Election day, Nov. 4.
The peacemakers might now try to
see what they can do with the side
which began the strike.
A Hanly Chief.
ONE OK the qunllties most
strongly commending Presi
dent KooFevelt to public es
teem Is his whole-souled ap
preciation of merit In subordinates. No
more loyal man to those officially be
neath lihr. ever sat In the presidential
This trait, notably exemplified in his
Harvard tribute to Hoot. Taft and
Wood, was shown again at Westfleld,
Mass., the day before the carriage ac
cident. In Westfleld Is a normal school
nnd Secretary Cortelyou Is the presi
dent of Its uluninl association. Tho
president took occasion at Westfleld to
pay his respects to his secretary and
he did the job to perfection. Mr. Cor
telyou subsequently refused to' let the
stenographer transcribe the notes of
this speech and tried hard to establish
n censorship over the newspaper men
In the presidential party; but it leaked
out that the president spoke of him In
the highest terms. To quote from one
The president told luiw much Mr. C'or
tclyou's loyally and diplomacy and man
liness and human sympathy had meant to
the nation In Its hours of Brief and In its
hours of busiest activity, lies nald that If
the school could only nnee In n while
turn out men like the secretary to the
president II would soon he known as the
peer of the tno-:t fumnus Institutions In
That was just like Theodore Roose
velt nnd it goes far to explain why Cor
telyou's first words after his return to
consciousness following the carriage
accident were of solicitude for the
president. It Is now known generally,
as it had long been known at Wash
ington, that Cortelyou merits all that
the president said of him. Ho Is sim
ply one man In ten million. If be lias
any fault it Is modesty. It is not right
to hide talents like his under a bushel.
Senator Piatt lias again predicted
that the strike will soon end. .Mr. Piatt
has the well wishes of the "entire com
munity" for success its a prophet.
Our Consular Service.
PROFESSOR .MONROE, one of
the accomplished lecturers at
our city Institute, and a gen
tleman whoso opinions on
many topics are entitled to rank as
authoritative, is, we believe, mistaken
in bis Judgment of tlte American con
Imperfect, It certainly Is; nnd un
derpaid, and too frequently changed,
nnd sometimes a haven of refuge for
individuals sent abroad for much the
same reason that Alkalai Jim went to
New York "just to give the West n
rest." Hut that it Is generally neglect
ful of American commercial Interests
or iueillelent In Its watchfulness for
opportunities of trade extension is, we
believe, not only not proved but not
true. The multiplying statistics of our
trade growth with foreign nations; the
Intelligent and practical reports which
come dally to our state department
from consular representatives In for
eign cities reports which nre admit
tedly tfo much superior to those pre
pared ;by the run of other consuls that
they haye been referred to by tho for
eign o'iilces of more than one other nn
tlon ns models and recommended (to
Imitation and, lastly, that natural ap
titude of tho nveruga American for
holding his own In a competition all
those things Incline us to tho belief
that Professor Monroe, In noting de
fects In our consular service, has ne
gleeteil to appraise adequately Its
points of excellence,
It would undoubtedly tend to the Im
provement of tills service were It raised
to the plane of a profession, with high
requirements of orlglnul entry, assur
ance of tenure of position during health
nnd gbo'd- behavior mid the stimulus
of a fjilr system of promotions, in an
Ideal feltuatlan there would probably
bn no politics at till, as we use the
term to describe partisan Intrigue nnd
spoils.-' ,But our observation has not
coincided with Professor Monroe's as to
the effect which appointment to a con
sular position hns upon tho average
placeholder In this department, even
though he be, when at home, a worker
of results In the party machine. In
stead ot making him careless, Indiffer
ent A"d neglectful of appearances and
results, the opposite has been true In
most of the cases within our knowl
edge. There Is something about Old
Oiory in a foreign land which, brines
oul unsuspected capacity In every
American beholder, most of nil ono who
has upon him tlm dlp;nltyxoC represent
ing It. Thin tins been true on lnntl rinit
sea from the licfflnnhiff of our history,
mid we still have large fnlth In (he
Innnte resourcefulneBS nntl patriotism
of our fellow cltlzoiV
There Is n fashion nt criticism of tho
American consular service which goes
to extromcR nnd Bonerullzes from In
adequate particulars. Wc doubt that It
does much Rood, tt Is too much like
the nntl-linpprlnllsts' censorious iiutR
nlfyhiR of army Ills. We prefer to rIvu
full credit for good work plainly done
and point out shortcomings temper
ately. Motormnn Mnildon says he hud tho
right of way; but motormen, nutomo
blllsts, nnd nil other scorchers should
'learn that the right of way Is' not syn
onymous with the right to kill.
The State and the nines.
