THE MAKING OF PRESIDENTS
IT appears that Fairbanks has been tried and found wanting. It
may be that the people do not care for vaudeville politics, even
when mixed' with a suspicion of melodrama • and . the limelight.
A mixture of buttermilk and cocktails, complicated with the
rescue of a damp, unpleasant damsel from a watery, grave, was
.very by way of entertainment for .., the silly season, but the
people, by and large, could not be persuaded to take, seriously
v the persevering activities of the , press agent. -The only r result
. achieved was that people began asking, .What has Fairbanks done,
and what politics does he stand for? And ans/er seems to be,
in particular, or, at least, nothing of which he cares
to boast. 'SHi-l '-- •"'
.Within the republican party there is, .of course, a division
\u25a0of sentiment of the sort that always exists and must alwayscon
tinue to^characterize the opinions of any strong and important body.
One iaction-— we . use the term in a parliamentary sense— favors
advanced and progressive policies of the sort that Roosevelt advb
• cates. The other is conservative and very welK pleased with exist
ing renditions. Their opponents call them "reactionaries," while
they retort that the «Roosevelt followers are revolutionary, or worse,
and would pull down the temple about our ears.- ;
Fairbanks was first put forward by the conservative wing, just
to see how he would take with the countryA He has not taken very
welL ; His; active enemies riddled him with shot, while the indiffer
ent public were only amused at the absurd activities of the press
agents, of whom Mr. Fairbanks maintahte a multifarious staff.
In this situation the conservatives are v »turriing to Philander
Knox, senator from Pennsylvania. Senator! Khox has not made
himself ridiculous nor as 'yet afforded game for/: the . American
humorist It may be that he showed a certain lack of originality
when he announced in a recent address that he chiefly favored -a
"return to the constitution." We would not impute plagiarism,
which is odious, but it might seem that Goloner Henry Wattefsbn
had copyrighted this sentiment in the more pungent shape of "Back
to the constitution." \Ve greatly doubt; .'whether the plain people
.will work up any considerable enthusiasm over any of these "back
to nature" platforms? ' f - .
Politicians who watch things at the east are saying .that the
.real contest in next year's, convention will be- between :Taft 'and
i Knox. A tremendous effort, "backed by unlimited motieyv will \u25a0 be
I made to take the. Ohio delegation away from'Taft, and if it ''should
, eucceed that would . be fatal to his ambition: But it will' fail, in all
jprobability, notwithstanding: the activity of Fdraker. Knox will
;6tart in the race with the big Pennsylvania delegation behind 'him,''
.and allxthe conservative influences in the several states will be
employed to drum up delegates.
An odd factor of the situation is that the conservatives find
themselves in, some degree handicapped by their ,owh ; past activiT
ties. They, have .contrived, through the pervasive assiduity of
their press agents and led captains, to create a -certain body %t
"Fairbanks sentiment." \u25a0'•'' Now that'^ they find Fairbanlcs xvotfttdo,
. they- are compelled, to undo " their own work \ ari\l replace it with
an equally fervent form of affection for Knox. The situation is
embarrassing, because simple minded people do not relish being
asked to accept two distinct and separate gospels in one twelve
month. It is greatly feared that somerofUhe "Fairbanks senti
ment" may g^o astray, now that its object is* no longer considered
an eligible suitor; ',' Besides^ the "Fairbanks; sentiment/ cost fa lot
of money, first and last, and muclr perspiration of the brow. Unfor
tunately for the promoters, it cannot be handed over on a clean,
plate .to Knox. ./:' " ' . ' , / -
THE ONEROUS^ SURPLUS
ELLIS H. ROBERTS, formerly treasurer of the United States,
' writes" in the North American : Review on "The Wrong/ of; the •
Great Surplus." The existing surplus ,in 1 the treasury is nearly
$90,000,000, and Mr. Roberts" contends that the people could
use that money to .better advantage than letting the" government
spend it It should be left to fructify in the pockets of the people.
This is the argument: ' V i
