Gilford Pinchot, in a sinned statement made public tonight, announces that he has withdrawn his support from the Lu Folletto candldacj and that hereafter ho will udvocate the nomination of Koosevelt. Pinchot declares that the events of tho last month have made H ap purent that Senator LaFollette's can didacy neither will hold the progres sive republicans together as a light ing force nor prevent the nomination of "reactionary republican." "The course which the senator has elected to pursue," says Mr. Pinchot, "will not keep the progressives to gether and in that course 1 cannot follow him." The statement follows: . "The struggle which until recently has centered around Senator LaFol lett's candlducy was undertaken for Awo clear and specific purposes; first, to hold the progressives together us an effective flgnunjf force, and second, to prevent the nomination of a re actionary republican for tho presi dency. "Within the last month clrcum stunces have made it impossible to accomplish by means of the candi dacy of Senator LuFolleite either of these two purposes, and the Impera tive need for another leader has been made plain. "On! of these circumstances is the ill health of .Senator l.aKoll.'tto which Ilia friends so greatly deplore. 1 re main undiminished in my admiration for the high quality of his past ser vices to the progressive cause, but the course which the senator has elected to pursue will not keep the progres sives together and in that course I cannot follow him. From tho begin ning 1 have fought for a cause and a principle and not for a man. "The reasons for the action I am taking are set forth at length in a letter to Senator l.uFollette, In which I have notified him that, since, in my judgment, his ca ndi.il'y .. longer wW"d va i f w, w .;iViuu I ahull h'Tvnfter advocate the tiominfl' tion of Colonel llooseveit, whos duty I Ixlleve It is to tae up the leader ship of the progressive movement. "Until this notification to Senator ijiFollette was delivered I have, of course, taken no part in advocating tbef andidacy of Colonel Roosevelt. "The country knows that Colonel ltnor.cvt It Is a genuine progressive. That question was settled for all time hy his active championship of human rights durlns the seven years of con flict which made the. progressive movement a power In the nation."
