Declares There is No Foundation foi the Criticina Regarding Negro Preferment. The following letter written by the Presi deat to Ctark Howell. editor of the Atiants Cdnstttution, was given out at the Whit4 House today: " - WHITE HOUSP. Washington, Abruary 24, 1908 My Dear Mr. Howell: I have a high opinion of the gentlemai you mention, and if the opportunity occurs I shall be glad to do anything I can fos him. Now as to what you. may concerning fed eral appointments in the south. Frankly, it seems to me that my appointments speal for themselves and that my policy is self explanatory. So far from feeling that they need the slightest apology or justifcation, my position is that on the strength of wllat I have done I have the right to claim the support of all good citizens who wish not only a high standard of federal service but fair and equitable dealing to the south as well as to the north,, and a policy of con sistent justice and good will toward all men. In making appointments I have sought to consider the feelings of the people of each locality so far as I could consistently do sc without sacrificing principle. The prime tests ? have applied have been those of character, fitness and ability, and when ] have been dissatisfied with what has been offered within my own party lines I have without hestitation gone to the opposite party-and you are of course aware that I have repeatedly done this in your own state of Georgia. I oertainiy- cannot treat mere color as a permanent bar'to holding diloe, any more then I could so treat creed or btrthplace-always provided that in othei respects the applicant or incumbent is a worthy and well-behaved American citizen. Just as little will I treat it as conferring a right to hold office. I have scant tr-mpathy with the mere doctrinaire, with the man of mere theory who refuses to face facti; but do you not think that in the long run it is safer for everybody if we act on the mottc "all men up," rather than that of "some men down?" Judge by His Acts. I ask you to judge not by what I say, but by what during the last seventeen months I have actually done. In your own state of Georgia you are competent to judge fror your own experience. Ia.thp. great bulk of the cases I have reappointedt President Mc Kinley's appointees. The- changes I have made, such as that in the:potmastershil at Athens and in the surveyorship at At lanta, were, as I think you will agree, cnanges for the bettes:. and not for the worse. It happens that in.each of these offices I have appointed a swhite man tc succeed a colored man.- In South Carolina I have similarly appointed :a white post master to succeed a colored postmaster. Again, in South Carolina.I have nominated a colored man to fill a vacancy in the posi tion of collector of the port of Cnarleston, just as in Georgia I have rteappointed the colored man who is now serving as col lector of the port of Savan h. Both are fit men. Why the appointtnent of one should cause any more excitement than the appointment of the other I an wholly at a loss to imagine. As I am writing to a man of keen and trained inteIlgen.c I need hardly say that to coniedf either of these appointments, or any .r alt my other ap pointments, or my aotons in upholding the law at Indianola, with such questions as "social equality" and "negro domination" Is as absurd as to connect them with the nebular hypothesis or the theory of atoms. I have consulted freely with your owrn senators and congressmen as to the char acter and capac y of ann appointee in Georgia concerning whom there was quea tion. My party advisers in the state have been Major Hanson of Macon, Mr. Walter Johnson of Atlanta-both of them ex-con federate soldiers-,and Mr. Harry Stillwel Edwards, also of liacon. I believe you will agree with me that in no state would it be possible to find gentlemen abler and more upright or better qualified to fill the posi tions they have filled with reference to me. In every instance where these gentlemen have united in making a recommendation I have been able to follow their advice. Am I not right in saying that the federal office holders whom I have appointed throughout your state are as a body of men and women of a high order of efficiency and integrity -you know of any federal offce holder in Georgia of whom this is qaot true pray let me know at once. I will welcome testi mony from you or from any other reputabie citizen which will teno to show that a given public offcer is unworthy; and, jnost emphatically, short will be the shrif of Iany one whose lack of worth is proven. Incidentally I may mention that a large ppercentage of the incumbents of federal offces in Georgia under me are, as I undel' stand It, of your own political faith. B3ut they are su.pported by me in every way as long as they continue to render good and faithful service to the public. Same in Other States. This is true of your own state, and by applying to Mr. Thomas Nelson- Page of Virginia. to Gen. Basil Duke of Kentucky, to Mr. George Crawford of Tennessee, to Mr. John McIlhenny of Louisiana, to Judgje Jonee of Alabama and -Mr. IEdgar L. Wilson of Mineissippi, all of them democrats and all of them men of the highest standing in their respec tive communities, you will find that what I have done in Georgia stand. not as the exception, but as the rule, for what I haite done throughout the south. I have good Preason to believe that myr appointees in the different states mentioned'.afld as the sun pof the parts is the whole, necessarily in the south at large-represent not merely an improvement upon those whose places they took, but, upon the whole, a higher stand ard of federal service than has hitherto been Iattained in the communities in question. may add that the proportion of colored men pamong these new appointees Is only about one in a hundred. "In view of all these facts I have hee.a Ssurprised and somewhat 'paIned at what seems to' me the incomprehxensible outc'y in the south about my-ation's-an outcry Iapparently started ip f ~Kork for rea sons wholly unconnecc hthe ques' tion nominally at. issu ~ m concerned at the attitude thus ~1 a o many of the southern people; bdt" *.n not in the least angry, and still es'!4 this att:tude have the effect of mk te swerve oni hair's breadth to' -~4or the other from the course I edW'nf~ro out-the course I have consisterL - i'oWed in the pgst and shall consis follow in thei future.

