Gives Facts Regarding- Private Letter
of Roosevelt Upon "Which Texan
Based His Speech.
QUINCY, 111., Oct. 21. Henry Cabot
Lodge tonight replied to the opeech of
Senator Culberson of Texas In regard to
a private letter written by President
Roooovelt to Albert Shaw about Fana
mtu He said:
"Nothing could show the desperate
and helpless condition of the Democratic
campaign more strongly than the publi
cation under misleading headlines of
the President's letter to Dr. Albert
Shaw, which was read at a public meet
ing In New York last night by Sena
tor Culberson of Texas. The letter
demonstrates, not that the President
was guilty of complicity In the Panama
revolution, but that he had absolutely
refused to do anything which could by
anj' possibility be taken as encourage
ment to the projects of revolution.
Letter An Old One.
"The letter, a prlvato one, was writ
ten October 10, 1903. The revolution
occurred November 2, and the letter,
written long before the revolution, in
all the fullness of private confidence,
demonstrates that the President, no
matter what his private wishes were,
could not and did not take tiny part
whatever in fomenting or encouraging
the Insurrection. The effort Is made to
give the Impression that this letter le
something new, Just dragged from dark
recesses to throw light on a shadowy
transaction. What are the facts?
Hero Are the Facts.
"Just after the revolution of Novem
ber 2 and 3 the opposition In the Senate
charged that tho administration was
guilty of fomenting and encouraging the
revolution. Thereupon the President di
rected that this letter be given to the
press and published. In order to show,
as it does show, that he had carefully
and scrupulously refrained from fo
menting Insurrection, and the letter wa3
accordingly given out and published
Just a year ago.
"Senator Culberson says that from tho
correspondence on the Panama matters
sent to the Senate this letter was 'sig
nificantly withheld.' Mr. Culberson
knows as well as I that the Senate has
never asked or could ask for a private
letter of the President, and that no
President has ever sent or will send Into
the Senate copies of his prlvato letters,
and this letter was private, personal
and unofficial. Moreover, the letter was
not' withheld, either, from publicity.
Nothing1 to Conceal.
"Two months or more after the revo
lution, and when the debate upon tho
Panama treaty was going on In the Sen
nte an officer of the Senate told me that
the Democratic Senators were- search
ing for a letter which thoy understood
had been written to Dr Shaw, which
had appeared somewhere and which
they understood convicted the President
of complicity in fomenting the revolu
tion. I replied that I knew the letter
Gavo Letter to Gorman.
"I went to the White House, got a
copy of this letter to Dr. Shaw, and
with full permission took It to tho Sen
ale and gavo It to Senator Gorman.
A day or two after Senator Gorman
asked me If I had any objection to his
giving It to Senator Culberson. I rsald
not the least; that the letter had been
published and they could do what they
liked with It. The Panama treaty went
to a vote with that letter to Dr. Shaw
In the possession of Democratic Senators."

