HOGAN'S FIGHT IN MONTANA
Deputies and Commonvealcrs Come to
a Bloody Issue at Billings.
THE DEPUTIES FIRE FIRST
Five Hundred Coxeyites Arrive on Their
Stolen Train and the Authorities Attempt
to Stop Them President Cleveland Takes
a Hand After a Careful Conference.
Billxsob. Mont, April 25. At noon to-day
the 500 members of Ilognn's army, on their
stolen train, arrived in this city, nnd cIojo on
their hccla was a train bearing Ufty deputies.
A conflict between tho deputies and tho
army was at onco precipitated, which re
sulted in ono man on each sido being severely
wounded. Tho deputies overtook them at
Columbus, a small station, and demanded
their surrender. Gen. llogon paid no atten
tion to tho commands of tho deputies to give
up possession of tho stolen train and ordered
his men 10 co ahead.
Tho two trains camo on slowly during tho
nlternoon, tho deputies closely following after
tho Coxeyites, and watching for an opportu
nita to seize them and their trains.
On arriving at this city, a stop was ordered
and tho conilict resulted. United States Mar
shal McDermott ordered tho leaders of tho
iiray to surrender, and on their refusal, a
few or the deputies, uenously and without
any orders, fired upon tho men in the cars.
A few shots were exchanged before tbo mar
shal could regain control of bis men and stop
During tho firing ono of the deputies was
seriously wounded and at least one of tho
nrmy was wounded. Thtre was a report that
"General" Hogan was himself wounded three
times, but the fact that tho train has pulled
out for tho East makes it impossible to con
firm that report.
Marshal McDermott decided that his men
were not equal to the work eut out for them,
und as soon as be got his mch to stop llring
bo withdrew them and notifled tho authori
ties that his force was insufficient for tho ar
resting of so large a mob.
Tho train bearing the army soon afterward
slowly started for tho East again, and so far
as heard here till late this atternoon was still
continuing ou tho way to Miles City, whero it
is expected the national troops will bo suc
cessful in stopping tho train and regaining
possession of the property nnd placing it In
tbo hands of the courts.
Has Hogan Hccn Captured?
St. Paul, Minu., April 26. It -is reported
in this city that the Coxey army from Montana
on tho stolen train has been captured.
CLEVELAND IN CONSULTATION.
Was Well Advised Itcforo the Telegram
as Sent to Tort Kcosli.
There hts been manifested already hi Con
gress a disposition to criticise tho President's
action in ordering out tho United States
troops to stop Hogan's Montana train; it may
be proper to set out the facts that Influenced
tbe executive branch of tho government in
First, it appears that tho Hogan party, 500
strong, applied to tho Northern Pacific rail
road authorities for tranportion free to
Washington. This was refused by tho re
ceiver. Then the men broke into a round
bouse, captured an engine and made up a
At this stage tho railroad authorities ap
plied for and obtained from tho Federal court
an injunction to restrain them. The author
ity for this was the fact that tho railroad is
now in the hands of the United States and tbo
courts nre responsible for its management,
through a receiver.
Tho Hoganites disregarded tbo injunction,
and tbe court issued writs of arrest against
them forcontempt ofcourt. When theUnited
States marshal sought to serve theso writs,
ho with his deputies was locked up by the
Hoganites, and tho party ran away with the
tram beaded for 'Washington.
Finding themselves unable, with tho re
sources ar lueir command, to carry out tho
lawful process of tbo court, the Judge and
the United States Marshal telegraphed for aid
to Attorney General Olney. Tho latter saw
tho President Tuesday night, and Gen. Scho
lleld, commanding the army, than whom no
man has a more extended knowledge of tho
legal functions ot the army as a posse com
mitatus, was called into the consultation.
It was soon settled that there was not only
warrant, but necessity for executive action.
