In presenting Theodore Roosevelt as
a candidate of the Republicans fof the
vice presidency, that party has beyond
question placed by the side of McKinley
the strongest running mate possible.
He not only addsthe greatest strength
that was possible to be added, but It
might be safely asserted that no candi
date for the vice presidency would have
added force to the McKinley ticket.
With any of the candidates for the
rlat-e Roosevelt was certainly not an
applicant the ticket would have been
made up of McKinley, the kite, and
somebody else, the tail. With Roosevelt
there is no tail. It Is like the modern
tailless kite, only there are two of them,
and it is in the political sky instead of
the ether itself.
Roosevelt has bfen named despite any
wire pulling or any leading, and was
the spontaneous choice, of the masses
of the delegates in the convention. His
nomination was forced upon him. Those
who were for him were swept in the
tide toward his nomination. Those who
were against him were swept away
with it.
Roosevelt is a typical American; lie
is as popular in the west and south as
in the north and east. He is claimed by
New Mexico and by New England. He
is an all round American. He has had
a varied life's experience which i3 al
lotted to but few men who have not yet
attained their forty-third year.
A graduate of Harvard at the age of
22, he went into poiitics quite as natur
allv as he went onto the ranch or into
the army. , Two years after he left col
lege he was a prominent candidate for
mayor of New York; when but 28 a civil
service commissioner. A few years la
ter, in lS!)",and for two years thereafter
he was at the head of the New York po
lice board.
The crooks and criminals, political
and legal, never received such a driving
out into the open as under the reins of
his administration in the office of police
commissioner. j .
At the time of the blowing up of the
"Maine" he was assistant secretary of
the navy. His resignation of this office
to enter, and assist in the organization
of the Rough Riders is recent and fa
miliar history. His distinguished con
duct in action in Cuba, his gallantry,
his courage, his humanity and gentle
ness made him the pride of his regiment
and the hero of the Santiago campaign.
His political battle in New York state
was a succession of ovations followed
by the elevation to the high office of ex
ecutive of the Kmpire state.
His determination to cleanse political
ways and byways has endeared him to
those interested in honest and real re
form. His independence, cleanness,
fearlessness and bravery in civic as well
as military life make him a hero in
peace as he was in war.
He is as familiar with the west as
the rollicking cowboy, and is more cul
tured and better equipped in a literary
capacity than a typical New England
As an author alone he is famous. His
books on "Ranche Life in the West'
and his histories covering the navies
of the world and of the sea battles of
this country, put him in the front rank
of authors and historians. His recent
articles on Cromwell show that he is
no stranger to the historic periods of
the past. His many addresses, essays.
interviews, articles and speeches are
pointed, incisive and elevating. To his
foresight as Assistant Secretary of the
Navy perhaps more than to any other
man in Washington previous to the act
ual outbreak of hostilities with Spain
in no small part, may be attributed the
great Dewey victory at Manila.
The Republican party has certainly
named a double-header.
The principles upon which the Repub
lican party will go to the country and
ask an endorsement have been formula
ted and announced at Philadelphia. Re
liance is placed largely upon the party
record In connection with the victories
in war and the revival in business and a
promised continuation of existing condi
On the subject of the currency the
platform says:
"We it ew our allegiance to the prin
ciple of the gold standard and declare
our confidence in the wisdom of the
legislation of the Fifty-sixth congress
by which the parity oi' all our money
and the stability of our currency on a
gold basis has been secured. We recog
nize that the rates are a potent factor
in production and business activity and
for the purpose of further equalizing
anil of further lowering the rates of in
terest we favor such monetary legisla
tion as will enable the varying needs of
the season and of all sections to be pro
perly met in order that trade may be
evenly sustained, labor steadily employ
ed and commerce enlarged. The volume
of money in circulation was never so
great rer capita as it is today. We de
clare our steadfast opposition to the free
and unlimited coinage of silver."
The trust question is referred to as
"We recognize the necessity and pro
priety of the honest co-operation of cap

and especially to extend our rapidly in
creasing foreign trade, but we condemn
all conspiracies and. combinations in

