The other thing; of historic interest connected with the past and the pres ent is that John W. Foster succeeded Mr. HlHine as secretary of Mate. Mr. Foster is the fainer-iii-la w of llobertlat Jiinslng, who has been appointed sec retary of stale to succeed Mrynn. I'nder all the circumstances, with the difficulty with Germany looming. and the Mexican situation compllcat-1 ed, the question of the personality of the head of the state department be comes Interesting and important. The measure of .Mr. Winning's capacity Is best Indicated by the fact that through ;( nil the long months of trouble with Kuropcan countries over neutral rights und problems raised hy war he 1 Is the man upon whom the president has leaned. Many times it has been pointed out by the newspapers that the I resident was relying on the ad vice of Mr. Lansing rather than on Sir. Uryan. New SiTctar,v PMslte of Itryan. TheVHrioun notes whb-h have ifone to the Kuropean powers notes which j have been widely commended for their strength have been basically thu products of Mr. Lansing. The presi dent has couched final drafts in his own language, but the meat of the notes, the knowledge of International law required to make them stand up in the eyes of the diplomacy of the world, has been supplied by Lansintr Therefore the administration will have no uneasiness over the charac ter of the chieftainship of the state department. Mr. Lansing is a demo crat and his appointment will meet with the political requirements. He is one of the best products of American schooling in international law and di plomacy. He is in the prime of his bowers, suave, courteous, unassuming' and able to get along admirably with other men. In a word he is the oppo site of Mr. Hryan. He is on good terms with the members of the cabi net and the diplomatic corps. He had a high reputation as an international lawyer when he entered the state de partment and this has been Increased as opportunities for the use of his knowledge came. liy a most unusual procedure he was asked on several occasions to sit with the cabinet when acute questions were under discussion. The latest oc casion, before Mr. Bryan's retirement, was on Friday, June 4, before there had been open manisfestation of dif ferences between the president and Mr. Hryan. llrst to Itise From Hanks Since Pay. Mr, Lansing is the first secretary of Mate who hag risen from the ranks since President McKinley promoted Assistant Secretary Day when Secre tary Sherman resigned his post in Spanish war day. He enjoys hard work, the wivei chair, and tedious problems as Bryan detested them. Mr. Hryan, it is said, would not devote himself to long, arduous study. The training of the orator could not he thrown off by Hryan. Mr. Bryan is, what the phragethakors denominate, a "progressive." Mr. Lansing, if the an alogy can be carried out, is "stand Pat" In his view of thinKs. -Mr. Lansing Iihs the appearance of a successful lawyer.

At no time during the months of uneasiness has he re fused to answer a question or angrily asserted thut b (inestiou propounded to him whs an "Improper one." Such was not the custom of .Mr. ilryan. He r seated being asked pertinent ques tions and chastised his interviewers, declaring their queries improper, l'rienil of Knvos of lllg Powers. As son-in-law of John V. Foster, and nn associate of .Mr. Foster, re garded as one of the greatest diplo mats In the I'nlted Slates in recent years, .Mr. l-ansing absorbed diplo macy and International law. He knows the niceties of International proce dure, and the etiquette of diplomacy. These things make his relations with foreign representatives easy and jio a long way toward adjusting matters that, If approached In a cold, business like way, might end In failure. Kven before lie entered the state de partment, Mr. Lansing entertained the leaders in the diplomatic colony and enjoyed fiiendly relations with the representatives of the big powers. His home.
