Washington, D. C., Nov. 5.—In tho
following signed statement given out
last night, President Roosevelt an
swers the charges made agamst hini
sell and Mr. Cortelyou in public
speeches by Judge Parker, democratic
candidate tor the presidency,
"Wmte House, Washington, D. C.,
Nov. 4, 1904.—Certain slanderous ac
cusations as to Mr. Cortelyou and my
sen nave been repeated time and
again by Judge Parker, the candidate
ot his party lor the office of president.
Ho neither has produced nor can pro
duce any proof ot their truth yet he
has not withdrawn them and as his
position gives them wide currency I
speak now lest the silence of selt- re
spect be misunderstood.
Recites Parker's Charges of Blackmail.
"Mr. Parker's charges are in effect
that the President of the United
States and Mr. Cortelyou, formerly Mr.
Cleveland's executive clerk, then Mr.
McIOnley's and my secretary, then
secretary of commerce and labor, and
now chairman of the republican na
tional committee, have been in a con
spiracy to blackmail corporations, Mr.
Cortelyou using his knowledge gained
while he was secretary of the depart
ment of commerce and labor to extort
money from the corporations, and I,
the President, having appointed him
for this especial purpose. The grava
men of these charges lies in the as
sertion that the corporations have been
blackmailed into contributing, and*in
the implication, which in one or two
of Mr. Parker's speeches has taken
the form practically of an assertion,
that they have been promised certain
immunities or favors or have been as
sured that they would receive some
kind of improper consideration in view
of their contributions.
"That contributions have been made
to the republican committee, as con
tributions have been made to the demo
cratic committee, is not the question
at issue. Mr. Parker's assertion is in
effect that such contributions have
been made for improper motives,
either in consequence of threats or in
consequence of improper promises, di
rect or indirect, on the part of the re
cipients. Mr. Parker knows best
BALLOT IS MIGHTY
ELOQUENT SERMON BY REV. A. E.
CRAIG AT FIRST METHODIST
Right to Vote Is a Sacred Thing—Cost
of the Ballot and Dangers That Be
set It—The Responsibility of
From Monday's Daily.
"The ballot is a little thing yet a
mightier weapon than the sword, it is
as sacred as a leaf torn from the Bible,
it is the agency v.'hich secures our
liberty, it is our power to protest
against' iniquity, it is the agency un
der which all our rights are protect
ed," said Rev. A. E. Craig in an elo
quent address at the First Methodist
Episcopal churcn last evening. Rev.
Craig took for his subject "The Bal
lot" and remarks were heard with
the closest interest and attention by
the large congregation present.
Rev. Craig said that it would be a
wonderful sight next Tuesday when
10,000,000 free men would go to the
ballot box, for the purpose of register
ing their preference as to the men
who should rule over them and spoke
in part as follows:
Cost of the Ballpt.
"Do we realize the cost of this bal
lot. It has been estimated that 4,000
battles have b2en fought to secure for
this generation the right of suffrage.
It had a beginning in the thirteenth
century when the barons of England
faced a weak king and forced from
him the Magna Charta. A surly king
granted its provisions with reluctance
and it became necessary for Cromwell
to lead forth as resolute a people as
ever faced royalty to insist that their
rights be maintained. Through the ef
forts of Gladstone in 1872 the English
people were given more fully the right
of ballot. We have the French revo
lution resulting from the oppression
of the people by the privileged class.
In Russia today the peasantry is the
football of Czarism and no one can
tell what the outcome will be.
America the First.
"America was the first to assert the
right of manhood suffrage, giving the
same right to the laborer as to the
millionaire, the same power to the
ignorant as to the intelligent,
and although there were many
expressions of ridicule and pre
dictions of disaster from other nations
we have stemmed every tide and our
institutions are firmly established.
Right of Suffrage.
"What is the right of suffrage? It
has been suggested that only property
owners should be allowed to vote.
This is an illogical proposition as the
man who has nothing but his labor is
a*: much a property owner as anyone,
as property is but the accumulation of
labor. It has also been suggested
that the right of franchise should be
determined by the educational advan
tages of the voter. This would be to
say the least, a doubtful experiment
as there could be no greater danger to
America and our free institutions than
to have a sub stratum of unrepre
sented manhood where the principles

