Cleveland , .HIM mul "Whitney.
A strong movement is said to Imvo
developed In .Ron * York In favor of mak-
np Secretary Whitney the democratic
candidate for Governor. It is not un-
tkoly that Mr. Whitney has nn ambi-
Lion in this direction , and for obvious
reasons. Four years hence Now York
Is quite as certain to bo the pivotal
state for the democracy tis It is this
year , and the man whoso fortune it
shall bo to occupy the gubernatorial
office meantime , If -democrat , will
iavo a com man ding advantage in the
icxt national democratic convention.
From this political point of view , the
governorship of Now York is the most
mportant position in the country
after the .presidency. Mr. Whit
ney is ambitious of political
elevation , mid it ho could attain the
executive olllco of the Empire state -his
chance of reaching the highest politi
cal eminence might bo greatly in
creased. As a cabinet ofllccr his op
portunities nro no bettor than these of
Ills associates. lie must establish his
popularity by reaching an elective ol-
ice , and nothing loss than the gover
norship would satisfy him. For these
reasons it is moro than probable that
Mr. Whitney would bo very willing to
accept the democratic nomination for
governor of New York this year.
In this , as in all other matters aiTect-
hig the democratic party at present ,
Lho desire and tnlluoiico of Mr. Cleve
land will dominate. These , it
\\ould seem , ( mould bo fav
orable to Whitney as against
Hill. The latter is supremely anxious
to secure nronamiimlion. With this end
in view he has played the part of a
tlomagoguo in relation to several most
important matters of legislation with
which n largo , and perhaps a controll
ing , clement of tho'New York democ
racy is not In sympathy. lie has also
within the past two months lost no op
portunity to put himself in favor with
Mr. Cleveland by studied laudation.
But It can hardly bo doubled that the
president has no confidence In the pro
fessed friendliness of Hill. Ho knows
that the governor was insiduously and
persistently intriguing against him
until ho discovered the hopeless
ness of his oiTorls , and ho
must understand the utter selfish
ness that prompts his present pro
fessions of unqualified regard nnd loy
alty. Furthermore , Mr. Cleveland
cannot afford to bo magnanimous in the
present contest. In order to bo suc
cessful ho must not lOse a single trick.
The mugwump allies of the democracy
in Now York will in no event support
Hill. The organs of that clement liavo
given timely warning that if ho is rc-
notninatcd they will oppose him. They
would , however , welcome Whitney , as
his nomination would relieve thorn of
the embarrassing necessity of slapping
the democracy with'ono hand while
patting it with the other. Mr. Cleveland -
land undoubtedly has a high estimate of
the voting value of this element ,
nnd it is to bo supposed that
he will desire to have it entirely satis
fied. There would , perhaps , bo less
danger in sacrificing Hill than in allow
ing the Independents to become disaf
fected. The democratic friends of the
governor could doubtless all bo relied
on to fall in line the day of election ,
however vigorously they might kick
before that time , but the mugwumps
need most careful and discreet groom
ing to kcop them in the traces. It
would p lace them In an exceedingly
awkward position if they wore com
pelled to make a fight on the head of
the state democratic tiekot while en
dorsing the national ticket , and the ef
fect could hardly fall to bo a detriment
to the democratic cause.
The situation is an interesting ono to
republicans , and it presents u dilemma
which may give Mr. Cleveland some
annoyance and embarrassment. It
would seem evident , however , that
Secretary Whitney is a moro available
candidate , under existing circum
stances , than Hill , and if ho desires the
nomination ho can probably secure it.
A Trust to lie Sued.
Some two months ago the Attorney
General of Now York heard arguments
on petitions urging him to bring suit
against the sugar trust , and after care
ful dollborationlio has decided that a
primu fycie case against the combina
tion has been established , and that an
action may bo begun to restrain it from
acting as a corporation and performing
corporate acts without authority of law.
It is therefore probable that at an
early day an invcbtigation of the sugar
monopoly will bo commenced in the
courts of Now York , nnd the state laws
relating to corporations bo tested. It
is believed , that the statutes are ample ,
if'faithfully enforced , to protect the people
ple against these combinations. They
arevory plain and explicit in defining the
rights and obligations of corporations ,
nil ol which nro violated when they
practically surrender their franchises
by becoming absorbed in a trust. The
Now York Times thus describes tlio sit
uation :
The corporations which have been merged
Into and absorbed by the sugar trusts have ,
like othcrccorporutions , boon doing business
upon franchises granted by the people.
