Bannerman's -flrst speech since he accepted

Hi auspices of the Liberal association.
The premier wua supiiorted on tho plat

The vast auditorium was packed with an
audience chiefly composed ot Ixudontrs.
Next to the-premier, John Burns was the
hero of .ilio evening. ' He was acclaimed
by coutlnuoua applause and musical honors
until the, picturesque labor member of the
tliblnet was apparently embarrassed.
The premier said the fiscal question was
the prime issue cf the campaign against a
government whose ministry "made a mid
night flitting yn a murky Decemlier even

The feature of 8if Henry's speech was
his announcement that the government had

could bo decided by a South African parlia

Bpeaklng of foreign relations. Blr 'Henry
first expressed his kindly feeling toward
Russia In its present trials. The case of
Germany, he said, he saw no reason what
soever for estrangement and welcomed the
unofficial demonstrations of friendship
which had recently passed between the two
countries. Regarding the United States,
France and Japan, the premier accepted
the existing conditions and approve every
thing which tended towards peace.
Sir Henry upheld this announcement with
another, which elicited great' applause. He
said that the growth of .armaments was
a areat danger, that fore ' was not the
only remody and lhat. economy . must be
adopted. The government would oppose
aggression and would be animated by a
desire to remain on the best" ternis with
all nationalities and .co-operate in the
cutnmon work of civilization. , In this, he
pointed put, the government had a' notable
ally In the present fiscal system, which
was a great guarantee of peace. .He re
Juiced that the principle of arbitration had
madu great strides.
Policy of Retrenchment.
In general terms the premier outlined his
policy for retrenchment and for a .complete
system of government by the people "for
the good of the greatest number," In
equally general terms he gave notice that
most of the' domestic acts of the late
government would be reversed by the in
coming liberal government and he made a
powerful bid for the popular vote.
Woman suffragists who had entered the
meeting waved flaps and demanded that
women should be granted the right to vote.

NEW YORK, Dec. Jl. Former Governor
B. B. Odell, Chairman of the state republi
can committee, made a statement today in
which he charged President Roosevelt and
Governor Higglns with a deliberate at
tempt to wreck the republican party of
this state for their pwn personal ambi
tions. He declared that If disaster ensued
they, not he, will be responsible.
Mr. Odell'a accusations were a part of
his comment on the situation growing out
of the contest In the republican party in
this state for the speakership of the Now i
Yoik state assembly. Mr. Odell declared
himself In favor of E. A. Merrltt, jr., sev
eral days ago.
On Monday last Governor Higglns came
out In favor of J. W. Wadsworth, Jr. Mr.
Odell said today:
"I notice that Governor Higglns said he
never was for Merrltt. Shortly . after
election I went to Oovernor Higglns and
asked him whom he waa for for speaker.
He eliminated all but Merrltt and said
that neither New York nor buffilo could
have It, . because It would stir up opposi
tion against the cities. I asked him If
Merrltt would be satisfactory to him and
he acked me to see Merrltt and ask him
some questions. I saw Merrltt and reported :
. . . . . t .,
to the governor and he said he was satis-
fled. 1 clearly understood he was for Mer
rill, and was never so surprised as when
he switched his trolley. This Is the worst j
case of duplicity In politics I have ever i
known. Merrltt la absolutely right In say
big that the governor agreed to support
him. He offend to the governor to stay out i
of the contest if the governor wanted him
to do so.
"Led by the collarless and coail-ss young '
man who took us all to defeat In 1MI1 (ap
parently referring to J. Sloat Fassett), Wil
li im Barnes, jr., Colonel George V. Dunn
and others with sore thumbs, visited Wash
ington and strrred up this trouble. If
President Roosevelt had the good of the
party at heart he could have aunt for me
at any time and I would have been, glad
to confer with him for the sake of obtain- j
ing harmony In the -party. If that had been
done all this troublu would
avoided without warfare.
"I charge President Roosevelt and Oov
ernor Higglns with deliberately trying to
wreck the party In this state for their own
personal ambitions. If this means party
disaster,, they, and pot I and my friends,
are responsible. They and not I are to
"So far 'as gratitude IS concerned. Gov
ernor Higglns certainly owed ine some
thing. . Instead of putting out the hands
of friendship he chooses to throw stones
at those, who havt',heen his friends. Hig
gins could have told' me that he did not
want me nor Merrltt to be In this affair,
but Instead he throws stones. If the
president wanted reform I was friendly
and they could have had it. I c-harge him
and Oovernor Higginft' with Injecting their
personality Into thfs" matter. Their har

New York county committee) and then

Speaking of the candidacy of Congress
man Herbert Parsons for president of the
Kpw York county committee, Mr. Odell
"Parsons' Idea of party harmony Is to
throw bricks at my friends. There was
no talk of Odeil or antl-Odell in the
county committee. . The trouble was all
due to Mr. Fasselt. He changes oftener
than the tides. We are in for harmony if
we have to fight fqr It. , j
I make the prediction that Wadsworth !
will not be elected as speaker. We will j
put him out." ;
Will Stay at Head.
Mr. Odell says lie does not know who
the Hlggiua following will support for

"I hope so." said Mr. Odell.
At a dinner of republicans of the Thirty
fifth assembly district, in the Bronx, last
night, Mr. Odell told! those present that he
Intended to remain as chairman of the
state committee until the party indicates
that it wants a change.
From no matter how high a source, he
said, demands will not affect his attitude.
State Senator Maltby. speaking of the
speakership embrogllo. declared today that
Oovernor Higglns' action in naming Wads
worth as his cundidate for speaker was an

tinued the senator. ! "The governor sn
nounces himself for Wadsworth and then
up steps his insurance commissioner, who
has retained hla position . under consider

Commissioner Aldrldge. whom Governor
Hirelns appointed lately, also announces
hlmself for Wadsworth. and the effect of
the governor's coercion is evident, is it
"Can you say whether you intend to
take steps to impeach the governor?"
"That depends on what more is done in

byman Jimes W. Wadsworth of Livingston
eounty for speaker of Ihe state assembly.
Tho governor's statement was made ver
bally, but dictated with more than ordinary
care and deliberation, to the group of news,
l-aper correspondents. He said:
I hav read the statement of Oovernor
Odell, sent out this afternoon from New

Previous to mv going to New Tork I IumI
turned, through several members of the

purpose of securing pledges for Mr. Mer

Friday) asked him if he would agre upon
any other candidate any man In the leala

was pledged to Mr. Merrltt and Mr. Mer- j
rltt would not withdraw. I do not care to
discuss with Governor Odell through the
press questions of honesty or dlshonely.

Oovernor Higglns referred today to the
statement sent out last night from Wash
