THE EVENING STAR.
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
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?

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

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

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
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
"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.

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.

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
