EDISON'S OWN ILK IN T R
As Experimenter, Roosovelt Makes
Hit wlth Inventor.
West Orange, N. J., Oct. G.-Thomas
A. Edison told reporters today that he
was for Theodore Roosevelt becauae
the colonel had a dominant personality
and knew men better than the other
"He is capable of handling the bunch
that he has to come in contact with, if
he is elected President," said the in
ventor. "By the bunch 1 mean all the
politicians of the United States, and
that rare collection in the Washington
The great issues of the catnpaign, he
believes, are the recall and the referen-
"The Americans are experimenters,"
he said. "We want to try experiments
in government. They're trying them
out in Oregon and California, and it
seems to work all right there. If we
carry out the Oregon idea we can try a
lot of experiments without any danger,
"The tariff as an issue is a political
blufF. It is what we call in merchan-
dising a 'talking point.' There are
some abuses in the tariff, but it is not
all wrong. If it were changed, the
changes ought to be made over a period
of years. A man can take enough
strychnine to kill an elephant, and take
it without harm, if he takes it in small
doses first, and gradually increases it.
I suggested that to the newspapers, and
they took it up. Now Wilson urges the
same thing. It is a good idea.
"That is such a bungling set down
there at Washington. There are too
many lawyers in Congress and not
enough manufacturers. Roosevelt
would win easily if there were not bo
many sheep in the world who won't
The inventor declared the agitation
against campaign contributions was
also all a bluff another "talfcing
point" for the Democrats. Roosevelt
merely did what all the rest did, he
"So long as I can remember," he de
clared. "Presidents have accepted
euch contributions. Lincoln did so, and
so did McKinley, through Mark Hanna.
It's the system. He couldn't help it.
He wouldn't take it knowingly. You
can't blame a President, Democratic or
Republican, for doing it.
"The high cost of living is an eco
nomic question," he continued, taking
another tack. "Forty Senates and
forty Houses of Representatives could
not change that. We want to live
better, and we're living a little higher
in this country. Only in the last eight
years have the farmers been paying ofT
their mortgages. For years previous
they were making no money. Patting
on a wage basis the work he and his
family were doing, he was losing out.
Now the farmer has his innings. The
machinists and clerks are suffering.
The farmer had the dirty end of the
stick forty years, and now he's got the
other end. During that forty years the
East made money, while the farmer
made nothing. Now the farmer is
making a bunch of it, and the East is
not making much."
"How long have you been a Progres
sive?" Mr. Edison was asked.
"I'm a natural born Progressive," he
replied. "I believe in change, because
all progress is the result of change. I
should love to see the referendum and
the recall tried. You've got to start in
the public schools to educate the children
when they're eight years old to get
them to rcalize the benelit of the refer
endum and the recall."
Should Roosevelt succeed, his election
would create no disturbancein business,
Mr. Edison said, adding that the coun
try was getting used to business dis
turbances." THE BOSSES OR THE PEOPLE.
Joseph Walker, candidate of the Re
publican party for governor, in accept
ing the nomination made a most strik
ing appeal for the support of the Pro
gressive candidates. Mr. Walker de
clared trenchantly against the bossism
of the old parties. Mr. Walker Bpoke
from ample experience of conditions
here. Said he:
"If the Republican party is to return
to the confidence of the people, it must
get rid of Penrose and Penroseism. In
fact, it must get rid of bossism and ma
chine rule of every kind.
"If the Democratic party ia to gain
the confidence of the people it, too,
must get rid of Murphyism and
The Republican party had its great
opportunity at Chicago, in June, to east
off bossism. It had the mandate of
millions of Republicans in open, un
bosscd caucus to do so. And this was
thrown contemptuously into the waste
basket by these bosses by Penrose,
Barnes, Crane, Guggenheim and the
Now the man who accepts the work
of that convention accepts the bossism
and shares its responsibilty. He proves
by his ownjact how hopeless it is to ex-
pect and form such an organization. A
protest against bossism undor such cir
cumstances is a hollow sham.
Bossism has both the old parties
firmly in its grasp. The Republicans
have betrayed the confidence given to
them by the people in a way to destroy
faith; the Democrats have done
nothing to win confidence.
There is one organization before the
country which is devoting its whole
energy to the fight for real rule of the
people and for the overthrow of the
