The Rayner-Cockran Debate.
Now th's is something like. At last a j
Joint debate. We are to hear democracy j
and Kooseve! t'sni expounded: from the |
same platform tiie same even'ng. As Mr. \
Roosevelt would say. bully!
And adding interest to the fact are the j
men who will face each other. Both are !
eloquent. Both are experienced stump- !
crs Both are lawyers. So that the pub- j
lie may promise itself a treat.
Isidor Rayner is a democrat, but has j
rot been happy in his democracy since j
Mr. Bryan began to show the way. If he
shed any tears over either of Mr. Bryan's
defeats for Pres'dent they were not
caught and preserved in a barrel. He
may be happy now. although the eand - j
uaie ne is supporting was nominated by j
Mr. Bryan and the platform upon which :
he is standing was written by Mr Bryan, j .
But Mr. Wilson, like Mr. Rayner, was ( j
anti-Bryan for years, and that is com- i
forting. | 3
Bourke Cockran was once a democrat, |
and at that time a conspicuous servant of | ^
Tammany Hall. He began pol tical life j
as a protege of Richard Croker, who
transferred hint to Charles F. Murphy,
who, a:ter a trial, dismissed him. He
was for a time a near-republican, stumping
the country for McK'.nley. And now
he is a progressive, ha!l ng Mr. Roosevelt
as a man who has always been right, and
w ho is "r ghter" today than ever before.
Now. if these expert fencers will go at
matters and each other properly the exhibition
should be both thrilling and instructive.
Let neither take account of
the other's past embarrassments and vagaries.
Let Mr. Rayner forget Mr. Cockran'js
shiftti fpnm c /lii I ?
_ __ ?? vial C3.UV l?' diUCa UCl illl ^
Cockran forget Mr. Rayner's long impa- f
tience with Bryanisrn, only to be caught t
in the net at last. Ja*t the dead past |
bury its dead. i
Mr. Rayner's text should be. What is s
democracy, and to what, particularly on f
the tariff fjuestion, does the Baltimore r
platform pledge the party? There is *
tome doubt. Mr. Wilson's interpretations c
arc not giving general satisfaction. They t
are being criticised both at home and t
abroad. What says the Maryland scna- fc
tor? What, in his opinion, will result if
the democracy is again intrusted witn
power?
Mr. Cockran'8 text should be. What is
Jtooseveltism, and what are the changes
in our fundamentals contemplated by the r
so-called progressive platform? How far, 8
with that for guide, should we progress r
out of the course we have been pursuing '
for a hundied and thirty years? How 0
much wiser is Theodore Roosevelt than
the benighted men who framed ine Con- ^
stitution. and the slow coaches who have *
since been conducting the country's busi- e
iiess under it? e
The Rayner-Cockran debate may not e
rank in history with the Hincoln-Douglas P
debate, but it should prove one of the ?
star features of the present campaign, t
And why should not the two men repeat *
their performance outside of Maryland? o
1<
Col. Roosevelt sometimes speaks with v
the same impetuous freedom that he ex- '
eri ised when the office he held compelled "
a*, least the appearance of respectful at- 1
tention. He fails to realize the differ- 8
tnce between the man who actually holds s
the big stick and the man who i? o
Ir.g after it.
, llt a
The discussion as to whether Henry '
\Vatterson says "Thank you, suh," or s
"Thank you, sah," may prompt Mr. c
Bryan to arise and inquire what the
Kentucky editor has to be thankful for,
anyhow.

