TIIE ARIZONA UEPUBLICAJf FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 10, 1908.
PtRMANtNTLY ORGANIZED (Continued from page 3.) lion, but the evil which it ' pretends to cure was , altogether and exclu sively the fruit of republican legis lation. Theirs is the responsibility for the bill, and theirs also the re sponsibility for the condition which led to the enactment of the law. Republican Failures. Thus, my countrymen, in this re view we have the spectacle of a president urging- a refractory con gress to pass needed reform and ap pealing in vain, or we have another spectacle, that of a president for the sake of his own popularity or for the sake of the popularity of his own candidate making a political play by urging that congress do what he must have known it would not do and what we are forced to consider he did not wish done, The president stands sponsor for Mr. Taft. He desires that the laboring man; t,hat those who would have the government ef fectively regulate the railroads; that those who would revise and reduce the tariff and destroy the -trusts; these should believe that llr. Taft Is not a reactionary but a militant re former, saturated with his ideas and pledged to carry out "my policies." Mr. Taft will have to receive altout seven million votes before he can execute any policy. To get the votes for him the president wishes to show what fine policies his chosen one will carry out if elected; and he can show it cheaply by .pointing to rec ommendations that his party asso ciates have ignored and will ignore. If the president were sincere and honestly insistent and still was not heeded by his party, notwithstanding his great personal popularity, what reason is there to suppose that the same party associates will not be deaf to the same recommendations made by one who is merely the president's legatee? We may inquire here why the special interests, those enjoying special privileges, predatory wealth and I think I quote Mr. Roosevelt, who borrowed the words from a distinguished democrat have all united in expressing eminent sat isfaction upon Mr. Taffs nomina tion? The masses and equal rights to all on the one side or the classes and privileges on the other under which flag. Mr. Taft? "Xo man can serve two masters." 'I The press has told us in what seem ed to be semi-official statements from the White House that the president was so intent upon his policies that if congress adjourned without enacting them into law he would call an extra session. Congress did adjourn leaving unpassed most of bis favored meas ures and the extra session was never called. If the play results in repub lican votes it will have accomplished its purpose. If the president desired to have this legislation the denvK-rats were ready to join in its passage. The democratic leader of the house, au thorized by all his party associates re peatedly offered the entire democratic strength in support of these measures. The republicans have less than sixty majority in the house. If thirty of them had Joined the democrats all of these "measures would have passed there and gone to a republican senate. So far as the house is concerned less than one-seventh of the republicans were needed to change their recom mendations into law. The republican support was not forthcoming. Lt us see what could have been done if legislation instead of party ad vantage had been desired. If a part of the republicans had joined the democrats in support of measures proposed by a republican president the power with which some federal judges have hastiiv thrown their authority into the scale against labor would have been regulated by law. A fair trial in all cases of direct or constructive contempt of court would now be provided by law. Labor would be exempt from the prohibition of the Sherman law against combinations. Wood pulp and print paper would now be on the free list and the pres ent tax upon intelligence to that ex tent abolished. No longer would it be in the power of one federal judge, sitting in cham bers, hearing evidence ex parte, upon the allegation that a state law is con fiscatory, to suspend it by temporary injunction. A democratic measure what passed the senate at the last session of congress, providing that It should he necessary for three judges to act together for the purpose of is suing such an order, would now be the law. A law requiring the publication be fore election of campaign contribution would have been enacted. Democratic Duty. We know there is a brighter pros pect. If the love of country and lib erty is still strong In the hearts of the American people; if an oath to support the constitution is now con sidered by them as binding; If the people are in earnest in their protests against the rule of Insolent wealth, the unauthorized and baleful influence-of corporations and the exactness of the trusts; if the manliness of the fathers has been transmitted to the sons, the fourth of next March will mark the advent of the gladsome light of de mocraey and the beginning of the re turn to constitutional government honestly and economically administered. HONDIRAN RtVOLUIION TO BE CLOSELY CONFINED The Adjacent Central American Coun try Are Warned to Stand Aloaf. Washington, July 9. All the Central American diplomats in Washington ex cept Senor lTgarte of Honduras and Ambassador Creel of Mexico discussed the situation incident to the revolu tion in Honduras with Acting Secre tary Bacon of the state department to day. Both the United States and Mexico are pressing upon the Central Ameri can countries the necessity of absolute neutrality pending in the trouble in Honduras, which according to the treaties ratified by the Central Amer ican peace conference in Washington last winter is declared to be neutral ground. The re:ort that one of Nicaragua's was vessels bad sailed for another Central American port presumably Amapala, Honduras has caused some consternation among the Central American diplomats. o REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN ABOUT TO BE ORGANIZED Chairman Hitchcock Will Begin the Work of Outlining It Tomorrow. I EASTERLIN6 & WHITNEY UNDERTAKERS Hot Springs. July 9. Mr. Taft has planned to devote next week to writing his speech of acceptance of the republican nomination. Up to the present time lie has not written a word of the speech to be delivered at Cincinnati on July 28. Not until it is completed does he desire to dis cuss the document. Chairman Frank H. Hitchcock of the republican national committee ar rived here this morning and after a short interview with Taft stated that he would not be ready to announce the memljcrship of the executive com mittee or make any statement re garding the organization of the cam paign before a weeK from today. Hitchcock will leave here tomorrow evening for Washington to take up the work of outlining the plan of tho campaign. ' o A HOLD UP FAILED. The Lone Robber Apparently Shot and- Wounded. Spokane, July 9. A lone highway man attempted to hold up the wsct bound passenger train No. 3 on the Great Northern near Naples, Idaho, this afternoon. The highwayman got nothing but fled after exchanging sev eral shots with the crew and passen gers. It is thought he was hit as he was seen to fail just before he enter ed the brush a short distance from the train. A FRENCH LIBEL SUIT. Paris. July 9. The jury In the Hum bert libel case against the Matin is for jl'O.fiOfl damages on account of an ar ticle printed the day after the trial in which the verdict was criticised in which Senator Humbert sued the Matin for connecting his name with the swindling operations of one Henri Rochette and was awarded damages in the sum of 110,000. Ill W. Washington st, Phoenix, AHmm. I BRYAN GE1S NOMINATION (Continued from Page One) in order to avoid Injury, so quick and fierce was the rush. NO PLACE FOR DOVES. A dove that flew through the hall while Dunn was speaking was the first of a flock that was now turned loose. They flew about the hall In wild terror, seeking escape from the maddening tumult and uproar that raged on the convention floor. The, standards of New York and Georgia were quickly made objects of attack. The crowd endeavored to drag them up and carry them in the parade going around the hall. Strong hands, however, held the poles and determined men gathered close about them and the standards never moved. At 9:. 10 when the tumult had con tinued for twenty-three minutes, the parade halted in front of the speak- More Telling Piano Bargains For Today and the balance of the week we place on sale a number of high-grade used pianos, such as Steinway, Chickering and Willard, at the insignificant little sum of $150 It's dollars to doughnuts their like cannot be bought elsewhere short of $250.

There the state standards clustered thickest and the marchers stood and yelled like men whose po litical enthusiasm had for the time being bereft them of all sense. Af ter thirty minutes' demonstration the pounding of Chairman Clayton's Im mense gavel could be heard above the roar of the crowd. At this time many women who had been brought to the floor by their husbands among the delegates, in danger of being crushed by the fran tic shouters and marchers, sought refuge In sections set apart for the newspaper men, which had been kept reasonably clear of invaders after the first great onslaught. BRYAN HEARD IT ALL. A feature of the demonstration never before a part of a national' con vention was the greater part of the cheering and uproar was distinctly heard by the candidate at his home 500 miles away. A telephone to which wires were attached and an immense megaphone had been placed in the hall. Mr. Bryan at the other end of the wire was at Fairview where he was able to hear the cheering which willed the hall. "We won't go home till morning" played the band and the crowd yelled in approval. At 10:20 p.m. when the demonstra tion's last cry had died away. Chair man Clayton directed the secretary to continue the call of the states. Arkansas passed. California yielded to Oregon. Ex-Senator Gearin of that state was then introduced to second the nomination of Bryan. Ar kansas which had passed the early roll," gave way to North Carolina, and ex-Governor Glenn of that state took the stand to second the nomi nation of Bryan. Governor Swanson of Virginia also second the nomina tion of Bryan. JOHNSON'S NAME. The opportunity of the Johnson supiwrters came when the roll call reached Connecticut, which state gave way to Minnesota. Wlnfield S. Hammond of the latter state then took the stand and amid a consider able volume of applause placed in nomination Governor John A. John son of Minnesota. By the time that Governor Johnson was placed In nomination the gallery crowds had materially dwindled. The aisles were no longer filled and there were many empty chairs. That all the cheers had not yet been killed in the convention was made manifest when Hammond concluded. The loyal sons of the North Star state responded to cheer, and a number of delegates in Massachusetts and Okla homa Jumped In. Some Georgia dele gates mounted chairs and after a few minutes added their voices to those of the Minnesota men. NOMINATION OF. GRAY. Order was finally restored after 2" minutes. I. L. irvipg Handy, of Dela ware was waiting on the rostrum to name George Gray of his state. When Handy had spoken a few minutes he was Interrupted by the long waited for chairman of committee on resolu tions. ' "Gentlemen of the convention,' 'said the chairman, "I now have the pleas ure of presenting to you the chairman of the committee on resolutions. Gov ernor Haskell of Oklahoma," Haskell then read the platform. The reading of the injunction plank was heard with the deepest attention. The declaration In favor of a revision of the injunction law was first ap plauded. The other sections were warmly approved and when the plat form was finished the convention broke into cheers. The