V' The resolutions committee when it went into session did not expect to be able to read the platform betore very late this evening or tomorrow. At the opening of the convention this afternoon Overstreet delivered the key note address, followed by speeches by Senators Hemenway and Beveridge. Hemenway Eulogizes Fairbanks. Senator Hemenway, after paying a high tribute to Fairbanks, said: "Some of our democratic friends .s\,. have been encouraged to a dream of democratic sjccess because of the re cent financial tlurry. but I am sure that a comparison of our so-called panic -with that of the democratic, panic will form a contrast that will lessen their courage and destroy their hopes. What a difference between the two panics! The panic of 'PS was caused by the ap plication of unwise policies that were fundamental ln their nature. The agi tation for free trade and for free silver caused general stagnation in business. The prospect of a democratic tariff paralyzed our industries. The panic did not start with Wall street. It started in the factories, on the farm, with every line of Industrial activity, because there were fundamental rea sons for a panic at that time. "It makes no difference wiiat great resources the nation may have, nor how great may be her people, there also must be wise policies. The pres ent panic primarily was a bankers' panic. It started among high finan ciers in Wall street and it has been limited to a great extent to fhe banks. "There is no question that the peo A iple are OVF rwhelmingly in favor of tariff revision. In my own judgment the tariff schedules must be revised. I believe in ioing things when we have the power to do them, and it would be a great relief to the country to know that when the tariff schedules are re vised, they will toe revised by a party that believes in preserving our home "We know that today we have aj majority in the house of representa-| tives we know the senate of the United States is composed of a mem- republican president. We know also Chat we shall have complete control of legislation from the day after the elec tion in November until March 4. 190fl, four months. This is ample time to revise the tariff, while we know that we have absolute control, and I will earnestly urge that an extra session of congress be called immediately after the election for the purpose of revising the tariff."
