Roosevelt's Followers Cheer
Him for Forty-Two Minutes.
m . miii i
Colonel's First Speech Since the Attempt
en His Life.
Thouaands Turned Away From
Madison Square Garden in New
York?Human Bights Theme.
NEW YORK. October 31.?Col. Theodore
Roosevelt last n'ght In Madison
Square Garden delivered his first speech
since the attempt on his life In Milwau- 1
kee October 14. He faced for an hour and
twenty minutes a progressive political
rally which gave many thousands of his 1
fellow New Yorkers a chance to accord
him an uproarious welcome. For fortytwo
minutes after his entrance Into the '
crowded hall Col. Roosevelt stood at the
edge of the high-perched speakers' plat- !
form, unable to make himself heard 1
above the din of cheers, songs and band
music, while persistently was heard the 1
measured chant: "We want Teddy! e 1
want Teddy!" 1
Col. Roosevelt refused to sit down or '
to leave the rail that edged the flimsy
p'atform. The attention and silence that
greeted the address by Col. Roosevelt
w ere as marked as the demonstration that '
preceded it.
The Immense garden was crowded to
its doors, and thousands of persons were '
turned away. Gov. Hiram Xohnson, pro- l
gressive candidate for Vice President, and ;
Oscar S. Straus, candidate for Governor <
of New York, preceded Col. Roosevelt. (
Gov. Johnson was speaking when Col.
Roosevelt was brought to the hall at 0:15 ]
p.m. Cheers In the street outside sig- ,
naled his approach, and an answering
cheer within the hall brought Gov. John- j
son's speech to an end. When quiet was j
restored Col. Roosevelt began his srpeech.
Chance Now for People.
< oi noowveii 8(w*e s? luuunc.
"Friends, perhaps once in a generation, '
not more often, there comes a chance for
the people of a country to play their part
wisely and fearlessly in some great battle
of the age-long warfare for human
rights. To our fathers the chance came
in the mighty days of Abraham Lincoln",
the man who thought and tolled and suffered
for the people with sad. patient and
Kindly endeaeor. To our forefathers the
chance came in the troubled years that
stretched from the time when the First
Continental Congress gathered to the
time when Washington was inaugurated
as first President of the republic. To us,
In our turn, the chance has now come to
stand for liberty and righteousness as in
their day these dead men stood for liberty
and righteousness. Our task is not
as great as theirs. Yet it is well nigh as
important. Our task is to profit by the
lessons of the past and to check in time
the evils that grow around us, lest our
failure to do so may cause dreadful dieaster
to the people. We must not sit supine
and helpless. We must not permit
the brutal selfishness of arrogance and
the brutal selfishness of envy In each to
run unchecked In its evil course. If we
do so. then some day smoldering hatred
wil suddenly kindle into a consuming
flame, and either we or our children will
be called on to face a crisis as grim as
any which this republic has ever seen.
"It is our business to show that ninetenths
of wisdom consists in being wise
in time. Woe to our nation if we let
matters drift, if in our industrial and political
life we let an unchecked and utterly
eelilsh individualistic materialism
riot to Its appointed end. That end would
be widespread disaster, for it would mean
that our people would be sundered by
those dreadful lines of division which are
drawn when the selfish greed of the haves
is set over against the selfish greed of
the have-nots. There Is but one way to
prevent such a division, and that is to
forestall it by the kind of a movement in
which we are now engaged.
Movement Is Besolute.
"Our movement Is one of resolute Insistence
upon the rights and full acknowledgment
of the duties of every i
man and every woman within this great
land of ours. We war against the forces
< .* evil, and the weapons we use are the
weapons of right. We do not set greed
against greed, or hatred against hatred.
Our creed is one that bids us be just to
all. to feel sympathy for all and to strive
t >r an understanding of the needs of all.
Our purpose is to smite down wrong. But
toward those who have done the wrong
v-e feel only the kindliest charity that is
compatible with causing the wrong to
cease. We preach hatred to no man. and
the spirit In which we work is as far removed
from vindictiveness as from weakness.
We are resolute to do away with
the evil, and we intend to proceed with
such wise and cautlou! sanity as will
cause the very minimum of disturbance
that Is compatible with achieving our
Care Not for Words.
"We care for facts and not for formulas.
We care for deeds and not for
words. We recognize no sacred right of
oppression. We recognize no divine right
to work injustice. We stand for the Constitution.
We recognize that one of its
most useful functions is the protection
of property. But we will not consent to
make of the Constitution a fetich for the
protection of fossilized wrong. We call
the attention of those who thus interpret
it to the fact that in that great Instrument
of justice life and liberty are put
on a full level with property, indeed are
enumerated ahead of it in the order of
their importance. We stand for an upright
judiciary. But where the judges
laim the right to make our laws by
finally Interpreting them, by finally deciding
whether or not we have the power '
to make them, then we claim the right
ourselves to exercise that power. We
forbid any men. no matter what their
official position may be, to usurp the
light which is ours, the right which is
the people's We recognize in neither
court nor Congress nor President any divine
right to override the will of the people
expressed with due deliberation in
orderly fashion and through the forms of
law. We progressives hold that the
words of the Declaration of Independence
as given effect by Washington and as
construed and applied by Abraham Lincoln
are to be accepted as real and not as
empty phrases. We believe that in very
truth this is a government by the people
themselves, that the Constitution is theirs,
that the courts are theirs, that all the;
wvernrarinai agents ana agencies are
iheirs. We believe tiiat all true leaders
<>f the people must fearlessly stand for
righteousness and honesty, most fearlessly
tell the people what justice and honor
demand. But we no less strongly insist
that it is for the people themselves finally
to decide all questions of public policy
ar.d to have their decision made effective.
"In the platform formulated by the progressive
party we have set forth clearly
and specifically our faith In every vital
point at issue before this people. We have
declared our position on the trusts and on
the tariff, on the machinery for securing
genuine popular government, on the method
of meeting the needs of the farmer, of
the business man and of the man who
toils w ith his hands, in the mine or on the
railroad, in the factory or in the shop.
There is not a promise we have made
which cannot be kept. There is not a
promise we have made that will not be
kept. Our platform is a covenant with
the people of the I'nited States, and if w*e
are given the power we will live up to
that covenant in letter and In spirit.

