Kacvrd of Achlwemant W« in done the administration or tfiflirtrow Wilson. It speaks for it flflK. it Is the best exposition of SOWd Democratic policy at home cai abroad. Wa challenge comparison of our IlflOOrd. our keeping of pledges and aar constructive legislation, with those of any party of any time. The reforms which were roost ob- Vtocsly needed to clear sway spe cial privilege, prevent unfair dis crimination, and release the ener gies of men of all ranks and advan tages, have been effected by recent legislation. Ws must now remove, aa far as possible, every remaining Sfament of unrest and uncertainty *ron> the path of the business men Os America, and secure for them a Continued period of quiet, assured and confident prosperity. Tariff We reaffirm our belief in the doc trine of a tarifT for the purpose of providing sufficient revenue for the Operation of the government, eco nomically administered, and unre servedly endorse the Underwood !tarlff law as truly exemplifying that dksntrtne. We recognize that tariff .rates are necessarily subject to alwnge to meet changing conditions m the world's production and trade. The events of the last two yesrs have brought about many momen loaa changes. In some respects -their effects are yet conjectural and matt to be disclosed, particularly In regard to our foreign trade. Two ■yesrs of a war which has directly jmsoived most of the chief Industrial fWwu of the world and which has Mtrectly affected the life and In thmtry of an nations, are bringing abovt economic changes more varied gad Car reaching than the world has •per before experienced. ll order to ascertain just what ffim changes may be, the Demo eratte congress is providing for a hfmportlssn tariff commission to ■aim Impartial and thorough study Hi t every economic fact that may Mmmr light either upon our past or apM our future fecal policy with baptrd to the imposition of taxes on Imparts or With regard to the chang gH eai changing conditions under our trade is carried on. We •afdgjfty endorse this timely propo ml add declare ourselves In sympa thy with the principle and purpose gs shaping legislation within that Paid ti accordance with clearly es tablished facts rather than in accord imoe with the demands of selfish ] Interests or upon Information pro vided largely. If not exclusively, by them. Americanism Tfce pert that the United States i wfll piny in the new day of inter- , national relationships which Is now gpen as will depend upon our prepa mtlsn and our character. The Dem- Nffstie patty, therefore, recognizes ■U assertion and triumphant dero liUtration of the indivisibility and maersnt strength of the nation ts tne Mptesns issue of this day In which Ufo Whole world faces the crisis of IPMlflaid change, it summons all ffien, of whatever origin or creed. Who would count themselves Ameri cans to join in making clear to all the world the unity and consequent power of America. This is an issue at patriotism. To taint it with par tfcnashlp would be to defile It. In Uds day of test. America mast show j Itself, not s notion of partisans, but a nation of patriots. There Is gath- Ored here In America the best of the blood, the Industry and the gen- Ipt Os the whole world, the elements Os n great race and a magnificent ■misty to be melted Into a mighty and splendid nation. Whoever, ac tants# by the purpose to promote mm Interest or a foreign power, in #Hwpard of our own country's wei hrs nr to Injure this government in fits foreign relations, or cripple or dsatroy its industries at home, and jafruf r by arousing prejudices of a racial, religious or other nature, ere jsea discord and strife among our •••pis so as to obstruct the whole rarae process of unification, is faith- Iffis to the trust which the privileges Wf dtlsenship repose in him and dis lspal to his country. Ws, therefore, haademn as subversive of this na- Pn's unity and integrity, and as distinctive of Its welfare, the activi ties and designs of every group or aryatrtsatlon, political or otherwise, that has for its object the advance pMßt af the interest of a foreign ypwsr, whether such object Is pro 'ranted by intimidating the govern- Bment, a political party, or represen rtattvee of the people, or which Is jdalsirtsted end tend* to divide our people into antagonistic groups and thus to destroy that complete agree jrdffiflnt and solidarity of the people ,aad that unity of sentiment and na -lonal purpose so essential to the per pittitty of the nation and its free [institutions We condemn all *lll -and combinations of indlvid- Walsh; this country, of whatever na tasnallty or descent, who agree and rgaasplre together for the purpose of I'gafharraiuitug or weakening of our ■ffipunment or of Improperly Influ- NMCteK er coercing our public repre gaatatlve in dealing or negotiating ttrlth any foreign power.

We condemn ana po |fiMS perty which. In view of the HhflMty ad such conspirators, sur MMm Ms Integrity or modifier its Preparedness Along with the proof of our char acter ass nation, must go the proof of our power to play the part that legitimately belongs to us. The peo ple of the United States love peace. They respect the rights and covet the friendship of all other nations. They desire neither any additional territory nor any advantage which cannot be peacefully gained by their skill, their Industry or their enter prise: but they Insist upon having absolute freedom of national life and policy, and feel that they owe It to themselves and to the role of spirit ed Independence which It Is their sole ambition to play, but they should render themselves secure against the hazard of Interference from any quarter and should be ab*e to protect their rights upon the or in any part of the world "e. therefore, favor the maintenance of an army fully adequate to the re quirements of order, of safety and of the protection of the nation e rights; the fullest development of modern methods of seacoast defense and the maintenance of an adequate reserve of citizens trained to arms prepared to safeguard the peo ple and territory of the United States against any danger of hostile action which may unexpectedly arise; and a fixed policy for the continuous development of a navy worthy to support the great naval traditions of this nation and fully eqoal to the International tasks which the United States hopes and expects to take a part In performing. The plans and enactments of the present congress afford substantial proof of our purpose In this exigent matter. la«er*att©aal Relatlaas The Democratic adm'utstratlon has, throughout the present war. scrupu lously and successfully held to the old paths of neutrality and to tne peaceful pursuit of the legitimate ob jects of our national life, which statesmen of all parties and creeds have prescribed for themselves in America since the beglnninng of our history. But the circumstances of the last two years have revealed ne cessities of International action which no former generation can have foreseen. We hold that tt is the duty of the United States to use Its power, not only to make itself safe at home.'but also to make secure Its Just interests throughout the world, and. both for this end and In the In terest of humanity, to assist the world In securing settled peace and iustlce. We believe that every people ias the right to choose the sovereign ty under which It shall live; that the ■mall states of the world have a right to enjoy from other nations the same respect for their sovereign ty and for their territorial Integrity that great and powerful nattons ex pect and Insist upon; and that the world has a right to be free from every disturbance of Its peace that has its origin in aggression or disre gard of the rights of peoples and na tions; and we believe that the time l has come when it is the duty of the I United .States to join with the other I nations of the world in any feasible 'association that will effectively serve .'those principles to maintain inviolate ! the i'nniplete security of the highway of the seas for the common and un ! hindered use of all nations. | The present administration has I consistently sought to act upon and reul'se In its conduct of the foreign affairs of the nation the principle that should be the object of any as sociation and the nations formed to secure the peace of the world and the maintenance of national and In dividual rlghta. It has followed the highest American traditions. It has preferred respect for the fundamen tal rights of smaller states even to property Interests and has secured the friendship of the people of these states for the United States by re fusing to make s more material In terest an excuse for the assertion of our superior power agstnst the dig nity of their sovereign independence. It has regarded the lives of tt| cltl xens and the claims of humanity as of greater moment than material rlghta. and peace as the best basis for the Just settlement of commercial claims. It has made the honor and Ideals of the United States its stand ard alike In negotiation and action. Pas-AMrrlesa Concord We commend the action of the Democratic administration In hold ing the Pan-American financial con ference at Washington In May, 1915. and organizing the International High commission, which represent ed the United State* In the recent meeting of representative* of the Lntln-AmerlcHn republics at Buenoe Aires In April. 1915, which have so freatly promoted the friendly reg ions between the people of the western hemisphere. Mexleo. The Monroe doctrine le re-asserted as a principle of Democratic faith. That doctrine guarantees Independent republics of the two Americas against aggression from another continent. It Implies, as well, the most scrupu lous regard upon our part for the sovereignty or each of them We court their good will. We aeek not to despoil them. The want of a stable, responsible government In Mexico, capable of re pressing and punishing marauders and bandit bands, who have not only taken the lives and seized and de stroyed the property of American citizens in that country, hut have Insolently Invaded our soli, made war upon and murdered our people thereon, has rendered it necessary to temporarily occupy by our armed forces a portion of the territory of that friendly atate.

