    Horton Speaks for Republicans
(Itrincred llj John Jienjaroin Morton,
Jr., at Republican Meeting. Dreamland
Hall. Sent. 7th. 1932.)
CITIZEN can truthfully accuse the
Republican Party for this business
panic which is wrecking the main
springs of business and moral pro
gress without proving the truth of
that assertion backed by a preponder
ance of evidence much stronger than
the natural laws of life.
I have talked with bankers, lawyers,
merchants, editors, domestics, and
friends representative of all walks of
life, and the majority of these people
have agreed with me that it is not the
gold standard which has failed, not
capitalism, nor Statesmanship, nor the
facts of life having to do with the
working of barter and trade. NO!
The thing which has caused this tem
porary panic is the inability of the hu
man being to do common thinking
when he has cramps in his purse. In
the good days whew work is plentiful
and salaries fat, and people literally
throw their money to the winds just
for the pleasure of a moment, men for
get that good times never last forever
W hen lean days come, these same peo
ple complain, in sharp protest, that the
Government is the cause of it all. The
answer is as plain as day and night;
they forget to put plain thinking into
play by saving their money.
I’m just an ordinary newspaper-man
who knows nothing about the work
ings of the financial scheme, a fallacy
I share with too many men who pro
fess to know much about the monetary
system and. the administration of the
business scheme. I read quite a lot

of books and some of the most inter
esting of these are the Histories of the
United States of America, which is
more or less a history of panics. Any
body can generalize or theorize or
prophecy, and you can’t pin him down
and say he is mistaken. Just let an
individual state a thing as fact, and if
it is not fact, you’ve got him in a trap.
My countrymen who have lost faith
in the United States and its future
destiny and greatness, (I hope none
of you have lost that faith), are labor
ing under false impressions and are
off on the wrong foot, dancing along
with a blindfold over your eyes. In
less time than you can fathom, pros
perity will come again; it will creep
in as inevitably as night follows day
and as the moon shines at night and
the stars illuminate the nocturnal
heavens. It will come and it will lin
ger for a long, long time, ten or twelve
years. It is destined to be a better
and sounder and more magnanimous
prosperity than the minds of some
mortals can encompass and that we
have ever known, because after every
previous depression of ours, the pros
perous period has been better and
sounder. I’m saying these things
things not just as a full fledged per
on who has hopeful views on life; nor
shone all through these emergencies,
as a man upon whom the sun has
I’m saying these things as a young
man who has had plenty of exper
ience in taking it on the chin, because
I didn’t profit by my own knowledge
nor act as histo-y told me I should
act. I’ve had many of the woes, with
some extra trimmings. I’m in the same
tub as every one else, and maybe a
litle worse off; but I haven’t lost one
thing that many folks have lost, and
haven’t jumped into an ocean of ter
ror; I haven’t been so foolish as to
conceive that this chaos is more than
a temporary state of affairs which
will come to an end; and I haven’t
grown so idiotic as to lay the cause of
| this dilemma at the doorsteps of the
present administration at Washington
whose every effort is directed toward
effecting human relief through well
through the courageous leadership of
organized governmental functions
that grand and noble patriot whose
name will always linger in my mind
and whose efforts will be printed on
i the sands of time; and my leader’s
name is Herbert C. Hoover. My opin
ion is that we’ll never, in our life-time
be present at such an opportunity for
moderate wisdom and common or
backyard courage to lay the basis oi
fortune. I intend to! I mean to
emerge from this unfair state of af
fairs with seeds planted that will
grow me more of a competence than I
ever had before. Anyone of us car
do it if he or she only realizes the
1 •_4.U,
\\ e ve naa a Daiwers omw
year 1800, and and at least three ol
them were so much wrorse than this
. ,ne that the present predicament
looks like a gold rush or a buffalo
stampede. The Napoleonic wars did
their work of destruction and the
aftermath was a world of suffering
and some people will say that there
never wras a world war before to help
break down the economic machinery
,jf the whole earth. If Napoleon did t
run a world war, and keep it going
about four times as long as we kept
' this last war running, then somebody
has been writing little white lies. No
body was involved in the Napoleonic
wars but France and England and
Holland and Spain and Italy and
Russia and a few others, including
Uncle Sam. To make the matter worse
we had just finished up a terrible war
v th England. India was in revolt
and China was in upheaval. If that
wasn t a world war, go find me a bet
ter one. The panic of 1837 came
along later, about as many years after
Napoleon was abated as this one
came after the Kaiser was dethroned
and sent into exile. The world was
in a state that bordered on saying that
this was the end of civilization, and
that we never could emerge from it,
and that money could never make
money any more. Banks were pop
ping all over the United States like
ft ecrackers on the fourth of July.

