T.R. SAYS HUGHES'
IDEAS ARE RIGHT Indorses New York Governor's Attitude on Direct Primaries in Outlook Editorial MUST GIVE PEOPLE POWER Declares Those Who Think They Have Checked Movement Are Mistaken [Aaaool&ted Prenl NEW YORK, July 6.—Former Presi dent Roosevelt deals with Governor Hughes, the New York legislature and primary reform In a signed editorial article In the current number of the Outlook. Mr. Roosevelt writes as follows: . "I believe that Governor Hughes has been supported by the bulk of the wisest and most disinterested people as regards most of his measures and positions, and I think this has been markedly the case as regards primary nominations. "I know that many honest and sin cere men are opposed to Governor Hughes on this point, and I know aIM that the proposed reform will very possibly accomplish less than Its ex treme advocates expect; while I am well aware, as of course all thinking men must be, that the worth of any such measure In the last resort depends upon the character of the voters, and that no patent device will ever secure good government until tho people themselves devote sufficient energy, time and judgmont to make the device work. STITI.ES THRIFT "Finally, I freely admit that here and there, where tho principle of direct nominations has been applied in too crude shape, or wrongheadedly, It has, while abolishing- certain evils, produced or accentuated others—in certnln cases, for instance, putting a premium upon the lavish expenditure of money. "But while I freely admit all this, T neverless feel in the first place that on the fundamental issues of direct pri mary nominations tho governor is right, and In the second place that as the measure finally came up for action in the state legislature, It was well nigh free from all objections save those of the men who object to it be cause they are fundamentally opposed to any change whatever in the desired direction. 1 "The bill provided only for direct popular ;ictlon In the primaries In rela tively small geographical and political communities, thereby making the ex periment first where there was least liability to serious objection and avoid ing or deferring the task of dealing with those big communities whero the difficulties and dangers to be over come would be the greatest. ABE MISTAKEN "Thnse who believe that by their ac tion they have definitely checked the movement for direct popular primaries are, in my Judgment, mistaken. In Its essence, this Is a movement to make the government more democratic; more responsive to the needs and wishes of the people as a whole. With our politi cal machinery It is essential to have an efficient party, but the machinery ought to be suited to democratic and not oligarchic customs and habits. "The question whethpr in a self-gov erning republic we shall have solf-gov . ernlng parties #ls larger than the par ticular bill. We hold that the right of popular self-government Is incomplete unless it includes the right of«the vot ers not merely to choose between candi dates when they have been nominated, but also the right to determine who these candidates shall be. Under our system of party (rovernrnent, therefore, the voters should be guaranteed the right to determine within the ranks of their respective organizations who tho candidates of the parties will be, no loss than the right to choose between the candidates when the candidates are presented to them. NO BREAKDOWN DESIRED "There ll no desire to break down tho responsibility of party organization un der duly constituted party leadership, but there is a desire to make this re s'sponsibllity real and to give the mem bers of the party the right to say whom they desire to execute this leadership. In New York state no small part of Hot Weather is dreaded by people with low vi tality. They cannot sleep at night, do not enjoy their meals, suffer continually from dysentery, malaria, chills, fever and other summer ills. To overcome this the system must be built up, the vitality restored, and the whole body made strong and vigorous and able to ward off the attacks of all disease germs.

