again of Mr. Clark ami Mr. Bryan
!t will work for party good, as well a
for the |>resent comfort of many proml
lorit party leaders. Each man has man;
admirers and warm friends, and sine
the Baltimore convention some angry con
troversies have occurred as the result o
Mr. Bryan's part there in the defeat o
Mr. Clark. But now that the two mei
themselves have shaken hands again
their respective champions can afford t
imitate them, and many probably will di
so. The war is over.
The charge that Mr. Clark was. in ef
feet, the candidate at Baltimore of "th
interests" would have fallen flat excep
that it was made at a tense moment o
a tense situation. A national conventioi
was rocking with excitement, and evei
passion. The cry that "the interests'
were seeking to control the body brough
a climax, and Mr. Clark was the victim
Mr. Clark was not. of course, the candi
date of "the interests." No candidacj
before the convention was in reality free
from such a tiling than his. The Speake
was standing upon a record entirely cleai
and progressive. But in "the tumult ant
tiie shouting" the charge stuck, and Mr
Clark went down.
A humorous aftermath was the activity
in the campaign before the people in be
half of Mr. Wilson of some of the ver;
men who had been denounced in the con
vention as supporters of Mr. Clark. A1
returned home unruffled by their Balti
more experience, and bestirred them
selves for the ticket. Leader Murphy o
Tammany Hall never worked harder ii
his life.
Might not some prominent republican:
copy with profit to their party this spiri
shown by Mr. Clark and Mr. Bryan
Charges about "the interests" have beei
freely bandied on that side. Men with a:
clean and progressive records as Mr
Clark's have been accused of tendernes:
for "the interests." and practically of be
ing mere tools. Some have suffered ir
their political fortunes as the result.
As a matter of fact, "the interests" a;
a bugaboo have been greatly overworked
They exist, and are "out" for all the}
can get. But they have never con
trolled a national convention, or a Con
gross, and have never dictated decision:
from the bench Their power in politica
affairs has always been magnified b}
rhetoricians employing their art for tern
porary advantage. When in straits
"soak" "the interests."
Mr. Clark and Mr. Bryan may not bi
in consultation often about party mat
ters. The State Department counsels witl
Congress when at all through the Presi
dent. But had the Speaker and the Sec
retarv of State continued at outs theii
party might have suffered somewhat a:
the result.
Close of Clean-Up Week.
The citizens of Washington have responded
admirably to the call for a geneiai
c'eaning. and undoubtedly the capital
is in better condition front the health
point of view today than it was a week
ago and probably better than it was a
year ago. An immense amount of dirl
and trash of all kinds has been removed
fioni domestic and business premises and
carted to the public dumps. Every plact
that has been cleaned is a health centei
rather than a potential disease center
1'r.eounted millions of flies that might
have been bred in this trash have beeE
Now that Washington has been mad?
clean, let it b?* kept clean. The fight ii
only begun when the city has beer
scoured by means of concentrated effort
which may serve to show the way t<
keep the premises in good order. As
lias been often urged, cleanliness in t
habit. It should not be the result 01
- pas n iodic endeavor. It should be th<
boast of every householder that his placi
in kept In order scrupulously throughoir
the year.
l*'rom now on every householder cat
keep his premises in good order with i
slight effort. If he will acquaint himsel
with the routine of trash collection it
his neighborhood he can insure a ays
tematic removal of all refuse from hi:
own place. .Should the city wagons fai
to call he has but to notify the superin
u ndent of street ( leaning to insure mor<
faithful service thenceforth. It is hi:
duty to keep the trash wagons properl]
at work in this matter.
The star proposes to enter into anothe
campaign of fly prevention immediately
the details of which have not yet beei
worked out fully, it is hoped by mean:
of thin new crusade of city sanitation t<
bring Washington considerably nearer thi
ideal of the flyless city, and The Star be
l.eves that with the experience of th
past two years as a basis for work an
with the co-operation of all the peoph
whose interest it is to lend a hand in thi
endeavor, the National Capital will be
?i>me the cleanest and the most healthfi
. ity in the I'nited States.

The Democracy's Large Order.

Is large. It concerns itself with policie
' of long standing. For sixteen vears th
republicans have liarl full control. The
~ began by revising the tariff. Then the
t took over the Philippines. Then the
began a vigorous execution of the Shei
- man anti-trust law. Then conservatio
f became an issue, and they took a stan
J on that. While they did not reform th
o currency, they gave the subject atter
* tion, and left a report behind which ma
figure in the debate when the democrat

To dispose of these questions satisfac
torily the democrats must be united. The
e could stand a division in the House, bt
not one in the Senate. In the latte
body their majority is small, and it
leadership is new and Inexperienced. Th
work now in hand, therefore, is of th
v highest importance to the party respori
sible, for if the party stumbles it ma

