Democrats' motto must be, "A private monopoly is indefensible and intolerable.” Provisions must be made to imprison, not merely fine, law breaking capitalists. Protective tariff has been fruit ful source of political corruption. Free trade, optional in its details with the president, could be made the most effective weapon with which to fight the trusts. Mr. lfiyan declares that the un looked-for and unprecedented in crease in the production of gold has enabled the Democratic party to present a united front on the money question. Congress should meet immedi ately after elections—not thirteen months later, as at present. Unit ed States senators should be chosen by popular vote. The United States must sooner or later adopt income tax. Burdens of government should be divided proportionately among the coun try’s people. Railroads should be made the property of the government. The Federal government should con trol the trunk lines and the vari ous States the local lines. Secur ing immediate uniformity of rates is favored as temporary remedy.
