The subject whs Ignored by the Republican national convention in 1 900; it vta Ignored In l!i4, and the proposition was ex plicitly repudiated In 19UR. for thn recent Republican national innven tion, by a vote of M!tf to 114. re jected the plank endorsing Ihe popu lar election of senators and this waH donp in the convention which nomi nated Mr. Taft, few delegates from his own state voting for the pi, ink. Personal Inclination Not Hufflcirnt. In his notification speech, the Re publican candidate, speaking of the elect inn of senators by the people, Kays; 'personally, 1 nm Inclined to favor It, but It is hardly a party nurstlnn." What Is necesrary to make this a party question? When tho Democratic convention endorses s proposition by n unanimous vote, and the Republican convention re jerts thp proposition by a vole of seven to one, doeK it not become an issue between the parties? Mr. Taft can not remove the question from the arena of politics by expressing a personal inclination toward the Dem ocratic position. For several years he has been ronnerted with the ad ministration. What has he ever bald or done to bring this question before the public? What enthusiasm has he shown In thp reformation of the sen ate? What influence could he exert In behalf of a reform which his party has openly and nolorlously condemn ed In its convention, and to which he ls attached only by a belated ex pression of personal inclination? The (iateway to Other Reforms. "Shall tho people rule?" Every re medial messure of a national char acter must run the gauntlet of the senate. The president may personal ly incline toward a reform; thc house may consent to It; but as long as the senate obstructs the reform, tho peo ple in list wait. The president may heed a popular demand; the house may yield to public opinion; but ns long as the senate is defiant, the rule of the people Is defeated. The Dem ocratic, platform very properly de. scribes the popular election of sen ators as "the gateway to other na tional reforms." Shall we open th8 gate, or shall we allow the exploiting interest,, to bar the way by the con trol of this branch o the federal leg islature? Through a Democratic vic tory, and through a Democratic vic tory only, can the people secure the popular election of senators. The smaller parties are unable to secure this reform; tha Republican party, under Its present leadership, Is reso lutely opposed to It; the Democratic party stands for It and haR hodly de manded it. If I am elected to tho presidency, those wh0 are elected upon the ticket, with me will be, like myself, pledged to this reform, and I shall convene congress In extraordi nary session immediately after Inau guration, snd ask, among other things, for tho fulfillment of this platform pledge. House Rules Despotic. The third Instrumentality employ ed to defeat tho will ot the peope found In the rules of the house of representatives. Our platform points out that "tho house of representa tives was designed by th0 fathers of the constitution, to bo the popular branch of our government, responsive to the Public will." and adds; "The housp of representatives, as controlled In recent years by the Re publican party, has ceased to be a deliberative and legislative body, re sponsive to the will of a majority of tne members, but hm come under the absolute domination of the speaker, who has entire control of Its delib erations, and powers of legislation. "Wo have observed with amaze ment the popular branch of our fed eral government helpless to obtain either the consideration 0r enactment of measures desired by a majority or its members." Thlj arraignment is fully justified. The rl0rm Republicans In the house of representatives, when In the mi nority In their own party, are as help less to obtain a hearing or to secure a vote on a measure aB are the Dem ocrats. In the recent session of the present congress, there was a consid erate element In the Republican par ty favorable to remedial legislation; (Tut a few leaders, In control of the organlxstion, despotically suppressed these members, and thus forcd a real majority in tbe ho ate to submit to a well igsnued minority. The Repub lican nstlonal convention, instead of rebuking this attt'k upon the pop ular government, eulogized congress snd nominated as the Republican candidate for vice president one of the men who ehared In the retponsl bllny for the coercion of the house, Our party demands that "tbe house of ropresentat Ives shall again become a deliberative body, controlled hy a majority of the people's reprei-enta-lives, and not by the f-peaker," and is pledged to adopt "such ruins and regulations to govern the house of represented e as will enable a ma jority of ls members to direct Its de liberations snd control legislation." "Sinn the people rue?" They can not do go unless t hey an control the house cf representatives, and through their lepreiienlatlves In the house, giv expression to their purposes and their desire. The Republican party is committed to th methods now In vogue in the house of repre sentatives; the Democratic party is pledged to such a revision of the rules ig will bring the popular branch of the federal government In to harmony with (he Ideas of those who framed our