ILLUMINATING THE "TWILIGHT LAND."
A passage In the President's address at the
closing session of the iv»nf*jY > ne*» of Governors
and others at Washington on Friday was
. eaaadrj )»*Tlinont la the imaodiau* topics and
interests of that gathering «nd to the general
<JlFCU«;ssan of federal and Ptato powers which
. has been in progress for the lust few years —we
ynicht Indeed s;iy ever since th*- foundation of
■•• Union, for it would 1^ difficult to find a
•.ingle quadrennium in our history in which Back
discussion has not to some, extent prevailed.
Jloeognizlng the historic fact that discrimina
tion between national and Flat* authority 1* not
invariably exact, and that a called "twilight
land" has existed and Ftill exists between the
«-on<-ed'-<l powers of the federal and state gov
ernments, tbe President in terse and convincing
phrases explained his policy and his aim con
cerning that zone of uncertainty.
"■>. . "My .primary aim." he said, "has been to pro
•"vido tome effective popular sovereign. . . .
• **I d«> not wish to k»*op this 'twilight land* one
"of large and vaaaja boundaries. ... I am
"'trying to find out where oue or the other can
"act, so that there ehall always be nome sover
•V'ign power. . . . My concern Is not with
•Mi,- academic side of the question : 1 deal with
4 th<» matter practically from tbe standpoint of;
•true popular interest; and therefore my de
*vire is to employ indifferently either the prin
z ••ciple of states' rights or the principle of na
tional sovereignty, whichever in a given case
••will tost conserve the needs of the people."
Ho referred, in thus speaking, particularly to
l««cislaiive and administrative acts for the con
trol of <-orporallon:», since it is in connection
therewith that inwt of the recent and current
discussion has arisen* but bis remarks are ob
viously applicable with equal fitness to legisla
tion or administration on any subject.
From cither the practical or the academic
jm.ii 1 of view we must regard bis position as
impregnable. It cannot for a moment In main
tained'that the Constitution contemplated and
Intended ;i;i- existence of a '•twilight land," a
, neutral zone l>e»wceu federal and Kate powers
Jn which neither nation nor ptjite should be sov
ereign, and where individuals should be bee
* from th- restraints ot any law. The Constitu-
I Ma, as BMJai as Nature, abhors a vacuum, lloth
•^Irrosd <-.i".!nj'i:oni>i and strict const ruetioulst
''■ibUEt' agree'- tiiat wherever the line between the
two authorities may be drawn, it is to be def- 1
ir>it<»lv drawn, and — which Is the point of chief
Importance — it is a line, in the geometrical in
terpretation of the term, having length but not
breadth, so that everything must be on one
side or the other of it. There is no possible
place for ii No Man's- Land In constitutional
legislation and administration any nyjrc than
there is along' an international boundary, line.
Granted that the line in question ha? not yet
been at all points accurately surveyed and
marked, nothing could be more commendable
than for the President, M be professes to have
heen doing, to try to find where the line is. or
where it should be. so that everywhere some
popular sovereign, either the nation or the state,
shall prevail. He is not concerned with mere
academic abstractions, although, as we have
■sen, from the purely academic point of view
bis contentions ate abundantly maintained. The
practical point of view is that from which it
appears that there must everywhere be an effi
cient piviTmmnt. ample to control for the gen
eral welfare every individual and every corpora
tion and to do every necessary public work.
In many cases, probably in the vast majority,
the line Of demarcation between the two powers
is constitutionally defined. Wherever it is not,
because ef the development of. circumstances
and conditions unforeseen a century and a
quarter ago. the President's rule is instinct with j
common sense: When- the work can best be
done by the state, let it be done by the slate;
where it can best be done by the nation, let it
be .l<>ne by tbe nation. In any event, in every j
case, there must be some sovereign authority.
A TAFT CONVENTION.
