Comprehen and AnalrtlcvJCxposIthm s of the One of the ablest and most philosoph ical speeches in the present campaign was delivered at the Speaker Reed meet ing in the Grand opera house at Bur lington last week by James For long years Senator Harlan has en joyed a national reputation as an but he took his Burlington by surprise on this Manyof them had never heard him and they were not anticipating the intellectual treat with which they were At his home In where he generally speaks on the eve of each annual the event Is always looked forward to in pleasant anticipation and no hall Is large enough to hold all the people who come to hear MrHarlan is ripe in statesmanship and in public affairs aud hehas a is pleasing and He withal an analytical method of consider ing public questions and as one has said of him In an argument he drives the spike clear through and then clinches it on the other He has a compre hensiveness of a clearness of a fairness of statement and a logical mode of reasoning that carrjes conviction to the hearer and leaves an opponent uncomfortably short of data with which to refute the proposi tion laid An instance of this is found in Harlans review of the tariff system of the republic Its foundation to the present The democrats denounce the yet they have never attempted to substitute any If it is a robber tariff in it is a robber tariff in part if it is all its component parts are bad and 450 million dollars annually must be raised to support the general govern If not from the from whence is the money to come And why has no president and no from the administration of George Washington to the present sug gested any other revenue system Senator Harlans AXD LADIES am very grateful for the complimentary manner in which I have been presented to this splendid audience the only regret I have is that the second gentleman referred to by your presiding officer is not able to occupy the whole time this I insisted that he but the chairman of the congres sional committee informs me that he cannot urge such a request on Speaker Reed on account of his somewhat worn condition due to the number of speeches he has delivered since the adjournment of So for the present about the best thing you can dvl is to listen to not that I have anything new or strange to I will to make one good point as I proceed that to be brief and give way to the speaker of the house of We are an immense audience to as I composed of members of the two great parties into which the people of the United States are and have been divided for a series of into which all free people di Absolute unanimity of ooimon cannot be expected where there is free dom of thought and Know ing where I and among whom I I want to say at the very begin ning that I do not think that all virtue is monopolized by either of those two great I am quite from my that it can not be claimed for the democratic party and as there are numbers of dem ocrats present here I want to fortify that opinion at the very outset by saying that it is barely possible that the people of the United States ought not to rely exclusively on the advice or the honesty of the democratic partyJ as to its honesty I will read briefly a fact or two that I have picked up from the journals of the country showing thai within the last few years there have been the following defalca tions on the part of leading For the treasurer of Alabama defaulted recently in the amount of 000 the Langson the treasurer of the over over for the pros sent I will not continue the Laugh of the leadingdemocratic states in this union on whose political action will depend the majority of that party in either branch of they ever do achieve a majority in cither and on whose votes will depend their ma jority in the electoral colleges of the states of the if thev should suc ceed in securing a majority of those elec cannot re ly on the democratic party exclusively for its There are many demo crats as honest as the republicans but as I have not trained with that you will pardon me for saying that I defy any democrat here tonight produce such a listof defaulters among the high officials of the republican party as that I have just read to There are no other ten states of the union that can furnish such a The only republi can defalcation here that I can call to was that of Superintendent the last democratic superintendent of public instruction In this Noreanlwe relyexclusively on the patriotism of the democratic party and its adherence to the doctrine of self As many of you heard to one of ihe leading fundamental principles of the republican party is equality right ihe law that high and rich and learned and white and shall equal civil and political as a corollary to such thai the majority of citizens must governAswe are not able to as absolute unanimity is impossi It follows as a necessary that the majority in a free country must gov I desire to in the second that the democratic party dont exactly adhere to this and they do noi believe in a government by the My first proof Is the result of the election of You all remember that in that presidential the republican early in the history of ils insisted that we should have no more slave That was the fundamental doctrine of the party noninterference wilh slavery in the states where it but free territory where slavery did not And the people endorsed this and elected a republican president and vicepresident of the United This appeal to the jury of our whole country ought to have decided that ques The democratic party did not think The controlling element of the residing in southern rebelled and attempted to go out of the and the Breckenridge ele ment ot the democratic party in the north sympathized and aided all they The offense committed was that the of the TJnited the presidential electors ofthe several states un had by would havejno more This Iwastthes tEeTDnjon tte de and oceans the th dnringy the succeeding

succeeding the snpp sion of the rebellion the people United States demanded and secured the adoption of the and 15tS amendments to the constitution tl United passed by about a twothirds vote In 1 branches in congress and ratified by t legislatures of threefouitha of the then represented the congress t United Notwilhstanding thfej solemn decisionof ihe people of United States through their 4 rep presentatives and senators in eon and their representatives democratic party against the decision and resolvedjin their national convention of 1872 that these provisions of the constitution of the United States should be ignored and V ireated as null and by the tion of Frank Blair as candidate for the vicepresidency of United Once more in 1876 the people of the United States decided at the polls and 1 through their representatives In con gress that the speedy recnrn to payment should be aud the con gress of the United States during i next succeeding two yearspassed a bill providing for specie payment in Notwithstanding Ihis decision peo ple of the United at the polls in the election of their representatives to congress the democratic party opposed this wilh all their mental efforts and went so far as to proclaim through their journals and their speakers on the stump that the return to specie payment was dosolutely Some of their brokers through the state of New Yorfc proposed to give as much as for the first chance at the tre isury of tha Lnited States in the demand of re demption in coin of the greenback cur rency of the once and I cannot proceed at length and In we heard from Speaker Reed this the people of the United States decided uur der peculiar with great two two one of which was presented oy President Cleveland in his very peculiar message to congress in December in hich he discussed no question what ever except that of a tariff and reconc mended that the congress of the United States should greatly modify and ulti mately repeat the tariff The repub licans accepted the issue and added one and thai m this country every male citizen of proper age and legal residence should have the right to vole just once and no more at each and that those votes should be fairly and honestly and we went to the jury of the people of the country on that and the people i at ihe polls by iheir votes deliberately I decided in November of 13SS for Ihe pro tection of American industries and equality of citizenship at the why are we debating this question here in Iowa and all over the court try Because ihe democratic party no respect for the decision tion by the people of the United at the If the people are able decide any that was definitely decided and the verdict rendered in election of General president of the United and Mortonv vice These same victuals have to be chewed over and over because of the dis respect of the democratic for the opinion of the masses of the people of this they say just what Cleveland said in the message to which I that the tariff js a tax and that it the cost of products precisely to the of ihe magnitude of the If any of you will take the trouble to look back at this message you will find that I quote it And who was put on the ticket as vicepresident with MrCleveland at the second in his discussion of the sub ject repeats what Cleveland had and repeats it over and over a that every dollar of the tax that Is levied and collected from the people of the United States under the tariff law is paid five times over by the con sumer of imported articles to the pro ducers of American He says that during the year the col lections of the customs houses ot the customs houses of the United States amount to that the people of the United States paid that amount into the treasury of the that the importers added it to the price of the goods and products brought In from abroad and the consumers paid it but that five times that amount in value of similar products to ihose taxed under Ihe eMsliug tar id law were made by the manufaciurers and producers of ihe peo pie of the United States and that the prices of ihcse home products wasen hanced in the precise so that in stead ot paying only as en hanccd price on these
