Thurman, chahmati of the Democratic
state committee, on being nsked to-day
what he thought of Secretary Carlisle's
speech, said: "To all those who are eon
er.sant with the history of the subject, It
13 simply laughable to think that the great
secretary of the treasury. In defense of
the administration and sound money, has
been compelled simply to make the same
speech that has been made by John Sher
man each yenr for the lat twenty years.
It Is almost a dead copy, and has been an
swered over and over again, until the peo
ple are weary otlt. The same dishonesty
pervades It as docs the copy from which it
is taken, but In the case of Mr. Carlisle It
Is worse, because he pretends to be a Dem
ocrat anil then states that Democratic sen
ators, and among them my father, voted
for the act of 1S7.1. He Is trj Ing to create
the Impiesslon all the while by his state
ments that they did this with the full
knowledge of what the bill contained, when
he knew that eerv one of those senatots
and representatives (including the grand
old lieck, from his own state, whom he
tries by misrepresentation to help bolster
up his own ttaltomus position), denied In
open senate that they had any knowledge
of what he tries In this speech by fraud to
make people believe they (lid. As, for In
stance, Judge Thurman t-ald' 'I cannot sny
what took place In the hoin-o, but I know
when the bill was pending In the senate
we thought It was simply a bill to reform
the mint, regulate coinage and llx- up one
thing and another, and there was not a
single man In the senate, unless a member
of the committee from which the bill came,
who had the slightest Idea that It was even
a squint towards demonetization.' Nearly
every member of the senate and house
made similar statements. Why did not Mr.
Carlisle tell the whole truth? Can the peo
ple believe such a man honest'.'"

valuable assistance and advice In connec

at any time If any more was needed. This
we did not do, as we knew of several in

Saturday night, The meeting has been
called by the general committee nnd will
bo addressed by prominent speakers who
favor tho adoption 0 tho (intendments.
In addition to this, the first publlo meet
ing of the campaign ,of education, the x-
ecutlve committee arranged for a seiles
of ward meetings. Sub-committees were
appointed to secure hulls, speakers nnd
ptepare literature which will set out the
facts environing nil of the propositions In
their true light. The committee laid n.
meeting In City Counselor JIcDougal's of
fice yesterday afternoon and set the cam
paign In motion. '
This meeting was supplemented by n
general assembly In tho committee he.id
miaiters, nt 711 Delaware street, nt which
over luO leading citizens were present, nnd
at which the plans for a vigorous on
slaught on tho enemies of progress were
perfected. Committees to take charge of
the work of stirring up the voters were
named for each ward. Nearly all ot the
lr era of tluso committees were present
and pledged themselves to tnko sudden
and vigorous hold on the unwary -voter
nnd see to It that he Is nililsed of any
meetings In his ward, and that he attends
or gives satisfactory renons for staying
These committees were named without
reference to the political faith of the
membership, the plan being to get as
many men .it work for the amendments as
possible nt shortest posslblo notice. It
was pointed out that the c.impiign must
be short, as but two weeks remain be
tween this and election liny. During that
time tho mlnppreher!.di!n nnd doubts of
tho people must be removed nnd the
slothful and uninterested anakenul to the
necessity ot piompt and energetic work
Chairman Campbell, ot the general com
mittee, presided at the meeting last night.
In calling the meeting to order, he said
the representative business men piesuit
were called together to handle a hlg busi
ness Question; on, ot vital importance to
every man, woman and child In the city
limits. He said the original meeting was
necessarily small for the purpose of fram
ing an organization around which the
friends ot tho advancement of the city
could rally. The campaign thus com
menced was to be one purely of education,
In which the element of politics had no
place nnd should not ho permitted to en
ter. It had bem thought best by the ex
ecutive committee to havo a general meet
ing nnd discussion as to tho best manner
in which to carry on the work.
Seen tary L. A. Hlrschlleld, of the In
dustrial Council, said th it he regretted that
an evening paper had published an al
leged story that certain labor leaders are
engaged In a war on the amendments, and
that they nio receiving pay for doing so.
IIo said this was nn Injustice to the la
boring men of the city, ns tney were sol
idly for parks nnd boulevards and the city
ownership of tho water works. When the
water works question was first mooted In
this city, the council had canvassed the
labor organizations and secured the In
dorsement ot every one for tho purchase
of tho plant. He Invited the meeting to
name a. sped il committee to visit the
council, and pledged that ho would In
troduce the members to the council nt lt,s
meeting to-night ami securo for all not
only a hearing, but disabuse the publlo
mind of the Idea that tna labor clement
Is against the amendments. Mr. Hlrsh
field was heartily applauded for his stand.
Chairman Fuller, of tho executive com
mlttee, said that his committee had named
sub-committees to secure halls and speak
ers and to prepiro and distribute lltera
tuio and he asked that they be assisted by
committees from each ward. Ho moved
that a committee of three be appointed
from each of tle ten wauls to co-operate
with the executive committee In carrlng
tho campaign Into oviry precinct of the
John Sullivan said that tho motion
should prevail. Tho meeting must select
men who would gepout at once nnd secure
others to help In the work. What was to
to bo dono must be done quickly, ns there
was no time to waste in preliminaries.
V, J, Halt said that anyone who vva3
sultlclently Interested to'attend tha meet
ing, would be sulliclently interested to get
out and hustle. He urged that the motion
be adopted and that the roll of the wards
bo called. This was done and tha follow

Colonel Hunt moved that the ward com

when tho committees: got to work, many 11
good man would be mot with, who would
be of great nslstimce In getting out the

The chair appointed Colonel Hunt, D. J.

mittee. .Mr. Duffy regretted that nny report
should have gone out that the laboring
clement Is against the amendments He
said this was nn Injustice to them nnd
that In his ludgment the laboring vole Is

adopt resolutions to be submitted to tho

mittee named had full power to do this
and nlsn piesent the views of the meotlng
