Most Flagrant Attack Ever Made in Mouse Upon Chief Executive and
His ActsPassing of Roosevelt Is ThemeNew York Congressman
Characterizes Him as Gargoyle Who Is Always Good to Laugh at
Washington Jau IS Characteriz
ing President Roosevelt as a gargoyle
and as this pigmy descendant of
Dutch trades people and charging
him with having established a court
in the White House which would have
delighted the heart of his admirer
Alexander Hamilton Mr Willett of
New York in the house of represen
tatives today made one of the most
bitter attacks on tho chief exccuilve
ever heard in that body Mr VII
lelt took for his theme The Passing
of Roosevelt and in a speech of
great length dealt with numerous ot
ihe Presidents acts since he came
into office and scathingly denounced
tllemMter declaring that In the face of
all sorts of conditions Americans
acre possessed ot a universal sense
of humor Mr Willctt said to such
people it must he confessed a chief
magistrate who has himself no sense
of humor moving like a horse tender
over the hayfield of American activi
ties stirring up every drying blade
of once green grass to let it fall drlor
than before quarreling one day with
the practical politicians then with the
parlyourhalrInthcmiddle reforms
then with the socialists then with the
great Industrial corporations wresting
in agony over the spirit of Noah Web
ster and our glorious English tongue
taking a fall out of nature fakirs ex
horting our women to avoid race sui
cide cannot be an unmixocl nuisance
He plays the tyrant to be sure
but ho Is a tyrant who fears the car
nival tickler He sees things that have
a bad smell but the fresh breezo ot
Capitol Hill does not let the odor lin
ger He tries cur patience but he is al
ways good to laugh at Thank aw
en for the things that make us iuign
Without them we might easily become
inw untamed AngloSaxons maklui
much of Magna Charta bellowing
about an effete bill of rights or oven
ready to fight for freedom of thought
freedom of speech and freedom ot
press as lId our uncivilized ancestor0
at Lexington and Bunker Hill
Mr Willett gave a brief biography
of Mr Roosevelts beginning with
his experiences as a cowboy dowp to
the present time and accused hint
In his early manhood of having had
preposterlous notions of having knif
ed Secretary Long of being a war
rior alone in Cuba of having won the I
poernorship of New York by a more
lluke when the false halo of San Juan I
Hill was above his head tho bene
ficiary of assassins and last anl
crowning piece of luck the nominee
for president when all the aggressive
elements of passion wanted to seo
their own candidate defeated the
mammoth jocularlity has got to laugh
Tvlth every appearance the gargoyle
has been funny from the hour It left
Up native quarry
Continuing Mr Wlllett said
And Mr Chairman should the gen
tlemen who view this curious figure
wlth feigned admiration ask me how
ely son of Adam can be at the sam
time a hay tedder a jocularity and
a gargoyle I can only answer that
thif particular hero Is an eccentric
exception to all rules a solecism Uh
generis a mixedmetaphorvlvant an
impossibility a comet that roves at
will regardless of the limitations of
order and law that apply to earth and
moon to stars and planets
He boasts of Irish blood but no
historic Irishman would have treated
an ally as he treated Mr Harrirnan
He exults In a strain of the old
Hugenot but the French gentleman
does not fly Into a passion and lash
the horse of a timid young girl whoso
only offense is inadvertently passing
the royal party in a public highway
Even Louis XLV was not that sort of
a tyrant and l nry IV Henry ot Na
varre the great Hugenot king wore j
the white plume of noblesse oblige
He tells us that southern arlato 1
crats vere among his polyglot ances
tors but I can inform him that If till
wife of a Robert ToombB or of a Jef
ferson Davis had been treated by him I
as Mrs Minor Morris wan he would
have been called out or branded as a
coward if ho had been a thousand I
times a president I
He is proud to insist that the fam 1
ily whose name he bears cornea from
Holland but his ready surrender to
the politicians of his own party make
it clear enough that fat burghers who
put up their shutters at the first beat
been hlK
01 the war drum must have
progenitors He beats the Dutch
however as even his severest
must confess
Are you shocked that a chief mag
istrate should justify such characteri
zation I am shocked too Do you
cay that the place he holds should
make us all dumb before him Hear
what this fountain of Billingsgate has
said of his predecessors In that hlcn
office and own that no mans tongue
should be stilled by such a cpnsldera
tkm He quoted from President Rooeo
volts books in which the President is
alleged to hive attacked Washington
Jrfterson Monroe Jackson Tylor
Perce and ethers and said that the
President had toleration only fOr
the Adamses who stood for federalist
aristocracy and admiration for Alex
ander Hamilton the defeated cham
pion of a limited monarchy
Of course said Mr Wllleit those
condemnations roar as gently as any
cooing dove when compared with his
denunciation of John Paul Jones as a
pirate of Napoleon the Great as
utterly unscrupulous of New Eng
lands Idolized Wendell Phillips as al
ways either mischievous or rldlcul
PUS and usially both of Thomas
Paine the first champion of American
liberty as a filthy little atheist of
Miracle believing Roman Catholics as
persons of arrested mental develop
ment of Quakers as quite as undo
rirablo citizens as duelists But he
has been frank enough in abusing ott
er presidents to shut the lips of his
defenders on the dignity of the presi i
dential office
Mr Wlllett declared that consis
tence is a jewel which the gargoylo Is i
always throwing to the swine No I
Iving he said in any limited monarchy
was ever half so exigent or ever halt
so implacable For a president hg
added you must go back to Napol
eon the Great the oldest member of
the gargoyles Ananias club who used
to ask the wives of his thrifty fav I
orites whether they could only afford
cue gown a year who said once to
the wife of one of his fighting mar
shals Your dress is dirty and who
insisted on doing all the matchmaking
in his official circles
The Democracy of Lincoln he said
the bluff Americanism of Grant and
Cleveland the equally American suav
ilyoC Arthur and McKinley had pass
ed into history along with the jo
viality of Garfield and the noncon
lormlst thrift of Rutherford B HayeV
We have a king and a court now
Mr Willett exclaimed as good an I
imitation of areal tiling known to
the nobility of monarchial countries
as the scion of a family of trading
Dutchmen can concoct I
At this juncture Mr Willott called
tile roll of the socalled Ananias club
and said
The earth is intoxicated and reels
ground our jocularity Ho alone Is the
personification of sobriety tempera
ton ss of statement calmness In
speech and action The evermoving
hay tedder hurries over the field
Ihrowing upward the clover of politics
the timothy of zoology the bluegrass I
ot history and letting each blade tall i
a little drier than It wa before
Jealousy you can read in the gar
goyles distorted features You look
on those twisted lines and It is easy
oh so easy to understand the insol
ence toward Democracy the one great
figure ot the SpanishAmerican war
Die hero who took Manila with tho
worst ships a rotten bureaucracy can
find for him
The persistent defamation of Ad
mi ra1 Uley who really fought the
bat Santiago bay the insults
hen 1 General Miles whose coun
pel was Ignored in the expensive blun
ders of the land campaign at Santi
ago The President Mr Wlllett declared
rhowed his teeth at all real hers
because real heroes are gall and
wormwood to bogus ones I
Continuing his denunciation Mr
Willett charged that the President had
bulldozed President Castro had seen
tne Filipinos brutally treated had ma
jooned Colonel Stewart whom he did
not like had kept a young woman
from earning an honest living by tell
ing the truth had allpwed scandal
ous conditions to exist in the army
and navy had compelled his subor
dinates to act as hunting dogs for the
Czar of Russia In trailing down mon

