Underrating the Enemy. Thla statement Is accredited to Chair man Hitchcock, who is now in Colorad conferring with tlie republican leaders o the west: "We believe that Taft will carry Nei York. Ohio. Indiana. Minnesota. Ken tucky and such other states In the eas that the democrats claim are doubtful, s we are coming west to pave the way to the success of the republican ticket Ii the western states. We expect to carr; every western state, leaving the demo crats only a few in the south, wher democracy still prevails." According to this calculation, nothlni but a grease spot will be left of the dem ocratlc party. Roosevelt's triumph ove Parker will look small by comparlsoi with Taft's over Bryan. Wherever a con test Is waged Taft will win. Has not Mr. Hitchcock been misquoted A wise general never underrates the en emy. He does not count his trophies be fore they are captured. He wants ever; man to do his duty, and, in order to in sure that, he must Inspire every man wltl the feeling that his full part is essentia to success. Mr. Hitchcock has gone west for tin purpose of bringing factions together an< getting out the party vote. He has heart that Mr. Bryan is stronger there than Ji the campaign of 1IW0. An eastern man be wants to see the west and talk wltl the western leaders on western soil. It does not seem likely, therefore, tha Mr. Hitchcock Is 'Jollying" the westen men with assurances that everything 1: safe in this direction; that the Chicagi ticket will sweep the country this side o the Mississippi; that practically there an no doubtful states except in democrat!) Imagination, and that*the thing to do is t< make the choice unanimous outside of th< gulf states. "Jollying" is the province of men without official responsibility. This is th< time for Judge Taft to be hailed as th< next President by men of good natur< and politicians who may meet him in public or in private and have only the con ventions of society in view. Nobody is either heartened or discouraged by suet talk. Judge Taft himself knows Its val ue. or lack of value. He smiles, but does not relax his energies to make his lettei of acceptance "Just so." He Is taking n< chances, but is working away aa it 01 an extremely doubtful situation. Forecasts at this time are necessarll; fanciful. Matters have not taken shape nor will they for some weeks yet. Wha will be the value of the Hearst move ment? Will he or another lead It? Am If he leads it what will it cost the demo crats. against whom it appears to b especially directed? There are doubtfu states now. How long they will remali so is a question. Bad Cooking and Divorce. Dr. Harvey M. Wiley, the government'! bad-food sleuth, has been recently ad dressing the American Biscuit Makers Association in convention at Atlanta City, and In the course of his remarks hi has offered a contribution to the llteraturi of the divorce problem which should b taken into serious consideration by al thoughtful citizens. He attributes th< evil in large degree to incompetence li the kitchen, to the inability of the wit to bake good bread. Dr. Wiley says: "If the bakers make good bread am then educate the people to buy thel wares, the great destroyer of domestl felicity, dyspepsia, will be removed, am we will hear no more of the dlvorc problem. "Wlfey's bread has been more the en emy of domestic felicity than any othe one thing, and when this cause is re moved we will find a good imitation o the Elysium in our kitchens. The tfou ble has been that lots of the bread in th? country isn't fit to eat. I don't kno? whether you fellows made it or not. bu I'm going to be frank with you, and sa; that somebody's in the wrong somewhere and they'd better look out. "There's too much chemicalized flou being used. I don't see any reason wti; the color nature gave to flour is objec tionable." The American public schools are dolni more now than ever before to equip th girls of the rising generation in this da partment of domestic felicity. There 1 no excuse for a young woman who ha gone through the grades not knowlni how to bake, even though her mot he does not. believe that there Is any plac for her in the kitchen. A good man; mothers make this mistake, which prob ably most of them bewail in later lift There is no disgrace in knowing how ti cook, and many a woman has been throwi into circumstances in which she has ha< occasion to thank her lucky stars tha she was acquainted with the eccentrlcl ties of the kitchen range and qualities o the food supplies. Possibly Dr. Wiley lays the stress o enthusiasm upon the importance of do mestic bakery as a factor in the dlvorc< question, but there can be no denylni his logic: Good food, good temper; ba< food, irritability; good temper, domestli tranquillity; bad temper, trouble? ba< food, trouble* Cause and effect an plainly related.. Mr. Bryan will have to conduct hli speechmaking with some care to avoi< the possibility of