Victorious In the Celebrated Alaskan Seal Fisheries Controversy His De fense of the McKlnley Bill Refused Golden Offers For a Seat on the Federal Dench. Mr. Taft's eight years of history making utility upou the bench of the Sixth federal circuit, during most of which period he was presiding Judge, were prefaced by three years or high accomplishment as bollcltor general of the United States. President Harri son picked blm to be the legal repre sentative of the United States hi ac tive lltlgatiou In 1S0O, when he was only thirty-three yearn old and bllll hud three ycara of hla elective term upon the superior court bench In Ohio to serve. Solicitor general of the United States at thlrty-thn! Scarcely aion than a boy In j'ears as ripened matu rity ta reckoned and already dolrig deeds of national momentdeeds of International moment, to be exact, for Inside of fero weeks of taking tti oath he ftftfl put up to him tho defense of tho yr eminent In the Alaska seal uahsjejM controversy, at which th catfPJfeBGnd the diplomats of three couu eatss the United States, Kugland and Canada had been dinging for fonrteeu years, Urtefly tho sum and substance of It was this: We had captured and con demned to be sold the Canadian schooner Suyward for Illegal sealing In Alaska waters. Knglaud and Canada Mipported tbe-clalm of the owner for damages, which we rejected. Pend ing nrhttratlon tho case was brought unexpectedly before the supreme court. It was clever tactics on the other fel low's imrt, and it put us In rather a pickle. 'While Cauada would toot be bound by an adverse decision IfiU'e cose went against her-r-that ftsMio would not le compelled to accept the decision ax final should wo lose the fact of our losing In our own court would count against us. The new solicitor general sailed iu. Ho read the documents. Ho clutched and held fast. When he emerged from the murk of International law, treaties, precedent and kindred clurltlcs he had a 300 page brief ready to present to tho court It won for him und for the United States against two of the best lawyers in the land Joseph n Choato and faldcron Carlisle, Jr. Then It fell to him to defend Hie McKlnley bill lu au action brought by an Importing firm who objected to paying higher duties Imposed by tho bill and pleaded that Speaker Heed's way of counting a quorum, by hieh tactics the hill had passed the house of representntlves, was unconstitution al. The importers urged that enough members present lu the house, al though constituting a numerical quo rum, could break a quorum by not voting. "If voting aud not present Is neces Bsry to make n quorum, why Is tho speaker empowered to omploy tho ser geant at arms of the home to compel absentees to attend with tho object ot making a quorum?" queried Mr. So Ucltor General Taft. The McKlnley bill was saved. The youug solicitor genoral won. won, won aud kept on winning for thu govornmont for tho two yearn ho was iu oltlco.

H" TRIBUTE TOMR. TAFT How China Apologized For the American Boycott. JUDGE SIGNALLY HONORED. Recognition of His Efforts to Bring About Remission of Boxer Indemnity. National Friendship Reaffirmed and Commercial Amity Restored. It was through Mr. Taft, when he was In Shanghai last fall, that the Chinese apologized for the American boycott that was Instituted In the king dom a few years ago and expressed their appreciation of the remission by our government of the Indemnity granted because of the Boxer rebellion When It became known that Mr. Taft was coming to Shanghai representa tives of all the Chinese guilds In the city met and arranged to give hlra a suitable reception. The guilds In China control every branch of commercial ac tivity and nnltcd form la every city and commuutty a thoronghly repre sentative body. Each of the scores of guilds lu Shanghai took part In the demonstration to Mr. Taft For the puriwse the beautiful Yuyueu gar dens in Bubbling Well road were ob tained. Governmental cognizance of tho greeting to Mr. Taft was through the vicarious participation of Tuan Fang, viceroy of the Llnngklang prov ince, in which Shanghai la. The vice roy ordered his representative, the taotat tong, to spare no expense in ar ranging a suitable reception for Mr Taft and to present the bills to him. Americans long resident In Shanghai agreed that no such signal honors had ever been paid to another foreigner by tho Chinese. A heavy rainfall, which began the pre lous night, threat ened to mar or wholly prevent the garden party. At great coat und bu expenditure of labor the committee completely roofed over with canvas a good hbure of the gardens, Including long walks and paths, so that Mr. Tnft and the other guests were enabled to move about freely, fully protected from the storm. All of the npeakers referred to the obligations under which China bad been laid by the remission of tho Box er Indemnity and the contributions made by Americans for tho relief of victims of the recent famine In China. Mr. T.tft was cheered and applauded for several minutes when he said: "When I was here a little more than two years ago there was Just a little bit of mist, a little bit of fog, lu the clear sunshine of our friendship. But we gave assurances at that tiuie which I am glad to say have been can-led out an the one hand, and on the other there Is every ovldonce that the mist has cleared away. Tho boycott Is a thing of tho past. It Is a closed episode." Two young Chinese