Transcript Territories We favor granting to the people of Alaska, Hawaii and Porto Rico the traditional territorial government accorded to all territories of the United States since the beginning of our government, and we believe the officials appointed to administer the government of those several territories should be qualified by previous bona fide residence. Candidates We unreservedly indorse our President and Vice President, Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey, and Thomas Riley Marshall of Indiana, who have performed the functions of their great offices faithfully and impartially and with distinguished ability. In particular we commend to the American people the splendid diplomatic victories of our great President, who has preserved the vital interests of our government and its citizens and kept us out of war. Woodrow Wilson stands today the greatest American of his generation. Conclusion This is a critical hour in the history of America, a critical hour in the history of the world. Upon the record above set forth, which shows great constructive achievement in following out a consistent policy for our domestic and internal development; upon the record of the Democratic administration, which has maintained the honor, the dignity and the interests of the United States, and at the same time retained the respect and friendship of all the nations of the world, and upon the great policies for the future strengthening of the life of our country, the enlargement of our national vision and the ennobling of our international relations, as set forth above, we appeal with confidence to the voters of the country. CAPITALISM DESTROYS THE HOME "According to the census figures of 1910 the total male population of the country, twenty years old and over, was about 28,000,000. Out of these 8,102,062 were single, 1,470,280 widowed, and 155,815 divorced. Out of the 25,500,000 women over twenty years old, 4,947,406 were single, 3,165,967 were widowed, and 181,418 divorced. "Thus, out of a total of 53,500,000 adult Americans 18,000,000 or more than a third, were unmated. 'This,' observes Commissioner Rittenhouse, who was charged with investigating the alarming facts, 'is an unfortunate and startling state of affairs. Moreover, from the ranks of the unmarried comes humanity's heaviest contribution to immorality and crime.' Yes, especially when aided by the economic misery of millions of women."—Morris Hillquist in Debate with Ryan—"Socialism: Promise or Menace." 29
