say that It related to tho general political

Senator Dolliver Makes
Roosevelt a Statesman Who
Can Safely Guide Ship
Parker's Fame, if Suoh It Be, Rsts
Entirely Upon a Tele
gram. In his address which captured thc big
audience ln tho Salt Lako Theater, Sen
ator Dolliver of Iowa compared tho two
candidates, Roosevelt and Parkor. Ho
spoke as follows:
Senator Dollivers Address.
Ladles and Gentlemen: It is a very
great ploaauro to mo to have thc oppor
tunity of attending this political meeting,
although I havo mado overv rcaaonarlo
effort to get out of tho responsibility of
addressing you. And that because I havo
had rathor an arduous oxperienco during
thc last few weeks, and I very much pre
fer that you should hear my colleague
and friend, becauso I know he would en
tertain you better than anybody else.
(Cries of "Go ahead" from tho audience.)
Of course. I am going ahead. Judge
Smith, however, omitted from his speech
something that I expected he would eay
to you. I think you would like tho Judgo
nil tho more had you heard what ho
had to say about tho pioneers of Utah
at Ogden last night. Tho Judgo claims
to tako a personal Interest In this section
of the country, going so far a.i to claim
that ho lives ln tho same town where tho
early settlers of Utah spent a year plant
ing their harvests and gathering their
crops. Tho Judge has since, ln prlvato
conversation, claimed that ho was thero
and saw It done, and oven has gono so
far as to lntlmato that he carried water
to the harvest hands,
Democrats Joined to Idols.
Now, I do not know that It Is Impor
tant for anybody to talk politics In tho
Roeky mountain country this yeav. I
havo studied tho situation with a great
deal of caro, and I have mado up my
mind that anybody whoso mental facul
ties are ln fairly good state, who has lived
through tho oxperienco of tho last olght"
years without losing Interest ln tho Dem
ocratic party, la Joined to his IdolB nnd,
according to tho Scriptures, ought to bo
let alone. Tho Lord has after all only
one way of teaching mon and nations,
nnd that Is to send them along tho high
ways and tho main road of experience
and let everybody sweat It out for him
self. No Quarrel About Politics.
Ono man cannot be guided very much
by tho experience of another, and la sel
dom warned by tho experience of an
other. One generation Is 6Cldom guided
by the oxperienco of another generation,
except when wo havo gono through such
business as wo havo had ln tho United
States slnco that defeat of Harrison and
tho election of Cleveland. Nevertheless,
I am not hore for the purpose of quarrel
ing with anybody about politics.
Inherit Our Politics.
We Inherit our politics very much as
wo inherit our religion, but hold tighter
to the political faith. Therefore, wo aro
not always right ln our convictions. Wo
like tho Republican party, however, bo
causo It has bound to It a long record of
rational achievements to the Americans
In all their Interests which concern tho
great material wealth of all homes and
firesides. Tho Republican, party Is no ex
periment, Knew Republican Candidate.
Wc havo nominated a man for Presi
dent because wo had been introduced to
him prior to his candidacy for that of
fice. I have known him for twenty years.
Ho Is tho only man born ln New York
city that was ever heard of and that
amounted to anything, and he got out
of town Just as quick as ho could.
Log Cabin in "West.
As I have gono up and down thoso val
leys I have seen a thing or two down
ln this lntermountaln country. I havo
seen tho log house. When we were out
on tho edco of tho State of Montana I
had pointed out tho log house whoro The
odore Roosovclt became a ranchman more
than' twenty years ago. Slnco I camo to
this town a man has ahown mo tho pic
turo of tho log house where was born
our next Vice-President. Hero we havo
a President also who. while not born In
tho log houso, got Into ono Just as quick
as he could.
Cannot Identify Parker.
Now, I don't know what you folks
think of Judgo Parker out here. (Cries
of "Not much; never heard of him.") I
will confess to you that, whllo I am a
diligent reador of nowspapors and havo
been all my llfo, I havo not boon able
to Identify him, T have not been able
to locate him since. I know whore ho
lives, although I don't know how to pro
nounco It. I know that ho Is a Judge,
although I never heard of tho grantees
of modern authority being turned out of
their way. I havo heard him called a
sage, but mv Idea of a sage differs from
Parker a Side Issue.
Tho Democrats expect to make Roose
velt tho Issue of this campaign. Now,
wo havo got to make Parker a little sldo
Issue In the campaign. Now, thoy can
go along telling lies about Roossvolt and
wo will go along tolling the truth about
Parker. So hero is hiB letter of accept
ance, ln order that wo may havo a very
correct and well-Jolntod low of what tho
real Issue of this campaign Is.
Parkor at Forks of Road.
I am going to read It to you from tho
luminous pen of the Democratic party:
"Tho people of tho United States stand
at tho parting of the ways.
Well, I don't wonder at that, becauso
wo havo not. Wo have had a part of tho
way In tho United States. Wo had a
parting of tho ways In 1S3C and a largo
number wont out of tho road and followed
what T bollcvo ho calls a wlll-o'-the-wlsp.
I advlso you not to do that, becauso I
know that the Democratic party would
lead you Into a holo again.
They (tho Democratic party) suld you
woro for freo silver. It was nobody's
business what your views on silver wero,
for If thoy wero wrong you could get
over It. I Judgo that you have. But,
whether vou havo or havo not, your
'rlcnds of the Democratic party have
not. I hate to seo a man ruoblng It
In on his friends. Democrats claim that
you were not only wrong In your at
tentlon to Mr. Bryan, but they claim tnat
vou were crazy becauso Grovcr Cleve
land fays that tho Domocratlc party Is
now becoming safo and nano. Cheerful
thing to look forward to.