CUMMINS ' the strength of the movement has come from the popular conviction that many of the men most prominent in party leadership tend at times to forget that in a democracy the function of political leaders must normally be to lead, not to drive. "We, the men who compose the great bulk of the community, wish to gov ern ourselves. We welcome leadership, but we wish our leaders to understand that they derive their strength from us and that although we look to them for guidance we expect this guidance to be in accordance with our interests and our Ideals. "I believe that the people of New York state will In the end Insist on taking a more direct part in the nom. ination of candidates, because I believe they will grow more and more to In sist on Just the kind of guidance and leadership that I have mentioned." ROOSEVELT TO CONFER WITH NOTED INSURGENTS Senator Beveridge and Represen tative Fish Among Those Coming to Oyster Bay OTSTfeR BAT, N. T., July 6.—An other important political conference Is to be held at Sagamore hill, tomorrow. Senator Beverldge of Indiana, Repre sentative Hamilton Pish of New York and others who are affiliated more or less directly with the Insurgent move ment are to be guests of Col. Roose velt. The colonel returned here this evening. During his stay In New York today he made arrangements for his flrst conference with the state "regu lars." William H. Barnes, Jr., head of the Albany county Republican organ ization, and J. W. Wadsworth, Jr., speaker of the New York state assem bly, are to sea him some time this summer. They were two of the most active men In defeating the colonel and Governor Hughes in their fight for the direct nominations bill. It was at their own request. Col. Roosevelt said, that arrangements were mada for the conference. Col. Roosevelt announced that Gov ernor Hughes would make his visit next Tuesday. Col. Roosevelt gave out at the Out look office today the, following state ment, referring to the visit to Saga more Hill yesterday of Representative Poindexter of Washington: "Col. Roosevelt will see very many senators and congressmen, assembly men and other public officials, repre senting all phases of public opinion. He declines to be reported for any state ments excepting those which he him self makes. He has said nothing and intends to say nothing as to any con tests for a nomination. If he has any thing to say on such a subject it would be over his own signature. "All that Mr. Roosevelt said in this case was that he was pleased to find Unit, as he had expected from Mr. Poindt'xter's past record. Mr. Poin dexter was in hearty sympathy with Mr. Roosevelt's views as to conserva- tlon and similar subjects. Mr. Roose velt expressed no opinion about tho senatorial contest, and Mr. Roosevelt believes Mr. Poindexter is not respon sible for the statements which have ap peared. Certainly, in so far as these statements have quoted Mr. Roosevelt, except as above indicated, they had no foundation whatever In fact." Col. Roosevelt's statement was called forth by the fact that he took excep tion to special dispatches from Oyster Bay last night In which he was quoted directly as saying that he would sup port Mr. Poindexter In his contest for a seat in the United States swiate.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, TOES 7, TOO CUMMINS FORCED TO CANCEL TOUR Condition of lowa Statesman's Health Causes Doctors to Order Long Rest MUST GIVE UP PET LUXURIES Noted Insurgent Leader Denied Golf and Cigars—Declares - He Is All Right DES MOINES, lowa. July 6.—Ardu ous work In the ranks of the insurgents at the national capital has forced Sen ator A. B. Cummins to forego the se ries of Chautauqua lectures which he planned several months ago. Mr. Cummins has been a sufferer from heart trouble for many years, and this 'was augmented by his strenuous labors during the recent sessions In Washing ton. Not only will Senator Cummins fore go the pleasure of speaking before Chautauqua assemblages, but he must also give up cigars, and his favorite exercise, golf. While his condition has caused his friends some alarm, the lowa statesman denies that there is anything serious the matter with him. "I was advised by my doctors to take a little rest," ho said, "and that is the reason some of my dates have been canceled. lam feeling well, and expect that with the cessation from labors which I will enjoy this summer I will be able to return to Washington with renewed vigor. There is much work to be done during the coming session and I must bear my part in the fight." Senator Cummins is nearly as enthu siastio a golfer as President Taft, and misses his daily exercise on the links. Cigars have also been a hobby with the lowa legislator, and to be denied the pleasure of the fragrant weed, to gether with golf, is expected to cause Mr. Cummins some pangs of regret that his heart is not exactly normal. MIDDLETOWN WRECK IS UNDER INVESTIGATION Traffic Officials and R. R. Com mission Seek Solution CINCINNATI, July 6.—Traffic offi cials of the Cicinnati, Hamilton & Day ton arfd of the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis railroad systems, assisted by high officials from New York and members of the state rail road commission, today went over the evidence concerning the Middletown wreck. The inquest will begin Friday. The question of responsibility for the disaster hinges on the delivery or non delivery of orders to the passenger train to wait three milea north of Mid dletown for the freight train to take a siding. The pilot of the passenger train says he never received these orders, and the crew of the freight has produced them as Justification for their presence on the track in front of the flyer. FIRE IN HOLD OF BIG STEAMER EXTINGUISHED SAN DIEGO, July 6.—After a des perate struggle lasting nearly three weeks against a fire whose obscure lo cation rendered It difficult to combat, the flames that had been slowly con suming the cargo in the afterhold of the American-Hawaiian freighter Alas kan were this afternoon pronounced by Fire Chief Almgren to be practically extinguished.

