JTHE EVENING STAB.
With Sunday Morula* Bdltloa. WASHINGTON. THURSDAY June 24, 100? THEODOBE W. NOTES Editor Entered u itcond-clui mall matter it post effle* at Waihlngton, D. O. THE STAB has a regular and perma nent ramily Circulation much more than tl?* combined circulation of tto other Waahlnrton dallies. A* a Mews and Advertising Medium it has no competitor. E7Xn order to avoid delays on aooonnt ?f personal absenos letters to TBI 8TAK should not be addressed to any Individual connected with the office, but ?Imply to THS STAB, or to the Editorial er Business Department, aocordlng to tenor or purpose. Free Raw Materials. The argument of those democrats who advocate free raw materials is this. But one democrat lias occupied the White House sIiumj Buchanan, and his two suc cessful campaigns were waged on plat forms that practically called for free raw materials. But did that feature of the appeal to the people carry either elec tion? The first Cleveland campaign turned not upon principles, but personalities. It wag 110 sooner begun than a slashing trade in personal abuse and denunciation of the two candidates set up. Both parties In dulged in it, to the disgust of the fair men in both. But it never was checked. The only things free and raw heard of were stories about Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Blaine, and they were very free, and pome of them very raw. Besides, in New York, which decided the day, Mr. Blaine ?was deeply cut by the stalwart faction of lils party, paying off the score of the old Blaine-Conkling feud. Not* did the third Cleveland campaign turn upon the tariff. Gen. Harrison was weak with his party because of his dis tribution of patronage, and Mr. Cleveland got the benefit of the anger caused by the Homestead strike, for which, how ever, the Harrison administration was in no wise responsible. The tariff plank in the democratic platform that year was of the free trade variety, but a hard fight In the convention had been necessary to se cure it. The first proposition?favored by all of Mr. Cleveland's personal representa tives in the convention?was a straddle. Although the tariff did not decide the election, as Bbon as the result was an nounced, the business interests took alarm at what had been promised In the name of the tariff, and began to shorten sail. A j panic followed. The distinct winning on the tariff Issue came in 18SHJ. That year Mr. McKlnley, who was a master politician, opposed the tariff to free silver, and carrieu the day. He electrified the country with one sen tence: "Instead of opening the mints, let us open the mills." Amen, responded the country, by a large majority. Many of the mills were then closed, and labor, which had gone against the republicans four years before In a fit of anger, now supported them In the hope of ending a Ipng period of Idleness. It proved a most aensible calculation, for Immediately fol lowing the opening of the mills began times good beyond precedent. Such is the record. Argument Is Just opening on the proposition that to free the raw materials Is the proper way to lead up to free trade, and the country, as it should be, is all attention. The Pistol in the House. The loaded pistol figures once more trag ically In the local news. A small boy is unpacking a trunk in the home of his parents, In the presence of a friend, and comes upon two weapons. He shows these to the other boy, who in obedience to what seems to be an instinct of youth, points one at his comrade and pulls the trigger. The "unloaded" pistol Is dis charged and the boy dies. Here Is an instance to Illustrate the often repeated warning that a loaded pis tol is an object of danger in a house, wherever It may be ^aced. To be of any use In an emergency It must be with in easy reach. If It Is within easy reach It may figure in a homicide or a suicide. The suddenly awakened person may kill a member of the household by mistake. A child may find It and explode It. If it Is not within easy reach It might as well be in a shop downtown as far as resist ing burglars or serving a useful purpose is concerned. If it Is put away as a curi osity it should always be unloaded. If the weapon is a relic of the past, a speci men of an ancient form of gunmaking. it is just as Interesting with its cham bers empty as with them filled. Of course, pistols may be put away loaded with the full Intention of having them safely fired or unloaded later and then forgotten. This is a matter that cannot be neglected without danger. The loaded gun is a menace to life as long as it remains loaded and within reach. Even at the bottom of a trunk It is a possible cause of trouble. It behooves everybody to make sure that there are none of these bidden weapons on the premises, to be found by rummaging children or suddenly disclosed in the course of housecleaning ?r changes. The importance of a king Is consider ably enhanced when an American multi millionaire takes time to stop off and pay him a visit. A great