GOVERNOR JOHNSON'S VIEWS
(Dy Willis J. Abbt)
Washington, Jan. 7 A New York
laper asked Governor Johnson of
Minnesota, this 'question, "What
must the democra.lc party do to
Tho question was brief; Tho an
swer fills marly five columns.
The newspaper, namely tho World,
opisised thu democrat! ' party In
18Ufi, gave It only a nomlii'tl sup
isirt In 1000 and supported Judge
Parker enthusiastically In ItiOI. When
the World fought tho party noml
ID e In lfi'Jfi that nominee polled thu
biggest vote ever given a democrat
ic candidate for thu presidency, nnd
lb generally believed to have been
elected except for notorious frauds.
When the World gavu only a per
functory support to the same nom
inee his vote fell oft something more
than five hundred thousand. When
tho World plunged enthusiastically
It'Ui support of Judge Parker and a
reactionary platform, tho democratic
vote fell off 1,500,000.
Cov. Johnson is too good and sip
ular a man tu have his prospects
ruined by thu effort of the New York
World to make It nppear that he
Is Its chosen candidate.
Cov, Johnson Is a democrat. One
of the Western typo that stands
for real democracy. Ills long commu
nication to tho World expresses
his beliefs and should be given wider
publicity than even that newspaper
can afford. Ilu avows his belief that
the tariff Is the paramount Issue.
Possibly this Is m, unquest'lini.ibly
It Is one of the chief Issues. It Is
an Issue that appeals particularly
to New York. Hut great as It is it
Is not tho only issue before thu
American people. The railroads, tho
trusts and the burden of federal
taxation all are of equal Importance.
Why Is It not proper to put Into
one phrase In the democratic plat
form the demand for tariff revision, a
demand for more stringent railroad
regulation and u proposition for a
law that will make the violators of
thu trust laws go to Jail Instead of
pay'ng fines at the expense of the
people who have to buy trust made
However Important the tariff is, It
Is not tho panacea for the evils of
monopoly. One brief Hue which Mr.
Hryan had placed In the national
phtform of 11100 and which ho has
repeated ucessnntly ever since, is
worth a page of argument on either
the tariff, railroad regulation or the
antitrust laws, namely: ".Monopoly
In private hands Is Indefensible and
must be destroyed."
At the same time flow Johnson's
Interview shows him to be a true
democrat. It reads like the utter
ances of a man who Is So sincerely
devoted to democratic principles that
lie will not permit himself to be
used by undemocratic forces to do-

to quote a fow lines from the In
terview which ho gavo to tho New
"No man should be chosen for
either tho presidency or tho vlco
presidency becauso he represents
some particular Idea or Interest or
mercenary- qualification. We should
havu no moro Henry Oassaway Da
vises nominated because ho hissoss
ed a barrel which he was expected to
open nnd did not; no moro men
from Maine merely because a can
didate from there was supKscd to
possess some local Influence."
Unquestionably In the next demo
cratic convention llioro will be moro
attention paid to tho nomination of
a vlco president than ever before.
I'or twolve years tho vlco presiden
tial nominees have either been n
drag on the "ticket or at least no
great help to It.

Gov. Johnson's Purpose.
It would be Impossible hero to
quote even 0110 quarter of the for
mal statement of his views which
Gov. Johnson gavo to tho New York
World. It Is enough to say that
In the main they were democratic,
but given to a newspaper which for
many years has been autl-democrntlc.
They were accompanied In the World
by n lending editorial attacking nil
possible candidates for the presiden
cy, except tlov. Johnson himself
something which must havo annoyed
so loyal a party man as he. What
he has said will help to advance tho
cause of democracy throughout the
country. The way In which It was
baldlcd and the medium which gave
lit publicity mill help neither dem
ocracy nor Oov. Johnson.

It Is not tlin.j low, In ananee, to
irlttclso the proposition. Yv It l
not too early to point out tho fact
that there Is a ten per cent tax now
Imposed by law upon all bank notes
tired as a circulating medium nnd
that this .tax Is notoriously evaded
by the hanks of tho country. It
was evaded In tho imnlc of 1S03
when thu hanks Issued cl firing
house certificates which passed from
hand to hand as money. It has been
evaded for the last four months by
the samo method. If the banks can
find n iway of dodging a ten per
cent tax, why can they not devise
a means of evading nn eight per
cent lav, This question of an emer
gency currency will not get through
cither tho senate or the house with
out a very thorough discussion con
ducted by men who havo fitted
themselves to dissect It scientifically

ties of tho progress 1io Is making
When the stato committee of Ohio
voted two to 0110 against every
proposition offered by tho Koraker
faction, It became obvious that Sen
ators Koraker and Dick wero not
goln,- to he able to control tho ma
chine In that state. Tho election of
delegates Is to bo by a direct prl.
mary vote. Hy all odds tho fairest
way. Hut this Is likely to redound
greatly to the Taft advantage. Two
prominent otllco holders In Washing
ton, tho assistant postmaster general
Hitchcock and thu commissioner of
Internal revenue, Mr. Capers, havo
Joined the Taft forces. Of course It
Is very much against all tho prin
ciples of civil sorvico reform, for
which the president so strenuously
stands, for these public otltclals to
he mnnagjug a political campaign.
If they wero working for Koraker
they might he disciplined, but as
they aro for Taft and "my policies,"
they will have applause rather than
an application of tho big stick. Mr.
Taft Is fortiinnto now, whether his
good fortune will extend after tho
nomination remains to bo proved.
