In fact, the period ! nai bten more like one of war than! peace. It is interesting now t iv back over our man? conflicts T . first ssUctfd as& candidate by the most influential people of the city; men who had large holdings in street railway companies, in gas compa nies, those who held positions on va rious boards of the city, prominent merchants, bankers and professional men, all united in ren destine me to become a candidate. I discovered very soon after my election that the railroads were paying les3 than their share of taxes. I said so. and th railroad support immediately left me. I discovered that the gas companies were charging exorbitant rates. I said so. and the owners of the stock turned their back3 upon me. I iounu tne bankers speculating in the city funds. I denounced the practice and they denounced me as an unsafe man. I attacked the old turnpike roads, and their owners called me an anarchist. In short, I found that every time 1 attempted to correct an abuse 1 lost a large and influential class of supporters. I found many of the members of boards interested in one way or the other in the supplies furnished to the city, and when I called attention to the fact the boards became intensely hostile. OFFENDED INFLUENTIAL CLASSES. In short, one by one, the influen tial classes of the city seemed to take offense. I was four times elected mayor, but in each campaign was made painfully aware ot the loss of old friends, although my majorities gradually crept up from about 1,500 to something more than 10,000. 1 was honored by the same constituency when elected governor, by a major ity of more than 18.000. It is something to be proud of that when the influential classes turned their back upon me the common peo pie of the city, who were too poor to own axes to grind and who were only interested in the growtn and prog ress of the municipality, always stood by me and supported me in ev ery forward step. When you con sider this experience you will not be surprised that I have come to lean upon the common people as the real foundation upon which good govern ment must rest. Among those who have opposed the different reforms introduced are men who would be supposed to be above temptation and who are uni versally regarded a? the very highest types of citizens. They occupy high places in commercial life, borne or them are judges; some of them are Senators and members of legislative bodice; some are great bankers; some are merchant princes. All of them eminently respectable; yet, strange as it may appear, their opposition has in almost every instance resulted from their interest in public charters and monopolies, which had been pro cured bv questionable methods. Against the influence of such men it has been absolutely necessary to ap peal to the masses to prevent the citv from beiner tied hand and foot and plundered without mercy. I have come to agree witn tne eel ebrated Enclish divine who said: ''In everv country the nation is in tne cottage, and if the light of your leg islation does not sbme mere, your statesmanship is a failure and your system is a mistake. ' Indeed, every and engage the rest of the week in bribing aldermen or cettinor m etv. jbbing schemes to defraud the widows and orphan?, are the most dangerous members of society. OO V. PXXGRXK'S CONCLUSIONS. I have learned a few things while I have been in public life, and I have come to certain conclusions. These are some of them: That good municipal government IS an lmDOSSlbllltV whila valnuhl franchises are to be had and en 1,a obtained by corrupt nse of money in unuingme people s servants. Even now the cibzans of Detroit hardly dare go to sleep nights for fear that some old gang will bribe the alder men to extend their franchises thir ty years. The people must be kept awake constantly awake or the il:.i iniei sups in. It is certainly a travestv noon civ ilization and Christianitv when real ly nice people are always spending money at elections to help seat some rascal. I again say that I believe the time hag come for municipal owner ship of street railway lines, water, gas, electric lighting, telephone and other necessr.ry public conveniences which, by their nature, are monopolies In taxation it is hard to see where the wage-earner or the poor man comes in. His little belongings are all in sight. His cause seems to have of late years but few advocates in Congress or elsewhere. His benefits are supposed to come in by increased wages, due to high tariffs.

We have been spurn ed before the eyes of the world. The alternative so artfully provided is now invoked. The supporters of the British money system now claim warrant for their whole nefarious programme in the alleged endorse ment of that declaration by the Re publican voters of 1896. bteps are therefore being rapidly taken to put the plan in operation.

The roads were too much for me. The lobbyist was there with ''boodle" and others with promise of Federal office to kill the bills. But I am going to try again If the railroads of Michigan paid proportionately to mileage and re ceipts what is paid in Indiana they would pay nearly $3 000,000. They now pay less than $500,000, and ev ery one in Michigan has to help pay the difference. And so it is with tel egraph and express companies. Men say: "Let us give t him that hath and take away from him that hath not even the little that he hath," but I do not believe that is good Christianity. In Michigan the rich er you are the les it costs you to travel or ship goods. The very rich and the legislature and the judges ride on passes. The lower lot buy 1,000 mile mileage books for 2 cents a mile, and put up $30, $10 of which is placed at interest for ene year by the railroad company, and then you get it back but not the interest. The poor pay 3 cents, and so it is in tax ation everywhere in the nation, the State and tie city.

FEARS FOR THE GOVERNMENT. How long can a government last which pursues such a method, and increases constantly the burdens of the industrial class and gives it to those Who prey upon the bone and sinew of this nation? The power of indirect taxation permitted to mo nopolies exceeds the direct taxation advocates which was declared by them to rest upon three fundamen tal and essential features; 1. The permanent establishment of the gold standard. 2. The retirement of the green backs and all other government notes 3. The institution of a huge bank system of power to issue and control the paper money of the country.
