CLAMIFIED.
Tn bhl convention speech yesterday ai
tackin? th<" principle of direct nomina
tions Mr. William Barnes, jr.. made an
.Tdroi- as clarifyins as it iras mo
raentous. He Mid that the direct nom
ination method was "not one-half as im
*'portant a< the confusion of mind which
'•advocates it." The substitution of the
direct for the indirect procedure, the Al
bany leader argued, "would practically
make nn difference." and be added:
It is not important from that point of
vleiv. If is only important ms to whether
you will permit your minds to be de
ceived by a wrong argument and not
ttand fa^t In your own belief.
Mr. Barnes has not been suspected of
taetaphysSca] tendencies. Most people
have thought that be was combating di
rot't nominations l>ecausp, la hi- ojiinion,
Ihey would put an end to the rule with
5n the party of the middlemen bo live

may understand Mr. Barnes m little

<\i "mental <Hinfusinns." It is not Mr.
liarnes\« fault if others are less capable
of pure reason than he is. He made I
noble effort to • iaae "confusion" out of
the Saratoga convention hall and made
the issue between the supporters and the
opponents of direct nominations clearer
than the most optimistic ever hoped It
ccuM bo.
THE STATE TICKET.
The Republican convention could
hardly have efeawa a candidate for Gov
ernor better litted 10 lead in a lYopres
sivf campaign than the nominee. Mr.
Henry L. Stimson. While he has never
bepn identified with «ny faction, or for
that matter prominent in political ac
tivities at all. Mr. Stituson's public rec
ord conform* to the Progressive ideals.
He has been an exceptionally useful and
efficient federal District Attorney in
this district, winning ■ notable triumph
iii his prosecution of the Sujrar Trust
customs frauds, in which with unusual
skill and persistence he brought puilt
home to the "men higher up." If the
aim Of the Prorrossiv** movement Is bo
war upon jrraft, to end the relations he
twoon corrupt business interests and
corrupt politicians, to punish the "nip
Croak*.** there is no one better qualified
by his record and by ail experience, to
be its candidate than Mr. Stimson.
His career will inspire confidence
amonc the voters. His nomination is
madp under circumstances not dissimilar
to those under which the first nomina
tion of Governor Hushes occurred. Mr.
Hushes came to be known favorably to
th*- voters through his exposure of the
insurance frauds as counsel for the
Armstrong investisratins: committee,
just as Mr. Stimson has acquired his
reputation with the public from his
successful prosecution of Sugar Trust
fnmds. Mr. Huches was then and Mr.
Srhnson is now ■ leading member of the
New York City bar. The fitness of Mr.
Hushes for the work of political regen
eration In this state was recognized by
The public from his services as counsel
••f the Armstrong committee, just as we
believe the ritness of Mr. Stimson to con
tinue that work of regeneration will be
recognized from his services as federal
prosecutor In this city. But the similar
ity between the two men is deeper than
that between the outward circumstances
of their candidacies. Mr. Stimson is a
■an of the Hushes type. His ideals of
public service are strikingly similar to
thos«* of the governor. His political
jiiin-: arc like those of ihe Governor.
He is by instinct ■ Progressive His
candidacy ought to appeal strongly to
the independent voters, for be has al
ways been favorably r<*sarded by in
dependents. being the favorite of the
Committee Of One Hundred for the non
partisan nomination i'<<r Mayor of this
city last fall.
Of Mr. Stimson's associates on the
ticket three, Samuel S. Koenigi. the can
didate for Secretary of State; Edwin EL
