What the Democrats Have to Offer. Washing-ton, Sept. 11. Presidem Roosevelt's letter of acceptance of his ) nomination by the republican national ! convention was given to the public to- & I uight. The letter embraeing'about 12,- 000 words goes into a complete discus- i sion of all the issues which have. been raised by the platforms of both politi cal parties and by the speeches of ac ceptance. The l.'tttr is in part as fol lows: Oyster Bay. X. Y., Sept. 12. Hon. J. G. Cannon, chairman of the luKilieutiou committee. My dear sir: I accept the nomination for the presidency tendered me by the republican national conven tion, and cordially approve the plat form adopted by it In writing this letter there are certain points upon which I desire to lay especial tress. It is diilicult to find out from the ut terances of our opponents what are the real issues upon which they propose to wage this campaign. It is not un fair to say it'aat, having abandoned most of the principles upon which they have insisted during the last eight years, they now seem at a loss, both jis to what it is that they really be lieve, and as to how firmly tey shall assert 'their belief in anything. In fact. It is doubtful if they venture resolutely to press a single issue: as foon as they raise one they snrmk from it and seek : in accordance wi.h our treaty rights to explain it away. Such an attitude j and obligations there would have en, is the probably inevitable result of the sed endless guerrilla warfare and pos- cirort 'to improvise convictions; Kir when thus improvised, i: is natural that they should be held in a tentative manner. A PARTY OF CONVICTIONS. The party now in control of the gov ernment is troubled by no such diffi- culties. We do not have to guess, at i our own convictions, ar.d then -correct the guess if it seems unpopular. -TTtc principles which we profess are those in which we believe with heart and soul and strength. Men may differ from us; but they cannot accuse us of shif tiness or insincerity. The policies w.i have pursued are those which we earn estly hold as essential to the national welfare and repute. Our actions speak even louder than our words for the faith that is in us. ,We base our ap peal upon what we have done and ar doing, upon our record of administra tion and legislation during the last seven years, in which we have had complete control of the government. We intend in the future to carry on the government in the same way that we have carried it on in the past. A party whose members are radical ly at variance on most vital issues, and if united at all, are only united on is sues where their attitude threatens w idespread disaster to the whole coun try, cannot be trusted to govern in any matter. A party which, with faeil-i ease, changes all its convictions before election cannot be trusted to ad'aere PLUMBING There is plumbing and plumbing There is the kind that would have used Job's patience if there bad been plumbers in those days.

In other words, our govern mental efficiency proved equal not only to tho tasks that were anticipated, but to doing each unanticipated task as it arose. PANAMA. Our opponents can criticise what w.s did in Panama only on condition of misstating what was done. The ad ministration behaved throughout , not only with good faith, but with extra ordinary patience and large generosity toward those with whom it dealt. It was also mindful of American interests. It acted in strict compliance with the law passed by congress. Had not Pan ama been promptly recognized, and the trnnp.it aprnsa th i?fhnn. kprt mru-i. sibly foreign complications; while all chalice of building the canal would have been deferred certainly for years,, perhaps for a generation or more. Criticism of the action in t'his matter I is simply criticism of the only possible action wheh could have secured the b'.lding of the canal as well as the peace and quiet which we were, by treaty, bound to preserve along the line of transit across the isthmus. The ser vice rendered this country in securing the perpetual right to -onstruct, main tain, operate, and defend the canal was so great that our opponents do Hoi ven ture to raise the issue in straight for ward fashion; for if so raised there would be no issue. The decisive action which brought about this beneficent result was the exercise by the presi dent of the powers vested in hini, and in him alone, by theeonstitution ; the power to recognize foreign govern ments by entering into diplomatic re lations with them, and the power to make treaties 'Which, when ratified by the senate, become under the constitu tion part of the supreme law of the land.