C- OVERNOll STONE'S nsserllon
that nn extra session of the
Jk legislature would cost less
than the maintenance ot the
mllltln In the strike nrca is probably
correct, but It by no means follows
that the convening of tho legislature
would obviate tho necessity for tho
presence of the militia. In that event,
the commonwealth would have two bills
of costs to settle Instead of one.
The governor, us is well known, Is a
sturdy advocate of compulsory arbitra
tion. More than n year ago he drafted
it bill on this subject and It has been In
his mind ever since. Circumstances
then were not piopltlous for the bill's
enactment, but now he evidently thinks
that they are. Although at the time of
Its preparation we discussed tho gov
ernor's measure at length, we now re
produce It for the public's information;
Whereas, Much trouble nnd destruc
tion of property and life have resulted
from disputes between employer nnd em
ploye In tills state and It is advisable as
a police regulation for the protection of
human life and property that some sys
tem or plan should receive legislative ap
proval that would prevent the recurrence
of the numerous dllllcultlcs that have oc
curred In your state.
Therefore, be It enacted, etc.
First That whenever any serious dis
pute arises between employer and his or
Its employes In this slate of stifllelcnt
gravity to threaten a cessation of labor
on the part of the employes, they shall
within three days after having passed a
resolution to arbitrate the dispute by a
majority vote at n meeting called for that
purpose, select three arbitrators and shall
within two days after such selection no
tify the employer ot the names selected
as arbitrators to settle the dispute In
controversy between tho said employer
and employes. The said employer shall
within three days thereafter select three
arbitrators to lt with the three selected
by the employes and notify the committee
of the employes within two days of their
selection. The six arbitrators thus se
lected, or any one of them, shall within
two days notify thy president judge of
the court of common pleas of the county
wherein the dispute exists of their selec
tion of arbitrators to settle the dispute
ponding. The said president Judge shnll,
within three days aftersuch notice, select
a fair. Impartial citizen of the county,
.. l.n Lnu n nrfiii.nnttnii It, ,1 ItnctllnuU IV'tIV'
Willi the dispute, to sll as a seventh ar
bitrator In the settlement of said dis
pute. Theo arbitrators shall, within
three days after the selection of the sev
enth arbitrator, meet nt some conven
ient point, hear the testimony upon both
sides, examine witnesses, hear argument
of eounsel and consider and determine
the dispute In controversy and decide It
and notiry the employer nnd employes of
their decision, and said decision shall be
final and conclusive upon both parties
without exception or appeal or writ of
Second In case the employes III said
dispute or any considerable number ot
them, refuse to appoint said three arbi
trators for a consideration and settlement
of said dWpule but shall strike or cease
to work, it shnll lie a sufficient reason
for the governor nf the state to appre
hend violence and breach of the public
pence and he shall send sufllclent stnte
troops at once to the place of the dis
pute for the preservation of public order
and for the preservation of life and
property and tho keeping of the public
peace, and said troops shall protect not
only the property and the lives of tho
citizens of the community, hut shall pro
tect such men as desire to work for tlte
employer in said dispute.
Third In case the employer, after re
ceiving notice of the appointment or said
three arbitrators by the employes, shall,
for a period of three days, refuse to ap
point arbitrators to represent it or him In
said arbitration, such fact shall be suftl
clont menace and cause to npprehend riot
and disturbance of the public peace and
loss of life and property to Justify tho
Interference of the state officials, and it
shnll be the duty nf the Inspector of
mines for the district In which the diffi
culty nrose. If It arose out of and con
cerning a mine, or If a factory or work
shop It shall be the duty of tho factory
Inspector of tho state to at once close the
mine or factory or place of operation, and
prevent all further work nnd labor nnd
business at said mine, factory or place
of operation until said dispute Is ended,
and said employes return to labor, and in
case of resistance to the ald Inspector,
It shall be the duty of tho governor to
aid and protect nnd nsslst him In the
carrying oat of his order by tho employ
ment of such military force of the state
as shall ho necessary.
Fourth The decision of said arbitrators
Minll bo rendered within ton days from
the time of tho commencement of their
Fifth The expenses nf said arbitration
shall be paid oat of tho treasury of the
slate, each arbitrator receiving $3.00 per
day during said henrlng, not to exceed
In 'time ten days, and the subpoenaing of
witnesses and the mileage nnd cost anil
attendance of witnesses shall bo paid
likewise out of tho treasury of the Mate
In the same manner as witnesses In Judi
cial proceedings aro paid, A stenogra
pher nnd typewriter mny bo employed by
the decision of the board at a cost not to
exceed ?!0.00 per day each, who shall take
the notes of said hearing and reduce them
to typewritten copies, nnd they shall be
for the uso of tho board and for tho uso
of both sldei of the controversy, nnd
one copy of notes of tho testimony shall
be filed with the award.
