The Meaning of Parker.
Asked if ho was hehird Judge Parker,
?"h trie- K. Miirphv answered promptly
ar d laconically. "I am."
What dors this.slgnify ? The answer to
tN question lies in the position occupied
by ,M< Murphy, in the character of the
organization lie represents and in the
character <'f that organization's master.
Mr. Murphy is the leader of Tammany
Mall, and. in his way and element, a
clever politician. As rratters stand to
day he is in control of the New York
d'iepat on to Baltimore, which, in the
matte: .if the candidate, is nninstructed.
A .i result, l.e is receiving much atten
tion in Baltimore. Managers nf the dif
ferent presidential boon s are calling on
him and in one way or another confess
ing to his importance in the equation. A
r"d fr^m Mr Murphy possesses value.
? ! am lappy to meet you, Mr. Murphy.
Yo i a?e 'ookinsr well." "The same to
,\ "ii, colonel. Every democrat should
look well the*,- bright times."
Tammany Hall, in its rank and tile, is
t. e rankest tnins; of the kind ever. It
j.s the toughery of New York banded to
-? thcr for political purposes. Its record
.s >tained with venality and outraee
axainst honest and detent government.
Democrats of national distinction and in
fluence have drawn upon the strongest
icims in denouncing the organization.
Th>- distance is great, but Tammany
smells to heaven.
Wall street is Tammany's master. The
.-treet an 1 the tis* r know each other
well; and the latter has often done the
former's bidding. When the street asked
for the senator to succeed Mr. Depew,
and put forward a man it knew and
iould trust, Tammany accepted him and i
tiled to elect him. The street lias no
wishes that Tammaiv will not grant.
How natural it is. then, for Mr. Murphy
jo stand foi Judge Parker! Wail street
knows the judge, and trusts him. So do
ttte trusts trust him. He is learned in
; iie law. well informed as to iheir inter
ests, and a near neighbor. He practices
1 ;s profession in the town where they
e taking account daily of their enor
mous profits.
Judge Parker, then, in the chair at Bal
t more will spell Tammany, and Tam
many spells Wall street. Need we won
der that Mr. Bryan is angry and militant
at the suggestion? Has he not been in
veighing against Wall street for sixteen
j ears? Against his earnest protest, the
democracy, tied up openly .with Wall
street in 1SMM. and went to a crashing de
feat. The street imposed Judge Parker
on the party as the candidate that year,
and Mr. Roosevelt made a runaway race.
Mr. Bryan could not afford to say, "I
care not who sounds the keynote so I am
permitted to boss the making of the plat
form." If Wall street sounds the key
note at P.altimore, all the democratic
? outing and the tumult in the campaign
a-ainst predatory wealth and the money
trust will ring with hypocrisy and go for
in^ v ith the people.
The Pennsylvania Strike Vote.
The employes of the Pennsylvania rail
road have voted In overwhelming ma
jority to strike unless all their demands
* granted by the corporation. Accord
to the present statement of the case
hey will cease work Wednesday if the
company continues to refuse a satisfac
t? r.. adjustment. The grievances which
still remain unsettled are six in number,
and are regarded as of chief importance
to the operatives. The company's public
announcement, recently made, declared
thai everything possible had been con
? ded to the men, but this is hardly to
? taken to mean that absolutely noth
ng more will be granted for the sake of
averting a ?strike. Doubtless if the I'nited
S ates intervenes, tinder the Krdman act,
il.c adjustment will be made on the basis
? f ,he situation as it no a- exists, with the
s x grievances that remain at issue reck
oned as the whole < ase and not neces
-anly as the result of a prior adjudica
ti"n. A strike is hardly to be conceived
as prubaoic ;i? this ia>e. The elements
f settlement are easilj available, and
it would l?e the worst of folly on both
sides to carry the dispute to the point
?f a conflict certain to ? ause tremendous

