. ".Something dropped" on Tuesday up
the state as well as in the city. The
Republican leaders of the "Old Guard"
stripe who have been trying 'to block
<;overnor Bughesfts plans for giving me
voters a larger share of power i.i party
management have been almost .-!< sis-
I'iticantly rebuked as have our discred
ited Tammany autocrats. It is impos
sible to interpret the defeat of several
Republican Assemblymen conspicuous
in opposing direct nominations legisla
tion and the dwindling away of the
pluralities given to other anti-Hughes
candidates except as a notice that the
public is intensely interest" d iii the
Hughes programme of popular sov
ereignty in parties and intends to see
that ,he Governor's reforms hare a fair
cZnnve. Senator Uaines and Speaker
'Wads worth have been especially out
spoken in their opposition to the popu
larization of party methods. The .Sena
tor's Assemblyman lias been defeated in
Hits Strong Hei-tiblican county of Onta
rio. Speaker WadswortU had a narrow
escape from defeat, and in Orleans.
Niagara. Onondaga and Warren counties
candidates hostile to direct nominations
Lave been left at home.
There is nothing clearer from the re
sults <.; Tuesday's voting In" this city
::md ■aie than that the public is dissatis
fied with the existing narrow methods of
parly organization and management.
Here the voters struck everywhere at
the authority of managers who were try
,ing to interpret their wishes without suf
ficient, information, and, therefore, with
only partial success. The Tammany or
ganization B| crushed, polling one of
the smallest votes polled by it in 'many

parties still further by widening the gap
between the leaders and the voters. No

poses unless it strives to represent the
ideas and wishes of its members and
succeeds in a fair measure in represent

needed to attain that object is a wider
distribution of political power.

