LITERARY NOTES Seven Yeurs of Roosevelt. "In seven years we shall know whether Tjeodot Roosevelt has done things for us or has done things to us," writes Liidsey Denison in the March Circle magazine. "(It is possible he has done both.) But at any rate, the final ledger balances will be in positive form. "We shall have, for instance, the Panama canal. "It may read that we ought to aave a sea level canal instead of a lock canal it may read that the canal cost half a billion dollars when it ought to have cost only a third as much. "The point is that there will be a canal. "in the relation of the government and great corporations we shall have something which may read: Presi dent Roosevelt perverted the spirit of the constitution to meet his own prejudices it may read that he fed the clamor of the people for a blood or money sacrifice by forcing the op eration of a law which he himself has admitted to be sometimes equit able—the Sherman law it may read that many industrious and honest men in banks, stores, factories and ditches suffered want and saw their wives and children hunger and dieof when possibly (but not probably) the meals of national life for which he was striving might have 'been brought about automatically and gently with the passing of the years of uimself and his successors—just as President McKinley intended to eliminate the spoilsmen in the gov ernment departments quietly and without disturbing the nation by self doubts. "The point is that it has been prov en that there is not a corporation in the United States which has any certainty" that it can violate the law of the United States with impunity that there is always hanging over such a corporation the threat that a president may be elected who will so execute the real will of the nation that nothing can stand between them and a calling to account. "In the history of Mr. Roosevelt's personal attitude his office (after all the jokesmiths have finlshel talking about his homilies on everything from the married relation to the life of the farmer, and from high finance to birds' eggs) it may he written that he has overborne his wisest advisers and has leaned too much on reflex commendation of his every thought, which must come to a strong man from a clique of self-selected per sonal admirers. "The point is that we have had a working and a human president anl not a mechanic who has watched and oilel a machine for the mere honor of holding the office." What Every Country Editor Knows. During the eight years I worked in a country newspaper office I had am ple time to study and absorb the daily incidents of the life and work of a country editor. I learned for a certainty that a man to qualitfy for such a position must be a ma chinist, a politician, a financier, a diplomat and a printer, besides hav ing a smattering of all professions. He must be a versatile, forgiving, brave, prolific, calm, temperate in all things, and withal he must have excellent bodily health,abundant phy sical strength and a head filled with concrete knowledge of his village, the country, the commonwealth, and all things of national and interna tional moment and importance, from the best methods of treating the pip in light rahmas to the latest rev olutionary disturbances in the Bal kans.—Don Cameron Shafer in The Bohemian Magazine for March. When the President Becomes an Editor. Mr. Roosevelt is to leave us for awhile, and certainly the manner of his going is appropriate. He de parts from the United States, this scene of his years of volcanic of ficial and personal activities, and goes to another land to sound his dominant note. Shots will sound and blood will flow, and his knife will find the living hilt. The scalps and skins of the kings of the jungle will dry upon his tent pegs. He will work and sweat and. kill and be hap py. And then he will return, satisfied with the slaughter, fingering his crowded note books, posing amid his trophies. It will be quiet here, but he will not let It remain so. I ven ture the prediction that It will not be long after he gets back before he strikes the war post in the Outlook office and begins to pound the war drum and to chant. And there will be many to hear, and, if he writes over his signature in the Outlook of the things that he has Indi cated to his friends he will, there will also be many to squirm and to suffer. For Theodore Roosevelt, aside from what other plans he may have for the future, intends to be In pri vate life what he has been to official existence—the Dominant Note and the Bib Noise.—From "Exit Roose vent—the Dominant," by Irving C. Norwood, in The Outing Magazine for March. CHARLES NAGEL, "COMMERCE AND LABOR." Chares Nagel, the prominent St Louis lawyer, has been selected by Presdent Taft to guide the destenies the Important departmnt of Com merce and Labor. While he has lived long to St. Louis and has for many years been identified with the growth of that city, he was born in Colorado county, Texas, and therefore must be accounted a southern man in the na tional administration.
