In his speech of acceptance Judge Parker
dwelt feelingly upon his superior devotion to
the Constitution, and told the country, what
every schoolboy learns from his first lessons in
civics, how the powers of government are dis
tributed among the three co-ordinate depart
ments. He pointed out that occasionally, by
reason of unnecessary or Impatient agitation for
reforms, the limitations placed upon the de
partments \rere disregarded. He said that ex
ftcutives had employed powers not belonging to
thaw, but be failed to tjpeclfj that chief among
them \ras Thomas Jefferson, who himself de
flared that be bad gone beyond his powers in
haying Louisiana and agreeing to Incorporate it
Into th« Union. Judge Parker did net find it

cratic party, not In Its more recent days of in

to accomplish Its purpose. let the constitu
tional Judge Parker joined iv this war on the
Connitntion and the Supreme Court, and voted
for Mr. Bryan and the income tax. Can he
rcaUj take himself seriously in his pose as the
scrupulous defender of the Constitution?
But perhaps he does not think the income tax
was really unconstitutional, and his vote for
Brysn and the iacotoe tax was in strict har
mony with his judicial principles. That theory

"wien it was dimcult to point out the pro
•^vlsioae said to be offended against la their
"enactment." Now, the only important na-
Honal act set aside by the United states Su
preme Court in recent rears was the income

