Declares That He and Progressive Party Should Never Have Affili ated Themselves With Perkins and Others Dec In a speech in the Somite upon his resolu tion for a constitutional amendment that wonld provide a single six year presidential term Senator Works of Cal since his entry into the senate with tiie Progressive Re publican faction made a strong crit of Theodore Roosevelt and the Progressive party for their affilia tion with George W Perkins and representatives of large corpora ions Senator Works that both Roosevelt and Taft deserved defeat le asserted Roosevelt when President had withheld action against lie Harvester trust with the natural result that Mr Perkins had been one ibe chief Roosevelt backers in the fight this year for the Progressive and equal s he declared that President Tart lad lost the and good will of many good people by going upon he stump against Col Roosevelt attack upon Roosevelt came in with Senator Works as that the Presidents office had used to prevent adverse action corporations are not without evidence of he effect of sieh action on np elections said Senator Tiie great Harvester trust one of he and most oppressive of its was signally favored by Mr President ill this re spect It was not prosecuted for viu of the Sherman antitrust law ordered otherwise What ilie natural result When acain a candidate W Perkins became his ardent supporter and chief financial backer was largely interested in he trust Perkins Knew by demonstration that His com mny would he safe against just pros if Roosevelt were elected an ess he should change his mind And K would much less likely change tiis cws if Harvester trust or its should lend him their support I am not saying that Mr RooLe elt acted out of improper motives n dealing with the Harvester trust ir the Steel trust He may have been satisfied that the course tu on by him was the proper and just I call attention to these in stances of presidential favor auu what them as illustrating the pov that exists in the hands of a prep dent in his first term to secure his lection to a second term Facts brought out in the sensational of campaign were cited by Senator Works o show the extent to which ind their millionaire lad to campaign contri butions He declared that privilege seeking corporations support the pub ic official who will grant them priv The investigation of campaign con lately had has expressed sonic of the darkest pases of the po history of the country he continued it has revealed the un pleasant facts that the money used Tor campaign purposes both by Re publicans and Democrats in past years was supplied almost wholly by men interested in the large corpora tions that were amendable to punish ment under the antitrust law The new Progressive party was tainted in the very beginning by pat ting itself in the hands of the same was managed and fi by promoters and trust magnates In all these cases money was contributed to secure the lection of a man who if elected wonld be entrusted with the power of determining conclusively whether or not they should be prosecuted mailer whether it was so un or not it was nothing more or less than buying immunity from such prosecution They very natur ally reasoned that the man who ac their money to secure his el would not use the power their money had given him to punish them for making that money unlawfully Works referred to the so called Harriman contribution in the campaign fund of IDOL a fund which Harriman said Roosevelt had asked him to raise but which Col Roose velt had testified was raised on own initiative It is not very material which wa right or which was said Sen ator Works Harriman received reward whether the money was rais ed for that purpose or not Suits by the Government were at that very time pending against some of his compan ies and after hU contribution they c OF MUNICH TO OUR DIVIS IOX OF SAFETY The Police Department ot Munich noted throughout the Conti lent for

country has ever witnessed Senator Works continued Doth of these candidates were over defeated They both de served defeat for this reason if for no other The conduct of Roosevelt was particularly reprehensible His vicious assaults on the president made it imperative for the latter in his es and that of his friends to neet on the stump the charges made him It was a fatal lost him he respect and

seems to have d the development of bo aeroplane is the education of the viator himself At first man did not now what could bfe done with his lew toy I remember distinctly only o far back as at Belmont Park he aviators would look up at the lags over the hangers and if they vere stirred by more than a breath of vincl they refused to take the air Nowadays a flyer must be poor in leed if he cannot manage to handle lis machine in a wind while i good many flights have been made n winds have a velocity of a nile a or greater Tlie remarkable advance of aviation herefore is due not so much o the development of the aeroplane either mechanically or as to the perfection of the motor and the education of the avla or There is no question what an of could take one of the machines made in IMS and do stunts which were not thought possible at he time the machine was constructed Aviators have learned more about the currents and tlie possibilities of their machines and have become more and more daring as time went on Furthermore as soon as compe appeared and one aviator was against another each one was goaded on and on to take greater risks This process developed the ex birdman as you see him today He is a flyer who will navigate iti my wind and will rise from and alight almost any field And the re markable part of it all is the ac are so fewin view of the large number of men flying and the enormous distance covered The death roll is discussed large because upon the addition of every new mar tyr the newspapers en tire list If this were done in case of accidents or accidents ait
