I^Tn order to arold delars on account of personal absenep letters to THE STAR should ?of l>e address*^ to any Individual connected rnth the offi.'c. but nlmply to THE STAR, or to ?hr Editorial or Business Department, according to tenor or purpose Mr, Wilson and 1916. The latest speculation about is based on a report that the President is tiring of his office. and has ir view car rying out a program which will enable him to name his successor. As the story goes. if he can write on the books such measures as remain on his card he will be satisfied with one term and be ready to retire when the time comes. We are told that this would make a record in American politics. It would, rind likewise a record in human nature. Hitherto speculation about Mr. Wilson and 1911> had run on a very simple line. Which was that if Mr. Wilson succeeded in writing his policies into laws, and those laws proved acceptable and bene ficial to the country, he would be re elected. Otherwise; if Iris program failed in Congress, or written into laws failed in operation, he would have to meet as a candidate the defeat he had invited. Another item of this new speculation relates to where Mr. Wilson's choice will fall if matters so shape themselves he is able to name the next democratic candidate. A numtter of men are men tioned?some associable with a presiden tial nomination, others outside of a rea sonable reckoning?but Mr. Bryan is blacklisted. The reason given is not persuasive. De spite all reports to the contrary, the re lations between Mr. Bryan and his chief seem to be of the closest and most cor dial character. They have been working together harmoniously, and each has pub licly complimented the other in the highest terms. Why if Mr. Wilson should be able to name the democratic candi date for 1916 should his choice not fall on the man who named him at Baltimore two years ago? Whether Mr. Bryan could be elected President is another matter. He has been defeated for the office three times, and as a result there is what may be called an anti-Bryan factioiFin the party, thought to be dead set against him. This of course would be represented to Mr. Wil son, but Mr. Bryan's friends might reply by saying that Mr. Wilson's strength would be sufficient to bring ever body into j line. It is a good hot weather topic, although the times are by no means dull. But can we seriously think of Mr. Wil son taking himself out of the equation if he scores? If the situation improves; if the new laws begin to justify themselves and times are flush; if the mills' reopen and the present army of the unemployed are on pay rolls again, will not Mr. Wilson be the most powerful and im pressive figure in the country? Would any man in such circumstances decline a new commission? Would his party per mit him to decline? Mr. Wilson may be having moments of depression, and even disgust. He may be disillusioned about some men and some things. That sort of experience inheres in the presidency. But that he is figur ing on retreat and private life again at a time when his legislative program is not half finished is an attack on his staying quality. A Showery Season. For nearly a fortnight Washington has been experiencing a series of showers, which, however gratifying as a means of bringing relief from the heat, have nevertheless caused considerable anxiety as well as much inconvenience to pleas ure-seekers. These rains have been ac companied in almost all cases by high winds and severe electrical discharges, and considerable damage has been done, especially by the storm of last night, which centered chiefly in the regions south of the city. An immense quantity of water has fallen in the course of these showers and storms, but most of it has run off quickly owing to the violence of the downpour. Still the country, which had suffered somewhat from lack of rain, is on the whole benefited by these visitations. The moon is now entering a new stage, and it is possible that a change is at hand. It would be ideal if these summer rains could fall always between midnight and dawn, to give the necessary soaking to the soil without in terfering with the outdoor diversions of the people. Nature, however, has but little regard for pleasure schedules of humanity, and often seems to take a per verse delight in sending showers just in time to catch picnic parties, excursions and spectators at outdoor games when they are unprepared. The member of Congress who is so licitous as to how bachelor colleagues spend their evenings will probably find that, like the married men, they put in all their spare time writing home and trying to explain things to their con stituents. Georgia has a "pie eaters' club." There must be some way of marking time be tween watermelon seasons. At Sagamore Hill. Mr. Roosevelt has decided to close his ?ates on the merely curious. Hereafter he will receive at his residence only those whom he wishes to see and has Invited. Tills is wise; and the wonder is that the step was not taken long ago. A man of Mr. Roosevelt's position and popularity and activity attracts a great variety of persons. The press toward him is heavy. ? 'ranks touch shoulders with men of sub stance and sober thought. Giddypates with fantastic notions are even more eager to reach his ear and consume his time than leaders in affairs whose views are worthy considering. He will do the right thing by himself and his friends, therefore, in separating the chaff from the wheat. Time is money. Patience should never be overtaxed. If a man has leisure and no great responsibility he can afford if the humor seizes him to entertain idlers and runabouts. Political leaders have no monopoly of this sort of annoyance. Celebrities of all kinds are laid under tribute. Even closet philosophers have been known to groan under the burden. One uf the mos; interesting stories oI halph T'aldo Emerson related to the queer collection of human beings finding the way to Concord and submitting all sorts of suggestions to the sage. The great light of transcendentalism attracted many men of many minds; and his broad sympathies, sweetness of temper and in finite patience' made him the victim of many impositions. " Undoubtedly