Another rousing Republican meeting
was held In Peckvllle, last night. Molt
Haven hall, midway between thu Peck
vllle station and Olyphant, where the
meeting took place, Is not of very Im
posing dimensions' but. between the
crowd that nqueezed Itself Inside and
those who managed to place themselves
within earshot of the speakers by
standing In tho doorways nnd outside
the hall nt the open windows, there
w.ih a good sized audience gathered,
probably seven hundred perpons.
All thf candidates were present und
as linn been their unvarying experi
ence all through the county they were
given a vcrltnble ovntlon when they
appeared on the stage. Tho speakers
were Fred W. Fleltz, John R. Jones,
John F. Scrags nnd M. W. Lowry.
Gomcr J. Reese wns chosen chairman
nnd In the list of vice presidents were
all tli? leading Republicans of that lo
cality. Mr. Scrngg was tho main speaker of
the evening nnd his subject "Party Re
form" proved under his nblo hnndllng
to be n most Interesting one. Men are
not Infallible he started out by saying
and lunce parties which are simply an
aggregation of men can not be expect
ed to bo Infallible. The Republican
party Is porhnps not. perfect. Possibly
thero are defects In It, but they are
similar to defects In any family and
like any domestic dissensions must
bo treated within family lines.
When a party convention mnkes a
choice, Mr Scrags contended, the men
of that party who nre believers In the
principles of that party should support
that choice even though as Individuals
they would not have made such a
choice. They have no right or logical
reason to put their wisdom In competi
tion with the combined wisdom of the
party. The probabilities always aro
that tho wisdom or the party is always
more to bo relied upon than the wis
dom of an Individual.
HONEST 1JFT MISTAKEN.
Addressing himself to those who
have wandered from tho party and In
augurated new parties In the vain hope
of effecting this reform or tliat. Mr.
Scragg said they were to his mind,
honest but ir'stakon: they could ac
complish more In tho furtherance of
their pet purposes by remaining loyal
members of a powerful party, partici
pating In Its councils, helping to shape
ItH course mm sharing In Its power
and Intluence, than they can ever ex
pect .to accomplish in their weak Inde
pendent movements, which effect no
good for the particular principles they
espouse and do no small amount of
harm to the general tenets of their
political creed. Such men he hoped
would realize tho Injury they were do
ing to themselves and their friends.
and the help they were inadvertently
lending to the common enemy. The
only candidates In the present cam
paign are those on tho Republican and
Democratic tickets. A vote cast by one
who should be a Republican for a
third party was a half vote cast for
In speaking or the Democratic party,
which It will not be gafnsald ho hnd
excellent opportunity of studying, Mr.
Scragg branded it as a party of dead
statesmen and dead Issues. It Is with
out fixed principles and devoid of a
lender who can bo classed as a states
man. Its Inconsistency Is Instanced in
this county and in this campaign and
proof Is once more given of tho trite
and true saying that It never learns
anything by experience. In this con
nection Mr. Scragg dwelt at length up
on tho action of the local Democracy
In loudly acclaiming Its undying faith
In and fealtv to the platform which
was repudiated In this county by n
two-third vote of the people and then
not only refusing to stand upon the
platform but trying to hoodwink tho
sensible and thinking Democrats into
the belief that platforms are of no con
sequence In county campaigns.
For the benefit of the many Demo
crats who were present, Mr. Scragg
reviewed the "stalwart and unflinch
ing" Democracy of Mr. Schadt, and it
Is not at all Impossible that many of
those present heard some things which
they were not aware of before, judging
from the questions that wore piled to
the speaker after the meeting hnd ad
journed. District Attorney John R. Jones' re
ception was a repetition of tho demon
Htmtlon at Olyphant the night before.
Tho people nnd tho band men kept It
up until they wore ready to collapse.
It was such n scene on a small scale
as one would witness during u nomi
nation at a national convention. Mr.
Jones made one of his characteristic
speeches and when he had finished nnd
the npplauso following his speech had
subsided a committee of his neighbors
of Ulakely went forward nnd presented
a set of resolutions similar In tone to
those adopted at Olyphant, atllrmlng
tho highest confidence In Mr. Jones
nnd expressing esteem and regnrd for
him as a citizen, neighbor and nillclal,
und assuring him and the ticket of
which he was a part the heartiest sup
port. It la needless to say they were
unanimously nnd vociferously adopted.
Mr. Fleltz and Mr. Lowry plead for
strenuous and uncenslng work for tho
whole ticket from now until tho close
of tho polls on election day. After the
meeting tho candidates held an In
formal reception nnd were presented
by the county committeemen to hun
dreds of the workers and voters pres
ent. ON THE WEST SIDE.
An enthusiastic and well attended
meeting of tho Fifteenth ward voters
was held In Evans hall on South Main
avenue, last evening. Tho meeting
wns addressed by Hon. John R. Farr,
AV. Gaylonl Thomas nnd E. E. Robn

