To Hln Kxeellency, Theodore Roose

Washington, 1, C:
Pear Sir: Now. Mr. President, the
public Is already familiar with the
rnorp f v t p n (1 o , reply which you saw
fit to mile under dafp of November
t?i. The statements of that letter
seem to me to demand some further
recognition. llnw me, therefore, to
rn.ll your attention tn th following In
iinsTf to your accusation of slander
end blgo'ry; also to your assertion.
Toft's religion Is purely id own priv
ate rnni'crn, a matter hetween him
nod Ids Maker, a matter for bis own
conscience, I.pt us see about this
Where I B-iv, "P I hetng circulated
end constantly urged as th reason for
rot voting for Tnft that. h Is an Infl
1pI;" and after the word In fl d oi you
choose fo supply the word I'pltarlan
In pnrenthes's. which makes It In ap
position with the word Infidel (mean
ing the .umc thtng.l Tt Is misleading
to the general public and misrepre
senting ivhat I actually wrnt.
About Taft's religion, you ny he
U n I'nttirlan. Quoting from a
pamphlet Issued by ,T. C Capehnrt of
Mnrg-anfown. W. Va., (I hnve murh
proof to support hi assertion). F.dw.
Kvprstt Hal says th Unitarian
church denies thp deity of Jesus
Christ; tho Cttltnrlnn church dtilns
Jmih Chris' was with God In th cre

born of thp Virgin Mary; denies hp

ard; denies ho was vpry (rod of very
Go.l manifest In flash; rlpnlpg he dirt
thp miracles recorded of him; denies
his blood atones for thp sins of the
world; rtpnlpa ho arose from th tomb;
dpnlea hp ascended Into heaven; de
rdPfl hp Is to bp worshiped as Ood
Jointly with thp Father; denies hp In
coming a.gnin to Judge the world; de
nies t'!in Bible Is the word of Ood.
Now, Mr. President, did not thp In
consistency of your characterization of
a. few year aito of Thos. Palno as a
filthy llttlp athPlst," who was then in
Mr. Tart now Is. a Unitarian, hnvi
.much to do -with your position on this

rr. Taft's right to hold the rpllKloits
bHf of Thos. Pfllnp la wnrMy of thp
jirp.sr.nt pxaltpd state of education and
rlvlllr.nf Ion,
Now. Mr. Presldpnt. beforp procepd
Inor furthpr In answer to your assor
tlons. T ikslrp to '.!! your aitontlon to
a few quotations:
"T believe In onp God and no more.
The world Is my country, find to do
pood Is my religion. The creation we
behold Is thp ever-pxlstlns; God. I
havp always strenuously supported
tho rlfrht of every man to his opinion,
howevpr dlfllrrnt that, opinion nilff'it
be to mine. Fe who denies to another
this rte'nt mnk-'s slave of himself

rludes himself Hip rlRht of chanslni;
It. Tiip most, formidable weapon
nMlnst errors of every kind Is rpason.
1 h.ive never us"d any othpr, and I
trust I never Miatl."
The above arp the utterance of
Thos. Paine, of whom In the "f,lfn of
Uoiiveneur Morris." written by ynnr
S'lf. on pa pro 2Ri), Is the statement that
Tho.i. Tain" nnva "filtlty llltle nthe
Ist." This was written In 1S96, and
In the last edition of the hook printed
In thp chat-Re still rcnifdrm the
samp, which rnrjfp is untrue as the
forosotnK ojiiotatlons clearly prove. Tt
proves further that his religion was
the very same as (tint which Mr. YV.
II. Tuft, the pi'fsldeni-elect, now en
tertains and which mi tiro so strenu
ously defending. To say that a candi
date for r"ie highest nfilce In thp gift
of the iciipli Is prlvllegorl to m.ike
his rellgloufi belief or- disbelief n mut
ter between himself imd his Maker, a
matter for his own conscience and
purely his own private concern, only
appeals to me of little force; It Is evi
dence of moral cowardice, and fol
lowed to Its logical conclusion would
justify every citizen In the land doing
tho same. Public confession of Christ,
would b uselo8p nd the doors of
every church might be closed.
Finally. Mr. President, for Informa

