HIS PROCEDURE IN EVICTION CS 5
London, September 23. A new danger
threatens Mr. Gladstone's Government in
the movement Leaded by Sir John Eldon
Gorst, recently Lord Salisbury's Financial
Secretary of the Treasury, to form a party
to advocate dealing with social legis
lation, or in other words with the
labor questions, in preference to IrVi
home rule, which the Premier insists on
putting to the front to the virtual dela
tion, for a long time, of definite action on
matters of far more importance to Great
Britain and of far more interest to the peo
ple. More than SO of the advanced Conserva
tives and Unionists have already promised
adherence to such a party and its pro
gramme, and tea importance of Gorst's
leadership in such a crusade cannot be over
estimated. A Steadfast Friend of labor.
He is one of the most clever men on the
Conservative side of the House of Com
mons, and is so genuinely devoted to the
ause of the workingmea that he constantly
jpurted the resentment of his chief while
in office by urging upon the Salisbury Cabi
net the claims of labor, which he frequently
did at times most inopportune to the plans
of the administration.
Although, of course, party intrigue rather
ihan sincerity in the case of the poor, is
charged as trie basis ot the movement, and
may have a little to do with it in the ad
htsion of some Unionists to Sir John's
Bcbe.ne, nevertheless it may serve to attract

Signs of a Great Radical Ileiolt
The placidity on the surface of political
1-iirs is altogether deceptive as to the real
ite of the Liberal sections and the minis
lal position. There is nobody on the
mp in Great liritain, and though some
the Irish politicians maintain their con
verses, their squabbles have small bear
: upon the tendency ot events. But, un
n ot the general public, the greatest
nger menacing the existence of the Glad
one Government is the formation of a

"Our interview was very unsatisfactory,
and I have no hesitation in saying so. It

he continually wore American trousers and

almost every day he would go in the water
naked where holes had been cut in the ice.
He would protest that he was not cold, ard

WANAMAKER ALSO MAKES QUITE A HIT
Philadelphia, Sept 23. One of the
greatest gatherings of people that has ever
greeted a publio man in this city thronged
the Academy of Music to-night to listen to
Governor William McKinley, of Ohio,
speak upon "The Pending Issues ot the
Campaign." An hour before the time
announced for Major McKlnley to begin to
speak, men and women began to pour into
the building, and by 8 o'clock fully 8,000
people were packed closelv together, await
ing the arrival of the champion of a pro
tective tariff. Finally the crush became so
great that the doors were closed and hun
dreds were unable to gain admission.
Governor McKinley was the guest of the
Manufacturers' Club, and shortly before 8
o'clock he came upon the stage, escorted by
Thomas Dolan, President of the club, and
a score or more of members of the club. As
Governor McKlnley entered the great
audience arose and cheered until the walls
of the building almost shook uncier the
volume of sound.
In a brief speech Mr. Dolan Introduced
Governor McKinley, and the latter as
again given an ovation as he came to the
lront of the stage. Governor McKiulev
spoke tor an hour and a half. His sneeeii '
was mainly upon the tariff, uhich he
designated as the great issue ot the
campaign. The enthusiasm upon his sub
ject was communicated to his auditors, and
again and again he was compelled to stop
while the storm of applause rolled through
the building. Every mention of President
Harrison's name by Governor McKinley
aroused the greatest enthusiasm in the
One of the Trophies or Protection.
While Major McKinley was in the midst
of his speech a loeil club came upon the
stage bearing .at its head a banner of tin
plate, with the arms of Pennsylvania
painted upon it, and this inscription:
j AMERICAN TIN PLATE.
Made at Norrlstown, Fa., 1892. :
Governor McKinley, pointing to the ban
ner, said; "There is another trophy of pro
tection," and the audience cheered itselt
hoarse. In opening bis speech Governor
McKinley spoke of the great manufactures
of Philadelphia, and its place in the history
of the country as the city in which liberty
was born and the Constitution framed.
Coming to the direct text of his speech Gov
ernor McKinley said:
The money of this country should he as,
national as Its Has. It should bo as sound
as the Government Itself, and that is the
character of the money we have to-day and
which we mean to maintain. If Congress
should happen to be Democratic, then I
want Benjamin Harrison Piesldent. He
believes In sound money, and will veto any
Democratic bill to corrupt and debase the
currency of the United States. I am not
only opposed to cheap money, but I am op-

