dentlal candidacy and that he will here
after advocate the nomination of Theodore
Roosevelt. Mr. Plnchot says that the
events of the last month have made It
apparent that Senator Ui Follette's
candidacy will neither hold the progressive
republicans together as a fighting force
nor prevent the nomination of "a re
actionary republican."
The course which the senator has
elected to pursue." saya Mr. Plnchot,
"will not keep the progressives together.
and in that course I cannot follow him.
The statement follows:
The struggle which until recently has
centered around Senator La Foliette'a
candidacy, waa undertaken for two clear
and specific purposes; first, to hold the
progressives together as an effective
fighting force; and second, to prevent the
nomination of a reactionary republican
for the part)'. Within the last month
circumstances have made It impossible to
scrompUsh, by means of the candidacy of
Senator La Follette, either of these two
purposes and the Imperative need for
another leader has been made.
"One of these circumstances Is the III
health of Senator La Follette. which all
his friends so greatly deplore. I retain,
undlmlnahed, my regard for the high
quality of hut past servlosa to the pro
gressive cause, but the course which the
senator has elected to pursue will not
keep the progressives together and In
that course I cannot follow him. From
the beginning I have fought for a cause
and a principle, and not for a man.
"The reasons for the action I am taking
are set forth at length In a letter to Sena
tor La Follette, In which I have notified
him that el nee. In my Judgment, his can
didacy no longer will advance the pro
gressive cause, I shall hereafter advo
cate the nomination of Solonel Roosevelt,
whose duty I believe It Is to take up the'
leadership of the piugiesatrs movement.
"Until. this notification to Senator La
Follette was delivered, I have, of course,
taken no part In advocating the nomina
tion of Colonel Roosevelt.
"The country know that Colonel Roose
velt la a genuine progressive. That ques
tion was settled for 'all .by his active
championship of human right during the
seven year of conflict. which made the
progress! vo movement a power In the
nation.' 1
