Transcript and obtain employment, and that the same assistance and encouragement should be extended by the federal government to systematic vocational training as is now extended to agricultural. We favor a thorough reconsideration of the means and methods by which the federal government handles questions of public health. Labor We declare our faith in the seamen's act, passed by the Democratic Congress, and we promise our earnest continuance of its enforcement; we favor the speedy enactment of an effective federal child labor law, and the regulation of the .shipment of prison-made goods in interstate commerce. We favor the creation of a federal bureau of safety in the Department of Labor to gather facts concerning industrial hazards, and to recommend legislation to prevent the maiming and killing of human beings. We favor the extension of the powers and functions of the federal bureau of mines. We favor the development upon a systematic scale of the means, already begun under the present administration, to assist laborers throughout the nation to seek and obtain employment and the extension by the federal government by the same assistance and encouragement as no v given to agricultural training. We heartily commend our newly established department of labor for its excellent record in settling industrial strikes by personal advice and through conciliating agents. Public Health We favor a thorough reconsideration of the means and methods by which the federal government handles questions of public health to the end that human life may be conserved by the elimination of loathsome diseases, the improvement of sanitation and the diffusion of a knowledge of disease prevention. We favor the establishment by the federal government of tuberculosis sanitariums for needy tubercular patients. Senate Rules We favor such an alteration of rules of procedure of the Senate of the United States as will permit the prompt transaction of the nation's legislative business. Philippine Islands We heartily indorse the provisions of the bill recently passed by the House of Representatives, further promoting self-government in the Philippine Islands as being in fulfillment of the policy declaied by the Democratic party in its last national platform, and we reiterate our indorsement of the purpose of ultimate independence for the Philippine Islands, expressed in the preamble of that measure. 27
