Washington May 24Jtoosevelt
Is tin Insurgent for their > battle cry
In the fight for reelection this fall
tho house progressives are planning
to sweep Iloo8uvet Into the midst at
a terrific campaign The secret In
formation on which the Insurgents
based their assurance of Roosevalti
active support against Cannonln
was available for the first time to
day The situation revives the unpub
lI bed report made to the Insurgent
caucus In March 1 1909 by l a commit
tee composed of Nelson of Wiscon
sin Madison of Kansas and Gard
ner of Massachusetts charged with
the mission1 of obtaining the endorse
ment of Roosevelt for Insurgent pol
icies In the closing days of his ad
The following statements aro In
clothed In the report March 3 1909
Roosevelt proposed to give Nelson a
letter endorsing tho fight on Cannon
and expressed himself as In sym
pathy with tho progressive move
ment He said Cannon la the
greatest obstacle to my efforts to
secure good legislation In my admin i
The afternoon of March 3 the In
surgent committee called on IRtoose
veil and Nelson outlined their plan
of attack on Cannon asking Roose
velt officially to endorse the move
Roosevelt declared his sympathy
with the Insurgents but felt he
should remain silent not wanting
to embarrass Taft After two hours
he raId he would write a letter that
could bcueed among the house without
out reserve but not for publication
The letter was a complete endorse
ment of the IristirgehV program
When the committee left the white
houro It was understood Roosevelt
would write n letter the next day
The next day they called while In
auguration preparations were on
Taft was present when tho commit
tee arrived Roosevelt arose and
shook Nelsons hand and said Im
sorry lie said be reached a decl
blon that the latter would be un
wise from what Taft had said Then
ho took Gardner and Nelson to Taft
to plead with him for several min
utes to help the Insurgents Tart
I turned off the matter 1n a Joking
Roosevelt has not spoken politics
publicly since I The Insurgents have
written Roosevelt frequently since
and his replies are guarded care
Throughout the Interview tho only
objection Roosevelt made to the pub
lic declaration of his sympathy with
the progressive movement was that
his successor might be embarrassed
I dont wont to seem to Inter
fere at all I dont want to appear
to seize the reins from the hands of
my successor he said
One of the last nets of Roosevelts
administration as ho stood In the
presidents room at the capItol was
to take Representatives Gardner and
Nelson by the hand and lead them
to Taft and plead with the presi
dentelect to at least keep your
hands off This he has done
Within a half hour Roosevelt sur
rendered time presidency to Tart and
severed himself from politics

Because of the limited financial
condition of the county school board
it may be Impossible to hold the first
session of the county High school la
the new building at Heath unless the
citizens of the town respond with
donations that were promised for the
locating of the school it will re
quire all of the available money of
the school board to pay for the erec
tion of the building and leave the
board without funds to equip it for
the holding of school
As a result the citizens of Heath
will be given an opportunity to pay
the donations that were offered or
the High school will be taught at

rivalry between Lone Oak and Heath
was at the greatest for the location
