Ilepiitilfrrtti Ctiallciijrc Arrrptcri. Tho distinguished atatosmnn who orecolvcd tho Hopubllcan uomitmtlon for President said, In Ills notllleu tlon speech t "Tho strength of tho Rotmhllrnn rnuso In tho campn'mi nt hand Is tho fact thot wo rnprewtiit, tho pol'clos osientlal to tho reform of known abuses, to tho enntlnunnro of liberty and true nrosperlly and that wo are determined, a our platform m cqulvocu'lv declaroH to mnlntnln thoh and carry them on.' In th) nnuio of the nomocrntlc Jarty I accept tho rhnllongn and chnrgo that tho Renubllcnu pnrtr is responsible for all the nhusoi which nov oxlst In tho federal Rovornmont. and this It the most tmuortant to nc cOHUilinh reforms which nro com- jMYAtlvoly newled.

"Vhnt nn ar raignment of the predatory interests, Is tho President's Indictment true? And, If true, against whom was the Indictment directed? Not ngalnst tho Democratic party. Mr. Taft I-Jndom tho Indictment. Mr. Taft says that those cvlU hnvo crept In during tho laot ten yearn. Mo doclnres. Mint, during this tlmo, some "prominent nnd Influen tial membors of tho community, spurred by financial success nnd In their hurry for greater wealth, be came unmindful of tho common, rule of business honesty nnd lldollty, nnd ot the limitations" Imposed by law upon their actions," and "tho rov elatlons of tho breaches of trust?, ihn disclosures. as to rebates and ills criminations by railroads, tho ac cumulating evidence of tho viola tions of tho anti-trust lnws; by a number of corporations, nnd the owir-lssuo of storks nnd bonds of In torstato rnllrondi for the unlawful enriching of directors nnd for tho purpose of roncontrnting tho con trol of tho railroads under ono man agement," nil those, ho rhnrgc "quickened tho rnnnclonre of the people nnd brought on n moral nwnk onlng." During all ttfln time, I beg to remind you, Hopubllcan otllclals. presided In the exJcntlvo department, filled the cabinet, dominated tho son nto; controlled the house of repre sentatives and occupied most of tho federal Judgeships. Four years ago tho Republican platform boastfully declared that since 1800 with the exception of two years the Repub lican party had beon in control of part or of all tho branches of the federal government; that for two years only was the Democratic party In a position to either enact or re peal a law. Having drawn tho sal arles; having onjoyed the honers: having reeured tho prestige, let tho Republican party accept tho respoiu party will bo obligated uy campaign contributions from tho faarichcfiirrcs' o7 protection, as to mn'ktflh'h't pitrtv powerless to bring to tho country arSy material relief from, tho present tar iff burdens. f Why No Anti-Trnst legislation? A few years ago the Republican leaders In thejiopso of representa tives were coerced by puhTlc opinion Into tho support of nn nntt-truBt law1 which had tho ondorsomenfof' tho President, but tho' Benftto refused" even to conIdcr tho mensuro, and slnco that time no effort hns been mado by tho dominant party to so cure remedial legislation upon thH subject. "Why 'No LegtMatlon? For ton years tho Interstate com- 'morco commission has beon asking for nh, enlargement of its po'wcrs, thnt It might prevont rebate's htul discriminations, hut n Republlc'flu sonato nnd n Republican Miou&'o of representatives were unmovtfd by Its entreaties. In 1000 tho Republican nntionnl convention wns urged to en dOrso tho demand for rnilway legis lation, but its plntform was silent on tho Biibjoct. Evon In 1004, tho con vention gnvo no plcdgo to remedy these abuses. Whon tho President finally risked for legislation, ho draw would compel honesty Jtt cloctlons. rWhcn the matter was brought up In tho recent Republican national con vention, tho plank was .repudiated by a vote of 880 to 04. Here, too. Mr. Taft has beon driven to apologise for his convention npd then to de clare himself In, favor of n publicity law; andVot, If you will jcad what jio says upon this subject, you will find thnt his promise foils far hort of tho requirements of tho situnt'on Ho says: "If I am elected President, I shall urge upon congress, with o.m,,Honl amendment had ifrom tltae-to. flmo WBUggcstaJ jjna ;the. mAttbr had been more or u.n cuased In a few of the states but .fb movement had not' reafhed a pdlat yiixiro It BiAnlfC8tod ,t80't ttiroih congressional action.

Tho U. S. senate, how over, Impudently and nrrognntly ob structs tho passage of the resolution, notwithstanding tho fact thnt ho voters of tho U. S. hy an overwholnj- :? refusal Is the more significant when it is remembered that a number of senators owe their election to great corporate Interests. Thrco Democratic nntionnl plat forms the platforms of 1000,1904 nnd 1908 specifically call for n change in tho constitution which will put tho election of senators. In every hope of success, that a law bo ing majority, demand It.
