New Insight Into Our Life.
It means much more than the mere
success of a party. The success of a
party means little except when the
nation Is using that party for a large
and definite porpose. No one can
mistake the purpose for which the
nation now seeks to use the Demo Democratic

point of view. Some old things with
which we had grown familiar, and
w hlch had begun to creep Into the
very habit of our thought and of our
lives, have altered their aspect as we
have latterly looked critically, upon
them, with fresh, awakened eyes;
have dropped their disguises and
shown themselves alien and sinister.
Some new things, as we look frankly
upon them, willing to comprehend
their real character, have come to as assume

by a new insight into our own life.
We see that In many things that
life is very great. It is incomparably
great In Its material aspects. In its
body of wealth, In the diversity and
weep of Its energy, in the industries
which have been conceived and built
up by the genius of individual men
and the limitless enterprise of groups
of men. It Is great, also, very great,
in its moral force. Nowhere else in
the world have noble men and women
exhibited in more striking form the
beauty and energy of sympathy and
"helpfulness and counsel In their efforts
to rectify wrong, alleviate suffering,
and set the weak In the way of
Btrength and hope. We have built up,
moreover, a great system of govern government,

age as In many respects a model for
those who seek to set liberty upon
foundations that will endure against

We have made up our minds to square

again with the standards we so proud proudly
ly proudly set up at the beginning and have
always carried at out hearts. Our
work is a work of restoration.
We have itemized with some degree
of particularity the things that ought
to be altered and here are some of
the chief Items: A tariff which cuts
us off from our proper part In the
commerce of the world, violates the
just principles of taxation, and makes
the government a facile instrument in
the hands of private Interests; a bank banking
ing banking and currency system based upon
the necessity of the government to
sell its bonds fifty years ago and per perfectly

and restricting credits; an industrial
system which, take It on all its sides,

the facilities of credit best suited to
its practical needs; water courses un undeveloped,
developed, undeveloped, waste places unreclaimed,
forests untended, fast disappearing
without plan or prospect of renewal,
unregarded waste heaps at every mine.
We have studied as perhaps no other
nation has the most effective means
of production, but we have not studied
cost or economy as we should either
as organizers of industry, as states statesmen,
men, statesmen, or as individuals.
Matters of Justice.
Nor have we studied and perfected
the means by which government may
be put at the service of humanity, in
safeguarding the health of the nation,
the health of its men and its women
and Its children, as well as their rights
in the struggle for existence. This is
no sentimental duty. The firm basis
of government is justice, not pity.
These are matters of justice. There
can be no equality or opportunity, the
first essential of justice In the body
politic, if men and women and chil children
dren children be not shielded In their lives,
their very vitality, from the conse consequences
quences consequences of great Industrial and social
processes which they cannot alter,
control or singly vcope with. Society
must see to It that It does not itself
crush' or weaken or damage Its own
constituent parts. The first duty of
law is to keep sound the society it
serves. Sanitary laws, pure food laws,
and laws determining conditions of

to determine for themselves are inti intimate
mate intimate parts of the very business of jus justice
tice justice and legal efficiency.
These are some of the things we
ought to do, and not leave the others
undone, the old-fashioned, never-to-be-neglected,
fundamental safeguarding
of property and of Individual right.
This Is the high enterprise of the new
day; to lift everything that concerns
our life as a nation to the light that
shines from the hearthfire of every
man's conscience and vision of the
right. It Is Inconceivable that we
should do this as partisans; It Is In Inconceivable
conceivable Inconceivable we should do It In ignor ignorance
ance ignorance of the facts as they are or In
blind haste. We shall restore, not de destroy.

those who question their own wisdom
and seek counsel and knowIedge, not
shallow self-satisfaction or the excite
ment of excursions whither they can cannot

shall always be our motto.
Task Not One of Politics.
And yet It will be no cool process
of mere science. The nation has been
deeply stirred, stirred by a solemn
passion, stirred by the knowledge of
wrong, of Ideals lost, of government
too often debauched and made an In
strument of evlL The feelings with
which we face this new age of right
and opportunity sweep across our
heart-strings like some air out of
God's owi presence, where justice and
mercy are reconciled and the judge
and the brother are one. We know
our task to be no mere task of politics,
but a task which shall search us
through and through, whether we be
able to understand our time and the
need of our people, whether we be In Indeed
deed Indeed their spokesmen and interpre interpreters,
ters, interpreters, whether we have the pure heart
to comprehend and the rectified will
to choose our high course of action.
Thi3 is not a day of triumph; it is
a day of dedication. Here muster, not
the forces of party, but the forces of
humanity. Men's hearts wait upon us;
men's lives hang In the balance; men's
hopes call upon us to say what we
will do. Who shall live up to the
great trust? Who dares fall to try?
I summon all honest men, all patriotic,
all forwardlooking men, to my side.

that -during my canvass for the office

room for many of the complaints that

no interest further than to say that
this condition ought not to exist. There
should not be any favoritism -shown in
the expenditure of the public moneys

That offensive taste and odor in some beers is easily avoided.
Light starts decay even in pure beer. Dark glass gives the best
protection against light.
"While beer quickly deteriorates when it is

exposed to direct sunlight, such deterioration,
although greatly retarded, will eventually take
place in diffused light, Beer exposed to the
rays of the sun will very quickly acquire the
so-called 'skunk taste."

We have adopted every invention, every idea that
could make for purity.
The Brown Bottle is only another step in Schlitz
Our beer was first brewed in a hut. Today our
agencies dot the earth. Our output exceeds a million

barrels a year.
More and more people every year are drinking

Murchell did not answer. He was

remember Wrenn George v Wrenn of
Clarion or have there been so many
Wrenns that you can't keep track of
them? Let me tell yon his story. He
was a preacher not a very strong
man, but a fine, big, clean hearted fel fellowsomething

who believed in his fellowmen and
loved them, the kind that would sit up
all night with any pool, suffering
wretch or share his last dollar with
those who needed it less than he did.
Everybody loved him. He married a
widow who had one son. He was a
good husband and a perfect father to
that boy. I know, because I was the
boy. They had a reform wavelet in
Clarion and sent Wrenn to the legisla legislature.

failed of re-election to the senate. It
cost you a million and a quarter to

point where yon needed just one vote,
and your decoys got after Wrenn. He
held out for awhile, but Oh. you

there was more money in sight than
he had ever heard of. and they found
his f rice at ?17.KK. And he was cheap,

that kind never lasts. He went down

The arrogant habit of a lifetime had

He took a few steps toward the door,
