Mr. Dixs attitude toward the Public
F*;rvie<s commissions is a good deal
Jlk<» Mr. {^hauler's attitude two years
ago toward the anti-taoctrack gambling
Jaws. Mr. Chanler started out in IMS
with a word of nape for those who
wanted the special privilege of gambling
■I the racetracks restored. The gamblers
ail looked to him as their deliverer
from the "persecutions"' of Governor
Hughes. When he got <<v t li« - stump up
the state In- found that the odium of
liis racetrack support was 100 heavy a
handicap to carry, and after dodging
the question for a week or two lie came
out wit!» a statement that, if elected,
he would not sign a new Percy -< .1 a\
Mr. Dix lia^ similarly travelled all
round the circle on the issue of ;iix»l
ishins the Public Service commissions.
He ran for UsSaBBBtSJI Governor in '/.)■*<
«•! a platform denouncing these com
missions aud demanding ill*' repejil «;f
Hi*- law creating ilj«m The Democratic
tarty in this state is still loasfttad '<>
thai programme, for the Democratic
platform adopt «*d at Bochcster last
month «lid not retract or annul the dec
laration of urns, It merely said that
It favored 4 "reasonable"* regulation of
public service corporation- as it
•lias always favored— without Indicating
ih3t it had in any way become recon
ciled to tlie commission in which it
vehemently denounced two years before.
Mr. { .\ -aid :;ftcr his nomination for
Governor that as regards the Public S -r
■*i'*e commissions he blood ou Ibe Demo
cratic platform, and Ik* repeated the
f:tatem*>t on Tuesday night at Buffalo.
But he coupled with it the eß * il *Hj
inconsistent assurance that he favored
"the continuance and enforcement of
these laws.- presumably the laws creat
ing the' commissions and establishing
their control over public ■«*■■■ cor
jwa t ions.
Mr. Dix therefore demonstrated that
he stood on the Democratic platform (lV
hurriedly petting off of it. just as he had
previously demonstrated his concern for
a downward revision of tariff duties all
along the line by appealing through
"WiMiCd Partner" Hupjnjcb to tbe Ways
and Means* Committee of the House of
Representatives for an increase in the
duties on the particular product which
he and Mr. HuppuHi manufacture.
Theoretically. Mr. Dix always stands an
the Democratic platform as heroically as
the boy. stood on the "burning. deck, but
practically, when his private interests
on touched or when the flame of public
criticism gets too hot, he reserves to
himself the convenient liberty of step
ping off.
So the Rochester convention did have
a boss after all! We hare been assured
over and over again by the editorial
pages of our contemporaries who usually
shout themselves black in the face about
the bossing of the Democratic conven
tions of Tammany Hall that this con
vention was an exception, and had no
Ik>ss! Editorial pages, we say, for the
news eaaaananl of the same papers at the
time of the convention with singular
unanimity declared that Murphy had the
delegates "in the hollow of his baud."
Now it Iff— that both the news col
umns of those papers and their editorial
pages were mistake!:, a remarkable situa
tion considering that between them they
appeared to occupy both sides of the
question! The convention did have a
K»ss: And that bass wss not Murphy!
The Ik'ss was our good friend Mayor
Gaynor. It appeal that It was not
Murphy but Gaynor who held the con
vention -in the hollow of his hand."
Nobody discovered it at the time, and
there is nothing for our contemporaries
to do but to discipline their correspond
ents for failure to learn that Gaynor
was the boss of The Rochester gather
ing and that he. not Murphy, held it "in
the hollow of Ms band.? The confer
ences In "Boom 212" were only an
empty form. Nothing was determined
there. The convention did not wait
until the last message, "You are wanted
in Baom -I--" had been heeded and
every one was cognizaut of the plans
formed there. It waited solely until the
boss at St. lames could be heard from
finally, and when Man Friday Creelman
appeared with the orders the nomination
of Dix took place. That Boss Gaynor
chose the man whom Murphy had made
state chairman, and who in that ca
pacity was supposed to have helped
Murphy get the convention "in the hol
low of his hand." was purely a coinci
dence. Or perhaps the boss wanted to
shew that he was not merely Indulging
his sardonic humor when he asked the
public to "say ■ good word for Murphy/
"The New York World" said yester
day, commenting on Mr. Dixs Buffalo
speech :
For this reason Mr. Dix i 1i 1 his address
las' night at Buffalo very appropriately
renewed the solemn words of his speech
of acceptance that Mr. Roosevelt him
self, his record, his ambitions, his char
a«^v, his methods, arc th<s most vital
ii-siio ever presented to Hie people of
New York.
But if this be true, why does our
Mend and neighbor continue to accuse
Colonel Roosevelt and Mr. Stimson of
"running away from the cost, of living,**
as if that were the real question in
this campaign? If the snuffing out of
Republican institutions impends, as "The
World" thinks it does, and can be pre
vented only by tlie election of Mr. Dix
as Governor of this state, every intelli
gent person will agree that the strength
ening of Mr. EHx*B good right arm for
"king killing" purposes is "the most
"vital issue ever presented to the people
'•of New' York."
The subversion of the Constitution,
which, we are told, Mr. Dtx's election
alone can forestall, would certainly rank
higher la our calendar of political
calamities even than the "Crime of
'73." The patriots who condemned
that crime also made it ■ "vital." not to
say "paramount,*' Issue both in New
