THE EVENING STAR.
With Sunday Moraine Bdition. WASHINGTON. MONDAY July 19. 1909 THEODORE W. NOYES Editor Catered u second-clsas mail matter at tha past cAc* at Washington. D. 0. STAB has a regular and parma aent Family Circulation mnch more than the combined circulation of tha other Washington dallies. As a Hews and Advertising Medium it has no competitor. CTXn order to avoid delays on aooount of personal absence letters to TKS ?TAB should not be addressed to any individual connected with the office, but simply to THE STAB, or to the Bditorlal or Business Department, according to tenor or purpose. The Chinese Mission. Mr. Charles R. Crane, it i? announced, is acceptable to the Chinese government, and presumably he will be at his post at Peking before long. The appointment is much complimented by those who know Mr. Crane, all of whom expect excellent service of him. It would be incorrect to say that the place went begging, though several men declined it. Politicians with hopes of preferment in politics proper are always wise in staying at home and keeping tab on local changes, while business men, un less able to shift their burdens tempora rily on thoroughly competent shoulders, take a great financial risk in accepting official assignment abroad. The President's patience is well reward ed. He seems to have found, in the end. the very man needed. Mr. Crane has been educated in the field of business, is a student of practical affairs, and a traveler who has taken a look at the world. He knows China from s visit or two. and should easily make himself, at home in office there. Hi.-- sympathies are with the national purpose of strengthen ing American trade interests in the east, and as a man of wide knowledge of trade he should justify the President s judg ment in selecting him. This is the administration's most impor tant diplomatic appointment to date. If we may read in it President Taft s policy, so to spea'k. in that line, we may con gratulate the country. That is to say, if the man in each important case is to fit closely as possible the demands of the ca.?e. the country should be well served In every foreign post. The President is well justified in moving slowly. As matters stand we are satis iactorily represented abroad. The prin cipal places are filled by as competent men as have ever occupied them. All are popular with the people to whom they Hie respectively accredited. Changes will probably be made, although beyond a sort of custom there is no need for change. As the diplomacy of today differs from the diplomacy of a generation ago, so do our diplomats as a rule correspond to the new times. Experience In afTairs, diplo matic and otherwise, counts for more, and political pull for less. Rewards are more now for merit than for the boss. And the improvement is very great. The Senate. The Senate may prepare for some vig orous criticism when the present session closes. Storm signals are flying. In the press and on the Chautauqua circuits it will receive castigations quite in keeping with the worat it has ever received. Much that has taken place there since the Payne bill reached that body Is construed by the critics of the Senate as confirma tory of the oft-repeated charge that it is not in touch with popular sentiment on the leading questions of the day; that it is under special influences and works to special ends, hampering, when it does not defeat outright, the better purposes of the House. The Senate of late years has been abused beyond all possible warrant. It has never been?could not be?the body held up In certain quarters to execration. Its membership on both sides of the chamber has shown a character putting down with a very plain tale the charges of unworthlnesa. Now and then a man has appeared not associable with the Sen ate anil its traditions; who suggested merely personal vanity and an excess of boodle, or a close connection with cor poration wealth seeking legislative favors. But such men at any time have been few. The great majority of senators have a; all times been the pick of their re spective states, qualified for their work, and performing it as conscientiously and patriotically as men in any other high station. They have worn no corporation collars, and served no special ends. They have been senators of the United States in the best and broadest' meaning attach ing to the office. The Senate's part in the tariff matter now closing is fair matter for discussion, and should be discussed in all of its bear ings But to start with the proposition, as some are doing, that never before has the Senate appeared so conspicuously as the tool of special privilege and the en emy of public interests is to weaken with mere abuse the very strong case of down ward revision Mr. Taft deserves the thanks of the men who have to give their time to legis lation in warm weather for neglecting numerous opportunities to create a gen eral disturbance. Evelyn Thaw's