Putting Up the Poor Mouth.
The cry goes up that no coin is in sight
for either party. Tha seedless orange
and the thornlese rose are to be followed
by the moneyless political campaign.
' This cry has gone up in other years.
We have repeatedly heard it, only to see
a spirited contest waged, with printing
presses buoy, clerks by the acore employed.
and every stump occupied. As
We all know, printing presses do not
work of their own accord, clerks must
live, and spellbinders do not exercise
their vocal chords for their health. So
that money in those years must have
been collected.
This year the cry is rendered a little
persuasive by the fact that a publicity
law respecting campaign contributions is
% now on the books. Who subscribed? and
how much? After the election the campaign
chairmen are to take tha public
into their confidence on this subject.
It is argued that individuals will not
contribute generously for fear of having
selfish ends ascribed to them, while
trusts and corporations will refuse outright.
Some, it is suggested, will be glad
of an excuse. They have been milked
so long by both parties they welcome a
chance to escape.
And yet it takes money to make this
mare go. Legitimate campaigning is expensive.
The field to be covered is
enormous, and certain campaign methods
are indespensable. Literature must ba
circulated, though much of it is dry.
Stumping is necessary, though many
stumi<ers are but poorly eauipped for
their work. The creature of mere bounce
and invective makes no votes, and his
employers are lucky If he does not repel
some. And cash is required to settle
these bills.
We should soon know what the present
cry amounts to. If the two parties set
a lively pace, and keep it up, the guess
will be an easy one that they are not
poor. No change has come over our
politics in the past few weeks warranting
the belief that something heretofore expensive
may now be secured for nothing.
Canvassers, clerks, spellbinders, and all
such folk, come as high today as ever,
and are sure of employment.
Then, after the tale is told at the polls,
will come the confessions of the managers
as to where the sinews of war were
obtained. The lists will be read with
interest, and, without severe reflection on
anybody, with some smirking incredulity.
The publicity law is an experiment, and
there are many parsons who wonder if
it will work, or was intended to workTfee
Haakin Letters.
The Star begins today the publication
of a aeries of letters by Frederic
J. Haskin, descriptive of the political
conditions in England and Germany, designed
to set forth clearly before Its
readers the elements which cause the
situation in each of those countries to
be of the most acute interest to American
observers. It is impossible to un
derstand the intense commercial rivalry
between England and Germany
without comprehending the state of
affairs in each country. Of the situation
in England somewhat is known
here, owing to the comparative ease with
which English politics is understood.
But new conditions have arisen there,
culminating in the death of King Edward
and the accession of George V,
which call for a close analysis. Mr.
llaskin's letters will bring up to date
the issues which it is expected will
soon lead to another general election
and back of which are grave possibilities
of change in the English organization.
Germany is a more complex
problem for American political
students to solve, and the letters bearing
upon this subject will undoubtedly
give the readers of The Star an
exceptional opportunity to become acquainted
with the relations of parties
and the lines of cleavage and the
trend of public sentiment in that country.
No more interesting field is open
ts the investigator today in the entlse
range of international affairs, and
The Star fe^Js that in oflerlng these
letters to its readers it is giving them
the best available information on a
subject of world-wide importance.
One of the peculiar things about human
asture Is that It should never get over
being surprised that the weather is hot
la summer.
It will hardly be possible to get the
Bestaad drama before the American pubHe
while It stm retains the attraction of
a real spring chicken.
Ex-Senator Clark of Montana is still
enough of a national figure to be the object
of reckleae report aa to political intentions.
United States and Central America.
Utter misconception of the American
policy and 'rpoee in the relations between
the Lalted States and the countries
of Central America appears to prevail
throughout the Ave republics of that
radon. The news dispatches brine word
of a series of demonstrations against this
country in Nicaragua. Costa Rica. Honduras
and Salvador. Guatemala alone remaining
aloof from these manifestations
through the vigorous determination of
Preeidet* Cabrera. A dispatch sent by
students of Salvador to La Prensa of
Buenos Aires, obviously designed to affect
she Pan-American conference now In
session there, is an excellent example of
the total misunderstanding of American
sentiments toward Central America. *t
reads:
"The Salvadorean students throw out
to the entire world, by means of the
press, their energetic protest against ths
