political Confidence game be Hadas it was in France j made speech Over Here the St Day of january last to and sinocrat in convention and in that speech a Dollar a Bushel now my friends the curious Parton or Voorhees plan is to come and that is that after lie had he declared himself in favor of is announced this wonderful theory suing of paying Oil the National debt per Money enough new greenbacks j without costing anybody anything to Payd i the five Yenty Bonds i by simply manufacturing enough thought then there was Only fit new Money to do it it in pied to teen Hundred millions of like twin i enter Voorhees mind that it to Bonds and to proposed to Issue Rajher an enormous propose hns binds can never forget that voices no never and you can never forget the men that made that War voices that so no you can never forget the politicians that forced that upon this country but i am speak ing of the material ravages of the War they Are fast disappearing and with the destruction of human slavery and the establishment of and there is not in it one fair and candid statement either in regard to regard to the he publican party or the administration that Many new greenbacks for the purpose of paying them off lie argued against to fixation that we were ground Down by taxation but that we could Stop All this interest is his issuing enough new greenbacks to pay off the five Twenty Bonds Iio didst propose to pay Ott the the old greenbacks in those that were issued before the Bonds a resold and with which the Bonds were bought not at All because you can Only get the old greenbacks in to the Treasury by taxation Lut so far As the new ones arc concern of general Grant not one Johany i de ail you have got to do is to Start t i Tate mints Are clearly i the panting i

intend to attempt to misrepresent him i am going to of Justice and Liberty to All we Ai c answer All that speech tonight i Brendan extract from his speech in wealth and material to would not be Worth your while j made on the St of january at lion Sway toward the close of his speech he finally intimated that All this paper Money might after All be redeemed when Why he said alter All these debts had been paid after Heend of fifteen or Twenty cars and after this Money bad passed from the hands of the creditors into the hands of the peo ple that then Trio government might redeem this Money in Coin that Isi after von have had All the to encourage or build up and put the lowest upon things that we do produce in Competition with for eign countries so As to afford them the least possible Protection and encouragement Well there is another plan that is called the horizontal to Levy an equal per cent upon All articles without regard to whether they Are necessities or luxuries it has been sometimes said that that Tariff was one of strict neutrality Between the Home producer and the foreign producer now if you think that our government ought to maintain a position of strict neutrality Between the Home producers and the foreign producers Joist As we shall maintain a position of strict neutrality be tween France and Prussia in this great War that is you will be in favor of that Tariff but there Are very few people in any party that re in favor of that first Becu Uso we of Wylie to put higher on luxuries Ilian of Thene Cess ties of life and then if there is an incidental and legitimate Protection to result from the Tariff let that be Given for our own Home producers instead of going for the fore Jan producers then there Way of levying a Tariff and that is to put it lower upon articles that we dont produce where we have Noah inst to encourage or build exam ple Tea and Coffee and then put it higher upon articles that we do lorry notices 15 cents per Lino to no Tice however

improvement of our farms the building of railroads and turnpikes and every species of Public improvements whether you look to the general Consolida Tion of the business of the country that it is now being placed on a solid foundation that it is now escaping Tion to one particular upon which in spent some ten or twelve pages of that speech did that is what is called the Greenback question us Tolly of Greeni acids first a few words in regard to the Greenback on the Kulli of february 1862 Congress passed the first act authorizing the Issue of Legal Lender notes commonly called greenbacks the second act was passed in january 1803 and the last net was passed March Pistili since then there have been no acts passed the Issue of under those several Nils there Weri some four Hundred millions of greenbacks issued hourly four millions of this amount tracked or As we say retired from circulation by Jar Mcculloch Secretary of tiie Treasury during the of Civ Liioi Viroil Lullion by Hibino now arc Elliree Hundred and lift six millions of greenbacks besides As you know about three Hundred millions of National Bank notes that Are based upon the Bonds and arc redeemable in greenbacks but 1 speak now of the Legal ten Der notes issued by the govern ment we have been trying Ever since the end of the War to bring these notes to Par starting at is alarm keep your scats of the 1 am told my friends that it is a cents or la and bringing them no false alarm perhaps a Mere trick of until now As i said awhile ago we the enemy that is democrats i do not know