The remark attributed to the mayor
in the morning Tribune, that Alderman
Gerber is one of the council who 'has
made good and who should be continued
in office regardless of politics, appears
to have shocked that venerable organ
as coming from a republican mayor
with regard to a democratic alderman.
It will scarcely be received that way
by the people. If the mayor made this
statement and is correct about the rec
ord of Alderman Gerber, there is every
reason why he should have made the
remark attributed to him, and no valid
reason why he should not have said it.
It is still a little bit unusual for an
official of one party to publicly com

it is becoming more common, and right
The city is a corporation engaged in
the transaction of business. Its cor
porate interests are distinct from those
interests which its stockholders have
as members of the larger community
of the state and the still larger com
munity of the nation. One mortifying
defect of our local campaigns hereto
fore has been too much national poli
tics in our local affairs.
We are gradually learning that' this
is not good business. It has been an
expensive school, the tuition has been
high and the teacher stern. But the
lesson that it is unsafe to allow a gas
or street railway company to choose its
own representative under the cloak of
a party has been learned. For the city,
a democrat who, is straight upon the
local issues, tho wild on silver, is better
than a republican who is essentially
sane upon -the money and tariff but dis
eased with regard to the public-service
problem. And vice versa.

Dissolving Swollen Fortunes.
The will of Alfred Beit, the dead
diamond king, is an example of the dis
tribution of a vast estate which carries
with it none of the fears of the per
petuation of "swollen fortunes." Af
ter bequeathing great sums to char
itable, educational and industrial ob
jects, he gives the remainder absolutely
to his brother. Who this brother may
be, the world has no information, but
he is probably a person who will enioy
the fortune while he lives and pass it
on in portions to numerous relatives
and friends and possibly for the con
tinuation of some of the projects fa
vored in the will of the creator of the
Thus the fortune gradually will find
its way back into the common stock
of wealth. A part of it will have been
permanently arrested for educational
institutions, but here, too, it will have
returned to the "common stock, since
these institutions are practially free.

This sort of distribution by testa

The Illinois Primary.
The new Illinois primary law is an
effort to unite direct nominations with
delegate conventions, the controlling
idea of the law being to prevent, if
possible, minority nominations. Where
any candidate secures a majority in
the direct primary, his name goes upon
the ticket of his party for the election.
But where no candidate secures a ma
jority for any office, recourse is had to
the decision of a convention of dele
gates selected on the same day and
Tinder the same restrictions surround
ing the primary.
Such a law has obvious advantages
over the unrestrained direct primary,
which may, and often does, result in a
candidate having only a small plurality
of the" vote walking off with the nom
ination. It ought to be helpful in the
selection of members of boards where
a great many unknown candidates en
ter and whose capacities are never can
vassed because the larger offices eat
up all the attention of the voters. With
such a law the parties might be in
duced to run enough candidates for all
the minor positions so that the contest
would certainly be thrown into the con
vention. As to judieial places there
might be an agreement to put up no
candidates at all and leave the selec
tion to the delegates, who should be
left perfectly free to nominate whom
they please, or to enter into agree
ments with other parties for a non
partisan judicial ticket. This would
certainly be more inspiring than the
spectacle of half the lawyers in a dis
trict careering about after a judgeship
and the other half legging for favorite
The selection of delegates to the con
vention would become of great im
portances Presumably any member of
a party might propose himself and he
jp might be chosen by a slight plurality
of the-.total vote, but still in the con
ventiottitself it would take a majority
p to nominate.

