"When an election to oflice" .-hall le
the selection the voters of one of
their number to' a-sume for a lime a
public tru-t instead of his dedication
to the jirofessii.n of politic-, when the
holders id' the ballot, quickened leva
sense of duty, shall avenu'e truth be
trayed and pledges broken, and when
the suffrage .-hall be altogether free and
uncorrtipted. the full realization of a
Government by the people will be at
hand. And iif the means to this .end
not one would, in my judgment, be
more effective than an" aiii'-ndim nt to
the Constitution di-cii;i!i: in the
1'resident from re-election. When we
consider the iatronaLre of this jrreat
oilice. the allurement of power, the
temptation to retain public place once
gained, and. more than all. the availa
bility a party tinds 111 an incumbent
whom a horde of oilice-holders with a
zeal born of benefits received, and fos
tered by the hope of favors yet to come,
st&nd ready to aid with "money and
trained political service, we recognize
in the eligibility of the' 1'resident lor
re-election a most serious danger to
that calm, deliberate and intelligent
jiolitical action which must character
ize a Government by the penple.
"A true American sentiment recog
nizes the dignity of labor and the fact
that honor lies' in honest toil. Con
tented labor is an element of National
prosperity. Ability to work constitutes
the capital and the wanes of labor the
income of a vast number of our popu
lation: and this interest should be
jeaJoiihly protected. Our woi kinsmen
are not asking unreasonable indulgence;
but. as intelligent and manly citizens,
they seek the same consideration
which those demand who have other
intere.-is at slake. They should receive
their full share of the care and atten
tion of those who make mid execute
the Jaws, to the end that the wants and
needs of the employers and the employ
ed shall alike be subserved and the
prosperity of the country, the common
heritage of hoth.be advanced. As re
lated to this subject, while we should
not discourage the iinmitrration of
those who come to acknowledge allegi
ance to our Government and add to our
citizen population, yet as a means of
protection to our Workimmcn. a differ
ent rule should prevail concerning
those who, if they come, or are brought
to our land, do not intend to leome
Americans, but will injuriously com
pete w ith those justly entitled to our
iield of labor.
'in a letter accepting the nomina
tion to the oilice ot Governor nearly
two years a?o I made the follovin"r
statement, to which 1 have steadily ad
hered: 'The laboring classes constitute
the main part of our population. They
r tumid be protected in their efforts
pc.ccably to assert their rights when
endangered l,y aggregated capital, and
all statutes on this subject should rec
ognize the care of the state for honest
toil and be trained with a view at im

"J 11 a free con 11 try the curtailment of

munity. The limit between the proper

those which can be more littingly left

straint of the citizens should bo care

fully kept in view. Thus laws 11mec-e--a'rily
interfering with the habits and
customs of au one of our people, which
are not offensive lolhc moral sentiments
of the civilized world, and which are
consistent with good citizenship and
the public welfare, are unwise and vex
atious. 'The commerce of a nation to a great
extent determines its supremacy.
Cheap and easy transportation should
therefore be liberally lostered. W it ti in
the limits of the Constitution the Gen
eral Government should so improve
and protect its natural waterwaxs as
enable the producers of 'the co'inlry to
reach a profitable market.
"The people pay the wages of the
public employes, and they are entitled
to the fair and honest work which the
money thus paid should command. It
is Ihe'diitv of those i lit 1 listed w ith the
management of their a Hairs to see that
such public service is forthcoming.
The selection and retention of subor
dinates in government cmplov nienl
should depend upon their ascertained
litnessand the value of their work,
and they should be neither expected
nor allowed to do questionable party
service. The interests of the people
will be better protected; the estimate
of public labor and duty will be im
mensely improved; public cmplov nietit
will be 'open to all whocan demonstrate
their lit ness to enter it; the uii-oeiuly
scramble for place under the goeni
ment, with the consequent importunity
which embitters ollicial life will cease,
and the public departments will not be