Coder the terms of the call for the Repab
li<-an National C«Vventlpn,V yesterday was the
lust day on which delegates could be legally
chosen. Bach slate, territory and insular de
pendency has sion- ■elected its allotted quota
and t lie roll is closed. It ha? not been possible^
however, to obtain complete returns from Texas,
cloven districts in that state having made no
definite reports. Dp to the time of going to
press The Tribune's list of delegates-elect con
tained the name? of 936 out of DSO delegates.
Of these 531 — tO more, than I majority—
were committed by instructions, resolutions of
indorsement or preference or by public declara
tions to the support of Secretary Taft.
It has been The Tribune's aim to show by
•weekly tabulations the progress made In the
election of delegates to the national convention.
Our first table appeared on February ,"., mid
since then we have followed, with every en
deavor to be exact and impartial, the action
taken by the various state, territorial, depend
ency and district convention!?. In apportioning
the delegates among the different candidates we
have been careful to classify as committed only
those delegates w;ho received a definite mandate
of some sort from their constituents. This rule
was waived **nly In the ease of seven delegates
Senator l/»Jg»' and Colonel Bigney. in Massa
chusetts; Governor Fort and State Senator
Ackerman, in New Jersey, and Representative
Andrus, William L. "Ward and William Barnes.
In this state, all of whom, though uninstructed,
bad publicly indicated their purpose to vote
for Mr. Tafr. In Pennsylvania sixty-four dis
trict delegates were elected at primaries with
out Instructions, but on the general understand
ing that they would support Senator Knox.
They were therefore credited to Mr. Knox.
Bat four of them have recently indicated that
they will vote for other candidates, and they
have had to be deducted from the Kn<'X column.
In every other instance the delegates assigned
to any candidate arc bound to him by some ex
pression of opinion "on the part of the voters
whom they represent.
It vHi be Been that Secretary Tnft already
has ■ safe majority, defiuitely pledged. This
outcome Was anticipated by Tlio Tribune on
May r.. when it announced that tfiere tras no
merit in pveacTTfng an attitude of uncertainty
when uncertainty had erased to exist. W> paid
tliea : • . .
it is our conviction, based on th« facts which
we have, published and on probabilities bo strong:
as to be scarcely distinguishable, from facts; that
the choice of the Republican convention for
President of th« United States lias now hp*>n
determined and that the nomination of Mr. Taft.
has b<^n foreordained If nothing: more than
what Bf-ems to be already in sight should occur
between this date and June 16 our belief is that
Mr. Taft would enter the convention with a
secure majority of the delegates behind him and
b*» nominated on the first ballot — probably by
not fewer than 520 votes out of 9SO. But the
tide is setting so strongly In his favor that th"
natural process of accretion is likely to increase
his majority beyond the dimensions now dearly
This forecast has been fulfilled with good
measure. To-day's table gives Mr. Taft 531 def
initely committed delegates. He is pretty sure,
moreover, to get the votes of at least on^-third
of the uncommitted. One hundred and ninety
seven are so classified. Of these the Secretary
of War will in all probability secure four of si*
in Maine, fouV of eight in New Hampshire, four
of eight in Rhode Island, two of sly in Dela
ware, six of eighteen in Now Jersey, two of two
In Maryland, mx of Fix in Virginia, eight of
sixteen in South Carolina, sixteen of twenty
f-i-x In Georgia, ten of twenty in Mississippi,
four of four in lowa and two of four in Mis
souri. Adding these sixty-eight votes to his
minimum total, b<> will enter the convention
with 509 votes. Twenty-two delegates are still
to be heard from.
A word as to contests. Many of those do not
involve Presidential preferences, but are only
made to hold or obtain control of state, or dis
trict party machinery. We ran find only ninety
four bora fide contoslg whose settlement may
affect the vote for President in the convention.
