TIIE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON. MONDAY June 30, 1902. CROSBY S. NOYES Editor. THE EVEXIHO STAR baa a rental and permanent Family Circulation much more than the combined cir culation of the other Washington dallies. Aa a Neiri and Advertising Medium it baa no competitor. C71n order to avoid delays on ae ronnt of personal absence, letters to THE STAR should not be addressed to ant individual connected with the office, bnt simply to THE STAR, or to the Editorial or Basineas Depart The Democratic Campaign. It is reported that the Anti-Trust League ?an organization composed in the main ot followers of Mr. Bryan?U not pleased with the plans and purposes of the democratic congressional committee. The committee, it la charged, is not. as it should be. anti plutocratic. On the contrary, it is harbor ing plutocrats in its membership, and so liciting aid from the money power. All of which is against the Interests of the peo ple, and contrary to the professions of the democratic party. Coming so soon after the caucus of the House democrats, at which trusts were roundly denounced, this deliverance may be considered in connection with that. It shows, as The Star predicted on Saturday, that the House caucus will not prove a vote-getter. Nobody is to be misled today by partisan claptrap about the money pow er. It is doubtless true, as the Anti-Trust League charges, that Chairman Griggs and his lieutenants will use whatever money they can obtain from business interests throughout the country. And in doing so they will simply be following precedents. Mr. Bryan's two campaigns for the presi dency were assisted by men known as plu tocrats. The books are not open to inspec tion, but the fact is well known. There arc corporations which make a point of sub bribing to both parties when a fight is on. The campaign chairman, who should put an embargo upon the color of cash would bo something of a curiosity in our politics. No apologies are due from Mr. Ciriggs for any efforts he may be making to fill his strong box. short of highwaymanry and murder. When a political manager needs money he needs it as badly as a Texan does his gun when in a corner. The objection to Mr. James L. Norrls as a member of the congressional committee illustrates the situation completely. The Anti-Trust League should know that the present weakness of the democratic party is due to the fact that thousands of pros perous men who for years were active in democracy's interests have for six years past either been lukewarm or hostile. They have regarded their party under its new leadership as the enemy of business and prosperity. If the party is to regain power these men must be won back. The party cannot get along without them. They, however, can get along without the party, for as a matter of fact they have never been so prosperous as during the time their party under Mr. Bryan's leadership has been out of office and powerless. Mr. Norris, we may be sure, will not be displaced. The Coal Strike Possibly Broken. The hard coal operators appear to be confident that they will soon break the strike. They announce constant recruits from the union ranks, not only in the pump ing force, but in the actual mining force as well. The latter, however, it seems, are not being put immediately to work, but are being held in reserve until enough have signified their intention of returning to enable the operators to start full gangs into the headings. The union leaders ridi cule these claims, but they base their de nials upon generalities which do not con vince as readily as do the figures presented by the operators. The miners' convention will not take place for more than a fort night. and if the operators' claims are at all well founded the strike may wholly col lapse before that event. Such a conclusion would undoubtedly greatly please the people at large, the con sumers of coal, who have viewed the situa tion with considerable apprehension as the strike has progressed into the summer. The threatened destruction of the mines by ponding caused a marked falling off in the pubTie ^vmpathy for the miners, whose cause was much stronger before that sui cidal policy was adopted. Before this issue, which threatened such a tremendous loss to the consumers, the grievances of the miners and the principle of the recognition of the union paled and there became but one desire on the part of the country, that of securing by any means a speedy termi nation of the costly struggle. If the .union leaders decide to adopt sharp measures to check the retreat of the de serters from their ranks there may be seri ous trouble at the mines soon. The para mount issu? today. It would seem, is for them to prevent the resumption of work at the mines, even on a small scale, before the convention of the United Miners on the 17th. The operators have lately been suc cessfully invoking the law to prevent and punish small disturbances, causing the im mediate arrest of all agitators who have sought to Interfere with the operation of the pumps or to molest the non-union workers In their avocations. This campaign. It is believed, has had its effect in weakening the determination of the strikers. The democrats declare that the tariff and the trusts are the chief political Issues. If they desire any help In denouncing the trusts, the republicans will always be pre pared to provide It. The Filipinos are so ungrateful and unre liable that it is to be doubted whether they would vote for Senator Mas>n if they had a chance. Grover Cleveland Is coming to be classed among the men who can always be t tiled on for a few remarks. The King's Progress. The rapid, steady progress reported from the bedside of King Edward has led in Dngland to a hope amounting practically to a belief in his total recovery from his ailment and the operation. But in this country the bulletins have been read with a large degree of skepticism, not as to the sincerity of the physicians signing them, but their ultimate reliability. The sad ex periences of this nation during the illness of President McKinley are too fresh in mind to permit much optimism in such a Situation. It is too well remembered how after the first grievous shock the reports from Buffalo cheered the people and led them day by day to the hope and even the belief that his restoration