The Erie Itailroad supplies its employees
With a remarkably enpnnio sort of track tor

approached Middletown was equivalent tothat

Wart In true Republioan unison. There
ware 1.600 people on the station platform, on
I the tracks and on the roofs of the freight cars
opposite the station if there was one. It was n
crowd that, was aggressively anxious to get a
front place at the speaking and to hear and see
everything that was going on. It was In no
sense a rowdy crowd, as it showed by quieting
oown and paying the olosest attention to the
speakers once they appeared on the platform.
As the train stopped a smutty-faced man with
bundle of wire and a pair or big tin clippers
In his bands made a frantic effort to get upon
the platform. Neither Col. Roosevelt nor any of
his party had as yet appeared.
" They aay he Is the friend of the laboring
man," yelled the tinsmith to his fellow-citizens
below, and If he comes out here I am going
to find whether be Is or not. I think they are
lying to us."
The orowd wss silent. It was perfectly ap

way. was 0. A. Morsel didn't believe that Col.

lie had barely told the orowd what his idea
was when Mr. Depew and Col .Roosevelt dim
out upon the platform. Horse plucked at the
candidate's coat. "Hey. there, Colonel," he
said, "shake." Col. Roosevelt looked at his
square-cut eager fnce and put out his hand
and grabbed the tinsmith's hand, greasy and
blank as ltwaa. "lam very much obliged to
you." he said quietly. Those of the crowd who
had heard Morse's declaration laughed and
beared. Horse himself cleared the platform
with a leap. .
"He Is ad right!" ho roared; he is all right 1
He saw I was in ray working clothes and he
never shied at my hands at all. though I had a
light to wash them before I asked him to take
hold. I said I would find out whether his

During the rest of tho Middletown proceed

want to get his name that Teddy Roosevelt waa
good enough for him to rote for, and he didn't

MB. CLARKE QUOTES A POEM.
John Proctor Clarke made a short address on
the Issues of corrupt courts and general law
lessness, as Mr. Croker and Mr. Hill have de
fined them, and illustrated It with this poem,
which waa printed in The flux this morning:
If your Judges disobey you,
Tiirs em duwn.
With the wrong if tlisr srrsy you.
Turn cm ilnwn.
I.t tbem find out to thrlr Iom

