supremo question always has been, not what Is
more "political" bu Is everlastingly "right."
The great men wo havo gl.on to tho nation
and to history, tho mighty dead and tho illus

strength. If wo aro but truo to their exalted
example wo can not bo false to our country
men. Torn third of a century prior to the advent
of tho present democratic administration we
operated under laws enacted by tho republic
an party. All great measures concerning the
tariff and tho currency originated k with it
Tariff laws wore formed upon lines which pro
tected our laborers and producers from un
equal and unjust foreign competition nnd up
on tho theory that the best raarkot In tho
world Is the homo market and that should bo
enjoyed by our own countrymen.
Under tho currency laws our currency was
made national. Tho wildcat state bank mon
ey of tho democratic party was wiped out of
existence. Tho unprecedented demands grow
ing out of tho war wero met by a paper cur
rency which ultimately became as good as
gold. SInco tho resumption of specie pav

pdr, silver and gold has been of equal pur
chasing power tho world over. Tho policy of
tho party has been to mnko and koep our cur
rency equal to the best In the world
Under tho operation of these honest tariff
and honest money republican laws the country
grew in wealth and power beyond precedent.

commercial race. On November 8, 1892, thcro

of the republican party bore Its natural fruit
i thos. n. HEED.
In shaken confidence, unsettled busi

along tho rock of destruction. lioforc
tho work of demolition had actually begun, n
run was started upon tho treasury reserve
which tho republican party had wisely accum
ulated for tho protection of the government
credit. Tho drain upon tho reserve for tno
redemption of greenbacks and treasury uotcs
greatly surpassed all prior experience and em
phasized tho discredit into which tho demo
cratic administration had fallen. An utter
want of cantldenco In tho administration pos
sessed the people.
Tho democrotlo party was harmonious upon
one subjeot, and that was the destruction of
the McKlnloy tariff law, but when they tame

Tho scctlonnl favoritism of the Wilson law

Tho substitution of ail valorem for specific

the current obligations of tho government.
This is in sharp contrast with tho republi
can record. Our tariff laws not only raised
revenue, but they protected our domestic In
dustries; they impartially protected the
