Such Is Roosevelt's Prompt Reply to Question "How About

Boston, Aug. 17. In a bristling In

President Taft as out of the running In

colonel was asked by one of tha crowd:

"I never discuss dead Issues."
The crowd let out a whoop of approv
al while Roosevelt stood grinning.
Throughout his speech ha did not men

speech was devoted to a reply to Wil
son's assertion, In his talk before the
New Jersey farmers this week? that he
could not understand the progressive
platform. V

Roosevelt pitched Into Wilson, cynic

confessed that he had not read his own
party platform. "He doesn't need to
read tne uemocratic piatrorm, ' ex
claimed the colonel. "It won't be adopt

Replying to Governor Wilson's criti
cism of the length of the Progressive
platform, the colonel said:
"As a matter of fact. It Is of almost
the exact length of his own platform.
The difference is that our platform
states explicitly and definitely what we
Intend to do on the vital questions of
