AN INCONSISTENT OUTCRY.
Colonel Roosevelt's self-centered ego
tism, his proueness to appl3' the stan
dard of his own selfish interests to
an3- public question, was never quite so
complete and glaringlj' manifested as
in his oulcn against tho Idaho proced
ure which rules his electors off the offi
cial ballot iu that State. Now, it is
quite true that the Tdaho procedure is
utterly vicious and bad. The fact that
the courts have atn'rmcd that procedure
and that the law is such as to require
that court judgment, docs not in the
least mitigato tho obnoxiousness of tho
procedure. A lariro frngmcnt of the
voters of Tdaho aro deprived of their
right to voto for Colonel Roosovclt b3'
the elimination of the Roosevelt elec
tors from the Presidential ticket. This
is uttcrh wrong, and all of the legis
lation which admits of such a suppres
sion of the popular vote is evil with
out exception. The Tribune has fre
quent 13' denounced all that sort of leg
islation, and has objected to the ten
dencies so manifest in nearly all the
election legislation for niau" 3'ears past,
to curtail the Iibert3 of voting unit prac
tically to coerce tho votors into voting
regular part- tickets. Wo aro deeidedh
of the opiniou that the old practice of
allowing evor3' part3" to get up its own'
tickets and every individual to get up
a ticket for himself, without, a 113' offi
cial ballot at all. was decidedly prefer
able to the election procedure which we
now have under so-called reform legis
lation. And so we approvo most heartily Col
onel Rooscvolt ?s outer- against the in
justice of the Idaho procedure which
practical- disfranchises a largo por
tion of the voters of that. State so far
as the Presidential ticket, is concerned.
But, how about California J Precisely
the same thing is done there but in the
-opposite direction. Tu California the
Taft electors are ruled off the oflicial bal
lot and the Roosevelt electors are put
011 as a part of the Republican ticket.
What has Colonel Roosevolt to sa3' about
thisF So far ho has said nothing, and
3'ct it is precisely the same thing done
iu California that lie protests .'mainst
so vehemently when dono in Tdaho.
'How is that for au advocate of the
squaro deal, the man who, makes his tho
slogan, "Thou shalt not steal," and
poses as the reformer par excellence
and tho purist in politics bc3'ond com
pare? A man who has so much to say about
tho squaro deal and who professes to
carrv the moral codo with him into
politics surely ought not to make a
contradiction liko this in his own acts
and procedure. It certainly is no worse
to disfranchise Roosevelt men in Jdaho
than it is to disfranchise Taft men in
California. And yet Colonel Roosevelt
makes a loud and vehement protest
against what is dono in Idaho and re
mains in complacent silence- about, what
is done in California. His code seems
to be that anything is proper and right,
that serves his interests, no matter how
evil it ma3' bo in itself, and anything
that is against him is utter! j vile and
vicious, no matter how much it ma bo
paralleled otherwiso in his own favor,
or how much it ma3' bo according to
usage and law.
If Colonel Roosevelt had come out
with a rousing denunciation of tho dis
franchisement of voters both in Califor
nia and Idaho, ho would have placed
himself in an impregnable position bo
fore the countrj. As it is, Binco he
denounces onhy the Idaho procedure and
maintains a satisfied silence with re
gard to California, he makes himself
contcmptiblo before the public and ut
terl3' belies his affected insistence upon
a "squaro deal." Clearly his rule of
action is the rule of utter selfishness,
and the cry for a square deal is sim
ply put on for purposes of imposture
and to mislead the voters, a sort of
self-centered,' eager grabbing which ut
terly fails to be square when practically
appliod. For, why is it so utterly
damnable to disfranchise Roosevelt vo
ters in Idaho, and so completely praise
worthy to disfranchise Taft voters in
A CANDIDATE FOR THE CLUB.
There is' ,1 British noble who is in im
minent danger of achieving membership
in tho Ananias Club without his con
sent, and perhaps even without his
knowledge. Tho occasion for his eligi
bility to that club.. arises from a state
ment, that ho has made about Roone
velt's game hunting iu Africa.
Lord Crau worth he is; who has print
ed a book on tho British occupation
of East. Africa, entitling it "A Colonv
in the Making." Tn this book he has
a note which sa3's that on the hunt
after bonno by the Roosevelt party,
the Colonel iuvnriablv canm back empty-handed,
" being precluded b3'his bulk
and conversational powers from track
ing, wherein the utmoHt caution and
luck" of noise arc essential."
ITero indeed is a shocking assault
upon , the Colonel at his weakest point.
His bulkinosH caunot be denied, his con
versational powers arc of the highest
grade, but it seems that tho bongo
did not appreciate that conversation,
and fo made himpclf scarco whenever
he heard it.
A shocking revelation this is, and
the first real derogatory word that has
come to America villi respect to the
Colonel's groat hunting triumphs in
Africa; but tho man who sends this
word can hardly hope to cscapo un
scathed, lie will be posted without
delay as a prevaricator of unusual and
malignant pervorsit3 Otherwise, Col.
Roosevelt, must have lost his nip, and
the world will lie tho poor.cr in pic
turesque language for that loss.
BELOVED PASTOR. BEREAVED.
Thero can 'bo nothing effectual said
to assuage the grief which lias eonn
upon Pastor Simpluii of II'5' ;'
the death of his beloved wife. This
storm of grief has swept ovor him, re
sistless, terrible; but tho man who has
dono So much to comfort the griof of
others in their bereavements is tho
center of a universal outpouriug of
reciprocal S3'mputli3 iu this hour of
his trouble, lie has ne,ver failed any
one in his ministrations of) Christian
hope and uplift, and so ho is tho center
of a universal sentiment hero that
shares in the grief which overwhelms
him at. this time.
Parson Simpkiu is one of the greatest
figuros of this comnmuit3 Ho is al
ways roadj' for cvor3 good work, and is
especially helpful and hopeful in his
Christiau ministrations to ' those1 who
are afflicted. It, is but uatnral, there
fore, that ho should bo supported by
the fervent and universal sympathy
of this community in this hour of his
sorrow. This S3'nipath3' goes out to
him without measure and without stint.
May the Lord of bis trust support him
in this grievous trial, and ma3' tho
ministrations which he Jias so abundant
ly bestowed upon others return upon
him, as a balm to his stricken spirit.
EUROPEAN ' ' MODERATION. ' '
The supercilious attitude assumed by
European journals and spokesmen at
times, tho supcriorit3' with which they
view the "crude Amerir.nn" uproar,
mn3' well exasperate Americans who un
derstand that it is not, Americans
alone who allow j.he natural vigor of
the fighting race to be heard. Wo aro
reminded pleasantly and skillfull of
tho ridiculousness of that samo
European assumption of superiority over
American iu .this particular by a
sarcastic article in tho current Atlantic
Monthly written by Mr. Samuel M.c
I Chord Crothors. lie notes tho roport
in a London newspaper of some vituper
ative outburst in this prcsont cam
paign in the United States, and tho
toplofty comment in that paper that
"all this is characteristically Ameri
can, but it shocks the unaccustomed
cars of l'juropc. " But aro tho cars of
Europe so unaccustomed to public and
political uproar? Mr. Crithors pro
ceeds to inquire into this point, and
the results of his inquiry are set forth
b3 him with a pertinence and humorous
enjo3-ment that must captivate tho
heart of ovcr3' American.
Mr. Crothors, noting the shock to the
"unaccustomed ears of Europe" from
the rival conventions at Chicago and
Baltimore, takes a page from the pro
coccdings of the Italian parliament at
Romo, whore "shouts and catcalls and
ever3' sign of uncontrollable vio
lence," were heard, and he confesses
that ho could not understand the
"reasons annexed to all this uproar."
Then he. turns to Budapest, whore -the

