A. BIG CONVERT.
Col. Geo. R. Wendling on the Tariff. HE IS A DEMOCRAT NOW. He Scores the Advocates of High Tariff and Pleads for Cleveland and Reform. A great many people in this city will remember Hon. George R. Wendling, the eloquent lecturer who Bpoke at the Academy of Music several times last winter. His discourses on several occa sions betrayed, in spite of his better judgment, his strong sympathy for the Republican party. But Tariff Reform has been too much for this intelligent lecturer, and he is out pleading for Cleveland, Thurman and Reform. At Shelbyville, 111., recently he made a great speech, which the St. Louis Re puldic published. Parts of it here fol low: The Republic introduces the speech in a short explanatory paragraph : The Hon. George R. Wendling, the widely known lecturer, spoke to-day at a great meeting at Shelbyville, 111., his home. He has taken no part in politics for some years, and although invited by Colonel Brice, of the National Democratic Committee, aud also by the State Central Committee of Illinois, to enter the cam paign, he declined. He consented to make one speech here, and the announce ment attracted wide attention and an immense audience. Mr. Wendling has a very large correspondence with men of all parties in almost every portion of the country, and he expresses without re serve the opinion that Cleveland will be re-elected and that Palmer will carry Illi nois. He will speak ag in November 3d, either here or in Chicago. Mr. Wendling spoke as follows: My Friends —There are things about the Republican party that I like. I love the name and fame of Lincoln. You cannot call the roll of the great men of modern times the whole world over and omit the name of Lincoln. He loved his country, he loved mankind, and from the highest station on earth he went up to his God with the manacles of 4,000, --000 slaves as an offering. I like Grant. He was simple, direct, magnanimous. He was one of the invincible warriors of the world, and along with Sheridan, Stonewall Jackson and Thomas, he made the American soldier immortal. 1 like Roscoe Conkling. I like his fathomless contempt for trickery. I like him because of his immaculate integrity. I like him because he hated a dishonest politician, and because he scorned the rings and the master of the rings. They killed him, but he will outlive them all. Imperious and autocratic he was no doubt, but it was the imperiousnees of a large man, the autocracy of an honest one. Whatever they call him, what care [, Aristocrat, democrat, autocrat—one Who can rule and dare not lie. And I like the prtriotic spirit of the old Republican party when it loved the Union. I like its catholic spirit when it stood the champion of the downtrodden against oppression, of the poor against monopolists, and for the whole country against a section. No American need be ashamed to have stood with Lincoln and Seward, with Chase and Sumner, with Carl Sebum and Fessenden, with Lyman Trumbull and John M. Palmer and say "I was a Republican." But within even the short span of my life I have seen Presbyterians become Unitarians and turn their backs on John Calvin. I have seen Methodists forget John Wesley and become free thinkers. I have seen Roman Catholics become Uni versalists, and I have seen Episcopalians and Baptists become infidels. So, too, have I seen seen a convention of Repub lican politicians, led by Foraker, Miller, Alger and other names almost unknown to the Republican masses, nominate a genteel and shrewd corporation lawyer for President on a platform which belies the convictions of three-fourths of the Repub lican party. It is a falsehood to say that Republican voters would prefer untaxed whiskey to a low tariff. Republican leaders at Chicago belied their followers and betrayed them when they pledged the Republican party to remove the tax from whisky and tobacco rather than lower other Federal taxes. That pledge was adroitly won by the manipulations of millionaire monopolists. It was not and is not the voice of that great body of moral and respectable men who made the Republican party a thing of power and influence. Nevertheless, the pledge has been solemnly made. Therefore, I must fol low these latter-day politicians, who, twenty-three years after the war, pledge a party of five million voters to war taxes in time of peace, even at the expense of untaxed whisky, or I must vote for Grover Cleveland. I belong to no party in the senee that lam for my party right or wrong. My party must go my way on a paramount question or we will not go together. No politician, no convention, no administra tion shall ever have a mortgage on my heart and brain. To God, to my own conscience and to my own sense of patriotic duty do I ft and amenable for my use of the freeman's priceless weapon, the ballot. No man