A Campaign Mystery.
I^Hst winter tiie political world?and
particularly the democratic portion of it?
was thrown into commotion by a story
that llen!> Watterson and Col. George
Harvey had been rebuffed by Woodrow
Wilson for an attempt by them to con-*
re. t his presidential boom with the well
filled pocketbook of Thomas F. Ryan, j
For days the wires were burdened with!
the story, which Increased in details and :
interest as it traveled. Roth Mr. Watterson
and Col. Harvey denied the
charge. the former in several communications
written in his best and most vigorous
style.
Nevertheless, the yarn persisted, and
entered into the contest for delegates to
the democratic national ?onvention. At
that time Mr. Wilson's prospects were
not bright. He itad been made to appear
very much as "the schoolmaster in
politics." and as such was not holding
his own with either Mr. Clark or Gov. j
Harmon, both of whom had been longer
at the game.
Btit instantly Mr. Wilson profited by
the alleged circumstance. lie was represented
as a sort of Ajax, defying the ;
trusts and spuming offers of money aid j
from trust sources. He would rather be
right than be President. Rather than
receive a single dollar from such a man
as Thomas F. Ryan?who had been the
friend and associate of Grover Cleveland
and W. C*. Whitney in their day?he
would prefer that his presidential boom
collapse.
The attitude proved attractive to many
democrat!*, and it brought Mr. Wilson
much strength. He began to figure in
the campaign as a man who could not
be influenced by trust blandishments, and
therefore the very man for the democracy
io follow at this trust-busting period.
How many delegates were secured I
for Mr. Wilson by the appeal is not
known, and coult? not now be ascertained,
but the number could not have been inconsiderable.
Now the public is advised from several
sources that the story was an invention.
5?o money for Mr. Wilson's benefit was
solicited from Mr. Ryan by Mr. Watterson
or Col. Harvey, and none was
tendered by Mr. Ryan, direotly or indirectly.
Necessarily, of course, Mr. Wilson's
virtue was never tested. Mr. Watterson
has so stated over his signature
several times, and Col. Harvey and Mr.
R*an, under oath before the Clapp committee,
have confirmed him.
There was a row between Mr. Wilson
on the on? side, and Mr. Watterson and
Col. Harvey on the other, with the resuit
that both editors, who had been
Supporting Mr. Wilson for the presidential
nomination, ceased to communicate
with him further, and, while both accepted
the Baltimore result, neither has
been prominent in the campaign for Mr.
Wilson's election. "What was all the
?Ur, Kimmer?"
The Russian Imperial Heir.
There will be a keen sympathy throughought
the civilized world for the anxiety
of the Czar of Russia over the condition
of his only son, a child of eigji;, who is
reported to be lying .11 at one of the
Imperial hunting lodges in Poland. This
little fellow is the sole hope of the Russian
royal family for the direct succession
of Czar Nicholas upon the throne
in his own line. I'nder the Russian law
male heirs enjoy superiority in all the
lines and not until all the degrees of
maJe descent in all the male lines are
exhausted does the throne pass to the
female line. Thus if the little Grand Duke
Alexis should die the czar would on his
risath be succeeded by his brother
^flchael and failing him by his uncle the
Grand Duke Paul. The latter has a son.
Dmitri, who is now twenty-one years old
and unmarried. Thus there are three
lives at least, without reckoning the sons
of the late Grand. Duke Vladimir, uncle
of the present czar, between little Alexis
and his sisters as heirs to the throne.
The pathetic figure of this little prince, !
faring the unknown possibilities of the
future as Russia's monarch, moves the
world to commiseration. No man can
foretell his fate even though he grow to
a strong manhood, lie may he the witness,
possibly the agent, of a great
reformation, bringing the Russian people
definitely Into harmony with the pi ogress
of the world and giving them a real part
in the management of their own affairs.
He' may be a reactionary seeking to
t bet k the development of independence of
thought ana action. He may be wise
enough to relinquish the persistent pur
p. ?e ?'i uussian ruters to c arry the- czar s
flag to the warm seas through Asia, or
h- may he content to concentrate upon
a strictiy domestic policy of improvement
ami education, i'he bomb of the assassin
may await him even as it may await his
father at this time. Russia is a land of
tragic possibilities and the most optimistic
outlook for this little boy is by no
in- an* a happy one.

The Becker Trial.
The sudden close of the Becker trial in
N? w York is a great surprise, considering
the usual endurance of cases of
this character in that city. When the
< mie on which this case is based was
committed and charges of police corruption
were made in connection with it the
universal belief was that New York was
in for a protracted session of the court,
drst .in tjie procuring of a jury and second
in the hearing of evidence. But the
designation of Justice Goff to preside
at the trial gave assurance that there
would be no wasting of time at any stage
of the case.- Few men now on the bench
.. c so competent to faci'ltate a judicial
proceeding, without lessening the chances

early demonstration of his quality In this
11 spect wtien he cut the business- of getting

the expected period. Then during th
taking of testimony hp prevented timt

both sides have rested and are proceed

Seldom has there been so much impeacl
ment of veracity or so dubious an arra
of evidence givers. It is plainly the hop
of the defense to obtain a verdict throug
the discrediting of the testimony of th
men who have sworn it was Lieut. Beck*
who inspired and promoted the killing c
Rosenthal the iranibler. The defens
consists In the proposition that Beckf
Is being made the scapegoat of men wh
themselves combined to ptit Rosentht
out of the way for their own purpose!
Tf this is the truth New York has bee
the scene of one of the most remarkabl
complex assassination plots ever know?
The accusation against Becker involvt
a crime of unusual complexity and ir
genuitv, but the suggestion that Ros
and his associates hired the killing c
Rosenthal with the deliberate design c
putting the b'ame on Becker, formed a
or before or after the killing, adds con'
plication to complication. No one ca
tell what the ten men who have bee
drawn as jurors will determine. If the
believe the witnesses for the prosecutiot
who have testified with remarkabl
agreement to show Becker's inspiratio
of the crime, they will convict. If thei
faith in the veracity of these men ha
been shaken by the defense they muj
under their oath acquit.
La Follette, Present and Future.
Mr. La Follette. after keeping the put
lie guessing for a spell, makes an an
nouncement. He will not support th
republican, 'lie democratic or the pn
gressive ticket. None of them represent
his idea of what the occasion calls foi

La Follette was not chosen for chif
slaughterer, he will not w eld his snick
crsnee at all.
The democrats have been making eye
at him. and Mr. Wi'son has spoken i
public in praise of Mr. I>a Follette's re
form record, which passes in democrat!
circles as anti-republican. But Mr. L.
Follette refuses to respond to the over
tures. Neither Mr. Wilson nor his par.

t Big Business in Politics.
^ From the Xew York World0
If we may believe its representatives,
big business never plunges heavily in politics
without a benevolent purpose. Thomas
F. Ryan testified yesterday that when
he gave $4.V>,U0o to the Parker democrats
" in 1!KH he sought only "to save the orV
ganization " George W. Perkins also testified
that when funds of the Xew York
I.lfe Insurance Company were contributed
to the Roosevelt republicans in the same
s year it was done "to establish tHe gold
ri standard."
0 What the testimony of Mr. Ryan lops
not show is that his purpose was to put
the democratic organization under great
political obligations to himself, obligations
y which it could not easily ignore. What
the testimony of Mr Perkins does not
" show is that he and his associates were
1 at that time very earnestly working for
a federal law to bring all insurance companies
under national control to escape
state supervision.

legend the scene of a warfare before
