If we would only look history this is apparently too wearisome and unnecessary a I contend that the first duty of a citizen is lo thoroughly the politics of his which will teach him that the vote he holds is for upon It depends the future prosperity of the that he holds it in and that posterity will hold him responsible for the or tbe evil that may spring out of his use of it. - In a few shall be called upon to exercise the many of us for the first How shall we use it Shall we the of the Liberal party and vote for them or shall we support that by their have proved themselves the real friends of the These are questions to Let the past be for the during the last few the Liberal party climbing to power upon the question of and then cruelly shelving question for seven years Have we not during same their masterly inactivity all political and social Did they reform in the poor to aged and infirm of the state a crying evil during the whole of their administration Did they attempt any legislation between master and which then and is a great public Did they manage our Foreign creditably to the country No both at home and abroad - they showed themselves incapable of directing the business of the nation and the people acknowledge the fact by the manner in which they received the government of Lord No sooner was the noble lord in tlinn a marked change for the better took place in the government of the The Reform was settled in a far more liberal spirit than ever the Liberals dreamt and unlike their iu accordance with the of the The Conservative BUI of 1867 restored to the working man the franchise of which he had been robbed by the of 1832.

Space will not allow me to go more these matters from the tacts here set What should be the of tlie working man Shall it be to support the which has always played with their and in every department showed its incapacity to govern or shall it be for the progressive Conservatism is being carried out by the present Government Surely we will not let ourselves be deluded by a senseless cry or deluded by an effete No doubt the Conservatives have been called opposed to all and the natural enemies of the people I are such statements true Let US remember there are two sides to every but that on this question we have as yet heard only By a monopoly of the and the the Liberals have seen able to go on making these assertions without they are now accepted as notwithstanding that they are gross so palpable that we are astonished so many have been deluded by The time has now arrived for ns to throw off onr We have tremendous responsibility thrown upon us the Constitution of England in no small been placed in our Let us defeat the expectation of a noisy and support at the poll those candidates who will support Constitutional A great deal has been said about the inconsistency of a working man being Why be should not be so I cannot My definition of Conservatism to that is good in the existing to reform that which is proved to be and to resist any attempt to subvert the Constitution of the Constitution which has existed 1,000 grown with the intelligence of the and placed England at the head of the civilized I contend that it is as consistent for a working man to defend Constitutional principles as for any other and I am convinced they will not readily throw them over for any new-fangled schemes of dreamy We are not asked blindly to fbl ow any man's lead we are asked to approach our political position fairly and without before deciding upon the course wc shall take at the coming general Do this and we have the greatest confidence in the success of the Constitutional We great faith in the principles on which that cause is sincerely believing they are the best for the interests of the country on the other can produce nothing but a war of and ultimate ruin to the It is but the expression of a senseless and causeless Let us show that independent while making themselves can respect others in their Above all we must remember that under the new we shall more than ever combine two characters we shall be the a but we shall also be the and we must learn to combine the peculiar virtues of We must ever bear in mind the maxim which history that least fitted to rule who cannot be and justice in the governors being no less essential than subordination and respect for superiors in the This is not the doctrine of Radicalism and therefore to avoid Radicalism is the obvious interest as well as the first duty of a working His prosperity lies in the prosperity of the and that can be best attained by an intimate and hearty connection among aU classes of the each one of us actuated by the same the future welfare of onr common These are the principles of which demand not only the serious but the active co-operation of working e. b.
