San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - October 17, 1891, San Antonio, TexasSat Juday. October 17, 1801. So Kech directed by Ono of our Ijo Oal Pul Vor Luzern. To the daily Light. Rhe pee of recently delivered by Grover Cleveland in new York like All of ills speeches was carefully writ ten out and All its Phraza studied adjusted with. The View of pro dual diff a impression by axiomatic expression yet despite All this laborious elaboration and study the speech in to Sciug both m the sub sauce and too of Hie real statesman. Depth of thought breadth of View conceptions of Public issues Are nowhere apparent in Speed to but the politician and the scented aspirant for the presi Dency crop out la almost every sen Teuch. Or. Cleveland array guns the Republican party of new York for or err. Mandr Rizig the state so As to secure a the legislature but he forgot to state that the re Rydiander was and introduced into politics by Gerry of Massachusetts a warm Ana devoted adherent of tuomas Jef Persou for the purpose of majority in the legislature of that state. He also forgot the fact that the democrats have resorted to the Gerrymander at one time or an other in every state in the Union and that no democratic convention elate or National has Ever dared to condemn this device ,1 is fran Phish nor Noliti ral opponents. He forgot of uie congressional Diat tits 5 y a legislature by which were so arranged As to place the counties gov Jinjr Large Republican majorities in a few districts Aud the rest of the districts so As to insure democratic majorities. By this device the democrats gained about ten members. And desire Felt to to keen insure the defeat of major that to Iua hav uhf ought not to squirm and make wry faces at having to take a Dodo of Mel Aud by full Gerry. What in for the m Lem oets never hell to to the ferry. Mander to promote party ends it la or Lur rope Ohaus to Pur a Stem of political Jug. My own judgment has always 0011 the Gerry Rauder As Juire and Rad h my idea has been should be prohibited bylaw. But if it in proper and fair Lor one Par ten 8siit Aiu a majority then it a not criminal or unpatriotic id another party to resort to it. Ia.1840 the democrats in states in order to prevent the h 0 in enacted a w for the of members of Congress by the general ticket syst Era that is by the vote of the entire state in the same manner that a governor i Vir. J tally depriving the whips in whiff districts of representation in Congress the countr will show _ that the country will show the democrats have used the Gerrymander More often Thau any other Narty As Well a that they a it Aud buob Cash it was Hyphoci-i8y in Grover Cleveland to convey the in democrats never used the Gerrymander. with Indig th6 dubbed the Furce but which was Intro the a Law designed to put an end to election frauds.

Theory of our government in that the majority shall Rule through the medium of the ballot Box intimidation of voters bribery and fraud in polling illegal votes in counting the ballots and in making false Aud puts Power in the hands of a minority. Fraud and corruption in our elections will subvert our government and undermine our liberties As surely As that night Fol lows Day. My predict Lon May share the Fate of the prophecies of Cassandra be hooted at and disbelieved but for All that it will come to pass literally. But would you have the negroes in control of a state to a thousand times no. I hold that honesty is the test thai it is wrong to do evil that Good May come of and i spurn and reject with Abhorrence the Jesuit Cal doctrine that the end sanctifies the Means used to attain Oil this foundation of Rock my political Creed was built May years ago and the foundation is still sound Audi Lam. Let the Southern states deprive the negro of the right of suffrage or else let him vote without molestation. Without fair and honest elections we will Hove a Mill Ary dictator in Leas than Twenty five years. Caesar did not overthrow the liberties of Rome Marius and Bella performed that infamous task he saved his his country from confusion anarchy and War. Cromwell rescued England from a like Fate Nepoleon the great snatched France from the very jaws of anarchy and civil turmoil. Bob Bers and pirates Are forced to submit to the Rule of a chief. Men will sub Mit to despotism in preference to anarchy. Unfair and corrupt elections will end in military despotism without Deal cation. Or. Cleveland is opposed to the local Mak Kkt Kel out. Hides.

According to Texas democrats he is influenced by and stands in with the Gold bugs and the gamblers of Wall Street. He has certainly apostate sized from the demo Cracy of the lathers. Jefferson Madison Monroe Jackson Van Buren Polk Pierce and Jobu Thauan Hart no fault to find with a Silver currency to far from it they heartily approved of it. They regarded it safer and belter than any papa substitute for it. They looked on it As a Aoud currency. If Cleveland would read the speeches of Thomas h. Ben ton and other democratic leaders from 1837 to 1845, he might comprehend what Are democratic principles. Froth 17s9 to 1873 no of any party openly advocated the de monetizing Aud Bastard izing of Sil ver. It Wae Good and hound enough for All men and All parties. I stand on the aume ground today. Sir. Cleveland in Hia new York speech spoke of a sound Aud honest cur but it is notorious hols opposed to the Freo coinage of Sil ver. He placed himself on record in his letter written in february 1885, when the Silver Bill was pending. It was the first time any Prea deut elect Ever attempted to Dic Tate to Hia party irl Euda in Congress when a Bill was pending. The dem Horatio party of the past Felt no hos Tell Ltd to Silver coinage and Silver cur Rency. The old Felt none either. The Silver coinage views of Cleveland Are at War dem and with the tra dictionary policy of his party. 5iy idea is it would not hint Trade Commerce the workshop Tho Anvil the Jack plane the Ploub and the factory if every Dollar of Silver in the world was in circulation in the United states. By a natural Law it would find its level. Both parties will doubt less straddle the Silver question by adopt us a cowardly Aud juggling platform but that will not suit the people. The people Are move potent than the politicians and a great Deal More disinterested Aud honest also. The declaration May Shock pome of Grover Cleveland s Over admirers who have Zeal without knowledge but according to my measurement be is a theorist and not a statesman a visionary Aud not a practical Man and has departed from the Creed of All the democratic presidents upon a Silver currency.
