reiteriation of former platforms of the Demo cratic party on the same subjects There can be assigned on good reason why any voter who calls himself a Democrat cannot sub scribe to and support it The best test of its thorough Democracy is not manifested onlyin what it contains but in the manner of its adoption In the most rep resentative Democratic Conven tion held in this country since 1892 with all elements that had formerly been in discord represented the platform was unanimously reported by the Com mittee and with equal unanimity adopted by the Convention Its proclamations are not only Demo cratic but its unanimous adoption declares inan jinniistakable way ijiat it voices the sentiment of all Democrats a f t Democratic asc It t1S tO the Hof a scorea t Jrs t t4iit ar Ir jf tl l i Jk

Bryan and Kern standingI for them If he is a Roosevelt Republican to be consistent he should vote the same way The Denver platform is not only a Democratic platform but it is a Roosevelt platform as

this class of amuse mentMr J Rehorn has discovered that in practically every county where John Robinsons circus whic toured Kentucky this summer j exhibited only a nominal State license of 5 as provided under the old law was collected from the show by the county clerks The new State revenue law provides that 5 for each one hundred voters jn the county not to exceed 50 must be collected for each performance of the main show and half this sum for each sideshow according to Mr Re horns contention- If the county clerks in the counties where the circus exhibited did not collect from the circus management on this basis when the city or town license was paid he contends that the coun ty clerk is liable The State he contends has been deprived oft ue1fsource by the negligence or over

divorce toa husband gave the two small children to the erring wife The unusual decision was explained in these words A mothers love survives the deepest degradation of which theI female nature is capable and it is capable of a lower state thn mans nature When a woman comes into my court claiming the custody of her child I always grant it She may be a bad wo man and yet a good mother at least the best if not the only mother the child can have In this way I have at times saved both mother and child For the sake of the child the mother will at least strive to appear virtuous It is not a rare event for father and son to be engaged knowingly to each other in crime it is never the case with mother and child This may not universally be the law of the land but it is the in flexible law of nature tChildren bring out the best that is in us particularly in the mother Fresh from the hands of their Creator pure and sweet in their innocence and trust and helplessness not contaminated by sinful life they bloom about us like flowers from paradise- A wise man has told us that in our old age when the frame weakens and the faculties decay the mind returns to its early youth and then its

better to conquor temta tion than to be freed from it Therefore God does not at once take us out of the world and be yond the reach of temptation he does better than that when he keeps us here and offers us his omnipotence for the defeat of our enemy A victorious sinbe set man has more to be grateful for than an undisturbed angel For every victory over sin brings two notable results It increases our own power against temta tion and it lessens the effective ness of that temptation every deIfeatalways appear so for temptation dies hard but it is so and we can prove it if we will fight

value from 30 to 40 a year The corresponding fig ures for horse manure are not presented but it is presumed that the value would be equally great if not greater since horse manure is heating and if kept from firefanging has an additional value beyond its own fertility in causing bacterial fermentation and rotting of bedding and other waste material This estimate of the value of the cow manure

that good roads will spell advance ment in larger letters than in another one thing we can have The meeting at Eminence last Friday of over 200 good road ad vocates from various parts of the State to inspect a mile of model road built by the government emphasises the awaking At this gathering a temporary organiza tion was effected of a State Good Road Asso The permanent or ganization will be made at the State Fair in September Every county should be represented then and with proper steps great work can be planned and accomplished for good roads Such an organization can edu cate the people to understand what bad roads cost and how well good roads pay This is the first and most necessessary step for nearly half the population of Kentucky is indifferent on the road question from lack of know ledge on this important matter The next step is to educate the people how to build goodroads At present ninetenths of our roads are poorly built and hun dreds of thousands of dollars are squandered in building poor roads simply from the lack of know ledge as to how to build good ones The third step is to educate people to be willingly to pay for good roads as the very best investment they can make

