Made Thousands of Friends
In commenting upon the appoint
ment of Ex-President Taft as Chief
Justice, Attorney General Daugherty
says, "Probably no appointment ever
made by the President has received
the universal commendation that the
appointment of former President
Taft has received." Chief Justice
Taft's popularity is due, in no small
measure, to the fact that in his trav
els and lectures in the United States
he personally met thousands of peo
ple, just the average American cit
izens in the small town, the univer
sity, the teachers' institute, the lit
erary club, and by his hearty and
friendly characteristics immediately
attached them to his circle of admir
ers and well wishers. At the same
time, this kept him in intimate touch
with the mass of people and their
viewpoints and consequently he
takes to the Bench not only the high
personal regard which the American
people hold for him but he thereby
confers upon the Supreme Bench
very valuable asset, the asset of
popular esteem and confidence which
probably no other appointment ever
brought to the Bench and which
could not be brought to it by any
jurist however eminent who had
lived a cloistered life.
both branches of Congress. The
veto was based upon substantially
the same reasons as those presented
by President Harding a few days ago
when he urged a postponement of
consideration of a bonus to ex-service
men. The bonus bill of 1875
provided for the payment of $3 1-3
month for all those m service.
President Grant's veto message read
"Washington. March 3, 1875.
"To the House of Representatives:
'House Bill 3,341 is herewith re
turned without my approval for the
reasons, first that it appropriates from
the Treasury a large sum of money
at a time when the revenue is in
sufficient for current wants and this
proposed further drain on the Treas
ury. The issue of bonds, authorized
by the bill to a very large and in
definite amount would seriously em
barrass the refunding operations now
progressing, whereby the interest of
the bonded debt of the United States
is being largely reduced. The
passage of this bill at this time is in

Probably no man in public life in

Chief Justice Taft. While he was yet
a young man, before he had "settled

Justice Taft made three tours of Eu

Soldiers' Bonus Measure
Washington, August I. When
President Harding appeared before
Congress a few days ago to oppose
the passage of the Bonus bill he re

the spring of 1875, vetoed a soldiers'
bonus bill which had been passed by
Livestock Industry Gets
$50,000,000 Long Time Loans
Washington, August 1. The ef
forts of the Harding administration
to afford prompt and sutlicient relief
to the live stock industry met with
success in the completion by private
bankers of the $50,000,000 pool to
be used in long-time loans for live
stock interests. The pool is in actual
operation. The head offices are lo
cated in Chicago and are in charge
of practical live stock men and bankers.
The method of operation is very
simple. No direct loans will be
made by the pool as it does not wish
to use any of the funds to set up
machinery for investigating the ap
plications. The loans are made
through local banks and cattle loan
companies, the pool furnishing the
funds and the local bankers guaran
teeing the loans. Loans will be
made upon recommendation' of local
banks on stockers, feeders, and
breeding cattle. Paper will be made
payable in six months from date but
subject to three renewals of six
months each which will be giving the
live stock industry a two year credit.
This method of relieving the live
stock industry was preferred by the
administration to legislation by Con
gress; first, because it could be put
into operation more quickly than any
machinery set up by congressional
act; second, because it relieved the
government from increasing its bur
dens which must in the long run be
charged up to and paid by the taxpayer.
