ai tide In Middle's MaK.iine, In
which William Allen White kIvcs it In
to his imagination In an alleged
skett h of the "easy boss." Then can
be no doubt v.hate'.er that Mr. White's
poitrnyal of the New Yoik senator as
a man destitute ot patilotlsin antl Kind
ly Impulse Is rio-wI.v unjust. Theie Is
ample 100111 for exception to the l'latt
kind of politic s without the necessity
of iiiilulRli'f; In peisoaal dctrai t'on. We
aie sine that .Mi. White had no malic
ious intent. He simply meant to pio
duce a bit of line wiltiinr, and in the
enthusiasm of that piupose he rcot si -11
rated liom the fait' a mishap to
which all wilteis aie at times liable
While Thomas C. l'latt is a nivstery
in many ways, tho key to which nobody
holds but hiinselt, if, indeed, he has
not Ions ,'iko lost It, thoie has neei
been the sllKhlesl foundation for an
adieise leflrctlon on his- pctsonal in
toKilly or prhale honor. In the K.nne
of politics he lias done many things
that hae calletl toith shaip uillcisni.
and It is b no means ele.11 lo the aei
ave obseier that h's mlltleal methods not f.mij desentd mm h ot tit's

iritli in elides ueaiest lo him have

The man of whom sudi a tluni; 1 in be
said tiuthfully can luinlly be as black
as Mi. White would paint Mr. l'latt.
Neieitheless, we don't like the way
in wlih h Senator l'latt Riahbed a t opy
of Mi Chile's. 1.111 to the white house
and pioeeeded to cult dilze thepiesideiit,
as If the piesldeiit had anithiie; to do
with what William Allen White wiltes
for the magazines. I'lntt's excuse foi
this is that White claims to be a fiieinl
of the piesidont. Suppose that be tine:
what of It? Is the president of the
I'nitnl States 1 (.sponsible to Thomas C.
l'latt for those who ilaiiu lo be his
fi lends'.' Must he strike off his list of
acquaintances every peison who
chances to incur the Ill-will of each
individual senator? This pioposltlon,
when analyzed, is obilously lidlculous;
and it looks lo us as if Mr. Piatt, in
trying to establish It, had lost his cus
lomaiy command of himself.
