Th* first hearty laugh came when Chairman
Bell, In - stentorian tones. said: '"**» J

idea of a Republican Governor yanking a dele

talk with him over the wire. Suddenly it struck
Mr. Bell that there was something humorous in
it and he joined in the laughter.

MAKIKG THE PLATFORM
RADICALS IX CONTROL.
Anti-In\nnciion and Tariff-for-
Revenue Planks Adopted.
fßy Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Denver, July B.— Rattled by Mitchell, Gompers
and Duncan, the labor leaders, who demand
more than the conservative members of the com
mittee are inclined to give them. th« platform
makers put in a hard day's -work, with an agrree
ment still a srood ways off at 10 o'clock to-night,
when the sub-committee was supposed to> be
ready to report a final draft to the full commit
tee. "Too much Gompers" is what the con
servative members of the sub-committee say>
when asked privately about their progress; but
the more radical members of the sub- committee,
under th*> domination of Bryan and the lead of
Governor Haskell of Oklahoma, are determined
if possible to make a platform that will be ac
ceptable to the labor leaders.
Three or four times in day a meFsage wae
pent for Mr. (Jompers. He was wanted at noon,
at .1 o'clock and again at 0 o-ciock. The sub
committee is anxious about getting Gompers to
■obocrfbe to a platform which will not drive
away old line Democrats. Of the sub-com
mittee of eighteen, only four are conservative in
their views. The confiervatives are C. P.
Thomas, of Colorado, who has witnessed at
dope range the labor troubles that prostrated
the mining industry In this state; Samuel Alt
sehuler. nf Illinois, a hard headed lawyer; Judge
Parker, of New York, and R. D. Inman, of Ore
gon. The other fourteen men are intense ad
mirns of Bryan, and will vote for anything
NEBRASKA PLATFORM FOR GUIDE.
With the Nebraska platform for a guide, the
radicate 5n the sub-committee are favorably dls
poped toward Gompers, but they do not want
to go too far. Chairman Haskell yesterday sub
mitted to his confreres various suggestions re
ceived by wire from Mr. Bryan at Lincoln. Mr.
Bryan is furnishing the ideas for the platform,
but he magnanimously allows the sub-commit
tee to change the phraseology in minor partic
ulars so lr-nR a« the sense Is not changed. Mr.
Bryan's views, the latest edition, on the anti
injunctlon plank are about the same as his
vteom displayed earlier in the Nebraska plat
form, already printed in The Tribune. They
are substantially carried out in the Xew York
platform, submitted by Judge Parker to the
sub-committee after having been prepared by
the Nixon committee of ten. Mr. Bryan has
informed Governor Haskell that the plank
should begin with the statement that the party
resent? any attempted reflection on the judiciary
of the conntry: that not only are the courts
themselves created by law, but their jurisdiction
and authority are defined by law, as well as their
rules of procedure. The position of the party
on thi? subject in the platforms of 1896. 1900
and 1904 Is to be indorsed, the further provision
being made that in contempt cases the trial is
to be before any judge oth«r than the one Issu
ing the citation, and the plank is to declare for
the re-enactment of the federal law requiring
notice to be given before such preliminary In
junctions phall issue, precisely as It is alleged
to have existed before 1878. Mr. Bryan has of
fered a still further suggest ion, to the effect
that it might be well to provide that no injunc
tion or restraining order shall remain in force
for a period longer than three days, and that
the hearing on such order shall be before two
Judges. The perplexity of the sub-committee
yesterday was over the fact that Mr. Gompers
demands that the law shall be so amended as
practically to exempt from restraint working
men, agriculturists and horticulturists. He In
sists that the Penal Code and police regulations
furnish adequate protection to society and that
a trade unionist Fhould not be enjoined for an
intention to coerce any one, but rather that he
should be absolutely unrestrained until he vio
lates the law. This Is where the "Commoner"
and Mr. Gompers clash. Bryan wanting a sugar
coated injunction law and Gompers not want
ing any at all. Mr. Bryan also believes an ex-

presslon should be made to the effect that the.
circuit and district courts should not have the
power to suspend the rights of tne states: that
the rights of appeal in such cases should He.
The members of the sub-committee have been
receiving telegrams from business men all
aro; d the country to-day protesting against
radicalism in the platform and predicting a
Democratic rout if their advice is not taken.
This flood of telegrams somewhat jarred the
committee to-day, causing them to ask Mr.
Gomp-ra troublesome questions when he was
before the committee. The radical members of
thj - mmittee try to make light of those tele
grams, saying that they are inspired by Repub
lican manufacturers, who will vote for Mr. Taft
anyway. It was expected that the final draft of
the platform would be ready for submission to
the committee at 5 o'clock to-day, but at that
hour Governor Haskell was in communication
with Mr. Bryan over the telephone trying to
bring about a compromise with Gompers. An
other adjournment of the full committee to 10
o'clock to-night was taken. In the hope that the
aub-c ;n!ttee would then be ready to report.

