Kovoruor nt tlio campaign opening at
YoungBtown who gave a clean bin of

these ofllclnls, were the bonollclarles
of these Irregularities? Among them
nono other than George U. Cox,
yhoso hank was made one of tho spo
clal depositories of the state.
George D. Cox.
He Is and ought to bo th'e para
mount Isouo In this campaign. Cox,
the man who more than any other
Ohloan, dead or alive, Is the expo
nent of machine politics of the worst
and most corrupt type, controls the
city of Cincinnati and Hamilton coun
ty absolutely, dominates Its a train,
names Its officers, including Its
Judges, who are of the Republican
faith, and at times, we know, at
tempts to dlotate and control their
doolstpn. This 1a tho oamo man of
whom President Tuft spoke 'lu 1905
I remember the, eloquent wo'da of
Mr. Harding's Kenton speech on the
subject of honesty in politics. I
wonder If George D. Cox Is his Ideal
whon ho refers to tho honest man In
politics? Whom did ho have In
mind when he Said in his Kdnton
"When wo mako every servant of
the people, high or low, genuinely,
not pretendingly, honest, vrn will
cave not hundreds, nor thousands,
but millions of the people's funds."
I confess to the highest regard for
Mr. Harding personally, but I cannot
understand, him when nt the Colum
bus convention In- May, 1904, while
naming the delegates at largo to the
Republican national convention, In
speaking of tho very mai( wno was
so vicious In politics that President
Taft could not vote for him, ho used
"I want to name a great, big, man
ly, modest, but mighty grand marshal

Republican army In Ohio. A man who
as a division commander has been
unconquerable and by sheer forco of
merit and ability, has fo.rced his way
to the very forefront in party coun
sel; modest, I sayy but a man of
ability, who Is wise in counsel, trust

places party principle above person
alty and success .above selfishness.

If Mr. Harding "could yield "defer
ence and devotion" to him in 1904,
what must be his attitude now since
ho has recoivod at Cox's hand the
nomination for the governorship of
the great state of Ohio. Our state
might bo willing to trust Harding'
alone, but not Harding in companion
ship wltn Cox.
Criticism of Harmon's Administration.
The only criticism of Governor
Harmon's administration has been
in connection with tho streot car
strike at Columbus. Those who are
disposed to criticise should remem
ber that strike complications are the
most delicate with which administra
tive officers have to deal; that tho
governor Is absolutely without au
thority to lnterfero save and except
to preserve peaco and good order. He
has no more power to Interfere than
a private Individual, save tho pros
tlgo that clothes hls high office.
There -haa not been a day since tho
disorder bejan that ho has not been
working, in season and out of season!
to bring nbout concessions and an ad
justment with honor to both parties.
' Ills good offices have always beon
at their disposal, and while tho pub
lic has not een kept fully advised
as to what has been doner those, who
think, will appreciate tho fact that as
a mediator ho could not proclaim
from tho housetops tho details of his
conferences or of his act. Those
s who have criticised know only tho
, one side, and It Is unfair for any man
or any set of men to attempt to con
demn a public officer In the discharge
of a public duty, without giving an
opportunity to be heardv The man
who will attempt to mislead tho
Judgment of his associates by unfair
statements and reports will In the
end receive tho censure which his
prejudices and biases deserve. All
such strikes ought to bo settled vol
untarily by the employers and em
ployes with as little delay as possi
ble, In a spirit of fairness to both
sides, and without Inconveniencing
the public for whose benefit, primari
ly, public franchises are presumably
granted. When tho full history of the
strike shall be known, as It will bo
known, the efforts which the gover
nor has mr.do to bring about a peace
able understanding between employer
and employe will redound to his
credit, and ralso him In the high es
timation of this people.
The governor has put the depart
ments of which ho has control upon
a sound business basis, insofar as
present legislation would permit. He
has been handicapped In his efforts
by not having the harmonious and
sympathetic support of tho other de
partments of government.
A Republican governor appointed,
and a Republican senate confirmed,
men In offices which, by every cour
tesy, should have been left for Gov
ernor Harmon to fill. A Repiblican
general assembly has sought to em-
Darrass hl'm at ovcry turn, liopTng to
socuro somo political advantage, In
my humblo Judgment tno peoplo of
Ohio nro entitled to tho best product
of tho best brain of both parties.
The evils of which wo contploln,
tho evils of which Mr. Harding com
plains In IiIb Kenton speech, In so far
as they portoln to Ohio offices, hnvo
grown up for tho most part during
Republican administrations and un
der Republican legislation. The peo
plo of Ohio cannot afford now to
mako a change A state ticket and
a 'legislature In sympathy with tho
governor ought to bo elected, nnd
then they Bhould bo held to strict ac
count at tho bar of public opinion, It
will not do now to "swap horses In
tho midst of tho stream."
What Democracy Stands For.
Ohio Democracy, under tho leader
ship of Governor Harmon, among
othef things, stands for tho further
Improvement of tho public service;
tho Introduction of new business
methods; greater economy In tho ex
penditure of public funds; prosecu
tion of grafte'rs of whatever party; a
further reformation of our tax sys
tem, and a limitation thereof of ten
mills'; fair fflhtT just regulation of all
public utilities; homo rule, especially

