COHYO.N, April 27. At the Grant banquet
of the MkJdlcse cImU tonight, Henry L.
l.stubrook of New York s.ild that soma one
1 uU declared, "yon can alwas ti'll a Boston
n.uti, but you ran t. It'll him much." lie
bud recently met a Moston man, "evidently
iino of the fifty-seven varieties of democrat
now on ti e murktt," who told him that tee
A.lddicnex rluti was noted chiefly for Its
fbnin u and the corpulence of Its members
ill was therefore a fit exponent of the
r. p;:bilcnn party, whose principles could
he rymbolized by a hill of fare, and con
tinued :
l.'c thought he was sarcastic, but I
I i.nti'nrci to thank the gent reman for his
:n- in mm. ami remark d (hat a iu!l dinner
. fail was indeed a bidge of the republican
puny-Just a the badge of the democratic
, inrty otiKht to he un empty soup plate.
I'lirtherroorc, tliat the question of food had
I i" aiid rimtiiuied to be, the niont ap-
pui.i.K cii, siii.n confronting the human
rare since Joseph us Import uncd by hi
m.irvlng brothers, and that a political partv
Which t-hould adopt a hill of fure as Its
piuty pl.ttform, and "make good" for all
it k mool would snlve the most pre-
pNMN!i problems in sociology and good
Sovei rime iit.
These lltea dilettanti Rive me a lsssl-
. t'.m.v I'ney are more critical than fruitiul
a;"d fn to Justif v the ansertlon that sill
" 'ire liars, which assert ion, by the way,
e;i.i,i.atd from the llible and not from the
V hlte irni-e. It Is conceded that Job, who
wn i piitli-nt mnn, spoke somewhat hastily,
but out of a si run provocation, when lie
fulled u II men llnrs; and If our preshlent,
V ,io In noi n .l ib, ha called some men
llnrs, he, too, has spoken out of a strong
Work of llnosevelt.
In cj-ltlelslng the sorlety manners of
I I couoro Koosevelt be pleased to remem
b r that he Is engaged in a disagreeable
but necessary work. He Has tackled the
hydra and is cleaning the Augean stables,
two Herculean tasks rolled Into one. And
ymi have observed how every time he digs
into the compost there Is a smell of am
monia and something squirms. Please to
remember also that Thcodoie Roosevelt Is
not a lawyer, but Is one of the few men
outside of that profession ever called to
the presidency; and It mnv be that for the
work In hand the Almighty, who Is still
Imminent In His universe, chose him be
cause he was not a lawyer and was there
fore untrnmmeled by legal quillets and
nw-lnphydcal refinements. The president
lias Secretary Root to advise ns to the law,
and Taft. and Bonaparte, and above and
beyond these, the supreme court of the
I'nlted States, whose august power would
paralyze his arm and nullify his act as
quickly as It would abrogate on act of
congress If constitutional limitations were
tr.'uihcended. Don't worry about the con
stitution so long as our supreme court Is
what It Is.
A friend of mine colled Theodore Roose
velt a big policeman with a club. He spoke
In derision, but I adopt the metaphor. A
policeman strikes at a concrete evil, and no
one expects him whtlo belaboring: a male
factor with one hand to fumble the statutes
with the other for a definition of his power.
) lout him, abuse him, criticise and vllllfv
Mm os you please, we know that the
.rrld?nt has grappled with a Franken
lein crenture of sinister aspect, the great
est power In the United States except the
I ovci nmeVt Itself, nd he will teach the
creature to serve and not to dictate. The
.iplo as a whole applaud whut he has
ilone. however much some of us may dep
t.cute his manner of doing It. It Is easy
to lillrm thut he could hsve accomplished
n U that he has accomplished without say
In., among the trumpets, Ha. ha! with
out thunder or shoutrng, without pawing
the valley or swallowing the ground or
tithFrwlue cavorting like a war horse In
buttle. This may be true, or it may not
bo true; but It is true that a "still alarm's
would not hSve alarmed the country, nor
anybody else, much less would It have
cu;it 1 a public sentiment.
Revivalist la Politics.
It sometimes requires thunder und llght
. nini to clear the atmosphere, and after
the whirlwind comes the hi 111, small voice.
1 limey Theodore Koosevelt Is to politics
what the revivalist is to religion. He bids
us wok'.-. repent und reconsecrate ourr
selves to the Ideals of our reuubllc.
