Low Mean Temperature.
W. m,, r bur au utlieial figures disclose
ti e i.ict that the "low mean temperature"
records foi all parts of the country were
bruk n during the past two months. What
particularly felicitous phrase! Low mean
temperature it has been indeed. Where is

Btraw hats wailing to be bought, who lias

In tlie vicinity of the District the combined
"low mean" for April and May was
r.:;,5 degrees, a full five degrees below the
normal. Now .".'15 is shivery weather. Not
dangerously sliiVery, but uncomfortably so.
AVhen mixed in with rain it is decidedly unjileaaant.
It is the kind of climate that

An Orator Wanted.
If the candidate is to bo Mr. Bryan again,
nrhn for the honor of placing him in nomination?
At Chiragn In Mr. Bryan nominated
J imself. Nothing more was necessary to
Impress the convention in his favor after
) a cross of gold speech. The convention
l--m that moment was his to command.
A' J then there was a dearth of orators of
t higher class. Taken as a whole, tlie
* "1> whs not up to the standard. The can?l.lit?s
were commonplace, and did not in?.-:i
e the speakers. There was a good deal
i \oitement, but nobody struck (Ire until
Mr Bryan, seeing Ills opportunity, took
i ? stage and brought on the brainstorm
v. bi. li oulmlnated In his nomination.
At Kansas City four years later the nomi
umg speech was a failure. The orator
!? U un<l. r the weight of his subject. An
?t>l.r man might have met the same fate.
A the candidate was to be named by ac<
Uii.itIon. a panegyric, rather than an^>rat
on for "points." was in order. Mr. Bryan,
i:i the eyes of the delegates, was as the
lily, or aa refined gold. An attempt, therefore.
to paint him, or gild him. was bound
to fail. The bare mention of his name set
everybody off. All the rest about him was
so much spoken against the whirlwind
of applause which his name had raised.
And her^wiU be the difficulty next year.
If. as now seems likely, the convention is
composed of Bryanites, and the purpose is
to put Mr. Bryan up with one voice, wnat
orator will be able to handle the subject to
the satisfaction of such an assembly, or,
for that matter, to the satisfaction of the
general public? The impossible will be expHCtPd.
But the difficulty may be avoided if Mr.
Bryan himself attends. lie may decide to
do so. In fact, strong as he is with his
party, certain of his issues would be wabbly
unless supported by him in person; and
the platform may take him to the meeting.
And. once th?re, he would have no rival.
His appearance in the hall would bring on
another convention brainstorm, and a
speech by him would follow. And that
would be sufficient. Who would care to
make. ( r to hear, a formal speech of nomination
after such a scene and its effect?
Still, the country is full of orators, and,
as a rule, men with that gift need no urging,
to practice it. If Mr. Bryan should ask
for a nominator his party would swarm
with volunteers, all willing to run the risk
of failure, and willing even to fail in his
name and with his name. He has his admirers
completely bewitched.
Who's Who?
l'efore we go any further, would it not be
well for us all to take stork of just where
we are, not to say just where we are at.
politically? Who may with safety affirm
either where he is, or what he is? That is
to say. what seeurity is there for the ordinary
human being in making assertions
on tiie subject.
Observe how the great leaders are
chaffing one another, and laying claims to
this tiling and that. Mr. Roosevelt is ordinarily
regarded as a republican, and regards
himself as one. Certainly he is recognized
as the head of what is known as
the republican party. If his republicanism
is open to question, whose is safe? And
yet no less a man than Mr. Bryan questions
it. He asserts that the best of what is in
.Mr. Roosevelt today, as manifested in his
official acts, is democratic. And he cites
in support of the assertion the vigorous
prosecution of tlie trusts and the raiiroad
rate-making legislation. As Mr. Bryan sees
matters?maybe for campaign purposesMr.
Kooseveit's republicanism has vanished
in thin air.
Gov. Hughes was elected as a republican.
Certainly he was nominated as one, and
triumphed over Mr. Hearst, who was carrying
the democratic banner. The flower
of Gov. Hughes' success in office so far is
the public utilities bill, which he wrung
fiom a legislature hostile in its feelings to
any measures of that character. But now
comes Bourke Cockran with the claim thatthe
real basis of the utilities bill is the
democratic platform adopted at Buffalo
last year. As Mr. Cockran drew that platform
he claims the right to expound it; and
those who know that gentleman'^ modesty
and conservatism of statement will hesitate
to suspect Mr. Cockran of a mistake. If
Mr. Cockran should err in such matters,
where would there be safety for anybody?
And as for Mr. Hearst, what, if he is to
be believed, is there of progress by any
official in any direction in restraint of plutocracy
that he did not either originate, or
bring to practical success? Unless he is
mistaken, he set the fashion in the crusades
against the trusts, and ft>r a time successfully
probed more of them than the gov

claims the championship belt as the trust
buster, and his services in that field encourage
him to declare that he is a republican
of the school of l.incoln and a democrat
of the school of Jefferson. As for the
school of the Independence League, he
started that, and is, of course, its head.
The era is one of doubt and confusion,
claim and counter-claim. Why not a commission
to determine who's who and what's
what, with instructions to bring in a report
before the next national conventions and
authority to enforce its findings?
With so many people insisting that Mr.
Roosevelt shall again appear as a candidate,
it is a little difficult for any of the other
gentlemen who are eligible to create any
vQct '? \*os r\f t h tiwia ?m
Bryan is placidly observing the exploration
of the democratic field for a man who
will keep the next nomination from looking
too much like a walkover.
Toy-animal makers occasionally display
such disregard of anatomy as to lay them
distinctly liable to the charge of being nature
fakers.
Mr. Roosevelt does not have to mention
names Whenever he gets after the railways
in general everybody thinks of E. H.
Harriman.
Thomas Ryan's declaration that he hasn't
a dollar in gas shows a genial disposition
on his part to leave something for his
brother magnates to own.
Some financiers think the President knows
as much about railways as certain naturalists
think he knows about animals.

