Hickman, Kentucky. Taylor Will Return. It is announced on the authority of a close friend of former governor W. S. Taylor, of Kentucky, that Mr. Taylor will return to Kentucky from Indianaplolis for trial on a charge of complicity in the Goebel murder case immediately after the November election. It is also considered probable that the case, up on change of venue, will be trans ferred to Louisville. Mr. Taylor has always stated his willingness to return to Kentucky and stand trial, provided that he could secure a fair trial and would be granted bail. During his can vass for governor, A. F. Willson stated that Mr. Taylor would certainly return to Kentucky for trial If he was elected and that Mr. Tay lor would be given a fair trial. Information from Frankfort is that Gov, Willson has decided not to bring this matter up pending the campaign. He is determined not to make the Goebel cases a political issue and will take no steps until the election is over. Immediately after the election however, he will notify Mr. Taylor that the time has come for him to face trial and dispose in one way or other of the charge against him. Aged Man Dies. R. J.

The United States Crusier, Tacoma was in port, and one of her launches won the prize for best decorated boat. They represented Indians. Fifteen boats participated.

The Sister Mary Goes to Sea. With his mother's sobbed blessing and his father's strained words of parting ringing in his ears, Jerry Chambers boarded the old ship Sister Mary a few minutes after seven o'clock tho next morning. In his pockets was 25 In money and In a small satchel were clothing and other things not fotal value of $25. Capt. Ilulger was gruffly Issuing orders up forward, but his face lost Its sternness when ho saw Jerry, t "On time. I sec," said he. "I reckon you've made n good enough start." "Where are we bound for, captain?" promptly nsked Jerry, who had been in a stew of wonder as to the vessel's destination. "I'll tell you all about it as soon as I get time." said tho captain. With this on his Hps he started across the deck. Jerry took his satchel Into the dingy old cabin, returning almost immediately, to tho deck, where all hands were busy in final preparation for the departure. He further worked his way into the officer's good graces by volunteering his assistance, but tho griz zled old salt snggested that ho would bo more serviceable out of the way of the men, who knew what to do and how to do it. Ho went up forward, away from the other men, and, lighting his pipe, fell to picturing tho possibilities of his remarkable adventure. Tho longer his eyes, looked In tho direction of his old home tho more strongly did he realize the sacrifice he was making to earn an enduring right to his personality. "I did my level best to make peace with father," he mused, "but," and tho spirit of resentment again flared up, "he wouldn't let me. He was the unreasonable one." Although he felt that his action was Justified, he went to sea' with a new love for Wallace Chambers. As the old vessel glided away from her pier a spirit akin to remorse and despondency seized him, and he went to the cabin In order to escape seeing his beloved New York fade from his Sitting at tho captain's table, view. ho started to read a novel, but the book had no charm for him. Ho was alone until tho boat was well away from the Hook, when Capt. Dulger joined him. "What's your namo?" asked tho cap tain, drawing up a chair and reaching for a bottle of whisky. "Gerard Chambers they call mo 'Jerry for short." "Well, Jerry, I've got time to talk about this trip now." Ho tilled a turn bier almost full of liquor and cocked bis feet upon the table. "I am all ears," said Jerry, leaning forward. "Well, sir, tho Mary aJn't bound for no port straight across and them guns below ain't meant for no tralnln' school 5" Jerry was a picture of startled In forest. His eyes were wide open and his lower Hp was down. Tho captain woro something of a guilty smile. "The guns are not for a training school?" Jerry exclaimed. "No, idr eo! Them guns are meant for somethln' moro'n mere school kids I don't reckon they'll over bo Intro duced to blank ca'trldges." Tho old sailor looked thoughtfully at tho floor for a minute and then added: "1 reckon you know all tho world ain't as peaceable as tho U. S. A., don't you?' "I suppose there aro strifes somewhere," said Jerry, Ills mind whirling. "Well, to como right down to tho fliio p'int," went ou tho captain In a tone, "this boat 'n' me's buslness-IIkengaged In n little movement that ain't Just o' tho sort to appeal fav'bly to tho U. 8. gov'ment.

