dent Urant his father, Alphonso Taft, held
the portfolio, as well as that of attorney
Governor Taft comes to the office after
years of office holding. He is a Cincinnati,
0., product, and a graduate of Yale, being
Hahitatorian of the class of '78. He was
born September 15, 1857.
| After graduating from Yale he took a
course in the Law School of Cincinnati,
tad was admitted to the Ohio bar in
1880. Almost at once he entered politics,
and successfully held city, county, state
and government positions.
His work as president of the Philippine
commission and later as civil governor of
the island* stamped him as one of the
strong men of the country. From chaos
he brought order. From Spanish bribery
and treachery he established decency and
good government. He built schools and
municipalities in the islands and estab
lished a government from the ground up.
His call to accept the portfolio as sec
retary of war was not unnatural. It was
the reward that followed such work. His
great legal ability will stand him in stead
in the trying work of the department,
and his knowledge of actual conditions in
the far east will be of incalculable value
to the department.
The man he succeeds, Elihu Root, is an
older man. He was born in what is now
Knox Hall of natural history on the cam
.pus of Hamilton college, Clinton, N. Y.
The hall was formerly the home of the
Root family, when the secretary s father
was professor of mathematics.
Elihu Root came into the world Febru
ary 15, 1845. He graduated from Hamilton
college in 1864 and later from the Univer
sity Law School of the city of New York.
He, too. baa held office for years. His
Hist appointment was as United States
district attorney of southern New York,
to which office he was appointed by l'res
idtnt Arthur in 1883. He remained until
1885. As delegate-at-large to the United
States constitutional convention, and
chairman of the judiciary convention in
1894 he made a name for himself.
His law practice in New York, when
called to accept a place in President Mc-
Kinley's cabinet, was estimated at $80,000
a year. He took up the work of secretary
when Alger resigned in 1899, and was re
appointed March 5, 1901. August 3, 1903,
he handed his resignation to President
Roosevelt, to take effect January 1, 1904.
Meanwhile he was appointed to the Alas
kan boundary commission, and did much
to advance the claims of this country.
During his term as secretary of war he
paused through the leavings of the em
balmed beef scandal, the General Miles
controversy and the water cure investiga
tions. He was roundly condemned by
many for his action the day Miles left
office, but later developments brought out
the fact that he acted upon President
Roosevelt's orders, and had he been al
lowed tv have his own way would have
tendered the Indian fighter an ovation as
the departing commander of the army.