The Third-Term Issue. n
! a
Remarkably little is being heard in this I f
campaign regarding the third term issue p
which the candidacy of Theodore Roorcaelt
precipitates. Vet it is by far the
most important single factor in the whole
prudential fight. One would have tl
th" ic;iit that by this time the air would c
be vtK-al with the appeals of speakers r
for the r< publican or the democratic party
urging the people to remember the
unwritten law against a third presidential
term. Perhaps this point is being *
discussed quietly, but as far as the eye c_
< an note In the prints and the ear can ^
I ear in the speeches the third term
question is subordinated to other matters,
the control of trusts tr>?- ruininn i
of the tariff. the suppression of bos.*?*, a
tn?- amelioration of social conditions and 1
??> on through the long list of issues
raised in the course of tiiis extraordinary
canvass for popular support. r
No matte) what importance may be j
attached to other questions the third term (
proposition is actually the most vitally
significant. It is Imitossihle to dodge it
in behalf of Roosevelt by the declaration
that if elected his service would have 1
been interrupted by a lapse of four years. '
And it is equally impossible to set up a *
defense for his present position as candidate
for a third term on the ground
that his first was not a full cne. but cov- s
ered only three years and a half. When i
he left the White House on the 4th of j
Alarch. 11K?y. he was regarded by the people
as laving served two presidential
terms. On the nlglu of his first election,
in November, 1PG4, he had declared in t
the most positive, explicit terms that he *
would not again in any circumstances
l>e a candidate for the office, for he
recognized that the American people were (
unalterably o;?|n>sed to a third presldentlal
term for any one man. and lie later
reaffirmed tl is voluntary renunciation of
all conceivable claim to a renomin.ition.
declaring tl.at hi rra.-<r?|e?l the soirft and | ?
not l!? letter of i"he tradition as govei n-j .
mi.- Ihm, ; u'l forbidding an? continuums-!
ii tin pi? Mdwiiul office after the close i
. f hi.-- second term. The only excuse!
iK.t h<- i :s of ered foi his present po?t1
on is a s!ia iclcss pretense that on
, r-e two oecis'ons when he voluntarily
i.,nl iihnsclf out of any future race lie
: want-throe " ensceniix e" terms. t
A U^fd nomination was denied to Gcu. , t
Irant. after the lapse of a term following
Ills two terms In office, on the grounc
that the inviolate traditions of the country
were against the return of any mar
to the presidency for a third period 01
service. If he had been nominated bj
lint of the persistence of his enthusiastic
partisans he would undoubtedly have beer
lefeated on this score, despite the higl
regard in which he was held by the
t>eople of the United States.
It may be that the third term issue is
rot regarded seriously by the public be
ause of the feeling that Roosevelt i!
lot at all likely to be elected in Xo
rember and that the question is there
'ore only academic. This i? a serioush
nistaken view. Regardless of Roosevelt !
hances, the third term question shouh
ie considered as of paramount imi>orance.
It is a reflection upon the good
'aith of those who have in the past opioid
and proclaimed the tradition against
i third presidential term that, for purloses
of factional revenge or through
ilind hero worship, they should be now
supporting a candidacy which strikes at
m?> of the fundamental principles ot
\merlean government.
Progressing Toward Health.
The fart that speakers at the hygienic
ongTess do not agree in many eases af
o the origin and causes and means of
omnmnieation of diseases should nol
ead to despair on the part of the public
ivith regard to the possibility of the prevention
and cure of stubborn ailments.
In respect to most of the ills that afflict
Humanity there Is virtually a universal
igreement among the bacteriologists and
practitioners. It is only In the ease of
t few of the diseases that have not yet
>een positively "isolated" and their
lgeneies of communication determined
hat there is dispute. Such a case is
hat of infantile paralyais, which has
>een widely discussed at this congress,
with numerous theories advanced rejecting
its origin and means of trans
nission. This is not necessarily a token
)f failure to make progress. On the contrary,
the very divergence of views at
>resent will probably stimulate Investigators
to further efforts and widen the
ange of their work, until some day, perhaps
immediately, or mayl>e a few years
lence. the organism and its carrying host
>r agency will have been determined berond
the possibility of doubt and a means
>f prevention and perhaps a cure assured,
rhe same Is true with cancer and with
several other diseases whch have not jot
cme into the classification of preventable
ind curable ailments.
Considering what has been accomplished
n the course of a quarter of a century,
:here should be high hope of the early
conquest of practically all the diseases
:hat are known definitely to assail the
luman system. This does not suggest.
