Boss System The speaker discussed the republi can and democratic parties the boss system and special interests say ing among other things At the present moment notorious bosses are in the saddle of both old parties in various important states which must be carried to elect a president Neither of the old parties nominees for president can escape obligation to these oldparty bosses nor shake their practical hold on many and powerful members of the national legislature Under this boss system no matter party wins the people seldom win but the bosses almost always win Continuing his discussion of parties Mr Beveridge said The south has men and women a genuinely progressive and others as those in Yet for sincere the begin progressive When the history of Mr Cascaden arrived home after a I nng of

country wellknown reasons these and honest southern progressives and reactionaries vote together in a single party which is neither progressive nor reactionary They vote a dead tradition and a local fear not a living conviction and a national faith They vote not for the democratic party but against the republican party They want to be free from this condition they can be free from it through the national progressive party The root of the wrongs which hurt the people is the fact that the Peo ples government has been taken away from them Their government must lie given back to the people And so
