The Pennsylvania campaign of 1894 was
formally opened at Harristrarg last week
when the Leagne of Republican club of
the state met in annual convention. It was
an occasion never to be forgotten by tha
enthusiastic members of the party who
participated in it, and if the zeal there
manifested by the young men is contin
ued throughout the campaign there is no
room to doubt that the verdict of Penn
sylvania in November will be entirely sat
isfactory to the friends of the policy of
protection and most demoralizing to tha
few remaining advocates of free trade.
The great interest naturally centered in
the speech of General Hastings, which
was delivered at the Opera House on Wed
nesday evening in the presence of a crowd
of enthusiastic Republican workers that
filled every inch of space in the larga
General Hastings was escorted from bis
hotel by a delegation of clubs from II.tr
risburg and Stcelton, and it was fully fif
teen minutes after he appeared on the
stage before there was quiet sufficient for
him to proceed with bis address. Such an
ovation has seldom been accorded any
man in Pennsylvania. On being intro
duced General Hastings spoke as follows:
Mr. President and (imtlemen of the Con
vention of the Pennsylvania Republican Club
It was h peil that before the campaitcn in
Pennsylvania opened the lurifT issue would be
settled and that the lonn and wcRry contro
versy would be ended, at least for the pres
ent. This would have been a great relief to
the country. However much the people may
have entertained this desire, the country is
notified by the prrsideirf himself in his letter
to Representative tatchinKS that the agita
tion will be ri-tmmed in let-ember. at least as
to one of its most important features, that of
free raw materials. I think it is not too
much to say that the Immediate dnnfeers inci
dent to this agitation maybe avoided if the
verdict of the people at the November elec
tions throughout the country will sustain tha
desire of the senate to stop the controversy
over the tnriiT. and it is that sentiment more
than all other issues in this campaign which
the Republican party is called upon to direct.
The icoplc rarely determine more than one
isrue at any given time, and the overshadow
ing question now before us is that of Ameri
can protection.
Nothing has transpired since the defeat of
1S92 that ought to change a Republican vote
in 1W4. The Republican who then voted fur
a change appear to le ready to help bring
about another change, and the signs of the
times indicate that the peo;le generally are In
favor of a return to Republican supremacy.
luring the past two years we have followed
our banners in defeat as loyalty as when they
led the wav to victory, and it is a matter of
pride and abiding sal : -.fact ion that in the cam
paign before us there is not an achievement of
Republicanism for which an aistlogy is here
or elsewhere required. We have not aban
doned a principle hitherto espoused, and will
not. Our party's record illuminates every
page of our country's history since lstw. and
there is not a sentence tr a syllable we would
eradicate if we hail the power.
Today the young Republicans of Pennsyl
vania corue together todo their part for No
vembcr's conquest. The enthusiasm of this
convention is but another evidence that our
party is united in every section with a single
ness of puriH)se never before known in the his
tory of the state. With unshaken confidence
and unbroken ranks we will again seek the
public judgment after thorough discussion.
The people are anxious to vote. They are
desirous of recording their Judgment and en
tering their protest against existing condi
tions. In February last the opportunity was
presented, and the people of Pennsylvania by
an unparalleled majority notltied the country
that they were not satisfied with the ruling
conditions at Washington. Time has only in
tensified the desire to enter another and a
more emphatic protest.
Pennsylvania, with her great population,
her growing cities, her diversity of industries,
her native wealth, her intellectual advance
ment and unfaltering patriotism, has never,
when fluty required, failed to blaze the way
for the other states to follow. In this crisis
Pennsylvania will be looked to to lead the
Nature has blessed no other state with such
wealth and lioundless resources. The found
ers of our country made her the Keystone of
the federal arch. and her native wealth, united
with the industry, thrift and intelligence of
her people, hare made her equally the Key
stone of American protection. Kvery indus
try within her borders, with its teeming en
ergy and cheery music, contented and happy
workman and prosperous employer, was a
monument erected to the protective policy.
