WASHINGTON', Nor. 27. The president
lias aem the following communication to
a citizen of Charleston. B. C.t
"My Iwar Sir: am In receipt of your
letter of November Id and of one from
Mr. , under (late of November 11, in
reference to the appointment of Dr. Crum
aa collector of the port of Charleaton.
In your letter you make certain specific
chargea againat Dr. Crum, lending to show
hi unfitness In apteral respects for the
office Bought. These chargea are entitled
to the utmost consideration from me and
I shall go over them carefully before taking
any action.
"After making these chargea you added
aa a further reaaon for oppoaitlun to him
that be la a colored man, and after re
citing the misdeeds that followed carpetbag
rule and negro domination In South Caro
lina, you aay 'that we swore never again
to submit to the rule of the African, and
uch an appointment aa that of Dr. Crum
to any such office forces us to protest
unanimously- agatnst this insult to the
whits blood,' and you add that you un
derstood me to aay that I would never
force a negro on such a community as
Objicts to Colored Mam.
"Mr. puts the objection of color
first, saying 'he Is a colored man, and
that of Itself ought to bar him from the
office.' In view of IheBe lust statements, 1
think I ought to make clear to you why
I am concerned and pained by your making
them and what my attitude la aa regards
all such appointment!. How anyone could
have gained the idea that I had said 1
would not appoint reputable and upright
colored men to office when objection was
olaly on account of their color, 1 confess
1 am wholly unable to understand. At
the time of my visit to Charleston last
aprlng I had made, and slnoe that time 1
have made a number of such appointmenta
from several states in which there Is a
considerable colored population. For ex
ample, I made one auch appointment In
Mississippi and another la Alabama shortly
before my visit to Charleston. I had At
that ileoe appelated two color meat aa
judicial magistrates In the District of Co
lumbia. 1 hav recently announced an
other such appointment for New Orleans
and have Just made one from Pennsyl
vania. Will Recoarntae Nrarroea.
"The great majority of my appointments
In every .state have been of white men.
North and south alike, it has been my
endeavor to appoint only men of high char
acter and good capacity, whether white
or black. But it haa been my consistent
policy, in every state when, their numbers
warranted It, to recognize colored men of
good repute and Btandlng in making ap
pointments to office. These appointments
of colored men have In no state made
more than a small proportion of the total
number of appointments.
"I am unable to see bow I can legiti
mately be asked to make an exception for
South Carolina. In Bouth Carolina, to the
. tour most important position in the atate
I have appointed three men and continued
In office a fourth, all of them white men-
three of them originally gold democrats
two of them, aa I am Informed, the sons
of confederate soldiers. I have been In
formed by the citixena of Charleaton whom
I have met that these four men represent
a high grade of public service.
"1 do not Intend to appoint any unfit
atan to office. Bo tar as I legitimately can
I shall always endeavor to pay regard to
the wishes and feelings of the people of
sach locality, but I cannot consent to take
'.he position that the door of hope, the
loor of opportunity, is to be shut on any
man. no matter bow worthy, purely on
the grounda of race or color. Such an
attitude would, according to my convic
tions be fundamentally wrong.
"It. as you bold, the great bulk of the
tolot-ed people are not fit In point of char
terer and influence to hold position it
leenia to me that It is worth while putting
premium on the effort among them to
tr.hieve the ciaracter and standing which
rill fit them.

LONDON. Nov. 27. Nearly BOO American
citizens and a sprinkling of distinguished
Englishmen participated in the annual
Thanksgiving dinner held at the Hotel Cecil
The company included Mr. and Mra.

staff, Robert MoCormtek, American am
H. H. Asquith, Lord Keay. Lord Fairfax.
Lprd Roberts and Sir Henry Norman. The
speeches were numerous and abounded in
good feeling and reciprocal compliments.
Toaata in honor of King Edward and
President Roosevelt were drunk with equal
Mr. Asqulth. proposing Mr. Choate's
health, jokingly alluded to the "dreaded
American invasion," and then referred to I
the long line of distinguished ministers I
and ambassadors that the United States
had sent to England, each of whom, he
said, had largely contributed to the pres
ent happy relation of the two nations, and
none more than Mr. Choate.
In responding Mr. Choate replied to Mr.
Asquith'B references to the "dreaded Amer
ican invasion and combines" and said:
There is one combination which meets
the approval of the peoples of both nations,
that unites the neople of bath countries.
America finds itself now the happy re
cipient of good will from all nations. Co-
lambia finds herself in the enviable but
embarrassing i.sition of hsvlng suitors
from all countries in the world. Columbia
does not mean to give herself away. She
means, like your (Treat yuoen Elizabeth,
to maintain her independence to the end;
at the same time it cannot but be conceded
that she betst understands the overtures
from her own race and kindred.
President Roosevelt, be said later, was
so strong, brave and true that he might
have been the leading spirit of the May
flower. It was his influence and example
that was responsible tor the Interest that
young Americans were showing in politics,
and the vigor, courage and human sym
pathy with which Mr. Roosevelt brought
tbe coal strike to a successful outcome was
the admiration of all countries.

