The South and Mr. Bryaa.
No significance attaches to the failure of
the Pennsylvania democrats in state con
vention yesterday to refer to Mr. Bryan
and his Issues. The state Is overwhelming
ly republican on national questions, and
local matters are vital this year beyond the
record of any previous year in the history
of the commonwealth. Affairs have come
to such a pass. Indeed, as to make It of the
highest moment that politics for this cam
paign be laid aside, and an effort made to
rescue the people's every-day interests from
the clutches of those who have shown
themselves in every way unworthy of con
trol. In such circumstances Mr. Bryan
and his platform were easily Ignored.
The situation was different at Norfolk.
Virginia has been in the democratic col
umn for many years, and promises, for
awhile at least, to remain there. She sup
ported Mr. Bryan in both of his races for
the presidency, and Senator Daniel pre
sided over the Chicago convention In 1*96.
A slight effort on his part might have re
sulted in making him Mr. Bryan's running
mate last year. He has, moreover, always
been an aggressive advocate of the free
coinage of silver. Why then should not
Virginia again pay her respects to Mr.
Bryan and his policies? She did not. The
platform refers to him by name only in a
sounding generality, while the chairman of
the convention consigned free silver to the
tomb never to rise again. He conceded
that one resurrection had taken place, but
declared that a second was Impossible.
And so Virginia joins Ohio and Maryland
In the movement looking to a new demo
cratic leader and a new national battle cry.
rMs movement is definite now, and under
the direction of a number of very able men.
The south, even more than the west, has
given Mr. Bryan his strength. A little sen
timental In politics, she must have a sweet
heart; and while her favor lasts it is in
tense. Her taste is somewhat eccentric.
Greeley, Tilden, Hancock. Cleveland and
Brjan compose a list which the most ac
complished of coquettes might despair of
duplicating. A grumpy Journalist, long her
avowed enemy, a dry old lawyer, a brilliant
and handsome soldier, a stolid and unre
sponsive local politician, and lastly a dash
ing and eloquent young orator. But her
ardor for Mr. Bryan is cooling, and pres
ently she may be as indifferent towards
him as she grew to be towards his very
opposite, Mr. Tilden.
This then is Mr. Bryan's peril. If the
south gives him the mitten his case will be
hopeless. And the south sighs for success.
She likes fine things, and It takes money
to buy them.
?? a ? ?
The Strike.
There is no mistaking the fact that the
steel strike has gained strength. The
latest reports indicate that the leaders of
the Amalgamated are jubilant over the
prospects and suggest that the early dis
appointments have been off-set by recent
successes. The action of the Joliet work
ers to strike, despite the example set by
the Chicago and Milwaukee employes, has
stimulated the strikers of the eastern cen
ters, and this is unmistakably a Shaffer
day in the course of the disturbance. There
appear to be no gains for the manufac
turers to balance the Joliet accession to
the strikers' ranks. The trust continues to
hold its own in the Carnegie plants.
The most substantial and potential fac
tor of the situation may yet prove to be
the conservative business sentiment against
a prolongation of the trouble, which The
Star's staff correspondent reports to be in
creasingly at work to effect a settlement.
This situation reveals the Intimate rela
tionship and mutual dependence of the
various industries of tho country and
affords hope that both labor and capital
will, in their times of greatest stress, find
themselves bound to peace by ties which
they cannot break.
Washington is always more or less inter
ested in the political affairs of its neighbor,
Virginia, but this year it has reason for
an Intimate concern In the campaign about
to open. For a young man who is closely
idt-ntifled with the business interests of the
capital has been given second place on
the democratic state ticket. Mr. Joseph
Willard, thus honored by his party In his
state, has identified himself closely with
both the old commonwealth and with the
capital city. Asldo from partisan preju
dices his business associates and friends in
Washington, who observed his political rise
with pleasure, will wish him success in his
new fi-?ld, which affords so many opportu
nities for even further political develop
ment.
The sultan of Jolo, despite his profes
sions In favor of civilization. Is a -little
slow about taking advantage of the di
vorce facilities offered by this country.
It is admitted by some experts that the
Sr.amrock looks as if K had a chance of
taking the cup. But appearanoes are de
ceitful.
Preserve the Old Shlpa.
For a number of years It has been the
policy of the naval authorities, acting un
der restrictive statutes regulating the per
centage of repair cost, to preserve as few
as possible of the relics of the old navy,
selling them to Junk dealers from time to
time or breaking them up directly at the
naval stations where they have been
berthed. A few of them have found a ref
uge through assignment as training ships
for the naval mtlitia. while a few more
have done service as receiving ships. But
scores of vessels Identified with the naval
history of the country have been sacri
ficed to the demand for wharf and basin
room and to the questionable policy of
turning them Into money at paltry rates.
The latest sacrifice is of the frigate Min
nesota. which was built In this city In 1853
and served through the civil war. She has
of late been used as a barracks for the
Massachusetts naval militia. In the Brook
lyn yard the Vermont, another of the old
wooden sailing vessels of an obsolete type,
is awaiting final decision, having been re
lieved from service as a receiving ship.
This policy, if continued indefinitely, will
result In the destruction of many relics
which have a distinct value as object les
sons. Some of the ships which have been
destroyed, notably the old-type monitors.
Immediate successors of Ericsson's revolu
tionary creation, cannot today be replaced,
save by direct appropriation for the* con
struction of these large-sized models. It is
unlikely thai Congress would ever consent
to grant the large sums necessary for such
a purpose.
Washington has often pleaded for the
pressoce here of a typical ship of the old
style, suck as the frigate Constitution,
which now lies Inappropriately at Boston.
It now makes another bid. not only for one
? such vessel, but for as complete an assort
ment as possible. There Is A prospect that
the Eastern branch will some day be re
claimed from the mud and that the naval
establishment on Its banks will be given a
decent water front. Indeed, If the "Thames
valley" plan suggested by the park com
mission In London should be carried Into 1
effect there will be reason to expect that
a basin of generous dimensions will be
provided at the navy yard.
"W hat could be more conducive to a pa
triotic interest In the new navy than the
assemblage in such a basin of relics of the
old? Lying there at anchor, or tied to
wharves, these ships could float Indefinite
ly. without interfering with the prac
tical operations of the hustling present,
greatly to the enlightenment and Inter
est of thousands of tourists. Half a dozen
of the old sailing ships representative of
the wars of 1812 and of the rebellion would
cause the average American from the in
land states to appreciate more keenly tOan
ever the significance and the value of mod
em naval development. The occasional
presence of a Cruiser of the latest type or
of a battle ship would afford an instructive
contrast.
The people take comparatively little In
terest today in these old vessels because
they are scattered. In many cases being
dismantled and housed to serve as bar
racks. They have been robbed of their
characteristic features. They have In
some cases been ignored by the public as
relics and considered only as obstacles to
navigation. This is in marked contrast
with the treatment the English have ac
corded to their famous monarchs of the
sea. notably the Victory, Nelson's flagBhip
at Trafalgar, which still floats in Ports
mouth harbor, full-rigged and maintained
in perfect condition as an inspiration to the
youth of today. There Is Just as fine an op
portunity in this country to create here a
floating naval museum which will stir the
blood and preserve for all time the symbols
of the American sea power.

