SAYS PRESIDENT WILSON HAS
DONE NOTHING TO SHOW METTLE.
Ono-fourth of the administration of President Wil
son ends on March 4, and there has been for this
reason some disposition, not so much in political as
in financial and business circles, to look back over
the year so that the things which have been accom
plished may be recalled. First of all, it is notice
able that there is frequent discussion when men of
intelligence meet which centers upon the person
ality and intellectual, and temperamental qualities
of the President. There seems to be a considerable
difference of opinion.
Some of those who have lately been speaking in
words of high approval of the President are Re
publicans. Condensed into a line, their approval
is based upon their belief that "he has accom
plished something." On the other hand, there are
some men who are 'of Democrat association who
venture, informally, to criticize the President be
cause they think that he is in danger of assuming
prerogatives that belong to the legislative depart
ment of the Government. These are for the most
part men who are proud of saying that they are
still "State" Rights" Democrats and are of the
school of Jefferson, Jackson and Tilden.
The difference of opinion suggests to those who
have heard expressions, both favorable and critical,
that within his first year in the Presidency Wilson
has really done nothing which makes it possible
satisfactorily to analyze his temperamental and in
tellectual qualities. That was not true of Taft or
of Roosevelt. Not six months had passed after
President Taft was inaugurated before there was
a fairly good estimate both of his temperament and
of his intellect. It was an estimate which was jus
tified by the administration of President Taft and
it will probably pass into tradition as being the
correct understanding of him.
Roosevelt was never an enigma excepting that the
process of his mind, which in some respectH reflects
the real characteristics of genius, were never under
stood. But President Wilsou seems to be less
known, at least in this city, than he was before lie
entered upon the Presidency. There does remain
the fear that he may still look upon those who are
of great influence in the financial district with sus
picion, and he certainly has never made any effort
to meet any of these men face to face, although his
friends say that he esteems himself a swift and
intuitive reader of character.
Two or three men of great influence, especially in
international financing, have been in consultation
with him, notably James Speyer and Paul War
burg, of whom it has sometimes been said that the
President would be glad to appoint him a member
of'the Federal Reserve Hoard. If there be founda
tion for that statement it must be based upon the
President's recognition of the highly expert abili
ties of Mr. Warburg and of his great experiene"
both in the theory and the practice of banking.
