It is no slight matter to Yon men new York you the people the sea a Here that so great a state As in Liana so Rich so populous situated Midway among the states is firmly fixed in a Vor the great principles frae government and perpetual Union. What shall i say the general result Afler speaking Indiana let me first finish about Indiana. She has elected the electors president and vice president the unit so states. She has chosen a democratic governor nine congressmen out thirteen a Large majority in each Branch the Leibia Ture unus Nelly Large securing the return to the United states Senate our faithful representative Daniel i Yoo bees she bag Elcid tie entire site Pickei and attached to the democratic cause Many counties the by Ite so that the a Reat state Indiana today and for the in tire is democratic. I do not join you to night for any purpose rejoicing Over the Falt i our opponents. It is Congh to is now that they have fallen. Laughter and cheers 1 join you to rejoice Bot that their Flag has been trailed in the dust but that ours flies in Triumph Over the land not that they suffer the pangs disappointment and Fleat but that we the representatives democracy the politics the i people Are successful. This is no Ordinary Triumph it is Seoi ally great. Vie have overcome not Only the voters that opposed us in politics Bat we have overcome the influence and the Power the largest official organization almost Ever known in the world. A Hundred and Twenty regiments officeholders have been 31. 11 a Field in this political contest and they to 0 have not been sufi client to carry the Day in favor their party i rence Mith you my countrymen Brooklyn be Cense a party has come into Power it last in Invar the people s government. I rejoice with you that there has been found a party attached and held together alone by their love Liberty for Twenty five years. Cheers one Quarter a Century the democratic party has suffered Only defeat and after that Long period constant defeat it has a a sieved the greatest Victory its existence. Cheers such a party can not be otherwise than useful to the country so devoted to what it Bel Eves right and True and can not fail to be sir Tice to this great country in the future and r a countrymen to you men Brooklyn it is a consideration great importance that responsibility rests largely upon you As is upon tvs out in the West that this party shall Bear itself in Ite period Triumph and Success whether it shall be As grand in the Day Success As it has been patient and Wise and faithful in the hours defeat. Great cheering. It is to me a source the greatest pleasure to meet you my fellow citizens Brooklyn who like Connecticut and Massachusetts have followed the teachings Thomas Jefferson and the great democratic party. But i am also err that after the result an Atiemo thas been made to infuse into the minds our coloured voters that the Success the Dema a tragic party meant the destruction the fights Aud privileges Exour coloured voters. This is a great wrong. My fellow citizens As a free and Independent voter the coloured voter entered the democratic ranks and As a free and ind indent voter he will remain under its Broad Banner and principles we have been for the last Quarter a Century Suiter Fig with great patience the rebuffs the party in Power with the statement that we were not fit to be trusted but the 4tb Day this month millions our be Low countrymen declared we Are to be trusted. The name that they who were our opponents delighted to Call us Quot old Bourbon party Quot a Aye i accept the name it was a French name Given to that race who bought for Light it and the Independent Republican party and to those the ministry the gospel and the other great professions who have stood by our Side in the hour i trial. I know year after year that the truth i is mighty and must prevail. Yes the i truth has prevailed. I will again repeat it it has prevailed. The peo pie the United states have taken up the great question Reform in each and every department. It does not mean that the change has taken place Means the destruction our institutions a change in the administration the government. Yes there will be a change but no destruction when the democratic party took hold Cleveland and Hendricks it was likened to the cry the traveler in the Sledge who was followed by the wolves. But Cleveland and Hendricks came out the Battle better than the traveler and i am ashamed to say that the Campaign just closed was certainly the most remarkable i Eyer took part in for calumny and falsehood. But i knew when i heard All this going round that it would not Avail and i did not go out my Way to say one word but just let matters take their course in Indiana. And so it came out All right. I do not wish to speak in tones disparagement those who must feel the pangs defeat but 1 will ask there publican party who gave them Fiu Hority to sit in judgment the party the people and say that it was not Safe to Trust the government into our hands. This my fellow citizens has been answered by the voice the people the Empire state As Well As the other states in no unmistakable terms. Let us be patient now a the hour Triumph As we have been in the Long years waiting. We they Tell us will be responsible for the future the great country. Yes and we accept the great responsibility that will bring peace and Good government to the people the United states. Cheers it was god that gave a the Power to set this great lesson a lesson that we must abide by and a lesson that i ii Ope the Lle publican party will not soon forget that the great work commenced and carried out by the people the United states the 4th november last a when the democratic party was once More placed in ?7er, Means Noth ing More less than it 9 in people by the people and for the people. Of you will see a very great change after the 4th next March when president Grever Cleveland takes his heat at Washington. It has been decided by the people thai Tiberii Ball be Reform in the govern meat executive Reform so that All the Laws shall receive their met and prop a traction itt la a that shall bring blessings upon the common people upon labor As Well As upon capital cods Trucmon that will a in accordance with the True intent and meaning the legislators that there shall be administrative Reform so that there shall be no longer any in Bilty to can y the mails across the country without loss to the Public Treasury cheers so that there