HOW BRYAN WENT INTO THAT FIRST DAY'S BATTLE
LINDSEY PREDICTS T. R.
Denver, Col., June 27, "The
action of the Democratic conven
tion at Baltimore will haVe no ef
fect on the organisation of the
new progressive party."
This was the statement of
Judge Ben B. Lindseycm his re-,
turn from Chicago
"The time is" ripe for a progres
sive party," said Lindsey. "There
are other progressive Democrats
besides myself who are not ready
to announce themselves until
after the result at Baltimore, but
who are 'keenly interested.
""And the general opinion is
that even the nomination of Bry-
'an or Wilson cannot prevent the
organization of the progressives
"It would take us twenty years
to restore rule of the people
through either of the old parties.
Even if Bryan or Wilson be nom
inated the interests of the country
wbuid control legislatures of
states and the-congress of the na
tion and prevent the accomplish
ment of the very things that.Bry
an and Wijson stand for.
"1 confidently predict that
Roosevelt will be elected by the
progressives of both parties under,
ihe new banner he has lifted."
