Judge Parker's Leadership. Jndg- Parker takes hold like an old hand at the bellows. The Indiana ticket is said to he his. Before the visit of John W. Kern to Esopus there were three or four aspirants for the gubernatorial nomination in the hoosier state. Two of them were men of considerable ability. Mr. Kern him self was not in the field. Having made the race four years ago and been defeated. be was disposed to make way for others. But he made no favorable an impression on Jt dge Parker at Esopus that from that time the discussion of his name in connec tion with the Indiana campaign beeame very suggestive. Politicians are quick to see a point and anxious to stand well at court. So that when it was fairly well established that Judge Parker wanted Mr. Kern to run for governor again those who were eager for the nomination stepped aside. It was probably the strongest nomination that could have been made. Mr. Kern and Mr. Taggart are political chums, and should work well together in the contest. Both know the state, and Mr. Taggart will probably use his influence as national chair wan to the advantage of the local cam paign. Mr. Kern was influential in Mr. Taggart's success, and Mr. Taggart, in re turn, in Mr. Kern's success, and the promise is out that as the result of their joint success Indirna in November is to go democratic. Judge Parker has been prom ised the state's vote. It is not always good politics for a presidential nominee to interfere in local matters. Such interference has on more than one occasion been resented. But there is no danger of such a thing in this case. Democratic prospects in Indiana are not overly bright, and those who have given way for Mr. Kern have not made a great sacrifice. They can see the argu ment as plainly as anybody else; which is that if victory is to be won at all, it must be by bringing the state campaign into as close touch as possible with the wishes and purposes of the national lead ers. And they have made their contribu tion to the campaign by consenting with out contest to the nomination of the man of Judge Parker's choice. Judge Parker has been hailed as the master of his party. That is a pretty strong word, but iis part in bringing about his own nomination, and now the ease with which he has brought about the nomination of Mr. Kern, show at least that he is a very clever politician. The Prosecutor's Preliminary Inquiry. It is anlnuestionably proper for the prose cuting omrers of the Police Court to ascer tain before taking their cases into court, if there be time, the general character of the charges tiled against defendants and of the testimony available in support of them. That process, however, should not go so far as to call for a hearing of both sides. The preliminary inquiry of the prosecutor is sirrliar to the Investigation conducted by the grand Jury. The defendant is not al ways examined by that body, and the wit ne: as are not heard in the presence of any - representative of the person accused. The whole procedure is ex parte, yet the judg ment of the'twenty-three men constituting the jury must be satisaed that there ts a prima facie case of guilt. The .jury does not indict only in cases of certain guilt. Just so the prosecutor in the Police Court, whose problems are infinitely more i miple than those of the higher courts, although iore numerous, should take into court- all ca.ses where the complaint is definite and supported by the testimony of a policeman or two citizens whose versions agree in the main. If he stops to listen to the defend ant and to weigh his explanation or denial against the testimony of the accusing wit flesses he is trespassing upon the functions of the court. A case should be plainly un worthy of prosecution to be abandoned by the pros~ecutor, so plainly as to appeal to the~ average judgment as unworthy. A good m,any of the cases in which Informations have been quashed are of vioiations of the speed regulations. In these cases the pr OSe cutling ottleier has established himself as a co,urt and has accepted collateral and dis missed charges after tihe manner of the presiding Judge in a way to create the im pressioni that thiere' is no real vitality in the r.'gulat ions anrd no c'redenice at the Police Court in the testimony of the bicycle po lii'emen who make the arrests. If the prac tice of hearing all cases before trial In the prosecutor's oftice is to continue certain rules should he laid down so that the public will understand tihe measure whIch Is ap plied to infoirrations and to supporting test imonry to drlminn whet her they are suffilent. And full records of all cases dis posed of ini tis way should be kept and pulblishe.d inr order that there may be no misunil.rstandting of tihe circumstances. Devery. Wi'hy allI this pithier abo ut thre in vittion to Mr. I >every to visit Em>'pus?

