Former Senator Dorsey, now of California.
Interviewed in London about American
politics^ said:
".Mr. Roosevelt Is a candidate for re-election.
and has been a candidate for some
time. The Impression Is growing that he is
the unly man able to handle the peculiar
situation that has developed in the United
States In the last few years. I am convinced
that he Is the only man with whom
the republicans can beat Mr. Bryan.

"Just before leaving home I had Interviews
with several republican leaders. Their
chief fear is of Mr. Bryan's growing
strength. I don't think-Gov. Hughes would
innkc any show against liirn. I don't doubt
Mr. Hrynn would be able to raise a larger
campaign fund than Mr. Roosevelt."
Mr Horsey used to be an authority on
campaign funds. It was he who In the
(Jartleld and Arthur campaign raised the
money which was found necessary in the
closing davs of that tiirht to finance the sit
tuition In Indiana. He appeared at Indianapolis
in the nick of time, and what
lie brought answered as an offset to what
the democrats had collected for their purposes.
After the election, at a public celebration
of the victory. Vice President-elect
Arthur complimented Mr. Dorsey on his
work for the ticket.

get hid money? His admirers are numerous.

jou will, forces the renominatlon of Mr.
Roosevelt next year, and the choice is between

The Muruhv-McClellan Bare-sin.
? ~ - O
It is now asserted that the basis of the
McCleilan-Murphjr peace agreement is ttiat
McOlelian is to secure the support of the
Tammany votes in the state legislature to
kill the recount bill, while he is to abandon
lils efT..rts to defeat Murphy at the next
primaries and secure a change of leaders.
Incidentally, It is stated. Murphy has obtained
promises that Police Commissioner
Bingham will be either dismissed from office
or forced to abate the enthusiasm with
which lie Is undertaking to close up the Illegal
resorts in New York. Thus, if the
c.t.se stands as stated, Mi-Clellan secures
Immunity from a possible ouster from oftiie
by Hearst and gives in exchange a free
hand to Murphy in the primaries and to his
lieutenants In the maintenance of the gambling
<ilves and the law-breaking saloons
and other establishments in which they are
deeply interested.
There are. of course, some high-sounding
statements by both sides, about the appointment
of the l>est men to office, and
non-interference with the mayor by Murphy
or his friends, and the enforcement of the
iaw and all trial. Hut lew people in the
hi* elty are deceived. Everybody understands
that those who are putting forth
these statements are winking as they talk.
The bargain is a plain one, the mayor's official
life guaranteed in trade for Immunity
from Interference.
It Is hardly to l>e expected that Gen.
Btng: ani. at the head of the police department.
will acquiesce In this sort of a bargain
lie is bent upon reforming the force
and making It do Its work, j ie knows full
well that he is faced by one of the hardest
propositions ever put before a man. and
thus far he has stru^gi^d bravely against

