SENATOR BAILEY AND THE
. Writing in the Louisville Courier
Journal Henry Watterson says:
According to the report in tho
Congressional Record, Mr. Bailey the
other day, in tho course of a speech
in the senate, said:
"The Courier-Journal of May 17
these things would be more persua
sive to me if they came from sources
that have always been loyal in their
support of the democratic party and
its candidates published an edito
rial paragraph that runs this way:
" 'Senator Bailey, demanding that
the magnates of the steel trust be
put in jail, votes to put them in pal
aces by voting for a tariff on iron
ore and against the old democratic
doctrine of free raw materials.'
"The old democratic doctrine of
free raw materials! How old? Old
enough, thank God, to have per
ished before this day; and yet not so
old as that It ever received the in
dorsement of the democratic fathers.
It was in a season of madness and
folly proclaimed as a democrat doc
trine; but it has long since been re
jected as a democratic heresy."
It is old enough to have been for
mally enunciated by the democrats
in the days when they made the
tariff a dominant issue, when they
made a tariff for revenue only a car
dinal party doctrine and when they
won victories on their platforms thus
proclaimed. Just when it was "re
jected as a democratic heresy," Sen
ator Bailey did not enlighten us,
and nobody else seems to know, or
seems even to have heard that It
ever was so rejected. No one, on
this occasion, appeared sufficiently
interested in Mr. Bailey's revelations
to ask his authority for declaring
that tho doctrine of free raw mate
rials "has long since been rejected
as a democratic heresy," but when a
week later he recurred to the sub
ject, Mr. Aldrich was curious enough
to inquire of him:
"Since when has the doctrine of
free raw materials ceased to be a
To which Mr. Bailey is quoted by
the Associated Press as replying:
"Since men like I have come into
power in the democratic party."
This, we presume, is adequately
illuminative. The authority that has
pronounqed the doctrine democratic
heresy and rejected it as such is Sen
ator Bailey himself not the demo
cratic party in representative con
vention assembled, but merely the
democratic party as it exists In Sen
ator Bailey and "men like I." And
when Mr. Aldrich reminded him that
every other conspicuous democratic
leader except Senator Bailey had ad
vocated the doctrine, the Texan did
not so much as hint at the identity
of "the men like I" who with him
had overruled democratic conven
tions and democratic platforms,
though In the same speech he reiter
ated the announcement that he re
pudiated so recent a democratic nlat-
form as that declared at Denver last
And by the -way, the Courier
Journal fears it is so obtuse as to
fail to understand the mental pro
cesses by which the senator takes
it to himself ais a virtue to reject
platforms of the democratic party
while discrediting the Courier
Journal for having rejected candi
dates of the democratic .party, as he
would discredit it when he says that
"these things would be more per
suasive to me if they came from
sources that haye always been loyal
in their support of the democratic
party and its candidates." For the
are or us we can not grasp the sharp
distinction which Mr. Bailey makes
between rejecting a party candidate
and rejecting a party platform.
THE TAFT ADMINISTRATION
Does President Taft know what an
impression the members of his cab
inet are making on the country?
The nation is beginning to suspect
that the Taft administration is to bo
a "business administration" In the
sense that the needs of the large
business interests are to be consid
ered In preference to the need of
moral reform in politics and en
forcement of the doctrine of equality
before the law. In other words, the
country fears that the Taft admin
istration intends to serve the
wealthy class instead of the people.
This impression has been created
by the selection for cabinet places of
corporation lawyers, unknown to the
country, by the tender of a high
diplomatic post to Fulton, who had
been repudiated by the people of his
own state, by the speech of Wicker
sham, and by the reports of the
Washington correspondents, who
who seem agreed on the point that
"big business" will run the country
while Taft sits quietly in the White
House. The character of the "tariff
revision" which congress is concoct
ing without protest from the White
House and the tales of social ex
cluslveness which come from Wash
ington do not tend to diminish .the
Since Mark Hanna's time the peo
ple have learned much, and they will
not again endure the Hanna system.
If Taft has any political sagacity,
or really intends to pursue the Roose
velt policies, he had better do some
thing, or, at least, say something to
remove the bad impression that his
administration is making.
This Is frank and friendly from
an independent republican newspaper
.which supported Taft earnestly.