"That'H tho trick perzacklv," an , j ' nil responsibility?" "I'm not entirely responsible for my supercargo. You see, ho takes some chances hlsse'f. You was looking for excitement?" "Some, perhaps," floundered tho seventh person. "Who vas In charge of the other cargo?" "A nice young fellow a little more hardened 'n you, I reckon." "Why Isn't he In charge of this lot? Ho had the experience." "Well, I'll tell ydu. Jerry. Things didn't go Just accord In' to program last time. To como right down flat, we was s'prlsed. I had arranged with Rnrado to land the guns on tho main coast, about 100 mile below Pandnro, tho capital, but there must 'a' been a cat nt the rathole. The gov'ment got wind o' the deal and set about to spllo our plans. It near dono It, too. We managed to land the guns, but just ns we wus takln' off the last boxes one o' tho gov'ment gunboats come down ou us. We was In a position to move at short notice, and we pulled away as fast as we could. Tho gunboat kept gettln' closer 'n' closer, and I'd about give up hopo o gettln' nway She sent n Dill across our bow. and jrist as I was glvln' orders to slow down, I noticed the chaser check up suddenly. I took a long chanco and Wo got away. Tho gun sprinted. boat busted an engine, wo jedged,. nnd that was the on'y thing thnt saved our hides from perforation. It was a great streak o' luck!" There was a gleam of triumph in his eyes and ho shook his head em phatically. Jerry's mouth, was open and his eyes were llko burning coals. 'And tho fellow In charge of the guns?" he nsked. He was on shoro when we steamed away." "And now" "We ain't seen him since, but" with a little chuckle "wo bet he's runnln' yet." Capt. Uulger," said Jerry, stoutly. "what am I expected to do in connection with this enterprise?" "You're the supercargo, of course" "And what does that mean In full?" Watch tho guns IN they need wn'tchVi', and see that they get .Into proper hands." Won't the government of "Urania bo sharply on tho lookout for this boat?" "Tho Mary wasn't tho Mary last time. She was tho Spartan then, and we changed tho namo for ience's sake. Hut there ain't goln' to be no trouble this time, Jerry. We're goln' to land tho guns on a little Isl andcalled Rlngo Island DO mile off tho upper coast. You ain't weakenln', arc yolt?" "And, captain, If I should decline to act In this capacity?" "Hut you ain't goln' to decline now," smiled tho captnln, most convincingly. Jerry's philosophy was,qulck to overconio his excitement and to dlsgulso tho fear that was within him. Ho determined to employ his diplomacy in dealing with tho filibuster. ho "Did you say weakening?" laughed with affected bravado. "Well, - should say not! I suppose I can mako a pretty hard try at what you expect mo to do. Still, I must confess that I had not bargained for this." "Yon must certainly think hard o' me," said tho captain; "but you aro sensible enough to know I couldn't 'a' told you about It on shore. I didn't know who you were; and, comln' right down to It, I don't know who you aro now." seme liquor for himself, Ilulger said. Ud, we ll Im In sight o' Rlngo by dusk tomorrow, If everything goes well Have you anything to suggest" No suggestions nt till, cnplnln," he answered. "I nm ready to act on your Instructltms." "Well. then, we'll mnke final preparation! In tho mornln' get tho gum In shape to put Into the small txi.it.

At last Jerry said: "Captain.

