Quiet Way i Are Best.
What's the use of worry, - .
And breaking up their rest?
When everyone is teaching us,
Preaching and beseeching us,
To settle dowu and end the fuss,
For quiet ways are best,

Hweet fraerance from each brimmimr
The gentle zephyrs gather up.
There'se ruin in the tempest's path;
There's i ui i in ilu voice of wrath;

Who early leant to dominate
Them -el vei. their violence abate,
Aud prove, by their serene1 estate,
That quiet ways are best.
Nothing's gained by Worrying,
With fret ing aud with flurrying
The temper's often lost;
And in pursuit of some small prize
We rush ahead aud are not wi.se,
And find the unwanted exercise
A fearful price has cost.
,Tis better far to join the throng
That do their duty right along;
lie! tic taut they to raise a fuss,
Or make themselves ridiculous
Calm and serene in heart and nerve,
Their strength is always in reserve,
And nobly stands each test;
And every day and all about(
By scenes within and scenes without,
We can discern, with ne'er a doubt .
That quiet ways are best.

should jealously guard an I protect its
interest and fair f iuiP, and that all
the intelligence with which they are
endowed should be devoted to un nn
derstanding of its needs and the pro
motion of its welfare.
These are the elements of Ameri
can citizenship, and these aie the con
ditions upon which our free institu
tions were ititrusted to our people, iu
full reliance, at the beginning and for
all time to come, uasii American man
hood, consecrated by the highest and
A country broad and new to be sub
dued to the purposes of mans existence,
and promising vast and independent
resources, and a people intelligently
understanding the value of a free na
tion and holding fast to an intense af
fection for its history and its heroes,
have had much to do with moulding
our American character aud giving it
hardihood and vigor. Hut it should
never be forgottou that the influence
.vhich, more than all other things, has
made our people safe depositories of
governmental power, and which has
furnished the surest guaranty of the
strength and perpetuity of the Repub
lic, has its source in tha American
home. Here our patriotism is born
and entwines itself with the growth of
filial love, and here Our children are
taught the story of our freedom and
independence. Hut uliove all, here in
the bracing and wholes ime atmos
phere of uncomplaining frugality aud
economy, the mental and moral attrib
1 1 Us of our people have been firmly
kuit and invigorated. Never could it
be said of a ty country so truly as of
ours, that the permanency of its insti
tutions depends upon its homes.
I have spoken of frugality and econ
omy as important factors in American
ife. I hud no fault with the accum
ulation of wealth, and am glad to see
eaergy and enterprise receive their fair
reward, but I believe that our gov
ernment in its natural integrity, is ex-
ictly suited to a frugal and economical
leople; and I believe it is safest in the
lands of those who have b?en made
strong and sslf-reliant in their citizen
ship, by self-ieuial and by the sur-
ouudiug of an enforced economy.
Thr ft aud careful watchfulness of ex-
dtditure among the people tend to se
en, e a thrifty government; and cheap
and careful living on the part of indi
viduals ought to enforce economy in
the public expenditures.
When, therefore, men in high place?
of trust, charged with the responsibili
ty of making and executing our laws,
not only co idemii but flippantly deride
heapuess an 1 economy within the
homes !of our people, and when the
expenditures of the government are
reckless and wasteful, we may be sure
that something is wrong with us, and
that a condition exists which calls for
vigorous and resentful defense of
Americanism, by every man worthyto'
be called an American citizen.
Upon the question of cheapness and
economy, wnetiier it. relates to inuivin-
ualsor to the ope.-ators of the govern-
mei t, the Democratic party true to its
creed and to its traditions, will unal
terably remain attached to our plain
an4 frugal people. They art especially
entitled to the watchful care and pro
tection of t heir govern meirt ; and t hen
thev are borne down with the burden
renter than they can Ijear, and made
the object of scorn by hard taskmuk-
ers. we will not leave their side. As
Hit great German reformer insisting
upon his reliuiouV conviction, in the
presence of his accusers exclaimed, "I
an do nautrht else. Here I stand.
God help me," so, however much oth
ers mav mock and deride cheapness
i in the noor ami fruirni men and wo-
men of our Ian3, we will stand -fort I

