and practically declared thai the time
whs at hand when the "denunciatione"
of the Progressives must .ease and -when
the nation will demand focta.
H" had not the slightest doubt, h"
said, that the Republican party would
win In the November election**.
The President made one of the moat
aggressive speeches he has ever deliv?
ered. He made it clear to his hearers
that he had grown impatient of the at?
tack"' that have been made on the Re?
publican party and on his administra?
tion in the last few years. He declared
that the old lino Republicans were pro?
gressiv?- enough to adopt all the legis?
lation that progress demanded, but .--aid
that he was not the 8ort of man to
promise t?> 'make a heaven on ?arth"
or to refi.rtn Hie world in a day.
Three Reasons for Success.
Hf said that in his mind there were
three reasons why the party should be
returned t?> power n^xt November. One
was th?tg it ha?! "done reasonably and
fairly well'' in its administration of th?
government in the last tew years and
deserved i h?- continued conHdeme of
th. country; the second was that it
was "progressing, and would put in
operation all the necessary legislation
that is progr.ssive." and the third ??<
that the party was 'not ? hasing chi?
meras and ii"t unsettling the founda
tions ??i government merely to indulge
in the fancies of bone."
