parts of the country will assemble In
Chicago t?-morrow und formulato
plans fur the defeat of President Taft
for renomlnutluu a.; Kandidat? of his
parly In 1012.
While the call which went out sev?
eral weeks ago to the Progressives
of the putty to meet In Chicago did
not say In pluln language that the
conference was designed to further the
presidential candidacy of Senator La
Kollette, ol Wisconsin, every Insur?
gent politician recognized In It a move?
ment to nominate the Senator.
This meeting will be attended by
La Follettc supporters only. Those
Senutors who followed La Pollutte III
the last two sessions of Congress will
dominate it, and the other Progres?
sives will follow their lead. It is rea?
sonable tu expect, therefore, that to?
morrow's gathering will give thu La
I'ollcltc boom nation-wide scope

have Indicated that they will be on

Scveral Governors of States and sev?
eral hundred leading Progressives will
be there to aid In drafting a platform
and launching the movement against
the Tuft administration. In all, about
500 Insurgents are lookod for. and
a national organization of La Follette
forces will be the result.
When the organization Is perfected
an appeal to the voters of the party
and to State organizations will be
made. The cry will be renewed with
greater force than ever that the Presi?
dent could not possibly be re-elected
If nominated, therefore It would bo folly
for the party to plucc him at the head
of the ticket. This probably will bo
the keynote of the conference.
L'pon this theory the Progressives
expect to gain strength throughout the
South and Last, as well as through?
out the West. Whether or not they
can command enough votes In the
convention seriously to embarrass the
reactionaries of their party, of course,
i email. to be seen. It Is not too
early to forecast that they will have
enough force on the door of the con?
vention to make the light Interesting.
ITie Cnlcago gathering was conceived
by the frogressi v? Republican Cam?
paign' committee, with headquarters
In this city. The managers of this
committee, all of whom are pledged to
the support of La Follette, decided
thut It was necessary to plan u cam
palgn on a nullonul basis. Incident?
ally, they chose a time just us the
President's Western trip was coming
to an end to launch their movement.

TAKES PRELATES TO TASK
Senator Bourne Sn>s They Ignored
Benson nnd Experience.
Washington, October 15. Senator
Jonathan Bourne, Jr. president of
the National Progressive Republican
League, in a statement to-day, took
to task Cardinal Gibbons und Arch?
bishop Ireland for their criticism of
tlic Initiative, referendum and recall,
as practiced In Oregon.
The Senutor declared that both rea?
son and experience were Ignored by
the two prelates In their use of the
words 'mob law' und 'mobocrucy' in
describing the Oregon system.
"Mobs act under the sudden impulse
Of anger, fear or hutred." says tho
, statement. "Mob action Is ubsolutc
1 ly Impossible under the Initiative or
! referendum, because there Is not less
| than four months of discussion before
u vote can be taken, it is *ilso Im?
I possible under the recall, because the
I recall cannot be invoked until peti?
tions have been circulated and signed
by at least 25 per cent, of Ihe voters.
This takes weeks and gives the widest
publicity. Then the recall election
cannot i,e held within less than twen?
ty days after filing the petition. Vot?
ing under such circumstances cannot
be mob action.
"Nine year's experience In Oregon
demonstrates that the initiative refer
! endum and recall are not Injurious to
any personal right or legitimate prop

"God meant him for a leader," said
the archbishop of Cardinal Gibbons.
"He could not speak as your pastor
only, O Catholic people of Maryland,
ns cardinal, primate of the American
hierarchy, as bishop ot the national
capital, he belongs to the whole coun?
try. Many indi->? listen to him as, to
ihe voice o> religion; for prejudice
disarms when the cardinal speaks. He.
more than any other amongst us, iliaa
directed the course of Catholicism In
our land. But, above all, he has ex?
pressed most truly and most clearly
the Catholic thought and sentiment of
America and thereby crystallized them.
"His love of country, spontaneous In
Its origin, has become through reflec?
tion and experience the fixed principle
of a mature mind., and close observa?
tion of conditions here and abroad has
but Intensified Oils love. ? ? ? um
America's best gift to her children he
has held to be religious liberty. Wo
understand its meaning In this coun?
try, at least most of us do; It is still
written on our hearts as well as on
our statute books. Nothing Is morn
precious to us, as Americans, and us
Catholics; and Cardinal Gibbons, who
Is best known here and abroad for
his utterances on religious liberty,
speaks not for himself only, but for us
all. Iteligion here is untramtnelod,
thanks to our separation of church and
state, am) whatever the future may
bring, we would desire no change here
in the relations of church and slate.
That is one lesson, surely, taught us
by European history and bitterly
driven home by the events of our day.
No meddling official has a veto power
over our preaching. No bureaucrat,
more or less hostile to religion, draws
up a list of names from which our
bishops are chosen. The civic rights of
our church are intrenched In our con?
stitution and upheld by the power m
the state. On the frlendllosl terms,
neither has any desire for a closer
union. The church iure knows t;iat It
can better do Its work apart; |t Is
freer and therefore more powerful, and
being unpaid by tho state, and inde?
pendent, It can uphold law and order
without giving to any one an excuse
to suspect Its motives."
"Civic righteousness," the prelate
continued, "bus always been u favorite
topic with the cardinal. Wisely avoid?
ing questions of party politics, he had
rightly regarded civic duties as a mat?
ter of morality, anil therefore of reli?
gion. He has tried to rouse the con?
science of men, otherwise good, whu
have a sof t-na tured toleration for pub?
lic dishonesty, and he ha-CvlgofcVusly
denounced our wide deflections from
tho true Ideals of citizenship."

Of the countless movements that the
cardinal has been besieged with foi
aid. the most pressing, the. most diffi?
cult problems which have confronted
him, the archbishop said, concerned so?
cial Justice, 'ills masterly paper on
j the Knights of Labor, written a quar?
ter of a'century ago," the archbishop
went on, "shows his linn control of the
chief elements of the general problem
t nnd the attitude which he considered
! Imposed by the situation upon tho
church and her clergy. His office as
' tho cardinal co>*t4ved it was to modi

main lines of the solution and by fast?

the situation, and was one of the first
and strongest advocates of the only
possible solution, which is compulsory
arbitration. Skilled labor in tills
country to-day is In general able to
obtain Justice, and sometimes, no doubt
oversteps the line, it Is in the hum?
