Says the Republican Platform Is Bold and Consistent. LONDON TIMES' CO.ADCENT. Speaking to the living; in ' the presence of the dead: We have tears for them and admira tion for the great . things they . have accom plished, but the glory of our. race, of our civil ization. ; Is that each . generation . works out Its own salvation and ; marches - ( forward to suc cess and the , betterment of . the condition, of mankind; | and, | as they drop Into .their grave, their ' successors move on to. the stage of ac tion, holding fast all -that the past has given and going; in turn a generation's march further on for the benefit of. the race and of civiliza tion. ¦ ~~~-:%m&m ' I am done. I have already detained you longer than I expected. In conclusion, let me again say that we are proud of the past, wo are proud of the future. The twentieth cen tury Is to bring" more of good or evil to the human race than the . nineteenth century brought.* Under what party . banner .will you enlist? Under that of the anti-protectionists? Under that of the people who sit still or tear down? Or will you take service with the party ft Lincoln and Grant and Garfleld and Harri "on and McKInley and Roosevelt' and help us macrho" to victory? UNDER WHICH BANNER? It you approve of them, If you approve of the Republican policies, you are short-sighted if you refuse a working majority in the House of Representatives, because you cannot keep a Republican House without it., . y Do you like the Senate of the X'nited States? It Is a condition that cannot be changed in November. It could be changed at the end of four yfar», electing a third every two years. You like the electoral college of the great popular party, 3SC strogr.tcomlng with the war rants of attorney from the people to cast their votes for your. candidates. What Is the next best thing? You>Jlke Theodore Roosevelt? Yes. Stronger than his party, he' will be triumphantly elected. Now, then, you know under our form of government the party In power Is held respon sible. The function of the minority is to put It on good behavior by being ever ready to ap peal to the ptople. l^et me tell you something. If our government has a fault It Is that after an election one party is sometimes placed In power with . only one leg. It may have the Senate: it may have the Presidency; It may have the House. It goes along on crutches. Yet you want to hold it responsible for public sentiment. If I had the power I would so change our constitution that at every quadrl entilnl election the party that received the popular approval should go fully Into power and let thp public have a government according to the sentiment expressed at the ' ballot box. But we have not got it arranged quite that wey. A few wordt more and I will conclude. Our Government is for the people. It Is divided Into co-ordln»te branches — the Judges of the United States courts, who hold office for life, or during good behavior; the executive; the Congress, which consists of two co-ordinate branches, the Hou?e and the Senate, great legislative bodies— they could not be otherwise. born as they are of 80.0(i0,000 people who are competent of self-government. All must obey under The'odore Roosevelt as the national representative of law. He is and will continue to b?, without favor or affec tion, the reoresentatlve of law, supreme and universal In our borders. Oh, but outrageous things are done by the employer when he oppresses the laborer, and outrageous things are done by some laborers when they go on a strike. Yes, outrageous thliiffB are done In some of our best governed churches and among those who do not belong to any church. Once. In a while a citizen com mits larceny. Once in a while a man commits arson. Yes, there Is law-breaklnic and dis order. Law-breakfnR in the formation of trusts: law-bi caking at times in the organiza tion of labor whe.n it goes on strike. The great body of the people that own the wealth arc not for tbe trusts, and the sreat body of labor — honest men who live by the sweat of their faces— are not for law-breaklng in the strikes. The law— the sheet anchor of civili zation — Is atronc- enough to pull down the strongest; strong enough to curb the wicked and vicious; strong enough, like the grace of God, to throw Its arms about the weakest and the poorest and bring him under Its protection. PRESIDENT REPRESENTS LAW. how the profits should be divided. If the em ploye doesn't get as much as he thinks he ought to get after arbitration is tried he strikes — a quarrel .about something: the divi sion of something;. Well, then. It Is abso lutely necessary to have a strike that there enould be profit. Great God! How many strikes were there under Cleveland, when the Democrats were running things? When money became scarce the profits were scarce. There Is the whole story. ¦ PARTY CHIEFTAINS WHO ARE PROMINENT IN THE REPUBLI CAN CONVENTION. As Governor Pardee will visit the President at Oyeter Bay, or some other place on the map. as one of the com mittee on notification his absence from California will be. prolonged. The ab sence of the Governor for a consider able time will enable Alden Anderson, the acting Governor, to become familiar with many of the dips, spurs and angles of the executive office, which knowledge may be very useful to him in the years to come. The event which extends the furlough of Governor Pardee may shorten the absence of Mose Gunst