PRESIDENT SAYS QPOILS ARE
NOT USED IN TAFT'S BLHALF.
Roosevelt In Vigorous tetter to W. D.
Foulke Flatly Denies Filling Olficco
, With Henchmen Selections Have
No Bearing on Campaign.
Washington, Fob. 10. President
Jtooiovolt niatlo answer to tho recent
public statements that ho has mado
uuo of federal patronage to further
tho presidential interests or Secretary
Taft. Tho answer Is In form 01 u let
ter uddrossod to William Dudley
Foulko of Richmond, Ind., and In
:uilcy a letter from Mr. Foulko to the
president suggesting the need of such
u statement. Tho president begins
by characterizing tho charges as
"AiJko and malicious." Ho lollows
I Ills with an analysis of all appoint
ments sent by him to tho senate for
itB aetlou to show that in no case lias
the proximity of a presidential contest
influenced IiIb uctions.
Tho president says, in part:
"The statemont that I have used tho
offices In tho effort to nominate any
presidential candidate is both fnlse
and malicious. It is the usual imag
inative Invention which (lows irom u
desire to say something injurious. Re
member that thoso now muUing this
accusation wero busily engaged two
months ago hi asserting that I was
using tho offices to secure my own
reuomliiatlon. It Is tho kind of ac
cusation which for tho next fow
inontiis will bo rlfo. This particular
Blander will bo used until exploded,
and when exploded thoso who havo
used It will promptly Invent another.
Hits Bolting Delegations.
"At proscnt various cuorts are be
ing niado to get up holtlng delegations
from the southern states, and tho
meetings at which these socallcd dele
'gates aro chosen aro usually an
nounced aB "non-ofnceholdcrs" at con
ventions. As a rule this means, only so
far as It moans anything, that they aro
held under the lead of persons who
Avlsh to bo put in offico, but whoso
character and capacity aro such
that they havo not been regarded as
ill to be appointed under this admin
istration. In these cases be it remem
bered that tho failure to secure olllco
is not tho result of the political action
of tho mon in question, on tho con
trary tholr political action ia duo to
tholr failure to secure ofllco.
"You quoto a newspaper as saying:
'We aro now getting dally lessons in
civil servlco reform from tho White
House, which ought to attract national
attontlon. The appointment of Taft
workers to postofllces in Ohio and of
tdio totally unfit Gcorgo W. Wana
maker as appraiser of this port, is
now followed by the presidents re
fusal to reappoint a good Hughes man
as collector of customs at Plattsburg.
''This article is a good oxample of
tho accusations made by those of our
opponents whoso paitlsanshlp renders
them espccia.ly unscrupulous and un
truthful. Mr. Wamunakor's appoint
ment was recommended by tho three
ongressmon from New York county
and by the two senators, the appoint
meat being made preclsoly as the hun
dreds of similar appointments of post
masters, appraisers, internal revenue
urilectors and the llko, which are con
tinued by the senate, aro made. In
this particular case, as It ha: pons, Mr.
Wanamaker Is peculiarly fit lor tho
uHltlou, being already an assistant
appraiser, who has renderod good ser
vice ia that place, and his nppolnt
,inont Is tho promotion of a proper
" 'Tho refusal to appoint a good
Hughes man as collector of customs
at Plattsburg refers to tho caso of
Walter Wltherbee and' tho accusation
in this caso is particularly comic, bo
causo Mr. Wltherbee was an open and
avowed Taft man, tho classmate of
(Secretary Taft's brother at Yale, and
both Secretary Taft and his brother
requested his reappointment tho only
Now York ofllccholdor for whom they
made such a request. Tho congress
man from his district and tho senators
havo not agreed about his successor
and ho is still in olTlco. These facts
wero either known to tho editors of
tho paper in question or could havo
been fouud out by tho slightest In
quiry. Thoro remains the allegations
as to the appointment of 'Taft workers'
to postofllces in Ohio. Tho charges ro
lato to only three out of tho whole
number, eleven hundred and' sixty-four
postofllces; that of theso three, two
-were nominated in tho usual fashion
on tho recommendation of the outgo.
Ing congressman, nnd that tho third
nomination was made on tho report of
tho inspector and would havo boon
made without, tho slightest regard as
to whether thoro was a presidential
canvass on hand or not. Tho state
ments In the editorial In question aro
therefore untrue In every particular.
"Not an appointment has been mado

there had been no presldfntlal c"OFt

tho only coercion that I havn attempt

Makes Determined Effort to Drown
Self and Dies From Exposure.
Lincoln, Fob. 7. Dr. Carl Hullhorat,
n former minister of tho Pi oytenan
faith, who was expelled nom tno

V.iu itihano as a result of e. U.su ro and
Injuries sustained somo hours earlier
when ho attempted to drown himself
in a creek near tne asylum. Dr. Hull
liornt, who voluntarily entered tho asy

walks over the country surroiindlng
the institution. Accompanied by an
attendant and one or two other pa

walk took them alongside tho creek,
and Dr. Hullhorst, before he could bo

The water was only three feet deep
and those accompanying him dragged
him out, but ho broke away and again

hours alter. Ho was a practicing physi

Dr. Hullhorst was sixty-two years
old, and tor thirty years was a preach