being denounced by Mr Roosevelt as a socialist. A member of the notification committer attains about the same amount and qual lty of importance as a presidential elector Distributing Immigrants. For years one of the chief causes fo complaint against the Immigration systen In this country lias been that the In comers have not been properly distribute) -with reference to their best opportunitle; and the most urgent needs of the coun try. Their tendency has been to congre gate in the cities, where they have onl; added to the congestion and the problem; of urban organisation, to their own am the community's disadvantage. At th< same time there has been urgent need o farm laborers' in all directions. Unques tionably much valuable time was waste) by the farmers twenty years ago whei this condition first became noticeable, an< had they then started in systematical!: to seek for settlers and farm laborer there would have been less trouble in bot] the cities and the rural districts. Hen and there they did conduct organiset movements of this nature, and to i large extent the prosperity of the middli iwest la attributed to the manner In whlcl * immigrants of a desirable character have * been induced to move on from the seaboard and to take part in the developing work of the great farming regions. The United States government has now taken a hand in this process ef bringing a the newcomers and the country's needs into closer adjustment. The bureau of immigration has established a division of r Information which has been Instrumental in diverting large numbers of the poorer classes of aliens from the crowded centers * to the agricultural districts. As noted in the news columns of The Star yesterday, this work has proved a great benefit to - the farmers as well as to the immigrants s themselves. This is a proper and ims portant function of the government, and it s is a piiy that it was'not undertaken long s ago. Had the government so moved when the immigration tids began to assume - heavy proportions doubtless many of the municipal problems now awaiting solution would have been avoided or materially lessened In Intensity. ' It is ? question in this connection I whether the greatest good in a broader B distribution of the Immigrants comes from the supply of needed help or from the avoidance of unwholesome city clrcum= stances. The two conditions are correlative. One of the chief faults In our eco.. nomic situation has been the lack of bal0 ance, and If now. however tardily, an eff fort is being made by the government to bring about a better distribution of the * population doubtless excellent results will - be scored for the general Industrial health lt of the people, o n Quffey as an Iagua. * y The Guffeyltes refuse to be comforted. ~ Not all of Mr. Bryan's power can induce e them to turn from the man they have been following. Kerr may do for those ? who want him, or are witling to accept outside dictation, but Col. Guffey still r for the Guffeyltes. They love him the more for the blow he has received. Will this devotion continue? It all de, pends. It will not If Mr. Bryan is elect ed. In that event no Pennsylvania democrat reeking office or favors of any kind y at the hands of the President need hope for success If he Is an uncompromising lj GhfTeylte. The name of Guffey will bej come a hoodoo. And that will tell on the ranks of the GufTeyltes. Politics Is a s selfish game. When a party Is In power j local leaders go up or down as they sucj ceed or fail In securtng patronage. Mr. , Kerr. If strong at the White House, will win over many men now opposed to him. j and be the leader In fact as In name. On the other hand, If Mr. Bryan Is det feated we shall see Col. Guffey resume ! his leadership, and probably become a more Influential than before. It will be , said then that Mr. Bryan got at the polls f what he deserved; that his proclamation ? against bosslsm was hypocritical; that ; his warfare on Col. Guffey was charac> terlstlc. and that the thing now to do Is > to restore the deposed favorite to the place he lost through Mr. Bryan's unwarranted Interference. Farewell to > Kerr. s ? And what will be true In Pennsylvania > will be true elsewhere Democrats now . anti-Bryan or lukewarm cannot hope for . Influence at court If Mr. Bryan Is ele5 vated to the throne. If they have rivals l at home who are Bryan men those rivals are likely to rise In the world and they , themselves go down. Mr. Bryan, as was r shown In the Guffey case, keeps books, i and when an opportunity presents itself j punishes those who in act or at heart oppose it. He is not on the warpath now, Y but if elected he will' use all of his new , power to crush those who have tried to I crush him. He will have none but Bryan cogs In the Bryan machine. a But if he la defeated. Mr. Bryan may _ expect the antl-Bryanltes to muster their e full strength In an effort to wrest all j party influence from him, and turn his j friends out wherever they may be in. Remember Guffey" will be a national cry, heard in largest volume east of the Alleghentes. * American Labor. r The H. C. Prick Coke Company of Pitts, burg is the latest corporation to take the ^ stand of America for Americana as respects labor. It will employ only men e who' are American cltlsens?