Saratoga Springs. N. V.. Sept. 2S.— The platform as adopted by the Republican State Convention is as follows: The Republicans of the State of New York, in convention represented, re solve as follows: WARFARE AGAINST GRAFT.— We de clare rcjentless warfare upon official and legislative wrongdoing: in this state, J. Republican Legislature or dered an, immediate and searching in quiry im o all corrupt practices, and this inquiry is now going forward vig orously. "We pledge its continuance, ■with additional authority if required. until all such wrongdoing capable of exposure shall have been brought to light, to She end that the guilty shall be punished and the innocent relieved of unjust .suspicion. Dishonesty in public service is. next to treason, the most flagrant of crimes. In ridding our institutions of this can cer jrrovth we know no party distinc tion. Th" crimes which have been comnlitt<Ki have involved members of I>nth pai-ties. and the fact that some of the •wrongdoers have masqueraded under AM name of Republicans neither has gainod nor shall gain them immu nity from punishment by Republicans. Not only have they wronged the peo ple but they have proved themselves the worst, enemies of the party. The rook and grafter and unfaithful man in public service shall be put out and kept out. .NATIONAL ADMINISTRATION.— "W.» enthusiastically indorse the progres sive and statesmanlike leadership of William Howard Taft. and declare our pride in the achievements of his first • ■iphte^n months as President of the Vnlted states Each succeeding month Since his inauguration has confirmed th «• nation in its high estimate of his greatness of character, intellectual a Ullity. sturdy common sense, extraor dinary patience and perseverance, broad and statesmanlike comprehen sion of public questions and unfalter ing and unswerving adherence to duty. He .has strengthened our prestige with fnreten nations and treated with vigor and wisdom important international ;iroh!»T:is, notably our tariff relations •with Germany, France and Canada. Under Ma administration the prosecu tion of tltone implicated in the sugar and other customs frauds have been continued and convictions obtained; thertf have been impartial and ener getic enfomem^nt of the Sherman anti trust act: a substantial reduction of governmental expenses: the establish ment of h< tter business methods, which will rrsutl. in greater efficiency and real economy; remarkable progress In Ihe constriction of the Panama Canal, and the withdrawal from private entry of over a^venty-one million acres of the public domain, to preserve for pub lic benefit valuable coal and other min eral der«*?its, timber land and water power sSb-s. On his recommendation Congress hag provided for a commis sion to investigate and report on the regulation of the issuance of stock and bonds by Public Service corporations engaged .in interstate commerce. He has advocated ■ new system of appro priations for river and harbor improve ments, under which each item, after investigation by experts, shall be ap proved aid carried to completion as a separate measure. This recommenda tion v.<- heartily indorse. THE TAP.CFF.— The Payne tariff law re duced the average rate of all duties II per o«m. By increasing the duties on mm • i tries and articles not of ordinary xi.««-. leaking, however, no in crease co any common food product, it turned a national deficit into a sur plus. Under its first year of operation the value of imports free of duty was the jrroatJr-st in our history by $109. 4ami.imm». and the average rate of duty was less than under the Wilson law. Unlike the Democratic law. its great reductions of duty have not stopped industry nor deprived labor of any part of its hire. It gives free trade with the Philippine Islands and it establishes a customs court, its maximum and minimum rates give us for the first time equality of opportunity with other nations of our foreign trade. In providing, upon th; suggestion of President Taft. Sor a tariff board, it af fords the means of still more accurate ly determining the difference in cost of production at home and abroad. A Republican Congress is necessary to provide needed appropriations for this board, and to assure business and labor that changes in rates will be made < ■nly to equalize the difference in cost of production and not to reduce rates to the free trad.- or purely revenue basis favored by the Democratic party. To avoid disturbance of business we urge the adoption by the Congress of the joint rule of the two houses rec ommended by the President and lead ers la Congress, by which the two houses could consider a single schedule or a simple paragraph of the tariff without the necessity for amendment which would lead to a general revision. Advances in the cost of living are only the local reflection of a tendency that is worldwide and cannot be truthfully said to be due to the present tariff. THE CONGRESS.— The Congress has re sponded to recommendations of the President by enactUig m« asures of far reaching: importance to the people, In cluding valuable amendments to the interstate commerce law, a postal sav ings bank law, a law providing for the publicity of campaign expenses, the creation of a bureau of mines with a view to the better protection of mine workers, laws extending the regulation of safety appliances and the law pro viding a method by which the surface of coal lands and other mineral lands is made available for agricultural use, while conserving the minerals under the surface for the public benefit. The right of the President to withdraw public lands for conservation purposes has bean set at rest by legislation, and the completion of irrigation projects is assured by !