The speaker gave an eloquent peror

publican party. He brought into re
view all the great characters of Amer

178.'J and 1789 with the present time and

He closed his discourse by wondering
how it is that under a republican form
of government like ours all men are not
republicans, and telling the voters that
he would take it as a favor if they
would all vote for hiin.
Hon. Ti. (!. Hurd was then called for
and made the "hit" of the evening
when he informed I'rof. Andrews that
if he boat "the man from Cork" he will

the meeting was advertised to be held,
and although a fire breaking out on the
premises of our president drew many
away, yet a large and enthusiastic
audience greeted the speaker. It was
noticeable that Mr. Fairchild spoke as
a "lecturer of the alliance" and not a
a "people's party" speaker. Using his
own words he was a "member of no
party." "Was glad he had broken
loose from party ties. No party in ex

were all corrupt," and he "wished all

Then political regeneration of the
world will approach its accomplish
ment. A fall to the greatest must precede
the full, final, thoroughly political re
generation of the world. Yet no van
dal hands can ever reach and grasp and
secure this great boon to long suffer
ing, misgoverned humantty.
The right to change any existing
form of government, to amend or re
peal constitutions or statute laws, is
only given to the few statesmen who,
in originating and advocating meas
ures for the public good, are endowed
with the ability and wisdom io estab
lish better forms of government, and
enact more equitable laws.
No practical reformer ever attempts
to "take from any man what he trusts
in until he is prepared to accept the
substitute offered him." Anarchy lurks
in the breast of any man who, under
the mask of reform, proposes to "de
stroy the soul of the land, by the de
struction of its shrines and sanctua
ries," Let contentious sectarians wrangle
over their various translations of the
Word. It is our duty as citizens of
this great republic, as free electors, so
to use our franchise as to enact laws in
conformity with the decalogue, and
administer the laws in line with the
golden rule. Thus will come the politi
cal regeneration of the world.
