So Thinks the President In a Public State
ment From Oyster Bay
He Accepts all the Damaging Inferences to be Drawn
From the Archbold Letters and Makes Public Cor
respondence Relating to the Proposed Ohio Com-proiiiise;
Oyster Bay. Sept. 21. President
Roosevelt made public the following
statement today: "In view of Mr.
Hearst's disclosures regarding Senator
Koraker I shall make public the con
tents of a letter written by Mr. Taft
on July 20th, 1907, to a friend In Ohio,
prominent in Ohio politics, who wrote
him before the meeting of the state
central committee asking, whether
lie would object to thecommittee pass
ing a resolution endorsing Mr. Taft
for president and Mr. Foraker for
senator. In the Interest of harmony. A
copy of this letter was submitted to me
at the time, but after the original
had been sent. It was not intended
for publication, but was understood,
if necessary that it would be publish
ed. "I personally know tlist the strong
est pressure by various leaders was
brought on Mr. Taft at tha time to
consent to the proposed arrangeent and
he was informed by leading men from
other states that if he would consent
to the arrangement all opimsition on-l
the part of Mr. Foraker and on the
part of some of Mr. Foraker's influen
tial friends in the senate and elsewhere
would cease and that Mr. Taft's nomi
nation for the presidency would be as
sured, but Mr. Taft declined for one
moment to consider any possible ad
vantage to himself, where what he re
garded as a great principle was at
stake. His attitude on this question,
as well as on countless questions, con
vinced me that of all men in this union,
he was the man preeminently fit in
point of uprightness and character, for j
fearless and aggressive honesty for j
championing the rights of the people i
as a whole, to be president. j

Senator Foraker has been a leader
among those members of congress of
both parties who have resolutely op
posed the great policies of internal re
form for which the administration has
made itself responsible. His attitude
has been that of certain other public
men, notably (as shown In this same
correspondence published by Mr.
Hearst) Governor Haskell of Oklahoma.
There is a striking difference in one
respect, however, in the present po
sition of Governor Haskell and Senator
Foraker. Governor Haskell stands
high in the councils of Mr. Bryan and
Is the treasurer of his national cam
paign committee. Senator Foraker
represents only forces which in embit
tered fashion fought the nomination of
Mr. Taft and which were definitely
deprived of power within the republi
can party when Mr. Taft was nominat
ed. The publication of this correspon
dence not merely justified in striking
fashion, the action of the administra
tion, but it also casts a serious side
light on the attacks made upon the
administration, both in the Denver
convention which nominated Mr. Bry
an, and in the course of Mr,. Bryan's
There is but one way to preserve
perpetuate and get great reforms, great
advances in righteousness and upright
and fair dealing, which has marked
the management of the affairs of the
national government during the last
seven years and this is by electing Mr.
Taft. To defeat him will bring lasting
satisfaction to but one set of men,
namely to those men who, as shown
in the correspondence published by
Mr. Hearst, were beliind Foraker, the

ernor Ha-skell and his associates, op
ponents of Mr. Taft in the opposing
The portion of the letter written by
Mr. Taft reads as follows: "In re
spect to the inquiry of yours, I
wish to express myself with as much
emphasis as possible; that Is, wheth
er I would object to the compro
mise resolution which shall include
the endorsement of myself for the
presidency and Senator Foraker for
the senatorship. In . my judgment
it would not be only a great - mis
take something more, it would be
accepted necessarily as a compro
mise on my behalf, and therefore
with my acquiescence, or at least
with the acquiescence of my friends
for whose action I am more or less
responsible. It would totally mis
represent my position.
"I don't care for the. .presidency if
it has to come by a compromise with
Senator Foraker or anyone else in
the matter of principle. He has op
posed the vital policies and prin
ciples of the administration and his
opposition has caused to be magni
fied, important but incidental mat
ters to embarrass the administration
using in this, without scruple, blind
race prejudice to accomplish his
main purpose. If I were confronted
with any factional differences within
my party, which does not involve a
subject which must come up for con
sideration and action by the next
republican national convention, I
should not be so emphatic in my
concluison. It is not on my part a
question of personal feeling with re
spect to Senator Foraker. It is a
question of political principle."
FORAKER WILL REPLY LATER
Cincinnati, Sept. 21. Senator Fora
ker tonight stated that owing to the
lateness of the hour, he would not
make any reply to the statement issued
tonight by President Roosevelt rela
tive to the position Judge Taft had
taken in the matter of the endorsement
f Senator Foraker for re-election.
He further said he might make a
statement tomorrow, if, after consid
eration, he deemed a reply necessary.