recent utterances invite admiration for the skill d.splayed by her husband's counsel in keeping things away from the Jury. In figuring out a source of dividends no corporation manager regards the con sumer as a myth. The End of Carlism. About a month ago the leading carlist deputy in the Spanish parliament an nounced that in the event of the death of Don Carlos, the pretender, then ill in Italy, his followers would probably de clare their allegiance to King Alfonso and proceed to organize a catholic party similar to the religlouB political organi zation in Germany. Don Carlos died yesterday in Varese, T.ombardy. and it now remains to be seen whether the proposition advanced by his representa tive will now be carried into effect. The carlist tradition is strong in Spain, although not sufficiently so to have warranted at any time during the past quarter of a century a serious ef fort at revolution in favor of the pre tender. Carlism has been more a senti ment of late years than a distinct po litical force. Many Spaniards have rec ognized the probability of Don Carlos' technical right to the 8panish throne, but have at the same time appreciated the fact that his accession would lead to a tremendous upheaval and probably to great discomfiture and loss. Don Carlos has been a picturesque fig ure in European life for many years, but few, outside of the Spaniards and the ultra-Bourbon French circles have taken him seriously. He was always a poseur, always a fortune hunter and not always honest. HJs extravagances led him into some remarkable experiences, one of the ?Met notable of which was the pawning of his collar of the Golden Fleece, the identical one that had been worn by the Emperor Charles V. He had pent this historic bauble to tlie pawnshop by the hand of a venerable general. and when I the fact became known he undertook | to shift the blame upon his proxy, who, j however, indignantly denied the charge in court and Don Carlos lost caste in consequence with many Spaniards. An other factor of weakness in his career was his second marriage with the Princess Marie-Bertlie de Rohan, who, though closely allied to the royal fam ily of France, was not herself of royal blood and could consequently not have been recognized by the Spanish people as their queen in case of a rarlist suc cession. It lias often been stated that one of the chief reasons why a republican movement could not succeed in Spain lias been that the carlists. holding as it were the balance of power, would in the last emergency show their influence with the monarchy, if this party now disin tegrates, that is to say if Don Jaime, the pretender's son. is disclaimed or abandoned by his father's supporters, it is believed that a large percentage wiil fall into the republican ranks notwith standing the traditional adherence of the carlists to th^ monarchist principle. But little republicanism has been e\ ident in Spain for some years, but now. at a time of profound peace in that country, there may be significant changes following upon the departure of Don Carlos from the scene. Mr. Piatt Recommends Politics. Thomas C. Piatt passed his seventy sixth milestone the other day. and had something to say to an interviewer about himself and the state of the Union. His physical strength has declined, but not his interest in affairs, and particularly affairs political. He follows the game both in Washington and at home closely. It will probably be true of Mr. Piatt that the waning of his interest in politics and politicians will mark the approach of his last hour. He recommends politics as a career. A young man, he says, finds opportunity In that field to serve himself, his friends and the public. Mr. Piatt himself succeeded?in a way. He undoubtedly served himself and his friends. He began when a young man, and mastered in the end a very difficult situation. To establish the hold he did on a great party organization, and then use that organization for repeated victo ries against a powerful opposition well led. was a notable performance for a man of only plain gifts. Being neither writer, nor speaker, nor student, and un impressive physically, he could only be come the master of the caucus and the director of those the caucus under his power had benefited. But that was much in a state like New York, where the cau cus-fixer has for years dominated the scene. Had Mr. Piatt confined himself to the sphere of his demonstrated usefulness and superiority?been content with such re wards as he could assimilate?his life would have been happier and his party the gainer. But the shoemaker would not stick to his last. Without any knowl edge of the law or any debating power, he insisted on congressional honors, and got them. He was first elected to the House and then to the Senate, but in neither body was he more than & cipher. His presence there merely armed his ene mies and his party's enemies with shafts of criticism, and they fired