Mr. Pattlsen said:
Gcntlomen of the Convention, Fellow
Democrats and Citizens: In rospenso te
tne invitation comiuumcalea uy your com cem com
inltteo I have Come among you te thank
you for the honor conferred in selecting
me as your candidate for governor. Te be
the free cheice of uu untrammoled conven
tion such as this is no light distinction. I
esteem your action, therefore, at its highest
worth when I treat it as registering the
ex pressed will of the Democratic masses,
wh'em you represent, rather than the irk
some and despotic behest of an arrogant
master. Thus viewed, I repeat with all
slnceilty my grateful appreciation of your
act in assigning me te the pest of leader
ship in the contest you new inaugurate en
behalf of the peeple of the commonwealth,
te roscue their governmsnt and politics
from unworthy and selfish dictation.
The Domecratio party but assumes its
natural aud historic position when it
espouses the cause of many against the sel
fish interests of the lew. Its yerri of
groatest vigor and supremacy were theso
w lien It was most faithful te the instincts
of its origin aud the principles of Us found
ers. The period of its weakness and defeat
was the timolilse of Its shameful desertion
of theso primary and universal truths
which made It for se many years the pecu
liar guardian of the Intorests of the
whole poeplo. Alike, therefore, Inspired
and warned by the past, ' let us
"new highly resolve" that, keep
ing in tiew the common weal as
tne sole nmt el governuioui ami me
only oxcuse for party, we, the Democrats
of Pennsylvania will, if ugaln intrusted
with pe or by the people, prove that in
our hands their rights, their Interest, their
cause will suder no detriment. Inspired
by n mission se neble, confronted by a
duty se paramount, we should lay usldeall
personal rlvalries and ambitions and con
centrate all the legitimate resources of or
ganization and individual eUbrt te the
achievement or success. Fer a time en
gaged In manly competition for the honors
et the party the determining voice of the
con volition recalls us te our duties us Dem Dom Dem
ocrats and as patriots.
A prominent Republican official en the
threshold of offlcfeeneo gae oxpresslon te
the wlse sentiment: "He serves his party
best who serves bis country best." Recog
nizing the truth, by whomsoever uttored,
we arraign the present management of the
Republican party for its faithlessness te
this principje and for its inability, as at
present organized aud inspired, te minister
te the welfare of the wliole poeplo. Domi
nated by a few artful and reckless politi
cians, and pandering te the greed and
selfishness of faverites and speilsmen,
its overthrew is a necessary porqulslte
te the accomplishment el any vital
loferm. Pennsylvania, the seat of the
most ollcnsive exhibition of these evils.
ought te be made the Runnymede of se
baleful a mastery. We must appeal te the
peeple te leek for a chunge of results only
by a change of politics and public servants.
Ne rolertu can be oxpectod from the
autbeis and apologists et the evils sought
te be reformed. Our hope in this campaign
must be lu that patriotism which knens
no party disalllcd from the public wollaie,
lu theso citlsrens with whom country is be be bo
eoro pirty, and in that geed sense ami geed
pnrpose which ever Inspires the hearts of
the masses of the peeple uuder Democratic
I knew von will recognize the impessi
bility of discussing at this time the partic
ular issues new confronting the people of
our state. It will be my prlvllege te de
this in a mero formal and deliborate way
in the I ut ure. In the meantime, let me
counsel you te vigllance and prudonce lu
act and utterance, conciliating by candor
and convincing by appeal te truth and rea
son. We should have no arts but manly
arts, and upon theso alene we should stand.
We cannot and ought net te compete with
our opponents in the malign and sinister
influence uhjii which their prosent man
agement solely relies for retaining the
power ceriuptly gained and tyrannically
employed, if, us I vontnre confidently te
hope, victory shall crown our ondeavors,
and your cheice shall be rat I Hed by the
pe ipfe, I pledge you unswervlng lidellty
! the Interests et the commonwealth and
the duties of the office, that In this way the
success of uomecracy anil goon govern
ment may go hand In hand. Itonewiiig my
gratltude for the high honor you have done
me, and pledging my host endeavors te
achieve victory for the eause In which we
are all united, I ask you te excuse me from
unv nioie extended reinnrks.
After Mr. Paulsen's speech the band
gave a concert v. liile the convention waited

