WO ROOSEVELT OPERATION
Reporters Follow News Lead and
Run Against Denials.
Friends of Theodore Roosevelt in this
city wished he had come to town yester
<iay. because they had to meet the news
japer reporters just as if Mr. Roosevelt
really had been here, and, with him absent,
they showed that the experience was be
reft of the elements of joy.
Rumor had Mr. Roosevelt in town ready
for an operation on his throat. Rumor
elected Dr. Walter Franklin Chappell, of
Ha. 7 East sf>th street, to perform the op
eration at the Manhattan Eye. Ear and
Throat Hospital, in East •-'•4th street. It was
alto said that a nurse stood waiting with
the anaesthetic. .. •
The nurse could not be found, but Dr.
« "happens secretary denied the truth of
the report from morning until night. The
secretary wished the denial emphasized, go
that If there were still any rej»orters who
Lad not yet called at the doctor's office
they might be saved inconvenience. No in
timation from Mr. Roosevelt of an im
j>< rding operation had reached Dr. Chap
jell, it was declared.
At — Manhattan Hospital a clerk was
assigned to brush away any mjstery that
might be supposed to exist In regard to the
Operation that the clerk denied was in con
templation, so far as that institution was
concerned.
The office force of "The Outlook" could
not ihir.k of ar.y ba?ie for the rumor, unless
other "news" was dull. A man there said
Mr. Roosevelt would not reach his editorial

Loeb Denies Making Details of
Beverly Conference.
Collector Loeb yesterday disclaimed any
agency in arranging a conference to be
participated in by President Taft, es-
FresJdent Roosevelt and Governor Hughes
at Beverly. Mass., on Wednesday or
Thursday evening of tins week. Instead
of having arranged such a meeting, he
said, lie had first heard of it from the
morning papers yesterday.
"I have not seen Colonel Roosevelt since
last Wednesday." paid the Collector, "and
I do not know anything about the plan for
him to meet Governor Hughes or the Pres
ident at Beverly. The report may have
originated from the fact that Colonel
Roosevelt, who is president of the Harvard
alumni, and Governor Hughes, who is to
deliver the oration at Harvard commence
ment, will meet on that occasion. I have
not communicated with him and do not
know that any meeting will take place out
side that at Harvard."
Mr. Loeb admitted that he had been do-
Ing all he could in a quiet way to help the
passage of Governor Hughes'a direct pri
mary bill or the Cobb measure, which, he
said, had drawn practicaly all the support
of those who at first favored the Hinraan-
Green bill.
A report that a conference was to be held
yesterday to determine upon- the attitude
of the Republicans general!y toward the
Cor.b rnrrary bill started the politicians
to inquiries what was to be done at the
conference. Those mentioned as likely to
take part in the conference were Speaker
Wadsworth. Senator Cobb, Assembly Lead
er Merritt. Timothy Woodruff, Assembly
man Phillips and Lloyd C. Griscom.
Messrs. Woodruff and Griscom said they
had heard nothing of such a conference.
Collector Loeb. -who was supposed to be
prepared to act as intermediary between
the uuuf UIU I CM and ex- President Roosevelt
denied any knowledge of the meeting. As-
Bemblymaa Merritt was said to be in Nan
tudket R. 1., and Speaker Wadsworth at
his home.
Aim miiljfiiiHli Phillip* was in the city,
but his visit, it was said, was in connec
tion with the affairs of the joint commit
tee an employers" liability, of which State
Senator J. IE. Walnwright is chairman,
while at the Republican Club and the
hotels where the men mentioned are in
the habit of staying while in the city noth
ing had been heard of their coming to at
tend such a conference.
DENIAL FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.
Washington. June 27.— 1t was stated at
the White House to-day that nothing was
kr.own there of a prospective meeting of
Governor Hughes, Colonel Roosevelt and
President Taft at Beverly this week or
any other time in the near future. It is
said positively that no such arrangement
has been suggested at the Washington end.
POSITION OF MR. ROOSEVELT
He Should Advocate Popular Govern
ment. Says Senator Bourne.
Chicago, June 27.— The position that ex-
President Roosevelt may take In American
affairs was outlined yesterday by United
States Senator Jonathan Bourne. Jr., of
Oregon, who was in Chicago on his way to
Pec-ria.
"I believe that the great issue before the
American people will be popular govern
ment against delegated government," he
said, "and I hope Mr. Roosevelt will take
the leadership nd advocacy, of general
adoption of popular government, by which
1 mean direct accountability of all public
servants to party and general electorates,
rather than to Irresponsible political ma
chines. The people undoubtedly will
weigh carefully any ideas he may have to
submit." His position in history will depend
as much upon the doctrines he may at
: tempt to promulgate its on his accomplish
ments while President.
"The work of this Congress was extreme
ly satisfactory, so far as it goes," said Mr.
: Bourne. "In its relativeness to other Con
gresses it has been more progressive in ef
fort and partial acomplishment than any
: for several decades."
