MASSACHUSETTS, Ohio and New Jersey went democratic
for the same reason that . California went republican, and
this seeming paradox is matter of very simple explanation.
1 In those great eastern commonwealths the
standpatters were in full control of the repub
lican party machinery. They named the can
didates and ran the government as a usual
thing. In those states the insurgent repub
licans nau nu urbanization, but the spirit was there just as strong
as in Kansas or California, and the revolt followed as a necessary
consequence, with the difference that the spirit of insurgency took
th'c nearest way out by going over to the democratic party. ;
In Ohio the republican state convention was dominated abso
; lutely by the standpatters. They would not listen to James R.
1 Garfield and nominated for governor a close friend of J. B. Foraker,
. one time senator and attorney for Standard oil. They even let
Foraker take the stump as a representative of the republican party.
In Massachusetts the trail of Senator Lodge was all over the
party. Lodge is the most astute and industrious of standpatters.
The woolen and cotton schedules in the tariff that have done so
much to increase the cost of. the necessaries of life were- largely, his
work. Although these schedules were intended to , bring
.advantage to Massachusetts manufacturers, that did not prevent the
New England conscience, from sizing up Lodge pretty closely:
Whether the reversal of political form has gone to the extent jpf
electing a democratic legislature to name Lodge's successor 'is
uncertain, but there is no doubt that Draper's defeat for governor
Xew Jersey has been for years the home of corrupt politics —
the very worst in America — under republican rule. The democrats
nominated a clean man of the highest ability and a very notable
campaigner in Dr. Woodrow Wilson, formerly president of Princeton
. university, and his election followed as a matter of course.
Similar results are seen almost everywhere, and if the stand
patters have gained any victories, either in the east or in the west,
they are scarcely visible to the. naked eye.

• Along the Line
THE perpetual squabble that appears to rage among constituent
bureaus and personnel of the navy department is advanced as
the inspiring cause for certain so called "reforms" which Secre
tary Meyer, it is said, will' propose for action
by congress.
The ancient feud between the staff and
the line and the constantly recurring hostilities
of a personal sort between the pay and con
struction bureaus on one side and the men who sail the ships- on
the other appear to have got on the secretary's nerves until he is
ready to cry "A plague on both; your houses" and is preparing to
recommend that the contending factions be compelled to live. under
one official roof in the hope, that closer association may promote a
The secretary contemplates a merger of the pay and construc
tion personnel with the line on a plan somewhat similar to that
which some years ago put the naval engineers on the same footing
with other officers of the line. That reform, if it can be called sucl),
has not worked well, and there is less reason to suppose that the
secretary's proposed reforms^ would be more successful:" >> ' '5^K:
It is obviously a retrograde policy for the reason that this is
an age of specialization. It is absurd to send a man who has learned
tils business as a navigating officer or an expert in ballistics "down :
stairs" — to use a landlubber's term— to\ run the engines. If, on the
other hand, the. men are not interchangeable'then the merger is
chiefly a matter of epaulets. "• '-V : ' ' --V-1..'
The same reasoning applies 'with even', greater; force to tfye
construction corps, constituted of men "with a special 1 training for
their work. Of course, -these specialists- 'must be continued (in
charge of the designing and ibuilding of the ships, and a merger as
such with the line would necessarily be- merely a matter of names
and titles. " X

:>A S it affected the New York election the political situation
L\ differed from that in any other state. "Big business" hates
Roosevelt and wanted to punish and destroy him politically.
Therefore an alliance, offensive and defensive,
was effected with Tammany, and all the guns
the corrupt metropolitan press were trained
on the colonel. The most sanctimonious
equally with the most cynical and abandoned
of these united in the chorus.
It was amusing enough in a way to people. who had watched
these newspapers cursing the petty. bosses in control of the republican
machine when these agile apostles of "big business" turned their
preaching against Roosevelt, the minute he had driven those same
bosses from control. The colonel was compounded of equal parts
of Caesar and Satan.
Naturally this conjunction of circumstances inspires much specu
lation concernng its effect on Roosevelt's place in 'the affections
of. his countrymen. Collier's Weekly, writing, before election,
expounded an odd and remarkable "theory in this relation as it
might affect the national campaign in 1912. ,We quote :
If Stimson is* beaten, as a "lesson"' to Roosevelt, the chances of the
colonel's running in 1912 will be increased, because^ to; the rest -of the
country the line between the old wing of the republican, party and the
new will be made more sharp, a situation the most likely to bring Roose
velt overwhelmingly to the front If Stimson wins, on. the other hand,
: and the old guard is put down,, the chance of successfully
raotying along independent lines will be" much' increased, and lit he does
' prove himself progressive, steady and independent from now until the
.\u25a0 spring of 1912 we fancy Colonel Roosevelt will earnestly support- him"
for the nomination: The former president's only/ sufficient reason^ for
running himself again would be that the tide \vas toward reaction^ and

