Saturday, October 4, 1913. Hj Ono mouth from today is election day in and for this city. And how littlo B lias boon actually done about it! It is claimed that, thirty pastors in Pittsburgh have been let out during B the last year because of their socialis- tie opinions. Moro martyrdom! Secretary Bryan says that President Wilson has a mind of las own. But isn't that a speech of courtesy which tiie Secretary is expected to spoak? .Mexico is producing so ramiy candi- dales for the Presidency that the cry of fraud at the election is certain to be raised. And thus President Wilson can do as he likes. The Democratic partisan tariff bill has been passed and signed. Argument and demonstration are alike useless. Wo may bo permitted to hope' for the best while dreading the worst. The contentions at Seattle appear to ; lie quite as much between the judges as upon the main point involved. It is an unseemly performance, well cal eulatcd to bring our whole judicial sysr teiii into contempt. Wouldn't it be a good idea for Presi W dent Wilson .to send a special comniia- sion down to Mexico to supcrviso the Presidential, election there on October B -Gth, so that he would feel confident Ww that a fair election had been held? B A Baltimore scientist has returned B. from iforeign parts with eighty billion B germs, which he will study by cultural B mothcnls. It is to be hoped that he B won't let any of thorn escape, as that B other scientist did the gypsy moths in B Massachusetts. B Senator Lane of Oregon objects to legislation and the setting :isidc of the fl laws by the executive departments. It B is well lo have a voice of power raised in this behalf. The people of sill this W western country have been tired of that B for many years. B And now it is beginning to be spoken of as a ''revenue tariff." This while B all the time its friends admit that it won't produco enough revenue to sup port the government by some $60,000,- LM 000 to $70,000,000, so that they have B to have an income tax to eke out I Former President Taffc recently went to Washington to lobby (not insidious B ly) for a commodious marble postoflice for 2sTew Haven. And he won. Cer H1 tainly New Haven should be eorre- B spondingly gratoi'ul for this successful B activity of her most illustrious citizen, Wt A third Balkan war threatens, is the report. Only the third? It seems as B though thoro have been so many, of B these wars that, one might be pardoned B - for losing count. Besides, there seems that such determination to light, that B "a third war" may prove to bo only the begiuning of a now "thirty years' B war. ' 1 The idea of frying to get up a panic B on the imagined unsafety of the heating apparatus in the public schools B of this city is reprehensible in the high- B est degree. No more impeachable and B utterly indefensible position could tho B city board of education bo found in than for it to bo guilty of opening the schools with this or any other part of B the school houses in a dangerous con- dition. It is incrcdiblo to think of fl such a thing. Portland Oregoniau: "Tho woman suffragists are now concentrating their B efforts upon Pennsylvania. Beginning Hj October G, they will carry out a scries of demonstrations in Philadelphia and thence extend their efforts over the B State. In IsTow York and Pennsylvania, B the two States where self -government B has been a conspicuous failure, woman suffrage has up to this time made the least progress. The truth of tho mnt j tcr is that all the elements of civilian- J tion hang together and advancement in B one means advancement in all." LWt This Democratic Congress is cn- croaehing on the civil service laws in every placo when it is thought that too much of a row will not be mado about it. Tim Campbell onco put the ingenious question lo President devo land, "Aw, Mr. President, what's tho B constitution between fricnds7" when . tho President had objected to Carnp- bell's proposition as unconstitutional. B So now as to tho civil service laws, tho Democratic legislative lend era .ana President Wilson both appear B to bo answering the question, "What's B civil service legislation among us parti- sans?" with a decided "Nothing whatovor!" DR. McNIEOE IS DEAD. Tho announcement of the death of Dr. 11, G. McNieco of this city will spread a wave of sorrow over all. this intennountain country, whore ho was so well known and so wnrmly loved. Dr. McNieco was ono of the oldest Christian ministers in this region. He camo here thirty-six years ago, and at onco sot a standard of loj'alty, of sound ideas, of virtuous living and of con sistent moral thought and conduct, al ways of inestimable value to all of this community. For a eood many years past his heart has been bound up in the establishment of Westminster College, and moro re cently his great anxiety has been to got a proper man for the presidency of that college, to succeed himself, as ho felt that ho was growing in years