as to franchises, It favors an Income
tax amendment to tho constitution.
It demands the election of senators
by a direct voto of the people. It
wants a uniform school book law. It
stands for the principles of the
initiative and referendum. It urges
tho extension of the teaching of agri
jlture. It demands the promotion
of a non-partisan. Judiciary and calls
for Improvement In labor legislation.
Nationally, it demands economy
and business methods In the public
service. It asks a revision of tho
present excessive tariff duties, so as
to reduce the prices to the consumer.
It asks that the burden of tariff tax
ation be taken from the articles of
the cheaper grades. It insists upon
gradual reduction In tariff taxation,
so as to mako It rather a means of
raising revenue than an instrument
After discussing at length tho sub
jects of national extravagance .and
tariff revision, Mr. Pomcrono tald In
Tho evils from which our body
politic has suffered, both stato nnd
national, must be corrected. Tho man
or party who does or encourages
wrongs Is not to be trusted to right
them. The party machines of Cox
and Gutlbert bodo no good to tho peo
ple. If you want Coxlsm continued In
Hamilton county, voto tho Republican
ticket. If you want Its Jurisdiction
extended from Hamilton county to
the capltol nt Columbus, and thenco
throughout tho stato, voto tho Re
publican ticket. But If you want re
formation, sure and certain, voto for
Democracy under tho leadership of
Governor Harmon, whoso master
mind can see tho right, and who haB
the courage to do tho right.
The Republican party of today may
grant some reforms, but if so, it Is
not becauso she loads In reform, but
because she will bo driven to It.
Public sentiment drove her to give
whatever assistance she has given to
the tax problem In Ohio, and to what
ever assistance she has given In
hunting down the graft In the stato
house. There is not a reform In na
tional legislation within tho last ten
years which has not been the re
sult of advocacy by Democracy undor
the leadership of William J. Bryan.
This is true of railroad rate legisla
tion; of the pure food legislation; of
employers' liability law and safety
appliance law, and of every other
Important measure which has been
written upon tho statuto book. Priv

Every measure, stato and national,

What can we expect of Ohio,
where Republican Insurgency Is
rampant with a "stand-pat" plat
form and a "hltched-tlght can
didate for governor" and a
"hltched-tlghtor candidate for
United 8tates senator?"
Our opponents Insist that
graft Is not a party question.
This does not- come well from
those who ofered their protec
tion to the grafters two years
ago and who would be silent
now were they not driven from
under cover by Governor Har
mon. The need of a legal adviser
In full sympathy with the ad

