American Syndicate Ob tained RakeOff in Panama Canal Purchase Declares Money Wai Paid to French Which Distributed It to Hot Roosevelt denies In a most emphatic manner the charges made by several newspapers during the recent campaign that the United States government bought through the French government from an American syndicate the Pan ama canal concession for The charges were to tho effect that Charles brother of the presi and Douglas brotherinlaiw of President were members of this syndicate and re ceived a large share of the money paid for the Panama President In his state mentions the Indianapolis News and the New York Sun as having cir culated these The statement is In the form of a letter to William Dudley with the presi dents has made it Tihe president says In part White My Dear have re ceived youMetter of the 29th ultimo and have read It In connection with your previous letters inclosing quotations from the Indianapolis a paper edited by Uelavan As Smith certainly knew that all the state ments he made were both us to this Panama mutter and as to the other matters of which you inclose me clip pings and as the exposure of their falsity will not affect his future I am not very in wat save BOCTI because of their technical and ihelr usefulness In the work of the it has been found every human being who cared to took advisable to send to the at them ever since and are accessible AH of these documents that pos Any reputable man within or Beased any importance as Illustrating i without Republican or Dem tny feature of the transaction have alj has now and always has hadthe ready been made There re opportunity to examine any of these nialns a great mass of documents of j little or no Importance which the ad You quotethe News as stating that j ministration Is entirely wtlHng to have people have no omcial knowledge but which because of their I concerning the Panama canal The fact is that the people have had the most minute official knowledge i that every important step in the trans i action and every Important document have been made public In communlca lions to congress and through the dally i press and the whole matter has been threshed over In all Us details again and again and The News gives currency to thq charge that the United States bought from American citizens for property that cost these citizens only The statement Is The United States did not pay a cent of the to any American An Abominable The News say that there Is no doubt that the government paid for the property and continues who got the money We are not to The administration

phy8lcui condition may be such f ti 11M In I iti mi t Iftnt a f clear what good will losull from such make one feel a little impatient at having to answer The fact has been officially published again and again that the government paid and that It paid this 000 to the French getting the recipt of the liquidator ap pointed by the French government to receive the The United States government has not the slightest knowledge as to the particular Individ uals among whom the French govern ment distributed the This was the business of the French govern Tihe mere supposition that any American received from the French government a rake off1 Is too absurd to be It is an abominable and It is a slander not against the American government but the French The News saying that tho presidents brotherinlaw Is In volved In the but he has noth ing to Tihe presidents brotherin law was Involved in no Delavan Smith the other people who repeated this falsehood lied about the presidents but why the fact that Smith lied should be held to Involve Robinson In a scandal Is difficult to The scandal affects no one but Smith that humanitarian motives mightren der Immediate care at a hospital Im But should he
