time would be most unfortunate. It is
nevertheless necessary to establish re

though they be, as soon as the circum
stances of the situation will warrant.
Every nation has something at stake
In a condition such as now exists. It
would be safe neither to commercial
nor political Interests to delay recog
nition very long. At present we have
no diplomatic relations with Portugal,
since the government with which we
were In communication has been over
thrown. The republicans there, to be
sure, may not hold their power, but
until they are superseded they form a
national authority and If during the
period of their control this or any
other country had relations with
Portugal that called into question any
of the rights of international Inter
course it would find Itself at a disad
vantage to be out of touch diplomatic
ally with the ruling powers. A score
of emergencies of this kind might
arise. But even the ordinary business
transactions are important enouffh to
demand an early recognition. "
England's idea of all the powers

plates a busineBs-like method of pro

The Air Army.
John Barry Ryan, founder of the
I'nited States Aeronautical reserve,
makes the remarkable statement that
this body of men now numbers u,500,
and is scattered through every state
In the union. It amounts to nothing
less than a militia of aeronauts ready
to defend their country iu the air in
case of war. The thing tomes upon
! us with such suddenness that we find
ourselves scarcely prepared for Its
force. It reminds us of the tremen
dous momentum this aerial navigation
mania has attained and suggests the
possibility of real, practical utility
within a very short time.
i But all this and the Idea of carrying

on war irom tne ciouus might still
seem visionary If we did not know
how It appealed to the most matter-of-fact
meu. Here comes Congressman
Hull of Iowa, chairman .of the house
committee on military affairs, with
this statement :

"Not a moment's hesitation," says
Congressman Hull. The case, then, is
not only Important, it is imperative.
Immediate action must be taken. Like
a flash this tiream of the ages comes
upon us. Certainly with 3,000 men
standing ready In all the states and the
chairman of the house committee on
military aftaira demanding $500,000
to equip our army with aerial mean
of defense, we have little reason to
hang back and doubt that the aero
plaue will figure In the wars of the
future. Evidently the experts in this
method of travel are satisfied with the
tests already made that the principle

and, indeed, this Is precisely the con

that they are ready to offer their ser
vices as living arguments to other na
tions against the desirability of war
with the I'nited States.
Suppose it Had Been Reverted!
In the recent republican primary in
Nebraska the nomination for United
States senator was contested by five
candidates. All the candidates when
filing to have thelr-names put on the
primary ballot were required to sub
scribe under oath to a pledge to abide
by the result of the primary. When
the returns were In It was found that
Senator Elmer J. Burkett had been re
nominated by many more votes than
were received by all the others com
bined, his closest competitor being
Charles 0. Whedon. Instead of abid
ing by the result of the primary, how
ever, Mr. Whedon continues to write
letters for dissemination through dem
ocratic newspapers attacking the suc
cessful nominee with a view of defeat
ing him at the polls.
We state these facts iu this buld
fashion simply to lay the foundation
for the question, "Suppose It had been
reversed? Suppose In the primary
Mr. Whedon had been nominated and
Mr. Burkett defeated by a decisive
vote against which no fraud or manip
ulation could be imputed? Suppose,
notwithstanding his solemn oath to
abide by the result of the primary,
Senator Burkett had, nonetheless, by
voice and pen proceeded to assail Mr.
Whedon aa the party nominee and to
urge his defeat? Suppose all this to
have happened and try to Imagine
what Mr. Whedon and his friends
would be Baying about Senator
Where We Fall Down.
An Austrian baroness who was not
permitted to puff her cigarette in a
fashionable New York cafe vents her
displeasure by saying that "except In
this respect the United States eclipses
all other countries."
And here we had been deluding
ourselves with the notion that it was
in such respects that it was because
we frowned upon such customs as our
women smoking in public places that
we excelled. If there is a point from
which in this respect a comparison is
to be made It probably, must be that
our womenfolk do not wish to smoke
la pnbijc places and . that It is not
their-fiabit to smoke In private places.
The view of the baroness, who sug
gests that smoking In a cafe by a
woman Is no more objectionable, so
far as the smoke is concerned, than by
a man,- places the matter upon a moral
ground and certainly the average cafe
is not actuated from that standpoint.
The whole trouble seems to be that
the baroness, undoubtedly an estima
ble woman, failed to readjust her
views upon the subject of personal
liberty and properties to our American
standards. She cites that In Austria
she has seen the emperor's grand
daughter smoke In public and adds,
"And she is a perfect lady." And no
body is prepared to think otherwise
of the baroness merely because of this
little habit. It all amounts to a dif
ference in tastes and customs in dif
Now, for Instance, tu the United
States, as the baroness observed, a
woman may go Into the most aristo
cratic cafe 1n the land and drink wine
until It becomes necessary for her
friends to assist her to her carriage
and what she says or does during the
process is not to be reckoned as offen
sive. Still, the average American will
scarcely feel like coming; to the baron
ess' view as to the propriety of women
smoking cigarettes, so much as he will
to the view of condemning what
women now do in some cases, and
whether the cigarette Is smoked In prl-
tate or public will not have much ef
fect upon his mind. We simply have
not yet, as a people, educated our
selves up to the point where we can
appreciate the virtue of women smok
inj. The death of State Railway Com
missioner Cowglll, forcing the people
to choose another In his place in less
than two years after he was inducted
into office, is a reminder that some
thing else ought to be taken Into con
sideration in filling a place in this
most important body w here experience
counts for almost' as much as courage
and honesty, and that is a reasonable
assurance that the man chosen will
live out the six years. Except when
au Incumbent is re-elected, advanced
age or physical infirmity should be a
bar to aspiration to this place. Candi
date Hayden, on the democratic ticket,
is over 60, and an old man iu more
ways than one. He has no special
familiarity ' with the work devolving
on the commission and it would take
him a long time to learn. If he would
ever learn, with the chances even that
be would die in office and certainly be
Ineligible because of age for a second
teriu. On the other side, Henry T.
Clarke, jr., has had four years famil
iarity with the work of the commis
sion, is In the prime of life and gives
the best possible guaranty of future
usefulness to the state.
Of course, with stolen state money
borrowed from Bartley lu his pocket,
M Just the proper caper for Poli
gresaman Hitchcock and his paper to
enter remonstrance against permitting
anv iinivrr v nrnresKor to ret ire
on a pension paid out of tainted money
furnished by Andrew Carnegie.
Congressman Hitchcock Insists that
be was not personally responsible for
the World-Herald' exposure of Mr.
Goold's participation In the Bartley
loot In 1901 and its demand for his
withdrawal from the republican ticket
as candidate for university regent. So
much the worse for Mr. Hitchcock, as
that stands out as one of the few good
jobs the World-Herald has done, and
about the only time he ever went after
a treasury looter instead of standing
in with him.
If newspaper support counts for vic
tory In New York, Mr. Dlx ought to
have a good chance. Since his nomi
nation the World, Times, Sun and
Evening Post have one by one tome
out for him. It still appears, how
ever, that the people are taking some
Interest In their candidate, Mr. Stim

