admit that no OrIloratlon and no Individual ever has sought to extend its opeltlons or enlarge Its plant under n tariff for revenue only or when such a law bas Men threatened The remedy Is therefore too far reaching Unable or un willing to study conditions and to think out remedies appropriate and fitting thereto the mat of Eloquence seems to have about shut his eyes and trust Into his ltatform a

Free rural mall delivery now reaches millions of our citizens and until overycommuntty In the land resolves the fullwe favor Its extension benefits of the postal servIce We recognized the social and economic advantages of good country roads maintained more and more largely at public expense end less and loss at the expense of the abutting owners lu this work vie commend the growing practice of state aid NothIng so clearly demonstrates the sound basis on wh hour com mercial Industrial and agricultural Interests are founded and the neces sity ot promoting the present continued welfare through the operation ot Republican policies as the recent sate passage ot the American people through a tlnanC disturbance which It appearing In the midst of Democratic I rule or the menace ot It might have equaled the familiar Democratic panics ot the past We congratulate the people and hall with con fldence the signs now manifest ot complete restoration of buslnesss pros perity In aU lines ot trade commerce and manufacture The Republican party passed the Sherman antitrust law over Demo craUc opposition and enforced It after Democratic dereliction But ex perlence has shown that Its effectiveness can be strengthend and Its real objects better attained by such amendments as will give to the federal government greater supervision and control over and secure greater publicity In the mmanngement or that class of corporations engaged In Interstate commerce having power and oPPortunity to elect monopolies The Republican party deslares unequivocally for a revision ot the tarlll by a special session ot congress Immediately following the inauguretion ot the next president In all ttlrlll legislation the true principle ot protection is best main tnlned by the Imposition ot such duties ns will equal the difference be tween the cost ot production ot home and abroad together with n reaSOn IndustriesI maxImum and minimum rates the max by foreign counties against American goods entering their markets and the minimum to represent the Another Republican policy which me normal measure or protection at homust be ever maintained Is that ot generous provision for those who have fought the countrys battles and for the wIdows and orphans ot those who have fallen The Republican party will uphold at all times the authority and integrity of the courts state and federal We believe however that the rule of procedure In the federal courts with respect to the IssuanCe ot the writ ot injunction should ho moro accurately defined by statute and that no Injunction or temporary restraining order should be Issued without no thee except where irreparable Injury would result from delay Its which case a speedy hearing thereafter should be granted The Republican party pledges Its cOntinued devotion to every cause that makes for safety and the betterment ot conditions among railroad employers The Republican party recagnlzea time special needs of wageworkers generally for their wellbeing means the wellbelng ot ali In the interest ot the great mineral Industries or oUr country we earn estly favor the establishment ot a bureau ot mines and mining We approve the enactment or the railroad rate law and the vigorous t enforcement ot the statutes against rebateS and discriminations We believe however that the interstate commerce law should be further amended so as to give railroads the right to make and publish traffic agreements subject to the apr al ot the commission but maintaining always the principle or competition between n4urally competing lines and avoiding the conmoa control ot such lines by any means whatever We favor such lrglslatlon and supervision as wlll prevent the future overissue of stock and bonds by Interstate carriers We adhere to the Republican docterlne ot encouragement to American marineiThe ninny wise and progressive measures adopted ILL the recent session ot congress have demonstrated the patriotic resolve or Republican leadership In the legislative department to keep step In the forward march to better government Notwithstanding the Indefensible lIlbustering of a Democratic ntlncrtty In the house or representatives during the last session many wholesome and progressive laws were enacted Wo favor the establishment ot a postal savings bank systemfor the convenience ot the people and the encouragement ot thrift The Republican party Is commUted to the development ot a permanent currency systety responding to our greater needs and the appointment of the national monetary commissIon by the present congress which will Impartially investigate all proposed methods Insures the early realization ot this purpose e The Republican party has been for more than fifty years the consistent friend ot the American negro We declare once more and without reservation for the enforcement- In letter md spirit ot the thirteenth fourteenth and lIfeenth amendments to the constitution which were dlslgned for the protection and advancement ot the negro and we condemn all devices that have for their real aim his dlsfranchlfcmc for reason ot color alone as unfair utiAmerlron and repugnant to the supreme law or the land We call the attention of the Amer can people to the tact that none of the great measures here adocaled by the Republican party could bo enacted and none ot the steps here prposed could be taken under a Democratic administration or under one lu which party responsibility Is divided The continuance ot present policies therefore absolutely requires the continuance In power of that party which believes

