One of the queerest objects to be dubbed a boat is the Tolanda II, a low

'her way up the Hudson river without sails. The boat, which is a develop

A Queer 3IIx-Up.
A curious mix-up, which has pro
duced friction in tile President's cab
inet, doubtless has hampered the gov
ernment's efforts to apprehend and
punish those conspirators who have
been engaged in efforts to blow up
American and other ships carrying
munitions of war and which, if Con
gress ddes its duty, may develop into
a scandal of proportions, has come to
light following the arrest by the Se
cret Service of Robert Fay and his as
sociates. The Secret Service Is, of
couse, the proper corps to deal with
offenses of this kind, but it develops
that the "Trust Busters" attached to
the Department of Justice, under the
supervision of A. Bruce Blelaskl, havf
been doing most of this character of
work, although in announcements to
the public it has been stated that it
was being done by the State Depart
ment. Fay and his associates, how
ever, were first arrested by the New
York police, with which department
"William J. Flynn, head of the Secret
Service, was formerly connected. The
Xew York police turned Fay et al. over
to Flynn and he promptly employed
an extra force of men to run down the
other conspirators and the "men high
er up." Although the Secret Service
is in the Treasury Department, Sec
retary McAdoo objected. So did Bie
laski and Attorney General Gregory.
There began to circulate ugly stories
of efforts by the administration to
shield certain of its friends who were
among the "higher ups ." Flynn pur
sued his work and there arose a ques
tion as to where he procured the funds
to carry it on. Then it was discovered
that the Secretary of War, who, ap
parently, distrusts the work of Bie
laski and his subordinates, had found
some fund which he had placed at the
disposal of Flynn. It is understood
that Mr. McAdoo has now ordered
Flynn to abondon the task, while At
torney General Gregory has appealed
to the States to carry on the task on
the ground that the Federal laws are
inadequate. The real facts may never
be disclosed, In view of the powerful
influences being exerted to suppress
them, but if they are it will result in
a mighty scandal, altogether too close
to the head of the administration to
be comfortable. Congress should put
Secretary Garrison on the stand.
George W. Perkins "Perk," as he is
affectionately called by his intimates
is going up and dow,n the land try
ing to "perk" up the Progressives and
declaring that Missouri and other
States will certainly put a presidential
ticket in the field. Evidently Mr. Per
kins does not face with equanimity the
sad prospect of being a leader with no
one to lead. His pronunciamentoes
regarding a Progressive presidential
candidate, etc., fall rather flat in view
of the unanimity with which the Pro
gressives have decided to return to
the faith of their fathers. Missouri it
self shows striking evidence of this
In 1912 Missouri gave Mr. Roosevelt
124,000 votes. Last year the largest
Progressive vote cast In the State was
for Senator. It numbered 27,000.
President Wilson's State shows strik
ingly the passing of the Progressives
In 1912 that party cast 145,410 votes
in Xew Jersey; in 1914 it cast 21,236.
and in 1915 It cast 6,903. Neither can
Mr. Perkins find much comfort in the
showing of his party in Massachusetts
In that State the Progressives cast
127,000 votes in 1913, a total of 32,000
in 1914, and only 7,000 in 1915. Tho
Progressive party may put a presi
dential ticket in the field but it looks
now as if the nominee must be George
W. Perkins, the nominator George W
Perkins and the main voter for the
nominee George W. Perkins.

An Vufi Senator.
"Farmer Jim Martine, United
States Senator from Xew Jersey, has
come bluntly into the open and proved
his own unfitnesss to be Senator. Sen
ator Martine, apparently forgetting
that the power of speech could un
make him, has expressed to newspa
per interviewers his great surprise
that President Wilson should have
conferred with Governor Fielder and
State Chairman Grosscup for the pur
pose of picking a Senator to succeed
him, Mr. Martine, because, as lie
naively explains, the New Jersey pri
mary law provides that the voters
shall select the candidate. "This law
was passed in Mr. Wilson's adminis
tration as Governor says the injured
Mr. Martine, "and he was looked upon
as abolishing the old boss system of
selecting candidates." Of course, it
was so looked upon by the people
and that such was the intention of
Governor Wilson, for whom the law
made many votes But that was not
the intention of Mr. Wilson, then or
now, and the fact that Mr. Martine
has been closely associated with Mr
Wilson, during his term as Governor
and later as President, without real
izing that It Is only the Republicans
who have bosses, while the Demo
cratic bosses are "statesmen and the
further fact that Mr. Wilson has as
much contempt for popular rule now
as he had when he was Governor of
Xew Jersey, conclusively mark Mr.
Martine as a man of too dull percep
tions to serve his party usefully in the
United States Senate. Mr. Martine so
completely falls to understand the
Wilson system of dictatorial "leader
ship" that It is no wonder that Mr
Wilson summoned the Xew Jersey
party "leaders" to select another man
for Mr. Marti no's shoes.
Daniels, Discipline and Demagogy.
"Aside from giving us ships and men
we must get action from Congress
that will let the navy conduct its own
affairs. The reason that we are so
inadequately prepared is that the navy
has been the 'ham bone of the poli
ticians." These were the expressions
of Commander Yates Stirling; U. S. X.
before certain patriotic societies in
Philadelphia. Secretary Daniels had
not yet seen an authenticated report
of Commander Stirling's remarks, to
doy. so it is still impossible to an
nounce when the commander's trial
bv court-martial will take place. Com
mander Stirling may not have been
thinking of Secretary Daniels, but he
could not have shot straighter if he
had been. The very day these re
marks were delivered Mr. Daniels had
set aside the finding of a court-martial,
the members of which court he
had himself chosen, because their find
ing was not in accordance with his
preconcicved ideas. Of the effect on
the discipline of the navy of Secretary
Daniels' course any intelligent citizen
can judge. Of the infinite number of
instances where Mr. Daniels has
thrown discipline to the winds and
guided his courts solely b; the prin
ciple of political expediency, and the
furtherance of his own political ambi
tions, or of the extent of his contri
bution to the Inefficiency of the ship0
and men and his responsibility for ex
travagance of administration, the vot
ers probably will never know These
things arc known to naval officers aud
the President, but the former dare
not tell and the President does not
care to because he regards Mr. Dan
iels as useful In retaining the loyalty
of the Bryan wing of tho Democracy.
