Boss-Ridden Parties.
Den>ing the progressive assertion that
the democratic party is "boss-ridden,"
Mr. Bryan says: "It is a fart that a few
txvsses came to Baltimore with the full
intention of running the convention, but
They departed the s^a-iest set of bosses
you ever saw."'
A few? Were not all the bosses of any
consequence In the demoeratie party on
hand? And did not some of them help
nominate Mr. Wilson? Mr. Murphy held
oft from the Wilson men, but Mr. Sullivan
and Mr. Taggart so handled themselves
as to he free when the break came,
and were in the Wilson camp at the end.
And while Mr. Murphy and his chief,
Tfcomas K. Kyan. and their former candidate
for President. Alton B. Parker,
returned home slightly discomfited, they
recovered quickly, and are now most decidedly
and atrenuouslv in the ring. The
democratic hope of carrying New York
rests on Mr. Murphy; and Mr. Ryan, who
has just landed from a trip to Europe,
expresses a fervent wish for Mr. Wilson's
success.
As for the others, where may two more
buoyant men he found than Mr. Sullivan
and Mr. Tag-'art? The former is hard at
work In the Illinois vineyard, while Mr.
Taegart. a welcome figure at democratic
national headquarters, is promising a
majority of a round hundred thousand for
Mr. Wilson in Indiana.
The demonstration at Baltimore against
the bosses was stage-play. The effort
was to impress the Independents; and. in
a measure, the effort succeeded. But it
would have failed if the independents
had not been in a humor for imposition.

Taft, and having no liking for Mr. Roosevelt
wanted something with whieli to
save ti>eir faces in going over to Mr.
"Wilson. And it must be confessed they
were satisfied with very little.
Rut while the democratic party has lost
no bosses as the result of Mr. Bryan's
triumph at Baltimore, the progressive
censure is ridiculous. Look at the progressive
party. Look at Mr. Perkins, the
boss financier. Look at Mr. Flinn, a ward
hots of the old school, aspiring to a national
opportunity and influence. Look
at Mr. Dixon, a state boss threatened
with defeat at home and striving to keep
Ids head above water by deserting his
old school and swimming with a new.
With these and other progressives denouncing
all the bosses in the republican
party, with whom they for years were
glad to co-operate, and from whom at
that time they received much assistance,
and Mr. Bryan denouncing the bosses in
the democratic party, who for years supported
him, we have a spectacle less edifying
than instructive, and vastly Instructive
as showing how little gratitude
has to do with practical politics as played
by practical men.
The Government and the Guard.
Col. Garrard's report to the War Department
on the annual encampment of
the District National Guard raises, an important
question in reference to the relationship
between the Guard and the government.
Having ascertained that about
one-third of the membership of the Guard
at the camp were departmental employes
of one sort or another, he now recommends
that the brigade he reorganized to
eliminate all public service employes, on
the ground that in. case of war and the
assignment of the District brigade to
duty the departure of these men from
their regular employment would seriously
embarrass the I'nited States in its transaction
of business at the capital. It Is
to be doubted if this is as serious a contingency
as the officer contemplates, and
In any case it demands very grave consideration
by the Secretary of War and
the President before a recommendation
1" made to t'nnaress. To eliminate from
membership of the District National
Guard all employes of the departments
would seriously handicap the organization,
rind would moreover throw a heavy burden
upon tlie business interests of the
c?ty. which now supply two-thirds of the
men in the ranks. It is to the government's
interest to maintain a well organized
tnilitia in the District of Columbia.
It is quite conceivable that the time might
come when a force of this character
would l?e ..f supreme service, not merely
to the local community, hut to the I'nited
Htates itself As for the possible depletion
of the government's own working
force in time of a general outbreak of
hostilities demanding the presence of the
District National Guard elsewhere than
in Washington, it is altogether probable
that in such an event it would be impossible
to hold here in clerical or in mechanical
service the men who feel the
military spirit and are quick to respiond
?o the call to arms. The government. Indeed.
would And them of greater use at
the front, lighting its battles, than here
driving its machines or keeping its accounts,
and it should be a matter of
; pride that so large a proportion of the
local militiamen are department cderks
and machinists. If this suggestion has