LETTER FROM ROOSEVELT
Makes School Children Happy in Re
plying to Their Welcome.
Paterson. N. J.. June ZL— The proudest set
of boys and girls in this city to-day are
the members of the B class of Public
School 21. A letter from ex-President
Roosevelt, written to their teacher, is the
cause.
Several Jays ago Miss Anna Firth had
each of the boys and girls in the class write
an individual letter to Mr. Roosevelt, tell
ing bin how glad they were that he was
nome again. The children did not suppose
they would receive an answer, and are nat
urally very proud of the following:
To the- Principal of School 21.
Dear Sir: It is physically impossible for
me to even read, much less answer, the
enormous number of letters I am now re
ceiving, but I cannot let the twenty-six
very nice letters which I have received
from your scholars pas* without hearty and
appifciatlve thanks. Of course it is im
possible to thank each individual writer.
bat l hope you will tell the boys and girls
now I appreciate th* fine welcome they
MM given me. I also congratulate you.
NEW-YORK DAILY TKIBUXE. TUESDAY; Jt'^E 28. 1910.
These letters are so neatly and admirably
written that they reflect great credit on the
school and its teachers. With very best
wishes to you all, I am faithfully yours,
" THEODORE ROOSEVELT.

NONE SPEAKS FOR PARADE
Opinions o? Guardsmen All
Opposed to Show.
'NEEDLESS,' CLARKSON SAYS
General Outspoken in Criticism
of Order — Soldiers Hesitate
to Speak Openly.
Public sentiment against the proposed pa
rade of the National Guard and the Naval
Militia on July 4 as a part of the munici
pal committee's plans for a sane celebra
tior of Independence Day was augmented
yesterday by th»» many protest.3 received at
The Tribune office. Citizens who consider
It would be imposing a needless task upon
the soldiers sent in letters of protest, and
there were many adverse expressions of
opinion from prominent men in the com
munity.
Some citizens whose opinions on the sub
ject were sought yesterday declined to ex
press them on the ground that they did
not intend to be in the city on that day
and could not expect to snow the 'proper
patriotic approval of a military demonstra
tion, should it be held. They appeared to
believe that the soldiers should have the
same privilege to seek a cooler place for
the extended holiday with their families
and not be compelled to march unless citi
*enn were likewise compelled to stay at
home and support and applaud their effort.
The guardsmen themselves, despite the
Mayor's belief that most of them are ready
ancl willing to parade with a commendable
spirit of patriotism, are in large majority
adverse to the proposition, and express
their minds freely on the subject, although
they hesitate to speak openly as a matter
of discipline. They are ready to obey or
ders in the true spirit of soldierly duty
and tr- march if they have to, but it is not
difficult to learn that the present order ifl
distasteful to them and an unnecessary and
misguided obligation thrust upon them on
this particular Fourth of July, in their
opinion.
Needless Duty, Says General Clarkson.
General James S. Clarkson, former Sur
veyor-of the Port, was among those who
were strong in their opinion of disapproval
of calling out the troops on the Fourth.
"I can't see the necessity of it at all."
said General Clarkson yesterday. "I think
it would be imposing a needless duty and
discomfort upon the soldiers. Many of
them are men of families, and I should
think would want to spend the holiday
with their people. That would be a saner
way for them to spend the Fourth, in my
opinion. I do not believe that a military
parade will be worth while as an incident
to a sane celebration of Independence
Day."
Some of the ministers who are in the
city thought that the parade might act as
a patriotic incentive to the children who
saw it. but they were more hopeful that
many of the children would get out of the
city 'for the holiday, and fearful that the
little ones might suffer from the heat if
they had to stand on the street curbings
for any length of tmie.
Civic Celebration Better.
The Rev. George Clarke Peck, pastor of
St. Andrew's Methodist Episcopal Church,
which has a large congregation on the
upper West Side, said yesterday that he
approved of the parade if it would appeal
to the children as a substitute for fire
crackers and toy cannons, and in that way
supplement and aid in the general plans
for a sane Independence Day celebration.
"But I am not sure that it would have
this effect." he said, "and it might be bet
ter to make it entirely a civic celebration
liiFtead of the military, and confine the
children's participation in it to the exer
cises in the rchools. I suppose the soldiers
would like the holiday, too. and it would
be useless to make them march unless it
would accomplish some definite good be
yond :he mere spectacle of the troops in
line."
Other ministers thought that the troops
would respond to the order to march with
the proper sense of duty and patriotism,
as they understood that spirit to prevail in
the national guard, but they deplored the
necessity of calling out the soldiers this
year when a holiday of practically three
Oays was afforded to the men on account
of the Fourth falling on Monday.
TIME TO REVOKE FOOLISH ORDER.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In his statement regarding the
Fourth of July parade Mayor Gaynor said
that both General Roe and Colonel Apple
ton approved it. Now. I am reliably in
formed that both General Roe and Colonel
Appleton went to the meeting of the May
or's committee in the Oty Kail prepared to
object to an order calling out the national
guard.