and Wage Earners The Republican party would appear to be very solicitousaboul the wage erners of the country and especially declares in the national platform just adopted its purpose to retain the high standard of living of the wage earners of this country who are the most direct beneficiaries of the protective system That sounds well but can hardly de ceive the average workman who from experience knows that if he is the most direct benefici ary of the protective system the sooner that system is reformed the better it will be for him There is no doubt that the tariff protects the manufactures and that it has fostered trusts and created monopolies We also have evidence that the tariff has had a hand in creating the panic and the resulting business de pressionSenator Foraker recently de clared in a speech to the members of the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce that there is still a cloud hanging over the business generally uneasy There are also a good many uneasy working men for Senator Foraker said that on July 31 1907 there was work for 20000 more men in Cincinnati than there were work men to do it but the mercantile agencies of Cincinnati now in formed him that there are to day in Cincinnati from 20000 to 22000 idle artisans men who work at trades skilled labor and the highest classes of labor so to speaky This acknowledgement by such Jan eminent Republican leader that the wage earners are hunt huntfg are the most direct beneficiaries of the protective system If they are it shows that the protective system is a delusion as far as wage earners are concern edWe

How Long to Sleep There can be no hard and fast rules set for the length fif time one should sleep All depends on the person and temperment W to1d that brain workers ind those ol a nervous nature 1f rrr4 t0if irsir need more sleep than othersyet some of the greatest thinkers oin the world sleep but four or five hours a night with no ill effects A good rule to follow is to sleep until one awakes refreshes whether that is in five hourso ten If possible do not be called This is particularly important for growing children Some parents make fetich of early hours for their children and think so much of getting them out of lazy hab its that they do not consider their nervous system Even when you must go to work at an early hour do not train yourself to depend on an alarm which gives a shock to the nervous system Go to bed with the fixed idea in your brain to awaken at a certain time arid it rarely fails that your eyes pop open at that minute If it be well to sleep until re freshed it is not well to indulge- in the habit of turning over for another nap Get up as soon as you awake and you will not be sluggish and stupid for several hours in the morning Dont be one of those persons who says with an air I never sleep in the daytime If you have any regard for your looks and health you will take a short rest each day even though you think you cannot possibly sleep It wont be long before you are saying I believe I just drop ped and will feel better and brighter for it the rest of teday and evening Remember there is nothing like sleep to build up and restore nerve power The Mule on the Farm Missouri is the home of the mule but this animal is very profitably used throughout the United States to a greater or les ser extent The mule has its place the same as any other do mestic animal It also has its faults and its merits says Claude Kinnebrew in Farmers Tribune Perhaps there is no other quality in a mule which disqualifies it for use on the farm so much as its stubborn disposition Many farmers admire the animal in other respects but because of its tember it is ignored as a drafter The mule is also a very artistic kicker a characteristic disapproved of by the farmer On the other hand the mule is apt alert always ready and generally willing to respond to his masters get up Although a Southern product it is being slowly demonstrated that the mule may be used on the farm throughout Central West with a marked degree of success h must be acknowledg ed that it is not so well adapted to a Northern climate as to its native habitat However it is not difficult to acclimate the mule in the North if precautions are taken against too sudden changes When once accustomed to the cold States in the North it with stands the weather with as much hardness as the average

