It is simple Justice to say that. Judged by the

In it Mr. Hitchcock made bis first appearance

THE \ATUt\AL YICTOHY.
The country has voted emphatically to con
tinue the policies of tin- Hoos.'velt administra
tion and to continue them under the leadership
of the "man arhojn it considers I'resident Roose
velt's lojrieal succssor. ' The question of heir
ship has been definitely settled and Mr. Bryan's
fantastic claim thai he. not Mr. Taft. was the
legitimate legatee) jroes glimmering with those
many other false alarms with which ho ha*
waked the echoes since Ik- began his varie
gated, career as an impressionist and opportu
nist politician. The decisive character of Mr.
Taffs victory shows that the American public
is no; to be captured by specious pretenses and
hollow promises, and. that it will not surrender
the substance of orderly, progressive and re
sponsible administration for the shadow of
hasty, drastic and impracticable reforms. There
• •an be no doubt, in view of the country's ver
did. that a great majority of the voters thor
oughly approve the policies which the Repuh
lic:in party has been putting into practice in the
last four years and that they recognise in Mr.
Taft an ideal instrument for the further de
velopment of those policies, in electing him
President the nation indicates its purpose not to
rest until the abuses which the Republican
party attacked are rooted out or our political,
commercial and industrial life, and undemo
cratic inequality and favoritism have perma
nently given place to the "square deal."
Mr. Taffs election was due to the measures
and ideas for which he stood, and to the ad
mirable demonstration which he gave through
out the campaign of poise, simplicity and can
dor. He made a marked success as a cam
paigner because he bad nothing to conceal ami
spoke out of a clear conscience and with abso
lute conviction. Ho was the same man East.
West. North and South, while his opponent
tried to temper his principles to his .latitude and
longitude and be all things to all sections. Un
accustomed to the strain of continuous speak
ing, Mr. Taft developed unexpected capacity
as a vote getter and won" the confidence of
thousands who bad never met him face to face
and may have been prejudiced against him by
malicious misrepresentation. He could do this
because In all bis utterances he was transpar
ently sincere, honest and straightforward.
Mr. Bry-m's failure as a campaigner was ob
vious a month ago. It was not so much that he
had lost his skill as an orator or a pleader.
Hut he had hat hi* compass and could no longer
conduct an aggressive and impassioned canvass.
lie vacillated and shifted, when he should have
taken a single definite line of attack. His in
sincere bargain with Mr. Gompers for the union
labor vote was a millstone about his neck ; for
lie could neither admit that he had granted Mr.
Qeceneca'* demands in the evasive Denver plat
form nor deny that be had granted them. He
thus drove from bis support thousands of voters
who had formerly considered him. if possibly a
visionary, at; least a consistent and courageous
radical." Mr. Bryan did riot read the lesson of
the campaisrn.of 1004. He tried to narrow hi*
views and reduce himself to the Parker stature,
hoping thereby to placate the Democratic poli
ticians of the East and South. He did not seem
to realize that by Parkcrizing himself he simply
invited another 1901 disaster.
Mr. Taft comes into office with a great popu
lar majority behind him. He will be supported
by a House of Representatives Republican by a
majority a little under a hundred and a Senate
two-thirds Republican. There will be no ob
stacle to his carrying out the pledges of con
structive legislation given both in his speeches
and la the Republican platform. His equip
ment for discharging the duties of the Presi
dency is superb and his political aims are high.
He will have an opportunity to impress himself
on history such as has been offered to few of
his predecessors. He will live up to the possi
bilities of his station and the magnitude of his
SVSSIA ±\'D THE STRAITS.
The pn spect of a European congress for the
readjustment of relations in the Balkans and
the Xear Bast pen. -rally suggests tlie almost in
evitable raising of the question of Russia's rlpht
to traverse the Dardanelles and Bosporus
with her military :is well as with her commer
cial Oeets. Th.it questi. >n would, of course, be
raised if the Treaty <-f Berlin were taken np
for revision, though, as v mattei- of fact, it
antedates that Instrument by many decades.
It i- now Bearing two centuries since the
straits were open to the Russian navy. That is
to say, they nave never— unless for a few years
three^fourths of a century ago — been open t«>
the Ku^sian navy since Russia lias bad a navy
worthy of the name, or since Russia lias had a
frontage on the Black Sea, and, therefore, a nat
ural and peaceful reason for traversing them,
peter the Great founded the Russian navy, in
a meagre fashion, but it amounted to nothing In
bis time or for years after, and it was only four
teen year after his death that the straits were
legally barred against all Russian ships. For a
little time Peter bud possession of the mouth
«>f the Don River, and. therefore, an outlet upon
the Blaeh Sea, but be soon lost it to 'lie Turks,
and It was not until more than half a century
after his death thai Catherine the Great ae
(•ured a permanent territorial frontage) o;i that
sea largelj by rirtue of <Me ill requited wee
rices of John Paul Jones.
The prohibition Of Russian use of the straits
is curiously bound up with the history of Bul
garia. It was in st:;:* that the prohibition was
first formally made, in the Treaty of Belgrade,
after the Turks had regained possession of that
city without the Bring of ■ shot. it was stip
ulated In that treaty that no Russian ship.
either of war or of commerce, should enter the
waters of the Euxine. Russia had then almost
no commercial marine, and was not likely to
send such as she bad to those waters, and as she
bad no frontage on the Euxine there -■, us no
reason for her sanding warships thither, except
ing with belligerent intent against her neigh
bor. But In 1771 a treat;. gay«« Russia permis
sion to si- •; her mercantile marine through the
straits. a .i when some years later Catherine
effected t v conquests on the E&uxiae littoral a
considerable Russian commerce arose In those
waters. In IV.:. a Turkish treaty made
at Russia's dictation bound Turkey to close the
straits agaliisl all ships of war of whatever coun
try. though it might have permitted Russian
ships i<> traverse them, In 1841, however, an
other treat! closed the stiails in rime of peace
ngaiusi worships of all nations, and Imprisoned
in the Black Sea Hie shin« which Russia had
constructed there. This led to the war of is.'.::.
and at the end of it the Treaty of Paris in i. •$."»••
not only reaffirmed that closing of the straits
but also decreed that Itussla should not main
tain a tld't in the Black Sea or a dockyard upon
its shore. That extreme prohibition prevailed
until I*7l. when the Convention of London per
mitted Russia to have ii Black Sen .Meet and
dockyards? though the straits remained closed.
This convention, however, kept tile straits
closed against only Russian ships of war. Those
<-f Great Britain and France might go through.
with the Sultan's permission.
This last is really (he state of affairs which
bow exists, for the Treaty of Berlin In 1K7 S S
ide no change In It. Of course, tlie aspect of
ih«» case has b?eu uisterlally altered in rpcctjt
years by tin .re. it:. of other than Russian
navies and His rise of other Hutu Russian and
Turkish nolitk-al and ooaraereial interests on

