nhehj I went home before, I iissutn.ut I
nould find you here upon my return today.
I now learn that you will be detained In
the asc until Tuesday, and as I must bo
home 'Monday. I leave tomorrow.
"Blnca the president and his cabinet have
Jolntd forces with Mr. Hearst and three
Wall street brokers to make a- personal
fight against me, notwithstanding the presi
dent In his answer to Mr. Bryan, abandoned
his charge about Ohio Standard Oil cases,
yet by all the ,means at the command ot
the government and the millions of Hearst
and his Wall street allies, they persist In
vicious, unwarranted and untruthful attacks
on me. Personally I welcome their attack
and shall meet It with all the vigor at my
command. I shall treat them all as private
cltlsens and subject to the penalties of the
law which they merit.
"In this I know I shall have the aid of
my neighbors at home for all proper pur
poses; but my time must be free from other
demands here. Again my heart Is full of
-hope, for the election of Bryan and Kern.
Honest government and rule by the people
Is the atake. Important beyond tha polls
In the last generation Is the pending con
test. I would not for one moment consider
remaining In any way connected with the
committee, therefore, I hereby tender my
resignation as treasurer of the democratic
national committee, that not the slightest
contest ot my own could In any way be
used by the president to cloud the sky and
shield our opponents from discussing the
real Issues and laying bare the republican
duplicity to the people. Sincerely yours,
"C. N. HASKELL."
Haskell Answers Qaestloaa.
When Mr. Haskell arrived In Chicago at
O'clock tonight he declared ha had not
then resigned and that Mr. Bryan had
not asked him to resign. Speaking to a
crowd of reporters, he suld: "If you have
any questions to ak, put them on paper."
He then went from the station to the
democratic headquarters at the Auditorium
annex. When a list of questions was
handed lilm he retired to his room, saying
he would give out the answers later. In
his room he was closeted for a long tinie
with National committeeman Martin J.
Wade of Iowa and Josephus Daniels, chair
man of the democratic press committee.
It was midnight when Mr. Haskell re
appeared from the room. He had In his
hands a written resignation addressed to
National Chairman Norman E. Mack and
the answers Ho the questions which had
been given him.
"I have made my answers," he said
"They will explain themselves."
After - giving an affirmative reply to
the question whether ha had resigned, but
denying that Mr. Bryan had &!ked for the
resignation, the questions and answers he
read were as follows:
"Do you know whether Mr. Bryan knew
of the charges made against you by Mr.
Hearst before you were appointed treas
"I do not see how he could have."
Might Embarrass Bryan.
"Do you think your further connection
with the campaign, regardless of the truth
or falsity of the charges, would tend to
embarrass Mr. Bryan or Injure his
"It might. At any rate I would not be
a good cltlsen if I risked any embarrass
ment In the fight of the honest people
against the special Interests."
"Do you Intend to reply to President
"I have not done ao yet."
"Do you Intend to renew your demand
for an investigation of the charges."
"How can I? Roosevelt admits that ha
did not tell the truth."
More Dealala of Chargrea.
In regard to a series of questions aa to
his relations to the Citizens' alliance, said
to have been organised at Muskogee, Okl.,
to fight the local labor union, Mr. Haskell
denied that the alliance was ever organized.
In reply to questions concerning the Stand

The directors are now confident they will
have sufficient funds for the completion
of the building, . according to the original
plans and specifications. When the cam

completion of the building It was estimated
that enough money was raised for every
thing except the pillars.
The Cudahy Packing company has taken

The date of the Pure Food show this year
Is November 4, and It will be held at the

expects to Jiave the building completed by

the most successful show ever given in

Minneapolis Journal. '
William H. Tat, when the record Is matle
up, will probably stand out as one bf the
great men of American politics. One rea
son for this prophecy is that he does not
do all his gojd work on the top of a
Not a demonstrative fighter. Mr. Taft
is one of those who is always "there with
the punch" at the critical moment. About
the time of the national conventions, It
will be recalled, Mr. Bryan wired Mr
Taft In greal heat, calling upon lilm, as
the leading candidate of his party for the
nomination, to make an agreement for pub
licity in campaign contributions. There
upon Mr. Taft wired back to Mr. Bryan a
copy of a letter he had written Senator
Burrows In April, strongly Indorsing a
publicity bill. Mr. Bryan's evident hope
was that Mr. Taft was unprepared for his
appeal, and that he would be ablo to say.
"See the great reform republican! He har
done nothing or thought nothing about
publicity until I stirred him up."'
Now that the Foraker Imbroglio has come
to u head, which eliminates the Ohio sen
ator from consideration, the democrats have
been congratulating themselves because
they thought Mr. Taft was caught lit a
mess. But again the lcttea turns up. Mora
than a year ago, when there wa nothing
agahiBt Senator Foraker except his deser
tion of the administration upon certain
measures, and when Senator Foraker wan
still 'strong In Ohio, Mr. Taft refused to
consider a Joint indorsement of himself
for the presidency and Foraker for tha sen
atorshlp. He could not be joined with Sen
ator Foraker. It was a matter of principle
with hini, dealer - than the hope of the
presidency, to stand by the policies of the
ndmlnlxtration and to decline a compromise
with the enemies of those policies. "Tha
punch" is in that letter which now dears
Mr. Taft of any taint of Forakerlsm.
These Incidents show clearer than could
much eulogy Mr. Taft's fitness for the
presidency. The things he does are done
from conscientious motives and done
promptly, and are not to be undone for the
exigencies of a campaign. Tha American
people must warm toward a character like
that, especially when it is coupled with a
Tine and generous disposition which debar
him from a bullying attitude toward bia
subordinates or Inferiors.
