John 1!. .Ionian, A. A. Vosburg and

Hi st speaker, and expressed bis pleasure
at being present, especially on Mitchell

president as the man who hns done so
much to elevate the cause of labor
In America. Ho also complimented the
singers, many of whom, he said, be had
heard slug at eisteddfods In TUIcu, N.
Ho was pleased with the honor ot
being the first speaker on the program
me, and delighted to come to Scranton
to espouse the cause of Republicanism.
Ho was also glad to speak a word
for Mr. Connell, who by his strong
personality and Integrity had won a
place In congress second to none. His
subject was the "Gospel ot Hepullcan
lsm," nnd among other things ho said:
"The gospel of Republicanism Is the
gospel of prosperity, which rises high
a protective tnrlft nnd a gold basis ot
money. The Democratic leaders have
Intimated that the only Issue of the
day Is a tariff for revenue only. I
thought the lesson ot the tariff was
taught them In 189(1, but It seems they
nro anxious to revive It. The Repub
lican party Is ready to meet them on
any Issue they propose.
"It seemed also that the Istic would
bo Imperialism, or militarism, or ex
pansion, but our friends, the Demo
crats have Insisted upon a tariff for
revenue only. A tariff for revenue only
Is to place a tariff on articles not pro
duced In this country, while n. protec
tive tariff Is to plnce a tariff on goods
made hero and sold elsewhere.
"A protective torlff means higher
wnges, higher civilization, and better
prices for our products, and these are
what the Republican party stand for,
nnd Insist that they elevntc the plane
of civilization and plane of living. The
higher the plane of living, the higher
type of men we produce.
Fought It Out in 1892.
"We fought out the question of pro
tection in 1892 and were defeated, ond
we had to tight It out ngaln In 1896,
but then the Democrats ran away
from it. We did not provide for free
sliver, but placed the gold standard on
a firmer basis than ever.
"Following the election of 1S9G, men
found employment, wages were in
creased, and the American flag also
went up, nnd It Is our duty 1oday to
maintain the position we took then, and
to obtain the best possible return for
our Investments and our labor.

structing trolley lines In Cairo, Ameri
can machinery In being operated in
Scotland, and American workmen are
building London's rapid transit rail
way, nnd we have equipped the rail
roads of Siberia. '
Hold on World's Markets.
"These facts are proof that we have
fjrnsped our full share of the markets
ot the world. The Itepubllcan party In
hit every declaration and platform has
stood for trade exnnnsion. Dtirlntr tho

but for the ravages of disease would
not have lost a man,
"Since then we have welcomed Cuba
and granted her Independence, nnd
have opened the doors for the residents
of the Philippine Islands to obtain the
same freedom. The flag has been fol
lowed by the school house, civilization
and American methods. No one hns
questioned our right to be there, and
no one has questioned our right to stay
"Uncle Sam's drums are heard beat
ing halfway around the world, Eng
land, Germany and France have recog
nized our power and Influence, and all
this has come to us through the mag
nificent McKlnley administration.
"Jt Is now In the hands of the elec
tors to say whether or not we shall con
tinue this prosperity or go back to the
soup houses ond days of bankruptcy.
We are to blame If we let the Demo
crats take this power out of our hands.
We have been on high and stormy seas
and are now back to smooth sailing
again and want to stay.
"Wo arc cognizant of the past, sat
isfied with It, and confident of the fu
ture, and Insist that the ship of stnte
must go onward, so buckle on your
armor, get In line, have In mind your
future prosperity, and see to it that
the Republican party is hept In power."
The glee club followed with Con
gressman Connell's campaign song, the
solo' being tendered by Thomas Abrams,
who sang hi line voice. Hon. Alex
ander McDowell, chief clerk In the
house of representatives, was then in
troduced. He plunged right Into his
speech, and spoke In part as follows:
Gospel of Prosperity.
"Brethren, I call your attention to
the nineteenth chapter and the four
teenth verse of the gospel of prosper
ity, and tell you that a bird In the
hand is worth two in the bush, or in
other words, a contrite heart beats a
bobtail flush. From 1SSS to 1S92 wo
were prosperous and happy, when a
quack doctor told us we needed a tar
iff for revenue only. Wu took his pat
ent medicine and died from the effects
of his remedy.
"And now after live years of hap
piness they offer us this same lemedy
again. They are offering us the same
shredded biscuit they offered us in 1892,
but when the Democrats attempted to
force a tariff for revenue only on us,
wo rebelled against it, and we will do
so again on the fourth of November.
"If I owned this hall I would have
painted on the wall to my left a pic
ture of President Koosevelt, and on my
right a picture of John Mitchell, and
between the two an arch with this in
sctlption, 'Let us have peace.' That
is what the Republican party wants.
Is peace and prosperity for all.
"Providence Is working hand in hand
with the Republican party, and has a
great deal to do with our prosperity.
We suffered when we trifled with Dem
ocracy, and it behooves us to keep
nloof from their pleadings and mis
givings. "It is just as important to elect a
county, state, legislative and congres
sional ticket as a Republican national
ticket, for they are the picket line ot
the national army, and we must take
care of the picket line, for it represents
the principles of the party.
Voters Must Decide.
On Nov. t you must decide for your
selves whether you desire prosperity
or adversity, and if you stand by the
Republican party you can have just
the times you want, and it is for us
to say whether we will have them or
"The Republican party is strong
enough nnd honest enough to take care
of the trust question, and to eliminate
the bad and leave the good In them,
but the Democrats propose to smash
the trusts at once. The Republican
party proposes to correct the trusts, but
not to kill them, as they furnish em
ployment to ninny people.
"I hope you will all stand together
for the whole ticket, and If there is
anything you want In Washington send
Mr. Connell there. He can do more for
you than any new man can In ten
The mooting was closed with tt selec
tion by the band. A number of tho
candidates and party workers were In
attendance at tho meeting.
