Now then the Dem- why:: did they put that plank In theiif ocratic party comes along a year and t)l|tfonn? To get votes. Mr. Bryan a half later and writes a platform and ah[d: every member of the Democratic they insert in that platform a plank cojnyention knew that eight hours stating that they are in favor of the constituted a day's y[ork in all govr enactment of a law of this kind, ernhient employment. In 1892 during When tte Denver convention was thje administration of Benjamin Harf about to adjourn Mr. Bryan sent a rlSohf. the. Republican party amended telegram invitinp the members of the thb original eight hour law of JM8- Democratic Xational Committee to ing it applicable to all contrTCl^ visit Mm at T..incoln on their return : let by the government. Th^ to their rcspeitive homes. The com- iocratic partV in their platfonn^ mittee came aind after they had con- nothing about this. They have CTCgated on Mr. Br>-aii '8 beautiful /et gbtten educated to that point, 'awn. were enjoyinK the shade of his lotber plank' in their piatTorm beautiful trees. Mr. Bryan stepped ,: "We are in favor of the enact- out of his house with Mr. Kern at his J Biii of a law by Congress for a geii- elbow holdinK in his hand a state- al employ«»F^* liability act. coverinf ipent which he road to the coramlt- ,-|jury to bodv or loss of life of em- tec. That statement read as follows: ^oyees." 1 liave been in Congress "This j-oar Mr. Kern and myself >i }Jy_lhrec year^ and I have helped have agreed that it is our desire that put two statutes of this character tlie Democratic national committee ^|>oh the statute boolis. We passed tlis year decline to accept any con- thc; first law in the first scssiOu_pf tribulions; from any corporation."' .Mr. t^e I 59th Congress._ It received th^ Bryan and Mr. Korn knew when tliey " ~ "" " " made lliat statement that if such con signature of the President and bJ came a law.^ Last winter tlio Supr r^me Court of the Unitid States d(h , clared this law to be uncoustitutioii- al. They LeJd I that the Republicajt party had peine too far in the interest of Jabor. T^t In our d'^siro to .serve the laboring people we had over-steiv ped the bound.s/ of the Constilntioji and they set-the law aside. Last spring we passed another law on this .suhJect-and it received the slgnatui'e of the Prcsiddnd in May and it is the law of the land today. About two months later thb Democratic partjy come alon? and hold a national convention. They ! adopt a platform In which I thoy state tliat they are jn favbr of a law of this kind, when ev- erj* man of that convention knew that lit was the law of the land toda.v. Wliy .did they write that p'ank In their platform? To get votes. They know that of the many bcueflcient laws upon the statute books today in the interest of labor not one was passed b.v the Democratic ijarty. In their desire to gct,tlic laboriup men's votes in this campaign tlipy nut those two planks In their platform, thinking that by so doing they could fool the laboring^ men and make tbom believe Ihev were really his friend. They have another nlank in their platform. Oh, this platform Js a woij- derful document nnd I wou'd sujrgcsf that every one of you read it tfom beginning to end and do so carefully. T will guarantee to you that If you do .vou will never vote the Democratic ticket. "We demand the immediate' repeal of the tariff on logs." ^\Tien the facts arc that logs have I>ee{n on the free list for 11 years. WTien the Dingley act was pa.ssed in If^s logs were placed on the free list They are on the free list today atiii have been for 11 long years. X^ow th^eii. the D3mocratic party comes alon? and holds a convention out here at Denver and they state in their platform that they are in favor of rdpbaling the tariff on logs when every man in that convention knew that they were already on the free list. Wliy did they write this plank in thei: platform? To-get votes. They knew that the farmers aud business men otj the country felt they were payine too n\u;h for theJr lumber aud we all ajfreo that this is true. The Democratic party thought that by putting a;plank of this kind in their platform -'.hey would mislead the farmer and lake him tljlnk that the Democratic V. »rty was favorable to his interest and were disposed lb help the farmer by putting logs on the free list. They probably thought the farmers would respond more freely with their dollar contributions with a plank of this kind in the platform. I T^oy have another plank in their platform. This Is indeed a remarkable jjocument. They say: "We favor such legislation as will prohibit the railroads from engaging* in business which brings them into: competition with their shippers." The facts are tihat when the Hepburn law was passed two years ago we put into it a section making It impossible for | any railroad to own any Interest of iany corporation where they would be brought into competition with their We fixed the time when shippers. u^^u <."j- —— the provision of this la 'wrijjhonlil become,.operative as January 1. 1909.