monopolies, to limit production or to
control price and favor such legislation

all such abuses, protect and promote
competition and secure the rights ot
production, laborers and all who are en
gaged in industry and commerce."
The tariff utterance is found In the
"We renew our faith in the policy of
protection of American labor. In that
policy our industries have been estab
lished, diversified and maintained. By
protecting the home market, the compe
tition has been stimulated and produc
tion cheapened. Opportunity to the in
ventive genius of our people has been
secured and wages in every department
of labor maintained at high rates, high
er now than ever before, always distin
guishing our working people in their
better condition of life from those of any
competing country, enjoying the bless
ing of American common schools, secure
in the right of self-government and pro
tected in the occupancy of their own
markets, their constantly increasing
knowledge and still have enabled them
finally to enter the markets of the
world. We favor the associated policy
of reciprocity so directed as to open our
markets on favorable terms for what we
do not ourselves produce in return for
free foreign markets."
More effective restriction of foreign
immigration is demanded.
Reference is made to the weakness of
American shipping interests but no en
dorsement of the Hanna-Payne ship
subsidy scheme appears.
The customary resolution In regard to
pensions appears.
The president's policy regarding the
civil service is commended.
Southern methods of eliminating the
negro vote are declared to be revolu
tionary. Improvement of public highways is
endorsed to the extent of advising the
people and the states to do the work
Extension of the rural free delivery is
favored; also reclamation of arid lands.
Promise of statehood is held out to
Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma-
Regarding reduction of war taxes the
platform says:
"The Dingley act amended to provide
sufficient revenue for the conduct of the
war has so well performed its work that
t has been possible to reduce the war
debt In the sum of $40,000,000. So ample
are the government's revenues, and so
great is the public confidence in the in
tegrity of its obligations that its newly
funded two per cent bonds sell at a
premium. The country is now justified
n expecting and It will be the Dolicv of
the Republican party to brine about a
reduction of the war taxes."
Government construction and owner
ship of the Nicaragua canal is favored.
The reference to the colonial policy of
the administration takes on an apolo
getic tone, but the promise of independ
ence for Cuba is renewed.
On the whole the platform appears to
be lacking in the old time ring and
bears evidence of halting and uncer

wing of the Democratic state conven
tion reconvened this morning, seating
all contesting delegations in favof of

tions in his favor gave a total of 375 out
of 4S1 of the state representation. Res

