Dnwcft Talks Interestingly ot the Marquette Club Ilunquet In Chicago. A Leader representative called upon Mr. R. C. Dawes, who attended tho Lincoln Day Uanquet of the Marquette Club in Chicago. Mr. Dawes is a staunch McKinley roan and talked freely of the banquet and the magni ficent ovation tendered tho Uuekeye ex-Governor. Asked, "What is tho Marquette Club, and what was tho significance of Mc Klnley's presence as tho orator of the occasion?" ho said: "Tho Marquette Club of Chicago is a Republican organization and the largest Republi can club in Chicago. The banquet given by them annually on Lincoln's birthday is, therefore, distinctly a gathering of Republicans. Tho recent banquet was the tenth observance of this day. Benjamin Harrison address ed this club at the banquet preceding the Convention ofl8S0 and his speech on that occasion doubtless preparpd the way for his candidacy and supplied the preface tj his inaugural address. "Gov. McKinley was invited by the Marquette Club more than a year atjo, to respond to the toast "Abraham Lin coln to bo given Feb. 12th., 1S90. No special political' significance was at tached to tho invitation thus extended J.0 Gov. McKinley, becauso ho was a prominent Republican, and in the judgment of the Marquctto Club well fitted to respond to the toast "Abraham Lincoln", ("the Man of the People"). "The surprising' growth of the Mc Kinley support among the lanlt and file of the party throughout the middle and western states, and the almost un precedented enthusiasm manifested at this great gathering of representative Republicans, for the candidacy of Mc Kinley, have, however, led people to attach importance to this occasion, as indicating the trend of popular feeling within the Republican party. , "McKinley's aadress, by reason of its fearless and candid expressions of his convictions on all great issues, has also attracted wide attention." "What about the banquet in detail?" "The banquet was baid to be tho largest course dinner ever served in Chicago, over one thousand people sat at the tables, and more than fifteen hundred stalwart Republicans listened to tho addresses. These men represent ed the Republicans of their sections. They came from Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska and other western states. The occasion was a patriotic one and tho Marquette Club endeavored to prevent tho assembly from declaring a preference among the aspirants for the nomination for President A motion to appoint a committee on re solutions was promptly ruled out of order, but it'was impossible to sup press the immense enthusiasm for Mc Kinley. I doubt if Governor McKinley who lias received many ovations, ever witnessed greater enthusiasm of sup port than was manifested by the guests and members of the Marquette Club lust week in Chicago. His entrance to the room was greeted by an outburst of cheers and applause that beggars description. This furor of enthusiasm was echoed from the streets, whero a largo gathering of McKinley club braved tho blizzard and stood in four teen Inches of snow, to do honor to the man from Ohio. During tho few moments of his absence? taken to up? pear before these men, who were out in the cold tho banquetters indulged in patriotic songs and upon his return, again and again tho cheers broke out and would not be stilled un til McKinley arose to make his address. Speakers who preceded htm were heard with impatience, but McKinley's voice, though ho did not strain it, wns heard by every man in tho room." "What were some of tho notable ut terances of tho speech?" "Tho nddress has been widely pub lished and generally read. It may be divided into two parts, tho first being devoted to a portrayal of Lincoln's churacter and an estimate of his work, u' Becond tQ tl10 Prcsont attitude of Uncoil party. The first Wn per- haps tlio most valuable, but the second -....,, ttr,,et,, moro intorcst lust now. Few men will crltlciso tho ilrst portion ot tlio nuiiress. Gov. Oglcsby, nerBonai friend of Lincoln, and the , - . war governor ot Illinois, praised it in tno highest terms. Tlio luttor part of tho address certainly commends Itself to Hepubllcans. Tho Governor read from an address mado by Lincoln In 1843 on tho tariff question. The coun try nt that time faced an emergency; for several years tho revenues of the government had been unequal to tho expenditures and consequently loan upon loan had been made, and a Na tional debt crented, with a rapidity which Lincoln declared to bo fearful to contemplate? and only reasonably Mc asif Hvinir present, not for tho forgotten past, and overy sentenco that ho 'quoted from the -address made more than fifty years ago, was received with great applause by men-who.felt themselves to bo face to face with a similar emergency tbday. Ilrlnging Lincoln "up to date," McKinley ue- jelared that tho platform of 1S00 might well reaffirm tho Lincoln platform of 1SC0 on the suqjcct of ptotcction. It is as follows: "Resolved, that the history of the nation during the last four years has fully established the propriety and necessity of tho organization and per petuation of tho Republican party and the causes which called it into exist ence, are permanent in their nature and now more than ever before, de mand its peaceful and constitutional triumph. "Resolved, that while providing rev enue for the support of tho general government, by duties on imports, sound policy requires such an adjust ment of these imports as to encourage the industrial interests of tlio whole country, and we contend that policy of national exchanges which secures to the working man liberal wages, to ag riculture, rennmerative prices, to me chanics and manufacturers, adequate reward for their skill, labor and enter prise, and to the nation, commercial prosperity and independence." "Upon the money question McKinley declaicd that the Repulican party would as soon think of lowering the flair of our country a3 to contemplate with patience or without protest and opposition, any attempt to degrade or corrupt '.he medium of exchanges among