PRtilAttrES A\n rir.ii- BEVTt
ui:\t.
The utter Inadequacy of the euotlng
primary system to red«^t publle e-cnti
m<»nt fully is beinp brought but hi the
present ooctost in Ibis state. Put boldly
th«» issue is whether the Republican
itartr Is with President raft, Governor
Hushes and ex-President Roosevelt or
with Messrs. Barnes. Wadswortb. Wood
ruff and Ward. If that question eenid
be placed squarely before the Repub
licans of tL«» state ther* Is not the
slightest doubt how an overwhelming
majority would stand. Such an alterna
tive presented to the party verges nu the
ludicrous. Yet. under the existing pri
mary E-ystein, the "representative sys
tem" so-called, the discredited petty
bosses are abl« to create the impression
that they have nearly as many followers
amonc the Republicans as the President,
the Governor and (he er«T popular
colonel.
We hare already alluded to the absurd
results obtained under the "representa
tive system," to the reactionary ism of
Kin;rs and the i>rogressivisin of New
York County, two neighboring counties
in one city. No such difference in the
point of view of Mauhattan and Brook
lyn exists. Brooklyn does not. prefer the
leadership of Barnes and Woodruff to
that of "Faff, Roosevelt and Hughes any
more than Manhattan does. Colonel
"Abe" Gruber's district in Manhattan
has Mr, more fear of the new nationalism
than the districts north, sooth and ea«t
of it, yet the primary declares that it
has. And th« results which the "repre
sentative system" produces up the
are just m absurd as those obtained
down here. Of three counties In the
sani« gen^r«l neighborhood, all rural, one
is for Barnes and Woodruff, another is
for Roosevelt »i"1 the third is "on the
fen^e.*' It i«; impossible to believe thai
any such difference in the actual attitude
of tli« farmer* in those counties exists.
It seems to be conceded that Buffalo
will send Progressive delegates to th?
state convention, while. Albany and
Syracuse will send supporters of the
"old jruard." Does any one suppose that
if every Republican in those three cities
voted on the question whether the ps»rty
should follow the leadership of Taft.
Roosevelt nnd Hughes or that of Barnes
and Woodruff th* 1 result hi Syracuse
and Albany would differ greatly from
that In Buffalo? ...
Tbe truth Is that, big ;js ihe issue is
before the Republican parly. the pri
maries now being" held are with few ex
ceptions clrlnsr m not the view of the
party, but The Tien of the machine.
And 50 eJoso is tb° relation between
those who run the machine and the mi
nority which votes at tbe primaries that
primary results are hardly any mor«»
significant tJian they would he if the
boas was authorized by law to cast all
the votes himself. Delegates are picked
out who will do the bidding of the ma
chine and to the primaries come ouly
these on whose vote the machine, ran
count. Why should any one else attend?
With -hr biggest controversy raging in
the party that lias occurred for several
years in the recent primaries, there were
no rontcf*ts in f'irty-poven of the fifty
swea Assembly districts of New York
and Kings counties, a*nd in the districts
in which there were contests, with one
or two exceptions, the issue was aot the
hams which is dividing the Republican
party, the one in which the whole state
is interested, but some petty one !»«•
tween two local personages: Could any
thing better show the complete lack of
relation between tbe present primaries
and the real Issues with which public
opinion is concerned?

"The Smm York World*' is busy en

voters to elect a Democratic Omgress
and Democratic governors and state
legislatures this year not. because Hie
Democratic party deserves j>u<\-ess hut

would have a rnanco to redraw the lines

under a new federal apportionment. it
i, obvious wh3t will happou If the duty
ol reshaping the Congress districts In
any Northern elate is committed to a
Democratic legislature. The Democratic
party, returned temporarily to power,
would defy the. spirit of the federal law.

