CHICAGO. 111.. Augr. 5. Declaring
that parties exist for the people and not
people for the parties and assailing the
Democratic party as too neutral, ci
Penator Alfred J. Beveridge sounded the
keynote of the new Bull Moose party
here today In his opening address as
tenjporary chairman of the Progressive
National convention. The "boss sys
tem" of politics he said Is unknown and
Impossible under any other free gov
ernment In the world. He paid tribute
to the progressive instincts of the
South and declared that through the
two old parties the tragedy of the Na
tion Is continuing. The uncertainty of
American business he touched upon and
said the new party would try to rem
edy the prevailing Ills. In part Mr.
"We stand for a nobler America. We
stand for an undivided nation. We
stand for a broader liberty, a fuller
Justice. We stand for social brother
hood as against savage Individualism.
We stand for an intelligent co-operation
instead of a reckless competition.
We stand for mutual helpfulness. In
stead of mutual hatred. We stand for
'equal rights' as a fact of life Instead
of a catch-word of politics. We stand
for the rule of the people as a political
truth, instead of a meaningless pre
tense. We stand for a representative
government that represents the peo
ple. We battle for the actual rights of
Programme Ik Plain.
'To carry out our principles we have
a plain programme of constructive re
form. We mean to tear down only
that which is wrong and out of date;
and where we tear down we mean to
build what is right and fitted to the
"We hearken to the call of the present.
AVe mean to make laws fit conditions
as they are and meet the needs of the
people who are on earth today. That
we may ' do this, we found a party
through which all who believe with us
can work with us; or rather we declare
our allegiance to the party which the
people themselves have founded."
"The root of the wrongs,"' continued
the speaker, "which hurt the people
is the fact that the people's Govern
ment has been taken away from them.
Their Government must be given back
to the people. And so the first purpose
of the Progressive party Is to make
sure the rule of the people. The rule
of the people means that the people
themselvs shall nominat as well as
elect, all candidates for office. Includ
ing Senators and .Presidents of the
"What then must we do to make
American business better? We must
do what other nations have done. We
must end the abuses of business by
striking down those abuses instead of
strlki.ig down business itself. We must
try to make little business big and air
business honest Instead of striving to
make big business little and yet letting
it remain dishonest. Aa the Sherman
law no stands, no two business men
en arrange their mutual affairs and
be sure that they are not lay breakers.
Under the decrees of the courts, the oil
and tobacco trusts still can raise prices
unjustly and already have done so.
ew Bualnesa Lawi Planned.
"We mean to put new business laws
on our statute books which will tell
American business men what they can
do and what they cannot do. The next
great business reform we must have to
steadily increase American prosperity
Is to change the method of building
our tariffs. The tariff must be taken
out of politics and treated as a busi
ness question Instead of as a political
question. The greatest need of busi
ness is certain but the only thing cer
. tain about our tariff is uncertainty. ,
"A tariff high enough to give Amer
ican producers the American market
when they make honest goods and sell
them at honest prices but low enough
so when they sell dishonest goods and
at dishonest prices foreign competition
can correct both evils; a tariff high
enough to enable American producers
to pay our worklngmen American
wages and so arranged that the work
lngmen will get such wages; a busi
ness tariff whose changes will be so
made as to reassure business Instead
of disturbing it this Is the tariff and
the methods of its making in which. the
Progressive party believes.
"The Payne-Aldrlch law must be re
vised Immediately, in addition to these
Abolition of child labor in factories,
mines and sweatshops and a plan for
old-age pensions were included in the
progressive platform by the speaker,
who Incidentally favored woman suff
rage. Equal Suffrage Indorsed.
"Modern Industrialism has changed
the status of women." he said. "Wom
en now are wage-earners In factories,
stores, and other places of toll. In
hours of labor and all the physical con
ditions of Industrial effort they must
compete with men. And they must do
it at lower wages than men receive
wages which, in most cases, are. not
enough for these women workers to
"Toward women the Progressive
party proclaims the chivalry of the
state. We propose to protect women
wage-earners by suitable laws, an ex
ample of which Is the minimum wage
for women workers a wage which
shall be high enough to at least buy
clothing, food and shelter for the worn
"The care of the aged is one of the
most perplexing problems of modern
life. How is the worklngman with less
than $500 a year and with earning
power waning as his own years aa
vance. to provide for aged parents or
other relatives in addition to furnish
ing food, shelter and clothing for his
wife and children?
"The Progressive party is the help
ing hand to those whom a vicious in
dustrialism has maimed and crippled.
We are for the conservation of our
natural resources, but even more we
are for the conservation of human life.
Our forests, water power and minerals
nre valuable and must be saved from
the spoilers, but men. women end chil

"Because women, as much as men,
are a part of our economic and social
life, women, as much aa men, should
have the voting power to solve all eco

women are theirs as a matter of natural
