TIIUKSDAY, SEPT. 13, 1S88.
. Official Paper of Comity anfl City.
; The opera house was crowded Satur
' daynignt by the best people of the
city and county, a good proportion of
. the audience being ladies which had
gathered to listen to the eloquence of
,' "Our Burton" and the other distin
guished gentlemen who had been in
vited to address the meeting.
There was observable throughout the
evening an intense earnestness and
htarty enthusiasm which made the
- ; audience a peculiarly receptive one.
- ' The generous applause which often
broke out proved that the speakers'
efforts were heartily appreciated.
v The meeting opened with music by
the Arion quartette.
D. R. Gorden, president of the Abi
lene Harrison and Morton club, then
briefly introduced Hon. J. B. Burton
. , who first quoted the famous 1840 stanza
commencing "Have you heard from
Maine, Maine, Maine, how she went
'. " hell-bent," etc., and gave ahappy paro
dy which aptly describes the result of
the coming Maine election. He then
read in his talented style a short, well
kaoivn noem. "The Empty Sleeve,"
written by David Barker, a brother of
our distinguished townsman, Col. C.
H. Barker. He formally opened his
address with an account of things in
Maine. He anticipated a glorious re
sult at the State election and told sev
eral Interesting anecdotes of his trip to
The speaker then referred to the
' promised visit of Mr. Blaine to Abi
lene. Mr. Burton said that at
. his iirst interview with Mr. Blaine and
with Chairman Manley the coming of
' the. great Statesman was conditional
upon a transcontinental trip. Hence,
Kansas being so strongly Republican
' might have to miss him. Afterward
Mr. Blaine talked more encouragingly
but said he wanted votes and perhaps
lie would think it best to remain in the
Turning to other matters Mr. Burton
referred in glowing terms to bis feel
ings of thankfulness for the honor
which the 68th district conferred upon
him last week.
Entering upon a discussion of politi-
. -. cul matters, the speaker put the issue
before the audience in the words of one
of the oracles of the dominant wing ol
'.' the Democratic party, Henry Watter
'"'" son, "free trade on one side and pro
jection on the other." The English
press, he said,, construed the Presi
dent's message as a free trade docu
ment. Each party claims to be in
favor of labor and it Is a grand lesson
for the Nation. Work is an absolute
nocessity to happiness and the dignity
qMabDr is the dignity of the !Nation.For
forty years tiefore the war the Demo
cratic party dictated the policy of the
country. They believed practically in
free trade. This resulted from the
fact that the Southerners did not want
protection. No manufacturing indus
try grew to amount to anything. Under
protection, manufactories have spread
over the continent. It is no wonder
that England wishes us to adopt free
trade. Cleveland has done the best he
could but even if great he is less than
his party. His party is the same as
" before the, war: T prove that the
Democratic -party aims to hold labor in
, chains Mr. Burton read from Watter-
'srtns ' Forum "article ' admitting that
, there is no fairness in the treatment of
the laborers of the South.
The speaker declared that he did not
-' believe in the usurious rates of interest
charged in Kansas, and that if elected
to the Legislature Tie would work for
the reduction of the rate of interest in
The free whisky cry was discussed.
Democratic office holders, saloons and
mnlsters are being taxed to support St.
John. The only four temperance
States were made so by Republican leg
islation. The saloons(?) of Maine
were spoken of, and the circuitous
routes necessaiy to reach them were
humorously described. He had found
Prohibition there a success. Regard
ing the "trust" cry of the party he re
ferred to Henry B. Payne's and Secre
tary Whitney's records. Trusts should
be controlled, by State law. He would,
if elected, try to place upon the Kansas
statute books a strict law against
'them-. . ik
After a brilliant peroration he
. .'t5uciHngjif thanked the people, of Abi
lene and fh'is county for their kindness
in honoring him and closed.
v-Senator-JI. P. Harkness, of Clay
Center was next introduced and dis
claimed aqy idea of making a speech.
He, liowever, devoted about twenty
minutes to. a discussion of the prohibi
tion question as opplied to Kansas,
lie cited the work of the Republican
"legislature of thr State and its readi
ness fo enact and amend any law that
the people can aek for. His case was
a clear, lojifal presentation of the
question and app-3jed toiitk reason ot
his auditors. SenatCJ Harkness tge

' in good humor by some happy hits and
then entering seriously into his address
he made a strong plea for thoughtful,
intelligent voters and politicians. It
is, he said, our duty to study the prin
ciples of the two great parties. In
brief words he sketched a few of Thur-

It was Mr. Robinson's first appearance
before an Abilene audience but his
eloquent and interesting address so
charmed bis hearers, we predict it is
far from being his last.
