GENERAL LEONARD WOOD.
General Leonard "Wood, tho
esteemed friend of President Roose
velt, as military governor of Cuba,
did his duty with great faithfulness
and with ever the right spirit upper
most. His work iu the island was
well done and he returns to the
United States with the rewards
which belong to a good and faithful
servant. He did a great service for
the Cuban people as well as for his
President Roosevelt, before he be
came president, became responsible
for his appointment. He made no
mistake in influencing President Mc-
Kinley to select him for the great
and important post. General Wood
grew upon the country from the day
,he was appointed to the present time
and stands before the people today
as a very prominent figure.
There are other duties awaiting
him, and since he has proven his fit
ness for difficult service to his coun
try why not appoint him military
governor of the Philippines, thus giv
ing him an opportunity to lift his
country and tho Filipinos from a con
dition that threatens to Involve both
for years to come. It would be right
and proper to give him a free hand
to go to the Philippines and help
the Filipinos establish a Philippine
republic, as he has helped establish
a "suzerainty" ropublic in Cuba,
where he resorted to none of the
atrocities practiced in tho Philip
pines, in spite of tho fact that ho
had worse people to deal with in
Cuba, according to Admiral Dewey,
than ho would have to contend with
in the Philippines.
There is little doubt that General
Wood is a pacificator of no little mer
it and there is a great flold awaiting
him In the far off Islands of the Pa.

NEED OF DIRECT LEGISLATION.
"Direct legislation is government
by the people, with laws initiated by
the people and executive officials
whose tenure of office can at any time
be terminated by the people."
Under the initiative live per cent
of the voters can compel the submit
ting to the people of any legislation
they desire for a vote, when, if it
receives a majority of the votes, it
will be thereby enacted, without re
garu 10 tne action, interests or
opinions of legislator, executive or
other public official.
Under the referendum upon de
mand of five per cent of the voters
in the district affected any measure
passed by auy law making body
shall before becoming operative, be
submitted to a vote of the people,
for their approval or rejection, when,
if such law fall to receive a majority
of the votes cast, it will be thereby
rejected, without regard to the ac
tion, Interests or opinion of legisla
tor, executive or any other public
The initiative means that the peo
pie shall be able to initiate or begin
legislation. The referendum gives
the people the power to veto any law
which is passed by any legislative
body The petition of five per cent
of the voters for a new law is called
the initiative. The vote of the citi
zens on the law Is called the refer
endum. It does not require that
every law shall be submitted to. the
people but only those petitioned' for.
Direct legislation does not mean
tives or officials. It simply gives the
voters control over them. It makes
them servants of tho people Instead
of masters. They are not given un
limited power as at present.
The initiative and referendum
would not necessarily need to be of
ten used as tho fact that they could
be used at any time would be suf
ficient to prevent bad legislation.

THE SENATE DODGES.
Senator Hoar's plan is to make
things as easy as possible for con
gress In the matter of the Isthmian
canal and to fnsten the responsibility
for everything -except the appropria
tiou of money on the president.
Summed up briefly his proposition is
that congress authorize the presi
dent to build a canal at an aggre
gate cost of ?180,000,000, all the oth
er troublesome details, including the
selection of a route, to be left sole
ly to his discretion.
It is certainly flattering to Presi
dent Roosevelt to have it seriously
urged that these practically unlimit
ed powers be conferred upon him,
though any one man, however con
fident of the soundness of his own
judgment, might well shrink from so
formidable a task. At the same
time it is impossible not to see in
the suggestion of Senator Hoar,
which had already been informally
advanced by other senators, an ob
vious attempt to shirk the duty im
posed upon congress. The- house, iu
a fit of reckless enthusiasm, has de
cleared for the Nicaraguan route.
Since then the Isthmian Cai.al com
mission has recommended the adop
tion of the Panama route and the
state department has negotiations
with the countries whose territory
the United States would have to use,
if either of the two principal routes
were chosen. For the senate to
dodge a decision under the circum
stances would be to confess Its own
Inefficiency or irresolution.
When $50,000,000 was placed at the
hands of President McKinley in
anticipation of war with Spain,
there was Imperative need for the
promptest possible action. No such
emergency exists respecting the ca
nal. The choice of the route is a
matter that will concern this country
for all time, and it should be set
tled as nearly as possible In accord
ance with the wishes of a majority of
the people as expressed by their
representatives in the legislature.
It bespeaks no distrust of President
Roosevelt's wisdom to seek to save
him from a responsibility which does
not properly fall to his share. Phil
