Nash a eloquent speech. Facts and figures which prove Republican Good Faith. Striking gains in wages. Ohio a splendid share in the general Prosperity of the nation. Cogent facts on state affairs. The convincing address of the Republican Standard bearer at Akron packed with teeming reasons for continuing republicans in Power. Akron o., sept. 23.�?Hon. George a Nash has Long been known As an Earnest and profound student of Public affairs and his powerful and convincing speech to the tens of thousands of republicans who congregated in Grace Park at the opening rally of the Republican Campaign fully bore out that enviable reputation. In fact judge Nash surprised himself and his speech is a virtual Handiwork of the most convincing facts in support of the Republican cause this year. Compact and concise it is at the same time remarkable for its comprehensive scope and the admirable manner in which it covers All the great issues of the Campaign. Judge Nash was accorded a magnificent demonstration by the immense crowd. The speech in full i3 As follows fellow ult Lzena a in this Campaign the Republican party again asks tin people of Ohio for their approval anti support. This great favor should be graciously and enthusiastically granted. This party deserves such endorsement. The highest and Hest interests of our country demand that it be Given. In i Sikl the people of the United states by an overwhelming popular vote at tile polls and by their voice in the electoral College called the Republican party with its st. Louis platform Hack to the control of the National government. Two and a half years have passed since that Call became effective and now i can congratulate you and we can Felicitated each other upon the fact that every pledge made to the people in st. Louis has been redeemed. At that time the revenues of the government were not Large enough to pay its Ordinary everyday expenses. A loan of millions of dollars had been resorted to for this purpose. Such revenues As were raised by Means of the Tariff were not adjusted so As to properly protect american labor or manufacturers. As a result of tin crude i efforts of the democratic party to transact the business of this government after March 4, Isi financial commercial and Industrial ruin threatened ult. Mckinley a recommendation. To remedy these evils president Mckinley immediately called Congress to meet in extraordinary session on the eleventh Day ofter his inauguration. In his message to that Congress he said a Congress should promptly Correct the existing conditions. Ample Revenue must be supplied not Only for the Ordinary expenses of the government hut for the prompt payment of Liberal pensions and the liquidation of the principal and interest of the Public debt in raising revenues duties should he Leviel upon foreign products so As to preserve the Home Market As far us possible to our own producers to revive and increase manufactories to relieve and encourage agriculture to increase our Domestic and foreign Commerce to did and develop mining and building and to Render to labor in every Field the useful occupation the Liberal wages and the adequate rewards to which skill and Industry Are justly entitled. The necessity of a Tariff Law which shall provide ample Revenue need not he further urged. The imperative demand of the hour is the prompt enactment of such a measure and to this object i earnestly recommend that Congress shun Muke every in response to this Earnest advice of Tho president the Dingley Tariff Law was substituted for the Wilson Tariff Law on july 24, i Sot. This legislation was speedily enacted is it was completed in less than five months after the inauguration of president Mckinley. In this there was great Benefit from the fact that the country was not kept in a state of uncertainty for an unnecessary period of time. It required More than la months for president Cleveland and a democratic Congress to revise the Tariff Laws in accordance with their notions and during All this Long dreary suspense the people Aud business suffered. The Republican Turrill a Success. That the new Tariff Law is a Success As producer of Revenue is apparent from the fact that in the first two years of its ufos it brought to the Treasury of the United states the sum of $357,332,769, while Dur Pense in the inst two years without taking Imo consideration what Are known As War taxes Aion 142,000,000 have come into the United states Treasury from this source. The government receives Large sums of Money Trout miscellaneous sources other than customs my internal Revenue. Her actual receipts during the two years ending june 30 Hist amounted to $021,281,033.38. This did not include Money borrowed on recount of the necessities of the Spanish tear. During the same period the expenditures i mounted to f. I ,440,7 11.