THE WASHINGTON TIMES. SATURDAY, MAY 11; 1918. 13' I URNS I R., ATTACKING BURLESON. T " ON W. R. HEARST NEW TORK. Mar 11. Theodore Slooaerelt, acceptlnc; Postmaster Gen eral Burleson's challenge to prove 'h(s charge that the Administration has been anxious to punish rw papers and magazines which told the truth about "the Administration'!" failure to conduct the war efficiently" and failed to pnntsh powerful news papers frienOly to the Administra tion which opposed the war or at tacked our allies or directly or In directly ajded Germany. Issued last un-ht what he calls a "brief prc- ' .llrwlfia- etntmMit." Mr. Roosevelt's statement follows: "Postmaster Ceneral Burleson's statc immt wa Issued formally from the (office "bnttrermatttnvof the- Postofftce department. 1 shall therefore answer tit completely and at length In a letter to some Senator, so as to have It appear permanently In the records, , precisely as Mr. Burleson's statement appears. "Meanwhile I make the following brief preliminary statement: "The Metropolitan magazine and 'Collier's Masarine and the New Tork JTribune have consistently upheld the i war, but have . also told that' small 'portion of the jruth whlch-;Jt was 'absolutely necessary to tell about the 'Administration' failure to conduct J the war efficiently, and have only . told It when it was Imperative to J do so in order to speed up the war. Collier's has been attacked by Mr. J Creel, officially speakinp as Presi dent Wilson's representative and as giving: a message from the United i States. Government to the American nml IT. ha a nlan stfnrkeri the l iMetronolItan and the New York Trl- buse. Macazlne I Stopped. "The Postofflce Department, through the Xew Tork postmaster, on March - lost notified lbe publishers of the MetroVoltfan' lliaf t's" March issue waenoBiaaaflaMWBdesh ulonage act! TUT kitlctt VaJ 'vlie7y pub- Iished throughout the countr'. It was calculated to do great damaco to tb - Metropolitan. The Metropolitan !m- i mediately asked the postmaster for Jnhe grounds of his action, but got "no answer. On March 0 it telegraph- f d the Postmaster General asking whether the action was taken by the order of the Postmaster General, and i' not what steps the Postmaster " General would take to repair the damage done to the Metropolitan. "On March 31 the Postmaster of New -York wrote to the Metropolitan reversing his action of March 2, but making no apology and giving no ex planation. The Postmaster General. Mr Burleson, on March 11. replied t-io the Metropolitan stating that accu sation had been made that an article . -in tt was a traitorous effusion, but that he did not know whether the com- . jilaints wer.e4mtiftfji-3nil.ihat.2t3 or- - ders 1ad" been Issued about- It by the r department. "He did not answer the Metropolis-tan's question as to what steps would be taken to repair the damage done - by the conduct of the New York post master. "Strongly Pro-Ally." "On March 12 the editor of the .Metropolitan wrote to Mr. Burleson niying among other things, You must . remember that there are a great num- . ber of pacifists and pro-Germans in ,t this country who would willingly put the Metropolitan Magazine out of business because it is the most . btrongly pro-ally and anti-German a publication in the country.' calling attention to the fact that a statement attributed to the Solicitor General for the Department was obviously not in , accord with the facts and that the Metropolitan could not accept news paper" "-rtalemenl without conflima tion from ' the Postmaster General , and asking for a written, statement ,. from the Postmaster General In the matter. i "He has received no such statement nor has any attempt been made by thv Postoffiee Department to remedy the . wrong It did by the postmaster at New , Yorfc "At the same time one of the adver tisers In the Metropolitan. E. M. Man- . eur, of Floral Park. N. Y.. received a , letter from a man in Chicago suggesting . that he rwlthdraw his adverti.v-m-nt he cause of the editorial in the Metropolitan Magazine. Mr. Munsur declined to withdraw It. n April 3 he notified the Metropolitan that a. special agent of the Vnited State Department of Justice, whose name, shield number and addrt.13 he gave all of which I will givo in my " formal letter to the Senator called on ' him with copies of the letters of tli-s "Thlcago man to him and of the replies and asked if Mr. Mansur had stopped ' advertising and wanted to know if he The Sunset Tournament .

