Had Concluded Work to Re- . q . port to Main Committee. Denver, Col.. July 9.-Polit!cal carpen tera got to work early to-day in the hope of reporting a completed platform to the convention immediately after the speech of Permanent Chairman Clayton. At 8:30 the aub-committeo got together to receive report vn representative of th little subcommittee In charge of various planks. These held session during1 the night and agreed upon prac- tieally all the plank in question. Those on Injunction, railroad, currency and trusts were yet to be agreed upon when tho general subcommittee met. Among tho proposition practically certain to' be adopted were the follow ing! approval of enti-paa and anti rebate law, prohibiting corporation from making campaign contribution and . providing lor publicity; election of Unit ed State senator by direct popular vote; recommendation of a constitution al amendment permitting an income tax, cnlargment of the power of the railroad commissions, state and national, favor ing postal savings banks, adjustment of dispute ebtween capital and labor, urg ing an employers' liability bill applica ble to both public and private employ ers, putting wood pulp on the free list, exclusion of Asiatics, an anti-Injunction plank, requiring a notice before issuance, reduction of the tariff on trust-made goods and a general revision of the tariff to restore it to a revenue basis, admis sion of Arizona and New Mexico as sep arate states, denunciation of the Aldrich, Vreeland curerncy bills and rccommen- dation of an emergency to be issued by the federal government to national bank under proper guarantee, extermi nation of' trusts, enactment of a law preventing duplication of director among competing corporations, a license , y '. system to protect tho public from, wa tered stock and prohibiting control by any corporation of more than fifty per 1 cent, of the total of any production in , the United State. - ":-":"'' : Tariff. . - . "We favor the immediate revision of ' the tariff, by a reduction of import du ties on articles entering into competition with articles controlled by trusts should be Ipaced upon the free list. Material reduction should lie made in the tariff 'upon the necessities of life, especially upon article competing with such Amer ican manufacturers as are sold abroad "'cheaper, than at home, and a graduated ' reduction should be made in such of the V " old schedule as may be necessary to restore the tariff to revenue basis. "Kvery consideration of public policy suggests the conservation of the wood lands, and the removal of those import duties which put a premium upon the destruction of forests. The existing du tiea have given to thi! paper manufac turers a shelter behind which they have organized combinations to raise the price of pulp and paper and to impose a tax upon our ':' knowledge. The revenue de ' rived from import duties on pulp and printing paper is so small and the bene fits to be obtained from the abolition of these duties are so considerable that we endorse the attitude of the Demo cratic representatives in Congress who unanimously favor placing pulp and printing paper, lumber, logs,, woods and timbers on the free Ust. Asiatic Immigration. - , "We favor full protection by both na tional and state governments within their respective territories of all foreign ' " residents residing in. the United States under 20 years old, but we are opposed - to the admission of Asiatic immigrants who cannot be amalgamated with, our population or whose presence among us would raise a race issue and involve the United States in diplomatic controver sies with Oriental powers, and we de mand a stricter enforcement of tho im migration laws against immigrants who advocate assassination as a means oi re form of the government. Navy. "We hold for a constitutional provi sion that the navy shall be provided and maintained; it means an adequate navy, nn.l we believe that the interests of tiiis coutnry would best be served by having a navy able to protect and defend at onee the coast of this country. We be lieve neither coast in the future ahouht be left without adequate protection in the form of a licet and time American citizens should be protected in their rights whenever they are in jeopardy. , Economy in Administration. The appropriation by the Republican , Congress m the session ju ewled amounted to $1,008,000,000 and the ap propriation exceeded the total expen diture of the last fiscal Tear by $i)0,- 0()0.000. We denounce the hecdles aste of the people's money which has rt'Milted in this shameful violation of all prudent consideration of the gov eminent and as no less than a crime ngint the millions of wnrkingmen and women from whose earnings a great nroimrtinn of these eollosal sum must ue extorted through excessive tariff and it her Indirect method.

JJAlUtE, DOCKS SWEPT BY FLAMES Loss of $1,500,000 at East Boston Last Evening AND ONE AAN WAS KILLED Fire Started Either From Locomotive Spark or From Spontaneous Com bustion Made Rapid Progress Along Water Front ' Boston, July 0. The East Boston harbor front wa swept by fire last niuht to tho extent of $1,000,000 dam age, the conflagration starting either from spontaneous combustion or from a locomotive spark. The Boston A Al bany railroad wa the chief loser. Dan iel Sullivan, a watchman at the Cun- ard iir, U reported missing. The fire wa the most destructive that ha occurred along the harbor front in many year. The flame spread with remarkable rapidity, and by tho time the first firo lighting apparatus arrived the fire was beyond control, and leap ing from pier to pier. Within an hour after the first burst cf flame was discovered four piers, three warehouses, a grain elevator con taining :i0.000 bushels of grain and many loaded freight car had been de stroyed. . ' Several vessels and lighters narrowly rncaped destruction. The big Ieyland line steamer Davonian, wa moored at one of the pier - which wa destroyed, but the craft wa-warpej out into the tieam without sustaining any damage. Less fortunate wa the British bark Belmont of Yarmouth. N. 8. The Bel mont was moored by the pier where the fire started. By the time the vessel was moved to a place of safety her superstructure and rigging had been practically destroyed. The five masted sehooner Paul Palmer and tho four masted sehooner O. H. Brown were con kUlerably damaged. The burned area includes piers 1 and 'J of the Grand Junction docks, and the fier on which stood the big grain ele vator,' all owned by the Boston 4 Al bany railroad company and used by the steamers of the Cunard line and pier six, owned by the Leyland line. the fire started at 4:1J p. m., in the warehouse of ' pier" I.' Grand .Junction docks. In this warehouse' was stored an immense quantity of combustible material, including wool, Egyptian cot ton, grease, oil. ' First a slight burst of fiame was seen, then a cry was raised nrd three minutes later the entire ware house from end to end v. as a mass of flames.' At the time the fire was dis covered there wrre about 100 laborers at work on the pier, and with all of them it was a race for Iil4. ' Fortunately the wind was blowing off shore and the flumes did not work back from the water front. Hud the wind blown from almost any other quarter " with, the san intensity it is prol table that Kast Boston would have suffered the fate' which befell the ad joining city of Chidaea last April. On account of the proximity of the fire to its East Boston ferry slips, the ferry boats of the "narrow gauge" road, suspended '. operations completely, mak ing it impossible for thousands of sub urbanites living in Winthrop, Revere and Lynn,' to reach, their homes, while thousands of others who had been en joying a day's outing at the beach re sorts were unable to return to tho city until a late hour last night. ABOUT 600 OUT OF WORK. Cunard and Leyland Lines and' New York Central Workers' Hard Hit. , Boston, July f.r-The wiping out of the entire Mater front of Kast Bos ton, so far as foreign steamship trade and traffic is concerned, and the des truction of so many valuable buildings of the New York Central railroad, comes as a severe blow, to the workers of the lailroad company and the Cunard and Leyland steamship companies. Last night it was estimated that about, 600 men .were thrown out of work, tem porarily at least. The subsequent hard ship and sufferings will come particu larly hard on the families of the freight handlers and longshoremen who reside in F'ast Boston. A day or two previous to the arrival and sailing of steamers at the Cunard and Leyland lines it was stated last night that about yoo longshoremen are engaged at tho dock of both the Ley land and Cunard companies. There is an office force of about 40 men at the Cunard company and about the same number " at the Leyland line. It is be lieved that many of these men will find employment wherever the steamship company's vessels may" doek. The hardest blow of all will come to the office force and the' freight hand ler of the New York Central. It is not thought that there will bo Bliy work for them until the grand Junction docks are again built.
