Mr. Sherman and the Succession.
Mr Sherman's death, as did the announcement
that it was approaching, will
ause universal and sincere sorrow. He
bad many political admirers and a host
<f personal friends, and deserved them
.ill. A sturdy comrade and a fair opponent,
he did his part with all his heart
and did it well. It Is a notable accomplishment
to become a leader, first in the
eadlng state of the Union, and then In
the Congress of the United States. This
Mr. Sherman put to his credit by prepa ation
for the public business and great
.ndustry in discharging every duty cora:nitted
to his hands. He has gone at an
arly age?under sixty?and at a time
when his party needed him. but not too
-oon to rob him of an excellent place In
tistory. He had shown his mettle, and
nade honorable remembrance secure.
Not until November 12 will notice be
:aken of Mr. Sherman's death by the republican
organization. Then the national
ommittee win meet pureua.ni iu urn iu
ill the vacancy on the national ticket.
The selection will derive much Importance
should Tuesday's result throw the
ores.dential election into the House. But
if. as now appears altogether probable.
*he democrats are the winners, then the
epubl can problem will look to the bringing
together of the two factions of the
r>arty for service in the congressional
elections two years hence, and in the
^residential contest four years hence. The
party will have fallen through divisions,
and can hope to stand again only through
union.
The most prominent of the insurgents
are Mr. La Follette, Mr. Cummins. Mr.
n?Vf- Mw rl jyc.
dlsc'osure of graft otj a targe scale, talk
about the purification that has brought
about a higher degree of official honesty
than has prevnl'ed for thirty years. Now
York's sense of humor will doubtless respond
to this proclamation.
Tf Oscar Straus once complimented William
Sulzer by saying he would vote for
him. Mr. Fulzer should not be outdone
In his desire to honor Mr. Straus as a
distinguished adversary. Possibly the
two gentlemen might consent to consider
themselves paired.
Those documents burled almost out of
sight In the farthest pigeon-hole are the
party platforms adopted last summer.
A New Boosevelt Note.
Reports of the great Roosevelt meeting
.n New York last evening Indicate a most
remarkable reception for the third term
candidate who made his first speech since
the attack upon him at Milwaukee two
weeks and a half ago An immense multitude
of people cheered him loudly, and
for so long a time that he became wearied
by the delay and the tremendous tumult.
It was expressive tribute of personal
fealty But the reports of the meeting
?-arry another note that must be more or
less disquieting to those who are concerned
for the success of the Rooaevelt
campaign A new element seemed to have
come into the colonel's discourse. He endeavored
in the course of his speech to
make it plain to his hearers that the campaign
upon which he has enlisted is not
calculated to bring Immediate results, but
that time must be had for the evolution
of the reforms and changes which the
"bull moose" platform proposes. With a
more solemn and ten perate style of delivery
than has heretofore characterized
his public utterances, the candidate tried
to Impress upon hia partisans ther-- resent
that ail the things set forth as necessary
for the redemption of the country
< an not accomplished in a hurry, and
DUI dil, Jir> X iduic* anu
They are all of national fame, and two
are candidates in this campaign. Mr.
Borah is seeking re-election to the Senate,
and Mr. Beveridge is the progressive candidate
for Governor of Indiana.
The most prominent straight republicans
-.vho are yet on friendly terms with the
insurgents on personal scores are Mr.
Fairbanks and Secretary Stimson. Mr.
Fairbanks has demonstrated fine capacity
both as senator and Vice President;
and while he was active for Mr. Taft at
Chicago, and has since been actively for
his election, he has not Incurred the criticism
of the progressives as have some
others fighting at his s.de.
In the case of Mr. Stimson, while he is
a member of the cabinet and loyal to his
chief, only two years- ago he was sup?>orted
for Governor of New York by
many of the men now enrolled as progressives
in that state.
The national committee is of course
strictly partisan, and has the power to
name Mr. Sherman's successor. But
it is open to advice, and is likely to receive
a great many suggestions before the
day appointed for action.
Gaynor Talks.
Mayor Gaynor Is evidently making an
effort to rehabilitate himself in New
York, where he has suffered seriously In
Prestige as a result of his impetuous defense
of the po ice department In the
first phase of the agitation following the
killing of Herman Rosenthal. He Is boginning
to make addresses again before
organizations, and the other night he
talked to 300 members of a Baptist
hureh men's club, and to!d them what
he thought of police graft and particularly
what he thought of the people who
have been pounding him and the po'ice
commissioner ever since the killing. He
declared that the night Rosenthal was
shot the po ice department of New York
was cleaner and freer from graft than it
had been for a generation. This Is a
broad assertion that may later bother the
mayor somewhat for justification. The
aldeimanic committee now in session and
*u- John Doe proceedings before the
- .and jury are calculated to bring facts!
to light that will put the municipal execu- ;
ive to hard straits to Justify his wo-ds. i
it may be that Mavor Gaynor has honest- |
v and seriously tried to eradicate graft
from the New York police department.