The French Seamen's Strike.
A general strike of a peculiar nature has
caused the practically complete tie-up of
the entire maritime trade of France, affording
an example of solid organization which
may well cause the government at Paris to
contemplata the situation with dismay.
This is thus far an exceptionally orderly
strike. It is aimed, not at the employers,
but at the government, and It Is an illustration
of the recent tendency of the French
workingmen's organizations to Dring pressure
directly upon the national administration.
This strike is precipitated by a refusal of
the government to consider favorably a
bill for the increase of the pensions paid
to invalided members of the naval reserve,
whic'.i comprises practically all the - men
of the mercantile marine. The ministry
offered a compromise for the proposition.
which the minister of marine declared
wQuld bankrupt the government.
The compromise was rejected by a congress
of the seamen, and tiie strike was
thereupon organized, with the result that
yesterday virtually every ship under the
French flag then in home harbor was put
out of commission.
A remarkable feature of this strike Is its
completeness. With the single exception of
Hrest, in every one of the French seaports
not only the sailors walked out of the vessels.
but the longshoremen left the wharves,
and even the fishermen in some cases drew
in their nets. The strikers having no grievance
against the ship owners and masters,
there is no disposition toward disorder or
violence. i nua iui me is uie niuai
orderly affair that has ever occurred in
France in the name of a labor demonstration.
There Is, however, a sinister possibility.
If the government decides to oppose the demands
of the reserves and the strike is con
tinned there remains a weapon of which the
possibilities may prove serious. Under the
statutes it is within the power of the government
to accuse each striking seaman
of insubordination as a member of the
naval reserve and to punish him severely
a.s such. A move of this kind might be provocative
of an immediate uprising. Yet,
again, such a show of determination might
quell the insurrectionary spirit promptly.
Much therefore depends upon the policy
the ministry decides to adopt in meeting
this undeniably serious situation. The
Clemenceau government has lately received
a strong supporting indorsement from the
chambers and is in a position to take firm
ground against the strikers. Some settlement
of the trouble must be effected immediately
or the stoppage of all water traffic
will cost France an enormous sum. greater
than that entailed in the reforms demanded
by the union.
It is feared that the newly discovered difficulties
in building a lock canal will result
in laying off some of the steam shovels
to make room for more typewriters.
When two men as much under suspicion
as Schmitz and Kuef of San Francisco get
to telling on each other there is not a great
deal of room for sympathy on either side.
It is remarkable that so enthusiastic a
first-nighter as Abe Hummel used to be
should not threaten to write a play instead

San Francisco
From tlie New York Tribune.
No great credulity is needed in order to
believe the latest report from San Francisco
that the true conditions in that earthquakeshaken,
tire-swept, graft-ridden, labor boss
cursed town have been largely suppressed
for obvious practical reasons. Any one
who can read between the lines might have
discovered as much from the excellent,
conservative analysis of the situation given
last week in the San Francisco Argonn?t
r- i *
iuiul. iivci^uuuj tnac cctii ue convinced at
will by reading the various private letters
which have been finding their way during
the last fortnight into the columns of
various publications throughout the country.
San Francisco is, according to all
witnesses, in a turmoil painfully like those
which raged chronically in the mediaeval
Italian cities. The only material difference
seems to be that the California metropolis
harbors a gang of political sharpers who
play off the contending factions against
one another in a fashion which would make
Macchiavelli weep for joy.
Enjoyment of Parks.
From the Baltimore American.
Parks are desirable and necessary adjuncts
to any city. They add materially to
municipal adornment, tending to break up
that solid mass of wall and masonry which
shut us in to a more or less bleak perspective
and keep the country out. They
substitute instead ah open breathing space
and contribute to the pleasure of the people
by presenting to their view evidences of
horticultural art. supplemented bv sDacious
grass plots, which are rigorously kept in
their virgin greenness.
Education by Post Card.
From the Cleveland Leader.
There's a lot of folly about this matter of
postal cards, but Its good is more than compensating.
The picture postal Is an educator
not to be considered lightly. It is often
a work of art, and this, added to Its authenticity,
improves the receiver's taste as
well as his geography.
Listen to the Graduates I
From the Buffalo Commercial.
If the people will only be patient and wait
there are any number of young graduates
who will make speeches during the coming
month?stating Just what Is the matter with
the government and things generally, and
setting forth the correct remedy and the
way to apply it.
Man in an Auto.
From tbo Philadelphia Inquirer.
Isn't Foraker somewhat behind the times
in talking about "the man on horsebr.ck"?
The man in the automobile Is the mail of
