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
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
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
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
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
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
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."
