Anti-Bryan Blunders. Whatever Mr. Bryan's purpose was wh^n hp reached Baltimore?whether to maneuver for the nomination for himself, or simply to exert his influence toward the framing of a progressive platform an<i tiie placing of a progressive man on it-it is clear now that his opponents blundered in several thing.* at the very outset. Judge Parker's selection for temporary chairman by the democratic committee was a blunder. Why have made it? Judge Parker was not an inspiring memory iu democratic circles. His nomination eight years ago was a mistake. The campaign w hich followed w as a humiliation. What els. was possible, with the party hurling thunderbolts at Wall street and Wall street financing the movement? Xo won der Mr. Roosevelt made a runaway race. His opponents had smoothed the track tor him. Mr. Murphy's selection for chairman of the New York delegation was a mistake. Why have flaunted the most corrupt of political organizations in the face of the convention and the country? Mr. Stanch tield's description of the delegation cuts two ways. There are some excellent men on it?men of high attainments and char acter, and position, llut why was not one of them placed in the leadership? Why did such men consent to fall in behind such a man as Mr. Murphy? Mr. Belmont's presence as a member of the delegation was a mistake. The bete noir was Wall street. The cdUntry was still ringing with the effort of the trusts through George W. Perkins to nominate Mr. Roosevelt at Chicago. And yet here at Baltimore, occupying a seat among the mighty, was one of the recognized kings of Wall street, representing both the de sires and the purposes of the street with respect to the coming campaign. The same may be said of the presence of Mr. Ryan at a delegate from Virginia, in a larger measure even than Mr. Bel mont, he represents Wall street and all that has made that thoroughfare odious in politics. Should not Mr. Ryan have foreseen the use Mr. Bryan would make of his phiz in the convention? It is not a sufficient answer to point out that Mr. Bryan in past campaigns when he was the candidate worked with these men and accepted all that they did for him That is a good point, well taken, and tells against Mr. Bryan as a politi cian. But the ruling consideration this time should have been depriving Mr. Bryan of all opportunity so far as possi ble to make trouble. Instead, several op portunities have been afforded him; and he has seized them ail with an avidity and improved them with a skill thor oughly characteristic. During the past week Mr. Bryan's ene mies have played into his hands in a way not only to increase his power in the party, but to hearten the republicans for the struggle that is to follow. The Convention Hall Trash. Some idea of the stress of things in Baltimore can be gathered from the fol lowing score of the clean-up committee that tackled the convention hall Sunday morning, following the adjournment. The place had been in such continuous use that there had been little chance to scrub it and scour it until the lapse of a whole day occurred between sessions. Here is the total of the haulage from the armory as a result of the raking and scraping of Sunday: Two wagon loids of dirt and rubbish, seven loads of paper, fan;?. etc.; three loads of bottles. Of course, all that trash ? ai:ij"t be attributed t>> the dele gates. Livery delegate w ho may be ques tioned un his return about that l>ottle item has a right to insist that the three w"5ig.?n loads of containers of wet goods were attiibutablc to spectators and con vention employi -. Tin reckoning is in teresting as an evidence of the price that the peopU rf this lo ititrv have t>> pay for their exercise of the privilege of self governm* tit Sonic day it may be necessary to em powe: sc'iiebody to dissolve a conven tion. after ii has refused to agree, in the Tin- mantvi that a Judge dis eharg a hung jurj Kor a man who talks so abundantly, Co Rooseve't ma'iages to excite a re nnark <? b- amount of public curiosity as to w at >i- i.- ? on;; to sav next. ?

