Uli: t'H ART ER CAUCUS. .Mi. liarnos savs iruiy that it would tot hsid public poIh'T for the Legislature lo Inflict the proposed charter on New York City at this lime. In his capacity ?a Republican State Cbalrman he might with safety have gone further and isaiil it would he foolish and fatal partisan pnliticK M well for any Republican to at ay out of the caucus against this ( harter called by the Republican legis? lative leaders. The danger of a hlpflrti saii alliance engineered by Murphy of Taiuuiany to pass hi< charter has been apparent since that document was Urst prcsentt'd to the IaCgislature. The neces -ity for Murphy's getting Republican \-.tos for It is emphasized now hy the revolt against it of I'emocrats such as Senator Roosevelt and Democratic news? papers such as "The Albany Argus." It las been no secret that Tammany ?minted on four Republicans In the up? per house?Walters, of Onondaga; Ar uetsinger aud Ormrod, ?if Monroe, and Emerson, of Warren?and a, few Assern blym?'i). including Onondaga aud Kings ('?ounty members. How far Republican factional differences, how far certain ?onalderations recognized by legislators as Talld, such as "courtesy" on local legiKlation. were resrionsihle for this it la idle to speculate. At any rate, the Republican organization of Onondaga i.'ounty seemed not unwilling to bave Its legislators help Tammany plunder a Re? publican Controller of New York City ?d the power? the people elected him to ? ???reise, and the deputy leader of the ??rgaiilzation helped Tammany prepare Hi?' weapon. No protest came from the oiganlzation beads of Munrue Oounty when the report went around the state that Senator Argetsinger would vote with Tammany on the charter as he had on the continuation 0f Justice Cohalan. and carry ?Senator Ormrod with him. It is now apparent that such a course W(?uM offend the? people of Monroe and Onondaga cotmtie?. "The Rochester P'-mocrat and Chronicie," for instance, characterizes this charter as containing '??uough Jokers to condemn it in ad *'\nnee with anybody not completely "under the domination of the Tammany 'mW?M." "'ITie Rochester Post-Express" wtarned Senator Argi-tsinger that h<* "was not ohxted by the RepublicauK of "Monro" County lu vote in the Legis? lature as the Tammany Demo?rats vote, 'to take orders from Murphy or to be a "ictre automaton..Ihe Post-Stand? ard," the Republican organization paper I <?f Syracuse, j-olemnly warned Senator Argetvirjger that be was making a mis? take, though it neglected to mention Senator Walter?,. Onondaga County's representative. To hitu equally its warning word? appl*?: "There Is an easy "rule fop the upstate legislator who "wants to do his duty by New ^ork "City. He should rote the way that "Tammany doesn't." Tammany's charter is frankly a parti? san and a selfish scheme for the advan? tage of Tammany and its attendant special interests. The Republican caucus means that the responsible leaders of the party have determined now to light it on that basis as a party matter. In that position they are fortified by the fact that It Is bad legislation, being forced on nn unwilling public by a clique of politicians always under sus? picion by that public. The Republican 1 ho votes against it will serve his party by serving the public's interest. It seems unlikeiy, under the circumstances, that Senator Walters, Senator Arget singer. Senator Orrarod, Senator Emer? son or any other Republican legislator will be so foolhardy as to bolt this caucus against Murpliy's charter. MR. KIPUXO'S IXSVLT. Mr. Rudyard Kipling's popularity in Canada will hardly be enhanced by the crudely patronizing advice offered In bis letter on the reciprocity agreement. He has so little confidence in the virility and capacity of the people of Canada that he Insultingly suggests that the only way in which they can preserve their nationality is to forswear commercial relations with the friendly nation living to th?- smith of them. He intimates that "a little ready money" made in trade with this country under the more advantageous conditions offered l?y the re?-ipm-lty compact will so demoralize t'anuda that she will s?*on conform to the lamentable "commercial, legal, finan 'Vial, social and ethical standards which ' will l?e imposed upon her by the sheer "iidtniitod weight ??f the United Slates?." No 11.