Prohibitionists Charge Other Parties
With Being Whisky Supporters.
When the Prohibition convention
committee on resolutions attempted to
confine the declarations of the conven
tion to a simple platform, the mem
bers attempted a piece of work which
the convention speedily undid.
Van Bennett of Columbus started the
melee. He said: "This thing of coming
here and going home and failing to
fight the liquor traffic is all nonsense.
We want something which Is worthy
of the consideration of other partiea.
Resolutions of flapdoodle are nonsense.
Let's do something. The Republican
party has legalized the rum power.
All of the drunkenness In the United
States belongs to the Republican
Mr. Bennett supplemented these re
marks with a plea for the adoption of
resolutions. After two hours' debate
the fesult was found to be as follows:
'Whereas. The United States su
preme court has declared that the
liquor traffic has no inhefent rights; for
legislative body to legalize a traffic
that has no Inherent rights, that manu
factures drunkards and is prolific In
causing poverty, crime and premature
death, is not only dishonest but is a
great public calamity. Our govern
ment was formed to do good. Tne oath
bound obligation governs senators and
representatives to require them to en
act laws to Mess and not to curse the
people. Prohibition. Is a blessing; li
cense is a curse.
Recognizing that a free and untram
melled ballot is the safeguard of out
iberties and the most potent factor
in the administration of our govern
ment, we therefore denounce the vin
dictive legislation of the Populist and
Republican legislation of four years ago
by which they so deformed our ballot
law as to make it extremely difficult
for new and minority parties to exer
cise the rights of suffrage, and that it
was an outrage upon popular govern
ment and a lasting stigma on the par
ties perpetrating it, and we demand
the immediate restoration of the orig
inal law.
We tender our most sincere thanks
to out1 friends in Shawnee county for
their fidelity and loyalty to our pro
hibitory cause for petitioning and la
boring with the legislature and thereby
defeating that' provision of senate bill
No. 8 which aimed to repeal the sec
tion of our present law which imposes
the penalty of imprisonment for thirty
davs for the first offense under tne
While there are many pertinent ques
tions of government to which we could
give our suffrage we confidently be
lieve that when our party comes into
power it will be perfectly competent
to maintain a stable government and
enact iust and efficient laws for the
control of all our possessions and for
all social, commercial, industrial ana
political interests. And while we rec
ognize the liquor traffic is the greatest
foe to civilization, the arch enemy of
the human race, the citadel of the
forces that corrupt government, de
grade politics and promote poverty
and crime, we earnestly urge and in
vite to join in with us in tull fellow
ship all those citizens of Kansas who
on this one foremost issue of enforcing
our prohibitory law are with us agreed
in the full belief that this party, n
elected, will strengthen the law bv
adequate legislative enactment and will
enforce it to the fullest extent. We
further pledge ourselves to the people
of Kansas that if they will elect the
candidates we nominate that they will
close every known illegal drinking
place in the commonwealth.
"We proclaim to the country that in
the establishment of the army canteen
by executive power over and asainst
a law supported by Republicans. Dem
ocrats and Populists, the constitution
ality of which has never been passed
upon by the highest court ot tne iana,
is an outrage against justice, an injury
to the public service and a vicious
course to destroy the boys who gal
lantv, patriotically and fearlessly of
fered their lives for the defense of their
country; and we hereby condemn the
president and his attorney general for
usurping the authority to nullify a
law passed in the interests of the na
tion, our brave soldiers and the homes
of our people in the states as well as
in our new possessions abroad.
"We deplore the open and manifest
indifference of our state and county
officials to the open violations of the
prohibitory law. and we charge the Re
publican, Populist and Democratic par
ties in Kansas with utterly ignoring
this issue both in platform and prin
ciple. "We are opposed to all trusts and
mnnonolies that discriminate against
one class of people to the detriment
of another, afid we demand such legis
lation as shall iirotect the laboring
classes from unjust exactions and en
able them to enjoy the fruits of their
toil. We believe that profit sharing
and arbitration should be substituted
for strikes and bloodshed."

In Seconding the Nomination of
President McKinley.
Convention Hall, Philadelphia, June
21. Mr. Yerkes of Kentucky in second
ing the nomination of President Mc
Kinley said:
Mr. Chairman and Fellow Delegates:
The supreme thought in my mind at
this moment is what remains to be
said that ought to be said; and that in
time of danger one's thought naturally
turns to his home. I recall that in the
historic Philadelphia convention of 1856
liberty-loving men from my state sat as
delegates in that body. In contrast
with this immense audience this huge
hail with its splendor of decoration and
its superb equipment, that gathering
would seem to be of small import but in
devotion to freedom, intensity and in
force of utterance, in eternal results that
assemblage has no peer in the history
of conventions. Forty years after that
body adjourned Kentucky for the first
time gave her electoral vote to a Re
publican presidential candidate, Major
William McKinley (applause). Recog
nized as a citadel of Democracy she had
capitulated to the Republicans in the
noted state campaign of 1895. She was
Republican in 1S96, is Republican to
day (applause) and as such seconds this
"It would be, gentlemen, but a fitting
tribute to our president and to the in
dustrial, diplomatic and martial vic
tories of his administration if every
state placed the stamp of its approval
upon his course of conduct; and if op
portunity were given there would join
in this majestic chorus of national en
dorsement voices comins across the
waters from our new to our old shores
voices coming from our insular pos
sessions to this venerable city where
a nation was born and - consecrated
to liberty, to freedom and to independ
ence and where more fitting place for
this universal chorus to sound forth
than in this old time city?
"Now, gentlemen, these voices that
would come from abroad would ring at
every home from which for the first
time the flag of freedom floats, and that
by the orders of our president. Fur
thermore, today they are linked to our
progress and to our destiny, and thei'ein
stable government, domestic tranquil
ity and Christian civilization are as
sured to them; and just as Lincoln's
name sounds to the emancipated slave
and his children so the name of .Presi
dent McKinley will be to those liber
ated millions of political serfs. (Ap
plause.) We believe that with the same leader
ship, the same policies that gave us vic
tory in 1SP6, that same winning will be
repeated in 1900. 'I hen it was a cam

