th moM Utter speeches In has made
tinea ha began bis active campaign for a
renomlnatlon. President Taft hers today
held Roosevelt up to ridicule, called him
an Intense and dangerous egotist and a
flatterer and demagogue.
Mr. Tsft suggested that there would be
"but little hope for the future of this
nation If Mr. Roosevelt were wafted to
the skies In a chariot, like the prophet
of old, and there was no one left to do
the Job Ur. Roosevelt said the country
needs him to do."
The president's speech boiled over with
attacks and criticisms of Colonel Roose
Tou'd suppose there wasn't anybody
In the country to do this Job that Mr.
Roosevelt tatks about but himself." said
the president at one point. "It's I. I. I.
all the time with htm. -
"Suppose you feed that egotism and
vanity and put him In office with a
sense of power and a disregard of con
stitutional restrictions. It would be dan
gerous for this country.
"1 hold that man a demagogue and a
flatterer who comes out and tells the
'people they know It all. I bate a flat
terer., t like a man to tell the truth
straight out and I bate to see a man try
1o honey fugle the people by telling then
something he don't believe.
" Do you think that Abraham Lincoln,
to whom Mr. Roosevelt so often refers,
to whom he like to compare blasMlt and
to whom be bears less resemblance than
any on I know In the history of this
country, would have acted as Mr. Boo re
veil Jiaa and misrepresented me at he
oe7 . ' ,
"Mr. Roosevelt promise the millen
nium, free from bosses. Well then, why
wasn't there a millennial during the
seven years he waa Inane White HouseT
' "One Indictment." he said, 'is the
character of the eampeiga Mr. Roosevelt
, Is carrying on. Personally I feel that
-pernor deeply than any ether because ,1
think tnf la to be lndtotod for making In
JUpA ...of accusatory and "libelous
of tna fatted State In order e sava the
cause I represent, . to come out on . the
platform, and go about -making political
speeches In my behalf and doing some
thing that, a irKidest man dislikes.''

me this la a Roosevelt town." was the
president's opening remark today to a
crowd that met bis train hero to listen
to the second speech of his present cam

"Thsy'say you are against .me." con
tinued the president, "because I was In
farer or reciprocity. Well. I was. 1 was
In favor of reciprocity because I be
lieved H to be for the good of the farm
ers and every other class. It would be
greatly to the benefit of the farmers, bat
the thing is dead. -
"New. what I waot to say to you, you
ate utterly Illogical la opposing me on
account of reciprocity, when the fact I
that before I entered Into reciprocity at
all I wrote to Theodore Roosevelt and
consulted him about tt and told him all
the arguments both wars. He com