They asked for certain privileges and
powers , and the people granted their appli
cations under the restrictions which hnvo
been mentioned. They liavo grossly abused
these privileges and powers to the injury of
the people who granted them , and now the
charters should bo recalled or annulled ,
Boos anyone believe that these asso
ciations of sugar refiners could liavo
obtained franchises if they had saidVo :
intend to unite these corporations In a
monopoly organization in order that the people
ple bhull be deprived of the benefits of com
petition and shall bo compelled to pay the
prices we may choose to exact I" Unriucs
tlonably the franchises would have been
withheld. Now that the corporations have
united to oppress the people , these who
granted the franchises should take them
away. They have been robbed by n ring of
corporations which they themselves created ,
and those corporations have clearly broken
the agreement under which they obtained
their privileges. The people reserved the
right to puiiUh them fora violation of that
agreement , and the penalty should now be
exacted , '
A-a wo have heretofore said , the sugar
trust is ono of the most arro
gant nnd insolent of the numer
ous combinations oguitibt the in-
and.wolfaro oMho.pcoplo und it
is of the highest Importance to ascer
tain through the courts whether exist
ing law furnishes the people any pro
tection against its rapacity nnd exac
tions. If this combination shall bo
filiown to bo an unlawful conspiracy ,
injurious to trade or commerce , the re
sult will bo a death blow to all similar
combinations. For this reason tho.i > repoSed -
poSed suit possesses an interest for the
whole country.
ADVICKS from Now York report ave
voy confident fooling among the re
publicans of that state. The organiza
tion of the party is snld never to have
boon bettor , there is entire harmony in
support of the national ticket , and- the
determination is to make the campaign
one of the most vigorous in the history
of the state. On the other Hand there
is reported to bo a good deal of demo
cratic disaffection. There is an ele
ment in the party which has not thus
far been brought to fool kindly toward
Mr. Cleveland , and the implacability ot
which is quite ns likely to increase as
diminish. These nro the strong ad
herents of Hill. Greatly disappointed
at their inability to make him the
presidential candidate , and fearing
now that the influence of Iho ad
ministration may bo thrown against
liis rcnominnlton for governor , for
which they liavo some ronson , they
have anything but a friendly feeling
for the man in the while house. It is
said , also , that there is not complete
unanimity among the mugwumps in
support of Cleveland. Apparently all
features of the political situation in the
pivotal state are of a nature to clicour-
ngo tlio republicans.

A Btnstorly Oration Ijfotcnctl to By n
1'atlcntnnd I'crsplHiiK TlirofiR at
JcfTorsoii Square on the Morn-
Itift of the Fourth.
In deference to the wish of many of those
who listened to the oration of General Van
Wyck on the morning of the Fourth ) and for
the benefit of these who were unable to hear
it , Tun Ucn prints It In full. Upon being in
troduced , the general spoke as follows :
My Follow Citizens ! More tlmn n
century ngo , amid the pains or na
tional childbirth , a republic was born with
scarce 8.000,000 ponul.Mlon mid thirteen
feeble 'colonies streUshlng alone the wild and
rooky Atlantic. The Inland seas only
echoed the screnm of the wild fowl and their
bosom wosrunied by but the frail baric of the
red man , or vexed by the tempest in its wrath.
The fiitlicr of waters mid the turbulent Mis
souri rolled their tribute to the sea , watering
no white man's cabin In their thousands of
miles' meandering. The mighty prairies had
never been touched by the hand of Intelli
gent industry , their Brasses came and
withered , their ( lowers bloomed and decayed ,
us when the great Creator unrolled them
from his omnipotent hand. Kone but tlio
savage had contemplated the grandeur of
the mountains beyond , while summer had
festooned their sides with all the beauty
which foliage nnd ilowors can bestow , and
winter covered their summits with mantels
of purity. Yet from the beginning ) the ages
hud passed them by in solitude.
Then In all the world steam was n hidden
power. Thii lightning was only a flash of the
Almighty coming in mystery unit vengeance.
To-day thirty-eight linked empires stretch
our domain from ocean to ocean , steam per
forming the lauor and lightnlnc whispering
the thoughts of men ; while Within our bor
ders are exhibited nil that brain and hand
huvo achieved for the world.
It waa comparatively easy for the men of
this Rcnoratioti to hazard their property to
save such a country , for wo know its cost ,
its excellence nnd beauty ; to put in peril
oven life to preserve ) the union of states ,
thereby securing frco government.
Wo fought for blessings In possession , for
principles that wore bcnrinjr. clusters of fruit
and sheaves of ripened grain. The wilder
ness Of our struggle was in the heart of the
promised land whoso benefits we hnd enjoyed
so many years. 13ut the fathers lied from
Egyptian cruelties over tholJed sea strug
gled in the wilderness with only soul
Klhnpses of the Canaan beyond. Their con
test was for enjoyments in expectancy. They
wore not surrounded by the well-tillcd Holds
aiid flowering meadows of the promised land.
They foUght for principles , with results an
experiment. Wo fotight for principles and
an inheritance grander than ever enjoyed by
any people.
