McCall Would Turn Over the Places j to .Murphy " Without a Blush." Aaftflt Mr. McCall's gpeflCk at tlie Tammany Hall raUticalion Pflflting hfl D-g-l }**** as well stop Th tfgpMng his shopworn phrase tbtmt being "_0 man's mau." Wlth ttM hungry hnrdes ?'f Tammany sur rouuding him- their months watering fOT the plums of patronagfl, he voiced what he termed his "?'m-.r': -ln ttM sdctiou ol P**N* 0_k4_to, if the Dg_a> crmttc ticket is gtoetod, wa wiiironsuit ttM leaders Of our party." Tliis Wtmld bfl eminently proper. ho averred. bflCaUflfl DO Demoerat ever asked public officials to do anything which would brinp tlie blush ?of shame to their hmws. The effronteiT of Tammany's candidate in pro Tlflimlm at this time tlie old. old political creed ?Tn Ihe victors belong the spoils" is astonishiug. While the whole state is ringing wlth Sulzer's eharge that h?* was impeached l-eeause he wouldn't turn over the Iligbways Department, with its huge con? tracts, to Murphy's associate, "Jim" (.affncy, aml Ihe Labor Department. with a hundred new and lucrative Joba, td Murphy's man "The" McManus. McCall calmly expresses confidence that "the Chief would never ask hlm to do anything which would ibrlng a blush to his brow. Rlushes are largely fl matter of sensitive COB [gClggre and tomperament. Perhaps Mr. McCall would find himseif able. at Murphy's request, tn band over the Police Department of this city lo ?Ton," Foley. and the Fire Department to "The" M*-.M,inus, and the Department of Water Supply. Ggg aild Klectricitr to "Jlm" Caffney. Bnch ? course would be ijuite in line with his handing OOt refereeships to the Tainmany faithful during his Kerrice as Supreme Court Justice. But every decent dttMB would blush fbf him and feel tempted to Wigp fo* ttM city's shame. ll la fortimate for the city that Mr. McCall's con fflaaloa "f allegiance t<> Murphy and his promise to shake the ]ilum tree for Murphy's bojg eome at this time.

OM of the BBOfll signifiennt phases of the city c.'iini paltm hns heen the pronounced drift of the substan tial lu-iness element to the support of John Purroy lOtcbeJ. Many. if not most, business mon have in teuiled all along t<i vte for the rest of the fusion tnket. but stories of Mr. Mltchel's "socialistic ten demics" daunted thom as to his candidacy?until they lavflflttgatfl- Now lelters, interviews and checks daily flttflflt their purpose to vote for him and against Tamm.'iny. It is | bopflfOiI sign, furnishIng fresh prnof that the voter these days does his own thinking. No campaign shihboleth of "socialism" applied to Tam niany's opponent or of "economy" applied to Tam many's own man has been able to stand the test of faeUi, duly analyzed. Practical, honorable business ? men will vote fnr the fusion ticket and progress and egainst Tammnny and misrule, as they ahould. To What the President Has Opened the Door. If President Wil9on wants to know what appoint? ments to the "cxempt" cl.iss in the civil servbe often BM?, in view of his approval of the efforts ot Conijrress to tamper with the merit system, he mijilit profltably recall some testimony which was recently glven at an official investigatimi ln this stale. For example: "What were hls duties ns confidential clerk?" "Well. really, I couldn't find anything for him ?to do." "Wouldn't a confidential clerk have some ntnted duties?" "He would be confidential to me, but I did all the confidential work myself. I didn't flnd anything for hlm to do." "Were there some days when he dld not report?" "There wire a good many days when I never saw ,him." "Did you certify that he* worked regularly?" "Yes, 1 certlfled to the payroll." "You certlfled that he worked every day?" "Yes, sir." The "confidential" employe in question himseir was lnterrngated. and replled as follows: "What hours did you work?" "Well, I couldn't say. 1 done whatever work was to be done, but tlure isn't very much work at? tached to the OfBce I held." "You tock your salary right alonfr"" "Yes." "Dtd you feel that you were entitlcl tfl takr your salarv from the stat*?'.'" "Well. 1 took it." And of such _ the dtM of "exemi'ts" and 'Vontt dential" employes, which the President MV bMfl to increase and multiply. Another King for Bavaria. The determination of the Bavariau governnieiit to depo-e King Otto and to euthrone the Priacg Ke gent, Ludwig. in his phue ir> reasonable and just. | but the fact that the depositiou has been delayed ko i long is u striking tribute to the conservatism <if the j i-ountry and to its regard for the divine right ot i kln^s. li waa not stiaii-c tlia' th*- ??.-<rti-t King" Ludwig II was declared insane und waj? Nntaced by a regeut. or that the regemy was continue?l after hia death aud the uoiuinal accessiou of his still luott* insane brother. But it wat; fl_tnord_Mrj that the regency shouid bg muintaiued for more than tweiity seven years, durini; all of whlch time it fl*M ahout as ciTtuin as anything could be iu human affairs tbat Otto would never bt* uble to reign aud would provide u*> bfl?' tn succeeal him. Ludwig III, as the new King will I.e styled. is three years older than the madinan whose plaee he will take. but he is a man of stulwart body aud inind, wltb numerous chiidren aml grandchiidren. so tbat the succession to tbe tbrone will be well as sured.' Tlie change will not alter the relations 0 tlie klngdom to UM ompire. DOT will it affect tbe do* maaUr affairs of Bavaria. ? Hirds of a Feather.

