J'liiiiADnu'iiiA, Penn., Sept. 13. Mem
bers of the American Agricultural and
Dairy association met today in its seventh,
annual convention in this citv. After a
few preliminaiies Jos. II. Beall opened the
convention with a long speech. lie staled
Hint the convention was called to celebrate
the mot important victory ever won for
agriculture the passage of the oleomar
garine law. Referring to the oleomargar
ine bill, he said it was the first content for
national legislation made in the history of
the country by farmers. They were vic
torious, for it was the' who fought and
won the battle; it was not money, it was
not argument, it was not party politics; it
was the irresistable power of the organized
army of farmers which marshalled up to
the doors of congress that secured the law;
it was the expression of their will by letter,
petitions and personal interviews that beat
down the walls of prejudice, forced practic
able, sensible and useful interpretation of
the constitution and overcame the power
of millious arrayed against them.
He urged his hearers to foster and en
courage dairymen by every- means in their
power, and declared they were much in
debted to the grangers ol the country for
the victory gained in securing the passage
of the bill taxing adulterated and counter
feit butter. The approval of the bill by
the president, lie said, was prompted by an
earnest desire to serve the best interest of
The speaker returned his sincere thanks
for the generous and unfailing support that
had been extended by the dairy farmers
and product merchants in the recent cam
paign against bomis butter. Kcferring to
the tari'lf laws. Mr. Beall declared it to' the
interests of all farmers to sec that the
were directed to the advancement and pro
tcotion of Ameiican Industry and so framed
as to give farmers the best home market
for their produce. Then there would be
just enough protection and a similar
amount of free trade.
Continuing, he said immigration shall be
regulated; confined to an acceptable class,
pledged to become citizens. The land laws
should be revised, and sales in large bodies
to aleins should be prohibited. Reason
able and practical regulations of inter state
commerce was necessrry, and the Cullom
bill for the establishment of a national rail
road commission now pending in congress,
would seem sufficient to accomplish this
In conclusion the speaker urged farmer.-,
and those interested in agriculture, to see
that his vote was cast this fall regardless of
party, for members of congress who voted
for The oleomargarine bill, and in case an'
were defeated for renomination, to select
the best of the two candidates in the field

To Josoph II. lU-all. Ki., lVfSldcut, etc.
My Dear Sir Your letter of the'kdinst.
supplementing our pleasant interview and
containing aninvitation to attend the na
tional convention of the American Agricul
tural and Dairy association, is received. I
should be glad" to accept the kind invita
tion tendered and avail myself of the op
portunity the convention will afford to me
a the representative of an interest so impor
tant and valuable as that which the farm
ers and agriculturists of the country have
The relation of this interest to the well
fare and prosperity of our land is so inti
mate that its proper and legitimate care and
protection is in my opinion a patriotic duty.
This consideration elevates the respond
bility of those in any ways intrusted with
our Tanning industry beyond the pale of
mere scltisliiies andshould induce conserv
atism and moderation. Demands made in
such a spirit cannot fail to exact a just and
appreciative response from those who make
ami execute our laws. 1 hope that the
coining convention may be productive of
the best results to the a"grieulturists as well
as to all the people of our country, and
though plans already made and engagement
already agreed upon w ill prevent my ac
cepting vour" invitation to be present. I
shall be much interested in its object and
purposes. Your sincerely,
Congressman Jas. Buchanan, of New
York, "addressed the convention on the sub
ject of the oleomargerine bill, and in his re
marks said he believed that during the next
session of congress efforts would bo made
either to repeal or modify the law, and he
advised the association to hold itself in
readiness to oppose such attempts.
Resolutions were adopted expressing the
sentiment that no man should be sent to
congress whose record is inimical to the
farming interest, declaring that the agricul
tural bureau should be made a cabinet de
partment, calling upon congress to revise
the tarill laws by imposiiujfsuch duties on
cereal and dairy products as to curtail or
stop foreign competition, asking congress to
restore the wool tariff of 83, approves Pres
ident Cleveland's policy in protecting pub
lic lands, and sympathises with workmen
in lawful efforts to better their condition.
After Mr. Beall was installed as presiding
officer the convention took a recess.

A correspondent writes to the Times in
reference to the resolution of the Limerick
branch of the National League, expressing
sympathy with Daley, the dynamiter,
whom the resolution describes as dying in

minds the Times that when Daley was ar

Birmingham, letters from Boeman which
proved that it was Daley's purpose to gain
admission to the strangers' gallery in the
house of commons and to throw a bomb on
the table during debate, Pafncllites, of
course, to be cautioned beforehand to be
absent on the occasion. If, continues the