In respense te loud calls, Hen. Lekley 11.
Coxe made a few remarks, lu which he de
clared that unv Democrat who sulked at
this time was net worthy the name or a

ability of Mr. Pattlsen te win the coming

the goal which marks the close or your

ready te enter the broader Held et thought
and action which lies befere you, inviting
veu te win success tliore as you have wen
It here. Your student lire bus been char
acterized by nt least three elements which
enabled you te achieve the success which
new crowns your eflerts. The Urst of theso
wus the objector pnrpose you had In view,
that of completing the studies of cutirse ill
which you te-u.ty are graduated. A
second element was u determination
te succeed, te surmount whatevcr
difficulties you found In your " path,
a determination te conquer success.
A third clomeiit Industry, a habit of
diligence, a dixsltleu te de what
ever was lobe done, in order te accom
plish the purpose placed befere you. My
parting w erds of ud Ice te veu are theso .
lie guided lu your life work by tbe
same ntethes that directed your work

you Weigh In the balance of your best

In the bloody Holds of war. the renlmeut
was most dostructlve that alined low, but.
in lire warrare our aim must be uign, ir
we wish te be oirectlvo soldiers. And
when you have aelecte.1 yourlire work de
termine te succeed. Emersen says :
One thlnjr Is rerever geed ;
liial ene thlnr Is success.
A determination te de Is half the battle.
It is said or a general officer In the late war
that he directed the captain of a company
te sllonce a certain gun. "I'll try. air," said
the captain. But the commanding officer
thundered eut: "I didn't order veu te
try; I ordered you todelt," "I'll de II,"
answered the captain ; and be did, although
he lest mere than half his men, and loll
severcly wounded In doing w hat he was
commanded te de. Let me add: Fellow
your determination te win success by
habits of industry and the goal will be wen.
Net n day's weik followed by a day's rest,
but censtunt, well directed work ten, llf llf llf

ples guide yeu: 1st, a high pnrpose ; Ud, un
flinching determination; uud 3d, untiring
Industry. A llfe consecrated te a high
ideal, with a determination te reach that
Ideal, and steady work te de se no life

certain orthe highest success In this world
and lu the world te come.
Yeu will all cnter lhe teachers' profes

that ue profession Is higher than that of
teaching ; that the directing or f he
Immortal mind in lhe plastic, period
or Its Ufa is the noblest work lu which
man can engage. But the great responsi
bility of this culling urge you te your best
efforts and you will be rowarded by achiev
ing lhe highest success.
While ether callings are mere reutunora reutunera reutunora

and can any ene In theso days or meney,

will find In lhe life, of the teacher lhe re
winds that I'Oine from work well and
faithfully dene, and from the attractions
that belong feu llfe eonsecruted te the ser ser
vleo of ethers.
1 neeil net tell you that we, who as
teachere have sought te lead you in your
labors here, have boceino clesely attached
te you. Meeting you day aflcr day ter
years we have learned te knew you well
and te esteem you highly as a class and us
Individuals. We shall pillow your career
with loetings or deep. Interest and with
earnest prayers for your future success.
And when you succeed, its succeed we be be bo
leovo you will, we shall rojelco with
you, we shall be proud or you,
as our llnm mater Is proud
or many who have geno rrem boiieatu her

and faine for thomselvos. And when you
return te revisit the scenos of your school

wolcemoyou bore, and will always rocclve
a cordial groetitig.
And'iiew It remains rer me only te sover
your official relations le lhe school, by
Lidding you as a class farewell. But while
this rotation Is savored the tlosef friendship
that have bound you te as will net be
broken as you step evor the threshold nut
Inte lhe active world. May Ged lu Ills
