Collier's of December 6 attacked the

concession, charging the concession

it appear as an official exhibit.
Burt says in his letter that long be

Danby, manager of the "Temple." to
stop misrepresentation. He has sent
Collier's copies of letters passing be

SCORED BY TAFT
NEW YORK, Dec. 12. —Former
President William H. Taft, lecturing
before the New York Peace society
last night, accused former President
Theodore Roosevelt of seeking to de
stroy the independence of the judiciary
and demoralise the administration of
justice in two continents.
Taft had been arguing for the main
tenance of the Monroe doctrine, when
he suddenly broke forth with:
"I am glad that Mr. Roosevelt, in
his visit to those countries (Brazil and
Argentina), has sought to impress
them with the view of the Monroe
doctrine that I have expressed. In
deed, he would have helped them, and
us, too, far more if he had confined
his teachings and lectures to explana
tions and limitations of the Monroe
doctrine and had not sought to de
stroy the independence of the judi
ciary and demoralise the administra
tion of Justice in two continents."