Taft delegates have a prima facie title in sixty
oi;rht of these cases and anti-Taft or uncommit
ted delegates in twenty-six. In some states,
like Ijouisiana, Texas. Mississippi and Alabama,
two or throe rival factions are fighting for rec
ognition. Even if the contests should bo settled
on a half-and-half basis Mr. Taft's strength in
the convention would be only slightly dimin
ished. He will not owe his nomination to an
inflated Southern vote. On the contrary, his
support comes from all sections of tbe Union
and its universality demonstrates that ho is thft
choke for President of a large majority of the
Tlio work which the Society for Psychical Re
search lias been doing at Lily Dab; will win
over niany of its critics fust as surely as it will
alienate some friends. According to report, one
of Dr. James H> slop's assistants has succeeded
in exposing the brazen gang of frauds who hold
Kpirirualistle s€ances at Lily Dale, a camp near
Buffalo. The investigator, a professional magi
cian named Carrington, spent a fortnight in this
dale of dvi*« under an assumed name and also
under a thick disguise of simple credulity, lie
found a host of famous clairvoyants and trance
mediums getting rich quickly by playing stale
old tricks of legerdemain before large audi
ence* of respectable citizens who paid from .51
to $5 for the privilege of being gloriously hum
bugged. At a slate writing seance Mr. Carring
ton saw a famous Washington medium "calmly
"unfold the messages, read them and write the
"replies on a slate concealed in his lap." Other
distinguished fakers were caught using their
own bauds and feet in manipulating "magic,
trumpets," "spirit zithers," "phosphorescent
writing" and similar marvels. Not the faintest
trace of any genuine clairvoyance or other
psychical mystery could be detected in the en
tire community. To be made a complete suc
cess, Mr. Carrington's revelations need only be
turned over to the police la the form of affi
davits and used as a means of landing the
swindlers in jail.
Flaw people will bo surprised at this exposure,
which has bad scores of equally distinguished
predecessors. But there is In the ' incident aooi«
NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBCNE, ST'XDAY. MAY IT, 1908.
r spoci.",l cans? for gratification, nt least poten
tially. Mr. Carrington's adventurft seems to in
dicate what numerous wary citizens Lave
doubted— namely, the Bras resolution of the So
ciety for Psychical Research not to believe mys
teries unless compelled to by the facts. This
resolution alone, if courageously adhered to in
spite of ■ natural eagerness to reach positive
results, justifies the existence of the organisa
tion: Whether <>r not there be spooks and tele
pathists. there is always the jrront task of sys
tematically stamping out knaves who thrive off
the griefs and yearnings of mankind. For
many reasons, not merely financial, the e/es of
the credulous ought to be opened to tlie true
nature of professional seers and mystery ped
lor*. The faithful discbarge of this public duty
will eventually bring to light whatever un
usual mental powers there may possibly be. One
of tbe surest, though slowest, ways of discov
ering what is true is to eliminate what Is false.
Hut even if the outcome should be the discredit
ing of all spiritualistic phenomena, the society
w..niri still have rendered a valuable service In
overthrowing the latter-day magicians • and
witches whose hocue-pbeus keeps alive worn
out superstitions and wrings hard earned dol
lars from simpleton*.
fXDIVtDI M. RIGHTS.
Samuel Gompers, president or the American
Federation "I" Labor, made an excellent argu
ment for the rigbi of tbe workingman t« work
for whom he pleases and the rigbi of tho em
ployer to employ whom ho plonses without foar
of boycott before tbe Senate Committee en Ju
diciary yesterday. Mr. Gompers had no fench
intention. In fact, he would probably dony that
he had done so. He would say thit he appeared
to plead (or the boycott and to set tho judiciary
right in the matter of injunctions. Neverthe
less, be s.-tid :
N-> man h*s a property right or vested interest,
in my patronage or flint ..f my fellow?. I can
bestow it or withhold if.
•No man baa a property ripht or vested in
terest In my work or that of ray follows." the
nou union worker may answer. '"I can. bestow
it or withhold it."
•No man lias a property right or vested in
terest in the goods I buy to sell." may be said
by tbe boycotted business man. "i can sell or
refuse to sell."
Mr. Grompers further said
They [th« American laborers] arc not going to
be driven out of existence by r»**inj? forced to
surrender the. privilege of doing tho lawful things
that other people arc privileged to do and thf*
exercise of individual rights that have been rec
ognized as lawful since afagna Charta.
