there are eight men who may by law
succeed seriatim to Colonel Roosevelt's
place should he die while In ollleo. It
would be u lemarUablc performance
(should the nnnrchlsl.s manage to kill
Mm and all the eight presidents In
posso at ono fell swoop. And suppose
they did. What would happen? If
congress were In session, It would pass
nn emergency mcasuie lustnnter ap
pointing somebody president pro tern,
nrrd till n special election could be
called to elect a president. If congress
wero not in session, It would get Itself
together in live days and do the same
thing, somebody acting on his own
motion as president while congress
was getting itbclf together Of coure
thero is no provision In the constitu
tion or laws for the performances
which I have mentioned, but tho law
of self preservation is the first law of
nature. Wo would act on It, and cicry
body would acquiesce In the proceed
ings ns necessary and proper.
In the case of crowned heads tho
nssasslnntlon of the reigning sover
eigns and their immediate possible
successors does nothing for the aboli
tion of government, for In ulmost ev
ery case thcio are scores of persons In
being who may lawfully succeed to
the throne. In Oreat Britain and fier
mrtny thero must bo hundreds, for tho
Brunswlckers and Ilohenzollerns are
prolific folks. President Roosevelt
cannot charge them with race suicide.
Czar Nicholas also has numerous blood
relations who are in tho line of succcs
skip. Ho is not n great monarch, but
he does his best according to his lights,
which, it must bo confessed, are borne
wiiat dim and nickering. lie Is not
cruel as czars go. lie Is a icformer
so far as he knows how to be und so
far ns ho Is permitted to bo by cir
cumstances and his advisers. So was
his grandfather, Alexander II. He Is
known in history ns "tho liberator"
becanso ho freed the serfs. Tho nihil
ists murdered him at the very moment
when ho was about to sign n paper
granting many new privileges to thu
Russian people. That paper was never
(signed, for ho was succeeded by his
gloomy, savage and tyrannical fcon,
Alexander III., who wns a leactlonnry
oft the most pronounced type. So 'by
the death of a liberal czar the Rus
sians fell out of the frying pan Into
the lire. So in nil human probability It
will be, to n certain extent at least, if
tliey succeed in nssasslnatlng Nicho
las, It's a grent pity that all tho an
nrchlsts on the face of the earth could
not bo rounded up and either hanged I
of? Imprisoned for life at hard labor.
Ifjthe present gang could be utterly
extirpated, It would bo some consider

Tho Buckeye Warwick.
These be parlous times, my masters
especially In Ohio, where men and
thfngi nro sizzling hot. Tho view there
isJcaleldoscople. Now you see It and
now you don't. Six months ago it
seemed that Senator Joseph Benson
F5Vnker hnd tho Ohio world in a sling.
Then Taft stock began to rise. Then
ltwa3 pip and tut U betwixt them. I
Then, when deorgo B. Cox, tho boss of
Cincinnati and of tho state, declared i
for ids ancient enemy, Secretary Taft, '
tho Jig appeared to bo tip with Senator
Fornker, but ho kicks at being handed I
over bound hand and foot to his oppo- I
mints. But Senator .Koiaker may kick
asjimuch ns ho pleases, and It will do
him little good, for Georgo II. Cox is" tho
Buckoyo Warwick, 1'or years ho bus
mqdo and linmmlo United States i-ena-torn,
representatives in congress, gov
ernors, Judges and minor olllcers After
the Republican rout in Ohio in -IbO".
Cox published u statement that ho was
out ot politics for keeps. Nobody be
Huved him then, nnd now ho has open
ly'rcsumed business nt tho old stand
nnd aspires to bo a president maker.
Tfiith to toll, he helped considerably hi
Bending McKInley to thu White House.
H was cheek by Jowl with Marcus
Alouzo Ilnnua In J81M and again In
J0))0. Hanna Is In his grave, but Cox
is still In the land of the living, cour
ageous, lesourecfiil, ambitious and
muster of (ho Ohio situation. That
Cox bhoiild throw tho weight of his In
fluence in favor ot Taft, whoso Akron
speech in 100.1 in denunciation of Cox
and all his works, Is ouo of the most
extraordinary developments o tho
extraordinary era in which wo live ami
is unother illustration of tho truth of
tha old cnylng that "politics mako.i
ntrnngo bedfellows." That Cox should
bo;n presidential Warwick bhould fur
nish lovers of tho republic much food
for reflection, for it must never bo for
jroton that tho Ci. O. I arrogates
fnsely to itself all intelligence, patriot
lsi and civic righteousness, juoshig ns

