Academy oi'Musie--Sctli Low Talks
New York, Oct. 20. General Benja
min F. Traev, cnmllilnte for mayor;
Secretary of the Interior Cornelius N.
Bliss, and Governor Prank Black ad
dressed an audience of l.r.00 persons nt
a Itepublteati meeting held tonight in
the Lenox Lyceum heie. The speak
ers and their speeches were enthusi
astically applauded. This Is the llrst
time Secretary Bliss has spoken In the
great municipal campaign.
Secretary Miss, nfter a few Intro
ductory remarks, said:
Situated as I am. separated somewhat
from the polltleul activities of tho town, I
have had an opportunity to look over tho
ground from a distance. 1 have sect, tho
Republican patt. rny party and your
party with the doors -rude open all the
time to make arrangements to Klve all
who desire good government a chance to
combine for one great success. 1 have
seen their efforts despised, until you havo
risen in your majesty and made your own
nominations. In my soul and heart I
approve what yon havo done, and 1 am
with you and with your noble candidate
for mayor as against all tho world.
Why should this bo so? 1 remember
twelve months ugo when men came to my
olllco In this city, with pale faces. Tney
said- "Is It possible that Una Ilryan bus
iness is to succeed, that disorder, social
ism, anarchy are to be the fate of this
great country? Peoplo weio pale. They
doubted; they feared. When election camo
it was all right, but over six million votes
were cast In support of tho Chicago plat
form. That tight Is not over. That light
is continuing nil over the country, and It
seems to be expected by our some time
friends that we are to submit and let
theso peoplo get their way. There aro
two candidates In this town standing on
tho Chicago platform one squarely, tho
other not saying much about It but stand
ing there Just tho same.
The state of Kansas is raising money lor
George's campaign. A fund to elect
George Is being contributed by Kansas
Populists. I can say that I hear from all
over tho country, "what Is New York go
ing to do?" They ask, "arc the peoplo of
New York going back on what they did
last year?" That Is the question. Thero
Is but one thing for the great Republican
party in this state to do. It is to get be
hind Ilenjamln F. Tracy, elect him mayor
of this great city and guarantee for four
years honest government In every way
and concurrence with the country In hon
est money and the killing of anarchism
and everything that goes with the Chl-
OVATION TO GKNERAL TRACY.
When General Tracy rose to speak
lie met with another ovation, but It
was not so lasting as the one he got
when he entered with Mr. Miss. Gen
eral Tracy in his speech dwelt largely
on Brooklyn politics and made an ar
gument against the Citizens' union.
Governor Frunk Mack, of New York,
was the next speaker. He said, In
Tills Is no time for honest men to keep
their faces frcm tho light. We are Just
bin emerging froir. a period so crltleul
thttt Its full significance will not be seen
lor many years. We havo only passed tho
point where ilimster seemed almost cer
tain, we are slowly gaining, but are still
within leach of that disaster if through
itiiliflereneu or design wo Invito it to re
turn. If tills year we relax a single effort
or do but llttlo where we might do more,
we are no wiser than he who, stricken
with fever, yields himself to folly and
Imprudence at the lirsl sign of returning

THH SAMB OLD KNRMV.
Contests are row waging in many slntes
and cities of this country. Tho same army
that threatened is last full Is again

where tho fight is on, It Ih waged on the
llnet. of St, Louis and Chicago, Social
ism, anarchy, Junk money and every wild,
eyed hybrid thai stared through tho Uhl
ca.go platform of a year ago will gather
In knots next month around tho polling
places of this republic. Ho who pretends
that unarchy is dungtrous only once In
four years, that repudiation Is dishonest
only In national elections and Is willing
at other time to keep them lompany. Is
himself a dangerous citizen and unworthy
of his privileges. You ennnot divorce
a city from tho state, n state from tho
country, any more than you can drive a
citizen from his community. All are In
terwoven nnd dependent. A man who
does not realize this fundamental truth,
sclf-ovldent and so necessary to our pre
servation and our growth, does not un
derstand tho basis of tho government un.

we aro told that polltlcnl contests should
bo fought upon non-polltlcal lines.
I utterly repudlato that doctrine. I be
lieve In tho principles of the Republican
ljarty not for a day or a year; not with in
termittent and varying fidelity, but for
all time, as the best expression of a po
litical creed, and eis the safest guide to
those who, enjoying the marvelous rights
of citizenship, would prepare themselves
to meet Its gravo demands. I believe In
partisanship always, for when devoted to
noblo purposes, It attains the piano ot pa

HENRY GEORGE'S MEETING.

