('ol. Roosevelt's position in declaring
for a bolt and a now party is about
j what has been foreshadowed right along
during the campaign. He goes into the
convention with the fixed notion that
be mu-t be nominated or K isn'i fan
He ,ir,d the allied nnn -TaTt forces were
" ' oted mi the convention on nvo
forced rollcalls under an organization
recognised by themselves, thev partici
pating in that organization but getting
'si on the rhoiee of temporary offi
cio S, and being beatei, in tiie proposed
substitute toll of membership.
I ben when it ram,. ;,, the final make
up of the membership of the convention.,
the Committee on Credentials showiug
a disposition to support the findings ol J
the National Committee, thus continu
ing the membership roll as it had been.
Col. Roosevelt flare- up and declares
that he won't stand it. He is willing to
overlook tiie election ol Senator Rool,
be is willing to overlook the voting
down of tbe Had lev and Deneeu mo
tions for the amendment of the mem
bership roll, and stilJ remain n Repnb-
lican and uhmit his case to the con
rention; but when it. come to the Cre
dentials t'ommittee of the convention it- ,
elf ratifying the roll, and reporting
in favor of the membership as made1
up by the National f'ommittee, then he
revolts. He declares that he represents
the people, and that the people have
chosen him irrespective of ihe conven
tion; therefore he intends t" run.
In this view of the eae n is nm
easy to understand what Roosevc( is
in Chicago for. If he was nominated
beforehand by the people, why should
he submit his claims to the Republican
National Convention at all Why should
he ;n to Chicago 1 Why should he
bother with seeking another nomination,
when he already baa one from ihe peo
ple 1
The truth about tine whole matter of
Col. Roosevelt is that lie seems to be a
monomaniac upon the inbjecl of the
people wanting him to be President.
He is not onl impatient, but furious, at
the idea of anv opposition to I his idea
which has become so firmly fixed in ins
mind. He believes fully that the peo
ple have made a call upon him to be
the next President of tbe United states.
He finds that the Republican Conven
tion does not acree with him in I his.
and he raises a shout of fraud and im
posture, which is aio a confession of
defeat. And 3 et t he committee, in de
ciding the cases, decided them all with
candor, fairness, and according to the
rules and precedents. Kvon though the
delegates that, he specifically names
were oivcn to him, he would stiH be
short of the nomination; and t must be
remembered that his warm supporters
in the National Committee voted with
the Taft forces against, his contested
delegates in nearlv every instance It
must be remembered also that. Mr. M1111
sey. his special friend and supporter,
admits that those contests for the most
part were got up simply for effect, and
not because there was any merit in
Col. Roosevelt, in taking the attitude
that he has done in this matter, places
himself altogether outside of the Re
publican party, and shows to the coun
try that he is a mot) impatient of oppo
sition and in revolt against defeat. He
will play the game if he wins, and will
jump the game if he loses. Such a dis
position as this is held to he eontompti
be among men, and the one who show
it and acts upon that showing is neces j
sarily condemned b every fair minded
citizen, The one who goes into a con j
test with tbe determination to abide bv j
the result only if he wins, is con- J
tempt ihle by every standard acknowl
edged by fair and manly men.
It is indeed curious to read that
Congress is still wrestling with the
civil service question. The House of
Representatives passed a bill to limit
the tenure of office-holding under the
civil sen ice rules in the District of
Columbia io a given number of years,
making the enil service in the District
not. a matter of permanence, but. prao
tieally of a given term of , ears.
The Senate objects to this, but in an
objectionable way. The Senate propo
sition is that at fixed periods those in
the civil service shall be 1 ubjert to ex
amination in order to maintain effi
ciency in the incumbents of office. The.
theorv of this amendment appearg to
be that applicants under the civil eerv
ice rules mav "cram" for the exam
ination, and having once got in. being
really inefficient nlthough they may
have passed, must be subject to further
examinations from time to tune in or
der to keep up then- condition of ef
fectiveness. The suspicion about this
seen:, to le that under that system of
periodical examinations there would ba
favoritism and political "pull.''
Doubtless this objection it quite cor-1
rect, for that would be the tendency.
Under the House proposition, the ab- I
solute determination of terms lor the !
civil service incumbent would amount
to ,ibout tiie- same tiling as the old 1
"spoils system," so much objected to.
Cnder tme law as it is, there is no such
thing as a fixed term in the c-.vi gcrv- !
i--e; but tiie merit svst e m utider which
appointments ?re marie contemplates
thai the incumbent of office shall re- I
main in office indefinitely, as long as
bil or her work is satifactorv.
