"When I find a man who denounces agitation and who tries to stop discussion I find a man who would feel more at home under a monarchy than he does under a republic, where the laws are made by the people. (Cheers.) It is because they know the gold standard will not stand the test of discussion and because they know that the fallacies which are in the arguments that support it will be discovered by public discussion, they condemn public discussion and attempt to compel the people to accept without protest a financial policy which Wall street demands that the American people shall submit to." (Cheers.)
