To attempt to patch up an apparent
harmony between those who are not in
sympathy with democratic purposes Is not
only a waste of time, but would prove
disastrous The men who deserted the
psrty In 1896 may be' divided Into two
classes those who left because they under
stood the Issue presented snd those who
left becsuse they did not understand the
real nature of the contest. Until the
former are completely changed in their
sympathies they cannot return to the party
without Injuring It. The latter will be
reconciled to the party when they them
selves become aware of the real character
of the life and death struggle now being
waged between plutocracy and democracy.
I say plutocracy because the aristocracy
of today is one of wealth rather than of
birth and It Includes not only those who
have been alienated from the common peo
ple by the possession of great Wealth, but
inose wno, aiinougn wunoui weaun,
pander to it and measure all things by a
money standard. Organised wealth has
become so potent In governmental affairs
that soms even now despair of applying any
effective remedy. But such underestimate
the patriotism of the people and the
strength of the public conscience. The
people have a remedy within their power
namely, the ballot and with it they can
and will right every wrong and remedy
every grievance. 1
lasaes Ara Yet Uncertain.-

issues ws may have to meet; we can only
determine to meet them in a democratic
spirit, to apply to them democratic prin
ciples and to take the people's aide always.
in vsn tne paramount issue was tarinT re
form, and the democratic party boldly as
serted Its demand for a tariff for revenue
only. It fought the campaign, and It won,
but Its majority was so narrow that a few
senators, dlsloysl to the 'party on this sub
ject, defeated the verdict of the peop',
rendered at the polls. But the failure of
the party to do all that It promised would
not have been so disastrous but for the
fact thst the Wilson bill, unsatisfactory
as It was to tariff reformsrg, had to bear
the sins of a republican financial system
which was supported by our admlnlstritlon
against the protest of an overwhelming
majority of the voters of the psrty. The
defeat of 1894 wa more disastrous than
any that the party has experienced slnco,
and it was due to the fact that the admin
istration deserted the people on the money
?uestlon. In SH the money question .had
orged to the front, made psramount not
by the action of the majority of the demo
cratic party, but by the attempt of a
minority of the party to aid the republican
party to chain the country to an appre
ciating dollar. Without abandoning Its
position on the tariff question, the party
met this Issue and took ths side of the
people. In spits of the desertion of many
formerly conapicuous In Its councils,- the
democratic party polled 1.000.AOO more votes
then It had ever-polled before, and would
have won but for the indefensible methods
of the republican party, whose leaders
held sll the protectionist republicans by
declaring the tariff Issue to be paramount,
mollified the wrath of most of the free
silver republicans by promising Interna
tional bimetallism, and won all the advo
cates of the gold standard by revealing to
them the secret purpose of the .party to
adopt a European financial system. But
even then we would hsve won but for the
