And so, I must say. if it should ap pear to any one that in noting and denouncing abuses and failures on the pirt of the present administration any 1 oer.se is assumed. I urge the impossi bility of separating the present occu pant f the White Hiuse from his own anointed one. It has been made evident in the ponding campaign that the republicans will seek to conjure with the name of Roosevelt and will rely upon the pres ident's policies as a prized asset. The president has advertised himself and his policies with a frequency and abil ity that surpasses the best efforts of the shrewdest press agent. A distin guished republican, a former cabinet officer, once jiubliiiy proclaimed the provident to be the. greatest eHnent of the art of advertising the has known. The country has been told and not allowed to forget that, in his opinion, his energies have been devot ed to the accomplishment of many high purposes, and that his work is yet incomplete it is so only because his undertakings were too vast to be car ried to success during his term of of fice. "My policies must continue. So the champion of these would transfer office and power to his favorite cabi net minister, and his spear is to have a fellow. The pretense is that the fight must go on under the leader des ignated by him until the last foe shall have surrendered or lies inglorious in the dust. The nomination of his would-be successor was largely ac complished by the use of official pat ronage and coarse machine methods and has delighted the chief apostle of stren uosity, and at the same time, has not perturbed the conscience of the one time civil service reformer, now the boss, an adept in the bestowal of pub lic r'under and forgetfulness of all his resounding moral commonplaces.

What are the policies which consti tute the capital of the republican party in this campaign and that are relied upon to support the candidacy of Mr. Taft? To recall democratic platforms, speeches, and measured is to convince any man that many of the president's public utterances were derived from an avowed familiarity with the teachings of our party. His utterances that are democratic have given him his only claim to be a reformer and have con tributed more than all else to the pop ularity he has enjoyed. The heir and the party are committed to "unfalter ing adherence to the policies of the president. What are these policies and what are the achievements of the president and party? Campaign Contributions. It must be admitted that the republic cannot long survive if fraud and cor ruption become material factors In our elections. No man has said more than the president about the corruption of elections. You recall his message to congress in December, 1905, where he said that: "it has been only too clearly shown that certain men at the head of these large corporations take but small note of the ethical distinction between hon esty and dishonesty: they draw the line only this side of what may be called law-honesty, the kind of honesty nec essary in order to avoid falling into the clutches of the law." We have here the condemnation of the practice. Has he proved Ids' faith by his works? Is it true or not that four years ago he selected for hts cam paign manager a novice in politics whose principal qualification for the position was the power he held over the corporation of the land? Is it true or not that the official place as secre tary of commerce and labor gave full knowledge of these business secrets and relations of corporations to this cam paign manager, and clothed him with power, with the assent of the presi dent, to punish or reward them by publishing or withholding their seen ts that he had collec'd as such secretary. Is it true or not that, with this pow er held In terror over the corporations, he solicited or had his agents solicit campaign contributions from ther.i? Is It true or not that such request un der such circumstances was a demand uMm the corporations a demand that they acceeded to, knowing that the man who made it had the power to punish them in case they refused? Can it be doubted that in this way vast sums were raised? If so, how much of these contributions were used for legitimate expenses and how much for corruption purposes we do not know. Notwithstanding savage ante-elcctlon denial we know that a subsequent in vestigation of certain insurance com panies uncovered the fact that large amounts were contributed by these corporations to the republican cam paign fund not the money of the men who gave It, but money covertly taken without consent of stockholders or pol icy holders and entered on the books In a way calculated to conceal the em bezzlement. AH this was done In the interest of the republican candidate for president. The money was used, the candidate was elected and he con tinues to deliver lectures on decency and' for honesty in elections, sending messages to congress, on publicity of campaign contributions but at times when these were certain to be unavail ing. The Chicago convention has met, had transacted Its business, and has adjourned. The question of a publicity bill was mooted there, was defeated, and it would never have seen the light of day except through the unaided ef forts of one solitary member of the committee on platform and resolutions, who dragged it out only to wi'ness Its deep entombment by the body of a convention. Thus died one of "my policies," to which that convention In effusive, if dictated language declared tn Its platform their "unfaltering ad herence." Injunction and Contempts of Courts. Let me go on. There has been and is now a public demand for legislation regulating, not abolishing, the process of injunction and the power to punish for alleged indirect or constructive con tempts of court. Ever since 1898 the democratic party have protested against hasty and ill-considered use of injunctions and has been insisting on the right of fair trial In all cases of constructive contempts. The republlt can party have been avoiding this question. So the president In taking it up, and Mr. Taft in his letter to the labor unions