They ere extremely mistaken who assume this morning that the death of Mayor Oatnos narrows the question now before the cltlsena of New York to s choice between dishonest govern ment and Hapgood fusion. As The Hr has pointed out from the begin ning of this extraordinary canvas, the good citizen 1s going to the polls this year to make bla own fusion. Select ing his candidate for each particular office on the merits of the Individual, ho Is going to care less than ever be fore In the history of municipal poli tics for party nomenclature. He Is go ing to take the good wherever be finds it. and to reject the doubtful that la tied up with the good. He Is going to safeguard the city, so far as his vote can do it. alike from revolution, from extravagance and from plunder. His very first coucern, we should any, Is to BAYS New York from the immeasurable disaster "f the socialistic ir semi-social-ltlc experiments portended by the con Untied presence of Mr. John Praaov Mitchel St the head of the Hapgood ticket. If the promoters of Hapgood fusion desire to make a really simple !ne with Tammany Hall, let them re consider MtlOtttL, the Henrstlan fn vorlte and SHOWS Mocker, nnd put up n candidate for Mayor who lu sanity, nullity, integrity and IndspsndsOCS of lnlster Influence Is Judge MoCali.'r lunerlor. If they can find such a man, fortunate the alternative for the town and Its people ! The senate and the Presidency. Trying to dissuade the Hon. Oscab W. I'NDEBWoon from taking a trfthsfef to the Senate, our esteemed contem porary the Hrraltl says: "No member of the Senate has ever be come President." Mr. 1'ndebwood bits not, we believe, been stung by that mocking gadfly of Presidential ambition; bat the Senate has been an excellent school of Presi dents. Monroe. J. Q. Adams.

Har iiison were all Senate graduates who took a higher degree; nnd i abeield, as everybody knows, would have taken ills seat lu the Senate if he had not been elected President. New York's Organization Republi can Mayor. In an authoritative biography of ardolimi Lours klink of Brooklyn, Alderman from the Fifty-first district. viiDH-halrmun of the Board f Alder men lines January 1, 1912, President nf the'Board of Aldermen slue June 7, 19irt, ami Mayor of New fork city luce Wednesday, Septewlier 10. ap pears the subjoined summary of his major polltleui alliances: "He has adhered strictly to sound Re publican principles. "He Is a member of the Tenth Assembly District Republican t'lub. and has figured In all the activities of that organlratlon. "He has also been a member of the Kings County Rennblloan iJrneral Com mittee for the p,o,t twelve years, and has taken part In nil the deliberations and enterprises of that very powerful com mittee." This Is the mail who succeeded to the office of Muyor on Mr. tlAYNOS'S death. He should know something nbotit the city government. He was 1111 Alderman from January, 1904. to January, 1908. In the latter year he was appointed by President Koosevely n assistant appraiser of merchandise lu the customs service, nnd In 1911 he was again elected an Alderman as a Republican, Mads YlcehairBtan of the board, he automatically succeeded John PUS boy Mm hei as President of that body when Mr. MlTCHIL tUlt his city office. The clauses of thn Charter under which Mr. Kline will exercise the authority of Muyor arc clear. They provide that : "The Roard of Aldermen ahall elect a vice-chairman to preside over lu meeting 1, ho shall posses! the powers and perform the duties of the President of ti. BOVi of Aldermen . wnr Vliril occurs In said office . . Mi wno hall, during such time, he a member of every board of which the president of said Board nf Aldermen la a member bv virtue at his office." What those mwers aud duties aro the Charter sets forth iu this fashion: "Whenever there shall he a vacancy n the erne of Mayor . ttie ,real. J dent of the floard nf Aldermen shall net 1 a Mayor ' Md possess all Ifci rights and powers of Mayor . "In case of a vacancy he shall ao act until noon of the llrat day of January succeeding the election at which the Mayor's successor ahall be choaen. I "It ahall not he lawful for the Presi dent of the Hoard of Aldermen when act ing as Mayor In conaefiuenre of the slck neaa or ahaence from the city of the Mayor, to exercise any power of ap pointment to or removal from office, un less aueh alrkneas or ahaence of the Mayor ahall have continued thirty days: or to sign, approve, or disapprove any ordl- nance or resolution unless such sickness or absence shall have continued at least nine days. It will be seen that the tune lltntta-'to tlon on the noting Mayor's powers of Alirtntrirmnitf romnvil and innrnvil of ordinances is designed to restrain that , . official only in case of the Mayor's nun-; atfeniiance tnrougn temporary absence or sickness, not when the office Is vacant. Mr. Klinf possesses now nnd will possess until noon of January 1 all the powers formerly exercised by William J. Caynob. Mr. Kline presided over the Hoard of Aldermen In Ita meeting on June 17, st which the t'urran police Inquiry committee's report was defeated be-j cause of ita demand for the removal of Commissioner Waldo. Mr. Kline per - emptorlly refused to vote on the pro - posal, and from this It has been Judged thnt his sympathies do not lie with the extremists among the late Mayor's op - ponents. He has protested against the eiry s nnnir or carrying uniniproveii : real estate, a source of great expense ; to the taxpayers, and has therein shown I dlsnosltloo to ronnl a. Immrtsnt . the esaentl.1 but non-sensatlons. dutlesj of public office. He granted all night 1 licenses to respectable liquor dealers In Coney Island for the present eele-: brntlon. thus Indicating a not Illiberal attitude toward merrymakers. Mr. Kline's service may be too short for the accomplishment of great things, but it will afford him an op-j portnnlty to write s resiiectahle name nm . on the roster of Majors. Surely, the presence in that office of an organiza tion Republican Is a novelty In this town worth contemplating. A ftrcat Public Character. To this generation the name of Joiix Y.