�,3. There was in excess of expenses Over receipts of $127,-108,800.27. In this outgo there were More than $280,000,000 on account of the War with Spain. Without this War there would have been no need for War taxes no necessity for borrowing Money and the pledge of the Republican party to provide Money enough to meet the expenses of the government and pay its interest would have been kept and $30,000,000 applied to the reduction of the Public debt. Benefits to american manufacturers. The new Tariff Law has been beneficial to american manufacturers. This is shown by the fact that during the last two years the importation of foreign manufactured articles have amounted articles has amounted to the sum of $206,000,000, while in the two years preceding they were Worth $279,600.00. The new Law has operated to exclude manufactured articles to the amount of nearly $73,000,000, and thus enlarged for ourselves the Home Market to this extent. It was claimed against the new Tariff Law that it would exclude from this country the crude articles necessary for by american manufacturers and for the Wilson Tariff with its a free raw material theory that it would facilitate the Intro duet on of these articles. Actual trial and experience have exploded this theory As they have so Many others of democratic origin. During the first two years of the Wilson Law the value of these articles amounted to Only $400,000,000. Under the new Tariff Law they were of the value of $423,000,000. A false claim. It it As claimed As an argument against the new Tariff Law that its enactment would damage american Trade abroad and would result Iii a reduction in purchases by other countries from us. It is wonderful How a Little actual experience has destroyed this cherished democratic theory. During the first two years of the Wilson Law the value of american products sold to foreign nations was $1,600,000,000. During the two years ending on june 30 last it was $2,439,000,000, an increase of 40 per cent or $769,000,000. The value of manufactured articles sold to other countries in the two years first referred to was about $412,000,000, and in the last two years it was $629,000,000. Benefits to Ohio industries. Among the great industries in which Ohio producers Are especially interested Are Wool and the manufacture of Iron and steel. Under democratic free Trade the annual value of imported Wool Rose to the vast sum of $33,000,000. These importations fell in 1s9s to $16,7n0, and in 1899 to $8.-200.000. In 1s97 the importations of Woolen goods amounted in value to $49,100,000, but in 1898 they fell in value to $14,son,non, and in 1899 to $13,Roo,. Under the influence it it Tho Wilson Tariff the sheep in Ohio decreased from 3,887, he in 1892 to 2,122.000 in 1897. With the new Tariff Law the locks began to increase and now number More than 2,300,non. The Price of xxx Merino washed Ohio Wool was in june i Stihi 17 j cents per Pound now la is 34 cents. The exports of Iron and steel from this country in 1893 and 1890 amounted in value to about $73,,, hut during the last two years they were of the value of $164,000,000. Under the Wilson Law the importations of Iron Aud steel in two years were of Tim value of $48,000,000. In the last two years they were of the value of Only $24,000,000. Thus the Market for our Iron and steel manufactures has been increased at Home and abroad. What wonder is it Flint our furnaces Are ablaze both night and Day and that the men Are overworked sound Money again the Issue. The Republican party in National convention at st. Louis in 1896 declared itself to la unreservedly for sound Money and unalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase our currency or impair the credit of our country. Upon the Oiler hand the democratic party at Chicago demanded the free and unrestricted coinage of Sliver and Gold at the ratio of 16 to i. From the time this Issue was joined until the Victory was won in november 96, the adherents of the Republican party carried on nit unrelenting warfare in behalf of a sound currency. From that Day to this it his successfully resisted All efforts to debase our currency or impair the credit of the country. Aii our Silver and paper currency has been maintained at parity with Gold. The Faith pledged at st. Louis has been kept. Falsity of Democrat it logic. The lapse of time has shown the falsity of All the reasoning presented by the representatives of the democratic party in 181 st. They told us that the United states did not have sufficient currency Aud that the currency would not he Large enough without free coinage it the favorite ratio. We have not had free coinage but the amount of currency has been increased. July a 1896, it amounted to $1,306,434,966. July i. 1899. It was $1,932,484,339. The per capita of circulation has grown from $21.18 to $23.38, the prophesied that wheat and other agricultural products would never again become valuable without the Silver ratio of its to i. Rut they have. They pointed out that the Way to Start the wheels in the Mills which they had silenced was to adopt their Silver fallacy. It was not done Ami yet our manufactories were never so Busy As now. They bewailed the cruel Fate of the Idle and hungry men women and children who were everywhere to be found and then prescribed the free and unrestricted coinage of Silver at 16 to i for their ills. Their nostrum was not taken but the Idle and hungry Are no longer to he found. If the Republican party has no better title than tin change which has taken place Iii the last three