SMITH DEAD ONE OF THE FAXOUS CIVIL WAE - OMMANDEB& Passed Away at His Home in Phila delphia at the Age of Eighlty Years. A dispatch from Philadelphia yesterday says: Major General William Farrar Smith., of whom General Grant said, "'Baldy' Smith is the only man competent to suc ceed me in the command of the army," died at his home in this city late last night. Although In his eightieth year, General Smith had continued in the active perform sance of his duties as government engineer In charge of the river and harbor work for Maryland and Delaware until a year ago. The cold which finally resulted in his death was contracted last November. For the last ten years of his life General Smith was before the public as the prin cipal 'igure in the long controvery~ over the. question whether he or General Rosecrans originated the plan by which the Army of the Cumberland was relieved In October, 1803, by the opening of the river line from Chattanooga to Bridgeport by way of Brown's Ferry. This movement saved the Union forces from starvation, and capture. Nearly thirty years after the BroWh'e Fer ry expedition, General Rosecrans, in. a magazine article. claimed the credit for the move. General Smith replied In an article, in which he declared that he had organized the expedition. The controversy was not settled until two years ago, when a board of army officers, for whose appointment General Smith had asked, decided that the credit was due to Rosecrans, and that Gen eral Smith had no share In the maneuvers. General Smith replied in a long review of the board's findings, winding u.p with the declaration that, while every scrap of evi dnce In his favor had been rejected, all In favor of Rosecrans had been accepted. In 1867, after twenty-.t,wo years of active service. Genemal Smith resigned from the army. He :had married Miss Sarah Lyon of New York, in 1860, and after the war he went to .that city to live. He was mode president of the board of polHee commission ers In 1875, a posit.ion subsequently fi-led by President Roosevelt. General Smith Wlas a native of St. Abbans, Vt. He was appointed to the Military Acad emy at West Point In 1841, aind at gradua tion was fourth In 'the class of '45. In the same class were Fitz John Porter and Gor don Graager. He was commissioned a EeC ond lieutenent in the topographical engi neers, and from November, 1846, to August, 1848, be was acting as assistant professor of maa.thienmtlics at the West Poinit Acade my. Afterward he was engaged In the sur vey of the Lakee Superior region, and of the military rmd to California, and served on the Mexican boundary conimssion. He had risen to the rank of captain, and was serv ing as secretary of 'the lHgh.thouse board alt Washington whien 'te war of the rebellion broke oult. When the President called for volunteers Captain Smnitih o'btaji'ed leave of absence and .was given by the state autori ties of Vermont commoand of the 3d Ver mont Regimemi. He was with that regi ment In the firsit batitle olf Bui Run, and afterward assisted In reorganIsing .the de feted Uioni army. He was promoted to be braer general of volunteers In August. 1861, and was soon afterward assigned to the ommnand oaf a division. He assisted General McClellan In organiz ing the Army of the Potomac.

Mean while General Smith had been promoted to be major general of volunteers, and had received several grades by brevet for gal lant and meritorious service. At the close of the war the Eighteenth Corps was con solidated with the Tenth, and General Smith was sent to New York city to await orders. In 1865 he resigned from the volun teer service, and in 1867 from tEe regular. army. For several years he was president of the International Telegraph Company. Fifteen years ago General Smith was placed in cberge of the river improvements in Delaware and Maryland, and then came to Phiadelpa to live. "Baldy" Sith was the name by which the general was best known. His prema ture baldness was responsible for the title. Mrs. Smith died three years ago. The general leaves a daughter and a son, Miss Clara Farrar Smith and Stuart Farrar Smith, an assistant naval construotor. The funeral services will be held at St. Ste phen's Church Tuesday sorning. The only organization to which General Smith belonged was the Sons of the Revb lution. He bad no connection with the Grand Army. With the death of General Smith the number of living commanders of arrly corps in the civil war is reduced to Sour. GENFERAL MIX-UP. Defendants in Free-for-All Row Are Brought Into Court. A free-for-al fight, in which two men were stabbed with a butcher knife, one woman received a bladk eye, and another woman bad her scalp cut open with a chair, occurred In Marksd court southeast about 6 o'clock Saturday night, and was only brought to an end by the timely ar riv'al of Policemen Cullinane and MarcosoB, who bad their heads full in settling' the dispute. The affair originated in a dispute be tween George Barnes and Luther and Frank Jackson, colored, and resulted in Barnes receiving a stab wound on the shoulder, and Harry Mathews, colored, who took a hand with the intention of stopping the fight, was also stabbed. The fighting became general, and Ha,ttie Jace son, wire of Luther, was struck over the head with a chair, which indicted a scalp wound-, and Rosie West received an Injury from a kick under the left eye. The affair wan partly aired in the Police Court this afternoon, when Luther Jack son was given the alternative by Judge Kimball of paying a fine of $50 or remain ing In jail for six nifnths for kicking' the West woman in the eye. Ha and his brother Frank were also charged jointly on the same information with ssaulting Barnes with a butcher knife, but the case was continued until a later date, because Barnes was unable to leave the hospital today. The West woman and Hattie Jackson stood trial before Judge Scott on a charge of disorderly conduct, which resulted in acquittal for the first named, while Hattie will be deprived of her liberty for fifteen days in default of a fine of $5 levied on her by the court. Mathews and Shelton, who were also charged with disorderly conduct, forfeited $5 collateral. Federation of Women's Clubs.
