Mr. Hunt's Address.
Mr. Hurst's speech in opening the
Fellow democrats: I was pleased
to accept the invitation of your com
mittee to preside on this occasion, and
to have the opportunity of address
ing the Chicago democracy in
advocacy of those cardinal
principles of democratic faith
which we profess, and upon the
ildt ption of which we believe the
welfare of our country depends. While
these are cardinal and fundamental
principles, it seems to me that we can
not too often recur to the plain state
ment of those principles as enter
tained by .Tefferson. the great foun
der of our party. .Jefferson believed
in equal and exact justice to all men.
and special privileges to none; in
peace, commerce and friendship with
all nations, and entangling alliances
with none; in economy in public ex
penditure; in freedom of speech;
freedom of the press; freedom of
conscience, and the faithful observ
ances of constitutional limitations.
In analyzing these principles of the
democratic party advocated by .lef
ferson, we find one great principle
predominates that whatever govern
ment and laws can do for a people
must be done for all the people with
out granting special privileges or pre
cedence ti any class, or section or
grade of citizenship.
We, as democrats, believe that a
government administered in this spir
it in such a country as ours, will se
cure a larger measure of freedom and
prosperity to the people than has
heretofore been jmssible in the world,
and that it will be an example and the
inspiration of all mankind. To make
ami keep ours such a government; to
guard with jealous care the right of
equal citizenship; to oppose with
earnest zeal the granting of special
privileges to any class, this is the high
and glorious duty of the democratic
party, a duty that binds our party to
never ending warfare with the strong
est and most enduring forces of hu
man nature, the lust of power and
the lust of greed.
l'owsr for Favored Classes.
Of the policies of the republican
party, it could never be more truly
said than now. that they all tend to
ward the centralization of political
power in the federal government
and the centralization of wealth in
favored classes. Against such ten
dencies our party rights as against
the enemies of freedom. We lu-lieve
that the- opportunities of material
prosperity which our country offers
should be equally open to all. without
any special favor conferred by the
government upon any. The wealth
that all may make is not a menace,
but a strong buttress to a free govern
ment. All men will protect what all
may hope to acquire, as the open
prizes of industry, thought and intel
ligence. Hut the wealth that comes
from control and preversion of the
power of taxation that is gathered by
unjust laws from the labor of the
people, is the source of unrightful
Ours is not a destructive party. We
are not at enmity with the rights of
anv of our citizens. The democratic
party wages no war on property or
property rights. The true democrat
glories in the pportunity for in
dividual' advancement under a govern
ment such as ours, when rightfully
administered, and has only admira
tion for the man w ho, asking nothing
from his government but equal and
exact justice carves out his own suc
cess, but the true democrat demands
that the blessing of government shall
flow like rain from heaven on the rich
and poor alike, and that his govern
ment shall not grant special privileges
to the few.
The burning question of the hour,
is whether there hsJl be continued to
number of vast monojolies, the
special privileges which the republi
can tariff confers upon them. We have
come to a point in the history of our
country where it is necessary to de
cide once and for all whether we are
to keep up a government for the peo
pie, or turn it over to the domination
of wealth. We have had six years of
the steady growth of the power of
monev under a tariff that stimulates
monopolies, and under a political
party that gets it main support from
plutocrats and trust manipulators
During- that period there has neen
formed vast combinations of capital.
ajreretrating nearlv six thousand mil
lions of dollars, all of which are re
ceiving direct and special benefits
from republican legislation. Such a
power of combined wealth as this, my
friends, is indeed a formidable foe.
but if the opponents of plutocracy
and the believers in the cardinal pnn
eiples of the democratic party will put
aside all distentions in their own
rank, and present' a united and de
termined front to the enemy in the
coming political battle. I, for one
have complete faith that, the people
will wrest their government from the
control of these combinations of
wealth, and put it back in the hands
of those who will administer it in the
interests of the people, and, not in the
interests of favored classes.
The republican platform of 1900
denounced "all conspiracies and com
binations intended to restrict busi
ness, t create monopolies, to limit
production, or control prices, and fa
vored such legislation as would ef
fectively restrain and prevent all such
Is an Admission.
The. insertion of this plank in the
republican platform admitted the ex
istence of such conspiracies and com
binations. Hut what has the repub
lican party done to curb or control
them? You all know that it has done
absolutely nothing. You know more
than that: that the republican party
is controlled by these conspiracies
and combinations, antl that there is
absolutely no hope for" relief from
such monopolies which limit produc
tion and control prices, until the re
publican party is driven from power.
the people being lulled into a spirit
of listlessness by a degree of pros
perity in the country, and- possibly in
fluenced by the false argument of the
republican leaders that such pros
perity as. the people of this country
have enjoyed, was due to the tariff
legislation of the republican party,
these combinations and conspiracies
which have controlled that partv,
have been able to exact vast tribute
from the people in the wav of increas
ed prices for the necessities of life.