Delivers First Speech
Former President Delivers
Address in Carnegie Hall,
Declares He Had No Apology to Make
for Part He Played in
NEW YORK, Oct 21. Attracted by
tho nrecenco of Grover Clovcland, thou
sands of people struggled to got an on
tranco to Carnegio hall tonight, whero
tho formor President of tho United
States mado his first and only speech of
tho campaign. John G. Carllslo, Secre
tary of the Treasury under Mr. Clove
land, waB also a speakor, and shared
with Mr. Cleveland tho great burst of en
thusiasm at tho mooting,
Long beforo tho doora of tho hall were
oponed crowds surged around tho out
side of tho building and within ten min
utes after tho doors had been thrown
wldo corridors nnd alslca held their
scores. Several hundred wero unablo to
gain entrance. The big Domocratlc rally
was under tho auspices of tho Business
Men's Pai-ker and Davis association.
Mr. Cleveland arrlvod at tho hall short
ly after 8 o'clock, and Immediately upon
his entranco encoring burst forth, tho
demonstration lasting seven minutes. It
died out and began again with renewed
vigor. "With Mr. Clcvoland when he en
tored tho hall woro Mr. Robb and Isldor
Strauss When Mr. Clovcland saw that
Chairman J. Hampden Robb'B efforts
wero fruitless In quieting tho demonstra
tion, ho aroso and held up his hand for
silence, but tho people could not be
quieted for two (till minutes afterward.
Tho former President was mado chair
man of tho meeting and, accepting the
chair, ho said In part:
ITo Apology to Make.
"Thero ore nt least two reasons why I
am gratified by tho opportunity to parti
cipate In this occasion. It permits me
to breatho tho pleasant atmosphoro of
resolute and harmonious Democracy,
and, In addition It allows mo to meet faco
to faco In such an atmosphere those who
largely represent tho business Interests
of the city of Now York and who, be
sides, aro patriotic enough to recognize
tho obligation they owe to their country
as well as to their business.
"It would bo strange lf I did not recall
at this moment with deep sensibility tho
days In tho past and tho previous sup
port of tho business mon of New York,
and lf I did not remember theso sur
roundings tho sustaining power of their
approval and confidence amid tho per
plexing labors of high official duty. You
will not, I know, accuse me of solf-con-colt
lf I assume that I am with thoso to
night who demand of mo no explanation
or apology for tho manner in which I
havo served either my party or tho busi
ness intorcsts of my country, and who
frill neither discredit nor distrust me
when I avow my intenso anxiety for the
success due in tho pending political cam
paign of tho principles and nominees of
tho ro-unlted Democracy.
"My attachment to tho party of my ear
ly allegiance has been Intensified with
passing years, be6ause I have found In tho
principles from which tho genuine Democ
racy lias dcrlvod its llfo and vigor, safo
guidance and consistent Inspiration when
as a public servant I owed to my follow
countrymon patriotic effort nnd unspar
ing devotion to the people's trust. But the
principles and best traits of tho Democ
racy reach their highest Importance and
value at such a tlmo as this, when our
people aro tempted by glittering delusions
and when they are offered the kingdoms
of the world lf they will but throw them
selves down and worship of tho god of
Mammon. I believe wo have fallen upon
days when, more than ever, tho enforce
ment of Democratic doctrine and the ac
ceptation of Democratic conservatism and
stcndlnes3 aro needed, lf our National
greatness and tho woll-belng of our peo
ple are to bo put beyond Jeopardy."
Was Given Ovation.
During his speech Mr. Cleveland was
loudly applauded, at times being Inter
rupted for several minutes. His statoment
that thero was no necessity for him to
apologize for his part in tho deeds of
Democracy caused tremendous cheers of
approval. At his mention of the name of
Alton B. Parker near tho end of his
speech tho audlonco aroso as ono man and
the cheering lasted several minutes. Tho
referenco toD. Cady Horrlck caused loud
applause. At tho conclusion of his speech
Mr Cleveland was greotcd with cheering
moro spontaneous than at any tlmo dur
ing tho evening. Ho then Introduced John
G. Carlisle. Mr. Carllslo was loudly
Carlisle on Gold Standard.
Ho spoko at length on tho Phlllpplno
question and after touching on the sub
ject of tho tariff, took up tho present
claims of the Republican party, and said:
"Tho Republican party, having deter
mined to claim everything, now appro
priates to Itself all tho credit for tho cs
lr.bll3hmcent and maintenance of tho gold
standard of valuo In this country, when
tho truth Is that tho gold standard of val
uo was established by tho Democratic
Earty boforo tho Republican party was
Turning to Mr. Clovcland, Mr. Carllslo
pointed hi3 hand at him and In strident
tones shouted: "Here sits the man" Ho
was unable to finish tho sentence. As lf
by common Impulso tho audience cheered
for Cleveland, who, taken by surprise,
grew red and appeared uneasy, but sat
rdlent during the demonstration. Flnally
lio roso and bowed to tho audlonco. which
cheered for several minutes longer.
Mr. Carllslo finally continued, saying:
"Hero sits tho man who by his thorough
appreciation of his official duty, by his in
domitable will, by his political courage. If
I may use that expression, and by his de
votion to the credit and honor of tho Gov
ernment, rescued tho gold standard from
tho dangerous assaults mado upon it by
Republican, legislation and maintained
f:old payments and gold standard through
four troublesomo years under a storm of
ltuporatlon and misrepresentation scarce
ly ever equalled In this country "
Mr. Carlisle concluded his address with
a eulogy of Alton B. Parker, which caused
another demonstration, the audience rl3lng
and cheering for some tlmo.

TAMAQUA, Pa., Oct. 21. The
strength of a mother's love was never
better demonstrated here than today,
when Mrs. Mary Jones, the proprie

was compelled to appeal to the police
for protection, he having threatened to

For a time he came downstairs to
take his meals, but for several years,
though strong In body, he never left
the room, and, allowing his hair and
beard to grow, remained in seclusion.
While the neighbors wondered as to
his whereabouts his mother, fearful
that ho would bo sent to an asylum,
kept her secret until last night, when
he forsook his quiet attitude and began
searching for a gun with the avowed
intention of killing her.
When she ran out of the house shout

time In four years, stepped from the

where he is still in hiding.