and bring the latter home in time to attend the ratification meeting. It is noted that Henry I. Kowalsky, M. A. Gunst. Abe Ruef and J. Steppacher are all away at the same time. D. M. Delmas, who has been invited to make an address placing Hearst in nomination for President, Is at work preparing his speech. If the length of the speech shall be measured by the period of time in its preparation the convention may prepare for two hours with Delmas. DEL3IAS IS BUSV. The Republicans of San Francisco will not only commend the work of the national convention at the Alhain bra on the evening of July 6. but on that occasion will welcome the return-, ing delegates. The committee proposes to give George A. Knight opportunity to make the leading speech of the even ing. The plan of introducing quite a number of well-known Republican speakers and limiting each orator to a ten-minute speech meets with favor. The Democratic National Convention will assemble at St. Louis on the semi centennial anniversary of. the Republi can party. Perhaps the significance of the anniversary was not taken into ac count when the Democratic National Committee designated that time, but, nevertheless, the Democrats will meet on that historic day. The California delegation to the St. Louis convention will leave San Francisco next Tuesday. At Los Angeles arrangements have already been made for a great ban quet at Hazzard's Pavilion. The tables will be spread to accommodate 1000 guests. The number of acceptances registered indicates that the demand for places, will exceed the pavilion space. LOS ANGELES IN LINE. July 6 is the fiftieth anniversary of the birth of the Republican party, and the event will be commemorated throughout the country, from the At lantic to the Pacific and from the lakes to the gulf. METGALF MAY SUCCEED MOODY "Word comes that the supporters of Lukens intend to put up a strong fight against the proposition to appoint. The committee Is required to meet and is sue its call for primaries not later than June 29. The convention will probably meet in' Oakland on August 23. At the Alhambra Theater Wednesday e\-enlng, July 6, the Republicans of San Francisco will ratify the nominations of the Chicago convention. The meet ing will be held under the joint aus pices of the State Central Committee and the California League of Republi can Clubs. Senator E. I. "Wolfe, Henry C. Dibble and Thoma9 Rickard repre sent the executive committee of the league and Senator 'E. F. Woodward, James K. Wilson and Frank Schmitz represent the Republican State Central Committee. It seems that the good will which the committee entertains for Mr. Metcalf extends likewise to Senator Knowland, and therefore it is said tnat the latter will gain a decided advantage over Lukens in the appointing 'process!" The members of the committee are W. H. Chickering, Frank Barret, J. M. Stow, George D. Metcalf, John Birmingham, E. E. Johnson, Morris Flynn, Dr. C. L. Tlsdale. W. L. Crooks, "W. G. Henshaw, H. F. Stahl, C. L. Crellln, R. . W. Church, Everett J. Brown and J. H. W. Riley. There will be. thirty-five delegates outside the incorporated cities of Oak land, • Alameda, Berkeley and Vallejo. The politicians figure that these thirty five will vote to nominate Senator Knowland. Alameda is conceded to Knowland, hence it is figured that he will easily capture at the outset 44 of the 94 delegates in the convention. . AGAINST APPOINTMENTS. . The fight is on- in the Republican camp, of the Third Congressional Dis trict. The leading aspirants to succeed Victor H. Metcalf in Congress are State Senators Joseph R. Knowland of Alameda and G. K. Lukens of Oakland. There is] Quite a commotion over the announcement that the Third Con gressional District Republican Com mittee proposes to appoint delegates to the Congressional nominating conven tion from- the localities In which the provisions of the primary election law are not mandatory or obligatory. In these localities delegates were appoint ed to the recent State Convention at Sacramento, hence it is argued that such proceeding is not rough or arbi trary, i Knowland and Lukens Are Chief Aspirants in Re publican Competition— Plans for Ratification. CONGRESSIONAL BATTLE NOW WAGES IN METCALPS DISTRICT from our great leader and our great President there was a young, active, henegt, courageous man standing by the bedside who under the constitution was his successor, and he there said, "Lam to be President, to carry out the policies of the Republican party, and I will Journey In the footsteps of, William McKinley and of Abraham Lincoln." To your coming President great things have happened in the last three years. In the Old World a single great policy In a genera tion is the exception. We have. more than that In our progressive country- I have given you the great achievements under McKInley. Un der his worthy great successor we have had the consummation of the freedom to Cuba wrought out by superior statesmen. Impe rialism, talked about under McKlnley, has dis appeared with crowing civil government and peace in the Philippines. Aye it, has disap peared from the face of the earth. Did I say from the face of the earth? I will stick to it because the doctrinaire here and the doc trinaire there, whether In New York or whether in Boston draws his toga about him. saying. ••I am wiser than thou," and fltill after this great question is settled by the conscience and the