PARKER'S PROSPECTS
The prediction of The Globe that
Judge Parker would grow in strength
from the moment his letter of accept
ance was set before the people, and
that his cause would gain immeasur
ably by his personal assumption of
leadership in the campaign, is being
fully verified. From every source
come consenting reports that the cause
of national Democracy is making
steady but irresistible headway. The
Parker wave is rising fast in the East,
and it will grow in volume and in force
from this until the day of election.
This campaign is not to be judged
by others, especially by its two imme
diate predecessors. In these the wjiole
country was stirred by the appear
ance of new issues in which every man
felt himself vitally interested, and no
one could tell what the sentiment of
the particular community would be.
Old political associations were thrown
aside, and it was quite possible that
by vigorous campaigning states for
merly Democratic might be carried by
the Republicans and states formerly
Republican might swing heavily into
the Democratic column. Therefore,
there was an air of uncertainty over
the nation. Therefore, every state and
almost every county was good fighting
ground, and activity was limited by no
lines of section and determined by no
previous political affiliation.
This year all is different. The par
ties are lined up against each other, as
they have been for the last thirty
years, with a solid wedge of votes sure
ly Republican and another solid wedge
as surely Democratic, the balance of
power being held by the states right
fully termed doubtful. Hence those
living in states reasonably certain to
give either Republican or Democratic
majorities are scarcely aware that a
national campaign is going on. The
fierce^fighting is conducted where each
party feels that it has a fair chance to
win.
One state has already, we think, been
fairly removed from the doubtful col
umn, if ever it should have been piaeed
there. The best advices from Repub
lican as well as from Democratic
sources show that Judge Parker will
carry New York. Everybody admits it.
The lack of interest that has been ob
served and noted is partly imaginary,
being the result of a superficial com
parison with the intense excitement of
preceding national campaigns, and
partly due to the fact that the public
mind is already fairly settled. You
cannot have a howling hot campaign
where one side is already beaten, and
the Republicans know that they have
lost New York. Well informed Demo
crats claim that the Democratic ma
jority in the state will rise as high as
75,000. We do not look for such a rev
olution as that, but we do believe that
the New York electoral vote is as safe
for Judge Parker as is that of Mis
sissippi.
While Indiana is closer, the balance
of opinion there swings also to the
Democratic side. The state will be
contested more closely than any other
in the country. The earlier polls show
ed a slight preponderance in favor of
the Democrats, and this has not been
diminished. During the last weeks of
the campaign the effect of the sober
second thought of the people and the
rising tide in favor of Judge Parker
will settle the state firmly, we believe,
on the Democratic side. If this be so,
and the prophecy comes mot of excited
sentiment but of dispassionate judg
ment, then there are enough electoral
votes in sight to make Judge Parker
president:
One of the encouraging and convinc
ing signs of the times is the complete
harmony among Democrats everywhere
and their united determination to win.
This is partly the product of party
loyalty and partly a consequence of
Judge Parker's splendid ability as a
leader and his tact in dealing with
men. We have already likened him in
this respect to President McKinley, and
he has justified the comparison. With
his presence in New York city, diffi
culties and disagreements faded out of
sight. Rivalries and jealousies were
ended and each man fell loyally and
readily into his proper place. We hear
no more of hair pulling between fac
tions in New York city. We find no
more trouble about campaign managers
or advisers East or West. Sheehan and
McCarren and Hill, Gorman and Tag
gart, are all in line and are working in
perfect and harmonious co-operation.
This union for the party has a still
wider scope. Republicans are alarmed
by the announcement that Mr. Bryan
will take the field in Indiana and Illi
nois and deliver a series of powerful
speeches to the people in those states
during the remainder of the campaign.
They are equally disappointed by the
announcement made by Mr. Hearst to
Democratic clubs everywhere, that
their first duty is to turn in and sup
port the ticket and place the Demo
cratic party in power. Whatever dif
ferences have existed in the past are
smoothed away and forgotten. Na
tional Democracy presents a united
front, with a leader in charge who
knows how to lead. This is not a cam
paign of declamation, but of carefully
planned, intelligent, earnest work; and
it is going to win.

