Soad what our candidate for governor Slid to fifty thousand people in 1862. The gloomiest period of the civil War was during the memorable summer of 1862. It was then that lb.9 Confederate forces were most exultant. Flushed by repeated victories the rebel Lead ers at Richmond contemplated Phonco j Forward waging an offensive warfare. The repulse of in the Shinan Doah Valley and the sore discomfiture of Gen. Mcclellan on the Peninsula encouraged the enemy to abandon their defensive policy and they resolved to remove the of War to the bord the Capitol of the nation was threatened and Loyal heats every where shuddered and grew faint. A cull for More troops was determined on. The president issued his celebrated proclamation for three Hundred thous and the several states were risked to respond to this Call for help. Wisconsin was assigned her quota and nobly did she answer. On the Slot of july 18g2, one of the darkest moments of ill the War an immense Masa meeting was held in the Vicinity of Milwaukee. Not less than fifty thousand people were in at Tendance. The object of the meeting Ivy to Erc Ourore enlistments. The crowd was 10 Large that five or speakers stands had to be erected to accommodate the vast concourse of people. Atout one of Toliese stands the Young men asked to congregate to be by Matt ii.

Treatment. The Philadelphia Titus although in dependent in politics gets in some fatal thrusts upon the Hayes administration in the following pungent another chapter in the annals of the Hayes administration is opened to Day by the statement of Casanave a inem Berot the infamous Louisiana return ing Board Casnave although a color de Roan is the member of the Board had the least to fio with politics and is the one who neither before nor since the counting process has made a living outside of politics. He waa a Well to do undertaker Aud it was hoped when he was appointed that he _1_1 _ ii. _ .1 i Mil no a Ubalo or or of Ken of oni Colln Tryr in used la in of the Marcke Fortt bul re.

Blu idiot of it too and Label "1 of would give a wild flavor of respectability to a Board otherwise composed of two politicians and professional i Gambler All of whom were notoriously on the Inaki cauda have was the cat with whose paws they proposed to pull the chestnuts out of the tire and Only lately Lias he be gun to see hot badly his paws were burned. While Anderson. With his Eon father in Law brother in Law and coterie of have been drawing o year Wells and tardily including his father who must be a Hundred years old about a year and Konner and family about year from the government on account of their political services in the presidential elec Tion of 1s7g, poor Cassa Aye returned to Hia coffin making to find the business gone to the mischief and then to Crown All he was required to foot the Bills for keeping himself and associates out of the Penitentiary where they be longed. The details of this Story Aro told in his pleasant Way in our Washington dispatches but the worst refers to Bis adventures in the Effort to induce the administration to take the Burden of debt off his shoulders. Casa rave reasoned As most men would that the men who were enjoying spoils of the crime that he committed bad an interest even greater than his own in covering up the dirty we k done in their behalf. To a certain extent the administration seems to have shared this View. The president received him courteously and passed him on Mccrary Aid he would pay Tho whole amount himself but he was t Able and Sherman actually planked Down magnificent sum of one Hundred dollars. When cassava pursued it Hern further hey wore even More finally through the kind offices of some of the Legal gentlemen who represented or. Hayes before the electoral commission seventeen Hundred and fifty dollars were raised. They Drew theline Otthat amount however and hence Casanave shakes the Duit of his feet from the capital covering the administration with profanity and half inclined to turn it b state s evidence. It is an entertaining Storr and still most disgraceful to those who figure in it from the highest and he ice it. The is not yet. Or. Off Sirlene and fellow citizens Ladin and gentlemen called from the More congenial Pur suits of private professional life to As sume temporarily the position of an applicant for the auf orstes of the people of Wisconsin i have yielded All personal references to undertake what seemed to me to be a Public duty. In the performance of that duty i appear before you to Nicht to express my opinions up on certain topics of Public interest those opinions being valuable Only from representative character which 1 at present sustain. It Naeema not improper for me to premise that the opinions which i hold be honestly expressed. I am do political trimmer. I have been accustomed to hold and express my sentiments at the dictation of no party or set of men and i shall not now sink my Independence As a Man to attain to any of fice on Earth. What shall say shall to my honest it pleases to u or not. State rights. There appears to be prong up in this country a conflict touching the nature and form of our government a conflict which was had at the cranial of tiie Constitution and which it had been fondly supposed waa Long ago deter mined. Upon the one hand it scorns to be asserted that the National government should absorb Powers not granted by the fundamental Law. The cry is heard for a stronger Central government. Just what is desired the partisans of that theory do not deem it advisable to state but by by Al most imperceptible ments have been Mado upon Powers not granted to the Federal government which will result unless checked by tie people in a int dust change from our present system of government into a vast centralized government of almost unlimited