Publicity for Campaign Contribu tions He Says Is Democratic Idea Not a Foe to Wealth Honestly Acquired If Elected Promises Justice to All Lincoln Neb William Jennings Bryan was formally notified of his nomination by the Democratic party for the presidency of the United States Henry D Clayton of Alabama I was the spokesman of the notification committee Mr Bryans speech of ac ceptance follows- Mr Clayton and Gentlemen of the No- tIfication Committee I can not accept the nomination which you officially ten ter without first acknowledging my deep indebtedness to the Democratic party for the extraordinary honor which It kas conferred upon me Having twice before bean a candidate for the presidency In campaigns which ended in defeat a third nomination the result of the free asa voluntary act of the voters of the party can only be explained by a sub stantial sad undisputed growth in the principles and policies for which I with a multitude of others have contended As these principles and policies have- given me whatever political strength I possess the action of the convention not only renews my faith in them but strengthens my attachment to them A Platform Is Binding I shall in the near future prepare a more formal reply to your notification and in that letter of acceptance will deal with the platform in detail It Is sufficient at this time to assure you that I am In hearty accord with both the let ter and the spirit of the platform I in gorse it in whole and in part and shall if elected regard Its declarations as bindIlag upon me And I may add a t form is binding as to what it omits as well as to what it contains According tt the Democratic idea the people think for themselves and select officials to car ty out their wishes The voters are the sovereigns the officials are the servants employed for a fixed time and at a stated t wantj40nereigns want it done Platforms are i entirely In harmony with this Democratic idea A platform announces the partys position on questions which are at issue and an official is not at liberty to use the authority vested In him to urge personal views which have not been submitted to the voters for their approval If one Is nominated upon a platform which is not satisfactory to him he must If candid either decline the nomination or in ac cepting It propose an amended platform in lieu of the one adopted by the con rent Ion No such situation however confronts your candidate for the plat form upon which I was nominated not oily contains nothing from which I dis sent but It specifically outlines all the remedial legislation which we can hope- t secure during the next four years Republican Challenge Accepted The distinguished statesman who re pelved the Republican nomination forIpresident said in his notification The strength of the Republican cause In the campaign at hand is the fact that we represent the policies essential to the reform 6t known abuses to the continuance of liberty and true prosperity and that we are determined as our plat form unequivocally declares to maintain them and carry them on In the name of the Democratic party I accept the challenge and charge that the Republican party Is responsible for all the abuses which now exist in the federal government and that it Is Impo tent to accomplish the reforms which are Imperatively needed Further I can not concur in the statement that tile Re publican platform unequivocally declares for the reforms that are necessary on the contrary I affirm that it openly and notoriously disappoints the hopes and ex- pectatIons tf reformers whether those reformers be Republicans or Democrats iofar did the Republican convention fall short of its duty that the Republi can candidate felt it necessary to add to his platform in several Important particulars thus rebuking the leaders of the n whose cooperation he must l leisIlattonthe leading questions at issue I shall at this time confine myself to tho paramount question and to the farreaching pur pose of our party as that purpose is set forth In the platform Shall the People Rule Our platform declares that the overshadowing Issue which manifests itself in all the questions now under discussion is Shall the people rule No matter which way we turn no matter to what svfcject we address ourselves the same question confronts us Shall the people Control their own government and use that government for the protection of their rights aad for the promotion of their welfare or shall the representa tives of predatory wealth prey upon a defenseless public while tho offenders secure Immunity from subservient dais whom they raise to power by omf scrupulous methods This Is the raiSed by the known abuses to which Mr Taft refers Th Presidents Indictment