How i Ukel onsite Fok the Wai dk11t politicians my friends arc complaining much to you about the War debt and about the manner in which this debt was to be paid the party is held responsible by democratic Polilli o i Evans As if this debt had been made 1 for the Benefit of the Republican party this debt was made to pre serve the country to raise armies to pay them and equip them to put Down the rebellion am1 the men who made the rebellion and who have got them to about q2 acid expect if nothing happens to have them at Par in the course of six months now if it Lias required such a Long time and has been attended with so much Dii Mculty to bring three Hundred and fifty millions of these notes up to Par and got Clear of their depreciation what would be the trouble and what would be their depreciation if instead of hav ing Only three Hundred and fifty million we had say two thousand millions in that Case All Hope of Indianapolis senator Morton Here read an extract from or Voorhees speech in which he unfolded the plan for pay ing Ott the 520 Bonds which tiie senator was discussing Lut or shortly after that made a speech in the House in which lie spoke of increasing the currency to one thousand millions now As we have got seven Hun dred millions already National Bank currency and greenbacks to Gether that would Only permit the Issue of three Hundred millions which would not pay Oft the 52us by some twelve or thirteen Hun dred millions or Voorhies notions upon this subject Are so very Tiu it it to lock not seem to him to make very much i Florence whether the currency is one thou Sand in Ilins into thousand Mil Lions hid he jostled from one to the other with easy India Terence but when he was charged with this inconsistency he came Bud to Indianapolis Ami unit Iii Aro referred to in regard to myself in which to adv Caird the Issue of 15uu millions of paper currency with which to pay Oil the 1500 millions of Bonds that is his plan and this plan that he is spreading before the people of his District what would be the effect of Why my years All the derangement of Busi Ness after you have had All the suf Fering that must come financially Ami commercially from such a state of things and after this Money had passed into the hands of the Bro kers and shavers that have bought it Napfor a Mere song or Vorhies intimates that then he would re deem it i say Tho government cannot redeem it it never was i done in any country and it can not i a Doue in this you must gradually bring your currency up to Par we Are now doing Aud it can then be redeemed it can not in any other Way i denounce this whole scheme As being n Mere scheme of repudiation the argument that is made by or Voorhees in this speech is an argument against the bondholders lie describes them As the greatest of ail rascals he describes them As the men that cheated the government and that robbed it As usurers and plunder ers Well now my friends 1 dont own a Bond i wish i did it would to very convenient to have n of them but Bear in mind Phil the Jioji who bought tha Bonds arc the men who risked their Money on this nation and they risked it in Defiance of the advice of every democratic politician in Vigo county a voice you arc right3 they were constantly spying mat government could not put friends the effect of it if followed no would simply be first to swindle the creditors out of what the government owes them and next to swindle the people by putting into their hands this body of currency that would scarcely be Worth the paper it was printed on this was ill Voorhees plan in 18g7 but when tiie of Lect of it in the demo cratic convention in 1s38 was to Slaughter any Man that was in favor of it and in 1809 when or pen Ducton became a candidate Lor gov depreciation for fifteen or Twenty produce in Competition with for eign countries so that there shall be a fair and equal and honorable Competition Between the Home pro Ducer and the foreign producer if you make a prohibitory Tariff then you get no Revenue if you put it below the Point of Competition then you get Revenue Only and you Cut Oil your Home producer and give the Market Over entirely to foreign producers now we dont want a prohibitory Tariff we dont want to make a monopoly Here we dont want to exclude the foreign producers so that mean men May produce and sell them to us at their own Price i3ut As you have to have a Tariff How Are you to put it put it Ata Point that will afford a fair Competition Between the Home producer and the foreign producer that brings you Revenue because there is a Competition and Competition implies that there is foreign importation that gives you Revenue and at the same time encourages and builds up your own Home producers your Home manufactures and your Home la Bor i am for protecting Tho Home labor no the As it can be done legitimately i dont want to see the Labouring men of Indiana working for the same Price that the Labouring men of great Britain Franco and Germany command labor is higher in this country than it is in those countries i expect to see it maintained and Hope that it will be and when it comes in our Power and we can legitimately protect and encourage our own labor Lam in favor of doing it but i dont want anybody to go away and say because 1 say this that i am in favor of a prohibitory Tariff protect tic Tariff in the offensive sense in which this is sometimes used what i mean to say is that we have got to have it whether we want it or not i dont care How much Deiv Iago ties May Brawl in favor of free Trade we have a Tariff adjusted so As to discriminate not in favor of the