When the Ballot law yon're besting,
Knock him down.
Get your rote in anyhow.
If he dare to tnak a row.
Knock him down.
"We have been doing some knocking down,
too." ssld Mr. Clarke, while tho crowd shouted
in approval. "It was all done In Cuba. We
knocked down Spaniards, and we had the right
on our side."
Judge W. M. K. Olcott followed Mr. Clarke
with s short talk on the necessity for remem
bering thst, though the Democratic partv did
not talk about national issues, national Issues
The number of people at Port Jervls was but
very little less thsn that at Middletown, but the
character of the gathering was altogether dif
ferent. Many of those who had gathered at
Middletown were women, and there were not
a lew well-dressed men who had come
down to the station In smart traps that
were tied along t he street out beyond t he crowd .
At Port Jervls there were lew women in sight.
The menwere almost without exception railroad
workmen. They wore battered dorby hats
and greasy caps Not n third of them wore
boiled shirts. There was a squad of ten or
fifteen men of the Second New York Volunteers
near the rear platform of the car when the
crowd closed iti as the train stopped. They
started off with cheers for Col. Roosevelt be
fore the train had stopped. This is what Col.
ROOSEVELT'S SPEECH AT PORT JEBVIB.
"Mr Fellow Citizens. Men and Women
or Port Jebvis: Here in the town whence
(largely by the exertions of the veterans or the
f treat war) you sent over a hundred rngu
ars and volunteers Into this war. you
will allow me to say a word about
those men. Nationally, I think all Americans,
understand the service of the regular army
and are prepared to stand by thai, army as
never belore. I Applause. In Htate matters
we of New York are peculiarly bound to stand
, by-the National Guard. I Applause. I served as
a volunteer during last summer. I have seen the
regulars and the volunteers side by side. I
learned to greet them us I greet my comrades
now. I know what the Guard needs and what it
want. 1 know t hat It needs proper arms. We
have a right to demand that our Guardsmen be
as well armed as any troops In the world. I
know that It needs proper equipment In every
way : that it should be mnnaged on the best
possible system and that its officers should be
chosen without regard to politioal conditions,
with a view solely to the fitness of the men and
the needs of the service. (Applause. If I am
elected Governor of New York, I will put
the National Guard on the highest pos
sible plan of soldierly efficiency. IA mem
ber of the Second Volunteers: We believe
you." We make this canvass square and fair on
the lines or honesty in Htate matters. Much
has been said about the maladministration of
the canals. If I am elected Governor I shall
probe that matter to the bottom. If the de
fects are due to the system, the system shall
be changed ; if they are due to incompetency of
any public officer, the officer shall be removed.
If any man in the service of the Htate of New
York, whether In the Canal Department
or of any other, has been guilty or shall
be guilty of dishonesty, he shall assur
edly be punished to (he utmost limits of
my power. I Applause) Now our friend say that
they wont to be honest sbont the canals. Why
don't they begin to be honest about the judi
ciary? Why nave they not been honest In the
administration of the city of New York ? The
brothels and gambling hells of New York
city are yielding a corruption fund, part
of which our opponents hope to use in
carrying the Htate. Yet, In their campaign they
dare to talk about honesty. What can be more
Important to the people than honesty In
llnancer Would you trust a man to be honest
in anyone branch of business if he was dis
honest in another? Will you trust a party's
profession ot honesty where they have
been tried, snd where they fsiled absolutely ?
Will you trust them when they say they will be
honest about the csnals when they do not dare
to tell you whether they will or will not be
honest about free silver. They have candi
dates running in New York, candidates who
will have to vote for or agsloat a free-silver
bill, who have to vote for or against honest
money in the House, snd yet yon can't make
these candidates say where they now stand on
that Issue. What faith can you put In the
promise of a man who dares not make any
Promise on the subject for rear or losing votes ?
appeal to the people of this State, to Iho peo
ple of this city, of- this district, not only as a
New Yorker, but as an American. I appeal
to you on btate issues, and I appeal to you
on national Issues, too. You cannot. If
you would, vote only on Htate Issues this fall.
You have got to vote on both. Yon have a
United States Henatorshlp at stake. You have
to determine if you will send to the Senate
s man who shall represent the great Ktn

or whether you will send one who will

issues 011 which 1 could touch. I ask your
votes for the cause for which our ticket stands,

Boron RIDERS OF FREMONT.
Seven houses were counted in sight of the
rear platform when the train stopped ut Han
kins. Out along the winding road on whioh
farmers of the town of Fremont come down to
the railroad station were sixty mounted men,
lacing the train. They bore five or six big ban
ners, with such inscriptions ns this: "The
Rough Riders of Fremont greet tho Rough
Rider of Santiago." and "We are rough and
tough, but all are ready on the 8th of Novem
ber to vote tor Teddy."
Cant. Albert Holcomb. who commanded n
company through the civil war. was nt the
head or this unique turnout. He arose In his
stirrups and called for three cheers lor the next
Governor, and his men. rising in their stirrups,
wnved over their neads tho pitchforks and hay
rakes with which they were armed and nearly
split their throats In responding. A platform
hud been built beside the track for the speak
ers. Dr. Depew and Col. Roosevelt mounted It.
Dr. Depew waved his arm at the rough riders
and they answered him with a cheer. Then he
bowed to the 20ti men ami women who were
gathered about the platform
" Hough riders of tho town of Fremont," he
said, "I have no doubt that had you been with
Col. Roosevelt nt Santiago you would have
fought as well as his men did there. A rough
rider Is the proper man lo address rough
riders. I introduce Col. Roosevelt."
After a word or two thanking tho Fremont
horsemen for the compliment they had paid
him, and telling them that It was out of just
such material that his regiment was made up,
K " What can you expect, my friends, from a
party which will not allow Its candidate to

