in gold. He favors the advancement of the merchant marine, develop
ment of Oriental markets, regulation of immigration, revision of the
naturalization and citizenship laws, protection of the purity of the ballot,
an Alaskan Delegate, a peaceful foreign policy, an efficient army and
navy, international arbitration protection of Americans abroad, continu
ance of the present policy with lower tariff rates for the Philippines.