Ex-Prenldents and the Senate.
A Mr. Charles Carroll Bonney has con
tributed to a Chicago publication an arti
cle on- the well-worn subject of what
should be done with our ex-Presidents.
His proposition is that they be made hon
orary life members of the United States
Senate, but without the right to vote.
Is Mr. Bonney actuated by unfriendly
motives In this matter? Is he trying to get
even with anybody? Does he not know that
neither the ex-Presidents nor the Senate
proper would be benefited by such an ar
rangement? Fancy the feelings of an ex
President representing everybody and
therefore nobody In the most august legis
lative body In the world, and expected only
to look and talk like a sage! Fancy the in
fluence that he would be likely to exert
simply by taking the floor and delivering
owlish observations on pending bills and
resolutions! Fancy a senator without pat
ronage or a vote making an agreeable place
for himself In a body where an exchange of
favors as well as of views is a means of
public usefulness!
The feelings of the everyday senator
would likewise be far from agreeable. Con
fronted dally by these associates accredited
by the country with superior wisdom and
merit, he would sigh for the old order,
when every fellow was on an equality and
there were no especial founts of knowledge
to be tapped. Though expected to listen
whenever a life member rose, and to be
profoundly Impressed with the outgiving,
he would be much more likely to seek the
cloak room and adhere to the views he
had already formed on the subject under
discussion. A sage In Congress without a
designated constituency would be like a
patriot without a country?a little too In
definite for practical purposes. ?
It Is but fair to the ex-Presidents to say
that they have given no provocation for the
frequent discussions of this subject. They
have set up no claim to recognition on the
strength of what they had acquired In of
fice. They nave not intimated that the
country was losing anything by their ab
sence from the public service. And with
all deference to the splendid records some
of them made while in the White House, It
may be said that the country has never
lost In this way. The country la too rich In
talent to make the disappearance of any
man from Its council boards of overshadow
ing importance. Life senators, with the
whole country for a constituency, would
not fit Into the American order of things.
Cre?ce?i and Tbe Abbot.
The long-expected race between the two
great trotters, The Abbot and Cresceus,
was a disappointment, even though It pro
duced a new record. The Abbot's unfor
tunate break in the second heat robbed the
contest of interest beyond the wonderful
going of Cresceus, and oonvlnced many of
the thousands who witnessed the contest
that The Abbot Is not now to be regarded
as a possible rival for Cresceus' record
honors. The defeated horse may recover
later from the illness which has cut him
out of the year's work, and it is to be
hoped that another season will flnd him
able to do his best, to stimulate the Inter
est of breeders and racers in their efforts
to reach the two-minute mark. Cresceus
came within a second of his own wonderful
record mile of 2.02% In the first heat, on a
track which many considered at least one
second slow. By this work he established
a new record for a mile heat in a race, and
by his subsequent trotting made new rec
ords for two consecutive and for three con
secutive mile heats In a race. The general
public Is not keenly Interested In such rec
ords, however, the chief concern being for
the attempt to lower the fastest absolute
time over a mile course by a trotter. Even
with the disappointing features of the sec
ond heat and the disqualification of The
Abbot It remained a wonderfully Interest
ing event, for two such trotters have never
before been matched against each other.

