terests of the; people, could have .lone le's
tl.nn nii-e iu voice and demand a halt.
Partially in response to an appeal mado
by the Kaole, and urged to action by the
notorious outrage being committed, and
an impending danger, a large number of
busines-. men, without any regard to party,
moved by on.; common impulse, met togeth
er night before lat and resolved that there
should be an end to the higli-handed out
rage so long permitted in our mid,t. AVi-h-iug
to do nothing rashly the mayor and some
of the city council were sent for, when
a prominent property holder, speaking for
the meeting, recited their gricvance-,and then
proflciing their co-operation, atked if im
mediate action would not 1m-taken to rid
the city of these threatening elements. The
mavor, answering for hi- administration,
said the demand wi icasonable; that the
officers of the city would like the co-operation
of the citizens' committee, and that if
the select committee would meet him the
tieit fxesterdav) lnorning
at lime o clock
active and efficient measures would bo taken
to complv with the strong desire exprc-scd.
The facts, together with what we pub
lished ve-tcrday morning, wo get from a-.
r.-liablemcn ak this city afford-, men not
active in politics, and men whos word can
not be gniimycd or impeached.
Now, for the result, and we say, let e cry
man draw his conclusions.
The mayor nor tha city council, nor any
one for them, fulfilled the appointment, uor
was a single move made by either the mayor
or city council to co-operate with
the citizen's commitU-.- or to do the work
demanded. Hut upon the other hand, the
Beacon, which is tho official paper or the
city, denounced this move upon the part of
honest, honorable m?n as -political scull
duggery," a '-dodge and a trick," ft 'Shal
low maneuver deserving severe criticism,"
winding up with an insult by as-crting that
thescsamo men would swarm tho city with
deputy U. S. Marshals and vote-pcrMiading
bull-d'og pi.stol.. To the I'.AOi.K.-; charges
that the city administration wetc clearly

for your party."
Again last night a portion of the sp-ciai
committee upon tho part of the citizens
meeting, waited upon the editor of this pa
per. They were of the unanimous
opinion "that nothing was to be
expected and that many of the lawless
men, dead-beaf and pads h-id either regis
"tcred or were representing men who had
heretofore registered and gone and that they
would bo protected until after the election.
That any of their votes will bo cast for the
Jtcpublicaii party the Beacon nor its bosso
for ono moment expect. The special com
mittee are further convinced that thugs and
roustabouts have come in here from Kansas
City, Dodgo City and all along the line, and
that the appointment of the extra policemen
had no reference to tho better preservation
of life and property, but that such extras
were appointed for other and evidently po
litical reasons. For our own part we will
not pretend to tay, but will leave even" hon
est man to draw hi own conclusion-.
What further to advise we aro at a loss,
except we would urge the committee of
business men to keep up, and perfect their
-organization, as soon a possible.
Vith tho city authorities refusing to drive
out these men yea with a member of the
x-ity council standing about our stieets and
applying low Hiid vile names to tho men
-who compose the citizen's committee, of
course there "i " prospect that anything
will bo done immediately. Without the co
operation of those who have been put in
power it would be difficult except at the
muzzle of a shot gun to drive out a single
thief though fully identified. Keep up the
organization until business men can go
home at night without danger, and until
our wives and children am retire to their
bed without alarm and sleep in security.
We learn that one of our milkmen had his
pocket cut open and his pocket-book stolen
in the opera bouse last night, while the
crowd was leaving-the hall. The necessity
for immediate and vigorous measures to rid
tho city of thieves is becoming more and
more urgent every day.
What are the Republican going to do
for Monday night! Can't we havo one more
meeting and ono more demonstration in

own nominees and local speakers. If any
thing is to be done the matter must be de

THE CATHOLIC FAIR.
Last night tho rink was packed with a
vast throng of humanity, who were surging
to and fro, chatting pleasantlv and inspect
ing the great variety of valuable and hand
some articles on "exhibition, and taking
chances on the articles which will bo rallied
to-d.iv: There were probably livo hundred
people present, notwithstanding the Kepub
lican meeting at the opera hou-e, which at
tracted a large number there who would
otherwi.-c have been at tho rink. There was
some excellent vocal and instrumental en
tertainments given during the early part of
the night, and all present seemed to enjoy
themselves. The poll-, for voting articles to
the choice of candidate-, closed early in the
night, and stood as follows:

MORTAR FOR TWO.
A new span of mules weiecelerday being
broken in by the ?lr-et car company to do
service upon that line of road. They were
Mimewhnt fractious and rebclious, and
when at the Douglas avenue terminus of the
line, thev were unhitched, in order that they
might bo attached to the reverse end of the
car, they mado a sudden dash and succeeded
in getting away from tho driver. Being free,
with nothing "to encumber them save a set
of whitile-trees, and the-u urging them ou
bv pounding their heels, they struck a get-up-and-go
gait that sent them up tho aenuc
in a st vie that would highly pleaso an old
turfman. Though there were many teams
and vehicles upon tho street, they steered a
faultles couri-c and had clear sailing, until
they attempted, in froi.t oftlie Illack block,
to pull over into the coiirso of an omnibus.
For a moment it looked as though a collision
was inevitable, and the spectators stood
aghast with apprehension and fear, but with
a sudden Hank movement tho long-eared
livers so changed their course that they
cleared the ponderous 'bin, but plunged
into a bed of mortar that was in their
course. This seemed to humiliate them
considerably and put a damper on their ar
dor, as from this point they moved at a
much more moderate gait, though they con
tinued to show their mule obstinacy by go
ing on to water street, and down that to the
river, where they were captured. That they
should pass for such along distance through
a well liiled thoroughfare without colliding
with something is remarkable. As it was,
nothing mom resulted ot the little dash than
n coat of mortar and two pairs of poundrd

Blaine In Now York.
Xew York, Oct. 31. At the business
men's meeting this afternoon in Chickering
hall, Senator Sherman delivered an elabo
rate address. At the conclusion of his re
marks, Mr. Blaine came upon the stage. His
appearance was the signal for a very cntliu
siastie demonstration, which lasted some
minutes. 'When silence was restored, he
Business men of New York : I deem it
an honor to follow rlcnator Sherman. I
deem it an especial honor to follow Secreta
ry Sherman, for I can say that in our finan
cial history ho takes rank among tho really
illuEt'ious men who have administered tho
treasury department of tho United States.
It was the cood fortune of Mr. Hamilton to
organize that department with his masterly
ability and place tho credit of tho young re
public upon an enduring basis. It was the
good fortune of Alexander J. Dallas to carry
tho finances oftlie jovernmcDt through the
embarrassments resulting from the war of
1812. It was tho good fortune of Win. II.
Crawford, after the great depression that fol
lowed our victorious struggle, to revive the
national credit bv the protective tariff of
1824. It was tho good fortune of Thomas
Kwing, after tho great Whig victory of
1840, to initiate those measures which gave
us the protective tariff of 18G2. It was the
good fortune of Salmon 1. Chase to carry
the government through all the extraordina
ry crisis which were precipitated bv the civil
war, and it was the good fortune of the third
eminent citizen ot Uluo, Jonn Mierman. to
ead the nnt on back to tho sound basis of

speciu payment, and it was singularly
in tho career of
Mr. Sherman that in tlie
legislative department ho was permitted to
sliune tlie resuniDtion act, and in the execu
tive department to administer its provision',
and earn- it to a successful issue. That re
sumption act is a continuing blessing and
benefit to this country. It has placed the
government finances and tho finances oftlie
people upon a stable foundation. I am sure
that from tho brief history that I have ven
tured to submit tho transition is easy to tho
duty of tlie people in the impending national
contest. If tho resumption act, the greatest
of financial measures of which it was tho
fitting climax, bo a benefit to tho business
interests of this country, the political influ
ence of the business "men of the country
should certainly be given to the party
which originated and enforced that legisla
tion. There is no need for me, before the
business men of New York, to supplement
the argument which I am suro Mr. Sherman
has made complete and I should hardly have
dared to gic myself tho pleasure of appear
ing hero but formy desire to testify in this
great metropolis of the Union my apprecia
tion of your distinguished guest's service,
and while I am here I may bo permitted to
add that not alone in the financial andbusi
ness department of legislation, which inter
ests every man, but in all tho great avenues
of life in all that relates to tho career of a
great people, the twenty-three years during
which the Hepublican party has been in
power are certainly distinguished beyond
any equal jwriod in our history, saving and
excepting alone tho immortal period which
gave us our independence and our constitu
tion. At no time, certainly, havo the educa
tional interests of the people been so great
and so rapidly advanced; at no time have
the spirit of" humanity and the benevo
lence of the people "been so gcnerously
developed as during that period;
at no time, certainly, has
Christian charity made so marked and ad
vance as during'the period in which the Re
publican party has administered the govern
ment; at no time within the memory of any
onc who does the honor to ine has there been
so Iittlo bigotry in the country as there is to
day; at no previous time has there been an
occasion ot great public interest relating to
the fate of the government in which upon
the same platform and for thesame patriotic
end, has tlierc been such cordial and hearty
co-operation as there now is among the
great religious denominations Protestant,
Catholic and Hebrew. Certainly that U the
great consummation which a republic
pledged to civil and religious liberty should
aim at, and it will remain tho lasting glory
of the Republican party that, that consum
mation has been achiced during its broad
and liberal administration of tho national
When Mr. Blaine sat down there were
calls for Mr. Kvarts, who respouded in a
short and humorous speech. Fremont was
called out and spoke briefly.
From the hall Mr. Blaino returned di
rectly to his hotel where ho received callers
until" dinner time. Later he reviewed the
great torchlight procession.
The parad'c in honor of James G. Blaine
to-night is considered tho greatest public
demonstration of tho kind that ever took
place. Tho night was unpropititious for
such an affair. Tho rain fell in a drizzle
most of the time and the streets were cov
ered with a slimy mud that made marching
difficult. The enthusiasm of tho legions,
paraders and world of people who blocked
tlie sidewalks was not to bo quieted by an
untoward action of tho elements. Tho right
of tho column rested on Fiftx -fourth street
and Fifth avenue and the line of march was
down the avenue, past the reviewing stand,
near Worth monument. Tho streets on
both sides of the aeuuc were mado bright
with nil kinds of lights and illuminating
powers, and tho natural darkness of
thu night was unnoticcablo in the district,
covering many miles. A few minute be
fore 10 Mr. Blaine came from the Fifth Ave
nue hotel ann in arm with Gen. Lloyd Af
pinwall and made his wiy to that portion of
tlm it-mil. a sort of kiosk, he was to occupy.

