One of Theodore Roosevelt's meet
ings in New York nearly broke up in
a rough house when a man in the
audience insisted in asking questions
relating 'to Mr. Roosevelt's trust rec
ord. A New York World report of
the meeting follows:
Soon after opening his address at
Terrace Garden, Colonel Roosevelt
was brought face to face with a sit
uation that made him grit his teeth,
put on his fighting face and shake
his fists. Big beads of sweat fell
from his face. He had received a
friendly greeting from 3,000 persons
and had started his speech in good
form by reminding tho voters pres
ent that they were in the district
that first sent him into public life.
He had not gone far in his speech,
however, before hisses and shouts of
disapproval were heard from tho left
side of the hall. When the colonel
talking of honesty he shouted:
"Am I right? I will be elad to
have anyone answer me."
Prom the hostile ranks at tho left
a man sprang forward and cried:
"I challenge you, Mr. Roosevelt. I
challenge you on your own record!"
Instantly there was an uproar.
Prom the body of men at the left,
cheers and calls of "Let's hear tho
Mr. Roosevelt's friends In the
main portion of the hall howled,
leaped up, waved, flags and yelled,
"Put him out!" meaning, of course,
the one who had dared to interrupt.
For a minute it appeared the meet
ing might break up in a riot. Roose
velt himself brought about a semb
lance of order by seizing the speak
er's gavel and pounding on the desk,
waving his arms to his friends in
command to be silent.
"I want to hear that man," ho
cried in his falsette.
"I demand to bo heard as an
American citizen." retorted th man
Ion the floor. "I recite first to you
your nrst message to congress. Then
you went down to Pittsburg on July
4 of that year and before 25,000
American citizens you said special

late the so-called trusts and rail

cember of the same year in your mes
sage to congress, you said that the
men who constructed railroads aided
our commerce and manufacturers and
should not be tampered with. Now
you are here talking tonight about
honesty in public life. You, the same
There was an outburst of applause
from the left side of the hall and
renewed cries of "Put him out," from
the Roosevelt followers.
The colonel walked to the left side
of the platform. His face was almost
purple and he cried:
"Now .It down! I am glad to have
your question because It is an ex
ample of the absolutely conscience
less misrepresentation that is a part
of this campaign."
The man Jumped tn Mn foof nmn
but was pulled to his seat. Mr.
"I have said in the message he
speaks of and I have said many times
since that the honest man, the hon

is entitled to all proper profit from
the public service done. The trouble
with the people represented by the
man wno nas just made this inter
ruption is that they don't draw any
distinction between- rendering service
MR. ROOSEVELT IS SILENT
Like an avenging Nemesis on the
track of Theodore Roosevelt, the New
York World now proves by the books
of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., that when B.
H. Harriman, In 1904 collected at
Roosevelt's request $2tJ0,000 for the
republican campaign fund, Harriman
was buying Panama canal bonds, and
that ho made a profit of $86,000 off
the transaction. And Roosevelt is
silent. Silent as he has been to tho
ten questions propounded by tho
World several years ago and repeat
ed again and again in this campaign.
Silent as he is to the unanswerable
exposures of tho Roosevelt record by
Judge Parker in the southern tier.
