THOMAS A. lir-jrORIUKft,
While much may be accomplished by
these methods, it might encourage delusive
expectations II I withhold here the expres

exposed the futility of self-impot-ed rei-trio-tlons

Shklbyviixk, Sept. 2. The Demo

largest held la the slate in the campaign.
Ten to twelve thousand persons were
present. Gov. Hendricks was received
with great enthusiasm and manifestations
of welcome to his county. Ou being in
troduced, the governor spoke as iouows:

When you say that corruption fer
Vades the public service; that a great
army ol ottleers cat out your substance,
and that waste and extravagance In ex
penditures destroy your resources, tiov.
Morton and his followers denounce your
complaints as bosh and demagogucry."
But they must excuse you Ironi beetling
their denunciations. They have been ac
tors in these things, conspicuous, con
trolling, responsible. Their conduct and
that of their political confederates is pass
ing under the judgment of the people.
Corruption Is found evreywhere, un
checked by the men retained iu power.
It is found in every department ot the
serTice it is proven in investigations ; in
reports ; in dismissals ; in impeachments ;
In indictments, verdicts and judgment.
Must this great host ol officeholders be

And shall the national expenditures con

Upon whic h side do you stand r Arc

THE PRACTICAL l ESTIOX.
I now assume that. Intelligently and
earnestly, yon are in favor of retorni ;
that you sincerely desire an improve
ment in the public service, so that it shall
become purer, more etncient and less ex
pensive. The practical question of these
times is, how cau these results be at

answer Is found in investigations, reports,

WHOSE FAULT IS IT
That there has been no reform, but on
the contrary that the public service has
been drifting Irom bad to worse f It is
not altogether fair to charge it altogether
upon Gen. u rant, mat charge springs
truin an unfair motive on the part of a
class of Republicans who seeK Gov.
Hayes' election upon the ground that he
can accomplish reforms winch uen.
Grant could not or would not bring
about. Upon this subject Gov. Morton
expressed the following opinion in his
late speech :
'The administration ol any president
will be in the main, what the party which
elected him makes it. If he breaks away
from his party the chances arc that he
will be broken down In a government
of parties like ours the premdent must
have his choice of officers. The men to
whoin he owes his election, who have
defended him from assaults, to whom he
must look lor support iu the future, will
ordinarily control his action, and lie will
do nothing offensive to fhcni."
In a large degree that exprcsse the
truth In respect to Gen. Grant's admin
istration, it is what its leaders have
made it. Four years a:o. in my own
ing address as a candidate tor governor, I
expressed my personal respect lor i;en.
Grant in the opinion that the people had
less cause to apprehend an evil policy
from him than from the malign and pow-
ful influences with which he would be
surrounded. You all know that the re
suits have more than realized my predic
tions. I ivu service reform is now
sneered at, and has ceased to be even a
pretence. Wasteful expenditures have
continued, and official misconduct has
become widespread and alarming. Surely
the preshlcnt cannot be relieved of re-
ponsibiilty for so snamriui a condition
ot public affairs, but yet the admliiir-tra-tion
is, In the main, what
THE J'AltlV MAN Alii. ki
Make it. Will it be otherwise if that
party elects the successor 1 Do you find
the ground of such a hope and expecta
tion in the cauiddate himself 't Do you
claim that he is a person of higher per
sonal integrity man Uen. Grant r And
that hti will more certainly keen his
pledges to the people f Or do you think
he is a man of stronger will to stand by
his convictions and his pledges? Gen.
Grant bad four years of civil experience

and party leaders brought about hiui.

'I say to the Democracy that if their in

abuses, aud punish ilie offender, and we
mean to redeem the pledge." Why must
it bo left to Democrats to detect and ex
pose official abuses Why does the
pledge not include that nlsoY Hut the
past does not justify any coiilidciico in
the pledge when made lor the party and
administration)1 When the fraudulent
contracts tor the collection ot the reve
nue at a ruinoin per vnf.. were exposed,
and the iiidignutioii of the coplo com
pelled Richardson, tho secretary of the
treasury, to resign, was the offender pun
ished? On the contrai-y. within two
weeks he was appointed to a lili- office,
iu which he adjudicates claims against the
United States aud his appointment was
continued by the senate.
During the late session it was reported
to the house that the superintendent of
public printing had been guilty ot ex
travagance, va.te and favoritism, costing
the United States moro than ouc-half mil
lion dollars annually. So gross were the
faults that the irjwrt recommended the
inquiry whether the superintendent was
au officer of the United States and liable
to i m peach men t. The result of the re
port was a change of the law so as to dis
charge the superintendent, and to pro
vide for the appointment of a. successor.
Within a tew days before the adjourn
ment the president reinstated the same
man and the appointment was continued
by tho senate. 1 need not refer to the
case of the proont minister to China, and
his connection w iili the Credit Mobiler
before his appointment and confirmation;
nor to other cases. It U very plain that
the leaders of the party will imt aliow
their partv Iricuds. to bo cxpo.'d and
I have another impiirv to make of you,
the answer to which will inlliicnee j our
your votes. Have you reason lo confide
iu and rely upon the. pledge of reform
made at St. Louis ? I In; pledges were
distinctly made ; not so in the Cincinnati
platform. There no reform, no retrcch
inciit was promised. The a-ssurance that
the civil service should be purified, the
expenditures reduced, aud useless offices
abolished would have been a rthuke and
condemnation of the administration of
Gen. Grant. On the contrary the Cin
cinnati platform declares the "national
administration merits commendation for
its honorable work in the management
Ot domestic aud foreign affairs." Rut
may you trti-t to the pledges made at
fet. Louis ? Who will be most likely to
aboli-u tho thousands ot useless offices ;
In some Instances they were created lur
party favorites, and in others I hey have
been continued after their occasion has
ceased. They are now tilled and their
emoluments enjoyed by men who con
tribute money and bestow tlu ir labor to
elect Gov. Hayes.
Gov. Tilden will encounter no political
embarrassment iu correcting this great
evil. Not so with Gov. Hayes. Tiiis
reform requires that tlioiiind-i of places
of profit be made vacant now filled by
his supporters. The present house is
Democratic. Has it not proved itself
true to everv pledge given V Iu its inves
tigations it lias gone as thoroughly into
tho work as was possible for nvu to do
who had been excluded from the records
and departmuuto for many year. In tho
reductions of expenditures and the abo
lition of useless offices, it went as tar as
the persistent, opposition of the senate
would allow. Have you occasion to bo
Offended with this house? llasiu work

was it not for you that useless cilices
were alollhc.l that thirty million dol
lars were saved, and that tin: enormous
corruption was brought to light ' If this
house had not iK-en Democratic, do you
not know that Gen. IMknap would still
be the secretary of war ': Rccauso the
house Is ot and for the people, it is de
nounced by every epithet that a vicious
political taste can command. It has been
deemed sufficient to say that Uclktiap
was a I lemocrat until made secretary of
war. Does that, indeed, satisfy you?
As a Democrat ho remained without a
spot upon his character until the meridian
of his manhood, hut so soon ns he enmo
under the new associations be fell. That
is, indeed, attributing a terrible inllnenec
to the habits that have obtained at Wash

of expenditures beyond legitimate In