UMalley. of Buffalo, the candidate for
Attorney General, and Frank M. Will
buns, of Oneida. the candidate for State
Engineer and Surveyor, are renoxni
nated. AH three have been useful of
ficials and deserve re-election. Edward
Schoeneck, the nominee for Lieutenant
Governor, is a new name in state poli
tics. Be is Mayor of Syracuse, having
been elected last year. James Thomp
son, the candidate for Controller, is ■
prominent business man of Kensselaer
County. Thomas F. Fennell, of Elmira,
ihe candidate for State Treasurer, is at
present First Deputy Secretary of State.
With regard to the two vacancies
en the Court of Appeals bench, the
convention wisely took action tooking
to the nomination of the same candi
dates by both parties. Judge Irving <;.
Vaim is renomlnated, and the filling of
the other place on the ticket Is left to
a committee, after conference with the
Democrats. If the Democratic conven
tion renomlnates Judge Vann and names
with him an acceptable Democrat, the
committee will doubtless accept the
Democratic candidate. We bope that
will be th** result of the convention's
«-(Tort to further non-partisan judiciary
nominations.
77//; PLATFORM.
The din-ct nominations plank in the
Republican platform occasioned the
greatest debate in the convention, and
it will be the principal subject of dis
cussion throughout the campaign. It
reads as follows:
']'•■ Governor Hu£he<= is due the credit
of arousing the interest of the people and
convincing them of the need of directly
fk« tins their party officers and directly
nominating their party candidates. We
promise legislation which will enact
these principles into law.
The plank is brief nd the language
is general. But it is to be observed that
at :iny rate it goes much further than a
■periflc pledge to enact the Cobb bill
would have ;r<:ne It rocosnizes the fact
that Governor Hushes has aroused pub-
He interest in the necessity of directly
electing party officers and directly nom
inating party candidates — not some party
officers, but all party officers, and not
some party candidates, but all party can
didates—and it pledges the party to enact
this programme into law. The platform
does not promise direct primaries for the
selection of candidates for the Senate
and Assembly, for Congress and for
minor political offices, thus following 'he
terms of the Cohb bill, but direct pri
maries for the selection of party candi
dates in pen era 1. We think that the
declaration on this suhject will satisfy
the most earnest advocates of direct pri
maries. Certainly it went so far in the
support of Governor Hushes as to en
counter the most strenuous objection of
(hose whip defeated direct primary b'sls
hition last winter.
For the rest, the platform is enthusi
astic in its references to President Taft
So Chief Executive has ever been more
cordially and unreservedly indorsed.
The accomplishments of his administra
tion are praised in detail, and the plat
form says of him:
Each succeeding month since his in
ai:guratiun has confirmed the nation In
Its liiph estimate of hia greatness of
character. Intellectual ability, sturdy
common »«-nse. extraordinary patience
and perseverance, broad and statesman
like comprehension <•( public questions
and unfaltering and unswerving adher
ence to duty.
The excellence of Governor Hughes's
administration and the soundness of bis
leadership are recognized with equal
ftiluess and <-ordiality. The party is
pledged t'> continue the relentless war
fare u;«»u graft which it has bogiW and
to carry out thoroughly the bouse clean-
Ing it ana undertaken. Progressive leg
islaiiin for the Improvement of the con
dition* of labor, and in particular the

