Since that time his history is known to every one. The peculiarity of his common sense has entitled him to tho appellation of “Czar” by bis democratic friends. I bey say lie has violated the parliamentary law of the land which h is been in use for tile last one hundred years. ibis is true, I believe, and yet it is -veil sometimes to depart from old usages. Here in our own state of Iowa the legislature appointed a committee | which revised our laws. We had in our I courts a method of procedure which had been in use a thousand years. The people of Iowa thought it best to depart from the old methods of transacting the business of the country and proceed i simpler manner, ami that code, and no one bas ever j wisdom of the change. That peculiarity of th** speaker of eor.-Kress not being able to see a democratic ; member of congress in his seat and i 01!** b's scat at the same time, has entitled him to the appellation of “Czar.” j Applause.] Many of you have been j in Washington and have seen the ; house of representatives. It is a parello-| gram in shape, longer than it is broad a I very large hall. The speaker's platform I is at one side of this large hall. elevated ! somewhat from the floor, and the seats j of tim members are arranged in a semi-j circle. So that as Speaker Reed sits in 1 his chair with his gavel in his hand ] is able to see the faces of a1! lh* hers that ar*1 before him. the members and seats he had th** them as present. I have an idea that in addition to be-j ing a man remarkable common sense, I he is also a devout Christian. M\ arrival has been so short that I have not I had time to try him on the longer or ; shorter catechism, but I hav that, in his boyhood days Ii some Sabbath school and old book that says that all cast in lakes of fir* when a democratic mom lier of cot gross asked him to say he was present and ab-1 sent at. the same time, he refused to write it down. He had no desire to send these men to hell; he wanted to keep them out of the burning pit, and at the same time, he wanted to keep his country out. Such a man is Speaker Heed. who I have the honor of introducing to you this afternoon.” Mr. Reed spoke as follows: Fellow Citizens:—I thank you your very kindly greeting, which i the more pleasant to me from my home, and I had i put Ii i iii i hat *• be- tre--ti ifs our- cnough to govern isdomof the high-average wisdom of us ail. ie inom-iooking at seeing them in their hardihood of counting an idea ' belonged to read in that liars shall be applause] arui for all as it is so far not hoped to iu a beauty and cynic could have “sday and h* it- and in cl he*1* Dim A little to ga*her for the in ins the at ti orriini -vee ll I es h recept min charm that none but a re-i'ted.

I am also pleased with your greeting, because I think it has in it something mort* than personal feeling: because it seems to me to have something of that faith in popular government, which it has got to lese necessary to have in the I’nited States of America. It seems very strange to be obliged to ^ay that, in the United States of America, there is as much danger of the failure of popular government, a' anywhere. Not a very great danger. I am free to admit—at the same time, no mf,VA    inau«u,..r ami    ..... TZ\    dwr    f^‘ was a perpetual delight.

I haven't any doubt or hesitation on the subject at all. I know that the laws which we all make are better fitted for us all than • aws that were made for us by the areh-angeis •1 applause {—better fitted for us more suitable; and in 'aytug that I d-> not contravene the divine government of the world, because that is tile means of governing tho world which th** best human wisdom of tills day. under divine guidance, has ever been ab!*; to achieve or accomplish. [Applause.] If you do not believe it, look around at this audience. Tell ut** where on the face of the earth, outside of the I'nited States of America, any such audience ran be gathered together—tell me where. I am not now speaking against, the intelligence, against the good sense, of any national ity: I am only saying, where will you find a higher average lev**;, outside of the United States, than you find here? You know you cannot do it. You know that an audience like this is the proof positive of the splendid character of th** American people; because I can 'how you in the United States, this very week, a thousand audiences u t as good as this. {Applause.] It is ail over the country, not in one portion of ii alone: but yon will find them scattered all over the country It is because the diffusion of intelligence is universal. How did we learn the governmental sci—,* th a* we have? Was it by some superior intelligence teaching it to us: or was it, by-practicing the art of government ourselves, that we learned the business’ Fifty year' ago such an audience as this could not be found: fifty year-* ag r the intelligence was not a- gr**at a> it t- ii to-day. Rut, by dint of governing selves, by dint of arguing among selves ail tile great questions, we have got to be intelligent enough to go ahead. we have got to be intelligent enough to grapple th*1 situations of today:    we have got to be intelligent enough to lay the foundations of to-morrow. Hut, in order to carry out our ideas, we must be faithful to the fundamental idea of our government, which is the control of the majority, nobody left out. {Applause.] If you sin against that fundamental principle, you may be sure, in the language of scripture, that your -it find you out. There never ha- bt time when the people of the U re )ur- >ur- is not an honest vote, and that there is not an honest count. And the governor of South Carolina, after declaring publicly, as reported in the Charleston Seen and Courter, in substance that 400,000 men were governing 600,000 men at the ballot box, refused to allow a republican to have a I look at the count or be one of the judges of election, but made every one of them members of his own party. Th** result was that the 4ft0,000 cont!nm d to govern the 600,000. And throughout the south they all admit it—Mr. Henry Watterson, ins eye-, in line frenzy roiling, proclaim' it in the state of Massachusetts. Is it wrong that the United States should know something about the election of th** people that. govern it? The member of eongres' from south Carolina, from Ala bania, from Mississippi, has the same voice in th** house that Governor Gear ha', over your rights and over your property and over your liberty Is there any reason why the citizens of till' Iowa district should not know that tho--'* men ar** honestly elected? One would think, if there wore any honesty left in the world, that men would jump at a chance to refute the calumny, if it, U a calumny, that twenty-six 'eat' are occupied, or wi re occupied at the beginning of lid' congress, by men who hadn't any more right to them than limy had a right to seats in the Rritish house of commons, j Great applause.] Oh, but you say, here is a bill which takes away the liberties of the south. What liberty? the I tiler tv to hones* iv vote? oh, no. Tie* liberty , > stuff ballot boxes? \ es. The liberty to miscount returns? Yes. What remedy does it propose? It proposes 'imply that state officers of th** United States, presumably as honest as any of th** state officers, shall have the right to surper-vise th** election and see that it is fair; and if they and the stat** officers differ, then it goes to the circuit court, and in the fac* and eyes of the whole world the count :s made, and a just decision is returned. Oh, but, they say, it is a force biti. What force? Why, nothing but the fon t* of the United Stat**' of America that is all. What U a law- for? VV liv, it is to be enforced. What U it made for? Why. to be executed. Is then* any reason why a law to '«>eure honest elections should not bo executed? bayonets*. How sensitive some of these gentlemen are about bayonets. J Laughter, j 'i ller** can't be anything in their past history that makes them feel that way. [Laughter.] There are no more bayonets behind the bill for elec-tio* ' than there are behind every law of tie* United States. And every one of them knows it.

At any rate, he thought so. because he would not permit any hearings from anybody: ho didn’t want to learn from anybody else—had it right there. Did you ever consider what a tariff' bill is? Why, it concerns a hundred, possibly two hundred different kinds of business, every on** of which sticks up the life of man. It takes a man hi' lifetime to learn it.
