Republican newspapers and politicians -arc ex hibiting a degree of exultation over "harmony In Iowa" and are offering the results of Hie late Hawteyc convention as the best evidence of the death of rcUsion sentiment -within the party. It was to have been expected that the utmost use would be made of such results, since Iowa was the great seat of revision disturbance and the Roosevelt machine concentrated thereon its efforts for many lnonrlis. The facts connected with the successful "eradication" of the Iowa idea may be consulted as bearing upon the quality of the much-vaunted har mony now prevailing. To put Governor Cummins out of it was the aim of the machine. He had been guilty of the un pardonable feln of expiessing mild and obvious truths to the effect that President McKinley was wholly right in thinking the time had come for tariff -moderation in the directon of reciprocity. These views, though mild, he uttered as loudly as evef a young Roosevelt proclaimed that he would die for free trade, in days ago. And he expressed other views, concerning revision as a remedy for trust evils. And pursuant to the icws of Cum mins, who stumped the State with them, the Iowans framed up tentatively einie declarations In favor , of revising the tariff whenever it should be dis covered that it sheltered a monopoly. Mr, Roosevelt, with the party's welfare close t his heart, dispatched Mr. George Roberts to the scene, the latter being Director of the Mint and also an Iowan, a practical politician and the owner ot two Iowa newspapers. This good man operated so potently that Cummins and his followers com promised, saying that they would not advocate too strongly any measure which might embarrass Mr. Roosevelt in the campaign. Despite his promises Governor Cummins was re garded as dangerous. Although he had always been an enthusiastic Roosevelt. supporter he was discarded In fuvor of n Mr. Blythe, who Is said to have acted in Iowa as the principal agent of the Roosevelt opposition for as long a time as theie" was any possible chance of damaging the President's cause. To Mr. BIythe's remarkable activity for Roosevelt, however, Is attributed the fact that Gov ernor Cummins was virtually whipped out of the convention for a time. Wythe built up a momen tary majority, and it required all the efforts of Seni tor Allison and his brother leaders to allay tumult and finally achieve the reconciliation which resulted in the naming of Cummins as one of the delegates at large to the National Convention. Of such is Iowa harmony. It cannot be said to represent the state of the popular mind In Iowa any more than can the ma chine conventions elsewhere wldch are made up of officeholders nud Roosevelt appointees be said to . Interpret the tariff sentiments of the Republican rank and tile. Governor Cumniln!?s views, from the Jtepubllcnn standpoint, nre sensible and progressive, rrom any standpoint they are preferable to absolute standpatism and machine despotism. Two years ago the, machine irself. having the congressional election In mind, expressed like views for the sake of policy. A eane and progressive tariff policy uitist-'be adopted in 'reality by the Republican party to pre vent the desertion of those large, numbers "ot the rauk and file everywhere which adhere to the Iowa idea. Such a policy will not be avmvedtlils year. But, irrespective of victory or defeat in the ,com,lng election, the strength of revision sentiment must boon force real recognition by the machine and ex r prcsBlon In the party's action. A. conservative Re publican organ declares that unless a -revision policy is adouted In the interim the party iwill eureIy-go I down to overwhelming and humiliating defeat at the congressional elections two years hence. Why post pond the disaster two years? the question logically arises. May not a disappointed and deceived Re publican rank and file be depended upon to act this year precisely as it would act in two years under the same conditions? . JUDICIAL IMPERIALISM. In the case of Dorr and O'Erien, editors con victed of libel In the Philippines, who demanded a jury, which was refused, and thereupon appealed to the Supreme Court of the United States, that court has decided by a vote of five to four that the refusal of the jury trial to the defendants was proper. Jus tice Day, delivering the opinion of the majority, ex plained Out the Government of the Philippines had been expressly left by the treaty of Paris in the hands of Congress, and that Congress, because of the incapacity of the island people, had puiposely withheld the right of trial by jury. Justice Harlan, dissenting, held Uiat the Philippines ate a part of the United States, and that