TKE DOWNFALL OF TAFT.
The change in public sentiment
toward President Taft since his
inaugural ion is one of the most
marvelous things in the history or
American politics. He came into
power with a united party behind
him and was generally admired by
the press and public, while even
Ihe opposition bad a friendly feel
ing for him. This feeling began
to change when he so p prm iiileil
himself wilh a lot of trust lawyers
as his cabinet advisers. The next
thing that (ended toward il was
his shameless alliance wilh Aki
' nn.M.a,,. His signing of
diplomacy" was such a departure
from Hie fiii'innp liir..ii.. ..f ii...
generally felt ashamed of it. The
coiisiani nroor nun. ih mimm.
istration was distinctly adverse to
'he efforts of Dr. Wiley to prevent
the. poisoning of food for the
benefit of big business arrayed
the whole vast army of American
housewives against him.
Then a number of bills were
prepared at the White house and
sent lo congress wilh the demand
that Ihey should be passed with
out change, which were so direct
ly for Hie benelit of the interests,
especially Ihe bill for the govern
ment of Alaska, that a large part
of his own parly revolted.
Today the president stands
without a following except that
which Ihe big interests give him,
and oven that following is some
what divided. While' there is no
fooling against Taft as a man, his
policies have been such as to
completely reverse the estimation
in which ho was held when in
LOT OF THE OLD MINISTER.
The Northern Hapl isl conven
tion has taken up the question of
making a holler provision for old
ministers. 'Ihey have raised
S-250,000 and expect lo got a $1,
000,000 endowment. Considering
Ihe rather frivolous choice by so
many churches of very young
clergymen, it seems only square
lo do something for Ihe elderly
men who are set aside by this
preference for youth.
It has been said that clergyman
crosses Ihe dead line at 40; that
subsequently he must expect a
lower salary and less command
And yet in every other profes
sion a man has hardly more than
acquired a foothold at 40.
The plight of many elderly min
isters at 50 to GO is pathetic.
Their utterance has ncnniroH
ripeness, their counsel worldv
wisdom, and their heart has
learned sympathy with all kinds
of people. Hut because they feel
a lit lie. awkward while nlavinir
liddlo-do-winks al the Christian
Fndeavor social, Ihey are con
demned as lacking magnetism. Of
course, on (he other hand, the
more closely a minister keeps to
his nung people, the more he will
look al things from their point of
view, and the more he can interest
