TARIFF AVVAKENING OHIO
Republican Speakers Find State
Turning to Taft.
TBy Telegraph to Th* Trlbuns.)
Cleveland. Oct. 12.?The Republican
tarifr *peakers who are trailing Oovernor
Wilson were greeted by a rouslng audl?
ence here to-nlght and brought the tarlff
lssue stralght to the fore as the vital
Issue of the campaign.
The prosperity of the nation under
the Taft administration was dwelt upon
by Senator Bnrton, of Ohlo; J. M. Meekln,
of North Carollna, and XX'. K. Andrews, of
Xebraska, an'l lt waa repeatedly aas<*rted
that the enthusiasm of thelr hearers
showed that Northern Ohio was awaken
Ing to the danger of a repetltlon of the
fVveland panic by the enactment of an
OthtH Wilson t.uiff law.
Mr. Andrews charged that the hst
D-_W*_??le administration cost the tax
paycrs of the nation *_"-,000,000 for the ax
perlment. Tbe record of the Cleveland
administration, he declared. was sufflcient
proof of the folly of tiylng to manage
the affalrs of the country successfullv
under Democratlc principles and adminis?
tration. He added :
Wlth the increase of the public debt ln
tlme of peace to the extent of $262,000,000,
with a net Interest llabllity for the Ilfe
of the bonda of $218,000,000, you observe
that tbe country paid a tultlon of $475,
Out-,000 to test the lmpractlcablllty of
Di mocratic principle* and administration.
When you add to these flgures the loss
of $1,000,000,000 ln cash each year. sus
talned bv the laboiing peopl- of the
country, and a like depreclatlon of agrl
culture products each year for a period
of four years. ycru wlll have a reason
able explanation of the severe depression
that prevalled during that period of the

dustrlal depression the Republican party
submltted ln 1S9?; h proposition to re-enact
its policies Into leglslatlon and adminis?
tration. Prosperity again returned and
to-flav Is at hlgh tlde.
How may the mtsfortunes forced by the
Democratlc vlctory In 1892 be warded off
In 19)2 and the prosperity of to-day per
petuated for the future? The answer Is
plain to the mlnd of every person who
will reflect. even brlefly, over the history
of the past. The rp-cleetlon of President
Taft and a Republican Congress will pre?
vent that mlsfortune and contlnue' pros?
perity for the future.

Feels Perkins Is a Burden, Says
LIKE WILSON-HARVEY CASE
Perkins Himself Declares He
Has Heard Nothing of the
Kind from Colonel.
It leaked* out yesterday that one of
Colonel Roosevelfs most speotacular sup
porters han come'to town from the Far
West last week wlth the lnformation that
the colonel was "In the dumps" about hls
chances for electlon because he liad dls?
covered ln the last week that Oeorge W.
Perkins, of the Harvester trust, was a
real mlllstone about hls neck. Mr. Roose
velt's supporter, It was sald, declared that
the voters of the farmlng states were
turnlng thHr bncks on the colonel on ae?
count of Perkins, and that Roosevelt
reallzed the gravity of the situation so
thoroughiy that he was conslderlng how
he could best out hls arm around the
Harvester dliector and lead hlm gently
to a seat In the rear of the house.
The rumor caused a stlr in the Pn)
gresslvo *___* here. The identity of the
Western vl-itor hearing the doleful tld
ings was not _l_Cl____ It Wtt sald, how?
ever, that he was stlll tlu* ardent admlrer
of the ex-l'resideiit that he was when he
fotight for hls nomlnation ln the Repub?
lican |onventlon last June. It was tito
reported that he had talked with the dls
lllusloned candldate about the vot.s that
Hnrvestcr trust and Oeorge XV. Perkins
siispiclons w. re costlng hlm. In faet,
Colonel Roosevelt was reprcsented by his
Western admlrer as feellng tovvard them
pretty much the same as Oovernor Wil?
son was sald to have felt toward Colonel
Perkins Doubtt the Story.
The story was borne to Mr Perkins,
the chalrman of the natlonal executlve
committee of the Progresslves. Who sat In
IiIh shirt sleeves, up to 111 ~ knrea ln cor
respondence. nt the Manhattan Hotel.
"Colonel Roosevelt has not by Impll
catlon, dlrectly or Indlrectly, eonveyed
such feellng to me. We talked over the
advlsablllty of my giving hlm actlve sup?

to bt innecessartly _**_***? Into **____ no
tico over I matter of thls sort, but I do
not mlnd the attacks that are made on
me personally. What I do mlnd Is
whether my afhilatlnn with the Progres?

say, however, that I ia not belleve fhe,
tiuth of the report und I'll tell you why.
"You will remember that the Taft peo?
ple gave out the Harvester correspond

that the sen-atlonal exposure of Colonel
Roosevelt's action ln the matter of the

"Again, I thlnk I may tttaty say that
one-half of Prealdent Taft's epeechea ln
advance of the New Jeraey primary
almed to show up my connectlon wlth
Colonel Roosevelt'a campaign ln an un?
favorable llght. What was the result?
The Rooaevelt people swept the etate
I'li tell you agaln why I don't believe
that thls etory is true. You all know that
the Taft people flooded Mlnne-*ota wlth
campaign Ilteritture attacklng Roosevelt'e
record in the Harvester caae and they at
tacked me at the same tlme. Both In
Mlnr.esota and Mlchlgan Roosevelt made
Says Farniere Don't Believe Chargea.
"I've been readlng the Western papers,
and I flnd that often the men who are
speaklng ln the agrlcultural states for
the Progressive party are lnterrupted by
the query from some one, 'What about
Perkins?* If the newspaper accounts are
rellable, I flnd that, aa a rule, the crowd
gets excltod, and when the question ts
answered Uie laugh is always on the fel?
low who put the question.
"No; I have no reason to believe that
the people of Mlnnesota, Michigan or any
of the lake states are turnlng away from
the Progressive principles. They are the
agrlcultural states, and naturally they
would be the statea which would fall
away lf the people belleved the charges
whlch our opponents make against us. I
think the facts prove that the people do
not believe those charges.
"As I eald before, I do not mind the
attacks on me, personally, but I do not
wanf to let my asaoclatlon wlth Colonel
Roosevelt hurt the Progressive cauae. At
the Chlcago convention, when the matter
of my nomlnation as executlve chairman
was brought up, I told the national com?
mlttee that I reallred fully what critlcism
mlght result from thelr action, and I
signltled my wllllngness to wlthdraw en?
tirely If there waa any dlssenalon on that
aee ount. Almost to a man those commlt
teemen from all over the country roae up
aml declared themselves for me."