state as it as gerrymandered every
Southern and border Mate where parti

dient desirable.
It is charged by "The World' that the
rcdlstricting of Republican states after
the census of 1900 was "performed in ;•
; ■artisan fashion." Yet the present appor
tionment of Jtepresentalives iv the Re
publican states is exceptionally fair and
exceptionally generous to the minority.
practioalrjr the only instances of gross
partisan discrimination are la the states
under Democratic control. In New York
in iJ*»' last (en roars ilie distribution of

strength shown by the parties in state
and national elections. in JDOS, when

i Virginia a legislature recently for parti
rap. s reasons changed the lines of two
districts, detaching » county from the
smaller district, to add it to the larger
one. «nd one of the Elections commit
tees of the House of Representatives has
recommended the unseating of th* sit
i ting Democratic member because of that
patent violation of the spirit and letter of
the federal apportionment law of 1901.
Independent and Republican voters
asked v to turn the power of apportion
ment over to Democratic legislatures in.
Northern states will do well to consider
the notorious record of the Democratic
party as a promoter and beneficiary of
gerrymandering.
THE FROBLCM FOR THE STREET
RAILWAYS.
The catting off of transfers by the
Metropolitan Street Railway Company
has not turned out to be the saving of
that company. To be sure, it did not go
so far as BOOK '•'" those WhO were prov
ing a couple of years ago tbat transfers
were bankrupting the street railways
would bare carried it. but it did go
far euougb to disclose some merits If It
bad any. Nothing Is heard nowadays
of this short way to restore the prosper
ity of the traction lines, bo it Is fair to
suppose that faith In Its efficacy Is
gone. And it is no wonder, when the
returns of the Metropolitan system with
its transfers materially reduced are con
sidered.
The great, savings in operating ex
penses wbh»h were to be effected by not
carrying passengers "free" do not ap
pear to have materialized. for during
tbe year which ended on June •'•. 1910.
operating expenses were 70 per cent of
gross earnings. And net income after
taxes and rentals bad been deducted
was so small that the reorganization of
iho company is evidently going to be a
difficult problem.
But perhaps th*» most serious symp
tom for the, company is the fact that it
no longer receives its share of the great
growth of traffic In this city. With the
subway carrying 30,000,000 more pa"
sengers last year than the year
before and the Manhattan elevated
lines carrying 17,000.000 more, the Met
ropolitan street railways carried only
2.500,000 more. And since the placing
of fare boxen at the entrance of street
cart has probably resulted In ■ more
complete registration of passengers than
formerly whs possible, it Is probable
that the Increase on the street railways
Is even le.as than the figure! Indicate.
This failure of the street railways to
get their share of th* growing traffic
ha been evident from the statistics at
least for tbe last two years. It con
stitutes the gravest problem for their
saanagement
WHY yOTf
"The Nashville American';' chides 0
for misunderstanding local . sentiment,
when we suggested that the "near beer
which they sell down where the Cumber
land flows would probably In time as
suage the thirst and placate the palate
of Middle Tennessee as effectively as the
nearer beer of precious memory. We
cited the fact thai Berlin loves itsmikl
fwelss bier" even more Than it. does its
lager of heavier alcoholic content, and
S3 id that there was no reason why prae
tfeally dealcoholized beer should not be
popularized ha states in this country
with prohibition tendencies. But "The
American* protests more iv sorrow than
in anger that if our suggestion was
meant seriously it is only amusing.
Fancy an indignant anti-prohibitionist
hi Tennessee, who clamors for the repeal
of the "state-wide" law and resists it*
loeyl enforcement, contenting himself
with . ni amber fluid not banned by that
law, however reminiscent its taste and
however natural its color and collar!
What they want apparently with every
j_'i;jss of beer in Tennessee is a certificate
that the brew contains enough alcohol
to put it in the bad graces of the pro
bibltionifit*.
Our N'asbvllle friend should i in? re
prove us for trying i" show that, good
palatable beer and a prohibition law are
not mortal enemies. A recent report
from the American. Consul General in
London describe! a new English ale. al
most indistinguishable from the old
fashioned article in looks :iud taste,
which la ■=•■> brewed that It contains only
nine-tenths of i per rout of alcohol.
The only difference Is in the after effect
and that difference may be put to th<
,,,.., beverage's credit. Deer and ale are
really all the better for having a low
percentage of alcohol, as Ilie German
beers drunk in Germany demonstrate.
Why should Nashville despair? If it
cuts out tli'' Idea that alcoholic strength
is th" sole teat of virtue in the contents
of the foaming stein. It can renew a
happy past without fear of friction with
the state-wide law or of kataenjanuners
the morning after.
SHOCKfSG ETYMOLOGY.
\ receut correspondent's offer of
"electromortkm*' as a substitute for
"electrocution hi uot acceptable. Be
jnond doubt "electrocution*' should be