years it la entitled to a warranty deed for the gratitude of this nation. Property built on a sound currency. In March 1897, we were at the lowest ebb in financial Industrial and commercial ruin. Now we Are on the top wave of a Prosperity never before equalled. Much of this great gain to our country is attributable to the restoration of ii Tariff Law so fashioned As to tie beneficial to american interests alone. Rot much More lug the first two years the Wilson Tariff aft a i Quot Quot 7 Quot 11 Law was in operation it raised the smaller in Dut a he a a a a a of 311 oat 428 do rim the first veer american people to maintain inviolate and aum of $315,667,428. During the first year Iho Revenue produced by the new Tariff amounted to Only about $148,000,000, while in the second year ending on june 30, 1899, it amounted to about $209,000,000. Tho importations in the first year were Small owing to excessive imports the previous year in anticipation of higher Tariff. The second year shows that under Ordinary circumstances the new Law will produce ample Revenue. In addition to custom duties the government receives Money from the internal Revenue with Width to pay its Ordinary sex forever a sound and honest financial policy in this land. A it the election of ism Confidence was restored in the financial integrity of the people of Tim United stat. Lie Nee those who e intruded capital were willing to let ii Atun seek investment in railroads manuf act res and com Merci. The unemployed or no longer Idle. Those who worked Only one half time and Fot half pay Are now reaping a full Harvest. Rut the leaders of the democratic party can not Sec an improved condition of affairs. They do not observe the smoke from every Chimney in our factories. They no not see the Busy workmen As they come and go from their tasks in the morning and the evening. The fact that Over 4.000 Miles of railroads have been built in this country within the last year has no Sig no Leanee to them. In june 1s98, there were 90.00. Employees in the railway service in excess of the number in june 1893, and in 18\�, a gum larger by $30,, was paid to these employees than the amount paid the previous year. Forty five railroads were taken out of receivers hands in one year and the earnings of railroads increased by More than $123... L laity facts from Ohio factories. Right Here in Ohio Ito manufacturing plants i the cities of Cleveland Columbus Akron Youngstown. Dayton Springfield Hamilton Alliance Marietta Canton and Massillon paid to their employees the sum of $2,412,879.05 in june 1899. The same factories in june 1896, paid their employees $1,468,084.32, an increase in favor of june 1899, of $944,794.73, or More than 64 per cent. My Home City of Columbus through 13 of its factories paid to employees in june 1896, $88, ski As against $172,000 in june 1899. Your City of Akron through 12 plants paid to employees in june 1s96, $77,000, and in june 1899, $129,000. In the City of Dayton 13 factories had. In june 1896, 3,977 employees As against 5,926 in june 1899. The Dayton employee was paid an average compensation of $43.22 last june As against $38.23 in june 1896. So it is everywhere a greater number of people employed better compensation. And yet the Blind leaders of a decaying democracy can not see that better times have come to make Happy All our people. Democracy still Blind. Again in the year 1899, at Zanesville the Ohio democracy continues to demand a the free unlimited coinage of Silver and Gold As equal in primary Money at the rate of to to the great majority of our people declared against this theory in 1806. There is not an apparent reason in the wide world Why this verdict should he reversed. There Art Many reasons Why it should he affirmed. Every Man who voted with the Republican party in 1896, having in View the Hest interests of the country must do so again in 1819. Now the logic of 1816 has been reinforced by the Light of experience. Confidence came to our Rescue in 1896 and 1897 when the fruits of Victory became evident. Even then Many did not think the decision emphatic enough. They feared what they called the a instability of the american again the democracy of Ohio has declared in favor of this financial heresy. This is done in the state of president Mckinley. If Hilo in november should take a step backward on this question who can foresee the harm that will he done it will open up the question again As a National Issue. A Aitt we will he in financial doubt and uncertainty. The Sun of Prosperity will again he hidden by the Clouds of adversity. But this will not happen. The people of Ohio Are an intelligent people. Her fumes her Labouring men her merchants and her manufacturers will not go Back to the a Slough of despond through which we struggled for four unhappy years. Foreign Trade and Commerce. There is another very important matter with which the Republican party and us policies have had much to do in the last two and one half years. Our foreign markets have been enlarged and our foreign Emmer a has been increased. We believe this to be absolutely necessary for the present and the future Prosperity of the country. Our agricultural products owing to tie Fertility of our soil. And the skill and Industry of those who till it have become so great that we can no longer consume them at Home. The output from american factories is so immense that we eau no longer sell the things we make at Home. Without a great foreign Market our farm products and farm lands would la of but Little value of we could not sell our manufactured articles in foreign lands our factories would again be ii in or la a state of almost hopeless inactivity. During the two years ending june 30. 