In his dictated reply toitho Democratic
nominee. He said:

Governor: 'I. have eeen the, patient He

perience 0 Gow Wilson, arise with
astonishment 'and delight 'nnd declare
ij-thal he never felt better In his life,
nnd that he no longer had even the
slightest apprehension as to the conduct
of good Mr. Wilson. No wonder that
Mr. Wilson was able to mention In
his Madison Square Garden speech with
modest pride that the gentlemen In
Wall Street are smiling nnd compla
cent' because of their hopo for his
election, and tliat they ure betting heav
ily on him although I doubt If any
moderate Intelligent Wall , Street man
actually gave the odds which Mr. Wil
son's sentiment prompts him to be
lieve they gave."
Outlining the course which the !'ro
rresslves propose to pursue Col. Hoose-
velt said;
fftis; anti-trust law will remain on the
ok."!.-and It mil be strengthened by
prohibiting agreement' to divide terri
tory or limit output, by prohibiting a
refusal to sell to customers who buy
from business rrvuls, I y prohibiting the
rcustom of selling below cost in certain
' places while maintaining higher prices
In other areas, iy prohibiting the use
of the power of transportation to uld
or Injure special business concerns
in short by prohtbitlrg these and all
other unfair trade practice. The Inter
state Industrial Comnil-wlon will give us
nn elTlcient Instrument for seeing that
the law Is 1 a riled out in letter and
spirit and for effectively, punishing not
only cery corporation but every In-
.'dividual who violates. th provisions of
the- law. '
"The facts given above emphnslze
the differences between the professions
.of the Progressive party und the pro
,-.jfessIons of Its opponents between the
practises Of the men whonre candidates
on the Progressive platform as com
pared with the practices of the two old
parties. I'mler these circumstances it
Is no wonder that the great majority
of the trust magnates are supporting
one or the other of the two old parties.
"Organizations like the Standard OH,
I the sugar trust and the tobacco trust
will support either. of 'the, two old par
ties with which they think the best
fight can be made ugalnst the Progres
sive party, for they know well that It Is
the IroBresslvp party alone whose" pro
gramme they have to 'fear.
"The testimony before the Senatorial
committee showed not only the bitter
animosity of the Standard Oil Company
to the Progressive party, but showed
...nlan that the lending men In the Steel
'trust had contributed toward support
ing Mr. Taft and that the president of
the Harvester trust had been similarly
' supporting Mr. Wilson, So far as 1
know, but one man connected with
cither trust Is supporting the Progres
sive ticket which casts a rather comic
' light on" Mr. Wilson's statement, which
he made some weeks ago, but which he
has been compelled to abandon, that
these trirets ere In their 'thought' or
'in a hallelujah chorus, supporting the
1'rogrcnslve ticket."
"Mr. Wilson has explicitly stated that
tho problem of the trusts Is primarily
a problem for tho States. On July C
last, for Instuncc, he said: 'It 1,4 the
government of tho States upd not tlie
Federal Government which must de
termine ttys ultimate basis and charac
ter of government,' and In his Inter-
view with Mr. Needrnrm In tho Outlook
(Vol. XCV1JI., 1911), 'It Is tho States

"There was ample opportunity for
Gov. Wilson to act either by securing
legislative action or by, 'proceeding
ugalust the trusts without1 the Inter
vention of the Legislature. Section 4
of the New Jersey corporation net pro
vides: 'The charter of every corporation
or any supplement thereto or any
amendment thereof shall be subject to
alteration, suspension or repeal In. the
discretion of the,, Legislature; and' the
Legislature may at pleasure dissolve

