drifting she could scarcely lire half an

This intelligence had a most depress

"beets' la constant attendance upon his
taffllcted wife for over nine hours aad
he sustained himself with the greatest
-dlfflcnlty. If it were posslhlo to add to
'the gravity of tho situation and to
stimulate the agonized apprehension ot
the sorrowing family, gathered about
the scarcely animate form of tho be

were attained when. Dr. Gardner, after
carefully examining the countenance
and feeling the pulse of tho dying

to kta own room and closed tho door,
the other members of .the family re

to-remain unmolested to contomplato
his great bereavement and commune
with his Maker.
Telegrams conveying the sad Intelli

Tho market has been sagging for n long

it more difficult than ever to get tho
grain out of the country. There has
been a very large holding of wheat In

was bought bevcral weeks ago and has
beon the chief canso of tho Btubborn

thcrt cast his ballot with that party whleh meets
his IdoaL Thero aro two strlklwt questions In
the plaiforms before tho people this year.
I' Irst, the question of the abolition of tho ten
per cent tax on stale banks In congresssomo
several years agou MM w,s Introduced and
psssod placing a tax of tn per cent on all stato
bunks of tho country. This tax was not for
rovenuo, but It was ihe avowod purpose at that
tlmo Unit the stato bunks go out, and not for
tho state banks to come la Tho result was
tint tho stato banks did go out and greenbacks
citno Into clrcul uloa It Is now declared alter
thirty years that the ten per cent, tax must go
and the state banks bo rehabilitated, and thoio
uncertain notes of tho banks be again the tno
dlum of curroncy.
Tho governor then reviewed tho his
tory of "wild-cat" currency in former
days, contrasting it with the sound cur
rency under tho present system, and
If thoro li anything that shduld sianl sacred
anduntompcrod.wlth It Is the currency of a
country. Nothing Is so hard on the poor peo
ple of a countrv as a debased currency: the
rich niun can take csro ot himself and the man
of poMUon and power Is but llttlo affoctcd If a
currency dopreclates, but It Is the poor man on
whom tho heaviest burden and the heaviest
blow falls. There are but few of the old men
ot M!ourl who have not In their possession
somo of tho wildcat currency, now worthies
but for which thoy at one time paid 1 00 cents on
tho dollar. When a man rcIIs his wheat and
his labor ha should havo I0J cents on the dollar
for It It Is tho poor people of tho country who
nro Interested In this mono question. The
currency of n country should bo as national
as Us tug, and as sacred as Its Institutions.
Our currency Is good not only under our own
flag, but under ovcry commercial flag of tho
world. The troublo with tho demoeratio party,
which proposes to go buck to old a talc bank
money, has always been that they want to go
backwards Thoy have always been going
backwards. Thoy aro not ablo to see tho light
and sunshlno; thoy can only seo tho sight and
darkness They not only want to go back to
tho ttnto-bcllum currency but want to go back
to tho llrltish frco trade. Now tho British
manufacturers pay their holp piuper wages In
good money, but this democratic party pro
poses to go them one batter. It declares thut
In token of Its friendship towards tho laboring
man. It will cut hts wages down to tho llrltish
frcu trudo scalo and then beat them by paying
them In wild-cat currency.
Tho speaker thon gavo an illustration
of the difference between a demoeratio
revenue tariff and a republican pro
tective tariff, and continued:
This tariff has been In oDcratlon now about
eighteen months, and wo know what It will do
by what It has dono In tho last twclvo months.
In all tho history of our oouutry wo havo never
had itucb foreign commerce as In that time. It
has reached the highest water mark. Tbo
Pltty-tlrst congress was called tho "billion
dollar congress " It was a billion eight hundred
and ninety million dollar congress. Wo sold
abroad il,03,000,0J0 worth of tho products of
our farms and factories, etc Two hundred and
thirty millions In gold was paid ut the end of
this your by Knglund as tbo difference botwecu
what wo sold to her and what wo bought of
her. It Is Just like an Individual. It be takes In
more than ho sells ho Is out at tho end of tbo

