Washington stoo,t before the men of his time somewhat In the same illation borne by Roosevelt to the nu n of his time. By many he was loved, by many he was hated, and it is pretty well authenticated that his refusal to be a candidate for the presidency for a third term had its inception in the knowledge that his own state, Virginia, was opposed to him. Kcwciiiiilofl Jack.MMi. But the president to whom, tem peramentally. Roosevelt Is most like. is Jackson. The savage onslaughts' made on him in Congress by public men outside of that body, and by the leaders of the conservative forces of the country, recall In striking fashion the attacks to which Roosevelt has been subjected. And yet Jackson was one of the greatest of the presidents, and the star of his fame shines more brightly with the receding years. Lincoln, now the best loved of all the presidents, and every where ad mitted to be one of the greatest char acters of all time, it Is necessary to remark was the most cordially hated man of his time in the United States. North and south detractors were everywhere In evidence, and it was not until the great civil conflict had been a generation removed In point of time, that he began to come into his own. Where Rosevelt will stand in his tory as compared with these three great figures Is not and cannot be known nt this time. It Is conceded, however, that he will have a place in that exalted company. His ambition. 'frankly expressed to his friends, has been to have such a place. He ha regarded Washington and Lincoln s the two greatest men the country has given to the world, and he has been fond, in his patriotic addresses and elsewhere, of speaking of the one as having founded the nation and the other as having preserved it. die hus wanted. In his day, and in the handling of the issues peculiar to it, to be to the country what Washington and Lincoln were to It in their day, respectively. He has said that if he failed it would not be because the opportunity was not present, but because he did not have the force and ability to grasp it. And so he has pursued his course es president, mapped out with great care, genuine patriotism and as much intelligence as he could command, personal not or the almost ,.,,ii-,i Mi ot an impulsive i l,i,i, he cither could i.i not control. It is also judgment of these men that those faults will not be remembered by posteritv, just as they have not been remembered In the case of Jackson, and that posterity will assign him a place in the galaxy of Americas great statesmen, because of the prin ciples for which he has stood so faithfully and aggressively during his service as president. His l iilqiie Personality. There is compensation in the thought that Mr. Roosevelt, us has been, and always will be, the case with men of his unique personality, has had all the virtues of his short comings, his weaknesses. His impet uosity, which has grated so harshly on many public men with whom he has come Into contact; his aggressive spirit; his sublime optimism and con fidence in himself; his tenoency i use, at times, the "short and ugly" word; his disposition to overcome all opposition by sheer mental and moral strength; his impatience with the slow and tortuous processes which congress inevitably pursues; his va rious peculiarities of mood and man ner, which are tesponsible for much of his unpopularity with large bod ies of well meaning citizens all these have been but the outward and visi ble signs ot an inward and titanic purposo to serve. These weaknesses have been but the necessary accom paniments of a character such as his. Posterity, putting aside these weak nesses, will analyse that character, Just as it has analyzed the character of Washington, of Jackson, or Lin coln: will separate the pure gold which it contains from the dross which has been somewhat too much In evidence with his contemporaries, and will assign to him a place in his tory accordingly.

IU feeling over the attitude which the Senate bus assumed toward the statehood bill has not subsided. The statehood advoeutes si-em to hJld Senator Uev eiidge of Indiana, the chairman of the committee on territories, princip ally responsible for the situation as it now exists. Several of them took hold of the charges which were made be fore the committee, and are having an fnalyis made of them. It Is understood Governor Curry has si nt word here that he wants the charges submitted to him, and tint he courts the most sweeping Investi gation. His friends here have been trying to get at the charges in an offi cial way, but with comparatively mile success. Senator licverldge has a resolution providing for u umnur investigation of conditions In New Mexico and Arl aona and which he tried to get through the Se-nate. He wanted an opportunity but was just as eagerly watched by Senator Owen of Okla homa, a member of his committee. It developed that Senator Owen was prepared to substitute for the Bever Idge resolution a motion to take the statch.od bill from the committee. He had circulated word of his Intention very industriously on the minority side of the chamber and had a goodly attendance, not only of Democrats but of Republicans, who favor statehood. This w-aa the situation when the re publican leaders heard of the Owen plan and that he was receiving co operation from Senators Foraker, Car ter and Curtis of the Republican. The Democrats welcomed anything that ould Hid In the flillibuster they were conducting against the penal code bill and the Kepubllcans were in illy veil ed sympathy with them. It was feared however, that the situation would be come eo complicated by letting tne statehood matter get into the legisla tive hopper that Senator Beveridge whs urged to withdraw his n-Holution. The Indiana senator was the more willing to do this as he learned that a severe denunciation of himself and his action in connection with the handling of the statehood matter In his com mittee was in contemplation. lHniilo.

During the presidential campaign ti4 years ago certain Whig newspapers published an absurd statement derog- tory to the Democratic candidate for president James K. I'olk. under the aption. "Baron Roorback's Tour Throught the Western and Southern Statitf." The statement was easily disproved, and probably did little or no harm to the man it attacked. Kver tiiuce then, in American political par- it nee, the "roorback" has been the ampaign lie, particularly the one ut tered so soon before election as to make Its answer a matter of dilficulty. Few languages are so free from for Ign elements as Oeriuan, in which veil medical and scientific terms are expressed by great polysyllables in stead of the far more concise Oreek and Datln forms in current utkj among other nationalities. At the present time, however, when the Berlin pa pers are full of the Austro-Turkish crisis, tins word "boicottiren ' is freely used. In addition to the erniHii verb Capt. Boycott is Immortalized in the "boyeotter" of the French, iioycoten" of the Dutch, and "ooycottlr ivat" of the Russian. As used nowadays by the ne -papers, tho word "Interview" Is ti.iid to have been the Invention of Joseph Mo Cullough, of St. Douis. and, accord ing to the Encyclopedia l'.ritannicu, It became popular In England In the eat y nineties.
