preliminary remarks and took an

lie said the Democrats wanted
him to diecuss only the financial is
sue. In '92 they said "4 years more
of Grover and we will be in clover,"
No more 5 cent cotton, but we will
have 20 ceat cotton. The Demo.
crats always haye the cry of "free"
something. In '7G they eaid not
free silver but fiee whiskey and
sound money. Said we will give
you cheap clothing. They won a
great victory on it. They had every
branch of the government and had
every chance to fulfil
promises, but did not do
Siid they had bankrupted the gov-;
eminent and made a deficit of
$13,000,000 per month. He said

over to the Democrats $1 8,000,000

a Democratic Supreme Court
declared, i. ucx:or:otitntional,
that it took two v; t.) change
constitution. How should we avoid
the $13,000,000 per month? By
taxing the foreigner with a tariff, or
by laying a tax on our land and
o her property ?
He strongly urged a tariff tax as
it would come eff of the foreigner.
He would haye Americans to make
whatever ahe needed. He clauned
:hat Americana could not compete
with EuroreuLS unless they weiu
without clothing. He eaid the
Democrats thought we ought not to
tax importeis, that Senator Gorman
was willing to tax the coffee that
was a poor man's necessary supply,
but would not tax the wool that was
brought into competition with the
He said the people did not like
Mr. Cleveland so well now. He
would only say he was entirely hon
eit and w.s fearless in the con vie,
tion of duty and that he was abused
for thing3 the constitution and laws
compelled him to do upon hi3 oath,
that he appealed to congress to
come to the rescue and avcid the
issue of bonds and that the Repub
lican houser promptly passed the
Dingley bill that would have met
the want, but that a Democratic
Seuate sat sullenly and would not do
anything and the President had to
issue bonds and now they were find-,
ing fault with him for it. He said
that the Republicans wanted to tax
foreigners, the Democrats wanted to
tax our own people and asked the
people to yote as they wished, for the
Republicans if they wanted to tax
the importer, but for the Democrats
if they wanted to be taxed them,
He said bnsinees began to decline
IV93 when Cleveland came into
He said the Democrats eaid in '73
that they wanted to capture the
markets of the world for the farmer
and quoted census figures to show
that our imports had decreased
under the effort. He dwelt on the
tobacco competition that he said
had ruined the industry.
He claimed that the Wilson bil 1
caused all the decline m prices. He
said the Democratic party is a costly
luxury. He said that under Cleve
land prices declined, under Harri
son they adyanced. Tnat the Dem
ocrats used to yell "nigger," now
they want his vote and they yell
free silver, that manufacturers are
stopping and many were saying
thev could not hold out much
longer. lie said that Republicans
put a tariff on our farm productions,
including milk, butter, etc., but
the Democrats raised the tariff on

Cranh.-rrv, booming and blooming
under Republican and declining un
der Democratic rule. He eulogized
McKmley and promised the South
to t.iowia with prosperity if he
were elected. He would not speak
much of Cleveland the people
hated him but would quote Mr.
Bryan "who had said it was immate
rial whether the Wilson bill raised
the price of wool or nor. He said Mr.
Brvan waurs free lumber for Ne
br.v?kan3 to build houses. He did
not blame him. We mu3t each look
to our interests. He told us what

only way w would ever get f n e
silver was by international agree
ment, and that reciprocity would
force the nations to ndopt it. He
said that Mr. Bryan admitted that
free coinage would cause a panic hiU
like giving a
medicine that made him sicker at
first, then cured him. The Senator
ridiculed the idea.
He touched lightly on Mr. Dock
ery'e leaving and thought ha would
find cut his folly at "sucking time."
