Fellow citizens, gratifying as it is to have SUOh
men for our candidates, we must vet remember
that, after all, men are but the representatives of
Ideas. And that McKinley and Roosevelt, worthy
in themselves for the high offices to which they
have been named by the Republican Convention,
are yet slill more worthy because of that which
they represent for America and American Interests.
This matter of electing a President and Vice-
President Is in no senee a personal matter, turning
on the character or quality of the man. Men stand
for something In American politics, and I want to
see McKinley and Roosevelt prevail in November
next, and so do you, not alone because they are
worthy In themselves to have your support, but
because «hey stand, as Mr. Low has said, for the
continued prosperity of this country, for the great
spirit of Americanism which la abroad in this
Tl 1 re are a Rood many questions being talked
about that have been referred to by Mr. Low. such
a.« Ihfl trust question; and we see It repeated almost
every day In the newspapers that Mr. Bryan Insists
still that IS to 1 and the question of imperialism,
as our Democratic friends term It, and other ques
tions are dominant: but the one great paramount
question, the question shove all others ln import
ance, is the question whether or not the Adminis
tration of Wllllan* McKinley shall be continued
by us.
It should be indorsed. In the first place because
he has kept the faith. Some men when they Rot
Into public office do not keep promises mndo while
they are candidates. They do not keep them
tome tiles because they cannot, and they do not
keep them other times because they do not want to.
In the case of William McKinley, however, no mat
ter what has been the difficulty, every promise
made in IS9« has been redeemed.
Mr. Low talked to you in his closing sentence
about prosperity and about how some people were
undertaking to make It appear that the prosperity
we are enjoying is not due to anything that the
Republican party has done. Let me dwell upon
thai for a moment. You remember we had pros
perity In 1852. The country had never before 'hat
time ln-en mire prosperous. : nut when the I resi
dential elections came around they went Demo
cratic, and Straightway the whole country pro
ceeded to go Democratic. The banks went Demo
cratic and the railroads went Democratic*, ami the
mill* and the mines and the factories and labor all
went Democratic. And the country stayed.
Democratic until 18rS. ami the great question
then, about which the American people were
concerned, was how COUld they most surely
restore prosperity. Our Democratic friends sal.l
the trouble was on account of our money.
on account of the gold standard, and that
there could be no prosperltv until we had free
silver. The Republicans said the money was all
right, and If they wire put Into power they would
maintain the then existing gold standard, as they
have done. They said the trouble was not a lack
of free silver, but the presence of free trade, ana
that the way to restore prosperity was to put the
Republics party in power, and put a protective
tariff law on the statute books.
In the course of the campaign we became so con
fident of our position that we prophesied In the
newspapers and on the stumn and everywhere that
if Mr. McKinley should be elected the moral effect
of that election would be to restore prosperity, and
thai it would at once ensue, end we thought it
would. The •■'lection cam» and he W«« elected, but
you member that prosperity did not immediately
«*»♦ in. I want to dwell upon this, to show thnt the
prosperity we have Is not an accident, but it Is the
result of what the Republican party has done. No
vember passed. December passed. January and Feb
ruary and March i crime and McKinley was In
augurated: still there was no return of prosperity,
everything was standing still, and go It continual
through March April, May and June, down until
Why, stmnly because when the people the morn-
Ing after election took a purvey of the field and
round that McKinley and a Republican Rouse of
Representatives were elected, they at th*> «am« Hm«
rote.l the fatt that In the Senate of the United
Strifes fie oDn^Pition wan in the majority. There
were but forty-three Republicans, and forty-five
Republicans were necessary to pass any measure.
Now, when you come to le^islnte it is the most
important thlp* in the world to have a majority In
favor of your legislation. And so th« people of
the country saM: "This Is a great Republican vic
tory but still the Rnpuhl'rans are In the minority
in the ?ennte and the Wilson law cannot be re
per.!e<l a«tl no tariff protection statutes can be
enacted without fortv-flve votes ln that body can

people of the country slid: "After'nll. this ■•;>»

