answering ELLIOTT Southeast corner Public over Dar bys dw Review of Panic and Its Cat My Fellow we have a debate on I always like to find in the first place the points of so that we may go on to discuss those things about which we I find there is a very general agreement now among Republicans and Democrats upon two One is that we have had a very wide and disastrous in which all our people have shared the second is that one rertjTJOr the Democrats or in a con siderable measure responsible to the peo ple for these evil Now that makes the discussion a little We have and we are still in the shadow very evil The farmer has felt them the merchant has felt them above the man who was dependent upon his daily wages for his living has felt because when he lost his job he lost everything whereas the when his goods were marked had still something There were one or two features of this panic that I want to talk to yon In the first place I want to say that in my opinion it was not one of those pan ics which sometimes come from over trading and It was not a relapse from some balloon enter prises that we had entered We have had such panics as that in this and they were always charac terized by a great deal of litigation in our In the panic of 187374 the courts of all our counties were crowded with collection Men were being sned on notes and mortgages were be ing That state of things has not characterized this panic through which we have jtrst There has been very little of It was not overtrading and overspecnlation it was not wildcatting in business that brought this panic upon If it had been we would have seen the necessary incidents and concomitants of that sort of thing in the collection of notes and foreclos ures of mortgages all over the When this panic began we had more money in circnlatifn per capita than we have had for many This had come about in this In the first place under what is known as the Sher man the silver purchasing under which we bought ounces

people got over their of the banks aud they brought the money And from that time to this bank vaults have been full of They have had such a surplus as they never had they could make no use of it nobfjdy wanted it there was no business being done thqre were no solvent borrowers who would take the Factories were closed and great enterprises wer There was a great surplus bt money floing noboYIy any Canned by What broughtthat condition about What was this expectation of this dread of catastrophe which came the people of this country and which is still more or less upon them It the uncertainty that the Democratic success of 1892 introduced is to what was to be done upon the tariff They had said they were going to destroy this protective The Democrats from Andrew Jackson down to Hendricks and McDonald and Voorhees had said Wo will collect off of the foreign goods that coiue in so mnch money as is necessary to pay theex penses of trie That is the favored way of gettin our revenue we are not going to tix the people directly as we did during the whoa our cus toms duties were inadequate to but wu will levy ou foreign goods enough to pay the expenses of the Now they have changed that policy they used to talk about in cidental protection ai a very proper and worthy But turned about at Chicago in 18SU aad said that protec whether of a purpose or as an inci dent to the collection of the is and that they proposed to tear the whole fabric Nobody knew what they were going to We only knew that the house that had shel tered tho shelter of we had grown to be the richest and most prosperous people in the was to be taken down from over our Frotu drat timoto this people have been standing dreading what might be What has been done They were bound to build a house they would be pleased with themselves they were bound to build oue that would Instead they constructed a build ing no Democrat Cleveland silver lie said in effect if this Sherman bill can Iw repealed promptly we shall have times at Yon all remember And congress was assembled to act upon that single ques Everybody was greatly anxious lest they should do something Cleveland practically said to them I want yon to come together aud to re peal tho Sherman and when yon have done that I want you to go home The Sherman law was passed in the it was of as an expression of friendliness to silver as A great many people are clam oring for freo coinage of every man should have the right to bring silver that was worth GO cents to the and that the government should put a stamp on it that would make it worth a dollar and give it back to A great many people thought that would make everybody I can see how that was a good thing for the men who owned the silver but not for the people There was a feeling that silver had not been fairly dealt So the Republican party passed tho Sherman They said We will tost this question whether it is trno that there is only a small excess of silver over what we are a produced if this is taken silver will go to an equality with We under took to buy onncesovery and issued pamper inonev to pay for We gave the country more currency by the Sherman Cleveland said he wanted this law repealed and though the Democrats had denounced it in their when he appealed to his party nearly onehalf of the Democrats in the house and the sen ate voted against repealing The Re publicans said This was an experi ment it was the best thing we knew at the time H has not done go great harm as you it is not the real cause of the it has failed its but Cleveland wants it We will help him repeal my about that Sherman bill I have not much to I approved it under the sajie conditions existing I would do it In what a contrast the action of the Republicans in this matter was to the way our Democratic friends dealt with tho same question When we had a Republican administra tion there were Democrats who have since squarely voted against free coinage when they had power to make it a but were then voting for free as they nuder their broath To put the president in a I am glad to say our Republican friends have not been legislating with any such have in mind the good of the country and have put their pride under their feet when it seemed that they by repealing a law of their owu advance tho public The Cry of Cheaper What was the cry of this new tariff legislation was to be had in the interest of cheaper greater cheaper How much we heard about The merchants and manufacturers were advised thati tariff policy was to be inaugurated that would cheapen and by that they were warned uot to buy or produce anything except on I think this country has one great danger threaten ing that is not even It is a great peril for nou seqniturs from all It is not surprising that this Democratic promise that you were to be given everything that you wanted to buy while your wages wore not to go down at was accepted by everybody Could not you see the folly of such a the shoe maker was to have a cheaper coat and a cheaper and the tailor was to have cheaper and the shirtmakcr a cheaper coat and shoes Dout you see the folly of that the things that you bought were to be cheapened and the things yon sold to go That miserable piece of ill that nonsequitur that reminds me of Hoods picture of a horse that had broken awaj from the and at the head of the road had turned back to look at the man sitting in the This was the Workmens wages were to be the same we were to intro duce a very large amount of English goods we were to make just as mnch my the wretched ill logic of all these promises Is it not surprising that men were captured by theso to prejudice and manufacturers were denounced as robber barons The man by had saved money and put it in a mill instead of a mortgage was the enemy of his fellows and the oppressor of the men to whom ho paid It was not only the but it was a cruel doc trine to teach to our for it di vided them it broke up that sense of community and common interest and kindness that ought to characterize our my the Democratic No we hadnt ought Our policy has been sympa thetic toward any feeble nation any where who was trying to struggle up into a higher and more secure national lif They have seized the world whero evor it was weakly I may stop to say hero that there is a part of the world they have not been able to carve not from any want of good The and South American states have been saved from the commercial and military aggression of the European powers only because the United States has said Yon shall not lay hands on They have imitated our Republican form of gov they are near to ns geo their sympathies have been with us and we have been patiently and constantly their The tariff bill Of 1890 gave to some of these gret tropical countries free access of their sugar to the United By so doing we contributed to tho savings of the household expenses of every man and woman in We did not tax but made a contribution out of the revenues of the government by giving yon free sugar and at the same tune by reciprocity arrangements with those countries wo secured a favored entrance into Cuba and others of the South American countries for a large list of our agricultural products and our mannfactur d It was a fair bargain we nad an advantage in that trade that no government of Europe could British merchants cried out against They asked the government to appoint a commission to investigate the results of this aggressive policy of the United Their trade with South America fell off and ours enor mously increased and yet these gentle men who want the markets of tho world not only threw by destroying those reciprocity these enormous enormous in their present still more so in their pos that we had already and in which Europe could not compete with us at They threw them all Is that sincere desire to enlarge our foreign markets A Product of how was this Democratic bill passed through congress Senator Jones of ArkaiisaF frankly told the country how it He took the bill around and said to each Democratic sen What is there in the bill you dont and what will you what changed rates to vote for it How shall I modify this bill in order to get your vote was the a Democratic senator who lived in a town where collars aud cuffs are made said must have a high protect ive duty ou collars and and so it went all the way around the Democratic side of the senate That was their method of dealing with the great est question that congress is ever called upon to deal with the question that most strongly affects the business interests of the whole Forty three votes One Demo cratic Hill of New York voted and in consideration of that vote they have nominated him for gov ana look for him to lead a forlorn hope in that Democratic What principle runs through this tar Missouri Pacilic Train Held Up Near A FUSILLADE OF all in 1eavcning Latest US Govt Money to On farms and city property at the

