In nominations and elections and social and Industrial Justice were the lext of a speech delivered here today Theodore Roosevelt. The Progressive candidate also contrasted his attitude toward the Progressive platform'with that of Governor Wilson toward, the Democratic platiorn! as "expressed in the'hitter's speech of acceptance. Whereas Governor Wilson stated thm the platform is not a program, Colonel Roosevelt declared that the Progressives treated their platform as a, program "and a contract which shall scrupulously fulfil if the people gtv-e us "power." Colonel Roosevelt said in part: "Men and women 61 Massachusetts, and on the platform on which I stand) make the same ap- peal of serious and sober purpose to ihei'women as well as the men.
