tho repeal of the Missouri Compromise and the joint debate that oc curred in Illinois between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas that the philosophy of slavery was fully presented before popular au It was this debate that led to the nomination of and made him tho first Republican President of the United The Senator horo wont into an exhaust ive historical sketch of the Republican contrasted tho

their former Who could believe that such could be the re sult And what a mockery of justice what a reproach to our patriotism what a shame to our loyal people that it is Let us see where the fault Republican party shed no blood after the war was inude no provided no It said to tho Confederate soldier Oo home and sin no Thett was a universal desire among Republicans for the restoration of the rebel States to their old place in the with no conditions except such as would secure a faithful observance of the laws of the United Its first step was the adoption in the several States of the thirteenth The second step was to put an end to the doctrine of se cession by the fourteenth as broad and liberal a proposition in favor of human liberty and human rights as ever was framed by A series of meas ures were then from time to time adopted by among which were the gradual repeal of internal the reduction of the public a system of liberal pensions to Union sol a careful protection and encouragement of American The Pacific railroad was The English Government was compelled to make restitution for the work of its The interest of the debt was enormously re duced by the process of by the resumption of specie our cur rency was placed on a coin This series of solely the work of tho Repub lican rapidly made good the waste war and put the country on the road of unex ampled progress and what spirit was this met by the Democ racy What words can express the crmsl and barbarous atrocity of the controlling elements of the South in their treatment of and and especially the f reedmen who been invested by constitutional amendments with liberty and political rights Taking advantage of the defection of Andrew Johnson and his reconstruction policy they commenced with laws that denied the freed men liberty of and of the and even the personal freedom and protection al lowed by the laws of tho worst powers of Europe to the meanest followed by wholesale assassination of unarmed und undis ciplined negroes inflicted by organized and disguised using all the agencies of terror and superstition that could effect tho mind of an ignorant and credulous with such success that in ten years after the war the reedmen of the South could as a vote whenever tUeir vote would change the result they could hold no and might be cheated and robbed and murdered with This intimidation was in many places extended to white Repub licans of character and among them sonic Confederate who resisted as far as they could these and were branded by opprobrious in some is the basis of their Without

Chicago and Cincinnati under the lead of Mackin und Touscy the criminal classes adopted some of the meanest of the crimes committed n the South to control The Senator defended tho Republican party against tho charge being in it could have prevented the South em by culling attention to tho lact tliat the treasonable inliuouee of the kuklux societies was foil even at Wash and permeated every

limits of tho powers given by the If it has failed in any particular it hag been be it was prevented by tho policy and power of the Democratic party armed with State au In this and by crimes go atro the second rebellion of the Demooratia party is a One duty 1 think the Re publican party not yet that that In States whore it is ascertained that frea and orderly elections for Senators and Repre senttuives in Congress can not be Congress should assert and exercise its unquestioned power to regulate the places and manner ot holding such A vital difference between the two great parties Is shown in their choice of officers und agents to conduct the Tho Re publican party cherished with pride all the great achievements of Union soldiers and all the grand results of the The controlling ele ments of the Democratic party look with preju dice upon Union and do with rare confer upon them place and Ten rebel soldiers aro appointed to office to ono Union More than a majorHy of all the leading officers who represent us in the diplo matic and consular service wore rebel This is ao marked that in every nation to which these gentlemen are accredited they fairly con clude that the rebels and not tho Union cause triumpcd in our late The President has not been free fiom fault in this In his recent letter to tho com mittee inviting him to attend the unvailing of tho Calhoun monument he said ho believes it would be well if all Calhoun und all ha and all his aspirations were bettor known and What would Andrew Jackson have said to such a sentiment as this if uttered In his presence in the name of the Democratic party Nor can it bo said of the President that ha has shown gratitwlo to tho Union or satisfaction for tho success ot the Union or sympathy for the men who exposed their lives for tho preservation of the His innumerable vetoes of private pension his indifference to tho sufferings of invalid and indigent Union soldi ers scattered through Ihe do not indi cate that feeling of gratitude which I bollcvo is universal among all tho loyal people of tho United The Democratic though containing in its ranks many honorable and patriotic is not tho representative of the oyal element of the but is confessedly omposod of the body of adherents to tho bel reenforcd by tho element we bought disloyal iu tho and those who ollow blindly without questioning the memories and aspirations of tho Democratic and the scattered victims of disappoint inevitable in political I do not wish to utter one word to revive tho nimosities of the That was fought out manfully and bravely by tho two contending with such courage to inspire the re pcct of each side for the and to its logl al conclusion of tho complete success of the Jnion All I ask is that the defeated arty will honorably fulfill the terms of their and that the results of the war may C respected and observed with by tho and but with charity and by Union soldiers and For his I appeal alike to Union and Confederato the blue and the that when iassion and prejudice disappear both sides will tand by each other in the improvement and evelopment of our great and united Only one affirmative measure has been pro iosed by the Democratic and that was to educe the surplus in the It was said hat the Republican party was hoarding vast urns of idle money to make times had that hey would scatter it among the The lepublican party has adopted the policy of re eiving gold and silver coin Into the and for the convenience of the people to issuo ertiticates for it which circulated as t has also adopted the policy of maintaining In

success that the bonded lebt was reduced from to and tho interest of Ihe dobt rom to Our Democratic riends in the canvass of 1884 promised to pay utall this idle What was the result A Democratic Secretary kept piling up more die To give him an excuse for doing he changed the form of the debt He excluded the whole mass of fractional sil ercoin from tho count he increased tho bal ance on hand fifty millions more than the Re mblican party had For two years a Democratic House with tlfty ole power on the has been trying to Iind the way to reducp the but uttcr y failed to and now a new

a reat body of the Republican members of tho Senate and and I will join heartily in approval in its just and tirm but now an ingenious way has been found substan tially to get rid of tile law by requiring old and experienced employes to pass a school exam ination to test whether they ought to be re tained or I am afraid such a task would ilean out even so excellent a body as the Illi nois I know it would seriously af fect heads of And now it ia ilaimed that under the demands of our Demo cratic hungry and thirsty after a long more than fourllfths of Republican of not embraced in the CivilService have been changed by the When the Senate politely asked for the cause of re moval he as Jack Falstaff did He would not tell upon In concluding his great speech Sanator Sherman said Let no man be misled into the conclusion that all the vital issues dividing the two parties have been There are many things that lie near to the heart of the American They demand a free a fair count and cor

rascals have they found in What wrong or what peculation have they found in the booksV I can with con fidence and pride say to you that no adminis tration of this or any Government has been more free from fraud or than the Republican Administrations from Lincoln to both The Repub lican party has justified itself in war and in It is the only party in this country that can give you a fraudhating and
