In order that the state governiment may be brought nearer to the people, the debmoCrats advocate the election of all importait state officers by popu lar vote, thus reducing as much as possible the so-called patronage of the governor and increasing the power of the people. Under the Direct Pri mary Nomination law pledged by the democrats, there is no -reason to fear that state offices willl be filled by un worthy men. To put an end to cor rupt methods at party primaries and political conventions the democratic party comes before the voters with a definite remedy and demands: "A Direct Primary Nomination law, conducted under the Australian ballot system, covering all state, coun ty and municipal elective otfices, and providing for the printing of the names of all candidates upon one bal lot under the proper titles." There is a distinct pledge for a clean ballot.; a pledge for the law that will put nominations for the people's otfi ces into the hands of the people; a recognition and declaration that the rights of the people are safe wit h the people, and that in. the nomination of candidates for public offices the vest ed interests should have neither part nor lot. Not only that, but the dem ocratic pledge when enacted will for ever put. an end to "contesting dele gat ions." The democrats have this year elim inated from their platform all unim portant matter, pledged themselves to a platform that means the aboli tion of corporations meddling in poli tics. For that condition the demo crats offer a sure remedy for corrupt legislation in Montana. The demo crats of this state are pledged to and demand: An initiative and referen dum amendment identical in all ma terial provisions with the amendment adopted by the voters of Oregon and sustained by the supreme court of that state. This places in the hands of the vot ers the power to veto at the ballot box vicious laws that may be passed by foolish or corrupt legislators, and to adopt by popular vote at the bal lot box laws necessary to the state and its people. Pretending to imitate the demo cratic program the republicans are trying to deceive the people by en dorsing "initiative and referendum laws" well knowing that the consti tution must be amended by popular vote before we can have initiative and referendum in this state, and that the provisions of the constitu tion compel the supreme court to de clare unconstitutional any laws that, attempt to do what can be done only by a constitutional amendment. Oppressed by a most unjust burden of high railroad and express rates, and arbitrary rules of the railroad corpor ations, the people of Montana demand a Railroad Commission to regulate the rates and methods of transporta tion companies within the state. lines. Gov. Toole was the first man to make public suggestion of a railroad com mission, in a campaign document. Crushed by high rates and annoying regulations the stockmen of the state last winter- endorsed Governor Toole's suggestion of a railroad commission, to be elected by the people. The pas sage of a direct primary nomination law will insture the nomination Hof men who are trusted by the people. The democratic party also demanids an amendment to the constitution, empowering the state board of equal izatlorn to equalize property assess ments in the state. That is the pow er the voters thought they were giv ing to the state board of equalization when they adopted the constitutibon, FIT FOR A KING When we say that our over coats are fit for a king, we mean a king whose clothes fit him. j ýHere are win ter overcoats that are Easy to Get Into, Easy to Pay for ,ý . 4 Hard to Wear Out .Hard to Beat.

The democratic platform is so plain that any voter can understand what, it means. It leaves no loopholes for unworthy legislators; it has no trap doors to catch unsuspecting or confid ing voters.
