Columbia, Sept. 2S.?A complete
statement concerning the invitation ,

r to Theodore Roosevelt to speak in Co
lumbia during the 5th National Corn |
Exposition next .January has been is- (
sued by the exposition management.
This statement is made consequent ,

afternoon from Mayor Gibbes and A.

"which they gave their reasons for deI

that they feared that this invitation
extended at this time would give one
candidate an undue advantage over
his two opponents in the heated presidential

"The stir that has been raised about
the proposed invitation to Col. Roose|
velt is a tempest in a tea-pot, very
much to do about nothing. The facts
are as follows: 'It has been the plan
? of the National Corn exposition management
to invite all three of the lead-!
ing candidates for presidents to attend
the exposition on different occa*
sions. As president, incumbent during
ttie exposition, Mr. Taft would naturally
be invited. He attended the exposition
lasi held in Columbus, Ohio,
two yecrs ago, as president-elect, after '
November's election, Governor Woodrow
Wilson would be invited, and it
| was the confident expectation that he

"The invitation to Col Roosevelt was
to be extended in a significant way.
For some time it has been planned to
hold in Columbia a reunion of the former
Dupils of the late Governor Hugh
S. Thompson, the beloved teacher and
distinguished statesman whose memory
is cherished in his native State.

proposed to the management of the

might take advantage of the low rates
granted for the corn exposition.
"The exposition management agreed
to the proposition that then was suggested
that it would be extremely appropriate
to invite Col Roosevelt to attend

which can never be forgotten.