have indicated, through the months Intervening be

Now* my fellow eltlz»ng. how did we pet over

Yes, my fellow citizens, we have prosperity and
■we have wit! It some things we would not have
at times if we had oir way, but the Republican
party shows In Its platform, and I want to re
peat it, that while we believe In the prosperity
of this country and recognise the rights of men
to do business" and mak'* aggregations of capital,
yet when t!i r 'j' undertake to engage in conspiracies
to limit trad.- or interfere with the rights of the
j-K-opie or suppress them we will meet that with
appropriate legislation that will deal with the mat
er at once.
But to prevent those things we do not propose
to hamstring the prosperity of the whole country.
To do awny with those evils we do not propose
to plunge the whole country into bankruptcy and
despair by putt-ing the Democratic party into
Now, my fellow citizens, It Is a good maxim to
l«-t we'll enough alone. We never bn.l such pros
perity as we now enjoy. It Is prosperity that ex
lends all over ibis country; It belong* to overy
class of our people, shared In from ocean to ocean.
It is the easiest thins In the world to dissipate. We
<ii'! not think c: '. illy enough on that point in
1*9.?. We then hr.d an all pervading prosperity
under the Administration of Mr. Harrison. No
body wanted to dissipate It, nobody thought of
dolris: so. and yet the result of electing a Demo
cratic President with a Democratic Senate and
Ilousp of Representatives, thus empowering them
to put their policies Into operation, dispelled that
prosperity and dissipated it from the country for
four years. Let us not have any more such ex
pfrianoea as that Now. that Is all I a«n going to
suy about tho trust business.
I sfe by the remarks made and the responses
given that you are pretty familiar with the facts
here in New-York that the trust part of the Dem
ocratic campaign has had a scrt of a chill lately.
I want to talk to you a little bit about Imperialism.
We have had a great deal of talk about Im
perialism. I read In a paper only at the last
hour the announcement from Washington that
to-day William .McKinley, President of the United
States, ha recalled General Chaffee, one of our
most distinguished soldiers, to command the Amer
ican forces In China, it becomes necessary once
in a while to exercise* authority, and when it does
If come necessary it has been found that the Con
stitution confers that authority upon the President
of the United States, and it would be a slander
on our Government, a slander on the men who
framed our Constitution, to say that when a lot of
barbarian Boxers pet to work to murder Ameri
can missionaries in China there la no power in
the American President to send troops to protect
t!.*m from ?tKh outrages We don't want China,
and we don't want any part of China, but we do
want American citizens in Chins and everywhere
throughout the worM to be saved, and with Mr.
We Kin ley and Theodore Roosevelt at the head of
the Union our citizens will be safe.
Now, in the same connection, and what seems
to be ■ very good Introduction to what I Bald
about Imperialism, I also see that the President
has ordered from Manila, our own base of opera
tions in the Far East, a number of gunboats and a
regiment or two. and among thoee vessels ordered
from there was the Oregon: They are going over
to China, rot on a mission of conquest, but they
are going to see to It that the lives of American
citizens are protected and the sovereignty of the
I-eople of the United State* respected, and will stay
there until that is accompllthed.
Now. i was very much In»ivrep«i»d with the way
Mr. Low put it that we got to the Philippine*. I
don't need to detain you to dwell upon that war
iti beginning, its cause. You remember Ii was lii
regard to Cuba; you remember it was a war of
humanity; that we stood it as long as we could
snd saw those people at our very doors suffering
barbarities Inhuman, and intervened only when
that was the only thi-i •; to put a stop to It. But
our Intervention In Cuba meant war with Spain.
Now, our Democratic friends say It was only our
Intention to get Into the Philippines. How did we
get Into the Philippines? We did not Mart out
with the Philippines ln view. We were thinking of
Cuba alone, and I don't believe there were forty
men in all Washington at the time, who knew there
was such a place as the Philippine Island 1
know I did not. And you ought to nave soen, when
the news came that our Heel had been ordered from
Hong Kong to Manila, the members of the House
and the members of the Senate Hocking out Into
the corridor, where the big maps are, to study
geography, to calculate how long It would take
them to get there.
why. my fellow citizens, wo had only Cuba, In
view, but when our resolution, adopted by Con
gress, directing the President to Intervene, was met
by Spain with a declaration of war, we could only
meet It with a counter declaration of war, and
when war Was declared between the two powers
all the positions of each were open to attack by
the other. Then it was we paid attention to tho
Philippines. Now, I don't know whether you are
all familiar with the fact— l know most of. you
are. but some may not be, and therefore you will
pardon me for stating It— that It is according: to
international law that when two nations declare
war on each other the ship* of each must get
out of the neutral ports of other powers where they
happen to be within twenty-four hours after the
first declaration of war. For years we had been
building UP a trade In the Orient; many of our
citizens had gone there, had gone to China, to
Japan, to the other Islands; we had been building
up a great commerce there, and were expecting to
still strengthen and Increase It, but that we might
be able to protect our interests there and the lives
of our citizens there, we had been maintaining a
fleet in the*- waters— not a very big one. but It
happened to be big enough.
War was declared, and our fleet was at Hong
Kong, and in command of a man you did not know
anything about then, but a man with whom the
whole world has become familiar si Admiral
Dewey since. War was declared. Within twenty
four hours Dewey had to get out of that harbor
of Hong Kong because It belonged to a neutral
one of England's ports, where the has Jurisdic
tion. Where could he go? There was not a
place where he could stop and let down anchor
anywhere between there and San Francisco. We
did not even have a coaling station In the East.
It Is not that way now. And so the President
sent Dewey this kind of a cable: "War has been
declared Find the Spanish fleet and capture or
destroy It." You will observe the President gave
him an option— "capture or destroy It"— and Dewey
did not want to be bothered hauling them around
with him over the ocean, so he destroyed it, and
sent the last one of them to the bottom of tho
sea to join ilia Maine.
Well, now there we were at Manila. That Is
how we got there. We had our interests there
to protect afterward as before. We needed our
fleets in those waters, but there was no place in
those waters where our fleets could remain, ex
cept in that country that we had captured. We
