Mr. Chairman and Members of the I fluence of his ballot upon the side of
Notification Committee: I those who desire to protect the public
in accepting the presidential nomi-
nation which you tender on behalf of
the populist party, I desire to give em
phatic recognition to the educational
work done by your party. The populist
party as an organisation, and the
Farmers' Alliance and Labor organiza
tions from which they sprung, have
done much to arouse the people to a
study of economic and industrial ques
tions. Believing, as I do, that truth
grows, not in seclusion, but in the open
field, and that it thrives best In the
sunlight of full and free debate, I ha
confidence that the discussion which
your party has compelled will aid in
reaching that true solution of pending
problems toward which all honest citi
zens aim.
I desire also to express my deep ap
preciation of the liberality of opinion
and devotion to principle which have
led the members of your party to enter
the ranks of another party in the se
lection of a candidate.
While I am grateful for the continence
which the populists have expressed in
me, I am not vain enough to regard as
personal their extraordinary manifesta
tions of good will. The ties which bind
together those who believe In the same
great fundamental principles are
stronger than ties of affection stronger
even than the ties of blood; and co-operation
between the reform forces is
due to the fact that democrats, popu
llts and silver republicans take the
F.ide of the people in their contest
against organized greed and agree in
the application of Jeffersonian princi
ples to the questions Immediately be
fore us.
In 1S96 the money question was of
paramount importance, and the allies
In that campaign united in the de
mand for the immediate restoration of
silver by the independent action of this
country at 16 to 1, the ratio which has
existed since 1634. They were defeated,
but that did not end the discussion.
TBe democrats were defeated in lHf&,
but that did not put an end to tariff
reform. The republicans were defeated
in 182, but that did not permanently
overthrow the protective tariff. De
feat at the polls does not necessarily
decide a great problem. Experience
alone settles questions. If an increase
In the volume of the currency since
1896, although unpromised by the re
publicans and unexpected, has brought
Improvement in industrial conditions,
this Improvement, Instead of answer
ing the arguments put forth in favor
of bimetallism, only confirms the con
tention of those who insisted that more
money would make better times.
The republican party, however, while
claiming credit for the increase In cir
culation, makes no permanent provision
for an adequate supply of standard
mnner if it,t In- r.irpKitr f!r wr
real money, while it permits national
banks to expand the volume of paper
promises to pay money.
If the populists felt justified in op
posing the republican party when it
sought to conceal its gold standard
tendencies under the mask of Interna
tional bimetallism, the opposition should
be more pronounced In proportion as
the republican party more openly es
pouses gold monometallism
In 165 the reform forces charged the
republican party with Intending to re
tire the greenbacks. This charge, de
nied at that time, has been confessed
by the financial bill, which converts
greenbacks, when once redeemed. Into
gold certificates, and extends new priv
ileges to banks of Issue. If a populist
opposed the republican party when its
hostilities to greenbacks was only sus
pected, that opposition should be great
er now since no one can longer doubt
the purpose of the republican party to
substitute bank notes for greenbacks.
It Is true the populists believe in an
Irredeemable greenback, while t he
democrats believe In a greenback re
deemable In coin; but the vital question
at this time, so far as paper money U
concerned, is whether the government
or banks shall Issue It. There will be
time enough to discuss the redeemabll
Ity of the greenback when the green
back Itself is saved from the annihila
tion which now threatens it. The re
publican party is now committed to s
currency system which necessitates a
perpetual debt, while the populist finds
himself in agreement with the demo
crats, who believe in paying off the na
tional debt as rapidly as possible.
If belief In an Income tax justified a
populist in acting with the democratic
party In 1896. what excuse can he find
for aiding the republican party now,
when even the exigencies of war have
not been sufficient to bring that party
to the support of the income tax prin
ciple? Populists believe In arbitration now
as much ss they did In 1894, and are
as much opposed to government by In
junction and the blacklist as they were
then, and upon these subjects they have
as much reason for co-operation with
ths democratic party today as they had
four years ago.
Democrats and populists alike favor
the principle of direct legislation. If
any difference exists as to the extent
to which the principle should be ap-
pnea, i nose differences can be recon
ciled by experiment.
Democrats and populists agree that
Chinese and other oriental labor should
be excluded fora the United States.
