TUESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 17, 1911.
JUSTICE HARLAN’S SUCCESSOR.
©F the eight remaining justices of the United States Supreme
Court three, including the chief justice, represent the South.
The late Justice Harlan also was from Kentucky. Three
are from the Middle West and West and two from the East. In
all probability, therefore, the new justice will come from the East.
The late Chief Justice Fuller was a Democrat and President Taft
appointed a Republican as his successor. If the political equities
are to be consulted the justice to be appointed should be a Demo
crat. as Justice Harlan was of that faith. There is more than mere
partisanship in a fairly equal division of the Supreme Court politi
cally. Republicans are Republicans and Democrats are Democrats
because they hold opposite view's on fundamental principles of gov
ernment and they represent two nearly equal popular forces in the
country. Therefore a great national tribunal, removed from parti
san politics, which is the conservator of the Constitution and the
laws should be so constituted that it can consider a question from
opposite standpoints and from ail points of view. A Supreme Court
all Republicans or all Democrats would not command the popular
respect that should attach to snch an exalted body. The New
Jersey Supreme Court has always been mixed politically, the rule
being that a Republican should succeed a Republican judge and a
Democrat a Democratic jndge.
A BETTER MEANS TO FLY.
THE Wright brothers began the era of aviation and they are
now trying to revolutionize it with n new machine modeled
on the principle of the bird. They believe they have nearly
accomplished their task. John P. Holland, of this city, inventor of
llie submarine, has taken great interest in aviation and his faith
has been that the power to fly through the air must he borrowed
from bird life. Mr. Holland spent many hours in the field closely
watching birds to discover the secret of nature. Fits faith has been
that when man can seize and reproduce the motive power of the
bird he can fly by means of simple adjustments about his person.
Hilt nature yields up her secrets reluctantly and man learns them by
gradual degrees and only by great sacrifices. The first step in avi
ation has already cost one hundred gallant lives, and the death
roll goes on.
STATE COMMITTEES IN OFF YEARS.
EX olT years when only members of the Legislature are elected it
lias licet, the invariable custom for the two State committees
to let the county committees do the campaign work, for the
reason that there were as many campaigns in the State as there
are counties. There never before was a State convention in an off
year iittiil the present year, because there was no need for one, and
the conventions held this year by authority of the Geran law were
simply farcical. Nor did the State committees have anything to
tio with them beyond the perfunctory action, required by statute,
of making formal calls for them. There their duty ended. The
statute places no inundate <>n the State committee to make a State
wide campaign and meddle with the plans of the county managers
and neither committee lias done so. Governor Wilson's tour of the
State outside of Essex is not a State committee assignment, hnt is
of his own volition, and. as the Governor’s addresses indicate, it has
more reference to national and presidential politics than to the
politics of the St si to.
MULATTO AND BLACK IN CUBA.
eflVi S fm back as the period of the French revolution colored
society on the Island of Santo Domingo had its blood dis
tinctions, ilie mulatto esteeming himself above the pure
black. H was this social arrogance that excited the savage ire
of the black againsl the negro of mixed blood when the French
were driven from the island. In Cuba it is now reported the
mulattoes have started a movement to exclude the negroes from
their social functions, partly because the full-blood negroes are ex
tremely ignorant and partly from the caste pride. And yet in
Cuba among the lower classes the white man and the negro had no
distinctions under the Spanish rule and they fought shoulder to
shoulder in the army of Gomez for Cuban liberation.
DYNAMITE IN THE PRESIDENT’S PATH.
THE attempt to blow up a railroad bridge at Santa Barbara,
Cal. with dynamite yesterday morning put in peril the train
on which the President was traveling. The vigilance of a
watchman foiled the villainy and perhaps prevented a great tragedy.
Whatever the motive of the miscreants, is there language strong
enough to use in execrating them?
WICKERSHAM WANTS FULL COMPETITION.
TTORN'EY GENERAL WICKERSHAM gives assurance that
no method of dissolving the tobacco trust will be sanctioned
by the government unless the plan permits of full and free
competition. If the plans tiled by the attorneys for the trust pro
vide for a return to competition they will be approved, and other
wise the attorneys will have to begin all over again. Competition
must be "without hindrance or fetter." There is nothing equivocal
in that.
JAPAN’S HAND IN IT.
JAPANESE complicity in the Chinese revolutionary movement
is charged by the Chinese newspapers. A government like
that df Japan, with a hunger for new territory and without
any scruples how it may be obtained, may be fairly charged with
fomenting revolution in a neighbor nation which has plenty of ter
ritory which it is unable to defend. When Christian nations of
Europe display such a lack of conscience in their dealings with
W'eaker ones, what can we expect of an Oriental nation in which
craft and duplicity are the leading traits?
STOKES IN THE CAMPAIGN.
FORMER GOVERNOR RTOKES is to appear on the campaign
platform in a series of addresses, and as he is avowedly a
candidate for the primary nomination for United States seu
ator nexl year he will deal with uational as well as State questions
Naturally, Mr. Stokes will take up subjects both State and national
touched on by Governor Wilson, and as he has been indirectly at
tacked in the Governor's speeches some tart retorts may be ex
pected.

