Irom some p marfcaMe outgivings of the
ihiQ. John Gill, si Maryland Representa
tive, recently reported in "The Baltimore
JSuii." Mr. bill's interview is described
by "The Sun's" Washington ebrrespond
<-jit as ••striliii!?.'* It i*-. indeed, "«trlk
inj;,** :is an exhibition of retarded cere
bration, tbe output Of a statesman wLt<>
must have droppesi off to slumber more
tiah a nionth a?o and who hi still talk- 1
liijjr !ti Ills sleep. Said Hr. GUI:
His fthe President's] udminb-.iraiion is
bat fifteen months old, and yet, begin
7:iu?r as -it did with 'everything la its
favor, it is confronted with a. party In
botfa broaches of Congress hopelessly
<]ivido<3, every policy which the Presi- ',
<j<-iit fatlior*<l twisted, torn unO batter*
into such shape as to be aJmost un
jeoog-nizable to himi, his associates d:s
;rruntJe«J ;<nd disgusted with each oilier
and diserc-diu-d before und despised by j
the country.
It is aluxjsl 1 pity to wake up the
Baltimore bleep talker. Yet bad. be been
i:t bi« iiost Of duty for Jin- last six or
KPven days be would have fouud (be k<-
publtcan party in Congress acting with
complete unanimity ;iu<J almost uii»*x
ainpltd exifedition in patting ,j, ii,,
statute book measures advocated by
Prudent Taft as a redemption of the
pledges of th? last Republics u national
platform. Had he come out of his trance
long enough to read a newspaper on
Tuesday, the date of his interview, be
would have learned that the Republican
majority in the two houses had passed
the Interstate commerce act, the Ari
zona-New Mexico statehood act and the
land withdrawal act, and was on the
point of passing the postal savings bank
act, the reclamation bond Issue act and
•!.• national campaign publicity act. He
would also have discovered that Con
gress had granted the President §250.000
to enable the Tariff Board to ascertain
the difference In cost of production here
and abroad of articles included in the
tariff schedules, thus practically com
pleting the Taft legislative programme
for the present session.
Mr. Gill could sre only rack and ruin
for the President's policies and a Repub
lican majority in Congress "disgruntled
"and disgusted with each other and dis
credited before and despised by the
"country." But even the Washington
correspondent of '-The New York Even
ing Post," whose attitude toward the
administration is always critical, to say
the least, testified yesterday to the thor
oughness with which the united Repub
lican majority in Congress has accom
plished the tasks set it by the President,
speaking for the great bedy of Repub
lican voters. "The Post's" correspondent
said: . .
On practically all administration legis
lation there has been almost a. solid Re
publican vote In both houses of Con
gress. «nd the list of accomplishments
speaks for Itself. . . . Republicans will
have something to boast of on the stamp
and c*n offer some legitimate excuse lor
their re-election, v^,'
Baltimore is less than "forty miles
from Washington. We hope that the
good people of that city will be able to
correct from other sources the informa
tion offered them by their somnambu
listic Representative.
THE MAYOR AND THE POLICE.
Opinions differ as to whether or not
Mayor Gaynor In sending the plain
clotbes men back .to patrol duty has
struck a body blow at "the system." It
is pointed out that the plainclothes men.
although transferred a* a part of the
plan to break up the confidential rela
tions that have existed between them
and the captains and inspectors over
them, have not been transferred far from
their old haunts.- in almost all cases the
men being moved only to a nearby pre
cinct. Thus they remain as patrolmen
under the same Inspector with whom
they served as plainclothes men and
within easy reach of their old captains.
Nor is this all. The authority to detail
men temporarily for plainclotbes duty
is still in the hands of the captains and
inspectors, and before attempting to say
whether the old system is at an end or
not it will be necessary to see how much
this authority Is unod and to what ex
tent the old plainclothes men ordered
back into uniforms continue to be de
tailed for plainclotbes duty.
At any rate a beginning has been
made again, and the Police Department
resumes the attempt that was initiated
by General Greene when he was Police
Commissioner to put an end to a system
which is susceptible of much abuse and
which has been much abused. If the
relations between plainclothes men and
captains and inspectors are not termi
nated by the present action, it will be
possible to send the men just transferred
still further from their old posts of duty,
and it will be possible by the intelligent
exercise of central authority to prevent a
virtual preservation of the old system
under the guise of temporary details to
plaiuciothes duty.
