WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 1". 1PH. maim: really r.oEs "dry." With all cities, towns and planta? tions In the State of Main-? reported, and all but one hundred und ninety-, six of the returns verified by the clerks of election. Prohibition won In the election on Monday by a majority of four hundred and sixty-five. This Is a very close margin, but It is quite enough to show that Maine Is consti? tutionally opposed to the open bar? room. All the cities voted for the re? peal of constitutional prohibition, but their majorities were not sufficient to overcome the country vote. We suppose th?t the illicit sale of liquor will continue In the cities as heretofore, that the boot-leggers and blind tigers will flourish, that outside whiskey houses will keep their agents In the principal centres of population, and that men who want to drink will find some way of buying the stuff when | they want it: hut the State will be nominally a prohibition State at least If the voters could find officeholders who would be faithful to their trust, which they do not appear to have been 1 able to do In the past, a more rigid J enforcement of the law would be pos- ? slble. The defeat of the repealers will be of Immediate advantage to the Illicit dealers, of course: but the peo? ple of the State have kept faith with their past and the Prohibitionists nil over the country will rejoice. , Thousands of votes were doubtless cast against repeal for business rea? sons Such at any rate was the argu? ment made at a recent meeting In the village of Ogunqult by a strong oppo? nent of the repeal movement who sub? mitted to the voters that, leaving tho moral question, which was very great, out of consideration, It would be bet? ter for the State to have the money thnt would be spent for whiskey spent rather in tho channels of "legitimate trr.de." This argument doubtless had weight with many voters who were j halting between two opinions. dU A RR i". ling in HARTFOItn. When Governor Harmon was at Hartford the other day he was cor? dially received by a number of the most prominent Democrats In the. State, and had a very enjoyable time. The Courant reported that he said in the Informal conversation he had with his friends that he could beat Mr. Taft In Ohio. Now comes the Hon. Robert P. Butler, chairman of the Democratic party In Hartford?the same who car? ried Governor Harmon's valise from the train to the automobile in which he was taken to the hotel?denying the accuracy of the report In the Courant and saying: "In all his (Harmon's) conversation he did not mention his candidacy for the Demo? cratic nomination for the Presidency a year hence, and his discussion of the next (Pr&SldeJitlal election was Wholly free from personal reference . . . . Governor Harmon made' no such boast. H<; was asked, among oth? er questions, what appeared to be th Democratic chances in Ohio next fall, and he replied thnt If the party should he. ns firmly together then ns It ap? pears to be now. he believed President Taft would lose Ohio." Mr. Butler also sought In his letter to the Courant to Impress upon it the value nf courtesy, saying that al? though Governor Harmon was not nt the time of his visit to Hartford th ? guest of the city, "his position as the oxeeutlve head of a great State, and even the most ordinary respect to the distinguished stranger within our gates should secure to him on such a visit at'least that dccenl courtesy which only the day before was ac? corded to the President of the United States by persons of all politic ,1 faiths." Squirming under this re proof, tho Courant "welcomes this gently put rebuke from such n model of modesty and decorum ns the get.', tlemsn who beat out the Governor <.f the state and th? Mayor of the City nt the station and got Governor Har? mon into his dutches' bet?re either of these -pushing and self-assertive oil1. clals could get near the train." thus harking back to the fact' that Mr. Butler carried the valise nt the dis? tinguished visitor, a service which, probably, neither Judge Baldwin no. Mayor Smith c.ired to perform, r<nd declares that "leading Democrats With whom he talked informed the Couraril reporter that Governor Harmon It?. made the (-tatement to them that n.? could best Taft In Ohio." We hav< no._ doubt that he could beat Taft j Ohl?, and that is one of the feasor why he Is. an available -candidate fp President; but we seriously doubt tha v he really made the statement nttr! buted to him by the Hertford pnp?-r The reporter for the.Courant does no appear to have heard him say any thing, of the sort, and it Is not 1m probable that the "leading Dotnporal *ere mistaken In the information the imparted to the reporter. Ai a gen aral thing, the reporter can he de pended upon to sot down the facts and not tno inferences. We regret that there has been a-ny charge of discourtesy against the Cou rant, we don't believe that It would be Intentionally discourteous to any? body: but the lesson In good monn-'-rs which Mr. Butler has attomptod to teach it will not bo lost if in Its treatment of other Democratic candi? dates for President who shall visit Hartford It will exercise greater euro In Its reports of what they actually day. In order to prevent the recur? rence of the unpleasant incident which Mr. Butler has so gently rebuked, we would suggest that Dr. Charles Hop? kins Clark, the distinguished editor of the