VERBAL BOSS BCSTIXO.
Independence is conducive to much talk. Ver
bosity Is the ebullition and outward manifesta
tion of an unrestrained and unrestrainable per
sonality. There is ancient authority for saying
that in an unixissed economy the tongue is the
most unbosoable member. Silence Is a trust tool
and the henchman of political corruption.
Show us a man who keeps his tongue in his
bead and we Khali -Low you one fit for strat
egeiue and hopeful of spoils. Blast follows
counterblast. The echoes have no chance to
die away. Mr. Hearst scarce opes his mouth
when Mr. Jerome indefatigably assails the
fatigued ears. Mr. Jerome's Independence scarce
wells up in him to overflowing before Mr.
Hearst's tongue itches to utter much the same
brave defiance of the powers of political dark
ness. They are in a contest to drown out each
other* utterance. Two mouths with but a eln
gle speech, two tongues that wag as one.
The last interviews of these two boss busters
are a contest in similarity. "I shall now," says
Mr. Hearst, "give you a correct imitation of
Jerome running for office," and he does it. "I
shall bow," retorts Mr. Jerome, "give you a
correct imitation of Hearst running for office."
and the verisimilitude is remarkable. It strikes
Mr. Jerome, whose tun of eloquence is broached
a thought later than Ma rivals, that the editor
has stolen his "political clothes." We have
already expressed tmr opinion of the District
Attorney's priority. Hut if be invented "Inde
pendence," Mr. Hearst patented it, organized it,
syndicated It wat«r«d it, floated it. Mr.
Jerome* originality is in danger of being for
gotten through Mr. Hearst's enterprise. it was
a great discovery, "fadependeoee/' and there is
enough to go around among Jerome, Hearst
Moran and the rest.
Hobbs hints blue, straight he turtle eats;
No!>bs prints blue, darec crowns his cup;
Stokes outdoes Nokss In azure feats,
Both grorge. Who fished the mures up?
The boss busters leave little to he desired.
Mr. Hearst damns Mr. Murphy, and without
faint praise. Of fhe faintuess of the damns
some cynical natures may raise a suspicion.
Twice, however, upon the Lupercol be las
thrust back the proffered crown of Mr. Murphy's
devotion. The boss carries hi« political life in
bis hacGs every time he presses his repulsed and
repulsive support upon the gr«nt Independent.
It la one of the mystery of. the da; ui.y he
-.tersistfi in this suicidal enterprise. A3 we have
said. Mr. Hearst** treatment of Mr. Murphy
leaves little to ;." desired, i«ut ire can't helj>
desiring that little. Why vol. discourage th

autumn It might do some good and would
make mighty diverting : ' campaigning.
Alike in one thing, alike in all. , mutatis
mutandis, Mr. Jerome, too, <lnmnt» Murphy, and
there is a heartfelt sincerity about his ex
pression that leaves no room for <iTiesrl<>nln*.
But then Murphy ta the other fellow's scoun
drel. To treat these two candidates with the
l*>rf«ct equity of a mere spectator of the fray
we must aFlc'tt little nlsr. of the District Attor
ney. Why does lie leave "We Tim" Sunivsui
out of Mi gallery of "quasi-crimlnato"? For
"quast-crimlnals" Mr. Jerome has the keenest
eye. Why does be overlook this one? Mr. Hearst
pillories his persistent and unwelcome friend.
Why does not Mr. Jerome also excoriate the
boss who is reputed to be thrusting In a similar
way his attentions upon the District Attorney?
Perhaps this Is asking too much. Murphy has
always been in the foreground. Sullivan in the
background. Murphy is familiar with flogging.
sophisticated to scourging, hardened to ham
mering. He is inured to the blows that beat
around a throne. He cannot be driven off. but
perhaps Sullivan can. lie might take a public
booting from which the pulchrltudlnous form of
the Bowery chieftain would shrink. If there is
this distinction between the two men Mr. Jerome
is unfortunate In his "unwelcome friends." He
is handicapped by their sensitiveness.