CHAPTER VI. Bulger's Heart and Jerry's Spirit. It was after midnight when Jerry went to his nnrrow bunk. Kor an hour or more ho tossed about with a nervousness that was almost chilling. In n moment of his wildest emotion ho half determined to attempt an escape from tho old vessel, but nn after thought assured him that tho wily captain had planned to keep him under watch all tho time. Ileforo he Anally tell asleep ha was reconciled to his fate, and Just before tils uneasy mind found tenipornry relief ho was experiencing, In a degroo, tho sensation of actually yearning for tho climax to this phasu of his extraordinary adventure. He was on deck ut tho first gray tint of dawn. Hero and thorn members of the small crew were sleeping lu blankets that served as both beds nnd coverings. Tho old boat was moving along at what scorned to him . Tho shoro was barely vlsl'lo. Jerry was standing agahiBt the railing, his eyes lixed on tho dim streaks lu the east, when Capt. Hal gor tamo on deck. "Well!" exclaimed tho captain. "I'm s'pilsed to Had you tip so early. Even Mothor Caroy's chickens nln't off their roosts yet. Didn't you Bleep well?" "I don't think I did. A bunk is a bit nOv to mo, you know." "Sure It wasn't worry that kopt you from rqstlu well?" "1 think uot thai Is, not oxactly worry. Still, I must confess that I did an unusual amount of thinking. When do you expect to reach Hlugo Island?" "Maybo In llvo weeks. Wo'll put In three or four times once at Hu vaua, where I'll bo able to tell you more dellnlte about things that Inter I est you most." snail-puce- "How did you manage to get away with these guns?" "Ily a lectio twist o" tho wrcqst," chuckled the captain. "Wo denied for Havre with a cargo o' merchandise!" "Am I expected to collect for tho guns on this Island?" "You'ro Blinply to get a receipt. That won't bo hard, and as soon as I get It , wo'll nose right back." Jerry thought hard for a full min ute, nnd, while ho realized tho pos slblo dangers, Ills spirit of philosophy gave him strength and courago to dls play it. Ho was, naturally, brave uud feurloss some have said thnt all Oomlnl persons nro bravo and fearless but ho would have been Infinitely more comfortable It tho duty buforo him did not tarry with It such strong possibilities. Ho felt much as a rat In a trup. "Of cuurne, I may count on your full assistance?" "Most certain," said Hulger, In great ' Jerry drank his strong coffee with Capt. Hank Hulger hnlf nn hour later. Notwithstanding the assurance ho had given, tho officer was certain that he detected signs of worry nnd apprehension In the young man's mannors. After a lime ho said: "Lad, I'm gettln' more'n more to tho belief thnt you ain't feelln' Just ns chipper as you might 'causo o' wor- ryln' about what's ahead of us.

Still, ! bcllove you're o' the right sort, nnd I'm goln' to tako a chance. If you want to leave this boat at Havana you can; there'll bo no strings tied to you. Do you want to leave the Mary?" "I'll stick with you, captain!" he said, tho excited emotions raging wildly within. "You may count on me to the flnlBhl" "(load!" cried tho captain, extending his hand, which Jerry gripped firmly as ho brought his teeth together In determination. "Aud you'll be glad of It, I'll warrant." Jerry s heart brightened nnd ho was actually happy. Ills spirit of ndven-- ' turo now wns thoroughly aroused, and ho longed for tho exciting times that he felt suro were nlieud of him. The Sister Mary kept close to shoro all tho way down to Havana, where tho second of the stops was mnde. It was two weeks to the day uftor leaving New York that tho old craft slowly glided Into tho harbor of the Cuban metropolis, whero sovernl dnys wtro spent In rccoallng. Ou tho second dny Capt. Hulger communicated with a representative of the Uranlan revo lutionists Senor Kmlllo Chahara, receiving from him final Instructions for landing tho guns on lllngo island. On the reBt of tho trip tho courso wns well out at sea, tho rocky outlined of the northern parts of South America coining to vlow only nt Intervals of dnys at a time. All the time the Sister Mary crept nlong slowly, the captain using the Jury-rins much ns possible in ordur to savo fuul. On the fourth night uftor tho fifth 'week out of Now York the captain called Jorry Into tho cabin, and his maimer, almost nervous In Its earnest ness, told Jorry that he wus to hoar something of Importance.

