During tbe last few days tbe people
of this city lmve sbown ln ? most
atriking way their interest in tba na?
tions modernlzed navy. The great fleet
of warships in the Hudson River has
?excited the pride and adnilration of
bundreds of thousands of New York*
ers. who have seen in its strength
a guarantee of protection to the lives
and property of all those who live
near enough to the water'? edge to
be aubject to the perll of foreign at?
tack. They have also seen Lu the great
war fleet as all patriotlc Amerlcans
must, the best avallable means of
aafeguardlng national interests away
from home and fulfllling the peculiar
?bllgatlons wbich the United States
bas assumed through the promulgation
of the Monroe Doctrine.
The country now has a flrst class
navy, the fleet assembled here being
more formidable than any other fleet
ever gathered together. wlth the ex?
ception of Great Britaiu's naval mus
ter off Spithead. Up to this tlme the
malntenance of the navy on a flrst
class basis has never been a subject
of politlcal dispute. Both the great
parties have assisted in building up
tbe naval establishment, and it wai
not until the Democratic organizatli-n
regalned control of the House of Rep?
resentatlves. ln 1911. after an exclusion
of eighteen years. that a programme
of halted construction was put for?
ward by the House leaders nnd made
biuding on all Democratic Representa?
tlves through tbe ageucy of the cau
,-!!,. it waa not due to the House
managers tbat the building of battle?
ships was Mt stopped. They wanted
no more constructed, and only after a
Mubboru resistance eompromised with
tbe Senate by reducing (he number of
new battleships to be authorized from
two to one
It ls only natural to assume that
what tbe Ii.'iiiocrats did when they
n-gained power in the House they
w-uld do if they should capture the
Senate and the Presidoncy. A Demo?
cratic candidate for President is in thu
field making all kinds of promises as
to tariff and trust legisiation. But so
far be has not venturod to say a word
about the navy. Probably he fears to
antagonize the Htmst: leaders. who
are willing to see tbe navy slip back
again to a second or third class ratins?.
The great display on the Hudson may
bave stirred thousands of Jersey men
to enthusiasm. But it has not moved
tbe Governor of New Jersey, who stlll
?witbholds any word of appreciatiun ot
the fleet and any pledge that. if he is
elected President, tho present efflclency
of the navy shall not be impaired with
his approval. For him yesterday's and
to-day's spectacles will have no meai?
lng. His mind is running on another
**aingle track."
But those to whom the insplring ex
bibltions on the Hudson do mean some?
thing may well hesitate to put into
full power at Washington a party
whose hostlllty to an adequate and
efflclent navy has been clearly maul
?fested through the action of a large
majorlty of its Representatives in the
?present House.
The dedicatory exercises of the new
Btate Educatlon Building at Albany,
which will be opened thls afternoon by
Chancellor Reld, bring together leaders
in the world of educatlon from all parts
of the country aud promlse to be of
great interest The ceremonies, which
last through Wednesday and Thurs?
day, mark the practical completlon of
an enterprlse whlch retiects great
credit on the state.
This building ls the first monumental
structure erected by a etate govern?
ment for the exclusive use of Its edu?
catlonal department, and its architect
ural beauty and dignity are a fitting
ayrubol of the lmportance attaehed by
tiie people of New York to the raulti
form dutiea whlch tbey have im**osed
on the Board of Regents, not only in
the admlnistratlou of the commou
achool system and ln the supervlsion
of bigber educatlon but in tbe niain
tenance of the State Library and Mu
aeum. The new building to sultably
placed and admirably ih'slgned wlth
relatlon to the domlnating Capltol, and
aeta a atandard for what will doubt less
ln time become a noteworthy group of
government bulldlngs on Capltol Hill.
Tbe original approprlatlon allowed an
expendlture of not more tban 53,500,000
on the edlflce, aud to the uatisfaction of
the taxpayers, and perha*>s to their sur
prise in view of thelr heartmiding ex?
perience wlth the Capltol, lt will be
comp'.eted without excecding tbe allow?
ance, owing to the care exercised by
the adminiatratlons of Governor Hlg
giua. under whom the purchase of the
alte waa Duthorized, and Governor
Hugh*a, under whom the contracta were
let and tbe work was begun.
Tha new atructure will relieve the
prwwure on tbe Capltol, releaning
needed qu* tera for many overcrowded
dapartroeata, and wlll make a flreproof
I home for tbo State Library. whlch un
I t'nrtunately comes tuo late to serve
{ fully its lntended purpose. The great
fire which two years ago dtvaatated
what was perhaps next to the I.ibrary
of OongltM the most valuahle eollec
i tlon in tlie I'nited States robbed the

