Taft His Own Man.
Tin- Baltimore Sun milieu this comment. ;
"The speech of Juilge Taft. the Secre- |
tary of War. at the banquet of the Mer
chants' Association in Boston on Monday
made it plain that if the
l>e elected President of the I nited Mates
we are tto have at least four years more
of Roosievelt policies. Secretary Pul
himself squarely and fairly on the Roose
velt platform -and urged tho continuance
of the policy of the present administra
It is hardly correct to say that in his
Boston speech "'Secretary Taft put him
self fairly and squarely on the Roosevelt
platform." He was already on that plat
form. He belonged there. He had helped
construct it. Where els? could he ha\e
been? If he had shuffled or qualified, or
had taken open ground against the ad
ministration, his cake, not only as a
presidential aspirant, but as a member of
the cabinet, wouki from that moment have
been dough. How could he longer have
retained the portfolio of the^AVar Depart
ment? All he did in Boston was to sup
port and explain policies to which lie was
already committed. The speech was a
model of clear statement and courage.
Equally incorrect is it to say that with
Judge Taft in the White House we should
simply have four years more of Theodore
Roosevelt by deputy. Mr. Roosevelt's
policies are pretty well defined, and the
present Congress should give them all the
additional legislative touches they need.
That will take them out of the way. It
will be a question then only of executing
the law: and of course Judge Taft as
President would attend to that.
But the new days will bring: new issUes.
and new duties toward some of the old
issues. The Philippine question will re
main. Would the advice of any other
man from the White House carry the
weight with Congress and the country
that Judge Taft's would? Does any other
man in our public affairs understand the
question in its practical aspects as thor
oughly? The canal matter will go on,
requiring presidential recommendation
from time to time, and Judge Taft, from
personal inspection of the work, is well
qualified for that. Cuba i? still on our
hands, and may remain so for some Utile
time to come. Judge Taft is familiar with
that situation, and has the confidence of
the Cuban people.
in all domestic matters Judge Taft is
well versad, and his grasp is that of a
well trained lawyer and his temperament
that of^a judge. He is familiar with the
Constitution, and by next year his expe
rience. in executive offlc^ in the Philip
pines and here at home, will have covered
full ten ^ears. Such a man in the White
House al mere deputy? Not by any
means! PJe would be loyal to his party
and Its history, but at the same time an
individual fn his own right, and equal to
whatever nrJight arise. Let us give Judge
Taft and alR his rivals a square deal.

