THE "PLAIN SENTENCES"
MR. BRYAN ASKED FOR
Mr. Taft's Early Compliance With the Ne

lie Says Events Have Always
ot the Country In Escaping: a I?rj'aii Adniinis
t rat ion,
Cincinnati. Sept. 14. Asserting that
his official record, his speech of ac
ceptance and his subsequent utter
ances are ample indications of his own
political position. William H. Taft to
day replied to Mr. Uryan's comment on
the Roosevelt letter.
Taft's reply in part follows:
"In my notification speech and in
other speeches made since, I attempted
to make clear my position on ail of the
I cannot make them clearer. I stand
has been unable to understand them,
I cannot make them caelrer. I stand
on my record in the past and what I
have said. Mr. Bryan said I devote a
little time to his own record, from
which he seems to be struggling to
separate himself with all the adroit
ness acquired in a twelve years" hunt
for an issue on which he can be elect
ed president. The readiness with which
Mr. Bryan in his successive presiden
tial campaigns passes from one para
mount issue to another shows that the
chief consideration which affected his
selection of an issue has been its
plausibility in attracting votes. He
presents the remarkable spectacle of
one who has been seeking the presi
dency for twelve years without suc
cess, and without official responsibili
ty, und without an opportunity to test
the various propositions which he has
advocated for reforms, and yet of hav
ing events demonstrate what a collos
sal failure he would have made in each
instance had he been permitted to car
ry his proKsal into the policies of the
country. He does not say whether
he is still in favor of the free coinage
of silver. He does not answer the
question whether if he were president
and the exigency should arise in which
he would be called to exercise his dis
cretion, affirmative to maintaining the
parity between gold and silver, he
would exercise that disposition. He
has not permitted himself to discuss
in this campaign the issue of anti
iniperialisin which was the paramount
issue in 1900, as he declared, and in re
ppect to which the policy of the repub
lican party hns been -vindicated by

events, so that tranquility and good
government exists in the Philippines,
and the independents prefer a repub
lican victory to Mr. Bryan's promises.
"He now says he favors the more
rigid regulation of the railroads. In
1S6 he expressed the view that the
railroads could net be regulated be
cause the railroads would own the reg
ulators appointed by law. and, there
fore, he was in favor of government
ownership. We hear nothing from him
on this subject. Instead, by describ
ing his platform not only as an an
nouncement of principles, but as a
protection against uncomfortable Is
sues, he has attempted to give bond
to keep the peace with respect to gov
ernment ownership, which by its mere
announcement showed its lack of the
vote catching quality. He professes to
have been the father, and now to be the
heirj'f Roosevelt's policies, and yet In
no campaign of the three in which he
has taken part and two of which he
himself led did he make them the par
amount issue. Instead, during the
Parker campaign he took occasion to
charge Roosevelt with militarism and
with being completely subject to the
influence of corporations, only to see
him win the greatest peace triumph
of the world and secure such an ef
fective stamping out of corporate
abuses as to elicit the admiration of
the entire country.
"Mr, Bryan professes to be the great
friend of labor, and yet he was one
of the chief supporters of the passage
of the Gorman-Wilson bill that made
labor helpless for four years. It will
be fortunate indeed if the danger of
four years' depression, to which labor
would be exposed in case Mr. Bryan
is elected, may be averted, and if by
republican success in November he may
be again shown to be a prophet with

