Not to lie Bossed "I told Mr. Barnes Senator Piatt had told me he had decided upon a superintendent of public works who was satisfactory and that Senator Piatt had congratulated me upon get ting such a good man. "Well," Colonel Roosevelt went on. "the man was Francis Hendricks, of Syracuse. I told Mr. Barnes I didn't intend any man should say whom I should appoint." As the Coolnel said this his .law squared and he pounded upon the Judge's bench. He continued: "Mr. Barnes said in reply that Sen ator Piatt was right and that the leader of an organization must have complete control of it." "In 1908 did you discuss legislation at Albany with Mr. Barnes?" asked Mr. Bowers. "Yes." replied the witness. "Mr. Barnes spoke with me generally on the subject of legislation. He said Governor Hughes was favoring legis lation against the Interests of the organization and that the Democratic organization was backing up the Re-' publicans in defeating legislation fos tered by Governor Hughes. "Mr. Barnes said he and his friends had control of the party. He did not say he, himself, was personally In control. He did say that Mr. Hughes could not take the control away from those In whom It was Invested." Relates Four Political Chapters Four chapters of Albany politics were related by Theodore Rooscj elt on the witness stand to-day. The ex- President gave what he claimed to be the details of the election by "Barnes Republicans" assisted by "Murphy Democrats" of anottlelal leader of the Republican party in New York; the cause of the hostilities between Wil liam Barnes and Governor Hughes; the defeat of tho Hart-Agnew racing bill by the Republican organization and the fight he said the combined Democratic and Republican machines, the latter led by Mr, Barnes, made against direct primaries legislation. He also identified a letter written by Mr. Barnes In which the latter told him "the Idea of getting rid of bosses Is absurd so long as you have party government." Colonel Roosevelt was on the stand during the entire forenoon session of court. He was to continue the story by which lie hopes to prove to the Jury that he was justified In causing the publication of the statement upon which Mr. Barnes is suing him for libel, this afternoon, Bachelors Invited to Box Party in Honor of "Bachelor Dinner;" Biggest Musical Comedy Offering Ever Put On at the Colonial JSI M H| I H# :!■ wSMmtM B fm H « Bit Hff _ - MiiMßiisßaß..
