Illurtrations. ',lnet me give you two rtriking Illus trations of how Mr. Taft's theory of goverlnmelnt of the people by a 'repre sentative part' of the people actually turns out to be in practice. In Ohio, a primary was held for the district delegates; but the Taft managers who had control of the state central corn mittee, refused our request that there shouli also be a primary vote for the dIelegIatei at large. At the primary I heat Mr. Tuft by 47,000 in a vote which was albout t0 per cent of that polled at the last election for governor. It was an overwhelming repudiation of Mr. Taft Iby the plain people; by the rank and file of the republican party of Ohio. But this did not affect the state convention. Mr. Taft was not •above sending an appeal to his lead ers in the state convention begging them to give him the vote anyhow In spi-te of the way in which he had been repudliated at the polls. In that con vention the county in which the city of I'leveland stands had some t60 del egates. That county had gone against Mr. Taft about 3 to 1: he had even runl behind Mr. La Follette. Ilis re pudlliation by tile people of the county had 'been so complete' that it is to Ine Iiterall,/ Incomprehensible how any hean with'any bretentions to; honorable 'feel ing could fall' to accept the verdlict. But Mr. 'raft's lieutenants, headed by i4enator Iturton, undertook to steal from the peIople their right to deliver what verdict they chose. Their task was no more reputable than any form of burglary, and was far more damnlng ing to the comlnunity than burglary. They were successful. "They succeeded In getting from the city of IClevcladtl, which had repudli atedu Mr. Taft 3 to 1 at the polls, 'a dellcttion of nolitlelans which was 10 to I in his favor. This delegation turned the stale At the state ceo'nven lion and earned Mr. TtLft's effusive gra;titde by stealing for llm from the people of Ohio the six delegates at large. lie was not entitled to these de'legates. The peolle of Ohio who were' defrauded in hlis inter -e wo're entitled teo them. The people were cheated out of their rights because they were misrepresented by the conven tion. Mr. Taft asked the Ohio state convention to misrepresent the people ar.d it did misrepresent the p., ejle. lMr. Taft need never again exp'ain what Ie means by the government of the pno pil by 'a representative part of the people.' He has s'hown In actual prac tico that he means government of the people, by the people by the politihlinns who shall represent them in the seil ish interest of somlneone else. The National Committee. "My second example is the national commnittee itself. The recent action of the national committee illustrates well what has happened in our country in the twlsting of nominal representative governmennt away from its original pur Ipose until it becomes thorougmly un representative. All this party machin ery was originally designed liml)ly in order to mnake the will of the party offectivn. It had no other plurpose then. It can have no other legitimate purpose now. Until within a very few years no mnan would have been brazen enough openly to announce that this was not its purpose. "It his been reserved for Mr. Taft and his friends in this crisis and his frieonds openly to not on such assumlp tion. Thd' other day 37 of Mr. Taft's adherents on the national 'clnomittee stole from the people of Ialilfornia their rigot to give the votd0 of ('aU fortila to the mIen of their chole. .These 37 poltliueins, none of whom lived In California, assumed to override the will of a qgarter of million 'of CIalifornia voterW.'Wh, had recorded their, will at the primary. The 37 men who db not livolin Caltfornia have given senats to two Taft 'aoen, whom the quarter of it million California voters had reufused to seat. These two Taft delegates have no more right to sit in the republican convention than they have to sit in the democratlo convention. They were defeated In California by about 77,000 majority; p majority greater than MIr. Pelaft's entire vote. Under the qot of the legtltsturo all the delegates ran on one ticket, the TAft and Roosevelt del. egatesaalike binding thbtnselves to abide hy the result.

