If the Citizens' Committee Is Looking
for the Weakest Candidate It
Will Choose Mr. Mitchel.
if tin- fusion manager? ?ire taking Mr. John E*urroy
M.ltcbel'a candidacy Mrtooslj they are being misled
i>y the claims of pol?tica] organisations which exist
in name only. With the support of thee? hollow
Sheila of parties, Mr. Mitchel is still the weakest of
ending three candidates l'or the mayoralty.
11.s record opon SUbways makes him weak. He
Izes this blmeelf. in his statement yesterday be
fell 1 t" gSSTjre the public that if lie were
elected Mayor he would not do anything to block
the carrying <>ut of the dual subway plans. The
people have to t?e told that bis election would nol
mean a. return to rapid transit ??'.!
Bui thai ?iiiisiii B will not be enough. The peo
pi? will remember the titter impracticability of Mr.
i past attitude. They will Judge Mr. ?Mitch?
el's Atuses by his failure to take a sensible view of
the Subway problem. If he had had his way th?'
dual plan would have beeu defeated. The city
would be building h much Btnaller system than it
has been able to undertake umler the wise plan
patiently worked out by Mr. WIUcos and Mr. Mc
AUSSry, Many neighborhoods which ?re n?>w as?
sured Of rapid transit would have beeu compelled
to go without It. In place of the extensive Blngie
fare which will result from the construction of the
dual system, the double fare would have prevailed
generally. For example, the people of Brooklyn
would be compelled t?> pay two fare? t?> reacb the
traffic centre? of Manhattan under Mr. lUtcbel'a
plan.
The CSthsBOS' Committee should consider very
carefully these sources of weakness In Mr Ifltcbel
before making hira its candidate. Indeed, bifl prom?
ise not to disturb the subway plans that bare been
adopted leaves him 1n a dubious light He used the
most violent language In denouncing these plans.
Yet If be ll made Mayor ho pledges himself to ?I'?
ll?.tl.Ins to undo the betrayal of the city and to pro
ted it from being completely despoiled!
And Mr. Mitchel, if nominated, is likely to have
iht up against him his proposed arrangement
with t! ? N.vv Tort ?'entrai Railroad f>>r removing
enth avenue. In his latest stat?
. -?-lares himself for the recovery by the
?ity of th? perpetual franchises that have been
granted In the past Vet as chairman of the Hoard
t?mate committee he proposed to (?rant per
pernal rights to 'he railroads on the Immensely ral?
Hudson Hiver waterfront and without pay
?.. the city. Much may be ssid for his plan,
?. but be would be pul upon the defensive
with regard to it throughout the campaign.
Mr. Mitch?>i I- not without ability ?s a campaigner,
and there hi ? certain appeal in his personality ami
in part?; of his record, but. whatever paper organisa
?iay be marshalled in his behalf, he Is n
weaker candidato than Mr. ifcAneuy and a mucb
weaker candidate than Mr. Whitman.
Arms for Both or Neither?
The intimation is ??riven that our government may
reverse its policy concerning the shipment of anus
and ammunition to Mexico, and instead of forbid
dtog gUCfl traffic with either faction may authorise
it with both. Tho idea seems to be that thus the
contending parties would be enabled to Bght to ?
finish more promptly, nnd that they would thus
make a more enduring settlement.
That might he the case. But many will view
with extreme repugnance a proposal to supply mu
nitJona to two factions, both of which have been
guilty of murder and which are waging a war of
destruction and desolation. Plainly put, the pur
POM of sti'-h a policy would be to enable the bel?
llferentS to kill each other off and to establish peace
by making a solitude.
There is another grave objection. It would be
f?etting the precedent of supplying munitions ?>f war
to unrecognized belligerents. This country has rec?
ognized neither HuertA nor Carranza. If It coun?
tenances the selling of arrne to them, how will it
hereafter be able consistently to refuse the same
favor to any Insurgents who may crop up in that or
any other country?
On the ground of humanity, and nlso on that of
cunslis-tenr-y und a desire to avoid future embarrass?
ment, the policy of selling arms to neither seems
preferable to that of selling them to both.
The Mounting Municipal Payroll.

