THE Bf'RKE RESOLUTIOS.
It was. on th* whole, fortunate that the Re
pijhij. Nation.il Convention voted down the
: flunent to the report of tlie committee on
rules proposing a change in the basis of repre-
Fentation in national conventions. In the first
place the convention was n<>t prepared to t^k^
snap judgment <~>u *o vital an alteration in party
roles. Th** delegates bad not studied the ques
tion in all its -;«-•■!-. and the resolution ofi>red
by Mr. Burke, of Pennsylvania, and defeated,
l«oth iv The <oLumittee on resolutions and in the
convention, bore decided marks of ovorbaste
nnd unrii-eness. Mr. Burke rooms to have for
jrntT^n entirely, iii fr.imintr his prnpflasl to base
representation in national conventions on the
vote oast for Presidential electors, that In four
Fimes of the T'ni"!i -Colorado, Utah; Wyoming
and Idaho — women have the suffrage as \\«-ll as
men. and that under the terms ««f his resolution
£ practically double representation might be
friven to the Kates iv which women rote. That
would Je an unjust discrimination against the
other f<>rty-!wo states .-mil would Pore* the («>!:•
ticlans in less favored commonwealths to look
with •■' friendly eye on an extension «tf the suf
frage to women and '■■• other possible recruits Jo
the array of ixrters. Is Mr. Burke an advocate
in disguise of woman suffrage?
It was pertinently said by Governor Willson
of Kentucky and other speakers against the
Burke innovation that It would tend to make' the
[republican party more than ever a sectional
organisation. There is force iv this view, for
tbe hope of every party is to make converts in
hostile territory and to build Itself up in sec
tions held by the opposition. The idea of rep
resentation based on voting power is within
ilmlts a reasonable one, but It ignores the BeoBS-
of proselyting and makes no concessions to
; ••* complications of our intern of balances be
tween the states, as such, and the nation. The
principle of representation on the basis of vot
ing power <*an l>e applied only to » limited ex
t,.,,, aud it should !>c carefully ronsMersd
t-iru-e it must l>" accommodated to the overext«*n
fion of the suffrage In mow states as well as to
the restriction of the suffrage of others before
It is accepted as settled Republican policy.
The narrow margin by which the Burfceamend
ment km defeated proves, however, that the K<
publicans of the North sod West are thoroughly
dissatisnXl with the manner iii which the Ke
publicans af the <;«iif States are discharging
their obligations to the party. The Tribune has
repeatedly said that the Republican organiza
tion* In those ft&tej kavfi failed In their dut/
and that the accumulation of contests for seats
from the South has become a scandal. The Gulf
States are. In fart, heavily overrepresented in
Republican conventions. They cast a meagre
Republican vote and they should try to be a
modest and helpful Instead of a contentious and
demoralizing factor In Republican councils.
Above all. they should settle their quarrels at
home and submit to the rule of the majority,
after the will of the majority is clearly deter
mined. We take it that yesterday's vote is a
significant notice to the Republicans of the Far
South that unless they mend their ways and put
in operation some machinery to show clearly the
will of the majority the Republicans of the
rest of the country will see to it that perform
ances like the manufacture of nearly two hun
dred contests this year are ended. The Repub
lican leaders of the Gulf States ought # to realize
that the present basis of representation will not
he retained after 1912 if they do not mend their
ways and set their houses in order.
A DEPENDABLE PARTY.
Senator Lodge, in his speech to the Chicago
convention on assuming the post of permanent
chairman, laid proper stress on the policies
which the Republican party must accept to con
tinue its historic career as an organization
which has risen iv all emergencies to the needs
of the nation. Republicanism has always tri
umphed when it has stood boldly for progres
sive and liberal ideas, as when it combated
slavery -in the HO's, restored the Union in the
60"s. preserved our industrial system against
free trad.' attacks in the SO's and defended the
Integrity of the money standard in the !»o's. It
has won because it has shown positive convic
tions and the courage to carry them Into prac
tice. Now it has again the opportunity to prove
its devotion to progress by applying and extend
ing the policies which President Roosevelt's ad
ministration lias made convincing and conspic
The Democratic parly, said Mr. Lodge, asks
the youth of the country "to judge it by its
undiscovered future." Bui the Republican
party can point to a past of fruitful activity
and ask to i.<> lodged both by that and by Ita