The Bull Moosers.
o The bull moosers will continue in busi
0 ness. They again denounce the two ol
parties. Neither possesses the element
- of true progress. In the bull moose part
e alone are those elements to be found. Th
t doors are open for recruits, and every
f body is invited.
1 This announcement may or may not b
i important. Undoubtedly there are men i
' the bull moose party who are much ii
t earnest in an unselfish way, and hav
i. capacity as agitators and organizer."
- They made a remarkable showing las
" year in a short time, and succeeded ii
r their main purpose?the defeat of Mi
r Taft?and that result is at the base o
i their present program. They believe tha
3 with a longer efTort and thorough or
. ganizatioh they can control the country
Their calculations include two impor
i- tant propositions: (1) as they read th
. times, the fighting spirit of the republi
y cans is hopelessly broken, "and (2) th
. democratic party will fall in office.
1 They may be wrong about both. Th
. republicans here and there are growini
. a little perky. They- have not gone t
f pieces anywhere. Although very mucl
, disfigured, they are still in the ring. Ii
Congress they are well led. Mr. Mam
s in the House, and Mr. Root and Mi
t Lodge in the Senate, should fully improv
wjiatever opportunities may presen
^ themselves at this session and the next
The democrats are making an heror
effort to hold together, and redeem thel
campaign promises. In the House the:
are strong in leadership. Both th
j Speaker and Mr. Underwood are work
ing together for a definite purpose, am
are veteran legislators. At present Mr
Wilson is advising with them about th*
" matters in hand.
The bull moosers are hoping for an*
banking on disaster. If everything goe
" to pieces, they have in mind building *
J raft out of two wrecks, and finding offic
in that way.
But they are facing a money problem o
large dimensions. They were not pauper
' last year, but it is probably true that a
times they were a little skimped. Not
i their needs are, and for four years wil
continue, very great. Political organize
1 tions in a country of this size call for i
heavy outlay in an entirely legltimat
way. Club wxirk, literature, hall rents
L traveling expenses, all mount up to i
' big figure.

e For Millionaire With Imagination. |
From the New York World. X
e It is said that a wealthy resident of ?!
g New York may presently give the city <
0 .$:i,000,um) worth of land suitable for y
. children's playgrounds. It would be a y
civic blessing. There are in New York y
tl almost a million children between five ?
a and fourteen years of age. Private gen- X
. erosity provides playgrounds for some of i.
e them; public foresight accommodates a X
few: fortunate ones in the outer wards X
II can do fairly well in fields or vacant lots. A
But it Is doubtful if one-third of the A
c whole number have a decent place to y
r play. Yet piay is childhood's law of y
mental and physical growth, and the y
street, with its constantly growing traf- y
e fic, is impossible. Perhaps if Mr. Car- ?
- negle had given playgrounds to New York
1 instead of libraries he would have con- ?
ferred an evert greater boon upon his 5,
generation. For very shame the city ^
e would soon have had to provide itself
with a more complete library system, and *
i it shows no haste in acting for the other.
s wider, simpler need of youth. To make
' two-thirds of a million children grateful JT^

i Japan and California.
- From the New York Times.
a Japan has many demagogues and
e many yellow newspapers. Sometimes in ;
i, that country a reckless yellow newspaper
' is owned and edited by a reckless demagogue.
and some of her demagogues are
more reckless, some of her newspapers
? more yellow, than any examples we could :!
t supply for a competitive exhibition. The j;
g wild agitators and wild, irresponsible ;i
newspapers of Japan are stirring the t
lower class of the people into a passion
f over the anti-Japanese bills now pending j
- in the California legislature. The excite.
ment, according to dispatches, is Intense. ;
The measure in which the Japanese agitators
succeed in arousing popular pase
sion will be the measure in which public
sympathy in this country will incline to
turn in favor of California and against ?
the Japanese demand, which, if prel*
sented in a reasonable way, would be re
- ceived with the greatest respect and con- ?
i- sideratlon in this country. The question "Z
e at issue is one which may be settled
without the slightest disturbance of the ?
friendly relations between Japan and the
United States by the orderly process of
the courts and of diplomacy.

^ From the Chicago Journal.
Clear the sidewalks by all means, but
do not forget the space over the sidewalks.
That is sadly in need of a cleanup,
too. Cluttered sidewalks are a nui1
sance, but they bring their own remedy,
s They obstruct traffic, and provoke prompt
remonstrances from people who are being
held back from their work. The overhanging
sign works more subtly. It ob
structs nothing?but light, air. beauty,

pays heavy graft into a monopoly's
treasury, and turns the city's streets into
thoroughfares of ugliness. In starting to
clean up streets, do not forget the overhanging
The Prevailing Distemper.
From the St. Fsul Dispatrh.
s Minnesota is no better and no worse
than many other states in the disposition
of its legislators. Most of them think
they must be politicians first and statesmen
afterward. But they are so anxious
to be politicians that they seldom arrive
at the stage of statesmanship.
Popular Passion.
(r From i he New York Tribune. is
e Americans are too accustomed to occa- ?
sional fits of hysteria at home to be overcensorious
of the unreasoning ebullitions _