-ir*.her indictment of the peuple of the Ihiminion could well 1??' drawn by an envenomed critic, ami they will tag long-t-ufTorinc boyon?! measure if they do not resent the 1 ih??l on their national ?hnracter. The agreement made by the governments of Canaria and th?? United States Y\n\i?d. if carried loto effect, un ?loiibtorllv enlarge the trade relations between the two ?ountries and gfjesajr? ga*e a larger neighborly interest gfj each ?i?b- of the lrorder. Rut to say that the opening of I more profitable market to ta?ada would gn HIM wine to that coun? try's head and Induce it to abandon its well matured plans for national develop? ment /?nd surremler its political, moral tin?! social ideals, with which the United Stab's has n?. wish whatever to Inter? fere, is to attribute to the i'anadians an instability and debasement of which evidences exist only in Mr. Kipling's i ???rfervid and disordered imagination. Canada di?l not soil her soul when she signed the earlier reciprocity compact ;.'ith the T'nite?l States. Sh?- was not tempted by "a little ready money" ihen l lo Auieriianize herself, and the ?oustaiit \ l\ gpiwin? trade between the two ?'onn jtri?s in the last fifty years has not tmded in th? b-ast t?> any modification Of Canada's social and political tradi? tions. She has lived her own life and will continue to live it, reciprocity or no reciprocity. Mr. Kipling seems to think that the Dominion is an irresponsible minor, best k?>pt in leading strings, whose proper bringing up depends upon gas? never being ??Mowed to venture mi (haperoneil outside the imperial circle. If Canada is content to bo l? ?et tired to on that basis, we entirely mistake her buoy? ant self-contid?'Uce and robust pride of nationality. IMMORALITY ITE SOLE HEBET. A theatrical manager who without, particular squeiimishiioss 1ms exploited notorious women in past years lias de? cided that public opinion will not permit, him t?> capitalise the notoriety of a har? lot who figured in the latest sensational i rlminal trial. Consequently the theater? going public will not bg u .Dieted with this creature, whose sole asset for ex? hibition purposes is her shameful past. Doubtless the public will feel relief, ns similar instances of managerial enter? prise, from the forms of "dramatic art" devised for "badger" women to those in? tended to exhibit chorus girls who take potshots at aged men of wealth and amorous disposition, never lasted half as ions as the question why they ever should have existed. o What the stage has lost in this in? stance the moving picture shows prom? ise to gain?the moving picture shows, the resort of young boys and girls. On the stage this exploitation of filth and Indecency is an offence against the re? spectable and self-respecting workers of the theatrical world, which was fittingly resented in a recent case by official ac? tion of a vaudeville actors' organiza? tion. It is an offence against the public and an insult and injury to the pitiable creatures thus exploited for dirty money which warranted the action of Phila? delphia officials in prohibiting the ap? pearance of the woman there. In the moving picture shows it is a distinct menace, even though the films portray "moral and improving" scenes. This would seem lo be a case for Immediate rctlvlty on the part of the moving j ?let tire censors, for whose approval most of the film makers submit their products. Immorality is the sole asset of any stieh performance. "FORCING CAPITAL." Apropos of the Interborough Rapid Transit Company's refusal of the city's terms for the third-tracking and exten? sion of its elevat???d roads "The New York Journal of Commerce" reads the Public Service Commission a lecture upon the unwisdom of "trying to force capital." Now, iu the first place, the (?'nun which the company has just re? fasses, were not made primarily by the Public Service Commission, hut by Ott Hoard of Kstimate and Apportionment. They were those contained In the so ecImd McAneny report, which was ac? cepted by the Hoard of FaStimate and Apportionment. They may have b?vn unduly strict. The McAneny committee and the Hoard of Estimate and Appor? tionment did not exhibit such perfect cenfidence in the finality of their con? clusions after adopting them that any one else is bound to foe) that they could i.nt wisely lie altered. But, Mug the terms iix??d by the city authorities, the Public Si'i-vlce Commission could hardly do less than communicate them to the Interlioi'otigh Itapid Tran-lt lompoiiy But. is ihe mere rejectlou of the city s o? the public Service Commissions terms by that company e\ idence that the public authnritiet, ha?,?