T bid my fellow-citizens of Michigan and Pennsylvania warm welcome to my city and hnme. The best thing In this v.-orld next to liberty la labor, and the r-cst th'lnff for labor Is an opportunity to work. "This Is the opportunity for which we arc all striving this year and which we hope, through a chanso o£ policy In the administration of the government of the United States, to ';njoj- to a larger desroe than we have done in the past 3V6 years. What we want, more than anything else, in order to bring this opportunity to labor, is a restoration of confidence. With conildcnce shuken, money -s(;el;s Its hldins place und sees out of the channels of the business and legitimate investment and away from farming, manufacturing and mining enterprises."Now, the republican.party hellc-vCE that It'Is the duty of the government, first, to raise enough money to run the covcrn- nient. Wo don't want any deficiencies in the public treasury, .'ind if wo have no dollciency we will have no debts,.and If we have no debt* we will have no bonds, and when we have no deficiencies everybody will have nsntlcience in the solvency of the treasury of thu United.

Then, my lullow-citlzuns, we not only bellovo In raisins enough money to run the government,' but we believe in having a tariff upon foreign * competing products high enough to protect Arr.crlcr.n IVior nr.d American manufacturers. Now, when w« have once accomplished that, we proposa to continue the g-ood money we have In thia country [applause]. AVe do rot want any.short dollars any more than we want llsnt weights.

I wish every man in this country might read the first platform that the republican party ever made as a national party In 1S5IV In the city of Philadelphia. I wish every young man mlsht read it, and 1 wish every old republican mijrht look up the record and recall It. It reads ,to-day moro like Inspired prophecy than the declaration of a political organization.. It declared for the unity of tho states and the indissolu- bllity of the American union: It declared for free homes, for free lands, for free speech and it declared for. a protective tariff. It decreed that the two oceans' should be united by rail, the Atlantic and Pacific, and every promise that this great platform made has been kept. How glorl panied It.
