It is an old tradition in Congres-
a . .a
sionai circles in Washington tnat a
President must not "interfere" with
either branch of Congress. He may
submit whatever views he may have
on a subject, and recommend the
passage of any legislation he may de
sire, but after that, according to tra
dition, he must sit with hands folded
and watch legislation which may be
highly desirable to the people, be
peacefully chloroformed in commit
tee and pass into oblivion.
It is said that Woodrow Wilson is
going to disregard this tradition.
This will be for the public good. The
only ones who will protest will be
those opposed to the progressive
ideas that Woodrow Wilson stands
The President will be sustained by
popular sentiment The republicans
as well as democrats, have for years
been demanding a square deal at the
the hands of the public servants in
Washington. They still demand it
