There are a f w men in the Congress of tin rnited states who stand upon tlie pi ml . r statesmanship, or at any late. i.;. .in i plane that is mar It. These in. n declare without hesita tion th it the greatest act of the ad ministration of Theodore Roosevelt was that of bringing the state of Cal ifornia to a realizing sense of Its duty to th. Union and thereby averting serious conflict with the. Japanese government. Probablv none except the president. the seen tury of state, one or two other close advisers of the adminis-j tratioii and the members of the Jap- , anesc mhassy In Washington know in! how narrowly complications, and vi rv !ik' '.v war were averted by me:" ro.rsr i;..esevelt followed.

In dealing directly w ith the . tion on the coast the P'sltlent kept his feelinns under control hotter probably than most men could have I j.nA uii niivaical xtrensth and his done. His physical strength anu nis ... mental vigor helped him. but there were times when he showed and could not help showing to some de gree his forebodings. It is possible to write with first knowledge of at least one instance. When Koosevclt dictated one of his long telegrams to a high official of California urging moderation and pointing out guardedly, yet effective ly, the danger that lay in ill-considered action, he weighed every word and every sentence. The telegram was finished fuirly' quickly when one takes into consideration the existing circumstances, but when the work was done there was no necessity for revision. The official to w hom it was adiiresse.l needed no extraordinary insight to learn from tin- text, guard ed as it was. that the matter was one 1 , ri.iii HiiLt It must be met with determination and with high resolu tion to do right by the country.

Trouble Averted for lTesoiit. it hns been said that trouble with the Japanese has been averted for the present. H Is very possible that It has been averted for all time. The WnahiniTtiin oiTli'lnls know that the Japanese government Itself and the I Japanese officials understand thor-1 nuHhly the difficulties that arise from j our dual form of government. The i niiministratlon probably was Inform-i ed that the advisers of the emperor j did not regard the proposed action of the legislature of some of the far western states as carrying w ith ( it In any sense a threat of action by tin- t'niti'd States as a whole. The difficulties lay with the masses of the people of Japan, who saw In the proposed legislation not the ac tion of Individual states, but the ac tion of the fnited States. Moreover, the Japanese were saying among themselves that their government w as willing to swallow an Insult to, the race. They could see nothing in the attitude of Nevada and California ex cept the taking of a position that tho Oriental as a human being was In ferior to the man of the west. The people of Japan gave the officials of the government just as much trouble as the people of Nevada and Callfor- ; nla gave to the administration of the ; I'nited States. .lap Intmiurnlloti Is tlierkctl.

The president's hope Is that the present victory w ill be lasting In its fruits, and that 110 trouble will come of it as a heritage to President Taft. The president-elect knows the Jap anese situation just as well as Roosr velt. While serving in the east as an official Taft came in touch with Jap anese affair", and he also came in touch with the Japanese. He has known from bis own experience and from the experiences of army and navy officers that the Japanese in official life were at one time arro gant In their attitude toward Amer ica.

Little MAKE Indiana Senator Would Have Commission to Get Pacts Concerning the Tarlir. I Indianapolis, Feb. is. The prin ipal speaker before the tariff com mission conference here yesterday was Senator Bevcridge of Indiana, v ho favors the proposed plan of a commission to gather facts concern ing the tariff so that Congress, in tlxing rates, can act Intelligently and without loss of time. Senator Rever-J idge said: Within less than four months a nw tariff will have been made. I hope and believe it will be the best tariff that Congress has ever con structed. It will be historic In this: That it will be the last American tariff created without the aid of a tariff commission a commission to get facts and make classifications for Congress, and not to fix duties, which it: the exclusive business of Congress. Immediate revision must not be de layed until a tariff commission is cre ated and lias made necessary inves tigations and arranged scientific class ilications that w ould require at least two years and ought to take a longer pi riod. So, for the last time, we must have a tariff bulldcd in the old way. Hut that this shall be the last tariff thus builded, we soon must pro . vide a commission of tariff experts. The present emergency never must be laced again. Tin Iff IliiiUliuit on a Iin.i inv . Basis.

ALL KINDS OF SPRAYS Y CO. ties, whether framing a so-called rev 1 nue tariff or a protective tariff, have handled this intricate subject in a way which would have crippled any busi ness man or corporation handling their enterprises In the same fashion. Moth parties have made the tariff ex clusively political; have waged cam paigns as to whether our tariff pol icy should be on the protective or revenue basis; work preparatory to revision has been delayed until the I eople have ordered Immediate re lsion; and so, finally, a new tariff l.as been rushed through without time or ability to get the facts, with out either the technical knowledge or scientific skill to make classifica tions. Other Commlshlons for Ia-ss IniMrt ant Subji-cts. Kxcept upon the tariff, Congress has seen the wisdom of a commis- M--n of experts to examine all sorts I of subjects and re port to Congress. I Vet the tariff is more difficult, lntrl-1 cate and far-reaching than all other present economic problems combined, excepting only the problem of cur u ncy and banking. In currency and banking Congress has acknowledged that it cannot wisely legislate until a commission shall have spent years In studying our own chaos of financial laws and the monetary systems of other nations. Congress created the bureau of cor porations for this purpose. After yea's of thorough work by this bu reau, no man In any party proposes to destroy It or utop Its labors. The same is equally true of the bureau of labor. Congress created the indus trial commission to find out certain facts. The report of this commission and those of the Interstate com merce commission resulted In the law for the department of commerce and labor, the bureau of corporations, the Klkins law, the rate law, tho Immi gration law and most of the reform laws of the last six or seven years. Tariff Commission of IHH2. The tarilT commission of 1882 de vised and recommended the most important features of o:r present tar ill administration. It originated the appraiser's court, and recommended mosi f the administrative tariff laws ol the treasury department which have since been adopted. Congress provided foi- th. administrative ma chinery designed by this tariff com mission. Hut the tarilT commission we ask for now does not gc( ho far as the tarilT commission of 1S82 went. We are now asking only a commission of experts to find out facts and make classifications. Congress Is to fix duties from these facts and adjust thriii to thesp classifications. A permanent tariff commission is inevitable. hecause committees of Congress cannot do the work. These con mittees attempt to find out the tacts by holding 'hearings.''