intelligence of all the people, cries "Wolf, wolf." DISCUSSES PHILIPPINES Well, under the constitution of the United States he has a right to. .» Let them ask what is going to become r>f the Philippines; At least we have peace; at least we have growing civil government, and as our 80,000,000 In this twentieth century shall Increase to 250,000,000. as we shall go on with production and com merce, in the fullness of time that territory will be useful to the United States, whereas in the meantime we will be like a benediction to them. The United States ia great in production and wealth — how great Is our wealth? In 1ST»O f300 In round numbers was the per capita wealth. In 1H00 $1235 was the per capita wealth. In 1S«O the wealth was measured by sixteen billion dollars, in 1900 nln*ty-four billions now a hundred billions. Great Britain has only an aggregate of wealth of sixty bil lions, and she has been living and gathering It for the last five hundred years, yet In a generation we sprang from sixteen to one hundred billions. The world's wealth is four hundred billions of dollars. The United States has one-fourth of It. Hut our frlendu the enemy, some of them little politicians, vex the air crying "Trusts, trusts." Oh, they come out strong with good lungs as trust busters. Since 1830 have they ever done any busting? Oh, no. There is no Jericho now, and if there was it would never happen again that people would march about the walls blowing ramshorns s»ven times until the walls fell down. That Is what the Democrats are trying to do. Trusts? Yes. Great combinations of capital against public policy? Yes. But the Republican party, always true to the people and its traditions, made haste to provide under the constitution legislation that would- prohibit these com binations. . , The do-something party! It slept under Cleveland. McKInley had the war with Spain and the restoration of prosperity, but that young enthusiastic, true man took an oath to see' to it that the laws were executed and has executed the law. And in his opinion trusts are unlawful and should be dissolved. That Is the difference between the Democrats and Republicans. One bursts by wind, the other by law. NO COUNTRY SO RICH There is no country on earth that has so much wealth as ours. Why. Interest In cheaper and cheapening until the credit of the United States to-day commands money at a premium at 2 per cent, which Is 1 per cent lower than any other nation on earth can com mand It. . Foreign combinations? Tes. But - all ¦ the while these great wealth seeking individuals, desiring favorable investments month by month and year by year, enterprising citizens desiring gain, found additional industries. Take the cen sus of 1000. The figures are correctly tabu lated and made accordng to the facts and the census of 1900 shows that from the establish ments of the so-called trtsts in. the United States only 14 per cent of the factory product came, whereas 86 per cent of the factory prod uct came from their competitors— individuals and small ownerships'. And It is bound to bo that way, if you will stop and think. ¦ There are eighty millions of our people. ! If some man conceives the. Idea i that when • he dies wisdom wlil have departed and • that he can corner the air and • the water and the sunlight he wilt find eighty millions of people who make our civilization that will not only make a : law and ¦ put it into force, but by competition and enterprise will' swear that the admitted- declaration of the enemy is a false hood. Can you prove It? Yes.- Justa minute. In the last two years, the wind and the. water that cam* from overcapitalization hi forming the so-called trusts ] have been squeezed— and there are. people who make the -."mouth bets'." about the price of water companies and:com panies tha* have gas . on . top ; of the water,' made. by printing press certificates. Oh, they stand around and say: -• '• "There is the. most extraordinary shrinkage in values that was ever known." "How much?" . ' "Oh, a good many hundreds of millions; the Wall Street Journal eays over a billion, six hundred mlllldns." : ¦ r ¦ .-¦ And yet every dollar, of property, every par ticle of property that was represented by this overcapitalization two ¦ years - ago In yet with us. Now, all the fools that bet it to go down and th-> fools that bet it to go up can fight it out. It 'doesn't make one particle of difference to the eighty millions of people who live by the sweat of their faces and do a legitimate business. • - COMPETITION ALWAYS. Oh. gentlemen, the law, public' opinion, public sentiment, the desire for good Invest ments — dollar for dollar- In ¦ the.-factory .where a dollar costs one hundred, cents — goes Into competition against' the; factory that cost a hundred cents and Is ' burdened . with another hundred cents common and another hundred cents gas »nd another hundred cents moon ehlne.'. Work it out. , It is all right. : "Oh, but,", saya our enemy, "my God, look at the strikes you are having in this country." This is their strong suit— strikes, strikes'. Now. what Is a strike?.