Columbus on the deck of the Plnta , as the
faint outlines ot' the new world rallied the
sluicing hopes of the sailors , presents n pic-
ttiro the world will ever admire , but nearly
two centuries later Hoblnson nnd the Pll-
crlm band on the deck of the Mayflower , in
tlie rigors of winter and n northern climate ,
make another scene awakening the sahio
feeling of admiration but n deeper
one of thanksgiving and gratitude.
Columbus , in a spirit ol adventure and to re
alize a vision revealed to him , in seeking a
new passage to tllq Indies discovered a new
world. But the pilgrims wouid bravo the
datigers of the deep , and inhospitable win
ter , the merciless savagcAo enjoy freedom
of conscience , ulid hero establish "a church
without n bishop ; a state without a king. "
Nearly two centuries later the same spirit
was manifest among the men gathered at
Philadelphia , July.4 , 1S70 , when they pro
claimed the same doctrlno and pledged to
each other life , fortune and sacred honor in
defense of the declaration that the colonies
should bo frco and' independent , and that all
men were horn equal , th&s declaring the free
dom of the nation and the equality of the
citizen. They felt ,
"Whether In the prison drear , or in the battle's
The fittest place for man to die , Is wlioro ho dies
for man. "
That generation has long since "gone down
to the grave , but they will never bo forgot
ten. Time will give lustre to their names
and deeds. Thus has it over been. The
llery courage of Greece , the stubborn brav
ery of Home , has been sung in every lan
guage. The pass of Thermopylae will out
last the literature of ages. Italy , from the
shores of the Adriatic ; Switzerlandfrom the
peaks of the Alps ; the laud of Bruce , from
her moors and highlands , will bo venerated
where liberty has soldiers and patriotism a
The prominent character of the pilgrims
has manifested itself at every crisis in our
history. After the battle of Lexington an
English offlcor passing among the slam , dis
covered calmly sleeping in death , a musket
by his side , u volunteer , whoso head , white
with the frosts of age , was yet crimsoned
with his own life's blood. Gating and doubt
ing the justice of his country's oialm ,
"Heavens , " ho exclaimed , "when nnd whcro
will a contest end that brings such cham
pions to the Hold 2" Nearly a century later
a representative of the same principle and
courage was seen in the hospital after the
battle of Lookout mountain. A mere boy ,
a stripling in sio nnd years , was fatally
wounded and his life blood blowly ebbing
away. A friend asked him whcro ho was
"Almost tip , " ho said , pointing to the
inouii tain side.
"Hut where wore you hit ? "
"Just at the top , sir. " ho replied , and his
spirit passed in review before the great cap
tain , and in the Bpiritland ho joined this ranks
with the grav-hulrod volunteer of Lexing
ton. As wo look back into the past wo can
scarcely realize consequences so important
from causes so insignificant.
It is said that the echo of a pistol shot in
the Alps will sometimes start from its place
the slumbering avalanche which for years
has been hanging poised upon some
rugged cliff and it goes thundering down the
mountain side , crushing in its path and tour
ing madly in the plains below. So the echo
of the first gun fired on Sumptor dislodircd
from Us position ( the avalanche of slavery
whcro for ages it had rested. Through wars'
carnage it goes crushing everything before
it. In deep furrows its course is marked in
the plain below until melted and wasted its
debris only is loft to show of its horror and
mark the desolation It has produced.
Liberty on this continent will bo preserved
while this great nation bows in humble ad
oration and uncovers at the sun rising of
this glorious anniversary day , venerating the
spirit us well us the symbol , which typifies
all that makes Ufa a joy and benediction. As
citizens of the republic wo have a right to
boast. The great privileges wo enjoy will bo
longer maintained the more we esteem and
value them. Wliun wo cease to bo proud of
the brilliancy of the gem of universal liberty
it will bo only tlnsol and a trinket in our
possession , and bo wrested from our
nerveless hands. It is moot that the old
should como and rouow strength and hope by
recalling all that liberty has done for them ,
and youth should como seeking inspiration to
cherish and defend this boon winch cost so
much , yet is so frail as to bo easily lost. To
know its value wo must not forgot its cost.
To Know its permanency wo must not forgot
ho\v easily it may bo wrenched from our
grasp , The history of all republics attest
' Doth , and shows that this pearl of great pri'-o
never was taken from a people until they had
ceased to appreciate its value ; until they hud
suffered the concentration of great wealth in
the hands of the fp\v , withdrawing from the
many the fruits of honest labor , and with the
wealth thus acquired to profane the temple
of justice , to purchase the halls of legisla
tion , and corrupt oven themselves In the
source and fountain of power.
