reached the United Stutes in 1803 after dragging down the great business houses ot the world Europe called for gold the dram on the banks began and the panic was upon us I ask if American laws caused the nard times It so the laws were on the statute books when Harrison stepped out and Cleveland into the presidential chair It the panic was due to tion it was republican legislation and not democratic Congress did not meat till the August of 1893 and the on them Its fore- bodings came dn the land two years be- fore the election The bank doors be- gan to close and tories closed Harrison could not have stopped it it be had been elected It wub world wide and it took tour years to sweep around the globe The hard times were not due to the tion of Cleveland or to cratic legislation The glory to the laborers and to the American come since the ot the tariff law Legislation did not bring on the panic It a cyclone swept a town it would be as reasonable to blame the mayor and council for tbe de- struction as it is to eay that democratic legislation caused the panic in this country Re publican laws could cot have changed it The chief cause of tbe great crash was tbe displacement ot silver from its former place aa a circulating medium of the world We have done what you wanted us to do You put us in power to equalize things I see that there are no aires in this gathering I notice f tli at grown thoughtful over the forge nnd plow and shoulders that are stooped by labor These are signs ot simple prosperity n condition with which i every American should be Under republican rule these riches wem accumulated by process of law nnd the men who accumulated the money made the laws under that system nnd behind it there were other monopolies and com- bines Something was wrong in a which gave great liches to a few nud took money from the One great monopoly that of woolen goods According to the republican story we gave the southerner pen and paper nnd allowed him to make the kind of bills he wanted Every year taxes was paid on woolen goods This is a tax on tne people ot the north as woolen gooda here are a necessity In tbe the ple cotton nnd linen and the vast of the southerners never need nor woolen clothea The crats took this tax oCF ot wool and re- the northern people of thia den We put a tax on sugar nnd I will explain to you why we did it Some democrats this but I do not with them in their denunciation No sugar trust was organized till tbe McKmley was passed and the cratic tariff busted the trusts nnd lowered tbe price of granulated sugar A tax on sugar is more even nnd fair to nil the people of tne country than any other tax The poor man buys what sugar he and gets it at the eat price possible but the rich man buys sugar in in ita moat ex- pensive form as he can well afford to do so The way in which the candy are patronized is an tration of this Tbe tax on sugar is levied and paid in proportion of means The wool tnx is something everybody in north has to pay The rich man pays tax on the one suit ot clothes he nnd the poor man has to pay tax on the woolen clothes worn by and his wife and twelve children We are giving you everything you de- manded We have taken the tax off of the necessities of life such na salt ber and wool We taken the tax off ot lumber BO that to-day the young man can build n home for 20 per cent less than he could

I they hod to fall bock on thing or their destruction would been complete I Bm told that right here in Macon democrats are joining the party because we brought on times Are the to The hard times begiM

observe in glance all that takes place all over the world Some croat in Europe and we read of it the next day To-day the man of county knows more ot what is place in Liebon Calcutta and Canton than bii father did Fifty-third congress breathes tho air ot victory The have corrected thirty years of taxation When the voice of denunciation against the party ceases rest assured that it will grow brighter and stronger The great principle of the democrats ia to equally the burden and diminish the public taxation Like a beacon lighten a dark sea tbe democratic party will guide tbe ship of state back into the harbor of prosperity out ot the raging thing that we did was to make greenbacks taxable property like gold so that a tni will have to be paid on money in any form and dishonest persons cannot get out of paying it by changing their gold into greenbacks There has been a loud clamor the income tax It IB no more than fair that he who has a vast fortune should pay a little portion for his brother who has not been favored by nature or fortune pose that these things were all that we done lathis not a mighty work? But this ia only one volume We have drawn down the expenses ot the country and are paving every year by decent administration We have substituted tariff tot revenue only in plice of we have made the rich pay more than the poor we have taxed large incomes and we have decreased tbe expenses of the country What may you not expect ot you send us again to the honored hulls of the I believe that tto

streets are disgraceful com- pared lo other Why it is simply disgusting to look out and see the ters tilled with offal straw paper and trash and especially when we remember how much the paved streets have cost us We have the best streets I believe of any city in the country and I be- lieve that they are the dirtiest In some cities I know ot no larger than the paved streets are flushed every night and are kept as clean as a floor Here the gutters are allowed to fill with stinking decaying matter until a man almost wishes for the old mud streets again When we had them the offal was trampled in It would be an easy matter to the streets in the business center every night nnd clean the A New At St Louis yesterday Bert ag established n new cycling century mark by riding 100 miles at the Fair