1899. Our exports have been of the value of $2,438,087,746. During the same period we have purchased from foreign nations articles of the value of $1,313,156,308. Tin balance of Trade has been in our favor by the sum of $1,143,321,230. This Means that daring each Day we have lived in the last two years the Gold of other nations has come to our shores at the rate of More than a million and a half of dollars. Whether we have been awake or Aslee the ceaseless and noiseless flow has Kep on and each hour has found us Richer by $03,000. And still the Stream Broadens and increases in strength. Last july the value of our exports was $94,000, mix As against $72,000,000 in july 1898. In August they were $105,000,000 As against $84,-000,000 in August of last year. The value of the products from the land in this country last year is estimated to in about $2,300,000,000. Almost one third of these products amounting in value of $783,-000,000, was sold to other nations. What would they have been Worth had we not possessed a foreign Market in 1898 we exported manufactured articles of the value of $200,00.900. Rills year exports increased to $338,000,0>0. Who can estimate the Benefit these foreign sales have been to the languishing industries of America tile Pulley of the Republican party is to strengthen and make larger this foreign Market for our goods. It is very much in Earnest about this matter. We Are just As zealous in this cause As we Ever were in in Vang our Home Market for americans. This we propose to do even if it requires that governmental assistance shall be Given to our shipping so that our wares May sail the world Over under our own Flag. This we will do even if it involves Tho construction of the nicaraguan canal by our government. This we will do even if it demands that our Flag shall never in hauled Down Iii islands lawfully acquired by the valor of our soldiers Ami sailors. Democratic i Oslo Cecily. The makers of the Zanesville platform in formed a waiting world that they a stand in line with Washington Jefferson Jackson Lincoln Grunt and All other american patriots living and this is Good news. I can in my Short ufos remember when these gentlemen called Lincoln a rail splitter a Baboon and a tyrant. I can recall the time when rant was the subject of heir choicest epithets. He too was denounced As an imperialist who was about tied in the army and convert lie Republic into an Empire. I no glad that these gentlemen now recognize Lincoln aul Grant As patriots by whose sides they desire to stand. Their trouble i that they never recognize the splendid qualities which it takes to make a Good Republican until he is dead i would not he surprised that if in tin they will find out what a disinterested Patriot Wuu then they will set him Washington and Lincoln try to climb up there the they bravely shouted at Zanesville a Wear radically and unalterably opposed to imperialism in the United who in the world is it favor of it imperialism is the Power authority or character of an emperor. I know of no imperialist in this Broad land. I know of no Man in it who desires to change the spirit or character of this great Republic As it was handed Down to us by our fathers. Even those who believe that it is a 1st policy to retain Possession of the Luanda which have come to i Mckinley is along Side of and Grant and elves. Osas a part of the Victory which we won Over Spain do not wish to establish an Empire in them or anything Akin to an Empire. All they desire is to carry to their inhabitants the same enlightenment Aud the same civilization which we enjoy. When they Are or pared for it it is proposed when Congress shall act to give them a government free in character and gear no teeing to them the sacred rights which we Chol ish. What is All this fuss about what has caused All this Hue Aud cry about expansion and imperialism the War with Spain. To the Spring of 1898 we were compelled to engage in War with Spain. The grounds which justified it As stated by president Mckinley were a the interest of humanity the duty to protect the life and property of our citizens in Cuba the right to Cheek injury to our Commerce and people through the devastation of the Island Ami the need of removing at once and forever the Eon Stant menace and burdens entailed upon our government by the uncertainties and perils of the situation caused by the unendurable disturbances in for these reasons lie asked Congress to authorize and empower the president a to take measures to secure a full and final termination of hostilities Between Spain and the people it of Cuba and to secure in the Island the establishment of a stable