TBI BE 1 PROGRESSIVE ?
We have had great issues before to
day, but none larger than those of to
day. We face the 'third war of Ameri
can! Independence. It is not enough it
days like these to sit down clutching
tap clay Idols of an ancient . party in
our laps and refusing to lifjf our eyes.
Whether we do or not, the world sure
move on. ' .......
$ow, all the great issues, of a coun
try, of thiB country, are. not decided
inside of old 'parties, but outside of
tbgm. This is true In spite of the.
vociferations of all the, Borahs, La
Follettes and Hadleys who get cold
feet when the shooting actually be
gins. New and great human needs al
ways have demanded new and great
political parties. If you do not be
lieve this, read American history
You will find there that great parties
have come up and grown, that they
have waxed and that they have waned;
that is why there are Progressives to
day, and the Progressive party. In
tiine a yet more progressive party
will replace this Progressive party.
Always there are some men . who
think, some men who are on the siJ
ofv civilization, some men who are on
the side of the future and not of the
past The Progressive party is ttie
party of the future, not that of thr
past. Oppose it if you like. Your
choice Is your imvltege. But the good,
oltl world will move on just the same.
,5 ""Not a Ohe-Man Party
The Progressive party is not a one
man party, but lie would be worse
thn foolish who did not congratulate
iUon having the friendship and the
leadership of one-of the most wonder
ful minds, lone of the most wonderful
bodies, one of the most wonderful
nervous systems this country or any
oter has seen. Put before the stand
pit man the full tale of the day's work
of! tblB one man, the vaBt range of his
activities, and he will turn away'from
yisu as did the countryman after1 a
looig study of the camel In the inen
aeerle. "There ain't no such a ani
njpl.". said he. For the standpat man
there ain't no such a animal as Roose
velt. fat is' urged, against Theodore Roose
velt that he is a self-seeker - and that
he is an egotist One imagines that
any man succeeding under the great
lw of the survival of the fittest ie
obliged to be somewhat of an egotist
4hy great man Is obliged to be some
thing of an egotist. Look on the front
page for the name of the man who has
f&rged forward, who leads where oth
ers follow. Perhaps you wilj adjust
yourself to a new definition of the
term "egotism." You dp not call the
tall tree egotistic.
But as to the selfishness, the little
self-seeking which is charged against
Theodoce Roosevelt, it is idle to pay
attention to that sort of thing. Since
It is charged, in mere assertion, sup
pose we argue about rthat and do not
retaliate In like weak assertion.
On La Follette v

fatal Philadelphia banquet on Febru

"blew up." If we do not care to be
so flippant, let us call unfortunate and
unhappy that two hours' address in
the wee sma' hours, to the end of
which we saw the bowed and broken
figure of a man wbo had aspired to
lead the .new progressive thought of
his time. It is not fair to ask whether
the speaker or his listeners made the
more unfortunate, the more discour-
nt fhn onil nf it all.

there was a bowed and broken 'figure
of whom many said in sadness, "That
is not Presidential timber now.'.'
Before. February - 2, .1912, Colonel
Roosevelt with many others, was of
the belief that Senator LaFollette was
the natural leader of this country.
After February 2, 1912, Colonel Roose
velt and .everybody else knew that un
der such leadership that cause could
not win. But the cause was there,
the need of it to win Avas. as great as
ever. Do you perchance know of any
other man, who, better than Colonel
Roosevelt (himself, could have stepped
from the side lines and gotten into the
game at this crisis?
When Senator LaFollette, at the
Taft convention in Chicago showed
what many frankly called personal
vindictiveness against Roosevelt;
what many frankly called a dog-in-the-;
manger attitude, he really hurt no
one so much as himself, although he
did not .help, but wounded, the Pro
ressive cause in which he had labor
ad so long., He did what" he could to
lve another man his proving. He
?ave another man full opportunit
whether to hide hehind the door, or
.whether to come out in the street and
meet his fumble. Roosevelt came
out into the street
When Governor Hadley discovered
that it takes more than a silvery
voice and a set of clean-cut, n classie
features to make a great man; when
Borah of Idaho, concluded that re
forms ought to be made inside and not
outside of- the old party; when Cum
mins of Iowa, did not come through;
and when Deneen of Illinois, agonized
at finding a fence both -sides of whicr
he could not occupy chose the wors
Bi,je when all these weak-kneed folks
did these weak-kneed things after tiu
outrage of "the Taft convention the
people of this country concluded tha4
that might be politics, but that, it wa
not government. So they started r
new party. The standpat folk of botl
the old parties cannot understand it
Thev cannot understand that a partj
can be governed by . principles axir
not by policy alone. But the work
moves on just the same.
.Republic An Experiment
As against the leader of this nev.
party at the current date it is urget1
that he seeks to be a dictator. Tlu
assertion is not true. If it were true
would the dictatorship of an hones?
and courageous man be worse thar
the dictatorship of a cunning and av
aricious oligarchy? The former might
do something for you arid' nie, the lat
ter would do nothing. If this were
Rooseveltland and not America, 1
would as lieve live in it as though i
were Kuhn-Loeb-land or Rockefeller
land, or Harrimanland, or Morganlant
Choose as you like for "your own serf
Great Britain still considers the
American republic an experiment. I
that republic is to be governed aftoi
the fashion of the Taft convention
Great Britain is right. If we are to be
ruled from Wall Street and not from
Washington, Great Britain is right
The underlying principle of this rt-
public is the idea of the old town
meetings in which the majority ruled.
If the majority is. not to rule in Amer
ica, then Great Britain is right, and
this republic is an experiment, and it
has failed. If we are to be governed
by such rulers as the men who domin
ated the Taft convention at Chicagc
then Great Britain is right, and this
republic has failed.
Bui, because there are many men in
Americav who are not weak, who are
not willing to accept the wishes of "ait
oligarchy, who are not willing to be
dominated -by pretenders, there was
a: protest, there was a third party. In
otiier words, when the time came, this
republic decided that it had not been
a failure, that it intended to go on,
and that it intended to settle its own
troubles as they arose, in the middle
of the street. That is why many of us
are Progressives, today. It is your
privilege to remain a standpat man
if you like, and to ally yourself with
either old party if you like. The world
will go on just the same

and in violation of the ancient 'law of

You can read in history of very
many wars like this, if you like. This
is a bread war, the war of a people de

This Progressive party is the outcome
of conditions, a part of the progress
of the world. It is bigger than both

Do not join with it unless you like
but do not try to stop it. Take on

The Progressive party is in tune
with the religion of the stars. Be
