HASKELL BLISTES ROOSEVELT1
S..ys Halo of Integrity that Sur
rounded President Has Faded
Guthrie, Okla., September 30.
Governor Chas. N. Haskell, formerly
treasurer of the Democratic national
committee, tonight gave out a long
letter to President Roosevelt repeat
ing his published defence to the
charges made against him. The let
ter, in part, is as follows:
"The' serious character of your
charge against me should have sug
gested to you that you, as chief exe
cutive, should proceed with delibera
tion and certainly before making such
hearsay statements your own declara
"Your attack on me finally rested
on my conduct toward the Prairie
Oil and Gas company in this State.
I have said that you were responsible
for granting a franchise before state
hood, thereby creating vested rights.
You seek to evade the issue and
create wrong impressions. You said
the interior .department had no pow
er, except where crossing an Indian
reservation. You would have your
readers believe that the Indian Ter
ritory was then conducting its own
government and that only parts of
the same were Indian reservation.
"Mr. Roosevelt, you know it is not
true; you know all the land was In
dian land without county, township
or territorial government. What halo
of integrity surrounded you last week,
like the mist has faded away and the
interior department holds the record
which convicts you.
"You granted the franchise at the
solicitation of Senator Depew, and a
few days thereafter received $260,000
in cash for your campaign fund.
"You charged me with having at
tempted to bribe the attorney gener
al of Ohio. That was presumably
nine years ago. You have abandoned
that position. Charles P. Taft says
through his paper that no evidence
was ever produced that would convict
me of the charge.
"In touching on sthe State Univer
sity question, you- pretended to quote
from t.he Outlook magazine, but how
dishonestly you enlarged on the maga
zine article! Thai article charged me
with substituting Democratie for Re
publican professors for political pur
poses. I have showrn that stat-ement
to be false, but I eharge you with try
ing to enlarge on that mrigazine arti
cle and give the world the inpression
that we were improperly using the
money appropriated to conduct that
"Vour charge that I vetoed a child
labor law, you have not apologized.
for, notwithstanding you know that I
did it with the approval of union
labor and that our State constitution
which you said was.'so bad ybur opin
ion of it would not look well in print,'
eoiitains more detail and child labor
legislation than all you have recom
mended to the New York legislature
as governor, or to the congress of
he United States as president, and
at I had approved fourteen Acts of
ur legislature passed at the solicita
ion of union labor.
"-You said in your first statement
at I had suits brought against me
recover title to Creek Indian land.
I, overwhelmed you on that statement.
Adopting your usual poilcv, you flee
from that statement without .inst
apology and adopt the statement now
that it was government town site lots
that you charged me with being sued
for. Yes, I believe I- am a defendant
as to -certain government town site
lots in one of nearly of 11,000 suits
lthat you have had brought against
as many different honorable and
~high-'minded' eitizer1s of this State
uring this presidential campaign
r, and you will not undertake to
the politics for the purpose of
blicanizing about 20,000 Indian
trr.was your sole motiv e for hav -
g tho-e suits brought, and -I charge
u with knowing that there has been
delay in these cases, except that
asioned by the court 's delibera
as, taker: by himself as time he
d necessary to consider whether
ot there is any merit in the peti
filed by your attorney.
ou say that on that land ques
tion you will see that I get a hearin=
in court. Yes, sir, I will come to you:
hearing. Call to your assistance al
the power that your high office com
mands, present cases in any form yoi
like. I am ready to meet it and be
fore its conclusion the people o
America will be disgusted that the

Independence State Executive Com
mittee Meets at Greenville.
Greenville, September 30.-The
State executive committee of the In
dependence party met in this city to
day and elected officers, with D. F
McCuen, of Greenville, as chairman
and S. S. Price, of Columbia, as see
retary. A full electoral ticket will bi
put in the field for the Novembe:
election. The executive committe+
has under advisement the subject o
a State ticket with candidates fo
governor and all State offices.
Chairman McCuen Makes Statement
Greenville, September 30.-D. E
McCuen, State chairman of the Inde
pendence party, when seen tonigh
said: "It is difficult for the genera
public to realize the unrest preval
ent today among the voters of th
country. Almost every individua
you meet has some opinion on the is
sues of the day not entirely in ac
cord with the platform of either o:
the old parties, but he does not al
ways realize that his next" door neigh
bor holds a similar opinion. Th
average thinking man is disgustet
with the corruption and perfidit
proved to exist in both the Demo
eratic and Republican parties, an<
he wants a change.
"'the South is going to assent it
self. The unrest of which I spea]
is more manifest in the South toda:
than it ever has been in its history
The people of the South have stuc
to tl- Democratic party in years past
and some of them are doing so toda:
because heredity and tradition. The:
ive done so largely because they ha<
no direction in which to turn. The;
could not turn to the Republican par
ty for reasons of which we are al
aware, and doubtless would not be
cause of principle. The Independene
party offers a bulwark around whicl
such people can gather. It offers
platform that is strong and well de
fined. It offers to them a recor4
that zis clean and clear. We are going
to make this party a- power for good
in the State of South Carolina, and
we <will be heard from in this cam
paign and those to follow."'

TEDDY NOT TO ANSWER BRYAN e
Says Last Letter was a Personal At- z

Washington, September 30.-Presi- 1F
dent Roosevelt will not' reply to the e:
latest letter of W. J. Bryan, given s]
out by him last night at Rock Island, g
[11. Secretary Loeb stated today that t)
the president felt inasmuch as Mr. h
Bryan's letter was simply an attack
upon him personally there was no rea- n
son why he should answer it. L
Secretary Loeb today also made the S
statement that President Roosevelt
had no intention at present of mak- e
ing a speaking tour in behalf of the
Republican candidate for president.
Many invitations had been received
by the president, Mr. Loeb said, but t
N,r. Roosevelt never has stated that t<
he would take the stump. When ask. si
sd whether if the situation took ;such h
a turn that the president might con
sider that making a speaking tour
would materially aid the Republican
sause, the president in that event r
would take the stump, Mr. Loeb re
plied he might or might not do so,
and added that no one could tell wvhat
he future would bring forth.

be a preacher; if he takes dot
hiskey he's no good, and going to
