TMK TAFT LETTKH
This lyings me to Mr. Taft's letter and
what the president has said In his com-
ment "n the same.
Now as to the lettar Itself.
It givon as the reason for Judge Taft's
hostile attitude that "he (I) haa opposed
the vital policies and principles of the
administration aid in his opposition has
yey.ed uim and magnified an important
but Incidental matter to embarrass the
administration using In this without
s. t iple a blind race prejudice to accom-
pli its imdii purpose.
I' really Is a question of political pfln-
'li respect to tills the legislature of
oh... expressed what I believe to xhe
senti-oent of the people f Ohio In a'
ii- .utlon asking tno senator to support
the ;tte bill.
Senator Koraker declined to follow this
"When the issue is whether the senator
i-li.i l hi- returned. It miist be determined
;t this is to be a repre-ientatlve form of
govi-rnment. not by the question wheth-
i he has followed his rotmetence but
bv tho queatlon which really represents
ti e prim Iples that his constituents desire
si. ported mid put into practice.'
I ills i.'iot;itbui shows that the grounds
of Mr. Taft's opposition to me are two-
tdd tie i ;.te bill nnd the Brownsville

bis letter enumerating the reasons why
be coi..d not aeeept an Indorsement for
the pre.1- ideiirv if coupled with an Indorse-
ment fi in. f.n- tM-nator:
' He ) ;.m opposed the vital policies and
priiK'iple ..f il e administration." and
odds hk nnMher retmon that I would not
vote foi ilie rate bill although requested
to do mo h the Ohio legffdature.
Mr. T: ft knew I iicvor opposed the pol-
icy of s ipei.islng and regulating Inter-
state roinmerce He knew that my oppo-
sition to th-- rate bill was not because I
as opposed to tb.- ginernl policy of regu-
lation nid supervisln- but only to cer-
tain clan-en. :iinong them the rate-making
clause tit d the oimuoditir s clause.

no one lias ever charged even my bitter-

has ever lost a day s wages by reason of
any act Or speech or vote of mine. But
what manner of man Is Judge Taft. any-
how? 1 have known hint lor a great
number of years and I thought inti-
mately and yet at times 1 fell as though
1 did not know him at all.
On July 20. 1907. when he wrote the let-
ter the president publishes he was so
devoted to the trust smashing policies of
the a.irnlnlf tration that he could not cotL-s.-nt
to be made president If. as a part
of the same movement. I was to be hon-
oic.l with a re-election to the senate be-
cause of my opposition to that spe lal
1 nt itc of ' mv pollciss" nnd now. since
the Standard Oil company matter there
is manifested Hie most unusual Indigna-
tion. Apparently every man who has had any
relation to the company is to be driven
nut of put lie life If so. 1 shall probably
have a great deal of company.
(inly one month ago. when Mr. Taft
visited Middle Hash Island and Toledo he
wis the guest of Mr. (.'. T. I.wls. of the
law firm of Doyle Lewis who have
1. -en the attorneys of the Standard OH
company for many years standing next In
rank ln that relation to Mr. Virgil V.
Iialln. and when Mr. Taft had occasion
t pass tHc;r and forth between Middle
ilass Island and Toledo where 1 had
the pleasure of meeting him. he traveled
in the yacht of Mr Richardson a promi-
nent magnate of the glass trust and while
he doubtless paid his fare at least the
papers s annjjnced. when traveling from
Hot Springs to Toledo on his way to
Middle liass Island yet nevertheless he
rode In the private car of one of the offi-
cers of the road of which also Messrs.
ltoyle & lwis are attorneys What
a series of unpardonable crimes!
There 1M not seem to he any such
righteous dislike of the Standard Oil and
otner trust representti tives rankling In
the hosotn of Mr. Taft on the occasions
to which I refer tin the contrary he
acted like a good square sensible honest
minded man w ho really enjoyed the com-
pany be was keeping and the entertain-
ment he was receiving and who recog-
nlnzed. as the late Senator llanna was
accustomed to say that there were "good
trusts as well as bad." and even decent
also good people. In the employ of the
Standard Oil company ns'well na bad.

I have no way of proving what was
in my mind except by referring to
the record. Any one who reads mat will
fall to find a sentence or wor. to Justify
any such statement as Mr. Taft makes.
In view of Judge Taft's -..tatement 1
trust I may be allowed to repeat what
I have said a number of times: that in
this whole' matter. I had no revenges to
seek or personnl end to serve but waa
anxious to see that common Justice was
done to the representatives ot a noble
and loyal race every one of whom Is
by nature a republican. The colored
voters are known to Ik. more br less dis-
pleased with the action of the republican
party In not passing them relief measures
for these soldiers and many of them have
signified a purpose tn vote against Judge
Taft because of his official relation t.
the matter. And now comes the presi-
dent and publishes Judge Taft's letter...
containing his unfortunate reference td
this unfortunate case. What does he
mean? Does any one Imagine that the
president Is unable to see that he Is
rubbing a sore when he should have
brought a plaster? Does he Imagine or
can nnybody suppose that the colored
voters of this country can Ik. brought
to the support of Judge Taft by parading
in these closing days of tho campaign
Judge Taft's belittling of their grievances
by mentioning It as an "incidental mat-
ter" which has been "selxed upon and
magnified using In this without scrupple
a blind race prejudice" and then adding
the charge that all this Is done by rep-
resentatives of "law defying corpora-
tions" only to "emlrarrass the adminis-
tration" or President Roosevelt? Can
It lie possible that the' president wants
to defeat Judge Taft? That can not be:
and yet he could hardly do any other
one thing better calculated to lose Mm
In other words the Brownsville pro-
ceeding was not only all Judge Taft
said It was but In addition to being de-
signed and selfish It was prompted by
"the representatives of law defying cof
poratlons to bring discredit upon the
administration of it policy with napped