York and over the entire country. The
Democratic party set out in 1886 to re
pair the consequence's of the tragedy
and stuck to the fob of repairing them
for several years. It kept its eye fixed
on the crime and the criminals and d'd
not allow itself to be diverted by side
issues of any sort. Those who have
rallied behind Mr. Dix as the sole hope
of republican Institutions at thai critical
Juncture should treat their paramount
issue with the same solemnity and single
mindedaess with which their predeces
sors treated the "Crime of "7:?." What dif
ference does it make whether cakes
nud ale are ■ little dearer or a little
cheaper, if we are to be obliged to
consume them in dejection and servility
under the folds <>f an odious royal Hag?
Isn't the "king" issue— "the most vital
"ever presented to the people of New
"York"'-- enough to hold the centre
of the. stage of •jiolitics for at least six
Judgments come quickly at The
Hague, annulling the old practice under
which an arbitral case was BMnetimea
taken under advisement for months
after Use bearings before the verdict
was rendered. Only the other day a
highly satisfactory determination was
reached in short order of ii case which
had been matter of contention for
nearly a century and which was pecul
iarly complicated and controversial.
Following that the court look up another '
vexatious dispute, tin's tune between ■
Venezuela and the United States, and
now the verdict is made public. The \
whole period of the adjudication has J
been shorter than has been occupied here
in obtaining ■ jury hi a murder trial, to
say nothing of the trial itself.
The award which Its made by the court
in Ibis case is much less than the
amount which was originally claimed by
the American plaintiffs. Also, it is a
great deal more than the sum named by
an umpire iii ■ former personal arbitra
tion, which the United States declined to
accept The presumption is that it is a
just award, or an nearly just as a com
pany of intelligent and impartial jurists
could make, in such ■ ease, involving
the repudiation of a contract and the
suffering of both actual and speculative
losses, it is not easy to determine with
convincing accuracy precisely what sum
tbould be granted to the plaintiffs. But
this verdict will probably he accepted
without hesitation by both parties.
The case i- noteworthy for a reason
already suggested, namely, that a
former determination of it was rejected
•by (his country <»n .the ptMand of its
manifest violation of the principles of
international law. The fact that it was
accepted by the court at The Hague for
readjudieiition without criticism of that
action may be regarded as ■ vindication
of the course of the United States. Ob
viously it would be most unfortunate to
have such judgments commonly or fre
quently, repudiated, and happily theM is
very seldom any valid ground for that.
It is gratifying to km.*' that the
raited States [cannot be charged with
error in taking that extraordinary
course. It is also gratifying to have a
controversy between this country and a
country- which is much weaker and
which has at times affected fear of
American oppression disposed of In a
way which marks the strong and the
weak as equals before the law, and
which will doubtless serve to dispel
whatever suspicions or animosities some
Venezuelans may have felt toward the
United States.
It is a source of regret to observe that
my opponent has seen fit to make this
largely a "campaign of personalities in
stead of a temperate and reasoned dis
cussion of the issues before the people.
—Mr. Dixs Buffalo speech.
"Huppuchrisy"! -. Who pitched the
campaign on I personal note? Before
Mr. Stimson took the stump aud before
Colonel Roosevelt began to speak Mr.
Dix had called a farmer president of
the United States an "apostle of discord
and dissension" and "an agent of de
struction." and "a public enemy"!
And true to this beginning this dep
recator of personalities devotes four
lifihs of his Buffalo speech to pesaanal
abuse! Kven Judge Parker's fantastic
statements about Mr. Stimson's fees
serve the purpose of Mr. Kix. Judge
Parker appears to have been ashamed
to repeat his charges after they were
promptly met by the Republican candi
date. Not so Mr. Dix. 3ln his desperate
desire to escape the necessity of break
ing the silence regarding the rea 1 issues
of the campaign imposed by Murphy be
tries to create the impression that the
great and genuine public service per
formed by the prosecutor of the Sugar
Trust was .1 mere piece of fee grabbing;
and be does bo In face of the facts clear
ly known to him and to every one else.
Mr. l»ix's desire to conduct the cam
paign on a high plane is equalled only
by his desire to see the tariff on wall
paper reduced.
SMOKE i\tf OIT, 7.V 77/ K STREETS.
From at least two major points of
view earnest commendation is to be
piven to the Health Commissioner's cam
paign apainst the automobile emoke
nuisance in <ity streets and also to the
movement to compel the operators of
y\u-h vehicles to stop spilling oD on
the pavement. Both these practices are
indisputably unpleasant and offensive,
and probably Injurious and dangerous,
and both are susceptible of abatement.
There can be no question of the right
and power of tlie Health and Police de
partments to deal with such matters.
and there Is urgent need that the power
shall now be exercised.
The occasional emission of smoke
from automobiles is probably unavoid
able and excusable. But for a oar to
run mile after mile with a dense trail
of acrid smoke pouring from it i> not
excusable. It Is not necessary, aud if
it were it would constitute a pretty
