F— 1 if'eq.uaMy W1I I waited till this week to write this fearing that' perhaps some body might send it to President Roosevelt before he'd be out of office had I written it sooner, then I'd be up for "lese majeste." Well, it happens that this will not ba in circulation till after the president 'has shaken the dust of the White House off his feet. All thruthis letter in speaking of the president I mean Mr. Roosevelt. All the big no bodies in Washington, who could not bear the search light to be cast upon them, will breathe freer now that Teddy the Terrible is passing away. Rposeveit is dead in Washington. According to the politicians he is as dead as a door nail—whatever that may mean. He is also cordi ally hated by some. But is he hated by the country at large? I be lieve he is more universally loved now by the common people than ever. He has made mistakes—many of them—but who has not? Any man that will try to do great things will make mistakes. Bat it is better to make some mistakes and accomplish some things,than to make no mistakes and accomplish nothing. The first time-1 met Mr. Roosevelt was in Yankton, S. Oct. 17 1900. I was conducting a mission there at the time. He came to stump for McKinley. He was McKinley's running1 mate. I dismissed the mission early that night so that those who wished might go and see and hear the man with boots and spurs, and sombrero, and teeth and all. He was looked upon by some as a sort of curiosity who had escaped from his cage. I met him afterwards in Kansas City, Wash ington, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Newport, and my home city, Providence, R. I. I rode on the train with him and chatted pleasantly a few times, and one occasion transacted some business with him Each time I met him my admiration of the man increased. A good many think that the president was never sincere and that he was constantly playing to the gallery. I admit that he has been spec tacular—bombastic and superlative if you will. I admit that he is a queer makeup. Hp is an odd character—a law unto himself. Bnt I am candid to say that I think he is one of the most sincere men in the world. He feels himself called upon as-a special instrument of the Supreme Ruler to regulate all things in the universe, from the length ofa feather in a lady's hat to the magnitude of the Panama canal. He is an irresistible, intrepid,irrepressible, intractbale irri table, interrogation point He wants to know eve lything He will ksk the farmer what is the best way to raise a certain kmc! Of hogs. He will ask the preacher what is the best way to secure the salvation of another kind of hogs He will ask the powerful trust magnates how much money it takes to supply certain other kinds of hogs. Then he will ask the Supreme Court how to repress all hogs. He knows the price of eggs in one moment, and the price of steel the next. He is as familiar with lim berger cheese and pretzels as he is with the latest mining activities and irrigation. He will ask an engineer how to run a locomotive a farmer how- to run a gang plow, a woman how to run a sewing machine a nigger deacon how to run a camp meeting and he is de-e-lighted with every explanation. at home in the C0!^Z3rt3' ?T rai^r°a^DS, At a ftidment when the country least expects it Roosevelt will bob up severely with his big stick to again frighten into hysterics the evil doers. The politicians hated him from the beginning. They tried to prevent his election to the governorship of New York, but in spite of °nj w?s wifr Thfn tS ar)d ug to,tr®ye1' Read ™E "LIVE NEWS mm Witts t&ounq flfteft t&L (BY FATHER TWOHlJI/ll! E tr I. TEMPORARY TRANSITION OF TEDDY THE TERRIBLE swept in by the great wave of popularity carried him above everything after the Spanish war. Then they were determined to bury him forever in the vice presidency,. Much against his will they forced him to accept the nom ination. Then, how oddly McKinley was shot, and when he died Roosevelt was given an opportunity to use the big stick on the big rascals. And did he use it? Well, let those who came under its weight for the past seven and a half years testify to the many knocks and bumps fhpmS°rVhP0- fy received" He was Jbft-Wtry wm so overrun with rascals in high and low places that it took a man of his courage and energy and fearlessness and nerve, and brass, if you will, to beat them into submission. What did ^Tildens, the Alisons, the Cannons, the Aldriches, the Platte,, the Tawneys, the Bacons, the Forakers and all 'the other long list of ehgibles for the Ananiasclub? Nothintr It was *7™ to Tedd, the Terrible. He fought them risKd wT And did he like this business of fighting? Whv hp pninworf menaely. He'd rather light the howe ,„d »e senate Mm Ska moil to the country—and that's saying a good deal. The president got all the fun out of these controversies that anybody could expect a man v*0 WE6KLy" drawing room, in the executive office in the field, in the waters, in the mountains, at the football game at the lunch .cpunter, at a political pow-wow, or at the Reformed church We can easily see why the president should join the Reformed church He has reform in his blood and in the marrow of his bones. If there is rny reforming to be done whether in politics,or business, or hunting ?u or steamboating, or rearing babies or the church lie wants to take a hand. And why should he be refused right to take'a hand in any kind of a reform? He helped to reform Bau Masterson, who has twenty notches on his rifle handle, and he is as much at home in the Reformed church as he is with Bat Masterson. .But all the above to show the versatility of the man. You notice the first word of my heading is "Temporary." When I speak of the passing of Roosevelt I do not mean that he will pass away for good. That is What the politicians would dearly like and they will mov» heaven and earth to bring that about. But Teddy the Terrible is the shrewdest _a^d wisest and most long headed politician of them all. Right the „hey dey of his tremendous popularity with the people he has horse sense enough to retire. Tho apparently politically dead, he is very much alive and his ideas will live for many years to come. He will be a youthful old man for a quarter of a century to come. His wonderful energy may not be impaired and his judgment will be broad ened and mellowed by larger experience. indeed Teddy the Terrible for 0F TH* ,?r Haberman- Z- 9.000 miles to jump into a scrap, with African hops, and shoot holes thru elephants and things. He never al lowed such troubles to get on his nerves altho he took them seriously and pnee he started a fight he carried it thru to the bitter ena. During those fights he has been like a boy who did not care whether school kent or not. For him the more strenuous the tussle the better liked it. He always took a keen delight in confounding his enemies when ever the latter undertook to rebuke him. He had extraordinary luck in putting his hand on especially valuable letters al' the way along the line from "My Dear Maria up to pious Rockefeller, Efman and company Anddidnt'the use thern all to good effect!