Couranl. be always placed on j the reception committee. He Is a Re? publican, it is true, of the most hope? less character, and is also strongly opposed to woman mffrage, but Jhe , very soul of courtesy, besides being one of the handsomest men In Con? necticut, he would make the candi? date feel at home. We feel warranted In saying, further, that he would not object to Mr. Butler carrying all their valises, There would be no impro? priety in his acting on this commit? tee. Nearly all the reception commlt tees that have welcomed Mr. Taft to: the South have been composed entire- | ly of Democrats. ! HOOSEVRL.T AND BHYAN ? WHY NOT? j There wan a meeting of the two ; immortals, both of whom are still liv i ing and kicking, In The Outlook office j in New York City one day last week. ' It was a purely friendly visit, so far as the public Is informed, and it fol ; lowed a previous meeting down Oys? ter Bay way a few days before they i were closeted in the New York sanc? tum. ? What they talked about and all that was said will never be known unless Dr. Lyman Abbott set the dictaphone so that it would catch at least the | drift of the conversation, which, fori ihe sake of history, we sincerely hope he did. We imagine, however, that there was a free interchange of views as to what paramount issues might be spruntr a little later upon an ever receptive public, and possibly there was much mutual congratulation upon the successes that have attended the' planning of the one and the execu? tion of the other. Both of them would doubtless like to get Into the political game again, and if they would only toss up for place and bunch their hits, what more formidable ticket could be put in the held for the next Presidential elec? tion than The Colonel from New Y'ork and The Colonel from Nebraska? Platform? Why, no platform would be needed. They would be their own platform, and they would mage such D stir in the political life of this Nation as was never known before. The Adullamites from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico would Hock to their j Standard, and where they led tens of j thousands would follow, make no mis? take about that. Roosevelt and Bryan, or Bryan and Roosevelt, according as the coin might determine, and we should have that breaking up of old party lines which would make tho Constitution tremble. A GREAT JUDGE'S VIEW, At the recent convention of the I American Bar Association In Boston. [ former Justice H. B. Brown, of the j United States Supreme Court, gave his approval Of the short ballot and the commission form of government. Ho said that the plan or commission gov? ernment for cities is earning a ?'?well deserved popularity." "The widely democratic ideas." ho said, "which be? gan to prevail early in the last cen- ! t?ry," and finally ended in the pop? ular elections of justices of the peace. ' constables, street commissioners and other petty officers have begun to give place to "saner views which look more to the efficiency of those chosen than to the gratification of a popular whim In choosing them." He went on to say that the argument is (hat if the people may he entrusted to elect the Head of the ticket and Its legislative officers, they mhy he entrusted equally with the choice of all the officers. "But '? the analogy fails in this * ital par- | tlcular.V he said, "the voter may i>e I assumed to know the h.oad of the t ticket, as Well as the man who wished | t.i represent him in the legislative I 1 dy. but ho cannot know the multi? tude of minor ofRcei'B who are neces? sary for the conduct of a great bus- \ iness." I ormer Justice Brown has been ranked as a conservative. One thing I? oertaln?his commendation of the j 1 commission plan of government Is ? praise from sir Hubert Stanley, for ' his lifetime has been given to the study of government In this republic. WOODROW WILSON'S CAMPAIGN ' I I Ml. One must go away from home to find' : the news. Here comes the Havana j (Cuba) Post with the story that icj cost $100.000 to elect Woodrow Wilson! Governor of New Jersey lnst year and that former United States Senator! James Smith, Jr.. of Newark. contrl-| huted $70.000 of this large 'sum. ThjM Posl *.ays further that letters were lb prlnceton graduates through' out the country inviting subscriptions, I to tho Wilson campaign fund, but that I j only $a,SOo was raised In this way.I i The Cuban paper wants to know "Who! I Is providing funds for the Governor I Wilson Preta Bureau In New York and ! Trenton, and for the Wilson agents. Who are visiting the various Slates of 1 the Union?" Stooping only, lohjj enough to say that It is none of this Havana paper's I, islnefVa, if howbelt there is a Wilson I Press Bureau and Wllfion agents in jail the States, we would remark that; I Governor. Wilson hai, a good deal of ? money of his own. has many friends : who believe In him who have money, and really does not need a great deal j to keep his campaign going, seeing that he Is one of the best " nown men [ In the country, and has caught the ear ; of the newspapers and news agencies > with the result that he is assnrcd of j great gobs of publicity without money ? or price. Besides, what's the matter with tho Hon. James Smith, Jr., who : hus a long purse and a good memory?! I why shouldn't he come across hand '? somely? If It be true, us stated, that '. he subscribed $70,000 to elect Dr. Wil? son Governor of New Jersey, thus