DIVIDING TIME IN OHIO. "
AN EXTRAORDINARY UNION POLITI- re
CAL MEETING AT ADA.
Governor Ctauvbell, t h e Democritle 1
Champion, Winis the Openiig il Clos
ifag, and Makes Good Use ofi the l'rivi- V
loge in Doing Up McKinley. A,
ADA, Om11o., Oct. S.- The little town pI
of Ada was in gala attire to-day in
honor of its great political event, and di
not only did every front window pre- ti
sent a likeness of either McKinley or
Campbell, but from every limb of the 0
trees were suspended above the streets q
portraits of the distinguished Ohioans. A
Flags and banners and bunting there b
were without number, and so generous
was the friendly rivalry of decorations
displayed by Democrats and lepubli
cans that the very horizon was obscured
by the familiar lines of the national
colors. Great decorative taste was dis
played in various triumphal arches, the
most prominent of these structures be
ing the non-partisan, "Welcome" arch,
which rose above Main street and boro
the words, "Welcome to their leaders."
From the Keystone were also suspend
ed portraits of AlcKinley and Camp
bell, and as the various m-larching clubs
marched under the arch they cheered
lustily for their respective leaders.
By noon there were over live thotts
and strangers in the city, and althotigh
great enthusism was manifested by
both parties, the rivalry was a friendly
one and entirely devoid of unpleasant
incidents. Many Indianians and a few
Illinoistans came and they numbered In
their ranks the most enthusiastic par
tisans on the ground. Prom early morn
ing until the opening of the meeting t.he
music of bands resounded through the
streets and occasionally the blast. of a
tin horn distturbed the martial melody.
There was an object lesson, however.
in these tin horns, for they were tmider
stood to be and labelled as the product
of American tin. The handv walking
cane, displayed with much ostentationli
by various marching clubs, was alluded
to as having an origin in the tin niines
of Dakota, and no occasion was lost toi
denounce in vigorous language the iete t
noir of Ohio Republicans, the "1eno v
cratic tin-plate liar." On the other hand
the Democrats retaliated by displaying
badges bearing allusions to the incon- ,
sistency and impotency of the Mclin
ley bill. The ladies wore distinctive
badges, which attracted much atten
tion, and the Democratic badge receiv
ed special allusion by Governor Camp
bell. It bore a portrait of Campbell,
and below it were the sigmlicant words,
"American wvool, 21 cents, on account
of the MlcKinley bill." An Ameri
can tin badge, displayed with equal
pride by epublicans, contained a por
trait of Alchinley and bore the Words:
"Protection and ionest Ioney."
't'here were many prominent ()io
politicians on the grand Stand, alid both
parties were fairly well represented.
At 11.15 aspecial train hearing Major
McKinley, Senator Ilinluplireys and
others rolled into the depot, and cer
after cheer arose fron the crowds as
the features of the great exponent. of
protection were recognized by the mi1
titude. The Alajor bowed smilingly to
the crowd, and, (Ilickly enh-ring a car
riage, was driven1 to th residnce of
Prof. Lehr, undler escort ol' vari... i
marching clubs, led lay an exitltant
brass baud. Promptly at 1:2.30 the
Hocking V'alley train, bearing about
one thousand ecleering I )eiiocrats andt
Republicans, drove in sight, and at
tached to the rear of it, was t hie spaecial
car "Bluckeye,"~ containiing (Governor at
Campb elI, D r. Norton, (Chirman N or

repetitiomn of the enthusiastic ovat ion
extendedi to MtcKinilev was the recep-a
t ion tendered ('amipbell.
As the cheerin g mullt itud(e pr.essead

were temporarily interruipted while C
Governor C'ampbell extended his hiand '
to a few or the more demonstrative. *'
'The band struck uip "T'he Camnpbells are~
Coming" andi again a series of emnthuisi
astic Democratic cheers rent the air.
The Governor was rapidly drivent to the
residence of P'rof. L4ehr, where hie mnet
Alajor McKinley, and they took lunch
with Prof. Lehr and a 'few persomau
friends. For a brief hour politics and
the great struggle which is being waged a~
f or partisan supremacy in the liuekeye t
State were forgotten and these t wo gen- -
tlemen, each acknowledged lby his op
p)onents to bet "te prin1ce of goodI lel. u
lows," met in special friendship in I oh
ilnment of their mutual p)ledge at the ~
contest that there shouldi be a (campa)igni !
of measures nm! principles and not of "
T1o-day's union political lme etinig was
held ini a vast amph)lithieatre on thle "
Fair grounds. Great taste was display
edi in the decorations and in the centre ~
ot the groundis was a large pole0, from P
which floatedi proudly the Stars andti
Stripes. Artillery was called Into re- i
(quisition, and as the two distinguished
leaders appearedl in sight a Governor 's I
salute was fired.n
Among the prominient people 01n the a
grand stand were Congressman Storer, 'l
Congressman Taylor, Gen. Finley, Ex
Congressman Yoder, E. W. P'oe, lie- lP

