Fulfilled Pledges

[Special Dispatch io The Call] ,
Printed by arrangement with Chicago Tribune.
BEVERLY, Mass., Aug. 5. — Under
the rule* which applies to inter
views with the president of the
United States I am not permitted to
cjiiote Mr. Taft, tut 1 am authorized to
say that the following expresses
clearly the views he entertains of the
tatus of the republican party today:
• The republican party is a party of
progress a party of execution.
It has fulfilled loyally its campaign ; pledges. ,-. : J
It lias be*n efficient and effectiTe in gorernment.
It lias enacted wise and progressive j legislation in the inferest of .the
juopie, and in accordance with the platform adopted by its convention in 190 S.
lUder the circumstances it is meet that the people should gire it thei^
moral indorsement by continuing it in power in congress at the- coming
The chief executive does not speak vaingloriously of the achievements, of
ijis administration, and of the majority in congress. So far.as;he himself As
concerned, he feels he has done the best that' isMn* him, for the* people)
.Irrespective of political faith, and he proposes'to pursue those tpblicies," which,
in his judgment, will inure to their benefit n the future. . \u25a0 /;" \u25a0\u25a0 .' •'/.
Naturally, he desires .republican sucqess in November, iless'^ because of
the personal gratification he will enjoy from \ the .confidence , which -thereby
vill be expressed in him and his administration,' than in; the a
republican majority will afford to write into law" far reaching reforms he' con-;
The people have little idea of the importance -oft the legal* problems
which will press for solution during the next 'congress-^thV J last "of this
B4fore the congress elected in November shall meet the, supreme court
will hand down fts decisions in the Standard oil arid' tobacco r trust cases" and
if the contention- of the government' be sustained, ,as v the president
believes, a vast reorganization of business will follow -and; legislation must
be provided to enable .the government properly ;to Vgrappie" wkh the new
conditions. If the government be beaten, then : there^wiir be a universal
- demand for the strengthening of the anti-trust law,[or;at: least the provision
of a remedy which will force huge combinations of capital to conduct busi
ness more in the interest of the people than is 'the case today. .
The president, already has framed a solution in his federal.incorpora
tion plan for all corporations doing an' interstate \u2666business which he'sub
mitted to congress in a special message last : winter, v . - • - ; "
The tariff experts will submit to the president, within two .years recom
tnendations for revision of certain schedules #f the tariff 'law. The problem
of currency reform must be dealt wirii couragcousl>'. Effective govern^
mental control of railroad capitalization must "be , secured. ..The demand ;pf
labor respecting the issue of injunc-«
tions must be considered .wisely and
with due regard for the effect of the
action taken upon all the Important
interests involved. .*j
Further reforms for the . conserva
tion of national resources which will
insure the preservation of natural
* wealth for this and Jutqfe generations
a.nd at the same time permit wise and
sane exploitation and development
must.be enacted.. I have referred to
only the more striking things in the
legislative' program the president still
'has 'in mind to show how necessary,
in his vievAls the election of a repub
lican majority 'in the falL A demo
• crat house would refuse, of course, to
grant him* tlie legislation he so
earnestly wishes. It would hamper
his administration in every possible
way. \u2666
AnJ while from a legislative point
of view he J would be able to achieve
little with a democrat house, it is-the
belief of the president he still could
' do many things in the administration
wliich would be of "great value to .the
countrj'. He proposes to Introduce
economy' In government,; to. place the
eeveral* departments upon a business
basis, 'to create an efficient machine.
