Excerpt from The New South: The Democratic Position on the Tariff

Fellow Citizens of Tipton County:

It affords me genuine pleasure to be brought face to face with a Tipton county audience. It is here that I first meta spirit of kindly appreciation - it was here that I made my first friends beyond the limits of my own county. The generous support which the Democracy of this county accorded me, extended me a helping hand when I was just struggling to my feet, and in the desperate struggle for the nomination which has just ended, it is to me cause of pride add gratification that at all times my most zealous opponents conceded me an overwhelming majority of your county. To have been nominated at all was a great honor, but to have been nominated by acclamation, after having been opposed by three such able gentlemen as successively retired from the field of contest, adds to the honor an additional responsibility - a responsibility the demands of which I hope so to meet as to bring no harm to the Democratic party and no mortification to the door of my friends.

I have been requested to make some speeches on the subject of the tariff before the beginning of the joint discussion between my Republican opponent, the present member of Congress from this district, and myself. A lack of time prevents me from acceding more than partially to this request. But conceiving that there is not as general an understanding among Democrats of the Democratic position on this question as there should be, I have determined to make at least one effort to set forth at length what I believe to be that position. I speak as the Democratic nominee to Democrats. I wish to show exactly where we do stand on a question, the platform utterances upon which are said to be so vague and undecided.
