TUT REAL ISSUE.
rnlanlru v. serltaaalliu.
Following is the speech of Senator
Wm. A. Wallace, of Pennsylvania, de
livered at Hancock's home, Norriston,
Pa., on August 10th, 1880:
Gentlemen: It is fitting that here
in the home of General Hancock, the
campaign which we hope and believe is to
result in bringing his native State to de
mocracy, should be inaugurated. The
real and vital issue is the qvestion of
unionism as against sectionalism wheth
er the Union is to be restored and per
petuated, or whether sectionalism and
disunion are to continue to exist. Tbe
republican party, as a party, has practi
cally ignored the existence of the Feder
al Union by its appeals to its own voters
of the North to sustain that nartv in
their bitter attack upon the South, and
have ignored the broad spirit of union
ism that reaches out and covers the
whole country in its grasp. It is time
for us to return to questions graver and
more important than those hate, of
sectionalism and disunion. The questions
that really concern us as a people relate
to our returning prosjerity, to our pro
gress as a nation, and to the elevation of
our people intellectually and in a busi
ness sense. The campaign of the repub
lican organization is inaugurated upon
the old sectional issues. Hate is their
animating idea. Their policy commands
them to forsake their old party -associates
South and . thoy unhesitatingly obey
They would be unable te pointjto a "solid
South," to talk of Southern outrage, to
falsify the record and preach the gospel
oi uaie, 11 tuey wouia admit and recog
nize that it was possible for tfiem to car
ry a Southern State for the republican
organization. In Alabama thsy seek the
cover of the greenbacker and fight beneath
his banner; in Virginia they properly
cover thBiaelvs; beneath the banner f
readjustment, and practically ignore the
teachings that belong to the great peo
ple the national credit and state faith.
They clamor they have no votes in the
South. They do not want them, for if
thfy had them they would no longer be
able to appeal to the bitter passions of
the North. If the Southern outragos
they paint and the inability to vote they
preach, be true, the responsibility is up
on them and not upon us, for thfry have
had entire control of the governuieiit for
fifteen years, and have utterly failed to
restore the Union. They have not at
tempted it; it was not their interest to
produce it. Their interest and their poli
cy have run in a different direction, and
they have pursued the path of hate and
sectionalism and not that of peace and
harmony. The republican party has
ceased to be national, if it ever was such.
While the nation progresses, business-energy
revives and prosperity crowns us in
every section, this great giant Polyphe
mus, with his one eye in the back of his
head, can see but one section of the coun
try, and will not recognize the inevitable
march of events. General Hancock
The war for the Union was successful
ly closed more than fifteen vears ago; all
classes of our people must shire alike the
blessiags of the Union, and are equally
concerned in its perpetuity and in the
proper administration of public atlairs.
We are in a state of profound peace; as
one people we have common interests.
These are the teachings that best fit
the situation of this great people now.
What good can come from the success of
the Republican organization but a con
tinuation of hate, of sectionalism and
disamionf What can come from ours
but the restoration of die Union, the set
tleoieHit of all questions of sectionalism,
and tbe return in every Stale to those
questions of administration, of internal
improvement, of tariff or ;:" 'couomicnl
administrations, which propwiy leloiig
to the sphere of government i Their
policy is continued disunion, increased
hats and the perpetuation of bitterness;
ours is unionism, progress, and the restor
ation of business life in every swiiou of
the republic The charges they make as
to the condition of the South are not
true. General Grant, in his sjech at
Little Rock, on the 15th of April last,
' Citizens : On first landing on the soil
of your State and at every stopping-place
on the road, in the crowds of people I
met and the greeting I received, I saw
that the feelings of the past weie gone ;
nothing will advance your prospects so
much as an entire absence of sectionalism.
1 have noticed in my travels that section
alism is passing away.
