There is no reason why any earnest Re
publican should listen more patiently to
blurs cast al his party now than he did in
180S or in 1S72. There were men to talk
then of the work of the party being done
as though the conquering of the rebellion
was Uiu "only work the party was organized
to do. All men now know that the work
of the Republican party was only fairly be
gun in 1SGS, and most men feel that there
is still a great work for it to do.
The Republican party was from the first
an up-boilding organization. Its mission
was not only to preserve, but to develop
and create. It wis distinctly Amer
ican iu its philosophy and
policy, as all its measures were
directed to the development of the country
and advancement of the people. People
are prone to forget what the Republican
policy did for the west and northwest, for
education, for industrial interests, to say
nothing of the work ia preserving the
union and abolishing slavery.
The national sentiment of the party
made possible the union as it is today. The
industrial and protective policy built up
the manufacturing and trade interest now
so important. The homestead policy
created, as the dispatches fiom Washington
have it, "an empire larger than Germany,"
in what was an unsettled country. The
homesteads taken in the west in ten
years would make in area two states like
Illinois. The homesteads taken since 18G3,
when the law wtis passed, would make
three states and a-half like -Illinois. The
public land that has gone into the hands of
the people in ten years through purchase,
pre emption, homestead, timber chum, etc.,
measures loS,S'J2,12g acres, an area greater
than that of the German Empire or of
Through the homestead policy ofthe Re
publican paity great commonwealths have
been cieated, peopled by honest home
makers; and through its public improve
ment policy the greatest railroad .system in
the world has groV.'n into shape as the
means of developing a country counted
years ago as no better than a deseit. Pro
gress under the Republican rule has not
been along one line. The constructive era
of prosperity and progress did not
depend on the success of one idea
or one measure, but on the many
that have been the outgrowth of a policy
based on general principles as vital and
necessary to national existence and growth
now as they were twenty years ago. Al
ready many of the Republican measures
have been reversed. Many principle of na
tional policy, regarded as settled, have been
questioned unsettled. There is a growing
hostility in Democratic circles to the home
stead laws, because they contribute to the
growth of the Republican commonwealths.
The industrial policy that has done so
much for the country st large is openly
menaced. With the south in the saddle,
with the Democrats preparing to undo all
the work of the Republican party,therc are
Republicans who find excuse for acting as
the cat's paw in the hands of the Bourbon
