No One Can Forecast the Policy He Would
Pursue if Elected.
: To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I read your paper with the greatest ap
i preclatlon. From It I i earn that the Democratlo
candidate will go down In history as "Doubtful
What policy would he pursue toward the Philip
: pines? Doubtful.
What policy would he pursue toward the trusts
If hi! opinion as to the efficiency of the common
law to control them should prove incorrect? Doubt
Would he. on the ground of "regularity," sign a
, free stiver law tf the Democratic party, by some
hook or crook, got it passed by Congress? Doubt
Would be enforce the law against capital only, or
asamst union labor only, or both? DoubtfuL
Would he appoint negroes to office and uphold
the mixed schools of New- York, as Mr. Watson
, has well Rsked? Doubtful.
Would he sign an Income tax law? Doubtful.
Would he continue the building of the Panama
; Canal, or abandon it on the grounds that our rights
were oiit ;l ined unconstitutionally? Doubtful.
Would he find his Cabinet and advisers in Hill or
Tammany, or in men of the Cleveland stripe or In
that of Bryan? Doubtful.
Can the men who mistakenly represented him at
• the convention correctly forecast his future con
. duct on any important measure? Doubtful.
To those who would like to experiment with the
, welfare of the country "Doubtful Parker" is an
Meal candidate, but a vast majority of our citi
zen? believe. with Captain Sigshpe. that. "It Is bet

ALL HOPES OF PARKER GONE.
To the Editor of Th<> Tribune.
S'.r: I read Th« Dalhr Tribune with « irrent deal
of plcnßure. I ;im a born Democrat, but voted for
licKfntey, and i believe I would vote for Roosevelt
except for Mr. "NM^Kor." Anyway, I want you to
tell me what's the matter with Democracy. I
hove acver known rook fripMtty In « political cam
pn'Kn. Down here ln good old Pemorratlr- OeorKia
and Alabama you put a man asleep If you talk to
him about the Presidential campaign.
The eaalrsaaa of the Floyd County (Ga.) Demo
cratic Kxerutlve Committee wrote to the State
chairman asking if lie would furnish tickets for
the cam-mrs October Rate election. The chairman
of the Mate Democratic Executive Committee re
plied: "I bfg to Inform you that the State Execu
tive Cosßßstttee Is entirely without fumls to «w»nd
out tickets of any kind, and this 1 r<>Kr»t very
much." Wonder If the national chairman wouldn't
h*~ip Im'tc a little?
If Jixlicf Parker or pome other large Democratic
light doesn't stir up a little more life in this cam
paign .rile will have to bo hauled to the polls ln
rarriaß''? ln order to get them to vote. You will
be surprised when I state that there are many
fairly well informed voters down here who have to
think twW before they can tell you th«» names of
the Democratic candidates for President and Vice-
Prcsldent. They are not thinking or oaring any
thing about the election.
IV! lie I am for Judge Pnrker. ! really think it
would be a good Idea for him to withdraw, and l<-t
us make It unanimous for Mr. Roosevelt and be
done with it. For a while after J'.i'lgn Parker's
nomination l firmly believed h<» would be. elected,
but my hopes have fled, and now I don't care much
about it one way or the other. C. B. G.

THE DEBILITANT DEMOCRACY.
T» the Kdi'or nf The Tribune.
Sir: Heretofore I have thought that nothing
could be except what embodied a meaning. Were
the late William C Whitney alive, he would under
stand and appreciate why I have recently begun
to think that I may have been In error. In Febru
ary. UN, handing Mr. Whitney, at his then resi
dence, a newspaper clipping. I asked him. "Is the
"Whatever that Is. I should think It must be, If
It, or any part of it. imagines that free coinage
has my approval or concurrence.," was his answer.
Immediately following this answer he wrote and
signed a letter, extracts from which are
I learn that SOSM persons have believed me a sup
porter of the view that the T'nlted States «houl<l
open its mints to the free colr.a** of silver at 1«
to 1 Independent of the co-operation and action of
other nations. ai:d in that belief have been led Into
a false position as regards their own principles.
Vnd«r these circumstances I ought to nay that I do
not believe In that theory of finance, but consider it
unsound, and. if adopted, likely to lead in mort
evil consequences to our people and their !nduK.rle«
and prosperity It Is, in my opinion, fundamentally
wrong and vicious. , , m .w~
I'ntil the ratio of value of the metals is fixed by
a concurrence of the nations, and the. stab!. lty or
ouch value maintained by International agreement.
I believe any action by the United States alone
would be disastrous to us. would bring 5" n ", r vl "'"
to our present prosperity and would hinder the true
aid final solution of the problem.
Thir*e opinions I do not entertain or express as a
candidate for the PreMden. y. but In order that the
people who have views differing from these may
not be deceived as to mine.
That was William <". Whitney: and it is not
strange that a man possessed of such convictions,
and with courage to openly express them, "houltl
have voted for lacKlnTey; nor Is It strange that
the undersigned is not th* only one who feels a
sured that, if Mr. Whitney were now In the flesh he
would be affirmatively against the .lection of an)
ticket the success of which meant disaster '•■> tne

