Workings of the National

SPIUNGFliaLD. HI.. Oct. 13. Gover
nor Pcneen, replying to the stateniont
yesterday by Colonel Roosevelt, gave
out the following tonighli '
"The statement of Colonel Roosevelt Ib
characteristic. Jle denies facts which
embarrass him and misstates and colors
other facts In an attempt to justify hia
conduct toward the Republicans of Illi
nois and myself.
"First, regarding the thirty-four dele
gates. Theuc aro the facts. Governor
Iladlcy introduced a resolution to take
from the temporary roll tho Taft dele
gates? and substitute the Roosevelt dele
gates In certain contested states. These
numbered about seventy-eight delegates
all told.
Sent for by Roosevelt.
"Colonel Roosevelt sent for me and
asked me to Introduce a resolution limit
ing the number to the thirty-four dele
gates from Washington, California, Ari
zona and Texas. I refused to do this
without Governor Tludlcy'a consent, be
cause he bad presented the motion and
he and others had discussed it before
the convention, and my motion could not
be submitted until after the debatu end
ed. I felt that 7 could not afford to
change the line of a battle which had
been participated in by Governor Iladley
and others in behalf of Colonel Roose
velt and make them appear to he acting
either without knowledge or without good
faith to the convention.
"Colonel Roosevelt, in ills statement,
say the roll was called upon the Cali
fornia delegates, simply because In this
cane the facts were uncontested, and if
there was the slightest hope of persuad-
ing- the convention to act decently in any
case.. It would be In this eaae.'
i Ground for Difference.
"I voted with tho RooscvolL delegates
on the resolution to unseat the two Cali
fornia delegate. I- do not think thoy
were seated fraudulently. There was
ground for an honest difference of opin
ion upon the merits of thai, ease."
Governor Dvicen hero reviews the
California csc, adding.
"Were the California law enacted in
Illinois, the -Ity of Chicago In a hitter
rontcst would name every delegate to the
Republican national convention. tho
Democralh- convention and tho Prohibi

bo tolerated in our state.

of His Sincerity.
Declares They Obtained Con

Fraud and Contempli- .
ble Deception.
By International News Service.
WASHINGTON. D. C, Oct. 13. In
an extended statement given
out todaj-, Senator John D.
"Works of California, a Pro
gressive Republican, comes out
openly for Woodrow Wilson and advise
all Progressives to vote for the Democrat
ic candidate for president
In bis statement Senator Works bitter
ly condemns the Progressive party of Cali
fornia and affirms that tho third party
obtained possession of that state through
fraud and deception.
In announcing his intention to vote for
Governor Wilson, Senator Works says
that he does In effect throw all personal
ambition to the winds; that the Pro
gressives of California, his former
friends, have already denounced him as
a traitor and aro urging him to resign
his seat in the senate.
Praises Wilson.
"Wilson. Is a real and sincere Pro
gressive," said Senator Works. "He has
proved It by his course and conduct as
a public ofllcer and as a candidate. He
1b running on a mine, progressive plat
form. Nothing of benefit to progressive
principles or honeBt politics can be gained
by voting for cither Taft or Roosevelt.
Tho best service Progressive Rcpubllcanb
can render to their party .nd to their
country under these unfortunate circum
stances, Is to vole for Wilson. It will
help to teach dishonest manipulators of
polities a wholesome lesson. If you do,
you will bo denoiuiced ns a Democrat by
the regular Republicans, and as a traitor
to the progressive cause bj' tho Progres
sives, as I have been already. You may
lose all chanoe of future political prefer
ment You may make so many political
enomies by being honest and standing by
your conscientious convictions that you
cannot be elected to any office. You may
ho made the victim of personal abuse be
cause you liavo stood for the truth and
for common honesty. But all these things
count for nothing as against the abiding
conviction that you have done what you
sincerely believe to be right. What wo
need in politics just now more than any
thing else 1b moral courage. Courage to
stand firmly for right, honesty and Jus
tice. .Nothing else will do so much as
this lo purify politics, drive out of it ull
selfish privilege seekers, dishonest poli
ticians and corrupt bosses and protect tho
rights and Interosts of the people.
California Lost to Taft.
"The regular Republicans, so-caIic"d,
will tak-o the same course if they are wise,
Taft cannot carry California. Everybody
knows that. Therefore a voto for him Is
worse than a vote thrown away. It Is a
vote for Roosevelt and tho destruction of
the Republican party in the slate. With
the now parly scheme defeated tho Re
publican party can be reunited as a Pro
gressive party as it wa beforu some of
Its members were led away from it Into
a sham Progressive party, by men who
assumed to be its leaders, and who care
more for political success than for the
honor of any party.
"All good people In California should
unite In the effort to rebuke the men who
have resented to this scheme tof dishonest
politics and to defeat every candidate
who lias received his nomination by such
means, be the offlco for which he ls a can
didate high or low. This is a time to test
the sincerity of people who profess to be
licvo In hone3ty in politics.'
The senator adds tliat no kind of sophis
try or evaefpn can couccnl tho fact that
the mothods hy which the Progressive
party secured control or California was
fraudulent. "It Is pitiful," said ho, "that
o- great movement for reform In politics in
California that has achieved so much and
promised so much more niiould have been
brought to this sorry pass."
Law Is Lame.
"The merits of the respective candi
dates or their partieo," continues the
statcmunt," liavo nothing to do with the
fjue.stlon. It Is a question of common hon
esty and Justice. It Is to be regretted
that tho luw of the state did not allow
thc Progressive parly a place on tho pri
mary b-illot. Every voter in the state
should have tho right to vote for the can
didate of hi3 choice. The governor would
have been entirely justified in calling a
special setslon of tho legislature that the
law might have been ao amended as to
give that right. This not having been
done, tho only way lliut Roosovult Could

