Can This Republic be Perpetuated.
Continued from 5th page
It in unnecessary for me to present the
Tacts which hive go often, been presented
and discussed by tuis club respecting the
grasp inn corporation, trusts, syndi
cates, etc., which has, as it were, taken
possession of this country during the
ehort period covered by this paper. You
have knowledge of the power of each act
ing separately in its own line. You hart
had demonstrated the multiplied power
of them acting together; whether the
combination be made for legislative pur
poses or for election purposes.
Having thus breifly presented but two
counts in my indictment against the
governing power of this country mind
I do not say the people; for the third
and last charge which I am about to
make is that the tights ot the people
have been for the time being usurped,
tripped from them by fraud, deception
and intimidation. Thus placing for the
second time in the presidential chair a
man, and currying with him a party into
power which has no constitutional right
there. I imagine I hear some doubting
goldbug call for the proof. The proof,
though circumstantial, is strong enough
to make a case and win a verdict of
guilty. .-
I do not propose to tire you with a
long column of figures in proof of. the
smooth methods by which voters were
imported from states where they could
be safely spared and colonized for voting
purposes in doubtful states. It is known
for a positive fact that hundreds of car
loads of idle men were given a free ride
from Pennsylvania Into the state of
Ohio, Indiana and Illinois dumped into
the larger cities, fed and lodged until
election day, and promised permanent
employment in ease McKinley was
elected; poor dopes it is hard to say
they deserve their disappointment. But
let me prove my charge.
In the United States census returns
you will find one column givingtbe num
ber of males of voting age in each state.
These 1gures,ofcourse,include many who
are not voters such as unnaturalized for
reiguers, prisoners and insane, First I
will read to you briefly from an article
by Walter Wellman, a reliable statisti
cian and a newspaper correspondent of
a gold bug paper. Speakingot the largely
increased vote returned from certain
states, he says:
"It is a remarkable fact that in some
of the states named in the foregoing the
number of veters in 1896 exceeded the
total number of males of voting age re
turned by the census of 1890, ,
"These are amazing figures. A vote of
such magnitute in ratio to males of
voting age was never before seen in this
country. There is a suspicion that in
eome precincts boys of from 18 years up
were permitted to vote. Increase in pop
ulation since 1890 is not sufficient to ac
count for the increased vote."
First let us examine the vote of two
states whose political and geographical
status was such as to rendercolonization
Unnecessary and impractical, mat we
nay get at a fair or normal ratio w here
no importation of voters was attemptea.
We will take Missouri's and Minnesota's
vote. Missouri's vote for instance lack
ed 81.992 of the number of males of
voting age according to the census of
1890, in other words, was short about
5 per cent. Minnesota's vote was short
-39,556, just about 11 percent. But
these states being of the more western
and nnscttled, into wh'ch a constant tide
of immigration has drifted since 1890,
would come much nearer casting the
number of votes indicated by the census
than those which I am about to name.
(Votes cast heretofore have never
reached" nearer than 12 percent less than
the number placed in that column of the
census.) But we will give the defendant
the benefit of the doubt, and for con
venience assume that 10 per cent less
than the figures given in that column of
the census report as the fair thing. Then
we have in the five states whose votes
exceeded the figures in that column.

Let us for a moment glance at Ohio
from another standpoint. It is a well
established rule of computation that
of the population one in Ave are voters.
Ohio in the late presidential election
counted up one vote for every three and
a fractiou of her population. Can you
see any Ethiopian in the Ohio wood-pile?
Oh, yes you can smell him clear out here
iu Nebraska! Too many of those free
riding excursionists to Canton forgot to
go home to their own state till after
The reduction in the vote of the large
towns and cities of this state at their
late municipal elections more than equals
MeKinley's plurality of last November.
j tie botley contested election for
mayor in Chicago a week or two sirce,
shows a decrease in the ballots et in
that city aloue nearly equal to the re
publican plurality of theentire'state of
last November. What better proof do
you want of a presidential election being
carried bv stuffing, repeating, boodle
and fraud? "Purity of the ballot box"
where art thou?
Had I the time, I could give many ol
the methods by which this smooth work
was accomplished. I will briefly show
you on of the methods of relating as
was carried out under the management
of Marku AureHus llanua.

