Their Voices at Uie New Yerk City K.itllica
On the occasion of tlic great Democratic
ratification meeting in New Yeik, en Wed
nesday evening, lien. Samuel J. Tilden
upon taking the chair said :
" I thank you, my fellow citizens, for
the cordiality of this gieeting. I have
come down this evening from my country
home te join with you in expressing and
declaring the purpose of the Democracy of
the city of Xcw Yerk te sustain the nomi

applause. I have come under the stipu
lation with your committee that, in conse
quence of my hoarseness of voice, I should

vast audience. AVhat I htve te say will

Reform is necessary te remove abuses
which have grown up during twenty years
of continuous power, prolific of false prin

partv, stifling its conscience, has made it
self "responsible for the intrusion, under
color of law, into the Chief magistracy of
our gieat country of fifty millions of peo
ple, of a man who was net elected by the
people. Thunders of applause, and cries
of " That's it,' " That's a fact V Un
less condemned by the people and signally
condemned, it will subvert the elective
system of government of which we are
se proud, and substitute in its place the
rule of a dynasty of officeholders holding
ever against the will of the people. Ap
plause. The complete overthrew of the
Republican party at the election in 1880,
wil! be retributive judgment ; it will pre
vent the repetition hereafter of the crime
of 1870 against the sovereignty of the peo
ple. Applause. Congratulating you

ulate you also upon the auspicious preni-i-e
eLJsttcecss which 1 .-co in every quarter,
I proceed te the order of business of the
S.inmel J. i:andiill' Speech.
The time approaches when nearly fifty
millions of people will be called upon te
decide into whose hands they shall trust
the reins of government. Judging by the
recent past it is the supieme moment
when every effort should be made te
recall administration te sound principles
and safe action by honest ways and just
Fellow citizens, we enter upon the cam
paign with the best candidates and the
best platform. Our presidential candidate
Winlield Scott Hancock, is without fear
and without reproach.'' Scandal has
sought in vain for the least stain upon his
escutcheon. J lis renowned deeds in peace
and in war, and the scrupulous heuesty
and justice with which he has discharged
every trust confided te him. aie the rich
heritage of our country's history. He
stands upon a platform of piinuiples. Its
declarations are the accepted principles en
which constitutional government must
stand. It responds te the rightful de
mands of a long-suffering people. The
candidates are worthy of the platform, and
the platform is worthy of the candidates.
Beth allbrd encouragement and geed will

