THE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON. WEDNESDAY ... September 24, 1902. CROSBY S. NOTES......,....ditor. S'a livuvnli STAR has a regUlasr and permanent Family CtsulatiOm much mere thea the cembined eir eslatie et the ether Washtaitem dailies. As a News and Advertislan Medium it has me cempetito. grIm order to seold delays en An 160at of personal ahene. letters to 'as BrAR should met be addressed 1e nay iudivIdual coanected with the esee, but simply to THE STAR. Or to she EdItorial or Business Depart" maents. according to tenor OF purpose, Extremists' Views. "Don't touch the trusts," say some peo ple. "They represent the natural and le gitimate development of business. They t.stify to the fact that we are on the crest of a great commercial wave. The clamor against them is grounded either in vicious ness or ignorance. They will justify them selves in the long run, and prove of benefit to the whole country. Don't join in a cry which just now swells in volume purely for political purposes. Wait a bit and you'll see everything come out all right, with the trusta undisturbed and the people's interests well served." "Don't touch the tariff," say other people. "It you do you'll check the existing pros perity, and you may pull down everything about our heads. The tariff is all right. The schedules were prepared by men thor oughly competent for the work, and they have accomplished all that was promised and vowed in the name of protection. What if some industries do enjoy under them great advantages? It is an era of pros perity, and the point is to keep everything on the boom. If you begin to tinker with tle tariff you won't know where to make an end, and from the day you begin uneasi ness will seize and hold the business world." Against these two expressions are to be put the expressions of those on the other extreme. "All trusts are bad and all trusts must go." say the trust "busters." "The Sher man law has failed because it is drafted on the wrong lines. Recognize the true origin of trusts, and the remedy is simple. The tariff is the mother of trusts, and hence by putting all trust-made articles on the free list trusts will be brought to an end. That Is the true and only effective policy. Any other policy is a mere makeshift designed to deceive.the people." "Regardless of trusts and every other side issue, protection is wrong in principle, and the tariff should go," say the free traders. "Don't make a halfway or half-hearted job of it, but give us the freest trade possible with all countries. Reciprocity is but a trick-a concession wrung from those who see their finish. Don't delay the inevitable. Put us in full touch as soon as possible with everybody having something to sell and looking for something to buy." Between these two extremes is found the sentiment that should control the situation. There are trusts that need to be curbed, but free trade in trust-made articles is no fit remedy. ' The injury that would inflict would not stop at the trusts, out would ex tend to innocent branches of trade. The inequalities in the tariff afford no argument against protection, but rather testify to the splendid work of the Dingley law. And the proposition that the schedules cannot be touched at all without toppling over the whole existing stability of values is absurd. The President. There are three things in the President's case in the highest degree assuring: (1) He is a young man in fine physical condition. His present plight is due to a strong man's scorn of hard knocks. The bruises he received on his face in the Pitts field accident were promptly attended to because of their conspicuousness, and no trouhle hes resulted from them. The blow upon his leg was neglected, and a penalty is exacted. Had that received attention-a week's rest wruld probably have sufficed it is reasonable to believe that nothing further would have been heard from it. (2) The President surrend-rs promptly at the suggestion of his physicians. He con quers a natural spirit and cancels a portion of an alluring program out of deference to the importance of his office and the inter ests of the people. This promises good be havior on the part of the patient while he is stretched upon his back. He will take hIs medicine and obey orders-that most difficult thing for a strong man to do. (ti) lie will be here at the seat of govern ment. He would have received, of course, the best of attention anywhere. Medical skill and personal solicitude would have surrounded his couch at Indianapolis as they will in Washington. But elsewhere than here there would have been an cle mnent of wo)rry on the patient's part about the public b,usiness. Trhat will now be re duced to the milnimtum. Such matters as may be pressing, and which he may care to take up. will be at hand with all details. is advisers wiil be near him. If he choose he can preside over a cabinet meeting from his couch. Where McGregor lIes, as where lhe sits, is the head of the table. The President's disappoin:ment must be keen, as must also he that of the people along the uncompleted portion