ST. PAUL. Oct lt-"I think we hve
the MlJdl West our way," ventured
Colonel Roosevelt today as hla special
train atopped here. Hla managera as
aured Roosevelt that he will carry Wls
conaln and Minnesota, which pleased
I the candidate greatly. The colonel In
tends to deal rigorously with Senator
La, Follette during hla trip for the next
two days. ,
"If any one who professes to believe
. In Progressive theories works against
the third party," said the colonel today,
"he la not a true Progressive."
Roosevelt la billed for only a few
speeches today on his way to Oshkosh,
TVls., where he appears tonight.
Hits at Wllion.
Colonel Roosevelt's speech at the Du
luth Auditorium meeting last night was
devoted to discussion of Governor WJ1.
son, the Democratic nominee for Presi
dent As the colonel said himself. It
contained "two punches." The punches
were at Wilson.
The big crowd received the speech
with wild approval. Thero were 8.000

"The other day Mr. Wilson, In Gary,

repeated substantially tho same state
ment substituting, however; the word
'program for the word party.' and as
serted that corroborative evidence of that
assertion was coming to him every day.
I at once challenged Mr. Wilson's as
sertion, stating that aa far as I know
the only bis man connected with cither
the steel Corporation or the Harvester
Company who Is auportlng me was Mr.
"I stated that Mr. Wilson had no busi

he had the proof, and that If he had
the proof I demanded that Jie make It
public Immediately, and that If ho had
not the proof then he should Immediate

honorable and manly thing to do.
No Particle of Proof.
"Mr. Wilson had no proof, he had
not a particle of evidence, corrobora-

ttust magnate Is. It Is sheer nonsense
to treat such an accusation as that Mr.
Wilson made in Gary, Ind , as being
meant merely to imply that the Steel
Corporation was supporting me with

"I call your attention4 to what Mr.
Wilson has said- compared with What
he now says on the question of immi
gration, and especially the Immigra
tion from eastern and southern Europe.
In the Atlantlo Monthly for November,
1889, In an article on 'Character of
Democracy In the United States' he
" 'The union of .strength with bigness
depends upon the maintenance of char

the nation which Is being most deeply
affected and modified by the enormous
Immigration which year after year
pours Into the country from Europe.

"In volune E of his history, on pages
213-214, he writes as follows:
" There came multitudes of men of
the lowest classes from the south of
Italy, and men of the meaner sort, out
at Hungary and Poland, men out o(
the ranks where there Is neither skill
nor energy nor any Initiative of any

"When asked to explain this In
March last Mr. Wilson wrote to Mr.
Dl Sylvestro In part as follows:
"'I was In the passage alluded to

The Socialists were .expecting this
year to roll up a million votes In the
country. That Is, they were expecting
to do so before the nomination ot
Roosevelt by the Bull Moose party.
Now they have given It up.
They will consider themselves fortu
nate If they obtain' a total vote of $00,000
to 700.000. In other words, they calcu
late that Several hundred thousand
votes which would have gone to them

years ago, the Socialists rolled up a
vote of 420,000. They 'were hopln- to

But the situation with the Progressive

Is radically different This does not

"That Is impossible" say the Socialist
They point out that lately the Socialist
farty has been getting large accessions
o Its voting strength from people who
protest against the old party programs
on Industrial, economic, and social
lines, but who, while protesting, are not
willing to subscribe to the tenets of
socialism, and actually become a part of
the Socialist group. Members of the
Socialist body proper In' this country,
the leaders say, will under no circum
