charge that he was seeking to end rep
resentative government and assailed
the democratic party for its position
in regard to the doctrine of states'
"The democratic party," he said,
"looks back to the dead, exploded the
ory that the problems which affect

rights. There is pnly one entity which
is able to control the big corporations
and that is Uncle Sam."
Declaring for the abolition of child
labor, Colonel Roosevelt continued:
"Here again comes in the utter
Bourbonism of states' rights. We
hope that the state themselves will
prevent child labor, but if they do not,
we declare that the child is the great
est asset of the nation, and that the
nation itself shall protect them.

Phoenix and declared himself opposed

in Mexican affairs.
"The situation is grave, as all of
us know," said Governor Hunt, "but I
