THE EVENING STAR
WASHINGTON. TUESDAY .... . November 11, 190. CROSBY S. NOYE.......... Editor. THE EVENING STAR has a regular and per maneat Family Circulation mauc men then the combined circulation of the other Washington dailies. As a News and Ad vertising Medium it has no competitor. 'in order to avoid delays on account of personal absence, letters to TH E STAR should not be addressed to any individual connected with the office. but simply to THE STAR. or to the Editorial or Business Departments.,ac. cording to tenor or purpose. Mr. Roosevelt and the Colored Voter. The r. huk, admninistered by the President to th, so .d 'Lily White'' republicans of the -~:h was thoroughly well deserved a :l +'n:ir. ' In keeping with his reputation for lair pl.> auni honest fighting. He could nit v,ry w, have failed to take such ac lion. As a 'itizen he has always affiliated with th.- ,arty which stands for equal rigts for ail m in before the law, and as a saldier In' fought side by side with negro troops in 'uba and received from them some viu bh- and tim(ly assistance in the balti, -f San Ju:an hill. As President of the t'niteid Stat,s he stands for all the people. Every i:,-onsidieration, therefore. of justice, duty. gratitud" and manhood required that he set his face in opposition to a movement inaugurated in the name of his party against a leading principle of the party and in flat violation of the spirit of our Ameri can institutions. In discussing this question it is not neces sary to go back to the enfranchisement of an Ignorant and helpless race. But if that is desired tiere need be no hesitation about confessing that a very great mistake was made when :he electorate wan so enlarged. The gray, st injustice was dor.e both to the negro and to the white man, and both have since paid a severe penalty for legislation t nacted partly in anger and partly in ignor ance of or contempt for most probable con sequences. But thir:y-odd years of freedom and lim ited opportunity must now be taken into the account. There are many negroes who by industry, patience and a correct walk have made homes for themselves and shown the proper appreciation of the requirements of good citizenship. They pay taxes, they educate their children, they obey the laws, and they enjoy the respect of their more reputable white neighbors. What shall be come of the,se men? Shall they be bracketed with the thriftless and criminal and un worthy of their race and cast into outer darkness?' Have they no claims upon con sideratin? Will the state benefit by op pressing such people? How is it possible? The negro question is national, and It must be dealt with in a national spirit and on national lines. In the south the negro is barred from the polls. In the north his vote is solicited. He Is coddlid as election day approaches and nuie much of. In New York Tammany Hall boasts of an ally who by reason of his shrewdness and capacity as a political worker is known as the "colored Croker." He histh s among his race for votes for Tammany's tickets, and he is supplied with the sinews of war out of Tammany's strong box. Why this difference? Is this "colored Croker" a worthier man than the colored farmer in the south who owns his home and respeers himself and obeys the laws under which he lives? New York Novelties. Trust New York for novelties. So many extraordinary things happen there, all the way from a phenomenal political majority to a shocking murder case, that the read ing public is no longer amazed when the prints tell of some new wrinkle in the way of sensation. The other night an explosion of fireworks occurred in the very heart of a crowd of nearly twenty thousand people. The marv,I was that more than the dozen who lost their lives were not killed. Be hiini that was a more serious question, why the display was permitted under such dan g,rous conditions. The answer that it was th,' New York way seems to have satisfied the curinsity of the public at large. Now comes news of the burning of a steel bridge tower. Last night the East River bridge structure, under construction, caught fire and blazed for a long time, with fatal re euilts and : damage to the work which is estimated at from half a million to a mil lion and a half. This is positively unique and, again. it is New Yorkesque. The disaste r is serious apart from the im mediate loss of life and values, for it is likely to set hack the wor.k of construction several nmonths, and in the present condi tion of New York's avenues of communica tion with B3rooklyn such a delay Is to be deeply deplored. The transportation prob lem is acut' now and becoming more so with every month as the population of the b>ig city swells and the facilities for carry lng it from place to place fall to keep pace. The second East river bridge should have been in uise a dozen years ago, but it Is New York's way to delay such proJects un til necissity crowds the program to execu tion. For niany' months now the conditions around the New York entrance to the old Brooklyn bridge have been so bad as to cail forth the denunciations of the rnost conservative citizens. Human life is placed there ini jeopardy every hour. Yet action is postponied fro-n time to time while plans are considered and disputes arise between engine.'rs and politIcal influences are get ting In their work. .And each day's delay adds to the difficulty. For a hustling, busi tes-like community New York sets a very slow pace for itself at times and suffers from niany handicaps by accidents such as this latest disaster. The Bennin.g race meet is distinguished by the usual riadline'ss to sell "expert informa tion" which would make its possessor rich If be wouldi keelp it to hImself. The public will be glad to have a verdict in the Mlolin( ux case. There are more re aent sensations with a better cla!m to pop ular Inter' t. Comm. rially, this country has decidedly the b-st of it. No American heiresses are SLdv'ertising fir F uropecan nioblemeni. Tammany's Lease of Life. Thb l'wlan Times cloa,s an editorial on the Amt ri an ilectionis with the following solemn obs< rvation: "it is dliscreditable, and even disquieting, to discover that Ta'mmany Hall, so often reported struck idown with a mortal blow. is more vior4ous and aggressive than ever." A mortal blow for Tammany? Why Tam many is immotnrtal. At any rate it promises :o live as luig as the gover'nment does. It is a ixedi institution. It, performs defnite fution hrs. 