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
(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
"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. Watson is the head. 1
do not say that the Consolladtion
Coal Company Is a trust. 1 do not!
know, but the Democratic campaign j
text book said it was. I do not know i
.that Mr. Watson should be criminall> 1
prosecuted, but the Democratic cam
paign text book in effect said he!
would be. They have not kept thai
plank of their platform, and instead
they have allowed Mr. "Watson to
take hold of the Democratic party in
the state of West Virginia; to throw
Col. McGraw aside; to discharge

"Wilson Day" Should Be as the
People Have Eaten the Bit
ter Bread of Shame.
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.
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

selfish neutrality, when all these

! That the opposition to bin election isi

j fact and policy, wan the charge made'
j by President Wilson in a speech atl
Shadow Uwn this afternoon to a
throng that assembled for a Joint cele-j

row Wilson day" "and what are wei

of ine.n who take advantage of a crisis, [
i when the fortunes of men hang in un

this great nation can bo maintained
I only by the most thoughtful and con
I siderate means to settle, a question pf
I power among themselves?"
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. Although he used some
of the thoughts contained In the pro
pared speech he departed entirely from
the words and injected many new

Idea*. Tho speech was to be read at
nicotines arranged In muny cities and
many towns In celebration of Wllnon
day. He was aided by band* and per
sons carrying Hags und banners bear
Inn Inscriptions praising the president.
The largest crowd that baa assembled
here for any of Mr. Wilson's speeches
came on special trains and marched a
mile nnd a half to Shadow lawn. One
of the delegations wan composed of
Tammany Democrat)* headed by John
K. Voorhls, grand aaobem. in an In
troductory speech Mr, Voorhls spoke
of.Tammany and declared he hoped
to fe able to inarch In Mr. Wilson's
inauguration parade.
"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.
Moat of the luues at the outset have
so utterly disappeared that it is doubt
ful if they ever existed, and that be
cause of an inevitable division of coun
sels. They have no stamp of definite
policy. They suggest no line of definite
action. On the one hand the vocal ele
ments say that we have accomplished
tho purpoHo that they ' did have in
mind; that they desire peace but thoy
do not like tho way In which pouoo
wa* accomplished. "Thoy prefer u j
peace that In produced.by ms.thodB of:
those -who defy,- of' those who brsg. of
those who threaten. To establish their j
prowess they bavo forgotten their
manners. They want a peace Index,
hut thoy do not want a peace obtained
as gentlemen obtain It but only as.
braggarts obtain It.
"Wo want peace. We have a peace
founded on the definite understanding
that the United States because It is
powerful Is self-possessed; because it
has definite objects, does not need to
make n noise about them; hocausc It
knows that It can vindicate Its right
at. cny time, does not have to proclaim |
Its right In terms of exaggeration, Wc
have determined that whether we get >
the respect of the rest of the world or
not that we will deserve It by the way '
In which we act,
"On tho other hand we are told that'
the methods of peace are the methods i
of elocution and the methods of phrase
and the methods of mannors; that all
that is needed Is a certain attitude,
