Lincoln, Neb., April Rob- ert M La Follette, on the firwt of a five-day campaign in Nebraska, trav- ersed the southeast river counties of the state almost to the Kansas line and then doubled back, reaching Lin- coln for a meeting. He made four set speeches, besides nearly a score of short talks at the different places. "The rule of the few must end and the whole people must have a was one of the frequently reiterated statements of Senator La Follette. "The time has come for the masses to assert themselves and no longer ac- cept the dictum of leaders who serve their own selfish purpose or the inter- ests." He said he had come to Nebraska because he believed the voters of the state were progressive and no longer willing to be dominated by the inter- est. He made only indirect references to President Taft and Colonel Roose- velt, but said he was in the presiden- tial fight to stay, because he believed it was necessary for some one to bat- tle for progressive principles. In his speech here before a crowd which filled the Auditorium Senator La Follette attacked President Taft and Colonel Roosevelt. Roosevelt, he said, had failed in his duty as presi- dent by permitting trusts to spring up and flourish. President Taft failed to insist on the carrying out of party pledges on the tariff.

Peoria, III., April Wood- row Wilson not only boot .hamp Clark's "noun' dawg" over five Illinois congressional districts, but he took a resounding Wck with hobnailed shoes at a pestiferous pup owned by one William Randolph Hearst. Hearst he charged with being a slanderer. Senator William J. Stone of Missouri, the Clark manager, who aroused the New Jersey Democratic presidential candidate's ire by the spoken charge that he was a traitor to the Democratic party, he disposed of under the category that he was a tool wielded by Hearst. As to Hearst, Governor Wilson, be-l fore people in the arsenal at Springfield, said: "Senator Stone is coming here as an antidote to the poison I was to distribute. "The chemist who compounded this particular antidote owns a great many rt-vvspapers throughout tne United States. It has been his particular pleasure to destroy, so far as he could, the reputation of every man who spoke for the Democracy of the United States." Calls Stone's Charges False. As to Senator Stone's charges that he was a traitor and that he did not vote the Democratic ticket in 1900 and 190S he said they were falsehoods "sworn to by gentlemen who are will- ing to swear to anything." "In 1908 I voted the whole Demo- cratic ticket. In 1900 I did the same. I never voted anything but the Demo- cratic ticket in ray be asserted. On the presidential primary score the presidential aspirant was especial- ly enthusiastic. Before a dozen au- diences in halls en route, from the back end of the special train which raced from town to town in the whirl- wind finish of the preliminary cam- paign, and finally at the big mass meeting in the coliseum in Peoria, he praised the wisdom of the legislature in passing the preferential primary bill. "The conventions in Chicago and Baltimore will be the last of their he declared. "Four years from now every state in the Union will have laws of this character. The president will then be nominated by the people and not by slatemakers. Delegates will go to these conventions under strict orders from the voters and their choice will be nominated. It will mark tne end of boss rule in national poli- tics." Favors Initiative and Referendum. After giving his approval >to the Ini- tiative and referendum Governor Wil- son answered the criticisms which have been made to these reforms., "We are not tired of our institu- he stated, "but we are tired because some of the branches of gov- ernment have ceased to represent us. The initiative and referendum are in- tended to restore our control of those institutions and not destroy them." Governor Wilson severely criticised those who believe the masses of the people are not fit to rule. The governor criticised the Payne- Aldrich tariff law, scoring the Repub- licans for not giving the country a re- vision downward instead of upward in the woolen and cotton schedules. He gave it as his opinion that this government was not ready for the hands of trustees, as some public men of the day seem to believe. Governor Wilson said that while he would like to believe that the issue of the present campaign is one of princi- ple and not personality he was forced to concede that the voters must se- lect good men for office and take less heed of theories and political creeds which have no concrete form.
