British Socialist Leader 8ays
Jlooscveltlsm Will Fizzle
SIX WEEKS OBSERVATIONS
Snys Progressives He Met on
His Travels Agreed the
Forces Hadn't Ballicd.
James Kelr Hardie, Socialist leader
of the I-ahor party in the -British Houm
of Commons, has just returned from a
MrrniiotjA six weeks speechraaklnit cam
lalKn for the Socialist party in the Weat,
thoroughly convinced from his obaer
ntioni, ho says, that Rooseveltlsm is
eoinK to flwtle out bodily" and that Dr
Wilnon is ffoinp; to be the first man in
the rc. He said?
"I made ita point totallc with the Pro
cri'Miv loaders in every town and city
that I visited. In response to my state
mcnt that what I had seen in my travels
through the country led me to bollove
that Roosevelt Ism seemed to be fizzling
out, his own men agrepd that it was so.
The movement depended altogether on
the personality of Theodore Roosevelt
and that has not proved strong enough.
The forces haven't milled as he thought
"It hai nlways seemed to me that such
a movement had to go with a rush or go
under completely. Prom my experience
in politics, Roosevelt will continue to lose
Mrength from now on. Why? Because
fslth In his personality has been rudely
hakrn. There was a time when the
Republican organization and the papers
wrre all w4th him. The average man
thn thought that he was a demigod
Now the average man finds that he gets j
hoarse like other people and that- he
calls folks liars.
"The campaign was started with the
Impression that Roosevelt would take a
lot of votes from the Socialist party, but
rou will find that he won't get the rote of
a single real socialist. The situation in
the States is too serious for a third party.
ThTe Is no room for it. It is utterly im
possible for it to win. Roosevelt's sup
porters remind mo of the story of the
pot of gold at Uie end of the rainbow. The
more the lvy ran after it the further he
pot away.lrom It.
"When I reached St. Louis and asked
about the situation the Progressives
slid, 'Roosoveltlsm isn't strong here, but
you'll find it in Kansas City.' And when
I tfnt to Kansas City they said. "There's
no excitement here, but wait until you
Kt to Denver, and then you'll find real
Roosevelt enthusiasm.' But I didn't see
It in Denver. However, they assured me
that th Mecca for Rooseveltism was on
he Pacific coast. I didn't go there, so
I don't know whether I would have found
it or not. But I do know that the workin g
rlaes will not. support Roosevelt. In
all the Mx weeks that I was away I found
only one trade union official who said
that h was supporting him."
Mr Hardle admitted that he had' no
lovo for the Colonel, whom he once de
nounced in Parliament for his anti
Key pi inn speech at a banquet in the city
rf London after bis return'from his Afri
can hunting trip, but he said he tried to
look into tho Roosevelt movement with
a unbiassed mind as possible and didn't,
"-rrnit hit- lack of affection for the Colonel
to interfere with his judgments
Nowhere, ho said, did he find that Roose
iclnsra is attracting any measure of
i-upport from the working class and the
only folk backing the Progressive party
are mainly "well meaning, middle class
lople." He said he did riot question
their sincerity in the least, but he felt
a certain element, or puy -at the dis
illiiFionnvnt ahead of them." He nre
dieted that before the Congressional
l-rtionR two years hence "the Bull Moose
party will have disappeared and the old
element in the Republican party will
again be supreme.
Asked who he thinks will be elected
President. Mr. Hardie replied:
"Ihe universal opinion is that Wilson
will easily he first In the race, and what
everybody savs is probably rlaht. '
"And what do you think of Dr. Wilson?"
Mr. Hardie slowly and solemnly took
a long and very satisfactory puff on his
"He seems to be a very decent sort,"
"The power behind the throne in this
country," he continued, "Is the trusts.
No matter who is elected they do Just
what the trusts allow them to do. That
is the serious fact of the situation tn tho
An admirer of Dr. Wilson suggested
that Dr. Wilson "was a college man and
perhaps wouldn't" but before he finished
Mr. Hardie said: 1
"There is no reason why a college man
shouldn't have as much grit as anybody."
While on his campaign trip for the
Socialists Mr. Hardie visited thirty of
the leading Industrial centres in New
York, Massachusotts, Ohio, Illinois, Ken
tucky and Colorado.
He said that there has been a consider
able improvement of wages and a reduc
tion in working hours and the trade
union and the Socialist movements have
developed at a perfectly wonderful rate.
"Socialism Is growing among the trades
unions," he said. "In the mining districts
it is practically solid. The reason for
tliat is easy to understand because the
miners have been tho worst hit by capital.
I spent a day in a mining camp In Colorado
and found the conditions socially and
financially bad. Some of the miners
C"l 11 ,R0, 11.75 and S3 a day. No Scotch
man would work for 'the wages miners
cet in south Colorado."
Mr Hardie declared that the Mo
Namnras and their work have forced
thinking trades unionists to face tho
"They realize," he said, "that violence
loin't pav and are now turning their
attention to politics In order to get hold
f i ho machinery of the country."
Hih observations led him to believe.
" id, that conditions have Improved
i along the lino in this country excepting
t h caso of the miners and textile oper
' "rs. Trade unionists are turning to
-o'-iaiiKni. he said, and Samuel Gompers,
wnli whom ho had a talk, "stands alone
m his opposition to slocialism." Gom
P'wk'h opposition, Mr. Hardie explained,
"was for personal reasons."
"I predict now," he said, "that this time
four years from now, organized unions
nnd the Socialist party will be working
together for the election of a President.
Heretofore they have had an apparently
irreconcilable attitude. fow you'll find
hat tvi per cent, of the candidates in the
s iulist party are trade unionists."
In dincusHing the home rule movement
Mr Hurdle said that the Ulster opposition
wnfc largely "bluff engineered by re
JiKions higots nnd landed interests which
feared what the result might be upon
'heir pockets when home rule became

