He Opens the Campaign
in Pennsylvania.
An Appeal to Republicans That
Should be Heeded. '
Citizen Press, Franklin, Pa.
On Saturday night, 12th inst., the re
publicans of Allegheny county opened
the campaign with a rousing meeting at
which Senator Ingalls, of Kansas, made
the principal address, followed by Sena
tor Delamater and Gen. Hastings. We
are only able to give brief extract from
Senator InghUY speech which was re
ceived with enthusiastic cheers.
Among other things he said:
Fellow citizens, in a popular represen
tative form of government political par
ties are indlspenslble and necessary.
Where there Is no dynasty, reigning
family, no hereditary nobility, no prero
gative nor class distinction the govern,
ment is there the party " in power, and
hence it Is that eveiy citizen should be
a politician, not In the sense of being
a candidates for office, but in the larger,
in the wider and in the nobler sense of
taking an Interest in public affairs.
(Applause.) And from the spectacle I
see before me I am inclined to think
that in the sense which I describe the
republicans of Allegheny county need
no further Instructions from me,.. Aid
not only should every citizen be a politi
cian, but a partisan politician. I never
yet have learned the lesson of belong
ing to the republican party a little. I
never yet have learned the lesson of vot
ing for the candidates upon the repub
lican ticket occasionally. (Applause.)
A man ought to be a politician an in
everything else a partisan politician.
lie ought to believe that his wife is the
best, his children the most attractive,
his state and country the noblest and
most deserving of his devotion, or he 4s
not worthy of having a wife, city, state
or country. (Applause )
A REPUBLICAN CLEAB THROUGH.
There is a certain class of politicians,
some limes belonging to one partj and
sometimes to the other, who are so ex
traordinarily particular that they lean
over a Ultle backwards (laughter), who
are never quite sure that they are mem
bers of a party unless they are voting
for the candidate of the other, and giv
ing aid and comfort to their adversaries.
( Applause. ) Therefore, . Mr. President
and fellow citizens of Pittsburg, -I con
fess to being a partisan politician, and I
have no sympathy for those who roll up
their eyes until you can see nothing but
the whites, and hold up their hands in
holy horror and enlarge the borders of
their phylacteries and stand on the cor
ners of the streets magnifying their own
virtues and thanking God they are not
as other men are, and not as other re
publicans. (Applause.)
If a man is a democrat, In God's name
let him be a democrat. Ee that Is filthy
let him be filthy still. And if a man be
a republican, in God's name let him be a
republican In off years as well as in
presidential years.
. Fellow citizens, I am often asked, be
ing; what is commonly called a republi
can republican, and what is known as 1
"republican from the head of the creek,''
in the west, In whom there is no varia
bleness, no shadow of turning, I am
asked what is the difference between the
democratic and the republican parties
what odds does it make, except that -the
one or the other shall . have the office?
I have one observation to make on that
point, I have one slight difference to
suggest as to the difference between the
democratic and the republican parlies In
the off years as well as the presidential
years, and that is that upon every issue,
upon erery question affecting the honor,
the welfare and the DrosDerltv of this
nation for the last thirty years the re
publican party has always been right and
the democratic party has always been
wrong. (Applause.) And It is just as
wrong at this particular moment of
time as it was in 1861. Slavery, seces
slon, state sovereignty, reconstruction,
the public debt, the national currency,
the resumption of speciel payment, the
coinage of silver, protection to American
industries. I say to you that every one
of the questions from the beginalng
down to the last syllable of recorded
time, even so late aa Thursday of last
week, has had the republican party on
its right side, and upon those questions
the democratic nartv has always been
wrong, world without end, amen.
. The democratic party Is' the damping
ground of politics in the nlne'eenth cen
tury. (Laughter and applause.) Every
concluded heresy, every abandoned
heresy, everything the nation hu got
done with and tried of and has cast
away to be trodden under the foot of
men, is the heritage of the democratic
party. (Applause.)
And lest this may seem to be harsh
censorous criticism, and lest I should be
called to account for some of those
wholesome statements and charged with
defamation, as I have sometimes been,
I beg to say that I have been In public
life for the past eighteen years and dur
ing that Ume the democratic party have
had control of the government, either in
whole or part, for fourteen years, and If
any democrat or any friend ot that or
ganlzation can point out to me a single
specific act that the democratic party
ever did, or ever proposed to do for the
welfare or advancement, either of the
moral, Intellectual or physical condition
of the country, I pause for a reply.
(Applause.)
Since the time to which ' I have re
ferred, when, under the sublime Incen
tive of the doctrine of protection to
American labor the reDutllcan nartv
took control of the affairs of this coun
try, there has not been an hour in which
the clock has struck, day or night, Sun-
nay or week day. In which there has not
been added to the material wealth of
this country $250,000. (Applause.) I
think, Mr. President, this is a record to
which we may, In the language of state
platlorms, "point with pride.'.' But the
democratic paily. true to its Instincts of
negation and criticism and censure, dur
ing all that period has performed the
function of a brake upon the great wheel
of national progress. The only function
of its leaders has been to hold on 'and
halloa "whoal" That same nartv is
1 r
today engaged in an attemptnefarious,
infamous, dangerous, insidious to ap
peal to the worst and most degraded
elements of society, and claim that this
majestic record of progress has been
against the interests of the people, and
in the interest of corporations, monopo
lies and capitalists, ' n ...,.
After speaking of the progress of the
country and the work accomplished by
the republican party in the interest of
labor and for the upbuilding of the na
tion, In refuting the charge that the
republican is sectional he said: ;
..There is today in one c the states of
this union a constitutional convention
sitting with the avowed purpose "of dis
franchising republicans and rendering
it impossible for them to vote now or
hereafter. There are states and con
gressional districts where by the enact
ments of democracy there remains
nothing but despotism and tyranny.
The last vestige of popular government
and republican principles has been over
thrown and there Is left of the declara
tion of Independence and the constitution
of the United States no more than Is ' in
Dahomey or Zululand. (Applause.) I
have many times said, Mr.' President,
and I say here again, that so long as I
continue in publio life, or In private life
for that matter, I will not desist in any
presence and in every presence from de
claring that the .struggle shall never
cease until It Is just exactly as safe for
a black republican to vote In Mississippi
as it Is for a white democrat in Pennsyl
vania. (Applause.)