In all the revelations of graft within
the Police Department the plaiDclothes
men have figured. Being without uni
form, they were the natural agents of
dishonest captains and Inspectors in the
collection of tribute from protected vice.
Captains and inpectors were accustomed
to take their favorite plainclothes men
whenever they -were transferred from
precinct to precinct or from district to
district. This obviated the necessity on
the part of the dishonest of letting many
into the secret of graft. A transfer did
not compel the finding and trusting of a
new collector, So notorious did the
plaiuclotbes men become at the time of
the Lexow investigation and so obviously
were they calculated by the nature of
their offices and their relations to supe
riors to become the instrument of graft
that it is a wonder the plainclothes sys
tem was not abandoned long ago. It is
impossible to say how much Mayor
Gaynor has accomplished by this stroke.
but only by attacking the police prob
lems with the courage and conviction he
Las shown in this latest act can he hope
to improve conditions within the depart
ment.
XEW JERSEY PARTIES AND
PLEDGES.
Mayor Wittpeun of Jersey City with
characteristic frankness puts himself
into the New Jersey political field first
of all as an avowed candidate for the
Governorship with a detailed and ex
plicit declaration of principled and
promises. Unlike most such manifestoes,
however, while it 'views with alarm" or
with severe disapproval the acts of the
opposing party, his letter does not to
any noticeable degree "point with pride"
to the achievements and record of his
own party. That is a circumstance which
is entirely creditable to both the integ
rity and the discretion of Mr. Wittpenu.
for assuredly In state affairs the Demo
cratic party in New Jersey has little to
which it could point with pride, unless
with a ft ladings, for Infinitesimals.
Memories of the old State House ring
and of racetrack legislation give warn
ing that if the party i* to find salvation
it must be through letting the past bury
its dead and trusting in the present and
future to men like the Mayor of Jersey
City. 0
It is to be observed that most of the
things for which Mr. Wittpenn arraigns
the Republican "party and demands its
repudiation at the ikjllm next fail are
sins of omission, in failing to fulfil its
ante-election platform promises, while
the few things which he does commend !
in the recent government of the state are
those which have been effected through
a fulfilment of such promises. In that he
confirms the warnings which Governor
Fort has repeatedly given to Republican I
legislators, that repudiation of pledges
i- dangerous and may tie disastrous, and
that the strength of a party lies in the
popular confidence which it commands
through a loyal and ungrudging fulfil
ment of Its pledges. It is also to be noted
that Mr. Wit 1 }M*tin'.s "admirable promises!
regarding his own policy if he should be
elected are In fact little more than a]
pledge to carry out the unfulfilled or
only partly fulfilled platform of the Re
publicans.
Now, we mr > Inclined to credit Mr.
Wittpenu with entire sincerity in making
theE« promises. But so 'was Mr. Fort
m:\>^ouk daily TRIBUNE/ Thursday, JUKE 23, 1910.
equally sincere in urging yome of the
very reforms which Mr. WiU^enn prom
ises to seek. In spite of strennous efforts
Mr. Fort has not been able to gat the
Legislature to fulfil Jill- the platform
pledges, and that fact forms the grava
men of Mr. Wittpenn's indictment of the
Republican state government. But what
assurance »is there that Mr. Wittpenn
would be any more successful in holding
■ Democratic Legislature up to its prom
ises? What is there vi the record of the
Democratic party of New Jersey to in
spire* such 'a hope? If there hud been
anything. Mr. Wittpenn should and
doubtless would have "pointed with
pride" to It. But there is nothing. In
that case his enlightened programme
and his admirable promises are too sad-,
Jy like ■ beautifully written draft upon
a bank which contains 1 no funds. |
MR. ROOSEVELT'S DENIAL.
Mr. Roosevelt's denial of the Albany
story of his expressed hostility to direct
nominations . is emphatic and complete.
This story, which was industriously
spread by tile opponents of the Governor
in Albany, will prove a boomerang to
them. The tactics which they have used
V) keep those legislators in line who have
been hearing from their constituents re
veal their weakness and desperation.
There is no Rules Committee with a
strangle hold upon legislation now, so
the tale about Mr. Roosevelt's quiet Biq»
port of the opponents of primary reform
had to be invented and whispered in the
strictest confidence about the capital.
