ABUSING THE CIVIL SERVICE.
Many charges have been brought
against Mr. Roosevelt for what has
been called presidential dictation. It
has been said that he used his power'
for the nomination! and election of Mr.
Taft In order to do this he would
have to violate his civil service reform
A Richmond man, Mr. W. D. Foulke,
stands high in the councils of the Civil
Service Reform League. This league
has Investigated the actions of every
president in regard to hla civil service
actions. Before the campaign started
Mr. Foulke went to the headquarters of
the reform league and asked If there
was any truth in the charges made
against Roosevelt. There was absolute
ly no truth found in the statement that
Roosevelt had used his influence in the
civil service for Taft.
Lucius B. Swift, of Indianapolis,
comes forward with a full statement
of the civil service in politics which
shows up the falsity of the charges
against Roosevelt in regard to Taft.
"The attempt that has been made for
many months and is still being made
to hurt President Roosevelt in the
good opinion of the people and to dls
3 credit Mr. Taft because part cf the fed
eral place holders work In politics for
Taft is not creditable to those who are
making it. The federal service has two
divisions. One Is the classified serv
ice, which Is covered by the merit sys
tem and now embraces' 190,000 places.
Over the head of every occupant of
these places hangs an ax, and if he
meddles in politics the ax falls and off
comes his head. This fact is never
mentioned by Mr. Bryan and Mr. Kern
and the haters of President Roosevelt
find Mr. Taft. Originally every place
holder was active in politics, and this
continued even after the adoption of
the merit system. Mr. Cleveland had a
rule of modified activity which he did
not enforce. He dismissed a republi
can and a democrat for violating that
rule, and then reinstated the democrat
left the republican out. When Mr.
Roosevelt became president the at
tempt to keep the entire service out
of politics had broken down. He took
a frank and open stand. No man in
the 190,000 places in the classified ser
vice should meddle in politics, but the
rest were left free to do so. I do not
believe that any federal place holder
should work in politics, and President
Roosevelt does not believe in. it, but
in his Judgment he carried the reform
as far as it could be carried at the
time. Considering the stupendous gain
which has been made, due more to
Roosevelt than to any other one In
fluence, no reformer who is not an in
grate will turn against him for this de
cision. The rest will come In good time
and eventually measures requiring
congressional action will be taken
whereby the entire service will In ef
fect be classified.
"It is true that a largo number of
members of the unclassified service
have worked in politics this year, but
they have been left entire freedom as
to whom they shall work for. The
charge that they have been "ordered"
to work either before or since the nom
inations for any particular man, or
that they have been used by President
Roosevelt in behalf of any man, or that
their freedom to work for any particu
lar man has' been in the slightest de
gree abridged or that they have been
in the least degree censured or would
have run the least danger of losing
their places for working for a man not
In favor with the president Is absolute
ly without foundation. They have
worked and now work, as they have al
ways worked. They have worked no
more than they have always worked,
and every man woh has been familiar
with the civil service or knows any
thing at all about It knows this to be
But Mr. Swift does not stop here.
What would Bryan do?
What about Lamb and Taggart?
Says Mr.. Swift:
"Mr. Bryan Is silent as to what, if
elected, he proposes to do with the
classified civil service, which now em
braces 100,000 places. This part of the
service is covered by the merit. sys
tem. In 1896 and again in 1900 Mr.
Bryani boldly declared for the destruc
tion of that system. I gather from his
speeches that he has never been wrong
In any position he has taken on any
public question free trade, tariff re
form, free silver, public ownership of
railroads, and of course the merit sys
tem. If he has ever frankly confess
ed that he was mistaken on any ques
tion I have been unable to discover it.
Is he ready to confess that he was mis
taken in proposing to destroy the mer
it sytem in 1896 and in 1900? It Is not
an answer to say that the present Bry
an platform proposes to enforce the
law. That was In bothplatforms upon
which Cleveland was elected, and in
his first administration, thanks to his
party leaders the law went to the dogs
and when he enforced it in his second
administration his party kicked him