A free people have novur been manacled
until they themselves have placed in the
hands of an oligarchy the material to forgo
tlio chains and then eravenly extended their
arms to receive the fetters , Taking the ages
past , history generally presents but one page
that of wrong , oppression and suffering. Wo
gaze upon the earth , sea nnd sky , beautiful
to the eye and thought , abundant to provide
for the wants and administer to the happi
ness of each , oven the humblest , of the hun
dreds of millions living to-day and of the
hundreds of thousands of millions entombed.
You need not read the record of all the
years ; only contemplate one day , tills very
day , among the nations of the earth and
realize how little six thousand years have ac-
complUhed ' for the world. Figure * have
not yet been found to couumtc the years that
would bo required nt this ruto ot evolution to
give nil men who arc inado only n little lower
than the nngols n full fruition of what they
should possess , Again gaze upon the earth
and sea and sky , Imagine nil nations , speak
ing lancraagcs Innumerable , with divine
theories of government nnd religion. Sopor-
n'.o from thorn the hamlfjill of rulers nnd the
ollgarchlOS who rule the rulers , nnd that vast
multitude , without ft dt ? entinff voice , would
raise one piteous cry that nil men shsuhl n-
Joy what the God 01 creation intended free
dom of thought , of worship , and of govern
ment ; freedom from extortion , from rob
bery : the right of every man to
the fruits of his labor. Yet the
cry of this vast multitude goes
unheeded ! wrongs and injustice continue.
Accumulation of power nnd wealth tyran
nise to-day as In the early dawn of history ,
nnd the masses arc still laboring for tlio few.
Tlio mystery of the problem increases with
passing years how the masses over consent
to bo enslaved no matter the particular
character of the despot or the form of the
despotism. The subjection by a foreign
conqueror was no more galling than that lu-
lllctcd by the voice of the people of Israel
when they demanded n king to rule over
them. You remember , before the whistle of
the locomotive was hoard on these treeless
plains , when , breasting the strong current
of the Missouri , you would watch some land
mark oit the shore to observe the progress of
the sturdy stoamcr. So lot Us , while breast
ing the waves impeding our national pro
gress , sight landmarks In the world's history
to note our udvanco.
Strom * men jostlu each other In the ranks
of toll , begging the privilege to work for
wages barely suniclent to sustain wife and
children ; miners dragging out existence
by delving under the earth's surface ;
educated women In frco , Christian America
wearing tliolr lives away , stitching heart
throbs Into shirts , receiving for the making ,
pittance of two or throe cents each. How
much improved In condition over these who
raised corn In Egypt , or tended flocks for the
patriarchs -1,000 years ngojover the plebeians
on the banks of tlio Tiber or the llshcrm an
whom Christ found on the shore * of Gallilca J
The world ovolutos slowly. Take an early
landmark , the Jewish commonwealth. Note
the 4,000 years between , and wo wonder that
they enjoyed so much , or wo so little'and
when Abraham loft his homo In Babylonia
nnd journeyed to the west to the wilds of
Palestine , where ho could enjoy political nnd
religious freedom : when , as afterwards did
the pilgrims the In "tho
on Mnyilowor , con
gregation of Israel , " select rulers by suf
frage of the people , with schools like our
common or parochial schools , with laws to
prevent oppression or Usury , uud to protect
the poor and weak. With u homestead law
Riving to each family twenty nnd one-half
acres of land , Which could not bo alienated ,
and if sold by creditors would at the fiftieth
year , the jubilee year bo restored to the or
iginal owner or his heirs. Apparently , an
early exhibition of communism. Evolu
tion from the ttmo of , the Israe
lite has been slow , Indeed. Cen
turies later Greece deposed her kings , as-
suined nn oligarchy , afterwards a republic.
Five hundred years before Christ she was
great in refinement , in literature , In art the
founder of European civilization. Greece ,
\vlth a territory no larger than Nebraska ,
wilh brilliancy nnd grandeur never excelled ,
ovolutcd back into anarchy. So Cartilage ,
whoso founders , driven froui , were the
puritans , tlio pilgrims of the cast , whoso
names still adorn the world , from her dizzy
height ovolutcd into decay and death.
Home , so long the mistress of the world , dethroned -
throned her kings , destroyed pligarcy , nnd
bacahio n collossal republic , illustrious in
arms , arts and civilization. Following others
she suffered the few to obtain the wealth and
the poor to bo dependent. The Inevitable re
sult followed , mid she perished in the same
gulf where other republics \voro buried , and
again evolution wont backwards. Do you
say that nations , like individuals , must decay -
cay and perish ? Certainly. But the world
has cvoluted only n short distance beyond the
Isruclltish commonwealth , Carthage , Greece
nnd Home.
This day manifests thankfulness for all
wo enjoy , but standing now near the
mountain-top of her creatncss , shall
wo not leai'n from the lesson of the ages ?
