MR. TAFT'S LETTER
His Position Regarding Politics
in New York Unchanged.
President Taft letter to County Presi
dent Griscom, stating Mi position regard
ing th" political situation In New York
State, which he said yesterday correctly
represented his attitude then and now, and
upon which he stands without change, was
published in The Tribune«of August 25, as
Beverly. Mis?.. August M, 1910.
My Dear Mr. Griscom: As you know from
your telephone conversations with my of
fice. I have steadily refused to admit the
propriety or necessity of the President's
replying to newspaper statements which
are not based on any act or authorized
word of his and have no sponsor. I am
entirely willing, however, to reply categor
ically to your telegram of August IS. which
has just arrived, and which is as follows*.
"I am Informed and believe that several
members of the New York Republican State
Committee who voted lor Vice-President
Sherman over ex-Pros'.dent Roo&evelt as
nominee for temporary chairman of state
convention were influenced by statements
thai the Vice-President's name was pre
sented to defeat Colonel Roosevelt in ac
cordance with your wish. A member of the
state committee declared to me before the
meeting that Mr. Sherman's candidacy had
"■'ii arranged with you by telephone the
previous das Efforts have been made to
create an (— lull that you favor a par
ticular candidate for election as state chair
'I want yon to know that tlie injection
of th*> nan* r.t a high member of your ad
ministration into a factional conflict has
produced a most ccmplicat^d situation, and
the absence of any authoritative informa
tion »>.« to your attitude is seriously mis
leading many Republicans and impairing a
movement for progressive party leadership
aii«l dean government In this stale. I know
you desire us to have a fair field, and hope
that this ma .• be made cl^ax to the public."
The suggestion that I have ever ex
pressed a wish to defeat Mr. Roosevelt for
the. temporary enairmanship of the con
vention or have ever taken the slightest
step Is de ie is wholly untrue. I never
heard Mr. Shermans name suggested as
temporary chairman of the state conven
tion until I saw in th« newspapers of
Ausrust 16 that he had been selected at th"
meeting of th- committee. When you
celled at my house Saturday evening. Au
gust 13. you told me that Mr. Roosevelt
intended to go to the convention as a
delegate, and you suggested Incidentally
his being made temporary chairman— a
suggestion in which I acquiesced. It did
not occur «o me that any one would op
j»ose it. This was the Bret time the sub
ject of the temporary chairmanship was
mentioned to me by any one. You did not
ask me to take any action whatever with
respect to it. After a full discussion of th»
Wtii York State situation. I drafted in
your pineen<» the following telegram and
sent ii to Mr. Sherman:
"Beverly. Mass.. August 14. 1910.
"Honorable .Tames S. Sherman. Vice-Pres
ident, Uttca. N. Y.
"Please say to Ward and Woodruff that
I have had a long conference with Gris
com. He confirms my judgment already
expressed to you that the whole situation
in New York may be saved without hu
miliation to any one and with victory for
th^ party by a full conference with Mr.
Roosevelt and reasonable concessions with
reference to platform and candidates.
"The thing of all others that ought to
be avoided is a controversy in th« con
vention. 1 am told by Mr. Orieeom that
a conference with Mr. Roosevelt
night conveniently be had and would be
welcomed by lim before the state commit
tee meets on Tuesday. Hope you will i>«»
ablr m report satisfactory solution when
you come on Wednesday.
"WILLIAM 11. TAFT."
On •-• afternoon of Monday, August 15,
Mr. Sherman telephoned me. from New
York, and for the first time apprised me of
' the faot that there was a proposal to op
pose Mr. Roosevelt for the temporary
lanship. and that with Mr. Roots

conference •with Mr. Sherman I told him
that 1 deplored the result of the meeting of

