His record is well known. His services in the House were so satis factory he was promoted to the Sen ate; and in the Senate, in a short time, he has become a leader. No body doubts his ability to meet the requirements of the highest office under the government. What Mr. Weeks suggests about his strength at the national conven tion in case of his candidacy is < f moment. Simply as the favorite son ! of Massachusetts lie would command l but limited attention; but as the can didate of Xew England he would ! bulk well. And, thus far. his is the ! only name from that section men- ; tioned for the republican first place.

I Politicians are always suspected. The public is apt to sec something of a political natnrc in every move they make. Thev are supposed to be al ways on the job. Although lie may not meet the democratic leaders of that section of the country on this trip. Mr. Mc Combs should return home well in formed about the situation there. Indianapolis is near.

He has never jonied in the clamor against Tam many. At !ie same time he has remained t??? d terms with the President, and is now persona grata at the White House. It is understood that, with many others, lie regards the ?>resif!cnt s renommation as not only ? ?*t the only intelligent and ? the democracy to ? n; j eril wi!: come, not : tcr the national con * ?:u *t will be then that those atic leaders who have not in ?Jie iirst term enjoyed favor at his an ;s ;:iay want to know how they ii> ? to iare it tliey buckle down and p give Mr. Wilson a second term, ome of them have a good deal of power, and several control machines of the latest style and efficiency, i hat would be but a languid national campaign with Charles F. Murphy, i homas laggart and Koger Sullivan in the dumps. Xot improbably, the republicans would have a walkaway. The democratic bosses were all in line three years ago. notwithstand ing the "wooling*' several had re ceived at Baltimore, arid all must be in line again if Mr. Wilson is to have the slightest chance to succeed him self. I Jitney Routes. Corporation Counsel Syme in his > report to the District Commissioners | on his observations on jitney bus services in other cities expresses the j belief that these supplementary j transports can be maintained prolit ably only when the operators are permitted to choose their own routes and to be their own judges of the services they shall render. He says: The moment an attempt is made ! to hold the jitney to a prescribed route and compel it to perform a ; proscribed service tor a considerable number of hours it ceases to be a profit-making operation. The dead mileage will quickly consume the profit.' It is not clear just how a satis factory service can be rendered to the public by dciachvi vehicles op crating on unstable routes at the ! judgment of the drivers. Certainly j ihe people who require to be car ried a-* quickl v as possible from point to point regularly must know where they can lake these vehicles i and where thev are going to lie transported. A "cruising" jilney be- 1 comes merely a cheap competitor ot the taxicab. with the difference thai the patron (aiiiiot direct his route i whereas the user 01 ti,e taxicab can command the shortest possible j Transport to his destination. Doubt- j less in the cities where this system has been developed the jitneys vvijrk along certain routes during certain hours and shift to other routes a; other hours. But haphazard bus running through the streets is hard ly calculated to appeal to the travel ing publii. Having described Germany as aa unprecedented menace, h'on Watson should find some consideration tn Berlin as a literary person of sonic perspicacity As examples of neutrality tiie Es kimos stand pre-eminent. They have not even taker, sides in the Cook l'eary controversy. Japan has no hesitation in letting it be understood that the present flurry with China is no Turtle bay episode. The technicalities involved even in a iibel suit make it difficult to utilize a court record as a campaign docu ment. The example of Russia may con vince China that it is time for coun tries of enormous area to wake up. A Touch of Militancy. | Philadelphia suffragists who waited I at the White House during three I days to see the President in order to urge him in person to speak to a delegation on the occasion of his visit to their city next Monday gave a demonstration of mild American militancy that is not calculated to aid the cause of political equality for women. The President's position on the silbject of suffrage has been clearly made known on more than one occasion. It is plain that he does not intend by his voice to aid this cause. Regardless of the merits of the question, he has put himself so definitely on record in respect to own part in the present move nit that it is idle to press bin rther. In this particular case finite answer was given to th ? nladelphia delegation to the effect ?tat the President would be unabh to accedc to their request. To insist upon smug liim in person savored j J of a sirgc such as those that char-j ! acteri/cd the English agitation of a ! 5 short time ago. before the great war | put an end to suffrage militancy in S that country. Woman suffrage is a progressing cause here, and its ulti- j mate triumph cannot be questioned, j j whether it conies in the near future j or at a more distant day. The prcs- j ! etit progression toward success will j ? not be hastened by tactics such as ! those manifested yesterday at the ; I \\ hite 1 louse. A Money Tunnel. While it is suggested that the pro jected iuating and lighting tunnel from the central plant at 14t 11 and i Water streets may be utilized to j carry currency from the engraving 'bureau to the Treasury, for purposes of greater safety, it is to be borne in mind that the government has never suffered a loss in the handling of its j securities in transit from the money ( factory to the strong boxes. An ex cellent system has been evolved; whereby misplacement or theft is: virtually impossible. Washington is familiar with the sight of'thc "money wagon" passing back and forth be tween the engraving bureau and the -Treasury, and perhaps imaginative persons have at times speculated on the possibility of a raid upon it by a gang of desperadoes, but it has al ways been realized that the chances j of success in a venture of this sort i would be so slight as to discourage any such effort. The products of the j engraving bureau are checked to the last penny daily, and in the transit to the Treasury there is never any slackness of precaution. The tunnel 1 method might be speedier, and j doubtless it is a good plan to take | advantage of the already projected subway to bring the Treasury and | its money mill into closer conncc j tion. Rumors that Huerta is interesting himself in a project to finance a new ; demonstration fail to credit the for- j mer chief with the ability to let well j enough alone. j j Dr. Cook saj'S he intends to climb i Mount Everest this summer. Den | mark is not weaving any rose j wreaths to celebrate the achieve- j I ment. . Estimates of the enormous cost of war have not included calculations of the indemnities that may be required j for the destruction of American j ships. Japan may feel compelled to send regrets to the allies with the explana tion that she has a war on hand in her own immediate neighborhood. The deliberation with which Italy approaches war cannot reasonably be ascribed to fear of another ringing denunciation by the kaiser. William H. Taft refuses to take his presidential boom with a seriousness j that might impair his prestige as a | good loser. The discussion of bosses at Syra ! cu>e it as shown a tendency to hall i mildly at the "you're another" stage. A neutral ship does not enjoy anv | thing like the advantages of an in terned ship. . , Drought news has been unusually early in getting into action this year. SHOOTING STARS. B\ I'H I LA NT>RR JOHNSON. An Appreciative Listener. "Henrietta.- said Mr. Meekton. ! "that was a wonderfully appealing and persuasive spet-ch you made." "The audience seemed to like it." "Yes. And I was proud to be one of j | the audience. It's the first time that j you have talked in that confidential j and respectful tone to me in years." j I "Dey say politeness don't cost nuttin'," said L'ncle Hben. "But dc waiter dat understand his business 'bout pcrsuadin' t:ps knows better." The Literary Farmer. The bulletins keep coming out. Their teachings oft amaze.

So's to bring it around gradual, the judge has made a rule that any man who draws a gun on another will have to quit drinking. You'd be surprised to see how nice and orderly the old place is gettin' to be." Self-Sympathetic. "T suppose you are what they call a political boss." "I suppose so," replied Senator Sorghum, wearily. "As 1 understand the term, a political boss is a man who has to do the hard work, the hard thinking and take all the blame for anything that goes wrong.' Unappreciation.
