WILLIAM HOWARD TAFT.
TOR VICE PRESIDENT,
JAME3 S. SHEHMAN.
HON. IIAHHY IIAILEY.
In declaring the crime of the present age to
be "frenzied speech," Vice-President Shermni)
has coiued n very appropriate phrnso.
The Nntioual Prohibition party has been in
existence for more than forty years; ' during
that time it has witnessed tho birth an demiso
of twenty-ono national parties.
The San Francisco Chronicle suggests that
any movement for the extension of the civil
service system should uot include the idea of
retaining incompetents for life.
In his speech at the Minnesota State Fair,
Col. Kooaevelt said tho adoption of the Demo
cratic tariff plan would, plunge tho country in
s(a the worst panic seen in a generation.
The Bostou Transcript finds encouragement
in tho fact that in Bostou and New York the
so called "Industrial Workers of the World"
were not given a place in the Labor Day pa
The Boston Herald well says: "No Con
gress should remain in session during a presi
dential campaign. The temptation to beud
every legislative activity to political advantage
is'too strong to bo resisted."
An American writer who has just visited
China notes the fact that workers in a steel
plant in that country 'eccives f0 cents a day
- for services similiar to those performed by
Americans who receive $10 a diy.
The Now York Journal of Commerce, a free
trade paper, hints that the figures of export
prices of manufactures prepared by the "Tariff
Reform League" to create popular prejudico
against tho piotectivo tariff, aro weakened hy
"exaggerations or errors in detail."
The Now York Commoicial says that Son
ntor Clapp's proposal that tho expenses of
of presidential elections bo paid by tho nation-at-large,
would make us the laughing-stock of
tho world, and would lead to tho multiplying
of parties for tho purpose of getting a share
of this "public plunder."
O'uo reason for the higher cost of living,
uVay be found in tho fact that noaily 21,1)00,-
000 pounds of meats, vegetables, otc, have
been condemned in tho last eight mouths by
tho Now York Board of lloalth, as unfit for
use; and in other cities largo amounts of food
hnye been destroyed for tho same icason.
It must bo that tho voters of Arkansas aro
fanner thau thoso of Ohio, for in tho recent
election they reject oil all of tho proposed radi-
'.- ;cal amendments to tho state constitution, in
cluding thoso of tho "giandfathor clause" (do-
signed to disfranchiso a largo number of negro
vo.ters) and tup recall of all. elective officers. .
It nppoara, that tlm abaudoiimonl of tho
proposed investigation of tho "monoy trust"
by tho Democrats in tho House, dates from tho
timo that Wilson, in his speech of acceptance,
said it was not certain that thoro was any such
thing as a money trust in existence.
THE CRIME OF THIS "NEW AGE."
Tho eiimo of this "uow age" is frenzied
speech and action; lack of thought, a spurning
of dolibeiation and of tho weighing of cons.
quencoB. Fakers with projects to "get rich
quick" draw gaping crowds. Mad ha9to is tho
pastimo of the multitude. Automobiles race
to carry their passengers to death at a mile a
minute. Tho British Board of Trade attribu
tes tho awful sinking of tho Titauic, with its
cruel sacrifice of life, of crew and passengers,
to excessivo speed. The thiid term paity and
Candidate Wilson urgo tho country to liko
disaster and ruin.
When the American people, iu tho quiet of
the home fireside, about the oveuing lamp, in
the lato autumn days, shall have given careful
thought to the history of tho past, shall have
considered tho blessings that have come from
tried policies; when they shall have contem
plated the possible dangers that may follow
from uuwiso and unripe changes, they will
give heed to the warning and will not ropeat
in our political and ecouomic fiolds tho fright
ful and ghastly experience of tho Titanic.
Wo Republicans aro not men woi shippers.
Wo contend with Jefferson for "principles, not
1)-are free, and we follow blindly no leader
and bow to no dictator. The people always
have and the people always will rule. We
grip our anchor firmly on the Constitution and
the American system of representative govern
ment. The more savage aud truculent tho at
tacks upon then, the morejnsolent the bluster,
the more steadfast is our stand for fieo insti
tutions, which aro the glory of mankind. An
untrammelled juiciary is their strong bulwark.