Power. Upon Tho other hand it is claimed that the system adopted by the fathers of the Republic and which finds expression in the Constitution they adopted is All sufficient in Point of strength to maintain Tho Union my is essential to perpetuate the liberties of the people. It is Well therefore1, 10 ascertain Juat what our a Stem of love Rumen whether it be sufficient for its maintenance and whether change to some other system is either or tends to promote Tho Liberi mid Well being of the citizen. Upon the turn venation of the revolutionary to schools of statesmen were , having Dis and opposite methods for the for i mation of our government the l Lead by that distinguished Patriot and Able statesman Alexander sought to establish a government upon the Model of the British system having the Poi Era of govern rent centralized and the subdivisions of government shining by the reflected Light of the Cen trial Power the by the immortal such sys tem dangerous to Liberty believed that the nearer government get to the peo ple it the Iftner and the stronger and sought to establish a Central or National to verment to which should be grunted sufficient Powers for its maintenance reserving to the states or to the people All Powers not granted to the National government or forbidden to the plates. In the contest which ensued the latter theory was practically successful. Our Constitution was so framed submitted to and adopted by the several Statis and in order to place beyond Contention the character object of that instrument the several plates and Iho people thereof within two Hearg after the acceptance of the Constitution duly adopted an Amend ment to that instrument known Asar Ticle a which expressly that Power not delegated to the United states by the Constitution nor prohibited by it to the states Are reserved to the it fates respectively or to the peo with reference therefore to this Constitution and to the relations which states Bear to the Union it it Manifest and has been to held As Well by the supreme court of the United states As by the courts of last report in every state of thu Union speaking of this question that the Federal Constitution ii a Grant of Power to the United states govern ment that As to All the Reb y granted they Are reserved 10 the states or to the people and that therefore the Constitution of a state is not a Grant of Power for the Power existed in the state and with its people before and independently of any con still upon but is limitation upon a Man judge and lawyer in the land. The supreme court of this state composed at the time of such distinguished jurists As Luther s. Dixon ors Muscole and the lamented Byron Payne asserted this j Beloit. 10 wis. Reports Page 225, in i the following language we suppose j it to be a Well settled political principle that the Constitution of the state is to be regarded not As a Grant of Power but rather As a limitation upon the Powers of the legislature and that it is competent for the legislature to exercise All legislative Power not forbidden by be Constitution or delegated to the general government or prohibited by the Constitution of the United Here then Ive find the True doctrine touching the Frame work of our system of government. A doctrine sanctioned by the framers of the Constitution a doctrine sustained every reputable judicial tribunal in the land. A Doc Trine asserted to sustain the action of the electoral commission which awarded the presidency to or. Hayes in its refusal to go behind the returns of in dependent states to investigate alleged feuds in a presidential election a doctrine which i believe and which i understand the democratic party to uphold. That doctrine is simply in All mailers of National concern in respect of ail. Powers granted to it by the Constitution the National govern ment is supreme. The states have no right to interfere with the subject. In nil matters not delegated to the general government by the Constitution or its various amendments tha states Aro mip Remc. Tho Federal government has nothing to do with those subjects. Aud As to whether a particular Power be Longs to the National government or to state the Constitution has created the i supreme court of the United slates Tho Dinul arbiter and judge to whose de uis Ion every party and every citizen every passion malicious or generous must Bow. This a the most wholesome and com Orsble doctrine of slate rights rightly adopted and sent to the Senate for its politicians and i believe with president concurrence Assembly journal 1859, in the noblest sentiment Ever Page and wern concurred to by serves his party Best who the Senate Senate journal 1s59, Page serves Bis country Best.1 Republican senator voting in Envor Aud every democratic senator voting against them and among to gentlemen so voting in favor of these resolutions of nullification Defiance and disunion was the present exec live of the state governor win. E. I Smith then a senator from the county of Dodge. Those resolutions were Bald Siul Ifica guis lied opponent entertained Ike Opin ions at the present time i fled these resolutions however to Day disgracing the statute books of the blot upon the fair Escutcheon of repealed expunged or publicly repented of. And i assert that it ill becomes any Man or party which supported bosc resolutions to denounce As disloyal or dangerous the doctrine of the rights of the states expounded by the fathers of Tho Republic und held by the democratic party and enforced to Day throughout the length and breadth of this Laud by every judicial tribunal therein. Another matter of interest 1o the nation at the present time concerns the subject of fair and peaceful elections. As to this i believe that there is no discordance of sentiment among Good men of All parties. It is essential to thu