Lt MllK Of KUfHky FWMTS
CAMDEN'S TELLIH6 ADDRESS
Chairman of the Kentucky Dem&c ratio
Campaign Committee Telia Some
Plain Truths at the Meetln-i ef the
State Central and State Executive
Committees In Louisville Present
Political Situation the Subject of
a Masterly Analysis,
At tho meeting of tho state central
rind Btnte executive committees in
' Louisville on Oct. 29th, J. N. Camden,
chairman of tho state campaign com
mittee, delivered a strong and effec
tive address on the present political
situation. Tho speech was of a, very
progressive character. Ho advocated
r.rid declared emphatically for a tariff
fc'r revenue only as the last means
of obtaining relief for tho agricultural
li.terests of Kentucky.
Chairman Camden spoke In part as
"In August you honored mo with,
the position of chairman of tho state
Campaign committee, for the purpose
of conducting the presidential cam
paign in Kentucky. Since then tho
committee has labored hard, to tho
end that every precinct in ttiq state
should be properly organized and the
full Democratic vote polled on election
day. Wo are now on tho last lap of
tho race; we are rounding into the
home stretch, and a week from today
the race will be over.
"However, this Is not the time for
me to talk as to what has been' done.
The results next Tuesday will speak
for themselves. After election day it
will be the duty, as well as the pleas
uie, of the campaign committee to
render to you, the constituted ana
Roverning authority of the state Dem
ocracy, a full account of our steward
"In the meantime, I can not allow
this opportunity to pass without bear
ing testimony in your presence to the
intelligent, faithful and unremitting
labor of the vice chairman of the cam
paign committee, Judge S. W. Hager;
ot our very able, forceful and con
scientious secretary, W. O. Davisj of
H. V. McChesney, chairman of' the
speakers' bureau, tho value of whfaso
work, day and night, 1b beyond any
power ot expression r and each mem
ber of tho campaign committee,- ,frpm

They have certainly fought a gbod
flght and kept the faith Their labors
havo been supplemented and, jhelr
hfinds upheld by the members , of the
state central and executive commit
tees in their respective counties by
the county and precinct chairmen, by
the Democratic speakers, who havo
contributed freely of their time 'and
their talents toward expounding' the
principles of Democracy upon the
stump, and last, but not least, by the
earnest and conscientious support of
the Democratic press of the state.
"A few words as to national poll
tics, and the condition of the parties
throughout the country. Tho Repub
lican party Is today hopelessly rent
in twain. Its houso is divided, but not
over any real question of nationafypol-,
icy or abiding political principles, but
is divided largely by a personal quar
rel and political feud between the .two
chief leaders of the Republican party;
one the president of the United
States, tho other the only living ex
rresldent. "It has gone the way of the old
Democratic party of 1860, when John
C. Breckinridge led a bolt against the
nomination of Stephen A. Douglass.
The feeling between the Republican
factions Is even more bitter, and tho
split in tho party more deep-seated
pnd lasting than in the seventies and
eany eiginies, wnen. jarass u. uiame
and Roscoe Conkllng fought for su
premacy. Tho Democratic party has
v.alted long, but It la now coming into
its own. . ,
Taft and Roosevelt.
"The Republican party, as led. by
President Taft, represents the reac
tionary or so-called 'stand pat' or high
tariff element of .the party who : are
row in ofllce, and whoso thirst for
spoils is so insatiate that they desire
to hold on to the pilot-wheel of tho
United States government at any cost.

and some bad, but it is clear that they

that they could not be put into effect

the Progressives through any miracle
could oloct a president or secure a

"The strike at Lawrence and in

has-taught one good leeson. It has
Brought eut the fact that the Ameri-
'cari Wdofen company instead of using
tho tariff for the purpose of protect
ing AmerlcsH labor and endeavoring-
to uphold the American wage earner's
standard of living has been using im

"The same conditions regarding the
effect of the tariff on the coat of cloth
ing have been found to exist in the
steel Industry of the United States.
It has made a few men enormously
rich at tho expense of the many.
"On the question of the tariff the
Progressives are as- firmly wedded to
their Idols as tho Taft Republi
cans. They hold out no-hope of relief
to the American farmer, wage earner
ci ordinary business- man. In all of
his speeches Mr; Roosevelt avoids
making any definite stand upon this
"Tariff For Revenue Only."
"The Democratic party's position,
as expressed in its. platform, and
enunciated by Us candidate for presi
dent, is clear and1 unequivocal. I may
add that one qf the- prime reasons
why! am a Democrat and nave always
been a Democrat, as- my father was
before me, is the fact that I beliove
firmly that the United States govern
ment has no moral right to levy a
dollar's tax under the guise of a pro
tective tariff or in any other way fcr
the benefit of any individual or corpo
ration, but should be limited solely
to collecting taxes for the support of
the government itself; in other words,
n 'tariff for revenue only
"Kentucky is, in the main, an agri
cultural state. A majority of the peo

Myi life has been spent upon a farm

i nlBirig corn, wheat and tobacco, as
well as sheep, hogs and cattle, I know
from, practical experience the effect

of the, profit which Is" rightly hlB goes
to swell the dividends of some pro
tected, manufacturing industry.
"Fifty-eight years ago tho Republi
can party came into being. It was
created and organized as a radical,
militant and afcgresalve 'young man's'
party. After tho repeal of the Mis
souri Compromise In tho spring ot
1854 at tho instance of the slave-holding
Interests, tho Republican party
sprung Into being as an organized
rrotest against the furthor extension
of human slavery into the territories.
It was not then a high-tariff party. Pro
tection wa3 not ono of tho cardinal
principles of the original Republican
party. That policy came afterwards
itb the Civil war and reconstruction

It was really a party of principle,

"After tho war, when the Republi
can party had bocomo tho dominant
political force in this country, the big
business interests turned to ft by a
process of gravitation. Every year tho
interests tightened their grip upon
the Republican party. They financed
Republican campaigns and in return
waxed fat on tariff legislation at the
hands of that party. Today Wall street
and Its allied Interests are divided be
tween Taft and Roosevelt. Perkins,
Morgan and McCormlck are supporting;
Roosevelt, while (the Cafn6gle and
Rockefeller Interests favor Mr. Taft.
"In the groat cities of the east!
there are fabulous fortunes; most of
them amassed since the Civil War by
virtue ot a protective tariff. On some

t.e did so he was- met by a demoniac
cry that froze the genial current ot
his blood, and at the same moment a
strange animal sunk its claws deep
into the poor man's shoulder. The at
