Springfield. 111., Oct. 21.—(AP)—
This capital city of Illinois shouted a
noisy welcome to Governor Franklin
D. Roosevelt on the arrival of the
Democratic presidential nominee in
the downtown section today to deliver
a campaign address and visit Abra
ham Lincoln's tomb.
The special train bearing Roosevelt
and members of his campaign party
arrived here at 1:05 o’clock. CST.. this
morning. The governor was scheduled
to remain here until this afternoon,
when he will leave for St. Louis,
where he will speak tonight.
Charles of Republican “intimida
tion.’’ promises of aid for the coal
mining industry and the farmer, new
pledges to seek added revenue by
legalizing beer—these were campaign
weapons of the Democratic presiden
tial nominee today.
Speeding out of Indiana, which he
hailed as “not even In the doubtful
class,” he expressed last night a de
termination. if elected, to undertake
“stabilization” of the coal industry by
“common sense” methods.
To the crowds swarming about the
observation platform of his special
train at Terre Haute, he declared he
felt “very strongely” that a new ad
ministration in this country will bring
back the level of farm prices and can
do much to aid the coal industry.”

Mr. Hoover is going ot be defeated
and indicate it plainly in their at
titude toward Democrats in Washing
ton," Mr. Pou said. “For the first time
in years a Democrat can go to the
offices of Republican department
heads in Washington and get a hear
ing and some consideration. For they
realize that after March 4, 1933, they
are going to be on the outside look
ing in. instead of on the inside look
ing out.
"An air of defeat and futility is to
be found everywhere In Washington
among the Republican officeholders,
and the old high and mighty attitude
towards the public, and especially to
ward Democrats, has disappeared en
tirely. The realize that in a few more
months they are going to be sup-;
plianls at the feet of Democratic of
ficials and that it is time right now
to get down off their high horses.”
Others who have been in Washing
ton recently corroborate the impres
sion gained by Mr. Pou, and report
that most of the Republican officials
and office-holders there indicate by
their attitude that they have already
given up hope that Mr. Hoover will be
re-elected and seem to be taking it
for granted that Mr. Roosevelt will
be elected.

equality, humanity falls wider aptrt
