THIRD PARTY'S PLEA
FOR VOTERS' SUPPORT
Platform Declares New Organization Has
Been Called Into Being by "the
Conscience of the People.1'
WOULD W1DEN FEDERAL POWERS
proposes Easy Amendment of the Constitution, Control \
of Courts, Legislation for Labor, Government
Regulation of Business, and a Tariff to
Protect Worker and Consumer.
i l-rom a Staff Correspondenl of Thr Trihunr. i
ChicaRo. Aug. 7.?Kollowing closely the forecasts printed in The New
York Tribune, the platform of the new party. as hnally approved by the
candidate and the eonvention to-day. calls for a broad extension of national
iuriidiction cvfr "problems which have expanded beyond reach of the indi
vidual states."' This is detnanded up to the limit of the Constitution. and
liter. il tound necessary, by amendment of that instrument. And the party
pledges itself to providc a "more easy and expeditious method" of amend
mg the Constitution. but does not furnish that method.
Both old parties are denounced as the tools oi cormpt interests. and
the Rea party calls for direct primaries for nomination of state and national
oflicers. preferential Presidential primaries. direct clection of Senators. the
short ballot and the initiative. referendum and recall.
Much attention is paid in the platform to the need of bettenng the con
iitions of labor. especially women and children workers. and the party prom
ises to establish a Department of Labor. with a seat in the Cabinet. and with
v4ide jurisdiction over matters affecting conditions of labor and living.
The new party purposes to restrict the power of the courts and place
them under the ''control of the people."
In the interest of farmers it calls for the re-establishment of the Country
Life Commission. . H
The platform advocates a "strong federal administrative commission to
maintain retmanent activc supervision over industrial corporations engaged
in interstate commerre.
It calls for a protective tariff that shall show its beneht m the pay en
vrlone of the laborer, and it demands an immediate downward revision of
the present tariff. The new party also promises a "non-partisan. acientihc
tariff commission" to study the whole subject and report to the President and
Congress and with plenary power to elicit information.
There are a host of other *'prirtciples" set forth in the platform but no
where in the long document is the negro Queation touched on.
Kollowing is the text of the third party's platform:
