was on vour side in any question of morals or politics, you could count on him
every time. If he were opposed he made no empty professions of favor or
neutralitv. With all this he was not aggressive or combative, but mild m
manner, conciliatory in temper and seeking the ways of peace so far as con,
sistent with conscience and duty. While not possessing the educational advan
tages that have fallen to the lot of the younger generation he was able at all
times to exercise the influence that comes from the recognized possession of
Jigb personal character.
le public utilities bill "of New York State, which Congressman Alex
described, when here, as the most important piece of legislation pending

signed by Mayor McClellan. By its terms all the public utilities of New York
?Hy, gas, water and electric light service, railways, etc., will pass under the

The withdrawal of the Mahuka site proposition leaves the way open to

proposal enlisted general support and is in shape now to, get concrete expression.

feels the loss of the Oceanic company's Australian service. Still things are
not so bad in these respects as they were once, for, not so many years ago, the

The President declared that Mr.
Long is the worst of a group of literary
offenders, who claijn to be writing
facts, but whose "impossible" and "un
mathematical" stories are so grossly
inaccurate that It is a shame to let
school children read them. In particu

From his home in Stamford, Conn
the victim of the President's literary
rancor asks newspaper readers to de
cide who is right.
"xou aeciare me inmg to De a ma
thematical impossibility, and declare
by 'no possibility could a wolf perform
the feat. "
Dr. Long declares he knows from his
own observation and from the testi
mony of Indians that wolves do some
times kill in this way, and then quotes
the signed and witnessed statement of
S. K. Hapidan, an educated Sioux In
dian, who states he saw a horse which
a wolf had killed by tearing its chest
In addition to this, Dr. Long says he
himself had seen a deer which had been
slain in .this manner by a wolf, and
further recites that an Indian, Matty
Mitchell f Bonny Bay, Newfoundland,
declares that the big, white wolf f re
quently kills caribou in this manner.
Continuing, Dr. Long says: "These
are the facts underlying the incident
which you declare to be impossible and
false. If this testimony is not enough
I will fill it up to full scripture meas
" You can not at this stage, Mr.
Roosevelt, take refuge behind the pres
idential office and maintain silence
You have forfeited your right to that
silence by breaking it by coming out
in publication to attack a private citi
zen. If your talk of a square deal is
not all a sham, if your frequent moral
preaching is not hypocrisy, I call upon
you, as President, as a man, to come
out and admit the error and injustice
of your charge in the same open and
public way in which you made it." '