Probably before the session is over there
will be much more "confidential infor
mation divulged which will be exactly as
truthful as this story which Mr. Roose
velt has felt called upon promptly to 1
deny.
The net result of the circulation of the
story is that- it called forth from Mr.
Roosevelt an emphatic rebuke for those
who have been using his name against
the Governor, and afforded to Collector
Loeb, the ex-President's closest politi
cal friend and follower in this state, an
occasion to make known his personal
sympathy with the purposes of the Cobb
bill and his desire to see it passed.
Doubtful lawmakers will not find in
either action any encouragement to join
m the anti-Kughes warfare, but rather
reason for rejecting persuasions based on
falsehoods.
MUCH AT STAKE IN OHIO.
The Ohio Democratic .State Conven
tion made Judson Harmon a contingent
candidate for the Democratic Presiden
tial nomination when it renominated him
yesterday for Governor. The platform
resolution presenting him in the larger
field avoided direct reference to the con
tingent character of the presentation.
But everybody in the convention as well
as out of it understood that Mr. Har
mon's availability in 1912 will depend
upon his carrying Ohio again next fall.
If he wins he will become the logical
Democratic nominee for President. If
ho loses he will be dropped from consid
eration as a candidate unable to carry
his own state.
Governor Harmon's strength in state
and national politics is not that of a
politician with ideas and aggressiveness,
but. rather that of a cautious opportunist
who has profited by the weaknesses and
blunders of others. His Democracy is
not deeply rooted, and is more a matter
of habit and environment than of con
viction, lie was able to serve in Presi
dent Cleveland's; second Cabinet and yet
quickly adjust himself to Mr. .Bryan's
leadership. He has always been "regu
lar" because he cares little for abstrac
tions and does not consider political" dif
ferences such as kept Mr. Cleveland and
Mr. Bryan apart really worth quarrel
ling about. He has no sympathy with
extremists and doctrinaires of any sort. If
he become a figure of prominence in the
national party he cannot avoid a clash
with Mr. Bryan. It will come not only
because of a divergence of interests, but
also because of a thorough incompati
bility of temperaments.
Mr. Harmon's lack of political imag
ination makes him a formidable candi
date in the present condition of Ohio
politics. He has appealed to a large ele
ment which in that state cares little for
party labels and principles, but applauds
a careful and lawyerlike administration
of state affairs. Mr. Harmon is not
partisan enough to excite political an
tagonism, and the work which he has
done at Columbus enables him to seek
re-election on his personal record as
Governor, and not on his party's political
professions. The Republicans of Ohio
should not make the mistake of under
rating his strength as a vote getter.
There are doubtless many Democrats of
the Bryan-Johnson faction who would
view Mr. Harmon's re-election as more
or less of a misfortune. A few of them
may go so far as to vote against him.
Yet he owed his election in 1908 to the
votes of Republicans dissatisfied with
shortcomings in administration at. Co
lumbus. His re-election seems to turn
on his ability to retain Republican sup
port. The nomination soon to be made
by the Republican convention will
therefore have a good deal to do with
shaping his campaign and determining
its result.
GERMANY'S AIM LINE.
Count Zeppelin's overhead transporta
tion line began its operations in a flat
tering manner, but who will venture to
say how long it will continue in busi
ness? Many times as much is charged
for carrying a passenger by airship from
Friedrichshafen to Dtisseldorf as a rail
way would ask lor the same service.
Hence only persons who hare plenty of
money to spend will patronize the new
route, and with most of them a single
trip, sufficient to satisfy curiosity, will
probably be enough.
After a short time, too, the difficulty
of making aerial journeys with regular
ity is likely to be sadly manifest. As
might be expected at this season, the
weather favored the undertaking, It
would be foolish, though, to count on a
continuance of the meteorological condi
tions which prevailed In Western Ger
many on Wednesday. Sooner or later
days will come on which delays at the
Btart and in arrival will be inevitable.
