Mr. Allen tuld;
Mr. President: Within a very few
hour the Fifty-fifth congress will be
come a thing of the pant, and my erv
ice here will be at an end. March 4,
1103, without any previous parliament
ary experience, and representing, to a
certain extent, a new, and hitherto un
known, political party, I took my neat
- in litis chamber ae a aenator from He
, braska, I wm at that time, as I have
lnc been, and am now, a populist,
. believing in the doctrine of the party
a promulgated by it national plat
form and giving to it my undivided al
legiance. At tin time, and when I am
oon again to take my appropriate
place among the people of my state
who have honored me beyond my merit
in sending me to the senate a one of
their representative, it i fitting that
I should ay a word.
, To be the pioneer of a new political
party in the United State senate,
which In its Inception incurred the
bitter hostility of the two old partfee,
' wo by no mean an easy or satisfac
tory task. It required some fortitude
and stability, some determination, to
stand by the principles of the organi
sation whatever might betide the indi
vidual. The first years of my life here were
spent In combatting assaults on the
party to which I belong. It was at
that time freely-held by many opposi
tion senator to be the advocate of
nihilism and anarchy, and all that is
bad in politics and in political thought.
But such has been the progress since
then that during the last two years
and a half or more I have heard none
of these epithets used against it.
Mr, President, I shall retire from
the chamber with mingled feelings of
pleasure and regret. I have not, thus
far in my life, sought a seat in this or
in the other branch of congress. My
election came to roe six years ago
without solicitation, and if I should
sgaln at any time be elected it will be
whoa tuy follow elliicusbellrve that I
can represent them to advantage and
without my seeking the office.
I shall retire with the consciousness
of bavlug discharged ray duties a
faithfully and a conscientiously as I
was capable of doing, and feeling that
I have cast no vote and uttered no
word in debate that I would uot again
cast or utter under like olrcuiustancos.
I will go from here with a sense of
freedom from the responsibility of the
great oflice I have held, and will with
pleasure again turn ray face wettward
to dwell among a people with whom I
Live lived for so many years, and who
have so signally honored me and for
whom I have the deepest feeling of

a compliment to the senate, and cer
tainly it is a tribute to the American
people, to say that nny state can fur
nish ninety men posNeHsing all the
knowledge and mental equipment ne
cessary for the transaction of the pub
lic business in this branch of congress.
A sense of relief from the perplexing
duties of ofliclttl life and of Joy in re
turning to thotte I honor and respect,
and with whom I shall spend the re
mainder of my days, will greatly com
pensate for the sevrauoe of the pleas
tint association with senators which I
would enjoy if I remained in the cham
ber, Mr. President, during my stay here
political events have been rapid, radi
cal and important. Mistake have
been made by both the republican and
the democratic arty that will require
year to repair, if, indeed, they can
ever be undone. In 1RD3 the democratic
party made its first fatal blunder by
an unconditional repeal of the purchas
ing clause of the Hherrnan silver act.
It bowed to the caprice of 0 rover
Cleveland, who was elected president
on a free silver platform, when it
should have stood as firm a a rock
and resisted every encroachment upon
that act unless it were accompanied by
a provision for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver and gold at the pres
ent legal ratio, I know, then, a I
know now, that it was a mUtake, and
it wa with some chagrin that I saw a
portion of the democratic party here
bow in humble submission to the will
of Wall street.
There wa a partial attempt to at
tone for tho error of repealing the
purchasing clause of the Sherman act
by the enactment of the seignorage
bill, but a horde of bankers and brok
er from New York came down upon
the president and it was promptly've
toed, and now it Is openly and boldly
declared by the advocate of the sin
gle gold standard that silver is a dead
issue. Iiut, sir, that remains to be
again tested.
Mr. President. I hold it to be true
that ours should be a purely domestic
policy that will build up the home
government and make our people
stronger, richer and happier, end at
the same time strengthen and fortify
them against every foe within and
without, and that our foreign policy
should be incident to a . strong . home
policy, and not Independent of it. If
we are to change a domcstie policy for
one of imperialism, we will be subject
to the complications and dangers of
the most reckless European govern
ment, past and present
It should not be thought by any
that the populist party is not ft com
pact, well equipped political organiza
tion. It represents two million and a
half votes. I ts pi at form of 1 890 is the
test of its faith, and that platform re
mains Intact in every sentence, plank
and provision. It will not be materi
ally changed. Monetary reform, anti-imperialism
and other great Issues
will be submitted by the party to the
people in 1U00, and they will be called
on to determine at tho ballot box
whether they are willing to throw
away, in the mad race fur the forvl
ble colon 1atioa of foreign peoples and
alien territories, the principles of lib
erty won by their ancestors and main
tained by themselves, that should be
transmitted untainted to their pos
terity What their verdict will be af
ter the issue is presented to them I
have no doubt.
Mr. President, in what I have said I
have in no manner undertaken to dis
cuss connectedly any of the questions
referred to, but I have spoken In a
general way, partly parsuial, partly
prophetic, and somewhat retninivtnt.
Mr. ProaUleut, iu the great gallery
of the aueiunt and modern world hangs
tho picture of this union of states, the
most beautiful and lovely of all nv
tlous. Moro tlisn eentury ago It