and I trust that the re-election

Timothy S. Hogan, candidate on
the Domocratlc ticket for attorney
general, Is one of the gifted oratora
of Ohio. In his speech at the Demo
cratic campaign opening at Canton lu
made a number of happy hits. His
speech follows in full:
I am grateful to the distinguished
eha'irmnn of tho state executive com
mittco and his 'worthy associates for
the great honor conferred upon mo
in my selection as one of tho trio ol
speakers for this occasion.
It la always an honor to ndvocato
tho principles of true Democracy,
and surely It Is with both pleasure
and pride that I now uphold these
principles at a time when they are
sustained by ballot and by expres
sion throughout this broad land. We
have marched faithfully on behind
the Democratic bannor through years
ana years of disappointment and ad
versity, and Is It any wonder that
our hearts throb with joy and en
thusiasm as we behold the flags of
victory hoisted, one by one, over all
our Democratic citadels?
The armies of Democracy were
never more united, more harmonious,
more confident and moro determined
than now, while the ranks of our Re
publican brothers are scattered hope
lessly. Wo Democrats realize that
our cause Is now, as It has ever been,
a truo and Just and honest and pa
triotic one, whllo a largo portion of
the Republican party has been forced
to open rebellion because of tho
broken promises of their leaders.
Under the alluring theory that the
tariff was created sololy and entire
ly for the protection of the tollers of
this country, the' duties on tho neces
saries of life have been steadily In
creased, until behind tho fortified
walla of a prohibitive tariff, gigantic
combinations and trusts have ' been
formed;, which are accumulating
wealth beyond the dreams of avarice,
whllo tho laboring man, unable to
supply his family with bread and
clothing, Is demanding tho cause of
the high cost of living.
During tho last presidential cam
paign, tho advocates of tho ridiculous
theory that "tho foreigner paid the
tax" were compelled to admit Its fal--lacy,
and In order to perpetuate
themselves In offices and further en
rlchmentf they appealed to tlio vot
ers for re-election by solemnly prom
ising to revise the tariff downward,
and thereby reduce the cost of giv
ing to our people. How that promise
was kept Is now a matter of history.
Senator Aldrlch of Rhode Island, sup
ported by tho other stand-pat sena
tors, and Joseph G. 'Cannon of Illi
nois, supported by our representa
tives In congress from Ohio, effectu
ally throttled all legislation and
forced tho passage of tho most In
iquitous tariff bill we have ever
This wanton violation of the most
sacred promises made before the last
election to the American people, this
perfidy and doublo-deallng an tho
part of our representatives In con
gress, has aroused the righteous In
dignation of overy true American cit
izen. Thousands of the strongest men In
tho Republican party have been
branded "insurgents" by tho "ma
chine," because they have repudiated
Aldrlch and Cannon, and have tho
courage to demand that thoso prom
ises shall be fulfilled.
The disclosures of corruption In
high places, brought to light by
forced Investigation, as notably the
caso In which It is shown that a
momber of tho president's cabinet
was Involved In a gigantic plot to ab
sorb the coal lands of Alaska, cover
ing an area greater than the com
bined coal territory of ' Pennsy.'vanla
and West Virginia; the case (of tho

the huge profits received under a
high tariff, had stolen millions of dol
lars from the government and re
turned three millions of the booty In
tho hopo of defeating crltr.lnal prose
cution, which is now siriKularly de
layed. Thcso arc only a few of tho
reasons why tho citizens of tho na
tion demand that wo give them can
didates In whom they can plary their
trust; whoso promises for a revision
of tho tariff will not be rnado sub
ject to the will and approval of Ald
rlch and Cannon; who will havo the

Time was when the Republican
party was a house united, but how do
we find It now? Tho bitterest at
tacks upon policies df the party are
oontalned in "tho Republican plat
forms of many of the states. Who Is
this new character known as "Tho
Progressive Republican?" Why has
he come? What Is an "Insurgent,"
anyway? A prominent lawyer of
Ohio was asked tho other day his
doflnltlon of a "Progressive Republi
can," and promptly came the re
sponse: "A Progressive Republican Is
a man who loves Democr;Jilc princi
ples, and wonts to adopt tfcem; one