One or two such experiences will have a
highly discouraging effect on patronage
With the vast majority of those who
travel certainly in beginning and ending
a trip in of prime Importance. Vexa
tious as a mere detention is sure to
prove, Count Zeppelin and those asso
ciated with him in the new enterprise
may be thankful if nothing more serious
occurs to Interrupt their service. In the
United States many a summer day
which Is serene at its opening witnesses
sudden changes. What, guarantee is
there that one of the Zeppelin airships
will not be Involved in a ' disturbance
like that which visited New York City
lad Saturday? Could tbe balloon es
cape without disaster? How many of its
i passengers could hope to survive? Would
I not a single slripwreck, costing n dozen
j lives or more, paralyze popular enthusi
asm over the Wiirtemberscr's scheme?
SUMMER QUESTION'S. ,
Is there no age limit for the compul
sory retirement from active service of
music records, vocal and instrumental?
Cannot a city ordinance be framed to
that effect? Leaving aside all considera
tion of neighborhood comity, is it fair
to Caruso and Tetrazzini to create an
impression -that their voices are not
nearly what they used to.be, by continu
ing to reproduce them on records that
have grown hoarse and cracked from too
much use? And cannot the neighbors be
got io tippoint programme committees
among: themselves, so that too much
repetition of the same music will be
avoided /md simultaneous vocal and in
strumental competitions eliminated alto
gether? A Sousa march, the "Miserere,"
and the eavatimi from "Mignon" really
do not blend well upon the tympanum ; i
neither is it conducive to mental coolness i
to hear the aime aria three times in the
course of an hour or two. *
And cannot the landlord or the agent
move the apartment house telephone
switchboard out on the stoop, which ap
pears to bo the hallboy's post of duty
during the hot season? In this way will
be solved the great problem of sure con
noctiea when the tenants call up, or are
called, without; interference with the.
comfort and continued health of the uni
formed youths from the West Indies who
preside over our halls and manipulate
the cages of our elevators.
Why does not some enterprising manu- ■,
facturer-put out an alarm clock with a
muffled summer bell? Why, for that mat
ter, do the neighbors not spruce up
until midnight, and then start animated
conversations . punctuated with light
laughter? Why — have many more
summer ' questions to ask, but reserve
them for another day.
Governor Hughes's enemies In the
Legislature are hard put to reconcile
their blame of him for letting them send
him such his appropriation bills and
their anger at him for knocking: so much
out of those bills.
Thomas F. Grady thinks the title of
"Senator" has lost its honors. How
about the more exclusive title of
"Sen."?
Said "The New York Times" the othf-r
day: "Forehiunded patriots will be jus
"tified in putting two more white stars in
"the blue field on the national standard
"without delay." Those who follow that
advice will certainly be forehanded.
The federal government does not use a
flag containing 1 a new star until tho
Fourth of July following the admission
or" a new state. Arizona and New Mex
ico may be recognized as members of
tho federal household on or before
March 4. 191 1, if the process of organi
zation ,goes alone: without mishap. But
even In that case the two stars cannot
property be added to the flag: until July
4, 1911. They may not get on before
July 4, 1912.
With an ex-pitcher as their candidate
for Governor, the Republicans of Penn
sylvania will be sure of the baseball
vote.
Senator Grady is resuming his place
as leader of some of the alleged Repub
lican legislators In Albany.
Secretary Knox has promptly met the
criticism that the Southern States are
not adequately represented In the diplo
matic and consular service by saying
that the fault for that condition lies
with the people of those states. l£n
trancfs to tlm diplomatic and consular
services is now open to applicants on
th" baSid of merit, and the State De
partment would be gratified to have
more Southern candidates present'them
selves. Both services are non-partisan,
and appointments to the lower gTades,
protected by Civil Service rules, are
made after examination, political faith
or influence having nothing tv do with
th< selections. The Southern States can
easily enlarge their representation by
furnishing .more aspirants from whom
tj choose.
THE TALK OF THE DAY.
When "Pop" Mendels writes hia next his
tory of the New York curb market lie will
probably include an occurrence of yester
day which caused much comment. A mem
ber of the "street board" was arrested,
taken to the John street station houise,
then to theTomtif, where Magistrate Ap
plfton fined him $3 for skylarking. "The
crime for which our friend was put to all
this troubli " huH a member at an im
promptu indignation meeting after it was
all over, "was throwing a bag filled with
water out of a window, striking the popu
lar bootblack. The man who got the wel
come bath would nrver have made a com
plaint, but tlie" ambitious police officer arose
in his dignity and 'pinched* the broker."
