compelled to issue bonds and to beg

south cotton was worth on the average i
less than five cents per pound, and J
there was a condition of absolute un-1

"This state of affairs continued un

almost the entire Democratic party in
the south was in revolt against the
inly Democratic president that most
of the men then living had ever seen.

The Dlnglcy Bill.
For he Duroose of securlns: immedi-

caned a special session 01 congress,
on the 15th day of March, 1S97, and
the task of revising tariff, laws so as j
to make the revenue at least equal the
national expenditures was at once be
gun by Nelson Dingley in the house,
and Nelson W. Aldrich in the senate.
It has always been the policy of the
Republican party to raise revenue
enough for the general expenditures of
the government by tariff and internal
revenues without resorting to the is
suance of ponds at a liign rate of in
terest in time of peace. In other
words the Republican party has never

to meet current expenses. The Ding
ley bill passed promptly. All the Re
publicans voted fr it and they were
assisted by five soutnern Democrats.
The law was. of course, denounced in
the terms which Democrats always ap
ply to tariff measures s "the most in-
lquitous ever passed," and "the most (
outrageous ever forced upon a people.'" 1
But nn the day of its passage Mr. Ding-
ley issued a statement in which he !
said: 'This law will give increased
opportunity to American labor and af- '
ford the masses a purchasing power
which they have lost unoer the con-1
ditions of the past four years a pur- I

to buy more of the farmer, more of

the land. Confidence will return,
prices will begin to rise again to a
paying point, and prosperity will set
in upon this ccuntry. The operation i
of the laWwill increase our revenue j
to that point where every expenditure I
will be met and there will be a surplus '
left with which the government can
resume the payment of the principal
of the public debt?' There is not a .
living man today of respectable Intel-
ligence and a fair mind, who can deny!
that Mr. Dingley's prophecy was abso
Those False Prophecies.
"Not one word of the Democratic
prophecies which had been poured, into
our ears came true. In place of despair
and desolation stalking through me
country, plenty and prosperity returned
at once. To the dismay of the Demo
crats, the governmental machinery
began again to m-uve with regular
strokes. The price of cotton, the price
of coal, the price of beef, the price ot
wheat and th-j price of corn began to
go up and they have been up ever
since. If the agricultural and stock
raising interests of this country are
not satisfied with the prices which they
are now receiving for their products,
they must, inde- d. be hard to satisfy.
If they are dissatisfied with the
chanevs the government is today giv
ng them for making money, they will
prcbably, always be dissatisfied. But
if two y- ars from now the Democratic
party is returned to power in national
legislation, I predict that prices will
speedily fall to a level at which some
body will be profoundly dissatisfied.
"Everywhere we are hearing the cry
of down with the tariff. I believe that
our D-jmocratic brethren have really
reached the conclusion that they can
dispense with all duties on imported
products and run the government on
wind. Senator Bailey felt called upon
to warn them last year in substance
to the effect that the demands which
they are making now could not be com
plied with by them if they should
come into power, and that if they
should be entrusted again with the
control of the notional .government,
they would feel very much embar
rassed by the declarations which they
.are making today. Jhe truth is, gen
tlemen, our government is a great bus
iness concern. It can only be run in
one way, and that is a business way.
If you depart from this you bring
desolation and misery upon the people,
and although they may clamor for It
under the advice of misguided lead
ers, they will repent if their pwn pray
ers be granted '

is friendly to him only on election day
or when a strike is on. The founda
tion for this feeling was laid by
Thomas Jefferson himself over 100
years 'ago. The average man pictured
Jefferson as the friend of the working

Jefferson, the Aristocrat.
"He was a fair type of the old Vir

try estate devoting himself to intel
lectual pursuits and depending for a
livelihood on the labor of slaves. He
had an actual abhorrence: for the white
man who toiled in any manufacturing
Industry. He regarded him as a men
ace to the state and he declared with
the utmost vehemence that he pre
ferred to send our raw material to
England and have It manufactured
there and sent back to us and pay
the freight both ways, rather than to
be contaminated by the presence of the
working man Mn America, whom he
declared had bad manners and bad
principles. England thoroughly agreed
with him In this view and uhtil 1S43
she forbade by law the exportation of
manufacturing machinery from Eng
land to America.
A Foe to Industry
"The Democratic partyVfrom the
days of 'Jefferson to the present time
has rarely attempted to turn a wheel
of industry. It has never attempted to i
do anything to maintain good wages
tor the laboring ma::. It has at all
times declared a tariff for the protec-'

Foolish Bank Policy.
"It is illustrative of that econom
ical wisdom which Texafcs Democrats
displayed for more than 40 years in
forbidding the incorporation of a bank
by its own people and in its own ter
ritory. And -let no one suppose that
the Democrats opposed the organiza
tion of state banks because they fa
vored national banks. On the con
trary our constitution forbaUe the cre
ation of one, and every Democratic
platform for years demanded the abo
lition of the other. We were simply
opposed to having any hanks at all
and yet when Ave years ago we sud
denly discovered that they were a
necessity we amended the constitu
tion and we enacted a law with an
emergency clause and today more than
500 state banks are in operation in
grand old Texas.
Texas Makes Ijittle.
"I insist that state laws forbidding
all manner of combinations are Injur
ious to the people of Texas so long as
we buy our manufactured products
elsewhere. Practically everything of
i, enrt that Texas, buys she buys

pays freights on these things from one

in her midst. They consume but little
of the produce which she brings from
the farm and garden She remains an
agricultural state because no factory
of any importance dares attempt to
operate in her midst. I believe with
Mr. Roosevelt that there are good
trusts and bad -trusts. There are some
trusts that are Intended and do, by

through her midst, but blessed with
the fairest and most productive land
on which the sun shines, many of her
people have remained poor while those
who have pursued different business
methods on the bleak hills of New Eng
land have become rich. This cannot be
charged to the tariff. The burdens and
blessings of the tariff fall alike on the
people in Maine and the people in Tex
as. If the people of Texas have not
taken the same advantages of them
as have the people of Maine it is their
"Rather Groan Than Shout."
"There has never been a reason why
factories should not flourish better in
the south than In the north, except
the fact that our people had rather
groan than shout. We have better cli
matic conditions and we have the raw
material at our doors. But we have
never realized the cold blooded fact
that the country that produces and
sells raw material and buys its man
ufactured products elsewhere is rare
ly propsperous or happy.
"To the people of Texas I propound
these questions: 'Why do the people of
Republican states have more wealth
per capita than those of. Democratic
states? Why are the public school sys
tems better in Republican states than
in Democratic states? Why is the rate
of interest lower in Republican states
than In Democratic states? Why are
the wages of labor higher in Republi
can states than in Democratic states?
Hear Only One Side.
"There are thousands of grown men
in Texas who have never heard a Re
publican speech. There are thousands
more who have never read a Republi

tent to go through life hearing only
one side of public questions They
have assumed that the Republican
party was always against the south.
They have failed to realize that it has
always been the party of progress ana
