the Keynotes of the
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
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
A living wage for workers.
The present industrial relations act
and workmen's compensation law.
Economy and efficiency in public of
Equalization of taxes.
Strengthening of state budget law.

iting the issue of tax einempt securi- ,
Rigid enforcement of the dry laws.

Adjusted compensation for ex-serv
Equal rights for women.

Towner bill effective in Colorado.

WANT OUR MARKETS
Foreign Manufacturers and American
Importers Are Grouchy About
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
Metropolitan papers are reprinting
editorials from British, French, Ger
man, Italian and other European news
papers berating the United States for

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
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

need destroy ourselves to be helpful