present and the future. As the Senator well

THE PERMANENT ROLL.
The roll of the Republican National Conven
tion, as prepared by its committee on creden
tials and approved by the convention itself.
complet.iy confirms the canvass made by The
Tribune of the preferences of the delegates
elect. The credentials committee ratified the
lodgment of the national committee, and the
"national committee in deciding 223 contests
justified almost exactly The Tribune's fore
lasts. As we pointed out the other day. ihe
Tribune's table of May -J4 put at .".f, the num
ber of delegates who had been Instructed for
Mr. raft or who were elected by conventions
which had passed Taft resolutions of prefer

announced tlieir purpose to support Mr. Taft in

The many fictitious contests manufactured in
thr <Julf States collapsed when they wore sub
jected to critical elimination, and about half
of the irregular claimants discredited by the
national committee failed to appear before the
committee on credentials. So weak were the
cases of those v ho did. appear that no minority
report m tb.-ir behalf was attempted by the
representatives of the "allies." In the conven
tion Itself DO rollcall was necessary to ratify the
committee's audings. The Tribune takes satis
friction in the fact that it was not misled by the
fanciful claims of Southern contestants, and
that Its Impartial summary <»f the progress of
the Presidential canvass bus been fully sus
tained in the decision of contests by the bodies
legally autborteed to pass on them. We merely
tried to Inform our readers by analyzing the
situation fr^ni week to week without prejudice

77//: COI ER\ U>:\ T OF IKDIA.
The fiftieth anniversary of the Sepoy Mutiny
has just been commemorated, and now affairs
in India have suddenly become more disquieting
than at any other date since that tragic cata
clysm. In Bengal particularly there has arisen
something much like a reign of terror. We
hear of English women fearing to go upon the
street* lest they be lnsuh>d, if not assaulted, "f
the preaching of open sedition and of bomb
throwing and assassination. To cope with the
situation the Indian government Ims promul
gated two stringent decrees regulating the man
ufacture an<l sale of explosives and restricting
that liberty of the press which has been grossly
abused Into license. Viscount Motley maintains
mii outward serenity at the India Office, but It
is not to be doubted that a considerable measure
of itiiii.-ty prevails in London as well as at
Simla and < Calcutta.
A strong Illumination is thrown upon the sit
uation by Sir Bampfylde fuller In a letter 10
"The London Times" of recent date. There are
few men who can speak with th" authority of
s«. much knowledge and experience an he since
hie career as Lieutenant Governor of Lantern
Bengal and Assam. Perhaps we should discount
his utterances to some degree on account of
inevitable personal feeling, for he considers him
pelf to have been 111 used, sacrificed to popular
clamor fuid misrepresentation : and indeed his
state of mind toward the government which per
mitted him to be forced to resign his place is
suggested in the title which lie borrows from
Zola for his letter. "JTAccuse.* 1 Nevertheless,
his comments on Indian affairs must command

