$ The Commoner. NOVEMBER 4," 1010 13 hearted plea for the eleciien of Mr. Kern, a plea in which all the great issues were discussed, and as such was in striking contrast with the speech delivered last week from the game platform .in advocacy of the election of Mr. Beveridge. TherQ were no dodging and evading, no mere generalities, no homilies in praise of virtues which all admit to be admirable. Mr. Bryan, unlike Mr. Beveridge's champion, discussed controverted questions. And ho car ried his audience with him. Those who were not fortunate enough to hear the spoech should read it. The man who begins it will hardly And It possible to lay It down till he has finished it. A LATE DISCLAIMER Mr. Hoosevelt now says that had that control (of the Saratoga conven tion) been absolute, the tariff plank would have been different. The de- claimer comes too late. Theodore Mr. Roosevelt's Outlook article, which is in substance what ho said at Sioux Falls. The membors of Mr. Roosevelt's committee did not con cern themselves with the failure of the Payne tariff to glvo "general sat isfaction." They wero satisfied with it, and said so. Through them Mr. Roosevelt said so. It is for this rea son that the republican insurgents of the west accuso him of surrendering to "the bandits of plutocracy." It is our opinion that Mr. Roosevelt will have to stand on the tariff plank of his platform. New York Times. SHIP SUBSIDY SILENCE The New York Commercial, which la one of the most consistent and ncr- slstent boosters of the ship subsidy graft In the country, Is somewhat dis turbed at the trend of political events. It saysr "It Is amazing that in a congres sional campaign like the present one, wherein a mighty struggle is going Roosevelt made up the committee on on for political control of the next resolutions which rlrn.ft.prt that, tariff I .-...,, t i.nnMniiflvna nnn Tinnrn plank. One minute before he named the members of the committee ho took the already prepared typewrit ten list and struck off the names of several delegates who had opposed his wishes during the debate, and substituted for them the names of other delegates, who could be fully trusted to do his bidding. It was his committee. "When tho platform was reported to the conven tion no word of dissent was heard from him. It was open to him to movo an amendment. He was per fectly free to declare, if so minded, that a tariff plank phrased to meet the approval of Cannon and Payne and Aldrich would not be a good thing for the republican party in New York this year. He did nothing of the kind. The platform was adopted, it stands as the republican paTty's declaration of policy. It is as much Mr. Roosevelt's platform as it would have been had he written it; for the men who did write it were his close friends and appointees. He accepted tho platform, tariff plank and all, and he spoke no word in criticism of it, he gave no intimation that he would have had it otherwise until after his interview with tho distin guished insurgent from Iowa. At Carnegie hall he had a fine op portunity to tell the men of the re publican league In what way or ways he would have had the tariff planlc differently drawn. But instead of that he spoke in praise of the plat form, of the whole platform. Even in the Outlook he had said: "I think that the present tariff is better than the one before the last; but it has certainly failed to glvo general sat isfaction." The Saratoga platform in its praise and defense of tho tariff Is therefore perfectly consistent with EDISON'S VIEWS ON IMMOR TALITY Now York dispatch to tho Chicago American: "If Thomas A. Edison had paused to write hla views on 'Im mortality' Instead of being 'Inter viewed, ho would have avoided this mass of contradictions, of anarchy and folly," said tho Rov. C. P. Aked, pastor of tho Fifth Avenue Baptist church, yesterday, In reply to the great inventor's views on tho here after. Dr. Aked picked tho Interview to pieces. He said ho had great rcBpect and admiration and gratitude for Mr. Edison, for his wonderful Inventions of tho phonograph and several hun dred other things, but thought that neither Mr. Edison nor any other man should attempt to discuss vast themes of mankind, life and destiny In an interview. He pointed out the fact that tho United States supreme court was listening to arguments In tho Union Pacific rate cases nnd that the learned judges would weigh each word and polish each sentenco before It rendered a decision and would not attempt to decide offhand. "Tho Interviewer says ho wont to Mr. Edison because he has solved so many puzzling problems," said Dr. Aked. "Why go to Mr. Edison? What metaphysical problems has ho solved? What has he done to entitle him to bo heard as an authority -ttpon questions of tho human spirit and of God? "Now, frankly, wo must rid our selves of this delusion that the spe cialist in one department is an au thority to be heard in matters cf which he is not a specialist.

Republican candidates for con gress will probably be even more sur Drised at the Commercial's surprise; surprised, in fact, that it should have so little comprehension of the popu lar sentiment of tho country. Tho ship subsidy subject is one that is full of dynamite, especially in tho great middle west, which will prob ably have a large inlluence m tue sixty-second congress. In the view of the practical politician the less said about ship subsidy during this campaign the better. This is made evident by the peculiar reticence of tnat that cntitles him to Bpeak aH an the republican candidates concerning anvnfv intnmnfinngi r,mio it.

Nor do we hear of other republi can candidates shouting from the housetops that they are heart and soul for ship subsidy and eager for a chance to vote such a burden on their constituents. On tho contrary, it would appear to be pretty clear that none o? them is going to say a word about it If he can avoid it. Thus, it is likely that the Commercial must continue to be disappointed at the lack of discussion. Ship subsidy may still be a live wire, but it is one carrying too high a voltage to be safe to handle during a campaign. Indianapolis Nows. M1W, ill a., Iu CHr.

Will that entitle him to say that the murder of a high official in Cairo proves that tho people of Egypt are unfit for self-government and ought to bo dominated by the British? Because of tho attempt to murder Mayor Gaynor should tho people of New York be declared unfit for self government and a British fleet sent up tho Hudson? "These things are absurd! A man of science is not qualified to discuss such problems. His mind is taken up with other things. "Mr. Edison In his Interview gives many Illustrations of bias. Mr. Edi son is obsessed by the words 'super natural' and 'supernormal.' He tells us that nothing is supernaturnal or supernormal, and although he uses the words, he makes no attempt to distinguish between them nor tell what he means by the words as ho uses them." Dr. Aked was of the opinion that Mr. Edison's interview waa doing harm. He quoted philosophers who held contrary views to those of the inventor. He grew somewhat sarcas tic when he alluded to the interview er's question to Edison, "Are we ever to know the what and the why?" and Mr. Edison's reply, "I'm darned if I know." In contra-distinctlon to Mr. Edi son's "I'm darned if I know," Dr. Aked quoted Tennyson, who ho de clared was Mr. Edison's intellectual equal. Dr. Aked said Tennyson be lieved in a hereafter, as he wrote: "I hope to meet my Pilot face to faco when I have crossed the bar." ouble YsurHay Prefita! Cut Down Coat of Ballnc!
