THAT SECOND CLASS CONVEN TION. Wednesday's Chicago Tribune In' Its account of the Republican convention said: "In the presence of nearly 12, 000 persons, constituting probably the most distinguished assemblage ever In attendance- at a national convention, the oinforlcal battle over the tempor ary organization was fought." The Tribune must have a short mem ory. The present Republican conven tion, compared to some of Its prede cessors, Is mediocre In tho extreme. The great convention of 18S0 lihd more great men In one delegation than this convention has In Its entire make up. Four men who wcro afterward presi dents of the United States were Hit ting delegates In it. James H. Oarlleld' was 'chairman of the Ohio delegation and William McKlnley was one of Its members. Benjamin Harrison was chairman of the Indiana delegation nnd Chester A. Arthur was n delegate from New York. The peerless Rob coe Conkllng headed the men from the Empire state, while John A. Logan, Emory A. Storrs, Shelby M. Culloni, Richard J. Oglesby and others rep resented Illinois. Tho convention sparkled with greatness nnd George F. Hoar, the distinguished senator from Massachusetts, was tho chairman. Tho twenty thousand men and women who made up the spectators embrnced somo of the greatest people in the land, and General Phil Sheridan, who was a spectator, was called to the platform amidst cheers, when some one voted for him for president, to modestly declare that he uns not n candidate. Perhaps there were not as many of tho moneyed aristocracy look ing on at the convention of 1SS0 as thero nro at the present one. But tho real nrtlstocracy was represented on that occasion by Prico Leopold, Unite of Albany and his sister, Princess Louise, who wero nmong those hon ored with guests tickets. Oh no, in every department the convention of 1912 Is Inferior to the convention of 18S0. JUST LIKE COMISKEY. One of the pleasant features of the national convention season in Chicago was the handsome treatment of Presi dent Garry Hermann of tho Cincinnati National League Baseball Club and the Blaine Republican Club of Cincin nati by President Charles Comlskey of the Chicago Whlto Sox. The visitors and their big band wero given a royal welcome nt Comlskey Park and were afterwards tendered a grand banquet at tho Rienzl on the north side on the evening of the same day, Mr. Comlskey acting as chief host on botn occasions The Old Roman, as Comlskey Is pop ularly known, Is n rock rooted Demo crat. But he Is, above everything else, a Cblcagoan to the core. He Is one of the men who always docs tho city proud. LABOR AND PRICES. That the cost of lnbor and tho prico of living should bo regulated by law Is becoming evident to every one. Where there Is no regulation tncro is a diversity of Interest that can never be harmonized and that will continue to work to the disadvantage of all con cerned. Fairness and Justice to all demands, that there should bo a gov ernmental protfctlon and supervision which would protect tho rights of everybody In tho premises. RAPID GROWTH IN EXPORTS TO SOUTH AMERICA. Exports to South America have shown a phenomenal gain In the fiscal year which ends with tho presont month. Prior to 1911 tho total voluo of exports to South America had never reached 100 million dollars. In 1911 tho total waa, speaking In round terms, 109 million dollars, and In tho curront fiscal year which ends with tho pres ent month seems likely to bo about 135 million dollars, having more than doubled since 1905. Argentina Is tho country showing by far tho largest gain in our exports to South America. Tho figures now avail able In tho Bureau of Statistics of tho Department of Commorco and Labor Indicate that tho total exports to Ar gentina for tho complete fiscal year P THE CHICAGO AGLE,. . ' ...'
