5 Two wars have caused the whole
'K world to realize that the Pacific Ocean
Is to be the scene of the greatest hu
man activities In the future. The war
of the United States with Spain guvs
fej us possessions which Dring us within
speaking distance of Asia, and the
v| Russo-Japanese war revealed Japan to
the world as a powerful and progres
k slve nation, whose future sphere *f ac
7 tlon would of necessity be within the
boundaries of the ocean separating
America from the Orient.
Taft a Constructive Statrsman.
The Honorable William H. Tuft has
been one of the chief advisers and
strongest advocates of the Republican
administration policy during this for
mative and historic period. He has
been a pioneer, not only along the lines
of statecraft, which have had for their
object the development of our western
states, but he has given particular at
tention to the situation in the Orient
with reference to the future commerce
between those far away countriee and
the Pacific coast of America.
In his own inimitable way and unit
inga unique personality with the high
est authority as a diplomat, lie poured
oil on the troubled waters in Japan
and changed the political storm there
raging, into a placid sunshine of peace.
In China he created such enthusiasm
Ml the Orientals have never shown to
an/ other visitor and left that empire
with the belief on their part that the
United States Is not only ready to en
ter into commercial reciprocity, but to
•till stand as China's friend and lend
ite influence to see that she gets jus
tice from those who would violate her
territorial integrity.
Taft ai Ortaotal Tnie,
In his Shanghai speech, addressing
body of influential merchants, diplo
mats and Chinese government officials,
Mr. Taft spoke In part as follows:
"We do not complain of loss of trade
that reeults from the employment of
great enterprise, ingenuity or attention
to the demands of the Chinese market,
or the greater business acumen shown
by oar competitors. We would have
the right to protest at being secluded
front the trade of China by reason of
our Insistence of the policy of the
Open Door. The acquiescence in this
policy of all the nations Interested has
been so unhesitating and emphatic
that it Is hardly worth while to specu
late upon the probable action of the
United States in case the interests of
American merchants are placed In jeop
ardy, and how far the United States
would go In the protection of its Chi
nese trade, I cannot say. It is clear,
however, that our merchants are being
roused to the importance of the Chi
nese trade and they would view with
deep concern any and all political ob
staelee which menace that expansion.
"This feeling Is likely to find expres
sion in the action of the American gov
ernment The United States and the
other powers favor the open door, and
If they are wise they will encourage
the Umpire to take long steps In ad
ministrative and governmental reform,
the development of the resources of
China, and the improvement of the wel
fare of the people. To do this would
add to China's strength and position
an a self-respecting government and aid
ker In preparing to resist possible for
eign aggression In the seeking of undue
and exclusive proprietary privileges.
Thus no foreign aid will be required
to enforce the open door and the policy
•f equal opportunity for all."

During recent Republican administra

with the Far East of something like
§160,000,000 per year. We have landed
An army on Chinese territory, and have
been drawn willy-nilly Into the vortex
of the Far Eastern question. During
the period policies have been formulated
which have compelled us to take a hand
in momentous negotiations. We have
de*ntteljr enrolled the Far East among
the objects of our commercial and dlplo
sailcitude. Things have changed

The United States has come into pos
session of the Philippines and all the
political and strategical responsibilities
entailed by this movement. The partici
pation in, and suppression of. the Boxer
rebellion, the expanding recognition of
the supreme importance to the future
of American trade, of the open door, the
realization that, with the exception of
Japan, no country is so well situated
KS the United States, Industrially and
geographically, to make the most and
the best of the development of China.
These and other events have trans
formed American Indifference to the
fortunes of the Far East Into a real,
live, tingling and vigilant concern.
Loflcml Coaiaaerelal Event*.
It did not need the Chinese boycott
Of American goods, or the outbreak of
tbe trouble with Japan over the Immi
gration question, to convince an Impar
tial onlooker that America's relations
with the powers of the Far East would,
before long, be more immediate, of
greater moment and possibly of greater
hazard than our relations with the
powers of Europe. The American fleet
has foreshadowed the systematic asser
tion of American power in the Pacific
American interests in that ocean, com
mercial, political and territorial, have
beea neglected far too long.
Father of tka PhillfflnM.
Mr. Taft is in a senso tbe father of
the Philippines. It has been hie kindly,
constructive statesman's hand that
evolved order out of their original
chaos. In his report submitted to Con
gress. as a result of his visit to the
Philippines to be present at the opening
of their first Assembly, he made four
recommendations. First—action by Con
gress admitting to the United States
Philippine products under such condi
tions that they would not Interfere
with American tobacco and sugar in
dustries second, the removal of re
strictions as to acquiring mining claims
and lands third, further legislation
authorizing the government to carry
on an agricultural bank, which is now
authorized only as a private enterprise
fourth, the repeal of the law applying
to the Islands the coastwise laws of
the United States.
Pklloiophr «f Davelapaaeat.
Our nation has grown by obeying the
instinct of development. We are to-day
entitled to be called Greater America,
hut that greatness will be lost If we
forget the political philosophy which
has made us great—expansion of Amer
ican thought, territory, mechanical skill,
civilization and philosophy. This Is an
auspicious time for the creation and de
velopment of our export trade. The un
explored and undeveloped markets of
Asia furnish the opportunity. All other
fields have been occupied, and to at
tempt to wrest them from other nations
would be of doubtful expediency. In
the Orient the commercial possibilities
exceed the dreams of the optimist.
Are the American people ready to
abandon such a situation and leave It
to the mercy of the Democratic party
with Its failure of fifty years looking
at us from tbe past?
In a business sense the young voters
who have come forward since 1904 have
more at stake than any other class in
rendering a right decision. Their ac
tive lives are ahead. They have more
years to live, and are now laying the
foundations of their business careers.
National policies and conditions are of
tho highest consequence to them. Per
haps they are farmers. If so, let them
ask the older generation how farmers
fared under the last Democratic admin
istration. Let them take the uiarnet
reports of to-day and compare them
with the prices that prevailed when Mr.
Bryan made his crusade for free sliver
and hurled defiance at President Cleve
land because he stood by the gold
standard. At the same time Bryan de
nounced the Republican party for its
protectionist as well as sound money
position. Perhaps the first voter Is to
engage In manufacturing or mining, ns
wage-earner or otherwise. Does he
want his American rate of wages and
the industry he chooses reasonably pro
tected against foreign comietItlonl If
lie does Mr. Bryan's leadership will
take him in the opposite direction.—