Homo had no homestead law like the Jews ,
but in her early days a decree was rendered
that no man should own to exceed 500 acres ,
though never repealed , this became a dead
letter because the oligarchy despised and
ignored It , and bought up the estates of small
landed proprietors , placing them under cul
tivation by slaves or using them for parks
and ornamental grounds. In old Homo some
patriots warned the masses , but the Gracchi
had few influential sympathizers and the
people had become powerless. True , her
citizens were cultured in Greek philosophy ,
in history , poetry and the arts , but the spurn
of Independence had perished in the hearts of
her people , and the spiritof freedom had been
exorcised before Cca.sar crossed thoUubicon.
We are now faoo to face with grave prob
lems. Shall wo learn the lesson of four
thousand years to our benefit or bandage our
eyes and rush madly into the abyss where
republics are entombed. True , the teach
ings of Christ have come between the past
and now , but the encroachments of power
and the agrcssions of wealth are the same as
thon. Wo must contend with the
element of corporate , exacting ,
law defying power which nOver
vexed the soul of the Israelites , or the
ancient republics. This octopus must bo
grappled by our time. To secure and con
tinue illimitable wealth , corporations must
oxeroiso absolute power , which they do by
directing state legislatures and congress , the
executive departments , and too frequently
the courts. They are already entrenched ,
and unless driven out by the intelligence and
firmness of the people the property of the na
tionand in time its liberties , will bo assailed ,
Monopoly sympathizers will affect much horror
ror at these plain truths. You remember
when Samuel remonstrated with the Jews
for demanding a king. They heeded not , but
reviled him. When Demosthenes in his phil-
lipics attempted to < arouse the Athen
ians to their danger , some lawyers
employed by tlio robbers denounced
him as a disturber of tlio peace of Athens.
For thousands of years , in all forms of gov
ernment , under all skies , with all theories
of religion , the contest has been waged bo-
twccn despotism and freedom , between cap
ital and labor. Money has been com
mand of the tyrant. Even in republics
wealth has created an aristocracy , and aris
tocracy in the end destroyed liberty. Tlio
struggle ever has with the millions gone before -
fore , and to-day , boon , to secure fair com
pensation fpr honest toil always a struggle
for bread. The spirit of evil was ever fruit
ful in resources , in inventions. When the
Good Ono planted a rose , a blade of grass , a
stalk of grain , near by was planted a thorn ,
a noxious weed and a poisoned flower. So in
government and society the rulers liavo boon
careful that liberty and labor should bo re
stricted in its benefits to ttio strugglers ,
Wo boast of free government , n generous
civilization , a beneficent religion , yet it is
the same old story evil absorbing and coun
terbalancing the good , by shaping and con
trolling legislation ; failing in that , to openly
defy or shrewdly avoid laws fonts restraint.
Corporate power , organized wealth , specially
protected interests , when laws cannot
satisfy their greed , nssumo the dic
tatorship , organize pretended trusts and arbi
trarily control the avenues of commerce , the
arteries of travel ; and of the necessaries of
life dictate the price to bo paid the pro
ducer and the cost to the consumer , so that
the extremes arein a measure pauperized ,
while the trusts , by a power greater and
above law , from the labor of others absorb
millions for themselves. Among the an
cients n similar offense was punished with
death. In a republic , where the citizen is
amused by being told on the Fourth of July
that ho is a sovorign , a prominent senator on
the floor of the United States senate pro
claimed that any power or means devised to
check such villains would bo entitled to a
crumb of alary.
There is u remedy , if labor in all the hives
of Industry , in shops , in mines , on the farm ,
on nil the lines of commerce by water arid
ral1 , would do us the oppressed do organize ,
puu in actuality that soverignty which is too
oitcn only theory ; make their power felt ,
not lu violence , but at the ballot box and In
the creation and afterwards the enforce
ment of Just laws. Bo assured there
is the sleeping giant , but the giant is
as powerless as the pigmy if ho never arises
from his ( .lumbers. Sou to it that when
aroused he is not guided and controlled by
the Injustice which ho seeks to suppress.
Many begin to realize that partisanship is not
always patriotism. Sometimes party organi
zation may exist when the spirit which
created ceases to animate it. The world
learns this lesson now and then with grcut
intervals between.
What n mockery 1 Yet it has not been the
only Instance where Hery zeal or Intolerance
of opinion , sometimes willed religion , some
times polities , was manifested us illustrated ;
when the cross was appealed to and millions
Of men , with millions of treasure , carried on
the crusades to res'uuo the holy city and the
birthpluco auti death sccac of tut-Saviour
from the touch of the Saracen , not' realizing
that it mattered not if the infidel had posses
sion of the empty tomb where the Saviour
hnd lain and from which Ho had ascended ,
or even of the wooden cross on which Ho had
suffered crucifixion and whence was the
costly trnnsllgurntion. Mankind hnd not
learned tlmt it was the risen , living Christ
they were to follow , nnd emulate oaoh other
In the good deeds Ho practiced and in obey
ing the new comtmfndment Ho gave , to love
one another , rather than jnurdor women nnd
children at the mouth , of "nn empty sepulchre
or at the foot of Cnlvnry when no brightness
shone from its summit.
