The Colonel', Explaaationi.
The errlanatiODi offered by Col
onel Rooaerelt to juatlfy Ua present
candidacy for a third term, aotwitb
atandlag hi repeated declaration that
cader do condltlone would b accept
another presidential nomination are
intereatlngd, If aot' conTlndng. He
now aaya that whea he aald "another
nomination' he meant merely a
nomination for another coaiecutlTe
term, and that the Intervention of
four year In prtrate life baa released
him from hi lelf-lmpoeed pledge
Aifumlng that ho Is correct bow
In the eonatructloa placed apoa hi
language ef 1904, reiterated la HOT,
the regrettable thing la that Colonel
Rooeeelt did not make hi meaning
plain at the time o that both Mend
and foe could har naderatoed all
along Juct bow long hi abaegatioo
wa to 'lait Tbo public, too, might
bar gued better tbo purpose of
th twtag around tbo circle after
emergiDx irom tho Jungle and the
pecucular re-entry Into New York
Mill politic In 11. Had tho peo
ple of New York only known that
the campaign two year ago wa but
a prelude to a third term presidential
candidacy la 1111. they might possi
bly hare Totad . differently.
Another part of tbo explanation
that anggesU (till further explanation
la the assertion that the precedent
forbidding a third tern grew out of
the fact that a president "can, if he
knows bow to us tho machinery at
hi disposal, renominate himself eren
though a majority of hi party I
agalaatiblm," which objection doe
aot apply to aa ex-president out of
office for four years. Colonel Rooee-
relt never objected to a second Con-
ec.utT term' 'on this account, be,
himself, having taken advantage or
hli poaaeartoh of the" machinery of
government, not only, to renominate
himself, but also to nominate his suc
cessor, and presumably I of th same
opinion a to a second consecutive
If. then. Colonel Roosevelt goe
hack loto the White House, will' he
seek re-electtoa In ltllt Would
any' objection withstand tbo prece
dent of two consecutive term twice
for tho sam president If separated
by a four-year period of private life?
la other word, doe a third torn
carry with it a fourth term, which
Colonel Roosevelt himself says b
could have If b wanted tt It rein-
voted 'with official power? Where
I th (topping point between thro
terms and thirty terms to which the
editor of the Outlook has referred
Hid. approval? And tt th people,
who 'ought at all times to rule, de
sired hi nomination In 1I0S, as
oianj of thsra doubtless did. why
tbould ihy bars been eompellud by
him to deprtvt themselves ot 4B
service 'it 'their stroauoui'pres'.deat
a for a four, Yes r' intermission?
The ooloael's explanation throw
the quotttda tor wlds open,
stand against tolls at all, urging that
the canal sbonld be free. And be of
fers tome very good argument to sup
port his contention. Going Into detail,
ha ahowa that if we had tolls they
should bring In aa annual Income ot
about $15,000,000. The official esti
mate of the annual coat of the canal
Is $1,000,000. Interest on tho outside
approximate coat of building $400,-
000,000 at as low aa S per cent.
would come to $11,000,000 a year, so
tha Income would take care of these
two Items, Just about. Bat Mr. Bar
rett declares that a free canal, at a
conservative estimate, based on the
data of trade experts, would carry la
the first year $74,000,000 mora ot
the product of the Ualted State
thaa a toll canal, making five time
the Income of a toll canal right
Of course. It la necessary to view
all these figure as estimates at best,
but It is certainly true that the great
est service of this canal, Unking the
Pacific with the Atlantic, the Occident
to the orient, la not to be reckoned
oa the basis of th toll revenue. The
only warrant for charging toll, of
course, I to pay for th cost of build
ing and operating tbo canal, but the
Increase ot trad to the United
Bute and of Influence abroad, to say
nothing ot effecting more equitable
laad traoaportatioa rate, are also to
bo kept in mind la considering the
canal's value to ua. These are matters
up to congress and they will require
cars In determination. '

For a beautiful example of ficti
tious mathematics command us to
th ciphering by which th World-
Herald baa undertaken to prove con
clusively that th water plant la pos
session of the Water board will pay
all running expenses and Interest
charges, and leav a net revenue of
$m,00 a year for capital account
or for rata reduction. Starting with
statemsnt by the water company
la Its supplemental bill that Its gross
earnings ar about $700,000 per
annum, th W.-H. mathematician ar
bitrarily add $U 0,000 tor earnings

ating expenses to be $110,000, and
then by computing th city' interest
charge at $111,000, build a Bet
profit air oastl ot $175,000 a year.
Oh, how we wish It were true.
But alas and alack! It Is not
In tho first place, as we under

la th fourth place, If th plant

have thl remarkable dtuatloa: th