The Republican Platform.
The republican aj?p?'al ts strong on the
three most important issues of the day
Yot, rs are greatly Interested in nil dis
? -sions of the tariff, the trusts and the
:s-*u< Mr. R?M>sevelt has raised about the
In the matter of the trusts the repub

sis If it is true that trusts have come
Into existence and thrived under repub
lican control of the country, it is also
true that unexampled prosperity is the
underlying cause. Ha1 there been no
great volume of production there would
have been no new means of distribution.
And the law for regulating trust? Is of
republican origin, and its only effective
execution has been under republican ad
ministrations. Mr. Cleveland's second ad
ministration merely dawdled with the
In the matter of the tariff, protection
has always been a republican shibboleth.
The leaders of the party have sometimes
differed al>out rates. but never about the
principle. AH have declared for protec
tion. All declare for it today. Mr. La
Follette does not think the Payne law re
deems th^ tariff promise of 11WW, l>ut he
would n>t reolare the law with one con
demning the principle of protection. No
tariff for revenue only for him. The
American wage scales must be profited,
and in order that that may be done the
American manufacturers also must be
protected. For if the mills and mines
are idle, the workers necessarily are idle,
too. No dividends for capital, no wages
for labor. No proposition could be

to accommodate it.

law but the law of a tireless tongue, { nd
would not be able to recognize a prece
dent for orderly action if they met it in
the road with a tag on.
The Cuban Situation.
In the turmoil over domestic politics the
American people have lost interest of late
in the Cuban situation, and it is well to
call attention to the fact, at this time be
tween the conventions, that the island in
surrection has been suppressed and that
peace lias been virtually restored. Un
less present signs are fallacious the lit
tle republic will soon be given complete
tranquillity, and it will be possible to
withdraw the American forces now sta
tioned there on land and in the adjacent
waters. This outcome is highly gratify
ing to the people of the I'nited States.
There has been no desire at any time to
intervene actively for the sake of any po
litical advantage or a possible move to
ultimate annexation. Indeed, there is no
wish here for the acquisition of Caba.
It is generally recognized that for all
practical purposes the present relations
between the United States and Cuba suf
fice for the maintenance of peace. The
original intervention was to put an end
to an intolerable condition of strife and a
shocking exercise of Spanish tyranny
over a subject people. The I'nited States
would never have been drawn into the af
fair had it not been for the positive in
jury done to American interests by the
failure of Spain to restore order on the
island, however strong may have been
the sentimental impulse to assist the Cu
bans to obtain autonomy. Now that the
Cuban republic is established under these
circumstances the United States is under
obligations, and has assumed and on one
occasion exercised the right, to restore
order, by force, if necessary. The fact
that one intervention has been required
does not argue that the Cubans are in
capable of maintaining a stable govern
ment. Indeed, considering all the condi
tions in which the republic was organized
the record thus far written is creditable.
Unkindest Cut of All.
There was one poignant incident of the
great Chicago drama that will not easily
be dismissed from recollection. In impress
ing the necessity of order. Chairman Klihu
Root bluntly stated that "disturbers"
would be ejected from the hall, by force
if necessary, delegate or no delegate. The
inference was obvious. If a delegate
could not hope for patient forbearance,
what chance was there for a private citi
zen. soul-burdened with stampede ma
terial? The former friendship of Mr. Root
and Mr. Roosevelt made a background
which brought the tragic episode into
vivid relief. The only fitting conclusion
would have been for the wounded cham
pion to cover his face with his sombrero,
as he exclaimed in classic paraphrase,
"And thou Rootus!"
When it came to a question of candi
dacy T^a Follette planted his elbows on
the table and stood pat in a way that
must have compelled the admiration .of
Uncle Joe Cannon.
Attention has been called to patent
medicine testimonials using the name of
Champ Clark. It is to be observed, how
ever, that Mr. Clark has not advocated
any cure-all for economic deficiencies.
The historic leader who with 40,000
men marched up a hill and then marched
down again has set the pace for many a
modern politician.
That new nationalist party with which
Col. Roosevelt's name was associated !s
not in shape for immediate activity.

