i "To my fellow Republicans
Greeting: Would that it were my
pleasure to touch shoulders ' tonlghf
with the loyal Republicans of Jack
son county and southern Oregon, as
you are gathered about the banquet
table to do -honor to the birthday of
that first great Republican loader
and the greatest of all Americans
( "This night, the country wtaone
weal was so near to his great
heart Is again aflame in the ratine
of Liberty. - Is It Imaginative fancy
only to think that her travail reaches
across ' th6 seas of space to 'that
undiscovered '- country from whoo
hourne no traveler returns' straight
to the kindest and most sympathetic
heart' that ever beat in. human
breast? " If it docs., friends. I be
lieve that the spirit of the great com
moner hovers very close to us to
night. "You and 'I. good friends, are
doubly blessed in being both Ameri
sans and westerners. We breathe
the spirit of fair play from earliest
youth. ' So we, perhaps more than
other people, pay genuine admira
tion to any person or party; who
fights a good fight against ' odds.
Jackson county has long been Called
the hot bed of the Democratic party
fn Oregon. But this splendid county
Is rapidly emerging from Democratic
darkness Into the light of those
ound: principles of economics, and

to the wonderful work done4urint

Oh! Jackson county, we owe you too
much. ;. .
Loyalty Is CoatraMed.
"We are Republicans. How proud
that should make us feel on this
night that's Lincoln's own. When
we review events here since our
eountry entered the great struggle
to the end 'that government of th?
people, by the people, for the people
shall not perinh from the earth it
makes us thrill to know that we are
Republicans as well as" American.
; "For, not only have Republicans
almost unanimously supported the
administration in what3overe it ask
ed in the name of America, but they
have voted solidly for every grant
of power ormoney requested by the
present administration. More than
this. In more than one crucial test
of .strength Republican members of
congress have saved from defeat
measures asked for by that adminis
tration. Democratic in all its parts.
Moreover. ? they 1 hare saved" thee
measures from defeat at the hands
cf Democratic leaders and their fol
lowers in ; congress.' I have seen
much of the inside workings of the&
things at close range and know
whereof I speak.

on being members of a party trmt
Kfnce its birth in those trying tinwa
when th fate of our union hung In
the balance, haa at every time of

the rarty that struck the shackle's

Rat, 'Watc hman What of I he

tomap? ; In these days when the
waif of things undone Is found on
Uncle Barn's doorstep by a great
Democrat from Oregon every one
nust pause to do some serious think
ing. " 'To err Is human. In the Im
mense tak before the rountry. it i.i
natural that mistakes be mad :.
These the sovereign people will ex
pect, understand and forgive only,
and If only, the best fitted men In
America are given an opportunity to
to the best they can. More than t hi,
the people cannot ask and less than
this they will not tolerate at the fin
al day of reckoning.
''Experience- produces efficiency.'
For two generations the administra
tion of the affairs of our immense
country has -during the greater; part
of the time been in the hands of
Republicans. Obedient to a law
which operates as naturally and con
tinuously as the law of gravitation
the veteran administrators ' of the
nation today are most of them menv
bers of the party of Lincoln.
"This is one of the reasons why
it is no reflection on either the roo-1
intentions or well meaning patriot
ism of our political opponents that
the Democratic party and adminis
trative Inefficiency have long , been
thonxhtof as the Siamese twins of
American political and civic life.
"At this time when our country U
fighting for Its future security an
well beta, yes more, for its very life,
it Is vital that every bit of American
talent be mobilized and placed where
Jts functloning will do the most good
Is It less unpatriotic to wste talent
than fnelT No experience or capaci
ty should be denied official place If
it 'win help end the war ipeedjly
and successfully. ' Party nonconfor
mity should not relegate executive
talent of a high order to the aide
lines In. these trying times.

."Thus It is my fellow citizens 'f
the land of Lincoln, that tonight
our thoughts spring back to that
great war president whose bart held
."malice toward none.' To him' who
was big, enough and brave enough to
rail to his . side and to bis council
tabje uot only nominal political op
ponents but even some of his bitter
est critics in order that their great
abilities stoald not be lost to his
country in her hour of need.
"Today the structure of civiliza
tions is on fire and moments are gold

essary to forget party lines during
this titanic struggle and call about
their council tables representative)
of an parties.

Kxample of Gardner 'Cited.
"Such, It seems to me, is the high
purpose which calls to the American
voter to elect during the com I a 5
campaign' as many Republicans as
possible to the senate and house of
representatives. ' Congress need !
more men of the, mettle of Major,

"Shoulder to . sbmilder Republi
cans and Democrats should tighten
the traces. to see 'America' through
this mighty undertaking, whose suc
cess Is uppermost In the minds of all
true Americans." For such a con
summation we can work, my fellow
Republicans, with conscience, clea.
and brave the risk of being misunderstood-
Our ; political opponents
have set us the example of partisan
activity. The Democratic national
committee has been continuously ac
tive here In Washington and now
planning activity of far greater scope
"in striving to make Republican
J experience a partner in the conduct
of the war, partisan activity blenl3
with patriotism. It becomes: almost
sanctified because the colossal strug