countries by which our commcrco has been ln

for tho farmers' party, tho republican party has
been tho farmers' party, as well as tho people's
party, siuco tho beginning of Its orjfanliatlon
"The controversy is between tho two, the
demoeratio sjid republican parties, as they
havo named themselves. Tho demoeratio party
has n very popular name. It means n govern
ment through tho people Hut tho republican
party his u still morn popular name. It Is a
government by tho leprcscntntlvrs of the peo
ple, nnd that name expresses moro distinctly
the truo nature of our government than tho
tiame democratic. Hut tho demoeratio party
hos forfeited for moro than thirty years the
very nnmo of tho democratic party, and ought
now to bo christened the confederate democraey
of Atnirica.
"Now, ono Issuo between these two parties Is
whether tho pcoplo of tho United States, the
tnost practical pcoplo among tho nations of tba
world, aro willing tt abandon tho national cur
rency which has be-n established by the repub
lican 'party tutha form ot United States botas
and treasury notes und silver certificates and
gold cortlllcatcs, all of equal value, not only In
tho country of lho United States, but all orer
the civilized world. Whether wo will abandon
this form ofcurrcroy and rcvlvo again the old
currency of our tatters, tho red do abln
plastors of thirty cr forty years ago. This Is
ono of tho questions. Another of the questions
Is whether wo will nuthorlro any holder of 37H4
grains of silver, worth In tho msrkots nboutM
cents, to go to the treasury of the United
Stairs or to tho mint, nnd there demand a dol
lar: or If wo cannot coin tho dollars fast enough
to demand your note, tho noto of tho people of
the United States, for II. when tho
purchasing power of the silver In
that dollar Is but sixty tlvo cents. Or whether
on thu other hand, wo will buy that silver
at Its market price, coin It ns It Is needed by
tho people of tl.u United States, and maintain
It ut the standard of gold in all tho markets ot
thn world. That is tho second quot Hon. Tho
third question that also u fleets your Interests
Is whether, In levying duties on Imported goods
from which wo derive tho chief source of our
revenue, wo should be guided alone by tho mcro
obtaining of revenuo for tho support of tho
government, or whether, In addition to that,
wo should seek to diversify, increase and mug.
ntfy and Improve the domestic Industries of
our country, and lo protect the labor of our
people ngninst undue competition ahroad.
"Now, gentlemen, these questions uro to be
submitted to you. They nro as distinctly do
llnidby thojplatforms of tho two parties as
ever u coso was presented In tho supremo
court of tho United States. Tho sides aro
drawn and you nro to determine, it V.e, cannot
submit this qm at Ion to lawyers or to courts or
to congresses, but alter all the llnal settlement
must'bo determined by men like you, or twclvo
million others llko you, all of whoiri ought to bo
armed with an equal vote, but I fear In some
places that will nut bo tho ease. '
"Now, I want to discuss theso questions as
briefly r.s possible, In tho simplest form of the
English Innguagp. Tako the tlrot question. Tho
question Is presented by the demoeratio plat
form. It Is contained .la two lines, vory
simple llttlo proposition. Now, let me read It
to you: Wo icoommend that tho prohibitory
10 per eent. tax on Btato circulation be re
pealed. Well, now, at tho llrst outlook of
that simple resolution It would seem thut a tax
cf 10 per cent, on uny kind of circulation would
bo n very hoavy tax. and tho plain farmer would
say: -Thot Is too much tir. Why .not 3 per
'cent, orl poreontl' lho answer Is, tnycoun-trym'-n,
that that tax wns levied In tho midst of
war, In order to drlvo out of uxLstcnco and cut
tho throat of this syatem of stato bank paper
money, which had ruined tho country over and
ovrrugiln, and Involved It in trouble. It would
Bioko It tmiKissltile for stato liauks to cantlnuo
In existence, und why wos that? Why, my
countrymen, under tho constitution of tho
United States tho utntes aro prohibited from
emitting bills of credit, and bills of credit nro
suppoMd to be nny form or money to bo circu
lated as money. It forbids also that thoy
snotiiu maiio anything but gold and silver a
legal tender In piyracnt of debts. That Is tho
"When I coino to discuss tho noxt question I
sometimes grow.tmpallcnt. I say thcrclsbutone
solution of this question. One of them is sought
by tbo president of tho Unlb-d State,, by Hon
Janiln Harrison, by what Is called a commission
to atiitrtuln whether or nolun adjustment could
not bo mado between tho great nations ot tho
world, either by providing u new ratio, and
forming ns far us posslblo a uniform ratio, or. If
that could not bo agreed upon, to ngreo upon
what modo und manner and how far each nation
will mulnulii Its silver up to tho standard of
gold, and thus havo what Is called tho 'doublo
Blandurd' of silver and gold.
"Now, I don't know whether this will bo n suc
ctss I hope It m vy be. Hut ono thing I know
that If It falls, then you business men have got
to meet thin uroiiotilttnn! Vnti Inin r-iW h.n
f to stand upon a silver standard und banish our
gold to foreign lands or do tho othor thing,
whleh I uui In favor of.uud thatls to put enough
silver In the sliver dollar to mako It equal In
value to Dm t;old dollar. Thrio hundred and
seventy-ono und u quarter grains Is not enough
becauw) that Is only sixteen times tho number
of grains In the gold dollar. Hut if .171 Is not
enough, put in IS), uud mako It an honest dol
lar. If thut Is not enough put In K grains
"Hut our demoeratio friend Buys: Tho dollar
will bo too big. Then coin them Into half dol.
lurH und quarter dollars and somo other forms,
und then tlity won't bo too big. Hut tho trouble
with nemo of theso men and th it Is tholr ob
Ject in objecting lo a big dollar that thoy want
a llttlo dollar. Thev uro small peopte. They
want to pay honest debts with u small dollar.
"I know, my countrymen, tl.o party of tho
