Concrete action tending to thwart what
they regard as an effort of the "Cathollo"
faction of the Episcopal Church to encroach
upon the ritual or government of that com
munion at the general convention at St.
Louis next fait Is likely to result from a
meeting of tho dlocctsan branch of tho
Church League held In Holy Trinity Parish
About 300 members of tho clergy and
laity, representing some BO parishes In the
Dlocesa of Pennsylvania, attended tho meet
ing, which was opened by the llev. Dr.
Floyd W. Tomklns, who Introduced tho
iiov. wewciiyn w. caiey, rector of St. Judo
Nativity Church as presiding officer.
Chief among the prospoctlxo actions con
sidered were the alleged pinna for tho re

to be enunciated hero today or tomorrdw,
albeit the enunciation Is likely to bo some

PLAJf ADEQUATE REFUGE.
Still tho platform, as the convention will
assort, will speak- for Itself.
To the end of making It easy for Progres
sives to flnd a sheltering and sheltered re
treat the platform was constructed to meet
aa many of their well-known principles as
possible. Of course, there will not be any
thing In It about the Inltlattvo and refer
endum nor the recall of Judges nor much
about social Justice, but any Pro-mssrve
who has not too much of a grouch on tne
existing order will find ndequato refuge In
the tonenis to be proclaimed, so the Dem
ocrats think, and so the Resolutions Com
urttteo labored last night to make m-re.
CHANKISStS AND CROTCHETS.
There was nmple data on hand when the
committee met to furnish guidance for Its
deliberations. Secretary Newton Baker did
not pack that big suitcase for nothing all
the way from Washington. Furthermore,
tho oomrrtltteq waa submerged with all sorts
of outside suggestions and demands. These
came from all quarters, and embraced
every kind of cranklsms and crotchets, from
the benefit! to be derived by the public at
largo by the exclusive use of brands a
food to a proposed plank declaring It to
be the sense of tha Democratic party that
this country's appropriations and finances
should be conducted on the budget system,
which suggestion, caused John J. Fitzgerald.
New York's member of the committee and
chairman of the Appropriations Committee
of the House of Representatives, to emit
loud Bhrieks of agonized protest.
After the grain had been winnowed out,
what follows waa substantially tho re-
, suit. I malio no attempt to give the exact
words, but In Its Important paragraphs the
r platform,, stands for these things:
It la very strong on our foreign policy;
puts real patriotism as the first requisite
for exalted government and true natlonal-
Ism, and goes specifically after hyphenates
and thelc Insidious antl-Amerlcanlsm. It
denounces any foreltm Power that seeks
to control the policies of the United States
by moans of the machinations of citizens
of that country temporarily sojourning in
the United States
Mexico Is not mentioned specifically, but
the platform demands for small govern
ments the right to conduct 'and regulate
their own internal affairs to suit them
selves, which Is the Administration way
of answering critics of Wilson's American
It asserts that when the present legisla
tive program of the Administration has
been completed by the Congress there will
ba enough remedial laws, and says the
country 'shall be given an opportunity to
rest and recuperate.
A Tariff Committee advocated, and an
anti-dumping clause. The platform de
mands a navy strong enough to prevent ag
gressive attacks by sea, and strong enough
to enforce the Monroe Doctrine, which
means a very strong navy.

PEACE AND PROSPERITY.
An army is advocated that shall be
strong enough victoriously to meet unex
pected assault by any foe, with a reserve
forco sufficiently large to protect the coun
try frpm any aggression whatever, whether
unexpected or expected. Peace and pros
perity are referred to In adequate and ad
miring terms, as the results of the
beneflclent democratic rule.
There is the usual lot of minor matter,
and the Baltimore platform Is Indorsed as
a whole, which relieves the party of any
specific reference to the Panama Canal
tolls plank In that platform or to the
vexatous one-term plank.
Meantime the President's own keynote
speech at Washington was taken as the

Then tho Government stepped In and car

(slipped back Into the old pit of despair and
blackness. His hope was snuffed out as
a candle Is put out by tho wind. Look at
him, Jurors, and note his condition. Who

