/ 1'rinceton. N. f.. -March 2.
E. Y. Webb. House of Representa
Dear Sir: It is a matter of small
concern to me that a Mr. Scott has
seen fit to use my name in a dis
play of his evil propensities on the
floor of the house of representa
tives. In answer to your inquiry.
however. I have to say of his state
ment that the colored man. C. H. J.
Tavlor. took lunch with me at the
Wifte House that is it a deliberate
facbrication out of whole cloth.
As far as Mr. Tavlor is concern
ed, I understand, prior to his ap
pointment as register of deeds at
Washington that he had served as
an assistant in the office of the city
attorney at Kansas City. His
nomination as register was confirm
ed by the senate and he served in
that place with intelligence and effi
ciencv. He has since died. Some
people restrain themselves from
abusing the dead.
My inquiries concerning Mr.
Taylor before his appointment, my
observation of him (luring his in
cumbency, and the little I have
know .of him since satisfy me that
his character is very unjustly at
tacked in the diatribe of Mr. Scott.
One charge is made against Mr.
Tavlor by Mr. Scott which he doub
lv clinches with truth when he de
clares: "He was a black negro. I
am led. however. to doubt his fa
miliarity with his suggestion when
he adds: "As black as you ever
saw." 8 .
Yours very truly,
Mr. Webb said he wanted this
denial to travel that the statement
of Mr. Scott might be overtaken.
Mr. Cleveland was a friend of
the negro. but not a fool friend."
said Mr. Webb. "He never by
word or action encouraged the
social equality in the breast of the
black man." This was greeted with
applause by the Democrats.
"Again."' he continued, "he was
the friend of colored men, but he
was also the friend of the southern
white man and sympathized with
us in our race p)roblems andl race
burdens, and that, sir, is more than
Mr. Roosevelt seems ever to have
Mr. Scott said he accepted the
statement of Mr. Clev-eland as true
and offered his apology to the for

self. said Mr. Scott, he desired to
say that he never before heard the
