While In Washington tin? other day Mr. Bryan talked with Senators ?La Follette ?iiuI Bomb and wltli various Democrats in both branches of <"<m gress about a plan o? his own ?for recon ?clllD-g differences as to Um form In which the constltiiiional amendment providing f??r the popular election of Senators ?.ti^-lit to go to the state legislatures.

The Incident reveals In the sharpest lighl tile New .Jersey Cover-; nor's anxiety to retcta the Presidency, j Ail along discerning persona bave aeen in his public posturing, his changes of conviction, his taking bp with new doc trines thai seemed to he popular and ills reversal of position with regard to Mr. Bryan nothing bul scheming ?" obtain tl'o nomination. Now in? Is shown ?i? villlog to wound an intimate. faithful and hitherto useful friend In order to remove a fancied obstacle lo the sun-ess ??f iii> ambition. Colonel Harvey was the discoverer of Governor Wilson politically. Before any one else liad thought of Mm other-! wise ttint? as a scholarly recluse at i Princeton tiie editor <>f "Harper's Weekly*" began to sound ills praxes and urge upon the D?mocratie party the Consideration "f hi? virtues as a pos? sible Democratic candidate. Colon ?1 Harvey caused Mm to i.*? "mentioned," though not very seriously, perhaps, for the Democratic Domination for the Presidency in 1908. This so far served to bring l>r. Wilson to public attention that by persisting in keeping his name on the ?tutorial pace of "Harp?'*--* Meekly" Colonel Harvey was able to make him the Democratic candidate for Governor of New Jersey two years later. Sime his election the editor's assiduity in his interest has been un? abated, hilt this Support has been thought embarrassing only since Gov? ernor Wilson began to court the favor of the West. Are friends as well as convictions to he discarded in an effort t.. reach th.- Presidency. HI BWAY NBGOT1AT10N8. Every day the prospects of the Inter? borougb'a contracting with tin? city for extensions of it?, system appear in a new light, one moment the city is ready with n proposition which differs as Tweedledum from Tweedledee from the I proposition rejected by the city hist summer. Tin- next the Interborougfa Company has undergone a wonderful change of heart and Is ready to make a I proposition that la almost benevolent. 1 The next day it Is all turned about. The , utmost despair preval?a The confort?es are as far apart as ever and nothing un? der the sun is likely to bring them to? gether. It all resembles what has been going on for years except as to the equanimity with which the public regard? the bar gaining. Once the community used to be elated at the news that an agreement was near and depressed when the pros pect faded from view. Now it reads the alternating newi with perfect tran? quillity. A subway sysiein Is building. Every one would lik?- to have the Inter borough Company operate the parts of if which might naturally be co-ordinated with its present system. Hut If the In* terborough Company will not come to reasonable term? there is another oper? ator in sight. In any ease a useful sys? tem of rapid transit is assured. That Is the reason for the public's composure. CiVIC PLANNING. Borough President IfcAneny'a advo? cacy of the Municipal Art Society's sug? gestion that a Chic Planning Commis ??on lie appointed with advisory powers respecting future city buildings and parks is well advised. The ?-?infusion that lias existed BO long as to a court - hous?> site has proved the need of such a Commission. When the question arose the city had no pulley. Even so elemen? tary a proposition as the preservation of the artistic effect of the city Hall had to be established by public debate. Tli?? problem was approached as If no considerations need govern the selection of the sit?- except tin* cost ?d' land and the convenience of rapid transit facili? ties, it was only by long discussion that the idea ?if grouping the city's buildings so as to intensify their effect as representative of the city's dignity ??ame to be accepted and the movement toward a civic centre was evolved. Without gome commission to work con? stantly toward this end the conclusions somewhat painfully r?-a?-hed In the re Cent debate are likely to lie forgotten, and when tiie city has to erect another great building the old habit of promts cuous scattering will resume its sway. A commission such as Mr. .McAneny urges would serve as a reminder that the ?lays ot haphazard were past Mi:I \i. ADJl KCT8 TO WAR. It should not escape attention that the present war between Italy and Turkey is the first in which Ciere has been an opportunity to make nSS of two of the most Interesting modern In? v??iitioiis. one of which has, been re? garded as likely t?> revolutionize mili? tary science. These are wireless teleg? raphy and airships. It might have been expected, ton. that tbey would In? largely employed in this war. seeing thai Italy has been one of the foremost nations in experimenting will), perfect? ing and putting them to practical use. No army in the world has taken up SViatloo as an adjunct more seriously and thoroughly thai that ?>f Italy, in the puivhase and building of dirigibles and aeroplanes, the establishment of hangars and Instruction grounds, and the practical training of men in aerial navigation. ' Yet we bave heard very little of the achievement? or the activities of the Department of Military Aeronautics. It I? known that two lanre dirigibles and a numerous fleet of aeroplanes were! some time ?go sent to the Italian head quartan in Tripoli, where they may be assumed to have arrived in safety. In <le?'d. word has come of frequent use of the nine u ??roui a lies which four expert Officers possess Hut it does not appear that any marked *N9Vka has been ren? dered, So night to any considerable dis. lance beyond the Italian lineH has been reported, nor la it known that au_.iu formation of advantage has been gained by that means. In fact, the pari played in the war by I his new Invention has been practlcaily negligible Neither have vve beard "f ?*?' ''''' portant use of wireless telegraphy '? this war. (hough lhe Italian army is abundantly equipped with apparatus of various types It would be interesting to know to what extent it 1? possible to use the syst??in without interferen?