SALT LAKE CITY, TJTAS, NOVEMBER 23, 1895.
No. 13;
A STAE OP HOPE.
The elections of 1894, followed
by a repetition of the suae result-
1895, demonstrates beyond eavil,
that the people are dissatisfied frith
aur present rulers. In fact, almost
since the close of the civil
.. i. . it. TTri.J
rar, tne people oc lae uuucu
State have shown an unrest and
itisfaotion with the party in
power, in 1873, urant carriea me
country OTer Greeley by almost
three quarters of a million Totes.
Four years later, in 1876, Tilden's
I pluraity over Hayes, was almost a
quarter of a million on the popular
Tote. la 1880, .Garfield heat Han
cock by OTer ten thousand votes.
At the aezt election, in 1884,
Cleveland received twenty-five
thousand more votes than Blaine.
In 1888, Harrison received nearly
one hundred thousand more votes
I than Cleveland; aad in 189!, the
popular verdict was again reversed,
and Cleveland beat Harrison by a
large vote. Each presidential elec
tion, for more than twenty years,
shows that the political pendulum
has swung regularly from 'one tide
to the other, whkh to our mind, is
evidence that something is wrong,
and the people, in trying to better
their condition, hare sought
change at each opportunity. As
to the election of 1896, wef believe
we are "confronted with a condi
tion and not a theory." In brief,
the industrial and financial affairs
of the country are sick. The po
litical quacks who have been 'pre
scribing for the natisn since 1873,
have simply been giving us slow
poison, aad instead of getting bet
ter we have been gradually sinking;
i and the only hope is not only in a
change of doctors, but a radical
lange in the treatment. The gold
inre, whether administered hj a
I Democrat or by a Republican,
makes no difference, it will still
continne to drag down the patient
to a condition of European bondage.
The question of the hoar is, what
shall we do? Is there any hope?
'Is there mot a balm in Gilead, is
I there no physician there' The
answer k yes. The star of hope k
in- in the Seath aad West. . If
re follow, it wHllsad us out of oar
IpresentMMaMB, and epea ap the
dawn of a mew day.
We revere aadJov the good old
Democratic party ef Jafforsoa asd
Jackson, bat it has
and mismanages!, aatil it is
pelled to go into dry doefc -tar
repairs. The resalt at the eat

we can come out of the fire, as it
were, rejuvenated and more glorious
than ever,and be the means of con
ferring prosperity and happiness
upon millions of our countrymen.
The opportunity is with the party
next year; and we need but put forth
our hand and grasp the fruit. The
act is short and simple: it is, that
we declare our purpose to legislate,
and administer this government in
behalf of the great masses of the
people, instead of a favored class
of millionaires.. Let us sound the
tocsin of "Free Silver, 16 to V of
"An Increase in the Circulating
Medium" of "America for Ameri
cans'.
Let us put up for our standard
bearers, brave and patriotic men,
who when elected will carry out
the wishes of the people. TFe have
such men in our party, and they
will serve us. The time has come
when we must .act, if we would
save ourselves and posterity from
the degrading effect of the money
power.
"We must place the right men. on
the right kind of a jilatfonn, re
gardless of their geographical loca
tion. The time is long passed when
we should fear to name a. candidate
ior President from the South. The
bloody-shirt argument no longer
frightens, even a child. The peo
ple of the South are as loyal to the
interests of this country as the
people of the' North or East.
"We therefore name as our ticket
for -the campaign of 1896:
For. President:
'JOHNT. MOEGAN,
OF ALABAMA.
- For Vice' President:
WILLIAM J. BRYAN,
OF -NEBRASKA.
i
Place those men in nomination
upon a platform of principles simi
lar to what we have hinted at, and
aa avalanche of votes will carry
them to victory, by more than a
million majority. These men are
brainy, and patriotic, and as true to
the immortal principles of Jefferson
and Jackson, as any whose .names
have graced theDemocratie escutch
eon for the last half ceatary. This
is the star o hope for the Demo
cratic party, aad for the people af
the whole United States. Lei as
agitate this important ksae mow,

Fargo, N. D., Nov. 15, 1895.
. F. Taylor, Esq., Salt Lake City:
Dear Friend. I had the pleasure
sometime ago, to receive a copy of
your paper, the Broad Ax, and
again today, when I received two
copies, and also two copies of the
Herald, for which I beg leave to
thank you very much. I read your
speech, "The New Democracy,"
with a great deal of interest, and
want to congratulate you in your
success as a speaker. It certainly
reads nice in cold type, and I am
only sorry I could not have been
present to hear you. I must say
that I took a great deal of interest
in your first State campaign, aad
had every cenfidence you would
succeed, and am sorry you failed.
But Democracy i long lived, and
will, like Banquo's ghost, not down,
and you must win if you perse
vere. I have no newspaper at hand
which gives the vote of your new
State in detail, and you would
oblige me very much if you would
send one. Here, in New Fargo,
where many of the old-timers still
live, things generally are moving .
along very nicely. We are grow
ing steadily and substantially, and
we believe we have the best city in
the best county in the best State in
the best country on earth. Mr.
J. J. Bowers and M. A. Brewer,
both of whom you no doubt re
member well, only recently passed
to the great beyond, and we mourn
their loss very much. Little Dick
Tyler still loans money to his par
ticular friends, and big Billy Allen
still charges $0 for thawing out a
frozen water pipe.
Some other time I may give you
something on politics and politi
cians here, which time will not per
mit now. Again thanking you for
your kindness, and wkhing you
and Mrs. Taylor and the Demo
cracy of Utah success,
I am very truly yours,
C. H. Anheier.

Mr. J. F. Taylor:
Dear Friend. Received papers,
and was very much pleased to get.
them, and to be able to learn of
the political affairs in Utah. Your r
address was grand, and the com
ments upon it in the Herald was
very inc. Some of oar leading
lawyers here, say your address was
very good. So, again thanking
yoa, and with kind regards for
Mrs. Taylor,
I remain yoar friend,