Men often exhibit n fiery , meaningless de
votion to nn organization which once typillcd
a living principle , after the principle had
been victorious and broken the bands which
held it , and ascended In the full fruition of
realization. Our fathers know that the
mother country , with all the prcntonsos of
love nnd care to the colonies , hnd grown
oppressive , and to save themselves from un
just taxation hurled the tea in Boston har
bor nnd defied n power they had heretofore
cheerfully obeyed , Their descendants to
day know that Injustice is laying its heavy
hand Upon them , demanding something of
the same determination , not in snurillco nnd
blood , but In honest effort In the ovcro'o ' of
these rights accorded to the citizen , some
times called sovereign. This generation
must show manly , Intelligent courage , or the
next may bo compelled to a sterner struggle.
The world changes by slow stages , tyranny
antt greed do not willingly recognize the
rights of the massses. Now , as In the ngos
past , the weak the toilers the hum
ble , secure their rights from the
fears of these who would play despot.
Nations recognize principles of Justice only
because compelled to. and not , ns In the ease
of England with India and Egypt , because
of the brotherhood of iiinn or the fatherhood
of God. Hence war ship * , forts , enlarged
cannon , Improved projectiles nnd Increased
power of destructives. The poet wrote
stern facts , and ho was neither demagogue
nor crank when ho wrote :
Truth forever on tlio scntlold ,
Wrong forever on the throne.
Hut Dint scatrold sways the future ,
And , behind tha dim unknown ,

Keeping watch above His own.
To show the steady growth nnd grasping
reach of the Influences threatening the pros
perity of the individual , you will certainly
pardon a moment , as I am satisfied tlio dis
tinguished author , whoso writings nonrly
twenty years ngo stated stern facts and made
prophecies which history has realized , will
doubtless feel n natural pride that his writ
ings are so abundantly Justified that they
can bo read in tlio heart of the continent
with the approbation of all citizens of the re
public. IIu detailed in his chapter
on Erie what ho called the finan
cial and political robbery of the people
by the purchase of courts and corruption of
legislatures , nnd detailed how Vnmlurbilt
introduced "Cicsarism into corporate llfo , "
and "when the Judges had degraded them
selves in degrading their order , ntid made
the ermine of the supreme Justice scarcely
more Imposing than the motley of the clown ,
nnd hud reduced America ot the nineteenth
century to the level of Franco of the six
teenth century. " That modern society has
created a class of artificial beings who bid
fair soon to bo masters of their creators ; "
* * "These bodies are the creatures of
single states , but in Now York , In Pennsyl
vania , in Maryland , in New Jersey , and not
in these states alone , they are already estab
lishing despottcisms which no spasmodic pop
ular effort will bo able to shako off. " * * *
"Tho system of corporate llfo and corporate
power as applied to industrial development
is yet in its infancy. It tends always to de
velopment , always to consolidation. It is
ever grasping now powers or industriously
oxereislng covert influences. " * * "A
very few years more nnd wo shall see cor
porations as much exceeding the Erie and
the New York Central in both ability and
will for corruption , as they will cxcecit their
roads in wealth and in length of iron track.
Wo shall sco these great corporations
spanning the continent from ocean
to ocean. Already the disconnected
members of these future leviathans
have built up states in the wilderness and
chosen their attorneys , and senators of the
United States. " * * * "Tho public cor
ruption is the foundation on which corpora
tions always depend for their political power.
There Is a natural tendency to coalition be
tween them and the lowest strata of political
intelligence and morality ; for their agents
must obey , not question. They exnctsuccess
nnd do not cultivate political morality. The
lobby thrives ns political virtue decays. The
ring is their symbol of power and the ring is
the natural enemy of political purity nnd iu-
depandcnco. "
In his chapter on "Stock Watering" ho
says : "Every experiment which tlio mind of
man can devise has been brought into play
to secure to the capitalist the laix'cst possible
profit with the least possible risk. The
Pacific railroad furnishes a fine example of
all these ingenious devices. * * At the
same time the iocess of construction
afforded a curious example of the methods
through which fictitious evidences of value
c < m bo piled upon each other. "
"The length of the road was 1,019 miles ;
cost , estimated , was $10,000,000. Yet a stoulc
capital alone was authorized of ? 100,000,000.
No dependence was placed upon this as n
means of raising money. It was only
a debt to be imposed , if possible , on
the future business of ithcgj country.