president' will agree to stay in Wash
ington and see that Mr. Taft makes
In these words . Mr. Bryan summed
up his opinion of the letter of President
Roosevelt commendatory of Mr. Taft
soon after his arrival in this city.
"It was expected, of course," said
Mr. Bryan "that President Roosevelt
would support Mr. Taft. He could
hardly do less in view of the fact that
he selected him as the administration
candidate and supported him with all
the influence the administration could
"The president's letter, however, may
be objected to as Irrelevant, immaterial
and not the best of evidence. If Mr.
Taft were dead it would be interesting
to know from Mr. Roosevelt what he
knew of Mr. Taft's opinion and work,
but as Mr. Taft is alive and able to
speak for himeslf, it Is hardly neces
sary for Mr. Roosevelt to tell us what
Mr. Taft will do.
"Mr. Taft Is running upon a platform
which was so unsatisfactory that he
had to amend it in several particulars
and yet, even as amended, it gives the
public no definite idea as to what Mr.
Taft stands for. Mr. Taft has also been
making some speeches and promises
to make some more. Those he has al
ready made, have not thrown light up
on the political situation, but it is to
be hoped that he will yet conclude to
define his position with sufficient
clearness to enable the public to know
what he stands for. It Is not sufficient
for the president to say that Mr. Taft
is the friend of labor. That Is a
subject upon which the laboring man
is entitled to his opiniou'and Mr. Taft's
friendship is to be determined not by
the president's endorsement but by the
measures which Mr. Taft advocates.
"Mr. Taft believes that labor organ
izations should come under the opera
tion of the anti-trust law, thus dealing
with men who belong to labor organiJ
zations as if they were merchandise,
for the anti-trust law deals with the
monopoly of the products of labor.
"Mr. Taft is opposed to trial by jury
in cases of indirect contempt, thus
denying to the laboring man a safe
guard which is guaranteed to every
man tried in criminal court. Mr. Taft
does not agree with the laboring man
in regard to use of injunction in labor
disputes. No word of praise from the
president can change Mr. Taft's atti
tude on the question or make that at
titude more acceptable to wage earn
ers. "Mr. Taft's position on the trust
question is not changed by the presi
dent's endorsement. The president
himself has not succeeded in putting
any trust magnates in the penitentviry
and only a few of the trusts have been
disturbed. If Mr. Taft is no more suc
cessful than the president in his at
tacks on the trusts he will not satisfy
the expectations of the public.
"n the tariff question Mr. Taft
failed to express himself with clear
ness. The republican platform does
not use the word "reduction. It prom
ises only a revision and Mr. Ti'ft con
strued this to mean that some sched
ules will be lowered and some raised,
but there is no intimation that the av
erage will be lower or higher than It
"'We ought to have a definite state
ment as to what the public is to ex
pect from Mr. Talt. No such definite
statement appears in the platform and
no definite conclusion can be drawn
from Mr. Taft's speeches and it does
not answer the purpose for the presi
dent to Kay he feels sure Mr. Taft will
do what is right or what is just for

During the forenoon Mr. Bryan re
ceived a large number of " visitors
at the hotel. At 11:30 he left for
Annapolis and spoke in the after
noon, returning. to Baltimore in time
for the meeting at the Fifth regi
ment armory this evening. He will

them to state that while he has no in

The Normal Plurality Reduced Below Ten
The Vote Was Nearly a Eecord Breaker-"-The Dem
ocratic Gains Were the Heaviest In the Rural
Portland, Maine, Sept. 14 Although
the republicans came off victorious in
the state election today, Bert M. Fer
nald of Poland being chosen governor
over Obediah Gardner of Rockland,
the democrats had the satisfaction
of seeing the normal republican plur
ality cut to less than 10,000 votes for
the first time in a presidential year
for more than 25 years. All four
candidates for congress, republican,
were elected and for state auditor,
Charles P. Hatch of Augusta, repub
lican, defeated his opponent.
Returns for governor from 460 out
of 51S cities, towns and plantations,
give Fernald, republican, 70.111, and
Gardner, democrat, 64.628. The same
places in 11104 gave Cobb, republican,
74.419, and Davis, democrat, 49,141.
This shows a republican loss of 4
per cent and a democratic gain of
22 per cent. On this basis the re
publican plurality, it was estimated,
would be about 8,000. The result
shows not only the warmth of the
contest, but the popularity of Mr.
Gardner, whose fame as head of the
state grange. Patrons of Industry,
proved a great vote gainer.
