TALK ABOUT "BUMPER" CROPS
EVIDENTLY OUT OF PLACE!

ALL FAVOR FARMER
BUT ONLY THE PROGRESSIVE
PLATFORM IS EXPLICIT ON
OMITTED BY REPUBLICANS
Democrats Neglect Even to Mention
Child Labor, Prison neform, Own
ership of Alatkan Coal Jin (I Other
Matters of Vital Import.
All tho plntforms havo kind words
for the farmer. All platforms nhvnyH
havo. Hut politics liiid polltlulana can
do Ices to affect Ills llfo than tliu lives
Df most otlirr men In thu country.
An early spring, a lato fall, warm
rain, Rood scud, kooiI tools, kooiI
htock, Kood maniin! and lots of It
they make thu working conditions for
Iho farmer and llx his pay. Laws
can keep tho blight of consumption
from tho sweatshop they can't keep
the blighting frost from the unripe
All parties pledge themselvi-B to
parcels post. That Is good. It seems
that this obvious reform Is at last
In sight after thirty years of agita
tion, (ireat Is the power of Invisible
government, able to block for three
decades a measure as unanimously
demanded and as plainly needed as
parcels post. It will prove a great
boon to the farmer.
All parties also pledge themselves
to a policy of extending credit, under
governniMit supervision, to tho farm
ers at lower rates of Interest than
they now pay. Unless the country
hankers are taken care of under tho
new arrangement, It will bo many
years before anything like tills comes
to pass. For thu country bankers,
uifited, are more powerful In tho pol
itic or this country than any other
clafB, tar more powerful than a united
Wall Ktieet would be.
There Is one thing far more vital to
the prosperity of the farmer than n
lower rati' of Interest or parcels post,
and that In good roads.
flood roads, it has been scientifical
ly estimated, would add from $10 to
$'.'U an aero to thn nverngo vnltio of
Mississippi valley farms. On this
point, t-ttaugely enough, the Repub
lican platform says nothing, for tho
Republicans usually have been liberal
In support of Internal Improvements.
.Strangely enough, also, tho Demo
crats advocate national, assistance to
a road building program, for Demo
crftii used to denounce such a plan
(is an Invasion of states rights. Their
I lank iiniln:
AY favor national aid to statu and
local Mitlioritles In tho construction
at I inriinteuancn of post roads."
Tin 1'iogressive plank Is yet moro
i .pll'lt and advanced:
Wo recognize tho vital Importance)
of food roads, and wo pledge our party
'ii tostrr their extension In every prop
r way, and wo favor tho early con
r'tuctlon of national highways."
Tin Democratic platform, which Is
clili'Ily conspicuous for Its omissions,
neglecting even to mention such ques
tions up child labor, Initiative, referen
dum, recall, public ownership of Alas
Inn cool, tariff commission, prison ro
form, the caro of tho Immigrant, In
cludes ono extraordinary plank which
Is oven prcpopullstlc. It goes back
to thn (irnnger days.
It advocates tho abolition by con
gress of the Chicago board of trado
and all similar "organized gambling

VERMONT VOTE MISLEADING
Conditions Ara Different In The Great
Vcat, Where Roosevelt lo
Eailly In Lead.
Tho vote of Vermont was full of
promise for tho Democrats. Thnt fact
Hood out clearly In tho returns. An
accession of Democratic confidence
v.mb a natural result of tho first tout
of New England sentiment Hut New
England Is a small part of the country
and the conditions nro different In the
Look at California. There the Demo
cratic vote In tho Btate-wldo primaries
was lnslgnlllcant. Tho result of the
test of public sentiment which was
almost as conclusive as a regular elec
tion, indicated clearly that lioosevelt
can easily beat Wilson. As for the
candidate of the administration Repub
licans, any man who believes that
Mr. Taft has a chnncti for the electoral
voto of California Is a miracle of
hopefulness or a victim of profound
iL'norancu of tho conditions In the
largest and most populous state of
the Pacific coast.
Kven If the Democrats had carried
Malno they would merely have held a
state already In their possession. If
they had made a better showing there
than they ever did before since Maine
llrst became Republican, which they
did not, It would havo proved nothing
outside of Now Knglaud. Tho position
of thn west will not be affected In the
least by any such tests of the senti
ment of the northeastern corner of
A Few "Ifs" for Every Man.
If you are a wage earner oil have
a vital Interest In the tariff you pay
on clothing, shoes and the necessary
articles of household use. That tariff
is too high now.
If you aro a wage-earner you also
have an Interest In keeping your
wages from being cut below their
present marks. Doing away with the
tariff altogether will divide your
wages In half or wlpo them out.
If you aro the father or thn mother
of children you aro unwilling that
their health should bn Impaired and
their lives shortened by night labor
and unsanltnry factory conditions. In
dustrial legislation will save your chll
If you nre the kind of manufacturer
who takes care of his employes, aro
you willing that your humanitarian
measures should ptove a handicap be
cause your competitors undersell you
by refusing to adopt them? An equal
izing law will readjust competition on
a fair basis.
If you are growing old and find to
ward tho end of a useful llfo that thu
nature of your occupation and tho cost
of living havo prevented saving
against tho years when your work Is
done, then you will bo Interested In a
national plan whereby you may bo

If you are In Btep with tho times
you will want to share In tho advan

established in other lands.
You will want a perfected parcels
post to bring the markets cheaply and
quickly to your doors.
You will wnlcomo tho purgo and the
uplift of equal BUffrago.
You will advocate a patriotic use ol
the Panama canal.
Anil If any ono or all of these prop
osltlons has set you thinking, consider
how theso desirable Interests may be
best assured for you and for your
neighbors. Consider how best you can
get In lino with tho men and with
tho movement which has tho deep-Hel

things to pass.
