The President's reply to the formal notifl cation of his nomination at Chicago touches upon the different questions involved in the campaign, and in a very clear and candid way. His references to the tariff, to' the 1st hmian canal, to the situation In the Phil ippines and to capital and labor are in line with his own and his party's record. and will he quotable from every stump. He promises a letter a little later, but, however well it may be written, it cannot add great ly to the points covered by his deliverance. In his statement the President challenges the opposition upon the most important matter in controversy: "So long as the republican party is in power the gold standard is settled, not as a matter of temporary politicaj expediency. not because of shifting conditions in the production of gold in certain mining cen ters, but in accordance with what we re gard as the fundamental principles of na tional morality and wisdom." The reference here is to the so-called gold plank which the platform comaittee at St. Louis rejected by a vote of 35 to 15. That plank, it will be remembered. did not in dorse gold, per se, as the standard of value, but merely conceded that the money ques tion had for the time being been settled, owing to the enormous .discoveries of gold within the past few years. It was a sop thrown to the silverites on their quantita tive theory of money, but not enough to satisfy them; and between th.it and no ref erence to the money question at all Mr. Bryan and his friends chose the latter, and imposed their will on the committee and the 4'onvention. The Presidl nt puts the case for himself and his party in a way to show the broad different. between recognizing gold as the standard of value. to be maintained at all times and in all aircumstances. and recog nizing a standard which has recently been fortified by the success of prospectors and the industry of miners. And, in effect. he asks his opponents if. in the event of the falling off of gold dtscovery and mining in the near future. they are not committed to a revival of their old contention about the double standard on the lines of the Bryan agitation which shook the country in the campaigns of 18916 and 19011. Maybe Judge Parker will reply to this in his letter of acceptance. His brief telegram to the St. Louts convention does not settle his status In the distinction that the Presl dept draws, but leaves the impression that had the convention adopted the very thin plank offered by the gold men he would have said nothing. He protested merely against absolute silence. Hie did not urge a downright declaration for gold. Russia's Claims. One statement of Russia's position re garding her rights in the matter of sinking nerchantmen suspected of carrying contra band goods, based upon art official explana tion given at St. Petersburg, is as follows: "Russia maintains the right of her war ships to sink a neutral vessel carrying con traband when her papers show that she Is clearly subject to seizure and when cir cumstances render it impossible or danger ous to attempt to get her to a home port. and that in such cases liability for damages to the value of the ship is not admitted.' In other words, Russia ciairris the right to constitute herself sole judge of a ves sel's character, subject to no revision and no claims for damages. The official state ment goes further and specifies as follows regarding the contingencies In which it Is lawful-as Russia reads international law to sink such vessels: "When the prize is unseaworthy. in dan ger of recapture by the enemy or in the case of difficulty in getting the prize back to port, which might include inability to spare a prize crew, etc. In each case the commander must take off the ship's papers, crew and passengers before sinking the prize." Russia cannot possibly establish the doc trine that she can send forth a warship upon the high seas and sink ship after ship on suspicion on the sole ground that suffi cient men cannot be spared for prize crews to take the vessels into port. Such a policy would mean the devastation of neu tral commerce, for It is not to be expected that a small squadron could spare enough men to man all the merchanitmen it might encounter in the course of a cruise through the thickly freque'nted waters of the trade rAutes. C'ertainly if the right to sink rather than escort to port Is c'laimed with it must go the responsibility for the act. It is ex tremely doubtful if one out of a hundred merchnantmen in the Pacific tod-sy Is solely laden with contraband. 