THE EVENING STAB.
WASHINGTON. -FRIDAY ........ November 28, 1902. CROSBY S. NOYES.......... .Editor. THE EVENING STAR has a regular and per manent Family Circulation much nere than the combined circulatiom of the other Washington dailies. As a News and Ads. vertising Medium it has no competitor. 5"in order to avoid delays on accent of perseal absence, letters to TItE STAR sheuld not he addressed to any Individala with the office, but simply to TH1E STAR. er to the Editorial or Basiness DePatmc,ae. cording to tenor or purpose. The Color Line in Politics. The President's letter to an unnamed South Carolinian and Booker Washington's card to an Alabama newspaper, which ap pear In print today, have relation to the same general subject, and are communica tions of general interest. The President could not with credit to himself have withheld his views, and he could not have expressed them more clearly or frankly. There has been a persistent ef fort for some months to misrepresent ard embarrass him on the question of the color I line in polities, and it was time for him to put an end to so shabby an industry. That he has done so with this letter we may easily believe. It will not be possible in fu ture for the so-called "Lily Whites" of the south to claim him as an indorser of their policy, or for the colored men of the north to charge him with an abandonment of the principle of the equality of all men before the law. ie stands, by his own express declaration, for what his party has stood since the electorate was enlarged: and neither local prejudice on the part of his political opponents nor shiftiness on the part of a few members of his own party will affect his attitude. 1 Mr. Washington likewise has been the victim of some misrepresentation, and he replies to it in good temper. Why should he not when requested give his views on the subject of fit men for public office? How loes that militate against his useful ness as an educator? He is a resident of the south, he possesses unusual facilities for gauging the temper of the people there, both white and black, and nobody doubts 'his desire to help promote the general good. Fancy such a man, when asked his opinion about this appointment or that, hanging back and intimating to the President of the United States that he ought not to be con sulted about such matters! Properly enough. Mr. Washington when consulted has given his best opinion to the President, and there is nothing whatever to show that his recommendations have in any case been otherwise th-an worthy of acceptance. The President, with every reason, flouts the stupid old cry of negro domination. He knows, as every other intelligent man does, that the negroes will never dominate any section of the country, and that to with hold from the worthy of the race an en couraging recognition of their advancement would be to commit an act of shortsight edness and Injustice. Willing as some re publicans are to commit that act he refuses. Xr. Chamberlain ABoat. Mr. Chamberlain has departed for South I Africa provided with "al the comforts of t home." The ship's table, if we may believe I the reports, will not lack for good things. t Meat on the hoof. and the finest brands of I wines in abundant quantity are mentioned t In the list of supplies. His cabin is most elegantly fitted up. The jokers as yet have I not been severe on him, but they may at- I tend to his case later. For much less, Gen eral Miles. at the -b, ginning of the Spanish war. paid a heavy penalty. From Mr. Dooley down, the wits with us had great e fun with him. Royalty itself, we are told, t was never afloat with arrangements for c personal comfort more complete than those I made in Mr. Chamberlain's behalf. C Nevertheless, Mr. Chamberlain Is not a gourmand or a sybarite, but a hard-work- r ing man who takes pride in his middle-class extraction and puts on nothing of what the English call "side." His mission to South Africa is of a very practical kind, and when he lands he will be overwhelmed with busi ness. Inspecting a waste with a view of making it blossom again; conferring with the leaders of people who have been taught t to regard him as a sort of monster; confer ring with his own people, who fancy they know enough to shape his action and will try to do so-these activities make up a pro- t gram which does not suggest a downy couch or an elaborate bill of fare. If he is to enjoy himself at all therefore during hisr absence from home it must be while he is on the way to the cape. The state In which Mr. Chamberlain tray els goes of course with his great office. Thet trip is in every way unusual. It has not happened before that an English official of his grade and consequence has set out on a mission of good will toward a conquered people, and the purpose in the elaborate preparations is probably to impress the stranger and at the same time compliment him. A special commissioner In shirt sleeves and living on ham sandwiches would be buta coldly received even by so plain and primi tive a people as the Bloers. And let us hopes that the missIon may be successful, andi that as th. rasilt of It South Africa under ' the B3ritish flazg may become one of the most prosperous sections of the British em pire. , c There is a bigger fortune awaiting the man who can perfect a coalless heating 1 system by utilizIng those wasted flames of Soufr!ere and Pelee for American consump- I tion sthan is ahead of either Marconi or Santos-Dtu mont. It is hoped in the interest of propriety that the twxt Congress will not be compelled I to taket' ip the public~ discussion of anotherc .