THE MARION DAILY MIRROR. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 13, 1907,
THE PRflSltJENT ENDORSES CON
FOR MAYOR OF CLEVELAND.
Burton Says the Sole Object of HIb
Campaign Is to Free the City
from the Alleged Ring Rule of
Cleveland, Sept. IS. Congressman
Theodore E. Burton Inst night Issued
a statement commenting on the Ko-rnll
ed national phases or t Ii coming mu
nicipal election In Cleveland In which
he lst the rnpuhllcnu nominee for
mayor, and making puhllc for the first
time the letter of President Roosevelt
urging him to nccept the republican
leadership In opposition to Mayor
Mr. Burton's statement. Including
the letter of the president, follows:
"An erroneous Impression hus gone
forth that the mayoralty campaign
hero la to an exceptional extent com
plicated with national politics. Such Is
not the cnBe. The nll-Hiilllclcnt reason
for my candidacy Is the local situation
Unless l.nm grossly deceived, existing
conditions under the presuut clt ad
ministration demand Immediate and
radical reform. The aim of the cam
paign In which I am engaged Is to re
deem' the city of CU eland from the
administration of a ring.
"The specious claim has been made
that the main desire of the present ad
ministration Is to give the people of
Cleveland cheap street car faro. Under
cover of this slogan there has been
built-up In Cleveland a tremendous po
litical machine. Every department of
the city government haa been utillcd
to porpetunto Its. power. Knvors have
been granted and bargains made
wherever political support could be
obtained. Influences are being exert
ed through the police ami building de
partments, among contractors who
have (dealings with the city and by nn
army, of city employes with an arbi
trariness and a resort to (uestlonabIe
methods never surpassed In any Amer
"lt;ls not the object of those who
stnnd with me on the ticket to substi
tutes one political ring for another, but
to give a better administration to the
city of Cleveland one not subversive
of the fundamental Ideas of popular
control and in which nil Interests, in
cluding street lallway corporations,
shall be treated without favor or preju
dice.; "1 should have been extremely re
luctant to have turned qslde from na
tional politics without the approval of
President Roosevelt nnd Secretaries
Tnft and Garfield. For this reason I
have communicated with each of them.
Their friendly advice has conio to me
ou my solicitation, and there has been
no .attempt nt Interference. The fol
lowing Is the letter received from
" 'Oyster Bay. X. Y., Aug. 30, 1007.
"'My Dear Mr. Burton:
" 'You put a hnrd question to mo In
your letter to Mr. I.oeb. There nro
certain qualities of lendeishlp you pos
sess which could not be supplied by
anyone else In the house, and you have
a mastery of certa'ii subjects such us
no other man In the house can hope to
attnln. For you to leave the bouse,
therefore, would mean that In tertulii
lines of leadership then' would be a
loss that cannot he made up. I would
therefore bo tempted to protest ngalnst
your leaving, if It were not for m pio
found conviction that It Is exceedingly
desirable that you should win out as
mayor of Cleveland. In view of the
fact that our democratic system un
dergoes Its most sovero strain in tho
government of our cities, I feel Hint it
Is of the utmost Importance to luivo a
man of your experience, power and
character, of your long training, theo
retical and practical, in public llfo,
take such n position as that of the
mayoralty of Cleveland. Accordingly,
5f you ask my udvlco I should say,
make the light.
"With ull good wishes, hollevo mq
"Beth Secretaries Taft and Ourfleld
have strongly ndvised mo to enter tno
contest for tho mayoralty; tho former
by letter1 and telegrnm; tho latter In n

Tiie convention that framed the
state constitution was democratic nnd
tho constitution was obnoxious to the

Clarence Fuy, assistant comptroller

and ono twenty-seventh respectively.
Tho geography of sulcldo Is nlso of
high Interest. Westcott says tho high
est proportion in Europo Is shown by
tho Germaulo races, Saxony having
"tho largest iato of nny country." In
Norway tho rate wns vory largo lor n
time, Its doorcase being nttrlbutod to
tho greater restrictions now laid on
thu liquor tralllc.
Tho Celtic races havo a low rate,
and this Is evinced by tho figures for
Ireland and Wales. Mountainous re
gions nro said to show a Iowpr rate
than lowlands. In tho hlghlnnds ol
Scotland and Wales, and In tllo high
ureas of Switzerland, nulcldo is rnro.
Times and seasons also operate ap
parently, to lnlluenco tho act of solf
destruction. Roughly speaking, tho
curve lino of suicide, calculated
through tho year, rises from January
to July, and decreases for tho second
half or tho year. Tho maximum peri

Ono reason for such preeminence In

Perhaps ono of tho most curious
phases or this Btudy Is revealed In tho
fact already alluded to namely, that
different countries to show prefer
ences for different means of commit

most common Europonn method la by
means of hanging, but In Italy this
modo of self-destruction Is rare.
Drowning comes next In-order, and

Shooting Is frequent In Italy and

England nnd Ireland; It doos not scorn
to constitute anywhere olso a frequent
modo of ending life.
Poisoning Is a specially Anglo-Saxon
method of sulcldo, wo nro talds'whllo
