Resolution of Nebraska Platform.
Washington, Sept. 30.Uolore a
room full of people President Roose
velt told Senator Uurkett ho didn't
like that portion of the resolutions

leading lights of the Episcopal church, Hon of state laws. Permanent organ
who wore present for the purpose of izntion was also effected under the
meeting Mr. Roosevelt's guest, tho I
lord bishop of London.
The chief executive told Senator
Hurkott he liked ull of the resolutions
adopted by the Republicans of Ne
braska in their recent state conven
tion except the paragraph relating to
anti-injunction. This plank of tho plat
form tho president emphatically In
veighed against, on the giound that it
abridged the power of the courts, and
he would never bo a paity to the cur
tailment of their pre'ogatives under
the constitution. Mr. itooseiolt sug
gested that u resolution opposing tho
title of the immortal Lincoln or An
drew Jackson to their place In history
would be unite as reasonable as the
resolution adopted by the Nebraska
Republicans at their tecent conven
tion. The president made It clear
that ho proposed to stand by tho fed
eral courts and that when their pow
ers were limited it would mark the
beginning of the end of civil liberty.
Senator Uurkett, without debating
the question with tho president, re
tired Into the private office of the lat
ter, whero ho took up with Mr. Roose
velt several appointments now duo,
which he desired to have settled, If
possible, before tho president left on
his trip down the Mississippi.
Senator Uurkett said that tho presi
dent felt mighty good over Nebraska's
indorsement of Tuft. He said further
that the president was not a candidate
to succeed himself and that he would
dot be a candidate.