Mr. Met'arre'n still keeps uip his in ti-nae(3 withi th' e'x-chief of police. Mr. Murph' jlust now is rafflcted with a spell of aloofnr,'s. Ituit they aire all democrats three of a kind. Why should they not all look alike to .Jnudge Parker? He~ wants their votes aind their influience, and so he recog nilmes them. Mr. Cleveland, when a candi date for thre presidency, was glad to ac cept tha. assistance of flichard Croker. and sat withI Mr Croker at a public dinner eaten to celebrate tihe victo)ry of l892 Does Mr. ('r ker, in any mranner, "hold over" hris old frienrd, Mr. D)every? Can Judge Parker crr in following where Mr. Cleve land hi;m showni the way? Every now and then Mr. Bill Devery in vites attention to himself, but his peculiar style of humror isi no longer popular. Kuropartkin would be almost justified in pleading illness and turning his post over to an unde'r'study. Health Booklets. Onle of the big life insurance companies of New York city has taken to issuing oc casional pamphlets or "health booklets" treating briefly but pointedly of the ills of hun.anity and aiming at the establishment of good sanitary habits. The purpose ol the enterprise is obviously selfish, to de crease the death rate among the policy holders of this particular institution, but it Ms'aone the less commendable or worthy of ignitation. Indeed, the life insurance comn pdhies ought to form a greftt faetor in' the present-day fight for -the eradicatiort ol preventable dsa.ee -There"Was neveir a iine when the public was so well iaforaed ori Io willlie ~foe intorfndd'as.to, the na ture of illness, its sources and its treat ment. The great strides of bacteriologl during the past quarter of a century have brought the thinking world into close touch with many phenomena of health and dis ease which were formerly regarded as un solvable mysteries. This series of the insurance company's booklets treats of four of the chief causes of death and disease tn midsummer. sun stroke, drowning, diarrhoea and mrtria. each in a separate pamphlet small enough to be tucked Into the vest pocket. It does not undertake to supplant the physician, but to facilitate his work by pre%'nting use less exposures of life. There need be no fear on the part of the physicians that their business will be taken- away from them by the sanitarians -or ,y the pam phlet writers. There will always be illness and always need of the Skilled treatment which only physicians can give. The field of the sanitarian and the gratuit-os adviser of the public lies chiefly -on the borders be tween health and disease. It is the pur pose of the hygienists to press those bor ders ever onward, encroaching upon the territory of disease. That they will suc ceed in enveloping It completely is impos sible. Man is born to die and the great object of medical science and hygiene and the sanitary enterprises is to keep him alive as long as possible, to render his life easy and healthful and to give his physi cal energies their fullest play for the ac complishment of the work for which hb was sent into the world. Parkerism at Parkersburg. The West Virginia democrats tackled the race question, with an illuminating result. Two factions appeared In the Parkersburg convention. One was composed of men of the Vardaman stripe, who insisted that the party should commit itself openly and ab solutely to the doctrine that this is a white man's government, and that none but white men should be allowed a voice In govern mental affairs. They do not limit the scope of their proposition. They would have it apply in the north as in the south. They want It applied in West Virginia, as It Is now applied in Mississippi. They asked the convention to go on record, and to pledge the party, in case of success at the polls, to change the suffrage laws of the state so as to eliminate the negro vote. Speeches in support of the proposition were loudly ap plauded. The other faction was composed of men not unfavorable to the proposition, but less impetuous in pursuit of the object. Repre senting what Is known as "foxy," or prac tical, politics, they insisted that such a dec laration by the convention would be un wise. They pointed to the large negro vote in the doubtful states, and admitted that a play was being made for a part of it by the democratic leaders. Why prejudice this effort? Why not promote It by silence? Wait until after November. Then, in the event of the election of Parker and Davis, and of the West Virginia democratic state ticket, with the aid of negro votes cast where all votes are counted, the West Vir ginia job can be, and will be, attended to. Make sure of the power before announcing what will be done with it. The "foxy" faction won, by a vote or 919 to l'i. It was, as may be seen, a Parkerian triumph-or a triumph fashioned on Par kerlan lines. The platform contains no threat of negro disfranchisement, but the purpose is understood. The Parker and Davis managers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Indiana and Illinois will not have to confront an anti-negro plank in the democratic platform of Mr. Davis' own state, but go on hustling-unembarrassed to that extent-for negro votes in all of that important territory. Then, if the battle is won, down will come the knife and the negro vote in West Virginia will be cut off. Will the play have the desired effect? It ia, to repeat, truly Parkertan. Mr. Hill would have advised it-maybe,did advise it. Firkt the presidential nomination, and then the gold telegram.. IFirst the powrer:to di? franchise. and then the act. No premature d9etAratl6n of princijles or purpose. The President and the Constitution. There is a good deal of talk .just now on the part of certain men and newspapers opposed to the election of President Ropse velt about his assaults upon the Constitu tion of the United States. But there is at the same time a suggestive dea'th of speci fications. No one has come forward to identify the article and clause of the funda mental law that the President has violated or ignored or subverted. He .is pictured as using it as a punching bag, as shooting holes through It, as tearing it to bits and trampling upon it. after a fashion that, if based on facts, would warrant his impeachment. But there have been no im peachment proceedings thus far. There is no general agitation of fear for t-he in tegrity of the Constitution. The outcry arises from a few sources and It Is easily read in terms of partisanship or factionalism or personal prejudice. Until these critics of Mr. Roosevelt can put finger on the passage tha.t has been overruled and supply the facts of Its destruction, the general public will regard these charges and insinuations as mere campaign vaporing. -And in the degree that they continue without proof Mr. Roosevelt gains in strength with thc pJeopile who are not to be misled by misrepre sentations- They are likely to ask why those wiho are so fearful of the integrity of the Constitution do not file charges against the President In regular order. It is reasonab)le to assume that the work of introducing ,iudge Parker to the nurner ous politicians of his party who were not acquainted with him has been completed. The appointment of John R. McLean to a place on the democratic executive commit tee may be regarded as evidence that Tom L.. Johnson is not being consulted. Venezuela has for some time been in the position of a country with so much trouble on its hands that a little more or less made no appreciable difference.