TACTFULNESS OF TRUE COURAGE
One characteristic which endears Theodore
Roosevelt to the people of this country is his ab
solute fearlessness. He is never controlled by
what is the easy thing to say, and never avoids
the difficult and the dangerous. He speaks the
same everywhere and does the same every
where. Fresh from a seven years' catch-as-catch-can
tussel here at home, he did not retire to dignified
ease, but tackled the most strenuous and hazard
ous undertaking that appealed to him. Again
fresh from a year of conflict with the wild
beasts, the diseases and hardships of the jungle,
he undertook the social life of the European.

In Egypt he denounced the policy of oppo

ably a situation of etiquette full of danger
through possibilities of misunderstanding and
bitterness, and by his very frankness avoided
compromising his own dignity or that of his
holiness, the pope.

Special Washincton Correspondence. '
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 24. President
Taft has antagonized the amendment to the
railroad bill which would prevent a larger
charge for a short haul than a long haul.
The president has proclaimed that if this
amendment can be defeated, as well as the Cum
mins amendment providing that increases of
rates shall be approved by the interstate com
merce commission, he will gladly accept what
ever is left of the bill when it finally gets
through the senate.
Inasmuch as the pressure for the defeat of
these two important propositions comes from
the railroads themselves, the willingness of the
president to assume responsibility for these
railroad demands is little short of extraor
dinary. It can bo accounted for only upon the
belief that the president is so determined to
make the Aldrich fight his own that he is willing
to assume leadership in a bad cause rather than
permit the progressives to aid the democrats to
accomplish something for the good of the pub
lic. Is it fair for railroads to charge more for a
short haul than a long haul? That is the princi
pal question involved in the amendment opposed
by the president. The amendment would pre
vent the larger charge for the shorter haul.?
At present railway companies give lower rates
to cities on water than to cities inland which
can not get freight except over their lines and
are therefore at their mercy. This practice has
led to the greatest evil in the railroad business
discrimination against communities and local
ities. And it has iven the railroads virtual
control of water transportation by enabling
them to drive water transportation companies
out of business or to force them to sell out to
the railroads. The adoption of the amendment
would free the waterways from the blighting ef
fects of railroad control, and would force a re
adjustment of transportation conditions so bene
ficial to the whole country that it is doubtful if
any one thing which could be inserted in the
pending measure could effect more for the pub
lic interest. Yet this is the proposition Presi
dent Taft declares to be highly objectionable.
