THE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON. MONDAY ....... November 17, 1909. CROSBY S. NOYES..........ditor. THE EVENING STAR has a regular and per manent Pamily Circulation much more than the combiaed circulation of the other Washington dailies. As a News and Ad vertising Medlam it has no competitor. IIn order to avoid delays on account of personal absence, letters to THE STAR should not be addressed to any Individual connected with the ofMce, but simply to THE STAR, or to the Editorial or Business Departients,ias cording to tenor or purpose. Mr. Watterson Explains. IfenrY WVatterson, as The Star requested and expwo'ed, has explained his recent com plimen- to Mr. Gorman and replied to the interrogatory respecting the state of his own tariff pulse. And yet, with 411 defer ence to a man who is usually very frank, and always clear in his deliverances, It must be said that Mr. Watterson on this occasion is not quite up to his own high mark. The Star is accused of having erroneously interpreted the compliment to Mr. Gorman. It was not Mr. Watterson's purpose, he says. to declare for the Maryland leader for the democracy's standard-bearer in 1904. Whatever his purpose may have been, if Mr. Watterson will turn to the editorial from which The Star quoted, and then read the comments on It which were widely pro voked, he will see that The Star's view was the popular view. The Star's surprise was very generally shared. With Mr. Bryan down in Nebraska, Mr. Johnson down in Ohio. Mr. Hilt down in New York, and Mr. Pattison down in Pennsylvania, Mr. Wat terson. upon a too hasty reading of the Maryland election returns, which showed that Mr. Gorman was down also, hailed the Marylander as the hope of the party. A little shaken maybe by the disappointing re siAts of tho campaign, he expressed himself with a fervor born more of discouragement than reflection. He wanted a leader so badly, he was virtually offering his king dom for one. Now as to Mr. Gorman"s tariff views, and especially with regard to his attitude to ward Mr. Cleveland's famous tariff mes sage. Mr. Watterson's opinion is not the ac cepted one in political circles where the subject has been carefully canvassed. The Kentucky editor would appear to believe that when Mr. Gorman presented himself at the St. Louis convention in 1888 with a tariff plank repudiating the tariff message he was acting merely as Mr. Cleveland's representative. He was far more than that. He had had more to do with bringing Mr. Cleveland around to that position than any other man in the democratic party. At that time he was much the stronger man of the two, and had Mr. Cleveland's entire confi dence. That free trade tariff message had filled Mr. Gorman, Mr. Whitney, Mr. Ran dall and the other democrats of the pro tecti,n school with fear and but poorly con cealed indignation. They began at once to break the force of it, and Mr. Gorman's mission z- St. Louis was their last card. That was to be played with Mr. Gorman's conf,ssed skill, and was expected to sweep the stak,s. But Mr. Watterson himself trumped it, with a free trade speech of con sistenwy and by defeating Mr. Gorman for chairman of the Platform committee, and so Mr. (,orman returned to Washington empty-handed. In that way Mr. Cleveland stood in the campaign, not where Mr. Gor man wanted him to stand, but where Mr. Watterson forced him to stand. Mr. Wat terson at St. Louis defeated not only Mr. Cleveland. who was feeling his way along, but Mr. Gorman, then as now one of the masterf il men in his party, and a protec tionist in principle. No, if the democratic party has in mind another campaign on the free trade issue it cannot afford to nominate Mr. Gorman for President. because he is not in sym pathy with that policy. It cannot afford to take Mr. 'l veland again, because he fum bled and stumbled and made a mess of his two opporiinitics. it cannot afford to take Mr. Bryan. because he is accepted by the country as the apostle of an unsound cur rency. N-d The Star add-and it does so respectiflly-that the man for such a con test do,s not live a thousand miles from Ken:u,ky, and if nominated would give the oppositmi a run for its money? --- -40 0 The Handwriting Expert. Never lfore was the ituck of the hand writing exp.rt. so calld, at such a low ebb as today. with the celebrated Molineux trial elosd. Since that case was finished, ur-ir c:reunmstnces castIng serIous reflec tlrns ont theu value of this sort of te-stimony in crim!l:al cases, the court of appeals of New Y rk state has rendered a decision which Mtill further increases the public dis trust of th!s method of proving legal propo sitions. The case in point turned upon the valbliy v a wil. The signature was ad nittd. but through it had been drawn a series of vertical lines of cancellation. One side rorit.rnded that the signer had himself drawn thr-m, the other that the cancellation had been dor.e by another without the knowie'dge of the signer. At the first trial expert witr:'eses