Jury In Cases of Indirect Conteni ,
Kern Defends Haskell' ' *
Columbus , O. , Sept. 24. Twelve-
ipeochos to enormous crowds marked
the second entry of William J. Bryan ,
Democratic candidate for president ,
into Ohio during the present cam
paign. Ills concluding speech WM
mauo bore to an overflow crowd of
20,000 persons , whllo just previously
lie had addressed the largest audience
that had evar assembled in Memorial
hall. The seating capacity is 0,000
but this was increased by 2,000 others'
who wore satisfied to stand. Mr. Bry
an's appearance on the platform cre
ated a scene of the wildest enthusi
asm , which took some time to di out ,
but the demonstration was repeated
whan ho was formally introduced by
James Kilbourno , Uiu Democratic can
didate for governor ol Ohio several
in none of his remarks did' ' Mr. Bry
an touch on the bribery charge
against Governor Haskell.
During the day in this city the
Democratic candidate for president
spoke to 4,000 precinct committeemen -
men , the number being so largo that
the hall was emptied In order to ac
commodate those who had not heard
him talk on organization. Those meetings -
ings were followed by addresses to
the Commercial Travelers' league on
the trusts and the brotherhood of loco
motive engineers and firemen. His
remarks were on the issues of the
campaign generally , but his speech to
the representatives of the brother
hood was devoted exclusively to the
labor question and more particularly
the plank in the Democratic platform
demanding a trial by jury In cases of
indlicct contempt. In these remarks
he took occasion to refer to thu at
tempts made in 1S9G to pass a law
covering such cases and quoted a tele
gram , signed by the brotherhood
chiefs , in behalf of 800,000 railroad
employes asking that the proposed
law of 189G be passed. Mr. Bryan
used that as an argument against the
position of Mr. Taft that the plank of
the Democratic platform relating to
indirect contempt cases was an In-
Iduous attack on the judiciary.

1 tlon In Stopping Legil Proceedings
Against Prairie Company Proves
He Was Controlled by Standard Oil.
Wabhlngton , Sept. 21. President
looses olt , tollowlng upon u piulunged
cunurence with members ot the cab
inet at tlie White lloiibo , prepared untl
tave out his reply toV. . J. Uiyau , the
' .Democratic candidate , relative to W.
[ It. Hearsts charges that Governor
( iiuskoll , tieasurer of the Democratic
campaign committee , hud rcpicscnted
Htundard Oil interests both In Ohio
hiul Oklahoma. Mr. Bryan had do-
'mnnded ' proof of the charges , promts-
jing that in the event of their sub
stantiation Governor Haskell would bo
eliminated fiom the campaign. DIs-
> , -ulssing the Ohio case , which Involved
allegation of attempted bribery ,
Mth the explanation that he had made
iio direct charge against Governor
Haskell nu regards that particular in
stance , President Roosevelt takes up
the matter of the Prairie Oil ana Gas
company and argues that Governor
Haskell's action In stopping legal pio-
ceedings begun by the attorney gen
eral ot Oklahoma demonstrates con
clusively that he was contioiled by the
great corporation to which the Okla
homa company was subsidiary.
I After contrasting Mr. Bryan's de
fense of Governor Haskell as against
'Judge ' Tatt's repudiation of Senator
Foraker in connection with the
Hearst charges against the Ohio sen
ator , the president proceeds to de
clare that "Governor Hnskell's utter
unlitnosB for association with any man
anxious to appeal to the American
people on a moral issue has been
abundantly shown by acts of his as
BONornor of Oklahoma. "
i The president condemns Governor
Haskell's conduct in connection with
various mutters as disgraceful and
scandalous and calls special attention
to what ho describes as "prostituting
to base purposes the state university. "
This fresh charge against the govern
or rests on an article In The Outlook ,
Irom which the president quotes and
which , ho says , forms the conclusion
that Governor Haskell Is unworthy of
any position in public life.
The latter portion of Mr. Reese
velt's deliverance is devoted to criti
cism of Mr. Bryan's plan for regulat
ing the trusts , which he characterizes
as a measure that sounds more radical
than any advocated by the Republic'
ans , which in practice would not
work. Concluding , Mr. Roosevelt de
clares that no law-defying corporation
has anything to fear from Mr. Bryan ,
"save what it would suffer from the
general paralysis of business , " which
would follow Democratic success.

Guthrie , Okla. , Sept. 24. Governor
C. N. Haskell Issued a statement in
reply to President Roosevelt's letter to
William J. Bryan , dealing with four
specific charges against Mr. Haskell ,
namely , that ho Is subservient to
Standard Oil ; that he vetoed a child
labor bill ; that bo dealt extensively
in Creek Indian lands , and that he
had allowed politics 10 dominate him
in the removal of members of the fac
ulty of the State university and the
appointment of others to succeed
them. The Prairie Oil and Gas
charges the governor declared to be a
"joke of Roosevelt's stupidity , " assert

