American people meet this competi
tion with other lands in our own mar
kets?" It was the first question that
received attention of congress when it
assembled. The first act passed by an
American congress was a protective
tariff act which - contains the first
phase of legislation on the statutes
of the United States. This was the
first question of importance, because
it was for this purpose that govern
ment was formed; for the purpose of
considering the differences between a
•state and the people of that state and
the protecting of the people of that
state against the competition of other
countries. Why? Let us illustrate.
What the people of this valley need is
a market. It would make little differ
ence how much you produce if you
had no market for it. Of course if
you consumed all your produce you
might be happy and contented, but you
would gain nothing in riches. If peo
ple consume all they produce they
gain nothing in riches. It is only
when you produce a surplus over and
above what you consume that you are
adding to your wealth, it is only when
you have something to sell, that you
are gaining in wealth. In order to do
that you must have a market for your
produce, and that is the paramount
issue with the people of the Snake
river valley. You must have a good mar
ket—a market in which you may sell
your surplus, and a market in which
shall not meet an unjust corn
petition in the sale of your produce.
That is what you need in order to
build up and continue the prosperity
which yon now enjoy. Anv condition
of government that will furnish you
good market is the condition of gov
ernment that you want and must have.
The market for the produce of the
people of the United States depends in
a large measure niton the protective
tariff policy of the government,
the door is thrown open and the pro
duce of other countries is admitted to
your market to compete with the pro
ducts of your country, your market
will be affected. For instance you pro
duce hay on this new land.. There is
a duty of $4.00 a ton on hay. No hay
can c»me across the border and com
pete with you in the market unless
they pay a $4.00 fine, and when they
have paid $4.00 for this privilege, they
cannot undersell you without losing

horses outside of the United States
enter this country without paying
this duty or fine of $25.00 per head,
and when thev have paid it their
horses stand them so much that they
cannot undersell you in the market.
And the duty upon another article that
produce in this valley is wheat.
The duty on wheat is 25c per bushel.

stances of the doctrine of protection.
This is the policy of the Republican
party. It has enacted whenever in
Just a few in
power, a sufficient and adequate pro
tective tariff statute. Today we have
what is known as the Dingley bill.
There has gone out a cry over the
land that this is unadvisable; that it
fosters trouble; that it does not work
evenly. That law was enacted in 1897.
That was some years ago. The bal
ance needs adjusting. The party that
made the Dingley law is the best party
to readjust it. And it has declared its
intentions and has promised the peo
ple that it will readjust it to meet the
existing conditions and they will if
they are retained in power so that
they can do so. The Republican party
has never failed to keep a promise
that it made to the American people.
(Cheering and cries of "That's so.")
It has not only the will to do so, but
th* ability to do so. The record of
its promises kept is found in the sta
tutes in force today. When it came
into existence first it was to meet a
condition now abhorred by all civilized
people, the condition of slavery,
first promise it made after coming in
to power was the promise
would abolish slavery,
promise at a great cost of life and
money—yet it kept that promise,
promised the American people that it
would restore the balance of indus
trial conditions, that it would bring
about the resumption of gold and sil
ver payments—and it kept that prom
ise. It promised the American people
that it would not repudiate the cost
of the debt Incurred in suppressing
the Rebellion—and it kept ttiat prom
ise, in spite of the threat of the Dem
ocratic • party, that to do so would
bring bankruptcy to
brought conditions of prosperity that
had not existed prior to that time.
Can any person here cite any promise
that it has failed to keep? (There was
no answer to this.)

taken a great deal of pains in order
that I may not make a mistake. There
is employment for every arm that is
willing to work. There is employment
for every one that seeks it. There is
employment for every dollar that we

was in power.

