It. happens that Con- Kres.'sman Scotf is in that and so Jenkins shios a few bricks at him. Some time ago the Miami county Piinday .school convention wrote to Mr. Scoii asking him where he sioml (he iiill to prohibit the sliipinent of liquor into prohibition states. Scotfs Reply to Convention. Tn his r<",>Iy Mr. .Seoll. said ho had always favored su*i lepi.^lation: thaf !:e made-a spcocli before the judiciary eommiite.' of the iioiisc urging ir to report favorably such a bill; iJiaL after an investigatioh he was convinc- ert that. Con?resoinan John .1. .TenKin ; of Wisconsin, chairman of the liouso judiciary committee, was more re.;- ponsible than anyone else for the fai'- iiie of the Mmmitiee to report the hill; that .lenkins having been de- fea.ied> recently for the renomination tl><' greatest obstacle had -<ieon removed and that the way wa.s practi- csllv clf»ar novv for the enaetmi^nt of til.- hill. In thi.s 1< ttor Mr. .Scoit told the a»i- Sfl.ite iriilb and everybody who I epi clos'"" tall on tlu' proeeeding.s ofl eongroP.«^ knows it. It .seems that Mr." .Soott'i? ohRervatlon.«! were convoyed { with .Mr. Jenkins over tiiy standini: as to conpre>-sman Jenkins in,a letter written by <leorsre \V. Hreen of Paol .T Says Scott Was Insincere. says scott was insincere. I . . . , . In reply Mr. Jenkin.-' said amon'r '-h-enoii renders that unnecessary. I. o:h<'r thing';: "Mr. Scott did appear onr'O before I'lo jiuliriaiy committee since he entered coiigifss nn<l siibmit- ted a few remarks. AVe could not tell from what ho said just exactly what his own view.s were. He said iliai K.insas was a piohiliition siate. and thai, i' was unable to suppress the liquor traCflc, and that, liquor was openly sold in many places. "He never made any attemiii to so- cnro any legislation ahiog that lines that 1 mention that 1 ever heard of. If .Mr. Seott enterfainr.l ihe views expressed in the Jotter he could have exercii^ed his right and moved that rf:e committee on judiciary be discharged from fiiiilier con.'^iileration of The hill. Tins he never did nor attempted to do. "I reeret that Mr. Sroii in'his zeal for re-election .should !vi"le-t upon the com mil lee the wny he has done. !l <are nothina about his reflections upon me—reflections devoid of either ii-iiih or hut I do regret xhai he shows an absolute imiorance of the r.r.rliam'ntary situation and reckle.'^rt- !y mis.state.s the facts." This letter was evidently written for publication and intended to do Mr. Pcoft harm in his candidacy. The r >eiiioc.'atic papers of the Second district are featuring it this week. Opposed to Legislation. It plainly shows that Mr. Jenkins is opposr-d to legislation that will prohibit the siiipment of liquor into prohibition states; it i\h<> plainly .shovvK ifiai Mr. Scott ai)p<ared bc-foie the committee and made an argument In fore ihe hill. Mr. Jeikins ni:'y not have iinder.siotHl what Mr. '.•?cotl wa:; driving at. biit tlie rest of the members nf the cuniniittee did. They were not so deiisf. .\nd the people Know bi'<>aiise Mr. Kcotf;; iirgiinnnt made a public document and scatler.Ml broadca.n at the time by t'lose who were pushing the legislation. It was a dear-cu' ar^ntiient uriing the eommlltei« to favorably report the bill. .Mr. Jen- Kins hopef, to confuse the people of Kansas by rai.-iug his iiarliamentary qu< .siion. He Kn<iws that no bill is ever taken away froia the committee in the house. The rommiiiee either repoits it or pigeon-.>:olcs it. A bill either lives or dies by grace of the committee. The l.itilefield bill has been pigeonholed by Mr. .Ienkin.<? and all effort.? to get ir. out have, .-so far, proved unavailing. Jenkins is Out of <t Now. It is a notorious fact known in Washington thati the house judiciary comminee is against the bill. Mr. .Tonkins is chairman of that committee. Mr. Jenkins came from |\\'1scoii- sin, wtero a'l the ".stuff that made -Milwaukee famous" Js made. But he won't be in the way much longer. Ills own Bepublicau constituents retirad him at the primary chiefly because of his aUltude on the Uttlefielij liquor bill. '•Uncle Joe"' •Uncle Joe" Cannon found Jenkins officers having gone to Bayard at the Lead of the judt=iary = commit- Republican meeting this tee wnen he oeeame speaker, and the' xi. i u« only thing mat kept him there since afternoon. # sas City Times this morning: To Ti:e Star- My attention ha .i been cnllod to the piihlioation of a letter from Congressman .Tenkins of \Vi.^- consin lo a citizen of I'.-uila.