pressed, "the police during tho previous
night made three thousand arrests"
when the Czar visited his ancient
capital, and the next da3 the Cznr and
Czarina drove through the city amid
the ringing of bells and with banucrs
flying. Mr. Crothers ver3' jiiBtlj com
ments upon this hy sa3'ing: "If, dur
ing tho Chicago convention, the police
bad made three thousand arrests, the
sessions might have been as quiet as
those of the Duma."
Passing then to the British Houso of
Commons, the Mol.hor of Parliaments,
Mr. Crother narrates that 611 entering
the sacred precincts, a member is seen
to rise to a point of order. "T desiro
to ask your ruling, Mr. Speaker, as to
whether the honorable gontlcman is en
titled to allude to members of the
House, as miscreants." Tho Speaker
gravel' ruled, "I do not think the
term 'miscreant' is a proper Parlia
But nothing conies of this, and tho
Speaker is constantly obliged to remind
members that he3 arc out of order.
An episode in the proceedings of the
House of Commons is quoted hy Mr.
Crothers "which would be considered
exciting in Arizona," And he thus
"For live minutes tho Honorable George
LJinsbury dellod the Speaker, Insulted the
Prime Minister, anil Kcorned tho IIoiite of

1 Tho trouble began with a statement of
Mr, Aaqulth's, "Then up jumped Mr.
' Lansbury. his face contorted with pa-
Hlon, and his powerful rasping voice, domi
nating the whole Houae. Shouting and
waving his anna, he approached the Gov

. crouching gait, like a boxer leaving hla

Lansbury had worked hliiiHelf up into a
state of frenzy and, facing tho Prime
Minister, he rihoutcd, 'You are beneath