to health was 'jut a matter of a few days or weeks. Con fidence was restored even to the highest of ficial circles. Then suddenly came the first alarming symptoms, followed quickly by the bulletins which indicated that the phy sicians had grave fears. The end was swift In coming. The general similarity between the two cases has led to comparisons accountable for the present American attitude of doubt. An abdominal operation was in each ease performed upon a man past middle life. Of course, in one case the cause was a pistol wound perforating the stomach and in the other a diseased condition of an intestine. President UcKinley's past life was in his favor, while that of King Edward is not such as to encouraH^ hope in his resistance to disease. Attention has been called to a difference In the treatment of t?e two cases which Is by some regarded as highly important and which the event may prove ? to bei ? The President's wound was immediately closed permanently, while that Inflicted by the operators upon King Edward was closed only in part, drainage tubes being left to permit the escape of malevolent matter which might be produced by the disease or the operation. There was no opportunity in the President's case for the physicians to detect the development of the death causes, save by the rapid rise of temperature and the weakness of the heart when the end was close at hand. In the king's case no signs have been detected by means of the tubes to lead to the suspicion that all is not well. This difference involves grave scien tific considerations which the public Is not competent to debate, as regards the efficacy and wisdom of one or the other method of treatment. Its chief importance now Is In throwing perhaps some light upon the bul letins from London and disclosing their re liability. In brief, if there were morbid conditions behind the king's wound there has been opportunity to detect them sooner than was the case with the President. According to the statistk j noted twelve years ago by Sir Frederick Treves, now one of the surgical staff at Buckingham Palace, the highest death rate in cases of opera tions for abscess of the intestines occurs on the seventh and eighth days after opera tion, which in the present instance will be today and tomorrow, and perhaps Wednes day. Should the king survive these three days, therefore, according to the authori ties of the past, his chances for ultimate recovery will be very greatly increased, even as his danger may at ' this time be greatest since the operation, despite his ap parent recovery. ? ? The New York Situation. In a New York letter to the Philadelphia Ledger appears this paragraph: "Ex-Senator Hill, in his Tilden Club ad dress, spoke of political conditions this year as resembling those of 1882, when the dem ocrats swept the state. There are. indeed, certain points of resemblance. The year preceding President Garfield was assassi nated. and was succeeded in the presidency by a New York man, Chester A. Arthur, just as another New York man succeeded another Ohio President last year. Then, as now, there was a republican governor and a republican Congress. The democratic party had long been out of power. Three years before Tammany had bolted the state ticket, and John Kelly ran as an inde pendent for governor. He was near the end of his leadership of Tammany. In like manner Richard Croker has retired from the leadership, and Tammany is in a state of disorganization. But here the similarity ends. In 1882 the republican governor was defeated for renomination. under circum stances which created a profound dissatis faction among republican voters. This year Governor Odell Is to be renominated without opposition. In 1882 the star of Grover Cleveland rose in Buffalo. Just at the time that that of Samuel J. Tilden was gradually declining. Today no successor of Cleveland appears. No new star in the democratic firmament is ascending. There are dissensions In the republican party now, but not such a deep chasm as sep arated -the stalwart and half-breed factions in 1882. Then Cleveland was elected gov ernor by nearly 21M>,00<> plurality, but no body believes that it is possible for any such political revolution to take place this year." A little examination shows that these points of resemblance don't resemble. The situation of today and that of twenty years ago are in essence as different as can be. In 1882 the republicans were seriously di vided, not only as respected local but na tional leadership. Governor Cornell had while in office made a number of enemies, and they determined to defeat him for re nomination. They succeeded in their aim, but as a forged telegram was employed in bringing about the result, the Cornell men took revenge later, and in large numbers remained away from the polls. Mr. Cleve land's phenomenal majority was not a democratic victory won on democratic prin ciples, but a republican protest against a republican fraud. Moreover, President Ar thur was not on speaking terms at the time with Mr. Conkling; and while the lat ter had retired from active politics his friends were lukewarm toward Judge Fol ger, who was the President's friend. The situation today is all very different from that. Mr. Odell has made some ene mies, but they are not seeking to defeat his renomination. He can have that for the asking; and, upon the whole, he is very popular. Mr. Arthur succeeded a President with whom he had been at odds. Mr. Roosevelt has succeeded a President with whom his personal and official relations were of the most cordial kind. He has fallen heir to the friendship of many of the men who stood very near to Mr. McKinley. In New York, as elsewhere, therefore, the President's Interest in the success of a can didate is a help and not a hindrance. It is hardly to be expected that, with everything so favorable, the republicans of New York will throw away their opportu nity. There does not appear to be the slightest opening for a second Cleveland. It was a forged telegram, as already stated, which produced that two hundred thousand democratic majority in 18S2, and not any exceptional strength possessed by the man who. although he had made a good mayor of Buffalo, was unknown to the people of the state at large, and not overly popular with the politicians. ? It is said that Mr. Bryan and Mr. Cleve land entertain a personal dtsii'<e for each other, so bitter that there is no chance of Mr. Bryan's fishing In the ex-President's private grounds nor of Mr. Cleveland's en tering the new barn when Mr. Bryan gives a husking bee. Thus are the complications that beset the democratic party multiplied. Numerous prophecies that King Edward would never be crowned have been un earthed. The Mother Shfptons never lose an opportunity and the recovery of the royal Invalid is greatly to be desired, in addition to other considerations, as a blow at superstition. ? 