There is no doubt but that in one I
ense the Senji.e proposition mifm J
have certain advantages, it would!
keep fhe ,-ivil service employees up to
liiOir wort by requiring them lo be at ,
all times efficient and able to pass the j
examinations Bui since the idea ap- !
pears to be that the old political pull
and favoritism would probably b-1 re
instated, the calm judgment of the ub
lie undoubtedly would be that it i.
better, to let well enough alone than to
interfere with a svstem which is not
vet. as flrmlv founded at It oueht to be.
but which certainly has thus far yield
ed commendable results.
j The ruling of the Interior Depart
I men! in ihe matter of patenting of
1 mines, as set torth m The Tribune yes
terday morning, follows the objection
I able lines which The Tribune opposed
when irev were firs: declared. .0011
after that first declaration, Senator
Kearns was in Washington, and the of
' ficials of the General Land Office as
jsured him thai the case upon which
I that objectionable ruling wu based
j was unusual, nud would not be followed
in general. Bui now it seems thai the
ruling complained of is to be made a
fixeit poln of the department.
Heretofore it has been the rule thai
fhc discovery of mineral or a lode in
piai c entitled the discoverer Lo a pnt
ent when the necessary work prescribed
by law and the district regulations had
been performed. Now under Id's ttOW
ruling, not only musl ;he discovery be
made and the location staked on; as
heretofore-, bul the work must be pros
ecuted to depth, and it must be demon
strated thai the liuder has made, in
fact, a discovery of valuable ore or
mineral profitable to work. Obviouslj
this ruling will bar anv poor prOspOC
for froui ever getting a patent, because
very few prospectors are able to do the
extent of work which is contemplated
I m this new ruling
it seems as though I tah ought to
be represented in Washington by Con
gressmen who would take some interest
in repelling assault upon her develop
ment. We have besides t;i abnor
mally bad ruling, repeated withdrawals
of phosphate land, coal lands, and the
like, very much to the disadvantage of
the 8ta;e It is certainly up to OUT

A dispatch from Paris states that
an agreement has been reached by the
powers in interest on ihe $300,000,000
loan to China, subject to the ratifica
tion of the respective nations repre
sented, w., the United States, (ireat
Britain, Prance, Germany Russia, and
Japan. There is also vet to be framed
the specifb and direct contract with
( hirra on this question. The dispatch
indicates thai the full agreement m all
its details will be immediately drawn
up. so that there can be but little
doubi of the favorable iio- of the ne
gotiations for the loan, and of the ac
tual transfer of the money.
The project of negotiating this loan
has dragged along for a good while
K'rcn before Yupm Shi Kai accepted the
Presidency of China, it was supposed
that, the negotiation had beeu COmplot
ed; but the Chinese finance minister
proved treacherous would not agree
that the powers should have, anything
to say about the expenditure of the
mnnc, his idea, being t bat tbe whole
disposal of it should bo left to the
Chinese themselves, with their disposi
tiou to graft Bud plunder. The pow
ers, however, were insistent that the
money, if lent at aH, should be lent in
such a way that the moDey would be
actually expended for the purposes for
which it was borrowed, and not. stolen
by official thieves. The solicitude on
this point arises from two causes; first,
that the Chinese revenues are pretty
well absorbed already by current ex
actions, and lo add the large amount of
interest money would be a serious tsx
upon the Chinese people, which they
might, be indisposed to pay if the mon
ey were not actuall) expended for their
benefit; and second, the desirability o.
seeing that this money is actually and
beneficiallv expended so that the proof
of it could be brought forward at any
time when the farts were, challenged.
Upon the refusal of Inn Chinese
finance minister to agree to this for
eign guarantee of honest' expenditure,
the negotiations fell through, and a
new start had to be made In this new
start the question was raised as to
the actual sources of supply of the
money. The original plan wa8 that ihe
United States, Great Britain, German v,
and France wore each to furnish $7",
000,000 of the $300,000,000 desired It
was stipulated further that each coun
try must furnish the money itself, and
must not. borrow in order to get its
quota. Any nation not having the
(75,000,000 to put into tbe loaning pool
was to forfeit so mm h of its portion
in Ihe loan as it fell short of that
amount, and the excess was to be ta
ken by the other powers.
This agreement, however, ignored
both Russia and Japan, and necessarily
so, siuce neither under that plan could
furniah its part of the money toquircd.
Both Russia and Japan wanted t" par
ticipate in the loan, bu.t in order to do
so would have first to borrow the mon
cy thev would furniah. Tins being
barred in the originul plan, the nego
tiations came to a halt. Then began
further negotiations on the bas,is c.t
omitting tbo proposition that each
couutry must furnish from its own
mooev its quota of the loan, and in
iiei: of it there came in the adjustment
ol the special claims of Russia and .la
pan in Manchuria and Mongolia. The
problem then was to so adjust matters
that Russia and Japan might partici
pate in the lonn bv borrowing tbe mon
e or part of it for their share, and yet
to make sure that the interests of the
four stronger nations should be held in
tact, h is probable, therefore, that
the final agreement on the loan will
include the settlement of the Manchu
rinn and Mongolian questions, and will
also include on the part of China the
concession that the money must be ex
pended under the direction of foreign
financial experts. It is foreshadowed
that the agreement on this point will
include the proposition that the expen
ditures are 10 be made through the
'iiHtoms commission founded bv ir
Robert Hurt, but under the control of
Europeans representing the loaning
China has been badly in need of this
money, to pay 1 h army and lo put ihe
new no vera men 1 on a firm finaio-ial
footing. Now that the negotiations are
Bearing s harmonious conclusion, it is
likely thai the whole Chinese question,
including the territorial integrity of
China, the BtStUS of the provinces, the
open door, and the virtual control of
1 hd finances by foreign expert agents
will ail be settled on an amicable and
lasting basis.
