DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL
THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN
Seldom If over before la tho history
of tho Republican, party has It been
jxmlblo to make in accurate a fore
cast of tho platform In advance of
the assembling of tho national con
vention as il" tho case this year. A
draft of tho platform was completed
weeks ago, after a series of White
House conferences among tho party
Senders, and If any changes are maJe
Joy tho committee on resolutions' they
iwlll bo of tho most minor character.
Aftern the usual expression of con-
ffldenco In the eternal principles' oft
itlio Requbllcan party, the platform
will specifically commend Theodoro
Itoosovolt, tho man, for his 'faithful
jodhoronco to tho policies of McKJnley
'ion his fearless discharge of tho dutlos
of Ills high office, for the Important
jpart ho played In the crisis of the an
thracite coal strike, anJ for represent
ing tho highest Ideals of American
The platform will then review tho
fforelgn relations of the United States
tundor President Roosevelt's adminis
tration, assorting that no function of
"Sila office renders an. untried' and) un-.safe-
president more liable to Involve
Jtho nation dni grave and inextricable
complications than tho administration
of its foreign affairs Among the
achievements of Theodoro Rooso
welt's administration will be enumer
ated tho accomplishment of Cuban
reciprocity and tho ratification of tho
reaty with Cuba which incorporates
tho Piatt amendment. The wl3e and
'conservative course of tho administra
tion in the Vonezulean affair, which
-resulted Jni tho mtet' signal recognl
'tion by tho foreign powers of tho
iloriroe doctrine, as an important
triumph for arbitration and In tho pro
jection of Venezuela's American cred
itors, will be so exhibited' as to throw
Hnto stiong contrast the Venezulean
message of President Cleveland.
The .settlement of the Alaskan
Tboundary dispute, another triumph for
JVmorlcan diplomacy and for arbitra
tion, accomplished by peaceful means,
under critical circumstances will bo
mado tho basis for further approval
of Mr. Roosevelt's -administration.
Thefiklllful and farseelng diplomacy
"Which effected tho negotiating and
ratification of tho treaty with China,,
whereby tho Unltod States in tho faco
of subtlo but poworful opposition, ac
quired treaty rights In Manchuria,
will bo cited In substantiation of the
assertion that Theodoio Roosovolt Is
an oxcoptlonal'y conservative and
Tho administration and congress
will bo warmly commended for tho
acquisition of tho Panama canal, tho
completion of which must nccruo so
largely to tho advantage of tho United
States and to tho world at largo.
Tho President will bo praised for
Ills successful enforcement of tho
Shormam antl trust law, which was
onactod by a Republican congroas ami
first appllo by a Republican Presi
dent. Spoclal attention will bo given
to tho phraseology of this plank of
tho platform. It will say In effect
that It Is not tho policy or Intontlon
op tho Republican party to assail
logltlmato Industry and' business or
to lufrlngo on tho rights of porsons
or propoity, but to attack only tlioso
monopolies which are In tho nature
of a conuplraey ngaliwt commerco.
Omteful comment on tho oxtin
ordinary prosperity of the nation will
bo followed by a biiof oontnut of ox
Isting conditions with tlioso of 18D3
ami by Uio'TUJsortlon that tho mone
tary system of tho nation Is now on
iiuch a stablu and satisfactory basis
thai men look back with wonder and
nmazomont whou they recall tho wild
vagnrlos and still wllilor Domocrntlc
theories of 1890.
Tho section of tho platform which
deals with protection will bo almost
ti ropllcu of the Massachusetts plank.
It will rend substantially as follews:
"Protection, which guards and de
velops our Industrie Is a cardinal
principle of tho Ropubllcnn party. Wo
InsM uMn the malntonnnco of this

Hut then there's (he four of tho pain
and diitioM that always follow.
Why not strengthen the stomach by
taking Hostottor's Stomach Ulttors
and bo nblo to onjoy your moak. It
la far abovo any othor modlclno as a
stomach atrengthonor and blood puri
fier and uovor fails to euro Poor Ap
potlte, Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Flatu

principle, but wo Tecognlzo that par
ticuiTar Jtariff schedules are notther
isacred nor Immutable Rates of duty
may' be altered wHen changed con
ditions demand their alteration, but
no revision should bo undertaken un
less it Is clear that the benefit will
more than compensate fon tho distur
bance of business which inevitably
attends a revision of tho tariff sched
u lea Nor can isnicli revision be in
trusted' with safety to any other than
the party of protection. To intrust
it to Iho Democratic party Is again to
invito tho Democratic disaster and
panic of 1893."
Other planks deal with tho nation's
debt to those who Imperilled their
lives for tho preservation of the Re
public, which will b,o declared to have
been faithfully paid; with the respon
sibilities Incurred by the treaty of
Paris, which will bo declared' to have
been sacredly kept, as wltnessthe
prosperity of Porto Rice and tho Phil
ippine Island's; with tho sacrednesb
of tho ballot, tho equality of all citi
'Hie lighting business is a profit
able ono for some people, at least,
and ospecjally for tho promoter.
It Is reported' that tho Salem elec
tric light, street car and gas plant
recently changed hands at $300,000.
Portland wholesalers bought It, and,
on the showing made, they consider
that they will mako bigger profits
than at wholesaling.
The deal was consummated by J. J.
Henry, and ho Is reported to have
Cleared ?50,000 on tho transaction.
He has added another laured to his
reputation as a promoter, andi is cer
tainly to bo ranked with the success
ful men of tho West.
This Is all very satisfactory to ev
erybody concerned, but the people
who pay tho bills. Salem consumers
of light are to pay still more profits
on watered values.
If tho public could get better and
cheaper light, and hotter street car
sorvlco, and If Salem1 could get exten
slon of linos, It might bo all right from
a municipal standpoint.
There would .still be the private
light consumer to bo reckoned with
He Is a factor to bo considered, and
Is very often overlooked.

You don't have to swelter for ten days waiting on a "merchant tailor "
when yott can slip into a stylish Schloss-made suit that costs one-half
the price he would charge you.
Bat there's always something more than price behind the clothing made by Schloss Bros. &
Co. There's vafoe, there's qaaltty, there's style, there's reliability and darability. And, too, there's
incomparable fit. What more does the most particular patron demand of the "merchant tailor?"
The Three-Button, double-breasted coat shown In tho picture Is designed
with an eye to comfort and coolness. It looks summery, but not negligee.
Indeed with this suit one Is dressed In the top notch of fashion. No vest'
Is worn, and the trousers are made with peg tops, cuff bottoms and belt
