Woodrovv Wilson has refused emphatically to accept contributions to
his Campaign Fund from the Interests, from corrupting influences, from
any questionable sources.
He has given us, the Democratic National Committee, to understand
that he will go into the White House with clean hands or not at all.
Who Is Getting The Money
of The Trusts?
So Jure has been Wilson's stand, M well known his Incor
ruptible purpose, that no private interests have dared to
approach either our candidate or his committee.
We have not been offered a penny by the trusts, and
we certainly have not solicited a penny (nun them. The
money of the Interests is being Spent against Wilson. No
matter fur whom we need not discuss that here it is nw
common gossip that the money power of the nation is being
used in an attempt to defeat Woodrow Wilson.
What Is a "People's Campaign?"
We are addressing ourselves Id the real freemen of
America, the upright, Progressive Voters of the country
whn arc doing the work of the nation and not the work of
trusts and losses.
We realize that the salvation of every righteous cause
rests with you.
Often this cry of a People's Party or a People's President
is raised by the very fore, s we seek to defeat and whom we
must and will defeat. But look to our standard and our
standard bearer and decide yourself as to which is the
People's Campaign and must, therefore, be fought with the
Woodrow Wilson Has Clean Hands
Woodrow Wilson is the cleanest man in national politics
He came of illustrious forefathers, who laid by blood and
heredity the foundation of a future President through gen
eration after generation of upright record.
If Wilson is to be elected it must be by clean money and
there is only one source of such money from the voters of
the country who realize the importance of having a govern
ment uninfluenced by the almighty dollar.
Wilson's hands are clean.
Will you uphold them?
How Much Money Will You Give?
How Much Can You Raise?
There are big campaign expenses to be met if we are to
win on Election Day in November. We must tell the voters
of the country abo rt Wilson, what he is, what he has done
We must show them his record. We must show them his
platform. We must point out to them the features ot his
platform which mean so murh to his nation. This great
work will cost a lot of money. We must meet the usual
heavy toll necessary to present a platform and a candidate
to a hundred million.
Your dollar, your in, your 110, your 20 is needed. And
don't mistake we want the man who can only afford the
one dollar. We need him. We need the woman Who can

"The new party pledges itself to so
cial and industrial Justice and specific
ally to 'work unceasingly for effective
legislation looking to the prevention of
occupational dlBeases, overwork, invol
untary unemployment and other In
jurious effects incident to modern in
duatry,' but now here in that
long and comprehensive platform
can there be found one word
approving the fundamental right ot
labor to organize or even recognizing
this right without which all other
grants and concessions for Improve
ment of the condition of the working
men are futile. The platform promises
social and Industrial Justice, but does
not promise industrial democracy. The
I justice which it offers is that which
I the benevolent and wise corporation
j Is prone to administer through its wel
; fare department. There Is no promise
of that justice which free American
worklngmen are striving to secure for
themselves through organization. In
deed, the industrial policy advocated
by the new party would result in the
denial of labor's right to organize.
"The new party Rtajsdfl for the per
petuation and extension of private
monopoly from which the few have
ever profited at the expense of the
many and for the dethronement of
which the people have. In the past,
fought so many valiant buttles. That
cursed product ot despotism, the new
party, proposes to domesticate in our
republic, proclaiming, 'We do not fear
commercial power.' Certainly organ

great trusts which should teach all
men that commercial power may be so
great that it is the part of wisdom to

Louis D. Brandeis before the conven

Of Supreme Importance.
He urges a careful study of the new
party platform, particularly its effect
Upon labor, noting not only WHAT IT
CONTAINS, but WHAT IT OMITS,
adding, "When you make that exami

significant omission and that this skill

Labor Record of Trusts.
Mr. Brandeis then lays bare the la
bor record of the trusts, declaring that
"great trusts the steel trust, the sug
ar trust, the beef trust, the tobacco
trust, the smelter trust and a whole
troop of lesser trusts have made the
extermination of organized labor from
their factories the very foundation
Btone of their labor policy. The abill
; ty to defeat labor's right to combine
seema to have been regarded by the
trust magnates as a proper test of the
efficiency of their capitalistic combiua
Mr. Brandeis shows that in 1899.
during the Colorado smelters' strike,
the American Smelting and Refining
company closed its mills where the
strikers had been employed and trans
ferred the work to other mills, thus
breaking the strike. The Vnited States
Steel corporation had similar success
in 1901 with the Amalgamated Asso
ciation of Iron and Steel Workers.
Had the association been dealing with
competing employers the result would
have been different. The United States
Steel trust was prompt In introducing
this plan. June 17, 1901, six weeks
after It began Its operations, Its execu
tive committee passed this vote, which
was offered by Charles Steele, a part
ner of George W. Perkins in the Arm
of J. P. Morgan & Co.:
"That we are unalterably opposed to
any extension of union labor and ad
vise subsidiary companies to take firm
position when these questions come up
and say that they are not going to rec
ognize it that is. any extension of un

Union Men Not Wanted.
The result was that the bulk of
American union laboriug men lu the
iron and steel industry were made to
understand that they were not wanted
at the works of the United States Steel
corporation. Places once tilled by
American laborers loyal to their union
were given to others, and. as the Stan
ley committee found. "Hordes of la
borers from southern Europe poured
Into the United States."
Hence about M per cent, of the un
skflled laborers in the iron and steel
business are foreigners of these class
es, the profits going to the steel corpor
ation Mr. Brandeis declared that "the
Immediate and continuing result of
the steel trust's triumph over organ
ized labor has been au extensive sys
tem of espionage and repression."

In other words, governmental ex

than President Taft's (Republican) eB

President Taft's administration.
Congressman John J. Fitzgerald of
New York, a Democrat and chairman
of the committee on appropriations, Iu
addressing the house Aug. 2i, 1912, on
the subject of appropriations said.
"Thoughtful men have watched with
alarm the rapid increase in the cost of
government In the United States." He
further said that two causes seem re
sponsible for ninny present evils:
"One. the UNFAIR AND UNJUST
SYSTEM OF TAXATION by which
an undue share of Income by those
whose circumstances In life are not
considered more than reasonably com
fortable Is taken through our customs
laws for the support of our govern
ment; the other, the difficulty or lnabll
Ity to readjust our system of taxation
and to remove many taxes from the
necessaries of life, so long as the GOV
ERNMENT IS EXTRAVAGANTLY
CONDUCTED, or the instrumental!
ties provided for the conduct of the
public service are either Inefficient or
are not utilised so as to render the
most effective and comprehensive re
sults." Mr. Fitzgerald then called attention
to the fact that the Democratic party
pledged Itself if Intrusted with power
to do two things REDUCE TARIFF
i DUTIES AND RETRENCH PUB
I.IC EXPENDITURES by eliminating
1 waste In administration and the aboll
i tlon of useless. Inexcusable offices
The Republicans talk about tariff
revision, and yet when a Democratic
house in fulfilling Democratic promisee
to the people reduced the tariff, a Re
publican president vetoed the measure.
"By their works shall ye know them."
Democrats In every state of the
Union should organize and prepare
for polling a record breaking vote Nov.

how certain victory seems, overconfl
dence is always dangerous.