permanency of our that Crery citizen or Low Rich or poor without re spurt to race color or previous condition of servitude. Slum old i ave be. Cured to him the i Erht Vota without interference or ill Madation. There should not Only be no Rien Hil of shh right but every be actively protected trip Ilia. Thru should be no Pering with the Billot Box. There should unlawful votes permitted to be cast. There should be no wicked a Hajj. Ing of Voles Cist or false returning of the results. The very continuance of upon Anuncio Naroll cd and honest expression of electors and upon an honest Coriat. If intimidation and fraud fire to be permitted to control understood. Under it the National us our elections we May As Well admit that maintained in Al its vigor self government preserved existing Power. The one is a delegation or Grant of Power the other ii a restriction or limitation upon an existing Power. This is no new doctrine. It is the very primer of constitutional history. Reckless political writers dealing with this question in the heat of a Campaign May rave As they will. It is a doctrine recognized by every states Prency i find local in its entirety. Under it nation Al and state government move Ruch in in appointed orbit without notion and without clashing like unto the Harmony of the spheres. Under it a government for the people and by the people is sustained and the Manifest evils flowing from Areat centralized Power Are avoided. Under it Tho motion of the be Public Noria its fulfilment e pluribus out of Many one. Oat of Many one nation. Oat of Many states one indissoluble Union. States separate and yet one people separate and yet one. Stales Independent in local affairs dependent and United in National affairs. 11 separate. Tit water one i partisanship has sought o falsely charge this a Octant with the paternity of secession and rebellion but such at tempts will signally fail. To strike at this doctrine of state rights As expounded by the fathers of the Republic is to strike at the foundation of our govern ment. To overthrow this doctrine is to overthrow our whole Sis pm of govern ment. There was however a doctrine of nullification a doctrine of secession and disunion once held by desperate men now happily overthrown and Laid to rest in its unholy grave fitly expressed1 in the following resolutions Elf Olvid that Tover Merit formed by Tia innit Lution of Ilia United Vait not made the Ercla Alvo or tonal or the Ert out of Powert delegated to Tubac As in All other of compact among part Lua Bavins no common stir Ign Hefti an equal ref fat to juried for it Arr is Well of a fractious a of Trio Mode and Launcr of Jisen Lei that Tho principle and Enni traction Conlen Derror by Tho parly which now rules in the of the nation the Drin Nurak party Bat xon ural government la Iho exc Laivo a dire of tin of the pore i delegated to it atop nothing Iliot or Dea Poylim inc it to Dacre.

These resolutions do not express the doctrines of Tho rights of Iho states. They declare the doctrines of the South Carolina nullification they assert the Dogma of Southern secession they breathe disunion and i regret to add they formulate the Creed of the Republican party of Wisconsin in 1859. These resolutions in substance were introduced in the Assembly of the wis Consin legislature by the chairman of its judiciary gentleman new the principal proprietor and Man aging editor of Tho Milwaukee Sentinel the leading Republican Organ of the state a hich paper just now is greatly exercised Over Tho constitutional Dot of the rights of states pretending to consider it dangerous doctrine. The committee on Federal relations to whom was referred the resolutions so introduced reported to the Assembly the resolutions i have quoted where upon or. Horn a democratic member sought to substitute a Resolution As Fol lows it trolled that we will Bathe decl Lons the untied Laws on All doubtful quit lout a Blob mar Alae under twid Constitution of the United feta Tei.

To secure Scicli honest vote i have always favored Aad do now favor such reasonable regulations As will pre vent unlawful votes and punish an Ille Gal voter. If to accomplish that end some personal inconvenience must be bum tilted to by the Leal voter in registering his name lie should cheerfully submit thereto in the interest of purity of elections Aid the stability of his government. And in this connection i take this occasion to denounce All intimidation of voters All Public or social ostracism for political cause All outrages upon any citizen for difference in political Faith. Throughout this whole land every Citi zen should Lin Vethe free and unquestioned lib Chr. To i Uter Tuin his own notions of political Luibli without fear or intimidation and to exercise All his political rights constraint. And in com Mon with All Good citizens i demand that any Aud nil infractions of such right any Anil All intimidation or Vio Lence inflicted upon Uny citizen for his political Faith shall a punished swiftly and surely by the jaw of the land. There must be no political ostracism no Politi Cal assassinations. Civil service . I desire also to express my firm be Lief doctrine much derided by the . The Advent of More prosperous times the shifting of the balance of Trade in favor of the United states and returning Confidence have enabled the government to resume specie payment upon the Day designated by Resolution of the Congress. Partial resumption has been reached and i believe it the duly of the citizen to Aid to make such resumption permanent. It is Idle now to enquire if such resumption has been Cor passe l with the least injury possible. A Wise statesmanship deals with the present and the future cot with the past. Resumption is Here and must be maintained. It is for tie interest of Tho business of the