PAYNE AND HIS SUCCESSOR
The kind hearted scribe, following
the old maxim, will wish to say little
concerning Henry C. Payne. He, like
so many men prominent in public life,
was a man of admirable personal char
acteristics. He was able, he was kind
hearted, he was loyal to his friends.
But he was also a devotee of the evil
political system that believes in fa
voritism, in inequality, in the building
up of political machines and all the
public evils that these imply. There
fore, on the public side, his life is not
one to call for comment from those
who wish to speak only good of the
dead.
It is one of the saddest facts in
American public life that so many men
should make this sharp distinction be
tween public and private morality.
There are thousands of men, not a few
of them high in place, honored in office
and powerful in their parties, who lead
double lives. They have persuaded
themselves that party organization and
party Success require and justify all
kinds of moral compromises. For this
they are ready to deny the elementary
rules of conduct; for this they frater
nize with boodlers and thugs; for this
they permit to pass through their
hands a continuous stream of dirty
money; and, although above possible
reach of a bribe themselves, manage
political affairs on a basis of wholesale
corruption.
Whatever reproach may rest upon
the late postmaster general in this re
spect applies in double measure to his
official chief. Mr. Payne was required
to do certain things in the postofflce
department for the interest and ad
vantage of the president in this cam
paign. He did them. His reputed suc
cessor can be depended upon to carry
on the same policy with a finer art of
concealment. Mr. Cortelyou has given
us a taste of his quality alreadj' at the
head of the department of commerce.
Well has he aided and abetted the
president in the policy of addition, di
vision and silence.
Under his auspices the misleading
report on wages and cost of living was
issued at government expense as a
campaign document. Under him sta
tistics relating to the operation of the
beef trust and various railroad sys
tems have been gathered, and are be
ing held as a club over the heads of
rich and influential men. From Repub
lican news sources the people were ad
vised within a da"y or two that Mr.
Cortelyou and the president are debat
ing what figures to give out and what
to withhold. The announcement is
hardly less than disgraceful. The in
formation belongs to the public. If it
is of such character that legal pro
ceedings against the trusts will be
jeopardized by its publication, then let
legal proceedings begin.
The fact that nothing is done except
to kill information that could be used
to force influential men and capitalists
into line, to make them supporters of
the administration as the price of their
immunity from prosecution, is plain
and notorious. If Mr. Cortelyou is, the
man for this job, as he seems to be,
he is also the man for the job turned
over to the late Mr. Payne. We may
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1904
be well assured that he will feel no
squeamishness in running the postal
department for the good of the admin
istration.
Of course the Hon. John C. Spooner.
as a party man, will vote for the Hon.
Robert M. La Follette, but he won't
wait for the moving picture man to
get a shot at him while he is doing it.
HIS MIBTAKE
It has taken but/few days to prove
that R. C. Dunn and his managers
made the biggest mistake of their
whole campaign when they tried swap
ping horses while crossing a stream.
The character of the campaign they
waged prior to the convention and the
enmities they then aroused were
scarcely more effective in alienating a
portion of their friends and making
others lukewarm than this evidence of
lamentable weakness. The sum tptal
of its addition to the Dunn forces is
Mr. Martin, and the losses are legion.
The thing that gave Dunn most of
his strength in the state, that made
his friends stand by him with wond"er
ful tenacity, was the belief that he was
equally sure to stand by them. He has
been noted for saying that he would
rather go down to defeat with a friend
than to victory with an enemy; and
that sort of spirit evokes considerable
enthusiasm in politics. This was a big
portion of his capital, and he traded it
away for a gold brick last week. When
he threw down a portion-of those who
had stood by him from first to last,
who had borne the burden and heat of
the campaign and been sorely,abused
for it, in order that he might make way
for a reconciliation with those who had
opposed him from the outset and emp
tied all the vials of their wrath upon
his head, he showed himself in a new
light. This was not the Bob Dunn that
the people thought they knew, and they
turned from him accordingly.
This move lias not rescued the Re
publican party of this state from its
fatal situation. It has only plunged it
deeper in the mire. It would never
have been made but for a certainty of
defeat. Seeing that all was lost unless
something could be done, the Dunn
, managers took this desperate measure
in the hope of enticing back the mu
tinous element in the party. They have
absolutely failed. With the exception
of Martin, nobody has gone back. The
other opponents of Dunn are more bit-,
ter and more outspoken than they were
before, while hosts of his old friends
are now ready to turn their backs upon
him because they no longer believe in
his hitherto unquestioned loyalty. His
defeat was more than probable before,
but it is certain now.
For St. Louis the worst. is yet to
come. Saturday 1s Chicago day at the

