"Who can tell what Republican or Democratic principles are today?" Mr. Beveridge said. "The word 'Republi can' means one thing in Wisconsin and the opposite thing in Pennsyl vania; the governor of Connecticut and the governor of Washington are both Democrats, yet they are farther apart than Speaker Clark and Sena tor Root. "An Iowa Republican is a stranger among Massachusetts Republicans; a Nebraska Democrat is an alien to the Democracy of New York. The two. old parties are nothing more than groups of warring factions. Thelx* platforms are jumbles of meaningless, compromises." Mr. Beveridge reviewed the pro* gram of the Progressive party and de clared that it would end sectionalism and "thus fulfill Lincoln's dearest dream and noblest purpose." "That this reformation of Ameri political parties has been made possible," he continued, "Is due to our great leader. Larger even than, his other mighty deeds—deeds which had made him the foremost living statesman of the world—is the found ing of the liberal party of America.