objection to an edible cactus Is the fear that the cook may make a ?nistake and fry the family pin cushion. Mr. Bryan's Latest Request. Mr. Bryan is quoted as saying at Den ver: "I do not wish to discuss politics nor myself. No. I am not a candidate for senator from Nebraska; I do not wish to b?? considered one. "1 believe the public generally would appreciate it if my personal doings were left out in* the future. The public doesn't understand how I am continually bored by reporters seeking interviews. I am ready to Withdraw from the public eye. Of course, I do not wish to be.mis understood. I have no objection to ex pressing my views on public questions, but my personality need not figure In it." Tired at last? The ceaseless racket has palled? Well, why not? For thirteen years? that Is to say, from the adjournment of fhe Chicago convention In 1896?Mr. Bryan has known no privacy. He has been con stantly In the public eye. His goings and comings have been promptly chronicled by the public press. Barring Theodore Roosevelt, he has made more and better "copy" In that time than any other American. We know his manner of sjjeech, both on the platform and In private conversation. We know his "Ideas" In collars and cuffs; In hats, neckties and sack coats. In a word, we all know the man, the orator and the prophet. For a time this sort of thing, must have been agreeable to Mr. Bryan. When It began he was young and handsome, well pleased with himself, and pleased to sec others pleased. There was Intoxica tion in the thunderous applause of the crowded halls. There was inspiration In the smiles and handclasps that met him everywhere. And there was profit, too. Gate receipts mounted high. A weekly 4 newspaper under his direction took a pay ing hold on the public. Everything he touched?except presidential nominations turned to sold and gladness. But now Mr. Bryan asks quarter. He asks it in the name of the public, but is seeking his own personal comfort. It is Mr. Bryan who wants a rest?a rest from reporters, from toadies, from glad-hand ers of every grade, from the overpraise of friends and from the detraction of enemies. Reasonable as the request is. it will probably not be granted. Mr. Bryan be longs to the public. He has declared that as long as he lives he will be active in politics, and he may be sure that as Ions as he is active in politics he will com mand public attention. He will continue to make good "copy" to the end of the chapter. He parted with privacy of his own free will and accord, and "all re grets are now in vain." What he says, what he wears, what he eats and where he sleeps will continue to pass the read ing desks of the newspapers. The celeb rity has no rights that the public feels bound to respect. This appeal is particularly useless now. Speculation about 1912 is already in cir culation. and Mr. Bryan figures in it as prominently as he did in that which touched the nomination of 1W8. To sub ordinate him, or drop him altogether, wiould make the drama tame. Th? star must keep the boards and his place in the cast. Mr. Aldrich and the Senate. This inquiry is current: Is Mr. Aldrich "a biger man than old Grant," or has the Senate fallen so low that it can be led by any man of shrewdness and ag gressiveness? Mr. Aldrich is an able man, and enjoys the prestige of his ability and long service in the Senate. In this tariff debate he has loomed large by reason of his familiarity with the subject and his position as chair man of the finance committee. But he is far from being "the whole thing." He has assumed nothing, usurped nothing. He has been speaking for the majority of the finance committee, and the committee, and not Mr. Aldrich, has been sustained so far by a majority of the Senate. That is the story, ac everybody in Washington knows. * Of course it suits the purposes of the democratic senators to magnify the power of the Rhode Island leader. They are playing politics. They are getting ready for next year's congressional campaigns. The note of attack then will be on the alleged surrender of the republican party to one man. But for Mr. Aldrich, the country will be told, there would prob ably have been a fairly satisfactory re vision of the tariff from the protection standpoint. It was he who held up his party and the people, and forced through a measure without any sort of merit. And so forth. This is the game that has been played in the matter of the House. Ever since Mr. Cannon has been Speaker he has been characterized as a czar, and the House denounced as a tool in his hands. There would have been, would now be,' deliberation and better legislation in that body but for him. The public at last is better advised as to Mr. Cannon and the House. It now sees that whatever blame attaches there should be borne by the republican party. The Speaker has acted under the rules of the majority, and has never been the master, but always the servant, of the House. He owes his office to his ability, but in his