THX DEMOCRATIC BANKER.
FORTY THOUSAND REPUBLICANS
FOR WIL80N AND MARSHALL
Now York, Oct. 8 Mora than forty
thousand progressive Republicans
havo have pledged their support to
Gov. Wilson through tho Wilson Na
tlonal Progressive Republican League.
These figures aro taken from the en
rollracnt lists of tho league, which
now has headquarters In New York,
Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland, Mil
waukee, Pittsburgh and San Francisco.
The organization of this league, tho In
fluence of which will bo significant in
tho November election, Is the result
of a little more than six weeks' work.
That it has become natlon-wldo Is due
largely to tho activities of Rudolph
Spreckles, the wealthy San Francisco
reformer, who has spent tho past ten
years In an uncompromising war on
all forms of graft and governmental
dishonesty; Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, the
Government's former Chief Chemist,
and Senator John J. Blaine, of Wiscon
sin, law partner of Senator La Fol
letto and chief aide of the Senator In
his fight for the Republican presiden
tial nomination. These men, like
many thousands of Senator La Fol
lette's loyal supporters, were deeply
disappointed at the failure of the Re
publican convention to name a pro
gressive candidate. Not realizing on
the hopes of Senator La Follette, they
would havo been satisfied with a pro
gressive of the typo of Governor Had
ley, of Missouri, or Senator Cummins,
of Iowa. They declined to follow Col.
Roosevelt out of the Republican party
because they had no sympathy with
the Third Term movement. The fight
to purge the Republican party of Us
reactionary element should be made
within tho party, they held, and not as
adherents of tho Colonel, who to the
former LaFolletto supporters Is iu no
sense a progressive.
Soon after the Chicago convention
Rudolph Spreckles called a meeting
of a group of leading progressive Rp-
publicans In Chicago. In addition to
Dr. Wiley and Senator Maine, Mr.
Spreckles consulted with Senator La
Follette and Louis Drandels, the noted
lawyer and reformer. They gave their
warm Indorsement of the league move
ment. Other meetings were held in
San Francisco, New York and Chica
go, the result of which was a decision
to support Gov. Wilson .because he In
the Judgment of the loague members,
represented the highest type of pro
Early in September the league was
formally launched and since then an
aggressive campaign has been going
on to crystalize Wilson sentiment
among progressive Republicans
throughout tho country. Tho opening
of the headquarters in New York and
San Francisco was followed by branch
es In Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chica
go and Omaha. In Phtladleplila, Mr.
Spreckles enlisted the support of Hen
ry C. Nlles, former Pennsylvania State
chairman of the Lincoln party, a wide
ly known reformer; 'Powell Evans, a
manufacturer; Samuel S. Fels, manu
facturer; Louis J. Kolb, banker; Jas.
A. Devln, banker; Thomas R. Fort, Jr.,
and George Burnham, Jr., all militant
Republicans of the reform type. In
Pittsburgh tho league has the support
of E. I. McCUntock, George R. Wallace,
. L. C. Woods, Dr. J. P. Shaw, A. Leo

burgh that uncovered corruption in the
city council there two years ago.
Senator Blaine will direct the work
In the Middle West from Chicago,
while Mr. Spreckles and Dr. Wiley will
direct the campaign from New York,
Thousands of pieces of llteraturo ex
plaining why Gov. Wilson should re
ceive tho support of progressive Re
publicans are being sent out from the
various headquarters and new mem
bers are being enrolled at the rate of
several thousand a week.
At the close of the present cam
paign It is the Intention of the league
officers to meet in convention In Chi
cago and decide upon the future course
of the progressives In the Republican
party. The probability of the election
of Gov. Wilson being strong, in their
belief, they hold that an entire re
