to put in an appearance, and the Citizens
League of Hrookl.vu, The reason the hit

I'Nplalntd yesterday on the ground that

play a lone hand.

Thoroughly dlvcouiaged and n little

DIVIDED, SAYS COLBY
ilorspy Canrlidato for Governor
Dorlarps Split Can Xo
Longer He Concealed.
Newahk. Aug. 11. Kverett Colby, Pro
gressive candidate for the Gubernatorial
liomlimtloti In New Jersey, ibclaied In a
statement to-day that the split In the
ranks of the Progressives of the nation
Is ii reality and that it has become ho
pronounced that It Is uietess to attempt
to conceal It further.
Colby's statement followed the an
nouncement that Ulfford Plnchot. Col.
Itoosevelt's former lieutenant, bad de
cided to enter the light In Jersey In behalf
of the candidacy of Kdmund II. Osborne,
who represents the radical Progressives.
These oppose the trust regulation policy
of Itoosevelt. Mr. Colby said:
"I received a very courteous letter from
Mr. Plnchot the other day giving his lea
sons for coming Into New Jersey, and ex
pressing regret that he would be obliged
to oppose me, us we Imve been close
friends for years. Mr. Plnchot has every
right to take this ios!tlou. and I a sirre
the Progressives of the State will be glad
to hear him and show him every courtesy.
"Of course it emphasizes the division in
the Progressive party which can no longer
be concealed. The faction to which Mr.
Plnchot belongs Ii opposed to Col. Itoose
velt's policy of trust regulation and In
favor of extreme measures which the
majority of the Progressive party are as
et unwilling to adopt."
Mr. Colby has decided to meet his oppo
nent In a debate. Mr Osborne challenged
Mr Colby to stump the State with him.
Mr. Colby declined to accept the challenge,
but agreed to meet his rival ill debate at
Montclalr. whete Mr. oborn lives, on
Mr. Plnchot In a letter to Mr. Osbotne
announcing his decision to support the
radical Progressive said :
I have Just read your statement an
nounclng our candidacy for the Progres
sive nomination for Governor of New
Jersey. Your statement Is admirable be
cause it gets down tn fundamentals. It
meets so well my own views of the kind
of fight we Progressives must make If we
are to succeed that 1 want to tell how
glad I shall lie If you are successful In
our campaign for tho nomination.
"You are exactly right that wo must
stand for definite laws to Improve living
conditions rather tliiin for reforms that
alleviate but do not cure. There Is too
much good work wasted In the world be
cause It does not go to the root of things,
and so has to be done all over again.
"Privilege is the one great enemy, and
unless the Progressive party stands
against privilege It does not stand for
anything that Is worth while. It is
absolutely true that our real task Is to
abolish special privilege Instead of reg
ulating It. We shall do little worth
while until wo try for that.
"I wish jou all Biiccess In your cam
paign for reform that will count."
