CHICAGO. March 9.-rreWent Taft
tonight gave a new definition of a "po
lltk-al progressive" in a apccch at tb
banquet of the Swedish-American league
of Chicago. He eliminated from con eld
eratlon aa real orosTesslves those who
look to soclallrra for relief from present
day evlla tai government, declared that
hia "dltttngulthed predecessor", deserved
moat of the credit for awakening the
public to the need for action, and argued
that "progresalr la that progressive
does," pointing to some of the achieve
mrnta of his administration to prove that
It has qualified under that respect.
The term -progressive.' " aald the
president, "includes all of those who have
been moved to efforts of reform by the
necessity fur legislative and govern'
mental action to deprive corporate capi
tal and undue vested privilege of Its po
litical power, and te bring about proper

Turning from those he considered pro

their desires for governmental chenges
th preaideat continued:
"The prcgreeslvs Snovement has as

FRANKFORT, Ky., March .-Champ
Clark, speaker of the national house of
representatives, a guest in the capital
of his native atste, today recounted to
th Kentucky legislature the record made
by the democratic party In congress.
W have absolutely kept faith with
the people," he declared to the stale leg
islators. "We have redeemed or are In
process of redeeming every promise we
made In order tu win the elections."
Declaring that the tariff and the ques
tion of trust control will overshadow all
other issues of the coming presidential
campaign. Speaker Clark aald :
It baa been given out in a manner
that seems authoritative that President
Taft proposei to veto any tariff billa that
w pass. We welcomg the raws. We do
not believe It ran be postponed, mint
mixed or sLuated out of the way.
Tlx present tariff law raises shout
1330,000,'JB) year. It Is estimated Tfia'
very Urn one dollar goes into Uncle
Sani's ooffera under the high protective
tariff system about $5 go Into th
pockets of the tariff barons. This be
ing true, then the high protective tariff
coats the people of this country l.U.000.in
yearly. It Is a gross outrage and cruelty
on th taxpayer."
Taking up th proposition of party and
popular progressiveneaa. Mr. Clark de
clared th only way to achieve progress
Is at the bands of ths democrats. He
said progressives In th republican party
would enact remedial legislation If It
could but 'that "standpatters are In the.
majority In that party and It looks as
they would continue to dominate it
Mr. Clark said tbst on the strength
of this condition he hoped for independent
support of democratic candidates this
'Mr. Clark declared the republicans un
doubtedly would attempt to befog im
pending Issues and "lure us away from
tbe tariff and th trust questions because
they realise that on these iasucs we will
defeat them most decisively."
The battle of tariff reform and the
proposition of control of the trusts, he
aald, must be fought to a finish.
"And on theso questions," he said, "we
ar undoubtedly In tb right."