country it is for Tho interest of every producer in the Laoj that currency issued by the government should be convertible into Coin at tiie pleasure of the Lio Dor. The paper Dollar which Tho Workingman receives for his labor should be clothed with the purchasing Power of a Gold Dollar. If he be paid in a debased currency if he receive for a Dollar that which ii Worth less than Dollar which will not Purchase an honest Dollar s Worth of bread he Anci his family Are defrauded of his labor. A debased cur Rency furnishes the Opportunity of the usurer and the shark. It is also the Mill Stone around the neck of honest labor that shall drag it Down to its ruin. So that i maintain whatever volume of Rainy be placed in circulation the purchasing Power of a paper Dollar shall Beket equal to that of a Gold Dol Lar. That i understand to be the Plain meaning of the financial Plank of our platform and the True position assumed by the democratic party of Wisconsin Cox Lusios. My fellow. Citizens the Long night of i. Naycial depression is passing away. The rising Sun of a renewed Prosperity is gild ing the Eastern sky with its cheering rays. They who have Long endured the Pinch ing poverty the gaunt hunger and the fearful struggle with and versus Lite Ruay take courage and go Forward for a better time seems to be approaching. Renewed Confidence Lias Given new life. Grest industries but arc bounding into 1 Esi ored activity. Hope Long Dor Mant illumines every face. Labor Wel comes every son of toil to Liberal Reward. Science Points the Way to break through the old limitations to human Endeavor and almost annuls the everlasting conditions of time Aud space. The magnificent achievements of to Day Lead but to grander projects for to Morrow a. The people arc Rushing Onward in a inv car of physical Prosperity to a Liili no Bounds can be assigned. But in the mad Raca for wealth let us not forget or forego our duties As Citi Zens. Let us remember that wealth and physical Prosperity constitute but in a Small degree Ilia True greatness of a a. Ilon. Let us not lose sight of the old fashioned notions of truth Honor Aud integrity. While surrounding those we love with Al needed comforts let us rot Torget that moral culture which alone can make u people great. Be slave to no Garty. Cultivate Independence of thought e bound by no prejudice. Seek the pure Light of reason. Be a Man Geekins 10 do your duty As a and in the Best Good of Tho state. Study to know your duty and to do it. Study to know your rights Sud Dara to assert Vliem. Be not time servers look ing to the Reward of Tho present nor Crook tie pregnant hinges of the knee that Thrift Tuny follow be in machine politicians of All parties the doctrine civil service Reform. Tie history of our country has exhibited tie establishment of a vast army of office holders who do but Little 01 the Public Sci Vicc being mainly engaged in advancing the interests of the political parly under whom they hold. They Are a not servants of Tho people but of their party. They manage and control Clicc Lions at the expense of the Public. The duties of their position Are confined to Tho care of agents not selected by the receive the gains of of lice and uphold the Causa of their party. This system is sought to be sustained up on Maxim that to the victors belong the a most unholy and mischievous theory that has worked untold corruption in the body politic. Any party Long in Power will become corrupt because Tho Corm Oruis that arc without principle or Honor will at Tach themselves to whichever party Hap do Pendant Manly and enduring for the right. Then chaff you build up Here within the limit of this goodly Commonwealth state in deed not merely a react in physical development but great in men that in time of need shall prove Tho bulwark of a nation. Attu tonal without i record to and and every Republican member of that Assembly toted against this latter Resolution and every democratic Mem Ber voted in its favor and it was Defeated. Assembly journal 1869, Page thereupon by a like vote the original nullification resolutions were pens to to in Power and obtain control of Hie gains of Vilice. They Are Tho barnacles which Load Clown and May sink the ship of stale. To obviate this error to do with these political a harks our civil service should be reformed and restored to the honesty which characterized the Early Days of the Republic. Qualification for office should be determined by the old Limu criterion is Bel Ionest Tho capable is he faithful to have Tho unseemly spectacle of the removal of nearly every employee of the government upon s change of administration As if the safety of the Union depended upon Tho janitor of a custom House cleans the Spittoon enter Taining political opinions at one with the party in Power. This should All be changed and when one u found faithfully honestly and Wal per forming jigs duties in a subordinate office to should not to removed because of his political in More the to ends of departments if you will for hey give Efficacy to a supposed needed change of political policy but ordinate i who merely Mana Jjo the Rou Tine and details of government Machin Ery should be judged by the stand Ard efficiency and honesty. To banker would think of Diecha Ramg an honest faithful Teller became of jigs political opinions or employ a dishonest Faith less incompetent main because of Polit ical agreement with him. Bun your government As you run your business. The will be the better served you will remove from the Arena of politics most corrupting Agency that threatens the National life.

The question of who shall to elected governor disturbs politic to friends and political opponents much More than it docs myself. Upon that question i await the decision of Tho peo ple calmly and without distrust.