The train pulled out ns soon as Col. Roose

indignation the story of the way the eight
Democratic candidates for Congress in New
York dodged the sliver issue when they were
questioned last Saturday.
ANVIL SALUTE AT HANCOCK.
Between 4(X) and 500 people were assembled
at the llttlo town of Hancock, way up nbovo the

most part, who had come In from near by vil

Everybody in the orowd jumped about four

didn't even turn his head. He simply laughed.
"Look out. Colonel," yelled somebody,
"they're after you I"
"They won't scare me thnt way," answered
the Colonel. "Not o bit," nnd the proceedings
paused while the crowd cheered.
" I am glad to see here." Col. Roosevelt con
tinued, "several men wearing the button ot
the opposite party. I wonder whnt they think
of a Governor who doesn't dure mention the
name ot Willlnm Jennings Bryan In his
speeches Tor retr he will lose votes."
The men with the Van Wyck buttons looked
very glum. Not one ot them opened hi-, mouth,
hut the rest of the crowd had lots of fun with
"Now. gentlemen." continued the Colonel.
"I am not afraid to tell you for whom I voted
at the last election. I voted for William McKln
lcy and national honor." ICheers. I
As Col. Roosevelt concluded his speech he
leaned out on the western side of the car. so
that his face was in the full sunlight The near
by roofs and the high places In the rear of the
crowd rattled with the click of the cameras that
had been waiting for the chance to catch him.
For two minutes before the train started he
shook hands with as many people ns could
reach him. while Mr. Depew reminded the
crowd that when he wns In Hancock two yeais
ago there had been a Democrat in the nudieuce
who had amused himself by denying every
thing that the orator said. The people laughed
They remembered It.
"When I said that the election of McKlnley,"
said Mr Depew. "would bring prosperity he
yelled 'No, It won't.' When 1 said that the

A yell went up and roared along the moun

echoes, ns had tho anvil shot a tew minutes
A CBOWD AT PORT DEPOSIT.
About 1.200 auditors greeted the train at
Port Doposit. Hero, too, a stand had been
erected out In the middle of the railroad yards,
just under the shadow of a great water tower.
From every point in the yard from which it
was jH-isalble to get a good look at the people on
the stand men anil women were crowded
together so close that they could not
move their elbows without discomfort.
The top of the big water tower nearest the
stand wss covered with people at every possi
ble perch. It was a noisy crowd and was sjm
cially affectionate in lis greeting to the Hon.
Chntineey M. Depew. Col. Roosevelt made ono
of his simplest and most direct speeches on
the issues ot the campaign, as he has thought
them out with such thoroughness and clear
ness that there can be little variation in the
expression. Once more he tola them that
he believes that the honest and courage
ous can v.-as a more vuliml lo citiy.cn than

They waited until his train stopjs-d and the

swsraaed over the buck platform and
every square foot witbiu. a radius of thirtv
paces. They yeilsd for a speech, but not until
Col. Roosevelt had been told that many of them

