Taft and Roosevelt.
In spite ot th p-rslotent efforts of
trouble breeders who have been bend
ing every effort to esuange the presi
dent and fcrmt-r presfdent, the state
ments given out from Beverly and
Oyster Bay must dispel all doubt as to
the substantial harmony of purpose of
Mr. Taft and Colonel Roosevelt.
The dlensIon within, the repub
lican party in New York3 over whicn
the two national leaders were said to
be in disagreement was merely one
phase of the flfcht between Governor
ilugheg and tha .New York state or
ganization ore primary legislation.
The primary elation bill recom
mended by Governor Hughes, as Is
well known, had been repeatedly
blocked, and the enlistment of Colonel
Roosevelt's Influence on the governor'sj
side is, what led. to. his rejection for
the position of temporary chairman of
the New York state convention.
President Taft's letter leaves no
doubt where his sympathies have been
and are In this controversy. It proves
that while he would have preferred
to avoid what has actually occurred,
o not only bad no hand in bringing
it about, but had taken positive steps
to persnade tho - leaders to get to
gether. The president goes even
further when he expresses the opinion
that. the selection ,of Vice President
Sherman for temporary presiding offl
over Colonel Roosevelt is a mlBtake
that ought to be corrected.
So far as Colonel Roosevelt is con
cerned Jt goes without saying that he
wilt find a way to take cafe of hlrnself
nt,he politics of his own state, and
that his repulse In the first skirmish
la no- safe indication of what the final
outcome will be. ' This much, how
ever, Is reasonably certain -that in
New,. York state politics, and probably
throughout the country, President
Taft and" Colonel Roosevelt, so far as
they' take part at all, will be found
working together and aiming in the
Aigimilation of Korea.
Nearly every war makes changes In
our geographical charts, although the
changes are not all consummated at
once. The assimilation ot Korea by
Japan is an outgrowth ot the war with
Russia in which control of Korea was
one of the fruits of victory awarded
For three years the Japanese gov'
ernment has been maintaining a semi
protectorate over Korea ostensibly for
the purpose of ascertaining by ex
periment what sort of contiol would
bo the most suitable to the people ot
the Hermit Kingdom. But it has taken
only three years to reach the point
where the Japanese feel sufficient
self-assurance to blot Korea off the
map as a separate country ' and to
substitute Japanese authority abso
lutely for the authority exercised con
ditionally by . the emperor of Korea
and bis higher officials.
ThV assimilation of Korea by Japan
will be a change chiefly of form ot
government rather than in the seat
of power, because the Koreans long
ago lost their Independence of action
and have been subject to Japan since
even before the signing pf the Ports
mouth treaty. According to best ob
servers Korean Independence was fore
doomed no matter what the outcome
of the war . because, had Japan lost.
Russia would without question have
stepped In and seized Korea as Its

world has been moving. What is at
tempted ia a glimpse here and there
back: ten years, which most people re
gard as a comparatively short period
Ten year ago, we are reminded, we
had open war of railroad rates and
free passes on the railroads. The in
terstate commerce law was practically
a dead letter and the commission was
a harmless bureau of statistics. The
real regulation of railroads, to say
nothing of other large corporations
was regarded as a mere threat of lm
Ten years ago, we are again re
minded, we were at war In the Philip
plnea and Agulnaldo'i rebellion had
provoked a sympathetic rebellion lu
and about Boston, while many persons
regarded Imperialism as the over
shadowing great question of our fu
ture. President McKlnley was pic
tured In cartoons as an emperor. The
democratic party was what Mr. Bryan
commanded it to be.
Tea years ago, we are still further
reminded, the Panama canal, the great
reclamation work in the west, the
policy of conservation, the change of
the Dingiey tariff, the Japanese-Russian
war, were all In the future, and
bow long ago 1900 was may be gauged
by recalling that Queen Victoria was
still on the throne of England.
The march of events in ten years
makes volumes of history, although,
seldom realized or fully appreciated
by those who participate in them or
view them as spectators. If we will
at any time take a casual inventory of
the last ten years, we will agree with
the conclusion that there is enough
there "to civ a cheerful and hopeful
turn to the thoughts of every man who
looks backward as welt as forward."

It happened once that Nebraska had
democratic governor who was as
sured of renominatlon and was wait-
ng, only for the primary to be held to
be again proclaimed by the democrats
to be their standard bearer. As he
looked around he saw a small group of
populists whose nomination he cov
eted, and thinking he might as well
have two nominations as one, he took
a mighty oath that be was also a popu
list as well as a democrat, although he
was careful to save the second tiling
fee and keep It In his own pocket. By
having his name put on the populist
ballot in addition to the democratic
ballot, some of his friends voted for
him as a populist thereby subtracting
their votes from those cast for him
as a democrat, and lo and behold,
when the figures were footed . up, It
was found that he bad missed the dem
ocratic nominaton by his greed to get

said, that It would posstDio o maae

the American farmera would only cultivate

that in Ireland it would be Impossible for
many years; probably, to overcome the pre
judice against American corn, because the
people of Ireland attribute tne scourge oi

from the Unlted'Slatta to relieve those who
were suffering from famine. Governor Tll
den said that he would not llva t6 sea the
dav when the American farmers would be
found to have raised as many aa J.OOe.000,000
bushela of corn, Ut he thought that Amer
ican farming should be bo developed in the
course of a generation that from 3,000.000,
000 to 4,000,000.000 bushels of corn would be
harvested In a single year.

because they hoped that ha would make pol

ment of his party that it had been unable
to seat in tha Whlta House the president
the party was convinced it bad elected.
Others thought that the governor waa talk-Ins-

ation to what he was Baying. But if it
should prove to be -the fact that the Amer
ican farm-era this year have harvested $,000,-
000,000. bushels of Iadlan corn, then the pre

would be done In a generations tiro win
have been almost exactly fulfilled.
In the offices of some of the railway
companies, particularly those in tha vicinity
of Forty-second street, much gratification
Is expressed over the probability of. the
corn harvest. So tar as tho railroads are

crowd. Hence the shutters are to be put
up, the grandstands dismantled, and lota
are to be staked out on the tracks and
stable ground. "It has been denied," com
ments the New York Globe, "that the rac
ing establishment Is a gambling machine.
We have bee-. told that thoroughbreds
were put on the tracks because of the love
of the sport. We have also been told that
men maintained expensive studs because of
an altruistic desire to better the breed of
horses. But alack and alas! these fine pre
tenses are now pretty well rubbed off.
Men do not go to see or to be out In the
open air. but to bet. There Is not the love
of. the speeding ponies that has been pro
claimed. Thousands will crowd a base ball
park with no lure except the zeat of the

I love the good old sayings
That the ancients used to say;
They ease the weary straylngs
Of this busy, modern day.

With pr'.ces on the wing.

A saylnn most absurd Is
When the whule Is said and done.
Two canvasbacks In any bush
Are worth in any land,
Three times as much as any thrush
You aver had In hand.
Then there's the one on Duty
"Don't put off what you can do
Today . . ."that ta a beauty
For sheer nonsense through and through.
There's lots of things that on can do
Today that I recall, .
By waiting for tomorrow you
Won't have to do at all...