The two independents are of one mind about
the Democratic parry. Mr. Hearst will have
none of it He is going to be the candidate of
the Independence party. Of course, he cannot
prevent that despicable crew at Buffalo from
indorsing him if they are as Insistent as Mr.
Murphy Is In their love for him. As for Mr.
Jerome, he would not stoop to pick the Dem
ocratic nomination out of a gutter. Not he!
But, of course, if they Insist, like the unfortu
nate Mr. Sullivan ! Then. too. Mr. Jerome
is something of a casuist. The noble end of ele
vating St. Hieronymus to the Governorship
justifies the unworthy Buffalo means. Both
candidates are running for nomination on their
contempt for the Democracy. By objurgations
that "shameful" party will recognize its mas
ter's voice. Why shouldn't they contemn it?
Both have strength of their own. Mr. Hearst
has his own private party, the Independence
party. Mr. Jerome — Jerome!
MR. BRYAN'S HOMBCOMWQ.
As a good American, with an American sense
of humor, and a veteran politician, with some
experience in ascensions and declensions, Mr.
Bryan will naturally be Inclined to put a philo
sophic valuation on what might be called the
red fire phase of tbe jubilation in honor of his
homecoming. He is too old an actor to be
Imposed on by the stage pageantry of politics.
He has had crowns handed to him before— and
also lemons. He has sat on the front seat of
the band wagon and heard the tumult and
shouting of the captains struggling to clamber
up over the sides and tbe tailboard. He has
also seen these same captains clambering down
to take passage with a bandmaster blowing
other tunes and headed In another direction.
He will not be swept off bis balance, then, as
he finds himself bailed on his return as the
greatest, wisest and most travelled of Demo
crats, the heir of Jefferson and Jackson and
the sole possible unifier and savior of the his
toric party which they founded and vitalized.
He will not be overcome when he learns that
lined up on the wharf to greet him are fifty
seven representatives of the fifty-seven former
varieties of Democrats waiting to tell him that
they have reverted and are now, one and all,
Bryan Democrats. He will be jtoucbed. per
haps, but hardly unnerved, by tbe news that
Henry Wattereon, Tom Taggart, Roger Sulli
van, the seven little Mayors from Nebraska
and a band of other patriots collected from
every Democratic centre in the country save
Princeton, N. J.. have come to town to sig
nalize bis return to duty and opportunity and
to offer him on bis own terms tbe receivership
of the Democratic party.
So fickle and variable Is popularity, and so
soon to tbe past forgot. As he floats about on
the Hllnl. screened from intrusion and await
ing the psychological moment for tbe latest
crown-banding ceremony. Mr. Bryan will prob
ably recall with interest tie incidents of bis re
turn two years ago. That wan a return from
Russia— a return from Moscow, indeed. Spring
was here, but there was a frost in the air, and
no chartered private yacht bung about Quar
antine waiting to receive the sea word trav
eller. No fifty-seven Democratic brotherhoods
were on hand to swear allegiance, and Madi
son Square Garden .was not warmed and lighted
to receive the hosts gathered to bear the Ne
braska statesman's homecoming message. As
we recollect It, Mr. Bryan rented a ball of mod
erate size and issued invitations for a lecture
at bis own cost, and not a little indignation was
expressed by tbe very Democrats now falling
over themseives to catch bis earliest utterance
that lif should have hed the hardihood to ex
press here uninvited some candid views on the
meaning and probable consequences of Judge
I Parker's Presidential canvass.