THE PENSION ORDER, When our opponents speak of "en croachments" by the ' executive upon the authority of congress or tho ju diciary, apparently the act they ordin arily have in v'ew is Pension Order No. 78, issued under the authority of existing law. This order directed that hereafter any veteran of the civil war who had reached the age of sixty-two should be presumptively entitled to tho pension of six dollars a month, given under the dependent pension law to thosa whose capacity to earn their livelihood by manual labor has been decreased fifty per cent, and that by the time the age of severity was reach ed the presumption should be that the physical disability was complete; tho age being treated as an evidential fact in each case. This order was made in the performance of a duty impose! upon 'the president by an act of con gress, which requires the executive to make regulations to govern the subor dinates of the pension office in deter mining w"ho are entitled to pensions. President Cleveland had already exer cised'this power by a regulation 'which declared that seventy-five should be set as 'tho age at which total disability should be conclusively presumed. Similarly President McKinley estab lished sixty-five as the age at which half disability should be conclusively presumed. The regulation now in epjes- tio:i, in the exercise of the same power, supplemented these regulations made under Presidents Cleveland and McKinley. FINANCIAL POLICIES. So much for what our opponents openly or covertly advance in the way of 'an attack on the acts of the admin istration. When we come 'to consider the policies for which thev profess to stand we are met with the difficulty al ways ariaing when statements of policy are so roade that they can be inter preted in different ways. On some of the vHal questions that have confront ed the American people in the last de cade our opponents take the position that silence is the best possible way to convey their views. They contend that their lukewarm attKude of partial ac quiescence in what others have ac complished entitles them to be made the custodians of the financial honor and commercial interests which they have but recently sought to ruin. P.e ing unable to agree among themselve.? as to whether the gold standard is a curse or a blessing, and as to whether we ought or ought not rto have free ..... have apparently thought it expedient to avoid any committal on these sub jects, and individually each to follow his particular bent. Their nearest ap proaeh to a majority, judgment seems to be that it is now expedient to as sert their convictions one way or the otlier, and that the establishment of the gold standard by the republican pr.rty should not be disturbed unless there Is an alteration in the relative quantity of production of silver and gold. Men who hold sincere convic tions on vital questions can respect: equally sincere men with whose views they radically differ; and men miy confess a "change of faith without com promising t'heir honor or seif-.respect. But it is diilicult to respect an atti tude of such as has been fairly described above; and where there is no respect there can be no trust. A policy with so slender a basis of prin ciple would not stand the strain of a single year of business adversity. As for what our opponents say in reference to capital and labor, individ ual or corporate .here again all we need by way of answer is to point to wnat we nave actually done, and to say that if continued in power we shall continue to carrv one the nnltVv havfe been pursuing and to execute the laws a3 resolutely and fearlessly in the future as we have executed them in the past. THE TRUSTS. Th action of the attorney general in enforcing the anti-trust and interstate commerce laws, and the action or the last congress in enlarging the scope of the interstate commerce law, and in creating the department of commerce and labor, with a bureau of corpora tions have for the fin?t time opened a chance for the national government to deal intelligently and adequately with the questions affecting society, whether for good or for evil, because of the ac cumulation of capital in great corpor ations, and because of ithe new rela tions caused thereby. These laws are now being administered with entire ef ficiency; and as, in their working, need is showa for amendment or addition to them, whether better to secure tluV proper publicity, or better to guaran tee the rights of shippers, or in any other direction this need will be; met. It is now asserted, "that the common law, as developed, ' affords a complete MONEY TO LOAN LARGE MND OK EASURN CAPITAL TO LOAN ON GOOD REAL ESTATE SECURITY AT LOWEST PREVAILING RATES APPLY 10 DWIGHT B. HEARD Canttr and Adama Strati H al remedy against monopolies." THE TARIFF. When we take up the great question of the (tariff we are at once confronted by the doubt as to 'whether our oppon ents do or do not mean what they say. They say that "protection is robbery," anci promise ito carry themselves ac cordingly if they are given power. Yet prominent persons among them assert that they do not really' mean this and that if they come into power they will adopt our policy as regards the tariff; while others seem anxious to prove that lit is safe to give them partial power, because the power would be only partial, and therefore they would not be able to do mischief. The last is certainly a curious plea to advance on behalf of a party seeking to obtain control of the government. Of course, if our oponents are not sincere In their proposal to abolish the system of a protective tariff, there is no use in arguing the matter at all, save by pointing out again that if on one great issue they do not mean what they say, it Is hardly safe to trust them on any other issue. But if they are sincere in this matter, then their advent to power would