The citizens. \ the speaker at the outset called 1 attention to the Many peculiarities of the present Campaign such As stand i patters progressives insurgents etc., and declared that he knew of Only one Standard of republicanism and that was the Standard Laid Down by the chicag platform and that he had done his Best i in Good Faith to Aid in carrying out the pledges made by the party in that plat for a. In further defining his own position a Ridge Crumpacker said that he was not a stand Patter As that Prin i Ciple meant stagnation and was of posed to Progress that the Republican party was a progressive party and had a met and solved All the great questions that had come before the american people for Many years past. There i fore or. Crumpacker classed himself with the progressive republicans that was what the Chicago platform stood for and was the True spirit of the pr�s-1 ent Day republicanism. Then the speaker entered upon a i lengthy and comprehensive discussion of the Tariff Law passed by the last Congress and while defending the schedules in the main frankly admitted that it did not altogether suit him that there were some things he would have changed and worked hard to have changed yet As a whole he declared the Bill to be the Best Tariff Bill Ever enacted and probably the Best that Quot could be accomplished without the Aid i of an expert Tariff commission empowered to collect reliable information As to the Cost of production of the various commodities affected.

Or. Crumpacker took the other View arguing that there was much Good in the Bill and that it was better to get half a loaf than none at All. Both did what they thought right and both Are still Loyal to the party. Judge Crumpacker also discussed other important legislation enacted by the last Congress notably the Railroad rate Law and said that this perhaps was the most important Law passed. The judge modestly referred to his own record and to the compliment paid him by the Indiana delegation in endorsing him for speaker of the House. As to his own work for Lake county and the District he pointed to the fact that he had secured appropriations to materially extend the Harbor facilities at Indiana Harbor and Down the grand Calumet $145,000 Federal building at Hammond and $125,000 appropriation for the government building at Gary and valuable pension work in the interest of the old soldiers. He justly urged that he be returned to Congress because of his experience in legislative affairs and his intimate knowledge of the needs of the District. Judge Crumpacker s remarks were freq gently punctured by applause and his speech has been most favourably commented upon.