Democrats and populists desire to to
enlarge the scope of the Interstate
commerce act as to enable the commis
sion to protect both persons and placet
from discrimination, and the public at
large from excessive railroad rates.
The populists approve the demand tet
forth la the democratic platform for s
labor bureau, with a cabinet officer at
its head. Such an official would keep
the administration In close touch with
the wage-earning portion of the popu
lation and go far toward securing such
remedial legislation as the tollers need.
In 18M the populists united with the
democrats In opposing the trusts, al
though the question at that time ap
peared like a cloud scarcely larger than
a man's hand. Today that cloud well
nigh overspreads the Industrial sky.
The farmer does not participate in the
profits of any trust, but he sorely tel
the burden of them all. He Is depend
ent upon the seasons for his Income.
When he plants his crop he knows not
whether It will he blessed with rain or
blighted with drouth; he knows not
whether wind will blow It down, or hall
destroy It, or Insects devour It. and
the prtce of his Top Is as uncertain at
the quantity. If a private monopoly
ma suspend production and Ax the pr.es
of raw material as well as the price of
the asriahed prod act. the farmer, pow
ailaan to protect himself when be sells.
M plundered when h purchases. Can
aay lirnser hesitate to throw the la-
at large from monopolies?
The fact that the trusts support the
republican party ought to be sufficient
proof that they expect protection from
it. The republican party cannot be re
lied upon to extinguish the trusts so
long as It draws its campaign contri
butions from their overflowing vaults.
The prosperity argument which the
republicans bring forward to answer all
complaints against the administration
will not deceive the farmer. He Knows
that two factors enter into his income
First, the size of his crop, and, second,
the price which he receives for the
same. He does not return thanks to the
party In power for favorable weather
and a bountiful harvest, and he knows
that the republican party has no policy
which insures a permanent Increase in
agricultural prices. Since he sells hie
surplus in a foreign market, he is not
a beneficiary of the tariff, and since he
produces merchandise and not money,
he does not profit by the appreciation
of the dollar. He knows that the much
vaunted prosperity, of which he hah
never had his share, ie on the wane In
spite of the unusual and unnatural
stimulation which it has received dur
ing the last three years. He knows that
each month of 1100 shows a larger num
ber of failures than the corresponding
month of l(i9, and that there Is already
a marked tendency toward a decrease in
the output of the factories. He knows
also that discoveries of gold, famine
abroad and war on three continents
have not been able to raise the price of
farm products an rapidly as trusts and
combinations have raised the price of
the things which the farmer buys.
Our opponents have tried to make It
appear that we are Inconsistent when
we desire a general rise in prices and
yet oppose an arbitrary Use In pro
tected manufactures or trust-made
goods. There is no conflict between
these two propositions. If a genera;
rise In prices occurs because of a per
manent Increase In the volume of
money, all things adjust themselves to
the new level, and if the volume of
money then Increases In proportion to
the demand for money the price level
remains the same anO business can be
done with fairness to all. If. however,
the rise is arbitrary, and only affects
a part of the produces of labor, those
whose products do rot participate In
the rise suffer becaune the purchasing
power of their lncom is decreased. If
a bad monetary system drags down the
price of the farmer' products, while
monopolies raige the price of what he
buys, he burns the Cindle at both ends
and muat expect to Buffer In compari
son with those who b long to the classes
more favored by legislation.
It is sometimes urged by partisan
populists that four four years more of
republican misrule wjuld so aggravate
economic conditions as to make re
forms easier. No our can afford to aid
in making matters ivorse In the hope
of being able to make them better aft
erward. for In so doing he ast umes re
sponsibility for evils which he may not
be able to remedy. No populist, how
ever sanguine, believes it possible to
elect a populist president at this time,
but the populist party may be able to
determine whether a democrat or a re
publican will be elcted. Mr. Chair
man, the populist convention, which
your committee represents, thought It
better to share with the democrats In
the honor of securing some of the re
forms desired by your party, than to
bear the odium of remaining neutrt:
in this great crisis, or of giving open or
secret aid to the .republican party,
which opposes all thi? reforms for which
the populists contend.
Those who labor to Improve the con
ditions which surround their fellow men
are apt to become impatient; but tbey
must remember that it takes time to
work out great reforms. Let me illus
trate by calling your attention to the
slow growth of public opinion In sup
port of a proposition to which there
has been practically no open opposition.