- foolishly tri??d to tttet capital into an unprofitable bargain? ihe only terms ubich the Interborough company has fignitJed a willingness to accept for tbese elevated extensions are practically RS favorable to It as those upon which tt holds the franchises for the present elevated structures. It Is willing to make only a nominal payment for practically per? petual franchises for what has been proved to be the most profitable form of rapid transit. This is not a case of capital taking chance??, capital has a ?certainty?the certainty of Immense re? turns. The Interborough compauy, however, has .a monopoly with respect to these pioposed facilities. No one else can operate extensions to or third tracks upon Its elevated lines. It fears no aompetltor, and Is determined to get for Itself every cent of the enormous gains that will come from the third tracks and extensions or to condemn the public to suffer from the present in dfcent overcrowding upon Its trains. It is not so much a question of the city's "trying to force capital" as of capital's trying to force the city. AS TO POSSIBILITIES. The fatally objectionable feature of the pending arbitration treaties, says Colonel Roosevelt, Is the clause provid? ing that the Joint High Commission, which may be ?composed exclusively of foreigners, may determine that any given question whatever may be arbi? trated. Yes, put in that way that ?seems pretty bad. But, then, what are we to say of the Constitution of the 1'nited States, which provides that the Senate of the T'nited States, which may be composed exclusively of naturalized ?itizens, shall have puwer to control through ratification or rejection all our treaties- with the very country of which they are natives; ami that the Coneress of Ihe 1'nited States, which may be com? posed exclusively of blind men, shall make all our law?-". Also, says Colonel Roosevelt, if a Pres? ident could not make up his mind about such ii -?Pal ?piestinn, and had to have II made up for him bf outsiders, pos? sibly foreipinTS. it would DS proof i""-1 tivn that he was not fit to hold the exalted position to which he had been elected. Precisely ; and if a President should appoint a lot of foreigners as the Amori?*an members of siHi ;i joint High Corumissiim it would he proof sufficient that he was In need of a commission ?/<' Uivntii-" iivjuircndo. It may he quit?? true that no sound artTutneiif- ran be made for permit tin? the Presiilent and Senate to delegate t?i foreigner?, the exercise of a fundamental and vital power. Neither can there b?' any sound argument f??r permitting the Senate of the T'nited Stales to he mm )vs(?il exclusively of deaf mutes or of naturallze?l l'olacks. an?l yet the <"ii stittition of the Tnife'l States <*ertai:ily ? doe?, permit that \ivy thing. There are lots of things in this world which are theoretically permissible and possible, yel which ha\e no more chance of being realized than we have of catching larks ODtler a f;illlng Of the skies. THE OUTLOOK IS MARYLAND. The Democratic State Convention in Maryland having confirmed Mr. Gor? man's title to the nomination for Gov? ernor, the eamjialtni this fall will turn t!|>r.'i the single issue of reviving or bury? ing deeper what has long been known in that ?-fate as Gornianisin. The order with which the former Senator was associated and which his soii is now seeking to re-establish may be summed up briefly as government of the poli? tician??, by the politicians aud for the politicians. Since that system was shaken off in ISiif? by the election of ?t Republican Governor and the amen?l irent of the vicious election laws, the I'? rnocralic party has been inore or l.?ss or its good behavior. It has regained power, but it has been cautious about using It oppressively, and its caution has been heightened by the two successive ?I? feats at the polls of constitutional amendments Intended t<? introduce an? cestry as | qualification for the suffrage and thus disfranchise necro citizens in defiance of the guarantees of the federal ("??iistJtutlon. It practk-ally abandoned that futile crusade when Governor Crothers vetoed the disfranohisemcnt legislation of 1910, and had it nomi? nated for Governor this year a jptOggtM sive Democrat of high character such as State Senator Lee its lease of power would probably have been easily con tiniH'd. Mr. Gorman has stood, however, in his career in state politics for reaction all along the line, including a return to the abuses of bosslsm. His alliances are with the professional politicians, the liquor Interests and th?? corporations seeking to control legislation In their own interest. He Is torn training and Instinct a broker in politics, convinced of the adequacy of machine methods to hold unorganized public sentiment In subjection. Every one who knows him ki'Ows what his models of statesmanship are and that he will try to perjietuate his power by giving greater play to th*? woi-st elements in the party In P,altimore City, now once more firmly organized under a leader bent aaj exploiting that city. The Republican candidate, Mr. Golds borough, is the antithesis of Mr. Gormin in most respects, and his election would be a