shall be honesty in All the departments the government. Do Ycu ask me it 1 am in favor civil service Reform course i am in favor civil service Reform i am not in favor a continuation so Many things that we have seen for some years that Are past. People Are tired it and they want a change. Do Deaire to Knour from me what civil service i have confide Noa in i am very free to say to Yon people to night that i am not particularly confident Success after a schoolmaster s examination but 1 will Tell you what i have Confidence in. As it was in the Days Andrew Jackson let a True Man come to be president the United states and lot True men be called around him to Aid him in the Public service end let these men resolve that the Only test qualification for Bce under them shall be honesty and fitness for the service and Yoa have civil service Reform. Cheers this great contest has established it in this country that there must be Revenue Reform. In Bis Melsape december 1882, president Arthur informed Congress and the country that the revenues the country exceeded by a Hundred million dollars the wants the administration economically administered. A slight Reform was made the next March thereafter but after that your defunct judge folgers honoured be his name he is dead now but in his last report to Congress when a lived he declared the present revenues exceeded the wants the government by 85,c00,00q a year and that is the last record the object. Eighty five millions dollars in excess the needs a economically administered government. Now my Coua Drymen to you men Brooklyn to you a a a re Bftts to you business Man. To you Labouring men to Yon skilled Mech Ivanica i ask you what is the Standard by which the government shall be regulated in the taxation the people president Arthur expressed it As Well As i am Able to express it he said that the Only Standard should a the needs the government economically administered. But Secretary Ger in his last report to Oon refs said the question now presses us Quot what legislation will relieve the people the burdens Unn Ecea sary taxation Quot Aye it is a Burden and it presses hard when it is $85,0u0,000 a year. How much would 185,000,000 do for the country if taxation were reduced wisely and judiciously so As to leave in the pockets the people end in the channels Trade the �85,000,000 every year How much would it contribute to the Enterprise the Industry the Prosperity the country How much would it bless labor and stimulate capital Here a murmuring noise in the direction the Entrance door grew so loud that . Hendricks paused and asked for somebody s interference in the interest silence. The remarks produced instant silence continuing Bis address he said the ques Tion is what a the position the demo cratic party upon taxation i know no Standard taxation except that taxes shall not exceed the needs the government economically administered. If you know any better and safer Standard taxation what is it at the convention in Chicago the will the democracy this great nation was expressed in a few sentences. A Resolution taxation was adopted. Of course that re solution related mainly to the Tariff Law and now if you please to give me your attention i will state what the democratic Parky at that convention declared. It a expressed in for propositions first taxation shall not exceed the needs the government economically and Mills tired. That is borrowed from . Arthur pc a Condo taxation shall Only be for Public purposes and not for private gain and spec Ula Jpn. Trarop in the adjustment the taxes care shall be taken not to Hurt labor nor to harm capital. Fourth taxation shall be heaviest upon articles luxury and lightest upon articles necessity. There four propositions my countrymen express the entire democratic doctrine the subject taxation nay i repeat it that we Hal have no misunderstanding about it he repeated the Foar proposition word for word As above and when that great convention at Chicho adopted that platform it wrote it in letters Silver a rightness its Banner and that Banner it banded to Grover Cleveland and Thomas a. Hendricks Quot and they said Quot this is the Banner carry it out before tue people and stand fall by the cheers that Banner has been carried before Tae indomitable democrats Indiana. In Triumph it Waves to Day in Triumph it asserts to the american people everywhere that taxation shall Only be for Public purposes and Only to the extent the needs the government. It shall be organized so As not to Hurt labor Barm capital. It shall be heaviest articles luxury and lightest articles necessity. They say the Tariff is a very diff cult thing to understand. I think it is difficult for these who wish to make it difficult and to impose somewhat upon the country. To me it is very Plain for it a written in thobe four sentences it shall be for the needs the government it shall be adjusted so As not to Hurt capital nor harm labor and it shall be heaviest upon articles luxury and lightest upon articles necessity and now my countrymen if there be a to to that sentiment democracy let him Rise up and say it. Now is the time to say it As they say at Church forever thereafter hold your peace. Let me repeat it and then Yon make your objection if you choose each sentence by itself pronouncing again the four sentences relative to taxation and pausing for Reoly at the end each a entente. Is it possible lie continued that a convention the people consisting so Many delegates has bees Able to pass upon that difficult question Tariff so As to express itself so that every Man woman and child in so Large and intelligent an audience As this is compelled to say. Quot that s right Quot it is uncommon endorsement a convention and after this you won t blame me much for being a whole souled Democrat will Yon if a party is so clearly right upon the subject taxation one the Hig beit Powers the government it can not be wrong upon anything else. Taxation comes to a Man s Home and takes for Public use thai which was his a his no longer like the Law eminent Domain that takes private prop Perty for Public use. Like the Law the government that says to the Young Man in the bosom Bis family Quot War has come and Yoa must nerve in the army Quot this Power taxation is one the most tremendous that the government composes exercises and Dow when i Bave submitted sentence by sentence and in detail to this great audience the sentiment is that for once do a to racy May be