led up thereto, than he furnished 'for

reports about me, jbased oh a note
that I had given to one IboI.
"This note, bo I was Informed yes
terday by Isoi, who came to mo at
his own instance, was obtained by
this official from Isol's wife. He vis

cd. It Is due the people who elected
me, and the public In general, that
they know tho full facts.
"Toward the end of April I was in
financial difficulties, hnvlng somo
notes to meet which I did not see my
way clear to meet. I went to I). F.
Dillingham and asked him it he could
let me have )2S0 for a short time. Ho
said he was not able to do bo, but
would try to raise the .money from
his friends, but I told him that I did
not wish him to go begging for me.
I also went twlco to sco W. R. Castle,
but I billed to nnd him in, but D. L.
Wlthlngton saw me on both theso
occasions. However, I did not speak
to li I in about my errand.
"Late one afternoon ns I was sit
ting here In my office worrying over
the matter, Special Officer TownBend
passed my door, aud I asked him If
he knew where I could borrow $100
for n short time. He said that ho
might get It, and the next day ho
brought tho money and I made out a
note for the. amount, which was later
on paid back by me. The very fact
that I made a note will show (hat
there was nothing dishonest ,and.iio
graft about tho affair. As a matter
of fact, at the time I did not realise
that the Isoi by whom the money was
advanced was tho man who has leas
ed property at Iwllel.
"Later on there began to circulate
rumors about the matter, and I wus
approached by several leading Demo
crats, to whom I told the full circum
stances ,ot the case. Taylor asked
Townsend about tho matter, but
Townscnd did not tell him tho facts,
but told mo that Taylor had' asked
him. I then called Taylor and told
him about the entiro transaction, and
later on, when Taylor resigned, he
told me, In answer to my quostton,
that he did so because he had intend
ed to do so for some time, and that
he was not actuated by any belief
that I had accepted graft.
"Now all I ask for Is fair treatment
In this matter. I have been absolute
ly honest, and havo fulfilled the pro
mises I made, to the people who elect
ed me. I am willing to accept fair
criticism of my nets, but when peoplo
made charges about graft they should
have the courage to bring open
charges Instead of trying to smirch
my reputation with Innuendoes."
