A Big Democratic Meeting Last
A Haaterly Bad Eloqnrat Address by
Praak P. If lair of Chicago Out
line or the Bpeerlt.
The democrats of Moline opened the
campaign in that city last night with a
rousing time. The Cable Flambeau
clab, led by a band and followed by a
long line of workingmen. marcbed
through the streets and later to the Wag
ner Opera house, where a large and en
thusiastic crowd had gathered, nearly
every seat in the house being filled. The
meeting was called to order by City Com
mitteeman Max Eohn, who introduced
Frank P. Blair, of Chicago, who was en
thusiastically received. The speaker be
gan his address by stating that his theme
for his address w juld be the tariff and he
would present a few facts and arguments
that to him seemed conclusive why every
man who workc-l for a living should be
in sympathy wi n the principles and doc
trines laid down by the democratic party.
To begin with, Mr. Blair said it would
be necessary to see what the two parties
had promised the people ia the plat
forms adopted at the last conventions, and
he accordingly read for the benefit of his
bearers tbe platforms upon which the two
parlies stand today. He then said tbat
for 30 years the republican party had
been in power and had gradually ic
creased the tariff taxation for many
years the excuse had been that it was
mcessary to do this in order to pay tbe
enormous war debt, but now it was
compelled to find some other excuse to
retain the intelligent voter within its
ranks. He then spoke of the demo
cratic party in its early days under the
leadership of Jefferson and Clay, when
a tariff on imports was advocated to
protect infant industries, which, by the
way, said the speaker, is no new thing.
Qe believed that a tariff to protect an
infant industry was well laid, but he
also contended that the gigantic trusts
and combinations which today sur
round us on all sides need no protec
t on. Ia all the history of protection,
tbe speaker said that at the Minneapolis
convention it was the first time the
principle bad ever been declared that
tariff taxation raised the wages of the
breadwinner, which be contended was
done to appeal directly to the work
logman and gain his vote it was a
bait and nothing more. As an Ameri
can he believed this to be the greatest
nation on earth, and that its workmen
were better treated, but he denied em
phatically tbat tbe republican party had
ever shown any love for the workingman.
With a tax on raw materia! and manu
faciured articles and no tax on imported
labor, tbe speaker asked some one to te?i
how wages could be in the face of hun
dreds of thousands of laborers arriving
from Europe each year. Mr. Blair then
spoke of the fact of American manufac
turers being able to sell their products in
Canada, South America, and even in Eng
land, cheaper than the English manufac
turer. As a few instances out of hun
dreds of similar ones he cited the Ameri
can Tool company that sells a brand of
axes here for $7 per dozen and lays the
same down in South America at 6 per
dozen, tbe Winchester Arms Company
that sells its goods 40 per cent cheaper in
Canada than it doesQat the door of the
factory, the Coats Thread Company,
whose products are disposed of at 3
cents a spool in Quebec and 5 cents in
Massachusetts. Not alone these, but
harvesters, fire arms, pianos, and a hun
dred other articles are sold at the same
ratio. He then quoted from a letter
written by Jerry Rusk, secretary of agri
culture, showing that mowing machinery
is sold in Russia and other wheat grow
ing countries at a lower figure than it is
in America, and adding significantly that
"the farmer will raise a howl about this
state of affairs and the mower and reaper
trust will cost the republican party 1C0,
000 votes at the coming election." He
also spoke of a plowm-tde at South Bend,
Ind.. which is placed upon the market
here at $ 12 50 and the same, firm, after
paying the freight, lay it down in Quebec
for $9, still underselling the English
manufacturer. Mr. Blair contended tbat
tariff robbery was no protection to
American labor and that American labor
was not better paid in consequence. To
illustrate this be said: "Suppose a man
and boy are working Bide by side making
shoes at Lynn, Mass. They receive 35
cents per pair. If the boy makes two
pairs and gets 70 cents a day and the man
makes four pairs and earns $1.40 in the
same time, do you mean tojtell me that the
man is being better paid? Certainly hot.
The American workman does more work
and does it better; that's the reason he is
better paid." 'If you will J think over
what I have just said," continued the
speaker, '-you are bound to reason it out
and reach the same conclusion that I
He next read statistics showing conclu
sively that human labor costs more in
free trade England than it does in Amer
ica, and that tbe committee appointed by
congress to investigate the cost of steel
rails fully corrorborated this statement. !
If America can pay its labor less and ge
its raw material free, it can take its place
where It belongs at the head in the com
mercial world, but that it will never do
under the existing tariff laws. The
speaker then spoke of the manner in
which protection breeds trusts, virtually
shutting out the laboring men by closing
down half the factories. If protection
protects, the speaker asked why there were
5,000 strikes and lockouts in the last 15
years, and why since the McKinley bill
went into effect have there been 250 strikes
and lockouts of general importance, some
of them the worst that ever occurred.
He mentioned the 43,000 men out of
work in and around Pittsburg, and said
that tbe republican partv was the party
of arrogance and aristocracy, while the
democratic parly is the party of the com
mon people. Wealth ia the joint pro
duct of capital and labor, and should
share alike He dwelt long ani earnestly
on the labor problem, and defined a cor
poration as a thing with no body to be
kicked and no soul to be damned, and in
closing said that protection was a fa'se
doctrine preached by a false prophet.
It was a masterly effort, his delivery
being easy and bis words fell with pe -culiar
force upon the large crowd of
workingmen who mainly composed his
William McEniry was afterward intro
duced, and for 20 minutes he elicited the
closest attention of the audience in a
well defined discussion of the tariff is
sue, wild enthusiasm being shown at the
mention of the name of Grover Cleve
land and John P. Altgeld, after which
the meeliog adjourned.
