Mr. Beny^l. the Democratic candidate for Suite Engineer :ind Surveyor, ha* found tlie burden of Murphyisni too nsaeh t'.» <-«rry. and accordingly he has issued a statement denying that he is a Murphy tcaa and that lie will favor Taiumany contractors in the administra tion gf the states great public works. What Murpbyirai in die State Kngiueer ing Depart nien! meant sms shown in the r««cent Scene trial, where Skene's defence was iLat he was virtually ■ ligurrheai. that Tammany rau the of tic.. raised the hlda af <-ontractors and *v-ol]e<i«-d"' from those contractor*. The Ktate. thinking <>f the <-ost of Murphy. ha«] its ey*' v the State Engineer's Of fice, and the consequence is Mr. Rensel's rejm.liation. The Democratic candidate «-ould see plainly enough that the stats would never «'!e<t a Murphy figurehead State Engineer and Surveyor over the l>reseni unusually efficient i::ci:i.i!.ciit -t thnt office, Mr Williams, who hi a «-an didate for ie-ole<-tioll. I. vi If Dense! can repudiate Murphy why .anno! Dix? In Dix a Democrat )f a different strij*- from BenselY Has he Icsfc courage? Docs the Murphy gag completely stop his mouth? Even Hearst i-, !•.«*, said. "Murphy may be for me, but. I am not for Murphy. ' .If Dix lias not the backbone to go as far as Beaasi goes iv repudiating the Tammany hsas, vill he not go at least as far as Hearst West '! The past of Murphy will sat he con fined .-■ any " lJt ' branch af ihe state government, if tho^Deniocratlc ticket is elected. Bensel's declaration^ if lie should Lave the <*mr.iz? iv office to live % to it, would cut save ilv state* from the cost of Murphy. There will be Mur phy ■ the governorship. Murphy in the ! Controller's office, through his creature the racetrack Senator. Sohnier: llorplll , as Attorney General, by grace of Cnnie gfa Hall C;irmody; Murphy in the State IYaaaarer*s office, where Qrady 1 * friend j Kennedy, who is said to be an ex-salooiv- j keeper, will hold office, and I Murphy Legislature, with <;rady as leader of the Senate and the Allds Democrats holding all the "fat" committee places. Wltaj Murphy everywhere, except perhaps in [teasel's office, the cost of Murphy "ill !h> tremendous. And the cost will not be only in dollars. though the public knows Just what ■ Tammany administration costs in dollars. The chief cost of Mur- . phy will be the damage to the cause of good jjimiiißiriil that will come from Ihe acknowledgment that the prevalence of ii boss. like Murphy in a noittical party is a fact to be blinked by decent citi zens, and from the abandonment of the standard of public raid political morals which Governor Hughes set up in this, state. j I Hl.h'E HE BBUOVOBD. Mr. Ms is out of bis element running j,. r Governor of this stale. He ought to Ih- I candidate for the United Slates Senate, arhere, if elected, be would be welcomed artta open anus by the ardent tariff revisionists ( .f his own class and fatth. •The bcli.-ve in lower duties on all articles except those produced by them wlves or 1 1 1« -jt- constituents. Had Mr. Dtx been hi the Senate when the Payne tariff bOl w.-js under consideration he rasJl have acted in full communion with those DenMcratk* statesmen who go out <-n the hutting" and thunder in faVor of beer trade :\;\d s tariff for revenue only. bai who always cast their votes in Onn> for the liigncst possible duties on things in which they have a fireside in terest. As "Old llaiiuata TTaltun" he would have ranked with "Old Molasses," "Old Pineapples." "Old Sassafras," "Old Que bracho." "Old Rawhides" aud "Old Loblolly Tine" in the gallant company of Democrats who stood for downward revision and a lowering of the cost of living in the abstract, but who didn't want the cost of living lowered at their own expense or that of their communi ties. When Senator John \V. Daniel, of Virginia, was appealing for a higher tariff rate on quebracho, which is made to some extent In the Old Dominion, he was reminded that he was asking for a protective and not a revenue duly. ' I don't care what you call It," he re sponded. Tin for it." ben Senators Fletcher and Taliaferro, of Florida. pleaded for an advance In the duty on pineapples to a figure far above that of the Mngley law. some Republican Sen ators inquired whether the increase was being advocated on the ground that it would give more protection or furnish n -, re revenue, .