To span tbe gap from Napoleon as l.inpcror t'? the Panama canal is ? bandeome period of living. Mo wonder that mootl of Williamsburg t iirn.il OOl 1" do bonor to its centeneiltn, Joseph De Long. What added espectflJ interest to this lively old eiti zen's birthday party was the fact that he was ahle to furnish hls own parade. Six children. tsventy-nine grandcbi-draa. twanty-nlne gr8nt*granifkhlh1r8-i gnd two great-great-grandcbildren marcbed in his wake and tonsed the nelghbothobd to iou<i tbeera. This appeals to us as tlie best centenarian's re' onl we bare seen in a good while. IMially such Bged <iti/.ciis seem to have DOCUag to talk ahout on their birthdays save their use of ruin?or else thelr total Bbottnence from liquor. tobacco nnd everything uf interest. Such oocasions appeal to us as dulness personlfied. As for Mr. Joseph De Long. he ha. mnde his mark in the worl.l gnd hns every right to celchrate. May his parade increase! Among His Own. It was entlrely natural that Mr. MeCall should have fhe greatest "ovntion" of his campaign in Tain many Hall. Lnlike many other prophets. he is not without honor in hls own country. As "Big Tom'' Foley well said when the Delmonleo Designallon Council was in session, Mr. McCall answers exactly to the description, "a man of our kind." The candldate for Mayor this year did not have to look wonderlnfty around and say to the Btartled ahorigines gatheretl to meet him. "So this is Tam? many Hall." He knew moet of tlietn and all of them knew him, nml it was their sulilime faith that hc would live up to the last letter of liis obligation1* to them ns a trihesman nnd ? brother that ggpreaeed itself in that twenty-eight minute hurrah. A Mississippi Ci.ngressiiian who came here to the last Tammany Fourth of July celebration said that the fnithful who were admltted to lhe barbectie which followed the speaking ate like famished beasts. lt was tlie cry of the starvlng whi. h met the Mayoralty candidate's ears on Tuesday nlgbt T'ney feel that they will not 88k for bread. if Mc? Call is elected, and. receive a sbuie. Nowhere else !n the city could he have had or expected a mote onthusiastic welcome. That welcome ls Itself the most ilhiu.inating evldence yet given of tbe true eliaraeter of his candidacy. His heart beal as 008 wlth the famished. He was at bOOBfl gmottg "his own." Fancy and Fact in Latin America. The President does not exaggerato the evils ..f ihe foreign lOltceeelon and loan system in Latin Amer? ica, but it ls to be feared that he is overoptlmlstic in hls vision of its immediate abolitiou. Tbooe coun? tries, be says, "will DOW be etuancipatcil from those conditions." Yet at this very momenl one of j the largest concesslons on record is being granted ln Colombia, and others are in ptoepect The fact is that those countries simply must bave foreign capital and euterprise for tlie development of their resources, and if they ennnot gel them iu one way they must ln another. The Prealdent says that we ought to be the lirst to assist th.-m in ilieir emancipation. Yes; but hoss? Hc deprecatOfl the very thought of material inlerests. and insists that our union witli those states must be a spiritual union and our commerce with them a .ominerce of thought and aympathy. Hut will spirituality pro? vide capital or sympathy build rnilroads7 Foreign loans and coueossions have dotibtless beetubordensome to l.atin America. Bnl aometblni more than amiable phrnses iv needed to take their plgce. The aiil whicli this country should give lt* Southern neighbors is material as well as spiritual Indeed, if we will assist them to deTelop thelr material resources. they will be able themselves |o look out for eonstitutional liberty nnd human lighta. The Manhattan Borough Presidency. Adminlstration of tlie affairs of Manhattan Bor ough has gone a long way ahead under Oeotge Mc? Aneny. Lffieieney, eeonomy and a broad construc tive spirit uiidt'canied of in Tainniany times bave marked the conduct of that oCBea under the fusion ndmiiilstration There have been no favorites and there has been no graft.
