championed by President Taft.
Tbe deadly amendment which Sen

Mr. Bryan proposes to engraft upon

insisted on modifying the arbitration
treaties so that the United States
should be obligated to submit to ar
bitration only such cases as we felt
sure we would win, and be free to
refuse to arbitrate whenever w
feared we might lose. . Mr. Bryan Is
willing to let tb democratic voters
arbitrate bis preference for president

his choice, but declines to arbitrate,
or rather announces he will reject

anomaly, but it is a fact.
The New York state commissioner
of agriculture has recently addressed
a communication to Governor Diz,
advising him that the demand for
horses in that stste is greyer than it
has ever been and far sc-eds the
supply. He says that annually 80,
000 horses ar Imported by New York
from tb west at an average coat
this Is astonishing of $200 apiece.
This official goes on to say that
New York farmers should devote
mor attention to the breeding and
raising of good horse. Doubtlces

Women to Seform Base Ball
One of the big league base ball
clubs Is owned by a woman, who ex
ercise an active Interest In Its man
agement, Her proprietorship, by
tbe death of her husband, sug
gests the possibility of another field
for woman 'a competition with man
in business. There are many Inter
esting aspects to th proposition.
Possibly women's Influence Is needed
In base ball for refining and reform
ing the game and its conduct. Even
so grand an institution as base ball
might, in the course of time, come to
need some such renovating prors.
Anyway, Mrs. Brltton of tbe St.
Louis Cardinals, seems to tblnk there
Is occasion for something of the kind.
Heretofore downtown ticket offices
tn St. Louis have been maintained In
saloon. Hereafter, by Mr. Brit
ton's decree, tickets for Cardinal
games bought down-town will be
bought at drug stores. She admits
it is a concession to her sex. Why
not? ' Women ar great patrons of
the game. And probably with more
women proprietors, th fair patron
age might vastly increase. W have
no doubt that tad Mrs. Brltton come
onto tb diamond soma year ago
when ateina and schooners were in
vogue, she would bav substituted
pop bottles, so now, perhaps, sine
rea the pop bottle la In disrepute,
especially In St. Louis, as Umpire
Evans will testify, possibly th mor
cultured patrons of base ball might
look to Mrs. Brltton for a bit of
beneficial reform In this direction.

New Tork Times (lnd.).
Is President Taft the sam maa that
be was In UOk. when he waa making his
campaign for the presidency, or is be a
very different mas, different tn heart,
different to principles and beliefs? If we
can believe Mr. Roosevelt, there must.
indeed, have been an astonishing change
In Mr. Taft. In his Carnegie hall speech
Mr. Roosevelt represented th president
as a believer tn an oligarchical form of
governoment th government of th
many by a few. These are his words:
"Mr. Tsft's position is perfectly clear.
It Is thst we have tn thla country a
special class of persons wiser than the
people, who are above tbe people, who
cannot be reached by the people, but wbo
govern them and ought to govern them:
and who protect varloua classes of the
people from th whol people. That Is
th old, old doctrine which has been
acted upon for thousands of years abroad;
and which here tn America has been
acted upon sometimes openly, sometimes
secretly, for forty years by many men In
public and In private life, and I am sorry
to say by many Judges, see
"This doctrtn la to m a dreadful doc
trine, for Its effect la. and can only be.
to make the courts the shield of privilege
against popular rights. Naturally, every
upholder and beneficiary of crooked privi
lege loudly applauds the doctrine. It Is
behind the shield of that doctrine that
crooked clauses creep Into laws, that men
of wealth and power control legislation.'
This "doctrine" which Mr. Roosevelt
calls so dreadful, the doctrine that th
whol people must submit te the rule of
a few of their number, tbe doctrine that
serves a a ablald for the upholders and
beneficiaries of "crooked privilege." haa
not been expounded or advocated In any
writing or uttaranc of William H. Taft
that has ever come under eur notice, and
we have attended somewhat closely to
th things he has written or said. But
Clearly Mr. Roosevelt believes that Mr.
Taft Is an oligarch, a bUvr In th rul
of th few, and In a kind of government
that protects the beneficiaries of crooked
It waa not so la ISO. For during th
campaign of that year, when Mr. Taft
was th republican candidate for th
presidency. President Roosevelt wrot a
letter to Conrad Kohra of Helena, Mont..
In which h spoke of Mr. Taft In terms
of the highest praise. After describing
th qualities of a true friend of reform,
a true foe of abuse, he said:
"In Mr. Taft w eisv a man who com
bines all of these eualitlea to a degree
which no ether man In eur public life
since the civil war haa surpassed. To a
flaming hatred of Injustice, to a sown
ef all that Is base and mean, to a hearty
sympathy with tb oppressed, he unite
entire disinterestedness, oourag both
moral and physical of the very "highest
type, and a kindly generosity of nature
which makes him feel that all of his
fellow countrymen are, to very truth,
his friends and brothers."
Certainly thla Is not th man described
tn th Carnegie hall address, tbe man who
believes In a form of government that
would be the refuge and shield of op
pressors and robbers of th paople. Mr.
Roossvelt In his letter te Mr. Kohrs re
ferred to the decisions rendered by Mr.
Taft," when he was a Judge of a federal
court Of these decisions he wrote:
Thy mark th Judge who rendered
them as standing for tbe rights of, the
whole people; as far as daylight Is from
darkness, so far Is such a Judge from
the tlme-earvars. the truckler te the mob,
or th cringing tool of great corrupt and
corrupting corporations. Judge Taft on
the bench-as since tn the Philippines, in
Panama. In Cuba and In the War depart-mnt-hoived
himself te bo a wise, a
feerUes and aa nprlght servant ef the
whol people, whose services to the whole
peopl wr beyond all price, e e e Let
all fair-minded men, wag workers and
capitalists alike, consider yet another
fact In one ef his decisions upon th
bench Judg Taft upheld In th strongest
fashion and for the first time gave full
vitality to the principles of th employer's
liability for Injuries done to workmen.
This was before any national taw on th
subject was enacted. Judg Taft' sense
of right, his Indignation against oppres
sion In any form, against any attitude
that Is not fair and Just, drov htm to
take a position which wss violently con
demned by short-sighted capitalists and
employers of labor, which was so far la
advance of the time that It was not gen
erally upheld by th state courts, but
which we are now embodying In the law
of th land, e e e elected, he haa
shown by hla deeds that ha will be tbe
president of no class, but of the people as
The president of th peopl ss a whole?
n u nnthin- of th oligarch In that.
Th Taft of 1PM Is th direct oppoalt
of th Taft of th Carnegie half speech.
There has been an a ma ling change some
where? Hav th peopl taken not or iit
Have they been aware of the changes
which have transformed the broad
minded, generous-hearted friend of all the
people Into a believer In th nil of a
few and In a denial of the right of th
many? It simply passes belief that our
president should so change, and nobody
but Mr. Roosevelt find It out.
There is en alternative supposition. Is
It nut In Mr. Roosevelt himself that tbe
ehang has taken place? He has done and
mmiA munt reckless things to promote
his candidacy for the nomination. W
think th opinion will be widely held
that be Impute these "dreadful doc
trines" to Mr. Taft, not because Mr.
Taft has ever preached or held such doc
ii4hm hut because Mr. Roosevelt see
that In order to get tn nomination for
himself, hs must do great damage to tn
MmiiiAn of hla aucoeasor In the office.
But It will be objected tbat this method
