Says Leader Are Necessary, But Not Bosses Criti cises Supreme Court. SAYS LINCOLN AND TAFT DID SAME THING Syracuse, X. Y., Sept. 17. Theodore Roosevelt returned to the defence of his new nationalism today, as "was specific ally indicated in the title of his address at the state fair here "The New Na tionalist and the Old Morality." "The new nationalism," he said, "means nothing but an application to new condkions of certain old and funda mental moralities. It means an invita tion to meet the new problems of the p'resent day In precisely the spirit in -which Lincoln and the men of his day met their new problems." To his critics no put this issue: "Is any party -willing to take the other side of the proposition's of which complaint is made? "If so, it "would be a good thing to have the issue before the people, for In the end the people would most certainly decide In favor -of the principles em bodied in the new nationalism, because otherwise this country could not con tinue' to be a true republic, a true de mocracy." t ( Criticises Supreme Court. The speaker followed with a justifi cation of his attacks on the supreme court of the United States. He cnose two arguments one, that iri his criti cisms he had merely echoed the mi nority opinions of the court itself, the other jhe had illustrious precedent the example of Abraham Lincoln, who, he said, had been far more outspoken than he himself had ever been', and the ex ample of president Taft from whose utterances 15 years ago in favor of pub lic criticism of the courts he quoted. "Take for Instance," he continued, "what I said in reference to late de cisions of the supreme court. One de cision was in the Knight Sugar case, in which, according to the dissenting opin ion of justice Harlan, the court placed the public 'so far as national power is concerned (the only power which could be effective) entirely at the mercy of the combinations which arbitraily con trol the prices of articles purchased to be transported from one state Into an other tate. "I merely took the view which the learned justice had taken in his dissent ing .opinion. Those -who criticise me are also criticising a justice of the su- preme court, Mr. Harlan. So my critics take the position that tne people shall not be able to control the activ: t'es and management of these great corporations doing an interstate busi ness. If so, let them frankly avow tnsir position. If not let them cease their criticism." The other case mentioned was one prohibiting New York state to regulate hours of work in bake shops: and again the speaker said, had based his criti cism on a dissenting opinion within the court itself. Lincoln Was Criticized. "Fifty-three years ago." he continued, "Abraham Lincoln -was assailed far his repeated criticisms of the supreme .court in the 'Dred Scott case," As regards tnis decision he announced, not once, but again and again, that he held it to be not merely the right but the duty of citizens who felt, that judicial decisions were erroneous and damaging, loyally to abide by the decisions as long as they stood, but to try hard to secure their re SANDERSON BANQUETS WEST TEXAS BOOSTERS Sanderson, Texas, Sept. 17.

The Valentine and Sanderson baseball teams played another game this morn ing resulting in another victory for the local club. They will play again this afternoon. Interesting BincusiIonH. Yesterday afternoon's session of the ronvention was interesting. J. M. McLeese of the Carrizo Springs Javelin, addressed a fairly good audi ence and was enthusiastic enough to imbue all his hearers with the booster Fpirit. Mr. McLeese stated that within the last year his town had more tnan doubled in population. Less than one ear ago Carrizo Springs was an ob scure place without railroad facilities. Today the "town lias two railroads and AEROPLANE FORCES NEW versal; his language on one occasion being as follows: 'We do not propose to disturb the rights of property thus settled. We propose. so resisting the decision as to have if restored if we can and a new judicial rule established, upon the subject.' "He repeated this statement in slightly different language In speech after speech. Moreover he used very strong language about the decision far stronger than I dream of using or that it would be proper to use about the decisions with which I now deal. --.--.. ,.: ..i-... -c r v.5o fiVit and dutv to Bill ni VICtt uo CU WJ l-D--- if I call attention to an erroneous decision , which vitally aitecteu iue xi&uu . people, Is, I think, entirely sound. At any rate if I have erred, in com menting as I have commented upon the decisions in question, I err in company with Abraham Lincoln. The criticism of me is perhaps well summed up In the following speech of an eminent public man: 'He makes war on the de cisions of the supreme court.

Mr. McFarland is of the practical kind of boosters, as he is one of the main spirits that nas developed the famous Uvalde section. Last nighta W. J.

FIREWORKS IN A RAINY SKY Rain has played havoc with the cen tenary celebration in Ciudad Juarez, but an accumulation of postponed events will occur Sunday, when governor Jose Maria Sanchez, of Chihuahua, will ar rive and participate in the inaugura tion of the now statue of Benito Juarez at 3 a. m. The rain of Friday, and riv ers of mud in every street of the Mex ican city caused postponement of the pageant of soldiers and school chil dren, which was booked for Friday aft ernoon. Also the program of oratory and music to have been held in the plaza was postponed. However, the newly improved Constitution plaza was crowded all during the afiternoon and night, and a continuous band concert was in progress until a late hour. The display of fireworks was also made last night, the city shooting rock ets into the heavens in defiance of the clouds continuance hindrance of the festival. The crowJs of celebrators threw confetti about the plaza, and all was in festive, though muddy attire. Today little is scheduled, it being a timo of rest in preparation for the big events of Sunday. From the time gov ernor Sanchez arrives on the morning National railway train until midnight, there will be something doing. The pageant will be held in the morning, escorting the governor from the sta tion. At 12:30, the banquet to the gov ernor will bs held in hotel Porfirlo Diaz, and at A oclock in the afternoon the women of the cities' will entertain at a tea in the patio of the customs house. Both events are invited af fairs to a limited number "of guests. Inclement weather also stunted the celebration of Mexicans in El Paso. At the smelter Friday night there was to have been a ball but there was none. The dancing pavillion was too damp for dancing, but a program of patriotic speeches, music and recitations en tertained a large crowd. There was a dance, however, at Maya hall on Okla home avenue. A group of young women dressed in the national trl-colors of Mexico, sang the national hymn, and there were speeches.

MURDERERS' PLANS FAIL COMPLETELY Shoot Man and Put Him on Railroad Track JBut Train Misses Him. Roswell. N. M., Sept. 17. The scheme of three or four Mexicans to murder Romano Martinez, one of their country men, at Malaga, south of Carlsbad, and to put the blame on the railroad com pany and bad whisky, failed utterly. Martinez, aged about 30 years, was shot with a shotgurt and his head badly bruised. He was then placed on the track by his assailants, and a guitar and a jug half full of whisky placed by his side, to create the appearance that he was drunk and had been run over by the train. The man sprawled into the middle of the track and the train passed over him without touching him and he was not mutilated. He was taken to Carlsbad for medical attention and revived consciousness and gave the names of .three or four Mexi cans who were his assailants. Sheriff Stewart and deputies are scouring the country for the accused men. Martinez will very probably re cover. The guitar was smashed by the train, but the jug of whisky was not broken. 13 BALLOONS IN ENDURANCE TEST Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 17.
