It was not inappropriate that the
kings favorite dog should have been
accorded a place among the chief
mourners at the funeral of Edward
VII Perhaps the dog he petted
among all that bedizened assembly
and artificial pomp was the only

passes over a personal Joss of true
companionship To the dog alone
1 Edward was never the potentate but
ever the gentle friend Between
Edward and every human creature

Remarkable as it may seem to the
short memories of the Washington
r correspondents the startling an
r nouncement that Theodore Roosevelt
doesnt like Joe Cannon did not
shake society to the core Next week
perhaps we shall be paying tele
graph tolls on a message conveying
the Information that Joe Cannon
t Jlk fsssMfssVe Roosevelt
f 1vjn by surprise
r v
tionfl capital informed ua they had
learned on good authority thatI I
Roosevelt desisted from any political I
Activity on the side of the Insur I
genU which would embarrass bile I
successor and these same Insur
gents and Washington correspond
ents may take It from us that Mr I
Roosevelt will continue to desist I
from any political activity that wl11I I
embarrass Mr Taft He took Tofts j
advice to keep hands off the congres I
sional fight and some day we will nilI I
0know that Mr Roosevelt had ncI I
customed himself during the preced I
ing four years to taking advice from
Mr Taft Truth to tell Mr Roose
velt during their acquaintance bad
come to admire Mr Taft very much
for his tact good Judgment sincer
ity and views of public policy In
those issues l Involving federal super
Vision Mr Taft has gone much lure
ther than Mr Roosevelt ever did
and a complatlon of legislative re
salts and executive activity will dem
onstrate that Mr Taft has accomp
lished more during his year In Office 1
In the direction of perfecting MrI I
Roonerelta own policies than MtI I
Roosevelt did during his whole
term Yet this does not reflect on
Mr Roosevelts ability or sincerity
since somebody had to make a start
and getting really started la usually
the hardest part of any enterprise
That Roosevelt sympathizes with the
antiCannon crusade was manifest
long before he retired from the pros
Idency and If the Cannon crowd in I
the house persist in trying to frus
trate the party program Mr TaftI I
will be actively enlisted against I
them too but to expect Mr Taft to
pick out a congressional leader Is
vain Ife baa enough good sense to
Icnoar that the natural leader of the
majority will be produced by the
natural law of selection Until that
time the president Wll use the tools
ho finds to carry out Ws policies
through legislation If the people
desire President Taft to have better
tools than Joe Cannon Lorlmer Ald

them to Ijlm he has nothing to do
with their election

crowd with the probability that the
society will back another candidate
for congress against him Whenever
a newspaper or a public man chant
pions a specific cause and disagrees
with the beneficiaries of it about the
best means to a common end
straightway be is branded a traitor
Such people consider the newspaper
or the public men Instruments to be
used by them In their wayfor their
purposes and gratitude is an un
thought of factor in the case

end of the desk towards me Dr
Rivers who was standing about the t
middle of the desk grabbed his 1
right wrist tried to pull it around t
so I would be out of line of fire
While doing this I distinctly noticed I
Dr Purcell twist his hand in my di
rection as he fired Thl ball struck
me In the left elbow My left band I
dropped Instantly to my aide and
from that moment I could not lift It I
or move It and did not for several
days At the same time and follow
ing Immediately his second shot ho I
advanced further towards mo and
presented the pistol almost at my
breast I seized the muzzle of the
pistol with my right hand and push
ed It upwards at the same moment
the pistol fired blistering the palm
of my band and powder burning my
first and second fingers At the time
this third shot was fired I noticed
that Dr Rivers had his left arm
around Dr Purcells neck and his
right hand grasping Dr Purcell
right hand After this third shot was
fired I remember to have but had
one thing In view and little else be
sides and that was to keep Dr Pur
cells pistol hand In the air so that
he could not shoot me When Dr P
H Stewart entered the room I re
marked to him that Dr Purcell had
a pistol and had shot me and asked
him to take the pistol away Dr
Bass then Informed me that Dr
Rivers had the pistol ad I left Dr
Purcells omce with Dr Bats and
went Into Drs Bass and Stewarts
office for temporary drculng to my
arm and I was then carried to the
Riverside hospital
I desire to state that I had no
arms or weapons of any kind that I
did not advance upon or threaten or
attack Dr Purcell in any manner
The pocket knife mentioned In the
newspaper statements belonged to
Dr Rivers and was not In my posses
sion at all
In conclusion I will state that I
went to Dr Rivers office and while
there went to Dr Purcejls omce
upon Dr Purcollaown Invita
tlon that I had no weapon of any
anykind I
thought but what a mutual explana
tion would Instantly clear the entire
matter I did not use any bitter
language neither did I use any oaths
at any time
To the best of my knowledge I
have given you a complete statement
of this arrafln detail and will leave