President Johnson, In 1868. recommend
ed a constitutional amendment for the
election of United States senators by
a direct vote of the people, but his rec
ommendation met with no response.
About twelve years later. General Wea
ver, then a member of congress, tried
to secure the passage of a resolution
submitting such an amendment, but
his efforts were futile. In 1892, the res
olution recommended by President
ohnson and urged by Congressman
Weaver finally pased the house of rep.
resetatlves, but It has not yet reached
a vote of the senate. And now, after
eight years more of public discussion,
the proposition for the first time re
ceives the indorsement of the national
convention of one of the great parties.
If the fusion forces win a victory
this fall, we shall tee this reform ac
complished before the next presidential
election, and with Its accomplishment
the people will find it easier to secure
any remedial legislation which they
may desire. 3ut how halting has been
the progress! Holland has said:
Heaven Is not guinea by a single
We build the lsdder by which we rise.
From the lowly earth to the vaulted
And mount to Us summit round by
And so It Is with great social and
political movements. Great problems
are solved slowly, but struggling hu
manity marches on. step by step, con
tent if at each nlght:'all It can pjtch Us
tent on a little higher ground.
I have called attention to the Issues
which brought the democrats and pop
ulists together, and which have justi
fied their co-operation during the last
four years. Let me now invite your
attention to new questions which would
justify co-operation at this time, even
though we differed upon all economic
questions. It Is not cur fault that these
new questions have been thrust Into the
arena of politics; it It not our fault that
the people have been called upon to
consider questions of ever-lncrrssing
magnitude. In 180 the tariff question
wss the principal subject of discussion
and the democratic party contended
that the masses were carrying a burden
of unjust and unnecessary taxes. In
1892 the tariff question was still the
principal Issue between the democratic
snd republican partis, although In the
west and south the money question wV
assuming greater and greater propor
tions, and the populists were contend
ing that our monetary system was more
responsible than the tsrtff laws for the
depression In agriculture and the dis
tress existing among ine wage earners.
In isM the whole question of tai
became of secondary Imports
eauae of the Increased boldness of those
who opposed the gold and sliver coin
age of the oonstltutlon. When the re
publicans declared at St. Louis thut the
rMorttn of bimetallism In this coun
try, although dealraole, was Impossible
without the aid of the leading commer
cial nations of the old world, lhe pop
ulists and silver republicans joined
with the democrats In asserting the
right and duty of the American people
to shape their financial system for
themselves, regardleft of the aMlon of
other nations. The failure of the re
publican party to sicure International
bimetallism and Its open espouna! of
the gold standard, still keeps the money
question In politics, but no economic
question can compare In Importance
with a question which concerns the
principles and structure of government.
Systems of taxation can be changed
with less difficulty than financial sys
tems, and financial systems can be al
tered with less danger and less disturb,
ance to the country than the vital doc
trines upon which free government
In the early '60s, when we were en
gaged In a contest which was to deter
mine wnemer we buuuiU have one re
public or two, questions of finance were
lost sight of. Silver was at a premium
over gold, and both gold ani silver were
at a premium over greenbacks and
bank notes, but the people could not
afford to divide over the money ques
tion in the presence of a greater issue.
And so today we are engaged in a con
troversy which will determine whether
we ate to have a republic in which the
government derives its Just powers
from the consent of the governed, or
an empire In which brute force is the
only recognized source of power.
In a government where the people
rule, every wrong can be righted and
every evil remedied, but when once the
doctrine of self-government Is Im
paired and might Is substituted foi
right, there is no certainly that any
question will be settled correctly.
A colonial policy would so occupy the
people with the consideration of the
nation's foreign policy that domestic
questions would be neglected. "Who
will haul down the flag?" or "Stand
by the president," would be the prompt
response to every criticism of the ad
ministration, and corruption and spe
cial privilege would thrive under the
cover of patriotism.
