party and its nominees stand for. He
fhasacterized Governor Wilson as a
genuine progressive and predicted that

6aid in part: "The democratic party
and its candidate for governor de
mands the initiative and referendum.
It demands the abolition of graft and
tn jackpot. It demands the abolitioa
of public extravagance. !t demands
equalization and its shocking inequal
ity in taxation. It demands the insti
tution of real reform in place of fake
reform which has disgraced the pres
ent administration. It demands the
creation of a public utilities commis
sion to enforce decent rates and ser
vice by utility corporations.
"It demands the corrupt practice act
limiting the election expenses of the
candidates and the requiring of pub
lication of same. It demands the re
form of the revenue laws of the state.
It demands that the constitution be
amended so as to make it amendable
by the people. It demands the enact
ment and enforcement of Just and effi
cient laws for the protection of the
lives, limbs and health of employes. It
! demands the enactment and enforce-
ment of fair and just laws which will
compensate employes for Injuries sus
tained in dangerous occupations.
"These demands of the democratic
party embody the needs of modern so
ciety and modern government. Let
