Their Supreme Effort.'
On the home stretch it transpires
that tbe supreme effort of the demo
cratic bosses Is to pull their candi
date for police Judge under tho wire
ahead of his ropubllcan competitor.
If they succeed in this their fondest
hope will be realised, while it they
fall, no Incidental crumbs will com
fort them for the loss.
Why is tho police Judgeship the
apple of the . democratic eye ths
time? Outsiders can only guess.
Outsiders only know thst the demo
cratic nominee for polled Judge is a
back democratic ward heeler, tho
confidential trusty of "Charley" Fan
ning, who combines street paving
and politics In one business, Fan
nlng'a bookkeeper and Dahlman'a
police court clerk at one and the
same time and in apparent violation
of the city charter, a chronic pie
biter with unsavory record In other
public Jobs. To cattch the wave of
public sentiment, Fanning'a book
keeper has pretended to have got
"reform," to have suddenly lcc6rae
a civic purifier, to have been en
dowed with virtues over night, never
claimed or suspected before.
The Deo cannot believe decent
voters will give preference to this
creature of the paving boss over the
pre-eminently clean, capable and de
serving young man, Charles E. Fos
ter, nominated for police Judge by
the republicans by an overwhelming
prlmar vote In practically every
ward -id precinct in the city. As
we h-re already said, If a fine fellow
like Charles E. Foster were to be
turned down for a man of the stripe
of Fanning'a man, Mahoney. there
would be little incentive for ambi
tious young men of good education
and promising qualities to offer
themselves for the publlo aervice.
No self-respecting voter should allow
himself to be stampeded Into casting
a ballot against Charles E. Foster
by the vindictive malice of any man
or set of men vllllfying him to vent
their spleen on someone else."
Coming Freight Bate Revision.
1 Bo quietly has it been done that
the public probably does not realUe
that tbe first general revision In
freight rates for twenty years has
been made and will be put Into ef
fect February 1. Other freight rate
revisions. Increases and decreases,
have come about In that time, but
no such ccneral readjustment. The
new clasHincatlons will affect ship
ments in the western, official and
southern territories. -
The detail of the uew schedules
is to be disclosed next month. It Is
said they are neither uniformly de
creases nor Increases, but represent
instead a general leveling and read
justment of rates to meet uew con
ditions. Some rates are lowered and
some advanced on the assumption
that many schedules had beeu
wholly outgrown and outworn by en
larged and changed conditions of
bunlucs-H, by new territory and a
dozen other things.
One of the avowed objects In
making these revisions has been to
secure as near as possible a uni
formity in description of articles,
also In rules nnd minimum weights.
The unification of rates has not been
atM.mptcd, although some 1,000
commodities are affected. Shippers
have conferred with and assisted the
railroad men wherever convenient,
and the road profess to believe that
th new rutea will be received with
foil s uipathy and confidence by the
shipping public, though, of course,
they must expect tome objections
and contests of rales. A year has
been consumed in the work of re
vision, several months being given
to sgrlcultural articles alone, so thst
the railroads are claiming tUe credit
of st least making serious effort at
rearhing a fair basis. The operation
of the rates may be delayed through
applications ,for suspensions by dif
ferent claHHOH of Rhippers desiring
time to attack wbot rates appi-ar un
fair or disproportionate.
The advance information of what
Is coming will, naturally, key up
cagernessi for final details.
Safe and Sane Hunting.
'i'ho small boy who considers his
rlghtn as an American citizen in
fringed by the safe and sane Fourth
of July crusade, might do a little
crusading on his own account to re
duce the number of deaths of hunt
ers, for It is still quite large, though
not up to what it has been In former
.years. According to careful com
putations, thus far this autumn
forty-seven nlinrods have been acci
dentally killed, whereas laat year
more than 150 lost their lives. The
present season bus romo time to run
and may yet bring up th total con
siderably. lut e will not have to wait uron
young America to act. The govern
ment has conceived the necessity of
a larger measure of protection for
thn huntera from themselves and
each other and the biological survey
Is compiling statistics with a view
of furnishing a basis upon which to
build better laws, state and federal,
for gaming purposes. To guide such
legislation, ono very interesting fact
has been discovered, that hunters of
deer, for instance, arc not killed In
states prohibiting tho shooting of
does, for tho hunter must hesitate
to distinguish between a doe and a
buck and it Is that hesitation that
often saves human life.
It is usually the half-cocked firing
of buck fever hunters that does the
mischief. I'erbaps, after all, the
only extra precaution needed is
greater deliberation. The task of
making men and boys more careful
may appear formidable, but It has
been done in other things and to a
very large extent, apparently, In
hunting, so that it will well repay
the effort to try still further.
Denver may fall short of securing
either republican or democratic na
tional convention for 1912, but It
displays a striking spirit of western
activity and enterprise In going after
both of them. It will, no doubt, get
a lot of good advertising out of its
campaign and may, possibly, capture
a convention, though it Is not the
custom to throw two to the same
city, especially one that has so re
cently entertained one of the conven
tions. The way Denver is undertaking this
task shows at least that Its people
are fn earnest about It and, further,
that , they are very wideawake.
Everybody in Denver Is enlisted In
the cause; It Is the business of the
hour. Unity of action prevails; the
Commercial club, other bunlness,
political and civic organizations have
combined their strength and influ
ence In one determined effort for
two great national conventions.
Denver Insists that Its Auditorium
Is large enough to accommodate the
conventions and that If it is not It
will readily build an annex for the
overflow. When the time comes to
locate the conventions Denver Is go
ing to present a firm argument, no
doubt, and If it loses the other cities
in the contest will know perfectly
well that tbey have been In a fight
and that Denver was in It.
Everybody familiar with the situ
ation knew It would come to this,
that tbe democratic organ would
tons overboard six of the seven dem
ocratic nominees for district Judge
and try to aave one favorite. But
how do the gentlemen In the discard
like that way of playing the game?
Are they willing to be used as mere
stool pigeons or will they protect
themselves against that kind of deal
ing? I The very demagogues who are try
ing to beat reputable and capable
candidates with the Dennison bogle
and put catspaws of the worst kind
of democratic machine politicians lu