always will be Yon have sometimes known men who when they were in perfect health would continue to make everybody miserable responsible for the debt Kight right that who made this rebellion who was it caused us to Iner this debt and who Are today justly responsible for it in the opinion of the world Well my friends 1 can Tell you 1 and my words can not be gainsaid j that the democratic politicians of 1 the North Are largely Aud chiefly responsible for bringing on this i War i speak that which is matter of history j am1 who know it bet Ter than the citizens of Vigo county that but for the course of the democratic party in Indiana and other states we should have had no rebellion and but for the course of tic democratic party it would have been abandoned at the end of two years and but for the con Duel of Tho democratic leaders we would today Al debt worthless As they did in Frances they have done in other countries but by keeping them within a mod Erate limit we always entertained the idea and the Hope that we could bring this currency to Par and we shall succeed in the great fran Bill As it is called o 136i Iii ice which Tho last Bonds were issued that arc now out standing it was

Wilt not come to the conclusion that As a people we Are More prosperous in this your 1s70 than in any for Mer period of our National life air recitation of tre Cuk ency i spoke about stability take for example the currency we have had trouble with our Zurrin to Dewar a strange and unnatural condition of things but now it is coming Back to solid foundations Only a Short time ago it was Worth Only is cents on a Dollar then 70 then75 80 35 90 and now 92 and we have every reason to believe that if we shall have no political disturbance in six Mont Lih from this time Tho paper Dollar in your pocket whether it be a Greenback or a a National Isaic note win be equal Toa Dol Ler in Gold cheers that is the straight olt the right of secession the right of a state to withdraw from the Union if she saw proper to do so and when Northern men went Down to the South Aud argued to Southern men the of secession we should much blame Southern men for embracing thai doctrine As Between the Southern Young men who embraced the doctrine of the Rishi of secession and the Man from the North who went Down to Annie it to him where is the greater decree 1 of guilt 1 mention 11 r Voorhees As prominent in your District but he is Only one of hundreds and it is now a fact As Well settled As any other and the Southern people will All Tell you so when you go among them i dont care in what state you travel you ask the men who were engaged in rebellion and Thev nil tilt Lonj 1 1 i j you have got to have the Revenue to carry on the government now if you abolish the Tariff How Are you going to get it Why you must raise it by direct taxation is the democratic party of Ludiana in favor of direct taxation to raise this Money nobody is in favor of it then we have got to have s Tariff you cannot repeal in with right i Olla of Iid Olit some Way by the redemption of the c20 Bonds i you can carry on the Cov a majority of both branches without Money or Congress did Oil with me of that i Voorhees has discovered How lie subject and a Tost vote was taken can Tlle National debt without costing anybody anything if he could now devise some plan by which the government could be carried of in other respects with out Money then the work of Finan Cial Reform would be Complete we have got to have the Money some time in March 18cj it was i decided that the government had no such right but that was my opinion but at 1 he Simo time the right of the government to Issue now greenbacks after Tho Bonds had been sold c denounced then As i denounce it now As being but repudiation Miller another name and in order to show you that or to Orlines misrepresented me i will now read from my speech made upon that occasion senator Morton then rend extracts that Tariff How Yon adjust it it fro 3 Spoonh n the sonata report Tomc Prole god to Olu e cry naturally by being slaughtered in the demo italic convention ill new York in legs you remember unit these gentlemen came to the conclusion Itiat they discovered a Way by which the National debt could be paid without costing any body anything which would be a very desirable thing indeed with out taxation without Burden that was i said then that was what general Sherman said general Sherman has been quoted in Fauvor of this Pendleton theory it was always false to me As it was and we have got Fco raise at least 150 or 160 millions by n Tariff then my friends free Trade is out of the question when a Man talks to you about free Trade he talks to you about a thing that is impossible i do not care How you Lay in part 3 of the congressional Glotien Sec Omi session of the Tulli Congress knowing to Lii Lio denied the right the govern ment to now Issue of Legal tender notes and pay Oil the 520 bonded in that upon the people simply Lew thousand dollars for Ink paper and printing and they now wish