President Taft practically rcpudiated
Yiee-President James S. Sherman \vs
tcrday for thc part the lattcr took in
bringing about the defeat of Theodore
Roosevelt in tlie recent meeting of
the New York republiean state eoni
mittee.
In a Utti-r sent from Beverly to
I.loyd 0. Griseom, leader ol the in
?urgenl foroaa in tbe state warfare,
thc preaident ohargei the viee-presi
den! with baving praotieed deoejt and
acting unfairly io the ' nefotiationi
whirh precededthal bietoric meeting.
The preaident takea i Arm lUnd
with the progrearive elemcnt in the
organuation; announcei that there ii
no break betweeo bimself and Mr.
Roosevelt ontheetate iaauee and givea
the Sberman-Woodrufi Barnei coni"
bination a iwal which the inaurgenta
declare will prove fatal tothe regular
leadera.
Mr. Taft derlaivs that he was mis
repreeented in every parttoular by the
Old Guard leadera, who juatifled tlieir
courao in rejecttng Mr. Rooeevelt for
the temporary chairmaaahip o! the
atate conrention by making it appear
thal wich a courae bore the approral of
tbe preaident.
It waa the prosident'a tirst etatemenl
regarding either hia relationi with the
roccnt preaident or bia attitude toward
the two factionH wjiich are cngaged ii
a death atruggle tbroughout the itate
The inaurgenta are jubllanl and declare
that the preekient'a utterancea mean
tbe complctc elimination ol the regu
lara.unlcsi tbey make an unconditional
surrender.
Mr. GriacoHi iiipplemented Mr. Taft'i
letu i witfa a itatemenl of his own, cal
ling "ii all progreasive republicana in
tbe atate to unite in the tight a??ninst
tbe old Guard. That tbe conteel will
b? carried into tbe primariea and
that there would be no qnarter given
waa itated erophatically by Mr. Gria
oom.
Emphaaia was givon in the tbree
atatementa?thoae of Mr. Taft, Mr.
Rooeevelt and Mr. Griaooro?thal all
refereocea to tbe relationi between the
preaident and former preaidenl were to
New York state alone.
Vvnile thoae relationa may beatrained
on sueli robjecta aa the enforceroenl of
"my policiea" and the preaidental
Domination of 1912, ii wai made clear
thal tlie preaident and Mr. Rooaerell
agreed thal the moal nrgent problem
now to be lohred is the aalvation of
their party in the empire state. Their
intereata are identical, in thal they
both demand rcpublican vietory in Wew
York this fall. Furthei tlian that DOtfa
are lilent.
Much of the myatery which aur
rounded the itate commrttee'i meeting
!;,-.! week was cleared away by the
presidem's commonioatioa.
\ rew momenta after Mr. Booeevell
had beeo rejected, the announcemenl
iraa made semioflieially by Mr. \Vou<l
ruff and bia aaaociatea that the aeleo
tion of Mr. Bberman had beenentirely
approved by Mr. Taft
The inaurgenta were dumbfounded
by the announcement, and ii was made
clear at Oyatet Bay that Mr. Booae
velt was stun? to tlie rjuiik by what
appeaied to be his successor's aetion.
Mr. Roojerelt, after raadJng witii at
tention tlie full text of President
Taft'i letter, issued the|following form
al statement:
"I am vory glad to Ne l'resident
Taft'i statement, and am pleased with
it. Before the meeting of the state
OOmmittM I had repeatedly expressed
to variotis leaders not merely my will
ingneaa, but my deaire to aae tliem.
Binoe the meeting 1 have not thought
that there was any particular object in
meeting thena, as. owing to their action.
the >ituatioii had become aocfa as to
admit of no eompromisej and I had
OOtbing to add to wliat I had already
aaad, I may add that I have not
ohanged my onind now. My pcai
tion is perfeotty datoite and
have nothing to ehange in it. I had
never desired the ehairmanship, and
COnaented to have my name oonsidered
on oondWoo only that, in platform and
candidate alike. the party should en
daaroi to acbien moceaa in the only
way worth trying; that is, by de
serving. by making it evident that the
repobUcan party of the state of New
York intenda in good faith to save the
interest.- of all the people of the sUte.
I eaiiHot speak detinitely at the mo
ment of my whoh- plans, btx-anse I do
not know how far the sitnation will be
cbanged bv the president's letter. and
80 I can aay nothing more defimtc at
present.
Yice President Bberman was seen at
h. home at Utiea. N. Y.. last night
and advised of the letter by President
Taft and the itatementa of ex-Presiden
elt and Mr. Griscom. ?????
be did not desirc to see eopies of them
and dedined absolutely to make any ,
oorament or exrjreaaion in referenceto
Jlu rnatter. He simply declared: i;
haw nothing whatever to say." M'.
Bberman will go to Watertown. N. i .
today on buaioeai and will not see Mr.'
?H when he goei to I'tica today
to addrcss the grangcrs. He start
west Friday on a tour of campatgn