government Cap. Hie of maintaining order and preserving its International obligations insuring peace and Tranquillity and the Security of its citizens As Well As our own and for the accomplishment of these ends to the military and naval forces of the United states As might be in response to this request of the president Congress after conference on the 19th of april by a vote of 42 to 35 in the Senate and 311 to 6 in the House of representatives passed a joint Resolution declaring a a first that the people of the Island of Cuba Are and of right ought to he free and Independent. A a second that it Luthc duty of the United states to demand and the government of the United states Loos hereby demand that the government of Spain at once relinquish its authority and government in the Island of Cuba and withdraw its land and naval forces from Cuba and cuban Waters. A a third that the president of the United states he and he hereby is directed and pm j powered to the entire land and naval forces of the United states and to Call into actual service of the United states the militia of the several states to such extent As May he necessary to carry these resolutions into effect. A a fourth that the United states hereby disclaims any disposition or intention to exercise sovereignty or control Over said Island of Cut for the pacification Theoff and asserts its determination when thai is accomplished to leave the government and control of the Island to its this Resolution was approved by the of. Cut Leo on the 20th Day of april. 1898, and a copy was communicated to the Spanish minister and to the government of Spain with a formal demand that it at once relinquish its authority in the Island of Cuba and withdraw its forces therefrom. By these acts War became inevitable tin the 23th Day of april Congress was informed of tin situation and the president recommended a formal declaration of the existence of a state of War Between the United states and Spain. The Congress accordingly voted on the same Day an act declaring the existence of such War from and including the 21st Day of april and re enacted the provision of the Resolution of april 2, directing the president to asian the armed forces of the nation to carry that aet into effect. I list ice of the Spanish War. It was a just War entered into by Tik joint act of the president and the Congress each exercising his and its constitutional prerogatives and fully approved by the sentiment of the people of the United states. It was a situation which had been threatened for months. Tin people and the Congress had clamoured for decisive action on the part of tin president Long before this time and none had been More clamorous than tin democratic members of Congress. The president knew the unprepared condition of the country for War and he fully realized that this nation would not he justified ii the eyes of humanity or tin world in making War until All efforts to secure a redress of grievances by peaceful Means had been exhausted. During this delay and for weeks prior to the 20th of april every Effort was made to place the country in a condition to meet the storm which threatened. When it did come nod the country found itself engaged in deadly conflict with a foreign enemy we had a Navy in splendid condition and fully prepared for the emergency. Every nerve was then strained to recruit the army and place it upon a War footing. The regular army was increased to the full limit authorized by Law Aud Calls were made for 23, volunteers. To Les Post of the country was most patriotic Ami the ranks of the army were speedily filled by Young men who were anxious to deft my the Honor of our Flag. A herculean task. The task which confronted the president was herculean but in seized hold of it with an Energy and with an ability Pic a were most admirable. He knew no rest Day or night until the War ended. An army of 230,1ss men was organized armed and equipped and supplied with subsistence in an incredibly Short period of time. The great Victory of Dewey which for dash bravery and Complete Success outshone All other naval achievements in history ushered in the month of May and destroyed the Spanish Fleet in Manilla Hay. In the first Days of july were recorded the victories of our Brave arum skillful soldiers at Elcaney and Sun Juan. One of the bravest and most skillful soldiers of that Gallant army governor Roosevelt is on the platform today Aud i desire that you Here and now show your appreciation of his great service to our country by giving Birn three of the loudest cheers Ever heard la the state of Ohio. Loud and prolonged cheering splendid record of our forces. We had hardly realized that a great vie tory had been won by our army before the news came from Ververa s Fleet was at the Bottom of the sea off Hunt ago a victim of the skill Aud bravery of our sailors guided and directed by the most efficient naval commanders. In less than Loo Days the Power of proud and arrogant Spain was broken and she was at the feet of the Republic. Most Complete Success Bud been secured. We can not give too much credit to our soldiers and sailors and the splendid officers who commanded them. Hut tin people should not forget and do not that behind them All with anxious heart and interim. Upon tin it is his steady nerve guiding every movement i stood the commander in chief of the army and the n Ivy the preside to of the United j states the great son of Ohio William Mckinley. Gres applause flu treaty of fear. Speedily following these great victories came Ait armistice for the purpose of Lego a hating a treaty of peace with our fallen i foe. For conducting these negotiations on i i he part of the United 8ia�?