WASHINGTON. Dec. 13.-Harry S. New
ot Indiana, chairman of the committee
on arrangements of the republican na
tlonal convention, today answered the
statement made by Chairman Lee of the
Indiana republican state central com
mittee. In which Mr. Lee declared that
President Taft could not carry Indiana
next year. Colonel New charges that Mr.
Iee Issued his statement as a part of
a prearranged plan and rays he knows
the influences that were bark of It.
If Ur. Taft cannot carry Indiana, no
other republican can," said Mr. New.
Mr. New said: "I had Information sev
eral days ago when Mr. I,ee was brought
to Washington by way of New York that
lie would lwsuo the statement that was
iven out yesterday. As early as last
Saturday I told the president that It was
forthcoming. I knew of the Influences
that are responsible for Mr. Lee's change
of sentiment. It Is part of a prearranged
plan and Is entitled to the usual discount
allowed In matters of this kind.
Taft Logical Candidate.
"I am still firm' in the conviction that
Mr. Taft is the logical candidate of the
republican party and I am just as firmly
of the opinion that the republicans of
Indiana believe in htin and are for him
without qualification and that the state
delegation to the national convention
will give him Its full support.
"If the republican party cannot win
with Mr. Taft, it certainly cannot win
with anyone else. I believe the electoral
vote of Indiana will be cast for Mr. Taft
.and that the attempt of the men who
have inspired Mr. Lee's statement will
fail- of their purposes."
Colonel Harry New today told Secre
tary Utiles at the White House that he
would call a preliminary meeting of Iijs
