Congressman Towno and Judge Tarvin
Greeted by a Large Audience
It is generally conceded that the speech
of Congressman Towne, of Minnesota, at
the court house last night was one of the
finest political discourses ever delivered
in Maysville. It was about 7:45 o'cock
when he began, and for nearly two hours
he held the rapt attention of his audi
ence. He confined himself almost wholly
to national issues, and the applause was
frequent and enthusiastic.
He was especially strong when ho told
of the reasons which induced him to
leave tho Republican party, thereby for
feiting his seat in Congress. His ar
raignment of that party for abandoning
the principles of the immortal Lincoln
and forming an alliance with the money
power was vigorous and convincing.
Among other things he said that all Lin
coln Republicans should now bo Demo
crats. He referred to the unstable and
vacillating policies of McKinley, and in
graphic language showed how he had
turned from the "peace-at-any-price"
man before the war with Spain into a
veritable savage, lusting for blood; that
he was trampling the Declaration of In
dependence under foot and had inaugu
rated a war of conquest in the Philippine
Islands, without the advico or consent of
Congress, contrary to the Constitution.
He stated that if Congress had declared
the same intention in regard to the Phil
ippines as it had in regard to Cuba there
would be no occasion now for the slaugh
ter of tho Fillipinos, and no occasion for

Call and look over our line of Winter Un
derwear and you will be sure to buy. You
can save money by buying at the
the loss of our own blood and treasure in
prosecuting the war. He gave a lucid
explanation of the money question and
showed the importance of a Democratic
victory this fall in Kentucky. Withal he
sustained his reputation as one of Amer
ica's finest orators.
Mr. Towne was followed by Judge Tar
vin of Covington, who spoke of the effect
of the election in Kentucky upon the
fight in 1000. He confined himself chief
ly to local issues. He stated that he
grew up with Goebel in tli,e city of Cov
ington. That the latter started in life a
poor boy, without influence or aid from
any man, but that on account of his
brains, industry and fidelity to the com
mon people, had risen to the highest sta
tion in Democratic councils, and was on
throned in tho hearts of the common
people. Judge Tarvin was humorous,
argumentative and pathetic by turns, and
in his inimitable manner held tho close
attention of the large audience until
nearly eleven o'clock.
Altogether it was a great demonBtia
tion and shows that the Domocracy of
Mason County is fully aroused and can
be relied on to go to the polls and do their
duty on November 7th.
