Mr. Wilson at Madison Square.
One of the strongest sentences In the
speech delivered by Mr. Wilson at the
great demonstration In his honor and
presence last night was this: "God be
pitiful to the man who promises the
American people what he Is not ready to
perform." And the same may be said
of a political party, or political combi
IMHUIJ.
So far aa Mr. Wilson himself is concerned
he Is In no danger of the divine
or the people's wrath on that score. His
promises In this campaign have been as
vague as an accomplished rhetorician
could make them. On the tariff question
he has taken both sides, declaring at one
appointment against the constitutionality
of protection, and at another giving assurances
to protected industries that they
have nothing to fear from him.
On the trust question he is foot loose
and fancy free. It would be impossible
to forecast his recommendation to Congress
from anything or all things he has
said since the Baltimore convention. Like
many others, he has the catch phrases
against monopoly at his tongue's end.
but his scheme for throttling monopoly,
if he has one. is as yet his own secret.
Mr. Wilson, therefore, has not promised
the people too much, for, specifically, he
has not promised them anything. He is
so balanced as a candidate that as President
he will be able to shift his foot ac- ^
cording to the latest lights on any of
the vital issues of the hour.
The party, or combination, supporting
Mr. Wilson, however, is not so fortunate.
It is committed, in large measure by its
platform, and in equally large measure
by many of its leading stumpers. The
high cost of living has been attributed
to the Payne law; and if the market basket
is not filled Wednesday next at
half the figure required Monday?as
the result of the simple promise of the
law s repeal?many excellent people will
be disappointed. As to the trusts, every
one of them will be expected to raise the
white flag at once, and begin to sue for
terms.
The order is too large by half. No
party or combination could do what Is
now promised under Mr. Wilson's leadership.
Whether constitutional or not,
protection will not, because it cannot, be
uprooted by one or more tariff bills, or
in a generation. And the trusts will tax j
Mr Wilson's intellectuals and will power
far more than even the tarifT.
If a panic threatens as the result of
Tuesday's vote, it will be the duty and
to the interest of men of all parties to
help prevent it. All interests will be involved.
Mr. Wilson feels confident that
no such thing will occur. Let us hope,
however, that his confidence is based
upon something more substantial than
the betting odds in Wall street. In 1S92 '
they were to 1 on Mr. Cleveland, and
yet a panic came. Wall street is at all
times a poor politician, and sometimes is
at sad fault as a seer.
Australian Women and the Law. }
The women of Sydney, Australia, have
started something that may give the government
of that country as much trouble
as the crusades of the suffragettes have
in England. Some time ago an ordinance
was enacted to lessen the danger arising
from the wearing of long hat pins by
women, several accidents having occurred
of a serious nature from this cause.
The other day sixty women werfe arrested
for violating the ordinance, and on
conviction were fined, whereupon they refused
to pay the fines and declared that
they would go to jail before submitting
to the legislation. This is sheer lawlessness
calculated to cause trouble. The
British government is undeniably weak in |
dealing with certain classes of offenders
who have undertaken to defy the laws
and refused to abide by the penalties.
Evidently the same spirit has animated
the women of Sydney, and it remains to
be seen how courageous the government
there will be in its endeavor to make
the statutes and ordinances of equal effectiveness
when applied to all classes
and both sexes.
President Taft's campaign funds have
been remarkable for the degree In which
they reflected personal affection and family
pride rather than political and financial
ambition.
The folk song that Missouri discovered
has been lost from attention, a number
of democrats evidently being of the opinion
that it is better to let sleeping houn'
dawgs lie.
Aviation's future must depend to a considerable
extent on its ability to secure
forgetfulness of a most unfortunate past.
wiison ana a agent.
The republicans of New Jersey are having
fun over the Intimacy that has
sprung up between Mr. Wilson and
James Nugent. Once enemies, they
are now friends. On one occasion Mr.
Wilson ordered Mr. Nugent out of the
governor's office at Trenton, after a heated
discussion about the activity of the
latter in matters of state legislation. As
the result of that. Mr. Nugent in a public
place proposed an insulting toast to
the governor, which he was permitted
to drink alone. It looked like war to the
knife, the knife to the hilt, and for all
ttme.
We should never take such things' too
seriously. Politics?practical politics?calls
for, and produces, many shifts and turns.
The enemies of today may be the friends
of tomorrow. Or the other way. There
are many Instances In point.
Take the case of Mr. Cleveland and
Bourke Cockran. At the Chicago convention
in 1802, in a speech memorable
in convention oratory, Mr. Cockran
begged his brethren not to nominate Mr.
Cleveland. He pronounced him the weakest
man on the list of candidates, and declared
that his nomination would cost
the party the state of New York at the
polls, and therefore the election. It was
an impassioned address, though It failed
of its purpose.
Did this prejudice Mr. Cleveland against
Mr. Cockran? It did not. The democrats
not only carried New York for their
national ticket, but elected a majority
of the legislature. This gave them the
power to choose a successor to Frank
Hiscock. a republican, in the United
States Senate.