Question of Wraith. Mr. Hearst is a .very wealthy man, reputed to be much more than a mil lionaire, owning a dozen newspapers more or less, and a half doz-n maga zines in different parts of the coun try. At the very beginning of the' war the Government proceeded sue-! cesfully against Tom Watson's pub lication In, Georgia, yet Tom Watson had done nothing that was anything like as dangerous to this country and our allies and a bclpful to Germany as Mr. Hearst had done. "It is interesting to remember that the Administration had full warning about Mr. Ilcar.-t's prubabW' attitud'-. by Ins previous editorials attaching German j 's foes and defending Ger many. I have before me a opy of the New York American editorial of June . 18ir. signed by Mr. Hearst himself, saying that we have no right to ask Germany to refrain from sub marine warfare against the com merce of her enemies, and that the Lusitania was an English vessel, and was properly a spoil of war, and that its destruction by the German submarine was in accordance with th authorized and accepted rules of warfare. Pandering To I'ora." "After went into the war. on April 11, 1917. Mr. Hearst wrote stripping our country of men. money and food is a dangerous policy. Out earnest suggestion to the Congress i that It Imperativfly refuse to permit the further draining of our food sup plis and our military supplies to Eu rope.' "This, of course, was equivalent to a demand that after going -to war we should turn around and help Germany more than if we had continued to re main neutral. "On April 21, 1917. the New York Amrican said, The painful truth is that we are bfing practically used at a mere re-enforcement of KnglandV warfare and England's future ag grandizement.' This, of course, wa- I an effort against our ally and an -f i fort to pander to antl Knglih preju I dice in the interest of our foes, and nothing else.' "On May 17 it advocated our spend j ing all our money on preparing our army ana navy nere ai nome. anu si compelling Germany If she wants to fight to come to us.' which was, of course, equivalent to answering that we would render no aid to defeat Ger mans until she had defeated our allies and was prepared to attack us slngU handed "On May 2." the same paper said of the efforts to float the Liberty loan, If you want our food and wealth aent abroad to help suffering Kngland buy a liberty bond, furnish the sinews of war.' In view of Hearst's continued effort to excite hatred between the i United States and Kngland. th Im- I plication of this sentence cannot be mistaken. UuarreU of Europe. "In the very next sentence he subtly attempts to appeal to all I men with a feeling of nffection for jcrmany by Intimating that whoever ; purchased a Liberty bond desired to ee Germany not merely defeated, but di-membered ' On J'rly 27 the New York Amerl- rsn spoke of our soldiers being sent .ei- - n r.ffe -ed up In bloody sar- 0 lie ambi'ion of contending j u. ions oi. foreign battlefields. On November 22 It spoke of our Inter fering in Europe's quarrels. "It Is absolutely impossible to re concile the Government's action In proceeding against Tom Watson's pa per with its failure to proceed against Mr. Hearst's papers on any theory that Justice was to be done alike to the strong and the weak. "The Gocrnment had full notice about Hearst, because th allies had barred him from the cable service, and only through the good offices of this Government have these privileges Just now been restored to Mr. Hearst. -Mr. Hearst's papers have upheld Mr. Baker, have apologized for the war program and have even denied such breakdowns as that In the aircraft program. I'apr' Helping 'Now, "It is trtV that since we entered the war Mr. Hearst has at various times issued editorials professing great patriotic zeal at the very time when in other editorials he was at tacking the allies of America Eng land and Japan in the most offensive way, and thereby doing his best to weaken the effect of our war against Germany, and at the very time when he was upholding the Russian Bol shevists. Such action represents! mere camouflage. At this moment in France the Bonnet Rouge is being tried for treason, although In every issue it was blatant with pretense of patriotism. "ISy turning to the New York Tii buno of May 8, 1918, Postmaster Gen eral Burleson will find an ardent trib ute made by the former German cor respondent of the Koelnlsche Zeitung to Mr. Heajst and Mr. Hearst's edl-tor-in-chlef, Arthur Brisbane, for having been 'auxiliaries of valued In fluence' to Germany, especially be cause of 'the editorials in the Hearst mwpapers.' "I commend this to Mr. Burleson and also to his Cabinet associate. Mr. Daniels, in view of their recent tele grams of congratulations to Mr. Bris bane, these telegrams having been published in Mr. Hearst's paper, the Evening Journal. Able and UnselfUh. "Mr. Burleson says of Mr. Hearst's alt-r ego that 'he congratulates th people of Chicago because they are to have the bcnefiTof Mr. ISrisbane's able and unselfish efforts for Justice and freedom and true democratic govern ment.' and Mr. Daniels goes Mr. Bur leson one better in expressing the be lief 'that Mr. Brisbane will preach patriotism and civic righteousness.' "The quotations above deprive Mr. Hurleson and the Administration of which he Is part of any shred of Jus iltlcation In this matter. I have a nud deal more to say. especially aboui one or two English and German news papers In the West, which Mr. Burle son left unmolested at the very time of the action of bis department against the Metropolitan. It will be said In my letter to the Senator for permanent record." REPORT JO HOUSE ROUNDLY SCORES IMItttlUUIiirHm! i !