such that the voters of the hind are

gives the best promise of administer

They have learned that mystery and

Since Mr. Illaine has gone into the
libel suit business it will occurto a good
many people that it would be an excel
lent idea for him to extend the good
woik. Many of his organs characterize
his Indianapolis lawsuit as. the bravest
and most heroic achievement of the
age. If to bring one libel suit against
a newspaper which makes no claim to
commanding influence, wealth or circu
lation, is a noble and a god-like act.
what would be the glory to be derived
from a combat in the courts with the
Chicago Ti'ibunr, the Cincinnati Com.
iittiTt'il, the Washington l!iinl,!ir
and the St. Louis IHubi-Ihinnriv!.' All
of these papers have made charges
against Mr. Illaine quite as libelous, if
untrue, as the allegations of the Indi
In ls"ii the Chicago Trihuni said of
Mr. Illaine: "They (the Kepublieiin-)
knew him as a lobbyist before he enter
ed Congress, seeking contracts for the
supply of arms. They knew him while
in Congress and while Speaker, fts the
inside friend of wild-cat corporations,
ruling as Speaker to save their bills, as
claiming reward for his ollicial action,
and as engaged in selling the worthless
bonds of such corporations, receiving
large gratuities therefor."
In the St. Louis iU,,,.Jh),iin-ea of
Dec. liMsl. occur these words: "Mr.
lil.iine is better calculated, evidently,
to get us into a war with some foreign
power than any Secretary of State we
have had for a long time,'' and on M;iv
SH. lssl. the same paper said: "Mi-,
lilaine is an unclean man and the peo
ple will not have him. He stands self
convicted of prostituting the high oili
ces he has held to build up a private
fortune, of cohabiting with corruption
for dishonest money. His record
would damn him."
Ill the Cmcmmiti C,i,!te ,,f 11...
her 11, 1S.SI, may be found these words:
Mr. lihiine's retirement I from the Cab
inet) is a matter of congratulation."
and the Cincinnati I'mnim n-inl of June
7. s7o, said; "The lilaine letters, we
believe, prove all that he has been
charged with. The troublesome fact is
that there is a low tone of public mor
ality in the estimation of the uses of
public position for private gain."
In September, lss, the Washington
HtiitKUct,,, addressing Mr. Illaine and
relening to the Mulligan letter episode
of l-Tii, said: "You escaned the dis
cussion of everything unpleasant to
ou ili.it ear by being defeated. You
escaped discussion before your defeat
because the Democrats hoped, and the

timations injurious to the character of
Mr. lilaine. Midi ot tiiein as were ut

Mr. Joy on a certain Decision went to
Washington to influence legislation in
lavor of a certain railroad in which he
was concerned. Mr. lUaine was Speak

appointing the eomtuiltees. lie had
an interview with Mr. Ulaiueaiid sug
gested to him the appointment of a
certain Congressman to the committee
which would have charge of the legis

It has been rumored for some time
that Mr. lilaine was contemplating a

with Mr. Cotikling. and if possible,
"placating" that gentleman, ''lie ru

serted that Mr. Cotikling was aln-adv
"placated". Hut in this cas-the wish

here are depressed and despon

the apparent diiliciilties in the way of

That message, which ha-, been widely
published, preceded his election us gov'

No. ss entitled "All acl authorizing Ihe
hoard of supervisors of Chautainpta county
to appropriate money for tiie purchase of
land upon w Inch to erect a soldiers' and
sailor, monument," is herewith returned
It is not an agreeable duty to refuse to
give sanction to the appropriation of money
for such a worthy and patriotic object, hut
J can not forget that the money proposed
to he appropriated is public induev to ho
raised by taxation, iiiid that all that justifies
its exaction from the peopio isthc necessity
of its use for purposes connected w ith the
safety and substantial welfare of the tax
payers. The application of this principle fur
nishes, I think, ii siillieient reason why tiiis
bill should not be approved.
J am of the opinion, ton, that the appro
priation of this money by tlie hoard of sup
ci visors would constitute the incurring of
an indebtedness hv the county to be there.
utter met hy taxation. If this be true, the
proposed lenisiutiiiii is forbidden by section
11 ol 'article S ot the constitution, whie.li
provides that no county, city, town, or vil
lage shall be allowed to incur nny indebted

before this prohibition became n part of
the constitution, n hi ut nt t was passed per
