GOV. HIRAM JOHNSON SAYS THE REVOLUTION IS ON
-Before Gov Hiram Johnson
left for Ohio last night he gave
out -the" following statement con-s
cerning the political situation
from a Bull Moose point of view:
-' The revolution, is on. When T
left California of course-I Was not
- familiar with the situation in
other states", but my trio' has con-,
vinced me that the same' feeling
-exists in all of the other states
fwest of the Mississippi as in Cal
ifornia and' yesterday's primaries
show California to be overwhelm
ingly for Roosevelt. My meet
ings have exceeded my-fondest
expectations and in many places
have been the largest meetings of
their respective localities.
"I have been Tendeavoring to
preach -the doctrine, of hurnanity,
so'cial aqd industrial justice, and,
everywhere I found that men and'
rwomen, who have been unselfish
ly devoting themselves to hu
manitarian work are overjoyed to
find at last a national ' political
party that proposes to do what
has heretofore been left to the in
dividual and social worker,
"The common people recognize
in the new movement in the Pro
gressive party their h6pe, and in
every state where I have been a
cohesive fighting- cause Jias been
formed of men and women who
think and who are endeavoring to
do their part in the solution of
thejr country's problems, and I
find also that toilers and workers,,
farmers and the ordinary men
generally; -jvho have not profited
from the exploitation of govern
ment, regard, the Progressive
party as the culmination politic
ally Qf, what they prayed for, and
its success as essential to them.
"The same fervent spirit that
pervaded the Chicago convention
of. three weeks ago is abroad, all
over the' land, andiit is a spirit
which means victory.
"In the states where I have
'been, Mr. Taft is wholly a neg
ligible quantity. Mr. Wilson is,
hardly in touch, while all know
Mr. Rooseyelt and all recognize
his wonderful personality typify
ing the highest type of American
statesmanship. If the east is
anything- like the west in the
early stages of this campaign, the
later stages will witness the com-
plete rout of our adversaries."
