Ci'In the hope that these forces may be erystalliz

"1. Protection Tor the Constitution.
"2. Protection for the courts.
"3. Protection for American industries.
"4. Protection of the property owner.
"5. Protection of the life of the citizen.
"6. To advocate Government economy.
"7. To work for national prosperity.
"8. To give justice to railroads and corporations.
"9. To favor equality of opportunity.
"10. To insist on the freedom of labor.
'11. To oppose a kin,g in the "White House.

3. To oppose a business bursting Congress.
"44. To put down strife stirring demagogues.
"15. To oppose a muckraking press.

BUSINESS MEN IN POLITICS.:
TIjq fallowing resolution, urging upon business
men ,a. larger participation in national affairs, was
unanimously adopted by The American Protective
League at the annual meeting of 1014, held on Janv
uary 15th. :
RESOLVED, That it is in the power and ccr-
taiuly within the right of American business men
to exert a. potential influence in American politics.
Business has rights which politicians are .bound to
respect. To the end that these rights shall be re
spected The American, Protective Tariff League rec
ommends and urges a larger participation in polit
ical affairs by business men. It is important that
they shall exert-iucrcasedv influence in public af
fairs. More business men in politics are needed
for the congressional, state and presidential cam
paigns of 1914 and 191G, if the public business is
to be conducted with intelligent and sane regard
for business needs and the prosperity of the coun
try. DEMOCRATIC PRODIGALITY.
The Democratic majority in Congress is spending
money nt a rate that frightens it own leaders. John
.1. Fitzgerald, chairman of the appropriations com
mittee, is thus quoted in the Congressional Record:
"In a few months T shall be called upon on the
discharge of my official duties to review the record
tliot this Democratic House shall have made in its
authorization of the expenditure of the public
moneys. Whenever I think of the horrible mess
that I shall be called upon to present to the country
on behalf of the Democratic party I am tempted to
quit my place. T am looking now at Democrats who
seem to take amusement in soliciting votes on the
floor of this House to overturn the Committee on
Appropriations in its efforts to carry out the
pledges of the Democratic platform. They seem to
take it to be a huge joke not to obey their platform
and to make ridiculous the efforts of the members
of our party who do try to live up to the promises
they make to the people.
Congressman Sisson (Dem.) of Mississippi, has
the following to say:
"This is the most outrageously and criminally
extravagant Congress that ever sat on the Amer
ican continent. I want to apologize to the Repub
licans for having called tbein extravagant when
thcjr were in control of the House. They were mod
est in comparison with the appropriation that we
are now making."

GRANT SAVED OFFICERS
Of Confederate Army From Execution
By Johnson's Order.
Of all the stories told by Ulysses H
GraMt one of the most remarkable is
that rebited by Justice Wendell F.
Stafford of the Supremo Court of the
District of Columbia.
Justice Stafford said that shortly aft
ei Lincoln's assassination Johnson told
Grant ho intended to execute all Con
federate ollicers and ollicials and that
Grant turned him from this course b
threatening to seizo WashiMgton with
his victorious army and proclaim mar
"Not long after the death of Lin
coln Johnson summoned Grnut to the
White House," said the justice
"When thoy wro alouo he said, '1
Intend to fix it forevor in tljjj inluds
of the America 'people that secession
is a crime' Grant was silent. '1
inteijd to have all Confederate of
leers and ollicials put to a public
death.' Grant did not speak. When
Johnson hud finished his hnrrauguo
which continued for a quarter of an
hour, Grant roso itt silence to tnko his
leae. 'What do you moan to do,'
"Then tho quiot man mado answer:
"I am going back to camp. I shall
inovo my army upon Washington. 1
shall proclaim martial law and take
command. My reason 'for so doing 1
this: I received tho surrender of Gen
eral Leo, which eMdod tho war. That
surrender put in my bauds tho Hfo and
safoty of ovory olTlcor and ofllcial on
tho Confedorato sido, and I hold mysolf
in duty and hpuor bpund to sco that
thoy aro protected according to the
rules of war and coupon right. You
can communicate with mo at my head
quarters.' "GraMt roturnod to his camp, issued
tho necessary orders and wilted tho
proclamation. Ho rpcelvod word that
Johnson had changed his mind- A vic
torious general rofuslng to relinquish
bis command and calling his dovoted lo
gions to lift him to a tljrQflP that Is