Their reasons were identical with those
so forcibly expressed in your columns by
Buch authorities as General Henry and Col
onel Church. But when General Roe and
Colonel Appleton reached the Mayor's meet
ing they, in company with the other eom
mitteemen, were confronted by his honor,
who stated that it was his desire and plan
to have a parade including the national
guard, and that he hoped every man who
was opposed to loss of life and destruc
tion of property and who favored a safe
and pane celebration on the Fourth would
indorse -his plan. Little else was « al<s on
this subject. • and r presently General Roe
and : Colonel Appleton found themselves out
on the sidewalk, wondering, no doubt, what
had become of their well intention'"'! pro
test. .
One of the Mayor's commltteemen nas
said In your columns that the parade prop
osition was not sufficiently considered.
Mayor Gaynor has shown in his public
interviews that he j has an utter miscon
ception of the duties, purpose a nd . s^ irt
of the national "guard. His remarks about
"soldiers afraid to march" and "let them
sweat; It will do them good." should be
resented by some one in authority.
"The time has certainly come, as you have
well said, to revoke a foolish, unpopular
order. And hereafter it would be well for
civil officials and their committees to leave
military affairs to the regularly consti
tuted military authorities. :
GUARDSMAN.
New York. June 27. 1910.
LET PATRIOTIC SOCIETIES PARADE
To the Kditor of The Tribune.
Sir: Much has been said relative to no pro
tests havlnpr been made by members of the
national puard apalnst being ordered out
for parade on the Fourth of July. This
being the case tends to show discipline and
the loyalty of the men to orders from head
quarters. While a number of the men will
turn out. it will not be from choice or a
spirit of patriotism, especially as the parade
will be in Manhattan and in the business
rection; and It is not to be expected that a
large number. of people will stand for any
iength of time in the heat to see a parade
of such short duration.
As for the men themselves, it Is not often
that an opportunity affords to take a vaca
tion of three days, as many of them had
already made arrangements to do. It Is
rot the march or the time it will take, but
the break In the few days, which will pre
vent many from leaving the city with their
families. It would be more beneficial if the
different regiments were to parade and par
ticipate in th 9 ceremonies in the locality of
their several armories, in which case a
larger number of pe.ople would be present
and more interest taken by every one In a
cafe and sane Fourth. As for funds, it
might be sai-J that the guardsmen would
willingly contribute in preference to parad
ing. .
Many have just returned from a tour or
camp duty and others are yet to go, ■
this will be the only vacation that many
of the men will be able to get. and it all
means work-this in addition to the time
and energy given during the drill season
which has been made more exacting and
difficult to come up to the requirements or
the Dick law passed by Congress.
Too much credit cannot be given the men
for the work now done and for unnecessary
work of no benefit to the national guard or
the people. Confine the Daraanß to the
many patr-otic societies which are In the
city and let the grard turn out to a man
on Memorial Day.
EDWARD J. BRIDGES.
Brooklyn, June 25, 19V>.
SAYS PARADE IS AN OUTRAGE.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: The emergency of war alone should
call for such a demonstration by the na
tional guard in the broiling midday sun as
is ordered for July 4. IMO. It is the same
ignorant disregard for the welfare of the
soldiers by those in authority that cost
our nation the lives of four thousand noble,
splendid types of physical manhood from
disease against four hundred killed, or died,
from wounds received from the enemy in
ihe Spanish-American War.
To trot our soldier boys up and down tne
streets in ttwlr heavy dress uniforms for
the amusement of a coatless. shirtwaist
crowd is an outrage, pure and simple. On
July 3. 1563, at Gettysburg, our men stood
out in the open, under the broiling sun. but
they were coatless, and the Irish Brigade
even stripped to trousers and shoes. That
was not a moving picture show— it was a
field of death.
If the coming Fourth is a hot day many
of our national guardsmen, unaccustomed
to the hot sun, will bite the dust. This
order will, without doubt, prevent many re
enlistments by men whose time is nearly
expired. It is also wrong to deprive the
guardsmen of the two or three days' vaca
tion so dear to them and their families.
The authorities should cancel this order.
CIVIL. WAR VETERAN.
Brooklyn, June 27, 1910.
SAYS MEN DARE NOT PROTEST.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: As a veteran of the Civil War, I
know something of the conditions involved
in th's order to the national guard. The
men dare not protest, as it means dis
obedience; nor would they if it did not, as
it might suggest 'tender feet." I do nut
believe the Governor understands the situ
ation, and I am nure our Mayor staged this
programme under the cool breezes of his
country home on the island.

GLORY AND THE CALAMITY LIST.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Would there not be far more glory
In a Fourth of July calamity list, born of
enthusiastic and patriotic celebration, than
one caused by beat prostrations brought
about in the discharge of a duty the na
tional guard is too honorable to cry out
of? W. F. SHAROT.