Russia's Parliamentary Crisis.
The reactionaries of Eussia have been
watching for a chance to do the douma,
and they appear to believe they have
found it in the address to the country
issued, by the majority. The address is
claimed to stamp the douma as a revo
lutionary center, tho its purpose was
the very reverse of countenancing Sc
ience. It urged the peasants to-remain
passive and. wait for results in the agra
rian discussion. But the douma never
theless sees it made a tactical mistake
in issuing any address at all. It was
not compelled to do so and it could not
frame any document which the reac
tionaries would not denounce as sa
voring of encouragement to revolution.
The situation now is that the czar
has prepared a ukase dissolving the

The United States government is
one of the greatest business institu

is in the hands of William H. Taft. The
last few years have changed the posi

the civil war, the army portfolio was

"STUDI63 IN CONSTITUTIONAL
HISTORY," BY JUDGE PIERCE.Judg
James O. Pierce, formerly a judge of the
district court of Tennessee and lecturer
on constitutional law in the University of
Minnesota, is the author of a book of un
usual interest to the busy man, who still
wishes to take some of his time to post
himself on constitutional questions. It
bears the title Studies In Constitutional
History, and inoludes Buch subjects as

EthiOs of Secession," "The American and
French Revolutions Compared," "Slavery
in Its Constitutional Relations," "The
Genesis of Constitutions," "America's
Leadership*" "The American Empire,"
"America's Place in History."
The question of the right or wrong of
the secessionist argument, of special In
terest to the old soldier, is discussed
with minuteness in the essay on the
Ethics of Secession. Judge Pierce fails
to And any Justification for the acts of
The above are not all of the subjects
discussed, but they are suggestive of the
character of the book and its value as a
piece of reading supplementary to the
usual outline history with which most
readers content themselves. It is worthy
of,special note that Judge Pierce, from
his close study of history, is convinced
^'that the fundamental incidents, the
great events recognized as the turning
points hi history are providentially con
trolled and that 'one consistent purpose
runs' thru ail modern history."
Judge Pierce's studies are far from the
dry-as-dust type. His style Is crystalline
in Us clearness, and his points are put
with a force and effectiveness that im
press them upon the mind and make
them stick in the memory. The book

more and more commanding importance

"STOttY WITH A MORAL FROM PEO-

Briefly, the story is that of "a fool

selfishness, as to reproach him for his

this. Even more despicable, and typical
enough, is the character of Paul McAllis
ter, the millionaire Mephistopheles, who
took advantage of Mrs. Warrener's folly.
Unfortunately the very class who might
with profit draw a moral from the

Situation In Hennepin andJRamsey as to
Interests the Leaders-
Cole Will Gain Over dunn In Hennepin,
but Ramsey l UncertainLabor Ticket
In St. Paul New Factor In Legisla
In state political circles there is a good
deal of speculation as tb how the two
large counties win stand as between
Johnson and Cole, if the election is at
all close, it will be settled by the vote of
Ramsey and Hennepin, as it was two
years ago. Then Johnson's plurality in
the entire state was, 7,862, while Hennepin
county gave him 8.282,, so that outside of
Hennepin Dunn led by 420 votes. It is
the history of the past ten years that as
Hennepin goes, so goes the state. Clough
carried Hennepin in 1896 Lind in 1898
Van Sant In 1900 and 1902, and Johnson
The Johnson plurality in Hennepin was
surprisingly large, even to those who fol
lowed the campaign closely. It was gen
erally estimated at 5,000, and 6,000 was
considered a liberal calculation. In Ram
sey county, on the other hand, Johnson
fell down, getting only 1,114, Where he was
thought to be good for 3,000.
The democratic leaders admit that they
will lose ground in Hennepin this year.
Conditions are altogether changed, and
there Is no open revolt of leading repub
licans, such as swept the republican
fourth, fifth and eighth wards into the
Johnson camp by such enormous plurali
ties. Johnson will get a good many re
publican votes, but they will go by indi
viduals and not by droves The heavy
republican wards will go for Cole this
time. Johnson will probably make a bet
ter showing in the democratic wards than
he did before. The large Irish democratic
vote that went for Dunn will drift back
to Johnson. He is expected to hold his
own fahiy well In the heavy Swedish pre
cincts also. The governor has been cul
tivating the acquaintance of Minneapolis
people, and has a good many personal
friends here who did not know him in
1904. In spite of all this, he is bound to
lose ground. With a candidate who is
satisfactory, the mass of the republican
voters will stay by the ticket One of the
local members of the republican state
committee is predicting 3,500 for Cole in
Hennepin. Other republicans think Cole
will do well if he gets out of Hennepin
with an even break. The Johnson men
are not making figures, but claim that the
governor will get a good plurality in the
county. They cannot afford to concede
much of a loss in Hennepin with the mar
gin outside so close.
The democrats claim they will make a
stronger showing in Ramsey than they
did two years ago. They have a good or
ganization, while the republicans are
somewhat demoralized after their losing
city campaign. The republican vote was
swelled in Ramsey two years ago by a
thousand or so democrats who voted for
Dunn on nationality grounds. This year
they will naturally swing back to Johnson
The republican committee is going to
make a special effort in Ramsey. Messrs.
Hoffman, Warner, Webster, Walther and
Anderson, the state committee members,
are men of influence in their various
spheres, and they will work hard to wipe
out the Johnson lead in Ramsey county.
The workingmen's legislative ticket,
which was named in St. Paul last even
ing, provides independent nominations in
most of the Ramsey county districts, and
it is likely to upset old party calculations.