vate one section by the ruin of another, but
declare concord and justice te all alike.
Ne nation can be prosperous and happy
wheic sectional hate jmhI discoid aie de
liberately and wickedly alieniplcd. All
stand as peers before the Uw, ami the
prespctity of each is the prespeiiiy of all.
Hew strong is the contrast when com
pared with the declarations and purposes
of our opponents. Their record is tins ab
The public credit is the very es-tcnee of
the general welfare. The public debt is
a sacred obligation which must be paid te
the last dollar.
Can any sane nun believe that the hcie
who shed his lire's bleed at Gettysburg
and elsewhere, in defence of the Union,
would for an instant endanger the public
faith by impairing the public credit, which
is the life bleed of our prosperity as a
country. The dangers which the.itcti the
stability of our free lrevcrnment come
from ether sources. Coutraliz.itien of i
power, subjugation of stale .se vet eighty, j
control of the elective franchise shameless
extravagance, and reckless maladministra maladministra
teon of every description in all dcpait
ments of government during the long
Icascef power which has been allowed te
the Republican party, are the leal dangeis
which threaten us.
It was the Democratic p.uty, as tepre
tuntcd in the Heuse of Itepiesentativcs,
which made the iirst successful stiuggle,
since the close of the war, in favor of a ic
trenchincnt of the public expenses, and
against the raising of any revenue except
what was actually required for the public
needs. It made easy the straight path te
a lesumptien of specie i.n mentb. it gave i
vitality te our cicdil, and created :i system
of funding our public debt at lower rate
or interest. If this retrenchment and econ
omy are continued, the remainder of our
public debt can, under a Democratic ad
ministration, be funded at tluec per cent.
Englaud borrows money at three per cent.,
with no purpes3 ever te pay the principal ;
we h;ue net enlv the disposition but we
have the ability, from our abundant le
saurccs te pay both the principal mid the
current interest. And te-day t!:eie is no
governmental lean equal in security te our
own. In addition, the economy enforced
by the Democratic party, through its rep
resentatives, has iriven encouragement and
renewed life te our prostrate industries.
There is, in tact, no ether path le contin
Our opponents pretend te apprehend
and endeavor te make the people fear the
advent of the Democratic party te power.
There is no occasion for any alarm, and
they well knew it, Was there ever exhib
ited mere heroic obedience te law, or
greater love of peace and order, or stronger
devotion te the public welfare, than when
the Democratic Heuse of Representatives
allowed Mr. Hayes te be proclaimed presi
dent. Thev knew that the electoral com
mission had, in violation of the spirit of
the law, and in utter disregard et tnc mn
damental principles of justice, sanctioned
by its acts perjury, forgery and fraud.
The "solid Seuth" could then have
shaken again the very foundation of our
government. The public credit, by con
sequent anarchy, would have been destroy
ed, and confusion would have followed
which condition of things the Republican
leaders preferred te the less of power.
Hew did the Democratic party act ? Its
representatives- maintained peace and
order, and the public welfare, and regard
ed them of mere moment than office and
patronage, and preferred te wait iu pa
tience until the people in their wisdom and
JULY 30, 1880
love of justice, should stamp with undying
isneminy the foulest stain upon our form
of government and the deadliest blew ever
aimed at free election in any country. The
noble conduct and abnegation of the Dem
ocratic party, under these trying circum
stances, gave the contradiction te eveiy
calumny which their opponents se indus
triously charge. The Democratic party, in
the character of its candidates, in its
avowals of principles, and all its public
acts, stands pledged te restore the admin
istration te its former purity, and te hand
down the government te their successor
without disturbing any of the settled re
sults of the civil war.
When the enormous revenues collected te
carry en a great and exhaustive war were
still poured into the treasury under Re
publican rule, long after any necessity ex
isted for the imposition of such heavy bur
dens upon an impoverished people, and
were squandered in every sort of wild ex
travagance, the Democratic party called a
halt and forced pat tial economy and reform
of administration. De you forget the loud
clamor raised at that time by the Repub
lican administration and its officeholders
that the Republican party and especially
the " solid Seuth " and the " Confederate
Brigadiers," sought te cripple the govern
ment ? Yet when the Democratic Heuse
of Representatives insisted and compelled
economy by the dismissal of hordes of use
less officials and the cutting oft of unneces
sary expenses, and when the beneficial
consequence of this action evinced its wis
dom atM propriety, we then saw that Sher
man, in bis first annual report te Congress,
net only admitted that there had been no
crippling of the public service, but that,
en the contrary, still further reduction
would be advisable and proper. There was
the first real effort in favor of retrench
ment and reform, and it was the actual be
ginning of that restored confidence which
led te 'specie resumption and levived in
dustry, both results being promoted great
ly by the balance of trade in our favor.
What has the Republican paity done
for our shipping interests? It has been in
power for a generation, and that interest
lias fallen into a wretched condition. It
lias absolutely done nothing te free our
people from the shame of having our own
goods carried largely in foreign bottoms.
Indeed, its apparent contempt for that in
terest of our commercial ports is se un
mistakable that its platform is as silent
as the grave en the subject, while, en the
contrary, the Democratic platform is clear
and concise in its cxprcssin of sympathy
with the needed reform, and pledges the
Democratic representatives te secure a
remedy as te the change upon our re
sources and prosperity. This, among
