Upon one nf these occasions he In formed me that In 1832. or there abouts, Thomas Lord, his ancestor ten generations removed, had settled In Connecticut. My ancestors came from the same state some nine or ten gen erations back. That Is as close as the relationship between Mr. Lord nnd mayself lies, and It Is as close ns the "Republican"' and Mr. Lllley get to the truth. Now, If as the "Republican" snys, the fiun's opinion of Lllley Is of ifo value because Its managing editor Is a brother of mine, then the converse of that proposition should also be true. Therefore, as Mr. Lord Is not a broth er of mine and Is no relation of mine, It argues that the Sun's opinion of Mr, Lllley Is of some value, However, be that as It may, here Is one of the lies, advanced In behalf of Mr. Lllley's cause, nailed. Npw regarding the Interview print ed In the Pun. I say now, as I said upon the witness stand, that every word and every syllable which I at tributed to Mr. Lllley he did say, and he said without qualification, or reser vation. Furthermore, I told the Rou- tell committee that I knew of two other reputable men, both members of congress, one a democrat and the other a republican, who had advised me that he made to them substantial ly the same statements thnt I quoted him as saying In my Interview. This, however, was not a question for the committee to consider, and they did not go Into It further. I want to say further that Mr. Lll ley himself did not at first deny the ntervlew. It was published In the Washington Herald as well as the Sun, and should not have escaped Mr. Lllley's attention. Although I was on the floor of the house with him he did not seek me and demnnd to know why I had written such a story, If It was not true; neither did he rfse In his place In the house, ns It was his right and privilege to do, and denounce the publication had It falsely attributed anything to him. He hss not done so yet. It was not until late In the aft ernoon when Mr. Sherman and Mr. Griggs, whom he had also accused, went to him and In vigorous terms de manded nn explanation, that he turn ed pale and tremblingly denied that he had said what was attributed to him. Furthermore, If my recollection serves me correctly, although he made sev eral general denials of various Inter views, Mr. Lllley never specifically denied und'V oath the accuracy of my Interview, I state now, as I stated upon the witness stand, that In making the de nial which he did to Mr. Sherman nnd Mr. Griggs, Mr. Lllley stated what ho knew to bo absolutely, unequivocally and deliberately false. The "Republican" says that I ad mitted taking money from the Elec tric Boat company. That Is another falsehood, as deliberate as any of the others, I did state then, snd I state now, that I had done some work for Mr. C. 8. McNelr, a Washington attor ney, one of whose clients happens to be the Klectrlc Roak company. Not nil of It was literary and not all of It had to do with any one client. The company did not know me and T did not know It. None of this work bad anything to do with, the Sun or any other paper which I represented. It was largely magazine feature stuff, as newspapers understand It, nnd had to do with the submarine boat as a type, rather than any particular design of boat for In the principal article which I wrote I called attention to the good points of the rival boats, and accom panied the story with pictures of both boats. None or this matter was ever printed In the Sun, or even of fered to the Sun. Mr. Lllley's Investi gation resolution nnd his Interview were matters of news strictly, and of course were printed. I trust yon will pardon mo for en tering Into this matter at so great length. I would not do so but for the fact that Mr. Lllley's record in con gress is an Issue In your gubernato rial campaign. My opinion of Mr. Lllley may be biased; It may or may not be of any consequence. I ask no man to accept It. All I would suggest Is that before the people of Connect! cut vote to make him their governor, that they should rend the estimate of hla honor, his Integrity, his candor and his manliness, formed by a committee of his peers, his fellow members of the house of representatives, ns ex pressed In the report of the Boutell committee adopted practically by a two-thirds vote, after the committee had spent many weeks thoroughly In vestigating his "case." I would ask them to read his own admissions, his retractions, contradictions and qulb bllngs, as well as his statements abso lutely proved to be false, and then read the testimony concerning the acknowledged forgeries and anony mous documents upon which his "case" was based. Let them read the 23 findings of the committee proved by representatives from the entire country and men of both parties. Let them consider his unwarranted attacks upon his fellow members, for they owe It to themselves to have a full understanding of his record, Then, If they can consistently vote to maVe him the executive of the state, to (111 the chair occupied so honorably by such a long line of distinguished governors, all I have to say is, God help Connecticut.

Tel. 3716. congressmen who had been conspicuous In continuing that favoritism had been elected to stay at home by their con stituents refusing them a renomlna tlon. He described the Interstate shipment and liquor tax receipt bill and said that by both the national government was assisting the Illegal seller In breaking state laws and that If the same attitude was assumed towards a foreign power It would cause war. At the afternoon meeting In West Haven Mr. O'Brien said thnt he would talk politics and he did? He said that the political parties had named their standard-bearers and adopted their platforms and were now seeking the votes of the cltlzenB on the principles set forth In the platforms. He did not have time to discuss them In detail, he said, but wished to point out a few Inconsistencies. There was Just one party In the field that meant what It declared for. That was the pro hibition party. The other parties built their platforms with the sole Idea In view of catching votes while the pro hibition party built Us platform upon principle. Continuing, he said: 'That great lover of the people, William J. Bryan. sounds ns a slogan of his campaign tins question 'Shall the people rule?' and by his own confession he has an swered It In the affirmative, but Mr. Bryan, while Intending to convey the Idea that he favors the people ruling says that he voted against prohibition because the law could not be enforc ed. "He did not favor the saloon be cause It was a good thing for the dear people thst he loves so much, but be cause It was more powerful than the people. In other words, the great commoner does not believe the people can rule the saloon. His leading op ponent, Mr. Taft, agrees with that same proposition so that both of the candidates of the old parties confess that all government must bow to the will of any vice or evil when it be comes powerful enough to defy law. "The prohibition pnrtj declares that right must prevail and that the people shall rule. All of the parties had a plank In favor of laws prohibiting child lnbor yet with the single excep tion of the prohibition party nil favor the continuance of the grentest pro ducers of child lnbor the saloon." In speaking of local political meth ods he said: Congressman I.llley was nominated not by the convention held recently but by a convention of Andy Gates, O. K. Fyler, J. Henry Roraback nnd Bob Katon. These men selected Mr. Lllley and these men are known ns the men who lobby at each session of the legislature for special Interests. Both the old parties are In the control of the special Interests this year." At Wnlllngford the service was field In the Baptist church, the Methodist, Congregational nnd Advent churches uniting and the pastors of each occu pied seats on the platform. The church wns crowded nnd Mr. O'Brien spoke for over one hour delivering on of his usual forceful arraign ments of the liquor dealers and their claims. His address was practically a repetition of the one he delivered a week ngo In Branford with a few va riations, and which was published In this paper last month, The prohibition campaign Is now on In earnest. To-day the candidate for governor speaks In Bridgeport twice, In Yalesvllle In the evening, in Bristol Tuesday, In New Haven at the Good Templars' convention Wednes day, In Danbury Wednesday night, In Branford Thursday and In Shelton Friday.
