For his hat, his boots, his

success and the selection of
the one great finishing touch
the cravat depends solely
Possibly so for those who
live where there are no When
stores. But hereabouts our
taste can be secured in the se
lection of a cravat as well as
any other article of dress, and
without extra charge. We
are not going to recommend
a scarlet scarf for a strawberry
blonde, any more than we
would recommend light blue
lor a dark complexion.
You can come to The When

Speaking of Suits, we mention that we

The republican meeting at the wigwam
oi Friday night, while not so large as some
previous meetings in that hall, was a very
larire one for a local meeting, lietween
four and live hundred republicans gathered
in the hall and listened to the speeches oi
Hon. (ieonre C. Kawlln and Judge John
C. Miller, and those who were not there
missed a great treat. Mr. lUwiins's defense
of the work of the last legislature was a
masterly effort, and elicited the heartiest
a iplaiise from Ids auditors.
Mr. IL F. ILiyward. chairmvi of the
central committee, called the meeting to
order and introduced Mr. J. II. Itibbitls, as
In taking (he chair, Mr. Kibbltts made a
ringing speech and then introduced Mr.
After a few preliminary remarks. Mr.
Itawlins took up the theme of his discourse
The democrats say that the republicans
passed the ArnWt bill the bill to wipe
what were known as the "black laws''
from the statute books of the state, and 1
want to say that not a republican vote in
either the house
or the senate was cast
against that bill except alone that of John-
ston. of Huron county. The Springfield
TniMWript, the Siinilay AYirs and demo
crats in all the by-ways and liedges,are cit
ing the passage of this Arnett bill as a rea
son why the next legislature should lie dem
ocratic. Dr. Hust of the High street church, tells
a story of a soldier wounded at the battle
of Justerlilz The surgeons, while prob
ing for the bullet, touched his heart and
the poor fellow cried out in his agony, "Dig
a little deeper and you will find the Ein
peroi." Now I propose to dig a little deeper and
show yu by democratic authority that these
Springfield democrats are inconsistent and
not in line even with their own party. I
hi re lead from Covemor lloadly's annual
nie.-sige to the legislature In iSs.!.
"As the foundation of our liberties is
equality of the rights of citizens, I submit
that tlie existing legal discriminations, on
account of color, are not baed on character
or conduct, and have no relation to moral
worth and Illness for civic usefulness, but
are rather relics of prejudice, which had its
origin in slavery. 1 recommend their total
repeal. In nine-tenths
of the state, sejiarate schools have been
abilished, and mixed schools are sustained
with the approval of the people of both
colors, and all parties, and to the
especial lienefit of the colored
children, whose advantages of education
are thus enhanced, without additional ex
pense lo the Ux-pavers. In a few sections
of the state. Including the city of Cincin
nati. Septra e schools are still maintained
for the education of colored youth, under
section 400S;, Revised -tatntes. Some of
Uie.se rj! good schools and some of thru
teachers aie of the highest order of excel
lence, from wfiose' Instruction any children
of the start might derive profit; but as a
rule, these schools are inferior to mixed
schools. Not only are the opportunities ,
thus afforded inferior to those by which the
white children proht, but they are furnished
to a race long deprived of, and thus more in
need of education. Colored children
are forced to travel long dis
tances, often, of course, in unseasonable
weather, while the duty of the state to fur
nish to all alike, irrespective of social rank
or color, the same fair start and equal
chance in the race of life, is neglected. It
will be your pleasing duty to remedy this."
Again, continued Mr. Itiwlins, Gover
nor Hoailly, in his annual message to the
legislature in lSsG. said: "Kqual civil
rights are enjoyed by all our citizens ex
cept those iossessing a visible admixture of
African blood. I recommend the repeal of
all laws discriminating between citizens on
account of color."
"Now, my friends, that was Governor
Hoailly who used that languge, but the
democracy jxior inconsistent beings re
fuse to be comforted because Governor
Koraker saiil in his inaugural address a few
days afterward :
"The theory of our government recog
nizes the absolute civil and political quality
of all our citizens without regard to race or
color. This theory has not however, had
absolute practical application. There are
still a few laws on our statue books that
create unjust discriminations based on
color. They should be swept away, to the
end that our colored fellow-citizens may
have the same rights and the same oppor
tunities for education and self-elevation,
and the enjoyment of the rights of citizen
ship that other citizens have. This is due
them they have earned it They are
loyal people, and always have been.
They have fought for the flag.
and have attested their heroism and shed
their Woo J on the battle fields of the republic-No
braver soldiers ever followed the stars
and stripes than the heroes of Fort Wagner
and a dozen other contests of the late war,
where colored men patriotically laid down
their lives that this nation might live. We
cannot afford to be less than just to them.
And not only should such rights be fully
accorded. but theirvnforcement should be
adequately provided for by appropriate
Now, my fellow citizens, continued
Mr. llxwiins, I desire you to remember
that it is the democrats wl o are raising the
howl about the repeal of the infamous
"IJlack I.W.." For a minute
let us cast our net Into the
Sixty-Sixth general assembly, which
was lanely democratic. In that legisla
ture. .1 mitre Littler, of this county, intro
duced a bill not only repealing the "Black
ll.aws." but giving a certain number of
colored voters the nirht to a separate
school house if they wanted it a priv
ilege that was never accorded the wh'tes.
The bill passed the lower hou.se by a vote
'it 5'.i to 13. Strangely enough my friend
Johnston, of Stark county, voted for that
bill and then voted against the Arnett bill.
As my old friend, Harney Foltz, says.
Johnston became "wilder fleckered." I
w?nt to call the Tnrnscrfit attention to
another point, and that is, John McBride's
vote. He was a democrat; he voted for
the Littler bill: he voted for the Arnett bill