Having given two thirds of my time
to the dark side of the picture let us see
if we can find a brighter side. But be
fore passing to the other side, I would
say that this same question of the
unions perpetuity arose in the minds of
f ha fnnnitnra nf thm cnvernmeiit. Wash

P. Chase a short time before his death
Ai-nrAHDed fears of creak damrer to the
country through the national banking
system which is still npheld by the gov
ernment. Mr. Chase's fears are today
being as you may say almost realized.
Judge Mason whom many of you re
member and knew to be nlain spoken
and sometimes a little profane, was
asked a short time before his death (I
think nn occasion of Graver Cleve
land's second election) "what can be
done, was asked to save Ibe country?"
replied 'tne oia nunc is getting so
Hnmnnit rotten it's hnrdlv worth saving."
This, howfcver, was an answer given
under the impulse of the occasion. I.
think he had a better one in reserve.
I once asked John IS. finch tbe great
tomnornncH leader, a man nossessed of
n more than ordinary logical mind
"a: hot. nrna hi nnlnion Ol the stabilitV

in any sense remain stable, it must pro

In these last words my hope yea my
faith is expressed! I cannot believe that
this, tbe greatest nation, leading all
others in her schools, professions, me
chanics and arts can go back to a die
solution and complete overthrow a

Agitation and discussion in clubs like
this, and similar ones where the ques
tions of the hour are freely discussed, I
believe, will yet bring this republic by
evolution to a higher plane of thinking,
acting and governing.
I cannot think that Byron's gloomy
picture of the rise and fall of nations,
referred to by your president at your
last meeting are applicable to this re
publicThese are Byron's words:
"Here is the moral ot all human tales
'Tie but the same rehearsal of the past,
First freedom and then glory when
that fails,
Wealth, vice, corruption, barbarism at
And history with all her volume vast
Hath but oue page."
No! this cannot be the fate, I trust of
a people ''whose public free school is the
fountain whose streams shah make glad
all the lauds of liberty."
But tbe forum where free discussion
lightens up thegloom ot despairing hope
and gives fresh courage to sinking
hearts must be maintained. "We must
educate or perish.