many interests, requires a change of ad
ministration and a substitution of one
which will mero readily respond te the
pressing requirement of this great in
terest. The correct solution of the tariff contro
versy was, happily, rendered in the coun
cils of the Democratic party at the last
session of the present Congress. A bill
was passed by the Democratic Senate, and
is new first in order en the speaker's table
in the Heuse, and will surely be reached and
acted upon in December next, remitting
the revision of this tariff te a commission
of experts for recommendation te Con
gress. Should this bill become a law, as it
most likely will, the questions will, in a
great measure, be eliminated from party
politics, and that branch of revenue ad
justed in a business-like and comprehensive
way I want, in this connection, te say a
few words te the manufacturers of the
country, and ts assure them that they need
have no apprehension of injury te their in
terests in this connection. The highest
annual vicltl from customs duties during
since the war was ever $216,000,000, in
1872. lhc amount necessary new is gen
erally returned at $123,000,000 and I
assert that this amount cannot be raised
in an intelligent and business-like manner
upon the articles imported which come in
competition with likearticlcsmanufacturcd
in this country, without giving an ade
quate protection te our industries. There
may be exceptional indusf'ies which may
require a gi eater care, but they are few.
The iron interests of Pennsylvania were
net injured by the bill known as the Weed
Tariff bill, as'l knew, either in the rates of
duty, the manner of its assessment, nor in
the classification. The truth is that the
public debt and its payment, principal and
interest, is the safe ground of our indus
tries. The burden of an internal taxation
will be first abased as our debt shall be re
duced by payments, and our expenses ele
ct eased by reduction in our rate of inter
est. It is better for our whole country,
and especially for our manufacturing in
terest, that such a bill as I have alluded te
should become a law. Will it be a wise
and practical settlement of the controversy
between a tariff for protection aud
a tariff for revenue? Can it be said that
free trade in the present condition of our
country is possible, as advocated by these
philosophic minds which ignore positive
practical facts as they new exist? They de
net step fully te understand the financial
indebtedness and condition et our coun
try, and rely en principles that at this
time de net adjust the mode for the re
lief of the one or the improvement of the
It is as essential that the agricultural
manufacturing and eemmeicial interests
of this country should be kept in harmony
and accord as it is required that our triple
lerm of government, te wit, the executive,
legislative and judicial departnicnts,slumld
be harmonious in their lespcctivc spheres
without the least encroachment one upon
Every premise and profession of the Re
publican party i". falsified by its public
record. While it proclaims civil service
reform, its candidate for president repudi
ates the utterances of his party's platform
en this subject in his letter of acceptance,
and its candidate for vice president was
dismissed from office by Mr. Hayes's ad
miuistratien, because of his conspicuous
inefficiency and questionable if net worse
public official acts.
. It holds office te-day by the meat open
defiance of the popular will, and by acts
which weie subvcisivc te the votes et the
people, and yet it claims it is the only
friend of free and fair elections. The
president tells hew sincere and devoted he
is te elections entirely free from in
termeddling of officeholders, and yet sees
his cabinet officers using their power ever
their subordinates te compel submission
at the polls, and te pay out their percen
tages upon their salaries as an election
fund. But we need net be surprised ; it
is the same party and the same president
which paid from the public treasury the
reward of the conspirators who had helped
them te steal the presidency. This is
neither civil service reform, geed govern
ment, nor even decent conduct of its ad
ministration. The truth is the Republican party has
been in power se long that its misgovcrn misgevcrn
ment and arbitrary acts have become
chronic. Its followers begin te believe
the government and its patronage belong
te them. We have already seen in our
country, which has been taught se plainly
in the lessens of history, that long-continued
maladministratien, reckless extra
vagance, and shameless corruption seen
engender contempt of the restraint of the
people's will, and a craving for larger and
mere absolute power. Imperialism was
net a myth even according te Republican
authority. Justiceand honor demand a
change, that punishment may be meted
out te fraud upon the people ; that mis mis
gevernment and exercises of arbitrary
power may cease ; that corruption in office
may end ; that economy of expenses may
lighten the heavy burden of taxation ; that
harmony may prevail between all sections.;
that industry may thrive, and that our
sails may whiten every sea these bless
ings will come upon a free people, by the
long deferred but required change adminis
tration. In Gen. Hancock we have a leader
fashioned by the Democratic teachings of
the fathers of our government, soldier in
war and in peace endowed with the capac
ity of the statesman. He is frce from all
taint of official dishonor. He bows in ab
solute obedience te the Federal constitu
tion and the laws which it ordains. The
will of the pcople is te him the mandate of
the sovereignty in republics.
When Washington laid down his com
mission, Dec. 23, 1783, in the presence of
Cengres-s at Annapolis, after having
brought the war of the revolution te a suc
cessful conclusion and achieved our inde
pendence, the President of Congress,
Themas Mifflin, a citizen of Pennsylvania,
addressing Washington, who was regard
ed as "first in war, first in peace, first iu
the hearts of his countrymen," paid him
the highest eulogy in these words :
Yeu have conducted the great military
contest with wisdom and fortitude, hivar
riably regarding the rights of the
civil power through all disasters and