The property seized was within Tederal con
trol nnd the mob haa resisted the mandates
of tho Federal courts. Sections 5,2a7 to 5,316
of tho Revised Statutes authorize tho use of
Tederal troops to suppress Insurrection,
rebellions, and conspiracies, which prevent
the enforcement ot judicial process of civil
proceedings of laws of the United States.

WOWAK SUFFRAGE DEBATE.
Young Men's Christian Association and
Wimodaughsis Discuss the Subject.
Tho parlors of tho 'Wimodaughsis Dome
were crowded last night on the occasion of
tho debate between the members of this club
and several from tho Young Men's Christian
Association. Tho question under discussion
was. "liesolved, that women should be al
lowed to vote," the affirmative being sup
ported by the ladles, Mrs. Haven, Mrs. Colby,
and Mrs. Piatt, and the visitors, Mr. Werner,
Mr. Freeman, and Mr. Goodwin, upholding
Doth sides ably presented their arguments,
but tho young men were considerably handi
capped because they wore not particularly
anxious to enter into the discussion with tho
representatives of tho other sex, who were
able to offer their com let ions with much
more encouragement because tho audience
was comiosed.mainly of ladies.
After a debate of about two hours' length
Gen. William BIrney, who acted as judge, an
nounced tho result of the contest in favor of
tho ladies of tho 'Wimodaugnsis, which was
heartily approved by tho audience.
Hon. Trcdcrick Douglas' Lecture.
There was a largo audience present at the
lecture given last night by Hon. Frederick
Douglas at the Metropolitan A. M. E.
church for tho benefit of tho colored Young
Men's Christian Association. The lecturer
was introduced by Justice Harlan, who pro
sided. Tho subject was "Self-mado Men,"
which the speaker divided into four ideas;
first, who Is tho self-made man; second, what
is tho secret of his tueeess and tho theory of
his development; third, what advantages
men derive from their surroundings;
fourth, the criticisms to which they, as a
class, are exposed. Tho self-made man,
said Mr. Douglass, is tho one whoso energies
are lashed by necessity and ambition lured
by hope. Ho can only bo found where there
is toil nnd hardship, and not where the
atmosphere is filled with fragrance and tho
trees abound in fruit The self-made man
loves work. Opportunity is important, but
exertion IS indispensable, ltio man 01 worlc
is the man of luck, and the man of bad luck
is the lazy man. Mr. Douglass snid that the
negro has never had fair play, he has never
been emancipated, only turned loose. It is
not a wonder that the colored man has not
made more progress, but that ho has made
rire in the Penitentiary.
Colcmbia, S. C, April 25. rire this after
noon destroyed tho hosiery factory situated
within tho walls of tho penitentiary and op
crated by private parties. Tho building was
owned by the state and was a total loss,
there being no Insurance. The building was
valued at $8,000. Totul loss by fire was $20,
000, including tbo machinery and stock of
goods. Tho mill wa3 operated by convicts.
Owing to the inflammable material of the
stock, it was impossible to get tbo lire under
control. Tho convicts had quit work and
had been marched to their quarters. There
was no stampede among them, and some of
them assisted the fireman in fighting tho
flames. The flro is supposed to have started
by a convict who was left to lock up tho fac
tory. m .

"Windy White Turns Up Again.
Fbederick, April 25. Tho Coxey army is
halted for a weary day in Camp Lnyfayette.
It is the most dreary camp that has been
pitched sinco leaving Cumberland, on tho
baseball common without a tree or shado of
any sort. Tho wagons are huddled together,
camp refuse is scattered nbout and tho ground
has been tramped into mud puddles by tho
crowds of men and horses. Tho weather has
turned warm, and tho hot sun beating down
on tho unprotected camp, already has begun
to raiso the odor that accompanies a largo
gathering ot men without adequate sanitary
The men are as impatient of tbo delay as
any ono and are fretting to bo on tho rnov o.
Why the stop has been made no ono can tell.