con ' tining the political activities of tho '. Schoolteacher to that State, why would I he not do even better, in the circum i stances, to get the Schoolmustor out of the State so that his Influence might be spread out thin over this! great Union of States rather than be! cribbed, coffined and confined to Smith's ancestral pieserves'.' UY-ELECTIONS THIS FALL. The death of George XV. Gordon, of the Tenth Tennessee; of H. C. Louden slager, of the First New Jersey; of A. K. Mitchell, of the Second Kansas, and of G. \V. Kepp, of the Fourteenth Pennsylvania districts, will test the tariff issue even beforo a general elec? tion- The successor of General Gor? don In the Memphis district will be a democrat, and Mr. Mitchell's succes? sor will probably be an Insurgent Re? publican. Last full, Mr. Mitchell re? ceived 23.2S2 votes, and John Caldwell. Democrat, got 19,851', and K. Richards O'Hara, Socialist, polled 2,272. The First New Jersey District is very close, and the ejection of a Democrat is most likely. The same is true of the Fourteenth Pennsylvania District, In which G. W. Kepp. Democrat, was elected last year by about 800 plu? rality. The outlook Is that four Democrats may be elected In the four districts. The by-elections will be considered straws that show which way the wind is blowing, "BULLY!" The New Tork World has .formed the pernicious habit of remembering things thnt the Greatest Living American would fain forget. ' In the current number of The Out? put, The Contributing Editor says; "I, for one, would rather cut off my hand than see the United States adopt tho attitude either of cringing before great and powerful nations who wish to wrong us or by bullying small and weak nations that have done us no wrong." And The World is mean enough to quote from The Colonel's speech at tho University of California as fol? lows: "1 took Panama, and then left Congress Co debate." It looks us If The World had thus deliberately and with malice afore? thought put The Colonel in tho nine hole. But as the late Patrick Walsh answered whan ho was charged with having changed his views on the tariff question? with quotations from his edi? torial rfiliverances to embarrass him; "Well, that's what I thought then; and this Is what I think now." GOOD PUR TUB GERAGHTY8. These are glorious days for Jack Geraghty and his lovely wife, long life | to them! Since their return to New- | port presents have been pouring in j upon them at their modest home In j Everett Street, the cooking of the Wife Is getting better every day and; day after day. and the husband's busl nest is fairly booming, having doubled since they got back home from their honeymoon In Springfield. The "Sum- ; mer Colony" at Newport have taken them up and men and women havo been buying automobiles and things ; for automobiles from Jack Geraghty who never bought before. There is also talk about a reconciliation and "n long-standing friend of the French family." says The Times correspond? ent, "has advised Mrs. Geraghty to] walk Into her home and throw her arms around her mother's neck." That would be very line, of course, but It would be far more like the proper thing If her mother would walk Into the house on Everett Street and throw her arms around "dear old Jack's" neck. She would in this way gain a gi id son even ns he found a mighty line wife. TOO MI CH GOLD. A learned professor has lately pre? dicted before n body of distinguished British students that the coming three years will be marked by itilkes. labor wars and violence, because since 183? the cost of living hns been rising steadily, whereas before that time the cost of living had been going down. 11 Is somewhat striking that th s year 1S<?6 should be selected from which to date an Inflation of prices due to an enormous Intlatlon Of the mono? supply, but such is "the Irony of statist lea." The professor says: "Tho enormous output of gold in recent years has upset the balance of prices and the world has not yet shaken Itself down to a true adjust? ment" If it should prove correct that we are starting upon a period of unrest and disturbance which can be traced illrcrt to the gold supply, and that In "this period somebody should nrls? to suggest .i change' from gold on the ground that there is too much of It, we should have the money Issue In a new and interesting form. A very interesting thing happened at Chicago the other day. A man pro? posed to celebrate the opening of the I oyster season. He received a barrel of the fancy breed for the gala day. j To get the bivalves In good condition he fed them bounteously on suited j cornm-;al. Just ns. itlj the humane nnd 1 thoughtful people of Richmond do I While dipping his hand, filled with the meal, into the barrel, one of the. oysters, blggor and hungrier than tho others, opened Its shell wide to- sot a I hugo mouthful, and In closing: down j on It, Caught tho man's hand ns In a vise. It wouldn't let go. In great ! Pain, the man ran for a doctor who j separated the mangled lingers from I the grasp of the oyster. Tho oyster Is j of peacablo disposition, but, like the I cooter. If ho gets the finger In his j mouth, he won't, let go until it thun i ders. j Here Is a question which every stud j ent trying to enter the medical col? leges should be asked on his exami? nations to-day: Why is a glosslna palpalle, and what has It to do with trypanosonia gamblenEC? If not, why not, but" when?

