Tho message- which you hne for
mally convoyed brings to mo a reali
zation of responsibility which Is not
underestimated. It Is a ?upr-m.' t
to Interpret the covenant of a Kreat
political party, and nctlvltles'of which
are 50 woven into the history of Oils
republic, and a very sacred and
solemn undertaking to utter 'bo faith
and aspirations of tho many millions
who adhere to that party. The party
platform has charted the way, yet,
somehow, we havo come to expect
that interpretation which voice- the
faith of nominees who m ist assume

tho very beginning. 1 believe in party
sponsorship in government I believe
in party government as distinguished
from personal government. Individual,
dictatorial, autocratic or what not, In
a citizenship of more than i hundred
millions It is Impossible to reach
agreement upon all questions:. Parties
aro formed by those who reach a
concensus of opinion It was the in
tent of tho founding father to give
to this republic a dependable and en
during popular government, represen
tative in form, and it was designed j
to make political parties not only the'
preserving sponsors out also the ef
fective agenc.e.s through which hopes
and aspirations and convictions and
conscience may be translated Into

R1DU E IRMAAlENl .
I can hear In the call of conscience
an Insistent voice, for the largely re
duced aimnmenta throughout the
world, with attending reduction of
burdens upon peaee loving humanity,
w wish to give of American influence
and ixample we must ffvc "l Ameri
can leadership to that invaluable ac
complishment. I can fpeak unresarvedlV of the Am
erican aspiration and the Republican
committal for en association of na
tions, co-operating In Sublime accord,
to attain und preserve peace through
Justice rather than torc-e, 0 t.-r-mlncd
to add to security through in
ternational laW, so clarified that no
misconstruction Cfffl -he pCfaSlble with
out ult routing world honor.
LdSAG i I. t i I N INT.
This republic can never be unmind
ful of its pcweir, and must never for
get the forces of Us example. Posses
sor Of might that admits no fear, Am
nm must 'it-md foremost for the
right. If the mistaken voice of Amer
Eo i spoke n In unheeding hasje, led Iiu
ropc, in the hour of deepest anxiety,
into a military alliance which men
aces and threatens all freedom, in
stead of adding to thou Security, then
must speak tho truth for America
and express our hope for the frater
nised conscience- of nations.
It will avail nothing to discuss in
detail the league covenant, which was
conceived lor woild super-government,
negotiated In misunderstanding,
:.nl Intolerantly urged and demanded
by its administration senators, who rt-sisi.-.l
every i-ffort to tcifegnard Amer
ica ami who finally rejected when
such safeguards were inserted. It' tr.e
supreme blunder has leit European re
lationships Inextricably Interwoven In
the league compact, our sympathy for
Kurope oi.lv magnifies our own good
fortune in resisting involvement, it is
better to be tho fiee and disinterested
agent of international Justice and ad
vancing civilisation, wltn the ce-venant
of conscience, tl...n be shackled by a
written compact whleb surrenders our
freedoin of action and giv es j h. mill
. i r illlancc the right to piOiatum Am
erica's duty to the world. No surren
der of rlgnts lo u world council or its
military alliance, no assumed manda
tory however appealing, ever shall
summon the sons of tills republic to
war. Their supreme sacrifice .shall
only bo asked for America and Its call
of honor. There Is a Sanctity In that
light we vvlil not delcguto.
WORLD ONI LDENCE.
When the compact was holng writ
ten, I do not know whether Kurope
U sited or ambition Insistently bestow
ed. It was so good to rejoice in tho
v orld confidence in our unselfish
ness that 1 can bellee our evident
oisiiiteresiedness Inspired Europe s
.vish for our association, quite as much
as tho aeifish thought of enlisting Am
erican power and resources Ours Is
ar. outstanding. Influential example to
the world, whether we cloak It in
spoken modesty or magnify It in exal
:miioh v.v want to help; we mean to
help; but w bold to our own Inter
pretation of the American conscience
as the very soul cf our nationality.
Disposed as we arc, the way is very
sin pie. Let ihe- fallaie attending as
sumption, obstinacy, impracticability
; nd delay be recognized, and lot us
find the big. practical, unselfish way
to do our part, neither covetous he
cause of ambition nor heslte.nt
through fear, but ready to serve our-
' s. huinanltv and God. With a
senate advising as tho constitution
contemplates, I would hopefully an-
tl'Oach the nations of Europe and of
hi earth, propoclng that understand-,
ns: which makes us a willing parrlcl
MUSt In the consecration of nations to '
i new relationship, to commit the!
i. oral forces of the world,- America

