In a statement made public yesterday at the Progressive national headquarters it was announced that criminal and civil actions for libel had been brought by Theodore Roosevelt in the state court at Marquette, Mich., against George A. Newett, editor and publisher of "The Iron Ore," a weekly newspaper published at Ishpeming, Mich.
...
The action was taken, the statement declared, because of the publication by Mr. Newett in "the Iron Ore" of Saturday, October 12, of an article headed "The Roosevelt Way," which included, among other alleged slanders, the following paragraph:
Roosevelt lies and curses in a most disgusting way; he gets drunk, too, and that not infrequently, and all his intimates know about it. All who oppose him are wreckers of the country, liars, knaves, and undesirables. He alone is pure and entitled to a halo. Rats. For so great a fighter, self-styled, he is the poorest loser we ever knew!
...
In the end, Newett read a statement of retraction in court and Roosevelt waived damages.