lit inocracy for secretary of state. When

My sweet and insinuating democratic
friend approaches a republican and If he
ennot Induce him to vote the democratic

You see, my friends, they play any dodge
to draw a vote from the republican ranks,
for they know that a vote for the prohibi
tion candidate is a vote asted, and the
more they can pull from the republicans
the better for them.
The prohibitoin platform of ISS. says
that the colored man has "our hearty sym
pathy in hi efforts to overcome the etfects
of centuries of oppression." Judging from
tlmtt.he democracy cannot make much cap

but the only free things of which the demo
crats .are In favor are free trade and free
whisky. Laughter and applause.
It Is with pleasure that one looks over
the record of the last general assembly of
Ohio. The members of that assembly may
take a pardonable pride In the work accom
plished by them. And it was a great work.
When the legislature convened it was ap
parently democratic The first act of the
republicans was to turn out the notorious
Hamilton county frauds and put in their
places the legally elected members. They
then took l)an Daltnn by the
throat and choked him until he
disgorged "them there papers." Cincin
nati was controlled by police force that
was composed of toughs and thugs of the
worst description. Sixty per cent of that
force were criminals. Citizens were
robbed on the streets every day. Men
were "held up" in the very shadows of the
churches. There was no safety for men or
women, ana especially not for the latter.
Crimes and outrages of all sorts were com
mitted on the ballot, either by the police or
under Ihsdr protection. These election
frauds were gigantic and menaced the en

Springfield lodge. No. .It. H. I'. O. F.Iks,
gave a "social session" last (Friday) even
ing, in inauguration of its new hall and
suite of rooms In the Coblentz-Troupe
building, corner of Main and Market streets.
For a stag affair, the event eclipsed in point
of social brilliancy and sheer pleasure, any
occasion of the season. It is inconceivable
to imagine how so much joviality, enjoy
ment and sport could have been crowded
into one evening's allotment without a sinzle
suggestion of' a departure from the highest
style of gentility, decorum and propriety.
The very make-up of the attend
ance, which Is enumerated further
along, including, as it did. the pulpit,
the bar, the profession of medicine, jour
nalists, bankers, manufacturers, merchants
in a word, the creanrof Springfield's best
citizenship shows mure than any words
could the character of the Elks' inaugural.
It was an evening of which Springfield
lodge may well be proud, and the order lias
received an Impetus by the "session" which
must certainly, manifest Itself in increased
membership and an accession of prosperity
to the lodge. ,
The luxurious parlors of the lodge were
thrown open at an early hour, and Klks
and guests conmencid to assemble prompt
ly. A descriptkm of the new suite has been
given in these columns. Their handsome
furnishings, beautiful decorations and
marked convilenee were the subject of
universal admiration. Surely No. 51 was
"at home" In elegant quarters. As each
visitor or Elk ihterH, his hat, coat and
cne were checked in an ante room and he
was furnished lth a dainty Mareclial Neil
bud as a 1 o itofinier. They were furnished
by the Springleld Seed Co. The early
evening was spent In informal sociability, a
1 1 -asant background for conversation being
furnished by the music of I'm'. Itigio's
harp. Admirable cigars were furnished
without stent' and the rooms were soon
fragrant with the perfume ot burning Ha
vana. The supper was served in the hall imme
diately below the main lodge-rooui. and it
was a repast of Vtliich the lodge justly feels
a little boastful,1 Without any of tiie form
alities of a banquet the menu was fully as
varied and the Wands were par exellence.