deplored seditious movements, instead of
etrongly condemning and suppressing them.
These nre the criticisms of n partisan -with
personal feeling, and It mny be that they are
exaggerated. We have not perceived In the
Indian government In I/ondon. Nt any rate, any
of the weakness and uncertainty which he
charges against that at Calcutta. But there
can be little doubt thnt if his description of the
government's course Is even approximately cor
rect, there Is In it an adequate explanation of
the rapid development of dnngerous sedition.
There is nothing more necessary in governing a
country like India than decision and firmness.
That does not necessarily mean, of course, des
potism. It mny mean precisely the contrary.
Sir Hampfylde Fuller observes with approval
that for the last half century (Jreat Britain baa
in schools and colleges been engendering and
fostering aspirations which are gradually re
storing to India its political self-respect, and
scope must be afforded to those aspirations, and
public opinion In India must be reckoned with
and respected M a growing force. But ail thH
must be done with courage and firmness, as the
doing of right because it Is right, and not as the
reluctant yielding of concessions through fear.
The problem of India Is in sheer magnitude
the greatest of its kind in the world to-day, and,
though It technically pertains exclusively to
(Jreat Britain, it commands the strong and prac
tical Interest of the whole world. A large de
gree of confidence Is generally felt In Viscount
Morley's ability and Inclination to apply to it
precisely those qualities which Sir Bampfylde
Fuller prescribes, and which the world, indeed,
recognizes ns essential to success. But entire
success will require the application of those
principles at Calcutta and at Simla us well as in
A SAMPLE STORY.
Our special correspondence from Washington
yesterday contained «n interesting refutation of
an abominable story concerning President Ca
brera of Guatemala which was recently widely
current and which 'f wined the basis for numer
ous severe criticisms and condemnations of that
ruler. The story was that when he received the
congratulations of the foreign ministers at
Guatemala City on his recovery from the in
juries Inflicted upon him by a would-be assassin
President Cabrera declared to his callers that
lie Intended to avenge himself not only upon the
actual conspirators against him but also upon
The Guatemalan government thereupon asked
the ministers to state for the sake of establish
ing the tnith whether any such Bavnge inten
tion was expressed. Without exception they de
clare that it was not. The German Minister,
dean of the corps, writes that Mr. Cabrera said
no such thing. The American Minister declare*
that he heard no such words. The Minister of
Salvador denounces the story as a vile falsifica
tion. The ministers of iireat Britain. Mexico,
France, Belgium, Chili and Peru all testify to
the same effect. The refutation of the story is
unanimous, from the most authoritative sources.
It is, of course, Impossible not to accept the
testimony of these ministers as conclusive
:i-:iinst the reports hitherto aiiouymously put
forth. We must believe that the original story
was a malicious concoction, devised by the ene
mies of Mr. Cabrera for the purpose of creat
ing prejudice against him, and perhaps by ene
mies of Central America for the purpose of In
juring the International repute of those states.
It is natural to assume, moreover, that this was
a sample of many equally groundless tales whlch"
have been put forward concerning our southern
neighbors. If any one would Invent a tale so
false and so easily proved false as this we may
reasonnbly suspect many others of which the
truth or untruth Is less readily to be determined.
MOCK WAR AND REAL LESSONS.

upon the public, vicariously and In homneo
pathic doses, up at Pine Camp and around. New-

The last few years have seen military drill
rise in popular esteem. This awakening is
due partly to the wise efforts of the federal
and state authorities, partly to the drift of in
ternational politics and In some degree to a
new realization of the physical and moral value
of a soldier's training. This last factor ought
to he more potent than if is. Even the few
strenuous summer days in which the militia
man tastes military life have a wholesome and
lasting Influence for good. They teach many
a youth discipline and its value; and this les
son is one which few Americans take pains to
study. By coupling the raw denizens of city
armories with the regulars and serving both

enable the suite troops to learn a vast deal
more than they could under the old, easygoing
system of militia • excursions. Scarcely less
Important than discipline Is knowledge about
sanitation and the other household details of
camp life. The instruction now given in these
branches is as thorough as the brief time per
mits, and it cannot fall to improve the per
sonal habits of many learners. While the
rank and tile are being thus hammered into
shape for warfare the public is being taught,
by the same procedure, to see the evil side of
strife. You cannot find a housewife anywhere
along New York Bay who Is anxious to have
the country get into a real war with a real
foreign power. If the cannonading of the forts
in mock battle is likely to smash bric-a-brac
and glassware, and if the searchlights Hashing
along the shore all night make tdte-&,-t£tea and
sleep Impossible, what a nuisance honest hos
tilities must be! The time and money spent- in
teaching all these things every summer are
well Invested. The only question Is how much
more extensive and prolonged the manoeuvres
might profitably be made.
Tho superintendent of motive power of the
subway system tries to excuse the emission of

that it Is necessary to use seml-bltum'nous coal

The question Is not, however, whether it is
necessary to burn soft coal, but whether It is
necessary to emit black rfmoke. There Is good
authority for the belief that soft coal can be so
burned as to give off no seriously offensive
smoke. "To-day," Bays an official report of the

