The reply of Senator Boise Penrose. of Pennsylvania, to ibe chant*" made by Philadelphia and Plt'sbnrah organs of the Bull Moose party that he received $2.'..(mki from the Standard Oil Corporation during the 1904 cam p.lgn has struck terror In the fhtrd party. Mr Penrose a reply not only d mo’lshe* the charge that the I25.00o In question was "corruptlbn ' monev, of’.h' r*r yrlC* an,, ** Prtme beneflcl,rle. of the oil Trusts favor of 1904. the year when the transaction at Issue oc j curred, the men In whose interest he has been assailed. The Insinuation relative to the Industrial Commission is dismissed In a few words Mr Pen | rose showing that the proceedings of that body were not so conducted as to invite* the use of extraordinary pressure of Its members by the Oil Trust : or any other concern, and that he himself took ao little Interest In Its work as to forego the chairmanship, to which he had a clear title. The revelations made by Senator Penrose, which are supported by all necessary evidence, make It plain that. Instead of Senator Penrose being •ullty of the offending charge against him by the organa of the new party, the shoe is on the other foot, and that those who profited or sought to profit mo.r largely by Standard Oil favor In 1904 are the men now standing In th forefront of the movement that purposes to be for reform, progressivenes*. and all the virtues. The claim of Colonel Roosevelt that he knew nothing of wo'>rthU4,l^.^COn,w!,'1"0n °f *,r'-000 *° h“ «mpal*i. la too absurd to he worth discussing His war chest was not filled without his knowing to a dollar wher* the money came from. Bill Flynn, the ex-boss of Pittsburgh, made a feeble effort to answer Senator Penrose. His record in politics has been such that no person was surprised when Senator Penrose connected him with the "slush" fund and his attempt to steal the Senatorial toga Senator Penrose has made more -han a defense. He has shown In their true light the arch-champion, of vir drs8norroac”'tbePvotersd “ 8"m ,tT*n«* that ,h<* >«■« GAYNOR THE FAILURE. Next to lieutenant Recker. the most pitiable figure in the New York !tr*ft scandal is that of Mayor Gay n°h- When the Itosenthal murder was committed and the surface indi cations pointed so clearly to police connivance therein. Oaynor rushed into print, defended the police de partment, attacking the newspapers scolding District Attorney Whitman and Police Commissioner Waldo, and forbidding the New York Aldermen to institute any investigation. Day after day this tjuertilous "old grand mother" fill the air of New York with scoldings and ranMngs concerning the honor and integrity of every pub lic man who sought to implicate the Police Department in the Rosenthal murder, it is not too much to sav that Gaynor's attitude has been one of the principal stumbling blocks in the Investigation. He has shown a complete lack of knowlcdg- of the real condition of .,ff;,irs in New York City While crime lias been rampant he has refused to see It While mur tiers have been committed daily without arrests being made, he has praise.) the efficiency cf the Police Department. While gambling houses and houses of prostitution have hj^en conducting thi ir business openly, so that even the casual visitor to New York learned easily of their presence •nd activities, the Mayor of New York professes that the city wan cleaner than ever before Now, ihe house of card which th" Mayor has been so Industriously building about himself has fumbled down, and he stands exposed in hi* weakness and Ignorance Kv*n his subordinate. Police Commissioner Waldo, has refused to accept his sug gestion* any longer, and has an nounced that I e will proceed with the Cleaning up of the Police It. part inert. regardless of the Minor. The Board of Aldermen has started an in realisation of the Police |i«-pni tmen* on Its own accord Whitman has ftone aliout his own work and shown enough to convince the public of the complete rottenness of the police or - gan rat Ion.
