1 f0S specifically rsl for a rhann
In the conctltutlon which will put th
election of senaiois In thp hands of
tho voters, and the proposition tins
been endorsed by u number of ih
smaller parties, hui no Hepuhlcan
national convention has been willing
to champion the cflut, of the people
on this subject. 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
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
Democratic Fftrt.v Defender of Honeet
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
