T. R.'s Stand Admired.
On the other hand, the action of Mr
Roosevelt In accepting the admission
of Mr. Newett gracefully and disclaim
ing any desire for revenge or pecun
lary benefit has brought forth expres
sions of admiration. The action of Mr
Roosevelt In asking that only nominal
damages bo awarded was made at the
moment Mr. Newett admitted that he
did not believe that Mr. Roosevelt was
Intemperate and that he was not Jus
tified in printing what he did.
"The verdict was perfectly splendid,"
said Mr. Roosevelt. "I did not go lntc
this case for money, but for vindica
tion. I made my reputation the issue
because I wished once for all thor
oughly nnd comprehensively to deal
with these slanders. I have achieved
my purpose, and I am content."
The editor in vindicating Mr. Roose
velt said In part:
"I am unwilling to continue to assert
that Mr. Roosevelt actually and in fact

newspaper I have never knowingly
done Injustice to any man, and neither
I nor any of my attorneys is willing
now to make or continue the assertion
of an unjust charge against the plain

conclusion that to continue expressly
or impliedly to assert that Mr. Roose
velt drank to excess or actually became
Intoxicated as set forth in the article
would do him an injustice."
