BITTER ATtACK ON
- . r
Declares .RredecessocA Alms
to Become Head of Benev-
nEVKJU.Y,- Mais., Oct. 6.-Declarlng
that colonel Roosevelt "ajms to be
come the head o( a benevolent despot
ism," and that the "new program would
make a'ciar of trie' President," Presi
dent Taft yesterday Issued a bitter at
tack on hla predecessor In office.
iThe President seems, serenely sure of
his'" re-election and of the triumph of
the political doctrines and principles to
which he Is pledged.
"I entertain- no feeling of bitterness
toward 'my former frle'nd, Mr. Roose
velt," President Taft Bald when asked
to explain the meaning of a phrase he
had employed In a speech that tho
whole purpose of the Progressive party
movement was for tho gratlltoatlon of
a personal ambition and vengeance."
("What I meant waa that Mr. Roose
velt' was seeking to gratify two desires
election to tho Presidency for a 'third
term and i vengeance upon the Itepub
llcant party for refusing him a nomina
tion for a third term. X simply regard
my' former friend, Mr. Roosevelt, as one'
of the' most wonderful and rare men
In" the world a remarkable example of
what human naturo Is capable of doing
with Itself, for Itself, and by Itself
When unbounded ambition and certain
attraotlvo personal qualities are united
In .a single Individuality."
The conversation then switched to the
bfol)der, Issues of the campaign.
, Says It Would Be Despotism.
"Mr. Roosevelt and hla followers," the
President continued, "In their tendency
wjould do away completely with the
Constitution framed by the Fathers of
the Republic and substitute for It the
"British form of constitution, which Is
no constitution at all, but merely a
tradition. They would wholly destroy
all s constitutional limitations and re
strictions, and replace them with the
Unchecked will and emotions of a baro
majority of the people. They would
make the Congress a. permanent con
stitutional convention, subject, only to
the momentary whim of a bare majority
of the people that they themselves could
control, and their full program would
iilace that control In the hands of the
'That would be a monstrous form of
despotism that quickly would utterly
destroy our liberties and lead to the
establishment of a monarchy probably
by a referendum to the people them
selves "The Progressive party program seeks
in Its every essential etall to strengthen
the Kxecutlte authority. It seeks to do
this by taking from Congress the ex
clusive power to legislate and from the
foiirts the exclusive authority to In
terpret the laws and apply the es
tablished constitutional restrictions and
limitations For these It would substl
. tute commissions to be appointed by the
President, subject wholly to his will,
that would set at naught Judicial ad
justment and legislative enactments.
' " Would Make President "Ciar."
"This would lead to the concentration
of the power and functions of govern
ment In the Executive and make the
President a more absolute monarch than
the Czar of Russia. In the end he alono
would be the center of authority, tho
gher of all good gifts and the admin
istrator of rewards and punishments.
"In the face of so threatening a situa
tion as this I am a conservative, and I
feel confident that in tho same sense
the overwhelming majority of the Amer
ican peoplo Is conservative. In opposing
sternly the triumph of the Progressive
party s program we are striving reso
lutely to preserve our Institutions from
the enchanting glamour of a dream on
the one hand and the Insidious en
croachments of one-man power on the

Plnchot remained In St. Paul to
day, speaking In the afternoon at the
St. Paul T. M. C. A., and will leave this
evening for Wisconsin, where he will
beard Senator It. M. La Follette. In an
Itnervlew he said:
"A statement was made recently by a
entleman here,' said Mr. Plnchot, re
ferring to Charles D, Hllles, Taft man
ager, "which confirms what I am now
saying about the Republican party be
ing a dead Issue after this election."
Mr. Plnchot continued!
"He," continued Mr. Plnchot, "de
clared that Colonel Roosevelt will not
carry a single Bute; that Wilson will
get eleven States, and Tact all the rest.
After such a statement,, nothing he says
can be taken seriously. ' Taft Is not giv

Just after Wilson's nomination, I didn't

IN CONGRESS FACES
Extra Session Would De
velop Marked Diversion
on Tariff Question.
Aa a Presidential candidate, Qovernor
Wilson appears to, feel It his duty to
speak of the Democrats as a united par
ty, but those who are familiar with con
ditions In Congress understand that this
Idea,' has no substantial foundation.
Already there Is much talk here of an
extra session for tariff revision next
spring In case Qovernor Wilson la elect
ed. That dissensions would arise al
most as soon as such a session was be
gun Is Inevitable. It It should so hap
pen that the Democrats control the
House and Senate, there la likely to be
trouble between one faction of the
Democrats In the Senate and House and
the Executive much like that which
arose In the days of drover Cleveland.
Chairman Oscar Underwood, of the
Ways and Means Committee of the
House, and Governor Wilson have con
ferred and find themselves pretty near
ly In accord on the tariff. Underwood la
a tariff for revenue believer anA wants
a low tariff, not ffree trade. But over
In the Senate a number of leading
Democrats are unwilling to go as low
as Underwood wants to go.
Senator Simmons, who will heAd the
Finance Committee If the Democrats
control the Senate, Is a protection Dem
ocrat He does not label himself that,
but his votes do. He ts especially anx
ious to keep up the lumber, tariff and
he la well inclined to high duties gen
erally. When It comes to the sugar
tariff, the conservatives among the
Senate Democrats are unwilling to con-
alder Tree sugar, and ,in raei, sianu
about where most of the Republican
Qovernor Wilson, If elected, will find
when It comes to the tariff that there
Is no more unity among the Demo
crats In Congress than there was two
decades ago. How he will escape col
liding with the high tariff Democrats
In that body nobody haa yet been able
to figure out.,
Nor are the troubles of Wilson, If
elected President, going to be confined
to the tariff. On numerous other Ques
tions he will find he cannot get along
with the reactionary Democratic lead
eta of Senate and House. One of the
subjects on which he Is likely to have
difficulty Is conservation. Many of the
Democrats are flat-footedly against the
conservation Idea, as It has been urged
on congress ror years ty conservation'
