THE panic of 1!)0T, coming without any legitimate
excuse when the republican party bad for a decade
been in complete control of the federal government,
furnishes additional proof that it is either unwilling
or incompetent to protect the interests of the general
public. It has so lined the country to Wall Street
that the sins of the speculators are visited upon the
•whole people. While refusing to rescue the wealth
producers from spoilation at the hands of the stock
gamblers and speculators in farm products, it has de-
posited treasury funds without interest and without
competition in favorite banks. It has used an emer-
gency for which it is largely responsible to force
through congress a bill changing the basis of bank
currency and inviting market manipulation, and has
tailed to give to the 15,000,000 depositors of the
country protection in their savings.
We believe that insofar as the needs of commerce
require an emergency currency, such currency should
be issued, controlled by the federal government and
loaned on adequate security to national and state
hanks. We pledge ourselves to legislation under
which national banks shall be required to establish a
guaranty fund for the prompt payment of the deposi-
tories of any insolvent national bank under an equita-
ble system which shall be available to all state bank-
ing institutions wishing to ii.se it.
We favor a postal savings bank if the guaranteed
bank cannot be secured and that it be constituted so
as to keep the deposited money in the communities
■where it is established. But we condemn the policy
of the republican party in proposing postal savings
banks under a plan of conduct by which they will
aggregate the deposits of rural communities and re-de-
posit the same while under government charge in the
banks of Wall street, thus depleting the circulating
medium of the producing regions and unjustly favor-
ing the speculative market.—Plank of Democratic
ROOSEVELT CRITICISED BY SENATOR BOIRNE.
HERE is an interesting dispatch from Washington,
Although he worked unceasingly for the renomi-
nation of President Roosevelt, Senator Jonathan
Bourne, Jr., of Oregon, does not hesitate to criticise
the methods employed to encompass the nomination
of Mr. Taft.
"Anxious for the perpetuation of his policies,"
said Senator Bourne, "President Roosevelt has intro-
duced an element of danger into our political life. As
a result of the methods employed to nominate Secre-
tary Taft, residuary legateeship in the White House
is more eminent having this precedent than perpetui-
ty of dynasty in a monarchy where natural causes op-
erate to extinquish families.
Secretary Taft's letter of acceptance^ should anti-
cipate Democratic opposition in respect to this mat-
ter, and in terms quite apprehension for the future.
He should state specifically that if the people elect
him as their chief public servant he will in no man-
ner attempt to select his successor other than to give
loyal support to his party's selection."
Taft's mouth may be large enough, but he will
not put his foot in it, just because he can. To pur-
sue the course urged by Senator Bourne would con-
stitute a confession too astounding for even Taft, with
his limited experience in politics, to father. Taft's
friends will never permit him to give the inside facts
regarding the forces that brought about his nomina-
tion. And it might be well to remember just here
that ex-Governor Odell, of New York, gave out an
interview at the Chicago republican convention in
which he gave it as his opinion that "Taft is not the
real choice of more than fifty of the delegates; his
nomination is due almost wholly to the coersive tac-
tics practised by Roosevelt and the army of federal
THE democratic party stands for democracy; the
republican party has drawn unto itself all that
is aristocratic and plutocratic.
The democratic party is the champion of equal
rights and opportunities to all; the republican party
is the party of privilege and private monopoly. The
democratic party listens to the voice of the whole peo-
ple and gauges progress by the prosperity and advan-
cement of the average man; the republican party is
subservient to the comparatively fsw who are the ben-
eficiaries of governmental favoritism. We iuvite the
co-operation of all, jregardless of previous political ftf
filiation oi past difference, who desire to preserve a
government of the people ly the people and lot the
people and who favor such all administration oi the
government as will insure, oh far as buman wisdom
can, that each citizen shall draw from society a re-
ward commensurate with his contribution to the wel-
fare of society. Democratic National Platform.