but a coward or a beggar for party favors fears a party lash. That is one reason why I respect Clinton Fiske and Gover nor St. John and the Prohibitionists at large. Whether right or wrong, thty are not cowards. They are sagacious, too, end know their secret enemy. A wise and a brave fight they are making for the downfall of the Republican leaders, for with the power of those leaders broken, the pent-up moral forces in the Republican party will have free play, seek new allies, and do the world some good again. I can have no fui.ther parley with a Pro hibitionist in this campaign than to tell him that I agree with him that the Re publican politician is the chief obstacle now to more than one great reform. With that politician out of the way, the field is clear for another and a diffeient struggle. lam for Grover Cleveland. lam for him, not because he is a Democrat, nor because he is the nominee of the St. Louis Convention, but because he is as unselfish and devoted a patriot as Abraham Lincoln, as sagacious a politi cian as William H. Seward, as simple and unpretentious as Ulysses S. Grant, as incorruptible as Roscoe Conk ling, and because he combined all those shining qualities with the iron will and the iron nerve of Andrew Jack son and took by the throat the greatest enemy to human labor and human free dom that the world has known since human slavery went down before the emancipation proclamation. I hail Grov er Cleveland as tbe emancipator of abor»from the chains of a protected THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 23, 1888. monopoly. I greeted him in the name of millions of toilem in mines and factories, on the prairies and in forests, as their liberator from the subtle and cruel bondage of an insidious taxation which drains their resources and would keep them and their children a band of hirelings. I believe Buch men as Cleve land are sent for a high and important purpose. I see Washington front unhesitatingly the power of a British king; I see Jackson, with the righteous rage and strength of Sampson, throttle the United States bank; 1 see Lincoln, with divine faith in his troubled heart and divine paßsion in his sad face, strike down slavery; 1 see Cleveland smiting with the might of a giant a gigantic wrong the last relic of feudalism on our continent, and then I say that God reigns in the history of nations. I am told and know that there are honest voters in this land who think that a tariff for protection is a blessing to the toiler on the farm and in the mill. Let us talk it over then like honest men. Let us think it over day by day until November. If then we still differ the rest of us can live where the most of us can. Let me tell you what I think about it. If protection is a blessing, let us all have it. If one should be protec ed all should be protected, and each should have protection equal to the other. But that brings us where we started in—on an equality. That is not protection; that is equalization. Equal rights, equal privileges, and equal burdens is the opposito to protection. That will not suit the lumber king of Maine or Michigan, who wants me to pay $2 more for every 1,000 feet of lumber than I would have to pay if I go a few miles further on and buy across the line. Therefore he wants protection. Protec tion against whom? Why, protection against me. Think of it! Protection against me, his neighbor, living under the same government with him, on the same soil, and under the same precious flag. But what injury to him do I pro prose, against which he wants to be pro tected? He simply wants to be pro tected against my buying that that lum ber elsewhere! And what does he do? He is not strong enough alone, bo he confederates with the iron man, and both of them confederate with the salt .nan, and then all three of them confed erate with the blanket man, and all four of them confederate with the carpet man, and then the glass and pottery man is admited, and behold! we have a Northern confederacy as dangerous to a poor white man as the Southern Confed eracy was to the black man! This is the genesis of protection. But what is it? What does it signify ? Simply a system by which some Ameri cans are benefited at the expense of other Americans. You and I are the other Americans. It is a system by which those confederates make you and me buy from them, and pay them more for a coat, a sidewalk, a barn or a barrel of salt than if we were free men and could buy where we pleased. How am I pro tected? I own no mills; I have no salt wells; lam not the proprietor of a blan ket factory; I do not make chinaware nor carpets. But I hear that the tariff tax supports the government. What the government gets out of the tariff is revenue. Barring an unhealthy surplus, no one objects. But we are not talking of revenue, we are