Sptclal to Tub Bin and Nbw Voik Heuld. Pouoiikkei'sib, June 5. Franklin K. Lane, the principal speaker to-night at a "get together" meeting of the Democrats of Dutchess, Columbia, Orange and Put nam counties at tho home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, said the next candidate for tho Presidency on the Democratic ticket must be a "vlsuallicr." By this, he said, he meant a man whose breadth of vision must "take In the entire world." Mr. Lane said the Democratic leaders had been engaged In carrying on the war and were assured by the Repub licans that at Its termination they would start some really constructive legisla tion. In this, he said, they had abso lutely failed. In regatd to the exposure of the use of large sums of money In the primaries Mr. Lane said : "No man of real ability or standing would require money to exploit himself. It Is, therefore, evident that the expendi ture of such large sums of money In order to give some standing to the candidates Is a sure Indication that they arc far short of real Presidential timber." Mr. Roosevelt In Introducing Mr. Lane said: "I take great pleasure In Introducing to you a man who but for one fact would be the unanimous choice of the Democrats at the convention to be held at San Francisco In July, that la the fact he was born In Canada.
