JHK QFRM AX' AM T.RICA 1 VOTE.
Mr. Bryan's press agpnf at Lincoln
clearly Is overdolrrsj H In the enatter-of
making claims. Mr. Herman Kidder,
the editor of the biggest paper' In
America that Is printed In the German'
language, spent tome time with Mr.
Drvan the other-day and the neit
morning this dispatch, under a Lincoln
date line, appeared In most of the
Mr. Bryan secured much gratification
over the Sours consultation he had at
Falrvlew today with Herman Rldder of
New York, and head of the democratic
German-American bureau. Mr. Rldder told
Bryan that the German-American vote,
which has never been for Bryan, Is being
swung, to him as a unit this year on the
It Is safe to assert that Mr. Rldder
never made such prediction or asser
tion. He Is a shrewd observer of men,
has had exceptional facilities for be
coming familiar with the character and
wishes of the Americans of German
descent and doubtless knows better
than mo6t men that the German-Americans
are thinking men who invariably
show the courage of their thoughts on
election day. Their votes are neither
purchasable nor swingable and the
time has passed when political leaders
pay much attention to men who pre
tend to carry the German-American
vote In their pockets, ready to be de
livered on order.
Mr. Rldder possibly may have told
Mr. Bryan that the German-Americans
were pleased with the democratic po
sition on the tariff question, but It Is
difficult to understand why such should
be the case. If It is true. The German-
Americans are protectionists and not
free traders. They have alwaj's
thrown their strength in favor of pro
tection, when tariff was an issue In
national campaigns and there Is no
reason to believe that they have ex
perienced any change of heart or
opinion on that subject. They were
opposed to Mr. Bryan before on both
the free silver and . tariff Issues and
there -Is no reason or cause for any
change on their part in the present
Granting that the German-American
voter favor tariff revision, they must
know that their only hope of securing
that lies in the election of the repub
lican president and congress. The
election of Mr. Bryan, with the senate
certainly republican for at lep.st six
years to come, would serve to com
pletely end any hope of tariff revision
during his term of office. Whether
the statement sent out from Lincoln
came from Mr. Ridder, Mr. Bryan or
Mr. Bryan's press agent. It is an Insult
to the intelligence of every American
of German birth or descent.
TUB AVIATOR CRAZE.
Remarkable progress unquestionably
has been made In the science of avia
tion, but we are some years likewise
a few months and several days from
the era when mera min may claim to
have accomplished the conquest of the
air and made the elements his play
things. The achievements of Santos
Dumont, the Wright Brothers, Henri
Fsrman and tither airship . experts,
have, in the humble opinion of earth-
huggers, been given undue significance.
For Illustration, the record of Orville
Wright, in a series of tests for the
benefit of the army officials at Fort
Meyer, Just across the Potomac from
Washington, haB so aroused the en
thusiasm of the usually conservative
Associated Press that IU eport' de
clares that "war on, land and sea will
find tn the aeroplane, it Is now con
ceded by military men, a , valuable
means of reconna'isance and possibly
Mr. Wright, it appears, with a heavier-
than-alr machine, . made two flights
of one hour each and another lasting
for alx minutes, and the military ex
perts at once declared that the prob
lem of the air had been solved and
that all that remained was to work
out the utility of the machine. Ac
cepting the premise that the conquest
of the air has been, accomplished,
Washington authorities are already
speculating on the effect the
triumph will have in war,
on land and sea, and In all of the
activities of the government. An au
thority in the Treasury department
hints at a possibility that contains the
elements of real alarm anl concern.
He suggests that Ju9t as soon as the
airships get into real working order
smuggling will be reduced to an exact
science and the revenues of the gov
ernment from that source depleted or
eliminated. All the Smugglers' union
would have to do . would be to have
their airships meet the Incoming
steamers, drop on deck for a social
call, collect the diamonds, Jewels,
works of art and other dutiable roods
and hike off to Omaha, Butte or some
other Inland city and plan for 'the dis
tribution of their loot. Of course. It
would be the duty of tho government
lo go Into the airship business and
keop a force of inspectors up in fleet
flyers watching for smugglers, but the
opportunity for. evading such Inspect-
tlon are too great, and heavy loss Is
certain to follow the adoption of air
ships by smugglers.
This is only one of the many possi
bilities opened by the perfection of the
science of aviation. In that field
imagination and speculation may run
wild, but, when all is said and done,
the stubborn fact remains that the
'utility of the machine is to be worked
out. The tneory nas Deen provea
correct. U is also true that the theory
that there are countlesa . billions of
gold in the waters- of the ocean has
also been proved beyond question, but
the "utility of the proposition is' to
be worked out." In the light of prog
ress made in the science of navigating
the air," greater devel6pments may be
expected; but it Je much too early yet
to be planning excursions or inquir-
ing about tourist rates on the Upper
irjxTKD. moor vr EjvrjrsMSM.
At the risk of calling down upon our-
si-Ivps further execrations from a few of
the faithful and fanatical, we make bold
to remark that the Indifference of the
South Carolina democrats to the cause of
Mr. Bryan sems to Justify our prediction
some months ago that the csmpalgn would
end with the Denver convention. We wish
that we could be disillusioned; we wish that
the democrats of South Carolina and of the.
country would sharply rebuke us for saying
that there was an absence of enthusiasm
for Mr. Bryan. Charleston News and
The Charleston News and Courier Is
not a republican newspaper, nor a
mugwump. It Is democratic to the
core, of the old Bourbon type, its edi
tor being a recognized political leader
in the south and a prospective United
States senator from South Carolina.
It Is true Editor Hemphill showed a
little enthusiasm some weeks ago by
starting a contribution for the benefit
of the Nebraska candidate and suc
ceeded In collecting a fat hen and a
pedigreed Hongkong gander. The
Hemphill family had a potple, southern
style, of the hen and the gander was
raffled off for the benefit of the Bryan
campaign fund, netting $25.65, which
apparently represents the sum total of
South Carolina enthusiasm for Mr.
Bryan, and the condition in South Car
olina on that proposition obtains gen
erally throughout the south.
REMGJOA" AKD POLITICS.
One of the deplorable and most
despicable methods of campaigning is
to attack a candidate on the score of
religion. It is so utterly at variance
with the real spirit of Americanism
that it is only resorted to in the des
peration of a losing case. Very sel
dom have the people of this country
ever been confronted by a candidate
whose morality and integrity was not
such as would bear the closest of scru
tiny, and for this reason no religious
Issue Is ever honestly raised.
The constitution of the United States
says: "No religious test shall ever be
required as a qualification to any office
or public trust under the United
The constitution of the state of Ne
braska says: "All parsons have natu
ral and Indefeasible Tight to worship
Almighty God according to the dictates
of their own consciences. No person
shall ever be compelled to attend,
erect or support any place of worship
against his consent, and no preference
shall be given by law to any religious
society; nor shall any interference
with the rights of conscience be per
mitted. No religious test shall be re
quired as a qualification for office, nor
shall any person be incompetent to be
a witness on account of his belief, but
nothing herein shall be construed to
dispense with oaths or affirmations.
Religious morality and knowledge,
however, being essential to good gov
ernment, it shall be a duty of the leg
islature to pass suitable laws to pro
tect every religious denomination in
the peaceable enjoyment of Its own
mode of public worship and to encour
age schools and the means of Instruc
tion." Nebraska not so many years ago was
very widely stirred by the activities of
a political clique who undertook to
proscribe the members of a religious
denomination and ostracise them in
every way. The strife engendered at
that time was bitter and the lessons
of that experience were costly in many
ways. The people of Nebraska have
no desire to enter into the rancorous
folly of another "religious" Campaign
and the purblind partisans who are
undertaking by innuendo and covert
allusion to inject a religious issue into
the present campaign are making a
most lamentable mistake.