trusted. So Ipri in if to Ovsa but Cleveland shill a Call Congress together the my Cut no by will commence not to destroy but to remove objections did you know the Lle publican Chicago platform the Tariff Sawert pledged i Feii to Reform in the Tariff so As to remove its inequalities and Reform Ita excess they pledged themselves to Reform their own work. Since the War there has been no democratic Secretary the Treasury All being in the control the la publicans and Bow at the end Twenty Yaar thy say to their country men Quot our legislation taxing you is not equal. It produces excess Revenue and we pledge you to Reform it is too late now and the time for repentance is not passed but time for Good work is now passed. How is it that the subject taxation the Lle publican parly has dared to come before the great elements Power in this country. New York City Brooklyn City and admit that taxation is unequal the language their a platform admits it is heavier do one Man than another one class and interest than another Quot will you be Good enough to Tell me what greater offence a political party in Power can perpetrate than the making an unequal tax Law As Well might the government in time War ask your son to serve two years and Dur neighbor s Eon four years As Well might government demand your private property without Jufith compensation and make compensation to your neighbor for property taken under like Circum Stancea Bat no we Munct have Equality taxation and the mania going in that s going to have it that Way. The Republican party demand that the Navy shall be restored. Quot Well Don t you think that a a very queer request for a party to make itself senator Bayard cheers was speaking in new York at a meeting not Long since he stated that from 1865 to 1880 the construction and the repairing the Navy Cost the people the United states Over four Hundred million dollars. Yet if we believe the new York Tribune we have no Navy. But As it Only costs about one million to build a Man War we ought to have 400 ships at that rate. Bat three four weeks ego we had a Navy. It waa called the Tallapoosa. It was no doubt a very poor one for it could not fight and it could not ran away. It was merely a Navy for pleasure Cailing Bround with Sone the Heads that department. We Ion one these excursions this Navy Onra came in collision with a sailing ship and went Down to the Bottom ibo sea. Some parties were so very unkind is to say it was a pity that the Secretary was not then Board but i pm not Ono that endorses that sentiment. But i want to Tell you another Story about our Navy that took place in the Harbor Smyrna in 1854. Martin Kosta who had been a hungarian rebel took Refuge Board an american ship in the Harbor Smyrna to escape from the Pursuit his austrian pursuers. He had intended to become a citizen the United states and to make this co Tinty his Home the Captain an austrian Man War however to Martin Kosta a prisoner with the intention handing him Over to be tried As n rebel. As it was a great Day for the american Navy when the Man War 8t. Louis commanded by the Gallant commander Ingram sailed into that Harbor and when Martin Kosta claimed the Protection the Flag from under which he had been taken Captain Ingram sent word if Kosta was not immediately put Board the st. Louis he would blow the austrians out the water and although he Lead to live for a lapse time in Franca according to the stipulations pending the action the american government he was thankful to the great and untiring Effort William l. Marcey new York s great son who was then Secretary slate under Franklin Pierce s administration to enable him to return and live in the United states instead passing the remainder Bis life in an Austria Dungeon and i will Tell you my fellow Cir Zens that whoever is chosen after March next to fill the position Secretary the Navy will see that every Dollar will be Well spent toward once More building up our Navy. Contrast that picture with the administration which . Lowell represents abroad. Well i believe . Lowell is not coming Back but when president Garfield was lying his dying bed James g. Blaine was Sec ret try state. The letter Mcsweany s wife the 16th september remained unanswered. Mcsweeny was allowed to remain in a burst is Dungeon and Bow any irishman any relative to the Pikeral Isle Cotus support the party who allowed that to car to support 1854. Is beyond my Ciao Preheim Ion. It will never my friends occur Yoa May rest assured under the administration president Cleveland. Cheers when Franklin Pierce was president the carrying tonnage the United staffs was 85 por the party cent., now it is 15 per cent. The carrying Trade is now almost entirely carried by ships other nations Bec Ansa we Are not allowed to buy a ship abroad and have them transferred under our Fiig so restricted that we can not compete with foreign builders so our Commerce is nearly All done in foreign Bottoms. There a not a ship any Sise now building the a cwt Maine no they Are All principally built abroad mostly the Clyde. If Yon go abroad you see most All other flags represented in the Commerce the world England France and Germany but you will not see our glorious Flag the Star spin led Banner. No our Commerce could be carried in a Canoe. Ladies with your american Pride in your great country. And you my fellow citizens who Are always ready to fight the Battles your country will you not feel a oud the great task we have no v undertaken putting our american Emmerce in the hands american ship bunders and to the people Kings county i pm deeply grateful to those who have so no in rallied Road the Flag thrown to the Breea in the name cd Everand and Hendricks. You like me have been admirers and we firm supporters the principles Ana new Jackson i remember. When a boy go 3g to Village to fee a political meeting Atri i asked the county clerk who who Wib a Man who would not kick a Small boy what was the meaning a hat big Hickory pole which stood in the Center Village. He told me it Meint that when Andrew Jackson went to Washington he would make a clean sweep All the corruption in the various department and i believe that when Grover Cleveland tke9 his place there Well have an honest and conscientious administration. Lua motto was the Hickory pole As it is mine As it is yours and Woi Hope in the future to see this great country carried under an administration sect ring us All oar rights in its future great eau and glory.
