SQUARE DEAL .FOR SOUTH.
Few Southerners Hold Consular Posi
tions-Taft Expected to Re
A Washington dispatch .to the News
,and Courier says:
As the days of the Ta.t administra
tion draw nigh, Southern people hiere
and elseivhere are e.tertaining their
imaginations with hopes of better
t-hings for their homeland than have
come to it from the present oceupailit
of the executive office in the White
House. They 'have been persuaded to
expect -that -they will be acoorded a
slight-liy larger participation in 'the
responsibilities of ,the general govern
ment, and thereby reap a little more
of the benefits which come with such
responsibility. They are observing
that in this interesting resive-t 1r.
Taft will find vast room and rich op
portunity for improvement upon his
R-epublican predecessors, especially
The Southern people, exclusive of
the little groups of office-holders, Fed
Ceral referes and their expectant
henhmen, 'have given seant at-tention
'to the hire of Federal patronage, and
have only spoken ou.t on the subject~
when they thought best to protest,
against the appointmen't of bad and
inompetent men to t.ransaet ethe Fed
eral business. Objections 'have been
rged only when such appointments
were nfotoio'usly in the face of pre
vailing publie sentiment. and detri
mental -to the public welfare of the
community. Souithern people 'h:ve not
worried Mr. Roosevelt with importun
ities for any of the n'umerous prizes
and honors within 'his giftt, nor is
there th? slig~htest evidence that they
'will bothe-:- Mr. Taft about Federal
Th South ShrdOut.
Doing little for thre South save to
give offence in tire characeter of the
patronage which 'he 'has dispensed in
the States, there is one branch of the
Federal service which is presumed to
be condueted 'w'ithouat regard to party
advantage, and for the good of the
country at .large, in which P:residen.t
Roosevelt has ignored the Sou-th. That'
'is the patronage under the State de
partment, wijt:h its diplomatic and
consular service. Early in Mir. Roose
velt 's adlminist.ration, when he was
reminded of the meagre share the
Soth had in -the representation of the
United States abroad in the diploma
tic and consular services. 'he declared
'that 'he would -look into the questionI
'and see that the South had fair play.
He 'has done nothing of the 'kind. He
has takeni awary muceh of 'the little
that the South !had. The few small
posts 'held 'by men 'from Southern
Stes 'were obtained by them either
'through original 'appointment by
President Cleveland or thrtough ex
aminations prescribed in 'the State
department 's own civil service regu
'lations. When congriess. at Mr.
Roosevelt 's instance, enar-ted a laiw
classifying -the consular service and
embracing ithose already in office un
der i.s protection, Mir. Roosevelt had
filled nearly every desiraible place
'wih persons of 'his owvn choice and
party. As it is, the Sort'h 'has l:ess
representation in the State depart
mnent, at home and abroad, than it has
had at any time in the 'history of the
governmen't. Lineoln, Grant, Hayes,
Gafield, Arthur, McKiney-all
'did far better by the South than has
President Roosevelt. Wilth frequent
and excellent and attractive oppor
tunities 'to keep 'hi's word 'and win t'he
good wil:1l of 'the Southern people, he
h:a almost entirely ignored them. ex
ept 'when 'he namred Luke E. Wrigrht
'as ambassador .to Japan. Thai~t post
h;s 'been filled by a' Northern man.
The South now ha's -as little propor
tionate share i.n 'the -relations of this
government 'with forelign countries as
have our dusky wards on the Indian

WAS IT INSURE
Everybody asks this question after
a fire. The next question, which
is just as important :
nobody asks. The property owners of America
pay annually three hundred million dollars in
premiums for FIRE INSURANCE, but not
one in ten of them know even the NAME of
the Company whose policy may be his only
asset in case of disaster.
Do YOU Know?
If not, what an astonishing state of affairs for an
enlightened businesslike American citizen.
If you know the NAME of the Company,
what do you know ot its standing or its
reputation for Fair Dealings?
V I R E INSURANCE COMPANY
for ninety-nine years has paid promptly every
just claim, so that today it does the lai gest fire
