TWO GREANSSUES
Vice President Sherman Discusses
the Campaign.
WOULD SAVE CONSTITUTION
Against Attack on Conrts or Increasing
Power of Mob.
CHAMPIONS PRESENT TARIFF
Contrasts Present Great Prosperity
With Conditions Reigning in
Democratic Administration.
ITTICA, October 24.?Vice President
James S. Sherman last night contributed
a prepared address to the republican campaign,
in which he dwelt upon two iamies
before the country?constitutional liberty
and industrial opportunity.
This speech by Mr. Sherman, which Is
addressed to the American people, is
practically his only contribution to the
pre-election work of his party, the Vice
President s health having: made it impossible
for him to take an active part in
the campaign. The address follows:
"It lias been a matter of keen regret
that I have not been able, to take an
active part in the present campaign. The
restraint has been the more irksome, as
I have realized that we are passing
through a national crisis such as we
have not experienced since the civil war.
It Ls hard, indeed, to be only an onlooker
nt such a time, and I am almost Impelled
to disobey the doctor's orders and
rush into the conflict; but I must not, for
I have private and public, obligations for
which I must conserve my health. Still,
I cannot refrain from sending out a few
sentences for which I ask the consideration
of all my fellow-citizens.
Two Great Issues.
"There are two great issues in this campaign
which stand out alone; one our
constitutional liberty, the other industrial
opportunity. I realize fully the spirit of
unrest that has been aroused during the
last few years by muckrakers and demagogues.
I appreciate most thoroughly
and join most heartily in the desire for
so-called social betterment. I am in full
sympathy with every well directed effort
to elevate still further our already high
standard of living, to eradicate injustice
and Iniquitous conditions in our social
and industrial life, but I ask in all seriousness
if any evils that have crept into
our national affairs can be eliminated
by breaking down our Constitution, by attacking
the courts or Increasing the power
of the mob? Happily, I believe this
threatening danger which seemed to menace
our institutions "has been averted.
"But a great menace remains. We
cannot improve the present social and
civic situation by tearing down existing
industrial conditions and abandoning opportunity
for individual and national
progress.
"The man who has no money to bank
is not interested in banking laws; the
man who is without means to travel is
not interested in railway rates; the man
who lacks a surplus is not interested In
judicial procedure or legislative enactment.
Democratic Principles.
"The democratic platform of 1912, as
did the democratic platform of 1892, declares
unconstitutional the imposition and
collecting of tariff duties except for revenue.
The democratic candidate. Dr.
Wilson, has declared that he would repeal
all protective duties. The present
democratic House of Representatives has
put itself on record in favor of the lowest
possible import rates. So we may
assume that in the event of denrocrat'c
success we shall have a tariff for revenue
only.
"True, the democratic platform and the
democratic candidate declare that the
destruction in not all to come at once;
that it is to be brought about gradually
and no American industry is to be injured.
But James K. Polk, in 1&44, and
Grover Cleveland, in 1S92, said the same
thing, while their election was followed
by free trade and disaster.
"We are today enjoying a larger degree
of prosperity, a greater volume of
employment ana nigner lnuiviuuai anu
collective wages than ever before in our
history. No man can be idle who can or
will work. The newspapers in their wont
columns are printing ten-fold more helpwanted
than situations-wmted advertisements.
Our farmers have harvested the
most valuable crop ever known; our railroads'
facilities are taxed to their utmost
to handle it. Our merchants were never
so busy and our banks ore bursting with
surplus funds. We are buying more
abroad than ever before and we are selling
largely more than we buy, Insuring a
favorable balance of trade to meet our
foreign obligations. Every year under
the present tariff law we have had a substantial
treasury surplus. We are tontented,
prosperous and ambitious.
Looking for Entrance.
"Eagerly Indeed are the manufacturers
and producers of Europe and elsewhere
looking for an entrance into and then
possession of our markets. Greedily Indeed
are they envying fifteen billions of
bank deposits, over four billion dollars
of which are the savings of the working
classes. A tariff sufficiently low- for
sufficient revenue without protection to
our labor and industries means an Importation
of billions of dollars' worth of
foreign goods to take tiie place of our
home products, with resultant idleness,
or a reduction of American wages to the
foreign level.
"This may not he a new idea, but it is
truth. It is history, it is experience.
Every industrial nation but one la
strengthening Its protective tariffs and
Great Britain will return to protection
in the not distant future. Shall we then
abandon our policy? Shall we open our
ports and give up our markets to the
eager, greedy artisans abroad, who would
Instantly flood us with their wares?
"I'nder the Dingley and. Payne tariffs
we have had no Dallas nightcaps on our
smokeless factory chimneys; we have
had no free soupliouses. There have
been no t'oxeys and Kellys, with their
idle .armies, demanding a chance to work.
We have had no strikes against wage
reductions. Every labor movement lias
been for increased pay, and the pay rolls
today are greater by billions than during
the days of democracy and free trade
In 18b4-t?. Only one Industry flourished
In those direful years?the pawnshop?
while today we reckon our trarwaetions
by billions and hundreds of millions.
Shall We Open Doors P
"Shall we again destroy confidence?
Shall we open our ports and present our
splendid home markets to Europe and
China and Japan?
"We must remember that Mr. Taft was
renominated because he has given the
people a safe and successful administration.
T'nder his executive guidance we <
have made long strides in progressive at- i
tainment. We have made many advances >
in the way of public welfare, and es- ]
pecially have the interests of the working
people been most materially furthered. '
"Mr. Taft was elected in 1908 because '
it was believed that his administration j
would check the commercial panic of t
1907. which came near resulting in a ,
thorough Industrial panic. This work has
been accomplished under his benignant I
guidance, so that now, if he is re-elected,
there is every reason to believe that with 1
business and industrial success assured,' >
not only will our people be secure in the :
possession of what they have, but that
the work of social betterment will con- -
tlnue. There can be no uplift in a downpour.
"To re-elect President Taft would be to
follow experience and not experiment.
The government would continue to be
safe In his hands. The nation's affairs
would be efficiency and economically
managed. Both capital and labor would
be unafraid and safeguarded against an
inequitable foreign tariff and unjust conditions
at home."

LAUGH ON FRANCIS TAYLOR.
Inadvertently Sports Bull Moose
Emblem at the Treasury.
Francis Taylor, private secretary to #
Secretary MacVeagh, hurried out of Chicago
a few days ago to return to Wash- \
ington. He forgot his overcoat and wired Jt
hack to his brother to send the garment
to him. It arrived In a box yesterday.
Taylor told Dick Green, the veteran J
Treasury messenger, to hang the coat J,
in a locker. *2
in the evening Mr. Taylor put it on
and started out of the building. Everybody
he passed grinned. He didn't know ?I
why. He began to investigate and found
a big buli moose emblem In the top but- I 3
ton hole of the coat. His brother had | J,
placed the emblem there a a a Joke, and A
the joke was on the private secretary.