- The strike is an effort by the employer and the employe to agre* Imported anarchy struck ' down our great President when partisan strife had almost ceased. The world paused in wonder and In indignation — not in fear, because as life went But we do not mind It. We move on. Why, gentlemen, why multiply words about ancient or decent conditions? Take the country under the administration of Grover Cleveland and compare It with the country under the admin istration of William McKInley and under Theo dore Roosevelt. If a. man will dwell In com parison for a moment and make a fair com parison. If he would not Indorse the policies of the Republican party he would not believe one though he were, raised from the dead McKInley, Roosevelt: the Dinghy tariff, that restored to u» economic prosperity; the gold standard that . settled for all time the matter of eound money; the short, triumphant ¦war with Spain; the Philippines and Porto Rico coming under our flag, and freedom to Cuba is a record that will stand In the futura second only to the record made by George Washing-' ton and° Abraham Lincoln. MAKES <X)MPAR1SOXS. "Oh," said a distinguished colleague follow ing the astute Senator Gorman, "if we come into power, while protection is robbery we will say to you that we will Journey In the direc tion of free trade, but we will not destroy your Industries over night." Great God, think of It! They won't kill you outright, but they will starve you to death day by day. They want to he on guard to protect the people who are dwelling In peace and prosperity under a Republican policy. It reminds me of the fable of Aesop. You know the record In one of his fables that the wolves said to the sheei^"diecharge the dogs" — who were their natural protectors — "and em ploy us and we will take care of you." Does the capital of this country and the labor of this country want to be under the care of the wolf Gorman and the wolf Williams and their fel lows? I do not think so. What a country this is. And, Republicans, we have got to out line the policy and lead the people In caring for It. Why, we are like the women; we not only have to take care of ourselves, but more, as one of our women said, we have to take care of the men. The Republican party not only has to care for Itself, but has to care for the minority by a wl6e policy. How has It been doing It? We preserved the Union under the policy and leadership of this party. Do you recollect that the opposition party, on a de mand for an armistice and negotiation and compromise, nominated McClellan In 1864 and moved heaven and earth to defeat Lincoln? Do you recollect when the constitutional amend ments were submitted they said nay, nay, and then, after they, were adopted, the Demo crats came Into power temporarily In Indiana and Ohio they passed acts taking buck the assent of the States. When the first battle was fought against greenback money back in the seventies, out In the Middle West, whatever they were on the Atlantic coast, they were flatists In the West. From step to «tep through all these forty-four years, where, if you measure time by advance, we have lived two centuries as compared with any other period of the world* ¦ history.- they have pulled back, pulled back, and. when we ac complished — and It Is not necessary to march forward and try to accomplish again — they move into our old quarters and squat down there and make fHcee and »ay, "You are going to eend the country to hell." They are trying to convince the people that they ought to come Into power under the lead of Gormap In the Senate and Williams in th« Houee. They have been trying, to give the country Dover's powderr. DROPS INTO FABLE. Oh, well, aren't they going to change? Let us see. Just before the close of th« la«t Con gress New York's eloquent son, Bourke Cock ran, a member of the House of Representa tives, got the floor and he preached an old fashioned Democratic sermon, free trade and all that kind of thing, and he did it well, and there came from the minority side of the House, without exception, such cheering and crying and hurrahing and applauding as I never witnessed before In that House, because at last they had - the pure Democratic faith delivered to them. The Republican party is a national party and believes In diversification of our indus tries and the protection of American capital and American labor as against the cheaper labor elsewhere on earth. What <lo the other people believe in? For sixty years went out the cry of free trade throughout the world. free ships upon the sea. On other questions a tariff for revenue only. The free trade party has always denounced the Republican policy of protection as robbery, and whenever clothed with power, whatever Its pretenses, it had thrust a dagger into the very heart of pro tection. Great heavens, the Republican party from 18t>0 until this moment moves on— does what good common sense dictates and the country grows to It. How is It now? We have reduced' postal rates over one-half since 1860 on the average. I.tL«t year the postal revenues were $131,000,000 as against $$.000,000 in I860. Keep that in your mind — S1U4.COO.OOO. And th? whole serv ice only cost S138.0OO.CO0. We had a deficit of $4,000,000—3 per cent, and we would not have had that deficit had it not been, under the lead of the Republican party looking out for the welfare of all the people and con ducting the Government from a business stand point under the lead of McKInley. followed by Roosevelt, there was established free rural deliver}' that cost $10,000,000. • ight and a half million dollars. Keep that in your minds — eight and a half million dol lars. How much do you suppose it cost to run the department? Nineteen million. It took aJI the revenue and as much more and one-quarter as much more from the treasury to pay for that postal service. Why. gentle men, the city postofflee of Chicago ls»*t year collected more revenue by almost one million of dollars than was collected by the whole department In the United State* In 1S60. REDUCED POSTAL. RATES. From March. ISCO, the year that Lincoln came into power, to March. 