'There may be a large number of vessels carrying some con traba.'nd. but with such goods wiil be a far a greater proportion of other cargoes, shipped innocently by owners whose rights cannot be detroyed merely because of their ques tionabile association. The owners of the inoffensive cargo on the Knight C'om mande'r. whatever contraband she may have carried, cannot be' robbed 'of all their values on tihe score of Russia's assumption that the ship carried war goods for Japan. Even if Mr. Bryan is compelled to con tent himself with appearing at intervals of four years. he will still have something of an ad'antage over the seven-year locust. President Rosevelt feels quItg conildent of his ability to look out for his own fu ture and Mr. Root's as well. Utilize the Public Grounds. Such e'xc*llent results have flowed from the efforts of citizens to establish and main tain playgrounds for ('hidren on private grounds in this city that hearty indorse ment will be given by the community to Col. liromwell's recommendations in his annua: report regarding the utlisation of the gov'ernment reserv4tions for this pur pose. The publi(' parks are primarily for the reereition and health of the people. Secondarily they are intended for esthetic ends. They psrify the air and afford space for re-t and refreshment. They' could be put., therefore, to no better purpose, wIthin proper limits, than to be utilized for the recreations of the children who are other wise dependent upon private charities for their playgrounds. It is eminently desirable that the children be kept out of the streets. They should be encoturaged to play -at games which will develop them physically anid keep them morally healthful as well They 'should be drawn as far as possible out of the slums. where so many have their homes. int. the purer air and Inorb wholesome atmnosphere of the open spap~es- it is far better that tie work be conducted byt the mnunicipality than relegated to the enterprise of. citiserts whose surplus mnea are st'eady well ab sorbed by the deutanda of charity. Col. Brosnwell well-says that titere is no other way is erhich a samall inouat can ~be ei pesdei which will give greater pleasure or do more good or result In more lastlag bee edt than money appeped.a t fitting up and maintaining playgrewnd4. With the $. of public money wdeb be suggests as as appropriate beginning in this line much could be done toward the establishment of well-equipped public rec reation grounds, with proper supervision to prevent abuses. One of the fnest fea tures of Bestoa's municipal equiment to the public playground on the space known as Charlesbank, where are a running track, a base ball field, a full outfit of swings. parallel bars and other items of outdoor gymnasium equipment. The grounds are thronged with boys during evety day of the season. They are under the watchful eye of carefully selected attendants, who ad vise them In the use of apparatus and ad just - their differenees and stimulate. their games. The best of order prevails, and the children, many of whom come from the poorer homes In the immediate vicinity, are immeasurably benefited, both physically and morally. Washington could do far better than Boston, having more public ground avail able for such a purpose. The great Potomac Park. reclaimed from the river and dedi cated by law to the recreation of the people, lies fallow for such uses. There could be established an outdoor gymnasium capable of accominodatiing a thousand children of all ages, engaged In. all the sports. Wi;h $3,000 such a beginning. could easily be made as to persuade the legislators that here lies an opportunity for doing the greateut good with the least expenditure. Chairman Taggart. After a vain search for a man of national reputation, the democrats have chosen Thomas Taggart of Indiana to conduct their campaign. Mr. Gorman was first choice, Mr. Sheehan-second, and Mr. Cam pau of Michigan third. All excused them selves from service. Mr. Taggart sought the place. He has a local reputation as.a "hustler," has been mayor of Indianapolis, and. as his friends decidre, always fights to win. He possesses a comfortable. fortune, acquired in the business world, and if Judge Parker succeeds, and the country, as after the victory of 1892, again goes upon a soup kitchen basis, Mr. Taggart will be a good man to have in the forefront. He began life in a restaurant, and is the proprietor of two of the largest and most prosperous hotels in Indiana. On the part of the democrats, however. this is going to be a captains' battle. The territory to be fought for will be divided up. Captain Hill will look out for New York, Captain Gorman for Maryland, Captain Jatfes Smith. Jr., for New Jersey, Captain E. C. Benedict for Connecticut. Captain Davis for West Virginia. Captain Hopkins for Illinois. and Captain Wall for Wiscon sin. The south Is expected to look out for herself. In this way Commander-in-Chief Taggart will not be overworked. He ought to find plenty of time to visit the outposts and receive reports, it he gives no orders. as to what is going on. One of the reasons given for pressinj