Once a President a Man Must
Continue to Serve. He Says.
Six Thousand Persons Appiaud
Pointed Reference to Present
Day Political Conditions.
Theodore Rooaevelt lectured on "What
It Means To Be an American" before an
audience of about Fix thousand persons
v.-hich filled the Brooklyn Academy <>f
Musii to overflo-winK last night. The ex-
President was enthusiastically received, and
hIF auditors frequently applauded as he
made some pointed reference to present
day political conditions or brought home
mnvlnclnKly the. cardinal essentials of
character in the, individual who would be
a good American citixen
Referring to the future part that he
mipt:t lie orpected to play In American
politic*, he fa4d that he considered it the
hounden duty of a man who had once been
chosen President to continue to render ser
vice to the people.
Air. Roosevelt arraipned the bIK corpora
tions for their present day tendency to
corrupt government and advocated a strin
gent government control of the large busi
ness Interests. He said there were many
flagrant examples of a sinister influence in
politics by the men of great wealth of that
class who were always ready to cry for
petty reform, the dethronement of the boss
and the crooked politician, but only pro
vided that there should be no broad meas
ures adopted by which the purging should
affect the large business interests.
Enjoyed Saratoga Fight.
"In this particular respect I know there
are many big business men who abhor
me." Mr. Roosevelt said, "and I wish to
state that they are entirely Justified in
their opinion. They have judged me rlpht
ly and would not do well to change their
Referring: to the Saratoga convention, Mr.
Roosevelt said he had enjoyed it perhaps
better than some of the other fellows.
"But if I had been in absolute control
there, as many of my critics seemed to be
lieve, I should have done some thtnjrp dif
ferently. I Fhould have written the tariff
plank different ly for one thing."
Professor Franklin \V. Hooper, director
<->: the Brooklyn Institute of Art* and
Sciences, presented ex-Fresident Roose
velt- "When the lecture was ended. Bor
ough President Steers called for a stand
ing vote of thanks to Mr. Roosevelt for
his interesting and instructive address,
which was enthusiastically responded to.
There were nearly as many women In the
audience aj= men.
"Professor Hooper in presenting the
rpeaker ha? had something to say about
th« service he has rendered his country,"
said Mr. Roosevelt. The man -who has
been chosen President owes a debt to the
people which hr- cannot possibly pay. It
is- his bounder! duty to continue to render
servi<-*> to the p«ople. I should fee.l
obliged to do this even if I did not like
It. But as a matter of fact. I don't de-
Kcrve any credit, because I do like it. Like
every one else, I have had disagreeable
duties to perform, but when such duties
came I gritted my teeth and did them. I
thoroughly enjoy«d being President and
have heartily enjoyed my activities since
I returned from Africa. I v.-em to the
Saratoga convention and enjoyed that, and
I think I enjoyed it a little more than the
other fellows.
"I am to lecture on what it is to be. an
American citizen, but It isn't so much what
1 say if my deeds will not show that I
have been a worthy American, for then it
would not be worth your while to pay heed
to me.
"As a people wo should be particularly
on our guard against indulgence in moral
and Intellectual intoxication, listening to
and applauding sincere sentiments that we
do not intend to live up to. There is noth
ing worse than Hr service as a substitute
for a deed. In this city of churches you
will understand me when I say that he is
a poor Christian who is only a good citi
zen on Eunday."
"We should first do things for our own
Rakes, but at the same time the effect it
may h»v« on the rest of the world should
be a solemn Ihought with us," said th«
-i-*-a.k<~r "We are not going to accomplish
anything by a mere feeling of exaltation.
We are not going to win out by a sprint.
You have cot to keep at it year In and year
out. d- •• . the humdrum duties. first in the
home, and then In the state. One way to
do It is to treat oast history, not as an ex
cuse for inactivity, hut as a spur to high
action in the present."
Must Make a True Democracy.
There mijrht be government of the people
and for the people, said Mr Roosevelt, but
a difference of opinion existed u.i the pres
ent time a? to a real government by the
"We must moke this country a true
democracy."' ac said. "Wherever the rule
of a claw or caste, rich or poor, has been
substituted for the rule of the people as a
v.-hole. the Republic hap fallen. Let us see
that no such condition comes to our beloved
"But when the people govern themselves
they must remember that they have to
learn to control themselves. Self-control

alike under a form of good government. i
Th<> boss cannot flourish permanently ex- 1
cept when tho people surrender their own j
form of government. If they give up their
government some one ill gladly take the '
job of governing them, but he will not

While I don't like the dope, after all I '
have less contempt for him than I have

Referring ;<-.; <-. government control of the )
larga corporations Mr. Roosevelt said tnat ,
they Ran the creatures of the people, and !
It was t!i»- people ■ duty to see mat tn»y I

to insure honest business methods and with !
sufficient government control to guarantee
that corporation securities represented '