THE RIGHT TO PUBM UtL
Brief space is givrn in the daily news
to mention of a decision of the Court
Of Appeals which establishes a prin
ciple of much public importance and
which aaprka a {ratlfyinf advance in
the enforcement of what we may re
jrard as the natural rights of the people
apainst infringemen! throuch individual
selfishness or earelessnes=. The decision
was given in a R.xhester case, in which
a manufacturing concern had been fined
for polluting the air with smut smoke.
The concern denied the right of the
municipal government to enact an or
dinance imposing anck a penalty The
Court of Appeals upheld that richt and
the judgment was affirmed
It is thus Judicially determined that a
municipality' has the richt and power.
without special charter provisions, to
make reasonable regulations for pro
tecting the air from pollution. That
decision will be generally approved and
will, we doubt not. be widely accepted
as a precedent. But men now living
can remember a time when it would
have been regarded as absurd or in
sane, and when any restriction upon
pouring smoke into the air or sewage
into the water would have been greeted
with derision. The notion in those days
was partly that the air and watpp were
too enormously vast in *>Ntent and quan
tity to be susceptible of gerloua con
tamination, and partly that they were
so entirely free to all men for tbetr use
that any restriction upon the use of
them would be in tolerable tyranny.
ITie wiser and more equitable principle
now prevails that air and water are >o
BSnck the common property of all thai
bo individual has a right for his own
selfish purposes to impair their value tr >
liis fellows. A man can use the water
of the stream which borders his place.
but he cannot render it uufit for ihe
use of his neighbor. A man can use the
air for his own purposes, but lie can
not so use or misuse it as to make it
unfit for his neighbors use. The prin
ciple is reasonable and equitable, and
it may be hoped that it will generally
prevail, for the abatement of nuisances
affect ing all three dements <>f lnnJ,
water and .iir.
IX TEKNESSEE.
The fight for the restoration of respect
able government In Tennessee will un
doubtedly be aided by the newspaper
consolidation Jusi effected in Vasnville.
-The Nashville American," s thiek-and
thin supporter of Governor Patterson
and the Patterson machine, has been ab
sorbed by •'The Nashville Tcnnesseeau.*'
the anti-machine newspaper edited by
ex-Senator Carmack up to the time of
iiis death at the hands of the Coopers,
the Governor's i-\>>>*> friends and politi
cal lieutenants. The Patterson regime is
thus left without a defender i» -Middle
Tennessee, and it has few defenders in
the press eisew here. a Tne T. nnesseean"
will continue to work for the election of
Captain Hooper, the Republican and In
dependent nominee for Governor, be
<-.-,use it sees in s complete change ol
administration the only bope of driving
Patterson out of power.
The Governor has withdrawn as a
candidate, but be will undoubtedly
dominate the second Democratic con
vention which is soon to meet to name
his successor en the state ticket. He will
try to conceal his activities, but the new
nominee will represent him and the
policies for which be stands, including
the repeal of the present fair election
law and the present anti-liquor laws and
ihe continuation of the gerrymander by
which representation In Congress is in
equitably distributed among the three
divisions of the slate. The contest in
Tennessee this year is exciting attention
over all the country because it repre
sents the effort of a Southern commu
nity to subordinate considerations W nar
row partisanship \<< the general good and
to punish a parly machine which has
been guilty of grows misgovei nnient. If
Tennessee nuooeeds. otber Southern
states in which the continued dominance
of a single party has led to the misuse
of power may be encouraged to break
the Rhackle* and to think and act more
independently In i<«:ii politics.
TURKEY AND GREECE.
One of the most unfortunate features
of the present bickering and threatened
war between Turkey and Greece is the
fact that these conditions occur at a
time when both nations are apparently
earnestly striving to establish great
constitutional reforms. Turkey has re
cently freed herself from the absolutism
and barbaric tyranny and corruption of
the regime which brought the once
mighty empire of Othman and Amurath
to the wretched estate of the sick Man
of Europe, and she bar- now in hand the
working out of a thousand details of
reform and pi ogress. Greece has been
passing through ■ desperate constitu
tional crisis, and is even now engaged
in a work of governmental reorganiza
tion which it is hoped may be efficacious
for the prevention of further troubles.
in these efforts both countries deserve
and largely command the sympathy and
good wishes of the world.
It is obvious, however, that a war be
tween them would unfavorably affect.
these beneficent processes, It would al
most certainly interrupt and delay them.
if it did not undo and defeat them. For
that reason, as well as for the general
reason of disapproval of war. it is much
desired that the crisis may puss with
out an actual conflict, and it is credible
that the great governments of Western
Europe are exerting a more or less di
rect Influence to prevent such a catas
trophe. There is a sincere desire to
see the experiment, of constitutionalism
in Turkey succeed and to see the Greek
government placed upon a more secure
foundation. We can scarcely believe
that any power or league of powers In
Europe would, for the sake of selfish
aggrandizement, foment or even view
with passive satisfaction I war between
the two nations, which, however speedily
it ended In defeat for the weaker of
the two and however strictly it was con
fined, would almost certainly mean a
turning hue!: of the wheels of progress.
That is why there is so much delay
over the new Turkish loan. There seema
to lie a radical difference of opinion as
to whether i! could lie secured in Ber
lin. There is no doubt that Prance and
England are determined that it shall
not be secured there if they can help
it. but that it shall be got from one of
them probably from France— on terms
which will not only assure its security,
but also will strengthen the guarantees
of peace. There are doubtless some
weighty and exceedingly difficult prob
lems at Issue, between the two nations.
But these are not go urgent that a hasty
solution must be found iv war. Both
nations can far better afford to wait
patiently for a peaceful settlement, after
their own households have been more
completely net in order.