doing so, because there was no mon
ey in circulation. Wool, one of the
great products of this valley, fell from
lbYz and 16 cents to 6% cents a pound.
In 1896 up and down the valley of
the Snake river, wool was laying in
the warehouse because it was not
worth the freight to carry it to mar
ket. Why? Because the Democratic
party had repealed the McKinley tar
iff bill which was enacted just before
the Republican party was turned out
of power, and the Democrats called a
special session of congress to repeal
it. This was the reason for the com
petition from foreign countries. They
can produce them much cheaper than
we can. These commodities under our
protective tariff system cannot enter
our land in competition with our pro
ducts as 1 have already demonstrated.
Why, oh, why, do the American people
want to change this policy which rep
resents the prosperity they enjoy to
day? Take it away and you take away
your market. When a merchant sells
more than he buys, he is rich to the
extent of what he sells, but when he
buys more than he sells, or pays out
more than he takes in, then he is
growing poorer every day. The Amer
can people sold last year $500,000,000
more than they bought. They sold $500,
000,000 more in foreign markets. We
do not take into consideration that
portion of their products sold in this
country. We speak only of the bal
ance of trade in our dealings with
foreign nations. It is of course, im
portant to us to hear in mind that we
sold last year $500.000,000 more than
we bought in foreign lands. We there
fore pocketed last year $500,000,000 of
new money. Money that did not come
out of the pockets of the American
people, or any part of it. Money that
came out of the pockets of the people
of other lands, so that it was new
money. 1 do not mean by that any
thing added to the treasury of the U.
S., because not a dollar of the balance
of trade goes to the government. It
goes to the individual that produces
the commodity that is sent abroad. If
you have 100 bushels of wheat above
your consumption, yon sell it. It finds
its way abroad the out-going vessel;
coming back, it find its way into the
pockets of the man who raised it.
The American people have reached
their present state of government by
slow stages. The result from this
condition of government is that we
are today the happier and most pros
perous nation on the face of the earth.
(Cheering and clapping.)
been having the balance of trade in
our hands for the last eleven years.
The American people have sold more
than they have bought; they have tak
en in more than they have paid out;
they have put money into their pock
ets to the extent of $500,000,000, or
ever since the Republican party re
turned to power on March 4th, 1897.
Is not that a pretty good record for
a political party? The first thing to
look for is the prosperity of the Am
erican people as a people, and this you
always find if you find them under
protection. Why should a people turn
down a party that has brought about
this prosperity? This community is an
excellent example of the absolute abil
ity of the Republican party to admin
We have
ister a government that shall bring
prosperity to a people.
I say that the principles of a govern
nient are of the first importance, but
it is likewise important (hat men to
secure under these their best effects,
be guided by the voice of the major
ity. The Republican party standing
upon these principles, upon its great
record of achievement, has nominated
for its president and vice president,
men who have the confidence of the
people of the United States. (Ap
plause.) When the people placed in
nomination Wm. H. Taft, they did not
do so blindly, nor did they disregard
his record. He has been tried in every
walk of life and found true. Educated
as he was in one of the best education
al institutions in the world—Yale Col
lege—when he stepped out of that in
stitution with its guarantee as to
his fitness for citizenship, he did not
enter upon a life of idleness and lux
ury, he commenced to do something;
he went to work. He was made prose
cuting attornev for the county in
which he lived. He was re-elected to
this position on account of the ability
he had displayed in the performance
of his duties. Then he was appointed
to the supreme bench. The govern
ment recognizing his ability made him
one of its officers and appointed him
solicitor general of the United States,
the second highest office in the depart
ment of justice. Performing these du
ties with ability, he was appointed
United States circuit judge, and set
upon the circuit bench in the court of
appeals for 10 years, making a record
for fairness and justice unequalled by
any man. Because of his ability in
this office he was called upon to act
as chairman of the board of gover
nors of the Philippine Islands, when
at the close of the war in these is'.
ands it was necessary to pick up these
9,000,000 of irresponsible people and
place them on a higher plane than
they had occupied. This was done by
the board of which he acted as chair
man. He was next called to take the
portifolio of the secretary of war. He
had this up to the year he was nom
inated by the American people; with
the great Panama canal under his di
reetion; with the differences in Cuba
to adjust; and now we place him as
a candidate before you as the great
conservator of the good of the Amer
lean people. (Long cheering.) As his
assitant we place nomination James
S. Sherman, of New York, who has
sat In the congress of the United
States for 20 years, as a recognized
leader of the principles of the party,
and stands as one of the foremost men
In the party he represents. These are
the men we offer you as the Republic
an candidates for president and vice
president. What have we on the other
side of the platform? (Laughing and
cries of "Nothing.")
When the Democratic party came
into power in 1893, for the first time in
many years they repealed the tariff law
which had been enacted by the Repub
lican party and substituted the Gbr
man bill, and its articles of free trade
and offered you the free coinage of
silver at 16 to 1. The American peo
pie repudiated it in 1896. And Mr.
Bryan has repudiated it since then and
does not stand for it. (Laughter and
cheering.) They stood for it In 1896,
and repealed it in 1900, and they repu
diated it in 1904, and when it has
been repudiated by the party which
gave it birth why should we not re
pudiate it, too? (Laughter.)
to ln 1S92 the Republican party said
to them, "Come in and walk on the
sidewalk: you are down in the gut
ter." But they walked on and in 1896
Wm. J. Bryan pronounced his "Crown
of Thorns and Cross of Gold," and
they are trudging along there vet.
When we said to you that we could
give you back all that you had lost,
in some of us stamped the mud off your
feet and stepped high and drv upon
the platform of prosperity, but some
of you placed your hope in Bryan and
the Democratic party, and by and by
in 1896, the people of the United State's
just reached out and caught Idaho by
in- the scruff of the neck and set her in
to on the platform, and said: "Stand
there you little rascal, on the hope of
prosperity." And we rebelled just like
a bad child, but they said: "Stand
there on the walk; don't let us see vou
in off the walk again." Wool jumped
to from 6 to 16c; hav, cattle, horses,
grain, all come back to good prices
and they made us prosperous in spite
0 f ourselves. Most of vou are Strang

that for 14 years we never participât