statute declares to be a misdemeanor.
Mr. Wilson has been Governor for
twenty-two months. He now says that
he wishes to proceed against the direc
tors and managers of these trusts Indl
vldually. He has, and for twenty-two
months has had, as Governor of New
Jersey, ample opportunity und every
possible meuns for thus proceeding
against them and for over a year has
hnd the decision of the Supreme Court
as warranty for such procedure, but he
has never lifted his finger to take It.
"He has had the amplest opportunity
nnd he has himself declared It was his
duty to proceed against these trusts by
legislative act. The Legislature of New
Jersey of 1911 stood one house Repub
lican and one house Democratic. ThaC
of 1912 was Republican In both
branches, but Mr. Wilson, In speeches
at Trenton on May & last and In Cam
den on May 18 last explicitly stated
that the Legislature was .'docile,' that
'the Legislature moved -forward wlth
zest,', that varltrtis reform acts which
he, advocated pas;ed the Legislature
with refreshing ease, though one house
was! Democratic 'and the other' Repub
lican.' Yet from th,e?) 'docile' legislative
bodies which ''moved forward with zest'
nnd which he praises-for, moving with
such refreshing and surprising ease, he
never, by so much .an a Word,- endeav
ored tokget the legislation about the
trusts which In' had staled was neces
wary. Yet members of both parties,
when Mr. Wilson failed to give them a
ltad. themselves endeavored to secure
the necessary trust legislation. The Re
publican Senator, Mr. Colgate, Intro
duced u bill, No. 103. to investigate the
New Jersey trust laws; the Democratic
Assemblyman. Mr. Donnelly, Introduced
several bills, among them one. No. ICS,
entitled 'The New Jersey Anti-Trust
bill.' Mr. Wilson had declined to give
the Legislature a lead In this matter,
and when these members of the LeaIs
lature gave htm a lead he still declined
to lift h ringer In their aid. And nat
urally. In view of this attitude of pas
slve opposition on his part, the I.fglsla
ture failed to act. ,
"Through Senator Beverldge and on
the suggestion of one of the private cltl
lens of the counttjy, Mr. Heaty, a head
waiter in one or our noteis, 1 asitea Air,
Wilson certain questions, us follows:
"'1. Ik It not a fact that the laws of
the State under which h. corporation s
organized prescribe Its power!
, "'2. Are not all the powers of Stand
ard oil and similar monopolies con
ferred by the laws of New Jersey?
" '3. Could not these powers have
been curtailed by amendments to the
New .Jersey laws?
4. Why has not Mr. Wilson, as
Governor of New Jersey, recommended
such amendments?'
"In my Chicago speech I had already
pointed out the statute under which he
could act personally. In responso to
these questions Mr. Wilson telegraphed
to one of his supporters as follows;
'"I authorize you to tiny that the Re
publican majority In the Legislature
made a revision of the corporation laws
Impossible, and no New Jersey official
could prosecute or propose a dlssolu
tlon for breach of Federal statutes.'
"This Is no answer nt nil. I have
shown above that Mr. Wilson himself
stated that the Legislature did with
surprising ease whut he asked and that
Republican und Democratic members
actually Introduced bills such as were
demanded by Mr. Wilson's explicit
"The New .Jersey. Legislature of 1911
stood: House, 42 Democrats and 18 Re
publicans; Senate. It Republicans and
10 Democrats. There was thui only
one Republican majority against him In
the Senate and I have shown above that
one Republican Senator, Mr. Colgate,
actually Introduced an anti-trust bill,
So that even If he hnd not been followed
by another Republican Mr, Wilson huda
clear majority In both houses If he had
chosen to net. Moreover, It was his
clear duly to try to i,et action In any
event. In the tire Legislature there
wus no opponent of trust legislation
who possessed one one-thousandth part
of the Influence and control which,,
while 1 was President, was exercised by
Senator Aldrlch In tho Senate nnd
Speaker Cannon In the Hquse. nut I
r.'over made any exciibes, and by u suc
cession of the hardest kind of hammer
ing tights 1 forced through Congress a
mass of vitally Important trust and
corporation legislation: and yet, under
Infinitely more favorable conditions und
with nn Infinitely easier task Mr. Wilson
did not even attempt to get any action."
"As to tho rest of Mr. Wilson's an
swer, It Is no unswer at nil. I did not
ask why he fnlled to act under tho
I'Yderal antt-trust law, I asked why
he waited to 'net under' tho specified
provision of the New Jersey nntl-trunt

those who touch the sources of strength

that tills the fields and builds the cities'
and not for the sake of special groups