Perhaps he has reduced the evil. But
it surelv seems rather indiscreet to stand
before an audience and. in the light of
the conviction of a police lieutenant for
a murder p ot conceived to prevent the
that the economic millennium sought li
not something for tomorrow ?r next /Mr,
or the year after next As this Wei wai
emphasised by the speaker, it is reported,
his hearers became less and less enthusiastic.
un,tti finally they received In silence
his admonition that they must be patient
in their work for the establishment ol
progressive principles. Tt was rjufte evident
that the crowd at Madison Square
Garden is not disposed to be patient. It
wants the progressive platform put into
efTect forthwith. It looks upon the standard
bearer as one who is quite capable of
obtaining the amendment of the Constitution
and the enactment of all the reformatory
legislation proposed' by some
short cut hitherto undiscovered. Without
a question there is a feeling in some parts
of this .country that Col. Roosevelt can
work political wonders, and that all that
is necessary to cure all existing evils is to
nlace him nnnp mnrp in th*> IThltp Hntiso
The Madison Square Garden speech indicates
that he recognizes the danger of
this sort of faith in his powers, perhaps
that he realizes that he cannot be elected
President this year and that it is necessary
to hold together the people who have
joined his standard during the present
campaign, and use them as the nucleus
for a winning party four years hence.
This is not the Roosevelt who has been
before the country so much during the
past few yeans. One misses the cocksure
note of absolute confluence which has
characterized him heretofore. Nothing is
heard about "knocking them through the
ropes" and "beating them to a frazzle."
This is a new voice, a voice counseling
long-range calculation, and the change is
so sudden that there is no wonder that
the thousands assembled last night at
Madison Square Garden checked their
cheers and sat in silent wonderment when
the apostle of immediate change preached
patience. * ?
Mr. Wilson and the South.
Josephus Daniels of North Carolina, a
prominent figure at national democratic
headquarters, predicts to The Star's representative
sojourning in New York a
record-breaking vote for Wilson and
Marshall In the south. This in rep.y to
the assertion that the progressives are
strong down there.
As Mr. Dante's is a southern man and
in position to know the details' of the
southern situation his prediction is entitled
to much consideration.
The south next week in supporting the
democratic ticket will not feel that she is
voting for free trade. She Is strongly for
protection. Louisiana wants the tariff
wall preserved around sugar. Alabama,
Georgia and Tennessee want stiff duties
kept on iron and coal. Virginia and the
Carolinas have fingers in the protection
pie, ana want to continue to snare tnc
goodies.
The democrats of those states appraise
the ta;lff plank of the Baltimore platform
as a bluff for po.ltics only. They
tole:ate it because convinced from the
record that an honest ta iff-for-revenueon:y
measure wl'.l.not result from a national
democratic victory. They remember
1801, when Henry Watterson drew
the platfo m, and Mr. Cleveland qualified
it in his letter of acceptance, and a
democratic Congress repudiate^ .!!. What
was done then, they calculate, can bo,
and will be, done again. 'They have no
: fear of anything resembling an honest
redemption of what Mr. Bryan c early
set forth at Baltimore on the tariff subject,
and they also calcu'ate on getting
their share of the protection preserved
in any revision of the ta: iff under the
Wi son administration.
Though not more moved by the con'
sideration than their brethren of other
sections, or than voters of all parties are..
| the democrats of the south know w hat
| the cutting of a pie moans, and they are
getting their platters - ready. They are
active, and seeing to It that, their activity
is observed. Tbey want the polling
to show that they were alive on election
; day, and helped swell the popular vote
for the restoration of the party to power.
Then when the division of the pastry
begins they wll' be able to present themse'ves
at the counter with the greater
hope and confld?npc<
The so-called progressive campaign in
the south 1ms been ? laOghable.sha.in.
Organised to deceive voters elsewhere.
It has never deceived voters anywhere.
Nobody with a shred of knowledge, and
In position to speak frankly, has ever
Imagined for a moment or contended that
the democratic party this year need
spend a sing e anxious moment about any
southern state. The progressives could
more easily carry the moon or the planet
Mars than any portion of the so'id south.
1
The current campaign has been marked
by a variety of unfortunate episodes, some
of them tragic, some unpleasant and some
bordering on the absurd. Its close must
be hailed with a sense of relief alike by
victors and vanquished.
1 i
According to statistics the use of tobacco
and alcohol is on the increase. If
| a higher cost of living should prove inevitable
there will be a chance of meeting
it to a certajn extent, by some wholesome
economies. ?.
While contributions, however large, cannot
call for the bestowal of hero medals,
the progressive party might show its ap|
prectatlon by Issuing a limited number of
i merit cards bearing the words "For a
i Good Trust."
When the public is so frankly appreciative
of comedy relief It seems something
of a mistake toeldetrack Suspender
Jack entirely.
' " 1 '
A great mistake was made when Jack
Johnson broke Into publicity without the
assistance of a corps of trusty press
agents.
Closing In on Turkey.
