SENATOR J. G. EVANS' SPEECH.
Following is the speech deliver
ed by Senator John Gatry Evais
beforo the Democratic nominating
convontion held in Columbia
Wednesday, 19th inst:
Gontlemen of the Convention
and Fellow Democrats:
Few men, gentlemen, in the his
tory of our Stato have boon honor
ed as I have to-night by you. Re
cognizing the fact. of my youth,
I have felt that I can indood thank
fr" the botton of my hart for
this honor. I would he false to
myself if I told you I thought this
the happiest hour of my life. I
feel that the responsibility resting
upon my shoulders is indeed great.
But I feel that with the united
Democracy and with the people of
South Carolina, whom you repro-,
sent, supporting me in my effort
for honest government, that my
efforts will not prove futile and
that the will of the majority of the
people of South Carolina will be
carried out at all events. [Ap
Our government is a govern
ment of the majority, and should
I be elected to the Chjiet Executive
position of your State, I feel that I
would be false to you should I not
carry out the will of the majority
when it is fairly expressed at all
We are, gentfemen, Democrats
we soe here men who fought for thi
principles of Democracy, we so
and hear men who sat upon lap
of their mothers and heard of th
brave deeds of their fathers wh
fought for State's rights, men wh
sat there, children then, men now
Democrats now-men who imbi
bed Democracy wit their mother'i
milk. Toll me that those meni
toll me that those gray..haired sirei
could be false to South Carolina!
Gentlemen, it comes with ba<
grace, from any South Carolinian
seeing your complexion, seeing ani
hearing your principles, seeing and
hearing the voice of South Carolinc
expressed at the ballot box, to say
that this grand old State is nol
safe in your hands. [Applause.]
There are some citizens in South
Carolina who are fond of attach
ing a tail to their Democracy.
We are Democrats. We are not
Cleveland Democrats. We are not
any other kind of a qualidied Dem.
ocrat. We owe allegiance to no
man. We owe allegiance to the
prmnciples which wore fought for
you and your fathers and my fa
ther, and those principles must be
miaintained at all hazards. [Ap.
Why, we have reached a state
n the history of our country which
sS prophesied by your own states.
nan, Calhoun. We have reached
Sstate now where parties are noi
'oenned by principles but are drawi
*y geographical lines. We fin!
ue Democracy in the South an<
ii the West, the home of principhi
rights, and who aro against con
tralized government. We find on
the contrary the opponents of Jef
forsonian Democracy, by that prin
ciple which means equal rights to
all and special privileges to none,
we find those men, living in the
North and the East. We find an
effort to centralize the government
confined to a section which has
grown rich upon the success of
principles which have robbed the
farmers of the South and West.
What is our Democracy? In
1896, I make the prophesy here,
that the South and the West will
be called upon to redeem the Dem
ocratic party from the plunderer a
and the monopolist and the mil
lionaire who aro growing fearful,
if they do not have centralization C
of the government that those mil- i
lions will become the halter which t
will surround their necks. F
A great deal has ben said in
your convention about Domocracy.
A great deal has boon said by peo
ple outside who attach tails to
their Democracy. In natural his
tory we road that the apo its hei
grows old becomes suspicious of I
his tail. It worries him mentally a
alld physically until ho dies, be
lieving that tho appendage is the I
cause of his death. Such will be t
the fato of such Demoncrats iin I
South Carolina. [Applause. I
Thore assombled in Ocala u (nder t
the Southern sun, under the shados 11
of the paliIotto anld al miiost down
on the Swanoo Rivor a body of the c
honest yoomanry of the country. f
Those mon did not go there as t
pol iticians, not as reprosenting the I
agricultural interests of this na- t
tion. They set forth thoro cortain f
principlos which are commonly 1
known as the Ocala platform. c
Those principles woro set forth as i
principles that wore necessary to
rescue their government and to I
save your interests which is the I
bUis of all wealth, agriculture, I
from the clutches of the Northern
Wo who are dependent on agri
culture for our existence sympa
thized with them. We said in our
convention, "This is true Demo
cracy, and we endorse it here," and
I endorse it now. [Applause.)
