ROOSEVELT IS
GIVENJVJH
Thousands of People in San Fran
cisco Cheer His Every Ut
terance There
FOREMOST AMERICAN
SAYS THE GOVERNOR
Former President Talks About the
Judiciary and the Right of the
People to Solve Their Own
Affairs as They Please
SAN FRANCISCO, March 28.—Sur
rounded by a majority of the state's
legislators, Its chief executive and
many San Franciscans identified with
the insurgent cause and in the pres
ence of 15,000 cheering citizens Col
onel Rosevelt congratulated Califor
nia tonight on the progress she has
made in here "good fight" for clean
government. In his 30 years of public
life, Colonel Roosevelt declared, he
never had seen performed by any leg
islature so great an amount of good
le.islation as that secured by the
present legislature of California.
Enthusiasm Ia Wild
Enthusiasm is a mild word to char
acterize the ovation extended by San
Francisco to the former president.
His very telling utterances tonight
are greeted by storms of applause
and when Governor Johnson intro
duced him as the "foremost Ameri
can" and expr st 1 the wish that he
might be haile again as the pub
lic's leader the cheering was deafen
ing.
In felicitating the state upon the
work accomplished by the legislature,
Roosevelt especially commended the
legislature for not having pushed Its
program too far, the rock he said that
reformers generally split upon in
ererplaying their hand.
Mr. Roosevelt said in part:
Have Good Reformers
"I most heartily congratulate Cali
fornia on its vigorous new birth, in
the field of political and social life.
Moreover 1 wish also heartily to con
gratulate the governor and legislature
on the immense service they have ren
dered by what thiy have refrained
from doing. In any movament lor
advaece, it la as important and at
least as difficult to refrain from doing
the things that ought not to be done
as to de the things that ought to be
done.
"I particularly congratulate you
upon the fact that so far your reform
ers have been able to work reasonably
well together and to keep In such
shape that they do not lose touch with
the moderates.
Many Reformers Unfit
"Unfortunately there are plenty of
reformers with high ideals and lofty
aspirations who are so unfit for the
field of practical endeavor that they
spend their time lighting one another.
like microbes in a bottle; and I need
hardly say that this type of reform
er is foreordained through the agss
to be the victim of the machine poli
tician.
"In Los Angeles I spoke on the
question of the judiciary. I wish to
amplify a Uttle what I then said.
First and most important let me insist
on what ought to be the obvious fact
that no public servant should ever be
Judged by lumping him In with other
sublic servants who occupy similar
positions. Judge each public ser
vants by other public servants who
occupy similar positions. Judge each
public servant by his individual con
duct in his position, not by his po
sition. In return let the high minded
public servant be most carefully on
his guard never to combine with ths
less hlghminded public servants oc
cupying the same type of position.
Senate Is Instance
"I have no patience with the people
who attack all executive officers as
such, or all legislative officers «■«■■
such. Take, for instance, the senate
of the United States. Don't attack
the senators as a body, Discriminate,
for instance, sharpie between the
senator who acted in the Interest of
honesty, of public morality, in voting
against Lorimer, and the senator who
voted for Lorimer. This Is Important
as regards all our officials, but it if
perhaps especially important as re
gards the Judges. A tine Judiciary,
upright, honest, fearless, with sym
pathetic intelligence, is essential, to
the success of a free community. We
can get such a Judiciary only If, on
the one hand, the people demand
those qualities in the judges, and if.
on the other hand, the eiod Judges
resolutely decline to make common
cause with bad Judges.
Criticism of Judiciary
"I champion and practice the right
of criticism of the federal judiciary
for the very reason that It Is the only
alternative to adopting some other
method of bringing the federal Judi
ciary whenever necessary in closer
touch with the people.
"Personally I think that to elect a
Judge for a very short term without a
recall Is more destructive of the
Judge's Independence and usefulness
on the bench than to elect him for
a long term with a recall; and If peo
ple would only pay attention to facts
and not names, this would be uni
versally recognized.
Where Judges Failed
"A few years ago for instance, In
Missouri, the after time governor of
the state, then Attorney General Folk
conducted a series of prosecutions

HOME JOURNAL CHANGES PLAN

NEW YORK, March 28.—The La
dies' Home Journal has abandoned
its experiment with fortnightly Issues
and after the May 15 number ap
pears, the magazine will be publish