came the insurance men, the old guard of
1876 and war veterans, with the bar associa
tion, and the Blaine and Logan clubs
brought up the rear. This division was a
batterv headed by a transparency inscribed,
"Black Jack's Grammar at Shiloh," and in
the rear a formidable piece of camion
which made Mr. Blaine and all the
other spectators laugh heartily.
Among the visiting delegations
was one from Saginaw, Michigan. The ap
plause of the night, after Mr.Blaine,scemedto
be observed for the John J. O'Brien associa
tion. O'Brien is chairman of the Republi
can county committee, and everybody seem
ed to unite in cheering him and them. The
procession was a succession of splendors and
surprises, and was pronounced well worth
traveling from Saginaw to tee. It was very
late when the last corps passed the stand,
vet Mr. Blaino remained to the close, seem
ingly one of the best pleased of the specta
tors. The Irisli.American band, the colored
corps, the boys in blue, ine veserans ana an
the other separate bodies were saluted by
the Gilmoro with special airs as they passed
the stand. Tho Irish heard "Garry Owens,"
the colored men a selection from "Africaine,"
the boys in blue, "Marching through Geor
gia," and the veterans "Home Again." The
music, like the procession, was one of ever
varying character, and no spectator seemed
to realize that 1 o'clock had long since pass
ed when a bar of "Home, Sweet Home' an
nounced to all that the end had come. All
tho country about contributed its quota of
I.vwax.u-olis, Ind., Oct. 31. General
Logan and party arrived in this city this
morning at 7:30". General Logan was at
once driven to the residence of J C. Xew,
where he was entertained during his stay in
the city. All tho public buildings and
many of tho business houses were elaborate
ly decorated in honor of the visitor and
many visitors arc in tho city. The demon
stration was participated in by local clubs,
but the arrangements were specially in
chargo of old soldier-, who were present in
JyDiAJ.Ai-oi.is, Ind., Oct. 31. About 1WM
General Logan wii serenaded at the Deni
son House bv political clubs, accompanied
by bands. The crowd was very large and
enthusiastic. General Logan spoke very
briefly, merely returning thanks for the
demonstration in his honor.
The procession was late in forming, and
after tho organization some delay was had
in awaiting the arrival of General Logan,
who was escorted from Mr. New's residence
by tho reception committee headed by
Mayor McMaster. The procession, while
not'the largest, was the finest, and present
ed the best appearance of any ever witnessed
in the citv. Ijgan was close to the head
of tho column. Ho was warmly received by
the spectators, and while the applause was
not continuous, it was generous and some
what suontaneou-i. Several thou-and
people iiad assembled in circle park
awaiting tho arrival of the procession. Gen
eral Logan arrived at thy park about 3
o'clock. Hu was introduced by Senator
Harrison. Logan spoke about an hour and
a half, demoting the principal portion of his
remarks to Mr. Hendricks, making a strong
argument in favor of tariff and exposing the
fallacy of Mr. Hendricks' assertions concern
ing tlie surplus in the treasury. In the
course of his remarks General Logan said:
"I want to now say a word to these toldiers.
I do not want to appeal tothem in a politi
cal speech, but now desiro to say that I
wish to God I could take each and every
one of you by the hand, but you must take
tho wifl for the deed. We arc all growing
old. A few more years and wo will bo be
neath the sod, and there will not be a soldier

