not yet complete. Whenever the coun
try really wanted something besides
talk, he added, it turned to the Demo
cratic party.
The President advocated the estab
lishment of a (Treat Federal employ
ment bureau. He said some means
should be formed for Quickening; and
hapenlng the process of the courts,
and. spoke of the necessity of passing
the Administration conservation bills.
Immediately after bis speech the
President went to the home of Mayor
II. Joseph E. Bell, of Indianapolis, who
was confined to his bed by sickness, ami
later attended a reception given by the
Indiana Democratic Club, which lasted
for an hour and a half. Later he took
a rWe about Indianapolis In the auto
mobile of Thomas Taggart and. at S:45
departed for Washington.
IJfe In Washington Lonely.
"Governor Ralston. ladies and gentle
men You have given me a most royal
welcome, for which I thank you from
the bottom of my heart. It is rather
lonely living in Washington. I have
been confined for two years at hard
labor, and even now I feel that I am
" aimply out on parole. Tou notice that
one of the most distinguished members
of the United States Senate is here to
see that I go back. And yet, with sin
cere apologies to the Senate and House
of Representatives. I want to say that
I draw more inspiration from you than
-They, like myself, are only servants
of the people of the United States. Our
el news consist in your sympathy and
support and our renewal comes from
contact with you and with the strong
movements of public opinion In this
country. That is the reason why I, for
one, would prefer that our thoughts
should not too often cross the ocean,
but sbould center themselves upon the
policies and duties of the United States.
Jf we think of the United States when
the time comes, we shall know how
this country can serve the world. I
will borrow an interesting phrase from
a distinguished gentleman of my ac
quaintance and beg tbat you will keep
jrour moral powder dry.
Hat-las Mild Aboat Jackson.
"But I have come here on Jackson
day. If there are Republicans present
1 hope they feel the compelling in
fluences of such a day. There was
nothing mild about Andrew Jackson;
that is the reason I spoke of the 'com
pelling influences of the day.' Andrew
Jackson was a forthright man who be
lieved everything be did believe in
fighting in earnest. And really, ladies
and gentlemen. In public life that is the
only sort of man worth thinking about
for a moment. t
"If 1 were not ready to fight for
everything I believe in I would think
It my duty to go back and take a back
seat. I like, therefore, to breathe the
air of Jackson day. I like to be re
minded of the old militant hosts of
Democracy, which I believe have come
to life again in our time.
-The United States had almost for
gotten that It must keep its fighting
ardor In behalf of mankind when An
drew Jackson became President: and
you will notice that whenever the
United States forgets its ardor for
mankind, a Democrat Is elected Presi
'.deut The trouble with the Republi
can party Is that it has not had a new
Idea for 3U years.
Searrh Made for Ideas.
i am nnt KDAAkine as a politician
I am Breaking as a historian. I have
I am speaking as a historian. I have
looked for new Ideas in the recoros
and I have not found any proceeding
from the Republican ranks. They have
"had leaders from time to time, who
suggested new ideas, but they never

talkintr. Drovlded they rould not do
anything. Therefore, when It was
necesivary to say we have talked about
things long enough which it was nec
essary to do, and the time. had come
to"do them, it was indispensable that a
Democrat should be elected President.
"I would not speak with disrespect
of the Republican party. I always
speak with great respect of the past.
The past was necessary to the pres
ent: and was a sure prediction of the
future. The Republican party is still
a covert refuge for those who are
afraid, for those who want to consult
their grandfathers about everything.
You will notice that most of the ad
vice taken by the Republican party Is
taken from gentlemen old enough to be
grandfathers; and that when they
claim that a reaction has taken place,
they react to the re-election of the Old
est members of their party. They will
not trust the youngsters. They are
afraid the youngsters may have some
thing up their sleeves.
Sarins: Sweet Things Wearisome.
-You will see. therefore, that I have
come to you in the spirit of Jackson
day. I got very tired staying in
Washington and Saving sweet things.
X wanted to coma out and get in con
tact with you once more and.-say what
I really thought.
"My friends, what I particularly want
you to observe is this: That politics in
this country does not depend any longer
upon the regular members of either
party. There are not enough regular
Republicans In this country to take and
hold National power; and I must imme
diately add there are not enough regu
lar Democrats in this country to do it
either. This country Is guided and its
policy is determined by the independent
voter: and I have come to ask you how
we can best prove to the independent
voter that the instrument he needs Is
the Democratic party, and that it would
be hopeless for him to attempt to use
the Republican party. I do not have to
prove it: I admit it.
"What seems to me perfectly evident
is this: That if you made a rough reck
oning you would have to adnrx that
only about one-third of the Republican
party is progressive: and you would
also have to admit that about two
thirds of the Democratic party Is pro
trresslve. Therefore the independent
progressive voters find a great deal
more company in the Democratic ranks
than In the Republican ranks.

' know what a team means when I see It; and I know what the cap

figure with me. ... . . .
We have cleared the decks.- We have laid the lines now on which
business that was to do the country harm shall be stopped and an
economic control which was intolerable shall be broken up. We have
emancipated America, but America must do something with her
freesometimes. when I look abroad, ray friends, and see the
great mass of struggling humanity on that ' continent, it goes very
much to my heart to see how many men are at a disadvantage and
are without guides and helpers.
I am not one of those who doubt either the industry or the learning
or the integrity of the courts of the United States, but I do know that
they have a very antiquated way of doing business.
Until the end of the Diax regime, 80 per cent of the people of
Mexico never had a "look in" in determining who should be their gov
ernors or what their government should be. It is none of my business,
and it is none of your business how long they take in determining it.
The country is theirs. The government is theirs. The liberty, if they
can get it and God speed them in getting it is theirs. And so far
as my influence goes, while I am President, nobody shall interfere
with them.

Democrats have heard the Republicans

which to handle a tariff, though the
Republicans have never given any ex

to put additional profits into the hands
of those who are already getting the
