Prepared to Go Forward.
: The republican party is now, as always.
a party of advanced and consecutive
- statesmanship. It is prepared to go for
ward with the solution of those new
questions which social, economic and
political development have brought into
the forefront of the nation's interest It
wtil strive not only in the nation, but in
the states to enact the necessary legia
lation to safeguard the public health; to
limit effectively the labor of women and
children; to ; protect wage earners en
' gaged in dangerous occupations, to enact
comprehensive and generous workman's
compensation laws in place of the present
wasteful and unjust system of employ
ers liability, and in all possible ways
to satisfy the Just demand of the people
for the study and solution, of the com
plex and constantly . changing problems
Of social welfare.
In dealing with these questions it is
important that the rights of every lndi
vldual to the freeest possible develop'
ment of his own powers and .resources
and to the control of his own justly ac
quired property, so far as those are
compa table with the rights of others,
shall not be interfered with or, destroyed.
The social and political structure of the
United States rests upon the civil liberty
of the individual; and for the protection
of that liberty the people have wisely,
In the national and state constitutions,
put definite limitations on themselves
and on their governmental officers and
agencies. To enforce these limitations,
to secure the orderly and cohesent ex
ercise of governmental powers and to
protect the rights of even the humblest
and least favored individual are the
function of independent courts of Jus

tentlon to uphold at all times the
authority and Integrity of the courts.
both state and federal, and It will ever
insist that their powers to enforce their
process and protect life, liberty and prop
erty shall be preserved inviolate.
An orderly method is provided under
our system of government by which the
people may, when they choose, alter or
amend the constitutional provisions
which underlie that government. Un
til these constitutional provisions are so
altered or amended, in orderly fashion,
it is the duty of the courts to see to it
that when challenged they are1 enforced,
That the courts, both federal and state
may bear the heavy burden laid upon
them to "the complete satisfaction of pub
lic opinion, we favor legislation to pre
vent long delays and the tedious and
costly appeals which have so often
amounted to a denial of justice in civil
cases and to a failure to protect the
public at large in criminal cases.
Since the responsibility of the judiciary
." Is so great the standards of judicial ac
ltion must be always and everywhere
above renroach. While we regard .the
recall of Judges as. unwise, we favor such
action as may be necessary to simplify
the process by which any judge if found
to be derelict in his duty may be removed
Together with peaceful and orderly de
velopment at home, the republican party
earnestly favors all measures for the es
tablishment and protection of the peace
of the world, and for the development of
closer relations between the various na
tions of the earth. It belives most ear
nestly in the peaceful settlement of inter
national disputes and in the reference of
all Justifiable controversies between na
tions to an international court of Justice.
Against Monopoly und Privilege.
The republican party is opposed to spe
cial privilege and monopoly. It placed on
the statute books tbo Interstate commerce
act of 1887, and the important amend-
ments thereto, and the anti-trust act of
1890, and it has consistently and success
fully enforced the provisions of these
laws. It will take no backward step to
permit the re-establishment in any degree
of conditions which were intolerable.
Experience makes it plain that the busi
ness of the country may be carried on
without fear or without disturbance, and
at the same time without resort to prac
tices which are abhorrent to the common
sense of justice. The republican party
favors the enactment of legislation sup
plementary to the existing anti-trust act
which will define as criminal offenBes
those specific acts that uniformly mark
attempts to restrain and to monopolize
trade, to the end that those who honestly
Intend to obey the law may have a guide
for their action, and that those who at
tempt to violate the law may be more
surely punished. The same certainty
should be given to the law prohibiting
combinations and monopolies that charac
terizes other provisions of commercial
law in order that no part of the field of
business opportunity may be restricted
by monopoly or combination, that busi
ness success honorably achieved may no
be converted Into crime, and that the
right o- every man to acquire commodi
ties, and particularly the necessaries of
life, in an open market uninfluenced by
the manipulation of trust or combination
may be preserved.
Federal Trade Commission.