OBBAT CTIOWD AT HI VllHAMTON.
Blnghajnton was chock full of people when
the trnln arrived. There were several thou
sand at tne station, so msny In fsct
thnt It was Impossible for sny of the speak
ers to rsaoh them with tholr voices, Every
body said that blnghajnton bad done
wonderfully to turn out so many, but in tho
meantime the streets of Blnghamton, and es
pecially those pear the Court House, wore filled
with people who believed that Col. Roosevelt was
to sneak there. It had been arranged that the
train should stop only ten minutes in Blng
hamton. snd it was out of the question for
the party to journoy up to the Court.
House. Judge Olcott and one or two others left
the train and went up to the Court House. Col.
Roosevelt and Dr. Depew talked t the crowd
from the rear platform. The people on the
outskirts of the crowd demonstrated very
clearly thst although they could not
hear they were perfectly able to con
tinue cheering a long a sny one
would lead them. They were assisted In tho
Inndnblo purtsise of making theutmost of their
enthusiasm by three separate and Individual
brass hands. Col. Roosevelt addressed them
on the necessity for honesty In political affairs.
Referring to the Democratic party, ho ssld:
" Look whst they have done with the judiciary
In the city of New York. They have turned
downono of their Democratic Judges Judge
Daly because for twenty-eight years he has
been an upright Judge, because ho has refused
to bow the knee to Bnal. Judge Daly Is run
ning for the Supreme Court. I beg you never
to fsrget thst it is the Supremo Court of the
Htnte and not ot the city. Our opponents dare
to appeal to you to support them on the ground
that they will be honest in administering the
State Government. We have seen them tried
In New Y'ork city. Judge them by that perform
ance. They stand for the corrupt government
of New York city. Assuredly then you csnnot
trust them for one moment when they say they
will be - honest In governing the State.
Dr. Depew rolloweri. and then the train wa
switched over on the Delaware. Lsckawanna
and Western Railroad and ran up to Cortland.
CORTLAND DOES WILD.
It' has been alleged down In New York
county that there is not thst enthusi
asm in Cortland for Col. Roosevelt as
a candidate that there should be. That
He was nailed this afternoon. The towp
of Cortlsnd went wild. There were between
800 and 1,000 people at the station to cheer the
Colonel and his friends from their train Into
their carriages. Preceded by a hand and ac
companied hy the people who had wel
eomed them the visitors went uptown
In glorious triumph to the rink, where
there were alresdy 1.200 people Inside
nnd almost as many outside. The cheering
and shouting were continuous. Those about
Col. Roosvelt had to do their utmost to keeii
him from being pulled out of the carriage bod
ily. Those of tho crowd who were outside of
the big hall were enticed by the aid of a band
awnv from the entrance of the rink to another
hall, and they were told Col. Roosevelt was to
speak there also. The second hall Immedi
ately filled up and still there were people
enough outside to have filled the third. Col.
Roosevelt talked to all of them before he got
through. He kept very close to the line of the
other speeches lie had delivered during the
day in order to save himself for an extra effort
While hews speaking in the Rink a man
with a great big foghorn voice shouted out:
" How about that Oyster Bay Incident 1"
" What do yon mean?" naked the Colonel.
"Why, you know the Oyster Bay incident."
shouted the msn ngsin.
"1 think." said Col, Roosevelt, "that you
have learned your lesson very well. 1 guess
you refer to the tax matter. I am very
glad to have the chance to answer you.
On March 25 last, when I was work
ing night and day to get ready the
fleets with which Dewey fought at Manila and
Sampson at Santiago (cheering long contin
ued!, when I was raising my regiment, one
fourth of whom were wounded or killed on
Cuban soil, and one-half of the remainder
brought to death's door, or beyond, by fever
loheersl. I took the pains to write, both to
my lawyer and to tho man who had charge of
ray business while I was at the war, that they
would see that my taxes were paid cither
in New Y'ork or Ovster Bar. i Applause 1
Owing to the death of my uncle they were not
Enid in Oyster Bay, where they should have
een. and as soon as I found out this on going
home, I directed that. In accordance with the
Instructions in my letter of March 25, they
should be paid at once at New York, and they
were paid there on the first day when It was
legally tiossibie to pay them."
The audience was all on Its feet cheering