What mlght have been a sbocklng
tragedy was bapplly escaped last nitrht
in Milwaukee by Mr. Roosevelt. Tba
whole world will rejoiee tbat the in?
jury he received from the attack of
one who ls evidently a lunatic was so
slight that he could proceed from hH
hotel to a meeting and deliver his cam?
paign speech without even allowlug
himself to be examined by a physician.
The persistence in making hls speivh
was charaetoristie of Mr. Roosevelt,
nnd probably wns lntended to show
tbat contempt for such attacks whii*h
is one of the best methods Of insurance
against them. as directed toward hlm
self or others.
The danger which he eneountered ls
one which fnces all public men. Cranks
with inspirational delusions and cranks

numerous, nnd it is impossible to

in this out of the ordinnry; tlie generai

Nothlng but l thoroughly disordered
or notoriety seek ing brain could bave
found in tbe discussiona the least in

philosophical remark tbat tbe dancer
of assassination was one of the risks
of his trade applles to nll in hlgh sta?
tlon. and Mr. Roosevelt and the coun?
try are most fortunate that this out
break of lunacy bad no more s4-rlous

No more accurate nnd pertinent com?

We are not sure, lndeed, thnt such i re?

nearly so great an extent as that. which

Public to Become Their Benefactors.
To the Edltor of The Trlbune.
Slr: We hasten to The Trlhune for jus?
tice. as plebelans would naturally do, and
tha Justice whlch we ask for ls a con
tinuance of the noble help whlch we hav*
always received, belng mirsea sf the can
cerous poor, and greatly appr.clatlng tho
lovlng justice whlch The Tribune has
berstofors accorded to us, from the hearta
of the inultltude of g.-nerous cltlzens who
plty our cancer homes. The Servants of
Rsttsf for Incurable Cancer have had
nothing to complain of on behalf of thelr
chosen work. Bttl tho cancerous poor. of
whom they nursc not a few, are an ever
rseunrlng element ln clvlc life. demandlng
renewed efforts and support. As they are
hldden and unheard of in their pecullar
mlsery, the nurses must call and halloo
for necessary means of ald, whlle relay
after relay of wounded are sent back
from the front of actlve Ilfe to the ob
.. < urity of a charlty home. In the case
of most dlsasters the publlc's fervent as
slstance comes too late. Cancer vlctlma
give tlms.
During the last year n great new home
has been errcted for our charges, wlth
money donated by thousands of benefac?
tors. It raSBB-SS our Uttle St. Rose's
PTSS Hom-. Bl No dl Cherry street. and
Is but u few atspa away from lt. Those
steps. however, make all the dlfference.
The new house Is on the corner of Jack
.?on nnd Front streets, Corlears Park, near
ths K."st River. The site ls one that was.
ons hundred years ago, selected by
wealthy Domlnlc Lynch as the best prop?
erty for a house In all New York. Ths
sunshlne and the breezes are as fresh na
ever there, and the -hlpping is also as
actlv. as ln 1812. The home wlll aceom
niodats one hundred men and women who
are ln the last stages of cancer.
To hastsn the building of this ediflce
John D. Crlmmlns became treasurer of
a fund-ralslng enterprlse, whlch netted
".I.OfX) r.f bencvolent money. The nurses
prlvately accumulated IMM more. Noth?
ing, however, could avert B mortgage. and
a sutn of *_\000 was gi ?nt? d in thls way.
Itut tho maln contract stlpuated for $91,
000. and the sub-contracts were by no
means puny. The liouse ts tive storles
hlgh, Brspreof and shinlng ln an armor of
wlndows. It ls fitt?*d wlth all reaaon?
able new devlces for Intelllgent work. It
si-r-med to the nurses and thelr advlsers
that It would be OflWlSS to bulld a fraglle,
tejnporary affair. nnd thls was avoided;
and so tho caii'.rous poor wlll have a
BBVaa of rest for a very long tlme. The
new Ht. Ros-'s Free Home, at No. 71
Jackson street, wlll be opened for lnspec?
tion and will be blessed hy Hls Fmltienc.
Cardlnal Farley on a day to be chosen
by hls emlnence, either late in November
or very early ln December. The public
may then examlne every floor of thelr
great glft to tl.ts class of IhS poor. The
date wlll to fully aaBOUBCaol hy adver
