An astonishing editorial appeared
in a New York paper recently. It
advocated the nomination of a big
man for vice-president, contrary to
the usual custom of devoting that
nomination to making sure the elec
toral vote of some uncertaiistate by
playing on its local pride.
We can remember only one vice,
presidential nomination not disposed
of. on that idea. Governor Roosevelt
of New York was named on the Mc
Kinley ticket because Tom Piatt
wanted to get rid of him in New
York. The easy boss found him un
comfortable in his political business.
Hanna, at that time director-general
or patronage for McKinley, had no
desire for Roosevelt's selection, but
was won over by party policy argu
ments. Governor Roosevelt himself
was not itching to be shelved in the
vice-presidency, but again expedi
And now comes the suggestion
that no uncertain quantity be chos
en for second place on the Chicago
ticket. It is a good one. It might
be made a rule of national conven
tions that every man seeking the
presidential nomination should
pledge to accept seconu place if de
feated for the first honor. That
would usually insure the selection
of the two strongest men before the
convention a consummation dc-
voutlv to be wished.

Unlike many strong partisans, wo
do not believe Attorney General Pal
mer should be blamed for everything.
Th'ere are probably some conditions
in this country today which would
baffle an attorney general who was
not running for president.