-men either I born here, or upon coming here from abroad promptly cast their full fortunes 1 with the country. The action, it is g stated, will affect ten thousand foreigners, who after drawing good American wages are now back at home with their money J on a visit. Good for the Prick Coke c Company! It has taken the right step. 1 The man who has a stake in the country e Is the one entitled to the pick of the country's opportunities. The citizen aly ways first. The wanderer?here today . and there tomorrow?caring nothing for f the country but as a place for getting a ' good job?should move on. * France has decided that wines must y have labels which indicate precisely the i, regions In which they werp produced. The , day may yet come when imitation Boston ? baked beans and spurious Philadelphia [ squab will cease to roam this country. An appropriation of $46,000,000 to ims prove Russia's army may present excep' tionally brilliant opportunities for the ~ kind of high finance that flourishes in that country. i <?a i ? 5 One of the biggest though least disr cussed trusts is the circus combine. Pere haps Mr. Roosevelt may be persuaded to y' bring back enough elephants to make it " tremble. t , 1|ri 9 If Mr. Carnegie could vary his library schemes by some device for preventing I the books of financial Institutions from 1 becoming suddenly inaccessible he would - confer another benefit on society. t i ess i . The next interruption to the perusal of r the exciting summer novel will be the ne cessity of showing respectful attention to e the letter of acceptance. I ' *?1 ' I Mr. Bryan has done wonders toward anc swering the people who used to complain d that the democratic party lacked somee thing to talk about. It is quite evident that there is no Intentlon on the part of Mr. Wade Ellis to j drop out of public life yet awhile. Judge Parker hovers around the fascinations of politics with the persistence of ^ the singed moth. The Kaiser as Yachtsman. A report comes from Kiel, Germany, that Emperor William is thinking of challenging for the America's cup and keen r Interest has been aroused among AmerlII ran varhtamen over the nossibllitv nf th? - Imperial sportsman coming Into these was tera with a racer. Recently the kaiser s commissioned a Hamburg yacht builder ' to design a large racing schooner to re* place the Meteor, which was built In this country. If this new creation meets expectations In the races next June it Is believed that, the kaiser will challenge the New York Yacht Club. At this point arises the perpetual question of the terms upon which the America's cup Is defended. The New York club has steadfastly insisted that all contests for the great trophy ehould be sailed under the old rule which permits the construction of racing machines of the Reliance type. Foreign yachtsmen desire that the international rules governing yachting contests should be adopted. These rules eliminate the racing machine and restrict the entries' to practical sailing boats. A challenge by the kaiser would lend great zest to the International yachting situation. He is a keen sportsman and would doubtless spare no trouble or expense to win. It would be will for the sport for another competitor than Sir Thomas Lipton to try for the cup, although no more welcome chal- > lenger could possibly send a boat into these waters than the genial Irish baronet. Nobody is so unreasonable as to expect that money made through corporation activities, but now consigned to individual bank accounts, can be barred from campaign contributions. Public restaurants may yet be brought to such a state of perfection that people i who eat with their knives and consume soup audibly will be persuaded to reform. Health office reports will never discour- J age the girl who really has her mind set on ice cream soda. j "Kern of Kokomo" has an alluringly alliterative sound. j SHOOTING STABS. BY PHILANDER JOHNSON. ' Startling Candor. "Do you keep boarders?" j "Nope." answered Farmer Corntossel. "We don't keep 'em. But there's always new ones droppln' along. An' to tell you | the truth, a summer boarder ain't very good company after the first three or four days, nohow." The Professional Smile. "I suppose you must often smile in spite I of personal cares that oppress you?" "Yes," answered Mr. Stormlngton Barnes, "but only on the stage. I am thankful not to be under the constant strain of a political candidate." ! "Most of us," said Uncle Eben, "puts In a whole lot of our lives vertfyln* advice dat we might jes' as well have took in de fus' place."