Behalf of the Filipinos A Great Missionary Work That la Certain to Promote Christian Civ ilizationThe of a vitalizing Chris tianity among the Filipinos as advo sated by Judge Taft both before his Speech of acceptance of tho nomination to the presidency and In that doc ument Itself has been widely commented upon In tho pulpits of tbo United States The voice of the cler gy has given earnest commendation to the attitude of Judge Taft wh when governor general of the islands xerted tho utmost influence for amelioration of tho condition of the Inhabitants of the archipelago and that too at the cost of great self sac rifice on his own part in refusing the sent on e supremo bench to which lie was both called and commanded tJy President Roosevelt Never since he first assumed tho burden of tho governorship of the Philip pines has the welfare of the Flllponoa ceased to be close to the heart Judge Taft In his speech of accept once again he reminded the Americans that it is tho duty of this country as a strong Christian and enlightened na tion to give spiritual as well as ma terial aid to the distant brown breth ten Tafta Appeal to Church Rev Albert Hurlstouc pastor of Roberta Park church Indianapolis lad In a recent sermon thus spoke of Judge Tafts appeal to the Christian people of America Mr Taft used words of wisdom In referring to this question in his notifi cation speech His appeal la not only to his party but It Is to the Christian church of America It seems to me that every man whose heart beats loyally to Jesus Christ must rejoice In the statement so truthfully made Mr Taft said Wo have established a government with effective and honest ex ecutive departments in tho Philippines and a clean and fearless administra tlon of justice we have created and are maintaining a comprehensive school system which Is educating the youth of the Islands In English and In Industrial branches we have con structed great government public works roads and harbors we have induced the private construction of 800 miles of railroad we have policed the islands so that their condition as to Jaw and order Is better now than It bas ever been in their history I Mr Taft Is better fitted to speak on this question than any other man In the government today by virtue of Ills close connection with the problem Jils experience and personal observa tion of the work being done hence what ho says will be heeded by the Christian church with Intense Interest I I Influence of Christian Civilization More than ten years before Dewey sailed into Manila Bishop Tbobum our missionary bishop for fifty years dn India predicted that ere long the missionary would tied an open door In the Philippines but God alone knew how the door was to be opened Now we hear Mr Taft saying We are engaged In the Philippines in a great missionary work that docs our nation honor and is certain to promote in a most effective way the Influence of Christian civilization It Is cowardly to lay down the burden until our purpose Is achieved True nor do we believe that tho American peo ple will allow this to be done sacrifice has been made the TheI the redeemed people will ere long Leaven and earth with gladness T selfish are ever lonely and Joyless eI they who bring the sacrifice to altar will ilnd the joy of the Lord j arise within them- According to His Folly Shall tho people rule Is declared by the Democratic platform and can didate to be the overshadowing Issue MOW under discussion It is no issue Surely the people shall rule surely the people have ruled surely tile people do rule Thus Candidate Sherman re plies to Candidate Bryan and if the latter was looking for a straight an swer he certainly got it But those familiar with the mental processes of Mr Bryan know that he would wcl come no reply but that his absurd question was asked to instil doubt In the minds of his more thoughtless fol lowers Democratic Discouragement At the risk of calling down upon our selves further execrations from a few of the faithful and fanatical wo make bold to remark that the indifference of the South Carolina Democrats to tbo cause of Mr Bryan seems to justify onr prediction some months

partys posi tlon on the questions which are at Is sue and an otllcinl Is not at liberty to nsethe authority vested In him to urge personal views which have not been submitted to the voters for their

experiments as used for discovering underground supplies of water one of the geolo gists of the United States geological survey found that at points It turned 111ybut more complete tests showed that the down turning resulted from slight and until watched for uncoiistlimn I changes In the Inclination of his body the effects of which were coniuiuul j cated through the arms null wrists to the rod No tnovemcttt of tic rod from causes outside the body could be do tectcd and It soon became obvious that the view held by other men of science Is correct that the operation of the divining rod Is generally due to unconscious movements of the body or of the muscles of the hand rime ex perlments tamale show that these move atlhas led him to believe that water maybe found The usclessness of the

as the Friars Lands In the Philippines Those lands consisting ot some 300000 acres ot the most fertile soil In the islands were held by priests of certain religious orders but were occupied and farmed by native the land lord with drawal of Spanish authority from the Archipelago the Friars Lands became the tlllbject of earnest controversy The farmer tenants contended that the property should be taken from the priests and thrown open to purchase In small parcels lIy the actual occu pants There was a demand Indeed for the confiscation of the property and flue priests themselves In their ignorance of American methods were fearful hat such a course might be adoptedIt ono of Mr Tarts tasks to settle this serious dispute and ho accomplished It In a manner which not only greatly Increased his own popularity and enlarged AmerIcan prestige In the Islands but developed among the clerical authorities and the tenant farmers a vastlyy more neigh borly spirit and a more harmonious community of Interest than lead ever existed before Mr Tart carefully In vestigated all conditions relating to the Friars Lands Ill consulted the clerical landlords the higher church authorIties und the tenant farmers Then ho went to Rome where his proposals for anamicablo adjustment of the controversy received the cor dial approval of the papal authorities The Friars Lands were purchased for a sum approximating 7000000 Clerical landlordism ceased and the property was divIded Into small par cols and sold on easy terns to former tenants and others desirous of engaging In agriculture The real Importance of this trans action Is appreciated only by those familiar with the manifold and deli cate problems which have been en countered In the work of AmerIcaniz- Ing the Philippines The settlement of the affair by MI Taft removed manently a frultflll source of trlctlon between the civil and the religious In terests of the Islands It laid the foundation for kindlier relations and more intimate cooperation between the civil Government and the author ities of the church It set before the Filipinos a high example of American friendship and tall dealing whIch Is bound to exert a wholesome moral apd educational influence for many years to come In short It may be said without exaggerating that the adjustment of the controversy over the Friars Lands through the efforts of loll Taft has an added safeguard for Christian institutions In the PhilippInes FOR HONEST RAILWAY FINANCE From tllo Republican National Platform We favor such national legislation and supervision all will

