The President at Charleston.
IX VIEW of all elrcuinsstniK'es the
visit of President Koosevelt to the
Chin leston exposition bids fulr
to bo followed by most gratifying
results. While little thought has been
given to the Idea that the Tillman
episode cnuid uioue 111 feeling of any
Importance in the city, ninny had mis
givings us to whether the president
would 1ip universally welcomed in the
Bouth on account of the newspaper talk
that was unintentionally aroused by
the Invitation of Hooker Washington
to the white house some time ngo.
Hut the leception accorded the presi
dent has been marked by unaffected
cordiality that has dispelled any doubts
as to the high esteem in which the
chief magistrate is held by the patriotic
citizens of the South. Every feature
of the entertainment thus far has been
characterized by a hearty good will
and genial hospitality that fully sus
tains the reputation of the generous
Southerner of ante helium days. He
gardless of politics or creed there seems
to have beeji a general desire on the part
of all that the president should carry
away only the most delightful recol
lections of his visit.
The Pouth, like the North, Is undoubt
edly allllcted with lestless and ofllci
ous spirits of restricted intellect and
unlimited vocabulary who profess to
hold the key to the situation ever upon
their tongue's end, and who can occa
hionally make considerable noise .when
allowed opportunity; but it is gratify
ing to observe that when the masses
are permitted to give an expression of
feeling ns in the present Instance, the
South is ever ready to prove that its
people aie too sensible and too loyal to
be affected by the petty Issues that oc
casionally arouse the demagogues to
During the present trip President
Koosevelt will not only be the means of
causing unusual inleiest to center upon
the enterprise of the piogressive city,
but will also have opportunity of doing
much in the way of further cementing
the bonds of friendship between the
two sections of our great country. The
evidence given' that the citizen of the
South today is living in the present
and not In the past augurs well for the
future of the nation.
The appearance of C.ipt.ilu Christ
mas upon the diplomatic singe may be
characterized as a vaudeville act of
Athleticism and the Rhodes Stan

could not himself attain them in early
life may be attributed to the causes
which Intenupted his college course and
carried him into unwilling exile, as the
wild Tartar hoi.se- bine the helpless Mn-
,zeppa to a throne. First in the order of
his preference he places scholarship and

poses of collegiate training.
There Is a reaction In Knglntul
against the overdoing of college und
unlvpislty nthlptlcH to which The Lon
don Times linn given the powerful sup
port of Its editorial approval. In a re
cent discussion or this subject It took
the ground that to permit a young man
to devote himself chlclly lo training
for lutcrscholtiHtlc and Intercollegiate
"events" ni the tllne when what he
most needs Is mental training and dis
cipline to lit 111 til for the serious busi
ness of life It to waste precious oppor
tunities without picscut or ultimate
compensation, "it Is Impossible," says
the Times, "to shut one's eyes to the
fact that from an educational, If not
from a national, point of view, the
thing Is vastly overdone." Its effect Is
to unlit young men for the careeis to
which their mental endowment and so
cial advantages would warrant them In
aspiring, A great many fine specimens
of the human animal may be the pro
duct of this system, but even In this
respect Its value has been overestimat
ed. Cause and effect are often trans
posed to the confusion of the seeker
after a basis for safe generalizations.
The fact that only young men with n
superior physical endowment excel In
nthletlcs mifilclently accounts for the
fact that those who excel In athletics
are usually fine specimens of physlcnl
That theie Is also a reaction in pro
gress In this country against the fad
of academic and collegiate athleticism
Is Indicated by the fact that It Is be
coming increasingly difficult to find
young men of the kind wanted who are
willing to "go in" ror athletics seriously
enough to satisfy the professional train
ers of school and college teams. The
difficulty is perhaps due rather to par
ental prohibition than to youthful dis
inclination. When It becomes an Im
possibility, it may occur to the Facul
ties of these Institutions' to consider
whether the surplus energies of young
men ambitious to 'excel cannot be di
rected into other and more productive
channels. Xew York Times.
It is to the credit of Charleston
that the authorities have concluded
that it is not necessary that a prize

order that the city's place upon the
map may be made secure.
What is Dlngleylsm?
T1IK pretense of the gone-daft
protectionists that, in oppos
ing any change of the Dlng
ley schedules, they are fol
lowing in the footsteps of Xelson Ding-
ley or doing honor to his memory, Is
absolutely without foundation in fact,
says the Washington Post.
Equally unjustillable are the sneers
at Dlngleylsm in which some of the
advocates of tariff revision are indulg
ing. If the statesmanship of Xelson Dlng
ley may be gauged by the prosperity
of the country under the tariff which
bears his name, to what American
statesman can be assigned n. higher
place than belongs to him? It 111 be
comes the enemies of pioteetion to
sneer at a system which has belled all
their predictions, and under which re
sults have been accomplished which all
of tliPin declared to be Impossible.
If the discredit of a doctrine is com
plete when the falsity of all the argu
ments or theoiles advanced In its sup
port is demonstuted, was there ever a
colder corpse than the cadaver of free
trade as It lies molderlng beside Its sis
ter heresy, 1C to 1, In the grave where
both of them have been laid since the
Dlngley tariff was Inaugurated?
The gieatest glory of Dingley's wmk
Is that it has been true to the basic
principle of protection. In absolute
fidelity lo the logic of protection the
Dlngley tariff has diminished the need
of protection by reducing the cost of
production. If Xelson Dlngley were
living today he would point to that
fact ns his ull-sufllclent vindication.
Instead of contending for the main
tenance of the rates of duly which he
deemed necessary In 1SU7, he would
show that the effects of those rates had
been such strengthening nnd develop
ment of some of our industries as to
put them beyond the need of further
pioteetion, and such uplifting of other
industries as called for a diminution of
That is the doctrine of protection
that Is Dlngleylsm.