ended the war. As Governor Roosevelt said the
other day, in seconding the nomination of Presi
dent McKinley, If that war was not a great war it
was only because it didn't have to be. But events
passed rapidly. in one hundred days peace came.
Our fleet was still there, and then -we were con
fronted with the question of what should be done
with the Philippines. Why at that time there
was a unanimous opinion throughout the country
that we ought not to turn those Philippines back
to the sovereignty of Spain, which for over three
centuries had been ruling that people tyrannically
and oppressively. Wo had broken her sovereignty
In Cuba, and we had driven her out of Porto Rico,
and we were driving- her out of the Philippines
also, in the name of humanity.
tXow. if we drove Spain out. who was to take
>ssesp!on? Germany, England. France — any of
lose nations— have been glad to have taken
'. i: ■• Philippines off our hands, but we had not any
rlcrht to turn the Philippines over to them, and the
Fllipluos themselves, through their duly accred
ited representatives, both at Washington and be
fore the Commissioners of Peace at Paris, protest
ed nirainst our leaving them to be despoiled by
other nations.
And so It seemed to be a matter of necessity that
we should take title to them ourselves, for we knew
that If we took the title ourselves after such per
formances as those of Dewey and Sampson and
Schley and others, no other Power would question
our right. So we thought we would take the title,
and we would adjust all differences that might
arise between the Filipinos hti<l ourselves. Now
what difference*! were anticipated? We did not
expect we would have any that would assume any
Important proportions. We took the people of the
Philippine Islands for the purpose of doing them
good, for the purpose of establishing our flag and
our sovereignty over them and under our protection
giving them enlightenment, uplifting them ami giv
ing them authority to govern themselves as quickly
as they wero shown capable to do so.
But before we could proceed with that pro
gramme the difficulty that has been referred to
here to-nigh.l began. Airutaaldo rebelled. Mr. Low
has told you what Abraham Lincoln said when those
opposed to the war for the Union rose up and said
that there was no power ln the Constitution to
preserve the Constitution. So people rose up and
said to William McKinley. "You cannot suppress
this Insurrection In the Philippine [stands. " "Why."
said the President, "we have taken title; we have
asserted our sovereignty, and Congress has ad
journed. Congress has left me here as the cus
todian of all the property that belongs to the
United States, and I do not believe I will let any
body get a\\4y with any of it until Congress comes
back." 'X j'
And ,Hv> with malice toward none, with charity
for arVi?ut wfth a determination, a patriotic de
termlnsftloni -that our flap snould be respected
wherever It floats, we proceeded to suppress that re
bellion. Our Democratic friends say it is not en
tirely suppressed yet. I expect thai Is true. I am
sorry If it is so. I cannot help, when I hear that
said by our Democratic friends, stopping a moment
to note the fact thai the Filipinos made assertion
after assertion and indication after Indication that
the rebellion would have been suppressed, and to
the last man. long ago except for the hope they
have that William J. Bryan will be elected Presi
dent In November. So they have announced in
their programme, and so it Is asserted in many
Now. my fellow citizens, we have been studying
the Philippine Islands a good deal since we <-nme
Into possession of them, and we have come to the
conclusion that we have a high duty with respect
to them. Have you stopped to consider how many
people. ther» are" in those Islands? Tiny aggregate
something like eight or ten millions, but they are
broken info something like eighty tribes or peonies,
each having a different language, having a differ
ent literature and having different ordinances of
government and Institutions of government, It is
a great problem to determine how to govern them.
The President has sent some of the ablest men In
the Nation there. Among others he sent there the
distinguished president of Cornell University, and
he labored with heart and soul and with great In
telligence. He also sent another Commission, at
the heed of which Is Judge William H. Taft. of
Cincinnati, an able, capable, honest and patriotic
man, who has no disposition to oppress them In
any way. but whose heart and soul are filled with
the desire to give them an opportunity to take
care of themselves.
But that Is going to be troublesome. They are
a people at the head of whom is Agulnaldo, a* very
capable people in many respects. They are the.
most important in all the Islands, but as you pass
from tribe to tribe they get down pretty low, some
of them.
We have this responsibility on us. We could not
turn away from It if we would, and we haven't
any disposition to so if we could, because It Is a
matter of duty, and the highest duty that ever falls
to the lot of a nation to perform. We have ber-t
going forward in this work conscientiously The
President has been giving it his undivided atten
tion, and he Is going on in that way with which
yon are familiar.
Mr. Foraker closed his address with laudatory
remarks concerning Senator Depew, who fol
lowed him.
Assemblyman Samuel S. Slater then proposed
the following resolutions, which were adopted:
Be it reeolved. That . we, the Republicans of the
County of New-Tork, In mass meeting assembled,
heartily indorse and ratify the firm platform of
Republican principles which were adopted, and the
nomination" for the offices of President and Vice!
President of these United States which were made
by the Republican National Convention at Phila
delphia. Perm.. on June 19 and 20. 1900; and
lie It further resolved, Thnt the present Adminis
tration of our National Government, which has
produced abundant prosperity at home and com
manded respect for the (lag and distinction for
American citizenship abroad, not only conclusively
establishes the eminent statesmanship and hiith
patriotism of President McKinley, but it command
ed his rpnornination and obtains our responsive sun
port for his re-election:
De it further resolved, That with especial pleas
ura and pride we remarked the spontaneous ver
dict of the Republicans of our sister States nam
ing as candidate for the second highest office in thr
gift of the American people our public spirited
fellow-citizen, the sturdy product of our best Amer
ican Influences, the author, soldier and statesman
Governor Theodore Roosevelt.
Mr. Low Introduced Senator Depew by re
marking that he would not attempt to paint the
lily or gild refined gold by eulogizing New-
York's junior Senator. He called upon him.
therefore, without indulging in any preliminary
observations. When he came forward In re
sponse, Senator Denew's reception was of the
most flattering nature. For fully two minutes
he was applauded and greeted with such cries
as "Our Chauncey" and "Peach." Silence was
at length obtained and the Senator proceeded
to say:
Mr. Chairman an.l Fellow Citizens: I have