Justice Gajuor iaagbs only once,
biughs last :ui<l laughs best, if the acrid
smile with which he views the discom
fiture he has brought upon the myrmi
dons of predatory journalism may In
deed be called s laugh. But h» should
Ik* temperate in his triumph, for in this
unequal contest just dosed he has been
handicapped by no sense of. humor, and
that fortunate circumstance has created
an IrrefragiMe bond of sympathy be
tween himself and bis public.
It is a familiar observation that the
man who laughs much and easily is
doomed to the lower rungs on the lad
der of public life, but it has remained
for the Christian jurist to prove that the
corollary of this proposition is true to
its logical extreme, that solemn linea
ments are an adequate support for sol
emn pretensions, that unwinking self
assertion tiuds unhesitating acceptance,
and that the man who laughs not at all
holds ihe public faith in fee simple. Tho
guile, cynicism and sophistication of the
metropolitan multitude are less than
skin deep. A man with Ingrowing re
ligiosity who can solemnly worship him
self as a fetich can Ret that fetich a< -
cepted by the subliminal chiidlikeness of
the masses.
Our compliments to the Christian ju
rist. We wish to record our profound
conviction that if Ih> had chosen to stand
iii Madison Square Garden, not <m his
metaphorical but on his physical head,
maintaining the while his prophetic
gravity, the people would still have
voted for him with unabated unction.
Through Mr. Barnard's campaign the
people of New 'fork are richer in the
knowledge of one more "best citizen."
HiR modesty, his unselfish willingness
to serve the public, his unfailing cour
tesy, his pre-eminent prood sense have
been impressed upon the public in .1
campaign in Which his candidacy af
forded a refreshing contrast, nnd lp
takes with him a degree of popular
esteem that has seldom been the lot
of s badly defeated nominee.
Mr. Bannard is an ornament to busi
ness life, but the majority seem to feel
that political !ife when unadorned 18
adorned the most. ,He talked shop on
the stump aud tried to impress the
electorate with the relevancy of Intelli
gence and enlightened self-interest >«>
the problems of civic life. He goes
back into private life a man whom
every one would be eager to have at
the bead of an enterprise in which he
bad invested bis money, and whom less
than one-third <>f the people desired to
have at the head of the civic enterprise
in which are Involved their nearest pub
lic interests. The voters 'am evidently
determined not to mix business with
pleasure, and self-government remains
bti unadulterated joy.
Maryland is to be congratulated on
the rejection of the proposed, dis
franehjseinenf amendment to its consti
tution. For the second time the peoplo
of that state have repudiated a dishonest
scheme to limit the franchise, not by
imposing tests intended to bear on the
ignorant and the undesirable as such, but
by creating artificial and unjust distinc
tions and establishing a fantastic claim
of eligibility based on ''descent." The
original roc-Gorman amendment, sub
;i.ined four years ago, was rejected by
a majority of 34.039. It was so glar
ingly Illogical that Senator Rayner and
Governor Wsrfleld both opposed it and
helped to defeat it. The revised amend
ment of 1«mk» was more plausibly drawn
and Senator Kayner consented to support
it. although in order to do so be had to
applaud an application of the principles
oi hlnow-Xothingism which lie had for
merly denounced as abhorrent and de.
prayed. In spite of his recantation, th"
new "ancestor" scheme has been de
feated by a majority of til teen thousand
or more.
This pernicious agitation in Maryland
should now end. it has been insincere
ami narrowly partisan in motive from
the start. There is no excuse for a
"grandfather clause" in a state like
Maryland, when- the race issue is not
acute. The Democratic leaders who
have favored restricting the suffrage
have never had any intention of sup
porting a bona Me restriction scheme.
They are not trying to penalize defects
which should disqualify an elector with
out regard to rare, nativity or ancestry
but only to play on racial and nnti-\
foreign prejudices for partisan advan
tage. Their hypocrisy has been twice re
buked. They ought to realize now that
they cannot intimidate or humbug the
The Alsop claim, of which after many
years there is now a prospect of settle
ment, may be described as a by-product
of Chili's war with Bolivia and Peru
and of her conquest and annexation at
the rich sea coast provinces of Cobija
and Atacainn, belonging to the former,
: , and Hoquegua, belonging to the bitter.
[ It also affords an Illustration of chili's
practice of procrastination, which has
been the cause of much complaint by
I'eru in connection with the settlement
of the Issues of the same war.
The claim in question, of the validity
of which there appears to be no dispute,
was originally against Bolivia and took
the form Of a lien upon the guano and
nitrate deposits of her coast provinces
[lad it remained in that status it would
doubtless long ago have been satisfied
from the proceeds of the guano and Mi
trate works. But Chill waged war
against Bolivia and rent, and seized the
whole vast region which now forms
her four provinces of Taens (I nil tiding
Aries), Tarapaca, Antofagasta and Ata
c.nia. Bolivia, thus deprived of the
property '" : '''" development of which
ii.c claim upon her had been incurred,
and also of the means of paying -'. ih
claim,. protested that >.he should be re
leased and that tho dalm should he an
(ucambrauce npon the property which
chili had seised.
This contentfbn of Bolivia's was well
founded. The American principle In
such cases was laid down by John
Quincy Adams In 1818, to the effect
that "the conqueror who redsjees s na
"tion to his subjection receives it sub^
••jei't to all its engagements and duties
"toward others, tho fulfilment of which
"then becomes his own duty." Mr. Fre-
Ungfauysen also, in 188&, referring to
cases identical with and closely con«
nocted with this very claim, declared
ll'at "the foreign, obligations of ivru,
"incurred in good f.-iiih before the war,
"rested upon and were secured by the
"products of her guano deposits. Chill
"whs under n mural obligation not to
"appropriate that security without recog
"niziiiK the lien existing thereon." For
"Peru" road "Bolivia." and Mr. l're
linghuysen's words exactly apply to the
case now in hand.
This view was Indeed regarded si rea
sonable and oquitablo by Chill liorsoU'.
Hut then began those processes of pro
crastination and delay which Chili has
practised not only ia ibis matter, but
also in avoiding futilmont of tho Angon
treaty with Peru. At fir^t it was do
dared that the claim could not be paW
until Chilian tinnneo-: had boon read
justed after the war. When that plea
was no longer available others were
found, and, jis a result, now. after twen
ty-four years, the claim is still unset
tled. It is gratifying to have a good
prospect that the delayed settlement will
soon be effected, and that in the way
in which each matters should always
bo settled — by direct diplomatic dealings
between tho two nations, it is also grat
ifying to know that the alternative, in
case sucii dealings should not prove
effective, is an appeal to the tribunal ay
The Hague. But we have no idea that
the latter course will be necessary. Chili
is notably prosperous and well able to
pay all legitimate claims against her.
Mr. Bannard, with characteristic mag
nanimity, ignores his own misfortune
fit the polls to acknowledge the indebt
edness of the fusion movement to Mr.
I-lFarst for the support of the fusion
ticket except himself. No doubt Mr.
Hearst, did in a sense cause, or at least
permit, the election of the anti-Tamm
any candidates who were elected •
that is to say, if he had chosen to sup
port Gaynor's associates or had put up
nominees of his own the fusion candi
dates would have been defeated. The
Hearst newspapers are prompt in claim
ing the credit of the victory and In
representing the editor as running dis
interestedly and against his Inclinations
for Mayor in order to accomplish the
very purposes and only the purposes
which were accomplished.
Perhaps the Hearst newspapers are
only doing their editor justice, or even
scant justice, in praising his disinter
estedness. Hut the question arises,
when the 7CMXK) pluralities received by
Mr. Mitchel and Mr. Prendergast are
taken into consideration, whet had
Mr. Hearst boon loss self-sacrificing, de
clined to run himself and given hearty
support to the fusion candidate for
Mayor, that fusion candidate could not
also have been elected just as Mr. Mitehel
and Mr. Prendergasi wore elected.
We admit this question is impossible to
answer definitely. Hut the majorities
of Messrs. Mitchel and Prendergast are
large, and they suggest that Mr. Hearst,
in keeping himself before the voters,
may not. have done the utmost possible
to give this city better government.
We have do desire to do anything
but justice to Mr. Hearst. But perhaps
we can hotter judge his disinterested
ness and his earnestness in the cause of
good government by watching what ho
does with the personal strength which
this election proves to be his. If he
uses it to serve his ambitions, making
alliance.-; hither and yon according to
his opportunities and without regard to
consistency -in short, it* he behaves
again as lie did after he learned four
years ago that he had a great following
— the public will lie able to make up Its
mind about his disinterestedness and
sincerity. if. on the other hand, be
plays a part perfectly consistent with
the part his newspapers say he played
in his campaign and remains an oar
nest opponent of Tammany Hall, thorp
will be a disposition to revise the ver
dict, and Mr. Hearst may become an
important factor for bettor government
in Now York.
Comment, not favorable to ihis coun
try, was recently made upon the vastly
greater number of casualties through
railroad accidents in the United states
i ban in Great Britain, despite the much
greater number of passengers carried in
the latter country. A similar contrast.
greatly to our discredit, is presented in
the statistics of persons killed or in
jured on railroads not through accidents
to Mains, but while they were trespass
ing on the rails.
in Great Britain, as is well known,
railroads are generally fenced in so as
to make trespassing lew easy. Never
theless many persons do gft upon tho
lines, and in the year lt><»7 no fewer
than 278 were killed and 113 injured
from that cause, or more than twice as
many killed as the number of passen
gers killed from all other causes. Thai
was a heavy roll. Hut it was Insignifi
cant when contrasted with the corre
sponding roll in the United States. For
here in that same year no fewer thai;
.*;,i;r_' persons were killed while thustrei
passing, or more than fifteen a <l-iv. '■>
ten years the number thus killed was
47.4 Ki. while a still larger number were
more or less seriously Injured. The vic
tims are not only tramps, who notorious
ly trespass on railroads, hut also w,, r k-
Ingmen and thoir wives and children aud
all sorts of people, who often consider a
railroad a convenient "short cut" to
their destinations.
Generally those deaths are charged
against the railroads, as though they
were to be blamed for them, when in
fact the companies not only are not at
fault, but actually have striven hard to
prevent trespassing and to protect tres
passers from their folly. Tims the Penn
sylvania Bailroad reports that In spite
Of Its fences and warning signs in I<VJ7

