CHICAGO, June 10. Today was
j platform day. I wish 1 could give a
i phonographic description of the scene;
language does not adequately describe
such an occasion. AVords may bo un
dcrsored in print, but no underscor
ing can reproduce the impre33lon that

R Compromise on Treaty.
It Of tho treaty plank I shall treat
II more at length, in my next article. It
was a compromise and, like all com-
11 promises, did not express the real een-
timent of any considerable number.:
N It was carefully written It will not

R' af! select from the plank silences that
v J will support all they said and did. The
H" convention merely asks the country to
H J trust it to decide what to do and how
I to do it, without limitation, restric
tion or direction.
The profiteering plank stands out
as probably tho best evidence of the
Republican party's inability to protect
the people from the menace of big
The government records furnish
abundant and conclusive proof of con
ecienceless plundering by tho middle
men. Every community has been vic
timized; the rising resentment of pro
ducers and consumers Is one of the
chief causes of unrest, and yet a Re
publican national convention slights
the subject by devoting to it its short -
I Til est plank. It is brief enough to quote in
i "We condemn the Democratic ad-
! ministration for failure impartially to
$ enforce tho anti-prof Iteerlng laws en-
acted by the Republican congress."
' ;j Lowden I'l-omises Xotlilng.
'. Here is a plank containing eighteen
words and occupying a little less than
four lines of the ordinary newspaper
"ti space. One of the biggest subjects be-
, ! fore the American people is dismissed
;S with one sentence and that senten'cc,
j instead of promising something, mere-J
y condemns the Democratic adminis-
' tration. The plank does not specify
J the Republican laws that remain un-
I Q enforced; it does not even congratulate
) the Republican party upon passing
ii such laws, The anti-proflte?ring son-
1 tence isn't red in the face with indig
nation; it doesn t shake its fist at tho
i president or the attorney gcn?i-al and
demand the protection of tho people.
tit seems like a casual statement
I thrown in parenthetically, it is pre
ceded by un enumeration of the cause
of the high cost of living, first and
foremost among which Is "a fifty per
cent deprecitation In tho purchasing
power of the dollar.'' "
Bryan's Views "Indicated."
Hero we have a formal acceptance
of tho quantitative theory of money;
it is easier to confess the party wrong
twenty-four years ago in denying the
quantitative theory of money, than to
face the profiteers of today. Among
the lesser and "not so unforemost"
causes nre "reduced production, bur
densome taxation, swollen' profits, and
the Increased demand for goods arising
from tho fictitious but enlarged buy
The cautio described as "swollen
profits" is included with three other
causes named, but there is no indica
tion of anger or resentment. There
is anothor paragraph just preceding
thr nrnfif fprlntr nlnnk which cont.nlnR
sixteen lines, in which the convention
i pledges tho party to earnest and con
sistent attack upon tho high cost of
(1) Avoidance of inflation,
(2) Intelligent deflation and
(3) Encouragement of production
by prevention of unreasonable profits,
by public economy, stimulation of
thrift, and revision of taxes.
Xo Terror in Profiteer,
The platform not only offers no
specific relief but il warns the country
'that "there is no short way out," and
I tho delegates therefore "decline to de
jcclve the people with vain promises
that 3trikes terror into tho heart of
the profiteer, or excites hope of relief
in the hearts of tho suffering?
The service men will not fail to note
that this platform carefully avoids
any pledge of a bonus. The delegates
assure the soldiers and sailors of the
recent war that they hold "in Imper
ishable remembrance the valor and
the patriotism" that they exhibited,
and they promise to discharge "to the
luuest the obligation winch a gratelui
nation justly should fulfill.
I No Word on Bomi5.
But tho word bonus does not ap
Ipoar. Instead of a specific promise,
jthe delegates declare that the Repub
licans are not ungrateful, and ask
that "their history" he accepted as a
The trouble is that the Republican
party is not willing to collect tho
j money for a bonus from the only
source available, viz: from those who
; made fortunes out of the war, while
I the" soldiers bore tho risks of, the
I Fiasco on Prohibition.
The fiasco on the prohibition plank
i probably has no equal in the history
j of national conventions.
' The platform as prepared by the
J sub-committee and published in morn
I Ing papers contained a six' line sen-
tence, as follows:
I "With regard to the sale and man-
uafture' of Intoxicating beverages,
; the Republican party will stand for
j the enforcement of the constitution of
the United States as it shall be de
clared by the supreme court."
Little "Dry" lSnthusiasin.
That was surely weak enough; It
had less than one half of ono per cent
of vigor in it. it did not' mention
the Volstead law; it did not announce
the party's position on the subject of
prohibition; it did not even congratu
late the Republican party on having
a part in this great moral victory. But
even that plank, evasive at it was, was,
s'ricken out in the full committee, and!
tho platform was adopted amid great!

