FOR TAFT Hearst and Roosevelt have joined hands to defeat Bryan, Both the President and the newspaper man are mak- Ins ;;;eir coalition very plain. Roosevelt accepts Hearst as an ally, and Hoarnt says in glaring headlines that his method of campaigning Is endorsed by Roosevelt. If there was ••VIM- any 'doubt as to the tftil obiectj of Hearst's party, It is now dissipated. And while Roosevelt and Hearst arc crying vociferously against Bryan, Wall street, including 2t5 Broadway, Is all for Taft. Ha money Is being spent for Taft. It is betting Us money on Taft and It is leaving nothing undone to elect Taft. Isn't the issue very plain? Governor Hnskell has demanded a 'hearing <i( the Hearst charge asalnst him and Hearst says ilu- demniul is humorous. Haskell says the charge is- false, I anil Roosevelt, despite his verbosity about the "square deal," condemns the man without a hearing. Bryan's letter to Roosevelt, published in part In the Californian yesterday, is here given In full. 'Hon. Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States: "Dear Sir—In a statement given out by you yesterday and published In this" morning's papers, you endorse a charge made against Governor Haskell of Oklahoma, to the effect that he was once in the employ of the Standard Oil Company and as such employe was connected with an attempt to bribe or influence Attorney General Monnett of Ohio to dismiss stilts pending against the Standard Oil Company. In endorsing this charge you attack the Democratic party and its candidate, saying that 'Governor Haskell ! stands high In the councils of Mr. Bryan and Is the treasurer of his national campaign committee.' "And you add that 'the publication of this corerspondence has not merely justified in striking fashion the action of the administration but also casts a curious side light upon the attacks made upon the administration, both In the Denver convention which nominated Mr. Bryan and in the course of Mr. Bryan's campaign. 'Your charge is so serious cannot allow it to go unnoticed, ernor Haskell has denied that lie was ever employed by the Standard Oil Company In any capacity, or was ever connected with It In any way, or the transaction upon which your charge is based. "Governor Haskell demanded an Investigation at the time the charge wa.s first made, offering to appear and testify and he demands an investigation now. I agree with you that if Govern- or Haskell Is guilty as charged, he is unfit to be connected with the Democratic national committee and I am sure that, you will agree with me that if he is innocent be deserves to be ox- from so damaging an accusa- JOLLY TIME AT LODGE MEETING h" selection of Governor Has- chairman of the committee un inn* at Denver and as treasurer IV mocratlc national committee approval and endorsement, I y iimy to demand an inime II •stigatlon of the charge against lursed by (lie President of 111 I'ni'eii suites.

"As tlie candidate of the Democratic puny 1 shall not permit any responsible member of the Republican organization to misrepresent the attitude of the Democratic party during the campaign. I have assisted you to the extent of my ability in remedial ineas- j HI-PS which I deemed for the public Rood which you have undertaken. 1 , have urged Democrutls to support j such measures and I have advocated i more radical measures against private monopolies than either you or your associates have been willing to undertake.

O:K- of the most jolly lodge meetings of the year was held by the Women of Woodcraft last evening. There were all manner of games and contests and then a big banquet with many good things to eat served as a fitting climax to the whole affair. The ladies who enjoyed vacations away from home during the summer months were the hostesses to the "stay at homes" and they certainly did their part well. The banquet table WU piled high with good things to eat] and it was well bordered with industrious banqueters who took care to see that none of the edibles went to waste. The program of games and contests was a long one and provoked much merriment. A novel "Jaw breaking" contest was won by Lam&nda Auatln, who disposed of her hard rock candy first. Tom Burke was the moat athletic of the gentlemen present, winning the potato race and the men's sack race. Uirnanda Auatln was a winner aagln, this time In the ladies' sack race, and Miss Pear! Ward also captured two prizes, the hop race and the honor of being the best looking of the "stay at homes." The meeting did not break up until a late hour. Eagles Tonight.
