This is aot a contest among persons.
The humblest citizen in all the land,
when clad in the armor of a righteous
cause is stronger than all the whole
boats of error thai they can bring.
1 come to speak to you in defense of a
cause as boly as the cause of liberty.
the cause of humanity, (loud ap
plause) 1 shall object to briDgicg this
question clown to a level ot persons.
The individual is but an atom; be
born, he acts, he dies, but principles
are eternal, and this has been a contest
"Never before in the hiHtory of
this country has there been witnessed
ucb a contest as that through which
we have passed. Never before in the
history of American politics baa t
ereat issue been fought out as this is
sue has been, bv the voters themselves.
Ou the 4th of March ISa'j, a few
- Democrats most of them members of
Congress, issued an address to the
Democrats of the nation, asserting
that the money question was the para
mount issue of the hour; asserting
also the rieht of a majority of the
Democratic party to control the
position of the party on this para
mount issue; concluding with the re
quest that all believers in free coinaee
ot silver in tne Democratic pany snouiu
organize and take charge of and con
trol the policy of the Democratic party.
Three months later at Memphis an
organization was perfected and the
silver Democrats went forth openly
and boldly ana courageously proclaim
ing their belief and declaring that if
successful tbey would crystallize in a
platform the "declaration which they
bad made and then began the conflict
with a zeal approaching the zeal
which inspired the crusaders who fol
lowed Petsr the Hermit. Our silver
Democrats went forth from victory un
to victory until they are assembled
now not to discuss not to debate, but
to enter up the judgment rendered
by the plain people of this country.
"In this contest brother has been
arrayed against brother and father
aeai'nst father. The warmest ties of
love and acquaintance and associa
tion have been cast aside when they
refused to give expression to the sent
iments of those whom they would lead
and new leaders have sprung up to
give directions to this cause of truth.
(Cheers. 1 Thus has the contest been
waged and we have assembled here
under as binding and solemn instruc
tions as were ever fastened upon the
representatives of a people.
"We do not come as individuals.
Why. as individuals we might have
been glad to compliment the gentle
man from New lork. (Senator Hillj.
but we know that the people for whom
we speak would never be willing to
put him in a position where be could
thwart the will of the Democratic
party. (Cheers) I say it was not a
question of person : it was a question
of principle, and it is not with glad
ness, my friends that we find ourselves
brought into a conflict with those who
are now arrayed on the other side. The
gentleman who just preceded, (Gov
Kussell) spoke of the old state of
Masachussetts. Let me assure him
that cot one person in all this conven
tion entertains the least hostility to
the people of the state of Massachu
setts. (Applause. )
"But we stand here representing
people who are equal before the law
of the largest citizen in the state of
Massachusetts. (Applause.) When you
come before us, and tell us that we
shall disturb your business interests,
we reply that you have disturbed our
business interests by your course.
We say to you that you have made
too limited in its application the
defjniton of business man. The man
wh j is employed for wages is as much
a business man as his employer.
(Continued cheering. ) The atttorney
in a country town is as much a busi
ness man as the noiporation counsel
in a great metropolis. The merchant at
the cross roads store is as much a
business man as the merchant of New
lork . The farmer who goes forth in
the morning and toils all day, begins
in the spring and toils all summer,
and by the application of brain and
muscle to the natural resources of this
country, creates wealth, is as much a
business man asj the man who goes
upon the board of trade and bets upon
the price of grain."
"The miner who climbs a thousand
feet into the earth or climbs 2000 feet
upon the cliffs and brings forth from
their hiding place the precious metal
to be poured in the channels of trade
are as mueh business men as the few
financial magnates who in a back room
corner the money of the world.
"We come to speak for this broader
class of business men. Ah, my friends,
we sav, not one word against those
who live upon the Atlantic coast; but
those hardy pioneers who braved
all dancers of the wilderness who hare
muilfl the district blossom as the
rose those pioneers away out there
rareing their children near to na
ture's heart where they can niingie
their voices with the voices of the
hircls out there where they have
erected school houses fur the eduea
tion of their voune. and churches
where thev nraise their creabw, and
cemeteries" where sleep the ashes of
their dead are as deserving of the
consideration of this party as any peo
ple in this country.
"It is for these that we speak.
We do not come as agressors. Our
war is not a war of conquest. We
are fighting in the defence of our homes
our families and mieterity. We have
petitioned, and our petitions have
been scorned. We have entreated,
and our entreaties have been dis
regarded. We have begged, and they
have mocked, and our calamity came.
We beg no longer; we entreat no more;
we petition no more. We defy them!
i Great applause and confusion in
the silver delegations. )
"The gentleman from Wiscosin
has said he fears a Robetspierre. My
friend, in this land of the free you need
fear no tyrant who will spring up from
among tne people, vnai we neeo ie
an Andrew Jackson to Btand as Jack
son stood against the encroachments
of aggrandized wealth.
Thev tell us that this platform was
made to catch votes. We reply to
tbem that changing conditions make
w issues: that the principles upon
which rest democracy are as everlast
ing as the hills, but that they must
be applied to new conditions as they
arise. Conditions have arisen and
jre are attempting to meet those con
ditions. Thev teli us that the income
tax ought not to be brought in here :
that is a new idea. They criticize
us for our criticisms of the supreme
court of the Lnited states. My
friends, we have not criticised. We
have simply called attention to what
vou Know. it vnu want criticisms