Recently Mr. Carnegie and his friends
have been shouting for peace through a
iiiKgiphone and were romewhat disgruntled
becauae flocsevelt asked for it over the
long distance telephone. But Roosevelt
knows, as CSrant knew Grant, whose blrth-
,oi ate celebrating and who In my
opinion did as much for peace, both In war
it ml d'plomacv, as ony man who ever
llvtd Hooscvelt knows, I say, that crooked
tli i' "i oe made straight before peace
Is possible. As an organized Hope the
tribunal of The Hague is a beacon mt on
it lull, warning, guiding, beckoning. Ilium
' initlnr;. Hut, In the language of Mr.
Cleveland, we ore confronted by a theory
end not a condition which are Mr. Clave
land's exact words slightly deranged to
txpiers the universal peace idea.
I do not lihune the csar of Russia for
udvoc.'ttirg r';i(n nor for asking the na
tions to do what he has done (with Japan's
iiKslMa-icc) Id - the way of disarmament;
but for the people of Russia st this time
to appeal from the hog to The Hnsue
wriiild be nltruism with a ventrennce. Rus
sia is laboring with the thought of liberty,
and Americans kn' that there are
thoughts so big onlv a Caesarlsn op.
erslion can give them birth. As for my
self. 1 ardently hope that there may be
no peace cn earth until every royal crown
hss been minted Into the coin of a re
public, for. as I live, I would rather never
to have lived at all than to live the sub
ject" of anybody. Uh. I admit that re
public are not perfect. They are as
wicked as human nature. But they are also
a good as human nature, and kings and
czars are no better.
Peace After Rla hleoosnesa.
Fellow citizens, God promises peace only
ns a condition of rightenuKnes.1. You must
r ot, as the prophet, Mb ah, snys, bite with
your teeth and at the same time cry,
"Peace!" Peace without go id will to men.
peace without honesty, is not peace, but
war grown pusillanimous. The struggle Is
but transferred from the march to the
mart, from the carr.D to th rapltol. from
the field to the forum. It means more law
yers, und as a lawyer I object to It I am
already too crowded in my profession.
But. ah! whn our nation's mighty hoots,
that had been buttling to make the Dec
laration of Independence something more
than a rhapsody of words, had laid down
their arms; when the siMdlcr had vanished
In the citizen; when brothers had once
more recognized the claims of brotherhood,
did we dream rf Christ's "Peace on Earth .'"
And yet if force had only yielded to- fraud;
If greed had conquered glory; If, in the
words of tle Poet Healf:
If by treacherous yielding chance
Our land hath trafflced Its splendor anger
For only a lean Inheritance
tif outward lustness and Inward languor;
Why then, O comrades, It were full well
If the shocks of our armies were not over;
For the Lord made men to conquer hell
And not to fatten like ktne on clover.
I do not pretend that my admiration for
our strenuous president Is without alloy.
1 sometimes think that as an executive he
borders on the executioner and as an ex
emplar he would be dangerous If he were
not impossible. Fancy all the yruth of our
country suddenly obsessed by his demon of
energy good heavens! what would become
nf i he law of the conservation of energy?
As Mark Twain said of Napoleon, he at-J

position tinges my philosophy and Inclines

Vice President Fairbanks paid- tribute
to the character of the general-president,
and In concluding said:
The occasion hss failed of Its purpose
If we do not draw from It Increased devo
tion to the discharge of our duties as
American citizens. In the contemplation
of a great character who never turned his
back upon his duty we may take renewed
Inspiration ' for the work which lays next
our hand. Swift moving events bring us
responsibilities with which past genera
tions were unfamiliar. God Almighty puts
some new burden upon each generation and
it Is for us to discharge our duty as Grant
discharged his. to the best of our ability,
according to Ihe lights which are given us.
We applaud Presided Roosevelt for what
he has so splendidly done. He has well
Interpreted the public Interest and we are
resolved to uphold his hands to the utmost
In the accomplishment of his work In the
Interest of Justice and fair dealing In trade
and commerce. We are In the midst of n
widespread moral awakening. We are In
a day when men must take thought of each
other and when there can be no unre
strained power among those agencies which
are engaged In our upbuilding. Justice
must rule. That Is the righteous and Im
perative demand of the people. Justice In
trade and Justice In commerce. Justice to
labor and Justice -ft capital. Justice Is the
north star In the i.rmnment of our purpose
and It must guide our feet, It Is a dull
man who does not realize that we are In
the midst of a peaceful evolution which Is
making for a better understanding In the
world of trade and commerce, and he Is
dull. Indeed, who does not recount th
K potential fact that the evolution Is lrre-
