"I'm very glad of the chance to see that the name of your town is taken from a state where the silver sentiment is strong. But I am hopeful that not only in California, but from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast the silver sentiment is going to sweep the country. Reports from the old Bay state indicate that when the silver question is well discussed there as it has been here, the silver sentiment will be as strong there as it is in California and Missouri."