^ e ?
Chinese la the Philippines.
One of the serious questions to be con
sidered by this government in connection
with the administration of Philippine af
fairs relates to the labor problem. Involv
ing the status of the Chinese. At present
Chinamen are re-entering the islands in
considerable numbers after absence, tak
ing advantage of the permission to return
which was given to departing celestials.
As will be seen from the quotations printed
today from the annual reports of General
MacArthur and others, it is urgently rec
ommended by the army officers on duty In
? the islands that this privilege be checked
in a few months, and that the United
States formally adopt a policy of rigid ex
clusion for the archipelago, as was done In
the case of the mainland. The Chines*
?
problem, as It affects the Philippines, was
discussed at length in the course of The
Star's- editorial correspondence from the
eastern Islands last year; and, on the basis
of conditions in other localities, which af
forded Instructive examples of both what
to do and what to avoid, this same course
was urged in behalf of native activity and
progress. Attention was directed to Java
as affording a suggestion in the treatment
of the Chinese. In that island the govern
ment permits immigration to a limited ex
tent, holding the matter, however, strictly
In hand at all times, and excluding at will
whenever the labor market is in danger of
disturbance. Thus the Industrial needs of
the colony are met and the natives are
encouraged to labor, whereas in those colo
nies of other governments where Chinese
are permitted to land freely, the tendency
of this inflow of cheap labor is to discour
age the native and to confirm him In his
naturally slothful habits. There is danger
that Chinese immigration, if unchecked,
may choke the industrial and agricultural
activities of the Filipinos. The clamor for
unrestricted immigration arises, as Is now
clearly shown In these army reports, from
selfishly Interested classes of "employers,
who prefer Immediate profits by.the hiring
of cheap labor to the ultimate prosperity of
the archipelago. The problem is now well
in hand for the immediate future, as a re
sult of administrative decrees and prac
tices. This policy, to be placed beyond the
Chance of reversal under pressure, should
be given the force of law, through specific
congressional action, either in connection
with the possible re-enactment of the
Gerry Chinese exclusion law or independ
ently of any legislation relating to the
mainland.
The will of an eccentric Minnesota man
directed that his money be burned. This
presents a question for the economists.
If gold is the basis of currency, is it pos
sible to burn money? Would he not simply
destroy the evidences of his claim to money
and leave the real value in the hands of
people who have no right to it? This is a
question which may claim the attention of
Mr. Bryan during the ample leisure which
his political associates seem inclined to
leave him.

Preoccupation.
"Why do you speak so slightingly of that
eminent scientist?"
"I didn't mean to speak slightingly of
him," answered -the young man with the
striped shirt frpnt. "But It does seem pe
culiar to me that a man who knows just
when the next comet will arrive and just
how far it Is to the moon should be so ut

of when it's time for dinner or what train
to take to get to the nearest town."
A Notable Discovery.
"My wife is a very remarkable woman,"
said Mr. Meekton.
"She has a great deal of originality."
"Indeed she has. She has taken up the

Far less elegant than plain.

But, prythee say, what would we do
If there were none at all?
What would we do for sunshine
To ripen fruit and grain?
If it were not for weather
What would we do for rain?
So let us all be patient.
As the mercury we scan.
The weather has Its fallings.
But it does the best it can.
Mexico's Silver Problem.
From the Mexican Herald.
Here in Mexico we have, with all the
mines, an inadequate supply of silver coin.
When silver rises the money urgently re
quired by the country's growing business
is exported, and then comes a tight money
market, not justified by the crops or the
state of trade, internal or foreign. Silver,
as It Is at present, Is for Mexico not a sat
isfactory money. There being no agreed-on
International ratio, the white metal Is sub
ject to continual fluctuations, so that no
importing merchant, no banker, knows on
what to calculate. It Is the lack of a
world-wide agreement regarding the value
of silver which makes it so very unde
sirable for a country like Mexico, expand
ing in every department of her Industry
and commerce.

The "Eddy"
Refrigerator
SAVES THE ICE. "
The Refrigerator that con
sumes the least possible
amount of ice is cheapest in
the end. That's why an "Eddy"
?? is the most economical. Heat
* can't get in an "Eddy"?cold
can't get out. All the ice goes
to cool food and water. "Ed
dy" soon pays for itself in the
ice and food it saves.
