wonder when this "attractive city was
reached this afternoon. The people of
Deming, boosters every one of them,
from the cradle to the grave though
few ever go to the grave in this healthy
region, they say were at the depot
when the train came in and a right
hearty welcome it was that they ex
tended. An enthusiastic meeting was held in
front of the chamber of commerce.
Eugene Harris presented "the key to
El Paso" to Willard Holt, who had
been delegated by mayor John Corbett
to receive it in behalf of deming.
Marvel at Denting.
Meantime, they marveled at the sta
ble character of the little city; at the
splendid business, buildings, the com
plete character of their stocks, and the
general air of prosperity and the en
thusiasm that moves the people. All
hammers in Deming are confined to
the hardware stores and It is said that
they make carpenters drive nails with
their fists; the knocker was buried
long ago; everybody Is a booster and
boosts. ,
Boosting, cooperative boosting, has
put Deming on the map as the livest
town for its size in the country, and
the same sort of boosting is keeping
it there. The El Pasoans thought they
were enthusiastic; that they were
boosters, but they have come to be
lieve in the last hour or so, after ar
riving here, that they are the merest
amateurs. It was a most pleasing visit
between the El Pasoans and the Dem
ing people and it was with regret that
the visitors piled back onto th special

according to schedule.

sent to Charles D. Allies, chairman of
the national Republican committee In
reply to the letter Mr. Hilles read to
the Clapp committee while testifying
last Thursda;.
Mr. Perkins calls attention to the
fact that the statements and charges
made In Mr. Hilles' letter were "made
deliberately, in writing and under
oath," but says the sworn statement
contains no proof with which to sup
port the charges.
"You state," Mr. Perkins continues,
"there was evidence on every hand of
the expenditure of large sums of
money in Mr. Roosevelt's behalf ex
penditures which 'undoubtedly
amounted to not less than $2,000,000.'
If there exists such evidence on every
hand, why did you not, produce it In
detail on the stand before the com
mittee? "If, as you assert. I am the har
vester trust, then the statement I
made in my letter of Sept. 23, namely,
that 'the harvester company has not,
directly or indirectly, itself or through
any individual employe, officer, direc
tor or friend, at any time contributed
one cent towards Mr. Roosevelt's cam
paign, either before the Chicago con
vention of June or since that time,'
should be accepted by you as a defin
ite statement on behalf of the com
pany that it has made no such contri
bution as you claim.
"If, however, you refuse to accept
my statement and have such over
whelming evidence as you claim to
have, to the effect that the harvester
company has contributed, knowing as
you do that such contribution -would
be illegal, you surely could easily
have had president Taft order an in
vestigation of the books of the har
vester company by proper government
officials, in order to ascertain just
what contributions have been made
and publish to the world the facts that
such investigation revealed."