(.• authorization of $-0, 000/X'O of bonds. THE COURTS.— The teal of civilization ip an orderly and efficient government, one ,f the essentials of •rtllch is a judiciary of upright, able, industrious, cooraeeous men, promptly administer ing th* lav to rich »nd poor aJUc* NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBIXE, >-'.TI I?sl)AY. SEPTEMBER 2», 1910. without fear or favor, and protecting the individual in his rights and lib erties against the injustice of the mob as well as against the greed of the powerful. We count it fortunate that the President has secured as a mem ber of our highest tribunal a man with the great intellectual power and the spelndld legal attainments of Charles S. Hughes. GOVERNOR HUGHBS'B ADMIN ISTRATION.—We congratulate the people on the notable progress of the state under the four > ears' administra tion of Governor Hughes, which has been conspicuous for the highest standards of efficiency. He has ap pealed to the conscience and intelli gent of the people and championed legislation demanded by the moral oenae of the community. Through his wise recommendation and the efficient action of a Republican legislature all public service corporatlona ;n; n the State of New York hnve been BUOCe— fully taken out of politics by being placed under commisfclona of high character; laws have been passed ex tending the corrupt practice? ad to prfanariea, for a more scientific method of making up the state budget, pro viding for the licensing and r»-e<ilH tion of motor -^ chicle traffic, strength ening the pKOytalong asrainst racetrack gambling, for reforesting the forest re serve and for better protection against forest fires, and making the insurance ;<nd banking; laws more effective. The increase in the cost of administering the Mate reflects the higher standard of care of the infirm, the insane and the dependent; the extension and in creased efficiency of the public school ■ffcteiu. the instalments for th« barge canal sinking fund, and the systematic building and mintennnce of wtate high ways. LABOR ANP CAPITAL. -The record of Republican legislation during the last eighteen years, conserving the public interest by improving the of labor. Is unequalled in our history, one hundred and sixty such enact ments were written in our statutes, covering the whole range of labor's in terests in the workshops, factories, mines and quarries, and upon all forms of public -work. We are proud to re cord thnt New York has been the first American State to provide by law for the compulsory compensation "f em ployes sustaining personal injury while following extra hazardous occupations, and also to legalize voluntary agree ments as to compensation between em ployers and employes in all other occu pationp. We commend the law of last winter which requires that all acci dents In building, construction and engineering work be reported to the <ommlssioner of Labor. We com mend the creation in the department of the Bureau of Industries and Immi gration. We believe that capital honestly ployed should b» permitted to feel that sense of security essential to stimulate its legitimate investment. and thus safeguard the prosperity which has been so well established under Republican administration. AGRICULTURE.— We believe that the encouragement of agriculture and the betterment of country life are vital to the future of the state. 'Jreat areas of productive lands now idle should be brought under cultivation. Knowledge of modern farming methods should be widely disseminated throughout the State. Under Republican legislatures large sums have been appropriated for the extension of fa« ilities for agri cultural education, for preventing the spread of diseases of animals nnd for the eradication of pests. We pledge ourselves to the continuance of this vital work and \<< the support of all practical methods for Increasing the number of farm owners nnd further ing their Interests We believe that an important aid t.« the agricultural mtf-rests of the state is tin- New York State, fair, and In n continuance of the policy which is making this ex hibition a means of education for the farmer and productive of the greatest good. CONSERVATION. -In the Interests of the growth and prosperity of the state we favor the conservation, develop ment .md utilization of all our natural resources, under conditions, however, which will protect and safeguard the rights of the state. We favor such regulation of o;ir rlvera by storage rvofra, or otherwise, as will mul;i jily and equalise the hydraulic power. Vive relief to thousand* of wage earn ers who are n«>\v regularly deprived of work during the- summer months, pre vent needless loss of profits to manu facturing and mercantile COmmuiMtiea, stimulate the upbuilding of our indus vCsuß^B ffet. * Bk^^k iCTiflr i tS t^< GBfta B^B^ '"^if^ I !^^ CANDIDATES SEI.KtTKD in TIIK SAHAInCA CONVENTION". S. S. KOEKIG, Secretary of State EDWARD R. O'MALLEY, Attorney Oeaerat tries, eliminate the annual destruction of property by floods and improve un sanitary conditions, and we pledge our selves to the prompt adoption of such constitutional and statutory enact ments as will accomplish these ends. CANALS.