of a well arranged journey. An enthusiastic reception everywhere was assured. We may all take satisfaction from the fact. however, that he was not halted until after the D)etroit meet ing, whose l"ading feature appealed so warmly to his interest. His comrades of the Spanish war were anxious to greet him, and he quite as anxious to greet them; and the occasion was inspiring to every body. At a later diay--maybe not before next year--the unfulfllled engagements can be taken up. and receptions now abandoned will then he in order. And as given then they will be all the heartier for the post ponemen:. Even Mr. Bryan Is compelled to realize that the tariff is the only po:itlcal issue that can be retied upon to ptut in an appearance at every eleition. If Mr. Cannon becomes Speaker the popu lar sense of dignity will insist that he stop allowing himself to be called "Uncle Joe." The People Must Have Tue1. It is impossible to assent to the proposi tion that the coal mines in the United States are simply private property and that the people, or the state, have no interest therein. The proposition that the people cannot interfere in a struggle which cuts off the supply of a natural product nearly as essential as air and light is untenable. The state has the right to Interpose be tween two men fighting in the street. It may be strictly a personal matte~r between the belligerents, but it is also a state af fair, in that it disturbs the public peace. They may be compelled not only to desist, but may he punished for affray and dis order. How, then, is it with two sets of men whose struggle not only disturbs the peace, but interrupts the business of a nation and menaces a whole people with discomfiture and bodily ills, wi,th suffei'ng and possible fatalities? Is there no con stituathonal way to atop the fight? Apparently it is within the power of the 'state of Pennsylvania under her constitu tica to end the coal famine today. Her constitution contains this clause: "The exercise of the police power of the state shall sever be abrMdged or so eos strumS4 as te Penmit oe,aMemto aemanca th beslnesm i 'u006 minng as-e fringe the equal rights of individuals or the general well-being of the state." The state has power over the mining cor porations to compel them to furnish coal or give way to a receiver, and power over the strikers to prevent them from inter fering with violence to check coal mining. The state is no stranger to interference in affairs between labor and capital. In the agricultural strikes in Italy the Italian government sent its soldiers into the har vest fields to reap the grain that was needed by the people, but which the par ties to the strike intended to let rot before either would yield. The government of the United States has interfered between labor and capital in order that the letters of the people might not be delayed in transit. If the coal owners and miners will not protect the people from the danger of freezing by ?upplying the nation's accus tomed winter fuel the people, acting through the state, must protect themsEives, and brushing aside in a legal and brderly way all obstructions obtain access to the needed fuel. A Star Route, Indeed. The Louisville Evening Post contains the following news paragraph of unusual in terest: "General John B. Castleman has filed with Postmaster Baker a bid for the star route contract from Pleasant Hill to Burgin. in Mercer county. The length of the route is six miles. "General Castleman told Postmaster Ba ker that if his bid was accepted he intended to start an innovation in mail carrying. " 'Instead of the customary conveyance.' said General Castleman, 'I intend to carry the mail with a coach and four. Occa sionally I will vary this with a tallyho, and will have outsiders. postillions, etc. The horses will be Kentucky thorough breds.' "Pleasant Hill is the summer home of General Castleman. and is a picturesque spot. His bid for the star route contract will be filed at Washington tomorrow." Let us hope that this contract may be awarded to this distinguished bidder. He 13 a man of his word, and when he says he will perform the service in the style de scribed he means just that. And it may be added that the horses in the traces will be no more thoroughbred than the driver on the box. General Castleman served with distinction in the confederate army, and when the war with Spain was declared he promptly offered his sword to President Mc Kinley. The offer was accepted, and he commanded a Kentucky regiment in the Porto Rico campaign under General Miles. He put his men into the field in such ex cellent condition, and otherwise acquitted himself so well, he was promoted to a brigadier generalcy. He is a man of means, and lives in comfort. His friends are legion. He is fond of outdoor sports, and he knows both the ropes and the road. He is one of the best whips in a state where whips are numerous. Uncle Sam is getting pretty rich, and it may be that in time he will deliver the malls over all the star routes by coach and four. And as a preliminary to so picturesque a de parture why