the naked thefts of the national com
',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.

under the prrtenose of heednL. the forms

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
'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

Tihe real masters among our opponents