If men call frr more specific de-1

Here Is the transcending task it con-!
cerns our common weal at home and I
111 decide our future eminence in1
ibe world. More than these, this re
public, under constitutional liberties,
has given to mankind the most fortu
nate conditions for human activity and
Attainment the world has ever noted,
and we arc today the world's reserve i

through security, and maintained

HUMANITY IS RESTIVE,
It Is folly to close our eyen to out-!
standing fucts. Humanity Is restive,
much of the world is In i evolution,
the agents of discord and destruction
have wrought their tragedy In pathetic
Russia, have lighted their torches
among other peoples, and hope- to pee
America as a part of the great red
Ours is tho templo of liberty. Obey
the law and It Is ours to call the
Sons of Opportunty to Hs defense.
America must not only save herself
but ours must be tho appealing voice
to aober the world
More' than all else the present day
world needs understanding. There
can bo no peaco save through com
posed differences, and the submission
of tho Individual to tho will and weal
of the many. Any other plan means
anarchy and its rulo of force
It must be understood that loll alone
makes fore accomplishment and ad
vancement and righteous possession Is
tho reward of toll, and Its Incentive
There is no progress except In the
stimulus of competition. When com
petition natural, fair. Impelling com
petition Is supressed whether by law
compact or conspiracy, we halt the
march of progress, silence the voice
of aspiration, and paralyze the will for
achievement. These are but common
se nse- truths of human drv elopmenta
CHIEF TROUBLE TODAY
Tho chief trouble todav i3 that the
world war wrought the destruction of
healthful competition, left our store
houses empty and there Is a minimum
production when our need is maxi
mum. Maximum not minimum Is the
eial! of America. It is not a new story
because war never falls to leave de
pleted store houses and always im
pairs the efficiency of production. War
nlso establishes its higher standards
for wages, nnd they abide, I wish
the hlgh'-r wage to abide, on ono ex
plicit condition that the wage earner
will give full return for the wages
1 1 received. It Is the best assurance we
'can have for a reduced cost of living
Mark you. 1 am ready lo acclaim the
I highest standard of pay) but i would
! be blind to tho responsibilities that
mark this fateful hour if I did not
caution the wage earners of America
thai mounting wages and decreased
production an lead only to Industrial
and economical ruin
I want, somehow, to appeal to the
sons and daughters of the republic,
to every producer to Join hands and
ibrnln in production, morn production,
honest production, patriotic produc-j
tion. becaUSt patriotic production is no
less a defense of our best civilization
than that of armed Toro' Profiteer-.
Ing Is a crime of commission, under!
production is a crime of ommlwilon.'
We must work our most and l est, els
the destruction reaction will come. We.
nni9t stabilise and strive for normalcy,
else the Inevitable reaction will bringi
In Its train sufferings disappointments
nnd reversals. Wo want to forestall
Btpcb reaction, we want to hold all
advanced ground, and fortify it with
general good fortune
CONtfTiIOT is his ASTl R
Lflt us return for a moment Ho tho
necessity for understanding, particu
larly that understanding which con
cerns ourselves at home. I decline to
recognise any conflict of Interest
among the participants In Industry
Th destruction of ono Is the ruin dfl
the other the suspicion or rebellion of
one unavoidably involves the other. In
I ConfllCI l" disaster in understanding.,
thcro Is understanding. ThenrTs no
i issue relating to ihe foundation on
iv.b'.ch Industry Is bj'.lded. because
: Industry Is bigger than any element In
li modern making Rut the Insistent
call Is for labor, management and
capital to reach understanding
I The human element comes first, and!
II want the employers In Industry to
understand the aspirations, the con-j
. v lotions, the yenrnlngs of Ihe millions
! of American wage e arners, and I wantl
the wage earners to understand the1
'problems, the anxieties, the obligations i
of management nnd capital and all ofi
I them must understand their "elation
ship to the people and their obligation
! to the republic. Out of this under
standing will come the unnnlmous
eommittal to economic Justice and In
'economic Justice lies that social Justice,
which Is the highest essential to hu-,
' I am speaking ns one who has
counted the contents of the pay envoi-,
ope from Ihe viewpoint of the earner,
as well as the employer. No one pre-;
' tenels to den the Inequalities which
are manifest-d in modern Industrial
'life. They are bss In fact than were

IthouKh's on the necessity ef progn-s-j

' suffer the experiment which means
chaos for our day to re-establiah God's
(plan for the groat tomorrow.
Speaking our sympathies, uttering
'the conscience of all the people, mind-,
ful of our right to dwell amid the good',
fortunes of national, conscience lm-i
polled advancement, we hold thr mnj-
i-sty of righteous government with lib-1
i orty under the law to be our avoid-1
ance of chsos, and we call upon every
'citizen of the republic to hold fast to i
I that which made us w-hat we are. and I
wo will have orderly government safe
guard th" onward march to all we j
ought to be
MORN ICING TENDENCY
The menacing tendency of the pies-
lent day Is not chargeable wholly to I
tho unsettled and fevereil conditions
iV-scd by the war Tho manlfost
weakness In popular geivernnient lies
in thi- temptation lo appeal to group-1
j ed citizenship for political advantage, j
There Is no greater peril. The constl-l
tution contemplates no class nnd rec
ognises no group. It broadly Includes
all the people, with Specific recognition
for none, and the highest consecration
we can make today Is a committal of
I ihe Republican partv to that saving
constitutionalism which oontemnlat.-s
all America as one people, and holds
Just government free from Influonco
on tho one hand and unmoved by In
timidation on the. other
It would be the blindness of folly
to ignore ihc activities !n our country
which ure aimed to destroy our econ
omic system and to commit us to col
ossai Iragedj which ha. both destroyed!
all freedom and made Itussla Impo
tent. This movement is not to he
halted In throttlo.l liberties. V o muft
not abridge the freedom of speech, the
freedom of press, or the freedom of
assembly, because there is no promise
In repression These liberties aro as
sacred us iho freedom of riigious b
llef, as Imlolaole as the rlKbts of life
and the pursuit of happiness We do
hold to the right to crush sedition,
to stille a menacing contempt for law
to stamp out a peril io tho safety of
the repuldb or its people, when emer-
gency calls, because security and tho
majesty of the law are tho first essen
tia Ik, of llbertv. Ho who threatens
destruction of the government by force
or flaunts his contempt for lawful au
thority, ceases to be a loyal citizen
and forfeits his rights to tho freedom
of the republic
MENACE OF REUS
Let it bo said to all of America that
our plan of populor government con
templates SUCh orderly changes as the
crystallr.ed Intelligence of tbe majori
ty of our people think best. J hero can
be no modification of this underlying
rule but no majority shall abridge thol
righls of a minority. Men have al
right to question ouv system In fullest
freedom, but thev must always re
member that the rights of freedom
impose tho obligations which maint
ain it 'ur policy is not of repression,
i but we make appeal today to Ameri
can Intelligence and patriotism when1
.tho republic is menaced from within, I
Just as we trusted American patriotism!
when our rights wore threatened from!
i Wo call on all America for readiness
so that we may proceed deliberately to
I the readjustment which concerns all!
jthc people Our party platform fairly
expresses the consclonco of Republl
Cans on Industrial relations. No party)
is indifferent to the welfaro of the
t To us his good fortune is of deepest
. concern, and we seek to make that
j good fortune permanent We do not
iopposo but approve collective bargain
ing, because that is an outstanding
right, but" we are unalterably Insist
ent that Its cxerclso must not destroy
tho equally sacred right of the In
dividual, in his necessary pursuit of
livelihood. Any American has the
right to quit his employment, so has
every American the right to seek em
ployment Tho group must not en
danger the individual and we must
discourage groups proving upon onu
another, and nono shall be allowed to
forget that government's obligations
are alike to all the people.
I hopo we may do more than mere
ly dlscourae the losses and suffering
attending Industrial conflict. Tbe
strike against the government Is prop
erly denied, for government serv-e
Involves none of tho elements of prof
It which relates to competitive enter
prise There la progress in the es-
tablishment of official revealment of

