I know, too, that sometime in the future when voluble politicians speak and write of the beneficent effect of a protective tariff to the laboring men of the nation, they too will stop to ask how it happened that after an experience of more than thirty years under the most rigid protective laws a free people ever endured, the first breath of misfortune that came could cover the country with organized armies of destitute men striving to reach the seat of the government and lay before congress their helpless condition that they might beg of it for public assistance. Surely a system that was conceived in charity for laboring men, after a trial so long and so complete, should have left them sufficient of the fruits of their toil to tide them over a panic of a few short weeks without organized effort to bring the government to their aid. No, gentlemen, this mask of protection of American labor under which the eager recipients of tariff favors have organized their trusts and combines to Buck the life blood from the very veins and arteries of labor every where, has been torn by recent events until the man who refuses to look through it and see that it covers nothing but the bony fingers of greed, that have used it so long and so well, will deserve no sympathy if he becomes or remains the serf it has so largely helped to make of so many. And turning from the men who labor in the protected industries to that vastly greater body who cultivate our farms, operate our railways and conduct the innumerable classes of business that none are so brazen as to claim derive a direct benefit from protective laws, Democracy must ask them to stop long enough to read the lessons a few short months have crowded into the history of a country whose destinies they hold in their own hands and control by their own votes. They, too, must remember we are standing at the end of more than three 'decades of a most intense protective policy on the part of the government; that no change in this policy has yet been effected; that it is still in practical force. And what is the result? Trusts and combines on every hand; the fruits of labor token from the many and given to a few; millionaires counted by the thousands; homeless men by millions; rumblings of discontent from every quarter, but loudest and longest in the very centers of the most highly protected industries of the luud; strikes Bud lockouts everywhere; armies of idle men gathered in our cities and marching over the country, vaunting their destitu tion in the fuoeof the world with here and there the howl of the anarchist, the knife of the assassin and brand of the .. incendiary emphasizing with fire and blood a discontent that has become almost epidemic and threatens the stability of the government itself until the last resort of a nation, an appeal to the military arm for protection, has become a public necessity. purely there must be a cause for all this. Where is it to be found? Certainly not in any governmental policy for which the Democratic party is responsible, for in the whole period of agonerution it has been unable to subject any one of itB theories to a practical test. And equally certain it is that if these conditions are due in any degree or lo any extent to the acts of a political parly the responsibility for thorn must rest upon the shoulders of Unit parly whouo theories have been moulded into' laws, that for thirty odd years have controlled the policy of the government. May we not therefore well inquire whether we have not curried the theory of u paternal government that is to wnglo out ouo or uiuny brunches of business anc give them the aid of governmental pro teotiou, which simply means Ihut force of law it will take from one clan to give to another, up to the danger lino of experiment, and are wo not ulnnul) BulUoiontly wuraod that some change ii the political pqliuy of the government iu (jwJcoBBury if wo would preserve it fo jrenewtions to come. Af an individual I way rightly exprost my views on n matter of such grave importance to the party of which I am a member, and availing myself of this privilege I want to say that when the history of this administration is written I hope it will not contain the statement that the Democratic party of this union was incapable of keeping to any extent or in any degree 1he principal promise upon which it rode into power. Within the party councils I want the voice of crimination and recrimination hushed at once. I want gentlemen to realize that we live in a country of vast, of varied and sometimes conflicting interests that effect different localities in different ways; that many general laws must of necessity be the result of compromise; and I want the Democratic members of congress to agree upon the very best measure of tariff reform it is possible to pass and make it the law of the land without further delay. I want this because it is better than nothing and because it will be an honest effort on the-part of these members to carry ou as far as possible the pledge of their party as they understand it. If it does not come up to the requirement of the pledge as I read it I will not lay down my arms: I will not consider the matter settled; I will Bay frankly that my party has not been able to keep in all its parts and to its full extent one of the pledges it made upon which it was instrusted with power^and n my own way to the extent of the influence I am able to exert I will help to seep the wheels of reform in motion until all that has been promised is laithfully performed. This is my view of the duty of Democrats in this crisis >oth in and out of congress. MONETARY QUESTIONS. While the subject of tariff reform will remain the controling question of dispute between the two great parties for ;he present, there are others of a national