practically reestablished the John Ad
ams alien and sedition laws had forc
ed desertions from the navy by allow
ing intolerable treatment of sailors
at the hands of the aristocracy of
Annapolis officers had permitted the
degrading of soldiers at West Point
Nile had been put to menial work and I
had given a Scotch verdict in connec
1 tion with the alleged Panama scandal I
In conclusion he said among other
I You may say then that one indi
vidual gargoyle does not count for so
I riuch after all No not in the devel
opment of the centuries but he
counts vitally and continuously as at
lecting the people who have to live
under him And the change from a
Nero fiddling while Rome is burning
I to Vespasian calmly devoted to secur
ing as good government as tendencies I
will permit is a change to be as de
voutly welcomed by us as by the an

Willetts remarks he was called to or

exclaimed He is going ahead with
a lot of rot that neither the house por

Mr Gardner of Massachusetts to ob

the chair ruled that the words were
By this time the house was In a
furore Above the babel of voices Mr
Oardner was heard to make the point
that a member having been found out
of order in debate he was no longer
entitled to the floor
Messrs Hepburn Iowa and Mann
Illinois with copies of the rules In
their hands appealed for recognition
Mr Hepburn Insisted that Mr Willet
chould take his seat Mr Mann In the
meantime reading some rules on tho
case The chrir directed Mr Willet
to take his seat which he reluctantly
Before the chair passed on the
points of Messrs Mann and Hepburn
Mr Chandler Mississippi moved that
Mr Willet be jJlowed to proceed In
On that motion a vote was taken
with the result that by a party vote or

to hear the New York member
In vain Mr Fitzgerald of Now York
ought to have the chair construe the
rules so that Mr Willet might proceed

New York Physicians Are Interested

are so interested the case of Flor
ence Smith a 15yearold girl or
Patchogue L I who has swallowed 1 i
half a paper of pins from which she I
has suffered comparatively little that
she will bo brought to this city thin
week for an Xray examination I
An account of the case will be pub
lished In thp Medical Journal The
child swallowed the pins numbering
about 100 three weeks ago and al
though she complained of pains phy
ofolans say that the protective walls
v hlch nature builds in such cases will
probably save her life A physician
speaking of the case said
Although about 50 pins are still
lodged In the abdominal tract the
tract does not seem to have been
badly affected by them While tho
points of the pins have unquestionably
perforated the tract the heads of tho
pins seem to have stopped up the per
orations Nature as far as we can
judge is also building adhesive walls I
around the points of the pins The
copper and zinc of the pins may cause
Miss Smith to suffer from chronic an
romia and debility all her life But
she will nevertheless get well