A dispatch from Sofia olaims for the
Bulgarian army operating near Adrianople
a complete victory over the Turks at
the town of Lule (or Lilej Burgas, which
lies about one-tbird of the way from
Adrianople to Constantinople and about
half way from the former point to
Tcherkeskioi, where a bridge was destroyed
the other day on the line of the
railway. The Turkish second line of defense
stretched from Lile Burgas to Demotica,
which lies immediately south of
* j a- t . m 1 al. _ __
I Airianopie i hub ine rapture of L.ile
Burgas, if confirmed, indicates that the
| Turkish right flank has been turned. In
j that case Adrianople is practically Invested
and cut off from Constantinople. As
1 to the subsequent operations, much depends
upon how lar?"e a portion of the
Turkish army has been concentrated at
Adrianople and how large a reserve the
porte has east of the fighting point for a
final stand against a possible Bulgarian
attack upon the capital. An Impression,
however, prevails that If Adrianople 1?
menaced with Immediate capture the
Turks will permit the offering of overtures
for peace. Indeed, It Is difficult tc
Conceive a continued resistance of the
Balkan allies after the taking of sq inv
nortant a DOaitinn and th?
menacing: of the capitai. With the Servian
armies steadily pressing south toward
Saloniki and the Greeks advancing
toward the same point from their side
with victory after victory. Turkey's position
becomes dally more desperate- Th<
Montenegrin attack in the extreme wesi
serves chiedy to prevent a complete con
#
t>
i centratlon of the Turkish forces. Thus I
, with this minor but effective distraction I
t In the west and the serious campaign of
,* the Bulgars in the east. Turkey Is ex.
posed to bisection by a union of the
. Servian and Greek armies working toaether
across the central provinces. Thus
? far the" campaign' had beeii handled with j
effective strategy by -the allies and with j
, evidence of a complete unity of purpose !
and harmony of operations. Each of the
i four nations has gone at . its assigned
duty* vigorously and wun so mue aeiay
that the great military machine of the;
Turks has been taken completely at a t
disadvantage.
The assumption that an energetic can- j
didate could not stop any panic that
might assert itself after his election, by
talking it to death, is a reflection on his;
. professional ability.
I
Justjce Goff displayed admirable self- j
restraint in avoiding the effort to make a.
personal impression so often manifest *
on the bench when a notorious prisoner ;
is sentenced.
While northwestern Europe is studying ,
to put military science on a higher and
more civilized aspect southeastern Europe
preserves warfare in its most bar
barous forms.
Since Kaiser William has established
himwJT as a critic, ex-President Roosevelt
may be tempted to go ahead with
the play he once said he was going to j
write.
1 After the election is over a certain
portion of the public is likely to insist on.
, postponing the revision of the tariff In
' order to forget it for a white.
The high cost of striking is the problem
that seems likely to confront .the
discontented hotel waiters.

Call of the Home land.'
, , - v
From the Chicago Record-Herald.
The call of the fatherland has been
heeded throughout America. From the '
steel mills of Gary and t*e coal mines of ;
the east the sons of the Balkan peoples
have rallied to the help of their kinsmen j
at home, eager to assist in ejecting the
j impossible Turk. Xo doubt the few Turks
; here have been equally loyal, though less
j has been written about them. There is
i something particularly touching abouJL
! this exodus of Greeks, ' ^lonteiuegt-injrf' '&!
; Servians and Bulgarians. What meriio- i
i ries do they bear to their home. l&nds
j that constitute a claim on their loyalty /
; So far as material conditions go, the
claim is very sl'ght. Though they came
to America to better their material condition.
they are not materialists. The industrial
mills here have not ground t*e
manhood out of them. Xo, they are
fighting for an idea! whie^ some philosophers
are fond of declaring moribund)
?the persiPtent ideal of patriotism.
One of life's Mysteries.
From the Loni Brine Oonrter-Jonrnrt.
Xothing in the awful mystery of life
and death is more inexp'lcable than the
widening contrasts of human fortune.
Why should one child be brought into
, the world to wealth, dignity and honor,
and another child to suualor. penury and ;
crime? Can these disparities of condi- !
tion be mended th ough the political i
fabric? If we should place a man in
the presidency for life, invested with all
. the powers needful to a wise and benevolent
absolutism, could he ch nge to
any appreciable degree the existing' or;
der? Cou!d he remotely reach the disease
i of sin and smth. of greed and craft, of
i poverty and wealth so as to give the ;
. halt the lame and the blind so. ie chance
' ^ gainst the healthy, the energetic and
' gifted?
A Vile Custom..
From the Rot.ton Post.
It seems that the work of the federal
: public health service in investigating the
, sanitary condit'ons of domestic steamboat
lines was needed. Officers of tlvs
bureau report that the drinking tanks on
a certain class of steamboats are often
( filled from the river on which they ply.
In one Instance more than twenty cases
of typhoid fever fvere traced to this practice.
It 1? almost incredible thai in. these '
days any steamboat company could be .
i mean enough or ignorant enough to do
. any such thing as that. But the fact that
! some are guilty of it shows the necessity
of immed ate reform. It is a pity that
they cannot be proceeded against crimi1
nally.
