Ex-President Makes Powerful
Appeal for Restoration of
MARSHALL THANKS HIM
Says That His Hands Have Been
Strengthened and Purposes
to Compel Arbi
[By Tolcgr&ph to Thr Tribune. I
Columbus. Ohio, Sept. 10.--A scathing de
nunciation of violence perpetrated by
strikers and their sympathizers, ■ powerful
appeal for the restoration of order, due
praise for the principle of an organization
for wage workers and a fearless arraign
ment of the officials who have failed to do
their duty, delivered to an audience which
included most of the street railway strikers
of this city, and from the stand on which
sat the Mayor, Cumuli Sidney Marshall,
seemed to constitute a fitting climax to the
remarkable Western tour of Theodore
Roosevelt, ex-President of the United
It •*%;)<• •entirely characteristic of Mr.
Roosevelt that ho should have chosen Co
lumbus, which has been the scene of a
labor disturbance for more than two
months, where laboring- men and others
have been assaulted and injured and where
a weak but honest Mayor has failed sig
nally to do his duty, to make such a speech
as he delivered here to-day. To borrow
one of the former President's favorite ex
pressions, there was nothinp ambiguous
about his remark?. He had at considerable
trouble so changed Ills schedule as to af
ford him suflicient time not only to go up
into the town to speak, but to permit nim
to do justice to his subject, and he said
what he had to say with absolute fearless
"Before I BUM to Ohio," said Mr. Roose
velt In opening his speech, "I, of course,
knew of the lamentable condition of things
which had continued for so many weeks
lie re at Columbus, the state capital. As
soon as I entered Ohio, and ever since, I
have from time to time been addressed by
letter, and even personally, by both sides,
asking 1 me to come to Columbus and speak.
I will say frankly that I did not like to
come here, but I like still less dodging,
Bad BO I have come. I notice I have been
advertised to speak on the subject of law
and order, and so 1 shalL But 1 shall also
speak on justice, for exactly as it is the
duty of all good citizens to see absolutely
and without reserve that law and order
prevail, it Is just as much their duty to
see that Justice prevails."
"Violence Should Be Repressed."
"The first essential to the achievement of
justice is that law and order shall obtain,
that violence shall be repressed." Mr.
Roosevelt declared slowly and with empha
dis. and added:
"Especially Bhould we abhor and repro
bate the conduct of the public servant who,
for any reason, fails in bis duty in this re
gard; but we must equally condemn the
public servants and ourselves— the people
also are a.- responsible as the public ser
vants, if we stop content with the mere
establishment of law and order, we fail to
do our further duty, which is, by thorough--
Koing investigation to find out whether Jus
tice has been denied and injustice com
mitted, and then to use the whole power of
Urn government to right any wrong that
has been done." -
Then he went on to say that such conflict
ing statements regarding the causes of the
strike of the motormen and conductors had
been made to him that It was impossible
for him to determine the merits of the case.
"It is alleged by almost every one,*" he
.-■aid, "that there have been repeated and
brutal acts of violence, ranging from ac
tual assault to bomb throwing-, and finally
to the use of that weapon of the meanest,
the basest, the most cowardly type of as
sassin, dynamite."' The man who will be
guilty of using dynamite to injure bis fel
low men and then himself to escape unhurt
he described as occupying "the most evil
eminence of that table land of infamy on
which all assassins stand.'
With the recent mutiny of members of
the police force m mind. Mr. Roosevelt said
that i* had always looked back with pride
to the time when he had been connected
with the New York police force, and that
he held the policeman who did his duty In
high estimation. Then lie added: "A police
man who mutinies, who refuses to do his.
duty, stands on a lower level than that of
the professional law-breaker. Such a police
man ranks with the soldier who mutinies in
the face of the enemy, and should be con
signed to the pit of oblivion."
Gives Attention to Attorneys.
From Uk mutinous policemen the ex-
President turned his attention to the at
torneys for the strikers, one of whom,
Prank S Uonett, is the Democratic can
didate for Congress "it has been a' l *"^' l ."
said Mr. Roosevelt "that the attorneys for
tho strikers habitually appear for every
miscreant who is arrested for assault or
other disorder and furnish him bail. H"
that is tru.». in order to maintain their good
name wage workers should gel rid of the
attorneys. They should yet rid of attor
neys who by such action cast doubt upon
the ..... .■ ■ of tin men who disclaim re
sponsibility: for or sympathy with such
AKiiiii sting on the necessity of ii' ■■•"'
restoring order, Air. Roosevelt dwelt briefly
on the responsibility of the employers and
their disgrace wiM it prove that they or
their Ikutenants had been guilty of viola
tions of the law. He declared that the
people were interested parties in this eon
flict, and that they should see first that
older was restored and then that those re
sponsible for the strike's lons continuance
should le punished. He , said he had been
informed, on the one hand, that the origi
nal cause or ll.e trouble ha.<] been the dis
charge vi certain men who had asked for
an increase of wages, and that If that
were true, such conduct on the part «>f the
railway company would be infamous.
On the other band he had been told the
strike was due to ■'.' determination of the
railway company to prevent i ■•• formation
.if a union among its men. That, lie de
blared, would be almost as bad aa the. first.
He suid he was an honorary member of a
onion himself. and, were he a wage work
er he would certainly join the union ; but
when he bad joined he would always re
member that he was first an American
citizen, because, he said, "Uncle Sam comes
at the top of everything."
"In our modern industrial system the
union in just as necessary as the corpora^
tion," continued -Mr. Roosevelt. "«n<l In our
modern system of Industrialism It ii often
an absolute necessity that there BhaJ] be
collective bargaining !j y the employes, au<l
such collective bargaining in but one •■: tin

