Doctrines always taught by our party
and scoffed at by our opponents nro
now urged as a gospel or their own.
Measures" and policies or Democratic
origin aro now pretondedly advocated
by tho leaders or tho Republican par

declare private monopolies to be ln
defeiiBiblo or that the great transporta
tion companies should bo regulated
and controlled by public lay. Former
questioning of the decision d! n bare
majority of tho supremo court In tho

because of tho greater nolso of tho vo

of Judges and Judicial acts that have
shooked the country. A demand for
t)io revision of the' tariff Is no longor
n throat to deploy our Industrial
system. Trusts nro not to bQ tolerat

need not now enlarge on the list df
(Republican admissions and promises

publican party has mado marked pro.
gross In promise, to the peoplo and
much greater progress In aiding sel
fish Interests and special privileges.

lit has been mado evident In the

best efforts of tho shrewdest press ag
