I\ Two wars have caused the whole

possessions which bring us within

The Honorable William H. Taft has
been one of the chief advisers and
strongest advocates of the Republican
administration policy during this for
„j| matlve and historic period. He has
Jg been a pioneer, not only along the lines
of statecraft, which have had for their
E object the development of our western
states, but he has given particular at
tentlon to the situation in the Orient
with reference to the future commerce
between those far away countries and
I the Pacific coast of America.
In his own inimitable way and unit
lng a unique personality with the high
est authority as a diplomat, he poured
oil on the troubled waters in Japan
and changed the political storm there
raging, into a placid sunshine of pence.
In China he created such enthusiasm

with the belief on their part that the

body of influential merchants, diplo

^Mr. Taft spoke in part as follows:
"We do not complain of loss of trade

fj$,great enterprise, ingenuity or attention
••^•.to the demands of the Chinese market,
or the greater business acumen shown

from the trade of China by reason of
our insistence of the policy of the

been so unhesitating and emphatic
that It Is hardly worth while to specu

Father ot tkc llllfflaMt
Mr. Taft is in a sense the father of
the Philippines. It has been his kindly,
constructive statesman's hand that
evolved order out of their original
ohfioa. In his report submitted to Con
gress. as a result of his visit to the
Philippines to be present at the opening
of their first Assembly, he made four
recommendations. First—action by Con
gress admitting to the United States
Philippine products under such condi
tions that they would not Interfere
with American tobacco and sugar in
dustries second, the removal of re
strictions as to acquiring mining claims
and lands third, further legislation
authorizing the government to carry
on an agricultural bank, which is now
authorized only as a private enterprise
fourth, the repeal of the law applying
to the Islands the coastwise laws of
the United States.
Philosophy mi DmtopaMt
Our nation has grown by obeying the
instinct -of development. We are to-day
entitled to be called Greater America,
but that greatness will be lost If we
forget the political philosophy which
has made us great—expansion of Amer
ican thought, territory, mechanical skill,
civilization and philosophy. This Is an
auspicious time for the creation and de
velopment of our export trade. The un
explored and undeveloped markets of
Asia furnish the opportunity. All other
fields have been otx*upled, and to at
tempt to wrest them from other nations
would be of doubtful expediency. In
the Orient the commercial possibilities
exceed the dreams of the optimist.
Are the American people ready to
abandon such a situation and leave it
to the mercy of the Democratic party
with its failure of fifty yeara looking
at us from the past?
In a business sense the young voters
who have come forward since 1SM)4 have
more at stake than any other class in
rendering a right decision. Their ac
tive lives are ahead. They have more
years to live, and are now laying the
foundations of their business careers.
National policies and conditions are of
tho highest consequence to them. Per
haps they are farmers. If so, let them
ask the older generation how farmers
fared under the last Democratic admin
lstratlon. Let them take the market
reports of to-day and compare them
with the prices that prevailed when Mr.
Bryan made his crusade for free silver
and hurled defiance at President Cleve

standard. At the same time Bryan do

"This convention declares that the
opening of a deep channel way con

of Mexico to be an imperative duty of
the general government and that this
work should be immediately begun
and oompleted as speedily as possible.
"Any plan for Inland waterway de
velopment should comprise a main
trunk line in the form of a strait con
necting Lake Michigan with the Gulf
of Mexico by the Illinois and Missis
sippi r^ers. The improvement of the
branches of this main line, such as the
Upper Mississippi, with its tributaries,
the Ohio with its tributaries, includ

taneously with the development of the

"The deep waterway is practically

Louis wiii coat only 1,000 000. The
state of Illinois, assuming that the
federal government will take the re

way to the gulf, is about to co-operate
to the extent of 820,000,M0.
"A special board of survey was cre

made congress shall at once provide

are utterly inadequate and it is stat

that the development of railway fa

leading railway authorities declare
that water transportation must be de

and promptly.
"Under the Constitution the regula
tion of commerce between the states
devolves on the general government
and neither states nor private capital

tion to assume these duties.
"The duty therefore devolves on the
general government to give the coun

by developing the navigable water

by congress at once and the water
ways should be made efficient freight
carriers, otherwise the United States
