sober second thought displaced tho
first hnsty and unjust criticism of
tho peoplo for whom thc-so strong
men Inborod so truly nnd so wull.
This Is truo of President Tnft.
Ho has boon mnllgued and nssnll

who condemned him hnstlly nnd un
knowingly. They uro NOW learn
ing tho truth, nro beginning to np

In bohnlt of Mr. Tnft It Is simply
nsked of tho American pooplo, In
sobor second thought, nnd In tho
clonr, whlto light' of hnt ho has
already nccompllBhod
"Judgo this man by his Itecordl"
It has been truly said of Presi
dent Tnft nnd of him alono that
ho "vitalized political platforms."
With Mr. Taft a platform promise
means moro than ompty words.
Bvon a brief record of somo of his
political nets shows how faithfully
ho puts this prlnclplo Into practice
Tho republican platform of 1908
promised tariff revision. It did
NOT specifically promlso DOWN

understood It nnd acted accordingly.

It was a crisis!
It wns no tlmo for continuing a
LARITY! And Mr. Tnft wns big enough,
broad onough, wlsu enough to risk
personal misunderstanding In ordor
to bring relief from pnnlc nnd do
With a courage far greater thnn
many hnvo given him credit for ho
followed his sincere conviction of
what was RIO I IT AND 1IK8T AT
THAT TIMB nnd signed tho bill.
You know tho storm of pitiless
criticism oven shameful PERSON
AL AIIUSK that was hurled at
him. You know nlso how firmly,
pntlsntly, yet UNFLINCHINGLY, ho
met It.
And you know further nnd In

nro FORCED TO ADMIT- thnt Mr.
Tnft WAS ItKHIT, nnd his critics
went WRONd! For tho tariff lias
vlndlunted Itself uuiiuestlonnbly
nnd triumphantly!
If there haVl been nothing In tjio
bill but Mr. Tuft's plnu for tho
modern nnd scientific tnrlff board,
THAT ALONE would stamp It ns
marking nn epoch In tho tnrlff his
tory of tho United Stntes.
Thu tariff board tnkos tho tnrlff
out of politics nnd makes It whnt
It should ho n strictly Hclontlflc,
proMrtty developing measure. It
Is no longer n moro plaything of
politics. Careful, exact Investiga
tion takes t)ia placo of guess work
and "hlt-or-mlss" experiment.
Wu Ting Fung, that great Chin
ese statesman, has publicly stated
that Prosldont Taft, more thau any
othor one man, Is responsible for
tho now republic of China. Tho na
tions of Europe nnd Asia were Just
ubout to divide China up among
themselves when Mr. Taft called a
halt. Tho now republlo auother
world udvnnco In domocrnoy result
It was President Tuft who sottlod
ii dangerous mtsundorstnndlng that
hnd been created betweon this
country and Jupan. And ho It wns
who secured tho now Japauoso
treaty, ensuring peace on the Paci
fic, nnd friendship Instead of possi
ble bloodshed.
When nussla arrogantly assumod
a position that might havo Involved
her In war with any othor nation
but tho United Statos, Mr. Taft
solvod tho problem In his quiet, of
fectlvo way.
Tho postofflco departmont Is now
on a selfsustalnlng basis for tho

Tho postal savings bunk has al

Mr. Taft In Immensn contrast to
th oxtravngnnco of tho yonrs lm
medlntoly preceding his administra
tion reduced tho oxpondlturos of
the government by thtrty-ftvo mil
lion dollars nnnuully.
Although President Tnft has held
offlro less thau four years his rec
ord of prosecutions of Illegal trusts
Is greater than that of any othor
president. In n little ovor threo
years there hnvo been forty-five
prosecutions ns ngnlnst twonty-flvo
In tho soen nnd 'one-half years
preceding Mr. Tafl's administration.
Tlmru Is overy reason lo expect that

Moro are Just a fow other prom

Is responsible;