changes." This is the Democratic saluta
tion Te General Hancock. He, tee, has in
variably regarded the rights of the civil
power th.-eugh all disasters and changes,
lie is honest, capable and worthy. He
will be chosen, aud there is a bright pros
pect ahead for an entire country and all its
Uen. Ewing's Speech.
Gen. Ewing said that this demonstration
is net the voice of Tammany nor of Irving
Hall. It is the trumpet tongue of the
reunited Democracy of New Yerk, calling
te their brethren everywhere te rally for
A decided maieritv of the people in
nearly all the states arc sick and tired of
the Republican party, luat party cieeicu
Grant in 18GS, by a popular majority et
half a million. Jiiglit years ei itcpuuncau
i tile followed, and en a much larger popu
lar vote in 1876, the Republican paity was
defeated by a quarter of a million majori
ty. Though through fraud and bribery it
has since held en te power, its thinned
ranks have never been recruited, and two
years age it held a popular majority in
only six states or the union. And new
comes another presidential election. lias
the Republican party done aught te win a
new lease or power? Dees its rape of the
presidency and its reward of every accom
plice in the crime cemmcud it te public
favor? On the contrary has it net. by its
desperate resorts te retain power, suffi
ciently warned the pcople that their safety
demands that it retain it no longer?
Fer three sessions of congress the Dem
ocrats have had a desperate struggle with
the Republican party te keep bayonets
from the polls ; te keep partisan marshals
from using the common treasure te bully
and bribe electors ; te keep elections
where they have been from the foundation
of our government down te 1872, under
the exclusive control of our state govern
ments. We have, in short, been fighting
the Republican party te preserve fiem its
assaults the ancient liberty of our race and
the essential and immemorial methods of
our perfect system of government. The
Republican leaders arc driven te these
desperate measures, net se much by a wish
te change our free institutions, as by ex
treme love aud long habit of power.
Twenty years of absolute control of the
general government and of its vast patron
age, measured, as that. patronage is, by
hundreds of millions annually, is some
thing te fight for. Sec the multitude of
men who, since 1800, have risen te fortune
and position by it ! Half the great wars
which have drenched the earth with bleed
were feuirht te win less treasure than an
nually falls within the disposal of the rul-m.
nig party in the United States.
Aside from considerations of public vir
tue, considerations or economy demand a
change or administration. In March, 1875,
alter fifteen years of complete control by
the Republican party of the executive de
partments and both branches of Congress,
the Dmecratic Heuse of Representatives
was installed. In the five ) ears that fol
lowed the Democracy reduced the expenses
of government, including pensions, en an
average, ever $27,000,000 a year as com
pared with five years preceding.
But here our economizing must step.
We can go no further. The expenses of
tlic government, exclusive of pensions and
public debt, aie still $20,000,000 iu excess
of the like expenses, in propeition te pop
ulation, in Buchanan's day. I can tee no
reason why that additional i29, 000, 009 can
not be saved each year.
There is another and a stronger reason
for a change of administration, eis which I
could talk by the hour. Such a change is
essential te the restoration of harmony
between "North and Seuth. The chief
stock in trade of the Republican party has
been, and is, dUtrut and Jiate oe the
Seuth. That party will never de, of suf
fer te be done, anything te impair its capi
tal. "New that the giave has closed en
half of the actors in our unhappy tragedy,
it is time its resentment were buried, tee.
Tlic pretence that the Seuth meditates a
distuibauce of the .settlements of the war,
or compensation for all, or in any part, of
their losses by it, I believe te be ut
terly and flagitiously false, let that
charge, reiterated a million times
in every campaign in the North,
has created apprehensions of danger,
from Southern influence in our politics,
behind which the Republican paity has
dodged and escaped cexldcmnatlOl ler its
own misdeeds. Sound policy demands
that these partisan accusations be put te
the test. If they should prove true, which
I am sure they will net, the overwhelming
numbers and sentiment of the North will
overthrew the party responsible for sucli
schemes. If they prove false, as I am sure
they will, the administration of Hancock
will demonstrate that Seuth and North
arc in fact one in devotion te our country
and its laws, and will bring en an era of
geed feeling aud piospereus intet course
between the sections, which will give a
new impulse te our already marvelous de
velopment. Fellow citizens, at no time in our politi
cal history until new lias any party held
power ever twelve years. The genius of
our government demands frequent changes
of administration; change ter tnc saice
of change ; change te prevent abuses from
becoming rooted and venerable; change
te teach the lessen te paitics, which the
two-term rule teaches te presidents,
that they are servants of the
people, net their masters. In 1872
the voters were line for a change,
and would have made it but for the
blunder committed by the Liberal Repub
licans at Cincinnati in selcctini: a candi
date for president who. though most wor
thy of support, could net possibly get the
solid vote of the Democracy. In 187G the
people decided te have a change, but were
swindled out of their choice by Returning
Price Twe (tarts.

less useful and distinguished as statesmen
than as soldiers? It matters net what a
presidential candidate's profession or oc
cupation may be, the question is, what
will he de, and what will his election sig
nify? Garfield's election would mean
merely the triumph of the old machine.
He has always had tee much conscience te
be worse, and tee little courage te be bet
ter, than his party. Half the time he has
led it, and half followed, in its thousand of
fences against geed government. His in
firmity is lack of moral nerve.