constitution and founded our government. Other issues Will Re IHsetisserl loiter. "Shall the people rule?" 1 repeat is declared by our platform to be the overshadowing question, and as the campaign progresses, I shall take occasion to discus this question as it manifests Itself In other Issues; for whether we consider the tariff question, the trust question, lhP rail road question, the banking question, the labor question, the question of imperialism, tb0 development of our ssterways. or any other of the num erous problems which press for solu tion, wo shall find that thc real ques tion Involved in each is. wftether tho government nhall remain a mere bus iness asset of favor seeking corpora tions or b0 an instrument In the hands of the peoplo for the advance ment of the common weal. Democratic Party Has Darned Confi dence. If the voters are satisfied with the record of the Republican party and with its management of public af fairs we can not reasonably ask for a change in administration; If. how ever, the votera feel that the people, as a whole, have too little influence in shaping the policies of the govern ment; If they feel that great combi nations of capital hav0 encroached upon the rights of the masses, and employed the instrumentalities of government to secure an unfair share of the total wcath produced, then w-6 have aright ;o xpect a verdict against the Republican party and In favor of the Democratic party; for our party hss risked defeat aye, suffered defeat in Its effort to arouse the conscience of the public and to bring about that very awak ening to which Mr. Taft has referred. Only those are worthy to be en trusted with leadership in a r cause who are wining to Qlo m.' !t, and thf, Democratic party has proven its worthiness by its refusal to pur chase victory by delivering the peo ple into the hands of those who have despoiled tbem. In this contest be tween Democracy on the one side snd plutocracy on the other, the Demo cratic party has taken Its position on the side of equal rights, and Invites the opposition of those who usfl poli tics to secure special privileges and governmental favoritism. fJuaglng the progress of the nation, not by the happiness or wealth or refinement of a few, but "by th0 prosperity and ad vancement of the average man," the Democratic party charges tho Repub lican party with being the promoter of present abuses, the opponent of necessary remedies and the only bul wark of private monopoly. The Dem ocratic party affirms that in this campaign it is the only party, having a prospect of success, which stands' for Justice In government and for equity In the division of the fruits of Industry. Democratic Fftrt.v Defender of Honeet Wealth. We may expect those who have committed larceny by law and pur chased Immunity with their political influence, to attempt to raise false Is sues, and to employ "the livery of heaven" t0 conceal their evil pur poses, hut they can no longer de ceive. The Democratic party Is not the enemy of any legitimate Industry or of honest accumulations. It Is, on th0 contrary, a frl?nd of Industry and the steadfast protector of that wealth which represents a service to society. The Democratic party does not seek to annihilate all corpora tions; It simply asserts that as the government creates corporations, It must retain the power to regulate and to control them, and that It should not permit any corporation to convert Itself into a monopoly. Sure ly we should have the co-operation of all legltlmatn corporations In our effort to protect business and Indus try from the odium which lawlesr combinations ot capital will, 1 un checked, cist upon them. Only bj the separation of the good from the bad rn 'h good be made secure. .Not Revolution hut Reformation. The Democratic party seeks not revolution but reformation, and I need hardly remind the student of history that rures are mildest when applied at once; that remedies In crease In severity astheir applica tion is postponed. Rlood poisoning may be stopped hy the loss of a fin ger today; it mav cost an arm tomor row or a llfp thn next day. fln pot son In the body politic can not be removed loo soon, for the evilB pro duced by it Increase with the lapse of time. That there ire abuses which need to be remedied, even the Repub lican candidate Hdmlts; that his par ty is unable to remedy them, has lnn fully demonstrated during the last ten years. I have such confidence In th Intelligence as well a a patriot ism of the people, that I can not doubt their readlneng to accept the reasonable reforms which our party proposes, rather than permit the con tinued growth of existing nbui'es to hurry the country on to remedied more radical and more drasilc. Our Party's Ideal. The platform of our party doses with a brief statement of the party's ideal. It favors "sivh in adminis tration of thp government as will in sure, as far as human wisdom can, that each citizen shall draw from so ciety a reward commensurate with his contribution lo the welfare of so ciety." jovernments are ond in propor tion as they iicur to each membej of society, so far as governments csn Railroad AiriMl cd crsrture of ill trains in Southern Kansas id, arrives to J5 a in. oj, depart . 4:4) p.m. Pecoi Valley & Northeastern.
