Washington, I never saw him but
three times In my life, and only twice
to have any conversation with him.
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
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
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

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
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,