THE TALK OF THE DAY.
A bulletin of the Connecticut State Board of
Health recently Issued calls attention to the dan
gerous character of the ordinary bouse fly, accusing
that busy Insect of all manner of offences against
the public health. The secretary of the board
writes: "We have had occasion frequently to com
ment In the columns of this bulletin on the cause
and prevention of typhoid fever, and, bo long as
this disease continues to be a living Issue among
us, we shall continue to do so. Water, milk, oysters
and flies have at different times been spoken of as
rnenns of spreading this disease. It Is a significant
fact that typhoid Is most prevalent at the. season
of the. year when files are the most numerous.
ThK>e insects breed by preference In stable manure,
but, when this Is not readily accessible, will breed
also in garbage and other tilth. With cleaner
streets, the better cure of stables, back yards,
markets and cleaner garbage palls, the J>reedtn;?
places of flies will be lirrrfted and their agency In
currying the typhoid and other bacilli to the food
of human beings will be less marked. Meanwhile,

A few years aero, when the reform element threat
ened to close the various gambling places In Sara
toga and to make It less easy to evade the law at
the racetrack, the proprietor of one of the notori
ous places said: "Kill gambling and you murder
Saratoga; give the sports a show and Saratoga will
get rich." Tbe late Mark M. Colin, who was a
member of the Saratoga Board of Kducatlon at
that time, said: "The gambk-rs may be right, but
they are wrong also. Saratoga was a popular place
before the 'sports' came. Its natural beauty ami
;ts waters attracted the best people of the country
and made It the annual conjugating place of
Amerlcu's leaders In business, politics and letters.
If you wanted to meet a prominent citizen In the
Hummer time all you liad to do was to stand In
Brradway and watch — some time In the course of
the season the man would appear. The 'sports'
did not make Saratoga popular; they chose It for
the gambling business because of Its established
popularity." 'The passage of the antl-gambltng
law." said :i Sarntoglan yesterday, "may restore

tbe writer says: "Mozart's requiem and his own
funeral march were performed with the assistance*
of LatMache, Vlardot and the concert society. It
was characteristic of the times that the artists
should have asked 2,000 francs for this lust tribute
to Chopin. One would have thought that pride
would have kept them from selling their gifts on
such un occasion."

ROOBEVELT AND TAFT.
From the Brooklyn Eagle.
There Is much fault found with President Roose
velt for pr^ferrln* Mr. Taft for President. Mr.
Roosevelt la a citizen and the President. As a
citizen, he Is a Republican voter In Oyster Bay.
As the President, what has he done t» promote the
nomination of Mr. Taft or to prevent the nomina
tion of any other Republican? What appointment
lias he made or refused to make, or what removal
has he made, to help the, nomination of Mr. Tuft,
or to prevent the nomination of any other Republi
can? We. do not ask concerning newspaper cnaxsea
to that effect. We ask for apecltlcutlon of Instance*).
None has been established.
Had Mr. Itooßevelt not been for Homebody, the
charge that he was manoeuvring for his own re
nomination would have, been hard to escape. To
be for Homebody, to escape the accusation of being
for himself, under cover of his own disclaimers,
was a strategic political necessity. Ills preference
as a citizen among Republicans for Mr. Taft was
bis right. He has only exercised his right .i - a
citizen. His preference may or may not be nhared
by others. He ha« prescribe^ It to none. He has