"I think," said Lewis KSxon just after talking
with Judge Parker, "that the New York plat
form pretty nearly fills the bill, and that the
national platform will be almost identical
with It." / (
Judge Parker said that the platform would be
completed some time before daylight.
The sub-committee appointed "to draft an In
junction plank reported a few minutes before the
committee took a recess at 7 oclock, stating
through Mr. Williams, its chairman, that the
three members had reached a complete agree
ment. He also made the announcement that
the plank had been scrutinized by the officers
of the Federation of Labor and was acceptable
to them. The plank as thus recommended takes
a position favorable to the placing of labor dis
putes on a level with other disputes and against
the courts regarding laborers differently from
other classes of citizens. There i« no require
ment for notice previous to an injunction pro
ceeding, because Mr. Gompers had said that
none would be demanded, providing there could
be a cessation of discriminations against the
The injunction sub-committee vias the first
to be appointed and its member* were busily
occupied during the day. This sub-committee
consisted of Messrs. Williams, of Massachu
setts; Parker, of New York, and Sullivan, of
lowa. Its deliberations were based on a draft
of the proposed plank made by Mr. Williams,
which, while found to be generally acceptable,
was closely scrutinized, not only by the conser
vative members of the committee, including
Judge Parker, but by the labor leaders as well.
Mr. Williams was in consultation the greater
part of the day with the labor men, who ap
peared extremely anxious that not only the
substance but the particular language of the
resolution should be satisfactory to the voters
who are said to be behind them.
DECLARATION ON TARIFF.
The sub-committee on tariff found l^ss diffi
culty in reaching a conclusion. This committee
consisted of Mesprs. PettigreV. of South Da
kota; Brown, of Nebraska,, and Altschuler, of
Illinois, and it was reported to the full sub
committee by 5 o'clock. That committee rec
ommended the adoption of a comprehensive
plank on the tariff, including, among others, a
provision for free print paper, free wood pulp,
lumber, logs. etc. No definite announcement
on the question of the Philippine tariff relative
to sugar was made by the sub-committee. Fol
lowing is the text of the pub-committee'B tariff
We welcome the belated promise of tariff re
form now offered by the Republican party as a
tardy recognition of the. righteousness of the
Democratic position in this question, but the
people cannot safely intrust the execution of
this Important work to a party which is so ob
ligated to the highly protected interests that it
postpones relief until after the election. And
we call attention to the significant fact that the
promise now made is wholly vitiated by the use
of the qualifying words under which the present
tariff iniquities have been fostered and devel-
° VTe favor an immediate revision of the tariff
by the reduction of import duties. Articles en
tering into competition with articles controlled
by trust? should be placed upon the free list;
material reductions should be made in the tariff
upon the necessaries of life, and especially on
articles competing with such American manu
factures as are sold abroad cheaper than at
home, and graduated reductions should be made
in such other schedules as may be necessary to
restore the tariff to a revenue basis
Every consideration of public policy suggests
the conservation of our woodlands and the re
moval of those import duties which put a pre
mium upon the destruction of our forests. Ex
isting duties have given to paper manufacturers
a shelter behind which they have organized com
binations to raise the price of pulp and of paper
and to impose a tax upon knowledge. \Ve there
fore demand the Immediate repeal of the tariff
on wood pulp, print paper, lumber, logs, wood
and timber, placing the same on the free list.
The committee also adopted various other sug
gestions, among them being planks demanding
the enactment of an Income tax la*, providing
for the restriction of immigration from the
Orient, denouncing what the committee termed
President Roosevelt's "perpetuation of his dy
The sub-committee spent the first half Of th»
day in discussing suggestions of Mr. Hryar. and
others relative to planks, but shortly after noon
decided that in order to make progress it would
be necessary to divide the work, and conse
quently sub-committees of the sub-CJinmittee
were appointed on various subjects, Including
Injunctions, trusts, railroads, resources of the
country/ the' tariff, etc. These minor sub-com
mittees consisted in all cases of three members
and the remainder of the day was largely spent
by them in consultations on the various sub
jects. There were, however, some question!
upon which the full sub-committee found it pos
sible to pas?, and these included the publicity
of campaign contributions, relative to which a
strong plank was adopted.
During the day the sub-committee reached a
decision that it would not insert any declaration
on th? rights of negroes. Mr, Bryan, had made
a tentative suggestion against discrimination on
account of race, but the Southern members of
the sub-committee expressed the opinion fluit
the declaration of principle* would bo more ac
ceptable in the Southern States if there should^
be no intimation of the party's attitude on this
subject. In the discussion some of the members
of the committee said there would be no objec

Probably the nearest approach to a clash was
on the subject of the courts, when Judge Parker
and Mr. Pettigrew expressed In sharp language
diametrically opposite opinions. Mr. Parker
presented a plank announcing the party's con
fidence in the federal courts, in support of which
he made a strong plea. He-had no sooner taken
his seat than Mr. - Pettigrew took the' floor In
opposition to the plank. He said that for him
self he had little op no confidence in the federal
courts, but he was willing to compromise by
leaving the subject entirely untouched, and th«
sub-committee decided to follow this course.
A decision to Ignore the question of wom»n
suffrage was reached early In the day.
THE PREAMBLE. '
The full sub-committee gave considerable at
tention to the subject of a preamble for the plat
form, and there was for a time a good deal of
rivalry between the preamble of the New York
platform and that of the Netfraska platform, the
former being chamrvoned by Judge Parker and
the latter by ox-Senator Pettigrew and others.
Ultimately the Nebraska language was accept- 1
ed because of its brevity. It reads as follows:
We. the representatives of the Democracy of
the United States, in national convention as
sembled, reaffirm our faith in and pledge our
loyalty to the principles of our party.
We rejoice at the increasing signs of an awak

In the discussion of the preamble Mr. Petti

platform, and he announced his intention to
move for the appointment of a committee of
three for the simplification of the language of
th* entire document as soon as it Is completed.
Judge. Parker has temporarily blocked the

The struggles in the credentials committee,
lasted seventeen hours. During that time many
dire predictions were made as to the result of
the national election. Bryan was seated in
about four-fifths of the chairs, and the work

in ten minutes. The action of the national
