l'.'ihaps that is true. The easiest

Probably most people are familiar
with the story of this most disgraceful
sale of the power of an administration.
These are the facts briefly summa

commerce and la hoi", intrusted with

E. II. Ilarriman was a Wall street
manipulator of railway stocks and wa.i
inviled to come to Washington ami dis
cuss political matters with Mr. Roose
velt as "one practical man with an
other." Mr. Ilarriman returned to New York
and with the- aid of Senator Hepew
and Cornelius X. IUiss raised $2;u.nii0,
all from Wall .street men who as the
owners of railroads would have new
contracts to make with the 1'nited
States government or as bankers cast
avid eyes upon the deposits which it
is in the power of the secretary of the
treasury to make in favored banks.
The cri.ooo was paid to Mr. Cortel
you as chairman of the national com
mittee. Mr. Cortelyou kept !tMKMi fur
trie use of the national committee and
gave .ihvhio to .Mr. mien, chairman
of the New York state committee.

Judge Parker accused Mr. Roosevelt
of Accepting money from the trusts
and was ni'-t by a denial in the truly
Uoosevcliian style of abuse.
The truth of Judge Parker's allega
tion was proved first in the insurance
investigation conducted by the present
Republican governor of New York,
Mr. Hughes, and is now admitted.
Mr. Roosevelt has not withdrawn his
denunciation of Judge Parker as a
wanton falsifier, but lie did appoint
Mr. Cortelyou, who took the money
first, postmaster general, which was
handy for some of the contributors,
and later secretary of the treasury,
which is very advantageous to them
These facts having been given wide
publicity and called to the attention of
Mr. Cortelyou, lie answers thus: "The
charges are false and mendacious, and
when the proper occasion arrives I will
frlve a full account of my stewardship.
but meantime must adhere to my rule
Df not replying to charges of this sort."
Probably Mr. Cortelyou will answer
the charges, which are the most seri
ous ever brought against an American
public 'man, about the time that Mr.

Winter Product Scarce in the Middle
West This Year.
Fruit commission houses in the tri
cities which supply the local marker
this year have had a difficult time in
catering to the wants of their patrons.
Their trouble has all been due to con
tinued shortages in the various stapi."
ai ticks. First it was the lemons, then
the various berries and cherries, and
down the line to peaches. Advices re
ceived now by the commission men is
that the crop of winter apples is ex
tremely short and that prices will go
soaring as soon as the present fad
varieties are off the market. Predic
tions are made that apples will go to
?" a barrel this winter. This will h2
at least $1 a barrel more than the
usual juice. The winter apples have
been a practical failure in the middle
west. There has been a good yield in
New England. New York. Arkansas
