The president Informed a Massachusetts committee that called on him last week In favor of free hides that Mr. AVhltney had deliberately misrepresented what had occurred at laßt winter's conference. With these experiences In mind the president de clined to enter upon a discussion of free hides 'with the free hides com mittee, the chairman of which is Gov ernor W. L. Douglas. The statement of Mr. Whitney during tho recent can vnss In Massachusetts that the pres ident told him lie favored reciprocity With Canada wns that to which the president took exception. After the president had made public his address to the hides committee charging Mr. Whitney with misrepresentation, Mr. Whitney maintained that the president had certainly spoken in favor of re ciprocity with Canada on broad lines during their interview. Mr. Whitney's letter to the president follows: Mr. Whitney's Letter "Boston. Dear Sir: You may have done me a great Injustice In publicly asserting that I have wilfully misrep resented your attitude on the question of reciprocity with Canada, and that this was done- In a cowardly fashion, by saying at the time I did so under conditions when the dignity of your high office prevented you from deny ing. I think I am not open to this charge. I claim In my humble way to be a fair fighter. I believe I have a well established and well deserved rep utation In this community for fairness and justice. I may have misunder stood you and may have been led Into error.' You have charged me with an offense of which I am not guilty; you have condemned unheard: I appeal to your sense . of fairness for a personal hearing. My public utterances touch- Ing your attitude on this question are very few and very brief. "I will bring them with me If you grant me this request. I will have the passages marked, and It will not take you two minutes to read them. I trust, therefore, that you will grant my re quest: but whether you do or do not, I shall regret more than anything in connection with this matter that the righteous cause of reciprocity with neighboring countries of so much value to our people and to the whole of the human race is not to have the Indorse ment of your great name and the ben efit of your potent aid. "I take the liberty of enclosing here with a public statement made by my SHAW WILL NOT LEAVE THE CABINET AT PRESENT WILL REMAIN UNTIL END OF SESSION OF CONGRESS Two Other Changes Which Had Been .

WHITNEY." The President's Reply The letter from the president to Mr. Whitney Is as follows: "November 19, 1905, "Denr Sir — I have your letter of the 17th inst. In view of my previous ex perience with you I am obliged to state with regret that It Is out of the ques tion for me to grant you another Inter view. In this letter of November 17, In which you make this request, you furnish additional evidence of the wis dom of my refusing to communicate further with you, my refusal being based upon your evident inability to understand or determination to misrep resent what I say. In this letter you state that you 'regret more than any thing In connection with this matter that the righteous cause of reciprocity with neighboring countries, with so much value to the people of your coun try, Is not to have the Indorsement of your (my) prcat name and the bene fit of your (my) potent aid.' "Nothing that I have sntd at any time hns given you the slightest warrant for making this assertion, and when, In the very letter asking for an inter view and denying that you ever wil fully misrepresented my previous re marks, you incorporate another delib erate mlsstatement you can hardly wonder that I decline to see you; nor would there in any event be the slight est point in such an interview. In your speeches you pretend to quote from memory certain statements made In the course of a long conversation oc curring nearly a year previous. You quoted portions of what I said. Even as to these portions your language wag Inaccurate, and all the context was suppressed. As a result you have com pletely misrepresented me. as In the sentence of your present letter which I quote above. It matters little wheth er this was due to a deliberate purpose of deception or. to a. lack, in both your companions and yourself, -of a nice sense of propriety and of the. power of exact- thinkmgvand of correct appre hension and repetition of what, was said. In either event. l feel that* It would serve no useful purpose again to se-2 you or. further to correspond with you. , "You are at liberty to make this cor respondence public If you choose. Yours truly,' "THEODORE ROOSEVELT." The inclosures referred to by Mr. Whitney were copies of letters from Andrew O. Webster of this city and J. M. W. Hall of Cambridge, who went to Washington with Mr.- Whitney as members of the committee. In which Messrs. Hall and Webster state that Mr. Whitney's public account of what occurred at the Interview was In agree ment with their memory of what was said.

