ROOSEVELT v W mm mtm m s OPRNLYflAIIRD PARTYWRECKER Ex Governor Odell Gives Out Sensational Statement. SPEAKERSHIP OF ASSEMBLY AT STAKE. Governor Higgins i3 Charged With Unprecedented Political Duplicity. New York, De- 21. Former Governor Odell, chairman of the Republican slate committee, made a .' ment tslay in whle h he charged President. Roosevelt . ami Governor Biggins with a deliberate attempt to wreck the Republican party of this state for their own personal ambitions. He dec tared that If disaster ensued they, not he. will be responsible. Mr. oSell s accusations wore a prt of his comment on the situation grow ing out of the contest In the Kep'ii.- Ilcan party in this state lor the eak- ershlp of the New York sta'e as-cfto- blv. Mr.-Odell dec lured hloifceir m favor of E. A. Merrill, Jr., several days ago. On Monday last Governor IliKKiUH came out In favor of J. W. Wads-woith. jr, Mr. Odell said today: BIGGINS WA3 FOR MERRITT. 'I notice that Governor HiKglu said he never was for Merrltt. Shortly after election I went to Governor Hlg-gins and asked him whom he wad for for speaker. He eliminated all but Merrltt, and said that neither New York nor Buffalo could have It bccausei It would stir up oppowi'i"" against the cities. I asked him If Merrltt would be satisfactory to blm, and he asked me to see Merritt. and ask hltn somo questions, 1 saw Merritt and repe tried i,. tha siicorncir and he said he !U satisfied. I clearly understood he was for Merrltt, and was never so surprises) as when he switched his trolley. This Is the worst case ef duplicity In politics 1 have ever known. Merritt Is absolutely right In saying that the governor agreed to support him. He offered to the governor to stay out of the content if the governor wanted him to do so, WARFARE UNNECESSARY. "Led hy the e:o!!arless and coatless young man who took us all to rlereat In Dt'Jl (apparently referring to J. Sloat Fasetti William Barnes, Jr., Colonel George W. Dunn and others with sore thumbs visited Washington and stirred up this trouble. If President Roosevelt had the g'Swl of the party at heart he could have sent for nie ae any tune ouu i wmnu u glad to confer wilh him for the sako of obtaining harmony In the party. If that, had been done all this trouble wejuld have been avoided without-, warfare. ROOSEVELT AND BIGGINS "I charge Mr. Roosevelt and Governor Higgins, with deliberately trying to wre k the party In this slate for their own personaHtmbltions. If Gils means parly disaster they, and not 1 and my frlenda, are responsible. They and not I are to blame. ' "Sei far as gratitude is concerned. Governor Hlnnins certainly owed mo something. Instead f putting out ton hands of friendship he choows l , throw stones at those who have b-ii' his friends. Biggins could have told me that be did not want me nor Merritt to be in this affair; but. Instead hn throws stemes. If the president wanted reform I was friendly and they could have had It. I charge him and Governor Biggins with injecting tlu-lr personality Into this matter. Their harmony conslsis of 'knocking.' They bad time to write letters In soppetrt of District Attorney Jerome In the lust election, but never said a word for Ivlns. There was no cause for friction, Mr. Ilalpln,' chairman f Hi" county Republican committee, was willing to go to Washington and si the president. They have done tic damage and will have ft take tit" c seqiie-nces. THREW OLCOTT DOWN. "The president sent, for Ob-oil (formerly candidate for chairman of Hit New York county Republican commit-tee, and then threw him down." Speaking of the candidacy of Congressman Herbert Parsons for pre! . dent of the New York county roinncl: . tee. Mr. Odell sall: "Parsons' Idea of party harmony i to throw bricks at anv friend. Thero was no talk of Odell or anti-Odcll in the codnty committee. The trouble all due to Mr. Fassett. He, c , oftener than tho tides. We are in for harmony If we hav to fight for it. f NOT WADSWO'tTH, UK SAY.l I "I make the prediction that Wad-..' worth will not be elwied a c speaker We will put blot out." j r )
