HEW TO THE LINE. VOL. III. SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, MAY 14, 1898. No. 38 ASSOCIATION OUR REVIEW. Of the Peat and the Future of the American Negro, by D. W. Gulp, A. M., M. D. THE NEOBO XXVIII. AND THE PARTY. DEMOCRATIC We have already observed that slavery did not become a national or political issue until 1840 and that the Whig party succeeded in defeating the Democratic party. Bnt we will refrain from reviewing the Harrison and Tyler administra- tion and before proceeding we wish to impress this fact upon the mind's of the members of our race that James G. Birney, an ex-slave hol- der of Kentucky, was the first real abolitionist to run for President of the United States. He was nomi- nated by the abolitionists in 1844 and he ran against James K. Polk and Henry Clay, but Mr. Polk de- feated both of his opponents.bnt be- fore he had assumed control of our I government he lost the friendship of a great many leaders of the Democratic party. William Cullen Bryant, David Dudley Field, John W. Edwards, Silas Wright, Benjamin F. Butler, John A. Dix, who became United States senator from the state of New York in 1845, Azariah C. Flagg, John Van Buren, son of- ex- President Martin Van Buren and Samuel J. Tilden, who was a pro- found admirer and disciple of Martin Van Buren. All of those former great captains of Demo- cracy resided in the state of New York and they all became famous before ending their earthly careers. President Polk was in favor of waging war against Mexico and conquered and that the mocrats of New York would jroclaim their determination to vote for no candidate for President of the United States who was in tavor of the further extension of slavery. Martin Van Buren sympathized and was in full accord with those who were opposing President Polk and his war policy. While conversing with his friends he re- called the vote which he had cast twenty-eight years before against admitting Missouri otherwise than free. On February 16, 1848, the barnburners or free soil Democrats convened at Utica and John Van Buren again being the chief figure the convention praised John A. Due for supporting the Wilmont proviso, and it declared that Thos. Benton, a senator from a slave state, but now a sturdy opponent of extending the evil, and Long the warm friend and admirer of Mar- tin Van Buren, had "won a proud pre-eminence among the statesmen of the day." Delegates were chosen to the national convention and an address was issued which set forth at great length the free- soil principles of Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson and the other Democratic fathers. The Democratic national con- vention assembled in May, 1848, and it nominated Lewis Cass for President It condemned "the Wilmont proviso." It declared in favor of letting the new territories themselves decide upon slavery. When the barnburners returned from the convention they held a great meeting in the city hall park, New York City, and John Van Buren and the other orators who addressed the meeting declared that "the lash had resounded the fiddle and the bow and fami. liarize themselves with the shovel and the hoe. the extension of slavery in all the new territory which would likely be acquired by the government. But Samuel J. Tilden and his as- sociates were opposed to the fur- ther extension of slavery and they controlled the Democratic party of the empire state and they swept the state in the fall of 1845. They openly fought Mr. Polk and his ad- ministration and endorsed the" Wil- mont in which was em- bodied the opposition to the exten- iion of slavery into new territories. David Wilmont the author of the proviso, was a Democratic member of congress from Penn- sylvania. All the Democratic members of congress from New York supported the "Wilmont proviso" and the Democratic mem- bers of the state legislature gassed a resolution approving it and com- mending their senators and con- gressmen for supporting it. The first of September, Democrat New York assem- bled at Syracuse and David Dud- ley field proposed resolution to the effect that ainoe the crisis had come the Democracy of New York would continue to declare their "uncompromising hostility to the extension of slavery into territory now free." Lawrence Van Buren the ex-Preaidenfs brother and John Van Buren the ex-Presidents ton occupied very conspicuous on the platform. David Wilmont of Pennsylvania addressed the meeting and before .adjourning a resolution was passed by a through the halls of the national capitol." The delegates issued another address which was written by Samuel J. Tilden, fearlessly calling the Democrats to indepen- dent action and they again met in convention at Utica during the month of June. Samuel Young, who had refused to vote for Mr. Polk in 1844, was selected to pre- side over the convention and he said that if the delegates did their duty a clap of political thunder would in November "make those who were favorable to the extension of slavery shake like Belshazzar.' (To be continued.) t THE FREE SILVER REPUBLI- CANS OF WEBER COUNTY. ON Saturday, May 7th, the free silver Republicans of Weber county convened in convention in the city of Ogden and notwith- standing the fact that the meet- ing had been advertized very extensively for two weeks prior to that date and the further fact that the Hon. Cbas. A.Towne chairman of the free silver Eepnb lican party, who was present to address them, theie was only abon