Taft'a Idea ot Charaater. In my effort te discover the qnal- llles wliich led one to describe Mr. Taft as -tlje highest typo of Christian RCU-" I learn that the candidate himself, within n month, baa deflued Ji:8t what Importance he attached to Christian character In the bulldlne of a successful career. The question bad been put to him to develop his personal views, and writing lu response the Re- pnl'lii-aii candlilate snld: ••Y<nir question sugcestii two ofhora which nni .-;t I>e answered In answering this': Kirst. what Is a Christian character.

I consider a Christian character that of one who holds as his Ideal a i-onipllani-e with the two <H)m- manduients jlvon by Jesas Christ, and who earnestly strives to ilrw up to tliat Ideal. Stvond. I should define a suC' cejjsful career to l «f thak career whieb brinijs more .real happiness to those who happen to be within the oporatioa of the Influence of thwl person whose char.K'tcr Is In qiiesflon./ •• to nnsvjker your !»• qotry, 1 should .say that a (.'hrlstlan character in the bulhlinf; of a succ)-ss< ful car<-«'r Is Its most lHi|f>rtant part.

I AVkat an Old Krtoad Saya. Mr, Aarou .\. Ferris, n protulnent CInclnnall lawyer, who has known Jud«e Taft for thirty years, said: "I have never had iKtaslou to ask Jndpi' T^lt what his creed was In matters rcMKlons. I know tha^. when In t^lncinaail. he has been qulto nfular In attendam-e at Christ Bplsi-opal church, of which members of his family are communicants, and of which I iim a vestryman. I know very well that no one In trouble or distress ever appealed to him without recelvlnn a patUmt hfarinc and prompt and material aid. wlit-n/ln his p<>wer to give It. If a uuin's character is to be gaused by what he does.i_HUd not by mere profession: if leadlnj; a clean and upright life is to he a fuide. and doinx righteous de«^ls is to be counted, then I iam cvntldent that his neighbors and fallow-citizen.-: who have lived with him and knnw him well, without re- jtard to cr.-*^!!, lolor or party as,socl.i- tloB. would say that Taft has llvol and aitcd In ivtry station as a Christian centleiiiai!."