them relent lessly and continually. But politics is not all office, nor is office all of politics. Take the case of Mr. Tilden, who was a profound lawyer and an intellectual giant. He was all his life in politics, as manager and ad viser. His personal friends and his party profited largely by his advice and from his pen. but he asked nothing for himself until late in life. He wanted to b? Gov ernor of New York with the view of reaching the White House, and got as far as a nomination to the presidency. Mr. Piatt is right. Politics is ?n in viting field for a young man ambitious to be useful to Itfmself. his friends antf the public, and the measure of his suc cess will be the larger if he keeps the public the most conspicuously in mind. The President. The President took his time in declaring himself on the tariff situation, but that his calculations were most happy nobody can deny. He spoke when his words were bound to count at their highest value both with Congress and the country. The country indorses them. From all sections comes approval of what he has said, and an expression of the hope that it may lead to a prompt settlement of the matters in dispute. Ali along the President has urged a revision downward, and now by some luminous specifications he explains the meaning of that policy. What says Congress? And why not answer promptly? The Shall of Persia shows his unfitness for political life by his resentment of the formal communications with reference to his abdication. No trained statesman I would treat a notification committee in that manner. . I If it is true that Italian officials en riched themselves from funds for earth quake sufferers, the limit of low-down grafting may be considered on record. When the welfare of the government Is involved Bryan Is willing to be called in consultation, even it he cannot have charge of the case. . The Sutton mystery no less than the Thaw case proves how forcible a mother's influence can be in the face of all sorts 1 of difficulties. In case Mr. Rockefeller's patent butter does not please the fastidious consumer it may be possible to put a wick in it and burn it. The present process of illumination should prevent any further references to Africa as the dark continent. Cars to tht Park. The statements by representatives of the local street railway companies that it would not pay the corporations to extend their lines to the edge of Rock Creek Park for the sake of the additional traffic attracted should not stand as serious arguments against the proposed improve ment. One of the officials has urged that there would be only two months of active use of these extensions in the course of a year. In point of fact the reverse is probably true. In all likelihood the im proved facilities would attract passengers during ten months of the year. Rock Creek Park is beautiful at all times. Only when the ground is covered with snow is it unsuitable for visitation. There is a splendor of the bare trees in winter that is attractive.' The early spring softness of new foliage and the autumn colors are i as charming in their way as the dense leaf masses of midsummer. Indeed, the true lover of nature finds in Rock Creek Park at all seasons some particular charm that is well worth the effort necessary to reach the scene. The fact that there is at present com paratively little travel through the park by those not equipped with private ve hicles is no warrant for believing that with the car lines extended to the borders there wou'd not be a sufficient us? to compensate, within a very few seasons, for the expense of the construction. But af ar all, the street railway corporations are more or less subject to the public needs, which are always to be considered primarily. These corporations enjoy valu able franchises and are under obligations to meet the developing demands of the community. It is for Congress to deter mine whether the public requirement in the matter of additional transportation facilities to Rock Creek Park is sufficient to justify the proposed extensions. The Commissioners will be warranted in lay ing ttfelr recommendation before the houses at the earliest opportunity in urgent terms. The "anonymous American millionaire'' who has recently written himself down as one who likes Ixjndon because in that city nobody stares at him or writes para graphs concerning him may be merely bringing new testimony to prove the tra ditional lack of a British sense of humor. Teople who provide statistics to show how little it requires to support a house hold will doubtless suspend their activ ities until interest in the figures quoted by Mrs. Howard Gould entirely subsides. If Abdul Hamid is a success as a farmer the Turkish government might or ganize a department of agriculture and put him at the head of it. The King of Sweden has painted his own portrait, thus removing the work from danger of disapproval by the ma jority of art critics in his