t-Tln order to avoid delays on aeconnt of
personal absence letters to THE STAR
should not be addressed to any Individual
connected with the offlce. but almpiy to
THE ST An, oz to the Editorial or Business
Departments, according- to tenor or
The South in National Affairs.
The argument in support of ;i southern
man for President is that as the soutji is
the s. at of the d< m ratif power she should
lead the party Why. it is asked, should
she l>e forever i humble follower of the
north? She has many worthy sons, and
Just now is being adjured to put one of
them tip for next year's nomination.
So far t ie presidency is concerned the
south 1;.is b. > !! sitting below the salt a long
tim>- but in nth. r r*spe'*ts she lias liati a
1 1 ! s.iy about party matti-rs?

In t . S'-nat*- the democratic leader for
\vars was Mr. Gorman of Maryland, and
w}.?-n he dir-d the vacancy was filled by the
nel.ition ?:" Mr lilackburn of Kentucky.
The n >rth- rn democrats presented nobody
Mr Curman. and last winter as
again. t Mr lila. kburn they had nobody to
present. S::iee Mr. Bryan took charge of
the party northern democrats have disappear-i
from t!.e Senate tintiJ none is left.
When the Sixtieth Congress organizes
next winter the south will again be in tho
saddle. Mr. Williams will again lead ills

crats who would be glad of a change. But
only southern men. Mr. Clark and Mr. De
Armiiml of Missouri, have been proposed
to succeed him. In the Senate tbe only talk
of a minority leader relates to southern
men Mr. Culberson of Texas. Mr. Martin
of Virginia. .\ir Bacon of Georgia and Mr.
Kayner of Maryland are the men canvassed
for the place vacated by Mr. Ulackburn.
and it seems likely that one of the four
will draw the prize.
CI is h.irdly accurate, therefore, to describe
the south as a stepchild in the democratic
household. She lias a very resonant voice
about party matters, and during both of
Mr. Cleveland's terms as President she
shared bountifully In the distribution of the

the presidency only through fear that for
the grand e she would not hold the
winning ticket. For everything in fair
reach she holds out her platter.
What Is to Be Done With HarrimanP
ii -mi. narriman nopeu to learn precisely
where he stood, as to the federal government.
as a result of last night's conference
Hi the White House, he must he a disappointed
min today. There may be some
comfort, to be sure, in the fact that there
lias been no straight-out announcement
that the administration is to proceed to put
the President's Indianapolis speech into effect
by making an example of Mr. Harrl
man a* or.e >i mt' uau magnates wnom
lit denounced ;n that utterance. But there
are indications at the same time that the
conclusions reached by those who participated
in the conference were purely tentative
and that prosecution may foUow later.
The prime question Involved in this matter
is whether there is actual need of a full
deni' r.stration of the federal powers In the
premises. That Mr. Harriman and his associates
have engaged in some very questionable.
if not actually .1 legal, transactions
In connection w. h the financing of his several
deals. is generally accepted by the
country at large The main point of desire,
of course, is that steps should be
taken [ > put a stop to such methods of jugfc.ing
tlie properties of stockholders and
inert?::ig the transportation lines, and thereby
limiting the range of competition. Punitive
measures would serve. to l>e sure, as a
terrible example to all financiers, if exe#11?

that is the last resort. Has the case come
to the point at which it is desirable to discharge
the heaviest bolt in the quiver?
A punishment that is perennially held
over the heads of offenders, and never inll'ted,
becomes after a time of no avail in
restraint. Damocles grew Vi familiar with
Jiis peril that he was no longer oppressed
liy It. The President, It is well known,
lias a way of looking upon a law as something
to be enforced whenever violated. He
does not believe in allowing statutes to fall
lr,to desuetude, to be repealed by failure to
apply. It m i> be readily assumed that he
is> therefore at this time an advocate of immediate
punishment in cases where the offense
is proved.

