Hi last Campaign Speech.
Mr. Roosertlt, at any rate, has good
cause to be proud of the thundering re
ception accorded him when he appeared
"Wednesday night in Madison Square
Garden, New York; but, of course, it
is well understood that the cheering
nd applause, for the most part, was
due to his lucky escape from the bullet
of the assassin.
He and his followers well might
wisn mat ne never bad made any
speeches other than this last one, so
free from personalities. Had he pre
served this propriety all along on the
stump, he might be stronger to-day
with the nation that admires certain
of his qualities, but abhors his selfish
ness and radicalism, begotten partly
from a desire for personal revenge.
Mr. Roosevelt, to put it mildly, is
too impatient with the established or
der o"f things in this country. This
once more showed itself in his speech
when he said:
We brush aside the arguments of
those who seek to bar action by the
repetition of some formula about
"States' rights." or about "the history
.of liberty" being "the history of lim
itation of governmental power." or
about the duty of the courts finally to
determine the meaning of the Consti
tution. " The colonel is nothing if not cour
ageous, and credit is due him for
fearlessly reminding his hearers and
the public on the eve of election of
the threat his candidacy contains
against the independency of the ju
diciary, that is, against the stability of
our established government. But this
impatience, this haste to be "it" at any
-cost, is thathich so eminently has
"become known as Rooseveltism. While
every one heartily agreed with him
when he exclaimed: "Let us have an
equal opportunity lor all, a great
.many have become skeptical as to
promises from that quarter, in the
light of past performances
Sympathy ought not and will not
Result of Sherman's Death.
The death of the Vice President
gives a sudden interest to the question
of a successor, either as a candidate on
the Republican ticket, or for the con
sideration of the electoral college in
case no nomination is made. We un
derstand that the Republican National
Committee will meet on Novem
ber 12 (there was not sufficient
time to do so before next Tues
aay owing to tne distance some
of its members will have to travel) "to
select a candidate to be recommended
for the votes of the Republican elec
tors. The National Committee is well
within its rights in doing so, and this
means that the office o'f Vice Presidents
will he vacant until March 4 next, as
indeed at was when Vice President
Hendricks died, and when Garfield
and McKinley were assassinated and
mar mates oecame tneir successors.
The plain truth is that in this republic
tie office of Vice President is but of
secondary consideration. Neither diplo
matically nor in an administrative ca
pacity is he prominent or takes part in
the councils of the President.
Should the Republican party have a
majority of the votes in the electoral
college, the man the National Commit
tee would select will become Vice
President on March 4, when Mr. Taff
would enter upon his second term.
Mr. Sherman's Congressional ca
reer was not very conspicuous, though
as a "man of less than thirty years of
age he had succeeded in making such
an impression upon his large home
community, that he was chosen Mayor
of Utica. He accomplished in youth
that which many a man would be
proud to have done in later years. In
.Utica he unquestionably was a man of
f note in law, business, and politics.
.Everj body who knew him liked him.
"Sunny Jim" was by no means a mis
nomer or a campaign by-word. He

One thing is certain: The present
conflict, after setting ablaze all of the
Balkan states, Greece and Turkey,
will produce infinitely more bloodshed
and misery than the whole of the suf
fering endured by past generations of
Macedonians. Turkey realizes this just
as well as the rest of Europe. It
shares the apprehensions of its West
ern neighbors and to the credit of the
Sublime Porte it must be recorded that
the Sultan is demanding only the pres
erration of the Ottoman national dig
nity and independence, in which de
mands Turkey is cheerfully supported
by Russia on one side and by Great
Britain on the other.
We have repeatedly explained why.
Should Russia be permitted to hold
the Dardanelles, then farewell British
supremacy on the Levant, farewell
Suez Canal control, the hort route
to India and to the British Asiatic
and South Sea possessions. Wherefore
England must befriend the Turk, must
keep him safe in Constantinople, must
let him retain the key to the Bospho
rus, the Dardanelles, the Aegean Sea,
and the Levant
And Germany? The Turk is a good
customer. He buys Krupp armaments.
German trade flourishes all over the
Ottoman Empire: The Porte has given
Germany very valuable railway conces
sions all the way out to Bagdad. And.
besides, the Kaiser knows that Turkey,
though perennially tyrannical and brutal
in her religious fanaticism, has "a leg
to stand upon" in her refusal to live
up to the stipulations of the treaty of
Berlin and of the second Hague con
ference, because the other signatories
did exactly the same thing
Why Gold Makers Fail.
When an authority on chemistry so
eminent as Sir William, Ramsey, now
delivering a course of lectures at the
Johns Hopkins University, states as a
probability that gold can be won from
baser metals, the mind naturally re
curs to the stories of the old alche
mists. The reflection follows that after
all, their labors were not in pursuit of
the will-o'-vvisp, until the scientists
further remark is noted: "It can be
done, I fear, only at such high cost as
to make it commercially valueless."
It is an established fact that gold
is contained in sea water, but in such
minute particles as to render the cost
of procuring it beond the value of
the amount recovered. This fact did
not prevent a New England "get-rich-quick"
man some fifteen years ago from
mulcting a number of his fellow-citizens
of several hundred thousand dol
lars over the "gold-in-sea-water craze,"
the sensational expose of which for a
time filled columns of the newspapers.
It is "the grain of truth," which so
often makes the mischief. As it was
shown later the deluded promoter orig
inally was a victim of a swindler, who
palmed off on him real gold, supposedly
taken from an apparatus which ex
tracted gold dust from tea water. The
company in which he was induced to
act as the bell-wether in the procession
of stock buyers, as its legacy to the
numerous eager investors, left some
beautifully engraved certificates.
The basis on which the swindle was
conducted had the grain of truth at
its foundation which enabled it for a
time to succeed.
