Ernphisixinj Their Impotence.
The democrats who plead with the
voters to put them In charge of the
affairs of the nation are furnishing an
object lesson In their Inability to gov
ern even a party caucus. They are
demonstrating that on a matter of
party strategy, politics and interest
the democrats at Washington cannot
be united ny more than can the dem
ocrats In the nation. The effort of the
leaders to organise the minority Into
a strong, effective opposition to the
republican administration has failed,
leaving the democrats tn congress
hopelessly divided . and helplessly
The democratic minority had a
glowing opportunity at the opening of
the special session of congress. Re
publicans dissatisfied with the present
rules of the house offered to co-operate
with the democrats and accomplish re
forms which were pledged In the dem
ocratic national platform. The over
tures were accepted and plans for a
general revision of the house rules
were carried out, up to a certain point,
when two dozen democrats bolted their
caucus, defied their leader, abandoned
their allies and went over to the ad
vocates of the old regime. The re
publican Insurgents had a right to re
volt against the rules without being
chargeable with party treason. The
democrats were bound to oppose the
rules as a matter of party principle
and In obedience to a definite party
platform pledge, but the minority
leader could not hold his men and the
defection was but a repetition of his
tory, emphasising the lack of decisive
ness and the first principles of, success
ful organization in the ranks of the
democracy in congress.
Champ Clark, the minority leader,
and William Jennings Bryan, the late
presidential candidate, are busily en
gaged in reading the recalcitrant dem
ocrats out of the party, while Fitzger
ald, the bellwether of the democrats
who refused to follow Clark, retorts
that the democratic party is suffering
from "the same brand of idiotic lead
ership it has had for fifteen years"
and Intimates that there Is no hope of
betterment until the material at hand
for the creation of leaders is radically
changed. Champ Clark is thus repeat
ing In his own case the experience of
every democratic leader In the houBe
in the last fifteen years. John Sharp
Williams even had his fist fights with
members of bis own side while the
house was in session and, before Mm,
Bailey and Richardson both resigned
the leadership in disgust because the
high privates would not follow them
with the loyalty necessary to effective
party opposition.
The democratic party in congress,
like the democratic party in the na
tion, has no fixed principle and no ac
cepted policy because whenever it lays
down either It drives away a large ele
ment wi-.bln its own ranks.
Free Art Assured.
While the senate in its wisdom, or
unwisdom, may make some radical
changes in the Payne tariff bill as it
passes the house. It seems certain that
the long-fought contest for the re
moval of the duty on art has been
won. The Payne bill provides for the
admission free of duty of all paintings
and works of art more than twenty
years old. The reason for the age re
striction is not plain, but the practical
removal of the duty is a decided tri
umph for the advocates of free art.
The duty on art has always been
questionable. American painters have
not wanted it and the net result of its
retention has been to force Americans
to pay double prices for. Importing art
works and to force American students
who wished to etudy old masters
to go to Europe for that purpose. No
one has ever offered any convincing
defense of this tariff schedule and
the fact that It waa not long ago' re
moved la due largely to the lack of
concerted effort. Most of the rare
paintings which American ' men of
wealth have bought abroad have been
eventually donated to museums or art
galleries and the tariff has worked to
levy a tax on rich men willing to use
their means for educational purposes.
J. P. Morgan has a valuable collection
of paintings in Europe which he has
refused to bring, to this country be
cause of the excessive Import duty.
With the restriction removed this col
lection and many others will be
brought to the United States, to the
delight of students and art lovers. Thel
removal of the duty will make the
whole country richer in one of the
greatest resources of popular educa
tion. Queer Newt from Cuba.
The sudden departure for the tall
timber of a sergeant and seven mem
bers of the Cuban rural guard might
be looked upon as a joke, were It not
for the history record that real revo
lutions In Latin-America often grow
from such small beginnings. Holders
of Cuban securities in this country
evidently regard the matter seriously
as Cuban bonds and stocks have taken
a decided slump and have not recov
ered, despite the assurances of Presi
dent Gomes that the Insurrectionists
who have not been killed will be shot
M soon as. they are caught and that
there Is no menace to the stability of
the government or the peace of the
island. V
The situation is not improved by a
review of the work of the Cuban con
gress, which has been In session a
couple of months. The time has been
wasted In a wrangle over the distri
bution of offices, the pardoning of sev
eral tbouaand criminals, who have
been granted amnesty, the adoption of
a bill restoring eockflghtlng and bull
fighting aa national pastimes and the
authorization of a national lottery.