Battleships a Year.
Address Men of the Nary Yard Who
Built tiio Kew York.

Head of Havy Department Points ::
Out to Hearers Duty of Demanding
More Large-Caliber Ships.
NEW YORK. October 31.?Two battle- ij
ships yearly as a program necessary to
keep the American navy in adequate con
ditlon were urged, by President Taft In j
the Thirteenth Regiment armory, in :
Brooklyn, last night, addressing hundreds :
of officials and employee of the Brooklyn ;
navy yard.
The President and Secretary Meyer were :
guests at a dinner given by the men of
the navy yard, who built the battleship ;;
New York, which was launched yester- ;
The President was greeted with several ::
minutes of. cheering when he entered the ;
armory. The noise and confusion were so
great that he climbed unassisted to t ;
chair and thence upon the table.
Navy Yard Workers Congratulates
"I congratulate the men of the Brook- ::
lyn navy yard Jn making and launching , ;
this gTeat battleship, which is to add so j
mucn to tne prestige ana prowess or our g
country," the President said. "I congrat- j: l
ulate you on the beauty of the launching. j
Nothing occurred today that Interfered I 3
with the good luck which will follow that j
ship through all her life. ; 1
"We all hope the New York will never
be used in war. Her uee to the country |
shall be in insuring peace, in that all na- j::
tions of the world will see that we are :
ready to defend ourselves if the occasion
should arise.
"I believe public opinion in this country :
warrants those in authority in Washing- !
ton to continue the policy of building two '
most formidable battleships every year, ;
as this is necessary to keep our navy In
adequate condition."
Secretary Meyer also urged a greater :
Duty of Laboring Man.
Secretary Meyer, after he had review- j
ed the building of war veBsels under gov- :
ernment supervision, urged that it . was
the duty of American laboring men to
insist upon an adequate navy. He de- ;
clared that employes should realise that
when forces were decreased in the gov- :
ernment yards the fault was not with
the Secretary of the Navy, but with "the
body that holds the strings of the public ;
purse." ;
As Americans, even before workmen, ;;
he said, "it is your duty to insist with ;;
your congressmen upon an adequate i
navy?a navy for the prevention of war
and the maintenance of an honorable :
peace, but, above all. an adequate navy.
"We want you and I, a fleet of forty- ;
one battleships?twenty-one in an active ;
fleet and twenty in reserve?and of these ;
we want twenty-one New Yorks or better ::
as soon as possible, for, in the larger ::
caliber ships rests the defense of the !
country. Given an adequate navy, the j
prosperity of the navy yards follows as j
sure as dawn follows darkness. You. ;
then, as Americans, have a duty and I ;
have pointed the way. Do your utmost, ;:
that never again shall we have to dlsfcuss :
the question of battleships and be confronted
with the positive danger of secur- tt
ing only one for a year. _
Part of National Defense.
"Consider that you, too, are an essential
part of the national defense. With
every rivet you fasten you are defending
the flag, and upon your doing your work
well may depend the safety of the ship
that carries your flag. If you do your
work wel> you have don? your share In
the national defense as well as he who

