Washington, April o. Out- eiT tii
most sensational features of The llarri
man correspondence given out by Pre-;
iilent Roosevelt yesterday was con
taincd In a letter from the president
to Hon. J. S. Sherman of New York
The president in this letter quotes frotv
one Harriman wrote Sherman in which
Harriman refers to railroad matt e-i -and
what the president might have !
say te congress concerning the inter
state commerce commission.
In the letter to Sherman the pre-d
dent quoted Harriman as having ex
pressed dislike lor him (the president)
and as having declared that so Ions -v-Roosevelt
was head of the republican
party Harriman would not support the
party, giving as the reason Roosevelt's
determination to have railroad super
vision. The president says:
"So much for what Mr. Harriman
said about me personally. Far mo'e
important are the additional remar'is
he made to you, as you inform me.
when you ashed him if he thought it
was well to see Hearst and the lilic
triumphant over the republican party.

"You inform me he told you he did
not care in the least, because those
people were crexdis and he could buy
them; that, whenever lie wanted legis

that he could buy congress and that it
necessary he could buy the judiciary.
"This was doubtless partly In boast
ful cynicism and partly in a mere bur i
of bad temper of his objection to the
interstate commerce law and to my ae
Hons as president. Hut it shows the
cynicism and deep seated corruption
which make the man uttering such
sentiment, ami boasting, no niaM -r
how falsely, of his power to perfor.n
such crime, to be at least as undesir

nana you to say, I made this pronuso
at the time when he had come down
to see me in Washington, when I re
quested him to raise $230,01)0 for th
republican presidential campaign
which was then on."
It appears from' the conversation i
peated to the president that Shermin
had gone to Harriman to ask him for
a contribution. The president savs
Harriman, also, (More than once, h
thinks) urged him to promise to mak
Depew ambassador because it would

The president informed Harriman he