No measure looking to the advance
ment of tho rotl Industrial latereu
of Cuba has been paused or evpn con
sidered and nothing has been done to
justify the confidence of those who
have believed in Cuba'B capacity for
self-government. '
President Gomez must soon demon
strate his ability to protect life and
property In Cuba from the rebels. If
he fails, his administration will go
the way of that of President Palma,
which he helped to overthrow and
then Uncle Pam will be called upon for
a permanent solution of the Cuban
Crocodile Tears.
As was to have been expected, Mr.
Bryan in his Commoner sheds a
plethora of crocodile tears over Joseph
B. Keallng, whom he credits with
being "an honest lawyer" because he
"resigned the office of United States
district attorney rather than prosecute
In a government libel suit." Mr. Keal
lng Is held up by Mr. Bryan as a signal
example of a man "willing to resign
an office rather than enter upon a
criminal prosecution which he believes
to be unwarranted and dangerous to
the public."
The reason alleged by Mr. Keallng
for his action in his letter of resigna
tion Is that the Indictment of some of
his friends In the government libel
suit would require their transfer to
another jurisdiction, which might be
contested, and that he would not want
to be the agent of the government In
seeking this transfer. The Bee be
lieves, and has bo expressed Itself, that
these prosecutions, if brought at all,
should have been brought in the juris
diction where the defendant newspa
per is published, but that is neither
here nor there in this matter. If
every United States officer should re
sign every time some official act re
quired of him did not fit In with his
Ideas of policy the government would
be at a standstill all the time.
The Keallng resignation on its face
wculd indicate that some other reason
prompted it besides that Included In
the explanation. Readiness to resign
Is sometimes to be measured by what
is given up, and In this case the fact
that Mr. Keallng was appointed for
four years In December, 1905, would
indicate that all he has relinquished
is about nine months' of public service,
with the salary thereto attached. But
the current number of the Outlook
goes into further detail as to this par
ticular case, which seems to have be
stirred Mr. Bryan so much and vouch
safes this additional information from
inside sources:
Mr. Bonaparte and Mr. Roosevelt both
so thoroughly distrusted him (Mr. Keal
lng) that they had arranged that he was
to have nothing to do with the prosecu
tion. Mr. William Dudley Foulke had
made charges against Mr. Keallng of bo
grave a nature that Mr. Roosevelt had
much doubt whether he ought to be re
moved, but did not act simply because It
was so near the close of Ills (Mr. Heal
ing's) term, aa well aa of Mr. Roosevelt's,
and before the libel suit waa brought Mr.
Keallng had notified Mr. Roosevelt that
he would resign, providing a certain man
waa appointed In his place, the proposal
being made to prevent Mr. Beverldge
recommending a man to fill the vacancy.
So that resignation Involves not so
much a question of martyrdom for
"an honest lawyer," as Mr. Bryan
would have it, as it does a bold stroke
of clever politics.
Revision and the Consumer.
Perhaps the most striking feature
of the new tariff bill Is the recogni
tion extended by its ranters to the
wants and demands of the consumers.
In former efforts to revise the tariff
much attention has been paid to the
manufacturer and the importer, con
gress apparently exercising great care
that these Interests should not be in
terfered with unduly, but In the pres
ent measure a majority of the ways
and means committee appears to have
kept the "ultimate consumer" In mind
throughout their hearings and the
preparation of the bill.
It la figured, for instance, that the
removal of the duty on hides would
not amount to more tnan iu cents a
pair on the price of shoes. But with
some 80,000.000 people in the United
States who buy from one to a dozen
pairs of shoes each year, the aggregate
savings of 10 cents a pair makes a
very large total. So thu committee de
cided to admit raw hides free of duty,
The Argument that the saving might
be absorbed by the shoe manufac
turers was promptly met by a reduc
tion in the tariff on manufactured
boots and shoes by about 40 per cent
This will open the way for foreign
competition If the home manufac
turers become haughty, and the plae
ing of hides on the tree list should
result in a direct saving to the con
The cut of 25 per cent on meats
should help the consumer. It may not
result In a marked reduction of pre
vailing prices, which are determined
by many conditions extending from
the range to the butcher's stall, but
it should be a safeguard against arbi
trary increase in prices which packers
might attempt to make for their own
profit. For the same reason the re
duction of tne duty on refined sugar,
while almost nominal in amount,
really marks the boundary line be
tween monopoly and competition,, It
assuredly means protection against ex
tortion and timely advance of prices
by the Sugar trust at certain seasons
of the year.