not experiment with this route of six miles between Pleasant Hill and Bur gin, and cover it in the way proposed by this Kentucky soldier and citizen? j/ Mr. Platt at Saratoga. In the political parlance of New York Mr. Platt is called the "easy boss." Well, it cannot be denied that he has been "easy" this time. He seems to have been over ruled at nearly every point. He started out by declaring against an indorsement of Mr. Roosevelt for 19 4. That position had to be abandoned. He was quoted as in favor of absolute silence on the trust question. The platform deliverance is not striking for ag gressiveness as to trusts, but the question could not be ignored. He opposed Mr. Woodruff for nomination as lieutenant gov ernor, and brought forward a Mr. Sheldon fOr the place. The Woodruff men made it so warm for the Platt candidate that Gov ernor Odell was finally called in and in duced to order Mr. Sheldon off the track. Mr. Platt couldn't save him. This leaves the selection of Mr. Quigg for temporary chairman of the convention as Mr. Platt's sole accomplishment. It may prove to be a good thing for the republicans. Mr. Platt's candidacy for re-election to the Senate will not be opposed in case of republican suc cess in November, but his reign as dictator is drawing to a close. Roosevelt and Odell refuse to bow the knee, and they are too strong to be coerced. Of the many automobile owners In New port who were arrested for exceeding the speed limit all except one paid their fines. TIhis one man announces his determina tion to fight the case to the highest courts, his assumption being that it wiil be im r.ossible to identify an offender or to pro duce complete proof that he was going faster than the law allowed. His task is an ungracious one. If he hopes to be q;uoted as a hero even by his fellow auto mobilists he will probably be disappointed, for the people who are willing to confess a desire to break laws by way of recreation are in a vast mInority. -- I l'. It is only fair to assume that Kaiser Wil helm does not say all the foolish things that are attributed to him. No doubt he has his troubles with the fakirs, the same as other statesmen. Coal at $15 a ion is a melancholy reminder that the jokes about the value of coal equal ing that of jewelry were in the nature of prophecies. The man who really desires to get out of office is so rare that he creates a great deal more interest than the one who is trying to get in. Mr. Rockefeller is dyspeptic, but no more so than some of the people who desire to hold him personally responsible for being unreasonably rich. General Corbin thinks that the kaiser has a fine army and the kaiser thinks that we have a great General Corbin. Venezuela evidently regards the Monroe doctrine as something that can be kept on tap and used when desired. Bill Devery would not have a seat in Con gress. He can get more money in less time in his own town. Mr. Billy Mason is sure that there are politioal parties enough to go 'round. Even if the coal operators win a victory they will get very little applause. V 3'or and Against Bryant=s= The strange doctrines which came out of the west, crystallised in Mr. Bryan and ob tained a vogue at Chicago in 1896 and Kan sas City in 1900, appear to be in the even ing of their day. Here and there has been held a democratic convention in which the old war cries of Kansas City have rung out, but in democratic conventions in a number of the important states they have been run out. The states in which the democratic conventions have indorsed the Kansas City eccentricities are Maine, South Dakota, Nevada, Nebraska, Kansas, Min nesota, Ohio, Texas, M4ssouri, North Caro lina and Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania dem ocrats gave a diluted indersement of the splintered K. C. platform. They merely re affirmed the platform adopted by them last year and which contained an indorsement of the Kansas City documnent.

VAN)iuf a 80 UN W80 are so few of them that they cannot b heard except when they get together in 1 convention. and in Texas and Missour there are so many of them that it does no iake any difference whether their plat forms are built of timber or tissue. The democrats of Indiana, a great polit ical battle ground, have declared for democ racy and against Bryanim. In Illinois ant Michigan. states to which democrats hav laid claim (before the votes were counted in presidential years, democratio conven tions have turned their backs on the Peer less Leader. In Massachusetts and Ver mont Bryan's picture has been turned to ward the wall, and in these states demo crats are noted for the stubborness of theil democracy. In Delaware, Wyoming, Norti Dakota and several other small state democratic conventions have forsaken the Silver Prophet. Nobody doubts the wae democrats of New York and New Jerse3 feel toward Bryanism. The democrats 01 the empire state of the south, Georgia, hav said in convention, "Enough of Bryan anc defeat." The democratic party is makng a strug gle to pull itself together and get out 01 the hole into which it permitted itself to bi