TJIE OREGON STATESMAN, SALEM, OREGON
Noted Men. Reached Recon
ciliation, After Stormy
WASHINGTON, V March 20.
The long $bB,urfl question of
whether the la-Prestdent Roose
velt and the late Senator Foraker
of Ohio erer composed htelr cele
brated quarrel eems to be defin
itely settled -in tha . afrlrmatlve
through private drenlatlon ot
print of correspondence between
them. , . .
The quarrel, which was a sen
satlonal one, broke In ,19.09 as a
direct outcome of -Senator Forak
er championship of the cause of
some of the Negro regular troops
who were ; summarily dismissed
ibm the army by Roosevelt after

of the rerular army. It assumed
the proportions of, a nationwide
controyersy when : President
Rooserelt dismissed a whole bat
talion. Senator Foraker, one of
the stalwart Republican leaders of
his day, and one of the circle of
confidants which surrounded
President McKinley, occupied a
position with President Rooserelt
until the two men differed over
the merits of the President's
wholesale dismissal of at least
some of the Negro troops.
Senator Foraker assailed Pres
ident Roosevelt's course openly in
the senate and the President had
struck back in characteristic fash
ion. The smouldering volcano
did not come into full eruption,
however, until an occasion in Jan
liarr. 1909. when both men were
l guests at a Gridiron Club dinner

Governor Walter M. Pierce found time from executive duties to pilot the Fordson "iron horse"
for a few turns around the state penitentiary farm, during the Fordson day tractor demonstration put
on by the Valley Motor company. Governor Pierce is seen here at the wheel of the modern farm im
plement. Sam A. Kozer, secretary of state, is seen standing second to the right of the governor, and
Manager Phillips of the Valley Motor company is back of Mr. Kozer, to the right.
The committee of Judges were Walter M. Pierce, governor, Sam A. Kozer, secretary of state; Oliver

The senator, apparently wiping
out old scores, wrote a friendly
reply, but declined the colonel's
invitation, because, he wrote: "I
have some fear that knowledge of
such a call, if it should get into
the newspapers, might be exploit
ed in such a way as to cause em
barrassment to both of us. Some

The printed record of their cor
respondence shows no more until
1916 when Senator Foraker sent
Colonel- Roosevelt his two vol
umes of meroirs and the Colonel
acknowledged them in a letter in
which he expressed what Senator
Froaker's' friends may regard as

lengthy letter which contained
other refreences. wrote:
"Not only do I admire your en

times more than I did many of
the men who voted for the bill)
but I also grew steadily more and
more to -realize your absolute
Americanism and your capacity
for generosity and disinterested
Then at its conclusion Colonel
Roosevelt penned the following
paragraph which will be of inter
est to both his friends and Sena
tor Foraker's and of special in
terest to the latter 's. He wrote:
"There is no use raking up the
past - now, but there were some
things told me against you, or in
reference to you, which (when I
consider what I know now about
my Informants) would have car
ried no weight with me at the
time had I been as well informed
as ' at present."
The letter was dater at Oyster
Ray, June 28, 1916. Friendly and
brief acknowledgement folloVed
from Senator Foraker. He wrote:
"Notwithstanding our differenc
es of opinions on some subjects,
there never has been a moment
since the beginning of our ac
quaintance when I was not an ar
det admirer of your great intel
lectual power, fervent patriotism
and fearless courage."
Thus apparently . an historic
friendship. Interrupted by an his

depiction of "The Vanishing Amer

is a masterpiece.

Harry Myers, screen comedian. -climbed
out of the chill Pacific

edy scenario the other day and
gave vent to this:
"When winter comes." I draw
nothing but South Sea Island pr

flirt with pneumonia and chil

ly in the hottest weather, I work
with fur coats and mittens on. I

that with the advent of winter,

by the time things are ready, sum
