President at a time when our Nation is engaged in the most stu pendous and perilous war in our history He made a rabid politi cal stump speech in which he held President Wilson up to the pub lic scorn and ridicule in which he said that our President was a Czar last in war first towards peace long may he He nri ovPiOGiriorii wont oil th way to his hearers to dis trust disbelieve and torepudiate Woodrow Wilson And Roose velt made that speech at the most critical time in Americas his tory He argued with heat and vituperation against our great President whom he characterizes as a man of selfsufficient ig Roosevelts speech from beginning to end was a speech of criticism and abuse of Woodrow Wilson the President of the United States and he made this intensely bitter attack on Presi dent Wilson at a time when over two million American soldier boys land and over a half million American boys on the ships ol our great navy are all fighting and dying to uphold the honor of America to uphold the hand of President of the United States and to carry the glorious Stars and Stripes into Berlin At such a time did Roosevelt choose to attack President Wil son And Avjiat it all about Was it because Theodore Roosevelt aspired to be the Republican candidate for President in 1920 or was it because President Wilson recently asked the American people to back him up for Democrats for Con gress next Tuesday November 5 This same Mr Roosevelt Avho noAv raises such a great hue and cry arid excoriates President Wilson Avhile running for gov ernor of NBAV York on the Republican ticket in 1898 made this argument for the election of a Republican Congress to support President McKinley after the SpanishAmerican Avar had been actually Avon Remember that Avhether you will or not your votes this year will be viewed by the nations of Europe from one standpoint only They Avill draAv no fine distinctions A refusal to sustain the Pres ident this year will in their eyes be read as a refusal to sustain tha war and to sustain the efforts of our peace commission to secure the fruits of war Such a refusal may not inconceivably bringabout a rupture of the peace negotiations It will give heart to our defeated antagonists it will make possible the interfer ence of those doubtful neutral nations Avho in this struggle have Avished us Roosevelt argued in 1898 for a after the SpanishAmerican Avar had actually ended The Avar Avith Ger many is not ended Millions of our finest and bravest boys are the thick of the fight and WoodroAv Wilson our great President asks for the same unity of command in America that I has served to bring victory to the armies of the Allies under the supreme command of Marshal Foch Is it because President Wil son now asks for a Democratic Congress that Roosevelt so bit erly assails him Do you believe that after reading Roosevelts appeal for a Republican Congress to back McKinley in 1898 Roosevelts partisan purposes are too plain for further WoodroAv Wilson is acclaimed by th popular voice of the world as its leading statesman WoodroAv Wilson has sofar led this country in the Avar with an efficiency that the great German general staff might envy A mighty army raised as if by magic i superequipped with all that an army needs has turned the tide in France A great navy helps our Allies to control the The Avhole world noAv turns to America and its great leader for guid ance The United WoodroAv Wilson has saved the Allied countries from defeat and President Wilson and the American people must be paramount in the settlement of the problems of this Avar and the peace when it follows And at this critical time is the President to be repudiated and the impression given to Germany that in spite of the Avar there are many in America Avho do not favor the policies of Wilson Avhich today are i in process of crushing out autocracy and all future Avars Oppo sition to President Wilson means encouragement to Germany and a consequent prolongation of the Avar One thing at a time The great problem of today is to end the world and party ambition must wait In such a crisis it was not only the right but also the high and imperative of the President to crush aside any scruples of taste or any tradition and appeal straight to the people And the American people will back him up too The American people are determined that they shall have one reward and one reward only for their enormous efforts and sacj They are determined that the Avorld shall be made safe for democracy and that the chief figure in the Peace Conference shall be that of the President of the United States that the voice of compelling authority shall be the voice of the people of the United States The people know their President They trust him Nobody can make them believe that he aspires to be a tyrant and a nautocrat They Avill give him cheerfully every addition of temporary power and authority he asks because they IOIOAV Bright well that all that poAver and authority Avill be used to obtain a just peace that will be permanent so far as human prescience can make peace permanent and above all else that all that power and au thority will be inflexibly exercised to make safe the rights and liberties of every people great or small under the skies of God Americans your sons are backing the President with their bayonets i NOAV let us back him up Avith our ballots Vote
