utterly without foundation- Efforts
have been made heretofore in this
slate to defeat a righteous cause by
combining against it the worst in two
parties, but it has resulted in the hu

Even Roosevelt could not carry Cali

platform of the Democratic party. , A
measure of protection in this state is
absolutely necessary to the perpetuity
of some of our leading industries, and
the success of Professor Wilson would

Governor McGovern of Wisconsin, though not in accord with the third par
ty movement and with a purpose to support the republican state, congression
al, 'legislative and county tickets, has declared his intention to vote for Roose
velt and Johnson.
Governor McGovern has given a reason for the faith that is in him. He is
a progressive Republican, was a supporter of La Follette for the Republican
nomination for the presidency throughout the pre-convention campaign and
throughout the national convention. He was the cadidate against Mr. Root for
the temporary chairmanship and was as thoroughly familiar as any other man,
with the methods by which the regulars secured control of the convention.
The declaration of Governor McGovern In favor of Roosevelt and Johnson
is in the form of a statement issued Ijy him, as the, head of the state ticket,
to the people of Wisconsin to whom he owed it to define his attitude on nation
al issues. One must now choose between so-called republicanism and progres
As a progressive republican, Governor McGovern found himself opposed to
almost everything represented in the national ticket. He could not, therefore,

FLAYS GOV. WILSON
NEW YORK, Oct 7 Governor H.
VV. Johnson, of California, invaded
Long Island in behalf of the Progres
sive party today and proclaimed his
intention in his future 'addresses dur
ing the campaign to discuss Wilson's
attitude toward the trade unionists.
He asserted he would seek to show
that the Democratic presidential can
didates was formerly hostile to union
labor. In pursuance of his plan, John
jon dealt tonight with a letter Wilson
wrote to. President Joline of the Mis
jouri, Kansas & Texas railroad in
1907. The letter contained acknowH
adgement Of the copy of an address
foline made dn which he attacked the
"Political demagogues," Mr. Wilson
wrote, regarding the speech, "I read It
with relish and entire agreement."
ifter reading the letter, Johnson re
ferred to a speech made by Wilson in
1909, when he was quoted as saying
'.hat certain labor union tendencies
were "economically disastrous," and
then said, "We have therefore the
attitude of Wilson in hostility to laupr
mions .in 1909 and the fact that 'with
relish and entire agreement,' he read
an address concerning 'the cruel, un
thinking, hammer of labor unions' In
1907. The period of 1907, 1908 and
1909 is now before us during which, if,
we may judge from Wilson's utter
nces, there can be no doubt of his
hostility toward organized labor."

When we read that a savings bank
deposit of seventeen cents a day will
amount to one thousand, eight nun

four cents in twenty years, at 4 per

fortune building to try to increase
one's self at the same rate.
This cannot be done by building
air castles. Wishing is the dream

are the power of the industrious.