The cut of 50 per cent in steel
products means much to the wage-
earners and home builders. It spells a
reduction in the most expensive ele
ments in construction and. with the
50 per cent cut on lumber, should
mean cheaper buildings, as brick,
glass and other articles coming under
the metal and construction schedules
are to be radically reduced.

An Instance of chlhllith sympathy and
open-hearted generosity was witnessed by
a carload of passengers on one of Brook
lyn's suburban lines last Saturday. A pret
tily droned little girl of years sat W'lth
hrr father, a distinguished looking and
evidently well-to-do man, In the forward
end of the car. The little one was hugging
a bundle which she from time to time sur
veyed with looks bespeaking pleasurable
anticipation. At one of the stations, relates
the Brooklyn Kngle, there boarded the car
a poorly dressed woman, a thin shawl over
her shoulders and a sad, careworn lo k on
her face. With her was a little girl R or t
years old. The little one's feet were en
cased In shoes that had seen better days.
They were torn In several places and tho
toes of the child's left foot were plainly
visible. The woman and little girl pre
sented a most pitiable appearance.
The two sat down almost directly opposite
the well dressed man and his pretty, flaxen
haired daughter. The girl whom fortune
had favored with better things looked com
passionately at her raggrd fellow passenger.
After a minute or two she turned her face
up to her fether. He leaned over the belter
to hear her whispered communication.
What she said seemed to please him Im
mensely and he nodded smilingly at her.
"Yes." he said, "do so, Dorothy."
And what Dorothy did made a deep Im
pression on the other passengers, and two
or three surrcptlously brushed tears away
from their eyes. Dorothy undid the pack
age, opened a pasteboard box and drew
forth a pretty little pulr of shiny new
shoes, with red cloth tops. These she pre
sented the ragged little girl. "Wear these."
she said, "I don't need them, anyhow.''
It was a proud little girl that carried
off those pretty little Bhoes to her squalid
home, but no one could have felt prouder
than the father of the donor of those shoes,
and each and every one of the passengers
On that car looked as though he or she
would have liked to shake hands with the
generous little girl.
On the strength of an -affidavit presented
by a physician the supreme court in
Brooklyn has advanced for trial the case
of Mary Begley. 13 years old. ngainst the
Inlerborough Rapid Transit company. It I
will be held on the first Monday in April,
nnd will not have to wait two years, as
would have been the case had the calen- j
dar been followed. The child was Injured J
In the subway on April 4 last, and it is al
leged that with the exception of twelve
days she was unconscious until February
15 of this year. Dr. W. B. Mosoley pre
sented an affidavit saying the child might
at any time relapse Into anothet; prolonged
stupor or become Insane, and for this rea
son the court agreed to advance the esse.
The little girl is a daughter of Mrs. Cath-'
erine J. Begley of Brooklyn. The Injuries
she sustained were considered trivial at
first and were caused by a guard hur
riedly closing a door of a subway car.'
Many thrilling rescues were effected by
firemen Thursday- morning at a blaie In
a three-story and basement house at 309
Tompkins avenue, Brork!yn, occupied by
August C. Eldridge and family. Wilbur,
the 14-year-old son of Mrs. Kldrldge,
proved himself a little hero. With his
brother Allen, aged lti, imd baby brother,
Robert, aged 14 months, .he was asleep on
the top floor of the building when he waa
awakened by the choking fumes of smoke.
In the darkness Robert began to cry and
Wilbur seized him in his arms and. with
remarkable presence of mind, tore away
a portiere and wrapped it around him.
Then, with the youngster In his arms, he
staggered to the stairs and started down
stairs. On the way down he tripped on a
step and fell, but managed to let the baby
fall on top of him so that he waa not hurt.
Then he continued the deescent until he
reached the floor below, where he Joined
the other shivering members of the fam
ily, who were rescued by the firemen.
