coming and but a few months ago was elected speaker of iho house of Since that time his history is known to every The peculiarity of his com mon sense has entitled him to the appellation of Czar by his democratic They say he has violated the parliamentary law of the land which has been in use for the last one hundred This is I and yet s veil sometimes to depart from old Here in our own state of Iowa he legislature apnointed a committee vhich revised our We had iu our ourts a method of procedure which had 3ecn in use a thousand Tha peo ple of Iowa thought it best to depart roni the old methods of transacting the susmess of the country and proceed in a implcr and that is now our and no one has ever questioned the visdom of the That peculiarity of the speaker of con ress not being able to see a democratic nember of congress in his scat aud ut of his seat at the same has ntitled him to theappellationof Czar Many of you have been n Washington and have seen the ousc of It is a parello ram in longer than it is broad a cry large The speakers platform s at one side of this large elevated omewhat from the and tho scats f the members are arranged in a semi So that as Speaker Reed sits in is chair with his gavel in his he s able to see the faces of all the mem ers that are before Looking at ie members and seeing them in their eats he had the hardihood of counting hern as I have an idea that in addition to be g a man of remarkable common e is also a devout My ar ival has been so short that I have not ad time to try him on the longer or lorter but 1 have an idea lat In his boyhood days he belonged to onie Sabbath school and read in that Id book that says that all liars shall be in lakes of applause and vhcn a democratic member of congress sked him to say he was present and ab ent at the same he refused to vrite It He had no desire to send jese men to hell he wanted to keep lem out of the burning and at the ame he wanted to keep his country Such a man is Speaker who have the honor of introducing to you his Reed spoke as follows thank you for our very kindly which is all ie more pleasant to me as it is so far rom my and I had not hoped to e so well known as I seem to I am Iso pleased with your because think it has in it something more than crsonal feeling because it seems to me o have something of that faith in popu ar government which it has got to be o necessary to have in the United States f It seems very strange to be bliged to say in the United States f there is as much danger of lie failure of popular government as Not a very great I m free to the same no man can read without regret some uttcr nces which democratic editors and talesmen are forcing themselves to lake in the present They eem to be careless where thcir re marks may lead provided they sad to success iu the present hey seem to take no heed of the mor which is the more important day Iways for a Our government Jinnot go except by adherence to the ound principles of of true of democracy which means he government by the Of course here are other kinds of vhich are much more convenient than ovcrnment by the There are inds of government where there is ery little trouble to hey have to do is to and they are upon to think what they shall Government by the people de mands some trouble on the part of the jeople Government by the jeople cannot go unless the people hemselves participate in it aud that re uires them to think that requires them o bring their minds to bear upon the iroblem of Of o each man it seems as if he las no or too slight to je of any great account and yet his nfluence to its fullest extent must be ex rted and become a part of the ng if we intend to realize fully idea of our which is a government by There are some peo ile who hanker after the idea of a gov by the superior by he men who have who lave come forth from who are supposed to be imbued with the wisdom of this world and some of the oresight of the But I think that gentleman from colleges have per laps a greater idea of what they know than they will have twenty years after they have I can remember how simple the problem of life seemed to me thirty vears All that was necessary vas to follow the advice of men who had vritten There is no greater fal acy in existence than the mistaken no tions which are entertained about edu cation and intelligence Education has been so much associated with the com mon with the with books that most unless they are fall into the error of believing that book education is the only It is very that book education is the key to the larger education which comes But a railroad is as tre mendousan educator as a whole series of common A great manufactur ing establishment is an educator to the workmen and to the surrounding people as great as the county e get educated by intercourse with each other by communication to each other 01 me facts that we know and if any man of middle ago will bethink himself for a be will remember that all thai he has all that he has in a greater measure co to him since he left ine eou tion which he has got from his business the education which he has got from his irive sense anu H the teachings of others if we could do IU we would have not half the trouble that we have iu lit for everybody is ready to give his and the cheapness advice is Experienc have sol to get for ourselves eto test mens theories we have to test learning of books by application to coin mon to every day affairs andI when we have made that ncni we really be said to be it would be a poor tost of the of a to confine your to book T with would rule the ti found in a small company which I name an THUKSDAY OCTOBER 1890 PRICE 15 CENTS PER neu may DB else