drawn, but the two jarring elements arl still far apart. A few more royal visitors like Grand Duki Boris will make the average citisen thin twice before he accepts a place on the en tertainment committee. I 000 If Tom L. Johnson's political automobili meets with an accident Mr. McLean wil probably send no condolences. Of course, the anthracite barons wiI pooh-pooh the idea of paying anybody's fine for using soft coal. SHOOTING STA R. Willing to Take Them. "I suppose you are willing to take the consequences of your present course." "Of course, I am," answered Senatoi Sorghum. "So far the consequences havt been pecuniary profit of a very considerabli amount." Anticipated. "Don't you think we had better lay asidf something for a rainy day?" was the some. what reproachful. "Charley, dear," said yopng Mrs. Torkins "I am so glad you said that. While I wa: out shopping this morning I bought twc lovely silk umbrellas; one for you and on for me." Home Again. "Glad to get home from your rest?" "Rest!" repeated the man who went awa3 on a vacation. "I went to the finest sum mer resort advertised, hoping to recuper ate." "Didn't you?" "My friend, the joy of the present mo ment may help me some. You don't knoi what a relief it is to get back to a big cit3 where every place shuts up at midnighl and where they don't permit horse racing 0 faro bank." Another IndustriaL Victim. The man now lifts the honey out; The bee declares it is unjust, And in his heart believes, no doubt, That he is up against a trust. "Don't brag," said Uncle Eben. "If you'l smahter dan de res' o' de world, go aheac an' git de money 'ste'd o' puttin' ev'rybod3 on deir guard." A Ray of Hope. He spoke in accents of dismay About the punishment Which waits on those who go astray, And never do repent. He thought of endless torments there Amid Dantean rocks. His views upon the subject were Extremely orthodox. And then a smile across his face Was faintly seen to creep; Quoth he: "At least 'twill be a place Where coal is very cheap." The Peril Rises. From the Springfield Republican. Well might the visitors from MIars declari "What fools these mortals be!" as he con templated the pitiable helplessnrss of th4 American people touching their winter'. supply of coal. There is coal in the bowel of the earth in plenty for the peple's con sumption, but the way has been and i blocked and we may not have it. Jpwarc creeps the price of anthracite, now going by leaps, until already it is well nigh ou' of the reach of roor people, and those 0 moderate means can only ob)tain it at the sacrilece of necessities. The situation ra passed beyond the Iua:Im of h'umor-it is ir the stage of tragedy and of horror. Were the United States at war, with a blockade around us and prices soaring as t;.cy did ir the confederacy, we could not be in a worse plight. Think of the possibilities of evi which the national predicamer.t enwraps and then of how needless it all Is. How long would we permit air and light to be curtailed? Coal Is searcely less necessary To make its price excessive and zo s'o larg< an extent prohibitive, 1is to imperil healti and life. The Roumanian Note. From the New York Tribune. European comments upon Secretary Hay's note concerning the Roumanian Jews arn varied. In England they are, of course chiefly favorable and commendatory, the one exception noted being not of the first importance or marked with discreet infor mation. Nothing could be more unwar ranted than t-he covert sneer of the St. James Gazette, that while the United Statei is solicitous for the Roumanian Jews It is unwilling to welcome them. Intelligeni perusal of Secretary Hay's note should have made such an utterance impossible. The United States Is willing to welcome all the Jews of Roumania who may come hither voluntarily and in full competence of mind, body and estate. It does not wel come a single Immigrant of any race 01 creed from any land who is unsound, in cofnpetent and sent hither against his will. Monopoly Invites Destruction. From the Council Bluffs Nonpareil. 'While the people of the country are not yet ready to acquiesce in more complete government supervision of such great pub lic utiltles as railways and mines, it may come to it some day. Such conflicts as the one that has now been waged for months ii the antahracite region tend to hastem the time when the people shall rise up and demand that natural monopolies be con ducted for the general welfare and not for the specific benefit of a few. Mine ownera have rights, but they have not the right tC let the world freeze while unmeasured quantities of fuel lie within the earth for use, The people are slow to interfere is the conduct of personal -business, but no cessity may compel it to make the private business of coal mining public business. Jiltered Water. From the Cleveland Leader. Fish kept in filtered water, it is said, will die. That is because the food has been taken out of it. The food, however, Is what makes unfiltered water dangrerous as a boy erage to humnan beings. Shkda of the Old Roman? Proin the Mobile Register. How would old Allen G.
