Lieutenant Governor Hlggins, president
of the state fair committee After the
cheering had subsided the president spoke
as follows.
The President's Speech.
In speaking on Laboi Day at the an
nual fair of the New York State Agricul
tural association, It is natural to keep
especially in mind the two bodies who
compose the majoilty of our people and
upon whose welfare depends the welfare
of the entire state If circumstances are
such that thrift, energy, industry, and
forethought enable the farmer, the tiller
of the soil, on the one hand, and the
wage woikei, on the other, to keep them
selves, their whes, and their children in
leasonable comfort then the state is well
off, and we can be assured that the other
classes In the community will likewise
prosper On the other hand, if there is,
in the long lun a lack of prosperity
among the two classes named, then all
other prosperity is sure to be more seem
ing than leal
It has been our profound good fortune
as a nation that hitherto disregarding ex
ceptional periods of depression and the
.normal and ine\itable fluctuations, there
has been on the whole from the begin
ning of our government to the present
da a progresslv e betterment alike in the
condition of the tiller of the soil and In
the condition of the man who, by his
manual skill and labor supports himself
and his famllv, and endeavors to bring
up his children so that they may be at
least as well off as and If possible better
off than he himself has been
Higher Standard of Living.
There are of course exceptions, but
as a whole the standard of living among
the farmers of our country has risen from
generation to generation, and the wealth
repiesented on the farms has steadily In
creased while the wages of labor have
likewise risen, both as regards the actual
monej paid and as regards the purchasing
power which that money represents
Side b side with this increase in the
prospeiltv of the wage-worker and the
tillei of the soil has gone On a great In
crease in the prospecity among the busi
ness men and among certain classes of
piofesslonal men, and the prosperity of
these men has been partly the cause and
partlv the consequence of the prosperity
of farmer and wage-worker It cannot bne
too often repeated that in

Our Community of irt*w*t _
It is all-essential to the cWwnancfe of
otir hkitfe national life tha* we should
recognize thi* community of interest
The w-ft*are of each of among our people,
us is dependent fundamentally upon the
welfare of all of ui, and therefore in pub
lic life that man Is the best representa
tive of each of us who seeks to do good
to each by doing good to all, m other
woids whose endeavor it is not to repre
sent any special class and promote merely
that class' selfish interest, but to repre
sent all true and honest men of all sec
tions and ill classes and to work for their
interests by working for our common
countiy.
We can keep our gov ernment on a sane
and healthy basis we can make and keep
our social sjstem what it should be, only
on condition of judging each man, not as
a member of a class, but on his worth as a
man It is an infamous thing in our
American life, and fundamentally treach
erous to our institutions, to apply to any
man any test save that of his personal
worth o rto draw between two sets of
men an distinction save the distinction
of conduct, the distinction that marks off
those who do well and wisely from those
who do ill and foolishly There are good
citizens and bad citizens in every clas
as in every locality, and the attitude of
decent people toward great public and so
cial questions should be determined not
by the accidental questions of employ
ment or locality, but by those deep-set
principles which represent the innermost
souls of men
The failure in public and in private life
thus to treat each jnan on his own merits,
the recognition of this government as be
ing either for the poor as such or for the
rich as such, would prove fatal to our Fe-.
public as such failure and such recognK
tion have always proved fatal in the past
to- other republics A healthy republican
government must rest upon individuals,
not upon classes or sections As soon as
it becomes government by a class or bj a
section tt departs from the old American
ideal
Freedom Good Only for Wise.
It is of course, the merest truism to say
that free institutions are of avail only to
people who possess the high and peculiar
characteristics needed to take advantage
of such institutions The century that
has just c'osed has witnessed many and
lamentable instances in which people have
seized a gov ernment free in form, or have
had it bestowed upon them, and yet have
permitted under the forms of liberty to
become some species of despotism or an
archy, because they did not have in them
the power to make this seeming liberty
one of deed instead of one merely of word
Under such circutnstances the seeming
libertj may be supplanted by a tyranny
or despotism in the first place, or It may
reach the road of despotism by the path
of license and anarchy It matters but
little which road Is taken In erther case
the same goal Is reached People show
themselves just as unfit for liberty
whether they submit to anarchy or to tyr
anny, and class government whether it
be the government of a plutocracy or the
government of a mob, fs equally incompat
ible with the principles established in the
days of Washington and perpetuated in
the days of Lincoln
Many qualities are needed by a people
which would preserve the power of self
government in fact as weir as in name.
Among these qualities are forethought,
shrewdness, self-restraint, the courage
which refuses to abandon one's Own
rights, and the disinterested and kindly
good sense which, enables one to do jus
tice to the rights of others Lack of
strength and lack of courage tmflt men for
self-government on the one hand, and on
the other, brutal arrogance, envy, in
short any manifestation of the spirit of
selfish disregard, whether off one's own
duties or of the rights of others, are
equally fettak
Republics tn History. ~
In the history of mankind many re
publics have risen, have nourished for a
less or greater time, and then have fallen
because their ctttsens lost ttee power of