He de tei'ied before the keen wit at oyster Bay' did tin fratids^on a proud and free peo ple contemplated b> the Taft men. It would appcat, however, from Mr. MeHarg's statement that Mr. Dixon in d;:'ig. ' hinis-If too i eely in tiis fierceness. A i;r?at tnan\ persons at Chicago would not stand for it. Ttiey "wanted Teddy," but thought they coujd get him without so murli din and accusation. Bui. the Dixon program was continued, and chaos, not sii?'c.'>!i. followed. dr. Dixon - a North t'arolinian with a Montana training. Mr Perkins is a Buckeye with a New York training. The one man if what is called a born politic ei.tr. Tjje other is what is called a born b 'n. s's' man. Mr. Dixon Is oratorical? even oracular. Mr. Perkins la close mouthed and calculating. Tarheella be lieves in language. Buckeyanla believes In silence. Silence la a great factor in political management. Mr. Gorman In the cam paign of 1884 was a silent man. Mr. Quay in the campaign of 1888 opened his mouth only to take tifs meals. Mr. Hanna in the campaign of 180K said a few things in whisper behind his hand. On the score of silence, therefore, Mr. Perkins in charge would be strong. .And then he would be strong otherwise. His promises?especially his promise? to pay?would need no indorser. He would be both manager and check book. Tne middle man would be cut nut. Goods would go straight from the factory to the consumer. Mr. Perkins' say-so would be sufficient. This point is important. Money will be necessary to carry on the Roosevelt business, and Mr. Perkins will continue the leading "angel." So why should he not henceforth lay out the course, and direct the flying? And maybe, having no emotionalism himself. Mr. Perkins might control the abundant supply of the candidate. Shall we say the too abundant supply? Mr. Roosevelt certainly is well stocked, and 'enjoys using the material. If the manager is Perkins, the spell binders and. other whoopers-up will re joice. He will look good to them, and they will perform to his fiddling with all their might. Never mind about the trusts. Mr. Perkins can hide them, or deny their existence. The Cuban and Mexican Troubles. If tlie Mexican revolt would subside as definitely as the Cuban uprising there would be a much better feeling in this country regarding conditions on the im mediate threshold of the United States^. The Cuban affair seems to have been effectually suppressed, the uprising being finally quelled with the death of Gen. Estenoz the other day, so that now the pacification of the disturbed provinces is merely a matter of administrative detail, into the i?artlculars of which it will be just as well for the American people not to inquire too closely, for the sake of their peace of mind. Such a govern ment as that established in Cuba cannot afford to be easy-handed in dealing with those who have undertaken to overthrow it. and the aftermath of the Cuban re volt is likely to he of a rather radical character in terms of punishment and reprisals, which, however, should have a good effect in the maintenance of or der In the future. From Mexico every few days comes an announcement to the effect that a "de cisive battle" Is about to be fought and that the government is prepared to crush the rebellion finally. Yet the subsequent dispatches do not bear out these proc lamations. The rebel forces are pur suing guerrilla tactics, avoiding pitched battles as far as possible and striking the government unexpected blows by sud den descents upon small garrisoned towns and, as in the latest case, dynamiting troop trains. The report from Chihuahua that tells of the explosion of mines under twenty coaches full of government sol diers comes from insurgent sources and thus far lacks confirmation, but it is nevertheless believable Inasmuch as such acts have occurred before. One of the most encouraging happen ings of recent months from the govern ment point of view in Mexico is the deposition of Orosco as military chief of the revolution toy a body which styles it self the "Mexican revolutionary com mittee," but which may have some dif ficulty in forcing its decree of trial and punishment issued against Orozco. This dissension in the insurgent ranks Is cer tain to weaken the anti-government movement, even though it does not give assurance that President Madero will be able speedily to restore peace to all parts of the republic. The Canadian Cyclone. Later reports of the disaster at Regina reduce the fatalities and the Iocs of prop erty by a material percentage, but the ac counts of the tragedy are still such as to cause a shock. The death of eighty per sons In a single community and the injury of 400 more must be rated as a catastrophe, especially when the visitation is ac companied by tremendous property de struction. It appears that a large number of those who lost their lives were boating on an adjoining lake and had no chance for safety when the cy clone came roaring along, demolishing buildings, uprooting trees and driving everything movable before it. Probably when the wires are working again the full accounts of this visitation will in crease the record of losses, for it is as sured that the storm swept through a fairly populous region both before and after it struck Regina. Judging from present accounts, there will be no need of help from this country to prevent suf fering in the stricken Canadian city. It would be a great convenience for statesmen whose duties at the United States Capitol ought to detain them if both conventions were held In Washing ton. Assembling the home folks at a conven tion. for the purpose of letting them see Just how a great personal triumph is go fng to be worked out is alwajs a risky enterprise. There were times when the only way to produce a demonstration would have been for a representative of the weather bureau to unfurl a cold wave Use Rumor has it that precedence in the subordinate ranks of the Roosevelt pro gressives is still considered worth quar reline for. There are moments in the life of a con vention patriot when the square meal becomes as much a consideration as the square deal. Tammany has never I>een abl? to pro duce an o'ive branch that did not look like poison Ivy. No, gentle reader, there was no typo graphical error The word is "moose," not "mouse." A steam roller with a hot box is a very slow and exasperating mechanism. Needless Aviation Deaths. Apparently yesterday's double aviation fatality at Boston is attributable to reck lessness. At a helg+it of about 1,000 feet the aviator, the first woman to win a license as an aerial pilot in this country, star'ed to volplane, taking