souri Congressman Makes Long
Letter Public on Return
New York, Oct. 24. Congressman
Richard Bartholin, of Missouri, who
(returned from Europe yesterday,
gave out a copy of a letter to Theo
dore Roosevelt under date of Sept.
12, "off Plymouth, England," an
swering Colonel Roosevelt's attack
on him as "one of the highwaymen"
of the Republican National Conven
tion at Chicago. The letter says:
In tho newspapers of September 5
the morning I sailed for Europe
you are reported as having used tho
following language In a speech de
livered at Des Moines, la., to wit:
"I see Mr. What's-his-name, that
Congressman from St. Louis, Bar
tholdt he is one of the highway
men has asked Mr. Cummlngs to
berate tho Texas, California, and
Washington contests at Chicago. I
hopo Mr. Cummings will refuse, for
the reason that I wouldn't debate
with a pickpocket the ownership of
a watch ho has just stolen. If the
police are handy, I'll hand them over
to them. If they are not I'll tend to
him myself. Any man, any candi
dato for governor or other office
who has knowledge of tho facts, and
supports Mr. Taft gives us the right
to say that lie is not competent to
pass upon honesty in public life."
I shall not attempt to answer you
In kind, as to do so would mean to
stoop to tho level of the cowboy in
speech and manners, with apologies
to the cowboy. Nor shall 1 discuss
with you tho merits of the Chicago
contests, for your repeated fulmlna
tlons on this subject show you to bo
either guilty of persistent prevarica
tion or else innocent of all knowl
edge of tho facts concerning it. In
assuming tho latter everybody will
admit that, In the face of tho print
ed evidence, I am taking a charitable
Saying that tho letter is not In
tended as an argument, and adding
that you (Colonel Roosevelt) would
not admit tho truth concerning tho
contests oven if you wero convinced
of it because it would knock tho
props from under your candidacy,"
Mr. Bartholdt gives his reasons for
opposing Mr. Roosevelt's candidacy
partly as follows:
First 1 chargo you with being,
consciously or unconsciously, the tool
of tho steel nnd harvestor trusts. If
President Taft had disregarded tho
law and tho Interests of the people
as you havo done, through your fail
ure to prosecute these trusts, ho
would havo had no opposition for
renominatlon. But tho moment ho
had authorized his attorney-general
to Institute proceedings, those pow
erful combinations looked around
for a candidate with whom to beat
Mr. Taft, and they settled on you
and furnished all tho money deemed
necessary to carry tho primaries.
Second I challenge your sincer
ity In tho championship of progres
sive measures and assert It to bo an
lnsano ambition nnd not an honest
deslro for progress and reform,
which prompted your candidacy.
Why did not you proposo all theso
now plans whllo you wero still
President and had tho powor to
carry them out? Instead you sneer
ed at Sonator La Follotto and his
Third I chargo you with a viola
tion of a solemn promlso given to tho
American peoplo when you declared
that under no circumstances would
you accept another nomination.
Your subsequent explanation that
had In mind only a "consecutive
term" Is a subtorfugo and an after
thought, and overy sano American
citizen Is convinced of thnt fact.
Fourth I am opposed to your
candidacy becnuso It Is for a third
Fifth I chargo you with a dollb
orato effort to overthrow tho Con
stitution and tho courts, for this and
nothing olso Is what tho proposed
recall of Judges and judicial decis
ions means. If tho Constitution
guarantees which vouchsafe our in
alienable rights and their enjoyment
by a minority are to bo overthrown
by t'ho passing whims of a majority,
why 1iave a constitution at all and
Sixth I chargo you with respon
sibility for tho defeat of tho arbi
tration treaties, tho greatest progres
sive measuro yet proposed by an
American President. Tho samo as
In tho caso of reciprocity, which
you both favored and opposed, you
advocated tho gospel of peace in
your Chrlstlnnla speech, but Immedi
ately began knocking It when Presi
dent Taft submitted a concrete plan
to carry It out. Tho deciding vote
by which tho treaties wero omnscu
lated was cast by your own political
manager, Senator Dixon, who had
favored them up to tho tlmo of a
visit with you at Now York on the
night preceding tho voto In the Sen
ate. Your opposition evidently was
prompted by envy and jealousy of
President Taft's possible success In
the matter of this great world re
form. Seventh I hold up to tho sober
judgment of tho American people
your denial of all knowlodgo of tho
$100,000 contributed to your cam
paign by tho Standard Oil Company
In 1904. As you knew of every
thing olso connected with that cam
paign, that donlal represents ono of
the most reninrkablo Issues of this
remarkable campaign. But why go
back as far as 1904, when the pres
ent campaign furnishes so Instruc
tive an object lesson? Georgo W.
Perkins, Frank Munsey, Mcdlll Mc
Cormlck, Dan Hanna and others,
have been publicly chargod with
having furnished your sinews of war
since you threw your hat Into the
ring, and you havo never denied it.
And are net these men tho represen
tatives of the steel and harvester
trusts, namely the trusts protected
by you and persecuted by President
Eighth I chargo you with having
attempted by your diatribes against
the national committee, to incite the
people to riot and bloodshed. Have
you forgotten what you said about
such a crime and a crime it is
in your first message to Congress af
ter the assassination of President
McKInloy? Have you forgotten that
you sent your, then Secretary of
State, to New York to chargo Mr.
Hearst with responsibility for that
great national calamity? But Mr
Hearst's editorials were mild as
compared with your furious out
bursts In which you characterized
honorable men as thieves and bri
gands. Ninth I chargo you with having
basely betrayed a friend In t'ho per
son of President Taft. Even to-day
neither he nor tho country can ac
count for your faithlessness except
on tho theory of your own Inordin
ate ambition or the legal procedure
against your pet trusts. And was
not President Taft, 'by virtue of par
ty tradition as well as his conscien
tious performance of duty and pro
gressive achievements justly entitled
to a second term?
Tenth I shall not only support
Mr. Taft, but oppose you with all
legitimate means at my command,
because of the contrast between you
and him. Mr. Taft is sane, safe and
Judicious, and under him the coun
try's progress and peace will bo se
cure. But what is the use of tolling
you? You know all this to be true
and have said the same things your
self, only in much stronger and more
glowing language. New York Tribune.

The force that has revolutionized farming, that
has made the waste places blossom as the rose, that has
given such astounding figures to vegetables, exclus

The telephone is the farmer's "stock ticker." It
