Cotward They call you to witness that all tho great movements of advance that have boon takon have boon takou by tho Repub licans while the Democrats shouted Yu oantdo Loud Mr Blaino then wont on to disouss reci procity For a hosaid Re publican party was divided on it That showed that they wero reasoning 711011 In duo time they became solid for it When the Republicans were divided on tho ques

by them Tho Democrats wont stand by us unless the Republican party is divided T do not call thaf wise financieringor patri otic conduct Wo should not divide when the prosperity of 1ho country is involved An American Is a great deal bigger man either a Democrat or a Republican Any Democrat or any Republican makes himself smaller it he will stand in the way of American prosperity It may harm his party No great results can come from that The republics of this continent should be brought closer together and when we can help them and they help us It is business to do so Reciprocity is bringing those nations closer together and 1 believe in tho nexttwo years we can open to tho farmers of tho UnitedStates a market for thirtyfive millions of people in addition to what wo now havo 10 is a greater stop of progress than the Democratic party has takon in tho last fifty years These aro simple facts and not In conclusion Mr Rlainosaid Wo want tbo Republicans of Indiana united to stand

Government It was discovered culv that a resort tocompeUtivo bids would remove the liability of anything llko Imposition upon theDepartment and tho subsequent inquiries into the quality quan tity and cost of nickel have demonstrated blritlothins short of acombination among tho nickel miners would force tho price to tbo degree of extortion Tho statements to the atti lude of tlio Government
