Despoil Despoiling ing the Ballot
In communities where crooked poli ¬
tics has been toierated ta crated the looting of
a ballot box has been regarded as an
incident The rhe man capable of such
an act has been regarded as asa a a valua ¬
ble worker and when subjected to
exposure lias found powerful agencies
ready to shield him This Thisseeins seems to
be changing < h hanging anging
Two men men in Denver stole a ballot
box took out such part of the con ¬
tents as did not agree with their th irpur pur ¬
pose and substituted counterfeits counter eits
This trick was an anoJd old one in Denver DenvcrIn
In this instance the theoffeIiders offenders were l
brought to trial found guilty and
sentenced one to three thr e and the other
JLO to five years in the penitentiary The
sentences sent ncessee seem n nsevere severe but on only ly be ¬
cause causeu unusual usual The crime was was a great eat
one In the first place it was theft
and in in thesecond the second it subverted subvertedthe the th
very Y rysp spirit irlt tha that fl1nde underlies rlies a all il popular pqp lar
The Tl e act of voting is to accord to
the voter the opportunity to toexpress express
his will He H records this will on a
ballot If a thief is istO to have theprivi
lege of stealing the aggregate bal ¬
lots the franchise becomes becOIn s a farce fa rce
and upright citizenship is is deprived of
part in in the direction of affairs
To place Ballotbox 1ailotbox looters and
stuffers in the penitentiary pen1ten tiary is is t the e best
thing that could be done with them
In case cas of a c lean sweep of o f this type
of criminal criminaltheexpens the expense of support
Ing ngthe ng the imholyr imholyrb imholyrnd b blndw bnd nd would 1d beconsid be consid ¬
erable cnble but compared with the danger
of permitting them at large it it could
be b borne with satisfaction s
Selling Awards
1 I
Charges Charg that at St StLouis SL Louis awards
were sold 50ldto to the competitors eomp titors w willing ling i
to pay the the highest price price constitute
the basis b sis for a scandal of large size
It surely surel is worth investigation and a rid
there ought to be slight difficulty difficult in in
determining determ ning the justice untice of the accusa
tion That the opportunity for graft
was excellent and that dishonest man men me
empowered to give give out out the prizes s
could easily easi have reaped a harvest
seems reasonable re sona ble If the talk arises arscs
merely from trom the circumstance ci that
somebody is disgruntled it itneverthe neverthe ¬
less demands scrutiny scr tiny for slander is
In itself a serious crime
The exposition expo sitlonat at St 51 Louis L uis was w a na na n ¬
tional affair and the t e most Impressive mpressive
ever held It was backed by the Gov ¬
ernment and by the various varIous States
with with a liberality liberalit that created common
and widespread interest in in the man ¬
ner of its conduct o duct If the magnitude
of o the f fair ir1Iia made e possible bygeneial by gene general ral
support was employed as as a means of
illicit gain faith has been broken
Vr with ith the nation and the States and an d
S the grievance is most comprehensive
With the management no fault has
been been found The Th exposition was di ¬
rected cted by men of repute above any
chicanery chicaneryor or fraud Such uch grafting as
may mayh have Ve been done if any must mustbe be
ascribed to underliIigs ready to be ¬
tray the officials who had trusted
them These will either welcome the
opportunity to explain or have to ac ¬
cept the verdict that they are afraid
to explain f
Ole g tfesirable De s1r iraNe b1e Fad Faq

a fad
Is the square deal now so brave br ye ¬

There are fads in nearly n arlY everything
rV rVp p fads in society fads in art
literature L ll 1 teraturc rature and the drama and even
fads in suicide 6uici le and in business businessand and
it is not notU unreasonable to suppose
then th Il that there are fads in political politi al
That Th lt < the country is entering nterm upon i pon
an era when there there is more moreh honesty IlCstY ln iE
politics PC Itics her e can an be no question Qn t1on
and the simultaneous sImultaneous movement ir i i
this direction n in many States Stat sru a ai
well as in national affairs seems tx
indicate that it has taken on the na

That there is a deeper movemen
underlying all this political upturn
ing there can be no doubt bu
that many prtiticians p liticians who heretofore
seemed to possess pOsfj SS a 3 different natur
are now wheeling into line and gain
along with this tliI movement becausi be us
the rest arej are is hardly less doubtful
It is not so o hard now forreform for reform lead
ers to gain followers followersand and those too
of the be most unexpected kind Met
apparently most bitterly inimical ti t
Roosevelt and his policies supportc
him and will support him because o
this movement and v vf what f hat is true o
national politics is true of State pqll poll i
tics And yet et these thesemen men have n 10 jo
changed In nature
It seems that politicians hs as swell well a
other people like to be fashionable

In Interests of the People
The argument of the national commit ¬
tee was was made In the interest of the
whole wholepeQpleas people as represented repres n dbY by thei their
governors gOYErnorsrather rather than in the interest
of the District or Columbia Colmnbia although its

fatal weather It was admitted adm itted of o f
course courseth that t if the th Inauguration Inaugurat on day was
transferred transfe rred to the last wee week week k in April it

double dou b bethe ethe the number of Visitors Isitorsta to Wash ¬

any Intention to rest the case on that