' COLISEUM, CHICAGO. June 10.
For methods that are foggy and tricks

L I ed to a political committee.
. A convention committee is a group
of bimbos whoso activity compares
very favorably with a bunch of loosc-
ly cookod asparagus. They are a nim
ble aquad of political weevil3 and
have all the self-determination and
, initiative of an orchestra of ventrilo
They are picked not so much' for
speed as for docility and disposition
to stand without hitching. Those men
have all the courage of their party
boss' convictions. When going into
executive session, they always take
a pinochle deck along and lot the
cards do their thinking. After being
in session three days they open their
soalcd orders from the party Simon
Logree and examine the verdict. Si
mon only had one Uncle Tom. A par
ty padrone has a committee of 'em.
There is always a committee on
ways and means that weighs nothing
and means loss. These men are the
pick of the delegates. A pick is
something with a handle on it.
Then there is the committee on res
olutions. They have all the power
of a glass of beevo and the author
ity ol a forecaster who knows what
kind of weather we arc going to have
after we havo it. .
The committee on entertainment Is
a necessary wart on the political pic
kle and Is allowed to entertain any
thing but ldea3.
The campaign committee is as es
sential as a whipsock on a flivver.
I And don't forget tho sub-cominit-
tee, Mr. Duffy,. The aub is short
for subsidized, sub-normal and the
sublime that is only a step from the
ridiculous. Tho idea of a sub-committee
is to do any loafing that the
regular committee has overlooked.
The committees also work behind
closed doors like counterfeiters or
guys making home booze. After cut
ting out paper dolls and making mud
pies for six days, they pass a reso
lution doclding to sond their other
collar to the laundry.
Aftor publishing this epoch-making
ukase that shakes the world to its
political foundations, tho committee
cuts its own hair, switches its sox
from .one foot to another, and com
pletely refreshed and invigorated, it
resumes its inactive activities.
enthusiasm, makes no reference what
ever to the subject of prohibition
Ono member of the committee on
resolutions prepared a minority report
containing an endorsement of prohibi
tion. He gave it to an outsider, not
a delegate to the convention, with
instructions that it be given to a
prominent delegate from his state to
present. The prominent delegate could j
not be found, and tho delegates from
thirty-four dry states that is, dry by
their own act, sat mute while the
subject was ignored.
Stolen From Lyman Briggs of
Hooper, Studebaker Found
Completely wrecked from a plunge
down a 300 foot embankment and then
catching fire, a Stndebaker truck be
longing to Lyman Briggs of Hooper
and stolon in Hooper early yesterday
morning, was fouml last night at the
dugway .near Uintah. The truck had
evidently been purposely run over the
cliff by the thieves and was damaged
beyond repair. Officers who found the
truck declared that one tire was all
that was salvagable on the entire car.
The truck was used by Mr. Briggs
for the hauling of mail. It disappear
ed from near his home early yesterday
morning. Officers have no clue to
the Identity of the thieves.
Harold Lloyd at Ogden
Theatre Sunday in His
Latest Big Comedy Hit
There's a time and a place for ev
erything! The time of Harold Lloyd's
newest two-reel comedy, "An Eastern
"Westerner," is several thousand
cocktails before the prohibition hour
and tjountless wriggles after aomc
nervous person introduced the shim
niie. The place is East and West and
the hero is any young man who buys
chicken for Chickens. "An Eastern
Westerner" will be shot on the screen
at the Ogden theatre next Sunday.
The girl is Mildred Davis.
In addition to Lloyd, will be Lew
Cody in "The Beloved Cheater."
Tomorrow will mark the closing of
"Other Men's Shoes."
