ROOSEVELT DON'T LIKE NONPARTISAN IN AN ADDRESS AT BILLINGS THE COLONEL TALKS AGAINST CLASS LEGISLATION Billings, Mont., Oct. 7.— America cannot afford to accept the lead of any party, nor of any organization calling itself Nonpartisan, but really acting as a party, which is not first and foremost American, and nothing but American, declared Colonel Theo dore Roosevelt here Saturday night in an address in which he outlined various phases of the war and its many sidelights. "There are real and grave causes for complaint among the farmers here in the Northwest," the former presi dent continued as he read from a paper figures which purported to show discrepancies in connection with the prices paid for wheat and in freight rates, but he asserted that "many of the remedies proposed are not only false, but mischievous, and very grave harm may be caused by the character of the agitation con ducted by some of the men who pro fess to be seeking these remedies. "To introduce slate socialism as a relief for these conditions would re suit in nothing but widespread dam age.

"But I emphatically disbelieve in any party, and especially that party calling itself a Nonpartisan party, which organizes a single class against other classes. I object just as stren uously whether such a political or ganization claims to be in the interest of merchants, lawyers, farmers or wage earners. Threatened I. W. W.'ism "When the Nonpartisan league first appeared I was inclined to welcome it and it was with real reluctance 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 I. W. W.'ism at home. "Finally, the meeting of the league in Minneapolis about a year ago was turned into a ghost dance of the Huns-within-our-gates, and it be came evident to me, that insofar as they dared the most prominent lead ers of the league were playing the game of sedition and disloyalty and that they were seeking to acquire power by pandering to, and influenc- ing the base spirit of greed and envy and ignorance and class hatred. They were trying to do what Lenine and Trotzky have done to Russia. Leaders Are United "The I. W. W. leaders have been convicted of disloyalty and yet, it was to the head of this organization, W. D. Haywood, that the secretary of the Nonpartisan league wrote on April 5, 1917, a letter in which he spoke of 'this damn war business.' "There isn't a German abroad, or a pro-German at home who does not wish success to the Nonpartisan league as at present controlled, and to the I. W. W." WAR REVIEW (Continued from page 6) made. Savagely attacking the German lines in Belgium, British, French and Belgian forces have captured lloulers and carried their lines far toward Courtrai and Thourout. In reports from the front there are .indications that the German lines have been pierced and that the enemy is re treating rapidly. On the other extreme of the battle line American troops have carried their lines well past the Kriernhild position west of the Meuse river. They are now holding a front that runs north of Cunel, north of Romagne and thence northwesterly to the vicin ity of St. Georges at which village it turns to the southwest and meets the French lines at Grand Pre. French and Italian forces are slow ly sweeping the Germans back out of the Laon salient. They are now well to the east of the Laon-La-Fere railroad and have kept up a steady pressure against the enemy along the Oise valley to the northeast of La Fere. The allied blow in Belgium appears to be one which may have a direct bearing on the course of the mighty battle that is raging over the battle line from Dixmude to Verdun. The progress made against the Ger mans on the first day of the offensive seems to indicate that it is possible for the allies to press eastward and outflank both the German submarine bases to the north and the whole Ger man line to the south. The railroads by which the sub marine bases are supplied are in great danger as the allied advance carries the line nearer and nearer to Ghent. It is rumored along the Brit ish front in Flanders that British monitors have entered Ostend but this report is without confirmation. Should it prove true, however, it is possible that forces may be landed in the rear of the Germans still holding the lines between Thourout an dthe sea. Subscribe for the Graphic. The coats are Silvertone, MAIN ST. PEACE BY BATTLE The great majority of the mem bers of the House and Senate and the 1-ufclic generally in 'Washington, and throughout this section of the Coun try give very little credence to the good faith of the peace proposal of October sixth of the Imperial Ger man Chancellor, Prince Maximilian of Baden. Much disappointment has been expressed at the President's pre liminary reply of interrogatories to the German Chancellor under date of October eighth. It was expected that the President Would have promptly, clearly and forcefully replied to the Chancellor that no armistice on land or sea or air would be entered into by the United States and her Allies until the Imperial German Govern ment laid down her arms in uncon ditional surrender, prepared to make restitution and reparation for the wrongs, injustices and outrages the insane desire for worldwide domina tion of her War Lords and their fol lowers has brought upon Belgium, France and their Allies since the be ginning of the war and prepared to give and keep guarantees against fu ture attacks and outrages upon neighboring nations, desiring to live and follow the ways of peace. While the interrogatories of the President clearly invite further dis cussion, no important advantage for the Allies can be seen in this, at this time, except that this discussion may tend to weaken the morale of the Ger man people in their support of the war. On the other hand, on this lat ter view, Mr. Samuel L. Gompers, President of the American Federa tion of Labor, who is now with the American Labor Commission in Rome, cables from there, that the German Chancellor's peace offer of an armis tice is nothing more than another trick of Germany to weaken the soli darity of the Allied democracies and their will to fight on to final and com plete victory for the destruction of imperialism, militarism and autocracy Should the German Chancellor re ply that Germany will accept the peace terms and principles stated by the President in his address of Jan uary eighth last, and in his subse quent addresses, and that Germany will, if permitted to do so by the Al lies, at once withdraw her armies from the soil of the Allies, and fur ther state in his reply that he speaks for the German people as well as for the Government of Germany that has thus far conducted the war, even then an armistice on land and sea and air, at this time, will be greatly to the advantage of Germany and to the disadvantage of the allies. If Germany is now given an op portunity, through an armistice, to withdraw, without molestation, all of her troops to her own soil and the soil of her allies, she will then, with shortened battle front and with her armies intact, be in position lightly Let Us Interest You In Our Moderately Priced Suits and Coats An exception al group of cleverly styl ed garments.

An armistice at this time will per mit Germany to bolster up her waning military strength to an extent that will enable her under threats and power to further prolong the end of the war, to demand and secure from the Allies, in the final peace treaties, terms and conditions that neither, in justice nor in humanity, should be granted to her. An armistice at this time would save Germany from the thorough and decisive defeat the armies of the Allies are now rapidly carrying to her upon the battle fields. An armistice, at this time, with Germany, would, in all proba bilities, terminate in a comprised peace or a peace without victory. Through an armistice at this time, the great object of long enduring peace, for which the Allies have been contending, would be in danger of being lost. Through an armistice at this time, followed by peace terms, Germany would be almost certain to be left in a position to threaten the peace of the world for the next gen eration or two, and, at no great dis tant time, hurl the world into anoth er such tragedy of woe and destruc tion as she began and has carried on since August, 1914. Germany's multiplied crime in planning and beginning the war, the barbarous manner in which she has conducted it, her constant disregard and expressed repudiation of her treaties and solemn agreements, her cruel and wanton starvation and mur der of civilian inhabitants in occu pied countries, have destroyed her moral standing in the world. No rep resentations or promises that her Chancellor makes can be depended upon while her armies and her mili tary organization is unbroken. Only after she is decisively and over whelmingly defeated in battle and her armies forced to lay down their arms, can she be treated in a way and in a manner that will insure a just r.nd long enduring peace among the peoples of the world.
