Matrix# 2289, Take ?
May 26, 1899
Kramer Strasse, 4, Leipzig, Saxony, German Empire
Note: This one is a bit of a mystery. Pressed in Canada but the master is from elsewhere. The label says London but the "2289" just to the right of the spindle hole matches a matrix number on the CHARM website for the attribution given above. Nothing showed up matching "155", which is probably the local catalog number. Even though a German band played it, it is definitely a reference to Queen Victoria. Plus, it would have been improper to call it "God Save to Queen" after her death in 1901 so the date range is agreeable. Since Berliner had operations on both sides of the Atlantic and the Channel, one recording was probably deemed sufficient with a slight credit change depending on the market.

Also note: A plunk sound, not a skip, even before filtering at 0:47 regardless of what stylus is used.

TRANSCRIPT


"Talk on Money" by George Graham.

Fellow Citizens, we have congregated here this evening to find out what we know.
Now there is one thing I am glad of, that in this country every man is entitled to his say.
And the women will have their say whether they are entitled to it or not.

Now I wish to say something about money.
Simply in the theoretical sense or in a practical way the subject is entirely foreign to me.
Where is all the money going to, who's got it?
I'm sure I haven't got it and I know that women can't get ahold of all of it.
They can get away with four-thirds of it and we get what's left.
Some say one party get it, some say another.

Now what is money?
Ahhh, my friends if a man saves money, he is a miser.
And if he spends it, he is a spendthrift.
And if he loans it, he is a fool.
Now what are you going to do about it?
Money is the cause of all the misery in this world and yet every man you meet is ready and willing to borrow misery.

Now the financial situation of this country at the present time is something frightful.
We don't know whether we will have the gold standard or the silver standard.
We don't know whether a dollar will be worth fifty cents, seventy cents or sixty cents tomorrow or not.
The way that I get rid of that difficulty is every dollar I get ahold of I spend, I take no chances.
The government can bust tomorrow and it don't owe me a cent.
Now the Democratic Party said the Republican Party are all thieves.
And the Republican Party said the Democratic Party are all thieves.
Well they know each other, there is no sense in argument there.

Now if you want to end this contention and strife make me President of these United States and I will do it cheaper than the man that's in there.
And if I was President with one hand I would grasp the American Flag, the immortal Stars and Stripes, and in the other hand I'd have (a) three pounds of Limburger Cheese.
I would climb to the highest mountain, there standing upon the highest pinnacle of success I would shout:
"Downtrodden (one word?) people(s?), your hour of deliverance has come. (Light ham?), liver and onions (???) to five cents per pound."