But if ■ single word is to l^- used, and
if one must be coined for 111^ purpose
let us cot jump from the frying pan of
TlPotrfK-ttiion" into the tire of "electro

former :r* # hyl>rid." it in. but so is the
batter, glllcc it is 'half Greek and half

correspondent, in tho Mum letter mi;:
gestcd the desirability of *% food substl
"tutP for that other barbarism 'automo
"bile."' But "automobile" Is not nearly
as barbaric as "electrotuortion,*' sinrp
while strictly speaking it is half Greek
and half Latin. Its Greek half is by no
moans unknown or unused In Latin.
It la not an ideal word, but. there- la
some shadow of. justification for it.
If we must have a single word for
death hi th* electric •'hair. and if ii most
be of classic derivation. 'Vlertmthr.n

and euphonious : or perhaps "clectro

"clectrum" and "thanato?." But why
turn to th» classics? Why not follow the
analogy of "ban?in?," "shoot In?." "be

By the way. will some mathematical

IHE TALK OF THE DAY
!he Stock Exhange has th« name of
being the noisiest business place in the city
and it probably deserves the name." said a
member of that body, "but when the noise
ceases, as it has of late for lack of busi
ness, the Influence on the floor members
Is like the stopping of the machinery on a
liner in mtdocean. The noise is part of the
game and we haven't had enough of it of
late. One day recently, when the silence
became unbearable, a. member put on an
orderly's suM and sprinkled the floor, pay
ins more attention, however, to the legs of
his fellows. The bit of merriment cost him
a pretty penny in Ones, but tho member
who appeared a few days later on roller
skates escaped the argus in the chair and
succeeded In furnishing a noise without
coat to any one."

tried to beat the government out or no per

a:id well worth reading. There arc 100
many 0/ the ilk of that follow endeavoring
to avoid their just debts nowadays, ami
it was high time-. that Collector Loeb got
after them at the customs end. And to
the minds of fair-thinking people he took
a step in the right direction when he pot
after them. I have recently returned from
abroad, and, 'having declared- my foreign

PATRIOTISM AND POCKETBOOK3.
To the "Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In your issue of to-day I ne^ among
letters to the editor one suggesting that
you get around among the different classes
of men and learn their opinion of Colonel
Roosevelt's present "conduct."
Beiiif; a travelling man, I get around a
little, and, aside from finding an occasional
business man who feels that the present
campaign of education is affecting' his busi
ness and Is therefore disgruntled, my ex
perience is that Roosevelt's following: is as
great as. If not greater than. ever. If we
must have Fom« depression In business for
a time in order to right certain wrongs,
let's have It, and not allow our patriotism
to cease where- our pecketbook begins.

Bir: Th«« letter published to-day in The
Tribini .vi signed William 11. Carlin is
most • '.■:!.-<■' \ ative. I. too, have been a
stead\. ••' stent voter for the Republi
can pan . -lit for nearly fifty Instead of
twenty year*, and, coming In contact with
many Republicans, I have lately been pur
prised In find bo many utterly onaaMd to
Roosevelt and Roosoveltism.
One evening last week I attended a social
meeting of Grand Army men. being a vet
eran myself, cad when during the evening
reference was mad« to Roosevelt 1 was
thunderstruck to And that every man hi
the room— fit! or twenty, all Republi
cans — expressed themselves as disgusted
with him anA his methods. They all, with
out a dissenting voice, said they would
BO vote the Republican ticket th] fall If
Roosevelt dictates the platform or the nom
ination, and the wish was unanimous that
Mayor Gaynor might gel the Democratic
nomination.

TYPHOID IN RAW FRUIT.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The Stats Commissioner of Health
of Pennsylvania. Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, has
wisely called attention* to th» danger of
eating unwashed raw fruit, in a circular
letter recently issued Dr. Dtxon says«:
"Fruit which may look very attractive
when served at a meal has very probably
been handled by many human hands,
transported lons distances and exposed to
much dirt and th« visitation of Insect?, par
ticularly Bid of various species.
"It is too soon for even our very young
people to forget the food that was infected
with typhoid fever by files which caused
so many deaths among our soldiers in the
Spanish-American War.
"Before r?w fruit Is eaten " should be
carefully washed with pure water, and
tj.oUed fruit, which attracts a great va
riety of insects, should never be eaten raw.
The time and energy required to wash raw
fruit are a bagatelle alongside of a case
of typhoid fever.' '" •'- ktxtneh.
