On the 25th day of October, 1893,
; Hon. Thomas B. Reed of Maine ad
: dressed the republican club of Mas
: sachusetts, at a dinner given at
I Music hall at .Boston. The Boston
: Herald of October 26 (the next day)
Rives a report of the speech, to-
sether with the applause which
I greeted the speech. The following
extract from the speech, as reported
: in the Herald, is of interest to the
: "And let me tell you right here
that there is no state so deeply in
'. terested as the state of Massachu-
setts. Applause. It it were not
". for its condition I should say: Let
: these men try it. Let us have a
: lesson of free trade burned into the
: quick, and then let us have peace.
: Applause. But when Massachu
: setts sits around to mourn her des-
troyed factories, her ruined indus-
ties, her ruined machine shops, she
: Bits around to mourn for eternity;
: for if they are once destroyed the
: omnivorous west will do the manu
'. facturing for the country, f Ap
: plause. You have the start; you
: have the power; you have the
prestige. You can keep it. or you
can throw it away, and the only way
' in which you can keep it is by mak-
ing the voice of the majority of your
people to be heard, and to be heard
I across the country." Applause.
In view of the outrageous outcome
of the Prendergast matter at Chicago
it would now be in order to cause the
institution of Insanity proceedings for
the benefit of Murderer Harry Hill.
There isn't the least doubt but what
Hill has been insane for years. Judge
Chapman would prove a stumbling
block, but it would most fitting to call
Judge Scott down from Omaha to sit
at the proceedings. The Douglas
county jurist would be right in line on
: Washington, D. C. March, 27, 1S04.
I After breaking the record for tuild
: ness for nearly four weeks, March has
turned the tables on herself by giving
us three days of freezing weather un
doubtedly doing much damage to vege
tation and fruit. I froze ice nearly an
inch deep Monday night. Teaches,
plums, apricots and like fruit were in
bloom early last week. The blooms
were frozen on the trees.
Scenes at the white house during the
past week have rivaled those of last
spring and early summer, when the
bankers panic was in preparation.
Then the bankers and boards of trade
were swarming about the white house
in droves, and telegrams from every
section and distant bank all under
the domination of Wall street intlu
ences were coming thick as leaves in
Vallambrosia all urging the president
to call congress together to repeal the
Sheiman silver purchase law. By pre
concerted action the New York backs
began pinching tbe country banks, and
advising them to recoup on their cus
totners and the panic came. A few
days ago a committee of the combined
banks on Wall street called on Mr.
Cleveland and urged the veto of the
Bland seigniorage bill. They said the
business of the conntry demanded it
and favored it. "But I have had no
demonstration of that fact," said he
"giveusademonstration." The papers
here say they took the cue, and
straightway telegraph lines were bur
dened with messages to every bank
and board of trade in the west and
south from this committee telling them
to wire the president to "veto the bill,"
and like the puppets in a punch-and-judy
show, these creatures of Wall
street have responded in a perfect
flood of messages just as if it were a
spontaneous outburst of universal
business sentiment. There never was
a more convincing exhibition cf a fact
than this to prove that the money
changers of the country have become
willing tools of the Xew York con
spirators to overthrow popular govern
ment and install in its place the
dictum of a gang not a whit better than
the Shylock of Shakspeare's "Merchant
of Venice," who could gleefully whet
bis knife on bis shoe at the prospect of
cutting the heart's blood out of his
helpless victim. The fact is apparent
to every lover of his country and his
kind that a crisis is rapidly api roach
ing between the men who toil and
sweat for the bread that feeds the
world and keep the wheels of progress
and industry in motion, and those who
eat the bread of idleness and rob and
plunder the poor of their heritage, un
der the plea that "money is entitled to
Its interest," and then proceed to take
far more than it ever earned. May
God keep me from being an alarmist,
arrayiug one class against another, or
saying an unjust thing of any man or
set of men; but I do not believe that
the blood that was shed at Lexiugtor
and Bunker Hill to institute, and that
j which ran in rivulets at ShPeh, at Pea
Ridge and at Gettysburg to preserve
a free and united country, was shed in
vain or was intended to protect
or erect a plutocracy of idle
wealth on one hand and to squalid
proverty and slavery on the other.
Ill gotten wealth of the east may dic
tate to the Ahite houenow,but I have
faith to believe it will not always be so.
Just see how inequality and injustice
has been going on and ripening during
the past ten years. (I quote from Con
gressman Bryan's speech on the income
"The census shows that the popula
tion of Massachusetts increased less
than half a million between 1SS0 and
1800, while the assessed value of her
property increased more than half a
billion during the same period. The
population of New York increased
about 900,000 between 1SS0 and 185)0,
while the assessed value of the property
increased more than $1,100,000 000.
On the other hand, while the popula
lation of Iowa and Kansas co mbined
increased more than 700.000, their as
sessed valuation increased only a lif tie
more than 300,000,000."
And it is within every man's experi
ence that in the west the lot of the poor
has been growing harder, while wealth
and luxury has been growing more dis
tinct. May we not well ask, is not
the laborer worthy cf his hire? Shall
he be robbed continually of his incre
ment, while wealth alone reaps a proGt
from his toil?
But it is not alone in the form of ex
cessive interest that the east hasgrowu
rich at the expense of th west. Tom
Reed, that exemplar of the protective
tariff, made a speech to the republican
club of Boston last October, which was
lauded to the skies by his auditors, in
which he let the protection cat ut of
the bug very completely. It is the
"omnivorous west," and not the foreign
manufacturer, that the protected east
fears. Hear what he said, among other
"And let me tell you light here that
there is no state so deeply interest das
the Mate of Massachusetts. Applause.
If it were not for its condition 1 should
say: 'Let these men try it. Let us
have the lesson of free trade burned
into the quick; and then let us have
peace.' Applause. But when Massa
chusetts sits around to mourn her
destroyed factories, her ruined indus
tries, her ru'ued machine shops, she
sits around to mourn for eternity; for
if they are once destroyed, the cm
nivorous west will do he uianufacti.r
ing for the country Applause. 1 You
have- the start; y ou have the power;
you have the pestige. You can keep
it, or you can throw it away; and the
only way in which you can keep it is
by making the voice of the majority of
vour reople to he heard, and to be
heard across the country." Applause.
There is not a word in that about the
bated foreigner, but the plea is that
because Massachusetts, by means of
unjust and unrighteous tariff laws, has
been able to get "the start, the power
and the prestige," therefore she must
keep it by uniting Against the "om
nivorous west." Wonder if it isn't
time for western republicans to cut
loose from such selfishness? C. W. S.

