, The governor says he cannot advo

criticising the administration of Taft.
He also refers to the national conven

was stolen. Considerable space is also
given in explaining his reason in not

"In Wilson there Is muoh to ad

McGovern says he can see no pros
poet of advantage to the progressive
cause in the possible victory of Wil

says, "it would be a moral victory
only." He praises the progressive
j party and the national candidates.

Referring to the progressive plat
form the governor says: "Manifestly

For the first time things for which
Wisconsin progressives have fought

years ago as two peas. The republican
