Moreover, exper- ience has taught the people of this district that division along party lines spells defeat for any except the ma- chine representative on the Republi- can ticket and a tendency toward unity is becoming more pronounced at each election. Should that unity grow into determination on the part of the independent voters during this campaign, we can say good-bye Mr. Emerson on Wednesday morning, No- vember 4. Mr. Stevens, though the defeated candidate for the office in the Repub- lican primaries, is still a staunch Re- publican. He is true to the doctrines of Lincoln and believes that the great- t, t j,tod to the greatest number can e ) t st effected through the G. 0.

Roosevelt Spoke For An Hour Thursday Evening With His Usual Force And Vigor- Candidate Davenport Also Giv- en a Cordial Welcome The political campaign opened in Essex county last week, the first in the field being the Progressives. Frederick M. davenport, the candi- date for governor, accompanied by ex-President iiooseveit and other in- fluential members ol the party left New York city for a four-weeks' tour of the state. The party arrived in Ticonderoga Thursday at noon and reached Piattsburgh the same night. They travelled by automobile stop- ping at the various villages along the lake shore long enough for Col. Roosevelt to deliver short speeches. It is estimated that over 8000 voters in this county turned out to hear the distinguished American. Unfortunately the itinerary could not be arranged so as to bring these leading progressives into this section, but it is hoped that plans may be per- fected for their presence here at a later date. On Thursday Col. Roosevelt ad- dressed at the Piattsburgh theatre, -ne of the largest political gather- ings over assembled in Pluttsburgh. He was in fine form, apparently as \fine as a fiddle,\ and spoke for an hour In. his usual voice without strain. He was greeted with long contin- ued applause when no rose to ^pe^^k and during his speech. In passing through Ks?e\ tounty, six meetings were h<;kl, hut many places wore passed whe-v ;x.up!e as- sembled to see Roose'-'Wt, but where stops were impossible. Ac Whallons- burg a large cro'-vd \va> asse«nl»kd and an urgent request for a stop was made, but the party wa-_; obliged to pass through without stopping to speak. Several times afterward Roosevelt expressed regret at not being able to stop. The party- left Fort WiHia>u Hen- ry early on the yacht of David Wil- liams and were taken to the latter's hotel at Roger's Rock, Lake George, whence they were conveyed by auto- mobile to Ticonderoga. There Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Richards entertained the party at an early luncheon. Roosevelt Addressed Workingmca At 12 o'clock the Colonel spoke to a large meeting of working-men, sev- eral hundred in number, assembled to meet him at the noon hour. Af- terwards the speakers addressed a large audience in the hail which was crowded to the doors. Then the trip was continued to Port Henry where the meeting was presided over by Hon. Frank S. Wi- therbee, the noted Republican lead- who introduced Colonel Roosevelt and spoke warmly in welcoming him. While disclaiming to be an adherent of the Progressive party Mr. Wit.hor- bee very gracefully asked the warm- est kind of a welcome for the dis- tinguished visitor, which he and the entire party received at the hands of the Port Henry people. At Westport, Library Square was filled with a large crowd from the vicinity and from as far away as Elizabethtown and Lake Placid.

Mr. Davis now has the sole agency for Lake Placid and will call on you for your orders. Yours sincerely, GEO. H. DONAH presided. Essex and Willsboro fur- nished large meetings. An especially successful meeting was held at Keeseville where a large crowd was gathered. Here W. W, Schefmerhorn the prominent Progressive farmer of Au Sable, presided and introduced the speakefs. Hits at Boss Rule and Graft The Colonel's Plattsburgh speech was addressed mainly to the boss is- sue and to the need of meeting chan- ged conditions in politics, being free from personalities except as he re- peatedly hammered Barnes and M phy by name apparently very much to his own satisfaction and the jpy of his audience. Left alone at th< present time in sole possession A thi issue of boss rule and graft ?he seems inclined to make the most of it. Times change and practices must change to meet them, he said; where- as we fought the revolution with flint locks and the civil war with percus- sion caps, now we must fight with machine guns. The political see-saw, according to the Colonel, is an imaginary plank laid across the shoulders of the peo- ple on one end of which is perched the Murphy machine, and on the oth- er the Barnes machine. When one goes up the other goes down and vice versa, the people being permit- ted to shift the weight to the other leg when one g'ets tired. He let Candidate Whitman, by name, alone mainly, except for the inference that the Barnes machine having brought Whitman through the primaries, must stand for him and he stand for it. One of Roosevelt's most character- istic sentences was \Never fight if you can possibly help it. But when you do fight, strike hard.\ Senator Davenport Senator Davenport, the Progres- sive candidate for Governor made a logical and intelligent speech in which he referred to the paramount issue in this Congressional district, viz: State development of water po- wer as propounded by Progressive candidate for Congress, H. D. liad- ley. Senator Davenport stated that he favored development, for and by the people an.) the use of the powers in the localities possessing thorn.
