HEADS OF TWO REPUBLICS CLASP
HANDS IN FRIENDSHIP.
THE MEETING OF TAFT AND DIAZ
Two Cities of the RIo Grande Full of
Enthuola8tlc Visitors The Day
Marred by Out One Un
HI Paso. Tex. Tho long expected
meeting between President Taft of
tint United Slates and President Diaz
of the republic of Mexico occurred
here Saturday. Outwardly it was at
tended with a display or soldiery, a
Hare of trumpets, a boom or cannon
and a pomp or ceremony suggestive of
supremo nulhorit.. but in tho actual
handclasp or the two executives and
in tho exchange of courteous greet
ings which passed from lip to lip there
was simple but cordial Informality.
President Diaz was tho first to
speak. Ho assured President Tnft of
his warm personal regard and bin high
esteem or the man who had accom
plished so much In the Philippines and
in Cuba and elsewhere, and who had
now the honor to bo the chief execu
tive of so great a nation as the United
States. President Taft, in simple
American fashion, declared ho was
glad to know the president of such a
great nation and especially glad to
know the present president who had
made tho nation so great.
Both presidents dwelt upon the cor
(Utility of the relations existing be
tween tho United States and Mexico
President Taft declared that Satur
day's mooting was not necessary to
make stronger the bonds of friend
ship; it merely typllled tho strength
of the bonds as they already exist.
There were lesii than a score or
persons permitted to witness tho meet
ing or the two presidents. Kven these
were excluded later, when President
Tart and President Diaz withdrew
Into an Inner room or the chamber of
commerce building, whoro tho historic
meeting occurred and were only at
tended by Governor Creel or the state
or Chihuahua, former ambassador to
tho United States, who acted as in
terpreter. Tho scene of the day's
ceremonies shifted from time to time
from this thriving little American city
across tho shallow, wandering lllo
Grande river to the typical little Mexi
can settlement of Cludad Juarez.
In the customs house there Presi
dent Diaz received a return call from
President Taft and again lato Satur
day evening, entertained the American
president and a largo dinner party at
a state banquet which in all Its sur
roundings in color, of wealth, plate
banded down from the tlmo of Km
peror Mnxmllllan, and In every care
tally considered detail probably was
the most notable feast over served on
the American continent.
'The day was marred by but one
untoward incident. A lad of llfteen
years was stabbed to death by a
school companion Just as President
Tart was stepping from his special
train upon Its arrival In tho center
or tho city nt 9:40 o'clock Saturday
morning. The boys wore in the crush
or people gathered In the plaza, and
In pushing forward to catch a glimpse
of tho preside it. became involved In
a light. Noll Morgan, nged fourteen,
pulled n knlfo and before bystanders
could realize what was happening,
Lawrence Wlmber, aged fifteen, was
lying mortally wounded at their feet
a red How from his heart marking the
ebb tide or his lire. Before an am
bulance could reach tho scene the boy
The crowd about tho place was so
great that oven tho wagon from the
ninrgiio could not make its way
through, and during most of the tlmo
President Taft was at breakfast the
body lay on the pavement not forty
yards nwny. Some thoughtful perron
finally tore dowti two Amorlcan Hags
from the decorations about the plaza
and spread them over tho dead boy's
form. Morgan was arrested and Is
held In the county Jnil. Ho Is utterly
crushed and a heart-broken boy.
An interesting incident of tlio day
was tho declaration of neutrality over
the K Chanilzal territory, a part of
the city of Kl Paso, over which Me.
co Is contending for sovereignty. Tho
Kl Chanilzal territory was formed
when tho lllo Grande river took one
of Its periodical spells of contrariness
and changed Its course a mile or two
to tho westward. The contention of
the American authorities Is that this
change wns gradual and wan duo to
natural accretion from tho American
side. Tho Mexico authorities contend
that the change was duo to an avul
sion or sudden change of course, and
that tho United States gained no addi
tional territory by the shifting of the
natural boundary line. Tho matter
still is in dispute. It vjib agreed be
tween tho governments or Mexico and
of tho United States that this terrl
torry. which lies on both sides of the
International boundary lino, should be
regarded as neutral, and thnt neither
tho United States or Mexican Hag
should bo displayed thcroupnn.
