INDIANAIOLIS, , Ind., Apr. 5.
Republicans of Indiana, in State
convention held hsrc today, adopted
a platform 4nat fully upholds' the
position taken by United States Sen
ator Jievendge, and sets a pace for
the Republican platform makers of
the West during theTsoming State
and Congressional campaigns.
The tariff plank was the one fea
ture of the. platform that resulted
in a hard fight. As finally adopted,
the Republicans demand a protective
tariff measured by the difference be-
tween the cost of production at
home and abroad.
The platform indorses the admin
istration of President Toft and also
the stand taken by United States
Senator Bevendge, who is a candi
date for reelection by the next State
Senator Eeveridge, when invited
to address the convention, was given
an ovation. During his remarks h:
attacked the tariff passed by the
last Congress, and was loudly ap
plauded. CHANG LOY MAKES .