The President Brands Judge Parker's
Accusations As False and Monstrous.
whether this is true of tlie contribu
tions to his campaign fund which have
come through his trusted friends and
advisers, who represent the great in
terests that stand behind him.
Accusations False and Monstrous.
"But there is not one particle of
truth in the statement as regards any
thing that has gone on in the manage
ment of the republican campaign. Mr.
Parker's accusations agamst Mr. Cor
telyou and me are monstrous. If true
they would brand both of- us forever
with infamy and inasmuch as they are
false, heavy must be the condemna
tion of the man making them. I chose
Mr. Cortelyou as chairman of the na
tional committee after having failed
successively to persuade Elihu Root,
W. Murray Crane and Cornelius N.
Bliss to accept the position. I chose
him with extreme reluctance, because
I could ill spare him from the cabinet.
But I felt that he possessed the high
integrity which I demanded in the
man who was to manage my cam
paign. I am content that Mr. Parker
and I should be judged by the public
on the characters of the two men
whom we chose to manage our cam
paigns—he by the character of his
nominee, Thomas Taggart and I by the
character of Mr. Cortelyou.
Wicked and Atrocious, He Says.
"The assertion that Mr. Cortelyou
had any knowledge gained while in
any official position whereby he Was
enabled to secure and did secure any
contributions from any corporation is
"The assertion that there has been
any blackmail, direct or indirect,
by Mr. Cortelyou or by me is a false
hood. The assertion that there has
been made in behalf and by my au
thority by Mr. Cortelyou or by any
one else any pledge or promise, or
that there has been any understanding
as to future immunities or benefits, in
recognition of any contribution from
any source, is a wicked falsehood.
"That Mr. Parker should desire to
avoid the discussion of principles I
can well understand for it is but the
bare truth to say that he has not at
tacked us on any matter of principle,
of treason and anarchy flourish. There
must be an equality of right before the
law, tne light to say who shall rule
Sacred to Vote.
"It is a sacred thing to vote. When
a man enters the booth, he should do
his righteous duty as his conscience
and God direct. Much has been done
to interfere with the sacred right ot
the ballot, by intimidation, the use of
'repeaters' to cheat honest people out
of their rights and social conditions
in the south. An English lord once
said: 'When Great Britain is power
less to protect the humblest Hindoo
on the Ganges, then the highest noble
man is not safe in his palace on the
Thames' and I believe that when the
United States cannot guarantee to ev
ery colored man the right to vote
without fear, the institutions of our
country are not established on the
firm basis they should be.
Regarding Woman's Suffrage.
"The ballot is more than a right, it
is a responsibility. The advocates of
woman's suffrage say much about
natural rights. When the ma
jority of women of America shall say
that they are ready to assume the re
sponsibility of the ballot I shall be the
last to oppose it but the question I
wish to give to you is. has the minor
ity the right to force the responsibility
upon the majority against their will?
Dangers to Ballot.
"Among the dangers that beset the
ballot I mi?ht mention the apathetic
voter and the ignorant voter. By the
ignorant voter I do not mean the uned
ucated man as he may be better pre
pared to vote intelligently on the ques
tions at issue than the brightest grad
uate of a college because he has given
careful thought to them. There is
also a danger from the solid social or
national vote, such as a solid German
vote, or solid Irish vote. But the
danger from the venal vote is greater
than all the others combined. There
should be no need of great campaign
"The ballot has its limitations in its
power, influence and what it is able
to do for society. L-et us not think that
when we have cast our vote we have
done our ultimate duty. We have the
church and t-^e school and through
these may work for the uplifting of
humanity and the bringing in of the
kingdom of God."
Bloomfleld ,Nov. 5.—The republican
campaign closed here Saturday with
an address by Senator J. P. Dolliver,
delivered to one of the largest audi
ences that ever gathered in the court
room on a similar occasion. "Hold on
to the fortunate business conditions
now existing" was declered by the
speaker to be the paramount issue of
the campaign. For nearly two hours
Senator Dolliver held the interest of
the people while discussing the Ameri
can form of government, good citizen
ship, the tariff system, trusts and cor
porations. A vein of humor running
through the address drew from the au
dience continual outburts of laughter
and at intervals hearty applause. Af
ter paying a beautiful tribute to the
memory of President McKinley. he
passed to President Roosevelt, saying,
"We will not only elect him president
but we will give him a congress to help
him." With most sanguine statements
regarding the re-election of Major
Lacey, Senator Dolliver closed the ad
dress which was one of intellectual
pleasure to all.
The first hurrahs of the campaign
were heard Saturday afternoon when
the only political demonstration of the
campaign were made by the republi
cans in honor of the presence in the
city of United States Senator J. P.
Dolliver. About thirty mounted ronyh
riders with flags and banners marched
around the square and. excellent- music
or upon any action of the government,
save after first misstating that prin
ciple or action. But I cannot under
stand how any honorable man, a can
didate for the highest office in the gift
of the people, can take refuge not
merely in personalities, but in such
base and unworthy personalities.
Refers to Parker in Hill Campaign.
"If deemed it necessary to support
my Hat denial by any evidence I would
ask all men of common sense to pon
der well what has ben done in this
campaign by Mr.Cortelyou, and to com
pare it with what Mr. Parker himself
did when he was managing Mr. Hill's
campaign for governor and to com
pare what has been done as regards
the great corporations and moneyed in
terests under this administration with
what was done under the last demo
cratic administration while Mr. Olney
was attorney general I would ask all
honest men whether they seriously
deem it possible that the course this
administration has taken in every mat
ter from the Northern Securities suit
to the settlement of the anthracite
coal strike is compatible with any
theory of public behavior save the
tneory of doing exact justice to all
men without tear and without favorit
Denies Pledges of Any Kind.
"I would ask all honest and fair
minded men to remember that the
agents through whom I have worked
are Mr. Knox and Mr. Moody in the
department of justice, Mr. Cortelyou
in the department of commerce and
labor, and Mr. Garfield in the bureau
of corporations, and that no such act
of infamy as Mr. Parker charges could
have been done without all these men
being parties to it.
"The statements made by Mr.Parker
are unqualifiedly and atrociously false.
As Mr. Cortelyou has said to me more
than, once during this campaign, if
elected I shall go into the presidency
unhampered by any pledge, promise,
or understanding of any kind, sort or
description, save my promise, made
openly to the American people, that
so far as in my power lies I shall see
to it that every man has a square deal,
no less and no more.

be considered a most favorable oppor

those he treats, saying:

to afford to give my services free to

is my own, to do with as I please, and
I could charge every patient a thous

And I know of no law to compel me
to take money for restoring a man to
health. I do not care what the dis
ease is, I am just as ready to cure con
sumption, cancer, paralysis, Bright's
disease or any one of the so-called in

various doctors, who all failed to cure
her of the complication of diseases
from which she was suffering, includ

ulcers, chronic indigestion and extreme