Btrong argument for excluding the car
from the highways altogether. The
smoke is certainly exceedingly unpleas
ant to the senses, and in many cases it
may be positively Injurious to the visual
and respiratory orpans of th<>s<> who are
exposed to It.
Tno spilling and stopping at ofl on
the streets, until they are saturated with
it and doited with puddles of it. is also
an inexcusable nuisance. It fills the
air with a bad smell, if makes the
streets dangerously slippery to walk
on. and it often Is a cause of soiling
and practically raining clothing Rnd
other articles. Now and then, as in the
< ,i<e of smoke, a little oil will of course
get spilled on tbe street But there
i> no reason for any such wholesale ef
fusion of it as is to be observed In this
city. Either a little more care or the
lirovision of drip pans t«> catch it Is all
thai is needed to abate the nuisance.
The other point ..f view from which
both these practices are to be regarded
is that of the selfish Interest «>f those
wh<> are guilty <'f them. It is a well
known fact thai a smoking motor Is a
motor which is being improperly used
and is therefore being Injured. The
ver\ conditions which cause the smoke
cause injury to the mechanism. Thus
the chauffeur who permits his car t<<
Kmoke is Injuring th<- car as well as
afflicting the public Of course, in tbe
other case, the oil which is poured on
the street is oil Masted, and that means
Increased expense of operating the <:ir.
]< the abatement of these nuisances
meant Increased expense to the owners
t.r drivers «'f cars, it should be In
sisted upon <"" r the welfare of the pub
lic. But since, on the contrary, it will
mean a decrease ««f their expenses and
therefore the promotion of their own
good, there can be do reasonable r(>sist
;<n<-.. or objection to it.
Attention was called in these columns
not l"u;r ago to the decision of the
United states circuit Court in Colorado
which forbade the spoiling of a lovely
piece of scenery for business purposes.
Through the courtesy of the American
Scenic and Historic Preservation s<»
ciety we have now received a copy of
tbe full decision and find it of even
greater import than the original news
dispatch indicated.
lv the Colorado case the canyon and
falls of a stream flowing from Pike's
Peak and tin- luxuriant arboreal and
Bora! growth promoted by the moisture
of the spray from the falls constitute
one of the chief charms of the adjacent
town, a commercial company posed
to take for its uses the stream above
the fulls, making the latter dry, and
transforming, consequently, the now
verdurcjjus canyon into an arid and
sterile, waste. The town brought suit
to prevent this and won. Three sepa
rate points were raised, which are
worthy of rehearsal. The lirst was that
the town bad riparian rights in the
stream which would be Infringed by the
proposed diversion of water. On that
the decision was against the town; on
the ground that the common law right.
in question had been expressly abro
gated by the constitution of Colorado.
The implication was, however, that
where such Bneciflc abrogation had not
been made the common law right was
valid. The second point involved the
question whether the purposed act of the
defendant company would constitute a
valid appropriation of the water under
Hie States law, and'this was nnsworod
iii Dm ■niiaallhll B« ft« as "'" two
points wi'nt. therefore, ' Hie decision was
against the lowa ami would have per
mitted the destruction of tbe fulls.
But the pith of the whole matter wjis
In the third point. "The town argued ,
that while the defendant company had
itnder the state constitution "the right
•'to divert the unappropriated waters of
"any natural stream to beneficial uses."
it could not divert the waters of this
stream because they had already been
appropriated to beneficial uses by the
town, and were therefore no I6hgejr '"im
nppropriated waters." The question was
whether the use of the stream to main
tain the falls, the verdure and the beau-,
tiful scenery was a '.'beneficial use" in
the intent of the constitution, and this,
happily, the court answered in the af
iirmative. It held that "beneficial use"
Mas not necessarily agricultural, indus
trial or commercial use. Said. the judder
Public health is a beneficial use. Rest
and recreation is a beneficial use. ana
for that purpose water is used to make
beautiful lawns, shady avenues, attrac
tive homes and public parks with lake
lets and streams and artificial scenic
beauty. Parks and playgrounds and
grass' are benefits and their uses bene
ficial although there is no profit derived
from them. The world delights in scenic
beauty, but must scenic beauty disap
pear because it has no appraised cash
value? It Is therefore held that the
maintenance of the vegetation . in Cas
cade Creek, by the flow and seepage and
mist and spray of the stream and its
falls as it passes through the canyon, is
a beneficial use of such waters within
the meaning of the constitution.
Accordingly, the waters of the stream
were adjudged to have been already
fully appropriated for beneficial uses,
and an injunction was issued against the
intended diversion of them for industrial
purposes. That enlightened view of the
subject is to be commended as a prece
dent wherever a spot of scenic beauty
is threatened with destruction for sordid
purposes. The United States Circuit
Court In Colorado has adjudged beauty
to be useful and lovely scenery to be
beneficial, and, therefore, to be en
titled to the full protection of the
law, the same as any other valuable as
set. In that, judgment there is cause for
lovers of the beautiful to "thank God
and take courage."

