The colonel walked ai roaa the front ltngth of tha liftle platform. striding n-ith a.l his oMttme trigor. Ortainly there wae no deCTOB-M "if power in his walk, and the crowd. which had been cheering madly since thf llash outalde gave warning of hls approach. broke out in a redonbled roar. Roosevelt smiled. He looked out across the Garden with a welcome, toothsome smile for all; then he brought his gazo around to th.' platform, then to thc lloor just tielow him. Here he bestowed those personal greetings to individuaia whom he ret ognixed in the crowd. both on platform and floor, which are so well known. Nothing in that wild welcome es caped him. He took its full fotce and then he took its fragments, and to both crowd and IndividualB he returned his thanka by smile and greeting. Aiter standing w.thuut a move for Lhree mlnutes he then seemed to tlre a Uttle. The smile left hls face, and he looked as if he would llke to have the crowd Btop. At the end of six mlnutes some one thought of stamping hls feet, and a rumbling roar added a thunderlng diapaeon to the shriller welcome of the volces. That brought thc smile bach lo the oolonel's face. Dlxon, Hotchkiss. Straus and John A Snappy Seasoning It ia necessary to the full enjoyment of a dinner.

He enuneiated every eyllable slowly and dlBtlnctly, without oratorbal ef? fect and without that high Iremolo that used to spread paroxyt-ms of laughter throughout his audiences. lt was plain that he was making per? haps the most deliberate, the most , iir'-ful and the most even tautperad ftpeech of liis career. The whlte li-rht of the calolum whbh was held on hlm throughout his speech showed plainly that lt was an effort for him. but whether an effort because of his evl dent represslon of hia oldtime vigorous platform method or because of hls weakness it was hard to dlstlngulsh.

To Fight Koaailized Wrong. We care for facta and not for for mulaa. We care for deeda and not for words. We recogn;ze no aacred right of oppreasion. We recogmze no divine right to work injustice. We stand for the Constitution. We recognize tbat one of its most usefui functions is the protection of property. But we will not consent to make of the Constitution a fet;ch for the protection of foasilized wrong. We call the attention of those who thus interpret it to the fact that in that great inst.-.*ner.t of .ustice life and icerty are put on a full level with prop -rtv, indeed, are enutnerated ahead of it ,n the order of their importance. We stand for an upnght judiciary. But where the judges claim the right to make our laws by finally interpreting them, by finally deciding whether or not we have the power to make them, then we claim the right ourselves to exer cise that power. u,. foi bl i anj m< n, no matter what ,_,, , offlclal poaltion may be, to uaurpj the righl which i- oura the rlght which ,. ._,. | w .? r.- ognlse m nelther courl ii", I'ongrees. nor Prealdent. any dlvine righl to overrld. the arlll of th ,?.,|.! expressed wU orderl] fashlon snd through thi forms \\ ?

Then. having taken these first steps. we shall see more clearly how to walk still further with a bolder stride. We do not intend to attempt the impossible.
