CANAL ZONE RULE
IS A PU1M1I
OHIO SENATOR DENIES THAT HE
HA8 JOINED BURTON IN FIGHT
AGAINST CHARLE8 TAFT.
Cincinnati, O., Dec. 23.—Senator Jo
seph B. Foraker, on reaching homo
from Washington last night, denied
that he had entered Into a combination
with Congresman Theodore Burton to
beat Charles P. Taft for the senate.
He said:
"The talk about a combination be
tween Mr. Burton and myself is all
bosh. It is a piece off the same cloth
from which was cut the story published
broadcast two or three weeks ago that
a similar arrangement had been enter
ed into between Governor Harris and
myself. I have not made any combi
nation with anybody. Nobody has sug
gested any such thing to me, and I
have not made any such suggestion to
anybody else.
"Each candidate has a perfect right
to enter tha race, and I suppose each
Is standing on his own merit and not
expecting support on any other ground.
Hopes for Friendly Contest.
"I hope the contest will be friendly
and good natured In character, and 1
am sorry, therefore, to see such attacks
on Mr. Burton as that made in a
Washington letter published in today's
Times-Star, and such attacks on
Charles P. Taft as that which Is re
produced In today's paper from the
New York Press.
"1 have no Idea that Mr. Taft would
spend such enormous sums of money
aa this article charges him with. In
charg-lng that he Is promising to spend,
if necessary, $500,000, jko secure the
senatorship, his enemies have certainly
overshot the mark. A man who would
spend any sum beyond legitimate re
quirements has no appreciation for
either the dignity of the office or the
care, responsibility and hard labor that
must be assumed and undertaken by
the man who holds It.
No Honor to Puohased Offloa,
"Besides, there Is no honor In having
tfc\t or amy other office that has to be
bouSftt or secured by any kind of un
fair \ethods. It has always been a
v*ry gratifying thought to me that the
office ca^se to me both times without
aty charge or orlticlsm of such naturo.
Unless It can come to me again in that
same way I do not want It to come at
all.
1 do not know whether President
Roosevelt Is opposed to the election of
Charles P, Taft to the senatorship. All
I know is what is published In thq
newspapers, and that I prefer not to
dlsf'un* because one man can judge of
It as woll as another."
Asked about the differences between
President Roosevelt and the two housea
of congress, Senator Foraker said:
•JPlease exeuae me also from discuss
ing that e*ce,ot only to say I do not
hwre to explain, apologise or defend
myself any longer for having had some
diflfa^amies with President Roosevelt.
I have not had any at any time, except
sueh as my sense of duty required."