the Constitution ex- 'tends to the Islands, and that the lLrht of trial by jury is fundamental and necessarily extends to any place owned by this country. But the majority rules: and thus we may le said to be operating in the Philippines upon a plan of benevolent assimi lation without right of trial by jury. And the Con stitution may be said to follow the flag only In so far as It does not conflict with a strict policy of im perialism. The Philippines, we may deduce, aio to be our colonics In the Historical sense which is to say, for revenue only. But one cannot help respectfully questioning the logic of the majority decision. Why go back only to the treaty of Paris for justification? Prior to our grabbing the Philippines there were not even United States courts in the Islands, and the Constitution, much less Congress, had never been heard of. It is true that we took the islands for the stated pur pose of civilizing them "in the interests of civiliza tion." They were mere colonial possessions of Spain and we thought, at least so the administration ex plained, that we owed it to them and to humanity at large to take them and try to make something bet ter of them. It may be asserted that trial by jury is a vital acc,ompanIment of that form of govern ment which we think best adapted to the purposes of Christianity and civilization. But since we deny that right to the Filipinos why base the denial on the treaty of Paris? Why not simply excuse ourselves by saying thar at any rate the Philippines are no worse off now than they wero when wo grabbed them? That js Uie point which. In connection with our denial of the right to a Jury trial as r. right, will interest the rest of the world. To be sure that is an evasion, but it Is about the only thing left for us in reply to the charge that we have violated the alleged spirit Ir which we took the Islands. Is the treaty of Paris to be taken as the con stitution of the Filipinos? Then, upon the seem ing theory of the Supreme Court in this case, the Filipinos cannot have anything except as enumerat ed specifically in the treaty. And, by the same nil', we may do what we please to the Philippines ex cept Oiose things which we may have specifically promised not to do. Preferably to putting ourselves upon the treaty of Paris, we might excuse our denial of the right of trial by Jury on the ground that Admiral Dew ej did not have that In mind when he committed the seizuie. The Intent with which things are done goes a long way in the law. In Ome to come we may actually flud ourselves harking back to what. Dewey had In mind. This will be a most con venient recourse far better than the treaty of Paris for an Imperialistic nation. The time will prob ably come when the world slull have forgotten what we said when we took on the Philippine colonies about doing it for their own good. Then we can disabuse Oie Filipinos minds about habeas corpus, for Instance. We can tar them without representation. We can 'stamp-tax liiqin. Wo can even make them buy our tea. We can quarter our imperialistic troops upon, them. We can curtail their freedom of speech) and throw them into jail for libel and even refuse them a trial by Jurj.- And all because Admiral Dewey had nothing to the con-traij- in mind. And the other Powers won't care, provided that we have plenty of warships to enforce our judicial notions. Meanwhile the judiciary seems to be creating a very pleasant imperialistic atmosphere about our strenuous nnd ambitious administration. We seem to have not only a President and a Congress but a Supreme Court admirably suited to the ends of empire. ' . t .. er Mr. Roosevelt continues In Oils mind now In the dajfi of world-difficulty In tho Orient which offers every possibility for the spirit-militant. Might we fear that he pants for participation over there, like a Duplclx or a Olive? Does he gaze toward the Eastern horizon with a yearning to play ajiart worth! plaj Ing? If so, he will have Oio opportunity as Pres ident. With uncalled-for haste and what appeared to be unrestrained eagerness- the Roosevelt administra tion needlessly, Uirust this country into the initiative to Insist upon. International preserraUon of China's integrity. Mr. Roosevelt In Oio field of Oriental dis turbance is already armed with an explosive policy of imperialism and he has "the courage to be great" ami is moreover quick on tho trigger. In these cir cumstances we may well ponder before accepting Mr. Lodge's opinion that the American people may safely give to his Impulsive friend the greatest trust and the highest responsibility which any people can give to any man. . The Constitution may follow Oio flag, but tho trial by jury doesn't