Is settled. And Isn't It glorious! To say
that we are surprised, amaxed, shocked,
would be disingenuous; for. we saw It
coming. The seeker for. social Justice and
a third term in the : presidency, having
failed to secure the nomination from the
party of Abraham Lincoln, and having
in the pursuit of office started a party of
his own. determined to seek support In
the south. His mother was a Georgian
and bis Georgia uncles were officers In
the- confederate army. He had always
believed that his popularity among south
ern whites could be made politically val
uable It an appeal were to be made under
right conditions. He now desires electoral
votes from southern states. The only
way by which he could possibly draw
from the democratic party an appreciable
following would be to notify all concerned
south of Mason and Dixon's line that the
negro was not wanted as a political
factor In this new personally conducted
movement for the uplift of mankind.
. The - Louisiana, democratic gentleman,
Mr. Parker, who has been so often men
tioned as Mr. Roosevelt's running mate,'
and who has started for Chicago as a
delegate from a white man's progressive
'convention to "fight for a white
man's party,", as tit declares, should be
reassured by his great leader's letter to
Mr.- Harris of Georgia. The idealist of
Oyster Bay remains aa practical aa ever
no less so than when he persuaded the,
late Mr. Harrlman to raise a campaign
fund In Wall street. Ideals are beautiful.
Mr. Roosevelt loves ideal as he does
nothing else In the world except success.
But, In this business of the southern
negro, as he writes to Mr. Harris, "we
face certain actual facta" "It would be
much worse that useless to try to build
up the progressive party tn these south
ern' states where there Is no real re
publican party, by appealing to the ne
groes or to men who In the past have
derived their sole standing from leading
and manipulating the negroes." "I.
earnestly, believe that by appealing to the
best white men In the south, the men
of Justice and of vision as well as of
strength and leadership, and by frankly
putting the movement In their hands from
the outset we shall' create a situation by
whloh the colored men of the south will
ultimately get Justice." . And thus social
LOGICAL AND HONEST COURSE
Actions of Republicans at Lincoln Commended.
New York Tribune.
The attempt ef Colonel Roosevelt's fol
lowers In Nebraska to take over the re
publican organisation In that state was
met as It ought to be met In every other
instance n which that sort of larceny Is
tried. The republican state convention
having been organised by a pro-Roosevelt
majority, and Its chairman. Gov
ernor Aldrlch, having ruled eut of order
a resolution : declaring fealty to the
national ticket to be the vital test of
republicanism, the Taft delegates Im
mediately left . the .gathering and held
a convention of their own. They have
elected a new state committee and will
soon put complete electoral tickets In
the field. In other words, they will
purge the republican -party In Nebraska'
of dissenters and traitors and bring the
organization there Into complete har
mony .wUh ttte .national body of which
It is a subordinate agency.
THe Nebraska republlcaps took the only
logical and honest course in repudiating
a state committee and. a state convention
which Were unwilling to recognise the
paramount authority of the national re
publican organisation. In clinging to the
title and good will of the old party for
local advantage Colonel Roosevelt's fol..
lowers are trying to advance his fortunes
through publicity and misrepresentation.
The colonel himself has almost abandoned
his original claim that he' is a republican
rump nominee, and Is now Insisting that
his fllowers in most of the states shall
cut loose from all past political affilia
tions. He wants a free hand to seek re
cruits for his new organisation among-
oemocrata. the socialists and th.
populists as well as among republicans.
He has decreed the death and dissolution
of, the old republican party. Under such
circumstances U Is - manifestly Indecent
and dishonest for his supporters in Ne
braska. South Dakota. Kansas or Cali
fornia to pose as regular republicans.
They cannot be for him and remain reg
ular republicans. They cannot be for
him and remain regular, since the all-

took the agitation seriously It would tend
to divert them from more effective ways
of influencing society In matters vital to

