Controaed from first psge.
An lnstance of thls, he turnea to hls
well known fnlgetto ln alnvost h.s first
words, when he addressed hlmaelf to
the audlence:

Of course. it brought yell8 of delight
from the Yonkers people, and the whole
erowd enjoyed lt.
The colonel contlnued with hls speech
apparently without much effort. He
seemed to be able to speak more eaBlly
than he did on Wedneaday night, and
hls gestures, all with his left arm, had
all the Rooseveltlan vlgor. His right
arm hung llmply by his side, however,
nnd he was careful always to
"favor" it.
It was more of a polltical Bpoech
than hls prevlous address, moreover,
and it waa noticaabla that before the
end of lt there were B scattering few
who made their way out, apparently
aaUafled with having seen the colone.

Pleasure to Speak for Straua.

foi he ahowed what ?n? a prlme necesait>
in that poaition that la tha power of
broad aympathy with all our people; the
determinatlon to do luatlce to blg men
nnd small men alike and then, not mere?
ly the determinatlon to do justice, but the
aympathy that enabled him tO do Justice.
He never Blnched from accepting any
responsibliity. he n< rei feered to under
take any duty, however, dlsagroeable, and
yt he flhoweil the broadeet human char

was the wllling too! of Tammany at the

when General Bragg, pointlng to th?

what The New Vork World" aald of lt
ln Ita issiie of Auril 21. 1891:
The Legialatara which ended its s?s<

Mr. Sulzer says that if elected he wlll

the flist thing Tilden did in his campalga

Mr. Sulzer claims that he ls an advo

v.ui what klnd of an advocate he la. ln
1910, after the election of Governor Dlx,
at fl dlnner of the Tammany Speakers'

Think what tl.is would mean if Sulaer
