(International News Service Staff
WASHINGTON, Sept. 20. No man
In the United States today has had
so distinguished a publlo career, nor
been 80 much in the public eye during
the Inst epochal half century a Elihu
Root, whom President Harding has se
lected 9 the second member of the
American "Wg Four" to negotiate an
armament understanding with the
great powers of the world.
Few men hnve been so- praised and
so castigated, few men have so many
warm friends and admirers and few
men have more bitter enemies. Yet,
friend or foe, it Is universally recog
nized that there is no man in Ameri
ca today more qualified by experience
or training to represent the Lnlteq
States at this conference than Elihu
Theodore Roosevelt once said of
h'.m; "I would walk on my hands and
knees from Washington to Oyster Bay
to make him President." And Inter
this same positive T. R. said: "He
stands as the representative of the
men and the policies of reaqtlon; he Is
the representative of the bosses and
of special privilege."
And. curiously enough. It Is quite
probable that T. R. was sincere In
both utterances. His f.rst statement
referred to Elihu Hoot's amazing abil
ity as a thinker, an executive and a
lawyer; his second referred to Elihu
Root as the master legal mind for
"Boss" Tweed, as counsel for. the Steel
Trust, for the Sugar Trust, Standard
Oil, for the Gould Railroads and for
scores of other big interests and cor
porations. A man of curious paradoxes Is Elihu
Root, nmv nearlng his seventy-seventh
year and about to enmiRe on an
other great public duty with all the
enthusiasm of a boy of twenty-one for
He Is a maker and breakcr'of consti
tutions. Ho is quoted as having once
said that he "could drive a horse and
wagon through every article and
amendment of the Constitution." It is
perhaps doubtful If he ever Bald It, be
cause Root is a modest man, but
whether he did or did not the quota
tion gives an Insight into the. man's
marvellously agllo mind and his mag
nificent legal attainments.
Throughout his long legal career he
has figuratively driven a horse and
wagon through many of the Federal
laws. On the other and more construc
tive hand, he wrote a Constitution for
the State of New York which students
of government point to ni a model.
Ho has been attacked as a militarist
by sonp-hox orators from Maine to
California because he was Secretary of
War In McKlnley's Cabinet during the
trying days after the Spanish-American
War, because ho directed the pa
cification of Cuba and'the Philippines,
because he is the father of the Ameri
can General Staff and because he
threw a war-like bluff in the face of
the whole world by sending the Ameri
can fleet around the world when a war
was threatening with Japan, a "stunt"
for which Roosevelt Is generally
H' has been attacked as a "war
maker" and the representative of In
ternational bankers and yet there Is
no man In America today who can
show a public record so repleto with
labors in behalf of International peace.
The world recognized these labors In
1912 by awarding him the Noble Peace
Between 1904 and 190S, while Secre
tary of State In Roosevelt's Cabinet,
he toured all of South and Central
America, speaking In tho capitals of
these countries and urging tho cessa
tion of the little wars which have for
decades retnrded tho progress and
prosperity of the countries of the
Western Hemisphere. He was the In
stigator and adviser of the Central
American Peace Federation held In
Washington In, December, 1907.
He Is president of the Carnegie En-
downment for International Peace,
His latest work has been the organiza
tion of the Permanent Court of Inter
national Justice under the Iieagiie oi
Nations, on which he refused a seat
as Justice only a few weeks ago.
Few men In the world today can
show a peace record that surpasses
His support of the League of Na
tions brought down on his head the ire
of many of his fellow Republicans,
particularly of the "Irreconcllables.1
Root was In favor of the League of
Nations. When he saw that the Re
publicans never would accept It as
brought back from Paris by President
Wilson he labored to "doctor" It up
with amendments so as to make it
palatable to his party. In this he
failed. But while the league became
the principal issue In the last cam
paign and was being attacked from
every stump In the United States,
Elihu Root, was busy In Europo or
ganizing the Court of Justice, formed
under the league.
