PREPARING ELECTION REFORM.
The call for a convention to con
sider reforms in the manner of con
ducting primary elections is paving
attention to a subject which is vitally
connected with the very life . blood
of our nation, lue evil or our po
litical life lies in the carelessness
with which the vast majority of the
American people view the subject
of politics and politicians. As a
good-natured nation we are prone to
let things take their own course, and
when a thing is done which is wrong
upon its face and disastrous in its
results, we are apt to dismiss it with
the word that it is simply "politics"
and pay no further attention to it.
The evils of bossism have grown so
pronounced of late that more serious
concern is being given to the . roeth-
ods by which cheap and unscrupulous
men attain to such places' of influence
and. eminence in the conduct of our
government, while men of morality
and ability are compelled to sit by
andwatch this degradation in high
The United States senate was once
the ablest parliamentary body in the
world. Men with kingly intellects
and spotless characters sat as mem
bers, and the deliberations in the
days of Clay, Webster and Calhoun
were conducted upon principles of
high morality and patriotism. As
late as the days of reconstruction
the United States senate contained
some of the best statesmen our na
tional life had produced, but in the
last two decades none can gainsay
that the tone ot statesmanship and
average ability has deteriorated
"When we compare Clay or Webster
with Senator Murphy of New York
or Quay of Pennsylvania, what a
shock to every citizen's pride, and
yet Quay, and Murphy are more the
rule than the exception.
It is through the manipulation of
politics at the primaries that such
men are able to secure election to
the senate. Ordinarily the boss who
rounds up the heelers primary day
cannot himself secure election to
what was once an honor coveted by
the most distinguished, but he is
able cf ten to dictate which one of
his chosen friends shall wear the sen
atorial toga. The result is seen in
the aimless wrangling and disregard
of public interests with which the
senate in the last few years is
The Ameiican people are fit to be
governed by the best men the coun
try can produce, and it is worth the
while that the citizens should spend
time and thought to secure this end
To arouse public sentiment to a still
further degree is a first necessity, and
the calling of a convention, while in
itself barren of direct results, will
aid in the final attainment of the de-
' sired object.
The New York Independent, in
commenting upon the protest from
Oregon regarding the proposed ap
pointment of Attorney -General Mc
Kenna to the supreme beneta, says
"There are two opinions about Attorney-General
McKenna, one in
sisting that he does not rank as
lawyer or judge with the men who
occupy the supreme bench ; the other
that be has eminent judicial capacity
and will be a most satisfactory asso
ciate justice. An extraordinary
petition, signed by two federal
judges, state judges and lawyers in
Oregon, has been sent to the presi
dent, asking him not to appoint Mr,
Kenna, alleging that he, has. neither
the ''natural gift", acquired learnin
nor decision of character" to qualify
him for any judicial position of im
portance. This, we say, is extraor
dinary. Whatever motive has
prompted it, the president must give
it consideration. Only men of
eminent legal ability and known
judicial c'apacity should be nomin
ated for the supreme bench."
An examination of the returns of
the recent election in New York City
shows that the average vote on the
Tammany ticket was 148,000, Van
Wyck receiving 142,000. The aver
age Republican vote was 64,400,
Tracy receiving 55,800. The aver
age vote of the Citizens' Union Is
62,100, Mr. Low receiving 77,200.
Mr. Low was the only candidate for
mayor who ran ahead of the average
vole for his ticket. ' The normal Ee
publi:an vote ought to be about
110,000, on the basis of 106,000 cast
for Harrison in 1892. Taking that
figure, it would appear that the vote
for Tracy was scarcely half of the
party strength. To whom - did the
other -55,000 go? asks a New York
paper. The answer is easy. They
did not go to Mr. Low, and .un
doubtedly most of them found their
way to Tammany. Thus is substan
tiated the charge that Piatt is respon
sible for the defeat of good govern
ment m New York.
