of the time.
Senators Cummins and Dolliver
and the insurgent delegation at
Washington were enthusiastically
The new tariff law was branded 4
as a failure In the light of the
party pledge of 1908.
President Taft received the
most tepid of lukewarm Indorse
ments. A sop of harmony was flung out
In the Indorsement of the admin
istration of Governor Carroll.
An attempt to use the "steam
roller" to make the state central
committee overwhelmingly pro-4
gresslve was tailed off, presuma-1
bly at hint of Senator Cummins.
T Senator Cummins was tempo- J
rary chairman; Senator Dolliver
permanent chairman.
The progressive majority ranged
close to 300 on every question.
The resolutions committee was
progressive, six to five.
The foregoing Is a synopsis of
..the convention events. To It may"
J ; be added cheers and Jeers, ap-"
pmuso ann nisses, music and
howls of discord.
Des Molues, Aug. 4. The Republic
an state convention was so completely
ia control of the progressive element
that it lost much of Us Interest to the
mass of the visitors. When the cau
cuses were held It was disclosed thut
the progressives hud control of six
of the cloven, though In one there
was a peculiar fight, which left the
matter in some doubt.
When the convention came up to
the first test vote It showed that the
progressive majority was upwurds of
235. The test came when two reports
were made for permanent chulnnon, a
majority report for Senator Dolliver
od a minority report for J. C. Mubry
of Albla. On the vote Dolliver re
ceived 831 votes and Mubry 649. Ten
Votes went for Dolliver that might
have been counted for the minority
candidate, but for a desire to aid a
candidacy for superintendent.
Senator Dolliver spoke briefly and
In good humor, but did not discuss Is
sues to any extent. The convention
gave to both Dolliver uud Cummins
geuerous applause, and especially
when reference was made to Roose
velt the convention became wild with
excitement. There was no show of
disapproval of anything said or done,
but the discussions were in the main
in good temper. TI10 platform com
mittee spent much tlmo In preparing
the two reports and in the meantime
the convention disposed of nil other
business. Judges Deemer and Evans
were renominated by acclamation. On
the first ballot for superintendent the
vote was: I loyoe, 3i4; Rlggs, 120',,;
Welty. 2 4 1 v. ; Mlnnlnger, 214; I.nrk,
ir.SKj; Hralnerd. 130Vj; Pickett, 187'i.
On the second ballot Deyoe led nnd a
greut many changes were made to
Deyoe until he was nominated.
Platform Flaht.
Then came the platform fight. The
majority report presented the progres
sive view and wns read' by Robert
lfealy of Fort Dodgo. Then Colonel
Hepburn read the minority report,
containing an extensive 'Indorsement
of President Taft. Moth reMrts re
ceived much npplnusn from the differ
ent sections of tho house. There was
no debate. When roll cull came tho
convention refused to substitute the
minority for tho majority report by a
vote of to 815. The platform
was then adopted.
During the balloting a picture of
Tnft was shown nnd It was innde the
occasion for n great show of approval.
Ijitcr n picture of Roosevelt wns
shown In lllio innnner nnd the other
crowd did the applauding.
An effort was made to force n vote
on the parts of tho resolution report,
nd' It finally got Into tho form of a
vote to sustain the claim Mint the
adoption fr the report could not ho
divided. There was another faction
division, with the usual result. The
platform was finally ndopted on a
nhort faction vote.
Following the adoption of the plat
form Just as presented by the maor
Ity, tho convention elected the mem
bers of the stute committee, who were
reported from the caucuses. At no
time during tho day was there tiny
nngry talk nnd everything wns ne
cepted as final. Few speeches were
mnde, both sides contenting ithein
Helves with a show of strength on tho
roll calls. A. M. Deyoe of Hancock
county, the cnndldnto for stnto super
intendent, is regarded as nn nble man,
Who will fill the office well.