Saturday the dreadnought "Dela? ware" shot up the old battleship "Texas" some more, with exactly what results we are not informed. Tho | Dring was done at ranges between 14,000 and 16,000 yards and It was ex- ' peeled that the shots would finish the i gallant old hulk which brought glory to the American arms in the war be? tween the United States and Spain thirteen years ago. We only wish that the "Texas" could have tuken a few i shots at the "New Hampshire" and j "Delaware" In return for their broad? sides. Pretty expensive business, we should say, to use a ship that cost ; three or^four million dollars as a mark , to shoot at! . -i-: "George Washington Bailey, editor of the Houston Post, is spending his vacation In Ashevtlle." So says tho Charlotte Evening Chronicle: but It I Isn't true, as "there alnt no such anl mal." There Is a man called George Marcellus Bailey: but he isn't like George Washington in the least de? gree. This Is probably the aian whose name has been changed by the Char? lotte paper. One of these days he will probably slip over into Tennessee to' consult with Governor Hooper, on whose personal staff he holds the poBl tion of Colonel. Abe Martin oays: "Ther's talk o' buildin' a home fer ole an" indignant consumers." Voicp of the People "Queed." To the Fdltor of The Tim6R-Dispatch: Sir,?Shakespeare was said to be one of the greatest plagiarists ever. He could take most any old dry goods box of an idea and hammer it a little (as( the ladies do) and with a little flowered chintz to cover the cracks he would dress it up with pink ribbons so as to look real original. Only a genius can thus gracefully steal and improve on i tho literary junk which he lugs Into his scriptorium. Here this fellow. Henry Sydnor Harrison, has written a book he calls "Q?eed." .Vow, I am not often deluded into reading "best sellers," and my rule is to wait a year an(i then put it off. but a female Inveigled me into it,: and 1 have read it. As you might say, j it is not half had, but I will tell you1 more:- This young map is said to have once been an editor, but is now reform? ed, and be seems to have a penchant for blue-eyed girls (the famous star-' eyed blondes of the Richmond Times- j Dispatch). You can doubtless place; him from this. Now this 'book would be very fine If It had not been written by a woman? thai |s, you ein see that some such must have told him to do 't. and you fee! like this Delilah must have been a very competent female. She makes this ex-edltor do wonders. He tniks like Tolstoy in his dramatis personae movements, and he lias the unreal realism of the great Russian prophet, and, |n common, they have that in? sight into every-day people which only, women can achieve. The pink ribbons are very happily pla?ed, and he has evidently read Dickens: In fact, he seems to be a well educated man, which fs unique In nn i author. The plot la almost as good as that of- "Our Mutual Friend, and Queed is just as mysteriously <-u!xot!c, or blunderingly scientific, as John Harmon, but :he author IS young yet, and his artistic values are not quite accurately balanced?a little slangy now and then, and Dickens would not have asked the dying Nicolovlus to tell whore his stolen hoard was hid. On the who!.-, the author seems to mean well, and don't give ns any erratic problems to solve, and as to W.Oman's rights, it does not exist?for the gentle sex do all the wire-pulling In this tale. The scene is laid in Richmond, and the side lights which he spot? on recent Virginia history are wholesome and true. Mr. Harrison has proved himself in Oils work, and I will put "Queed" alongside of Owen Winter's "The Vir? ginian.'.' Here Is a book of real ar ti--t!c value, which will actually sell.