and losiug his strength for sustained work. On Thursday night the efforts of tho trustees to find a suitable man, strong in every quality, to take tho presidency of the collogo, mot with success in the acceptance of Dr. Bhoard of Waterloo, Iowa, who will take tho position. When Dr. McNiece was apprised of this, lie thanked God, and called upon those prosent to kneol in a prayer of thank fulness. Ho oxprossed tho hopo that ho might livo long enough to welcome Dr. Bheard and see him begin his great educational work at the college, which is located well out on' the southeastern bench of this city. Dr. IMcNicco for a great man' years wu9 the pastor of tho '.First Presby terian Ohurch in this city, and as such was greatly honored and relied upon. He has been a prominent factor in all good work in this community for moro than a generation of time. Ho has al ways been staunch, always firm, al ways true. There has never been the slightest varying in his high standards of loyalty, of truthfulness, and of de votion to his work. Ho has gone to his reward. May God set the seal of his approval upon this man's noble soul. His work was great, his ambi tions high, tho light that ho boro has always shono clear and true. May the Lord soften the blow to his afflicted family. Whatever consolation tho kcon sympathy of such a wide cir cle of friends as Dr. McNiece had may do to. mitigate their grief, they niay surely count upon as theirs in full measure. NOT APPOINTING OADETS. The report comes from Washington that members of Congress aro not ap pointing their full quoto of cadetB to tho West Point Military Academy, and tlio question is asked why this neglect and whether the reason is tho desire for "universal peace" or "the high cost of living." Wo doubt very much whether either of theso questions goes to the root of tho neglect, for no mat ter how much desire there may bo in the heart of any momber of Congress for universal peace, he is not likely to lose on . that account any opportunity to oxcrcise his perquisite of making an appointment in this or any other position. While, as to tho high cost of living, that need not bother the cadet, because the government pays the bill, while his family would in most cases bo ablo to livo without his help. Wc believe the true reason for fail ure to appoint the full number of ca deU to West Point to which Congress men aro ontitljd, is because there is not a military career open to students of the West Point Military Academy commensurate with that open on all sides in civil life. The pay of cadets is small compared to that which grad uates of colleges on technical lines can easily command. When it is consid ered, also, that promotion in tho army is extremely slow, that man may serve, and do serve, until their hair is gray in times of pence and aro not advanced beyond tho rank of captain; while en gineers and scientific men of ability get quick recognition, and large pay, oven before they have attained middle life, the case is clear that tho allure ments of the military lifo fade and bo conic dim as compared with the attrac tions for young men in civic and pro fessional careers. Wc believe that tho lattor is tho real reason why the appointments to the military academy at West Point aro not sought as they have been hereto fore, and why tho attractions of a mili tary lifo aro regarded as inferior com pared with tho attractions of civic life in various pursuits, expert, professional, and of technical utility. A young man who is able to meet the examinations of West Point and to measuro up to the status of accomplishment therein taught and imparted, can by going to a technical school attain knowledge that will onablo him to pursue a careor that will bo infinitely moro profitable and more quickly fruitful of fame, money, and position than is possible in the military lino. The military profession in time of peace is by no means attractive as compared with tho callings of civil lifo. The work is hard, tho requirements for patience arc exacting, the discipline is often scvoro and in certain cases un just. The young man who goes into military lifo faces all theso difficulties and disabilities, and besides, is pro vented from taking his full part as a citizen and from exercising his liberty of criticising things that do not suit him, which are so fully enjoyed by the civilian. On nil accounts, therefore, it is not surprising that the military pro fession is neglected at thin time. Tho government itself neglects tho army; it refuses to put it upon a mili tary basis, and it scorns tho advice of military experts, holding that any sort of a political blatherskite is ablo to deal with tho army and to say what its needs arc belter than tho best army .exports aro ablo lo do. At any rate. tho blathorakito is listoncd tg, and the military expert is not. It is quite different in civil life, where a mnn attains ominouce in his profession or pursuit; thou ovory ono is