Today they are the forceful but silent protests
against free trade. She stands, by virtue of
her imperial position, at the head of the col
umn of protective states. She has long set the
standard for tiie nation, anil every principle
of self preservation and patriotism should le
incentive to hold her advanced position in the
roTuing struggle.
Pennsylvania stands for the fair and rational
protect ion of her o n material interests and
Ler own people, hut demands nothing for
them which she does not accord to every other
state in the I'nion. 1 hi. vean shilling faith that
the great majority of lc r people are confident
in the lcllcf that fu' progress, indepen
dence, thrift and conn men: are largely de
pendent ii)Hn tile sure and intelligent enforce
ment of the protective iolicy. They will so
ieclare in tittmi.-takahle toins at the first op
portunity. If P shall l-e asserted that national issues
haa n'i place in tin- state campaign, we rcply
that there is no citizen, no business, no inter
est, no occupation in the commonwealth that
is not conrcrnid in these questions, and there
is uu Mate in all the union so vitally inter
ested as Pennsylvania.
The well intentioned citizen who has not
yet derided how to vote at the coming elec
tion may well consider his ground. 1 hope he
will Inquire of himself how he likes the con
ditions since the Republican party has gone
out of power. lio.v has it been with him In
dividually? Has he had steady employment?
Is he paid the old Republican wage rate? Does
he find the cost of living cheajier. and the
ability to meet that cost better? Is bis busi
ness prosperous? Is he as contented and
confident of the future as lefore? When
be has answered to himself these vital ques
tions, let him. on Ills way to the polls, pass the
silent milt, the cold furnace, the broken bank,
the deserted forge, let him pass by poverty
and want, business paralyzed and confidence
vanished, and then record his judgment of the
responsibility for these conditions and his
hope for the future in the ballot which ha
places in the box.
Let him consider w hat would be left. If it
sere possible tostrikeout of the country's bis
ory that which had been accomplished
hrough the agency of the Republican party
vpndiatiou of the public faith, discordant
etatea. human slavery, civil war. a dishonored
flag, and the taunts of other nations that the
American form of government was a failure.
This is the time for the best endeavors of
patriotism. If it shall grasp the great oppor
tunity now presented, tiie Republican party
will enter niion a new. if not a grander career
In the redemption of the land from material
and industrial paralysis, from the lack of con
fidence which the father of panics, from that
commercial frenzy which drives solvency to
the wall and from that unscrupulous quality
of demagogy which seeks to array class
gainst class, capital against labor, and sec
tion against section.
Tha student of oar times has been urged to
believe that the responsibility for the present
aondltlon of the country should not be laid at
the door of the party in power. He is advised
that these depressions in business, by soma
law not understood or ezplained.come period
ically and irresistibly, and that the responsi
bility therefor cannot be located. But it is a
remarkable coincidence that almost every In
dustry halted, business received a stroke of
paralysis, and confidence, in almost every
avenue of trade and commerce, stood still tha
moment the returns revealed the fact that
Harrison was no longer president and that
his successor was reinforced by partisan ma
jorities la branches of the national legisla
ture. Another argument still more specious is ad
vanced that the cans of the panic must be
traced to the general effect of the McKlnley
tariff law upon the commercial and Industrial
conditions of tha country. The history of the
times has proven that law to be a most wise
and intelligent readjustment of rates and
schedules made necessary by the Increasing j
developments and demands of the country. I
It etoaed no industrial establishment. It
injured no individual industry. It reduced
no man's wages. Neither the McKlnley
law nor the Republican party left to Pres
ident Cleveland or bis party a legacy of hard
times, idle industries, unproductive enter
prises, or unemployed labor. President Cleve
land came into power with a country blessed
with unprecedented activity in every branch
of human employment. He found labor la
active demand, and found it better paid than
ever before in the world's history. He as- :
snnied charge of a government with un par
allel! credit and unimpeachable honor. Dun's
Trade Review" declared that "the year isat
has been the tuost prosperous ever known in
business. f
In the face of these conditions, its oppo-
nents declared "Republican protection to be
a fraud and a robbery;" that it was "nnoon- ;
stilutlnnal:" that it was "the culminating ,
atrocity or class legislation.
