The Gaynor Plan.
Mayor YV.illiam J. Gaynor, of New
York, who was himself a judge and
a most scholarly and accomplished
one, has given expression to an idea
which is well worth contemplation.
The mayor thinks that, in cases where
the validity of a statute is in ques
tion, no law should be declared un
constitutional, or where the vote is
four to three or some such ratio as
that, it is the mayor's idea that the
statute should be held valid notwith
standing the preponderance of judic
ial opinion against it.
As said above, this thought is well
worth consideration. It is the well
settled rule in this country that stat
utes should be Construed liberally in
favor of their constitutionality. Where
there is a doubt the Tloubt must be
resolved in favor of the validity of
Now, where five judges vote on
one side of a question au,i four vote
on the other side, there would seem
to be considerable doubt about that
question. And if a grave constitu
tional matter arises and four men on
the supreme bench of the United
States supreme court men of the
highest type of judicial wisdom and
who have been selected for their em
inent character no less than lor their
commanding ability, if four of these
men, after due examination, decide
on one side of that question, that
would seem to raise considerable doubt
as to what the law in that particular
ease is. And where there is a doubt
the rule is to resolve that doubt in
favor of the law.
AVe require unanimous verdicts in
jury cases, so it would seem there
would be nothing revolutionary in
requiring decisions by substantial ma
jorities in questions involving the
constitutionality of statutes.
There may be' flaws in the Gaynor
idea, of course. It is merely sug
gested that it is worthy of consid
eration. Rut at all events, looking at
it from "the angle of whatever ob
jection it may call forth, how much
it is to be preferred to the supremely
foolish plan of submitting questions
of constitutional law to popular vole.
Mr. Taft's Lead.
Nearly one-third of the delegates
to the republican national convention
have been elected. President , Taft's
load in the contest for the nomina
tion has been lengthened by the ac
tion taken In many states and dis
tricts last week. One hundred and
forty-six elections were reported last
week not including Alaska. Mr. Taft
got 130 delegates and Alaska's two
gave him 132 of the total of US for
The universality of the support
given the president is evidenced by
decisive victories for his followers in
states as wide apart as New York,
Mississippi, Indiana md Colorado.
County elections in Iowa also assured
liis control of the statu convention
and of a majority ;of Iowa's delega
tion to1 Chicago. Out of less than a
third of the full membership of the
convention Mr. Taft now has almost
one-half of the votes necessary to
assure his nomination. There is no
reason to think that his present ad
vantage will not be retained or in
creased as the other two-thirds of
the delegates are chosen
"Who says the press has no influ
ence? When Adam Littlepage, who
represents a West Virginia district,
went to congress two yuirs ago he
wrote an autobiography in which be
coneludively showed himself to be one
of the greatest and most lovable men
that ever appeared in Washington.
Also, in his first speech which ap
peared ,in the Congressional Record,
he wedged in more "laughter and ap
plause" than the bouse usually in
dulges in in rm entire session. So
green was Adam and so childlike in
his innocence that he supposed no
body would know what, in fact pretty
nearly everybody knows, that the work
was done by himself. But Adam
waked ni) the next morning to, find
himself ridiculous. The newspaper
sharps jot hold of the autobiography
ami the speech; and by the time
they had published extnu-ts from each
with a few choice embellishments
Adam was loaded with fame, but of
a different sort from that which he
had tried to create for himself. As a
result, his autobiography this year
consists of three modest lines, and
whenever he addresses the house,
which is rarely, now, the "laughter
lind applause" in the Record are con
spicuous by their absence. Great is
the power of the scribe's pencil.
There will be universal regret over
the untimely death of Calhraith Rod
gers. the aviator who was killed Wed
nesday at Long Beach. The accom
plishment of the historic feat of mak
ing the first ocean-to-ocean flight
j was sufficient to give Rodgers fame
of the most substantial kind; but in
addition to that he was the possessor,
of qualities that made him one .of
the most admired of :dl the Ameri
can aviators. His tragic death has
cast the shadow of gloom over the

San DIcgo citizens have gently but
firmly escorted the Industrial Work

to them that it will be regarded as

the agitators is at least a novel one

It seems certain the English coal
miners have voted against resuming
work. It also seems certain that they
will resume work, nevertheless; in
fact thousands of them have already
done so. It is an anomalous situa

witnessed in the ranks of organized

La Kollette wins by a two to one

more than a two to one 'vote in his

not strong enough to get the "pro

A detachment of Mexican rt-bils

Did you know that the nicest, jui
ciest steak sold in the markets of

cut from a young steer are fatter,

and profit by their knowledge.
