Followlng ls the full text ot the
platform to bo presented to the Re
publican State Coiiventlon as pre
pared by the Resolutions Commlttee
deslgnated by the Republican State
We, the Republtcans of Vermont, by
our reprcsentatives and delegate3 ln
State Coiiventlon assembled, do most
heartlly renew our allegiancc to the
prlmary principles and teuets ot the
only polltlcal organization that has
iueeia auccessful lu the govermnent of
the Nation from the days when the
party spraug Into being with patrlotic
vi3lon and statesmansliip to save a
nation to be governed by all. Even as
Vermonters were ploneers in the es
tiblishmcnt of the Republican party
1 jre than half a century ago at a
ti e when it took the courage of eon
. ions to advocate Its new doctrlnes
ana purpos's, so they have ever slnce
been and are today- the consistent
ndvocates of a party pollcy that will
rise to the new duties of all new oc
caslons with the soDer-ininded ambl
tion of men whose dlscretion only
makes for the better cholce for pro
gress and not for falterlng or doubt,
delay and do-nothlng. We belleve
that If the Republican party of today,
1s to conduct the govermnent of the
Nation tomorrow, it niust not cease
to take account of che awakeued and
relnvlgorated aspiration of the peo
ple for the reallzatlon of hlgher ideals
of clvlc righteotisness, buslness hou
esty, equallty of econoniic opportn
nity, and polltlcal freedom, and we
uuhesltatlngly declare ourselves in
sympathy with unceasing progress
along the lines blazec by the patriotlc
leadershlp of Theodore Roosevelt and
followed by hls lllustrious successor
in the Presidency, Wllliam Howard
Taft. We are proud to express our
hearty sympathy with the hish pur
poses and admlratlon of the Uevoted
labors of President Taft In hls con
duct ot the nationai govermnent.
The Turiff.
We deslre to emphasize ocr belief
that the time has come when the
adjustment of tariff schedules should
be taken out of pohtlcs. The reven
ue act of thls great govermnent
should no longer be subjected to the
caprice of local or sectional interesta
or other undue influences ln a geu
eral revision by Congress but its
Schedules should be amended, detall
by detail froni time to time under the
suggestion and counsel of a non
partisan tariff board or commisslou
whose functlon it should be to pro
mote the constaut adaptatlon of thls
statute to the demaud3 of varying
condltions of trade and economlcs af
ter tho methods of slmple buslness
prudouce and natlontit commori sense.
We favor such reclproca.1 tariff re-
latlons with the Domlnlon of Canada
as will the more actively stlmulate
thp Interchange of prolitable trade
bptween the two countiies npon a ba
sls fair to both and sufflclently pro
tectlve of the Interesta of our own

, Ilie State Constltutlon.
Whlle the organlc law of the State
should not be lightly varled, but above
all statutes should be stable and cer
'tain, we are couvinced that the tlmo
lias come when hands should be rev
orently laid upon tho Constltution of
Vermont and certaln changes made
in Its provlsions that they may more
clearly deflne our polltlcal llbertles
and the obligatlous they entall upon
us. We, therefore, commend to tho
General Assembly of 1910 the report
i of the commlsion created by autho
rity ot the General Assembly of 1908
to propose amendments to the con
Btitution of Vermont, and endorso

