DR. ABBOTT TAKES LEAD More Taffy and Less 'Epitaphy* His Text-Ouest in Reply Oives High Praise to Subordinates, to Courts and Grand and Petit Juries. Charles 8. Whitman, Distrlct At? torney. who "has deltvered." aa one speaker put It, recelved his flrst public spoken meed of praise for the work he has accompltshed, at a dlnner at the Aldine Club last night. Wlth the open lng of the after-dinner oratory Charles L. Patton, presldent of the club, an nounced that it was not the purpose of the club to launch any boom for any one, but ln splte of the warning the Idea hovered close to alrnost every word that was uttered that Whitman could and should finlsh as Mayor the Job of clvlc housecleaning he has started as Distrlct Attorney. Dr. Lyman Ahhott set the pace for the evi-nlng when he said ln his openlng wurds: "We have come not to praise, hut to pledge him our support in the service whlch he ls to rend*r to hls clty in the future." Remarklng, then. that he lntended to speak plalnly, Dr. Abbott spoke of the obstacles whlch Mr. Whitman had sur mounted. There was porll to life in the Job, he said, but lt was not that which appealed to him as the greatest ob stacl*. "Wo Reaponded to Him.'" "It was that thls man stood ficing the police?the chllliress and reserve, lf not the opposltion, of the Mayor af the clty, and fought for what was right nnd clean untll our .ritrage was BJ*0?B**l by hls courajre und we re spondod to him." Robert Undcrwood Johnson. who f-.l lowed Dr. Abbott, spoke rv?-n more plalnly what was evidently ln the mlnds of all the diner* when he ?aid: "Wa ar*? on the eve of h (ainp_!*rn whlch cannot be called polltlcal. It ls a cumpaign ln which we wlll be flprht I Ing for our llves, a war to rld oui _*lve? of thls great Incubus. It ls Idle to say that Tammany Hall im not re sponsible for the state of aft'airs that puts our city in the hnnds of the grafter. There are many fatallsts who seom to think that wo must alwuya he tied to this Jugjrernaut of lnlriulty. I tell you that the most appallins trilnf in thls whole affatr M that th* under world has believed lt lmposslble for protected vice to be exposed." Dr. Abbott, before hls polnted refer ence to the stand Mayor Oaynor tOOfe ln the early daya of the Ilecker case. drew a picture of what he rallr-d "th' lonellness of a great public offlcial." and declared that the great Uowi Of our civic Itfa ws8 to have a neighborly sort of public opinion whlch would shnv it. Kupport of such an offlcial ln his daily work. More "Taffy," Laaa "Epitaphy." He said he believed thoroughly in that sentiment expressed in the words, "A little more 'taffy' while we llvc and a llttle less 'epitaphy' when we tlie." A great dramattc event llke thla, he aald, aroused the people so that they re sponded. but ordinarlly such a mun as Whitman fought graft and dishonor in the city's life wlthout any dramatic surroundlngs, and fought it practlcully aJone. "Real Justlca Include* wTath against crlme, not once in a while, but pcr manent and forceful," the doctor Bald, and he believed that preachers should emphaalze that thought from their pul pits. Edward J. Wheeler called the atten tlon of the gutherlng to the fact that Whitman was born ln Berea. Ohlo, which he called "the grittiest place on <_rth." He explain*d that tlie whole town was one lmmense Bandstone quarry. and oplned that Whitman must have iBBBlhll a blg ahare of it early ln hia career. Walter H.

Mr Whitman prefaced hlB address with the nmark that lt waa dlfflcult to nay anythlng after what he had been llataning to. and then proceoded to ahove over all poaelble credit to hls asaociatea ln the Diatrict Attorney' offlca. to the courta. to the grand and petlt Jurles, and ev?n to "some of" the police.
