"I am very much touched by your
coming here to bid me Godspeed on
this trip, which I am to take. I am
going to do the best I can on this
trip to talk to the people on the
issues of the day, not alone the poli
tical issues, for there are a great
many issues that it is well for the
people to consider that do not attract
politicians at all. They are the is

welfare of the people and it is well
for the people to understand them.
I have not referred to the issues
which your chairman and spokesman
has touched on with so much elo

A Los Angeles dispatch, carried
by the Associated Press, follows:
Declaring that President Taft is a
reactionary and does not represent
the true sentiment of the republican
party; strongly urging consideration
of Senator Robert M. La Follette as
a candidate for the presidential nomi
nation; attacking the last session of
congress for failure to pass general
tariff revision laws and recommend
ing the formation of a new political
party, Senator -Works told members
of the united league Just where he
stood on these questions. ''Republi
cans are now facing the question
whether they will build up the re
publican paTty or turn against it and
destroy it," said Senator Works.
"President Taft is not a representa
tive of the people. He is a reaction
ary, but he also is a merry man, with
a most plausible manner in explain
ing away his mistakes. Taft and La
Follette are destined to face each
other in the next campaign and if
it were brought to a popular vote
today La Follette would be nomi
nated. But, unfortunately the situa
tion has not reached this stage. How
ever, it will be the duty of all re
publicans to stand, by the nominee.
The democrats are split worse than
the republicans ever were. Any re
publican who votes the democratic
ticket will be throwing away his vote.
If, however, Taft does not secure a
renomination, .republicans will be
confronted with a problem. It would
do no good to turn democratic. The
democratic party is more reactionary
and it is split wider .than the repub
lican party ever was. Progressive
republicans, therefore, will be con
fronted with this alternative, to re
main within the party and save it
from defeat, -while working to purify
and improve -it, or if they can not
bring themselves to vote for Taft, to
join progressive democrats who can
not support Wilson, or any other can
didate, and form n new party." Sena
tor Works said he would choose to
remain within the republican party
and remain in conjunction with other