necessarily follow- the Con stitution. Thus we seem to have two sorts of Con stitutionsthe Constitution With, which we give to our States and territorial possessions, and the Con stitution Without, which we reserve for our purely colonial possessions. - St. Louis County is struggling with Oie brain taxing problem, "When is a cafe a saloon and when a restaurant?" In due time will arise another grave problem, "When is a buffet a bar?" Later a still more complicated problem, "Is a cafe a buffet, a restaurant a cafe, a bar a restaurant, an eaUng- house a saloon, a club a bar; or what's the differ ence?" .. TAYLOR-SIMPSON WEDDING OTHER NUPTIALS SOLEMNIZED Republican politicians welcome the Booker Wash ington incident as the subject of campaign argu ment. The effect of the Booker Washington" in cident, they deelaie. is to help the negroes to stay bought. When Republicans glory ' in "buying negroes," what sort of slavery is it? It is a happy coincidence that tho alienists and newspaper humorists arc meeting in St Louis at the, same time. The humorists will be under ob servation by the alienists, while the alienists will bo under observation by the humorists. -O- Pending full racial development in Oie Philip pines. It is not unlikely that the colonies will origi nate the comparatively new system of government by judicial autocracy. WOULD IT BE SArE? Among the more impressive words of Senatoi Kcnry Cabot Lodge in his Introduction to the late ly published book of Mr. Roosevelt's addresses and presidentfal messages aie these: "The American peo ple are to be asked to give again to Mr. Roosevelt the greatest tntst and the highest rcsponsibllity which any people can gic to any man." Senator Iodge thinks Oiey may safely do it. Judge Parks recently considered this proposition from another point of view, saying that "it docs not seem prudent to nominate him for another term. The command of the army and navy for four yearn more might tempt him to abuse his power, and to involve his country iiij the misery and guilt of an aggressive and destructive war. As bearing upon a choice between these two opin ions it is Interesting to view the expressions of Mr. Roosevelt himself. Speaking In Philadelphia, to the Union League Club, which he described rather thun derously as having been "founded in the dark days of the Civil War, to uphold the hands of Abraham Lincoln and give aid to those who battled for the Unlou and for human liberty," he concluded his strenuous exhortation with this sentiment: No nation an great aB ours can expect to escape the penalty of greatness, for greatness docs not come without trouble and labor. There are problems ahead of us at home and problems abroad, because such problems are incident to the work ing out of a great national "career. Wo do not shrink from them. Scant Is our patience with those who preach the gos pel of craen weakness. No nation under n the" sun ever yet played a part worth playing If It feared Its fate overmuch If It did not have the courage to be great. We of America, tie tho sons of a nation ct In the pride of its lusty youth, spurn the teachings of distrust, spurn the creed of failure and despair. We know that the future is ours If we hale in us the man hood to grasp it, and we enter the new century girding our loln- for the contest before us, rejoicing In tho struggle, and resolute so to bear ourselves that the na tion's future shall even surpass her glo rious past. Would it be fair 4o-deduee from these words, ut tered some months ago, that Mr. Roosevelt views himself as the Instrument of desUny to reach out arfd "grasp the future" for America? And Is he to be the judge or what sort of, a future Is good for us? If so, then we are assured that Oie future contains a "contest" and a "struggle"; nnd wo may assume that the contest and struggle will not be wholly confined to peace. There is the suggestion of con quest and 'expansion .for this "nation yet In the pride The opening of the Missouri building to-morrow should attract a throng from all parts of the State. Missouri is a great feature of tho World's Fair. -. Natural gas has been discovered at Robinson, III. It should be piped over to the convention at Springfield. ,.. RECENT COMMENT. - r The Lure of Department Life. Champ Clark In Saturdiy Evening Post. , I then asked: "Why don't jou get out of Washington, locate somewhere else, set up for jourself and be a man among men?" Then came a reply which advocates of life tenure would do well to ponder, for It is true of thousands of others besides this man. He answered: "Because I do riot know how to do anj thing except the routine work I hao been doing n the War Department for more than a quarter of a