Throughout the Questioning, Mollis be.

During the conversation with Morris.

"Positive! 00 1 will relate nothing

WASHINGTON, April 88. person.-.
I statement was issued
from the White house this
evening by President Taft he
fore leaving for Massachusetts,
in it h denies Colonel RoossvehVs alle

at a cabinet meeting had approved Mr.

Mi j: Ksevell In his speech at Wor-

referring to the harvester trust,
'As a matter of fact, Mr. Taft was
a member of my cabinet when this
Identical case was fully discussed ie-

Mr. Roos.. cit'ji rnemory is very
much at fault. I am authorised to
Fay by Mr Root and Secretary Wil
son, both of whom were members of
the cabinet at that time, that they
have no recollection whatever of ever
hearing the prosecution of the har
vester matter discussed In the cabi
net, and Mr. Root is very certain
that lie never saw or heard of Mr.
Herbert Knox Smith's letter to Mr.
Root until the date of September 21,
I88T. on the subject.
i am able to say the same thing.
So tar as ids recollection goes I never
heard the harvester trust matter
mentioned in any cabinet meeting
that I attended, and I can not be
mistaken in the statement that I
never saw or knew of Mr Herbert
Knox Smith s letter of September !
to the president until after my ad
ministration had begun, and the time
when the question of the prosecution
cams up ln 1910 or Itll, And I never
saw or read the letter until about
two months ago.
Tins correspondence shows that the
subject matter of the prosecution of
the International Harvester company
came before President ROQSSVSH on
August j:'. 1807, which Is the date of
his letter to Attorney General Bona

letter discussing the question and ad