willing lo accord him tho highest consideration. In tho military profession it is quito tho reverse. In fact, when a military man undertakes lo explain to Congress or lo the public our mili tary confusion and tho need of getting tho army on a military basis, ho is scorned as ono who is undertaking to ndvanco his own interest and propa gate his own professional views as against the civil (in fact political) viows of those who know nothiug about tho matter, but by reason of their po litical support and popular standing cannot be gainsaid, and whoso views prevail oven though they aro absolute ly irrelevant to tho case and ruinous to tho arm'. It is, in fact, a very serious question in tho minds of conscientious military exports whether it is worth while to have an army at all at such cost as the army is to the country and have it so mismanaged as it has been, so utterly futile for all military purposes as it actually is by reason of tho scandalous method in which it is disjointed, dis persed and deprived of all actual con centration and training, tho very things which would tend to mnko a real army of our military forco in place of tho mere fragmentary impotence which wo actually have. As it is, wo havo mere scraps of troops in place of the offoct ivo army that wc ought to have. So, why should an ambitious 3roung man consider an army career desirable for himself? ROOSEVELT'S EXPLANATION. Colonel Eoosovelt continues to insist that tho only way open for harmony between his personal Progressivo party and tho Republican party, is for the Republicans all to come into his camp in unconditional surrender, submit to his yoke, and subscribe lo tho policies ho stands for, without any equivoca tion, demur, or mental reservation. It has always been a puzzle, however, to establish what it is in the way of pol icies that Colonel Roosovolt stands for. The Progressive platform of last year was so windy, so absolutely vague and practically meaningless, that nothing could bo gathered from it; save only that State judges were to bo rocalled and their opinions overruled by tho people at. popular elections. But tho idea of making this sort of assault upon tho State courts a National prop osition is absolutely illogical. There is no war whereby the Nation could undertako to discipline tho State courts, either as proposed or in any other way. This central idea, of the Roosevelt platform is, therefore, abso lutely impossiblo as oven promising any practical results. Tho Colonel has an article in the cur rent number of the Century Magazine, which is fully and firmly protected by copyright, and express notice is given that any re-publication, oither in whole or in part, is expressly prohib ited. It is not prohibited, howover, to comment generally upon it, and it must bo admitted that his paper is quite as indefinite, vague, and impossiblo as his previous utterances in behalf of him self politically and of tho party which ho has formed. This article, liko much of Colonel Roosevelt's former outgiv ings, is expressly and indeed vindic tively hostile to tho courts. It notes that thoro is no way to reverse, disci pline or set aside court judgments, thorefore ho wants to provido such means, and his idea is that it can best bo dono by popular vote. Students of American institutions know that Thomas Jefferson was fierce ly opposed to the Federal constitution, and that he urged tho possible tyranny of the courts, in that no means are provided in the constitution to curb their possible usurpations of power or to break tho force of any obnoxious decisions or rulings which they might make, as ono great dofect in tho con stitution, and as tho reason why it should not be ratified by Virginia. It is a dofect in our institutions that has always boon recognized, but no one has ever heretofore proposod that the pop ular Yote ought to ovorrulo or set aside the decisions of tho courts. Besides, Roosevelt's idea fails to meet Mr. Jef ferson's view, in that Jefferson's ob jection applied to tho Federal courts, whereas Roosovelt's oxpressly applies to tho Stato courts. Tho Colonel does not go to tho impossible oxtromo of suggesting that decisions of tho Fed eral courts and especially of tho U. S. Supromo Court, should bo overridden by the popular voto of tho Nation. So his nostrum and his criticism of the State courts has nothing to do with Na tional affairs and has no, placo in the National political arena. Ho seems to recognize this instinctively, but to mako up for such recognition by vin dictive ferocity in his comment. Just now Colonol Roosovelt is on gaged politically in a campaign in be half of Governor Sulzor in Now York, and against Murphy, who is Tam many's boss. He exhibits a great ad mration for John Purroy Mitchcl, the fusion candidate for Mayor of New York. Tho fact that Mi'tchol is also indorsed by President Wilson seems to encourage Roosevelt and to mako him understand that in supporting Mitchcl