be sides The Americ and thev 1 have liese industries which the great e sives to little as we think about it and little as we talk by I will endeavor to explain why I make remark but n present purpose is to say that we are a people intelligent enough to govern our and intelligent enough to govern not by the wisdom of the high est but by the average wisdom of us Uid you ever think that one of the oest reasons why there should bo gov ernment by the is because it is government of tho people and while hese higher intelligences might make aws that would look prettier on tho would they fit all of us as well as aws which all of us make I havent any doubt or hesitation on the subject at I know that the laws which we all nake are better fitted for us all than aws that were made for us by the arch fitted for us suitable and in saying that I do not the divine government of he because that ds the means of governing the world which the best hu lan wisdom of this under divine has ever been able to achieve ir If you do tot believe look around at this audi Tel me where on the face of the outside of the United States of any such audience can be gath red mn 1 am not ow speaking against the gainst the good of any national ly I am only where will you nd a higher average outside of he United than you find here You know you cannot do You know that an audience like this is the iroof positive of the splendid character f the American people because I can how you in the United this very a thousand audiences just as good s It is all over the not in one portion of it alone ut yon will find them scattered all over he country It is because the diffusion f How did we earn the governmental sense that we lave Was it by some superior intelli ence teaching it to us or was it by iracticing the art of government our that we learned the business rif ty years ago such an audience as this ould not be found fifty years ago the ntelligence was not as great as it is here by dint of governing our by dint of arguing among our elves all the great we have ot to be intelligent enough to go we have got to be intelligent enough to rapple the situations of today we lave got to be intelligent enough to ay the foundations of n order to carry out our we must ie faithful to the fundamental idea of ur which is the control of he nobody left Ap If you sin against that funda icntal you may be in the anguage of that your sin will nd you There never has been a Ime when the people of the United States have lapsed from the doctrine of he rule of the where they have lot had to pay dearly for the violation of his principle aud today there is a remendous wrong going on in this can show you that it is a a1 ordiug to the principles which I have aid and to every one of which very democrat in this audience must If eight millions of people and heir legal representatives were and all their rights of which hey were deprived were distributed qually among us there might he onie ground for argument in favor of hey might be understood to be our that we were although t would be in defiance of that reat principle which Abraham Lincoln las that no man on earth is good enough to govern any other man without his But hese these representatives of eight nillions of our population under the con tilution of the United States are just as nuch citizens as the proudest man with n the sound of my he constitution of the United States guarantees to them the same rights that re guaranteed to every one of us all and if we fail to preserve those ve are false to the principles which we ourselves profess and the punishment vill fall as surely as the punishment fol owed on our neglect to wipe out the Time of human slavery ind the punishment in part has already Instead of the rights of that mil ion and a quarter of voters being lisuibuted so that each of have your every power vhich the constitution gives to men has been taken from and has been given to a section of this dont let anybody be listurbed because I mention do not mention it to harrow up any odys but simply for the pur lose of that is The lower of a million and a quarter of whih is taken away from south ern republicans is handed over to the neu of the You and I get not one iota of that power on the t is used to govern us without our con What permits it Nothing but our Let me give you one The state of Wiscon sin throws votes for nine cou every one of them honest votes and honestly The states of South Louisiana and Mississippi cast which is more and they get for a instead of nine congress that every gentle they arc all gentlemen there gentleman in those Ive states counts for three Wisconsin citizens like those I see before me Is there any reason why that should be so Is there any sectionalism in claiming that it ought not to be so Does antisectionalism consist in bestowing power upon one set of states in the union which is not he stowed upon other slates Let me give you a still stronger If you will look at the votes in the states of South Carolina and of you will find that seven members of congress come from each but that one vote in the state of South Carolina elects as many mem bers of congress as seven votes elect in Kansas and it is a singular fact that there are illdisposed whom I do not who have the temerity to say that it is a bad and unfortunate Iddition to that that Kansas is peopled largely by the old soldiers who by their presence and Their these South Carolina gentlemen to come back and help govern Is there any democrat in this audience who will that this is just Is tnere any Tie so wedded to his so bigoted w tb that he w 11 say that this is iustice Not I know that the quaHty of the American citizen has