recall Mr Chairman how fiercely how mercilessly the railroads of this country fought Bryan and the democratic party in these last campaigns They saw at a glance the purpose of the democratic party to demand of them just and fair rates and as the president so happily put it an equal chance for vmean and they triumphed or or caused the republican party to tri umph in 1896 and in 1900 But while we went down in defeat this great issue for which we fought and fellstill lives and rises with renew edstrength advocated by an unexpected champion Why did not the republican r platform contain some declaration in 1904 upon this issue Were the railroads too strong in that great convention We all know the president is a brave man and a strenuous man Why did he not call your republican national con ventions attention to it in that year Then you were standing pat upon existing legislation you feared the wrath of this great foe but I beg you to imagine the courage of the democracy of this country as it has written it in the three great cam paigns Applause on the demo cratic side This question has not burst upon the people like a meteor it has been a constant burning red light of danger in the political firma ment The democratic party saw it and quickly and fearlessly called at tention to it- CoMr Chairman how tsme does change conditions I What Bryan contended for in this regard was de nominated by every carping critic in the land as anarchism but in Roosevelt the same declaration is greeted as patriotism of the highest type- I come again and inquire what declaration the republican party made in its convention which nomi nated President Roosevelt Here you will read again in futile effort to discover a single word on this subject Therefore I ask Who is leading and who is following The IveltHrwearing ocracy weilding its trencha sword and bearing itf color lance Applause on the democratic side For history tells me- UKistory whose moving finger writes and having writ moves on nor all your piety nor all your wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line nor all your tears blot out one word of it that in three great contests the democracy was agitating this great question throughout the length and breadth of the republic bold fear lesfc and aggressive daring to invite the enmity of the railroads with their twelve billions of capital by declaring for equal protection for 80000000 of her people and In 1896 we beheld the unmatched and brilliant Bryan standing in the wil derness crying out to the people through his platform for this regulation by law for this control of these great arteries of commerce and I charge today that Roosevelt has taken this plank out of the democratic platform that bears the bloody stain of Bryans faithful feet and is holding it up to thiS congress as a panacea for existing woes Applause on the democratic side And I come now asking that you shall render unto Caesar the things that are Caesars We do not intend to desert our ground We are delighted if I may bft permitted to appropriate the presidents own vernacular with the aggression of such a bold and fear less leader as Theodore Roosevelt We welcome him to the headof the column and behind him the democ racywill walk with unfaltering step whether the band plays Dixie or Yankee Doodle1 Applause on the democratic side PRISONS INSTEAD OF SEASHORE RE SORTS Let these big violators of the inside of the penitentiary and ob serve is dissimilarity from the sea shore resorts and they will have some respect for the law 61 this land Let a picture be taken of one or two of them in stripes instead of in automobiles laughter and applause ba the democratic side and then sir gf l we will have the poor of the country telling us that the law is administered alike to every citizen Suppose you fine themwhats done They can raise the rate and let it be paid back by the people but when you put stripes on them they cannot 4 make the people take their place If a farmer breaks into one of their of fices and robes them of their money he has violated the law and ought to be punished yet without any cere mony and with very little discussion the stripes are placedupoa him but when these millionaires violate the law by confiscating virtually the products of his farm the fine is all you will impose upon them And it wont do Mr Chairmrn to say that if the penitentiary penalty is placed in this law it iis ineffectual because you cannot convict on account of the enormity of the penalty That is simply to say that you are dealing with a class of criminals so harden ed and conscienceless that if penalty is great they will add to their al ready violation of the law the great crime of prejury and shieid them selves from punishment but if the penalty is minimum its an induce ment to them not to resort to prejury to escape but to tell the truth and pay off the fine WELCOME ROOSEVELT INTO FOLD- I say Mr Chairman that we are glad to w jlcome the President to the Democratic platform Many good planks are in it and as he is now securely fixed in the presiden tial chair for the term for which he was elected no more to be a candi date as he himself has declared let him become the tribute of the poor let him wield the righteous sword of the common people I look forward to the time when he will send a message to Congress saying that he wants this House to reform the tariff and put all trustmade articles on the free list that he will go further and say that all articles manufac tured in this country that are pro tected by a tariff and sold to for eigners cheaper than to citizens of this country shall be placed upon Ithfree list that he will ask us to i byisaymg the fact is ascertained in any court of content jusisdiction that an articl- is trustized it shill not be sold out side of the State of its production and that he will take a teerless stand for the suppression of private monopolies I LONG CHERISHED HOPE All these planks are in the Dem ocratic platform We are willing t fellow him along these lines Le him send a message to this House saying that we ought to sro back to the pristine days when the immense fortunes of this country did not escape taxation when the tax gatherer visited the places of the rich as well as the hovels and cot tages of the poor and let him as us to rehabilitate the incometax law and place it upon the statute book and see if the Supreme Court with its change of personel has not changed its position upon this mst equitable of all ways to defray the burdens ot government Applause on the Democratic side We leose a subscription every week or twosometimes two or three In a week and as far as we are able to tell it makes no diffr ence in our bank account We cannot I please everybody and we have tried to do We pity the man for being a fool who stops his subscrip tion under the impression that our failure will soon be announced We t have all the subscription we care for and it

soldiers at do homo have neither wives nor religion and Eden without either or both is hell Why Dinah I would rather be In mv grave than to be cooped in a big home with two thousand nine hundred and uiuotvnine other men and not a woman to keep things in order De men dey smoke do offensive weed chaw tobacco and spit de nasty juice on do floor and has things topsy turvy Dom soldiers is not happy Uncle Sam feels wader obligations to dem because dey served their country so faithfully and fought for our freedom but its a pocr way to show favors by shutting men up right noder de shadow of a no licensed saloon and pension dem to live in idle ness By so doing Uncle Sam makes drunkards demoralizes and encourages idleness De whole thing is contrary to Gods way and when Uncle Sam or any body else works against de Almighty he is laying de foundation for misery woe sorrow and ruin Uncle Sam not only sells whisky himself but licenses others to do it It is enough for him to ruin mon much legs to sell others de privilege to do de same Jesus saTe A house divided against itself cannot stand When Uncle Sam sells whisky and sells others de privilege of selling also he is divided against himself Whisky makes crimi nals Uncle Sam makes laws to pre vent crime wad decrease criminals and den opens de saloon and licenses others to dc de same and thus works against his own self and de interest ot de home dei church and do sohool De foundations of America rest on four pillars do homo de school de church of Jesus Ohrist and good Roy ernment Do saloon is de hot bed of fontmpillars on which rests dls great and pros perous nation De saloon breeds an archy lawlessness and many ungodly deeds and when Uncle Sam sells whisk istdestroying de pillars upon which rests dis government So as it now is it is a jhouse divide against itself and must jfall unless unless do saloon is abolished and dem now In greater bondage is f freed To be continued Presidential Inauguration Rates The Nashville
