initials of the Governors of the Terri

the wallH were Auks of many nations
and a banner reprtontinj each State

Hichiputi men. On his left sat Sen
ator Logan, Gov. Alger, Gov. Foraker,
ex-Gov. Jerome, Congressman Guen
ther and othcre. At 8 o'clock the
banqueter took their m-ata.
At V o'clock Senator Palmer called
the audience to order. Vocal music
wan furnished by the Arion (Quartette
of this city, in addition to band music.
In his introductory remarks Senator
Palmer explained the object of the
club, saying that Washington, if alive,
would probably bo present. He said,
it in composed of those who believe
that tho. Republican purty still has
work to do, terming it protH'rly "the
party of good and of morality. Or
ganised and nystcmntic t'Hbft must
supplement tho past enthusiasm of
tho party. He believed the last party
defeat was because the party did not
emphasize the moral issues. It is
necewairy to have more than the
tariff lubor question, or money.
New and inspiring principles are
needed. The great army of wage
workers must bo heard and tneir de
mands regarded. Their elevation
should ft; helped. He called the Demo
cratic party a "party of negations,
having no principles." He introduced
Gov. It. A. Alger, who, in a brief ad
dress, welcomed the distinguished
guosta of the evening, the mention of
each natno calling for hearty applause.
TUB IIO. WM. M. KVARTS
of New York responded to the toast,
"Washington, tlie Nationalist; the
Federal Union tho consummation of
his work." When t he storm of np
planse Kiilwided Mr. Kvarts returned
thanks for his reception and for being
included in tho number of those in
vited to participate in the exercises of
tho anniversary. The club, founded
inec the last national defeat, means
unavailing regret but determination
to make future success certain. The
presence hero of representatives of
tho sturdy Kcpublicanism of Mich
igan proved to him that there was
little ho could say, while thero was
much he could see. "The campaign
of the Republican party began on the
night of tho day which the Republican
party was defeated." Tho manly
fight made in nil States and under afl
conditions has brought later successes.
Since that campaign nothing has been
'luet snvo in tho State of New York,
where it can scarcely be called a de
feat. He paid : "New York is not cer
tain." Washington's greatness in his
life and chnrncter as louring on his
influences in onr government was his
subject. Ho did not claim the
fame of Washington as of one
part ol tho country. His charac
ter and fame will never be
disowned or dishonored by any
part of this or any other nation.
Other nations claim a share in the
honor which shines in all the people
of tho world, nevertheless the Ite
puhlicans can say that from the birth
of the party thero has never been a
stain on their character before the
world for any act of desertion or dis
honor from them. In all his life and
history Washington was a patriot anil
a lover of his country, but a lover of it
through its union and its permanence
and itftfltrrngth. Nothing can be found
in bis record that . he vainly
thought his beloved country could be
maintained with the notion that it
could l)o torn in part by posterity.
I.es8 than three-quarters of a cen
tury after his death this country was
rent by a great civil war, caused by a
threat against its physical unity. The
name and power and glory of Wash
ington found every loyal heart with
new determination that his fame
should not be disgraced in history by
destroying their triumphs. Instead
burning patriotism, oflering every
thing to savo tlie future and
preservo tho past, the great man's
idea was found in the consummation
of tho Union. Ho considered the
Chicago Convention of I860 as tho
supplement and fulfillment of the
Convention and Declaration of Inde
pendence. Then we were out of
power. Wo are in power now. The
Democratic party was in power then
and is now. We know what we did
then. What about now? Are not
tlie same incentives at work
among tho people? He could not
foretell a storm, but he believed the
duty now ia the same as in lSOO.
The same motives should work upon
the part? and the same responsibilities
assumed; All else must be laid aside,
and with nnselfiah devotion Republi
cans shoald regain power from the
pame reasons that led to it then. The
Democratic party had no principles
worthy of niine at that time ; and now
they Jiavo nothing to propose for the
well ire, hnppinesd and good name of
tho conntry. Tho strength of tho
Democratic party is a some what osten
tatious exhibition of the same antag
onisms that influenced it in 1800.
Republican constituency is drawn
from tho samo sources and animat
ed by the same motives as at
that time. This is not a time
to hesitate about speaking the
truth. Either party must advance
or retrograde. Tho principles that
make tip modern reasons for advance
arc: .Education, industry and suf
frage, and these irust be brought to
bear on tho masses. He said the Re
publican party must avow its holding
to tho principle of protection of
American industries. Edncationmust
be univcreal and suffrage must be
everywhere an absolute and unchal
lenged suffrage. "If in the next cam
paign victory docs not be with us, it
will bo oor weakness, but not the
Deindcratiq strength."
GOV. i. B. FORAKER OF OIUO
was then introduced, responding to
the toast, "Our State Governments
Their Relations to tho National (wv
eminent and Each inner. He re
turned thanks for his reception and
for the warm praiso bestowed on his
State bv the chairman of this meet
ing. The reason Ohio has so many
men in public life is because they are
"Republicans ami are not ashamed of
it. lliey believed: in protect
ive tariff, in a free ballot and
a fair count; m the patriotic
recollections ol tUo war ami were
alwavs ready to say so. They did not
believe in a Democratic reform ad
ministration, and said so. Three sen
timents in the toast are, State govern
ments, their relations to the National
Government, and their mutual re la-
tions. lie sixike chiefly of the second.
the others never having been particu-
stunding the different States in the
country, there is one constitution, one
flag and one destiny. Considering all
this, it is easy to keep
goou relations witli sister States.
Jt is only necessary to
claim American citizcmJiin. In refer
ence to the relations of the States to
tho National Government there bos
alwavs been u arrant ileal of ilisiinle
At the time of the adoption of the
constitution there were those who
knew that there could be no govern
ment without union ; hence the Na
tional Constitution was framed
and adopted, not by States, but bvthe
people. Opposition to this idea lias
always oeen a iiemocratic party. It
was the first duty of the Republican
party to make firm and to make uni
versally known that tho national gov
ernment was authority over, tho va
rious States. Tho verdict was with
bayonets, and the answer is Appomat
tox. Speeches were also made by Con
gressman uuentner anil others.

