devoted now toslucatlon and philan

commendable Interest In the poor and the
suffering. So Intensely enthusiastic so
cial worKers become, that they loso vholr
sepse of proportion and forget the Inter

yet who make up tho kreat majority of
tho common people
"To thcao enthusiasts, however, the ne
cessity for turning all tho activities of
the government Into plans for tho' anlell
prntlon of the particular dependents
whom they have under their observation
becomes exigent; and the look to the
government as an Instrument for Im
mediate relief. ' I am sorry to say that

the prospectuses of an ambltltt political
party. I cannot help asking by what
moans these reforms, are to be accom

ment of the la.ws and' by making the gov
ernment more economical and efficient.
"Is there any better way of helping the
people than to have tho tax money spent
economically to accomplish the purpose
directed by law? Is this not greatly

were stilt victorious in saving our coun
try from an administration whoee policy
Involved tho sapping of the foundation Of

Victory for J.nvr mid Order.
"The rrault of the Chicago convention
was a triumph for the permanence ot re
publican Institutions, the Importance of
which cannot be exaggerated. We meet
In no spirit of d cm pair, but rather to re
joice In a Victory for law and order. It
Is true that we were defeated at the polls
by our old tlmo opponent, the democratic
party. It Is truo that wo ara now koIiik
to work out again the problem of eating
our oalte and having It, too, by showing
how it Is possible to change from a sys
tem ot protection for manufactured In
dustries to one ot a tariff for revonuo
only, without affecting the Industries to
their detriment and without halting pro-
luctlou or lowering wages. It Is true that
we aro to witness ah attempt to satisfy
the crying need for a new banking and
currency system by a plan which ts to
embody as many as possible of the fea
tures of the Aldrtch monetary commission
plan disguised as much as may be so as to
permit denial of any semblance. It is
true that we aro t "witness a change of
office holders from republicans to demo
crats and we are to see how economical
the new administration Is to be as com
pared with the old. Wo have been through
this before. It may be that tHIs tlmo
they can do v. hat tluiy have not succeeded
( n uuiu inrrmvurr, unu. ir so. ana they
tan maintain the prosperity ot the coun
try at It's present' record level then -we
-shall rejoice at 'thelrl success.
"What Is there, in tho present condition
that the progressive party party repre
sents which can lead us to -suppose that
human naturo has so changed that no.
restraint Is uecossary In all society to
prevent one man from oppressing an
other or to prevent a majority of men
frojn oppressing ' An Individual or a
minority? What is It that constitutional
limitations aro for in a popular gov
ernment? A popular government is a
government by the people this la by
a majority of tho people, who, under
the law arc given the right to exercise
the electoral franchise, and constitutional
limitations aro Imposed to' prevent tho
misuse ot the' power of tho majority, so
that the Individual or the minority may
not suffer injustice through tho action
of the majority. Where Is the security
in present society that the majority may
hot from time to time do injustice to
the minority and' to the individual?"
Majority Hot Always Right.
"It is said that we distrust the people
If .wo assume that the majority will over
do Injustice In other words, the con
tention Is that tho voto of the majority
Is always right. Well, as the majority
In passing upon a given question de
termines sometimes one way, and some
times another, In which case .Is It right?
If tho wisdom of our forefathers and of
the long line of able men .who have
fought for popular government has lot
to the Introduction into overy scheme of
government of restraints to prevent In
Justico by the majority to tho minority
and tho Individual, what Is thero that
has happened In recent years to make tis
feel that a change has come over the
character of majorities so that they
may not exercise the tyranny that the
have exercised In the past,, and In respect
to which they have been restrained by
'There are the Inequalities In aoclety
to be wiped out. How la government to
assure' napplrtess to tho Individual? Is It
by an equal distribution of property? Is
it by taking from one man that which is
his and giving It to another who has not
enrped it? I submit that this is tho
ultimate result of a thorough analysis of
all the theories advanced by the pro
gressive party. It Is easily seen that
under the progressive program the whole
machinery that has been ' so carefully
built up by the older statesmen of this
country and or Kngland to save to tho
Individual and the minority, freedom,
equality bifore the law, the right of
property and the right to pursue happi
ness. Is to be taken apart and thrown
Into a Junk heap and the preservation of
such rights or privileges. If you choose
to call them such. Is to be left, to the
charitable Impulse of a benevolent ad
ministration. No one at all familiar with
tho principles of free government and the
tendency of erring and power loving
human nature would be content to have
his liberty or his right of property or his
right to pursue happiness dependant
upon the benevolence of any tone.

"Now H has been suggested that the
republican party can unite again with
many of the progressive party If only a
different rule can be put In force through
the convention or the national committee
by which the reduction ot southern rep
resentation -would be fecured and a fairer
'method of selecting the candidates for
president by the republican party could
be devised. I haven't any objection to
any method which shall bo fair. It Is
the principle that the party advocates

It Is not that the republican party ts

though neither is to be despised, but it Is
that in this crisis we feel that wo have

realize, and that in thot choso the com