But a prophet once unbonored may get some
i honor on the second trial. It is only justice to
Mr. Bryan to say that he now holds the tame
views and delivers the same message, as in
1904. He has not wavered nor stultified him
self. The change is in bis audience, not in
I him. and tbe Democrats vow banging so greed
ily on bis words are most of them thus doing
poetical penance for a disloyalty which paid no
dividends and which they, therefore, sincerely
regret. Tiie Tribune has bud no illusions about
j Mr. Bryan, and never sympathised with the
' misvaluation of bis character and abilities which
led to the Parker fiasco of I»>4. He is a polit
ical leader of marked capacity aud unusual
courage, and in bis own party has now virtually
eliminated all rivals. He will probably be an
important factor in public affairs for many
years, and bis influeneo. we believe, will be n
I helpful one in discouraging machine corruption
aud lifting politics to a cleaner and more sat
isfactory level. His homecoming and his ele
vation unopposed to tbe Democratic leadership
are, therefore, occurrences of national interest.
As a Republican newspaper, we. too. can cord
ially welcome Mr. Bryun home, though we may
be as much disposed as lie is to take a little
philosophically some of the exhibitions of new
born solicitude and enthusiasm evoked by bis
return.
RUSSIAN POLICIES.
No wiser word has been spoken In Russia for
a long time than that of the "Novoe Vremya"
in counselling the government bow to avert the
worst kind of civil war. by which, we assume,
It means the civil war of the Red Revolution
ists, waged with pistol, knife and bomb, and
of Moujik mobs with axe and torch. It advises
no iron hand repression, or, at any rate, not that
alone and as a finality. To Its enlightened
mind, in the historic phrase of Bright, "force
is no remedy." But what is needed is that the
Cabinet which rules Russia In the interval be
tween two Doumas. shall at the earliest possi
ble moment frame and proclaim a constitu
tion which shall realize the aspirations of the
sane Liberals. That done, the provocation to
revolution would be removed, and repression of
the Reds would become the mere upholding of
law and the. maintenance of ordered liberty,
while until It is done repression will be inter
preted by many as the upholding of despotism.
The exceptionally privileged and authoritative
standing of the "Novot> Vremya" suggests that
this utterance may have more significance than
appears on the surface. Certainly the adoption
of such a policy would be balled with profound
satisfaction by th<» friends m Russia every*
\vl)erfe,
At the same lime the Reactionaries, who call
themselrsj Monarchists and impudently post as

the only simon-pure friends . nrid supporters of
the ; throne, though in fact they have done
more to undermine and weaken it than all other
fore:'* in Russia together, have put forward
their malevolent advice. They want the Czar
to apply remorseless repression, Ito outlaw nil
the .lews and to exclude the "intellectuals"—
to wit. educated Russians— from participation
in politics. II" lie will do that, they say, they
will themselves take part In the next Douma
elections-elections entirely dominated by them
selves—while if he will not do so. the intima
tion is that they will hold aloof from the whole.
Douma business and devote their energies to
organizing more pogroms after the fashion of
Klshineff and Blalystok, for the robbing, out
raging and murdering of Jews. Wo cannot
suppose the Czar will listen long to such coun
sel, though It Is offered by some of his own
household.
As for Mr. Stolypln, the sorely stricken Prime
Minister, lie .bos. another policy,, of his own.
He has been foregathering with various rep
resentative Jews, and assuring them of his deep
and benevolent Interest in their race, of his
disapproval of the pogroms which some of his
own subordinates organized, and of his sin
cere desire to see the Jews as well treated as
any one else. But for the present, he says, It
Is quite impossible to grant them equal rights,
and he can only offer them a hope that the
new Douma may do something for them, and
that some time, in the dim future, they may get
equal rights with Tartars and Kalmucks, pro
vided they implicitly trust him. bear their bur
dens with patience, submit to odious discrimi
nations without protest and scrupulously re
frain from violence of any bind, oven, it may
be assumed, from striking a blow to protect
their goods from theft, their wives and daugh
ters from outrage and their own lives from
the hands of assassins. Sufferance," said Shy
lock, "is the badge of all our tribe." But we
must doubt whether the patience of Russian
Jews will prove sufficient for the awaiting of
Mr. Stolypin's millennium.
