Day Banquet of the Blackhawk
Democracy at Waterloo, la.,
Wednesday Evening, January
8th, IQ02.
Democracy la the equation between
men and measures abstractly antipodal.
It Is amoral compact between diversi
fied class Interests which fortxs the al­
tar of incenBe In the inuer sanctuary ot
the temple of liberty.1 It is the "magnH
charter" of civilization baBed on the
philosophy of human equality. It it
the ethical element in government
which intuitively subordinates Individ
ual interests to the common good.
Democracy was the dream of the
ancient philosophers and poetB. It was
the practical realization of the cigh
teenth century Btatesmeu and heroes. It
found Its best expression in the sublime
utterances of the Declaration of Inde­
pendence. Its developed fruit in the su
perb action of Jefferson and Jackson in
maintaining new party organization
and structural government, the abso
lute equality of rights and opportunl
ties wrung from despotism through
the berolc martyrdom and blood of the
llamiltonlan philosophy may have rep
resented the organizing genius of the
American Republic, but Jefferson Ian.
Ism was the qulcfcening_wjj|riis!len(
which saved it to popuUpiovere'siify
and from cowardly surrender t- patern
alistic and monarchical tendencies.
The definition and history of Amerl
caa democracy are wri^-en in the Uvea
ite prtat /uunder.and leaders. The
names of Jefferson and Jackson are
•vuonymong wlUr patriotism aud devo
bttman rights as broad as hu­
manity its self. They gave to their
country the first fruits of their genius.
Amid all the temptations of success
ful life tbey never forgot that the lie
claratlon of Independence of '7l was
the legacy heroism bequeathed to the
poor and oppressed, that lives sacrlilc
ed on the altar of the Revolution meant
that the despotism of the throne should
not be supplanted by the despotism of
Last Wednesday night was a memor
able occasion for the democracy of
Blackhawk county and their invited
guests, It was Jackson's Day, and
more than 200 of those who walk iu the
ways where Jackson went, assembled
around the banquet boar asbuojant
and hopeful as though they had but
just returned fron a triumphant vie
One of the objects of the banquet was
to wipe out all paBt party differences',
and help to bring together all factions
of the party throughout the stale. Last
year democratic delegates returned
bome from their state convention, not
Inspired as they should have been wiLh
new zeal to grapple with the evils
of the hour, but discouraged aud dis
heartened on account of the senseless
bickerings of a few, over questions not
vitally important at that time. If the
speeches at this banquet are any iudi
cation of democratic thought through
out the state, no repetition of tliu of
feDBe of last year will be possible in
Iowa for many years to come.
The speaking program couBisled prin
cipally of Ave carefully prepared re­
sponses, each appropriate lor the oc
casion, and each sparkling with thought
and patriotism of a very high order. It
was generally rumnrkuJ by those pres­
ent that they bad never before listened
to live aB good speeches on like oc
casion. The Bpeakers deserving of this
commendation were Hon. J. M. X'ar
Bons, of liock uapids, who rtsponded to
the toaBt, "The Day We Celebrate"
Hon. S. II. Bashor, of Waterloo, who
spoke of "Democracy, Its Mission titul
ItB Opportunities Judgo M. J. Wade,
of Iowa City, who talked iu a masterly
and statesmanlike manner about "Le
gitimate and lllegitimtte Combina
tions of Cai-ital Judge 1*. M. Smock,
of Waverly, who told about" Driucjcrutic
Heroes of the Late War aud fix-Gov
ernor Horace lioies, who spoke oil the
subject of "Imperialism" from tho
standpoint of a patriot and lovtr of
These live speeches, while each on
widely different subjects, were so uni
formly good that it would be dillicult
to say which was the beBt. Mr. Bash
or's address, however, was more ap
plicable to state politics and conditions
than any of the others, and for that
reason we publish it in full. He spuke
as follows:
caste or that merit aud manhood iu a
cabin should be guaranteed all the op
portunities of progress aud place thai
monarchy in its proudest days could
dream of for the Bceptered boru. Nor
were theBe first great leaders alone in
their unBelllBh devotion to the cause of
equal rights.
livery page of American history is
made luminous by the matchless devo
tion to old democratic heroes to the
principles of justice and equality. From
JelterBon to the glorious old hero of the
battle of New Orleans, and from James
Monroe to the guiding spirit at Manila
bay and Santiago harbor the valor of
democratic geniua has always been dls-
played on the Bide of the oppressed. I
The tlrat generation of American
democrats learned the leseou of person
al liberty thoroughly. In the second
generation it passed through purpose
into character anil lias at last heconio
the unchangeublu linsis of party life.
Tills is the reason the political descend
ents of Andrew Jackson lire veriest
insly in favor 01 the ri^ul wpplication
if the Monroe Doctrine to this aide of
threatened, or the many are taxed to
build up the Interests of th-j few, the
democracy of 'lie twentieth century
will he round standing in the exictfoot
rints of .li-lT'rson and .luckson the
sann indomitable, champions of law,
order and eqjial ju.-tice.
Democracy does not arillclttliy manu­
facture issufs. It stands »s the tzuard
ian of a cjuleileration ul Irce common
wealths, bound together by a SHcred
compact that legislation ai civic mi
thorily should always primarily con
spire to promote the u'reatect good to
the greatet number. On any measure
that broadens human opportunities for
growth that educates aud uplifts the
masset" that maintains the integrity of
the constitution, the perpetuity of pub
lic institutions or conserves the inter
ests of commerce that guarantees pub
lie safety that upholds law and order
that holds "old nlor" in the heavens as
the eternal emblem of government by
the consent of the governed, democracy
is the organized conscience of the na
tlon and the party of undying progress
As long as human avarice Insists on
legislative measures to further eeltNh
ends as long as nrliiicUi combinations

paternalism for insinuating favored

11 the iusiguiu of freedom un
sttined and unmared by any mark of
a robbing war of conqmst, are those oi
which national democracy is as undi
vlded and unbroken hs time
On these issues there are no democrat
ic tactions. When the bugle calls,
every democrat springs to arms. lie
belongs to a constitutional party and
his faith is as high tiled aB the stars
that the constitutional phase of every
question effecting human condition
shall be iuviovbly ilutaiued. The
democracy never created an issue
The Declaration of Independence, tl
American coitnlitulion an the undying
hsnses invo'ved In the Inherent right
of man created the democracy.
And any question growiug out of
ell'oit to maintain th.» principles of ah
solute equality and justice involved I
the doctrine of popular sovereignty ii
inherently democratic ard instinctively
appeals to the democratic heart.
On the other hand any Issue which
is sectional, which appeals only to the
interest of the prejudice of a ciis
which creates division or or. which ihere
is a respectable element of doubt as to
the utility and benelits of the practical
application of its provisions cannot in
the very nature id' things bo made

Equal Partners,"byHoward
Fielding, will Vie our next serial.
Tliii is a story of mystery. Thg
interest aroused in the first
chapter is admirably sustained
to the end. A beautiful actress
is found in her room in New
York dangerously stabbed, with
one chance in a million for her
life. Who stabbed her? The
reader forms opinions to quickly
abandon them as the story rap
idly unfolds. The identity of
the criminal is so skillfully veiled
that it is nbt discovered until
the end. Our readers who are
good at solving mysteries in
stories will find something
worthy of their powers in
miss the first chapter.
