The Labor Questions. To -.-our eleventh question—l would &n *Tr<»r that your solicitude for th» welfare of tlie men who work for me is truly ' lychnis. The best evidence of my atti tude toward labor is found in tb« fact^ tb»t there has never p'^n a strike in the iriil which I control; that the men regulate their own hours of labor; that they are free If th*»y choos» to Join the unions of their j craft, and many of them are members of their respective" unions that the waces ■• jiay «re at least equal to the highest paid | by any of nor competitors and average the sum of J2SS a day. and that the hours of j work are entirely optional with the men. Bnd ar«» the same M those in other wall paper mills in the country- In order that jour false accusations may br> forever set at rest, ' commend to * ° " «nd th» former President of the United States, who has slandered me in repard to my relations with my employes, the state mei-ts of the ofllciai representatives of tir* l'ulp. Pnljihite and Paper Mill Workors. a' organization which Is part of the America' Federation of I^ibor. published in all the paiKTB last week, and also call your at i- ntion to the fact that every one of th«" s*\enty-thr«f> men employed in the i" 1 ' 1 ' has declared over )ii' own sisniaiure his opmii.n of tne mv an employer. I cannot find iii your record, much as you hr.ast of it, that you have ever been in any place or maiiner "an employer of labor. and I am entirely willing to leave my fellow • "tut"!:.-- to choose with regard to my labor record between the unsolicited and unani mous testimony of the contented men who work for me and the charges which you so flippantly and (rraandieaal] make. Every intelligent nan in the state knows, jor should know, tl-at the rights of labor will be safer in the hands of a man whose life has been spent in a small factory town, surrounded by the atmosphere of content ed men ho labor, rather than in the hands of the cold and raVuK-itlnp corporation law yer, whose sympathy for labor Is never oven suspected until h*» seeks public office To your question twelve, permit me to say that I do not favor the repeal of the anti camblinjr laws, recently placed upon the statute books of the state. Mr. Siimson's Fee*. j And now. havlnp answered every ques tion that even your necessity suppested, may I conclude by Faylnp that your ef forts to draw me into the position of ex plaining thtnas which do not exist in my record come with bat ill grace from a man who so recently reslcned a place under the federal government, at $10,000 a year, to im mediately take a special retainer from which, for pan. of his time, lip drew from the jrnvorrtTnent S-^.<VK> in fifteen months for the ■me work for which he could have received a? salary hut $12,500. Your promises of economy in administra tion are ridiculous, in view of that fact alone, unless you wish to apply economy in every case" except that which affects your own personal fortune. You ask far an opportunity as Governor to administer the affairs of the state., but in the case of the Supar Trust, where you were acting- for the public, you collected only about C.000.000. whereas the counsel for' the bras* admitted a liability of $9. ..>.<•«.' Is that •} - strongest certificate you can offer for the efficiency which you would display In the business affairs of the state? You left for your successor In office the ' task of indictlripr John E. Parsons, father ! of tile Susar Trust, and of your nomina tor's intimate friend, Herbert Parsons, and the other directors of the trust, in that i way permitting the statute of limitation i to run in their favor and saving them from the consequence of crime. I wonder if this in the best proof that can be a,| ran of your impartiality In office: The Sugar Trust Case. You have mafl* no »xplanation of the fact that the National Sugar Company, for which your firm was counsel, was per mitted to settle for defrauding the govern . ment at practically its own figures, with no attempt made to punish them, by for feiture, and with no indictments of their officers who were euiltv of such frauds. Were they less Rui!ty because you were their counsel ling much of the time m which the frauds were committed? Possibly that was but further evidence of the fairness. Impartiality and efficiency of which you have made such boasts. It seems to me that if you are really anxious to ie: the people know all about : your connections with the svCnr business you mipht not hesitate to tell what the i amount of your fees will be In the H»-ik» and Gerbracht supar cases in which your associate. 111 Dennison. says no fees have yet been paid to you. Can it be that in these matter* you are to receive another r.,CI(K'r .,CI(K' fee" I take it. of course, that you are noi tryinp to dodpe these matters until after November 5. and that you who pretend to pf-ek enlightenment, arc perfectly willing to pive tlie people any information having to do with your record in public office, that *ould enable them to judpe fairlj what they mipht expect or you 1 " they called \ you for the first time in your life to an elective office.. j CURRAN STIRS UP FORNES Congressman, However, Doesn't Say He Will Visit 1 lth District.

