WILSON BOUND EAST
' WORN AND WEARY
'At last, and for the first time In our
history since the days of Lincoln, we
have a, cause which should enlist tha
support of every sane Idealist, of every
honest and upright man or vision, oi
all the high-minded men and women of
this country whose .souls burn with a
generous Indignation against social and
economic wrong and with a lofty
desire to right all that can be righted
both In the political and the Industrial
structure of this giant republic' of ours.
"Frankly, friends, I do not see how
you ruen and women of Wisconsin can
read our platform of principles and
fall to support us. In the country a
a whole our opponenta have been so
afraid of attacking our platform that
they have almost universally aought to
escape discussing It, and have Instead
carried on a campaign of Industrious
vilification and misrepresentation. The
effort haa been unceasing to discredit
the' Progressives by foul slanders about
me or about men Ilk Governor John
son and other leaders.
"For Instance. It haa been widely re
peated by all the reactionaries and by
all ithe temporary allies of the reac
tionaries that we spent t3.000.000 In
the promary elections last spring: ret
when Mr. Taft'a campaign manager,
Mr. McKlnloy, who had circulated this
slanderous storv over his own signa
ture, waa examined about It by the
Senate committee yesterday, he waa
obliged to answer that he knew nothing
of the subject, and had signed the let
ter witnout tninaing mucn aooui it,
and had not a fact which In any shape
or way tended to substantiate it.
"The statement was a pure Invention,
a pure alander, without one particle of
truth of any kind, aort or description.

no question that their expenditures are