Business men who have been and are being
boycotted, men who have lost employment be
cause they would not at the demand of Mr.
Goinpers surrender the exercise of individual
rights that hare been recognized as lawful since
Magna Charta, will thank Mr. Gompers for this.
They couldn't have stated their own case more
CHANGING HUM AS X ATI' RE.
A favorite idea of certain philosophers and
imaginative writers is about to be realized in
Southern California, if press dispatches have
accurately represented the programme of Dr.
I>eone Landone, who, we are assured. "bns
studied sociology all over the world," and who
lias just purchased a lovely rural estate near
Los Angeles, whore he plans to experiment wltli
human beings as Luther Burbank has done •witli
plants. The meagre reports thus far at hand
leave much in obscurity, and even arouse a Bus
picion that either the much travelled sociologist
or else his chronicler does not know whereof be
speaks. l»r. Landone la quoted as snying that
his methods are parallel to BurbaDk's: but bow
they can be *vo are unable to fancy. The "plant
wizard"' operates under the guidance of the T.>o
Vrif>s mutation theory; roughly speaking, no
does nothing more than Io raise an enormous
number of plants of a given variety and to se
lect therefrom for crossing tbe few peculiar
growths whose characteristics he desire? to eni
phasize. Thus, in order to produce a certain
curious berry more than twenty million vines
were thrown away. Now. if Dr. T A andoiie is to
emulate Mr. Burbank he will have to open a
boarding bouse about twice as large and pop
ulous as New York City, and be must wait an
flr*ou or two for the desired results.
But the next sentence iv the report clearly
refutes the alleged parallelism between Burbank
and Landonefsm, for tho human nature labor.'
tory is reputedly going to start operations with
twelve children. The mystery of th" new pro'
ess deepens as we read that, the sociologist hopes
to reconstruct brain cells. As no sam? man will
try to remodel anything whoso structure he does
not understand at least roughly, the natural in
ference from this report is that Dr. Landone has
discovered the make-up of brain cells. This is
startling, inasmuch as all prominent physiolo
gists and psychologists freely admit that the.
sum total of scientific research to date has not
proved a fraction as much about the finer struct
ure and functional behavior of brain cells as
Mr. Perdval T/owell has demonstrated about
But Dr. Landone'a making discovery and
his unrevealed laboratory methods do Dot inter
est us as much as does his ulterior purpose.
The sociologist evidently wants to transform
human nature. This is the arch mystery. Why
should human nature he revised? And, it" it has
to be, why go off into the country to do th •
trick? If there is one fact on which psycholo
gists, biologists, sociologists and political reform
ers are thoroughly agreed, it is that the apparent
defects of human nature are really due to .1
badly ordered environment. Theoretically, Hi
grooves of life would be well greased if the ele
ments were whipped into obedience so as 1.1
supply all present human wants and prevent all
evil Impulses, or if human wants and impulses
were no toned down that no man could find fault
with things as they me Rut. our California
genius will never bring about either of tbe-Sii
happy conditions. lie is not trying t<> make m°n
fit the real world, nor yet to make the real
world fit men. Ho is planning to raise children
Hinons the artificialities of a sequester?;!,
strangely managed California garden. He may
develop a mathematical prodigy, a contortionist.
a strong man. a boy who can wiggle his cars and
a girl without day dreams; but will these labora
tory creatures be altogether happy, and will
they be able to live, anywhere else than on the
Landoue farm? Whatever miracles the sociolo
gist who has studied on Staten Island, in Nov.".
Zembla and iv Tibet may work, we shall still
believe that human nature. In its world-wide, un
relenting efforts to prevent disease, oppression.
and poverty in all their forms, is working out Its
own salvation In the best way.
TESTING THE MONORAIL.
The test which the Interborongh-Metropolitan
purposes to make of the monorail system of
rapid transit with a short, line of that sort from
Bartow across Tellium. Bay Park to City bland
may exercise an important Influence upon trac
tion development in this city. Not a few stu
dents Of the rapid transit question are coming
to believe that the monorail, if It is perfected
and proves entirely practicable, is likely to fur
nish the true Holution of the problem of provid
ing rapid transit to the outlying parts of the
city and of building up its suburban sections.
