THE PLATFORM IS SILENT.
Noted Lawyer Exposes the Flimsiness
of Promises Made to Workingmen by
Perkins and His Candidate, Who
Stands For Private Monopoly.
"The new party pledges itself to so
cial and industrial justice and. specific
ally to 'work unceasingly for effective
legislation looking to the prevention of
occupational diseases, overwork, invol
untary unemployment and other in
jurious effects incident to modern in
I dustry, but nowhere in that
' long and comprehensive platform
j can there be found one "word
j approving the fundamental right of
labor to organize or even recognizing
, this right without which all other
grants and concessions for improve
ment of the condition of the working-
man are futile. The platform promises
social and industrial justice, but does
I not promise industrial democracy. The
i justice which it offers is that which
j the benevolent and wise corporation
1 is prone to administer through its wel
fare department There is no promise
' of that justice which free American
j workingmen are striving to secure for

He urges a careful study of the new

upon labor, noting not only "WHAT IT

Mr. Brandeis then lays bare the la
bor record of the trusts, declaring that
"great trusts the steel trust, the sug-

The result was that the bulk of

HON. WOODROW WILSON,
of New Jersey.
HON. THOS. R. MARSHALL,
HON. J. CAMPBELL CANTRILL,
of Scott county.
Gov. Wilson's Courage.
There f are few public men of the
courge of Governor Wilson. He stands
for aprinciple and dares defend it ev
en at the risk of failure to realize 'his
ambition'. He had rather be right
than President, and the people will
love him for making enemies of those
who wear the livery of Democracy, the
better to serve the devil of Plutocra
cy. It was Senator Smith of New Jer
sey and his clique who, twenty years
ago made it impossible for the Demo
crats to carry out their platform prom
ises as to the tariff. He was a re
actionary then and he is a leactionary
now. He wanted to misrenresnnt zhe
State of New Jersey again in the
United States Senate and claimed that
his advocacy of a high protective tariff
is in the interest ot the working man,
a most arrant absurdity. The men
who grow rich by the tariff are not the
friends of labor and no tariff was ever
designed for the laboring man.
Governor Wilson has no patience
with such utterances or with the men
who make them. He boldly declared
that Senator Smith must be beaten
and by a man who stands for policies
changed by circumstances and altered
by necessities of pontics. In other
words that he would stand for no man
who does not stand squarely on the
progressive platform adopted at Balti
more. The result was Smith was
beaten by 20.000. Al honor to such a
man, and he is sure to receive it from
the people who love honesty in politics
and uprightness and integrity in men.
The Trusts and Teddy.
When Governor Wilson stated that
the crusts grew and flourished faster
under his administration than ever be
fore in the history of the country,
Colonel Roosevelt threw several fits
and indulged in his usual inlenffierate
language in denouncing the, charge and
the man who made it. But Governor
Wilson is not given to making "state
ments that are not supported by the
, Senator La Follette, one of the most
progressive men in the Republican
party, who was ruthlessly cast aside
by Roosevelt in his inordinate .ambition
to be President againrnakes the state
ment, after foil investigation, that
when Roosevelt became President the
total amount of the stock and bond is
sues of all combinations and trusts, in
cluding the railways then in combina
tion, was only ?3784,uQO.0U0. When
Roosevelt turned the country over to
Taft the total capitalization of the
trusts and combination amounted' to
the enormous sum of $31,67, 000,000.

Thoughts on Education.
Educctect people are often so stupid
as to make one doubt whther the
poor can gain all by education. But,
on the other hand, uneducated people
are often so wise that we fear they

have nothing to gain, by being edu
cated. In short, the modern methods

Tax in Italy-

Italy is one of the most highly pro
tected countriesjof Europe. It is fa
mous as a country "flowing with milk
Yet they never'talk about Italy, do
the upward revisionist.
Italy put heavy duties on both agri
cultural and manufactured imports.
She pays her people exceedingly low
wages. She charges them very high
prices for the necessities of ilfe. They
emigrate in large numbers.
To understand the situation clearly
we must go back to 1887. About
that time a violent revolution in the
system ot Italian customs was brought
about. A powerful political group of
textile manufacturers joined forces
for their own ends with'a powerful po
litical group of large landowners.
Tariffs were heavily increased. But
not on everything. That powerful
band of textile manufacturers took
good care that lesser manufacturers,
who made articles needed in the tex
tile factories, were not enabled to put
up their prices.
Hand in hand with the powerful
manufacturers the big landowners
came out "for a slice of the tariff
pie." In order that they should be
sufficienty compensated for being in
politics, the landowners had a heavy
tax placed on wheat. In Italy it is
only the big landowners who grow
wheat. Three out of every four land
owners in Italy are possessors of small
properties, cultivating fruit for wine.
They have to buy a considerable part
of the wheat they eat. So it happened
that where one large farmer got big
ger profits, three small fruit farmers
got hit. That is the way protection
invariably works out. What is one
man's protection is anhother man's
Hark, however, this further result
of the Italian tax on'wheat: Millions
of Italians never eat wheat bread, ex
cept in cases of illness or special festi
vals. They make a bread maize. In
this and in other respects the standard
of living of the Italian people is very
low, because prices are too high.
An enormous fiscal and protective
tax was also put upon sugar. The
prices giewso high that Italian farm
ers watched their "oranges, lemons,
peaches, and other products of a warm
and generous sun rot on their trees in
order that the 33 manufacturers of the
sugar syndicate might levy upon con
sumers a yearly tribute."
Far and away the chief of the Ital
ian industries are silk reeling and
ithiead throwing. These industries
have been seriously hampered by pro
tection. And Italy is the home of the
One of the chief troubles of Italy is
that the general rise in prices has so
greatly lessened the purchasing power
of the wages of the people that the
great mass of the small dealers and
the workingmen and women suffer bit
terlv. It is calculated that while ten Ital
ians lose by protection, only one
stands any chance of gaining. He
does not always gain, for the country
does not progress. The interests of
ItFly are sacrificed to the one in ten.
In other words excessive tariffs in
creased the cet of living to the Italian
people just as the Payne-Aldrich law

It is suggested that the bustard, a

in America. It weighs from 14 to 18"