Elihu Root was born In Clinton, N.
Y., February 15, 1S45. His father was
Orren Root, for many years professor
of mathematics at Hamilton College,
and Elihu was reared in the best, of
He was graduated from Hamilton In
1864 at the age of nineteen, and three
years later he was graduated from the
law school of the University of New
He started practice In New York and
met with Instant and astonishing suc
cess. He soon became known as one
of the keenest legal minds of the New
York bar, but It was not until he be
came counsel for William M. Tweed
that his reputation became national.
After that he received the cream of
the legal business of New York, being
counsel for the Sugar Trust, the Stand
ard Oil and other great interests.
At thlrly-slx he was District Attor
ney for New York, winning many
noted cases. He held the post four
years nnd then resumed private practice.-
In 1S9 Flinti Root left a practice
netting him 200,000 a year to take
the Secretaryship of War under Mc
Klnley. The Wnr Department wns In

One of his first acts was to put
Leonard Wood In charge of pacifying
Cuba, lib then organized a volunteer
army and pacified the Philippines, af
ter, which ho personally dew up a
system of government to take the
place of the military autocracy which
had prevailed since the cession trom
Spain. Tho system of government
which Root drew up was complete In
every particular, even to the establish
ment of a school system.
These things accomplished, ne
turned his nttention to affairs at
home, reorganized the War Depart
ment and created a General Staff. -
While he was thus engaged John
Hay, Secretary of State, fell 111., So
great was McKlnley's confidence in
his War Secretary that he entrusted to
Root much of Hay's work so that for
a time Root was, practically speaking,
Imth Secretary of War and State.
The Boxer uprising In China came
along during Hay's Illness, and Root
handled it in the same efficient man
ner that he did anything else.; .
When Roosevelt succeeded McKln
ley after the assassination at Buffalo,
Root handed In his resignation, desir
ing to retire, he said, In ordcY to
"augment his small financial- re
sources. " He and Roosevelt were close
personal friends, and when, a year
later Roosevelt asked him to accept
tho Secretaryship of State left vacant
by Hay's death, he did so.
He cleaned house In the State De
partment In much the same manner he
had In the War Department, com
pletely reorganizing, among other
thincs, the consular service.
Elihu Root Is generally credited
with Inaugurating "Pan-Amerlcan-Ism,"
or the policy of a vloser and
more friendly understanding between
the Americas, North and South. He
labored Incessantly toward this' goal
during his loiyr service In two Cabi
nets. Perhnps the best remembered act of
Root as Secretary of State was his
negotiation of the "gentleman's agree
ment" with Japan, by which Japan
agreed to restrict her flow of coolies
Into the United States.
It wns at Root's Instigation that
President Roosevelt sent Jthe ' fleet
around the world on Its memorable
trip, Admiral "Bob" Evans expressed
himself on that famous Journey as
"ready for a fight or a frolic," and the
result was a substantial betterment In
America's foreign relations. "
Root retired from the State Depart
ment a rew weeks before Roosevelt
was succeeded by Taft and took his
seat In the United 'States Henate.
There his great abilities were ' Im
mediately recognized, and he oop "bef
came the ndmlnlstrafton lender.' He
retired from the Senate In 1 9 in.
He was a staunch advocate of pre
paredness before the United States en
tered the war. Since his retirement
from the Senate, Root has led a com-'
paratlvely quiet life for him.
At thoearnest solicitation of Presi
dent Wilson he consented to head the
extraordinary mission to Europe dur
ing the revolution of 1917, his last,
Elihu noot's fame Is not confined
to his own country. Foreign statesmen
and critics have chorused his praises.
Viscount Bryee, author of "The Amer
ican Commonwealth," once character
ized him as "the greatest Secretary of
State America ever had." Sir Cecil
Spring-Rice, former British Ambassa
dor, said that "as a diplomatist Root
hns no peer." Lord Man ley said he
was "the ablest man T ever met." '
