New York, June 17.--Two planks of the Harvard Democratic platform, those on agriculture and the tariff, have been selected for presentation to the committee on platform and resolutions of the Democratic National Convention, and will be formally offered to that body by Mr. Herbert C. Pell '05, of the New York delegation.
Mr. Pell and Commodore Richard P. Hobson, author and lecturer, had high praise for the activities of the Harvard Democratic Club, and have arranged for members of the club who will be in the city during the Convention to have access to many of the activities in connection with it, both political and social.
The tariff plank, as passed at the Harvard Democratic convention, reads as follows:
"The federal government can not rightfully impose tariff duties except for the purpose of securing revenue. The high Republican tariff is an instrument for the arbitrary redistribution of wealth. We pledge ourselves to a tariff for revnue only, arrived at by a gradual period of readjustment, downward revision of all duties beginning immediately.
