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 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 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

mere abuse the very strong case of down

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
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
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
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
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 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?

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

"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