wildly. The man with the foghorn voice had
nothing more to say, but tho crowd could not
get over the way the Colonel had turned him
down, and continued to sheer him for, some
time before Mr. . McDonough and the other
speakers could have a chance to be heard.
FBOM CORTLAND TO ELMII1A.
Followed by the same noisy demonstrations
of enthusiasm tho party went back to the train
and started for Owego by way of Blnghamton.
The long day had not visibly told on Col. Roose
velt's vitality, but inasmuch as the train was
considerably behind then, he limited his
speeches nt Owego and Waverly to a few words
or appreciation for the way In whioh the people
had turned out to meet him, although It -was
after dark. At Waverly. which Is almost alto
gether a railroad city, there was a tremendous
gathering of working men. Tho time which the
Colonel had intended to save by making a
short speech there was not. saved, for tho
simple reason that every time he opened his
lips they cheered and yelled so that his few
words were spread over the full time originally
allotted for the stop there.
Dr.. Depew ssld to the men of Waverly: "I
sm told that the population ot this town Is
only 5.000. Certainly there is nobody left ut
home. I would like to know where the rest of
this crowd came from." And then he repeated
to them the arguments he had laid before the
men at Port Jervls and ut Susquehanna.
It is not likely that any candidate will look
out on a more picturesque audience this
fall. For some reason the electrlo lights
near the station were out of order.
The only Illumination was that of
a great gasoline flare. As far as It
threw its flickering yellow rays the streets
were seen to he filled with the Upturned eager
faces of hard working, earnest men. who wore
ready and eager to applaud every word that
came from the candidate's lips.
Tit HIE BII HEETINOS AT ELUIBA.
El intra was reached at s little after 8 o'olock.
Three big meetings had been going on for al
most an hour. John Proctor Clarke and ex
Cominlssloner Sheffield hail gone on ahead
from Blnghamton 10 keep things going
until the late special arrived. Both the
Lyceum and Globe theatres were packed with
people long before 8 o'clock. The streets for
block lifter block were so filled with such a
crowd thst it was with the utmost difficulty
that ths carriages bringing the party from
iho station could make their way to the
theatres. Of course there were brass bands
and rod. white and blue fire set out in blazing
pots a hundred feet apart all through that part
of the town through which Cob Roosevelt
passed. Col. Roosevelt Introduced Into his
spoooli at the Lyceum an extended discussion
of the Raines law. He said:
" A great deal hug been said against the
present excise tax law. We have a Htate
of seven or eight millions of popula
tion, of w.deiy divergent Interests, of
widely divergent principles and of widely
divergent pn indices I do hot expect
thorn will ever be an excise tax law that will be
entirely satisfuctorp. Mr. tllndstoue remarked
that alter fifty years' experience he had never
been able to draw up an excise tax satisfactory
to tho masses. There are several features in
which I would like to see the present law
allien. led Hut us Abraham Lincoln ssld. you
have to tlo not the best, but the best possible
We ban- to get the best excise law it is possible
to get. The present law is far better than any
of our Democratic, opponents have protKised to
put on lb. -statute books. The predtcessorot the
present law Ilisd a good deal to do with my
self. It was prolific of blackmail. It put
a premium on blackmail : It could not be In
loieed Tammany threatens to return tothat
systeni if given the power. The present
law has done away absolutely with the
opportunity for blsakmall by excise boards.
It has done away largely with tho op
portunity of blaukmai by tho police.
It has removed most of the sources of
corrupt ion open lo politicians. It has done
away hugely with drunkenness. It has pro
duced nine million dollars a year, of which
nearly half goes to the Htato und the rest
Sacs to Hie county. 1 want you to
link how those nine million dollars will be
raised It you do away with these revenues
raiding leutures of the Excise law. It must be
raised some way, and the iwople who will pay
It will be the farmers, the mechanics and the
working people Think ol that when you hear
tile Excise law attacked. Just a k what they
will put In its place and how they will
praise the It.OOo.Doo thst has got tobu
laisul if the present law is done swsy with. If
that law is reiiealed your Htate Um from
other sources will have to bs msde hair a