pi>Mti*'Mt frontage on those waters Mad maintains
a nav.r there, and so does Bulgaria; while Auk
tria-llunsary has a navy on the Danube which
may pass down that international river to the
Euxine. The question, therefore, arises whellier
th,> time has not come for i.nttiii}i the straits on
somewhat such a basis as the Sue/. Canal, which
in 18SS was made free to belligerent navies on
condition that no delay in passage should occur
and that no belligerent ads should '»•' commit
ted within the waters of the canal. Of course
the wishes of regenerated Turkey should be
<-ensidered in the matter. But "should" is not
always -inu^f." and- for all the establishment of
■ constitution, and the liberalizing of institu
tions. Turkey is not yet in a condition cither to
dictate term's for the use of her straits or to
enforce aucli terms as may bo made.
THE THllMl'll IS XEW YORK.
Many reasons for congratulation occur to the
mind rejoicing in Governor Hushes'* splendid
victory. The winner himself is to be congratu
lated upon his well deserved triumph. The Re
publican party is to be congratulated upon the
possession of so. great ■ son. The stale is to
he ivi'grntulrvuvl upon the retention of •"> valu
able ■ servant. Hut it seems, most of .ill. that
the people of the state deserve congratulation
upon the high quality of citizenship they have
displayed. Mr. Bryan asked, "Shall th- people
rule?" In the election of Mr. Hughes they hare
ruled, and they have demonstrated again, aid in
a new and striking manner, tnat they arc tit to
rule — excellently tit to rule. They have shown
their appreciation of the highest qualities in
public life, intellectual and moral leadership of
,'i superior variety, high ideals and an unbend
ing adhesion to then), unselfish devotion to the
public interest and a courageous defiance of
every force opposed to it, a fine faith In reason
and a steadfast refusal to stoop to any dema
gogic act. Men went about the state saying
that a man exhibiting these qualities was- "too
good" for public life, but Hie people have shown
that he v as not too good for them, that no one
like him Can be too good for them. They have
shuttered the old illusion that in aim high
in public life there is danger of going 'V<r the
people's heads, and have thereby tremendously
encouraged the faith of every one who believes
in the people and popular government.
For the fight was a straight-out and bitter
fight between good citizenship and bad citizen
ship, and good citizenship has won by about as
handsome a plurality as that by which two
years ago Bane, collected, level headed citizen
ship won over excited, irrational, hysterical
citizenship. Mr. Chanter deliberately elected to
lead the cause of bad citizenship, to mar«h at
the head of every force of graft and pull, self
ishness, corruption and lawlessness. He might
have pitched the campaign on a different level
and gone down to no less certain defeat, but
defeat without discredit, and he would have
done so if he had lived up to the rather favor
able Impression the state once had of him as
the avowed admirer of Mr. Hughes. He sinned
against the light, although he saw it clearly.
His campaign was conducted in the cynical be
lief that the forces of evil would triumph over
the forces of good. He put a low mate on
the people's capacity for public morality, and
the people have magnificently rebuked him for
his unworthy opinion of them.
The public appreciation of Mr. Hughes's
character and services has been just as sig
nificantly manifested here in this • city as
throughout the rest of the state. The small ma
jority here for Mr. « 'hauler, despite the fact
that the selfish interests whose enmity Mr.
Hughes had gained were very strong and active,
and despite the existence of a large foreign ele
ment to which Insidious and partly successful
appeals were made, indicates the existence of
an effective degree of civic morality 1 ere in a
large section of the electorate. Tammany was
heartily enlisted in the causes which Mr. ('hau
ler's candidacy represented, yet it failed, not
withstanding all the aid it pot from interested
sources, to roll up for him one of its oldtime
majorities. The result is a hopeful wipn for
I the cause of better government in the city.
Mr. Hughes runs considerably behind Mr.
i Taft in the state, as has been usual with Re-
J publican candidates for Governor in recent
I national elections, but his nomination unques
[ tionably added great strength to the ticket in
New York and elsewhere and helped to con
\ firm the position of tee party as a moral
' agency. He is one of the party's great men.
of whom it is justly proud. It is its capacity
to breed such men as Hughes, Roosevelt and
Taft, in contrast to the Democratic party's
; poverty in serviceable leadership, that lias made
! it so remarkably successful in recent years. So
long as it continues rich in such lenders ii will
t deserve to win. and will win.
SEBIXQ THJSQB AT NIGHT.
In these days, when the problem »f aerial
navigation trembles on the verge of solution
and tlie world is expecting that at any moment
the complete conquest of the heaven- will be
announced, the airiest tales of skywa 1 travel
are listened to with respectful attention, for
then- is always the possibility (hat this par
liciilar yarn will be true. While certain indi
viduals of Imaginative temperament have long
possessed the power to Bee things, especially
at night and while lh<s». eights have exhausted
tiie entire list of names known to tlic student
of EooJogy — the spectacle resembling o ■ not
able decree the entrance of the animals into
the ark. owing t (t the fact that, whether pink
elephants or yellow kangaroos, they always
wave! in couples— it is only of lute years thai
belated individuals have bee'i a! Ie to convince
themselves that they could see. travelling abotti
in the upner air, lights which could ie borne
only by the machine of some aeronaut >ut for B
; Some twenty years ago, to be sure, when In
i terest In aerial navigation was at ■ high pitch
: owing to the approaching exposition in Chicago.
! where it was hoped that some effective demon
strations along this line might be made, there
, wat» reported t\> i>e travelling over the State of
lowa a light very much like that which has
recently been discovered by veracious Inhabi-
I tants of Sew England. According to the re
ports from Boston, several men. names given
j and pedigrees being looked into, have observed
during the night a bright light above them, not
; like that of a lantern but resembling the pierc
: ing gleam of ■ searehlrght. This light would
, scar aloft and then come near the earth In a
I way to Indicate that the operator was desirous
i of 'ascertaining bis whereabouts .or lading a
! soft place to land.
The parallel between the lowa discovery of
I twenty years ago — not the lowa Idea, which
j is of later origin — and that of the veracious
I New Englanders of the present time is notable.
I In the first place, in neither case was the light
i seen by some early farmer or dairyman going
i barn ward to draw the lacteal fluid from the
' gentle bovine, but by belated travellers return
i ing from town at a time when they should have
I been playing a wide mouthed accompaniment
' to the song of the early bird outside ai he tared
I forth in search of the vagrant worm. li will
also be remembered that la those days the sen
timent of the Bawkettea bad so far reacted on
i the prohibition question r.s to elect a governor
'on the wet issue resulting in perhaps a more
: extended use of those Instruments through

