intensely, exciting and uncertain con
test been witnessed on Franklin. Field.
Pntll the final blast of the referee's
whistle announced the cessation of hos
tilities, there was a painful uncertainty
in the hearts of Pennsylvania's 'sup
porters. Cornell had thrice cairled the
ball dangerously near Pennsylvania's and once carried it over. Another
touchdown or an opportunity for a sec

ly mean defeat for the local eleven. Hut

frequency tha.t the spectators were kept
almost continuously bobbing up nnd

brilliantly. Pennsylvania's offense was
superior to that of Cornell, and her de

Recent investigations by the depart

that what Is known as foot and mouth
disease, exists to an alarming extent in
Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachu

Washington, Nov. 27. The president
has sent the following communication
lo a prominent citizen of Charleston,
S! C:
White House,
Washington, Nov. 2tf. 1902.
M Dear Sir: 1 am In receipt of your
letter of Nov. 10, and of one from Mr.
, under dato of Nov. 11, In refer
ence to tho appointment of Dr. Crum as
collector of tho port of Charleston.
In your letter you make certain specific
charges against Dr. Crum, tending to
show his unfitness In several respects for
tho ofllco sought. These charges are enti
tled lo tho utmost consideration from mo
and I shall go over them carefully before
taking any action. After making these
charges, you add, us a. further reason for
opposition to him that he is colored, and
after reciting the misdeeds that followed
carpet bag rulo and negro domination In
South Carolina, you say that "we havo
swoin never again to submit to the rule
of tho African, anil such an appointment
as Dr. Crum to any f-uch ofilco forces us
to protest unanimously against this In
sult to the white blood," and you add
that you understood me to say that I
would never force a negro on such a
community as yours. Mr. puts
the objection of color-first,- suylng "First."
he Is a colored man. and that of Itself
ought to bar him from tho offlce." In
view of thee last statements, I think I
ought to make clear to you why I am
concerned and pained by your making
them nnd whnt my attitude Is as regards
all such appointments. How any one
could have gained the Idea that t had
said I would not appoint reputable and
upright colored men to ofilce, when ob
jection was mado to them solely on ac
count of their color, T confess I nm wholly
unable to understand. At the tlmo of my
visit to Charleston last spring, I had
made, and slnco that tlmo I have made a
number of such appointments from sev
eral states In which thorr Is a consider
able colored population. For example, I
mado one such appointment In Mississippi,
and another In Alabama, shortly beforo
my visit to Charleston. T had at that
tlmo appointed two colored men as judlc- mnirlsfr.itpa tn the TITMtrlnt nf Pntnm-
bln. I have recently announced another j
such appointment for Now Orleans, nnd
have Just made one from Pennsylvania.
The great majority of my appointments
In every state have been of white men.
North and South alike It has been my
sedutous endeavor to appoint only men of
high character nnd good capacity, wheth
er white or black. But It has been my
consistent policy in avery stato whero
their numbers warranted It to recognize
colored men of good repute and standing
In making appointments to office. These
appointments of colored men have In no
state made more than a small proportion
of the total number of appointments. I
am uunblo to seo how I can legitimately
be asked to make an exception to South
Carolina. In South Carolina to the four
most Important positions In the stato I
have appointed three men and continued
in ofllco a fourth, nil of them whlto men
threo ot them originally fjobl Democrats
two of them, as T oni inrormed, tho sons
of Confederate soldiers. X have been In
formed by tho citizens of Charleston
whom T have met that these four men
represent a high grade of public service.
The Door of Hope,
T do not Intend to appoint anv unlit
man to olllce. So far as I legitimately
can, I shall always endeavor to pay re
gard to the wishes and feelings of tho
peoplo of ench locality, but I cannot con
sent to take tho position that tho door
of hope tho door of opportunity Is to bo
shut upon nnv man, no matter how wor
thy, purely upon the grounds of uico or
color. Such an attitude would, according
to my convict Ions, lie fundamentally
wrong, If, as you hold, tho great bulk of
the colored peoplo ar not yet fit In
point of character and lnlluence tn hold
such positions, it seems to mo that it Is
worth while putting a premium upon tho
effort among them to achieve tho charac
ter and standing which will lit thnm.
Tho question of "negro domination"
does not enter Into tho matter at all. It
might a well bo asserted that when T
was governor nf New York I sought to
bring about nero domination n (hat
stato because I appointed two colored
men of good character nnd standing to
responsible portions ono of I hem to n
position paving a salary twice as largo
us thut paid In tho olllco now under con
sideration one of them as a director nf
tho Buffalo Exposition, The question
raised by you and Mr, In the
statement to which T refer It simply
whether It Is to be declared that under
no circumstances shall any man of color,
no matter how upright and honest, no
mntter how good a citizen, no matter how
fair In his dealings with all his follows,
bo pcimltted to hold anv olllce under our
government. I certainly cannot assumo
uch an attitude, and you must permit mo
to say that In my vlow It Is tin attitudo
no man should assume, whether be looks
nt It from the standpoint nf Die truo In
terest of tho white man of the south or
of (ho colored man of the south not to
speak of any other ectlon of tho union.
It seems to mo that It Is a good thing
from every standpoint to let tho colored
uuin know that If he shows in maiked
degree the qualities of good citizenship
the qualities which In a whlto man wo
feel aro entitled to reward that ho will
not bo cut off flrom all hope of similar
reward. Wlthouunny rejsard as to what
my decision may bo on the merits of
this particular applicant for this particu
lar place. I fcoljthnt I ought to let you
know clearly r(y attltndo on the far
broader question) talsed by you and Mr,
'- : on nttltudc from which I havo
not varied during my term ot olllce..
Faithfully yours.