But they say it is not Democra
cy. Bear with me a minute, and
let me show the ignorance of cer
tain people who criticise and con
denmn you. Let me show you that
those people cannot recognize
Democracy when they see it in
printer's ink. Let me refer to this
Trhe Democratic party in con
vention assembled at Chicago en
dlorse5d a part from principles.
They are true and represent lhon
ost government and are dear to
the hearts of every one of you.
they have beeni endorsed by your
convention properly as true De
mocracy, and these principles con
nected with them have been on.
dorsed, and I will show you that
the National Democratic party in
conivention assomblled in Chicago
incorporated every one of those
princip~les save one, andl that the
Denmocratic majority in Congress
have enactedl into law every prin
Sciple of that platform not so
Is not that the highest evidene
of its Demnocracy'?
"'We demand the abolition of
national banks.'" That is D~e
muocracy as formulated in section
8 of the Chicago platform. When
Sthey asked fo.r the abolition of the
tax on State baniks what did that
"We demand that the amount
Iof the circulation medium be spe
cially increased to not loss than
$50 per capita." The National
Democratic platfornm dleplore the
state of affairs of the farmers of
the country calling attention) to
the tremendous mortgage indebt
edness upon the farmers and call
en on congress to afford relief. So
the plank is included in the na
"We demand that congress shall
pass such laws as will effectually
prevent the dealing in futures of
all agricultural and mechanical
productions, providing a stringent
system of procedure in trials that
will secure the prompt conviction,
and imposing such penalties as
shall secure the most perfect com-.
pliance with the law." That has
passed the House of congress,
where the Demoerats had over 80
majlbority, but was defeated by the
Sentebt. So is not thatadopted by
I"We conxdelnn the silvet bill re
, cently passed by cngress, and do
unlimited coinage of silver."
That demand is absolutely in sec
tion 7 of the Democratic platform.
If English means that free and
ilimited coinage was demanded
by the Democratic party, but un
ler the prostitution of the Presi
Jont of the United States a differ
mt construction was placed upon
that demand and we were cheated
)d defrauded of its benefits.
"We demand the passage of laws
)rohibiting alion ownership of
and, and that Congress take
>rompt action to deviso some plan
o obtain all lands now owned by
lions and foreign syndicates; and
hat all lands now held by rail
oads and other corporations in ex
ess of such is actually used and
,id needed by then be reclaimed
>y the government, and held for
ctual settlers only." That is
ection 6 of the democratic plat
orm adopted at Chicago, and al
nost ideatical in language.
"Believing in the doctrine of
,qial rights to all and 'special
)rivlegen to none." These are
refforsonian principles which are
et forth in the chicago platform.
"We demand that our national
Ogislation shall be so framed in
ho future as not to build up one
adustry at the expense another.''
This is alost identically soc
ion 5 of the Democratic platform
dopted at. chicago.
"We further demand a removal
f the existing heavy tariff tax
rom the necessities of life that
he poor of our land must have."
'hat is the Democratic plank of
he chicago platform demanding
reo raw materials, But what
iave we to-day? We have a Dem
icratic House, a Democratic Sen
6to and a Democratic President,
Lnd we had the right to expect a
,ariff for revenue only, and yet we
lave bill comparatively little bet
e than the McKinley bill. Why?