mean domes tic misfortune and misery as wide spread and far-reaching as that which we saw ten years ago. When they speak of protection as "robbery," they of course must mean that it Is im moral to enact a. tariff designed (as is the present protective tariff) to se cure to the American wage-wot ker the benefit of the high standard of living which we desire to see kept up in this country. Now to speak of Qie tariff in this sense as "robbery," thereby giving it a moral relation, is not mere ly rhetorical; it is on its face false. Our opiKinents assert that they be lieve in reciprocity. Their action on the most important reciprocity treaty recently negotiated that with Cuba does not bear out this assertion. More over, there can be no reciprocity unless there is a substantial tariff; free trade and reciprocity are not compatible. We are on record as favoring arrange ments for reciprocal trade relations with other countries, these arrar.ge- J ments to be on ar. equitable basis of benet to .both the contracting parties. The republican party stands pledged to every wise and consistent methol of increasing the foreign commerce of the country. That it has kept its pledge is proven by the fact that while the domestic trade of this country exceeds in volume the entire export and im port trade of the nations of the world In closing what I have to say about the system of promoting American in dustry let me add a word of cordial v-reerrent with the no ;cv or in soni" v ay including within its benefits, by appropriate legislation, the American merchant marine. It is not creditable to us as a nation that our great ex port and import trade Fhould be well rdgh exclusively in the hands of for eigners. Ii. Is difficult to know if our oppon ents are really sincere in their demand for the reduction of the army. If in sincere, there is no need for comment, and if sincere, what shall we say In speaking to ratlonnl persons of an ap peal to reduce an army of 60 thousand men which is taking care of the inter f sts of over eighty million people? The army is now relatively smaller than It was in the days of Washington, when on the peace establishment there were ! thirty-six hundred soldiers, while there were a little less than four millions of ! people; smaller than it was in the I peaceful days of Jefferson, when there were fifty-one hundred soldiers to five million three hundred thousand popu lation. There is now one soldier to I every fourteen hundred people in this country less than one-tenth of one Ver cent. We cannot bo asked seriousy to ! arsrue as to the an,ount of Possible I tyianny contained in these figures. The iarmy as il is now is as FmlU as U can possibly be and serve its purpose as an effective nucleus for the organization, en,upment. and supply of volunteer army in time of need. PUBLIC EXTRAVAGANCE. Our opponents contend that the gov ernment is now administered extrav agantly, and that whereas there was "a surplus of $80,OOO,0f.O in 1900" there is "a deficit of more than H0,000,0f0" in the year that has just closed. Thi deficit is imaginary, and is ob tained by including In the' ordinary current expenses the sum of fifty mil lions, which was paid for the right of way of the Panama canal out of the accumulated surplus in the treas ury. Comparing the current or ordi nary expenses of nearly eighty millions for the year 1900, and of only a little more than eight millions for the year that has just clos?d. But this dimin ution of the annual surplus was brought about designedly by the aboli tion of the war taxes in the interval between the two dates. The acts of March 2. 1901, and April 12, 1902, cut down the internal revenue taxes to an amount estimated at one hundred and five millions a year. In other words, the reduction of taxation has been con siderably greater than the reduction in the annual surplus. Since the close of the war with Spain there has been no substantial change in the rate of annual expenditures. As compared with the fiscal year ending in June, 1901, for example, the fiscal year that has just closed showed a relatively small increase in expenditure (excluding the canal payment leferred to), while the year previous showed a relatively small decrease. THE PHILIPPINES. Our opponents promise independence to the Philippine Islands. Here again we are confronted by the fact that their irreconcilable differences' of opin ion among themselves, their proved in ability to create a constructive policy when in power, and their readiness, for the sake of momentary political expe diency, to abandon tho principles upon which they have insisted as essenrial, conspire to puzzle us as to whether they do or do not intend in good faith to carry out this promise. if they are given control rf the government. In their platform they declare for Inde pendence, apparently for their lan guage is a little obscure without qualification as to time; and indeed a qualification as to time is an absurd ity, for we have neither right nor pow er to bind our successors when it" is impossible to foretell conditions that le may confront them; while If there i3 any principle involved in the -matteo-, it is just as wrong to deny independ ence for a few years as to deny it for an indefinite period. But in later and equally official utterances by our oppo nents the term self-government was substituted , for Independence; the words used being so chosen that in their natural construction tluy de scribed precisely the policy now being carried on. The language of the plat form indicated a radical change of policy; the later utterances Indicated a continuance of the present policy. But this caused trouble in their own ranks; and in a still later, although less formal, utterance, the self-government promise was recanted, and inde pendence at some future time was promised in its plr-.ce. They have occu pied three entirely