trial to conclusively demonstrate the im

The declaration of the platform touch
ing foreign immigration is one of ieculiar
importance at this time, when our own
laboring people are in such distress. I
am in hearty sympathy with th3 present
legislation restricting foreign immigra
tion and favor such extension of the laws
as will secure the United States from in
vasion by tho debased and criminal classes
of the old world.
The soldiers and sailors of the union
should neither be neglected nor forgotten.
The government which they served so well
must not make their lives or condition
harder by treating them as suppliants for
relief in old age or distress, nor regard
with disdain or contempt the earnest in
terest one comrade naturally manifested
in the welfare of another.
The declaration of the Republican plat

They are to be of the same weight and
fineness; they are to bear the same stamp
of the government. Why would they not
be of the same value:-1 I answer: The
silver dollars now in use were coined on
account of the government, and not for
private account or gain, and the govern
ment has solemnly agreed to keep them
as good as the best dollars we have. The
government bought the silver bullion at
its market value and coined it into silver
dollars. Having exclusive control of the

one which it does not possess. It lacks the
essential virtue of it-creation the raising
of revenue sutlicient to supply the needs
of the government. It has at no time pro
vided enough revenue for such needs, but
it has caused a cons ant deficiency in the

There would be no obligation resting upon
the government to do it, and if there were
it would be powerless to do it. The simple
truth is we would be driven to a silver
monometalism. These dollars, therefore,
would stand upon their real value.
Until international agreement is had it
is the plain duty of the United States to
maintain the gold standard. It is the
recognized and sole standard of the great
commercial nations of the world, with
which we trade more largely than any