The Boy Scout Tags.
Watch for the boys with the tags to
morrow. They will be busy from early
morning until as late at night as it is
pw*per for them to be out hust'.ing, sell
ing their Boy Scout emblems at a nickel
apiece, or as much more as they c-sn get
for them, and helping thereby to swell
the f'.ind for the first annual encamp
ment at River View. Every citizen can
well afford to get at least one of these
tags, and he may be sure 4iiat the money
will be well spent in a good cause. The
boy scout movement is for the benefit of
Washington and not merely for the pleas
ure of the youngsters. It is designed to
make good citizens of the boys of today,
to t<-ach them practical patriotism, to
make them self-helpful, to broaden their
vision and to train them in discipline and
Tag day has became a common f0rm of
raising funds for worthy objects making
for the public welfare. It is a direct
method of appealing to the individual
citizen. Calls for contribujions are never
so effective as when they are addressed
in person, and the tagging process is
about as practical as can be devised. If
the citizen approached is at all curious
regarding the object for which his con
tribution is sought he can readily obtain
information on th? subject. It stimulates
curiosity and ultimately arouses interest
thus to enlist a person as a financial
worker even to the extent of five cents.
The more the Boy Scout movement is
studied by the people the more it is
likely to be approved and supported, and
probably as a result of tomorrow's tag
ging several thousand Washlngtonians
will have become convinced that this is a
v ork deserving of hearty co-operation
and support, an object quite as much to
be desired as the raising of sufficient
funds to insure the success of this year's
"Orchestra Hall" will hereafter be re
membered as the location of one of the
world's most remarkable demonstrations
in the discord line.

The Florentine Statesman.
From the New York Sun.
On the great questions of constructive
statesmanship now interesting the coun
try, namely, the tariff, the trusts, the
national currency, the Taft platform is as
explicit and satisfactory as party plat
forms can be in the nature of things.
There may be difference of opinion as to
its recommendations, but there can be
no doubt that the republican resolution
makers did not shrink or blink. What of
the Florentine party, the personal party
of Theodore Roosevelt? What are his
ideas on the subjects of foremost con
cern? What is to be the Florentine plat
form for ll?l-? Four years ago the Flor
entine leader and orchestral hope of the
extreme left of the progressives unbosom
ed himself on these important subjects.
He was then the President of the 1'nited
States; and then the President of the
1'nited States calmly remarked, in a mo
ment of perfect candor: "I have not the
qualities of mind to take up the trust
question, the currency question and the
trar^portation questions. These things
do not interest me."
Base Ball With a Moral.
From the Cleveland leader.
There is a lesson in the present posi
tion of the Washington base ball club
which might well be taught in Sunday
schools. It is a preachment of real force
and broad appeal. Here is a club whi<-h
has struggled* year after year, decade
after decade, against defeat, ridicule and
helplessness. Its low estate has been a
national joke. Its position at or close
to tlie foot of the list of clubs in the
championship race has been taken for
granted. Kicked and scoffed at all around
the circuit, the Washington team has
looked for bad fortune and has found it
In ample measure. Hardened to misfor
tune, it has taken Its beatings meekly.
Nothing better was ever really expected.
And now this same club, under a new
manager, inspired with new confidence,
spurred on by new ambitions, has made
a wonderful record of unbroken victories
for the greater part of a month. It has
gone from city to city, winning all the
time. It has made success its bosom com
panion. Failure and ignominy belong to
the past.
What Third Farty Represents.
From ttf Philadelphia Ledger.
In accepting tlie nomination for Presi
dent from the bolting delegates from the
republican convention and from that non
descript collection of buckram "'dele
gatcs-' who contested seats chiefly on
flimsy pretexts, the colonel advised his
nominators to "go to their homes, to find
out the sentiment of the people atTiome"
and then to assemble later In the sum
mer and repeat the nomination if they
should tind any sort of demand or spon
taneous call. A *ood many of the dele
gates to this rump convention will have
some difficulty in framing the issue for
their own people at home and in formulat
ing for themselves .nist what the Issue is
that Roosevelt represents or what is the
particular need of the third party.
Superfluous Weapons.
From the Cleveland News.
The law forbidding the carrying of re
volvers is enforced with considerable effi
ciency. The municipal court has made an
example of more than one gun toter. Re
cently a new ordinance intended to re
s-trlct the habit of going armed was put
in effect. It forbids the sale of revolvers
except to persons officially vouched for
as responsible. And still the murderous
weapon figures with deadly frequency in
Cleveland criminal records.
The People Sane.
From the Chicago Kccord-Herald.
The trouble with some people is that
they think when 15.000 people in a con
vention hall go crazy that the whole na
tion has become demented.
