t ic, gpeke here today to as lriie a.i
aud'enceas the beautiful rourtr' om
would hold. Mr. Phelaa ppoke fir t
and was introduced by Juogfi Calvin
Jones, who bespoke for him a pr ti-nt
hearing. Mr. Phelan was rtceived
with loud cheers, and it is but biir to
say, ma le the bast speec'.t of the
Mr. l'hfl' Kpcecli.
M'. Phelan atid hn felt e-"i e. ii'ly
gratified to the Democracy of Fayette for
their support before and since his nom
ination, and recoirnlt A under what al
most insurmountable difficulties ihoy bore
the banner of their party. Before dircussing
the lending issues of the cauvats. he w shed
to address ft few words in all candor and
friendship, to the more intollieent colored
men in the audience. For twenty-live yearn,
aid Mr l'helan, you have been repeatoitly
told that the Kvpublicaos were your only
friends that they set you free. This is the
claim they make in their secret meetings; n
public, and across the border line to North
ern audiences, thoy dare ret venture su h a
frautlu.ent claim. On a recent oocusion Mr.
Blaine, addressing his wlnlo ptrtisans in
Maine, called (Stir attention to the tact that
Northern white laborers found in the South
ern blacks their uioft foriuus competition
a competition which he declared to
be unjust to Northern lnbor. . Mr
l'helan evidently impressed his colored
auditors as he continusd to urg that the
late war was not waced for their
einanoipation; that they were fre'd as a
military necersity t maintain the integrity
of the Union ; thai the moot prominent and
siicoesnful Northern generals and s t liers
were Iremoorals throuirhout. He ouoted
Presidont Lincoln's letfr to Horace Oreely,
in which he declared: "It I can preserve
the Union by freeing: all the slaves I will do
so. If 1 can preserve the Union by free ng
some of them I w II do so. It I caa b-ttor
preserve the Union by not freeing a single
slave, then nit one single slave
shall be emancipated." He showed
that with Lincoln, Grant, bher
man, llanoock, Halleck. the sole object of
tbe war was the preservation of the Union.
In Fsyette oounty, said Mr. Phelnn, you
furnish nineteen-twontieths of the votes and
are fairly entitled to that pro rate of tbe
offices; but you get but one of the offices
while your white allies walk off with the
nineteen. (Lauxhtorand applause I Thero

entiroly over, Bainey ana gave the
oterkship of the Uouso to the Hon. Kd

old oolored l)emcrt: "Yah, yah, yah;

It will be forever. With your 12iH) or 1500
majority in Fayette, you have two Kepublic in

Never! Mr. Reeves is a white man; Dr.

urged upon his colored hearers
to throw off ihe R publican

blurted their sensus. He wanted to see a
kindly feeling between the races take the
Dlace of secret malice, prejudice nna dis

The Republicans, he said, had controlled
the conntry for a quarter of a century. The
Democrats had not .1 any one session during
all these years hd full control of the law

the reforms promised, they have done the
best thev could, with the Republican Party
bitterly opposing every measure of reform

was a most humiliating confession, but out

Mr. Phelan read from reports made by
Solicitors of the Treasury for twenty years
nast Reoublicsn Solicitors and showed
Republican defalcations in detail averaging
neatly $2,000,010 ayear. These reports, how

FINANCES, GOLD AND SILVER.
Mr. Phelan's discussion of gold and
silver coinage was especially able and
convincing. Hia opponent began tbe
oanvass by cnarging tbat tne JJem
oorats had opposed the free coinage
of silver, but had been driven, completely
routed, from his position. The under
lying idea of all circulation was enough
currency to meet tne needs ot tne
people, tbe demands of commerce
and keen it bevond control of thi
monev centers and speculators of New York
and Chicego. Mr. Arthur recctnmendod the

Cleveland. But while at one point Repub
licans and Democrats touched on this iBsue,
the diverger.ee was m nifmt and undenia
ble. Arthur, McCullough, Sherman, all
took a pronounced stand against the coinage
of silver, advising that it be bus;. ended,
and likewise the issuanoe oi silver
certificates; demnnding that on the
6th of December, imi, the practice of ex
changing silver for certificates should cease.
The latter was Mr. Arthur's order. It was
true that Proident Cleveland and Mr Ian

held common grounu, out no lunhor. I no

ter he would take the Blair b II. It dors
not, he said, give control over schools to the
Federal Uovsrntnent. The Republican idea
was that Federal jurisdiction mu t follow
Federal appropriation: Democratio op
position to the Blair bill was
based on the tare Dresemption
that It riemivn tb Rtn.rai of suImi. vif Ui and
jurisdiction. He, himself, held t) the the
ory sustained by Jefferson, Madison, Monroe
and others, tbat the Federal Uovernment
might appropriate money to mo Diaves. out

This Is bnt an Imperfect outline (necessarily

He would, said he, discuss no dead and
bu'iod isue5 no wornout theories, t-uch
as he touched upon wou d be applicable to
the needs and respon'ih;iiiios ol the hour.
But one word as to Mr. l'helan s appeal to
tlm colored voters. Thev certainly
knew, or ought to know, after what manner
Democratio leaders Dad dealt witn mem
tinrnioforn. II could recall but
ono promise Demoorats had ever made
any colored man, and that was
their promise to Id Shaw of the Coal Oil In
spectorship, which, with their urual oon.
siatenev. thev had irivn l.n a white Demoorut.
IL .ushter from tha onlored seats. 1 He. too.
would appeal only to their intelligence it
was the only orncible In which to test the rel
ative merits of the two great parties. What
policy had Mr. Phelan advocated? Whit idea
of administration hat he told you he would
maintain? lie had onlv denounced the
hnrt nmina-a nf tb lTniililinan nartv. Whv
not toll wht the tlamoeraev has done for
the coloredjnan? Because it had done n th
ing! Twer years ago bo bore me nopoon
can hanner to viotnrv. and had represented
Ihe district in Corgress with whatever of
ability and energy be could command, llnw
he had discharged the outiei confided to him
was for his constituents to determine. He
had heard no advuraA criticism from either
friend or foe, and, therefore, ooncluded that
the judgment of the people ape-roved bis
course. Mr. Tayler then defend d the policy
of the Republioan p. rty. and denied that
Mr. Cleveland had saved even a cent. His
speech was an excellent one from his stand
point, and we much regret we cannot give a
luncr account or it.
Mr. Phelan followpd in a re spoope
of five minutes, and Mr. Taylor closed
in the same time, the adherents of
eanh (a'ld cenec a v ttiofe oi Mr.
Phelan, who Lai not before heard
him in public deba'e), seeming well
plea'fd with the result.