Prom the Newark Evening News. ^ Only one fatal accident was reported * In this State on the Fourth of July and ( that was at Trenton. Hut since then no 4 less than six boys have died from injuries 4 received on that day, the most of them in ( all the lingering agonies of lockjaw. Max i Goldstein, ag^d ten, died in the Beth Israel ? Hospital several days ago of a bullet ' wound in his lung. John Koiocabage, ' twenty-five years old, died of tetanus at J the Mountainside Hospital, his hand hav- \ ing been torn by a giant cracker. Howard 4 Sharpley, aged twelve, of Paterson, died 4 of lockjaw on Monday last, the wadding < of a toy cannon having wounded anu * poisoned his hand. Harry Hall, aged < fourteen, and Arthur Berry, aged nine, 1 both of Union Hill, died on Sunday of j lockjaw from Irtdependence day accidents, J and Hollo Terasino, aged ten, of Edge- | water, died in awful convulsions on the _ same day from an injury received on the Fourth while discharging a toy cannon. Let us hope there may be no more, out the sacrifice of seven human beings to an unsafe and Insane way of celebrating the nation's birthday is too great for New Jersey. Check the Sale of Dynamite. From the Brooklyn Eagle. Yesterday a dynamite bomb was exploded in front of a South Brooklyn store. A few nights ago a similar bomb was thrown into the basement of a highclass apartment house In Harlem. Where do these bombs come from? The use of them has become almost as much a matter of course in the news as Italian stabbin* affrays used to be. The dynamite of which they are made must be as easy I to get as whisky and vastly easier than [ morphine. The one thing which makes these men a menace is their ability to get ? hold of dynamite. If they could not get the explosive the bomb-throwing would r stop. The fire department looks after f the storing of this explosive in build- t lngs, but there is in practice a curious t failure to follow its sale, to see that it | comes only into the hands of men who I have a legitimate use for It. ? The Belay Bun. | From the Philadelphia Record. t There Is no doubt that the spectacle of t 2.000 boys running across a good piece of t the United States with that silver tube in relays, through the lakes and over the land, in the dark and by daylight, and keeping well ahead of schedule time, is a mighty Interesting thing, and every healthy man in the country cares more < about it than he does about some things !i of real consequence. South Carolina's Bryanism. From the Charleston News and Courier. Presuming that there are 80,000 BryanItes in South Carolina, wes. dare predict that they will not contribute an aggregate of $4,000 to the election of Mr. Bryan, which is to say that they do not care a glass of soda water or a five-cent cigar each whether he be elected or not. But They Are All Anxious to Come. Prom the Philadelphia Inquirer. The youngest cabinet officer, in point of servloe. is sitting on the lid at Washington and finds it an easier task than W sweating in Manila. Nevertheless, It _ seems likely that he will get a reprieve before the summer is over. No one man ~ ought to be condemned to live all summer in Washington. City Cannot Wait. Prom the New York World.

This is going to be another one of those I years when more people will yell for Bry- I an and vote against him than for any other man in America. Costly Fame! From the Boston Transcript. ^ Any democrat who has an idle ten thou- I sand In his clothes can get his name in the papers by handing it over to the na- I tional democratic committee. Too Funny to Happen. From the Florida Timea-l'nlon. Wouldn't it be a joke on the republicans should Mr. Bryan carry Pennsylvania? Cut Them Short. From tba Baltimore 8uo.
