Aa chairman ot th Roosevelt cam

Montana givea definite form to the
colonel' contest for th nomination
hr issuing an attack upon President
Taft and his administration. In this,
we believe, he la starting out on the
wrong tack. President Taft and Col
onel Roosevelt both have abjured
personalities in defining their own
plans for the nomination contest. If
they can afford to refrain from at
tacking one another, their advocate
certainly can.
One or the other, Taft or Roose
velt, is to be the republican nominee
for president and he win have to go
before the people on the record of
the party the policies J inaugurated
by Roosevelt and pursued further by
Taft. President Taft deservea bettor
at the handa of those republlcana
who do not agree with him now, and
so doea former President Roosevelt,
for the country la not going to for
get that it took Mr. Taft upon Mr.
Roosevelt' recommendation. Every
attack, therefor, 'made by Roose
velt follower upon Taft reflects Jut-t
as much upon Roosevelt . -

Color Line Drawn by Lawyers.
Th executive committee ot the
American Bar association raises a
very delicate point in ousting from
membership in the association a dis
tinguished member of the profession
because bis skin happens to be black.
Although lawyer enough to hold the
office of assistant attorney general
of the United State under appoint
ment of Preaident Taft, the partic

a principle that would be extremely
difficult to defend in a court ot Jus

objection Is purely upon hi color,

If th American Bar association

A person Is eligible to membership
who fulfill certain requirement,
none of which refer to color, and all

The American Bar association has,
in our Judgment, committed an
egregious mistake In permitting a
color question to be raised and an
