As a News ad Advertsg Uetatm ih has 'Za eorrs avold meays an Seosat of personal abhsaee, 3ltfsss to m STaM should ot be addressed to ay idtsal coneted with the oeo, but stely to TaU SaM, o to the mttodal or 3ss aess Departoamis, aese1ag' t tes1eM purpose., The Lamont Boom. The "mention" of Col. Lamont for gov ernor of New York leads to inquiries. He has no strength of his own, but is rated ac cording to the chief be serves. When he was Mr. Cleveland's confidential man he was sought by those who had business with Mr. Cleveland. And usually with success. because the two men were very fond of each other. But Col. Lamont is now the con fidential man of James J. Hill. Is it thought necessary to bring Mr. Hill into closer relations with the democratic cam paign? Would it be prudent to openly champion in that way the Northern Merger business? Mr. Hill has already declared for Judge Parker. and as matters now stand he will be a factor in the ttht. But the nomination of his lieutenant for the governorship of New York would, of course, increase his interest in the campaign, and open his heart and purse the wider to the democratic managers. The New York democrats, however, are already pretty close to the trusts and to other aggregated capital. Mr. Sheehan is an adviser of trusts. Cord Myer is a Sugar Trust man. Mr. McCarren is said to be a Stardard Oil man. August Belmont is the American ripresentative of the Rothachilds. And now to make James J. Hill's lieuten ant the candidate for governor, with all that that would imply, might be that last straw that would break the donkey's back. The other Hill-David B. Hill-would probably get along well enough with Col. Lamont in the governor's chair. They are good friends. Col. Lamont had never any part in the Cleveland-Hill feud. He was always the medium of communication when temporary truces were necessary. He ar ranged them, and did the work very well. But as Col. Lamont is no lawyer and no leader, and as David B. Hill is both, coupled with unusual executive ability, the latter would find no difficulty in domi nating the situation at Albany. He would soon have the reins in his own hands. Another risk in the nomination of Col. Lamont for so Important an office would be the comparison that would inevitably follow between him and his opponent. Mr. Root is the standard of the opposition, and the effort is to get him, or the men next to him in point of ability and impressive individuality. A quarter nag for the Derby distance against Eclipse would make no race. Rear Lights on Trolley Cars. There seems to be no excuse whatever for the accident on the Chevy Chase car line last night. which severely injured sev eral people, save the failure of the owning company to obey a plain requirement of a police regulation that all street cars shall carry rear signal lights. This rule forms part of section 28 of article 10, and is as follows: "Every street car in motion after sun down shall have two lights, one displayed at each end thernf." This plainly refers to every street car in service after dark, and as plainly means that the light shall show regardless of the condition of the current. The purpose is to prevent just such accidents as that of last night, which was caused primarily by the trolley pole of one car jumping from the wire and so interrupting the current and putting out the car's lights dependent upon them. In the darkness the motorman of the rear car, rapidly approaching, could not discern the car ahead, the conductor of which was trying to replace the pole and so give power and light to the car. On at least two of the suburban lines of the District each car carries an oil lan tern fastened by a bracket to the roof at the rear platform, showing red from be hind, thus forming a danger signal. If the trolley pole jumps the track the oil lamp continues to burn, and thus the car is in dependent of the electric current, so far as warning the motorman of another car ap proaching from behind. This practice is in strict obedience to the spirit and the let ter of the regulation, and has doubtless saved many accidents. On one of these hir... a few months ago the crew neglected to put the oil lamp in place, and during that evening a rear-end collision occurred in preisely similar circumstances to those obtaining last night, and the motorman of one of the cars was injured most severely. Just why the rule has not been obeyed on all the lines where the cars are during either all or part of the run dependent upon the overhead trolley for both illu ruination and power is for the companies t') answer to the Commissioners. And just why the Commissioners' representative whose business it is to inspect the street car system of the District has not long ago cailled official attention to this neglect is a question which the public would like to hmt~ answered. Fortunately the acci dent did not cause death, and now is the tIme, in view of this relatively insignifi cant result of neglect of the law, to insti tute a reform that will last. The fireworks and parade in welcome of Mr. Taggart at Indianapolis must not be construed as an effort on the part of that city to rival Esopus ini political importance. Russ'ia Is in danger of becoming so ex cited as to try to scuttle every ship that heaves in sight. A Remarkable Defanne of Law. It would seem to be the first duty of a steamboat owner to make his vessel perfectly safe, according to the judgment of those federal offieials who are required by the law to maintain a high standard of efficiency and equipment on the boats plying in the rivers and harbors of the United itates. But not so with the own ers of the steamer Grand Repr'tic of New York. sIster ship of the Slocum, which burned in the East river a few weeks ago and cost one thousand lives in conse quence of her totally inadequate equip ment. The Grand Republic was held by the government inspectors the other day for a thorough reinspection, the confi dence of the authorities in the sufBeciency of the regular spring inspection having been shaken by the disclosures as to the condition of the Slocum. Before this re inspection could be completed, however, the owners took the boat away fromo the dock. placing her in service on regular tri-daily trips to Coney Island, carrying many hundreds of passengers on each trip. The Interrupted inspection satisfied the oetcials that the beat was in bad shape. When they asked the captain for a fire drill the latter did not know how to give the signals calling for it, and had to be shown how to ring his bell and blow his whistle for the crew to take stations for that service, It took lye anates to get .water. All the old hoe sa the beat failed under pressur, . Out of 1.02 Uie preservers examined-there not bein time to examine them all--7V