Dnwcs and Creek Commissioners.
Muskogee, I. T., Oct. 20. The Creek
council, in session nt Okrnulgco, L T.,
yesterday evening rejected the treaty
recently agreed to by tho Dawes and
The vote in the lower house of th
council wns unanimous against the
treaty and only elsht members of the
house of kings voted in favor of It.
The councilmen objected to tho treaty
principally on the ground that It favor
ed the non citizens and the railroad
companies, to the detriment of the
Creeks, and did not give eanh citizen
pro rata of nil lands In the Creek na
tion. An endless amount of litigation will
doubtless be the result of the coun
cil's rejection of the treaty, as tho act
of congress which takes effect on Jan.
1, 1SB8, abolishes tho Creek courts,
places the members of (he tribe under
the jurisdiction of the United States
courts and makes their acts of council
of no force until approved by the pres

BEFORE A FOUR-WHEEL SULKY
Tho Ulg Hlnck Takes tho Place of
Stnr Pointer nnd Pacos Against
Wagon nnd High Wheel Sulky Itec-onl8"-rormor
Time Hold by W. W.
P. nt Tcrro Haute Lowered.
Jollct, HI., Oct. SO. Without nny
preparation for such a trial, Joe Patch
en, the black pacing stallion, this af
ternoon reduced the world's pacing rec
ord to a four-wheeled sulky by nearly
four seconds. The record was estab
lished at lirgalls' park track, tills city,
before 2,700 people, who had been at
tracted by tho announcement that Stnr
Pointer would go against both the wag
on and high wheel sulky records, nnd
that Joe Patchen would try nnd bent
his own record of 201'4. Star Pointer
was lame, however, and Owner Mur
phy refused to let him fulfill his en
gagement. But Mr. Marks, the owner
of Joe Patchen, agreed to let the black
horso tako Star Pointer's place und go
against the wagon nnd high-wheel
Previous to this, about 3 o'clock the
great son of Patchen Wilkes had again
made a remarkable time In attempting
to beat his own record of 2.0U.4. Driv
en by Atkinson, he went the circuit
In 2.02, lowering the Ingall's park
record. The time by quarters was 31,
1.02; 132'i. 2.02. Several watches
caught tho time in 2.02',.
The horse was urged a great deal
In this heat, but he did not appear
until 4.1.r o'clock to make his trial
ngninst the wagon or four-wheel rec
ord. After scoring once, Ames, who now
drove, signalled for the word and away
the big black went with the running
mute trailing a length or two away.
Ames rated his charge splendidly, cov
ering tho first quarter In 32!, skim
ming along the back stretch with the
stallion almost easily in 31,i. The far
turn the pacer faced tho breeze, what
ever there was of It, but it was hero
that Ames first urged him, with the
running mate, too, running alongside,
and, responding: to the call, the noble
Patchen sped over the third quarter In
30',. seconds. It was now a foregone
conclusion that tho record would be
broken, and outbursts of applause be
gan before the horse was well straight
ened out for home. Ames knew the
staying power of his horse and never
relinquished, urging him by voice nnd
an occaslonnl sharp crack of tho whip.
The result wns the last quarter was
made In 30V1 seconds, the time of the
last half mile being 1.01'i and the
great pacer finished strong and true,
nearly four seconds ahead of the rec
ord. THE FORMER RECORD,
The former record Is held by AY. W.
P., having been made at Torre Haute
In 1S9j. The announcement of the time
elicited prolonged cheers.
Joe Patchen appeared fairly tired
after the trial, but, nevertheless, he
was taken to .the stable, rubbed down
and prepared for his trial again at the
high wheeled sulky. The general ver
dict was that he would be able to re
peat his record-breaking, although the
high wheeled record, held by Jonston,
Is 2.0GV4, and the black would not need
to go an fast ns his mile to the "wagon
In order to win.
After two scores, Ames signalled for
the word and they were sent away,
the runner trailing as before. The
quarter was reached in 32, tho same
time as made In the trial with the
wagon, but the second quarter showed
a decrease of speed, the time being
1.03. Three-quarters was reached In
1.33 flat, and the mile in 2.06. half a
second short of the record. This, how
ever, beats the best efforts made by
John R. Gentry this season against
the same mark.

BUNCOEKS ABROAD : BEWARE !
It Is the trick of tho Bryanlzcd De

charges against Republican methods,
raise a big dust, hire Republican mal
contents to organize Republican bolts
and then coax individual Republicans

You now see through this trick. Aro