office he has had, and ha3, limitations. We may see the same result In the mat ter of Mr. Aldrich and the Senate about the tariff bill. The Rhode Island Senator is the master of neither the flnance com mittee nor the Senate. He owes his place as chairman of that committee to his ability, but in it has his limitations. His republican associates are not puppets in his or anybody else's hands. They have been as busy as he In the work of tariff revision. If the tariff till fails because of the Senate's share in shaping It, let the blame be put on the republican majority there; and let the praise go to the same source if the bill succeeds. There is no one-man power in the Senate on any proposition. A Familiar Mob Trick. Another jailer?this time in Georgia has been deceived by a mob. The trick is to call a Jailer up about midnight, or a little later, to receive a prisoner. When he opens his door he is seized, his keys secured, and a prisoner, already in his custody, taken away and done to death. It is strange there should be a jailer in the country ignorant of such tactics. Such cases by the score have been re ported In the newspapers with full de tails. Any such call at a late hour of night should arouse suspicion. Do jailers read the newspapers? The number of people who are de scribing personal experiences in the Roosevelt hunting territory suggests that Africa Instead of being a wilderness Is In danger of being overpopulated. Possibly Cuba would be willing to set tle that Spanish claim If an arrangement v id be made by which it is to be taken ..at in lottery tickets. Complaint by the sugar trust that public sentiment is unfriendly Bhould be accom panied by some proof that the public has reason to be otherwise. A safe and sane Fourth of July can undoubtedly be made as attractive and interesting as the other kind. The Congressional Record Is drifting into the magazine habit of using the old, old stories with new characters. When it comes to the tariff, Mr. Payne appears to be regarded by Mr. Aldrich simply as an innocent bystander. If the consumer had any real grit he would have at least resented being called a myth by threatening a libel suit. Suburban Home Gardens. The citizens of Langdon and the neigh boring suburbs, comprising the Rhode Island Avenue Suburban Citizens' Asso ciation, have organized a movement which deserves to be copied in other parts of the District They have offered prizes for the most complete house gardens and grounds, the best-kept vegetable gardens and the best-appointed chicken yards. They have selected a committee on awards, comprising men of prominence in the District, thus insuring the render ing of a decision outside of local senti ment and prejudice. This Is the true spirit of good citizen ship In the matter of making the best of the materials at the hand of the home maker. Many naturally beautiful suburbs are spoiled by the lack of attention to the landscape possibilities afforded. Sub urban life Is not necessarily' unkempt and slovenly. It is, on the contrary, more easily possible to maintain a high standard of artistic quality in and about the home beyond the range of urban con gestion than within the city limits. There Is usually plenty of ground for Improve ment. Shrubs may be planted and vines grown. The space within which the average suburban house is set may be kept in a neat condition with a small expenditure of time and money. The suburban home-garden movement, If organised throughout the District, will go far toward making the capital one of the most beautiful places of resi dence In the world. During the last few yearn the outward movement of home seekers has been steadily increasing. Sub divisions are being laid out in all di rections, almost in all cases with the rule of erecting detached or semi-de tached houses. The lots are almost al ways large enough to permit both flower and vegetable gardening on at least a small scale. The Rhode Island Avenue Association has taken an effective step toward enlisting the forces of improve ment and deserves thanks for the enter > prise that has been shown. # ? ??i i i .1 i In . the goodness of their hearts the weather experts may occasionally prom ise a downward revision of the ther mometer, but circumstances are liable to prevent them from producing th6 goods. Fortunately, the American people did not repose their confidence in William H. Taft because of any expectations that he would be a golf champion. Washington's base ball players have again proved that they are not necessarily indigenous to last place. Howard Gould's check book is as full of picturesque thrills as a best seller. SHOOTING STABS. BT PHILANDER JOHNSON. Defiant of Fashion. "Those people don't seem to care what the world thinks of them," said the fash ionable woman. "How do you know?" "They still play progressive euchre and croquet." Time Saving. "So you think that pictures serve a more Important purpose than literature?" "Yes. Nearly everybody would rather send a post