"1 regard the situation as

A CAMPAIGN OF FRAUD
Roosevelt, Denouncing Trusts on
Stump, is Backed by Them—
Rants Against Bosses
But Is Their Friend.
Director William B. 'McKinley,
of the National Taft Bureau, to
"Theodore Roosevelt is lualiing
a campaign against alleged poli
"The logic of his argument
against them as such, iis that
they serve special interests and
do not perform the will of the
people in their aet.s.
"Mr. Roosevelt is today re
ceiving the open and avowed sup
port- of George W. Perkins, of tin
United States Steel Corporation
and the Harvester Trust, both' of
which were fostered and petti
by Mr. Roosevelt a.s.president.and
both of which are now haled be
fore the courts of the land by
order ol President Taft to show
cause why lliey should not. be dis
solved as violators of the Sher
man anti-trust law. Mr. Perkins
is named in the bill of the Har
vester Trust suit as being, in part
individually .responsible for 1 hat
great monopoly which has raised
the price of farm implements one
third to every farmer in the land.
"The point which 1 desire to
make clear to. -the people of the
country is- that Mr. Roosevelt, if
he is right about the 'bosses', is
himself dealing directly with the
bosses of the bosses, namely the
trusts and monoplies which have
this, country by the throat and
against which William 11. Tal't,
as president is striving t.o en
force the law.
As. president, Theodore Roose
velt did not prosecute the Steel
trust and he ordered a threatened
prosecution against the Harvest!

least, was at the personal solici
tation of George W. Perkins.
Flit hermore, he permitted the
Steel trusl to absorb its only
great rival, the Tennessee Coal
& Iron Company, in violation of
"If. as Mr. Roosevelt himself
says, a boss is a man who. ser
ves the special interests and gives
to tlieni special, privileges, then
Theodore Roosevelt is himself the
greatest boss this country ever
saw, fo,r no man has given great
er privileges to the trusts than he.
"Furthermore!. Theodore Roose
velt is- a. "middle boss" between
the special interests, seeking to
further his nomination by pour
ing thousands of dollars into his
campaign fund, and the poflitieal
bosses like William Ply mi of
Pennsylvania, anil Walter Brown
of Ohio, who are actively pro
moting his candidacy in the field.
"The bosses of the bosses, the
trusls, want the Harvester an'd
Steel trust suits withdrawn. They
want the anti-trust law ad,minis
tered by one man—Theodore
Roosevelt—with the power to de
cide het-weeji the 'good' ami 'bad'
trusts in order that they, thru
their support of hi.ni for a third
term as president, may lie re
warded in such special favors
and their enemies punislied. Such
a system of special, privelege by
executive dispensation of a ben
evolent despot was amply iIllus
trated in Mr. Roosevelt's hist

permit the Harvester trust to be
prosecuted and took no steps to
