They Appear at Union Hall in Behalf of
Pompous Ponderosity Characterizes the
While Cunning: Eloquence Distinguishes
Eepeated Change of Heart Doesn't Change
Jim in the Least.
His Plea Por -Silver However was Mast
The two generals, Gen. Geo. and Gen.
Jim, appeared at Union Hall Monday
night. The former is the Democrotic
candidate for governor, and when intro.
duced by Capt.Steinhauser he laboriously
found his way through a lot of platitudes
of pompous ponderosity. He told his
auditors that the Democratic party was
born with the American revolution and
has never changed since that the best
party was the party which governed
least, and that we were already burdened
with too many laws. that the tariff was a
tax and that trusts and monopolies were
the outgrowth of a protective system.
He favored a double standard of money
believing that gold and silver should
stand side by side as basic metals. He
alluded to the patience of the Democrats
of this state and gloried in the persist
ence with which they had voted the tick
et in spite of defeat. They had been in
the wilderness now for thirty years, and
if they voted right this time they would
enter the promised land.
Gen. Baker was more interesting. As
a campaigner and stump-speaker he has
few equals, and so strong are his persua
sive powers that it makes but little dif
ference on what side be talks.
"Unjust taxation'' he began "is as old
as tyranny and as wicked as despostism."
He then cited history to show what re
volutionary efforts unjust taxation has
worked during all the ages, and wound
up with tbe unjustness of a tariff tax for
"A tariff for revenues is the only just
tax exclaimed the orator, and when you
go a hairs breadth beyond revenue you
enter the domain of thievery and rob
bery." I am a frre trader. I have been
so for many years and have never held
any adverse position to my present. The
other fellows have changed, but I have
Dot. They have changed, while I have
alwas stood on the roek of tariff reform
"where Selmon Chase paptized me."
The Gen. was a little mistaken here, for
we have known him to deliver some of
the finest protective tariff speeches this
state has ever heard.
He considered the Wilson Bill an ex
cellent measure and that part of it which
provides for an income tax he praised
particular. The^sugar schedule, he ad
mitted was wrong,but it was the work of
Benedict Arnolds, not of Democrats.
"We know those four Democratic sena
tors were traitors and we are not afraid
to call them such. But we propose to
make a little graveyard for them and
j. erect a little stone or board at the head
of their graves and say, Here lies four
Democratic traitors who died from the
ptison of protection."
His references to silver were eloquent
and we believe correct. He said: I am
a friend of free silv«ar I consider the
demonetization of silver by the act of
1873 as one/of the most unfortunate and
disastrous acts which ever occurred in
our economic history. The Republican
party are wholly responsible for that re
peal. This demonetization of silver
threw away one half the metallic curren
cy of the nation at one sweep. To draw
off half the blood in a man'sveins would
leave him in a weak and deplorable con
dition. Yet, that is what the act of 1873
did for the nations currency.Were I elec
ted to congress, I would do all in my
power to restore silver to its former p.
destal of honor and as a money of full
redemptive power, the same as it en
joyed before that repeal. I do not be
lieve that this country will ever fully
regain its former prosperity till this great
wrong shall be fully righted I do not be
lieve in a bi-metallism which will make
silver subordinate to gold. That is not
true bi-metallism, but simply a single
gold standard. It is deceptive to call
such subordination of silver by the name
of bi-metallism. It is not only a mis
nomer, but a fraud. I would have bi
metallism in fact, as adopted and main
tained by our fathers, making either a
full legal tender money with the risrht of
unlimited coinage, and thus restore the
parity so long successfully maintained
between the two metals. As to the ratio
between them, while there are many cog
ent reasons why the present ratio of 16
to should be retained, yet that might be
safely left to the discretion of congress.
But I am strongly inclined to the con
viction that the existing ratio should not
be disturbed. It will be remembered
that I took identically the same position
on this question four years age.

interests are not alike.
