This speech was give by W. D. Vincent, a member of the U. S. House of Representatives from Kansas on April 28, 1898. He was a Populist. This speech is about Vincent's opposition to funding the Spanish American War with bonds. In the process, he criticizes the practices of the House of Representatives that discourage input from new members and particularly those in the minority parties (Democratic and Populist.) He was opposed to the amount of interest that would be paid on the bonds that were to provide the funds to undertake the war. He states his support for the war but believed that issuing bonds would put additional power in the hands of the wealthy.

Creator: Vincent, William Davis, 1852-1922