And, quoting from the fifth volume of
the works of.Mr. Clay, it says:
Mr. Webeter said that he did not wish
to commit the house of representatives
in tbe political contests of-Europe, but
the president of the United States, in bis
message to congress, not only expressed
tbe belief that the Greek nation in its
struggle with this barbarous nation bad
the good wishes of the whole civilized
world, and also advanced the opinion
that the Turkish domain over the coun
try was forever lost. He thought that if
such were the tact, it was important for
congress to act on the subject. His main
object was to obtain from the house an
expression of sympathy for the sacrifices
and sufferings of that heroic people. He
hoped that they would show to tne
world that there was at least one gov
ernment which lUelf entertained a prop
er view of that barbarous despotism
which under tbe eyes of Lurope bad been
permitted by a system of foul atrocities
to attempt to crush an interesting na
Mr. Webster's resolution, at his re
quest, was laid on the table for further
In sneaking in the senate on the same
resolution later, Mr. Clay of Keutucky,
"Are we so bumble, so low, so debased,
that we dare not express our sympathy
for suffering Greece: that we dare not ar
ticulate our detestation of the brutal
excesses of which she has been the bleed
ing victim, lest we might offend some one
or more of their imperial and royal
It will not be considered improper for
me to incorporate in my remarks a few
salient historical facts respecting tbe
various wars between tireeceand turkey,
and at the expense of detaining tbe sen
ate for a moment I will do so.
Crete is one of the largest islands in
the Mediterranean. It is the most south
erly portion of Europe. It forms the
natural limit between the archipelago
and tbe mediterranean as well as one of
the chief lines of natural connection be
tween the southern shores of Europe and
Asia. Tbe island is of a very elongated
form, being not less than 160 miles in
length, while its breadth does not at any
where exceed 35 miles. A large part of
tbe island is mountainous, but the rest
is of great fertility", and there is no doubt
that under a better system ol govern
ment it would become one of the richest
and most productive islands of the Med
iterranean. It seems that Crete was originally In
habited by te Dorians, although settle
ments ere later made by the Phoeni
cians, and a large portion of the island
was subject to them, uowever, in tne
historical period they are not found
there. The Cretans were always engaged
in war with one another, and the history
of the inland was one continued series of
civil wars. The Cretans, degenerate and
half piratical themselves, had formed nn
alliance with the proffesional buccaneers,
and defeated, off Cydonia, a Roman fleet
that bad been sent against the latter in
the year B. C. 71. They soon repented
of the provocation they had offered and
sent envoys to Rome to buy peace by
beuvy bribes; but neither the penitence
nor the bribes prevailed. Three years
later, (B. C. 68) (juintus JMetellus ap
peared in Crete with bis Roman troops
to exact satisfaction, and two years
were spent in overcoming the stubborn
resistance of the islanders. In the end
Crete was added to the conquered domin
ions of Rome.
The island was now reduced to a
Roman province, and remained so until
tbe ninth century, when it fell into the
hands of the Saracens (823). It then
became a formidable nest of pirates, but
defied all tbe efforts of the Byzantine
sovereigns to recover it until the year
960, when it was reconquered by the
Byzantine Emperor- In the partition of
the Greek Empire after tbe capture ol
Constantinople by the Latins in 1204,
Crete fell to the lot of Boniface, Marquis
of Monuferret, but was sold by him to
the Venetians, and thus passed under
dominion of that great republic to
which it continued eubiect for more
that four centuries.
Under the Venetian government, Can
dia, a fortress originally built by the
Saracens, became the seat of govern
ment, and not only rose to be. the capi
tal and chief city of the island, but actu
ally gave name to it, so that it was call
ed in the official language of Venice;
the "Island of Candia."
The Venetian masters secured to the
islanders, external tranquility, and it is
singular that the Turks were contented
to leave them in undisturbed possession
of the opulent and important island for
nearly two centuries after the fall ol
Constantinople. It was not until 1645
that the Turks made any serious at
tempt to effect its conquest; but in that
year they landed with 50,000 men, and
speedily reduced the important city of
Canea. Retimo fell, the lollowing year
and in 1648 they laid seige to tbe cap;
tal city of Candia. This was the longest
siege on record, having been protracted
for more thau tweuty years, but in 1667
it was pressed with renewed vigor by
the Turks, aud the city was at last com-
felled to surrender nSeptenib.-r, 1669 )
ts fall was followed by the submission
of the whole island.
From this time the island continued
subj-ct to Ottoman rule without inter
ruption till the outbreak ot the Urvek
revolution. Alter the couquest alargs
part of the Inhabitants embraced Mo
hammedanism, and thus secured to
themselves the chief sham In the admin
titration ot the island. But far from
this having a favorable effect upon the
condition d th population, the result

