Issues Statement in Regard J
to Proposal Made By i
SAYS OLD LEADERS
CANT BE TRUSTED
Believes Practical Achievement of
Social and Industrial Justice
Lies With New Party.
S3W YORK. Jan. 10. Col. Theo
dore Roosevelt, in a formal statement
issued following the suggestion of
Frank A. Munsey for an amal
gamation of the Progresives and Re
publicans, expressed today his con
viction that the present managers of
the Republican party cannot be
trusted not to en cat and swindle,
and that the practical achievement
of social and industrial justice lies
only in the Progressive party.
Notwithstanding the favorable re
sponses which have come from other
sources regarding Mr. Munsey's "getj
together" plan, Colonel Roosevelt"
says it is useless to discuss amalga- j
matlon with the Republican party as
it is today.
Hope Only With Progressives.
Republican managers, says Colonel
Roosevelt, who explains that he Js
speaking simply as one cf the rank and ,
file of the Progressives, must first leam ,
that "theft, fraud, and sw indling is not
the method In which to achieve the per
manence of Republican institutions." I
Colonel Roosevelt's statement, in full
I ant "sir-'-" speaking as one of the
men" in the ranks of the Progressive
party. Personally I strongly .feel -that J
c should no more enter into a combi
nation with the Republican machine
than with tbo Democratic machine. I
firmly believe that all good Progressives
who may happen yet to adhere to either
the Republican party or the Democratic
party will in the end see that the
chance for honest government and for
the practical achievement of social
and Industrial justice lies in the Pro
gressive party and only in the Piogres
We Meicorae all honest men who be
lieve In our principles. If they come In
with i's they sixall have exactly the share
that other people have In the party
management. I hold that we are under
the same obligations to rormer .Demo
crats' like Judge Lindsey and Don D.ck
inson as to am former Republicans.
To my mind the whole attitude of those
at present responsible for the leader
ship and management of the Republic
an party shows that it v.ould be folly
to try to combine with them
People Robbed by Bosses.
Last Saturday Mr. Taft stated in his
speech that "the result of the Chicago
convention was a triumph for the per
manence of republican institutions."
This Is equivalent to the statement that
the permanence of republican institu
tions depends upon tne success of bare
faced political theft and fraud, engi
neered by men of the type of Mr.
Barnes and Mr. Penrose in the interest
of the perpetuation ot bosses in poll tic j
and privilege- In business.
The Republican convention of last
June was deliberately stolen from
the people by the bosses on behalf
of the prlx'ileged Interest Part of
the "triumph" of which Mr. Taft
f-pcaks was In seating Taft dele
gates frotr - " . '-tct ,tt Ala
bama. When the people had the
chance to vote in November that dis
trict gave us 2.830 votes and Presi
dent Taft 1.320.
Another part of the "triumph' was
seatirg six delegates for Mr. Taft
from Arizona. Arizona gave us 7.000
votes and Mr Taft 3,000. he running
fourth in the State, even behind the
"Triurnph" In Certain States.
Another part of the "triumpl " was
the seating of four Taft delegates at
large from Indiana and two from
Marlon county In Congressional dis
tricts. Whether Indiana went for
or against Mr. Taft depended on the
vcte of Marion count At tbo Xn.
ember election lie received 12.00'J
otes In tlut county and I rpclved
18.000. Another part or the tri
umph" of which Mr Taft speaks was
seating the Taft delegates at large
in Michigan When the voters could
speak in that State I beat Mr Taft
neariy two to one that. Is. by a ma
jority close to 70.000
Another part of the "triumph" of
which Mr. Taft speaks was in giving
him fourteen delegates to which he was
no entitled from Washington. Wh-n
