"Under such circumstances you
would lie the best possible leader,
and with your leadership we - eould
rest assured that only good method
would prevail. In such a contest
you could do very much if you wore
on the bench; you could do very
much if you were in active political
life outside. I think you could do
most as president, but you could do
very much as cbeif justice, and you
could do less, but still very much,
as associate justice. Where you can
fight best 1 cannot say, for you
know what your soul returns to let
ter than I can.
"As I see the situation, it is this:
There arc strong arguments against
your taking this justiceship. In the
first place my belief is that of all the.
men who have apicared so far you
ire the man whit is most likely to
receive the republican nomination,
and who is, I think, the 1cst man
to receive it. It is not a light thing
to cast aside the chance of the pre
sidency, even though, of course, it
is a chance, however, a good one.
It would be a very foolish thing
'or you to get it into your thought,
so that your sweet and fine nature
would be warped and you would U'-
comc bitter ami sour, as Henry Clay
became; and, thank heaven, this is
imiMissible. Rut it is well to re
member that the shadow of the pre
sidency falls on no man twice, save
in most exceptional circumstances.
HARD CHOICE TO MAKE.
Now, my dear Willr there is
the situation as I sic it. It is a
hard choice to make, and you your
self have to make it. You havt
two alternatives before you, each
wltlv uncertain possibilities, and
you cannot lc sure that whichever
you take you will not afterward
hink that it would lmvc Urn better
if you' had taken the other, Rut
whichever you take, I know that
you will render great anil durable
service to the nation for many years
to come, and I feel that you should
decide in accordance with the
promptings of your own liking, of
your own Ulief, as to where you
can render the service which most
appeals to you, as well as that which
you feel is most beneficial to tin
nation. None can with wisdom
advise you. Sincerely, yours,
Secretary Taft took a long time
to consider the matter, says the
magazine. At intervals there was
further discussion of it with Presi
lent Roosevelt, and occasionally the
subject was mentioned in thecoma
pondciice that went on continually
between the two men. Finally Mr
SECRETARY TAFT 'S REPLY.
Point nu Prince, Province of Que
Ur, Canada, July SO, 1!K)I5
My Dear Mr. President: You
have been good enough to offer to
appoint me to the Supreme bench,
to succeed Justice Rrown, and I
have not hesitated to express to you
a numU'r of times the pleasure I
would have in accepting the ap
pointment, if I could do so. The
duel reason tor my hesitation was
the condition of matters in the War
Department, including the Philip
pine and Panama canal bureaus
With respect to the Panama matter
I have no doubt that Mr. Root, t
whom you proposed to transfi
sujicrvision of the canal commission
would do the work U tter than
have done it, or could do it. Of
course, we will still U- the subject
of attack for what has Urn done
anil I could, perhaps, meet the at
tack Utter than any one, because
of my familiarity with what has
Urn done; but that consideration
would not be great enough to n
quire me to sacrifice my ambition
to go on the U'lieh, or to risk the
chance for doing so.
ESIREST( HELP FILIPINOS.
"I have been connected with the
administration of civil government
in the Philippine Islands since
February, 1!XK). Much of what
has Urn done in working out the
problem and carrying the burden
thrust Uoii the United States I am
more or less responsible for. Right-
y or wrongly, the jx'ople uf the is
lands, and especially those who have
M'cn most anxious to make ourgov-
rnment a success there, have con
fidence in my earnest desire to help
the Filipino people and my willing
ness to do everything I can to secure
them prosperity, peace and a gra-
lual extension of self-government.

WOULD PREFER THE PENCIL
"1 know that few, if any, even
iniong my friends, will credit . me
with anything but a desire, uncon
scious jicrhaps, to run for the prc-
idency, and that I must face and
icilr this misconstruction of what I
o. Rut I am' confident you credit
my reasons as I give them to you
und will U'licvc me when I say that
would much perfer to go on the
Supreme bench for life than to run
r the Presidency, and that in
twenty years of judicial service I
uld make myself more useful to
the country than as President, even
if my election should comc aUnit.

two years is short to do much. ' Yet

does the Doctor prescribe PRIMO REER to restore the vital
ity of the patient, instead of Malt Tonic?
Recause it is more easily assimulated by a weak digestive
system; often it is the only form of nourishment that t lie pa
tient can retain. "
Some people class beer as a spirituous Jiipior. PRIMO
REER contains only 2 J' of alcohol.
It is the Malt Parley and Hops that are a food and tonic