from the fight put up against the Itaiians
sheltered by naval guns.
Aroused Vina I cm World.
The task before Italy Is one of uncom
mon danger. Unrest In the Moslem
world Is aggravated by the belief that
followers of the prophet are menaced by
Infidels. Writers familiar with condi
tions In north Africa. Turkey and India
agree that the steadily narrowing of
the Ottoman empire and the advance
of Kuropean powers Into Africa has
aroused Moslem fanaticism to a pitch
which lacked but the Italian torch to
buret Into a conflagration. In London a
few days ago Moslems of all races
gathered In a mosque and reverently
pledged their lives for the holy cause.
A conspicuous leader In India, writing
to the London Times, appealed to Eng
land to Intercede with Italy, declaring
that if Italy persists In conquering Trip
oli th Moslem World will regard It Is a
religious war and will tcslst to the
death. These incidents are symptomatic
of th feeling In the Moslem world. In
Africa Moslems are more Arab than Turk
and more united than In Turkey. For
over eighty years France has dealt with
them with Indifferent success. Between
the Atlantic and the fiues canal there
are no less than forty-five religious or
ders, with . "mother houses" stretched
along the borderland and oases of th
Sahara. The greatest ot these, the maa
ter of all, la the Senuaslyah brotherhood,
ruled over by the veiled prophet, a man
of exceptional ability as an organiser
and administrator, two qualities rarely
found among the Arabs.
Powerful fteeret Society.
The Senusslyeh brotherhood, according
to a writer In the Outlook, is a secret
Moslem society organised about a qen

it takes Its name; Its object la the resto

far superior to the wild and wretchedly

markable mobility, their wonderful
powers of endurance, their lar;e supplies
of the swtit and hardy racing-camel

knowledge of this great, inhospitable re

Turkey Calls Upon

to Italian Cruelty
WASHINGTON. Nov. 5.-The so-rulled
Iiellan barbarities In Tripoli have been
brought, officially to the attention of the
Amerlran government In such form that
somo declaration cf the position of the
Mate department In th matter now Is
expected. The subject wns broached first
In the course cf a verbal statement by
the Turkish ambassador to Acting Sec
retary Adee. and later in the day In th
form of a letter.
In each case the ambessauor. who de
clared he was acting under cabled In
struction from his government, c'escrlbod
In detail the acts attributed o the
Italian troops and protested In tho name
of humanity against the alleged bar
barities inflicted upon helpless women
and children and noneombntants by the
Infuriated Italian soldiers. Rv order of
his government the ambassador appealed
to th United States to exert Its In
fluence to put a stop to practices that,
he declared, were In plsln violation of
th rules of warfare and In contravention
of The Hagu convention to which the
United States and Italy are parties.
Acting Secretary Adee promised to sub

Springfield Republican: The selection
of Archbishop Farley of New Tork Is no
surprise, but outside of the church that

be said to have been generally anticipated.
Archbishop Ireland has many friends
among Protestants as well as Catholic
who will regret that hla claims have not
been recognized by the Vatican.
New Tork Time: The Catholic church
man In America who looms largest In

You never hear good stories now.
The dear, old-fashioned kind;
These modern tales don't seem, somehow,
To satisfy the mind.
I wish some one would tell a few
Like those we loved of old;
The ones we used to think were true -
The ctorles mother told!
When I was just a little chap,
As soon as It was night
I'd climb up Into mother's tnp
And she would hold me tight.
And tell of fairies, giants, and
Of warriors brave and bold
And ne-er have tales seemed half n't
As those that mother told!
Tale after tale she'd tell and then,
When she would say she'd done,
I'd always make her start again
And tell anothor one;
Pntil. at lart, all tired out,
My eyes would lose their hold
On wakefulness-fd dream about
The talcs that mother told.
Then, by and by. there'd come a knock.
And she'd let father In.
And, as she pointed to the clock,
He'd grin a sickly grin;
His business kept htm late, he swore.
And he'd explain and scold
Till mother's tales looked pale before
The stories father told!
