will support McKinley
Mon. John Cl. Carlisle, formerly Speaker of the Mouse of Represen
tatives and Secretary of the Treasury under President Cleveland, has
accepted the Presidency of a Sound Money Club In New York and will
assist in the re-election of President McKinley. Mr. Carlisle's reasons
are covered by two utterances made In a speech at Chicago four years
ago. They still hold good. He said :
•• The greatest crime, short of
absolute political enslavement, that
could be committed against the
workingman in this country would
be to confiscate his labor for the
benefit of the employer by destroy
ing the value of the money in w hich
his wages are paid. But, gentle
men, this Irreparable wrong can
never be perpetrated under our
system of government, unless the
laboring man himself assists in
forging his own chains.” — Bon.
John (i. Carlisle, Democrat. Ex
Secretary of the Treasury, Chicago,
April 15, 1896.
“ No man who has a particle of
sympathy for working men and
women, and their dependent fami
lies, can contemplate the possibil
ity of such a calamity (free coinage
of silver> without feeling that it Is
his duty, whether he occupies a
public or private station, to em
ploy every honorable means at
his command to avert It.” Hon.
John (). Carlisle, Democrat, Kx
becretary Treasury,Chicago, April
15, 1896.
William Hintz, one of the best
known German farmers in Hancock
County, Ohio, gives this reason for
his conversion from Bryanism: "I
used to be a Democrat, and 1 was
one until I found that by voting the
Democratic ticket I was voting
against my Bbeep. I had a big
flock of sheep on my farm. The
Democratic party in 1892 initiated
free trade and took the duty off
wool. The price fell to 11 cents. It
made me think. I studied the ques
tion hard and conscientiously, and
from all sides. 1 looked at it in an
unbiased manner. What was good
for me certainly must be good for
my neighbor, and he must also suf
fer with me. If the price of my wool
depreciated, the cost of clothes
might be less, but I would have no
money to buy them. I studied the
matter carefully, and came to the
conclusion that I might Just as well
kill my sheep as vote the Democrat
ic ticket. Then came the cry of free
silver. In my life I have found that
it is wise to follow successful men.
Therefore if a man is a money
maker, why not watch him and try
the same methods yourself? I found
that the men of the country who
had money were against free silver.
I asked myself why, and concluded
free silver would be bad for my
sheep. I voted for McKinley and
the Republican platform and have
done so ever since. I shall support
the Republican ticket this year. I
am no longer a Democrat but a Re
publican. The Democratic platform
shifts its planks too often to suit
me. I am satisfied with the present
state of affairs, and so are my

Ex-Congressman James R. Camp
bell of McLeansboro, III., for years
a leader in the Democratic party of
Southern Illinois, has announced
his conversion to Republicanism on
the expansion question. He is a
colonel In the United States service
and has just returned from the
“ I have always been a Demo
crat,” said Colonel Campbell, “but
the party’s stand on the Philippine
question compels me to change my
political belief. I desire to be
know n as an expansion Republican.
Any Democrat, Bryan included,
who will go to the Philippines and
ascertain the exact situation, as I
know it, will come home convinced
the party Is wrong on the question.
We should hold the islands and
give the people a stable govern
ment. I believe the war In the
Philippines will cease as soon as
McKinley Is re-elected.”
Colonel Campbell’s wideacquaint
ance in Illinois led State Chairman
Rowe to ask him to make speeches
for the Republican ticket, but he
declined on the ground that his
furlough Is only for another month
and he has not the time to take the
stump. In 1884 Mr. Campbell was
elected as a Democrat to the house
from the forty-sixth senatorial dis
trict, and was re-elected In 1886.
Two years later he was promoted
to the senate, where he served
eight years. His legislative career
was criticised many times, but he
was ever known as a loyal Demo
crat. In 1896 he was elected to
congress on the Democratic ticket
In the twentieth Illinois dfstrict.
When the Spanish-American War
broke out he raised the Ninth llli
nois Regiment and was elected
colonel. He was the first congress
man to resign from the house to
accept a commission in the army.
He has been in the Philippines since
occupation by American troops.
Dr. J. A. Milburn, pastor of the
Second Presbyterian church of In
dianapolis, who has been a sturdy
champion of Democratic principles
in the past, intends to vote the Re
publican ticket this year. He says:
“l see no reason why a minister
should not express his political pref
erences, as well as any one else, i
have been for long years a Demo
crat, but at the last Presidential
election voted for McKinley. 1 will
vote for him again. Mr. Bryan, 1
think, is a good man, but he is the
incarnation of economic heresies,
and what is more he fails to under
stand the temperament and the
genius of a growing world. He has
not yet learned, evidently, that life
means growth, and that to cease to
grow means the beginning of death.
Whether, as Mr. Bryan says, world
dominion is our destiny or not one
thing is clear, and that is that ex
pansion is in our blood, and it is in
our blood not because of any love
of conquest of the world, but of our
passion for the world's betterment.
One thing that characterizes the
American Is his God-like ambition,
his supreme and splendid passion
for achievement. He is not satisfied
with the good. He yearns for the
better, and when he lias attained
tlie better he reaches out for the
best. He wants this to be the best
possible world, and. thank God, he
is man enough to do his share to
make it so.”
W. H. Nation, a leading Populist
of Erie, Neosho Co.. Kansas: "Mc
Kinley’s election was not attended
by the evil consequences predicted,
in fact the time since the election of
1896 has been a period of almost un
exampled prosperity. Instead of
men hunting work, you now find
work hunting men, and the doleful
predictions made four years ago
now read like a comic almanac, and
this fact has made it necessary to
create a new issue, consequently,
the question of imperialism has been
brought forward and the Democrat
ic party has become sentimental and
Is shedding tears over the wrongs of
the colored man (10,000 miles away).
I can see no reason why the Populist
party should any longer follow Mr.
Bryan, the fact that nearly all the
gold Democrats that bolted Bryan in
'96 are supporting him now leads
me to believe that secretly he has
abandoned the silver issue, and on
that issue only was he in sympathy
with the Populist party. From the
first I have been in favor of retain
ing the Philippines and sustaining
the administration.'’