-inn the two Senators re plied that They would be glad to see votes cast for their amendment from either or both motives. Senator Tillman urged a duty <m tea because 'here was a plantation in South Carolina which iranted to put an American tea upon the home market. Senator Smith, of Mary land, fought desperately against a higher duty on pineapples, because the Maryland canneries didn't want the price of pineapples raised, but strug gled with equal desperation against the lowering of the duties on lumber be cause V didn't think that the Southern lumber companies ought to be compelled j.i contribute to the cause of cheaper living by scaling down lumber price?. Tn that patriotic band Mr. Dix would have felt st home. Flourishing in one hand the letter which his partner, Mr. Huppuclt wrote to the Ways and Means Committee of the House of Representa tives requesting an increase In the duties on wallpaper, he could have said: "Call "it jher protection^ If you will; I'm for "it." while when ill'- Iron and steel, pot tery or glassware and other schedules were under consideration, he could have repeated the touching complaint of his acceptance speech against the excessive rsnd iniquitous rates of the Payne tariff lav an products not manufactured in j the vir-inity of Thomson. As "Old Liv ! -Walton" be could have gone down to fame with the other Democratic statesmen who by their votes at the extra session of V.* l4 .' vindicated General Hancock's historic remark that among Democrats the tariff is and always will he ".•« local issue." It is V. pity tint he didn't have a chance to shine in a situa tion which would have fitted him like the paper on the walL PREI'OSTFROVS. The preposterous character of the Dix campaign is fairly evident now. but when the election is over and everybody has calmed down it will be rightly regarded as perhaps the most freakish and fan tastic effort ever made by the Democratic party to float Itself Into power. Mr. Dix says that the destiny of the Repub lic is staked on his candidacy and that if lie is not elected Governor of New York our democratic form of government can not survive. No Democratic aspirant for offire has ever so magnified his own im portance or climbed to such a height i f ridiculous iself-esteeni as to announce thai unless the people turn to him as a deliverer "all the sacrifices made by the "founders of tke Republic and all the "blood Shed lor its preservation will have "been hi rain, and we shall see in the ••lime of profound peace a dangerous "disturber bringing show" the destruc tion of a free people against whom all "the forces of the world in arms migut "have been burled hi vain." Mr. Bryan's "elect me or you will ie "liver the country into the hands of the "money changers of Wall and Lombard "streets" pales before Mr. Dixs "elect "me or auerty will bleed its life away "In the gutter." There are some persons ■he cannot see the colossal impudence and absurdity of such an appeal to a puaple more attached to freedom and wore capable of employing freedom rationally than they have ever been be fore in their history. After (Section Day the indisjujusableness of Mr. Dix to our continuance as a republic will be seen of all men in ■ truer and more humorous light. THE REAL WARWICK. It if very charitable of Mayor Gaynor jo allow the idea to get abroad 'that 'ie suggested the idea of nominating John A. Dix lor Governor, and that he must therefore Up considered the real War wi'-k of the Rochester convention. The Mayor has had more than one cheering word for the Baas of Tammany Hall and has advised all go.«l citizens to • hike Mr. Murpuy*a acquaintance and discover boa genial and how full of dis. laterested public spirit he Is. It also un doubtedly suits the man who, according to the testimony af "The Times" and The Evening Past," held the Rochester convention -iv the noilowr of his hand" NEW-YORK DAILY TmmXR SATURDAY, OCTOBEB 20, 1010. to have the voters believe that he was merely executing Mayor Gaynor's wishes when he preferred Dix to Shepard. Ha vens and Osborue. Yet it must have l>een only a happy coincidence that the Mayor drew out of the hat the very same name which Mr. Murphy had al ready written at the top of the Demo cratic slate. We shudder to think of the consequences if Mr. Creehnan had had his wires tangled and presented an other son of destiny thau Mr. Dix as j Mr. Gaynor's first choice When a boss j holds ■ convention "iv the hollow of his j hand." the advice which convinces him is that which coincides with his own judgment. Fair-minded Democratic observers from outside the state do not hesitate 10 say thai Mr. Murphy is playing a part in this campaign such as no Tammany hogs has ever played before. A staff correspondent of "The Baltimore Sun" wrote to that newspaper the other day : There is a state chairman, a county chairman and various other officials at the respective Democratic headquarters, but Murphy is the man who is really running the campaign. The lines are in. his hand an.l he is guiding the Demo . ratio state chariot, and he is the first of the Tammany bosses who has so done. The correspondent adds that Tam many is reaching out for control of the stale because its hold on New York City has been shaken and there are not enough good things left here to go I around. "The Baltimore Sun's" in vestigator had not beard of the Creel ' man legend or had disregarded it. He j reported to his Maryland readers the rock bottom facts, which no legends can obscure, that the Democratic campaign here is Mr. Murphy's campaign, and that Tammany loOks on Mr. Dix'* election ns a first step toward its possession of the ! state. OPPOXEXTS OF THE "PUBLIC ENEMY" Mr. Olney, who fights the child labor