But not one of these criteria denotes the presetil tr.i'.i!ii».»h in Mexico to be a revolution. There has beep no act nt" government, <.»r of rival jfrrtvisional p>v *mnseat. to that effect. Not a sinzle. f-u:t« i coyeniiue'jt has declared against tht federal authority. la not a tiuzlv state has a new government been organ- j | ized. There has l>een no indication of ! anything resembling a general uprising of the people. There have been raids across the barter by criminal or other refugees, who have not scrupled to abuse i the privileges of American asylum, and I there have been more or legs extensive riots, which seemed to have looting and i jail deliveries as their chief objects. But such things do not constitute revo lution, and they are not to be treated t. such. The United States, from tradi tion and on principle, recognizes the right of revolution, nnd more than once it has frankly sympathized with such a movement. But it can assume no such favorable attitude toward that which seems to be nothing more than a crimi sally inspired ruction directed against th«» peace and order of ■ great neighbor nation whose proirressive. enlightened and conspicuously friendly government is commended ■■• our conndence end sympathetic regard THE PUBLIC AXD THE TKTER BOKOUGH. Mayor Gaynor in his letter to Mr. Town<\ of the Merchants' Association, \ did nor reduce the opposition to the In terborourrh oaaapaay to a <"onipleT» ab " tsurdny when he wrote. Some again are so prejudiced against the present subway company on account of the crowded condition of their cars j that they scorn any proposition of that j company for the building 1 of additional Subways to relievo the conpestion. This sounds" odd, but it is wofully true. ; The Mayor's - v - words concerning j the Internorough company recur to i - j mind: ; And the most incredible thing In all j ! this business [the exploitation of the j i public by the traction companies] i? that the subway road, wholly built with j I the city's money, is in this combination, j and Its vast earnings are >--e:nc declared j out in dividends on capital which repre sents nothing but a means of perpetually j extorting money from the pockets of j : the many. And again Mr. <;aynor said: "Our j "railroads in Manhattan and -.-;-■• i j "believe, that the people are nothing but j j -'beasts, who care only to eat and sleep j | -while others rob nd plunder them." The people remember perfectly well i tbe .'ittitude of the Interborough Rapid j Tnuisit Company throughout the enjoy- 1 iuent i if its present monopoly, and are j I not ready to believe that if it is : ! strenirtLened in its crip upon the trae- i | ti<m situation it will behave any differ- 1 \ ently in the future. When The devil ! | was sick the devil a monk would be. I When the Interborough faces the dan- ; i ger of competition it is full of fair word* aid favorable offers. But let the luter-J i borough have its extensions constructed j • with city money, bo that the city will j 'have no funds available to foster com- j i petition, and will not the history of the- j i isext few years be a mere repetition of- j | those which moved the Mayor, when a ! candidate for office, to express his in- It'ignntion against the Interborough in I burning words? Not merely luis ihe Interborough. en- j i joying an immensely profitable contract Uvith the city— one which the Mayor has j ■ Kiid "must never be repeated"— failed to supply the extensions that the city's ' I growing traffic made necessary, but it ! has carried its obstructive policy down to details, resisting every plan that; [ttouW have relieved the present over orowdinc.

Yet the I i only reason why there -were not last ; year :iud are not now both side doors land longer platforms was The Interb^r ousrb Rapid Transit Company's Ion:: con ; tinued .--••■ to these measures of ! relief.

