mere agitator. Agitation alone is not
a' sofvenf for sociaf or economic ills;
it.mayioften serve as a - distress
signals, but distress signals, In them
selves, do not prevent disaster.
All reform contemplates destruc
tion before construction, for scien
tific reasons. The old tissues of a
wasted physiques must first be torn
away bfore new ones can be built
up. But no reform s complete until
this process of rehabilitation has
been carried through. Powerful in
fluences may by ceaseless condemna
tion pound a system Into repudia
tion, but of what consequence is
their effort; unless it carries' .'with It
the corollary of constructive force?
Things are being stirred up today

nothing of Turkey, .where the fer
ment of reform ' acts with' almost
ceaseless fervor, and Mexico, at" our
door. And people' are saying, "I ad
mire so and so because he keeps
things stirred up." The real object
of admiration, however, it the man
who' comes along with quieter man
ner nd less public ado to settle what
has been stirred up; to resolve Into
concrete construction the component
elements of potential reform. He Is
the man who gives finish and effect
to the stirring up of the agitator,
who rounds out . into action the
words of the one who raises the dis
tress signal.: . , t : 7
And yet the agitator has his place.
Actuated by a sincere motive, he Is
but a part of the power of social
discontent that has moved and made

sincerity he is only a reckless dema
gogue. , . ; ;

CONVENTION 0 EGANIZATION
By Victor Rosewater, Editor of The Bee.
It the democratic national convention
at Baltimore, following closely after the
republican national convention at Chi
cago, has done one thing clearly It has
reinforced and vindicated the frame
work of organisation upon which all of
these big political president-nominating
assemblages have been constructed. It
has thoroughly demonstrated that In all
essentials the evolution of the conven
tion system has been the same in both
great political parties, and that every
complaint . lgnorantly or recklessly
lodged against the machinery of the re
publican organisation could be preferred
with equal propriety, or rather Impro
priety, agalnBt that of the democratio
organization. ? : .t 4
The. starting point to be kept In mind
constantly Is tbat these conventions are
representative in character, made up of
delegates from the states and territories
chosen and clothed with authority, by
the members of their respective parties
In their particular constituencies, and
that to act In a representative capacity
they must be chosen ' according to ' the
terms and conditions embodied In the
calls for the -conventions and compliance
therewith properly certified to.. . That the
convention may not-be overrun by the
people, the locality In which it Is
held, as it would be if It were merely a
mass convention, an apportionment Is
made' fixing the relative delegate repre-.
senUtlon upon an accepted aad undls
orimlnatlng asls. . . This . baalr i sub
stantially, that of the. electoral j.coHege,
although double In number, being two
delegates for .each United State senator
and two for each representative in con
gress. In, the democratic convention the
unit of representation; Is the state, unless
the state .itself makes a different .unit.
pi .the republican convention a dual unit
prevails, being the state for delegates-at-large,
anij the congressional .district for
district delegates, and the rule Is ex
pressly provided an4 .enforced . that no
election shall be , held which shall' pre
vent the republican electors of each con
gressional district from choosing their
own district delegates. ., , , . ' -
Another feature of the national con
vention calls of both parties requires cre
dentials of elected delegates to be filed
with the respective national committees
In advance of the meeting date, and the
tiling of credentials In a greater numbar
than that apportioned to any state or
district presumptively creates a contest.
It an orderly convention is to be had
these contest must be tentatively decided
by the national committee as part of the
process of making up the temporary roll,
and this Is what was done, both at Chi
cago and Baltimore.
It will be asked why the'vontested dele
gates should not be made to step aside
and wait for recognition by the uncon
tested delegates. A mere statement of the
Inevitable consequence of such a proceed
ing la sufficient answer. If that rule pre
vailed it would merely stimulate a com
petitive rivalry by the supporters of dlf
ferent candidates to trump tip contests
against one another's delegates, and leave
the victory to the side that could Insti
tute the- most contests, va!ta or fictitious.
