I THE PROGRESSIVE TICKET
H ' For President
r . of New York
H For Vice-President
H of California
M WHY EDISON IS PROGRESSIVE.
H Thomas A. Edison, the grent inventor, has been interviewed on
H politics, and this is -what ho says:
H "I ani a Progressive because I'm young at 65. You see, this is a
H pretty rA, crude civilization of ours; pretty wasteful, pretty cruel.
H Onr production, our factory laws, our charities, our relations between
H capital and labor, our distribution all wrong out of genr. You can
H see I'd naturally be for the party which (Somes nearest to going to the
H bottom of things and setting them right the Progressive party and
H Theodore Roosevelt. "We're coming to a new era, and we've got to
H have a big, strong, honest man at the hend. Roosevelt's that man. I
Hj go the whole way with him.
H ""We can Just forget the Republican party, and I was an old-line
H Republican before I woke up. And nearly all the Democrats offer is
H honest application of the old stuff. I've heard that campaign after
H campaign until I'm sick of it. We go on wasting our resources, wid-
H ening the gap between work and pay, our government generations be-
H hind our industries, or invention everything.
H "If we're putting to rights a factory that has gone wasteful and
H behind the times, we try to learn the up-to-date method of setting it
H right, and then we get the best manager wo can find. And that's
H Roosevelt. "We never needed a big leader more. "We want a strong
H forceful man with ideas. He's all that. He's proved it.
H "I guess I've made you see why I am a Progressive. First, it's
H the only square bid I've seen to begin at the foundation and rebuild;
H and last, and just as important, it's T. R."
H .ROOSEVELT ON THE WITNESS STAND.
H Theodore RooBevelt, in his testimony before the senate committee
H on campaign contributions, spiked the guns of the opposition most
H successfully. He has left the peddlers of nasty insinuations in a most
H -unenviable position
H The more the question of campaign contributions is aired, the
H more evident is the sterling integrity of the former President.
M At the beginning of this campaign the Harriman fetters were be-
H ing widely quoted by the standpat press. During this investigation
H the Harriman correspondence was submitted to the committee by
H C. 0. Tegethoff, former secretary to Harriman, and now an executor
H of the Harriman estate. It showed that Harriman had urged the
H appointment of William H Stillwell as United States judge in Ari-
M zona and th'at Stillwell was not appointed. It revealed the fact that
H Harriman had. protested against the appointment of E. A Fowler as
H territorial governor of Arizona on the ground that Fowler was a par-
H tisan of the Santa Fe railroad. But Fowler was appointed and Colo-
H nel Roosevelt informed Harriman that if Fowler favored the Santa
H Fe or any other railroad he would "wring his neck the same as I
H would a chicken."
H Harriman's money failed to bring results, whether contributed
H to Roosevelt or OSell, and that, after all, is the test.
Vj, Yesterday, Roosevelt, on the witness stand, stated in reference to
My the-Harriman fund of $250,000, raised in 1904, that the statements of
iJ o. P. Morgan, George R. Sheldon and others had fully corroborated
Wtj his earlier statements that 'this fund was raised expressly for the New
Kj York state camp'aign and had not been solicited by him for his own
KJ support in the fight for election that year.
Wj& "There was not one word spoken by Mr.Harrhnan or by me having
gjj any reference to any collection of fundB for the national campaign,"
K?i he said, referring to his interview with Mr. Harriman in October
IftJ "n the contrary, the request was from Mr. Harriman that inas-
Mt much as we had amplo funds for the national campaign, and as thd
national campaign swas safe, we could help him out in the state cam-
H "I have actually sent for while I was president trust magnates,
H labor leaders, Socialists, John L. Sullivan, 'Battling Nelson"- there
R was a pause "and Dr. Lyman Abbott.''
Ml This was in response to questions as to the propriety of his send-
H ing for E. H, Harriman in 1904 to discuss matters of legislation or
; campaign affairs.
"If I am elected president," he added, "if Mr. Rockefeller or
H7. any one else wants to see me, 111 see him."
K Again, when Senator Pomerene asked if some corporations did
;'l not expect returns for their contributions, Colonel Roosevelt declared
Hi "As a practical man of high ideals, who has always endeavored
P THE BULL MOOSE WIN I
tfHE EVENING STANDARD, OGDEN, UTAH. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1912. fl
to put his high ideals into practice, I thinlc any man who would be
lieve that he would get any consideration from making any contribu
tion to me, was either a crook or a fool."
The standpatters on the committee were so completely defeated
that they felt a sense of relief when Roosevelt left the witness chair.
When George Sutherland appeared before Sherman to notify the
New York politician that he had been named for vice president on the
Republican ticket, the Utah senator mournfully related how repre
sentative government is being threatened with destruction.
Representative government was destroj-ed when Sutherland was
elected by the secret forces of "big business," and representative
government was again destroyed when Lorimer, by corruption, ob
tained his seat in tho United States senate and later was supported by
such men as Sutherland.
The worst blows that representative government has received
have come from the Sutherlands, the Lorimcrs, the Penroscs and men
of their stripe. '
STRAW VOTES ARE TAKEN. '
On a Denver & Rio Grande train arriving in Ogden yesterday
.afternoon a polkof the passengers was taken with this result:
Roosevelt 64. Wilson 42, Taft 6.
And yet some one has said Taft is gaining and Roosevelt is losing
strength. That is an old campaign trick, to claim much and concede
In Denver! a straw vote of the Denver Master Builders gave
Roosevelt 35, Wilson 7, Taft 2, and Debs 1. A poll in a packing
house on Market street gave Roosevelt 20, Wilson 2, and Taft 1.
A poll taken in several prominent industrial establishments at
Jamestown, N. Y., gave these results :
Roosevelt. Wilson. Taft.