dary boycott. Uiit it is not Jess ••" outrage
to discriminate Timfnri Itlm because he
vrishes to i..--. / .i union or to refuse to deal
with i» union '■■..'., organized."
Want Law Absolutely Obeyed.
Afic:" Insisting <;.. the ascertainment '-'-
th*> f»<-us as Hie csfontial to enact justice
ar.-J on the advisability at arbitration, Mr.
Roosevolt concluded as follows:
".You was** workers and you reprefctiila-

tives of the company set- to it that the law
is absolutely obeyed, that there is no chance
of saying that either the wage earners or
the corporation favored lawbreakers or
law-breaking, and let not your civil ser
vants trust to the good will of either Bide,
but to the might of the civil aim. See to
it that every scoundrel Mho seeks brutally
to assault any man is punished with the
disapprobation of every man in the com
munity. Frown on the lawless and the
disorderly, and when you have obtained
law and order remember that on it you
are to erect the structure of Justice. __. In

it that justice. 5s done, and thßt no injustice
perpetrated in the past continues. Take
the two positions and you will' have de
served well, not only of the city of Colum
bus and of the state of Ohio, but of the
people of the Republic in which we live,"
Throughout Mr. Roosevelt's speech Mayor
Marshall eat silent, and gave no Indication
of his leelings, but at the close he grasped
the -President hand, saying: "I am
inexpressibly indebted to you, and you
have strengthened my hands In that I can
now repeat what you have said."
Later, on the way to the railroad station.
the Mayor announced his purpose of com
pelling both parties to the strike to arbi
trate. When told this later Mr. Roosevelt
remarked that he hoped the Mayor would
not forget that tba first essential, •which
must precede arbitration, was the restora
tion of order.
No more dramatic scene lias been pre
sented during Mr. Roosevelt's Western tour
than that which attended his address at
Columbus. Two regiments of the United
States army from Columbus Barracks,
whose assistance had been cheerfully
granted by President Taft. escorted the
automobile carrying the ex-President and
helped to maintain order. An assemblage
of upward of twelve thousand people were
gathered in the public park, in the centre
of which a stand had been erected from
which Mr. Roosevelt spoke. In the crowd
were many of the strikers, according to
a local police official, and it was noticeable
that they applauded as vigorously as did
the rest of the crowd, which received
every denunciation of lawlessness and every
demand for the restoration of order with
Metcalf <n Charge of Arrangements.
J. A. Metcalf, chairman of the reception
committee appointed by the North Side
Chaml>er of Commerce, had charge of the
arrangements, which were admirable, lie
it wa:-: who wrote to the President asking
for the presence the troops and who re
ceived assurance over the signature of
Secretary Norton that they would be there.
For two months Columbus has been the
scene of on.- of the most disorderly strikes
in the industrial history of the country.
The Mayor appears to have been wholly
unwilling to interfere with the s<nkers.
who have resorted not only to the w-r- of
dynamite to destroy the railway company's
property, but have invented the pepper
bomb, madn of thin biscuit paste and
liil<'d with red pepper, which when thrown
into a streetcar breaks, thus forcing 1 the
passengers to lake flight. The police have
tently refused to interfere to restore
order, and when appealed to have de
clared that they had their orders, while
recently some thirty of them mutinied
when ordered to charge the strikers and
were immediately "forgiven" by Mayor
Marshall. Under Ohio legislation the Gov
ernor cannot declare martial law ex
cept on an appeal from the municipal au
thorities or by direction of the legislature.
Governor Harmon Is seriously blamed be
cause he has not railed the legislature in
special session to deal with the situation.

