SOME IMPRESSION GATHERED
AT THE T. R. MEET
"The stock yards is the proper
place to stage a Roosevelt meeting.
That's where they have lots of cattle
and there is plenty of BULL among
'em." A Conductor -on a Halsted
"Well, old T. R. hasn't changed my
feeling. His "I did this" and "I did
that" stuff almost made me think he
was the Republican candidate.
Hughes lines up to me like Teddy's
weak sister. Somebody pinned this
Wilson buton on me at the meeting.
He's my man, so why shouldn't I
wear it?" An elderly man who left
the T. R. meeting when it was half
"i'm glad I got one of the flags that
were given out at the T. R. meeting
at the stockyards pavilion. I. will
take the stars'and stripes home and
hang 'em up over Wilson's picture in
my front window." One of the men
who stuck the T. R. meeting through
to "the finish.
"Teddy throws the bull like a reg
ular Mexican bullfighter. And it is
some bull. It's too bad they" didn't
send Hughes himself. Teddy took all
the bull out of the Bull Moose party."
A young Jewish voter who ex
plained that he hadjj't guite decided
who he was for, but was a little more
inclined for Wilson after hearing
T. R. spiel.
"Teddy is a wise old guy. He asked
the band to play 'Hail, Hail, the
Gang's All Here.' He knows that the
same gang that has been behind him
since he threw up the sponge at the
Progressive convention is still with
him." A copper who says he is not
one of the gang.
"Roosevelt mentioned Wilson as a
powder puff carrier. Probably Ted
dy's puff would be a powder puff, too,
but one of the gun powder. We folks
of families and home, sweet homes,
much prefer face powder to gun
powder." A lady who says her hus
band has always been a Republican
and is too stubborn to change, but
who is going to cast her vote for Wilson.