It would appear, thoreforc, that wo
can view with eoniplacen.cj' the uproar
of an unofficial bod3- like a party con

newspaper that clamor of this kind "is

THE STORY OP A TREACHERY.
The public has been waiting for somo
time' for"thc f.tory of the betrayal of
La Follefcto by tho Rooscvolt following.
It will be romcmbcrcd that La Toilette
was originally the Progressive Repub
lican candidate for tho. Presidency. He
protested all tho time that ho did not
wish to come to tho front in this way,
but as no ono else would take the load,
and as Colonel Roosevelt's friends, ap
paroutb" speaking for tho Colonel, in
sisted upon La Follottc going to the
front, ho finalb' consented to do so.
Thcu all at onco he was betrayed by
the Piuchot and Garfield crowd in the
Ohio Stale convention, whero the-,
claiming to speak for him, objectod to
his personal endorsement, und prevent
Tho whole storv- is now told by Sen
ator La Follctto in his weokl3' maga
zine. A former chapter laid tho foun
dation for this story, claiming that
Roosovclt urged La Follctto to lead the
Progressive cause, and then when ho
saw La Follctto s caudidac3' was so
strong, Roosevelt undermined it in or
der to grab tho nomination for him- '
self. Tho story then proceeds':
After tho Colonel's tour of tho West,
early In 1011, writes La Follotte. Kooso
velt decided that the Progressives should
put forth a candidate against Taft. Gil
son Gardner, tho newspaper correspond
ent, came to La Follottc, bearing this mes
sage from Roosevelt.
"That I (La Follette.) should bo that
candidate, and that I .should set Into the
fight at once."
La Follette. said the Colonel, was tho
natural leader of the progressives, for he
had done the pioneer work. Roosevelt
culd not so tho mesaago ran openly ad
vocato La Follctto'a candidacy against
Taft, but he would commend La Folletto's
work In the Outlook and help as he could,
from time to time.
On April 30 a conference of Progres
sives was held In Washington. All agreed
that they should unite ou a candidate, to
concentrate tho movement.
"Thero Is but one man who should bo
considered," said Senator Cummins, "and
that Is Senator La Follotte." Cummins,
the Senator adds, pledged him his own.
La Follctto, however, hesitated. "I es
timated ny own worth to the progressive
cause too highly," he Kays, "to consent
to being used as a candidate for a time
and then, to servo soinc ulterior pur
pose, conveniently broken and cast upon
the scrap heap, my ability to servo tho
progressive cause seriously damaged, and
possibly the movement Itself diverted and
subordinated to mere personal ambition."
He feared that tho movement might, bo
"shifted for political expediency to some
other candidate." He believed that, as the
campaign advanced and past weakness
was revealed, "either Cummins or Roose
velt or perhaps both, might then be
templed to thrust In, thu3 dividing pro
gressive strength and defeating real prog
ress." About October, 1011, a friend of Poose
velt. who. up to this time ban been for
La Follette, visited Oyster Bay. Return
ing he went to the- Senator and reported.
"Roosevelt Is not only aurprlsed at the
development of your candidacy, but he Is
disappointed as well." He added, says
La Follette, ".Roosevelt wants to be Pres
ident again but you know It has hereto
fore been his Judgment that Taft could
not be beaten." Roosevelt now seemed to
consider La Follette In the way.
Then came a conference of Plnchot and
others with Roosevelt, as a result of which
La Follette was informed that Roosevelt
would not make a. public announcement
to that effect; that La Follette should go
ahead, and if he could not win the nom
ination in the convention, then Roosevelt
might possibly step In as a candidate; but
meantime "the wires should not be

paign distribution, and tried to send out.
Instead, an article written by himself

;many Instances of alleged betrayal.
Wo boliovo that La Follette is telling
tho exact truth in this, and that 'his
betrayal b3' tho Roosevelt crowd was
ono of the most infamous political jobs

A FINE-DRAWN PISTTNOTION.
The old sarcasm of those who, for
purposes of their own, mako a sharp
distinction between tweedledum aud
tweedlcdec, is vindicated by a rccout
incident in the present political cam
paign. It appears that Governor Wil
son wrote an article for a magazine,
for which the magazine scut him a
check for $500. Governor Wilson en
dorsed the chock over to tho Demo
cratic campaign committee. That com
mittee refused to receive it, on the
ground that tho magazine which paid,
tho monoy to the Governor is published
by a corporation. Theroforo tho money
was corporato money, and so tainted.
But Governor Wilson was determined
that tho money should go to the cam
paign expenditure, and so he dopositcd
tho check in his bank in his own name,
and drew his own personal check for
tho same amount aud sent it to the
committoe. This check was acccptod
as without .taint, aud tho monoy put
into tho campnigu fund.
It appears, therefore, that to pass
a check through a bank cleanses it of
taint. A check received direct from
a corporation to the Democratic cam
paign fund would be "tainted mone.3',"
but when the ono in whose favor that
check is drawn deposits it in tho bank
and sends cither tho money for it or
his own personal, check, tho taint if
Great is tweedledum and mighty is
twccdlede.o, and a humbugging pretense
of immaculate purify appears to bo
mightier than both put together.
