Roosevelt "Cussed" Carmack.
Washington, Maroh 3.-Presiden*
Roosevelt io talkie? with a delegatioi
of Tennesseeans who called on hin
took occasion to deolare .he would set
Senator Oarmaok "in hell" before h<
would give him any patronage.
Ho subsequently modified the deola
ration by .saying he presumed he shoulc
have used the word "hades" inste?'
of "hell." \
This declaration was entirely gratu
itous on the part of the President.
Senator Carmaok has asked him fo:
no patronage. He has consistent!:
kept away from the whitehouse
Some of his criticism of the adminis
tration and of tho president have beei
ro severe, that.tho president fools dee]
rosen tm ci! i toward him.
The way the President's remarl
happened to be made was this:
A delegation of Tennesseeans went
to tho white house in behalf of Mr
Morgan, of that State, who aspires tc
bo upon the oanal commission. Pres
ident Roosevelt listened to what these
gentlomon had to say in behalf of Mr
Morgan, and then said Ne would bc
glad to consider their wishes.
"But," he went on to say, "there
is one member of you- delegation
whom I would see in hell beforo I
would give him any patronage."
That Tennesseean, he made clear,
was tho senator who loses no oppor
tunity to criticise the aotion of the
President and his party. Senator
Carmaok would not disous9 the episode
today, further than to say that gen
tlemen in the party had reported to
him what had occurred. ?%
"It was an entirely uncalled for dec
laration -on the president's *>art," Slid
"Sinoa I havo asked him for nothing
and do not intend to ever ask any
thing at his hands. I had so expressed
myself to,my friend, Mr. Morgan, be
fore tho party went to the white house
in his behalf. I have not asked any
thing from the President, nor would
I, and I do not caro to criticise any
statement ho may have made. I find
sufficient opportunity and sufficient
occasion to do that in the senate,"