REPRESENTATION IN THE SOUTH.
To the. Editor of the Tribune.
Blr- That fact of the Republican platform de
manding reduction of representation In Congress
and the electoral college in proportion as the
suffrage has been limited Is the subject of
vituperative abuse by every Democratic newspaper
and orator in tn* South. No argument Is made or
' off.red against its legality, fend that the Constitu
tion requires It none dare deny, for It is plain; but
they claim that It is an att-ropt to oppress the
South. In looking over to-day volume I of "South
am Historical Papers" I found an address de
livered by that world-famed orator. Senator John
T. (Nicaragua) Morgan, of Alabama, la the year
1877. Now, Senator Morgan has been regarded in
the South' for a generation as Its greatest Consti
tutional lawyer. paten to what he. says on pages
' 26 and 26 of said address: "The enfranchisement of
the negro added so materially to the political power
of the South . . . It is to our interest and In full
. accord with our duties that they should enjoy the
Mewing* of the Republic. They ran participate
with safety in the electoral franchise, and when
: left to the guidance of their own free wills they
will do themselves and the country Justice. At all
events we cannot afford to surrender the political
..r.wer 'that depends on their right of suffrage."

Poughkeepsie. N. V., Sept 24.— Two high

noon while strolling through Colonel Astor*s

The girls in the course of their wanderings had
occasion to cross a high trestle of the Central

part of the property, and had reached the centre
of the structure, when a train came along run
ning at ah gh rate of speed. The train was two
hours late and was not expected by the young
The engineer put on the air brakes, bat was
unable to cheek the speed of the train, and the

M'ADOO TUTORS A POLICEMAN.
Tells Him to Clear Away Crowd that Bars
Air from Injured Han.
I? the Police Commissioner could personally
look after the men who shirk duty on post. It Is
more than probable that there would be an un
usual display of activity among the policemen.
Going tip Broadway last night the Commis
sioner noticed a crowd at Thlrty-thlrd-st., and,
elbowing his way through, saw an aged man
lying on the sidewalk. He was Henry Car
penter, seventy-nine years old, of No. 79 Broad
way, Flushing. He had been struck by a Broad
way car, George O'Brien motorman.
While the old man was not seriously Injured,
he had sustained severe contusions, and was suf
fering considerably. The Commissioner took
charge of the case and made himself known to
Patrolman John White, of the West Thirtieth-st.
station, who was watting for the ambulance.
"Officer, drive this crowd back." said the Com
missioner, "go that he can grt air to breathe.
This dense Crowd will suffocate him." Single
handed Wkttfl was unequal to the task. He
rapped for assistance, and. with the aid of
Patmlman Di- hi. of the Broadway Squad, who
answered, cleared a largo circle about the
wounded man. Carpenter was removed to
New-York Hospital in an ambulance. Commis
sioner McAdoo remained until hts removal.

PABKUVRST RETURNS ILL
He Returns from Europe Entirely
Dr. Charles H. Parkhnrst returned from Eu
rope yesterday, with his wife, on the Celtic,
with bis health entirely broken down. He was
so 111 that he could not speak more than a few
whispered words to those that met him at the
pier. Last Sunday Dr. Parkhurst became fever
ish. His condition became worse, numerous
chills following his periods of fever. On the
voyage iie was attended by the ship's surgeon.
When the Celtic was docked Dr. Parkhurst
saw a few friends In his stateroom for a few
minutes. He refused to discuss local affairs, as
any extended conversation would bring on
severe fits of coughing. Before being moved to
Ms home in a carriage he asked about the re
cent developments in the Far East
With the exception of a brief stay In Great
Britain Dr. and Mrs. Parkhurst spent most of
their time on the Continent.
