The United states has a treaty with II n-.-iti thnt dates back to 1882, and it is no secret that this treaty has been time aud auain violated by RtiBsiu in the matter of indignity to American citizens. The most recent case, which is declared to be pitiably outrageous, has Stirred up our pen pie to u determination to have uo more of it. Conurcssmau Suiwr last week introduced iu the House a resolution to nbropnte this reaty. aud it frankly recited with out any diplomatic frills the tea SOD for such net ion . The resolu tion was adopled and sent to the Senate. Then the Russian Am bassadui at Washington called on President Tafl a n d protested against the undiplomatic language of the resolution it was ton plain. matter-of-fact and-truthful. While this resolution was pending in the Semite and before that body had taken action on it. President Tafl took the matter in his own bands and diplomatically notified the Russian government that us the treaty had become obsolete it would be abrogated on December 31, 1912 its trims requiring a year's notice for such action. Some ques tion was raised as to the President's authority to do this, but Congress will uo doubt approve, as after all the main thing was to abrogate the treaty. Conurcssmau Sulzer's plainly worded resolution has served a doubly good purpose the one of pushing URide the gauzy curtain of diplomacy aud giving to the world the real reason of break ing off the treaty relations with tbe unbearable Russian mouarchy, the other of forcing the adminis tration to take heed of a cryiug evil which Mr. Taft would have dallied with but for the Sulzer res olution American citizenship must be respected and made to meau something.

Tin-candidacy of Mr. r it Ik eras precipitated year ntnl a I iKfc political oaapaign Mild il h-nnn-i at ir convention . cni ryinjj out Mime sort of au agree ment, indorsed him for President. the candidacy of Mr. Clark was Brat inggeated bj admirera outside his own Ship- who saw in him, II Speaker ot the House of Bepre tentative, a strong leader whom I it might be well to place ut the ihead of tic national ticket. Tbe situation was one that needed to be handled delicately and with dis cretion, and allowed to work Ottl lite own solution. With his con veutional indorsement, which his sponsors contend is binding on tbe State organisation though man) with reason hold that it is not Mr, Folk right to an instructed delegation from this State ought to have been conceded without j .. , , - m question. If the demand for Mr. Clark throughout the country . , , . . I should hecome so insistent and ! univereal as to demand his nomi- .... ,1 , i nation, the convention would take oogniaaoce of it and the Polk-in-1 struoted delegation from this State after seeing that Mr. Folk could not secure the nomination would without iiuy disloyalty to him naturally uo to Mr. Clark. If a demand ol this character should not develop for Mr. Clark, a dele gation from his own State, would not avail him much less if that delegation were wrested from an other who huii received a former indorsement, Thnt is the view we expressed when the siuns of this agitation began tO show themselves; also that such agitation con Id not result otherwise than in factional bicker ings, Crimination and recrimina tion among the too ardent follow ers of the two men, if not between the men themselves We regret that our views and fears hnve been too nearly verified. The indiscreet frkuids of both Mr. Folk nnd Mr. Clark have not refrained from dis paraging llie otic or the other, and indulging iu au expressed Witter ness of feeling thnt bodes uo good for the party or for the principals in their controversy. It has eveu iyne farther Some ot Mr. Folk's followers have within the pnst week charged that Mr. Clark is a stalking horse of (ioveruor Har mon of Ohio in substance that he wants the Missouri delegation so that he ran turn it over to the lat ter nt the critical moment; that both Clark and HartUOU represent the "interests.1' It is even re ported Unit Mr. Polk bat repeated I htS charge. We hup- for Mr. Folk's sake Hint this is not true, for he certain) knows that iu Mr, Clark's long, able nnd consistent public record there in nothiug up on which to base even a suspicion that he is or ever has been identi fied witfa the "interests. " He has ever been a champion of the peo ple. lf Democrats want to win in this State or in the nation they will have to exercise a little more toler ance toward each other and not al low their championship of individ ual parly leaders to cause them to lose sight of the issues aud princi ples involved, without which men and office count for very little.

Since this Government was founded we have paid thousands of millions in tariff taxes anil in Increased prices to enable employers, as. they have claimed, tn pay high wages. Wo have trusted to the employers to keep their word, with such Incidental prodding as came from labor unions and public opinion. The most UO ticeahle result of the policy has been the creation of many individual for tunes heretofore unexampled in the history of the world. Under the British system every body will know exactly what he pays and who nets the money. Un der our system must of us can only uuess ut these things. Under the British syste.n food and clothing will no) he SU be need in value. Un der nor System tbe monopolistic tax Is concealed In every price mark. In (treat Britain all classes unite to ereate a fund for humane uses, in the United States a much greater fand Is raised by taxation and con ferred upofl a seleel few to do with as th-y please and from whom no a ntinn is required. Il is poj possible t" consider our system In any of its phases without perceiving that It is economically wasteful, Industrially oppressive, politically corrupting and morally unjust and indefensible.
