PRESIDENT .W. H. TAFT.
Today William Howard Taft took the
oath of office, and has become the suc
cessor of Theodore Roosevelt ss Presi
dent of the United States. The World's
Mr. Taft is better known to the peo
ple than most men have been when they
entered the Presidency. Mr. Hayes,
Mr. Garfield, Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Har
rison, Mr. McKinley, Mr. Roosevelt
had all been known as governors, or as
members of one or both houses of Con
gress, but they were not known to the
whole people as Mr. Taft is, nor had
they had the experience in the excutive
department of the Natimal Govern
ment such as he has had. We are
not likely, therefore, to have any
great susprises in Mr. Taft unless,
indeed, there be people who suppose
that he is merely the heir of his pre
decessor. If there be thosejwho think
this, they have a surprise in Ftore for
The difference between the two men
is a difference both in training and in
temperament. Mr. Taft is a lawyer, a
mm of most methodical intellectual
habit). He has been a judge. He
weighs evidence carefully. A possible
weakness in his excutive character may
be his great care to see theother man's
point of view. But, if he is unlike Mr.
Roosevelt in temperament, he is close
akin to him in courage and in aim. He
does not do things in a spectacular way.
He is not a master of a hundred crafts.
He is not at home in the literature or
the love of combat and of the jungle,
and of rough sports and of natural his
tory. He is neither a preacher nor a
fighter for the love of preaching and of
fighting. But he has the same love of
fair play and the Bame courage to
stand for it.
The two great Roosevelt policies
the Square Deal in practical affairs and
the right use of natural wealth-will
be forwarded as vigorously by Mr. Taft
as they have been by Mr. Roosevelt.
But there will be less noise. There will
be a more orderly succession of events.
There will be fewer messages. There
will be less friction, less physical energy
but the same knightly quality and the
same courage. Mr. Taft may originate
less than Mr. Roosevelt orginiated, but
he may achieve as much. He goes into
the great office with as kindly a regard
of the whole people at any President
of recent times has had it the begin
ning of career, and with their high ex
pectations. It is u great experience to
live under two successive Administra
tions like these, when the mere for
malities and dignities of a great office
do not so overcome the Excutive as to
reduce him to a mere formality.
One of his first acts was to prosecute I X
the Northern Securities Company. He
I unearthed more frauds and prosecuted
more offenders than had been done by
all previous administrations combined.
His motto was righteousness in busi
ness affairs. He was fond of out door
life and sports, and he gave a new
impetus to right living. He set in
motion the movement for the conserva
tion of our natural resources. He com
pelled a settlement of the great coal
strike. He secured the provision for
the reclamation of millions of acres of
arid lands by means of irrigation. He
secured the building of the Panama
Canal. He reorganized the diplomatic
service of the United States, ard gave
it great influence abroad. He brought
the Japanese-Russian war to a close.
He reorganized the army and navy,
and sent the naval fleet around the
world. He has never hesitated to as
sume responsibility where responsibility
The mass of the people have believed J
in Mr. Roosevelt and his policies. He
has maije some trivial mistakes, but he
has never mislead or deceived the peo
ple. He has always been actuated by
a noble purpose. He retires with a
volume of masterly achievements to
his credit, which entitles him to and
will give him the lasting gratitude of
his fellow countrymen, and honored by
the whole world.
"To love, to laugh, to be kind, to
play fair, that's all."
"Many a man looking for sympathy
needs two swift kicks rightly placed."

E. G. BOVEY SON 1
We KREiji'EXTLY hear outcries
against the commercial spirit of the
time. When it does rot come from '
sheer ignorance or parrot-talk, it us
ually eminates either from the envy of !
those who are too lazy and self indul
gent to be thrifty, or from the envy of
those who have wealth against those
who are getting wealth. The commer
cial spirit is the spirit of civilizatior,
and always has been and always will
be. The great men in the arts and
sciences are, to a larger degree than ;
is imagined, the sons of those who
have become successful in the commer
cial world. It was the commercial I
spirit that discovered and colonized the
New World. It was the commercial
spirit that opened up the avenues to the
Orient. It is the commercial spirit
that inquires into the desires, developed
and undeveloped, of man -his mental
desires no less than his physical desires
- and then ransacks the universe for
the things that will satisfy those de
sires. It was the commercial spirit
that sent Prof. Hansen through Siberia i
and the Sahara desert in search of new !
kinds alfalfa and clover seed that will j
be adopted to the climatic conditions of j
the Dakotas and Texas. It was the
commercial spirit that sent Livingston
and Stanley into the heart of Africa.
On the trail of commerce has always
followed the missionaries to spread
the seeds of a higher civilization. Of
course, the commercial spirit has its
disagreeable, its evil side. It was the
commercial spirit that brought African
slaves to our own shores. But until a
substitute for it in awakening men's
minds and men's ambitions is found,