I cannot understand. When we i-re all
gone, when we lie beneath these little
mounds that aro above our bodies, people
who come and cast flowers upon those little
mounds in remembrance of the deeds you
have performed will not be your enemies.
Those are tho ones to rely "on. Histories
that are written of your heroism will have

for stagnation of business, and severely crit

Burned at Sea.
New Yobk, Oct. 31. Tho German steam
er, Rhein, which arrived hero to-day from
Bremen, reports that on October 24th, at 7
o'clock in the erening, in latitude 49 degrees
28 minutes, longitude 27 degrees 41 minutes,
she fell in with the Dutch steamer 3Iiwdam,
from Rotterdam, for Xew York, which
was all ablaze. She took from her boats
the passengers and crew, numbering 168 in
all, and brought them here.
The steamship Rhein arrived at her dock
soon after 3 o'clock with all the passengers
and crew of the steamer JAaasdam. Hun
dreds of relatives and friends of the passen
gers of the lot ship awaited them. Capt.
H. C. Vanderzeo, of the ill-fated vessel, said
to a renorter: "We had eieht cabin
and 133 steerage passengers and a crew of
lorty-nvo men. J-or several cays prior 10
24tli, complaints had been made rne that the
oil tank, situated under tho bridge on the
upuer deck was leaking. That day one of
my -eatnen went with a light to mako an ex
amination. A moment afterward and ex
plosion was heard and tho sailor, with
a burned face and beard rushed back on the
deck crying "Fire!" Wo put into use all
our appliances for extinguishing tho flames,
but they gained headway. Then we took to
boats. "We could save nothing of the cargo
or private property. Only the very clothes
we stood in could we take away with us.
There was a heavy sea running at tho timo.
The passengers made little or "no confusion.
I think thc-were too much frightened and
justly so" to do anything, but obey
orders. The Rhein pickc"d us up soon after
9 o'clock." All others on board agree
with tho captain's story. Tho surgeon said
that three of the engineers wero severely
burned by fire, but would come around all
right. Bruns Pcterman, first officer of the
Rhein, was the man to spy what he thought
to be a firo away in the distance and
climbed to the top "of tho masthead to make
it out. It .seemed to be a steamship on fire
about ten miles to south. Tho Rhein was
promptly headed for the light. The Rhein
took about ono hour to get to it.
The flames lit up the sea for
five miles around. The signal
lights in the boats were soon seen, and as
the boats got alongside ropes were let down
and the people hauled on board. The wo
men and children had to be taken up in
baskets. "Tho sea was very rough," said
Mr. Petcrman, "and a severe storm came
up at midnight. Had we been two hours
later in getting to the burning ship not a
soul of theMaasdam's passengors or crew
would have been saved. '

Salt Lake Citt, Utah, Oct, 31. The
Connelly polygamy caso was dismissed this
afternoon by tho " United States attorney,
who said tho testimony diflercd so radically
from that before tho grand jury that he was
astonished. Tho most glaring perjuries had
attended the evidence here given. Judge
Seane said to the jury: "I regrot to say I
am of the opinion and have an nbiding con
viction that tho ends of justice have been
defeated in this case by false swearing. I
hopo never to seo it again in this court or
anv other. In view of the evidence the
court instructs you now to find a verdict of
not guilty." The judge spoke in a yerv
earnest and impressive manner, being af
fected nearly to tears.