thirty-one delegates present tt grace the that magnifi- cent number was composed prin- cipally of young men and miss- guided women. If the brilliant editor of the Utah State Journal and his henchman who call them- selves free silver republicans cannot master any larger number of ad- herents to the cause of the Hon. -Frank JJJ. Cannon than what as- 'sembled in convention on the above HON. FRANK J. CANNON AND THE OLD WET HEN. WHILE the campaign of 1896 of this state was at its height the Hon. Frank J. Cannon traversed all portions of Utah and delivered brilliant speeches in favor of re- ciprocity, high protective tariff, bounties and free silver, and at the same time he was egged on by the old wet hen better known as Bishop C. C. Goodwin to admonish those who celled themselves free silver Republicans to hold themselves aloof from the Democratic party and not to vote for their candidate for congress nor for any of their county officers'. When the senator addressed a large meeting which was held in the Salt Lake Theater shortly after the Republican party of this county had nominated all of its county and legislative candi- dates, the senator commended each and every one of them including the Hon. W. W. Taylor (the ex- dog catcher) to the voters of this county, and at the same lime he was thoroughly familiar with the fact that Mrs. Emmeline B. Wells and several others who had secured the nominations from the hands of their convention were avowed and renounced McKinley gold-bugs. The old wet hen of the Tribune ook up Senator Cannon's slogan if reciprocity, high tariff, bounties nd free silver, and it also en- iorsed and advocated the election if the entire Republican ticket of his state and county. It even wallowed Hon. W. W. Taylor who penly championed the single gold tandard and the election of Major tfcKinley. And the Tribune and Senator Cannon both predicted hat death and damnation would italk broadcast throughout our and if the people would elect a majority of congressmen who were not in favor of the theory and deas which we have referred to. But Senator Cannon and our 'riend the old wet hen did not in- timate during that campaign that they would be in favor of surren- dering all their pet theories in or- der to acquire free silver, and at the present time these two gentle- men are engaged in condemning the Democratic party of this state because its members are unwil'ing to surrender its time honored principles for the sake of rewarding Mr. Cannon with the United States senatorship.. On Thursday night, July 1st, 1897, the Hon. William J. Bryan and in closing down some of the largest mines in our state. During the tf.ll campaign of 1897 the Tribune contended that the free silver cause was not an is- sue, but its true friends and ad- vocates contended that it should enter into all the elections both city and state. But the Tribune ridiculed that proposition and wanted to know if the free silver Democrats intended to establish a mint in this city in case they suc- ceeded in winning the election. It also championed at that election the cause of the candidates who nad been nominated by those who were in favor of the single gold standard. If Chairman Jones of the Demo- cratic national committee is of the opinion that he can further the Free silver cause in Utah by openly advocating the re-election of the Hon. Frank J. Cannon to the United States senate, whose mind as changeable as the shifting winds; and if Senator Jones "in- tends to be guided and controlled by the unscrupulous outfit which controls the Salt Lake Tribune, then it is high time lor those who are honestly in favor of free silver to repudiate the unwarranted inter- ference, in the political affairs of this state, by the Hon. James K. Jones and reaffirm their allegiance to the Chicago platform of 1896. MOYLE, ZANE COSTIGAN, ATTORNEYS ANDCOUNSELLORS-AT-LAW. Deseret National Bank Bldg. DICKSON, ELLIS ELLIS ATTORNEVS-AT-LAW.

Bat iu this they were sadly mis- taken for the Tribune of August 26, 1897, contained a cut of a beau- COMMODORE DEWEY'S GREAT VICTORY. WHEN it was authoritatively as- certained last Saturday that Com- modore Dewey had won one the greatest naval victories in ancient or modern warfare, the people of our city were overcome with great joy and on that evening they par- aded the streets and were addressed in front of the Cullen hotel by some of our leading citizens. We cannot recall an instance in the history of the world where such a marvelous feat was accomplished in naval warfare like unto that of Commodore Dewey. That great hero stands today as the uncrowned king of the world. He is still engaged in sinking Spanish ships, and he to sway over the Philippine Islands despite the fact that he has not the requisite number of men to assist him in restoring order. The latest dispatches indicate that Porto Rico's fortifications have been demolished by Rear- Admiral Sampson and that several Spanish vessels have been captured. The first American blood was shed in the war against Spain on Wed- nesday the 12th, and five Ameri- cans were killed in an engagement with the Spanish which took place inside the harbor of Cardenas. But this loss is nothing in com- parison to the loss of lives and des- truction of property which the Spanish sustained in the Philippine Island.s The war may not come to a speedy close and our forces may meet with many losses and they may be re- POWERS, STRACP L1PPMAN, Attorneys and Counselors.