tion of taxation to be considered. Ot late years
there ha sprung up a system of creating many
new commissions and new otooes in the

If I am elected Governor one at
ths things 1 will do Is to carefully
cut dut all of these offices and com laslon that
have outlived their usefulness, if thoy ever had
any and hare thorn abolished. In thl way
much money could b saved to the taxpayers."
Col. Roosevelt will spesk st three big meet

derstood, will hsve even more to say about tho
Raines law. , 1

"THE TAMMANY TIGERS."
A SHOW IS TtMOTHT DRY DOLLAR
SULLIVAN'S CONCERT MALL.
Women Eahlblted In Hhameful Degradation
on the StagsOne Undresses In a Cage
with a Symbolical Croker Beast-Other
Appear In Close Imitation of Nudity.
The Dewey Theatre is a big concert hall
opened lately In East Fourteenth street, di
rectly opposite Tammanv Hall. Timothy Dry
Dollar Bulltvan. the Tammany politician. Is Its
manager. He holds one of those Tammany
Invisible licenses under whioh the laws to
regulate theatres are broken bracenly. not
only in the sale of Intoxicants while dramatic
performances are in progress, but far more
flagrantly in the indecent exhibition of wo
men in imitation ot nudity. Hr. Sullivan's
show for the current week, as given for the
first time yesterday, was stngularlr pertinent
to the political campaign. Perhaps It wss his
proud testlmonlsl of gratitude and esteem.
Anyway. It was a demonstration whioh had an
Illustrative bearing upon affairs Involved in :he
oanvass. Mr. Bulllvan called it "The Tam
many Tigers." The women who figured In it
were members of one of those travelling oom
panles that seldom get nearer to Broadway
than Eighth avenue or the Bowery, and some
others added in order to Increase the lot and
It exploits to Tammany proportions. The
play bill had a full-page appeal to "vote tba
Democratic ticket." There were portraits of
Augustus Tan Wyck and Elliot Danforth. with
the explanation In Dig type that their election
as Governor and Lieutenant-Governor would
"Insure an honest and economical adminis
tration." Other lines yelled "Rah-rah-rah 1"
The entertainment which Timothy Dry Dol
lar Sullivan provided with so much hurrah for
Tammany began with an extravaganza. The
first words spoken were an unprintable jest
and, the very next speaker uttered an even
worse one. the nature of which cannot be sug
gested to polite readers. An equally nasty bal
lad followed., Then came a different kind
of offence a sonar extolling Admiral Dewey
in ungramtnalical doggerel and impudently
nominating him In such a place for the Presi
dency of the United Ktates. Right after that
a familiar "coon" song was given with Its lines
so altered as to convey indecent meanings, and
these were Illustrated by lascivious sotlon.
Profanity and obscenity abounded in the wit
less stuff. Twelve women and four men were
employed. The women were as scant of
comeliness as they were of raiment. The
ugliest of them possessed the very small
amount of female falent shown, and the sev
eral good-looking onea were devoid of the
smallest aptitude for the stage. They changed
their costumes to represent soldiers, sailors
and nurses in Cuba. The men were such ar
tistically worthless "comedians" as can be
hired to assist in the publio degradation of the
other sex in Immoral shows, but who. In spite
of the audacity, slink and shirk In a way to
prove that they are ashamed of themselves.
That play was called "Columbia Forever," and
It ended with pictures of the war and a display
A second piece was entitled "McNulty and
the Model," and its feature was an undressing
act. The poor creature debased to nubile
view came In as an applicant for employment
as a poser "In the altogether." Two other
characters were a wanton French girl and her
paramour, who conspired to sell the model to
an amorous Frenchman, pret muling that she
was 'a mechanical figure. There were some
more nasty songs and brazenly-lewd dances,

Tigers" waa meant to be triumphantly sym
bolical of Croker's campaign. Three lion In
a uage atood for the tigers of Tammany. One
waa a bis-, handsome male, whose temiier
sssmed to be of the best snd who looked too
proud and noble to be awsre of the misuse
that was being made of him. The others wsre
sleek, snarling snd seemingly vicious females.
A woman known ss Adgle entered the den.
armed only with a small whip, and put ths
dauaerous beasts through a lot of tricks.
Her bravery was remarkable, but even that
had to be prostituted to harmonize with the
rest of the entertainment. Hhe wa made to

urement with Mis lion, to caress and kis hini
as though he were a msu. nnd finally to lie
down In feigned sleep in his embrace. Hhe
and that lion were to be pitied for having to
represent two of "The Tsmmany Tigers."
