And Up-to-Date Declarations of
Ex-Governor Black of New York and
Beveridge of Indiana Presented
As long as these things aro recalled'
that party may serve as batfast, but It
will never 'steer tho ship.
When all tho peoplo have forgotten
will dawn a golden era for this new
Democracy. But tho country is not
ready yet to placo a party In tho lead
whoso most exprosslvo motto Is tho
cheerless word "forgot." That motto
may express contrition, but?!, It does
not Inspire hope. Neither confidence j
nor enthusiasm will over bov aroused
spirit which has been tho leading Im
pulse in American politics for liald
a century, In that movement, which
was both a creation and an example
were those great characters which
endowed tho Republican party at Its
birth with1 the attributes of Justice,
equality and progress, which have
hold It to this hour In line with tho
highest' sentiments of mankind.

In nomlnatlong President Roosevelt
Mr. Black said:
Mr. President and gentlemen of the
conventien: Wo aro horo to Inaugur
ate a campaign which seems already
to bo nearly closed. So wisely have
tho peoplo sowed and watched and
tended, thero seems llttlo now to do
tout to measure up tho grain. They

but for harvest. In one column reach

Pugot Sound aro those peoplo and
and those states which have stood
bo long together, that wlion gieat
emergencies arise tho nation turns In-
pons choson by tho other are not only
but fatal to tho holder. That Is true.
This Is tho only war of modern tlme3
whore tho boomerang has been sub
stituted for tho gun. Whatover fatal
ities may occur, however, among tho
discordant hosts now 'moving on St,
Louis, no harm will como this fall
to tho American people. Thero will
bo no opposition sufilclcnt to raise a
conflict. Thoro will be hardlv enough
for competition. Thero aro no Demo- j
cratlc plans for tho conduct or tno
fall campaign. Tholr zeal Is chiefly
centered In discussion as to what

It Is a sad day for any party when
IU only means of oolvlng living Issues
Is by guessing at tho possible atti
tude of a statesman who Is dead.
ThlH condition leaves that party al
ways a beglnnor and makes ovory"
question new. Tho Democratic party
has seldom tried a problem on Its own
account, and when It has Its blundors

courage Is romombored' only In regrot.

Thoro is one fundamental plank,
howover, on which tho two great
parties aro In full agreement. Both
believe In tho equality of men. Tho
difference is that tho Democratic
party would make every man as low
as tho poorest, while the eRpubllcan
party would make ovory man as high
as tho beat. But tho Democratic
courso will provoke no outside Inter

to Is that of tho great commander,
l"nover Interrupt the enemy while ho
Is making a mistake."
In politics as in othor fields, tho
most Impressive arguments spring
from contrast. Never has thero been
a more striking examplo of unity than
Is now afforded- by this assemblage.
You aro gcthored hero not as a fac

Never In our lives did theso purposes

There are many now names In
tho3e days, but tho Republican party
needs no new title. It stands now
whore Is stood at the beginning. Mem
ory alono is needed to toll the source
from which tho Inspirations of tho
country flow A drowsy memory
would bo as guilty now as a sleeping
watchman when tho enemy Is astir.
Tho name of tho Republican party
stands over tho door where a right
eous cause wa3 born. Its members
have gathered around every move
ment, no matter how weak, If In
spired by high resolvo. Its flag for
more than fifty years has been tho
sign of hopo on every spot whore
liberty was tho word. That party
npeds no new name or platform to
designate its purpose It is now as it
has been, equipped, 'militant and In
motion. Tho problems of every ago
that ago must solve. Great causes
Impose great demands, but novor In
any enterprise have tho American peo
plo failed, and .never In any crista
has the Republican party failed to
oxpross tho conscience and Intelli
gence of that people.
The public mind Is awake both to
Its opportunities and Its dangors. No
whore In tho world, In any era, did
citizenship mean more than it means
luoay in America, men or courage
and sturdy character aro ranging
themselves together with a unanimity
seldom seen, There is no oxcuso for
groping in tho dark, for the light Is
plnln to him who will raise his oyes.
The American peoplo bellovo In a
man or party that has convictions
and knows why. They bellovo that
what oxporlonce has proved It Is Idle
to roslst. A wise man Is any fool
about to die. But thoro Is a wisdom
which with good fortune may guide
tho living and the strong. That wis
dom springs from reason, observation
and experience. Guided by those this
thing Is plain, nnd young men may
rely upon it. that tho history aud pur
poses I have described, rising oven
to the essonce and aspirations of
patriotism, find their best concroto
oxamplo in tho career and doctrlnos
of tho Republican party,
But not alono upon the principles
of that party aro its members In ac
cord. With tho samo devotion which
has marked their adhoronco to those
principles, magnificent and enduring
as thoy aro, thoy havo already sing
lod out the man to bear tho standard
nnd to lead tho way. No higher badge
was ovor yet conferred. But great

which surround It make that honor
oven more profound. You have come