swore that it- their judg mnent these. lines were the work of another than the signer. The will was admitted t pirobate on this authority, and on appeal to the t.ppellate' division of the eupreme court the. d+ cision was sustained. Bunt one jtdge s, pted from the judgment and de clared thatI such testimony was not only wortht.y. but positively dangerour. The court of appeals has reversed the court be low arnd sustained that dissenting judge, hol sding rhat it is manifestly absurd for men. howe vet- skilled in the microscopic ex aminatinr of handwriting. to swear to the id,nriy if th' hand which had made a series of mere straight lines. A nor. llpab!e ri luction of the case to absurdityc noud nit well be had. If such testimonv could be admitted as evidence there unr Hit t?ocb drawn around the field of the handwriting expert. In view of the- ma::y proved blunders which they have comn:nt.l their work is to be regarded to day .. la Ic better than systematic guess ing it. the spectacle which shakes all pu ti :dence in them is the ranging of expetr: .ag,ins t expert to swe-ar to dia mnetrica"yv opposite statements. So flexible 1w the~ '-nee" that it is now possible to pro;e ii y piropusitioni whatever from the eamre lremise or exhibit. Wh. 'u mi:rads have more business on hind thi int they can comfortably handle. it is lfilt to see why any of them shto. t. eI the necessity of combining to hd up ; rates. A project to increase fa cilii s uld appear to be more in keeping with :.' sI'uation. The Anti-Parlor Match Causade. New Yosrk ha.s started a crusade against the 'parlor" match as a measure of protec tion fronm fire. An ordinance lias been adopted prohibiting the sale of this article at retail after January 1. and now the deal oe in that commodity are trying to get -rid of their stoeks before the limit expires, or to s4eur. an extension. The reason for the prohibit :1 is that the easily ignited paror match Is t.e garded as a source of grave dan ge'. ('ases are en record to prove that it hass eauttod the death of ma'ny persons ar.d the destru.ction of great property values. The wooden stemn is easily snapped and tht heed c'f'on fliesa off. Usually it is immediate 1T found and destroyed to prevent the po3 Ubity of accidents. Often, hoirever, it is msteoeted njed some day along comes ai foot o wruah it into e, lase and 0, Gr rjeultz. MS eloth of women's skirts frequaejtly result. Again rats -tui the neglected match heads and gnaw them Into , bias. to communicate fire to carpets or waste, and so start the serlow deetroetten Of t property. Then, too, theme usatches with their crackling ignition have a fascination for children, who play with them with ter rible results. A large percentage of city b fires are from this cause, and the mortality roll is pitifully long. Two cases of the danger of the parlor 8 match are immediately at hand in the news v of today. In Baltimore Mrs. Vogelsang t stepped on 0 match and 'was burned to death before help could reach her. In Philadelphia little Michael Dunn found a dozen large boxes in the kitchen where he was playing and used them to build a toy house. Stepping on one of th,m the child accidentally set fire. to the large pile ad was burned to death. These are merely ex amples of similar fatalities constantly be ing reported, while the authorities of all p large cities agree that the match which will s ignite upon slight friction is responsible for the annual loss of millions of dollars. For the parlor match there are two sub- c stitutes at least, the old-fashioned sulphur < match. with its disagreeable odor, and the d safety match, which can be ignited only by striking on a special composition. Each has its disadvantages, but these are noth ing when compVjed with the danger of death and destruction which the uee of the friction match involves. Doubtless the general public, when the shocking cost w'hich it pays for its present convenience is made plain to it, will agree that it Is far better to exclude the dangerous parlor match from use. This is a reform which the local authorities might profitably con oider. 4 Ip The Virginia Suffrage. Now that the question of the constitu- n tionality 9f the Virginia constitution has F been taken into court let us hope for a final settlement of the whole case strictly upon Its ruerits and upon the broadest grounds. It is a question in which the whole country b is interested. No state in the. Union 'lives to itself. Each shares in the national obit gations and benefits, and each should be t held to a strict accountability in all mat- t ters relating to the national welfare as they may be affected by its Individual action. Virginia has disfranchised the negroes almost to a man. The act is not denied. That end was deliberately sought. As a result, on the 4th instant members of Con gress were elected in the state, with the electorate shorn of thousands of votes which under the Constitution of the United States should have been accepted and t counted. The question-raised