The assault took place at the
Tollver home while Lewis was away

BULL MOOSE SPEAKING
AT HARTFORD SATURDAY
Was a Tame Affair and a Dis
appointment to Nearly
Last Saturday was supposed to
bo a big day for the Bull Moosers
of Ohio county, as It was the time
set for Hon. Mat J. Holt to speak
and It was Intended to be a great
affair. The festivities were to be
gin at one o'clock. At noon, how
ever, there were few country men
In town, but when tho speaker be
gan the court room was about
two-thirds full. Mr. Holt was rn
troduced by Mr. E. M. Woodward,
who really made a better speech
than the principal speaker.
Mr. Holt spoke for a little over
an hour, but his speech was a
rather tame effort. He used a num
ber of anecdotes or Jokes to liven
up his audience. He poured It Into
the Taft fellows rather heavy and
said it was a bad mistake when
Taft was elected President. This
remark, however, wag not applaud
ed. He -reviled the President's re
ligion (Unlversallst) and used
language along this llne which
would have been considered highly
Incendiary If uttered by tt Demo
crat four years ago.
Mr. Holt also had a little pack
ago for Gov. Wilson, but be said
nothing abusive or very severe of
Democracy's candidate for Presi
dent. He seemed to realize that
Gov. Wilson is too clean a man with
too good a record to be attacked.
The worst he said about the Gov
ernor was that a college president
Is not fit to be President of the
United States, evidently forgetting
that Mr. Wilson Is making the best
Governor New Jersey ever had
and has shown the highest order of
official and executive ability. Mr.
Holt evidently had a set speech,
but he seemed to get his notes con
fused. It was announced at the start
that there would be two speeches,
and at the conclusion of Mr. Holt's
speech, Mr. Ed Bassett, of Leltch
fleld, who Is a candidate for Con
gress In this district on the Bull
I Moose ticket, was Introduced. Mr.
Bassett Is n banker ami also has
0 stock In the Onlt TTdiikp T.niilsvlllR.
Originally, It Is said, he was a
Democrat, then he turned Republic
an, and now he has Joined the bolt
ing crowd. Personally he Is said to
be a very Boclable and good busi
But Mr. Bassett's speech was a
"frost." Scarcely had he begun
speaking, when the audience began
to get up nnd file out In silent
droves, and at the conclusion there
was a mere handful of people left,
fully two-third., of the crowd hav
ing gone. Mr. Bassett seemed to
have a rather lengthy memorized
talk which he delivered In n dull
monotone. He also had some notes
which h0 had difficulty in finding
and connecting with his recitation.
The fading crowd did not stop him
and he grimly continued to the end.
He likewise "landed" on the Taft
crowd and hit the Democrats such
telling blows that we hardly know
whether they will recover from the
fierce attack or not.
It was very noticeable that neith
er one of the speakers appealed for
the negro vote or said anything at
all alone this line, nlthouch there
.'was a good sized bunch of darkies
present. The speakers seemed to
be following the example of Col.
Roosevelt, who has Intimated In his
speeches that the Northern negro Is
all right, but the Southern negro
has no right to the ballot.
Altogether the speaking fell flat;
and there was nothing about It to
enthuse any voter. In fact It seem
ed to be a bitter disappointment to
most of the crowd.

Qulgglns, of Caneyvlllo, will move

If Colonel Roosevelt continues to

Mr. Beverldge, speaking for the
Colonel, repeated the latter's recent
attempt to show thnt Mr. Wilson
has made a very Inefficient Gover
nor of New Jersey because no
change has been made In the last
two years In the Incorporation laws
of that State.
An inefficient Governor? It Is to
laugh. The man who, with a hos
tile Legislature, put through such
measures as the Presidential pri
mary and general election laws, the
corrupt practices act, the public
' utilities law,
I pensatlon act, the cold storage law,
I the commission government act and
many other good measures too nu

I Colonel Roosevelt, it will be rc
i called, apologized the other day fof
i his failure to do anything with the
tariff while he was President, say
1 Ing that he had other matters of
greater lmportance on hand. In
, view of the record referred to
above, Governor Wilson, had he
j done nothing whatever with refer
. ence to tht. matter of the Incorpora
I tlon laws, might justifiably have
availed himself of that plea. In
' suppressing "Jim" Smlth.the State's
1 chief representative of big business.
he was doing a much more Imme
diately necessary thing than revis
ing the lncorpoiation laws. In pass
ing a public utilities law he was
dealing with big corporations vast
ly more powerful for harm than
the industrial corporations. Thoso
thlnKS necessarily came first. -I -
But Oovernor Wilson was most
assuredly not inactive In the other
matter. He has been, perhaps, the
most wideawake man In his State
In appreciating the evils of the New
Jersey incorporation laws and in
working to change them. He dwelt
upon this in his Inaugural address.
and when the State convention met
in 1911 he drafted the plank that
was put in the party platform de
manding a change In those laws.
The Legislature of this year, being
Republican, failed to act, and In tho
State platform a few days ago the
Democratic party, again led by
Governor Wilson, returned once
more to the attack.
Governor Wilson naturally does
not want the power of the States
restricted In any way, nor super
seded by Federal authority. He has
never, however, expressed the opin
ion thnt the States have supreme
control over the trusts, because,
for one reason, if for no other, he
has always believed that the pro
tective tariff Is one of the greatest
bulwarks of th0 trusts, and the
States have nothing to do with the
protective tariff. He has maintain
ed, with regard to this matter of
the incorporation laws of his State,
the same good Judgment and clear
thought that ho has displayed with
regnrd to other mntters, and when
those law8 are finally changed for
the better, It will be recognized, wo
Imagine, that Governor Wilson had
been moro Influential than any oth
er one man In securing the change.