"Events which have happened during the
lah tvo years enow tkat certain men who
have the largest fortunes aiid biggest !
business interests, and the lawyers who i
reprc cent large business Interests, wish to j
see all petty forms of graft übolished, but
they strike hands with th- grafter and .
the political bobs when they are con- ;
vineed that we are determined to carry
the reform into the Ml business Inter
ests." i
Mr. Roosevelt summed tip Ids creed for
quod citizenship by eaylng:
"To live the lives we ought to live it wt

citizenship it is not necessary to have
genius, but what we need i.> the possenalon

The straight ticket men made a great
demonstration here, hissing the sugges
tion of an indorsement and raising the
roof at the mention of a straight ticket.
Mr. LJmberg said that it was the cus
tom for the permanent chairman of a
convention to inflict his view* upon the
delegates, but he did not think the dele
pates cared a rap what the permanent
chairman thought and he did not propose
to make a speech.
Whereupon the delighted delegate?

chairman of the platform committee, re
ceived a noisy greeting as he started to
read the result of his committee" s work.
Then he introduced the following reso
Hoiely for the purpose of ascertaining
the true sentiment of this convention
upqn what is the most effective way of
defeating the reactionary ticket nomi
nated by the Democrats at Rochester:
Resolved. That before proceeding to
make nomination? the convention shHll
debate whether to nominate a straight
Independence League ticket or to indorse
the Republican ticßet.
The straight ticket men thought they
saw in this some sort of a trap and
tried to defeat it, but the chairman de
clared the resolution carried. He then
said h r - was willing to entertain a mo
tion that a straight ticket be named or
on*' for the indorsement of the Republi
can ticket, he did not care which one
came first.
James A Allen was on his feet in an
instant, and offered a resolution for a
straight ticket.
Mr. Allen said he was shocked to think
that the Independence League should
thing of indorsing the. Republican
ticket. "And in saying this," he added,
"I would not want to be taken as ex
pressly or Impliedly saying one word in
behalf of that notorious band which met
at Rochester and foisted a ticket of
fraud and deception upon the people of
this state. We all know what Murphy
ism and Tammany Hall mean, but at
the same time I don't believe the "Black
Horsp Cavalry" is any better than Tam
many Hall."
True to its traditions, the opening of
the convention in the afternoon waa
more than an hour after the scheduled
time. The feature of the afternoon was
the speech of Alfred J. Boulton. of
Kings County, as temporary chairman.
He declared that the corporate inter
ests, failing to control the Republican
convention at Saratoga, had gone to
Rochester and captured the Democratic
convention absolutely. The ticket and
platform decided on at Rochester were
not such as to command the support of
the independent voters, he said. Mr.
Roosevelt, he said, would be anxious to
see that a comprehensive direct primary
law was passed, whil« on the other hand
Charles F. Murphy would not wish to
see such a measure adopted.
The names of Mr. Stimson. Mr. Roose
velt and Governor Hughes were re
ceived with applause.
Th' 1 words 'state-wide primaries" in
tht- Democratic piatform do not mean
anything, Mr. Boulton said. If a broad
measure was passed Mr. Murphy would
not last any time as leader, he declared,
and added.
Now, if we turn to the Republican party,
don't you think that Roosevelt, with all hip
faults, would be the overwhelming choice
of the Republicans, the rank and file of th*
Republican party of this state for leader?
Wouldn't it be in the interest of Mr. Roose
velt to push direct primaries? (Applause.)
Wouldn't It be in the interest of Mr.
Stimson and every man selected on that
ticket to favor and do everything they can
to have the direct primary enacted? And
wouldn't it be tor the interests of every
man on the state ticket selected at Roches
ter to oppose any system of direct prima
ries or any system of any kind that would
take the power away from the bosses?
Now, let ut be practical; let us consider
those things. Let us consider the question
of whether in this great campaign we are
going to hut- up solidly against corruption
or whether we are going to divide and scat
ter our forceß. I feel confident that when
the issues of this campaign are presented
to the great Democratic, voters of this
state — I mean Democratic in the broad
sense— there will be only one answer to
that appeal. namely, that they will line
up stolidly in opposition to the ticket rep
resenting the- interests that was selected
by Mr. Murphy, acting as agent of those
interests at Rochester.
If they consider their own best interests,
there isn't any question that that is what
they will do. Then it does seem to me that
it is for the delegates of this convention to
give the people of this state an opportunity
of voting, so that every vote that Is ca»t
In opposition to that Rochester ticket will
count as one vote in opposition to that