Jolly, pleasant and brilliant as the even
ing had been during the earlier hours, it
was not to be compared to what ensued
when the Murray fc Murphy show at
Black's turned out and the company came
over to the Elk hall, headed by those two
royal gentlemen and fun-makers, Messrs.
Murray and aiurpny tnemseives, aim
ably seconded by Brother Young, who will
be remembered as the dude in the perform
ance. The splendid orchestra carried by
the company, came over to a man.fand ren
dered a regular concert programme of over
tures and selections.
The fun broke loose when Brother i oung
took the floor in response to vociferous
calls, and commenced to compliment the
Springfield lodge upon being the "very
finest set of Elks he ever saw." "That's
what he savs to every Elk lodge he visits,"
interpolated little Murphy, and the crowd
roared. 1! rot her Young concluded his
part bv singing "It's not going to happen
this year," a capital topical song In which
he made a big hit during the show earlier
in the evening. The song wound up

Charley Constantine was presiding dur
ing tlie merriment and was in his happiest
mood his very element He at once com
mwnced fining Elks right and left on all
sorts of pretenses, and tlie antlered breth
ren would amble up and pay their little
fines like grown-up people. "I tine you,
BrotherTheo. Troupe for for for-" hes
itated Chairman Charley. "I ain't doing
anything," complained Brother Troupe;
there s nothing the matter with me : "l
fine you ten cents for having nothing the
matter with you." returned tlie presiding
officer, with calm conviction.
Brother Troupe went up and deposited.
The chair then lined him ten cents for being
fined. Arm Griffith tried to put a motion
to fine the chair and was fined ten cents for
usurping thechairsprerogative. Ixud calls
were made for "Slurray! Murray!" Sam
Waldman dashed up and in his con
fusion seized noui ot little jiurpny. iiej

phy next sang "Clara Nolan's Ball" in a
great manner, and the encore was so thun
derous that theyrhad to respond witli "5Ir.
Fiannigan. There s Going to be a Kow,"
which was received witli great enthusiasm.
At this point Kelly Derrickson was tilled
for smiling, and Brothers Trump and Clark
for not showing up. I.. 51. Harris was ap
pointed policeman, and got oft some ad
mirable parlor comedy, i-.x-aiayor ttood
win sat with his arm carelessly thrown
around the back of a friend's chair and was
fined for having his arm around
so-nebody other than the newly-become
5Irs. Goodwin. II. II. Tyner was fined
'for standing on one leg, and 11. T.
West for standing on the otl er
one. Brney toltz had to pav
the penalty for interfering with
tiie acuostic properties of the
hall. "Doc" Dolson was fined a moment
later for keeping his mouth shut Broth
er D. T. West was mulcted for being an in
former, and Brother It J. Nelson for in
forming on Brother West. Brother Carl
Mower was fined for being lieutenant of a
company which took only tilth prize at
Chicago. Brother T. F. 5Ic(Jrew gave an
imitation of how Chairman Constantine
marched in a democratic procession, which
made every one shriek witli laughter. Dur
ing tlie levying of these absurd lines the
audience kept roaring with laughter and
the merriment was indescribable.
Brother II. T. West was called upon for
a speech, and made a graceful little address
vf welcome to the visiting Elks and set
forth the objects of the order in a hand
some and eloquent fashion. Brother West
is apparently never at a loss for a response
when called upon. Prof. John Keising
played a cornet solo. "The Carnival of
Venice," in a brilliant and finished manner
to the improvised accompaniment of the
Brother Mai tin, of Cincinnati, the oldest
Elk in Ohio, who had been a lively element
in ineevenlnc s entertainment, was next
called out, and after making a irraceful
and pertinent address. full of
comedy and point. concluded with
a rscitatinn of Hamlet's soliloquy with won
derful dramatic effect. He concluded to
deafening applause. After more music the
crowd gathered around the altar, right
hand over the left and sang "Auld Lang

hand-shakes and fraternal expressions the
Joval crowd seperated for the night or
Though the fun was of the merriest kind
throughout there was nothing in the affair
even remotely resembling a carousal, and
the hilarity was of the gentlemanly kind.