Notliinti Transpires Further Thar

the Question as to Whether or Not
Recognition of the Union Is Before
the Commissioners for Considera
tion Statement of Hon. Wayne
Thanksgiving tiny saw little activity
In mine strike matters. The only par
ties to the controversy who were ut all
active were the miners' representatives.
Late hi the afternoon Attorney Clar
ence S. Darrow, Henry D. Lloyd, Rev.
Peter Roberts, Ph.D.. and a number' of
the. United Mine Workers. Including
National President Mitchell and Dis
trict Presidents NIcliolls. Fahy and
Duffy, had a conference a I. the Jermyn
to piepare for the resumption of tho
hearings before the commission nest
Wednesday morning.
That the conference was more than
casual is attested by the fact that Dis
trict President Nicholls was imexncct
cdly summoned to it from Carhondnle,
where hu and his family bad gone to
spend the day with friends. The only
thing clven out regarding' the confer
ence wlis that it was for the prepar
ation of testimony.
The Next Witness.
Attorney Darrow could not say defi
nitely wliqthe next 'witness will be,
after tho crogEJ-examinatlon of Rev. t)r.l
Roberts Is completed. The likelihood Is,
however, that it will he District Presl-
dent Nicholls. This was the programme
before the ten-day recess was tuken.
The operators promise some interest
ing figures regarding wages. One com
pany. In anticipation of a controversy,
kept tnbs on Its contract miners for
five months, just preceding the strike,
to ascei tain how much time they actu
ally spent In the mines, and will show
to the commission that the average
hours of labor for n contract miner are
not quite six a day. This will be In
the nature of a surprise to tho miners
of the company in question, ns they
wero not nware that tabs were being
kept on them.
A lively discussion can be expected
almost any day after the hearings are
resumed. It will be precipitated by the
operators directly or indirectly asking
the commission to make an announce
ment that the question of recognition Is
In no wise befote the commission for
Miners' Contention.
Tlie miners' representatives will con
tend that the uuestion is heroic the
commission, because it was imu of the
four matters In dispute between the
companies and their employes and they
agreed to submit to the commission the
mutters In dispute between themselves
and their employes.
The operators confidently expect the
commission will unhesitatingly "do that
the question of ii-cii'-tnitlon of the union
was specifically exc-pted from tho mat
ters to be dealt Utli by the commis
sion, nnd that a t'.ir as the ommls
sion Is concerned It does not care tn
hear anything further on this particu
lar subject. Kven hough the commis
sion decides the qu rfiinii as not befoic
it for a decision, fie miners will con
tend that It Miould be discussed so thut

as to its merits, and thereby be In post
Hon to recommend or dls.inpiove It a;

Got on the Record.
At the very outlet of tho hearings
Attorney Wolveiti-ii, In an incidental
way, got It on tho iccnrd that tho oper
ators insist that the question nf recog
nition is not before the commission,
This having been dune, the operators
proceeded, as they view It, securely, tn
combat the contentions In favor of
iccognltlon ns advanced by President
The purpose of tho operators, sup
posedly, in doing this was to put their
side of the caso before tho public. It
was a matter of general comment that
nil the lengthy discussion on this sub
ject, ns far as the operators wero con
cerned, was addressed to the press bos
rather than the commission.
Ilnth sides are preparing for a lively
battle when this point Is raised, and, II
Is a pretty safe gyess, the commission,
era are also preparing to deal with It
