Koptemoor o.?uiory came to the Baltimore members of the Boys' Brigade of America yesterday when the 1st Maryland Regiment, including the oldest companies and batteries organized in the jcity, won the Rope cup in the big parade held in connection with the fifteenth annual convention of the organization. The judges decided that this regiment made the best showing. Parade a Triumph. Distinct as was the triumph of the Baltimore soldiers, the parade from beginning to end was a triumph for the whole organization. The marching of the little boys was a surprise to those who have wondered howlads so small could hold 011 to a gun, much less traverae half of the city. The streets all along the route of the parade were thronged with spectators. Manyparents who did not accompany their boys, made a special visit to the city to see the parade, which was one of the features of the convention. In the line there were more than if.OOO boys and officers. Gen. Bope Will Betire. At the meeting last night at Westminster Presbyterian Church Rieut. Gen. Bope announced that lie would retire as commander and hereafter serve in ttie ranks in the brigade. He has been an enthusiastic worker in the boys' armytor fifteen years, and for the last eight j years lias been commander.

"Not only will the coming election directly affect the executive branch of the government, but it Is mcst important in its relation to the judicial branch. Rarely has the choice of President involved more far-reaching consequences. For it is not improbale -that the next President will appoint at least four judges of the United States Supreme Court. Upon these appointments will largely depend the quality r?f the judicial work of this great court for years to come. Congress may pasi laws, hut the Supreme Court interprets and constrr.es them, and determines their validity. Tito Constitution, with its guartntees of liberty and its giants of federal power, is finally what the Supreme Court determines it to mean. "Tpon the learning, wisdom and charac ter of the judges of the Supremo Court rests not merely the jnst determination of Hie important matters of private right which ooir.e before that august tribunal, but to a very largo degree the course of ruir political history and the development and security of our institutions. In view of the vacancies which 111 the natural course of events will most ptobably occur during the next few years, we must remember that we are about to choose a representative of the people to whom is confided the nomination of federal judges, a power second to none possessed hv the President, the exercise of which calls for the highest judgment. "Both parties demand a revision of the tariff. But they differ in the principle and aim of such revision. The republican party stands for the policy of protection. It maintains its historic position In defense of American standards of living and uf the American scale of wages. The iemoeratic party seeks, as Mr. Bryan construes its platform, to overthrow protection and to establish a revenue tariff. Instead of readjustment of protective rate? and a fair arrangement of schedules consistent witli the long established policy of the country under which our trade has been developed and our industrial activities have attained their notable expansion, he insists on en overthrow of the entire system of protection, thus threatening the dislocation of trade and the most serious disturbance of industry. Hf seeks not tariff revision but tariff revolution.* Mr. Bryan appears to recognize the serious consequence of su.-h a course and in announcing his position he hast ens to assure us that 'the democratic plat does not contemplate an immediate change from one system to the other; ii expressly declares that the change shal be gradual, and a gradual change Is onlj possible where the country is satisfied wituh the results of each step taken. Bryan's Remedies for Trusts. "When, however, we consider thes< other remedies that are proposed for th? trusts, wo find ourselves journeying in j land of dreams. Again the magician ol 18f*J waves his wand. At a stroke dif Acuities disappear and the complex prob lems of modern business are forgotten ir the fascination of the simple panacea And as the free coinage of silver in tin ratio of lfi to 1 was to destroy the cursi of gold, so the new-found specific o ecjual perfection is to remove the curs< of industrial oppression. The delusion o UtrtK is comparable only to that of twelve years ago. "The patent laws confer a trup monop oly in the exclusive right to manufacturi and sell Are these laws to be repeale< because a 'private monopoly is indefensi ble and intolerable-? Ts it prflt>osed t< apply the prohibition of control of mon than TiO per cent to patented articles? "It is the function of law to define an? punish wrongdoing, and not to throtth business. In the fields of industrial activity the need is that trade should hi fair: that unjust discriminations and il legal allowances giving preferential acres: to markets should l>e prevented: tha coercive combinations and improper prat tiees to stifle competition should he deal with regardless of individuals; but tiia honest industry, obtaining success upot its merits, denying 110 iust opportunity to its competitors, should not be put un der prohibitions which mingle the inno cent and the guilty in a common con demnation. "The plan proposed by the democrats platform to provide for a guarantee ol bank deposits is also open to serious objection. Mr. Taft promptly pointed out Its weakness, and Mr. Bryan, despite hit skill, has been unable effectively to answer his criticisms. The plan proposes tc make the honest and prudent banks meet losses for which they are in no way responsible. Mr. Bryan replies that all banking restrictions operate to curtail the freedom of the prudent because of the dangers arising from the abuses of others. But it is one thing to put a business unrlr?r riAOilArl rintlf>nu nnorntincr inrnor tially and quite another to compel hanks to make good specific losses not attributable in any way to their neglect or default. Interests of Labor. "The republican party lias been solicitous of the rights of labor. Mr. Taft it clearly right when lie says that 'not since the beginning of the government has any other national administration done so much for the^ause of labor by the enactment of remedial legislation as has Theodore Roosevelt and the republican congresses elected to sft during his term of office. And in support of this assertion he instances the re-enacted employers' liability act, the safety appliance acts, the government employes' compensation act, provision for the Investigation of mine disasters and legislation with respect to child labor in the District of Columbia, lie has exposed the disingenuousness of the plank in the democratic platform that "injunction should not be issued in any cases in which injunctions would not issue if no Industrial disputes were Involved'?a Janus-faced proposal, meaning what you like. Tile republican party has taken a reasonabio attitude upon the injunction question. Hut more important to labor than any benellts which may reside in improved procedure in injunction cases is the opportunity to work. It prolits little to a workingman to be told tliar be will be given the right to trial by Jury In case he is guilty of contempt of court if those who promise it propose to enter upon a fatuous course of arbitrary interference with trade. The prosperity of the workingman fundamentally depends upon wise, conservative and unbuilding policies, and demands that efforts to reform industrial evils should be carefully conceived and prosecuted without endangering the stability of legitimate business enterprise. Progress Must Be Sure. "But while we freely criticise opposing nrnirru mn and candidacies, we as freely recognize that no party lias a monopoly of patriotic motive or for sincere endeavoi to contribute to the welfare of the nation. Divided into different groups, espousing different principles and advocating conflicting methods, our citizens are imbued with the same love of country and arc inspired by the same devotion to It? interests. We criticise each other without bitterness, realizing that in the contests of public discussion we tind tlie surest protection of our institutions, and that we may confidently rely upon the final judgment of an intelligent and conscious electorate. I have an abiding confidence in the progress of -the people. Reslstiensly they move forward to the attainment of their goal. "Every privilege maintained at the expense of the common interest will finally go the way of despotism and ancient tyranny. But in our progress we must seek to avoid false steps. Ours must he the rule of reason, clear-eyed. calm, patient and steadfast; defeating the conspiracies of intrigue and escaping the pitfalls of folly. Supreme must be the sense of justice, with its recognition of our mutual dependence. We cannot change m -- ? 4-- ?"