Browno and Coxey simply say there is plenty
of timo to reach Rockvillo on Saturday. It
has been practically decided to accept tho
offer of II. P. Waggaman for a camp at Wood-
Most of tho commonwealers are resting in
camp, only n few of them appearing in town.
So far tboy havo heeded tho temperance lect
ure that Browno inserted in his general order
this morning. It said in part:
"Refrain from begging, either on the street or
from priv-ate houses. Also refrain from filling
up on bad whisky. A little good whisky taken
in moderation won't hurt you, but anyone of you
drinkiug Immoderately may consider himself
dismissed from the commonweal."
When ho finished reading the order to some
of tho correspondents, Browno said:
"It took u good deal of morid rourago to
say that, but I believe I am right; and I will
handle any men on that basis."
The friction between 3Iaor Fleming and
tho commonwealers continues. Tho mayor
was disgusted when the army marched into
town with Its music yesterday, and to-day
wnen isrowno went to mm lor permission to
go through tbe btreets with his bass drum
and mnko announcement of the meeting to
night ho was refused. Browne insist, that
tho monopolists are trying to forco him into
active hostilities, but that he will sutler any
thing before being goaded to violence. Tho
citizens laugh and say tho mayor is over
sensitive. Tho meeting last night was crowded, and
in splto of the restriction against bas-drum
advertising it is likely to be crowded again
this evening. "Windy" White, tbe trumpeter,
who was discharged In Williamsport, and has
since been redischarged at every stop along
the read, turned up j esterday in company
with thlrty-flvo men, who had been camped
outside town waiting for tho army. Tho
thirty-four men were accepted, but White's
application was again refused, and ho started
out to walk to Washington, saying ho would
get there in timo to seo tbo whole army
"pulled." Two of tho new recruits got to
fighting soon after their urriv al. They were
discharged, and went away to walk with the
bugler to Washington.

POPULIST COXEY CAUCUS.
Tho Good Roads Movement Not Indorsed
as a Third Party Policy.
- Tbo Populist Senators and Representatives
in Congress were in caucus lost night at tho
Populist headquarters from 8 until 10.30
o'clock, to reach an understanding as to the
Populist attitude toward the oncoming Coxey
There were present Senator Stewart, of Ne
vada, nnd Senator Allen, ot Nebraska, and
Representatives Penoo and Belt, of Colorado;
Baker and Harris, of Kansas; Boen, of Min
nesota; Kem and McKoigbnn, of Nebraska;
Chairman Taubcncck, of tho national com
mittee, and tho members of the Virginia State
central committee were also there.
Tho Coxoy movement was fully discussed.
Whilo there was no endorsement of tho move
ment, tbo speakers urged that it was the
legitimate and natural outcome of national
legislation. Senator Stewart urged with his
usual vigor that tho "gold anarchists" were
responsible for tbo popular uprising.
The main discussion was as to the steps to
bo taken to avoid conflict and bloodshed
which might ensuo if the polico or militia
tcok radical 6tcps. Gravo iars were ex
pressed as to ,tho outcome of tho next few
days. It was pointed out that whilo tho Coxey
men might be well-intentioned nnd harmless,
their coming would probably bo utilized by
tho thugs, toughs, nnd the worst elements of
Baltimore, Philadelphia, and adjacent cities
to como hero and commit depredations which
would be charged to the coxejs.
The caucus learned also through private In
formation to Populist headquarters that largo
bands not yet recorded were headed this way.
Ono of these was lead by Ralph Beaumont, a
prominent figure in Populist councils, and
was mado up of 300 Oklahomans.
Tbo Allen and Boen resolutions now pend
ing before Congress were discussed and tho
former received general npproval as voicing
the attitude of tho Populists toward tbe move
ment Xo formal resolutions were adopted, yet a
pretty full understanding was reached as to
tho situation. Tho Coxey good roads bills
are not endorsed as they are no part of Topu
list doctrine. There is no desire to discourage
them, however, but to give Coxey tho same
right as other citizens to advance his views.