~s, five As prudent As Learned mid As patriotic men were chosen by the president As could be found in All the land these commissioners were a into Vii red to meet with the commissioners to he appointed on behalf of Spain and to negotiate and sign a treaty of peace be tween the unite states and Spain subject to the ratification of their government. They met the commissioners of Spain in Paris and after Long and careful thought mid consideration tilt commissioners of the two countries on the loth Day of december Isis signed a treaty of peace which did not become effective until ratified by the Senate of the United states and the government of Spain. By this treaty Spain relinquished All claim to sovereignty Over the title of Cuba. She also ceded to Tho United states tin Island of Porto Hico and other islands in the West indies under Spanish snot a the Island of Guam or the lad Roncs in tin Marianas and also the archipelago known As the philippine Isla lids. This treaty was duly submitted to Tho Senate of Tho United states Anil was duly ratified by a two thirds vote on the 6th Day of february 1899. Shortly thereafter it was ratified by the government of Spain and thus became effective. The duties of peace. Peace was restored Between Spain and the United states but new Ulm important duties were placed upon our government. Porto Rico and the philippine islands came under the Protection of the United states. In the meantime and while the ratification of the treaty was pending a portion of the inhabitants of one of the philippine islands led by Aguinaldo commenced War upon the army of Tho United states which was occupying and protecting the territory conquered from Spain. It will to observed that in this treaty Spain simply relinquished Lier sovereignty Over Cuba and did not cede the Island to the United states. Rills provision was made so that it might he apparent to everyone that the United states did not have any ills Billon or intention to exercise sovereignty jurisdiction or control Over said Island after its people had formed a stable government and that the Faith of the country As pledged in the resolutions adopted by the Senate would be kept. In the Case of the philippine islands and Porto Rico the situation is different. These islands became possessions of the United states under Tho treaty. They were ceded to the United states in consideration of the great damage which had been done to her and in part payment of the expenses which she had been put to by the War. It is clearly tin duty of Congress to determine How these islands shall he governed and what shall by Dom with them. Sin rely after the treaty of Pence was ratified and without considering these questions Congress adjourned. In this it acted wisely for these questions Are of the very greatest importance to this nation and their proper determination of very great moment. The presidents duty in the in the meantime a duty rests president of the United states. Imperative duty to preserve in these islands Pence and Good order to protect the lives Ulm property of our own citizens the lives Anil property of the inhabitants thereof and the lives and property of the citizens of other nations living therein. It is time for Congress to determine what course to take when Pence Ami order have been re Terami All have acknowledged the sovereignty of the Uniti a states. I have opinions As to what Congress should do but they Are of no More importance than those of any other citizen and i refrain at this time from detaining you with them. Cautious democratic opposition. I have hastily sketched the events of the last year Ami one half because it is concerning these tiling that those now in control of the democratic party raise the false cry of i have done it because i want you to know How Little foundation there is for tills Dis . If the government Hail done other than what it has done these gentlemen would have denounced it with still greater vehemence but with right upon their Side in the exigencies of a political Campaign they Are always ready to denounce a Republican administration whether it has been right or i wrong. When these necessities have passed away they will acknowledge As they have Dom since the civil War that everything accomplished was for tin Hest interests of our country. Then they will Point out William Mckinley As they now do Abraham Lincoln As a Patriot and statesman Nurul plead with the future generations of republicans to follow the teachings Ami us a vice of Mckinley As they now ask us to never forget the example of the immortal Lincoln. Trusts Ami a . Within the last few years Many of the business men of this country have consolidated