man Constantine lined himself S10 for not

AN INTERESTING MEETlh
All Ml.sion .Sleets and ltenrs Two
..y Interesting Taper. Kend.
There were a fairly good number of
Christian workers in attendance last (Fri
day) evening at the meeting of the McAlI
5Iisslon at the First English Lutheran
chinch. The meeting was conducted by
the president, Sirs. Dr. Burt and opened
with singing, and prajer by Itev. S. P.
Dunlap, of the Congregational church.
There were no reports to be heard, and
the reading of some Interesting papers fol
lowed, the first being that of Sirs. Prof. II.
V. Prmee. Her theme was? "WhvliimM
we be interested In tee 5IcAH 5Itsslon?'VMaJ
5lrs. Prince then read her very interest- ,
lng answer, beginning with the closing of
tlie ministry of Christ upon earth whn he
was about to depart from his disciples, and
of his parting commands to those who had
been his constant companions: "Go ye,
therefore, and teach all nations." He did
not mean a life of idleness for us
but we should go and proclaim Christ to all
the perishing souls in all the natio is of the
earth. God not only continues to give his
command to preach Christ to ail the na
tions, but he Is everywhere opening the way
and inclining tlie hearts of the people unto
him. In no nation have greater opportuni
ties been given than in France. Weary of
the hollowness and unsatisfying claims of
Catholicism, and tlie fearful outlook of
atheism, they stand trembling on the verge
of despair, desiring something which is
more satisfying and they are willing to em
brace a religion which will satisfy heart

I lie kwoim paper was read by the I
Ur. Fiillerton of the Second Presbyterian
church. The subject chosen was the "McAI
Mk-iop,". The doctor gave a reason why
it should live, and made a review of the
Piwork it had accomplished durins: its life of
-I n..!...J l
lieuig born in l-'rance in 1871 it was
really a year later when it work was fair
ly begun. A simple reason for its living is
that it has lived fifteen years and its mis
sion is just begun. The first plea that it
makes for its life is. 'Tlie great need of
Paris and of France." A second reason
Is. "That its life may meet in the grand
opportunities for the Gospel growing out of
the state of things alre.tuv simken of.
France is in a disturbed condition, but
there is a disturb nice of mind which is
friendly to the Gospel."
Again, the .McAI I 5Iission gives a reason
for living in tlie potential worth of France
to the cause of Christ, and especially tn the
cause of missions throughout the world.
A review of tlie work done in France
and the good that has been accomplished
made the paper especially interesting to

MKiirins, Oct 15. The presidential
procession moved at 0:43 this morning.
The streets were never before so crowded
The formal reception bejan at the court
house square f.t 10:30. The formal speech
of welcome was delivered bv Judge II. T.
Ellett, of the chancery court who spoke
for Memphis and the south. He extended
a hearty welcome and presented the free
dom of tlie city. He said, among other
things: One great and important Interest
in the progress of things became sectional
ized and oat of it rose the question of con
stitutional interpretation, which was re
garded by tlie southern people so vital to
their rights and interests that they com
mitted th solution to the arbitration of
arms; but Mr. President they hare ac
cepted the result of the struggle as a
final settlement ot all questions I
in dispute. And one practical
result accomplished by the coutllct was that
the theory of the right of a state to with
draw from the federal compact was over
thrown, and the indestructibility of the
American Union was established on the
nrmesi looting, it is settled beyond ap
peal that for all abuses and grievances that
may arise from the action of the general
government, the remedy must hereafter be
sought within tlie pale of the Union, un
d.T tne forms of law.
President Cleveland replied, recounting
the history of Memphis, its vicissitudes. Its
present condition, including much statis
tical Information. In reference to Judge
EH.-tt's remarks, he said: The patriotic
sentiment expressed on your behalf by
your honored fellow citizen, in lib adJross
of welcome. I am sure I may say will be
generously responded to by your country
men of the North.
They want I believe, rest from sectional
bitterness. The business interests of our
people are too alert and intelligent to be
sacrificed or injured by selfish appeals to a
passion that should be allayed. They only
Insist that all results of tlie arbitrament of
arms to which reference lias been made,
shall be fully accepted and enforced.
