A* a Wewa and Advertising Mt'dluni It lian no competitor.

The Crumpacker Resolution. That the Crumpacker resolution is not to b.j mated l?y the opposition on its merits is plain enough The whole effort is to draw at ti nt ion from the resolution and the con dition of things to which it refers and con jr.re up .i horror for campaign purposes. As ev.d? nee of this the strongest writer for the d? mocratic press. Mr. Henry Watterson. is now engaged in preparing his compatriots for their parts and snowing them how to held aloft and wave with effect the spook of his creation. It is a shrewd scheme, and one into which Mr. Watterson may be ex pected to put his whole soul. He loves a tight, and is a g od hand at planning one. Moreover he is intensely tirtd of support ing rr.< n anel issues wholly out of the range of his sympathies, and a new line would s. rve him well and bring out his heartier qualities. Any port in a storm. Hut e ven so strong and brilliant a man as Mr. Watterson is at a disadvantage in this work. liis spook is very far from b<-ing convincing. When he talks about a f< roe biil ami negro domination In connec tion with the Crumpacker resolution he in \ ites a smile. For, as a matter of the easiest demonstration, neither one of those things could possibly lollow the carrying out e>f that resolution even to the point of enforcing the Constitution of the United States and making representation in Con gress and the electoral college conform to it. The whole matter is comprehended in the simple propeisition that enfranchise ments that have taken place In any of tlic states be investigated and certified to by a committee of Congress for the information of the country. Now. as to what would follow, where is there the threat of overturning local gov ernments in the southern states? It Is not only not on the cards, but such a thing could not be done. The southern people, so far as their local affairs are concerned, will continue to conduct them in their own way. Capital, whether of northern or southern antecedents, will not be in the slightest de gree menaced e>r disturbed, and dividends w ill continue regular anel profitable. On the ejuestion of negro domination, the b >ot is on the other leg. If negro domina tion is a bad thing for a state, why should It be forced on the United States? That is what the south is attempting to do. The negroes in the south are denounced as unfit to vote for even a constable or a dog law. and are shorn of the jirivilege, but are counte'd t^ n man to Increase the south s representation in both the House of Rep resentatives and the electoral college, and are* thus ve>teel for national issues and for candidates for the presidency. If it is said that in the latter case their strength is utilized by men who know how to employ it. the answer is that in both 1NSH5 and li*X) this strength was employed in an effort to force free silver on the country and put >lr. Bryan into the White House, when, had it been exerted by the negroes them selves unde-r a leadership of their own choosing, it would have gone to swell the power of sound money and protection. There is no sectionalism in the Crum packer resolutie>n unless the states of some section have violated a constitutional pro vision and subjected themse-lves to a con stitutional penalty. And in this contingency it is these states whioh, by their own acts, inject sectionalism into the controversy, and not either the Constitution or the Crumpacker resolution of inquiry. The principle "No north, no south." which is Invoked against enforcement of the representation-reduction provision of the fourteenth amendment, logically de mands the equal and Impartial enforcement of the Constitution everywhere In the Union. It means that there shall be no discrimination in favor of and no superior right or privilege based on residence in either north or south. All shall share alike. No difference shall be recognized between the sections or between the states. Evidently this principle Is violated by a condition which, In defiance of the Con stitution. gives the white man In a few of the states several times the voting power in the House of Representatives and in the electoral college that Is possessed by the white or black man in all the other states. Excited resistance to a mere resolution of inquiry into the matter raises the rea sonable presumption that the vociferous protestants against Investigation are con cern<J In or profit by violations of the pro vision of the Constitution to which atten tion is called. Is there not a distinct comic cpera suggestion in the indignant and de nunciatory attitude of those who in con fessed violation of the Constitution exer cise an unjust and illegal excess of power In the electoral college' and the House at the expense and to the injury of all other Americans? Are the millions of Americans outside of a few states to submit Indefi nitely to this unconstitutional and Injurious discrimination against them in order that the beneficiaries thereof may not be Irri tated and that universal good feeling may prevail ? The way