ladles bore for ward a massive silver howl and pre sented It to Mr. Tuft as a memento of his visit. The bow, which was a rure specimen of Chinese silver work, was Inscribed, "Presented to tho Honorahlo William II. Taft, Kecretnry of War of tho United States of America, aa 0 Mo mento of tho Oardeu Party Given Iu Ills Honor by tho Chinese Residents of Shanghai." Copious comments were printed by the eastern press upon the reception by tho Chinese to Mr. Taft and Its significance as n tribute to the man and as it renewal of tho old tlruo bonds of amity between the nations. Many patriotic Democrats fraukly declare that their purty has never hml a lender like William Jennings Bryan. Whether this Is an oxultunt boast or a mclnucholy admission is a matter of conjecture. It Is proudly couteudod by Bryau'b tdvocatua that he Is a successful lec turer. So was the Immortal Mrs. Cau flle, for thnt matter. YoS the White House was uover designed as- a lyceuni agency. Relinquished Certainty of Elevation to 8upremo Bench at Call of Duty. Proved His Ability as a Nation Builder A Real Altruist. In the beginning of our occupation ot tho Philippine tho problotrw tbara were military. Nothing of civil func tions could ho essayed until the rebel lion had been put down. In Hip mldat of this the first Philippine commission was sent out to look over tho situation "as bearers of the blessings of 11 lllier ntlug rather than a conquering na tion," na President McKlnley wrote. The commissioners decided thnt It was n bud mess. Mr. McKlnley was ndvlned to try to do nothing by civil power, bnt to give n military governor fnll sway. This would havo been a fatal error. Any continuance of the military govern ment beyond tho Uiue when Its ntern restrictions wero required to Induct? pence and maintain It would still fur ther hare Jeopardised tho trust of tha natives tu our good faith. And It had., already been so strained that It would stand no mure tension. Tho pcoplo at homo, too, wero grow-, Ing thoroughly out of conceit with "tbn, little brown brother" Onr itppptlte had become sated of military conquedti Too many long, narrow boxes wero shipped over sea and land for intw ment In village churchyards, too many mothers mourned sons, done to death by bnllctn or bolo, to support general conviction lu tho doctrine of expan sion. We thought we had no prototype of Cromer, no giants of colonial admin istration upon whom Mr McKlnley might call to "lay the foundations of a superior clrlllzatlou, with specific ref erence to the needs of tho people to be governed nnd with definite rcferenco to the welfare of the Islands, both ma terial and moral," as be bad put It There was dearth of men wholly In harmony vlth the president's conccp tlou of what our national duty to the Filipinos comprised, who would con stantly bear in mind that It was liber ty they wanted, liberty that they should have, as Mr. McKlnley had promised, pledging our fnlUi na a nation- liberty, as ho wrote, "of the whole Filipino people and not of a decimal fraction of them, vho through the leadership of education and prop erty have acquired a domination over the groat mass." Mr. Taft had not been thought of. If' his sentiments on the Philippine ques tion was known It was patent that ho was neither a believer in Mr. McKln ley 's policy nor In our eUdcal right to be In the Islands. Sold the president one day to tho then secretary of stnte, William R. Day, "I want a man who Is strong, honest and tactful, a man of education nnd executive nbllltv. a man who Is fearleiM, but conservative, who will get along with tho army people." "Judge Taft fills the bill If he will take tho Job," said Mr. Day lu a stroke of Inspirational genius. Thoy sent for Judge Taft, who was then nu the su preme court bench, and told him what was wanted. lie shook his head. "I cannot bo of use to you there, Mr. President," he nuswercd. "I didn't want to take thn Philippines. It was. a mistake." The president regarded him musingly for a moment, then, "Nor did I want to take them." said he. "t had to. There was nothing elae to do. We must build a new nation oat there. I want you to help us." Secretary of War Boot added hts persuasions. He showed both sides ot the medal to Judge Tnft. Perhaps ho was motived more shrewdly than ho affected, for he descanted upou the dif ficulties of the task compared with the congenial and relatively easy work that Judge Taft had upon the bench, with the almost ultimate certainty of lelng elevated to the supremo court. He must forego all this, satd Mr. Boot But what a chance offered lu tho Philippines to do, to create, to dis prove the Infallibility of some of Kng land's pet theories of colonization, to bring Into being a nation. Such argu ments turned (he tide. Judge Tnft ac cepted 0110 of those duties "which," lo quote hlni, "is an entirety and not fulfilled until it la entirely fulfilled." Ah he took ship, und uhv.i;.-: t.fior ward, there was in his mind the con cluding paragraph of the Instructions given him by the president: "A high and sacred obligation reuta upon tho government of the United Slateu lo glvo protection for property and life, civil and religious freedom and wise, Arm und unselfish guidance In the paths of peuce and prosperity to all the peoples of the Phlllpplno Is lands. I charge this commission to labor for the full performance of thl obligation, which concerns the honor and cousclence of their country.