* It is a little trying for Governor Odell to be expected to wax enthusiastic over an other man's qualifications for the governor ship of New York. The Japanese feel competent to provide a few eligibles if Mr. Carnegie should decide to make his hero collection an international affair. If New York politics fails to Interest Richard Croker, he may find some congen Ial excitement at the Saratoga race trac-k. New York takes pride in the fact that the subway tavern has .been opened, and hopes that the subway will follow In time. Campaign issues may comeq and go, but the tariff runs on forever. A Cool, wet July,. The month of July in the imm~ediate neighborhood of Washington has borne out the reputation of the current year as re garde heat by beinig cooler than the average of the records. The mean daily temperature for the month was 74.3 degrees Fahrenheit, whereas the meba tesiperature for the month of July durIng the past thirty-four years has been 77 degrees'. The hottest July on record was that of 1872, when the mean daily temperature was 81 degrees; equaled by the July of 1876. The coolest was that of 181, Vthen the mheat tempera ture was only 72 degrees, Thus thin 7egr' July has bEen a little above tie reborded minimum. - Soindernin fellON e&kiti of tirenty days during the inouth, maktaf a toasll-fpi the month of 6.25 inches. This Is 1.73 nh in excess of the aftre 'of dy-y years, which is 4M )ip,.Tha etjest July on record during thsperiod wad that of 1866, when 10.n alt hnsh fell and te m... eat was that of 1872, when asly eighty-two hundredths of an inch elL. Thus, July of 1872 appears as the Iettest and the dryest July of which the Weather Bureau has oicail knowledge. In the July of the year 1888, when more than ten inches of rain tell here, the mean daily tem perature was 74 , degrees, about the same as this year. It is interesting to know that during the month of July the wind blew past the Weather Bureau a total dis tance of.3,844 miles, this being a moderate total for thirty-one days, the. maximum speed being reached on the first of the month, when the measuring machine show ed a rate of thirty miles an hour. Since the first of January the year has lost 568 de grees of temperature' below the mean of thirty-four years, 'or an average daily de ficiency of 2.7 degrees, and the rainfall in this locality has -been just two inches less than .the average. - The hottest July day this year was the 18th, when the maximum temperature was 92 degrees -and the mini mum 77, with a mean of 84. The next day had the same maximum and mean, but a minimum two degrees lower than the mini mum of the 18th. Mr. Sully Is lucky In the fact that a dis credited "cotton king" is not liable to the personal attentions that anarchists are in clined to. bestow on unpopular potentates. Mr. Fairbanks is a man of great com posure and betrayed no excitement what ever when Mr. Root informed him that he was the nominee for the vice presidency. The Asiatic war is again demonstrating that a country's military success cannot be prophesied from the amount of space It occupies on the map. The rear platform of the railway train will not seem the same as when Mr. Bryan was an active quantity in the presidential race. SHOOTING STABS. Often Reminded. "How often." said the philosopher, "a man is reminded of his own littleness In this great world." "Yes," answered Mr. Cumrox, "especially if he has three daughters who have been to boarding school." The Victim. The trusts and strikers day by day The air with fierce contentions fill. The public merely waits to pay Each month some extra on the bill. The Trouble. "Pete," said Meandering Mike, "do you believe dat honesty is de best policy?" "Sure," answered Plodding Pete. "De trouble is dat you cn't persuade people to present you wit' t'ings instead o' compellin' you to take 'em widout askin'." Peculiar Patriotism. "Have you never reflected on the chances for doing good to your country that you may have missed?" "No," answered Senator Sorghum. "I take pride in feeling that my country is big enough to take care of itself without any assistance from me." "De trouble 'bout de man dat borrows trouble," said Uncle Eben, "is dat he wants to pay some of it to everybody he meets, whether it's owin' to 'em or not." Futile Protest. De o1' dog's a-barkin' at de moon all night. An' de o1' moon sails along; De o1' dog reckon dat he doesn' like the light Case it's either too weak or strong.

One of the "lessons" which military science was supposed to have learned from the war In South-Africa was that artillery could accomplish nothing in field operationg that could not be more cheaply and ex peditiously effected by rifle fire. The com paratively mall damage' done to certain carefully selected npsitions after hours of borrbardment with highly explosive shells was cited as evidence that all field guns, except those of the smaller machine types, cost more than they were worth. The record of the Russo-Japanese wgr disproves this claim. During the last few months artillery has always been an important, and occasionally, a vital factor in determining the issue of engagements. The story of the protracted duel between field batteries at Tatchekalo shows that the superior position of the Russian guns long held an over whelming Japanese force at bay Wvhen rifle fire would have been powerless to have checked the attack._ Political Statistics. Frim the Baltimore Sun. The political statistician, like the pres tidigitateur, is entertaining, but the audi ence knows It Is all sleight of hand. Get-Poor-Quick Schemes. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer. His rich uncle had just died. "I am undecided." he mused, as he fingered over a big roll of bills. "whether to go to St. Louis and live at a hotel, buy an automo bile and let the garage people repair it, or purchase a nice beefsteak." Philanthropists. From the Pittsburg Dispatch.