1S61. in that twelve months the total revenue of the Post office Department in all the United States wa« Take the Postofflee Department, that reaches all of the people, and no man is compelled to l>ay one penny. It is voluntary taxation. Made by labor? Yes, made by labor that works fewer hours than any labor on earth. Made by labor that, conservatively estimated, received $1 75. as against the average of the competitive labor In the world of $1. Oh, gentlemen, it is not a few rich men that make markets; nay. nay. It is the multi plied millions on farms, in mine and in factory, that work to-day and consume to-morrow, and with steady employment and good wages give us. with eighty millions of people, a market equal to two hundred millions of consuming people anywhere else on earth. The farmer buys the artisan's product. The artisan, being employed, buys the farmer'* product. Th? wheels go round. You cannot strike one great branch of labor In the re public without the blow reacting on all pro ducers. Well, are you satisfied with the com parison from the manufacturing standpoint? If not, let m» give you another illustration that will p-rhaps go home to the minds of men more quickly than th<? Illustration I have iTlven. combined manufactured products of Great Rritaln, of Germany and of France. Where do we get the market for It? Ninety-seven per cent of this treat product — one-third the world's product — finds a market among our telves in the United States. And >et of this product last year we sold to foreign countries — 1 am tpeaktnz now of the manufactured products— more than four hundred million dol lar*. 23 per cent of our total exports, and our total exports made and make us the great est exporting nation en earth. His Speech a Summons to Protection's Colors. To be serious for a moment, the Republican party is a coverement through party and through organization. Oh. you find people once in a while who do not want any parties. As lor* as you liave SO.000,000 people competent for e< If -government they will organize and • -ill the crganization a r>erty.

Will you »#ar with me for five minutes ¦While I eppak of the comparison as It vu then upon the one hand of facts and the con 'riitlon to-day. In 18G0 we had been .sub rtantlatly dominated for many years with the free trade party: Insignificant in manufactured, rrcat In agriculture.

In 1904. as in 100ft, everybody has known for t»(he months past who Is to be our standard bearer in this campaign. We are here for busi ness.

Kach of the thousands of listeners re celveJ a confidential tip. The Speaker had "ritten his first speech and had tried to memorize it. Uut he did not have the slightest intention of follow ing it. He knew the inspiration would come — had come — and he just wanted a free hand to cut loose. "So let us ramble awhile." That is ¦what he said. And then he abandoned himself to his liifiitless store of pro lound political sagacity and his orig inal and characteristic vocabulary. Throughout his address the cheering was generous, intelligent and appre ciative. Said he: Gentlemen of the convention— For the first tune in my life I put in black and •white enuug-h STt^nccs to contain 25CO words to eay to you. I have tried to memorize it. but can not.

It is a silent river, and yet the brawling river that Is like to tr;" river Plattc. out in Nebraska, that is 5'j-jrtefm milcb wide and four inches deep, ntikes more noise than the bigger river.

There was an enthusiastic indorsement of the belligerent attitude of the -chairman. The fighting Fpirit of the delegates was c roused. This spirit did not vanish. It was everywhere manifest — in refer ences to the past, in the memory of the dead MoKinley, so long the cham pion of protection; in the great por trait of M*rk Hanna, whose last polit litical advice vas to "stand pat"; in the fighting Speaker of the House of Kepresentatives; in the positive and emphatic tones of the chairman of the committee on resolutions; in every word of the platform and in the cheers vhich rose from the delegates to be «aught up and re-echoed in the gal leries. The gavel wielded by the Speaker — more like a bung-siarter than a parliamentary weapon— was emblem atic of the spirit which controlled the convention.

It '¦xpressed abundant humor, strangely u!eided with virile pugnacity. He way pausing to think hov.- to begin. His thoughts were pictured in his face. They were pleasant; they were inspir ing.

Per haps there was needed the fightin? declarations of the party representing the majority of the American people fcnd' the responsibility of the Govern ment, for ex-Secretary Root, in his eloquent and powerful speech as tem porary chairman, did not advance upon fighting grounds. He barely mention ed the tariff. Bui Speaker Cannon threw out the o!d shiboieth of the party the instant he i^ecured the savcl. and he left no doubt as to where the parly ttood. lie took a bold position on the f.»Thting line for protection to Ameri can industries. £:>ecial lasi-arch to The Call MADISON.