It would by a trick turn a minority Into
a majority.' In the extreme, It would find
every delegate facing a contest, and no
uncontested delegates remaining to or
ganise. In the recent republican conven
tion, the Roosevelt campaign managers
framed up nearly tw contests, three-1
fourths of which on hearing the evidence
felt to the ground wider -a unanimous
vote of the committee,. Roosevelt and Taft
men joining In pronouncing them utterly
worthless. After this showing of fraud
and fakery, It was Inevitable that sus
picion should attach to all of-the con-,
testa ehampioned by the Roosevelt con
test manufacturers and that In doubtful
cases the burden of proof should rest
upon; them. , : n:

HOUSES IN HOT WEATHER
By K. W. Connell, Health Commissioner.
Only a few suggestions as to changes
In houses during hot weather are neces
All carpets and ruga should be packed
away until the time for fall cleaning.
Draperies and lace curtains should also
be removed. The smooth, painted, waxed,
oiled or varnished floors, kept scrupu
lously clean, give the bouse a look and
feeling of coolness and simplifies the
housework In many ways. Although these
changes may make ' the 'home saera - a
little bare, yet It is all the more re
freshing whsn replaced In the fall 1
It Is almost superfluous to speak of
the necessity of having only screened
windows and doors with self-closing
springs, but be sure they are tight and
flyproof, If files get In your bouse, do
not rest until they are removed (better
dead than alive). , !
Qreat care should be taken that no
garbage, milk or sweets of any Kind be
allowed on the back porch or steps, as
these draw tiles. If many swarm. around
the door or windows you have a breeding
place near. Remove whatever draw
ing them and place a plate -wj tit a i slice
of bread sprinkled wtlh sugar, with, a
solution of one-third cup of milk, , one
third cup of water and one tablespoon
ful of formaldehyde poured over the
same., ... , '. ' .'. v
Keep the windows open In all sleeping
rooms at night. Bee that the first one
up in the morning opens all windows and
doors- throughout the, . house, put ' up
blind and flood, the houte with fresh,
cool air and - sunshine. As . soon as . it
begins to get warm outside close the
bouse and. draw shades down. Tne house
having been tilled wtlh fresh, cooi air,
keeps cool the balance of the day. Late
In the afternoon again open. the, windows
and doors, put up the shade and open
the . blinds, except the west ones that
are exposed to the hot rays of the sun,
Sick Room In Ht' Weather..-, '-f
In selecting the sick room, tt should al
ways be the largest and best ventilated
room on the Second floor, , southern or
western sipect ' preferably. ' It should
have plenty of sun and light unless the
patient is afflicted with an acute disease
Of brain, some form ef fevers, or eye
trouble. The room on the second floor
Is preferable, as the air U freer from
contamination caused by any possible de
composition In the surroundllg neighbor
hood, or from stagnant air or gases from
oellar or closed areas, aad is mew a con
stantly changing. ' i ' "'- -'.'
The bed should be placed so the patient
will not be in a direct draft from an open
window or doors, and so the tttht, both
daylight and artificial. Strikes the patient
from the back and side Instead frf directly
In the face and eyes. The bed' should be
so arranged tbat the nurse 'can easily
pass all around It. In the case of sick
ness that la prolonged or any contagious
I disease, the closets should e emptied.