ROOSEVELT APPEALS TO HIS FELLOW CHENS Sets Forth in Contrast Charac ters of the Opposing Candi dates and Their Records. CONFIDENT AS TO RESULT But Urges United Support for Stimson in Fight on Corrup tion, Tammany and Wall Street. Theodore Roosevelt, expreßPlnc conn- ! dence in the success of the Republican ticket, but anxious that nothing should be left undone to place the issues fairly and squarely before the voters, issued a final pre-election statement at midnight, reviewing the campaign and pleading with his fellow citizens to down the coal ition of "Wall Street and the interests." The statement compares the records of the two candidates for Governor, the organizations back of them, and sums J up the issues as battle between right and wrong. Mr. Roosevelt's statement follows: As a citizen of this state, jealous of its I I honor and Its good name and earnestly so licitous for the welfare of all its people. 1 ! ■wish to make a final appeal to all my fel low citizens* to stand for Henry L. Stimson j in this tight, which he Is waging so gnl- 1 lantly for clean and honest politics and for genuine popular rule. I regard this as far , more than a mere party contest. I appeal not only to Republicans, for I feel that in this contest we have the right to appeal ■ just as strongly to all upright and far sighted men. Democrats and independents no less than Republicans. ' The election next Tuesday turns on vital j moral Questions affecting the whole future j of this state and of our people, and, there- , fore it is our right and our duty to appeal to the whole body of honest citizens, irre spective of party ties. The powerful and crooked political organization against which we are pitted is now working hand and glove with all the great sinister inter ests of crooked finance, the. breath of whose nostrils i.- special privilege. The sinister financial interests fatten on polit leal corruption and the bip»vtisan alliance between them and Tammany Hall i s fraught with the gravest menace to the 1 welfare of the plain people of the state. Against this bipartisanship of corrupt politics and corrupt finance we have a right ] to expect the whole hearted non-partisan j support of all honest citizens, and particu- i larly of all men who believe in honest poli tics and honest business. ; i Premises Square with Record. i Mr. Stimson has made his campaign fear lessly and sincerely in the open; his prom- ; Ism square with his record: he has stated j his position on every question. Mr. Dix de- ; I rives bis sole importance from the fact : tl at Mr. Murphy picked him as being the man most suitable to carry out the pur- I poses of Tammany Hall: he has no pub ' lie record, and he lias not dared to state; his position fully and freely on a single | vital question. He dared not answer Stim- '> ' son's questions, and could not frame a | question which Stimson would fear to an- i swer. '■ j Mr. Stimson. as District Attorney, made j a record which no other man in that position has ever approached.

"The first eight noun went into effect in : that industry eight or nine years ago, but the Dix mills are still in the eleven or i thirteen hours, and the reason for that is I this: The Wall Paper Trust has been abie j to defeat every attempt that has ever been I made to organize its mills.

Washington, Nov. 6.— The vigorous grotrtn and progress of the country as reflected by the records of population and harvest* and the general conditions of international peace are things for which thanksgiving is especially due for the year 1910, accord ing to the annual Thanksgiving Day proc lamation, issued by President Taft to-day. The proclamation is as follows: Tl,is year of 1910 is drawing to ■ close. The records of population and harvests, which are the index of progress, show vig orous national growth and the health and prosperous well being of our communities throughout this land and m our posses sions beyond the seas. These blessings have not descended upon us in restricted measure, but overflow and abound. They are the blessings and bounty of God. We continue to be at peace with the rest of the world. In all essential matters our relations with other peoples are harmoni ous, with an ever-growing reality of friend liness and depth of recognition of mutual dependence. It is especially to be note*! that during the last year great progress has been achieved in the cause of arbitra tion and the peaceful settlement of Inter national disputes. _ _ _. Now therefore. I. William Howard Tar:. ■ President of the United States of America, in accordance with the wise custom of the i civil magistrate since the first settlements i tn this land and with the rule established i from the foundation of this government. ■ do appoint Thursday. November 24. 1910. as 1 a. day of national thanksgiving and prayer. enjoining the people upon that day to meet i in their churches for the praise of Almighty God and to return heartfelt thanks to Him for all His goodness and loving kindness. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. , Done at the city of Washington, this 1 5th day of November. in the year of our ■ Lord one thousand nine hundred and ten. and of the independence of the United States the one hundred and thirty-fifth.