reading of the platform was concluded at 12:.r6 a.m.. Governor Haskell having read for a few min utes less than one hour. "Chairman, I move the adoption of the report," said Haskell, turning to the chairman. "The question Is on agreeing to the report of the committee on plat form. All in favor of the platform as read will signify by saying aye," announced Clayton. The chorus of affirmative votes was unanimous and the adoption of the platform was loudly cheered. When the call of the roll of states for the presidential nomination was resumed, Florida yielded to Augustus Thomas of Missouri, who made a seconding speech in behalf of Bryan. "Idaho," called the clerk. "Idaho yields to Texas." came the announcement, and State Senator Looney, of the latter' delegation took the platform to add another second to Bryan. "Illinois," called the clerk and W. K. Williams of that state come to the stand to deliver a seconding speech to Bryan. "The state of Indiana," resumed the clerk. John W. Kern arose and yielded the state's place to Kentucky, and Repre sentative Ollie James was warmly greeted. And so on the call of the states pro ceeded until every seconding speech had been made. The balloting was quickly begun. Ing before the end of the list of states had been reached the nomination of .Bryan was accomp lished and the convention broke into a tumult of enthusiasm. At a late hour It was still in session. THE PRINCIPLES Over Which the Committee Labored Until Nearly Midnight. Denver, July 9. During the debate In the resolutions committee on the tariff plank, a motion to strike out a recommendation to place on the free list articles whose protection aided the trusts, was defeated by the close vote of 26 to 22. One of the most spirited debates arose over the amendment offered by ex-United States Senator James Smith of New Jersey, suggesting the necessity of recognizing the cost of labor in revising the tariff schedules. The provision was sharply antagon ized as undemocratic and after sev eral hours' debate was withdrawn by the introducer, it is said, upon a tel egraphic request from Bryan. The committee defeated ex-Senator Dubois' anti -polygamy proposition by a tie vote of 20 to 20. The committee on resolutions fin ished the work of the platform and adjourned at 11:20. . The last plank to be adopted was that on the trust question. THE STATEHOOD PLANK. The following is the statehood plank: "The national democratic party for the last sixteen years has labored for the admission of Arizona and New Mexi co as separate states into the federal SICK HEADACHE I - l Positively cored by A A nrr n Q these little Pills. , Jf l I L l 0 Tb7 11180 kUcto Dte m treas from Dyspepsia.

We favor the" immediate admission of these territories as separate states. THE SOP TO LABOR. The Text of the Anti-Injunction Plank. The following is the text of the labor and injunction plank: "The courts of justice are the bul wark of our lilicrties and we yield none of our purpose to maintain their dignity. Our party has given the lench a long line of distinguished judges who have added to the respect and confidence which in that depart ment must be jealously maintained. "We resent the attempt of the re publican party to raise a false issue respecting the judiciary. It is an un just reflection upon the great body of our citizens to assume that they lack respect for the courts. "It is the function of the courts to interpret the laws which the peo ple create, and if the laws appear to work economic, social or political in justice It is our duty to change them. The only basis upon which the integrity "of our courts can stand Is that of unswerving justice, and the protection of life, liberty and prop erty, if judicial processes may be abused we should guard them against abuse. "Kxperience has Toven the neces sity of a modification of the present law relating to injunctions ana we reiterate the pledge of our national platform tj 1S96 and 1904 to favor the measure' which passed the United States senate , in 196. but which the republican congress has ever since refused to enact, relating to con tempts in federal courts and provid ing for trial by jury of cases of in direct contempt. "Questions of judicial practice have arisen especially in connection with industrial disputes. We deem that the parties to all judicial proceeding should be treated with rigid impar tiality and thnt injunctions should not be issued in any cases in which injunctions would 'not issue if no in dustrial disputes were involved. "The expanded organization of in dustry makes it essential that there should le no abridgement of the right of wage earners and producers to organize for protection and wages and the Improvement of labor condi tions to the end that such labor or ganizations' members should not be regarded as illegal combinations in restraint of ' trade. We favor an eight hour day on all government works. "We pledge the democratic party to the enactment of a law by con gress as far as federal jurisdiction extends for a general employers' lia bility act covering injury to the body or loss of life to the employe. We pledge the democratic party to the enactment of a law creating a de partment of lalior represented sepa rately in the president's cabinet, which department shall include the subject of mines and mining." The committee agreed upon the fol lowing resolutions regarding Abraham Lincoln's birthday celebration: "Whereas, the 100th anniversary of the birthday of Abraham Lincoln occurs on Fehraury 12. lu!, therefore be it. "Resolved by the democratic nation al convention that we recommend an appropriate celebration throughout the land." The committee voted down a reso lution that hereafter a majority vote be sufficient to establish the nomina tion of any candidate for president or vice president in any democratic na tional convention. ice Creams $ and Sherbets Call at our big popular Ice Cream parlor; it is the coolest place in the city.
