Manchester. N. H.. April IS. -in s reply
t?-- s recent statement attributed to Pres?
ident Taft, ThtMMlore Rooaevall polnt?sdly
criticis?-?! his successor in office to-night.
?peaking hi Meehatilcs' Hall her?, the
colonel repeated his assertion th.-it the
Prealdenl favored government of the
piap?a by a "reprtiaentativt port of the
"Mr. Taft, I've no doubt, meant well."
Colonel Rooaevell continue "but in
practiN his own nctions have shown
who that governing part would he. He
has intrusted his fate now to a certain
constituent portion of that representa?
tive part. They are Senator Gallinger,
Fena'i'r Crane, Senator Aldrlch, Mr. (
Barn?*..??, cruelly known as 'Boas I-arn?s';
Mr. <<-?x, of Ohio, and others like them.
"I once said that I believed In both

ing upon my remarks, said:
" When the demagogue nmunis the

'1 want to point ?ut this fact. My
statement was n??t original. It was a
quotation from Abraham Lalncoln. When

called a ?iemsRogue f??r quoting Lincoln.
"The Pre?i?l?nt then a?ks what Lin?

In explaining what he meant i'o]onel
?Roosevelt referred to several instances
in which, he said. 1 he courts had ren?
de? ?d decisions contrary to the interest.?
f.f ?he people, and he declared that the
courts had overturned laws which put
the man above the dollar.
"I've given the answer lhat would have
hern given by the demagogue <m th*
pint form-lhat was Lincoln." s-iid the
colonel, "and I've given the answer in
my own ?ase And. if I may be per?
mitted to aruise. 1 would suggest that
the Prealdenl siudy his Lincoln before
commenting on me next time."
President Tafts remarks, to which
Colonel Rooaevall referred, were ina?le
in his ??peeeh at the Lincoln l>ay dinner

"It has i?? ' n said, and it is a common
platform expresi?n, that it is well to

Private property was not established in

(?e.vernor Wilson said that Anierica had
'swung out of her onetime Isolation an?l

to te the simple, homogeneous, rural na?

affairs were shot through with emotion in?1
the paaslon that ?ame with strength and
growth and self-conliden? e. Hut, he said,
had Jefferson Heed In our time he would
have acted upon the facts a.? they were.
Governor Wilson went on:
We are ??instantly quoting Jefferson's
fundamental thought; it was that no policy
could last whose foundation is narrow,
hased unon the privileges and authority of
a few, tmt i hat it? foundations must be as
bread ss th.- Interests of aU the men and
families and neighborhoods that live under

As leganl?* the real Influences that con?

first ??f all: Are they determined' by the

Would have found that they were not! that,
on the contrary, our government as it has
developed has supplied secret Influencies"
with a hiinilr???! diverts and amhiishes; that
the opinion of the nation makes little noise
in tin- committee rooms ?if legislatures:
thai it is certain large special Interests and
not the people who maintain the lobby;
that the argument of the lobby Is often?
times louder anil more potent than the ar- J
gument of the hustings an?l tin- floor of the
representative body. H*> would have found, ]
moreover, that until very recent yearn opin?

at all, in most seasons, to the privat? COO'
ferences in whiih candidates for office ware
chosen, candidates for both administrative
and legislative office, and that In the prlVStl
conferences where it was determined vviio
should he nominated and, therefore, of

ruled In th<- legislativ?- hody. That money,
the money that kepi the whole organise?

wished to determine In th'elr own private.

What would Jefferson say?" repeated!
In practically the same word-? the leading
ld>-ns or a speech made by himself on
March M al the AMIne <'i<ih, introducing'
again, toward the end of his speeoh, his
advocacy of the abolition of holding *om
panies aa the rool <<f trusts.
The rei .-ut interpretation by courts ?f the ?
words "liberty" and "proptsrty," attribut?

SIDLE ME FOUND
Continued from "!r?t pase.
Kleischnian made one wild rush as she
saw her baby, laughing and gurgling in
her uncle's arms.
"My baby!" she exclaimed, seizing tha
child and clasping it to her breast,
showering kisses on its neck and head.
Wrapping a shawl she brought with
her around the hahy. she got into a t..\i
?ah, paying no attention to the kid?
napper, forgetting her in her joy, and,
with as many of her relatives as could
get in with her, was driven home.
Then Captnin W'erzansk. questioned
the girl, and she told him four different
stories. She said she hud spent the
nights with an aunt In The Bronx,
"somewhere near l?43d street," an?! the
days in moving picture shows. Thou
she .?aid she had walked the streets con?
tinually, begging money now and thou
for food for herself and milk for th i
child. Next she said she had hcen with
her mother in East New York, and a
moment Inter denied it
She ?paid that after she took the child
she walked into Central park to look at
the I.OWSTS, "I love flowers and babies'"
.he Interpolated. "But please take me
home to my mother. I didn't hurt the
hahy. Pleas?" take me home!"
Continuing v. Ith her story, on being
prompted by the police, she ?aid that
after leaving Central Park she took a
Ifadlson avenue car down to 14th street
and there t?i?.k a crosstown ? ar, getting
off at Delancey street.
Went to Gouverneur Hospital.
This part of her story Is ?orre.borated

next went to f ion vernein- Hospital "to

She was known there, having visited
it almost weekly since she was operated
on there for cancer of th" stomach a
lev. yean ngii. In fact, six operations
in all have been "performed on her, iind
