Vardaman’s Side of the Case. • Editor the Clarion-Ledger: It seems to me you are unduly severe in your condemnation of the message sent by Governor Var damau to President Francis of the Exposition, relative to Theodore Roosevelt’s gracious appreciation of the Mississippi Exhibit and Buildiug. There was no discourtesy to Pres ident Francis. A calm perusal of the massag shows that; but when Governor Vaidaman thought of the desecratiug spectacle of The odore Roosevelt entering the re plica of the home of Jefferson Davis,that gentle old man whom he defamed, about whom he told de liberate untruths, in his published miiao j tu nmmi, mini lilt? |juui old Mississippiau, Ex-president of the Confederacy, after being called by this same Roosevelt “the arch traitui,” “chief repudiationist,” one of a ’’brutal race,” ventured to call Roosevelt's atteuliou,iu courte ous terms,to a glaring misstatement as iu his being a ’’repudiationist”* received a type-written eommuui cation, not eveu signed, not e\eti addressed as an oidinary letter, as follows: ’’Theodore R osevek de sires no communication with Jeff erson Davis”. Isay, when Gov ernor Vardamau recalled all of this, and thought of the blatant Roosevelt stamping through the room hallowed by the memories of the heart of the Confedeiaey, who, when feeble, weak, old aud broken iu heart and spirits, he had gratni. , tously insulted and wautonly de fault'd, it was natural and human as a Mississippiau. who resented the desecration, to have given ex presbiou io something not exactly complimentary to the Rough Rider. True, the Goveruor could have remained siieut, but after Rou-e velt bas invoked the South by say. ing that the *■ Southerners have a strong strain of brutality in their nature.” after dining with a nigger as a wanton defiance of our tradi tions : after forcing another Digger dowD the throat of the Charleston people as Collector and represen tative of the port: after punishing a whoie community m this Mute tor the lawless acts of a few tueu : after offering every malicious wrong ue could to our most illus trious citizen, the Presideu of the Confederacy, Roosevelt graciously Consents to approve utir exhibit made at the exposition, ami though our executive, are we to crawl to the feel of this erraut charlatan, and there lick the boot which has time and again spuiueu usT Not if the Southern nature is unchanged The Governor might have carrolled joyfully over this diotinguisbiug mark of im mortality conferred upon us, and those who ‘are ever ready to crook the pregnant hinges of the knee that thrift may fllow fawning” would have Cooed sweetly abuut his ’’broad ata'eiuausbip”, aud the "material prosperity” which Ted dy’a dentiferous smile would confer upou us A man who would d-fmne au old man like Jefferson Davis is uuwnrthy of respect; if he is shown his wrong and refuse to right it, he merits coutempt; if he piles ossa and peffun in the shape of futher wrongs, ho is infa mous. These things Th«od< re Roosevelt has done. He has repeat edly shown that he has uo further use for us tnau he hud fur J- ffei son Davis, aud uuder the circum stances, I do not believe it calls for a tmuiug of tho other check, nor for the “tossing of the ready cap iu air,” nor hanging,lovet-like, upon his gnu, and taking our tnoods therefrom, like Sweet Alice, who “wept with delight, when be gave her a smile, and trembled with fear at his frown”. Governor Vardainan simply showed the resentment of an out raged people, who asking nothing, expecting nothing, care nothing now, one way or the other, for Mr. R >osevelt’s opiuiou, aud want only to be let alone by him. Respectfully, GARRARD DARRIS.
