HARRISON'S INSINUATIONS A 8
TO PRESIDENTS HONESTY

Bars the Congressman Harrison's
(By Associated Press.)
Washington, June 9.—President
Taft today declined to receive repre
sentative Francis Burton Harrison,
democrat, of New York, who called at
the White House in company with
two other representatives to introduce
a number of Jewish rabbis who took
up with the president the question
of the expulsion of Jews from Russia.
™The president received the delega
tion and chatted with its various mem
bers for fifteen minutes or more.
Representative Goldfogle of New York,
acted as spokesman for the party,
and so adroitly had the situation been
•fcandled by Secretary Norton that not
one of the callers knew anything of
the incident until Harrison returned
to the capitol and there made a state
ment to the effect that he had been
rebuffed by the president.
Mr. Taft based his refusal to see
Mr. Harrison on statements attributed
by newspapers to the representative
in connection with his resolution in
the house calling upon Attorney eGn
eral Wickersham for full information
as to the connection of his office with
the Ballinger-Pinchot episode. Mr.
Harrison, according to the White
House version of the matter, charged
the president and the attorney gener
al with having wilfully attempted to
mislead congress in the back-dating
of the attorney general's summary of
the Glavis charges against the secre
tary of the interior.
Mr. Norton said that during the con
gressional receiving hour this morning
he noticed Harrison and Goldfogle of
New York and Killiher of Massachu
setts with a party of rabbis at the
head of the line, awaiting admission
to the president's office. He spoke
to all the members of the party and
a few moments later informed the
president of the presence of the dele
gation. Mr. Taft announced that he
would be glad to receive every mem
ber of the delegation but Mr. Harri
son. He declared that because of
tfie newspaper reports made by Mr.
Harrison he did not desire to speak
Secretary Norton thereupon invited
Mr. Harrison into his office, saying he
had some affairs to discuss with him.
Meantime, He had shown the presi
dent's office at the appointed hour and
a3ked Mr. Goldfogle to introduce the
callers in Harrison's absence. It was
the first time Mr.*Norton had ever
met Mr. Harrison, and when the two

against time, instead of in competi

for the boys to use. There were
some good runs made. The Bismarck

To the Citizens of Bismarck and
Members of the Bismarck Fire
I wish to express my personal
appreciation as well as the sim
ilar sentimet of the several fire
departments along the line that
came to the Capita) City on the
Soo special to attend the state
firemen's convention, for the ex
cellent treatment we received
from your hands, and for the un
stinted hospitality of all with
whom we came in contact. The
city of Bismarck is a hummer.
Never in the history of our as
sociation have we had as royal
a time as we had during the
tournament just ended. I wish
to take this public method of
showing to some small extent our
appreciation of the way you
took care of us.

The soldiers won two firsts, one

are not members of the association
were not awarded any association
prizes. A special purse was given
them, however. They made good
time in the running, but in the hook
and ladder race they were a little
slow in getting the ladder up and in
the coupling contest they were not so
fast as some of the other teams in
getting the nozzle attached to the
hose. They brought forth cheers,
however, every time they appeared.
might be mentioned here that the
14th is making the best all-around
impression that has ever been made
by a regiment stationed at Fort Lin
coln, not only on account of their
appearance, but on account of their
personal conduct. A majority of
them are gentlemen and take plea
sure in seeing that the good record
of the company is upheld. One of
them had the misfortune to stumble
in the hose race and the cart ran
over him. He sustained several se
vere bruises, but was otherwise un
hurt and was able to get up and walk
back to the starting place of the races
without the aid of his companions.
Last evening the city was turned
over to the visiting firemen and con
fetti and other carnival adjuncts were
very much in evidence. The crowd
was good natured and took all of the
fun* in good part and at midnight all
had retired and the streets took on
a deserted appearance. When the
Kenmare special pulled out after nine
o'clock there was a good delegation
of firemen and citizens present to
bid the western boys a fond farewell.
Turned the Tables
After all the fun was supposed to
be over last evening, the Lidgerwood,
Hankinson and Oakes teams, who
came here in a special car, invited
the members of the Bismarck team
to their car and entertained them
royally. The members of the Bis
marck team called up the Tribune
and stated that it was one of the fin
est entertainments they had ever at
tended. The car will leave this morn
ing for home on the 9:30 train.