shifts and punishments are to be stopped

man he la Unlay believed to be.
Perhaps It can be shown by a clever
lawyer that Douglas and Dennett were
merely victims of an acute attack of dementia
Secretary Taft continues to speak with
more confidence about Panama than about
Airship Progress.
Never before were so many men of sciet'c?
working to solve the problem of sc- !
called humnn flight, that Is to say, the
production of the practicable airship. The
dirigible balloon, however, is at present the
nearest approach to the goal yet scored,
and it Is far from answering ".he requirements.
It Is navigable only under propitious
conditions, and its range Is limited to
a few miles. Santos-Dumont. who has done
perhaps more than any other one man to
bring this type of balloon :o a high sta'e.
has been working lately along the lines cf
the aeroplane, which the late Prof I,ang*
ley failed to demonstrate on a working
male. Santos-Dumont's machine, which
combines the automobile and the aeroplane.
Iihs been put through some Interesting and
suggestive paces In Paris, but It Is not regarded
yet as a practicable device. Its
flights have been short and lis descents
Prof. Alexander Graham Bell, interviewed
In London, offers the prediction that the
Ideal "flying machine" wlil soon be forthcoming.
and that the aerial battleship Is a
strong probability tor the near future. He
cites his own experiments with the multiple-cell
kite, which he has brought* to the
point of supporting itself and a man In a
ten-mile breeze. He proposes now to work
on a machine which will carry an engine of
fifteen-horsepower, weighing 120pounds. His
hope is to evolve an apparatus that will
enablf ruture experimenters 10 sustain i
themselves In the air long enough to study
the conditions and to "learn how to fly."
The Issue still lies between the gas-bag
apparatus and the "heavier than air" machine.
It has been fairly well demonstrated
that the gas-bag Is unlikely ever to figure
in the Ideal flying machine, save as an
auxiliary. The primary requirement Is that
the machine must use the wind, and not
be defeated by it. No great globe or cylinder,
however strongly propelled, can be expected
to ride the breeae at a practicable
speed In any direction but that of the wind
Itself. Much progress has been scored In
the evolution of an engine suitable for use
i in Bnma fnrm nf air rraft. The Wright I
brothers have produced a machine that
combines power and lightness, but until
tho aeroplane Itself is made strong enough
to withstand the strains of the air currents
the combination for which Prof. Bell looks
so confidently will not be attained.
One of the latest suggestions In this direction
has been that air craft may be propelled
by electric currents transmitted by
means of the wireless system. While this
is interesting, it is not particularly Inspiring
of hope. It Is true that the possibilities
of the Herzian waves are only Just
being appreciated, and the field for experimenters
In this line Is very wide. The wireless
airship would Indeed be a triumph of
twentieth century ingenuity.
Hearst and His Politics.
Replying to the charge that he Is no
longer a democrat. Mr. Hearst says:
"I am a firm believer In the principles
which JefTerson enunciated. In the principles
which Lincoln revived, interpreted and
exemplified. I believe absolutely, not only
In Jefferson's theory of equal rights for all
and special privileges to none, but In Its
nranflMl onnl lr??? i <"vn t H OVftPV nhflilA flf
public policy. I believe In Jefferson's government
for the greatest good of the greatest
number, and In Lincoln's government of
the people, by the people, for the people. X
would have been a democrat In JefTerson's
day. and a republican in Lincoln's day:
but whether I can properly he classified as
a democrat ii: the present day Is a matter
which I admit Is subject to legitimate
"In conclusion, let me say that In my
opinion there is no question about the value
of the Initiative and referendum, and let
mo aua I nave aavocateu in*- same measures
for many years, and. what is more to
the point, we have succeeded in Los Angelos,
where I have a newspaper. In putting
them into such practical operation that they
are embodied in the city charter and employed
In the city government."
Mr. Hearst should not allow a little thing
like this to vex him. Never mind about
mere tags. What voter can say what he is
or where he is these days? It's a wise man
that knows his own party. Change and dismay
In all around we see, and the protean
performance still goes on. Take a glance
at the confusion.

that Mr. Roosevelt is a democrat, with anarchistic
trimmings. Mr. Bryan asserts that
Mr. Roosevelt has stolen a good deal of his
thunder, and to that extent Is a democrat.
Many Roosevelt republicans declare that
both Mr. Fairbanks and Mr. Foraker are
reactionaries, and therefore no longer republicans.
Democrats of the Cleveland sc.iool sneer
a* Mr. Bryan's democracy. They ticket it
as populism, pure and simple. If we may
believe them, there is not a democratic bone
In Mr. Bryan's body. The Bryan men. in
rep'y characterize Mr. C leveland as a republican.
and incline to the belief that he
disrupted the democratic party purposely.
New York republican bankers, they claim.
always uau more limuence wixn mm man
the recognised leaders of the democratic
party. And so It goes.
The New V'ork World should enlarge Its
very Interesting and pertinent question.
While endeavoring to discover what to a
democrat. It should also Inquire as to what
is a republican. Not with a view of settling
either question?for that Is not important
just now?but for the purpose of making
good "copy." The publi'c likes the subject,
and will read clever contributions to It.
But, in passing, observe the sly dig Mr.
Hearst gives Mr. Rryan as to the Initiative
and referendum. "Why," he says in sub
stance, i ve oeen in ravor of that for some
time. The policy. i"n fact. Is already operating
in a small way in a western town
where I print one of rny newspapers If you
want a thing done come to me. Oodlin
Hearst, and not Short Bryan. Is the friend."
These are very beautiful times, taking
everything into consideration, and they are
likely to last for at least eighteen months
longer. And what the result will be In November
of next year Is as pretty a problem
as any old political forecaster ever tackled.
The Canal.
In Home remarks at Cincinnati Secretary |
Taft said:
"If the Panama canal is not completed
within eight years from now I shall be
greatly disappointed. If It is completed
in less time than that I shall not be greatly
Nobody has more Information upon which
to base an estimate. The Secretary has
read all the official reports In the case, conversed
with the men In immediate charge
of the work and. besides, has made two
trips to the Isthmus and surveyed the scene
with his own eyes. There may b? unavoidable
delays. The eight years may
lengthen to ten. But the dirt at last Is
undoubtedly Hying, and men enough are
busy to make It fly faster, and the country
would not complain of the mistake of a
J year or two in the generaW reckoning.
In his past few weeks of silence Mr. Harrlman
has no doubt accumulated much
[ more information that would be valuable
and interesting if it could only be secured.
Mayor Dunne will naturally ascribe the
revival of prize lighting In Chicago to the