-m S domeistic aifairs. 1 Philadelphia's Scandal, N-a wi .rk has no corner on municipal n5-uk din , as certain court proceedings inc Philade-lphia clearly disclose, If these- e-ec cent dev~elopmients are reliable Philadelphi-a I Is in rnee d of a Lexow inquiry and of the cons, .1n.nt purging of all ranks of the city administration. The story is a most un plea'-nrt on. The German government, learning that a traffic in human beings for Immoral1 pur-poses was in progress, with Germany as a source of supply and certain Ameriran cities, notab)ly Philadelphia, as the receivers, made such representations to this governme-nt and through it to the mu nicipal auithorities of those cities that they could not be ignored. In Philadelphia raids were 'rd-red upon certain conspicuously disorderly places, and complete proof of the charges brought by the German govern ment was adduced. The cases thus brought to court have not yet been tried. Mean while, important revelations have resulted, causing turmoil in official circles in Phila delphia. in one of the preliminary hearings a lawyer for the defense, feeling perhaps that his case was hopeless, sought to carry down with his clients the police department, which, he charged, had been at least by negligence fostering the vile tradfic. His questions were answered by policemen . whose beats included the district in ques tion in a manner to amount to a confession not only of a corrupt connection between the estgblishments and the police force, but of a grosis fraud on the suffrages of thei people. The details of the accusation are not yet compaetely stated, but enough has appeated to indicate that voters were regis tered from these houses and were allowed to cast their ballots, despite the fact that they did not live there, and that the houses ware weli known to the police as being of a cbarauter to proclude the possiblty of being the residences of the imen registered. rhus. the fraud has romMed. Two police leutenants have already been dismissed Irom the force for neglect of duty, despite :helr hints of possessing proof that they were Inactive In the premises only by orders Irom "higher up.' Apart from the matter )f the illegal registrations, the case reads mxactly like that of New York In the dark lays when Dr. Parkhuret was collecting his tvidence upon which the Lexow- inquiry was based. It presents the spectacle of )rothels permitted to flourish without con ,ealment or pretense of respectability under :he very eyes of the police and In the face )f statutes condemning them as Illegal; of rambling houses doing a thriving buiness n the same open fashion: of dives of the worst character paying tribute to the police Luthorities. The German government has lone more than to take the first step to ward putting an end to this foul traffic. It as perhaps opened up a scandal which will ea too flagrant for Pbriladelphia to tolerate. [he evil will not be cured by sacrifeing the mbordinate agents of the police corruption. rhe need is of an investigator who will not iesitate to aim at the very top of the whole rile conspiracy. Kansas and Popuasm. The Emporia, Kansas. Gazette, a republi !an newspaper, approves of the decision of ;enator Harris to be known In future as a lemocrat, and adds: "There is not in all the Congressional DI ectory of the United States the word pop ilist. This is as it should be. Harris has )een In the democratic caucus and has worked with the democrats for five years. Vhere is nothing opprobrious In the name. Phe democrats will nominate Gorman or 1lll for the presidency, and the populists will vote for him. The fdlows who see iothing good in the republican party will iot hesitate to line up as democrats. There will be no people's party name on the offl .ial ballot next year unless It is put on by )etition, and If the people's party nomi iates a candidate for President in 1904 the lectors In Kansas can't go on the ballot inless by petition. And this Is the end of he stirring days of Singin' Jones of Butler, tnd Dunkin' of Punkin, and Levi Dum >auld, and the great mob of shirt-tail rang rs, who rose up and threatened to eat up Wall street raw without pepper or salt." The disappearance of the western popu ists affords, indeed, an interesting theme. light in ten of them had come out of the -epublican party, and while they lived they nade themselves 'heard far and near. They were very confident that the policies of that )arty were responsible for the hard condi Ions to which the farmers were then re luced. and they held quite as earnestly that iot until those policies were changed would orn grow in. abundance again and prices ,o up. They set themselves to work, there ore, to supplant the republican party with Ln organization of their own. They achieved some local successes at the oolls. They' sent some strong and notable nen into retirement. Mr. Ingalls was a Ictim. They introduced some strange men o the national notice. But they did not In luence nationl- legislation In the slightest. Zot a policy they adioc'aed was Indorsed y Congress.