man ot the congressional commlttc
investigating the absorption of tl

.mention that tills Is also true as re
gards Panama , the dealings of my

any other trust , nnd as to my other
action of my administration , nobody
need feel either concern or hope as
to whether anything done by my ad
ministration will bo "discovered" for
