Tho Secretary's Announcement

"Tho funds are deposited in the
banks in tho west and south at this
time because it is bolieved that there
is a special demand for the money
to assist in marketing the crops

these particular sections, but if in

temporary use of funds for similar

The following Ib taken from the
Chicago Record-Herald of August
26th: "Theodore Roosevelt told 200
Chicago progressives yesterday that
he will sanction no amalgamation
with the republicans which involves
"The former president stonned in
Chicago on his return from the
southwest long enough to speak at
a luncheon at the Chicago Progres
" 'I see there has been a good
deal of talk about getting together,'
said Colonel Roosevelt. 'This is the
first opportunity I have had to
answer these reports.
Other people can get together
with us by adopting all of our prin
ciples; not part of them, but all.
The progressive party not only
stands for a principle, but for a
reality, and above everything else,
abhors hypocrisy. When we said the
people should rule, we meant it. The
people- must have tho right to enact
social justice legislation if they want
it, no' matter what the executive,
judiciary or legislatures say.'
Talks on Suffrage
"Before making his address
Colonel Roosevelt had tnlirori hv,
Mrs. Grace Wilbur Trout and other
suffrage leaders. In his speech the
colonel touched on suffrage.
" 'I do not believe that ever before
in the history of the country has a
big party accomplished what the pro
gressive party already has accomp
lished,' he said. "There would be
no woman suffrage in Illinois if it
were not for tho action of the nro
gressivo party last year.
" 'It has been demonstrated that
a woman can bo n mon.o
voter. There are tomfool men who
let politics interfere with their busi
ness affairs, and there will be femi
nine tomfools who will let politics
interfere with their work in tho
home. The average woman will not
permit the franchise to destroy their
Talks About Recall
"Colonel Roosevelt discussed the
recall of judges.
" 'Some people have said I havo
attacked the judges,' he continued.
'It is an absolute falsehood. I never
in my life used as severe language
criticising the judiciary as Abraham
Lincoln in his reference to the Dred
Scott decision. I have great rover
ence for the judges, but I do not be
lieve in their divine right any more
than in tho divine right of a legis
lator or king.
" 'I think the people have tho right
to exercise the power given to au
executive If he does not exercise that
power the way we think best. I
believe the people have the right to
recall them and also to get laws by
the initiative and referendum if thoy
" 'We intend to do injustice to no
man. On the contrary, sooner or
later, the business men who showed
such anxiety about us last year will
realize we aro the only party that
has a rational business policy. 0
believe in the policy of supervision
and control that will make the busi
ness man earn his profit by serving,
not by swindling. We do not be
lieve in the policy of strangling or
pretended strangling of business.
The principles of the Progressive
platform are not new. The app na
tion is. Our platform represents a
reality; nothing more than the iae
termination to apply in S00?.fa' "
the principles of Abraham Lincoiu
to the present day.' "