At the close of 18TO the stock and ( font amount
ed to $210,000.000. Thus the last results of Van
dcrbilt's genius have been surpassed at the
very outset of this enterprise. Tlio Imp from
Chit-ago to Now York represents now but
$00,000 to the mile as the resultof many years
of inflation , while the line between Omaha
nnd Sacramento betrlns llfo with the cost of
SUfi.OOO per mile. It would bo useless to at
tempt to estimate the weight of the burden
imposed through these means upon material
development. "
1 would not presume to intrude my own
sentiments on this occasion , but I trust it
willboconsidered duo to patriotism to read
tlio sentiments from a conservative uud dis
tinguished descendant of revolutionary an
cestors , themselves distinguished , and at this
time president of the Union Pa
cific railroad , Charles Francis Adonis.
Those earnest and eloquent words of
Adams were Bturtllngly true when written ,
but past events have pointed nnd emphasized
tlio wonderful revelations ho then made.Vo
are again in view of the danger upon us , tlio
moro dangerous because there seems no well
credited effort to overcome if , but the ma
chinery of party and government is to-duv ,
us twenty years ago , too often hcd ) in the
grasp of the very influences ho BO ' unspar
ingly condemned.
Jt is another admonition that eternal vigi-
lauco is not only the price of liberty , but
honest government , That wo are a republic
will not of Itself uxemut us from the injus
tice of power or the avarice unit exaction of
wealth. Continuous and llfo struggles caa
alone preserve from the miseries attending
tlio laws , when Is heard the same sad story
of life , the toiling , down-trodden millions ,
the proud , haughty , despotic few. Hapid as
1ms been the advance of the last century , yet
in most nations how pliable is tlio cry of the
masses struggling for broad ,
"for men must work and women must weep ,
There is llttlo to earn and many to kcop. "
The sons of toil from other lands souk rof-
URO in our own because hero they can pro
cure meat as well as broad. This was our
boast , our prido. yet what a sad commentary
of the world's history that one of tlio proud
est boasts of America is that bv daily effort
meat as well as bread would bo the reward.
This makes the difference between ours mid
the workingmen of the old world. In a land
of abundance , whore it should bo a crlmo to
allow oven one to buffer , to see strong men
with iron muscles and sinews of htool tolling
through the long , weary day , yet barely se
curing enough to sustain wife and children
whom ho cherishes and loves with the same
fond devotion as the prince In ills palace , Is
as much of a burden us should bo imposed.
But how fearful when strong men cannot
find remunerative employment , to give even
crumbs to their chllurun and they become
beggars on the street or paupers in the aluib-
housennd they are feeling
"That men must work and women must weep ,
The sooner 'tis over the sooner to Bleep. "
What crimes Jiavo society and government
committed against man I Yet wo uro now be
ginning to meet some of the distressing con
ditions of the old world.with labor depressed
and strong men seeking for broad.
Our existence lias been n warning to all
the despotisms of the earth , that not too
rudely must the rights of man bo trampled
upon. Had the rebellion torn the union in
twain and rent the starry banner so that this
day as a union the republic hud ceased ,
where had been the hopes for the pilgrims
of liberty throughout the civiliiod world )
Every yuar the line of veterans pf the
union army , who saved the nation's life , and
wo trust made the union perpetual , becomes
smaller. The bowed form , the falturing
etep , the whitened locks and dimmed eyes
too plainly admonish that tlio goal of life's
Jouruey i uot far way , and having 0 >
charged life's duties grnnaly become heroes
whom the nation delights to honor nnd nra
enshrined in the affection * nnd memory of n
Kreatftil people. May their last clnj s be of
peace , but , what Is ot greater benefit ( o
them , may their last days through , not
the generosity , but the Justice , simple Jus
tice of nn honest government , boot plenty.
Only then will the promises made at tlio out
set of the war bo redeemed. Congress
pledged the last man and the last dollar to
subdue the rebellion. The last man will
soon bo reached , . but millions before the
last dollar is firmly held in the treasury from

Thomas , Mead , Hancock , Hooker" . Lo < ran ,
Grant , and nearly nil the great generals ,
have crossed to the other side , whore n ma
jority of that rand army , with Lincoln at
the head , have answered the roll
call. Even now , ouo of the
noblest of earth's chloftians Sheridan ,
is on the border laud of the present and fu
ture. On the black horse nt Winchester ho
plucked victory from the Jaws ot defeat.
Now the unconquerable rider on the pale
horse is demanding the surrender of the
great soldier. Ho is disputing the ground
with one who claims all ns his own , and ral
lying his shattered forces ho boldly goes
forth nnd asks the sea for breath , from the
north wind and the south wind energy to Ills
liopo and strength to his wasting body.
As a nation wo liavo never been conquered
on tlio Hold. Over foreign enemies aud do
mestic foes wo have always triumphed. Now
our prowess siwaks In quiet tones to the op
presser , that ho must respect to eomo extent
the rights of men. .