answer these question-. Step by step
a yast number of our people had been

or party. 1 hey hart heen tilled with
hate and sectional prejudice; they had
been cajoled with misrepresentations
and false promises; they hail been cor
rupted with money and by appeals t
their selfishness. All these things led
up to their final betrayal to satisfy the
demands of those who had supplied tiie
fund for their corruption.
This lietrayal was palpable; aud it
was impossible to deny or conceal the
fact that the preteude I relief tendered
to the people in fulfilment of a prom
ise to lighten the burdens of their life,
made by 4 lie party entrusted with the
government, was but a scheme to pay
m . m .
the debts incurred by the purchase of
success, while it further increased the
mpoverishment of the masses.
The people were at last aroused and
demanded an explanation. They hal
been taught for one hundred years that
I "1 i "I I . . .
i i the aistriuution ot benefits their
government should be administered
with equality and justice. Thy had
learned that wealth was not indispen
sable to respectability aud that it did
not entitle its possessors to especial
irovern mental favors. Hum hie men
with scanty incomes had been encour
aged by the influence and the spirit of
our institutions, to practice f. ugality
to the end that they might enjoy to
the utmost the rewards of their toil.
The influence of the American home
was still about them. In their sim
plicity they knw nothing of a new
dispensation which made cheapness
disreputable, aud they sti;l love the
cheap coats of. Linca In and Garfield,
anil hundreds of their countrymen
whom they held in veiieatiou. And
thus the unsophisticated Americans,
unconscious of their wrong doing, de
manded the redemption of party pled
ges and clamoring of cheapness, in or
der that they might provide the neces
saries and comforts of life ftr them
selves and their families at the lowest

Ths Democratic - Leaders are How at
There has lieen a sudden sessation all
along the line of candidates for the
Democratic speakership, aud where a
day or two ago a member need have
only served one or two terms to avow
himself a candidate, there is now a
dead silence. A gentleman who is
well posted on Democratic poli
tics said today that there wouaf now
probably lie no more candidate talk
for softie time. It is generally oeliev
ed that the Speakership of the Fiftv
second House will hi awarded to some
one particular Democrat whom the
party leaders deem the most available
man. There are now already a dozen
candidates, from Mr. Mills dowirto
Lckwood, but it is possible that none
of t hem will finally preside.
Mr. Garman, who is unquestionably
the leader of the Democratic party, is
now in 1 New York, and it is already
shrewdly suspected that is there fir
the purpose of consulting other prom
inent Democrats as to the campaign to
be followed by the Democratic House.
He sees, as does every one, J hat ou the
record made by that House the lines of
presidenti d battle of 'J2 must- lie
fought, and, as the policy of the House
lies entirely iu the hands of its Speak
er, We is determined, along with other
party lea !ers who themselves are not
in the speakership race, to place the
party House in the hands of some cool,
conservative Democrat. The framing
of the rules of the House and the ap
poiuth.eat of ies committees depend, to
the greatest degree, on the Speaker,
and a hot-headed, irritable, Speaker
would, m the opiuiHii
Gorman arid his associates
It has also bean s lid that the Speak
er of the House, whosoever he may be
will be the Dmoeyafic party's candid
date for the vice presidency, and that,
therefore, in addition to his qualities
as a presiding officer, he must possess
availabilities as vice presidential tin -ber.
The programme it is understood
will be to select in advance the Speaker,
the chairman of the Ways and Means
and of the Election Couiuiitt.ee, and to
arrange as far as possible, an equitable
and practical geographical distribution
of all the officers or the House. So
far, the programme. Just how far it
can be carried out renin ins to be seen;
tar it is a very grave question whether
any of the present candidates for the
various offices will consent to have
themselves disposed, at the will of two
or -three leaders, like so many pawns
on a chess board. Baltimore Ameri
