such about appointments, was admitted
today by Colonel Theodore Roosevelt in

his own solicitation.
Not only did the Colonel admit freely
that he consulted Piatt about appoint

him as the "boss."
"You asked for an appointment with
Senator Piatt?" Roosevelt was nsked at
ono point by Associate Counsel Barnum,
"I wanted to consult him," was the
"As the boss?" aBked Barnum.
"As the boss," replied Roosevelt. "As
the recognized head of the organization."
Throughout the morning's grilling the
Colonel was very pettish and answered
Roosevplt's first letter to Senator Piatt
was written from Oyster Bay October 21,
1S08. In It the Colonel said:
"I am not responsible for language
quoted. I have never used discrimination
against any man because of race, birth
place and religion. I have always treated
every man according to his merits."
The next was from Roosevelt to riatt
In December, 1S98, In which Roosevelt
auld he could not fill an engagement with
tho Senator Friday, but hoped to see him
ASKED FOR CONSULTATION.
Another letter from Roosevelt to Piatt,
