Commoner’s Policy Would
Make Country Too Hot for
Copyright 1920. by W. J. Bryan.
profiteering plank will occupy a
prominent place in cur platform for
two reasons:
First, because of the Importance of
the subject itself; second, because
action by this convention has been
made more imperative by republican
Profiteering is a real evil and de
mands immediate attention.
Exploitation is going on all over the
country and grand Juries are trying to
reach tbe more notorious of the com
mercial pirates.
One clothing merchant in Omaha was
found selling for $97.50 a suit bought for
$13.10; a merchant in Lincoln was dis
covered collecting an average profit of
86 per cent on shoes.
A New York state clothing corporation
was Cued $35,000 for oollccting about 100
per cent on clothing: the head of the
Woolen company was. arrested for profi
teering in cloth: th® Gimbel brothers
have been arrested for overcharging.
The tax records at Washington are dis
closing amazing Instances of profiteering.
One hundred per cent, 500 per cent.
1,000 per cent, 2.000 per cent, and some
even 5,000 per cent—these are profits re
ported under oath.
Legislation has been strangled by
lobbyists employed by the profiteers.
The representative of a wholesale gro
cery association In New York reported
to his employer that at Albany he had
killed thirty out of thirty-one bills pro
posed for regulating trade or providing
rillef for communities
One of these bills was intended to
authorize cities and towns to establish
Think of a grocery association closing
the door to relief.
In Nebraska the lobbyists of the
middlemen strangled a bill Intended for
the restraint of profiteers.
These impudent retainers of predatory
corporations and greedy commercialists
w-ere hanging about Washington and
snapping at the heels of the trade com
Congress, instead of protecting the
public, seemed rather inclined to resent
the activities of those who tried to safe
guard the masses.
The republican convention not only
failed to make any vigorous pronounce
ment against the profiteer, but on the
contrary, attempted to divert attention
to real cause to subsidiary influence*.
It la very evident that most of the
profit er3 were present as delegates, or
were represent'd by proxies
Tbe inability of the republican party
to deal with this question effectively la
Illustrated by a story.
A man went into a clothing store and.
when tbe merchant wasn't looking, put
on a coat and ran out.
As he went out the door the merchant
caught sight of him and gave chaee,
calling to the thief to stop.
This falling, the policeman drew a re
volver and threatened shoot.
The merchant became excited and,
grabbing the policeman, said. "Policeman,
If you do shoot, shoot him in tbe pants
tbe coat belongs to me."
The republican party cat} not find any
place to shoot.
Tbe profiteers, who were not present at
Chicago, are here, but they are not so
numerous, and our party will therefore
find It easier to deal with the problem,
I do not anticipate much difficulty In
securing an explicit condemnation of
profiteering and a pledge of specific reme
dies that will prove effective.
I hare not been h!o jr> eonfer with
the other members of the committee, but
shall lay liefore them ns n hnsis for ac
tion a plank something like the follow
ing :
“Ths democratle party pledges the na
tion to rid It of the profiteer and to clow
the door against his return.
“It will endearor to eliminate all un
neeessary middlemen by the encourage
ment of organizations among producers
that will bring those who sell and those
who use nearer together.
"It will enact and enforce laws that
will effectively prevent excessive charges
by such middlemen as are necessary.
To this end It will demand legisla
tion subjecting to the penalties of the
criminal law nil corporation officers ar.d
employes who give or carry out Instruc
tions that result in extortion: It will
make it unlawful for any one engaged In
Interstate commerce t make the sale of
one article dependent upon th" pur
chase of another article, and it will re
quire such corporations to disclose to
customers the difference l>etween cost and
helling, or limit the profit that, can tie
legally charged as the rate of Intereat
Is now limited.
“It will also endeavor to create In the
several states trade commissions with
powers as ample as the federal trade
commission and to enact laws authoris
ing each local community to create, as
needed, similar commissions for the In
vestigation of local charges of profiteer
ing "
While the above would seem to pro
vide sufficient remedies, suggestions will
be welcomed from tho.?e who have given
the matter attention.