I care not what epithets may be applied;
you know and I know that after thirty years
of protection, up to the advent of the present
administration, this country was never more
happy and prosperous. I'nder protection we
took the first rank i a all lines of industrial .
and material development. Measured by any '
standard America led the world nndera pol- j
Ut of American protection, and notwith
standing the dark cloud that now rests over
it. aud which we hope will soon be happily j
dispelled, is and n ill continue to be the great
est, most prosperous and grandest of all the
nations of the earth.
The fucts are plain and the record marvel
ous. After lif teen years of tariff for revenue.
President Lincoln found not a dollar in the
treasury and the national credit gone. After
selling the bonds of the government at 11 per
cent, below par. Huchanan's secretary of the
treasury, when he found the bidders ex
hausted but t he bond not sold, advised con
gress to ask for an indorser and suggested
that if the stutes would go security for tha
nation the auction might continue and more
bonds he sold. This was the condition when
Lincoln, the Republican party, the civil war
and a new protective taritf began to make his
tory. Lincoln lived only to see the successf nl
issue of arms. Those who came after him
struggled with a war debt of appaling propor
tions and sought to reconstruct a land de
pleted of men and money, laid desolate by
carnage. A third cm a century later the marks
of strife upon the battlefields were no more
nearly effaced than the war debt, and today
the story of both is told in enduring monu
mentsand the nation's pension roll. Where
doesbistory record a parallel for such a strug
gle and such a glorious issuer
And through these years istpnlations in

workshops and factories, mills and furnaces,
linked together by railroads and rivers, were
filled with happy, prosperous and contented
people. The broken bank, the assignee and
the receiver were as much a curiosity as the
idle workshop. Labor was never so well paid
in any country or in any time, and it was
never in greater demand and never paid in
better money. Whatever the future may have
in store for our country ami her Industries
and her commerce, the record of the past
thirty years will stand forth as a monument
to the wisdom and sagacity of the statesman
ship that continued from Lincoln to Harrison.
This campaign should not be lost or won
upon mistaken issues. There should be no
rtsnu for passion or prcjudice.norfor thedem
agoguc or professional calamity shouter. The
real issues are largely questions of business
and govern Uicnt. My ersonal respect and
regard for the distinguished leader of the e
raocrucy and his associates on the ticket are
an additional reason with mo that there
should be no cloud upon the true issue, lis
has been for many years the leader of free
trade thought in this state. His great news
paper for many years has teen the fearless
and iersisteiit advocate of fne trade. I knov.
of n single time In the Inst decade when his
newspaper has swerved from the line marked
out by its owner to instill into every house
hold where his paper went those principles of
free trade so clearly Bet forth in the Chicago
platform, and so persistently inculcated by
ITesidcnt Cleveland and his party.
Heretofore we have never contended that the
differences between the parties were nearly so
great as are now demonstrated by the events
of the Inst year and a half. The people of this
country are determined to better their condi
tion, if Intelligent votinz will do the work.
This determination comes from the grave ne
cessities of the hour necessities sadly shown
to be far more important and powerful than
prejudice or fealty to political parties.
The American iMple are progressive, ag
gressive, restless and ambitious; they are al
ways seeking to better their condition. Their
ingenuMy and activity in politics have been
little short of the same qualities exhibited iu
their inventions and enterprise as applied to
our industrial and material conditions. In
the latter regard they have eclipsed every
other land .and every other people. These
qualities, prevailing to a lesser decree in Eng
land, directed the tendency in the United
Kingdoiu. because of its limited territory and
overflowing population, toward ultimate free
The English Influence, so persistently Incul
cated in the American mind, ton large degree
led many of our people to a belief that free
trade wunht be a step in advance and a bene
fit to our country. We had lived through a
generation of protection and our prosperity
and development w-ere regarded as a cunstant
factor attached to all lines of industry and
trade which it was thought no legislation
could affect. So persistently had the free
trade doctrine been dis-emiimted that many
well Intentioned people all over the country
begun to liok upon protct tion r i positive in
jury and the creature of weaun to increase
wealth at the expense of those who were less
fortunate. At all events the party which de
clared Republican protection tobe "fraud and
robbery" elected their typical representative
president of the United States aud placed a
majority of his own party in both brunches of
congress to assist him in carrying out his well
declared intentions.