Bureau of Mnntdpai Besseret has just done, si

The political Job and the political Job holder
are said t<> COSt the taxpayers more than graft and

who found two or three departments of his fac?
tory turning OUt annually n greater volume of work
at a stable or even a re?ln?'e?l cost, while other de?
partments were incurring greatly increased ex
penses, would begin reorganization at once. What
ha? been done to ? notable ?-xtotit by Um borough

The Astor House Site for the Pottoffice.
The suggestion of the Astot House sito for the
new downtown postofflce which is now taken op by
th?' Merchants' Association Is worthy of thoughtful
consideration,
There is Indisputably need of a new postofflce, or,
rather, a new federal building for postofflce courts,

Trappini the Wild Auto.
TV "State Commissioner of Motor Vehicles In New
Jersey, who has charge of the licensing of automo
labile drivers and the general Inspection and regula
! tlon of such traffic, makes the extraordinary request
, of the police of all municipalities that they shall
[ establish "speed traps" for the detection and capture
| of law-breakers.
Hitherto such devices have been decried as "n?>t
I cricket." Doubtless they wen? lawful, and aimed lit
dis rangement of lawless speeding. Bui even the
courts regarded them With disfavor, as I mean
method of doing a good thine.
The recommendation of them, now, by the bl?hest
authority in the state. Indicates how great is the
abuse of the highways and how argent the need of

The Panama Canal?a Noble Monument

The mer?' thougbl of "beautifying" the Panama.

The "King of the Weather."
The new chief of the Weather Bureau is the
right man in the right place Professor Marvl
been connected with tbla branch of the government
service from the time it was a military bureau un?
der the War Department. II?- has won recognition
through administrative ability and scientific work,
Involuting many of the Instrumenta now used for
meteorological oh ervatlon and contributing ma?
terially to the growth of meteorological knowledge
it 1-. gratifying to learn that under the new chief
more attention will be given to making the bureau's
reporta "f practical value t>> a?-rlcultiire. That Is
the bureau's most important function, and it was
lost sight of to some extent during th** Incumbency
of Professor Marvin's predecessor, it i- far from
desirable thai the bureau should engage In such
?-?de Issues ?is predicting "McKinley weather" for an
Inauguration and then see Washington swepl by a
iiHzy.nrd. Professor Moore's spectacular experiences
With "flarebacks" on various critical political occa?
sions emphasize the impolicy of trying to put too
much "human interest" into weather predictions,
It is not necessary for the head of the bureau to
figure as ? sort of moving picture Weather King,
enthroned In his palace on Mount Weather, There
will probably be less splurge snd more practicality
In fbrecast work under Professor Marvin's admin?
lst ration.
The Strain of Savagery.
They used to tell a story of a (Vntra! American
dictator Who had his own brother, Who was his
political rival, chained t<? a post In the compound
I adjoining his house, and kept him there for weeks.

Meet the Charges Fully.
The gccusatlon that Governor Bulser expended In
his campaign for election sums of money for which
he rendered no sw.rn SCCOunting, thus violating ?M
r-tat.-'s taws, has m>t been proved, The Prawley
legislative committee has put <?n the re.oni evidence
regarding a $2,600 che k supposed to have been con?
tributed by Jacob H. Schill and a 1600 cheek coo
tributad by Abrhm I. Blkus. The committee has
not established any motive for the concealment Ol
these Items, which were not listed in the Bulser
accounting. It is perfectly possible that some ex?
planation can be made Which will set the whole
matter Straight
Governor Bulser must meet this charge, though,
absolutely and completely. It Is too Serious to laugh
??"?'..? or to try to throw out of court as another
Murphy plot. The question of the legal right of the
committee to take evidence on this siibjct even is
DOt material now. for the committee has made the
matter public, and Quibbling over a technl' iillty will
not meet the iss-u,? thus created. Governor Bulger Is
??? oft? er, acting under <>ath t?> uphold the laws
and serve the people, He ''an Well afford to waive
all formalities nnd technicalities for himself ami
all those who gseisted him in his campaign, so thai
the fullest Information regarding these checks and
any other matters the legislative committee may
bring up may go on the record. Indeed, for his own
, bonor and the state's, be may not do less.
