OBJECTS TO MOKE BONDS.
Mr. Talbert's Speech Before the
House of Representatives.
Mr. Chairman, in the few
minutes that I shall have the
privilege of occupying the floor on
the measure now under considera
tion I shall not attempt to go into
the merits or demerits of a war
with Spain, for that matter, right
or wrong, has now been docided,
"the die is cast," "the rubicon is
crossed." War is on, as the belch
ing of the enemy's cannon from
Morro Castle has already announc
ed to the world. There ie no
alternative now left us; we must
either fight or surrender. And
which will we do? We have but
to glance at the pages of our past
history to fiud the answer recorded.
Then if we must fight, we must
have something with which to
fight ; and the best thing we can
have is money, for it commands
all th9 necessaries. How, then,
will you get that money? Some
have one plan, and some another.
Some say one class ought to furn
ish it, and some say another.
Our friends of the majority say
we must issue bonds, that we have
not sufficient moneys with which
to go to war, and this in spite of
the statement of the distinguiphed
chairman of the Ways and Means
Committee that we now have some
$60,000,000 available money in the
Treasury and $42,000,000 of silver
seigniorage, which makes $102,
000,o00, and that this bill, outside
of the bond feature, will produco
some $100,000,000, running it up
to $202,000,000. And now, if this
is not sufficient to run us till Con
gress inaets again, why not issue
nonintere8t-bearing Treasury notes
based on the patriotism and good
faith of the people of our country,
instead of interest-bearing bonds
to still further burden and oppress
not only this present generation,
but geneations yek unborn?
Mr. Chairman, I am in favor of
voting all the mon9y that is
necessory to carry on this war,
but I think it is au outrage and
a disgrace on our nation that this
emergency should be taken ad
vantage of to make more money
for the rich and to still further
grind down our poor laboring
people into the very dust. Let
me warn you, fellow-members, be
careful of your actions at this time,
lest you enrage (and justly so)
this class of our people. As every
eitzen receives the protection of
his county, so every one ought to
bear his part in supporting his
Government, both in times of peace
and in times of war. And the
more a man has to be protected
byhi8 G>vernment, the more he
ought to be willing to contribute
and to sacrifice for its support,
and especially in a time like this,
when we are just appoaching into
the awful presence of cruel war.
But, Mr. Chairman, in such times
we find this class of our citizens
gathering up their bags ot gold
and seeking secure hiding places.
They are "invincible in peace and
invisible in war."
I fully realize the fact, as I have
already said, that we now need
and must have money with which
to wage this conflict, bul am not at
all in sympathy with all the details (
of this bill that has been reported
to the House by Mr. Dingley from
the Committee on Ways and
MeanE, because I believe it proposes
to raise this desired revenue, in
the greater part, from the wrong
source. I believe its object is to
raise it fromthe moderately well
to-do and the poorer, laboring
classes of our people. And this
is why I do not favor all of its
details. For instance, there ?3 the
one item of medicine that this bill
proposes to tax more heavily. It
already costs a plenty, and this
bill proposes to run it up still
It seems that even when the poor
mau is sick and ueeds it more thau
all things else he is to be forbidden
to have it. And when his wife and
children whom he has left illy
provided for get sick and are at
death's door they must be doomed
to die because they are notable to
buy medicine. And all this is to
be done by that Government that
affords so much protection to the
rich man's property but suffer the
loved ones of the poor soldier to
die while he is fighting BO nobly
for this same Government. I
simply mention thu* ZB a sample
and could give you others of a
similar type but for lack of time.
War is an awful thing, but
specially so for the poorer, working
people of our country ; for they
always have the brunt of its bat
tles and its hardships to hear.
And this war, I take it, is no ex
ception to the general rule that
"it is the rich man's war and the
poor man's fight." And the com
mittee, Mr. Chairman, do not seem
satisfied with the poor man doing
the fighting, but they also seem
disposed to make him pay the
revenue that is required to carry
it on. It is not right; it is unjust;
it is unfair; yea, Mr. Chairman,
I think it is an outrage! It seems
to me that if the committee who
has this matter in charge had
wiRbed to do the right thing, the
best thing, and the thing in whi<
there is the most justice to all t]
people, the poor as well as the ric
in addition to what I have alreac
suggested, they should have repoi

Then the rich, those who ha

never to Bee home and loved ones

Nothing is to be thought or said of

body, but I tell you, Mr. Chairman,
it is a nice state of affairs if the
moneyed men of this nation can
come to its Congress and say to
any of its committees, "Thus and
thus shall you rei ort to your House,
and thus and thus shall yon not
report," and can then go further
and say to the judges on the
Supreme Bench of our United
States, "Such and such decisions
shall you render, such and such
decisions shall you not render;
you must pronounce the income
I do not assert that this has been
done ; I only hope that such has
not been the case, and if it has not,
may God forbid that it ever shall

times look very, very peculiar,
indeed. But, fellow-memberB, thi^
is no time for parleying over petty
differences ; no time for dillydally
ing and trifling, but it is time for
action-wise and manly action.
War is on us and you say we need
money and must have. If so, let
?B get it in the right way and from
the right source, and in my opin
ion, that source is, in part at least,
an income tax. I know that it
will require nerve and backbone for
some of you, representing the
districts and interests that you do,
to vote for this proposition and
against this bond issue, but in my
opinion the presbing necessity of
the hour demands it, justice to the
greater part of the country dem
ands it, justice to ourselves dem
ands it, aDd justicB to our soldiers
Now, will we givo it to them?
Do any of you wear Wall street's
collar? Are any of you shackled
by the money power? Are you
afraid to do your duty in thi? ex
igency by voting for an income
tax and opposing the issue of
bonds? God forbid J But if so, let
me urge you in this momentous
time to catch yourselves, as it
were, by the boot straps and to
lift yourselves above partisanship,
sectionalism, and little petty
differences. Rise up in your
might and break off these manacles
and bands of the moneyed interests
of the nation, and, realizing
the importance of the measure and
the great justice of this step that
I advocate, strike hands with us
ind vote for right against might.
Support the income tax, oppose the
issue of bonds, and lot the moneyed
men of the country thiuk of you
just whatever they may please to
think, and the nation will rise up
to call you blessed.