treasury so that the money in circulation had been increased by about by this new currency that had been pot out among the The money in circulation had also been enormously in creased by the reduction of tho surplus in the A Reminder to Yon remember my Democratic friends hope we are att for I have not anything unkind to say about any remember when they made a campaign upon the theory that the country was being ruined because there was so much They said Yon have taken this money out of the pockets of the people and locked it up and it is not doing anybody any That surplus had been by the purchase of gov ernment bonds reduced enormously and the money was out among the people doing its work And thea by the in creased I am glad to say a Republican congress voted and I approved with and have never apologized enormous additional amount of money was put in circulation among the people our Democratic friends changed the form of the indict ment against They indicted ns first for having too mnch in the and now they say we left too My point is that the money is circuhv does not like He says iu effect that the tariff bill is a tainted and ugly ttjiug so so unfair fliat he would not sigu And they had no sooner made that tariff bill than they set to work to tinker it My Demo cratic my Republican men of thuso and these do you want this to go dii Do you want to continue in power a party that after one years effort upon this question has produced a bill so unsatisfactory that they themselves began to tinker with it and amend it the very moment it passed For the year and a half

prepare a tariff bill for report at ihe earliest possible moment in the regular session in December went to work ou but the trouble with the whole business has been that there is no coherence in Democratic party upon the tariff It is an aggregation of differing views upon the What was the result the chairman of the ways and means com mittee of Ac a is a man of respectability aud He is a I who has studied economy questions and is full of book knowledge alwut His theory was that America was fenced and that the work to be done was to tear down the He told his English friends who banqueted him

doubted uneasy our gold was going abroad and bills or the coin they tboy were afnid we would come upon the project the Democratic party had on I think that the report says that at that poiiit there was applause and You never knew an English man to hear a threat against Englands either in arms or in com and appland unless he thought that a foolish I thank God for the fact that American diplomacy all through the story of the formation of the United Central and South American republics has been sentimental It has not been a selfish commercial The diplomacy of Great Britain has been always characterized by commer cial aggression and has been free from She has pushed her com merce at the point of tho bayonet upon the weaker nations of the world and blown her goods from the months of great guns into the ports of trusting as her opium into We cannot get commerce that A iff bill I ask my Democratic friends if they can tell me what principle it was formed A tariff bill ought to lie the outcome of some uniform ly applied from the beginning to the end of the This bill is not so It has some clauses highly protective it has placed some other articles as mnch entitled to protection ou the free They have brought forth the tariff hig That is not my judg ment because that might not count for is Clevelands He said the bill was so false to Democraic was so incon sistent aurl incongruous that he would not sign it and if the newspaper reports are true he would hardly stay in the room where it Wilson not only said it was but intimated that unpleasant and scandalous influences had to do with its Cleveland oven alluded to such influ ences in his Are we to elect a new Democratic con gress to succeed this one Are we to say that we like this condition of uncer tainty and unrest If yon chose a Dem ocratic I should think that is what you But if yon would put an end to yon should say Gentle you have and at a great cost to the If you feel that you will elect a Republican congress iu November that wiU make the end of the bad that will bring to an end this raid upon American A Republican house of representatives can not do as there will be a Demo cratic senate aad a Democratic presi They will not be able to pass a new tariff but the country will un derstand that this war is not to be re I should think that many a Democrat might fall into that way of thinking and say I will see about it two years from when the great campaign is but for tho present I am willing there should be a Republican house of repre sentatives in order that there shall be an end to this fearful business appre hension and These issues are in your hands they are worthy of your fullest and most intelligent Every man who hears mo and believes these things should bestir