he v. asted much valuable time listening to those with no ideas of value to submit. For several years Mr. Roosevelt at Sagamore Hill has had something of the Emersonian experience at Concord. He has attracted a great variety of persons with a great variety of plans for saving the country, and has listened to all with much patience. A small army of news paper df?rrespondents has camped near, so as to chronicle the arrivals and de- j partures of visitors. Many were uninter esting to the public, but some were of consequence, and their appearance on the scene was worth newspaper space. At that time Mr. Roosevelt was not only all alive intellectually, but in the pink of condition physically. To use his own phrase, he was as strong as a bull moose. Processions of admirers and con suiters could not exhaust his resources. But he is not so strong now. The South American jungle did what the South Af rican jungle failed to do. It conquered, temporarily at least, a frame that had hitherto defied all the trials of outdoor life, and sent the distinguished traveler home considerably the worse for the en counter. It made him pay for the secrets he insisted on securing, and his physician tells him he must cut out some of the strenuoslty which has made him famous as politician, hunter, ranchman and ex plorer. His balance in bank is not as large as formerly, and he must draw against it with carc. Another Hapsburg Tragedy. A? tragedies occur In the life of Em peror Francis Joseph of Austria-Hungary that venerable monarch appears as the unhappiest man of modern times. Vir tually from the beginning of his reign at the age of eighteen, sixty-six years ago. he has been pursued by a malign fate. Death and disaster and disgrace have reached those near to him. his brother, his sons, his wife, his grand children: scarcely a member of his fam ily has escaped -some measure of the mis fortune which, it is believed in Austria, was brought upon the Hapsburgs by the curse of the Countess Karolyi when her young son was executed because of his participation in an uprising of the Hun garians early in the career of the young ruler of the dual monarchy. It is a singular fact that although death has struck all around him, the emperor himself has survived scathless. Now he remains, at the age of eighty four, alone, feeblet heartbroken, dis trustful of everybody; harassed by pres ent conditions in his realm and assured by every possible portent of grave dis turbance in the monarchy after his death. Thirteen rulers have been assassinated 6ince he ascended the throne, and many prime ministers and royal consorts and heirs. His own life has been attempted, but he has seemed to bear a charmed life. Doubtless he has often wished for a surer aim on the part of his would-be slayers, prayed for death to come to him while it was striking those about him. The slaying of the Archduke Ferdinand and his wife is politically important as a sign of the sad condition in the Austro Hungarian realm and its subordinate and associated countries. The men who at tempted the life of the heir to the throne, one successfully, were Servians, but they were animated, it is believed, by motives that are felt by many who are directly under the rule of the dual monarchy. The crime is a portent of the seething of discontent felt in all parts of the em pire, an index of the insecurity of affairs in the Balkan region. It is traced already to the action of Austria in contriving the annexation of Bosnia-Herzegovina a short time ago, a stroke which was largely at tributable to the desire of the now slain archduke to enlarge the empire's boundaries. Owing to the fact that in order to gain his uncle's consent to his morganatic marriage Archduke Ferdinand was com pelled to renounce the right of succes sion for his children, the heirship to the Austrian throne now passes to the slain heir's nephew, now in his twenty-seventh year. He appears to be a young man of excellent parts, in all respects a suit able candidate for the throne. But it is by no means certain that the crown will rest long upon his head, for it is the general belief in Europe that the death of Francis Joseph will be the signal of a disturbance perhaps causing the dis ruption of the dual monarchy. The ele ments of scission have ben active lor years, and with the serious unrest that prevails in the Balkans it will be surpris ing if the death of the aged emperor is not immediately followed by the gravest troubles. It will be, of course, to Ger many's interests to prevent the collapse of the dual monarchy and to maintain conditions as at present, but for some time there have been indications that Germany would not have in such event a free hand of intervention, for Russia is known to favor the aspirations of Hun gary for a more distinctly national exist ence than that it has had for many years. Report has .it that President Wilson re sents the manner in which the phrase "psychological depression"' is employed. One of ihe penalties of being President is the responsibility of contributing epi grammatic remarks to be used as ready made conversation. ? 1 As something of a woodsman Gifford Pinchot evidently has a certain admira tion for the old-fashioned hero who would grab his gun and bowie knife and offer to fight three or four people at once. There is danger that the candidacy for Governor of New York will be regarded as something to be handed one whom the bosses regard as a bad boy in politics. Eminent progressives are inclined to think that the question of getting people out of the party is not so important as that of bringing people into it. In order to make the Fourth of July perfectly safe and sane, all orators of the day will be requested to think before they speak. Japan will not experience the real trials of civilization until it develops some militant suffragettes and some soap-box orators. Fog, Rock and Wreck. An unprecedented succession of marine | disasters will mark the record of the | year 1914 if the present rate of mishaps | at sea is continued. With the exception. I however, of the loss of the steamer Em ' press of Ireland, few lives have been lost j as a result of these misfortunes, which