They argue that subways are too expensive to
serve this purpose, as it will l>e practicable to op
erate them only where traffic is heavy, and that
if the city trusts to subways for distributing its
population the present congested condition, is
likely to continue and the development of the
ami imal boroughs to be long postponed. Tbe ad
vantages of the monorail, it is contended, are its
great cheapness of/construction and the high speed
which can be, maintained upon it. Thus it may
be operated through sparsely aetUed eoaimunl
ties. It can carry passengers a l"tig distance
for I u-ccnt fnrc. and it can transport them
quickly to and from work. Moreover, while ■>"
overhead type of railroad. it is largfty free from
the drawbacks of the present elevated railroads,
for its operation is practically nols«»l«8 and its
structure is so light that it docs not darken the
streets in which it is erected.
The, type, of monorail to be tested by the Inter
borough is «n American invention which wag "O
exhibition last year at the Jamestown exposi
tion. The car operates on a single, rail under
neath it and is held in place by a g»*ii rail at
the top, which also serves to transmit the elec
tric power. Another type of monorail is in ■OC'
cessful operation abroad, one road about six
miles long having beeu running nt DQawtldarl
for several years. in the cage of the German
monorail the car is suspended from the single
rail overhead. A road of this sort is being built
in Berlin, where- its builders are endeavoring
to demonstrate the possibility of operating su<'h
i railway on the principal business thorough
fares of Berlin-such as the I'otsdanier Btraaae,
for instance— without injury to tho appearance
of the street. They arc putting up a handsome
structure 50 light that it casts little shadow,
nn.l the running of the cars will be noiseless.
Both types of the monorail deserve consideration
here, especially as it appears to bo a difficult
task to get capita] to build subways, even whore
there is promise of heavy traffic.
One of the most important general elections in
the history of Japan was held on Friday, but it
is calmly announced that the result of it will not
be published for a week. Obviously election
nights in Japan are very different from those to
which we are accustomed on Park Row.
In many ways the popularity and usefulness
of the American Museum of Natural History
have increased in the last few year?. Not the
l^ast valuable improvement made In its equip
ment is the employment of an instructor to
answer tho questions of juvenile as well a*
adult visitors. The attractiveness of the insti
tution is thus materially enhanced. Dr. Rumpus
deserves a hearty vote of thanks for the inno
The severe punishment of the director of a
Russian prison and a number of his subordi
nates for cruel treatment of prisoners is an in
dication of better things in a land -where such
improvement is sorely needed.
Tradesmen in Jersey dty take the palm for
conservatism. They are organizing widespread
opposition to low fares on the new transit lines
of that city for fear that people will all mine
over to New York to do business, to the neglect
of home industries. Really, that betrays a lack
of self-confidence which we did not expect to
discover in that enterprising community. We
rather looked for a demand for the lowest pos
sible fares, in order to induce New Yorkers t<> go
over there to do their shopping.
The sincere flattery of imitation has been paid
many a time to Walter A. Wyckoff, the sociol
ogist, v. ho died at Princeton last Friday night,
but, like most imitations, those modelled after
his methods have generally fallen far short of
the model. Professor WyckofTs fame rests not
upon any strikingly original theory or con
structive research, but rather upon a thorough
going; sincere investigation, at first hand, of the
conditions under which unskilled laborers strug
gle along in this country. Countless students
before him had dipped into the great stream of
life, but few had the endurance', courage and
scientific zeal to pound its depths and struggle
in, its hidden currents. Since "The Workers"
appeared the power of example has stimulated a
small army of persons to repeat Professor

for workingmen and all who are sincerely Inter
ested in them, most of these slumming; parties!

sorely chafed the heel of fart and sent the latter

dilettantisms the aftermath of •■'The Worker?"
has been good, for Professor WyckofTs discov
