Henry Clay, Thos. Jefferson, Jas
Madison and jas, Monroe were
emancipationists. A s statesmen
they could look down the stream of
time and see the great "Civil War.'
They obtained Siberia on the coast
of Africa, built Its capital and nam
ed It Monrovia for James Monroe
Many emancipationists liberated
their slaves and sent them to Siberia
They advocated peaceful emancipa
tion and wanted the United States
government to pay slave owners
$400 for able-bodied negro men and
proportionate prices for women and
children. If this could have been
done the Civil War would have been
obviated and we should have no race
problem now. All the thousands of
lives lost in the Northern and South
ern armies, and the millions and bil
lions of dollars paid out to carry
on the war on both sides and the pen
siona would have been saved.
But the abolitionists and demo
crats fought the emancipationists
then )ust as the republicans and
democrats fight the prohibitionists
and independent voters now. The
abolitionists demanded that the
slaves be liberated and made citi
zens. The democrats demanded
that they remain in slavery, and
these two parties admitted no mid.
die ground for emancipationists.
Henry Clay wanted to be presi
dent and rinding that emancipation
was not popular he founded the great
protective tariff under the old line
whig party. After laying the foun
dation for the protective tariff he
saw it grow until it frightened him.
If he had been able to stop the war
he would have done so. He intro
duced one compromise after another,
but he knew they were only tempor
ary. After the great Missuori Com
promise was passed he said to Thos
Benton in the presence of Jefferson
Davis "The war has been put off for
thirty years. You and I shall not live
to see it, but our young friend here,
pointing to Davis, will live to see it
Still the tariff grew, and if Clay, its
founder, had lived to see one more
presidential election he would have
voted the democratic ticket and been
forever branded as a traitor to his
In the same way, James Madison
saw the Injustice of the war of 1812.
England did not want to fight us.
She had all she could do to fight Na
poleon. But he took advantage of
the French Revolution, the sympa
thy of the democrats in the United
States because France had aided us
in our Revolution and sent ministers
here to stir up strife between our
government and the populace. Madi
son wanted another term as presi
dent, and yielded to the popular
clamor for war.
There was as little need for the
Spanish War. Spain was in no con
dition to fight the United States and
wanted no war. She proposed that
if the United States would become
security for the $400,000 she had
spent on Cuba that she would give
Cuba freedom. Mr. McKinley issued
a proclamation favoring our becom
ing security for this debt, but the
demagogues at once shouted 'Cow
ard, coward," sent him some sacks
of sand, and the papers begun to de
clare that our president needed a
back-bone, some sand in his gizzard,
etc. He wanted to be president
again, and yielded to the popular
out-cry, congress voted $2,000,000
at once to carry on the war when it
refused to vote one fourth this much
as security to keep the peace.
Statesmen tell us that the life of
the republic is trembling in the bal
ance to-day. Nick Longworth has
told us that it is agreed that Judge
Taft is to be president for eight
years, then the "Big Stick" is to
govern the country for eight more
years, ana modesty loroids that tie
hould say who is to be next. He
now denies saying this, but 5,000
people who heard him, say he said
We know that the President and
office holders forced Taft on the
people, The rank and file of the re
publican party is not for Taft. But
the "Big Stick" nominated him and
Teddy is managing his campaign,
and will manage it until the Novem
ber election. Do the people who
know him think he will lay down the
lines after the election to suit him-

Thinking sober men of all parties
are pondering these things. We
have, six or seven tickets in the field,
but every body knows "Bill Taft or
Bill Bryan" will be elected. . Sober,
discreet men are supporting Bryan
to-day who have not voted the demo
cratic ticket for years. Others are
thinking of voting jt, but demagogues
are hooting and yelling at them, and
telling them they must do penance
before they can associate with demo
crats. These men are denouncing
the governor for calling out troops
to guard our factories when they
were asked for by as true a demo
crat as our county has. Demagogues
make infiamatory speeches, tell
smutty jokes to arouse the prejudice
of such men as make night-riders
and burn factories while they are
just playing into the hands of the
produce gamblers. If a good man
makes a sound sensible argument he
is no speaker because he has not ap
pealed to the prejudice of the ex
treme element. Such demagogues
drive some of the best citizens in the
country from the polls by their in