Mr. J. J. Claucey, Parncllite member for
North Dublin county, arose in his place in
the house of commons this evening and
charged the government with refusing to
pay the slightest attention to Irish mem
bers when they urged remedies for local
grievances of the people of Ireland.
Lord Randolph Churchill replied that the
accusation was unfounded. He declared
the government was eager to remedy cvery
reasonable Irish grievance, and intended
for that purpose to develop the functions
of the local government board and board
public works in accordance with the views
of the Irish members if possible.
The government, he added, would make
proposals to parliament at the earliest mo
ment possible for placing all questions of
local government and public works in Ire
land in the hands of the Irish people, and
thought it would be no more than fair to
give the government time to develop these
intended measures instead of protracting
the business before the house by enforcing
the details "with constiuit repetition of every
imaginable grivcance which Irishmen

The Republicans Rally at Topeka.
Governor Martin's Address. AnAble
and Comprehensive, and
The Republicans of Kansas opened the
campaign last night at Topeka. The
principal speech was made by Governor
Martin, which, considered as a speech, was
a masterly effort, and which, considered in
the light of history and truth, in the light
progression and the needs and accomplish
ments of an advancing civilization, such as
Kansas boasts, it was a speech of which ev
ery Kansas man will feel proud. Govern
or Martin opened as follows:
31r. Chairman, and Ladlre anil Gcntltnicn1
The campaign in Kansas this year is
what is called an 'off-year" content. The
intense enthusiasm, the fierce excitement,
the great processions, with flags and ban
ners and music and resounding hurrahs:
the marvelous interest, dwarflng and ab
sorbing all other concerns, and even para
lyzing, for months, the everv-day business
pursuits and industries of the people all
these will be wanting in the campaign of
1SS6. And yet the interests involved in
the election that will be held in November
next are as momentous, and the ksuc de-'
pending on its result are quite :is important
to the "state, as were the interests and is
sues depending upon the result at the bal
lot box iu 1SS4. The one officer v. ho was
to be elected then, and not to be chosen
now, was the president. We are to choose,
iu November next, as we did two years
ago, a full board of state officers, seven
congressmen, a state legislature; a judge of
the supreme court, amfnearlv half of our
county officers. We are to elect men who !
will make our laws, national and state, :is '
well as men who will execute our state
laws. And as good local government really
concerns each individual "citizen far more
than do the acts of the president, because
it touches each and every citizen more di
rectly, it has always seemed to me that the
people, if they have a proper regard for
their own interests, ought to regard the
'off-year" elections with quite as deep in
terest, if not more anxious solicitude, than
they do the choice of the president.
DEMOCKACY IX KANSAS.
I appear before you as the candidate of
a great party, honored by its confidence
and proud tb bear its standard, to ask you
in its name for your support. I have been
a citizen of this state for nearly thirty
years. I came here, a boy of lb, when
Kansas wsis a poor, weak, "distracted terri
tory, rent and torn by civil war, invaded
by "hordes of rulllans" and marauders, and
suffering under all the evils of the worst
government that ever harrassed and op
pressed a free people. For more than
two years this intolerable lawlessness had
prevailed for nearly three years longer
it continued; and the party that confronts
us today, and is asking your support, is
the same party that, from 1831 to 18G1,
held Kansas by the throat, and by fraud,
and munder, and arson, and turbulence,
and every crime that ever disgraced hu
manity, endeavored to fasten upon it the
curse ot human slavery. !
Beaten in its attempt to enslave Kan
sas, the Democratic party plunged the!
whole country into civil war, and lor four '
long and bloody years the nation struggled j
on to universal freedom and national uni
ty, and this young state, that had been j
lighting for live years to get into the union,
now had to tight" for four years more to I
preserve the union. Republicanism and
Kansas were wedded together in this long
and terrible struggle. When Jefferson
Davis marched out of the senate, William
II. Seward moved to take up the Kansas
bill, and as the coat tails of the rebel chief
disappeared through one door, young Kan
sas smiling and triumphant, marched in at
KEPCBMCAN' CONTIIOL IN KIN-US.
For twenty-four years the Republican
partv controlled the government of the re
public, and from that day to this the Re
publican party has moulded, directed and
controlled the affairs and destiny of Kan
sas. Has the trust reposed in the Republi
can party by the people of this tate In-cn
misplaced or betrayed? Has it administer
ed the government wisely and humanely?
Has it justified, by its conduct, the reason
able expectations bf an intelligent people?
Has it enacted wise laws? Has it honestly
collected and disbursed the public reyen
ues? Has it maintained jK-ace? Has it
made liberal provisions for the education
of our youth? Has it fostered institutions
for the care and maintenance of the unfor
tunate? I las it remembered that the only
liberty that is valuable i3 liberty founded
on just laws and connected with" public or
der? Has it allied humanity with justice?
Has its rule promoted enterprise, fostered
agriculture, encouraged industry, and
nourished commerce? I la it cmfeavon-d
to further morality, to promote sobriety, to
