SPEAKER BYRD OUT OF POLITICS 'Continued From First Page.) made chairman Of the Committee for Courts of Justice. This gave him an opportunity to tnlce the fron', rank In ti.i- body, which he rt'd without delay. So It was tnat wlicja re-elected In he was the choice of the IIouFe for Sreaker. In 1910 and 1912 ho was ?<caln given this position, each time without opposition. No one has fi? k?n of measuring swords with h'm i?t the next .-ess<on. Activity of mind Is the quality which perhaps tho most Impresses the niemners of the Legislature with the Bpeaktr Ills decisions are lnstuntan cous. Even If reading or wilting at tha moment, he attains an immediate grasp on the situation. The Impres? sion is left of a habit of direct and concentrated thought. While these pollt'cal ? associations have been pleasant to Mr. Byrd. he has ind them to be very unrotuuncratlve. The }r>'"'' salary nju'ckly vanishes in the living expenses of a leg'slatlve session, ..:n!ng8 of other times have to be 'Irawr. upon. Having had four rinses of th's sort of thing. Mr. Byrd has decided that ho will eschew poli? ties nnd hereafter regnrd the science of government with a detached and In different eye. He has often heen mentioned as a poss'Mo^future, candidate for Governor. Per n.?xt.y?p.r** campaign he It pledged to the support of Henry Carter Stuart. The Byrd Liquor Law. Dur'rig his first session as Speaker ?In 19"?'?Mr. Byrd was the author of a bill which has come to he widely kn 'ur. as the Byrd liquor law. It was an extension ?>f the Mann liquor law. which made its .author Governor of Virginia. This measure went further n '.he Mann bill by enforcing com p llsory prohibition in communi? ties of less than 500 inbabl tantS, excepting as to distilleries and^ as to summer resorts and In dlspen-' pury towns. Further. It prohibited the sale of liquor between the hours of 1 tr .r.lfiht and S o'clock A. M. anywhere In the State, nnd forbade its sale in clubs in prohibition f.lhcrs. Two years later there were amend? ments to the Byrd law. increasing the S'rite license tax. and wiping out the provision for the sale or "near beer," r weird sort of beverage wh*ch was put by the Senate in the original b'll of which he was patron as a fort of Berry's for Clothes' Battle of Bunker Hill, .tune l'th, 1776. "Times change. asTd we change with them." In those days everything in the nature of luxury was im? ported, nnd there are still some people for whom "imported" lias a mystic charm and they buy lots of tilings, particularly cloth, sold them under the name "imported," really made right in the United States, and better for it. | To-day a special display of our lowest priced suits, $15; and our silk-lined top-notch-; ers at $35?American In every detail. Also our suits at $80 to $40, made from genuine Imported, fabrics. | Come and see the new Berry suits. bn.se deceiver to the stomach of the citizen oi the dry community. Another problem to which Mr. Byrd has directed his attention is the mat? ter of n belter adjustment of tho burdens of taxation. Under the pro? visions of a hill which he helped to support In 19i0, a Tax I "01111111551011 was created, of which he was made a member. This commission worked for two years, and at the beginning of the past session Its conclusions were ; made the basis of the keynote speech , by Mr. Byrd in accepting the Demo? cratic nomination for re-election ns Speaker. But it was found impossible to pass any bill which would deal ef- I fectlvoly with the subject. The Byrd primary bills of 1910 nnd ' 1912 have been widely discussed. The I former died on the calendar. After two I years of further study the Speaker evolved a measure which he succeeded in having paused hy the House last , session, but which was so emended In 1 the Senate as to cause Its patron to ' refuse to recognize it When he met it In the corridor. However, the House agreed to the amendments rnther than take nothing, ?nd the law Is an untried , experiment on the statute hooHs. The withdrawal from politics of ' Speaker Byrd will arouse much In? terest throughout the State. Thcro ' will be a great deal of speculation as to his successor.