roll appeal lies to the : credentials committee,-
which makes up the permanent
roll. At Baltimore the credentials com
mittee reversed the findings of the na
tional committee Jo. one .case, but was not
sustained by the convention. At Chicago
the credentials committee affirmed the
findings of the national committee In
. every Instance, and the convention ac
cepted the report after full opportunity
! for explanation, so that the republican
national committee's work on the con
tests was . twice reviewed, and twice re
, affirmed. f
; Another duty devolving upon the na
tional committee of each political party
Is the selection of temporary officers
adequately equipped to preside over the
convention. At both. Chicago and Balti
more the committee's choice of temporary
chairman was -challenged' by appeal to
the conventten. Itself, yet In neither 'was
' the challenge successful. The installation
of a temporary chairman puts the conven
tion In possession' of "Itself but complete
organisation Is effected only by conver
sion of the temporary roll, with or with
out change, into the permanent roll, and
the election of permanent' ' of fleers. The
effort made at Chicago by the Roosevelt
tacticians, both before and after the tem
porary organisation, f to Strike out from
the delegate membership list the so-called
"tainted" names "without further Investi
gation was' for ; spectacular purposes only
,The document -'ijtanded' up contained the
, names of Seventy-two delegates, many of
i whom had been unanimously seated. The
, Rooseyeltlans asked that these, names 'be
' stricken,. off and their partisans substfe
tuted by roll call from which the seveniy.
two should" be' eWuded. 'Cm' the outside
the Roosevelt orators' varied' the " tratyi
cry as high as ninety and as low as forty.
If they thdugi? .their plan hief rnerlt '.they
might, sts well have Inserted In their Hat
the whole. 260 Taft delegates against whom
;thy had tiled fake, contests; and by ex
cluding a fourth. of the convention mem-
bershlp made sure ''of. ' the minority con
trolling. The more 1evl-headed. and : far-
i sighted Roosevelt leaders, like Governor
Hadley for. example, saw their, untenable
position and conceded that the temporary
roll as made up, by the. national committee
defined the lawful membership of the
(convention which alone must settle all
jsuch controversies. ' , . ; f;
At Chicago the temporary chairman wag
made the permanent chairman In fact,
. he had before that, presided over .the
greater part of the deliberations, because
the struggle all centered about the cre
dentials committee reports. At Baltimore
the temporary chairman gave way to a
different "chairman, but nothing was
thereby accomplished except to divide the
.honors.. ..', .
' It should be noted particularly " that
both conventions , constituted a new na
tional ' committee in the same . manner
as their previous national committees
had been constituted, . and Invested tt
with the same duties . In connection with
the next national convention. As a mat
ter of fact. It Is absolutely necessary
for a national, political organization to
have some responsible executive commit
tee and the national committee, . made
up of members chosen by the delegations
from the respective states and territories,
has been the natural development to meet
this requirement. Every new political
party ever organised has rn a like man
ner constituted a national ' committee,
similarly empowered with authority, and
, so long 'as we have the convention sys
tem .sone such machinery to' carry1 ' on
the campaign and make the .preliminary
arrangements - for- successive, nominating
assemblages, whether for the old political
parties or for hew. ones, must be pro
vided. : And It is a safe prediction .that
if a third party shall be born for the
glorification, of Colonel Roosevelt, a na
tional committee,' or an executive com
mittee corresponding to the Committers
referred to, will be the head and front
of-the party directing Its active opera
tions. . : ' '
All draperies, rugs, lace , curtatns, pic
tures and nlcknacks should be removed
and fumigated. The less furnishings out
side of the bed, two chairs and plain or
dressing table, the better. Provided the
patient is not seriously 111, a . few flowers
are often refreshing and agreeable, but
never leave flower In the sick room dur
ing the night. An abundance of fresh air
from; thoroughly screened windows and
doors must be obtained at all times. Al
ways keep at least one of the windows
lowered from the top to allow the warm
Impurities to escape, as they tend to ac
cumulate there. The bed should have good
springs, firm mattress (one made of hair
preferably), with draw sheet covering the
mattress. A sheet and light weight
spread with a light blanket to add in case
of sudden change In the weather, : 1 all
the covering necessary. One or more
dishes of a solution of chloride of lime
or Platte's chloride, should be kept in
the room all the time while the weather
Is dry and hot, as the evaporation moist
ens and purifies the atmosphere. Noth
ing is more agreeable and comfortable
than the water from a hose playing for
an half hour several times a day over the
root of the bouse, veranda or sides of the
sick room. Only those who have used
