DEFINING THEIR fQSfflQN.
The Minnes6lateiiidei!aGy gate their
creed nnd program to the woi'ld yester
day and foreshadowed the attitude
•which the Democratic national conven
tion may take at Chicago, f-,
With respect to the tariff, the Minne-'
gota Democrats must be credited with
an exhibition of candor certainly not
habitual with their party, It has gen
erally been the custom for Democrats
throughout the country to testify their
disapprobation of the Republican policy
by juggle word3 which mean noth
ing or by a call for a tariff-for-revenue
only. Yesterday the Minnesota Deni
crats came squarely out with this de
"We are opposed to the theory of pro
tection, as a manifestation of the prin
ciple of paternalism in politics, with
which our party is continually at war."
There can be nothing more explicit
than that, and it that is to be the atti
tude of the party in this critical year,
the Republicans can hardly desire any
change in it. The Democrats, after de
claring hostility to tiie principle of pro
tection, proceed to asseverate their ad
herence to "laws by which the revenues
of the nation shall be accomodated to
the needs of the government, economic
ally administered within its legitimate
sphere, which shall make commerce
and industry free and shall guard their
freedom when attained." And that is
a roundabout way of saying that they
•want free trade or'a system as near
free xrade as^they can get, like that of
England for instance, which levies dut
ies on 20 articles like liquors, tea and
coffee, some chemicals and tobacco.
It is gratifying to see the Democrats
come out so squarely against protection
both as a theory and a practice,for they
csin never win on such a platform.. The
Republican party holds solidly to the
essential policy of protection, They do
not all agree as to the extent to which it
is necessary to carry the principle, but
the majority of the party, it may safely
be said, are firm in the belief that the
traditional policy of moderate protec
tion first proposed by Hamilton for the
development and establishment of our
own manufaetui'es, is necessary for the
industrial welfare of the country, and
they have a long series of magnificent
results to which they may point as con
firmatory of their position.
Opposition to protection will defeat
the Democratic or any other party
•which wages a campaign on that basis.
And with respect to their fiscal policy
the Minnesota Democrats have placed
themselves in hostility to the principles
of sound finance. They advocate the
use of both gold and silver. That is all
right but they go on to say that the
sole function of the government is to
open the mints to free coinage of dol
lars (silver they prefer) and "if there
has been a sufficient fluctuation in the
value of either to make the existing
ratios unequal, then to readjust the
ratios so that the number of grains of
either mecal in unit of coinage, the dol
lar, shall be equivalent in value." That
is to say, they would have free coinage
of dollars which would have to be re
minted continually to follow the fluctu
ation of the silver market, which is a
financial absurdity. They propose free
coinage without reference to the outside
world's ratio. Change of ratio as they
proposo would not help silver under
fiee coinage unless all nations agree to
a common ratio and then the change of
standard would demonetize immense
quantities of silver, The Minnesota
Democrats have made a bad mess of it.
They are not for sound and honest dol
lars. The Republican party is.
On the issues the Democrats have
made the state campaign will be fought
And the Republicans hold the vantage
ground as against Democrats and third
party people.—Minneapolis Journal.
Your Uncle Holm an attempted to
tack on an amendment to the army bill
the other day which wasjnot germane
to the bill, or, in other words, was one
of those pernicious tricks known as a
rider to an appropriation bill. The
rules of the House only allow such an
amendment when it provides for a re
duction of expenses. Mr. Crain- of
Texas made the point of order that
Holman's amendment did not reduce
expenses, but simply provided for de
ferring the payment of a debt that was
obligatory upon the government. There
has been hardly anything said on the
floor of the House that has caused the
Indiana note shaver to squuni as did
this point from his fellow Democrat.
The reason is^that it applied not only to
tfi© ^amendment under consideration
but to the whole policy of alleged re
trenchment and reform of which Hol
xnan is the leader. There is hardly a
single item of the retrenchment effected
thus far by the five-cent Congress but
i«hat will simply be crowded over on
to future Congresses as deficiencies,