His induction into office was coincident with
the beginning of a steady drain of gold to
other countries, a return of American securi
ties to our own shores, where they found a
disordered market, which went from bad to
worse until the currency of the country was
largely withdrawn from circulation, tbebusi
ncss interests paralyzed, labor without em
ployment, and the American labor market re
duced toward a par with the cheaper market
of the world. Banks were compelled to close
their doors, financial Institutions were driven
to the wall, and the business of the country
lay prostrate.
The president arrived early at the conclu
sion that the repeal of the purchasing clauses
of the Sherman silver law would relieve the
country. Good men In both parties took op
posite views on the subject, but the general
consensus of public judgment seemed to be
that a prompt repeal of the Sherman law
w ould at least give a measure of relief. The
bitter debates and contentions which f "Mowed
the introduction of the measure in congress
and the long and needless delay in its consid
eration found p-.e country, when the measnre
reached the piVsident for his signature, in a
condition where almost every institu'iin and
industry that was not destined to survive
every possible condition of embarrassment
had gone down in the general crash.
At the same time the Wilson bill, prepare!
by the leading free traders In congress, bear
ing the stamp of the president's approval, was
Introduced and found a speedy passaga
through the lower house of congress. There
were many Democrats of that body who real
ized that the final passage of the measure
would sound the tocsin of their own political
death, as well as financial ruin to many of
their constituents. The influences, however,
which made the bill and backed its passage
were stronger than any the objecting Demo
crats could bring, and between the Scylla of
protectltin of borne industries and the t'haryb
dis of free trade at the White House the
measure found an easy voyage to the senate.
There trouble began in earnest. Strong, In
dependent and patriotic men were brave
enough to encounter presidential disfavor
and party censure rather than acquiesce in a
measure that would surely prove disastrous
and bring ruin among the people whom they
had been chosen to represent. To save them
selves, perhaps more than to succor the coun
try, they began adding protective amend
ments for the benefit of their respective con
stituencies. Republican senators were power
less to mould: they could but back by threats
of delay the demands of Democrats for pro
tection. The people of the country who came
to lay their petitions and appeals before the
committee were ignored. The star chamber
councils of the senatorial committee were
closed against all the country and their rep
resentatives, even the Republican mem
bers of the commiteee being excluded. The
south alone secured a bearing. It dominated
both committees, alike in numbers and in
fluence. Most of its demands were for free
trade, because the plantation system fosters
a policy which means poorly paid labor; hut
where the south needed protection it got it.
Sectionalism did all it could and was only
prevented from doing more by the attitude of
a handful of northern Iemocratlc senators,
who met its demands with outspoken protest,
as brave as the protests of Pennsylvania's
patriotic Samuel J. Randall in his successful
battle against the Mills bill.
It is safe to say that no protective amend
ment would have found a lodgment upon the
riglnal bill if a sufficient number of senators
could have been found in the body to pass it
Concessions had tobamadeinordertoobtaina

the party and its chosen chieftain, resulted in

office to force his own notions upon the senate,

other crimes, of "party perfidy and dishonor.
The people's interests were lost sight of In
the angry contentions between the president
ana the opposing faction of bis own party foe
supremacy. In that contest the victory was
against the president and on the side of the
spotted bill. Indeed, the earnest and growing
opixmition compelled him to lower his colors,
while his majority in the house made a speedy
surrender, firing a few popguns by way of
The product of the year's work on tariff re
form has resulted in placing on the statute
books a measure which satisfies neither po
litical party. A distinguished Democratie
senator publicly declared before the senate
that he doubted if it gave satisfaction to a
thousand people in all the land. Twelve
months' work for free trade is ended. The
people In patience and actual suffering have
waited for a new dispensation, which was to
bring prosperity, happiness, comfort and con
tentment to all the land, and all of the people
We read In the history of earlier times that
there long prevailed a common thought cur
rent through many eras that In the business
of acquiring money or proiierty.what one mai
gained another lost. No other theory of tho
exchange of wealth was more popular than
this. Among the commercial nations dealings
through barter, rather than manufacture or
materal development, appeared to justify the
theory. Such a comparison of values extended
in the earlier days to this country, and won
somewhat of general acceptance, but more re
cent experiences have proved its fallacy.
This controlling thought must have been in
the mind of Mr. Lincoln when he declared in
his homely way that the simplest explanation
of American protection was embodied in the
suggestion that if an American purchased S3U
worth of goods in a foreign country America
had the goods ana the foreign country bad
the money.but that if the Americ an purchased
the gocsls in America, America would have
both the goods and the money.
Since the events of the past eighteen months
have called a halt upon development every
man and woman in the land has become
poorer than before. The mechanic has had lo
trench upon the snvingsof his previous pros
perous years to enable his family to live. So,
too, has it hvcu in greater or less degree with
the capitalist, the uierator. the miner and
the farmer. No ratling has been exempt from
the universal fall, and all have suffered a loss
of substance, the suffering being largely
measured by the ability to bear it.
It is sadly easy to realize this truth so uni
versal throughout the country. It is now seen
and known of all men and women and it
strikes from under it the very foundation of
free trade, which looks only to free exchanges
of goisls in tho marts of the world. The
United Suites desires and demands more than
that. It is the richest in resources of all lands
given to tiie use of man. It bus untold stores
of every class of material wealth, needing
only the handiwork of man to niake it con
tribute to the usesof civilization. These at
tract to them both population and capital ;
hence our great towns aud cities distant from
every other avenue of commerce than is af
forded by great railways and internal water
ways. The highway of the sea is not the only
thoroughfare leading to profitable markets.
Here we seek within our own borders a mar
ket which should be our own, a market af
forded by 7o.tMi.OuO of people who when pros
perous are the best buyers and the most ex
tensive consumers known to trade. With
manufactures and all other lines of industry
closed by adverse legislation, the home labor
tuarkct falls to the level of the cheapest mar
kets. The power of leglslat ion over, nay, the
threat of legislation upon the question will
never again le mistaken by the people. They
see it now as they had never seen it before.
With the belief that the question might be
settled in some form and the agitation al
layed, and with the earnest desire to adjust
ail lincss of industry lo the conditions im
posed by the new law, it was hoped that busi
ness generally wonld try to resume; but with
tiie distinct notice from the official head of the
party In power that the agitation will be re
sumed when congress convenes in December
next, it is to be feared thut the beat we may
expect will be to see poverty not so intense,
comfort modified by careful economies, pro
gress upon lines shaded to suit difficult sur
roundings, development modified to lessened
needs, and all too sadly, cheaper men and
women tluau we were wont to see under a
round generation of Republican legislation.
Painful as is this reflection, it is but the
darker cloud which Invites the dawn The peo
ple hae been awakened as never before. If
the November elections shall restores Repub
lican house of representatives at Washington,
the initial step will have been accomplished,
and if the popular verdict shall be decisive
not only in Pennsylvania, but in every other
section, it will surely pave the way to a re
newed ascendency in "(Ki. and the elect ion of a
Republican president will crown the efforts
made necessary by the vicissitudes of 'W and
Congress is adjourned. Its house members
are returning to face criticism from theiroon
stitueuts, whi:e the Democratic majority in
the senate Is divided into free trade and semi
protective factions. Thr president, after ten
days' consideration, declared that he was so

hegavethe country notice that :it the next
session of congress in Dccemlcr the tariff agi
tation would be renewed antl I lie warfare

to all raw materials.
This is the lamentable product of the work
of the past year. The mighty energies of the
country lie dormant after a year's waiting for
the outcome of a crusade whose results h:'.ve
disgusted even its creators.
Let the thoughtful men of the state and the
country who have in view the great problems
and perilous perhsls which were so bravely
met and mastered by the Republican party
during the past thirty years, consider the va
cillating end disastrous efforts of the party

themselves incapable of formulating or carry
ing out any consistent policy of constructive
legislation? Is it not true that since the party
was placed in control of the government in
1HB2 there has been scarcely a question of ad
ministrative policy, foreign or domestic, in
which it has not gone counter to the sober
Judgment of the great body of the American
people ?
The. people will endeavor to adjust them
selves to the new c. editions, and it is my
earnest hope that far as possible a read
justment will offer r industries un oppor
tunity to resume business.
If the people are satisfied witli the year's
work at Washington they will vote for a con
tinuation of that kind of governmental policy.
If they are not. as I believe they are not, they
will abide the time until they can make an ef
fective appeal to the freemen's tribunal, the
American ballot box.
In its infancy the Republican party was
strong enough, with the aid of the patriotic
citizens of all other parties, to restore the
Union; in its youth it was wise enough to give
our nation and its p.-ople unprecedented pros
perity; in its manhood it is great enough to
bring bock a prosperity lost through misun
derstanding and misrepresentation.
The present conditions invite the profound
est thought and the highest patriotism. They
invoke a deeper reverence for law and order.
They demand an American standard compre
hending every American interest and individ
ual. Let English statesmanship provide for
tireat Britain; let France and Oermany and
Russia and the other nations provide for them
of their own bou-hold. They have proven
through ages to be able to take care of them
selves. Let American charity begin in the
American home.which is the unit of American
stability and glory. Let us raise the stan
dard of American citizenship and teach
ourselves to appreciate more deeply the
blessings that God has showered upon
onr land and all of ita inhabitants. Let
us be more patriotically jealous of our indi
vidual and national privileges and preroga
tives, antl more careful whom we permit to
hare them with us. Lot us bold fast to the
great fact that each one of us is an integral
and responsible part of our common country;
that we are relatively responsible for its up
building or its decline; that the emblems upon
these walls are onr colors bequeathed to us
by other Americans whose example should be
as a torch to our future progress; that this
is our country and these our institutions, nnd
that every battlefield and patriot's grave Is a
monument erected to insure their prosperity.
The fathers guaranteed to us both civil and
religious liberty, which, as in the past, so in
the future, must ever run in paraUel Unes,and
you well know that parallel lines never come
together. The same power guaranteed to us a
lee simple title in all American institutions.
Therefore, the American market is our mar
ket; the American home is our home; the
American free schools are our schools; the
American Sabbath is our Sabbath; the Ameri
can fields and farms, mines and mills, fac
tories and workshops are ours, to be defended

" Gentlemen : I write these line to certify
that Hood's sarsaparilla has cured me of a most
painful disease from which I have suffered the
past four years. It appeared In the form of
eruptions on my neck and face, spreading over
my body, so painful that I could not sleep at
night, and could not work In the day time, and
when I did lay down and get Into a little doze. If
I would move just a little. It would start that
terrible sensation, and

from the eruptions on my legs and body. I had
to wear bandages all the time. My eyes were
badly swollen, my back lit terrible condition.
One physician said It was weed poison, another
eczema, and the last told tno it was
Nicotine Poisoning,
and that I would have to go to a physician who
made a speciality of my disease. (I omitted te
say thut I am a cigar maker by trade.) Bat
Hood's Sarsaparilla had been recommended,
and 1 thought I would try It. and I am heartily
thankful thut I did. I can truly say that Hood's
