COL. ROOSEVELT APPEALS 3
FOR THE ELECTION OF 0
I appeal to my follow citizens 3
that thoy shall elect Mr. Hughes 4
and repudiates Mr. Wilson bo- $
cause only by so doing can thoy 3
savo America from that taint of 3
gross selfishness and cowardice 3
which wo owo to Mr. Wilson's 9
substitution of adroit elocution 3
for straightforward action. Tho 9
permanent interests of tho Amor- 3
lean people lio, not in ease and 9
comfort for the moment, no mat- 3
ter how obtained, as Mr. Wilson 3
would teach us; but in resoluto J
championship of the ideals of na- 9
tional and international demo- $
cratio duty, and In preparedness 9
to make this championship effoo- 9
tlve by our strength. President 9
dent Wilson embodies In. his per 3
son that most dangerous doc- 3
trlno which teaches our people 3
that when frontod with really 9
formidable responsibilties we can 9
shirk trouble and labor and risk, $
and avoid duty by the simple 9
process of drunqlna our souls 9
With the narcotic of meaningless
phrasemongering. Mr. Hughes,
to tho oxact contrary, embodies
the ideal of service rendered
through conscientious effort in
the face of danger and difficul
ty. Mr. Wilson turns his words
Into deeds only if this can be
achieved by adroit political ma
neuvering, by bartering n de
bauched civil service for con
gressional votes on behalf of
some measuro which ho had sol
elmnly promised to oppose. Our
own self-rospeot demands that
we support the man of deeds
done in the open against the man
of furtive and shifting political
maneuvers; the man of service
against tho man who whenover
opposed by a dangerous foe al
ways takes refuge in empty elo
cution. From the Speech of Col.
Roosevelt at Battle Creek, Mich
igan, In Behalf of Mr. Hughes.

WILSON FORMERLY ASSAIL-
ED THE LABOR UNION.
The President is now a candi
date for offjeo and speaks well
of labor. Until he becamo a can
didate for office, and as long at
ho was President of a Univer
sity, he, with entire safety, ig
nored or assailod tho Labor
Unions, indeed, he was then their
bittor, ungenerous, and often un
just critic. At the People's Fo
rum on February 25, 1005, he
saidt "Labor Unions drag tho
highest man to the level of tho
lowest.'' In an address at a din
ner in tho Waldorf-Astoria on
March 18, 1907, In speaking of
the capitalists, he saldt "There is
another equally formidable ene
my to equality and betterment of
opportunity, and that is the class
formed by the labor organiza
tions and leaders of this coun
try." In a letter written January
12, 1909, he saldi "I am a fierce
partisan of the open shop." In
June of the same year, speaking
at Princeton, he saldi "The usual
atandard of the employe in our
day la to give as little as he may
for his wages. Labor Is stand
ardlzed by the trades unions and
this Is the standard to which it
Is made to conform. I need not
point out how economically dis
astrous such a regulation of la
bor Is. The labor of America
la rapidly beoomlng unprofitable
under this regulation. Our eco
nomio suprernaoy may be lost
beoause the country grows mor
and more full of unprofitable
servants." I have no question
that when Mr. Wilson thus spoke
he expressed hie sincere, convic
tions. Less than two years later!
he was In publlo life and imme
diately his attitude ehansect.
There Is no reason to bellsve that
hie convlotlons changed. From