Crowd Cheers as Head cf Ticket
Praises Nominee for Congress.
First Speech of Campaign at
Congress Convention Makes
Strong Impression.
In his first public appearance since hl»
official notification. Henry L- Stinwon last
night captured the Congress convention of
the 17th District, which had met to nor
n! mate William 8. Bennet. who was the
strongest rival candidate for the Republi
can nomination for Governor at Saratoga.
The candidate for Governor entered the
! convention hall of the Republican Club or
I the 23d Assembly District Just as Congress
man Rennet had concluded his speech ac
! cepting the renominatlon. He was heartily
i cheered as he came in. but his first words
' changed the friendly greeting into a very
i tumult of acclamation.
"I did not come here to make a campaign
: speech." lie began, "but I could not refrain
; from coming to express my tribute of ap
i preciation and affection to the man you
| have renominated here to-night."
The audience 1 rose as one man. moved by
! the evident sincerity of the speaker, ana
! cheer upon cheer went up. The cheers
: were interrupted by cries of "What's the
'matter with Bennet?" and "What's the
'< matter with Sttmson?" and the answers
i were all very satisfactory all around.
"This union of sentiment augurs very
; well for the campaign." continued Mr.
Stlmson. "If we stand together like this
throughout the tight we will surely stand
• together all rignt on the evening of No
' vember 8."
Progressive Social Legislation.
After paying a special tribute to Con
| gressmen's work on the question of immi
i gration, Mr. Stimson referred to the <•«
. tablishment by Governor Roches of a
labor bureau which works along the same
line- as the federal immigration bureau.
"Both should work together." he added,
i "and If the Republican party Is successful.
as it appears certatn that it will be. they
shall work together for the betterment of
life in the state and nation.
"The issue* at bottom are very similar.
*in both cases it is progress again-- re
'■ action. The party in the state as in th©
nation stands for human welfare above all
things. No better investment of the states
' funds can be made than in furthering pro
gressive social legislation. That is the
gr*»at issue, the one we are confronting.
"So long as the money of the "ate i?
1 not wasted, so long a.s it Is spent honestly.
It cannot be better emnloye/1 than in fur
i thering the broad constructive policies in
augurated by Governor Hughes."
Each reference to Governor Hughes was
punctuated by applause, and the governor
ye.. 59th to 60th
ship candidate closed with a promts* that j
so far as he was able He would aid In th-»
election of the choice at the convention . i
for Congressman.
Prom the very first the convention was
harmonious, and the keynote was that ail
should work together for the success or
the ticket. Kinnabury Foster, -who placed
Congressman Dennet In nomination at
Saratoga, proposed htm U« nlsht as to*
candidate. ll© referred to the nsjßt they
had put up for Congressman Rennet
against "our candidate for the governor
ship." and he Insisted on the worda, • our
•"Wa gave them a fight for two days an«
nights." he continued, "against our can*,
date, and bis sponsor vras the greatest
American citizen, probably the most oat*.
ble man in the world to-day, our friend
Colonel Roosevelt. It was a real conven
tion, and we had a fair show. but other
considerations prevailed, and so va ar«
here to nominate the nam» man we nomi
nated there, and to suppor*. him for Con
gress, and to support every man on th*
state ticket. "
Besides the delegate* from the various
districts, there ■>•■■ tresent numerous resi
dents of the neighborhood, and nntabl*
among them were the members of General
Joe Wheeler Camp. S9. of Spirilsh War
Veteran?, most of whom are members of
tt>f club and are o.it working tor the ii<*k«.
Chairman Clinch, in notify tnar Oorgres*
man Benne.t of his renomrnatton. sai<! to
rim: 'You have been elected to represent
the 17th District." and the ("or.gr*! saraaa
accepted the chairman* word for It.
Representative Attendance.
Congressman Bennet expressed "r.:a ap
preciation of the fact that evcrr Olesat*
at Saratoga from the district had voted for
him and added that this mad* it obligatory
for them to work all the harder for Henry
L. Stimson and every other man or. th»
ticket chosen at Saratoga. Referring to
Mr. Stimson' s splendid record as United
States District Attorney. congressman
Bennet added: "He b» an able, upright and
conscientious man. He ougir to b*. and h<»
will te elected Governor of N«w Yoris
"^Congressman J. Van \>c£ten Olcott aaid;
he was about "> die as an officeholder, but
was ver--- much alive as an active Republi
can worker. He utrongly indorsed Con
gressman Bennet. and of the candidate lor
Governor he said: "How can any man sar
a word acainet Uim? Look at his record.
"Our opponents say he is * RooseveltiaU
product. Thank God. he ts! They say
Itoosevelt i? the boss. Well, my answer ij
that I would rather "Ike Ro«>»*'.-e|' as a
bow than tak- Charley Murphy."
Mr. Olcott told the convention that Will
iam M. Bennett would b*> elected to replace
him. "He will be elected for many rea
sons." ho concluded, "and on*- is that I will
work for him with all my might."
Henry S. Green, president of th* Will

work for the nomination of Bonnet as G<'V
