Mr. Chairman and J'ullow-Citlzons:
Thu presunt scuson of unusual political
quiet in Indiana seems to mo remarkably

ebt soarch after thu truth. Tho dawn of
a new epoch In our politic, which was be

tho instinct of solf-prn.'urvatlon plead with

practical euqccss of our democratic experi
ment Is seriously menaced by tho labor
probloiri This subject is Involvod In what
1 baro said of tho monopolization of lands,
tho nrnwth of cities and tho power of cor
porations, but it demands a distinct recon-
sidoralios. i rignt adjustment ol tho re
lations of capital and labor is nbsoluto'y
nucossnry to tho permanent success of pop-
mar instiiuii'ins. wo navo seen this
ilhistrated-in tbo old slavo system of tho
south, which was simply an uxlrerno (orm
of tho tyranny of capital. It was tho log
leal climax ot that syslotn of political phil
osophy which makes tho protection of
property tho chief end of government.
Democracy teaches that thu laborer is
worthy of his hire, and that man is para
mount to wealth. Lot mo ray n word now
on federal usurpation. Tho constitution
oxpressly declares that tho power not del
egate 1 to tho L'uilod .States by tho consti
tution nor prohibited by it to tho states
ri'spuotivuly,or to tho people; but tho the
ory on which Got). Grunt conducts his re
mini. trillion is thut nil powers not con
ferred on tho states by tho constitution
nro reserved to tho I'nitod .Status, thus
complotoly overturning tho doctrines of
thu lathers, and setting ntdellanco tho ox
press words of tho constitution. This is
now tho political creed of tho men who
sit at tho riht hand of tho president, and
lio not only tramplo.3 down tho principle
ol local suii'governmoni, nut sets up his
own will asluw, oven against thu author
ity nf congress. In tho Him Domingo uf-
lair wo navo soon mm uoniiorateiy mtirp