President Taft and President Diaz
sat sldo by side nt tho banquet. Tho
conversation was carried on partly In,
Spanish and partly through the Inter
preter 'who stood just In tho rear of
tho presidential chairs. Mr. Taft re
tains much of tho Spanish he gained
In tho Philippines. Ho received from
Mayor Batconas of Juarez a cordial
invitation to visit tlio city Saturday
An Interpreter began to intorpret
tho mayor's conversation when Presi
dent Taft Bald ho not only understood
but greatly appreciated tho compli
ments of the mayor.

GOVERNOR DISCUSSES FEDERAL
ARE NOT COMPETENT TO DECIDE
Nebraska's Executive Casts Reflec
tions on Legal Attainments of
Bench and Cites Methods
In a statement lllled with i egret at
tho federal court for having (Iceland
Invalid the .Nebraska bank guaranty
law, Governor Sliallonberger has
called the attention or tho public t.
tho need for more care In the selec
tion of dignitaries of the Inferior
courts, and points out that congress
must amend the laws so that laws,
resulting from legislation of a state,
shall not bo carried at once from the
control of the state courts and lodged
in tho federal courts.
The Governor's Statement,
In his statement given out for pub
lication Governor Shnllenborgor says:
"Tho decision Is not wholly a sur
prise. It is exactly what those who
for partisan or selfish reason are op
posed to any effective guaranty of de
posits law desired. It goes to the
very heart or the question and denies
the right of the state to require tho
banks, which exist by virtue of their
charters, to pay a certain tax to
create a guaranty fund, or to prescribe
a form and manner under which the
banking business shall be conducted.
It appears to leave banking no more
of a matter for public legislation, or
limitation than the grocery or butcher
"I believe that the great mass of
our people will accept this decision
with regret. The law which hr.s been
set aside by the decree of the court
was fraught with great benefit to tho
people. I am sure that the people de
sired tho legislation, and were
anxious to see It put Into actual prac
tice. "The theory of our government is
that the people shall rule. Their only
voice is the legislature, it should bo
supreme, and since it is the people's
voice, all doubts as to the constitu
tionality of Its nctlon should bo re
solved In Its favor, and not to defeat
its expression or the people's will.
Tho overthrow of legislative enact
ments by the interference or the ex
ecutive, by the use of patronage or
the veto power, and the nullification
of laws by our courts, has steadily
tended to degrade the power of tho
legislative branch of our government,
and to make it a thing for politicians
and lobbyists to play with.
"The one thing that stands out in
this matter(is that If Inferior federal
courts can at will step In and set
aside tho carefully matured nets of
stato legislation, nnd assume jurisdic
tion that ordinarily belongs to the
state courts, then the latter becomo
but mere legal llgureheads and of no
possible use to protect the legisla
tures and the people In their rights.
'The reined lies with congress to
go to the very root of this whole ques
tion. The only federal court specific
ally created by the constitution Is thu
supieme court of tho United States.
All Inferior federal tribunals are thu
result of legislative enactments. Their
jurisdiction enn be limited and de
termined by congress. The procedure
in cases which deal with state mat
tors entirely, Mich as this law was
designed to do, should be confined to
the state court of last resort, and
from thence the appeal. If there is
any, should be directly to the supremo
court of the United States.
"Our highest federal couit has the
entire confidence of the people.
Though created by tlio will ot" tho
president, such is its high character
and reputation that none but great
lawyers over reach a seat upon Its
bench It Is tho common belief of all
men that the Inferior federal judges
are very often appointed as a reward
for personal or party service.
"A lawyer of little standing at tho
bar, by tho power of partisan ap
proval, or by renson of some political
service rendered to those in author
ity, mny bo robed in judicial ermine,
and the rights of a great state come
before this now made Judge for de
termination. Though Daniel Webster
and John Marshall should be resur
rected nnd expound the law and the
constitution In behalf or tho people,
yet a Judge or ho little learning that
ho never would have been called Into
tho case as a counsellor, may wag his
head and say: 'This Is the law, or
this Is not tho law,' and, behold, his
Judgment Is the law. It Is bootless
to pass Inws If courts aro to resolve
all doubts wd to constitutionality
against the validity or legislative en
actments. The world moves and busi
ness conditions require now nnd hot
ter laws, and the peoplo aro entitled
to have their will stamped upon the
statute books or the stnto and nation
but they must come to know that tho
last citadel or power is in tho courts,
and ir their friends are not thero, they
have monger hopes of real roller."
