Caucus. Jefferson City, Mo.:
My Diar Sir Sonic time ago I was
duly advised that I had I n nomin
ated as the Republican candidate for
1'nlteil States Senutor by the joint
caucus of Ihe Korly-sccond (ietieral
Assi'inlily. Aliscnce from home lias

l li K my acKnow Ii dciiiciit of the 1 1 i v; Ii
compliment. I now licjr to return my
sinceie thanKs. throuiih you as hair
tnan. to Hie Republican Setiators and
Kepreseiitai ives. nud to unsure you and
1hcm of my appreciation of Hie honor
I also Iick that you will convey to
the sixty eiuht Republicans in the pres
ent l,ci:islaturc the assurance that it
will be my aim nnd my pleasure at all
times to advance the interests of the
Republican party In Missouri, anil that
my efforts will be devoted in the fu
ture, as in the past, to the upbilildiim
of a united and harmonious party or
ganization throuulioiit every county
ami city of the state.
I'pon all the irreat issues since Its
creation the Republican party has
1 n rifztit. Our patty Is the party of
action and results, linvinu as Its high
est purpose and insplrat inn the 'reat
cst benefit to the people and the liliih
est clory and credit to our republic.
For more than thirty years Repub
licans In Missouri have been walKini?
In the fib iim of defeat, but we are
ureatly encouraged by the fact that at
each Presidential election the party
lias shown a stiady Increase In the ait
cremite vote, until in the campaign of
1 it marshaled a cratnl army of
more than tlnee hundred thousand
vothes. and this iiotwitlistandiim the
fact that the statute books of the
state were polluted by the presence of
the most Infamous laws, passed for the
express purpose of keepinc the Demo
cratic party in power without reijuril
to the voles of the people. This con
tinued and increasitiK stretmth of the
Republican party justifies the con
viction that, notwithstanding the ob
stacles interposed to prevent, our
party w ill finally n deem Missouri and
place her in the column of States per
It would not be proper more than
briefly to refer in this letter to some
of the causcse that have contributed
to the failure of the Republican party
'o i any tV .-late. In ihe tit-' ; ; i . .
i have had tin Nesbit law. wlib h has
pruitical.y 1 1 i -1 1 amhi.-i d the Republic
an otei s of St. Louis a-id liamli d tin
city and state over hoiliy to the Demo
cratic party, which has lor so lorn a
lime Kept Missouri in bondage.
Hut this is not all. Tin ie is no true
i publican bul w!ci ! plores the dis
miis ions and tact in mil si i he w it bin our
parly and which haw added tin ii
weight to drim il down. Tin-re lias
been an unscciiilv siriiuub- for federal
office. Insii ad of tiuhtiuu the common
e:n my, the parly has been divided'
into factions which bae fought cell
oi In r for Hie spoils. It is ln cau-e of
federal pationae Uial the party has
so ol'iin suffered shipw recti.
I'liily reali.inu that federal nfficis,
too oft i n prove a source of Wi alviie-s
lo the parly in power, I have n-l i uiiie-l
as much as possible from in any man
ner siekhm to control paironaue in
to dictate appoint incuts. I have here
tofore frequently staled my position in
tills respect ill the public press.
It lias- however, always been my ef
fort to co-operate with party leaders,
business men and patrons of the of
fices in communities, in ihe effort to
adjust differences and compose con
flictiui; elements when there have
been controversies over offices, ill the
hope of strenuihenhm the parly. It is
to be deplored that federal pallou-
iisii' is a source of weakness, when it
outfit lo be made an element of
strenpih. If ihe welfare of the Repub
lican party, rather than of self, dom
inated party leaders, we would have no
I have never uiKcd the appointment
of any one on account of expected
benefits to myself. Kxpeiience and
observation have tauulit the lesson,
which Is as old as this government
itself, that appointment of individuals
to office creates, with the unsuccess
ful applicant, a disappointed class,
who become Indifferent to paryt suc
cess; even more than this in their
keen disappoint ment, they are often
willing to sic the opposition succeed.
Another evil, detrimental to the party
as well as to tin- inillvidaiil. is the
constant seekiiiK of personal auuran
dieineil by party leaders. This ouuht
Hot to be.
Still another evident evil Is tjie or-
I catiiat ion of committees, either state,
coni:ri ss' isial. city or eoiinly. whose
i paramount purpose, under the guise- of
! party organization, Is to procure fed
eral office. Such comtnitteis bring
permanent injury upon the patty and
lose the respect of voters,
Hnwiver, there is responsibility in
supporting candidal! s for public office
which nilisl be assiitiii'd. We should
see lo it that only men of characti r.
who enjoy the confidence and re-pect
of the communities in which they re
side, are chosen, and that the choice
of Ihe people shall be respected. Can
didates of this character and standing,
who are stanch Republii uiis, can be
found in all coniiiiunit ies throughout
M issotu i.
As national coininitici man, have
acted upon llnse lini s throiighoili. be-
liiving that such a course would I t
of best utility to the party in the mat 1
tcis jni-l reieneil o. without in tin J