tho rlilef npostlo of purity nnd light
Though Kortiker knows that Cox's lat
est pronuiiclameuto settles the presi
dential nomination, he is game, his
blood is up, and he will probably light
on to the end tooth and nail and there
by glvo Taft and his adherents bo
much trouble In bagging the Buckeye
delegation that they cannot do enough
missionary work in other states to final
ly capture the presidential nomina
tion for the secretary of war. "Sweet
Is revenge!" which nobody since the
death of T,ord Byron understands bet
ter than docs your Ohio politician, it
will not bu all smooth sailing for Secre
tary Taft of Ohio by nny means. Sen
ator Kornker possesses certain ele
ments of strength from which he can
not be divorced. All men In politics
are not fickle and deceitful. Koraker has
u lio-tt of friends who will light for him
to the last ditch.
But this Toraker-Taft feud has
wrought a dizzy mlxup In Ohio poll
ties. Thero Is Ocncral-Senntor Dick,
for instance, whooping it up for I'or
aker to beat the band, not becnuve he
is so fond of Fornker, but because he
Is fond of his own senatorial toga.
Last year circumstances forced them to
light In pairs, for the danger that then
confronted one confronted the oilier,
and they Avon out. Dick seems now to
fear that If I'oraker loses this light he
(Dick) may be forced (o walk the plank,
for Ohio Is full of ambitious statesmen
who aspire to the senate. Dick Is n
valuable ally, for he is the understudy
of Senator lliinna and resldunry lega
tee of his political estate. He Is the
head center of what Is left of the old
Hanna machine, and, while ouo of the
chief functions of that machine was to
light Fornker so long as Hanna lived,
It Is now at I'oraker's command. Dick
is chairman of the executive commit
tee of the Republican slate committee,
a wheel within n wheel, Imperlum hi
huperlo. He called n Republican meet
ing to boost Foraker. Finding out
that tho meeting was likely to boost
Taft Instead of Foraker ho calleddt off,
thereby making confusion worso con
founded. Ono result of the Fornker-Tnft feud
In that the Ohio Democrats are pluck
ing up courago and aro now figuring
on electing u Democrat to succeed For
nker in tho senate, a consummation
devoutly to bo wished. They havu
plenty of good senatorial Umber.
Tho Case of Oklahoma.
President Roosovelt will act very un
wisely If ho yields lo tho adlce of
political buccaneers who aro trying to
kenp Oklahoma out of tho Union on
inostlllinsy pretexts. The American
people love Justice-, and they know that
a million bravo pioneers nro entitled
to constitute a stnto. Under the above
title tho Washington Herald, an Inde
pendent paper, recently published this
Tho grand old party must bo linrd up

Justify opposition lo the entry of that

eries nro made dally as to tho shortcom
ings ot tho new constitution. It hns not
mado sufficient provision for public du
cutlon, It Korrymandcis the Mate, und,
worse tlmn all. It beurs too liurd on cor
jioruUoim. These uro ostensible objections. Tho
mil ones aro oven less plausible, but
much more convincing from a party
standpoint. They nro that the nsw statn
uppi-ars to bo hopekssly Dcmorratln and
that If u stato government Is fcet up an
nriny ot federal employees would bo out
ol Jobs. Tlchlnd tho wliotrf nt'ltallqn against
statehood stand corporate Intel csts only
too unxlous to uvold tho regulation and
control which tho provisions of the con
stitution Riek to set up over them.
It seems almost inrndiblo that tho old
or President Itoosevolt and Becretury
Taft should bo Invoked to carry out a
conspiracy composed of such unsavory tl
t inents arid designed to accomplish such
m.tlodorouH purposes. Jt may bo that the
constitution frameis of OklaJioma huvo
made mlstukes, but thro Is ampin provl
hluii for their rcctinc-utlon. and, strangely
inotigh, tho case with which the consti
tution may be amended by means of tho
Initiative und referendum Is ono of tho
reasons given by tho conspirators for re
fusing udmlSRlou to the new state.
In fact, all tho objection)! so far mado
to tho constitution uro trivial and absurd.
New York Is so badly gerrymandered that
Governor Hughes cannot stand for It, but
he Is having considerable trnubln getting
the matter rectified. The dominant party
might better turn Its enginery ot reform
upon the Kmplro 8tate Instead of carping
ut the errors of our newest common
wealth. As to Railway Mall Pay.
Last winter Hon. Victor Murdock,
representative from the AVIehltn dis
trict of Kansas, started In energetical
ly to reduce tho pay for railway mail
service. Tho old scheme was to weigh "
tho mall for a cortntu number of days,
counting Sundays, to ascertain tho to
tal amount carried and then to divide
that nmotint by tho same number of
days minus tho Sundays to ascertoln
tho dully amount on which to huso tho
pay for tho ensuing four years. That
mndo tho divisor six, while Murdock
insisted that tho divisor should be sev
en, which would make a vast differ
nco in tho pay annually. He spoke
about it till ho, mndo everybody dizzy.
Falling to induco congress to tnko his
view, ho got Postmaster General Cor
telyou to issue an order to that effect.
Tho following telegram recently print
ed in the St. Louis OIobe-Deinocrnt
throws considerable light on tho outlro
Bubject of railway mull compensation;
Chicago, May 18 Tho recent action of
Burlington in cutting the rates on trans
continental mall to meet the competition

