unco, who listened with groat interest to
Senator Schurz, who had been invited to
this city by a largo number of prominent
ucrmans ;or tho purposo 01 giving incm
his views on the great politicnl topics of
tlio day. Mr. Prussing In introducing
tho spuakor. remarked that if tho Gormans
of this country provo themselves worthy of
such a roprcecntntivo, mo ideal 01 n repub
lic will bo brought much ncaror to us.
Senator Schurz spoko in tho Gorman
langungo, nnd in his opening remarks
gavo tho Germans of thin county tho cred
it of sympathizing with him in his mo
tives and position, nnd promised that ho
would givo thorn his vlows without reserve,
as was tho duty of those who exorcised any
control upon public opinion.
It was claimed that a few rostlcss agita
tors wero tho catiso of confusion now exist
ing among political parties, nnd yet no ro
forms could bo successfully carried
through without agitation. Tho present
hour presented a new order of things,
with now problems, now dangers and now
duties, unprovided for in "tho old pro
grammes of politicnl parties.

Tho government of to-day has grown be

enco in political concorns, while tho power
wielded by monoy frenuontly tries, and
often succeeds in controlling tho execu
tive, legislation and courts of justice, and
partisan organizations wero used to fur
ther tho individual interests of politicians.
Tho speaker's rulo in considering impor
tant quostions was to do so outsido of all
political connections so ns not to bo biased
by personal or party interests. Tho inter
ests of tho country demand that tho quos
tions irrowlnir out of tho war embodied In
tho thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments to tho constitution of thu
United States should bo nceontcd by nil
political parties as equal civil and politi
cal rights, and it is tho only theory consis
tent Willi tlio maintenance ot lreo labor.
PREJUDICES TO HE OVERCOME.
Tlio prejudices of persons avorso to tho
amendments will havo to bo overcome by
patriotic men, firmly upholding the legiti
mate results of tho "war, und our southern
people must bo gradually cut loose from
thu pnst and painful memories as well
their peculiar desires und aspirations and
their thoughts, directed to tlioso Interests
which wo liavo in common. To this end
nothing is morn desirable or necessary
than thu removal of political disabilities
X OK.VEllAI, AMNESTY.
Tho speaker considered it onoof tho
most serious blunders of tho Republican
party that this amnesty was not granted
long ago, and tho arguments combating
tho granting 'of such amnesty wero senti
mental ones.' In a republic whore tho
whole political organization of society is
based on tho univcrsaljty of suffrage

ORIOIN OF THE li. K. HILL.
It has been said that tho Ku-kliix bill
was brougni lorwnru in congress not
morolvfor tho purposo of guppresslntf
disorder and violence, but of enabling tho
Republican party 10 maintain or rosumo
its ascendancy, and especially' tho presi
dent to secure for himself tho electoral
oto of tho bouthorn Slates by tho macbin-,
cry or law. n is possiuio nisi soino
uncrupulous politicians havo such nn ob
lect In view, but thoy, however, wanted
and proposed a law much more swooping
than this. Hut it is my dcllborato convic
tion, based on personal observation, that a
majority of thoso who voted lor tho bill,
had no other object than to afford protec
tion to porsons In tho South who seemed
to bo helplessly oxposod to poriocutlon nnd
outrage, nnd many of them voted for tho
bill with hemauon and regret. I don t
want to Justify their vote or to excuse
anvbodv. but to bo lust, lam honestly
convlncod that nothing has dono moro to
kcon alivo tho spirit from which Ku-kluk
outrages procood, than tho acrimonious
war that wns wagod on tho reconstruction
measures and constitutional amendments.
and tho studious encourogemont that was
given to tho liopo that thcio thlncs would
bo swept away again, if only tho Demo
cratic party should como into power.
HIS HONISr CONVICTIONS.
I am furthermoro convinced that a lame
majority of tho Republican party, North
and South, are in favor of a .liberal, gener
ous and strictly constitutional policy, and
that the demagogues nnd schemors among
tho leaders of that party would havo Leon
nuoriy impotent nau not tuo lawless cle
ment In tho South and tho blind re-actioa-
Ists uvcrywhero, most industriously fur

Snn Domingo would inevitably load to tho
annoxntlon of tho American tropics down
to'tho Isthmus of Dnricn. This would
givo tis a population of tho Lntin-Indo-
Arncnn mixturo which has no notions in

no prospect ol successiui assimilation with
our political system,
A o would cain countries beautiful in
deed, but countries whoso possession would
be tho.sourco of incalculable difficulties
such as military government, corruption
and demoralization ot every kind.
Speaking of tho orders given by tho
president to our naval squadron in tho
West Initios to protect llacz, tho chief of
the ropublic of San Domingo. IfBacz was
interfered with by any orio, Senator Scborz
said ; Tho powor to involvo tho country
in war is n powor of tremendous responsi
bility. It cannot be circumscribed too
carefully, nortOo conscientiously guarded
against. When this power was taken frdm
tho excutivo and conildcd to the legisla
tive brunch of thn government, it wai one
of tho most important chains In the theories
of constitutional government. It was
essentially a Republican prnss , rvii
which wo jrul ruiiv i emcmbor tho fathers
of our constitution.
RELATIONS WITH GRANT.
I havo been soverly censured and attack
ed for my attitude in this affair. That
cannot touch me. Rut when a respectable
republican journal summons Mr. Sumner
nnd roysolf to compromise our, personal
differences with tho prcsidont for the sako
of tho public Interest, it deser ved nii ans
wer. I cannot understand this viow ot
public affairs'. I know of no porsoqal dif
forencos that could influenco 'my political
nttotudo. My personal relations with the
prisident woro never olhor than friendly,
I complain of nothimr. and Wero H other-

Strict party discipline undormlnoa tho
moral fcoling and conscientiousness in a
much moro subtlo way. It commonces to
disguise or to conceal tho truth and to deal
In fiction according to party interest, and
it requires not only a love of truth, but it

a cnroful conscientious maintenance of
constitutional limitation of its power, and
f till greater must bo oar caution in view
of tho colonal accumulation of capital in
tho hands of groat corporations, railroad

selves as monopolies, continually growing
strongor, and which already exert a for