Tammany through "Boss" Murphy.

One of the most Important orders Issued
rn a long time from the War department
will shortly be promulgated by the adjutant
general. General Wood believe that de
cided advantage will accrue front a pro
tracted sojourn on the part of department
commander at the poets visited by them,
"since only by prolonged and I till mat as
sociation with the personnel of each post
may they assure themselves of post condi
tions," as required by army regulations,
and "determine the proper corrective meas
ures to Improve efficiency," when it falls
to reacli a proper standard. The letter to
the department commander Is specific in
Its terms and 111 he read with profound
Interest by army officers. Bpecial atten
tion, It will be observed, la to be paid to
riding over obstacles by all mounted of
ficers of reRlments of whatever grade,
with the provision that all esses where of

will be repotted to the adjutant general.
Considerable Interest attaches to the
comments which ar likely to be made
thi year by the chief of ordinance of the
army and In the report of the army board
of ordnance and fortification concerning
the Emery disappearing or what might
better be called the nonappearing carriage.
The government has been spending a large
sum of money since iKH In an effort to get
a carriage from Mr. A. If. Emery and noth
ing has as yet appeared In tangible form.
Those who are Interested In the manufac
ture of this carriage have been very suc
cessful In obtaining allotments from con
gress. The government has appropriated
no less than I2.iQ.O0u at different times and
a large part of this sum has been paid out.
As General Croaler remarked last year,
"so far the government has nothing to
show for this expenditure, except the foun
dations for the carriage." All the work on
the Emery design has been done 'under
direct legislative enactment, and the only-
part taken or to be taken by the board of
ordnance and fortification la that, when
completed, the carriage is to be tested
under the supervision of the board. No
one seems to know much about, th situa
tion, the money being paid over when a
certificate Is made that a certain fraction
ot the work has been accomplished.
Major John Blgelow, IT, 8. A., retired.
has been nominated by the democrata for
congress- from th Twentieth New .York
district, that officer' home being at High
land Fall. N. Y. The point has. been
falsed fcy Mr. Rv. R. McMahon, formerly
assistant comptroller ot the treasury, that
under the constitution of th United States
no person can be a senator or representa
tive while holding a commission In th
army. The assertion Is based on tha lan
guage of article 1 of section , which pro-
vldea that "no person holding any office
under the United Ktatca shall be a member
of either house during his continuance In
office." Mr. McMahon maintains that an
officer ot th army on the retired list
holds an office. Thi matter waa pretty
thoroughly gon over at the time General
Sickles represented a New York district In
the house and General Rosecrana waa reg
ister of the treaaury. General Sickles' law
partner prepared a brief, setting forth that
a retired officer was a pensioner and did
not hold an office, which view waa about
to be adopted, when congress enacted leg-
lalatlon In the law of July SI, 18H4, amend
lug exlating law ao a to remove the pro
hibition against holding two offices in the
case of retired officers of the army and
navy, "whenever they piay be elected to
public office or whenever the president
shall appoint them to office by and with
the advice and consent of the senate."
There la no precedence for the admlaalon

records of the trial by court-martial of

dered before a court at Vancouver bar
rack on the charge of being responsible
for the loss, or of not exercising sufficient
precaution against th mbezKlement, of
government funds, amounting to I10.0U0,
while that officer was on duty in Alanka
as lieutenant colonel of the Twenty-second
Infantry. This was befoi his retirement.
which was deferred until he should have
attained the grade of colonel. Th charges
also allege that Colonel Cooke had made
ue of government tranxporlation for the
shipment of personal property In Alaska.
Colonel Cooke s pay was stopped at the
time of Ills retirement to the extent of the
money lost. Colonel Cook has been sen
tenced to dismissal. Another vase to en

duty with his regiment In the Philippines.
He i also eenteiired to dismissal, after
having been twice befuie a court-martial.

specialists in the treatment of women's diseases.