repudiation of government ownership.

The Waldo Charges.
Representative Waldo of Brooklyn has
raised a fog with his Boston speech about
hikl?B in \\x 11 lcshins r>lnc<r?'H with
putty anil soap. Naval officers and contracting
shipbuilders have resented his remarks
with a vigor that must cause the
Brooklyn legislator to thank his stars he
did not express his statements In the company
of his present critics. It is admitted
that rivet hole# are sometimes drilled Into a
ship's plates in wrong places and that they
have to be plugged, but it is vehemently
denied that the plugs are ever made of
soap or putty. Genuine steel rivets are
usually used, though sometimes It Is re
garded as perfectly good practice to use
If Representative Waldo knows whereof
he speaks, and has testimony to offer as to
the tricks of contractors and the slackness
of government inspectors, he should surely
report to headquarters and prefer his
charges in a regular manner. Post-prandial
speeches by members of the House of Representatives
are not regarded as the best
media for the utterance of such serious accusations.
Mr. Waldo is an officer of the
government, and li intrusted with a responsibility
that U not discharged when he
spnng9 a surprise on a crowd of diners.
It is hardly to be believed that the shoddy
tricks such as those alleged can be or are
played upon the government by either the
contractors or the government-yard workingmen.
Our battleships have certainly not
shown symptoms of having soap-plugged
holes in their hulls, but are giving as good
an account or memseivea in tneir voyages
and their maneuver-tags as may be expected
from the best built war craft in the
world. As for the relative merits of the
rival systems of construction, by contract
or at government yards, that Is too big a
question to be belittled and complicated by
haphazard statements of this character.
Mr. Roosevelt has not retracted his announcement
that he will not run agalnvbut
his admirers insist on constructing hypothetical
questions on the subject.
It would not be strange If Mr. Loeb experienced
the desire to become a permanonf

The excursion activity occasioned by the

a proper amount of extra work for the

he has made a positive stand, to let other
people do most of the regretting.

Is This Jealousy ?
From the Pittsburg Gazette.
Hasn't a suffering nubllr had ahnut
enough of this "Broadway" business In
play, song, monologue, sketch and other
stage devices put forth to scoop In the
dollars of people west of "the AlleghenlesT
These dollars are good money and they are
deserving of something more worth while
than this everlasting chatter of Broadway.
Sane people long ago observed that the
country was being surfeited with glorification
of a thoroughfare noted principally for
Its flaunting vice with an especially alluring
glamour. The fact is, there are a great
many people this side of Hoboken who
have seen Broadway, startling as this assertion
may seem to some New Yorkers,
and they are not tremendously concerned
with It. They know that there are atmospheres
far more wholesome and far maro
American in may cities than that to be
found on Broadway when the electric
lights begin to twinkle.
Railroad Rates and Postage.
From the Patbflnder.
The railroads are fighting with tooth and

from 3 cents a half ounce to 2 cents an
ounce the receipts soon jumped enough to
more than make up.
