Says Halo of Integrity that Sur- Ik
rounded President Has Faded tl
Away. m
Guthrie, Okla., September .'10.? f<
Governor Clias. N. Haskell, formerly A
treasurer of the Democratic national e^
committee, tonight gave out a long U
letter to President Roosevelt repeating
his published defence to the ^
charges made against him. The letter,
in part, is as follows: Ii
"The serious character of your
charge against me should have suggested
to you that you, as chief executive,
should proceed with dclibera- S
tion and certainly before making such d<
hearsay statements your own declarations.
"Your attack on me finally rested ai
on my conduct toward the Prairie rt
Oil and Gas company in this State. P
1 have said that you were responsible
for granting a franchise before state- h
hood, thereby creating vested rights. iX
You seek to evade the issue and
<V"??'e wrong impressions. You said ?
tne ulterior department had no power,
except where crossing an Indian ^
reservation. You would have your P
renders believe that the Indian Tcr- Si
ritory wi\s tlu;n conducting its own P
government and that only parts of 01
the same were Indian reservation. '''
"Mr. Roosevelt, you know it is not .Vl
true; you know all the land was In- S1
I dian land without county, township c'
* or territorial government. What halo ^
i of! integrity surrounded you last week, w
| like the mist has faded away and the
| interior department holds tho record n
which convicts you. w
"You granted the franchise at the ^
solicitation of Senator Dopew, and a
few days thereafter received $200,000 1
in cash for your campaign fund.
"You charged me with having at- T*
I tempted to bribe the attorney gener- 1:|
al of Ohio. That was presumably L
nine years ago. You have abandoned
that position. Charles P. Taft says t(
through his paper Hi at no evidence j*!
was ever produced that would convict
me of the charge.
"In touching on the State University
question, you pretended to quote ^
from the Outlook magazine, but how '
dishonestly you enlarged on the maga- c
zine article! That article charged me .j
with substituting Democratic for Re- s
publican professors for political pur- ?
poses. 1 have shown that statement
' to he false, but I charge you with try- ij
ing to enlarge on that magazine article
and give the world the inpression
-that we were improperly using the w
, money" appropriated to conduct that p
inst i t ul ion.
< "Your charge that T vetoed a child p
labor law, yon have not apologized
for, notwithstanding you know that T ^
did it' with the approval o.. union
labor and that our State constitution
which you said was 'so bad your opin- ^
ion of it would not look well in print,'
contains more detail and child labor ''
lee slat ion limn all you have recom-| '
mended to the Now York legislature ^
^las governor, or to the congress of
|H'h<> United States as president, and 5,1
HBhat T had approved fourteen Acts of ^
Sy'?nr legislature passed at tho solicita- P
Sat ion of uyion labor.
aft "You snid in your first statement
PH^Iint I had suits brought \ ^.tinst me 1
IS/f) recover title to Creek Indian land. ^
J <> I, overwhelmed you on that statement. a
''Adopting your usual poilcv, you flee w
i from that statement without just
U apology and adopt the statement now
II that it was government town site lots
I 1 that you charged me .vitli being sued "
iV, for. Yes, I believe T am a defendant
as to certain government town site
lots in one of nearly of 11,000 suits
that you have had brought against ?

ing those suits brought, and T charge n
r you with knowing that Where lias been fi

"The South is going to assert it'll.
The unrest of which I speak
i more manifest in the South today
an it ever has been in its history,
'he people of the South have stuck

nd some of them are doing so today

ive done so largely because they had

auld not turn lo t'he Republican parfor

Says Last Letter was a Personal Attack?Will
Not Take Stump.
Washington, September .'10.?President
Roosevelt will not reply to the
latest letter of W. J. Bryan, given
out by him last night at Hock Island,
111. Secretary Loeb stated today that
the president felt inasmuch as Mr.
Bryan's letter was simply an attack
upon him personally there was no reason
why he should answer it.
Secretary Loeb today also made (lie
statement, that President Roosevelt
had no intention at present of making
a speaking tour in behalf of the
Republican candidate for president.
Many invitations had been received
by thi* president, Mr. Loeb said, but
Air. Roosevelt never has slated that
he would lake the stump. When asked
whether if the situation took snob
a turn that the president might consider
thai making a speaking lour
would materially aid the Republican
cause, the president in Hi at event
would take the stump, Mr. Loeb replied
he might or might not do so,
and added thai no one could tell will at
the future would bring forth.

One of our exchanges tells of an
old German who had a boy of whom
he was very proud, and decided to
find out the trend of his mind. Ho
adopted n novel method by which to
lest. him. He slipped into the boy's
room one morning and placed on his
labh a bottle of whisky, a Bible and
a silver dollar. "Now," said lie,
"when dot boy comes in if he takes'
'lot dollar he's going in be bco/.nis
man: il he lakes dot Bible he's going
to be a preacher; if he lakes dot
whiskey he's n<? good, and going to
be a drunkard." Then lie bid" behind
the door to see which his son
would choose. N:i came the boy
whistling. He ran up to }||f. table,
picked up the Bible and put it under
his arm, then snatched up the bottle,
look lwo or three drinks, picked up
the dollar and put it i? his pocket,
and went out smacking his lips. The
Dutchman poked his head out from
behind the door and exclaimed:
Mem Got, he is going to be a politician."
