you on any occasion, but it is peculiar
ly gratifying to meet you now, coining
hs u body to testify your united and
confident devotion to the Itcpiibllcan
principles enunciated by the national
lEcpiiblicau convention of I8'ii5.
"1 recognize your Inlluence as one
of the most potent factors in political
contests ami 1 am glad to know that
this year in a greater degree than ever
before, thu commercial men of the
country are united in the cause of the
Ilepublican party. You have not al
ways been In such close agreement
witli each other politically as now,
but then you have had experience and
. for four years or nearly so, you have
been attending tho school in'w hieh all
the rest of us have been pupils. It
has been u free sclu-ol. Tlie tuition
lias been free, but the ultimate cost
has been very great. No body of
American cili.uns of equal number

in the success wf Republican princi
ples than you; and none I am sure can
iloso much to secure llieir certain tri
umph as you.
"Vou are not only carriers of com
merce, but creators of contidence; not
only advocate; of process, but pruiuot
er.s of prosperity. I'verywhero you
inspire either conliileuce or distrust,
for you tell the truth about tlie condi

sell goods or used" to but you dis

You encourage tlie despondent and
quicken the lagging Into fresh activ

late new effort in that great body of
business men upon whom so largely
depends the revival of business in all
parts of our country.
"What wo want tibovc all else, my
fellow'eitli'ns. is conlidence. And we
cannot get conliileuce by thre-itculng
to revolutionize, all values and repu
