TO TOTE THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET
New Yokk, Oct. 27. The German
American Cleveland Union held .a great
mass meeting to-night in Cooper Union, the
large hall being packed with people and
nearly as many more being unable to gain
admittance. Enthusiasm was at white heat
throughout the proceedings, tumultuous
applause greeting Mr. Cleveland, Carl
Schurz, Oswald Ottendorfer and the many
leading German-American citizens as they
came upon the platform, which was decora
ted with the portraits of the national
Democratic candidates, surrounded by
tastefully draped American flags.
Hon. Oswald Ottendorfer called the meet
ing to order and spoke briefly of the attitude
of the two parties. As Mr. Ottendorfer
was closinc a inisrhtv cheer arose near the
southern entrance to the hall and the band
struck up "Hail to the Chief." At once
Sir. Cleveland was seen coming down the
aisle toward the rear entrance to the stage,
and the vast assemblage stood up and
cheered, yelled, and waved hats and hand
kerchiefs. As Mr. Cleveland appeared on
the platform a whirlwind of" applause
swept over the hall, continuing for fully
five minutes. Mr. Cleveland bowed re
peatedly before taking his seat Every
mention of Cleveland's "name thereafter by
the speakers elicited creat applause.
William Stein way was then introduced as
Chairman and said in part that the McKin
ley bill with its enormities and abnormities,
has drawn a veritable Chinese wall around
us, and has not only not resulted in any ad
vance of wages, bnt has made nearly all
articles dearer to the consumer, and last,
but not least, has made the world's markets
inaccessible to American manufacturers by
enormously increasing the cost of raw ma
terial and such partly manufactured articles
whichare not produced in this country, yet
enter into its manufactured goods.
Cleveland Greeted Heartily.
Chairman Steinway introduced Grover
Cleveland as "agentleman known, honored
revered and beloved, not only in America.
but the wide world over." Again the audi
ence broke loose and shouted "itself hoarse
in greeting to the ex-President Mr. Cleve
land was repeatedly and loudly applauded
at frequent intervals during his remarks.
Fellow-Citizets When I address you as
my "lello-n citizens" I use the salutation
common on occasions like this and one
which ordinarily carries with it no greater
meaning than a customary creetimr. It
teems to me, however, not amiss in the
presence of such an assemblage as I see be
joieuie to consider what it is that entitles
us to call each other .fellow-citizens. It is
at once apparent that we can only apply
the-e woiUs to American fellow .citizens.
proud of the land in which they live, prdud
of American institutions and devoted to the
achievementof Ameiican success nndgreat
uess. They do not requite that those
ho come to us from other lands
and become our people shall forget
their old homes, but they uo signify such an
assimilation on tneir part as leads them to
contriDute whatever is valuable in the char
acter they inheiit, in the country of their
birth, to the lund of American pi osperity
and happiness. Ir frugality and industry
are their national traits, those should be by
them contributed to American prosperity:
and if cheerfulness and a love of Bong are
their national characteristics, these should
he contiluuted to American happiness.
Those who do these thiius in true fraternal
spirit, and in co-operation with all others
w ho love the American name, and who also
i emulate tneir political action hythoushtful
nes and an anxious desire lor American
welfare, entitle themselves to membership
in the grand association of, American fellow
citizen. Another Very Important Meaning.
But there is another and exceedingly Im
portant meaning to besiven to these words,
which arises from the idea ot a fair and
equal community of Interests which they
uatuially suggest. If we are to be truly fel
low -citizens we must have, not only a com
mon purposo, but a common division of trie
benefits arising from our association. Our
citizenship grows out or our allegiance and
devotion to the Government which claims
our patriotic support; but we can hardly be
accused or straining tho meaning of woids
when we insist that if we are to be fellows
in our citizenship, this fellowship is only
lealized when we enjoy in an equal and just
manner the advantages of our citizenship.
W liether this is our actual condition is at
this time a subject of anxious popular in
quiry. We And a political party bollcitlng
the suffrages of our people in support ot the
doctrine that this fellowship in our citisen
ship is secured when the prosperity of cer
tain rspecial interests is favored in the
making and execution or our laws, and is
made a direct charge upon the Industry of
tlioe not within the citcie of Governmental
partiality. As a result ot the successful as
sertion of this doctiine, we flud enormous
unearned fortunes in the hands of a few in
dividuals, while those who, in an unequal
race, patiently rely upon personal thrift and
stuidy individual effort, are far in the rear.
Some Foundation for discontent
Inequalities of fortune furnish no ground
for discontent when they are due to differ
ences in enterprise, legitimate opportunity
or natural endowment. When, however,
theyaie traceable to Governmental inter
feience in behalf of a small minoiitvor our
people at the expen se of the remainder,
nothing but the deception of partian blind
ness of thoe who suffer can prevent them
from challenging this injustice and demand
ing the consideration duo them by virtue
of their fellowship in American citizensnlp.
I interpret the organization and activity
ot the German-American Union as protest
ing against the violation of the rights of its
members in this fellowship, and I conceive
t'lis demonstration to be a revolt against tho
mockery of calling those our fellow citizens
who are dcpiivea of an equal participation
in the advantages promised under free
American institution-. Let ns always re
member that unjust conditions are not due
to anv infirmity in the principles upon
which our Government is founded. They
aiesnfuclent forusin nil our needs. Injus
tice is born of their perveision.
Cle eland Closes AVltb. a Warning.
We are led, therefore, directlyto the con
clusion that the remedy for unfair inequalt--ties
in the distribution of the benefit of our
American citizenship is in the bands of the
voters of the land; and that if there has
been a departure from the lights which
should guide the operations of our Govern
ment It is for the people to demand a return.
to safe channels.
Let me warn von. in elnslni-. that tim
struggle to secure the rectification of false
methods and the dlslodgmeut or selfish
advantiges is not an easy one. Attempts to
cajole our voters, successful in tho past, and
still continued, and oriberyand corruption
ate still in vojue. It is only by Intelligent
argument, constant endeavor and unremit
ting vigilance that wo shall recover the just
and equal share of benefits which belong to
us as American fellow-citizens.