A Better Man Wanted.
Greensville Republican.
Not a man of the few business men In
the First congressional district who are
urging the election of Mr.' A. A. Taylor
to attend to the public business would
even think of employing him to attend
to their own private affairs. Hence such
men of prominence who are supporting
him are office holders and expectants.
The idea of sending a man to con
gress who has had a law license for 18
years and hu never been entrusted with
any important suit above a pistol case,
Is so utterly absurd that thinking meq
are amazed,
The progress and development now go
ing on in east Tennessee, and especially
in this district, demand that we be repre
sented in congress by a man of the very
best capacity. And that is what the
people are now thinking about.
That is the reason for the strength of
the opposition to Mr. Taylor. The busi
ness of this district will not be sacri
ficed to the personal interest of a bread
and butter brigade any longer.

Campaign Echoes.
Mountain City Tomahawk.
P. M. Klser, Esq., of this place, ac
cording to the Knoxvlllo Journal, Is a
candidate for congress on the democratic
ticket. We presume It Is all a joke.
The Admnct walla "long and loud"
over the fact that wo notice nothing In 1
his article of abuse and slander
against Judge Butler only the charge
that "he never did an honest day's work
In his life." The fact of the business1
Is, there was nothing else to answer.
Tia true he had a string of old charges,
but they have been fully answered long
ago. The republicans answered them
four years ago by giving Butler the
largest majority ever received by a
candidate in this district In an off year.
A special to the Knoxvllle Daily Jour
nal, from Washington, announces that
the postmaster general has removed
W. R. Keys, postmaster at this place,
because he is for Judge Butler for con
gress, and has appointed J. C, Don
nelly, A. A. Taylor's friend, to the posi
tion. Well, that's what we call an
honorable discharge. We'll have more
to say of this proceeding by and by.
, Much has been said of late in refer
ence to the election bill. ; Mr. Taylor
has flooded this district with speeches
In Its support. From these speeches
only the opinion of those who favor it
can be obtained. A large nunber of
the true and trusted leaders of the re
publican party oppose It, including Hon.
Lewis T. Baxter, republican candidate
for governor of Tennessee, and Hon. R.
R. Butler, republican candidate for con-
gress. Below we give the opinion of
Hon. Leonard Brown, of Iowa, in ref
erence to the force bill. Gen. Clarkson
wrote him for an opinion and received
the following reply ;
"It Is the culmination of a series of
bad laws.. It is the dagger plunged
into the heart of the American republic.
not accidentally, but designedly. The
result 01 a conspiracy of plutocracy to
uesiroy aemocratic liberty. It Is the
winding up of AmeHcan liberty and the
Inauguration of an autocratic and pluto
cratic despotism."

