For a month the Saratoga confer
ence of anti-Bryan and anti-Tammany
democrats has been discussed as if It
were a national convention. Now that
the time has come It Is the chief event
In politics, next to the president's ap
proaching tour. Yet there is nothing
impending which this conference can
do to change the course of the parties.
The democratic party in New York
state is rent worse than for five of tlx
years with Jealousies and distrusts
Nationally the party situation Is that
described in Maryland this fall, one
of "incurable schism."
At least the Saratoga conference
is respectable In ability, sincerity and
character. Resolutions, prepared, by
Morgan J. O'Brien may be wrong In
political principle, fcut they are sure
to' have force and to stimulate the old
loyalties- - of Cleveland's - adherents,
The conference will not make the mis:
take charged by one set of Maryland
democrats against the other In the re
cent state convention, that they have
no national relations and can only
drag along a state machine with local
If there are such things as leffer-
sonlan principles, which Is doubtful
we may hear at Saratoga how they are
to be stated. State rights, on the
score of age, may wear the name, but
It would be hard to find another. It
may be. that the only sound, safe and
sane advice to what Is left of the party
of Cleveland and Tilden Is to declare
for honest money, an economical army
and navy, administrative efficiency and
reasonable railroad rates. Then-Join
the republican party and adjourn. Is
not that policy better than fo con
tribute money ana aDiuty to a pro
longation of an ascendancy distasteful
and false to the convictions of every
man at the conference?
Cook and Peary Data.
No world controversy ever had a
more Impartial array of Judges than
are the American people, who, without
bias but with strained' attention, are
reading every scrap of news about the
strange conclusion of the Arctic
How does the case between the two
Americans stand t Cook's weak point,
recognised from the first. Is that he
brought back no data to confirm what
be must have known to be. a story
certain to call out peremptory de
mands for proofs. He went to Eu
rope, but entrusted his data to Whit
ney, an unknown young man, for
In taking with him only two Eski
mos on his final ruth to the pole he
did not make a suspicious error, for
all explorers reduce their companies
to the smallest dimensions when away
from camp. Mentlonbas been made
of previous mistakes of Cook in his
reported ascent of Mount McKinley.
He reported ascending to the summit,
but submitted no proofs. Criticism
was made of the long period between
April, 1908. and August. 1909, the
date of bis discovery and that of his
announcement. That is explained by
the long delay while he was borne off
by a "lead" and nearly starved. This
point, which was at first taken against
him, Is now placed In his favor, for
It is not likely that he would have
concealed himself so long, with no ap
parent reason. It is noted that Rae
mussen, the famous Dane, who met
Cook far up in Greenland, treats the
Cook account a true. Other Danes
familiar with Arctic navigation take
the same position without demur.
Both men made the final rush In
the same way and with almost Identi
cal methods. Both lived at the last
stage with Esqulmos and had them In
the rush, Peary taking a greater num
ber. Melville has modified his early
sharp remarks about Cook, the ex
planation being that Cook's first dis
patches were garbled In transmission.
The wonderful speed of Cook's final
trip is shown to be no greater than
Peary made in hla previous venture,
when he spent thirteen days in idle
ness. Tbla is a rough summary of the
points In the strange uncertainty be
tween the two Americans. Peary's
dispatch, that certain statements were
made by the Cook Esqutmos, is not
yet clearly understood. Nobody can
see how Peary could communicate
with them. The dispute Is now where
It apparently must rest for some time.
Ho Such Dilemma.
Commenting on the president's an
nounced intention to discuss the new
tariff law in some of the addresses he
makes on his coming western trip, the
Lincoln Journal pictures Mr. Taft in
a terrible, dilemma. It says:
A presidential defense of the law except
as the most temporary of makeshifts will
flood the whole Missouri valley with ICS
water. The situation demands all the tact
the president commands, and all th
straightforwardness. It may not be wise
for the president to say all he personally
thinks about the tariff or the tariff law.
The Journal, and those who take
the same view, need not be distressed
as to whether it Is wise or not for the
president to say Just what he thinks
about the tariff. If he discusses the
tariff at all he will say Just what he
thinks about It without any dissem
bling or reservation. If he did not
regard the new tariff law as an Im
provement on the old he would not
have signed It, and if he did not re
gard it as, under all circumstances, a
substantial compliance with the plat
form promise of revision downward he
would not have made that declaration
In the statement accompanying his ap
proval of the measure. The president
certainly Is not going to assail a tariff
law which he, himself, helped to put
on the statute books. If he says any
thing about the tariff he will tell the
reasons that Impelled him to sign It,
and the same reasons that would ap
peal to him will appeal forcibly to the
people generally, except those few
democrats who reject the protective
principle altogether, and a few repub
licans whom no tariff could suit.
Operation of a Central Bank.
Among the reports from Senator
Aldrlch and the monetary commission
are two of high 'significance. One is
that a central bank In some form Is
favored by a majority of the commis
sion and the other that Senator Aid-
rich Is determined that the currency
shall be settled permanently under his
leadership when, the commission re
ports. The country remembers that
congress stopped In the last effort
with an emergency currency measure
which has never been used and In the
present state of business never will
be. The currency remains as It has
been for years, consisting chiefly of
national bank notes based on govern
ment bonds and treasury notes, or
greenbacks, based on the credit of the
government. The principal cfiange ef
fected in years has been the absolute
adoption of the gold standard
It baa lately been said that the
credit '. of the government Is not a
necessary of proper function of a cen
tral bank. It belongs to the govern
ment and the people. . Yet the popu
lar thought Is that the two things are
associated. When the next currency
debate comes up many members of
oongregs will probably assume the
necessity . of actually or nominally
meeting the public expectation In this
respect. Whatever expectations are
met, the settlement should be such
that If a central bank Is established it
should not be compelled to hold all
tne government Donas and the cur
rency should not be based exclusively
on bonds. The Inelastic character of
a bond currency was exhaustively
shown In the debate Just after the last
panic. It was made plain that bonds
may be safe and yet a currency based
on them grossly Inconvenient and
dangerous. If a man wants currency
he wants a certain sura at once and in
a form which will Instantly pay debts
then due. It was Lord Avebury who
said In the American discussion of 1908
that an ideal currency would move ex
actly as If It were gold. It Is the only
thing which can be . divided Indefi
nitely, as a bond can not, which every
body will take and which will not
shrink In process of liquidation, as
any bond will.
There Is a great difference between
a mortgage and a promissory note,
whether Issued by An Individual or by
the government. As any of the state
banking associations, In session at this
season of the year, or the National as
sociation, about to meet, would unan
imously say, It Is safe to conduct bank
ing on notes and not safe on mort
gages, lor tne reason mat notes are
liquid and mortgages are not That
Is a simple and universal rule of good
commercial banking. It will be Im
possible to have a scientific central
bank unless the rule Is kept In mind.
Senator Aldrlch and the commission
may not work out i. genuine central
bank. There are, It is admitted, dif
ficulties and objections, some com
mercial and some political. On the as
sumption that the rumors credited to
the commission are accurate and that
an effort will be made to establish a
central bank, the only relation of
which to the federal government Is
to supply accommodation, then It
would be highly useful for the people
to know how a correctly managed cen
tral bank should operate and upon
what basis Its notes should rest.

