Lincoln, Sopt. 27. W. J. Bryan has
written another letter to President
Roosevelt, which was mado public
today. He says in part:
"To President Roosevelt: Permit
a parting word. You have the contest
of your life before you, and I desire
to render you all tho assistance in my
power. You have asked congress to
enact a law so enlarging tho powers
of tho interstate commerce commis
sion as to permit it to fix and enforce
a reasonable freight rate, and tho
railroad lobby was strong enough to
stop in tho senato tho bill passed by
the house. Tho railroad magnates ex
pect to block tho passage of the bill
again. Stand by your guns! You have
developed a reform element in tho
Republican party; you must lead it or
suffer tho humiliation of seeing tho
leadership pass to someone else. Go
forward, you owo it to yourself, you
owe it to your party, and, moro than
all, you owo it to your country."
