Bryan Endorses Administra
Cleveland, 0., Feb. 15-The Plain
Dealer tomorrow will publish an in
terview with W. J. Bryan, obtained
by its staff correnpondent at Miami.
Fla., in which the former Democratic
Candidate for President names tnt.
principal planks he hopes to *ee in
corporated in the Democratic nation
al platform at the San Francisco con
./.Mr. Bryan, says he does not at
tempt to disrate, but merely sum
marizes his beliefs and opinions as; a
result of his studying the political
pulse. He places the more important
planks in the following order:
Indorsement of the administration
of President Wilson.
r Woman Suffrage.
Opposition to enforced military
Opposition to profiteering.
. Mr. Bryan practically predicted
the elimination of Governor Edwards
of New Jersey and soldier candidates
on both sides for the presidential
Mr. Bryan declares that he has no
disposition to suggest in advance
planks on which the Democratic con
vention might be divided* "but there
are centain planks which will be in
the platform as a matter of course.
These I am willing to mention."
"There will be a plank endorsing
the President's administration," Mr.
Bryan said, "not that every member
of the party endorses everything thc
administration has done; not that ii
majority of the convention will en
dorse everything that has been done,
but it has been a great administra
tion and the Democrats of the na
tion would not think of entering th<
campaign on a repudiation or upon
a platform silent on that subject.
"The platform will contain a plant
in favor of prohibition as the penna
nent policy of the country and oui
candidate will be pledged to.thc
-strict enforcement of the law in let
ter and spirit. Every state controllec
by the Democrats has ratified the na
tional prohibition amendment. It ii
inconceivable that the Democrats
party should defy the conscience oi
the nation on this subject after hav
ing Contributed so largely to the pro
"There being three states recordec
in opposition to National prohibition
we probably shall expect that oui
candidate for president shall be se
lected from New Jersey and our can
didate for vice-president from Con
necticut or Rhode Island in case oui
convention goes wet. But we wouh
not be sure of carrying those threi
States, because conscience may brea!
out there before election.
"Those who talk about a wet plan!
in our platform do not have an in.
terest in the Democratic victory.
"The platform will strongly de
clare for woman suffrage and the cor
vention may be expected to propose:
effective remedies, national state
and local for profiteering and his old
Mr. Bryan thought it safe to say
that the party will declare against a
return to a protective tariff, and will
endorse the income tax.
"That is the Democratic party will
oppose the plan of big business on
this subject," he said. Big business
and the men of great wealth. The in
fluence which dominates the Republi
can leaders, will try to shift the bur
den of taxation onto the backs, of the
Labor questions will occupy a
large place in our platform. I have no
doubt the party will defend the right
to organize and to peaceably * per
suade; declare in favor of an eight
hour day; favor the right of collec
tive bargaining. I also hope the Dem
ocratic party will declare in favor of
the creation Sf machinery for the in
vestigation of all disputes .between
employer and employe that differenc
es may be settled before they reach
the strike or lockout stage.
"It is impossible at"this time to
say how far the convention will go in
applying the principle of private mo
nopoly to the telegraph, telephone
and railroad problems.
"It is certain the convention will
deal with many other subjects, like
good roads, the i.iiddleman and pro
positions regarding the farmer."
All returned soldiers who have
paid their poll and road tax for the
year 1919 will please bring their tax
receipt tos my office and I will
refund their money as provided in a
special act of the 1919 session of the
legislature. This does not apply to
1920 road tax. The 1920 tax must
be paid by soldiers.
