there are few, if any, indications of
race suicide in the families of Ameri

grandchildren of Commodore Cornelius
Vanderbilt number twenty-five and the
Astor children o'f the same generation
fifty-three. In the Morgan line there
are two families of four children, in

Alas, that it should be so, alas for
the perpetuation of this glorious na
tioa Balloting Here and Elsewhere.
A contemporary records the surprise
expressed by visiting French scientist
delegates to the Hygienic Congress,
when shown the little wooden edifices
where the free born American citizen
exercises his sovereign right as an
elector, either to register or to" vote.
They considered this rather "droll."
Droll it is from the viewpointof a
Frenchman, for they do these thing;
altogether different in "La Belle
France." There the voter ascends the
wide marble steps of the "Mairie" of
his arondissement (section of the city
or borough, as we should call it, if he
resides in a large city), or o'f the
"Hotel de Ville" (city hall), enters
its portals, passes through corridors
lined with statuary and mural decora
tions, and deposits his ballot in an urn.
This adds to the dignity of the solemn
occasion. Whereas, in this land of the
free and home of the brave ?
There are other particulars, too, in
which, as we believe, the French elec
toral system affords lessons we might
profitably take to heart For instance,
the ballot gives not only the addresses
of the candidates, but indicates defi
nitely their social status. The French'
man may choose between the former
army officer and a plumber, or between
an editor and a hod-carrier, or between
a Protestant pastor and a Socialist agi
tator. Here we are sometimes at a
loss to know whether the candidate we
select is a person of respectable stand
ing in the community or not-
finally, we commend the gracious
manner in which a successful 'Trench
candidate addresses his constituency
- a'fter election. He refrains from giving
out such interviews as ."I knew I
would win;" "We beat 'em to a fraz
xle," &c. Instead,'; he writes a procla
mation and posts it on the walls of his
bailiwick, something like this: "Once
more France is saved. Patriots, T thank
yoa! So far as lies in me I will 'be
true to all my pledget. Vive laPatrie!"

The assassination of Herman Rosen
thal, as he was about to give evidence
to District Attorney Whitman .against
the police partnership with crime, was
not a coincidence. Rosenthal was mur
dered "to stop his mouth." The public
believes that the murder was inspired
by some men in the police department
who wanted to protect themselves from
exposure. Rosenthal was to expose
Becker. Rosenthal was assassinated.
Big Jack" Zelig was to give testimony
that might send Becker to the electric
chair. And "Big Jack" Zejig did not
live to corroborate the story that Lieut
Becker had procured the murder of
Herman Rosenthal, by theatening to
send gunmen to the penitentiary unless
they did Rosenthal to death.
The story of a personal grudge be
tween the murderers and District At
torney Whitman's chief witness does
not satisfy. Nearly every one will con
clude that Zelig was not killed because
he had robbed a scamp of $18. Zelig,

turned up at the Morgue with only $2
in his pocket, had earned the hatred of.

across the end of the avenue, the sun

with bowed heads and downcast eyes,

see solitary figures with large straw

neighboring convent who are under no
