LOUISVILLE. Ky., Oct. 13.-tr
AP) The republican party was
accused ' tohight: by Governor
Smith in an address prepared for
his one and only speech in iwen
ttrcky with having "grossly mis
represented' the1 democratic atti
i n. tha cmefttlon of the tariff.
Ha said in his manuscript he had
predicted at the outset of the cany
naian that this would be attempt
ed and that, he had. lived to see
his prediction realized. .
Own Ideas Are
Elaborated Upon - .
Ths democratic presidential
nnmintA at ths same time out
lined in his prepared address what
he described as a "prescription"
which to his mind for all time
would meet the situation on this
issue. . He argued that under this
hraserfotion . nothing would be
done to "embarrass or interf erf
in any way with the legitimate
progress of business whether It he
big or small." .
Emphasizing a belief that the
"tariff should be taken out of pol
itics" the. aovernor in his prepar
ed text declared that "neither the
Underwood nor any other tarn!
bill will be the pattern for carry
Ing . Into: etf ect" the; principles he
set forth and that the democratic
aartr. iT niaeed in powery would
"be otruesed to any general tariff

voted a part of the address to an
Uttack upon Secretary . Jardine,
who be said had ."deUberately and
wilfully misrepresented my views,
to the American people, and then
added that b asserted "with con
fidence" that neitner laoor, nor
industry, nor agriculture, nor
business, had ancything - to fear
from democratic success at the
