Atlanta (On.), March t. The
following ' letter from President
Roosevelt to the editor of the Con
stitution in reply to a request for
an expression concerning the recent
letter from Harry Stillwell Edwards
of M con, in which Edwards made
a statement of the President's posi
tion in the matter of Federal ap
pointments in the South, holding
that the President had been mis
understood. President Roosevelt
"WHITE HOUSE, Washington,
D. C, February 24, 1903. Hon.
Clark Howell, Editor of the Con-1
stitution, Atlanta, Gn. Dear Mr.
Howell: As to Federal appoint
ments in the South. Frankly, it
seems to rac that appointments
speak for themselves and that my
policy is self-explanatory. So far
from ieeling that they need the
slightest apology of justification,
my position is that on the strength
of what I have done I have the
right to claim the support of all
good citizens who wish not only a
high standard of federal service,
but fair and equitable dealing to the
South as well as to the North and a
policy of consistent justice and good
will toward all men.
, "In making appointments I have
sought to consider the feeling of the
people of each locality so far as I
could consistently do so without
sacrificing principle. The prime
tests I have appl.ed have been those
of character, fitness and ability, and
when I have been dissatisfied with
what has been offered within my
own party lines I have without
hesitation gone to the opposite
party, and youare, of course, aware
that I have repeatedly done this in
your own state of Georgia. I, cer
tainly will not treat mere color as a
permanent bar to holding office any
more than I could treat creed or
birthplace always provided that
in other respects the applicant or in
cumbent is a worthy and well-
behaved American citizen. Just
as little will I treatit as conferring
a right to hold office. I have scant
sympathy with the man of mere
theory who refuses to face facts, but
do you not think that in the long
run it is safer for everybody if we
act en the motto 'AH men up,' rath
er than on that of 'Some men
"I ask you to judge not by what
I say, but what, during the last
seventeen months, I have actually
done. In your own State of Geor
gia you are competent to judge
from your own experience. In the
great bulk of the cases I have reap
pointed President McKinley's ap
pointees. The changes I have
made were, as I think you will
agree, changes for the better aud
not for the worse. It happens I
have appointed a white man to suc
ceed a colored man as Postmaster
at Athens and Surveyor at Atlanta.
In South Carolina I have similarly
appointed a white postmaster to
succeed a colored postmaster. Again
in South Carolina I have nominat
ed a colored man to fill a vacancy
in the position of Collector of the
port of Charleston, just as in Geor
gia I have reappointed a colored
man who is now serving as Col
lector of the port of Savannah.
Both are fit men. Why the ap
pointment of one should cause any
more excitement than the appoint
ment of the other I am wholly at a
loss to imagine. I need hardly say
that to connect cither of these ap
pointments, or any or all of my an
1 pointments, or my actions in up
holding the law at Iudiauola, with
such questions as 'social equality'
and 'negro domination' is as absurd
as to connect them with the nebular
hypothesis or the theory of atoms.
"I have consulted freely with
your own Senators and Congress
men as to the character and ca
pacity of any appointees in Georgia
concerning whom there was ques
tion. My party advisers in the
State have been Major Hanson of
Macon, Walter Johnson of Atlanta
both of them ex-Confederate sol
diers aud Harry Stillwell Edwards
of Macon. I believe you will agree
with me that in no state would it
be possible to find gentlemen abler
and more upright or better qualified
to fill the positions they have filled
with reference to inc. In every in
stance where these gentlemen have
united in making a recommenda
tion, I have been able to follow
their advice. Am 1 not right in
saying that the Federal office-holders
whom I have appointed through
out your States, as a body, are men
and women of high order of effici
ency and integrity? If you know
of any Federal office-holder in
Georgia of whom this is not true,
pray let me know at once. I will
welcome testimony from you or
from any other reputable citizen
which will tend to show that a
given public officer is unworthy;
and, most emphatically short Will
be the shrift of any one whose lack
of worth is proven. Incidentally,
I may mention that a large percent
age of the incumbents of Federal
offices in Georgia tinder me arc, as
I understand it, of your own politi
cal faith. But they are supported
by me in every way as long as they
continue to render good and faith
ful service to the public.
"This is true of your own State,
and by applying to Thomas Nelson
Page of Virginia, to General Basil
Duke ot Kentucky, to George
Crawford of Tennessee, to John
Mcltheny of Louisiana, to Judge
Jones of Alabama and Edgar S.
Wilson of Mississippi, all of them
Democrats and all of them men of
the highest standing in the respec
tive communities, you will find
that what I have done in Georgia
stands not as the exception but as
the rule for what I have done
throughout the South. I have
good reason to believe that my ap
pointees in the different states
mentioned, aud as the sura of the
parts is the whole, necessarily in
the South at large, represent not
merely a improvement upon those
whose places they took, but upon the
whole a higher standard of Federal
service than has hitherto been at
tained in the communities in ques
tion. I may add that the propor
tion of colored men among these
new appointees is only about one
in a hundred. But in view of all
these facts I have been surprised
and somewhat pained at what seems
to me the incomprehensible outcry
iu the South about my actions an
outcry apparently started in New
York for reasons wholly unconnect
ed with the question nominally at
issue. I am concerned at the atti
tude thus taken by so many of the
Southern people, but I am not in
the least angry; and still less will
this attitude have the effect of
making me swerve one hair's
breadth to one side or the other
from the course I have marked
out the course I have consistently
followed in the past and shall con
sistently follow in the future. With
regards, sincerely yours,

Ciiamiiuklain's Cough Rnmicdy
is intended especially for coughs,
colds, whooping cough and influ
enza. It has become famous for
its cures of these diseases over a
large part of the civilized world.
The most flattering testimonials
have been received giving accounts
of its good works; of the aggravat-'
ing and persistent coughs it has
cured; of severe colds that have
yielded promptly to its soothing
effects, and of the dangerous attacks
of croup it has cured, often saving
the life of the child. The extensive
use of it for whooping cough has
shown that it robs that disease of
all dangerous results. It is es
pecially prized by mothers because
it contains uot)iiug injurious; and
there is not the least danger iu giv
ing it, even to babies. It always
cures and cures quickly. The Hilo
Drug Store sells it.
