The worktngmen of thla country
need no reassurance of President
Taft't friendihlp for them. They
were given assurance of that by
Pretident Rooterelt In the antumn
or 1908, when inaptred nttempu
were being made to prejudice the la
boring claaees against Mr. Taft
President Roosevelt, la a latter to a
labor leader, at that time wrote:
If titer It one body of man more than
another whoaa support I feel I have a
riant ta challenge oa a half of Secretary
Taft It It tha body of was worker of
the country. A atauncher friend, a fairer
aad truer repraaaatttlve. they cannot find
within the border of the United Btataa.
if will do everything In hit power for
them except to de that which la wrong;
ha w)l do wronc for ao man, and there
fore caa be truatod by all man.
Labor baa found President Taft
fulfilling these promisee. Aad no
pretident haa ever beea mora criti
cally watched by labor than Mr. Taft,
But here la a specific Instance of his
voluntary concern for tha working-
man and hit family: After the act
to compensate, workmen Injured or
killed vu paased a number of gov
ernment omplejee lost their Uvea
and, their famlliee being Ignorant of
tha pro rial one of the law, failed to
make proper application for relief
within the specified time.- When,
therefore, the claims came up to the
secretary of commerce and labor he
had to reject them for want of legal
formality. ' But tha matter somehow
reached the president's ears and he
took It np pereoaally. , Ha sent for
all the data la tha caaea, went over
them thoroughly aad then prepared
aad sent to congress a special mes
sage which resulted In giving to these
poor widows and. orphans tha aasltt
tnce to which they were entitled
under thla act aad out of which they
were about to bo cheated, by their
own lack of familiarity with tha tech
nical requirements of the law, .
Labor undoubtedly knows bow that
there never waa aay foundation for
tha attache upon the president under
pretexts that ha waa ita enemy.

Th central quest ,en at Usua ia the

Is a departure from the unbroken tradi

before adopting It.
Th president ef the United State baa

only by revolution. With prevlaloa of
uch possibilities it wa early aettled by
practice that th peopi would re-elect
tor on term only, thus limiting th
presidency of a single man to a period
of elgkt yean. Thla waa what the late
pretidaat ao aptly designated la bla
statement of UOi at "th wist custom

Now v ere told that ao long aa tha

In the flrat else thr caa be no doubt
that aa soon aa the custom of two terms

expect and will k a third term. Thlt
It what happened ta te a second term.
Evry one-term pretident, perhaps with
th exception of Pretident Haye. haa da-
aired a second term, and baa beta greatly
disappointed ia falling to get It. Exactly
th tame will be the eat tt to a third
term. Wt may txptct than at one a
new aerial of political oomblnatlon look
ing to that end, with a poaalble alterna
tion ot the tueceaaloB to that there will
be only two different presidents in a
twanty-four-year period. Thlt la no mere
fanciful conjecture. Knowing human na
ture and politic a w do, aad being
guide by the Ught ef the past, wt can
aspect nothing alt.
But thi I not all. Wba eaoe the
two-teravenly tradition baa disappeared
we may next xpet that th Intervening
of aa Intercalary term win soon be
flouted a a mr eupcretltlon, and will
not long endur. A president use hit
power te teeute a second cohaeeutlve
term; why not to seeur a third consecu

not a third eontatutiva terror Tha third
term principle once settled, we may be