"It looks HJir heavy haxe." said he, "That'! Rlngo! We'll make It In three hour." Jerry romalned on the hurricane deck until the ragged outline of the Island could be distinguished plainly. It wax stilt qullo light, and the captain ordered the steam shut down for n time. A stiff wind wan blowing nnd tho water was choppy, making the Sister Mary restless and uneasy. Jerry naturally was excltoA despite the fact that ho tried to keep cool and composed, and when the order rame to put. on steam again his heart beat wildly. The sky wns as clear as a crystal, to the utter disappoint munt of Hulger. It was ntout six o'clock when the vessel crept to within a mile of the shore. Here sho wns swung around nnd all eyes were on the lookout for the white sheet ryi tho cliff. In order that the signal might not be overlooked, three of the small boats were sent closer to land. The ship went on slowly for about two miles farther, when the captain suddenly ordered all steam off. "The first boat sees It!" shouted Hulger, unable to concent his exrlte-mon"Heo, U'h slgnnlln' yet! This Is the place, and yes, sir ee, I can see tho sheet myso'f now) Right straight over there.

C'MNTOW, KlONTttflCr. 8 very noticeable feaThre ture about boys that has been Rained by observation, and in nine cases out of ten, these observations prove correct. Every town school has its "bad boys," generally not many, rarely less than three ncr more than five. After their first two years, or th.y have passed the primary age, this troublesome disposition begins to crop out and they soon become the chief annoyance, and though there are but one or two, they keep things in an uproar and almost ruin every good intent of the school. And thus they go on severely taxing teachers as to know what course to pursue. They forbear with them much, persuade not a little and try all means and methods to win them to n course of right, but it seems all in vain. Thus these boys put in a few years of school life and then away, but their course in the world is no better than when in school. These few "bad boys" become the annoyance of the town, and now the authorities are put to their "wits end" to know what to do with them. Parents, perhaps, .highly respectable, honorable and among the best, for their sakes much is foreborne much overlooked ; but these boys go right on despite pleadings or warnings and next day they are before our courts and next would be behind the bars but for the influence of friends and money.

It makes them capable of taking care of the family, if such responsibilities are placed upon them ; it broadens their ideas and makes them nobler and better. Girls, as a rule, are generally as clearheaded as boys when young, but if, as is the common practice, the girls are brought up to do nothing, to think but little except of dress and amusements, they fall far behind the young man, at the age of 20, in mental ability. What is needed is, that at home and at school, they be taught that to shine in social circles or to roll in wealth is not the highest aim of Dut let them, be taught womanhood, to make a home joyful and happy, and yet be prepared, if necessary, for life's bitterest struggles. Let them understand thoroughly the details of every-dalife, the value of all kinds of commodities used daily, how to make a check, draft, note and receipt. Let them be told the truth about themselves and about the world. They should know something about the snares and pitfalls that beset them. Let them be thoroughly impressed with the fact that on themselves, in a large degree, depends the success of the men they marry. Let them know how to cook, giving them a thorough course in the kitchen. Let them begin where their mothers left y What beautiful and tender associations cluster thick around that word I The thought of it is a very shield ; the name of it has a spell to call back the wanderer from the path of vice, and far away where the myrtle blooms and the palm trees wave, and the ocean sleeps upon coral strands, to the exile's fond fancy it clothes the naked rock, or stormy shore, or barren moor, or mountain with wild height and charms he weeps to think of and longs once more to see.

Here our hearts wear no covering, no armor. Every arrow strikes them, every cold wave blows full upon them. If we would have a true home, we must guard well our thoughts and actions. A single bitter word may disquiet the home for a whole day, but like unexpected flowers which spring up along our path, full of freshness, fragrance and beauty, so do kind words and gentle acts and sweet dispositions make glad the home where peace and blessings dwell.

