Senator laidor Rejuerof Mary,
laud, one of the leading Democratic
members nf the United States Hen
ate, died i lii- Washington reei
dence latl Monday morning after
a long illnaas. Por oonple of
arteke there bad been no hope of
liis reoovery. As the Maryland
Legislature doei not meet until
1914, tbc vacancy oocaaionad by
in- death will lie lilied by appoint
lufiit by iii" Qoveroor, who is
Republican. T h i will redoes the
hare Democratic majority in Hip
next Senate to a tie.
The papers are buy ipeoO'
luting us tn what position Mr.
Bryan will be offered in President
elect Wilson's administration, or
what position Mr. Bryan may ile
ire. hut neither of these geute
men have yet taken the public into
their confidence on tbal point. This
roocb may be iihl With reasonable
Btftainty, however Whatever
Mr. Bryan wants, it anything, he
can time. Hut lor Mr. limit),
Uoveroor Wilson would never have
i.een nominated, and it follows
would not have heen elected,
Therefore, Mr. Bryan's ability to
till any position being conceded,
('resident Wilson could not with
graoe refuse him any appointment
he would accept.
Hs anotbei meant of diverting
Bona of his burdensome
wealth, Mr, Andrew Car
negie's latest fad is to pension e
Presidents of the United states or
their widows with an annuity of
f25,000, to he paid them through
the Carnegie Corporation of New
York- The proportion is uot re
ceived with any appreciable mark
of favor throughout the oouutry,
hut rather us a hit ol effrontery
mid arrogance on the pari of swol
len fortune. If any provision is
necessary for our exl'rcsuletits to
maintain without financial embar
rassment the dignity that attache!
to their position, it is the pi BOS of
the government to provide it. and
not of some lodivldual private citi
zen, however gKBl liis wealth or
ins passion lo have his name gu
down to posterity intimately asso
oiated with an alleged pbilanthrop)
of that character. A man might,
without any sense of shame, but
with u gratsfulnCM of some pride,
accept an annuity from an appre
ciative government, when his finer
sensibilities would shrink from re
ceiving a gift from the income of
the invested fortune of a private
individual who is prompted more,
perhaps, by u desire to perpetuute
and honor bis own mime than by
nny patriotic motive or love of humanity-
We do not know whether it would
he wise or desirable for Congress
to pension our ex-President, but
this proposition of Mr. Carnegie
has started an agitation of the
question, and such a measure is
likely to be introduced during the
aession that convenes next week.
Onr ex President have been men
who knew how to dike care nl
themselves without u pension, ami
we don't Inflow that any of them
huve lowered the dignity of their
position or suffered In the esteem
of the people lor luck of financial
menus If it is desirable that our
living ex-Presidents retain a semi
official position, where they may de
vote their ktMwIedge of public ul
fans mid their experience to the
government, s:,me such plan us
thiii inggested by Mr. Bryan might
serve the put post that of admit
ting them io the deliberations of
the two branches of Congress to
advise in matters of legislation and
engage in the discotslon of public
question and measures, The sal -
an for this service would take the
place of B pension. Of course it
would be the right and proper
thing for Congress to see that tlx
widow of auy ex-President is gen
pronely provided for,
4l'H Republican friends con
Sip, sole themselves with the
tin. ught that the oombiui d
popular vote of Mr Taft and Col.
Roosevelt exceeded by a million
the popular vote of Uoveroor Wil
son, utnl reason that with hut one
candidate in the field they would
BBSil) have Won. We would not
deprive them of such consolation
as they may derive trom this fact,
but their logic is faulty. The con
ditions that caused the division of
their party would huve continued
even if Col. Roosevelt hud imt
bolted the Chicago convention and
started his hew putty, or if he had
secured the nomination at Chicago.
A large part of the Roosevelt fol
lowing would not have supported
Mr. Taft. Thousands of them
would huve voted for Uoveroor
Wilson in preference, aud other
thousands would huve refrained
from voting With Colonel
Etoosevell alone us the Republican
standard bearer, the result would
huve heen the same Thousands
of the old line or stand -pal Re
publicans would not huve supported
him; many because of the erratic
character of the man, others be
cause of the sentiment against a
third term for any man for Presi
dent Governor Wilson would
have been elected in either event.
The future of the Republican party
depends upon whether the leaders
can reorganize the scattered and di
vided elements into a homo
ganeous party. That this can be
done is improbable, und owing to
the apparent disintegration of the
old Republican party, in the read
justing process many may tillign
themselves with the party in power.
The Democratic party will be on
trial for the next four years, and if
its work is satisfactory to the
pountry its itrcngtfa will he aug
menled, It will not inter upon
this work in any huphazzard way,
but with leaders of long experience
in public affairs and many of out
uhlest mid best equipped statesman,
So it may be seen that anv hope
the routed Republican hosts may
huve nt closing up their ranks or
of the Democrats making some
grievous blunder that will discredit
them in the eyes of the people,
bangs by a slender thrend.