- -They contributed somewhat o the overthrow of the republicans in 1802, ut when that party returned to power In 897 the policies to which the populists had o strenuously objected were put in force gain, and they have been In force ever Ince. Strangest of all to relate, however, Is the act that under those policies the farmers ave greatly prospered, and are now among he most contented men in the land. They ave lifted their mortgages and established ank accounts, and the gold standard and rotection no longer have any terrors for hem. But it is a little early to predict, as this Cansas paper does, what will take place In 904. The friends of either Mr. Gorman or 1111 in the east would be glad to share this Cansas confidence as to the narrowing own of the fight for the democratic prest lential nomination. As they see the situa Ion, there are other strong men in the quation, and the platform is not at all [kely to attract any man who ever advo ated cheap currency, or insisted that the 'overnment would be well employed lending aoney on ripe crops or fat cattle. * so General Miles on Tour. General Miles continues to receive very ordial attentions from both the civil and he military authorities In the Philippines. 'hey are not to be suspected of heaping oals ot fire on his head. He was severe on hem last winter, and figured for several nonths as the star witness of the anti mperialists In the efforts to make the kmerican record in the archipelago the asts of a national campaign. But he knows nore on the subject now, and not unlikely nay return from his trip the eulogist, and io longer the detractor, of his fellows In trms. The whole matter Is clearing up for verybody except a few fussy people whose nterest in public affairs is always eccen ric. They are holding out, and In the end nay persuade themselves that they are liv ng under a government of sham and ruelty. But they are certain not to make ny converts to their view, or do any dam ege to anybody but themselves. Manna does not fail from heaven nowa .ays In conspicuous quantities, but occa lonally hunger is satisfied from the same urprising source. Tuesday night, while everal score of families In Reading, Pa., rere wondering how to provide the 'hanksgiving turkeys, three flocks of wild eese flew over the city, and, beIng blinded y the glare from the iron furnaces, be ame confused and struck the walls of big uildings, breaking their necks. In the norning dozens of the birds were found on he ground, and yesterday they graced the ables of tiie poor, who gave t-hanks In teartier fashion than usual for unexpected leasings. It is feared that Coney Island is in dan er of being totally destroyed by the en-. roachment of the sea, and no churches are felt called upon to offer prayer for Its reservation.

I I I President Palma In doing his best to get Cuba around to a full dinnr pall basis. Kr. Hewit and D.mocracy. Mr. Hewitt of New York and Mr. Bryan are at last In agreement on one point. It tras been Mr. Bryan's contention since his lefeat in 186 that those mnen calling them ,elves democrats who contributed to It were 'io longer democrats. He has stated his :ase In a variety of ways, but always so as to mnake his meaning entirely elear. Mr. Elewitt, the friend of Mr, Tilden, and long a iemocratic leader In New York. osposed Kr. Bryan In beth the letts eamsIgu== for the prealdme=CF anf inw -in reen to a question, frankly confeuses that he is met present day democracy, and ares that he has no thought of afiatin with the party again until It shakes off Bryanism and returns to the old faith. But what would become of Mr. Bryan In that event? Would he be any longer a democrat? And, if Aot, where would he seek shelter? I 0i Booker T. Washington declares that he Is not a politician. But he should remem ber that politics sometimes gets hold of a man before he knows It. I0D. Speaker Cannon is a jovial personage, but that will not prevent him from laying down the law. "Csar" Reed was something of a merry wag himself. The kaiser's conduct with reference to the late Herr Krupp shows that he can be as emphatic in his friendship as in his en mities. I I - President Roosevelt refuses -to introduce the Idea of white and colored compartments for office holders under his administration. 000 No doubt the "good trusts" are trembling for fear It will be found necessary to anni hilate them along with the bad. --0 40 No doubt a large number of n6w theories are ready to be uncorked In the coming Congress. SHOOTING STARS. Prudence. "I suppose you would like to say or do something that will live in history." "Well," answered Senator Sorghum, 'there are so many things concerning which I should prefer to keep history uninformed that I guess I'd better not take any chances on trying to break in." Changed Circumstances. Now discontent has seized my soull My hopes are all a wreck. I used to buy a ton of coal I'm thankful for a peck. Only Diversion. "I hope you do. not descend to malicious gossip," said the woman with serious ideals. "No." answered Miss Cayenne. "No one that I know gossips maliciously. They do It merely for fun." Warmed Over. It comes as hash, it comes as stew; It's stay is still deferred. For days to come no doubt we'll view That same Thanksgiving bird. The Voice of Experience. "Do you think that the stage exercises an elevating Influence?" "Yes," answered Mr. Stormington Barnes. "I don't know of anything better than the classic drama for developing the noble vir tures of patience and humility." The Winter Wind. Whee you! Hear the breeze Rushing through the trembling treesi Rattling at the window pane, Silent now, then up again Trying every bolt and bar; If the casement be ajar, HQw he struggles to get In Like some plundering sprite of sinl How he snarls when held at bay* Longing for his living prey; How he shrieks with laughter wild When he sees some half-clad childl Whee you!

