Party Doctrine Most Popular De
nounce Makeshift Platform
Adopted at Chicago by the
Denver, July 8. Henry D. Clayton,
of Alabama, upon assuming the pernio -
nent chairmanship of the Democratic
convention, delivered an able address,
which Is In part, as follows:
Mr. Chairman and Fellow Demo
erats; Let me thank you for the
honor you have conferred upon me.
This is a Democratic year. Demo
cratic Ideas are 'now; popular. Doc
trines always taught by our party and
scoffed , at by our opponents are now
urged as a gospel of their own. Meas
ures and policies of Democratic origin
are now pretendedly advocated by the
leaders of the Republican party. U
is no longer anarchistic to de'aie
private monopoly to be indefensible or
that the great transportation compan
ies should be .governed and controlled
by public law. Former questioning of
the decision of a bare majority of the
supremo court in the income tax casJ
cannot now be hard, because of the
greater neoise of the vehement ati 1
embroidered denunciation of judges
and judicial acts that have shock;'.;
the country. A demand for revision of
the tariff is no longer a threat to de
stroy our industrial system. Trusts an
not to be tolerated even by the Repub
lican party. We need not now en
large on the list of Republican ad
missions and promises for elction pir
poses only. The Republican party
has made marked progress in prom
ises to the people and much greater
progress In aiding: selfish interests and
special privileges. This party, guide;
by expediency and campaign necessity
would camp this year on Democratic
Republican Responsibility.
The Republican parly having ha I
full control of the federal gnvernmei.'
for more than a decade must give an
account of Its stewardship. Us pre
tentious claims largely without foun
dation and largely exaggerated wll!
not suffice. Let honest investigation
reveal the bad and defective lawd
passed by that party; vicious policies
maintained; reforms rejected; the re
cent panic and Its consequences:
promises broken; dixslniilatlon prac
ticed; Incompetency confessed by lis
failures to meet urgent public needs;
and exhibiting this incompetency by
the appointment of junketing commis
nicns for the alleged purpose of ad
vising that party so long In contrrl
and of such boasted legislative wisdom
whnt legislation Is required by he
country. Against the Republic,-?;
party, so degenerate and crafty, Is a
capal.de determined honest Democ
racy, in sympathy with all Just pub
11c demands and asking Its behalf th'
candid public judgment. To that Judg
ment the issue must be committed and
we unhesitatingly submit our eaus ;
to that fine and true sense for th''
right we know distinguishes the Am
erican people.
My Policies.
In this quadrennial contest Mr.
Roosevelt has identified himself with
Mr. Taft. Mr. Taft has identified hin'
self with Mr.' Roosevelt. The Republl
can party- has inseparably identified
the two together. To praise one you
must praisa the oihev; to criticis
one Is to criticise his pursuing shadow
And so. I must say. If it should appea
to any. one that in noting and de
nouncing abuses and favors on th.
part of the prrsent administration an;
license is assumed, I urge the impos--'
billty of separating the present oceo
paut of the Whito House from hi-:
own" anointed one.
' It baa been made evident in tin
pending campaign that he RepubP
cans will seek to conjure with Hi
name of Roosevelt and will rely upon
the president's policies as a tn:r
ured asset. The president has adve
tised himself and his .policies with ;
frequency and ability that surpasses
the best efforts of the t-hrewd-t pies:,
agent. A distinguished Republican, ;.
former cabinet officer, one pnhiich
proclaimed the president to be th
greatest exponent of the art of advr
ttsing the world has ever known. Th
country has been told and not allowed
to forget that in his opinion his ener
gies have bee-n devoted to the accon
pllshment of many high purposes anil
that his work is yet incomplete it Is
eo only because his undertakings
were too vast to be carried to success
during his term of office. - "My poll
cics" must continue. So the cbampion
of these would transfer office and
power to his favorite cabinet minister
and hia spear Is to hsve a fellow. The
pretense 13 that the fight must go on
under the- leader designated by him
until the last fie shall have surrender
ed or lies Inglorious in the dust. The
nomination of his would-be successor
was largely accomplished by the use
-of official patronage and coarse ma
chine methods and has delighted the
chief apostle of strenuosity and at
the same time has not perturbed the
conscience of the one-time civil ser
vice reformer, now the boss and adept
in. the bestowal of public plunder and
jr-r-tlul ot U hi; rtcojndiri moral
commonplaces. No fair-minded Anier

the president. What are those policies
and what are the achievements of
president and party?
Mr. Clayton then reviewed unfavor
ably the administration of President
Roosevelt, and continued:
Injunction and Contempts of Court.
Let me go on. There has been and
Is now a public demand for legislation
regulating, not abolishing, the process
of injunction and the power of punish
for alleged indirect or eonstrtitivo con
tempts of courts. Kver since 1S!i! th
Democratic party have protest".,
against hasty and 111 considered use ol
injunctions and has been insisting on
the light of fair trial In all cases of
constructive contempts. The Rephb-j
lican party have been avoiding this!
question. So the president, in takin;;
it up, and Mr. Taft in his leitcr to
the labor unions advocated ft measure ;
that the Democrat!'- party, a. ling Pi
