Republicans and Democrats
Alike Are Condemned.
Committee of 4 8 Chairmen Sees No
Hope In Promises of Either
National Platform.
'. J .-'' ....
CHICAGO. July 10. The republican
and democratic parties were de
nounced as "the right and left wings
of the same bird of prey" at the
opningr of a proposed "third party"
national convention here today.
Sounding the keynote of the assem
blage called together by the commit
tee of 48 to adopt a platform and
place in the field another set of
candidates for presidency and vice
presidency, Allen McCurdy. tempor
ary chairman, charged that the two
big parties had evaded paramount do
mestic issues at a time when what
the country needs is "fewer laws and
more freedom."
' The abolition of special privilege.
Mr. McCurdy said, was the issue
around which the new party would
appeal to the voters In November. He
said the party proposed effecting that
said the party purposed effecting that
and removing the sources from which
privilege derives its power.
Public Ownership Advocated.
"To accomplish this purpose," he
declared, "it proposes public owner
ship of transportation and of the
principal basic resources of the coun
try and declares that all land held
out of use for speculation should be
forced into use by taxation."
Attacking the republican and demo
cratic platforms Mr. McCurdy said
their only difference is the number
of words used to say nothing.
"The republican bid is bold," he
continued. "It reads out of its coun
cils every man and woman who ever
stood for any form of human rights:
adopts a pbitform that evades, equivo
cates or straddles every living issue;
paves the way for a war by which, in
exchange for the lives and treasures
of the people, Mexican oil shall be
delivered to the interests; indorses
the infamous Ksch-Cummins hill over
the protests' of farmers, workers and
informed citizens, and consistently
crowns its work by nominating as
randidate for the presidency of the
United States in the year 1920, a
proved, steady, wheel-horse politician,
guaranteed to stand without hitching
' who learned all the politics he ever
learned in the satisfactory and thor
ough school of Marcus A. Hanna and
Joseph B. Foraker, way back in the
golden age marked by the Standard
Oil scandals.
Democrat i- Platform Brazen.
"The democratic bid is more than
i bold; it is brazen. With mild reserva
tions, it not only, claims a partisan
credit,, which belonga to the whole
nation, for fighting and winning the
war, but it declares that it admin
istered the conduct of that war with-
- out the taint of scandal.

Display of Free Speech
Alarms Government.
Policy In Siberia Is Scored and
California Legislation Fig
ures In Debate.
TOKIO. July 10. (By the Associat
ed Press.) Not since the advent of
constitutional government has Japan
seen-euch " political turmoil as that
prevailing during, the present sitting
of the diet. . The government appar
ently is serene in the conviction that
it will have the support of Selyu
Kal, or majority party. Nevertheless,
in the fierce attack which the oppo
sition is making upon it. a display of
liberal and free speech has developed
that .observers believe is destined to
have an important effect on the de
velopment of constitutional govern
ment In Japan.
Repeated allegations that the gov
ernment was controlled by the mili
tary. especially with regard to its
Siberian policy, were followed by the
sensational announcement of Yukio
Ozaki. former minister of justice
who recently returned to Tokio from
a visit to America and Europe, that
henceforth he would abandon all
parties and wage an independent
fight to defeat militarism. M. Ozakl
declared that only through the over
throw of militarism could the good
repute of Japan in the world be re
stored to its former luster. He said
he had abandoned- the Kensei-Kai.

titude conflicted with the policy

"The introduction of a budget of
which one-third is devoted to a
bloated increase of armaments is the
height of absurdity," M. Ozaki as
serted. "Japan never will win her

The climax of the attacks in the
diet against the cabinet was reached
yesterday when Representative Nagai.

fessor in Waseda university, de
clared: The Lenine autocracy is reigning
in the west;, the Hara autocracy in

He charged that the government,
by its unconstitutional dissolution of
the last diet to avoid aetion on uni
versal suffrage, had invited danger
ous thoughts of class strife. The gov
ernment's action, he declared, was
against the spirit of the constitution
granted by Emperor Mutsuhito.
Mherian Policy la Scored.
Another member, Kotaro Mochizu
ki, referred to the anti-Japanese agi
tation in California. He scored the
Siberian policy and said he possessed
proofs that different views were held

The opposition parties Introduced
a resolution declaring lack of confi
dence . in the ministry by the house
and listing five reasons why the gov
ernment should retire. The first or
these was that, ignoring the popular
demand, the ministry had refused to
introduce universal suffrage. The
second charged that, by dissolution of
the last diet, the gpvernment had
sacrificed the interests of state to
those of party.
Blundering ollcy Charged.
The third declared that by its blun
dering economic policy the govern
ment had plunged the country Into a
financial crisis. The fourth set rortn
that the way the government had con
ducted its foreign policy had gained
the derision and contempt of the pow
ers. The fifth claimed that the gov
ernment's indefinite Siberian policy
had resulted in the recent tragedy at
Nikolaievsk. Siberia, where 700 Japa

viki. Viscount Uchida, the foreign min
ister. Baid both the Japanese officials
and the people of America were striv
