ROOSEVEL T ON WEAK PPbSIDENJ S NEW Oct. an article in the Outlook former President Roosevelt briskly defends his action' in acquiring the right to construct the Panama canal by the United States. He intimates that a timid president in such an emergency would not do justice to the people of the nation and replies to those who charged him with usurping and acting in an unconstitutional manner. The aiticle course there was at the and has been much of statements that I acted in an 'tin- constitutional' I 'usurp-1 ed authority' which was not mine. The simple'fact was that when the in-' of the people imper- atively demanded that a certain' act' should be and I had the power to do it. I did it unless it was specific- ally prohibited by instead of tim- idly to do it unless I find provision of which ren-1 dered it imperative that I should it. In other I gave the bene- fit of the doubt to the people of the I'nited and not any group of foreign or whose interests happened to be adverse to those of the people of the United States. my judgment history had taught the lesson that the president has very- great power if he chooses to exercise those but if he is a tim- id or selfish man. afraid oc responsi- bilitv and afraid of he can of course manufacture ingenious excuses for failu'-e exeic'.se them. interest af the American peo- ple demanded that I should act just exactly as I and I would have taken the action I actually did take even thought I had been certain that to rlo so meant my prompt retirement at the next for the only thing which makes it worth while to hold a big office is taking advantage of the opportunities the offics offers to do some big thing that ought tc be done and is worth Start of Race.

October Georgia and Florida railroad is pletely tied up today and provisions j are being carried to towns along the line by wagons from other roads The railroad is making frantic effortr to secure federal in terference. So far rioting has orevented the moving of trains and two negroes have besn killed and six injured. The along- the road are in sympathy the strikers. j Investigation by the police depart- ment late Thursday afternoon aad Fridar indicated that allegations to the effect that John H. Mueller and Russell Soldiers' Home in- died as the result of murder- ous assaults made on them while they were in the city spending their pen- sion are without foundation. On the other hand the police insist that both men were probably fatally injured by falls while either intoxi- cated or suffering with some kind of a fit While those homt inmates who be- came alarmed at tlv of the deaths of the two under the same suspicious circumstances are now willing to concede that Mueller's and Marquart's injuries resulted from falls rather than they are still insisting- that there is something queer about the manner in which the veterans' money disappears when they get in the city. An instance of the quick disappearance of an old soldier's pension is shown with the arrest of James aged Thursday ev- ening. He fell at the corner of Mara- ket and Jackson streets and1 cut a bad gash over his eye. He was removed to the police station where a charge of drunkenness was preferred against him.