Neither is the method of assembling peaco
armies endorsed to beselgo Washington, yet
as such armies are in existence tho Populists
will recognize tho fact and endeavor to
ameliorate tbo condition of tboso who como
nnd to protect them from invasion of their
rights of speech, petition and peacoablo as
sembling. It is reported nt Populist headquarters that
Gen. Coxey In person will bo hero by Satur
day, preceding the entrance of tho army by
several days, and it was partly in anticipation
of the excitement attending his nppearanco
that tho meeting was advanced from Saturday
night to last night
THEIR CO.STITLTIONAL RIGHTS.
Senator Allen's Resolution That Unarmed
Citizens .May Peaceably Assemble Here.
Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, offered tho follow
ing resolution yesterday, for which he asked
Whorea9, It Is currently reported- that un
armed, law-abiding, und peaceably disposed
but unemployed citizens of the United Mates
are about to peaceably assemble In the city of
Washington and to petition the government for
a redress of their grievances; and
Whereas, Threats of arresting such persons
hare been made on their entering in the Dis
trict of Columbia, and the city of Washington,
therefore be it,
lteolved, first That under the constitution of
theUnited Mates, citizens of the United Mates
regardless of their rank and station in life have
an undoubted and unquestionable right to peace
ably assemble and petition the government for
a redress of their criev ances at any place within
tho United Mates, where they do not crcato a
breach of the peace, menace or endanger per
sons or property, or disturb the transaction of
the public business, or the free use of Btreets
and highways by the public.
fcecond That such persons havo as undoubted
a -right to vUlt and assemble In tho city of
Washington for anr and all bcaceable tiurioses
as in other portions of territory belonging to tbe
Jurisdiction of the United Mates, at all times be
ing amenablo to tho law for any violation there
of. Third That Buch persons haTe a right to enter
on the Capitol grouuds ot the United Mates and
Into tbe Capitol building itself as fully and tu as
great an extent as other citizens or persons as
long as they do not disturb or hinder tbe trans
action of the public business, mcaaca tho public
pence or rights of persons and property, and
any threat of v iolence to such persons under
such circumstances would be a clear violation ot
their constitutional and Inalienable rights.
Fourth That we commend the prompt en
forcement of all Just constitutional laws looking
to the preservation nf the public business and
the prevention of crime, but under pretense of
preserving the public peaco and the prevention
and punishment of crime peaceable and law
abiding citizens must not be disturbed In the
full nnd freo exercise of their constitutional

AS VIEWED BY THE ADMINISTRATION.
The Position of the l'cdcral Government
Toward the I'cacc Annies.
According to tho present intentions of the
administration no attention will bo paid to
tho Coxey movement by tho government un
less the necessity for action is thrust upon
the Federal authorities so that it cannot bo
This information is obtained from tho best
authority, and the position of tho President
and his advisers was outlined to a Times re
porter by one in a position to know.
Tho question whether Coxey's men shall be
permitted to enter tho District will bo consid
ered a matter for tbo action of tho local au
thorities. If the commonwealers viclato any
municipal laws they will bo dealt with by tho
polico officials. If they violate tho regula
tions of Congress by assembling on tho Cnpi
tol grounds they will bo handled by tho Capi
tol police, who are under tho supervision of
tho Sergeants nt Arms of tho Senate and
Theso officials can call tho local polico to
their aid. In tbe event of trouble which can
not bo subdued by tbo rH'e. the District
Commissioners are empowered by law to cull
upon the Washington militia, of which there
is a brigado of 1.200, commanded by Gen.
Only in case of an appeal for aid from tho
Commissioners on tho ground that the new
comers cannot bo handled by tho municipal
forces, will the general government take a
hand nnd order out Federal troops. Tho ad
ministration does not feel called upon to take
official notice of disorder in tho District of
Columbia more than it would bo impelled to
taka a hand in the preservation of order in
nuy state. Nevertheless, tho gov eminent and
local authorities are acting in harmony and
with a mutual understanding in tho matter.
