NEW YORK v PAPERS ON THE
-New York, Oct 30. One of the
choice bUs of political comment now
on tap in this seething mass of polit
ical activity, is the attitude of two of
the great metropolitan papers of New
York towards the latest contribution
of Preeident Roosevelt to contempor
aneous political polemics.
The president's recent letter to Sen
ator Knox cn the labor question in
which he discusses the attitude of Mr.
Bryan and the democratic party there-
to, Is denounced by the New York Sun
and the New York World.
The Sun says that five-sevenths of
it is ho more .of . Roosevelt's composi-
tion 'than it is of Hearst's, and the
World . intimates , that Knox, himself,
cn able lawyer, is the author of it, Ui
asmitch as, it must have been written
by an able lawyer and Roosevelt is
rot a lawyer at. all. The, World lets
it n nt thnt, but The Siiii rtoprecntes
the" humiliating particular of this pet
ty and , inexpensive deceit" and the
conversion of the White house "for
the time ipto hustings for screaming
oratory." It says the scandal can go
no further, nor the "degradation reach
a lower achievement" even if the pres
ident were to take the stump in per
son in the last days of the canvas"
and thus add the spectacle of physical
frenzy to that mental overintensity.
. But, The Sun add3 a plea that Mr.
Taft should not be made to suffer for
the sins of Roosevelt.
How is Mr. Taft going to dodge the
responsibility for the words and acts
of Mr. Roosevelt? Ar.e they not tied
together? Are they not political Sia
mese twins? :
Has not Mr. Tait; reiterated time.
and again that he and Roosevelt are
one asd inseparable, that he stands' or
falls vvilh Roosevelt -and his policies
Has he not given the most solemn
promises that he will carry out "My
Policies" in both letter and snirit?
If the people. of the country; believe
that Taft is telling the truth how can
they escape from" the belief that Taft
endorses the humiliating spectacle of
the president of the United States
dragging the dignity of his high office
in the mire V
.Mr. Taft either endorses in toto all
Roosevelt's policies and will -carry
them out as he promises; endorses all
that Roosevelt says and does, else he
is unworthy to be elected to the high
office to which. he aspires. V -
The New York Sun endorses Taft,
but does not endorse Roosevell and
the following is what it thinks of . his
latest : performance.
"Let him take the- stump! The
scandal can be -no greater. ... A , cam
paign document addressed to -the la
bor" vote emanated yesterday from 42ie
K'hite house in the form of an alleged
etter from the president of the United
States to Senator Knox of Pennsyl
""A careful perusal j3f le document
leads us to denounce it, without the
slightest hesitation or qualification, as
a fraud upon the unintelligent or too
credulous if intelligent reader. It is
not what it purports to be, the pro
duction of the president of the United
States. About five-sevenths of it, or to
be mathematically exact just fifty-six-ty-sevenths
of it, is scarcely more of
Mr. Roosevelt's composition than it -is
of William Randolph Hearst's. To thai
extent it is fraudulent, an appeal under
false pretences in short, and ugly
English, a lie.' ;
"To the unprecedented degradation
of the office of president of the United
States whichvtne world has been, wit
nessing wth amazement ever since
Mr. Roosevelt broke through the good
counsels previously restraining him and
became politically violent is now add
ed the humiliating particular of this
petty nd inexpensive deceit. He is
not only willing to convert the White
house for the ti.Tie into hustings for
screaming oratory, to the sacrifice of
that high reserve and dignity which
right minded peapkt-bave been in the
habit of .regarding. aH6eparable- from
the most honorable office in the world ; '
he is also willing and quick to attach
the name of the president of the Unit
ed States to borrowed or stolen cam
paign matter of the miscellaneous and
anonymous sort in carbon printed tis
sue editions with which every news
paper establishment; is familiar, "
Can the scandal go further? Can
the degradation reach a lower achieve
ment? We have contemplated with
some apprehension the possibility that
the president might feel himself im
pelled in the last days of the canvass
to go upon the stump in person and
thus " add the spectacle of physical
frenzy to that of mental overintensity.
We do not think now that it would
make much difference so far as the
dignity of presidential office is involv
ed in Mr. Roosevelt's personal behav
lor. . : ' ; .
The following is what the New York
World thinks of the 1 authorship of
Roosevelt's' latest letter: -
"A, Question of style. A .Targe part
of President Roosevelt's letter to Sen
; ator-Knox- is- palpably the work of an
able -and experienced lawyer.- - Mr
Roosevelt is not an able and exper
ienced lawyer, but Mr. Knox is. Can
it be possible that the same hand
which wrote Mr; Knox's "admirable
speech" also wrote. President Roose
velt's congratulatory letter to the Penn
sylvania senator?" "

fered with a severe cough, and con
sumption seemed to have its grip on
