Dalton, Mass. President Tnft Issued
the following statement ou the presi
"I have every rensou to be satisfied
witti political conditions. I have been
simply overwhelmed for days past with
letters and newspaper clippings show
lug the trend of tbe tide toward the
Republican party, its platform and IU
candidates. I have been especially
gratified by tbe news from the north
"western states. Chairman miles of the
Republican national committee, who
has been visiting the northwest, tell
me that reports from all parts of those
tates bring most gratifying evidence
of Republican confidence and nctlvlt.
with earnest determination to achieve
tho success of Republican principle
"Tbe population of tbe northwest U
not surpassed anywhere in Intelligence
and thrift and attachment to American
Institutions. The farmers of that part
of the Union were never so prosperous,
and they do not mean to risk tbe los
of their prosperity by abandoning the
Republican party, whose policies have
enabled them to prosper. They un
convinced that tbe third term candi
date Is no longer in the running ami
that tbe choice is between tho Repub
llcan platform and candidates, on the
one hand, and, on tho other hand, the
Democratic platform, with Its plank
of a tariff for revenue only, and It
candidate, Governor Wilson, who sulci
in an address at Williams Grove, Ph
that tho farmer does not need protec
tion. It Is unnecessary to explain t
the farmer west, east, north or on
the Pacific slope what Governor Wll
son's very frank declaration would
mean with Mr. Wilson In tho White
Bouse and a Democratic majority In
Prosperity In the Nation.
'Tbe same news comes from all di
rectlons. A Baltimore 'trade paper,
which has been gathering tbe view?
of manufacturers In all parts of t lie
United States, thus sums up the situ
ntlon: 'A rapid expansion in business
Interests, increasing activity every
where, factories overtaxed with order
beyond their capacity to Oil, a grow

skilled mechanics, a car shortage
which. In muny cbbcs, Is greatly re
tnrdLng shipments-such Is tbe coudl
tlon of business throughout the coun
try as voiced by lcadlug mauufactur
crs of every section.'
"The principal reason for the exist
lug prosperity is the assuranco that
under tbe Republican policy of home
protectlou and trade expansion, Auier
lcan Industry, whllo reaching for the
foreign market, la not In danger t
losing the homo market. While nur

"Tbe higher cost of living, as I
have said before. Is worldwide. The
aim of the Republican party is to
see that American workers are en
abled to meet tbe cost of living hy
keeping employed at good wages. It
Is a simple purpose and as direct and
practical as It Is simple and does
not need a volume of rhetoric to ox
plain It or get around it While the
cost of living, so far as most of the
necessaries of life are concerned. I
not so high here as in Europe, the
wage earner here Is getting more
than double to six and seven times
tbe wages paid in Europe and Is in
that proportion better able to meet
any increase In tbe cost of living.
"I am pleased to note that former
Governor Douglas of Massachusetts, nn
earnest and most estimable member nf
tbe Democratic party, refused to be
carried away In the current Idle rea
sons for tbe 'high cost of living.' Tie
attributes It chiefly to the increased
annual product of gold to $500,000,000
from about oneourth that amount
twenty years ago, and he expects that
as long as the present output of gold
continues, with no change In tbe weight
of gold coins, prices will haTe a tendeji
ey to mount higher. Obviously, tho
Democratic party and Governor Wll
son, with such conditions facing us,
could not select a worse time for pro
posing to tho American worker ns In
effect they do propose, by urging n re
duction of the tariff to consent to low
er wages, with a view to more oikmi
competition with labor abroad. Wages
must be kept up, and tbe way to keep
them up is to keep the toriff protective,
and not 'for revenue only.'
"I propose In dealing with tho trust
question to keep tho grent combinations
of capital within exactly the same con
