C., Jan, 30.—Declar ing that he wished to bring a "dis tasteful episode" to an end, Colonel Henry Watterson last night issued a statement saying that the issue be tween him and Governor Woodrow Wilson was solely as to which one had "lied." Colonel Watterson said he "had en gaged conclusively to show" that Gov Wilson had lied. He denied that Thomas F. Ryan had ever been approached for. campaign contributions for Governor Wilson, but stated tnat the matter had been talked over with Governor Wilson and the latter had "expressed the fear" that it the knowledge of a contribution from Mr. Ryan got abroad it might do more harm than good. Colonel Watterson's statement, ad dressed to the democrats of the United States, follows in part: The time limit Bet upon my stay in to party associates competent to judge. close, as far as I am concerned. "The claim that I must rush into print with this proof emanates either from the preverse or the malignant. I have it, am ready under proper su pervision, to produce it." Colonel Watterson then goes on to tell how he first met Wilson and how as a democratic presidential possibil ity, going Into minute details. He says that he was finally "dragooned" into the service of the New Jersey governor. "Dragooned" by Wilson. Colonel Watterson then tells of how his Influence was courted and of many letters that passed between them while he was in Europe and how Wil son met him on his return and was photographed with him at the dock. He continues: "I make this detailed statement be cause the public might well fancy from the governor's present attitude and tone that I had in some way thrust myself upon him, and that my friend ship and support had not been desired bv him. "The fortnight immediately preced ing the interview the Manhattan club, of which I hav«. been at pains to say as little as was needful to justice between man and man. and men and Got Money for Wilton. "I was met on my arrival in New York by a most urgent appeal for money from a gentleman of distinc tion. closely associated with, if not actually directing, the Wilson organ ization, and In answer to this I was able at once to secure a considerable sum of money. The meeting at the Manhattan club was designed still iurther to push forward and perfect the work of organization. "The Ryan story, which has made such an impression upon the unknown ing and unreflecting, was, as far as it related to* Colonel Harvey, a lie out of whole cloth. Though Gov. Wilson knows this, he has allowed it to cir culate without a word of contradic tion. Feared Ryan Publicity. "The attempt, which followed its exposure by me, to make it appear that I have intimated that application was made to Mr. Ryan, is cut off the same cloth, and is characteristic of the duplicity which attaches itself to the entire proceeding of the governor and his publicity agents. "The suggestion of Mr. Ryan was eagerly caught up by those agents. Fancy a political promoter refusing money from anywhere or anybody! But when I spoke to Governor* Wilson about it he said some uncivil things of Mr. Ryan, expressing a fear that if the knowledge of such a contribution got abroad it might do more harm than good—and the matter went no further I might have asked Governor Wilson how he 'could reconcile his objection to Ryan money, which had not yet been offered him, with his demand for Carnegie pension money, which had been denied him. But, although grow ing a little impatient under his sudden change of demeanor, I did not wish to be disagreeable. Certain it is that Mr. Ryan never heard of the matter. Neither I nor any one else spoke to him on the subject." The colonel berates Governor Wil son for disloyalty to Colonel Harvey: Saturday for Hedrtck where Mr. Mor rison will conduct a barber shop. A.

"The real point at the time of our interview was, as you amply put it one simply 'of fact and of business' and when you stated the fact to be that my support was hurting your candidacy and that you were experiencing diffi culty in finding a way to counteract Its harmful effect, the only thing pos sible for me to do, in simple fairness to you, no less than in consideration of my own self respect, was to relieve you of your embarrassment, so far as .it lay within my power to do so, by ceasing to advocate your nomination.

"Very truly yours, "George Harvey." Wilson Ashamed for Hurting Friend. Gov. Wilson replied under date of January 11 as follows: "My dear Col. Harvey: "Generous and cordial as was your letter written in reply to my note from the University club ,It has left me un easy, because, in its perfect frankness it shows that 'I did* hurt you by what I so tactlessly said at the Knicker bocker club. I am very much ashamed of myself, for there is nothing I am more ashamed of than hurting a true friend, however unintentional the hurt may have been. I wanted very much to see you In Washington, but was absolutely captured by callers every minute I was in my rooms, and when I was not there, was fulfilling public engagements. I saw you at the dinner, but could not get at you, and after the dinner was surrounded and prevented from getting at you.

J., Jan. 30.—"The latest statement of Col. Watterson admits of no comment from me," paid Gov. Wil son today when newspaper men asked him if he had any reply to make to the Kentucky editor's statement is sued last night. When asked for his reasons for mak ing no comment, the governor said: "I had hoped that they were self evident." The governor then added: "I am only sorry to hav# to regret the friendship, which while it lasted, I found interesting and enjoyable." Asked if he did not mean to say the loss of friendship, the governor replied that he "preferred to have the state ment stand as he had dictated it'. CITIES NAMED FOR CONVENTION BURLINGTON AND CEDAR RAPIDS SECURE DEMOCRATIC GATH ERINGS AFTER DEADLOCK., Des Moines, Jan. 30.—Many promi nent democrats from all parts of Iowa who came to Des Moines to attend the meeting of the state central com mittee, left for their homes today. Those who remained were expected to hold conferences at which plans for the convention were to be discussed. Forty-four ballots were necessary yesterday to give the convention to Burlington which was opposed by Council Bluffs and Cedar RapidB. The committee balloted four hours. Never in the history of Iowa politics has a state central committee remained deadlocked so long over the question of a convention city. M. F. Healy of Fort Dodge was named temporary chairman. The second convention to nominate candidates for state offices will be held at Cedar Rapids, July 25. This was decided on the first ballot. V. R. McGinnis of Leon, was chosen tem porary chairman. There will be 1.032 accredited dele gates at the Burlington convention. The apportionment is made on the basis of the vote for Claude R. Porter for governor in 1910, one delegate from each county for every 200 votes and a majority fraction and one dele gate at large. The democrats will have no presi dential primary this year. Each county will have free hand to go ahead with a primary for the selec tion of convention delegates so the of ficial convention call will set forth, but the call will not outline any plan to follow in the selection of delegates. Counties are, to choose between the old caucus plan and the primary idea. Because of the absence of laws in Iowa governing presidential primar ies, the committee decided a prefer ence vote such as could be secured might be a cumberson affair and that It would be difficult to get the neces sary number of counties to join in the innovation to get a representative expression. HAYESVILLE. Anton Fischer of Cedar Falls arrived Friday evening, called here by the ser ious illness: of his mother who is very low with pneumonia at the home of her daughter Mrs. J. W.
