Grover Cleveland on Democ
racy and its Future.
Philadelphia, Dec. 19.
Former President Grover
Cleveland contributes to this
week's issue of the Saturday
Evening Post of Philadel
phia an extended article of
the plight of the Democracy
and the remedy.
Mr. Cleveland begins by
reviewing the history of the
party and he discusses its de
feats from 18(54 in detail. In
taking- up the question of
the present conditions of the
Democracy he says that the
success of the party in 1802
was so decisive and overwhel
ming that' a long continuance
of its supremacy was antici
pated. Then came "the fal
lacy of free silver and popu
Mr. Cleveland proceeds as
(Copyright, 1900, by the Curtis Tub. Co.)
"The culmination of Dem
ocratic woe was reached when
its compact with these un
Jjemocratic lorces was com
plete, each when our rani
and hie were summoned to
do battle under banners
which bore strange symbols
and were held aloft in unfa
miliar hands. The result of
such a betiuyal was foredoom
ed. This abandonment of
the principles of true Democ
racy, this contemptuous dis
obedience of its traditions.
and this deliberate violation
of the law of its tradition
and this deliberate violation
of the law of its strengtl
and vigor, were by a decree
as inexorable as those of fat(
followed by the inevitable
punishment of stunning, stag
"The disaster of 1872, invit
ed by similar mad adventure,
was quickly followed by a
return to the professions and
practices of sane Democracy.
But the extent and persisten
cy of our wanderings in 1890
is ullustrated in a most as
tounding way by the com
mand, issued on the day of
our rout and discomhtui e,
that a second battle should
be fought on the same field,
with the same false war cries
and the same leadership that
had brought us to the sudden
gloom of defeat.''
Again he says:
"Thus in 1900 the lesson
of 189G was contemptuously
rejected and every hope of
Democratic success was wil
fully cast aside. Again, our
long suffering rank and file,
whose loyalty and obedience
deserved better things, was
sacrificed in a cause theirs
only in name, and again it
was demonstrated but more
clearly than before, that the
only forces that can win Dem
ocratic successes are adher
ence to recognized Democrat
ic principles and reliance up
on Democratic councils and
"Why should we not re
turn to these and in their
name again achieve victories
no less jrlorious and
ed than were ours in the
days of the courageous advo
cacy of our time-honored
faith? Are our principles so
shop-worn and antiquated as
to require renovation or their
displacement by orders more
fashionable? There is not an
honest Democrat in this
broad land that will concede
these things, nor is there one
who would not hail the proc
lamation of the old faith with
that fighting enthusiasm that
foretokens Democratic tri
umph. As new conditions
arise, our principles must be
applied to them; but in the
creed that has guided us
through a century of party
existence we shall find the
key to every such application;
nor shall we need the lexi
con of populism to aid us in
interpreting this creed."
Mr. Cleveland touches in
turn on free silver and the
Federal Courts and believes
that Democrats are against
condemning "the general gov
ernment for protecting itself
in the exercise of its func
tions against violent obstruc
tion within a State."
Further on he declares:
"I believe no. Democrat
will have the hardihood to
deny that, we have fought
our iast two campaigns in al
liance with undemocratic for
ces and that alliance was im
mensely costly in defeat. It?
there not good reason to sup
pose that even in success
such an alliance would have
proved unprofitable and dan-
He pieaehed the return of
Democracy to its old faith,
"Sincere Democrats of ev
ery condition and in every
part of the land realize that
the situation of the party
needs repair. Keorganiza
tion is not necessary, out a
return or our wanuennsr is
absolutely essential. Let us
be frank with ourselves and
candidly acknowledge the
futilit3T of attempting to gain
Democratic victories except
in the Democratic cause and
through Democratic methods.
Reorganization is worse than
useless; and the
of superior pirty virtue will
breed only mischief. This is
a time for sober thought, tol
erant, language and fraternal
counsels. We are dealing
with the condition of a party
that cannot be destroyed by
external foes; and since its
ruin can be wrought only
from within, it should be im
perishable. Above all things,
there should be a manly re
nunciation and avoidance of
undue sectional control. De
mocracy will not operate ef
ficiently' on sectional lines.
"There is much for us to do,
and the future is full of Dem
ocratic duty and opportunity.
Our fighting forces will re
spond listlessly and faltcring-
Iv it summoned to a third de-
feat in a stranjre cause; but
if they hear the rallying call
of true Democracy they will
imtlior for hiit.tlf with old-
time Democratic enthusiasm
and courage. .
"If I should attempt to
epitomize what I have writ
ten by suggesting a plan for
the rehabilitation and restor
ation of true Democracy I
should embody it in these
words: 'Give the rank and
file a chance.' "
The following letter is in answer

The IicLLTTiN has been shown
the advance eheets of the Sixth li -
ennial Report of the Trustees and
Superintendent of tbe Western Hos
pital for the Insane, from Decem
ber, 1S98, to December, 1900 from
which we make the following ex
tracts: TRUSTEES' REl'ORT.
The Trustees report the general
condition of the institution good;
the management by the Superinten
dent ant! his assistants economical;
the care and treatment of insane
just and humane; the appropriation
of monies received expended to the
best interests of the comfort and
sustenance of patients, and necessa
ry care of buildings and grounds;
the buildings neat and comfortable;
the patients well treated and cared
for; food well prepared and served.
The Superintendent, Assistant
Physicians, Steward and all atten
dants and assistants are commended
for the care given to their different
duties, the interest manifested by
them in the successful management
of the institution and the courteous
treatment of the iumates.