ssmb«t la academic platltuQe?. be must have

ttT«3egii is all ss«re pretend, it must be that hi*
tvarofm-bnemas the income tax
with the fundamental law; otherwise he would
not cling to it. In doing so, despite &n ad
verse court decision, he has Democratic prece
dents. His party has always stood for tne
rijht of nullification, and in now preaching the
doctrine that Supreme Court decisions of un
eonstitutionality may themselves be unconstitu
tional he Is in harmony with his vote in J tr| o to
pack the court.
Soruo of Judge Parker's supporters have dis
covered Uiat his single term declaration has
made - 'a profound impression." "The Philadel
phia Record" finds in it "new evidence that no
•mistake has been made by the Democratic
"party. It has chosen v leader who leads." It
thinks his pledge "litts his candidacy out of the
ordinary run of politics." "The New-York
Evening Post" reprints tins with signs of ap
proval, and itself hymns the praise of its candi
date for "so magnlncent a 6tarjd." It glories in
the reasons for his action, "which have so aston
ished the professional politicians."
This Is all eiceedingly pretty. But did either
"The Record" or -The Evening Post" pay Just
tribute to the Bimller action of Mr. Bryan? Did
>dge to accept only one u-rui In l s "s re
peated in 1900, for reasons exactly sim.lar to
Judge Parker's, make "a profound impression":
Did "Hie Evening Post," in its well recognized
efforts always to be fair, compliment him on
"so macrniment a stand"'' Did it find anythiug
In his arguments Which "astonished tie profes
siunal politicians'*? Did "Tne Record" think
his pledge lifted "his candidacy out of the ordi
nary run of politics" or discover that in naming
Mr. Bryan the Democratic party had made "'no
ihistake,'" but had "elioseu a leader who leads"?
The present leader seems to be one who fol
lows. Not to delve into ancient history, he had
President Hnyes, President Cleveland and Mr.
Bryan as his tutors in the evils of a second
term, and Mr. Bryan's pledge was not a whit
:udin? and "magnificent" than his own.
But poor Mr. Bryan, having more kuks than
ha'pennies coming to him from the present Par
ktT choir— though not from Judge Park'
t>elf, who was a good Bryanite e\en when David
B. Hill sulked and 'Blue Eyed Bill:
bolted— was treated cavall< fly and bis 1< tiers
were ridiculed by them. What Is magnificent
iv Judge Parker was demagogy In Mr. Bryan.
Mr. Bryan's reasoning, which was not thought
worth discussing, appears ie Judge Parker evi
dence of preat and original statesmanship. The
proverb has it that love is blind, and when old
ladies fall in love it takes them uncommonly
The most significant feature of the breach be
tween France and Rome Is — if we may be per
mitted the paradox— lts Insignificance. We do
net mean that It Is or will be void of material
Importance, either to the French government
or to the Vatican, or, Indeed, to some third par
ties. On the contrary, as we shall see. it prom
ises results of much Importance. Its lack of
significance is in immediate International af
fairs, and also in the domestic affairs of France.
In them it produces scarcely a ripple of dis
turbance. That, we may pretty confidently say,
is something that would not have been pos
sible ten years ago, or at any time theretofore
within the last ten centuries. We do not know
that there is a more impressive exponent of the
newness of spirit that has coma upon the Eu
ropean world. To appreciate it we have only
to recall the familiar facts of the past. From
the time of St. Louis, and indeed long before.
through the ages of Valols and Bourbon, Rome
was supreme ill France. The strenuous sou of
Jeanne d'Albret could crush the Guises and
Mayenne, but at last even he yielded to the
Indefinable rule of the Triple. Crown and ad
mitted that Paris was worth a mass. Bona
parte could defy all Europe, but found' it essen
tial to make terms with the Pontiff whom he
bad exiled and imprisoned. Empire, and Res
toration, and Citizen King, and Republic, and
Empire again have come and gone, but Con
cordat has gone orr as if forever. Under a third
of a century of Third Republic It has endured,
despite the fulminatory rhetoric of the great
Gambetta and the remorseless calculation of
the intrepid Ferry. Yet to-day a quiet and un
pretentious school teacher, without prestige or
the passionate power of crucial occasion, pro
poses to sweep the whole system away forever
—for if swept p. way once it will be forever
—and France and th<> world acquiesce with no
more agitation than as though he had suggest
ed a revision of the carriage tax.
This fci^nificant insigniQcance of the episode
is to be regarded as marking, perhaps more
than anything else has done, the passing of the
Papal power as a factor in international poll
tics. Time was when Rome was the world's
centre of great diplomacy. Treaties were made,
alliances were formed and wars were declared
there. Nations were aligned with other na
tions, or were arrayed against them, accord
ing to their relationships with Rome. Nor was
it unreasonable, in theory, that It should be so.
The Church regarded itself, and was widely