to remove sectionalism is to obliterate iilegal political sectional advan tages damaging to other sections. To in sure good feeling between the states, those which in violation of the Constitution are Injuring the other states by the exercise of an unlawful representative power in the national councils should be required to conform to the law. The remedy is not to call upon the aggrieved states to keep quiet about and to ignore the imposition. There will be no force bill, and no negro domination in the south. But it is not in the American nature or in human nature that the men and state-s of the west and north should permit the whites of a few states in the south to cast far weightier vote-s than they, man for man and state for state. In the electoral college and House, when the Constitution specifically provides the remedy against this injurious discrimination. The Filipinos must not be regarde*d as In a state of belligerence. They are merely Indulging in an aggravated case of disor derly c induct. ? e ? The Stitch in Time. The people of Washington are doubtless relieved to learn that the authorities have lately l?een systematically working to over haul and perfect the tire-prevention devices employed in the places of large resort. The Inspection, to which attention was called in The Star yesterday, has been in progress for several days, and is by no means calculated to arouse a fear that the officials apprehended a possible disaster. The best sort of government is that which takes precautions, and this is precisely what the tire department authorities are now doing. A close scrutiny of the con struction of the larger buildings of uie city, ?specially those which were erected some years ago, before the fire-proofing pro cesses were so highly developed as at pres ent, Is demanded In the public Interests, even though there may have been no large fires here of late to Jolt the public and the official conscience. The case of the Windsor Hotel Is well In point to show what might have been done there to prevent, or at least to diminish, the awful catastrophe which | occurred when that house took fire In broad i daylight. Considered fire proof when It was | built. It had become a fire trap. The cellu | lar walls and wooden floors permitted the ! almost instant spread of flames throughout the building. Tet the expenditure of a few thousand dollars in providing brick flre stops in the walls would have doubtless saved many lives and perhaps permitted the immediate quenching of the flames. The later Park Avenue Hotel fire in the same city was another instance of official and private reliance upon an antiquated con struction. legal when new, but dangerous under modern conditions. The Commission ers' representatives, now peering around for chances to improve the devices for life saving, should make a clean sweep and in clude in their recommendations for changes ! every possible item where there has been the least negligence or reliance upon good j luck in the past. The more thorough and ' undisciiminating this Investigation the safer will Washington become. ' Mr. Bryan in Bad Temper. Mr. Bryan Is losing his temper, and that I* a bad sign. He has recently been saying some severe things about David B. Hill, and now he has turned his attention to Mr. Cleveland. He doesn't like either man, but he has less occasion for disliking the former than the latter. Mr, Cleveland never manifested the slightest Interest in Mr. Bryan In either of the Nebraskan'.s races for the presidency. The probability H that he did not vote either in 1896 or In 1900. The platform was so repugnant to him that he made no effort to conceal hi3 disgust with the whole Bryanlte outfit and its purposes. It was different with Mr. Hill. Between 1896 and the time for holding the demo cratic national convention In 1900 Mr. Hill had come around to a desire to see Mr. Bryan win. It was plain enough that Mr. Bryan would be renominated, and Mr. Hill, in friendly fashion, concerned himself about the platform. He went to Lincoln for a conference, and advised Mr. Bryan about what would be necessary to attract favora ble attention In the east, and asked Mr. Bryan's assistance In an elTort to have the Kansas City convention consider the New York point of view. The request was de nied, Mr. Bryan again Ignored the east, and again went to defeat. After rejecting Mr. Hill's suggestion, salt could not have saved him. ? Now, however, Mr. Hill Is bracketed with Mr. Cleveland In Mr. Bryan's disfavor. Both men are declared to be nearer in their sym pathies and principles to the republican than to the democratic party, and with re gard to Mr. Cleveland Mr. Bryan challenges him to try for the democratic nomination In 1904 on a platform of his own writing. Says Mr. Bryan In his newspaper: "If Mr. Cleveland thinks that the demo cratic party Is ready to return to the mire into which he led and In which he left it, let him announce his candidacy on any plat form he is willing to write. He cannot se cure the delegation from a single state in the Union. If his modesty forbids his own