The present world cruise of Amfri

the globe. When President Itoosevelt
£k' v«y
announced thfit the fleet of battle-
so ships waa to make the long Journey
from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean,
the Democrats turned prophets of evil
'•4 and predicted manv disastrous things
would follow us a consequence of tills
«##lj unprecedented move.
Armada and World CratM,
The armada took its drpurtufe from
Y# Hampton Roads, leo. 16, 1907, nnl
fv* after a wholly successful voyage around
the Horn, of About twelve thousand
s.t^" miles, it dropped anchor in San Finn
Cisco Harbor May «. 11)08. The ships
*.'.-4: that form the four divisions of the fleet
In this record-making cruise are: The
I Connecticut, Louisiana, Maine, Mi
sourl, Georgia, New Jersey, Rhode I si
k .and, Virginia, Alabama, Illinois, Keur
ssrge, Kentucky Ohio, Minnesota, Kan
and Vermont To which were add
ed the Nebraska and the Wisconsin, al
1 ready In I'uget Sound, thus making a
fleet of eighteen flrst-elass modern
battleships in perfect condition.
There were already In the Pacific
and Oriental waters the flne armored
cruisers West Virginia, Colorado, Ma
ryland and Pennsylvania. Their two
sister ships, the California and South
Dakota, were also on the Pacific, and
the powerful Washington and Tentus
Mt want from the Atlantic to join the
armada, thus making eight armoretl
cruisers to be added to the eighteen
battleships. Iu addition there were in
the Pacific several protected cruisers,
gunboats and other lesser craft. All
told there were ten hundred and fifty
officers and nineteen thousand five hun-
drsd men.
In due time the main fleet of war
chips resumed its western coarse and
will touch at the leading ports of China
... and Australia, pnss'iuc on east by w iy
of the west, and coming finally to Mai
ta and Gibraltar, where it will nm!
and ultimately return to its sturtln^
point at Hampton Roads, some time
*arly nert February.
In this expedition the Republican
party has a policy which projects Itself
far Into the future, but it is an entire
if" arimnderstandlng of the whole scheme
to suppose that it is aimed narrowly
or definitely at *ny single power. II la
one of those robust constructive poil
dn of the party gauged on world lines.

threat to all existing government*.
W«lls| North and Sonth America.
The ayes of the world have followed
tmt fleet with absorbing Interest. One
Of tlM great advantages gained by this
cruise la the cordial welcome and close
acquaintance which it has evoked from
the governments and peoples of the
elklaf republics of Latin America. To
tlM Brailllans. the Argentines, the Chi
liana and the Peruvions, the mighty re
ynbtlc 0f the north had been merely a
•sr.. name or a dim figure, powerful and
honored perhaps, but not actunlly
known. For years there had been lit
tlt or no visible evidence of the wealth,
or authority of the United States, In
the chief South American ports. But
they were all visited by swift and
atately liners, flying the flags of the
maritime powers of Europe.
At every South American port the
our navy, our government, our in
stitutions, our people, our aims, our
i Industries, our trade—every conceivable
thing that is ours, have been discussed
aa they never were before, and that
without suspicion of our political and
diplomatic Intentions. One business
hotiaa in New York states that its
South American correspondent has in
creased fourfold since the fleet visited
Rio Janeiro. In this case it seems that
trade may follow the battleships.

statesmen as the theater
s coming great struggle*
for military aad ooaunerclal mastery.
When Chiss awakens, to the degree
that Japan Ir now awake, events pass
ing the power of the imagination to
conceive will take place.
to the palliative and beneficent
effect this cruise may have ou China
and Japan, there can be but one opin
ion. While Uncle Sam was little con
cerned about the rumors to the effect
that Japan was about to descend upon
the Philippines, or possibly to make a
demonstration off our Pacific coast, yet
he did desire, and perhaps is in a
position to insist, that the Open Door
policy be maintained in China. Japan
has apparently never been quite recon
ciled to this policy, and is said to have
worked to establish in China the poli
cy of "spheres of Influerce." To this
America, with European nations, stren
uously objected—-and does still object.
This Open Door policy stands as a
world monument in diplomacy to tae
constructive genius of the Republican
party. William Howard Taft is in full
sympathy with this constructive policy.
Mr. Taft on his last trip to the
Orient was given such an enthusiastic
reception at Shanghai, China, as was
never before accorded to any visiting
statesman by officials of the Celestial
Kingdom. On that occasion Mr. Taft
made a speech which, in spite of its
genial tone aad cautious phrasing, was
at once recognized as of the algheat
International importance. Said he:
DOOR. The acquiescence in this poli
cy of all the nations interested has
been so unhesitating and emphatic that
It is hardly worth while to speculate
as to how far the United. States would
go in the protection of its Chinese
trade. This feeling is likely to
find expression In the action of the
American government. The United
States and the other powers favor the
Open Door, and if they are wise they
will encourage the empire to take long
steps in administrative and govern
mental reform."
So we have not far to seek for an
other very powerful reason for this
world cruise of our fleet. Mr. Taft
simply announced In diplomatic lan
guage that this cruise is Intended to
say that the Open Door policy will be
maintained at any price. He la In
thorough sympathy with the alert con
structive policy of tha Republican
party. He la one of Its chief expon
Perfection of Dlaclpllae.
This world cruise of the mighty ar
mada of sixteen ships of the line has
been, and Is being, conducted with a
precision worthy of the flne traditions
®f American seamanship—which speaks
the highest praise. Every man, from
officer to common sailor, has felt that
the eyes of the nation at home were
following him, and that however mod
est his situation, he must bear himself
worthily as an American sailor, In the
stoutest squadron that ever flew the
Stars and Stripes.
There is no question but that this
cruise will be noted by all commenta
tors of the future as one of the most
remarkable happenings of any age.
Even though the American people have
not fully understood the significance,
when all the facts are known, it will
be found to have been one of the dis
tinctive acts of statesmanship of the
present Republican administration. Mr.
Taft is the man to continue this hia
tory-maklag policy of the Republican

any republic la the world. He is

and when surrounded by the
same environments that made
Roosevelt great will prove a big

ministrator, the greatest the
country has ever seen, and Is a

The Democratic leaders have been
for years making loud declarations
against corporations and trusts and
railroads and have, nevertheless. In
stituted no legislative steps in all this
time for the purpose of restraining
abuses. They are now indignant that
the Republican party, in carrying out
the promises of Its own platform, la

which they, with a srperb self-compla

have been made manifest by signa not

the public conscience and a demand for