unjustifiable and odious attempt of the
Yankees against Central American sovereignty.
The people demand arms to
defend Central American autonomy."
There has never been the slightest desire
on the part of this country to subvert
the sovereignty of any of the Central
American states. QuRe on ths contrary.
the United States is chiefly desirous
of the establishment in each of th<
live republics of a substantia! sovereignty
Ap
guaranteeing to thotr cttlsens security of
llfs and propsrty, nod at th? Mm* tlmo
assuring foreign Interests the protection
M a stable government based apen the
real suffrages of the people.
The cadi of the Salvadortan students
for arms "to defend Central American
autonomy" Is of a piece with the whole
Central American theory of national existence*
These countries are governed
not by popular will, but by "military
measures. Their elections are battles,
their suffrage is a farce. Autonomy to
them means the ability of an Insurgent
chief to oust the existing government, or
the ability of the exiating government to
defend itself successfully against an ambitious
rival who has taken the field.
If the United States interferes in Central
America it ail! only be because Its
Interests are in Jeopardy. It has absolutely
no territorial aspirations, Its needs
in that respect having been fully met by
the acquisition of a strip across the
Isthmus of Panama within which to build
and safeguard the interoceanic canai.
This government stands ready today to
interfere in Nicaragua if the rights of its
citlaens are Imperiled there by reason Of
the inability of the Nlcaraguans to maintain
a responsible government.
It is evident that the outbreak of antiAmerican
sentiment throughout Central
America is the work of those who have
had reason to apprehend the Intervention
1 of the United States to prevent their
tyrannical misuse of office and power.
! The fugitive Zelaya is accredited as the
chief agent of this propaganda against
the "Yankees." This of Itself Is a sufficient
answer to the Charge that the
United States government entertains sinister
designs against the people of Central
America. It may be Impossible to
persuade them that it Is in truth In a
friendly attitude, but it should not be
impossible to convince the world beyond
their small sphere that so far from planning
the destruction of their sovereignty
the United States hopes for their attainment
of the full privileges of real selfgovernment.
Defending the Payne Law.
The words attributed to Representative
Longworth have the ring of sand and
common sense. He accepts the democratic
challenge on the tariff question, and
is prepared to dsfend the Payne law. He
is confident that the voters will listen to
explanations of the measure from those
who helped to draw and pass it, and that
when they understand it they will forego
the objections they may have formed In
ignorance and prejudice. At any rate,
he will stand to his guns in the coming
campaign, and take the consequences.
This is at once good sense and good
politics. The republicans cannot possibly
escape the Payne law. They are responsible
for it In t the fullest sense of the
word. It was drawn neither in haste
nor in a corner. Nor was it railroaded
through either house of Congress. There
was time and to spare about even* feature
of both the preparation of the bill
and the debate on It. Manufacturers,
consumers, theorists, and practical politicians.
all had their say. a few republican
votes were recorded against the bill
on the final roll calls, but republican
votes passed it.
When the measure reached the White
House, the republican President signed it.
Had he vetoed It he would have Injured
both his part? and the business world,
the former by rebuking Congress, and the
latter by protracting, for at least a year,
and maybe longer, the period of uncertainty
and anxiety. Had he permitted
the bill to become a law without his signature
he would have injured himself.
The Payne law, then. Is wholly of republican
origin and enactment. It is not
all that the party offers as the result of
its success in November, 1906, but stands
as one of several pieces of Important legislation
promised the country in the TaftBryan
campaign. Nor is .the claim advanced
that the law is perfect. The
President has been as frank as the frankest
of the Insurgents in criticising certain
schedules.
But. for better or for worse, there Is the
law, and Ita authors could not if they
would deny their act. To quibble or run
Sway would be to invite disaster. To
stand up and fight is to invite respect, at
least for courage. Mr.' Longworth's
course and advice, therefore, arc creditable
to him. He helped prepare the law,
advocated it in debate, and Is now willing
to take the judgment of the country
on the measure. He arlll figure in
the campaign, either as a candidate for
re-election to the - House, or for the governorship
of Ohio, and what he says will
command attention.
i i i t .
Mr. H. C. Lodge's reference to Theodore
Roosevelt as "a great vote-getter" is a
recognition Of merit from a qualified and
experienced as well as scholarly observer
of America's somewhat complicated elective
system. It is genuine praise; genuine