Among these and other varying counsels and
possible and impossible policies the supreme
need Is that of a man, a strong man, who can
choose wisely and maintain with steadfastness
his choice. Vacillation and uncertainty have
been the curse of Russia. The "Novoe Vremya"
prescribes a policy of humanity, justice and
wisdom, and also, we must believe, of impreg
nable strength. But who is there to adopt It
and to enforce it? The Czar himself Is doubtless
sufficiently benevolent to do so, but something
more than mere benevolence Is needed, and that
additional quality, a combination of Initiative,
resolution and persistence, with the command
ing leadership which compels the following of
other minds and the confidence of all, is some
thing of which he has not yet demonstrated his
possession.
OBBAWATTOMIE BROWS.
It is fitting that the fiftieth anniversary of the
battle of Ossawattomie should be commem
orated as it is this week. There may be, and
there perhaps will always be, differences of
opinion concerning that conflict and its purport
in American history. Some historians affect to
regard it as a negligible incident while others
insist that it was to the Civil War what Great
Meadows was to tbe French and Indian War,
and what Lexington and Concord were to the
Revolution. The truth probably lies, as usual,
between the two extremes, but ite exact place
is not of paramount importance for the present
purpose. There can be no question of the por
tentous dimensions of that incident as it loomed
fifty years ago upon the horizon of national
vision both North and South. Abolitionist and
slave driver alike regarded it as nothing less
than epoch making. An occurrence which caused
so tremendous a sensation then deserves to be
remembered now.
Moreover, Ossawattomle made John Brown a
figure of national Interest. Concerning him. too,
there has been, is and doubtless ever will be
much difference of opinion. We doubt, indeed,
if there is a figure in all American history of
which more strikingly opposing views are taken.
To some be was a vulgar cutthroat; to others
he was a chivalric hero. Some denounced him
us a demon ; some would almost have canonized
him as a saint. By some he was regarded as
an irresponsible madman; by others as a wise
and farseeing statesman. We need not under
take the impossible task of giving final Judg
ment between such controversialists. The fact
is that in 1 WK> and for years thereafter the name
of "Old Brown, Ossawattomie Brown." was
unsurpassed as a name to conjure with, whether
for love and enthusiasm or for fear and hatred,
throughout tbe American continent. A man
whose name was tbe burden of the war song
of a nation is not a mere lay figure in history.
This celebration, then, is worthily couceived
and should not be without some practical profit.
Tbe issues of Brown's day are assumed to be
gone forever. Doubtless they chiefly are, and
we may hope their sectional passions are en
tirely gone beyond recall. But there are those
who see In every denial of the right of freedom
of labor, under whatever compulsion, and In
every discrimination between men on purely
racial grounds, whether in New England or in
South Carolina, an indication of need that John
Brown's soul shall mill be "marching on." Nor
is it void of value to us that. Just as tbe name
of Lee can be inscribed in tbe Hall of Fame
with national approval, so the nnme and deeds
of Ossawattomie Brown — whom I^ee guarded to
the scaffold — can be « i oiunieruorated without any
of tbe passions of the past, and that he can be
regarded, whatever his intrinsic merits, as an
historic figure, who played his part in the pro
logue of our nation's greatest tragedy with a
grim earnestness amply befitting the scene, and
who in the end lent a new dignity to death by
bis own unsurpassed tenderness nnd fortitude in
its presence.
WKLLMAX AND PEARY.
No one will question Mr. Wellman's wisdom
In postponing until next year further attempt*
to reach the Pole, Both the success of bis ex
pedition and the lives of the five men compos-
Ing his party are dependent on the efficiency of
the means of transportation on which be ex
pects to rely when be leaves Spitzbergen for
the North. If he is not now thoroughly satis
fled with the condition and conduct of the ma
chinery of his airship, he does well to wait until
it can be reconstructed. It Is to be hoped that
before he comes south for the winter be will
make tests enough to reveal any defects which
may exist, in addition to those which he has
already discovered. He ought to make the most
of the opportunity afforded him in the next few
months to guard against failure from purely
mechanical causes.
