Indorses New York Governor's
Attitude on Direct Primaries
in Outlook Editorial
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
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
"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
"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
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.
"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.
"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. Duffy's
Pure Malt Whiskey is the medi
cine you need. It has been doing
this for over half a century, and
the fact is attested to by thou
sands of letters we have received
from patients everywhere indors
ing it as the world's greatest
medicine in all cases where a
tonic stimulant and body builder
is necessary.
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey
is an absolutely pure distillation
of malted grain, great care being
used to have every kernel thor
oughly malted, thus producing a
liquid food, tonic and stimulant,
requiring no digestion, in the
form of a medicinal whiskey. Its
palatability and freedom from in
jurious substances render it so
that it can be retained by the
most sensitive stomach. Its gen
tle and invigorating properties in

organ in the body. It makes the
old feel young and keeps the
young strong and vigorous.

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."
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
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.

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
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.

from the packed lobby of the council
chamber. 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.
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
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
"I told him that he was a long way
off his beat and that he had no right to
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.
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." •
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."
Prosecution and defense rested their
cases, and the matter was set for ar
gument at 8 p. m.