Copyright, 1920. by International News
SAN FRANCISCO, June 28.—What I
am now trying to figure about this dem
ocratic convention Is who are some of
these people around here who are run
ning for the nomination for president of
the United States?
I never see so many anonymous guys
running for anything before in my whole
life, and, some of them got the gall to
think they can be president of the United
States, I do not know.
Furthermore, I am getting very indig
nant about the matter, because I may
look at it, the president of the United
States is a serious proposition and peo
pie are entitled to know who a guy is,
and where he comes from, and what his
racket is, before they go making him
My idea of the president of the United
States is a guy who is well known to
one and all, and who has something of
a noodle on him. and while it is not al
ways possible to get such a guy. wha'
with there being only republicans and
democrats to pick him from. I am much
surprised and disgusted to come around
a political convention, and find them
talking about guys I never hear of be
fore, and who may not have enough
brains to grease a gimlet, for all I know.
Os course, if a guy is only a candidate
for vice president it docs not make any
difference one way or the other about
the brains, and nobody is ever going to
hear from him anyway, but I figure the
president is most miportant, and guys are
very wrong in going around clowning
this thing up
I am talking to my friend. Chelsea
Mcßride, and this Goofy Beers, the nut,
about this matter last night, and I am
telling them that I am going to bawl
a lot of people out around here, but
Chelsea Mcßride says to me like this:
"Nix cracking.” Chelsea says, “because,
he says. If you do such a thing you may
be spoiling some right guy's racket .
"Furthermore,” he says. "I am much
surprised to bear you talking of turning
copper at your time of life.”
“The way I look at It,” Chelsea says,
“the chances are these candidates are
being handled by some of the boys.
"The chances are,” he says, "they are
snekers who are built np by the lads
Into thinking they can be president of
the United States If they spend enough
"It Is anew dodge to me,’’ Chelsea
says, “but It looks very good, Indeed,
and.” he says, "I am only sorry I do not
think of It myself.
“In the other days,” he says, "when
I am pulling and hauling, and doing the
best I can. I build up many a sucker into
thinking he can make a dollar bill grow
into a sawbuek by giving it to me to
Invest In one thing and another. Incltid
lng mining stock, but,” he Bays, "1 never
think of this president business.
“I built up many a sucker,” Chelsea
says, "in the old days Into thinking he
can outsmart me at this and that, and
so forth, and so on. but in those days,”
he says, “nobody ever hears of the presi
dent dodge.
"In those days, “Chelsea Rays, “we
were not far enough advanced.
"We were small time operators, and,”
he say#, “It looks as if f turn square
some years too soon.
“If you let out a squawk about these
parties now,” Chelsea says, "you may tip
some of these candidates off and they
may get on to themselves and run out
on the lads, although,” he says, "the
chances are a guy who Is sucker enough
to think he can be president of the
United States Is too much of a Rucker
to get on to himself very soon, but.” he
says, “you may hurt business for the
guys who are painting signs for these
candidates, and for the hotel guys who
are renting them rooms for headquar
“Well," I say to Chelsea Mcßride. “It
ought to be stopped.” T am In favor
of a law,” I say, “to keep anonymous
guys from running for president of the

known.” I say.
“I may- know several of them.” Chelsea
says. “I see iwo guys this morning who

SAN FRANCISCO, Juno 28.—1 will bet money that when you heard the
democratic convention was going to San Francisco you said. “Well, there's
one chump play and the men that made It must have been out of their
minds. For what it will cost first and last to get this show across the con
tinent they could run a whole campaign, and money Is scarce this year.
Democratic money, especially."
But that Is where you inls'Ued. m'son.

It's like everlasting champagne with

None of this gloom stuff goes here;

I will bet that when the democratic

snappier than it would have been if
made anywhere else, anil will go 80

It la the queerest old town In America.
Just think of It for a moment: In
San Francisco people are always glad to
see you.
What do you know about that? Isn't
U a scream ? Not glad to see you for
the sake of what they can probably
gouge out of you before they let you get
your railroad ticket and dnek out, but
glad because they feel that way.
It’s the funniest thing you ever saw
In your life, but It’s true.
You can ask anybody anything here

Why, you can even ask a hotel elerk

more than once.
The second time I took along witnesses
because I knew I wouldn't be believed.
Why these people are so queer they
have some kind of weird idea that you
and they and all of us are human beings
and related and you've come to visit
your uncles and aunts and that means
them, and they're mighty glad and want
you to be.

