Governor Hill Speaks in the
The Issues of the Campaign
The Record of the Republican Party

If Logic Cuts a Figure in Ohio Politics
Major McKlnley's Defeat Is
Associated Press Dispatches. 1
Canton, Ohio, Oct. 21—Governor
Hill was greeted on hie arrival here to
day by a large throng. Tonight, after a
large torchlight procession of Demo
cratic clubs, bespoke to a crowd of three
thousand people at the rink. Many
were unable to obtain admission.
Governor Hill said in part: An im
portant political campaign is that upon
which the country has entered. The
question presented to our voters is not
whether the next house of representa
tives shall be Republican or Democratic,
but whether the nature of our govern
ment is to be radically modified, and the
integrity of our institutions successfully
threatened. The great issue is the rec
ord of the Republican party in its brief
control of congress. No party has more
recklessly defied precedents, more
boastfully overturned traditions,
more seriously invaded private rights,
more arbitrarily encroached upon
the prerogatives of states or more tyran
nically used the power of a' partisan
majority. The animating motive of its
acts seems to have been only the per
petuation of its own power. The party
has increased its majority in the house
of representatives by arbitrarily eject
ing Democrats from seats; stolen the
representation of one state in the sen
ate ; admitted to the union states whose
only claim to admission was that they
will swell the Republican majorities;
denied representation to Democratic
territories much better qualified for
statehood in point of population and re
sources; ignored the rightsof minority by
the tyrannical methods and ruling of
the speaker of the house; squandered
the treasury surplus by extravagant ap
propriations to conciliate particular in
terests : enacted a tariff bill which will
supply corruption funds for elections;
conducted a census denounced every
where as worthless, and manipulated
for counting Republican populations up
and Democratic populations down,.and
has threatened the enactment of a force
bill which will put an end to state
authority in the certification of federal
elections, and make congress not the
representative of the people, but the
creature of whatever men the federal
officials may choose to count in. This is
the record that confronts the people.
Long practice in hypocrisy has failed
the Republican leaders to disguise par
tisanship in patriotic language, but their
appeal after all is one to cupidity and
selfishness. Frightened by the disap
proval which their headstrong and revo
lutionary course has aroused in their
own party, they are endeavoring to
bolster up their shaky position by ap
peals to sectionalism and party pride. If
our institutions are to be preserved pure
and intact, every patriotic citizen must
do his duty in rebuking this grasping
and tyrannical political oligarchy.
After discussing the tariff, so far as it
relates to the- interests of the farmers,
the governor continued: But not only
has the Republican congress stooped to
a sharper trick to hoodwink the Ameri
can farmer in the matter of a tariff on
his products, but it has made his living
even more expensive than it hitherto
has been. His woolens pay thirty per
cent more duty, while the rich man's
broadcloth pays a duty of ten per cent
more. The duty on sealskin sacques is
reduced ten per cent, while that on silk
plush sacques, which the poor
woman wears, has increased sixty
perjjeent. The duty on worsted
shawls which the farmer's wife
wears, is raised from 62 to 80 per cent;
on woolen shawls the increase varies
from 16 per cent, to 30. On women's
and children's cheap dress goods the in
crease is not much less. For his flan
nels the consumer must pay an increase
of at least 50 per cent. On ready-made
clothing the increase of taxation is from
54 to 84 percent.
The governor mentioned several other
articles, and added: On milk pans, tin
pails, tin cans, coffee pots, kettles, cups
and other articles of tinware, the people
are to be taxed $60,000,000 for three
years, in order that a few manufacturers
may experiment with the tin plate in
If you think this is a partisan state
ment," read what a member of Harri
son's cabinet says about it in a recent
advertisement: "Tinware is advancing
in cost and very soon the manufacturers
wjll have their way, and you and I
will have to pay much more. In view
of this state of things we made some
time since a large purchase of kitchen
tinware, at what was a low price then
and would be far lower now, in the face
of two advances in the maker's price
[Signed] JonN Wanamaker."
All over the country the effect of such
legislation has been to increase the
prices of dry goods and other household
necessities. Not all of this increase is
perhaps justifiable, but sharp mer
chants Ijave been quick to take
advantage of the opportunity which the
McKinley bill offered them, and the
}>oor consumer is the victim, whether
ustly or not.
The McKinley bill has defined sharply
the issue upon which the two parties
are divided. In its enactment the Re
publican party has demonstrated more
clearly than ever that the sympathies of
its leaders are not with the great mass
of the people, but with a certain favored
class. The economic doctrine which that
party now supports is one it would haye
repudiated ten years ago, and which
some of &reat men like Blame are
evidently di> ring to repudiate now. At
a time when our industries are languish

