A PROGRESSIVE LONE HAND.
In a few impressive words of admonition against
entangling alliances Colonel Roosevelt breathes the
spirit and wisdom of the Progressive Party.
No deals nor dickers anywhere. A lone hand for
the Progressives in every legislature, in Congress, is
a winning hand for the party to play. Let thcDemo
crats and Republicans do all the dealing and dicker
ing. Their machines have the interests of special
privilege in common. The Progressive program
is to stand aloof, "keeping unflinchingly to the prin
ciples we put down in the last campaign and showing
by our works the faith that is in us."
That's the way to talk; that's the way to act!
Along those lines the Progressive cause must ad
vance with increasing momentum.
He was an old man with a well-trimmed beara
and tired eyes. His clothes were pressed. His linen
was spotless. His bearing had in it that touch of
subtle gentility which we associate always in our
minds with the defeated and the inefficient. He stood
patiently outside an office door and waited for ad
mission so that he might seek work, the kind of
clerical work, probably, over which such men as he
have wasted the "years that the locust hath eaten."
And as he stood without that door, so had he stood,
perchance, without the doors of fortune; a patient
and troubled spirit amazed in a wordless way by
the problems 2! life and never questioning the de
crees of providence.
t LOS ANGELES' NEWEST NEAR-HORROR.
Only the other day The Times urged, as a protec
tion to the public, that making and trafficking in high
explosives and concealable weapons ought to be
strictly regulated. It did not take long for the pro
posal to receie point and emphasis in the nerve
racking story from Los Angeles of a maniac's at
tempt to blow up a whole city block.
The public has not recovered from its horror
over the Los Angeles Times crime; it is reading day
by day the revelations of the nation-wide dynamite
conspiracy of which een that astounding crime was
but an incident. Only a few weeks have lapsed
since the attempt of a madman on Colonel Roose
velt's life. These are only high spots in the pro
cession of tragic events that almost daily emphasize
the necessity for rigid measures of protection against
the possibility of such crimes.
The unrestricted making and selling of deadly
contrivances and high explosives; the fact that men
may cart these instruments of death and horror about
the country with impunity; the increasing disposi
tion to cowardly crime of the sort that these instru
mentalities make possible; these things must be re
formed or the menace to life, property, and order
will go on steadily increasing.
NO BATHTUB IMMUNITY.
In the latest of the long line of decisions con
struing and clarifying the scheme of the Sherman
law, the United States Supreme Court again shows,
as it so often has shown, that no harmful restraint
of trade can be carried on without violating the
terms of the anti-trust statute.
The Bathtub trust sought to shield it, unlawful
price agreements and other means of monopoly be
hind the rights conferred to it as the owner of
licenses under the patent law. The Supreme Court
unanimously brushes aside this plea of immunity
with the sharp remark that "the agreement clearly
transcended what was necessary to protect the use
of the patent or the monopoly which the law con
ferred upon it," and that "they accomplished a re
straint of trade condemned by the Sherman law."
The subterfuge so condemned was always trans
parent. But it is to such feeble pleas that conspir
ators in restraint of trade are reduced by a con
tinuous process of Supreme Court condemnation of
technicalities resorted to in efforts to cheat the
Sherman law. There is little left for the lawbreakers
to depend on when they are called to the bar. It will
not be long until, when they are caught "with the
goods on, they will plead guilty and throw them
selves on the mercy of the court.
ANOTHER DYING FALLACY.
And now it is the doctrine of the "economic in
terpretation of history" which seems about to be
tnrown into the junk heap of discredited fallacies to
keep company with the "law" of "supply and de
mand." The lack of validity in that "law" has been
demonstrated with the force of increasing conviction
ever since the application of steam power to the
business of modern civilization, but the "economic
interpretation of history" has demanded a longer
and a more subtle experience to awaken the com
mercial world of this country to a realization of its
For this method of "explaining" the development
of cities and the existence of great trading centers
depended upon the acceptance of the theory that
those cities and centers were the result of purely nat
ural advantages under the operation of which New
York, for instance, came into being and multiplied
because it sat in ihe lap of a great harbor accessible
to the sea route from Europe, and St. Louis because
it lies at the bend of a long river where the fur
traders thought it convenient to land with their wares.
