"There have always been two great
parties who have elected delegatea to

"One- of -these has already aelected Ita

It waa one of tha quietest and most

ferrlng to Root's peroration the orator
quoted from Roofs speech at the Cooper
Union la New Tork In October. 10J. in
which Root said "the tariff on a whole
haa worked well" and that "it U better
to endur some slight inequalities for a
time than to Incur -uncertainty and dis
turbance In business which results from
making changes." Williams said ha
had heard that the president in his po
litical tour In the west in the spring of

ject In the identical language.
"Verily." aald Williams, "two souls
with but single thought, two speeches
tnat reaa like one, and that .single
thought if harmoniously expressed is not
to force a single special Interest to take

Williams quoted ' Root's temporary
speech In which he aald that the Repub

The speaker then sarcastically went
over a list of scandala In past and pres

The speaker laughed at Root's state

aald. "that the pei capita of circulation