In 1840 Crete was again taken from
Mehemet Ali and replaced under the
dominion of tbe lurks, as it has contin
ued ever since. The strong desire of the
Cretans for freedom and uaion with the
Greek monarchy, has given rise to two
successive revolts, the first of which in
1849, was speedily repressed, but the
second iu 1866, lasted for a considera
ble period and required great exertions
on the part of the Forte to put it down.
It was followed by concessions of addi
tional privileges to tbe christian inhabi
tants and a kind of constitutional gov
ernment which has placed the island in
quite hq exceptional position among
lurkish provinces.
The inhabitants of Crete under the Ve
netians were estimated at about 250,000.
After the Turkish conquest the popula
tion was for a time greatly reduced, but
afterwards gradually rose again until it
was supposed to have attained 2b0,000
at the time the Greek outbreak in 1821,
of whom aboat one half were Moham
medans. Tbe ravages of the war from
1821 to 1830, and tbeimmigration that
followed, produced a great diminution,
and tbe "population of the island wa es
timated in 1836 at about 130,000. The
islaud, It is estimated, now contains
about 200,000 inhabitants in all, of
whom less than 40,000 are Mohammed
ans. It must be observed that very few
of these are Turks, the Mussulman pop
ulation being almost entirely of uative
Cretan origin.
Mr. President, 1 refer to the relations
between Greece and Turkey somewhat at
length, more especially fori the purpose
of calling attention sharply to the fact
that the present war between those na
tions raises the old question of whether
Christianity or paganism or infidelity
shall survive, It is a question that has
been considered by these nations
throughout the ages, or for at lenst
the last six centuries, and in every great
war that has arisen between them dur
ing the existence of our government we
have .expressed in oue form or another
our sympathy with the Grecian people.
Weexpressed that sympathy in J.S24 by
the adoption of the resolution to which
I have referred and which I have read.
I believe it is time the American people
should express their sympathy with tbe
Greeks in the struggle now being waged
against the invasion of Turkey. A great
and powerful nation like the United
States should not hesitate under circum
stances such as these to voice their sen
timents so loudly and so unequivocally
that they will be board over the entire
civilized world.
Sir, I do not desire to detain the sen
ate from the transactions of its regular
business, but I cannot refrain from di
recting attention to the (act that the
so-called greiit powers, as they are
pleased to call themselves, and speaking
in a parenthetical way, j understand
that recently they have reached out in a
tangible form in this country, have
formed an ulliance, not for tbe purpose
of repressing Greek atrocities, for none
have been committed, not for the pur
pose of staying tbe march of Greek in
vaders, but for the purpose of repressing
Greece foe making a resistance for her
territory, for ber homes and for her re
ligion. Mr. President, 1 have spoken bitter
things against the Ottoman Empire and
against the Spanish monarchy in this
chamber, and if 1 live I shall speak still
more bitter things about tbem unless
they cease their atrocities; not because
I have hatred or dislike for any human
being who walks upon tbe face of the
earth, but because I have an utter con
tempt for a government that represses
the niovment of christian privileges
and is a deadweight in the march of tbe
civilization and progress.
. In this instance we have on one nana
the Turks cutting the throats of the
Grecians, and Greece held in restraint by
tbe so-called powers, not because they
sympathize with Turkey, but because
they desire to maintain what tney are
pleased to call the balance of power.
To the south of us, within a hundred
miles of our shores, murder, assassina
tion, devastation by the torch and by
the ax are going on without restraint,
and we are absolutely quiescent and
silent. I believe the time has come
wheu all tbe forces of this mighty coun
trv should be mustered to protect the
christians fu Greece aud to maintain the
libertv of the Cubans.
Mr. President. I have been chargpd
with being radical in my views of public
questions, and tbe charge is to a certain
extent correct; nut i preier to dd raoi
cally right on great questions than rad
icallv wrong.
If I frequently err, as I doubtless do, I
prefer to err on the side of the weak and
defenseless of the human race and in
favor of civi'ization and christiauity

Interevting- Experience of an Indiana-
poll Gentleman.
No trouble is more common or more
misunderstood than nervous dyspepsia.
People having it think that their nerves
are to blame and are surprised that they
are not cured by nerve medicine and
spring remedies; the real seat ot the
mischief is lost sight of, the stomach is
tbe organ to be looked after.
Nervous dyspeptics often do not have
any pain whatever in the stomach, nor
perhaps any of the usual symptoms of
stomach weakness. Nervous dyspepsia
shows itself, not in the stomach so' much
as in nearly every other organ: in some
cases the heart palpitates and is irregu
lar; iu otner tne kidneys are affected; In
others the bowels are constipated, with
headaches; still others are troubled with
loss of flesh aud appetite, with accumu
lation of gas, sour rising and heartburn.
Mr. A. w. sharper ot No. 01 Prospect
St. Indianapolis, Ind., writes me as fol
lows: "A motive of pure gratitude
prompts me to write these few lines re
garding the new and valuable medicine,
Stuart's Dyspepsia tablets. I have been
a sufferer from nervous dyspepsia for
the last four years; have used various
patent medicines and other remedies
without any favorable result. Tliev
sometimes gave temporary relief until
the effects of tbe medicine wore off, I
attributed this to my sedentary habits
being a bookkeeper with little physical
exercise, but 1 am glad to say that the
tablets have overcome all these obsta
cles, for I have gained in flesh, sleep bet
ter, and am better In every way. The
above is written, not for notoriety, but
is based on actual fact."
Respectfully Vours,
A. W. Sharper,
61 Prospect street, Indianapolis, Ind.
It Is safe to say that Stuart'a Dyspep
sia Tablets will care any stomach weak
ness or disease except cancer of the
stomach. They cure sour stomach, gas,