After kissing a little black boy on the head, he remarked, “I willingly go to the
gallows; that you may have a chance in life.”_
, were starving; there was no work;
j business was at a standstill. You can’t
name a condition that obtains today
that didn’t exist then, only a little
more severe. Well, we stepped right
into the steam age. We invented the
cotton gin and the steam boat and
weaving and spinning machinery and
in a couple of years, a little longer
than the present depression, has been
going on, we went into a period of
activity and prosperity the like of
which the world (whole) had never
seen. Now, some of you folks ask
| the question in your minds; How did
we come out of it? I’ll answer your
question. Just what they are doing
now, nothing, and they are doing that
very poorly. The thing that brought
us out of it was that the masses of
people naturally have a foundation of
intestional fortitude; and the creative
and inventive brains of the world did
their job, and the first thing every
body knew, the world was at work and
buying and selling. You can’t stop
the operation of a natural law by
imuwjiig tx udiih presiuem, at iu me
pendulum had swung too far one way,
and it had to swing back the other.
The genuises of finance couldn’t stop
what they called the Great Blizzard—
it. Then came the panic of 1837 or
more like this one than the panic of
1837. We went through twelve years
of what the Historians called com
mercial optimism. The States of Eu
rope had been in a state of'revolution.
The year 1848 saw tottering thrones;
we had fought a war with Mexico. All
the world had gone crazy just as it
did in 1929, and there was a wild in
flation of credit and the same cock
eyed sinking of capital. The States,
counties, railways, industrialists,
cities, and promoters had incurred a
debt which grew to a point where the
general public could not absorb it.
You had overproduced railroads and
canals worse than we overproduced
automobiles and radios and the rest in
1929. Industrialists expanded their
plants because they thought it was al
ways going to last. The blow-up
came just as it came in 1929; railroads
went broke; practically every bank in
the United States with exception of
one in New York, a few in Kentucky,
and four in New Orleans suspended.
Prices on commodities fell 33%; real
estate values declined; and fourteen
railroads failed. After the Crimean
war. Russia began dumping grain.
Then President in his an
nual message said:
“Our country in its monetary inter
ests, is at the present moment in a
deplorable condition. In the midst of
unsurpassed plenty—in all the ele
ments of national wealth—we find our
manufacturers suspended, our public
werka retarded, 0CT private enter
prizes abandoned, and thousands of
useful laborers thrown out of employ
ment or reduced to want.” Mind you!
that was President Buchanan’s idea
and there never was a President given
to over steting pitiful conditions. In
less than three years—1860 the coun
try started its recovery of confidence
tion was IRON, and it advanced and
' surpassed any previous figures. Rail
way stocks rose on an average of a
third. By the end of 1860, the recov
i ery wa^ complete and Uncle Sammy
I found himself in the same prosperous
condition as before panic occurred.
Depression never lasted very long and
| the longest one we have known was
: for five years, after 1873.
Many people are so pre-occupied
with fear of the future that they
make a mess of the present. There
aren’t any prophets but there is a
clock, and every hour that you waste is
just so much capital thrown away.
Some people are peculiar; they con
ceived that if it rains they’ll never be
able to go out again without an um
brella. Noah’s rain lasted 40 days and
40 nights but it ended eventually.
When a storm comes along, jump into
a storm cellar, but don’t make prepa
rations to stay there the rest of your
living days, because there never was
an endless storm and there never was
an endless panic.
In the past 132 years we have had
one year of adversity for every four
years of prosperity. We have proved
that by passing through 13 panics, we
can emerge from the 14th in a big
way. We shall have unexcelled pros
perity just as we have had after ev
ery depression, in a very , very short
while. If something happens one,
two or three times, it makes you won
der but, my fellow countrymen, if it
happens 13 times in a row then the
greatest scientist in the world will i
tell you that you have discovered a
law. This law is that there is an ebb .
and flow in finance which is going to
function just as the tides of the At
lantic and Pacific Oceans ebbs and
flows. We can’t do anything about it;
nor stop it nor hasten it. It is going
to flow in graciously for about 12
years and then it is going to exit and
ebb for about three years, and it is
going to keep on doing the same thing
eternally. Don’t go sour on the fut
ure of this country or the world; don’t
condemn the Republican party for this
panic for they just happened to be in
power at the time and they are made
to shoulder the burden and carry this
gTeat load and they are doing the job
wisely and best they know how. And
after the stormy battles of party poli
tics shall have ceased and the winds
of « new day shall have blown the
tory, I hope to hear the voices of
Herbert C. Hoover. Howard Malcolm
Baldrige, Rosenbloom, John Adams,
Singleton, Counsman, Griswold and
all the rest (all of those loyal Republi
cans), in sweet accord chanting,
“Glory, Glory, Hallelujiah. And just
over the mountain top, I hope to see
the messenger of prosperity, and the
dawn of a new day which is the dream
of all mankind.