In a recent talk on tho curb one of its
old members said: "The. way to keep young
is to be :t curb broker. No matter how
white a man's hair is, he'll be a boy while
his work is there," aid the law'a victim
of yesterday attributed hia plight to 1113

i A native of Bucksport, Me., who Is in
the banana business in Central America
had an experience recently at Port Llmon,
Costa Rica, that came near depriving him
of his vacation trip to his old home. He
stopped at UJuefieldß, where then? is a rev

cartridges, used and unusued, to take to
bJa New England friends as souvenirs of
the war. Leaving Nicaragua, the banana
grower stopped In Costa Rica on his way.
The alert officials th'cro confiscated his sup
lily of souvenirs as contraband of war. The
American was indeed fortunate that he
was not detained on suspicion of being a

V THE WEATHER.
Oh. say.
Vpn't you love the weather this way?
The keen, crisp air of. the bright, sharp
days
The orinklins? crack of the bedded snow,
Tlie white, cold touch of the sun's short
raya.
The- fresh, clean breath of the winds that
blow?
And hear the merry sleigh bells,
Jingling far and near,
Each its cheery story tells, .
Ringing sweet and clear.
Ain't it all fine?
Ain't it the goods,
From the town's white streets
To the cold, brown woods?
Shiver and shake and blow on your -augers.
Bundle up warm and face tha breeze.
Bright blue skies
And dancing eyes— ■«•>..
Don't have much show In days like these,
Do they?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.
ANTI-HUGHES ANANIAS CLUB.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I must congratulate The Tribune for
being the only paper with the enterprise
or the honesty to run down and authorita
tively deny the rumor, published without
inquiry by others, that Collector I^oeb.
speaking for ex-President .Koosevelt, had
declared against direct nominations. I see
by the afternoon papers that Mr. Roose
velt himself has now denied any expression
in opposition to Governor Hughes's meas
ures. The conscienceless activity of the
Governor's opponents in such mendacity is
a most illuminating spectacle to the plain
people. The bosses seem anxious to
nauseate- the public with themselves.

FOURTH OF JULY PARADE.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The Mayor's desire lor a sane Fourth
to prevent accidents among the children
i.s to be commended. But, after all is said
and done, the children havo no on© de
pendent upon them. A parade in the
streets of New York on July 4. with ordi
nary weather for that time of the year,
would be a physical hardship upon the
men. and might seriously affect their
health, and these men have people de
pendent upon them. The last great parade
on that day was held in Philadelphia, July
4. 1576, and resulted in some deaths and
the prostration from heat ran into the
hundreds, all of which can easily be veri
fied.
Almost all tho troops in tho city have a
ten days' tour of field duty this •anuner,
and In the fall will be ordered to Blanvelt
for rifle practice. They have already
paraded on one holiday— May 30— to do
honor to veterans of tho late war, whom
they are always glad to honor. In addi
tion to all this, to give up another day
and holiday seems rather hard.
The army, police, street cleaners, Fire
I^epartm^nt, national puard, ef., who
are called upon to parade, all lose a holi
day, and not only themselves bat their
families. It would teem that every effort
should be made to keep the. mothers and
children off the hot streets of tlie city
and to get them in the country, or, at
least, into th© parks or on the piers, and
to su!>piy-them there with music and tire
work?. VETERAN GCARDSMAN.
New York, June 21, l? 10.
CONTESTING WILLS.
Tb tiiP Kditor ot The Tribune.
Sir: When Mr. Wyman left his millions
to Princeton University we rinon saw ths
announcement that certain cousins would
contest the v ill.
If a man is in sound mind wlMn be
makes his bequests, what have cousins to
do with liis estate? Perhaps in life there
was no intercourse, no affection between
them and the testator. Many people would
not know some of their cousins if they
niet them on tho street. ]t makes one's
ilood boil to se« the frequent attempts
■ :ade by parties with the aid of hired at
torneys to get property to which they have
no righr, or, at lea^t, manoeuvring *v aa to
be bougkt off lor a goodly sum.
1 am writing this on general principles
and to touch a real evil often recognized.
Jf the Wyman cousins have a just claim
they can present it, but I do say, ail honor
to Airs. Mary Cutler, who withdraws from
a content, as The Tribune states to-day, on
the ground that she has no right to contest
Mr. Wynan'a will.
It should always briny social odium upon
any one to strive to Ineak a will with no
ground therefor but covetotiapess.
