Mngnzlno comment Is necessarily our most Btudled nnd carefully planned form of public expression. More over, since tho mnnuzlnca frankly admit they cannpt champion! many unpopular causes, that thoy must reflect popular nonttment In ft largo degrco In order to hold their readers, tho consensus of magazlno opinion on a matter as universally vital oa our Admin istration has a very considerable signifi cance. There havo been numerous recent issues to stir up editorial comment, among others the agitation ovor national dofonse, the President's message to Congress, recurring ripples of the Mexican situation and tho sig nificance ot tho recent eloclionn. In the following list, covering most of the maga zines that print controversial articles, 10 magazines Indorse the President and his Ad ministration, flvo critlclne adversely, two are neutral and 10 nre completely silent. Most of tho magazines generally accepted an representing tho most conservative cle ment which 1b opposed to the tendencies of the Administration nre in tho class which havo nothing to say. The more popular, or less conservative, are In the predominant In tho class Indorsing the Administration. The leading writers In this class call tho Presi dent an Idealist and point out that Idealism Is difficult to attack because of Its' very evanescence. Perhaps this accounts In part for the silence of tho less enthusiastic. oit wmt Atlantic Monthly, Cosmopolitan, SILFoutn: Harpers Monthlyf 'McClure's. Mun sey. BcrlbnoF's, Survey. World's Work.

(NOTE The Decomber numbers of the maga- zlnes were uBed In compiling this list and In tho case of the weeklies, tho Issues of the last month.) Confidence in Mr. Wilson Several writers compare the Rooseyelt Ad ministration with the present and lf to the advantage of the latter. . Ray Stannard Baker, In "Wilson After Twenty Months" (1), writes: The word which best describes the feollnB of the country toward Mr. PfWT"". w"' ,n.. is. persona! popularlty-toward Mr. Wilson. It , Is confidence. The- White House, under Mr. TJ 11 son. Is a, rather sleepy place compared with What It was under Mr. Roosevelt No such crowds nre ever to be found thronging the ante rooms. (nn such gatherings at luncheon anddta nir. no such conferences early In towmtar and late at night, no such glare of publicity. It presents hn aspect of high ser ousness. It Is an immensely orderly place. It la i as though gome one had made tlmo nnd motion studies after the manner of the scientific managers, and all unnecessary and Inefficient processes hod been eliminated. Since the beginning of the European war. Mr. Wilson's prestige has been steadily rising. He has met each emergency with quiet skill and courage. He is undoubtedly stronger now, both with Congress and the peoplo, than over 'before. One of the pities of democracy Is that ef ficiency and ability alone aro not popular. It Is moro Important to be o, "good mixer," to tell funny stories nnd remember people's names. It was probably in responso to stories of hlo "coldness" that Mr. Wilson made an amusing apology for himself at the Washington Press Club last winter. George Creel evidently docs not consider such criti cism well founded. In "Our Visionary Presi dent" (2) he wrltea: He has had tho vision to see beneath the stagnancies, of materialism down to the well springs of. an intense spirituality. He does not mistake the backwaters for the living stream. The Insistence that he la the last word in well-ordered Intellect, a personal!')- as cold andVemote as though Kant "'("que of Pure neason" were galvanized Into action, w the stupidity of muddlers who have lost all touch with the elemental simplicities. As one follows the man from his entrance into pub lic life, the "thlng-maohlne" theory becomes In creasingly obsurd. for at every pent there Is plain Indication of whtte-heat passion and In dubitable evidence of an Instinctive devotion to democratic ideals far more dominating than the mere convictions that proceed from con scious thought. "Not Guilty But DpnH Do It Again." Five weeks before the election, and prior also to the reconciliation between tha two old friends, Colonel Ifarvey wrote of the President aa "A President who baa not merely done his own best, but better than any other since Lincoln." In the last num ber ot Tho North American Review, com menting on' the elections, the Colonel writes t It was a characteristic American verdict, epitomized tn the classic phrase of the Farth mit, "Not guilty, but don't do it again." The Administration was not repudiated at the polls; it waa sustained! it was nJt eva effeb tWely rebuked; but it was unmistakably warned. Mora definitely than at any previoua time. President Wilson Is the man of the hour. In & similar vein, Samuel Bly the, surveying election results all over the country, unaei' the whimsical caption, -An Off Tear That Waa Oo," wrltea (4): A political rebuke that continue a man !n a Bciltlan o d what he wants to do U pat so muea a rebuke as a topte of eonvertatto; iff his opponents.

The Mexican Folfoy Words of commendation from the fifty ana Jconoelastlo masses aro unusuaL Ma Eiastman wrltea editorially CO); For my part, I give unreserved arfmlrallon to President Wilson for hlo statesmanship ,5l the Mexican situation, and for his unsWervrMr purpose to let the Mexican people ifoVern of not govern themselves. Gratitude to Woedrow Wilson all alone for giving tho peasants of Mexico their chance. And gratitude to fortune for placing him and not his combustible rltwl In the White House when tha nthf fmlf of the earth Is on fire. In a recent editorial the Independent, r ferrlng to tho Prcsldeht'a message, wrote n) Mr. Wilson's observations on this vexed qH tlon of national defense blow like a cooling wind over the fevered excitement of the vocifer ous Jingoes. We are convinced that hero Presi dent Wilson Interprets tha spirit of the Ameri can people aright. The address Is a splendid document resonant In tone, admirable in ex pression, lofty in spirit Tho diversity and typo of tho porlodtcaJs opposlnff tho President la Interesting, tfhoy are Collier's, Lcsllo's, Outlook, Pearson's and Town Topics. Town Topics writes of tho President' messago (8): Ho kopt up his imitation of royalty's speech from the throne by delivering personally the longest lecture he has as yet Inflicted u"pdn Congress, over 8000 words, when SOQ would have sumced. Ho stigmatised tho general demand for adequate national defense as "an hysterica! spasm." Carefully avoiding all explanations pr tho policy by which hq has nade Mexico an other Belgium, he ' wasted time preaching eooncmy-all politicians do ths. 'No matter,, let us forget his verbose address, as Congress will, and enjoy the holidays In spite of It. AMUSEMENTS ACADKirr OF MUSIC PHILADELPHIA ORCHESTRA LEOPOLD qTOKOWMCI.