In addition to the address which Wood-
row Wilson delivered last night by proxy
at Democratic meetings all over the coun
try, he gave this declaration to the elec
torate at large:
The issue is now clearly made up and
goes to the iieople. I. for one, do not doubt
the verdict. The voiera must make one or
another.of three choices.. First, Intrust
t be Government to the regular Itepubliran
partv again, which ulways leglns a enm
palgn with promises of action, and then
always, at the end, draws back and whtus
agalust' change, dreading to attempt any
thing at all, for rear It should not satisfy
those who control credit and whom It has
so long permitted to art as tnifctee tor the
people in every matter or policy.
Second, place the guidance of their affairs
In the hand of men who are searching about
for some new way In which to perform old
duties, all along plain and Imperative,
which can easily be iwrrormed without
the Intention of new methods; for example,
without shifting the whole euergv and
Initiative of the law to the executive branch
or the (lovemment.
Third, go forward, without postpone
ment or experiment or confusion, to effect
the reforms which the whole country waits
for, and which all parties piofess to believe
necessary, through the Instrumentality of a
great established and undivided party,
clear and explicit as to its purposes, willing
to effect them by the ordinary process of
legislation, willing to be guided by l lie. com
mon counsel of the nation as a whole, the
plain people with the rest, regardful of every
Interest, the little as well as the big; become
contfected with every interest by tynipatliy
and comprehension, anil toherly deter
mined to obey the voice of thoughtful men
everywhere by a carefully considered
course of moderate yet courageous reform.
The wise statement of tOe choices is a pre
diction. We shall trust ourselves und let

J.ono. Uiun'ch, N. J., Nov. 2. Long
Brunch gave Gov. Woodrow Wilson a rnus
ingreception at the Lyceum to-night. The
meeting was held under the uuspioes nf
the Wilson and Marshall Club und Sen
ator John W, Slocum presided, Two
thousand men, women und children
packed the building und hundreds were
unable to get in.
The Governor Urst made a plea for u

ernor was not yet ended und he expected
to bring ubotit many reforms before
leaving the State House ut Trenton lie
also, praised Congressman, Thomas J.
Scully,, who is up for reelection, anil
had a good word to say for Congrexnuiuu
William Hughes, the candidate for United

Gov. Wilson said in part :

could mvseir get the Presidency, niovlded
1 would take it, and had too many different
factors In Hie two houses, I would decline
to take it I cannot Imagine anything
that would weur the heart of a man more
thau that. I do not know what 1 might be
tempted to suy If I were put lu a position
like that, I am sure thut the people of New

to it that there is a Democratic nuijoilly

Klulay wus shot? In the Inst smccIi Mr.
McKlnley mude before, ho was stricken
down he pleaded with the eoplo of the
1'ulted States to overromu tho resistance
of the Senate. This William McKlnley left
us his legacy to the American people,
1 want the people of New Jeisey lo con
sider this proposition: Don't vote lo huve
u Democratic President simply hecauho you
are generous enough lo believe in your own
Governor simply to huve a niun from New
Jersey President. That Is not patriotism;
thut Is not right. The thing in do Is to
make up your mind whether you want the
people ot the t'nlted States to have 11
Instrument In their hands through which
they can have the reforms this country
has waited for and can wait for no longer
Are we going to dam this tide up still
longer? Are we going to make It Im
possible for any reform? Do you suppose
the men who lesd the Democratic party
do not know what would happen to them
If Iher broke their promises? If yon trust
the Democratic party now and It betrays
you, you should never trust, it aaln.
All that 1 nave oeen lor you is a spoiusni.
I Have simply followed you. Many men
have refused to come upon a platform for
fear of the spotlight, but it Is a whltpllght,
It Is not yellow. There Is no sensationalism
to it. It Is slmpy a white light, but It has
got to bore out from the Inside and not from
the outside.

Gov. Wilson spent tho greater part of
yesterday, in New York. Ho arrived
early in the tnornitig from Rochester.
"I didn't go up to Koccoster to ask the
voters there to elect mo President of tho
United States," said Mr. Wilson, "because
I think that is going to happen anyhow.
Hut it would be a feather in my cap if

of the State commonly regarded as a
Republican stronghold should do me the
honor of voting for me."
Gov. Wilson had lunch at the Colling

chairman. He spent tho part of the after