Present rand the Future It would be extremelY unkind toy say that Mr Bryan Is fickle In his political belief Ills best frIends would be the last to make such an assertion for they realize thoroughly that their leader when he has once implanted a conviction firmly In his mind clings to It like grim death This Is especially true of Mr- Bryans attitude on tile Sliver ques tion through which he first rose to prominence lIe has very IItte to say about that question at present but that lie Is absolutely certain that It Is a subject of the greatest Importance and that his own particular financial panacea Is the only safe guide for the United States may lie plainly seen from the following extracts from his collected wisdom In an address at the Jefferson Club Banquet at Lincoln Neb December 26 1900 Mr Bryan said The principles for which we con tended In the last campaign still live and wo who believe In them must continue to fight for them An elec tion does not chango principles It only determines what prInciples shall for the time being bo applied In the North American Review In the same month Mr Bryan recorded this declaration of faith To consider this election as de cisive of the money question would be as absurd as to have regarded the election of 1896 as decisive of the tariff question It would bo more reasonable to regard the late election as conclusive upon the question of imperialism or upon the trust question both of which were discussed more by our people than the money question The Increased production of gold has lessened the strain upon gold and has to some extent brought the relief which Democrats propQSed to bring In a larger measure by the rrstoratlon of silver but there Is no assurances whatever that the gold supply even with the new discoveries will be sufficient to maintain the level of prices Favorable conditions have given us an abnormal share of the worlds supply of gold but the scarcity of the yellow metal abroad Is already leading to the export of gold while the increase In the Issue of banknotes Is evidence that we are still short of money here The lie IJllbllcans defend the gold standArd not by logic but by giving It crllllt for better times When prosperity fails the gold standard will lose Its charmSPECIAL tIUIIEmS FROM MR ARYAN It makes the judicious grieve to observe that WllllaDl Jennlngtl Bryan bas at the very outset of his cam paign stifled his voiceworn cry of Equal rights for all specIal privileges to none Probably he Is still solid for equat rIghts for all but on the special privileges end of the prop osition lie has become a hopeless backslider as a few plain facts will show Only a few weeks ago for cxImple Mr Bryan aflame with unselfish de sire that the Denver ticket should be elected raised his voice In oloquient appeal for contrIbutions cadillcratic He admitted that money waa needed but Instead of appealing to all- interest hands regardless of personal or yo ton ho addressed his call to the farmers alone Nobowy else was Invited to contribute The horny handed agrlclllturlst however was urgently requested to step forward and deposit his contribution with the gentlemanly collector about to pass the hat Assurance was given that small contributions would be thank fully received and that If anybody chose to repeat no offense woulu be taken The whole proceeding was charac teristic of the man who Instituted It The farmer farms the land and Bryan farms the farmer But In this fright ened appeal for money for cenpalgn purposes Mr Bryan has dIstinguished the farmers as a class by themselves and has granted to them the special privilege of con tributing towards his olectlon Jus thee to the farmers compels the state ment that they have indulged In no unseemly exultation over the special privilege thus conferred upon them In fact all accounts describe them as singularly reluctant to exercise the privilege at all It Is clearly not their purpose to gointo the show business this year Mr D1ans most amazing proposal as a lllstributor of special privileges however appears In his scheme to compel the Government to Iuarllnteo bank deposits The adoption of that plan would distinguish bank deposi tors as a favored class to Indemnity whoso losses through dIshonest banks all the rest of time people would be beingta bank depositor and would there fore bo a member of this limited class to whom he proposes to award the special privilege of financial Protection at the expense of the masse who are In no way responsible for the dis honesty of bank officials Under that arrangement the tallur of the banks In which Mr Bryan carries deposits would Impose a tax upon his less pros perous neighbors to make rood his lossesThere Is a definite purpose In Mr Dryans change of attitude on Chia question of special privileges and It Is manifestly supported by aui acute regard for the Interests of Number One First he grants to the farmers tM special privilege of fattening his campaign fund In