An Adv crsc Reply.

Senator Harris Wants Five Hours of
Tariff Talk Daily.
DEMOCRATS MEAN BUSINESS
Vest Declares That the Bill Will Be Pushed
to Progress Against AH Opposition Dolph
Gets a Lesson on Propriety in the Senate.
Aldricb, Leads the Opposition.
Yesterday marked tho beginning of active,
operations In tho pushing of the tariff bill by
tho Democratic majority in tho Senate.
Senator Harris, of tho Finance Committee,
who is tbo parllmentary custodian of his
party in tbo Senate, fired the first shot into
tbo Republican stronghold by asking unani
mous consent to consider the tariff bill from
1 until C o'clock each day this week.
This, as n matter of course, was refused by
Senator Aldricb, general of tho Republican
forces, who said ho bad no objection to bo
ginning tbe discussion at tho hour named,
but would not consent to sit until C.
After some banter.it being made manifest
that the resolution would be voted down, its
consideration was deferred until to-day, nnd
tho bill was taken up by paragraph and read.
Senator Aldrich then in person lead tbo
first charge of tbo Republican forces on tho
date fixed for tho bill to go Into effect In
tho courso of his remarks ho said there was
not a feature of tbo bill which would not
strike a deadly blow at some American in
dustry. No bill over had been introduced in
either house of Congress which so completely
revolutionized tho policy inaugurated by tho
founders of the nation and which had been in
force over n hundred years.
Considering tbe first amendment in the
first paragraph, changing the time whan the
bill sbould take effect from tho 1st to tho 13th
of June, 1831, beasserted that there was not a
Senator on tho Democratic sido of tbe cham
ber wbo was sosancuino as to believe that the
bill could become a law by tbe date fixed in
the amendment, unless the suggestion made
yesterday by the Senator from Texas, (Mr.
31111s.) to resort to revolutionary methods, in
volving tho co-operation of the vice-president
and limit debate, was carried out.
The Rbodo Island Senator then maintained
that no ono knew tho form in which the bill
would finally bo presented for the vote of tho
benate, and intimated that the Democratic
Senators were patching up compromises all
tbo time to catch the votes of their unwilling
To this bold statement Senator Vest, of tbe
committcs, took exception, and after some
lanco breaking. In which Senator Aldrich said
that, if the Missouri Senator did not know it.
it was nevertheless going on, he reiterated
his demand for a later date for the taking
effect of tho bill.
In this vein Senator Aldrich continued for
half an hour, when Senator Fryo sounding
tho famous old dilatory bugle-call ot no
quorum, summoned sixty Senators out of the
restaurant from half-finished lunches to hear
Piatt, of Connecticut, speak.
Mr. Piatt, continuing bis remarks, said that
ho bail not Intended to occupy tbe attention
of tbo Senators so long, but on second
tboughs he realized that ho had not been oc
cupying their attention nt nil (laughter). He
remembered reading in Scripture about the
deaf adder which will not bear and ho knew
of no way of making Democratic Senators
listen to the tariff debate. But they were soon
likely to hear an expression ot tbe sentiment
of the people which they were not likely to
forget and which no running into closed
rooms would enable them to cvnih?.
Then Senator Palmer came in for n speech,
Interruptions from Senators Aldrich, Mitchell,
and Dolph especially the latter who was un
usually refractory yesterday consuming
about nine-tenths ot tho Illinois Senator's
time. To such an extent did this go that
many peoplo supposed it was a continuation
of Dolph's intermittent speech until informed
of the state ot affairs.
Finally Mr. Allison got a few words In and
offered an amendment comprising Senator
Aldrich's point nbout tho date of going into
effect, protesting against the short timo al
lowed to prepare for tho bill, and urging that
tbe date bo left blank.