to make the people rally or to Orlines for Griendle ton has abandoned the whole thing wishes to make the people be Lieve that having found out this Way by which the National debt can be paid without costing any body anything that the democratic party ought to be put in Power for the purpose of relieving the people of All taxation Well my Friend have heard of something like this before 1 pre sume some of Vou have seen Adver some Protection to our manufactures therefore free Trade is out of the question As Jong As have to Levy a Tariff for Revenue Well there ale several kinds of Tariff there is what is called a prohibitory Tariff that May be regarded As an Obeso Etc idea i know of nobody that is favor of that in this country then there is a Tariff merely for Protection to him or Voorhees took what i Well that is very Little different i said in regard to the old Grecu from a prohibitory Tariff in Ponci backs and attempted to apply it to Pic that is not the kind of a tar the new and the something has been done in regard to senator Sherman and Many other republicans senator Sherman always denounced As i have always denounced this doctrine As being simply repudiation and so it is Why my friends i spoke to you about Tho effect of 35g millions of Tibet Nants in the newspapers that if i irredeemable paper you would Senda Dollar to some difficulty we have had in bringing great thing that to require in or secession was consummated and in my i611 1lart u of been i Post office Box in new York Boston or Philadelphia they would Send a great recipe in return for it by which you could make a great for Turuc become suddenly Rich such advertisements arc frequently contained in the newspapers Aud Greenhorn sometimes bite at them and Send their dollars for lilo encouragement that they received from democratic leaders in the North they never would have embarked in the rebellion but they were led to believe that the democratic party would hold the Republican parly and Tho government still while the work of and such advertisements Are in that to Par and it is Well known to every business Man to every Man of intelligence that if you were now to Issue 300 millions or even 200 millions or 100 millions of new Legal tender notes that you would inflate the currency you would encourage a spirit of speculation you would Send up the Pri Iff we want but As we have to have a Tariff for Revenue we pro pose that the Protection that re sults from adjustment of that Tariff shall result in favor of our Home producers instead of in favor of the foreign producers now there Are two or three ways of levying a Tariff first there is the Way advocated Byer if err a democratic congressman from in Diana he says he wants it put highest upon articles that we do not produce at All for example Tea and Coffee ave dont produce them therefore put the Tariff highest upon such articles of course then it must come lowest upon articles that we do produce in Competition with foreign countries put the highest upon articles that we dont port now Here is the fact and i ask a distinguished Railroad Man who is Here tonight or w 11 Mckown president of the Terre haute Indianapolis Railroad i state it As a general proposition 1 think i am not far out of the Way that it will Cost one Bushel out of every three of wheat to get it to the City of new York Tiow near am i right or nearly or Mckeen says 1 am very near right i Tell the Farmers therefore that it will take one Bishe out of three very nearly to Send their wheat to new York and then it costs a Good Deal to get it to Liverpool and when it comes to Corn i guess it takes on Bushel to Send tile Oiler to new nearly to Send t to the City of Newyork and then if you go in search of a foreign Market which some gentlemen arc so Bent on you have to foot the additional transportation across the Atlantic or whatever sea it May be so that it is for our interest to have our Market at Hoire and my friends it is to our in Terest to have All kinds of Industry nil kinds of 1 do Iii want to create a Mono ply but i say it is to our interest to have As Many manufactures As we can Why do you think everybody ought to be Farmers Why certainly not if so the Farmers could not make anything if everybody were far mers then the Farmers would have no Market no it is not the inter est of those gentlemen who Are engaged in farming to have everybody else quit their mechanical pursuits and go to farming it is to our in Terest to have diversified pursuits to manufacture As far As we can what we need that the men that manufacture May buy what the Farmer has to sell Aud sell to the Farmer what he wants my friends will any Man dispute these principles and yet some politicians will come before the country and Are Noas if there really was no honorable Pursuit except that of farming they want to flatter the Farmers but the Farmers have too much Good sense and too much intelligence to be battered in that i Way they know that if every body was to go to farming they could make but very Little at it their interest is to have Good markets at Home one great consideration that we have got to look to now is that of cheap transport in due time did sail triumphantly past the generals door but let me add that according to an express stipulation made by Tho sly Robert in Case he the Kate