too sharp an angle, with a result that the sudden gust of air tipped the machine too close to the perpendicular, so that it lost Its hold on the air and fell. As far as the acci dent was observed from the ground noth ing broke, and the disaster was caused solely by the effort to descend without power too abruptly. Whether the pres ence of a passenger In the monoplane had eny effect upon the stability In the cir cumstances cannot be determined, but there seems to be no evidence that the tlight would not have been successfully accomplished hsd the volplane been start ed at a normal angle. The truth is that almost all of the fa talities are due to rocklessness and the desire to play pranks in the air. Occa sional a* machine breaks, as in the case at College Park recently when two liv?s wore lost, but it Is a matter of reassur ance to those who believe In the practi cal possibilities of the heavfer-than-air "flying- machine" that the percentage of mechanical failures Is small. Aviators will persist In flying in adverse ? clrcum 1 stances and in taking unnecessary chances. All but a few of those who have lost their lives have been engaged in exhibitions for public entertainment and have been j deliberately passing the lino <;f safety by | executing dangerous maneuvers. Nothing ; was to be learner! yesterday by i.iss Quimby in descending at so sharp an an gle. She doubtless thought to display her ? nerve or skill In order to give a thrill to those who were watching her. Had she been content to return to the earth nor mally she and her companion would to day have been alive. The hope is that these successive aviation sacrifices will gradually teach the lesson that flying is extremely hazardous sport, and will arouse so strong a public sentiment against this form of dangerous entertain ment that there will no longer be support or encouragement for those who are will ing to risk their lives playing tricks in the air. ? <? In frivolous discourse something suppressed or effaced is referred to as "canned." Statistics recite that Balti more takes the lead in America s can ning industry. The New York delegation still trem bles with indignation to think how nearly somebody succeeded in snatch ing its admission ticket. Mayor Preston managed to make a con siderable pro.irress by announcing the doc trine, "Welcome to our city." and then standing pat. Critics who once called Bryan "the boy orator" now acknowledge his ma turity and call him "the old man of the sea." SHOOTING STABS. BY PHILANDER JOHNSON. Deliberately Avoided. "Why didn't you have more harmony in your convention?" "We were afraid," replied Senator Sorghum, "that we might be considered capable of entering into one of these 'gen tlemen's agreements' that have fallen under so much popular suspicion." Concerning Deadlocks. "I am the man with the deadlock!" said the resolute campaigner. "Yes," replied the grewsome jester. "But the man who fools "with the dead lock may find himself on the way to the political cemetery." 'Tis Often Thus. We had a slate. Our candidate Smiled forth from it so brave and fair. But cruel Fate Picked up that slate And drew another's picture there. An Encouraging Observation. "The prayers delivered at the great conventions have been beautiful." "Yes,-' replied the delegate. "I am pleased to observe that our nation is pro gressing in religious ideals. The prayers were the only utterances that met with unanimous approval." An Essential to Patriotism. "So you are a conservationist ?" "Yes," replied the man who Is active in politics. "But after attending two summer conventions I am convinced that something must be done to prevent any possibility of shortage in the supply of palm leaf fans." 'When a delegate figures lip his railway fares, hotel bills and the price of a new suit of clothes he almost forgets how much he loves his country. Casabianca Recalled. The boy climbed up above the deck. His chest far out he threw. Ho cried "Amid the flame and wreck A hero you shall view! 1 spilled the matches, and the blaze With fine effulgence glows; So here I stand that all may gaze On my intrepid pose!"' Then came the skipper and the mate. The bo's'n and the cook. On shore there was a concourse great For one last lingering look. Then old Bill Billows gave a jerk That raised his trousers higher And yelled, "Come down and go to work. There isn't any fire!" Progress in Platforms. From the Philadelphia Ijedcer. The democrats appear to have fash ioned an excellent platform, with the necessary "ringing" quality for cam paign uses. Bryan predicted that not a half dozen men in the convention would object to it, and in general, perhaps, there will be little objection to its terms among democrats. In fundamentals the chief difference between the republican and democratic platforms will be found in the tariff planks, and even here each party has proceeded with a certain < aution that bespeaks an effort to placate the "safe and sane." Nearly One a Day. From the ?w York Herald. According to the report of the National Highways Protective Society for .Tune, automobiles in New York city killed twenty-six persons during the thirty days of that month. Besides 153 were Injured. Twenty of the victims of fata! accidents were under sixteen years of age. Haw long the community will stand this ever Increasing death toll is a question. Ameri cans are long suffering, but with the fre quent reports of the active agents In such accidents putting on speed and escaping It would not be surprising if we should hear of the people taking justlee in these cases into their own hands. Red Bandannas and Anarchy. From the CTili'ag-o Jonrwl. So far. the red bandanna handkerchiefs, emblems of the new "bull moose" party, have not become conspicuous in society or the show windows of tradesmen. If they are to become the ensigns of a new national political organization, it is about time for them to begin to wave. Inci dentally, It may be inquired how the pocket banners are to be distinguished from the emblems <if anarchists. All Right Otherwise. From th(* Rochester Posl-F.xpress. There are almost 12,000 lawyers actively practicing in New York city. We dare say, however, that otherwise many of them lead exemplary lives. The Solution. From the Philadelphia Presa. There ran never be an entirely satis factory state of things In this country until all of us can be President. Southern-Born Candidates. From the Ronton Transcript. The leading candidates at Baltimore are southern born. This has not happened before In the recollection of any political student. Companion Book. From the St. Louis Times.