Sixth When said decision Is rendered
by said board, It shall bo died In tho
court whero the seventh arbitrator Is ap
pointed nnd shnll bo a final judgment of
leenrd and shall bo enforced by said
court by Injunction or restraining orders
as the conditions may require, viz.; If
tho employer or employes refusn to carry
out the award, they shall be restrained
by order of tho court from operating tho
property, and If tho employes refiibo to
currv out tho award they shall ho re
strained by order of tho court from In
terfering with uny othor person desiring
to work, and the governor shall send suf
ficient military forco to tho seeno of
operation, on request of the sheriff, to
assist him In enforcing the orders of tho
court, but tho governor (hull only direct
tho assistance of the National Guard
tn enforce the orders of the court where
the sheriff has tried to enforco tho orders
of tho court by the uld of deputies and
In (he main, wc look upon this meas
ure with favor, though in some details
it is crude. For example, the ten-day
limit upon the arbitrators Is too short,
amounting In u complicated case to u
travesty on justice; and the cluuse
denying exception appeal or writ of
error Is too drastic. Appeal should Ho
somewhere In case of gross miscarriage
ot Jurtlce or, production ot vital new
evidence) hut tho public Interest could
bo safeguarded by requiring the finding
of the arbitrators to be obeyed during
the pending of the appeal.
It In manifest, however, thnt such a
bill, If enacted Into Inw, however valu
able It might he nt the beginning of a
threatened Industrial upheaval, would
not lit the present conditions In the
anthracite legion. The existing dispute
more than "threatens" a "cessation of
labor"; the cessation hns for four
months been an established fact, nnd
the governor htm already "apprehended
vlolcncp nnd breach of the public
pence" and sent state troops) his power,
therefore, save In the addition of
troops, has been exhausted. N"or would
the state's threat to close tho mines
operate In tho present dlfllculty as a
leverage upon tho pporntors, for the
obvious reason that the mines, with" few
exceptions, are already closed; and' the
public Interest calls, not for keeping
them closed, but for their speedy re
opening. There remains, It seems to us, but
one method by which a special session
of the general assembly could expect
antly approach a solution of tho exist
ing situation, confiscation being out of
tho question. That would bo by con
demnation and purchase, of the mines,
with stnte ownership. For some time
It hns been apparent thnt the drift of
public opinion not, we believe, of curc
ful and Intelligent public opinion, but
of that airy and superficial opinion
formed by those who ilnd It convenient
not to think has been In this direction.
Hut without pausing to discuss the
subject In Its broader aspects, the more
Immediate point to be noted Is that
even state ownership, hurriedly entered
upon under temporary impulse, would
by no means assure freedom from
strikes, though It might change their
character from physical to political.
Certainly so radical a departure would
need to be well pondered and could
hardly be taken nt the drop of the hut.
Anxious us we are to see this mine
difficulty ended nnd peace and good
will, with general prosperity, restored

THE PKESIDENT'S ESCAPE.
From tho Philadelphia Press,
President Rosevelt has had tho nar
rowest of personal escapes. A man has
been slain at lilt side. Tho entire party
with him on the landau overturned by a
Pittsflold trolley car has coino to the
edgo of death, tho president with them,
Ills providential escape, since Provi
dence laid on his shoulders his present
responsibilities, will profoundly Impress
tho entire country. Theodore Hoosovelt
has become visible to tho whole land
and all Its people as few men are. even
nmong presidents. Ills mnsculino per
sonality comes close to men. Ills vigor,
his courage, his sincerity, his sense of
public service, his outspoken love of
ciunllty, his dally practice of a frank
nnd open democracy theso all have
brought him close to tho dally Ufa and
dally speech of his fellow-cltlzens.
There were millions yesterday forenoon
who suddenly were mado aware, as they
read bulletins nntl henid tho speedy ro
port, which by noon hud flashed through
every hamlet, how deep would bo their
sense of personal loss If Theodore Itooso.
volt were snatched nwny, Ills sudden
peril and his escape, an sudden, has for
an Instant put nil men who heard yester
day's flying rumor where tney would
have been If tho worst had come.
The Instant regret, tho willing sym
pathy, tho sudden senso nnd shock of In
dividual los linvo their lesson. Ho has
his fuults. Who has not? Ho Is Impetu
ous, Ills words cut farther nud faster
than men always like. Prompt, energetic,
headlong If you will, ho Is often Intoler
ant of other methods and other ways of
men ns ilncere und us patriotic, but moro
Put ho Is an American, lie has our
faults, hut he has also our abundant vir
tues. Wo love him for tho very blun
ders ho makes. IIo Is ns dear for our
national fuults as for our national vir
tues. Judge him, back him, support him
as men should bo Judged who are always
trying to do their lovel best.
Had untoward fate snatched him yes
terday, tho land would bo swept with sor
row, unstinted pralso and deep-lived re
gret, lie lives. Cilyo him the benefit
while living of what men would havo felt
If ho had gone. Ho deserves it. Ills work
needs It. Not, for narrow Issues of com