I plainly indicate either a strange lack ' of carefulness in the management, of j ocean-going ships or an inexplicable run of ill fortune. The latest vessel to come to grief at sea is the California, which rammed her nose upon the rocks off the coast of Donegal, Ireland, in a dense fog. At latest reports no lives were lost and there was every prospect that the ship's company would be safely landed. Fog has caused most of the trouble at sea this > car. being the direct factor of dis aster in the case of the Empress of Ire land and leading to practically all the I minor mishaps subsequently reported. It is difficult-to understand how these fog collisions and stran dings can con tinue so persistently if the rules of safe navigation are being scrupulously ob served. In the case of the California there would seem to be little reason for going ashore if the position of the vessel were approximately known. Practically all dangerously exposed rocks are fitted with warning signals. Of course, there are many that have no lights or other signals. hut these are known and are always given a wide berth by careful navigators. Of course, in times of storm there is no assurance of safety in the vicinity of a coast, but in calm weather, even in fog, a vessel can be kept clear of danger unless she is off her course, with ignorance as to her real position. When it is known that she is off her course and fog prevails it is the duty of her commander to proceed with the utmost caution. Another investigation is demanded as a result of the California's mishap. It will be perhaps an inconclusive inquiry, as are so many of these investigations of marine disasters, but it may serve to emphasize the necessity of greater care in naviga tion in dangerous conditions. Incidentally it may be suggested that the British gov ernment should take cognizance of this stranding and place signals on Tory Island that will leave no possible excuse hereafter for any vessel going ashore there save in great stress of weather. It is reported that John D. Rocke feller finds his greatest pleasure in sitting down and listening to organ re citals. This rumor is a disappointment. It was thought that Mr. Rockefeller's sympathy with the masses would lead him to step out and tango when the music plays. As the H. B. Claflin assets are caleu- j lated. the company's failure was due to the fact that a prosperity which un doubtedly existed was not quite in reach for practical purposes. The purchase of a magnificent bath tub must be construed as evidence of hopes for a more peaceful mode of ex istence. While courteously disposed toward the United States in general, Japan in sists on having its opinion of the Cali fornia legislature. His utterances indicate that of late "the Colonel" has been more frequently surprised than "deelighted." West Virginia finds itself compelled to go dry just at a season when the mint is most luxuriant. SHOOTING STABS. BY PHILANDER JOHNSON. Words of Cheer. "Won't you join our sunshine society?" asked the kindly stranger. "No," replied the man from the moun tains. "We take sunshine as a matter of course. But if you can show us any new ideas about moonshine we might lis ten with interest." Another form of optimism is the belief that the seeds you plant are going to grow up to look exactly like the fancy pictures on the envelope. An Eye to Effect. "You seem very much interested in the menu card?" "i am," replied Mr. Kollums. "Does the food appeal to you?" "No. It's the literary style. Outside of regular poetry that's the best typo- | graphical arrangement for killing off space that I have seen yet." Boldness. A woman's courage is supreme. Each summer proves what they will dare. Except for bravery extreme Such curious clothes they could not wear. Weary of Terpsichore. "Do you like Wagner?" "Better than I used to," replied Mr. Cumrox. "There's a lot of his music that no one would attempt to dance to." Technical Terms. "You must pardon me!" exclaimed the golfer. "The trouble is that I have been so perplexed about naval matters that I got confused." "What's that got to do with the game?" "You didn't hear my warning. I said 'Aft!' when I should have said 'Fore!' " The Kicker. The kicker! Oh, the kicker". 'Tis his mission to complain. He kicks about the sunshine and he kicks about the rain; He scorns the humble person and he dis approves the proud; He isn't fond of solitude and he dislikes a crowd. In winter he wants summer and in sum mer he wants snow. The pace the workl is going seems too fast or else too slow. He sneers at honest laughter; he disdains the simple song; He is absolutely certain everything is go ing wrong. The kicker! Oh, the kicker! Have you' met him on the way? He raises such a dust that all the world seems dull and gray. Instead of getting onward on the road he should pursue. He stops and does a war dance till he's weary, vexed and blue. Here's to the man who pauses to point out the proper path. And lets his warning foice reverberate with righteous wrath! But the kicker! Oh, the kicker! As his days go drifting by. His life's a penny ante game in which he's always shy! Mr. Eoosevelt's Bad Health. Frqfh the New York Times. It is not agreeable news for any American citizen worthy of his citi zenship that Mr. Roosevelt is suffer ing from the after effects of the fever he caught while exploring in the Ama zon country. He is still, properly speaking, a young man. and there is a great deal of vigorous employment ready at his hand. That his physician cautions rest and an avoidance of ex citement is not only discouraging to Mr. Roosevelt but is disappointing to all his fellow-citizens. However, the fact that his physician has thus in terfered with the plans he had made for an arduous campaign has been made public, and there will be a gen eral disposition to hope that the pa tient will obey the doctor as faithfully as his impetuous nature will permit him to. Where Are the Flies ? Prom the Dayton News. Has fly-swatting actually resulted in a partial abolition of the fly? Much to the mortification of those individuals who mocked at swatting. It actually begins to look as if the swatters knew what they were about.
