THE CARRINGTON PUBLISHING CO. SPIRITEDREPLY Roosevelt Answers the Criti cisms of His Recent Ref erence to' Mover and Haywood, TAKES OBJECTORS TO TASK THEY, NOT HE, ARE TRYING TO INFLUENCE JVSTICE. Might as Well Accuse Him of the Same In the Suits Against Harrlan Pro foundly Indifferent to Condemnation for His Criticisms of Undesirable Types of Citizens, Regardless of the ' Power of Bither Labor or Capital Did Not Express Any Opinion as to Whether the Accused Men Were Guilty of the Slurder of Governor Steunenberg Will Stand for Justice and a "Square Deal," Whether Man IIiim Riches or Labor Behind Him. "Washington, April 23. In a letter ad dressed to Honore Jaxon of Chicago, chairman of the "Cook county Moyer Haywood conference," made public to day, President Roosevelt replied to the criticisms of his recent letter In which he referred to Moyer and Haywood, of ficials of the Western Federation of Miners, charged with implication in the murder of former Governor Stern berg of Idaho, as "undesirable citizens." The president says he regrets any body of men should so far forget their duty to their country as to, by formation of societies and in other ways, endeavor to influence Justice and coerce court or jury; that they, not he, are trying to Influence justice and he condemns wht he calls their flagrant improprie ty in the matter. He says that he in dicated no opinion as to their guilt of the gteurienberg murder, but that It was a simple absurdity to suppose that because a man is on trial he is free rfrom criticism as to his manner of life. )He says he might as well be accused of Wing to influence - the suits against Harrlman, some of whose friends had also criticised him. He says that Moy er and Haywood stand as representa tives of those who habitually appear as guilty of Incitement to, or apology for bloodshed, and violence. He added that he was profoundly Indifferent to the condemnation of him for his criticisms of the undesirable types of citizens, re gardless of the power of either labor or capital. " The letter follows: "April 22, 1907. Dear sir: I have re ceived your letter of the 19th inst, In which you enclose the draft of the formal letter which is to follow. I have been notified that several delegations, bearing similar requests are on the way hither. In the letter to you, on behalf of the Cook county Moyer-Haywood conference, protest against certain lan guage I used in a recent letter In the case of the trial for murder of Messrs. Moyer and Haywood. I entirely agree with you that it is improper to endeav or to influence the course of Justice, whether by threats or in any similar manner. For this reason I have re gretted most deeply the action of such organizations as your own in undertak ing to accomplish this very result in the very case of which you speak. For instance, your letter is headed: "Cook County Moyer-Haywood-Pettibone Con ference,' with headlines: "Death can not, will not and shall not claim our brothers." This shows that you and your associates are not demanding a fair trial, or working for a fair trial, but are announcing In advance that the verdict shall only be one way, and that you will not tolerate any other verdict. Such action is flagrant in its improprie ty, and I join heartily in condemning it. ... . "But It is a simple absurdity to sup pose that because any man is on trial for a given offense he Is therefore to be freed from all criticisms upon his general conduct and manner in life. In my letter, to which you object, I refer red to a certain prominent financier, Mr. Harrinian, on the one hand, and to Messrs. Moyer, Haywood and Debs on the other, as being equally undesirable citizens. It is as foolish to assert that this was designed to influence the trial of Moyer and Haywood, as to assert that it was designed to influence the suits that have ibeen brought against Mr Harrlman. I neither expressed nor indicated any opinion as to whether Messrs. Moyer and Haywood were guilty of the murder of Governor Stuenenberg. If they are guilty they certainly ought to be punished. If they are not guilty they certainly ought not to be puuished. "But no possible outcome either or the trial or the suits can affect my judgment as to the undesirabillty of the type of citizenship of those whom I mentioned. Messrs. Moyer, Haywood and Debs stand as representatives of those men who have done as much to discredit the labor movement as the worst speculative financiers or most unscrupulous employers of labor and debauchera of legislatures have done to discredit honest capitalists and fair dealing business men. "They stand as the representatives of these men, who by their public ut terances and manifestoes, by the ut terances of the papers they control or (Continued on Second Page.) BAD STEEL BAILS THE CAVSE. Many of the Distastrous Train Wrecks Due to Them. Chicago, April 23. Bad steel rails ars causing many of the disastrous wrecks on American railways, according to a statement made to-day by some of the most prominent operating officials in the United States, who are in Chicago attending the spring meeting of the American Railway association. Aided by chemists and metallurgists, a com mittee has investigated this matter and has come to the conclusion that an ex ceedingly dangerous percentage of the steel rails manufactured to-day have the latent paw which causes them to snap and break under the impact of a fast train.

Another Step In the Clearing; up of the Disappearance of Securities Valued at About $140,000 From the Trust Company of America In New York $20,000 Worth Found In His Room at the Manhattan Club.

Den nett, a broker of 42 Wall street, who was formerly prominent in Boston fi nancial circles. William O. Douglass, an assistant loan clerk for the trust company, is already under arrest, charged with the theft of the bonds and the warrant upon which Dennett is detained by detectives alleges the re ceiving of stolen goods. It is charged that he received sixty-one bonds of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Rail way company, each valued at 1,000, and of the Issue of May 1, 193. It is complained, also, that Dennett knew that the bonds were stolen when ho accepted them. The arrest of the broker had been forecasted because of charges preferred to the police by. officers of the trust company after their . investigation of the larceny and because of the alleged recovery of $20,000 worth of the mis- sing securities in Dennett's room at the Manhattan club. After being ex amined at the detective bureau, Den nett was placed in a cell for the night. He was visited by his attorney, Forbes J. Hennessy who said on leaving: "Neither I nor Mr. Dennett will make any statement to-night. One, however, will be issued to-morrow." . The lawyer added that no attempt would be made to secure ball to-night. Dennett will be given a hearing to morrow, at which time Douglass will appear for examination.

