THE EVENING STAR.
With Sunday Morning Edition. WASHINGTON. TUESDAY January 14, 1908 CROSBY S. ?! 0 YES Editor Entered as ?econd-cla?s m?i! matUr at the post office at Washington, D. C. THE ST A* has ?-regular *n? perma nent Family Circulation much mora than the combined circulation of the other Washington dailies. As a News and Advertising Medium It has no competitor. t* Xn order to avoid delays on account of personal absence letters to THE STAB, should not he addressed to any Individual connected with the oflloe, hut simply to THE STAH, or to the Editorial or Businoss Department, aocording to tenor or purpose. Mr. Bryan's Warning. This is from the- Commoner, and the New York National Democratic Club and other anti-Bryan organizations will please take notice: -It is an insult to the intelligence of the party to say that any man or coterie U men could tor selfish or clique r^ons dictate the i -ourse oi the paity in i. --Certainly democrats learned something jn the experiences of l'.HH, when the spe cial interests had their way, so tar as concerns convention results. "Democrats know, too. that at this tim when the American people are demanding relief from trus,. imposition the candluate and the platform must be representative of the interests of the masses. "Mr. Bryan has not sought to influence the choice other than to the ex^nt saying that the important duty shal not be relegated to individuals witn l. act to the detriment of the pait> and tut public, and to the advantage ot the ele ments from whose oppressions iheAmer ican people are at tins very moment turn ing." Cf rtain democrats should have learned something in the experiences of 1?M. but apparently they did not. The same in Huenees which brought about the noml nation of Judge Parker are seeking to bring about the nomination next July of another such man. They would lie satis lied with Judge Parker himself again if any hope of his election could be enter tained. But his defeat was too over whelming to render his renomination pos sible or advisable. This time th^ "spe cial interests" arc making overtures to Judge Gray. Judge Harmon. Senator^ Cul berson. Senator Daniel and others. Theirs is the elderly spinster's prayer about a husband: "Anybody, Bold, but send h^m quick:" ? We all know the experiences to which Mr. Bryan refers. The "special inter ests," after nominating Judge Barker and inducing him to qualify the platform with his famous telegram, turned to Mr. Bryan and asked his assistance in the cam paign. He comp\ied with the request, and became the star of the stump, lie gave lus hand to the i "special interests," and aid all lie could fqr them. He drummed for votes in all the spates where his influence was strong, and failed only because the more ardent of 'the free silverites would not, even at lAs solicitation, join Wall1 street in its attempt to capture the presi dency. But suppose the "special interests" do prevail agaiti. Suppose the Denver con vention is Controlled as the St. Bouis con vention was. Suppose a candidate as ob jectionable to the Bryanites as Judge patter was is nominated, and the Cleve landUes. as In Judge Parker s case, take cliafge of his campaign. And suppose ' they turn to Mr. Bryan again and ask l.im to take the stump for the ticket. WlllTie do it? Knowing that Wall street has again prevailed within the party, will Mr. Bryan lend a hand in its effort to pre vail over the country? And if he does, will his followers again rebel, and either by sulking or supporting the other ticket at the polls increase the republican .strength? Mr. Bryan's warning is signifi cant, but it might be made more emphatic, ^^ybe he will make it so later. Botten lire Hose. Another commentary on the government of the city of New York may be read in the published accounts of the recent 4th avenue tire. Forty-live lengths of tire hose burst while the tight against this tire was 'in progress. It is reported that the New York Board of Fire Under writers yesterday took up in earnest the question of rotten hose and made a oar tial round of the fire companies engaged at this tire to examine the hose. Condi tions turned out to be even worse than was expected. The Merchants' Association of New York has addressed a letter to Mayor Mc Clellan in which it is said that: "The extraordinary inefficiency of the hos??as once more demonstrated at the t nt tire on 4th avenue?is such that had a strong wind been blowing on that invasion <.as was rather to be expected at tnis season of the year) that sweeping conflagration which the merchants of this city so much fear might very well have occurred. "We unqualifiedly indorse the recom mendations in the report recently con vi yed to the lire commissioner by the New* York Board of Fire Underwriters, and most strongly urge that such appro priation b-- made immediately -as will properly equip the tire department with "?iose, the s:*cifieations for which shall not militate against securing material of the best quality." The lire department of New York is one of the city departments which is sel dom involved in scandal. It is not even now charged that this department is re sponsible for having lines of rotten huse. It is not plausible that firefighters w<Wlld provide themselves with unsafe supplies. Most likely the fault will be found out side of the department, but wherever found it should be quickly rectified and ilii presence of rotten hose in a fire de partmcnt made impossible. Slender girls art- said to be fashionable. However, the fact that provisions are to be cheaper may change all that. Mr. liockefeller has not indicated which university gets the sisu'oohe has not paid the government. Bryan and His Cabinet. Savs tlw Boston ?lerald: "TIii" Ohio democrats are again whoop ing it up tor Judson Harmon. A good man, but what'.^ the use?" yh. there's use. Don't forget that if Mr. Bryan is elected President he must have advisers: anil whit better means of developing the resources of the demo cratic party than by naming xand can vassing the merits of its local leaders'.' May not this, indeed, be the real purpose of the whole favorite soil business? Take the case of Judge Gray. He can not be made a serious factor against Mr. Bryan in the presidential race, but where could you find a better man for Secretary of State in a democratic cabinet? He would be just the man for that post. He has the mental equipment, the tempera ment. and rhe experience in public af fairs. required. Delaware is no strangei to the oflh-p. l<ouis MeLane held it for awhile in Jackson's second administration John M. Clayton under Taylor and ther for awhile under Fillmore, and Thomas F Bayard under Mr. Cleveland. Judge Graj belongs to that company. And either Judge Harmon or Senatoi Culberson would make a capital Attorncj I General. The former filled the office for I a time under Mr. Cleveland, and the lat ter started in political life, so to say, as the attorney general of Texas. Both stand high at the bar, and both are in sympathy with their party's anti-trust attitude. For Postmaster General, or Secretary of the Interior. Gov. Johnson of Min | nesota is easily siif?gestcd. His training | has been part journalistic and part politi cal. hut ho possesses good all-around capacity for public business, and would probably provtf a safe adviser. And why not Senator Daniel either for the War or the Navy Department? The appointment would b^ popular in demo cratic circles, as the Virginia senator, on personal grounds, stands as well with the gold bugs as with the siiverites. For the Department of Commerce and L*abor Daniel R. Francis should be suit able. His success in business was the I foundation of his success in politics, and Missouri, for all the compliments paid Gov. Francis, is a Bryan state. Mr. Lincoln's first cabinet 'was excep tionally strong, and several of those who composed it had been bis rivals for the presidential nomination. Their candi dacies had developed their high qualities, | and Mr. Lincoln gave the country the benefit of their services. Mr. Bryan might copy so illustrious an example with bene fit to all concerned. It cannot be said : that the men named are his rivals, as ' Seward and Chase and Cameron were I rivals of Mr. Lincoln, but the mention of , their names in connection with the presi dency has brought out their best points, and suggested where they would serve to advantage in a democratic administra i tion. Cuba. The program announced by Secretary Taft for Cuba seems to meet all the re quirements of the case.- It is quite as Im portant that we should not withdraw too soon as that we should not withdraw at all. We certainly have not been there too long; and fourteen more months should cause the Cubans no impatience. The im portant point for us is to be sure that everything is in order before we surrender the reins. Cuba, by the reports, is In good condi tion. Her crops have been satisfactory, and her treasury shows a surplus. Her populatirn has increased, and foreign In vestments have multiplied. All of this makes for hopefulness. Why should it not continue? Tt will continue, of course, if the Cubans, when once more in control, regulate their affairs with less regard to partisan advantages than td" the general welfare. Applying an adjuration once em ployed here at home, they must raise less hades and more sugar if they would tread the pathway of prosperity. ? The I'nited States was criticised by the opponents of President Palma on a charge that it practically forced him on the Cu ban people. His long residence in this country, it was said, had cost him that intimate touch with his own people which was necessary to the duties of president of the new republic. He played while in office more for American approval than for the