He preached prosperity and said In part:
"Prosperity Is the first thing that we
all should seek, because It means happi

have our mills running to the full, and
yet there may be something of corrup.

law through trusts and combinations and
discriminations of railways that make
that prosperity one that really doe no
help us In tlie end.
"But, omitting that, and assuming that
everybody Is obeying the law and w
are trying to make them obey th law
it I prosperity and business that wa
should look to. and the agitation that
creates a lack ot confidence among those
who have capital Invested 1 not for the
geod of the people. Therefore, what we
want Ir, as far as we fun. to have the
quiet confidence that makes everybody
look after his own business and put a
much money In It as he can, and than
job will be many, wage wilt go up, we
will all hav money to buy shoe for our
children and those ot us that lack com
fort can enjoy It. )
"What I would press on you. and what
I would press on myself, Is th necessity
for .Inspiring confidence in our govern

tlvat hostility between classes, between
persons similarly situated, but we should
11 have confidence In each other because
w ara in tbe same boat. If w hare

that gets tbe best out of It. When we
