Inead that the aentlmant among Ilia
railroad men for Hughaa la growing
atronger avory day
MrWilliams has just completed a tour pf
the south and middle west, in fourse of which
he talked with representatives of every indus-
r try and addressed seven national conventions
of labor organizations',
"No man or group of men can deliver the
labor vote to the Democratic party," said Mr.
Williams. "The American workingman always
has supported the Republican ticket, and for
a very practical reason.
"He knows that the Republican party
stands for the great principle of protection to
American industry, and'that without such pn
. tection there can be no prosperity for him. The
wage earners of this country today consider ,
the re-establisliment of the protective tariff ;
( system the one great issue before them, and
they will vote accordingly next Tuesday
"N, o sensible laboring man is deceived' by. '
the present abnormal industrial, activity in the ,
; United States. We all kntfw that war orders
from Europe are responsible for it. '
"If the foreign conflict should end tomor
row, the wage-earners of this country would
be confronted with 'precisely similar condi
tions to those which confronted therij during
the first two years of the Wilson admirtistra--tion
idle mills, dead locomotives, men out
of employment, and business depression
everywhere.
"The workingman will vote next Tues-I
day for the Republican ticket'because he will-;
then votef or his own material welfare "
"In my trip through the south and west, I
discussed, the political situation with hundreds
of laboring men. I found no indication any
where of a pronounced trend of sentiment in
the ranks of Jhe wage-earners towards the
Democratic party."
The Republican Protective Tariff protects workingmen's wages without increas-'
ing the cost of living." The Question is shall we have a Democratic tariff that only
pretends to' help the wage-earner or a Republican tariff that really protects him?