Water Transportation Must B* DevH

Canal Declared to Be an Imperative
Duty of the Government.
Chicago, Oct. 10.—Business at the
closing session of the fourth annual
convention of the Lakes to the Gulf
Deep Waterways association was
transacted at a rapid rate. The old
officers were re-elected with the ex
ception of D. R. Forgan of Chicago no
a member of the board of governors.
Mr. Forgan retired in favor of E. S.
Conway, Chicago. New Orleans hn!
no opposition for the next convention
and ft will be held In that city. Th"
speakers of the day were Theodore
Shonts of New York and John
Ockersoa of St. Louis. The following
resolutions were adopted:
"To promote the general welfare is
recognized by the Constitution of the
United States as one of the funda
mental principles of government.
"The general welfare of the people
of the United States can best be pro
moted by establishing the commerce
of the oountry on a sound basis ami
by so enlarging it that agricultural
and mineral resources may be devel
oped to tho end that production and
manufacturing may be encouraged.
"Easy and adequate transportation
is tho first essential for the develop
ment of the commerce of the United
Statos and the responsibility for this
development rests upon the general
Railroads Inadequate.
"It has been demonstrated during
the laat ten years that when business
conditions are normal the transporta
tion facilities afforded by the railways
are uttorly inadequate and it is stat
ed by the traffic managers of railways
that the development of railway fa
cilities cannot keep pace with the in
creased demands upon them. The
leading railway authorities declare
that water transportation must be de
veloped in order that the freight of
tbe country may be handled properly
and promptly.
"Under the Constitution the regula
tion of commerce between the states
devolves on the general government
and neither states nor private capital
ean be permitted under the Constitu
tion to assume these duties.
"The duty therefore devolves on the
general government to give the conn
try adequate transportation facilities
by developing the navigable water
ways. This duty should be recognized
by congress at once and the water
ways should be made efficient freight
carriers, otherwise the United States
cannot maintain commercial equality
with other nations which are paying
adequate attention to their waterways.
"The all Important question of
transportation Is a paramount !ssiu

Lakes to the Guif Canal.
"This convention declares that the
opening of a deep channel way con
nectlng the Great Lakes with the Gulf
of Mexico to be an imperative duty of
the general government, and that this
work should be immediately begun
and oompleted as speedily as possible.
"Any plan for Inland waterway de
velopment should comprise a main
trunk line In the form of a strait con
necting Lake Michigan with the Gulf
of Mexico by the Illinois and Missis
sippi r^era. The improvement of the
branches of this main line, such as the
Upper Mississippi, with its tributaries,
the Ohio with its tributaries. Includ
ing the Tennessee and the Cumber
land. the Missouri, the Arkansas, the
Red, the White, should proceed simul
taneously with the development of the
mala line.
"The deep waterway is practically
complete from Cliloago to Joliet and
the continuation from Joliet to St.
Louis will cost only |?1,000.000. Tho
state of Illinois, assuming that the
federal government will take the re
sponsibility of completing the water
way to the gulf, Is about to co-operate
to the extent of 820,000,000.
"A special board jf survey was cre
ated by congress last year to report
en the feasibility of a deep waterway
route from St. Louis to the mouth of
the Ohio. Delegates to this conven
tion demand that when that report 13
made congress shall at once provlce
funds sufficient to begin operations in
a large and effective way."