were con demned as worthless. They were at least twenty-seven years old. The corners could be broken off like biscuit. Some new preservers were found -and sank in the water under 'test with twenty-four pounds weight on them. After being in the water five minutes they weighed nine pounds apiece themselves, whereas they should have weighed two and one-half pounds. One of the lifeboats had three broken oars and another two. On the life rafts what appeared to be rivets preved on jnspection to be in many instances merely false heads soldered to the sur face to deceive the eye. Despite the fact that the steamer was in this condition, and perhaps would prove upon a full inspection to be even worse, her managers took her away from the inspectors and put her in service, as suming a frightful risk besides running counter to the federal laws. They are now subject to a fine of $500 for each trip. They contend that they have a right to run the vessel without submit ting to a reinspection, falling back on the certificate issued after the regular spring Inspection, which passed the boat as worthy of service. Unfortunately for them the statute gives the government the right to reinspect as often as may be necessary in order to enable the inspec tors to detect any neglect to comply with the requirements of the law. Another statute provides, as now amended, that the inspectors shall once a year at least. "or" upon the written application of the master or owner, carefully inspect the vessel. Thus there is ample ground for the reinspection, and there is no legal warrant for refusing to submit to it or to resist the authority of the federal offi cials. A summary example should be made of the owners in this case, to teach all other steamboat people that they can not with Impunity set the laws of state and of common precaution at defiance when human life is at stake. Sheehan. W. F. Sheehan. who, by lifting his finger might have been the chairman of the demo cratic national committee, has accepted the place of chairman of the national executive committee. It is a post of responsibility, and, as filled by Mr. Sheehan. is likely to be of greater importance than the post filled by Mr. Taggart. The Indianian will probably shake down into a hearty and breezy generalissimo, doing the standing around and the handshaking, while Mr. Sheehan, with an exceptionally good grasp of the eastern situation and a full knowl edge of eastern methods, directs the battle. The democratic party is fortunate in the arrangement. Mr. Sheehan, as a corporation lawyer of large practice, will counsel with his clients in the interest of democratic success. He knows the New-York ropes. His success at the bar grew out of his early success in politics and now in turn he will contribute of his success as a lawyer to politics. His hand has probably not lost its cunning. When Mr. Bryan took the party helm eight years ago Mr. Sheehan retired from partici pation In political matters. He moved from Buffalo to New York city and started upon a prosperous private career. His success, It is understood, has been marked, and but for frail health, he would now be in position to devote his whole time to politics again. The nomination of Judge Parker has re vived his interest in the game, and we shall soon see a specimen of his quality as a player. It is remarkable that all of the demo cratic roads in New York lead to David B. Hill. He not only writes platforms and names candidates, but trains managers. Mr. Sheehan is one of his pupils-maybe his brightest pupil. As he himself is consid ered Mr. Tilden's brightest pupil, Mr. Shee han has profited most by his instructions. Judge Parker is another Hill pupil. And scattered here and there throughout the state are a number of politicians who have learned all they know from the sage of Wolfert's Roost. It is Hill everywhere. Turn in any direction, and there is the man or one of his shadows. Eliminate Mr. Hill and the fruits of his labors, and there would be precious little left of the New York democracy. There are New York democrats who try to shut their eyes to this fact. It is most unwelcome to them, and just now, in the interests of harmony, Mr. Hill-with prob ably a smile on his face-is keeping as much as possible in the background. But he is there nevertheless, leading alike the willing and the reluctant. Mr. Fairba=ks. The response of Mr. Fairbanks to the notification of his nomination for the vice presidency was in the key of his char acter and public expectation. He stands in our affairs for conservatism, clear headedness, conviction and grasp. He knows his subjects and how to discuss them. His words are not questioned in any quarter. In ability, in temperament, in training he has measured up to the full requirements of the Senate, and no doubt exists anywhere that if called by the peopl.e to the office of Vice President he will fill it with great success. He makes it clear that he is in full sympathy with his party on all of the current is sues. and that he considers the carrying forward of its policies as essential to the continued well being of the country. The address, like that of Mr. Roosevelt of kindred nature at dagamore Hill, .Is a document well worth his party's while to circulate. An actress Is alleged to have been mis taken for Mrs. Maybrick on shipboard. Mrs. Maybrick may avoid publicity herself, but she cannot prevent the free advertiser from becoming industrious. The democratic candidate has not been before the public prominently enough to justify the use of the word Parkerism. Another summer is almost over and Prof. Langley and Santos Dumont still take the cars when they want to go anywhere. If New York mucceeds in discovering a "good saloon" there will still be hope of locating the "good trust." There was a time when Russia claimed some credit for helping to educate Japan in modern methoda. When a strike occurs the consumer has no hope whatever of any sympathetic dem onstration. Another Polimn='s Pis,tol Deadly. In Newark, N. J., yesterday a saloon keeper called to a police offeer and pointed out a young man, then passing, as having defrauded him by means of a worthless check for $18. The policeman arrested the youth and was taking him to the station when the prisoner wrenched himself loose and ran. The offcer commaended him to stop and threatened to shoot if he did not obey. The young man ran the faste and the poUegnan shot and killed him. The policeman denies having intended to hit the man. explaining thus: "I did not aim at him. I was taking my revolver from the chamois ease, intending to fire into the air and attract the atietmn of people. The hammer must have caught and exploded the cartridge," Here Is a ease exnaew In point of the mnatter tuched ~a jesterday hr The Star.