Because the South and the West
riow raise raw materials cheaper
Lhan the Northeast, and they leave
a high protective tariff on manu
factured products and demand free
raw materials because the farmers
consume manufactured articles
and sell the raw materials. We
asked for bread and they gave us
"We further demand a just anm
equitable system of graduated tay
on income." That is not incorpo
rated in the Democratic platform
but it has been passed as a law by
the democratic party in congress
and that is the stumblingblocl
which will make Republicans o
every Democrat in the Northeast
Already, however, the Republicam
Legislaturo in one Northern Stati
has ratified the course of the Demi
ocratic Senators of that State is
their opp~osition to this measures
which is not in this platform, an<
which has been onautedl by ti
United States congress. And ye
these men, who say that we ari
not Democrats, support a man wh<
voteod against that provision a mai
who leagued with the Republicams
to defeat that p~rovision, andl to de
feat sliver legislation. That is
pulre) Democracy inll~uded in th<
"We demand the most rigid
honest and just Stato aind nation
alI government control aind super
vision of the meanms of public conm
mnunication andl transp)ortation
and, if~ this control anmd supervi
iOn) doo not remnove the abIuss
nlow existing, we dlomand the gov
ernment ownership of such moani
of commnuniention and transpor
tation." They have never do
manded theogovernment ownersh ij
of railroads. Trhoy simply do
manded the control of the railroad1
and when we come to the poin
when it wvill be necessary to koe1
them from owning the people thor
we will domand government own
ership, and not till then. Is no
that pure Democracy and for thi
pgotection of the p~eople? Tha
has been enacted by Congress.
Wh~en you p~assod the railroat
commission law, you gave youn
commission absolute control oi
the irailroads, with power to fia
rates, but you have nmevor demand
od ownership of the roads and you
.don't desire it,
"We demand that the Congress
of the United States subfuit an
amendment to the constitution
providing for the election of Uni..
ted States Senators by direct vote
of the people of each State." The
JDemiocrgtic congress has thatoenact
ed into law and a Demoeratic sen
ate doeeted it,
So you see every plank of that
platform save one, which is the
*ub.treasury, is included in the
Demoaratic platform and has ben
enacted into law by a Democratic
Scongrese-. The sub-troeasury is sim
ply a plan pt'forthas an ovidOnce
of a disease -existing among the
farmers whd demanded of those
doctors of the nation to do somo
thing to cure that disease.
Have not the people tho right to
petition Congross? I maintain be
fore the people and claim that they
have such nt right. I am a true
Domocrat and I stand on the Na
tional Domnoqratic platform and I
stawnd on the Ocala platforni. I
will not fool mily people, let it cost
me what-it may. [Loud applauso.]
Now, gentlemen of the convon
tion, I say this bocauso it has boon
flung at your faces as a tart. W)o
in South Carolina are a noblo peo
ple. Wo should not cherish ani
mosity, and (10 not. Wo iuvite
every true and honest citizon to I
come with us in this bill of rights
t o preserve white Supromacy.
White supremacy is worth more
than party principle [loud ap
plause] and the men who opposos1
those domands, who opposes the
freo and unlimited coinage of sil
vor, cannot stand before his peo
ple and claim to be a Democrat.
We are a united peoplo. We
stand'here united and if I thought,
gentlemon,, that my nomination
aind my election meant unhappi
ness to the people of South Caroli
na and threatened the institutions
of my State, which I love, for
every true patriot loves his State,
I would ask you. to take back this
nomination, and I would pray God
to put out the spark which burns
in my heart. [Applause.]
If electod I shall be Governor of
the entire people. I Ehall know
no faction. 41nd. shall see that
the will of the majority and the
interest of the minority are pro.
tected by all th law and power
which is placed. in my hands as
your chief Executivo. [Applause.]
And now I shall leave you. I
congratulate.yo,u on the work that
you have doile tp-day. I congrat
ulato youupQn tlie bold manner in
which you remained steadfast to
principle and the pledgos you made
to the people.
I promiso you that the Disponsa
ry law, which seems to bo the hono
of contention among some poople,
but which I believe to be the only
solution of the -whiskey problom,
and the only rescue of the peoplo
from tyranny of the whiskoy ring,
I shall onforceo to the very lotter.
[ A pplauso. j

port, gentlemonii. I thank you as
a Democratic pirty anid as the
representatives of the people, and
when I pledgo you my heart, when
I plodlge you my hand, and when I
pledge you my head, I have done
all that mortal can (do. You do
the rest and support me, andl I as
sure you that the proud banner of

saw through the schemes of the

views about what the convention
would do to-day, he said they were
