No "Clarion Call."
The condition described in the following
statement in The Star's staff correspondonce
from New York printed yesterday cal's
for comment:
"In financial and capitalist circles there
is u tendency to blame the President for
what they charge is encouragement of the
spirit of socialism that Meirst has d'storted
?nd exaggerated. * * A clarion call
fur conservatism from the White House
would be mighty welcome to republicans
juoi IIU >? .
To the extent that the political fortunes
of President Roosevelt or those of the republican
party at large are bound up in
the campaign of Mr. Hughes for governor
of New York, such a "clarion call" would
be a serious blunder. Mr. Hughes' chance
to win the governorship rests largely upon
his persuasion of the voters that if elected
he will not be identified with or controlled
by these same "financial and capitalistic
circles." To the exteift- that he can prove
his Independence of them and establish
the sincerity of his belief in their wise regulation,
and his purpose to work for that end
If seated In Albany, he will win votes. To
the extent that he Is coupled in the voters'
minds wah the great corporation interests
he loses ground.
A "Marlon call for conservatism" at this
time would be poor tactics. There is nothing
to gain by it and everything to lose.
The financial and capitalist circles of New

the election of Mr. Hearst. They believe
Hearst to be an unmitigated evil, a threat
of extreme radicalism. They believe that
.Hughes st.inds for moderation of reform.
f'ir reasonableness of regulation as against
the wide-splitting doctrine proclaimed hourly
from the stump by the Hearst boomers.
To sound the note of conservatism in terms
that appeal to Wall street would be of m
advantage to the Hughes ea.mpi.Ign, and
gre t advantage to the Hearst movement.
The Roosevelt administration stands for
reform, of the kind that Hughes advocates.
I; stands for the principle Involved in the
innurance Investigation, honesty of corporation
management. It advocates a certain
reasonable degree of federal regulalion

m.i.v be. between the extre-me of Hearstism
and the Wall street doctrine of "hands
ofT." The White House could not honestly
sound a "clarion call of conservatism" In
terms pleasing to the capitalistic interest.
If it intervened at all in the New York
campaign It would have to endorse the
doctrines for which Mr. Hughes now stands
011 the stump.
The real issue in New York Is whether
Hearst or Hughes is sincere in his promises.
What the former proclaims frightens many
conservative citizens. What Hughes de
ciares cannot harm any proper interest. It
In for the voters of New York to decide
which man will most surely si-ore progress
as governor toward the reform goal; whether
Hearst, if he undertakes to rarry out his
program, could succeed in any measure,
and if he succeeds whether he would not
wreck the substantial and necessary foundations
of the nuhlio
Hughes, as governor, would proceed along
the lines of his past performances ami probe
evils to the bottom and devise remedies for
ill conditions. The "clarion call" so much
desired by the capitalistic circles might
lessen public belief in the sincerity of
Moran and Williams.
Mr. Moran rejects the Indorsement of Mr.
Bryan by the Massachusetts democratic
convention, and reserves the right to support
a Massachusetts man for the next
democratic nomination for President. It
in assumed that he has himself in mind.
The world is suspicious, and selfishness is
too often the rule of conduct. But thwe
is another Hay state democrat of eminence,
and why forget him? Mr. Moran may have
ills < > ? on George Kred Williams, who possesses
much charm, and -more assurance.
Mr Williams. It is true. Is the author of the
resolution committing Massachusetts to Mr.
Bryan, but he is vastly human, and would
prouaniy swap the Nebraskan for himself.
Let us wait and see. Mr. Williams is now
helping Mr. Moran, and if the latter lands
he may then turn and help the former.

Up-State in New York.
The New York campaign is full of unaccountable
things, but there is no room for
mystery respecting the lack of hurrah in
the up-state audiences of the gubernatorial
candidates. What is to produce it?
Neither Mr. Hughes nor Mr. Hearst is aji
orator. Each is trying his voice for the
An lcat^cro ornwHu Vf r Hah rst is
indulging in very tall claims of important
services rendered the dear people, while
Mr. Hughes, with lawyer-like thoroughness,
is explaining them away in a style to delight
a court, hut which is largely lost on
the average layman. Where do the breathless
attention and the succeeding shout
come In?
Let us all be thankful for this. The campaign
is momentous far beyond the ordinary.
and the country wants a verdict based
less upon wild-eyed enthusiasm than upon
reflection. If these crowds are returning
home with their throats Intact and their
heads clear the probability is that the
voters are thinking over what they have
heard, and will be ready on election day to
cast their ballots intelligently.
Of hysteria we have of late years had a
surfeit. From the hour when Mr. Bryan
threw the Chicago convention into fits ten
year- ago, to a very recent day, our political
meetings, and particularly our nomi
nating conventions, have resembled sections
of Bedlam. Noise and flubdub have dominated
all. It has been a feverish contest as
to which side could shout the louder and
keep it up the longer. The watch has been
held on raging mobs, and the time announced,
as in a prize fight, or a horse race.
And yet business of importance was In
hand, and called for good Judgment. Is
there room for wonder that in such a period
the minority party, having the greater reason
to be thoughtful and Judicious in its
efforts to geciifre power, has floundered
Vinrtalaciclv anil oil hilt CO HA Plti PP1V tn
In a great center like Greater New York
an enormous ccowd is easily gathered, and
a certain amount of noise is the very breath
of its being. It will cheer at one signal, and
stop at another. It need not hear a word a
speaker Js uttering. The best carrying
voice is limited, and even Mr. Bryan's- rare
organ Is seldom heard by more than half of
those who nook to his meetings in cities.
In smaller communities and In the country
the people are not always assured that the
whole speech will be spread before them In
print next morning; and so attention there
Is better. Audiences are eager for the
spoken word, and are silent to receive It.
The Impulse to Jump.

men weak enough to yield to the temptation.

Many mysterious deaths from "falling"

by this impulse that comes to so

That this federation, or any other respectable

an act of such wanton brutality is not
to be accepted. The fellow who caused

he acted, deserves the reprobation not

There are conventions that appeal Instinctively
to the normal sense, and among
these is that involving respect for the dead
and consideration for those who mourn.
This respect, universal among the civilized,
differentiates men from beasts as
strongly as any one characteristic. The
excess of zeal that would interfere with

Charity Indeed.
From the Springfield I'ulon.
Mrs. William Ziegler. widow of the late
capitalist, has supplied funds for the publication
of a magazine for the blind. It Is
the first periodical of its kind to be published
in America and It will be distributed
free to all of the 70,000 blind. Because of
the great cost of printing In raised characters,
only a limited number of books
have been heretofore published and the
blind will greatly appreciate Mrs. Ziegler's
splendid charity. The magazine will contain
the news of the day. short stories
frorr^ the leading periodicals and contributions
from blind readers themselves. TTnfortunately
no common typographical
standard exists for books for the blind, so
there will be the extra expense of printing
the magazine in the two systems most generally
used. So much attention is being
paid to the work of educating the sightless
that it is strange a uniform style of
typography has not been adopted. It Is a
subject to which attention should be given
and the new Zlegler magazine may accomplish
something in that direction.
