GRAND rAP IDS. Mich.. Bept
President Teft made huvflrrt speech ot
hi western trip on the tariff and bis
vetoea of the wool, cotton and farmera'
free list bills here today. The president
attacked the democrats and "tnmrgant"
republican in the senate and houa who
put those bills through oongrese at the
special session; defended hi own oourse
In vetoing them and declared be waa
unalterably opposed to revision of the
tariff except on Information secured by
the tariff board.
He defined clearly hi own position
with regard to tariff revision and made
it plain that even if political defeat
stared him In the face he would not alter
his policy. The president said that re
vision of the tariff with "blacksmith
tools," such aa he said the coalition of
democrat and "lnaurgent" used will
lead mevltably to a revulsion ef feeling
and a recurrence of the higher rate and
the "old system of high tariff."
"This." said ,the president, "I would
deprecate and so far as I can, with the
powera given me by the constitution, I
propose to ftop such a movement and to
secure a reduction tn accordance wits
the principles cf the republican platform
and on information accurate and im
partial. If that policy 1 not approved
by the electorate, then, ot course, those
of us who are now in office muet give
way to men who will carry out a differ
ent policy, but while w are in office our
position ought clearly to be understood.
We follow this policy not enlr because
we are pledged to it. but becauae we be
lieve it right; because we believe that a
full discussion and a close study on th
part of people will convince them ulti
mately to approve snd adopt it."
Quote State Platform.
President Taft quoted from' the plat
form of the republican' party in Ohio,
New York. Wisconsin, Iowa and Kansas
to show that his party in those state
had adopted the ideal of a permanent
body which should make sr.lentlfia

In effect he charged the Insurgent
with tad faith in havuia' sdvooated the
creation of the tariff board and then
with not wishing to wait for Its report.