The results of a poll taken from 450 farmers at the Otsego. Mich.,
county fair at Gaylord, Mich., last week, gave Wilson 35, undecided

Of late the straw votes have been so unsatisfactory to the old
parties that they have stopped taking them, simply acknowledging
there is a great silent vote which no one can fathom.
The silent vote is an ominous sign of a coming stoiin which will
break on November 5 next and engulf the old parties. ;
THE MEN OF BINGHAM. I
The men of Bingham are disappointed in Governor Spry. They
had hoped he would lean to the side of exact justice and, instead of
doing the bidding of the mine owners, offer to the struggling work
men an opportunity to be heard. That the governor has failed is
borne out by this message, which came over the wires of. the Associ
ated Press last night :
Salt Lake City, Oct 4. "We consider the position of the governor as
positively in favor of the mine owners," was the concluding (sentence In
the statement ieaued by the leaders of the striking copper miners of Bing
ham after a meeting- in Salt Lake today at which Charles H. Moyer, pres
ident of tho Western Federation of Miners, presided. '
"Wo do not ask the governor to bring about a settlement as we would
have it." tho statement recites, "but we do think that his dutv as gover
nor of tho state of Utah should be to use his authority to bring about a
conference whereby the plain facts in the case mav be discussed and
weighed as to their real merits."
After the meeting Mr. Moyer left Salt Lake for Colorado.
Quiet still reigns at Bingham. General Manager Jackling In his prl
vato car paid his first visit to tho camp since tho strike began today. Af
ter his departure men began drawing the water from the boiiers of the
steam shovels, something that would scarcely be done if their early uso
was contemplated. t
Greeks among the minors are leaving in increasing numbers since the
call to arm3 has been Issued by their own government.
The true test of a man's goodness of heart or the degree to which
he holds to high ideals is not to be found in the lip service of himself,
or his friends, but in his acts in times of stress. '
When the great coal strike was on a few years ago, the mine
owners appealed to Roosevelt, seeking the armed forces of the United
States with which to overawe the strikers. There had been some riot
ing and'a few shots had been exchanged. On that showing the "big
interests" demanded that troops were necessary "to preserve peace."
They said that first peace should be restored and lator grievances
might be considered. President Roosevelt replied that the sophistry
was too shallow ; that when great numbers of men were provoked info
striking human nature told him that some of the men ivould overstep
the bounds of peace, but that such infractions of the law did not war
rant the government in crushing by force of arms the aggrieved, but
pointed to the necessity of inquiring into the conditions which
brought about the strike in order to fix responsibility for the disor
ders. If all men were angelic and by mistreatment could not be an
gered or driven desperate, and if all men when desperate would'
maintain their mental equipoise and would not do rash things, then
violence during a labor upheaval might be accepted as contrary to all
law, human or divine. But while men arc men, suffering abuses and
feeling deeply the wrongs inflicted on them there would be overt acts
not wholly in keeping with orderly government.
In a labor strike, the merits of the conflict should be inmiired
into, and not until the two sides have been impartially weighed should
the strong arm of the government be lifted for or against' the strikers.
Had Governor Spry acted with the same impartiality as did Pres
ident Roosevelt, and had he won the confidence! of the strikers by
offering them a fair hearing, the strike would have been over by this
time and peace re-established.

DAYS AND HOW
The question of registration is one
that deserves the attention of all vot
er at tills time and every effort should
be mado to understand what is re
quired. It is a certainty that no one
will be permitted to vote November
5 unless he is duly registered. The
law provides for registration and It is
very explicit as to how it shall be
The days remaining for registration
are October S, 9, 15 and 30 and only
on those dayB will tho registration
offices bo open. Registration cannot
bo done by proxy, it bolng imperative
that each voter appear in person and
make oath that he Is eligible and
have his name placed on tho book.
At times these registration book3 are
revised and names that were once on
them aro taken off, so It is well for i
one to see to It that his name has not i
been stricken from the list The only i
way to do this is to go to the regis"
unose wno voted in the city a year
ago or in the countv two years ago
stilh havo their names on the books
but those who were registered and
did not vote aro not on the books.
Each person entitled to the electht
franchise must register In the voting
district where he resides and If, after
he registers, ho moves to another
district, he must have his name
transferred from the list of his for
Jmer residence. The registration offi
cers are required to give certificates
of transfer when called for. A trans
fer may be secured at any time and
on any day prior to election day, but

It must bo borne in mind, however,
that voters can register their names