>f course, that life will be free from the
nenace of organic derangement. Tt is
lot to be expected that a state of hygiene
vi 11 be established that will absolutely
safeguard people from disease germs and
nfluences. But when the science of
?acteriology has isolated the disease prfn ip-le
and medicine has provided its cure
he terrors of these afflictions will have
>een very greatly reduced. Meanwhile it
s inevitable that there should bo a constantly
rising standard of individual and
community hygiene and that the ignoance
of persons and of groups regarding
he need of cleanliness and care will beome
less and less, working constantly
oward the ideal condition of a perfectly
lealthful state of society, not perhaps to
>e attained, but nevertheless approached.
Autumn at Hand.
With snow in the west Washington
nay as well settle down to the undertanding
that the summer is over. It
nay have thought so a few weeks ago.
>ut hot weather came in the early pait
>f this month and caused it to change
ts mind, a large part of the community
ieing for some days firmly convinced
hat the seasons had altered and the ealndars
were wrong. Then came the
quinoctial storm that officially has no
xistence, most inopportunely arriving to
mt a dampener upon the spirits of sevral
thousand guests here for convenion
business. Now the fall is at hand,
rlth a chill in the air that makes an
vercoat comfortable wearing. Soon the
eaves will turn and then Washington
rill gain a new glory, its parks wonderul
pictures of autumn tonps, its treeined
streets straight stretches of tints
hat delight the eye. Each season has its
pecial attractions, and Washington posesses
perhaps in greater degree than
ther cities the opportunities for enjoyng
each in turn. The reports of frost
ind snow in the west, with early promse
of local advent, cause no apprehenion
here, but, on the contrary, arc welcome.

The War Governors.
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
j At the semi-centennial of the war gov|
emors' conference in Altoona President
Taft, who has known what it is to bf
maligned and misunderstood, dwelt upon
the encouragement given Abraham Lincoin
in a crucial hour by that remarkable
meeting of September. Ifitfc!. inspired
by Andrew f?. C'urtin. Pennsylvania's
great war governor. The meeting was
held just after the emancipation proclamation
was issued, Lincoln, in any
event. would have persisted inflexibly,
to the bitter end, in the course
that he had chosen. But when these
governors unreservedly fndorsed his
attitude, and in token of their approval
offered to raise 100,000 additional
troops, he had the realization?as President
Taft has said?of the fact that he
did not stand in courageous isolation
there was behind him the aroused determination
of the people of the north tc
help him save the Union. Critics and
Job's comforters Lincoln had in plenty
t These governors pledged their active ef
fort?they came forward with a practica
measure of assistance. It is fitting thai
their deed should be commemorated ami
extolled by the living generation that ha;
entered upon the rich inheritance of tlieli
toil, their sacrifice and their steadfast

The Slaughter of the Innocents.
From the New York World
The statistics of infant mortality submitted
to tiie hygienic congress have a
truly appalling aspect. Though 55,0Ut>,00t
; babies are born into the world annually,
13.V00.CCO of them die before they are a
year old. a number three times as great
as the population of New York city, and
all of them the victims of congenital disI
ease, neglect or parental ignorance and
i sin. What figures of decimation by
plague, pestilence or famine, by wai
earthquake or Hood, have anything likt
the ImpressivenesB of this slaughter ol
the Innocents? This is the real race suicide.
Of what use is It to bring more
children into being only to let them perish?
Tlio darker lines of the picture arc

Proper Sh' :-s for the Young,
HE difficult problem of securing proper
/ \ shoes for c..ildren is met scientifically in
y?I^ our shoe section devoted to the correct
fitting of the young folk, from the first
shoes for baby to those worn by misses, growing
girls and boys and youths. Shoes to meet all their
needs.
Emphasis is placed upon this fact?our shoes
are not made over stock lasts, but constructed on
special lasts assuring foot comfort and enduring
service. We know that the shoe worn by the
average boy and girl of today must have the right
sort of material in it to furnish sufficient resistance
to the hard, rough usage that it gets in ac
tual service. W e put only the best m our shoes,
and the increasing sales year after year attest its
recognition by our customers.
