Garden tonight, at which Oscar
Straus, progrcs&ivo nominoo for gov

it is probable that ho will make a

"Tho old boss-controlled republi

Roosevelt, "is a thing of the past;
tho dream of tho people for social
justice and the rot urn of government
into their own hands has been formu
lated into a party program nud an

"It is immaterial ns to tho part I

Several of the crew of the (Hjt
