PRESIDENT TAFT UNSIYIIRCHED
(New York lTcrald )
There is one prominent Republican who

prediction of Mr. Carrie Chapman Cott,
President of the International Woman's Suf
THE TABOO ON MODERATE DRINKING.
The use of alcohol is receiving some hard
knocks these days. A prominent railway
system, not content with the general rule
heretofore in force on railways forbidding
employes to drink while on duty, now forbids
employees to indulge at all in drinking out of
employment hours, or in any other conduct
which will impair their health or make them
loss alert and less capable while on duty. The
owner of one of the nation's pots a promin
ent baseball team announces that moderation
in drinking is not, sufficient : the pincers on his
team must leave alcohol entirely alone aud
abandon cigarettes. The justification for such
lulcs may be found not only in the difficulty
of being moderate in indulgence, but also in
the cumulative and after-effects of dissipation.
The world is moving; the old fetich of "per
sonal liberty'' at whatever-cost of danger to
the public at large seems to be losing its
power. The Journal of the American Medical
Association thinks that the time may come
when cveiy man to whom the life and safety
of others arc entrusted may be expected or
even required to be as abstemious as ball
players and railway employees.
TH&BESEMBLANCE TO LINCOLN.
iuThq close rosomblanco botwoon Colonel
Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln was not
noticed till tho Colonel discovered it along
with tho ton commandments. Then it was
recalled that he scolded General Milos in pub
lie, making a disgraceful sceno at the White
House, which was so much like tho thoughtful
and considerate Lincoln.
"Again, upon tho death of Senator Proctor
of Vermont, with whom Roosevelt had had
some differences, when ho was asked if he
was sorry he replied that he was sorry it was
not Senator Hale. This sounds very much
"In his book on 'The Hough Riders' he
boasts of shooting n -Spaniard in t h! back
How Lincoln would have gloated over so bravo
a deed. v
"On his trip down the Mississippi river with
the water way commission he had a pilot per
emptorily dismissed from service without a
hearing and for no cause whatever. Lincoln
always dismissed pilots in that way.
"Because a government cmployo passed his
carriage in an auto on the streets ot Washing
ton he amended the civil seivico rules so that
a department chief could dismiss a clerk with
out a hearing, aud forced this clerk's dismissal
under a rule that did not exist when tho act
was committed. Lincoln did something like
that almost every morning.
"When a schoolgirl on horseback passed his
riding party he struck her hoise and angry
blow with his riding whip, frightening tho
animal and almost throwing the girl to the
ground. Lincoln always had just such a loid-1 ! Jn ma nn

, MARK HANNA'S PREDICTION.
During the last month of hid life, January,
100-1, Senator Marcus A. lltuina wrote for the
National an article which presaged that in the
campaign of 1012 the lino of cleavage would
l)e sharply drawn on .socialism. With all the
earnest fervor of his latter clays, ''Uncle Mark"
llanua concentrated his attention upon tho
work of civic federation in bringing about a.
- bettor understanding between employers aud
tloir workmen. ' 'Future campaigus," he told
me, ''will find the workingmen of the country
educated in such a way that they cannot be
led astray from the fundamental principles of
our government." He then expressed tho
desire that he might live to seo n campaign in
which the issues were fail ly and scp:iarely
drawn. He insisted that dispito all the noisy
talk, the sober sense of tho Americau people
was always to be relied upon. Even during
the most Btreuuous times, when it seemed as if
there was no way to arbitrate aud settle die
putos-which had developed into embittered
- elasr feeling, Seuutor Hanua's clear eyes
would soften and twinkle as he rcmaiked,
"You ean bet ou tho American people every
timo, if you just lot them have all tho facts."
JIo foresaw the results of the multiplieition
gCautouiobiles and like displays of wealth aud
luxury, and could predict their ell'ect upon the
less successful. But he insisted that if there
.could only bo a piopcr reali.'ilion of the hap
piness and contented condition of tho men
of average moans, that stato would bo rccog-
, ni.cd ns, after all, the ideal condition in Amer
icau life. ''AlFaira at Washington," Joo
Mitchell Chappie, in National Magazine foi
ly giouch as that.
"The closest resemblance, however, wa
shown when Mr. Roosevelt, while President,
in an article published everywhere over hi
signature, charged corruption upo
Tyuoi, who was Postmaster (Jcnnral undo
Grant, but at this time was a suboulinato in
tho Postollice Department. At the President's
behest he was indicted in the District of Col
umbia. The trial dragged along two or three
weeks, and I frequently saw him, feeble and
more than SO years of ago, in an invalid chair
wheeling himself into the cotntroom. Hut he
was acquitted and as a free man went to his
home to dio.
"From his deathbed ho wrote a last appeal
to the President to withdraw what he had said
and let him die without a stain on his nimy
or a disgrace upon his family. But Roosevelt
let him die without an answer and the letter
is still unanswered. That is just like Lincoln,
of whom it might truthfully be stid lint ho
came to preach the gospel to tho poor and to
heal the broken hearted." J. Adam Bode.