whether there was any truth In the report
that the Kentucky society was selling its
property with a view to disbandment and
that Shakerdom was dying out said: "I
relieve that the present phase of so-called
Shakerdom is dying out. but the Shaker
principle will live. Time will tell in no un
certain way. In the mean time let such
peace and quiet as is preferred in a death
chamber prevail as to the Shakers."

She has arranged with the author for

At a recent convention of deal mute* In
Austria, a theatrical performance took place
at the* Workingmon'H Home, Ottakrlng,
which was probably the, mo.st remark
ahle of itH kind ever witnessed. A company
of deaf mutes performed Schiller's "Fi
eMko" for tho benefit of a largn astccmblus*
of peiHOMf; similarly a.tii- tad. Tin- text had
be»»n modified to a grent extent, hut with
out destroying any of the original «cenes
and situations, and ao well waa the play
rendered that it evoked great, though
silent, applause. The spectators indulged
in animated conversation while the per
formance was in progress without in the
least disturbing the actors, and the evident
enjoyment of both the entertainers and the
entertained was, according to a deaf mute
historian of the occasion, "a triumph re
flecting glory on the new mode of instruc
tion."

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.
POWER OF THE STATE.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The Constitution of th« I'nited
Ptates. to be of any value, must be held in
violate or It will become Irrelevant. Con
stitutionalism is an Intangible quantity, yet
th« fundamental cornerstone of our repre
sentative government.
Prefix or addenda cannot strengthen, and
if applied may not weaken nationalism or
constitutionalism, but wedgflik'- may not b»»
as harmless a« appears. Old morality fa
survival of the tittert) and old constitu
tionalism stand forth as types of ancient
and modern virtue and hiehest citizenship.
Would they wax stronger If branded
"new"?
Countless forms of graft and evil are only
"local issues," and each state has inherent
power to curb Its own. It is seemingly easier
to corrupt one national control (which is
not superhuman) than forty-odd different
states militant! States (like people) which
depend on th« parent protection and h*ve
"nothing to do" grow lazy and Indifferent.
This nation at this juncture has monu
mental tasks assigned It undone. "Go to
the busy man" to get things accomplished
may apply in this case also, but this busy
national government is not 'a cure-all."

DIRECT PRIMARIES.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sr: The evidence has accumulated daily
tha f the Republican party of thi? state
nevrr before in all its career had such an
opportunity to demonstrate that that party
was really the party of progret:^, that it
really believed in and was true to the
high ideal? of its noblest founders.
It has become more distinctly evident
every day that these discredited leader?,
who obtained the aid of similar Democratic
bosses to defeat temporarily the chief pro
gressive measure? recommended by Gov
ernor Hughes, would tather see the Re
publican party defeated this fall than to
bave the state convention dt-clare un
equivocally for a really direct primary.
With a straight-out platform declara
tion of that kimi on the issue in which
a lnr^re majority of all the voters of all
parties iti this state are at this moment
most interested ihe regenerated, revivified
Republican party would undoubtedly en
joy the most enthusiastic campaign which
has aroused this stat^ for many years and
would score one of the grandest victories

TREATMENT OF BODILY ILLS.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: T wish to say througfl >o'ir ex.-cl
ient newspaper that there are too many
people nowadays who believe that all drugs
ami stimulants should be easily obtainable
without a physician's prescription at every
(•Miner <lruu' shop. Now, this assumption b
moat lamentable and too often dangerous,
for all human beings are even chemically
different, and consequently require, during
their periods nf Qmess and weakness, drugs,
stimulants an«l treatments differing ac
cordingly. Therefore, all persons should be
Riii«le«l when iHMennsij by the prescriptions
from the "family physiciaa."

PAYING FOR PEACE.
To the Editor <-f The Tribune.
Sir: I see that Janus McKnlght, of New
Brunswick. N. J.. has protested against the
government's excessive liberality to the
Civil War veterans in the matter of pensions,
but ha> Mr. McKnight stopped to consider
that there may i>.- elements in the country's
relations to the worn remnants of that
army which he has failed to grasp?
The majority of able-bodied nun and
boys of that tnne, through pure patriotism,
consented to constitute themselves targets
for the bullets of their opponents, who were
oroo.i riflemen and shot, to kill.
They did this to protect in peace the very
home tl.at Mr. al X light now enjoys in
New Brunswick, thai be might bs secure
from the strife and the terrors of war.
Those other heroes who never returned,
whose widows ate among the ones he criti
i isf-s. never could be compeaaated for the
part they took ill that aw^ I strife. O'ir
