The announcement that Col. John A.
Martin, Republican nominee for goernor oft
this stale, would addreM tho afternoon I
meeting at the opera bou-c, hud tho eilect of
urawing a vasi muiiuuuc ui jiwijhu 10 me

liegati to arrive and to throng about the en
trance. Svi.cn tho moment came for the
public to be admitted, enough at once
parsed in to comfortably fill the large house,
and ere the speaking" began, every scat.
down stairs and iu the gallery, was taken.
Then the (pace ujKjn the stugo was taken,
and the crouds filled the aisle., stood in the
doorway, tat in the windows and stood in
crowdupon the Mdcu.dk outside the build
ing. The stage Mas beautifully arranged, and
elegantly decorated and "presented a mot
hauiUonV and imposing appearance.
In the center and at the front ol the stage
was placed an arbor the posts or bupports
of which were iound with the national col
ors, and. upon the framework w.i woven
prigs of evergreen and garlands of thyme.
At one side of this pretty design was ar
ranged a largo picture of ltlaine, on the op
posite Logati, while at the pinnacle, there
looked out upon the good work the kindly
fac) of GarlieM.
On either side of this central figure uas
arranged potted plants and .lowers and at
tho sides and upon the stags the scene was
graced w ith tho immortal Washington and
file martyr, Lincoln.
In the background,, rich and beau
tifully draped curtains occupied
a place of honor, in the center of
which a large mirror shone forth,
upholstered chaire and center table graced
with covers f felt elvet and s-itiii and
wrought iu lund-nine lloue'rs and elegant'
designs in stitch-work and hand-painting,

At -.."iO tho speakers took their places
upon the platform and were received with a
cheer of welcome. Col. Stewart was made
chairman. Ho announced the arrang
ments for the day's speaking, and after a se
lection by the"'Kingman band, which was
finely rendered and heartily cheered, the
chairman introduced Col. John A. Martin.
At the mention of this name a cheer went
up that was deafening, and when order
had been restored, the gallant Col. said that ,
though ho had been addressing the poople
of Kansas for twentv-fivc year iu printed
word-, yet he had been apologizing for his
lack of experience as a public speaker; but
tho neee-suv for mmloirv was at an end, for

cause, as tho cheer of lictory from Ohio

before it and again carry tho banners to cer

(arly hour a steady stream of people fully

Young Men's Republican club when they
should return from the street parade. At

on the front seats of the center row. A few

of tremendous cheers which made the

Republicans had committed errors and mis
takes; that they had bad members; no party
had a monopoly of honest men, but because
they had a Brady and a whiskey ring that
was no reason "why the wh'olo party
shoulil be held accountable. Because
Judias had been recreant to his
trust that was no reason why the other
eleven apostles should be found guilty.
The financial legislation of tho Republican
party needed no vindication. He referred
to the action of tho Independents and said
that they were like the Oentilo of old who
cried out that he was holier than the
publicans and sinners. He scouted the idea
of such as they talking of running on moral
issues. Beforo the campaign had got well'
under headway their moral attitude was
slightly embarassed. It was not a Republi

terized tho stories about Blaine's great
wealth as ridiculous. Ho had no more than
any man of ability could have honestly ac
cumulated at his age; he never kept horses
or carriages in "Washington. He explained
the origin of the Mulligan letters, and said
Blaine iad read them to forty millions of
people. He then entered into" an eulogium
of Mr. Blaine, nnd said that demagogues
claimed to be fearful of his foreign policy;
that it might involve the nation in entang
ling foreign alliances or war. Blaine would
originate a distinctive American pol
icy; that under his administration
the public domain would be hold for
actual settlers to tho exclusion of foreign
monopolist. His political creed was the
American constitution; the American eagle
would perch upon his left shoulder. Ho
would not bo able to carry England, in fact it
was doubtful if ho could get tho electoral
vote of any country of Europe. Bismark
and Victoria would be compelled to cat
Kansas pork or we would know tho reason

