If there Is one keynote sentiment
characterizing all the comment on the
work of the Chicago convention, it Is
that In making William II. Taft the
party standard brarrr, the nomination
was awarded to the one man pre-eminently
fitted to fill the office cf presi
dent of tho United States. Unfriendly
critics, as well as enthusiastic admir
ers, agree that nowhere 1b to be found
such a combination of training for
public Ufa and experience In govern
ment administration, of judicial tem
perament and tried executive ability,
of breadth of character, proved Integ
rity and calm courage as is to be
found in the republican nominee.
That Mr. Taft possesses in the high
est degree all the qualifications that
are likely to be called into requisition
by a chief executive of a mlghtly re
public is everywhere conceded. When
It comes to the formal expression of
preference at the ballot box the people
will not, it may confidently be asserted,
Ignore the question of pre-eminent fit
ness to perform the responsible duties
of the presidential office. In choosing
a head to conduct the affairs of a na
tion of 80,000,000 of people, possess
ing billions of wealth and untold re
sources, the verdict will be determined
by the same considerations that would
be vital in tho selection of a new head
for a great business corporation whose
stockholders were mainly intent upon
entrusting their property to a man
ager in whose ability to handle it
wisely and successfully they could re
pose implicit confidence.
COMFORT FUR TltAVKLKHS-
The Master Car Builders' associa
tion of America, should be hailed with
appreciation by the traveling public.
One day of its session at Atlantic City
was devoted to the discussion of im
proved methods of heating and venti
lating passenger and sleeping cars and
the association decided by a unanimous
vote to recommend to the different
railways an entire change in the con
struction of cars for future use. It was
agreed that Indirect heating and venti
lation should be used in all new cars,
the air being Introduced under the
berths and seats and exhausted near
It 1b Interesting to note that the as
sociation made a special effort to ob
tain Information from the Pullman
company about its ventilating experi
ences and its plans for betterments, but
the company replied that it had noth
ing to present. Among the recommenda
tions adopted by the association are
Ample openings for fresh air should be
provided under the lower bertha of sleep
A alight excess preasure or balance of
pressure should be maintained Inside of
a car when the windows and doors are
cloaed. In order to exclude Incoming
draughte at the windows and crevices. This
can only be accompllHhed by driving the
air into the car a little faster than It la
drawn out, and means that the movement
of the air must be made to pass through
tho car, largely by driving It In, rather
than by drawing It out by means of strong
An ldoal system would be one In which
the preaaure were balanced and the amount
of air passed through the car wna entirely
Independent of the speed of the train.
Sleeping cara, In such service, as requires
the cara to stand at terminals during a
considerable portion of the night should be
especially fitted with an auxiliary forced
draught ventilating system. In addition to
the regular ventilating system of the car.
Air should be admitted to and exhausted
from a car without Ita being perceptible to
the passengers, and It should not pass
through the car in decided draughte when
the car la closed. The entering currents,
therefore, ahould be admitted ao as not to
come In direct contact with the passengers.
Under the existing system of car
heating and ventilation, the traveler is
usually alternating between refriger
ator and oven temperature, to his great
physical annoyance and discomfort, if
not to a positive menace to health. The
adoption of the recommendations of
the master car builders, by making
rallrad travel a pleasure instead of a
penance, would come as a real boon to
the traveling public and a, source of
profit to the companies.
From Russian official sources comes
a striking illustration of that nation's
poor claim to recognition by civilized
people. In the riots at Blallstok In
1905 nearly 100 persons were killed
and an equal number wounded in a
savage, ruthless butchery of defense
less and unarmed men, women and
children. Most of the murder was
done by the soldiers, without provoca
tion. After three years the Russian
government has announced that justice
has been meted out in that one man
has been sent to prison for three years,
thirteen have been given prison terms
of from six months to one year and
fifteen have been acquitted.
In the testimony produced the gov
ernment officials professed to believe
that the massacre was justified be
cause the victims, most of whom were
Jews, had terrorized the police and the
officials. The preposterousness of this
pretense 1b shown by the fact that the
Jews in Blallstok, as In many other
parts of Russia, were not allowed to
bear arms and there la little evidence
that they ever desired to do so and
the claim is made simply as a lame
excuse before the world for the in
famy which was prepared for and ar
ranged by the officials and either per
petrated by the soldiers or openly
abetted and encouraged by the police
hirelings. It was not even disputed
that the police and the soldiery made
no effort to prevent the massacres, but
aided In the killing and the outrages.
No one outside of Russian official
circles will contend that the Russian
Jews were murderously inclined, re
belled against authority or planned or
made any attack upon the Russians.
On the contrary, everyone knows that
they are oppressed, defenseless and
keyt la a state of abject terror by the
tyranny of Cossack savagery. This
mockery of Justice shows that the
courts are apparently as corrupt as
the other departments of the Russian
government. Obviously perjured tes
timony is aciepte.l, if it furnishes a
shadow of excuse for practicing official
savagery that Mould be a dlsgraco to a
tribe in darkest Africa. The incident
emphasizes tho hopelessness of reform
In Russia under existing Institutions.