AV. 8. Jones, of Hampton Btreet acted
ns chairman and introduced each
speaker with a few timely remarks.
Hon. John R. Farr was tho first speak
er. He outlined the purposo of tho
mooting. Mr. Farr dwelt nt tome

That his hearers were in hearty accord
with the spc alter wns evidenced by the
Ills remarks upon the labor question
and thu laboring man nlso met with
their full sympathy. Then Inking up
the county ticket selected' by tho Re
publicans. Mr. Fair spoke In regatd
to the merits of the candidates and
concluded his tomnrks with un urgent
appeal to the workers to do tholr duty.
W. Goylord Thomas, spoke upon tho
national, state and local Issues nnd ex
plained the connection which neces
sarily existed bet.veen them. The
ppoaker urged continued efforts to
wards th'e success of that party nnd Its
representatives, that had brought re
lief to a long suffering people. His
romnrks were interspersed with taint
ed storloH which enforced the meaning
conveyed. Ills hearora heartily ap
plauded his words at frequent Inter
vnls. Ho urged a h-a:-ty support for

cluded lila remarks by saying that
when the "last vote Is counted our

E. K. Robathan followed, nnd in a
hnppy view. Ho mentioned tho state
ment of a Democrat who assured him
only yesterday that tho Fifteenth
ward wns already won over to that
side. Mr. Robathan thought otherwise,
nnd ho only wished that same prophet
was present to learn so for himself.
Tho npplauso which followed seemed
to Indicate that tho Democrat wns a
false prophet. Mr. Robathan conclud
ed with n few pithy remarks In con
nection with each candidate on the
tlotet nnd assured his hearers that thoy
would h'ave no cause for regret in ac
cording them hearty support.
The meeting then adjourned and the,

Short speeches wore made there.

Instead of a hnlf-niled church, every
pew In the Perm A Venue Uaptlst church
ought to have been occupied 1-ist night
when Rev-. John R. Paxton. D, )., of
New York cltv, delivered his lecture,
"The Puvlllon of Mars." Dr. Paxton
served three years nt tho fivnt during
the Civil wnr nnd from his personal
experiences dtow n vivid plctuio which
for two full hours thrilled his hearers
lnt night. It was tho second h'cture
In a seiles of four to bo given In Un
church. Dr. Paxton's lecture was, happily,
not a resume of the war. He appar
ently uppreclntes tho knowledge pos
sesed by peoples generally of the mem
orable struggle, nnd strictly confined
himself tu u rehearsal of Incidents that
happened to him and to thousands of
other volunteers, tho enlistment nnd
scenes before tho regiments wore fully
mustered, tho ninrchs fnun Washing

cruits nnd veterans under fire nnd a

nnd Is well qualified to hold the wrapt
attention of his auditors during n re
cital of tho dallv scenes nnd Incidents
which made up tho life of a soldier.
Interspersed among his recitals of
war-time, Dr. Paxton chose to diverge
nnd treat of the qualifications, senti
ment, character and spirit of human
ity In its relation to deeds of valor, but
he nlways kept these observations In
close communion with his main sub
ject. HEROES AND COWARDS.
The bravest of men, he said, fear
nothing except danger. What Is true