ho is likely to bo on tho winning side, and, of all things upon earth, Colonel Roosovelt likes to bo upon the winning side. H is plain to see from Colonol Roose volt's political movomonts just now, that ho is much moro inclined to side with tho Democrats than with tho Re publicans. Ho was not willing to al low his party associates to support a fusion candidalo for Mayor of Now York if that fusion candidalo should be j a Republican; but he is quite willing to support a Democrat as fusion candi date for Mayor of Greater New York, and lo urgo bin followers to join in that support. Ho is willine to givo Governor Sulzor a clean bill of hoalth, not bocauso Sulzor is innocont, but be cause ho hates Murphy moro than ho hates Sulzor, and charges Murphy with Sulzor 'b impeachment. So that his po litical procoduro in this is shown to be impulsivo rathor thau on principle, and personal rathor than on tho merits of the caso involved; and, inasmuch as Colonel Roosevelt's political activities havo quito commonly taken precisely that course, it is a clear case that he is a dangerous man to follow. GROSSING BY LAPS. In view of tho splendid triumphs of aviation, and moro particularly reckon ing from tho great flight of Roland G. Garros, who flew across tho Medi terranean, achieving nearly 600 miles in a singlo flight, tho possibility of fly ing across tho Atlantic hns again como up for discussion. -M. Garros himself is quoted as saying that in timo tho Atlantic will be crossed in stages not much longer than his flight across tho Mediterranean. Tho programmo sug gostod by him is to start from tho northwost coast of Sootland, fly to Iceland, thonco to Newfoundland, which, in fact, 'would finish the flight and from which tho aviator could easily pass to tho mainland of America, but would ibo a tedious, long flight. It is probablo, howovor, that this .flight would havo to bo ibroken by auothor stop at the south of Grconland, and then in placo of flying to Newfound land, tho aviator would land on tho Labrndor coast, and on getting thoro ho would also havo crossed tho Atlantic and would be in immediate air-flight communication with tho main chanucls of transportation in this country. An aviator might, in fact, 3tart oither from tho west coast of Norwaj' or from the northwest coast of Scotland and bo on practically the sanio advantageous torms. Tho first flight of courso would bo to Icoland, thonco the passage to Greenland would bo even shorter than tho first flight. From Groonlnnd to Labrndor would bo the longest lap of tho flight) but this would not be for biddingly longer than tho flight that M. Garros ha3 already achieved in crossing tho Mediterranean, At lonst, it is quito conceivable that the addi tional distance included in this lap would (bo possiblo to achiovo in tho greater advancement of tho science of aeronautics a fow years hence. Still, a flight like that would not be of any particular advantage, since it would be so broken, and since it would bo possiblo only in certain sea sons of tho year. Anothor possibility in crossing tho Atlantic might bo from tho west coast of Africa in tho vicinity of Capo Verde, thenco to tho most westerly of tho Capo Verdo Islands, then to tho pro truding coast of South America in tho vicinity of Cape St. Roquo. Tho trade winds would help in that flight, and if achieved it would bo a flight that would bo possiblo at all seasons of the year. In view of tho triumphs of tho Zep pelin dirigible balloons, and in view of the magnificent flights mado by M. Garros and other .FYonohmou in their monoplanes, wc think it quito reason able to indulgo in tho hopo that a way will bo ifound to fly across tho Atlantic before many yearn. THE TROUBLE IN TENNESSEE. The troublo in Tonnessec appears to bo entirely over the question of en forcing tho prohibitory law. They have a prohibitory law in that Stato that has so many holes in it that the peo ple find no difficulty in getting liquor, oven in tho dryest localities. Under that law tho liquor traffic goes on in a lively manner, the only real effect boing to mako it difficult for negroes to got liquor unless the white men help them got it. Govomor Ben W. Hooper, of that State, urged upon tho regular session of the legislature which mot last win tor, that the law should bo strength ened and tho holes filled up. Tho legis lature wrangled month after month, a good many of tho members fled the State and left the legislative body without a quorum so that no business could bo dono. Adjournment was final ly had last month, after a fruitless ses sion of somothing liko half a year. Tho regular legislation suffered from tho wrangling and the absentees. Governor Hooper promptly called an oxtra ses- s.on when tho adjournment of A tfl ular sonsion was finally takeaB W special session was jUab as unW j tho regular session had boon. , could bo done, and last wook UiB luturc adjourned again, leavinaB' thing practically ns boforo.
