Hryan pauaed long enough In Chicago
to-day on his way to Winona Yake,

the latter's utterances on preparedness
at Ptattsburgi n. y.
He likened the aiaiatle of preparedness
to a drunken man, who ia useful for

"It la said to have been an ancient

at the Unlveralty Club. "It Is possible
that Mr. lioosevelt Is aervlng a uaeful
purpose in wanting the public of the
effect which the doctrine of preparedness
may have on a man when he glaea him
aelf up to it aa a regular business."
