive may be, such pt-rsons are
on abominalile nuisance which ought to bf»
abated, and might be. if the streetcar conductors
whose duty jt is to defend the decencies of life
within their Jurisdiction would firmly exercise
their lawful authority.
A chief cause for the persistence of such evils
Is that many of the conductors have little or no
sympathy with afflicted passengers and are in
disposed to ri»!i'jk« conduct which is kindred to
their own. A resident of London who is here
on a visit v. as tilling friends the other day of a
case in poiur. He got into a streetcar, sat down
and began to read a paper. A few minutes later
he sras much surprised at being punched in the
rib«. and, looking up, Inquired what was wanted.
"You know well enough what I want," said the
conductor: "I want your fare." "Well, why
didn't you ask for it?" "Because I thought yo - :
"wouldn't care to have the rett of the passim
"gers know that you were trying to beat the
"company," answered the conductor as he leered
around the crt !;i expectation of applause from
some fellow blackguard. The visitor from Lon
don, ho chances to be a social philosopher,
thoMght that inch p. thing would never happen
there, but told his friends that he bad observed
qu«»cr doings in all parts of the world, and had
no particular desire to complain of a now va
riety.
That wn< an amiable way of looking at the
matter, but there is no good reason why the peo
ple of New-York should continue to be patient
ander such afflictions. The experience related, If
uncommon, was not of an extreme type. In
civilities quite as gross are constantly commit
ted by streetcar conductors. The etook answer
Is that good breeding is not a commodity which
can bo purchased at the current rate Of wages.
But that is n wearisome excuse. The manager*
arc aUf to make their employe*. In a *orvico
which it- frankly tcjtopwledjed to be hard and
vexatious, do those things which are SUBpusefl

l POWERFUL NAVY.
The >'!\v-.lcrsry, whioli v.its lHtinchcd at
Quincy. Mass.. yesterday, l« the fifth nnd last
battleship of bpr class to be Ml afloat. That
Rt&gn in"; "no history of wcl a vessel asoally

tion iflll iii-obnMy be required for her ootnpl»i
pa. It In no: irnreasonable to hope that she
and Lor sisters will be ready for ihHr trials
early in 1906.
This das* of vessels occupies a position Inter
inediat'e between t lio heavily armored cruisers,
among wliicl) are the Cclora-Io and the West
Virginia, and the battleships of vh" Cdhnect!
eut '-las!;. Th<> Ncw-Jerney -vvill displace 15,000
ton?, when finished and the Connfcticut 10,000,
while dtp displacement of the Colorado is 14.
500. Another significant characteristic of th**
re*se] which went down th* v. «>«; yesterday is
■ hat ihe ■• expected to develop a -speed of nine
teen knots, or on. • more than the leviathan
thor was launched at th«« Brooklyn yard a few
weeks ago. In that, rasped there is n second
point of r<>«f]j)b!!\nfp to the lleetfootefl Colorado.
When the momnors of all throe groups are
ready for service the Americas navy will hnv,>
eighteen of the best fljrhting ships in the world,
besides these already in commission.
Dispatches from Washington report that the
creneral board has recommended to Secretary
Morton a programme In which three new bat
tleships arc Included. Inasmuch as homoge
neity Is looked upon as hictaly advantageous,
the board has decided to advise adherence to
tho Connecticut type for the present. There tins
been some talk in Washington about 0 bat
tleship having a displacement of 15,000 tons
and mounting nothing smaller than guns of
8 or 10 inches calibre. The Idea may not have
been abandoned, but it is at least held in abey
ance. Should the Secretary of the Navy ap
prove the supc^stlon just made, and should
Congress provide the necessary mon^y at the
next session, the contracts might 'op let by mid
summer and actual -work begun- a few weeks
later. If the same progress Is made in con
struction that has been effected with the Con
necticut, the new battleships rnicht be com
pleted before the dose of 1908.
UK BOOL ROOM AyD frills.
Th" question ol schoolroom accomniodati.'n
is still a troublesome one. Multitudes of chil
dren are in part time classes, and many can
enjoy that modified benefit only through the
use of temporary and makeshift quarters. Ob
viously, the way to remedy the trouble is to
estimate as accurately as possible what the
school population of the various districts of the
city will be. pay. two years hence, and then to
begin— within the two years to finish— ■
sehoolhouse3 of sufficient capacity to contain it.