Cultivate Your Sense of Tnstc
Tagte and smell aro two senses we do
not cultivate enough; indeed, hearing,
as we know In the case of the blind,
can reach an acuteness which tho ordi
nary person is absolutely deficient In.
Both taste and smell have great uses.
Probably wo should not see people liv
ing in dirty and insanitary conditions
so blissfully were the sense of smell a
Httlo more developed; while taste, es
pecially in women, . often stigma
tized as greediness. The gourmet, to
use a French word, Is not a gour
mandlzer, but a man whose taste Js
aesthetically and exquisitely trained. It
Is said that the Marechal Due do Riche
lieu, who was a great gastronomic
connoisseur, possessed so fine a taste
as to be able to distinguish whether
the breast of a chicken was cut from
the side of tho gall or not In the same
way wine-tasters can tell a vintage in
stantly. Women rather despise taste;
they eat and that is all. Yet taste was
certainly given us- for a good purpose,
and no ono can order a dinner Intelli
gently who has not cultivated his
palate. The food ono likes and enjoys
always agrees with one's health better
than any other, and the faddist who
would reduce all diet to uniformity
would In time wreck tho public diges
tion. New York World.
Tells How to Be Very Good.
John D. Rockefeller, tho very pious son
of tho very pious head of tho Standard
Oil Iniquity, delivered himself thus to his
"If there Is any ono Ideal that a man
should strive after more than another It
Is tho Ideal of responsibility. A fow days
ago a well-known financier called me up
on tho telephono to ask mo what I thought
of tho contents of a letter ho had sent
mo. I explained that I had not re
ceived any such letter, nnd ho replied that
ho had sent It threo hours beforo by his
office boy. Now, that boy had no Idea of
responsibility. Let us hope that such lack
of responsibility will be confined exclu
sively to offlco boys in tho future.
"It has been tho cause of moro business
wrecks in the past than any other reason.
I employ a good many men, and ono of tho
first hlngs I look Into Is their idea of re
sponsibility. It Is not pleasant to have a
man about you who puts off thoso things.
You tell him to do a-thing today and to
morrow you have to tell him the samo
thing, und tho next day look out to seo If
ho has done It The men who win success
today are those of responsibility. T d
not wish to have a man in my employ who
has to bo followed up to see lf he has dono
what he has been told to do.
"Tho man I want and tho kind of men In

by his employer to do a thing, the em
ployer can remove tho subject from his

This high Ideal of responsibility should bo
carried Into ovory walk of llfo. It shows

"I heard a Sunday-school superintendent
say of a teacher one day: 'She will bo on

man with a high ideal of responsibility, a
woman who had mado a success In life In
her sphere. If a person possesses a high

Tho Japanese Parmer.
About one-half of the entire popula
tion of Japan Is engaged In cultivating
the soil and all this work is done by
hand. The Implements used nre of the
most primitive kind. The plows are
mado of rough wood to which an Iron
point is attached and are said to be
the facsimile of those used In the days
of Pharaoh. They are frequently
drawn by a bullock and both Imple
ment and beast aro guided by a man or
woman who walks patiently all day
long through the slush and mire of tho
In cultivating, a hoe Is used, the blade
of which Is set at an ancle of nearly
45 degrees and Is almost as long as the
rough wooden handle.
Japan produces crops of fine wheat,
especially In the southern part of :he
country and the method of heading It
is the most primitive of all. An im
plement very much like a curry comb
In appearance Is used for this purpose.
It is made sometimes of Iron and some
times of wood and as it Is drawn up
ward through the straw tho hoads are
snapped off. Compare this with the
American machine which cuts a swath
twelve feet wide, removes the heads
and elevates the wheat into u wagon
of special construction.
Yet with these primitive tools It is
astonishing to find the magnificent

of the land under cultivation, and It is
said that the Japanese farmer produces
better rice and a greater quantity per
acre than any farmer in tho world.
As It Is the staple artlclo of diet thero
Is a tremendous home consumption and
the foreign trade Is rapidly Increasing.
Such an lnfluenco has the rice crop
on the commerce of Japan that some
times 'business operations are almost
suspended when It Is feared It may fall
owlner to unpropltlous weather. The
failure would be a national calamity,
for It would mean financial disaster to
a great many persons and some of the
larcest commercial enterprises would
be compelled to close their doors.
Tho secret of the success of Japaneso
farming is certainly not attributable to
tho Implements employed, but there are
two other great factors In the cultiva
tion of the soil and they are fertiliza
tion and Irrigation and in theso the
fanner of Japan 13 certainly an adept.
Only one-twelfth of tho area of the
empire can be used for agricultural
purposes and by centuries of syste
matic Irrigation and fertilization It hus

The sides of the hills and mountains
are terraced as are also the rice rlolds.
The rainwater In many place.n Is con
served on the top of the mountains;
the rivers are all utilized, canals nre
cut and hence the system of hrlgatlon
Is made complete.
Cesspool manure Is used for fertiliz
ing. It is forwarded by rail, boat and
every mode of conveyance to the coun
try. On each farm Is a iargo pit Into
which it is dumped and left until re
quired. When cultivation of tho .soil
"begins. It Is carefully placed In the
ground and the farmer then Irrigates
the soil at will from tho bountiful sup
ply of water at hand.
. This method of cultivation has been
carried on for generations and It '.a this