talking of p-otection. The Northern confederate shall not steal from me in the name of revenue tariff. But protection in the question. How am I benrfited by it. It gives employ ment and good wages to labor, 1 hear If the protected factory will render an annual account, deduct interest and clerk hire, and divide the profits with its workmen, then the statement is true—otherwise it is a pitiful sophism, and all the more pitiful because so many hungry man in our cities, with pale-faced wives aud ill-clad children be lieve it. Listen to me one moment, workingmen! The bravest and best friends the oppressed ever had, men like John Bright, Cobden and George and a nameless host of true hearts and clear thinkers, have denounced and ex posed that sophism a thousand times. Men that would die to better your lot, tell you that it is a delusion. You your selves know that the tbe factory imports cheap labor free of duty, cuts down yonr wages by their competition, adds the amount of the tariff to the cost of the article, and pockets the profits. You and I must pay their price because the same article made elsewhere is excluded by the confederate tariff, and so your wages, cut down by imported competi tion, are next absorbed by higher prices on all you buy. But I hear that protection furnishes the farmer a home market. It does. Let us be honest. If protection is a good thing for us all, I want it. It does fur nish the farmer a home market. But the thing that troubles the farmer is not a question of market. The world must buy from him. The world must go to him to be fed. If he stays at home the world will hunt him up. He is not in any danger of finding no market. Tbe question with him is not the market but the price after he gets to market. Liver pool, the commercial center of the agri cultural world, tells the farmer what he must sell at, and the Northern confeder ates tell him what he must buy at. Liverpool registers the rise and fall of that supply and demand which fixes the market price for the farmer's grain. The Atlantic cable tells him what he will get; high tariff legislation tells him what he must give. Do not let us deceive ourselves in this thing. Remember that protection iB a sys tem by which some Americans are bene fited at the expense of other Americans. Remember that it is kept alive by North ern Confederates. I don't like a South ern Confederacy, and 1 don't like North ern Confederacy. Ido not like it when Southern Confederates cornered the labor of the black farmer, and I don't like it when the Northern Confederates corner the labor of the white farmer. There ia a spirit in this land that will al low neither States nor citizens to com bine against the general welfare. The people of this country have said that no confederacy of States shall exist south of the Mason and Dixon line, and they will just as surely say that no confederacy of manufactures shall exist north of that line. As the one confederacy went down before hundreds of thousands of armed men led by Grant, so will the other con federacy go down before millions of voters led by Cleveland. The one con test ended in a restored Union, the other will end in equal rights, equal privileges, equal burdens and equal liberty for all Americans all over this wide continent. I do not know a thing that a Western farmer produces that is enhanced in value by protection. I scarcely know a thing that he buys that is not protected. Ido not know a thing that the Northern confederate sells which be sells for less by reason of protection. Ido not know one of those confederates that over divid ed his profits with a laborer. I never heard of one who did not pay as little as he could to his wage earners. I hear there are seventy-two millionaires in the first Pennsylvania county you strike when you go east by way of Pittsburg. In that same county there are tens of thousands of imported laborers brought in to cut down the wages of American workmen. There is not a millionnaire farmer in Illinois who made his money out of the soil! Under protection there never will be, nor one in Kansas, nor in Mis souri, nor lowa, nor one iv tha whole West. Farmers of Illinois mark this: The average Illinois farm was bought at $2 per acre forty years ago; then emigra tion, railroads, improved machinery and your own bone and sinew brought that land in the next twenty years up to $40, but in the last twenty years, though you have the two great markets of Chicago and St. Louis at your doors, that farm has not advanced in price nor paid a fair interest on its value. It is my honest judgment that Western land to-day would sell for 60 per cent more than it does if the steel rails relaid upon it, and the houses, barns and fences rebuilt upon it. did not have to pay a tribute of count less millions to the iron and lumber con