The Tribune uses It? best endeavors to Insure thi trustworthineas of every advertisement it print? an?i to avoid the publication of all advertisements contain? ing misleading statement? or claims. All That McCall Now Needs Is an ''Anti-Murphy" Testimonial from Croker. Murphys desire to sit in the background ami nol have his personality hkso? iated with the candidates whom he has put on the local Tammany ticket must not be imputed to any passing idiosyncrasy 01 modesty. As a leader Murphy has not been vcr\ M-lf-effaeing.

Mr. McCall doesn't need a guide to find his waj into the Tresence. Abandoning the public notifica tion ceremony at which nominees for city office? were expected to acknowledge their obligation t?. and asscKlation with Tammany will deceive nobodv In the rase of a man so near to Murphy's innei councils. The Murphy nominee for Mayor wns I member of the Iielmonico conference of eight at which Tammany's mind for this campaign wni made up. If in his case the notification ceremony was dropped it was not because he was so untama ble an anfl-Tamraanyite that wild horses could n<?t have dragged him over the route which Judgt Gaynor cheerfully travelled with the aid of a taxi, cab and guide book. This is * desperate year for Tammany, and If there are gudgeons foolish enough f? IM caught with the pretence that. Mr. M?Cnll Is "n?> man's man" Murphy cannot be blamed fur trying to catch them. He would be entirely willing to pee Mr. ll?cCall elected g| an "anti Murphy man" If lluit VU the only *?ay in which he could be elected.

The ?Sooner the Better. The Ite,)iibllcan Congressional Committee has in formally approved a plan for altering the basil of representation in Republican national rjoavolitions. This committee is a voluntary ?aioclattou formed hy members of Congress to proiii??t?' party success in Congress elections. It has no authority to speak and act for the party, as the national committee has. but. being concerned with ?Ke/pabllean ?TOCCOTH next year, when a n?w House of Representatives and otic third of the Senato are to l?e chosen, it realizes even more clearly than the national com mitte? has seemed to realize that if the party wauls |o win it miM ?Siailifeal a new spirit Of (WVafNB? siveness and liberality and put control of its ma ch.ncry back into the hands of the Itepubli? an v??ters. The national committee should bestir itself to ?airy out the -will of the ?party. The state conven lions of Michigan and New York?the only conven? tions held so far in this "off" year -have demand?'?! a change in the ha?-ls of representation and the calling of I co!i\onti??n for the purpose of inukmg that ?hange.

The Republican house should be set In order before- the campajaaj for the control of the n?>xt Congress begins That Third Sex Again.

It may he that we are facing a time in Which humanity will be Jed !>y a race of super-meu and super-women, served and maintained by a race of female workers. But we doubt it.