Immediate provision should ba made for the development of the car rying trade of the United States. Our foreign commerce has In the past been subject to many unnecessary ' and vexatious obstacles In the way of legislation of Republican con gresses.

Much has been accomplished in this field under the present admin istration— far more than any previous administration. In the federal re serve act of the last congress and the rural credits act of the present congress the machinery has been created which will make credit avail able to the farmer constantly and readily, and he has at last been put upon a footing of equality with ths merchant and the manufacturer in securing the capital necessary to car ry on hta enterprises Grades and standards necessary to the intelligent and successful conduct of the business of agriculture have also been established or are in the course of being established hv law The long needed cotton future* act. passed by the sixty-third congress, has now been In successful operation for nearly two years.

Stratton work which la so rapidly substituting scientific for empirii »1 farming But it Is also necessary that rural activities should be bet tar directed through cooperation organisation, that unfair methods of competition should be eliminated and the conditions requisite for the Just, orderly and economical marketing of farm products created.

We. therefore, favor national aid In the construction of post road* and roads for military purposes. (iaverwreeaf Kmpi«ymeat We hold that the life, health ar.d strength of the men, women and children of the nation are its great est asset, and that in the . onserva tlon of these the federal government, wherever it ai ts as the employer of labor, should both on Its own account and as an example, put Into eff-ct the following principles of Just employ ment: I—A living wage for all employe* * —A working day not to exceed eight hours, with one day of rest in seven 3—The adoption of safety appli ances and the establishment of thor oughly sanitary conditions of labor.

From a few miles north of Tamo pol to Rrodv, the Austrians have held their ground steadily, due. sacs Petrograd, to the fact that the greatest violence of the Russian drive has been developed north and south of this sector. The drive has already had the ef fect of lessening in marked degree the Austrian pressure against the Italians on the Trentlno front. King Victor Emmanuel, of Italy, has con gratulated the czar on the success of the offensive. JJV VS IT ED PRESS, VIENNA.

S. FORCES IN MEXICO PREPARE FOR ATTACK trotlsard from Pis* Our.) miles. Trenches were manned and machine guns mounted WASHINGTON, June 17.—Mexi cans will attack American troops if anv more of the latter croas the border, or "if there is any attempt to move any troops." according to a message Gen. Trevino Is said to have telegraphed to Gen. Pershing. Gen. Bell reported to the war de partment today through Gen. Funs ton. Officials admittedly were anxious to learn whether Gen. Trevino actu ally was acting under orders from Carranza In sending the note, as he stated to Pershing. They hoped it would be showed Trevino exceeded his instructions, either intentionally or otherwise. In any event, some officials be lieved the communication to Persh ing could not be overlooked, coming as it does on the heels of the last Carranza note, which by some, was called "too abrupt.” The Mexican embassy branded the publishing of the text of the Trevino messagee—if Trevino actu ally did send one—as a "fake." It was said the embassy has not been informed that any message was sent, but that such an action by Trevino was “possible." However, It was officially stated that "the undiplomatic language, the appar ent studied discourtesy and the failure of Gen. Trevino as reported by the alleged translation to open his note with the formal "I am In structed by the first chief,” all were declared by the embassy as unmis takable indications that printed ver sions are "a very free translation, to say the least.” •'The Mexican people axe tired of the tactics employed by the Americans” was one phrase cited. "A man of Trevino’s education and Announcement Grading of Ford Highway and work on double- iij track Electric Street Railway between Woodward and | Michigan Avenues is now under way.

"Gen. Hell telephoned that Oen. Trevino hud telegraphed Gen. Persh ing that If any more troops crossed the border they will be attacked, oi If any attempt to move any more troops Is made theee will be at tacked," said Funston's telegram. Acting Secretary of War Scott, In announcing the message, empha sized the fact that the word had not come from Pershing himself. It was taken, however, as official con firmation of Trevino’s previously re ported action Inasmuch as Hell made his statement flatly and did not qualify It with any suggestion that the Trevino message was mere ly rumored.
