tor Root IJ wa9 a dellberate, loplcal re
Tietr of the beneflte of the Republican
pollcles ln general and tlie protectlve
tarilT ln partlcular. He was frequently
Jnterrupted by aprlause as he 6poke of
the Increased value of productions, wages
and raw materlals whlch had come from
the tlme the protectlve tariff syst.-m was
aj-plled under President McKlnley to the
rresenr tlme under President Taft.
'lt took Job Hedges, the Republican
Boml_ee for <>overnor, however, to eapt
ve the heterogeneoua audlence body and
joul wlth an eplgrammatlo broadside ln
sgrtpersed wlth shrewd eharrishootlng.
Droller'os and stralght-from-the-shoulder
ftatements followed each other ln such a
b*w_derlng and altogether captlvatlng
fashion that Ihe audlence was wlth him
from ths start, and an inclplent dlversion
oa the part of Roosevelt adherents?
young men. for the most part?who occu
pied seats ln the centre of the hall, was
pfomjitly nlpped by Mr. Hedge?
There was a llttle flurry at the very be
glnning which showed where the trouble
lay. When Samuel Strassbourger, for
msrly Tax Collecter, was lntroduclng
Ssnator Root, he mentloned the nnme of
the thlrd term candidate. A volley of
handclapplng broke out on the Instant.
f?on to be drowned by ealln of "Slt
downT and "Put them out'" When the
tum.lt had subsided, Mr. Strassbourger
Introduced Senator Root as "the greatest
Amerloar, livlng."
Seemingly Expected.
At the beglnnlnaj th.-r- w?s a slight
tendency to lnterrupt Senator Root. and
ln general an air of expectancy through
the hall, as though every one looked for
raaanlhlnff unusual to happen. The first
taterraptlon <-ame from a tall man wlth a

a man "_J*"***ad on the sawdust t>trewn

after tl.e latter incident. and tinally re
marked: "When you get through watch

Btandlng on a tariff-for-revenue-only
plai;k I will proceed.''
Senator Root sald:

have great respect?and I am glad to
perceive that some of you have, for he
fs an honest a.id upright Amerlcan?Mr.
WUson says that the Republican party
got us lnto oui present trouble by means
of the protectlve tariu, and he proposes
to get us out by destroylng the protectlve
tariff and substituting for lt a tariff for
fevenue only, wlthout any protectlon for
American industry and labor.
I wtoh you to examine with me for a
few mlnutes the trcuble that we are ln.
Tba theory of a protectlve tariff Ib that
by equaliilng the cost of productlon be
tireen our own country and foreign coun
tries, we may be able to produce for our
own uae, the thlngs that we need and pay
pur hlgher wages, and at the same time
bell the thlngs we produce.
High*st Wages in World.
Now, under th* tariff roanufacture ha*

been done to enoourage manufacture,
fiaa lt not? And, mark. I mentton thla
bot because of love for the manufacturer
but because I believe lt to be for the
benefit of every Amerlcan. (Applause.)
Itsten to what has been done, according
lo __a census of MOO and 1810. The capital
lnvested ln manufacture has Increased In
those ten years from $8.975,000.000 to $!&.
4B.O0O.i>il (Applau-e.) The wages and
the salaries r?ald ln manufacture have In
cr?a?ed from $2,730.oOO,000 to $4,365,000,000?

tha enormous sum of over $4,000,000,000 of
the highest wages, by and large. pald
anywhere ln the world or ever pald any
where In the world.
Products of manufacture have Increased
from $13,004,000,000 to $30.PT2,000,000. I'.aw
tnaterialH used have Increased from $?;,
rt.aoo.OOO to $12,141.000,0OO, and you will

Cheers for Hedgea.
Mr. Hedges, who followed Senator Root,
was greeted wlth prolonged iheers. A
volce from the gallery exclaimed: "oii.

"Maybe you thlnk you're nominated,"
sald Mr. Hedges, lookin* upward. "It Ib

"N*cw, what has that rli?tingulshed nd

It went into oflice proclalmlnaT that the

elxteen years in Albany. and they did

administration at Albany, which has been
unfair, not frank; that has reversed some

Written and Illus
trated by
(of "1 lllicll").
Mr. Furniss has met and sketched many of the earth's
great, but he believes that Edison is the greatest of them ali.
And when you read his chatty and delightful article and see
his pictures of Edison in many moods you can hardly fail to
agree with him.
LISTEN to thi?- bit ol praise. and you may under
Ittnd some of tlie reasoiis for the artist's opinion:
He statids nmre high pressure. works hanlcr. aad iccont*
plithea more than any other man 1ms eve* done throuch*
out the liistnry of tlie tmtrerae. His staff nnmbers five
thruisarul. yet tbe mainspring of the arhole "f tlie vflgj COB
crrn is Edison himaelf. Hlt physical vigor and capacity
for endflrancc are atinply incredible. \ couple of years igo

Edison'l own detinition of *_;enius is "one per cent
inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiratioii,'' and
after reading thi-s article you will understand why.