different positions within fifty days. Which is the prom- se they really intend to keep? To promise to give the Filipinos in dependence when it is "prudent" to do so, or when they are "fit" for it. of course implies that they are not fit for it now. But as we must ourselves be the judges as to when they become fit," and when it would be "prudent" to keep such a promise if it wre made, it necessarily follows that to make such a promise now would amount to a deception upon the Filipinos. It may be well that our opponents have no real intention of putting their promise into effect. If this is the case, if, in other words, they are insincere in the promise they muJte. it Is only necessary to say again that it is un wise to trust men who are false in one thing to deal with anything. Faithfully yours, THEODORE ROOSEVELT. THE CAMPAIGN OPEN, Following the Issuance of the Presi dent's Letter. Chicago, Sept. 11. With the issuance of President Roosevelt's letter of ac ceptance the -republican national cam paign may be considered as formally open. A feeling of indifference on the part of voters has been a cause of alarm for many western politicians and !t lias not been confined to those of any one party. Men who do not rank with workers in any party have been Im pressed with the fact that the avera man is not concerned with politics this year. Various reasons have been as signed and organized bodies have been censured for not stlrirng up interest A statement from the western repub lican headquarters, however, refute this idea. The managers of the party advance the opinion that a politira hysteria will be appreciated as a bless ing and thst the situation does not Indicate carelessness. Business men, they explain, are sat isfied with a campaign which does rot disturb business conditions. SCENE AT DEPOT TrunKs of Actor Attached by Doctor's Lawyer. There was a most unhappy scene at the Id. & P. depot last .evening jus before tha depasture of the Maricopa bound train. Those immediately con cerned were Joseph Kemmlngton, of the Spooner Dramatic company, and Judge J. H. Langston, representing Dr. John W. Thomas. Each side had Its own clear story, but there was only one side to the matter so far as the two or tbjree Ecore of people who had come to bid the Spooner company bon voyage were concerned. Dr. Thomas bad placed a bill In the hands of Judge Langston for collection. The bill was for treatment accorded Mrs. Renaming- ton's mother. ' Items of it appear to have been disputed and Mr. Reming ton stated that he had- received two bills and that these did not agree. At the depot the trunks which bore Mr, Remmington's name, but which in reality were the property of the Spoon er company, were attached for th amount. When this became known tens and twenties were offered Rem mington in profusion. He had th chance of his life to become a million Eire. However, he dug down into hi own jeans and produced the amoun demanded. Then he asked why Dr, Thomas had not accepted the money when Mrs. Remminglon had offered it to him in the afterijoon. Judge Lang ston said that she had not been to the doctor's office and had made no offer of payment. Later Dr. Thomas stated to a reporter that Mrs. Rem mington had called and asked for a; extension of time, but that he had re fused no money on the grounds tha the matter was in the collector's hands, nor had the money been tendered When Langston made the assertion that he did and the matter had so far progressed that many present un derstood Judge Langston to dispute the lady's word, Remmington made vicious lead for his man, but was re strained by Messrs. Wallock, Spooner and others who, by the way, had tears in their eyes, and who left it to the people assembled to vindicate Rem mington by their cheers which wen supplemented by offers of moncv. Rem mington was carried uboaid the tra struggling and threatening and beg ging with tears in his eyes to bo allow ed to physically resent the insult of fercd his wife.

JAPANESE LOSSES. A Count Made of the Casualties About Liao Yang. - . Washington, D. C, Sept. 11. A dis patch from Tokio, which reached the Japanese legation today placed the to tal casualties on the Japanese side at the battle of Liao Yang at 17,339 of ficers and men killed and wounded. Of these the army of the right (Kuroki's) lost 4,866; the center, (Oku's) 4,992; and the left (Nodzu's) 7,681. The number of officers killed was 136 and the number wounded. 464. ESTIMATE OF RUSSIAN LOSSES. This Also Came From J apanese Sources. Tokio, Sept. 11. Telegraphic reports received here today from the headquar ters of the Mancaaurian army declare the Japanese to be in full possession of the Yentai coal ni'ines, and estimate the Russian losses up to the fall of Liao Yang at over 25,000 men and give ad ditional details of the disposition of Russian forces around Liao Yang dur ing the battle. The estimateof losses does not include those suffered by Russians in the rear guard actions fought after the evacu ation of Liao Yang. The date upon which the Japanese occupied Yentai coal mines is not given. According (to Russian prisoners and other men the Russian force at Liao Yang included the full strengtn of the second, fourth, fifth, tenth and seventeenth army corps and portions of other corps. Before the battle the Rus sians assembled a great number of railroad cars at Liao Yang, which were constantly used in the removal of wounded men, arms and ammunition stores to the rear for three or four days. Vast quantities of arms, am munition anu stores were burned at Liao Yang before the final retreat, but an enormous amount of shells, ammu nition, powder wagons, stores and mis cellanous property were captured by the Japanese. Among the ammuni tion captured, was a quantity of dum dum bullets. PORT ARTHUR WELL IN HAND. The Japanese Are Nearly in Control of the Fortress. Cheefoo, Sept. 11.
