THE PRESIDENT'S LETTER

Washington Sept. 9. The folloing
is the gist of the president's letter of
Washington Sept. 8. Hon. Pat-
rick A.-Collins and others committee
etc.: Gentleman In addressing to
you my formal acceptance of the nom-
ination to the presidency of the United
States my thoughts persistently dwell
upon the impressive relations of such
action to the American people whose
confidence is thus invited and to the
political' party to which I belong just
entering upon a contest for continued
supremacy. The world does not af-
ford a spectacle more sublime than is
lurnished when millions of free and
intelligent American citizens select
their chief magistrate and bid one of
their number to lillthe highest earthly
honor and the full measure of public
dutv in a ready submission to their
ENDORSES THE PI.TFORM.
The pledges contained in the plat-
form adopted by the late convention
ot the national democracy lead to the
advancement of these objects and in
sure cood government. This is the
aspiration ot every true American cit
ien and the motive for every patriotic
action and effort. In the concious-
ness that much has been done in the
direction of good government by the
present administration and submit-
ting its record to a fair inspection of
my countrymen. I indorse the plat-
form thus presented with a determi-
nation that if I am again called to the
chief magistracy theie shall be a con-
tinuance of devoted endeavor to ad-
vance the interests of the entire coun-
try. EXCESSIVE TAXATION.
The cost of the government must
continue to be met by tariff duties
collected at our custom-houses upon
imported goods and internal revenue
taxes assessed upon spirituous and
malt liquors tobacco and oleomar
garine. I suoDose it is needless to
explain that all these duties and as
sessments are added to the prices of

and in view of this necessary effort of
the opperation of our plan lor raising
revenue the absolute duty of limiting
the rate of tana changes to the neces-
sities of frugal and economical admin-
istration of the government seems to
be perfectly plain. The constinuance
upon the pretext of meeting public
expenditures of such a scale of tariff
taxation as diaws trom the substance
of the people a sum very largely In
excess of public needs is surely some-
thing which under a government
bassed upon justice and which finds
its strength and usefulness in the faith
and trust of the people ought not to
be tolerated. While the heaviest bur
dens incident to the necessities of the
government are uncomplainingly
borne the light burdens become griev
ous and intolerable when not justified
by such necessities.
Unnecessary taxation is unjust tax
ation. And yet this is our condition
We are annually collecting at our cus
torn-house and by means of our enter
nal revenue taxation manv millions in
excess of all legitimate public needs.
As a consequence there are now re
mains in the national treasury a sur
dIus of more than $130000000. No
Detter evidence could be furnished
that the people are exorbitantly taxed.
The extent of the superlluous burden
indicated by this surplus will be better
appreciated when it is suggested that
such surplus alone represent taxation
aggregating more than $108000 in-
habitance. REDUCTION OF THE TARIFF.
We do propose to deal with those
conditions by merely attempting to
satisfy the people of the truth of ab-
stract theories nor by alone urging
their assent to political doctrine. We
present to them the proposition that
they are unjustly treated in the ex-
tent of present federal taxation that
as a result a condition of extreme
danger exists and that is for
them to demand the remedy and de-
fense and safety promised in the guar-
antees of their free government. We

believe that the same means which
are adopted to relieve the treasury of
its present surplus and prevent its re-
currence should cheapen to our peo-
ple the cost of supplying their daily
wants. Both of these objects we
seek in part to gain by reducing the
piesent tariff rates upon the neces--saries
AVo truly approciato tho importance
to the country of our domestic indus-
trial enterprise. In rectification of
oxisting wrongs their luaintonnnco
and prosperity should bo carefully
and in a friondly spirit considered.
Even such relitiuco upon the presont
revenue arrangements as navo noon
invited or oncouragod should bo fair-
ly nnd justly regarded abrupt and
radical changes which might endan-
ger such enterprises and injuriously
allect tho interests of labor dopoudont
upon their success ami contlnuanco
tiro not contomplutcdor intomlod but
we know tho cost of our domestic
manufactured products is increased
und their prico to the con-
sumer enhanced by tho duty
imposed upon raw material used
in their manufacture. Wo know that
this increased cost prevents tho sulu
of our productions at forolgn markets
in competition with thoso couutrlos
which nave tho advantago of free raw
material. "We know that confined to
home market our manufacturing ope-
rations are curtailed their demand
for labor irregular and tho rate of
wages paid uncertain. Wo proposo
therefore to stimulato our domestic

Truo to tho undoviating course of
the democratic party we will not ne-
glect tho interest of labor ami our
workingmen. In all efforts to romc-
dy existing ovlls wo will furnish no
oxcubo for loss of employment or re-
duction of wago of nonost toll. On
tho contrary wo proposo in any ad-
justment of our rovonuo laws to con-

by extending tho markets for our