government for the benefit of the people
as a whole
Again and again in the republics of
ancient Greece in those of mediaeval Italy
and .mediaeval Flanders, this tendency
was shown, and wherever the tendency
became a habit it invariably and inevi
tably proved fatal to the state. In the
final result it mattered not one whit
whether the movement was in favor ot
one class or of another, The outcome was
equally fatal whether the country fell
into the hands of a wealthy oligarchy
which exploited the poor or whether it
fell under the domination of a turbulent
mob which plundered the rich In both
cases there resulted violent alternations
between tyranny and disorder, and a final
complete loss of liberty to all citizens
destruction in the end overtaking the
class which had for the moment been
victorious as well as that Which had mo
mentarily been defeated The death knell
of the republic had rung as soon as the
active power became lodged in the hands
of those who sought, not to do justice
to all citizens rich and poor alike, but
to stand for one special class and for
its interests as opposed to the interests
of others.
Our Future Assured.
The reason why our future is assured
lies in the fact that our people are gen
uinely skilled in and fitted for elf-govem
ment and therefore will spurn the leader
ship of those who seek to excite this
ferocious and foolish class antagonism
The average American knows not only
that he himself intends to do about what
Is right, but that his average fellow-coun
tryman has the same intention and the
same power to make his intention effec
tive He knows, whether he be business
man, professional man, farmer, mechanic,
employer or wage worker, that the wel
fare of each of these men is bound up
with the welfare of all the others, that
each is neighbor to the o'her is actuated
by the same hopes and fears has funda
mentally- the same ideals, and that all
alike have much the same virtues and the
same faults
Our average fellow-citizen is a sane and
healthy man, who believes in decency and
has a wholesome mind He therefore feels
an equal scorn alike for the man of wealth
guilty of a mean and base spirit of arro
gance toward those who are less well oft*
and for the man of small means who in
his turn either feels or seeks to .excite in
others the feeling of mean and base envy
for those who are better off The two
feelings envy and arrogance are but op
poslte sides of the same shield, but dif
ferent developments of the same spirit
Fundamentally, the unscrupulous rich
man who seeks to exploit and oppress
those who are less well off is in spirit not
opposed to but identical with, the un
scrupulous poor man who desires to plun
der and oppress those who are better off
Courtier and Demagog Alike.
The courtier and the demagog are but
developments of the same type under dif
ferent conditions each manifesting the
same servile spirit the same desire to rise
by panderlrg to base passions, tho one
panders to power in the shape of a singls
man and the other to power in the shape
of a multitude So likewise the man who
wishes to rise bj wronging others must by
right be contrasted, not with the man who
likewise wishes to do wrong", tho to a dif
ferent set ot people, but with the man who
wishes to do justice to all people and to
wrong none
The line of cleavage between good and
bad citizenship lies, not between the man
of wealth who acts squarely iby his fel
lows and the man who seeks each day's
wage by tliat day's work, wronging no one
and doing his duty by his neighbor, nor
5et does this line of cleavage divide the
unscrupulous wealthy man who exploits
others In his own interest, from the
demagog, or from the sullen and envious
being who wishes to attack all men of
pioperty whether they do well or ill On
the contrarj the line of cleavage between
good citizenship and bad citizenship sepa
rates the rich man who does well from the
rich man who does ill, the poor man of
good conduct from the poor man of bad
oonduct. This line.., of ajeavage lies at
right angles to any sucn^arbitrary line of
division as that separating one class from
another, one locality from another, or
men with a certain degiee of property
froni those of a less degree of property.

