Dlnner at Aldine Club Develops
Unusual Sentiment for His
Promotion in City's
Service to Mayor.
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
"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
"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
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. Page declared the two
most strlklng thlngs abcut the caae.
and lt was notlceable that not a single
.peaker montioncd the name of Roaen
thal or Becker. were the rcvelatlons of
the underworld whlch Whltrnan lald
bare to the eye of the community, and
the promptness with which the chief
offenderB were eonvlcted.
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
High Praiaa for 8ubordinataa.
"Every man aaaociated wlth me ln
my office." he aald, "has trled to ba the
klnd of man that you gentlemen hav.
said I am."
Ha aaid the n.*n ln hia office had
be*a dolng the aama klnd of honest
and falthful work rlght aJong, and wlth