Taft, Secretary of War Is Guest of Honor at Banquet Given by the Com mercial Clvb — Governor Hoch Also Delivers an Address By Associated Press. KANSAS CITY, Nov. 20.— Secretary of War William H. Taft, who was the guest of honor here tonight at the an nual banquet of the Commercial club, said In responding to the toast, "The Philippines:" "The Philippine Islands are ours and must be ours for more than a gen eration.-It is quite probable i that those called upon to act as legislators Will not live to see the day when separa tion consistent with the welfare of the Philippines can be made." ;v ."■,*. The occasion of the banquet was the anniversary of the signing of the John Hay commercial treaty. Thousands of persons greeted Secretary Taft during the day, and everywhere he was given the moat enthusiastic reception. After dinner he left for Chicago on a special train. ■ At the banquet tonight Senator War ren was toastmaster. Secretary Taft was given an ovation when he arose to speak. He said in part: "In all the legislation for which con gress Is responsible affecting the Phil ippine Islands there are but two acts which can be criticised as Laving a selfish motive. One is what we might call the coastwise act, the effect of which Is to require that after July 1, 1906, all freight from the Philippine Islands to the United States and the reverse shall be carried in American bottoms. And the other Is the law by which there is imposed on products of the Philippine islands coming Into the United States 75 per rtnt of the Ding ley rates. If the coastwise act Is per mitted to come Into effect and the tax upon Philippine products Is not removed, we have congress assuming the utterly indefensible position that for the purpose of the sale of the Phil ippine products by the Filipinos the Phllliplnes shall be regarded and treated as a foreign country, while for the purpose of furnishing business to the American merchant marine they shall be treated as a domestic country and shall be made to pay the highest rates of freight which such a coastwise pro vision necessarily, entails and implies. Object of Visit "The object of my coming to Kansas City is to enlist your sympathy In an effort so to amend the constitution on our statute books that we shall be con sistent In our conduct of the Philip pines and shall repeal laws which will give the He to every charge of lack of disinterestedness and good faith In our dealing with our wards of the Pacific. "The legislation proposed for the re lief of the Philippines Is an act post poning- the application of the coast wise tra-llng laws to the trade between the Philippine islands and the United States until 1909, making a reduction of the tariff on sugar and tobacco from 75 per cent to 25 per cent of the Ding ley rates and on other products of the Philippines, free trade until 1909, when there shall be complete free trade In the products of either." Secretary Taft said that the two In terests In this country arrayed In oppo sition to free trade with the Philip pine island! are the sugar Interest and the tobacco Interest. These are Inter ested on the ground that all the bene fits and all the good which the coun. try proposes to confer upon the Phil ippines would result solely In an In- Jury to the sugar and tobacco inter ests, and at their expense alone, with out any cost to the rest of the country. "It will be found," said he, "that these complaining Interests are not ob jecting to this measure of Justice to the Philippines because It is going to cause them immediate loss, but because they suppose In years to come, with the encouragement that the American market will give to tne production of tobacco and c-ugar In the Philippines, there may come a time when the to tacro and sugar of the Philippines will enter Into compel itlon with that which they produce In this country. The at titude of these men, who really know the facts, cannot be described as other than. the quintessence of selfishness In rpposln? the gradual betterment of tin. production of sugar and tobacco In the Philippines by opening the American market, when their fear of Injury Is founded on presumption most Improb able." . lie declared that unless the Philip pine iraDortutlons i into ■ tho UniUd PRICE: SINGLE COPY, 5 CENTS States Increase from less than 60,000 tons, as It now is, to 1,800,000 tons, It will not affect the price at which su gar will be sold In the United States. "But it is paid," he continued, "that it you open the markets of the United States to Philippine sugar the Increase in Its production will be. unlimited and no one can say how enourmous the Philippines production, will become. The greatest amount of sugar evei produced ; for ' exportation in the ■ Phil ippines 'was'; lrl""1893, when the totai' exportation reached 200,000 tons. The total consumed In the Philippines Is about 80,000 tons. Now the proposition that the American market is going to offer such » motive for the production of sugar in' the Philippines as to In crease Its exportation from 100,000 tons a year to 1,800,000 Is palpably ab surd."' ■ Governor E. W. Hoeh responded to the toast, "There Is Nothing the Mat ter With Kansas," made In reply to Will Allen "White's famous utterances under the caption, "What's the Matter with Kansas?" He said: Governor Hoch's Address "Kansas was fashioned In a heroic mold and its life has always been in tense. In the battle of Ideas, as well as the battle of bullets, Kansas has ever been far out on the firing line. Kansas Is neither eastern nor western, northern or southern; It Is the central state, the hub of the Union. It is the rich,- Juicy meat in the national sand wich. "There is nothing the matter with Kansas materially," said Governor Hnch, who, after enumerating^ the great resources of the state, said: "But the real greatness of a state Is not measured by Its geographical lo cation, by its territorial extent or by Hb material resources. The real great ness of a state is measured by the character of its people. "Kansas," he said, "could make the same proud boast made once by a cit izen of Maine, that 'we raise men here.' " "Men whom the lust of office does not kill; "Men whom tho spoils of office can not buy; "Men who possess opinions and a will; "Men who have honor— men who will not lie. "Men who can stand before a demagogue "And down his treacherous flatteries without winking; "Tall men. sun-crowned, who live above the fog. "In public duty and In private thinking."

ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 20.— Despite the apparent lull the clouds are thick ening and a deluge of blood may yet drown the empire of the Romanoffs. Conditions everywhere are dreadful. Life and property are unsafe. In the cities everyone goes armed after dark and nobody ventures Into the streets unless necessity compels him to do so. Murder and incendiary fires are mul tiplying at a fearful rate. The unem ployed go about In droves, menacingly demanding alms. In the factories laborers go armed and In not a few In stances proprietors have been shot down for refusing to accede to the de mands of their men. It is conceded by the employing class that the Introduction of the eight-hour work day, considering the unproduc tiveness of the Rusian workman, is an economic Impossibility. Therefore, since It Is impossible futher to Increase the tariff on account of existing treat ies, the factories cannot be opened to eight hours labor.