But, of recent years, the activities of the business
men of Boston and Kansas City and Galveston and
Seattle have been jolting the "economic interpreta
tion or nistory in a disrespectful way and the jolt
has been getting so much "punch" into it that the
members of the Merchants' Association of New York
arc actually organizing to "foster the trade and wel
fare" of that city.
When the merchants of New York are realizing
that their trade has not come to them through the
"natural situation" of their town or heaven's appro
val of their virtues, the "dismal science" is on its
A CHRISTMAS APPEAL.
TJI5Tia?BID THEY IF .A. L L
Please, Indies, do your Christinas shop
ping now. Not that it makes any difference
to the shops, hut it does make a world of
difference to the women who work in tlioni
It's a splendid theme that we colehrate
Jit Cliristmns and it is our custom hero to
celebrate it greatly; but it has its burden of
service as well as its benefits of gifts, and we
can make its spirit sweeter by giving thought
today to that business of Christmas buying
which most of us are prone to overlook until
These young women of the stores who
stand just now as patient sentinels to your
wishes have some fjmcies of their own to
follow at this time of year, some modest
hopes to realize that might seem, did you
think of them, sublime in their simplicity.
If you make it so they will work until the
line of midnight on Christmas eve to seo
that you are satisfied; and if, by shopping
now, you make it otherwise they will be not
unmindful of your forethought.
So, for the sake of these young women
of the stores, we mnko this sentimental ap
peal quite frankly to your sentiments and, il
you caro to heed it, this Christmas spirit
will be a larger thing that each of us can
hold in common property.
THE CONVICTION OF THE GUNMEN.
It is necessary to go back a few years to the
long-drawn-out travesty on criminal procedure which
was afforded by the Thaw trials to appreciate fully
what a progression is marked by the conduct of the
cases growing out of the Rosenthal murder. It is a
cause for national satisfaction that so much of im
provement can have been effected in so short a time.
The trials of Becker first, and of the four gunmen
later, were not made public spectacles to grace a
metropolitan holiday. There seemed to be in the
mind of the court and the prosecuting lawyers alike
the simple purpose of getting at the truth and secur
ing a verdict based on it. Justice Goff and District
Attorney Whitman are entitled to divide honors and
credit for what has been done. The district attorney
has demonstrated what directness and vigor in the
pursuit of a case will accomplish.
Even more important than that these five men
have been convicted, is the fact that the underworld
of New York has been given a demonstration that
systems, pulls, alliances, and money will not stay
the hand ofjustice. The circumstances surrounding
these cases constituted an awful revelation of the
possible deeps to which organized crime could drag
down a great community. It seemed doubtful if the
orderly execution of the law could be possible in such
a situation. Yet out of this morass of corruption and
depravity there has come a most signal proof that
law and justice cannot be overturned in an American
community. It has been an inspiring and encouraging
lesson to the whole nation.
It is to be admitted that the demonstration is not
yet complete. The convicted men have, yet before
them the possibilities of appeals, retrials, and further
appeals. Consistent with a proper adherence to the
legal proprieties that safeguard the rights of every
accused person, it is most to be hoped that the icst
of these proceedings may be as prompt, business
like, and efficacious as the Business that has been
transacted in Justice Goff's court.
HOW MR. BRYAN MAY HELP.
William Jennings Bryan's retirement to Florida
for the winter ought not to be so cynically interpreted
as an act unfriendly to Mr. Wilson. He may really
mean it as a help.
Mr. Bryan could well calculate that with Speaker
Clark and Representative Underwood at the head of
a formidable force of anti-Bryanites at Washington,
party harmony might be furthered by his absence
from the council; while if he undertook the direction
of Democratic destinies in Congiess lie would get
suinc piciiy piiiiii auuua uuu ciiiumniss We new
President. If this is the reckoning of the Nebraskan
it ould be justified by what the public knows of the
bitterness of Champ Clark toward tho man by whom
he wab hamstrung in the Baltimore convention, and
by the memory of what happened to Bryan when he
went to a savage clinch with Oscar W. Underwood,
the Democrats of the House acting as umpires and
putting the Alabama statesman on top.