If this thing keeps up a demand wil arise der the equipment of policemen with signal guns in addition to their deadly weapons, loaded with blank cartrldges, which they -cqn ire In tM air or even straight at men. without doing damage. The firing of bell cartridges in the air or at the ground In cities is highly dangerous. Any innocent bystander or a person even some distance from the scene of the firing is likely to be hit. Word comes from St. Petersburg that the departdre of the cruiser -division of the Baltic sea fleet for the far east has been postponed for a fortnight. If this fleet does not start soon it will get to Port Arthur only In time to. pass in review of Admiral Togo when he holds his grand parade o9 war prizes. The people who said that the President would stay in Washington two weeks if the weather permitted were envious out siders who know nothing whatever of the balmy joys of the District of Columbia climate. Russian curiosity is not yet justified in considering anything but the extent of Kuropatkin's losses. The qtestion of how the battle went has come to have only one answer. Tammany will see to it that no demon stration on its part in favor of the national ticket can possibly be construed by David B. Hill as an expression of personal esteem. Bishop Potter has undertaken a task that might pusule some epicures when he assumes to decide just what constitutes good, wholesome beer. It is not expected that the subway will relieve the crush in New York so much as to make the city unhome-like for those who have gotten used to it. It will be pretty hard for Mr. Bryan to refrain from pointing out thing. -that he does not approve of In Judge Parker's letter of acceptance. SHOOTING STABS. A Difcult Process. "What are you doing?" asked Maud. "Studying Russian." answered Mamie. "Do you know, I believe I have discov ered why the Russians are defeated so often. When, a Russian general gives a command it must consume a lot of val uable time to get out a lexicon and trans late it to the troops." "Don' git out o' patience wif de man dat thinks he kno1s it all." said Uncle Eben. "De chances are dat he's gwine to git all de lesson he needs when he stahts in takin' his own tips." The Lucky Minority. Fate grants one man his every wish While thousands quail 'neath fortune's spite. One person catches all the fish While no one else can get a bite. Athletics. "Do you think the modern girl is bene fited by an athletic training?" "Yes," answered Miss Cayenne. "It en ables her to get In and out of a hammock without breaking her neck." The Result. "Do you believe that mosquitos are af fected by the use of kerosene in the swamps?" "Yes." answered Farmer Corntossel. "kerosene drives more of 'em from their homes an' makes 'em crosser an' blood thirstier than ever." Relative Importance. I'm gettin' weary of the facts An' figgers they are quotin'; The things that count for most In life Cannot be changed by votin'. The sun will shine without the aid Of any politician; An' folks won't all drink lemonade In spite of prohioition. The summer's goin' to bloom each year; The wild rose in the thicket Ain't waitin fur assistance from No presidential ticket. An' toll an' pleasure come along No matter how they figger. A campaign's something purty big; But there Is things that's bigger. Vardaman P. 0. From the New York Time. There is a blackguard in MissIssIppI, or at least the owner and editor of a black guard newspaper, named Vardaman, whose fellow citisens have disgraced themselves. or would have disgraced themselves, if they had then known about him what is known now, by electing him governor of the state. Some of them even desire to have a post office named after him. This desire Is re sisted by the Postmaster General, upon the ground that the man whom it was proposed thus to honor has written an Insulting arti cle about the President's mother. Varda man denies that he has done so. But his denial is manifestly either an untruth or a qubble. The article which appeared in his paper proves it to be one or the other, and cannot be cited in proof only because it is grossly indecent. It fully justifies the Post master General In refusing to give effect to the wish of the neighborhood in such a matter as the naming of a post office. If some Mississippians should desire their-post office to be called Blackguardville the Post mster' General would probably refuse his consent to such an act of self-stultification. And really that is virtually what they have done in asking to have it called Vardaman. At Ro.emount in the Morning. From the Cincinnati Comnmerial-Tribune.
