Duluth. Minn., Oct. 10.?Oovernor Wood
row vTllsun's writlngs on lmmigratlon
were laken up to-nlght by Theodore
Roosevelt, who charged that the Demo?
cratlc candldate had offered explanation*
of hls vlew* of such a character that he
dld net aee how any man could be ex?
pected to belleve them. Colonel Roose?
velt also crltlclsed Oovernor Wllaon for
a statement attrlbuted to hlm, that the
Unlted States Steel Corporatlon was sup?
porting the Progressive ticket.
The ex-Presldent came here to-day from
Mlehljran, stopplng on the way for an
hour at Superfor. He spent most of the
day here. The Auditorlum was thronged
when Colonel Roosevelt arrived there to
nlght, and another hall waa thrown open
to th* crowd. He apoke ln both buildings
and then departed for Oahkosh, Wia.,
where he ia to dellver an address to-mor?
"I eall your attentlon," sald Colonel
Rooaevelt, "to what Mr. Wilson has aald,
compared wlth what he now aaya on the
questlon of lmmigratlon. and especlally
th* lmmigratlon from Eastern and South?
ern Europe." He then read extracta
from a magazlne article written by Gov?
ernor Wilson ln 1889. quoting the writer
aa saylng that the character of the na
tlqri was belng "most deeply affected and
modlfied by the enormoua lmmigratlon
whlch year after year pours Into the
country from Europe" and that "our own
temperat* blood, schooled to s*lf-poeaes
slon and to the meaaured conduct of self
government, ls receiving constant con?
fusion and yearly expertencing a par
tlal corruption of foreign blood."
Hungsrisn Episode Again.
Colonel Roosevelt also sald that ln one
of Oovernor Wllson's booka he apoke of
the comlng of "multitudea of men of the
lowest classes from th* south of Italy,
and men of th* meaner aort out of Hur
gary and Poland. men out of the raaks
where there la nelther sklll, ncr energy,
nor any Inltlatlv* or ir.telllgence."
H* quoted Oovernor Wilson as havlng
written that the Chlnese were "more to
be deslred as workers, if not as citlsens,
than moat of the coarse crew that came
crowding ln every year at the Eaatern
porte," and that "the unllkely fellowa
who came ln at the Eastern port* wore
tolerated because they usurped no place
but the very lowest In the acafle of labor."
The colonel continued:
When aaked to explain this ln March
last. Mr. Wllaon wrote to Mr. Dl Syl
vesto, in part as follows:
"I wss, ln tha pasaage alluded to, only
deplorlng the coming to thls country of
certaln Igwlesa elemente, whlch I had
? upposed all thoughtful allens themselves
deplored. I was thtnktng of the men who
have tlme _nd again threatened to give
to that whole flne body of ltallan*, who
have enrlched American life, a reputa?
tlon whlch they do not deeerva"
In another letter publlshed ln The New
York Trlbune, of March 12. 1?12. Mr. Wll?
aon aaya: "I referred to the class of
laljorers whlch waa brought here under
pauper labor contraete."
1 am reluctantly obliged to aay that lt
Ib quite impoBslble to reconcllc the two
explnnations Mr. Wilson glveB, as I have
stove quoted them. wlth th* faet*
Nulther in hi* magaalne article nor ln
hi- hlstory dld hv make an alluslon to
pauper contract labor, nor dld he make
an allualor. to the lawleaa elemente. He
waa contrastlng lmmigrsnts generally
wlth natlvea and the immlgrants of cer?
taln European countrles with those from
other European countries. And I regret,
for Mr. Wllaon'a own sake, that he ahould
have made auch a defence.
Wilson's Gary Speech Quoted.
Colonel Roo*evelt then quoted Oovernor
Wilson as aaylng at Uary, Ind.. that th*
Bteel Corporatlon was "supporting the
Bull Moose' ticket." saylng that he chal
lenged Oovernor Wllaon to prove his
sUtiment. and that the Oovernor had not
a "partlcle of evldence," but had ex?
plained what l meant waa they are sup?
porting hlm wlth thelr thoughte."
lt ls shcer nonsens*," sald Colonel
Roosevelt. "No human belng would
have dreamed for a moment that Mr.
Wilson was rtf?rrlng only to th*
?thought' of the steel trust."
i olonel Roosevelt quoted a statement
by a Wall Btreet news agency that a
dlrector of the t'nlted States Steel Cor
m ratlon had sald that lf the colonel got
the vote* of two of the twenty-thre*
directors of the corporatlon he would be
lucky. He added:
Mr. Wllson'a statement that the steel
truat men are supporting me, even ln
their "thought," ls slmply not ln accord
w.th tha facts. ana. moreover. It waa not
What he sald and It was not what any
reasonarle man eould have Intcrpreteu
hls speech as meanlng. Mr. Wllaon would
have done far better frankly to have
admitted that he made a atatement whlch
he could not aubatantlate. Inatead of at
temptlng to lustlfy It by asslgnlng to lt a
meanlng whlch lt dld not and could not
posseBa. Mr. Wilson should leam that lt
ls more manly to attack openly and ln
stralghtforward fashlon rather than by
lnnuendo or Indlrectlon. and he should
also learn that when he haa made a
statement whlch he cannot aubatantlate,
lt la more manly to withdraw Jt ln
stralghtforward faahlor. than to try to
explain lt ln such fashlon. Thia ls by no
means the only lnstance where Mr. Wil?
son, when challenged as to some state?
ment he haa made. haa nelther Juatlfled
it nor retracted it but haa attempted to
explain tt away by asaertlng that tt bore
a meanlng utterly dlfferent from the ob

Taft "Truth Tellers" on Colo

and at each a larger number of votera

ty-four hours before. Their enthuslaam
showed that the people of MIchigan havo
repudiated the thlrd term candidate.
At Stlgnaec. Marquette. Houghton and

Taft speakers. At Marquette more than
twenty-flve hundred persons gathered at
the Btatlon to hear them. and 90 per cent
of them were voters. In Houghton to

The meeting at Calumet waa slgnlflcant
ln Its enthusiasm. The Taft speakara
did not mlnce words. Mr. Harlan pointed
out that Roosevelt had denouneed Judge
Parker in 1904 aa a llar because he had
dared to assert that Roosevelt's campaign
was belng flnanced by corporations. He
quoted Senator Hcotfs testimony of yea?
terday before the Senate commlttee as
proving that Rooaevelt waa aware of the
contrlbutlons. Then he demanded to know
if any one ln the audlence had he&rd that
Roosevelt had apologized to Judge Parker
for calllng him a llar.
Mr. Bede called attention to the fact
that In hls whole politlcal career and In
hls personal life no charge had ever been
preferred agalnat the lntegrlty of Preal?

the country untainted and unafraid.
