CORNWELL IS SCORED Watson as the Democratic State Boss is Given Sizzling Attention, Too. SHINNSTON, Oct. 28?For a town of only 2,000 inhabitants, Shlnnston tonlpht gave the Republican nominee for governor, Judge Ira E. Robinson, a wonderful demonstration. Assisted by delegations from Clarksburg, Lumberport and Gypsy, a parade of marchers more than a mile in length was formed and to the music of two brass bands passed through the principal streets. Judge Robinson rode at the head of th procession and was greeted from thi crowds that massed on the aldewalk3 along the line of march. The opera house where the meet ing was held acommodated only 1, 1)00 persons and consequently hun dreds who could not gain admission were disappointed in not hearing the speech. (ii-eatest Kver Given. Many local people declared that the demonstration was more than twice as big as any ever given here io a candidate for* the governorship or any other office. In his speech the Judge stamped Rosa Watson of the Democratic stat organization as a most audacious and Impudent character when he assume* the role oi appealing to labor to vote for Wilson and Cornwell. He said: "Mr. Watson is sending out a let-? ter making an appeal for labor to vote for Wilson and Cornwell. In view of his record among laboring people 1 not only brand this as audac ity. but downright impudence. Ilow inconsistent is such an appeal. Wat son*s own actions prove his feelings toward labor. A few weeks ago .t number of men employed by him about, his celestial grounds at Fair mont. taking care of bid so-called farm and looking after his blue rib bon horses, presented a written ap peal to him for a reduction from ten hours ot' labor a day in his em ploy to nine hours. This did not meet with a mere explanation and re fusal on his part. It r.:et with his personally going forth and discharg ing; every one of those men." Cornwell s Abuse. Referring to the campaign of per sonalities being conducted by his op ponent, Judge Robinson said: "Here is a sample of the peraon alities into which Mr. Cornwell has drifted: In his Fairmont spcech he said that 1 had a wishbone but no backbone. In answer to this I want to point him to the old days when we were in the state senate tosrothet, where I answered every roll call without missing a vote for two ses sions, and he so frequently took to the cloak room." For the first time tonight the judge made reference to the Democratic campaign cry of Hatfieldism by say ing: i "There is no danger that Hatfield-j ism will ever frighten me or weakeu me. as it did John Cornwell when he refused to answer a recent challenge lor joint debate. He Avns afraid of the present governor. I have nevei been afraid of him." Taking up the failure of the Dem ocrats to carry out their platform of 1912. especially as it applied to Clarence W. Watson, the judge said: Uroken Promises. "In 1912 they promised to exter minate the trusts by proceedings In the civil courts and to prosecute in the criminal courts the heads ot those same trusts. In their cam paign text book they published a list of trusts they proposed to annihi late, and it is Interesting to note' that in that list we find the Consoli dation Coal Company, of which Clarenco W.

"Wilson Day" Should Be as the People Have Eaten the Bit ter Bread of Shame. THE CLOAK OF COWARDICE Is That "Too Proud to Fight" behind Which There Is Hid ing Roosevelt Declares. NEW YORK. Oct. 28.?'Theodore Roosevelt, in an address at the Hrook lyn Academy of Music toil ay declared that " if today Is what our Democratic friends call 'Wilson day' it should bo appointod a day of fasting and humili ation." "For during the last three years," he went on. "the people of the ?United States have eaten the bitter bread of slmme and trod the paths of dishonor under the leadership of Mr. Wilson." The colonel directed most of his at tack against the recent declaration o* Mr. Wilson that the present was the last great world war that the United States can keep out of. "We have never had any candidate for so high an office who was so utter ly indifferent to the reversal of all his professed convictions or principles and. above all, so indifferent to the Hat contradiction between his words and his acts on almost every isBue of real Importance before the people." he said. Mr. Wilson's delay and vacillation; about preparedness," he said, "have j cost us seven years In time and need- j less billions of dollars in money. Nine-' tenths of wisdom Is being wise in time. "Mr. Wilson's own Cincinnati speech," he said, "is a more severe ar?| ralgnment than any outsider could! make of the 'criminal folly' of his ad-, ministration in refusing to begin to, prepare two years and n quarter ago I when the war broke out. "The appearance of the submarine in our own harbors." Mr. Roosevelt, declared, "showed that a sudden attack by them might leave us without any navy before. an>* declaration of war was made and 'remember that half the -vara of modern times have been begun prior to formal declarations of war.' " ' "Thanks to Mr. Wilson," he contin ued, "our unpreparedness in naval and military, matters is appalling and our dereliction in duty to humanity at large shocking beyond description. But our spiritual unpreparednees. thanks to Mr. Wilson, is even greater than our! physical unpreperadness. "The too proud flght doctrine is a cloak behind which the coward hides, j It has been the chief cause responsible' for the spread of the spirit of disloyalty j In the United States among those who openly or secretly believe in a dlvidod citizenship. No man will be perman-; ently loyal to a country that is too proud to fight." After quoting the president's words in regard to this country and the next war, Mr. Roosevelt said that "never have we had a greater degree of insincerity and hyprocrlsy than is contained In such a plea for re-elec tion by the president who has him self practiced the coldest and most selfish neutrality, when all these things that he 1n the abstract con demns were in the concrete committed at the expense of Belgium, of the WIFE OF G.

Renewing his discussion of foreign I policies of tho United States and speak i ing of the "vereal element" of the Re : publican party, the president declared, i "they prefer a peace that Ib produced by the methods of those who defy, of j those who brag, of those who threaten in order to establish their prowess. They have forgotten their manners. They want a peace, indeed, but they do not want a peace obtained as gen tlemen obtain It but only as braggarts obtain it," Tho president did not read a speech in advance.

"The campaign that we are now en gaged In has reached a point of cul n.ipution where perhaps it Is possible and permlsaable to view the Held and iharacteriie the result*," said Presi dent Wilson. "The fiold has been a very confused one because the forces of the opposi tion are confused. Looking on the Held as a whole, you can boc that all that Is probably disclosed on the side of the opposition Is confusion and futility. It Is not Bingular that it should be so, because they servo under no single captain. They are moving In no single din. They have no Blngle body of prin ciples. They have no single purpose In mind. It has been Impossible to con duct the campaign as If It were a reg ular battle, because so soon as we sought some section of the enemy It was found that they bad dispersed, "It has been a confusing campaign becar.se the public mind baa never been pel milted to center upon any sin gle Issue, that they cared to stand for.

Confronted with the truth, the sena ' tor knew there was no answer to* I make, and he hnd brains enough not to make himself ridiculous by at ! tempting an answer. ' The meeting was called to older by ; K. 0. Smith, who called on George Hoffhclmer to Introduce the speaker. In his introduction Mr. lloffheimer lauded the senator highly. Senator Chilton opened his address by romparlnp Wood row Wilson to Oeorge Wsahitfgton, Thomas Jeffer ! son. Andrew Jack?on and Abraham Lincoln.
