The prealdont'a close friends have been
promising for several yeara that he would
attack the inequltire of the tariff. We have
had Intimation that Mr. Taft waa restive
under the demand of the highly protected
ItiduetiHjt. And yet the Influence of the
manufacturers, who have for twenty-five
yeara contributed to the republican cam
paign fund, and who tn return have framed
the tariff schedules, haa been aufflclent to
prevent tariff reform. Aa the present cam
paign approached, both the preaident and
Mr. Taft declared In favor of tarlfr re.
vision, but set the date of the revision after
the election. Rut the pressure brought to
bear by the protected Intereata haa been
great enough to prevent any attempt at
tariff reform before the election, and the
reduction promised after the election
la so hedged about with qualifying phree.
that no one can eatlmate with accuracy
the aum total of tariff reform to be ex

fused even to consider th measure, and
alnce thai time -no effort haa been mede
by the dominant party to aecure remedial
legislation upon thla aubject.
For ten yeara the Interstate Commerce
commlaMon haa been asking for an en
largement of Its powers, that It might
prevent rebatea and dlacrimtnatlona, but a
republican aenate and a republican house
of representative were unmoved by its
entreaties. In IWO the republican national
tonventlnn waa urged to endorse the de
mand for railway legislation, but Ita rlet
form waa ellom on the subject. Kven In

remedy these abuses. When the preaident

contrlbutlona and expenditures; but tht re
publican leadera, even In the fait of an
Indignant public, refused to consent to a
law which would compel honesty In elec
tions. When the matter whs brougtit up
In the recent republican national conven
tion, the plank waa repudiated by a vote
of 80 to M. Here, too, Mr. Taft has been
driven to apologise for bis convention and
to declare himself In favor of a publicity
law; and yet. If you will read what he
saya upon this subject, you will find that
his promise falls far short of the require
ments of the situation. He says:
"If I am elected president, 1 ahall urge
upon congress, with every hope of success,
that a law be passed requiring the filing.
In a federal office, of a statement of the
contributions received by committees and
candidates in elections for members of con
gress, and in such other electlong at art
constitutionally within tht control of con
gress." I shall not embarrass him by asking him
I upon what he bases his hope of. success;
u is ceriamiy not on any encourattemeni
he has received from republican leaders.
It Is sufficient to say that if his hopea
were realised If, In spite of the adverse
Bctlon of his convention, he should suc
ceed In securing the enactment of the very
law which he favors, it would give but
partial relief. He has read the democratic
platform; not only hla lunguage, but hla
evident alarm. Indicates that he has read
It carefully. He even had before him the
action of the democratic national commit
tee In interpreting and applylrg that plat
form; and yet. lie. tans to say that he
favors the publication of the contributions
before the election. Of courte, it satisfies
a natural curioalty to find out how an
election haa been purchased, even when the
knowledge comes too late to be-of service,
but why should, the people be kept In dark
ness until tho t-lection Is past? ' Why
should the locking of the door be delayed

K ' Kleetfoa a Pablle Affair.
An election Is a public affair. The people,
exercising the right to eelect their officials
and to decide upon tht policies to bo
pursued, proceed to their several polling
places on election day and register their

pecuniarily lo'ereated in "concentrating

candidate, speaking of tht election of sena
tors by the people, says; "Personally, I am
Inclined to favor it. but it la hardly a nartv
question." Wiiat la neceeary to makt this
a party question? When the democratic
convention endorsee a proposition by a
unanimous vote, and the reDublicaji con.
vention rejects the DroDOsl'ion hv a vote
of seven to one, does It not become an Issue
between the parlies? Mr. Taft can not
remove the question from the arena of
pontics by expressing a oersonal inclina
tion toward the democratic position. For
several years ho has been connected with
the administration. What haa ht ever laid
or dont to bring this question before the
public? What enthusiasm has he shown In
tut reformation of the senate? What Influ
ence could he exert In beualf of a reform
which his party has openly and notoriously
condemned in ita convention, and to which
ht is attached only by a belated expression
of personal Inclination?
"Shall the people rule?" Every remedial
measure of a national character must run
the gauntlet of the aenate. The president
may personally incline toward a reform;
the house may consent to It; but as long
aa the aenate obstructs the reform, the peo
ple must wait. The preaident may heed
a popular demand; the houae may yield to
public opinion; but a long as the senate is
defiant, tha rule of tht people la defeated.
Tlie democratic platform very properly de
scribes the popular election of -senators as
"the gateway to other national reforme."
Shall we open tha gate, or shall we allow
the exploiting Interest to bar the way by
the control of thla branch of the federal
legislature? Through a democratic victory,
and through a democratic victory oniy, can
tlie people secure tlie popular elecUon of
senators. The smaller parties are unable
to secure -this reform; the republican party,
under Its. present, leardershlp. Is resolutely
opposed to it; the. democratic party standa
fur it and has boldly demanded it. If I am
elected to the presidency, those who are
elected upon the ticket with me will be, like
myself, pledged to this reform, and I ahall
convene congress In extraordinary aetaion
Immediately after Inauguration, and ask.
among other things for the fulfillment of
mis piatrorm pledge.
House Rales Despotic.
The third Instrumentality emDloved to
defeat the will of the people la found In the
ruies oi tne house ot representatives,
uur platform points out thui "the house
of representatives was des.gned by the
tamers or tne constitution, to be the pop
ular branch of uur government, responalve
to the public will," and adds:
llie house of representatives, as con
trolled iu lecent yeara by the republican
party, has ceased to be a deliberative' and
legislative body, responsive to the will of
a majority ot the members, but has come
under the absolute domination of the
speaker, who haa entire control of lta de
liberations, and powers ot legislation.
we have observed witn ainasetnent the
popular branch of our federal government
nelDlesa to obtain either tht consideration
or enactment of measure desired by
majority of Its members.
This arraignment ia fully Justified. The
reform republicans in the house or repre
sentalives, when in the minority In their
own party, are as helpless to obtsin a
heurlng or to secure a vole upon a measure
aa are the democrats, in the recent tes
Ion of the present congress, there waa a
considerable element in the republican
party favorable to remedial legislation;
but a few leadera. In control of the organ
lzation, despotically suppressed these mem
bers, and thus forced a real majority in
the house to submit to a well organised
minority. The republican national conven
tion. Instead of rebuking thia attack upon
popular government, eulogized congress
and nominated aa the republican candidate
for vice president one of the men who
shared In the responsibility for the coercion
of the houae. Our party demands that
"the house of representatlvea shall again
become a deliberate body, controlled by
a maiorltv of the people s representatives
and not by the apeaker," and Is pledged to
adopt "such rules and regulations to gov
ern the house of representatlvea as will
enable a majority of lta members to Street
Its deliberaliona and control legislation."
"Shall the people rule?" They can not
do ao unleaa they ran control-til houae of
representatives, and througn their repre
aentativea In the houae, give expression
to their purposes and their desires. The
republican party la committed to the
methods now in vogue in the house of
representatives: the democratic party la
pledged to Buch a revision of the rulea as
will bring the popular branch of the fed
eral government Into harmony with tha
Idea of thoae who framed our constitution
and founded our government.