Commerce Commission Brands
Allowance for Cartage in
Sugar Case.
InvestlKntlon Begun on Own Initiation,
Contrnry (o T'swil Pro.
Washington, pec. ;e. In a decision
made public today the Interstate com
merce: commission declares that al
lowances for the transfer of sugar from
refineries to the train ara essentially
rebates and Invlolatlon of the law.
The Important determination was
reached by the commission only sev
pral months of consideration of the
matter of the allowances for the trntia
fer of sugar and, so far as the com
mission Is concerned brings to an tnd
a controversy which has long cN'.
between the reflti'Tles In New York
and those In Philadelphia. Tim Investi
gation of the subject was begun by Hie
commission on its own Initiative. No
complaint was filed, but what was re
garded n.s the injustice ami Illegality of
the allowances for transfer or cartage
was called to the attention of the com
mission with a view to eliminating
them. In Its decision the commission
lays down four general conclusions as
1 The commission has Jurisdiction to
make an order In "any Inquiry on Its
own motion In the same manner and
to the same effect as though com
plaint has been made."
2 It Is not a part of the carriers
duty to hear tho expense of transfer of
goods from the shipper to the carrier.
For curriers to undertake t'i compen
sate shippers for performing services
which the shippers are legally bound
to do for themselves Is for the carriers
to violate the act,
3 The publication of gross and ne'
rates would needlessly add to the com.
plexlty of tariffs. Wherever It Is pos
sible for carriers to file a net rate as
such, it Is there' duty so to do.
The allowances here considered are
rebates, and violate the law. No order
Is Issued, but the carriers are expect,
ed to conform to the law without d
lay." f

Head of Yale Law School Tells
Methodists Great Appropria
tions for Ships Should
Not Be Granted.
Had Ministers Talf n nn Antl-Wiir
Wand, Contest With Spain Would
Frnhnhly Neycr Have
Been Fought.
The first "peace day" was celebrated
yesterday In many churches of the
country, as the result of the recent
conference of tha different denomina
tion of churches hold In Philadelphia.
Penn Henry Wnde Roger of the Yale
school who was one of thn dele
gates to that, convention spoke In the
First Methodist diureli pulpit yester
day morning and delivered the aridieg
he made at Philadelphia on "Interna
tional I'facp."
In the course of his address he at
tacked the Increasing of armaments by
the different nations, and especially by
the I'niled States, and of the need of
compulsory arbitration of the differ
ences hrtween nations, a the courts
deeldo for Individuals when they dls
agree Nations, he said, should Ivi cop
sldeted as Individuals and there should
he an International court.
He spoke of The Hague conference
and of the progress made nt them for
universal peace. In the last ope. p
said, Ci"! many and Austria were the
only nations which opposed compulsory
arbitration In certain matters, and on
account of this opposition no iieilon
could le taken.
Rut while this progress toward peare
has Ixpii made, he said, the d'.Trr, nt
nation are nevertheless constantly In
creasing their armaments at a great
cost so that they will he ready for war
should It break out. There l.s no need
for this and It retards the prognss
toward peace.
The Pnlted States I especially- with
nut reason to Increase the slr.e of the
navy, both from the cost of the ship
and the the armament of the snips,
and for tho fact that no nation will
dare attack us. No nation has ever
declared war on the I'rlted States, nd
since the period prpend'ng the wr of
IT-' no nation has presumed to
trouble u.
The church In Kurope has aluay
found excuse for war and sometimes
has defended It. The chur h In he
I'nlted Mates tins aculcp,-cd la war.
Instead the church In this country
should have worked for peace. Public
sentiment rules the country and the
members of the national leglslatn-e are
always swayed by public opinion. From
the pulpits the preachers of the conn
try should have taught the doctrine of
peace and the settlement of Interna
tional differences )y arbitration.
There was no need for the Spanish
war. Had tho preachers exerted t'eer
Influence for peace the matter could
have been otherwise settled, Spain was
rendy to arbitrate all the matters In
question and the difficulties could have
hen, settled ulthout bloodshed Put
the preachers did not bestir themselves
and the useless war followed.
To show what, power the preachers
have let me clip an Instance. One hun
dred ministers In New York city of va
rious denominations, and a similar
number In Roston sent petitions to (he
congressional committee asking that,
the front appropriation for Increasing
Ihe armament be not granted, and thn
appropriallons asked for were not
granted, as those iho favored, them
The doctrine of universal peace
should he preached from the pulpits
throughout the land, the great navies
given up, and the other nations would
then have an example that I believe
they would follow,