century, and I am too old to try to learn nn thing else now." A mora hopeless declaration I never heard from human 'ip. A more dismal countenanco I never beheld than his as ho thought mournfully of -vanished j ears. Yet for nearly a generation he had held a position which thousands coet and for which thousands struggle. The end was woe and penury In his old age. I Inquired: "How Ions since you have been In the Ninth Congressional District of Missouri V "nfteen ear," was the answer. I said: "I will try and have you reinstated on one con dition, as jou appear to hae been dismissed without fault on our part merely to makeToom for another. The condition Is this: Tou must go home every two jears to vote. No man has a moral right to live in this Republic fifteen years without exercising the right of suffrage tho right preserntlve of all rights. Vote for me It ou can, but if you can't do that conscientiously vote for the other fellow. At any rate. otc!" Ho promised faith fully that he would do so. The nett morning I wont oer to see Colonel Dan La mont, then Secretary of War, the most affable of mor tals, nnd told him tho story, with the request that he reinstate my forlorn constituent. Ho looked at me with aT twinkle In his ejo nnd asked: "Do you really want this man reinstated, or are jou simply going through a perfunctory performance to keep jour promise techni cally to his wife?" I assured the genial Daniel that I was In dead earnest. He complied with my request, and restored my protege to his place and tho pay roll, w hero he remains to this day. What will happen to him? Why, some time, when there Is a Representative from that district who knows nothing and cares nothing for this man's wife's relaties, he will be thrown out for keeps In the cold, cold worldi whero there Is weeping and wall ing and gnashing of teeth. His was not an isolated and unusual case. Without having Inquired particularly about it I will guarantee that nearly eery Representative and Senator has had a somewhat similar experience some of them many such. m n. m t if .- I I I '' , j-satrHEssnn&KiwmuBiuiTCBiBEEaaB fHPv"PjiRME"""H9K9BHPBI Vc Rffe ilfliiraBlflBmHMSSl ' "'""V W)W'" y "uHHH!SSfliBP9H r-& mmf-; . n ri , m&imamjmmiMmmBgGitA 1 - mMgmgm$gmm ..

The two days' action which resulted In the crossing of the Yalu by the Japanese and tho occupation on May 1 of Chlti-Hen-Chong. on the north bank of the river op posite WIJu, arcely made any Interruption in tho ma chlnellko movement of the Japanese force. Discipline was In no way relaxed, nor the onward march stayed. De ducting tho killed and wounded., the army now proceeds with Its automatic precision. The twenty Russian field guns which the Japanese captured, together with twenty oftlccrs and 400 men, at Hoh-Mu-Tang, during the pur suit of the fleeing Russians, have been brought back to Antung. Eight Maxims, fifty ammunition wagons and many other munitions of war which were captured dur ing the pursuit of the Russians have alsb been brought to Antung. They Include heavy band Instruments, heavy lumbering equipment-fit, perhaps, for the Russian steppes, but totally unfit for the rough Manchurian roads for which the mobile, light Japanese equipment was es pecially prepared. The contrast between the Russian and the Japanese equipment Is tho contrast between a heavy truck and a light buggy. The Russians apparently moved down to their position on the Ynlu River a they might from one Siberian gar rison to another, without tnklng thought of how they were to get away and "without rraklng'any proper roads to their gun position. The trenches which their Infantry had to defend were without the support of artillery, nnd wholly unndapted for cover from the galling Japanese shell fire. In the crossing of the Yalu, garrison vegeta tion and easy-going overconndence were forced to meet the preparedness of the specialist attacking his. special task. The Cossack sabers taken In the engagement had dull edges. Later we may meet a real Russian army equipped with St. Petersburg modernity and acumen. Thus far tho clash has ber. between old-fashioned cour age and sword-brandihlng against scientific readiness. What It now rciltaej most Js the unprecedented mobil ity of the Japan mo infantry. So fnr everything has been done according It ho expert text-books. Miss Graco Simpson and Lieutenant Theodore Burnett Talor, U. S. A., were married jesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock, the ceremony being a military affair at tho Lafayette Park Presbyterian Church.

The road leading toit cajjie lip Broadway, turned east whero Ann street Is and skirted the pasture along the line ot Nassau street to a point above the bridge.