The Democratic platform Is for tariff reve

The Last Bcsort of Democratic Leaders.
The Democratio tariff has no object In

ment A protective tariff does everything
to raise revenue for the Government that a
tariff for revenue only does, and It has
never failed us but twice in the his
tory of our Government. The Democratio
party says in Its platform that this
tariff is unconstitutional. This Is tho last
resort of Democratic leaders and usually
precedes surrender. This tariff is not In
violation of tho Constitution of the United
8tates. but it tmy be under the Constitution
of the Confederate States. But thank God

pose of the men who made it, and If
anything else, it Is result of accident
and not design.
Peck's Figures Pointed to With Pride.
Governor McKinley then took np the
tariff in its foreign aspect, and quoted fig
ures to prove its beneficial effect upon the
industries of the country and the welfare of
the people. He referred particularly to the
reports of the Labor Commissioners
of Indiana, Massachusetts and New
York in confirmation of his
statements. He said Mr. Peck's report has
et the Democrats stunned and confused,
and that they ary trying to arrest facts bv
indicting the commissioner. Governor Mc
Kinley quoted largely irom Senator Hili's
recent Brooklyn speech, and warned him
that he could not make a platform for his
party, as they would reject it, as they did
him. In concluding his speech Governor
My fellow citizens: There Is no perma
nent place In the polities of American civ
ilization for a party that bases ltB claims for
confidence upon failures and discourage
ments of the people. There Is no honora
ble and permanent and successful place for
any party In America that appeals to tho
prejudice and the passion and Ignorance of
the people thcme4ves. That has been the
history of tho Democratic leaders for 33
yeais. Their arsenal and their armanent
nas been the prediction of failure of Repub
lican measures and Republican politics.
A Party of Unfulfilled Predictions.
Every Kepnbllcan measure and every Re
publican policy for SO years was predicted a
failure by the leaders of the Democratic
party. You all remember it. The was was
to be a failure: the issue of greenbacks was
to be a failure; the resumption of specie
payment was to bo a failure, and
now the tariff law of 1S90 is to
be a failure. They propose nothing,
thev reject nothing. Their platform Is a
declaration of retrogression. They lootc
brckward instead of forward. They look
Into the night Instead or the morning. But
of every prediction that the Democratic
party has made since 1861, not one of them
has been verified.
I cannot believe that the people of this
country will vote for Grover Cleveland for
President of the United States the repre
sentative of this retrogresslonal reaction,
tho representative of free trade and all dis
tresses that follow in its wake, the repre
sentative of every principle of tho
Demooratlc National Convention. I can
not believe but that the people of this
country will vote for Hairison and Held be
cause thev represent Republican principles
and Republican policy and President Har
lison's administration for the past
four veais has been one of
the most slandered administrations that
this country has ever had. It has been
clean, conservative and patriotic, wise nnd
able. Its domestic policy has been wise and
conciliatory. Its foreign policy has been
firm and thoroughly American. It was this
administration that said to a foreign Gov
ernment that was making unreasonable de
mands upon this country It was this ad
ministration that wrote "This country has
never yet lecelved orders from a foreign
Government and doesn't propose to."
I would as soon as nut In command of the

cabinet officer to the front of the stage. He
deprecated the idea of making a speech,

Music to-night, the second ot the campaign
in this city given under the auspices
of the Kings County Cleveland and
Stavenson Campaign Clubs, was neither
as large nor as enthusiastio as
the one held a few nights previously, when
Senator Hill spoke. The house was
prettily decorated, the portraits of the two
Democratic candidates being hung immedi
ately o er the stage surrounded by festoons
of stars and stripes.
Edward M. Shepard, as President of the
meeting, opened the proceedings with a
speech, in which he said:
We have heard said to the effect that the
present campaign Is not an oxclttng one;
that It Is the dullest within the memory ot
politicians. No doubt there Is some truth
in this. For the first time In many years
attacks upon the personal characters of the
candidates have not been made. There is

Touching on the Homestead difficulty,
Mr. Bayard said:
One effect that must survive tho dreadful

Mr. Bayard said the Republican party
evaded discussing broad principles, but was
engrossed in fixing the price oi a pearl but

As soon as the applause following Mr.
Bayard's speech had subsided, John D.

was introduced. He is ex-Railroad Com
missioner and presiding officer at the anti

concluded his remarks thus:

A Sew Rule That Voters in Pennsylvania
Will Have to Get Used To.
Habbisbtjbg, Sept 23. .-
Many requests are being made lor copies of
the revised form of the official ballot and
the specimen ballot to be used under the
operations of the Baker ballot reform law.
An idea evidently prevails among many
persons who have not seen the revised form
of ballot that stickers can be nsed on the
ballot to paste over any name printed
thereon. This is wrong. None of the
officially printed names can be erased,
crossed out or pasted over.
Stickers may be nsed, but they can be
legally placed only in the blank spaces in
the fourth column of the ballot left for that
purpose, and not over another name. In
these blank spaces the voter may insert any
name he pleases, either by means of a
sticker, by writing, or by stamping.