approval of Cuba. The result was failure. He remained strong in the con fidence of Americans, but acquired no strength with the Cubans. Whatever there may have been to this charge, the Palma chapter is closed. America has no favorite now. All it de sires in the second president of Cuba is the ability to meet the duties of the office and a friendly disposition toward this country. Cuba should be first in his heart and mind, but at all times as the ally un der the Piatt amendment of the govern ment which made Cuba as a republic pos sible. He cannot serve -his own people' well without serving us well, and vice versa. For another failure, requiring in tervention again by the United States, and Cuba as an independent state will proba bly disappear from the map. Gov. Magoon's work is praised, as it deserves. As for the governor's future, there is time enough to consider that. No cabinet vacancy exists now, but a seat at the table of President Taft, if things should shape tnat way, would be a re ward highly satisfactory to the people of this country, who have come to place a substantial valuation on the man who, like Secretary Taft himself, has served well in every post to which he has been called. How Art Galleries Grow. The cable announces that the Louvre is to be enriched by the art collection of Camille Groult. a wealthy French manu facturer of preserved foods. The money value of the collection is given as $4,000,000, and it is said to be especially rich in the works of Watteau, Reynolds, Turner, Constable and Lawrence. From this interesting bit of news may be drawn a moral. A truly national art gallery grows by gifts and bequests. The greater and more representative the gal lery. the stronger the bid it makes for additions. The more distinguished the gallery, the more inclined men are to have their p-ivate collections become a part of it. With the nucleus of a na tional gallery already established in Washington, it is believed that in time this gallery will bear the same relation to the pictures and statues of the world that the Library of Congress bears to books. "Lou" Payn. "Lou" Payn of New York at the W*hitt House? Well, in the lingo of the old al manac, about this time look out for just such calls. Mr. Payn is a practical poli tician of the old school?antl-everythlng how associated with progress in our poli tics. He has had his ups and downs for half a century, principally ups, in the New York field?confessedly the most dif ficult of all fields. Of recent years his ifowns have multiplied, until little remains of his former power. Still he lives, and still he takes an interest in the game. Of course Mr. Payn talked no politic.? yts terday. He says so himself. People meet ing him think as little of politics as they do of water when they see fish. Mr. Payn was just passing through town and called to pay his respects. What wou'-l visiting politicians do in this town without thaj blessed phrase! It is still asserted that hydrophobia is largely an imaginary disease. But, as sen sational writers demonstrate, the imagina tion. when it goes wrong, is exceedingly bard to cure. It is strange that a man who has had to know as much about finance as Grover Cleveland should have been even slightly embarrassed over any of his bank ac counts. International Amenities. The news of the day embraces an item which appears in humorous contrast to' the many stories of Japanese spies plat ting American harbors, mapping Ameri can poads, sketching American fortifica tions, etc. The item comes from Spring field. Mass.; lacks the hysteria that has marked so many of the "spy dispatches." ' and appears sane and plausible. It fol ? lows: "SPR1NGFIELD. Mass.. January 13 ? ? That the differences between Japan and ? the I'nited States are not considered serious by the War Department was made apparent today when Capt. Koneo. a 1 Japanese military expert, came to this . city to study the manufacture of rifles. r Capt. Koneo had a permit from the War Department, granted at the request of the Japanese minister. ''Capt. Koneo visited several depart ments today and the details of the new ? Cnited Stales magazine rifl#* and the ad vantages of the pointed bullet were ex ! plained to him. He also visited the* ar senal where thousands of rifles are stored for emergency." More significance attaches to this sim ple news message than to reams of Che foo and Shanghai literature. If Congress manages to keep Mr. Williams and. Mr. Dp Armond apart for the rest of the session it must be re garded as having accomplished some thing. .Speaker Cannon is singularly succss ful In absorbing a large amount of power without being alluded to as a cza r. Admiral Brownson is not saying any thing. His exit was draftiatic, but he is not in a position to make curtain calls. Carrie Nation's disappointment may be due to seeing so much prohibition prevalent for which