When tiie question of abolishing tbe
ommerce Court was before tiie Senate,
Mr Sutherland Of this Stale iusistcd
thai it was unconstitutional to abolish
thai court because of the constitutional
provision that judges "shall bold their
office during good behavior, ' The point
was SUCh a very ihin one that the rn
ale paid no attention to it whatever,
and justly, so, because that constitu
tional provision is inapplicable to the
The const it nt ion establishes only the
Supreme Court, as B .judicial tribunal;
but it authorizes Congress to provide
for such inferior courts as it mav see
fit from time to time. These courts
established bv Congress aie subject to
the w'ill of Congress, since what one ses
sion or one Congress mav do with re
spect to establishing a court, another
Congress can undo; il can change,
amend, or abolish. This is a plain prin
ciple of parliarnentarv practice and pro
cedure No Congress can bind a suc
ceeding Congress by undertaking to
establish under that constitutional
1 lau-e u-eless courts or lo provide for a
greater number of judges than are
needed It is a plain matter of routine,
acknowledged everywhere, that what
one Ongress an do another Congress
can undo; there is no restriction of this
power. To say that because of the con
stitutional provision that judges shall
hold their office during good behavior,
therefore a court or n system of courts
established by one '.'ongress must neces
sarily be continued hv succeeding (on
grasses, is to violate all rules of legis
lation and practical government. To
contend for this is to assert that ('on
cress, merelv in order to keep judges
in office, must continue a court, which it
holds to be useless and perhaps even ob
structive and objectionable. ''ongress
iinquesf lonablv has the power to abol
ish any court that it establishes, and the
tenure of nffio of judges of such court
no longer applies.
But aside from this plain proposition
of practical government operation, the
abolition of the Commerce Court does
not necessarily interfere with the of
fice and salarv of the nidge of that
court; for that court was made up bv
the assignment to it of judges from
among the circuit or district judges of
fhe T'nited States, to Serve on that, de
tail for a period of five rears. This de
tail having been vacated by Cue aboli
tion of the court, these judges remain
simply circuit or district judges of the
United State?, ;md subject lo assign
ment to duty ar- such. There is no more
reason for raising the constitutional
question in this case than there would
be for raising it in the case of the Fed
"ral District Judge of Utah, for in
stance, if he were called to preside over
B district or circuit court in 8t. Louis,
St. Paul, Indianapolis, or San 1'ian
ci6co. At the expiration of his assigned
service in those places, he would re
turn to his position as Federal District
.fudge for the district of Utah. This
is so plain a case that it is astonishing
that anv one should raise a constitu
tional question in the premises. Then
will be ample employment on the eir
ouit or district bench for those judges,
constantly. There is always need of
help in one district or circuit court or I
another, and the employment of these
judges in their appropriate capacity can
be regular and constant.
No other Senator ventured to support
the opinion of Senator Sutherland in
this matter. The case is BO absolutely
clear against his frivolous point that it
is astonishing that oven he should have
attempted to raise such a witless issue.
The income tax amendment is like
ly to be the sixteenth amendment of
the Constitution. There are forty
eight States now in Ihe L nion. It re
quires, therefore, the ratification of
thirty-six to make the amendment part
of the Constitution. Arizona was the
thirty-second State to ratify the amend- -ment,
Minnesota is the thirty-third, a
At the regulnr bienninl session of the
legislature of Minnesota last year, the
lower house passed a ratifying resolu
tion, but the Senate failed to act upon
it. The Governor, however, called an
extra session of the legiblature to pass
reapportionment and direct primary
laws, and the Senate took the oppor
tunity to concur with the House in rat
ifying tho amendment, the Seuate vote
being forty nine to five.
Hut three more States are needed,
theiefore, to ratifv the amendment.
The lower house of the Massachusetts
legislature has twice ratified it, but
the upper house has refused, The prob
ability 1 s that the next Massachuseti s
legislature will ratify the amendment
Other States that can reasonably be
expected to ratifv are Utah, Florida,
Wyoming, West Virginia, and Pennsvl
vania. Utah ought to have ratified at
the last session of our legislature, be
cause its members were elected on a
platform specifically pledging its rat
ification There is no reason to doubt
but that Wyoming and West Virginia,
will ratify at the next session of their i
legislatures. These two States, with
Utah, will complete the liet, and with
both parties in 1'tah pledged in t h i 1
platforms to ratification, there ought
not to be anv doubt whatever about
the affirmative action of tiii State.
