A Permanent President
Just by way of illustration that a
third term occupant of tho White
House carries no Intrinsic terror,
Rev. Lyman Abbott, who la asi
ciated with Colonel Roosevelt in
editing the Outlook, digs up and re
prints from an Issue of that journal
for April 16, 1879, "when it waa un
der the same editorial direction
which controls its opinions today,"
an editorial combatting the demand
for a limitation of the presidential
term. The basis of these demands
is pronounced the Idea that the
American people have not sense
enough to know when they are well
served and to choose their own serv
ants. The gist of It Is contained In
this concluding paragraph, which Is,
as we submit, to all Intents and pur
poses, an argument for a permanent
There la no objection to three terms,
or to thirty terma. If the man la a good
one; no reason why America should not
keep Its prime minuter and the presi
dent la ita prime minister In office aa
lone aa England kept Pitt In his place.
Indeed, a food presidency that should
lat twenty yean would be a great boon
to the country, which suffers very seri
ous Injury from tha presidential battle.
which not only occurs every four years,
but keeps the great political parties
akirmlahlnf all the meanwhile.
Irrespective of our views about
giving a good president three terms,
we doubt whether any widespread
sentiment prevails that would favor
giving him thirty terms, or that the
people of this country would throw
oft their innate distaste for a perma
nent ruler. The custom hsa become
generally accepted to limit a presi
dent to two terms, and If there were
to be any change In our constitution
affecting the presidency, It la a aafe
prediction that it would be in the
direction of a single term extending
possibly over six or eight years.
Tho chief point of vantage here
suggested for a permanent president
la it would set store by experience
and retain the services ot a tried
executive In preference to a new
man who hat to pick up the threads,
no matter what bla previous career.
If tbia argument hat any potency,
then in the present case It would be
a caution against making a change
la the White Houae now merely for
tho aake of change. . It would ac
cord President Taft .a second term,
whoso propriety no ona questions,
rather than supplant him at tho ond
ot a first term by reinstating hit
predecessor for a third terra. The

Wnen Pnblio Sentiment if Aroused.
Tho power of public sentiment
haa recently been forcibly . demon-
st rated In New York, where a for
mer valet ot a wealthy New Yorker
la released from prison, .where he
waa sentenced to thirty years for
burglary, in order to establish what
ho and friends profess to be bis In
nocence of the crime alleged against
him, and to which he confessed un
der Decnllar circumstances. ." The
story is known by now, and
whether the prisoner establishes his
Innocence or la again convicted upon
hla retrial or not, hit temporary lib
eration In deference to - popular
elamor that be be given aaother
chance to prove himself will stand
aa a most Imposing and Impressive
example ot what a systematic de
mand for Justice may accomplish,
Tho Judge before whom the con
fiction waa had and by whom tha
sentence waa pronounced Joined In
favoring a new trial. Whether guilty
or not, the general belief la that the
man Buffered an, unduly eevero pen
alty, tor men are commlttlag bur
glary and oven murder, and being
convicted every day who get far
more lenient treatment than thla
rich man's former valet got.
Aa element of mystery haa been
woven into the case, but not to the
exclusion ot tho main fact that the
prisoner, after partial tern la Jail,
comes out tor a rehearing In prompt
response to a vigorously expreesed

A Parcels Post Bill.
The bill for a limited parcels post,
which the house committee on post-
offices and post roads unanimously
voted to Insert Into the regular post
offlre appropriation bill, has many
features of vital public Interest, and
some that will satisfy long-pressed
demands by the railway mall clerks.
In the first place. It congress abould
pass tho measure In Its present form
It would abolish the anomaly of our
government granting to foreign
senders of mall matter rates and
concessions which It does not allow
for domestic patrons. t
The part of the bill most Interest
ing to the mall men la a clause tor a
new classification, for which they
have been atrtvlng a long time. It
also would grant them freer exercise
of their right of complaint for griev
ances and permitting them to organ
ise their forces for protective pur-
let, Tha question Involved is
where the lino of discipline should be
drawn, and It is understood there Is
where one ot tho contests will renter.
As for tho parcels post, It shall be
gin July 1, 1112, and continue nntll
June SO, 114. on a limited basis,
pending tho Investigation and report
of a commission upon the question of
a general parcela post system. The
bill defines Its proposed parcels post
In these two paragraphs:

tion of fourth class matter and not weigh