iniquity ranging from the oppression of wage earners to unfair and unwholesome methods of crushing out competition and to defrauding the public by stockjobbing and the manipulation of securities Cer tain wealthy men beIcent conscience and who commit the hide ous wrong of teaching our young men that phenomenal business success must ordinarily be based on dishonesty have during the last few months made it ap parent that they have banded together to work for a reaction Their endeavor is to overthrow and discredit all who hon estly administer the law to prevent any additional legislation which would check and restrain them and to secure If pos sible a freedom from all restraint whlca will permit every unscrupulous wrong doer to do what he wishes unchecked provided he has enough money What an arraignment of the predatory in terests Is the presidents Indictment true And If true against whom was the indict ment directed Not against the Demo cratic party iMr Taft Indorses the Indictment Mr Taft says that these evils have crept in during the last ten years He declares that during this time some prominent and Influential members of the community spurred by financial suc cess and In their hurry for greater wealth became unmindful of the common rules of business honesty and fidel Iity and of the limitations imposed bylaw upon their actions and that the revelations of the breaches of trusts the disclosures as to rebates and discrimina tions by railroads the accumulating evi dence of the violations of the antitrust laws by a number of corporations and the overissue of stocks and bonds of interstate railroads for the unlawful en riching of directors and for the purpose of concentrating the control of the rail roads under one management all these he charges quickened the conscience of the people and brought on a moral this time I beg to remind you Republican officials presided In the executive department filled the cabinet dominated the senate controlled the house of representatives and occupied most of the federal judgeships Four years ago the Republican platform boast fully declared that since 1860 with the exception of two yearsthe Republican party had been in control of part or of all the branches of the federal government that for two years only was the Democratic party in a position to either enact or repeal a law Having drawn the salaries having enjoyed the honors haying secured the prestige let the Re publican party accept the responsibility Republican Party Responsible Why were these known abuses permitted to develop Why have they not been corrected If existing laws are sufficient why have they not been en forced All of the executive machinery of the federal government is in the hands of the Republican party Are new laws necessary Why have they not been enacted With a Republican president to recommend with a Republican senate and house to carry out s recommenda tions why does the Republican candi date plead for further time in which to do what should have been done long ago Can Mr Taft promise to be more strenuous in the prosecution of wrong doers than the present executive Can he ask for a larger majority in the senate than his party now has Does he need more Republicans in the house of representatives or a speaker with more unlimited authority Why No Tariff Reform The presidents close friends have been promising for several years that he would attack the iniquities of the tariff We have had Intimation that Mr Taft was restive under the demands of the highly protected industries And yet the Influ ence of the manufacturers who have for 25 years contributed to the Republican campaign fund and who in return have framed the tariff schedules has been sufficient to prevent tariff reform As the present campaign approached both the president and Mr Taft declared In favor ot tariff revision but set the date of revision after the election But the pre sure brought to Jearby the protected Interests has been great enough fo pre vent any att ethpt at tariff reform before the election ri4th reduction prom ised after the election Is so hedged about With qualifying phrases that no one can estimate With accuracy the sum total of tariff reform tp be expected in case ofI Republican su cess If the past can betaken as a guide the Republican party will be so obligated by campaign con tributions from the beneficiaries of preI tection as to make that party powerless to bring to th= country any material relief from the present tariff burdens Why No AntiTrust Legislation A fw years ago the Republican lead ers in the house of representatives were coerced by public opinion into the sup port of an antitrust law which had the indorsement of the president but the senate refused even to consider the measure and since that time no effort has been made by the dominant party to se cure remedial legislation upon this sub ject i Why No Railroad Legislation For ten years the Interstate Commerce Commission has been asking for an enlargement of Its powers that It might prevent rebates and discriminations but can1houseby its entreaties In 1900 the Republican national convention was urged to indorse the demand for railway legislation but its platform was silent on the subject Even in 1904 the convention gave no pledge to remedy these abuses When the president finally asked for legislation- he l drew his inspiration from three Demo cratic national platforms and he received more cordial support from the Democrats than from the Republicans The Republi cans in the senate deliberately defeated several amendments offered by Senator LaFollette and supported by the Demo crats amendments embodying legislation asked by the interstate Commerce Commission One of these amendments au thorized the ascertainment of the value of railroads This amendment was not only defeated by the senate but lt was overwhelmingly rejected by the recent Republican national convention and the Republican candidate has sought to res cue his party from the disastrous results of this act by expressing himself im si qualified way in favor of ascertaining the value of the railroads Over18ueofStocksandBondsI Mr Taft complains of the overissue of stocks and bonds of railroads for the unlawful enriching of directors and for the purpose of concentrating the control of the railroads under one management and the complaint is well founded But with a president to point out the evil and a Republican congress to correct it we find nothing done for the protection of the public Why 1vfy honorable opponent 11asbYchJscont s sion relieved me of ne ess1ty of fur- nIshing proof he admits the condition and he can not avoid the logical conclusion that must be drwpfrom the admission There is no doubt whatever that a large lf1cmasses ye tIe influence upon legislation upon the administration of the government and they are beginning tp understand the cause For a generation the Republican patty has drawn its campaign funds from this beneficiaries of special legislation Privileges have been pledged and f W i fu 1 granted In return for money contributed to debauch elections What can be expected wIzen official authority is turned over to the representatives of those who first furnish the sinews of war and then reimburse themselves out of the pockets of the taxpayers NecessaryIre- mains in power It is powerless to regenerate Itself It can not attack wrong doing in high places without disgracing many of Its prominent members and it therefore uses opiates Instead of the surgeons knife Its malefactors construe each Republican victory as an indorse ment of their conduct and threaten the party with defeat if eYare interfered with Not until that party passes through a period of fasting in the wilderness will the Republican leaders learn to study public questions from the standpoint of the masses Just as with Individuals the cares of this world and theIers serve far away from home and are not In constant contact with the voters continued party success blinds their eyes to the needs of the people and makes them deaf to the ory of distress Publicity as to Campaign Contribu ItionsjAn effort has been made to secure legis requiring publicity as to campaign contributions and expenditures but the Republican leaders even in the face of an indignant public refused to consent toa law which would compel honesty in elections When the matter was brought up in the recent Republican national byihas been driven to apologize for his con vention and to declare himself In favor of a publicity law and yet if you will read what he says upon this subject you will find that his promise falls far short Ir of the requirements of the situation He says If I am elected president I shall urge upon congress with every hope of suc cess that a law be passed requiring the filing in a federal office of a statement of the contributions received by com mittees and candidates In elections for members of congress in such other elections as are constitutionally within the control of congress I shall not embarrass him by asking him upon what he bases his hope of suc cess it is certainly not on any encour agement he has received from Republican leaders It Is sufficient to say that if his hopes were realized if In spite of the adverse action of his convention he should succeed in securing the enactment of the very law which he favors it would give but partial relief He has read the Democratic platform not only his lan guage but his evident alarm indicates that he has read it carefully He even had before hint the action of the Demo cratic national committee in interpreting and applying that platform and yet he falls to say that he favors the publication of the contributions before the election Of course it satisfies a natural curiosity to find out how an election has been purchased even when the knowledge comes too late to bofservic but why should the people be kept in darkness until the election is past Why should the locking of the door be delayed until the horse is gone An Election a Public Affair An election is a public affair The peo pie exercising the tfglitto Select

