Condemned —Views on
Following arc the principal planks
of the platform adopted by the Demo
cratic national convention at Balti
The Tariff Reform.
"We declare It to be a fundamental
principle of the Democratic party
that the federal government under
the Constitution has no right or pow
er to impose or collect tariff duties
except for the purpose of revenue
and we demand that the collection of
such taxes shall be limited to the ne
cessities of government honestly and
"The high Republican tariff la the
principal cause of the unequal distri
bution of wealth; It is a system of
taxation which makes the rich richer
and the poor poorer; under Its opera
tions the American farmer and labor
ing man are the chief aufferers; It
raises the cost of the necessaries of
life to them, but does not protect their
produet or wages.
"We favor the Immediate down
ward revision of the existing high,
and in many cases, prohibitive tariff
duties, insisting that material reduc
tions be speedily made upon the nec
essaries of life. Articles entering in
to competition with trust controlled
products and articles of American
manufacture where aold abroad more
cheaply than at home could- be put
upon the free list.
"We denounce the action of Presi
dent Taft In vetoing the bllla to re
duce the tariff In the cotton, woolen,
metals and chemicals schedules and
the farmers free list bills, all of
which waa designed to give Immedi
ate relief to the masses from the ex
actions of the trusts.
"The Republican party, while
promising tariff revision, has shown
by Its tariff legislation that such re
vision is not to be In the people's In
terests and having bean faithless to
Its pledges of 1908 It should no longer
enjoy the confidence of the nation.
High Cost of Living.
"The high cost of living la a se
rious problem in every American
home. The Republican party In ita
platform attempta to escape from re
sponsibility for present conditions by
denying that they are due to a pro
tective tariff. We take Issue with
them on this subject and charge that
excessive prices result in a large
measure from the high tariff laws en
acted and maintained by the Repub
lican party, and from trusts and com
mercial conspirators fostered and en
couraged by such laws, and we assert
that po substantial relief can be se
cured lor the people until Import du
ties on the necessaries of life are ma
terially reduced. thoej criminal
conspfraciei broken up.
"A private Ihonopoly Is indefensi
ble and Intolerable. We therefore fa-
Tor the vigorous enforcement of the
criminal as well as the J civil law
against trusts and trust officials, and
demand enactment of such additional
legislation as may be necessary to
make 1\ for a private mo
nopoly to exist in the United States.
"We condemn the action of the Re
publican administration in compro
mising with the Standard Oil Com
pany and the tobacco trust and its
failure to Invoke the criminal pro
visions of the anti-trust law against]
tho officers of those corporations aft
er the court had declared that from
the undisputed facts in the record
they had violated the criminal provis
ions of the law.
' "We regret that Sherman anti trust
law has received a Judicial construc
tion depriving It of much of its ef
ficacy, and we favbr the enactment of
legislation which will restore to the
statute the strength of which it has
been deprived by such interpretation.
Income Tax and Popular Election ef
"We congratulate the country upon
the triumph of two Important reforms
demanded in the last national plat
form, namely, the amendment of the
federal constitution authorising an in
come tax and the amendment provid
ing for the popular election of sena
tors, and we call upon the people of
all the states to rally to the support
of the pending propositions and secure

Term of Preeldent
"We favor a single preeldential
term, and to the end urge the adoption
of an amendment to the constitution
making the preeldent of the United
Statea ineligible to re-election, and we
pledge the candidate of this conven

"We oppose the so-called Aldrlch

the country will be largely freed from

to a "reasonable maximum."
The Democratic congress Is heartily
commended for its long list of laws
for the benefit of the people after a
generation of unlimited power by the
Republican party. The next plank
arraigns the Republican party for

developed between William J. Bryan
and Speaker Clark. The visit of Mr.
