Congressman Harry St. George Tucker
spoke to a crowded house at the Opera
House last night for over two hours.
At 8 o'clock Chairman Thomas, of the
city committee, introduced the speaker,
win) said: "I have como to present the
claims of your honored representative
in Congress, Paul C. Edmunds. None
is more faithful and honored than he. I
have sat with him in a Congress unpar?
alleled in history, that has disregarded
all public decency and the Constitu?
tion. I can tell you about the adminis?
tration of President Harrison, which
came in with a boom, and is going out
with n hoomlet. and which has become a
stench in the nostrils of all decent poo
"I can tell you how a man named
Tanner was appointed commissioner of
pensions, and every man who wore a
blue coat was putting his arm in Lho
treasury, when his resignation was
asked for, and Hann), who succeeded
him. is undergoing an investigation of
"When the money power has asked
for anything it has received recognition.
When the farmers and laboring poople
ask for relief they are thrown aside in
the committee room, and the monopo?
lists consume tho time. The session
just closed was controlled by conspira?
tors against tho rights of the people.
"I am a Democrat front the sole of my
feet to the crown of my head, and you
that know im?, know that I am a Demo?
crat because I believe the principles of
the Democracy are right."
This sentence was delivered with a
force and emphasis that caused Mr.
Tucker's collar, which was rather large,
to come unbottoned. Taking it and his
cravat otf and throwing them on tho
table he said: "I have got hold of one
of Tom Deed's collars, and won't wear
it. (Tremendous applause.)
"When we met in Congress there was
a surplus in the treasury of 9100,000,000,
but when Congress adjourned there was
a deficiency of 810,000.000. Mr. Dela
mater, the Republican candidate for gov?
ernor in Pennsylvania, thanked God
that he belonged to a party that could
get rid of tho surplus that troubled Mr.
Cleveland ho much. 1 would rather
thank ?od that 1 belong to a party that
would spend only so much of the peo?
ple's money as is necessary to pay the
expenses of the government/1
Sir. Tucker referred to the provisions
of the bankruptcy bill, the passage of
which bo said was the only logical ac?
tion of the House at its recent session.
Ho also thoroughly discussed pension
legislation, and said ho wanted to re?
mind every Virginian that he had a
' pensioner strapped to his back and was
1 paying from $15 to S-_'0 annually to help
support hint. "President Garfiold."
said he, "apologized for his vote for an
1 appropriation of 838,000,000 for pensions.
, saying that was the high tide, yet
under the pension appropriation passed
! by the recent Congress we now pay
$170,000,000, a largo fraction of it to
1 bummers and deserters who never smelt
While Mr. Tucker was discussing the
pension bill some fellow in the rear of
t the audience began to Interrupt, when
? the crowd yelled "Take him out," which
? was promptly obeyed. Taking up the
j McKinley hill, Mr. Tucker continued.
"In this matter of taxation I stand
on the platform of equal taxation for
all and special privileges to none, and
the man who does not like that expects
to get something on t of the government.
The policy of our Government that
must make it strong is one that makes
all taxation equal. Take away the feel?
ing of men that they are equally treated
with their fellow citizens, and you de?
prive them of liberty itself. 'You all
know what taxation means when the
sheriff conies around."
"I do." said someone in in the crowd,
'?for he took my cow the other day."
! Mr. Tucker brought down the house
by saying: "1 congratulate the cow."
He went mi to attack the theory of
the McKinley bill repeating Mr.
Dlaino's assertion that "it does not
open a market for a bushel of wheat or a
poundof moat,''and treated Dlaino's re?
ciprocity schone as an admission that
tho theory of the hill is wrong.
"What the Democrats want is free
trade, and a just and equitable distri?
bution of the taxes. The Republican
theory and practice is equal privileges to
none and special favors to a few."
He discussed the tariff at some length
and gave a convincing exposition of tho
position of tho Democratic party on this
question. He then took up tho Dodgo
election hill and recited its provisions
in detail, bringing out its possible effects
with remarkable force and clearness.
Mr. Tucker was a member of the com?
mittee to which it was referred, and he
stated that tho hill was never read in
the committee, room, and that it was
written by John Davenport, a ward
heeler of New York, and McKinley and
Lodge confessed that they were ignor?
ant of some of its provisions when it was
being considered by tho House. He
closed with a strong appeal to the peo?
ple to turn out and vote for Farmer Bd

Hinton Rowan Helper Writes a
Letter in the N. Y. Herald.
Tho following extract from tho Now
York Herald of Friday contains tho
major part of a letter from llinton
Rowan Helper, who in is:>r> published
one of the most important hooks of the
century, "The Impending Crisis of the
South." Mr. Helper is the uncle of
Secretary Hinton Helper, of the Com?
mercial Club. To Hinton Rowan Helper
belongs the honor of having originated
the scheme for an Intercontinental Pan
"At least forty years ago. American
built and lirst-class steamships, manned
by American masters, American mates
and American men. and under the
thrice beautiful and ever glorious Hag of
our great Republic, should have been
put into commercial service up and down
the entire length of the Atlantic and
Pacific coasts of both Central and South
America. With but little additional
delay wo should now accomplish what
WO then failed to perform.
"Yet it must be other and abler work?
ers than myself who will give efficient
j and requisite attention to the maritime
j branches, the oceanic ramifications, of
j our national development. All of my
I own limited energies and Inadequate

social questions. The emperor desires
tho passage of a measure for tho reduc?

Herr Von Maybach, minister of public
works, who was charged with prepara?
tion of a bill providing for tho erection
of dwellings for workmen in. every popu?
lous centro, has received the imperial
censure because of the incomplete con?
dition of his proposals. The trouble for
which Von Maybach hits been blamed is
due to restraints placed upon his action
by the ministry of finance. The em?
peror had a grand scheme, but Minister
Maybach, on consulting with Herr
Miguel, Prussian minister of finance,
found that there were obstacles to invest?
ing more than eight million marks in
building small tenements in the suburbs.
This obstacle applies to the general
position of the government in regard to
schemes for costly social reforms, and
accompanying projects for tho abolition
of duties on cattle and grain between
Italy, Austria and Germany, and leaves