We warn the electorate not to be drowned by
a Niagara of denunciation and abuse. Every
tirade against the Constitution and tho law
and tho courts is a strident call to tho Amer
ican people to protect their homes aud to main
tain, inviolate, Constitutional government;
every assault upon protection a summons to
picserve their opportunities, to maintain ex
isting conditions, which places the American
wage earner iu every calliug on a higher scalo
of living and civilization than onjoyed else
where in tho world. Such protection can be
guaianteed only by adequate customs duties,
justly and wisely applied, to hold our broad
and immense homo market against the world.
Such protection, to be safe and certain, must
be based upon a Republican protective tariff.
Tho evidence upon which the American
elcctorato will base its verdict in November
will bo submitted upon the hustiugs, through
the press aud by pleas through tho mails. Tho
evidence should bo based upon the oxperionco
of tho past. Tho jury of American people
must weigh it well and sift tho falso from the
true. The verdict will bo rendered within a
few hours of a singlo day; its effect will be
with us for years. Let no' juror reach his
conclusion, render his verdict, without duo
caro for tho welfaro of himself, his kinsmon
and his follows. Speech of Accoptnnco of
Vice-Piesident Sherman, August 21, 1012.

A- Rood colored brother in Georgia recently wrote to
hia Disbop for a clerical, as follows: ,
Send us a Bishop to preach. If you can't Bend us a
Bishop send us a sliding Elder; if you can't sondus a
eliding Elder Bend ue a stationary preacher; ihyou can't
send him send ua a circuB rider; if you can't spare him
and ua a locus preacher; if you can't spare a locus
preacher send us an exhauster."
That settled1 It and he got a preacher.
Second. It would unlock tho doors
of tho great monoy centers to tho
farmer of tho rcmoteat regions and
give a security to tho Investor lu New
York, so that ho would need havo no
concern with knowing anything cf tho
ort of security offered by th farm ln
Texas or Oregon on which the money
ho lends Is to bo spent
This means to the farmor low rutoa
of Interest and easy terms for repay
ment. What it would mean ln moro
specUc terms to tho Amorlcau farm
er can bit easily seen in a comparison
of conditions in Germany of Franco
and ln tho United States, lloro Is tho
Btutomiwt of a dealer ln land mort
gages In our southwest, made at a
meeting in Now York city Tho
speaker was describing the business
of a company financed hy British cap
ital which makes mortgage loans on
faims ln tho southwestern states:
"Wo havo been loaning money at 8,
9 and 10 per cant I loaned monoy In
the Panhandle twenty.woven years ago
and for tho Ilrst three or four yearc
.lover got less than 3 per cent a month.
That Is Incident to a new country.
Now our bank rate Is 10 per cent. Our
land loans that wo hire boen raakjng
the first year or so through that sec
tion of tho country havo boen mado
on an 8 or 9 por ceut basis. However,
I am very frank to Bay that I think
tho rates ought to come down and
that we ought to be able to got money
from that section ot the country at
0 or 7 per cent."
In comparison with this statement
tho Credit Fonder ot Franco is able to
loan money on farm lands at 4.3 por
cent and Uio German societies and
banks at ubout 4 or 4.P per cent. As
tho speaker quoted above sayB, tho
high rato of interest ln this country 1b
probably to a large extent duo to tho
fact that It Is a new country and that
money here is more actively employed.
It is donbtful whether, even with the
adoption of the European machinery,
Jtho lntorcst rates on mortgages could
bo brought down as low ln the United
States as they are in either Franco or
Germany. It is tho opinion of no less
an authority than Charles A. Conant,
however, that they could bo brought
down to 5 por cent. A mortgago at
5 per cent with tho advantago to the
farmor of repaying his loan little by
little through an unburdonsomo plan
ot amortization might be accepted as
the sum total of benefit to be expected
by tho American farmor from thi
adoption of somo such system as, for
Initnnco, tho German mortgago bank
crop of last year.
