TIRADE AGAINST PARKER.
Roosevelt. Issues Red Hot Denial of
"Slander" Are Words Used.
Washington, November 5.-Presi
dent Roosevelt last night made the i
following signed statement to the
American people in answer to the
aharges made against himself and Mr.
Cortelyou in public speech by Mr.
Parker, the democratic candidate
for the presidency:
"Washington, Nov. 4, 1904.
"Certain slanderous accusations as
to Mr. Cortelyou and myself have
been repeated time and again by
Judge Parker, the candidate of his
party for the office of president. He
neither has produced nor can pro
duce any proof of their truth; yet
he has not withdrawn them; and as
his position gives them wide currency
I speak now lest the silence of self
respect be misunderstood. Mr. Par
ker's charges are in effect that the
president of the United States and
Mr. Cortelyou, formerly Mr. Cleve
land's clerk, then Mr. McKinlpy's and
my secretary, then secretary 'of com
merce and labor and now chairman
of the republican national committee,
have been in a conspiracy to black
mail corporations, Mr. Cortelyou us
ing his knowledge while he was secre
tary of the department of commerce
and labor to extort money from the
corp,rations, and I, the president,
having appointed him for this espec
ial purpose. The graveness of these
charges lies in the assertion that the
corporations have been blackmailed
into contributing and in the implica
tion, which in one or two of Mr. Par- I
ker's speeches has taken the form I
practcally of an assertion, that they
have been promised certain immuni
ties or favors or have been assured
that they would receive some kind of c
improper consideration in view of
their contributions. That contribu
tions have been made to the repub- r
lican committee, as contributions
have been made to the
democratic committee, is not the
question at issue. Mr. Parker's as' I
sertion is in effect that such contri
butions have been made for improp
er motives, either in consequence of t
threits or in consequence of improper
promise; direct or indirect, on the
part of th'e recipients. Mr. Parker
knows best whether this is true oft
the contributions to his campaign
fulg1 which have come through his
truh?ed friends and advisers who re
present the gr~eat corporate interests
V:that stand behind him. But there is
niot one p,article of truth in the state
ment as regards anything that has I
Sgone on in the management of the re
pulia campaign. Mr. Parker's 1
accusations against Mr. Cortelyou a
and me are monstrous. If true they I
would brand both of us forever with
inifamy; and inasmuch as they are a
false heavy must be the condemna
tion of a man making them, I chose
Mr. Cortelyou as chairman of the
national committee after having fail
ed successively to persuade Mr. Elihu:
Root, Mr. W. Murray Crane and Mr.
Cornelius~ N. Bliss to accept the posi
*tion. I 'chose him with extreme re
luctance, because I could ill spare him
from the cabinet. But I felt.that he
possessed the high integrity which
I demanded in the man who was to
manage my campaign, I am contentI
that Mr. Parker and I should be
judged by the public on the charac
ters of the two men whom we chose
to manage our cainpaign, he by 'the
character of his nominee, Mr. Thom
as Taggart, and I by the character
of Mr. Cortelyou. The assertion that
Mr. Cortelyou had any knowledge
gained while in any official position4
whereby he svas enabled to secure
anid did secure any contribution from
any cororation is a falsehood. The 3
assertion that there has been any l
blackmail direct, or indirect, by Mr. t
Cortelyou or by me is a falsehood.
The assertion that there has been
made in my behalf and by my author
ity by Mr. Cortelyou or by any one
else, any pledge or promise or that
*there has been any understanding as
to .~tare immunities or benefits, in I4
*reco,.nition of any contribution from
anygotrce. is a wicked falsehood.
"*. 'That Mr. Parker should desire to
*avoid the discussion of principles, I
can wer' uide:-stand; for it is but the
bare truth to say that he has not at
*tacked us on any matter of principlo
nent save after first misstating thai
)rinciple or that action. But I can
iot understand how any honorablh
nan, a candidate for the highest of
ice in the gift of the people, can take
efuge not merely in personalities
)ut in such base and unworthy per
;onalities. If I deemed it necessar3
o support my flat denial by any evi
lence I would ask all men of commor
;ense to ponder well what has beer
lone in this campaign by Mr. Cortel
rou, and to compare it with what Mr
?arker himself did when he was man
iging Mr. Hill's campaign for gov
irnor; and to compare what has beer
lone as regards the great corpora
ions and moneyed interests under this
tdministration with what was dont
inder the last democratic administra
ion while Mr. Olney was attorne3
reneral; I would ask all honest mer
vhether they seriously deem it pos
ible that the course this administra
ion has taken in every matter from
he Northern Securities suit to the
ettlement of the anthracite coal
trike is compatible with any theory
)f public behavior save the theory ol
loing exact justice to all men with
>ut fear and without favoritism; I
vould ask all honest and fair-minded
nen to remember that the agents
hrough whom I have worked are Mr.
Cnox and Mr. Moody, in the depart
nent of justice, Mr. Cortelyou in the
[epartment of commerce and labot
nd Mr. Garfield in the bureau ol
:orporations, and that no such ,acl
>f infamy as Mr. Parker charges
:ould have been done without all
hese men being parties to it.
"The statements made by Mr. Par
:er aie unqualifiedly and atrociously
alse. As Mr. Cortelyou has said tc
ne m6re than once during this cam
taign, if elected I shall go into the
iresidency unhampered by any pledge
iromise, or understanding of any
:ind, sort or description, save my
romise, made openly to the Ameri
an people, that so far as in my power
ies I shall see to it that every ma!,
