EIGHT PAGES* PBICS TWO GK9TS. HOCH AT HIS BEST GOVERNOR XADE ELOQUENT AND CONYINCING ADKESS LAST NIGHT. HUNDREDS TURNED AWAY :»AJESTIC THEATER WOULD NOT HOLD THE CROWD THAT (^AJIE. Spealicr Touched Up Mr. Atwood on Mr. Taffs Religion—Appralotl fo First YotiTS. Because every foot of silting and standing: room was talten up long b('- fore the Republican meeting. at the Majestic theatre opened last night, fully 200 people wore denied tho n\y- poriuuity of hearing a convincing and eloquent address by Gov. E. \V. Ilocli. A few evenings aso John Atwood. tl:o brilliant Democratic attorney of Leavenworth, spoke in the same place and faced a good house. But no such throng heard his interesting add^e.•^s as attempted to press inside the wal's of the building to hoar the governor last night. Tho meeting was to open .at eight o'clock, but at 7:?.0 nearly every on»» of the more desirable soats .wa.= taken- and long before the speaker was introduced, every seat wf :S taken and tho aisles and vostihult s were packed. Hundreds who came later, unable to get wiihin hearin? distance, went home disappointed. Hov. Hoch and the Republican party have reason to be proud of last night's demonstration. At 7:30 the W. O. W. band began playins- in front of the Republican headquarters, a few minutes later marf'hing to the i boat re. After one number from the platform, the Black and Tan "quartette, composed of .\r- thur Johnson. "Hoc Toy." Herbert A\- len and Frank McDona'd. was introduced. Tho boys hav<> line voic< s and their campaign songs made a great hit. , Oovoruor Hoch was then iniroduced to the audience by r,. R. Gard. secn-- tary of the RepubHcau county central committee. Mr. Card referred to tlif governor as tVe most ournost ;iud eloquent orator in the state of K:ui.<;ax Mr. Hoch began by exprwssinr? his appreciation of tho fine turn-out. Ho h.is been Oiling many speaking onpaco- ments. some of his meetings being out doors, and he apologized for a husky voice. But tho audie\ice was so impressed with Mr. Hoch's earnestness and loffic that they took no heed of the speaker's voice, if it was impaired. For an hour and a half he snoke on the burning issues of the day from an unprejudiced and Intelli- eent viewpoint. Mr. Hoch was fre- nnoTitly annlauded during tho course of his remarks. In tho fore part of his address he took occasion to refer to that part of Air. Atwood's talk a few nights ago in whicb *tho Leavenworth attorney spoke disparagingly of Mr. Taft's Unitarian be'ief. Speaking of the matter Mr. Hoch s.iid: "I don't recall at this time of Mr. Atwood having been eneaged In religions work in foreign lauds. Per.sonally. I don't think the relislouR element should be iu- jected\ into this campaign. Wicn 1 am seloctinn: my choice of leader in some creat relictou.s movement or some churcli. ti -eu the matter of ;« man's rclluloti Is a very lnn>orta"» fndor with n >e.

He crnnteil that hi* wii» perHOiially u goml man. n elil /i 'u )•«• liuil much nupei-i for.

