NO CONaRN FOU HIS OWN LIFE
In tha Oraataat Campaign Spaaah an
Raaord, With a Buttat In Hla B4y,
Ha Anawaraa Faravar tha Argu
mant That tha Pragraaalva Party
la a Ona-Man Mavamant.
Tha speech that Col. Rooaavalt da
llTared at Ullwaukea with a bullet In
hla body waa tha moat dramatic cam
palfn utterance on raeord.
Jiiat before he roaa to apeak Henry
F. Cochems, head of the Progreaaive
Party' Speakera' bureau and a Mil
waukee man, came forward and said:.
"in presenting Col. Roosevelt to you,
good citUena, good fathera and good
civilians, you should know that the
Colonel cornea to you la tha spirit of
a good soldier.
"Aa we were leaving the hotel a
few momenta ago a daatardly hand
raised a revolver and fired a shot at
him, and the Colonel speaks aa a sol
dier with a bullet in hla breast; where,
we don't know."
A ahudder ran through the audience,
accompanied by crlea of "Oh, Ob,"
from the women preaent, who made
up half of the audience.
Col. Roosevelt atepped forward and
was greeted with a cheer that shook
the building. He had the old grin on
his face, and It was hard for the audi
ence to credit the statement that he
atood there like a soldier with the
lead of an enemy In hla body.
That there waa no question' of tbla
waa shown by a little Incident. When
the Colonel started to read hla notes
he took hla sjjstetacle case from the
vest pocket, and turning to those Just
about him, exhibited it, indicating
where the bullet of the aaaassln had
alcked it This brought another aym
pathetic cheer, to which Mr. Rooaevelt
responded with one of his smllea and
began hla talk.
"Friends, I ahall aak you to ha aa
a.uiet as possible," a said. "I den't
know whether you fully understand
that I have just been shot, hut It takes
aaore than that to kill a Bull llooas.
(Okaars.) Bat fortunately I had say
nanuacript, so you see I waa going to
aaake a long spaach (holde up saaau

a bullet there. -is where the -bullet
west through and it probably saved
ate from It going Into Bay heart. Tke
ballet ia In me bow, ao that I cannot
uska a Tery long speech, but I will
try my beat. (Cheers).
"And bow, friends, I want to take
advantage of thia Incident and aay a
word of solemn warning as I know
how to my fallow countrymen. First
of all I want to say this about my
self: I have altogether too Important
things to think of to feel any concern
over my own death, and now I cannot
speak to you Insincerely v.ltliln live

"I am In thia cause with my whole

life a little eaaler for all our people;

thought that thif) la a "one-man

upon this point that we purpose to
speak with somewhat personal em
phasis. With the narrow escape from the
tragedy fresh in mind, we suy that

spondlnc to the call of duty, he sacrl-
deed ease and braved misinterpret
tlon to become their leader. The es
tablishment of social and Industrial
Justice In this country is, we believe
nearer by a quarter of a century be
cause of the work unselfishly done ay
this great man.
But he did not create the cause. Re
has made Progressives, but he did
not make Progresslvlsm. He la, Ml
has. been aald, the "political parent"
or Folk and Hadley and Johnson aid
Wilson and others who have won
prosalaeace in the faith. But he did
noMmplant la the breasts of asea the
which the caase embodies.
The principles which now are sat
forth for the first time by a great
political party as a "contract with the
people" have long been the growing
beliefa of millions ofclt liens. Roose
velt during his presidency begaa to
Interpret them and 'to put Into con
crete form and phrase these asplrs
tlons and convictions.
Like all effective leaders or historic
movement, he crystalllxed and gave
visible substance to the deep-rooted
longings of men. He voiced what mil
lions felt. But the cause was born In
tha heart or tbla nation, and there Ilea
Ita atrength. Even though that bullet
had not been providentially deflected
that marvelous fraction of an inch and
he had fallen a martyr, the cause
would still have gone on, because 11

Had Grant died In the field, would
that have meant the permanent dis
ruption of the Union? His loss would
have cost battles, but It could not have
prevented the ultimate triumph of hit
cause. Bo If the Progressive leader
had fallen, th,ere would have been pro

loyal friend and leader, but no feeling
If tbla seems a cold and calculating
lew let ua say that we believe it Is
the view Theodore Roosevelt would
nave his followers take. We believe
that had he lost his life the epitaph he
would wish to be written of him would
be that he had served well, but that.
as he himself said in the face of death,
the cause would go on without him.
This was what moved bin to that
supreme prooaof devotion last Mea
day night. Thia haa been his spirit
since the beginning. He ahowed It
when, confronting the formidable aom
nation or Governor Wilson, he dscld
td to Biake the gght. Ha ald h. f.it
like a soldier uader order: If he war '
summoned even to lead a ferlora hope,
he must obey.
And this, we believe, ia the iw at
