The Manufacturer’s Need of Reciprocity [excerpt]
Associations, both in the capital city and in Ohio, have been formed to build a monument in memory of William McKinley, that his fellow-citizens may be perpetually reminded of his virtues and his public services. It is fitting and proper to do this. But it has been suggested that the best possible memorial to our martyr President would be some work in the line of his own evident wishes—and would not a sincere patriot, whose last words were for his country, be best honored by deeds in furtherance of those words? How earnestly his heart was enlisted in the success of the treaties agreed upon under his direction I have long known from personal intercourse; the world has known it since his address in Buffalo. Those in political accord with him should not be foremost in disregarding his last appeal.