candidacy, let him name a candidate who will agree to make his administration like Mr. Cleveland's second administration, and he will not have a delegation in the con vention. The party will never go back to the odious and odorous days of 1892-96." This is extremely cocky, and Mr. Bryan may be right. But suppose he is mistaken. Suppose Mr. Cleveland, or Mr. Hill, or some other man representing the anti Bryan view of public questions, is nomi nated in 1901. What will Mr. Bryan do? Support the ticket? Or bolt? Will he ad vise a Palmer and Buckner demonstration In* behnlf of silver? Shall the bolters of 1S96 become the regulars of 190i, and the regulars the bolters? That would make a campaign second in Interest to none ever conducted in this country, and contribute not only to the gayety, but to the hilarity of the nation. ??? The patient resignation shown by the rail roads whom the Interstate commerce com mission prohibits from cutting rates, is equaled only by the regret that will be ex perienced when it becomes necessary to tell a shipper that he will have to pay the full charge. J. Pierpont Morgan was served with a subpoena by a man who followed him Into his own art gallery. Sometimes it looks as If multi-millionaires have their annoyances the same as ordinary people. If the Philippines are put on a free silver basis Mr. Bryan may be In doubt as to whether he ought to keep on sympathizing with them or not. ? The United States steel trust, by buying iron from Germany, conveys to that coun try a tacit assurance of regard from a very influential element in America. ??? Some of the English will probably assert that the treatment of General Methuen by the Boers was contrary to all civilized ideas of hospitality. Colombia should not forget that it takes a pretty big country to carry a censorship scheme through without annoying compli cations. Of course there will be nothing in the river and harbor bill to dredge the mud out of the drinking water. 4 ?? It Is understood that Admiral Bob Evans has about learned to speak English once more. ? ? ? Having made a hit In this country Prince Henry might as well arrange for a few farewell tours. ??? New York's Transportation Troubles. While the dynamite explosion in the course of the rapid transit tunnel work in New York the other day was far more de structive. the latest tunnel accident Is the most significant and disturbing feature of the whole enterprise thus far developed. In consequence of a slide of rock into the tunnel excavation the front walls of a row of houses on Park avenue, adjacent to the line, collapsed and two of the dwellings were rendered uninhabitable. The imme diate result of the accident is that the resi dents along all the various lines of the tunnel construction are questioning their own degree of security from similar trou bles. If the popular faith In the safety of the underground construction Is shaken the project will become heavily handicapped. And if in final consequence this tunnel should never be duplicated, New York, which has already In contemplation built three or four such subways to relieve tae trewnerdinis congestion of traffic, will be in deed seriously confronted with the trans portation problem. It may be, of courset that the rock slide in this instance was wholly exceptional, and that there Is no likelihood of another such disturbance. Perhaps, too, the engi neers In charge of the work can give satis factory guarantees that when the tunnel work is finished and the arch walls of the subway are built there can be no further danger of settlement. The thrust of the rock and earth will then be downward, such as the arches can probably withstand from outside. But meanwhile the possibil ity of collapsing house foundations is cer tain to distress every resiaent of the miles of streets undermined by the tunnel. A restriction of the subway method of relieving the traffic would be a serious blow to the growth of New York. Already it would seem as though the metropolis had reached Its safe and economic limit of development. The narrow outlines of the island create conditions which exist in no other city in the cohntry, and call for ex- j cejltional methods. Yet New York has been slower than the average city in pro viding means of transportation. Boston Is now equipped with both subway and ele vated lines. There is scarce a city in the country so poorly furnished with means of crossing the adjacent rivers as New York is today. Almost daily tragedies are en acted at the entrance of the Brooklyn bridge as the frantic thousands seek access to the cars and the promenade. One other bridge is under way, but its completion cannot come for two or three years yet. Meanwhile New York is growing at a tremendous rate and its facilities are not keeping pace. Higher go the sky-scrapers and the concentration of business activity or. Manhattan Island becomes more and mere intense. The conservatism of trade and commerce and the professions prevents effective scattering. With a dozen or more bridges across each river, with elevated lines along every north and south thor