Milwaukee, July 21.~-Justice Boufet
D. Marshall of the supreme court of
Wisconsin was the high court official re
ferred to in Thursday's proceedings pf
the '"Wisconsin legislative life insur
ance investigation committee when
State Manager J. G. Albright of the
Union Central Life Insurance company
of Cincinnati produced correspondence
showing that a supreme court official
asked that the life insurance agent's
commission for collection of the prem
ium on his policy be paid to him.
The authenticity of the correspon
dence was vouched for by Justice Mar
shall over the long-distance telephone
late yesterday afternoon. The justice,
however, thought there was nothing ir
regular in any of the letters.
The original correspondence was pro
duced by Mr. Albright late yesterday.
The letters soliciting the commission
for collection is as follows:
In Black and Whit*.

tral Life Insurance Company, Cincinnati,
OhioGentlemen: I hold policy NO.
232009 in your company, on which there
falls due on the 18th day of this month
the annual premium of $671.40. I am not
at present advised as to whether I *wfli
be obliged to remit to the principal office.
Makes Clean Breast of It.
I wrote, as the letter^ willv"BlHifr
that the company had no local agent- in
Madison that I did not know where to
send the money for the premium and
submitted to the general office of the
company the propriety of allowing me
to pay the premium into the bank and
receive the tfsual agent's
back, suggesting that they
the bank if it seemed proper to them.
"They evidently did not deem, it
proper and I sent the money in IpJl.
That is all there ie to it."
No Chance to Impeach.
The disclosures were the subject of
conversations very generally yesterday,
and rumors of all sorts fill the air. Im
peachment proceedings Were hinted at
in some dtiarters, but th& members of
the insurance investigating comjhittee,
scoff at such a proposition. "I$ft
"The very worst construction that
can be placed on the incident/' said
one of the committee, "is that a judge
attempted to find a lawful way in which
the law might be evaded and suggested
it to the agent. There is absolutely
nothing upon which any criminal ac
tion can be based.
"This incident, however, shows how
far reaching the practice of rebating is
and the apparent uselessness of trying
to correct the evil by law. The only
way I can suggest for remedying the
evil is by cutting down the agent's
commissions so that they cannot afford
to give, rebates.''

department show that the UnTon Cen

Metropolitan Opera House
In "The Cowboy and the Lady,^'
Clyde Fitch's great American comedy,
to be produced at the Metropolitan
theater next week, Manager Dick Ferris
has made a selection that is bound to
be popular. The play has all of the
breeziness of the western plains and
this, added to thrilling action and a
number of cleverly humorous charac
ters and situations, make it a peer of
any stage story of its kind.
Teddy North, the hero, is one of the
Nat Goodwin parts in which Dick Fer
ris has appeared with signal success.
It is a heroic role with enough of a
mixture of humor, pathos, love and
daring'to make it irresistible in eapable
hands** Florense Stonfe will be seen to
'advantage, as will the other
lembers of the Ferris Stock company.
The cast for "The Cowboy and the
Lady" is as follows:

other three, made later, declaring the
first to be false.