regarded, as the supreme if not Indeed the
sole repository and boss of religion and mor
als, and therefore of political and civic as well
as of spiritual righteousness. in such concep
tion of its status and Its functions it was well
that it should be the International arbiter. In
the rude days of force and "divine right" in
Its most despotic form it was well that there
should be a visible and tangible concretion or"
divine authority to temper and to check the
wrath of man. Such was the fine theory of
Rome's dominance in the affairs of nations.
The Caw lay in the practice. For inevitably
the force that should have been purely moral
and spiritual became largely material and po
litical, and in that fact was the germ of its
decay. It was because they believed it to be
influenced by motives of political aggrandize
ment that governments, one by one. repudiated
Home. "Ye cannot serve God and Mammon."
To their mind, Boms could not be a power mak
ing for spiritual righteousness. and at the same
time for the ptiliti.-ai advantage of itself or of
some favored protege. When it made Itself a
political power it must be treated as omer such
powers, in peace v friend, iv war an enemy.
Such, rightly or wrongly, lias been the course
of other nations. Bach is the course of Prance
today. Rightly or wrongly, she has regarded
Rome as a meddler in her politics, and as a
hostile meddler. Time was when she euspect
ed at least a part of the Church of intriguing
for a Bourbon or Orleanlst restoration. More
recently she found it fostering the military
conspiracy against the civil supremacy. Other
grievances have accumulated, until now France
resolves to end what has long seemed an an
achronism by abolishing political relations with
Rome end leaving the Church dependent en
tirely upon moral and spiritual Influence.
This, as we have said, causes no cataclysm. No
allied nations rise to vindicate the challenged
authority of Rome. The people that was, and
perhaps still is, the most Catholic in Europe
expresses no dissent and offers no revolt against
the meditated action of its chosen rulers The
thing is proposed, and bids fair to be effected,
without a shock or even a serious jar to the
internal constitution or to the external rela
tionships of France. What It will mean to the
Church of Rome is n subject for speculation,
and for time to tell. There will be loss of reve
nue If the state subvention is abolished. There
may be loss of political prestige, and of some
political power. There should be no diminu
tion, but rather an increase, of that moral end
spiritual authority which it is, after all, the
Church's prime function to exert Its dignitaries
often dwell, with Justifiable exultation, upon the
unequalled progress and prosperity which the
Church has made and enjoys in America. in
ricw of that, they should logically not ilepre
cate, but rather welcome, the establishment of
like relationship, or lack of relationship, be
tween church and state in France.
The late Samuel Putnam Avery lived a useful
life, and lie will be widely regretted at once as
a personality and as an influence for good In the
artistic development of the city. Forty years
a^o, when he entered the picture market, the
conditions of aesthetic taste In America were
decidedly mixed. The sentimental or humorous
anecdote, painted by the mediocre artist, was
quite as likely to appeal to the collector as was
any masterpiece of modern art, Mr. Avery was
a man of common sense, and bo did not try to
make things over in a day; besides, he knew,
what we are sometimes disposed to forget, that
oven the painted anecdote can be, on occasion,
a masterpiece. But he had an instinctive feel
ing for what was best in contemporary art: he
realized from the outset the value of the Bar
bizon school, for example, and he was of great
service to i;s in bringing really good pictures
into the country. More than one noted gallery
to New- York owes its excellence to his share In
its creation.
On his visits to Europe in earlier days he
established friendly relations with scores or
artists since become famous. He was among
their first as he was amoag their most discern
ing patrons, and as a result there passed
through bis hands or remained in his possession
some of the rarest and most characteristic pro
ductions of his time. He had a gift for dlscov
c-rlng the unique picture or pi int. the most in
teresting personal souvenir. Rauglng far out-
Ude the boundaries of pictorial art. he rwellefl
the list of his acquisitions with beautiful bind
ings, porcelains and divers objects of artistic
craftsmanship. These treasures ho often lent
for exhibition purposes, and finally, in the lei
sure of his later life, bestowed upon different in
stitutions, ko that while at the time of Ins death
he left his home still full of beautiful things, he
had made in one direction or another a remark
able nuiuber of important gift* His c llectlon
of etchings, including a wonderful array of
Whistlers, wont to enrich the print department
of the New-York Public Library. Again and
again it has furnished forth a notable exhibition
at the Lenox Librarj Building. The Metropoli