He rnllod th<' fi«t "»Uton nf his hearer.* to the foot f^r^t nrvnn had not stood by the same 1«sne fn two onmpniens In succession. Uo niso saM t^at Bryan could not In this campaign make any speeches he had made in his previous campaigns without considerable embarrassment. HP sopke rather sarcastlcal'y of Mr. Bryan's latest slogan. "Shall the People Pule?" ?-Tr. Hoch then took up the record o' the Repuhl'can p<irtv. He showed by statistics that under Republican administrations this country had always enjoyed prosperity, that wages •were good and that manufficturers received good prices for their products, i In emphasizing the fact that the Republican party is the party of progress the speaker introduced some : statistics that were especially striking and effective. He separated tho Republican states from tho Democratic states and cited the figures showing the amount of manufactured products and amount of wages paid in those| state.";. He said that S5 per cent of t?ie manufactured products last yearj were made in states that went Republican at the last election, the remaining la piT cent being in states that, wont Democratic. Ho also said that R7 per cent of the wages paid :n producing tho manufactured products last year were paid in states that wont;Ropub- lican at the last election, all of which showed that under Republican rule both wages and business were: excellent. This feature of Mr. Hocli's ad- dres.s was listened to intensely and was fo'lowed by loud choerinp. Toward the close of his addres.s Mr. Hocbi took up the record of the Republican parly in this state. He said that every pledge of the party in recent state campaigns had been fulfilled by enacting those pledges into laws. "W*c have given the people." said tho governor, "what thoy wanted and what we promised." In this connection he referred to tl'<? anti- pass law. tho primary lawj tho change in the manner of conducting the stato charitahlo institutions, the establisli- menl of the juvenile court, tho parole 'aw. and numerous other laws with wiich no one is now finding fault. "Pardon a_word personal." said the ffovernor. Then rising to his full height and lifting Tiis arm high above him in a strikinr gesture he declar- e.U "I challenge anyone to turn the searchlight of scrutiny on any of my public or private acts during ray ad- niinistraiion that I am asliamod of." Reviewing tho prosperity under Ro- publican rule both in tho nation and iu Kansas ho made an appeal to the votcr.^, if they desired good tlme.^ to continue, to vote for W. R. Stublis for governor and Wm. H'ow .Trd Taft for president, and suggt-sto^ while the voter was at it, ho wo we'l to vote the entire tick.-t. Referring to law onforc<'meij pecially the prohibitory law. th prnor .s.aid thai any official who not enforce the law Was unwor c!iir.euship and should be dlsfrsnchis Ml. U.> said it was not a matter of pmhiMtion. not oven a matter of tern '.H ninc<\ it was a matter of law. Mr. Hoch made an eloquent ippeai •o tho young men of the party, to vote the RcpHhli<'au ticket. He urged the tirst voters to study tho histriry of '•e i^arties and to think well of the sugKostious he had offered before rastinr their vote. Ho pleaded! with them to vote for the parly of prosperity, the party of deeds, of advancement and of civilization. ! Mr. Hoch is oniimlstic. too. He be- !;rvps thnt ^»^r. Ta^t and Mr. Stubbs will carry ih-^ siatr- by from SMOO to r .0,000. At. the conclusion of lii^ address, ""^r. Hoch said he was not a canril- dato. but he liked to s!:ake handt an': invited tho audience to comfv forward and moot hiin. A\1»en tho meetinir roko up many in iho crowd wodt for- •vnrd and shook hands with the gov- oraor. BOTH IN ONE STATE TAFT AND BRYAN ABE SPENDING WTEK IN NEW YORK.

I.T'I; unanimou.'ily re-e!ectod presi ^'t'.M •if the National Women's Christian Temperance Union. Now York. Oct. 27.—Today's political program is one of intense activity throughout New York city, and the state. Both presidenti.al candidates are hero. Mr. Taft started for the outlying subtirbs early, goipK an far up the Hudson .'w Troy. Rrj'an, beginning at throe a- m.. in the city hall park, devoted himself to greater New York after a few hours' sleep. Both gubernatorial candidates also gave attention to Now York city, Hughes coming down from Albany via the Catskill and Chanler giving atten- icn 7.-> tho ciiy and Brooklyn. .\ttorn "y Oonoral Bonaparte, Hearst tnd Sherman will also bo lir»re to- -Jight. When .Mr. Taft entered That portion -)f greater New York latK this after- loon ho found liimsolt fairly overwhelmed with engagemRnts.; Before 'he night was over h& liad; accom- olished five speeches, oaten dinner vith IftO prominent Riepublicans as he guest of Republican State Chair^ Tian Timothy L. Wooilruff, reviewed I parade, and then attended a recep* 'ion at tho Union League club. .A. dolupo of rain whicbi broike.loose inst ai. >bo '.it tlw timo that Mr. Taft -va^; r-ntering NTow York transpontino ^eetion threatenod for a time serioas- ly to iiitorf '-ro witli ihn ovoning's pro* rauiuif. I» had boon planned to roako le parado one of tho- big foatures ot he Taft demonstration and the down- tour, tlio heaviest of tho fall season -o far. continuod king enough to give ro managers ami proposed partlci* >ants some concern. At one place while Mr. Taft was ipcaking he was called upon to an« wer a question. "How about the panic. Billy?" came I voice. Mr. Taft answered by showing that Theodore Roosevelt had awakened the 'usiness moral conscience of the •ouutry and brought out that the ex- •ont nt of this moral awakening in \'ow York today was Gov. Hughes. As to tho panic, ho said, it oome I > car ago in October. Prosperity so ircat resulted, in wildcat schemes, ind consequently loss of confidence, ind then tho panic. This, ho said, vas not widr.^pread, and now rapidly (i::;appoaring. and with Republican success would speedily disappear I 'togothor. Such, ho declared, would not bo the ca.s.' with Democratic success. A MOMMENT TO HARRLSOX. 'nveiling at Indiunaii«>li>i With Ceremonies Today. Indianapolis. Ind..
