MERELY A QUES HON OF M0EALS
How a Maryland Electoral Nominee Views the Proposition.
Philadelphia Public Ledger.
There ia at least one ardent supporter
of Roosevelt whose moral sense ha not
been deadened by the example of his Idol.
Even though the colonel may himself in
terpret "under no circumstance'" to mean
merely "until it Is to my own advantage
to repudiate my pledge," Joseph R. Bald
win, one of the presidential electors of
Maryland, takes the honorable view of
the question. He says:
No gentleman on the regular republican
ticket will vote for Roosevelt; it makes
no difference how mucn he aamirei
Roosevelt. Electors are not under com-
nulslon of any written law to cast their
votes, but they are under compulsion of
moral law. The candidates for electors
were nominated with the understanding
that they would support the regular re
publican candidate. They nave no ngut,
n my opinion, to violate this understand
ing because they are aggrieved, no mora
than they woilld have for a bribe. Both
parties have safely relied upon tne nonor
of electors heretofore, and I, for one,
should I remain on the republican ticket,
propose to vote according to the instruc
tions given by the republican convention
of Maryland, as stated above, no gen
tleman could do otherwise.
There Is the kernel of the Issue con
cerning the electors who refuse to abide
by the action of the party which named
them. It la not a legal question at all,
but on of gentlemanly conduct, of
morals. "No gentleman," as this Auury
land gentleman puts It, would put a stain
upon the honor of the electors, which has
been Inviolate for more than a century
of the nation's history. No fait pre
tense of "regularity" would Justify an
elector remaining upon the ticket of a
party while he professes at the same time
allegiance to those who are striving to
destroy It. '
In war short shrift would be made ot
the soldier, or officer who, while he
wore the uniform and bore the arms of
one side, aided and supported the
enemy. Perhaps there is no way to
act In such summary fashion with elect
ors who refuse to obey the directions
of the party whose commission they hold,
but unless they are dead to every rule
which baa heretofore controlled honor
able elector they will cease to cling to
the livery of republicanism and come into
the open and proclaim themselves what
There Is nothing discreditable to them
In preferring Roosevelt and a third party.
but there is something peculiarly dis
honorable In taking shelter under a flag
which they repudiate, in seeking to con
fuse the voters by retaining a false po
sition, and in violating the confidence
which has always been placed in presi
dential electors. It has remained for
Fllnn, under the Inspiration of Roosevelt,
to propose to electors an act of dishonor
of which not one elector has ever before
been guilty, and which has not once been
suggested as possible. ' ' .
Tet this Is the program of a party
which hopes to come Into bemg as a
protest against "political dishonesty"!
Verily, the example of personal perfidy
and repudiated word,' ' represented by
the Roosevelt candidacy, has bad a pro
foundly disturbing effect uppon the moral
sense of the nation, or a part of It, but
the appeal to the moral law made by the
Maryland gentleman, already quoted, will
doubtless touch the consciences of elect
ors who for the moment are blinded by
partisan passion, and disappointment to
the moral side of the Issue.

Canal Tolls a Hague Question.
Discussing the question of Panama
canal tolls in the senate the other
day, Senator Root said:
I shall content myself with suggesting
to the senate that any legislation' which
may be enacted ought to be framed with
view to the fact that this Is matter
about which we (the senste) cannot
finally decide. If the Judgment of the
senate shall be in favor of the policy of
discrimination and mine Is not! I think

Newspafiers and politicians opposed to a
re-election of President Taft are trying
to create the impression that he is the
favorite of Wall street, which means the
financial, railroad and big Industrial in
terests of the country. There Is not the
slightest proof of this. Neither th big
Interests, as far as the trusts are meant.
nor the railroads have evidenced any en
thusiasm for the president. While he has
not talked about "rich malefactors" and
wealth acquired by wicked methods, as
has his predecessor, he hts -acted In a
way to displease' Wall street. It is Mr.
Taft who has hit more trusts than Mr.
Roosevelt. It was Mr. Taft's attorney
general, who, In 1910, frustrated by In
junction proceedings' the railroads' plans
to. raise freight rates. The Sugar trust
has been hit by Taft, so, too, the Steel
trust, so the Powder trust, the Bathtub
trust, the Shoe Machinery trust, the Har
vester trust and others. Wall stmt men
did not lift a finger to help th presi
dent In the campaign preceding his nomi
The Standard OH people are not at
present In politic. Their combination
stands dissolved and it seems tha they
do not care who may be the next occu
pant ot th Whit House. They Seem to
rely for their salvation, not on political
pull, but on their own business ingenuity.
Whatever money has been furnished by
Wall street men to help a presidential
candidate has been used In behalf of the
noisy colonel for the simple reason that
the Perkins element hate Taft for the
reason that he went, after the Steel trust
and the Harvester trust, the two trusts
which, under Roosevelt's administration,
These two biggest trusts and their
beneficiaries contributed, according to
current estimates, about $2,500,000 to re
nominate Mr. Roosevelt and they stand
ready to contribute more shoud he run
as a third candidate. Perkins is the chief
figure now at Oyster Bay. He and his
men don't expect Roosevelt to win, but
only to use him to defeat Taft's re-elec
tlon. This would not give them a presl
dent of their liking, but enable them to
get even with Taft for his attacks on
their pet trusts, but If they cannot carry
their point, they want at least vengeance
and vengeance Is sweet to such as they.
Just as Taft is not a Wall street candi
date, so Woodrow Wilson is not. There
are in Wall street probably as many in
favor of Wilson as. there are for Taft.
Th Wilson men of Wall street are either
Princeton alumni or are those , against
both Taft and Roosevelt .There are also
In Wall street many who look upon Wil
son as a harmless theoretician.
As matters stand, Wall street as an
entity ha no favorite at present, but If
any candidate can be called Wall street's
favorite, it la the colonel,, because In
furtherance of his political fortunes more
money has come from Wall street men
than ever before for any presidential candidate.

Passing of Roomy Hotels.
Roomy hotels, those that furnish
a guest with all the space be wants,
are fast going out of business. Real
estate values cut a big figure these
days and the hostelry with spacious
halls and large rooms Is not the one
yielding the richest revenues. So
the old Southern hotel of St. Louis
is to be abandoned. It was an Ideal
hotel In many ways, but it covered
too much ground space for Its' alti
tude to suit these days. It gave the
guest too much for his money.
A wonderful history clusters about
this old landmark. It has been the
headquarters for southerners ' and
politicians tor thirty years. Here
occurred the famous Maxwell-Preller
tragedy In the '80s.: Hugh Brookes,
alias Hugh lyjaxwell, an Impecunious
young Englishman, chloroformed his
friend and - benefactor, Arthur
Preller, and stuck his body In a
trunk, which was found by a maid.
Here were entertained world-tamed
visitors to the Louisiana Purchase
exposition, and here centered politi
cal wires, that nominated McKlnley

know that a number ot contests, almost
as great as this year, were Ironed out by

Last month, th number was 263, and in
1908 it was 316. Mr. Victor Rosewater,
who sat with the national committee on
both occasions, writes in this week's
Independent: . i
"Four years ago the fact soon developed
that of the Hi contest presented to the
national committee, the vast majority of
