When all were seated. at the tables
Rev. J. W. Klise lnvocated the divine
In his opening remarks Mr. Farls
told of the organization of the Demo
cratlcClub; that it had Its county
officers ; that the hope was to organizo
a club in every precinct and that the
president of the precinct club would
ex officio be a vice president of the
county club ; that he considered the
first banquet of the 'club a most auspi
cious occasion and hoped that the ban
quets would become annual affairs.
He then Introduced Judge J.B. Worley.
Mr. Worley welcomed the Democrats
to the meeting ; said how glad he was
to see such a goodly number present
and how glad he was to be with them
that as the toastmaster had warned
him to be sure and not take up more
than five minutes he would have to
make his remarks brief, He referred
to the recent victory of the Democratic
party and of the good that he thought
would result to the country from It
and closed with a hearty welcome to
the assembled Democrats.
Prosecuting Attorney N. Oralg Mc
Brlde was next introduced. Mr. Mc
Bride spoke of his admiration for An
drew Jackson and of how it had started
when as a school boy he had read of
Andrew Jackson, when 11 years oldi
refusing to black the boots of a British
general. He said that while the troops
that Jackson had defeated at New
Orleans had fought at the battle of
Waterloo that it had nothing to do
with .the Waterloo of last fall. He
closed by an expression of his faith In
the principles of the Democratic party.
Former Representative O. C. Muhl
back was on the program to respond
to the toast "The Last Legislature"
but was ill and unable to be present.
At this time Mr. Farls read letters
from Gen. O. H. Hughes and Hon. W.
W. Durbin, expressing their regrets at
being unable to be present.
Mr. Farls Inttoduced Rev. J. W.
Klise as a Democrat of the time of
Jackson who would give afew reminis
cences of that period.
Mr. Klise is unexcelled in making a
talk on such occasions. With his first
remark, which was that he was born
in 1837 during a great commercial
panic and had been financially embar
rased ever since, he had the crowd with
him and held their interest to the
close. He said that the great prlnci
pies upon which this government was
founded were religious and civic liber
ty that Jackson was true to these
principles and for that reason he still
impressed his personality on the Demo
cratic party. He dwelt upon these
principles eloquently and Interspersed
his remarks with witty statements
and humorous stories.
Hon. O. N. Sams next responded to
the toast, "Yesterday, Today and To
morrow." He told of how hard it was
to be a Democrat when he was a boy ;
how he was urged not to join the
Democratic party which he was told
was a reactionary party, only a party
of opposition and how he was urged to
join the Republican party, which he
was told was the militant, progressive
and strong party. He said that today
his joining the Democratic party had
proved to be an act of wisdom, as the
Republican party was now the party
of reaction and that all that had been
good In it had left it and gone with
Theodore Roosevelt Into the Progres
sive party, but that all of the good
principles advocated by the Progres
sive party had been stolen from the
Democratic party, which was the real
party of progress. He told of a recent
banker's meeting he had attended and
said that every one was confident that
An important meeting of the nigh

being present on Friday night. The
business is of great Importance and a
large number shoul 1 attend this meeting.

This was the main speech of the even

entertaining talker. He devoted moat
of his time to a discussion of the pres
ent day political problems both state
and national. He is an out and out
absolute free trader. He considers the
protective tariff a crime and said that
it had benefitted no one but the man
ufacturers that were protected ; that
the working man had never received a
bit higher wages on account of the
protective tariff and that he had had
to pay more for what lie bought ; that
it was in the factories that receivad
the most protection that the poorest
wages were paid ; that the unprotected
laborers received the best wages. To
support his claim he cited a factory
in Cincinnati which he said paid the
poorest wages of any concern In that
city and shipped its products into
Europe and sold them cheaper than it
did at home, na is also a thorough
believer in Union labor, says that it
is the only hope or tho laboring man
for better conditions
to tho present conditions of labor for
women and said that changes must be
made on account of the coming genera
tions. His greatest hit was made when
he eulogised Col. Bryan, who he said
would be secretary of State in Presi
dent Wilson's cabinet. He took a shot
at Col. Roosevelt, who he said turned
from a reactionary to a progressive
over night, simply because he wanted
office. He assured his hearers that
