3 April i i,'l 90a try needs the judgment and conscience of its citi zens; the conscience cannot act until the mind is informed and nothing would contribute more to the general information of the masses than the official publication of such a paper as has been de scribed. The democratic party cannot compete with the republican party In the raising of cam paign funds and in the circulating of campaign literature, and democratic leaders have, therefore, more reason than the republican leaders have to favor the Inauguration of some plan for the -enlightenment of the voters. Then, too, informa tion coming through such a medium would havo more influence than that which comes from a partisan source and the reader would be mora open to conviction than he is in the midst f a campaign. If free text books are furnished to children because the republic requires an intelligent citi zenship, certainly the government can afford for the same reason to furnish to adults at cost the necessary inform...

The Commoner. April ii, 190a ' A Fine Tribute. Wendell Phillips' Prophecy; r In a speech delivered In the "United Statesjsen ftte April 7, 1871, the late Senator Morrill said: "We desire to retain the prestige Not of teaching nations by our ex- Subjectof ample how to govern them Commerce. selves, rather than to imperil our own existence by attempt ing to govern the incapables, whether near or re mote, upon fat soils or lean. We cannot confer freedom upon any foreign people freedom is the reward of merit, and not a subject of commerce or charity." William Hobbs, a man well known in news paper and political circles in the city of St. Louis, died recently and his biographer said of him: "He was loved by little children." No tribute could be paid that would be more replete with meaning than this simple sentence. Not every man is "loved by little children," and one may not doubt that at the bier of this man there were many sincere mourners. An interesting prophecy made by Wendell Phillip...

April II, 1902 The Commoner. 7 Mr. Hill's Attach on Chicago Platform. An Extract from David B, HUl AriicU in Vic February, 1807, Forum. The wisdom of making the silver question practically the sole or para mount issue in the recent -campaign was seriously doubted by many influ ential democrats who were solicitous for the party's future welfare. "It is the part of a wise man . . .. not to venture all of his eggs in one basket. ' To exchange Jefferson's sixteen demo cratic principles for one populistic principle was not regarded as the part of prudence. To risk everything upon u single issue and that one of questionable propriety seemed to bo unnecessarily imperiling the fortunes of a great political party. But even if it was desirable that the free coin age of silver should be the sole or principal issue an issue about which honest men may well differ the plat form declaring for such coinage should have been carefully drawn, its provi sions therefor should have been sur rounded with ...

If as has been Intimated this' pro vision was intended as an attack on the existing civil service laws, its crud-ty and semi-falsity are apparent when it is understood that every offi cial under such laws may be removed at the pleasure of the appointing pow er, while appointments only are re stricted to those upon the certified eligible lists. If it was deemed desir able or advisable to antagonize the whole civil service system a propo sition of questionable propriety some more appropriate words should have been chosen to express such purpose. A wise political party will avoid en tangling phrases and complicated sit uations which tend to forfeit public confidence and respect. There are other features of this plat form which are more or less offensive and objectionable, but space...