Iluccalnureatc Sermon Dcltvcrcd at
Middlebury College by rrcsldcut
Middlebury, .lune 19. The bacca
laureate sermon preached by Presi
dent John M. Thomas at Middlebury
College today was on the subject of
"Freedom," tho text being "The llb-
erty of the glory of tne chlldren of
God." Romans 8:21.
Dr. Thomas said ln part: "At bot-
tom the question 0f freedom 13 the
rellgiou3 question, a question of the
quallty of sotil with whlch a man
face3 the world. The freest mau
the world has seen was a frlend of
flshers, and had not whcre to lay hls
head. Hls way ls the way of freedom
for cvery mau: strlctest submlsslon
to truth, cost what lt may; falthfulcst
dlscharge of duty, in the face of the
dlrest perlls; patient yleldlng to the
world's worst treatment but victory
stlll, freedom ln the soul, where alone
ls freedom worth havlng, or worthy
the name."
Members of the Qraduatlng Class:
"Your alma mater sends you forth
to win manhood freedom in a world
ot old-ttme slaveries. Your gradua
tlon is not your admls3lon into the
real of llberty, but only your inltia
tion into the flght for lt. We cannot
present you with freedom; we can
only bld you achieve lt. We have
tried to prepare you for that achleve-
ment and to glve you heart for it. It
is a great thing ln tnls world of tre-
incndous forces, powers that etend
beyond the orblt of the outmost sun,
powers of veil that thwarted the
mightiest and dragged them froru
their glory, to staud forth in llberty,
to take orders only from the heart
wlthin you, and to be yourself desplte
the wor'd. That i3 the llberty of
the glorj of the chlldren of God.
"The contest for it will be severe
and you will not lightly conquer.
When the flght ls open, agalnst foes
whose enslaving cnaiu3 have long
been chosen, you may bear tbe vic
tory by preservatlon of a clear mlnd
and a flrm will. But the lssue will
often be clouded, and you will' re
qulre the utmost vlgllance and ever
fresh determination to see things ns
they are and to assert ln each new
crlsls the mastery or the splrit. We
wlsh to send you forth with) the sptr
It of the victory in your liea'r'tSi'Learn
to expect to overcome, whatever the
obstacles, and to anticipate trlumph
over all dlscouragements. Acqulre
the bearlng of men who can do -what
ought to be done, who will do what
they are rightfully expected to do, and
are able to suffer, as strong men stlll,
whntever of the world's cruelty they
may be called upon to endure
Keep undylng the flres of mastery
that burn in your hearts. Youth's id
eals, which they will soou tell you
are impractlcal, are truer than the
pesslmism ot dlscouraged age. Do not
lightly glve them over. Take coun
sel of your noblest bravest moments,
and write your convlctions of God
and duty and the purpose of your life
by the light of their lti3piratIon:
(.hen tend the laiup.
"Henceforth more than heretofore
you bear in your keeping the honor
of your alma mater. Your victory
for God and right is her victory;
your defeat is your shame. She live3,
not for what we may do here, but for
whlat you may do in tho world. Not
only for the affection you have won
tiom our hearts and you have won
it and will hold it but because of
tho servicc you may render to God
and your lcllow-men, we call down
blessing 111,011 you as you set out 011
a new stage in the journey toward the
1'berty ot tho glory of tho ch.ldieu
of God."

Brattleboro Juno 20.--Rev. Uoy M.
Houghton, who had just returned
from attendlng the 115th anuual con
vention of tho Congregational con
ference at Montpelier, spoko yester
day mornlng on "Our Misslon to Ver
mont Towns." Mr. Houghton satd dur
lng hls discourse: "We belleve lt tho
duty of the Christlan church, ln ,1

do all lt can to keep from tho import
ant po3ttion of Governor of a Christ
lan State a man who stands with one
hand ln the lap of the church, and
witn tho other supportlng the liquor
Those llstenlng to the discourse
were not Incllned' to bollove that Mr.
Houghton referrcd to aiiy other can
dldate than Dr. John A. Mead of
Rutland, ns hls reference could not
be lnferred as touchlng any of tho
other candldates. Contluuing ln hls
sermon, Mr. Houghton said "Tho
church Is remlss in her duty if she
does not leave the community with
Christlan falth, so that men cannot
crush the llves out of little chlldren
in the mllls for the sake of a few pal
try dollars, and so that politlcians
cannot ride Into offlce, lcavtng per
jured souls along the way, and ustng
their public trust, not for the public
good, but for the men who pay the
campalgn expenses." Thls is probably
th strongest arralgnment that has
been made of any polltlcal candldate
ln a pulplt. Whlle Mr. Hougton made
use of no namcs, lt was . well under
stood who he was referring to. He
showed emphatlcaly why the church
should make men of character to 0

Contractor McLaughlin went over
the place today with Rickard and the

reasons for so dolng. Goldfleld made
an offer whlch lt was hard to turn
down. They are the gamest lot ot men
I ever saw. Thls mornlng a commlt
tee ot Goldfleld buslness men offered
to take me to a local bank and guar
antee me $200,000. I declded on Reno,
howover, for several reasons. In the
flrst placo 1 dld not feel that flght fans
of tho East and West should bo com
