It baa fostered ererythiBf that haa tended to make the country groat and prosperous. It baa aoved with the people. It haa kept abreast of the times. It haa ever stood ready to modify an old policy or to adopt a saw one when the business Interests of the country have needed the modifica tion or the change. It has protected American industries. It has protected American labor by stringent immigra tion laws. It protected tbo credit and business stability of tbo country by prompt declaring in favor of a gold standard, and writing it in the stat utes When the time came It prompt ly seised upon the time and the op portunity to begin the speedy construc tion of the great Isthmian canal. It baa never hesitated to assume a re sponsibility. When the cruelties in Cuba threatened the Interests of Amer ica the Republican party resolved to put an end to those cruelties. When trusts sprang up it enacted law to curb and control those trusts. When commerce was at the mercy of the railroads. It provided for a commission to regulate them. When shippers were oppressed by transportation companies It promptly enacted a rate law. It has met every emergency In war or peace, met It In a wise, prudent and states manlike manner. It is progressive when progresslveness means upbuilding. It is conservative when conservatism means the maintenance of peace, order and prosperity. It has been prompt without undue haste. Peace and pros perity at home—honor and respect abroad has been. Is now, and always will be Its motto.—Republican National Platform CAMPAIGN EXPENDITURES. Democratic Party Cannot Claim Un sullied Virtue as to Souroe of Its Revenues. (From Gov. Hughes' Toungstown Speech.) "Mr. Bryan also has much to say with regard to corrupt practices and campaign expenditures. But he omits to give doe credit to the Republican party for what It baa accomplished with regard to these Important reforms, an accomplishment the more notewor thy in the ligbt of Mr. Bryan's reiter ated criticisms of contributions to Re publican campaign funds. In the State •f New York a Republican Legislature In 1906 passed a statute prohibiting corporations from making any political contributions directly or Indirectly, and providing that officers, directors or stockholders participating In or con senting to the violation of the law should be guilty of a criminal offense. And I know of no more drastic statute In this country with regard to the pub licity of campaign contributions and for the prevention of corrupt practices than that passed in New York under Republican auspices. These were not promises of an opposition party seek ing power, but enactments by a party In power securing genuine reforms. Proper recognition must, of course, be given to the patriotic Democrats who supported these reforms, but they wers enacted by a Republican administra tion. Congress has also legislated •gainst political contributions by cor porations Purity of elections and free opportunity for the uncorrupted expres sion of the popular will lie at the foun dation of every reform and cannot be too carefully safeguarded. And there should be federal legislation securing proper publicity of and accounting for campaign contributions in connection jvltb federal elections. But it musl fairly be recognized that the sklrtB of neither party bavs been clean. If we search Mr. Bryan's following we shall find not a few who bave sinned, and also those who. if we may Judge from their local activities, are still unrepent ant. The Democratic party cannot claim unsullied virtue either with re gard to the source of its revenues or its readiness to receive them." LABOR IN DEMOCRATIC STATES. Coal Miners in Alabama Subjugated Into Cringing Dependencies. That there's a "rift within the lute" of the Gompers proposition to dolivei the labor vote of the country to Dem ocracy is becoming more apparent. While Mr. Bryan anrl Mr. Gompers are making special appeals to labor, neither refers to the deplorable condition of laber in the Democratic South. Mr. John I'. White, for «-ix year? pvsideet I of the Iowa T'nitcd Mine Workers, nud now one of the national officers of the United Mine Workers' Asoc'.ntion. who Investigated mining labor conditions in the South, is not so reticent. In a re cent address to Local Union Xo. 07 of Albhi, Iowa, he told of persecutions of labor in Alabama whore a coal miners' strike was in progress. He is reported as saying: "The miners of Alabama bave been subjugated until a majority bave become cringing dependencies. Al most daily some of the laboring men of that State were mercilessly shot down for daring to assert their rights as American citizens. Ninety-one members of the Mine Workers* Association were thrown into Jail without havitg com mitted any crime other than becoming members of the organization." Ala bama Is a State absolutely nndtr tool of Bryan Democracy.
