Philadelphia, April 10.-Aeross the
state of Pennsylvania from Pittsburgh
to Phildde hlhia, Colonel Roosevelt went
campaigning today, making his appeal
for support at the primaries on Sat
urday. It was the liveliest day of the
aoms al. n thus far. In no other state
that he had traversed since he began
his fight has he found the crowds so
large and demonstrative.
Wherever he spoke, Colonel Roose
velt asked the people to do on Batur
day what Illinois did yesterday.
"We knocked them over the ropes In
Illinois," he said, "and I want them to
take the count It Pennsylvania."
Thq colonel referred for the first
time to his view upon the outcome of
the fight, saying:
"It we win in this fight, as I be
lieve we will, I want you to remem
her that our success must be made to
turn for social and IndustrilI justice.'"
In his .ddreas here Colonel Roopevelt
made a detailed exposition tonilht dOf
the questieAs ·whlch he has propoundeq'
In repatd to the courts. He again dl
rootee(d 'aste criticism against Joseph
Choatt, John GC. Milburn and the other
Nlew TlPt lawyers who have formed
an association to combat his ideas. He
Imold these maer, whom he termed "em
battled attorneys for the defense o1
special privilege," in taking the potl
tion they do, "nukedly chumpion
vested wrong."
Ie said they are "standing cheek by
jowl with our worst rlu'epesentntlves of
politics when they seek to keepl thei
courts in the grasp of privilege and
the polltlclans."
"These'worthy gentlemen," he addled,
"Speak as it the judges were somehow
imposed tpon us by heaven unt were
responsible only to heaven."
Later Colonel Roosevelt brought In
the name of President Taft. He as
serted that tits country would not be
a good place to live In if we permit
our goveriment to be twisted away
from its original purpose and to be
come a government such as Mr. Taft,
Mr. Choate, Mr. Lorimer, Mr. MII
burn, "ir, Penrose, Mr. Guggenhelm.
and dher, allies wish to make it-a
goverdment by corporation attorneys
on the bench and off the bench."
As Colonel Roosevelt was whisked
acrbsM the state he found crowds at
the larger points of such size' that
many persons were unable to get with
lit hearing dislance. In Johnstown,
Altoongt Harrilburg and Lancaster the
streets Almost were Impassable.
When he reached Philadelphia an
other throng was waiting for him.
Four hundred polloemen lined the
streets to keep back the crowds along
the three squares from the station to
the hotel The Metropolitan opera
house, In which he spoke tollght, was
filled aft 'hour before the colonel's ar
rival 41nd'the street In front of tle,

The last day of Colonel Roosevelt's
campaign in Pefdnsylvania will be
spent in the eastern part of the state.
Colonel RooSevelt In his address here
tonight took up the cudgels against
the "Independent judiciary assoation"
a.d repeated his exposition of a meth
od by which the will of the people
could finally determine the construe
laca to be pladed on certain statutes.
HA said in part:
"Some very eminent lawyers of New
Ydrk have undertaken the formation
of what they style the 'Independent Ju
lelary assooletion.' They propose, to
use their own words, 'to combat the
pread of two Ideas,' namely, the recall
ot judges and the referendum to the
people of a certain class of casts of
judlcial decisions; and they assert, in
Presldent Taft's words, that 'these
ideas lay the axe at the root of the
tree of iwell-ordered freedom.'
4m psrstlen -Me.,
"Many of the signers are distln
lushed men, staudingl high in their
community; but we can gain a clew
as to just what kind of well-ordered
freedom they 'have in mind when we
see nmong the signers of this call the
names of attorneys for a number of
corporations not distinguished for a
high-keyed sense of civic duty, or for
their distinterested 'conduct toward tihe
publlc; such as, for instance, the
tlandard Oil company, the sugar trust,
the American Tobacco company. lthe(
Metropolitan Traction company of New
York and certain defunct corporations,
the looting of which has passed into
the history of financial and stock
jobbing scandal and forms one of its
tiluckest chapters.
"I find also the name of one of the
attorneys of the Northern Securities
company, which, some years ago, was

I notice the name of the attorney for
the New York stock exohange. The

Bangor, Me., April 10.-The candidacy of Colonel Roosevelt will be supported by
Maine's 12 delegates to the national repoulican convention. Four were chosen at the re
publican state convention and 4ix at district conventions held this afternoon and tonight.
The other two were elected a week ago in the First district. Instructions were not given
formally in the case of the six district delegates, but all are pledged to Roosevelt.
The Roosevelt leaders had a good working majority in the state convention, the vote
for delegates at large being 730 to 497.
The delegates at large follow: Merrill N. Drew, Portland; A. E. Stearns, Rumford;
Chailes S, ichbbrnm Augusta, and $Ialbert P. Gardner, Patton. They were not in
Istruse.ad the coniventerid but are' pedged to support Roosevelt.
The platform adopted for the state election in September indorses the administration
of'President Taft, declares prohibition was settled as the policy of Maine at the referen
dum last September and demands a faithful enforcement of the liquor law as it stands;
favors presidential primaries and accuses the present state administration of incapacity.

It Wasn't There
C HEAPNESS in printing is not everything. There
is a limit below which the price cannot go, con
sistently with good quality. One day last week a
man brought a job to The Missoulian Print Shop for
an estimate. The figure given him was $12. He
telephoned back that there must be some mistake; he
had the job done for $6 in Butte a year ago. He was
told that he would better get it done there again, as it
was impossible for The Missoulian to do it for less
than $12. The man said he would send to his agent
in Butte to get the work done at the old place, where
he got the $d Job. The matter was dismissed as set
tied, Yesterday the telephone rang in The Missou
lian Print Shop and this message came over the wire:
"Go ahead with that Job. My man went around to
that shop in Butte and it wasn't there." That is the
way with the cut-price offices. They are not there very
long. They go out of business. In The Missoultan
Print Shop the first consideration is quality. The
price ls guaranteed to be as low as is consistent with
good work. The 'pioe is a Missoula price for Mis.
sottla-work and the money ybu' pay for it is spent in
Missoula again.