IE TALK WITH TAR
Rooseveit Says Interview in New
Haven Was Pleasant.
ROUGH TRIP ACROSS SOUND
Ex-President Declares Governor
ship Cannot Be Forced on
Him at Saratoga.
( Hy T-l'-prarh to The Tribune.]
Oyster Bay. Sept. 19.— Theodore Roose
velt returned to Oyster Bay to-night well
pleased with the result of his conference
with President Taft at New Haven. Ho
paid his talk with the President In re
gard to the New York State situation was
entirely j satisfactory- While he would
not repeat any part of the conversation
he said that they talked over the national
situation also. Candidates for Governor
of New York were not discussed between
the President and Mr. Roosevelt.
The ex-President said there would be no
compromise in the tight against the "old
guard" at the Saratoga convention. It
would be a straight fight for decency in
politics as against the bosses, ho paid.
Mr. Roosevelt's name win be placed he
fore the convention for the temporary
chairmanship, and ne and the Progressive
loaders are sanguine of victory. Colonel
Roosevelt again paid emphatically that he
would, not accept the nomination for Gov
ernor under any condition which might
arise at the Republican State convention.
He declared that the governorship couM
not be forced upon him.
He had no comment to make on the pos
sibilities of an indorsement of President
Taft for renomlnation in 1912 by the Sara
toga convention. Neither would he com
ment upon how far the convention might
go In indorsing the T.ift administration.
Colonel Roosevelt arrived here on the 7:14
train from New York. His face was
wreathed in smile? and he was in remarka
bly buoyant spirits when the newspaper
men met him at the station. He started
right In to talk about the subject that was
iil'pernicpt in the minds of all of them.
Pleasant Interview, He Says.
"I had & very pleasant Interview with
Prrsid'-nt Taft," he s=ud, "and an entirely
satisfactory talk on the New York situa
Pressed for details of the interview, he
paw it was not for him to give them. He
added, however, that the national situation
also was discussed.
When asked about the status of the "war
on 1 lie bosses" and the Progressives" plans
for overturning the "old guard" at the
Saratoga convention, be clenched his fists
and replied with earnestness:
"T!i will be no compromise, in any
way. This is a fight for decency in politics
as against the bosses."
"At Philadelphia In 19«<>. Colonel Roose
velt, you stated that under no circumstance
would you accept the nomination for Vice-
President. yet UM convention nominated
you and you arc*»pt»»el. Suppose the same
situation should arise at Saratoga?"
Mr. Roosevelt appeared to bo anxious for
a chance to answer that question, »nd he
snapped back a. reply almost before it was
"But they i-ann«t force the governorship
or, n*e at Saiatoeja," be said. "T have re
peatefly told my Menda that if the con
tention stamj^eded in my favor I would d°
dfaM the nomination.**
Th" ex- President was asked what he
meant by the statement In his speech at
Syracuse that Cornelius v. Collins, State
Superintendent of Prisons, would be his
right hand man at Saratoga. He explained
that he wanted a man from the central part
of the state who knew the situation and
was able to size up the strength in that dis
trict, not only of the Progerssives, but also
of their opponents. He strongly Intimated
that William Barnes, Jr., of Albany, the
leader of the "old guard" forces, had given
out misleading estimates by placing some
of the Barnes delegates In various counties
in the Roosevelt column »so as to deceive
the Progressives as to their real strength.
Mr. Roosevelt intimated that t"h« Progres
sives were not asleep on that score, and
were not being deceived.
Ex- President Gets a Scare.
Mr. Roosevelt slippy away from Oyster
Bay this morning, without announcing: his
destination. He started for Black Rock
Harbor, expecting to join Mr. Griscom
there. He travelled in the Tarpon, a speed
boat, belonging to Earl Dodge, who was
Mr- Griscom's secretary in Rome. The Tar
pon Is capable of twenty-seven miles an
hour. It is very light and not calculated for
rough weather, such as was encountered.
The Sound was so rough, indeed, that the
Tarpon pounded badly and there was sonn
danger of the boat smashing. Mr. Roose
velt was rather alarmed— the first time on
record, be it noted. He finally sought some
comfort from the captain by asking him
what the outlook was. The sturdy mariner
—all captains are sturdy mariners— squinted
his weather eye at the horizon and opined:
"Well, if we're lucky we may get there."
But they did not get "there," if by
"there" was meant Black Rock, the
weather forcing them instead to put in at
Mr. Griscom, who was to meet them at
Black Rock, was communicated with, ani
he met them at Bridgeport. The thro* mo
tored from Bridgeport to New Haven.
Colonel Roosevelt was recognized at the
Bridgeport station while. Mr. Dodge was

Captain James B. Ford, of the New York
Yacht Club, who came in here to-night with
the yacht Katrina. told of seeing the
motorboat Tarpon, with Colonel Roosevelt
aboard, laboring heavily in the rough sea
running- in the Sound this morning. The
captain and his party became alarmed at
the struggle the little boat was making
against the high seas. They recognized
Colonel Roosevelt through the glasses, he
said. Th» ex-President was arguing ami
gesticulating forcefully with the engineer
on the motorboat. evidently trying to per
suade him" to go ahead and not turn back
in the face of the storm. Captain Ford said.
The Katrina hove to and followed the
motor boat until the latter had got through
the roughest part of the Bound and was
well on her way toward the Connecticut
shore. Colonel Roosevelt will go to his
New York office to-morrow, and expects to
confer with Progressive leaders from va
rious parts of the state.