The Local Hotel Workers.
As a result of an agitation by outside
influences the Washington hotel workers
r.re in a state of discontent that may
i ad to a serious disagreement with their
employers. Meetings have been held latei
for the purpose of organizing these
men and women, who have heretofore
i .aintaim d amicable and oil the whole
: ?tisfac?ory relations, and there appears
to he some danger that within a few days
the cooks, waiters, chambermaids, porters
and bell boys of the local hotels will
> rike for u readjustment of wages and
t e ?*Unslon of privileges heretofore
?ii iiic?l. This is a repetition of the experience
of S09 York and more recently
A
of Boston, where in consequence of what
has seemed to be a strlotly professions!
agitation the hotel workers have struck
work and tried to prevent the Ailing of
their places by others.
It is quite possible that the wage scales
in the hotels should be changed. Certain
Instances have been cited showing that In
some cases men and women are compelled
to work long hours under trying
conditions for very small compensation.
But it Is a very grave question whether
a strike such as that which was under?"
vnrlr la the beat
method of securing a betterment of conditions.
A hotel is a highly organised
establishment, but It is not impossible to
fill vacancies or to find sufficiently trained
people to replace workers who leave in a
body. It is the natural disposition of
managers, therefore, to resist attempts to
force changes and concessions by this
means. It is just as natural, indeed, for
them to go ahead with their business In
their own way as for the workers to
seek the Improvement of their conditions.
The chances of local hotel workers obtaining
relief from whatever hardships they
may new endure are naturally lessened
by the fact that the inspiration for their
present movement is supplied by those
who have made it their business for some
months past to go about from city to city
organizing and working to the end of
disturbing relations.
The public has a direct interest in such
a matter as this because it depends. lit'
its use of hotels, very largely upon the
service rendered and the efficiency of individuals.
A guest can he made supremely
uncomfortable by the people who are
employed to do the work of a hotel, and
in this business perhaps more than any
other upon efficiency and willingness and
good spirit depends continuity of custom.
It is to be hoped that the hotel workers
of Washington will he satisfied as to their
reasonable demands without any disturbance
of relationship and in circumstances
to assure continuous peace in the local
hotel world. They should consider very
carefully indeed the question of their
ultimate welfare before heeding the advice
of those who have no stake themselves
in the case and whose interest It
is to work them into a ferment of dissatisfaction
and belligerence.
Mr. Wilson at Pittsburgh.
Again Mr. Wilson assures the voters
that he is not a free trader, and that
democratic success next month will not
mean free trade for the country.
The Pittsburgh date line will carrv the
message far. and secure attention for it.
The Smoky city is a protection stronghold,
and the second city in size in a!
state which has been developed by protection.
For the first time in half a century
there is talk of a majority in Pennsylvania
for the democratic candidate for
President. A bitter warfare between the
republican factions gives the democrats
high hopes.
But this warfare has no bearing on the
policy of protection. William Flinn, who
is leading one faction, is as much a proI
tectionist as Boies Penrose, who is leading
the other. Both subscribe with equal
loyalty to the policy for which the state
only eight years ago under the Penrose
leadership gave the republican national
ticket a half-million majority.
Naturally and shrewdly, therefore, Mr.
Wilson speaks soothingly to the protection
electorate. Be not disturbed, good
people. We mean you no harm. Your
prosperity and profits will not be destroyed.
Rather will they be increased
by the course we shall pursue with respect
to the tariff. Our purpose is not
to tear down, but readjust. When we
get through there will still be protection,
and enough for all.
In the language of the curbstone, can
Mr. Wilson '"get away with it"? If he
is elected, and addresses Congress in this
vein, will that body, if democratic, support
him? Will it prepare and pass a
tariff revision measure leaning toward
protection as strongly as Mr. Wilson's
present deliverances are doing?
The democratic failure of eighteen years
ago grew out of a somewhat similar difficulty.
Then the party confronted a low
tariff platform denouncing protection as
unconstitutional and robbery under the
forms of law, and tried to evade its duty
?by a hodgepodge revision of the tariff
which pleased nobody. Democratic protectionists
got less than they desired, but
a great deal more than was good for the
party's reputation; and the democratic
free traders characterized the measure as
one of "perfidy and dishonor."
The democratic party is still divided on
the tariff. But the men who were a
great power in the party on the free trade
side a score of years ago are dead, or in
retirement. Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Carlisle,
Mr. Mills, W. Li. Wilson and Mr. Vest
are in their graves. George Gray of
Delaware is on the federal bench. Clifton
Breckinridge is out of office. Mr. Watterson
still holds to his stirring pen, but
has ceased to jab the robber barons with
it. It may be, therefore, that Mr. Wilson
as President can turn the trick, and, instead
of giving the free traders a swig
of straight red liquor, force them to be
satisfied with a little pale ale. lie seems
to be i reparing the tipple.
The old Ford Theater building has a
cheerless past and little prospect of future
usefulness. It is Important only as
a relic of events whose memory is better
perpetuated by other means.
It appears that If there is to be any