"The American laborer is the most honored
man in the world; we have proved
In this great land or ours over and over
again throughout our history that labor
conquers all things. We honor labor as
does no other country on earth. We want
the navy yard laborer to be the most
honored among American workmen. Let
patriotism and loyalty be your watchwords.
I appeal to you, master workmen,
keep alive in your men that esprit de
corps without which no cause can succeed.
Make the teamwork which has
brought our tighting ships to their present
state of efficiency also your guide.
Taft for Efficient Navy.
"Some days ago there were assembled
in the North river battleships, cruisers,
destroyers, submarines and auxiliaries, f:
the very flower of our fleet, gathered together
in review before the commanderin-chief
of the army and navy, the President
of the United States, who during his
term of office has stood firmly for an efficient
navy and a building program of not
less than two battleships a year.
"I will not indulge in comparative figures
or tabulated data, but, Individually
and collectively, the vessels of this fleet
and the one then mobilized at Manila, together
with such other vessels as were at
sea following their lawful vocation, were
in a state of readiness never before ex

Made Great Profit Over Demand for
Tickets for Roosevelt Meeting.
NEW YORK. October 31,-Tloket speculators
reaped a rich harvest from the
sale of tickets to Col. Roosevelt's Madison
Square Garden meeting last night
and it appeared today that no action '
against them is possible under the ticket "
speculation ordinance, which has proved l
effective in the case of the theaters and .
ball parks. The night court magistrate,
before when a number of the speculators '
were arraigned, decided thstt a political 5
meeting is not a performance or amuse- _
ment" within the meaning of the city or- 1
dinance. 1
Seats for the Roosevelt meeting were 5
on sale throughout the afternoon and
early evening at uptown hotels and cafes, 1
the prices generally ruling at from $5 to 5
$8 apiece, while standing room checks .
were quoted at $2 each.
At progressive headquarters it was stat- 1
ed that 18,000 tickets were issued for the 4
meeting. One-half of them were disposed
of through the district leaders, while the '
remainder were sold by the management 3
for what they would bring. There was
no lixed price, it was said Boxes brought
from #10O down and seats were sold from '
*1 up. Altogether about SK.fiOO was re- <i
reived from the sale of tickets with sev- .
eral districts still to be heard from. The
committee said that it took every possl- <?
ble precaution against tickets falling into
the hands of speculators.

Beef cattle are $5.36 per 100 pounds,
compared with $4.34 in lftio. Hogs are
$7.70, higher than last year, but not so
high as in 1910. when they went to $8.08.
Fruit as a rula la lower, this having
been a favorable fruit season. Most of
the staple vegetables remain at About
the same figure.
