I rational association manufacturers makes a declaration. 1 new Orleans april 16.�?the delegates to the National convention manufacturers devoted Allaf both sessions yesterday to the labor question. There was much difference opinion As to the nature the attitude which the organization should take towards Trade organizations and the debates were at times heated but when the declaration principles was made the Resolution embodying it was accepted by a unanimous vote. An Effort was made led by ii. A. Tompkins North Carolina and mayor Jones Toledo to bold this Resolution for further consideration but delegates demanded mediate action and the protest was overruled. The resolutions which a resident Parry characterized As a a the platform the association a Are As follows declaring against Boycotts and lockouts recognizing the right labor to organize but a without interference with the Liberty employers employee denying the right unions to fix wages and pledging the association to oppose All legislation not in Accord with the foregoing principles. Numerous other resolutions were adopted among them being one condemning the convict another commending the organization non Union men. The democratic situation. Som inside facts regarding probably t be by a leading member the party. Oils under the protective system and assumed that the people the United states wanted Prosperity to continue. The question whether under another Tariff Law than that which is in Force Tolj country might not have prospered the question whether in the future the country might not Prosper under another law7, is not one that presses for consideration. The fact to be considered is that at its very inception any step toward revision the Tariff would bring doubt and dread to every citizen having material interests at stake. Through groping after vague possibilities improvement the Good that we have would be jeopardized. Moreover if the Tariff were revised would not be uniformly satisfactory. No Tariff Law Ever can be thar. The interests the different sections this country Are too various. A the question said the speaker whether there Are really existing evils to be cured As great As the evils to be endured from the Long and difficult process whenever it May appear clearly that changes in the Tariff Are advisable then changes will be made but at the proper time and in the proper manner. Revision if undertaken at All should be undertaken Only when the Congress is free from the influence a political Campaign and the task should be entrusted Only to the friends Protection. essential principle May not be disturbed. In conclusion . Root said a if the american people Are ready to abandon the principle Protection and face the crash and downfall our present Prosperity which would immediately result then they should hand the revision Over to the democratic party and that is the meaning the men who Are crying a revise the Tariff in order to destroy the what they really mean is.

Senator Teller has been interviewed in new York the political situation and he tells some new things which May May not be Welcome to his democratic friends. Parker he says is stronger in the West than he is in his own state in the East in general. Cleveland he declares is an impossibility which will be bad news for the clique which is trying to Start a Boom for him. Bryan so Teller says is not an aspirant for a renomination but a the will continue As a National democratic Leader and will be a big Factor in the this is something which will not please the Section the democracy to which he imparted this inform Tion says the St. Louis Globe demo crat. Perhaps the senator is out touch with politics. This will possibly be the explanation which the Cleveland ites will give to his poor opinion the sex president a chances. There is no doubt at All however that he is right in saying that Bryan will be a big Factor in the convention 1904. Whether he goes there As a Delegate not his influence will be potent in that gathering. The Man who a rolled up 1,000,000 More votes than did his immediate predecessor the ticket and that predecessor Cleveland is too great a figure to be cast aside because he was beaten twice in succession in his canvass for president. Any other Man whom the democrats would have nominated would have been beaten in those years. Bryan got More votes in 1896 and 1900 than could have been obtained by any other Democrat sin the country. Bryan will be the ghost at every feast the democratic reorganizes Between now and the Day the election in 1904. The Cleveland Hill. Go Man Parker and Olney factions the democracy know that Bryan is against All them. They Are aware that he would rather see Roosevelt Orang other Republican elected than see the aspirant any one those factions win Bryan himself makes this pretty Plain in All his interviews and in All his Lead ers in the commoner. The democracy for which he stands is entirely different from that represented by any those elements. Senator Teller knows this and so does every other sensible Democrat in the country.
