Or president and gentlemen of the convention we Are Hare to inaugurate a Campaign which seems already to is nearly closed. So wisely hate the people sowed and watched and serve As ballast but it will never steer Ilia Thip. Ille democratic motto Torset when All the people have forgotten will Dawn a Golden Era for this new Foo Donn Frt in Fiot a j ready to p Ace a party in the Lead whose most expressive motto is the cheerless word forge that motto May oppress contrition but it does not inspire Hope neither Confidence nor enthusiasm will Ever be aroused by any party which enters each Campaign uttering Tho language of the Mourner. There a one fundamental Plack however of which the two great Par ties Are in full agreement. Both be Lieve in to e Equality of men the Dif Ference is that the democratic party would make every Man As Low As the poorest Tilc the Republican party Woald make every Man As High a the beet. But the democratic course will provoke Noontide interference now for the Republican motto is that of the great commander never interrupt the enemy while be is making a in politics As in other Fields the most impressive arguments Spring from contrast never has there been a More striking example of Unity than Bat to measure up the Grain. They Are ragtag themselves not Tor Battle but for Harvest. In one column reaching from the Maine Woods to the puget sound Are those people and those states which have stood so Long to Gether that when great emergencies arise the nation turns instinctively to them. La this column vast and solid is a majority so overwhelming that the scattered equals in opposition can the enemy hardly raise another army have neither nor ammunition and if bad they would use them on each destitute of the Wea warfare the Only Eye Demaeo of approaching Battle is in the tone and number of their bulletins there u among the generals discard among the soldiers each would fight in Bis own Way but before assaulting his Republican adversaries he Woald first destroy com rades a the adjoining tents. Each be Levea the weapons Odom by the other Are not Only wicked but fatal to the hotter. It Irwi.

Thence of Diton Leavai that party always a Yakw eve try to Etimoa the dam tits party Mekom tried itt Aid it a str Tea in Yoa Are gathered Here not As factions Tor a by discordant views but moved by oae desire and intent you., have come As the chosen representatives of the most enlightened party in the orld. You meet not As strangers for no men Are strangers who hold the same beliefs and espouse the same cause you May separate two bodies of water for a thousand years but when Onoe the Barrier is removed they mingle instantly and Are one the same traditions inspire and the same purposes actuate a All. Never in our lives did these purposes stand with deeper Root thin Dow. At least two generations have passed away since the origin of that great movement from which sprang the paint which has been the leading impulse in Amer ican politics for half a Century in that movement which was both a creation and an example were those great characters which endowed the Republican party at itt birth with the attributes of Justice Equality and Progress which have held it to this boar in line with the highest senti i meats of Mankind. From these men we have inherited the desire and to their Mentery we owe the Resolution that those great pc Emea of Govero l patriotism and established by their blood shall remain a the fixed and permanent Emblem of their labors and the abiding signal of the Liberty and program of the race. Republicans never Tail in crisis. There Are Many new names in these Days Bat the Republican party needs new title. It stands now where it stood at the memory alone a ceded to Tell the source from the inspirations of the country flew a drowsy me Muir would be As guilty As a sleeping watchman the r is astir. The name of re n Patty Over Svery door where a righteous cause we born. Its Umb Iben have gathered around every problems of every age that age must solve great causes impose great de mands but never in any enter Prim have the american people tailed and never a any crisis has the Republican party failed to express the conscience and Inteli Gimm of that people. The Public Waii is awake both to its opportunities and its dangers. No where in the any Era did citizenship More than it Oronna to Day in America men of courage and sturdy character Are ranging them selves together with a unanimity sol Dom seen. There is no for groping in the dark for the Light a Plain to him eyes. The n a Man or and knows we 11 but raise his people believe convictions believe that what experience it is Idle to resist. A Wise Man is any fool about to die. But there is a Wisdom which with Good Fortune May guide the living and the Strong that wis Dom Springs from reason and experience guided by these this thing is Plain and Young men May rely upon it that the history and Par poses i have described rising even to Tho essence and aspirations of Patriot ism find their Best Concrete example in the career and doctrines of the re publican party. But not alone upon the principles of the party Are Iti members in record. With the same Devotion which has marked their adherence to these principles magnificent and enduring As they Are they have already singled out the Man to Bear their Standard and to Lead the Way. No higher badge was Ever yet Confer cd. But great As the Honor is the circumstances which sur round it make the Honor even More profound. You Hare come from every state and territory in this vast do main the country and the town have vied with each other a sending Here their contributions to this splendid thrnn0 his pair non Trot in is leading Here and crowded with the members of great party which sees in this splendid City the Symbol of its Rise and Power. Within this in example multitude is every rank and condition of free men. Every Creed and occupation but to Day a common Pur pose and desire have engaged us All and from every Nook and Corner of the country rises but a single Choice to fill the most exalted office 10 the world. Roosevelt in peace and War he is no stranger waiting in the Shade to be called suddenly into pub Lic Light the american people have seen him for Many years and always where the fight was thickest and the greatest does was Felt. He has been alike conspicuous to the pursuits of peace and in the Ardonas stress of War. No Man Dow living will forget the Spring of 98, when the american mind was so in flaps and american Patriot ism so aroused when among All the eager citizens surging to the front As soldiers the Man whom this Conven Tion has already in its heart was among the first to boar the Call and answer to his name.

There is Noth ing which so tests a Man a great and unexpected danger. He May pass his life among Ordinary scenes and what he is or does but few will Ever know. But when the crash comes or the flames break out a moment s time will Stotle out the hero in the crowd a Flash of lightning in the night will re veal what Yean of Daylight have not discovered to the Eye.