our people." lie also said "that the Republican party proposes to make tho campaign next year upon its own ground ,not up on the ground of its opponents. The sporadic outbursts of patriotic favor for rights in foreign countries should not divert from the main question that party which for "forty years h.is steadfastly maintained those rights at homo and abroad." Nor should any side issue upon which a hue and cry may bo raised obscure the issue upon wliich the Democratic party has been wrecked. "Throughout the entire nddress tho audience manifested their approval, but especially when Lincoln was com nfended for listening to the voice of the people and accepting their guid ance, the response was instantaneous and continued; the feeling among Mc- Kinlev's listeners bcinir that the voice of the peoplo in .publican ranks to- day calls upon him to lead in the com ing fight. The sentiment quoted, "a profound common sense is the highest genius of statesmanship" also elicted hearty and immediate applause, for McKinley is regarded as the apostle of common hense. "The dramatic incident of tho even ing was furnished by the presence of tho venerable Richard J. Oglesby, the war governbr of Illinois, aqd tho per sonal friend of Lincoln. After the last speech on the program had been made, the audience would not disperse until this man, who for many years led the Republican party in his state, had re sponded to the call. "Uncle Dick" us he is affectionatuly called, is now ap proaching his eightieth year. He is a man of commanding presence and his firm and kindly face Is a true index of a strong and exalted character. His response to the call showed him to be an "old man eloquent" His diction was as strong and clear as it ever could have been, the continuity of his address was unbroken and the un quenchable fire of his eloquence burned as brightly as of yore. His reference to the early hardships and sufferings of Lincoln were touching in tlio ex treme, and nothing could be more in spiring than his comments on Lincoln's achievements. Old Undo Dick, how ever, does not live in tho past and not one of tho speakers of, tho, evening spoke mora clearly tho sentiments of that audience on questions pf today than did the old war horse when lie was once aroused." "What seemed to bo the prevailing opinion nmong those present as to Mc Kinley's chances?" "Naturally being largely his friends they thought his chances are growing brighter. The feeling seems to bo that in many sections McKinley has won the support of the entire party both the managers and the rank and file; In other sections of tho west, especially where tho managers are not friendly to McKinley, thero appears to be a strong sentiment amoDf tho people for him. No ono doubts that this sentiment is growing rapidly. The people admire him for his personal qualities, but sup .to bo expected in time oMvar.' iKlnley said thathis. words Iread wrlttetrror tho port him moro earnestly because he is the best exponent of thu. Republican idea. Tho feeling seems to bo growing that now is tho tlmo to fiht to n. standstill for protection and reciprocity and to establish them tts tho unaller' ablo policy of our nation." McKlulry m the Turin". Ks-Gov. McKinloy's statement of his position on the tariff Is franlt and plain, and tho country can easily understand it. Ho bulieyes in protection .beciuso It is an American policy, essential to our prosperity and advantageous to nil classes of citizens. Tho Republican party won Its first national victory with a protective planli in its platform, and tho general declaration then madd upon the subject' Is still Rood onotiglf, ,lr.ho says, for all practical purposes iincp that..timc,.tho',d.octrine 'bt.&'HA- ..' . i' -t-! '.,j--ia jusMngJarjfftt(esJas.ipqnaipjro vlde,mljiclentf r.qvqnup. fftr tUfBupnprtj if tho Jao.vernment, Mtt .also, tOjj en courage tho development ofjqcluptrial, interests nnd secure liberal wages to tho workingmen has been abundantly justified by icsults; and tho argument for its continuance rests upon accom plished facts. Our situation with re-" gurd to other nations is such that w'e can not yet successfully compete with them, in many forms of industry and enterprise, and it is our right ns well ns our duty to overcomo these draw- bwsks with tho kind of a tariff thut equalises conditions and gives domes tic labor and capital a fair chance. That is what protection means, und McKinley is right in saying that it is a firmly established principle of the Re publican party. "We aro not nbw contending," he goes on to say, "for any particular tariff law, or laws, or for any special schedules or rates, but for the great principle the American protective policy the temporary overthrow of which has brought distress and ruin to every part of our beloved country." He does not undertake to predict what tho next Republican tariff bill will provide, so far as details are concerned. "I can not tell you what tho rates will be," he says, "but they will measure tho difference between American and Eu ropean conditions," which is to say that they will guard our markets against invasions to the injury of our laborers and our sources of production and prosperity. The adjustment of ten iff duties is at all times a complicat ed task, in, which existing circum stances have to be carefully considered, and different rules have to bo applied to different features of the case. It is not at all likely that if McKinley were framing another tariff bill to-day he would strictly follow the lines of the one that bears his name. Ho says as much in stating that he can not tell what the rates will be when the Re publicans resume control of tho Gov ernment. That is a question to bo de termined at the time of taking action upon the subject. Some duties will be raised, and some will be lowered, it is likeh, as shall then seem to be most conducive to tho general wclfaie, and most consistent with the gcneial idea of protection; and the next President will be a man fully committed to such a policy, no matter what State ho hails from.