Back in 1897 Baltimore won the
championship in the National league
by 13 percentage points, representing
a difference of three games won and
one game lost, and never since that
time until now has there been a prom
ise of such a heart-breaking finish in
the race for the pennant In the differ
ent base ball leagues. Base ball fans,
who represent a healthy majority of
the population, have a wealth of ma
terial to demand their interest, atten
tion, figuring and speculation. In all
of the leaguea the teams are now in
the homestretch, nearing the last lap,
and the outcome is full of uncertain
ties, so narrow is the margin between
the leaders and so uncertain the work
of -the tallenders.

and Pittsburg are separated by less
than 12 percentage points, while Chi
cago is only 1 5 points behind Pitts

York had the honors In 1904 and 1905
without much effort, and Pittsburg
won the championship In 1901, 1902
and 1903. In each of those contests,
however, the pennant winner had a
good lead established long before the
close of the season, thus robbing the
contest of much of the vltl interest
that marks this year's struggle in the
In the American league the finish
has usually been close. Detroit cap
tured the flag last year, beating Phila
delphia by but 6 points, while the 1906
championship went to Chicago by 10
points over New York and 26 points
above Cleveland. The Philadelphia
Athletics had the pennant In 1905 by
16 points over the White Sox. Boston
ran away with the flag in 1903, cap
tured it from New York by a close
margin' In 1904 and has since been a
In the Western league the fight Is
a pinching one between Omaha and
Sioux City, with the odds in favor of
Omaha. In the "American association
Indianapolis leads by an eyelash, with
four teams in line for the final victory.
With the closing days of the race
trouble always come from the tailend-

the element of uncertainty increases
the ardor of the fans and serves to
add to the general interest in the