Polls Next Tuesday.
Washi.vqtox, D. C. Oct. 31. Represen
tatives Milliken and Stewart, oi the commit
tee on expenditures of the department of
justice, have signed a minority report on an
investigation by that commftteo at the last
session, of the urosecution of the star route
frauds. The report is written bv Milliken in
the first person, and reads as follows:
The late period at which the majority re
port is presented lor my approval, wuii an
intimation that my assent or dissent must be
signified within less than a week, prevents
me, amid other engagements, from express
ing my views as iuiiy as 1 would use. l
cannot" at all treat of "the omissions in tho
report, and can only refer to one or two
direct statements. There i an apparent de
sire to insinuate, without stating it, that
Bliss, one of tho counsel, did not place before
the grand jury fully as ho might, evidence in
what aro "known as tho Salisbury
and Parker case, but the mere fact
that the briefs of evidence made up
by Bliss for the grand jury, and presented
to the committee with his endorsement, to
show that he did present all pertinent evi
dence which was then available to the gov
ernment, fully disposes of this insinuation.
It was certainly not Bliss' fault that the pro
posed arbitrations were not proceeded with.
The government argued tho proceedings be
fore a tribunal, of w hich two of three mem
members were selected by itself, and which
was authorized to receive" such evidence as
they chose, and to decide by a majority vote
without criticising this action and recogniz
ing tho forco of the legal reasons by which
it is justified. It is .sufficient to sav that
Bliss was certainly pot responsible for tho
failure of the proposed arbitration. There
is great force in his claim tliat the govern
ment could not have been prejudiced bv the
proceedings, at leat till the other side ob
jected. I am not quite sure whether the
majority intend to insinuate any
thing against Elmer, one of tho
proposed arbitrators. His record as
second assistant postmaster general should
preent such an attempt. Tho majority re
port gives some space to tho disagreement
between witnesses as to whether it was rep
resented to tho grand jury in June, 1882,
that Price would come "before them as a
witness. Without undertaking to reconcile
the discrepancies, I suggest that it arises on
a mere eido issue; that all witnesses to this
point were obviously siucerc and intended
to be truthful, and that thcro is no dispute
that there was presented to that grand jury
all the evidence which the government then
had under its control. Tho gingerly man
ner in which tlie majority treat tin-extraordinary
witness, "Walsh, and the statement
they gave, the nature of Kellogg' own testi
mony may, perhaps, indicate that the ma
jority do not greatly diner from the grand
jurvl There are other statements in the re
port which I had intended to refer to.
Thev all gather about an obvious
attempt to throw discredit upon
one of the government counsel, an
attempt which I think has an answer in his
personal action and political activity, but
has no real support either in evidence before
the committee or in his standing in the com
munity. Indeed all the witnesses were ap
Imrentlv regarded by the majority hi relia
ble anil concur in ascribing entire good
faith to all counsel. It is possible, however,
that a Philadelphia gentlemen, whose ideas
of professional propriety surprised tho com
mittee, should so far us'his hnal conclusion
after his feelings were aroused.be consid
ered an exception to this remark. The Star
Koute frauds were undoubtedly enormous,
but tho prosecution was unsuccessful. This
want of success, seems to me to be ascribed
not to any want of earnestness, sincereity or
ability on the part of the prosecution, but
rather to the magnitude of interests involved
and to tlie deficiencies in the criminal stat
utes of the United States. However this
may be, the truth that the committee of con
gress, partisan or otherwise, is no better
adapted to supervise or criticize, the legal
campaign than it is to conduct the military.
One finds an apt illustration in the inade
quate and partial report of the majority.
Milliken has also appended to minority
report of committee concerning fees etc.
charged against the government by United
States marshals and other officers and de
partments, Justico gives an expression of
his individual conclusions. He fully con
curs with tho majority in recommending
abolition oftlie fee svtcm, btrt takes ground
that the assertions of the majority report are
too general and sweeping. They imply, he
says, wholesale corruption of marshals, dep
uty marshals and district attorneys and in
fer, without any testimony, corruption of
inpecton of election. This charge of gen
cral corruption he says is untrue of a
vast majority of Federal officers in
the district. "Investigations are honest and
faithful, and were not the oppressor of tho
people, unless the enforcement of tho wholi
nle law for the collection of the govern
ment's revniu-s, and to protect the rights of
citizens be called oppression. .MiliiKin lur
thcr asserts that iiiott of the officers com
plained of were required to execute federal
laws in a lawless country, where the viola
tion of elective franchise and frauds upon
the revenuo were sustained by al
most the entire communities, and
the low moral tone of their surround
ing. He denies tliat the testimony war
rants the charge that the administration p-
nointed men lor tw-ir incompciencv or uis-
honesty. but says it may have been unwUo
as it was certainly unfortunate in th ap
pointment of so man v who were not in po
litical sympathy with it, among whom a
found a' largo majority of these unfaithful
officials. He also compliment the oVpart
ment of justice for the work in theilftic
tion and prosecution of fraud.
To-dav the grand jury found an indict
ment against Colon-! "Burnsidet, late di
birsing"bffieer of tb postofiic- d-prtnient,
charging him with embezzling $sVtr000.
