Oil and Tobacco Combines
Condemned-Vlewa on
Other Subjects.
rf. -
Following ' -e the principal plank?
of the platform adopted by th-e Demo
cratic ne.tional convention at Balti
more. ...'Ti..;..)....
The Tariff Reform
? "We declare lt to be a fundamental
principle of the Democratic party
that the federal government under
the Constitution has no right or pow
er to Impose or collect tariff duties
except for the purpose of revenue
and we demand that the collection of
such taxes shall be limited to the ne
cessities of government honestly and
economically administered.
"The high Republican tariff is the
principal cause of the unequal distri
bution of wealth ?it is a system of
taxation which makes the rich richer
and the poor poorer; under its opera
tions the American farmer and labor
ing man are the chief sufferers; it
raises the cost of the necessaries of
life to them, but d?es not protect their
product or wages,
"We favor the immediate down
ward revision of the existing high,
and in many cases, prohibitive tariff
duties, insisting that material reduc
tions be speedily made upon the nec
essaries of life. ''Articles entering In
to competition with trust controlled
products and articles of American
manufacture where sold abroad more
cheaply than at home could be put
upon the free list
"We denounce the action of Presi
dent Taft in vetoing the bills to re
duce the tariff in the cotton, woolen,
metals and chemicals schedules and
the farmers free list bills, all of
which vas designed to give immedi
ate relief to the masses from the ex
actions of the trusts,
"The Republican party, ?.while
promising tariff rerislon, has shown
by its tariff legislation that such re
vision is not to be in the people's in
terests and having been faithless to
its pledges of 190S lt should no longer
enjoy the confidence of the nation.
High Cost of Living.
"The high co : of living is a se
rious problem in every American
borne. The Republican party in its
platform attempts to escape from re
sponsibility for present conditions by
Ponying that they are due to a pro
tective tariff. We take issue with
them on this subject and charge that
excessive prices result in a large
measure from ihe high tariff lavis en
acied and maintained by the Repub
lican party, and frcm trusts and com
mercial conspirators fostered and en
couraged by such laws, and we assert
that no substantial relief can be se
cured for the people until import du
ties on the necessaries of life are ma
terially reduced, and those criminal
conspiracies broken up.
Anti-Trust Law.
"A private monopoly is indefensi
ble and intolerable. We therefore fa
vor the vigorous enforcement of the
criminal as well as the civil law
against trusts and trust officials, and
demand enactment of such additional
legislation as may be necessary to
make lt impossible for a private mo
nopoly to exist in the United States.
"We condemn the action of the Re
publican administration In compro
mising with the Standard Oil Com
pany and the tobacco trust and its
failure to invoke the criminal pro
visions of the anti-trust law against
the officers of those corporations aft- j
QT the court had declared that from
the undisputed facts in the record
they had" vi'olal?d the criminal provis
"We regret that Sherman anti-trust
law has received a judicial construc
tion depriving it of much of HB ef
ficac3% and we favor the enactment of
leg^lation which will restore to the
statute the strength of which it has
been deprived by such interpretation.
Income Tax and Popular Election of
Senators.
"We congratul?t*? the oountry upon
the triumph of two Important reforms
demanded in the last national plat
form, namely, the amendment of tho
federal constitution authorizing an in
come tax and the amendment provid
ing for the popular election of sena
tors, and we call upon the people of
all the states to rally to the support
of the pending propositions and secure
their ratification.
"We note with gratification the
unanimous sentiment in favor of
The Cld-Fashloned Fire.
Could anything be more refreshing
than the smell cf the old-fashioned
wood fire in late spring or early au

DEAR SIR:-I was born
be the cost of a policy best ;
publicity before tho election ot cam
paign contributions-a measure de
manded in cur national platform of
19US and at that time opposed by the
Republican part}', and we commend
the Democratic House of Representa
tives for extending the doctrine of
publicity to recommendations, verbal
and written, upon which presidential
appointments are made, to the own
ership and control of newspapers and
to the expenditures made by and in
behalf of those who aspire to presi
dential nominations and we point for

lation to the enormous expenditures'of

Presidential Primaries.
The movement towards more popu
lar government should be promoted
through legislation in each state which
will permit the expression of the pref
erence of the electors for national can
did^kat presidential primaries,
^'^?Kirect that the national com
mittee Incorporate in the call for the
next nominating convention a require
ment that all expressions of preference
for presidential candidates shall be
given and the selection of delegates I
and alternates be through a primary
election conducted by the party or- I
ganizaffon in each state where such |
exprefsion and election are not pro
vided for by state law.
Term of President
"We favor a single presidential
term, and to the end urge the adoption
of an amendment to the constitution
making the president of the United
States Ineligible to re-election, and we
pledge the candidate of this conven
tion to this principle.
Railroads, Express Companies, Tele
graph and Telephone Lines.
"We favor the efficient supervision
and rate regulation of railroads, ex
press companies, telegraph and tele
phono lines engaged in Interstate com
merce. To this end we recommend
the valuation of railroads, express
companies, telegraph and telephone
lines by the Interstate commerce com
mission, such valuation to take into
consideration the physical value of the
property, the original cost, the cost
of reproduction, and any element of
value that will render the valuation
fair and Just
Banking Legislation.
"We oppose the so-called Aldrtch
bill or the establishment of a cen
tral bank, and we believe the people of
the country will be largely freed from
p?nica and consequent un-employment
?nTX?iiuess depression by such ? sys
tematic revision of our banking laws
a8 will render temporary relief in lo
calities where such relief ls needed,
with rrc^ctiTm ?rom control or dom
inatioTi by what ls known as the
money trust. j
Parcels Post and Rural Delivery.
"We favor the establishment of a
parcels post or postal express, and
also the extension of the rural de
livery system as rapidly aa practic
able.
The campaign contributions plank
pledges the party to the enactment of
a law prohibiting any corporation
from contributing to a campaign fund.
It also limits individual contributions
to a "reasonable maximum.**
The Democratic congress ls heartily
commended for its long list of laws
for the benefit of the people after a
generation of unlimited power by the
Republican party. The next plank
arraigns the Republican party for
waste of "the money wrung from the
people by oppressive taxation."
A plank on rural credits is of im
portance. It is recommended that an
investigation of agricultural credit so
cieties in foreign countries be made
looking toward devising a suitable sys
tem for the United States. A water
ways plank provides for federal con
trol of the Mississippi and other, wa
terways. The nlan is to. maintain, an