the place on Mr. Gorman was that he stands so well with those capitalists of New York who are opposed to Mr. Roosevelt. With him In charge they would br willing, it is said, to finance the cam paign upon a most liberal scale. Still there is no occasion to suppose that the democrats will be stinted. Mr. Belmont alone should be good for a fat subscription. He is a rich man in his own right and as the American agent of the Rothschilds is a power in Wall street. He was one of the Parker managers at St. Louis and will be a man of influence at the White House in case of democratic suc cess. Like Mr. Hill, he is effacing himself for the moment, but only to humor certain locel prejudsices. He is in close touch with F,sopus.. and will be active in his way in the campaign. The fact that Judge Parker did not ex etcise his righ-t of selection after the decll naton, of the eftrong men, is 1no- reason to suppose that the committee's seledtion was a matter of indifference to him. He and Mr. Taggart are likely to work very cordi ally together. That Yarn About Mr. Davis. The story that Mr. Davis is contemplat ing matrimony makes him indignant. We see by this how long the gentleman has been out of politics. He should simply have been amused. The fakirs have but started with him, and they paid him a compliment by addressing themselves to a subject of tenderness and sentiment. If provoked they may charge their tactics and give him cause for real unhappiness. He will be in the limelight for three months, and has small notion of the num ber and variety of the intentions and per formances that may be ascribed to him by industrious campaigners in that time. On still another ground he might safely have left the indignation in this case to the lady, who promptly voices it. Mr. Davis, in his twenty-odd years of retirement, has forgotten some of the burdens that a public man must not only bear but appear to relish. Judge Parker probably thinks he is at least justified in holding on to his present position until he has been formally noti fled of his nomination. It might not be a bad Idea to provide Russian naval officers with text books on International law relating to seizures of contraband suspects. Chicago is perhaps deriving some satis faction from reports that "'the Pike" at St. Louis is not as gingery as the Midway Plaisance was. It looks as if the Japanese had thor oughly mastered Kuropatkin's curves, but the Russians refuse to put another man in the box. Mr. Thomas Lawson is subject to the suspicion which always attaches to a man who shows an Inclination to peach on his pals. Mr. Davis and Mr. Elkins seem confident of their ability not to let political differ ences cause a family quarrel. Russia may make a mistake in not con fining its carelessness to the sinking of its own ships. The meat strike will come pretty near driving 'the "don't worry" clubs out of business. Dangerous lriends,. These are the days when it is necessary to choose well the companions for a sum mer outing or picnic or ezcursioa. For the fool is abroad In the land and the fool killer is overworked and cannot attend to all the cases that require his attention. There is, for instance, the pian who -rocks the boat in order to hear the women scream. He in persistent. He wfll not learn the ways of wisdom. .Shun him after the first experience. Then there is the nov ice who thinks he knows all"about sailing and insists upon taking his friends Eut on the water. He has no conception of the treacherous nature of the element to whIch he entrusts other lives than his own. He wili puUl the wrong -sheet in emergency, turn the tiller. the wrong way, or hoid on to his canvgs long after the skies have warned him of the necessity to reeft Es chew hip compapy and his Invitatieps .as soon as he has prove his Incompetence.

Tbe automobllst without judl ment and mleted- with the speed crase is another of t2aindsummer lures to danger and perhaps death. He loves to fii up his machine with friends and scoot out into the,country. taking long chances at every turn and crossing. He feels peLectly com petent. but he fags to realise the extreme ly delicate nature of his apparatus and the heavy responsIbiUty he assumes when he speeds at the rate of twenty-five or thirty miles an hour or more over imperfect reads. It is the course of wisdom to de cfine all such invitations unless one is sure of the capacity and shill and good jtulgniet of the ehauffeur. The Ideal condition for the musician would be to rank as a laboring man when the question of importing players by can tract comes up and as as artist when sal aries are being arrdnged. It Is remarkable to note how many prom inent democrats have to be introduced be fore they can claim acquaintance with the presidential nominee. I;ichard Croker 'expects to visit New York. He -will find no cause