Govenior Whitman's brand of econ

rejected by thc statesmen whoMi np
provul Is essential to Its adoption.
They hnve examined It with scrupu
lous euro nnd Impartiality, and have
reluctantly condemned it ns inappro
priate to the needs of the public.
In Its place they propose n reform
of their own by which $20,000,000
would be saved In tho expenditures
to be authorized by tho Legislature
tills year. This saving will bo ef
fected by tho slmplo device of chang
ing tho opening of tho fiscal year
1017-18 from October 1 to July 1, thus
reducing tho period to nine months,
and abolishing n number of Jobs held
by Democrats and therefore obviously
useless. The simplicity of attaining
economies by altering tho fiscal jenr
appeals; why not cut It down to six
months, and thus save half tho cost of
government? Nor should we overlook
the gain to the taxpayers derivable
from abandoning the Democratic "In
dustrial Colony for Tramps," and or
ganizing, sny, the Republican "Voca
tional Itetreat for Vagrants."
i How deep Is Governor Whitman's
i attachment to financial reform, n seri
ous and entertaining subject, we have
no menns of knowing. The feeling of
the legislators toward It is notorious,

of and n falling away from thc true
democrat le Ideal. He would agree
with Mr. Hoot that the basic prin
ciple of our republic Is "that nit men
are created with Inalienable rights
which governments nre created to
preserve." Mr. Adam would not put
the State above tho Individual In tho
-ense that bo Is the pawn of tllL. ,
State to be moved about as It wills;
but, on the other hand, he would not
hnve the Individual set his personal j
Interests above the welfare and

He reluctantly formed this opinion;
"The real tyranny against which my

Therefore Mr. Apims concluded

All Things to All Men, He Is
Human Heat and Worst.
To tub BoiTon of The Hun Nlr: Mr.
ItooBovelt is tho most spectacular fltture
this generation has seen. Ho revels and
goes Into Interminable rhapsodies over
popular applauxe and consideration. Of
tremendous mental and physical activ
ity, ho Is Irrepressible, audacious, fear
less, optimistic. Ho Ukes defeat with
philosophical realirnatlon and slKnnl trl-
umphs without superfluous boosting. He
Is Kencroua to a fou and loyal to a ,
triiMid. Like tho great Napoleon, ho Is
never tooproud to recognize a poor friend. 1
With all that, ho curries himself with i
a dlRnlty that Is actually Infatuating .
and again ho Indulges In side steps,
when his higher and nobler self seems
to bo Hmrled.
People Uko a man who will roll up 1
his sleeves and get to work, use strong
language nnd coin a few unusual
phrases. If 1 loose velt did not have a
good education, a tittle Dutch common
tense and nn Idea of responsibility he
would make a first claws socialistic
ranter. Nobody knows what he Is going
to do or say next. When people think
he Is dead nnd completely forgotten he
reappears with a cheerful nnd capti
vating smile. With nit his ceaseless ac
tivity ho knows enough to rest, or he
would have fallen to pieces long ago.
When he Is attacked he can strlko back
at his adversary with telling effect.
He Is not a mero demagogue clamor
ing for tho destruction of everything ex
cept what appeals to his fertllo brain.
He In no". io conauiiw-d with seltlness
and presumption as to Imagine that all
the political wisdom of the ages Is locked
up In himself. He knows more than
most Americans of to-day of the prob
lems that aro clamoring for solution
because he has made them his life I
study. All his public life ho has heen h
cloeo anil conscientious student of
humn affairs. Oil Bn.V miestli

Hooseveit when uenotinclng wrong
and defending rirht has used strong and
emphatic language because the occasion
required It. When a dlea. enters so
ciety and threatens tho disintegration
of tho state tho most strenuous and
drastic measures muit be uel for Us
eradication. There s too much fate
and dangerous optimism going In this
country now. There are ronie who think
that no matter what happens things
will bo oil right In the end
Some think that If he w.-re President
now w. should be plunged Into war.
If he wore President the country would
be Just as safe as It la now and the n.i
tlon's honor would not suffer, He is
not a man who says things Just to hear
himself talk. The peoplo trusted him
before and they can trust him again.
Tho coming rresldentl.il election will
b" an exciting one and few can nronhesy
b" an exciting one and few can prophesy
the re-suit. I bono for the good of the
country tint Hooseveit, with nil his
faults, will be returned to the White
House. (lran questions will nrlsn de

the one man with his experience, knowl
edge, ability, ht.itenianhlp and p.trlot

bring glory and honor to the country.
