THE PRESIDENT ISSUES STATE MENT SHOWING ATTITUDE OF OHIO SENATOR. Shows That Mr. Taft Had No .Wish to be Aligned With Mr. Foraker and Vetoed Proposal for Joint In dorsement. Oyster Bay, Sept. 22.—Late yester day Secretary Loeb gave to repre sentatives of the press a formal statement by the president which STlT was called forth by the recent ex- changes between William R. Hearst and Senator Foraker of Ohio. Mr. Hearst in public utterances had accused the senator of relations with the Standard Oil company inconsist ent with his duties as a senator and his attitude as a representative of the Republican policies and professions. In to-day's statement President Roosevelt makes another appeal for the support of Mr. Taft and declares that his defeat would bring "lasting satisfaction to but one set of men, namely, to those men who, as shown in the correspondence published by Mr. Hearst, were behind Mr. Foraker, the opponent of Mr. Taft, within his, own party, and who now are behind Gov. Haskell and his associates, the opponents of Judge Taft in the oppo site party." Ihe statement embodies a letter written by Mr. Taft to a friend in Ohio on July 20, 1907, in which the present Republican candidate for the presidency refused to acquiesce in the plan of the Ohio state central committee to indorse Mr. Taft for the presidency and Mr. Foraker for re-election to ihe senate in a single resolution. The president points out that Mr. Taft'a attitude has always been di reotly opposed to that charged against Senator Foraker by Mr. Hearst regarding the moneyed inter ests. The president cites the Brownsville affair as a case where the agitation was a phase of the effort "by the re presentatives of certain law-defying corporations to bring discredit upon the administration." It was, iie says, in large part, "not a genuine agita tion on behalf of colored men at all." DROPPED DEAD Wisconsin Priest Succumbs to Fatal Malady During Mass.
