President and His Party Are Tru
Progressives, and Deserve
Ex-United States Senator Charle
W. x- uiiton spoke to less tnan ihiit
students or the University last xhurs
day evening in Viiiard nail, appear
ing unuer tne auspices of the lax
Club. A number ox local Republica:
politicians also greeted the sp laker.
xiobeit Kuykendall introduced th
ex-senator, claiming that he alone ha
secured more favorable legislatio:
than had our entire present delegatio:
at Washington.
Mr. Ft*iton immediately launche
into a defense of the Republican par
ty, claiming that never in the histor;
of the United States has any admin
istration accomplished as much a
had William Howard Taft. He as
serted that the Democratic party hai
not proposed a thing that was new
but instead was hanging on to wha
had been relegated to the politica
scrap heap. He then harked back ti
the period of Hamilton and Jefferson
and traced the progressive tendenc;
of the party since that time.
Mr. Fulton defended the tariff pol
icy of the party, saying, that it alom
was responsible for the splendit
growth, great prosperity and higl
wages that now prevail in thi;
“splendid country of ours.” He attri
buted the freedom of the slaves ti
Republican principles of freedom an<
progress, and concluded this sectioi
of his address with the query, “whj
we should change parties at this
“The greatest progressive that th<
country has ever known,” was th<
manner in which he referred to Presi
dent Taft, and continued to state
that it would be a greater insult t(
the people themselves than it woulc
to the present incumbent, if Taft was
not returned. He declared, that th<
President had already won for him
self a place among the “great heroes
of the world,” and that he knew of nc
character that was so beautifully ad
mirable for his courage, nor that hac
done so much for his country, as hac
Mr. Taft.
Ex-Senator Fulton concluded his
address with a severe criticism ol
Senator Jonathan Bourne. He at
tacked him on his self seeking course
and endeavored to show that he was
not worthy of the state’s trust.

Student's Attitude on “Dry" Questioi
Will be Ascertained
Signing of the anti-liquor petition
has proceeded rapidly since last Wed
e nesday morning, according to Charle
Jvoyl, of the University 1. Ai. C. A,
vvno has been in charge on the "dry:
the various fraternity houses havi
3 been canvassed, with the result that ;
/ majority of the men have signed thi
- circulars. Those outside have beei
. slower to respond. Several student:
t have circulated the petitions upon thi
i campus, while the bulletin boards havi
been supplied with the sheets. Many
5 co-eds have signed the petitions, sonn
1 being labeled especially for them.
i Monday night all the outstandinj
i copies will be collected, the results as
certained, and published immediately
1 in the local papers, and in the press
- of the state, as indicating the stanc
i of the students on the question of sa
- loons in Eugene.
s This petition was originated by Mr
. Koyl. President Campbell had noth
1 ing to do with the request, simply an
, nouncing it at the last assembly.
’ Students of the Journalism Depart
ment are to assist in collecting re
turns of the November 5 election
, Mr. Dill, assistant editor of the Reg
j ister, has made arrangements foi
L eight students to tend to the extra tele
. phones which will be installed in the
office and to tabulate the results as
( they are received. Other students oi
I the department will collect the counts
t as they are made in the eighteen Eu
, gene precincts. Bulletins, direct from
, the wires, will be issued far the pub
lic on the bulletin boards outside.
, As a preliminary preparation, the
second year class of Journalism have
been studying in class the division oi
precincts, names of candidates, and
’! systems of blanks used.
Recognizing the fact that fraternity
1 men cannot attend meetings that com
1 mence at 7 o’clock, the Y. M. C. A,
cabinet decided yesterday afternoon
to hold the regular Thursday night
meetings from 7:15 until 8 o’clock, in
stead of at the former time.
It was thought that the men could
get to the meetings at this time, and
that the plan would eventually result
in an increased attendance. Special
notices were ordered sent to the vari
ous houses, informing them of the
change in time.
Hereafter different members of the
cabinet will preside over the meet
ings, instead of the president, as has
been the custom.
Woman’s Suffrage has a chance to
pass, if the results of interviews taken
by the journalistic department can be
taken as a criterion of public opin
The students were sent among all
classes, and the results turned in tal
lied twenty-one to sixteen in favor of
the bill. The average interview gave
but a slight majority to the bill, al
though there were a few rabid papers
on both sides.
Among the classes represented were
janitors, clerk, rancher, doctors, cooks,
drummer, barber, mail carrier, ex-sen
ator, suffragettes, and a bootblack.
The debates which are to be held be
tween the University and other col
leges this winter, and the manner of
holding the tryouts for these debates,
will be discussed by Bert Prescott at
the next Laurean meeting.
There will also be a debate on the
question: “Resolved, That the Equal
Suffrage Amendment for Oregon
Should be Passed in the Coming Elec
tion.” Carlyde Geisler and Alfred
Davies will support the question,
while Fred Hardesty and James Donald
will oppose it.