Tlio moral power of this republic 1ms
weakened the exactions of tyranny nnd light
cnfid the burdens of the masses , even in
despotic countries. From our high vantage
ground wo have stretched forth our mighty
arm aud beckoned the nations of the olil
world to como up higher , mid Irrcslstably
they moved upon a higher piano. Witness
the liberal Ideas prevailing in Franco , Aus
tria nnd Germany.
The mother country , yielding to tlio teach
ings of her once rebellious offspring , hnvo
extended from time to time the right of suf
frage , until men on English soil nro more
than mere howors'of wood nnd drawers of
water. It is auspicious of tlio time when
homo rule should bo established in Ireland ,
nnd the dying prnyer of Emmet ho realized ,
"When my country shall take her stand
among the nations of the earth , then , and
not till then , lot my epitaph ho written. "
Even now the Russian soldier ns ho dreams
of home , and the Turk ns ho bends in wor
ship towards the rising sun and hears Iho
tinkling of the minaret bells , has vision ot
tlio far away land in the western world
whcro liberty is moro than nnnmo and whore
the Individuality of man is not lost in the
throne. So we have not lived and struggled
in Vain. Let us bo true to the faith within
us , which teaches that universal liberty must
in the end bo the birthright of all people.
The star which guides and is visible to ua ,
may not bo seen by other nations.Vo
sco it ns did Napoleon when ho
unrolled the map of his Italian
campaign nnd showed to his unolo
who doubted the scheme , nnd said ,
"Dreams. " Hushing to the window , looking
into the sky , and pointing upward , ho said
"Do you sco that star ! " "No , " was the re
sponse. " 1 do , " said Napoleon. Faith In his
star led him to the height of human nnib
tion. So faitli in the star of our destiny lias
placed us In the forefront of the nations , and
our mission will not bo completed until man
shall everywhere bo disenthralled ; when
thrones and crowns shall crumble in the dust ,
nnd when governments shall exist only by
consent of the governed.
May the long line of coming generations al
ways keep sacred the flowery banner nnd
allow no hand to touch it in scorn , or rudely
tear apart its folds May they always feel as
wo do this day :
" 'Tls the flag of America , it floats o'or the

'Tls the fulrc t unfurled on the land or the

Hut though brightest history and matchless In
'Tls the herald ot moroy as well as of might.

There were G.OOO people in the High Scjiool
grounds Wednesday night to witness tlio dis
play of Jlro works , witli which il was intended
to close the day. A temporary stand had boon
erected , and from these the works were
exploded. Ono of the explosions was ncei-
dental , and a hundred dollars worth of
fireworks went off witflout much regularity ,
but with n great deal of intensity , causing a

The Sclnvenlnpcr Treatment for Olic-
slty in Tills Country.
The system of Professor Ernst Schwon-
ingcr for the treatment of obusity ,
which was introduced here about two
yours ago , says the Now York Sun , has
by this time been sufficiently tested to
demonstrate that anybody who will do-
tcrminedly follow the rofjiinen pre
scribed by it can reduce his llcfeh tonny
rosonablo degree desired , it being un
derstood of courao that his physical
condition is not sucli by ronson of incur
able heart or kidney disease as to make
reduction perilous. And there if. ouo
thing about it tlmt is hard to got used
to. That is the absolute prohibition ol
all liquids during meals and for an hout
before and nn hour after each meal. It
docs not scorn so dilllcult to do without
fluids to wash down one's food until it ia
tried , nnd the iron pressure of habit in
sipping and even gulping water , win o ,
milk , tea or colTeo while outing is ronl-
izod. Tlio very fact of prohibition
scorns to niuko ono moro intensely
thirsty , and the juiciest food talcos on
the astringent dryness of chowcd pome
granate rind. Of course , ono becomes
accustomed to it after luyhilo , eventu
ally does not fool any desire for Liquids
at the prohibited times , and even Jimls
loss disposition to drink at any tiino
than ho over had bolero. Then his re
ward comes , not only in the reduction
of llobh , hut in a bin-prising diminution
of the nuisance of porsjii ration , which in
the misery of all fat men.
It must not bo supposed that this
shutting off of liquids in the whole of
the treatment , though it appears to bo
the most important requirement. That
ranking next to it is that ono must not
gorpro with food , especially food in
which Biigar and starch uro largely
component parts.

npoolal dispatches told now ho re
stricted hiniholf in eating to a light
breakfast and substantial dinner , with
no liquids at meals , and only a single
glass of wlno daily , taken just before
retiring. Ono experiment with UIQ
bogus system of throe pints of water before -
fore lircukfuut by HlBinarck would
doubtless afford Germany another flrfit-
ulass funeral.