Qualities of a Good Citizen.
The good citizen is the man who, what
ever his wealth or his poverty, strives
manfully to do his duty to himself, to his
family, to his neighbor, to the state, who
is Incapable of the baseness which mani
fests itself either in arrogance or in envey,
but who while demanding justice for him
self is no less scrupulous to do justice to
others It is because the average Amer
ican citizen, rich or poor, is of just this
type that we have cause for our profound
faith in the future of the republic
Ours is a government of liberty, by,
thru, and under the law Lawlessness
and connivance at law-breakingwhether
the law-breaking take the form of a ciime
of greed and cunning or *ot a crime of
violenceare destructive not only of or
der, but of the true liberties which can
only come thru order If alive to their
true Interests rich and poor alike will
set theh faces like flint against the spirit
which seeks personal advantage by over
riding the laws without regaid to whether
this spirit shows itself in the form of
bodily violence by one set of men or in
the form of vulpine cunning by another
set of men
Let the watchwords of all our people
be the old familiar watchwords of honesty,
decency, fair-dealing and common sense
The qualities denoted by these words are
essential to all of hs, as we deal with the
complex industrial pioblems of to-day, the
problems affecting not merely the accum
ulation but even more the wise distri
bution of wealth We ask no man's per
mission when we require him to obey the ^
law, neither the permission of the poor
mas nor yet of the rich, man Least of
ail can, the m&n ot great wealth afford to
break the law even for his own financial
advantage, for the law is his prop and
support, and it is both foolish and pro
foundly unpatriotic for him to fail in giv
ing hearty support to those who show
that there is in very fact one law and
one law only, alike for the rich and the
poor, for the great and the small
Men sincerely interested in the due pro
tection of property, and men sincerely in
terested in seeing that the just rights of
labor are guaranteed, should alike remem
ber not only that in the long run neither
the capitalist nor the wage-worker can
be helped in healthy fashion save by help
ing the other, but also that to require
eftheF side to obey the law and do its full
duty toward the community fa emphatic
ally to that side's real interest
Mob Violence Depfored.
There Is no worse enemy of the wage
worker than the man who condones mob
violence to any shape or who preaches
class hatred, and surely the slightest ac
quaintance with our Industrial history
should: teach, even the most short-sfghted
that the ttflnes of most suffering for our
people as a whole, th& times when busi
ness is stagnant, and capital suffers from
shrinkage and gets no return from its
Investments, are exactly the times of
hardship and want and grim disaster
among the poor If all the existing Instru
mentalities ot wealth could be abolished,,
the first and severest suffering- would come
among those o* us who are least well off!
at present. The wage-worker Is weft o*E
only when the rest off the country i well
off, and he can best contribute to this
general well-being by showing sanity andf
a firm purpose to do justice to others.
In his turn the capitalist who la rtally
a conservative* the man who has fore
thought as weK as patriotism, should
EwfortHy welcome every effiort, legislative

There is no room in 6ur healthy Ameri

life to shirk the duties which life ought
to bring Life can mean nothing worth
meaning unless Its prime aim Is the doing
of duty the achievement of resists worth

What Is Good Legislation?
In other words, legislation to be per
manently good for any class must also,
be good for the nation as a whole, and
legislation which does injustice to any
c'ass is certain to work harm to the na
tion Take om currency system for ex
ample This nation is on a gold basis
The treasury Of the public is in excellent
condition Never before has the per capita
of circulation been as large as it is this
day, and this circulation, moreover, f*
of money every dollar of which is at par
with gold Now, our having this sound
currency system is of benefit to banks
of course, but it Is of innnftely more bene
fit to the people as a whole because of
the healthy effect on business conditions
In the same way, whatever is advis
able in the way of remedial or corrective
currency legislationand nothing revolu
tionary is advisable under present condi
tions^must be undertaken only from the
standpoint of the business community as
a whole, that is, of the American body
politic as a whole. Whatever is done, we
cannot afford to take any step back

away the best prize that life offers is
the chance to work hard at TVork worth

men whom we most delight to honor in
all this land are those who, in the iron
years from '61 to '65 bore on their shoul
ders the burden of saving the union They
did not choose the easy task They
did not shirk the difficult duty Deliber
ately and of their own free will they
strove for an ideal, upward and onward
across the stony slopes of greatness They
did the hardest work that was then to be
done, they bore the heaviest burden that
any generation of Americans ever had ^o
bear, and because they did this they have
won such proud joy as it has fallen to the
lot of no other men to win and have
written their names fore\ermore on the
golden honor roll of the nation As it
is with the soldier so it is T\ith the civil
ian To win success in the business
woild, to be come a first-class mechanic,
a successful farmer, an able lawyer or
doctor means that the man has devoted
his best energy and power thru lorig years
to the achievement of his ends
Comparison with Family.
So It is" In the life of the family, upon
which, in the last analysis, the -whole wel
fare of tfie nation rests. The man or
woman who, as bread-winner and home
*vaker, or as wife and mother has done
all that he or she can do, patiently and
uncomplainingly, is to be honored, and is
to be envied by all those who have never
had the good fortune to feel the need and
duty of doing such work The woman
who has borne, and who has reared as
they should be reared, a family of chil
dren has In the most emphatic manner
deserved well of the republic Her bur
den has been heavy, and she has been able
to bear it Worthily only by the possession
of resolution, of good sense of conscience
and of unselfishness But if she has borne
it well, then to her shall come the supreme
blessing for in the words of the oldest
and greatest of books, "Her children shall
rise up and call her blessed* , and among
the benefactors of the land her place must
be with those who have done the best and
the hardest work, whether as law-givers
or as soldiers, whether in public or in pri
vate life
This is not a soft and easy creed to
preach It is a cieed willingly learned

because he is engaged in one occupation

London, Sept 7 As an outcome of the
disclosures made in the report of the
South African war moclmttee it Is ru
mored in wel Informed quarters here that
the resignation of Lord Lansdowne, the
former secretary and present foreign sec
retary may be expected shortly It i3
added that he wll lbe succeeded as for

A meeting of the cabinet will be held
shortly for the purpose of discussing the

by the proposal to send a monster peti
tion to King Edward for Lord Lans

ot cartoons Illustrating his incompetency,
will be-considered and that something will
be determined upon as necessary to stem