Ho Convention.
Comet.
The Bristol Courier Is mistaken in its
statement that a convention has been
called to meet In Joneaboro, October7th
to nominate candidates for floater and
senator. Part of the committee recom
mended that a convention be called.
They had to power or authority to call
a convention. . They represented part
of the congressional committee, ap
pointed by Chairman Shields to aid in
the congressional election, and have
nothing to do with state elections.'
It Is safe to say there will be no con
vention at Jonesboro. Isaac Harr, Esq.,
representative ' of the state committee
for the First district, says he will not
call a convention to nominate candi
dates for senator and floater unless re
quested to do so by majority of the
regular chairmen. And as a majority
of the chairmen have, in vlew of the
action of the congressional committee,
already signified their desire to have no
convention, there will be none , called.
The republicans will have a chance to
"fight it out" all along the line. '
., . The Resolution.
The action of. the democratic commit
tee at Morristown in determining to hare
no candidate for congress was exceeding
ly unfortunate. No good for democracy
can come of It. In the end our party
will be disorganized and divided and will
have accomplished nothing except a sac
rifice of its own connections and its own
principles. Comet,
The Johnson City Comet must have
been eating green "Kow-Kumbers," or
something else that has "puckered" him
tip. He is considerably agitated over the
reeent action of the district executive
committee, and says a few things. So
far as nawklns and Hancock counties
are concerned we have not seen or heard
ot a democrat that does not approve of
the action of the committee at its Morris
town meeting, Weclnim to be u straight
goods as' the Comet or any other paper in
the state, and would favor running a man
if there was any show for his election,
but the way everything stands now we
fail to see where we can gain anything
by running a man this time. Bogertville

Who Is For Salef,

Hon. A. A. Taylor's friends are mak
ing the inlpression that they are very

that the game? If so, who is for sale?

Reciprocity.
Doylestown, Pa., Intelligencer.
Everywhere the sentiment in favor of
reciprocity, as defined by Mr. Blaine and
suggested by him as a national policy,
Is meeting with deserved endorsement.
It is the legitimate sequel of protection .
to American industry and is a fair and
promising advancement upon the theory
of a national governmental policy which
shall aid and encourage our citizens
who are producers.
Two extracts from recent publications '
are pertinent and timely as indicating ,
the tendency of public thought and sen
timent. The first paragraph is from the
New York Timet, as follows:
It Is plain that reciprocity is In the
air. It permeates the minds and spevch
of all who have to deal with fiscal leg
islation or to discuss it. Mr. Blaine s
advocacy of It Is a sign of the times. It
is not an original Idea with him. as we
have long since pointed out, his own ,
now pet plan for It having been brought
forward before he thought of it by Sena
tor Edmunds. But If Mr. Blaine is not
good at original thinking he Is a shrewd
observer, and he has a knack of seeing
what the mass of the people are think
ing and much facility in formulating
It.
The Timet renders duo credit to Mr.
Blaine for adopting and announcing the
theory of reciprocity If not In origina
ting the idea. The secoud clipping is
from the Philadelphia correspondence
to Wade's Fibr e and Fabric:
"Anything to give us a wider market
for our goods and more business," said
one of the brightest young manufactur
ers of this city, who manages a plant of
500 looms on cotton and woolen goods In
a conversation I had with him one day
last week. He said he knew of no busi
ness man who did not believe that Mr.
Blaine's policy was just what we need,
and said he, "we must have It by all
means if we really want a good market
for surplus products and enough busi
ness for all."
The tone of the business world is in
harmony with the views of the people
on reciprocity, and we sincerely hope
another session of congress' may wit
ness a decided and wise position taken
and legislation enacted in aid of this
polloy. !
Demoo ratio Acknowledgement.
Knoxvllle Montlnel.
The display of intellect, whether in a
good or bad cause, hu a peculiar and
inexplicable attraction. Ben Butler, with
all the weight of opprobrium that rests
on him, invariably commands attention
whenever he speaks or writes. More
audacious than either Butler or Blaine Is
Tom Reed, the speaker of the House.
He Is a man of force. He is a man of
great personal power, or he could not be
the Tom Reed of today.
There Is a dash and impressiveness a
strongly developed will-power .a firm
purpose to dare and to do a sauctness of
expression and a confidence in results
in all that he says that marks him as an
extraordinary man. It Is the extreme of
