DAKOTA FARMERS HEIR ROOSEVELT 01 NEW PARTY PRINCIPLES Colonel Scores Woodrow son for Criticism of Proposed Federal Commission to Regu late Interstate Monopolies, PROGRESSIVES STAND BY ORGANIZATION Bull Moose Declares That Those Who Are Not for Him Are Against Movement for Bet torment of Conditions, Hy .Morning- 4turnnl AtwclHl TenflKd Wlre.l Jamestown, N. IX, Sept. (i. The voters of the country were divided Into two classes by Colonel Itoosevelt in li s speech today, namely those with anil Ihose against the progressive par ty. The man against It. however, sin rerely he may think he is progres sive, he said, "is the ally of Wail street, the ally of privilege, the ally of bossism." Coming into North Dakota, whhn Senator LaFollette curried In the pri maries preceding the republican na tional convention. Colonel Itoosevelt made a particular ell'nrt to win over supporters of progressives principles from the republican and democratic candidates. He criticised Woodrow Wilson lor his stand in reward to the progressive proposal for an Interstate industrial commission to regulate large corporations. He appealed to the farmers of the state to stand with the: new party on the tariff. In Kitrgo, Colonel Itoosevelt spoke first to an audience composed large ly of farmers. "I particularly call the attention of North Dakota," he said, "to certain similarities between the situation now and that in 1864. At that time a num ber of republican leaders, the pro gressive leaders of the day, including Fremont, the first republican candi date for the presidency, and Wendel Phillips, a leader in the anti-shivery cause, were so discontented with Lin coln and certuln actions of the mass of their fellow progressives, that thoy actually proposed to run a third ticket against Lincoln and when this elfin failed, many of them stood sullorly aloof and either supported no out or went against Lincoln. "Now the same kind of thing is tir ing done hy these men today, who claim to be pre grcssives and yet tail to support the progressive ticket. If a man is not with us he is against us, and if he Is against us he is siding with the reactionaries. No matter how well meaning he may lie, no matter how sincerely he may think he is a progressive, he is the ally of Wall street, the ally of privilege, the ally of bossism In politics unless he heart ily and in good faith supports the pro gressive party. "Mr. Wilson the other day recited his opposition lo a federal commission to regulate monopolies and said: ' 'No body of men exists which knows how to tell his country what the processes of industry should be.' "This' is, without the change of a word, exactly what the reactionaries, the opponents of pronressivlsm, have always said whenever we have intro duced public utilities commissions in the states, and without the change of a word it is precisely what the great reactionary railroad magnates said when they were fighting the establish ment of the interstate commerce com mission. The propnesy proven lame regards the public utilltiei Finns. It proved false about commls the inter- slate commerce commission will prove false as regards , and it the pro- posed commission to regulat the in- terstate industrial business that have any monopolistic eies." conccrns teiiden- Mi iii(i.x snows Kit; TUT SFATIMI'.NT. Chicago, Sept. 6. Charles H. War ren, republican national committee man from Michigan, today Joined Da vid Mulvane, of Kansas, director of 'he republican campaign of the west, at the Chicago headquarters. Mr. Warren said that 1.10.0110 republicans had enrolled in Michigan as against Vimiii progressives. "We have in Michigan," said Mr. Wauvn, "a law which allowed any "ii.- who had enrolled as a republican, ur a democrat, to re-enroll as a pro gressive, as the progressive party is a 1"W- one, while those who had not eiiro(., at all, were given an oppor tunity to vote by subscribing- ur u progressive. Despite this wide open d"or, the progressives succeeded in enrolling only 2 1-2 per cent of the total vote of the state. FINAL PLANS FOR M'ARTHUR FUNERAL Milwaukee, Sept. .

UNITED STATES TO INTERVENE SAYS Only Thing This Country Can Do to Protect Americans in Mexico, Declares New Mexico Statesman, Kansas City, Sept. 6. "Are we goins lo intervene in Mexico'.' Why that's the only thing we can do," declared I'nlted States Senator Thomas 11. Catron, of Santa Fe, X. M., here tonight. "It soon will be necessary to send troops to Mexico to save American lives. The Mexicans are more hostile to Americans than to any other people. "If I had 1,000 invested in Mexico, I would not consider it worth more than $50. That's why Intervention is absolutely necessary. 1 believe troops will be sent there soon." CALIFORNIA TAFT MEN WILL GET L Progressives, Who Won Repub lican Emblem at Primaries, Voluntarily Waive Advantage Thus Secured, IBy Morning Journal fipri-lul li4 Wlre.l Los Angeles, Sept. f.

('hail man Lissncr said tonight, be fore leaving for San Francisco to con fer with other progressive leaders, that his party would relinquish what ever advantage was gained on Tues day when it won the right o the designated "republican on the elec toral ballot. "We will place ourselves on an even looting with the Taft 'republicans,'" he said, "and we want them to go on the ballot with us by petition. When they talk about the Impossibility of getting electors upon the ballut by petition they are playing the baby act. We are going to show them how easily it can be done." In Iues(ia s primary, the progres sives won more than eighty of th lou legislative nominations contend,' for, besides having- fourteen out of iweiitv hold over state senators. 1'n der the California law, the legislative nominees will constitute the state con vention which will name candidates for slate electors.

