Telegram from Roosevelt at Critical
T'me Has Good Effect on Action
of Refractory Dele.
i i By Associated Press.
:.; CHICAGO, June Victory for the
! Taft forces on the resolutions com
mittee came with the dawn. A plat-
V form which contains an Injunction
| plank satisfactory to the prospective
1 candidate is embodied in the substan
tial structure of verbiage upon which
.is to be'made the secretary's appeal
for popular approval. This result was
attained with suddenness upon the col
. lapse of the opposition early In the
evening. Two hours before this the
opponents of the Injunction provision
! \ were rejecting offers of compromise
and asserting with positlvenes* their
ability to eliminate any injunction
■'< plank. •
A telegram from President Roosevelt
arrived, as well as a letter and tele
. gram from Secretary Taft, each urging
'action. An ultimatum in substance, if
not in words, had been delivered short
ly before to the "allies," which was in
.. terpreted as spelling- the renomination
■ of Roosevelt should the convention re-
I fuse a platform upon which the secre
tary of war could make the race with
, confidence. Then followed protracted
. discussion and the final adoption of
the contested plank by a vote of 85
to 16.
■ Beginning with the adjournment of
■ the convention on Tuesday, the work
of the resolutions committee was prac
tically continuous until 4:20 o'clock this
■ morning, when the first platform was
;-'.. produced.
Text of Platform
It was not until 10 o'clock last night
that the scales began to tip in favor
of the administration forces, but after
the dissolution of the opposition began
it was rapid and soon completed, leav
ing nothing to mark its existence but
a few of the unrecorded speeches and
'; a slim minority of votes.
' The text of the platform adopted by
1 the committee on resolutions is as fol
lows :
National Republican Platform
; Once more the Republican party, In
national convention assembled, sub
: mits Its cause to the people. This great
historic organization that destroyed
' slavery, preserved the Union, restored
credit, expanded the national domain,
established a sound financial system,
I developed the Industries and resources
of the country and gave to the nation
' her seat of honor in the councils of the
world, now meets the new problems of
government with the same courage and
capacity with which it solved the old.
Republicanism Under Roosevelt
In this, the greatest era of American
advancement, the Republican party has
reached its highest service under the
] leadership of Theodore Roosevelt. His
administration is an epoch in American
. history. In no other period since na
tional sovereignty was won under
Washington or preserved under Lin
coln has there been such mighty
progress in those ideals of government
•which make for Justice, equality and
fair dealing among men. The highest
aspirations of the American people
have found a voice. The most exalted
servant represents the best aims and
worthiest purposes of all his country
men. American manhood has been lift
ed to a nobler sense of obligation.
Conscience and courage In public sta
tion and higher standards of right and
wrong in prlyate life have been cardinal
principles of political faith; capital and
labor have been brought into closer re
• lations of confidence and interdepend
ence; and the abuse of wealth, the
tyranny of power and all the evils of
privilege and favoritism have been put
to scorn by the simple, manly virtues of
Justice and fair play.
The great accomplishments of Presi
dent Roosevelt have been first and fore
most a brave and impartial enforce
ment of the laws; the prosecution of
Illegal trusts and monopolies; the ex
posure and punishment of evildoers In
the public service; the more effective
regulation of the rates and the service
of the great transportation lines; the
complete overthrow of preferences, re
bates and discriminations; the arbitra
tions of labor disputes; the ameliora
tion of the woodworkers everywhere;
the conservation of the national re
sources of the country; the forward
ptep in the improvement of the inland
waterways, and always the earnest
support and defense of every whole
some safeguard which has made more
secure the guarantees of life, liberty
and prosperity.
These are the achievements that will
make for Theodore Roosevelt his place
In history, but more than all else, the
great things he has done will be an
Inspiration to those who have yet great
er things to do. We declare our unfal
tering adherence to the policies thus
Inaugurated, and pledge their continu
ance under a Republican administration
of the government.
Equality of Opportunity
Under the guidance of Republican
■ principles the American people have
become the richest nation in the world.
Our wealth today exceeds that of Eng
land and all her colonies and that of
France and Germany combined.