of federal laws governing interstate com
merce and enterprises Impressed with' 3
public use engaged therein, there is much

end trade commission, thus placing In
the hands of an administrative board
many of the functions now necessattfy
exercised by the courts. This will pro
mote promptness In the administration
of the law and avoid delays and techni
calities incident to court procedure.
For a Proteetlre Tariff.
We reaffirm our belief , in a protective
tariff. The republican tariff policy hat
been of the greatest benefit to the coun
try, developing our resources, diversify
ing our Industries and protecting our
workmen against competition with
cheaper labor abroad,' thus establishing
for our wage . earners . the American
standard of llvmg.
The protective tariff is so woven into
the fabric of our industrial and agricul
tural life that to substitute for it a
tariff for revenue only would destroy
many Industries and throw millions of
our people out of employment
The products of the farm and mines
should receive the same measure of pro
tection as other products of American
. "We ho)d that the import duties should
be high enough, while yielding a uf
flclent revenue, to protect adequately
American industries and wages. Some
of the existing Import duties are too
high and should be reduced. ' Readjust
ment should be made from time to time
to conform to changed conditions and to
reduce excessive rates, but without injury
to American Industry.- To accomplish
this correct information is indispenslble
This Information can best be obtained by
an expert commission, as the large vol
ume of useful facts contained in the. re
cent reports of the tariff board has
demonstrated. The pronounced feature of
modern industrial life is Its enormous
diversification. 1 To apply tariff rates
Justly to these changing conditions re
quires closer study and more scientific
methods than ever before.
Failure of Democratic Party.
The republican party has shown by its
creation of the tariff board, its recogni
tion of this situation and its determina
tion to be equal to it. We condemn the
democratic party for its failure either, to
provide funds for the continuance of this
board or to make some other provision
for securing the Information requisite
for intelligent tariff legislation. We pro
test against the democratic method Of
legislating on this vitally Important sub
ject without careful Investigation.
We condemn the democratic tariff bills
passed by the house of representatives of
the -Sixty-second congress, as sectional,
as injurious to the public credit and
destroying business enterprise. , "
' High Cost Of Living.
The steadily increasing cost of living
has become a ; matter not only of
national, ' but of worldwide concern.
The fact that it is not due to . the
protective tariff system is evidenced
in countries which have a tariff
policy different from our own, as well
as by the fact that, the cost of living has
increased while rates of duty have re
mained stationary or been reduced.
The '.republican party will support ' a
prompt, scientific inquiry into the causes
wn.cn .re opemuve uou. in '
States and elsewhere, to increase the COST
which are operative both in the United
of living. When the exact facts are
known, . it will take necessary steps to
remove any abuses that may be found
to exist, in order that the cost of the
food, clothing and shelter of the people
may in no "way be unduly or artificially
Banking and Currency. -
The republican party has always stood
for. the resumption of specie payments
and for the establishment of the gold
standard. It is committed to the pro
gressive development of our banking and
currency system. sTa banking . arrange
ments today ,: further revision to
meet the requirements of current condi
tions. We need measures which will pre
vent the recurrence of money panics and
financial disturbances and which will pro
mote the prosperity of business and the
welfare of the laboring people by pro
ducing constant employment.
We need better currency facilities for
the movement of crops in the west and
80utli. We need banking arrangements
under American auspices for the en
couragement and better conduct of our
foreign trade. In attaining these ends,
the independence of Individual banks,
whether organized . under national or
state charters, must be carefully pro
tected and our' banking and currency sys
tem must be safeguarded from any Im
possibility of demonstration by sectional,
financial or political Interests.
It is of great importance to the social
and economic welfare of this country
that its farmers have facilities for bor
rowing easily, and cheaply the mOney
they need to increase the productiveness
of their land. It Is as important that
financial machinery be provided to sup
ply the demand of farmers for credit as
it is that the banking and currency sys
tems be reformed in the interest of gen
eral business. , ; : . '
, Therefore, we recommend and urge, an
authoritative investigation of agricultural
credit societies, and corporations in other
countries, and the passage of state and
federal laws for the ' establishment and
capable supervision of organizations hav
ing for their purpose the loaning of funds
to farmers.- -, . . ,
The Civil Service. - '
- We reaffirm our adherence to the prin
ciple of appointment of public office
based on' proved fitness, and tenure dur
ing good behavior' and efficiency.
The' republican party' stands committed
to the maintenance, extension and en
forcement' of the civil1 service law, and
it favors the passage of legislation em
powering the president to extend ' the
competitive service as far as practicable
We favor legislation to make possible the
equitable retirement of disabled and
superannuated members of the civMI ser
vice, In order that a high standard of
efficiency may , be maintained. -
We favor the amendment of the federal
employe's liability law -so as to-extend
Its provisions to all government employes,
as, well as to provide for a more liberal
scale' of compensation ' for ' injury and
death. . , . '
. r Campaign Contrlbntionn,
We favor such additional legislation as
may be necessary, more effectually to
prohibit ' corporations from contributing
funds, ' directly or indirectly, to cam
paigns for the nomination or election of
the president, vice president, senators,
and representatives In congress.
We heartily aeprove the recent, aot of
congress requiring the fullest publicity
in regard to all campaign contributions,
whether made In connection with primar
ies,' conventions or elections.
Conservation Policy. r
We rejoice In the success of the dis
tinctive republican poller of the con
servation of our natural resources, for
their use by the people without caste and
without monopoly, and we pledge our
selves to a continuation of such a policy.
' We favor such fair and reasonable rules

