men : It goes without saying that It Is a pleas
ure lor me to bo hero and look you in tho face
and render some sort of an account of the way
in which I have performed tho duty which Is
yours , and which you have , from time to time ,
clothed me with the authority to execute tor
you. I believe i his is t he first time In the course
of my ollice that I have had the opportunity
of meeting an audience at this place and dis
cussing the questions of public interest. You
may ask why I am here , since the congress of
tho United States , or what Is left of it , is now in
session. The fact Is that the condition of public
business is such that it is absolutely impossi
ble tor the performance of any legislation ex
cept , by unanimoud consent , and I am bound
to ; say , from my experience , that there is just ,
as much prospect of securing the unanimous
consent for tho taking up andpassage of
wholesome laws by the congress of the United
States ' at tho hands of the democratic party ,
as i represented at present in the House , as
there would be a chance of getting a bulky
mule to pull down one of thespuisof the
Rocky mountains. It is absolutely impossible
to I get any legislation except by consent and I
fancy ( before 1 get through with this discussion
you will discover tlmteveii whenttiereisasuf-
iicient number of representatives present in
the congress to pass laws that ate required by
the t country , it is almost impossible to secure
their ' passage , and so it was a simple waste of
time for me to remain there under the circum
stances. Theie is no legislation that can pass
the ' House in tho face of an objection by nsin-
gle member of congress , because there is not
a quorum of the House present , and theie
has l not been for four mouths and there will
bo none until alter this eloetion.
This much I peihaps owe to y ou asexplana-
tory 1 lor uiy piesence here at all. 1 am frank
to say that my mind was divided as to my duty
in ; the premises , and it was only alter long con
sideration and urgent invitations trom my
constituents to come home , that I concluded
No man can ally himself to a party that ex
cuses him from tho lesponsibilities that go
with manhoodwith citizenshipwith the sover
eignty accorded him to govern himself and
participate in the government of the nation .
It is a cardinal proposition that the citizen
owes P ) the government his life , his loyalty.Q
his willingness to delend it , and to defend it at
no time so willingly as in its times of danger ;
and , the counterpart of this , it is the responsi
bility of tho government to watch over and
caie for and defend the citizen , the nation , and
these obligations meet the best requirements
Two gentlemen are presented to the people a
of the country tor their suffrages : One is Mr. h
Cleveland , and the other is Mr. Harrison.
Applause. ) I submit that tho proposition i
which I have laid down is as old as Christiani
ty , and that is that the hard condition running
ivitli greatness is the condifonot the man who
eeks it , to sacrifice himself for the good of *
Jthers. Whoever aspires lo greatness , to take
upon himself the mantle of power , must have
ed a life which will make it impossible for -
hose ho inquiie concerning it to Hud that he
las not met these responsibilities : that he has 1) )
jeen willing to sacrifice himself lor the good
f others ; that , as a citizen , he has been wili
ng to defend the government that protected
inn. Tliis is no new theory , born of tl > e beat
f the cam ass. From Christ hood to knight-
ood it has constituted the glory of mankind
mil has entitled its possessor to the immortal
ly of history. Judged by this ru e , how stand 'a
hese men in tho estimation of the public ? tl
L'hero was a time when duty called , when the
lay ofsaciiticein thiscountry dawned. There 0I >
vas a demand that spoke from the awt ul peril p'
f the nation , and the blow tailing , how weie
hese men. and how did these men acquit tbein-
elves upon that occasion ? ( Applause. ) Har-
ison answered under the rule and submitted
' mself. He went to work in defense of the
epublic. He went in person and represented
'mself. Mr. Cleveland , hearing the same call , g ;
ns deaf , so far as his personal responsibility
i-as . concerned and he hid himself , in the hour w
f the immortal peril of this republic , behind ot
he > convenience of a substitute. ( Cheers ) .
Icntlemen. ( it is perfectly proper for us to JU
lake inquiries concerning the manner in
the men offered for our suffrages have
let the responsibilities that have been ind
ent to citizenship. The issues are not personal
nd it is not my purpose in any way to attempt
degrade them to that. They are wide , and
niveisal and national. They are as comprer
ensive as the continent. Ttiey touch everyone
us. and they concern not only the well-being tic
to-day , but of to-morrow. 0f
In coming home I passed from Washington
Philadelphia , Philadelphia to New i'ork , and S1J
ew York to Chicago and so on. I trr.vel-
two thousand miles , one fourth of the dis-
ince through the diameter of the earth , one-
velfth of its circumference. I have seen the
haling place of three millions of denizens of
ew York and Brooklyn and one million and a
lf in Philadelphia , and I have ridden across 01 f
le portion of the continent where abide the
reater body of the sixty millions of popula-
on ot the United States. In making this trip
looked upon three great cities , traversed
leir streets and mingled Incidentally with
ieir population. I looked upon the homes
hundreds of thousands of the population of P&
le ( United States. I am able to come here top
ight and say truthfully that nowhere , fiom I
leend to the other of my journey , from the
ties on the eastern seaboard to this the eeti-
al portion of the continent , did any man put
it his hands and ask me for alms. Nowhere
d I see any person pursuing the avocation
a beggar ; nowheredid Isee any man under
ling suffering as a result of punishment lcr
invictiou I for cume ; nowhere did I see revolt ,
jwhere did I hear the rattle of the chains of
slave or crack of-the lash of a master. From
leend of the countiy so'ur ton aid the other len
am able to say that I looked upon people who
em to be possessed with the means of main
lining themselves decently and in order ,
hey were subject to the peaceable rules of
w. I saw neither debauchery , crime nor
jverty , nor was I challenged by it from one
id of the land so far toward the other. Where ,

lat Hap , can that story be told with truth ?