When the Republican party was born
the total wealth of the country was
$16,000,000,000. It has leaped to $110,000,
--000,000 in a generation, while Great
Britain has gathered but $60,000,000,000
in 600 years. The United States now
owris one-fourth of the world's wealth,
and makes one-third of all modern
manufactured products.
In tiie greatness of civilization such
as coal, tlio motive jower of all activi
ty; iron, the chief basis of all Industry:
cotton, th« stapifi foundation of all
fabrics; wheat, corn and all the agri
cultural product:-, that feed mankind,
America's supremacy Is undisputed, i
And yet her great natural wealth has
scarcely been touched. We have h \iist
domain of 3.00H.000 square miles literally
bursting with latent treasure, fctill wait
ing the magic of. capital and Industry
to be converted to the practical uses of
mankind; p. country rich in Foil ii.nd
climate, in the unharnessed energy of
ttl rivers, and in all the Miried products
of the fleid, the forest and the fai tory.
With gratltiiiiv for God's bounty, with
pride in the splendid productiveness of
the pact and with coafldenoe in the
plenty and -prosperity of the future, the

Republican party declares for the prin- i
clple that In the development and en
joyment of wealth so groat and bless
ings bo benign there shall be equal op
portunity for all. '
The Revival of Business
Nothing so clearly demonstrates the
sound basis upon -which our commer
cial, industrial and agricultural Inter
ests are founded and the necessity of
promoting the present continued wel
fare through the operation of Repub
lican policies as the recent safe pass
age' of the American people through a
financial disturbance which, if appear
ing in the midst of Democratic rule or
the menace of it, might have equaled
the familiar Democratic panics of the
past. We congratulate the people upon
this renewed evidence of American su
premacy and hail with confidence the
signs now manifest of a complete res
toration of business prosperity in all
lines of trade, commerce and manu
Recent Republican Legislation
Since the election of William McKin
ley in 1596 the people of this country
felt anew the wisdom of entrusting
the Republican party through decisive
majority the control and direction of
all national legislation.
The many wise and progressive
measures adopted at recent sessions of
congress have demonstrated the pa
triotic resolve of Republican leadership
in the legislative department to keep
step in the forward march of better
Notwithstanding the indefensible fili
bustering of a Democratic minority In
the house of representatives during the
last session many wholesome and pro
gressive laws were enacted, and we
especially commend the passage of the
currency bill, the appointment of the
national monetary commission the em
ployers' and government liabilities
laws, the measure for the gTeat effi
ciency of the army and navy, the wid
ows pension bill, the child labor laws
for the District of Columbia, the new
statutes for the safety of railroad en
gineers and firemen arid many other
acts conserving the public welfare.
The Republican party declares un
equivocally for a revision of t:.e tariff
by a special session of congress imme
diately following the inauguration of
the next president, and commends the
steps alretuly taken to this end In the
work assigned to the appropriate com
mittees of congress which are now in
vestigating the operation and effect of
existing schedules. In all tariff legis
lation the true principle of protection
is best maintained by the imposition of
such duties as will equal the differ
ence between the cost of production at
home and abroad, together with a rea
sonable profit to American Industries.
We favor the establishment "of maxi
mum and minimum rates to be admin
istered by the president under limita
tions fixed by law, the mMtimum to no
available to meet discriminations by
foreign countries nK.iinst American
goods entering their markets and the
minimum to represent the normal
measure of protection at home; the
aim and purpose of tho Republican pol
icy being not only to preserve, without
excessive duties, that secvirity against
foreign competition which American
manufacturers, farmers and producers
are entitled, but also to maintain the
high standard of living of the wage
earners of this country, who nre the
moot direct beneficiaries of the pro
tective system. Between the United
States and the Philippines we believe
in a free interchange of products with
such limitations an to supar and to
bacco as will afford equal protection to
domestic interests.