STEVENS TO SiAKE AN INVENTORY FOR R. R. CO. FORMER PANAMA CANAL ENGIN EER'S ENGAGEMENT BY CONSOLIDATED. To Appraise Not Only the Road Bed and Equipment but the Greut Hold ings of Real Estate in New York and Lower New England, Including Bos tonResults Expected to Show a Very Great Increase Upon the Sum of 141,80S,850 Given in the Last Fiscal Report. The physical growth of the New York, 'New Haven and Hartford rail road system now reaching out over four states Is to be brought out soon by an official inventory and appraisal which there is high authority for stating will be Imade by John F. Stevens, former chief engineer in charge of the Panama canal work. The New Haven road, dating from its original opening for op eration, is now more than fifty years old and especially during the last twen ty years its growth has been char acterized not merely by increased road bed and equipment but by great pur chases of real estate in the cities of New York and lower New England, inducting Boston. The purchases have been strikingly large at Boston where the South station has been built at a cost of about $15,000,000 including land and purchases much larger made in New York city and suburbs, particular ly under the presidency of Charles P. Clark, who besides the large properties at the Harlem terminal bought the great piece of real estate above West chester, which he called' his "cornfield.' The appraisal of Mr. Stevens, it is understood, will include all the realty of the company and Its equipment, both owned and controlled, and on Its leased as well as Its main lines. In the an nual report of the company for the last fiscal year the actual cost of its rail road properties, Including rolling stock and real estate, was returned at $141, 603,950, and its total assets of all kinds at $239,486,355. These returns were cer tified for the first time by a firm of chartered accountants. The direct ap praisal of the realty is expected to show a very great increase upon these figures owing not merely to the natural growth of values, but later acquisitions In the way of improvements and the land for them, and also the large plants of th Connecticut Railway and Lighting com pany in Connecticut and the Rhode Is land street railway system.

IAFI NET TO CANCEL TRIP TO PHILIPPINES SIGNIFICANT POINT DEVELOPS IN AN INTERVIEW IN WASHINGTON. His Intention Is to Sail for the Islands September 1 Admits This After Long Conference With President Sets at Ilest Report That He Would Give Up the Voyage to Take the Stump In Ohio Not Prepared to Say What He Will Do About Foraker's Challenge. Washington, April 23. Returning to Washington after a month's absence, Secretary Taft to-day resumed his rou- I tine duties at the war department. The fact that it was cabinet day made it necessary for him to cut short the time allowed to callers and to postpone until a more convenient moment the consul tations he desired to have with General Bell, chief of staff, and the, other of ficials of the department. It is doubtful if, in his Washington experience, the secretary has -had to deal with more newspaper men than he saw to-day. Of course they were in terested in his southern journey, but they were mainly desirous to learn just what the secretary Intended to do in answer to the challenge which Senator Foraker had Issued in regard to the contest in Ohio. The secretary, how ever, frankly told his newspaper cal lers that he was under the disadvan tage of a considerable absence from the country, with only scanty news of. he Important political events that naa occurred. He 4 id not feel under the circumstances, that it was proper for him to make any kind of statement as to his political opinion's and plans. One point devfeioped in the course of the talk with the newspaper men that might be regarded as significant in view of the fact that it has been re ported he had intended to cancel his proposed Philippine trip in order to go on the stump in Ohio. Replying to a direct- Inquiry, the sec retary stated that it is his intention to sail for the Phlliplnes about September 1, next. This statement was made, too, after the secretary had spent nearly two hours in close conference with the President. For, after atendlng his first cabinet meeting in many weeks, Secre tary Taft was invited by the President to remain at the White House for luncheon and that time was spent in a free discussion,, not. only of.the secre tary's observance in his southern trip, but also of the political developments here In his absence and of the policies to be pursued in the future. What the plans are was riot disclosed, but after the luncheon the secretary reiterated his. statement of last night that he intended to go to Ohio next Friday and would make three speeches while away from Washington, one long cne at Cincinnati on the occasion of the1 meeting of the Western Federation of the Yale Clubs, one at Dayton at the cornerstone laying of the Young Men s Christian association, and another at Cincinnati before the Business Men's club. But, the secretary added, with a smile, that none of thehe speeches would bj in any sense political. Later in the summer he expects to go to Iowa and to Minnesota, in each case to address the state universities, but the secretary did not say that these addresses would be non-political. He was wanted in Oklahoma, and he said he would go If he could. He had been told that a bitter political fight was to be waged there, and If he went into the new state he would have to enter that fight. He also was requested to go into South Dakota on a purely political tour, and possibly he would make one speech at Fort Meade. Nothing, how ever, would probably prevent him from going to the Philippines in September. The secretary was willing to talk freely about conditions on the isthmus, but most of his statements had been included in the resume of his trip given to the newspapers last night. One new print of interest was that Chief En gineer Gotthals had suggested that the concrete wcrk on the canal construc tion should be done by contract, al though that method was not feasible just now for the excavation.