Important bearing upon the question at
mail compensation generally.
It la uald that th voluntary reduction
made by the llurltngtoh In, the rates Is
being seriously considered by the post
master general In determining whether
the total compensation received by the
railroads shall be reduced between J5,
COO.OOO and JU.OOO.OOO annually.
This fact became appurent, It Is stated,
last Wednesday, when u committee of
prominent rallroiul men called upon the
postmaster general with u ptitltlou link
ing him lo rescind the order requiring tho
total tonnago curried over a mall routo
for pne weik to be divided by seven In
stead of by six In arriving at the average

The chairman of the 'ominlttcu which
called upon the postmastir general was
V W lialdwln, assistant to President
I Inn Is of the Ilurllngton. It so happened
that Baldwin was ulsn the inun who con
voyed to the former poslmntter general
thu proposition by the Ilurllngton to cut
lis rates to meet the Hock Inland compe
tition. Tho postmaster general Is said to
havo Intimated that, In view of a volun
tary reduction, It might be difficult for
hint to bo convinced that tho mull pay
could not stand a general cut.
Watterson't Dark Horse
Marso Henry Watterson's presiden
tial dark hor.se iu likely lo become as
much of a mystery ns the Man In the
iron Mask If ho does not reveal his
Identity before long. Ho should get up
a guessing contest and charge III cents
a guess, thereby replenishing his ex
chequer. It Is now neck and neck be
twixt Mnrso Henry and Colonel John
Temple Oraves in creating sensations
as lo tho presidential nominations.
There aro not two more lovable or elo
qucnt men In America than this same
pair of grent southern editors, but In
this matter they seem to be taking it it
oratorical or editorial license! which Is
closely akin to the traditional poetical
license which bards in all ages and In
all climes have arrogated to them
selves. Visiting Statesmen.
Some little whllo ago It wan an
nounced that Mr. Speaker Cannon had
thrown aside the cores of statesman
ship as a garment and would spend his
vacation running a Danville bauk
while his son-in-law, the cashier, Is In
I'urope. But Undo Joe appears to bo
doing a good deal of visiting for a man

Mr. Vice I'resldeut Fairbanks, where

correspondents Jumped to tho conclu
sion that Undo .Too hnd agreed to get
out of the presidential Held and throw
his own strength to tho tnll Iloosler, a
report which caused the ambitious Illl
uolsan to mo language too vigorous to

likely to niako hltn "swear like our

of n technical violation of tho law not
so much because hu had violated the

over u ilock after 0 o'clock. Ho had
hnd something to 6ay nbout balloons,
but It did not seem rcasonablo that he
would select the evening for milking
an usceusloii. When 7 o'clock had ur
rhed the cook came up again to say;
"I know what's happened, ma'am,
tho same ns it I hud been there with
both eyes wide open."
Cook Was Wise.
"He has probably bcon detained on

"It's weeplug I urn over his sad fate,

Mts. Bowser feared the worst, but
wouldn't admit It, and as u reward

He came nlong down from the car with
an Import nut air, and he waved his
hand to her while yet hulf a block

was further shown when ho turned iu
ut the gate. Ouo of the ornaments of
tho front yard Is a stone dog. He

buck and slapped his leg In Inughter,
"Mr. Bowser, what does this mean'"
she demanded as ho came up tho steps.
"Come In 'cr house, and I'll tell you
all about It," ho said as hu passed In.
It was n cold, deadly fact that he
was "sprung." His looks, his gait, his
