Peek, chairman of the executive committee of twenty-two of the North Central States Agricultural conference tonight described the democratic plank for agricultural relief "a new declaration of independence." Peek had just returned to Chicago from Houston, where he attended the democratic national convention last week. Ho also attended the republican gathering at Kansas City. "In Houston," Peek said, "farmers were given the greatest consideration in every way. Their reception was most cordial, their views on a platform were solicited and a real plank was adopted which is the most favorable for agriculture ever written in the platform of any political party in our history. Asks Democratic Vote "Briefly it recognizes the right of farmers to lead in the adoption of farm policies, points out the needs of agriculture, pledged the party to enact the necessary legislation to give agriculture complete economic equality with industry, assures equality of treatment as to tariff rates between agriculture and industry, and reaffirms its 1924 platform to enact legislation to prevent the price for the surplus determining the prices of the whole crop." Peek plainly was making an appeal for the farmers to vote the democratic ticket in November when he said "regardless of former party affiliations farmers must fight for such a platform if they wish to save their farms and homes. Agriculture has come to a parting of the ways. November will decide whether American farming of the future is to be conducted by farmers or peasants. "Farmers in the grain, livestock and cotton states," Peek added, "will recognize in the democratic plank for agriculture a new declaration of independence." He said the farmers were advised definitely at Kansas City that "the protective system is not intended for them." "The republican party", he said, "was made and supported by the farmers of the mlddlewest �md the party has turned its back upon the farmer.