THE WISCONSIN DECISION
The decision by the supreme court
of Wisconsin that the La Follette wing
of the Republican party is regular and
entitled to place in the Republican col
umn of the ballot will have no appre
ciable effect on the campaign in that
state. A judicial determination of the
controversy between the half-breeds
and the stalwarts in favor of the half
breeds will carry no conviction to the
head or heart of the stalwart. The
other day he was out for a fight, hop
ing to get the best of the legal argu
ment. Now he is out for a fight.
The action of the supreme court is
interesting principally because it re
verses the decision of the Republican
national committee. It was openly
charged at the time of the Republican
convention that Spooner and his
friends, being closer to the powers that
be in the national organization, were
able to compel the recognition of thejr
wing of the party. Now the charge
will be made that the supreme court of
the state was influenced in its decision
by its preferences. Be this latter as it
may, it is certain that the supreme
court has accepted as the facts in the
case the allegations which the na
tional committee rejected as untrue.
Under the decision eleven of the elect
ors who had previously declared their
intention of going on the ticket with
the La Follette contingent will now be
regular, but there is little hope that the
men who have ■toeen fighting La Fol
lette will vote for anybody standing on
the ballot as his man.
When thieves fall out an appeal to
the supreme court is not of much avail
and will not serve to prevent honest
men getting their dues. George W.
Peck may now read his title clear to
the governorship of Wisconsin, and as
that half of the Republican party
which is aligned with Spooner will not
vote for the La Follette-Roosevelt
electors, Mr. Taggart is no longer com
pelled to class Wisconsin as among the
states that are merely "possibly" Dem
ocratic.
John Stone Pardee, the compiler of
"Roosevelt on Our Presidents," wnich
appeared in yesterday's Globe, has a
facility in contrasts, which should ap
peal to the Republicans of Red Wing—
and some other, sections.
Obviously the gentlemen who are de
ploring the lack of vitality in the cam
paign have not observed the move
ments of Captain-Judge-Court Com
missioner Galllck.
It now appears that the 177 families
of exalted rank who live in Chicago
mostly rankle in the breasts of their
neighbors.
Contemporary Comment I
Justice Brewer's Error
Mr. Justice Brewer, of the supreme
court, will feet into trouble if re keeps
on talking as he did yesterday at St.
Louis about " the constitution vs. the
Republican policy in the Philippines.
Why. he apparently takes the same
view as Judge Parker! This is in flat
violation of the* only common law that
the president knows —the law, namely.
that good Republicans must swallow
their convictions and support all that
he does. Judge Brewer should remem
ber that hV Svas a Republican before
he_was a ?dfist. He was not put on
the bench to furnish aid and comfort
to the Democrats. Imagine a Repub
lican senate ever confirming his ap
pointment to the supreme court if
it had imagined that he would balk
at finding the law for whatever the
party wanted to do! The justice, we
dare say, would draw himself up if
any suggestion were made to him that
he ought to be a partisan on the bench,
and would ruffle in Lord Coke's style
about doing "as becometh a judge:"
but he should understand that we are
changing all that in these high-flying
days when a president announces that
he will pay no attention to any con
stitutional provision which, in his
.opinion, would reduce him to "im
potence?'—New York Evening Post.
A Clean Knockout
As would be expected, there arc
abundant signs of writhing among the
friends of President Roosevelt on ac
count of the stinging passage in Judge
Parker's letter of acceptance exposing
the president's blundering touching the
operation of the common law by the
federal courts as a remedy against
monopolies.
Up to the present time it does not
appear that the defenders of President
Roosevelt's audacious contradiction of
Judge Parker'a original statement have
done hku any service. But they have
done a service to the American people.
At this juncture it is a real service to
demonstrate anew that the Republican
candidate* fox- president is a person
whose temperamental pugnacity and
habit of Speech and action before he
knows his^ ground are elements of in
capacity and'of national peril in the
office of; - cfcief magistrate.—Boston

therefore,; hate little to fear on this
score. But when H comes to the un
certain actions of a president whose
hobby seems to be to "stir up some
thing," whose dominant idea is «.o cre
ate excitement, not because any good
will come out of it, but solely because
he will be talked about, the manu
facturer and the business man gener
ally may well doubt whether Mr.
Roosevelt is theltind of man the lTnit
ed States wants at its head. —Balti-

