Did Not Discuss Prose?
cution of Trust.

Meetings of the Official
Family of the For
TAFT OUT OF THE COUNTRY
He Shows Through Commissioner Smith
That He Wa* in the Philippines
When the Matter Was Decided
?Instructed Wickersbam to
Bring Suit After Efforts
for Agreement Failed.
fFrom Th? Tribun? Bureau 1
Washington, April 2S.-In mild termi
President Taft, before leaving for the
political battleground In Massachusetts
t^-day declared that Mr. Roosevelt'?
memory was at fault when he declare*
that President Taft, as a member of the
Roosevelt Cabinet, approved of holding
up the Harvester trust prosecution.
The statement also disclose? the faof,
that the nesrottatlons relative to the vol?
untary' dissolution of the Harvester tni??S
have failed, and that th" Attorney ?Jen
eral was directed by the President <>n
April 24 to bring stilt.
President Taft in his statement say?
that he does not remember that the Har?
vester trust was ever dismissed at the
Roosevelt ?""ablnet meeting. In 'his 1.??
Is supported by Senator Root, then Sec?
retary of State, and Secretary VVllso.i.
The President also presents dates be?
tween which the Harveater trust must
have been discussed by the Cabinet, If
discussed at all, and ?ays that during
that period he was out of thi countrj,
and could not, therefore, have niad?.i .i
motion that no suit be prosecuted until
after an Investigation by the Bureau of
President Taft in his statement also
explains frankly the course he has fol?
lowed In the Harvester:' trust matter,
which has be<?n the subject of < bar?.*??
by the Roosevelt supporter?'.
President Tsft's Statement.
President Tafte statement follows.
The following personal statement ef
the President was issued fr>m the WHit?
House this evening
Mr. Roosevelt in his speech at -Worces?
ter, as reported by the public prrss. re?
ferring to the Harvester trust suit, said:
A? a matter of fact. Mr Taft ?ra*
a membe? of my Cal inet when this
identical case was fully discussed
before the Cabinet, and he cordially
approved the action taken: and. In?
deed, as a matter of fact, my mem?
ory is that he himaelf made the
motion that then should be no
prosecution of the Harvester trust
pending the Investigation into the
trust by the Bureau of ? "orpor.i'lons.
Mr. Roosevelt's memory is vsry much
st fault. I am authorized to say by Mr.
Root and Secretary Wilson, both cf
whom were members of the Cabinet st
that time, that they have no recollec?
tion whatever of ever hearing tha prose?
cution of th? Harvester matter dia
cuaaed in ths Cabinet. And Mr. Root
is very certain thst he never saw o**
heard of Herbert Knox Smith's lette**
i to Mr. Roosevelt under date o( Sen
' tember 21. 1907, on the subject.
I am ab!s to ?ay the same thing. So
I far ss my recollection goes. I neve**
hesrd the Harveater trust matte, men?
tioned in any Cabinet meetina that I
attended, and I cannot be mistaken in
I the statement that I ntver saw or knew
: of Herbert Knox Smith'? letter of
J September 21 to the President until after
| my administration had begun and tha
'tima when th? question of th? p.oseou?
| tion came up in 1910 or 1911, And I
ravtr saw or read the letter until about
two months ago.
This C'.rre?ponden.-e shows thai th?
subject matter of thn proescutlon of the
International Harvester Company a?na
I before Pr?vient Roosevelt ..>- ? neust
il. 1M7, which is the date of his letter
t,> Attorn.?y Oeneral Bonaparte that
.Mr. Herbert Knox Smiths lettei dis?
cussing the question an?! advising
aaralnal suit wa? dated ?aptamber :'.
19?">T. and that Mr. Smith's 1"
forwarded by direction of Preside:.'
Roosevelt, under ?late of September IK
to the Attorne?. General, with direct!.?
to the Attorn?.'. ?Jouerai to bring the
letter to th" President that ?reek to talk
over the matter
The ofticlal record? show tliat Presi?
dent Roos.'Velt left Washington In .lune.
1907, for -?yster May. and returned fr??m
Oyster Bay t<. Washington on Septem?
ber ??: that on September -'i? be lefr
Uashinerton for a trip down the Missis?
sippi Rlv.-r, returning t.? Washington
on October 13. lf>07. ami that bs re?
mained to XVnshlpafon front (hat
ft ne ?.'i.
Was Not in Washington.
The official record? of the W?r De?
partment show thst I Isft Wsshinotnn in
June of the same year and want to Mur
rsv Bs?/. Csnsda; that I remained ther?
until August, when I visited Oyster B.?- .
on August 13, and then wsnt to Wssh
ington on the 14th, snd left Wsahinqtoti
on August 18 for a Western trio throuoh
Pklahom?, Missouri, the Yellowstone
Psrk. Oregon and Washington, reachina
Seattle on September ft. and sailiivi
from Seatt'S for the Philippines on Sep
tember 13. I did not retorn la tha United
States until December 20. 19 7.
I have a letter from Herbert Knot
Smith, Commissioner of th?? Pureau of
Corporatlcns. written at my request. In
which he uses the folloaring language:
"On November 7. 1907, which date I
fix from my personal <llnr\. I telephoned
Mr. Perkins, at the President's order.
that the President took the view that
'he bureau's Investigation should conto
before the suit.''
This indicstes with certainty ths time
when the matter was decided, snd shows
that if the matter did com? b??3i* tha
Cabinet at ?II It must have been ?ft?r
September 24 and on or before Novsm
bsr 7, 1907, s period whsn I wss out of
ths country and could not havs been
present, and certainly could not havs
msds s motion or suggestion in ths Cab?
inet that no suit bs prosecuted until af?
tsr ths investigation.
Mr. Roosevelt asks why suit has not
been brought In this administration
against the Harvester trust. A retn.r?
mode to ?ne by th* Attorney General
shows that shortly after th* decision by