in Columbus for Boma time. It has bten
until This -week, compelled to take its order.*
from me Mayor and his <'hief of police,
which has made its presence wholly biei."
The friends of the railway company insist
that the motormen and conductors have
had no occasion to strike, and that no more
than "Y> out <»f 750 "platform men" have
been on strike. They set forth that the
railway company is a profit sharing- Insti
tution, paying dividends to its employes the
same as to shareholders, each man's yearly
wages h*-iiisr taken as the basis for compu
tation, on which lie received the same per
centage of dividend as a stockholder. ii la
further stated that there are more than
two thousand factories other than ci^ar
Factories in Columbus, and that this strike
is the beginning of an effort on the part of
the American Federation of Labor to make
Columbus a union town— an assertion which
Kiv-s some color to the representation
made to Mr. Roosevelt, that the strike has
been largely due to the desire of the com
pany to resist the organization or its men.
Attends Labor Union Meeting,
It is typical of ex-President Roosevelt
that the last thing he did before leaving
Cincinnati was to attend last night after
the opera the lodge meeting of tho railway
firemen, who had remained in session to
receive him. He made the lodge a brief
address, in which he. extolled the advan
tages of a. well controlled labor organiza
tion, and declared that all such should be
kept free from anything which could give
its enemies the slightest excuse for charg
ing that It was a lawless institution.
The last of the rear-platform speeches of
the trip was made at Bteubenville, Ohio,
this afternoon. So many people tried to get
within hearing- distance that two policemen
jumped upon the car to keep them from
engulfing the ex-President.
'"Get down, please," said Mr. Roosevelt,
"so that 1 can see the people. T thank you
for your help, but 1 can protect myself."
Th" policemen got down, and the rx-
President talked about the homely virtu-.'
which have been his texts many times be

CENT-A-RIDE PLAN STOPPED
Police Arrest a Man Who Insists That
His Plan Is Not Illegal.
A scheme to sell subway and elevated
railroad tickets for one cent each was
nipped in the bud yesterday when De ec

as Clinton B. Tharp. a former newspaper
artist, of Washington. Ind.
Anthony Minardi, of No. 1536 Madison

laid the information on which the arrest
for grand larceny was made, but T.iarp
made no secret of his method of doing busi

Row. and dodgers invited those who wanted
to ride for a cent a ticket to call at his
office. No. 154 Nassau street, where he op
erated under the name of the Kconomy
Car Ticket Company.
The scheme was that the intending pur
chaser buy three coupons for 73 cents, sell
two of them at 25 cents each, then as soon
as the two holders of the coupons bought
three coupons each the original holder got
his twenty-live tickets. Minardi com
plained that Tharp failed to deliver him
tickets for 36 which he put up.
Tharp said he had worked the scheme
successfully in Chicago, and that he had
legal advice to the effect that it was not

TO INSURE PARTY SUCCESS
Says Slanders Against Him Have
Found Such Lodgement That
They Cannot Be Removed
Nashville, Tcnn., Sept. Governor M
R. Patterson to-night withdrew from the
race to succeed himself as Governor of
Tennessee. Governor Patterson was the
nominee of the • regular faction of the
Democratic party, and has been bitterly
opposed by the independent state-wide. Pro
hibition Democrat who, in coalition with
the Republicans, elected a state judiciary
last month, defeating a ticket for which
Governor Patterson made a strenuous cam
paign of the state. The independent Demo
crats v.ill meet here in state convention on

Governor Patterson, ia announcing Ills
withdrawal, declares he will not be an ob
stacle in the way of his party's success at
the polls nor will he -willingly contribute,
in any way to the possibility of success of
the. Republicans in Tennessee. He with

Democratic factions may cr^t together to
prevent the loss of the state In November.
He makes reference to Interference of a
Republican President in Tennessee politics.
In an interview following the Issuance of
the statement Governor Patterson declares
that ne lias no personal preff-rcner in the
matter of a Democratic nomine* 1 , and that

Patterson's Stormy Career.
Patterson's political career baa been a
stormy one, including his defeat of former
Senator K. W. Carmack for th» Governor
ship nomination, followed by the killinp of
I'armack here by th" Coopers, their trial,
which attracted nation-wide attention, and
Patterson's pardon of D. B. Cooper within
a few minutes after his conviction had been
sustained by the Supreme Court.
Governor Patterson's statement of with
drawal is as follows:
"To the Democrats of Tennessee:
"I became a candidate for Governor for

wishes. A large majority of my friends,