She was closely veiled and started her testimony In almost inau dible tones, until Attorney Norton pro tested and the commission ordered her veil removed. VISITED WOMAN AT COTTAGE Sidney Reeve, deputy city prose cutor, plied her with questions, elicit ing the testimony that during the time that Blanche Ryan lived at a question able report that the witness ran at 540 New High street, in 1907, Dixon was a caller on Miss Ryan on an average of three times a week. "Where," asked Reeve, "did Elanche Ryan receive Captain Dixon?" - "In her room." "Was he In uniform?" "He was," "Was he alone with her during these visits?" "Yes." The witness narrated an occurrence of a later date at a cottage in which Blanche Ryan was living at Sixteenth street and Grand avenue, In which the Ryan woman accused Clara Vernon of stealing a pair of gold cuff buttons from a patron of the house at 540 New High street. Captain Dixon acted as mediator In the affair, which ended In the two women coming to blows. "Dixon told me," said the witness, "that unless I returned the cuff buttons he would arrest me." "What did you say to him?" asked Reeve. "I told him that he was a long way off his beat and that he had no right to Interfere." Morton's cross-examination did not shake the testimony of the •witness, she continuing to assert that during the three weeks the Ryan woman was with her Captain Dlxon was a visitor at the resort no fewer than nine times. Attorney Morton endeavored to have the witness say that women of the local underworld bear a hatred for Captain Dlxon. "I cannot answer for the others," she responded, "but, as far as I am con cerned, I have nothing against him." Officer Mack, a former member of the purity Bouad, was returned to the stand to show that he had no connec tion with the false report that went In to the chief regarding the raid on a disorderly house at 316H South Spring street on February 4of this year. The report, which was made by former Officer B. R. Barker, stated that the women arrested were picked up on Spring street and on Broadway, not mentioning the raid on the Mallory house. Mack said that Parker had signed the report with his name and turned It in without his having read It. There was a hint that Dlxon had pro tected the Mallory house, but Mack claimed that Dixon had warned him regarding the character of the place on many occasions. DIXOJI TESTIFIES FOR SELF Just before noon Captain Dlxon was put on the stand and offered his de fense. He said that the "Dixie" was not named after him, but that It bore the name before he met lta keeper, Blanche Ryan. As to the loss of the locket by Hale, he disclaimed any con nection with the theft. When the visits he made to Blanche' Ryan were suggested, he asserted that he had made visits to her for the pur pose of securingl Information concern ing violators of the law. "Were your relations with her wholly of a nature such as exists between an officer and an informer?" "They were," responded Dixon. He admitted that Blanche Ryan felt kindly toward him, as he had been in strumental in ridding the city of Tom Ray, a convict, who had threatened to kill her. The accused captain acknowledged he had received and kept a vase which Blanche Ryan sent him as a Christmas present. He gave as his reason for so doing a disinclination to hurt the wom an's feelings by returning the present. The commission Inquired minutely Into Dixon's financial standing, In con nection with rumors- that he had been receiving bribes. He testified that he had made money through fortunate real estate Investments, and now has between $13,000 and $14,000. To show his whereabouts on the night of the attempted raid on the San Fer nando building gambling rooms, Dixon put Joseph Thorpe on the stand, who testified that Dlxon was at his house from early evening until close to mid night, and during all of that time Dixon did not use the telephone. Secretary Hill of the central police station was questioned regarding the visits of former Officer Bartlett and Special Officer Sam Solomons to Cap tain Dixon's office at the central sta tion. Hill referred several times to the purity squad, until Mayor Alexander interjected, "I think they are mis named, for their ideas of purity do not coincide with mine, judging from one of them recently dismissed from the de partment." • ENDEAVORS TO RETRACT As there were still twenty or more witnesses to be examined in order to clear the name of William D. Gage from the stigma which he considered Captain Dixon had cast on It through the epithets he alleged Dlxon applied to him, Attorney Morton said: "We will do Mr. Gage the Justice of stating that we think he was not at any time conscious of harboring in his hotel any questionable characters. We further belive that In view of the re ports which came to Captain Dixon he was Justified In believing that Gage was what he Is accused of having called him." The color rapidly mounted to Mayor Alexander's face. "Mr. Morton," he said, "put yourself in Gage's place. He was called a name that you and I would have resented with a pistol ball—and now you try to pass it off as a mere nothing. Did Cap tain Dlxon have the right to believe the word of fallen women against a de cent man, such as Gage?" Morton attempted to make a reply, but the mayor continued: "It 1& «.he most notorious attempt to blacker! a man's character that I have ever heard of."
