Tho president and his lovo for tho strenuous nnd tho warlike, has at last found nn nvonuc for his big stick thnt may lend iu Into a dlsagroe.Vilo sltuat on. Up to this time the g-vorn' mon; of the United SUNw lias b9ii content to mind Its own hu.-dnets, dis claim from tlmo to time upon tho Mon roe doctrine, and the theory that America Is for Amcrlcin haa be come sort of a fetish to conjuro with and solid grape nnd cnnlslor to shoot at Europeans when thoy discloto n purpone to seek a foothold on this continent or meddle In the affairs of American state. Heretofore wt have )-en reasonably free from the charge of meddling In the affair of Europe We have taken n few long range shots at Rusela for hur treatment of the Jbwh, and onco long ago thrashed tho Harbary plratos. Hut In that Instanco wo had a direct nnd porsonal grolv- nine. Up to this tlmo wo have nut seriously osKtyed tho role of worlJ power.

Senators who have exc.uivl the pros Ident's policy toward Sin'j Dimingo on tho ground that the Monroe 1hv trine must place I'pon thin govern meut the duty of achi;; as policeman In this hemisphere seem to think the representation nt the Morocco con ference is nn altogether needless nnd unwarranted, If not dangerous, In Jectlon of, this government Into tho quarrels of Europe. They call It an uncalled for break' lug down of tho traditional policy of the United States, though perhaps a legitimate result of tho Idea, much proclaimed In administration circles that this country has Just become a "world power." Whllo republican sen ntors aro careful to conllno tho exprcs' slou of tholr views to cloak rooms or to glvo thorn only under pledgo of secrecy, It Is believed tho Hncon rem 1 nt (on will dlscloso nn amount or crlt Iclsm far In oxcoss of thnt launched against even tho Santo Domingo "arrangement."

Senator Hucon's resolution calls for nil the facts boarlng upon tno par this government Is to play In Algoc Iras, and says: "Our only legitimate concern with Moroccan affairs relates to tho very limited cotnmorco botwoen thnt country nnd our own, and Is in no matter concorned with tho gravo political controversy which has been carried on for somo tlmo past between Oermnny on tho ono sldo aid Franco nnd Englnnd on tho othor as to tho fu turo political control of Morocco, It having been tho sottlcn policy of th! government since Its foundation to abstnln from tnklng part In such no- lltlcal controversies lwtwfun Euro penn nations."

PRESIDENT'S CHANUE OF FRONT. In deciding to appoint no more southern negroes to office President Roosovolt mnkes a significant confes sion of error, nnd ho Is to be con gratulated upon finally coming (o nn ndorstanding of the racial conditions' tho south. And yeb his present attitude is not nltogother credltnblo for It Is an nounced that no lntonds to glvo no- grooa proformont In doubtful states whor othelr voto will count for his pnrty In futuro elections. Elthor ho s yielding to southern sentiment -nt tho uncrlfleo of his convictions or ho playlnjc a low sort of party polltlos. If he Is yielding hi oonvfrtlona h exhibits nn unstable mind, for nt the tlmo of tho Crum.npiiolnttneut ho was most Insistent upon the jiolnt or hold- ng open i!k door or hope to tho ne gro, and such n positive and militant conviction ought not to bo ylolded ir Is sound, ir It tuny lie yclldcd nt the behost or southern sentiment It tuny be yielded at the Irahcst or northern sentiment nnd the conclusion reasonable that other convictions may be surrendered for the sake or pnrty expediency. This Is not the first time tho pres. Idont has yielded to circumstances, and we apprehend thnt It will not be the last. The railway rate question Is the next question or contest, nnd no body need be surprised ir tho pi est- dent's II n nl surrender or this his last and most conspicuous contention. All history proves that statesman ship is largely a matter or compm nilao, nnd no lawmnkor or Initiative executive Is over ablo to get qulto the measuro ho desires, Wlso men In public lire understand this fact and are content to hccure the best thnt Is posfllblo under all tho circumstances Hut Mr. Rochevolt always starts out with a cockMiro programme and tm nounccs that thoro will bo no compro nilso. Hence, when ho Is compelled to compromise his yielding tnkes the form of n defeat or creates tho suspl clou of n sacrifice of principle. President Roosevelt has done much but ho Iins promised and threatened very much more. A great deal of what ho has dono nnd what he 51'! proposes Is qulto beyond the constl. tutlonnl limitations of his office. Thr.t which ho promises beyond IiIb office Is more than apt to fall, and som of the thlngB he has done are apt to bo undone. Now ho standi In frwt danger of railing to do muih thnt n proposes within his official funo Ion, and when he begins to ncki'.owleil,; error as ho ban dono In '.he policy of appointing southern negroes ho ma terially wonkuns tho forca or his pros tlgo. Thoso who opposo his ideas fcr any reason will tnko courage and oppose all the harder. With this weakening In declared purposo and chnngo of front In dls tlnctlvo policies there Is also a per ceptlble waning or personal popular!' ly which further encourages opposl Hon. Altogether It nppears posslblo I not probable that tho mighty Roose velt Is hastening to his fall as a mas tor statesman nnd a populnr Idol. It will not be surplrslng. though the Record will regret to see It come to pass, for however much It has dl-; seated from many of the president's vlows. It hns rejoiced to bellovo tlu.t his election gave him an extraordi nary opportunity to accomplish n vast amount of good for the people.
