Snpportexs In this state of the Mur
gtlir ticket have been extracting some
comfort from the fact that the real
Issue here, which they mJss entirely, has
been ajso misunderstood by a few West
ern newspapers of The Insurgent per-
Fuasion. Those newspapers have com
plained that Colonel Roosevelt, leading
the forces in control of the Saratoga con
vention, did not insist on a tariff decla
ration in the image of the declarations
constructed by the Kansas and lowa
platform maker-, who defined the Re
publican tariff i>ol!ey la exactly the
aaune terms iv which President Taft had
defined it. but refused to acknowledge
«ny kin hip J>etweon their <<wn ideas
and the President"*. IV New York
platform gave the President credit for
tl:e nutable advance made under his
le.';«!rrship toward a more rational appli
cation of tbe ]irotrcilve principle. That
ondooblcdly piqued some Western iu
6urp£Dis who have personal grievances
-•i gainst the Imlnistrattan, and their
dissatixfection has been made much of
by pen-uiis here who want to see the
Murphy state ticket el<»ct*»d In order to
rebuke both CcJonel Roosevelt and
President Trsft.
But there :jto eocie insurgent West
ern nswananm broad minded enough
to realize that the .Saratoga convention
had one thing to do of supreme im
portance. Its task was to oust from
control « s«'t of leader* who £tood for
a prrpet nation of tJje old order of rule
from the lap and to restore control of
the party organization to the voters. J»o
long as it accomplish<*d that task the
f.xnct shading of its declaration on the
tariff question, on which there are no
great differences of opinion among Re
publican voters either in tbe Baal or in
jhe West, was of minor importance.
Progressive Republicans — and, for that
matter, progressive Democrats-in every
state were legitimately interested in the
liberalization of party government in
New York They wanted to see the Re
publican -..id guard" put out of busi
ness, just as they still want to see the
tlight of Murphyism overcome.
"The Topeka Capital" is an insurgent
newspaper which sees just what the
real issue is in New York. It said the
other day:
The fact that practically all the New
York papers are fighting: Roosevelt as
the "boss of the Saratoga convention
does not necessarily imply that New
York is lost to the Republicans. . • •
No distinction Is made by these New
Yorkers between Roosevelt's bossism at
Saratoga and Murphy's at Rochester,
but there Is a distinction. There were
offensive bosses beaten to a frazzle at
one convention, and no bosses were
beaten at the other.
Many of our local contemporaries
raged against bossism and the biparti
san alliance at Albany so long as the
bosses seemed safely intrenched. But
since the Republican party actually set
its house in order, and gave indisputable
evidence of its intention to carry to a
finish the reconstructive work begun by
Governor Hughes, those theoretical ad
vocates of righteousness In politics have
undertaken to punish it for having re
generated itself, and are laboring for the
success of the Democratic party, -which
has shown no signs whatever of intend
ing to mend its -ways. The Republican
"old guard" having been cashiered, the
newspapers which should have aided In
its fall and>rejoiced at it are now try
ing to build up the power of the Demo
cratic "old guard." with Murphy and
Grady at its head. The illogicality of
that, policy is apparent nearly every
where outside New York, although it
seems not to be obvious in certain local
newspaper offices.
What will Republicans and inde
pendents who are dissatisfied with the
Republican party in this state, who are
angry at Alldsism and indignant at the
opposition to Governor Hughes, accom
plish by voting the Democratic ticket?
They may elect Mr. Dix Governor. Mr.
Dix is certainly Murphy's candidate,
nominated by a convention which all
observers agree was more completely
dominated by the Tammany boss than
any previous convention ever was. To
what extent ftr. Dix is Murphy's man as
well as bis "candidate it is safe to judge
from the circumstances. Mr. Dix was
one of the organizers of the Democratic
League, which played into Murphy's
hands, helping him to unseat Conners
and make himself undisputed master of
the Democratic machine. Mr. Dix was
then chosen by Murphy to be chairman
of the Democratic State Committee,
since which time he has evinced a ca
pacity to get on in perfect harmony with
the Tammany boss, and the net result
of his work as state chairman is that
Murphy's power In the Democratic
party is greater than it ever was before.
Murphy has tried him. found him satis
factory and nominated him for Gov
Furthermore, the rest of the state
ticket is thoroughly Murphyized. With
a characteristic eye on the main chance,
the two state offices which have to deal
with the state's finances and contracts
went to Tammany 'men. But that is not
all. The Attorney General who will
have charge of the state's Department
of Justice will be, if the Murphy ticket
is elected, the useful Carmody, who
scandalized the state by bis actions
when presiding at the Carnegie Hall
convention where the foundations of
Murphy's power in the state were laid.
Murphy depended upon him then and
can depend upon him now. With this
ticker elected . the whole state adminis
tration would be Tamraanyized.
Then we pass to the Legislature: It
Is there that fault :s found with the
Republican party, c<\r^ainly not in the
governorship, for the universal testi
mony is that the party has just given
the state one of its greatest and best
governors. It was in the Legislature
that one Republican leader «>f the Sen
ate received large sums of "apprecia
tion money," and his successor, the
notorious Allds, took a bribe. The Re
publican party, however, has got rid of
AJlds and his kind and has shaken itself
free from the control of those who
backed him. But, on the other band. If
the Democrats control the Legislature
the leadership of the Senate will go to
Grady, Allds's old crony, who defended
him when he was on trial and voted for
his acquittal. With Grady will be asso
ciated the two Suilivans. Culleu and
Frawley. who also voted for Allds's ac
quittal and who have been for years
members of the non-partisan "old
guard" which has dominated the Senate.
If the Democratic party is successful
Ailds'ti supporters will have the chair