Shortly before election some one (kindly sent Th** Tribune a sample ballot ! from Oregon. The Tribune has just re- I covered its breath. It was not ilv size Jof the ballot that took our breath away. '. We are used T<> larcre ballots in this j i state, and we have read about one seven j j iWt square, which was used in The last j j North <>r South Dafcota election, though 'the mercy of a beneficent Providence 'saved us from a view of that monster. I JTh" Oregon ballot, being "official ballot | "fur Precinct Xo. ~ ( >. Multnomah "<"ounty. Oreeon. November S, WHO." ] was only two feet long by :i foot and a ! half wide, but the voter who did his full [duty by it was compelled i A make no j fewer Thau seventy-seven crosses ou it! j Forty-four of these crosses were for ! officers t«i be elected, thirty-three of i them were "ye>" or "n<»" on proposi tions of popular legislation to be voted I upon. With regard to officials, Oregon 'has The Australian bailor, grouping the candidates alphabetically under The I offices to be tilled, with the name of his party printed after thp name of the ean j didate. and the voter is required •■■ vote i for each candidate separately. There jare no short cuts to self-government in ' Oregon. These, with a local option question for j Precinct No. 7t>. occupy the upper rwo- I thirds of tho ballot. The lower third is closely printed with fine print, liner ; than you will find anywhere In The Tribune, except in the market reports, set ""solid." and enunciates briefly the ! rty-two propositions before the prate, either "initiated" or "referred." with j fpac** below each for voting "yes" or j "no." They begin with tbe woman's I suffrage amendment offered to the pa tient voters for the third or fourib time vi six and end with an amend ment to the state constitution reform- j in;: judicial proceedings. Kesides these j two. nine other <tins.iitutional amend- i merits are offered to the voters for con sideration, together with a proposal for • the election of delegates to a coiistftu- ItionaJ cbnrention to revise the state on is'.itution next year. Popular govern | itieiit is evidently in ■ condition of flux ?!i Oregon. There are three or four bills [providing fur cutting new counties uut M-.V-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. FRIDAY. XOVDIRer^ 1910- of existing counties, and three or four more providing for additional state nor mal school?- Besides, there is a variety of more or less local legislation, such as -sin act prohibiting: the taking of fish ••from tin- waters of Bogae River or any "of its tributaries by any means except ••with book and tine, commonly called ".-•uirlini:." Clearly th* Oregon voter had bis work cur out "for him, bat he had "crammed up" for it on a couple of encyclopaedic tesrtbooks Issued by the state regarding tbe candidates and the proposed laws and constitutional amendments. On the whole we cannot escape the conclusion that he passed his examination in - '<' t citizenship and deserves a degree summa cum laudc. Of the thirty-two propo sitions twenty-four were slaughtered. The constitution was amended only in three particulars, with respect to the technicalities of judicial procedure and the terms of certain judges and wilii re spect to a provision for good roads and one for home rule In excise matters. A ■branch sane asylum was authorized and one new normal school. An em ployers' liability law was passed. No more fish shall be taken from Rogue River except with hook and line. And a law was enacted extending the direct primary *» candidates for President and Yice-President. and otherwise increas ing its scope and providing for the pay ment by the state of the travellißg ex penses, not to exceed $200. of delegates to national party conventions- About three-quarters of the electors voted upon the propositions submitted. .Senator Jonathan Bourne says: "Ore ••^jn has evolved the best system of ••popular government in the world to day." It certainly has the most indus trious self-JTovernors that ever were. W«* note, however, the defeat in the re cent election of nn amendment "increas "ing the initiative, referendum and re '•call power? of the people." Evidently Oregon has enough. SUFFRAGETTES AID THE LAW. The felonious assaults upon two British Cabinet ministers committed by the female propagandists of woman suf frajre in London will probably compel the authorities of that city and indeed of the whole kingdom to consider more seriously than heretofore the Question of the extent to which lawbreakers :n petticoats are to enjoy immunity for acts which if committed by lawbreakers in trousers would be followed by swift and unsparing punishment. Hitherto the suffragette campaign iia< been re pirde* tolerantly, and even humorously. By chaining themselves to the grill of the gallery at Westminster the women did no real harm and caused some actual amusement, and the same may be said of their somewhat vociferous in terraptions of political speakers. The smashing of windows and other de struction of property was more serious, though even that did not reach tbe pro portions of capita! crime. In murder ous a'ssanlts upon the chiefs of ?r'V ! ernment, however, the campaign for ! -votes for women" assumes :*n aspect | which demands the most serious at j tent ion. f Everybody knows what would hap ! pen if meu should do what women did liv London on Tuesdriy. Their violent efforts would be forcibly repressed, if necessary vvith the truncheons of the ! police or even, as Gladstone ordered in Ireland, with buckshot; and that action would be approved by right-thinking •citizens. If unhappily murder was committed, the penalty raid be paid on the pillows. It would seem to many persons shocking to employ these method? toward vote-seeking women. many of whom wo are assured are women of refinement and culture and semleness of bean. Yet a statesman may be kicked nrvi trampled to death by :) mob of "gentle dames" ns purely as by a mob of male ruffians. V\"e all know how impartial in its severity the law is in other cases. Women have been sent to the gallows in England and ir> America for ordinary murder?, if the assault on Mr. Birrell had resulted in his death, which it potentially in volved, would it have been passed over as merely "pretty Fanny's way"? The quesTinn of woman suffraze is not involved in this. It is the question of '.Jiw aud order, and also of that very equality .before Hie rw for which the puffragettes profess to be plamoring. Entire equality does not now exist". Women undoubtedly suffer what they regard :>s :i disadvantage in the elec toral law! They jus.t as .... joy marked advantages * n otner im ~ portant Inws. particularly those relat ing to property. They are denied certain privileges, bnt They are invested v.itli others and with various important immunities.

Quite the contrary, i Elsewhere this month we came uj>on the j question of an educator, "Does It Pay Any Longer to Save Money?"

Now that he has paved that amount be finds that, at present prices, the cost of the .«ame lot and of building the same dwelling has risen to $8,000, or, as he puts it from the point of view of his purpose, that bis Sv>.i.kk> has practically dwindled to $3,000. The financial logic is a little confused, but we apprehend the questioner's meaning. The magazine does not answer his plaint, which has really nothing to do with saving us saving, und neither will we j nn "How to But a plain dissertation °» . .

An English weekly complains that a pur chaser of either of the two reviews s cheated out of the content of the article in the other one. It is a delicate ques tion, as delicate as "Is » Proper for a Critic to Write More Than One Review of the Same Book?" Still, we are in clined to believe that ■ dissertation on "How to- Secure More Than One Order for a Paper on the Same Subject" would be of far more interest to the average literary worker. .