federates. I am not only for Cleveland, but I am for John M. Palmer for Governor of this great State. I love Illinois. It is my State. Next to calling ourselves Ameri cans the proudest heritage I know of is to own Illinois as a birthplace. She is the imperial queen of the West. She is rich in intellect, rich in the patriotism and integrity of her sons, rich in her boundless wealth. She gave to the na tion Lincoln and Douglas and Grant. She sent to the front a quarter of a mil lion of as brave men as died at Ther mopyhe. She is too great and too rich to leave the vast affairs of her three millions of people in the continuous control of any set of politicians, be they Republicans or Democrats. I want a change. I want our State institutions overhauled. I accuse no man, but I want the accounts examined. I want to know why our State taxes are enormous and I want the investigation to be made by men who did not impose or enjoy the taxes. I know General Palmer. He is honest and brave. Illinois has not seen since Douglas died such a canvass as he is making. John M. Palmer can neither be bought nor frightened. He must be courageous and beyond bribery else I cannot understand why penitentiary commissioners, asylum trustees and a small army of State employees who are suspected of having formed rings in every State institutiou, are flying up and down the prairies of our commonwealth to compass his defeat. I am not afraid of the Democratic party. I am not afraid of the Republican party when its honest voice and con science are not stifled by trading poli ticians. The masses of both parties can be trusted, else self-government is a fail ure. Each party has done glorious things in the past, and each has blundered, but on the foremost issue of this hour the Democratic party is right. The Demo cratic party led the country through a successful war with England in 1812 and through a successful war with Mexico in 1847. The Republican party led the country safely through the civil wai of 1861. Under Democratic leader ship we became a mighty Repub lic. Under Republican control we solved many grave problems and became mightier than before. Each party has given to the country noble patriots and wise statesmen. I abhor that slavish party spirit which shuts its eyes to all good save in its own party. I am per fectly willing to trust for awhile longer the destinies of this republic to the party that gave us Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson and Grover Cleveland. I am more than willing, I am anxions. to trust the fate of the laboring man and the farmer to that party whose strength to-day lies among poor men and not among those factory lords and protected monopolists who have formed on our soil a confederacy as dangerous as the one which went down in 1865. I care nothing for the personal gains of politics. I have asked no personal favors, I will ask none, at Cleveland's hands. I have seen him, talked with him, admired his rugged honesty, his broad common sense, his consecration of himself to duty. He believes in God and believes in the people, and I believe as he does and believe in Cleveland too. He led his party to victory with the grandest motto that ever a leader wrote on his banner —"Tell the truth." He would not lie to get the office; he will not lie to keep it. He has torn away the veil and exposed the inequalities and in justice of the protective system, and, faithful to his motto, he told the truth. He came up, not through luxury, but through adversity, to his high place, and he learned in his youth, and knows far better than General Har rison knows.the struggles and the bitter ness of ill-requited toil. I utter not one word against the character or the intel lectual fitness of Benjamin Harrison. He is honest.but—so is William Vander bilt. He is upright, but—so is many an English duke. He is shrewd, but—so is a Wall street banker. He is respectable, but —so is the high-salaried manager of many an Eastern insurance company. He is able, else he would not have been for many years the Western representa tive in Federal Courts of the most power ful corporations. But I want for Presi dent now in this contest with the mil lionaires a man whose honesty, shrewd ness and sympathies are enlisted in behalf of the wage-earner, in behalf of farmer and not in behalf of the so-called legal rights of thousands of factory lords and kings. I do not for one moment doubt Grover Cleveland's triumphant re-election. His message stripping bare the iniquity of protection was a bugle call, a war cry, that has stirred a generous people as never since Lincoln called for men to save the Union. Millions of Americans who love freedom, fraternity and equality are responding to his summons for help against the mighty, and the up-rising of a liberty-loving people is sublime.
