Sections are not permitted to charge initiation fees. All questions of importance arising within the party are decided by general vote. At each meeting of the section a chairman is elected, and the same rule holds good with all standing committees.

Party Platforms in 1906 on National \ssues. THE following references to national questions appeared in the platforms of State Oonventions in 1906. In the platforms of several conventions only local issues were considered. In others local issues predominated and only a general statement regarding national matters was made,
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S ADMINISTRATION.
DEMOCRATIC CONVENTIONS. Missouri.-We believe Theodore Roosevelt insincere, pretending to inveigh against the crimes of trusts and corporations, he openly defended Paul Morten, when, as manager of the Santa Fé Railroad, he was compelled to confess enormous rebates to the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company. It was Roosevelt who advanced the pernicious doctrine that you must punish the corporation, not its officials who cause it to commit the crime. It was Roosevelt who denounced large campaign contributions, while his Secretary of Commerce and Labor was fleecing the corporations out of one of the biggest slush funds ever known in the history of American politics. It was Roosevelt who promised a revision of the tariff during his recent campaign for the presidency, but who has pot in any message to Congress since that time mentioned this great subject. It was Roosevelt who insisted that rather than be held up by the American trusts, the Panama Canal Commission should buy its supplies abroad, and then surrendered to the trusts and purchased practically all supplies from them at trust prices. Whatever applause he has received from the American people is chiefly due to the fact that he has apparently stood for things which the Democratic party has been demanding for years, but which he has lacked the courage to carry through to the end.
REPUBLICAN CONVENTIONS, California.-While to the members of the Fifty-ninth Congress we can and do award all credit for their commendable efforts in support of the measures tending to the advancement of the interests of the people, still we must acknowledge that their efforts were at all times encouraged, supported and sustained by that great living exponent of American manhood and American statesmanship, Theodore Roosevelt.
Delaware. We are proud of the brilliant administration of President Roosevelt and we uphold him in the fight for universal recognition of the principle of a square deal among nations, between the several sections of this country, between the capitalist and the workingman and the corporation and the individual,
Illinois. -We commend the policy of the national administration, directed by the unerring judg. ment of President Roosevelt. His dauntless courage in the enforcement of the laws and the determination to see to it that, in so far as the power of his great office will permit, every man shall have a square deal, has characterized him as one of the bravest, most fearless and most just men who ever held the high office of President of the United States. Under his wise and energetic administration his influence for good has not been confined to our own country, but the influence of the United States among the nations of the earth, both in war and in peace, a mong the great nations less than among smaller States, has been a potential factor in all that works for the good of mankind
Indiana.-We approve and applaud the administration of President Roosevelt. From the very first it has been one of the most notable in American history. During his administration and upon his initiative the Department of Commerce and Labor has been established; the law made to prevent railroad rebates; legislation for the Panama Canal enacted and work on the gigantic enterprise begun; provision made for the irrigation and reclamation of the arid West; military government abolished in the Philippines and a system of civil government established in its place, and other laws placed on the statue books for the lasting benefit of the whole people. President Roosevelt's indorsement of the laws against trusts has not only lessened the law breaking, but resulted in the widespread novement for law enforcement throughout the whole nation. President Roosevelt has earned the unprecedented popularity which resulted in his election by the greatest majority ever given an American President, and the Republicans of Indiana join with the Republicans of the whole nation in an enthusiastic indorsement of his administration,
lowa.-We commend the inspiring character, important achievements and undaunted leadership of Theodore Roosevelt, It is with exceeding pride that we contemplate the confidence reposed in him by the people of our country and the admiration which he commands from the whole world.
Kausas, -The vigorous, able and wise administration of President Roosevelt commands our enthusiastic approval as it has won the plaudits of our countrymen, regardless of party.
Mlaine.-We commend the policy of the Republican party in national affairs, and we especially indorse the magnificent, able, fearless and patriotic administration of President Roosevelt, and we ask the people of this State to sustain it by their votes.
Massachusetts.-We record again our confidence in the courage, wisdom, honesty and patriotism of Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States. Under his leadership misconduct in public
office has been exposed without pity and punished without mercy; the law for the selection of officials by their test of merit has been enforced and extended; the standard of appointments has been raised: the rights of those who labor for the Government have been protected; the public lands have been rescued from those who had obtained thein by fraud, and the offenders have been punished; the laws for the suppression of unlawful combinations of capital and against unlawful discriminations by railroads have been enforced; the army and navy have been strengthened and made efficient; the public revenues have been adequate to meet the abundant expenditures made necessary by our national growth; our new possessions have been wisely administered; the construction of the Isthmian Canal is well under way, and our foreign relations have been so conducted that we are upon terms of cordial friendship with all nations of the earth. Finally, Theodore Roosevelt has been a potent influence for the peace of the world, an inspiration for the uplifting of public and private ideals, a wise and successful leader in wholesome legislation in the interest of the whole people. We approve the administration of his office and tender to him our loyal support during its continuance.
Nebraska.-We especially commend the inspiring character and undaunted leadership of Theodore Roosevelt. It is with exceeding pride that we contemplate the confidence reposed in him by the people of our own country and the admiration he commands from the whole world.
New York.-Assembled as delegates to the Republican State Convention, we gladly record our pride and confidence in President Roosevelt. We indorse what he has done in fulfilling the will of the people in protecting both labor and capital, in preventing unfair discrimination in railway rates, in reforming the abuses of trust corporations, in providing for the speedy construction of the Panama Canal,
