The democracy ui .Nebraska in con

legiance to the fundamental principles
ot the party as-enunciated In tne state
and national platforms of lvue.
We point with, pride to tlio leadership
cf thedemocracy of Nebraska has taken
wit in n tue lastqiiarter of a century in
relorms already accomplished, as- well :
as tbos that are lu process of accomp- ,
lishment. It was the voice ot Nebraska
demonciacy that pleaded persistently
and In the face of great discouragement
for tha election of senators by the peo
ple, for the Income tax, for tariff re
vision In the Interests of the consumers,
for the free listing of the products of
the trusts, for the publicity ot oampalgn
fund - receipts and expenditures, . for
guarantee of bank deposits, for th '
regulation of railroads, for the sup
port of the rights of the states, and
the preservation of the general govern-.
merit in Its Whole constitutional vigor,
for the prevention of the establishment
of a twf-llght ton between the nation'
and Ihe state, ,ln which exploiting In
terests might takfc refuge from both;
for th preservation of our constitu
tional ''form, without Impairment
through legislation by oourts or othr
wlse; for the vindication of the truth
that a private monopoly Is Indefensible
and Intolerable, and finally for the:
broad democratic dootring that the peo
ple may safely b entrusted with the
control of their own government.
We coigTatlate'the nation that dem
ocratic principle - are rapidly winning
favor In all sections of the country, and
with fair-minded men of all parties.

We view with pride the splendid
qualities of : faithful - leadership dis

The record that has been made In

i democracy Is ant Hied to rule because of

capable "of legislating or governing. The
democratic house of representatives has
met and disproved that accusation.
"For -forty, years republican- farmers had
been deluded by the notion that the pro
tective tariff was-of benefit to them. Those
who studied, the question from an economic
and not a political standpoint knew that
this -so-called protection waa a mere means
of deceiving the republican farmer and get
ting hla - vote for-, these Industries, that
robbed the many for the benefit of the few.
'The fraud, became so transparent that
even a republican president of the most
standpat character refused to stand tor it
longer. He well knew that If the American
farmer had any competitor It was the
Canadian farmer, and with knowledge of
this fact the .president proposed a law ad
mitting tho principal agricultural products
of Canada to our markets on a free trade
basis. By this ; measure the - American
farmer is subjected to competition with his
only real competitor.
'Instantly the republican politicians be
gan to ctamof against the action of their
own president1. They ptesent no legitimate
arguments 'against 'the reciprocity bill, but
the shrewd ones tiohg -them realise that
u soon as the-'mrlnar ha the -wool pulled
from over lisr eyws; as soon as he can see
that he has" to sell all -his products on a
free trade' basis, that he will help tear down
the entire tariff wall. - ' .
"And In this the wily republican politi
cians are making no mistake. -As soon a
th: delusion is removed from the eyes of
the farmers of the northwest, the protec
tive tariff is' doomed. The ' moment that
the reciprocity bill becomes a - law It Is
safe to predict that 89 per cent of the farm
ers of these prairie states will be in favor
of that splendid democratic measure known
as the farmer fre list.
' Brag: Aboot Nebraska.
"Leavlnrtho domain of national politics,
we find in Nebraska much to congratulate
ourselves upon. The democratic platform
adopted a year ' ago at Grand ' Island,
pledged our legislative candidates' to 'sub
mit to the people certain vital and valuable
amendments to tne state constitution.
"We promised to submit an amendment
providing for the Initiative and referendum,
and we faithfully kept that pledge. 'Wi
promised an amendment providing that
elections should be held only once In two
years Instead of annually, as now, thereby
saving the people from political turmoil
and the taxpayers from a large expense.
That platform pledge has been faithfully
kept by our democratlo legislature. -
"We promised to submit an amendment
giving to the larger cities of the state
the right of local control of their affairs.
That amendment has also gone to the
people for ratification.
"The only national politics of any signif
icance In this year's election In Nebraska
Is the fight between Taft and La Follette.
No matter which of the republican candi
dates for supreme Judges shall be success
ful at the primaries, all three will be sup
porters of Taft. XL three will be opposed
to La FoUette.
"I am sur that, if all th republicans of
Nebraska could be got out at the primaries
to express their preference between Taft
and La Follette, that La Follette would
win by ia overwhelming majority. But
the friends ot La Follette are mostly
among the plain people, while Taft' sup
porters are among the corporations and
polltii liana. These latter classes are always
out on primary day, while, unfortunately,
too many of the; plain people remain at
Plead for I as orgeat Help.
"Hut the thin; it want to make dear to
th La Follette republicans is this; That
If tha ' republican candidates for Judges
'jl the supreme court are elected in No
v ember, the standpatters In Nebraaka and
elsewhere will claim their election aa a
Taft victory, . If the La FoUette repub
licans want to secure a La Follette dele
gation from Nebraska next year, then the
thing for them to do lk to defeat these
Taft republicans for Judges of tha supreme
court and help us elect the oentocrat ticket.
"One thing further 1 wish to suggest
to the oouvsnuon. it relates not in re
ality to this year, but to next and 1 sug
gest it at 'this time that there may be
abundant time for discussion and eonald
atlon. I 'refer to the water power of th
state. The grabbing of water power by fa
vorite has ' been one of the disgraces ot
Tuft's administration. It haa blackened
more than one reputation. Covetou men of
wealth are patching out for the ooatrei
of our water power for water power la th
end, la th oheapeel of all power,
This t the electric age and nothing
enables a to use electricity so cheaply a
the use of water power, Nebraska has
many streams- which ar capable of pro
ducing valuable water power. Ail should
be eoneerved to- the state aad not farmed
out lo private- corporations,
"Lt us not be aa the republicans, afraid
to trust the people to auanage their owa
business; to control aad operate) their owa
water powera ' Let us not be afraid, aa
power. With confidence w ask for
comparison of the revotd of democratic
faithfulness, with that of republican un
faithf uliness, the rising of democratlo
ideals with th lowering of republican
standards of political morality, th
popularity of democratlo legislation
with the growing odium attached to re
We point to the fact that democratlo
principles are triumphant in publlo
opinion, and that the republican party
Is being forced gradually to abandon
Its attempt to hold, the republican rank
and file to longer support the so-called
protective policy of that party. W hile
we regret that there was not a dmn
cratlc prsident and a dmocratio anats
to make possible a -beginning of tariff
revision by striking a flist blow at the
protection now accorded all trust prod
ucts In the present tariff bill. We point
to the Taft reciprocity measure as proof
that th republican party Is now aband
oning even the pretense that Its pro
tective policy Is for th bnfit of th'
Amrtcan farmr. Th democratic free list
tariff bill Is proof that our party haa
taken a first step In the direction, and
ran be trusted when It Is given powr to