Ensign A. H. Butler Drowned
While Returning From
Shore Leave; Eleven Lives
Saved by Sailors.
N:W YORK. Oct IS. ISnsIgn Andes
Halley Butler, 17. S. N., wus
drowned in the Hudson river to
day while returning with three fel
low officers to his post on the bat
tleship Rhode Island in the lino of the
great Atlantic armada, at anchor here
for presidential review. In another ac
cident on the river, six sailors from tho
battleship Maine rescued eleven persona
from drowning.
It Is estimated that 200,000 sightseers,
many attracted from remote sections of
the country, boarded the larger ships o't
the fleet, and that more than 1,500,000
persons viewed tho licet from shore dur
ing the day and 'tills evening, when thfe
ships were illuminated.
The accident In which Ensign Butler
lost his life was one that his fellow offi
cers found hard to explain. Tie and his
party had spent the night In the city and
were on the way back to the ship in a
small private launch.
Stepped Overboard.
The little boat was making headway
with difficulty against the strong tide, and
when still fifty foot from the battleship,
young Butler was seen to step out from
beneath the canopy nnd go Into the wa
ter. It is believed he thought jnlstakenlj
that the' launch' had a sort of running
board outside the canopy as naval launch
es have, and that he intended to step
on this to make preparations for tho
The strong tide carried him down and
under the battleship. One of his com
panions dived for h'lm. but was unable to
reach him, and was rescued with diffi
culty. Butler's body had not been re
covered at a Inte hour tonight.
Butler was appointed to Annapolis from
Louisiana and graduated last year. Re
ports were current during the afternoon
that a seaman from the Rhode Island
was drowned, but this was declared er
roneous. Sailors Rescue Eleven.
The rescue In which the sailors from
the battleship Maine figured as heroes,
occurred when a small launch In which
Bernard Bauer and his family and friends
were visiting the ship, was cut squarely in
two by the sharp bow of the bigger steam
launch Vixen and tho occupants of the
small craft, including seven men and four
women, wore thrown Into tho river. The
little launch foundered almost opposite
Six sailors from the Maine were on the
Vlxon and they were the first to plunge
over the side to the rescue of the wom
en. All hands wore taken aboard safely,
but not without difficulty as the tide was
running strong and several members of
the purly had nearly succumbed before
the tailors reached them. The rescued
were taken aboard the Slaine first and af.
tor being treated by the ship's physician,
were landed and returned lo their homes.
Taft Due Today.
Aside from the excitement caused by
the day's accidents and the presence of
so many thousands of visitors, the blue
jackets wore occupied with preparations
for the official visit by the secretary of
the navy and president tomorrow.
The only event on the day's programme
was the arrival of Secretary Meyer and
his aides, but as his arrival was scheduled
as "unofficial." no sa lu lets or other dem
onstrations were made when the secretary
boarded the dispatch boat Dolphin.
Never before has .o large a licet of war.,
ships assembled in American waters,
therefore never such a roar of salutes as
will mark the president's arrival, tomor
row The president will review the ships
on Tuesday as they pass out to sea.
Tho crowd of visitors to the various
ships today was probably the largest ever
handled on the river. Everyone of the
tiilrty-one battleships and ninety-two ves
sels of other classes were open to Inspec
tion and all of thorn were overrun. The
strongest magnets wero the Arkansas and
Wyoming, the largest commissioned bat
tleships In tho world.
The yacht Vixen, which ran down the
launch, In wild to be the Vixen which Is
owned by John D. Aru'nbold, president of
the Standard Oil company of New Jersey.
The launch which she struck was the
forty-foot Mudvle. owned by Bernurd
Bauer of the Hudson River Yacht club.
Mr. Bauer was not sure whether Mr.
Archbold was on board the Vixen at the
time, but believes that, a man who di
rected the rescue of inmc of the men was
Mr. Archbold.
After the Vixen had taken tho rescued
party to nhorc. It disappeared, and late
tonight there had been no communication
with those on board.
