Address, THE COMMONER, Lincoln, Nebraska.
so many of our democrats attend the
convention at Denver, and I was glad
to hear from tho bulletins' that they
wero taking a more or less active
part in what went on there. The
campaign is not opened yet, and I
have really not been notified of my
nomination, but so many intimations
havo been given to me of the pur
prise that is in store, that it won't
be as sudden as it might, when it
comes. (Laughter.) The. reports,
that wo get from the country are
very encouraging, and one of them,
I think, especially deserves notice.
The promptness with which our dem
ocratic papers are tald'ng up the sub
ject of subscriptions to the campaign
fund is very encouraging. Several
have already opened subscriptions,
and I believe that it is going to be
quite generally followed. This is
probably a response to the party's
position in regard to publicity con
cerning campaign contributions (ap
plause), and it verifies the hopes of
those who believed that if the party
threw itself upon the confidence off
the masses of the peopje, if the party
announced its determination to rely
for its sinews of war upon contribu
tions, the voters will have an interest
in tho government that they have
not had heretofore. (Applause.) I
think it is an earnest of what is to
come. I think it is an auspicious
beginning of this new era in politics,
and I hope that this committee will
urge tho papers of Nebraska that
aro supporting tho ticket to join in
this movement. I believe that every
democratic paper should make itself
a collecting agency, and , when you
remember that we have several thou
sand' of these papers in the. country,
you' will understand wha't a consid
erable sum can be Teamed -when they
all begin work and when the readers
of these papers have ttiis subject
presented to them through earnest
That is all I care to say at this'
time, gentlemen,, The' issues have
been presented in the ' platform ' and
I have been getting letters from all
parts of the country expressing ap
proval of that platform. I. believe
that it is the best platform that this
country has known for generations
imii il BTjeciiicauy sets,., iorui tne
party's" "position." There1 .Is no trim
on hire: 'there is no liedferfne :'f there is
nd dodging; it is a frank, candid,
platform, and the impression that it
has made is a most favorable one.
And the republicans are already in
retreat on one subject." They turned
down the plank in regard1 to pub
licity -of campaign contributions;
they'turned it down in their conven
tion "hy an overwhelming majority,
and 'as soon as the democratic party
acted they felt it necessary to act.
They had about three weeks after
that convention in which to act, but
they did not do anything until the
democratic convention acted, and
then !we heard it announced that
thoy were going to publish the statement-rafter
the election (laughter
and applause), and the first intima
tion was that they would tret con
tributions wherever they could, and
tell about them after election; and
after the democratic national com
mittee acted and put that platform
pledge in effect, the republican can
didate announced that they would
receive no contributions from cor
porations. They have been moving
very rapidly thus far, and I am not
prepared to toll you what they may
do next. (Applause.)
Gentlemen, this is an auspicious
beginning, and I am glad that you
aro assembled here to prepare for
the work. We are expecting to have
Nebraska in the democratic column
this year. (Great applause.)