comments of the southern pres-s eulogizing
the perpetrators of those dark deeds. He
said the Democrats had declaimed against
waving tho bloodv shirt, but he would con
tinue to exercise that privilege un
til etery man was us as safe
to vote his sentiments iu Copiah
as in Sedgwick countv. (Loud and contin
uous applau-c.) He explained how the
hemp industry had been killed in this coun
try how the taking off of the tariff on wool
had affected that industry.
Lack of space precludes the possibility of
following him through in all the details of
the tariff and other questions involved in the
campaign. His presentation of all the issues
involved was most complete and he was
listened to with tho greatest attention and
his arguments elicited repeated rounds of
hearty applau-c. He concluded in an elo
quent peroration at the end of which the
assembled multitude rose and almost rent
the hall with their cheers.
The rink was packed to tho doois in the
evening to hear tho speakers who were to
address the people at that place, though the
great center of attraction uas at the opera
house to hear Senator Ingalls.
Hon. John Kelly presided, anil intro

who publishes the "Wetern Recorder" and

that yesterday's election in Cincinnati was

manner, comparing it to the Mississippi pol

among saloon men on account of his opin

A Letter of Regret Read From Samuel
Xny York, Oct 15. Governor Cleveland
left Albany this morning, accompanied by
Daniel S. Laruont, his private secretary, and
Mayor Banks, of Albany. It was the ex
press wish of the governor that no demon
stration be made in his honor along the rotue.
At Poughkeepsie, however, a crowd assem
bled so Targe and enthusiastic, that ho was
induced to show himself to the assemblage a
few minutes, and he shook hands with all
who could reach him. At this point Sena
tor and Mrs. fcwbald boarded the train, and
the governor chattered pleasantly until Gar

composed of Senator Brrnum, chairman,
Abram S. Hewitt, Senator Gwinne, .1. W.
James. C. I- Campbell, H. B. Ligcter, J. B.
Coleman, Eugene Kelly, and Messrs. Greene
and Viuiderpool, met "tho Governor at tho
depot, and, after an exchange of greetings,
escorted him to a carriage, which he entered
iu company with Senator Barnumn and Col.
A crowd assembled outside of tho depot,
and when Gov. Cleveland made his appear
ance loud cheers were given which con
tinued until the carriages departed. Large
numbers of men rushed toward tne wagon
and held out their hamfc, which he grasped.
Several times after the carriage had started
the driver was ordered to stop his horses so
that the governor could satisfy the desires of
those who wished to shako his hand. The
party drove to the Fifth Aenue hotel,
where the governor alighted and Immediate
ly proceeded to his rooms. Quite a crowd
gathered outside of the hotel and gave
heartv cheers. On the arrival of the Demo
cratic" candidate, the rooms of th governor
were immediately besieged by political men
and reporters, who were anxious to get
word trom him or his secretary, but Mr.
Cleveland remained in his private room, to
which only a elcct few could gain access.

La"dies and gentlemen. I thank you tor
this kind reception, and I am sure ji is a
cause for congratulation that so many of the
business men of the great metropolis
have found a reason in the
nendinir political struggle for united and
earnest effort. It has been my firm belief
that one reason why we as a people do not
enjoy to the utmost the advantages ot our
form of government is found in the fact that
our business men are apt to neglect their
political duti&s. The idea is too common
among them that therp is a heroism and a
virtue in refusing to hold office, and the
stern denial of any interest in politics seems
to be regarded by" many of this class as tho
best as-crtion of their private virtue and
business. The protection and safety of the
interests thev have in charge and closely
connected with a wise administration of the
government, and it has always seemed
to m that if a regard for their
duty as citizens did not impel them to take
a more'sttive interest in Klitical affairs, the

During a greater portion of this time Sena

Ohio, he expressed himself as satisfied that
the Republican ticket would bo successful
by a good round majoriry. Mr. Maine's
presence in the country districts had awak

might bo considered doubtful. The senator
is looking well and remarked that he would

his services would bo required.
Although this is tho coldest night of tho