therefore is, was that election legal? Shall the result stan' Shall Virginia be permitted to deny ' to a large part of her citizens the privilege of participating in local affairs, upon the allegation that they are incompetent to do so intelligently, and yet count those same citizens in her own voting strength in na tional affairs? r There can be no more Important question 1 than this. Nor is Virginia the only state where it applies. The same policy has been pursued elsewhere, and to such an extent In one other state at least as to have robbed election day of all interest except to a very few of those who are permitted to vote. The following press dispatch bears the New Orleans date line, and was sent out on the 8th instant: "Official returns from Mississippi and es timates from counties which have not sent in their returns yet show a total vote in that state of 21.625 for Congress, or at the rate of 2.703 votes to each congressman. X All the votes cast there were democratic." As this matter proceeds we shall probably 7 hear a good deal about the "bloody shirt," and all that trumpery gabble of local bosses ( and machine politicians. There Is of course no "bloody shirt" about it. The proposition is plain, and has for its object an act of justice and common sense. If the, south insists on materially limiting the sugrage within her borders she should be limited to I a like extent in her representative strength in Congress and in the electoral college. At I any rate, there is so much at stake, atid things are in so unsatisfactory a state, that ] a settlement of some kind by the highest tribunals, legislative and judicial, should A be pressed with all possible earnestness. There was never a better time for settling 1 a vexed question of general interest and national importance. King Leopold's Assailant. The wretch who tried to kill King Leopold declares that during a recent stay in Eng land he would have killed King Edward "but for the strong feeling of the English people in faiAor of the monarchy." This is not the talk of a real "red," but of a boast ful weakling. The anarchist worthy of his infamt' never takes account of what the people anywhere want. He assumes that the people do not know what is good for I them; that it is given to but a few choice spirits to determine so Important a matter. Their decision is that all governments are bad and should be abolished. Accordingly 1 a red will try to put an end to a despotism,. or to a limited monarchy, or to a republic, by killing the head of the state. He never takes the people into the account at all. suppose that miscreant at Buffalo had con sidered for a moment how well satisfied the American people were with their govern ment, and how deeply they loved the man who was then at the head of it. How easily his vile hand might have been restrained! The stage hands of Washington have been making considerable trouble for the man-] agers, with the result that -some of the comedies were considerably more original as viewed from behind the scene^s-than* as viewed in front. Profesor Garner is once more trying to interest the people in his theories of mon key conversation. There is, however, a deep-seated impression that even if a mon key could talk his remarks would no.t be worth iistening to. A flour trust has been organized on the Pacific coast with- a capital of $20,000,000. The west has no longer the right to point to monopoly as an eastern iniquity. - I I It is not likely that the lectures of college professors will have any more effect in fis couraging labor unions than they have had in disbanding the trusts. I I Tom L. Johnson insists thast it was John R. McL,ean's fault, and Mfr. McLean still de clines to apologize. David B. Hill's experience with the -po litical toboggan is the usual one of a slow climb aqd a swift slide. Unfair Strike Methods. The strike of the stage hands in the local theaters last w'eek fillustrated one of the features of the work of trades unions which alienates the symnpathlee of many people from those organizations. No notice was given of the intention of the men to4 leave the theaters and no grievances had been formulated. The managers of the vari ous houses of en.tertainmenit e requfred to adopt extreme emergency measures in order to prevent the collapse of' the even ing's performances, which would have caused-a heavy money loss- and a serious diminution in prestige, which is part of the capital of every theater. Such methods are unjustified from any poihit of view. The tiret rulq oC fair play in business would have required the givinlg of notice to permit consultatiop at least,' whanter .mlght-hive been the result. ,In moet lipes of i4d'idlt*F workingmen. when. ja,ehing e.crlii in their relations with' their .esployers, enish the job ir. hand, A.lthough occaMbonally' tools aro 'd'opyed at a 'int ,,Itce en4 the workler, walk eut a& th the iUgsg of the talklng Agitsat pmaiih.g it a union would quiekirt 0ba Ei isu et, ame elecuinstanm a- a ee eM robably- result.
