Transcript I congratulate my countrymen upon the strong national sentiment which finds expression in every part of our common country.— william McKinley. "PAEAMOUM1 ISSUES" DEMOCRATS INVENT A NEW ONE EVERY POUR YEARS TO SAVE THE ENDANGERED REPUBLIC- PARALLEL OF 1864 AND 1890. The "Paramount Issue" is not a new thing with the Democratic party. It is of quadrennial production. The cry of impending danger to the foundations of the Republic has been raised regularly every four years. Each time the assumed cause has been something different from the preceding. Each time the alarm has been proved by the course of events to be false. As early as 1864, with the successful conclusion of the Civil War not nine months away, the Democracy in national convention declared the war a failure. They hereby declare, the platform read, that they consider that the administration of extraordinary and dangerous powers not granted by the Constitution is calculated to prevent a restoration of the Union and the perpetuation of a Government deriving its just powers from the consent of the governed. "After four years of failure to restore the Union," this platform of August, 1864, said, ' 'by the experiment of war, during which under the pretense of a military necessity or war-power higher than the Constitution, the Constitution itself has been disregarded in every part, and public liberty and private right alike trodden down, and the material prosperity of the country impaired, justice, humanity, liberty and the public welfare demand that immediate efforts be made for a cessation of hostilities." THIS YEAR'S 44 PARAMOUNT ISSUE." Strikingly like this sentiment and this language reads the Kansas City platform denning the ' 'paramount issue" of 1900. "The burning issue of imperialism growing out of the Spanish war involves the very existence of the Republic and the destruction of our free institutions. We regard it as the paramount issue of the campaign," the platform of Kansas City says. ■