York, but, like Rip Van Winkle with the
cup that fascinated,, he does not count

The ability of the author of a summer
resort prospectus to make alluring promises
should get him a place with any
committee engaged in preparing a political
platform. ^

or that he is still sending out rumors
to influence trading.
Of course. President Taft will appreciate

place on the Supreme bench.

Barring the Fight Films.
Under the laws of the District ef Columbia
prise fighting is forbidden in this jurisdiction.
It should be as impossible to
present photographic representations o{ a
prise fight as to conduct such an exhibition
here. The reflection of an illegal act
may be just as demoralising as the act it

that Washington be kept free from
' the dangerous contamination of - these
realistic reproductions of the affair at
Reno, which cannot be viewed by the decent
without exciting disgust and supports
the orders Issued today by the
Commissioners In approval of MaJ. Sylvester's
recommendation that the light
films be prohibited.
No matter how much moaey has been
spent for the production of these films,
they have no place In the motion picture
theaters of this city. Those wh> went to
great expense to make them knew perfectly
well in advance that public opinion
throughout the United States was adverse
, to prise fighting and to the mteure of the
motion picture business for such a demor1
all zing 'erics of exhibitions.
In practically all of the American cities
protests against these pictures ere being
filed with the authorities. In Baltimore
the dty marshal and the mayor are cooperating
to prevent the exhibition of the
pictures. In all plaess this can te done
! if the municipal officials are so inct!ne<j
' and have sufficient courage. That fhey

The motion picture companies should 4

clean amusement which has In large <

jealous of their success and of the pres- ?
tige they have won with the people. They 4
should endeavor to keep their houses free 4
from the taint of demoralisation and <
should maintain undiminished their appeal '
to the people as purv eyors of wholcsumc, <

Tenures of Chief Justices. 4
From tbe Sew York Tribune. ?j
Chief Justice Fuller, who died yester- *\
day at his summer home in Maine, had jj
continued In our time the tradition of j
long service in that post created by Chief J
Justices Marshall and Taney. Until Mar- J
shall came into the court brief tenure j
had been the rule for its presiding Jus- J
tices. John Jay served only six years. J
He was succeeded by John Kutledge, >j
the only Chief Justice to sit by a recess <
appointment. He presided over one term s
before the Senate had a chance to act on <
his nomination, and, his mind having he- 3
come affected by the time Congress as- j

Ellsworth held the office only three 1
years, resigning it after he had been sent J
to France on a diplomatic mission. Mar* i
ghall's great success in expanding the ,
powers and influence of the court was *1
due largely to his unbroken tenure of J
thirty-four years. Taney, who followed, J
held the office twenty-eight years. Chief 2
Justice Fuller approached their recosds 2
with a service of twenty-two years. Ills i
two immediate predecessors had shorter <
terms?Morrison R. Waite one of four- 2
teen years and Salmon P. Chase one of A
only nine years. A
Thinking Machinery May Bust. \
From the Boston Herald. '
"We read books nowadays," said Rev. Hugh
Black to the Dartmouth collegians,
"to avoid thinking. We seldom hear a
voice which is not an echo of what some
one else has said." Are we getting to
be a race of plagiarists? Is it true that
in these days of insurgency, of the exaltation
of independent action, we are
neglecting the fundamental right and
privilege of thinking for ourselves.
There's a deal of truth in the warning.
The program that most men cut out for
themselves, and which they assume the
world lays out for them, doesn't give
them time to stop and think. They try !
to assimilate what others have thought ;
and pass off the product as their own. But I
few men, even those who lead, ever actually
stop work, isolate themselves and think.

Hold on to Your Latin.
From the Chicago Tribune.
The rind is bitter, but the core Is sweet.
The memorizing of Latin grammar and
the thumbing of a Latin dictionary are
the-rind. The riches of a great literature
are the core. The irksome tasks of the
schoolboy and the oollegtan are the small
price he pays for something that can be
the recreation of his mature years, the
constant companion and solace of old
age. But the price does not seem small <
while it is being paid. The student who ~
knows only English, an almost gram
marless tongue which has freed itself I
from the trammels of conjugations, de- 1
clensions and genders, is appalled by the
Intricacies and complexities of a highly
inflected language. The enthusiasm with
which he may nave begun its study is
likely to be converted Into disgust. But ?
there could be no greater mistake than
for one who has got nearly through the ~
drudgery to lose the reward by letting
all that he has laboriously learned slip
away from him when he becomes his
own master.