We approve the emergency measures
adopted by the government during tho
recent financial disturbance, and espe
cially commend the passage by con
gress at the last session of the law
designed to protect the country from
a repetition of such a stringency. The
Republican party is committed to the
day« iopment of a permanent currency
system responding to our greater needs
and the appointment of the national
monetary commission by the present
| congress, which will impartially in
vestigate all proposed methods, insures
tha early realization of this purpose,
The present currency laws have fully
Justified their adoption, but an ex
panding commerce, a marvelous growth
in wealth and population, multiplying
the centers of distribution, Increasing
the demand for movement of crops In
the west and south, and entailing perl
orjic changes In monetary conditions,
disclose the seed of a more elastic and
adaptable system. Such a system must
nioet the requirements of agricultur
ists, manufacturers, merchants and
business generally, must be automatic
in operation, minimizing the fluctua
tions in interest rates, and, above all,
must be in harmony with that Repub
lican doctrine which insists that every
dollar shall be based upon and as good
as gold.
Postal Savings
We favor the establishment of a pos
tal savings bank system for the con
venience of the people and the encour
agement ofthrlft.
Trusts '
The Republican party passed the
Sherman anti-trust law over Democrat
ic opposition, and enforced it after
Democratic dereliction. It has been a
wholesome instrument for good in the
hands of a wise and fearless adminis
tration. But experience has shown that
its effectiveness can be strengthened
and its real object better attained by
such amendments as will give to the
federal government greater supervision
and control over and secure greater
publicity In the management of that
class of corporations engaged in inter
state commerce, having power and op
portunities to effect monopolies.
We approve the enactment of the
railrpad rate law and the vigorous en
forcement by the present administra
tion of the statutes against rebates and
discrimination, as a result of which
the advantage formerly possessed by the
large shipper over the small shipper
have substantially disappeared, and in
this connection we commend the ap
propriation by the present congress to
enable the Interstate commerce com
mission to thoroughly Investigate and
give publicity to the accounts of inter
state railroads. We believe, however,
that the interstate commerce law
should be further amended so as to
give railroads the right to make and
publish traffic agreements, subject to
tho approval of the commission, but
maintaining always the principle of
competition between naturally compet
ing lines, and avoiding the common
control of such lines by any means
whatsoever. We favor such national
legislation and supervision as will pre
vent the future overissue of stock and
bonds by interstate carriers.
Railroad and Government Employes
The *ractment In constitutional form
at the present session of congress of
the employers' liability law; the pas
sage and enforcement of the safety ap
pliance statutes, as -well as the addi
tional protection secured for engineers
and firemen; the reduction in the hours
of labor of trainmen and railroad teleg
raphers; the successful exercise of the
powers of mediation and arbitration
between interstate railroads and thrir
employes and the law making a hn
pilining in the policy of compensation
for injured employ** of the govern
ment, are xmong the most commend
able accomplishments of the present
administration. Hut there is further
work In this direction yet to be done,
and the Republican rarty pledges its
continued devotion to every cause that
makes for safety and the betterment
of conditions amoiiK those whose labor
contributor* so much to the progress
and welfare of the country.
Wage Earners Generally
The same wise policy which has In
duced the Republican party to maintain
protection to American labor; to es
tablish an eight-hour day on the con
struction of all public works; to in
crease the list of employes who shall
have preferred claims for wages under
the bankruptcy laws: to adopt a child
labor statute for the District of Co
lumbia; to direct an investigation into
conditions of working women and chil
dren, and later, of employes of tele
phone and telegraph companies en
gaged In interstate business; to ;ip
pi-opriate $151,001 at the recent session
of congress in order to secure thor
ough inquiry Into the causes of catas
trophe* find loss of life in the mines;
ana to amend and strengthen the law
prohibiting the importation of contract
labor will be pursued In every legiti
mate direction within federal authority
to lighten the burdens and increase ten
opportunity for happiness and ad
vancement of all who toil. The Re
publican party recognizes the special
needs of wage workers, generally, for
their well being means the well bfing
of all, But more important than all
Other consideration* is that of good
cltlxenship, and we especially rtand
for tho needs of every American, what
ever his peeupation In his capacity as a
■elf-respecting cltlßsn.
Court Procedure
The Republican party will uphold at
all times the authority anrl Integrity
of the courts, Htate and federal, and
will ever Insist that their powers to
enforce their processes and to protect
life, liberty and property shall be pxg-
served inlvolate. We believe, how
ever, that the rules of procedure In
the federal courts with respect to the
Issuance of the writ of injunction, or
temporary restraining order, should
not be issued without notice, except
where Irreparable injury would result
from delay, in which case a speeedy
hearing- thereafter should be granted.