card than write a letter." An Incomplete Program. The lightning bug once more draws nigh? A thins of beauteous wonder. It's lucky that it need not try With every flash to thunder. Documentary Evidence. "What shall I say if Algernon proposes to me?" said the confiding young woman. "Tell him you want time to think It over," replied the worldly wise friend, "and then change your summer residence, so that he will have to discuss the matter in writing." "You can't alius Jedge a man by his manifestations," said Uncle Eben. "Some folks dat sings hymns depends mo' on a good voice dan on a good conscience." Tangled Memories. I'm haunted by night and made anxious ?by day By certain acquaintances far, far away. Through arts telepathic I wish I miglit find Relief from the doubts that are filling my mind. There's a heroine fair in mldocean some where And another suspended 'way up in the air. There's a lass who was sought by a scoundrel complete? I'm wondering Just how he managed to meet The fate that is due his malevolent crew. There are brave men who flourished awhile In my view In armor of khaki or plain evening drees, Their rewards all In vain I endeavor to guess. Some day when I've rolled up a million or so And have little to do as the hours come and go I'M resume the careers now So far In arrears Of the persons who moved me to sighing or sneers. For those stories continued in bulk I will send And read them all through from begin ning to end. An Old-Fashioned* Fourth. From the Rochester Post-Express. One of the signififant signs of the times is the revival of interest in old-fashioned things. People are furnishing their houses with the simple but substantial furniture of their forebears; they are using rag carpets and rugB, and are even decorating the walls with these rough and-ready weavings of the domestic loom. They arc also harking back to the patch quilts and colored counterpanes that were the vogue whpn grandmother was a girl. Anything so long as it is old seems to -be the slogan of the day. In view of this, why not revive the old-fashioned Fourth? The old-fashioned Fourth was an Institution, and as such it should not be suffered to become wholly obsolete. Of course, an exact reproduction of the old fashioned celebration, such as our moth ers and fathers enjoyed, would not be possible in a city of this size; but a pro gram could be arranged that would ap proximate the event, so to speak?a pro gram that would Include many distinctly patriotic features, such as the playing of appropriate music, the delivery of brief addresses pitched in a patriotic key, in the morning, and ball games and other Bports in the afternoon; in the evening fireworks and refreshments on the lawns. Such a program could be carried out in a spirit of co-operation, and It would sub stitute significant features for the bar baric practices at present in vogue, mak ing it in the fullest sense of the word a festal day rather than a day of terror, anxiety and dread. Picnic Days. Front the Col ambus Journal. These are picnic days?days for the woods, for the fresh green grass, for the deviled eggs, for the raspberry pie, and for the girl with the- white frock and the heart-splitting laugh. If you let the sweet June days ripple by, without plung ing into one of these woodsy affairs, and butterflying yourself through the leaf sprinkled sunshine, and letting some sweet merry widow girl cut you off a huge chunk of Jelly cake?if you fail to deck your life with these experiences, what does it amount to anyhow? The soul must have its days to romp, to wade in the creeks and swing from the branches of the trees. If it hasn't, it will get hard and dry, and yo>u can't make a dent in it with a line of poetry or the touch of a vanished hand. Seeing a person in a a parlor or an office is only half seeing him. You must go out among the dryads and the naiads and the sweet spirits of the emerald outdoors, and talk to him with a mouthful of fried chicken and an earful of women's voices. Less Noise. From the Springfield Republican. The Ideal city will surely be considerate of the nerves of Invalids and particularly of children; and noises will be regulated, with a view to the maintenance of a high standard of public health, quite as much as the smoke nuisance or garbage collect ing. In the ideal city there will be no raucous monstrosity of a steam whistle to give alarms of fire at all hours of the night as well as of the day, making ner vous children jump out of their sleep and lose hours in finding nature's sweet restorer again. Nor will the Ideal city, whether it be Boston or Springfield, tol erate certain other unnecessary Ingredi ents of the general din. What these are may be left for the individual to specify, since nearly every one has a particular dislike of a special noise; and, in view of the fact that a city/ even an ideal city, cannot exist in a dead silence, it might be possible to eliminate obnoxious sounds only by a consensus of opinion concerning them.