0 ? It is not entirely clear how the beet sugar growers would be benefited toy the reduc tion of the duty on Iron, steel and other products, suggested as the logical accom paniment of any revision of the sugar tariff. General Wood's Indorsement by President Roosevelt will count for a great deal more in popular opinion than anything his ad verse critics can say. Cross or Cadttceusf The army uniform board, it is reported, is now considering the advisability of dis carding the familiar Geneva cross as the emblem to designate the hospital corps, and the substitution therefor of the caduceus or Mercury's rod, consisting of a winged rod entwined by a serpent. This change would perhaps be applauded by some as in the Interests of classic art, but It would be deplored by those who regard the Geneva cross with reverence due to its world-wide recognition. The red crow stands today for humanity and succor on the battlefield. Its appearance, at least among civilised armies, is the signal for a temporary truce. No more serious charge can well be brought against an army than that its members have fired upon or other wise disregarded the red cross. This em blem has its origin in the fact that the Geneva convention established rules for the recognition and protection of hospital corps In all countries, and its abandonment, even In part, by the United States would be regrettable. The caduceus Is undeniably a graceful emblem. It has a striking sig nificance, too. In that the rod symbolises power, the wings intelligence and activity and the serpent wisdom, qualities which are undeniably desirable in a physician or surgeon, whether military or civilian. But i these meanings can scarcely overcome the wholesome significance and sentiment of the Geneva cross, and might quite aa ap f proprlately be appU?d-t? the designation some other branch of a modern army.-'such as the signal corps, whose crossed flags 'are today hardly modern In view of the use oj. such appliances as the heliograph and tie wireless telegraphy. ? ? * ? ^ Admiral Dewey's Testimony. Admiral Dewey In his testimony betfc** the Senate Philippine committee has made three things very clear: (1) He did not promise Aguinaldo or any of the Filipinos an Independent government in the Philippine Islands. He had no au thority to do anything of the kind, nor wtth his opinion of those worthies would he have exercised it had he possessed it. (2) He did not salute any flag which Agni naldo may have raised in Manila bay. If any such piece of bunting was flying in those waters while he was there he did not see it. Nor would he have paid any hoed to it had he seen it. (3) He never gave to Aguinaldo the con sideration due to a great man and a leader. Why? Because he did not regard him as entitled to such consideration. Aguinaldo Impressed Admiral Dewey as bedng no more than an adventurer and a looter. The Tagalog George Washington is not recog nlzaible at close range from the anti-Impe rialist portrait. All of this was very disconcerting to the anti-imperialist members of the commit tee, and while the adoption of such means was disrespectful to the distinguished wit ness the only hope of breaking the force of his testimony was in a little police court badgering. But that failed. The truth reigns and Admiral Dewey still lives. As the public becomes better acquainted with Aguinaldo the comparison with George Washington seems more and more like a Joke. . , s ? ? Some rather severe things are being said about Aguinaldo, but that statesman and patriot is not taking any chances on de manding an investigation. Numerous theatrical importations from Europe are announced for next s-eason. Na tive literary talent may be compelled to de mand a tariff on plays. Having won a yacht race, the German emperor no doubt entertains hopes of be coming as important a personage in aquatic sports as even Sir Thomas Lipton. ? The consumer, who Is one of the parties most directly interested, has no one to rep resent him at the strike conferences. July 5 is the day when It Is proper to con gratulate all parents whose children have survived the fireworks. ? ? ?? Several Englishmen who did not receive titles are naturally Inclined to feel more or less disgruntkd. J There is still a large amount of talk to be dug through before the isthmian canal can be constructed. ? > ? j Mr. Croker's face smashing is not feared In New York nearly so much as his slate smashing. Admiral Dewey Is as terse on the witness stand as he is when on active duty. SHOOTING STABS. Accidentally Appropriate. "The measure will be beeten!" wrote the congressman. "Excuse me," said the secretary, "but haven't you misspelled 'beaten?' " "No." said the statesman who makes it a rule to admit nothing; "I have not mis spelled anything. I am talking about Cu ban reciprocity." Time Saved. "Some of the most successful Americans," said the sententious summer boarder, "were obliged in youth to study by the light of pine knots." "Yes." answered Farmer Comtossel; "that's where they had a big advantage. They didn't have to spend a large share of their lives dodgin' live wires an' learnln' not to blow out the gas." The Chief Consideration. Said the savage, just ready to shoot, "I may as well tell you that loot Is what I expect. Though I shouldn't object If I got independence to boot." Interrupted Comment. "Does your husband ever quit talking. about golf?" said one woman. "Yes" answered the other. "Sometimes he keeps perfectly quiet, while he is play ing it." His Advice. "So you wouldn't advise a man to go into politics unless he has money," said the be ginner. "I didn't say that," answered Senator Sorghum; "if you can get somebody else to put up the monejr for you go ahead by all means." An Example Rejected. Honey be*! Honey bee!