advocated a measure that the democratic party, acting In behalf of the correct administration of public justice, has been demanding for twelve years. If the president was in earnest when he sent his message to congress he was to that extent democratic. We are authorized to conclude that in framing, revising or dictating the Chicago platform he suffered from a lapse of memory or abandoned the policy he had so vigorously urged in his official capacity, for he said in a message to congress: "I also urge that action be taken along the line of recommendations I have already made concerning injunc tions in labor disputes. No temporary restraining order should be issued by any court with out notice, and the pe tition for a permanent injunction upon which such temporary restraining or der has been issued should be beard by the court issuing the same within a reasonable time say not to exceed a week or thereabouts from the date when the order was issued. It is worth considering whotheY it would not give greater popular confidence In the impartiality of sentences for contempt if It was required that the Issue should be decided by another judge than the one issuing the injunctions, except where the contempt is committed in the-presence of the court or other cases of urgency." Surely he and his party eulogists forget that he had but a few months before advised congress that "it is worth considering whether it would not give greater popular confidence in the impartiality of sentences for con tempt If it was required that the Is sues should be decided by another judge than the one issuing the injunc tion." There has not been a session of con gress in twelve years at which the re publican party could not have passed a law prescribing, defining and regu lating the Issuance of Injunctions and providing for fair trials in contempt cases. Yet nothing has been done to give the wage earner fair treatment and less than nothing is offered to him In the Chicago deliverance. The meaningless generalities of its Injunc tion plank are an Insult to the Intelli gence of those who demand reasonable and substantial legislation to prevent the admitted abuse of this judicial process. Again the president said to congress: "Twenty-two years ago, by act of June 29, 18S6, trades unions were rec ognized by law. and the right of la boring people to combine for lawful purposes was formally recognized, this right Including combination for mutual protection of the individual rights of the workmen in the prosecution of their trade ortrades;- and in act of June 1, 1S9S, strikes were recognized as legal in the same provision that forbade participation in or instigation of force or violence against persons or property, or the attempt to prevent others from Working, by violence, threat or Intimidation. The business man must be protected in person and property, and so must the farmer and tile wage worker, and as regards all alike, the rights of peaceful combi nation for all lawful purposes should be explicitely recognized." An In still another message he said: "It must be remembered that a pre liminary injunction in a labor case, if granted without adequate proof may often settle the dispute between the parties and therefore If improperly granted may do irreparable wrong. Yet there are many judges who assume a matter of course granting of a pre liminary injunction to be the ordinary and proper Judicial disposition of such cases, and there have undoubtedly been flagrant wrongs committed by Judges in connection with labor even within the last few years." It is Important to note that the act of June 29, 189G. was passed at the first session of the first congress that met under the first democratic administration after the civil war and there labor receded its first recogni tion from the government. One re publican administration had succeed ed another for twenty-four years and not one act was passed in the in terest of labor or In acknowledge ment of its right to fair and equal treatment The republicans enacted a tariff which enhanced the price of products that labor has made and cap ital owned, and they pretend to do this with a view of securing for labor higher wages. What they gave, how ever, was to the capitalist and they trusted him to divide. That the In creased profits of protected employers have made them able to pay the labor ing man higher wages no one can doubt, but it remains for the saving grace of Almighty God so to touch their hearts as to make them willing to pay the higher wages. Among the contributions that went to make up the monument that this great man, Grover Cleveland, builded in the re spect and affection of his countrymen, few are more striking than his almost instant recognition, as evidenced by this act of 1886, of the sane and just demands of labor on the law-making power. Under him democracy blazed the way and now remains the unflinch ing champion of every sound reform in this direction. Immunity from law we promtse nobody; Immunity from oppression; from its very infancy the democratic party has been dedicated to establish and secure. The Tariff. The president and his party declare that a pre-election revision of the tar iff would be unwise. This assertion has been repeated In advance of every election since the en actment of the Dingley law and surely the country will not again be deceived by. republican promises to revise the tariff after the election. Their appeal to 'the people is this: Give us another chance to make you a promise and the promise will be made. What does protectionism mean. Un der the republican policy of protection, the people, the consumers, wh'le pay ing a little over 1300,000 per year Into the treasury through Import duties on foreign goods, pay between H.250.000, O00:and $1,500,000,000 a year in the enhanced price of home produced goods. Our domestic manufacturers exceed our total Imports by ten to one and they are nearly all protected, rt Is safo to say that the people pay at least J5.00 to the already wealthy ben eficiaries of protectionism for every dollar that is paid into the reasury. Behind the