helpful check to the forces of niis government. "The Baltimore Sun" will support Mr. Gorman, yet it said yesterday, with evident dejection: The outlook is for a hard fought cam? paign, In which the issue will be deter? mined by voters who look facts in the face and follow the dictates of reason. The, Democratic campaign should be ad ?Iressed to giving such voters the most solid reasons for belh-vlng that party siKcess means a continuation of good state government. Mr. Gorman's nomination has made such "solid reasons" Indispensable. It has also made them perfectly worthless on their face. MAIES BY AFROPLASE. To-day's experiment In England of carrying mails between London and Windsor by aeroplane will be interest? ing and novel, and will doubtless fulfil Ifrv purjiose of attracting much attention and inducing many persous to patronize lc for the sake of having letters carried for them In such a way. That It will n?ld materially to the sum of human knowledge or ??f human efficiency, or will establish a new and permanent system of transportation, b gravely to bC doubted. Thero can be M doubt of Ihe p?>?Miill Ify of ?-nrrying packages of b?tt?-rs on ?? atroplane, any more than of earr>lri? | box of biscuits or m spare ?'an of Ra:?? l?*ne. Aeri'i'lati's are quite capable uf cr.rrylug ?something Ui addition to their navigators. And, of course, there Is no question ahutit the posalbillty of fljlng 111 aeroplane from London to Windsor and back again. In favorable drcutn stanc??-i that can be done more rapidly than the trip can be made by other methods of conveyance. Bot that the whole mass of the malls could thus be carried every day with anything Uke the n-gulaiity and security of railroad or automobile tran-rportatlon will not, at least in the present Btage of airship development, be conceded or eren as? serted by any rational person. This novel performance Is to be under? taken for a special purpose, with no thought of its being a permanent ar? rangement. The government recognizes its uncertain and transitory nature by declining thus to transport registered mail or valuable letters and by dis? claiming In advance any responsibility for loss, damage or delay. Indeed, only postal cards prepared specially for the purpose, or letters in envelopes thus provided, will be received. It is not the beginning of a new system of service. It it merely a temporary spectacle, undertaken to commemorate the corona? tion and for the benefit of some public charity. Doubtless the letters and cards which are thus carried will be much prized as souvenirs. But that will be the limit of their significance and of the significance of the achievement. The Interborough Rapid Transit Com? pany has raised Its dividend rate, even though Mayor Gaynor said there were no dividends to be got out of a quarrel. s The Governor of Texas has vetoed a legislative apportionment made by the LegLslaturo on the ground that it was an outrageous gerrymander in the in? terest of the prohibition wing of the party. Having no Republican opposi? tion on which to impose, the legislators at Austin were reduced to the necessity of venting their passion for what Mr. Bryan calls "the embezzlement of power" upon one another. "The Troy Timea" reports thrilling de? tails of "Tho r>ix Social Campaign." Activities there are even more porten? tous than in the equally thrilling Diz direct nominations campaign.

ORIGIN OF THE BLACK HAND Spaaigh, Says Mr. Tranco.!**!?How to Get Bid of It. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: Having read for a number of daya past your editorial articles in connection with the Black Hand, ao called, I thought that a few more worda upon the subject would be helpful. The Black Hand Is of Spanish origin, and when thriving in Italy eeveral centurtea ago it waa absolutely suppressed. In this country It haa revived because of the fer? tile conditions here. The criminality of any nation?whether imported or native?can be exterminated If the system be applied that la effective In Europe. For inatance, In Italy the Commissioner of Police commands all police captains to locate every person in every house In his district; th? number of persons living In the building, their sex, their business, their addresses and whether these individuals are self-supporting, vagabonds, living by graft, blackmailing, etc.; all of which Is kept on record. A respectable man never objects to going on record as respectable. Having such a record, the police force know at once th? locality of many crimi? nals and are able to put their hands upon them at any time. Why blame the federal government, the I Its Man government or the Italian colony? t It Is the province of the city government to protect