'rie people of New York appear to be uniall to get along without it. No other fe attrc of our political life affords mort int,r.st or wonder to the student than this or'gaiz:ation1, whIch, with Its work In corruption, is yet the chosen instrument re p.'ateiy of meii of character and conscience for the. forwarding of their public, and now anid thin of thi-ir private, aims, To illuistraute: L.ast year Tammanty was sco.urgetd from offiee. for offenses so rank they smilIed from Harlem to the Battery. Ther.- was a union of effort to get rid of a rulewhich hail disgraced and was despoil ing the town. Richard Croker on the out side was "working for his pocket all the time," and wnany of his lieutenants on the inside were quite as Industrious in quite as outrageous a way. The result was a revolt on the part of mnany men who had helped vote Tammany int,o powen, Biir' 3. fa. was willing to head an oppoSition ticket for tion, and then supported Tammany. but in a paper he had published on the subject of commerslam in politics he had armed Tammanys opponents in the campaign with a telling weapon. The city, by a.large majority, was rescued from a loathsome clutch. This year New York smiles on Tammany again. Mr. Coler in his race for governor solicits and receives the support of Tam many. He hobnobs with its leaders before election, and cordially thanks them by let ter for their support after the election. Tammany has not changed since last year. It is in the main composed of the same gang of strikers and looters that an aroused public sentiment then drove from power. Its rehabilitation next year-and Tuesday's action is bound to have an influence in that direction-will mean a reinauguration of the reign of plunder which was interrupted when Seth Low took office. The reason for all this? There seems to be no reason for it unless that impatience may be called a reason which leads an elec torate to willingly return to the foulest of rules after one It has established for the purposes of correction has failed to reach the unattainable heights of perfection. A mortal blow for Tammany? No, in deed! The blows, hard as they sometimes are. which are administered to Tammany are never delivered with the view of knock ing the organization entirely out, and they never have that effect. Walt until 1904 and see certain men in New York who are now eloquent in denouncing Tammany lock shields with Mr. Croker and his lieutenants and rush into the presidential engagement upon terms which will inure to Tammany's benefit in the event of success at the polls. eI Democracy and Leadership. In some of the discussion of the democ racy's present needs the name of the late William E. Russell of Massachusetts is mentioned and the opinion expressed that if he were alive the opportunity would be his. Ills leadership, it is asserted, would be readily accepted, and success with him as the presidential candidate In 1904 would certainly be accomplished. Is not this but another evidence of the rattled condition of democratic sentiment on the subject of re gaining power? Mr. Russell was an attractive and accom plished young man. His personal popular ity at home was very great and well de served. It brought him large returns. He was three times chosen governor of the bay state by reason of it. Where other dernocratic candidates had failed he suc ceeded. He acquitteq himself well in office. But it is no disrespect to the office or to his memory to say that whatever his talents may have been they were not severely tried there. The machine of government in that old commonwealth is so well constructed it almost runs itself. The head engineer need do little more than keep an eye on things. Now, nothing should be plainer than that the democracy's present plight in the coun try at large calls for a man of greater stat ure than that. The party is not only divided. but angrily divided, on all the lead ing issues of the day. And one of those issues-the line that should be followed with respect to our new possessions-is both new and very difficult. The situation, indeed. with the party out of power and torn with dissensions, is one to try the skill and pa tience of a resourceful veteran, trained in opposition and seasoned by adversity. No, men of the type of the late Mr. Rus sell have valuable uses and they play good parts, but they should never be called to the helm in the time of a great blow. A stronger hand and head are necessary then. The democracy is far from being bankrupt in the way of leadership, and it should call upon the right sort of men for this emergency. It cannot reasonably hope to regain power through the agency of any trick, or by simply pointing to a candidate against whom no charges are laid. The talk of putting up some colorless man of business, or some respectable judge with out a political record, is unworthy of the occasion. The country has rarely had 9o much important work on hand; and for a great party to offer f2r the suffrages of the people a candidate for the highest office whom they scarcely know would be to in vite and deserve and meet defeat. The play is Hamlet, not Little Lord Fauntleroy, and a tragedian and great actor should be cast for the title role. Sef The Board of Trade. Last night's annual meeting of the Board of Trade demonstrated that this organiza tion is in ex llent shape for the winter's campaign before Congress for the passage of the necessary legislation in the District's interest. The reports of the various com mittees and of PresIderrt Smith and Secre - tary Harries showed that last year was ex ceptionally well filled with important aic tion and