Wow, air I wish the couutry to
take note of this. Wo gave them
full wuf ning lour years ago that il
theuow dominant puity dommani

nuiuLcrs. us would have been shown
had there beju a lair expression ol
the popular will at the last ekc'.i n

ol BOino Sixty, or seventy, or ninety
millions ol dollars being spout in a
year, the uuiouut would reach hun
dreds ot millions.- And we eaiu
mure 1 mean no personal oU'cUae,"
but the honorable 'Senator said that
however unpopular it was be must
speak tho truth, and 1 am now simply
speaking the truth we told the peo
ple then that it this party ever got
into power they would steal mure in
one year liuin the public Treasury
than any Democratic Auministraih n
hud expended during its coutiuuuuco.
And Ut uiu Bay here tliat the thanks
of tho country are due to a dis iu-
guished member ol the other House
irom iUassachusetts win adiuit'.eJ the

expended duriug tho whole ot Mr.

Mr. iJrcsideul, let tue say to day,
iu my placo iu tho Senate of the
United States, in the presence ot the
couutry, that such expositions as tho
nouoraole Senator from New Hamp

caused me to be glad and to rejoice
that 1 was born in the good old
