IS MERELY JUGGLING Roosevelt’s Attitude Not Likely to Deceive Anyone. That He Is Seeking the Presidential Nomination In 1916 Is So Patent That His Disclaimer Is Sim ply Absurd. Mr. Roosevelt's Maryland friends are not convinced that his letter to a Republican of that state takes him out of the presidential equation. They ex- 1 pect hltn to be a candidate In 1916. 1 heir heads are very level. " ken Mr. Roosevelt declared promptly upon Ills triumph In 1904 that he would not stand again for the j presidency he was entirely sincere. It was a moment of supreme satisfac tion to him. lie was occupying the highest office within the gift of the people, and by a most Impressive ma jority they had Just endorsed his course in it. He had four years more *n which to impress his views on legis • ation. So, recalling the third term “radition. generally accepted as an In hibition, he gave the country an as surance which moved It to general and sincere admiration. Rater, the tempter came. Out of power, Mr. Roosevelt began to sigh for a return to power. He had tasted •if It, and he liked It. He was still young, and his appetite strong. Some of his friends who had not fared as the) thought they should have fared under his successor played upon Mr. Roosevelt’s weakness. They told him that Republicanism under Mr. Taft had degenerated, and that only ! he, Roosevelt, could restore It to Its | former estate of respectability and usefulness. As this assurance jumped with his ambition, Mr. Roosevelt em braced It and acted on it. Swearing he would never run again, he ran again. lie is eager to make another -ace. ! He and his map!. Intimate friends are preparing the way. Nothing could be ! Mainer. Hroad daylight is not more so. I Fob this reason Mr. Roosevelt's present juggling with the matter will ; cause some regret even In his own political household. It presents him 1 in a disappointing aspect. He Is j stooping In an effort to conquer. In 1912 he appeared as a man who had 1 changed his mind. NVhat he then did he did boldly. He shied his castor into the ring, and called attention to 1 the headpiece and what It signified. Now he is disclaiming what every- ' body is convinced of. Seeing that ' Hull Moosery is disappearing, largely ! under the charge that it represents ] only his personal fortunes, he is de- j daring that, although he is wrapped up in the cause, the cause is not wrapped up In him, and that he may ' not be the one chosen to lead the Hull j Moose party two years hence. The country will not be deceived. It has taken the measure of both Mr. Roosevelt and his aiders and abetters for another term for him in the White House, and It will read all his de’Iver ances In the light of common knowl edge and common sense. Koosevelt Helps Democratic Party. There is no doubt that the Demo crats have taken on renewed hope In all of the states In which Roosevelt has spoken. Hoth Republicans and Pro gressives would have united In Ne braska to take one final smash at Hryan, but Roosevelt, who is so much opposed to bossism. ordered his fol lowers not to make the combination. In Springfield, III., Colonel Roosevelt I dined with Governor Dunne, much to the joy of the Progressives. His large audiences in Illinois have infused en thusiasm into his party, and thus In creased the chances of Democratic success. Surely Not a Popular Tax. The new Issue in the political situ ation has already become acute. Un der a gag rule which limited debate and prevented the offering of any amendment, the Democrats In the house have imposed an additional tax burden of over $100,000,000 upon the American people It will, perhaps." said Representa tive Garrett, of Tennesse, "not he a popular tax." Solomon never spoke a truer word. It will not. This is hard ly the time to add to the burdens of the people, especially when the destg. nation of "war tax" is absolutely In accurate. Sees End of Progressives in Ohio. i he death of the Progressive party In Ohio is foreseen by Ralph D. Cole, of Findlay, former member of the house, and recently a candidate |n the Republican primaries for Crtifed States senator. Mr. Cole was recently In Washington to confer with Republican leaders The Ohioan declared,his con fidence in the success of the Republi can state ticket In the ftuckeye state and predicted that the party will gain eight or nine seats from 6hio in the next house of representatives # Treasury Must Be Reedy. These aro parlous Mn:^s the world over We are not at war with guns In our hands *vlih any power, but are em- ' barrassed by conditions which the fighting powers have produced; and those conditions must he met a* they i affect us Th«* Democratic revision of the tariff •* a failure as a revenue producer Democratic appropriations are record breakers I,et the respon sibility be Axed, but let the treasury be put in shape for any emergency i that may arise. PEOPLE WILL WANT TO KNOW imposition of War Taxes Must Be Jus tified by the Democratic Administration. Since the United States Is not en gaged In war the American people will scrutinize closely the war taxes Im posed by congress. There is no chance that the taxes will be approved by the people In a cloud of patriotism Marching troops will not distract the attention of the voters. Hands will not be present lo drown the protests of those who are pinched by the taxes The people will want to know why they are being taxed. They will want to know whether such taxes are neces sary, und whether they might not have been avoided by the practice of a llttlo economy since the IVmocratlc party came into power. If then1 were any real tames which influenced the election >f the Demo crats, aside from the spl-.t in the Re publican party, they were the high cost of living and the pledge of econ omy. The tariff for revenue only has proved a failure from a revenue-pro ducing standpoint. Before the war be gan, imports had increased amazingly, but the revenue had fallen off. If the new tariff cannot be defended as a revenue producer. Its acceptance by any portion of the public Is doubt ful. Certainly it cannot be shown to have reduced the cost of living. Its effect on business and employment Is already an issue in the congressional campaign. By bringing forward a plan for war faxes, at a time when the United $tateB is at peace, tlie Democratic party deliberately focuaos attention upon extravagance and the failure of the tariff for revenue only. It suggests an inquiry as to the reason why econ omies have not been practiced, uud j why the tariff for revenue only has not produced the revenue. Many of these issues might have been overlooked by the public If they had been left as abstract problems, but with a large proportion of the pub lic feeling the pinch in the pocketbook some original thinking will be done ut the polls. NOT THE TREASURY’S UUTY Regulation of the Rate of Interest la No Concern of That Branch of the Government. I Until now there hus been little rea son to find fault with the Washington i attitude toward the banking and bust 1 ness community In the emergency i which the Kuropean war has created I The latest utterance of Secretary Me Adoo have too much of the dictatorial and minatory note which he was In cllned to strike last year when cur rency legislation was being shaped Hy directing public notice, us he has done, to the proclivity of Interior banks to hoard reserves at this time and restrict credit, tho secretary of the treasury may help to relieve money market strain. The manner In which Mr. McAdoo reported the dis covery of excessive reserve accuinula tion in many parts of the country wan not altogether fortunate, however, and I raised some doubts as to whether or' j not he was taking altogether the view ! he should of banking conduct. These | doubts are strengthened by the no tlons which the secretary of the treas ury has expressed regarding current interest rates on loans. There is all the difference in th» world between an unreasonable denial of credit and the grant of credit at high Interest when Justified bv the , necessity of discouraging expansive , borrowing. Mr. McAdoo Ih likely to ' do more harm than good by endeavor i Ing to establish the treasury as tli< 1 regulator of the rate of Interest, and It is to be hoped that the chief finan cial officer of the government has not i set cut on a course calculated to dis rupt the satisfactory concert that has i so far prevailed between the govern ment and financial Interests in dealing | with the conditions produced by tho war. Democratic "Economy." Democratic economy is. in fact, a fearful and wonderful tiling 'Ve ar< getting a remarkable taste of it. The 1 j Republicans have a good fighting Is- \ sue here and the appeal to the pant j Is a hopeless defense for their adver 1 sarien What voters will consider is ; how di«l the Democrats meet theli own problems; how, especially after ' i their years of "denouncing" Republi can "extravagance” did they meet the ! challenge to economize? Their record on the pork barrel is a cad answer tr these interrogatories It Looks So. « If the Democrats have a "pork" bar- ! rel. they have merely imitated their i predecessors.