conflict, so that unerring public senll
I ment may speed the adjustment, bu;
I hope lor that concord of purpoa
rot forced but inspired by the com
I monwealth, which will kIvo a regu
l.'itod public service tho fullest guar
anty of continuity I am thinking of
the railroads In modern life t hey
are the very base of n!l our ncdvltloa
and interchanges. For public protec
tion we have enacted laws providing
for a regulation of the charge for
I c r v ice, a limitation on the capital In
vested and a limitation on capital s
earnings. There remains only com-
petition of service, on which to base j
iur hopes for nn i-fficloncy and ex-!
pnnslon which meet our modern re
quirements. The railway workmen;
ought to bo the best paid and know
Iho best working conditions in tho'
world. Theirs Is an exceptional re
sponsibility. They are not only es
sential to the life nnd health and all
productive activities of the people,'
but they nre directly responsible for,
tho safety of tiavellng millions. Tho,
government which has assumed so
much authority for the public good i
might well stamp railway employ-1
ment with the sanclty of public serv-1
Ice nnd guarantee the railway em
ployes that Justice which voices th
American conception of righteousness,
on the one hand, and assure con
tinuity of service on the other.
It ir, Y QUESTION
The Importance of the railway re-;
habituation is so obviUS tb;,r rofor
ence seems uncalled for. We are so
confident that much of th prosi-nt-day
Insufficiency and inefficiency of
transporioti' n are dUG to the wither-I
lng hand 6T government operation
that we emphasize' anew our opposi
tion to government, we want to ex
pedite the reparation, and make suro
the mistake is not repeated
It is little use to recite the s?ory of I
development, exploitation, goVcrnmeht-1
experiment and Its neglect, govern-
ment operation and Its failures, Tho
Inadequacy of trackage and terminal J
facilities, the- insufficiency of equip-1
ment and the inefficiency of opera-'
tion all bear the blighting stamp of j
governmental incapacity during fed
oral operation The work of rehab
ilitation under the restoration of pri
vate ownership deserves our best en-'
couragement lillllons are reeded In I
pew ftirulpment, not alone to me et
the growing demand for service, but
to restore the extraordinary doprecla-l
tion dm to the strained rervice of
war With restricted earnings an I
with speculative profits removed, rail
way activities have come to the
realm of conservative and construc
tive service, and the government
which inpalred must play Its part in 1
restoration. Manifestly the returns!
must be so gauged that ncoesaary
capital may be enlisted, and we must
foster as well as restrain.
We have no more pressing prob
lem. A state of Inadequate tmnspor-,
tation facilities, mainly chargeable to j
the failure of governmental experi
ment, Is losing millions to agricul
ture. It is hindering industry, it Is i
menacing the American people with
n fuel shortage little less than a peril.
It emphasises the present-day prob-1
lem-anel suggests tho" spirit of en-'
couragement nn assistance whjcli ;
commits all America to relieve such ,
The compenation amid attending;
anxieties Is our new and needed real -
lzatlon of the vital part transporta-
tion plays in tho complexities of mod- j
ern llf? We arc not to think of rails!
alone, but highways from farm to
market, from railway to farm, nr
terles of life blood to present day life '
the quickened ways to communication
and exchange, the nnswei of our peo- !
.b to tho motor age We believe In 1
generous federal co-operation In con
structlon, linked with assurances of i
maintenance that will put an end to i
criminal waste of public funds on the i
on.- hand mu givo guaranty of up-'
ktpt highways on the other.
Water transportation Is inseparably!
unaea wim aaequacy oi lacintios, and
wo favor American mlnenco on the
seas tne practical development of In
land waterways,; the upbuilding nnd
co-ordination of all to make them

commerce. I like that recommittal to
thoughts of America first wheih
pledges the Panama canal, an Amerl
i can cratlon, to tho free use of Amor
lean shipping. It will add to the
t OST OF LIVING
' m cannot speak of Industry and
commerce, and the transportation on
which they are dependent without an
hone-st ibouht of tbe abnormal cost
of living and the problems in its
wake. It is easy to inveigh, but that
aval's nothing. And It is far too seri
ous to dismiss with flaming but futllo
J?ight years ago, in times of peace,
the Democratic party made It an is
sue, and when clothed with power
that party came near to Us accom
plishment by destroying ihe people's
iicity to buy. But that was aj
cure worse than the aliment. It is J
I isy to understand tho real causes,
ifter which the patient must help to
effect his own cure.
Gross expansion of currency and
credit have depreciated the dollar Just
as expansion and inflation has dis
credited the coins of th world. We
Inflated In hasi", we must deflate in
deliberation o debased tho dollar!
In reckless finance, wc must restor. In
hone-sty. Deflation oh the one hand I
and restoration of the 100-pcr centl
dollar on tho other ought to have bo-
gun on the day after iho armistice,'
but plans were lacking or courago
failed The unpreparedness for peace
was little less costly than unpreparcd
nocs for war
METHOD OF ATTACK.
Wo can promise no ono remedy I
which will cure an 111 of such wide
proportions, but wo do pledge that;
earnest and consistent attack which
the party platform (ovenants. We
will attempt intelligent and courag
eous deflation and strike at govern
ment borrowing which enlarges the
evil, and wc will attack high cost of
government with every energy and:
facility which ailend Republican cap-'
aclty Wo promise that relief which'
will attend tho halting of waste and
extravagance and tho renewal of thej
practice of public economy, not alono'
because It will relieve tax burdens,'
but because It will be an example to J
stimulate thrift and economy in pri
vate life. '
I have already alluded to the ne
I eesslt- for tho fullness of production,
and we need the fullness of service
which attends the exchange of pro
ducts. Let us speak the Irrefutable
truth, high wages and reduced cost;
of living are in utter contradiction un
less wo have the height of efficiency
for wages received.
In all slncorltv we promise the pre
vention of unreasonable profits. we
challenge profiteering with all the
moral force and the legal powers of
government and people, but It Is fair,
aye. It Is timely, to give reminder
that law Is not the solo correctlvo of
our economic Ills
Let u call to all ths people for
thrift and economy, for denial and
, sacrifice If need be for B nationwide