them as had demonstrated to ' '•' satisfaction

the laws of gravitation made it iniwr-essnj
I to resort to artificial means of keeping tlieru
close to mother earth. The only puzzling feat

New Englanders a few days ago is that none

THE TALK OF IHE it\Y.
An elderly man who voted early yesterday at one
of the uptown polling places stopped outside after
his ballot had been deposited and showed to th
group of watchers som* badges which he had worn
in former Presidential campaigns. The largest one
was made of white metal, with General Grant's
head on one side and Schuyler Colfax'a on the other.
The original red, white and blue ribbon with which
It had been tied In a buttonhole was in Its
place, and th. colon were still bright. The Gar
field and Arthur badge bad the portraits of the
candidates on a miniature flat;, and the Harrison
anil Morton badge was in the form of a star," with

A New YerK lawyer, writing from Berlin, says:
"If the early closing people have their way a »re.i:
change will come over Berlin on November X. it
is proposed from that time forward* to run the
bupiness houses a little nearer to the American
plan, bo far as working hours are concerned. At
present retail stores are open until 9 p. m. and
later, and many wholesale establishments do busi
ness until S o'clock. The new order looks to a
reformation, in so far that 8 o'clocts will be the re
tail limit. Both clerks and proprietor? .ioined in a
protest against the present system, and the day
may be made still shorter. Eventually the German
merchant will cut out his midday chess and l.iii
lards, and will learn that he can do as much
business from * until <> as he now does from dawn
until late at night. In all the discussions which
1 have heard on the subject the plans leading
toward rational hours have always been referred
to as 'American.' "

after the Storthing had appropriated funds for a
chair on Norwegian literature and begins: "Henrik