boss. Thia is the Progressive party.
It standa squarely for the use of the
governmental machinery that will give
the effective control to the people in
stead of leaving it in, the hands of the
Men like Walker, who see the evil,
even if they have not the courage of
their convictions to combat it, help
point the way.
Men like Lodge, who, in denouncing
the initiative and referendum, declare,
"The voters are not the people,"
present the issue with clean-cut distinct
ness and force. Boston Journal.
AT WORK FOR THE PEOPLE.
Onescentral fact in connection with
the Roosevelt campaign present, past
and future should be kept constantly
in mind in observing the convention at
Chicago. Without it the evil attacks
upon Roosevelt may cloud the view.
Theodore Roosevelt did not enter the
campaign merely to get the Republican
nomination. He put himself in the
people's hands, and he has declared
over and over he rests his case with
So far as the nomination is concerned,
so far as the presidency is concerned,
he is entirely willing to put them aside
rather than to stultify himself or to
cease for one moment his campaign of
principle. He is in this fight to the
end to advance the work of restoring
the government to. the hands of the
people. That is the great, underlying
purpose of it all; and never once has he
faltered never will he falter.
Nor will the principles for which he
is fighting, fail of vindication in the end.
If this republic is to live and advance
toward its complote destiny it must
recognize as its very life blood the
platform of political freedom and social
justice, for which Roosevelt will strive
with the dynamic power of his whole
being. Boston Journal.
HARRIMAN ASKS HELP, T. R.
Railroad Man Sought Aid for
Higglns in 1904, Colonel
Washington, Oct. 4. Theodore Roose
velt left the witness chair lato this
af ternoon af ter having testified for five
hours before the Clapp investigating
If the committee expected to draw
any very damaging admissions from the
ex-President they failed. He ran
things in pretty much his own way and
the impression at the end was that he
had helped himself considerably in re
gard to controversy over both the Har
riman and Standard Oil contributions to
his 1904 campaign.
Mr. Roosevelt produced a new docu
ment in the Harriman episode. It was
a telegram sent by the railroad man to
William Loeb, jr., Mr. Roosevelt's sec
retary, on October 20, 190-1, asking Mr.
Loeb to call him on the long distance
telephone. It was during this telephone
conversation, according to Mr. Roose
velt, that Harriman asked that Mr.
Roosevelt help him in the New York
State campaign and suggested that he
go to Washington to see the President
on the subject.
Col. Roosevelt contended that Mr.
Harriman's visit was the result of this
telephone conversation and not, as Har
riman himself has said, of Mr. Roose
velt's own invitation. Mr. Harriman
has charged that Col. Roosovelt at that
meeting importuned him to raise $250,
000 to save the national ticket in New
Here Col. Roosevelt paused long
enough to extend an emphatic fist to
ward the committee.
"I wish now to put thisas explicitly
as I know how. While I was President,
if any man, trust magnate, labor leader,
socialist, prizefighter, lawyer, clergy
man, had any business with me and
wanted to see me I always saw him and
if I thought there was anything to be
gained from the standpointof the public
service in seeing any man, then, with
out waiting for him toask, I would send
"If I am elected President, a year
hence if Mr. Rockefeller orany one else
wanted to see me I will see him; and
more than that, if I have nnything to
ask in connection with the public ser
vice of Mr. Rockefeller or Mr. Gompers
or Mr. Mitchell or Mr. J. Pierpont
Morgan or any one else, I will send for
him myself and ask him about it."
"A hum of approval swept over the
crowd in the room.
"During my term of service as Presi
dent," continued the Colonel, raislng
his voice and emphasizing every word
with a bang of his hand on the chair,
"it happened that I did notsend for any
representative of the Standard Oil Com
pany on my own initiative, it was al
ways on the request of somebody that I
should see them, but there were plenty
of trust magnates for whom I did send.
I say trust magnates I mean railroad
kings or men of that stamp. I think I
sent for Mr. Pierpont Morgan, I cer
tainly saw him in connection with cur
rency legislation which we were trying
to get through at some period of my
career. I do not remember tee exact
date, but I remember sending for him.
"I have always acted and always
shall act upon the theory that if, while
in public ofiice, there is any man from
whom I think I can gain anything of
value to the Government, I will send
for him and talk it over with him, no
matter how widely I difTer with him on
other points." New York

