"Fellow Citizens: I remember that less than a year ago I stopped off here for a few hours and spoke at the court house. At that time we were anxious that the Democratic party should adopt a platform which was Democratic. Since then a great struggle has been going on and last week it ended in the national convention and that convention adopted a platform that was Democratic in every line and every word and the party goes before the country appealing to the people on that platform."