to complain that Tammany has not deurished. in his Some of the democrats would like to bor row a republican phrase and stand pat on Judge Parker's telegram. SHOOTING STARS. A'*odematsi "Why," asked the teacher, "did Nebu chadnessar eat grass?" And after a silence the small boy from Chicago made answer: "Maybe there was a beef strike in Babylon." The Candidate's Declaration. "I seek to benefit your lot, I trust you'll aid my quest. You drop a ballot in the slot And I will do the rest." A Phase mxplained. "Father," said the small boy, "what do they mean when they say that people op erate on margins in the stock market?" "My son," was the answer, "it generally means that they are being kept on the ragged edge" "De trouble 'bout superstition." said Un cloe Eben, "is dat It keeps a man do pendin' on good luok dat nebber happens or else skyart of hahd luck dat fails to show up." Exceptional. "That was a remarkable dwoning acci dent," said the cold-blooded man. "In what respect?" "None of the papers state that the victim was a good swimmer." "Sunday Yornin'." When Sunday mornin' comes around The bell up on the hill Gives forth a sweet an' peaceful sound, And then all else is still. 'Most everything seems heavenward bound When Sunday mornin' comes around. The daisies whitenin' the ground. Their heads is bendin' low, The roses bow with grace profound, As breezes gently blow. The week with joy complete Is crowned, When Sunday mornin' comes around. The Democratic Chairman. - From the Philadelphia Ledger. The democratic national committee does not regard the approaching campaign very seriously; it estimates it at the Toni Tag g4rt size-that is to say, it concedes. that the election, of Judge Parker to the presl dency and the return of the demqgr'atic party to national ascendency is a matter ranking importance with the election of an auditor for Marion county, Ind., or, say, a mayor of the city of Indianapolis. Those feats scarcely remarkable in themselves, hardly heretofore considered as mark!ng a man.for national leadership of a party-Tom Tag gart has performed. He has never done anything bigger. Never trusted with the management of a state campaign, those contests in Indiana in which his somewhat primitive ideas were allowed to influence the methods employed by his party have always ended in d!saster. A Queer Scheme. - From the Wheeling Inteltligencer. A Congregational minister in Milwaukee is said to have hit upon a novel scheme for building up his church. By way of providing means for replenishing the treas ury, he has sold to merchants advertising privileges In the church building. Some business mnen pay in cash and others by entering into contracts to bring a specified number of fairly well-to-do citizens to church before the collection box is passed around. While it is an undisputed fact that better churches cannot he maintained with out pecuniary aid, it would seem that it were better to have no houses of worship than to have them supported in this man ner. In a church of the character of the Milwaukee congregation there can be-'very little of spirituality or reverence when such methods are resorted to to sustain it. It is not only sacrilegious but impious. While there is greater liberalism in religion to day than formerly there are enough old fashioned Christians left to condemn any such departures as those noted. Chicago Nailing Behind. From the Boston Herald. What is the matter with Chicago? A growth, according to the new directory, of but 10,000 in a year Is not up to the usual Chicago power with figures. At this rate it will take ten years to obtain an addi tion of 100.000 to the city census, and a hundred years to gain 1,000,000. SomethIngr must have happened to the windy city by the lake. Is it an epidemic of race suicide, an emigration of workingmen seeking jobe or a failure to attract persons in search of a fortune? Demnocracy. From the Portland Oregonian. From one extreme to the other the dem ocratic party has now gone-from utter ance of the most radical doctrine to a con servatism so cautious and cold that you cannot tell whether the party has any pol Icy or not. It makes no positive declara tion on any subject. The platform enun ciatesn no policy, for the party has none. Its whole effort is querulous opposition. What a Contrastl From the Chicago Chronicle. Aqcording to a journalistic admirer, Judge Parker's letter of acceptance will be "ideal in its frankness, openness and clearness." If it is It will be markedly in contrast with the judge's attitude during the last six months. Quiet Taste. From the Milwaukee Sentinel. With advancing years King Edward is developing quieter tastes in the matter of appareL. At. Ascot he wore "a blue -frock coat, a purple tie, white gaiters and a, red flower"-an almost sombre ensemble. Nat a Uspeater. From the chieneo Jemerst.