The American Farmer
Among those whose -welfare Is as
vital to the welfare of the whole coun
try as that of the wage earner is the
American farmer. The prosperity of
the country rests peculiarly upon the
prosperity of agriculture. The Repub
lican party during the last twelve
years has accomplished extraordinary
work in bringing the resources of the
national government to the aid of Die
farmer, not only in advancing agricul
ture Itself, but In Increasing the con
veniences of country life. Free rural
mail delivery has been established. It
now reaches many millions of our
citizens and we favor its extension un
til every community in the land re
ceives the full benefits of the postal
service. We recognize the social and
economic) advantages of good country
roads, maintained more and more
largely at public expense and less and
less at the expense of abutting owners.
In thip work we commend the growing
practice of state aid, and we approve
the efforts of the national agricultural
department by experiments and other
wise to make clear to the public the
best method of road construction.
Rights of the Negro
The Republican party has been for
more than fifty years the consistent
friend of the American negro. It gave
him freedom and citizenship; it wrote
into the organic law the declarations
that proclaim his civil and political
rights and it believes today that his
noteworthy progress In prosperity, al
legiance and good citizenship has
earned the respect and encouragement
of the nation. We demand equal Jus
tice for all men without regard to race
or color; we declare once more and
without reservation for the enforce
ment in letter and spirit of the thir
teenth, fourteenth and fifteenth amend
ments to the constitution, which were
designed for the protection and ad
vancement of the negro, and we con
demn all devices that have for their
real aim his dlsfranchisement for
reasons of color alone as unfair, un-
American and repugnant to the su
preme law of the land.
Natural Resources and Waterways
We indorse the movement Inaugu
rated by the administration for the
conservation of natural resources; we
approve all measures to prevent the
waste of timber; we commend the work
now going on for the reclamation of
arid lands and reaffirm the Republi
can policy of the free distribution of
the available areas df the public do
main to the landless settler. No obli
gation of the future is more Insistent
and none will result in greater bless
ings to posterity. In line with the
splendid undertaking is the further
duty, equally imperative, to enter upon
a ayetematlc Improvement upon a large
and comprehensive plan, Just to all
portions of the country, of the water
ways, harbors and great lakes, whose
natural adaptability to the increasing
traffic of the land Is one of the great
est, gifts of the beneflclent Providence.
The Army and Navy
'The Sixtieth congress passed many
commendable acts increasing the effi
ciency of tha army and navy, making
the militia of the states an integral
part of the national establishment;
authorizing Joint maneuvers of army
and militia; fortifying new naval bases
and romi'lenng the construction of
coaling Stafloni; instituting a female
nurse corps for nava! hospitals and
■hips, and adding two new battleships,
ten torpedoe bout destroyers, three
steam colliers and eight submarine* to
the ptrcngth of the navy. Although fit
)ienre with the world, and secure in
the consciousness that the American
people do not desire and will not pro
voke a war with any country, we nev
erfhelefs declare our unalterable de
votion to a policy that will keep thla
republic i-eady at all times to defend
her traditional doctrines and assure
her appropriate part In protecting per
manent tranquillity among the nations
■ I the world.
Protection of American Citizens
We commend the vigorous efforts
mode by the administration to protect
American citizens in foreign countries
ami plsdge ourselves to Insist upon the
.lust and equal protection of all our
citizens abroad. It is the unquestioned
duty of the government to procure for
nil our citizens, without distinction,
the rights of travel and sojourn in
friendly countries, and we declare our-
■elvea in favor of all proper efforts
tending to that end.
Extension of Foreign Commerce
Under the administration of the Re
publican party the foreign commerce
of the United States has experienced
a remarkable growth, until it has at
present an annual valuation of approx
imately three billions of dollars ana
gives employment to a vest amount
of labor and capital which would oth
erwise be idle. It hns inaugurated
through the recent visit of the secre
tary of state to South America and
Mexico a new era of pan-American
commerce and comity, which is brlng
; Ing us into close touch with our twen
ty sister Amerlcnn republics, having
I a common historical heritage, a repub
i lican form of government and offering
i us a limitless field of legitimate com
: mercial expansion.
