Has Aided Labor.
The workingmen of America have
been given a veritable emancipation
by the legal recognition of a man's
labour as part of his life and not a
mere marketable commodity; by ex-
empting hujcin organizations from
processes of the courts which treated
their members like fractional-parts ot
mobs and not like accessible and re-
sponsible individuals: by releasing our
seamen from involuntary servitude:
by making adequate provision for com-
pensation for industrial accidents: by
providing' suitable machinery for me-
diation and conciliation in industrial
disputes; and by putting the Federal
Department of Laljpr at the disposal
of the workiufruian when in search1 of

These things must profoundly dis
turb the thoughts and confound the
plans of those who have made them
selves believe that the Democratic
party neither understood nor wa f
ready to assist the business of the
country in the great enterprises which
it is its evident and inevitable destiny
to undertake and carry through. The
breakins up of the lobby must espe-
cially disconcert them; for it was
through Iho lobby that they sought
and were sure they had found the
heart of things. Tho game of privi-
lege can be played successfully by no
other means (
This record must equally astonish
those who feared that the Democrat
ic party had not opened its heart to
comprehend tho demands of social
justice. We have in four years come
very near to carrying out tho plat-
form of the Progressive party as well
hs our own; for we also are progres
Fought by Wall Street.
There is one circumstance connect
ed with this program which ought to
be very plainly stated. It was resist-
rd at every step by tho interests
which tho Republican party had ca
tered to and fostered at the expense of
the country and these same interests
ar now earnestly praying for a reac-
tion which will save their privileges
for the restoration of their sworn
friends to power before it is too lute
to recover what they have lost. They
fought with particular desperation and
infinite resourcefulness the reform of
tho banking and currency system
knowing that to be tho citadel of their
control; and most anxiously are they
hoping and planning for the amend
ment to the Federal Heservo Act bv
concentration of control in a singla
bank which tho old familiar group of
bankers can keep under their eye and
direction. But while tho "blir men '
wno used to write tho tariffs nml
ommand the assistance of the treas
ury have been hostile all but a few

mi aim uuu me rear mat was once
every day in bis heart that the men
who controlled credit and directed en
terprise from the committee rooms of
congress would crush him is there no
more and will not return to power
the party of masterly inactivity and
mining resourcefulness Is standing
pat to resist change.
The Republican party is just the
party that cannot meet the new con-
ditions of a new ago. It does not
know the way and it does not wish
new conditions. It tried to break
away from the old leaders and could
not. They still select its candidates
and dictate its policy still resist
change still hanker after the old con-
ditions still kno- .no methods of en-
couraging business but the old meth-
ods. When it changes its Ieados and
its purposes and brings its ideas up
to date it will have the right to ask
the American people to give it power
again; but not until them. A new age
an age of revolutionary change needs
new purposes and new Ideas.
In foreign affairs we have been
guided by principles clearly conceived
and consistently lived up to'.
We have been neutral not only bo-
cause it was the fixed and traditional
policy of the United States to stand
aloof from the politics of Europe and
because we had had no part either of
action or of policy in the influences
which brought on the presei:; wm.tmt
also because it was manifestly our
duty to prevent if it were possible
the indefinite extension of the fires
of hate and desolation kindled by that
teriiole conflict and seek to serve
mankind by reserving our strength
and our resources for tho anixious
and difficult days of restoration and
healing which must follow when
peace will have to build its house
Drawing the Line.
The rights of our own citizens of
course became involved; that was in-
evitable. Where they did this was our
guiding principle: that property
rights can be vindicated by claims
for damages and no vodern ration
can decline to arbitrate such claim';;
but the fundamental rights of human-
ity cannot be. The loss of llfo is ir-
reparable. Neither can direct viola-
tions of a nation's sovereignty await
vindication in suits for damages. The
nation that violates these essential
rights must expect to be checked- and
tailed to account by direct challenge
and resistance. It at once makes tho
luarrel in part our own. These are
plain principles and we have never
lost sight of them or departed from
them whatever the stress or the per-
plexity of circumstance or the provo-
cation to hasty resentment. The rec-
ord is clear and consistent throughout
and stands distinct and definite for
anyonfe to judge who wishes to know
the truth about it.

ritory only because there were no mil-
itary forces in Mexico that could pro
tect our border from hostile attack
and our own people from violence and
we have committed there no single
act of hostility or interference even
with the sovereignty or authority of
the Republic of Mexico herself. It was
a plain case of tho violation of our
own sovereignty which could not wait
to be vindicated by damages and for
which there was no .other remedy.
Tho authorities of Mexico were power-
less to prevent it.
Many serious wrongs against tho
property many irreparable wrongs
against tho persons of Americans
have been committed within the terri-
tory ot Mexico herself during this
confused revolution . wrongs which
could not i bo effectually cheiiied hj
long as there was no constituted pow-
er in Mexico which was in a position
to check them. We could not act di-
rectly in that matter ourselves with-
out denying Mexicans the right to any
revolution at all which disturbed us
and making the emancipation of her
own people await our oyn interest and
Must Prepare for Future.
The futurt the immediate future
will bring us squarely face to face
with many great and exacting prob-
lems which will search us through
and through whether we be able and
ready to play the part in the world
that we mean to play.. It will not
bring us into their presence slowly
gently with ceremonious introduction
but suddenly and at once tho moment
the war in Europe is over. They will
be new problems most of them; many
will be old .problems in a new setting
and with new elements which we have
never dealt with or reckoned the force
' tl meaning of before. They will re-
quire for their solution new thinking
fresh courage and resourcefulness
and in some matters radical reconsid-
erations of policy. We must be ready
to mobilize our resources alike of
brains and of materials.
It is not a future to be afraid of. It
is rather a future to stimulate and
excite us to the display ot the best
powers that are in us. We may enter
it with confidence when we are sure
that we understand it and we have
provided ourselves already with the
means of understanding it.
Look first at what it will be neces-
sary that the nations of the world
snouiu an. to make the days to come
tolerable and fit to live and work in;
and then look at our part in what is to
follow and our own duty of prepara-
tion. For we must be prepared both
In resources and in policy.
We must hearten and quicken the
spirit and efficiency of labour through-
out our whole industrial system by
everywhere and in all occupations do-
ing justice to the labourer not only
by paying a living wago but also by
making ull tho conditions that sur-
round labour what they ought to be.
And wo must do more than justice.
We must safeguard life and promote
health and safety in every occupation
in which they are threatened or im-
perilled. That Is more than justice
and better because it is humanity
Wo must " co-ordinate tho railway
systems of Iho country for national
use and must facilitate and promote
their development with a view to that
co-ordination and to their better. adap-
tation as a whole to tho life and trade
and defense of tho nation. ' ThQ life
and industry of the country can b
free and unhampered only If these ar-
teries are open efficient and complete.
I have not spoken explicitly gentle
men of the platform adopted at St.
Louis; but it has been implicit in all
that I have said. I have sought to in
terpret Its spirit and meaning. The
people of tho United States do not
need to ha assured now that that plat-
form is a definite pledge a practical
program. We bavo proved to them
that our promises are . made to be