CHICAGO, Nov. 27. Marine underwriters
are inclined today to give the Canadian
ateamer Bannockburn up tor lost on Lake
It was reported to tbem that the missing
steamer had been passed last Friday by
the steamer Algonquin, about fifty miles
southeast of Passage island and northeast
of Keweenanaw point. That would bring
Bannockburn well out into Lake Superior
and right in the track of vessels.
Since that time nothing has been heard
of the ateamer. It was supposed the
steamer had stranded on Caribou island.
Tbe government discontinued that import
ant light about a week ago for tbe season.
With tbe stormy weather prevailing it is
supposed that the crew could not have got
word to the shore.
The Montreal Transportation company,
owner of Bannockburn, sent out tugs
from Sault Ste Marie this morning to search
the north shore of Lake Superior in tbe
hope of getting some trace of it. Ban
nockburn carries a crew of twenty men and
abip and cargo are worth $200,000.

LINCOLN. Nov. 27. (Special Telegram.)
The foot ball season .of 1H02 at the Vnl
vcrsia,' of Nebraska was terminated today
in a blaze of glory. Before 6,000 people,
the greatest crowd that ever assembled
about a Nebraska gridiron, the unbeaten
Cornhuskers administered a decisive defeat
to the Northwestern university eleven,
scoring twelve points and emerging from
I the contest with their own goal line atlll
j uncrossed, a record not achieved by any
other college aggregation in the country,
j Nebraska, not having lost a game this
' Beason or even being scored against,
, on the record claims the championship
1 of the west. It defeated Minnesota, which
. In turn defeated Wisconsin and Chicago.

Michigan today also defeated Minnesota,
and while it was by a larger score than
Nebraska's victory. It was scored against
in this game, as well as several other dur
ing tbe season.
Nebraska's victory, however, was not
easily bought. Profiting by their superb
tight against Illinois laat week, tbe Method
ists entered into the play today with the
spirit of demons. Tbe transformation
wrought in Hnlllster'a men was surprising
to behold. They charged with spirited de.

Booth, the Nebraska coach, and his pupila
charge that Hall, tbe umpire, ex-captain
at Illinois university, was grossly unfair
in his rulings. Eleven times the Corn
huskers were penalised, seven of which
were for holding, the punishment each time
being the loss of tbe ball. Most of tbe
penalties came after Nebraska had carried
the ball far into their opponents' territory
and the surrender of tbe oval absolutely
precluded any possibility of piling up a
score on the Methodists. One of tbe penal
ties was particularly exasperating. Ne.
braska had smaKhed its wsy aixty yards
by Bteadv plunges, a single spurt by Half
back Bell, accounting tor a third of tbe
distance. Tbe ball was finally carried over
by Fullback Englehart. Umpire Hall, bow
ever, ruled that Guard Ringer was guilty
of holding. He refused to allow tbe touch
down and turned the ball over to North
western on its one-yard line. Balrd im
mediately punted ont of danger, tbe Ne-
j braeka warriora capturing the ball and
instituting another onslaught toward tha
Methodists' goal, but the final whistle
called them to a halt.
Nebraska la Paar Shape.
Nebraska went into tbe game in a rather
weakened condition. Captain Westover
limped from tbe effects ot an abscess which
had confined him to bis bed for the last
week. Quarterback Benedict waa crippled
by a badly wrenched knee, and to add to
his Injuries he received a blow In a scrim,
mage which deprived him of his senses.
He recovered, but played the last After
minutes almost in a trance, scarce! v know
ing the algnala. The absenoe of Ehadd at
left end weakened Nebraska's defense.
Follmer, who substituted lor the cripple
regular, was much too light and North
western directed its chief attack around
and against tbe left wing.
A summary of the gains scored by both
teams shows that Nebraska advanced the
boll 336 yards aa opposed to 124 tor North
western. Twice the Methodists held Ne
braska for downs and compelled a punt,
while the Cornhuskers' defense was of suffi
cient virility either to capture the ball on
downs or force Bslrd to punt on seven
different occasions.
Northwestern'! chief reliance on the at
tack waa a tandem formation, tha backs
plunging straight ahead into the line or
else swinging around the ends. Fullback
Fleager found himself baffled in most ot his
attacka on Nebraska'a center, tbe Corn
busker guards refusing to give way.
Around tbe ends tbe Methodiata had bet-
I ter success, although Cortelyou, at Ne
braska'a right extreme, threw most at tha
rushes that came his way. Around Folk
mer and his successor, Thorpe, Northwest
ern found little .trouble In gaining. Vun
ruyper, behind a solid wall of interterenoe,
once spurted twenty yarda and Rogers In
the second bait repeated the performance.
Nebraska's Attack Cloek-LIkc.
Nebraska'a attack la the main worked
with clocklike precision. Tackle masses,
with the halfbacks carrying the ball,
yielded aatisfactory gains, but tbe line
plunging of Mlckel and Englehart, both at
fullback, waa responsible for most of Ne
braska'a advances. Nebraska'a superiority
is the center position was one of the strik
ing features, the Cornhuskers' forwards
opening boles in the Northwestern liaa,
which netted five and ten-yard smashes on
almost every effort. Booth's proteges
varied their attack by using the ends to
carry the ball, Cortelyou onca breaking
loose for a fifteen-yard dash. A quick Hue
opening yielded twenty yards, with Bell
carrying the ball. Nebraska's longest single
gain. Fake plays were attempted at this
by both teams, but with poor auoceas.
Benedict, who does Nebraska's punting,
waa unsteady, from the effects of a
vrsAcuad knee, and ia tha cmbaaga of