iharacter from which public attention cannot and ought not to be divided. By an explicit resolution in its last national platform, the Democratic party s committed to "the use of both gold and silver as a standard money of the jountry," and to the "coinage of both without discrimination againet either," )ut it is expressly declared that "the dollar unit of both metals must be of equal intrinsic andexchangable value or >e adjusted through international agreement or by such safeguards of legisla- ion as will insure the parity of the two metals." To my own mind the unqualified language of the plank requires affirmative iction on the part of the representatives if the party by which it was adopted. There seems little probability that a mrity of the two metals on'any basis can established by interna- ional agreement, and it is a notorious act that the coinage of silver in all our minis has largely ceased while gold is >romptly coined as fast as it can be ob- ainod. There is, I believe, n well founded fear hat the free coinage of silver at the old atio of 1C to 1, without international agreement or safeguards by legislation, would destroy the parity of the two metals when coined into • money and lence violate both the letter and the ipirit of the pledge referred to. This fear may furnish u justifiable excuse for the neglect of the government ,o continue the coinage of silver until >roper safeguards to preserve the parity of the metals are provided by law, but n my judgment it furnishes no excuse for failure on the part of the Democratic majority in congress to adopt safeguards that will preserve such parity and under these the ruinutsof the union should be open to the free coinage of each without discrimination against either. It will not do for the Democrutic'party now listen to those who declare it im possible to adopt such safeguards and nonce neglect to undertake any measure looking to the coinage of both metals. Buch action would be the fulfillment of neither the letter nor the spirit of u most important plunk iu the party's platform. Honor, conscience and policy alike require the faithful keeping of the promise that was made. Upon some terms or other uuoh us prudence and good faith will suggest for the preservation of the purity of these metals when coined into money the mines should bo kept open to the free coinage of each, or the Democratic party will bo juHtly chargeable with the viola tion of its promises in this respect. THOU III,EB. There is another uubjeot whioh I uui glml to Buy IB not u politioul iauuo be Iwouu any of tho tfi'out parties of tl country, of uuoli yruvo iiuportunoe U tho wolfuro of the uution thut 1 Bhoul fool tliut I liud nogloctea the duty L u KIWI! oitliion if »n uu oooueiou like tlii I fuilod to ujieuk of it. I am mote willing to discuss it here ecause I know the tanks of the party or which I speak hns always been filled y the men whose true interests I am nxious to serve. I refer, as you will surmise, to the un- jrecedented troubles in labor circles luring the last few months. I concede to no man a more earnest lesire than my own for every legitimate advancement for the real interests of the manual laborers of the land. I was born nnd matured among them and their welfare has been a constant ob- ect ot the keenest of my desires during all the years of my natural life. I know however that of all the classes ,hat make up the aggregate of this nation they stand in greatest need of 'air and faithfully executed- laws; that without these they would be 'the most lelpless victims of a condition, if it ever comes in which society learns to ignore ;he law and defend its rights, real or im aginary, with brute force. I know, too, that every one of these men who is an adult citizen of the Jnited States is clothed with precisely ;he same power under the constitutions of the states and the nation to help mould and cause to be executed the aws of the land, that is possessed by the haughtiest millionaire that ever cast a vote, and I believe as irmly as I be- ieve in my existence that if their organizations are to be preserved and con- ,inue to be of the least practical benefit o their members they must see that hey neither violate the law themselves nor instigate, aid or abet others to do so. It is hardly necessary to add that with every loyal citizen of the land who s a loyal friend of its laborers I have >een shocked by the ' flagrant breaches if law that have characterized so many >f the recent labor strikes of the xmntry. I am still more amazed to know that within the circles of some ofthese unions re men who yet condemn the authorities, xitb state and national, for interposing he military arm of ench to put tin end ,o conditions that hod reached a com- ileted stage of anarchy and overthrown n some localities every semblance of aw and order. It these men are not bereft of reason; ! they realize that this government is orth defending; if they would not see ; tumble into fragments rather then ail to correct some real or fancied wrong o a few of their number, they must by bis time realize that "the strike" as inducted in many places in the recent ast is revolution, is anarchy, is the in- ipient stage of civil war, and if left un- rammelled by the military arm of the overnment it will pull down the very illars of the temple of our liberties and ury all in a common ruin. It is vain to assert that the scenes of ote, incendiarism and bloodshed we ave witnessed are not the work of mem ere of any^of the unions,but instead ore lat of the lawless element of the cities n which they have occurred. If this is literally true it cannot reeve the unions in questions of the re- ponsibility for conditions that thoir wn acts made possible, and which with- ut such acts would never have existed. STATE ISSUES. Never