that the Board was called upon repeatedly for aid In forwarding import4nt enterprises for the betterment af the Dis trict. The coming session may not reqtuire activity upon such a variety of questions, but those which are now pending are of the first importance. Some readjustments of the taxation question will call for hard work on the part of the citizens, working either individually or in association, and the unfinished steam railroad legislation may require local pressure to prevent a fur ther delay. The Board of Trade has s:cored so heavily in the vast in Its strokes for the District's material advancement that It 1s gratifying now to find it is so well organ ized and prepared for further endeavors. The sugar trust, it is reported, has de ctded to reduce the price of sugar to 4 cents a pound in retaliation upon the beef trust for some alleged infraction of pgreements. The public will applaud all such maneuvers and feel inclined to exclaim, with the fron tiersman whose wife was being chased by an intruder, "Go it, bear! G3o it, old wo man" When a Mormon sta-tesman comes, to Congress he Is lucky if he succeeds in being looked on as a man wit.h a past rather than as a man with a polygamous present. John Mitchell is a lucky man to be called upon to deny presidential aspirations so early in his career, even if they relate only to the head of a labor organization. Xfter it is all over Pietro Mascagni will probably find that he has accumulated enough material in Amnericatowrite half a dozen stirring operas. Mascagni is disappointed In this country. He Is another victim of the European su perstition that In America five-dollar bills grow on bushes. - I I So long a. he has the admiration of so distinguished a litterateur as Hall Caine Mr. Hall Caine will manage to be content. I I The Sultan of Bacolod will probably try to make this government believe that he was misquoted by the interpreter. Mr. Coler says that the election Is a closed incident. And Mr. Coler is out in 'the rain. I I When Emperor William puts his play on no music hall will dare burlesque It. The Kaiser in England. Whenever the German emperor vilsits England a good many people begin to see things. His present visit is bringing these people out in a. swelling chorus of discov ery. Important changes are predicted as the result of the visit. But why should they be expected? There are good every day reasons for the kaiser'~ presen c under the roof of hIs uncle. Th6'two ,ereigns get along very wel and just now t spetm 6herent a,emha. feas pseSaing to hIs hout his great pleasure at paws of death. lngand ald Germany have many interests that eonaet, and the twe peoples are not fond of each other. But there will be no -war between them whiie their destinies remain in the hands now guidipg them. This may safely be assumed; and so whether there are many or few topics discussed between the kaiser and thd king on this occasion, the outsde world would appear to have small cause fox worry. The map nowhere is likely to be rad ically changed through any alliance, formal or understood, between the two govern ments. The Minority Leader. The speculation about the leadership of the minority in the next House all playi about southern men. Not a northern mar is mentioned, although Mr. McClellan of New York would fill the place with ability. But as the south puts forward no aspirants for the presidency or the vice presidency, it is probably but fair that this congres sional honor should go to her uncontested. It is to be said, too, that the men whose names are now canvassed in connectior with it are very worthy and capable. Mr. Richardson of Tennessee is conservative and experienced. Mr. Williams of Missis sippi is a good debater and a good parlia mentarian. Mr. Underwood of Alabama if alert and resourceful, while Mr. De Armoni of Missouri Is criticised on but one score His tongue is sharp, and he enjoys an en gagement where such a weapon is effective This office will be of more importance it the next House than It has been in the present one. The maneuvers in the Housi on the eve of a presidential campaign cal: for skill on both sides, and the minorit3 leader fully equal to his place frequenti has some excellent opportunities to seer4 for his side. Asia will probably derive more pecuniar3 b(nefit from the visit of President Schwal of the steel trust than America will gel from that of the Crown Prince of Siam. logo If Herr Most said some of the thing, that some college professors stand sponsor. for, he would be regarded as a volcano it the eve of an eruption. Possibly that defeated Pennsylvania coa: operator would rather be a baron than f congressman anyhow. Mr. Hanna says he is not a presidentia candidate. But there is no telling what hr may become. SHOOTING STABS. A Close Distinction. "Don't you dread the approach of win ter?" "No'ndeed," answered Mr. Erastus Pink ly. "V*ain' de approach dat bothers me it's de arrival." Mental Agitation. "What do you think of our new cook?" "I do hope she'll consent to remain," an swered young Mrs. Torkins. "I've been st busy worrying about what she might thini of us that I never stopped to think abou what we thought of her." The Surprised Statesman. A mighty speech he paused to frame, And zealously displayed it; And yet the world went on the same As if he'd never made it. Under Suspiciou. "No," said Mr. Bliggins; "I haven't an3 use for philosophers." "Why not?" "My idea of a philosopher is a man wh( pretends he enjoys hard luck." Limited Trust. "You have implicit confidence in tha man?" "Well," answered the cautious citizen "I'd trust him with any amount of money but I don't know that I'd give him acces, to my coal cellar." A Pace Track Dirge. Why should I bet I'pon a horse Who goeth 'round Upon the course? Were I to run, 'Tis plain to see, The horse would never Bet on me. The reason is, He hath a lot Of plain horse sense Which I have not. Here Too! From the Chicago News. The Danes seem to be like certain Chicage property owners. They will neither sell no: imp rove.