PRINCESS STEPHAINE LOSES MANY RIGHTS I UY LA MARatlSE DE FONTEXOY. PRINCESS ST 12 H HAN IE of Belgium does not seem to be able to re? concile herself to the fact that ; by marrying Count Lonjay. she for ! felted her prerogatives as a princess of the blood. She Is constantly quar? reling with the authorities In Aust ittla, In Hungary. In England, Franco land Germany, at her failure to receive the honors and the Immunities accord? ed to royalty, and Just now has given ; loud voice to her dlspieanure over herj ; treatment during her recent visit to Belgium. She went to Brussels with her husband, Count Lonjay. for the- pur? pose of visiting the tomb of that fath? er and mother who during the closing years of their respective lives, declined to' hold any communication with her, I whatsoever, owing to her marriage with I Count Lonjay, In defiance of their pro? test.?. She declares that at -the Bel-| glan frontier her effects were submitted! to the same examination by the customs officers as the baggage of ordinary I travelers: that no one. not even the! station-master, or the police commie- j Bary, was present to receive her ati Brussels: that she was Ignored alike! by the court and the authorities; and' that, greatest crime of all. on her de-, parttire from Brussels, a subordinate' railroad official had "almost" placed her and her husband in "a sec?nd-classI compartment." Neither King Albert nor his Queen, nor even Princess Clementine and her husband, Prince Victor Napoleon, seem to have taken the slightest notice of Stephanie's visit, although they were) all at Brussels af the time. In short, i the former Crownprincetj of Austria-1 Hungary appears to be once more at odds with he* entire family. In Austria Stephanie has been fre? quently taken to task by the police for making use of an incognito name when traveling. She was warned that tho use of Incognito names was restricted exclusively to native and foreign royal and Imperial personages, and that per? sons not hlonglng to that category who mado uee of any other name than their own. rendered themselves liable toj prosecution, and to various penalties ( On her arguing that, oven though shej had been forced to sacrifice her rank as widowed Crownprlncess and Arch-! duchess of Austria-Hungary on her marriage with Count Lonjny, she nev? ertheless has remained a princess of, the reigning house of Belblum, ic was pointed out to her that this con-1 tentlon could not be admitted, since by wedding Count Lonjay, a Hungarian of| the lower orders of nobility, she hadj become thereby a mere Magyar noble? woman, as well as a Hungarian sub? ject, and had ceased to be a foreign princess of the blood. On the matter being referred to high? est quarters at Vienna, the action of the police was sustained; and what was still worse, the ex-crownprlncess was given to understand thnt she had, by her union with Count Lonjay. be? come amenable to the ordinary courts of law, civil as well as criminal. and' could no longer claim either ex-j territorial privileges as a prin? cess of a foreign reigning house,! or those legal Immunities, In the shape of restriction to the jurisdiction of the] special tribunal of the Hofmarschali amt, or court tribunal reserved for| cases In which the members of thei reigning house of Hapsburg are con-J cerhed. Lord Hindllp. who has Just arrived! In Canada, from England, with Lady Hindllp, on board the Empress of Britain, ami who lr.tCnds to tour In the United States before returning) home. Is the head of the great brewing i concern of Allsopp, at Burton-on-| Trent. Although still quite a young man. of a little over thirty, he ha*, al? ready achieved considerable note at* an Asiatic and African huntor and ex? plorer. Muoh of what wo know of the Somali regions of the Dark Continent, of the remote portions of Abyssinia, and of the Whlto Nile country, is duo to Lord Hlndllp, and to his Amorlcan companion In most of these expedi? tions, the aon of William Fltzroy Whltohouse, of Now York and New? port. Whereas tho Basses, that Is to say, the rival brewing house, havo always bedn Liberals, and even BadlcaU, tho Alisopps1 have always been Conserva? tives. The rivalry botweon the two great brewing Arms has therefore not been only in the matter of beer, but alBO In politics. In social matters, und even In love. For thu now Dowager Lady Hlndllp, when a young girl, as Miss Georgians Palmer-Mornwood, was courted, both by Arthur Bass, the lato Lord Burton, and by Sum Allsopp. af? terwards the second Lord Hlndllp. But eventually the maldun, who had at first favored the suit of Arthur Bubs. threw him over und became the fiancee of Sam Allsopp. On being questioned by a friend about the matter, she ex? plained with a laugh, "Oh, I have only changed my brewer." It was Lord Beaconoftcld who first gave a title to tho Alisopps, securing a baronetcy for Henry Allsopp. Then Gladstone obtained a baronetcy for Arthur Bass. Beaconsfield then went him one better, and nominated Sir Henry Allsopp for a peerage, with tho title of Lord Hlndllp; and when Glad? stone subsequently became Prime Min? ister again, he brought about tho ele? vation of Sir Arthur Bass to the peer? age, as Lord Burton. Along with Lord Iveagh and Lord Ardllaun. owners I of tho Guinness stxiut brewing concern ! ut Dublin, they constitute the chief members of. that clement In tho House of Lords generally known as tho "Beerage." Lord Hlndllp, although a brewer by trade. Is a soldier by profession, held p. commission In the Eighth Hussars, and after putting In a" couple of years In Australia, as A. D.