ourselves and declare our policy of non
The time has come when other
markets must be sought—markets
not limited to the borders of our
own country or our continent, but aa
wide as the world. Our foreign trade
last year waa valued at $1,500,000,000.
Can we afford to jeopardize that im
mense source jof national wealth by
erecting legislative barriers to com
merce? I want to see the American
people busy supplying the markets of
the world with lood and clothing, and I
want to see American ships carrying our
produce over every sea. I want to see
the wealth of Europe and Asia and Can
ada and South America pour into this
country to increase the wages of every
laborer, and enrich every citizen. But
I do not expect to t ehofd such results
with the present economic system. VVe
have a commanding position for
international trade, bhall we take ad
vantage of it or abandon it? Shall we
encourage barter with other nations or
shall we discourage it" Shall we strike,
for an unhealthy and unprofitable ex-'
pansion of the home market, or seek an
outlet for our surplus products in for
One party, and unfortunately the
party in power, says the home market
is good enough. The other party holds
that the home market ia already over
auuplied; that high protective dutiea
produced unhealthy competition, re
sulting in over-production, closing of
mills and reduction in wages. It finds
great industries languishing because
of highly taxed raw materials
and limited markets. It perceives
the organization of great trusts and
combines to reduce competition and
extort high prices. It finds agriculture
depreased by reason of the restrictions
of our government impoaed upon the
commerce of other nations. Europe is
buying more and more of her breadstuff's
from Russia, India and Egypt. It sug
gests the removal of all unnecessary bar
riers to commercial intercourse, and rec
ommends the free admission of raw ma
terial used in manufactures. It will
impose higher duties tnan are neces
sary to meet foreign compet.ticn
on articles we produce. It en
courages that internal trade which
will keep our farmers and our
mills buay to aupply foreign wanta,
thereby giving steady employment to
labor, increasing wagea because of the
increased demand for labor, bringing
hundreds of millions of wealth into the
country, and permitting that general
happiness and prosperity to which the
nature of our population and our re
sources entitle us.
Reverting once more to the McKinley
bill, the speaker asked: "What"
would become of us if Europe should re
taliate by checking her import of bread
stuffs, cotton, oil and provisions from
the United States? We sent
abroad last year $742,000,000 worth
of gooda, and three-fourths of
them were agricultural producta.
What could recompense the country for
the loss of thia vast market? What
could alleviate the distress among all
classes of people? Well might Blame
say that the McKinley bill won't open a
new market for a single bushel of wheat
or a barrel of pork. Wo ought to feel
grateful if it does not deprive us of what
markets we have.
In conclusion Governor Hill spoke of
a contest in this (thesixteenth) congres
sional district, urging every Democrat to
vote for Warwick, the Democrat candi
date. For Major McKinley he had the
highest respect, but there never had
been a partisan outrage attempted
against the Democratic party which Mc-
Kinley had not supported, besides being
instrumental in forcing upon the coun
try that which can properly be desig
nated as "the sum ot all villai.ies."
Governor Campbell's Message Received
Columbus, 0., Oct. 21.-—The house
this morning adopted a resolution as
the sense of that body that no insult was
intended on the part of the house in
the refusal of the speaker to accept the
governor's message" yesterday evening,
and appointing a committee to call upon
the governor and request that the mes
sage be again sent to the house.
Governor Campbell complied with the
request. The message recommends that
the legislature pass a law providing that
a non-partisan board of improvement
for Cincinnati be appointed by the
mayor, and that an election be held in
April. He scores the lobby which, he
says, has been here from Cincinnati in
the interest of the present board
of improvement. He says their open
declarationa that they are controlling
legislation ought to be a sufficient indi
cation that the members of the board
are in bad repute, and should be abol
ished at once.
Governor Campbell's message was
read in the senate this afternoon and re
ferred. Following this a strong attack
was made on the governor by Senator
Brown of Cincinnati, who condemned
the governor's course relative to the
board of improvements of Cincinnati.
The senate passed a bill providing that
Mayor Mosley shall have the appoint
ment of the members of the new board,
and that an election shall be held in
April. The bill is non-partisan in char
acter, and abolishes the present board.
The measure is in line with Governor

Do not be disconcerted about pricea. If
pricea go up, aa the result of general
prosperity, the people will have the
money to pay them. The Democratic

be settled before others. The opponents
of home rule had hoodwinked and de

themselves against coercion, promising
local government and expressing them
selves against granting larger advances

law was worse than tbe law itself. The
government itself was a perfect pattern
of illegality. Its methods tended to
provoke the people.
Gladstone referred to the Tipperary
affair. It was grossly illegal, he said,
to close the doors of the court bouae
againat the people. The appointment'
of Magiatrate Shannon to try the case
waa a gross scandal. If such tricks
were played in England by the wanton
ness of power, a very short way would
be found to remedy such abuse. As per
example of police misconduct at
Mitchellstown and Tipperary, it was im
possible to respect the police or the
adminiatrtion of law by them. Their
brutality and harshness constituted
a crowned insult of absenteeism, the
grossest that could be inflicted on the
people at such a time. The government
vaunted itself on peace in Ireland, yet
kept six times more policemen there
than in England and Scotland. The
British taxpayers paid over a million
and a half pounds yearly to Irish po