Tho action of the committee In seating the Talftderl ea, from ,Washinston was even whoae; and in the other states I haver aited it was at least Si ba4d, This isl 1Mr. Taft's theory osl g.yernnment oft the people by a 'representatlve part' of the people when It Is teduced to prae tice. 'From the practice of this t;eory, under the prrtenose of heednL. the forms of decency, it is but one step farther to east aside all pretense whatever; and Mr. Taft's lieutenants have taken this step again and again: from swindling the people by sharp polltipal tricks they have gone to the point of delib erate theft. Mr. Tart in encouraging w:.at was done in the Ohio state con vention showed his anxious desire to defeat the will of the people by sharp trickery which kept just within the law. . Deliberate Robbery. "llut in electing and seating thei del egates whom the Taft national com mittee have put on the temporary roll of the convention from California, Washington, Arlsona, Kentucky, Indl ana, Texas and other states a much longer stop towards dishonesty has been taken. These delegates repre.sent deliberate theft, deliberate rblbery. The action of Mr. Taft's supportel' in these cdaes raises a question even more vital than those that have legitimately been raised In this campaign. Before dis cussing questions dealing with the right of the people to rule and secure social and industrial justice, it Is necessary to settle once for all that when the de cision hap been made by the people it shlall not. be reversed by force and fraud. We have a right to ask every honest man among our opponents, whatever may i)e his views as to the princidles we advocate, heartily to sup port tus in this fight for the elemrentary. the fundamental honesties of polities. The first and greatest Issue before us is the Issue of theft. fEvery honest' cilllxe should join with us in the fight for honesty against theft and corrup tioln. 'Uitter Opponents. "It is not to be wollllmredc at thait 'our oplponents have been very hitter; for the lineup in this crisis is one that cuts dceep to the foundations of governmlent. Our demcnracy is nIw put to a vital tent; for the conflict is between hulman rights on the one side anld on the other special privilege asserted as a property right. The parting of the ways has come. The republican party must def Initely stand on one side or the other. It must stand, by deeds and not nmeely by empty phrases, for the rights of hu inanity, or else it must stand for spe cial privilege. "O)ur opponents are fond of calling themselves regular republiceans. In re ality they.have no title to membership ih any party that is true to the prin ciples of Abraham Lincoln. They are fighting for the cause of special priv lilege and their chief strength is drawn from the beneficiaries of ntrenchelld ec. onomic and social Injustitce. J do not In the least mean that they are all of themll or even ta 'nmajority of them in fluencerd bIy Imprlper lmotlives any more than I oluld say the same thing of,the meon in the north who during the civil war were favorable to slavery and 'on ile ino the Union. But most of the mntster spirits among them have a strong selfish interest In resisting the camnpalgn against indllatrial wrong. Tihe real masters among our opponents are often by no means the men nom Inally In the forefront. These real mas tcrs of the reactionary forces have a trenendous personal interest In per. petlating the rule of the boss in pol Ities with as its necessary accompanl tnlnt the alldfguardlng of privilege and the enlarging of the sphere of special interest. They are the men who stand back of the ordinary political leaders who are against us. They are the men who directly or indirectly control 'tihe majority of the great daily newspapers that are against us. nhilnd .tlm, tomnes the host of' honest cit(i~.ih ietoeuse 'the channels of thal t t 1 tol are choked, inllinmteris. d our position and believe tbha' .: Poln us they arc opposing dist..

Bu.t associated with them are many men whose sel. fish interest In privileges is far less obvious. I genufinely regret that we have had with us sn small a percent age of the men for whom life hap leen easy who belong to or are Intimately associated with the leisured and moneyed class; so small a proportion of the class which furnishes the bulk of the membership in the larger so cial business and professional clqbs; and which supplles the majority of the heads of our great educatlonal In stitutions and of the men generally who take the lead In upholding the cause of virtue when ohly the minor moralities and the elegancies of life are at issue. My concern' and regret over their action are not primarily for our sakes, for the sake of the people. My concern and regret are primLarily for these men themselves. They could do us good by joining with us, for it is earnestly to he wished that this mnioernent for social Justice shall number amng Its tlenders at least a goodly prnoprtion of men whose lead ership Is obviously disinterested, who will themselves receive no materlal benefit from the changes which as a matter of justice they advoceate. Yet the good to the people would be small compared to the good which these men would do to their own class by calting In their lot with us as we hbattle for the rights of humanity. as we battle for social and industrial justice, as we champion the cause of those who most need champinns apd for wbom p.am ploqs have beenr ton few. I have been pussled at the attitude of the men In question. They are often men who In the pakt have been very gevesl in there dbndemnation of corrsttleQ in their condemnation of bossisln, aad In ralling at Injustice and dbmalding higher Ideals of publio service 4and private life. Yet when the supFeme test crmes, they profe falso to all their profreslons of the past.