upnrcss vice, to punih crime, to abolish
drunkenness, and to curb and vourge law
lessness. Has it, in brief, in the discharge
of its public trusts, made this state a great,
pro-jjerous, intelligent, law respecting com
monwealth, in which even citien enjoys
the largest possible liberty conLtent with
social order and a due regard for the rights
of his fellow men'' If these questions can
be answered in the nihrmative, the Repub
lican party lias a jun right to expect that
the people of Kansas will continue to give
it their confidence and support
What. then, are the facta? Kansas cele
brated onh a few months ago, the first
quarter century of her existence a a .'tate.
During all tli.it period, as I have vud, the
Republican party lias controlled its do-tin
ies and administered its government The
accidental break in the governor-hip, four
year ago, does not modify thw assertion,
for the legislature to, during tlmt period,
Republican by an overwhelming majority,
all the other state officers were Republicans,
and the local governments of the state
were, a a rule, of similar faith. The Re
publicans, therefore, controlled public af- j
fairs just as certainly and as firmlr. during t
the years la2 and iaz'.i, ?.i they Jul before J
and liave since. j
Tlie 5)eaker here follow with a stasis-,
tical and comparative statement taken from j
the official reconL?, showing just wliat Kan-'
sas ha accomplished under Republican j
rule and inspiration in twentr-flye yeans. '
KANSAS. THE CHILD OK THE KErrilUCAN J
In citing these facts and figure showing i
the marvelout growth of Kansas I am not
asserting or in'imating that our fellow riti ,
zens of other tiolitical organizations have
not contributed their full .'hare of the r. v i
enues necessary to build and maintain the
institutions tnumcrattd. Nor do I claim
that to Republicans alone are due all credit
for the marvelous growth of Kanaa-5. That
vrnnlA le a follr of which I hot I am not
capable. But it L true that thii womltrfuj
developeaeat coukYBot and would not have
occurred if tke government of the state had
becn-wUat oxr political opponents assert it
has been corrupt, tyranical, weak and bad.
I appeal to the average common sense of
any good citizen to make acswer whether
Kansas could possibly be what it is today,
one of the greatest and most prosperous
states of. the union, if its government had
been the weak and" -wicked thing demo
cratic orators and newr-papers assert tlmt it
has been? I appeal from Philip, drunk
with partisan prejudice, to Philip, sober
enough to realize the wonderful growth
and to be proud of the splendid state we in
habit. Here is the Kansas of our love and
our faith look around you and see it. Ev
ery citizen of the state, no matter what Jiis
political opinion may be, is proud of Kan
sas. And yet Kansas, more than any
other region under the shining stars, is the
product, the child of the Republican party.
Republicans have guided and directed its
irrowth and development from its infancy
to the full stature of its splendid manhood.
Republican intelligence, Republican policy.
Republican courage, enterprise and sa
gacity have inspired its laws, established
and moulded its institutions, and controlled
every fctep and stage of its marvelous de
velopment. There is no state in the Amer
icjin Union where there are, in proportion
to population, so many happy and pros
perous homes as are found iu the state of
Kansas, and are comfortably clad. There
is no sit down, even- day. to substantial
meals, nor where so many wives and chil
dren people, anywhere on the earth, where
so large a proportion are sober, intelligent,
and contented with their lots, a here in
Kansas. And this great stale, as I have
said, is the child of the Republican party
bone of its lwne and llesh of its flesh It
has grown great and powerful ami pros
perous because it has grown up under lit
publican laws and Republican direction.
Its schools its- churches its charities, its
institutions, its industries, have been
planted, nurtured and promoted under the
encouragement of Republican intelligence
Kansas i a shining illustration of the boneti
ccuce of Republican policy and principles
Its growth has surpassed that of any other
American state, because Kansas has always
leen a Republican state. The people know
this. The most bitterly prejudiced Demo
crat in the land realizes it, wonders at it
and in his secret heart rejoices over it
TUK TWO l-IiATKOKMs.
Our Democratic opponents, however,
challenge the right of the Republican par
ty to a renewnal of public confidence. And
o"n what grounds? Read their platform,
and you will see that the first and prlnci
pal plank is a general and vcrv bitter dc
nunciation or "all sumptuary laws, state or
national," and an emphatic "demand for a
return of the license system. They are op
posed, the platform declares, "to the nrin
ciple of constitutional prohibition." They
regard it as an invasion of "the individual
liberty and manhood ot the citizen." Anil
they favor, "instead of constitutional or
statutory prohibition, a well regulated and
just license system."
The Republican platform, on the other
hand, declares that "the people of Kansas
have adopted prohibition as the settled il
icy of the state, ami have declared that the
saloon, with its corrupt and demoralizing
influences, must go.'' 'The Republicans
arc, therefore, the platform declares, "In
favor of carrying out thts verdict iu fuvi r
of the people" by enacting laws to enforce
it, and by faithfully executing tho-e law-,
so that the -ale of intoxicating liquors, ex
cept for the purpacs specified in the con
stitution, may Ik mad lmjKissible."
On this qu'estiou, as you will see. the two
parties radically disagree. The Republi
cans take their stand fairly on the eonititu
tion of the stato on the action of the