The Summer Outings Work.
The final report of the summer outings
committee of the Associated Charities
shows that the total funds during the
year covered by the work were $10,105.40.
of which amount all but fM.5? was spent.
For this money ISO mothers and 870
children were sent Into the country for a

No better Investment In the physical and
moral health of the community can possibly
be made than this- It has given
Washington over a thousand persons with
renewed vigor and has undoubtedly prevented
a great deal of sickness. If one
could know the ailments that this bit of
vacation has prevented It would doubtless
work out Into very large terms In
doctors' bills and other losses. Unquestionably
these outings have been the
cause of preventing many a home from
1 demoralisation. It is positively known
that the sickness of mothers and of children
has been Instrumental In discouraging
the wage earners and causing them
to surrender their responsibilities and
leave. A man must not be Judged too

true, evaded his duty and deserves th?

man to endure the struggle. The mora
effect of these summer outings has bee*
clearly traced In so many cases that it Ii
with absolute confidence that their pro
moters and managers annually ask foi
contributions in the name of the soda
welfare of the city. It Is evident fronr
the annual report of the committee that
every dollar was well spent. A balanct
of $8.57 remains in bank at the close ol

SHOOTING STABS.
BY PHILANDER JOHNSON.
Planning for the Future.
"When we are married," said the young
woman, "we will have a cory, old-fashioned
house, with horses and dogs, and I
will have canary birds and a nice cat. "
"Great Scott!" interrupted unromantlc
Reginald, "with all that company around,
I don't see why you should bother about
me!" ?
A City's Celebrity.
"Were you at Vienna when you were
abroad?"
"Why should I go to Vienna?" rejoined
the girl of Icy hauteur. "I care for neither
musical comedies nor sausage."
Varying Moods Beflected.
"You can't jilGge a man by his clothes."
"True," replied Miss Cayenne. "Boston,
once the home' of the bluestocking, is
now headquarters for the Red Sox."
Bull Moose.
The bull moose of the picture book,
Who has a gentle, timorous look
And who is often known to run
When some one brings along a gun?
That quadruped compared unto #
The biped who looms forth to view
We find him as we look him o'er
A mollycoddle, nothing more.
Looking for Disagreements.
"What, makes you carry so many different
campaign buttons?" asked Mr. Dolan.
"Well," replied Mr. Rafferty, "If you're
mebbe gettin* lonesome, by puttin' on. the
right one you can start a nice little argument,
no matter who you're with."
Musing on the Past.
"I can remember." said the art enthusiast,
''when large audiences assembled in
barns to see Shakespeare."
"Yep," replied Farmer Corntossel. "They
could afford to let their barns be used
that way. They wasn't bulldln" finely finished
barns like they are nowadays."
Contradiction.
As orators with words so fair
And promises so fine
With eloquence filled *11 the air
And thrilled your heart and mine,
We'd listen for a llttln while
Before we turned away
And murmured with a cynic smile,
"They don't mean all they say."
The eagerness of good intent
That kept their hearts so warm
Led them to promise as they went
More than they could perform.
In hope's glad sunshine they came out
To make ambition's hay.
They never heard our word of doubt,
"They can't mean all they say!"
Now darker banners they unfurl.
Their words bring strange regret.
Instead of promises they hurl
An angry epithet.
But to our comment old we cling.
And vow with hearts all gay
That time its usual change will bring,
They don't mean all they say.
Marconi's Affliction.
From the New York Times.
The affliction which has befallen
Gugllelmo Marconi will be felt by the
whole world. It Is perfectly true that
a man may see as much with only one
eye, with effort, as he could normally
see with two, but he cannot see as easily,
his vision is permanently impaired, and
he will bear with him throughout the
remainder of his life a keen sense of loss.
As it is likely that the surgical operation
will avert all danger of the InfflammaUon
extending to the other eye, it is well that
it was performed without further delay.
Few men of the present hour have been
as useful to their fellow men as Marconi,
and he will doubtless be able to continue
his labors in spite of his affliction.
He is in the prime of life, and he mav
find consolation in the knowledge that
many men suffering from defective vision
have accomnllshed work of vsat <m_
port an ee.