Publicity as to Campaign Contribu- tions. An effort has been made to secure legislation requiring publicity ns to campnlgn and expenditures; but the contribution Republican leaders, even In the fnce of an Indignant public, refused to consent to i. law which would compel honesty In elections. When tho matter was brought up In th recent Itepubllcsn national convention, the plank was repudiated by n voto of SH) to 81. Here, too, Mr, Tnft has been driven to spologlzn for his convention and to declare himself In favor Popular Election of Senators. of a publicity law, and yet. If you will Next to th corrupt use of money, tho read what he says upon this subject, you will find that his promise fulls far short present method of electing United States trust mngn.ila contributes tion.ooo to elect political friends to office, with a view tn preventing hostile legislation, why should that fact be concealed until his friends are securely seated In their official positions' This Is not a new qpestlon: It Is n question which hn,i been ngllnted n question which th - llepubllcnn leaders fully understand n question which the Itepubllcan candidate has studied, and yet he re fuses to declare himself In favor of the legislation absolutely necessary, namely, legislation requiring publication befora the election. How cnu the people hone to rule, If they are not able to learn until after the election what the predatory Interests nre doing? Tho Democrnllo party meets ths Issue honestly and courageously. It nays: "We pledgo the Democratic party to the enactment of n law prohibiting any corporation from contributing to n campaign fund, and nny Individual from contributing an amount nbove a reasonable maximum, nnd providing for the publication, before election, of all such contributions above a rtnsonnble minimum." The Democratic national committee Immediately proceeded to Interpret nnd apply thla plank, announcing that no contributions would be received from corporations, that no Individual would be allowed to contribute more than 110.000, and that all contributions above 110) would be made public before the election those received before October IS to be made public on or before that dsy, those received afterward to b made public on the day when received, and no such contributions to be accepted within three day of the election.

