PROGRESSIVES SLAP BACK AT
The attacks of the trust news
papers on the Bull Moose party were
severely criticized at the dinner of
the Progressive Club in honor of Ray
mond Robins, state chairman of the
Progressive party, last night.
"The stand-pat newspapers are
trying to create discord and dissen
sion in our party," Sen. Prank H.
Punk charged. "I want to assure Mr.
Robins of my hearty support."
This statement of Sen. Punk prob
ably will quiet all rumors of ill-feeling
in the new party or the existence of a
factional fight between the down
state leaders and the Chicago ieaders.
Harold L. Ickes, Aid. Charles E.
Merriam, Mr. Robins, Arthur H. Shay,
Rep. Hinebaugh and Rep. W. B. El
liott also branded the stories of a
split as untrue.
Representative Hinebaugh said
the new political movement was now
only opposed by "the sinister influ
ence of political machines." He also
declared there would be no amalga
mation with the Republican party.
Mr. Rbbins reviewed the history of
the Progressive party and said it was
really coming into life years before
the last Republican convention.
"William Jennings Bryan and Rob
ert LaFollette were the real pioneers
of the progressive movement," said
The new state chairman also
praised William Sulzer, deposed gov
ernor of New York, for his fight
against the Tammany Hall crowd,
characterizing Charles P. Murphy as
the most corrupt man in American
Miss Jane Addams made a warm
speech in which she said, that the
Bull Moose party's fight for social
justice in thjis country would-soon be'
crowned with success.