This proposition was not listened to, and
Mr. Dolph then took it into his bead to read
and comment on a speech of non. Tom L.
Johnson on tho bill, delivered In tbe House.
Senator Gray raised a point of order for
commenting on the remarks of a member of
the other House while he was not present to
answer for himself.
Mr. Dolph protested, but tho Vice President
sustained the poiut of order whereupon tho
persistent Mr. Dolph appealed. lie was
defeated on his appeal and had the company
of just ono Senator, when Senator Harris
moved to lay tho appeal on tho table, all other
Democrats and Republican's in the Chamber
voting against him.
Only ono thing remained to complete a
usual" session of tho Senate a silver speech
Irom Stewart. Almost by intuition he began
one, nnd tho Senate adjourned.
CO.MPRO.MISE TARIFF BILL.
Senator Bricc Sajs One Is Prepared and
Will He Enacted.
Tho Democratic Senators are united in tho
necessity ot seeing the speedy passage of a
tariff bill, and of fixing tho date for its going
into effect sufficiently early to have tho busi
ness of the country settled before tho Autumn
election. Such was the sentiment in tho air
j esterday, and it was voiced by.SenatorBrice,
who declared that tbe bill would go through
early in June and before that if tbo Republi
cans get through talking before that
Tho bill which is agreed upon nnd which
is to get the support of nil the Democratio
Senators even of Hill, it Is said was pre
pared by Secretary Carlisle, representing tho
administration, who has had frequent con
sultations with tho President, and Senator
Jones, representing tho Finance Committee,
Senators Cockrell, Gorman, nnd Brlce, and
some others who havo interested themselves.
This bill it is asserted without fear of con
tradiction will pass, for it appears every ono
hud been consulted who "kicked" with
sufficient vigor to mako it wise to consult
blm. and had been personally placated and
Senators Brico nnd Jones are not telling
what the changes In this newly born bill nre.
But it is said by Senator Brice that the bill is
a compound of tho Senate bill, the McKinley
bill, tbo Mills bill, an "such information as
has been furnished," and will therefore have
all the discordant views of dissenting Sen-'
Senator Brico says the new bill will bo
brought into tho Senate in the form of amend
ments offered by tho Finance Committee to
tbe pending bill, and will be supported by the
Democrats in tbo Senate. Senator Vest, how
ever, said yesterday he knew nothing about
any contemplated committee amendments.
Regarding the income tax, Senator Brice
snid it would stay in the bill with some
changes and limitations. As to himself he
bad not asked or dictated a single schedule,
but had simply aimed to secure a reduction of
about 30 per cent from tho McKinley law.
The bill when passed is to go into confer
ence, and a strong conference committee will
be mimed and some more changes will be
made. Bat tbo bill will ultimately pass, and
according to Senator Brice tbe three princi
pal pledges of the Democracy will have been
performed the repeal of the silver purchase
act, tbe repealof the election laws, and a tariff

OPERATIC HARMONIES AFLOAT.

That tho pUDlls would do credit to them
selves was a foregone conclusion, but it is
doubtful if they ever rendered a progrnmmo
with more olcaslng effect or better harmony
than on last night The "Porter" song from
"Martha" and tbe "Veoman's Wedding"
song, Dy Mr. J. Osborne Clemson. opened the
programme, and this was followed with a
duet from "Favorlta." by Miss MaryMc
Culloch and Slgnor Mnlno.
One of the main features of tho evening
was tho rendition of the entire third act from
"Faust" in recital form, the parts being sus
tained by Chev. Agostino 3Iontegriffo as
Faust. Mr. H. G. Meem as Mephistopheles,
Miss Bertha Mallhouso as Slebel, Mme. Paul
ina Moutegriffo-Maina as Martha, and Miss
jiary ueien iiowo as Jiargaret utner num
bers were tho romanza "Cavalleria Rusti-
cann," tho Ave Maria from "Otello" by Mrs.