oughfare, with two or three subways and with every surface car line electrically equipped, the big city might be able to move about comfortably and to spread itself more evenly over the available space. But this condition is very far removed from the facts and meanwhile anything which suggests a checking of the process of providing trans portation for the rushing throngs is dis quieting not only to New Yorkers, but to the millions of other Americans who are forced to visit the metropolis. Tom L. Johnson must remember that re publics are ungrateful. He will be sus pected of trying to put street car rides on the bargain counter in order to invite a rush-of business at the polls. ? < ? Secretary Root and General Miles may have their opinions of each other. But they are more guarded in their methods of expressing them than the senators from South Carolina. 1 Like some other performers Santos Du mont makes his reputation in Europe and then comes to America to put the goods on sale. Cuba hopes very soon to get its mind off to rift figures and go back to farming. ? ??? I SHOOTING STABS. Self-Approval. "The members of your legislature stand by you loyally." "Of course, they do," answered Senator Sorghum. "It's another evidence that hon esty is the best policy. I never promised a member one cent for going back on some body else that I didn't pay him." Springtime in Congress. Ere long the blooms will deck the glade, And statesmen will once more review The various speeches that they madej Likewise the things they didn't do. "Some men," said Uncle Eben, "is so con ceited dat it ain' no use tryin' to ilatter 'em. Dey Jes' thinks you was mighty senseless not to find out how good dey Is, years ago." A Ready Explanation. ""Wasn't there an ungrammatlcal sen tence in one of your speeches?" "There was," answered Representative Husker. "I put It there on purpose. You see, we're plain folks up to Punkin Cor ners, and I don't want my constituents to think I'm getting proud Just because I've come to Congress." A Sense of Indignation. "It's a shame!" exclaimed Meandering Mike, as he tossad the piece of newspaper from him "What v-as you readin' about?" asked nodding Pete. ' Dese donations by Andrew Carnegie. It's a shame to be soendin' so much money for libraries when dey orter be buyin' cook books fur some o' dese jails we have to stop at." The Age of Less-ness. We have the wireless telegraph, The horseless carriage, too. There is no telling what this age Of Intellect will do. The laughless joke already makes The hopeful listener blink, Likewise the solemn man provokes Grief with the thoughtless think. But of the series, that which grieves Most sorely as we look, Perhaps is commonest of all? The cash-less pocketbook. The Cartoon. From the Pittsburg Gazette. The cartoon has always played a highly important part, not only In political but in social reform. Although Hogarth, the greatest pictorial satirist that the world has seen, did not draw for the few news papers of his day, the reason simply was that the functions of journalism were lim ited to a degree we can hardly realize at the present hour. But the cartoon Is now taking its legitimate place as a journalistic factor. Suspicious South American Neighbors. From the Buenos Ayres Ilerald. Whatever Chile may do in the way of in creasing her navy we must imitate and go further, for there is no doubt whatever that force Is the only argument or motive which can Influence that country and government of bad faith and broken pledges. Long Range Sovereignty. From the New York Mall and Express. A man who claimed the title of "King of Patagonia" died the other day In Paris, which was as close to his kingdom as he had been for a good many years. The cham pionship for long-distance sovereignty now passes to Richard Croker. ? Too Much to Expect. From the Memphis Commercial-Appeal. Mr. Bryan can hardly expect the demo cratic party to stand out in the cold with him simply for the pleasure of his society. Twin Calamities. From the Philadelphia Record. A *;ood year for corn and wheat in the west is a bad year for populism. Bad crops and preposterous politics appear to be twin calamities. Real Sneezes. From the New York World. To "sneeze when the king takes snuff" may not be much longer a figure of speech at the British court. Hospitable. From the Mexican Herald The "breeziest place" in Washington is said to be the White House. The Roose velts are warm-hearted, hospitable, not a bit stiff, and are full of cheerfulness and activity. ?? ? ?? Beware I From the Chicago Record-Herald. Chile has Just ordered two new battle ships. Look out for trouble. : -? ? ? ? Spring Signs. From the Chicago Tribune. Boys are playing marbles, and the sassa fras woman has appeared at the street corner. ? i ? Mr. Bryan. From the New York Tribune. As a political adviser Bryan Is not In so much demand among the democrats in Washington as formerly, and Is coming, there and elsewhere, to be looked on as a bird of Ill-omen, winging before calamity and throwing a blighting shadow over any cause or party with which he is connected.