The tiaynor of the last four years, Mayor QaTKOB, the homely, multangular and always salient figure of so much attraction and repulsion, must have been the continuation and unfolding of the earlier, but he took on a sharpness 1 of contour, a warmth of color and an unfailing and varying charm, felt and aekimwletlgetl even by enemies of the . .

Menatnr Morris's Meheme te Penalize Thrift and eenmulallon. To tub Kditor or Tur, Hon Mr: What Is the moral of Senator Morris's recent speech against grent fortunes? It Is strange to group the Astor and Carnegie millions, for no one pretends that the fallacy of the "unearned Increment" has aught to do with the steel master's money. Computation shows that the IJ.OOO.noo said by the Senator to have leen Invested by the original Astor, say 100 years ago, If at 4 per cent. Interest compounded annually, would now amount lo S 101, 011,000 . somewhat more, but the five figure logarithms available permit no closer calculation If Interest were paid each half year, as la common, the total Would be $ I o i.r.c. i.ooo Apparently the public ones Mr. Astor from eleven to tlfteen millions or so ; but perhaps the doctrine of loot your neighbor Is not re versible. Klgured ot in per cent., often paid lu the West, the'total would almost buy the country. I take no account of taxes nnd upkeep, but with these In cluded there Is no "unearned Increment." Rut what Is the argument? Surely the Senator does not declaim against thrift : The original John Jacob accumu lated In creat hardship nnd peril, by for sight, Industry and commercial acu men of the highest order, and then ln vested In whnt he thought would Increase In value. What, In the Senatorial opinion, ought he to have done? The logic of the speech is not to accumulate at all, or If YOU do, put It all Into "cats and dogs" And lose It. What doctrine Is that to preach In the most Improvident and extravagant country in the world The Senator, with candor, says: Am fur hi I know. nore. of them the Antnr fnmllv! too ever ilene h rtlnhenornhle s f in the acqulettlefl ef his property. As far nn I knew, the present young Mr. Astor l perfectly honorable, perfectly honest, SBd too, not dons anything to se cure Rla fortune thai l Illegal, dlsrepu t title, ut.'ntr ami dltthoneet. Then, In the name of reason, why hold Hint up to reprobation? is this a reward for decency and sobriety, Industry and thrift" So of Mr Carnegie ; what has he done? The steel for a bridge In Washington over Rock Creek cost .1 cents a pound ; this was before Carnegie. Recently It was replaced with far better material, I do not know at what price, but current quo tations are about 1.0 cents; largely Car negie's doing I.Ike the famoua "mouse trap" man. the world made a beaten path to his door because he had better ateel at lower prices than any one else: what crime Is that" He taught the Industry that It could not afford not to afford Im provements, paid lietter wages, made bet ter goods and sold them cheapest. Like the Senator. I would not do with his money what he does j hut that Is his business. Is the argument to be. stated candidly, thus : You are rb h . most voters are not. many are poor. Therefore no niattfr what your YtrtUSBi nor hew llttlfl II In my affair. 1 will point at you. for that Is my cue. Senator Morris would be the first to repudiate, with honcat Indignation, such a suggestion . but that is the logic of such statements. Poos Man. New York. September 11. SECRETARY BRYAX. An American of Kreneh Birth on the Itinerant Lecturer. To thk Editor or The Ri n Sir: What -:tn be s:,!d or printed on M. Mryan'a lecture touring on education or other sub jects will never be understood by French men, Englishmen. German or even Japa nese, peoples of which the mentality does not go further than to understand that the duty of a Hecretary of State Is to Invest evtfry minute of his life to the sacred Interests of his country aa long as he is called to such an honor. Hence the astonishment and amusing inquiries of European newspapers aa the one of the Kxcrlnor reproduced In Thb SON asking M. Bryan to tell the French I public his reasons for attending the Chautauqua fair with a cargo of educa tional goods when Indeed he could better invest his time lu solving such problems aa those which arc confronting not only the Monroe Doctrine but also what might lie some day the vital interests of the United siat.s "en autrss Ileus," as a Damocles sword. A "I should worry" or a "must mal.e money for diplomatic grape iuice" or something else of the sort, could be good I excuses for many. They do not stand for a man wnose magisiraiure is nexi to the Ptesldenllal one. What would Amer icans think of S'.r Edward Grey, even for the sake of education, addressing the public at Epsoto on Dl rby day or In Petticoat I.sne a .Sunday morning: nf PiOhon opening the Montmartre fair with a speech on soology, "falsant le bonl ment" at the doors ot the Peson menag erie, or of Herr von Jagow conferring In j an Cuter der Linden music hall. I do not mention the Japan because it I is easy to guess that the Mikado would 1 send by special delivery to a Secretary ! of SVite afflicted with the conferring ( paranoia an order to proceed at once to i the abdomen operation called kink, j Nothing is worse than to be turned 1 into ridicule, and I can aasure you, M. 1 Editor, that I suffer very much from the ridicule thrown by Mr Hryan s perform ances to the country 1 love aa mine.