candidate has studied and yet he re fuses to declare himself in favor of the legislation absolutely necessary name ly legislation requiring publication before the election How can the people hope to rule if they are not able to learn until after the election what the predatory interests are do Ing The Democratic party meets the issue honestly and courageously It says We pledge the Democratic party to the enactment of a law prohibiting any corporation from contributing to a cam paign fund and any individual from con tributing an amount above a reasonable maximum and providing for the publi cation before election of all such con tributions above a reasonable minimum The Democratic national committee Im mediately proceeded to Interpret and ap plyvthis plank announcing that no con tributions would be received from cor porations that no individual would be al lowed to contribute more than 10000 and that all contributions above 100 would be made public before the electionthose received before October 15 to be made public on or before that day those re ceived afterward to be made public on the day when received and no such contributions to be accepted within three days of

senators while finding Increased expression did not become a domnant sentiment A constitutional amendment had from time to time been suggested and the matter had been more or less discussed Inn few of the states but the movement had not reached a point where it manifested it self through congressional action In the Fiftysecond congress however a reso lution was reported from a house committee proposing the necessary constitu tional amendment and this resolution passed the house of representatives by a vote which was practically unanimous In the Fiftythird congress a similar res olution was reported to and adopted by the house of representatives Both the Fiftysecond and Fiftythird were Democratic The Republicans control of the house as a result gainedJI election of 1894 and in tile congress the proposition died in tee As time went on however the sen timent drew among the people until it forced a Republican congress to follow the example set by the Democrats and then another and another Republican congress acted favorably State after state has Indorsed this reform until nearly twothirds of the states have recorded themselves In its favor The United States senate hOAvever impudently and arrogantly obstructs the passage of the resolution notwithstanding the fact that the voters pf the United tat sby an overwhelming majority demand It And this refusal iar the more

