Johnston’s REPUBLICAN PLATFORM Industrial Peace, Law and Order, and I-awh Encouraging Agriculture the Keynotes of the Platform. Denver, October 2. —In a platform declared by political observers to be the plainest, firmest and most satis fying to all groups prepared in many years, thr Republican Party of Colo rado Sunday declared its plans and principles for the approaching elec tion. A firm stand lor law enforcement and the maintenance of the State Rangers for tliis end is the first car dinal point in the platform and the issue in which it moat widely differs from the democratic pla.form. Calling attention to the fact that the taxpayers have still to retire a $1,658,000 debt contracted for past in surrections, the Republican platform points out that the Rnngcrs are a force designed to prevent such violance by acting in time. This is in striking con trast to the democratic plan of allow ing trouble to break first and then de - claring martial law. “The first duty of any government to its people is to render them secure in their persons, their employment and their property,” the platform states. "The right of every man to work when, where and for whom he chosen is beyond dispute. We pledge the Republican party and its nominees to see that every individual is pro tected in these fundamental rights. “All thinking citizens know that since the enactment of this Ranger law they have enjoyed industrial peace without fighting for it. Our state police force has been and will continue to be a guaranty to our people that peace will he maintained under any and all circumstances.” In its dealing with agricultural pro blems. the Republican platform is abl>- to point tc monumental achievements in behalf of the fanner and purposes further efforts to improve farm condi tions if it is retained in power. Recognizing in black and white that “the prosperity of our state is depen j uert on the prosperity of our farmers,” the platform pledges the party in this state to seven definite measures for the farmer. These are the extension of additional credits to fanners and stockmen, state and federal loans to finance co-operative warehouses, the .strengthening of the cattle tubercular law, state aid in destroying plant and cuttle diseases, elimination of discrim inulory trade practices, improvement in tnmsportation, and the bringing of the producer closer to the consumer. As proof that the Republican party's promises to the fanner are not false, the platform points to the fact that the present Republican administration has loaned $1,000,000 to farmers and reduced their taxation by courageously enforceing law in the state. It also ci-lls attention to the six great meas ures passed by the present Republican congress for agricultural relief. Where the Democrats propose to erect state-owned warehouses without explaining where the money is com ing from,the Republican platform pro poses that the farmer own his own warehouses thru co-operative associa tions, and pledges itself to arrange state loans to help to this end. There are 14 other explicit points in the Republican platform, beside? peroration reviewing the enviable re cord of both national a and state ad ministrations under Republican control. The platform declares for: Laws to make advocacy of the de struction of life or property a felony. All measures for betterment of la bor. A living wage for workers. The present industrial relations act and workmen's compensation law. Economy and efficiency in public of fice. Equalization of taxes. Strengthening of state budget law. A consittutional amendment prohib iting the issue of tax einempt securi- , ties. Rigid enforcement of the dry laws. More and better highways. Adjusted compensation for ex-serv ice men. Equal rights for women. Legislation to make the Shepherd- Towner bill effective in Colorado. Highest standards in the public schools. Preservation of Colorado's right to first use of its waters. Keep peace in Colorado. WANT OUR MARKETS Foreign Manufacturers and American Importers Are Grouchy About Tariff. European countries have been con ducting a propaganda for over a year against the enactment of an American protective tariff.. In this they have been aided by the international hank ers in this country, the free traders and the importing interests, all of whom place the prosperity of Europ ean manufacturers above the prosperi ty of American manufacturers and the welfare of American working men. Since it became a certainty that a protective tariff would be enacted this session of Congress, European propa gandists have redoubled their attacks upon the United States and upon the protective tariff. They are now claim ing the tariff will ruin them and will make it utterly impossible for them to repay any of the loans made to them by this government during the war. Metropolitan papers are reprinting editorials from British, French, Ger man, Italian and other European news papers berating the United States for protecting its own industries, safe guarding its own markets and afford ing steady employment to its own workmen. They denounce the tariff as a selfish policy. This in face of the fact that every European nation has written at least one tariff (some of them have written three or four) since the arm istice, each one being higher in its rates than the preceding one, until to day, in many European countries, tar iff rates practically amount to an em bargo. All of this propaganda is finding ready echo in Democratic newspapers and from Democratic members of Con gress and other Democratic leaders who are on the stump. They are all fearful that the protective tariff is go ing to throw some European working men out of a job and deprive some European manufacturers of a chance to exploit the American market. Ac cording to their theory, it is very self ish for this country to adopt a policy which protects its own industries and its own working men. They would have the country ‘altruistic” to the ex tent that our working men would be walking the streets, our manufacturers without business, our American farm ers without a home market for their produce all in order that European nations might fatten on our adversity. In this connection it is very profit able to recall the sentiments of Presi dent Harding in his annual mes sage to Congress last December, wher he urged the enactment of a protective tariff. In that message he took cog nizance of just this propaganda and gave his opinion of it thu6: “Sensible of every obligation of hu manity, commerce and finance, linked, as they are, in the present world con dition, it is not to be argued that we need destroy ourselves to be helpful to others. With all my heart I wish restoration to the peoples blighted by the awful World War, but the process of restoration does not He in our ac ceptance of like conditions.