killed nn its various linos. In au heroic
effort to suppress the evil it caused last

MMM places there actually seems to be

is little better than inhuman. There

The value of the verdict rendered by
the National Geoajmajhic Society in
favor of Commander Peary is derived
from the experience and standing of the
men on whose advice that body has
acted. These men are not only mem
bers of the society, but also public ser
vants, whoso duties peculiarly tit them
to pass judgment on the trustworthi
ness of observations to determine lati
tude. Professor Gannett, long the geog
rapher of. the. Geological Survey, and
Mr. Tlttman. at the head of the Coast
and Geodetic Surrey, are experts in
geographical surveying. Admiral Colby
not only has the familiarity which every
naval officer possesses with tho proper
methods of ascertaining a ship's posi
tion at sea. but enjoys the further ad
vantage of having for several years been
in charge of the Naval Observatory, in
Washington, where the chronometer*)
used on war vessels are rated. It is
incredible that these men could bo de
ceived by the evidence submitted to
them or that prejudice could have blind
ed them to any defects in the testimony.
While in our Judgment no reasonable
doubt can hereafter be entertained about
Commander Peary's success, the deci
sion of the National Geographic Society
docs not help the public to determine
whether or not he was the first explorer
to reach the pole. It is unfortunate
that Dr. Cook did not see his way clear
to submitting his case to the same tribu
nal or to some other having an equal
claim to the confidence of Americana.
The prompt settlement of the merits of
his pretensions would have been a re
lief to millions of persons in this coun
try and Europe who seek to be dispas
sionate and are eager only to learn the
truth in this matter. The question hav
ing arisen which Of the two explorers is
entitled to the distinction belonging to
priority of discovery, it was nothing
short of si duty to assist the world to
reach a just conclusion. Whatever ex
cuses Dr. Cook has for his delay, it
puts him at a serious disadvantage.

What Mr. Murphy calls "tho inagnifi
"cent triumph of the Democratic candi
'■<i;iW> for .Mayor" was the triumph of
250,678 Tammany voters over 331,605
anti-Tammany voters, divided between
two candidates. Its demonstration of
the loosening of Tammany's stranelo
hold on tho city is the most "magnifi
cent" thing about it.

"Speaking of thr nerve displayed by
Finail h0y.«.," .said a man who had jiitst re
turned from a trip through the Southwest.
"reminds me of an incident that occurred
a few months ago in the Santa Ana Moun
tains, in Southern California. An eleven
year-old boy, a member of a family mak
ing their way to the Coast, left the camp
e;irly one morning to stalk deer. He found
trackr, and had followed tlum until he was
five or six miles from camp. In rwsrhlus.
up on a rock he disturbed a huge rattle
snake that was sunning himself, and the
snake, without warning, struck, wounding
the boy on the middle lin^T of his right
hand. Knowing that unless prompt action
was taken the wound would prove fatal,
the youth placed the flnKfr over the muzzle
of the gun and pulled the trigßer. Mak
ing a ligature above the wound to stop the
flow of blood, he killed the snake and
walked back to camp, where he fainted.
The finger was Mown off close to his hand,
but he recovered."

There is no limit to the uses of adver