law in this state, thinks that Colonel Roosevelt is a public enemy and a menace to the tranquillity of business. The counsel of Ryan and his various agents, once more dominating the Demo cratic party, agree that he is a public enemy. The crooked business men and corporations who were convicted of vio lating the law by Mr. Srimson. Presi dent Roosevelt's appointee as federal prosecutor, and their counsel are bent upon saving the state from further ac tivities of the same sort on the part of this public enemy. Newspapers which prate about their quickened faith in Democracy yet have so little belief in the capacity of the people for self-gov ernment that they fear the nation will be "Mexicanlzed" in two years are wav ing their petticoats in the air as a dan ger signal against this public enemy. The racetrack gamblers, no longer having Governor Hughes to hate and fear, have transferred their fear and hatred to his successor in the leadership of reform and progress in this stale. To them also he is a public enemy. Every one who is interested in trying to pre vent the "removal of the hand of privi lege from the public pocket** is bent upon protecting us all from the public enemy. And. finally, Charles F. Mur phy, ' who occupies ■ corner of the Augean stable of politics that has not vet been cleaned. Just as the rest of those who have been mentioned occupy corners of the Augean stable of business and finance that have not yet been fully purified— Boss Murphy of Tammany Hall, to whose kind of politic;? the suc cess of the colonel would be as inimical as it would be to crooked business— lets lose the bottled up voice of- Dix for a moment to denounce the public enemy. BUMAS LEVEB AT f750 APIECB. If the managers of the International Aviation Tournameni now open at Rei mont Park wish completely to vulgarize. :»nd to discredit among all thoughtful persons the entertainment which they offer to the public, they have only to give another exhibition of the contempt for human life which they are said to have shown on Thursday afternoon, ]t has been reported in the newspapers that at thai time, when tlie force of the prevailing gale was such as trebly to in crease ihe ordinary perils threatening a machine in the :iir. the management Of fered Latham, the French aviator. $750 for a tight That upon bis refusal an American, Brookins, volunteered to fl^ht the wind doubtless assured the crowds the excitemeni for which they had come, and marked him. in the pleating ver nacular, "a dead game sport."'

Purveyors of amusement would think twice before using the lure Of money to send an aviator into the Hir agaiust obviously dangerous conditions if In the event of his deatt they were held responsible t.» the law. RULES for ELECTION sight. With the Mayor's opposition to the graining of special all-night licenses for the Rale of liquors on election night many thoughtful people who are by no means of the killjoy type will hoartily sympathize. There seems to be no more reason for such grants on that night than on any other holiday night. On ttjs Contrary, there is somewhat ,less. For Election Day i* a holiday hot for revelry or merrymaking, but for the most %erious and momentous of civic functions, arid Is a time when order, so hripfy and tlmuchtfulness Should pre vail not only during the hours of : " tli:|l poiiinp. but also while tlio votes are being wmted and the restill is being made known. It Is not creditable to conclude tlie supreme function of self government with a carouse. With the Mayor's attitude toward election night bonfires in the streets, however, it is not so easy to agree, and many will prefer that of the Mayor's appointee, Mr. Cropsey. The Mayor re cently discouraged an appeal for the prohibition of such fire?, on the ground that "it has been the immemorial privi lege of the small boy to burn barrels "on election night, and we may have "some difficulty In stopping him." But custom should not sanction all abuse. The evils of the bonfire practice are so serious and so obvious as to call impera tively for its suppression. The effect upon the boys is bad. for it encourages them in law-breaking. A large part of their fuel Is stolen, some of it being of considerable value, and ike building of the fires Is a violation of lau-. Tolerance of such doings may en courage them to extend their predatory habits to other things than barrels and boxes, and to break other ordinances than that against bonfires. The practice is a nuisance and a peril to the public, making the use of the streets in some cases positively unsafe. As for its ef fect upon the* pavements, now largely constructed of asphalt or wood, it can not be other than disastrous. In these views of the case the Police Commis sioner is nearer right than the Mayor. The election night bonfire should be pro hibited. Wall Street think 3it is the whole state, and therefore makes the odds 2 to 1 on Dix. • Baltimore is all torn up over the ques tion whether or not a Democratic states man should wear a silk hat. the Hon. William fihepard Bryan. Attorney Gen eral under the last state administration, having called attention in the course of a legal argument to the fact that Gov ernor Crothers didn't wear a topper for merly, but wears one now. The question should be referred to a committee of two. consisting of Charles F. Murphy and J. Sergeant Cram. They knew all about the silk hat as the emblem of prosperous Democracy and the acme of statesman like form. What would the cartoonists do if Tammany should ever fall so low as t<> discard the aristocratic shiner? "Mack sees a landslide." says "The Evening Post." He evidently got the habit in the landslide campaigns of 1900. 