In hln beautiful apostrophe to the
Ship of State:
Sail on, O Union, trong and great!
Humanity, with all its fears,
With al the hope of future year,
I hanging breathless on thy fate)
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What Workman wrought thy ribs of
Who made each mast, and sail, and
What anvil rang, what hammer heal
In what a forgo and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock
"lis of the wave and not the rocki
Tis but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest's roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Hall on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes are all with thee,
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayer,
our tears,
Our faith triumphant o'er our fenrs,
Are all with thee are all with thee!

of Auditor Cornell some very sensation
al stories are being revived of the
formei's bank transactions, which if
true show up the pretended reformer ft
a Joseph on the surface only, and one
who lives by hi wit alone, One story
In effect is that George Abbott, the pres

Lichty, wa a depositor io the defunct
Citizen' Hank at the time of the failure,
and when he heard of the affair walked
from hi farm to town with ft rope in

story now being repeated is tbat after
the failure Mrs. Lichty was known to
have bill of large denomination sewed
up io ber skirt. Not long after tbe fail
ure tbe Llcbty bouubt a valuable qunr

believed to have been "saved" out of
tbe bank wreck. If there is anything
Cornell should be Impeached for it Is the
appointment of nam Lichty as bis iu

TboSourco of Boym' Suoceaa In
Getting a Majority of Demo
'i emtio Party,
Slaail op for 1'ouuUmii,
Plngree him started out to r form the
republican party uud all men will watch
hi efforts with Interest, lie bus a much
blger job on hand than lirynn did when
he undertook to reform the democratic
party, for the tradition of democracy
were on llryan's side, The republican
party has never bud but one great man
in it who was in full sympathy with the
common peoplo, "of whom (iod made so
many," aud he, Abraham Lincoln, wa
really a JiffurHoninu democrat as he
most plainly suys in that fumous letter
to tbe Host on committee, Plngree may
succeed far enough to keepfome thous-
and voting the republican ticket, who
would otherwise come to tbe populist
party and tbe result of it will be to give
aid and comfort to the money power,
banks, corporations and trusts, all of
whom he attack with so much bitter
ness. Pryan, by hi peruaslve eloquence,
faultless management and upright char
acter ha captured a majority In tb
democratic party, but every one of tbe
oid leaders and men of wealth in that
party continue to fight Mm. Tbe other
night the democrat in the bouse at
Washington held a caucus. There were
enough of Ilryan' enemie in that
caucus to prevent an expression on the
money question and confine their declar
ation to a denunciation of Imperialism,
but tbe senate stood by Ilryan and hi
iiiom theories,
Ilryan In tbe fight against tbe money
power io hi own party ba many ad
vantage over Plngree who I engaged
In tbe am kind of contest In tbe re
publican party. Pryan ha tb prestige
of tbe teaching of Jefferson and tb
glorloa and ucceful figbt made by
Jackson on tbe United State bank.
Plngree ba none of the rage of bi
party to back him up except Lincoln,
and every thing that Lincoln said npon
the subject ba o often been quoted by
Pryan that their use to auetaio ' Pingree
in the republican party ba been des
troyed. Above all, Ilryan basthematch
less eloquence that captures the very
hearts of tbe people where ever he goes.
Ilryan has still another advantage,
lie is everywhere and ail the time invit
ing tbe co-operation of other ttwn and
other parties. Pingree wants tbe thing
to be republican and nothing but re
publican. It must be all done inside of
tbe republican parly and a man must
brand himself "republican" or he can
bave nothing to do with it. With the
whole press of tbe party as well as all
the leaders and all the fund in the hand
of those against him, Pingree must fail
It Is not in the possibilities tbat he
should succeed. In his last tecb Mov,
Pinsrre spoke in part es follows:

much by commercial greed, by men like
your Ohio boss, who rules from Cleve