sunk o deep into the most bigoted that no oneof them will under take to say me Now you want to mitaltop to dont And if you you have got to Even in the churches thev will tell you that providence works through human instrumentality and pol itics can only act in the same wa n auhter We have got to get at tha Dy lawand what ought to be the law Ksa charge made which not de nlpd bv any southern believe nobody but Governor Hill denies it among other classes of s not an honest and that there Is not an honest And the governor of South after declar ng as reported in he Charleston Xeivs and n substance that men were governing men at the ballot to allow a republican to have a ook at the count or be one of the judges of but made every one of them members of his own The result vas that the continued to govern he And throughout the south hey all admit Henry lis eyes in line frenzy t in the state of it vrong that the United States should mow something about the election of the people that govern it The member of ongress from south from AJa from has the same in the house that Governor Gear over your rights and over your prop irty and over your Is there any eason why the citizens of this Iowa dis rict should Ot know that those men are lonestly elected One would If here were any honesty left in the hat men would jump at a chance to ro ute the if it is a that wentysix seats are or were oc upied at the beginning of this by men who hadnt any more ight to them than they had a right to eats in the British house of Great but you here s a bill which takes away the liberties of he What liberty tho liberty honestly liburtyHo tuff ballot boxes The liberty to niscouut returns What remedy oes It propose It proposes simply that tale officers of the United pre umably as honest as any of the state shall have the right to surper the election and see that it is fair if they aud the state officers hen it goes to the circuit and in he face and eyes of the whole world he count is and a just decision is they it is a force What force nothing but he force of the United States of Araer is What is a law for it is to be What is it nade for to be Is hero any reason why a law to secure lonest elections should not be executed Sayonets How sensitive some of hese gentlemen are about There cant be anything in heir past history that makes them feel hat There are no uoro bayonets behind the bill for elec ions than there are behind every law of he United Aud every one of hem knows And yet they start these djecMves about the elections ny that is the way they perse uted the They nade the most terrible outcries against iverything that was done by Abraham in the same And I be ieve today that intelligence has so In reased that no democrat can feel him elf called upon by any sense of justice o make opposition to the right of the majority to according to the consti ution of the United But the majority rule by the people has some hing to do with We cannot all meet ogether to do our A town neeting of the United States vould be unapproachable by any or any thousands stationed m tho So wo have got to have a representative And every me hundred and eighty thousand of the lopulatiou will probably scud members if congress to the next What or to register the will of the of this You will send Governor Gear because you lave got intelligence ause you have got intelligence and nd he has got both Ap ilausclIf you send him of course ou want him to go in his ont you If you send him ou dont intend to have him neu by the rules of the f you send him and one hundred and ixtyfive more you expect lim and the rest of the republicans to dont you If you ont what do you send them for What jbject did thepeopleof the u ISSO have for electinc a republican louse Was it to come back and ve couldnt pass a tariff bill because of said we should not We couldnt pass a silver bill Meause Grover Cleveland had issued his irivate orders that silver was to be tricken out of We couldnt pass the administrative bill because the iemocrats were against We couldnt io we couldnt do because the ither fewer in beat us would you have been satisfied vith that What did you acts of or excuses To borrow Svarts old Do you want lobsters or aflidav There cant be any oubt what sensible people iVhat on earth are the democratic news lapers blazing in headlines about Wasnt republican congress sent there to ass the McKinley bill Didnt we have a little discussion about this question of jrotection Didnt we fieut for four ong months all over the United stir up sixty millions of people into he expression of an opinion on that sub aud if we what was the opinion iVasnt it in favor of not acci not but protection of That is what thcMcKinleybill t is a good And there is every reason why it should be a cood it was got up in accordance vith our principles of I am at the risk of tiring you a lit to repeat that the principle of our government is a government by the iverage sense of everybody and if that bill was made that why then it is an American when Mills got up his he retired into the dark ness and by and by he emerged with a And being from a great manufacturing state like Laughter and continued applause he was fitted by education and precept to ret up a bill all out of his own At my he thought because ho would not permit any hearings from any rody he didnt want to learn from any jody it right Did you ever consider what a tariff bill is it concerns a possibly two hundred different kinds of every one of which sucks up the life of It takes a man his lifetime to learn And Mills knew the whole two hundred Gear is a member of the com mittee of ways and had too much business sense to have any such idea as In