culiarities which made It an expression of the dom
nant sentiment of the times. After each one of
them there were heart-burnings to be allayed and
enmities growing out of the hot contention of rival
candidates to be pacified. Even where they were
most unanimous there was. either open revolt or
hostile muimurs against the rei nits. The Repub
lican Convention at Philadelphia la the first where
there was no dispute, no rivalry, and no contest
for either President or Vice-President

chosen representatives of the party from every
State and Territory him been accepted with joyful
acclaim all over the country There lx not a i.iun
of dissatlsfsctlon not a murmur of dissent any
where. It is my habit to gather opinions from the
citizen whom I meet ami who generally knows me
whether or not I do him. The cabman who drove
me* from the station said. 'You have given us a fine
ticket." The conductor on the elevated railroad
said a "sure winner, Senator." Th» railroad men
on the trains and around the Grand Central Station
acted end talked as If one of the happiest events
possible ha.i come Into their lives. The men of
affairs in the city said, 'The Convention has ar
rested distrust and restored confidence."
\t tii i c reaßo » i able certainty of the election of
Aii'Klnley and Koosevelt we can enlarge our busi
ness, engage in new enterprises, construct new fac

build more ruilroads. with the certainty that the
investment of our money njnd the opportuulty for
larger employment for labor will depend entirely
upon our wisdom and business sagacity, and not
Incur the perils of political disturbance.
ti T . h ! lITIf ' comln«r of the delegates from a Na
tional convention is either a cheerful greeting or

