What the country really thinks of tho
President and his Administration Is prob
ably better portrayed In our magazines than
by nny other medium. 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.

In tho case of the weeklies, tho Issues of the
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"
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
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
"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
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

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'
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.