It Is Indeed, a veri' remark able document , Tber fitat;e: **We pledge the Democratic iiarty to tlie e&actir.CQt Intb law prohibiting any corporation from contribuung to ''a eanjmlgn fund.'^ A year ago last January Congress passed ajlaw whibh tributions were accepted Tedd.v would nut the" whole bunch in Jail. The Dem'ocrallc party was so afraid that tiie American jieople would not fake them seriously aud would pet the idea in their heads that the Democratic national cominittoe would not obey tills iRetiubllcau statute tliat thoy had to, write a plank in their platform pledging themselves to obey tlic laws of the laud, and even that was not sumcient. Mr. Bryan and Mr. Kern had tiV make a personal appeal to the Democratic national committee to obey t 'at statute. They were sc afraid that they would violate this law aud come within the reach of Teddy's" hip stick. Yes. they tell us that they are in favor of the publicity of campaign contributions. You know this is one of the burning issuefe of this campaign. Wo have in Xebtaska a canipaign nublicity statute, which was' enacted in 1S99. That law provides tliat at the close of a campaign Bverv campaign committee that lias snythins to do with, an election shall file with the County Clerk of the .county in which the committee is located a statement setting forth in detail all the receipts aud disburse- -n.ents of the Committee. The Republican partv of Nebraska have been that law to the letter, and we have suiUKise'l the Democrats were doiii:; likewise. Two or three Tonths ago. however, it 'eaked out some way. who is responsible for the 'eak or where the leak came from J im unprenarcd to say. but it leaked out that four years aeo when Judge barker thought he was running for President and when Mr. Bryan had in Idea that he ;would like to go to *he United State's Senate, when the State'gave its electoral votp to Mr. Roosevelt by a maioritv of Sd.OOO and nut of 100 members of the House of Representatives in our Legislature the Democrats only elected 11 and tut of .IS members of our State Sen•»»e the Democrats failed to elect la <»insle senator- and Mr. Bryan thought he was irunning for the Sen- Htc. In this campaign when the Democrats were> trying to carry Nebraska for .rilTlg* Parker. Tom Allen. Mr. Bryan's own brother-in-law. who Ht.tbat time was Chairman of the t>emocratic State committee of Nebraska trade a trip to New York an«l it is whispered that he eot in toui-h with Mr. Thomas F. Alien, one of the great trust magnates of New York, and when Mr. Allen came home he carried in hu> pockets S15.Q00 to help elect the Democratic ticket that vear in Nebraska. "VMien the campaign closed and the Democratic committee came and filed their staie^ ment with the Clerk of the County in which the heaiTquarters of the Committee Were helj. they failed to ms^ke any account of the receipt of the disbursement of this $15.t'00. It seebs to me that if the Democratic party and Mr. Br.van are so anxious for the nublicity of campaign contributic ns they would have obeyed the Nebraska statute on this subject, which was passed by a Renublican Legislature. Yes. they tell us they are in favor of tJie publicity of campaign cjon- tributlons. Last winter we had ."such a bill un in ConKress. This bill t>ro- vided that every campaign committee that had anything to do wiith bin {he orotic sJi^ilor of the Saaih objected. Uniier the rul^ of the Senate, or I ahotdd aly the lack of rules, it is im- po^iblefto pass any bill except by cbnseQt Tlie>^ objection of one S|?nat<ir will bkick LeglslatiOic This 1)111 failed- to pan on aeodont of the flUUmiter of the Democrats in the Senate; I want to ask yba why It Is ti^ai it the behwM &stlc panjr are In raTorJor the publicity of campaign contributions. Mr. Ryan's own hro- ther-In-li|w and his pommlttee failed to obey the Nebraskk statute on this subject ind why It iras that In Con* gress e^ery Democikt In that body proposes the' enactment of a hill that Is desigi^ ;d to write (nto law the very things tljjey profess to favor. It seems to me ttjat I^ they ekpect the American people to take them seriously on this question they had better begin to practipe wHat they preach. The «jddress of Secretary Wilson yesterday was, one of the features of the day|, Mr." Wilson spoke for an hour ankl discussed briefly some of the phr^es of the work of the agricultural !j department and closed yith a reference to tlie attitude of the Democratic party. His quaint hita at Bryan and the Democrats brought forth a great deal of applause. Mr. Wilson is one.of the old ioned s;|jeakers, who goes after the facts h$ wants and puts them up without flourish the col any ornament or oratorical He traced the growth of utry under Republican rule and discussed the need fo^^a market in this country, which tuc Republican party early saw. The party, he said, htii'd taken up the work of building a liiorket and it had succeeded. Tlieu lie showed how it was destroyed! when tlie Democratic party giien Control. He said the gi'eat trouble' in this