Very different will be the gathering on the Fourth
of July in Kansas City. It must be a depressing
Hansatlon to be a member of a Convention whose
assembly creates alarm. Public men love to believe
that their fellow citizens have confidence ln their
eirorts eventuating in the public good.
It is a new experience In our politics for the
meeting of one of , the great parties in National
Convention to produce in July an arctic chill. Tho
election of Cleveland in '84 created no panic. His
re-election in "92. with a Congress which would
support his measures, caused no immediate disturb
ance. It wag only when Democratic measures of
revenue and finance practically bankrupted the
Government, Impaired private credit and paralyzed
business aod Industry .hat the country became
alarmed. The alarm, however, only went so far
as to repudiate the economic policies which on trial
hud proved disastrous failures.
But when at Chicago in '96 the "Wild Men from
Borneo drove out of the party councils all its
statesmen of approved experience they relegated to
private life the Abram S. Hewitts, the William C.
\i hltneys. the Bourk« Cockrans. the Edward Coop
era in our own Btate and drove from the party
every man almost of National reputation in other
States whose name on the ticket or behind the tick
et was security for public safety— then there was a
feeling that we were on the eve of a revolution.
Every citizen who la prosperous In his farm, ln
h s factory, in his store, in hi.i employment or in
his workshop Is looking to Kansas City with fear,
1 he utterances of the leader who is to control the
deliberations of this body give no hope of better
times for any man who has a profitable business or
a good Job. Even the most optimistic Democrat be
lieves and privately says that the election of
Colonel Bryan would produce, at least for a time—
possibly for two years— a suspension of new enter
prises and .i hand to mouth policy In the conduct
01 business, which produces always failures, poor
markets and weak purchasing power.
To-morrow I sail for Europe on one of tho great
steamers of the American Line, the St. Paul. Her
speed and magnificent performance on the ocean
are the triumphs of the American shipbuilder. In
numerable times she and her companion ship have
carried passengers and cargo safely across The
great sea. If I should leave her ln mldooean, with
all her comforts, her luxuries and the certainty of
her safety anil of her delivering me on time and
nappy on the other side, to take a raft for the pur
pose of paddling ashore on some unknown coast or
to be picked up by some wanderer on the wave. I
should be furnishing an example for the voter who
leaves the certainty of everything he cares for in
tins world for himself and his family by leaving
McKinley and Roosevelt for Bryan and Towne
and the rudderless unknown.
In 1896 the Bryan managers in their advocacy of
10 to 1 and a depreciated currency said: "This new
policy will produce a panic, but it will be only
temporary and then on the ruins of current bust
ness we will built for better times." The burned
«l «*£■• 'he ruined farmhouses, the people killed
or fled, and the garden of Poland made a desert
and a waste. Is the ghastly story of what is
Known In history as rsace at Warsaw. The Repub
lican party said to the people in 1596: "We offer
you no experiment, but a statesman for candidate
for I resident/ who as a soldier, citizen and states
man has performed distinguished services for his
country. We promise you the policies and the
measures which, whenever tried, have made the
country prosperous, powerful and rich "
rha Democratic doctor said to the patient writh
ing in Industrial and financial distress: "i do not

a party deserves the continuing confidence of
the people which fulfils its promises but the
promises must result in beneficial measures. We
promised to place our country, now one of the
greatest of commercial nations. In harmony with
its customers and with the markets of the globe

It is a curious fact In the evolution of nations to
higher standards of living and of action that in
vention and discovery meet the demands of the
broader Intelligence and the more exacting civil
ization. 'I ho demand for gold to meet the wants of

dustrial conditions to the position we have sud
t.enly assumed among commercial nations, the ex
perience of our revenues under the Dingley bill
meeting all the requirements of the Government
and a Treasury possessing a large surplus. Is an
object lesson never to be forgotten of the vivify-
Ing and revivifying powers of the principles or pro
tection. Against the annual deficiency and the in
crease of the National debt by the rale of bonds
which marked and attended the modified free trade
of a Democratic tariff for revenue only stands in
brilliant contrast our overflowing National wealth
and the funding of our debt in bonds bearing 2 per
cent interest which already command a premium
under the Administration of William McKinley.

protection of the dearest rights of our people of
the rescue of our kindred and the position of our

We have all seen the picture and felt quicker
pulsations a3 we viewed It of the period In the
impassioned sermon of Peter the Hermit when the
knights gathered about him raised their standards
and swore upon the cross to enter upon a crusade
for the redemption of the Holy Sepulchre. That
was a mission in an age of chivalry and. from
our standpoint of to-day, absurdities. This Is an
Industrial age. All countries are brought together
in the same markets— that is. all productive coun
tries of high civilization— by steam and electricity.
At the Republican Convention at Philadelphia,
when McKinley was nominated by a common im
