Tri fight should go on declares col. Bryan Indianapolis ind., oct. 18�?pausing during a vigorous Appeal for the election of governor Woodrow Wilson and the Indiana democratic state ticket we. J. Bryan read the following carefully prepared statement to a vast audience gathered on the state Capitol Lawn a we Are embarrassed in the discussion of National issues by the fact that one of the presidential candidates has been made the victim of a murderous assault. A we deplore As deeply As or. Roosevelt s supporters the act of the madman that has temporarily disabled him for Campaign work. Quot we denounce As bitterly As or. Roosevelt s supporters such a resort to violence even by one bereft of his reason. We sympathize with or. Roosevelt in hts affliction As sincerely As his supporters do and we wish As earnestly As they for his speedy recovery. A but neither he nor they should ask for a suspension of activities on the part of or. Roosevelt a opponents so Long As his friends continue to present his Side of the National issues. A the question before the country must be decided by the sane. Quot a maniac cannot be made an arbiter in such a crisis. I am surprised that the friends of or. Roosevelt should attempt to make use of this incident in his behalf. Quot it cannot be charged to the democratic party it cannot be fairly charged to any party. Quot the suggestion that the assailant was led to make the attack because of newspaper criticism is a far fetched one and even if it could be shown that an unbalanced mind was influenced by criticism it is not More just to demand a suspension of the discussion of pending problems on this account than it would be to reject religion because some one had gone insane on that subject. Quot i have been a careful Reader of the papers since last june and i in quite sure that the papers have been no More bitter in their assaults upon or. Roosevelt than the Roosevelt papers have been in their assaults upon or. Taft. Quot and neither Side has attacked the other with More virulence than both have attacked the democrats in campaigns past. A i can show you As bitter things said against my by both the friends of or. Taft and the friends of or. Roosevelt As the friends of either have said against each other. A the papers say Many things they ought not to say but i know of no party that is guiltless in this matter. Quot a nation sits expectantly by the former president s bedside hoping that the wound is not a serious one. But or. Roosevelt a supporters must not use this attack to protect themselves and their position from just criticism. Quot the Brave soldiers on a Battlefield do not use the wounded for breastworks. They stand out and give blow for blow. And so in this Campaign or. Roosevelt s supporters cannot use him As a shield to protect themselves against the attacks that May be made against the policies for which he mangling a bodies Hyde $25,? ii j. F Dryden net Jer Ley.
