Abuse of Patronage Alleged.

Ttft think ihat the people have for
gotten the. lettir hi? s.vretary sent oil
ts to restoring tt the Insurgent Senat ?r
the patronage of Which he had deprive
th*m'.' Having all thttt fa? ts in View, i
Is simply astounding that Mr. Taf
should venture the assertion that he ha
not used Ihe fed'^ral ?patronage to de
"Mr. Taft state! that I advised him t
have a meeting with Canr.on. I sdvtse
him to meet every one. to consult wit'
every one. to tr\ to pet on with ever
one But no left emphatically I advis??
him to follow my example, to consul
freely v. it h all tht politicians, and t
try*to get on vvith them, hut wnere th
poliiicians split off from the people, the;
to stand wtih the people and not wit
the politicians, and It is precisely thi
that he failed to do.
"It Is a most curious thing that Ifl
Taft should actually plitteitt me for n?i
having assailed 1dm about the Payn
tariff law As a matter of fact, 1 hav
eagerly endeavored to praise Mr. Taf
wherever I possibly could, and what
possible I have merely kept sil?ne
. where I disagreed. As he now Insist
that T should break ?silence about th
tariff law, I Will nay that 1 held hin
?ulpsbly responsible for having led th
people to brlieve that he favored a sub
stantlnl downward revision and tha
fc* would work actively for it, and fo
th'n hsving sat supinely by and allowei
his new friends, under the lead o
Motera, AMHcll and Cannon, to produc
t bill which made hltn convict htmsel
of lnsin?eriTv when he signed it.
"When Mr. Taft speaks ?>f the trusts h
Is guilty of deliberate misstntement of I
great, a vital fa< t. He says l propos
to sholish the anti-trust law. I neve
msde any su? h proposal, and this h

guilty of a ? rooked deal"
