Voters of Forty-Eight States Get Another
Chance to Show Independence at
Tomorrow's Election.
The attitude of the old-line politicians, in both par
ties, is today marvclousy bimilar to that which they as
sumed last spring on the eve of the primaries in one State
after another which Roosevelt swept.
Deep down in their minds lies the sickening fear that
the voters of forty-eight States are going to do what the
voters of twelve States did last t-pring.
The Progressives lost no State in which the voters
had a chance to express themselves at the ballot box.
The peoplo will get another

forced all Interest to ho centered on
the Roosevelt candidacy.
It will bo reculled that. In the prl
