Even John Philip Sousa, the ruat h.inrlmaster, who has no use for
Phonographs, has been forced to recognize the Phonograph as a for
midable competitor. The two-step king says that people will no
longer go to concerts if they can have music in their own homes so
easily and so cheaply as they can with the Phonograph. This is an
unwilling tribute, but it is nevertheless a tribute. The man who has
a Phonograph has a concert in his own house. Even a king could not
have more. At our store you can hear them any time.

fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder

It corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bod
effects following use of liquor, wine or

FOOSCVELT PUTS HARRIMAN IN
LIGHT OF LIAR.
DICTATES STATEMENT TO PRESS
Rr.ilway Magnate's Assertion That on.
Chief Executive's Urging He Raised
Fund to Save New York in 1904 Em
phatically Denied at White House.
Washington', April 3. President
Ilooscvclt emphatically denied tho
statements contained in a letter pur
porting to have been written by 13. II.
Harriman to Sidney Webster of New
York, In the latter part of December,
JlKKi. In Mr. Ilarrlmau's letter tho
ttatement is made that at the request
ot President Roosevelt he (Ilarrlinan)
assisted In raising a fund of $.250,01)1)
to bo used in carrying New York for
the Republican party at the election
of 1901. Tho statement the president
characterizes as a "deliberate and
willful untruth by right it should bo
characterized by an even shorter and
more ugly word. I never requested
Mr. Ilarriman to raise a dollar for tho
presidential campaign of I'J'M."
Tho president's denial was con
tained in u brief statement and cople?
of letters written to Representative
Sherman of New York. Tho letters
me dated Oct. 8 and Oct. 12, 1UUU.
The president, after furnishing tho
letters to the press, dictated tho fol
"After writing theso letters to Con
gressman Sherman the president was
nssuied that Mr. Hairiman had not
made the statements which Mr. Sher
man credited him with making. In
asmuch as tho same statements ap
pear, In the major part, In tho letter
of Mr. Harriman, now published, tho
president deems it proper that tho
letters he sent Congressman Sherman
last October shall now themselves bo
In the first letter referonco Is made
to ii conversation between Mr. Ilarri
man and Mr. Shorman, which was re
peated to tho president, In which Mr.
Ilarriman is bald to havo given as a
ivofaou lor his personal dislike of the
presh cut, partly tho hitter's determi
nation to have tho railroads super
ised and partly the alleged fact that
alter promising Mr. Ilarriman to ap
point Senator Depew ambassador to
France, he, the president, failed to
do it. It appears from the conversa
tion repeated to the president that
Mr. Sherman had gone to Mr. Ilarrl
inan to ask hint for a contribution for
Harriman Asked Favor.
The president says that Ilarriman
also urged him to promise to make
Mr. Depew ambassador because this
would help Governor Odell by pleasing
certain big financial Interests. The
president said he Informed Mr. Har
riman that he did l.ot bellevo it would
bo possible to appoint Mr. Depew and
furthermore expressed his surprise at
his (ilarrimnn) sulng that the men
representing tho financial Interests of
New York wished the appointment
made, Inasmuch as a number of them
had written, asking that tho place bo
given to Mr. Hyde. Mr. Harriman on
learning Mr. Hyde was a candidate,
hastily said that ho did not wish to
be understood as antagonizing him.
The president, it appears, was un
willing to appoint either Depew or
Hyde as ambassador, and f-'-o left un
changed his recommendations to con
gress concerning tho Interstate com
merce law, notwithstanding sugges
tions and criticisms by Mr. Harriman
of tho president's course In that re
gard, as expressed in certain letters
which Mr. Harriman wrote to the
"I feel particularly fortunate that I
have beon attacked within the last
lew days by both ox-Senator llurton
and Mr. Harriman," said tho president
in a conversation with representatives
of the press, following the givjng out
of tho letters to Representative Sher
man regarding statements nuido in
Mr. Ilarrlmau's letters to Mr. Webster.
HARRIMAN JTANDS PAT 5
Gives Out Statement in Reply to
New York, April 3. 13. II. Harriman
gave out tho following statement in
responso to tho statement made pub
lic by President Roosevelt at Washington:
"For many years I have maintained
an intimate confidential correspond
ence witli my friend. Mr. Sidney
Webster. What 1 wrote him and what
he wrote mo was, ol course, intended
for our eyes alone. In the course of
a letter which he wrote me in Decem
ber, lOO.i, he warned me against being
drawn Into politics, and questioned
wlietlii'i I had any political or party
instinct. This drew fioni me the re
ply to Mr. Webster's inquiry, which, in
a substantially correct form, has been
stolen and published. This letter wns
written on Jan. 2. Mint;, at a time
when viio one could doubt tho cordiality
of my relations with the president.
"About ten days ago I was told
that a discharged stenographer was
trying to sell to some newspaper tn
reproduction from his notes of one of
my prhatu letters. I could hardly be
lieve that any matter so obtained
would be accepted or published, yet 1
Hindu every effort to prevent it.
When I learned that a New York
newspaper had a transcript of these
notes, I notified the publisher at once
of the lints, and tuged upon his at
tention the gross outrage that tho
publication of It under such circum
stances would involve. Whilo deplor
ing, of course, that the sacredness ol
a privato correspondence should thus
bo violated, 1 cannot withdraw any
thing In tho letter.
"I have read tho president's state
ment. I am most anxious to treat him
and I1I3 other utterances with consid
eration due to tho high office which
ho holds. Nevertheless 1 feel bound
to call attention to certain things In
regard to which he does mo injustice
"The president dwells at length on
tho assertion that ho did not ask me
to contribute 'for the presidential cam
paign' nor for 'bib personal benefit.'
I don't deny this statement, nor Is it
nt all consistent with the assertions
I made in the Webster letter respect
ing tho Interview. Therein I distinct
ly said: 'The president sent me a re
quest to go to Washington to confer
upon the political conditions In New
York state. I compiled and ho told
mo ho understood the campaign could
not bo successfully carried on without
sufficient money and asked If I would
holp them in raising the necessary
funds, as tho national committee, un
der Chairman Cortelyou, had utterly
failed of obtaining them and there