NEW PAPAL SECRETARY OF STATE i. urdtnal Domenico Kerrata, secre tary of the congregation of the holy oftlce. whom the new Pope Benedict X\ has appointed secretary of state. Is regarded as the member of the Sacred college best fitted to occupy this ofTlcet second only in Importance and Influence to that of the papacy Itself Just at thlH time, because of the heavy burden resting upon the Vati can due to the war. He succeeds Car dinal Merry Del Val, secretary under Dope p|UR x. Cardinal Ferrata has hod a diplo matic influence such as comes to few of the college of cardinals. He has • had exceptional experience In ecclesi astical matters, and he has always manifested a friendly disposition to ward the leading statesmen of Italy and the reigning house of Savoy. His choice of secretary Is most pleasing to the Italian governftient, and It Is prophesied he may do much to heal * the breach between It and the Vatican.

In u manifesto Issued recently, gives expression to noble sentiments. He declares that the Irish people appre ciate the fact that the llritlsh democ racy have decided to give them bnck their national liberties; that Ireland has promised that a concession of lib erty would change dissatisfaction to friendship and good will, and that Ireland would bo false to her history did she not willingly hear her share In the burdens and sacrifices of the present Kuropcan war. Finally he makes the following appeal: I would appeul to our country men of a different creed and of oppo site political opinions to accept the friendship we have so consistently of fered them and to allow this great "ar, ns to which their opinions and ours are the samo, to swallow up all the smaller issues In the domestic gov ernment of Ireland which now divide -.“c rn°itr.'.r ,c*a‘od the,r b,°°d*.- •* high purpose their union in the field m,.v I! t h° 7'"! eDteml f°r ,l,w "ame their blood may bo the seal that will » I? n *, V" °n n tho home and tha‘ -nd in llbnr.,a.,en„.r.nd «mmon i, .l,''- ,re'an<' ,<,“0,h,'r ln »”« »•«•»» I- * 1 ■ I __ holds important post ----/ Secretaries of state have come and gone, administrations have changed, hut for more thnn a quarter of a cen tury Alvey A.

PRACTICAL HEAD OF RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT The government of Russia Is prar ♦ Ically In the hands of Prime Minister Goremykin. When he was made prime minister, February 13 of the present year, the rumors of approach Ing war began to spread In every cap ital of Europe. Goremykin has for many years been one of the leaders of the Nationalist party In Russian politics The Nationalists stand for Pan-ftlnvlsm. They are the bitter foes of the Pan-Germanic doctrine which unites the Teutons of Germany and Austria. The Nationalists of Russia have, for some time, been openly to favor of a war which would make the Hlavs supreme In Europe and check the growing encroachments of the Teutons In the Hlav territory of th«> Ralkans. Goremykin was a member of the Russian cabinet when Nicholas II as cended the throne 20 years ago. He has been In the confidential counsels of his sovereign ever since, sometimes a* a ni^mDer or Hi** rapinef and sometimes In a private rapacity He is now a man of seventy flve, enormously rich, haring made his money largely through business affairs connected with the government which do not par tlcu.arly redound to bis honor. He was bom to the hereditary principle of autocracy, v. as educated in It and has served It with conviction re-enforced by keen Intellect all his life. He Is an aristocrat In thought and adopts the pose of the aristocrat In his manner, apparently seeking to emphasize bis conde scension to the people when he appears before their representative* He succeeded Count Witte, the famous leader of the Uheral party, who was Itossla s representative at Portsmouth.
