TU AIO COLONEL
Follctte Declares Roosevelt
Responsible for Defeat of
Washington, Juno 28.?Sonator La
Folletto has written the following
editorial In the current number of
La Follette's Weekly:
"Until Roosevelt came Into the
open as a candidate for the. presi?
dency, tivo mouths ago, there was u
Strong and rapidly growing- progres?
sive movement within the Republican
party. It was based upon clearly de?
fined principles. It stood forth us the
representative of modern political
thought tin fundamental democracy.
It had assumed national proportions.
It was united.
"Into this movement, when 't gave
promise of national success, Roose?
velt projected his ambition to be
President a third time. He spent
weeks carefully planning a "spontane?
ous call" for himself. Ho responded
by announcing that he would be a
preceptive' candidate. His candidacy
began to drag. He and his friends
were In despair. Trfcn came his de?
feat in North Dakota. He became
Ill;; CnmpalKn Fund.
"An enormous campaign fund was
raised. Headquarters were opened In
New York, Washington, Chicago and
btates east and west. Newspaper
wTltera were engaged at large prices
to boom r.is candidacy Special trains
were hired, and the 'receptive candi
oat'i" started In frantic pursuit of the
nomination. In the history of Amer?
ican politics Vficre has never been In
* primary campaign for a presidential
nomination, an approach to the ex?
travagant expendtures made in his
campaign. Men notoriously identified
With the steel trUBt and the harvester
trust became his most active sup?
porters. Leading reactionaries, stand?
patters and political bosses of the
Hs-nna und ' Quay sort became his
clastist polfltlcal .friends ar.fl repre?
sentatives In many States.

"A number of the newer recruits to
the Ropubllcan-'Frogressive -cause, ir.cr.
who. before !903, with three or four
txcen-t'.ons. had either been indifferent
or opposed to the progressive move?
ment, became the no'slest supporters
of Roosevelt, the "Winner." It mattered
not to them that Roosevelt had co?
operated with A'.dr.ch or. ".eg'.slat:on
duTl.-.g the entire seven years he w-as
President. They forget that it was onlv
when Roosevelt was out of office and
in Africa, through the united efforts
ft men who for years had beer, fighting
special interests, that th-? progressive
cause become a -national movement.
"That Roosevelt was for Taft in 1SK>
arisen Taft was denouncing all pro?
gressives as 'plrate.? end traitors': that
he waited until little more than a year
ago. balancing the chances before de
riding whether to east in his lot with
the progressives in this presidential
ya&r, counted for nothing with the class
of progressives who wanted to "wir.'?
not a real progressive victory?Just a
"And they did win precisely that kind
of a victory. They carried overwhelm
insr!" the great stand-pat States of
Illinois and Pennsylvania. That stamped
the Roosevelt candidacy with its true
character. No real progressive could
have secured anything like such a vote
in either of those two States.
It had, however, the outward seem?
ing of success, the sort of success
?hat Intoxicates?that catches the
rrowd. It enabled Roosevelt to win in
two or three rcaliy progressive
States Fortunately, it did not enable
Mm to secure the nomination which
"R culd have compromised the progres?
sive movement and defeated real
echievement fe>r years.
"Upon Theodore Roosevelt and his
followers rests the responsibility of
having divided the progressives in
their first national contest. Stimu?
lated by an overmastering desire to
win, they denounced loyalty to con?
viction and principle as stubborn sel?
fishness. In the convention they put
forward r.o platform?no issue. They
made no fight against the reactionary
platform adopted. They substituted
vulgar personalities and the coarse
epithets of Via prize ring for the se?
rious consideration of great economics
problems and for the tlmo being
brought ridicule and contempt upon
a great cause.
"But the progressive movement dc->,
r.ot consist of a few self-constituted
lenders. It consists of millions of
thoughtful Oltizens drawn together
by a common belief In certain prin?
ciples. They will permit no combi?
nation of special interests and political
expediencey to secure control of the
progressive cause, which is ultimately
te? redeem democracy and restore gov?
ernment to the people." |

Justice Declines to Pass Sentence
In Absence of Labor
Washington, June 2S.?Justice Wright,
of the? District Supreme Court, to-day
do-llned to pass sentence on John
Mitchell, vice-president of the American
Federation of Da bor, in tiie absence of
the latter. He told Attorney Jackson
H. llalslon, who made the request, that
; the court doubled the wisdom of paas
: ing sentence in the absence of an ac?
cused party, but stated that a written
request from Mitchell, which could not
later be repudiated, would bo consid?
If Mitchell's engagements prevent his
I attendance In court during the last
j two weeks of July, when Justice
Wright will be serving his vacation
I term, and he asks the court in writing
to impose sentence, Justice Wright In?
timated that the penalty for Mitchell's
alleged contempt of court would bo
fixed during that time. Attorney Ral?
ston announced that he would get into
communication with his client and ad?
vise the court by July 15.
?Justice Wright also refuses the re?
quest of the ?committee of prosecu
? tors'" that the costs of the proceed?
ings be taxed against the labor men.
; The costs are said to amount to more
i than i?OO in each of the three cases,
' making a total of ?1.500. which the
committee, sought to add In their re
! spective shares to the Jail sentences
: Imposed on Gompers and Mitchell.
; The refusal came on the court's inl
1 tlative and forestalled the objections
! of counsel for the labor leaders. The
portion of tue prepared decrees add
? ing costs were stricken out.
Defendants Note Appeal.
I Samuel Gompers, president of the
I American Federation of Labor, noted
I an appeal from the sentence of one
! year's imprisonment, and gave a su
; persc-deas bond of 55.000, which in
! surc-s his liberty pending the dlspost
; lion, of the appeal. Frank Morrison.
] secretary of the federation, also ap
' pealed, and gave a similar bond in
j the penalty of J3.000.
j As Attorney Ralston had booked pas?
sage for a summer vacation in Europe,
j he asked the court to postpone the
I time to settle the bill of exceptions
I until fall. In granting the request of
j counsel the court made it clear thai
' ihe consideration was extended to the
attorney only, and not to the clients.
Referring to a statement given to
the press by Gompers immediately af?
ter the rcndeiing of the contempt
op'nion last Monday Justice Wrlijru
"I was deliberately and falsely mis?
represented by Defendant Gompers,
who said - had the opinion ready for a
month and had delayed It for the pur?
pose of playing politics."
Gompers, m his statement, had said
that the reasons for withholding the
opinion "were obvious."

enter into a contract binding on you for fifteen years if your
legal adviser?your staunch friend as well as attorney?
warned you explicitly that that contract would give the
other fellow an enormous advantage over you and was so
drawn that he could cause YOU an endless amount of
trouble and litigation every time you tried to hold him to
his part of the contract?
YOU Know very w ell that YOU would not. And YOU
know that any man who would commit such an act of folly
is incompetent to manage his own affairs.
Concerning the light and power franchise asked by the
Richmond and Henrico Railway Company, the City's legal
adviser has issued the explicit warning that it IS OF
DOUBTFUL VALIDITY, IS NOT IN THE BEST FORM
OF FRANCHISE, and that if adopted it "COULD BE
LITIGATED BY THE GRANTEE WHENEVER AN
ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO ENFORCE IT."
A merely superficial examination of that franchise is
enough to prove that it is preposterously one-sided and
grossly unfair to the City.
Why should the City of Richmond be asked or expected
to make such a contract with any corporation as would
stamp an individual who made it as a fit subject for an
