from the time Ilobert W. Bruere
alleged llmt the Progressive parly plat

tiif constitution of the. Charity Organl
y.tion fr-'oclcty the tempcruturc In the
( l urch of the Ascension last night
t. 11 up above summer hent.
When J. Hampden Dougherty as
F' tel tliii t In lib opinion the. fame
p r y was due to the disappointment
i f a man who was defeated for the
tlcpnhllciin Presidential nomination, It
went to the "blood" stage.' and showed
signs of popping the mercury out of
th" end of the. tube.
It required nil the cooling powers of
t' e Hev, l'ercy Stlckney Grant to pre
vent such a thing from happening and
t ip only way ho succeeded In doing It
was In removing" the thermometer or
In adjourning the meeting.
It was the first session of the Public
mm of the church, onco made lively
' Alexander Irvine and his topics,
'i ti subject was "Politics," with one
e-vukrr from each of thp three big
I ittlfs uud, of course, Mr. Uniere from
t i - Socialists, Mr. Dougherty was to
.lust about the time Abram I. Elkus
appeared to represent the Democrats
!'ipr werp Indications of considerable
t.ibd party sentiment. There were a
g.cat many women present and they
hail the courage of their convictions If
they did not have a vote.
.Mr. lilkus declared t lie keynote of tlvj
l'rmocratle party was "equal oppor
tunities for all and special privileges for
none." Up Kald this principle should
b" applied to the tariff as well as to all
o her pconomlc questions. Ho explained
tin' course of the protective tariff and
then declared It was fooll.sh to believe
thai the Democracy would lower wag.'s,
because Its party was mndo up of work
ing men. Ho paid a high tribute to
Gov. Wilson, whom ho declared would
not tear down but would build up.
.lames .1. Kit7.5cr.1ld. who Is running
for the Supreme Court on the Progres
sive ticket, spoke of his party's plat
form ns a contract and said that tlvj
party contracted to do everything It
promised from abolishing child labar
tn the Initiative, referendum and tho
"If the courts say any of these things
are unconstitutional." he declared, "tho
people shall 1m vc rights to say they
shall be done notwithstanding the Con
stitution." When Mr. Kltzgcrnld said the mem
bers of tho party were ready to die
for their principles, the church was
disturbed by npp'ause, which was
quickly stopped by Mr. (Jrant.
Then Mr. llrucro paid his respects
to the three parties, which, he dpclarcd,
offered nothing decisive. He was speak
ing of social Justice when be made the
reference to the Progressiva party
whli h caused every Progressive In the
audience t- look horrUlrd. Wlipn he
had finished, and no Jtepubllcan had
shown up. the meeting was shifted over
to the Parish House around the corner
because Mr. Grant recognised that there
was some restlveness.
Former Assistant District Attorney
KlnJIebcrger. who is running for Con
grrra In the district, volunteered for
the Republicans, and drew comparisons
hot wren wages under high and low
tprifTp, hnnip and abroad, after which
Mr. Dougherty was called upon to sum
. .Mr. Dougherty said among other
things that a man was asking for a.
third term, which brought a sniff, The
p-ilffn grew larger when ho declared the
Progressive party had "been born out
of Hip dissatisfaction of a defeated can
d'date." One man jumped to his feet
flioutljig and three women cried "Oh,
no," and other things. There was a
innn of hlstcs and cheers.
Mr Dougherty' added that If Theo
dore llonrevelt was circled he would
hfve nrlthcr Senate nor House to work
vvi'h him, and this time Mr. Grant hail
to get up. There wan no particular
I'rtnonstrntlon. hut four women and six
ni"li were on their feet.
.Mr. Grant had the secretary read a
report and adjourned the meeting.

"The first day out on that vessel I was
sitting in the smoking room when I heard
