You keep out. 1 can take care of this myself, going to tTfiat tfW PecpCe fTCay Knew The Citizen yesterday published the truth about the resignation of H. J. Hagerman asked for by Theodore Roosevelt, president of the United States. Needless to say the truth hurt. The president's letter was a cold, clear, concise statement of facts, undeniable and unanswerable. The Citizen could have published the letter previously, but It preferred to Rive Mr. Hagermaji and the Albuquerque Morning Journal a chance to publish the real truth and retire gracefully. They did not take advantage of the opportunity and hence The Citizen took this occasion to place the matter In Its true light. This was done mainly to put the actions of the president In the right light before the people of this territoryi He has been maligned by the Morning Journal and other Hagerman anti-republican papers; called a fool a dupe, a corrupt politician, a liar and a few other choice names which these papers are accustomed to apply to every one not In strict accord with them. Therefore In publishing this letter The Citizen violated the confidence of no" one and did an act of Justice to President Roosevelt, the people of New Mexico and to Mr. Hagerman, ex-governor. The Journal states correctly that Mr. Hagerman did not make the letter public. Of this there can be no doubt. He feared to do so. The Morning Journal charges The Citizen or a vague "some one else" with the theft of the letter from the White House. In doing this the Journal Is committing its old error of Judging others by Itself. The Morning Journal then tries to leave Mr. Hagerman In possession of a little dignity by publishing his babyish reply to the president. The letter Is so similar to some of the matter published from time to time In that paper that it appears as though It might have been written In the office of the Morning Journal with the assistance of the former attorney general, W. C. Reid. It has all the ear maiks. For Instance, It does not state a single fact, but Is replete with hints of dark crime against good government and carefully veiled reflections upon the Integrity of others without a word of proof to substantiate them. This reply of Mr. Hagerman's proves nothing. It explains nothing. It were better for Mr. Hagennan had he continued silent. The beBt he could have done would have been to have taken his failure as a public officer with the best grace possible. The publication of the president's letter, as a Hagerman supporter this morning remarked: "simply proves that the morning paper has not furnished us with the truth." Mr. Hagerman has had all the best of It from the press of the south- vest. The republican papers have endeavored to refrain from any mention of him In a manner which might be construed as kicking the under dog. As the president announced a good many weeks ago, the Hagerman affair "was a closed Incident." Out of a feeling of fair play the republican papers of New Mexico un dertook to treat it as such. Had Mr. Hagerman and his morning paper possessed one lota of Judgment they would have understood and have acted accordingly. Instead, they continued to harrass a tired public with babyish cries, at tacking right and left every onefrom the president to private citizens "ofNew Mexico who cared little enough about Mr. Hagerman or his doings as a prl fate citizen. The result was that they forced The Citizen to publish the full and com plete statement of the president's reason for ousting Mr. Hagerman. in de fense of President Roosevelt, the republican party and the territory of New Mexico. I ' At stated yesteraay. the president's letter needed no explanation. It spoke for itself lrv.no uncertain tones. Mr. Hagerman's antics as governor f New Mexico have now been laid bare in their true light and he Is left without further recourse, through his own lack of Judgment which has characterized his every official act. President Roosevelt has been placed In the right light and any fair-minded man can Judge for himself. Of late the Morning Journal has been systematically hammering at the public in an effort to secure the organization of so-called good government leagues throughout New Mexico. This effort has been unavailing. The yurpose and intent of the Morning Journal is plain. Relieving that it has deceived enough people into believing that H. 3. Hagerman was a white winged martyr to the cause of good government, It plans to get some sort Of an Independent organization behind him, secure the endorsement of the democrats and make a fight for the delegateshlp under false colors. i That the plan will never be carried Into effect is only too apparent. In His letter to the governor. President Roosevelt in a kind, yet Just manner enters fully Into every point of controversy of the Hagerman regime. He points out clearly and precisely Just where Hagerman failed In his duty. He does not enter Into Hagerman's motives out of a feeling of kind nesa for the youj.g man who made such a botch of his first public office. He states, however, that If he were to have Judged Hagerman by the motives most apparent, he would have removed him and not have requested him to resign. While in the kindliest and most Just spirit, as Is apparent in every line the letter is even then a scathing rebuke. In the face of the statements made by the president in that letter It will no. longer apear as the Morning Journal tried to make It appear, that Theodore Roosevelt had been grossly deceived through his own lack of mental capacity. v As before stated. The Citizen does not feel that one word it can add will serve to better explain the letter in question. '. At the same time in the fuce of the malicious misrepresentations on the part of the Morning Journal and other anti-republican papers, It cannot help