Taft or JUoKveltt
The republican atandard bearer to
be named at Chicago will be either
William II. Taft or Theodore Roose
velt That the competition will be nar
rowed down to a clear cut contest be

avowed himself in the fight some
To those who have been watching
the current of political events, the
Roosevelt announcement ia not at all
unexpected, although it ia more un
conditional In form than anyone
would have predicted.
None will deny that Colonel Roose
velt's personality has a wonderful
hold upon the mass of the people. As
president be came nearer being the
type of popular hero than any one
ho has occupied the executive office
In recent years, and he made a record
of which his party, and his country.
are Justly proud. But Mr. Taft has
likewise been an honest, conscientious
and courageous president, and has
made an enviable record of achieve
ment for which he has a right to ask
the customary endorsement. Just aa
did President Roosevelt at the end of
his first term.
For ourselves, The Bee believes
Mr. Taft baa a better claim to a sec
ond term than Colonel Roosevelt has
to a third term. It baa been often
proved that when they take time to
consider a subject thoroughly the
great majority of our American peo
ple are not carried away solely by
amotion. Mora than three months
remain before the nomination, dur
ing which certain weaknesses of Col
onel Roosevelt aa a candidate, as
compared with Prealdent Taft, will
have to be given their dna weight by
thinking folks. Aa tersely put, the
decision must be reached "purely
from the standpoint of the Interests
of the people aa a whole." or, in other
words. In answer to the question
whether the interests of th people
aa a whole will be subserved by up
setting all precedent and refusing a
renomlnation to Prealdent Taft, who
baa made good and earned a vote of

It is a task the new regime baa to
meet to turn a people accustomed by
ages of fighting face about to see and
recognize the advantages of the
peaceful pursuits of industry, and
this is Its largest task. It waa to
this Juncture In Mexican history that
Diaz, great In his day, brought Mex

Dias to the extent be should, he will
show himself equal to the work he
inherited from the man he over

the task with most intelligent determination.

Kadero's land Schema. .
One of the demands made upon the
Diaz government and to which the
iron ruler waa about to yield to when
too late, was that of new agrarian
rights, with a view to better dis
tribution of the land among the peo
ple. Madero'a proposal to parcel out
14,000,000 acres amoag the Mexl
tans, therefore, seems, upon Its face,
to be a stroke of wise diplomacy. No
secret Is made of the tact that this
m an attempt to pacify certain mal
contents and It ought to have a very
vital effect depending upon the pop-
alar appreciation of such a con
sloa with Its attendant opportunities.
The land is not, of course, to be
doled out unconditionally lor the ask'
ing, but the conditions appear to be
very reasonable ones. President Ma
dero will have don a great service to
Mexico and ita people If he can per
suade any considerable number of
the recalcitrant to lay down their
arms and take np th Instruments of

COMPILED FROM BEE
Minneapolis Is going to give voca
tional training a trial on a large
scale. It has arranged to erect a
building costing $1,000,000 aa a tech
nical high school, the last two years
of whose course will be wholly voca
tional along business and Industrial
lines. Thus It reduces the question
at one to a practical test and Ita
experiment will be watched with
eagerness by other cities of the west
contemplating a similar step.
Of course, this Is not the first voca
tional training school, by any means,
but it will embrace unique features.
Minneapolis claims the largest high
school attendance In proportion to
population of any American city,
there being 6,100 pupils In ita five
high schools and Ita total number of
children of school age ta 43,000. It
stands to reason, therefore, that its
new school may be expected to be
The belief Is growing in this coun
try that there la decided lack of
proper articulation between th last

tional training or not, are setting

HOMER, Neb., Feb. S.-To the Editor
of The Bee: This moat eventful of all

six years, marks th beginning of his
tory for me. At that time 1K4 I went
with my father, Samuel H. Combs w