There is disposition to conclude that the
special commission of which Attorney
General Wlckersham is the head, and
which recently began Its sessions In Man
hattan la a consequence of the enactment
of the corporation tax provision of the
new tariff law. As a matter of fact, the
commission exists In pursuance of a plan
President Taft had conceived long before
tariff legislation was begun. Prior to his
inauguration the president had publicly
declared his belief that certain amend
ments should be made to the Anti-Sherman
act which would strengthen It In cor
The enactment of the corporation tax
provision was, as leading to a govern
mental supervision of corporations, a
seisvre of an opportunity which had not
been anticipated. It was, however, directly
In line with the president's plan, how
ever Indirect It may appear to be. By It
th work of the commission Is made much
easier. Had the corporation tax provision
not been enacted the commission must
have prepared, almost as the first step,
n amendment to the Sherman- aw which
would bring th corporations under super
vision. Now, however, that part of the
work done and made a law, formulation
of measures and amendments for the reg
ulation of the corporations and a re-or-ganlsatlon
of the Department of Justice,
the Interstate Commerce commission and
th Bureau of Corporations, so as to bring
about more effective co-operation, are the
duties before the commission.
Its report will be made to the president

of presidential recommendations to con

eight states hold elections this year Mass

and New York. While the campaigns gen
erally will not be of wide interest, that in

"MAKES LIFE'S WALK L-ASY"
ETHICS OK KXPLOnATlOM.
Sagaested Rales for Galdinsr Future
New York Tribune.
That ethics might play a part In polar
explosion probably was not dreamt d of
In the earlier days of the art, science or
whatever It may be called. It now seems
possible, however, that In future tho 'would
be discoverer of poles and the like will
be compelled to take a course In polar
ethics before he can secure his license.
Accordlngto th statement of one of the
physicians who accompanied a former ex
pedition poleward, It- the newspaper ac
counts may be relied upon. Dr. Cook, even
If he did discover the North pole, ought
to be disciplined for "violating the ethics
of polar expeditions" .by using a portion
of the route which another discoverer had
laid out. It might be assumed that Hie
real end to be desired was the discovery
of the thing Itself and that any suggestion
from on expert to another would( b Jn
the best of form, but it now appears that
when one man stakes out a route to 90
degrees north latitude anyone else who
uses part of It does It at his peril.
Another case wherein the ethical question
Involved two explorers may be recalled
from the reports of Stanley's expedition
into Africa for the purpose of rescuing
Emln Pasha. Mr. Stanley, we are told,
came upon Emln quietly smoking Ills p'pe
In front of his hut, cottage or palace,
whichever It may have been, and In a
burst of enthusiasm shouted that he had
come to rescue him. The prior arrival In
sisted strongly that he didn't want to be
rescued, and would prefer to remain where
he was, but Stanley still quoting from the
reporb-told Emln Pasha that he had to
be rescued, anyway, .whether ho wanted
to be or not, and so It was done. Mani
festly, the ethics of reseu were violated
In this Instance.
All this Would be superfluous were It not
for the fact that the South pole still re
mains to bo found, even though Central
Africa and Farthest North have already
been or are soon to be properly charted
and placed on the map. If the South pole
Is to be discovered at all It should be dis
covered ethically. It is the last of its
kind and Is entitled to every possible con
sideration. Proposed Party of Hummer.