manships of the leading Senate com
mittees and will dominate the legisla
tive situation at Albany. A vote for the
Democratic party is ■ vote to put in
power the kind of men and the sort of
influences which Governor Hughes has
driven out of public life and which bis
friends have forced out of control of the
Republican party.
There can be no doubt thai this Is a
time of anxiety and apprehension for
the Spanish government, and with ample
cause. Then* is in actual existence ail
extensive strike among the miners of
Catalonia, who are a particularly reso
lute and formidable body of men, and
this is confessedly of a political and
revolutionary as well as of an industrial
and economic character. There is also
abundant evidence of correspondence
with the purpose of co-operation be
tween the republican revolutionists of
Spain and those of Portugal. Finally,
to-morrow -.ii! be the anniversary of
the putting to death of the revolu
tionist Francisco Ferrer, and for that
day widespread anti-clerical and anti*
dynastic demonstrations have been
planned. These latter have been forbid
den by the government, and the tinny
will be employed so far as may be nec
essary to enforce the prohibition, but it
is possible to repress apprehensions"
thai this action may prove to be a dis
asiroua screwing down of the safely
There are, however, amid various re
;.•!...--. several radical differences
between the situation in Spain and that
which provoked the change of govern
ment in Portugal. Unlike the Incor
rigible "rotativist" scheme of graft at
Lisbon, the Madrid government is sin
cerely striving to effect economies and
to promote efficiency, and it would be
difficult to demonstrate that it Is not
doing ■a well in those respects as ■ re
publican government could reasonably
hope to do. Moreover. Mr. Ca'nalejai is
certainly not under clerical control, but.
on the contrary, be has strongly antag
onized the clericals by his inflexible en
forcement of the civil law as superior to
any ecclesiastical establishments and
practiced An anti-clorical movement
should seek him as its leader rather
than opi>ose bin as its enemy.
Napier once said, however, that in the
case of a Spaniard it was impossible to
discern his motives from his acts or to
forecast his acts from his motives. Per
:.<;:.<; i the same might be said of other
peoples* Prejudice in all men is unrea
soning. Many are to-day making a
fetich of Ferrer's name, who in his life
were regardless if not contemptuous of
him. and many are raging against the
liberal and progressive administration
of Mr. Canalejas because of the narrow
and reactionary policy of Mr. Maura
years ago. Moreover, while the Spanish
government expresses and perhaps feels
entire confidence in the loyalty of the
army, it must be remembered, as we
pointed out yesterday, that similar con
lidenee was expressed in Portugal only
a fortnight ago. There may be no suffi
cient reason for an outbreak in Spain
to-morrow, but there can be no doubt
that the Spanish government will ex
perience i profound and grateful sense
of relief when to-morrow is safely past.
Kvery odp will agree with Mayor Gay
nor's sentiment in his letter to Chief
Magistrate M>Adoo that it is better tn
diminish crime and vice "steadily and
unostentatiously" than to <lo it sensa
tionally, Meeterlng the city's wickedness
from the house tops." The main point is
that the law he enforced, that vice and
crime he kept within practicable bounds,
that the police force be held to the per
formance of its dntv and prevented from
grafting. If the public could nt any time
feel reasonably sum that thesp things
were being accomplished quietly and un
ostsntatioasly it would be impossible to
"scandalize the city" and raise a sensa
tion But it is about these things that
the public has disquieting doubts The
demoralization of the police has been ap
parent in recent months as seldom be
fore. The situation at Police Headquar
ters would at times have bordered on the
farcical, if tiie importance of what was
involved had not made that impossible.
The conditions at Coney Island were
more or less of an open scandal.
Often the only treatmeuf of the police
situation possible involves publicity and
scandalizes the city The attitude that
this is the most decent and orderly city
in the world has favored police corrup
tion in the past. It was one of Mayor
Gaynor's predecessors in the worst days
of police corruption who said th.it
Devery was tbe best cbief New York
ever had. By all means let Mayor Gay
uor set the police situation in order
quietly and unostentatiously just a
as be has sufficiently recovered bis
health to buckle down to the task Let
him make the administration of the
Police Department a Buccess in bis own
way. But neither he nor any oup e!sr>
should assume that it is now a success.
■ There was renewed at last night's
meeting of the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers a reminder of the
great need of more adequate protection
against fires through the employment of
fireproof materials in building. Statistics
are proverbially dull reading, but there
is something more startling than sopo
rific in the statement that in a year the
losses through fires in this country
amount to nearly half as much as the
cost of the new buildings erected: or.
that our fire losses are proportionately
five times as great as those of Europe.
There is. under such eircumstan«r«. ob
vious need of the conservation of arti
ficial creations and equipments as well
as of natural resources. If we are to
protect our timber where it is growing
in forests, we should protect it where it
is fashioned ii"<* houses and furniture.
Indeed, the profligacy of carelessness and
preventable waste in the latter instance
is greater than in the former, since not
only the material but also the labor ex
pended upon it Is lost And of course
there is often the additional loss of hu
man life involved in tires.
It would bo a reproach to American
ingenuity' and enterprise if we should
fail to devise efficient methods of tire
prevention, primarily in fireproof con
struction, and after that in Improved ap
pliances for extinguishing tires which do
occur. It would also throw doubt on the
practical utility of governmental admin
istration if. such methods having been
devised and convincingly demonstrated,
we were to neglect their general enforce