Roosevelt ns a Soldier.
Thoy say that President Roosevelt Is a
man of war and enlisted to defend hlo
country, and no did multiplied thousands
and two batteries that went from this
city and from other towns ln Utah.
Roosevelt did enlist ln tho war. I got so
enthusiastic myself that I wanted to go.
I wont to see the Presllent. Ho looked mo
over oarcfully and said ho would see mo
tho next day. I went back again and ho
said ho thought It over and said I did not
know enough to bo a military officer and
waB too fat for a private, and advised mo
to stay In tho Houso of Representatives.
Has Good Advisors.
Now, they say that Roosovclt always
acts upon his own Judgment and upon
hla own counsol. Why. tho greatest thing
about iilm Is that whllo ho Is a man of
his own convictions ho has boon wise
onough to keep close by hla sldo tho cloao
counsellors of William McKlnlcy, among
them that Illustrious statesman and diplo
mat. John Hay.
I havo followed tho buslnoGa of tho
American peoplo at short rango for twolvo

know from hearing.
History Post Ten Years.
I know exactly what has happened to
American business in tho last ten years.
I don't much caro for tho troubles of tho
post. I don't claim to know about thoso
of 1837 or 1E57; don't claim to know much
about tho panic of 1S73, but thero Is ono
troublo I claim to know all about and that
Is tho llttlo troublo that overtook us In
1S0S. I saw tho business wolfaro of eighty
millions of my countrymon go Into a rat

holo until I saw It coming out. Thoy can

Tho peoplo of Ocdon aro Just begin
ning to settlo down to tho conviction that
Senator Frank J. Cannon was ln deadly
earnest when ho doclarcd himsolf with
tho American party. At first they wero
surprised, then began to wonder what
It all moant, and finally began to con
cludo that ho moant what ho said, and.
unless all signs fall, tho brilliant ox-Son-ator

Democracy is correspondingly doprcssed.

carrying Weber county, lf not tho Stato.
that Cannon was at tho head of tho only
Democratic paper ln tho county and was
recognized as tho leading Democrat In
northern Utah, and that tho party de
pended upon his olequonco and his papor
to carry Weber county, but now ho had.
nllgned himself with tho American party,
ho had no hopes of winning.