Arbitration and The Hague Treaties
The conspicuous contributions of
' American statesmanship to the great
cause of international peace, so signal
; ly advanced in The Hague conference,
' aro an occasion for just pride and
gratification. At the last session of tho
senate of the United States eleven
Hague conferences were ratified and
established the rights of neutral laws
of wnr on land, restricting of subma
rine mines, limiting the use of force
! for tho collection of contractual debts.
I governing the opening of hostilities,
extending tho application of the Gene
va principles, and. In many ways, les
soning the evils of war and promoting
tho peaceful settlement of Internation
al controversy. At the same session
twelve arbitration conventions with
great nations were confirmed and ex
tradition, boundary and neutralization
i treaties of supreme importance were
ratified. We indorse such achieve
ments as the highest duty a people
can perform ami proclaim the obliga
tion of further strengthening the bonds
of friendship and good will with all
the nations of the world.
Merchant Marine
We adhere to the Republican doc
trine of encouragement to shipping
and urge legislation that will revive the
merchant marine prestige of the coun
try, so essential to national defense,
the enlargement of foreign trade and
the industrial prosperity of our own
Veterans of the Wars
Another Republican policy which
must be ever maintained is that of
liberal provision for those who have
fought the country's battles and for
the widows and orphans of those who
have fallen. We commend the increase
in the widows' pensions made by the
present congress and declare for liberal
1 administration of all pension laws to
the end that the people's gratitude may
grow deeper as the memories of heroic
sacrifice grow more sacred with the
passing years.
Civil Service
We reaffirm our former declarations
that the civil service laws, enacted, ex
tended and enforced by the Republican
party shall continue to be maintained
and obeyed.
Public Health
We commend efforts to secure great
er efficiency in national public health
agencies and favor such legislation as
will effect this purpose.
Bureau of Mines and Mining
In the Interest of the great mineral
industries of our country we earnestly
favor tha establishment of a bureau
of mines and mining.
Cuba, Porto Rico'the Philippines and
The American government, in Re
publican hands, has freed Cuba, given
peace and protection to Porto Rico and
the Philippines under our flag and be
gun the construction of the Panama
canal. The political conditions in
Cuba vindicate the wisdom of main
taining between Cuba and this coun
try imperishable bonds of mutual in
terest and the hope is now expressed
that the Cuban people will soon be
ready to assume complete sovereignty
over their land.
In Porto Rico the government of the
United States is meeting loyal and
patriotic support; order and prosperity
prevail and the well being of the people
is in every respect promoted and con
We belie.ye that the native Inhab
itants of Porto Rico should be at once
collectively made citizens of the United
States and that others properly quali
fied under existing laws residing in
said islands should hav«j the privilege
of becoming naturalized.
In the Philippines insurrection has
been suppressed, law established and
life and property made secure. Educa
tion and practical experience are there
advancing the capacity of the people
for government, and the policies of
McKinley and Roosevelt are leading
the inhabitants, step by step, to ever
increasing measure of home rule.
Time has justified the selection of the
Panama route for the great Isthmian
canal, and even this has shown the
wisdom of securing authority over the
Eone through which it Js to be built.
The work is now progressing with a
rapidity beyond expectation, and al
ready the realization of the hope of
centuries has come within the vision of
the near future.
New Mexico and Arizona
We favor the immediate admission of
the territories of New Mexico and Ari
zona as separate states in the Union.
Centenary of Birth of Lincoln
February 12, 1909, will be the one
hundredth anniversary of the birth of
Abraham Lincoln, an immortal spirit
which every family has brightened
with the receding yeara and whose
name stands among tho first of those
given to the world by the great repub
lic. We request that this centennial
and anniversary be celebrated through
out the confines of the national Union
by all the people and especially by the
public schools as exercises to stir the
patriotism of the land.
Democratic Incapacity for Government
We call the attention of the American
people to the fact that none of the
great measures here advocated by the
Republican party could be enacted un
der a Democratic administration or un
der one in which party responsibility la
divided. The continuance of the pres
ent policies therefore absolutely re
quires the continuance in power of that
party which believes in them and which
possesses* the capacity to put them into
Differences Between Parties
Beyond all platform declarations there
are fundamental differences bteween
the Republican party and its chief op
ponent which make the one worthy and
the other unworthy of public trust.
