EXPLAINS THINGS
COMMENTS EDITORIALLY ON THE
THANKSGIVING "TURKEY
STORY" AND OTHER NEWS.
(By Publishers' Press.)
BOSTON, Dec. 1.?The Herald this
morning editorially says:
"It is always with keen regret that
the management of the Herald finds
that it lias been the means of circulating
statements which have no fouxidation
in truth or that are at all misleading.
But two or three things have <
happened lately which have caused us j
considerable annoyance. One-was the \
publication of an interview whose ac- i
curacy was questioned, but the truth t
of which we were in a position to stil'- t
stantiate if necessity required. ?
Another was the announcement that a
Mr. Wells was the choice of ..Mayor r
Collins for the first vacancy on the e
Board of Police. And the third was {
the 'turkey story' relative to the p
doings of the President's children. p
"The 'turkey story' was related by p
a Washington correspondent to one ?;
of our reporters, and was seat over v
in good faith. Candor compels us to s
say that it was not worth telegraph- q
ing. None of these publications, as s
far as our investigation goes, was w
prompted by malice, and we hope it p
is well understood that the Herald w
columns, editorial or news, are not tj
permitted to he the vehicle for the a]
mtpoiiring of any man's malicious tj
pen. -I
"The President errs in his state- =
ment that the reported Thanksgiving j
:urkey incident was the subject of I
editorial comment in the Herald. It
las not been commented upon or aluded
to in any way in our editorial .
:olutnns. The comment quoted by
he President appeared in a special A
iepartment of this paper that is not
iditoriai, but todj^idual^. _and. ^witicli ^
>ears the pseudonym ' of the writer
hereof. The President's error seems
o warrant the inference that even he
jets misinformed occasionally." te

UNCLE JOE CANNON RECENTLY
HAD A CONFERENCE WITH
CHIEF EXECUTIVE.
(By Publishers' Press.)
WASHINGTON. D. C.. Dec. 1.-Since
it became generally known that
:he President was in favor of a revision
of the tariff, the While House
ias been fairly besieged by represenailves
of the "stand patters:" Alliough
he has not quailed under their
ire, nor even taken to cover, there
ire indications that he is willing to
econsider his views relative to an
xtra session of Congress next spring,
f it can be shown clearly that the
nterests of the party demand a postionement
of what he sincerely beieves
to be inevitable. At present,
hey are bending every effort to pre
ent serious public discussion of the
ubject during the coming session,
'hey are anxious to take off the sugested
special message from the
hole house on the subject. The.
resident has so far acceded to their
ishes as to omit any discussion of

foqlrth of March Is a question. X,->
less than two weeks ago the President
declared to one of Ills callers
that he would call an eiitra; session
iiiitUe spring unless something then
unforeseen could cause him to change
his mind. lie is now feeling the
putee of the leaders, and it is believed
jthat: he has come to see that, an
extra session of Congress would
meet the favor of the majority of the
leailers. He has not said that he
would not approve, of such session,
buttas matters are now. shaping themselves,
an extra session seems more
reiiote than it did two weeks ago.
Should the President retire from his
position, it would be only for what
he jwould believe to be the good of
t hoi party. Personally he Is as ardeut
a revisionist, as those who have
beeili trying to influence , him are.
Speaker Cannon recently spent an
evening with the President going
over the subject. He advised against
an lextra session for tariff revision
pusposes. His argument 'is that in
the' recent campaign the slogan was
"stand,-pat," and that it was because
of this" that the people- rolled up such
a 'tremendous majority for Roosevelt
and Fairbanks.
"fljncle Joe" feels that there would
be little excuse for tariff revision at
this] time; in the face of their verdict.
Heslfeft the President unconvinced,
bud still open to argument.
