DALE SOUNDS KEYNOTE
Congressman Dale then sounded the
keynote of the campaign In VernYont for
the election of a now president. The
like of his arraignment of the Democratic
party has not been heard in Vermont in
many years. IIo declared tho Vermont
delegation had always voted against
wasteful methods and also lias sought
to place in power the party which stood
for stability In government. IIo said tho
Republican party is needed to bring good
government out of the conditions exist
ing to-day and bring an almost dis
tracted world together.
It must be a party of power. Ho spoke
of the perils of unrest that hnve been de
veloped by tho present administration and
added to clear up this situation, a Repub
lican president and Congress must bo
elected. He said that weakened American
ism has sapped the red blood out of our
citizens, a fact due to the autocratic con
ditions that have been advanced by the
party In power. Vague theories have bocn
involved which have resulted only in prop
aganda for the Reds and similar organ
izations. He said under the present admin
istration we have had no protection on
the seas. We entered tho war with Ineffi
cient men at the head of departments
which greatly handicapped tho army and
navy. TheVvar was won only by the whole
heart and soul of the American people
being in the conflict. Ho said wo should
generously provide for our disabled sol
diers and should try to abundantly pro
vide for tho boys who did our fighting. Ho
tald the experiment which the adminis
tration made of railroad control cost us
ono million dollars a day. He declared In
favor of a treaty that looks aftor.Am;rl
can Interests, but not tho ono adopted at
Versailles, Therefore, a party of strong
character, subservient to tho people of the
nation and no to tho autocrats must go
H. Nelson Jackson offered a resolu
tion which provided for a committee
to Introduce General Leonard Wood to
tho convention which was adopted nnd
tho following delegates escorted tho
general to the hall: Scnntor W. P. Dil
lingham. James M. Routwoll, Mont
pellor, R. W. McCuon, Vcrgonnes and
F, C. Archibald, attorney general.
General Wood was given a tremen
dous ovation by tho convention as ho
aroso to speak and his speech was lis
tened to with marked attention and
frequent applause. '
GENERAL WOOD'S SPEECH
Gen. Wood spoke to tho convention
In part aa follows:
The situation tn-.iny In America Is
a llttlo llko the situation illustrated
by a conversation betwoen two cpl
ired men shortly after tho nrmistico
was signed, ono an enllBled man nnd
tho other an officer, Tho officer was
trying to mako tho prlvato do a llttlo
more work, Tho prlvato objected, say
ing, "I Misted foh do duration oh do
wuh. Do wait am ovah an' I ain't go
in' to work no moah." Tho officor
looked at him In a puzzled manner, for
a momunt, and said, "You nro right.
Tho war la over but tho duration haa

any problems confronting us, by a
constructive, forward looking policy.
To-day thoro is a general condition
of world instability; a curious spirit
of unrest. Wo find it even in this
country, although there Is no special
reason for it here. It seems to have
come across tho sea.
If wi look over Europe to-day wo

Bolshevism rolling westward; we ceo

along. It has satiated itself with lust,
with murder, with tho destruction of

Indescribable. It is a jcstruotlve forco;

movements; they are destructive. They
serve no good purpose.
With the retupi of conditions of

Red armies are now well equipped, well

So we must look ahead. Now Is our
time to stand steady; our feet on the
ground, our eyes on God, our ideals
high. Holding onto the constitution.
The constitution Is tho bulwark ot
our liberty. Holding onto the nrln
ciplos and policies which have made us
what wo are. This is no time for a
leap in the dark. We must plant our
foot firmly. We are going to progress
hut we must know where tho road
leads on which we are traveling.
Do not listen to any of these
dangerous agitators and superficial
fiinkers who think tho time has come
for something new. Now is tho time.
above all others to stand Bteady. Wo
boiievo the world is In the end com
ing out of the war better than it went
into it, but there aro no great new
and unknown principles suddenly
springing into life. Those who discover
most that is now are those who know
the least of what has gone before
I think to-day the most dangerous
men we have in public llfo aro those
men who aro trying to advance them
selves by creating religious, racial, or
class prejudice. Unhappily there are
some of that type, who are willing to
advance their interests and augment
their following at the expense of that
harmony and operation which we need
In order to meet the serious problems
Wo ought to forget and we must
forget that there ever was such a
tiling as a hyphen. Tho war Is over;
we have done our part In It; our men
did more than well. They did splen
didly. Every man, woman and child
who did his or her best to help win the
war Is entitled to be considered and
known as an American. Let's get rid of
the hyphen; forget that men have been
known as German-Americans. Italian
Americans, or any other kind of
Americans, and remember only that
thoy an- Americans.
Our government rests upon certain very
simple basic principles. Wo maintain
that nil men are equally endowed by tho
Creator with certain inalienable rights
life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Our government is instituted to sccjrc
these rights. So we must f-ee to !t that
we have in this country:
First A government under tho constitu
tion. Second Governmental responsibility for
justlco In tho broadest sense In maintain
ing tho Inalienable rights of the minority
and each individual composing it.
Third A roai opportunity for every citi
zen to better his conditions In life and
, 'ie conditions of those dependent upon
him, by thrift, economy, industry, inltla
live, skill and ability. There must be
security for tho fruits of enterprise. We
must not establish a condition under
which tho rewards of Industry and idle
ness, ambition and Indifference, intelli
gence and stupidity, on- tho sumo.
Fourth There must bo no discrimina
tion based on religion, race, occupation,
wealth or poverty, which results in add
ing to or taking away from anyone's
opportunity to participnto In tho govern
ment of his or her country, by vote.
AVc w. it in oillces ot high axlmlnlstra
tlvo and executive authority, men who
do not think they know It all, Wo want
men possessed of the InsJInctlvc tenden
cies of Lincoln and Roosevelt. Lincoln
gathered about him men llko Seward and
Stanton, not becauso they were friends
ot nis but because ho was seeking men
to help him savo the Union. Roosevelt
had with him men llko John Hays nnd
Lilhu Root, men ot conspicuous ability,
Conscious of tlnj Integrity of his purposes
and the honesty of his designs, ho
brought to his aid the very best men
or inn time. Ho wan not afraid of com
petition. There was no thought of hrlnir
ing about him men above whoso heads
he would loom huge. IIo was looking
for men who would really help him In
building up the nation and conducting
government on pound lines.

committee that the largest conlrlbuti
to Mr. Palmer's champaign was Mr. J.

identified as a prominent oil man.
This namo became contused with
that of Colonel James McClurg Guffcy,
a former democratic national commit

Carlln said afterwards that Colonel
Guffcy was the man he had in mind.
It developed subsequently, however,
that the contributor was Joseph F.

and a former democratic national

Colonel Proctor testltied that besides
advancing f 000,000 to General Wood's cam