John Seager, and the comic duet from "Bar
ber of Sevillo" by Mme. Malna and Mr. Meem.
Tho final piece was the fourth act of "III
Trovatore" in costume, with Chev. Monte
griffo as Maurico. Slgnor Malna as Count of
Luna, and Miss Mamio Donnelly as Leonora.
A more classically selected cr more perfectly
executed programme could not havo been
staged, and the power, forco and melody de
rived from the vocalists and tho choruses at
tested to the rich talent of tho performers and
tho ability of Mr. Maina as an instructor.
Postal Pension Fund.
Representative Goldzier, of Chicago, at tho
instance of tho Chicago Letter Carriers' Asso
ciation, has presented to Congress a plan for
a self-sustaining postal pension fund, modeled
somewhat after Bismarck's plan for pensions
to civil employes of the government. The bill
provides for a deduction of 1 per cent of tho
salaries of carriers, which shall be accumu
lated as a benefit fund for employes suffering
from disabilities and for thoso retired after
long and honorable service. A3 the measure
emanates from the carriers, it is assumed that
thenfling deduction in their salary will be
acceptablo to tbem, and, on the other hand,
as tho government is not called upon to pro
vide for the fund, it can meet no objections
on the grounds of governmental economy. As
the carriers are government employes,the ac
cumulations of the fund could best be made
by government ngencies, nnd this, Mr. Gold
zier says, would bo accomplished without ex
pense to the Federal treasury.
The Commissioners yesterday recommended
to Congress that the following proviso be
added to H. R. bill 5131, making appropria
tions for the expenseS"of tho District govern
ment for 1895: "And providod further, thai
hereafter in opening, widening, straighten
ing, and extending alleys in the District
under tho act approved July 22, 1892,.entltled
'An act to provide for the opening of alleys in
the District of Columbia.' tbo jury in addition
to the compensation allowed for tho service
therein mentioned, shall apportion against
the property benefited thereby tbe actual ex
pense of such proceeding. Including tho
usual fees allowed by law to the marshal for
service of process."
Sensational Story Denied.
A local afternoon par.tr yesterday printed n
story that a special guard was on duty each
night outside the President's door, but the
report is not true. Tho White House grounds
nnd house will bo well guarded, and a close
watehjwill be kept for suspicious characters,
but President Cleveland Is decidedly averse to
being kept under guard as it were, and more
over tho ordinary arrangements tor guarding
the White House when crowds are here are
considered sufficient A matter which gave
the President more concern was the permis
sion a local real estato dealer gave Coxey to
encamp in Woodley Park, which adjoins the
President's country place.

HARRISON ON TBE TARIFF
The ex-President's Great Speech to the
Hoosicr Republican Convention.
CAUSE OP THE HARD TIMES
The Present Businesi Depression Laid at the
Boor of Bevenne Tariff Doctrines What
the American Workingman Has Discov
ered His Remarks Were Applauded.
Indianapolis, Ind., April 23. The Repub
lican State Convention day opened clear and
crisp, and although most of the delegates
were up all night working for their favorite
candidates, they wero sustained by enthusi
asm, and showed no signs of fatigue. TVhen
the convention was called to order there were
G.0O0 persons present.
The committee on resolutions reported the
platform, which wa3 adopted. The platform
Indorses President Harrison's administration
and tho legislation of the Republican party,
reaffirming adherence to the doctrine of pro
tection of homo industries, and denounces the
Democratic attempt to overthrow the Ameri
can industrial system; favors increased tariff
duties against countries opposing the coinage
of silver on an international ratio; favors lib
eral construct! oa of the pensions; rigid in
forcement of immigration laws: denounces
the Hawaiian policy of the Cleveland admin
istration and the alleged bargains between
the President and Senators to secure confirma
tion of appointments, and condemns the
Democratic legislation in Indiana.