wall 1 of high protection, which in some cases Is altogether pro hibitive, the trusts levy enormous trib ute on the people. This has amounted to not less thafi $10,000,000,000 in the last decade, not counting the amount paid to support the government. This money has come from the iHickets of the farmer, the mechanic, the mer chant, the professional man and the laborer, and has been poured into the coffers of the protected classes. More than two-thirds of the capital that de rives benefit from protectionism be longs to the trusts. The democrats will revise the tariff downward and In the Interest of the tax payers, who are always forgotten by the republican party. There must be a revision and a gradual reduction of the tariff by the friends of tariff reduction for the com mon good and not by the beneficiaries of its abuses who justify use of the Impost taxing power for the chief pur pose of conferring privileges and prof it upon the few at the expense of the many. "The president himself said: "I am of the opinion that one change In the tariff could with advantage be made forthwith. Our forests need ev ery protection and one method of pro tecting them would be to put upon the free list wood pulp, with a correspond ing reduction upon paper made from wood pulp, when they come from any country that does not put an export duty upon them." What was the fruit of this recom mendation? In the house a committee was appointed to investigate the sub ject. This was a scheme to muddy the waters, to placate the newspapers and to excuse non-aetlon. The repub lican majority decided to do nothing. In fact, my countrymen, as I recall it the only work done by the freak Ways and Means committee of the republi can house In the matter of the re vision or reduction of the admittedly unjustifiable tariff was to report out a bill to put upon the free list tea sweepings and tea dust. This is the sum total of the result of all the anti election, tariff revision promises made and repeated In several campaigns. Trusts. It Is the shortest of steps from the tariff to the trusts. Let it be denied If they care to deny it, that the tariff is the real mother of the trusts. The president has a great pretense of destroying trusts. Let him tell of the result. In a message delivered to congress ho said: "The department of justice has fir the last four years devoted more at tention to the enforcement of anti trust legislation than anything else. Much has been accomplished; particu larly marked has been the moral ef fect of the prosecutions; but it is in creasingly evident that there will be a vury insufficiently beneficial result in the way of. economic charge. The suc cessful prosecution of one device to evade the law immediately devolopes anothtr device to. evade the law im mediately developcs another device to accomplish the same purpose. What Is needed is not sweeping prohibition of every arrangement, good or bad, which may tend to restrict competition, but such adequate supervision and regula tion as will prevent other abuses in no way connected with restriction or competition." This Is an admission of failure and one does ' not -need fo dwell on this admission than toTsay that the Im prisonment of these who violated the law would not have a more salutary effect than all that has been done or might have boon done In this direction during his entire administration. The democratic party will strike down special privileges whether grant ed through a high protective tariff or granted to government chartered cor porations by permission of law. All trusts owe their birth and their ability to continue existence to one or the other of these two forms of special privileges. For private monopoly no business approximating 'private mo nopoly in another or In magnitude, can endure without one or the other. The Recent Panic. Proceeding at once to a mention of the republican party's dealing with the dlsturlied finances of the country, we are brought before that curious legislative compound, the Vreeland Aldrich bill. The republican party boasts of its knowledge of finance. What have they given us in this law? It will be remembered that in 1892-3 under a repuolican adminis tration a panic was anticipated. The panic came and with republican ef frontery they charged that panic to the democratic party. Now, controll ing every branch of the government, they Ignomlniously seek to charge on us every consequence growing out of their own maladministration of the government. The only sort of legislation with any great force of public opinion be hind it that the republican party at tempted to enact was a bill to pre vent the recurrence of panics. The last panic was a depositors' panic, brought about by fear upon the part of the depositor that he could not get back his money which had been left in bank.- This fear was pro duced by the fact, which had become known, that the banks had been lending their depositors' money to risky, if not unlawful concerns. A run upon the banks b depositors, not by note holders, in consequence occurred. The republican party has attempted to prevent the recurrence, of depositors' panics by an emergency bank note bill. In the provisions of which they have decreased the se curity that the depositor had in a two-fold way, first by reducing the amount of reserve required by law to be held, and secondly, by making the new emergency notes a prior lien upon all the assets of the bank, de creasing the security that the bank had to keep fo the depositor and increasing the bank liabilities that might be charged against deposits. In my opinion it is an accomplished scheme to enable banks that have floated unquestionable enterprises to digest otherwise indigestible ' securi ties by making them the basis of a national circulating medium of ex change. The future will show wheth er this miserable make-shift, part house Infamy and part senate infamy, as a great republican newspaper has said, will answer its purpose. What ever It may show in the way of sins of omission or commission, not only Is it the fault of republican legisla (Continued on page 1.)