she cannot claim responsibility. There still seems to be a lurking sus picion that Judge Parker may cut loose and say something startling. One of the most gruesome features of the Thaw trial is the enjoyment that so many people seem to derive from it. Gov. Johnson is very strong with the Scandinavian vote?the terrible Swede of politics. It took a mind trained in the law to give Schmitz and Ruef a good opinion of themselves. The chances are that Senator J. Davis will again consent to be his own en thusiastic auditor. SHOOTING STABS. BV PHILANDER JOHNSON. Problems. "Why pay rent?" asked the agent for suburban homes. "That isn't the topic of immediate im portance," answered the tenant. "The question is 'How pay rent?' " "If a man wif a million," said Uncle Eben. "listens to all de advice he gils 'bout what to do wlf it. he ain' got no .time to answer Questions 'bout how he got it." The Cynic. "I wonder if the people in Mars are speculating on whether this earth is in habited by people of superior Intelli gence?" "No," answered Mr. Cumrox. "If they have any facilities for accurate observa tion they probably announce merely that this earth is populated, and let It go at that." No Respite. Still discontent is knocking at our doof; Complaint is loud and strong. The tierce mosquito scarce is gone before The grip germ conies along. Perfectly Peaceful. "So you have decided to leave your man ager?" said the interviewer. "Yes," answered the prima donna. ."Quarrel with your manager?" ?'No, indeed. But the on'y way to avoid one is for us to separate." Appearances. If you feel a disposition to be foremost in affairs. Remember that a man is often judged by what he wears. The way to fame is either very quick or very slow It all depends upon the route by which you choose to go. The mighty volumes that you read; the midnight oil you burn It may be many years before they yield you a return. And on the other hand you may be known, and even feared. If you wear a coat old-fashioned and a hat that's rather weird. The speeches that you make in dim ob scurity may rest, But the world will think about you if you wear a funny vest. You mustn't be disheartened if you find by any chance That they talk more of your whiskers than your views on high finance. As Shakespeare said, the world is all a stage. And there you are. Don't try to run the drama?'be content to be a star. You can't depend entirely on your wisdom or your wit? You've got to watch your make-up if you want to make a hit. The Cuban Experiment. From the New York Times. The people of the United States have reason to be proud of those chapters in their recent history treating ot their rela tions with Cuba. It would have been dif ficult after the war of l!S>8 to find an in telligent European conversant witili for eign affairs who did not firmly believe that our government intended to hold Cuba permanently, and that statements to the contrary were not intended to be taken seriously. But we kept our word by help ing to establish the independence of the Cuban republic, and only returned to the island on the urgent appeal of its people, when their government found its problems too difficult for solution without further aid. The provisional administration of Gov. Magoon has met tihose problems and solved most of them, and when we next leave the Cubans to take charge of their own affairs their house will be in order. Its maintenance will then depend upon themselves. Army Reforms. From the New York Tribune. Gen. Bell would stimulate effort and re ward industry and diligence by creating a new grade?that of warrant officer?out ranking the present non-commissioned grades. The opening of these posts of higher dignity and better pay to competi tion among the enlisted men would, <he thinks, offer a fairer opportunity for ad vancement to the capable soldier than he now enjoys and induce him to persevere in the service, thus creating a large per manent staff of subordinate officers on whose shoulders the task of maintaining the morale and efficiency of the men would largely fall. It is a military axiom that the quality of its non-commissioned officers determines the quality of an army, and any workable plan to raise the stand ards of experience and fitness for these all-important Intermediaries should be cor dially welcomed. Grosvenor as an Independent. From the Chicago Record-Herald. Gen. Grosvenor of Ohio announces that he will run on an independent ticket for Congress next fall. Gen. Gfosvenor as a standard-bearer of political independence will be a sig>ht for gods and men. All-Tale Ticket. From the New York Sun. Taft and Woodruff, heavyweight and bantam, the All-Yale ticket; rah! rah! rah! Stayed at Home. From I'uc-k. As a result of blue Sunday in Gotham a great many husbands have become very well acquainted with their wives and children. Everybody Agrees. From the Baltimore American.
