President Roosevelt's message to
Congress dealing with Congressional
crltljlsra'ot his roference to the Se
cret Service, was received In today's
mall. Extracts gUIng the leading
points made by the President follow:
A careful reading of this messago
will show lhat I said nothing to war
rant the'tatement that "tho major
ity ot the Congressmen were In fear
ot being. Investigated by the secret
service men," or "that Congress as a
whole was actuated by that motive."
I did 'no make, any such statement
In this messago. Moreover, I havo
never miulo any such statement about
C'ongrcssVg a whole, nor, with a feW
Inevitable exceptions, about the mem.
bers ofr Congress, In any message or
article or speech. On the contrary, I
have always not only deprecated but
lgorou8ly resented the practice, ot In
discriminate attack upon Congress,
and Indiscriminate condemnation of
all Congressmen, wise and unwise, fit
and unfit, good and bad alike. Xo
one realizes moro than I the Impor
tance of cooperation between the Ex
ecutive and Congress, and no one
holds the authority and dignity ot the
Congress of tho United States in
higher respect than I do. I have not
the slightest sympathy with the prac
tice ot Judging men, for good or for
111, not on their several merits, but In
a mass, nV members ot one particular
body or One caste. Tojut together
qll men folding or who have held a
particular office, whether ltbo tho
office of .President, or Judge, or Sen
ator, or' Members ot tho House ot
representatives, and to class them
all, without regard to their individ
ual differences, as good or bad, seems
to mo.uttarly .Indefensible; and It Is
equally'indefonslble whether tho good
are confounded with the bad In a
heated and unwarranted champion
ship ot all, or In a heated and unwar
ranted assault upon all. I would net'
ther attack nor defend all executivo
officers In amass, -whether Presidents,
Governors, Cabinet officers, or offi
cials of lowerrank; nor would I at
tack or defend all legislative officers
In a mass Tlfo safety ot free govern,

This'1 filfegalloV'ln tho resolution,
therefore, muspcertalnly bo tlue.to

. . .
Now as to the request 'of tile Con
gress that I give the evidence for my
statement that (he chief argument In
favor ot tho provision was that the
Congressmen did not themselves wish
to bo Investigated by secret service
' The pari of the Congressional Rec
ord to which I have referred above
entirely supports this statement. Two
distinct lines, of argument were fol
lowed In the debate. One concerned
the question whether the law war
ranted the employment of the secret
service In departments other than the
Treoauryand this did not touch the
merits of the service tn the least. The
other line of argument went to the
merits of theervlce, whether law
fully or unlawfully employed, ana
here the chief if not the only argu
ment used was that the service
should be cut down and restricted be
cause Its members had "shadowed"
or Investigated members of Congress
and other officers ot the Government.
It we examine the debate in detail
It appears hat most of what was
urged In favor of the amendment took
the form of the simple statement that
the committee held that there had
Leen a "vlolalon ot law" by tho use
ot the Secret Service for, other pur
poses nan suppressing counterfeiting
tapd opo or two, other matters which
can" 'be disregarded), and that such
language was now to be used as
would effectually prevent all such vl
ofutlon oT law hereafter. Mr. Taw
ney, for Instance, says: "It was for
the purpose, of stopping the use, of
this service In every possible wny by
the departments ot tho Government
that this provision was Inserted";
and Mr. Smith says; "Now, that was
the only way In which any limitation
could bo put upon the activities ot
the Secret- Service." Mr. Fitzgerald
followed In the same vein, and by far
the largest part ot the argument
against, the employment of the Secret
Service was confined to lite statement
that It was ih "violation of law." Of
course such a statement Is not in
any way an argument in favor ot the
Justice of the provision.
Incidentally I may say that In my
Jurigmont there Is ample legal au
thorlty tor tho statement'' that this
appropriation law to which reference
was made Imposes no restrictions
whntever upon the use ot the secret
service men, but relates solely to tlio
expenditure ot tho money appropriat
ed, Mr. Tawnoy in the debate stated
that he had in his possession "a let
ter from tho Secretary of the Treas
ury received a few days ago" in
which tho SecretAry of the Treasury
"hlmsolf ndmlts that tho provisions
under which the appropriation has
been made have been violated year

referred to. It makes no such admis

Rut all of this Is of Insignificant tin
portance compared with the malit; tho
real Issue. This Issuo simply, Does
Congress dcslro that the Government
shall have at Its disposal the most
efficient Instrument for the detection
of criminals and tho prevention and
punishment of crime, or does It not?
The auction of the House last May was
emphatically an action against tho
Interest of Justice and against the In
terest ot law-abiding people, and In
Its effect of benefit only to Jaw
breakers. I am not now dealing with
motives; whatever may havo been the
motive that Induced the action of
which I speak, this was be)ond all
question the effect of that action. Is
tho House now willing to remedy tho

The facts above given show beyond
possibility ot doubt (that what the
Secretary 'of tho Treasury hnd I hnd
both written prior to the enactment
of tho obnoxious provision, and what
I have since" written in my message
to the Congress, state the factB ex
actly as they aro. Tho obnoxious
provision Is of benefit only to the
criminal class. If it had been em
bodied in the lawiat the time-when
I became President all the prosecu
tions above mentioned, and many oth
ers ot the same general type, would
either not have been undertaken or
would have been undertaken with tho
Government at a great disadvantage;
and many, and probably most, of the
chief offenders would lmvcgono scot-

To use the Secret Service In the In
vestigation of purely private or po'
lltlcal matters would bo a gross
abuse. Rut there has been no slnglo
Instance of such abuse during my
term as President.
In conclusion, I most earnestly
ask, In the name of good government
and decent administration, In tho
name of honesty and for tho purpose
of bringing to Justice violators ot the
Federal laws wherever they may be
found, whether In public or private
life, that the action taken by the
House last year be reversed.