It was now a light worth while. It was a fight that meant something." The MlBftlaslPpl Letter. The Mississippi letter, as given out. boro tho nanies of Charles Bunks, W. P. Looker. Percy W. Howard. Daniel \V. Gary and Wesley Crayton. This lettei said In part: "We, the undersigned delegates to the Republican National Convention from the Stato of Mississippi, having, after full conference and discussion umoug ourselves, and having only in view the, welfare of the Republican purty and ol tlie nation, and fujly appreciative ol your known stand for a square deal to all men, Irrespective of race or creed, and believing that In the crisis which now confronts the Republican party you are the only roan that can ieau It to victory In November, huvo this day decided to tender your our support In the national convention as tho nominee of the Republican party for Pr?sident of tho United Slates." This Mississippi letter was quickly followed by a report that the two del- 1 egales from Hawaii, Instructed for Taft, had decided to Join hands with the California delegation In support of Colonel Roosevelt. This report later ( was denied by the, delegates, who de-! dared they would abide by their lu structlons. When tho hotel corridors began to' murmur gossip of a "Roosevelt land? slide" tho Taft headquarters wore spurred to activity. Director McKinley, Senator I'enrose, William BarnuS, Jr., of New York, and several other Tu:t lead? ers talked over the mutter, and Director McKinley Instituted a rapid liru inves? tigation of individual cases ol deser? tions which the Roosovelt statement:) embraced. After several hours of dla cus3ion. Director McKinley decided that the Roosevelt claims were unfounded except as to two delegates, Charles Banks, of Mississippi, and ftmothy Woodruff, of New York, and the situa? tion unchanged. < ? On tho contrary," says Mr. McKinley, "there arc over 100 delegates in this convention who have been instructed for Dr. Roosevelt who are unqualifiedly opposed to his nomination and who will only vote for him because of auch In? structions. President Taft has votes enough to nominate him on the first ballot." McKinley Attack* Colonel. Director McKinley In a Statement attacked the woi k of former President Roosevelt and his managers. "The ilrst work of Theodore Roose? velt on arrival In this city was tho assertion that 'Chicago it a poor place t'er men to try to steal in.' NotWith-| standing this fact. Mr. Roosevelt has been busily engaged throughout Sun? day, after attending church in the mornlng. in attempting to steal dele? gates away from President Taft, al? though these delegates are solemnly Instructed and pledged to suppott tho President. "At a conference latt night with 'Bill' Fllnn. of Pittsburgh, within four hours after he had made his denunciation of alleged theft. Col? onel Roosevelt agreed to a planj whereby he was to maki personal ap-i penis to Taft-lnstruct ju delegates to | break their Instructions and vote fur. him.' Announcement of Timothy Wood? ruff's defection was ma le by K. A. Van Valkc-nburg. of Philadelphia. "Colonel Roosevelt lias authorized n-.e to Mate "to the newspapers that former Lieutenant-Governor Timothy L. Woodruff, head of the Kings coun? ty delegation of New York, has Juai assured the Colonel thai he will vote tor Roosovelt," said Van Valkenburg. Mr. Woodruff stales that the gross and Indefensible injustice showing in .the unseating of the legally elected delegate's lrom Texas und Washing? ton has forced him to adopt this course. Mr. Woodruff stated to Col-, onel Roosevelt that 'ie is convinced that members of the rational com? mittee who voted for these outrages did so knowing full well that Presl-j dent Tuft cannot win. He therefore feels absolved from any obligation lu further support a condldato whoso manugera have demonstrated that they have not the good of the Re-i publican party at heart." Comes With Petitions. Another statement announced that1 ' Alfred Hayes. Jr., law professor at Cornell University. who arrived to? day, had been designated to deliver to the delegates the Thirty-seventh Con gtessional Distilct of New York Peti? tion?, urging them to support Mr. Roosevelt. The petition wies signed b) Too Repiit'llcahs from the Progres I slve Republican Club, of Tompklns j county. N. Y.. and the Roosevelt] j League Of Chemung county. The Woodruff announcement led to! j considerable looby talk that other Brooklyn delegates would go with I.Im. The Taft leaders rounded up the. I delegation, and to-night issued a state-, j mrnt In their behalf. The delegates, according to the! ' statement, "renew their allegiance to1 I Mr. Taft s candidacy and publicly an-' I nounce that the poslticn which Mr. : Woodruff has taken In no way affects , the position of the delegation from, : that county." The statement was t.igned by twelve of the sixteen delegates front Kings county. The four Brooklyn men ap? pearing on the temporary roll who did not sign the. statement were Tim..thy! L Woodruff.