supporting Roosevelt with money or
not; it does not make any difference,
What I mcant was that they are sup
portinghim with their thought"
Such bald, shallow avoidance is gro-
tesque. It is pitiable when it is not
ridiculous. Wilson was caught in
downright misrepresention, and he
ofTers thought-reading as "proof."
The Steel Corporation, directors,
managers and capitalists, man for man,
barring G. W. Perkins, are supporting
Wilson or Taft. This makes a ratio of
50 to 1 against Roosevelt in this trust
J. P. Morgan, the controlling power
of the United States Steel Corporation,
swears he has not put up a dollar for
the Progressive campaign fund.
T. F. Ryan, a power in the Tobacco
and other corporations, is supporting

Not one man who can truthfully be
said to control a great monopoly subject

opposed to the Progressive movement.

THE DEMOCRATIC DODGERS.
The Massachusetts Democrats did
what they could to help Wilson out of
the plight in which he tands on tho
tariff. Not a word is uttered by them
of the declaration against protection as
unconstitutional. The free trade scheme
of tariff for revenue only on which
Wilson standsand which he represents
is dropped and ignored. It is a sly
campaign dodge, and rather a bold
But it will not work. Wilson's own
tariff program is free trade, and the
platform on which he was nominated
declares there is no warrant in the con
stitution for protection to our indus
tries. No ignoring it by the Fitzgerald
and Foss strategy board can hide it.
Wilson is for low prices as the sacri-
flce of American industry and labor.
Roosevelt is for high wages, made pos
sible by the protection of our industries
from foreign invasion. And the choice
lies between those two candidates.
There is no other candidate in the
Presidential race. Boston Journal.

ROOSEVELT WINS CHURCH
Col. Theodore Roosevelt, candidate of
the national Progressive party for Presi
dent of the United States, was declared
the victor of the mock presidential elec
tion held last night under the auspices
of the Page class in the Dudley Street
BaptiBt Church, Roxbury.
Roosevelt not only decisively beat all
other candidates, but actually "knocked
them over the ropes," polling more
votes than Taft and Wilson together,
and coming within a single vote of get
ting just twice as much as Taft He
not only got more votes from the men
voters than any other candidate, but
from the women as well.
Each candidate's interests were taken
care of by a campaign committee and
before the voting took place one speak
er representing each of the candidates
was allowed ten minutes to present the
claims of their respective nspirants.
James B. Connolly, candidate of the
Progressives for Congress in the twelf th
district, presented the claims of Roose
velt. Eugene Chafin, the Prohibitionist can
didate, was second, receiving a much
smaller vote than Roosevelt.
The vote polled is as follows: Roose
velt, 00 men, 33 women, 93; Chafin, 32
men, 29 women 61; Taft 20 men 27
women 47; Wilson, 23 men, 11 women,

AUTOISTS RUN DOWN MAN.
Take Him Out Into Meadows on
Plea of Seeklng Doctor.
New York, Oct. 7. Joseph Peter-
son of 513 Harrison Avenue, Hnrrison,
N. J., departed from his home last
night to get some ice cream for his
13-year-old daughter, Agnes. He was
crossing the street when he was run
over by an automobile containing two
men and five women. The auto came
to a stop and the two men got out.
"Are you hurt much?" asked one of
the men bending over Peterson, who
lay groaning with pain in the road. "I
guess my leg must be broken," replied
Peterson. "What struck me? '
"We'll put you in the auto and take
you to a doctor," said the automobilist.
Peterson mumbled some words of
thanks and the two men lifted him into
The car sped on along Harrison ave
nue in the direction of Newark, and
turned east into the Carney turnpike.
This road cuts through the Jersey
meadows, and is at night seldom fre
qucnted by persons on foot, for at night
the road is dark and the footing is un-
Peterson was almost unconscious from
the pain of his injuries, and did not
notice that he was being carried far
from Harrison. After the car had
proceeded a mile and a half from the
place of the accident, it stopped in the
darkest part of the meadows.
The two men lifted Peterson from the
tonneau, and laid him by the side of
the road. Peterson looked about him,
and realized that he was far from his
home, for he could see the waving grass
of the meadows on either side of him.
"You'regoing to take me to a doctor,
aren'tyou?" he protested.
"Keep quiet," said one of the men.
"We're going to get a doctor for you."
Peterson protested, but the two men
climed into the auto and sped away.
A long time afterward a man who
was crossing the meadows heard groans
and came across Peterson. He notified
the Harrison police by telephone, and
they sent the Harrison police patrol
with Dr. A. A. Mulligan, who treated
the injured man, and then took him
to his home. Peterson suffered
broken ankle, his right eye
cut and his body was bruised.
