Reforms for Which Republicans Are

OREGON! AN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Nov. 22. "What rood has the
Progressive party accomplished?" asked
one of the most progressive Repub
licans In Congress, discussing: the re
sults of the recent election. Answering;
bis own question, he said:
"It set the progressive movement
back 20 years; it eliminated from publlo
life many of the most progressive lead
ers within the Republican party; it
elected a Democratic President and a
Democratic Congress by minority vote
In 1912. and re-elected a Democratic
Congress this year. Having: accom
plished these things, the Progressive
party has ceased to be a political factor
In most of the states, and in another
two years will have lost its potency
Republican Party Progressive.
A survey of the results of the elec
tion this year and the results of 1912
confirm this opinion. At the time Colo
nel Roosevelt undertook to wreck the
Republican party and build up In its
stead what he chose to call the Pro
gressive party the progressive element
was nearly strong- enough to dominate
the Republican organization, and many
of the old "stand-pat" leaders had re
tired or were about to be retired. The
Republican party had made a reputa
tion for progress; it had enacted scores
of progressive National measures, and
Republican Legislatures In many of the
states had put through laws that were
as progressive as any Colonel Roose
velt ever demanded.
Had the nght for progressive ideas,
progressive men and progressive re
forms been made entirely within the
Republican party, that party today
would be In power and the progressive
element would be dominant.
Colonel's Supporters Thrown Out.
Because the Colonel insisted on build
Ing up his third party, and because he
thought he could put the iepuDiican
party out of business, the men who
then gave him their sympathy and sup
port who had been closest to him dur
ing his term in the White House have
been thrust out of the limelight and out
of office, and the progressive strength
in Congress has been diminished, all
because the Colonel refused to make his
tight for progress within the Repub
Looking over the list of those de
feated one finds the names of Senators
Beveridge, of Indiana; Bourne of Ore
gon, Brown of Nebraska, Dixon of Mon
tana, Dolllver of Iowa (who died before
the Chicago revolt, however), Bristow
of Kansas, Burton of Ohio and Craw
ford of South Dakota. Even Victor
Murdock, the Progressive leader in the
House, went down to defeat at the re
cent election, and that sterling Pro
gressive. Glfford Plnchot, made such a
pitiable showing In the Pennsylvania
Senatorial campaign as to mark him
forever as a "dead" one, politically.
Slaughter Not Finished.
The slaughter Is not done. There
remain In the Senate two men who
aided Colonel Roosevelt, Senator Poin
dexter, of Washington, and Senator
Clapp, of Minnesota. Two years hence,
when these Senators seek re-election,
they, too, will go down to defeat, un
less they see the light and return to
the Republican party, and even if they
do they may not land, the Republican
nomination in 1916.
Senator LaFollette, also, is likely to
be retired to private life, with Poln
dexter and Clapp.- While LaFollette
was not a party to the Roosevelt third
party movement, having been a rival
candidate for the Republican nomina
tion, he was. In his prime, one of the
most forceful progressive Republicans
In the Senate, and the gubernatorial
election In Wisconsin this year, which
resulted in the election of Governor
Phillip on a platform opposed to all
that LaFollette represents, foreshad
ows the retirement of "Fighting Bob"
when his present term expires.
Real Progress Checked.
It was the Roosevelt bolt, and what
followed, that put a check to the pro
gressive movement In the United
States; It was Roosevelt who killed
the movement he professed to advo
cate, and he did this because he over
estimated his own strength and popu
larity. The progressive legislation of
the past has been Republican legisla
tion. It Is only in Republican states
that Senators were elected by popular
vote or tne people prior to the adoption
of the constitutional amendment. It
was only in Republican states that the
initiative and referendum had been
In the late campaign no candidate

and he must have awakened to the

but if he has or if he does awaken to
all this, he also will awaken to the
laot tnat he cannot be the Republican
leader in 1916, for In the two past cam

the Republican party and failed.
His own party having gone on the
rocks, he must return to the Republi

Release of Alleged ' Murderer ot
William Marsh Rice Said to Have
Been Price of Relative's Aid
In Business Enterprise.
NEW TORK, Nov. 28. District At
torney Whitman today Degan an lnves
tlgation of all circumstances attendant
on the granting of a pardon on Novem
ber 27, 1912, by John A. Dix, Governor
of New Tork, to Albert T. Patrick, serv
lng a life sentence at Sing Sing for
the murder of William Marsh Rice.
The investigation was begun after
two affidavits had been filed with the
District Attorney concerning published
statements to the effect that Joseph
Walker, Jr., a WaU Street banker, had
offered to obtain Patrick s pardon if
John T. Milllken, of St. Louis, Patrick'
brother-in-law, would Join him In a
mining deal. The affidavits filed were
made by George C. Goodrich and wife.
Mrs. Anna S. Goodrich, who related
their version of what transpired at a
meeting here among themselves and
Mr. Milllken on March 23. 1912.
Inasmuch as the statute of limita
tions would become operative within
three days. Assistant District Attorney
Delehanty, who was placed in charge of
the Investigation, was Instructed to use
all possible expedition.
Mr. Whitman announced that if the
facts warranted, after further investi
gation, the matter would be placed be
fore the grand Jury.
Ex-Governor Dix, who Is In this city,
said today that he had pardoned Pat
rick solely for the sako of Patrick's
children. He -repeated his previous de
nial of the report tnat he bad pardoned
Patrick at the request of Mr. Walker.
Mr. Dix denied that he was in New
Tork in connection with the Patrick
occupied by the British troops as a
protection against its possible use by
Germany. Some time ago a mild agi
tation was started on the ground that
the Island was leased to Prince von
Bluecher, a descendant of the famous
German commander at the Battle of
Waterloo. A wireless plant was found
there shortly after the outbreak of
the war and destroyed.
Reginald McKenna; home secretary,
explained In the House of Commons
today that a German company had
leased the Island as far back as 1889.
This company In turn leased it to
Prince von Bluecher, who, though
placing certain restrictions, allowed
tourists to land in some cases. The
island has been Inspected, Mr. Mc
Kenna said, and no evidence was found
of military preparations. The authori
ties of Germany have been asked to
take steps to terminate the lease of
the German firm.
