THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1904. VOL. LXVII John Sharp Williams & Letter. Bead at Iroquois Club Banquet Given in Celebration of Jefferson's Birthday. _ Chicago, April 14,1904. j to be The following letter from the Hon. John Sharp Williams, of Mississippi, read at the banquet given by the Iroquois Club, of Chicago, last night in celebration of Jefferson's birthday: "To the Iroquois Club, Chicago, III.: was Gentlemen—I regret very much not to able to be with vou on the oc casion of the celebration of Mr. Jel ferson's birthday. I am in spirit and nutwithstand politically with you ing my bodily absence. There is in the history of all the world no birth well worth being day, except one, so celebrated by the masses of mankind. Mr. Jefferson was very nearly the only man of equal or of approximate celebrity in his time, who sincerely believed in the capacity of the people It is to him for self-government more than to any other man that we the first ten amendments to the Federal constitution. Without them there would have been no fundamen tal guarantees of freedom of speech, freedom of assemblage, freedom of religion, freedom from unreasonable search, in short, no bill of rights for the American people. Moreover, there would have been no distinct declara tion of the grea L - democratic princi pie that the powers not delegated to the Federal government are reserved to the states, or the people therein. In this day it is especially well to remember what Mr. Jefferson stood for. I would suggest that you have read to the Iroquois Club owe Home one Mr. Jefferson's first inaugural address. It is the political 'Sermon on the Mount' of all democrats, and would not make a bad platform for the democrats, even in this year of our Lord's grace, 1904. '"Are democrats anti-consolidation ists? Mr. Jefferson taught them the doctrine. Do democrats believe that national debt is not a national bless ing, but a national curse? Mr. Jef ferson taught them that. Do demo crats believe that there should be left to the individual every liberty possible, consistent with the welfare of other individuals, that there should be left to the town or the county the largest possible measure of home rule, that there should be lodged in the state every judicial and legisla tive power that is not strictly national and necessary to the public defense and to national independence? They got that lesson from Mr. Jefferson. Mr. Jefferson taught and taught wisely that as a rule, 'the people least governed are the best governed, and that the less Federal interference with local self-government in the family, in the town, in the county, and in the state, the better for all concerned. ''Do democrats believe that, within the scope of the exercise of Federal power, there should be as nearly as possible equal opportunities and equal burdens? Mr. Jefferson taught them that. Do democrats believe that the taxing power ought to be used for the purpose of raising a revenue to carry on a government constitution ally, economically and effectively ad ministered? That was one of Jeffer son's lessons, too. "Do democrats believe that the ob ject of all government is the happi ness and prosperity of the masses, 'the greatest good to the greatest number?' he being the author of the phrase. Do they believe that our foreign policy ought to be based upon the idea of friendship for all and en tangling alliances with none? He the Secretary of State under whose guidance Washington practiced the policy. Do democrats believe in a proper and right expansion over unpeopled areas or homogeneous and assimilable people—an expansion car rying with it equal laws and our common constitutional guarantees? Mr. Jefferson set the example and blazed the way. Are democrats anti colonialists? Stronger denunciations of colonialism and of the arbitrary, unlimited government lodged within the diecretion of the governors, that necessarily goes with it, were never penned than the utterances of Mr. i was Jefferson upon that subject. Do democrats believe that no community has a right to govern an -ther com munity across the seas in accordance with the uninformed dictates of its own sweet will? Mr. Jefferson was the pen of the revolution who wrote that doctrine large, j "Do democrats believe in amicable land reciprocal trade relations with the other nations of the world? Mr. Jefferson negotiated the first reci procity treaties. Do democrats be lieve in Monroe doctrine, its proper assertion and its proper limitations? Mr. Jefferson expressed the idea be fore Monroe, after consultation with him, who included it in a state paper. Do democrats believe militarism to be a curse, and that the farmer or mechanic ought not to be compelled to bear upon bis stooped shoulders a helmeted soldiery; that the military power ought always to be subordinate, not in words nor in law alone, but in spirit as well, to the civil authority? Mr. Jefferson was their forerunner there, too. "Do democrats think that in our relations with foreign countries we ought to be a true world power by setting a glorious example of liberty, home development, industry, prosper ity and sweet-winged peace? It was Mr. Jefferson who said: 'I frankly ad mit that my passion is peace.' Do democrats believe, however, in proper resentment of international wrong in bravo confrontment of pesitions of peril? It was Mr. Jefferson who put down the Algerine pirates, when En gland, 'the mistress of the sea,' was paying them a tribute. It was Mr. Jefferson who gave notice to the great Corsican himself, when the world was trembling at his nod, that 'the one power in all the world which could not be our friend and necessar ily must be an enemy,' was a strong European government in control of the Mississippi valley and its outlets. "There were no trusts in Mr. Jef ferson's day, but we may well under stand what his doctrine would have been concerning them, if will but re read what he said about the menace to the people's liberties and happiness which the undue amassment of great wealth in the hands of few people would occasion. He not only fore saw it, and did what he could to pre vent it, giving up his place in the Continental Congress in order to go home to Virginia and pull up, by the roots, primogeniture—the two sources whence the evil seemed to grow in his day. He went further—and fur ther than we are prepared to go, even now, at this day—when he said, that the time would come when the 'statu tory privilege of bequest and devise would have to be limited in the inter est of the well-being of society,' in whose interest it had been granted and that the amount which could be left by bequest or devise to any one person or for any one purpose should be demarked. "Intelligent, subtle and far-seeing; character, broad and and all-loving; a moral courage superb, consideration for the foibles and prejudices of others, exquisite courtesy, indiffer ence to personal enrichment; all these marked him a gentleman, and, as such, an embodiment of the highest ideals of the English speaking race.

