The chairman In announcing the ob
ject of the meeting referred to Col.
Itoosevelt mid the Progt esslve ticket.
Theoiloie Itoosevelt, he said, now
claimed to be a Socialist and the Plo
plesslve party had assimilated most of
the planks of the Socialist party.
"The Progtesslve parly." he con-
tinned, "Is teally helping the Socialists.
The Socialist party Is now
the dominant party than It was twenty,
fifteen or even four years ago. Social
Ism s now the Issue. All tl Id par

Harry W, Laldlaw, organizer of the
Intercollegiate Socialist Society, de
scribed the origin of the society and its
progress. Then Kelr Hnrdle was an
announreil, nnd there was ten mlnutus
mote of applause.
"I came from Scotland, where Un
people are very thrifty," he said,

"The world Is governed by common
ense. bovvpMT." he continued, "and yu-i
will tlnd a good deal of that In the work

talus, Just out of reach of the good
things. If this Is not a ml oral state of
affairs there must be something that
enn hteaU the spell. Private ownership
of property Is at the bottom of all this.
It Is not many of you who could make

Undeclared thnt there was no natural
law onUlnlng that there would be two
Industrial classes, the employers nnd the
employi es. The reforms offered to the
people by any political party outside
of socialism would do the people no
good. The people to rise would have to
run the Indus! lies themselves.
He condemned the Socialist. of this
country for looking down on the trades
union movement, which, he said, was
the tit st siep toward socialism. In
Kiiglaud the Socialists' and trade
iinlonlnts worked luiiul In hand, with the

Resenting the Imputation that he Is

clares: Col. Itoosevelt ha evidently forgotten

Mr. I.orlmer was nn adviser of Ihe Colonel

The (Jovernor after nn analysis of tht
Chicago convention contests says:
Col. Roosevelt hns received fnlr treat

from Ita delegates to the national con

cussed the milter with Col. Ronevelt
and Oov. Hadley.