It is not strange that the popuSlsts
should oppose militarism and Imperial
Ism, for both are antagonistic to the
principles which populists apply to
other questions. Looking at questions
from the standpoint of the producer of
wealth, rather than from the standpoint
of the speculator, the populists recog
nize in militarism a constant and In
creasing burden. The army worm,
which occasionally destroys a field of
wheat. Is not nearly so dangerous an
enemy to the farmer as a large stand
ing army, which Invades every field of
Industry and exacts toll from every
If 100,000 men are withdrawn from
the ranks of the producers and placed
as a burden upon the backs of those
who remain. It must mean longer hours,
harder work and greater sacrifice for
those who toil, and the farmer, while
he pays more than his share of the
expenses of the army, ha.s no part in
army contracts or In developing com
panies, and his wing are less likely to
HI! the high posiiims in the army than
the sons of thope who, by reason of
wealth or noijttcal prominence, exert
influence at Wushingtor..
Soon after the republican leaders be
gan to suggest the propriety of a colo
nial policy, the papers published an In
terview given out frm Kan Francisco
by a foreign consul residing at Manila.
He declared that the people of the
United States owed It to themselves,
and to other nations, and to the Fili
pinos, to hold the Philippine Islands
permanently. At the conclusion of the
interview there appeared the very sig
nificant statement that the gentleman
was visiting the United States for the
purpose of organizing a company for
the development of the Philippine Isl
ands. A few days later, on ' his say
east, he gave out another interview in
which he explained that the company
which he Intended to organize would
establish banks at Manila and at o'her
places throughout the Islands, and
build electrie light plants, water plants,
street car lines, railroads, factories, etc.
It w'med that the plan of his syndicate
was to do all the developing and leave
the rest of the American people nothing
to do in the matter except to furnish an
army sufficient to hold the Filipinos In
subjection while they were being de
veloped. At the present rate we will spend
annually upon the army approximately
half as much as we spend for edu
cation In the United States, and this
Immense sum Is wrung from the tax
payers by means of taxation . which
overburden the poor man and undertax
the rich man.
In the presence of such an Issue as
militarism It is Impossible that any
populist should hesitate as to hit duty.
But even the menace of militarism Is
but a part of the question of Imperial
ism. The policy contemplated by the
republican party nullifies every princi
ple set forth In the Declaration of In
dependence, strikes a blow st popular
government and robs the nation of its
moral prestige. Already the more ad
vanced supporters of the colonial Idea
point to the economy of a system of
government which entrusts all power
to an executive and does away with
the necessity for legislation. The Army
Navy Journal, In Us Issue of A u rust 4,
commends the English system snd de
clares that as a result of this syrtem,
a fifth of the world's area, containing
a fifth of the population. Is ruled with
an administrative economy which Is un
administrative marvel, and adds:
'One million two hundred thousand
dollars spent In London Is the price of
administrative order over a colonial
rule whose total budgets aggregate $1,-
724,3M,8. or W per cent more than our
total of federal, state, county and vil
lage expenditures for every possible
purpose, for which taxes are levied. In
contrast to the results of this system
of executive administration, the fact Is
cited that the American congress has
spent an entire winter wrestling with
the tariff, the taxation, the administra
tion and the personal rights of two lit
tle Islands. The English executive It
an Imperial executive. The British par
liament Is an English legislature. TO
far as citlsenthlp Is concerned. the
British empire Is one. but beyond the
limits of the United Kingdom the cit
izen lives under a rule essentially mon
archical, and not restricted by the con
stitutional limitations of the parliamen
tary system."'
Thus does Imperialism bear Its sup
ers back toward me oark ages.

Where the divine right of kings I
rwognized, the monarch can grant dif
ferent degrees of liberty to different
subjects. Tha people of England can
be ruled in one way. the people "f
Canada in another, the people of lie
land In another, while the people of
India may be governed according to
still different forms. But there can be
no such variety In a republic. The dex
trine of a republic differs from the doc
trine of a monarchy as the day differ
from the night, and between the two
doctrines there is. and ever must be, un
irrepressible conflict.
Queen Victoria has recognized this
necessary' antagonism between tha
democratic and the imperial form it
government. In proroguing parliament
a few days ago. she said:
'Believing that the continued poet
ical Independence of the republics would
be a constant danger to the peace of
South Africa, I authorized the annexa
tion of the Orange Free State."
A republic Is always a menace to a
monarchy. Just as truth Is always a
menace to error. Self-government, be
ing the natural government, must nec
essarily create dissati? fa'.l n among
the subjects of those governments
which build upon some other founda
tion than the consent of the governed.

ISM. Every step taken towards Imperial

and effusive encouragement from Eu

which European nations have In the
abandonment here of the doctrine of
equal rights. He said:
