Politicians and Bosses Resards tho
Nomination as Call to Publlo Service,
Ht 8ayt Gathering Cheers For
Hearst Gravtt It Unable to De
New York, Bpt. 1. In exclusive
slramercy aijuare, where thirty yoars
ago Samuel J. Tllden, leader of the
Democratic party, resided, tho Inde
pendence; party notified Ita caudldatu
for the presidency of hit nomination,
denounced the older parties and made
a bid for popular favor.
Ited fire, bands nnd constant cheer
ing invoke tho echoes of thu famous
old plaro for the flnt time In runny
years. The old (lorard mansion,
where Dome of thu mott celebrated to
clal functions of bygone dayt were
held, rung with cheers "for our next
president," more cheers for "that great
leader, William Randolph Hearst." and
c clone of approval of the denuncia
tion of both Mr. Ilrynti nnd Mr. Tuft,
uttered by Thonins L. Illsgen, the can
didate, mid Mr. Hearst, the sponsor of
the new party John Teniplu Craves,
the candidate for vice president, was
unable to be present, but sent a tele
gram predicting success fur tho new
Nomination a Call to Service.
After slating that be regarded his
nomination as a call to public service
Mr Hlsgeu In Ids speech of luieptauce
went right Into the mnlu Issues of the
campaign and gave a vigorous outline
of the principles and policies be stands
for. He dedal cd It was necessary to
organize a new party to hi lug about
needed reforms, nnd so the Independ
ence party came Into existence. The
candidate inserted that the pro, cut di
vision of the reform elements had per
mitted the control of the government
to slip from the hands of thu people
Into the hands of machine politicians
nnd party bossis, and be said (hat to
take control out of their hands he ad
vocated "direct nominations, the Inltla
tlvt). the icfcrcndom and the recall."
Mr. lllsgon said In part:
The" only way to unite the reform
elements of Itoth the old parties Is in
it new purtj', nnd the only way to de
feat the reactionary elenmnts of both
the old partlea la with a new party.
Thanks to the present senseless divi
sion of the reform or progressive ele
ments, the control of the government
has slipped nvvny from the people Into
the hands of machine politicians and
party bob'es.
I believe that tho first essential of all
reform Is to take the conduct of public
affairs out of the bunds of siectal In
terest anil their tools, the corrupt
bosses, nntl restore It to the bauds of
the people.
To accomplish this I heartily advo
cate, as does our platform, direct nomi
nations, tho Initiative, the referendum
and the recall.
Favors Full Campaign Publlolty.
I believe, furthermore, that to ob
tutn genuine popular government tho
corruption of money roust be eliminat
ed, nnd I Indorse our platform declara
tion which not only cells for full pub
licity of campaign contributions, as do
Ihe platforms (but not the legislation)
of the ltepubllcau nnd Democratic par
ties, but which prohibits, ns they do
not. tint use of any money in elections
except for meetings, literature and the traveling expenses; uf can
didates. With the cost of living constantly
Increasing, with i nmpetillon stilled, hi
dividual oppoitunlij In business slcadl
ly lessened and a ban placed at the
same Unit upon tho light of laborers
and farmers to nrganUo for their own
protection, tin- bu-lness man, the woik
liigmaii ami the fanner want plain
speaking. 'I his they get pre-eminent
ly In the Independence p irtj platform,
and I ciinlnlenllj submit Us clean cut
declarations to mj fellow cltlens.
The trusts have grown nnd faltened
upon ltepnblli an rule, ami the Demo
cratic platform has nothing to offer on
the subject but a fanciful scheme of
federal license and meddlesome and In
effectual regulation and Inspection.

Courage or Lincoln.
Tho Telcbrnllnn of vnrlou Illlnoli
towns of the fiftieth nnnlvernnry of
tho Lincoln-Douglas debate recalls
the moBt remarkable oratorical con
tcrest In tho nation's) hlttory. Lincoln
and Douglas were rival candidates for
tho Illinois eenutorshlp. Lincoln was
tho head 0f tho newly formed Repub
lican party In Illinois. Douglas, tho
Democratic candidate, wns seeking re
election to the United Btntes senate.
The year was 1853. Tho slavery ques
tion was tho question of tho hour, nnd
practical politicians were handling U
In a very gingerly manner. Douglas
favored nonintervention with slavery
In the territories, n doctrine known na
"popular sovereignty" nnd derided as
"squatter sovereignty." The day fol
lowing his selection as candidate for
senator Lincoln, despite the dotermhv
ed opposition of his friends nnd well
wishers, went on record licforo tho
ncpubllcnn atnte convention as fob
Oentlomrn of tho Convention - If wo
could first know whero wo nro and whith
er we arc tending, wo could then better
Judge what to do and how to do It. Wo
orj now for on Into the fifth year tlnco n
policy was Initiated with the avowed oh
loct and confident promise of putting an
end to slavery outtntlon. Under tho op
raton of thy policy that agitation ha
not only not ccneed, but has continually
augmented. In my opinion It will not
eeaw until a crUl hall have Wen reach
ed and patted "A house divided ngalnst
lUclf cannot stand." I hcllovo this gov
eminent cannot endure permanently half
slayo and half free. I do not expect tho
t nlon to bo dissolved, I do not cxts-ct the
house to fall, but I do expect that It Will
ceaso to bo divided. It will become all
ono thing or all tho other. Klthor the op
ponents of slavery will arrcit tho further
spread of It and placo tt whoro the pub
llo mind shrill rest In the belief that It Is
In oourso of ultimate extinction or II
advocate will push It forward till tt shall
bcoomo alike lawful In all the states, old
as well as new, north at well ns south.
Prophetic wonll Whnt n reninrkn
ble mental vlalon of the future! What
courage tho man who saw It possess
ed! "No words so daring," anya Btod
dard. "No such unequlvtcal state
ment of tho great problem had yet
been uttered by nny man of polltlcnl
prominence nnd power."
Eleven out of twelve leadlug men of
Lincoln's acquaintance who saw the
srecch before It wo delivered con
demned the lold utterance ns mean
ing tho destruction of the party nt the
hands of Its captain, as being tho po
litical death warrant of the captain
himself. Dut Lincoln said, "If It must
be that I go down because of this
speech, then let mo go down linked
to truth die In tho advocacy of what
I right and Just."
Then camo the debates with Doug
las. Thoy revealed to the entire Amer
ican people tbo commanding stature
of Lincoln as consummate political
tactician and national statesman. Lin
coln compelled tho "Little Glnnt" to
fa co and commit himself upon n ques
tion either answer to which must bo
fatal to him It would lose him the
senatorahlp or alienate from htm the
south' support In tho coming presi
dential campaign. Douglas won the
Bcnatorshlp, hut1 Lincoln, who pos
sessed far moro wisdom as well ns
courage than his friends, actually
uaed tho debate to defeat two years
In advance his most formidable presi
dential rival, Douglaa' attitude on
slavery pleased northern Democrats,
who nomtnnted him for the presiden
cy, but tho south nominated John C.
Drecklnrldgo Instead of Douglas, nnd
Lincoln was elected.
The Llncoln-nouglas debate led to
tho fulfillment of two of tho chief
propositions of two of tho great found
ors of the republic that of Jefferson,
that human slavery should bo abol
ished in all tho states, and that of
ITamtlton, that this Bbould tx not a
mere league of states, but an Indis
soluble union.
A Oefense or Newport.
From time Immemorial It has been
thu Journalistic habit to brand llhodo
Island's former semtcnpltal ns the hap
py hunting ground of Mammon and Its
votaries. Newport has liocomc tho
sj-nonym for nil that Is obnoxious to
tho great majority which has never
felt the magic of Its Influence or tasted
tho sweetness of Its delights. The ac
cepted vlovv of those who hold tho
Newport colony In contempt, nllielt
that scorn Is tinctured with a geuer
ous flavor of envy, Is that tho dwellers
of the exclusive city by tho sea are
n group of degenerates upon whoso
hands time hangs so heavily that they
nro ready to snatch nt nny prospect of
amusement, 110 matter how absurd or
depravtsl, that will servo to release
them from n moment of laircdom.
At last an energetic apologist for
the mallgmsl Newporter has risen In
the well groomed person of Mr. (Ion
venieur Morris, whose very name
should curry convlcllon, even though
his pen fnll to do the trick. Ho cotnes
to the defense of the rich leisure class
with n vim Hint must excite tho won
dor uud admiration of thu luost languid
cliff dweller. What nre the facts? ho
domands. Instead of waiting for
some ono to answer he dove. It him
self. "Tho facts, of course, nre," he
declares, "that tho rich leisure class
contnlna perhaps ns largo n percentage
of honest fathers, i,ood mothers and
well brought up children ns the poor
working doss; that 111 this respect It
compare favorably even with the
poor leisure class."
Then Mr. (Jotiverneur Morris makes
n statomont which must have required
all tho courage ho could summon to
his nld. Hear him! "Now, If thoro Is
ono thing that tho American people
cannot and will not (If they can help

All this has come to light in conolc

Minister Wu says he ha heard noth

"Tho only Indlscreot speeches or In