their great interests into corporation Ami combination which arc popularly known As tin men who conduct our manufacture Trade and Commerce Are generally intelligent far seeing citizens with a patriotism equal to that of any other lass of citizens. I urn very loth to believe that these men would knowingly do anything that will he detrimental to the country or to their follow Cut Lacna. It is i trite however that there Are things connected with these new organizations which i require regulation by Law in order to prevent evils which May arise. These evils i have been denounced by both the Republican and democratic parties in Ohio in i state convention. So far the two parties stand upon an Equality. In another respect the Republican party has no advantage in the fact that the Bevent it Iii re general Assembly passed a stringent Law Well calculated to prevent evils Ami that an attorney general elected by the Republican party has been diligent in his efforts to enforce the Law. New and Wise i. Leg la iou required. Undoubtedly new and careful and Wise legislation will be required both upon the part of Congress Ami state Legislatures to regulate Anil prevent evils which May emanate from Large corporations. Ruch legislation we it an safely entrust to the men of the Republican party. In All time Pat 1 they have shown themselves More capable than the men placed Iii Congress and in our Legislatures by the democratic party. On the 20th of july ls.i7. I bad the Honor i of delivering an address before the state bar association of Ohio in which i Dis cussed to some extent the Laws of Ohio regulating corporations. I then said a corporations May in created in Ohio for any purpose for which individuals May lawfully associate themselves except for carrying on professional business. These bodies except insurance companies Railroad Compaq a building and loan associations and certain Hanking companies a practically under no restraint by the state Ami make no reports to her officers.

This report should show among other things How much of the capital Stock has been i nid How the Money is invested what Tho a sets arc the amount of liabilities and the names of the stockholders. In fact there should be such a record of every corporation that the Public May know at All times whether it is worthy of credit and Confidence.

In return for these benefits they should he willing that thir transactions to an open Hook so that we May know what they a and who they Are. This much they owe the state. This much the stat ought to in lure from them because they Are her creatures Ami so has Given them her approval of these regulations had exist in the past our Commonwealth would Hare been strewn with fewer corporate ruins and her people would my mourn the loss of so Many millions of dollars invested in worthless concerns hearing the commission of the state to do business.

I the Day succeeding the democratic state convention Hon. John la. Mclean the Nomine of that convention for governor reached Cincinnati. If a was away from tin excitement of a fierce conflict and had had Tim to read and consider the platform upon which to was to stand. Ile is a Man of intelligence Ami experience. As the owner of a newspaper in Man is better Ald than he to detect the trend of Public sentiment. La saw at once the weakness of the Structure which had has a built for him. Thereupon he published in u newspaper what seemed to he an authorized interview. In this he said a this however is a state Campaign and state issues must not i overlooked. No questions Are of greater interest to the people of this shiite than tints which effect the business administration it if the state county Aud municipal affairs. A a a they want a Campaign on National Issue alone. We want one on All.

Mclean realized the danger lurking in the Zanesville declaration Aud sought anxiously to create something new upon which to stand. I Fen i or m t in i Sill allurement. We Welcome an investigation of the manner in which the business of the state o dido has been conducted sin january 1892 first by Mckinley and second by Gobi Rizor Bushnell. When we at that time took Possession of the state government there Vns found to he existing in state affairs the Sam trouble that existed in National affairs from March 1893, until March 1897.

The Genera Revenue fund of the state. Substantial Republican showing. When the republicans of Ohio on the second monday of Jana by 1892, again took Possession of the affairs of Ohio and undertook the transaction of her business they immediately set a lain t devising ways and Means with which to meet the Ordinary expenses of the state government. This work has been admirably Don by the administrations of governors Mckinley and Bushnell. Ample revenues have been raised with which to meet nil expenses and this too without increasing the rate of taxation for state purposes upon Teal and personal property. At the close of the fiscal year ending nov. 13, 1898, the Cash balance to the credit of the general Revenue fund was $594,000.26, and All obligations had been paid. When William Mckinley was inaugurated As governor Iii january 1892, the state debt of Ohio was $2,291,665.