But Mr. Rvan should think twice before
offering for such an honor. The place would
Hoi suit him. Rich men ha/e reached the |
Senate, but few of them have been either
useful or comfortable there. Those who
failed, ' 'ed dismally. They loafed through
a term or two, and then were glad to drop
out, as the country was glad to have them
do so. Coming into the chamber without
qualifications for such an arena, they we're
little more than spectators. They could but
sit and observe the play. Their own parts
were very small, and not speaking parts.
They shaped no policies, wrote no reports,
made no addresses. The public wondered
at their presence In such a place, and explained
it in but one way.
In Virginia the political leaders have, as
a rule, been poor men, who had made a
study of public questions. Even John S.

to change his residence so late In life and
offer at once for so high an office would
challenge the traditions, and it might shock
the pride, of the Old Dominion. We shall

The Offer of France.
The suggestion coming from Paris that
the French government's good offices are at
the disposal of the I'nited States in order
to straighten out the questions affecting
this country and Japan is somewhat premature,
to say the least. There is no such
embarrassment as to warrant the intervention
of a third party. The questions
now pending between the United States and
Japan do not turn unon difficult issues.
They bear In the main upon the point of
how far the United States can go in guaranteeing
the security of the persons and
property of Japanese resident in California,
where they are subject to a somewhat
heated mob sentiment by no means reflective
of the general sentiment of the
country. The United States has at no time
expressed the least disinclination to go to /
the limit of the federal powers to enforce
the terms of existing treaties. If Japan
is dissatisfied*with these conditions there
can be no possible ground for a breach of
If the I'niteu States were disposed t? act
cavalierly toward Japan at this juncture
there might be warrant for the suggestion
that now comes from Paris. It is not to
be thought for a moment that the exact
situation is misunderstood abroad. Therefore
the conclusion is inevitable that the
main desire of the French government is
to secure the co-operation of the United
States in the new adjustments between the
powers. These adjustments are taking the
frtrm nf ca.r-.iHnH nr trooti^a r*f
alliance. The latest is that between France
and Japan, which recognizes the integrity
of China. The United States cannot well
agree to enter upon any such series of arrangements.
Its traditional policy, from
which there is no present reason for it to
depart, precludes its joining with the powers
of Europe In any bargains of the
sort, even thouerh it has more than once
proclaimed Itself as favoring the preservation
of China from partition.
As for the Japanese situation, It will
surely yield to reasonable treatment if the
jingoes of Japan do . not force the hand
of the government at Tokio and if the people
of California, on their part, pay due
respect to the international obligations of
the United States.

In its trips to and from the scSne of today's
accident the ambulance of the Emergency
Hospital passed for a considerable
part of the distance along cobble-stoned
streets. On leaving Pennsylvania avenue
at 12th street, going west with patients,
the ambulance was driven through D street
over this rough form of pavement. This is
indeed the usual route for the hospital
wagon on all trips from the main business
section, where a very large per cent of the

It requires no acuteness of imagination to
conceive the discomfort, if not the danger,

suffice to put this peculiarly important
street in proper condition, and it is to be
hoped that this item will be added to the

was recently passed by the legislature and
sent to him for Indorsement In the course
of official events. The mayor, however,
lacked the courage to' do thejob of vetoing
himself, but performed it by proxy, skipping
out of town just at the psychological
moment to relinquish his office temporarily

mayor's veto minsage was framed with
full knowledge of his chief's desires and
ideas may be accepted. That it goes to
Albany as a McCiellan veto is the general
opinion today. And the net result of it
all will doubtless be that the bill will be
passed over the veto and will become a
law, leaving the mayor in the rather unpleasant
plight ef having lacked the nerve
to put himself on record against It and
the spirit to approve it and thus invite the
fullest possible investigation of the election
The acting mayor's veto message, which
is read as an echo of the mayor's own
words, puts the objection to the measure
on several grounds, chiefly that the contestant
for the mayoralty, Mr. Hearst, has
his rights sufficiently safeguarded by ordinary
court processes. It is a somewhat notorious
fact that Mr. Hearst's rights in
court were vigorously and persistently denied
by Mr. McClellan, and that it was
only when they were fully affirmed by the
highest court of the state that they were
acknowledged at the city hall. It was because
of the assurance that the court pro
ceedir.gs would be still further obstructed
by the mayor that the special enactment
wa3 sought from the legislature, to permit
an earlier ascertainment of the truth with
regard to the election.
Mayor McClellan had rv glorious opportunity
immediately after the election, when
the cry of fraud was first raised. If he
had then consented to a full recount of the
ballots he would have stood to lose nothing
but an office to which he had no rights.
He might have won both the office and tne
esteem of the community. He may now
lose the office and he has long since lost
the public esteem.
