Delano, an Ohio-born Republican Party functionary, was Grant's Secretary of the Interior at the time of this speech. "During his five-year tenure serious charges of frauds in the Bureau of Indian Affairs came to a head."[DAB]. Here he attacks "the specious cry of 'reform'-- the last resort of discarded demagogues," and rebukes Grant's rivals for re-election, the Liberal Republicans led by Horace Greeley, and "Free-trade Democrats." He recounts the Republican Party's triumphs over the preceding 12 years, defends the Administration's 'Indian Policy,' denounces the Ku Klux Klan, and pronounces the "death of the Democratic Party."