In history the difference between De
mocracy and Republicanism is that the
one stood for debased currency, the
other for honest currency; the one for
five Bilv«r, the other for sound money;
the one for tree trade, the other tor
protection; the one for construction of
American influence, the other for ex
pansion; the one has been forced to
abandon every position taken on the
great issues before the people, the oth
er has held and vindicated all.
In experience the difference between
Democracy unrt Republicanism is that
one means adversity while the other
means high prosperity; -one means
doubt and debt, the other means con
fidence and thrift.
In principle, the difference between

HARNESS ,1, K. L^A^es Street: ■ SADDLERY
Democracy and Republicanism Is that
one stands for vacillation and timidity
in government, the other for strength
and purpose; one stands for obstruc
tion, the other for construction; the one
promises, the other performs; one finds
fault, the other finds work.
The present tendencies of the two
parties are even more marked by in
herent differences. The trend of De
mocracy Is toward Socialism, while the
Republican party stands for a wise and
regulated Individualism. Socialism
would destroy wealth. Republicanism
would prevent its abuse. Socialism
would give to each an equal right to
take. Republicanism would give to each
an equal right to earn. Socialism
would offer an equality of possession
which ■'would soon leave no one any
thing to possess; Republicanism would
give equality of opportunity which
would assure* to each his share of a
constantly increasing sum of posses
In line with this policy the Demo
cratic party of today believes in gov
ernment ownership, while the Republi
can party believes in government regu
lation; ultimately. Democracy would
have the nation own the people, while
Republicans would have the people own
the nation.
Upon this platform of principles and
purposes, reaffirming our adherence
to every reasonable doctrine pro
claimed since the birth of the party,
we go before the country asking the
support not only of those who have
acted with us heretofore but of all our
fellow citizens who, regardless of past
political differences, unite in the de
sire to maintain the policies of per

to the fact that the president, seconded
by Secretary Tart, forty-eight hours
ago allowed the statement to emanate
from the Wbltt House that either Sen-
ator Dolliver or Governor Cummins of
lowa would be acceptable as second on
the ticket with Secretary Taft.
As Senator Dolliver has already sig

nomination, it U therefore deduced that

CHICAGO, June 18.—A meeting of the
prominent Republicans, most but not
all of them supporters of Secretary
Taft, wag held tonight at the rooms of
Frank H. Hitchcock, one of Mr. Taft's
The meeting began at 10. o'clock and
was still in session at midnight It had
been the expectation that this confer
ence would decide upon an available
candidate for the vice presidential nom
ination, and it was even anticipated by
some that the view of Secretary Taft
as to the choice of a companion on the
ticket would be made known.
In both respects the meeting was a
disappointment. The situation had been
represented to Mr. Taft by wire, but
at a late hour no definite preference
had been expressed by him.
In the absence of a statement from
Mr. Taft the conference busied itself
with a discussion of the situation, and
in doing so the availability of many
men was discussed. The preponderance
of opinion seemed to be favorable to
the selection of some man from the
Mississippi valley, and then the names
of Senator Dolliver and Governor
Hughes were frequently mentioned. The
meeting was made aware of the action
of the lowa delegation in deciding to
withdraw the name of Senator Dolliver
In case it should be presented, and It
was the general view that such action
would have a demoralizing effect upon
the convention.
The kindly feeling of the administra
tion for Governor Cummins was con
ceded, but some expressed the thought
that he would not be acceptable to the
convention. The names of Senators
Long of Kansas and Warner of Mis
souri were, both of these gentlemen be
ing present, promptly declined to be
considered as candidates.
It was reported Mr. Fairbanks would
have many friends in the convention,
and the opinion was held by some that,
all things considered, he would make
the most acceptable nominee that could
be chosen.
The advancement of the boom of Rep
resentative Sherman was freely com
mented upon and several expressed the
opinion that his nomination was highly
probable, but there was no decision to
concentrate upon him.