Kveu without regard to practicability

St. Louis Kejiublic.
Mr. Brvan's joint reso'ution for
chancing the mode of electing United
States senators has the great ti.erit
that it is more likely to be adopted than
a more imperative measure. The con
stitutional amendment which will be
presented to the nation if his resolution
is successful permits each state to
chose whether it will elect senators by
direct vote of the people or by the pres
ent legislative method.
It is doubtful whether the senate
would pass the majority resolution, to
which Mr. Bryan's is an amendment.
That resolution proposes an amend
ment for electing all the Unite d States
senators by direct vote of the people in
the respective states.
Outside of the somewhat better
chance of passing it, the Bryan amend
ment smacks of good democracy. The
state is always the best judge in its own
elections. If the people of a state pre
fer that the present legislative method
remain, nobody else has much cause
to be troubled.
And no friend of the reform can fear
As A sample of the wondrous possi
bilities in Iowa politics we submit the
following letter from a Dubuque rep
resentative, filed in explanation of his
opposition to the tiill to confer limited
suffraee upon women:
'I have always been taught and
scripture says (iod nrst made man and
afterward he took a rib out the man's
side, out of which he made a woman.
Now, it seems to me a disgrace and an
injustice to let that rib control or
dictate to men in any way, shape or
form whatsoever in regard to the law
making power in this state. There

As long as there aie Stillmunkes
upon the face of the earth' women will
not dominate national politics. And
so ong as the Stillmunkes are of this
Iowa sort we may still expect to see
people tried in the churches for heresy,
if not for witchcraft.