FREED AFTER VAIN SEARCH
Husband Tells Court of Her Let

A huslvind's story of a fruitless search
for his wife nftcr she had written that
she would not return to him nnd It
would do no good to loolc for her was
told yesterday to Supreme Court Justice
Glegerlch, who granted a decree of dl
vorce to William Meyer from Mrs. Mario
Meyer. The court found that she had
eloped with one Rudolph Mondet and
Bone to liuen'os Ay res.
Meyer said that on December 20, 1911,
he returned from his office and found
that his wife had left their homo at 501
Kast. Klghty-thlrd street. He went to

Meyer notified that he then started
out tn hunt for his wife. He had heard
her speak frequently of n woman
named "Johanna," nnd be nsked many of
bis wife's friends where Johanna lived.
Ho found out that her home was near
Klchty-slxth street. For days Meyer
said he walked through Klghty-slxth
street from Central Park tn Mist River

no one who could tell him anything
Meyer sold that on his trips he w.m

Of theelghteen Republicans whoso terms
III expire on March 3. 1013, about eleven
are reasonably certain of reeloction or
at least are likely to be succeeded by Re
publicans. The fate of seven. Republi
can members of the Senate Is admittedly
doubtful. This would seem to iya prom
ising for tho Democrats on the basis or
the present membership, since they need
only six more to control. But as a mat
ter of fact the Democrats have already
lost one seat as tho result of tho Maine
election, so that In reality they are con
fronted with the necessity of winning
seven seats. Obadiah- Gardner is tho
Democratic Senator from Maine who
has lost out. Of the twelve other Demo
cratic Senators who are up for reelection
all seem reasonably safe except Clarence
W.Watson of West Virginia and possibly
Robert L. Owen of Oklahoma. The Bull
Moosers and the regular Republicans are
pulling together on the State ticket in
West Virginia and there is a fair prospect
of West Virginia going Republican so far
as the local offices are concerned.
Of the eighteen Republican Senators
whose terms will expire with this Con
gress one each comes from the Stuto-i
of Idaho, Oregon, Now Jersoy. Nebraska,
Michigan, Wyoming and Rhodo Island
and two from Illinois.
Senator William E. Borah of Idaho Is
reasonably oertaln of reelection. Oregon
will probably send a Republican to the
Senate to succeed Jonathan Bourne,
who ha joined tho national Progres
sive party. Senator Frank O. Brlggs of
New Jersey, if present signs nre read
aright, Is likely to be succeeded by a
Democrat. Nebraska will probably send
a Democrat as the successor of Norris
Brown, Senator Henry K. Burnham of
New Hampshire, Republican, will doubt
less succeed himseir. Winthrop Murray
Crane of Massachusetts also may be
succeeded by a Republican. Senator
Shelby M. Cullom of Illinois was defeated
in the primary, while his colleague, Mr.
Lorimcr, was deprived of his seat. Owing
to the troubled state of politics in .Illinois
the outcome of the election in that State
is very much in doubt. It is a tossup
whether regular Republicans, Demo
crats or Progressives will capture the
two Illinois seats in the Sonate,
Senator Charles Curtis of Kansas, a
regular Republican, will bo succeeded
by Gov, W. L. Stubbs, a Progressive
Republican, Senator Joseph M. Dixon
of Montana, elected ns Republican, now
chairman of tho Progressive Nntinnal
Committee, will be succeeded by either
