STEADY ALL TOGETHER
Reading numerous newspapers from
all over the country, representing all '
parties and factions, The Examiner j
has yet to find any expression of gen- j
uinely sincere grief at the result of
the late election. Some Republican
papers are, apparently, hoping for the
worst; they do not blame the Demo
crats, but take out their ill humor on
the Progressive party. Progressive
papers are satisfied they "beat Taft"
and now they are. going to take up the
task of whipping the Democracy in
So far, the markets have not reflec
ted the slightest unfavorable influence
as a result of the election. Evidently,
the industrial and commercial inter
ests of the nation are willing to take
a chance at Wilson and the Democrat
ic party, and they don't propose to get
scared until somebody makes a bad
face. This time, the financial inter
ests had eveidently agreed to sit tight,
and all through the closing week of
tho campaign, and immediately after
election, the bank people all over the
country maintained the pose of the
Sphinx with a chessycat smile they
knew, and they weren't afraid or a bit
fussed about it
Here is the way Henry Clews, an old
and shrewd observer in The Street,
sizes up the immediate political fu
ture: "Radical departures are highly
Improbable. Mr. Wilson is an evolu
tionist, not a revolutionist. His party
is likely to be promptly divided into
radical and conservative camps, with

an influential Republican minority,
capable of throwing its weight on eith
er side, so that extreme action will be
difficult. It is not likely that any seri
ous inroad will be made in the tariff,
beyond moderating the extreme sched
ules. The tariff is no longer a strictly
party issue, and tho Democratic party
now includes an influential protection
ist element which would join tho Re
publicans in opposing extreme meas
ures. Revenue necessities will limit
downward cuts in rates."
Continuing his timely and .discrim
inating discussion of tho present busi
ness situation at home and abroad, Mr.
Clews says that
"All indications point to a period of
exceptional business activity. Mone
tary conditions are improving, and the
iron and steel industry continues on
its record-breaking course. The busi
ness booms in England and Germany
show no signs of cessation, and, sinc&
our present industrial activity is part
ly dependent upon a worldwide devel
opment, there is the gerater reason
for its longer continuance. Tho for
eign trade of both England and Ger
many is growing by leaps and bounds,
and it is highly satisfactory to note
that the United States is winning its
share, our exports of steel products
having grown tremendously the last
few months. In both London and
Paris, and other European financial
centers, there has been a marked
change of sentiment toward American
securities. The success of Mr. Wilson
has been favorably received abroad,

TRIBUTE TO HOMER LEA
Homer Lea, the Los Angeles boy
who, at the age of 36, had become a
world figure, died last week at his
homo in Ocean Park. It was Lea who
won the revolution in China for the
young Chinese. For years he had had
the dream of a free China and just
at the time when his dreams were
realized ho was taken away.
The story of this young man's life
is fuller of romance and adventure
than a novel. A world-power and a
recognized military genius at 36 marks
him as one man in a century. More

As a youth, he expected to become

That the agitation against the "tur
key trot" and similar gymnastic
dances has, at last, taken a sensible
trend which promises reform instead
of mere discussion, is shown by a dis
patch from Chicago, In which city 72
dancing masters have gone to the root
of the whole trouble by barring rag
time music from their halls and classes
and without the so-called ragtime,
the dances which have been borroweu
from the burlesque theatres and dance

109 ;speedy declino in the "Oh! Oh! Oh!"
75 i brand of alleged harmony, which has
been as directly responsible for cor
rupting the dance as it has been for
degrading music. Ragtime is to music
what the dime novel is, or rather was,
to literature. It contaminates those
who listen to it, spoils the taste for
good music, and corrupts the ancient
art of dancing.

Men who acquire more or less prom-
