The "visiting statesman" was in

"more long-suffering" than we think.

And. indeed, they would be doing the

Woodrow Wilson said that when

i.aruinai titwn misel hU after-
noon walk to-day. For the nrst time
In years, one of the very few In the
ivmj-me years mat tie has been;
the only prince of the Catholic
Church In the United State, he misl
ed that afternoon stroll over the
streets of Baltimore where he listen-!
e4 to banker and beggar and took toj
heart the troubles of "his people."
Instead of the walk that had be-
j come a feature of that part of the!
1 city in which he lived, the Cardinal!
sat this afternoon on the temporary
1 and listened to the great men of the
nation speak In eulogy of hU life.
The Great Men Present,
President Taft, Vice President
Sherman, Chief Justice White, farm
er President Roosevelt, Ambassador
Bryce of Great Britain, Speaker
Clark, Senator Root of New York,
Governor Crothers of Maryland, for
mer Speaker Cannon and Mayor Pres
ton of Baltimore sat with the Cardi
nal and all of them except the Chief
Justice spoke in praise of him.
Among the six hundred guests seat
ed on the platform behind the Presi
dent, the Cardinal and other speak
ers, were members of the House of
Representatives. Probably a more
distinguished gathering was never
held in this country, outside of Wash
ington, and the wheels of Govern-1
ment came pretty near a stop while
those who sit in charge over them
paid honor to the Cardinal.
The armory holds 15,000 people,
its builders say, and it was crowded
to the doors.
The Cardinal sat in a red plush
chair in the center of the stage. To
his right was president Taft; then
came former President Roosevelt
and Chief Justice White and on the
Cardinal's left were Governor Croth
ers, of Maryland, Ambassador Bryce,
Speaker Clark and Representative
The ovation that greeted Mr. Roo
sevelt as he came up the steps with
Chief Justice White was remarkable,
but that which greeted the Cardinal
as he climbed the stalre with Presi
dent Taft was far more remarkable.
The Cardinal wore the red robe,
the skull-cap ofi red and the deep
green ring of office. Through all
the speeches he sat, smiling, every
changing expression of his wrinkled
and kindly face and his bright eyes
attesting to the pleasure that this
tribute afforded him.
He smiled like a boy when Presi
dent Taft introduced him to Mr.
Roosevelt. He laughed with glee
when the Chief Justice shook his
hand, and the ghost of a grin flicker
ed over his face when Speaker Clark,
mixing for a moment politics with re
ligion, declared that he had been a
potent force for good "among both
Catholics and Republican."
The President's Speech.
Following Governor Crothers, who
presided, President Taft made the
first speceh. He said, in part:
"This assembly, I venture to say,
can find few counterparts in history.
We are met as American citizens to
congratulate the American primate
of one of the great Churches of the
world upon the twenty-fifth anniver
sary of his accession to the highest
office in his Church, but one and up
on the fiftieth anniversary of his en
tering the Church as one of its
priests. We are not here' as members
of any denomination. We are not
here in any official capacity. But we
are here to recognize and honor in
him his high virtues as a patriotic
member of our political community,
and one who through his long and
useful life has spared no efforts in
the cause of good citizenship and the
uplifting of his fellow-men.
"As American citizens we are
proud that his prominent part in the
church brought him twenty-five years
ago the rank of cardinal. The rarity
with which this rank is conferred in
his Church upon bishops and priests
so far from Rome is an indication of
the position which he had won
among his fellow churchmen. But
what we are especially relighted to
see confirmed in him and his life is
the entire consistency which he has
demonstrated between earnest and
single-minded patriotism and love of
country, on the one hand, and sin
cere devotion to his Church upon the
other. One of the tenets of his
Church is respect for constituted au
thority and always have we found
him on the side of law and order, al
ways in favor of peace and good will
to all men, always in favor of relig
ious tolerance, and always strong in
the conviction that complete freedom
in the matter of religion is the best
condition under which churches may

Washington, D. C, June 6. 1911.
The fact that the Democratic party
is not united on any political princi
ple is so notorious that Democratic
partisans have frequently pointed to
their position on the tariff as being
one on which Democrats were gen
erally united. This has been made!
possible on account of the broad and i
vague slogan called a "tariff for reve-j
nue," under which forty-seven differ- j
ent varieties of Democrats can shel-j
ter, each one having varied views, j
and often diametrically opposing
' " r c j
views as to how to raise revenue by j

very nearly evenly divided on thejthat Mr. Kitchln then aquarely crit-t

while the other half claimed that j
they were for a duty on wool "for
the purpose of revenue," and still
others announced boldly that they
were in favor of a moderate protec
tive duty on wool for the protection
of the wool growers.
This deep and wide split in the
party caused Mr. Bryan to rush to
the front in defense of the Demo
cratic doctrine of free wool. In a
leading editorial in his paper (The
Commoner), he drew?4 the issue
squarely and denounced all who are
opposed to free wool as being not
only traitors to the Democratic
party, but also "guilty of the crime
of hyprocisy" In addition when they
claim that they were for a duty not
because they were protectionists, but
because they were In favor of raising
revenue from a duty on wool. Mr.
Bryan, In his editorial, said:

"The Democratic voters have a

Mr. Underwood, in his defense
went further and tried to show that
a duty of 20 per cent on raw wool
would not increase the cost of cloth
ing in woolen goods.
The Action of the Democratic House
When the Democratic House cau
cus met a few days ago to pass on
this troublesome and tangled wool
question, it was clear that the two
wings of the Democratic party were
as wide apart as the Poles, and much
feeling existed. The House caucus,
however, finally voted unanimously
for a 20 per cent duty on raw wool,
and it was given out by the Associ
ated Press that the House Democratic
caucus had, unanimously repudiated
Mr.4 Bryan. This is not the exact
truth of the matter, however. Grad-

icised Senator Simmons and other
Democrats who tried to justify them-
selves in voting for a dollar duty on
lumber, on the ground that they
voted for it not as ap rotective tariff
duty but as a Democratic revenue
Mr. Kitchin at that time called at
tention to the fact that this explana
tion of Mr. Simmons was very thin,
because he and Senator Aldrich
agreed entirely about the one dollar
duty. Now we find Mr. Kitchin vot
ing for a duty on wool and giving
exactly the same lame excuse for do
ing so that Senator Simmons did in
voting for a duty on lumber.
Where Speaker Clark Stands.
During all this heated controversy
and final straddling compromise.
Speaker Champ Clark, Democratic
candidate for the Presidency, looked
much worried but never opened his
mouth. Some of his friends, how
ever, called attention to the fact that
it was not only necessary to vote for
a duty on wool to raise revenue, but
it was also necessary to hold the wool
States in line for Clark for President,
and to get the electoral vote of those
States for a Democratic President.

Anneolis, Md., June 5. A unique
J situation exists here with regard to
j the registration of negro voter for

The case was taken to a higher
court, where it is pending.
To-day was the first of three days
for registration, and tbe registrars,
who faced an infraction of the State
law if they registered more than half
a dozen negroes who could comply
with the law, or a possible violation