To start building now on the basis of present
needs is radically faulty, because when the
buildings now started are finished it will not be
to-day's needs they must meet, but the in
creased needs of that time two years home.
Meantime, while we have to be content with
crowded quarters and part time classes, it will
be a particularly good plan to devote such time
as the children have in school to the funda
mental and essential studies. Even if a child
can spend the whole day at school. It is doubt
ful If all of the fads which some call "the
new education" should be imposed upon him.
When he can be in school only half the day
such requirement seems Indeed an imposition in
the worst sense of the term. The notion that a
dabbling in "higher culture" can be a satisfac
tory substitute for a thorough grounding in the
traditional "three R's" is mischievous. Civics,
ethics, literary analysis, and what not, are
estimable studies. But it is a strange perver
sion of pedagogy to prefer them, In a common
school (where both, under present restrictions of
time, cannot bo had) to reading and writing,
and to the multiplication table.
From some points of view some of the new
methods pursued in teaching certain studios are
estimable enough. The university student in
philology, for example, may find profit and
delight in speaking of Julius Cassar as "Eoollua
Kaiser." and in reading that commander's
most famous campaign dispatch as "Waynee,
weetlee, weekee." But the average boy or girl
in grammar school, whose study of Latin is
chiefly to serve us an aid to tbe morb perfect
understanding and use of the vernacular, would
surely he more benefited in the use of a pro
nunciation thai would leave some indication of
relationship between the two languages. It
scarcely seems reasonable to expect a child to
recognize, for example, the derivation of "con
vene" from "con" and "wayneo." or of "rital"
from "weetab."
Those things might do, if the object of com
mon school education were to enable its re
cipients to htrariate in the. cultivation of tine
theories and }o split hairs over the definition of
ultimate truth. That, however, is not its object,
but rather, In the majority of capes, to enable
them to earn their livings and make a credita
ble way in the world, and in the minority of
cases to enable them to go on successfully to
higher grades of academic and professional
study. It cannot bo too confidently declared or
too strongly emphasized that the needs of both
the majority and the minority will he best
served by thorough Instruction first in the sim
ple and fundamental brandies of reading, writ
ing, arithmetic and tho like. This is always true
nud alwaya pertinent. It is doubry pertinent
and urgent at a tirae when school room is in
adequate and the hours of teaching are cut
short.
DUE CARE^TITU MACRIXEB.
Members of the Automobile Club of Amer
ica, as a nile, are Judicious in handling their
machines In the roadways, and it is to be
hoped that their caution will be imitated by
all v.-ho travel over our avenuet; and streets, It
is evident that a big increase will speedily take
place 111 the number of vehicles not drawn by
horses through our highways, and it is so easy
to send the carriages at a speed too creat for
the safety of the people who use the streets that
in various parts of the town it will be necessary
to set up more formidable restrictions. The
automobtio boom has already reached a fer
vency in vtrlotis countries that keeps the
manufactories hard at work in attempting to
supply t'i!* demand and encourages the build
ins of n>iw mil!» for the making of m<w ma
chines.
Th varieties of vehicles ore so numerous
and the style and pwiftness or the latest speci
men* ar* so Impressive and fascinating that
their manufacture is rapidly Incoming an im
portant branch of industrial development, in a
largo degree taking the place of the production
of bicycles. United States District Attorney
Burnett has begun legal proceedings la the case
'•I the ferry boat Texas, which plies between
Kast Twe!!t3-thlrd-*t., New-York, and Broad
way, Brooklyn, for iff using to transport nn
automobile across the river. This particular
machine was run by gasolene, and in order to
give a complete test of the law it was sent
across the East River. The gasolene «rpp!i,. ( i
the power which drove the machine on the
ferryboat, and also the power which was used
Id passing from the vessel to the shore. Under
the United States Statute -i.472, as amended
en February 20, ISM, the tec mast be eitin
•.•- _.i before t!i*> tnjtomobflt im t£teo on \h»
boat, and must not be relighted until the ma
