One of that platform’s leading
declaration» w as that it would revise
the tariff. The people bad become
tired of an extreme high tariff, (the
highest ever known in the higtory
of th«* government up to that time)
and they demanded that the sche­
dule» should l«e revised downward.
Mr Taft, in his campaign speeches,
said thetariff was too high and that
the duties should lie reduced.
The people trusted the promises
of these republican leaders ami elect­
ed Mr. Taft. At the same time
both branches of congress were re­
publican by a good working majority
and there was no reason why the
tariff promises made to the people
should not be faithfully kept and
the tariff reduced m the people de­
manded and lielieved would be done.
Note the result.
After Mr. Taft’s election one of
his first official acts was to convene
congress in special session for the
one purpose of revising the tariff.
After some months of investiga­
tion a tariff bill wm passed and with
President faft’s signature, became
a law. In signing the bill, popularly
named the Payne-Aldrice tariff, he
said it wm the best tariff law ever
enacted by the republican party. A
republican congress had made good
a promise made to the people at its
national convention. It had revised
the tariff. Hut when the law wm
analyzed and dissected, it wm found
the revision wm upward instead of

people are fair even to an apponent

they are sure to rear nt Mr Hughes'
methods of campaign.
If Mr. Hughes will admit what

of several gixxl things for which
Mr. Wilson and his congress are

No doubt there are faults which

case with every administration since
the birth of our government.
It is
also true that during every adminis­
tration of the government, some
meritorious measures have bean en­
acted into law. Why not admit an
established fact?
Why not. Mr.
Hughes, admit that the present ad
ministration hp fathered several
meritorious laws? W'hy not admit
that the income tax. direct election
of U. 8 senators, regional banks,
rural credits and several
measures which the American people
think meritorious, are facta? Con­