The democratic organization of the
state expressed a preference for Edward
Murphy, jr., a rich machine politician,
for the place, but as Mr. Cleveland did
not think the selection suitable he publicly
objected, and surprised the state by
proposing Mr. Cockran. He praised Mr.
Cockran's ability, and declared that his
presence in the Senate would reflect great
credit on the New York democracy. The
Chicago oration was not permitted to
color Mr. Cleveland's opinion in the
slightest. *
In passing, the opinion may be expressed
that if Mr. Cockran had been sent
to the Senate he might not have cut the
didoes that since that time have characterized
his political course. Rooted in
the Senate as a democrat, he would not
have been free to take the stump for
McKlnley in 1S06, and, escaping that
temptation, might have escaped the
others, which have made him a visitor
to all sides, and not a very welcome
one to any.
Shall we see Mr. Nugent in Washington
next spring and later on business for
the good of the order? Why not? As
he and Mr. Wilson have patched up their
differences, why should they not be practical
men for practical party purposes
after March 4? The odds are largely in
favor of such an arrangement.
Commissioners and "Merger."
In directing the corporation counsel to
take such action as may be possible under
the law to check and, if the court
permits, to prevent the consummation of
the so-called merger plan affecting certain
public utilities of Washington,
which have been recently projected under
articles of incorporation obtained in
Richmond, the Commissioners are merely
moving for the protection of the public
interest, obviously hoping to hold the
enterprise nacK until congress can meet
and pass upon It. There can be no question
of the ultimate authority of Congress
to scrutinize financial propositions
which are advanced affecting local utility
corporations. It has the power to prevent
overcapitalization. It can pass and Is
even now contemplating the passage
of a law creating a public utilities commission
In this District, with authority
over the physical management and the
financial administration of all the corporations
which deal with the public
necessities. In these circumstances it Is
obviously the Commissioners' duty to do
whatever they can to prevent the carrying
out of the pending proposition until Congress
has had an opportunity to survey
it with a view to determine Its bearing
upon the future condition of the corporations
with reference to the public
welfare.
It is quite possible that the financial
project of the Maryland-Virginia Company,
or, as it is perhaps soon to be called,
the Washington Utilities Company, is
entirely sound. It may be that every dollar
of the proposed capital stock and
bond issue, aggregating $150,000,000, will
be legitimately needed In financing all the
companies which it is proposed to merge
under a single ownership. But this is
not a matter which is solely the business
of the capitalists who are investing or
the individuals who are managing the
matter. The public Is a direct partner in
any such enterprise. It furnishes all the
patronage from which the profits are
to come, and it supplies the spaces over
and through which the tracks and conduits
of the utilities corporations must go.
It can, through its legislative representatives,
determine, within reasonable
limits, the rates of fare to be charged
ind the kind of service to be renlered
by the companies. Repeatedly
a disposition has been manifested,
however, to ignore this public interest
and right, sometimes by the simple expedient
of overloading the properties
with such heavy fixed charges that it
is impossible to secure through legislation
or otherwise improvements in the
service or reductions in the rates, even
though conditions amply warrant such
changes.
Thus the District Commissioners are
doing: no more than is incumbent upon
them when they take cognizance of the
reported intention of certain corporate
interests to change the capitalization of
local public utilities in a manner to
threaten an overburdening load of fixed
charges almost sure to check improvements
in the service in the near future,
and to prevent rate reductions. They
are fully justified in this course by the
fact that under the proposed public
utilities commission law, the passage of
which may be looked for at the next session
of Congress, such a change in the
capitalization of these local companies
would not be permitted without a close
scrutiny In every detail. The fact that
the commission bill has not passed is no
warrant for a hastening of this enterprise
to get it established before Congress
can act. The Commissioners will
have the support of tne community
in their effort to hold these plans from
execution until Congress has had an opportunity
to examine them.
John D. Rockefeller's new private telephone
system dispenses with an operator.
It is doubtless a marvel of ingenuity,
but it seems rather undesirable for a
man like Mr. Rockefeller to find himself
in a position where there is no one but
himself to blame when the line is busy
or he gets the wrong number.
Gov. Wilson says that in a great nation
no man can do anything by himself,
except talk. And without wishing to be
captious It may be suggested that even
in that endeavor he gets on better if he
has an audience.
Col. Roosevelt can cut his speeches as
short as he likes. The cheering audience
is willing to supply vocal effort sufficient
to occupy most of the evening.

A Dog of Ability.
Without doubt a new member has been
added to the Chicago police force within
the last few hours, an ununiformed member,
but nevertheless a most valuable one.
That is to say, an opportunity presents itself
to the chief of the Chicago police for
an enlistment that will be well worth
while. It is demonstrated by an incident
which is reported in the news dispatches.
The other night a party of detectives

wanted for safeblowing. A stray bulldog
for some unknown reason took it into his
bullet head to trot along after the policemen.