American citizens, whether native born
or alien, and regardless of race, religion
or previous political allegiance. The right
of asylum is a precious possession of
the people of the United States and it Is
not to be surrendered or restricted.

- ' 1 To Handle The Floods.
- The Mississippi river is' the nation's
drain ditch. Its flooded waters, gather
ing from thirty-one states and the Do
minion of Canada, constitute an over
powering force which breaks the levees
and pours its torrents over many million
acres of the richest land In the union,
stopping malls, Impeding commerce and
causing great loss of life and property.
These floods are national in scope and
the disasters they produce seriously affect
the general welfare. The states unaided
cannot cope with this giant problem;
hence, we believe 'the federal government
should assume-a fair proportion of the
burden of its 'control so as to prevent the
disaster from recurring floods.
" v Reclamation.
We favor the continuance of the policy
of the government with regard to the
reclamation of arid lands and for the
speedy settlement and improvement of
such lands; we favor an amendment to
the policy that will reasonably extend
the time within which the reclamation
may be repaid by the land owners.
' We favor a liberal and systematic
policy for the improvement of our rivers
and harbors. Such Improvement has
been made upon expert information and
after careful comparison with the cost
and prospective benefit.
The Alaska Situation.
. We favor a liberal policy toward Alaska
to promote the developments of the great
resources of that district, with such safe
guards as will prevent monopoly. We
favor the opening of the coal lands to
development through a law leasing the
lands on such terms as will invite de
velopment and provide fuel for the navy

main entirely free from partisan politics.
4.- We ratify in all Its particulars the
platform of 1908 respecting citizenship for
the people of Porto Rico.
We pledge the republican party to the
enactment of laws to give relief from
the constantly growing evil of induced
or undesirable immigration which is In
imical to the progress and welfare of
the people of the United States.
Safety at Sea.
. We favor the speedy enactment of laws
to provide that seamen shall not be com

the program adopted early In the week
by the leaders of the president to beat
Roosevelt. Inexorably the process went
on, suggesting those lines of Longfellow:
Turn, turn my wheel, too soon, too soon
The noon will be the afternoon,
Tomorrow be today.
Behind us in our paths we cast
The broken potsherds of the past,
And all are ground to dust at last
And trodden into clay.
Straits for Third Party.
"I look upon this day as a crisis in the
history of the republican party," said
ex-Secretary Strauss of Commerce and
Labor to me as we rode down town in a
Wabash avenue car. "What a pity that
there could not have been some com
promise that would have saved the faces
of both Taft and Roosevelt. Both have
made mistakes in this campaign. Roose
velt has talked too much."
"But what about November?" I asked.
"If a reactionary Is nominated at Balti
more, and there te no third party, it will
be the prettiest fight we have ever seen.
But if they should nominate Bryan or
Gaynor, then Taft Is hopelessly beaten,
In my judgment. However, I am for
RooseVelt and a third party, for there
must be a new deal all around."
' Others Mure Hopeful.
That Is the Judgment of one who was
a member of Roosevelt's cabinet.
On the other hand, you can hear scores
of men saying that three months will
bring a wondrous change In political con
ditions, and Taft is bound to grow as
the American people begin to know of
the things he has accomplished.
Be that as it may, one fact remains,
that Intense bitterness reigned at the
close of the convention, and friendships
of years have been sundered because of
the two rival camps Taft and Roosevelt
When J. J. McCarthy rose to answer
as chairman of the delegation to the call
of his state and snapped out "Nebraska
refuses to vote," he was only emphasiz
ing what California had done, Governor
Hiram Johnson having left the convention
an hour or two before for good and all.
And yet much can happen in five
months, when the people discover that
Taft has been a good president, and that
really the colonel has not suggested any
Improvement. They will find out that
he stands for nothing good that Taft
does not stand for, and may hay when