Pandemonium followed the appearance of
ex-President Harrison, who followed the pre
siding officer. Hats and handkerchiefs were
waved and tho audience rose to its feet amid
cheers. In his speech Gen. Harrison paid a
tribute to Presiding Officer Thompson, and
men couiinucu in pare as ioiiows:
To you, my friends, I come this morning with
an acknowledgment of my grateful obligations
for theso undeserved and accumulated favors
which yeu have heaped upon ma I will not
undertake this morning, it would be inappro
priate, any full discussion of Republican prin
ciples. I will not stand between you and the
important work which you have assembled to
do, and which you are eager to be about.
At some time during the campaign, which so
auspiciously opens to-day. If it be the pleasure
of my fellow-citizens, I shall hold myself at their
services for a fuller discussion. I cannot allow,
as I have said before, that an ex-Iresident has
lost his citizenship. Nor can I admit that a
calm and temperate discussion of great publio
questions Is undignified in any man.
What the orator and pamphleter could not do,
a bitter experience that has lntruden Itself into
every homo and into many has brought starva
tion, has done and is doing to-day. Our friends
may endeavor to persuade the American people
that this period of depression is only one of thoso
periodical panics that at Intervals more or
less certain necessarily fall upon us. Some may
endeavor to persuade the influences that have
brought it about were climatic or seismic, but I
believe 1 do not state it too strongly when I say
that the common mind the close observation of
those who are educated and Instructed by facts
rather than given to refined theories, has settled
upon the cause of this present disastrous depres
sion. They find that causo in the attempt to wipe
out protection legislation and to substitute for it
the doctrines of revenue tariff. They find it in
that uncertainty which has intruded itself Into
every man's business enterprises, which has
paralyzed his enegies and which has compelled
the wheels to stop while this great issue was be
ing concluded. '1 ho American workman is rea
lizing to-day that it is not possible for him to
separate himself in Interest from the manufac
turer who employs him; that he cannot listen to
the wild and vicious appeals which have been
made to him, strike at the men who give employ
ment to labor without bringing the blow back: in
recoil upon himself and upon his family.
The times are full of unrest, disaster and ap
prehension. I beliove to-day that all the tumult
of this wild sea would bo stilled as by the voic
of omnipotence If the great industrial and com
mercial classes of this country could know to
day that there would be no attempt to strike
down protection la American legislation. Ap
plause. The Republican party is friendly to a restitu
tion of silver to a place of honor among the
money metals of the world. Applause. borne
of my friends in the West that thought I was ut
tering uew doctrines when I declared I believe
the free use of silver upon an International agree
ment that would assure its continued equality
with gold would do more than anything that I
know of, save the establishment of the protection
principle, to bring again prosperity Into our
Tho trouble upon this question has been that
some of our western friends would not receive
any man as the fiiend ot silver who believed
that we could not coin it freely and maintain its
parity with gold by coming into an arrangement
with the other great commercial nations of the
world. They should have been more liberaL
I believe to-day that we can see in England,
the nation that has stood mo.t strongly against
the larger use f silver, and In Germany, a na
tion that has followed England, the clear indica
tions of the growth of a sentiment for an Inter
national agreement upon this question. It Is
increasing in power; and I believe if rightfully
and wisely encouraged and directed from. Amer
ica it will finally bring other nations, by the
compulsion of their ow necessities, into accord
with us upon this subject.
In closing Gen. llamson said: Every man, I
have always contended, has a right honorably
to seek office and that a President had no right
to complain that his time was somewhat occu
pied in attending to them. But there is conten
tion that goes with all this that must not be for
gotten. hen a man has honorably, earnestly
by appeal to his friends or to tbe appointing
power, sought a nomination and failed, he alto
gether is to be reprobated if he carries his griev
ance home with him and deserts the party, So
in advance I appeal to this large body who are
to be disappointed to-day to put themselves at
tho front In cheering for their more fortunate