Republican Party of California
From the Domination of Corrupt Interests
. A S THE result of Tuesday^s election Cali-. i
/-\ fornia, stands "•'' shoulder to shoulder :
.with Kansas, 1 \u25a0 Minnesota,
Washington and the other great common
wealths of the nation pledged to the; insurgent
cause and enlisted for the war. :-The vital sense
and spirit of that movement is to redeem the
republicanpartyfrom the of. cor- '
rupt interests. It is a revolt olthe plain people,
and the men - enlisted in ihis struggle must -
and will- direct 'the policies of 'the party rrf v
the;;next national, election. They are the
aggressive, vital force in tthe party.
Hiram Johnson, leader of the; California
insurgents, is not a politician nor an x office. ...;
seeker.. He'is not skilled in trades and bar- ~
gains, nor versed in the petty tricks of poli
tics. He ; is simply a" downright, earnest
follower of and we believe it will
be admitted without dispute that he is a first
class; fighting man. It may be regarded as
an illustration of his character that when the
newspaper photographers w^ant to catch him ,
in a telling attitude they invariably seize the
moment of his favorite gesture with his fists ,
upraised and clinched, driving home an argu-
are therefore guided more by hatred than by reason, for they are. really
taking steps to make more probable the outcome, which they most deplore.
This is .interesting,, but, as it seems, topsy-turvy speculation.
Roosevelt will always be a great and inspiring figure in the^-eyes
of the American pedple, and the enmity. of .Tammany .and "big
business" will only serve to make, warmer their affection for the
colonel, but at the same time we have no expectation that he will
ever again be a candidate for office. •
Sereno Payne's majority has been revised downward.
Julius says we may now be Kahn-fident of the Panama-Pacific expo-
Xews from Danville, 111.: Uncle Joe Cannon will not be a candidate for
re-election as speaker next year. ,; > '-\u25a0:
"Too Much Johnson" is still playing to diminishing' returns at the demo
cratic stale central, committee's headquarters.
If Dr. D. E. Blackburn of Pcscadero had been indicted- a .few." more -times
he might have been elected king of his district.

or any other woman whom they know, are earning
their bread and-. butter, or even a little jam to go with
\u25a0bread and butter.; already furnished, one girl has written

promising young' rabbit, families simply lay down land died. But after, a few
months' experience L know the why and wherefore of a. rabbit's demise, and
it doesn't happen again if I can prevent. ...
"The work' means perhaps -two hours a . day of work and many : hours of

THIS FISH YARN
IS NOT SO BAD
ALTHOUGH it Is late in the season
for fish stories -local railroadmen
have not given up the attempt to
beat the fish story told diTrlng the sum
mer by 11. K. Gregory, assistant gen
eral passenger agent of the Santa Fe. .
William F. Schmidt, general western
agent for the Missouri Pacific, who
returned Monday froro^Los Angeles,
where he had been with Richard Boas,
foreign freight agent for that road and
other Gould lines, brought home a fish
story — absolutely true in every detail.
It # all happened at Catallna island.
Schmidt, Boas, a friend and the owner
of the launch went about six miles out
ofAvalon to catch big fish. Boas re
fused to believe the stories of big fish
tcrld to him by Schmidt and he would
not cast a line until he had seen
Schmidt and the other guest haul in
something. : It was only a few minutes
when-Sch-midt hooked a big one; and
after- . playing it about 10 minutes
-brought it close- to ; they side' of the
launch. in. order. -to use the gaff.
Just at this stage of the excitement
— and there was much excitement in
the launch — a huge shark went tearing
through the water, and before the gaff
could be used half of the fish disap
peared in the jaws of the man eater.
The remainder of the fish was hauled
into the launch and used as' bait. It
was excellent bait— particularly for
sharks— for in a few minutes Schmidt
had "a shark on the end of his line.
The shark -fought for several minutes
before It. succeeded : in breaking
Schmidt's lino: and gaining its freedom.
When the party returned to Avalon
they were invited to go several miles
across the ialancl and shoot mountain
goats. All were willing with the ex
ception of Boas, who had an engage
ment in Los Angeles and who could not
become enthusiastic, because, as he
expressed it:
"Even if I should shoot one of these
mountain ; goats an elephant would
probably come up from behind and bite
it in two." , :?;.;-.

Ihe roct rhilosopher
Last eve I sought the church and heard a gifted
pastor preach the Word. He talked of men whose
days were ocr two thousand
years ago or more. He talked
of k^ngs whose bones were dust,
whose scepters were reduced to
rust so long* ago their stories
: & seem like fragments of a sum
mer dream. He said no word of those who strive
in this old world, intense, alive, who fight their
sbattles every day, obscurely, in their feeble way.
I'd just as soon be in the dark concerning Father
Noah's ark; I care not for the tents of Baal, or*
Joseph's corn, or Jonah's whale; I want to hear myj.
pastor talk about the people on this block, whose lives are full ot
stings and smarts, whose problems often break their hearts. I'd
rather learn some way to cheer some hopeless toiler struggling here,
than learn how Pharaoh blew his dough about five thousand years
ago. The dust of kings in ancient ground is worth a half a cent a
pound; and Ashu'rs widows' tears were dried before old Julius
Caesar died; the kings of which my pastor talks are dead as Adam's
brindled ox, but all around us there are cries, and wringing hands
and weeping eyes. He'll have to get his text on straight, and bring
his gospel up to date. <*****. im* /a .**

distract or confuse.
The result of the vote in San Francisco
confirms the wisdom of this course. There
was- confident expectation in the democratic
camp that this city would give a great
plurality to Mr. Bell, but in the result he is
defeated in his stronghold. In Los Angeles,
on the other hand, the champions of the pro
gressive cause suffered themselves to be dis
tracted by a bolting movement on a local office,
with resulting creation of angry animosities,
of which the reactionary forces took the fullest
advantage. The coimt of votes in Los Angeles
tells/ the tale, showing material republican
losses? It does not affect the general result,
but if the democratic expectations in San
Francisco had been fulfilled the outcome in
Los Angeles might have been disastrous. More
than any other community Los Angeles was
relied upon as the invincible fortress of the
cause, 'but that city fell down. It will be all
right another tinrc. This was merely a
moment? of weakness, a temporary aberration.
