Master of his art, Dunn skillfully
played his part. Dellcatoly he palntod

Ono of tho most milking features Is
lift similarity hi numerous respects to
the platform adopted by tho Repub
lican national convention In Chicago
throe weeks ago.
Tho Democrats, who once ndve
cnted free trade, are reconciled to a
tm Iff system, especially one which pro
tects American labor against the
cheaper labor of foreign countilcs.
Botli parlies declare fur further
tallroad regulation, the Democrats fn

and more equtnblo freight nnd passen
The stabllshment of postnl savings
banks Is recommended by both parties,
nnd they also go on record In favor of
u-form In the present currency system.
Tho Democratic labor planks will
probably prove mora satisfactory to
the leaders of organized labor than
IIioho contained in the Republican
platform. They seem to promlso more
in the way of legislation favorable to
labor, especially against tho Inju
dicious use of the Injunction process
by the federal courts, and such men
as Samuel Compel h, president of tho
American Federation of Labor, John
.Mitchell, Into president of tho United
Mine Workers of America, nnd other
members of the executive council of
the federation, appear bettor satlslled
with their treatment hero than that
which thoy received at Chicago.
Tho Democrats hnvo gone the Re

favor of the organization of a new
department of labor at Washington,
with representation In tho president's

went on record In favor of tho estab
lishment of a bureau of mlnos alone,
to be made ono of the component di