With n Itepubllcan president to recommend, with a itepubllcan senate and house to carry out his recommendations, why does tho Itepubllcan candidate plead ftr further time In which to do what ahould hae been done long ago? Can Mr, Taft promise to be mora strenuous In the prosecution of wrongdoers than the present executive? Can he ask for a, larger majority In the senate than" his party now has? Does he need more Itepubllcans In the house of representatives or a speaker with more unlimited authority? Why No Tariff Reform? The president's cjose friends have been promising for evral years that ho would attack the Iniquities of the tariff. Wa have had Intimation that Mr. Taft was restlre Under the demands of the highly protected Industries, And yet the Influence of the manufacturers, who have for ?2 years contributed- to the Itepubllcan mmpalgn fund, and who In return havo framed the tariff schedules, has been sufficient to prevent tariff reform. As the present campaign approached, both the president nnd Mr. Taft declared In favor of tariff revision, but tho dato of revision after the election. Hut the pressure brought to bear by the protected Interests has been great enough to prevent any attempt at tariff reform before the election, nnd the reduction thn election Is so hedged about with qualifying phrases, that no one can estimate with accuracy the sum total of tariff reform to be expected In case of Republican success. If the past can be taken aa a guide, the Itepubllcan party will be so obligated by campaign contributions from the beneflclarlra of protection, aa to make that party powerless to bring to the country any material relief from the preient tariff burden. - the cause of the people on this subject. Tho subject was Ignored by tho Republican national convention In 1900; It was Ignored In 1904 and the proposition was explicitly repudiated In ISOx, for the recent Republican national convention, by n vote of M to 111, rejected tho plnnlt Indorsing tho popular election ot senators nnd this was done In tho convention which nominated Mr. Tnft, few delegates from his own state voting for the plank. Personal Inclination Not Sufficient. In his notification speech, the llepubllcnn candidate, spenklng of the election ot senators by the people, says: "Personally, I am Inellncd to favor It, but It Is hardly a party question." What Is necessary to make this n party que, tlon? When the Democratic convention vote, and the llepubllcnn convention rejects the proposition by a vote of seven Indorses a proposition by n unanimous to one, does It not become nn Issue between tho parties? Mr. Tnft can not remove tho question from the nrena of politics by expressing n personal- - Inclination toward the Democratlo position. For several years he has been connected with the administration. Whnt has ho ever said or done to bring this question before the public? What enthusiasm has ha shown In the reformation of tho What Influenco could he exert In behnlf of n reform which his party has openly nnd notoriously condemned In Its convention, and to which he Is attached only by n belated expression of personal Inclination? The Gateway to Other Reform. "Shalt tho people rule?" Every remedial measure of n national chnracter must run the gauntlet of the sennte. The presided may personally Incline toward a reform; the house may consent to It; but ns long as the senate obstructs the reform, the people must wait. Tho president may heed a popular demand; the house may yield to public opinion; but as long ns the senate Is defiant, tha rula of the people Is defeated. The Democratlo platform very properly describes the popular election of senators as "the gateway to other national reforms." Shall we open the gate, or shall wo allow the exploiting Interests to bar the way by the control of this branch of the federal Through a Democratic victory and through a Democratlo victory only, can the people secure the popular election of senators. The smaller parties are unable to secure this reform; the Republican party, under Ita present leadership, is resolutely opposed to It; the Democratic party stands for It and has boldly demanded It. It I nm elected to the presidency, those who nre elected upon the ticket with me will be, like myself, pledged to this reform, and I shall convene congress In extraordinary session Immediately nfter Inauguration, and ask, among other things, for the fulfillment ot this platform pledge. House Rules Despotic sen-nt- ' man," the Democratic party ehsrges th Republican party with being the promoter of present abuses, tho opponent of nnd the only bulwark of prlvatn monopoly. Tho Democratic piny affirms that In this campaign It Is the only party, having a prospect of success, which stands for Justice In government and for equity In ths division of the fruits of Industry. Democratic Party Defends Wealth. Honest ro Wo mny expect those who havo committed larceny by law nnd purchased Immunity with their political Influence, to attempt to rnlse false Issues, nnd to employ "the livery of hoaven" to conceal tholr evil purposes, but they can no longer deceive. The Democrntlc party Is not the enemy of any legitimate Industry or It Is, on tho of honest accumulations. contrary, a friend of Industry and tha protector of that wealth which steadfast represents a servlco to society. Thai Democratic party docs not seek to annihilate ,all corporation; It simply assert that ns the government creates corporations. It must retain the power to regulate and to control them, and that It should not permit any corporation to convert Itself Into a monopoly. Surely of all we should havo the legitimate corporations In our effort to protect business nnd Industry fram the odium which lawless combinations ot capital will. If unchecked, cast upon them. Only by the separation of the good from the bad can the good be mad secure. Not Revolution But Reformation. The Democratic party seeks not revolution but reformation, and I need hardly remind the student of history that (jures are mildest when applied nt once; that remedies Increaso in severity as their application Is postponed. Rlood poisoning may be stepped by the loss of a finger It may cost nn arm or a life the next dBy. 8o poison In the body politic can not be removed too soon, for the evils produced by it Increase with the lapse ot time. That there ara abuses which need to be remedied, even the Republican candidate admits i that his party is unable to remedy them, has bten fully demonstrated during the, last ten years. I have such confidence In the Intelligence as well as the patriotism 6t tho people, that I can not doubt their readiness to accept the reasonable reforms which our party proposes, rather than permit the continued growth of existing abuses to hurry the country on to) remedies more radical and more drastic y; Our Party's Ideal. The platform of our party closes with av brief statement of the party's Ideal. It favors "such an administration of the government as will Insure, as far as human wisdom can, that each citizen shall draw from society a reward commensurate with his contribution to the welfar of society." Governments are good In proportion as they assure to ench member of society, so far as governments can, a return commensurate with Individual merit. The Divine Law of Rewards. There Is a Divine law ot rewards. When the Creator gave us the earth, with ita fruitful' soil, the sunshine with Its warmth nnd the rains with their moisture, he proclaimed, as clearly as If his voice had thundered from the clouds: "Go work, and according to your Industry and your Intelligence, so shall be your rewarM." Only where might has overthrown, cunning undermined or government suspended this law, has a different law prevailed. To conform the government to this law ought to be the ambition of the statesman; nnd no party can have a higher mission than to make It a reality wherever governments can legitimately operate. Justice to All. Recognizing that I am Indebted for my nomination to the rank and file of our party, and that my election must come. If It comes at all, from the unpurchased and unpurchasabla suffrages of the American people, I promise. If Intrusted with tha responsibilities of this high office, to consecrate whatever ability I have to tha one purpose of making this. In fact, a government tn which the people rule a government which will do Justice to all, and offer to every one the highest posslblo stlmutus to g:;at and persistent effort, by assuring to each the enjoyment of his Just share ot the proceeds ot his toll, no matter In what part of the vineyard he labors, or to what occupation, profession or calling he devotes hlmsolf.

