Col. Finloy Anderson,
Now York City,
My Dear Colonel:
Your letter recalls other days,, when
two millions of our comrades were
engagod in a great war, and more than
half a million of the flower of Amer
ican manhood wont to untimely graves.
I realize that our comrades of that
momentious period, our comrades of
'the "war of civilization" on our "West
ern frontier and those of the recent
Spanish war, will ever cherish an in
tense interest in the welfare and hon
or of the republic. I also realize that
all our fellow citizens are about to
exercise the rights and privileges of
the elective franchise, many o them
for the last time, and many of their
sons and grandsons for the first
Whether they be In the public service
or in civil life, the ad' is a sacred
duty more Important and potential
than any other act of political respon
sibility. It is a duty too serious to
be influenced and controlled by par
tisan sympathy, lust for office, selfish
ambition, control of power or even
personal and private interests. Tho
perpetuity and welfare of democratic
institutions is superior to any other
interest, for they Involve the very lib
erties and blessings which our fathers
established and we had the privilege
Your letter is similar to many com
munications that I have received from
comrades n all parts of the country,
in replying thereto I feel that In ex
pressing my opinion of the present
condition of national affairs to the
hundreds of thousands of men who
have given the best years of their
lives to the service of the republic, 1
am addressing a body of supremely
earnest and conscientious patriots, and
therefore I prefer to speak thus open
ly through them to all our fellow citi
zens in every section of the Union.

Montgomery Ward & Co.,
Mlchlcan Ave,, Madison and Washington Sts., Ohlcaeo,
On March 20. 1790. Hoimf iTWafoi
the sole admiral of France and presi
dent of tue French Society of Cincin
nati, wrote to General Washington
tnen president ,of, tho United States',
and in the course of his letter said:
ino name of Caesar among the Ro
mans was considered as the first of
all noble titles and the emperors of
Germany decorate themselves with it
to this day; Caesar enslaved his coun
tryyou have liberated yours."
It was the avowed intention and
prayer of Washington and tho found
ers of the Constitution to establish a
government that could bo so admin
istered with such integrity and wis
dom that in time our neonln wnnin
have the glory of recommending it to
the peoples of the earth who were
then strangers to it. Their intention
was not to force this system of gov
ernment upon the neonles nf nth.
I countries, but rather bya splendid ex
ample f6 influence other nations to
adopt ' similar form of liberal gor
eminent This design has been emi
nently Successful in promoting- the
greatest blessings that any people- have
over enjoyed and- the development of
the sparsely populated colonies of the
Atlantic coast into tho mightiest re
public of eighty millions of freemen.
And not only this, but sixteen other
countries, south of the Rio Grande,
have thrown off the yoke of foreign
oppression and adopted constitutions
copied after ours, and now their iifty
millions of people are in the enjoy
ment of privileges similar to our own.
We have now reached the parting
of the ways, and the question whether
we shall continue that glorious career
which our fathers Inaugurated and
our comrades, living and dead, pre
served, or whether we shall take that
other course which has been fatal to
other republics in the world's history,
must bo determined by the sovereign
act of our people on the 8th of next
November. Our fathers. In establish
ing the government, with consumate
wisdom created three great co-ordinate
branches the legislative executive and
judicial. Tho history of our country
shows that for more than one hun
dred years political parties have ex
isted; and now to assume that there
Is but one party, composed of ap
proximately one-half of tho voters,
that Is fit or qualified to administer
the executive branch of the govern
ment, and that even in that party
there is but one man qualified to hold
the highest position, is utterly un
warranted, and, in fact, a serious re
flection upon the intelligence and pa
triotism of the American citizen.
I assume that members of one par
ty are just as conscientious, sincere
and honest as those of the other, and
have just as much right to their opin
ions and will perform their political
duties with as much integrity. If we
have reacheu the condition in which
there is but one party of class that
can be trusted with the duties of the
executive department and only one in
dividual to exercise the powers of the
highest position, then we have reach
ed a condition of aristocracy and im
perialism that is only found or tol
erated in despotic countries.
Long-continued control of anv
government, whether municipal, state
or national, tends to corruption, arro
gance, conceit, selfishness and despot
ism; and it is only by the lawful ac
tion of the Citizens in changing the of
ficials, examining the books, investi
gating the wants of tho people and
providing for their welfare, that a
wise and good administration df- pub
lic affairs can exist, or has a right to
exist, in a republican government it
has been by this method that great
evils in the national government, as
well as in the state and municipal
Kuvernments nave oeen eradicated, and
should there be a change in the com
ing election by which the executive
and the house of representatives
should be entrusted to other citizens
there will undoubtedly be a careful
examination of official transactions
and of the true state of the people's
interests, a bettor administration of
public affairs, and in many respects
an Improvement in the business con
duct of the government.
The humane, benevolent and gen
erous purpose with which our people
without regard to political opinions or
affiliations, unanimously espoused the
cause of those struggling Cuban pa
triots for independence, will ever be
one of the glories of our history yet
unfortunately, that very act allured
our people for a time to a reckless ex
penditure of public money' and an ex
travagant idea of te'rr'itorial expan
sion, regardless ' of the rights of 'the
people Of other countries; 'SMcli'la
purpose was purely 'urfdomocra'tic and
un-American. It Is not unusual that
human measures are perverted to ani
fish, purposes and carried beyond th9
limiU of wis discretion. That senti
meiit of unlimited expansion and the
colonization of subjugated people la
