of his cabinet still believed In the groat I
desirability of an International agree

standard, but that It did not soem i
opportune to re-npou the negotiations
Just then. The financial law euaeatod i
less than a year ago contains a run- :
eluding section declaring that the

platform submitted to the lost Repub

ot the administration aguln suggested
the possibility of securing foreign aid
In restoring silver.
Now the Uepui'llcnti party, for th
first time, openly abandon it ad

the Dlngley tariff law. when It bun
demns It as a 'trust breeding measure,
skillfully devised to give to the f w

observed the friction whleh arises be

arbitration ought to be supported as

lUportmsnt ot Itxr,
I cannot too strongly emphasize tht
Importance ot tho platform recom
mendation of the establishment ot a
department ot labor, with a member
of the cabinet al Ita head. When we
remember how Important a position
the laborer fills In our economic, so
cial and political fabric. It Is hard to
conceive of n valid objection boJng
made to this recognition ot his serv
ice. Agriculture la already represent

dnitgei. and at great sacrifice of btisl

service to their country.

which prompted their passage. The

The Democratic iwriy is in favor of
the Immediate construction, ownership

with the substitution In Its latest pint

The doctrine euiinrlaled by Monroe,

is essential to the welfare of ta
United flutes. The continents ot
North ami Ion lb America are dedica

archist Idea has barely a foothold In

While It la not the policy of this
country to Inierfere where amicable
relations exist between hntropetm

America, our people would look with
disfavor upon any attempt on the part
of Nuropean governments to maintain
an unwilling or forcible sovereignty
over the people living on this side of