A f iw years ago the Republican leader In th housa of representatives were coerced by rmhMc opinion Into the support of an s t, law which had tho ln!orc!nmt Sill it of the requirements of the situation. He says: "If I nm elected president, I shall urge upon congress, with every hop of success, that a law be passed requiring the tiling. In a federal office, of a statement of the contributions rvcelved by committees and candidates In elections for members of congress, nnd 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 sue cess; It Is certainly not on nny encouragement he has received from Itepubllcan leaders. It Is sufficient to say that If Ids hopes wero reullied If, In spite of the adverse action of his convention, he should succeed In securing the enactment of the very law which ho favors, It would kHo but partial relief. He has read tho Democratlo platform; not only his language, but Ills evident alurm Indicates that he has read It carefully. He een had before him th action of the Democratic natlonul committee In Interpreting nnd applying that platform; and yet, he falls tr say that he favors tho publication of the contributions beforo the election. Of course. It satisfies n natural curiosity to find out how an election hns bnen purchased, even when the kuowledK come ton late to be of service, but why should tho people be kept In darkness until tho election Is past? Why should the locking of the door be delayed until the horse Is gono? An Election a Public Affair. An election Is n public affair.

In liO the Itepubllcan national convention waa urged to Indorse the domand for railway legislation, but It platform was silent on the subject. Kven In 1941, the convention gavo no pledgo to remedy these abuses. When the president finally asked for legislation, he drew his Inspiration from throe Democratlo national platforms and he received more cordial support from the Democrats than from the llepubllcnn. The Republicans In the senate dollberatolv defoated several amendments offered by Benator InKollotta nnd supported by tho Democrats amendments embodying legislation asked by the Interstate Commerce Commission. One of these amendments the ascertainment of the value of railroads. This amendment was not only defeated by the senate, but It was overwhelmingly rojected by the recent Itepubllcan national convention and th Itepubllcan candidate has Bought to rescue his party from the disastrous results of this act by expreaslng himself, In a qualified way. In favor of ascertaining the value of the railroads, Over-Issu- e of Stocks and Dondi. s Mr. Taft complains of the of stocks and tfonds of railroads, "for tho unlawful eprlclilnp of directors and for the purposo of concentrating the control of the ralhoad, under one management," and tho complaint well founded, Hut, with a president to point out the evil, and a Itepubllcan congress to correct It, wa find nothing done for tho protection of the public Why? My honorubto opponent has, by his confession, relieved mo of the necessity of furnishing proof; he admits tho condition and he can not avoid the logical conclusion that must be drawn from the admission. There Is no doubt whatever that a largo majority of the voters of the Itepubllcan party recognise the deplorable situ ntlou which Mr. Taft describos, they rec- ognlxe that the masses have had but little Influence upon legislation or upon tho administration of tho government, and fiey are beginning to understand Out utuse Kor u generation, the Hepubll ran party has drawn Its campaign fuyUa from the brnetlclarlea of special legislation, rrlvlltgcs have been pledged and -over-lssu1 senators Is most responsible for the obstruction of reforms.