104 Votes Looked on as Im

SAN FRANCISCO, June 28.—Demo
cratic women today hold a dominant po
sition in the national convention, ao.
cording to the women leaders.
The women have 104 votes in the con
vention and by their combined strength
may hold the control in any deadlock
which arises.
"Women really come Into their own
in politics today,” * said Mrs. Georgs
liass, chairman of ihe woman's bureau
of the democratic national convention.
"For the first time women are about
to play a really important part in the
selection of a candidate for the demo
cratic nomination.
"I am sure that when the convention
is ended that the part which the women
have played will have proved that women
are for all time a power in American
"More important than the selection of
the candidate is the drafting of a plat
form, and I am confident that women are
going to have an influence in framing
it which will have much to do with the
success of the democratic party in 1920.
"Democratic women have already
■ greed upon several planks for th? plat
form. which they will urge before the
resolutions committee, which show Just
how progressive we are.
‘‘We have agreed upon a liberal plank
for labor, which we feel the convention
must accept.
“We have also agreed upon a liberal
plank in regard to child welfare and
women in industry ”
The democratic women are preparing
to wage a stiff fight in the resolutions
committee for the adoption of a liberal
labor plank and the 104 votes of the
women will be held as a club over the
convention If the plank, providing for
acceptance of the piinciple of collective

against the nomination of William Gibb*
McAdoo, according to Lee Herdman of
Omaha, Neb., close friend of Mr. Bryan.
nerdman, today, following a conference
with Bryan, stated be was in a position
"to positively declare that Mr. Bryan
will oppose the nomination of McAdoo
to the end.”
“Mr. Bryan take* the position that Mr.
McAdoo Is really a candidate without
making any declaration?" said Herdman
"He feels that McAdoo should have
announced his position on the great Is
sues that are before the convention and
does not feel that the party can afford
to nominate a man who has not let bis
attitude be known on the problems con
fronting the party.”

and the democratic candidates it may
possibly appear a paramount question.
That the labor men are prepared to be
turned down by the democrats was ap
parent today.
They are ready for it. though they ap
pear to believe that turndown is out of
tbe question, they have learned enough
politics to appear to expect what you
know you can not get.
A talk with Matthew Woll. a leader of
the American Federation of Labor, hand
somest. Indeed, and youngest of Amer
ica's labor guides, member of the labor
delegation which walked out of the recent
Industrial congress, justifies every state
ment above as to labor's position in the
political situation.
“We think we've got tbe American peo
ple behind us." said Woll.
“That day that Gompers and the rest
of us got up in the Industrial con
gress and walked out of the room,
breukln.T up the congress, we fully ex
pected that the whole American public
would blame us for our action.
“To our surprise we have discovered
through the intervening months that the
American publie supported us.
“We have learned to place our trust
in the mine run of Americans."
That the republicans disappointed the
labor leaders at Chicago is a statement
that Woll does not hesitate to make.
“We have come to San Francisco,” he
declared, “to ask that the democrats go
farther than the republicans to answer
our proposals.”
“The Issue in the United States today
is that between the man and the dollar.
“The republican party at the Chicago
convention announced itself for the dol
lar and for vested interest in capital.
“We have come to San Francisco to
ask the democrats to declare themselves
in favor of the man against the dollar.
"We have tried to put into fifteen
points the Ideas which we have in mind.
"If democrats refuse to follow our
suggestions then we'll know that the two
leading parties are against us.”
The writer asked Woll what labor
would do if the democrats followed the
republican lead.
“History has shown,” he said, ‘‘that
swings toward extreme reaction, such as
we are now experiencing in the United
Stares, are always followed by periods
of radicalism
"It is difficult to predict what will
follow if both the democratic and the
republican parties declare themselves
against the Interests of organized labor;
but the time may come when we shall
find tt necessary to seek some other
“To say the least, if the democrats go
•wrong the labor party will be partly
split betw-een the republicans and the
“And some of ns may vote for that
man in Jail, Eugene V. Debs.”
"There must be a party in the United
States of some kind that will represent
the ideas and needs of the people who
work and will respond to their requests
and necessities."

The substitution of Senator Robinson
of Arkansas for Colby as permanent
chairman of the convention was agreed
upon by administration leaders after
President Wilson had expressed a de

be allowed to act as the administration
floor leader in the pending league battle,
it was stated.
Supporters of tbe president declare
they are confident that Colby, whose
foren.-io skill has carried him through
many a hot political conflict, will prove

today, and also on the convention floor. ;U, : -
