The opening speech of Mr. Hainer

Columbus day. An Knirlis htnan
named Williams, who has lived here
fifteen years, but has never been
naturalized, ran up the.llritish llag.
His neighbor objected to his (lis
playing the union jack alone, and
asked him to put up an American
flag with it. Williams said the
British llag was going to stay
right where it was and alone; he
would not put out the llag of any
country whose people were in the
habit of making fun of Kngland
hnglisli institutions and (Jueen
Victoria, as Americans were. The
neighbors then got a lot of Roman
candles and began to bombard the

NuV YORK. Oct. Is- Following is
the letter of ucvpianee of While-
law Keid, republican candid. ite for
vice president :
Hon. W. T. Diirbin, Anderson,
lud., Dear Sir -When the nomina
tion with which the national conven
tion had honored me was formally
announced by your committee, I
accepted it at once. In doing so, 1
accepted also the principles set
forth in the resolutions adopted by
the convention as to ba-is ol the
appeal to the popular suffrage.
" To do other or less than U is is,
to any honorable man, an impossi
bility A political ' parly is an
association of citizens, seeking to
have the government conduct all in
accordance with in views and
presenting candidates whom it
strives to elect for that purpose.
To accept its nomination without
intending to carry out its principles,
would be as dishonorable and as
criminal as to procure goods uuder
"There will be no misunderstand
ing as to the purposes of the re
publican party in this contest, and
no doubt as to the attitude of its
candidates. What it intends it has
set forth in language that cannot
be mistaken, and they will strive by
all the lawful means in their power
to enforce its plainly expressed
will. Since my interview with your
committee further rellects and care
ful attention to the arguments on.
both sides in the current public
discussion' have conliru.ed my be
lief in the wisdom of the republican
declarations, as well as in the lucid
candor with winch they have been
The party platforms so called -
are more important this year than
usual. Doth the leading candidates
haveonct commanded the approval
of the American geople in its high
est form of expression. Attention
therefore is concentrated lews on
the men themselves and more on
the, principles each is put lorward
to represent and which, in case of
election they will be required to
carry out. i
The declarations of our oppon
ents demand a still closer scrutiny,
since their victory now would give
them the first opportunity they
have had since 18a9 to put in prac
tice their policy. Never aince that
date have they had control at once
both in legislative and executive
departments of the government,
This year tfce election of a presl
dent cleat ly carries with it a major
ity in both houses of congress.
"It is obvious that in the coming
judgment of the people in all parts
of the country, the really vital is
sues which will this year divide
parties and demand popular dc
cision, are those relating to the tar
iff and the currency. Fortunately
both sides have stated their posi
tions on these subjects with direct
ness, simplicity and frankness.
The issues thus made between
the rival candidates lor the people s
suffrage are specially sharp this
"We favor a protective tariff and
when in full power made the pres
ent one. Our opponents favor a
tariff for revenue only, and promise
the repeal of the present one.
"We maintain that tariff should
cover the differences in the cost of
home and foreign product caused
by the difference in the home and
foreign wages for the labor em
ployed upon it. Our opponent dis
tinctly repudiated the proposition
that American wages should be
considered in the matter and de
clared instead that a tariff levied for
anything but revenue only was un
constitutional. So the IajikIou
Times, on September very
naturally remaked: "This policy
if fairly and logically carried out,
is not to be distinguished from
free trade in the political form in
which we are familiar with it."
"If protective duties are unconsti
tutional, as was asserted at Chi
tnigo, no financial legerdemain can
produce any other readjustment'
than that which would naturally
follow the remedial of all imports
tending to holster u; particular
branches of industry and com
merce. "Should the American people now
choose the republican candidate!
the present tariff would tand,'or
when amended would be' so ar
ranged us to insure a closer con
formity in practice- to the principle
on which it was made. If our op
poncnH should be chosen, their
congress is pledged to the repeal '
of the present tariff, and to the
adoption of one arranged for reve
nue only, and their executive is
pledge to the doctrine that a tariff
having n-gard also f,r American
;es is unconstitutional, sn that
only one that count escape the
presidential veto must be of the
kind which the London Times con
siders equivalent to free trade.
We mi .i i ii ta i ii that the present
tariff has worked well; that it has
developed American maniifnct
iii et s, and promoted the general
prosperity. Our opponents deny
that there has been any increase of
prosperity under t he present tariff,
declare that wiges have Uvn re
duced and denounce the republican
policy, which, as they say , fosters
no other industry so much as that
ol the sheriff.
" The sharp issues thus presented
for the decision of the American
people cover more comprehensively
ind more Hpecilially than ever be
fore the whole range of considera
tions relating to the prospective
tariff, its consitutiouality, its ex
pediency, its relation to wages, its
practical workings and the qties-
Utfa whether, si it is from tune to
time reduced, we should throw ull
advantages thus extended to for- ,
eigu nations, or get something in
return for them.
"The constitutionality of n pro
tective tariff has heretofore been
thoroughly established. A tariff
bill, avowedly for the encourage
ment and protection of manufact
urers, was carried throne!) the
First congress by James Madison
and was signed by George Wash
ingtoii. A third ot a century later
Andrew Jackson in a message to
congress (December 7, KtO) main
taining the constitutionality of tiK.
prospective sy stem said: "In this
conclusion lam confirmed as well
by the opinions of Presidents Wash
ington, Jefferson, Madison and
Munroe, who have each repeatedly
recoinineiided the exercise of this
right, uuder the constitution, ns by
the uniform practice of congress',
the continued acquiescence of the
states and the great limlei standing
of the people."
I o this tcntiunny from the men
who made the constitution, and
from the father of t lie modern dem
ocratic parly, may lie added that of
the latest high authority -of that
party on constitution, it law, Hon.
George Tickenor 'Curtis, who has
recently said: In ciunmon with
many other democrats I cannot
subscribe to the doctrine that a pro
tective tariff is unconstitutional.
In drafting and voting for this res
olution the members showed either
dense ignorance of American polit
ical nconomy or ninnitested a pur
pose to win votes by deceiving the
voters. I cannot, at the bidding of
these gentlemen, unlearn the les
sons of my whole life. If I cannot
claim to be an authority on such
subjects, I can point out to others
the true sources from which to de
rive interpretations of the constitu- '
tion. They are to be found in the
interpretations given by the first
congress, by Washington's admini
stration, and by the succeeding ad
ministrations of Jefferson, Madison,
John (Juiiicy Adams and Jackson."