The meeting was presided ov'er by 8

County D)emocratic central commit.tee, I
on behalf of the D)emocrats, and Jlames t
C. Howe, of the itepuiblicani counaty "
central committee, on b ehalf of the lti
publicans. It was 1.15 I'. M. when the "2
meeting wvas called to orde. by the ]tev"
Mr Cam pbell, a Presbyte'ian minister.
and at that time fully Seven thousandh
People were on the grounds. T1he cleric-h

ing officers of the meeting, and an
nlounced that Governor Campbell would ~
be the first speaker. t
Chairman Fleet, the D)emnocratic I
presiding officer, made a brief speech of a
congratulation to everybody, and an- a
nounced that Governor Camupbell had
gained the privilege of opening andti
closing by casting lots. The gentle-'
man committed a alight bull b)y ailud
lng inadvertently to Major McKinley 1
as "Governor McKinley," and the lie
pnblicans cheered lustily, while the
chairman blushed in confusion.

Landard with which we shall measutre

est of the world, and the other relates
) the methods of taxation by which we

Ipon this question of silver the Dem

Coming back to the tariff question
fIcKinley said: The Governor's plat
'orm commits him to a tariff for revenue
mily, that is, a tariff upon foreign pro
luets, levied with no other object in
oriew but revenue, unmindful of every
ther consideration but revenue, not
.aring for the industries and occupa
Aons of the people. A revenue tariff
will raise revenue for the Government;
% protective tariff will do that; a rev
inue tariff will do nothing else; a pro
Lective tariff besides raising revenue
will also stimulate the industries ot the
people, encourage the skill and genius
of American citizens, develop the re
sources of the Government and secure
to it as it has done in the past thirty
years the first rank in mining, agricult
ure and manuifacturing. Tell me why
the foreign producer should be permit
led to enjoy this market equally with
the American citizen; why he should
have the same privilege to enter this
market with his competing products as
the Atmerican citizens enjoys.
AcKinley thein analyzed his tariff bill
from his own standpoint.
At. the conclusion of Major McKinley's
ipeech the adherents of the great expo
nent of high tariff burst into cheers and
pr-olonged applause, hats and parasols
were waved in the air and the band be
g'ai to play. It was soni minutes be.
rore 'ampbell could obtain order, and
not, until NlcKinley had signalled to his
frierids to subdue their enthusiasm.
Ladies and gentlemen, said Governor
'aimipbell, I concur most heartily with
\fijor Mckinley that this is the greatest
mrid best and proudest nation on earth.

ereatness and that wealth as God dis

000 in debt and declares that the gov
erno)r lost thme money mn stock gamiblin..
iIe also dleclares that Mr. Camnpbell

of' Wilkinson and emphatically denies
that Governor Campbell owes him
money. iIe says the governor never

Polk publishes a lengthy statement, ir
which he says:
"It has been charged in the newspa
pers that I skulked the battle of Win
chester of September 19, 1861; that
was hidden behind a stone fence on th
morning of that day, when my regimen
had gone oin and was encged in battl
that Bri- Gen Bryan Grimes saw mi
there and had a conversation with me
that I claimcd to have a chill; that Get
Grimes called special attention to thc
matter and said with an oath that he in
tended to Court-martial me for it, an(
would summon Devereux as a witness
that for sonic reason I was not Court
imartialed. but was allowed to resign11.
"I have inl my possessionl the olicia
record of a Court-martial whiich proves
on the sworn testimony of Gen urime
himself and Fourteen other witnesses
that the above charge contains no truth
The official record shows that the charge
were: 'Misbehavior in the presence o
the enemy' and 'absence without leave.'
Gen Grimes makes no allusion, cithei
in the charges or specifications, or in him
sworn testiuoney, to any lack of' duty
on my part during the inornin". U pon
my I)ctitio,i lie was imstruted to try the
case before the Court-martial of lthodess

oflicers who should try thei case. Brl

I received a certilicate from the sheril
of Anson County sho.ving that I had
been elected a member of' the I gisla
ture. That day I turned over my horse,
books, etc, to the proper aut.lorities, pre
paratory to leaving for Rale--ighi on the
11th. The commanding ollicer of the
regiment released me from duty, and oin
the m1orniig of the 19th 1 had prepared
to start home having previously field the
proper application for release f rom duty.
Finding that a battle was imminent I
went to the commandant of the regiment
and asked his opinion-as to whether I

under no obligation whatever to go, but
suggested that I speak to Gen (irimes
about it. After tle live oi battle was

asked Is advice as a 1.1icnd. IlIe advised
me to go in, sayiiig there might he talk
