CALLS STORY A ' FALSEHOOD

. - -
WASHINGTON, Feb. K-Prealdeot
Taft today denied emphatically that ta a
speech In New York oa Lincoln's birth
day ha said: "That the people , are not
fitted fur self-government." In tha first
official statement of this kind that ths
White House haa aver Issued during the
Taft administration the president calls the
circulation of this story a "falsehood."
The White House statement follows:
"Among the falsehoods that arc now
being assiduously, circulated by persons
and papers opposed to tha president Is
ooe that In his Lincoln's day speech the
president argued that the people are not
fitted for self-go vsrn men l.' President
Taft said nothing on that occasion which
possibly could be tortured Into any such
"Tha speech In which the president
made reference to popular government
wss delivered at tba banquet of tha State
Bar assodatioa In New York on tha night
of January 20. WBat he then said on this
subject and It was correctly quoted In the
newspapers tba following day, was this:
" 'Popular government we all believe In.
There are those cus who do not believe
all people are fitted for popular govern
ment Tba fact Is ws know thsy are not
Soma of us dare not say no, but I do;
and tha question whether a people la
fitted for popular self-government Is de
termined by the ability ef tha majority
of that people, to place on Itself tha re
straint by which the minority shall re
ceive Justice from the majority. It Is
the question of self-imposed restraint that
determines whether a people Is Bt to gov
era Itself "
May Be Aimed at Kssseislt,
Whlls It Is not admitted by any cm at
the White House, who haa authority ta
speak for tba president that his correc
tion of tha Icterpretatloa placed by
soma people upon hut New York speech
Included Mr. Roosevelt. poUUal leaders
bora believe such to bo tba oaaa.
Many of President Taft's friends have
asserted that Colonel Roosevelt had Mr.
Taft In 4nlnd when In hla Cotumr-.ie
speech ho said: T '
"Many eminent lawyers who more or
less frankly disbelieve In . our entire
American system of government for,
by and of the people, violently antagonise
this proposal. They believe and some
times assert that the American psiple
are not fitted tor popular government and
that It Is necessary to keep the Judiciary's
Independent of the majority or of all the
people; that there must be no apeal to
the people from tho decision of a court
in any case; and that therefore the Judges
arc to be established as sovaretga rulers
over tba people. I take absolute Issue
with all those who hold suoh a position."
In the same connection Mr.- Roosevelt
"If too American people are aot fit lor
popular government and if they should
of right bo tho servants and aot the mas
ters of the men whom Ibey themselves
put la office, then Lincoln's work was
wasted and the whole' system of govern
ment upon, which thbj great" democratic
republic rests Is a failure.. - -
