Bverj'botiy but tbo fusion eominlttee la abla to
appre.-iate tha stri-n-rth ol Diatrict Attorney Whlt
man. M-JoaaN Murphy wanta bim opon his ticket
Anl ('ommi*su>ner McCall. Murphy's candidate,
wanta Um, too. Tlte sun." an admlrer of Ifayot
l.aynor, would like to bring about a ree<.n?-l!latl<>n
batwoea Mayor Gaynor nnd Mr. whitman, ao thal
tht> Mayor aleo could bava bim opon bla ti.ket.
No party ls willing to out.r tba ra.-e with the
Diatrict Attorsej nuudng agalnat it.
This unanimous desire for him as a candidat.' is
tottertng to him. it beapaaba the poiitieians' esti
mate of hia strength. It ls not flatteiing to the
fusion committee. who failed to pereeivo that
etrength and rojected him as candidate fur Mayor lu
favor of a much weaker man, partly to please Mr.
Hearst, who now repudiates BBOBt of the fusion
city ticket.
iSo far as the Committee of 107 is concerned Mr.
Whitman is certainly free to take the Taminaiiy
nomlnatlon. The Diatrict Attorney is uudcr DO
obligations to that committee. He has done already
?11 that the enmniittee can ask of him in the way of
saving its ill onceived piaus from utter ship
?wreck. And if the comniittee siu.-ervly wants Mr.
Whitman to be Diatrict Attorney it ought to iae
glnd to see one of its candidates asstirod of alec*
tion. The publlc certainly would be glad to be as
Bured of tbe District Attorney's electlon.
But ls it necessary for Mr. Whitman to take a
nominatinn from Murphy to ba sure of BOOtbar
term? The eagerncss of Murphy and Judge McCall
te get him on their ticket is proof enough of his
extraordlnary hold upon tba dty. They evidently
fear lest ho wlll pmve strong enough not only to
be n-.-lctcil. but to pull tlirongh the rest of the
fusion ticket with him. And no act of the -Mstrid
Attorney'a could so lianraaa the pubUc and so in?
crease his already great str.-ngth BB fl refusal tO
allow his name to be used by Tamniany Hall.
Mr. Whitman had fl splendid opportunity to BbOW
his chani-ter and capacity (ot lea.ler-diip when the
fusion commtttea brought tba anti-Tammany move?
ment near to destruction. He made the most of lt.
He wlU have an equally splendid opportunity if Mur?
phy offers him fl Tammany nominatinn. Murphy
will put hlm on the Tammany ticket only for the
raurpoaa Of taklng the odge off the anti-Tammany
issu.v Mr. Whitman is not the kind of man to help
Murphv take tba edga off the auti-Tammany laaue.
A Mexican Message for Information Only.
It is not yet certaln whether the President will
deliver his Mexi.-an message. lt is snid that he will
not do so if before the hour sot for lt t'eneral Huerta
a<*cede? to a satlsfactory degree to the friendly sug
gestions which have been made to hlm. In that
view we may hope that the BTMBaaga will not be read.
But if it is read because of Oiieral Huerta's re
calcitrancy we must hope that lt will be for infor?
mation only. It would be lamentable to have the
President make of lt a counsel of despair. turning
over to Ongress a problem with which he was not
bimself able to deal. It would be almost as bad to
have the message serve as a pretext for au un
bridled outburst of town meetiug debatea In Con
gress. which could have no other etfect than to make
the problem more dlflicult to solve.
We must also hope that the President's dlsclosures
of Ms Mexican policy to European nations are simi
larly made for information only. Of course, Kuro
pean approvul of his policy and intimatlons of that
fact to Mexico would be weleome. But it would be
intolerable to have them the objOCt <?f the r.-pre
aantatlons. lt ls legitimate tO lei Kuropean govern
ments know what we are doing in Mexico, but not
to mal.o an api>c:il io them to help in* or to UBB their
Infiuence with Mexleo ln our behalf. This country
ls quite empetent to deal wlth Mexico without
European aid.
If, then, the message ls deliveied to-day, we must
hopo that ir wtU be a convincing exposition of a
sane and ratlonal policy, which will give Oaccaakni
for no Oogajnaal mai <>r dii?lomatic coiitn.versy, hut
which will caiise C.n'rress and the nation to align
themselves, silently but resolutely and unanlmotisly,
ln BUUport of t'le adminlstration; and. above all,
which wlll make that support perfectly obvious tO
Ihe Mexi.-nn covernment. DMded couhanbl here
1P0u!.l be dLcastr)us. Tl:e assurance that this wlmie
nation knows W uit its President is dolng and stip
?>orts him iu it ought tO t?e impr.^sive. e\en to a
Mexican dictator.
A Sad Case of Truth Told Too Late.
Mayor Gaynor's feelinug ought 10 be soothed by
Mr. McCall's tatarfJBtlng revelation that Gaynor. not
M'( all, was Mt.rphy's flnt <'hoi<e for head of the
rity ti.'ket. lt niil be <-omfortiii>; to His Honor to
kimw Uiat the bOOl'l heart still beal true f<> Ihe

(tmin.'n.le.l B poUCf <>f "kind wor.ls" t<. the master
mind an.l ma>t< r haml which had thrust him into
the Mayoralty.
Kind beartfl are more than coi'onets. and kind
words are BOHM in.es a sul.stitute tor erdan <m tba
iii,. counter. Murphy must have bOBg toudu'd to
the marrow by the iin.xp^ted gratitude .liselosni
in the "kind w u.ls" letter. If Mr. McCall under
