Democrats Making Republican Ma
terial. Democratic leaders in Congress are
; now making campaign material. To
be sure, it is not very good material,
j but the best obtainable. A party
without a record, or whose small
j record is so bad that it cannot be
i defended is not in a very strategic
! position when it comes to speech
! making for campaign purposes.
The general point of Democratic
I attack is the tariff, and yet we can
! not find in a single speech any refer-
ence to the only Democratic tariff law
I of the past half century. There is
no allusion whatever to the condi
tions of business, of labor, or capi
tal, under the operation of the Wil
son Gorman law.
It is interesting to compare these
Democratic and Republican speeches.
The Democratic speeches are, of
course entirely negative, excepting
where assertions are made as to
what the party would do if it had
the chance, but there is no mention
made of what it did do when it did
have the chance. On the other hand,
the Republican speeches are filled
with tables of figures, which the
records of commerce, with the
amounts of revenue, with the in
creased number of those employed,
and the increased wages which have
come under our new law. The Dem
ocratic orator claims that prices
have been raised because of the tar
iff; the Republican orator tells us
in reply that the tariff was reduced

has been raised. The speeches which