WHAT OF EX-PHES1PEXTS1
The death of Grover Cleveland
leaves the country for a time without
a single living ex-presldent. it also
emphasizes anew the fact that since the
birth of the republic nothing has been
done to invest an ex-preBldent with any
other title or position than that which
attaches to a distinguished private citi
zen, retired from the highest office
within the gift of the people.
"What shall we do witn our ex-presl-dents?"
has been a periodically dis
cussed question and various answers
have been proposed without eliciting
any consensus of approval. The most
seriously considered plan has been to
provide a seat of perpetual tenure In
the United State senate by which the
experience and service of the former
executive could be drawn into requisi
tion for making the natlon'B laws. Inas
much as Buch membership In the sen
ate would have to be without vote in
order to avoid destroying the inviolable
equality the states as represented In
the senate. It is hardly likely that an
advisory senatorshlp would appeal
Btrongly to any man who has once oc
cupied the White House.
Another suggestion has been for a
civil pension large enough to insure a
life of ease and comfort without im
posing any reciprocal obligations. The
Idea la to place an ex-presldent In the
same class with a retired army officer
or a superannuated supreme Judge aa
proof of the nation's recognition of ser
vice already rendered, but a do-nothing
career of a government pensioner Is
not an alluring picture for the ordi
nary citizen, much less for the man who
has held a most exhalted position and
acquired hablta of Industry without
being incapacited for service. It Is
readily conceded that the offer of a
pension In the nature of a bounty
would have been respectfully but
firmly declined by the distinguished ex
president who has Just passed away.
There is nothing to prevent ex-presl-dents
from re-entering public life, but
the precedents, for the most part, are
all for the quiet pursuit of a private
career. Mr. Cleveland managed to take
care of himself with conspicuous self-
reliance after he relinquished his token
of official authority and it will prob
ably be a notable exception to the rule
whenever an ex-presldent Is for any
reason unablo to maintain himself In
befitting station on hlB own resources.
The country can be depended upon to
meet the requirements of an unusual
situation as it may develop, but in the
Interval will be strongly disposed to
let Us ex-presidents work out their own
THE OOVERXMEXT OX G VA IiD-
Several Central American newspa
pers and tome democratic editors in
this country are criticising the author
ities at Washington for having war
ships on both coasts of Panama for
the purpose of insuring a peaceful
election in that republic today
when a successor to President Amador
Is to be chosen. These newspapers as
sert that the United States is menacing
the independence of Central America
nd attempting to play favorites in the
selection of the candidates.
The democratic charges in this in
stance are wholly unfounded. The
government of the United States la sim
ply preparing to discharge an obliga
tion and a duty to which It ia pledged
by the treaty between this country and
the republic of Panama. Conditions
are critical at Panama. The natives
of the republic, with a marked Incapac
ity for self-government, have carried
their ante-election plans to the point
here there Is every prospect of a rev
lution, no matter which way the bal
lots go, unless the United States au
thorities intervene to the point of pre
serving order and securing a fair elec
tion and an honest count. Marines
ave been stationed at each side of the
isthmus and the regular troops on duty
on the canal zone are in readiness to
meet any emergency. They will not
be stationed on Panama territory and
will take no part In the election unless
their services are necessary for the pro
tection of life and property and the
Integrity of the Panama election. This
duty Is placed on the American gov
ernment by the constitution of the re
public of Panama, which contains the
provision that "the government of the
United States of America can intervene
iu any part of the republic of Panama
for the purpose of establishing the pub
lic peace and constitutional order In
event of the same having been dis
turbed." In addition to this constitu
tional warrant, the treaty between
Panama and the United States pro
vides: Right and authority are granted to the
United States for the maintenance of pub
lic order In the cltiea of Panama and Colon
and the territories and harbors adjacent
thereto. In case the republic of Panama
should not be, In the Judgment of the
Vniied States, able to maintain such or
der. Under these provisions no room is
left to question the authority of
the United States to act in any emer
gency in Panama, the results of which
might contain a menace to this gov
ernment's great Interests in the Pan
ama canal sone. The safety of that
property, involving the expenditure of
hundreds of millions of dollars, would
Justify the United States in taking
prompt measures for tha preservation
of peace and order on the Isthmus,
even if there was no warrant ia the
treaty for such action. The govern
ment Is proposing to do at Panama
Just what it Is doing in Cuba. Its serv
ice will promote the Interests of Pan
ama as well as the Interests of the peo
ple of the United States.

Having contributed millions to dif
ferent funds for the advancement of
medical science and other research
work, Henry Phipps of Pittsburg has
made another useful contribution to
the service of humanity by assigning
$500,000 In trust to equip Johns Hop
kins university for the study of Insan
ity, with the promise of a provision for
its maintenance. The establishment
of this plant for the care and cure of
those afflicted with mental disease and
for the study of their disorders will
niark a real forward step In the treat
ment of the Insane.