A good many lessons have been
pointed from the various returns made
from the late primary, and none im

Out-of-town visitors know more ab'ut
New York than native New Yorkers do,
truthfully observes a writer In the New

comes down to the fine point. I was talk
ing to the conductor of one of the sight
seeing cars In front of the Times building
yesterday and we discussed this subject.
He snld: "I have only been here a Utile
more than a year, but I'm conducting this
car and showing the wonders of the city
to strangers. Irfist fall we took a crowd
of New York society people out en a sight

ished to discover how little they know
about New York. Outside of their calling
lists, the churches they attend and the
theaters, they know almost nothing. Their
curiosity was unbounded. They wanted to
know who lived In every house we passed.
They seemed to be hungry to learn some
thing which their manner of living hHd de
nied them of. They had a curiosity to find
where people lived who were not In their
social list. They actually did not know the
names of streets.
"I never conducted such a curious party.

one that asked so many questions and
knew so little about New York. They all
declared It was one of the Jolllest evenings
they over spent. Of course, we started
from one of their Fifth avenue residences.
and the crowds on the streets did not
know that we were hauling around all
those hundreds of millions of dollars that
day. The newspapers never knew of the
trip, and nothing was ever said about it,
but Fifth avenue hnd us loaded down that
day, and each passenger declared he was
going to come often. I wish they would.
They made me work, but I enjoyed show

New York City Is the great emporium of
the American continent for "Junk." And
this Junk Includes a vast variety of once
valuable things, such as marble and gran

and seciid-hand clothing.
The second-hand building material market
haj been unusually busy with out-of-town
orders this summer. This has been partly
due to the extei-elve destruction of build
ings in Manhattan to make way for great
skyscrapera. There has not been an equiv
alent demand for this material within the
city boundaries, and most of It has been
shipped .aw.iy. Some of It will add greutly

LABOR I THE CAMPAIGN.
Can Gorapers Deliver Free Americans
The following remarks of Mr. Gomperd
on fciunday are significant and important
if true. Said Mr. Gompers:
I want to repeat that the men of labor
are nol partisans. They are neither re
publicans, democrats, socialists nor Inde
pendence party men. We are working men
who propose lu exercise our political pow
ers for ihe preservation of oar rights and
liberties. VUe are going to muKe tne fignt
now, not ten yearaor tifty years from nuw,
but in this campaign, it will not do an
opera bi.utfe ilgnt for a phantom and a
itreain to be realised In the vague future,
but a fight for a principle and lor a pariy
that win win.
Wo approach this contest purely as work
ing men and we will be as tree from par
lUansnip utter the election as we were bo
lure the campaign began.
Vv'e believe u little consideration of what
this assertion Involves will bepurate intel
ligent working men from Mr. (Jumpers' Im
perative "we" decisively and finally. We
believe the American working man will re
sent being put in a class by himself with
Mr. Gompers a self-eelected dictator. We
believe tho American working man con
siders himeelf a citlxen in the same sense
und degree us the farmer, Ihe doctor, the
lawyer, the merchant, and realises thai
this full cltiicni-l'lp Involves a full consid
eration of all the problems which confront
the nation, to the wise and patriotic solu
tion of which it is his duty. Ilk any other
cltlsen, lo address his Intelligence.
Mr. Gompers, assuming to represent this
free citizen, says In effect: "I have decided
that one of the planks In the platform of
one of .the parties la mure udvantngeous
or more conciliatory to you than the plank
inserted upon the same subject In the other
party platforms. Therefore 1 Invite you
to swallow this party's candidate and this
party's whole platform, hide, hoof and
We do not believe the American working
men are so abject or so narrow-minded or
so unpatriotic as to do this. If any of
them vote for Mr. Bryan It will not be
at Mr. Gompers' preposterous Invitation,
but because as citizens In the full posses
sion of their poli'.leal rights und in the
full realization of their responsibilities they
have considered all that his election means,
all that he Is pledged to do or not do, all
that he la likely to do or not do, all that
hie party promises and Is likely lo ter
form. The American working man Is a good
citizen who will uct like any other good
citizen. His welfare Is Inextricably bound
up with the welfare of his fellow citizens
and of the wholo nation. And if he is as
wise as we believe him to be he will not
put much reliance In the democratic In
junction plank to bring him safely through
the sea of troubles into whlcn Mr. xsryan s
election would jpreclpltate us.
