Meeting—Says That He Hakes
Charges Against Hearst "With
President Boosevelt's Authority."
kytica, N. Y., Nov. 2.—»A bitter de
nunciation of Wm. R. 'Hearst, which
the speaker said, has the full and
complete endorsement of President
Roosevelt was delivered in a public
address here last night by Secretary
of State Elihu Root. At the same
time, Root paid an eloquent tribute
to Charles E. Hughes and announced
that he was authorized to say that
the president greatly desires the elec
tion of Hughes as governor of New
"I say to you, with President
Roosevelt's authority," said Root,
"that be regards Hfearst as ^wholly
unfit to be governor, as an insufficient,
self-peeking demagogue, who is try
ing to drive the workingmen of New
York by false statements and false
promises and I say to you, with his
authority, that he considers that
Hearst's election would be an injury
and a discredit alike to honest labor
and to honest capital and a serious
injury to the work in which he is
engaged of enforcing just and equit
able laws against corporate wrong
doing. President Roosevelt and
Hearst stand as far apart as the poles
are asunder. Listen to what Presi
dent Roosevelt has said of Hearst and
his kind in the president's message
to congress. In speaking of the assas
sination of McKinley, he spoke of him
as 'inflamed by reckless utterances of
those who on stump and in the pub
lic press, appeal to dark and evil
spirits of malice.and greed, envy and
sullen hatred. The wind is sowed by
men'who preach such doctrines and
they cannot escape the responsibility
for the whirlwind they have reaped.
This applies alike to the deliberate
demagogue/ to the exploiter of sen
sationalism and to the crude and fool
ish visionary, who for whatever rea
son apologizes for crime or excites
aimless discontent.'
"I say, by.,the president's authority
that in opening these words with the
horror of President McKlnley's mur
der freeh before him, he had Hearst
specifically in his mind. And I say,
by his authority -that what lie.
thought of Hearst then, he thinks of
Hearst today."
men in the denunciation of real evils
and promises to cure them. It can
not be denied that many working
men in this state are about to
strengthen the enemies and weaken
the friends of popular government all
over the world by voting for Hearst,
who is just the kind or a demagogue
that I have described. ,He is indeed
especially a dangerous specimen of
his class, because he is generously
rich and owns newspapers of large
fcirculation and he can hire many able
and active men to speak well of him
and praise him in speech and in
private conversation. Not only is the
cause of popular government in dan
ger of suffering injury and discredit
from a vote for Hearst, l)ut the
genuine reform, the real practical
'redress of evils complained of by the
Ipeople, is in danger of being weak
ened and brought to naught by this
attempt of Hearst to get himself
'elected governor of New York.
Attacked Hearst's Private Life
"W'hat evidence has Hearst pro
duced of his fitness for this office?
Of his private life, I shall not speak
further than to say that from no
community in this state does there
come concerning him that testimony
of lifelong neighbors and acquaint
ence to his private virtues, excellence
of his morals and the correctness of
his conduct, whicJh we should like to
have concerning a man who is to be
made the governor of our state.
Only a Sensationalist
"He is really known to us solely
a young man, very rich by in
heritance, who has become owner of
a number of sensational yellow
journals. He has taken' in his news
papers-the (popular side upon- all
Sfte«*ion£. ...relating ta ilabon .and
corporations and has sustained it by
much violent denunciation and many
falsehoods and he has been a persis
tent seeker for office oh the strength
*f taking the popular side. He has
published whatever he thought would
please the working people for the
purpose of getting the labor vote."
In conclusion, he said: "The im

Paris, Fnauce, Nov. 2.—In spite of
the reiterated statements made Wed
nesday by Maltre Cruppi in the open

of the Countess de Castellane, for a
divorce from her -husband. Count

entire Conduct since the suit for di
vorce bigan would appear to be based
onthe belief that his wife, who, for

dignities, must yield in the end. This
Hearst's election would be to deprive
the president of the moral support of
the state of New York. It would be
to strengthen the president's enemies
and opponents and to weaken and
embarrass him in the pursuit of his
policy. It would inevitably lead to
a reaction against all true reform
and genuine redress of the griev
Mr. Root was warmly welcomed
here last night and when some one
inthe galleries called out:
.. "Who'll be the next president?"
there was a lesponse of "Root."
Interrupted in Speech
Twice during the delivery of the
speech the secretary was interrupted
by persons in the audience and the
great crowd In the theater was in an
unroar. One of these interruptions
came when Secretary Root declared
Hearst had been elected to congress
to serve the American .people, but had
failed to do so. "V*"*
He then read a statement which
he declared summarized Mr. Hearst's
record in the national house of repre
The second interruption came
when Mr. Root re^rred to the as
sassination of McKinley.
"McKinley's dead, why should you
bring him into this?" cried a man.
Again there was a tumult an dsev
eral policemen started to eject the
man. Secretary Root asked that he
be left alone, whereup the man
.voluntarily left the place.
Charles E. Hughes, republican
nominee for governor of -the state,
spoke at the meeting with Mr. Root.
At 7 o'clock the Majestic Theatre was
filled to the doors and many persons
had to be turneg away. Mr. Hughes

Sioux City, la., Nov. 2.—White
Bull, the Sioux chief, was in Sioux
City yesterday on his way to the
.ssme of the Ute uprising in Wyom
ing, to act as anemissary of peace.
He said he was anxious to meet lead-
fusal of the liberal offers of a life in
come, and it is now disclosed that the
count never ceased writing love Jet
ters to his wife in which he begged
for a reconcllliation, and in which he
anathematized the American lawyers
under whose Influence he charged she
was acting.
Friends^pf Count Boni say he was
dumbfounded to learn that the coun
tess had allowed the presentation
Wednesday of a detailed case. He
was so confident that his wife would
surrender that he did not prepare a
line of defense, and that it was only
yesterday that the documents which
under the French law" must be ex
changed, were transferred to the
counsel for the opposition. These
papers amount In the main to letters
written to Count iBoni .by his wife
and which show the contempt in
which she held her husband. These
Icttcra-'prOuBuiy --will necessitate the
production ofthe letters which pro
voked them. It seemed certain yes
terday that Counut Boni's defense to
the charge of infidelity will be "un
proven" and that he will.consequent
ly demand an inquiry and the produc
tion of 'Witnesses for the purpose of
prolonging the case, his idea being
to accomplish a reconciliation. This
would open a road to extricate the
count from the money difficulties
with which he is beset. The calling

Continuing, Croker said he hoped
that the working men'?,organizations
would work together and make up
their minds together before their
votes and not be misled by wild talk.
"If they stand