A New Construction of the Chinese
That May Cause Complications.
"Washington, Sept 23. Assistant Sec
retary Spaulding has written a letter to the
Collector of Customs at Port Towniend,
Wash., in which" he says the department
had received his letter wherein he requested
Instructions for his guidance in the case of
one Chin Yon, a Chinese who claimed to be
a British subject, and applied for admis
sion to the United States. The applicant
submitted a certificate of naturalization
1 ssued by the County Court of New "West
minster, Vancouver. In transmitting the
case to the department the Secretary said:
You state that In your opinion "these
papers have been piepaied with a view of
making this a test case, and if this Chinese
Serson is permitted to enter tho United
tates under the circumstances, I have no
doubt whatever that the authorities on tho
other side of the boundary line will begin to
manufacture citizens of British Col
umbia lor tho purpose of evad
ing tho Chinese restriction act of
1383; In leplyyou are Informed that this
department holds that tho naturalization of
a Chinese person by an adjacent country
would not quality suoh person to enter tho
United States, and you are instructed to de
cline to consider the papers mentioned as In
any manner changing the statns of such
person, so far as his admission into the
United States is concerned.
An official of the Tceasury Department
said this afternoon that it was u debatable
question if this action of the department in
refusing to recognize British naturalization
of Chinese persons is not in conflict with
the treaty with Great Britain whereby its
subjects are allowed to enter and leave the
United States at any time and all times.

the germ of cholera Is blown by the wind
into your homes or your faces, you must kill
these germs and at once. If the water you
drink contains germs or cholera you must de

"The purity of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey

How' the Taste Changes In
Society Ladies Enthusiastic
the New Musical Craze.
Chief Exponent's Interesting
Talk In Regard to Himself!
The fashion In music Is all running toward
the banjo this season. Thousands of girls
and women in jashlonable society, to say
nothing of the men, have taken np the banjo
as the popular musical Instrument of the
day. The "thrum thrum" of fair fingers U
heard on every hand.
Prof. Henry C. Weltzel, one of the greatest
musicians this century has produced, occu
pies tbe undisputed position of the best
banjo player in the world. Visited at his
home, 841 South Canton street. Baltimore,
Md., the great exponent of the banjo was
found full of enthusiasm for his beloved In
strument. And In bis hands the music U
indeed beautiful wondorful.
The great professor, as everybody knows,
was most seriously sick for a time, but his
thousands of admirers will be glad to learn
that he has completely recovered hla
professor HEr a WErrzEt.
Wnen approached In regard to his health,
he spoke In raptures concerning bis re
covery, for he considers his restoration to
health little short of a miracle, as he bad
well-nigh lost hope of ever being well again.
"I suffered severely," he said, "with
indigestion, nervous prostration and palpi
tation of the heart. I bad spells of weak
ness come ovor me so tbat mv legs would
give way and I would be forced to leave
my work. In fact I was iu a bad fix, and
my nerves were in a very serious con
dition. I now thank God tbat I got some
of Dr. Greene's Nervnra blood and nerve
remedy got the best medicine at lust after
trifling with many doctors, who did me no
good. I am using my second bottle, and It
certainly beats all the medicine I ever saw.
I tell you I feel like another man."
Prof. Weitzel is well known at this office,
and tbe editor can therefore personally
vouch for the absolute truth and correct
ness of every one of the above statements.
None of Prof. Weltzel's friends ever ex
pected to see him well again, and his res
toration to health Is a great triumph for Dr.
Greene's Nervnra blood and nerve remedy.
It certainly does enre tbe sick. It makes
them strong and well. Besides, It has the
great virtue of being a perfectly harmless
remedy, as it is purely vegetable. Although
sold by druggists for $1 03, it is not a patent
medicine In the ordinary sense of tbe word,
but is tho discovery and prescription of the
great specialist in nervous and chronlo
diseases, Dr. Greene, of 33 Wet Fourteenth
street, New York, who gives consultation
and advice free to the sick and suffering,
either personally If yon call at bis office, or
by letter If you write him about your case.
We advise sufferers from disease to use bis
wonderful discovery, which so remarkably
restored Prof. Weitzel to health and