AMERICAN RESIDENTS TO BE T.X
PELLEI FROM THE
Flowery Kingdom for the Outrages
on Chinese Subjects la
the West.
Chicago, III., February 2 A
special dispatch from St, lxmis says:
"The Chinese community in St. Ixniis
has received what is alleged to be a
genuine copy of an imperial procla
mation requiring that mi or liefore tho
loth day of the tilth moon of the pres
ent year (May loth), all subjects of
the lai Tszing Kuipiro (China) now
residing in the United Stales of Amer
ica return home, and instructing them
upon application to their consuls, tree
transportation will be provided from
any part of tho United States -to any
part of the Chinese F.mpire, except
the province of Tuong Tung, whose
citizens, berauso of superior numlx'rs,
are required to pay half-fare. The
proclamation, while it embodies no
threats, broadly intimates that the
Chinese government Intends to speed
ily retaliate upon tho American exMrt
trade and American residents in China
for the long-continued outrages upon
the Chinese in this country. This de
sign, if carried out, will destroy an
annual export of 480,000,000 ana" ex
pose tXXM) Americans to tho terrors of
imperial persecution. Most of tho
H0.000 Chinamen in this country aro
expected to obey the proclamation."
Prominent Chinese residents of Chi
cago claim that no information con
cerning the proclamation has been re
ceived and tlie truth of tho report is
doubted. Advices from New York
and Washington aro to tho same
effect. -
China; Hal Interviewed.
New Y'ork, February 22. Tho STnil
and 1's.rprm publishes tho following in
terview with Ching Hoy, the Chinese
uonsui in tins city, basoii upon a M.
Iouis dispatch saving that theChinese
Imperial Government contemplates
retaliatory measures on account of tho
treatment accorded Chinese subjects
in this country: "l cannot snv that J
am advised that an imperial pruclauia
tion has been issued compelling all
iiunamen in this country to return
home, but I can say that tho Consul-
General at San Francisco has sont out
notices advising all Chinamen to leave
Vt bother tho government is back of
this 1 cannot say. As to the suggestion
ot retaliation, 1 have no doubt mean
ures of this kind will bo taken by our
government. It Chinamen are driven
out anrt outrageil here, why can t our
people drive out all Americans from
China? The good name jf this coun
try has been disgraced by the recent
outrages, and the question has become
very serious. Thorn is no nrntee tion
to the Chinamen at all. But American
merchants and missionaries are well
treated in China, and whenever ill
treated the government takes prompt
action, not only paying damages, but
redressing tlio wrong done, vt hat
don t understand is why tho good
people ot tho hast here remain silent
It certainly was not the intention of
Congress that merchants and others
should bo treated in this way. If
nothing is done, th commerce be
tn hr tiwv countries, amounting
to 480,000,000 annually, will bo de-
stroyedj" '