The Trustees recommend the fol
lowing appropriations, in addition
to the sustenance fund: An appro
priation sufficient to build an asso
ciate dining room, or cottages, as
tbe legislature may decide; an in
crease in the number of state pa
tients to 075; a sufficient appropria
tion to replace the electric light
plant damaged by fire in 1897; an
appropriation sufficient to insure the
buildings, furniture, etc., for three
years; the building of a spur track
from Bolivar to the Hospital. The
Trustees recommend that the suste
nance fund, 1-10.00 per capita, re
At the beginning ot the term,
uec. 19, lb'JS, mere were olo pa
tients in the institution; during the
past two years 443 patients have
been received; number treated du
ring term 958; number discharged
'201 111 recovered, 100 improved;
number of deaths 103; present nura
ber of patients in Hospital 594 at
charge of state 515, counties 50,
In pleasant weather the entire
household is required to take exer
cise; patients who can be trusted
are given liberty and allowed the
privileges of the grounds; patients
physically able are required to work
on farm, in garden and laundry and
the result has proven beneficial as
well as valuable to the Hospital.
Weekly balls are given, an occa
sional opera troupe employed,
Thanksgiviug is observed, a Christ
mas tree, (upon which is placed a
present for each patient) a turkey
dinner is served Christmas day, a
barbecue on July 4th all of which
are looked forward to with great
pleasure by four-fifths of the house
hold. There has only been one change
made in our Hoard of Trustees since
our last report, Mr. D. E. Durrett,
of Bolivar retiring. Mr. Durrett
for a number of years was chairman
of our Hoard. He was always
prompt at its meetings, in sympa
thy with its welfare, vigilant and
painstaking in all of his executive
work connected with the institu
tion. Mr. Durrett leaves with the
good will of all connected with the
Col. J. A. Manson, of Saulsbury,
this County, was appointed at the
last Legislature a Trustee for this
Hospital. At the first meeting of
the Hoard, he was elected as our
president. He is a man of high in
tegrity and is peculiarly filled to
the position, being an expert ac
countant. He has taken a close
personal interest in all of the details
of the administration and has al
ways given the Superintendent his
support and counsel in the many
perplexing questions that have
Keligjous services are held every
Sunday afternoon by the clergy of
Holivar and Whileville. At these
services, choir exercises have been
above the average. To Mrs. Luther,
who has faithfully sat at the organ
and led the choir since the organiza
tion of the Hospital, we owe much
of our success in this line.
The Hospital is very much crowd
ed and we are forced to refuse to
admit recent cases for want of room.
Some means should be devised by
which this unfortunate class should
be properly cared for. Several
plans are suggested for this pur-
Dose, among the number
the erection of a congregate dining
on.i ti.n nfiiwotmn f tl.o nr.
ent twelve dining rooms for sleep-
ing purposes. Second the e.rec-
tion of two cottages, one on the
; east, the other on the went Pine of
the main building, with capacity to
1 accommodate 100 patients
We have many chronic insane, men
and women, who are harmless, that
could be removed to the cottages.
The life would be more home-like,
fewer iurses would be needed,
hence the expense lens.
We are situated two and a half
miles from the Illinois Central II.
u i .r.- i i i
aim iue uraysge on uoai aione
amounts to nearly 0; COO. 00 per
term, to say nothing of other sup
plies, heavy groceries, etc. Now,
if the State could see it in the same
light that I do, it would build a
spur track from the I. C. depot to
the Hospital, the cot of which,
equipped with a dummy necessary
for use would not exceed $25,000.
Hie cost of construction might be
greatly reduced by the use of Slate
convicts and the utilization of some
of our labor. It would be a saving
to the Stale of something like seven
thousand dollars per term and would
easily pay for -h-elf in a few years.
J herewith submit a report of the
receipts and disbursements of all
accounts of the Hospital, with
vouchers for each amount, from
Dec. 19, 189S, to Dec. 19, 1900:
Cash forwarded from last term,
$2,409 75; received from W. M.
Wright, Treasurer, $32,333.82; re
ceived from Comptroller, fill, 093,
12; received from county patients,
9,328.30; received from private
patients, $7,S9S. 17; received from
sundry articles sold, $400.49 total
receipts, $104,123.05. Disburse,
meuts, $i 02,090.85; amount disal
lowed by Comptroller, $257.10
total 102,433.75, leaving a balance
of $1,G89.90. The amounts disal
lowed by the Comptroller are:
Voucher No. 740, Austin Miller'a
expenses to Nashville, $41.12;
vouchers Nos. 1G35, 1S98, 1899,
expenses in suit of Coates vs. Hills,
$215.93. Amount due from the
Comptroller for the month ending
Dec. 19, 1900, $0,030.71. Total
balance, $S,720 01. - Hills payable,
I desire to express' my apprecia
tion to the medical staff, to the
Steward, and to the headj of de
partments, as well as to the attend
ants and employees for their sup
port, cooperation and faithful per
formance of their respective duties
Without their aid it would be im
possible to successfully manage an
institution of this magnitude.
On the 4th of December, 1900,
Comptroller Theo. F. King and
Revenue Agent C. D. M. Greer
visited the Western Hospital iu
their official capacities. Following
is a copy of an extract from their
report, written upon the books of
the institution and filed with the
Governor of Tennessee:
"We have this day completed an
examination of ihe receipts and dis
bursements of the Western Hospital
for Insane from Dec. 19, 189S, to
Nov. 30, 1900, inclusive, having
examined all of the vouchers ainl
found same properly receipted, and
found all money that came into the
hands of the Treasurer and other
officials properly accounted for."
Their report to Gov. McMillin is
of some length, and gives an insight
to the operations of the institution.
In the document the Comptroller
and Revenue Agent pay a high
compliment to the officials in charge
of the institution, stating that it is
conducted, in ther opinion, in the
best possible manner.