excused for printing it "Vive le rot."
If Secretary Meyer has been correctly
reported he favors a. reduction in the
number of naval stations maintained by
the government. Fy deferring a de
cision in this matter for nearly two years
he gives evidence of a desire to act with
out prejudice and only after a thorough
study of the questions involved. This
hns now been rendered possible by a
series of personal visits to the yards
themselves. In so many other ways has
Mr. Meyer sought to promote efficiency
and economy In his management of the
navy that the report of his purpose re
garding the less important stations has
an air of credibility. Moreover, where
local influences are not allowed to oh-
S4 lire the vision, the policy itself is likely
tr. meet with general approval.

John J. Fitzgerald, now running for
re-election as Representative in Con
gress from the 7th District of this state,
said in a speech Tuesday night to Bomoof
his constituents that he had never as
sisted in prolonging the life of "Cannon

If th' dismissal of the (Jr^ek National
Assembly and the ordering of elections
for a new one mean that Mr. Venezclos
lias begun to rule that kingdom with a
Btrong hand, there is rminci for gratifica
tion. In no land is a strong hand more
needed, especially in dealing with Mich ;i
body as the National Assembly. Our
dispatches the other day told that that
precious conclave persistently declined to
vote either confidence or lack of eonfl

question by breaking a quorum When
ever it < ..me up. Mr. VeneaeJos at first
thought of resigning, but th<» King
would not listen to that, and so he Wisely
and patriotically decided to remain and
fight the matter out. The new As

noted, with the same pleasure as [ did, the
general display of our national flag on the
occasion of the consecration of St. Pat
rick's Cathedral, permit me to call especial
attention to it. In the hope that church
members of all other denominations will
follow the example of the Catholic Church
in similar cases.
Mnrr particularly would T urK© this for
the reason that the congress* at The HajM
has quietly an«i unostentatiously proved to
the world that serious differences BltWlM
antagonistic countries can be amicably set
tled and the unspeakable horrors of war
averted. In the days to come Mr. Roose
velt will be fur more remembered for his
successful cfTorts in establishing good feel-
Ins between Russia and Japan than for his
costly and unnecessary parade of our naval
forces throughout the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans. Surely. America, one of the most
powerful nations In the world, can well
afford in the future to make our flag the
symbol of peace on earth and good will to
T-et us fervently hope that the dawn of a
new era Is at hand, when every one-not
only holy prelates and churchmen, but all
of us, laymen or otherwise— will unite in
banishing from the records of future his
tory that relic of barbarism, the adjustment
of international quarrels solely through the
medium of war, a custom which has en
tailed more misery, wretchedness and suf
fering than all the other evils we have
been unnecessarily forced to endure since
the birth of man.

Sir: I have just seen several of the re

issued by the Controller's office in this city.
They are dirty, and when two or three are
put together the carbon strips on the back
rub so that the names and amounts be
com*» blurred and almost illegible. Unless
these bills are handled with exceeding care
the smudge comes off on ones fingers.
The memorandum notices sent out in an
swer to a request for tax bills were of the
same general type us the receipted bill and
could scarcely be read. This work was con
tracted out to a private company. It would

There may he some saving in issuing tax
bills of this kind, but there is such a thing
as paying too much attention to'cheapness
and too little to the rights of the Individ
uals with whoa the city deals. A business
concern which would send its customers
such looking bills as these would be consid
ered so parsimonious as not to merit fur
ther patronage.
In another and important respect these
tax hills are a decided step backward. The
old bill* showed on the back the tax rates
and tho budget appropriations itemized by
departments. This information is omitted
from the present bills. o:li«>r localities are

of Mr. Stimson's f««s nnd general court*
of personal conduct with reference, to the

Judge Parker met Mr. Stimson. .s H y, at

take precisely the opposite position? And.
furthermore, as a man experieno-d in large

of Attorney General Wickersham. is it
possible that he could have or would have
offered anything less?
