Helena, May 1.- (Special.) - The
progresslve republicans of Helena held
a rally at the Auditorium tonight which
was a decided success in point of in
terest shown in the speeches and of
enthusiasm for RoOsevelt. A steady
downpour of wet snow, which began at
6 o'clock and continued without inter
mission, kept many away who thought
the meeting would be abandoned. What
the audience lacked in numbers it made
up in quality and the result will be to
add determination and strength to the
battle tomorrow for control of the pri
maries to be held at nilht. Judge
Cheadle of Lewlstown war introduced
in a fitting preliminary talk by W. D.
lRankin, who presl.d1. The well
known jurist spoke fPr an hour, pre
senting the pertinent issues of the
campaign with great force and'direct
ness. It was a speech whloh moved
his hearers strongly and was applaud
ed generously throughout.'