Pressure to Make Him Yet
Take the Stump ,
COMMITTEE CONSIDER IT ,
There is Said to Be a Strong Prob-1
ability That President Roosevelt
Will Take the Stump Yet For Taft.
Telegrams Pouring In on Him.
Chicago , 111. , Sept. 21. There IH a
strong possibility that President
Iloose\elt will make a trip through
the country speaking for Taft before
the campaign IH concluded. This In
telligence leaked out at Republican
national hoadqmuters today in ad
vance of the arrival of the candidate
In the city. National Chairman Hitch
cock , Senator Dlxou and other mem
bers of the national committee have
had the proposition under the most
serious consideration for the last three
days , and.lt is known that It was sub
mitted to Senator Crane while In Chi
cago. A definite decision in the matter
may not be made for a week or more.
While there has been more or less
discussion over since the campaign
upon the possibility of the president
taking the stump , the committee had
taken no cognizance of the matter.
It appears , however , that during the
last two weeks the national managers
have been deluged with requests ,
prayers and demands that the presi
dent get Into the speaking campaign
personally. The success the president
has had in gingering up the campaign
by his letters has led the committee
to give serious consideration to the
petitions to induce him to take the
"Give us Roosevelt , " write the west
ern corresK ] > ndents. "Let Roosevelt
talk ; he will stir things up. Roosevelt
velt on the stump would mean a land
slide for Taft , and that's what the
Democrats are fearing more than any
thing else. "
The president's original Intention
was to do no speaking during the cam
paign , but It Is opined that he would
yield to the overwhelming demand to
hear him. Now that ho has been
drawn into the aclual campaign
through his loiters , and now that the
contest has turned largely on the
question of the Uoosevol ftalkjlos-v. "
which candidate can the hotter carry
them out , it Is argued that the presi
dent would be justified In taking the
platform for Taft.
National Chairman Hitchcock ad
mitted that the plan was being con
sidered , but declined to discuss It fur
ther. It is likely that it will be dls-
r-ussed by the advisory committee In
Vow York where Mr. Hitchcock will
Says He Won't.
Washington , Sept. 21. A bundle of
telegrams and letters towered like a

when they reached the executive of
For two days past personal mess
ages to the president addressed to the
White House have been piling up ,
most of them being In the form of ap-
neals for him to get into the campaign
and personally visit different places.
The appeals come from all over the
country. There are also personal let
ters from the president's friends giv
ing him reports of the situation in
many states and cities.
The pressure for President Roosevelt
velt to take the stump will bo rather
hard to resist , but up to this moment
Mr. Roosevelt is firm In his decision
not to go out and make speeches
Many of his friends here insist that
ho must practically assume charge of
this campaign as he did four years
"One blast upon his bugle horn"
right now is worth Incalculable bene
fits to the cause. But the president
as near as can be ascertained will
content himself at least for a week
In personal touch with the situation
and posting himself thoroughly on
what Is going on. It Is expected that
there will be rapid developments
right along and that several political
hurricanes are duo within a few days.

DID NOT CRUSH COMPETITORS ,
Says Direct Selling to Consumer Has
Bred a Certain Antagonism Which
He Believes Could Not Have Been
New York , Sept. 24. John D. Rocke
feller appeal s lor the first time In the
iole of an author , In the suites ot at-
tlcles "On Some Random Rcmlnls-
cenres of Men and Events , " the Hist
of which will appear tomorrow in the
October Issue of The \\orld's Work.
Mr. Uockeluller speaks of the de\ul-
opmcnt of the Standard Oil company
and bays that the plan of selling dl-
met to the coiisumei and the excep
tionally rapid giowth ot the business
"bred a certain antagonism which I
suppose could not have been avoided. "
Of the direct belling to the coiibumcr ,
he says : "This was done in u lair
spirit and with due coiibldeiatlon tor
every one's rights. Wo did not ruth
lessly go after the trade of our compel-
Hoib and attempt to ruin it by cutting
prirei. or instituting a spy system. "
If any of the employes of thu com
pauy weie overzealous in going aftei
sales , he sajs thai they acted in viola
tion of the expressed wishes of thu
Further on he says : "Another thing
to be icmcmbered about the so-calleu
'octopus' Is that that there has been
no 'water' Introduced into the capital
'perhaps ' we felt that oil and water
-would not ha o. . jiuxiid ) nor in all
these years has anyone bad to wait
for money which the Standard owed.
It Is a common thing to hear people
say that this company has ciusbed
out Its competitors. Only the unin
formed can make such an assertion.
It has and always has had and always
will have hundreds of competitors. "
In dlacusbing "the modern corpora
tion , " Mr. Rockefeller says : "Beyond
question there is a suspicion of cor
porations. There may be reason for
such suspicion very often ; for a cor
poration may be moral or immoral ,
just as a man may be immoral or the
reverse , but it Is folly to condemn all
corporations because some are bad or
even to bo unduly suspicious of all be
cause some are bad. But the corpora
tion in character and form has come
to stay that is a thing that may be
depended upon. "
Mr. Rockefeller recalls what he said
at an official hearing that "if I wore
to suggest any legislation regarding
Industrial combination it would be ,
first , federal legislation , under which
corporations might be created and reg
ulated , If that be possible ; second , in
lieu thereof , state legislation as near
ly uniform as possible , encouraging
combinations ofx persons and capital
for the purpose of carrying on Indus
tries , but sufficient to prevent frauds
upon the public. "
