Taft'i Courage and Conviction.
More and more at the political
campaign comes on. President Taft
it writing himself down in hiitory as
a mas of unflinching courage and
conviction. It la the fashion today
for candidates for office to trim their
tail of public tpeech to suit the
varying winds of impulsive senti
ment, bnt this the president stead
fastly, doggedly, refuses to do. Pos
sibly be might ss well, for his purely
political chances, leave some things
untald. but they being true and be
ing pertinent and germane, he aays
them and that without equivocation,
leaving no possible chance for mis
understanding hi position.
The president's Chamber of Com
merce speech st Philadelphia is s
notable example of thtt strong ele
ment la hit character. He refutes
to beat the torn torn of Idle agitation
merely for the purpose of catching
step with what others misconceive to
be the popular march. He refuses to
sppeal to prejudice, to Inflame pas
don, to reaort to stagecraft for the
mere plaudit of the crowd. And we
believe this very courage 1 going to
carry conviction to the hearts of the
people lu th end and that by the
time they are next called upon to
name president, they will have found
in ths msa now lu the White House
the very one they need snd deal re.
President Taft refuses to "butt la"

Woman in Journalism.
An eastern exchange says it is
likely thst there will be vigorous and
persistent protest against the action
of the advisory board of tbo newly
established school of Journsllsm of
Columbia university in excluding
women from its privileges and ad
vantages, and adds: "Apparently

Time was when woman seemed, or
wss regarded, as wholly unfitted for
the field of Journalism, especially for
the exacting demsnds of tbe daily
newspaper work, but that time it
psssed. Woman is in Journalism In
all its branches and phases and has
even taken her place on tbo staff of
the dally newspaper and filling It
very acceptably. She Is not to be
crowded out, for her advent ha cre
ated new fields which she must fill;
cultivated new tastes, which the

the professions, probably, kept pace
with changing times and conditions

course, to live, for It Is vitally de

It seems that to do the broadest
work and distribute privileges most
fairly, a school of Journalism might
well afford to admit women as well
as men. For Journalism cannot rid
Itself of women, therefor It should
do all it can to mak her aa effective
a worker as possible. There are
phase of newspaper work woman
probably never will do, but there are
o'jer phages she must continue to do.

President Jacob Gould Schurman of Cor

presidential nomination in th New York
In accordance with the general custom
of the republican party, to say nothing
of th special ground of a meritorious
admlnstratlon. President Taft Is entitled
to renomination for a second term. There
are, however, some republicans who op
pose this just and natural consummation
and who are endeavoring to prevent It
by bringing about for a third term tb
nomination of ex-President Rooeevelt
To this startling alternative there are
objections of the greatest weight. The
people today are frankly discussing them
and the republican convention to assem

sider and appraise them. It I of tb

but also to th nation that a right deci