— The businesslike methods which have characterized the work at tending the construction of the barge c anal under Republican administration during the hist two years should be highly gratifying to all th" people of the state, and they arc to bo congrat ulated on the fact that the efficiency shown by the authorities to whom this most important work has been Intrust ed already insures its completion within the original estimates. The im portance of bringing this work to a completed state at an early date can not be overestimated, and we pledge the party to this accomplishment. URADE CROSSINGS.— The state is al ready committed to the policy of con tributing its share toward the abolition of grade crossings, a matter which the rapid growth of both our urban nnd rural population is daily making of more importance, and we favor a rea sonable liberality of appropriation by the state for this purpose. CONDEMNATION PRACTICE. — We urge upon the Legislature the re-en actment of the proposed amendment to the constitution which was adopted by that body at its last session, and which provid' 'hat the value of private prop erty taken for public use shall be as certained by the Supreme Court, with or without a Jury, in addition to the other methods now provided by law, to the end that the gross extrava gances that now prevail in condemna tion proceedings in some sections of the state may no longer be imposed upon the taxpayers. TUBERCULOSIS- We favor conserva tive state action in the prevention and cure of tuberculosis. PREVENTING PRIMARY FRAUDS.— We believe that the same safeguards should surround primary elections as have been shown to be effective in preventing repeating and frauds at general elections. We therefore favor extending the signature lav/ as now applied to general elections to pri mary elections. ECONOMY.— We demand the most rigid economy in every department of the state, always with due heed to the growing needs of a great common wealth. DIRECT NOMINATIONS.— To Governor Hughes is due the credit of arousing the, interest of the people and con vincing them of the need of directly electing their party officers and di rectly nominating their party candi dates. We promise legislation which will enact these principles into law. We appeal witti confidence to the in telligence and patriotism of the people for the indorsement of this platform and the election of the candidates of this convention HADLEY IMMENSELY GRATIFIED Pleased at Colonel Roosevelt's Victory Over Mr. Sherman.

In one of the cottages Is the headquarters of a metro politan dally and at the head of the staff is the manager. Thereby hangs this tale. Said head having arrived somewhat grimy from his railroad ride, had the temerity to use the only bath towel. The following morning there were loud cries from lesser mem bets of the staff for towels, and after great tribulation the negro divinity was found, but additional towels were denied. ■"I done rut a bath towel in dls yar room," was the only reply "aunty" con sented to make to numerous indignant protests. "But, aunty," said one of the scribes, "there are five men in this suite, and one bath towel is not enough." "They done tole me one towel was abun dantly sufficient foh dez political gentle men?," replied "aunty," with obvious con tempt, and then very haughtily, as If to clinch it. "I done put a bath towel in dez yeah rooms," a. id she disappeared before the correspondents could explain that they belonged to a higher stratum of society and were newspaper men. not "newspaper gentlemens." During the day "aunty" was evidently not idle. When the scribe? had gathered for their evening's work she appeared sud denly at the door. Slowly advancing she pointed a condemning linger at the guilty manager. "Dasa the gentleman what used 'iat towel." she announced in a tone appropri ate to the disclosure of a murderer. ' 11. s de one what done used dat towel," and easting al the cowering culprit a look of withering scorn she sailed majestically from the room. Somehow the story leaked out. and ever since that the paid manager has been en deavoring to explain that it was not "with malice prepense" that he used the only bath towel.

Vanderbilt Cup Day Tomorrow In the Wanamaker Motor Shop First Big Event of the Year Finds Us Ready with Splendid Equipment. Tomorrow night comes the long wait for the start of the Vanderbilt Clip race, the great Motoring Event of the early Autumn, in all America. In view of the event, we have prepared a special Van derbilt Cup Day in- the New Motor Shop of the Wanamaker Men's Store. Everything wanted for wear, for warmth, for comfort and for chic, for Mr. Motorist, his wife, his family, and his chauffeur, has been gathered from every part of the world where motor things are well made, and will be placed on view in this shop tomorrow. We are making this event the occasion for calling to your attention one of the most important collections of im ported motor wearables, fittings and accessories which has ever been opened in any New York Store. We feel that we need only make known to the motoring public of this city that such splendid European goods for motor use are to be obtained at prices which do not approach the prohibitive, for this shop to become the greatest motor accessory centre in New York. Our wise and careful purchasing in England, France and Germany has proved to us that the best and most exclu sive motor products which these countries have to offer may j he brought to the door of the great and growing motor-us public of America at REASONABLE PRICES. . We arc ready to prove as much to you. We believe that all who take advantage of this Vander- I hilt Cup Event will be convinced that we have proven still i more.