In his speech at Cairo, on the 16th
he said :
To stand divided we are too nearly
ual, nian to man, to be a great and
prosperous people; let us hope, there may
be a genuine union of sentiment, a gener
ous rivalry in the building up of our sev
eral States. . ; . .. ' '
We must live together, and this great
people in their march of progress cannot
stop for bickerings and quarrels. The
genius of our people is progress, business
and energetic life, and the party that
stands in their road will go down before
the march of events. General Hancock
is a representative of this unionism ; the
Republican party and its policy are the
exponents of the reverse. Their policy
destroys our control of the manufactur
ing interests of the republic ; takes from
the North that peculiar Control which
has heretofore belonged to us, and places
factories, furnaces, rolling mills, and
work-shops by every river in the South.
The South has been agricultural; that is
its natural sphere. Its enormous pro
ducts from the soil have been and ought
to continue to be the most important
element in her progress and prosperity.
Disunion, hate, and persecution force
them to depend upon themselves and
thus deprive vs of what is and ought to
continue to be our natural market.
Another thought : the plain issue be
tween a strong government and a gov
eminent of the people, between the teach-!
ing of Jefferson and those of Hamilton
is involved in this campaign. General i
Garfield, in his place in the house, on the
26th of January, 1865, said :
I believe that the fame of Jefferson is
waning and the fame of . Hantiltewi-waTx-"'
ing in the estimation of American peo
ple, and that we are gravitating towards
a stronger government. I am glad that
At the Fifth Avenue Hotel on FrMay
last he paid a tribute to Alexander Ham
ilton as the leader of American thought.
The conflict is here again shaped between
the rights of man as such, and of power
and paternal government. That was the
issue the people of Eastern Pennsylvania
met in 1800, here in this locality, and
they turn form power those who followed
and believed in the teachings cf Mr.
Hamilton and Mr. Adams and placed in
power those who followed and believed
in the doctrines of Mr. Jefferson. With
us the individual is the unit. We gov
ern by individuality. All rights belong to
the individual, save those which are vi
tal to the conduct of the government,
and when those pass from the individual
the extent of the grant is to be measured
with jealousy, and its abuse curbed when
ever it occurs. We want no strong gov
ernment ; we want a government of the
people, by the people, and for the people.
Our candidate voices this when he sars:
This Union, comprising a general gov
ernment with general powers, and State
government with State powers, for pur
poses local to the States, is a polity the
foundation of which were laid in the
profoundest wisdom. This is the Union
which our fathers made, and wrick has
been so respected abroad and so lenefi
cent at home.
General Garfield and his party would
centralize the government. The tenden
cy of their system is to igw re the indi
vidual a a unit and to govern the peo
ple from the top. Federal election laws
are but one of the evidences of this ten
dency. They apply now to cities alone,
but concede the power and it grows upon
what it grasps and ultimately finds full
play in the control of elections in the
rural districts. In a republic all men
are equal ; in a centralized despotism they
are also all equal ; in tha former, because
they are everything ; in the latter, be
cause they are nothing. We want neither
sectional hate, disunion, nor paternal
Let us trace the record of the candi
date of the Republican party. He it is
who has solemnly asserted that the man
who attempts to get up a political excite
ment in this country oil the old sectional
issues will find himself without a party
and without support ; yet he is the man
who is now presenting himself to the
people as the champion of sectionalism.
of hate, and disunion. In this he is
about to verify his own prediction, and
find binisi'lf without a party and without
support He has eulogized free trade
and voted for high duties in one session,
and he has advocated protection and
voted for free trade in another. In 18
66 he spoke against reducing the duty
on tea and coffee, and in 1872 he voted
against placing them on tbe free list. In
1866 he replied to Mr. Stephens by say
ing : " - '
Against the abstract doctrine of free f
trade as such very little can be said, but
it never can be applied to values except
in time of peace.
Yet to-day he is paraded as the advo
cate of protection, while in 1870 he voted
to reduce the duty on pig-irou from 9
to 7 per ton, and in 1872 ho voted
for the bill to reduce the duties upon
wools, iron and steel ten pt-r centum.
In 1880 as'a member of the Committee
on Ways, and Means, he voted against
the bill reducing the duties on salt,' print