Incidentally the Commoner's withdrawal to the
South will save him from the pest of office-hunters
who will want his influence with Mr. Wilson in pursuit
of the places for which the faithful arc already
clamoring with a hunger whetted by sixteen years of

OF WHITE HOUSE
AT CLUB SESSION
Members Disagree Over
Charge Title Is One of
FIRST ON SENATE'S
A discussion. In which Fred Flshback.
clerk of tho Senate Commltteo on Rules,
declared that the term "White House"
was one of contempt, nnd should not
bo applied to tho home of tho Presi
dent, was held last night In tho rooms
of the Washington Club after Mrs
Abby Ounn Baker had read a paper
on that historic mansion. Mrs. Baker
said tho White House now stands on
what was the farm of David Burns
lust after the Revolution Burns gave
a portion of his farm to tho govern
ment for the White House grounds,
and sold a portion of It.
When tho matter of a design for tho
tt'hlto Itouso came up, a prlzo of $000,
or Its equivalent In tho shape, of a
medal, was offered for tho architect
who turned In the best design. James
Hoban, a )oung Irishman who had
come to America to design the Stato
house for South Carolina, was urged
bv Governor Laurens, of South Car
olina, to submit a design for tho White
House. Hoban submitted a design
which was selected, and received the
ptlze. Ho took iSM of it In a medal,
and tho remainder In money.
Mrs. Baker showed that a great deal
of the original walls of tho building
aro still In place, and wera not de
stroyed when the British burned the
White llouso during the war of lffl2.
Part of tho old structuro still shows
signs of smoko gotten on that occa
sion Most of tho woodwork Is ma
hogany All of tho china and hard
ware In the White House when John
Adams moved In was brought over
from England, some of which is still
In the tt'hlto House, collection of china,
Mrs. Adams complained very bitterly
after she moved In because, although
tho house was completed, there was no
way bv means of which to summon ser
vants to her. To remedy this tho com
mltteo In charge of the White llouso
wrote to Alexandria, then a much larger
place than tt'ashlngton, for eight or
ten bells, which vvcro nnall) Installed
for tho comfort of Mrs Adams
In tho beginning Mrs Baker nnd
thought to make her address treat ex
clusively of the alterations of the tt'hlto
House, but there was so much of In
terest In the welectlon nnd first building
of the tt'hlto House! she dwelt on that,
and did not touch upon tho alterations
After tho nddress tho members of the
club discussed tho matter of naming
tho White House, with lively interest.

William B Hicks, charged with speed
ing an automobile, was ftni'd J5 by

Single Presidential Term
Will Be Pushed by Works
In spite of the fact that little lcglKU

session, the Senate Is looking forward
to an extremely busy winter.
Tho case of Judge Robert W. Arch-
bald, who will be trlej on the impeach
ment of the House, will bo the first
Important matter considered. Nobody
knows how long this will take. The
Senate will reconvene as a court of
Impeachment at 12:30 Tuesday, Decem
ber 2 The House managers are ex
pected to submit a reply to the answer
of Archbald, filed about the close of
last session. More than 100 wltnemes
will testify. Tho caso will not be con
cluded. It Is expected, until well along '
Tho proposed constitutional amend,
ment for a single term for the Presi
dent will b pushed by Senator Works
and Bemtor Cummins. President Taft
and William J. Bryan, having cotno
out for the one-term Idea, additional
Interest will bo given this question
apeakcr Clark and Leader Underwood
are for tho one-tcrm plan, It Is under
stood, and so If It passes the Benito
It will douhlle-ss pass tho House.
Tho Ken)ou-Shcppard bill to shut
liquor out of dry territory is a special
order In the Sennto for December 17.
It probably will pass the Senate, but
Us chanci'H In the House are doubtful.
The agricultural education hill win be
pressed bv Senator Page of Vermont,
and the Department of Health bill will
bo urged bv Senator Owen.
Appropriation bills will be disposed
of largely In committee, nnd will have
comparatively short hhrlft In the Senate
Senator Cummins will try to get the
civil service retirement bill considered,
but It probably will be Impossible to
force It to passage at the short session.