During the week Taft clubs decided
upon continuing their organization
during the next two years and they
will maintain a headquarters and do
tome work Jn the campaign for some
9f the candidates for congress.
The Platform.
The majority report of the resolu
tions committee was as follows tn the
points of greatest interest.
The Republicans of Iowa, through
their delegates selected according to
the law of the state, make the follow
ing declaration of their views upon
public affairs:
They declare thut to deserve the
continued support of the people the
party should oppose by every means
in Its power any political encroach
ments or legislative Interference by
those who seek to reap extortionate
profits through the acquisition of un
just privileges.
They reaffirm their loyalty to the
Republican national platform of 1908,
and pledge themselves to do whatso
ever they can to carry every purt of
it into full effect. They especially em
phasize their long and well settled
faith In the Republican doctrine of pro
tection. Its soundness and wisdom are
beyond controversy and It ought to be
accepted as the established policy of
the nation. The last Republican na
tional platform announced with e'ear
ness and precision the rules for its
application to imports, and when so
applied it safeguards equal'y the in
terests of labor and capital, and pro
motes equally the wclfara of the pro
ducer and the consumer. They do not
recognize the revision of 1909 as a
satisfactory fulfillment of the party
Request for Tariff Board.
In order to bring the tariff law Into
a complete compliance with the rule
of the platform , It is necessary thut
the differences between the cost of
producing dutluble commodities at
home and abroad should be equal'y
known. Therefore they favor the crea
tion of an Independent, non-partisan
tariff commission, which shall be the
instrumentality of congress to ascer
tain the difference between the cost
of production here and in other coun
tries, and publish the facts so that not
only congress, but the people shall be
advised of the results of Its investi
gations. Until such a commission is
authorized they approve the effort of
the president to secure the desired In
formation through a board of experts
employed for that purpose. They pro
foundly believe that when the tariff Is
again revised Its schedules should be
considered so that ench subject can
be deolt with upon Its own merits, nnd
thus secure fair and Impnrtlnl action
upon the part of congress.
They indorse such efforts ns Presi
dent Tnft and his advisers have mnde
to fulfill the promises of the nntlonal
platform and which hove been In har
mony with the declarations gf this
Praise for Dolliver and Cummins.
They commend to the nation the
type of statesmanship exhibited by
Scnntors Dolliver nnd Cummins, and
they hcurtlly Indorse their work upon
tho tariff bill, the railroad bill nnd the
postal savings bill. The patriotic ef
forts of our senators to protect t!te
public rights from tho greed of special
interests In national legislation has
excited tho admiration of the country;
their attempt to secure tho largest
measure of equitable revision tn the
tariff law wns a Republican defense
of the people's welfare; their Insist
ence determined largely the beneficial
features of tho railroad law, and It Is
with pride thut the Republlcons of
Iowa recognize the contribution of
their chosen representatives to tho
welfare of the nation.
They commend the notion of the
house of representatives In revising
Its rules, glvlni; to the Individual
members n greater freedom of expres
sion and Initiative In the discharge of
his duty, and they Indorse the contri
butions of Iowa's representatives tc
this most Important reform.
The Republicans of Iowa are tho
best Judges of the Republicanism of
tho senators nnd representatives
whom they send to congress nnd they
resent any nttempt to exclude any of
thm from the honors nnd privileges
which properly attach to membership
In the Republican party.
On State Affairs.
Tn the administration of stnte af
fairs, n high degree of efficiency on
the pnrt of Governor Carroll nnd of
all of his ofndnl associates Justifies
the continued confidence of the people
In Republican control. Our Institu
tions have been enlarged In Reope and
Improved In chnructer nnd usefulness,
while the levy for state support Is be
ing reduced. All the Republican can
didates for stnte nnd congressional of
fice regularly nominated have to their
credit such excellent public service
and promise thut we call upon nil Re
publicans to rally to their support nnd
see that every man on the ticket is
triumphantly elected.
