organization and related by marriage to

Henrv Vwtterson. today gave out
statement relative to ti e Harvey
"It so happens." says the statement
"that 1 am prepared to give to the peo-
ple of Tennessee what I believe to be a
substantially correct account of a meet-
ing which took place In New York cttv
some laree veeeks ago between Colonel
Harvev . the able and well known editor
of Harpers Weekly; Henry Watterson.
editor of the Courier Journal and Gov-
ernor V. llson."
Judge Kwlng savs that the publish-
ing houe of Harper & Brothers which
Issues Harpers Weekly was the pub-
lisher of Wilson's history of the United
States. Some years ago it was reported
that J P. Morgan furnished the house
with some financial aid. but not as was
general! understood with any political
purpose ln view. The statement con-
tinues: "Coloi.-d Harvey's Intimates knowing
Ms chat ioter. well knew that his edito-
rial utterances were wholly untram-
melled a id that whatever he wrote had
as Its h ydration his sincere conviction
of what was best for the cTJuntry. He
had beer years before brought into In-
timate i nriectlon. ln fact close friend-

fit to be nominated as the democratic
candidate for president. These editorials
continued 'o appear growing stronger and
stronger until the attention of readers
everywhere was drawn to them. Many
not knowing the real independence of
Colonel Harvey and seeking to harm the
Wilson cause began to indulge ln all
sorts of conjectures as to what could be
moving the weekly to so ardently cham-
pion Wilson's nomination while others
did not hesitate to put these conjectures
Into unfounded Intimation. As a result
a goodly number of Wilson's friends be-
gan to be of the opinion that perhap the
weekly's constant and earnest support

The statement says that Governor Wil-
son himself was decidedly of the con-
trary opinion appreciating that Colonel
Harvey had prominently brought him to
the front and appreciating Harvey's sup-
port and feeling it valuable. He felt
more bound however by the most sacred
ties of friendship and gratitude it Is
said which rather than break or fail
to observe he would doubtless withdraw.
At this juncture the meeting In New
Tork was held in the rooms of Colonel
Watterson As Governor Wilson arose
to leave the Uttle social gathering Colo-
