There Is no greater honor reserved
for n citizen of these United Stales
than to become the standard bearer
of tho Democratic party. It at once
enrolls his uanio on tho scroll of the
"Immortals who aro not born to die,"
and encircles him with a halo of the
glory of all tho Illustrious achieve

and patriots who have knelt for a

This high distinction must not 1m
unworthily bestowed. It must fol
low as a reward for noble actions
bravely done, for uureQuiled tireless

displayed, for trusts .discharged uud

whose public and private life most
nearly cxemplilloft his party's highest
Idenls; who stands unqunlltiedly pledg
ed to every Issue wo declare who will
carry tho standard wo place in his
hands, even as the Muck Douglas car
ried the sacred casket that inclosed
tho heart of Bruce.

tobacco trusts sign a bill providing

He must not denounce a policy as one
or "criminal aggression," and then at
tho demand of a power behind the
throne pursue tho policy ho has so de
nounced. He must not, while professing oppo
sition to combines and couspiraclcs
against trade, send Ids emissaries to
tho trust lmron castles to beg, like
Luzarous at Dives' gates, for subscrip
tions to his campaign.
Ho'iniiMt not lend the moral, support,
of his administration to a monarchy
in Its efforts to destroy a republic. Hut
ho must ever sympathize with a people
struggling lor the right of hell-govern-ment.
Instead of the Itepuhllcan policy of
monometallism, he must offer tho free
and unlimited coinage of the money
mclals of the constitution, the gold
that polished the winged scandals of
Hermes, and sliver that glitters In tho
bow of Din na.
Instead of panic-breeding, credit
currency, controlled by the bank trust,
he must offer government papcrjcon
trolled by tho people.
He must bo able to distinguish be
tween Democratic expansion and Ite
piibllcan imperialism. Tho ilrst Is a
natural growth by the addition of con
tlgiioim American territory, lii(o ev
ery foot of which Is carried the con-,
stltutlon, the flag and tlio Decalogue,'
anTl over the shoulders of overy Inhab
itant of tho added territory Is thrown
a purple robo of sovereign citizenship.
It Is a growth that has added eighteen
stars to the field of bluo in tho "ban
ner of I ho free," to symbolize the
States that have been carved from ter
ritory, annexed to tho domain of this
nation by the wisdom ami slatosjnaii

an expansion that Is bounded on the
east by the Monroe Doctrine;
ou the north by the constitution of the
rutted Stales; on tho south by tho
Declaration of Indepeudeuco nnd on
the wesf by the Ten Commandments.
How different this from the bandit
policy of Itepiibllcan Imperialism,
with lis standing army nud bayonet
rule of conquered provinces; Its gov
ernment of sullen subjects tigulns
their will, by force and fraud; lis de
nial to them of the piotcctlou of eith

Torn asunder by dissensions within

a gloomy and foiobodlug '1'iituro which

and the west he belongs to the whole
country at large. (Heiiowed applause
It Is a nomination already made In

can people. (Continued cheering aud
applause.) From the ciobing or tho polls
four years ago until this very hour
there never was a possibility of any
other nomination being made. (En
thuslustlo cheers and applause.) Ho is
a geutleman that needs no Introduction
in this convention nor to. tlio American
people. (Renewed applause aud cheer
ing.; Nebraska is proud of him, but
Now York is proud of him also. (Re
newed applause and cheering.) For
four years he lias upheld tho banner
of Democracy In almost every state in
tlio union. His voice has been heard
not only in behalf, of our principles,
but in behalf of tho cause of tho com
mon people, In behalf of the workiug
nian, in behalf of humanity. (Great
applause and cheering.; Ho will not
only have tlio support of his party a

waving of Hags lasting for three min
utes.) (Tlio band joined iu the dem

integrity in public oitice. (Loud ap
plause.) It -will mean the amelioration
of the people; it will mean tho destruc
tion of criminal trusts and monopo
lies. (Applause.) It will menu economy
and retrenchment in governmental af
fairs; It will mean the supremacy of
the constitution everywhere through
out this land wherever tlio Hag lloats.
(Applause.) It will mean a return to
the advocacy of the principles of tlio
Declaration of Independence. (Ap
plause.) It will prove a blessing not
only to those who vote for him, but
to tho few who may vote against him.
(Loud applause.) I, as you well know,
wns one or those who In good faith
doubted the wisdom of sonic of tho
portions of the platform; douutod the
propriety of going into details ou cer
tain portions of our iiiiaucial policy,
but tho wisdom of this convention has
determined otherwise and I ncQiiiescc
cheerfully In tho decision. (Loud ap
plause und cries of "Hurrah for Hill"
aud "Bryan and Hill.")
I am hero to say further that the
platform that has been read Is worthy
of tho vote and approval of every man
who claims to bo a Democrat In 'this
country. (Applause.) Those who do
not admire somo portions can spent
for others. If not la favor of the is
sues which they do not desire to pre
sent as strongly ns somo others, they
can at least talk about something in
this platform that is worthy of their
approval. At least in some 'portions of
tills country tlio paramount issue is
going to carry aud carry strongly.
(Applause.) This Is the tlmo for unity
und not ror division. (Applause.) I
plead tonight for party harmony and
parly success. I plead bpcauso of tho
dangers which confront us. As sure
as election day comes, and if wo
should happen to bo defeated, which
I do not believe, what will follow? It
means tho restoration of a federal
election law. It means a reduction
of the apportionment of members or
Congress throughout tho Southern
States of our Union. It means a con
sequent reduction In tho electoral col
lego from our Southern States uud tho
plea of necessity will bo made be
cause It will bo apparent by election
day that some of tho now born States
of tlio West, which thoy had relied
upon, had gone over to tho Democrat
ic party. (Applause.) so l am nero
to say that this is a most important
election; Important for out party; im
portant i'or our country; important
for tlio best Interests of all our people.
I havo no time now to annlyze this plat
form. We are speaking of. men and not
of measures now. This nomination
will meet tho approval, based upon
this plat form, of the people of tho
East. (Cheers.) What wo need Is an
old-ftibliloned, rousing Democratic vic
tory throughout this land. That will
mean a restoration of tho currency
of our fathers. (Great applause.) That
will mean homo rule for States. That
will mean tho .supremacy of equal
laws throughout tho country, and In
this groat result which wo hopu to
uohlevo I am hero to say simply In