out and went over to Bryan. Cleve
land was a friend of the law. The rec
ord is that Bryan is its declared ene
my. "The history of civil service reform
bristles with examples of how the law
may be killed in administration. The
Gormans and the Voorheeses have
been succeeded by the Taggarta and
the Lambs, mortal enemies of the mer
it system, and these are the men who
are at the elbow of Mr. Bryan and who
have his ear today. Mr. Taft's record
needs no correction. In season and
out of season, openly and without re
servation, he has always been the out
spoken friend of the law. We know
what he will do. President Roosevelt
has done more for the merit system
than all other presidents together, and
Mr. Tint will continue this along with
the other Roosevelt policies. The
merit system now extends into every
corner of Indiana, and of the whole
country It has proved itself the most
democratic method of distributing pub
lic that has ever been- devised, and its
good economic results aro beyond ques
tion. It has opened a vast field of em
ployment which may be obtained with
out sacrifice of manhood before some
big or little political boss. Voters
who believe in this system and who
want to see it maintained can not af
ford to vote to place it under control
of its open enemies."
And Marshall says: "To the victor
belongs the spoils."
If there is anyone who believes that
the cold standard is a good thing, or
that it must be maintained, I warn
him not to vote for me, because !
promise him that it will not be main
tained in this country any longer than
I am able to get rid of It.
W. J. Bryan, at Knoxvllle, Tenn,
Oct. 5, 1896.
I notice that I am described by some
as a conservative. I am more radical
than I was In 1896 and have nothing
to withdraw on economic questions
which have been under discussion.
W. J. Bryan, sjfcondon, England, July
Here are two unequivocal state
ments from Mr. Bryan. One In 1896
the other in 1906.
What is the logical Inference? That
Bryan is just as radical as ever. He
himself says so. He said it two years
ago. Not only was this on his return
from his world tour, but it was but a
few days before he uttered his views
about governmental ownership of rail
roads. That showed him as he really
is. A radical of radicals "with noth
ing to withdraw on economic ques
tions which have been under discus
sion." And yet these are the economic
questions which unsettled the whole
business world by mere contemplation
and dread of them. A debased cur
rency, a tariff for revenue only, and
governmental ownership of railroads!
Yet two years later, in this year of
our Lord 1908 comes this same Mr.
Bryan and poses for the matured man,
whose continental tour has sobered
him to such an extent that he refused
to put any of these exploded theories
into the platform which he himself
was the author of.
Be that as it may, no one can fail to
see the wavering course and the zlg
zag path that Bryan has followed. Mr.
Bryan himself has given the warning
that no one should vote for him who
did not want them put in effect. Shall
we believe Bryan's words, or shall we
think he is only talking for votes.
If he is merely talking without
meaning It, what sort of man is that
for the presidency.
If he means it, it means that he,
who has been twice repudiated, should
be defeated this year as before, as
the advocator of the most dangerous '
and Insidious perils which have ever
been advanced in the history of the

If he is not sincere, what right has
he for your vote.

Washington. Oct. 27. "I suppose
heaven helps us to join our hands
firmly," said Japanese Ambassador
Korgor Takahlra with emotion, as he
discussed the visit of the American
fleet to Japan, which has just come
to au end. Ambassador Takahira had
a short while before returnins from
the White House, where he was the
guest of President Roosevelt at lun
cheon, and to whom he delivered a
message of thanks from the Japanese
emperor for that which the president
sent as the fleet departed. The Baron
personally thanked the president for
having sent the fleet to Japanese wat
ers, and said its visit had furthered to
a great degree-the feeling of friendli
ness held by the Japanese for the peo
ple of the United States. Mrs. Roose
velt was present at the luncheon.
The following is the text of the
message from the emperor which Am
bassador Takahira conveyed to Presi
"To the President of the United
States of America: I thank you most
sincerely for your very kind message
which the American ambassador de

was so satisfactory and agreeable to
you and to the people of the United
States. I desire to express my appre
ciation of your kindness in accepting
the invitation of my government for
the fleet to visit Japan, since by that