For the people would ! ave gathered headway i again until their purpose was worked out. "But extravagant schemes and emotional agitators can wreck it. "In the American people's mighty moral advance, thus far succassfu'ly led by Theodore Roosevelt, the gravest question is whether we shall place our comman der's standard in the hands of ..is most trusted captain, who will lead us safely ( and surely along the well marked course ' we are following, or in the hands of those who will lead us on zig-zag marches after rash adventures until the whole movement dissolves in the people's disgust and the world's ridicule. Seven years ago we started upon the great work, of modern and humane legislation that lias made the Roosevelt period historic. In those yearn wv passed the railroad rate bill, ' the meat inspection 1 and pure food laws, the irrigation law. the employers' liability law. the law forbidding railways from requiring employes ! to work an inhuman number of hours without rest, the safety appliance act, the Chinese exclusion act and the government employes' liability law. These Are Not Bryan's. "All these are republican laws. Kach of them was opposed secretly or openly by both democrats and republicans. But each of them was urged by a republican President. originated by republican statesmen and some of them- were not even thought of outside the republican thirty. For example, even Mr. Bryan never dreamed of the meat inspection and pure food laws, >et these laws means more to the health of the American people tiian all tiie curious devices he ever ' proposed. 1 "In these seven- Jiistoric years we have also advanced the American name throughout the world, increased toward us the good will of nations and added to our lasting power in international af: fairs. At home and abroad our work already done has been so vast that the world speaks of it with praise and won. der; but we are midway in that work, and the question is whether ,-e shall go on until we finish it. 1 "Mr. Bryan complains that it is not finished nov. But n hrict- nt ? ic L the way to build a house. Would 'you trust au architect who promised to build it in the wink of an eye? The instantaneous statesman writes no souni laws, works no lasting; reform. Aladdin rears none hue imaginary palaces. "Of the work that remit s. the first is to revise the tariff. The tariff we shall make will protect American industries, and also open foreign markets to American products. A straight-out revenue tariff is ancient: a single protective tariff is out of date. We republicans propose to keep up with the times. The modern tariff is a maximum and minimum tariff and the republican idea is to meet other commercial r tlons with their own weapons. Such a tariff will sell abroad ' many head of live stock, barrels of flour, manufactured articles, where one now is "sold.

When the tariff commission idea was advanced Mr. Bryan opposed it in formal printed debate. When* a tariff commission bill was introduced in Congress every democrat was hostile to it. A democratic vote is a certain vote asainst a tariff commission. A republican vote is a possible vote for this businesslike^ reform. "Every labor law we rave passed auu will pass Is a part of that web ?jf industrial questions whlcli we tall the labor problem. Hut, after all. the fundamental labor problem is the problem of employment and pay.

"All this has come during republican administrations. We plan to continue and i increase it. Recovery From the Panic. "We are quickly recovering from the briefest panic In our history. Let workingnien contrast that panic with the one that occurred under the last democratic administration and then answer this question for themselves: Will the election o? Mr. Bryan or Mr. Taft best help the rapidly improving business of the country? And remember that active business means well paid employment. "That Mr. Bryan and the apposition would make business practically impossible is proved by their national franchise I plan. They propose that every enterprise big enough to do business in more titan one state shall secure a national license, which ran be granted or withdrawn by any administration. But no business can succeed without certainty; no business man could afford to invest a dollar when he knew that his very right j to do business at all might be taken . away by the caprice of a President or the accident of an election. The franchise i plan makes every President a four years' ' czar, with absolute power over the life i and death of every business concern large enough to trade throughout the nation. Comparison of Bryan and Taft. "This is a campaign of candidates even more than of p'atrorm. me question is 1 not which candidate is most upright, pa- 1 triotio, brave, for both are equally so. | Both mean equally well toward their | country. j "The real question is which candidate ( will make the best President?
