President llooscvolt's criticism of the

The Now York Worhl's financial

"Chicago is already feeling the (lo

"The crop reports, while showing

In London I found business con
ditions causing geneial complaint.
The London business men are not
flush. So the depression Is one ot tho
realities that Is going nround tho
world. Wlilje In London I was asked
what was the matter with America,
and I responded Hint I thought every
thing was nil right, but when I got
to New York I found the reason for
their asking, ltuslness through the
winter has been very dull. While 1
wns there, n general advance took
place on tho stock market nnd the
brokers were wild, predicting that
the turn had finally come nnd busi
ness would be booming again, but
tho market dropped back.
Why, the .Wall Strcot brokers
have not been paying expenses for
months. I know ono man who said
his expenses had been $50,000 n
month and slnco the panic ho had not
dono business enough to meet them

means they hno put up linger and
more oxpenslve buildings.
"What about the Presidential elec
tion?" "Well, I tell you, I can scttlo that
question to my own satisfaction by
flipping n coin. From what I can ob

on peibonnllty. If nu think Mr. Tuft

Eeems to mo that the Republicans
started out with tho anticipation of
a sure thing and the Democrats de
cided that they hnd n forlorn hope,
anyway. Now It seems that tho Re
publicans nie not so sure, and tho
Democrats nro lenlly beginning to bo
llevo that they have a chance to win.
"I am satisfied that tho whole thing
will bo decided in the last thirty days
pievlous to tho election. It Is Impos
sible to get any definite lino on the
situation at tho present time.
"Yes, I am here for business. I am

It comes to business I want the privi
lege ot having my own opinions as to