Week's Sales 201 Shares of Stock In a blistering report from the j House District Committee, submitted i to the House this afternoon. Chair man en Johnson, recommends, for pas sage the bill fbr the taking over by the Government- of the property of the Washington Market Company. Mr. Johnson delves back Into the beginnings of tbe Washington Mar ket Company which was chartered as far back at 1M2. It goes into much detail in telling of the "unusual char ter" granted to the company in 1S70. He finds that at that time some of the men who were officials of the District were likewise interested in the company, which obtained favor able consideration in getting conces sions. He mentions "ISoss" Shepherd. B. I- Butler, William E. Chandler, Henry D. Cook, later governor of the District; M. G. Emery, the mayor, and S. P. Brown. He sharply criticises the conduit of the offivials of that day who were involved in the matter. The Government at that tlrm- leased to the Washington Market Company for nlnnty-nlne years 1S1.3J1 feet ot Reserva tion 7 Tho annual rental was at first CZ.O0O. but this was soon scaled down to fTMO. This Is the rental the company hais Ince paid. In spite of this. Mr. Johnson points out the United States and the District rented as an armoo parts of the second and third floors of the building at $8,000 a year, or P a year raorct nan the company was paying asl ts whole ground rent. Though obligated to raise by sub scription capital stock of Jl.000,000, Mr. Johnson says only $150,000 has been paid In by the stockholders, and on this amount it ts paying 131-3 per cent, Mr. Johnon also finds that the Treasury Department is paying at the rate of $M.O00 a year for a part of the space on the second and third floors. He points out that the annual rent is but sixtennths of I per cent of the assessed value of the land. and $19,500 Bonds. COLLECTORS ASK PROMPT PAYIVIEN T OF PI TAXES Commissioner of Internal Revenue Roper today notified all collectors to urge Immediate payment of Income and excess profits war taxes wherever possi ble. Warning of the last minute rush that will come on June IS. when all taxes are due, the Commissioner pointed out that May IS is the last day that the 3 per cent discount will bo allowed on returns that are paid In advance of June 15. Collectors of revenue have been report ing considerable advance business be cause of the discount of I per cent per annum which many have claimed, but which others have refused to deduct for patriotic reasons. Hundreds of thou sands of dollars have been refused by persons who paid their taxes In advance. Taxes will be received In advance rlicht up until the last da), though the dis count will not apply after next Wednes day. V Today's was a short session of the Washington Stock Krclrenge, with but little trading. Capital Traction S's rose a half. $500 bringing 100. Washington Railway and Electric common remained steady. 25 shares bringing 50. The total sales for the week end in? May 11, 191 S. on the Washington Stock Exchange were 201 shares of stock and, .$19,500 in bond - WALL ST. MARKET CLOSING IS IRREGULAR ON STOCK EXCHANGE.

NEW YORK, May 11, Trading on the Stock Exchange continued In large volume at the opening; today, but the market tons was mixed and price movements Irregular. The most interest was attached to Distillers Secnritles, which moved up 3 points in the first fifteen minutes to 00 ;i.

PAN-lERICISi GAINS IMPETUS BY POLICY OF BRAZIL RIO DD JANEIRO, May 11 The announcement that Great Ilrltain contemplates raising its Rio legation to the rsnk of an embassy, coupled with publication of the Interview with President elect Rodriguez Alves outlining the foreign policy he will pursue, today furnished the Rio newspapers with a series of national sensations. When President Wencelaus Gomez received tho special British embassy, which has Just arrived at Rio, he was Informed of England's Intention to make the legation here an em bassy. The President replied that. In that event, lirazll would raise its London legation to an embassy. Alves' unqualified declaration in favor of Pan-Americanism wai the feature of Friday's editorials. Refer ring to this and the presence of the British mission, O Pals said: "Senor Alves' interview is most opportune, because his ideas on the foreign policies of the future govern ment were expressed on the same day England's special mission waa receiv ed by the President. "Senor Alves categorically affirms his accord with President Wilson's actions and sentiments, which must unite the American people. In a word.
