record of a suit brought by John P. Bailey,
Mr. Haskell's law partner In Ohio, against
the Illinois Steel company and the Federal
Steel company for services rendered by Mr.
Haskell as attorney and "organiser."
Mr. Hearst also quoted from what he de
clared was a recent speech of Mr. Haskell's
defending the Standard OH company as
having done wonders In the country."
"We know," said Mr. Hearst, "that It has
done wonders In the United States senate."
Mr. Hearst's Speech.
Mr. Hearst In his speech said in part:
I have read lettera to show the eorrun-
tlon In the republican party. I have read
letters anu cuuri recorus una suiiaavits to
show the equal, or even greater corruption
In the democratlo party.
The republicans have at least repudiated
their Foraker, but the democrats cling ten
aciously to their Baileys and their Hasj-
kells. Mr. iiryan sustains Mr. Haskell and
writea Mr. Roosevelt, proudly claiming to
be reaponsible for Mr. Kern. Mr. Kern
rushes to the defense of Mr, Haskell, al
though It would be highly appropriate for
somebody to rusn to tne acrenne or Mr.
Kern. Mr. mror said mat when he said
he had gotten $300,0t) he was only Joking.
Mr. Mack then, to be perfectly frank, ad
mits that he lied and we to be perfectly
frank, admit that we don't know whether
he was lying then or 1s lying now.
Mr. Bryan and Mr. Kern attaok tne re
publican party for not prosecuting the
Steel trust.
Perhana they hope that Mr. Koseveit win
whin the Steel trust out of the republi
can party and Into the democratlo party
as he did the Oil trust and that Mr. Mack
will get another xiwo.oou.
Haskell and Steel Trnat.
If Mr. Roosevelt should drive out the
Steel trust, the democratic party is quite
ready to receive It, for this same C. N.
Haskell, according to court records, la one
of the men who helped to organize the
teel trust.
In the court of common pleas of Putnam
county, Ohio, John P. Bailey, ex-law part
ner of Haskell, aued the Illinoie Steel com
pany, and the following paragraphs are
extracted from the complaint:

Mi-. Hearst here read he official attests
I'on to the foregoing.
S. It appears, not from my assertion,
from court records, that Mr. Hsskell Is
not only a Standard Oil tool and a cr.-voked
railroad promoter, but a Steel trust or
ganiser. No wonder he can get monev for Mr.
Mack and no wonder Mr. Bryan and Mr.
Kern do not want tn relinquish so valuable
a campaign treasurer.
Haskell In Oil Combine.
Before I read you a few more letters re
garding the Standard Oil I want to read
you Mr. Haskell's opinion of that corrupt
corporation expressed publicly In a apeech
at a banquet at Tulsa, Okl., on February
9, lsi:
"My Friends: We often hesr for want,
perhaps, of some clearer thought we often
hear a speaker sasall the Standsrd Oil
company. I sometimes think that the
speaker has merely heard the name men
tioned, and does not know what the purpose
of the company Is, or Ita plan of business.
The Standard Oil company has done won
ders In the United States. The Standard
Oil company by the application of good
sense to its business, by the application
of genius and discovery of the component
parts of the raw material, haa made oil
products reach value that were never
dreamed of a few years ago."
I think we all know more about the
fiurpose of tha Standard Oil company and
is plan of business than we did a few
years ago.
We all know that the Standard ha "done
wonders In the United States," or at
least In the United Watea senste. We all
know that the Standard Oil companv by
the "application of genius and discovery'
has developed some pretty "raw material"
In the organisation of the democratic party.
Mr. Hearst received a demonstration of
approval when he concluded and the con
vention then proceeded to rush through Its