CURING NOT A CRIME.
"It Is not a crime for a physician to try

If you have red blood In your veins you will

FEW DRY EYES.
There was hardly a dry eye In the court
room when Mr. Scott finished his plea.
Drug victims squirmed uneasily in their
seats. Some of them seemed for the mo

that gripped them. When Mr, Scott asked
the Jurors to send Doctor Holcomb back to
his mother Mrs. Holcomb sobbed as If her
heart would break, and a look of misery
overspread the face of Doctor Holcomb. The
case will go to the Jury this afternoon.
DRUG PURCHASES SHOWN.
.A bench warrant for the apprehension of
J. S. Relce, of 919 Glrard avenue, was Issued
this morning by Judge Thompson because
the latter failed to appear with records
showing the quantity of cocaine purchased
by Doctor Jfoicomo.
Later Charles Lewis, a clerk In. the Relce
drug store, appeared and testified that an
other clerk had told him that Mr. Relce
was spending the day at his country home
In Pleasantvllle, N, J. Lewis had hardly
finished his testimony when a letter from
Relce was handed to the District Attorney.
The letter contained the records desired
by the Government. The records showed
that the following amounts of drugs had
been purchased from the Relce drug store
from January 1 to March 25; Morphine.

Democracy has enacted Into law moro pro

slnco Its birth In former national con
tests In tho Inst two decades our party
came as a prophet. Wo could only point
out wrongs and promise remedies; but to
day wo como with deeds, not words; with
performance, not promise Our deeds In
the nation have been greater than our
words upon the hustings; our performance
as the lawmaker greater than our promise
an the campaigner. In other words, the
Democratic party has kept Its word with the
American people Wo have made good. Wo
have by our conduct of the affairs of this
nation deserved tho renewed confidence of
Its people by proving worthy of the con
fidence once bestowed
The Democratic party rejoices that under
this administration for the first time Hlnco
the Civil War It was enabled to amand
the Constitution of the United States In thn
Interest of good government and tho masses
of the people, We freed the Senate from
the control of the great Interests by making
It elective by the people at the polls. We
wrote Into the Constitution Itself an amend

He drove the lobbyist out; he turned the

Administration we have done more to build
up an army and navy In threo years than
the Republican party did In 40 years of Its
existence. More has been done to give the
American people a navy and army In three
months than Colonel Roosevelt nnd Mr

which have confronted President Wilson

DEFEAT OF SHIPPING BILL.
Tho Republican party defeated by fili
buster tho shipping bill proposed by tho
Democratic party, which, If It had been en
acted, would have made Impossible the
more than 200 miles of railroad sidetracks
crowded by the products of the American
factory and tho American farm by enabling
us to get shipments abroad, and we would
by this tlmo have been enabled to hao a
merchant marine to take tho products of
the field and tho factory and the mines to
tho hungry markets of Europe. They offer
to the United States the often nrooosed and
always defeated subsidy to the ship owners
to bo paid out of the Treasury of the people
of the United States. This time they call
It by tho name of subvention, but It means,
of course, tho taking of the people's money
to enrich a few men.
The Republican party, seeking some Issue,
just any Issue upon which to hang the
slightest hope of returning to power. Is
driven to the necessity of denouncing in Its
own platform, adopted at Chicago, the vote
of a majority of its own members In the
House and Senate upon virtually nil of the
reform measures thaf have been written
Into law by tho Democrntlo party. They
declare we "favor an effective system of
rural credits as opposed to the Ineffective
law proposed by the present Democratic
Administration," By this declaration thev
charge virtually every Republican In the
Senate and almost every Republican In the
House with having voted for an Ineffective
rurnl credit law.
With critics all about him, with patience
and strength and great foresight, Woodrow
Wilson has kept a nation at peace with
honor. He has driven from the control of
the finances of the people of this nation an
oligarchy of wealth and substitute,- in it.

The Administration will straddle tho Issue.
In other words, ex-Governor Glynn's speech,
tho keynote of the convention, flattered the
"peaco 'at any price" advocates. Palmer
today said that the foreign-policy plank In
tho platform, however, would be far from

the entire cotintry Is "becoming Quaker."
"I'vo heard the same kind of speeches

"The neonle want that, thnmrh. Th

"Did Governor Glynn's speech Indicate
how the platform would deal with pacifi

"It did not. Governor Glynn may havo
gone too far toward pleasing the pacifists,
but the platform will not. You will not
find any 'peace at any price' In the platform."