One of the three safeblowers suddenly
gave a twist and broke away and
darted down an alley. Before the policemen
could readjust .to the altered sltua
tion the bulldog started like a flash and
kept the fugitive in sight. The man leaped
on board a passing street car, but the
dog, quite as agile as he. made the platform
close at his heels. The crook
plunged through the car and leaped off
the front platform. The dog followed
him. The thief darted into a railroad
yard and tried to throw the dog off the
trail by climbing through a rreigni train,
but the dog ran under the car and was
ready for him at the other side. Then
the man tried to shoot this canine enemy
and the dog dodged the bullets. Between
the shots and the dog's barking enough
noise was made tb attract the attention
of the police who by this time were hot
on the trail, and they soon arrived and,
the dispatch declares, rescued, not the
dog. but the man. If that dog is not now
attached to police headquarters in Chicago
the municipal authorities of that
city are singularly blind to their duty.
As soon as this election excitement is

SHOOTING STAHS.
BY PHILANDER JOHNSON.
Two Sides.
"There are two sides to every argument,"
said the ready-made philosopher.
"Yes," replied the gloomy person; "but
it makes a difference which side you
choose. There are two sides to a piece
of fly-paper."
The Innocent Bystander.
"Doesn't the story of the' prodigal son
bring tears to your eyes?"
"Yes," replied Farmer Corntossel.
"Every time I hear that story I can't
help sympathizin' with the fatted calf."
Many a story that isn't funny gets
laughed at because there's no use of
hurting the feelings of a man who doesn't
mean any harm.
Instability.
The man who shifts from day to day
Whichever way the breeze may blow
Is sure to get a chance to say
In tones serene, "I told you so."
"Anyhow," said Uncle Eben, "de man
dat alius has an' ax to grind ain' liable
to be as troublesome as de man dat's
alius honin' a razor."
Separate Propositions.
"Bliggins is what I call a loyal and
patriotic man!"
"How does he show it?"
"He is going to vote for a man that
he has bet against."
Compensation.
For the leader of a nation
There's a wonderful elation
When he gets the news of victory complete;
But there's also comfort waiting
For the man who hears them stating
That his efforts have resulted in defeat.
He can be an eight-hour sleeper,
He can sit down to Mb "three per,"
Far distant from the bustle and the roar.
It will not be found essential
To meet people influential
Who hammer with petitions on his door.
He can play the games that please
him,
And indulge the moods that seize him
If he wants to take a trip to foreign
lands.
He can give a cheery greeting
To each friend he may be meeting
And not put in the Whole day shaking
hands.
There is joy in the endeavor
To be powerful or clever;
But when a struggle has been gotten
through
There is surely compensation
In the blissful relaxation
Of the man who hasn't very much to do.
Kipling in Politics.
From the New York Evening Post.
Rudyard Kipling recently made a set
political speech in England?so far as we
know, his tirst performance of that kind?
and one naturally turns to the reading of
it with lively expectation. Now we shall
see what a man of undoubted genius can
do to make cotemporary politics seem
vital. We may not agree with him, for
he is known to be a tory and a tremendous
imperialist, but certainly he will
adorn whatever he touches. He will
show us distinction of manner, uncommon
precision and force of expression,
with here and there gleams of rare insight
and phrases that will stick in the
memory. But alas for our pleasurable
anticipations! Kipling the genius spoke
only as the ordinary ranter of his party
might have done. He merely caught up
the commonplace denunciations of the
liberal party and its policies, and made
them seem a little more cheap and a
shade more vulgar than before. There
was absolutely no intellectual lift in his
speech, no evidence of thought deeper
than the ordinary, no freshness of attack,
no compelling vigor of presentation.
It was only the hackneyed thing
made more so.
Where We Could Economize.

The high cost of living In this country
is an awful burden. T. ank God we have
grit, philosophy and self-denial to bear
It! That we are meeting it with a calm
and fortitude wonderful to behold figures
from the internal revenue bureau
for the quarter ending October 1 bear eloquent
and heartrending testimony. In
those three months of struggle to provide
ourselves with the necessities of life, we
toyed with 3,^00,000,000 cigarettes, 1,000,000,000
more than we got away with in
the same time the year before. We
smoked the record number of 1,050,000,000
cigars. In the same quarter we drank
33,15o,000 gallons of whisky, an increase
of 450,000 gallons over the same period
last year and we drowned the prohibition
party's little ?50,000 campaign contribution
in lit,mo.000 barrels of beer, which is
H'JO.OOO barrels up on last year's score.
These facts only go to snow that if any
pinching and scraping must be done we
know Just how and where to do it. When
we have to take the knife to our expense
account .we do the job like a stoic and
grin at the pain.
The Case of Diaz.
From the St. Louis Times.
It is probable that President Madero
will perceive the folly of insisting upon
the execution of the law in the case of
young Diaz. He is a man of education,
if not of sound character. He is the sort
of man who may best be acted against as
an example. But the practice of making
examples usually works both ways. It
would be easy to make a martyr of him.
And in view of the contemptibly weak
showing he made, it would seem that he
is, after all, not a sufficiently formidable
figure to warrant extreme measures. A
term In a Mexican prison ought to be
punishment enough; and such a disposition
of his case would, doubtless,
strengthen the cause of Madero in the
Mexican popular mind.