the right against tho wrong. Find the criminal, enforce the law sbso lutely whenever a crime is committed, no matter what the cost. We spend thousands In the endeavor to convict gentlemanly wrongdoer? like Thav and Morse. Would It not be better expended upon the real ? rlminal? Do tills, enforce our laws, and >ou will find the major part of the Ital? ians with Jim heart and soul. But until the people aro confident of the protection and stability of the law they of themselves can do nothing. I am proud to state that I have been an Italian-American citizen fov over twenry years, so know full well that the rank and I fllo of my countrymen arc for law and or? der, and that they stand ready to co I operate with authority if that authority I will but manifest Itself In effort and I strength. J. H. FRANKOLIN!. i New York, Sept. 7, 1011. OPPOSES JOINT RESOLUTION Writer Says Peace Treaties Alone Would Be Far Stronger. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: I read the communication of Harry Chase In your Issue of September 4 relating to the peace or arbitration treaties pending In the United States Senate. Evidently the writer is a man of peace and believes in their object. In fact no one has yet ap? peared to oppose them. No criticism that I have yet read is strong either in law or morals. The point made by the Senate committee is not statesmanlike. If Senator Lodgo were a bitter anti-admlnlstratlon Democrat or an anti-administration Repub l.oan his conduct could bo accounted for, but for him to give voice to any anti-ad? ministration sentiments Is aurely unac? countable. No one hta yet undertaken to prove that in law the voice of one administration or the action of one Congress controls any of Its: successors. Mr. Chase's suggestion of a Joint resolutton of both houses of Congress v.ould base ns more, in fact not so great, binding force fur tuture use than would favorable action on tho pending treaties. Roll, would have simply a moral force and ptcrarsf for use at a critical time should any such arise. While this Is true the fact TO* | trains that these treaties would ha\.? Far ?greater force and power for arbitration and I peace than a Joint resolution possibly could have. It docs not eppear that any nation or i government is disposed to make war upon the t'nite.l State??, but shouM any other I government of equal power assume such an attitude public sentiment w?>ul?l insist upon the administration using every other re? source as set forth in these treaties before accepting such B challenge. Does anybody doubt that in such an emergency these treaties are to be preferred to the pCUpoBtfl Joint resolution? To ask this question is to answer It. Mr. Chase will not take issue with this conclusion. One can well picture a belligerent splr rtcrl President wjio mignt be tempte.1 to give free vein to his spirit before Congress could act and so lr.volve us to-nso compro? mising an extent as to require us to humil? iate ourselves In order to oe free to act but f'u tho curbing effect of such a policy as Ik required by these treaties. A Joint reso? lution would contain no terms of procedure. Let us take no auch chances. The American people are not belligerent nor argresslve. We are even willing that fcrelgn governments should send warships and land soldtera In South America to col !.< t ?f.-bts due them from such governments, but they must not annex any territory. Every first class power abroad recognizes this principle as just to oursehes. But for I* we sometimes fear that Germany would be dlrposed to annex some land In South America. No asta seriously controverts the ! so-called Monroe Doctrine, which makes for I?eace in and for South America. Public sentiment does not as yet seriously rebel against the Iaige expenditures of money for the strongest battleships, as a means of national defence only, but It would para? lyze the arm of any administration which would use these monster* for any other purpose. A ?trong navy begets peace. If treaties containing Identical terms v.hlch President Taft seeks to havs adopted t> the Senate with Great Britain and Fiance were now in force betwen ?'.teat Britain. France, Germany, Russia, Italy .-.nd Spain the public could rest assured there would now be no African war cloud In the fky. The existence of auch B trenty, with such a rplrlt. could not fall t<? work out B peaceful solution of every conflicting interest. It would be B defensiv?? alllatn??? v. l.lcli would veto every aggressive force (.broad. An International treaty of like character latlween ?very strong government In Eu tope, Atla and America would tn tttt ho a world's peace pact which would mea n??t | rnly International paries but prosperity and Plenty.