What the Editors Say
The letter of acceptance of Judge
Parker, Democratic nominee for presi
dent, is one of the best and most com
prehensive state papers we have been
permitted to read since the days of the
great Lincoln. Lucid, terse and show
ing a decided interest in the questions
discussed, the letter is worthy of th»
careful perusal and the candid exam
ination of every citizen of the great re
public. If elected and proves himself
as sincere for the country's yfcital in
terests as his letter seems to indicate,
he will be hailed as a savior, and will
earn a niche in the temple of fame be
side the father of his country and the
adored Lincoln.—Cuss Lake Times.
Senator Nelson, unlike Senator Conk
ling-, is. apparently, not out of criminal
practice. In his brief, defending tres
pass, profanity and other political vir
tues peculiar to the Dave Clough re
gime under which he himself was ele
vated to the United States senate, it is
but natural that his mind should dwell
with particular stress upon the influ
ence of the chief executive, that is, his
"pull" in his relations to and connec
tions with the legislature. The defense
could not have been intrusted to a
lawyer better qualified by birth and ex
perience in this particular.—Midway
News.
Mr. Heatwole is in favor of tariff re
form and is opposed to trust and cor
poration rule in nation and state. That
is the reason the party bosses want
none of him. If the Republican voters
of Minnesota had it to do over again
would they nominate R. C. Dunn for
govexnor, after knowing what they do
now? There is reason to believe not.
Thousand? of them will seek to rectify
that error by voting for his opponent
at the election. —Duluth Herald.
Mr. Davis cannot help being eighty
years of age, nor should the mere fact
that he has accumulated $40,000,000
for a rainy day be held against him as
a candidate. Opportunity simply came
late. Had fate arranged that the vice
presidential offer had come to him
when only seventy-nine years old or
when his- bank savings amounted to
but $39,000,000, it is probable that he
would have, in the same spirit, con
cluded to accept, for the good of the
country.—Faribault Journal.
One thirrg is certain and that is, the
Democratic candidate for governor of
Minnesota doesn't have to waste a mo
ment in explaining anything. He is a
clean man and challenges your admira
tion. Any man may cast his vote for
him regardless of politics and feel that
he has done himself or his state no in
justice. That is why so many Repub
licans are going to vote for John A.
Johnson for governor.—Le Sueur Sen
tinel.
We notice a good many Republican
papers are publishing a voluminous
"reply" by Bob Dunn to the charges

fairness these papers should first have
published the charges themselves. —

An exchange warns people not to eat

public health will not be endangered.—

Among the Merrymakers
Beecher and "the Rooster"
That Henry Ward Beecher was spared
much embarrassment by his quickness at
repartee is illustrated by the following
One evening, as he was in the midst of
an impassioned speech, someone attempt
ed to interrupt him by suddenly crow
ing like a rooster. It was done to perfec
tion; a number of people laughed in spite
of themselves, and the speaker's friends
felt that in a moment the whole effect
of the meeting and of Mr. Beecher's thrill
ing appeals might be lost. The orator,
however, was equal to the occasion. He
stopped, listened till the crowing ceased,
and then, with a look of surprise, pulled
out his watch.
"Morning already!" he said; "my watch
is only at 10. But there can be no mis
take about it. The instincts of the lower
animals are infallible."
There was a roar %t laughter. The
"lower animal" in the gallery collapsed,
and Mr. Beecher was able to resume as if
nothing had occurred. —Success.
Helping His Memory
A lawyer in a Western city once went
to another part of the country on business.
On arriving at his destination He found
he had forgotten the name of the firm he
had come to see. and had left all enlight
ening memoranda in his desk.
After wasting valuable time in useless
efforts to remember, he telegraphed home
to his partner for the necessary informa
tion. He got it, and more.