campaign was the fact tliat it liad been twelve years since tliosc hard times and that the young voters did not remember about hem. "But;* be continued, "will we have to hav^ four years of Democratic-administration and adversity out of every fifteen in order to show our boys that the proper-Uiinp to do isj to vote the Republican ticket." Referring to Congressman Chas. F. Scot, the Secretary said: "Among all the members of Congress I have met. Mr. Scott ha.s given mojre attention to agriculture in all itsj varied and numerous dctai's than ^y other member of Congrc:;:;. He was a close student of tlie work of the Department before he became Chairiian of the Committee on Agriculture, which has now grown to be one of the great conimitteos of the House! But [since he has become Chairman of that committee he has hecome the Champion of the Depart- qient knd of the farmers of the county. Tpie Department has grown very greatly In recent years. There was a little over two thousand scientist.-? j ind employes in the department when President McKinley was inaugurated. There are now about ten thousand five lundred. .The work of the De- nartment reaches into ever>- State and Territory and comprehends the work I done by the producers and creators; of our wealth on the farm, and cverj'where in tlie United States and the h lands of the seasj brought under our control by the 'Spanioh war. The nork of the Department is divided in nine bureaus, two offices, three divisions, and other rnlndr sub-divisions, I Each bureau has charge of a special line of work and; the scientists |)f that bureau understand that line ipf work, but no sciei|tists understand^ the work of a!' the departments and very few men in the-country tlo. Mr. Fcott is the orte exception. He has Studied the work of. the Department! along all lines and in ail the ramihcations throueh which it works for t£e benefit of the farmers of the country. That's home and abroad. For jthe first time In my experience of twelve years, if the Department is atitacked on the floor..of the House it has a champion. He is ready at all tfmes to explain to the House in detail what the Department is doinc with; any sum of money appropriat ed. and the sum has grown from a little over two millions ten years aeo to a little over fifteen millions at the present time. Tblr is very gratifying to the officials of the Depart- men;. and I am so much pleased with Mr.; Scott and his work along this line; that I regard it as a' privilege to comje into his District and look the people in the face who have such goo^ sense as to send such a representative to Congress. Mr. Scott has already become one of the very best tit for tat debaters In the house, tlioioughly equipped on all points and rea<:y at all times. Of course nobody has any business to_say to a District In Kansas what they should do in re- garil to! their representative, but I wot Id i^gard the absence of Mr. Seo :t from the House as a loss to thcj whcde Department of Asricnlture and to the farmers of the country, as wen as a personal loss to myself.

START THE WINTER RIOtjIT. "S. puor begianiop makes s good eodiug" when a man starts with a •?eDr .ind ends with a mUlion, bat a start with voupy birds in November often means a smasbnp by Decembtf. ''What's wrong with my cockerels? -u September they were a show bird picture, and now their tails are crooked and combs are flop." "Your birds have lost ambition to hold their tails straight because they have roopy colds." A start with colds often kno<:k3 a winter's prospects Into a cocked hat. and all because sonae fellows won't learn to keep stock- *tom running In ''old f«H rains, sloppipg In frosty mnd and exposure to frosty air currents. TLen there's that old snifller that starts to cough up roup microbes when the first frost comes.; She's a case of spare tbe ax and SIM>U your success. She's worse at starting a flock to sneeze than the boys who most made .rou sneexe the top of your head off at school with red pepper. Now. some old stagers can stand sucb knocks. They are /canvasbacks In i-old rains and seem immnne to the oonUrolnating Inflneooe of that old disease breeder you've been foollsb enough (o keep. But what of those beautiful pullets whose combs begin to bloom like roses. Trho are singing their fondelay, who are making their flrst debut with their telltale red opiasbed egg? Your winter egg sales at top notch prices depend on those yonng hens that are seeing their first snow. You can't sell ronpy roasters and keep a reliable reputation.

CT. White Leghorn "egg machines." Flejh producers will also discard •olid black, particolored and any color but white. If they answer the demand their market poultry I will be mostly Whit^-Rocks, White DJottcs and White Orp'ingrons. This al^ means that tbe coming poultry show- will not be "fancy," but "ntllliy;" dot ia foolish judging of "barn!d tio the skin" «nd "seven feathers to a rooster's itall." but the Judging of fine fancy flesh aad »ggs- Tbe revolution is in full swing across the pond and already here.