pcoplo of this country has b u tho republican
party. For years lho homestead law was de
layed longer, und lougcr, und longer, and tho
democratic party had tho power nnd two demo
eratio presidents vetoed it when It passed ion
grcs. When tho republicans camo Into power
. . .. .... "
it was passed nnd tho namo of Abraham Lincoln
Is signed to It; and a million laboring men have
gono out and established tholr homes and thoy
could not havo dono so without It. This pro
toctlvo system I havo mentioned that has dl
V rallied our Industries, built up our manufac
tures, is tho result ot tho labor of the repub
lican party founded upon tho Morrill tariff bill.
To show the progress made: In IbM our man
ufactures wero comparatively unimportant.
Our mining wus vory little indeed: and now,
thank Oodl thank tho republican party!
thank tho great men who have managed those
things! our country Is now pot only the great
est farming country In the world, producing
more ot tho cereals than uny other country, but
It is tho greatest mining country In the world,
and tho gross aggregato of our mining products
Is as high as that of uny tiro of, tho nations of
tho world. It is the greatest manufacturing
country la the world. Vby, this city Itself Is
tho best evidence I can bring before the poople
of Chicago to show what has been the result of
tho protective policy of tho United States that
has built up and diversified and fostered nil
branches of Industry.
Now, my countrymen, let us look at the gen
eml principles for 1 do not Intend to discuss
the details of tho tariff tonight. What Is tho
general Idea of tho tariff? Wo put u duty on
foreign goods which come Intooorn petition with
our own Industries. To thu extent ot that duty
our own Industries are proteutod against for-
' "T. ":"' "' f. '".:,i,..'!1uv J'""on
pojuiusnuruisu I'uiuinjiiuoiu oi lor inoDenent
of tho copltaltst. Ho can mauigo his money
whether he has It or not Not for tho rich man.
If ho cannot Invest In one thing ho can )n
another. Hut lho sole busts nnd foundation of
this protcctlvo policy Is that by levying these
duties on Imported goods which aro not levied on
iomvilla goods we are enabled te pay our labor
ing men In thin country fair and just wages for
honest labor. Cur laboring men need not, ought
not, and I trust to Clod novcr will be reduced to
tbo condition to which they nro reduced In tho
most favored nations of Europe. The labor
ing men hero nro citizens, the equals of
any thetottlost and proudest In the land. Thoy
havo every right to vote that anyone has, and
I would not trust tho superstructure of tho re
public upon tho basis of a dissatisfied popula
tion of laboring men. Thoy must feel that they
nro fairly considered in the raco Of life. They
must not only have enough to supply their
wants, but they must have enough to educato
their children and glvo them that advantago in
the raco ot llfo: so that now wo seo In tho de
velopment ot our country that the sons of the
poor attain tho highest positions In tho land.
Lincoln was a specimen, (lo to the sennto
chamber and sco thoro who make their mark In
that deliberate body. You will Ond thoy
started In tho race of life as poor as any man
here. So all around Look at the great men ot
your city. Thry slartod poor, and by improving
their opportunities and chances In llfo they
havo ntulcod suoccss and wealth. This la open
to all.
"Sometimes I know that tho results of protec
tion and tbo mode of dividing the result of pro
tection are sometimes very dlftcult te attain.
Whether sometime the employer gets more
than his share or not, I do not know. I suppose
so. Hut how can we help this? I wish to God
I wos wlso enough to sny. There will always
be controversies between employers and em
ployed as to tho division of theproduot ot labor.
Hut after all, these aro to be settled In bobm
peaceablo and qulst way: and I trust a genius
will somo time nrise in our domestio polloy that
will bo wIho enough to point out some modo of
arbitration by which all these controversies bo
tweon tho laborers and their employers may bo
settled without strikes nnd violence. I hope
the tlmo will como when tho general feeling of
our pcoplo will demand and Insist uponsuoha
settlement: and until then we must drift along
as wo havo boen doing. Certain it is, the labor
ing men of our country ore In a far higher con
dition than the laborers of nny other country.
That is tho reason they como from all lands
hero. Thot Is the reason why every one there
gets an Idea ot thn United States, and those
who como hero with industry and thrift have
planted themselves In all these states on farms
nnd homesteads and they havo built up the
manufactures In those states.
"Now, fellow citizens, whllo we levy duty on
goods that come into competition with us, we
gradually havo Introduced Into our system a
larger free trade than has over been propund
or adopted by the demoeratio party. And here
is a tact that Is not sufficiently brought to the
attention of tfitolllgent pooplo as to the present
tariff. Wo hava now admitted free of duty
fifty-live per coat, moro than one-half, of all
tho Imported goods Into this country. vMiyf
Hecauso they uro articles which wo cannot pro
duce In this country, like sugar, tea, coffco nnd
spices und various other urtlclcB, and thorcforo
tho present tariff selects out these articles
which wo cannot produce and admits them freo
of duty, becauso tho tax upon those articles
which wo cnunot produce is a tax upon tho con
sumer. Hut, upon the other hand, wo say that
ns to articles that wo can produce wo will put
such n reasonablo rate of duty upon them ns
will comix-nsato for the difference of labor In
this country uud In thu country of its produc
tion. And that Is not all. I say to you thaUus
n republiian-a 'black republican,' ns they used
tocullmosomollmes I would uot bo in favor
of any duty whatever upon any srtlclo brought
Into competition with our industries, except
enough to cover tho dlffcrcnco between tho rata
of wagos there and here."