"Tbev sav we passed an unconstitu
tional law. I deny it. 1 he income
tax was not unconstitutional w in n it
was passed, it was not unoonstitu
tional when it went before the supreme
court for the first time. It did not
become unconstitutional until one
judge changed his mind, ana we
cannot be expected to know when a
judge will change Bis mind. The in
come tax is a just law. It simply
intends to put the burden of govern
ment justly upon the backs of the
people. J am in favor of an income
tax. When I find a man who is not
willing to pav his share of the burden

national hank currency. It is true.
If you will read what Thomas liecton
paid you will hnd that be said that
in searching history he could find but
one parallel to Andrew Jackson. That
was Cicero, who destroyed the con
spiracies of Catalice and saved Koine.
He did fur Rome what Jackson die
when he destroyed the bank con

means to say that we cannot cfmnge

incr those who have loaned money tie
fore the chance was made I want to ask
him where, in law or in morals he can
find authority for not protecting the
debtors when the act of 137.'! was passed
but now insists that we must protect
the creditor. He says he also wants
to amend this law and provide that if
we fail to maintain a party within a
year that we will, then suspend the
coinage of silver. We reply that,
when we advocate a thing which we
believe will be successful we are not
compelled to raise a doubt as to our
own sincerity by trying to show what
we will do if we can. I ask him if lie
will apply his logic to us, why he does
not apply it to himself. He says that
he wants this country to try to secure
an international agreement. Why
doesn't he tell us what he is going
to do if they fail to secure an interna
tional agreement. There is more rea
son for him to do that than for us to
fail to maintain the party. They have
tried for 30 years for 30 years to
secure an international agreement.and
those are waiting for it most patiently
who don't wait at all.
"Now, friends, let me come to the
great paramount issue. If they ask
us here why it is that we say more
on the money question than we say
upon the taritT question, 1 reply thai
f protection has slain it tnoueanils.
the gold standard has slain its tens of
thousands. If they ask us why we
did not embody all these things in
our platform which we believe, we
renlv to them that wtien we nave re
stored the money of the constitution
all other necessary reforms will tie
piissible, and that " until that is don?
there is no reform that can be accom
plished. ( Cheers. )
"Why is it that within three
months such a change baa come over
the sentiments of this country? Three
months ago when it was confidently
asserted that those who helii ve in
the gold standard would frame our
platform and nominate our candidates,
even the advocates of the gold stand
ara did not think that we could elect
a president: but tbey had good reason
for the suspicion, because there is
si-arcely a state here to-day anting
for the gold standard that is not with
in the akisolute control of tbe repulili
can party. But note the change.
Mr. McKinley was nominated at .St.
Louis upon a platform tnat declared
for the maintenance of the gold stand
ard until it should be changed into
bimeatallism by an international
agreement. Mr. McKinley whs the

very people four months ago were open
and avowed advocates of the gold
standard and telling us that ue could
not legislate two metals together even
with all tbe world.
I want to suggest this truth that
if the gold standard is a good thing
we ought to declare in favor of its re
tention and not in favor of abandoning
it: and if the gold standard is a
had thinir, why should we wait until
some ttner nations are willing P'
help us let go? Here is the line of
battle. We care not i pon which issue
they force the fight. We are prepared
to meet them on either issue or on
both. If tbey tell us that tbe cold
standard is the standard of civiliza
tion, we reply to them that this, the
most enlightened of all the nations of
the earth, has never declared for a gold
standard and both the parties this
year are declaring against it. If the
gold standard is the standard of civili
zation, why, my friends, should we
not have it? So. if they come to
meet us on that, we can present the
history of our nation.
More than that, we can tell them
this that they will search the paces of
history in vain to find a sintrie instance
in which the common people of any
land have ever declared themselves
in favor of a gold standard. They
can find where tbe holders of fixed
investments have. Mr. Carlisle said
in ISTs that this was a struccle be
tween the idle holders of idle capital
and the struccling masses who pro
duce the wealth and pay the taxes of
the country; and, mv friends, it ir
simply a question that we shall de
cide upon which side shall the Dem
ocratic party fight uprn the side of
the idle holders of idle capital or upon
the side of the struggling masses?
That is the question that the party
must answer first, and then it must
be answered by each individual here
after. The sy mpathies of the Democratic
party, as deaerilied y the platform,
are or, the side of the strucciing
masses, who hae ever fieen the foun
dation of the Democratic parly. There
are two ideas of Government. There I
are those who believe that if you just j
legislate to make the well-to-do pros
perous their prosperity will leak
through on those below. The Demo
cratic idea bas been that if you legis
late to make the masses prosperous
their tirnsperity will find its way up
and through every class and rest
Vou rome to us and tell us that the
great cities are in favor of . the cold
standard. I tell you that tbe creat
cities rest upon these broad and fertile
prairies. Burn down your cities and
leave our farms, and your cities will
spring up acain as if by magic; but
destroy our farms, and tbe grass will
grow in the streets of every city in this
country. My friends, we shall declare
that this nation is able to legislate kn
its own people on eyery question with
out waiting for the aid or consent of
any other ration on earth. Upon
that issue we expect every single state
in this Union.
I shall not slander the fair state of
Masachusetts nor the state of Now
York by saying that when its citizens
are confronted with tbe proposition," Is
this nation able to attend to its own
busines?" I will not slander either
one hv saving that the people of
those states will declare i in potency as
a nation to attend to our own busi
ness. It is the issue of 1770 over agBin.
Our ancestors, when but 3,000,0(10 had
the courage to declare their political
ndependence of every other nation
upon earth. Shall we, their descend
ants when we have grown to i0,000, -
JO0, declare that we are lesa indepen
dent than our forefathers? No, my
friends, it will never be the judgment
of this people.
Tbdrefor. we care not upon what line
the battle is fought If they say
bimetallism is good, but we cannot
have it till some nation helps us, we
renlv that, instead of having a gold