The Epoat Chance.. .
You say: "Democracy is not essentially
a form of. government; it Is essentially
a principle. of human life."
I would say that democracy Is essen
tially both a. form of government and a
principle of human life. It la conceded
that for some purposes an autocratic -r
even despotic form of government is more
efficient than a democracy, where th
people to a degree manage their . own
But' democracy as a form of government
is more than the making of good laws
and their efficient enforcement. It is the
development of the individual, the culti
vation of self-restraint. ' It makes a man
out of a machine, encourages individual
initiative,, builds up a "character that
not afraid to assume responsibility. And
in demanding his own equal cliancs he
comes to realize that the other' fellow
is entitled to that same equal chance.
And this same Idea is the unanswerable
argument ' In favor of woman ' suffrage.
No matter if, by giving women the vote,
the result would not be better govern
menteven if for a time government were
less efficient still, on the .broad ground
that democracy . Is essentially a human
principle, the right of the individual to
aid in determining his or her own gov
ernmental environment, and the growth
and development that follows the recog
nition of such a fundamental right would
be more than ample Justification for In
cluding women In the electorate.,
Democracy as a form of government
creates and enforces that higher democ
racy which Is a principle of human life. '

Justice for the black race is Indefinitely
There are shifty and tortuous passages
In this letter which attempt to befog ,the
essential question. It 'is represented that
the progressive party'' could hot rest Its
future upon the black race, when, In
truth, the question is why the new party
could not make its appeal , to both races
Land thus ignore the color line, as the
constitution does. Dust is always thrown
about by; Mr.. Roosevelt's Irrelevant di
lation upon the welcome hk party gives
to the negro in the north, where .thn
colon line In politics is negligible. But
no one can fall to see the-essential point
of this humiliating performance, which
is nothing but the bid of an audaciously
opportunist politician 'for white men's
votes by; showing the black man the
door. ' ' , -
the feeling of, disgust at -the spectacle
Is neeeesarily - .strong . for two. reasons.
Wnen he was president, Mr; Roosevelt
paraded himself as the. defender of the
biaek 'race's politieaU tights In the. south
4byi forolng, upon the, remons tratlng .whttts
of Indlanola a negro" postmistress, and
toy forcing tfpon the v remonstrating
'whfos " of 'dhaleston, S. C., a negro
collector, of . eustortis. The "door of hope"
for ' trie black race ,he preached most
zealously in , his eloquent letters to
outhern cltUens at that, time.', The
Rooseveltlan conviction that southern
communities like the clty( of Charleston
should be' compelled -to accept a colored
collector of the port was so unshakable
that Dr. Cram was kept In office
throughout the second 'Roosevelt admin
istration. But those were the days when
Mr. Roosevelt was not looking for white
men's votes In South Carolina.
The second reason why a feeling of
disgust overcomes one is that Mr.
Roosevelt's new party is proclaimed to
be peculiarly one of ideals. If it were
not for his holier-than-thou attitude in
forming a party without bosses, a party
without the withering touch- of big
business and crooked politics, , a party
which should respond to every heart
beat of humanity and every human
aspiration for the noble, the good and
the true, his present attitude would be
less exposed to the derision of the un
godly and the tears of tie saints.
Important test of regularity in any party
Is loyalty to the decisions of that party's
The genuine republicans should insist
in every state on having an organization
and electoral ticket of their own, pledged
to Taft and Sherman. The temporary
Inconveniences of. separate action should
not be considered, since only by keeping

In August when the sky Is blue and rye
is yellow In the shock, -'
When Phyllis, fair and fond and true, as-
, . . sumes a gauzy, dainty frock.
When there begins to be a glow -upon the
waiting apple's cheek.
When much that none but lovers know
and only lovers learn to speak
Is whispered In each leafy nook and un-
der every gleaning star,
I like a nice, limp-covered book, a porch
swing and a good cigar. .
In August, when the world is free from
turmoil and from angry strife.
When sails gleam whitest on the sea and
few hardships darken life.
When katydids begin to spread the news
through both the hemispheres, .
When here and there a splash of ,rd
upon the verdant scene appear.
When gentle Phyllis looks her host in
airy cause that lightly clings,
I like to He around and rest, forgetful of ;
Think not that I am old and bent, that
I am merely one of those
Whose ardor gone, whose vigor spent, are
satisfied to sit and doze:
There still are prises fair and rich that
later I shall strive to claim.
And still I seek the pathways which shall
ultimately lead to fame,
But when. In August, lovers look in eyes
where alad responses are
I like a nice, limp-covered book, a porch
swing and a good cigar.
In August, when the stubbles gleam on
slopes that gave the reapers cheer
TIs sweet to sit and smoke and dream
and know that Phyllis lingers near;
I might be one of those who stray in
leafy avenues and sigh,
But I prefer to doze away while gentle
Phyllis hovers nigh;
Since she is safely ra'ne I need not ply
her with Love's questioning.
Therefore, I calmly smoke and read, for
getful of important things.
