Letter from Thomas Goode Jones to Leander J. Bryan

Description:

Judge Jones asks Marshal Bryan not to remove Deputy Marshal Colquitt from office because he believes that the referees (most likely referring to the Alabama patronage referees J. O. Thompson and Charles H. Scott) have requested this action "for purely partisan reasons." Jones discusses the power of the court and the influence of partisan values.

Letter from Thomas Goode Jones to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

Judge Jones regrets that his disagreement with the referees concerning the removal of Deputy Marshal Colquitt has been put into print. Jones argues that the court must be "absolutely non-partisan in the administration of justice." Since Jones does not believe that "propriety requires a Judge to keep his mouth shut when his friends are libeled," he is willing to disprove certain statements if this incident is used "for campaign purposes elsewhere."

Letter from Francis Bennett Williams to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

Francis Bennett Williams, Chairman of the Louisiana Republican Committee, informs President Roosevelt that he and Pearl Wight have received Roosevelt's request that they carefully consider John Greene Skipwith for the position of Assistant Appraiser. However, Williams informs Roosevelt that he cannot recommend Skipwith, as Skipwith was a Democrat, did not vote for Roosevelt, and had boasted that he would get the position despite the opposition of Williams and Wight. Williams also informs Roosevelt that Senator Samuel McEnery also opposes Skipwith's appointment, and Williams encloses a copy of a letter from McEnery that indicates this. Williams will hold a meeting to select a Republican to appoint for the post and will then inform Roosevelt of the selection. Williams also notes that, after Roosevelt's recent visit to the city, Roosevelt could win the Democratic vote in New Orleans or even most of the whole South.

Letter from John A. Sleicher to Theodore Roosevelt

Description:

John A. Sleicher updates Theodore Roosevelt on the overall political situation of New York. Governor Black is not interested in "sitting down in a game" with people who have "cards up their sleeves" or who use "double-dealing methods." Sleicher reminds Roosevelt that he once said the party needed to do "housecleaning," and believes that Roosevelt's hand on the scale brought about such housecleaning in New York, which ultimately prevented consideration of many "unwholesome" bills. Sleicher also believes that the revival of William Jennings Bryan and William Randolph Hearst's desire to be a key Democratic politician in New York show that the Democrats are struggling.

Letter from William H. Andrews to Reed Smoot

Description:

William H. Andrews responds to Senator Smoot's letter regarding the Joint Statehood movement. Andrews implores Smoot to get Democrats Wilfred Taft Webb and Andrew Kimball involved in the movement.

Letter from John A. Sleicher to Theodore Roosevelt

In New York politics, Sleicher notes that The Herald seems to be in Roosevelt's favor.