Special Correspondence i To The Lexington Advertiser By our Washington Corres pondent. Washington, D. C., April IB, 1904 There have bien soma excellent speeches made in the House of Rep resentatives during this session by the democrats, and, asids from those speeches made by tbe Hon. John Sharp Williams, who always makes a good one, the best that have been made and that will make excellent cam paign material for the democrats in the approaching campaign, were those made by tha Hon. Champ Clark, of Missouri, the Hon. Eaton J. Bowers, of Mississippi, and the Hon. Adam M. Byrd, of Mississippi. Mr. Clark, of Missouri, spoke entirely on the tariff question. He hit the republicans some hard jolts in the coarse of his speech and they squirmed like a out worm. Another good speech on tbe tariff question, was the one made by the Hon. Adam M. Byrd, of Mississippi, and was devoted entirely to the man ner in which tha tariff affects the farmers in this country, and it will ha read with great interest bv them in this campaign. Mr. Byrd showed conclusively that the present appar ent prosperity of the farmer did not come from the Dingiey tariff rates, but from the failure of crops across tho sea and a shortage in the world's supply of cotton and other crops. He also showed that this prosperity was more apparent than real, for the cost of living had increased more than thirty per cent, sinoe 1897, which made it seem impossible for the present wave of prosperity to long continue in the agricultural dis tricts unless the government comes to the rescue and reduces the cost of production by removing the tax from agricultural implements, machi nery and other necessaries of life, the price of which Is now only affect ed by the consciences of the heartless trusts organized and perpetuated by the thieving schedules of the tariff law. He showed up the fact that the per capita wealth of Mississippi is only about $143, while that of Massachusetts is $1,419, and asked why it was that the farmer had been shackled in poverty for the past fifty years while his manufacturing brother had prospered, and said that there could be no answer except that the one is being robbed to enrich tbe other, and that the republican party is a joint heir in this legacy of shame. He showed up tbe fact that the trusts were selling goods abroad cheaper than at home, and that this method of robbing at home and un derselling abroad is rapidly revolu tionizing the fiscal policy of England, which, if carried out according to the ideas of Joseph Chamberlain, will de stroy the greatest market ia the world for the prodnets of the farmer in this country and absolutely impov erish him. The dire result will be brought about simply through the "stand pat" policy of the republican party, and its refusal to revise and reduce the tariff schedules on the trust made goods. Mr. Byrd's speech was a splendid effort and brought forth the eaeomiums of his colleagues. It will be made a campaign document in the campaign, and will do much to make the farmer think of the miser able treatment he is, and has been, receiving at the bands of ths republi can party. The best speseh of tha session on the negro problem was that recently delivered by the Hon. Baton J. Bow ers, of Mississippi. It was tha speseh of a statesman, a deep stndsat and a learned lawyer. It was in reply te a speech recently made by Mr. Gillett, of Massachusetts, arraigning tha South anent the negro. Mr. Bowers speech was temperate and forceful, and had the precision of a Ksntneky rifle and the force and effaet of a capias proflne. He demonstrated clearly the validity of the Mitaiaaippi constitution on ths suffrage question to the satisfaction of everybody, with the possible exception of the Union League Club of New York, which ha showed up in a ridiculous light aa tha possessor of an unwonted burden of ignorance of the law as to tha opera tion of the fourteenth and fifteenth amendmenta upea stake Hwttetfsw rela of in A oc are the A A at be to upon th« suffrage.

Mr. Bowers wss heartily congratulated h/ his colleagues on the leor of tha House, who gars him genaroua ap plause throughout the speech and tha closest attention. It baa bean re. marked here that tha state ef Missis, sippi has sent an exceptionally strong dslegation to this Congress, amongst the strongest members of which may be mentioned the Hon. John Sharp Williams, tha ablsat man in leader ship of the minority tinea tha daya of Crisp and Sam Bandall, ths Hon. Baton J. Bowers, the Horn Adam M. Byrd, and the Hen.