country. Doubt increases as to whether the name "Payne"' or "Aldrich" will ever wholly obscure that of "Dingley." SHOOTING STARS BY PHILANDER JOHNSON. Not Interested. "Have you heard the latest news?" in quired Mrs. Bizzibod. "Yes." answered Miss Cayenne. "It's very shocking, isn't it?" "You know the people " "No. I haven't the slightest idea as to the Identity of the people. Scandals are like humorous anecdotes about celebrities; the same old stories with different names introduced." "De man who speaks nuffin bu* de sim ple truth," said Uncle Eben, "will find so much to do in de way of investigatin' an' meditatin* dat he ain" g'ineter have much time foh taikin'." The Notoriety Seeker. He stands forth in the public eye; And yet some close observers think, As he goes proudly stepping by, The public gives a knowing wink. A Town With a Future. "Paris is a wonderful center of 6ocial gayety and popular excitement." "Yes." answered Mr. Cumrox, thought fully. "I should not be surprised if Paris might not one day claim recognition as the Pittsburg of France." Sympathetic Admiration. "So you enjoyed the circus?" "Yes." answered Mr. Crosslots, "I was particularly interested in the Juggler. 1 il bet that man could get any number of bundles from a street car to the train without dropping one of them. ' Overwork. Oh. he was the busiest person aiive. He had an astounding proclivity For helping excitement about him to thrive, By great and incessant activity. Whene'er a procession set forth on the street. His personal aid he would lend to it. He hastened with swift and unwearying feet. He had to go out and attend to it. The clang of a fire bell, however remote, Awakened his zeal instantaneous. When juvenile pugilists angrily smote, He gave advice extemporaneous. Each public disturbance he took to his care; There was nobody else he could send to it. Though hundreds of persons were eure to be there, . He had to go out and attend to it. The post that he held was a lucrative one With a firm that was kindly but sensible. The records that told of the work he had done Was, saying the least, reprehensible. In spite of his recognized knowledge and skill. They decided there must be an end to it. He was finely equipped the position to fill. But he didn't have time to attend to it. Make Half a Million! From the New York Mail. "National Guard" is a true phrase now. Until very recently it was a fiction. We shall have a true national guard when we have the men. But at the pres ent moment the organized militia, on the new basis, does not number more than 110,000 men all told, and perhaps 25,000 of these would not be found fit for active service. There are only six states in the Union that have an organized militia of more *han 4,000 men, and those six states are all in the northeastern part of the country. All the southern states taken together have but a few more organized militia than the state of New York alone. Militarism? Not in the least. An organ ized citiuen soldiery is the opposite of militarism?it is an insurance against it. Without a national citizen-guard of at least 300,000 men we must have a larger regular army. With it the regular army need never be increased, if the popula tion of the country rose to 150,000,000. It is plain common sense. Is Switzerland, where every man is a trained and ready soldier, and where there is no regular army at all, a militaristic country? And is Switzerland the only country In the world that is capable of defensive com mon sense? Walking. From the New York BreDlng Post. He who uses his legs is thereby ena bled to use his eyes. Nature in all moods ir the companion of him who walks. A network of sun and shadow, or a maze of muddy pools, lies before his feet. His cheek feels the impact of kindly breezes or harsher rain. The bend in the road lures him onward and fills him with peaceful conjecture. A pleasant comrade at his side seems not amiss to most, though Hazlitt and Ste venson cast their voices against it, de claring that the full flavor of a walking tour is best gained by solitude. Steven son better analyzes moods, but Hazlitt Is the more lyric. He was among the first of Anglo-Saxon blood to sing the open road. Business in Philanthropy. From the Baltimore American. This is an age of multiplied endowed philanthropies, and it is obvious that the efficacy of these philanthropic trusts is very largely dependent upon the care and systematized economy with which the revenues are handled. The need of business methods in the management of endowments is very apparent. Most of these endowed benevolences are for tha good of the general public, and th? public at large is. therefore, properly concerned in the economic handling of such bequests. An Early Approximation. From ihe Topekt Capital. It is our observation that the best de scriptions of heaven are those put out by the railroads calling attention to the tcenery along their respective routes. And Seaweed.