September 11. sihotild "The Ntsr ftpangled Manner" lie Heard With the lgs? To thk ROITOR nr Thb Hcn Sir- Re ferring lo the letter of Miss Rooth In Thk Bum asking why reapcrt to the air "The Star Spangled Ranner." which ahe calls "national." is not always shown by Americans rising when It la played, I answer It Is perhaps because they are Americans and have Imbibed real Amer ican idcaa licit they refuse to go through a silly form of rospect for an "air." Waiving the fact that the "air" is not Awei'lean but lOngllsh. it has never been adopted as national, but merely aa patri otic, and that quality It share with many others. The silly custom of rising when ever thnt air is played In public Is of recent origin. It Is a poor Imitation of the English custom of rising when "Ood Have the King" Is played formally at the termination of a public function. This Is an expression of respect to the reigning dynasty, and therefore expresses a senti ment utterly Inappropriate here. U waa attempted to he grafted here by some weak sentimentalists who like to ropy thlnga foreign. Neither Washington nor Lincoln, Jefferson nor Jackson, nor any of the true Americans of their times prac tised such nonsense. American Institutions were established partly In opposition to fetish worship of every kind. True patriotism doea not seek to exhibit Itself by posturing.

On August 31 ot this year Justice Weeks In the Supreme Court In this city enjoined Rellly from disposing of any part of this money or of Clenfuegos Railway and Power Company stock and Espada Cemetery property in Havana.

From Jnlr 4. Albany, Sept. II. Voters In the new county of The Bronx will be required to show that they have a realdence of at least four months preceding the election this year In order to vote In November. An opinion to that effect has been given by Attorney-General Carmody In re sponse to the following question sub mitted to him by the State Superintendent of Elections : "Is a person having other qualifications of a voter, but who will not have been a resident within the territory Included by Bronx county for four months preceding the general election of 1913. qualified to vote thereat?" "It la clear that the Legislature has provided for the election of theee officers and consequently the woters mus' have the qualifications of electors elsewhere set forth in the Constitution," says Attorney-General Carmody. "The fact that residence of four months within the ter ritory to be included In Bronx county was not required, but a realdence at that time anywhere In New York county, was allowed to electors who voted on the referendum, has no application now, since laat year the act erecting the county was not operative until after the election. "I am therefore of th opinion that residence for four months within the ter ritory included within Bronx county Is one of the qualifications required of a voter therein." V. S.