notification speech the Republican candidate speaking of the elec tion of senators by the people says Personally I am inclined to favor it but it is hardly a party question What Is necessary to make this a party ques tlon When the Democratic convention vote and the Republican convention re jects the proposition by a vote of seven indorses a proposition by a unanimous to one does it not become an issue be tween the parties Mr Taft can not re move the question from the arena of pol itics by expressing a personal inclination toward the Democratic position For several years he has been connected with the administration What has he ever said or done to bring this questiOn before the public What enthusiasm has he shown In the reformation of the senate What Influence could he exert in behalf of a reform which his party has openly and notoriously condemned in its convention and to which he is attached only by a belated expression of personal Inclination The Gateway to Other Reforms Shall the people rule Every remedial measure of a national character must run the gauntlet of the senate The presi dent may personally incline toward a reform the house may consent to it but as long as the senate obstructs the reform the people must wait The pres ident may heed a popular demand the house may yield to public opinion but as long as the senate is defiant the rule of the people is defeated The Democratic platform very properly describes the pop ular election of senators as the gate way to other national reforms Shall we open the gate or shall we allow the exploiting Interests to bar the way by the control of this branch of the federal leg- Islature Through a Democratic victory and through a Democratic victory only can the people secure the popular elec tion of senators The smaller parties are unable to secure this reform the Repub lican party under its present leadership is resolutely opposed to it the Democrat- Ic party stands for it and has boldly de manded It If I am elected to the presl dency those who are elected upon the ticket with me will be like myself pledged to this reform and I shall con veno congress in extraordinary session Immediately after Inauguration and ask among other things for the fulfillment of this platform pledge House Rules Despotic The third instrumentality employed te defeat the will of the people is found in the rules of the house of representatives Our platform points out that the house of representatives was designed by the fathers of the constitution to be the pop ular branch of our government respon sive to the public will and adds The house of representatives as controlled in recent years by the Republican party has ceased to be a deliberative and legislative body responsive to the will of a majority of the members but has come under the absolute domination of the speaker who has entire control of its deliberations and powers of legis lationWe have observed with amazement the popular branch of our federal gov ernment helpless to obtain either the consideration or enactment of measures desired bv n majority of its members This arraignment is fully justified The reform Republicans in the house of rep resentatives when in the minority in their own party are as helpless to obtain a hearing or to secure a vote upon a measure as are the Democrats In the recent session of the present congress there was a considerable element In the Republican party favorable to remedial legislation but a few leaders in con trol of the organization despotically sup pressed these members and thus forced a real majority in the house to submit to a well organized minority The Republican national convention instead of rebuking this attack upon popular gov ernment eulogized congress and nomin ated as the Republican candidate for vicepresident one of the men who shared in the responsibility for the coercion of the house Our party demands that the house of representatives shall again become a deliberative body controlled by a majority of the peoples representatives and not by the speaker and is pledged to adopt such rules and regulations to govern the house of rep resentatives as will enable a majority of Its members to direct its deliberations and control legislation Shall the people rule They can not do so unless they can control the house of representatives and through their representatives in the house give expression to their purposes and their desires The Republican party is committed to the methods now in vogue in the house of representatives the Democratic party is pledged te such a re vision of the rules aswill bring the pop ular branch of the federal government into harmony with the Ideas of those who framed our constitution and found ed our government Other Issues Will Be Discussed Later Shall the people rule I repeat is declared by our platform to be the overshadowing question and as the campaign progresses I shall take occasion to discuss this rfciestlon as it manifests itself in other issues for whether we consider the tariff question the trust question the railroad question the banking question the labor question the question of Imperialism the development of our waterways or any other of the numerous prob lems which press for solution we shall find that the real question Involved in each Is whether the government shall remain a mere business asset of favor seeking corporations or be an instrument In the hans of the people for the advancement of the common wetjL Democrats Have Earned Confidence- If the voters are satisfied with the record of the Republican party and with its management of public affairs we can not reasonably ask for a change in ad ministration if however the voters feel that the people as a whole have too lit tie influence in shaping the policies of the government if they feel that great combinations of capital have encroached upon the rights of the masses and em ployed the Instrumentalities government to secure an unfalrvshare of the total wealth produced then we have a right to expect a verdict against the Re publican party and in favor of the Demo cratic party for our party has risked de feat aye suffered defeat in its effort to arouse the conscience of the public and to bring about that very awakening to which Mr Taft has referred Only those are worthy to be Intrusted with leadership In a great cause who are willing to die for it and the Democratic parly has proven its worthiness by its refusal to purchase victory by delivering pohavetweeh Democracy on the one side and plutocracy on

party Is not the enemy of any legitimate industry or of honest accumulations It is on the contrary a friend of Industry and the steadfast proteetor of that wealth which represents a service to society The Democratic party does not seek to ah nihilate all corporations It simply assarts that as the government creates corpora tions it must retain the power to regulate and to control them and that it pjuld not permit any corporation to convert Itself into a monopoly Surely we should have the cooperation of all legitimate corporations in our effort to protect business and Industry from the odium

it increase with the laps of time That tfeere are abuses which need to be remedied even the Republican candidate admits that his party Is unable to remedy them has been fully demonstrated during the last ten years I have such confidence in the In lIcence as well as the patriotism of the people that I can not doubt their readiness to accept the reasonable re forms which our party proposes rather than permit the continued growth of ex isting abuses to hurry the country on to remedies more radical and more drastic Our Partys Ideal The platform of our party closed with a brief statement of the partys IdeaL It favors such an administration of the government as will insure as far as hu man wisdom can that each citizen shall draw from society a reward commensu rate with his contribution to the welfare of society Governments are gpod In proportion as they assure to each member of society so far as governments can a return commensurate with individual merit The Divine Law of Rewards There Is a Divine law of rewards When the Creator gave us the earth with lu fruitful soil the sunshine with its warmth and the rains with their mob ture he proclaimed as clearly as if his voice had thundered

suffrages of the American people I promise if intrusted with the responsibilities of this high office to con secrate whatever ability I have to the one purpose of making this In fact a government In which the people rule l a government which will do justice to all and offer to every one the highest possible stimulus to great and persistent effort by assuring to each the enjoyment of his just