DIAZ TO STEP
DOWN AND OUT
He Is Allowed to "Save His Face"
in the Negotiations Which
Will Result in Peace
ACCORDED ALL HONORS
DUE TO HIS SERVICES
Taft Says He Could Not Permit
Americans to Re Threatened
With Danger on Threshold of
Their Country
SAN ANTONIO, March 28.—This
explanation of recent governmental
changes at Mexico City, the recall of
Limantour, the arrival of F. I. Mad- j
ero, Sr., and his son Guatvo, at San ,
Antonio and the recall home of De |
Laßarra all were explained today by .
Madero and his son. Tentative peace
proposals have been made and on the
administration side have been acted
upon. In the view of Don Francisco,
peace Is assured If not within ten j
days at most within a month.
Diaz Saves His Face
Diaz Is reported in a message to the
Mexican government, will Insist that
peace be concluded. Only on the sub
ject of why they were so sure peace
will be concluded within a set time
were father and son silent.
One point Limantour was firm
upon in his interview with Madero.
This was that Diaz should be allowed
to "save his face" by retiring from
the presidency with all honors due
his distinguished services. To this
Don Francisco agreed, subject how
ever, to the approval of his son, Fran
cisco, and other leaders. He did
not fear the adverse vote, however.
Diaz to Step Down
Diaz, according to program will re
main In office with his new and some
what unsatisfactory cabinet until the
country is at rest. When peace is re
stored the "Iron Man" will step dovve
and out, It Is believed. Limantour
or Laßarra will then become presi
dent until the new president can b«
chosen at an election In which suf
frage shall be unrestrained and free.
Taft Hears Good News
WASHINGTON, D. C, March 28.—
Advices received by the state depart
ment today and conveyed to Presi
dent Taft, gave a most hopeful view
of the American situation. It Is said
in diplomatic circles that resignation
of the old Diaz cabinet Is expected
to have a better effect than had been
generally predicted. To the senate
committee on foreign relations Presi
dent Taft today told his two-fold ob
ject In sending troops to Texas. These
were to enforce neutrality and be
prepared to defend American lives
and property. The president said that
the lives of Americans threatened at
the threshold of their own country he
could not Idly sit by and do nothing.
WHITE HOPE MORRIS
IS A POOR BATTLER
Knocks Out Mike Schreck After a
Slow Contest in Which He
Uses a Good Left
SAPULPA, Okla, March 28. —
Knocking out Mike Schreck, the
Cincinnati heavyweight. In six rounds
here today, Carl Morris, of this city,
kept himself In the running as "white
hope." That was about all he did,
however, for his showing was not
such as Is calculated to Indicate that
Champion Jack Johnson Is in immi
nent danger of losing his title to the
'ex-engineer of Sapulpa.
A right hook to jaw won for Mor
rls. Morris beat Schreck fairly!
enough, but he fight was slow. About
all Schreck did was to act as a
punching bag for Morris and await
the coming of the end. Schreck was
fat and slow. He took a bad beat
ing and was a bloody and pitiful
sight when the final count came. One
thing Morris did In this fight was to
prove that he can battle with both
hands.
Today was the first time that he
used the left punch to any extent
Morris is slow. He has the punch It
is true, but It will take a large
amount of training to put him In the j
class with any of the leading fighters
tn the heavy weight division. Mor
rls says he knows his limitations and
Is going to train from now on for
speed.

COMMERCIAL CLUB MEN
TO CONSIDER QUESTION
Harriman People Have Made
Preparations for Exploiting the

I Hubert P. Cross, secretary of the
I United States Land and Irrigation ex
| position, is In North Yakima for the
l purpose of Interesting the Commer-
I clal club officers and others in the
; meeting of his organization at Chi
cago, which will be held November
18 to December 9, Inclusive. Mr.
I Cross will meet with the directors of
'the Commercial club at the club
'rooms this evening. He met \\i!h the
I Sunnyslde Commercial club officers
'yesterday, and they took t:ie matter
up last evening* Today he will make
a trip to EllenSburg for the purpose
! of laying the subject before the or
ganized business men of that city. His
object, of course, is to make arrange
j ments with these different bodies to
] the end that "The foregoing cities and
! the entire Yakima valley may be
| properly represented by comprehen
| Siva exhibits at the great exposition.
Land and Livestock
The National Irrigation congress
will be held in Chicago from Decem
ber 4 to 9, and the International
Livestock exposition will be held dur
ing the same period. It is expected
that 500,000 will attend these events
this fall. Thtf; tremendous advertis
ing possjbllltit-j, from a western stand
point, are readily apparent. About
300,000 attended the exposition la3t
year. North Yakima has already been
In the show for two years and this
will make the third.
Mr. Cross said: "My purpose on
this trip to the northwest la to visit
many communities which were with
us last year, such as the Yakima val
ley, Wenatchee, Medford and other
communities in Idaho, Washington
and Oregon. What particularly ap
peals to the people of North Yak
ima and other northwestern cities and
districts Is the splendid opportunity
the land show gives them to get into
close personal contact with the peo
ple of the middle west, who may be
regarded as prospective investors in
northwestern fruit land.
Harriman Reservations
"The Harriman Unas took $6000
worth of space last year and had
their own lecture room. The lectures
were given by Union Pacific and
Southern Pacific experts to 77,000
counted people. This Immense con
course of people listened eagerly from
day to day to the stories of the gold
en west. This feature was so success
ful that the Harriman lines have al
ready asked for a reservation of the
same space this year.
"The Northern Pacific Railroad
company assist the community ex
hibits from the northwest last year
by carrying the exhibits to Chicago
without charge and by otherwise
helping the community exhibitors.
President Elliott has promised the
cooperation of the railroad company
in obtaining representative exhibits
from the districts along that line.
It Is presumed that the company will
again carry the exhibits free this
year."
Mr. Cross is receiving letters and
telegrams dally making reservations
of space, and among the latter he got
two yesterday, one from Wenatchee
and another from Mississippi

for the right man, who will be made