Crowing out of the failure of the Morse
Helnse chain of banking institutions of
New York last autumn comes the Indict
ment of F. Augustus Heinze for falsely
certifying fifteen checks on the liank of
which he was president, drawn by his
brother's brokerage firm, aggregating
nearly *470,000. Mr. Heinze'g attorney de
clares that it Is all a "mistake in book
keeping," and that his client will be able
to clear himself of the charges. Others,
however, declare that the bookkeeping
was perfect and that the checks were cer
tified when they stood for no balances in
If the accusation is well grounded start
ling disclosures regarding the methods
of this already discredited group of
banker speculators may be expected. In
ilred. it is already rumored that other
indictments and arrests will follow. In
the trial of such cases of course, the tes
timony i* Chiefly of a technical nature,
confusing to the layman and difllcult for
even a concentrated, sincerely earnest
juryman to understand. But it calls for
no acute expert familiarity with the meth
ods of banking to enable the average citi
zen to understand that there has been a
great deal of "wild-catting" in the course
of latter-day banking and that the finan
cial stress of the past few months has
, been due in large measure to these
It is generally understood that tlie law
against bank officials borrowing money
from their own institutions is repeatedly
violated, or at the least evaded by flimsy
subterfuges. Dummy borrowers, standing
for bank officials and directors, have been
detected again and again. Heavy loans
have been made to clerks whose in
comes have been insufficient to pay a
tithe of the interest. Bank examiners
have often found such loans, apparently
secured, but actually without the least
backing. Just 1iow often the institutions
in which such practices have been de
tected have been called formally to ac
count is at this time unknown. Bank ex
aminers are loath to precipitate the clos
ing of doors.
It is generally hoped that the troubles
caused by the Morse-Heinze bank failures
will redound to the benefit of the commer
cial interests of the country by pointing
the way to cures for the serious evils
now menacing the financial institutions.
Whether F*. Augustus Heinze over-certi
fied his brother's checks fraudulently or
not. it is time for the courts to ascertain
precisely how (he affairs of that remark
able chain >>f banks were managed, in or- j
der that whatever new legislation may be
devised to insure the efficiency of the ex
isting laws against Hanking frauds may be
properly drawn and effectively enforced.
Clevelandism and Bryanism.
If Mr. Bryan's definition is in order. It
may be said that the aristocratic wing of
the democratic party celebrated Jackson
day In New York, and the democratic
wing in Chicago. In the one city Morgan
J. O'Brien, a Cleveland man and compli
mented by Mr. Cleveland in a letter which
was read, was the guest of honor, anc
in the other William J. Bryan. Mr.
O'Brien delivered a sort of lecture, fum
ing from the present and looking toward
"the days that are no more." Mr. Bryan
delivered a speech, dealing with the pres
ent and pointing to the future. The two
deliverances in spirit and suggestion are
as far apart as the poles. And yet it is
conceded that unless the two wings of
the party can be made "to (lap together"
success next November is impossible. Can
anybody do the sum?
We all know that the Cleveland wing
of the democracy objects to what is callec'
Bryanism. But that term is general. Now
that another presidential contest approach
9S. with Mr. Bryan the leading figure on the
democratic side of the fence, let us have
particulars. Just what issues for which
Mr. Bryan now stands would the Cleve
land men reject? Just what issues do
they think the democratic platform should
contain? Mr. Cleveland's generalities are
not illuminating. Neither are those of his
disciple. Judge O'Brien. "We won when
our platform was sane and safe. We
have lost since." Does this mean that
the platform of 1892 should be re-adopted?
Mr. / Bryan supported that platform.
Would he be willing to accept it now?
Probably not. It is his contention that
the democracy has made progress?at
least has moved?since then.
Judge O'Brien must have caused a smile
when, in taking a fling at Mr. Bryan, he
quoted Mr. Tilden as saying that "neither
the democratic party nor the republic, for
whose future that party is the best guar
antee, is now or ever can be' dependent
upon one man for their successful prog
ress in the path of a noble-destiny."
The democratic party has been a one
man party for nearly twelve years. Mr.
Bryan stepped aside for a few months in
1!M>4 to let Judge Parker try his 'prentice
hand at leadership, but then resumed his
old place and is still tilling it. But how
stands the record as between 1884 and
IStHi?just twelve years? Who dominated
the party completely during all that time?
Who was twice honored by the party, and
yet wrecked the party?
TJis one-man business is pretty bad. and
the democracy has had abundant proof
of the fact, but surely the Cleveland men,
unless in a spirit of confession and con
trition, are the last men who should be
descanting on the subject. Clevelandism
was as rampant for twelve years as
Bryanism has since been.
Mr. Gaines' proposition that the national
government contribute, annually to the
support of the Hermitage, the old home
and burial place of Andrew Jackson, will
find many indorsers. It will appeal to
the national appreciation of a great na
tional character. Lowell spoke of Mr.
Lincoln as "the first American." in recog
nition of the broad scope of the latter's
genius as applied to our institutions, and
his truly democratic origin, training, life,
and sympathies. Gen. Jackson came be
fore Mr. Lincoln, and was of the same
type?a plain man of the people, who
loved the country and served it in the
highest place with his whole heart. He
is one of the most attractive figures in
our history, whether considered as citizen,
soldier, or statesman* His grave, appro
priately, is a shrine, and should be an
object of national care.

Men of Deeds.
-A naval officer hap just whose i
chief claim to distinction la"y in the fact!
that he was in command of the expedition
of the great dry dock Dewey in its voyage
to Man'la from the Chesapeake bay. A
moj?t miromantic assignment, that, the
towing of a la*-ge box across the seas. It
would hardly appeal to the imagination
at first suggestion. Yet it was one of
the most difficult and responsible' duties
ever assigned to a naval officer, and Com
mander Hoslev's execution of his trust
was of a character to win him high praise.
The dry dock was delivered in good con
dition at the other end of the voyage, and
thus were refuted the gloomy predictions
of many p ophets. who averred that the
enor.nous box could not live in the heavy
Commander Hosley demonstrated that
I !je knew how to cope with emergencies,

smoothly, perhaps the next day slacken

j lie he would pursue the dry dock over
, many miles of tumultuous oceaq when it
got adrift before he recaptured it. But he
kept at his task, faithfully, skillfully and
j finally successfully. That Is what tells,
j after all.
It is not %o much how Important or
heroic an achievement may be that fleter
minef the worth of the participant. It is
a Question of whether the man has done
his work well. At the outbreak of the
Spanish-American war an army officer
achieved national fame by "carrying a
messipe fo Garcia." It was a dangerous
assignment, difficult and delicate. But
that man did his work thoroughly. He
performed his mission, without ba!king at
the obstacles to be overcome. The coun
try ra.ig with his praise.*. Who today will
remember his name, upon first asking?
Lest we forget him entirely, let it be here
noted that that man was Andrew S. Row
an. lieutenant in the United States Army.
How many will remember Hosley as the
man who towed the dry dock to Manila?
His was a less brilliant performance than
Rowan's, In that he did not have to face
human enemies, but he outwitted a
subtler, more powerful, more treacherous
foe. the sea. and he "delivered his goods."
There is 110 need to compare these two
performances. There is no occasion to
suggest that they were in any marked
degree exceptional, in that the men
who performed them were rare of their
kind. The army and the navy is filled
with men of that caliber, men who know
how to do their work thoroughly and