VPPEAL To FARMERS,
The Republican paity was founded
by farmers, with the sensitive con
science born of their freedom and
their simple lives These founders
sprang from the fan. is of the then

our very existence, and it has ever

formance to protect and promote that
New conditions, which attend amaz

forward looking prorram The Amer
ican farmer had a hundred mm twen

and heard the cry of the world for'

that fnrmers should not only bi per

arduous toil Lot us facilitate co-operation
to insure against the risks at

such association and co-operation

RICH IX RESOI RGE.
The federal government's relation
I to reclamation and development is too
Important to admit of ample dl8CUb-
sion today. Alaska, alone Is rich lu I
resources beyond all Imagination and1

Those things 1 ian only mention.
Within becoming limits one can not
j say more Indeed, for the present
many questions of vast lmp,.,rt nee
must be hastily passed, reson ing a
fuller discussion io suitable occasion
as the campaign advances,
BUDGET SYSTl M.
I believe the budget, system will ef
fect a necessary, helpful reformation,
and reveal business methods o gov - '
I believe federal departments i
3hould be made more businesslike
and send back to productive effort I
thousands of federal employ e',, v. ho

FOR SMALL ARMY.
I believe in u small army, but tho
best In tho world, with a mindfulness
fcr preparedness which will avoid the
unutterable cost of our previous ne
glect. I believe In our eminence In trade
abroad, which the government should
uid In expanding, both In revealing
markets and speeding cargoes.
I bellevo In establishing standards
for Immigration which am concerned
With the future citizenship of tho re
public, not with mere manpower in

I believe that every man who dons
the garb of merlcan citizenship and'
w alks in the light of American oppor-I
tunlty. must become American In
heart and soul.
I beilev,-. In holding fast to every j
forward step In unshackling child la

RIGHTS OP NEGROES.
I I bellevo the negro citizens of Am
erica should be guaranteed the enjoy
ment of all their rights, thnt they have
turned the full measure of cltbu-n-
"hip bestowed, that their sacrifices in
j blood on the battlefields of the ie
i public have entitled them to all of
freedom and opportunity, all of sym
pathy and aid, that the American splr
il of fairness an.l Justice demand?.
I bellevo thero Is an easy and open
;patii to righteous relationship wltn
.Mexico 1 1 has scorned to rue that
our undeveloped, uncertain anel Infnm
.policy has made um a culpable party
to tho governmental misfortunes in
I that land nui relations ought to be
both friendly and sympathetic; we
I would like r,. acclaim a stable govern

plain and neighborly understanding
I merely an understanding about res
jpoctlng our borders, about protecting
the lives nnd possessions of American'
Citizens lawfully within the Mexican1
dominions There must bo that un-'
derstandlng else ther can be no reo

ii'ust be faithfully kepi.
Manv of these declarations deserve
a fuller expression, with some BUggeS
1101 S of plans to emphasize the faith 1
I UCh expression will follow In due!
time. I promise you.
LAW ENFORCE!!! M
I believe In law enforcement. Ifl
elected I mean to be a constitutional
president, and it is Impossible to lg
nore the constitution, unthinkable to
, evade the law, when our every com
mittal is to orderly government Peo
ple ever Will dhler abom. the wisdom
Of the enactment of law there Is dl
I vided oplmon respecting the ISth
i amendme nt and the laws enacted to
make It operative but thcie can be
no difference of opinion about honest
law onion , m..-nl
I Neither government nor purtv can
(afford to cheat the American people.!
The laws of congress miM harmonize!
I with tho constitution, clso they soon i
I are adjudged to be void; congress en-
jocts the laws, and the executive,
branch of government Is charged with!
enforcem- ni We can not nullify be- :
iiius- Of divided opinion, v- can no' '
jeopardize orderly government w.'. h
contempt for law nfoivement. Modlfl
cation or repeal is the right of s free''
people, whenever the deliberate audi
intelligent public sentiment commands1
but perversion and evasion mark the
paths to the failure of government i
Though not In a p.-iriisan sense, j
must speak of the services of tho men
