great distances down the mountains.
In former times the bark of the

be procured with less expense.

declared to be reasonable and no re-

a Republican senate and house to carry'

: upon a measure as are the Democrats.
In the recent session of the present
Congress, there was a considerable ele-
ment in the Republican party favorable

ers, In control of the organization,
despotically suppressed these mem-
bers. and thus forced a real majority
Sin the house to submit to a well organ-

attack upon popular government, eulo-
glzed congress and nominated as the
SRepublican candidate for vice president
one of the men who shared in the re-
k sponsiblllty 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 people's repre-
sentatives, and not by the speaker,"

read It carefully. He even bhad before
him the action of the Democratic na-
tional committee in Interpreting and
applying that platform; and yet. he
hals to say that he favors the publica-
tion of the contributions before the
election. Of course, It satisfies a nat-
ural curiosity to find out how an elec-
tion has been purchased, even when
the Iknowledge comes too late to be of
service, 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?
S An Election a Public Affair.
An election is a public affair. The
people, exercising the right to select
their officials and to decide upon the
policies to be pursued, proceed to their
several polling places on election day
and register their will What excuse
can be given for secrecy as to the In-
fluences at work? If a man, pecun-
ilarily interested in "concentrating the
Control of the railroads in one manage-
Smeat," subscribes a large sum to aid in
Carrying the election, why should his
part In the campaign be concealed un-
ttil he has put the officials under obli-
gation to him? If a trust magnate
contributes $100,000 to elect political
Friends to office, with a view to pre-
venting hostile legislation, why should
that fact be concealed until his friends
are securely seated in their official po-
This is not a new question; it Is a
question which has been agitated-a
question which the Republican leaders
fully understand-a question which the
Republican candidate has studied, and
yet be refuses to declare himself in fa-
vor of the legislation absolutely neces-
sary, namely, legislation requiring pub-
lication before the election.
Demeoratle Party Promisee Publiety.
How can the people hope to rule, If
they are not able to learn until after
the election what the predatory itntr
eats are doing? The Democratic party
meets the issue honestly and coura-
geously. It says:
"We pledge the Democratic party to
the enactment of a law prohibiting any
corporation from contributing to a
campaign fund, and any Individual
from contributing an amount above a
reasonable maximum, and providing
for the publication, before election, of
all such contributions above a reason-
able minimum."
The Democratic national committee
Immediately proceeded to interpret and
apply this plank, announcing that no
contributions would be received from
corporations, that no individual would
be allowed to contribute more than
$10.000, and that all contributions
above $100 would be made public be-
fore the election-those received before
i October 15 to be made public on or
!before that day, those received after-
ward to be made public on the day
when received, and no such contribu-
(tlons to be accepted within three days
j of the election. The expenditures are
to be published after election. Here
is a plan which Is complete and effec-

Next to the corrupt use of money,
the present method of electing United
States senators is most responsible for
the obstruction of reforms. For one
hundred years after the adoption of
the constitution, the demand for the

What Is neoesmary to make this a party
question? When the Democratic ool-
vention endorses a proposition by a
unanimous vote, and the Republican
convention rejects the proposition by a
vote of seven to one. does it not be-
'come an Issue between the parties?
SMr. Taft can not remove the question
Strom the arena of politics by express-
Ing a peooal inclination toward the
Democratic position. For several
years be has been connected with
the administration. What has he ever
said or done to bring this question be-
fore 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 con-
demned in its conventlo, and to which
he is attached only by a belated ex-
pression of personal inclination?
The Gateway to Otkher Reforms.
"Shall the people rle?" Every
remedial measure of a national char-
acter must run the gauntlet of the
Senate. The president may personally
incline toward a reform; the house
may consent to it; but as long as the
senate obstructs the reform, the peo.
ple must wait. The president may
heed a popular demand; the house my
yield to public opinion; but as long s
the senate Is defiant, the rule of the
people is defeated. The Democratic
platform very properly describes the
popular election of senators as "t*e
gateway 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 bran
of the federal legislature? Throw
a Democratic victory, and through a
Democratic victory only, can the pee-
pie secure the popular election of mn,

to secure this reform; the Republiean

resolutely opposed to it; be Democrate

House Rules Deepotio.
The third instrumentality employed
to defeat the will of the people In
found in the rules of the house of rep-
resentatives. Our platform points out
that "the house of representatives was
designed by the fathers of the consti-
tution, to be the popular branch of our
government, responsive to the public
i will," and adds:
I 'The house of representatives, aa
j controlled In recent years by the Be-
| publican party, has ceased to be a de-

come a dominant sentiment. A con-
stitutional amendment had from time
to time been suggested and the matter
had been more or less discussed in a
few of the states, but the movement
had not reached a point where it mani-
fested itself through congressional ac-
tion. In the Fifty-second congress,
however, a resolution was reported
from a house committee proposing the
necessary constitutional amendment,
and this resolution passed the house
of representatives by a vote which
was practically unanimous. In the
Fifty-third congress a similar resolu-
tion was reported to, and adopted by,
the hgmse or representatives. BotD
the F!fty-second and Fifty-third con-
gresses were Democratic. The Repub-
licans gained control of the house as
a result of the election of 1894 and in
the Fifty-fourth congress the proposi-
tion died In committee. As time went
on. however, the sentiment grew among
the people, until it forced a Republican
congress to follow the example set by
the Democrats, and then another and