At St. Paul Theaters
Fresh from its record" run of twenty
three weeks in Chicago, the musical
comedy, "The Royal Chef," will make
its bow to the theater-goers of this
city tonight at the Metropolitan. This
merry melange of hilarious harmony
produced by the same cast of come
dians and singers and the beauty cho
rus which earned such high praise at
the hands of the press in Chicago and j
New York, will be in evidence here. '
This latest musical comedy is said to
be brimfull of fun. The costuming is
said to be elaborate.
The "Bird Center Cartoons" readily
adapt themselves to dramatization. A
new comedy drama, "Bird Center," has
for its basis this series of cartoons and
all of the familiar characters in their
quaint environment have been utilized
by the playwright. The popular un
dertaker, the garrulous veteran, the
town "frivoller," who flirts-with all the
girls; the city sport who cuts him out;
the mysterious stranger; the autocratic
social leader who sets all the fashions;
the photographer's wife, with lofty
ideals and esthetic views—in fact, all
of the familiar figures in the series of
cartoons will be seen in the new play
at the Metropolitan the first half of
next week, commencing Sunday night.
In magnitude, "The Pit," which will
be given at the Metropolitan opera
house next Thursday night, is said to
surpass anything ever attempted by
William A. Brady. This dramatization
of Frank Norris' novel has been a pro
nounced success in New York and Chi
cago. It is built upon the same lines as
the book, and is said to be intensely in
teresting to those who have never read
of, or ventured into the whirlpool of
speculation and life on 'change.
Two large audiences attended the
Grand yesterday afternoon and even
ing to witness "The Queen of the High
way." There will be but four more
performances, including a matinee
Saturday at 2:30.
Nat M. Wills will be seen at the
Grand at next Sunday's matinee in the
musical comedy, "A Son of Rest." Mr.
Wills, it will be remembered, was the
feature of the Orpheum vaudeville
show that was here the season before
last.
Undoubtedly the best show of the
season is presented by Irwin's "Ma
jesties" at the Star this week. The olio
is of the best order, including five
women tumblers and Larry McCall,
who are worth the price of admission
alone. Ladies' matinee tomorrow.
BISHOP IS LIBERAL
Doane, of Aibany, Advises the
Episcopal Church
BOSTON, Mass., Oct. 5. —The arch
bishop of Canterbury and bishops
from many parts of the world attended
the opening session of the general tri
ennial convention of the Episcopal
church here. The English primate was
last in a long procession of dignitaries
which passed up the broad aisle of
Trinity church, where opening services
were held in the presence of an im
mense congregation. He recited one
of the prayers in the office of holy com
munion and read the gospel. The cele
brant was the Rt. Rev. Daniel S. Tut
tle, of Missouri, presiding bishop; the
gospeller was Rt. Rev. James Car
michael, bishop (Toudjuator of Montreal,
and the preacher Bishop Doane, of Al
bany, N. Y.
Bishop Doane welcomed the arch
bishop of Canterbury and then devoted
a large part of his sermon to the di
visions in Christendom. He discussed
the barriers which separate the Angli
can church from other denominations
and how they must to some extent be
broken down. While the recognition of
papal supremacy was impossible, he
thought the church might easily recog
nize the primacy of the bishop of
Rome, because of the antiquity of the
Roman see. He urged a broadening of
the church's sphere.
At the opening of the house of dep
uties Session Dr. H. MoKim, of Wash
ington, D. C, was selected chairman
over Rev. Charles H. Hutch, of Con
cord, the candidate of the high church
party. Bishop William |Lawrence, of
Massachusetts, was chosen chairman
of the house of bishops by unanimous
vote.
SAYS BRITISH EMPIRE
MAY DISINTEGRATE
Mr. Chamberlain Draws a Doleful Pic-
ture of English Agriculture
LONDON, Oct. 5. —Joseph Chamber
lain reopened his fiscal campaign at
Luton, Bedfordshire, tonight. He
dwelt on the agricultural situation and
painted a gloomy picture of present
conditions, predicting that there is
worse to come. He said agriculture
had been crippled and values shrunk
by hundreds *of millions. The capita!
of famers had fallen $1,000,000,000.
There are 1,000,000 fewer laborers in
there country now than there were
in 1851, and 13,000,000 people are un
derfed, while the people of America,
Germany and other foreign countries
are prosperous and surpassing Great
Britain in every line of trade and bus
iness. He said that to deny existing
conditions was impossible and to ig
nore them would be criminal.
He did not want the protection of
fifty years ago, but he did want to
make foreigners pay toll on shipments
to the British market where they com
peted with British workmen, and un
less Great Britain and her colonies
worked together there Was nothing in
sight but disintegration of the empire.

LOSES SOME liD
Acres That Were Transferred In
1903 Go Back to Cass
Lake District
WASHINGTON, D. C. Oct. s.—Upon
the recommendation of Secretary of
the Interior Hitchcock the president
has signed an order restoring to the
Cass Leke (Minn.) land district cer
tain lands which were transferred to
the Duluth district by executive order
of May 29, 1903. This action of the
president disposes of a question which
has been under consideration in the in
terior department for some time. When
the transfer was made under the for
mer order it was thought that it would
be to the advantage of the public at
large, but since then it has been dem
onstrated that because of the ac
Bibilfty of Cass L;tke the public inter
ests would be best subserved by re
voking the order of 1903 and again
placing the lands referred to under the
jurisdiction of that district.
