Democratic Endorsement for Gov. Peabody. The Brooklin Eagle is one of the leading democratic papers of New York, and it is enthusiastically and energetically supporting Judge Par ker for the presidency. But Mr. St. Clair McKelway, its editor, believes in law and order. He is a man of exceptional ability, and this in con nection with the fact that he and his paper are strongly supporting J udge Parker, makes the following editor ial, whioh we take from the Eagle of Sept. IP, especially interesting. “a SPEECH UNriT TO BE MADE. “The Eagle published Bonrke Cockran’s speech in full ou Sunday. That much was due to news. The Eagle gave to the speech not only full publication, but prominent place ment. That was dne to the magni tude of the meeting. The Eagle made no comment upon the speech when it published it, bat cannot withhold candid comment from it to day with justice to its readers or to tself. As much of the speech as con demned the couduct of the governor of (Colorado, against mobs, which claimed to act as labor orgauiza - tious, should not have been deliver ed aud should be pointedly con demned by every law abiding news paper. The mobs were made op of murderers, maimers, terrorizes and outlaws. As many as 21 murders, and twice as mauy maimings were scored against them. Arson and terrorism further decorated the con duct of these organized outlaws. They threw down law. They sacri liced life. They wounded whom they could not kill, and they follow ed such performances, congenial to them, with dynamite and the torch. What they did was iufamous. The condition which they brought about was intolerable. They made war, with the worst atrocities, on govern ment, on property and on life “What was done against them by the state government of Colorado, either in its judicial ox in its military capacity, was rightly done, bravely done, landably done, sternly done, admirably well done. We hope that the doing of it will be approved by the people of Colorado. It will be approved by them, if they love liber ry, respect human and natural rights It will be approved, if the punish ment of murderers is to be preferred to the coronation of systematized crime. “It should be incredible that even Bonrke Cockran should attack the action and misrepresent the record of the governor and the government of Colorado in this matter. But be ing not incredible, because he did so, his condemnation of it should , itself be condemned, and the injury i which, without rebuke of him would OrFXCXJLIi ITEUTSPAPER OF FXZOZXI 3ZXZ& COVITTT LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 5, 1904. ensue, to those whom he professed to advocate should be repaired as far as it can be, as explicitly, as earnestly and as soon as possible. “From much that Bourke Cockran aaid about free trade and a glorifioa tiou of boycotts, from much that he aaid ou collateral subjects, the Esgle differs, but those are matters of mere opinion, however unwise, pre mature or over dogmatic Bourke Gockran's opinions on them may be. They can be let pass. The things which we have detailed and dencunc ed. were immoral, incendiary and scandalous. We can imagine noth ing more hnrtful than those things to the cause which Bourke Cockran would, or would affect to, favor. As that cause is sincerety supported by the Eagle, this paper feels bound to note and to denounce the injury to that cause which Bourke Cockran, wittingly or unwittingly, has sought to inflict upon it. His was a speech, in the respects set forth, nnfit to be made.” This is exactly right and ws com mend it to the consideration of all Colorado democrats who, following in the footsteps of Bonrke Cockran, are open to the condemnation which the Eagle brings against him. The speeches of democrats, and particu larly of those who live in Colorado, that denounce Gov. Peabody, should never be delivered. It is a disgrace to auy Colorado mau to condemn a governor who establishes order and enforces the laws against those who resort to intimidation, arson, murder aDd innumerable other crimes to pre vent men from working, because they do uot belong to their organization It is treason to the state aud should be denounced by every law-abiding citizen in the land.—Denver Repub lican. To Young Men. Out of the musty files of old polit cal literature has been dug up a gem from the eloquent tongue of Garfield that is even more applicable today than in 1879 when he was in the thick of the great fight for honest money. It is the best advice that could be possibly given to the thou sands of young men who will cast their first presidential vote this year. We wish we had space to publish the entire speech but the following will interest all young men who have studied onr political and finan cial history. “Now I tell yon, young man, don’t vote the republican ticket just be cause your father votes it. Don’t vote tho democratic ticket even if he does vote it. But let me give you this one word of advice, as you are about to pitch yoor tent in qpe of the great political camps. Your life ia full an J buoyant with hope now, and I beg you, when you pitch your tent, pitch it among the living and uot among the dead. If you are at all incliued to pitch it among the democratic people aud with that party, let me go with you for a moment while f we survey the ground whore I hope you will not shortly lie. It ia a place, young man, for you to pat your young life into. It is to me [ar more like a graveyard camp for the living. Look at it! It is billowed all over with the graves of dead is sues, of buried opinions, of exploded theories, of disgraced dootriuos. Yon cannot live in comfort in such a place.” * * • * • [Just the same today only they have exhumed the old disgraced doc trines and the voters have buried them ouce more. J “Oh, young man, come out of that! That is uo place iu which to put your young life. Come out, and come over into this camp of liberty, of law, of order, of justice, of freedom, of all that is glorious under these night stars. “Is there any death here in onr camp!* Yes! Yes! Three hundred aud fifty thousand soldiers, the nob! est baud that ever trod the earth, died to make this camp a camp of glory and of liberty forever. But there are no dead issues here. There are no dead ideas here.” Contrast and Results. Senator Fairbanks asks whether we are to go forward or go back. President Gartield asked the }oung men whether they wanted to walk in the light of hope and confidence or prowl about in a graveyard. Both are pertinent questions for young men iu this campaign. The republican party has a record for doing things. The principal com plaint of the opposition is because this party has done things, even though they were things which men of all parties, even democrats, have been saying ought to be done. They now admit that the gold staudard has been irrevocably fixed by law, that they cannot change the tariff however much they might desire to do so, that the Panama canal must be built, that the trusts have been curbed, and that we have the Philip pines and must keep them for a time. With the exception of four years, from 1893 to 1897, the republican party has directed the policy of the government and under that policy there has been progress and prosper ity, here more abundant than any where else iu the world. From 1861 to 1893, notwithstanding the great est civil war iu the world’s history, our prosperity was phenomenal. Our wealth increased from $16,000,000- (N)0 in 1860 to 177,000,000,000 in 1890; our manufactured products from $1,800,000,000 to *9,300,000,- 000. The prosperity and progress of the United States attracted mil lions of people from other countries, who came to join in the benefits of this new and better life. Slave la bor was abolished, free labor receiv ed the highest wages ever paid, aud iu money which was at a premium in every other country. We marched forward in confidence aud hope for the future. But in 1892 the people at the polls committed the government to the care of the democratic party, not withstanding the pledge of that party to undo the things that bad been done aud by so undoiug, give us the markets of the world. That party kept the first part of its pledge. It undid prosperity and iudustria enterprise, but it did not give us eitber the markets of the world or allow us to retain our own market. Its theories were old and out of date. It had dug iu the graveyard of its buried past and brought forth theor ies that had been discarded as im practicable and worthless. But it tried again the old theory of free trade and the American people be cume idle while the people of Europe prospered at our expense. We had four years more of paraly sis due to the turuing backward by that party, aud when the next op portunity came for the people to order a change they elected William McKinley, the prophet of protection and prosperity for their Chief Mag istrate. The republican party re stored the politics that had made the o hintry great, aud from the day of that election confidence retorned, aud business reeilmed There was work and wages for all, and wages again increased until iu 1903 they wore higher than ever before, and earnings higher by 50 per cent than in 1894. In eight years we have wiped out all but the memory of the democrat ic disasters, Shall we continue to move forward iu the sunlight of hope and prosperity or agaiu prowl about in the graveyard of buried issues trying to revive them and see if after resurrection they will not prove more servicable? —Trinidad Chronicle-News.
