which haa kept him hanl at work since
he threw lilts lint Into the ring last spring.

was ao far recovered from his bullet
wound that hla physlelun permitted him
to go to church.
Colonel RooKcvclt guvu out his state
ment under dale of Novomber I. s his
appoul dny boforo election. Ho urged
every voter to read tho Progressive plat
form before going to the Pull". His state
ment follows:
I wish to appeal as strongly as 1
can to the nie.ii and women of this
country, to all good citizens through
out the union, and ask them to sup
port this great progressive movement
for righteousncae and for fair deal
ing. The progressive movement Is In
the Interest of every honest nun and
woman In tho land, and therefore, wo
have a right to ask Hint all good citi
zens, without regard to their past
political affiliations, stand with us
In this fight for cloan politics and for
the square deal In industry.
Faces Vital Issues.
Onlv tho Progressive party has
faced the real and vital issues of the
day. Xot only arc both old parties
bofiB-rlddeii and privilege-controlled,
but they show not the slightest con
ception of tho needs of the day or
the steps ncceesarv t0 lake If grave
disaster to tho nation In the future
Is to be avoided.
During the lifetime of a generation
which la now In middle life, extraord
inary social and Industrial changes
have, come over this land. The great
forcos now at work, social and In
diiHtrlal. are such as wore utterly un
dreamed half a century ago. Yet tlv
leaders of both of the. old parties
today arc attempting the futile feat
of trying to meet these new condi
tions by worn out governmental ex
periments and by appeal to little
formulas and dogmas which had a
qertuln usefulness before the daya of
tentn and cloctrloity, before the days
of concentrated Industry and tremen
dous economic developments, but
which sire now as utterly useless as
the flintlocks of the cou'llunulul sol
diers would be In modern warfare.
Time for Change.
The Progressives have seen that It
Is utterly useless to hope that a great
people, living under tho forma of a
political democracy and skilled by
. universal education, will long con
tinue to tolenito In economic matters
the reign of nn Industrial oligarchy,
tho enthronement of privilege and a
permanent and widespread inequality
of opportunity.
Neither in the platforms of the old
parties nor In tho utterances of their
candidates and leaders do we see the.
slightest sign of an appreciation of
this great fundamental Issue. The
Progreeslvo party thoroughly appreci
ate that this Is the issue, and with
courage and common sense, and In a
spirit of kindliness to all our people,
has faced the problem and outlined
the necessary first steps toward its
We Intend to use tho forces of gov
ernment to securo Justice and fair
plav between man and man, man
and woman, not only In the political
but in the Industrial world. We
recognize that It Is the duty of all
of ub so to shape conditions as to
secure favorable economic surround
ings for the average mnn who Is hon
est and industrious. We do noc re
gard economic well being as the all
of life, but we regard It as the Indis
pensable foundation, the foundation
which It Is necessary to secure for
all our people, and upon it we intend
to raise the superstructure of a high
er life.
Pleads for Votes.
Our opponents, Democratic and
Republican alike, have not ventured
to particularize as to which they
I urgently ask every voter In the
United States to read that platform
this very day and ponder over It,
and tomorrow to cost his vote, having
In mind what Is said In that plat
form. It docs not contain a promise
which ought not to be made, it does
contain even promise which. In view
of our situation, ought to bo made.
Even promise it contains can be
kept. If wo arc given the power.
every promise which it contains will
be kept. fSlnned)

Tho last pretentious offensive action

it failed miserably. A force of "MOO men

secondly, a rising of hordes of innddened

Massacre Feared.
There Is a largo and unruly element
of the population Which would bo clad
of any pretext for massacres and "pillage.
The presenco of more than 10,000 mos
lem refugees from the war zone who
have lost all their possessions adds to
the dnngcr of the situation. Rumors aro
current that the young Turks' commit

overthrowing the government, but there
have been no tangible proofs of such a
plan. It is doubtful whether a rising