General a Gifted Orator.
who fondly looks back on the days of
Lincoln and sees the danger of stand
ing pA; in short, a Progressive Re
publican la an up-to-date Democrat."
The star of Democracy never
shone with greater splendor than
now; now, when her principles are
advocated by the united members of
her own party and, too, advocated
and adopted by one-halfthe following
of the Republican party. The stand
patter is doomed to defeat. Thero is
Maine, gone Democratic. Rock-ribbed
Republican Maine! Whether It be
due to tho regulars or due to tho
progressives, wo know not; but we
do know that It was the work of a
peoplo interested in tho success and
welfaro of their state and of the na
tion. The people do not like Aldrlch
Ism and Cannonisra. They revolt
against them. Insurgent movement
we learn was weak in Maine. This
being true, what can we expect of
Ohio, where Republican insurgency Is
rampant with a "stand-pat" platform
and a "hltched-tlght candidate for
governor" and a "hltched-tishter can
didate for United States senator?"
Tho glorious victory In Maine is an
inspiration Indeed to Ohio Democ
racy. It Is the most tremendous po
litical upheaval that has taken plnco
In liny ' distinctively New England
stato since Abraham Lincoln was
nominated for president. It fore
tolls overwhelming Republican woo
throughout the country on Nov. 8. If
tho Republicans lost Maine, how can
they hopo to win in Ohio, with Its
strong and aggresslvo Democracy
united under the matchless leader
Judson Harmon tho best governor of
tho best state In the Union? Tho
conservatives must not 'delude them
selves with tho thought that tho new
progressive movement will soon
wano and tho former order of things
bo rostored. The-.Insurgency in tho
Republican party Is a protest against
greed, frenzied finance and monop
oly; nay. more, multitudes in tne
United States have felt long since
that this government, as we havo it,
is not "of the people, for the peoplo
and by the people." Thero is a return
to the principles upon which our na
tion was founded, principles which
havo been but too often almost for
gotten. The Republican candidates for
stato office In Ohio, nt tho Kenton
meeting, committed themselves to
the stand-pat policies. In so doing,
were they standing for the peoplo, or
for the old guard? The answer I
have to give Is not that of a Demo
crat, but that of a Republican dally
paper of Ohio, of emmerit respect
ability and high standing. The Ohio
State Journal of Sept. 14, In speaking
of the Maine election, says editor
ially: "It Is undoubtedly the people's
work. No one must suppose that tho
progressives got together and organ
ized a conspiracy to defeat the Re
publican party. That may be the
stand-pat idea, but it Is far from the
truth. The progressive contingent
was tho creature of a public senti
ment that didn't like tho way things
wore' going. They didn't, like Aldrlch-
Ism, and Cannonfsm, nnd If it wasn't
for this, tho progressives would prob
ably never have been heard ol.
"It was the peoplo opposing rrtaln
prevailing tendencies that projected
the so-called Insurgency In the polit
ical arena. It was not Ueveridgc,
Murdock or LnFollotte. They could
not havo helped It If they had tried.
The r :oplo got the Idea that stand
patlsm was on the sldo of tho Inter
ests. They discerned this attlludo In
tho tariff bill, the railroad bill, tho
ship subsidy bill and In the oppres
sive sway of tho speaker.
"Tho suspicions became regnant In
the formation of party opinion, and
formulated a new expression of Re
publican doctrine, represented In
what is known as progresalveness,
and this now phase of party purpose
seems to dominate tho situation; It
seems to say wo must not occupy the
old camps any longer; wo must move
to new ones, to higher ones, where
the sun of progress shines for altl"
With such an argument, from such
a source, what more Is needed to
convlnco a reasonable man that the
days of the stand-pat platform are
A few words as to tho campaign fn
our own state. Two years ago we
candidates on the Democratic Btate
ticket exposed the graft and corrup-'
tlon that existed among Republican
officials at the statehouse. The can
didates on the Republican ticket re
mained silent and by their silence
protected the guilty and unworthy.
Wo submit to the voters of this state
that substantially every charge that
was then made has been found true.
Countless graft dollars have already,
been returned to the state and there
aro many more coming when the
truth is ascertained. Our opponents
Insist that graft Is not a party ques
tion. This does not come well from
those who offered their protection to
the grafters two years ago and who
would be silent upon that question
now were they not driven fr-mi un
der cover by Governor Harmon.
If I am elected attorney general of
Ohio I will endeavor to do my duty
In all things, and prosecute graft
without any reference to party. Tho
need of a legal adviser In full sym
vathy with the "administration Is
most apparent, and I trust that the
re-election of Governor Harmon will
also insure the election of all his
associates on the state tickcU
The people want a Democratic
reign in the glorious state of Ohio,
and I think the time has come when
we will havo it; when we can usher
Into the massive statehouse our hon
ored candidates, one and all, and bid
them serve In the good old Demo
cratic way the way of honest, noble
hearted Judson Harmon, and the
great party which he represents.
