The platform follows: ilfht To Local Self-Oovernment. lore and more the people are be- governed; less and less do they m themselves. The rights of the ite are rapidly being usurped by the «ral government; local authority 18 way to dictation from Harris- Mtfg. The Democracy of Pennsylvania " ises this trend in government and IS upon the people of this state come to Its support in its battle to intain both the principle and the :tlce of states' rights and local '-government. Democracy and the Eighteenth "*' Amendment. J t paramount Importance is: Pese of the American constitutional «|»tem, menaced by the Eighteenth Snendmcnt. «The basis of free government is in- VMved. "this amendment prevents the repre- § natives of the people from malting changing their laws affecting r private life and local customs; ch right is essential to our form ol government as guaranteed by the ffturth article of the Constitution. The police power of the states is be- absorbed by a bureaucracy at ihlngton. ial authority is claimed by state federal courts and officers, re- Blfltlng in arbitrary and corrupt prac- tfces. Double punishment is inflicted fjj& the same act, which is unjust and iresslve. advocate the immediate repeal £ the state enforcement act, known the Snyder-Armstrong act. •fiffe favor repeal of the Volstead act. "(We favor the removal of the Eigh- ttftnth amendment from the federal Constitution, and. to that end we fa- the submission by congress of amendment to conventions elected 5 the people of the states, as probed for by article five of the Con- adtutlon. J Tariff. •The tariff has gone beyond the lim- t >f being reasonably protective and Becoming prohibitive of all impor- on. This developing policy is not more grossly selfish than it is blind- lj£ short-sighted. While it can and •vrtll prevent all imports, it will at the •fline time destroy all exports, and tS* net result will be to the disadvan- of the American laborer, farmer manufacturer. *' Branch Banking. ^Concentration and centralization of p»Jittcal, industrial or financial con- t»l are all alike inimical to the wel- flre .of the people generally. We vSirn the peope of both state and na- tBn of the ultimate purpose behind pgbpaganda now under way for b5»nch or chain banking.

Public Service Commission. We advocate that the public service commission be adequately equipped and that its members be relieved from political or corporate influences, so that it can be made to serve faithfully its high public function. The remedy of existing or past evils in the administration of the commission docs not lie in its abolition. It must be free from all coercion, even from a governor, and it must be subservient to no interest except the law impartially and equitably enforced for the benefit of all the people. Taxation. The people are overburdened with taxes. This condition causes increasing distress in city and country alike. The Democratic party pledges itself to the honest effort to reduce taxes and thereby lessen the burden now Footer's CLEANERS AND DXERS 1111 llth St. Phone 5179 weighing so heavily upon the people of the state. In this connection we mention specifically the present gasoline tax, which should be cut in half under a sound business administration without hindering the progress of the good road development. Coal and Iron Police. We favor the abolition of the coal and iron police, and we are opposed to any such body's being vested with the authority of the state, but selected and paid by private individuals or corporations who are free to control and direct them for their own coercive purposes. State Constabulary. We oppose the degradation of the FOR CONSTIPATION effective in smaller doses SAFE'SCIENTIFIC r "YES INDEED Madam—you'll find that this Inlaid Linoleum will give you exceptional long service and that it is of the latest design . . .

We affirm labor 1 * Just claim to the right of collective bargaining. We favor restriction of the use of injunctions in labor disputes. We advocate needed revision of the workmen's compensation law, particularly to make its administration more humane and truly just. And, we maintain it to be a duty of our state government to study and treat the matter of un- imployment in a sensible and intelligent manner. Old Age Pensions. We favor statewide old age pensions for those of our citizens who have served faithfully in the social order of our state and have arrived at the time of life where work is no longer possible and whose only outlook' is to be committed to an institution as a public charge. Hnnpltallzatlon of Veterans. We advocate adequate and proper hospitallzation and care for the sick, maimed and incapacitated from our wars. Appellate Courts. The fourteen supreme and superler court judges are all members of the Republican party. Impartial administration of justice requires in each of these high courts representatives of some other political ;hought and legal philosophy. Public confidence in decisions would be 'strengthened by the knowledge that in deliberation, conference and result some mind and voice representing the political opposition had been a factor. Uncontroverted Subjects. We favor good roads and good schools. We approve liberal appropriations for hospitals, for humane prisons for criminals and for reformatories for delinquents, with due regard to sound economy. Fledge.
