H ANNA SAYS HE WAS MISQUOTED.
Corrects the Report of His Chicago Speech
Cleveland, O., SepL 23. Senator
Hanna left for New York this evening.
He will remain at the Republican
headquarters there for two or three
weeks, and will then return to Chicago.
In an interview to-day he said:
"The speech I made at Chicago on
the so-called trust issue was misquoted
and garbled.. What I said was that
there were no trusts in the meaning of
the law. When I said that I did not
say that there are no combinations f
capital nor did I say that there are no
combinations that work in justice
to the people. This so-called tru
issue is nothing more than a bugaboo
of Bryan's to catch votes. What
anti-trust laws have been enacted have
been enacted by the Republicans. On
the sc-called trust issue Bryan is on
the defensive. He should tell whv the
Democratic party has never supported
nor proposed any legislation to regu
late the commercial combinations of
the country. Bryan can not defend
the Democratic party on that issue,
and it, with the issue of imoerialism.
will soon be relegated to the rear
The money question will soon be the
paramount issue. Brvan will have to
meet that issue too."
Senator Hanna said he had not
decided to go on the stump in the
East, but would do so if be thought
best. He declared furthermore that
he had issued no challenge to Mr.
Bryan for a joint debate, nor had he
challenged anybody to debate. How
ever, he said he was not afraid to
meet anybody on the issues of the
