OUB CANDIDATE. The result of the election of last week merely emphasizes a position which has been maintained for some time by The Evening Times that Presi dent Roosevelt must be the candidate of the republican party to succeed himself. The democratic morning daily of this city contends that the election in New York is a slap at Roosevelt. Nothing is farther from the truth. Roosevelt, like thousands of other men not only in New York but otherwise, recognized the danger to the nation of giving political aid and comfort to demagogue like Hearst, and at the name time saw that his election as governor of New York meant his nom ination for the presidency by the dem ocratic party.

He has the clear perception to see when changes in existing condi tions are needed, and in a marked degree possesses the ability to remedy rather than reform these conditions without even the slightest Jar to the conditions themselves. It is this abil ity that makes Roose\elt greater than other men who have preceeded him and who would likely follow him. He has in hand now work which he can do better than any other man, not only because he is specially qualified for the same but because he is familiar with every detail. And even with the same marvelous ability, his successor would be compelled to spend at least half his term in acquiring a merely rudimentary knowledge of the national matters which must be disposed of during the next six years. The nomination of Roosevelt by the republican national convention two years hence means the perpetuation of the republican party in power foi six years at least. The democrats are determined to secure control of the national government if it is possible to do so, and to this end they are as fully determined to defeat the nomin ation of Roosevelt and are beginning thus early in the conflict to discredit him and develop a prejudice against him, well knowing that they can have no charges which can be backed up by the truth. This explains why the democratic morning daily of this city is already stating that he has been slapped in the face by the return? from New York.

Man About Town "lt was a beautiful afternoon for a promenade in the dry goods district and he was dressed for it. Prince Al bert, cane, gloves and white waistcoat —particularly white waistcoat." said a Minneapolis man to the Man About Town. "He had started across the street near the junction, and at the great risk of dampening his immac ulate patent leather shoes above the soles had picked his way across the pavement just flooded by a passing sprinkler. "But there was an electric car com ing and he stopped to let it pass. He I was unconsciously standing almost di rectly over one of those automatic switches that startle you with their sudden snap into place automatically, unless you are used to them and know they are there. "There was not only a sudden click, but a sudden swish as well this time. A sheet of dirty water shot into the air, and as he was to the lee of the car and the wind was blowing his way, when it came down again it soaked that ample white waistcoat most pro vokingly. "The girl waiting for him had just time to see what had happened as the car hid him from her view. "She tittered. He didn't. He went back to his room and changed his waistcoat." Kaiser William An interesting character study ot the German emperor's children was recently published by a gentleman closely connected with the court, says the London Tribune. The princess are, of course, all trained as soldiers. When the youngest son was born the emperor, replying to the congratula tions of a general, replied, "Yes, gen eral, there is another recruit to be licked into shape." But great care has been taken not to stunt individu alities owing to hard-and-fast regime. The result of the emperor's careful study of his children's temperaments is seen in the difference of characteris tics in each of the princes. The crown prince is more like the Emperor Wil liam I in temperament. He possesses less of his father's somewhat compla cent conception of his own abilities, and, frankly, lacks to some extent the THE EVENING TIMES. GRAND F0&K8, N. D. Pauline desire to be "all things to all men." He is not a great reader, though from early childhood he has read mili tary history with avidity. He Is a keen sportsman, and likes his sport to have a spice of danger. Almost alone of liv ing Hohencollerns, he can be called technically and practically "a good horseman." His straight back and low bridle hand are in distinct contrast to his father's attitude on horseback, which to be truthful, is not attractive. The emperor is said not much to ap prove of his zeal for horsemanship. He once remarked to the prince: "A Ger man crown prince is not Intended to end his life in a ditch. He has other duties." Prince Eitel KrleJrich, on the con trary, is neither physically so strong as his brother nor in some ways so practical. His temperament is ideal istic and enthusiastic, and he likes to form his own judgment about men and matters. Therein he resembles his father more than does his brother. He is both the people's favorite, and, so they say, his parents also. At Pots dam the old men and women never tired of telling how the empress in sisted on nursing him herself all through his long illness (Inflamatlon of the lungs.) Prince Adalbert, is the "sailor prince," quick-witted and independ ent. The other three princess, August, Oscar and Joachim, are not yet of age, and it is scarcely ]ossibIe to form an individual judgment of them. The first named has a curious facial re semblance to the early portraits ot Frederick the Great. The little Prin cess Victoria l.ouise does not appear much in public (she is not yet 14.) but she is distinctly the most attractive of the group, and her graceful features are rather English than German. She is rather like her grandmother, the Empress Frederick, and, like her, has a talent for painting. TIip Childhood of the Wmpftn, Recently in the Scandinavian Aften bladet appeared some memories of the old man who was once major domo of the simple country house near Alfs borg where Duke Christian of Schles wig-Ilolstein brought up his children. It must have been an interesting household feudal in many of Its char acteristics and intensely modern in others. Meals were served at the same table for almost the whole household. The major domo and his fellows ate at the duke's table, where was pre served the old-world "rule of the salt." Conversation was unfettered, but poli tics were tabooed. The duke's daughters were brought up like simple children of some coun try squire. Their chief delights con sisted of "helping" on the estate. In winter they skated and in June re joiced to obtain rides on the hay wagons. The major domo was a great favorite with them, for he was always called upon to intervene when pecca dilloes threatened to involve punish ment. In return he was promised "whole gold mines when I'm grown up and a real live duchess." (The empress admits the promise, by the way.) They much disapproved of the court marshal who "kept an eye on them" when the duke and duchess were awa.v from home. He appears to have had distinctly feudal ideals of what was desired for young ladies of rank. In fact, his eye noted and disapproved of THE ANNIVERSARY SALE Only Four Days More of the Anniversary Sale. Don't delay. Special bargains in every department R.B.GRIFFITH 0. 0.

Es pecially did his mediaeval conscience revolt against the despatch of childish missives to girl friends in the neigh borhood, against surreptitious danceB with other children in the "fairy rings," and against the undignified triumphal processions on the hay wagons. Here, too, the Swedish senes chal was induced now and again to intervene, and his friendly pockets con cealed many a little note to be con veyed out of the castle past the mar shal's vigilant consorshlp.

The Emperor In Public Life, The world at large is so accustomed by now to regard William II. as an ideal to his people and a nuisance to everybody else that it is interesting to find a West Prussian newspaper venturing to criticize his public activ ity. It is still more surprising that the aforesaid paper has not brought upon its '.'prison editor" a term of im prisonment for leBs majeste. "The emperor," says the bold writer, "is much more prominent in public lire than was William I.

In this latter connection his interfer ence, it may be observed, has not al ways been happy in its results. Over the crosB of the Gedachtnis Kirche, in Charlottenburg, rises an iron rod with, a star—a huge monstrosity due to the fact that when revising the architect's plans the emperor intended to make a note about the cross, and put a star with a line pointing to the cross. Then he forgot to add the note, but the architect did not forget to add the star. The result is ghastly.
