Telegram from Frank Harper to Joseph M. Dixon

Description:

Frank Harper sends instructions to Senator Joseph Dixon regarding logistics for Theodore Roosevelt's speeches and transportation during his planned campaign tour. Roosevelt dictated a conversation about the ineffectiveness of the Sherman Anti-Trust Law as enacted by President William Howard Taft's administration. Roosevelt also takes issue with Taft's inaction over the tariff and wants a commission established to revise it so that it benefits farmers and laborers. He believes in the people's right to initiative and referendum, not as a replacement for representative government but as a means of ensuring it. President Taft feels that when the people elected him, "their voice was next to the voice of God," but that in regard to passing judgment on their own laws they are not "entitled to rule."
