it happened that Delegate Timothy J.

shade by tho storm that met his (Irst
mention of the president's name, and at
Ills declaration that New York pledged
him her electoral vote tho hall was in an
i uproar, delegates yelling themselves
hoarse. There appeared to be no end to
tho enthusiasm, the bauds all playing
and everyone standing on his chair.
"1 greet you, my countrymen, with
i fraternal regard. In your presence I bow
i to tho majesty of the people. Tho sight

You, as the representatives of tho people,
aro to choose a magistrate with power
mightier than a monarch, yet checked
and controlled by tho supreme law of tho
written Constitution. Thus Impressed, I
ascend the rostrum to name the
next president of the United States.
New York presents him to the conven
tion, nnd pledges her electoral vote.
Delegations from thirty-eight states aud
all tlio territories aro horo assembled,
without cauous or consultation, ready,
simultaneously, to take up tho cry and
make tho vote unanimous. We are here,
indeed, not to choose a candidate only
to name tho one tho people havo alroady

Inspires faith 111 the future Ho Is not a
hope: he Is a realization, scorn
ing siibterruge, disdaining re-election by
I'omvalliig convict Ions, mindful of his
oath of office to defend the Constitution,
ho courageously declare!! to congress,
dropping minor matters, that tho su
preme Issue Is reform, revision, reduction
of national taxation; that tho treasury
of the United States, glutted with un
needed gold, oppresses industry, embar
rasses business, endangers financial tran
quillity and breeds extravagauco,contrnl
izutlon aud corruption; that high taxa
tion, vital for tho expenditures of unpar
alleled war, Is robbery In yeara of pros
porons peace: that tho millions that pour
into tho treasury como from tho
hard-earned savings of tho American
people, that In violation of equality of

privileged class, who, shaping legislation
for personal gain, levy by law contribu

Is not free trade. It Is to ro
duco the unjust prollts of monopolists
and boss manufacturers and allow con
sumers to retain the rest. The mnn who
asserts that to lower tho tariff means
free trade, lnsultslntelllgence. Wo brand
him as a falslllor. Ills farthest from the
thought to Imperil capital or disturb
enterprises, Tho aim Is to uphold wages
and protect tl rights of all. This ad
ministration has rescued tho public do
main from would-bo barons and corpora
tions, faithless to obligations, and re
served It for frco homes for this and coin
ing generations. Thoro Is no pilfering;
there aro no lobs under this administra
tion. 'Public olllco Is a public trust.'
Integtlty stands guard nt every post of
i our vast empire. While tho president
had been the medium through which lins
(lowed tho undying gratitude of tho re
public for her soldiers, ho has not hesl-
tated to withhold approval from special
legislation, if the strictest Inquiry re
veals a want of truth and Justice. Alwve
all, sectional strife Is at an end, aud sixty
millions of freemen, In the ties of broth

aro the achievements of this administra
tion. Under tho samo Illustrious leader
wo aro ready to meet our political op
ponent in high and honorable debate, and
stake our triumph on tho intelligence,
