I understand, Gentlemen of tho Con

this chair not as tho representative of
any one of tho candidates whoso names
will bo presented boforo you but by tho
common action of tho friends of all. My
selection, therefore, has no significance

we hope and believe, tho seventeenth
Governor of Pennsylvania (Great an

of our State, which was established in
1790. Wo think (and in this wo bolievo
when thoy goastroy by his veto. It Is
most Important then that tho pcoplo of

who, will bo a rallying' point around

Ynn know that within nnd beyond
Uio limits of our Sfalo, great complaint
has boon mado Inrccont yoars.and with
good reason, in "regard to "tho action of
our leglslatlvo bodies. Why has this
been so : why has tho moral tono of pub
lic life been so low at Harrls'burg ? Why
havo private, local and corporation blli3
by tho hundred been rolled out of "thoso
halls of legislation, at tho solicitation
of prlvato parties, to vox, plunder and
corrupt tho pcoplo? Why Is tho charac
ter of our Stato and of Its citizens low
ered In this manuor? It Is becausoyou
havo had an Incapable and unworthy
occupant of tho'Exccutivo Chamber, a
man around whom wholosomo and
honest opinion could not rally ; n man
who would notlntcrposo his constitu
tional power against bad nnd corrupt
legislation ; a man who, Instead of re
sisting ovll in tho government, yields
to It nnd becomes its instrument nnd
tho instrument of men whoso evil rep
utations aro known throughout tlio
Commonwealth. Is there n remedy for
this condition of things ? Yes, thcrols
an effectual rcmody which we feel con
fident will bo supplied by this Conven
