Pntll the final blast of the referee's whistle announced the cessation of hos tilities, there was a painful uncertainty in the hearts of Pennsylvania's 'sup porters.

CRUM Mr. Hoosevelt Declares That It Is Not His Intention to Appoint Unfit Men to Office He Will En deavor to Fay Regard to Wishes of the People of Each Locality, hut Cannot Consent to Take the Position That the Door of Hopo and Opportunity Is to Be Shut Upon Any Man Purely Upon Grounds of Eace or Color. By i;du-.ic Wire fiom The Aocljted I'rws. Washington, Nov. 27. The president has sent the following communication lo a prominent citizen of Charleston, S! C: lcioual, White House, Washington, Nov. 2tf. 1902. M Dear Sir: 1 am In receipt of your letter of Nov. 10, and of one from Mr. , under dato of Nov. 11, In refer ence to tho appointment of Dr. Crum as collector of tho port of Charleston. In your letter you make certain specific charges against Dr. Crum, tending to show his unfitness In several respects for tho ofllco sought. These charges are enti tled lo tho utmost consideration from mo and I shall go over them carefully before taking any action. After making these charges, you add, us a. further reason for opposition to him that he is colored, and after reciting the misdeeds that followed carpet bag rulo and negro domination In South Carolina, you say that "we havo swoin never again to submit to the rule of tho African, anil such an appointment as Dr. Crum to any f-uch ofilco forces us to protest unanimously against this In sult to the white blood," and you add that you understood me to say that I would never force a negro on such a community as yours. Mr. puts the objection of color-first,- suylng "First." he Is a colored man. and that of Itself ought to bar him from tho offlce." In view of thee last statements, I think I ought to make clear to you why I am concerned and pained by your making them nnd whnt my attitude Is as regards all such appointments. How any one could have gained the Idea that t had said I would not appoint reputable and upright colored men to ofilce, when ob jection was mado to them solely on ac count of their color, T confess I nm wholly unable to understand. At the tlmo of my visit to Charleston last spring, I had made, and slnco that tlmo I have made a number of such appointments from sev eral states In which thorr Is a consider able colored population. For example, I mado one such appointment In Mississippi, and another In Alabama, shortly beforo my visit to Charleston. T had at that tlmo appointed two colored men as judlc- l.nl mnirlsfr.itpa tn the TITMtrlnt nf Pntnm- bln. I have recently announced another j such appointment for Now Orleans, nnd have Just made one from Pennsylvania. The great majority of my appointments In every state have been of white men. North and South alike It has been my sedutous endeavor to appoint only men of high character nnd good capacity, wheth er white or black. But It has been my consistent policy in avery stato whero their numbers warranted It to recognize colored men of good repute and standing In making appointments to office. These appointments of colored men have In no state made more than a small proportion of the total number of appointments. I am uunblo to seo how I can legitimately be asked to make an exception to South Carolina. In South Carolina to the four most Important positions In the stato I have appointed three men and continued in ofllco a fourth, nil of them whlto men threo ot them originally fjobl Democrats two of them, as T oni inrormed, tho sons of Confederate soldiers. X have been In formed by tho citizens of Charleston whom T have met that these four men represent a high grade of public service. The Door of Hope, T do not Intend to appoint anv unlit man to olllce. So far as I legitimately can, I shall always endeavor to pay re gard to the wishes and feelings of tho peoplo of ench locality, but I cannot con sent to take tho position that tho door of hope tho door of opportunity Is to bo shut upon nnv man, no matter how wor thy, purely upon the grounds of uico or color. Such an attitude would, according to my convict Ions, lie fundamentally wrong, If, as you hold, tho great bulk of the colored peoplo ar not yet fit In point of character and lnlluence tn hold such positions, it seems to mo that it Is worth while putting a premium upon tho effort among them to achieve tho charac ter and standing which will lit thnm. Tho question of "negro domination" does not enter Into tho matter at all. It might a well bo asserted that when T was governor nf New York I sought to bring about nero domination n (hat stato because I appointed two colored men of good character nnd standing to responsible portions ono of I hem to n position paving a salary twice as largo us thut paid In tho olllco now under con sideration one of them as a director nf tho Buffalo Exposition, The question raised by you and Mr, In the statement to which T refer It simply whether It Is to be declared that under no circumstances shall any man of color, no matter how upright and honest, no mntter how good a citizen, no matter how fair In his dealings with all his follows, bo pcimltted to hold anv olllce under our government. I certainly cannot assumo uch an attitude, and you must permit mo to say that In my vlow It Is tin attitudo no man should assume, whether be looks nt It from the standpoint nf Die truo In terest of tho white man of the south or of (ho colored man of the south not to speak of any other ectlon of tho union. It seems to mo that It Is a good thing from every standpoint to let tho colored uuin know that If he shows in maiked degree the qualities of good citizenship the qualities which In a whlto man wo feel aro entitled to reward that ho will not bo cut off flrom all hope of similar reward. Wlthouunny rejsard as to what my decision may bo on the merits of this particular applicant for this particu lar place. I fcoljthnt I ought to let you know clearly r(y attltndo on the far broader question) talsed by you and Mr, '- : on nttltudc from which I havo not varied during my term ot olllce.. Faithfully yours.

Including National President Mitchell and Dis trict Presidents NIcliolls. Fahy and Duffy, had a conference a I. the Jermyn to piepare for the resumption of tho hearings before the commission nest Wednesday morning. That the conference was more than casual is attested by the fact that Dis trict President Nicholls was imexncct cdly summoned to it from Carhondnle, where hu and his family bad gone to spend the day with friends. The only thing clven out regarding' the confer ence wlis that it was for the prepar ation of testimony. The Next Witness. Attorney Darrow could not say defi nitely wliqthe next 'witness will be, after tho crogEJ-examinatlon of Rev. t)r.l Roberts Is completed. The likelihood Is, however, that it will he District Presl- dent Nicholls. This was the programme before the ten-day recess was tuken. The operators promise some interest ing figures regarding wages. One com pany. In anticipation of a controversy, kept tnbs on Its contract miners for five months, just preceding the strike, to ascei tain how much time they actu ally spent In the mines, and will show to the commission that the average hours of labor for n contract miner are not quite six a day. This will be In the nature of a surprise to tho miners of the company in question, ns they wero not nware that tabs were being kept on them. A lively discussion can be expected almost any day after the hearings are resumed. It will be precipitated by the operators directly or indirectly asking the commission to make an announce ment that the question of recognition Is In no wise befote the commission for action. Miners' Contention. Tlie miners' representatives will con tend that the uuestion is heroic the commission, because it was imu of the four matters In dispute between the companies and their employes and they agreed to submit to the commission the mutters In dispute between themselves and their employes.

At the very outlet of tho hearings Attorney Wolveiti-ii, In an incidental way, got It on tho iccnrd that tho oper ators insist that the question nf recog nition is not before the commission, This having been dune, the operators proceeded, as they view It, securely, tn combat the contentions In favor of iccognltlon ns advanced by President Mitchell, The purpose of tho operators, sup posedly, in doing this was to put their side of the caso before tho public. It was a matter of general comment that nil the lengthy discussion on this sub ject, ns far as the operators wero con cerned, was addressed to the press bos rather than the commission.