*e by the euemy, either In obstructing or purloining messages, in nom?? resp?>ets Tripoli seems to afford a particularly favorable field for wireles?; telegraphy, as also for aerial navigation, and It Is rather disappointing to have heard so little of their use and to have had so little light thrown upon their re.il utility in war. But perhaps the very lack of information or achievement Is significa nt. _ LEA R?1X(ir~G?R\f t Y. A ?able dispatch from Berlin M "The New York Times" has Just conveyed the somewhat astonishing Information that two lieutenants <>?' the United States navy are to be sent to Germany to b-arn the German language. The dispatch con? tinued : It )? the first time American navnl of? ficers have ever ne. n assigned to learn the laminage of .-? European country. Several in recent years have been sent to Japan for such a purpose. Germany must feel Battered by so dis? tinct au attention on the pari of the Navy Department, and the correspondent of "The Times" thoughtfully reports that the innovation "meets the Emperor's cordial approval.'' The neglected tongue of Goethe and Schiller Is looking up. It has been recognized by tiie American navy as one worth exploring -almost hs promising a held for mionighl oil ex cuisions as the Japanese Let us hope that the detail? to Berlin will be changed frequently, s?? that soni" acquaintance with the genius of the tier man tongue may presently percolate lulo the navy. It would certainly be of bene? fit lo our naval officers to know how to converse in their own language with the officers of the second largest navy and merchant marine In the world a marine which is constantly expanding and carry lug German commerce into every port on the globe. It Is of first Importance for an American naval officer to speak Spanish, since our navy's closest Intimacy Is with the Latin-American countries to the south of ii?. and In two of our ib-pendenci ?s Spanish is the common language. Hut German ought to come nexl even if tin whole naval personnel has t.? be trans ported in aqusds to serve an apprentice ship at Kiel or Hamburg or Inter deO Linden. V?t alas.' We thought that tbey taught the young idea to shoot In tier man on the banks of the Severn. It might be a good idea for Secretary Meyer to help alone the lrara-lt-ou-j.be spot experiment by enlarging tin? Navnl Academy's Teutonic staff or setting up a couple of dozen Herlitz school branches in the shadow of the Maryland Stat?? House. THAT H It IKE 7~t V f~M n<>\ Th" Inquiry of a correspondent con? cerning the can??' of th?- unusual brill? iancy ?>f the last full moon, which occurred <.n January i. calls attention t?i au lnter??stliig lunar phenomenon which might well have commande?! g?-ii eral public observation at the time an?' which will not again be seen for mam years if I? true, as our correspondent thought, that the moon on that date was especially luminous and brilliant, it was. in fact, the most luminous full moon that had b'-en obs? rv?*/l since that of December ir-'. 1808, and it win not be equalled again until December, 1929, or January. lli.TO; in whichever of those month? th?? full EDOOU m-arest the win? ter solstice shall ocnir. The muses of this phenomenon were several, relating to the position? of the sun. earth and moon. A: that lime the earth was nearest t.? th.- s m actual perlhHlon occurring only tw?jnfy rdx hours before full BOOB? and. of course, the moon was also nearest to the sun. and therefore received Its light most Strongly. Moreover, the moon was a' the point In lia orbit at which It was nearest the earth-actual perigee being only twelve minutes later than full moon and therefore reflected the solar light upon the earth most strong? ly. Again, th?? moon at the winter solstice Is very far north of the equator, which in the Northern Hemisphere causes It to approach our zenith and thus to shed Its rays almost perpendic? ularly upon the ?-arlh. giving them their greatest Illuminating power ?mil minimising the loss through atmos? pheric Influenc?e. This last ?rendition Is emphasized every eighteen reara by the position of the no?l<-s of I he moon's orbit, which in that period make a complete revolution: Which I? why the full moon of the winter solstice Is most brilliant at such Intervals It may be added that the??' condi? tions apply to the Northern Hemisphere and have nothing to correspond with them In the Southern, 8o that the full moon is more brilliant here than it is beyond the equator. It may be thai the poet's "summer Mes of Eden." if they lie south of the line, do see "larger constellations burning." but their "mel? low moons'' can scarcely be as lum'nous as at least one whl<-h glitters In our northern winters. DBMBNTIA TBXICANA. Dispatches from Fort Worth, Tex.. Indicate that What a flamboyant crimi? nal lawyer once ?-all???! dementia Au+tri cana has taken a new turn in that stat?*. Acording to the definition accept? ed by the rhetoricians of the ?-rlmlnal bar dementia Americana has hitherto consisted In the doing to death by an aggrieved husband of the Insidious home breaker who has ruined his happi? ness and brought disgrace upon his fam? ily name. In the South especially the idea was long popular that any breach of fidelity to a marriage contract laid upon the Injured head of the house an obligation to hunt down and destroy the party of the third part, and Southern Juries have very often listened with sympathy tj u Just!fleation of homh'ide tinder circumstances inimiti??! to affect the slayer's personal honor. But It Is pushing the claims of de? mentia Americana to a strange extreme when they are exacted to cover the case of a deserted husband who shoots to death the agexl father of the man with whom his wife had run away, the aged father slttlnir tramiuHly lu a hotel office In Fort Worth while the offending son was in tin- custody of the Canadian ; police In distant Winnipeg Hv what psychological pr?x*ess could the avenger have reached the conclusion that he was exacting a debt due himself as well as t.. society by killing I victim whose only connection with the cause of the demen? tia was his parental r??lallon to 'the other man"?
