MR. TAFT'S INAUGURAL.
President Tnft In his Inaugural ad
dress confirmed the predictions that
ho will omlcaMir during his adminis
tration to patch up the wounds made
liy his predecessor.
This the President very naturally
avoids saying In any direct manner,
lint nil through his address runs the
suggestion of straightening out on
onsorvntlve lines tho reforms Inaug
urated by Itoosevelt. In only one In
xtnnco does Mr. Taft Indlcnto that he
might disagree with what Mr. ltooxu

The tone of the address appeals to

Jew vigor In ndnilnlatratlon than
Itoosevelt but exerted In n different
imuinor. So (ar as he can foresee

GOVERNMENT BY COMMISSION
The loial .uteinpt to malic "gov

such an Impnrtmit Journal as tho
Washington Star, published In'tlio
District of Columbia. The Star, of
course, litis no Interest In saddling
or not saddling tho commission gov
ernment on the back of the present
Territory of Ilnwnll, but tho Wash
ington paper so often quoted by our
commission government boost-
Uth has very positive
tho cry expensive cl
character of the
government of the District of Colum
bia notwithstanding the fact that
cue-half of the expense of the gov
ernment of tho District Is homo by
the l'ederal (lovcrnmcnt.

Washington's position In this respect
Is us clearly dellucd us in any other
brunch of the inquiry, stimulated by
the proposal contained In tho Scott
bill to raise the locnl realty assess

"THE AVEIIAQE WASHINGTON

by the AVEIlAflE resident of any of

called the Wnshlngton groiifi of tit

numbers 11 to 20, Inclusive.

"This table shows that Washington
Is assessed, per capita, at a higher
figure than any other city of tho
group. THE TAXED HALF of the
District stands for an assessment of
$852.70 for each man, woman, and
child within tho capital aiea. This
Is $189.03 more 'than Cincinnati,
$0.32 more than Detroit, $241.50
more than Milwaukee, $301.42 moto

Itself, which Is the Dual result of tho