The interruption of the Arctic campaign which
contemplated an advance from Spitzbergen nat
urally stimulates cariosity concerning the fate
of the one in which Grant Land was to be util
ized as a bast. Since Peary arrived in the vi
cinity of Etan a year ago nothing has been
heard from him. It is not yet known In how
high a latitude he was able to secure winter
quarters for his ship. The world Is equally
Ignorant about the work which be planned to do
early in the following spring. Even had he met
with the largest success and had undertaken to
come home this year he could not well be heard
from before the early part of September. II*»
would be icebound near or above Cape Sablne
until about tbe first of August. If. on the other
band, the results thus far attained have not
been all that could bo wished, he could cominu
nlcate with bis friends only very tardily. Let
ters sent down by Esquimau carriers to Capo
York in Greenland, to be picked up by Amer-
Mm or Scottish whaler*, could hardly reach
any regular postofflee before autumn. Never
theless, the time is apparently close at band
when definite tidings will be received from him.
Until tb*»y do arrive it will be Judicious to cher
ish only moderntp expectations in re*>ml to this
jear'p achievements. Penry himself, it , will bo
remembered; us«ml the most' cautious lan(Oiagp
In ppenking of the future, and lie took with him
food enough to last two or three years.
■ A ■"particularly ' IntPWtinir situation would
nrise next yenr if Peary, ns well .is Wcllman,
Rhoul.l have found It necessary to defer for a
time his fliifil effort. In at least one respect
Peary would have the advantage over his rival.
Inasmuch as the pack ice is firmer in February
and March thin, three or four months later. it
can be traversed with greater -''•'> be fore the
vernal equinox than after it. If Peary should
reach the Pole, therefore, he would probably do
so early in the year. Spitzbergen, Wellman's
base. Is not- accessible before Juno, or, at least,
was not this year. Little preparation would
be required when he once arrived there, but it
does not seem possible that he could begin his
aeronautic voyage until after the success of
Peary's attempt had boon determined one way
or the other. Were both men to realize their
ambition, then, Peary might be the first to do so.
There Is, of course, another factor which may
operate inriuentlally In this competition. Until
they reach a point nearly five hundred miles
from the Pole, both men rely on identical means
of conveyance. Beyond that limit there Is a
conspicuous difference. Owing to the irregular
ities in the surface of the Ice and the opening
of impassable crevices between the floes, Peary
would. In all likelihood, bo compelled to make
many vexatious detours and traverse five times
the distance which lies between Grant Land and
the Pole. Wellman would probably be able to
follow a nearly straight course and to travel at
a much higher rate of speed. With equal skill
and experience behind the two systems of trans
portation, the chances of success would appar
ently be In Wellman's favor. Peary, however,
has unquestionably given more study to the
methods which he will employ than Wellman
has to his. Superiority of one kind may yet
offset superiority of another. Some time or other
the airship will prove better than sledges and
dogs. Whether It will in 1907 is another ques
tion. i*V&«j

THE TALK OF THE DAY.

A strange kite has been devised by a Swedish
engineer. It Is made to fly under water. It is
made of light canvas adjusted to a light but strong
metal frame, and In shape is not dissimilar to the
aerial kite except that it la made in two sections,
the lower and smaller one depending from the
upper, with which It la connected by a sort of
coupling. The object sought !>v the engineer is
to provide ships with an ever ready automatic
guard or watch that will give instant alarm if the
vevsel enters shoal waters and Is approaching a
spot where the depth is not sufficient for safety.
The under water kite ia fastened to a thin wire
cable attached to a winch on deck. The purpose of

So Pa can make those bright replies
With real sarcastic flings.

I've rot to ask of polities
80 Pa can loose his tongue.
They ain't the things I care about.
I've got a thankless part.
To wade my time on silly stuff
Bo Pa can pose as smart.
Now this Is what I often think
And : -lakes me wonder so.

That Pa don't even know?