but call attention to a few salient features of the letter. For Instance, the president has been held up to the public by the Morn lng Journal and Its PecoB edition, the Roswell Record, as a fool, a liar, a buying, trading politician and the victim of plotting, Intriguing office-seekers, t In his letter he shows plainly and undlsputably that he knew what he was doing and acted In. accordance with the "square deal," of which he Is a real exponent. He does not neglect to praise Hagerman where he thought praise was due, but In summing up, he states positively that on the whole, Hagerman was a most unsatisfactory governor a man unqualified to fill a position of such trust. Incidentally, It will be noted that the president does not mince words In reference to the foolish advice given Hagerman by his attorney general W. C. Reid, who tried to shield Hagerman by admitting that "he did it.' If there is a real martyr In the whole amusing affair, It would appear that W. C". Reid was "IT." At least he says he was. The president while speaking of the land deal, In which Hagerman In VOlved himself, clearly showed up the motives of the boy executive In de llverlng the deeds In question. He did not comment unreasonably, he li not censure. He stated facts, clear, hard, cold facts, and let it go at that No more was reeded. He calls attention to the buying of the upper house of the leglslatur with public cff.ces. As he stated, Mr. Hagerman could offer no explanation to fit the act. Incidentally the president indicates that despite the fact that he was supposed to have been to grievously deceived, be was well aware that Mr. Hagerman completed the land deal In order to secure the endorsement and support of certitjii democratic politicians, to which he was continually trucklriR. Mr. Hagerman did not explain that little matter either. Hut the president states that he found it necessary to consider only one thing In order to be convinced that Hagerman was not a good governor that was the r( port of the department of Justice upon the rand deal. These are a few points upon which the Morning Journal ami the Hagerman-lleld Blunderbund have not wanted much eloquence. The president In his usual fearless manner stated the truth about them and riot hint? but the truth. It Is therefore Justice to Theodore Roosevelt and to the p opie of this territory that the truth should be known. The Citizen has made public the facts and it is willing to stand where it has always stood, for the people, the republican party, Theodore Roosevelt and the "Square Ileal."

The mis sive was simple, but seriously dan gerous for a young girl: 'Dear Miss Brooks: It would be most convenient to meet at lunch at the Board street hotel at 2 today. With deep regard, lachlan Trovver." I want to tell you, papa, said Florence. Think I don't know about such things? So this Is why you've got tlf-kets every week for Trower a stock company. Nice place to meet an actor, at a hotel " But, papa, you don i I don't, eh? Anything I don't know about actorM meeting young girls Why don't you let me tell you?" 'The letter doesn't need any Its or huts to make the meaning differ ent. The girl burst out crying, like her mother. "Give me the letter. She handed It over. "I forbid you to meet him. Un derstand?" "If I don't " "If you do, I'll know It." She fled upstairs. I started for the office. I couldn't read the morning paper for anger. 1 wanted to lick Iachlan Trower. In the office I tried to be civil to the stenographer, but she did double work out of very fear. People al ways act so foolishly when I'm angry. made up my mind to see Trower myself. 1 wouldn't mince matters. It was 2:15 when an usher direct ed me to Trower's table. A woman was sitting beside him. Picked up another girl," thought I. "I know these actors." He arose, all the women looking at him. My revenge waa near. 'I have not the pleasure of your acquaintance," said he. 1 m Florence s rather, I said loud enough for the woman to hear. 'Florence s? 'Can't remember, eh? Woefully forgetful." 'What do you mean, sir? he ask ed. I could see the actor surging Into his gestures. He must fool the woman. 1 handed him the letter. 'That ylll explain what 1 mean. sir." The diners were watching. Some of the women feared a fight and looked ready to scream. "Ah, yes, said Trower, suavely. Couldn't the young woman come?" "Suppose I'd let her dine at a ho tel with an actor? I pronounced actor" the meanest way I could. Trower's eyes glared, his hands clutched. He was too well trained, however, to show perturbation. Gracefully he turned to the woman and said: "Mrs. Trower. pardon me for pre senting an Individual who evidently can think good or no one: Mrs. Trower arose and bowed. "So sorry Miss Brooks couldn't come. Some chump at the next table was laughing as if he had heard a de Ucious Joke. "Perhaps you'll explain the letter,' I remarked, bound not to let Trower get away so easily. "Not for your benefit, but to put me right before these people. Your daughter has written a successful play. I will start It in New York. I marvel at her talent, since she could not have Inherited It from the pater nal side." Nearly all the fool people were tittering. "Here Is the contract drawn up for her to sign. I pre sume you're too busy to take lunch with me. Good day, sir!" Trower let out a laugh one of those confounded stage laughs, and some kind of stillness got into the other Idiots. The law can't stop a man from making a fool of himself. I suppose 1 was one that day. Yet. why should an actor write a mysterious note to a young girl, purposely to get her father into some predicament? Why couldn't he have explained the pur pose of the meeting in the missive and not have Itt a. man go against the game I struck? 1 never will be able to endure actors. (P. S.
