THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
Wo have read a great many press
comments, both home and foreign, on
President Roosevelt's message to con
gress. Few, if any, have commended
themselves' to us so strongly as those
of C. M. Jackson, editor of tho Stato
Journal. According to our Ideas ho
hits tho nail squarely on tho head.
For these reasons wo adopt his com
ments ns our own and reproduco them
"The custom for many years has been
for the papers adhering to tho party
in power to allude to tho message or
tho president ns 'masterly and states
manlike, ' while those or the opposi
tion have devoted their attention to
ward picking Haws in the document
and discussing as impractical and "
Inane sug;estIons offered to congress.
"The Journnl has endeavored to di
vest itself of party feeling In Its dis
cussion of the message this year, and i
review it with the dispassionate feel-
Ing that would govern a criticism of
the action of nn ordlnnry man.
"Barring the absurd spelling which
the executive Indulges in following
out his pet Ideas on improving tho
language, we sincerely believe this
message Is the strongest document Mr.
Roosevelt has written, and we think
that for directness or statement, clear
ness or enunciation, disclosure or Ideas
and excellence or suggestion It Is en
titled to rank with the messages of
the greatest men who -have sat In tho
"We commend the message In all Its
parts and urge every citizen of tho
state to read it carefully over. Es
pecially do wo suggest to tho mem-
berselcct of the legislature that they
peruse It, for embodied In the docu
ment will be found some ideas that
apply to state as well as. to national
governments. The president does not
indulge In much bounuet-throwing in
his introduction. A row lines or open
ing and ho plunges Into business by
suggesting that corporation campaign
contributions bo prohibited. A volume
or commendations might be written on
that topic alone, but we are forced to
pass' It by with only a brief allusion.
"Tho right of the government to ap
peal In criminal cases In matters ot
law is the next suggestion, and It Is
a good one. Why the United States
has permitted this fatal defoct In
legal practice to go uncorrected for
one hundred and thirty years is some
tiling or a matter ot wonder. As the
executive suggests, It will bo almost
Impossible to secure convictions of
great corporations charged with crime
unless this provision is made. The
president discusses this matter very
learnedly and succinctly nnd, ns It Is
not couched in tho lore of lawyers,
can bo readily understood.
"His remarks on tho subject or
lynching contain much food for
thought. Tho people or tho south will
do well to read and reflect, for the ad
vice tendered Is sago and sound.
'Lawlessness grows upon what It
reeds upon.' The president handles
tho topic without gloves nnd goes to
tho very bottom or tho question from
"Wo like his remarks upon tho sub
lect of capital and labor, and think ho
treats tho matter fairly, according to
both sides, the rights to which they I
ore entitled. We think tho legislative j
measures suggested by him will do I
much toward bringing about a better
understanding between the opposing ,
dements. Especially do wo commend 1$
his nttltudo on tho labor of women
nnd children, and direct the nttentlon
of the legislating to tho suggestions i
therein contnined, nnd urge our own
executive to ndopt them in his mes
sage to tho senate and house this
