IS OF SCATHING NATURE REGRETS THAT ANY BODY OP MEN SHOULD BE SO FAR FOR GETFUL OF THEIR; DUTY DE NIES INFLUENCE CHARGE. Chicago, April 21. Reiterating hia denunciation of Moyer and Haywood, officials of the Western Fedrtion of Miners, charged with implication in the murder of ex-Governor Sieuneu berg of Idaho, as "undesirable citi zens." IVesidcnt Roosevelt, in a letter addressed to Honore Jaxon of Chica go, chairman of the Cook county Moyer-Haywooil conference, just made public, replies scathingly to the criti cisms of his recent letter. The president says hi? regret any body of men should so far forget their duty. to their country as by formation of societies and in other ways to on deavor to influence justice and coerce court or jury; that they, not he, arn trying to influence justice, and he con demns what he calls their flagrant 1m properiety in the matter. He says he Indicated no opinion as to their guilt of the Steunenberg mur der, but that it was a simple absur dity to suppose that because a man is on trial he is free from criticism as to his manner of life. He said he might as well be accused of trying to influence the suits against llarrlman, some of whose friends had also criti cised him. He said Moyer aud Hay wood stand as representatives of those who habitually appear as guilty of incitement to or apology for blood shed aud violence. He added that he was profoundly indifferent to the con demnation of him for his criticisms of the undesirable types of citizens, re gardless of the power of either l3h or capital. GOMPERS WON'T TALK.