It is somewhat remarkable, and not
wholly creditable to the medical pro
fession, that so little systematic effort
has been made for the treatment of the
diseases of the brain. As far back as
records run there has been specialized
care for the sick in every part of the
body except the brain, and so marked
has been the development of medical
science that the list of bodily diseases
now recognized as incurable has been
reduced to a minimum. At the same
time, while the 300 public or private
asylums for the Insane in this country
contain 150,000 patients, insanity is
on the increase, not only in America
but in all civilized countries. Much
has been done to mitigate the condi
tion of asylum inmates, but compara
tively little for the prevention of in
Medical science has recently become
convinced that there Is functionally no
no dlfffference between mental diseases
and diseases of the various organs of
the body. It Is being proved that
brain diseases are curable when the
proper precautions are taken in time.
The opportnity for the advancement of
this work makes Mr. Phipps' gift one
of the greatest foundations made in
this country to the interest of hu
manity. AX OVTRaQE ON THE SOUTH.
Apparently there is to be no peace
for the southern colonels. They were
evidently scheduled at birth for
troubles and a militant career. After
they had "fit, bled and died" for a
cause they loved, but could not sup
port, the other train of evils and ills
followed. Reconstruction, grasshop
pers, the Yankee drummer, negro col
leges, northern energy and other dis
turbing elements picked the brave but
harried southland for a field of activity
and one by one the. old and cherished
traditions have been wiped away.
Each separation from the customs of
the happy past has wrung anew the
heartstrings of the old guard, until it
appears that nothing more belonging
to them would appeal to the desire or
cupidity of the northern vandals. But
now as a final affront an effort Is
being made to desecrate the sacred
It has Just transpired that an icono
clastic northerner, with his eye glued
on the dollar, has Incubated the almost
Inconceivable idea that a Julep can be
made in a factory and sold in a bottle,
like pop or ketchup. The Inventor
has published the formula of his chem
ical drink, showing that camphor is one
of its ingredients, and has testified that
It contains no alcohol. He frankly ad
mits that It is designed to bring him
profit while assuaging the consuming
thirst of the arid wastes In Alabama,
Georgia, Kentucky and other southern
Btates conquered In the recent battle
against the bottle. Although the
thirsty south Is supposed to be ready
to grasp at any straw It may find in a
tall glass, its sense of propriety is
outraged when this chemical drink Is
offered to It mlsbranded as a "Julep."
Notwithstanding the dispute as to
just how It should be made, the
"Julep" can not be made In a factory.
The legend runs that the Inventor of
the first "julep" died of Joy without
having committed tho formula to writ
ing. Brave men have quarreled over
the proper proportion of ingredients
and the manner of their mixing. Some
contend that the mint should be
crushed, while others denounce crush
ing as sacrilege, except, perhaps, the
slight bruising needed to release Its
fragrant, pungent, delirium-producing
aroma. Feuds have been fought over
the amount of sugar rightly belonging
to the perfect concoction or over the
question whether the ice should be
stirred until the glass is covered with
hoar frost or only until it forms in
crystal beads on the cool glass. It is
generally agreed that the construction
of the real mint Julep requires an art
iBt expert in the making and a con
noisseur in the consumption. To the
real southern colonel the "julep" is
a producer of dreams, a guide to green,
shady nooks, where the tinkle of pur
ring streams, splashing over pebbles of
pearl and losing themselves In a
meadow of violets, lead the imbiber to
If the thought of putting camphor
or moth balls Into the building of a
Julep does not cause Colonel Wgtter
6on to sound a call to arms and start
a new crusade for the preservation of
the people's rights, then the blood of
chivalry is frozen In southern veins.

A MlillT IN JUNE.
Bt. Louis Tost-Dlspatch.
Oh, for an endless night In June.
When the mrllow llKht of the rising moot,
Illumines earth, and the whlppoorwlll
Calls from the forest on the hill.
Calls to his kindred In the night. '
And the Idle, drifting, flreless llKht
With phantom phospohorus the eaves
And tiie dark recesses of the loaves.
Soft Is the night and soft the wind.
And soft are the hearts of human kind,
And yonder bright, approving eye
Is Venus In her western sky.
A time f.ir love and love's young dream.
For the wind to sigh and the moon to beam,
And the gondoliers with voices deep
To sing In rhythm with the sweep.
On such a night the troubadour
Was wont to sing to some demure,
Imprisoned maid, whose tender heart
Made small residence to his art.
With such a moon. Marc Antony
Went barging on the Inland sea.
And saw reflected In the green,
Peep flood of Nile, his beauteous queen.
At such a time came Romeo
To Juliet, and ere the glow
Of dawning day bid him bestir
He eased his pain with a eight of her.
In such a spell, for love of maid ,
Has suitor sung his serenade,
And atied to win, and lust to grieve.
Since Adam told his love to Eve.
Oh, for an endless night In June.
When the mellow light of the rising mooo
Illumines earth, and tho whlppoorwlll
Calls from the forest on the hill.
