Pratt cer tainly deserves great praise from the people of Granada for his nntiriug and successful efforts to secure funds to complete and furnish the new M. E. church. The Party of Retraction. i By its present attitude ou finance, i which is one of silence in the plat form and of an irrevocable gold Htandard in the nominee, the demo cratic party presents itself as reced ing from its paramount issue of 1890 i and 1900. If there were a demo , cratic majority in the next Congress, the gold standard would unquestion ably be attacked, for the platform says nothing to prevent it. What Parker would do as President is merely conjectural. He might fight but that is something his closest ad i visers, Hill and Belmont, have never yet done openly. Even by a dub ious support of the gold standard, , the democratic party doubles on its reoord since 1890. All the tremend omciJS-X. iTE’arspjLPSR or peouteec cctjittt LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 3, 1904. ' ous noise of the free silver crusade , is admitted to have been but sheets , iron thunder. The gold standard is > conceded to be the idea to stand by. The republican party marches ou ward, it does things, postively and effectively. Its time is not occupied in taking back and explaining. It sticks to its policies and clinches them by administrative results. The approval of the people abides with it because of the constant demonstrs tion that the side it takes, and holds firmly, is the right side. Give the democratic party eight years and it works around to the same view, be cause farther denial has become ab surd. If the democrats carried the election this year they could only block the wheels of legislation, snarl at accomplished facts and put fresh rods in pickle for their own party. As a minority they can be shoved forward, as in the case of the gold standard. But as a majority they bring calamity npon the country and dig a deeper pit for themselves. Their party wabbles and reverses itself. It is unworthy of confidence. —Globe-Democrat. President Roosevelt’s Response. Custom has made the official noti fication of the presidential nominee an important political ceremony, and the response of the candidate is re garded as a contribution to campaign literature second only to the official letter of acceptance and the party platform. There will therefore be much in terest in what Mr. Roosevelt said at Oyster Bay Wednesday, and this in terest will be increased on account of the brevity and the straightforward ness of his remarks. The republican presidential can didate has lost uo time in glittering generalities, but he has presented a statement of plain facts that cannot fail to make their impression npoD the minds of all candid voters. Mr. Roosevelt evidently appreciat es the fact that the strongest possi ble evidence that can be presented by the republicans is the record of their accomplishment in national ad ministration, and against this solid record the flimsy criticisms, invec tives and misrepresentations of the democratic platform can have no ef feet. The president has wisely left to i his formal letter of acceptance a de v tailed discussion of the political is i sues of the day, but his address in . response to the notification commit tee contains a condensed summary l of them which leaves nothing essen I tial in doubt as to the attitude of the t president and the party which he i represents. Pueblo Chieftain. > _ ** 4 . . Must Be Kept Inviolate For this campaign the democratic party has made no issue paramount. * The only important declaration made in the platform, which differs radi cally from the republican position, is that in regard to the tariff. "We denounce protection as a robbery of ’ the many to enrich the few,” is the essential part of the platform declar 1 ation in regard to the tariff. Be cause it is the only important declar tion of policy essentially different from the republican policy in regard 1 to the same matter, it may be expect ed to become ex proprio vigore, the paramount issue. Tariff reduction was the paia monout issue of the campaign of 1892. It may be expected, therefore, that this year’s campaign will be along the same lines as that of twelve years ago, but not, that its result will be the same. The people of the United States have not forgotten the lesson they learned in the succeed iag four years. The republican policy of protec tion for American industries and American labor is as certainly estab lished as is the gold standard. Bee ognition of that fact by the demo cratic party is only a question of time. The democracy will be com polled to back down from its anti protection position just as it was compelled to repudiate its declara tion that the war for the maiuten ance of the integrity of the Union was a failure, jnstas it has been com pelled to admit, tacitly, that its de mand for the free coinage of silver was a blunder. Confronted with the question whether the republican protective system shall be maintained or de stroyed, the American people will not hesitate to make emphatic reply that it must and shall be kept iuvio late. —Albany “Journal.” s2o*ooo just received for farm loans.