The Events ot Two Days

If anything were needed to make of
more absorbing interest to baseball en
thusiasts the series to be begun today
between the New York and Chicago
National League teams on the Polo
grounds, yesterday's happenings ' on
baseball diamontl supplied it. New
York was again obliged to lower its
colors to Pittsburg in a close game
and Chicago won both ends of the
double herder in Philadelphia. The
present leaders lost a great part of the
advantage they had gained by their re
cent string of successive victories.
This morning New York has a lead
of but twenty points over Chicago.
Four games will probably be played by
these two clubs in the present series,
and by winning them all, Chicago
would assume the lead in the National
league race. An even break, of even
the winning of one game out of four,
however, would still leave the present
leaders in first position.
In the meantime, Pittsburg, seven
points behind, will be playing Brooklyn
and not inconceivably may gain sub
stantially on one or both of the clubs
now preceding it in the standing.
The race in the senior organization
Is full of interest with the possibility
of ultimate victory by any of the three
leading teams. The standing, with
Monday's games included, is:
Won. Lost. Pet.
New Yosfc 87 48 .644
Chicago 88 53 .624
Pittsburg 87 54 .617
Not less interesting and even closer
is the race in the American League,
which yesterday witnessed the dis
placement of Detroit from the leader
ship, which is assumed now by Cleve
land, by virtue of that club's victory
over New York and Detroit's defeat by
Boston. Only five points behind De
troit Is Chicago, also a winner yester
day, with St. Louis keeping up the pace
thirteen points to the rear of Chicago,
and with only twenty points between
the St. Louis men in fourth place and
Lajoie's men in first place.
The standing of the leading quartet
this morning follows:
Won. Lost. Pet.

GUILTY OF CONTEMPT
HE Undertook to Influence a Couple
of Ruef Jurors.
San Francisco, Sept. 21. Charles
Oliver, Jr., special agent In the em
ploy of the prosecution in the brib
ery graft cases, was today adjudged
guilty of contempt by Judge W. P.
Lawlor, for approaching and inter
viewing W. Gerrman and W. S. Har
rison, two men who had temporarily
passed into the jury box after they
had been tentatively accepted as ju
rors in the trial of Abraham Ruef.
Judgment will be passed by the
court tomorrow. Young Oliver is the
son of Charles Oliver, one of the
principal agents in the employ of
Wm. J. Burns, the head of the corps
of special agents employed by the
district attorney's office In the brib
ery graft cases.
German and Harrison complained
to the court that the young man,
representing himself to be a news
paper reporter, called upon them on
Saturday night. Both declared that
they refused to discuss the Ruef
case with him.
Although 450 names have been
drawn so far, the fourth week in
the ' wnrk of getting a jury to try
ftuef on one of the seventy-six in
dictments charging him with bribery,
legan this morning with but nine
men in the jury box.
Before the morning session was
over Thomas Dolan, aged 70, was
excused after being temporarily pass
ed, at his request, on the ground
that he was too old to stand the
strain of the trial. This left but
eight men in the box and these are
subject to peremptory challanges, of
which the defense has ten and the
prosecution five. At the present rate
of progress there is little prospect of
getting a jury to try Ruef under an
other four weeks.
A PROGRESSIVE ATTACK
ON TAFT AND ROOSEVELT
Bryan Continues His
He Argues His Election More Than Taft's Would
Scare a Republican Congress Into Doing the Right
Thing by the People.
Medina, X. Y., Sept. 21. Renewing
his campaign in New York state today,
William J. Bryan denounced the rec
ord of the republican party, and ac
cused President Roosevit of purloin
ing democratic ideas and of owing his
popularity to them and he charged
Taft with being unable to effect any
reform. He declared that democratic
victory would do more to coerce re
publicans in congress than any per
suasion Taft could bring to bear, if a
republican victory was achieved on
that party's record.
Having traveled all night from Al
bany, a short stop was made at Roch
ester between trains. Proceeding to
Buffalo addresses were made at Brook
port, Holley, Albion and at this place.
It became evident from the outset
that President Roosevelt and Taft were)
A DAY OF SELLING
ON STOCK MARKET
The Depressing Influence of Last
Week Lasted Over Sunday.
New York. Sept. 21 With the active
selling of stocks and the acute weak
ness carried up to the very close of
last week, it was a mutter of course
that outside selling orders should be
of considerable volume when opera
tions began today. The active specu
lative position was on the selling side
of the market. Opening declines in
prices also broke through the limits of
additional stop loss orders and precipi
tated fresh liquidation on the market.
Talk of the copper market wis not
hopeful. Another marking down of
prices of copper at the metal exchange
and of copper warrants in the London
market gave point to the talk. From