It seems to me, however, that t lie
time has come when the people of the
country are opening their eves to the
fact that the mass of the people
have not been receiving their share
of the prosperity which this country
n common with other countries of
the western world has been eniovinsr.
but that the lions' share of this pros
perity has come to those who control
these vast accumulations of capital.
Aside from the injustice of tariff
taxation, which has enabled a few
men to acquire great wealth at the ex
lense of the masses is the danger to
such a government as ours which
comes from the power of wealth to
yontrol and influence legislation, a
jHtwer so vast ami so influential that
f not cheeked it will soon make ours
a government of plutocracy, and not
government i f the people. How
ever men mnv differ as to the neces
sity or advisability or a general re-1
visum of our tariff laws, it seems to
me that among thinking and honest
men, there can be no question as to
the duty of the government to repeal
or at least reduce to a revenue basis
the tariff on all good, the produc
tion of which is practically monopo
lized in this country. In a campaign,
with such an issue we would undoubt
edly have the aid of tuanv who have
heretofore been anient believers in
the policy of protection to American
industries, for today the exactions of
the steel trusts and other like mono
polies protected by the tariff, are
bearing heavily upon manufacturers,
who are compelled to buy of these
trusts at such prices and upon such
terms as thev see lit to exact.
Should Be Crefally Done.
Any reduction of tariff taxation
should, of course, be so measured as
not to necessitate or justify either
the loss of employment by the work
ing1 man. or the lessening of his wa
ges, ami mat tins eouui sureiy ne
done is evidenced by the enormous
profits which some of those protected
interests have accumulated, showing
plainly that they could have had ade
quate returns upon their capital and
paid their laborers full and just wa
ges under a system of tariff taxation
which was less burdensome upon the
There are other issues which may
well demand the attention of our
party, but I have already, perhaps,
consumed too much of your time, in
view of the fact that there are others
to address you, who will more fully
discuss the issues requiring the care
ful attention of the people.
I cannot refrain, however, from
appealing to all democrats who le
lieve in the broad, cardinal principles
of democratic faith, to put aside all
feelings of animosity, which may have
been engendered by reason of differ
ences of opinion over issues presented
in the democratic platforms in the
past. Let us be animated by the
spirit which the father of our coun
try said should animate the people in
considering the federal constitution,
a spirit of amity and mutual conces
This, my friends, was the spirit
which always animated Thomas Jef
ferson, the great founder of our
party, in the consideration of ques
tions of public policy. Mr. Morse, in
his life of Jefferson, in analyzing and
discussing his character says: "Jef
ferson set forth a broad faith or re
ligion in statesmanship, making speci
al measures only single blocks in the
wide pavement of his road." He be
lieved in compromise and concession
as being necessary to the wise govern
ment of the people. He retired from
office with a reputation and a popu
larity hardly inferior to that of Wash
ington. Xo personal influence of a
civilian has ever been so great and so
permanent over our people, an in
fluence which has continued to the
present time, and which must con
thine if our country is to exist, and
to be controlled by the great princi
pies upon which it was founded.
Should Keep Up Strife.
While we who profess faith in the
principles of democracy -as expound
ed bv Jefferson, have been divided by
dissensions in our party, we have seen
the republican party controlled by
principles which Jefferson loathed,
obtain a firmer hold upon the coun
try than ever before in its history,
ami our government embarking uion
a policy of foreign colonization and
the subjugation of a foreign -people
and pursuing policies utterly oppose:
to the fundamental principles of our
republican form of government.
It is time, my friends, that those
who believe in the principles of Jef
ferson should put aside all dif
ferences, uniting together in the
advocacy of that one great, broad
principle equal and exact justice to
all men, and special privileges to
As has been well said, perfection in
a party- platform is an idle dream,
and infirmities in creed and defects
in leadership will always characterize
every party. The true question be
fore every citizen always is the gen
eral attitude of a party on the vital
issues of t he day, and whether in view
of that attitude, its success is not
the thing most to be desired.
Our government was not conceived
or formed as a money-making ma
chine, even for the benefit of all gov
erned, much less for the benefit of
particular classes ur portions of the
governed. Its vital principles and its
crowning merit are that it stands
for equal opportunities for all; that
by the maintenance of order and the
administration of justice it is design
ed to give every man a free hand in
the. struggle for the prizes of life.
This theory of the true functions of
government is tin corner stone of
democratic faith, ami is directly op
posed by the republican creed. Hy
protective tariffs, by the most inti
mate relations between the I'nited
States treasury and the general mon
ey market, by subsidies to particular
industries, by an aggressive coloni
al policy, and in other ways the re
publican party practically holds out
the government as an engine frr use
in the acquisition of private wealth.
Should Not Falter.
These lein the distinctive theories
of governmententcrtained by the two
great political parties in this country,
no professed follower of the demo
cratic faith, as taught by Jefferson,
should falter in his duty, but should
put aside minor difft rciiccs over speci
al measures and unite with all who
believe in the cardinal principles of
the democratic party.
Let our party be inspired by the di
vine principles of democracy, as
taught by Jefferson, and our leader