Raising tlie Mnlne.
To the minor of the Kvenlng Star:
Once again the question of raising the
Maine Is brought before the people
when Congress will give another $259,
900 to finish the task. This will make
$909,909 that has been expended in the
work, and what has been done? Re
ports from Havana say that only about
one-third of the famous ship can be
taken eut and floated. It is proposed
to remove the masts to this country
and use them as a sort of a monu
ment. Many parts of bodies have been
found, but none of them will ever be
identified. Although nearly a million
dollars has been expended It is re
ported to be Improbable that any ad

dltional expenditure will definitely re
veal the cause of the explosion, and
this is the thing that the experts are
trying to find out. It would be a good
plan, In my mind. If they would destroy
what is left of the ruins and let the
matteir drop. AMERICAN.
—-O—
Middleman's Profit.
To the Editor of the Evening Star:
Everyone in the world, without re
gard to class or race, sex or station in
life, must depend upon a common :
source for food and raiment. That
source is agriculture.
It is, indeed, a vital question on
which hinges the high or low cost of
living. The astonishing differences In
the amount received by the farmer for
his products and the eventual cost to
the consumer, as represented In your
paper, is almost unbelievable. If there
is any way to do It, and the
papers seem to be the proper medium,
this middleman's profit should be wiped
out or at least reduced within reason.
Therein must surely lie one of the prin
cipal causes for the present high cost
of living. CONSUMER.

October 17, 1864, General George H. !
Thomas wrote to General William |
® Tecumseh Sherman |
discouraging the lat- i
ter in his plah for a I
march from Atlanta j
through Georgia to
the sea. If Sherman
had paid any atten
tion to the letter the
nation might have
lost “M arc h i n g
Through Georgia."
and military bands
would be limited to
the old, old airs. The
same day. however, Sherman wrote
Schofield that he proposed to make the
Interior of Georgia feel the weight of
war as it had never felt it before.

Former Attorney General Robert H.
.McCartPr is so much in the habit of
being the forefront and leading spirit
| in all the big cases in which he has
! been retained as counsel, and he has
I appeared in many of the most lmport
jant In the State, that he cuts an al
most pathetic figure during the trial
of tho $10,000,000 common stock suit
against the sugar trust and the heirs
of Henry O. Havemeyer in the Court
of Chancery. The suit Is In such shape
thnt while Mr. McCarter is counsel for
•Tamos H. Post, one of the most im
portant witnesses and a codefendant
in it, he has little to do or say. For
days he has looked like the boy whose
mother had told him that he mustn't
go near the water, but somehow or
other got- there and was dying to take
a plunge and be "In the swim."

Charles B. Dutcher is an official in
one of the big stores lfl Broad street.
Every once in a while he tells of some
of the Incidents that occur in the store
to help break the monotony of the day.
Here Is one of the newest:
"A woman walked up to me," said
Mr. Dutcher. "and asked for mes
merized cotton. Knowing she meant
mercerized, 1 directed her to the art
counter. When she had made her pur
chase she asked the young woman to
tell her where the Bremen counter was.
The young woman knew her customer
meant Hamburg, and sent her to the
embroidery department."

While oross-examtntng a witness
during a suit In the Circuit Court re
cently, Leonard .Kallsch, of the weH
known family of lawyers. Involuntarily
brought out a point which did not
help his case In the least. A Gorman
was on the stand, and Mr. Kalis oh
wanted to know If the witness had nst
been speaking to another person at a
certain time about the case. The wit
ness declared he had not.
Asked If he would deny having
talked with the other man at the time
mentioned, the witness admitted haw
ing the conversation.
Mr. Kalisch smiled triumphantly,
and In a tone implying that hie point
was as good as won declared: "Nose
tell us what you were talking about?"
"We was savin’ what a food fallow
you ain't,” answered the -fitness
readily.