The Iflfer does nor contradict ,Tny state meat made in my letter and I siiould not i;ave thought ii necessary to take any notice of it if it had been pub lished a month ago. when it was writ- ton, and when the peonto would have had time to re.nd it and an.ily/e its Etatement.'t Ihij the fact that, r.l- though it was dated September P.'), ii was not published until this week, on the very eve of t!.e election after all the weekly papers l.ave gone to pres.s and the fact that so far as I have oh served it is published under false headlines, calculated to mislead the careless reader, seems to justify ,'i brief reference lo it. Of course. I can have no eontrover.<,y TO GET THE VOTES A BIG FIfiHT l\ XEW YORK, I\. DIANA AM) ILmOIS. GEN. TAFT IS AT ROCHESTER fOXTIMIXJ TOIK OF ,\EW YORK .STATE TODAY. a men'her of Congress. The refusal of hi.i party to nominate him for re is hard al.«o, for me (o believe that on the temperance i.^sue, of a'l others, it Is necos.=;ary for me to institute comparison of lecnrd.s with my Democrat opponent. If it is iiecr.^.^ary. however. I cerfninly have no di.-i|)osition 10 evade it. And if the investigation shall eviend to an inquiry a.i TO iior- sonal habits as well a.> to public acts and utterances, T shall still have no comp'aint to make. At the hegihnin? of the campaign my opponent sent m.- word through s. mutual fii'end that lie hoped the contest would he one between gentlemen. I responded that I had no other wish or expectation and from that time to this 1 liave mad"? no reference to my opponent that, was not entirely courteous and respectful. Xeither have my friends nor the Re- Dubliran press of the district inade any personal atrack upon Iiim. although few men hnve ever offered themselves for imhliV; oflieo in Kansas who were more vulnerable to such attacks. How well my opponent has ob.=-ervrd ihe "gentleman'.^ agreenient" which he him.^elf propo.s- ed. I leave this publication, aoeotn- oanied as it i.^ by editorial attacks by his party organs makinr: charges wholly false and defnm.'itory.;,r Aitiuss —a wilne.-is all re more ein- 'diatic when it is noted that they ?onie on the very eve of the election. The campaign roorback, a fal.^e and libelous attac-k upon a candidate made III the 1,1-^l days of ;i Ion-: r'amiiaiaii. has iilways and mo:-t jit.itly been re- •^aiih'd as the most dl.srepiitable of campaign tricks, the last resort of a man o;- a party with no leplilmate claim upon the support of the people, untl for tlat reason forced to attempt by trickery to secure the votes which cannot he obtained on the ground of merit, rorttinately the good sense and the sentiment of fair play on .the oart of the people i.s so strong that the "roorback." justifying its name, nearly always reacts upon the heads of those who laiincLed it. That such will be the case in;tlie present in- stan:'e, my faith in the fairness and 'ntclligence of the people of the Second Kansas district will not permit nie to doubt. CHARI,ER F. SCOTT.