Tho Republicans gained control of the house as a resul't of the election of mi und in the congress the proposition died In committee As time went on, howuver, the sentiment grew among the people, until It forced a Republican congress to follow tho example set by the Democrats, and then another and anothtr Itepubllcan congrrss acted favorably. Stute after statn has Indorsed this reform, until nears ly of the states have recorded themselves In Its favor. Tho United States senate, however, Impudently and arrogantly obstructs the passage of the Lresolutlou, notwithstanding tho fart that the voters ot the United States, by an overwhelming majority, demand It, And this refusal Is tho mora significant whjn It Is remembered that a number of senators owo their elections to great corporate Interests, Three Democratic national plutforins-t- he platforms ot KM), 1901 and call for a change.

Our platform points out that "the house ot representatives was designed by tho fathers ot the constitution, to be the popular branch of our government, responsive to the public will," and adds: "Tho 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 ot a majority of the members, but has come under the absoluto domination of the speaker, who has entire control of Its deliberations, and powers ot legislation. "We have observed with amazement the popular branch of our federal government helpless to obtain either the consideration or enactment of measures desired bv a majority of Ita members." This arraignment Is fully Justified. The reform Republicans' In tho houso ot representatives, when In tho minority In their own party, are as helpless to obtain a hearing or to secure a voto upon a measure as are tho 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 control of tho organization, despotically suppressed these members, and thus forced a real majority In the houso to submit to a well organized minority. The Republican national convention. Instead of rebuking this attack upon popular government, eulogized congress nnd nominated ns the Republican candidate ' for one ot the men who shared In tri responsibility for the coercion of the house. Our party demands that "tho house of representatives shall ngaln become a deliberative body, controlled by a majority of the people's representatives, and not by the speaker," and Is pledged to adopt "such rules and regulations to govern the house of representatives ns will enablo n majority ot Its members to direct Its deliberations and control legislation." "Shall the people rule?" They can not do so unless they can control the houso of representatives, and through their representatives in give house the expression to their purposes and their desires. The Republican party is committed to tho methods now In vogue In the house ot representatives; the Democratlo party Is pledged to such a revision ot tho rules as will bring the popular branch ot the federal government Into harmony with the Ideas ot those who framed our constitution and founded our government. Other Issues Will Be Discussed Later. "Shall the people rule?" I repeat, Is declared by our platform to bo the overshadowing question, and as the campaign progresses, I shall take occasion to discuss this question as It manifests Itself In other Issues; for whether wo consider the tariff question, tho trust question, the railroad question, the banking question, the labor question, the question ot Imperialism, tho development of our waterways, or any other of tho numerous prob lems which press for solution, we shall And that tho real question Involved In each Is, whether tha government shall remain a mere business asset of favor seeking corporations or be an Instrument In tho hands ot tho people for the advancement ot the common weal. Democrats Have Earned Confidence. If the voters are satisfied with tho record of the Republican party and with Its management of public affairs we can not reasonably ask for a change In administration; If, however, the voters feel that the people, as a whole, have too little Influence In shaping the policies ot the government; If they feel that great combinations of capital have encroached upon the rights of the masses, and employed the Instrumentalities ot government to secure an unfulr share of the to tal wealth produced, then we have a right to expect a verdict against the Re publican party und In favor of the Demo crutlo party; for our party has risked defeataye, suffered defeat-- In Its, effort to urouro the conscience ot th public and to bring ubout that very uwakenlng to which Mr, Taft has referred. Only thoso aro worthy to be Intrusted with leadership In a great cause who are willing to die for It. and tho Democratlo party has proven Its worthiness by Its refusal to purchuse victory by delivering tho peoplo Into tho hands of thoso who have despoiled them. In this contest between Democracy on the one side and plutocracy on tho other, the Democratlo party has taken Its position on the side of uquul rights, and Invites the, opposition ot those who uso politics to secure special privileges and governmental favoritism.