From within the grass-grown ram parts of oh) Fort Griswnld on Col ton Heights, President Taft, Ibis af ternoon, told the ileu-gatcs lo the At lantic deep waterways convention that no Individual should allow his own selfish Interests, or his personal am bition to lead him to climb into power over some one else. "We should not forget our true relation to our fellowinen." he said, "nor the obligations we owe to those who, as Individuals, make the body politic." The president had been telling the story of the defense of Fort Gris wold, 131 years ago and of tMe cour age of those farmers who had de fended the walls against the Hrltish under ltenedlet Arnold. Turning from the lessons of his tory, the president took up the mat ter of deeper waterways, a movement which he favored. Of the Panama canal, he said he saw nothing which suggests delay In sending American battleships through it a year hence. The president said: "I signed the Panama canal bill, as yen know. If you were to read some of the strictures on that act of mine, you would think the executive and congress went around looking for a chance to violate a treaty, and then violate a treaty Just for the fun of It. On the matter whether there has been any violation of treaty rights. I think il lair to examine the question up one side and down the other anil hear arguments on each side before calling names or before siding against one's own country." The president arrived here at noon. He came ashore with Mrs. Taft anil several members of his party who had come over from New York on the Mayflower.

LABOR ENEMY United States Troopers Repel Invading Force of Superior Numbers in Long Range Skirmish Near Hachita, INSURRECTOS INCLINED TO FORCE INTERVENTION Fifth Invasion of American Ter ritory Within Few Weeks Re garded as Grave by Military Authorities, Douglas, Ariz., Sept.

Thirteen Ameri can troopers, held hack twenty five rebels, killing; five and wounding one of the Mexicans, it Is reported. The rebels are believed to be from the com mand of In ex Sulazar, whoso men also engaged American sol diers below Hachita, X. M., fur ther to the east. By Morning Journal Special I.eiuiM Wlre.l KI Paso, Tex., Sept. 6. Entrance of Mexican rebels Into the Putted States and the subsequent engagement with I'nlted States troops below Hachita, X. M.i reported today to General K, S. Steever, at Ft. Hllss, Texas, makes the fifth Invasion of American soil In Ihe last few weeks, Although no one was wounded in the brush between fifteen troopers of the Third cnvuli" and u superior band of relu'li-, who crossed the international line lo rail a ranch on the American side, the. in cident Is deemed more than of n&unif Importuned in military circles. It Is asserted that Inea'3iiluMr, the rebel chief operating below the New Mexico border, Is intent on causing international complications, consist ent with his disarmament of the American settlers in the suite, of Chi huahua. Since the invasion of So nuia by rebels, Salazar has made many incendiary speeches us well as issuing a proclamation against Amer icans, according- to advices received by military authorities. It l believed that the rebels know the divldit g line between Xew Mexico and the Mexi can state of Sonora and that the x- pedltlon on American soil us reported today was merely made, to untjigonl'e the United Slates troops stationed .along the border to preserve neutral ity, The rebels lire in great need ol ammunition and the activity of the American soldiers In prevent Ii k smug gling of munitions of war has mused much 111 feeling. it is probable that the bonier pa trol along the Sonora line will bo strengthened, say officials at VI. llllss, from where General Siuever com- iiianus me department of Texas, us well us the New Mexico and Arizona border adjacent.. At .present, there are only.thrtn troops of the Third cavalry stationed near Hacliita. where, a number of the Invasions by rebels have occurred recently. It is deter mined to receive the rebels warmly, as It ,ls impossible for the American soldiers lo pursue the Invaders far ther than Ihe international Imun dary. Owing to the vast territory to be patrolled, only a few troopers aro stationed ut nny one point and the Mexican invasion comes so unexpect edly that it is impossible to oiler the proper leceplion with so lew cavalry men on duty. In the recent Instance, the fifteen Aiiwricaii troopers met a superior number of rebels, who attempted to raid a ranch on Ihe American side, resulting in a long range engagement and the rupture or one rebel, while another's horse was shot from under the rider. The rebels later returned In great numbers, only to be driven over the boundary by thu American soldiers. GOVERNMENT LEARNS OF LUMBER TRUST Portland, Ore., Sept. fi.

Chairman Strauss looked puzzled. McGee, who got his name In the In dian country hy riding a broncho Into camp with suspenders used as reins, moved toward the platform. "They say I am crazy, but 1 know what I am doing," he cried as lie swung; upon the platform.

"Who do you MWu nominate?" asked ( 'ln.ti i.i.in ( "Suspender Jack' paused u moment and then cried: "I nominate the illustrious and hon orable osear fi. Strauss." The delegates seemed stunned; then a lew of them cheered. Mr. Strauss gave u! amused laugh at "Suspender Jack." bowing before him.

Chairman Strauss a I first shook his head depreca I ingly at the growing ova lion. He turned to friends and n-mark- ed: "This must not be; I cannot ac cept." Chairman Hotchkiss left his seat among the delegates and rushed to the platform. Placing his hands on Mr. Strauss' shoulder, he said: "You must accept, you must ac cept; all the delegates are for you." Scores of delegates pressed toward the platform to urge Mr. Strauss to make the decision. Then Mr. Hotch kiss bent from the group that sur rounded Mr. Slratiss and held up be fore the crush of excited delegates n sheet of yellow paper on which was written, "He Accepts."

Chairmat, Hotchkiss was allowed to Set as chairman In place of Mr. Slrnuss, The nomination of Mr. Hotchkiss for governor was with draw and John A. Kingsbury und Timothy Woodiul'f withdrew the name of Mr. Prendcrgast. Then came a flood of speeches, seconding tho nomination of the former minister to Turkey.