1004 and 1908. The report that arrangements had been made for the construction of piers at Montauk Point, primarily for the ac commodation of the Olympic and the Titanic, having been authoritatively de nied, the question arises. Where will they dock when they begin running to Now York" As they are nearly sixty feet longer than the White Star piers in the 'Chelsea Improvement," they cannot be cared for there. If changed condi tions in the traffic on the Hudson should lead the War Department to withdraw its opposition to the extension of the piers into the river, a simple solution of the problem would be found. The Olym pic will not be completed for eight months, and there is ample time in which to make fresh representations to the authorities in Washington, though hardly enough for the new construction in case it fhould be sanctioned. A Chicago jury assessed damages to a golfer's wrist at only ?1.000. That jury never played golf. A resident of Fairbanks. Alaska, is so confident that "Tom 1 Lloyd reached the top of Mount McKinley last spring that he wants to bet half a million dollars that his fellow townsman can pilot an other party over the only route yet fol lowed with success. The proposal is open to more than one criticism because of its form. If it could be modified so as to involve only the necessary expense of another expedition something might be gained by acceptance. Many persons be sides geographers would be glad to learn from fully accredited witnesses whether or not the highest peak in North Amer ica has really been conquered. The birthplace of Daniel Webster is an historic relic worthy of preservation, and the formation of a society for the pro moti.m of that end is to be noted with approial. THE TALK OF THE DAT.' \pparentiy every new invention brings with It some evil.

HOWE Incidents Which Inspired Writing of "Battle Hymn of the Republic." To the Editor of The Tribune Sir: I learned of the death of that illus trious cosmopolite— and. no less. American- Julia Ward Howe, while passing through New York the other day, and read in The Tribune your interesting sketch of h*r life and your tribute to her manifold claims on our admiration and high respect. Having served during the Civil War as the assistant secretary of the Sanitary Commission, T should have liked to see in your facsimile of the original MS. of her wonderful "Battle Hymn of the Repblic" a reproduction not only of her calligraphy, but. as given in her volume of reminis cences, of the letter heading, viz.. the words. "1". S. Sanitary Commission, Wash ington, D. ('.." of the shct on which she wrote it "ln the dim gray light" of that morning following a day spent -like several others— ln "watching a review of the Army of the Potomac on the Virginia side of the river." At its close, as she tells u c . SB* and her party started the stirring strains of "John Brown's Body," Its refrain being caught up by the militant ma«s who had been manoeuvring and deploying before her. That inspiring death and war song was largely supplanted among the "boy 3at the front" by her own battle hymn in a year or two after she wrote It. but no one who ever heard cither Ming by a whole regiment marching toward the field can ever forget IU marvelous effect. On the occasion of which Mrs. Howe sometimes spoke to he* friends the refrain was doubtless sung by the soldiers with a vigor even greater than was their wont, for they had Just repulsed "a sudden" and tjuite unlooked for "attack of the enemy." Such were the incidents which inspired Mrs. Howe, a few hours later, to the pro duction of doubtless the finest lyrical out come—so far as surviving literature laom —of any war that ever was waged.

The advance In all values reaches money aa well. All low Interest bearing bon^is have been affected, as well as those bear ing a higher rate, but of less acknowledged security. I^abor demanded an increase, and received It. All products of the farm and the loom demanded more, and It was granted. The industrials, both great and small. Increased their output, and it therefore requires more capital to turn the Kales into money. The profits from these sources have, bSOS. largo, sad capital has helped muke them. Hence it asks a greater return for Its service. Therefore all securities of fixed turn must adjust values to th- changing condition*. OEORGB K. POMKKuY Toledo. Oct. .•-. 1010. AN EFFECTIVE CARTOON.