before, in my judgment, did the iitercets of the people of our state, both oral and material, more' imperatively emand a change in the administration ! its affairs than now. That no practical change is possible hile the Republican party remains in ower is so clearly demonstrated by the ction of the Republican members in lie last session of the legislature that o man is justified in adhering to that arty on these issues in the hope thut eeded reforms can be accomplished ,'hilo it remains in power. Our present legislation on the liquor uestion,for which Republicans alone are esponsiblo is little, if any, less than a lublio disgrace, that justly subjects us x> the ridicule of sensible men ot every hade of opinion. In equally solemn enactments of the upreme law making power of the com nonwealth we have first outlawed the ale ot intoxicating liquors as a beverage mder any circumstances and in all jlaces within the jurisdiction of the tute, and we have multiplied penalties uid lengthened the list of remedies for he enforcement ot this sweeping statute intil we have struined it wo have not >roken some of the most sucred guurun- .oos of personal rights thut the wisdom ot the ages has pronounced necessary 'or the protection of the individual in overy true government. And then for fear some one might doubt whether one enuotmont of this statute was sufficient to make it binding upon all we huve through the formal .locluratiou of u> subsequent legislature declared thut this law is in truth and in 'set what it purports to be, the law of ihe state unrepealed and unchanged. Having guarded this question eo cnre- 'ully that the most skeptical unbeliever can no longer doubt in looking at the (ace of the statute that our prohibitory law in all its parts is;still iu full forcejand effect, we have invented a scheme whereby any person high or low,white or black male or female, moral Jor; immoral, may by complying with certain conditions and paying a stipulated price fixed by the legislature for the privilege, openly and notoriously violate the law that is the law in every part ot the state, on every day in the year except Sundays, holidays and election days and we have named this new invention "mulct." We have made it broad enough and deep enough to cover the acts of the liquor seller, but the man whose property we confiscated, whose great plants were built, equipped and operated for years under laws we made and kept in force for a quarter of a century and which now stand idle, dismadtled and smokeless in nearly all cities of the state, are without the pale of its wonderful provisions. We may now sell intoxicating liquors for lawful purposes without money or reward and for unlawful purposes for a price fixed by statutory enactment, but we must not manufacture an article that enters into the commerce ot every nation of the earth, of which we ourselves yearly consume vast quantities for wholly legitimate purposes and the raw material for the production of which we produce upon the farms of Iowa in quantities greater than is produced in any other state of the union or in any other place of equal area in the civilized world. If lunacy in legislation ever reached a higher stage of development the fact is yet undiscovered. A PABTY OP EXTRAVAGANCE. Another question in the politics of the state will sometime force itself upon the attention of its people. The Republican party of Iowa has become a party of extravagance. It is heedless of the necessities of the people and reckless in the expenditure of their money. In a time of universal business depression, with the extraordinary demands upon the treasury and when individuals everywhere are compelled to practice rigid economy, it has increased our taxes to the extent of 82tlO,000 annually added a our expenses, and has lengthened a ong line ot needless drafts upon the treasury of the state. To make places for partisan friends it IBB without cause, without reason or necessity therefor, cut in twain at least one of the judicial districts of the state and needlessly [increased the number of udges therein, thereby adding to the expense of the people the additional cost of salaries and greater number of terms of court. In the management of our state institutions which absorb two-thirds of the entire revenues of the state and deplete the treasury to the extent of more than two and a half millions of dollars during each biennial term,to be filtered through the hands of political friends, it has become absolutely indifferent to the interests of those from whom this enormous sum is periodically collected. Possibly the plain people who pay the taxes and attend to their own business without worrying us to who shall fill the offices may sometime be persuaded to give this matter which so vitally effects their own interests more careful thought. It is at least the duty of the Democratic party to continue to labor for bet* ter government in state and nation alike; to be true to itself; true to its principles and loyal always to the best interests, the highest possible good of the people of whom it forms so conspicuous a part.

The advantages of using genuine white le«d for painting surfaces, eepeoi ally iron work, have been known for years, but an instance mentioned by Sir William Arrol will serve to impress the fact on tbe memory. Some. yean ago be purchased the materials of old Ham- meremith bridge for the purpose ot using a portion in erecting a temporary plant at one of bis large undertakings. Tbe iron work baa been in position sixty two years, and many of tbe parts, owing to inaccessibility, has not been painted since they were placed in position. Finding them in eo remarkable a state ot preservation Sir William Arrol bad some of tbe paint analyzed, when it was found to be genuine white lead. PETIT JCBT.
