FOURTH LIBERTY LOAN-PUT 'ER OVER ROOSEVELT RAPS THE i P. LEAGUE AT BILLINGS Denounces Leaders as "Anti American and Bolshevistic'* Before Large Crowd. Declares There Is Not a Pro German in the Nation That Does Not Wish Success for the Townley Movement. Billings, Mont., Oct. 3.—Speaking bo fore an audience of 10,000 people In the huge Billings auditorium this aft ernoon, Col. Theodore Roosevelt, after defining Amenlcaniam and its duties, denounced the leadership of the Non partisan league as anti-American and Bolshevistic and a menace to the Democratic Institutions of the United States. He drew attention to the crimes for which the L W. W. leaders were recently convicted and then read from a letter of the secretary of the Non-partisan league to William D. Haywood, In which the phrase "this damned war" was naed and fight on conscription and anti-spy bills was ad vocated. The colonel's words were tumultuously applauded time after tines. After speaking about tho farmers* just complaint« and declaring that they must ba remedied by either state federal action, the Colonel declared that "to Introduce stats socialism aa • relief for th suit In nothing but widespread dam age." He continued : He Was Deceived. •T have so keen a feeling about the injustice to which the farmers were ex posed here In the northwest that when the Non-partisan league first appeared 1 was iucllued to welcome It and to believe In it and I wished to co-oper ate with It. It was with real reluct ance that I was obliged to believe that the leadership that controlled it was of such a character as to threaten this country with evils analogous to those which came from Bolshevikism abroad and from L W. W.-ism at home. •'The I. W. W. leaders have been convicted of disloyalty to America by a Chicago jury. They have preached and practiced sedi tion.

D. Haywood, that tho secretary and one of the moving spirits of the Non-partisan league, wrote on April 5, 1917, Just as wo wera going to war, arid in his let ter, a copy of which I hold in my hand, he spoke of 'this damned war bulsness' and that 'I think tha fight should now be centered against spy bills and conscrip tion.' In other words, these two responsible officials of the L W. W. and Non-partisan league were proposing to fight measures to deal with traitors and make our par ticipation in the war effective. Pro-Germans For Them. "No patriotic American can afford to support either organisation and any politician who is joined up with either is discredited.

To Thooo Misled. ; "I know well that there are mul titudes of honest and upright men among the rank and file of the Non-partlsan league. Just as there are thousands of good but mis informed men In the ranks of the I. W. W. Insofar as these men have, and I believe they have, just grievances of which they com plain, It is our business actively and affirmatively to strive for the remedy of these grievances and when I say 'strive,' I mean not merely 'hot air,' but action.

It is no disgrace to have been fooled by these Non partisan league whoa even the greet Roosevelt wee admittedly deceived by them.

I have an inti mate knowledge of the farmers needs, far more than these Bolshevik Non partisan league leaders, who have no abiding Interest in Idaho or in any industry of Idaho. I realize that the fanners. like all other classes, re .juire certain legislative relief to meet the existing conditions of agriculture and of other pursuits. But they can't get relief from the MoKaigs and the Scholtzes and the Samuels. They cant get relief by following ghost dancers and Bolshevikism and Socialism. Blue l have been a farmer all my life. Roosevelt likens Towntey to Trotzky and Lenine. who worked the farmers of Russia—and traded them off to the kaiser. These Non-partisan leaders have no use for you.