Plor so fiercely comes the chill With its bitter, biting thrill; There is scarcely time to heed Those who feel the pinch of needl Scarcely time to realise That the last red ember dies. Like the faith that flickers low In some home of want and woe. Strikers Get an Injunction. From the Baltimore Sun. There is a very interesting situation at Vineland, N. J.. where the Glass-Bottle Blowers' Association, now on strike, has got out an injunction to.restrain the Jonas Glass Company of Minetola "from inter fering with the business of the strikers." 4 The court has granted an order to "show 4 cause," etc., on the complaint of the strik era that the company has tried to Intiml date and drive away the labor association and its offleers when they sought to meet incoming trains bringing non-union work men. This is turning the tables. An in junction Is objectionable when the other party gets it first, but the devil may be fought with fire. No Reason to Wait. From the New York Times. There is no reason why the canal under taking should waIt upon the slow resolution of the government of Colombia. We can very quickly find out what is In the Colom bian mind by announcing that after a given -and near-date we shalU give no further | consideration to the Panama route, but ' shall proceed at once to negotiate the4 necessary treaties with Nicaragua and4 Costa Rica.4 A Cause for Congratulation. From the Chicago Tribune. Grateful mention may be made here of the fact that a few footpads and burglars, surprised in the act, have gone permanent-4 ly out of the business during the year. 4 The Navy and Shipbuilding. From the New York Sun. - As an evidence of the impetus given to s'hipyards by the growth of the navy, it is to be noticed that eleven shipbuilding com panies and firms 'have asked for the plans and specifications of the armored cruisers Tennessee and Washington, recently au thorized by Congress. Several of the firms have not built any vessels for the navy; but if the usual large proportion of the firms that ask for plans shall submit bids, the choice of the winmer will be more difficult than hitherto, but it will be certain that the cruisers will be built properly, and that if skill can achieve it, they will be s euc cessful as their designers hope. Two Phases Presented. From the New York World. PresIdent Roosevelt's letter repudiating the Idea that he "would not appoint repui table and upright colored men to offiee when objection was made to them solely on account of their color" comes pat today with Booker Washington's reminder to his own people that they "will make a mistake if they seek to suoceed In life by mere po litical activity." Thus are presented two phases of the problem of color-abstract justice as seen by a white President of "all the people;" expedient conduct as judged by the wisest colored adviser of his own race. Xexico's InvitAtion. From the Mexican Herald (City of Mezico). - The Washington Star observes that our proposition that Cuba come -into the Mexi can union is "coOl." That may be, but all the same the big, generous and hospitable Mexican republic is the right place for Dona Cuba. Here she would feel at home, and not be annoyed by empire-makers. Danger in Poiom. From the Philadelphia Inquker. It is lamentable that neither repeated warning nor sad experience seems to have the desired effect of makring' the ordinary person oautlous in the use of poisons. In the last few days three children have did presumably from taking poison that was carelessly left within their reach. One would suppose that such accidents would by this time have become almost impossi ble, ye6t they are constant1y recurring with a frequency that demlands flurther warning. If parents would learn to keep poisons in a place 'where they could not be reaebed by others there would be fewer accidents. It Is the old principle of famfilarity breed ing contempt.
