grnecful tributo to the vitality In poli
tic* of lli-i* ancient inslitufi??n "Tbe
Fiivorlti* S??n." In f*iirli?*r days, when
there were fewer states anal state prkle
xx-.te more pronounced. M was a common
practice for the politician? of a common?
wealth t?> honor one of their number by
putting him forward as a Presidential
aspirant. Tb? reelpieul ol tbo compli?
ment was pleased, tin* state was adver?
tised and the favorito son'? managers
were often In a position to make an ad?
vantageous arrangement for the trau**
fer of his FBtB on I Inter ballot !<? some
more powerful candidate.
Mr. Kenyon cites tin* case of William
P. Allison, to whom Iowa's ?Monates
more than OB???? cave their voles in na?
tional conventions. B? was a somewhat
exceptional favorito son. for be enjoyed
a wide Influence In national affairs ami
was well equipped for tbe Presidential
office by long and intimate acquaintnn????**
with the machinery of legislation an?:
administration Hit* iindoobted nralla
bliity made ids candidacy something
nion? than a demonstration of local eon*
lidenee and affection, and it may be
that Mr. Kenyon meant to intimate In
his exr-eodinffly diplomatic statement
that Mr. Cummins poaaesMd qunlltiea
tions w-hieh lifted him, like Senator Al?
lison, above the rack Of local candidates.
Yet to support a rresi?|ential aspirant
chiefly becUUSfl he is "an lowan of
whom th?* state may well bo proud'' is
to put him back in the category in
which so many local <o]ohrities bat?
figureil for a time In the balloting In
national convent ion*-. Th? ????untn is
now s?? large ami so fur cured of thn
provincialism of former ?lavs that d?m?

taxicab companies, Th?. ?.*.?,.,.?.. belong to
tin? public, and if there is any revenue to
be ?lorived from their use as cabstand
it should co to the city. The r??vonii?*
which is <lcrlve?l from tlie-i stands is

to hope for a millennium of low rates.

The <*oinj)osition of the new German

Mr. KokOVteoff, the Prime Minister 0

to sonic of the flamboyant utterance

Inconsistent with It ha seems lO mimp

It is ii"t pertinent to complain tha
the president sough! abrogation of Hi'
treaty without Russia'"? bavins: given hin
just ground for such action, for the res
-??on that in fact do Specific ground Is
required though if it were, not Russti
bul the progress of events has fully sup

shall remain In force until a year gftei
"one of the high contracting partie
"shall have announced to the other, hi
"an official notification, Its Intention ?<
"arn-st i he operation thereof." Then
l-s no need of any statement of specif!?

on simple notification of the fact, with
?nit the least offence. That i? the cx
pHeit Intimation o? the treaty itself.
Tho President did n??t specify the
cause of abrogation which fhe Prime

simply stated the perfectly well recog?
nised fact that the treaty was an oM
one. thai it was no longer fully rospon
sive in various respe?'!" to the needs o|
the poutic.nl and material relations of

lii roting to require the Presiden! to
make public ?iii recommendations re?
ceived by him when considering Judicial
appointments the Democratic majority
in the House of Representative? again
demonstrated its wii.i goose chasing pr>
?livities. The Constitution gives to Ihe
president the poorer of appointment, and
when he sends fhe name of an appointee
to the Senate f..r confirmation he fullil-i
the function Intrusted lo him. There
I might be some color f?*?r h claim ou Ib-j

should have before it all th?-- Information
about a nominee possessed by the Presi?
dent. Put the Senate lias never success

dent to treat suggestions made to hita
about appointees as personal communi?
cations, t?. be withheld or shared IC
cording to his own Judgment.
The House <>f Representativos is n ?t
a part of the appointive power and Is
without authority to put limitations on
the constitutional use of that power. Il
caini'it order the President to make pnh
li?* his private correspondence an] more
than in? can order the Committee on
Committees of the House to publish all
the Suggestions made to It as to the e<>,n
position of committees, or the Hules
Committee to bare to view all the recom?

conduct of legislative business.