promise of better days, of trying to
teach the people to trust and rely in our
plans and purposes. Now, it will be a
campaign in which we will show what
has been accomplished, prophesies ful
filled and pleges redeemed, it will be a
representation of actualities of acts.
You will have a rapid protralture, you
will have a shifting panorama for the
present as compared with the past and
whether this comparison be made by
the speaker on the hustings, by the pub
lic press, in the marvelous lines of mod
ern progress, it will present an argu
ment so forcible that the minds of the
people can not escape it. If there be
left among us plain practical common
every day sense then the columns that
followed President McKinley's leader
ship four years ago, will be doubled in
enthusiasm and In numbers this year.
In 1896 we gave you an old representa
tive slaye-holding state. By so doing,
we removed one charge against our par
ty, that it was sectional. The Ohio river
was crossed; Republicanism marched
southward and this sectional line disap
peared from the map. We will do it
again.(Applause).' We will still show the
people in the north, in the south and
the east that Republicanism to use
the language of our distinguished
chairman means action and is always
moving forward. A Kentuckian, a
lover of my native state, believing in
the integrity and honesty of her citi
zens. I have the fullest confidence in
them; 1 believe they will make final re
sponse to every argument and that the
response will be made at our polls in
next November in electing electors to
vote for President William McKinley
for re-election. (Applause.)
Hade Before the Republican National
. Convention.
Convention Hall, June 21. In seconding-
the nomination of President
McKinley Mr. Knight of California
said in part:
"We all know what the Democratic
party is; we all know what the Demo
cratic party was. We all know what
the Democratic party will be until the
crack of doom. (Applause and laugh
ter.) I believe that it has often been
said that our forefathers bullded better
than they knew. I say no; they knew
better when they had an opportunity
of building. (Applause.) They had the
history of the past. They had the op
pression and the journey that brought
them to the seashores. They knew the
mistakes of the governments of the
old world, and they tried as best they
knew to avert and avoid them in the
building of this new and great nation.
One thing was stamped on their hearts
and their minds freeaom to all and
equal rights before the law, and that
has? been one of the cardinal principles
of the Republican party. (Applause.)
"Washington was in favor of pro
tection, Jefferson was in favor of ex
pansion, and the Republican party as
sumed these great principles In 1S56, and
never has deserted those great cardinal
principles that have been productive
of so much good. (Applause.)
The Democratic party has always put
the arm of labor in a sling. (Laughter
and applause). The Democratic party
has blackened the eye of commerce.
(Continued laughter). The Democratic
party has crushed the foot of progress.
It has put Uncle Sam to bed every time
it has had anything to do with the gov
eminent (laughter and applause) and
besides that, it seeks alliances with the
vicious and the outcast of other lands.
who have no abiding place under the
shadow of their own flag. (Applause).
This is the indictment against it.
"It is going to have a Fourth of July
in Kansas City I wonder why the
Fourth of July was picked out. The
'Fourth of July.' Do you remember
" 'Our bugles sang truce when the night
cloud had lowered.

that man (pointing to a portrait of Mc
Kinley) slept with his heart on the flai
and no Democrat did that in those
days. (Tremendous cheers and a voice,
"Thats' right, that's right.") California
is in favor of expansion. Why? Because
when that wearied pathnnder(Fremont)
crossed the level plains, climbed the
mountains of rocks and viewed the
promised land the Democrats did not
count her as part of this national union.
All through the acquisition of Call
tornia they use the same argument on
the stump and In the United States sen
ate as is used at the present and we
feel in California the injustice of that
kind of argument and you Democrats, if
you want to hear anything about anti
expansion, get Corwin's speech of 1847
and read it and there is not an anti-
expansionist in the land that can make
one like it today. (Laughter and ap
plause). California comes here to sec
ond; California favors with enthusiasm
the nomination of William McKinley.
Today he stands as one beloved at
home, before all the nations of the earth
and as one of the greatest and best rulers
that ever graced the presidential chair of
the United States. (Applause.) November
will soon De nere and there will be no
doubt as to the results. The ballots are
now counted in the minds and hearts of
the American people and four more years
of respect to law, respect to the flag and
of hope, and faith In the perpetuity of
American institutions and of honor to the
name of William McKinley will follow
this nomination. (Applause.)