The people are naturally "wary of the Interborouph bearing relief. If the Democratic party es»-apes the curse of Grady's leadership in the Senate it will n^t.be through merit, but through luck. Thp Mayor's advice to tenement house inspectors always to be polite may well be given to all public functionaries, but perhaps is most to be emphasized to those who have dealings with the poor. Nobody Is more entitled to the costless courtesies of official Intercourse than those who otherwise enjoy few of the amenities of life. The fellow who committed bigamy, ac cording to his own story, to save a young woman's reputation should have ejeer cised that chivalrous solicitude long be fore. In committing a second offence to screen the consequences of the first ne won no title to clemency. In the refusal of his appeal for a new trial "Abe" Ruef. the San Francisco cor ruptionist. had less cause for thanks giving than his fellow townsmen had.

To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: The term "state-wide direct nomi nations," QMi in the Democratic plat form adopted at Rochester, is interpreted not so much as an acceptance of the direct nominations method of choosinc party candidates and committees as it is an attack upon the present system of reg istration, by which, under the constitution, personal appearance is required previous to each election in cities and towns of ever 5,818 population, and not required » smaller places. The Democratic leaders at Rochester. In effect, served notice upon their Re publican rivals that in being compelled to submit to the popular demand for a direct nominations laws its acceptance must be contingent upon a uniform state registration law which shall hamper, an noy and reduce the Republican vote In the rural pections; even as now, the vote of the Democratic majority, as well as of the Republican minority, is reduced In the metropolis. It is regrettable that the grave ques tions now pending with reference to reg istration, direct primaries, forms of ballot and a fair expression of the will of the people, should be considered and handled from the standpoint of partisan advantage. And yet the Democracy, having been in trusted with full legislative discretion, will unquestionably use the power thus con ferred against their opponents not only In the redistrictlnp of the state nut also as to direct primary and registration laws. One wholesome result, however, will be the necessity of sharply denned and op posing policies by both parties- On the issues as drawn no bipartisan deal seems possible. The Democratic majority can not evade the promulgation of a definite programme. No advocate of real caucus reform regards as sincere the Democratic Platform declaration for direct nomina tions. It was bait unwillingly tossed overboard to hold or catch votes, with little or no expectation that the sea would ever be asked to give up its dead. On the other hand, the Republican declara tion left much to be desired. The manoeuvring of both parties at the next session will be Interesting. The reactionary element of the Democracy will doubtless be in control of the interpreta tion of the Democratic platform, and the tendency of the Republican opposition will probably be directed by those who favor genuine direct nominations. Herein lies the Republican opportunity not merely to oppose the inevitable Demo cratic gerrymander under the new appor tionment- but also to unite against un necessary and restrictive modifications of the registration laws, as well as against a weak and insincere direct primary law. ROBERT D. M'KAT. The Bronx. November --■ *°'' AS TO PERSONAL REGISTRATION. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: Permit me to disagree wit* yov.r con clusion expressed in a recent editorial arti cle that "a state-wide personal registration law" would work injustice to the farmer, but. while disagreeing with that conclusion, I most heartily a^ree with the conclusion that Governor-elect Dix will have hard sledding m getting such a bill through the legislature. despite the Democratic plat form pronouncement in favor of such a measure Although I am an enrolled Republican and of the benishted sort, who could see no menace either to the country or to President Taft'a renomination in 1912 by voting the Republican ticket entire on No vember 8, still I sincerely hope that Sir. Dix will succeed in putting such a law on the books this winter: and, further, I think it would be good party policy for the Re publican legislators from the cities, at least from this city, to supply an--' needed as- Fi?tance. I think that a state-wide personal regis tration law would be a law to raise the standards of political morality that it would be a moral advance in fact, and that, as such, it Is entitled to progressive Republican support. MORALITY AND EFFICIENCY/. New York. Nov. 22, 1910. AN ANTI-STRIKE SUGGESTION. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: I noticed on your editorial page re cently a letter headed "The Necessity of Strikes'" in which the writer, M. H. Tracy. sets forth that strikes might be avoided by the employer "selecting a person who by nature, experience and study should be abl« to establish a policy with the employes of his company that would under almost any circumstances avoid such an ex pensive and useless strike as has occurred." The writer has ha some experience in The employment of labor, and believes that the best method of forcing an employe to live up to his contract la to make htm fur nish a bond. A simple form of contract could be drawn giving the employer the option to discharge an employe by giving reasonable notice, and the employe on his part agreeing to give a certain required notice before leaving the employer and furnishing a bond to live up to his contract. As these contracts would not all be dated the same day it would be impossible to de clare a strike that would call out all of the employes at a certain time without most of them being forced to make good any losses sustained by reason of their failure to keep the contract. By reason of thereby avoiding strikes the employes could afford to pay more wages than they now pay, since they would not sustain tho losses incurred by strikes, and, therefore, such an arrange ment would result in substantial advan tages to both parties.