and whtefa he faithfully served as a trustee, also
profited by liis generosity.
Cut 11:0 extent to whleb Mr. Avery beneOted
the uiar.y artistic organizations with wMeft he
was faleattfed has already been noted In The
Tribune. What we wish especially to point cut
to-day is the fact that in matters of art he was
as cultivated as he was open handed. He ex

The fettling of Plehre has renewed talk of
political reform in Russia. Even the strangest
champions of Czarlsm seem to be convinced
that some chftr.ee Is desirable, while many con
servative publicists are openly suegpstlng what
they call ft "responsible Ministry" as little less
than necessary. Ta« phrase Las an auspicious
sound, and Intimates such introduction of con
stitutional principles and practice as would
make Russia a comparatively free country.
Yet, to the astonishment of many, the Czar
himself, who Is one of the foremost advocates
and promoters of reform. is reported to rejrnrd
th« proposal with uuh<?£ltat!iig and entire dis
approval. Only to the superficial observer,
however, should that be siirprislns. It does not
Indicate reaction on the Czar's rart. or opposi
lion to reform; but, rather, sound common sense
and amo judicious knowledge of Hussla, her
needs and her capacities than the advocates of
the scheme in question "m to possess.
For what does a "responsible Ministry"
Imply? Obviously, a Parliament, to which the
Ministry will be responsible, as lv Great
Britain and Franco. That may be an admira
ble system. But it Is altogether visionary nr-.l
lin practicable to thlr.k of applying it to Russia.
It is uot ■rely that itussia is not ready for It,
though bhe certainly is not. It is also that the
genius of the Russian people unfits them, or
at least tails to fit them, for parliamentary In
stitutions. We must dismiss the Idea that nil
men are alike In mind and temperament, and
that what Is goo-1 lv civics for one people is
necessarily pood for ali 6thers. It Is not so.
any more than that whale blubber would be a
pood diet In the tropics and frulta and vegeta
bles best in the Arctic zone. It has lons be!
a truism with ethnologists that races differ In
mental constitution ad In the method of oper
ntlnis of the mind. Some have a genius for
one kind of government, and me for another.
Parllameht&rianlsm has been lor centuries
characteristic of the Anslo^ason sad Teutonic
peoples. Afhdhg the i>n!!ns. so called, it has
never yet become fo well dei elope Among
the Slavs the parliamentary faculty se^m3 al
most lacking. Note, for example, the de
plorable mess that has been made of it In
Austria by the Bohemian Slavs. Parlia
mentary poTcrnment there has really been a
bane rather than a blessing, arid most progress
has been made when th« constitution has been
suspended and the government has been con
ducted arbitrarily bj the Crown. Now, the
Bohemians ere much more enlightened, and
are much closer to the Teutonic and Anglo-
Saxon standard of temperament, than are the
Russians, and If they cannot make parlla
mentarianism a succes«. Ktill less would the
Russians be likely to do po.
We must remember that the Russians p. re
not a European race, strictly speaking. Neither
are they purely Asiatic. Perhaps they are best
to be classed as Eurasians. They possess some
European characteristics, and pome that are
as pronouncedly Asiatic as those of the Tibet
ins or the Malays. That is the fact that must
be borne in mind in considering their political
needs. It was clearly realized by Rousseau,
when In his "Social Contract" he criticised
Peter the Great for adopting a wrong course.
"Peter," he Raid, "had the genius of Imitation;
"he had not the true genius which creates all
"from nothing. lie tried at first to make Ger
"mans or English, whan he should harp bpgun
"by making Russians. He prevented his sub
jects from ever becoming what they might
"have been, by persuading them that they
"were what they were not." That was a Just
Judgment, and it holds true. It may be too
much to aay, as Rousseau said, that the mis
take was irretrievable, and fatal, and that now
"the Russians will n<-ver be truly civilized."
But we may say with confidence that their
civilization must bo attained on Russian lines,
nrtd not on British or French or German or
American lin-s. Therefore it gppms commend
able in the Cznr that be declines to adopt
precipitately an alien governmental system. Im
posing it upon Russia as best for her, Just he
cause It has be.-m found best for fiome other
land and for some essentially different people.
Russia for the Russians is as true a principle
as America for Americans; and Russia must
have the civil organization that Is best fitted
to the Russian temperament find to the Rus
sian mlnd-whether tt be the absolutism of the
Czar or a restoration of the quasl-republlcs of

It wu predicted long ago by far seeing rail
road men that in due course of time all the local
transportation lines in greater New-Tork would
be embraced in a working agreement, if not in
a merger, and the outlook at present is tn favor

sort may require years for the completion of the
details, but the drift of the Grinning Teeth of
Things (with apologies to Mr. Kipling) is in
evitably in that direction.

The husband who resists his wife's efforts for
a separation because the lady likes her dog bet

who prefers a dog, and possibly a "yaller" one,
to the lord of her life and partner of her bosom?
Such cases turn up now and then, the husband
in general helping the dog along all he can and
willing to abdicate ir. favor of the animal with
out fuss or litigation.

An extraordinary story of the imposition of one
will upon another was told before the psychologi
cal section of the British Medical Association at
Oxford recently. Dr. Elcridge-Green said that h«
was talking with a patient on the subject of hyp
notism. The patient, a lady of moro than average
force of character, said ehe deflod any man to
send her to sleep and make her do as he wished,
"I told her it was not necessary to send her to
sleep." caid tho doctor, "and added. "You will wake
at 6 o'clock to-morrow morning and will send me a
postcard despite your own wishes to say no.' I
got that postcard. It was somewhat to this effect:
"I have been trying not to write to you, but I did
wake at 5.' "

Charlton And Mr. Annul' both propositions are
now possible. Mr. Barnabeo will do vaudevilla
the earlier part of the season and later head the
rejuvenated Bostonians. once more donning tho
regal robea of the crafty Sheriff of Nottingham.