cism lias been the Increase in Btate ex

large Increase, but there lias been a cor

the taxation of corporations and with

the people. Indeed, for all these years
there has been no direct state tax what
ever upon the people. Perhaps still more
to the point is it thai there are adequate
results to show for the expenditure. The

St. Joseph. Mo., has suffered the hu

figures of 1900 exposed by a subsequent
honest count. The number of inhabi

was 102AH79, showing an apparent gain
of 96.8 per cent. The census of 1010 re
ports only about 77,000 inhabitants— a
paper loss of nearly 28.000. The real in
crease from 1890 to 1910 was 25,000.

He Denied That "Protestantism Is Dy
ing Out," Instead of Asserting It.
To tho Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Referring to Father Vaughns recent
sermon In St. Patrick's Cathedral, in wblch
he commented on the "quotation" of re
cent words of mine l>>' certain newspapers.
I would simply reply that the newspapers
make me to say: 'Protestantism Is dying
out and soon will be a thing of the past." I
did not say this. I only quoted it from
Father Vaughn himself. I denied the state
ment when I quoted it- I deny it now and
demand the proof.
I am exceedingly chagrined at the com
pany in which I am placed by this misquo
tation. I make the correction with no
thought It will ever in this world overtake
the falsehood, but to relieve my friends
and acquaintances fmm embarrassment I
thank you in advance for the favor granted
me in publishing this statement.

Brooklyn, Oct. 11. 1910.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: It seems that not alone the bird
men are to exploit the empyrean. "Sinai,
Olympus and- Calvary are but tbe sacred
stepping stones to that secular elevation
whereon free thought shall range here
after, when the old scars of superstition
shall have vanished to the limbo whence
they came." So says or sings the vener
able, if not precisely reverend. Paul Blood,
apostle of "the anaesthetic revelation."
from whose savin? the late William James,
of Harvard University, quotes "the heraldic
device of the philosophy of the future" in
"The Hlbbert Journal." "Let his be my
last words," says James in the last article
that he published, and this is that word:
"There is no conclusion! What has con
cluded that we might conclude In regard
to it? There are no fortunes to be told
and there is no advice to be given. Fare
well!" If this looks like a rather shaky
ensign to be borne into v cloudy future
the darkness becomes mere visible, If pos
sible, when the anaesthetic Blood apostro
phizes it thus! ''Arid thus this mumbling
mystery still hovers above hospital and
laboratory, awaiting articulation, while,
like wild hawk of Walt Whitman, un
tamed and as yet untranslatable, it sounds
Irs barbaric yawp over the books of the
This is high flying surely some may re
gard it as highfalntin: but the loyal James
still quotes his author's own pplf-pncour

of the obsequious meridians will bow
to him. and gra< ions latitudes will meas

To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In your l?sue of to-day the Rev.
Dr. Aked is quoted as having saM that
"toleration is an intolerant and intolerable

the truth of such a statement and call it

To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The Tribune and I are old friends
of about the same age, rather advanced as
the y*>ar.s count, but la purposes as virile
as in our youthful days. Have we not lived
to see that "new times demand new meas
ures and new men, and we in time out

Sir: A lotter written by a brother of

in. <i,,e.s not detract from tho reputation
of Miss Corelll, but simply justifies her in
disowning those who established a. prece
dent when they forfeited all claim t>> her
relationship at the time sh^ became an
adopted member of the Macfcay family.
It. t.h a hfflploas infant, she was one too
many in a numerous household, by what
species of argument art; the relatives en
titled to share the dUtlm tion and pros
perity to the attainment of which they con
tributed nothing? Cannot an author whose
books were the favorites <>f Queen Victoria
j<nd received the serious approbation of
Mr. (Gladstone, and who possessed -suf
ficient (enIUS to appeal to two such oppo
sito characters, safely be regarded as a
student <>f human nature and capable of
diatir.fcuishing friends from foes?
In her adopted home, deprived of play
mates which her natural family circle would
have BUfftHeda she lived in a dream world
m the midst of books. From out those
dreams no doubt came the name "Corell!."
The reading public will concern itself only
with the literary merit of Miss Corelli's
works, but for the benefit of posterity
might it not he well to establish t!i« fact
that Miss I'orelll-Mackay-co'iy is one and
the same person, and thus avoid another

There was no reason save in patty stu
