Jo Caknon says jou can't stop a mad
republican. That's the reason the re
publicans In this district are on the run.
If it is not too late, we would like to
remark that smuggling is one of the in
fant industries that will flourish under
the new tariff law. Il had been In a
aomewhit languishing condition for some
time pr st. It now has its inning!1.
The CnUm says that Mr- J. L. Haas
baa returned from a trip down tbe dis
trict and that be predicts great success
1 along the line. Mr. Baas may have
predicted it by word but deep down in
bit heart be taw the ruin which Mr. Qest
had wrought and knew that be ha 'n't a
ghost of a show for election.
The Union is a sticker for the best kind
kind of legal evidence on the part of
Charles Engel who has given facts as to
Mr. Cable's charitable deeds towards tbe
poor. The contents of the records prov
ing tbe matter were produced, but still
tbe organ was not satisfied. It would
look as if Mr. Engel would be oMiged to
come out with a circular some dark night
in order to settle the matter.
While Speaker R-ed waa in tbe east

the McCinlej bill shut out foreign com

paign yesterday in tbe corn exchange,

of people eager to sea and hear tbe great
Liberal leader, and when the ball bad
been crowded to suffocation thousands of

Record or the Tories.
In opening be referred to the Irish
qnestion, and he kept that matter before
the audience to the end. He said the
question must be settled before anything
else could be done. He then went on to
ahow that the Tories had not kept their
promises, and this portion of bis rpeech
was largely a reiteration of bis speeches
In parliament on the coercion bill, the
local government bill, and the expropria
tion bill, all ot which he denounced as
faulty and useless for the purposes in
tended. The Conservatives took credit
upon themselves for setting Ireland right
by means of a firm and resolute govern
ment. But so poorly had they earned
the right to make such a boast, that it
might truly be said that defective though
the law was, the administration of it was
worse than the law itself,

ludeed. so deplorable waa the state to
which affairs had been brought that he
would not hesitato to declare that the
Irish people ought to bate the law.tbough
he would not say that they ought to
break it. He would not sanction lawless
ness, even though the Irish people had
constantly before them an eminently bad
example cf lawlessness in quarters which
should be the fouutain head of legality.
For the government of Ireland w.is itself
a perfect pattern of unlawfulness, and its

The Tlpporarv Trial.
Referring to the Tipperary trials he
said that it waa grossly illegal to close
the court room aKainst tbe people of Tip
perary. One of the right of every Brit
ish aubject was that if trie ! be should be
tried openly and in the public view. The
appoint nieut of Shannon, one of tbe trial

ists was, while perhaps not technically
illegal, a gr.ws scandal, not merely be
cause he bad been previously railed upon
to act as an executive officer in denting

in his judicial capacity, but also because

Indwelling upon the action of the po
lice in attacking respectable and peacea-
citizeus and visitors with batons.
Gladstone remarked that after such mia
conduct on the pare of the police at Mitcb
elstown, Tipperary, and elsewhere it
would be expecting impossibilities to look
for tbe maintenance of popular respect
for tbe constabulary or their administra
tion of law. Further than this, the sys
tematic brutality of the police was
crowned by tbe insult of cbrouic absentee
ism on tbe part of responsible officials.
He then strongly denounced Balfour for
not spending more of his time iu Ireland.
The Government'e Hoasc
The government had the audacity to
boast that Ireland had grown peaceable
under ita administration, yet it kept six
fold more policemen in Ireland than in
the whole of England and Scotland. Tbe
British people were forced to pay ;i.6oO.-
imu annually to support tbe police in Ire
land for tbe purpose of assisting the land
lords to collect their rents at least this
was apparently the chief function of the
constabulary. Tbe English and Scotch
landlords, who maintained fair and eu'iit-
able relations with tbeir tenants, did not
ask tbe aid of the police in collecting
their rents. Yet tbeir occasional losses
footed up more than those of tbe Irish

British Manufacturers Hopeful of Amer
LONDON', Oct. 22. The feeling of alarm
which was aroused among British manu
facturers by the passage of tbe UcKinley
bill la abating in many quarters, and a re
action of hopefulness has set in. This la
especially notable among makers of high
grade goods of various description The
opinion which universally prevail in
Europe, that Americans are rich and ex
travagant, is shared by tbe manufacturers
of Birmingham, Bradford, and Manches
ter, who have faith that these wealthy
Americans most and will have tbe beat of
everything regardless of alight differences
in price. And or course the English man
ufacturer baa no doubt as lo where alone
the beat of everything ia to be procured.

The makers of cheaper grades of com
modities feel tbe effects of checked Amer

covering courage as prospects of new mar

their indefatigable agents. Tne inclina
tion of some large firms to establish larcra
plants in the United States causes no ap
prehension that the sum total of British
manufacture will be diminished, for it la
pointed out that in sucb cases heretofore
the borne factories have continued as a
rule to do as large a business as before
the branches were thrown out.

The funeral of Willie Sprague, who com
mitted auicide at Seattle, took place here
yesterday, and was attended by some very
aad scenes. Tbe affair seemed to be looked
upon in tbe light ot a public ceremony
and ptople from all over the state from
tbe million-lire manufacturer down to the
humble mill band who had at aome time
been In tbe service of the Spragues, came
pouring into tbe town. The trains Mon
day night and early yesterday morning
were crowded, and every unoccupied room
taken tbat could be procured. Many of
the old family friends aeemed inclined to
take tbe opportunity offered and make
aome demonstration for Kate Chase and
her danghier, but ahe declined ae-iing any
The Mother's Offering.
The services took place from St. Peters
Episcopal church, which waa jammed
witb spectators. Rector Ackley officiated.
Tbe remains were incased in a handsome
solid rosewood coffin, which waa buried
in flowers, tbe largest and most magnifi
cent offering being from Mrs. Chase, with
the words on a card "From a Devoted
Mother." .Mrs. Chase and ber daughter
eat on one side of the church and Gov
ernor Sprague and bis wifa and their
party opposite, both attracting great at
tention. From the first it was seen that
Mrs. Chaee was greatly overcome, and it
was Foon noised abroad that ahe had tried
to bave a look at her dead son while he
lay in the Sprague mansion, but shh was
warned to keep away. ,
Sprague's Vntnanly Cruelty.
Her lawyer got the promise that the
coffin would be uncovered in the church,
but when the undertaker went to re
move tbe lid Governor Sprague sent him
a message to desist By thia time Mrs.
Chase had risen in her pew and was on
the point of starting np the aisle when
ahe saw the action. Sbe at once started
forward with a half-suppressed cry, as if
to rush to tbe casket, when ahe waa
caught by ber daughter and friends and
held back. With a lond cry sbe sank
into tbe pew. sobbing hysterically. Tbe
people were thrown into confusion. Tbe
governor sat in his sent, his face auerted
and covered by his black bat, while bts
wife tried to divert bis attention on the
An Affecting Incident.
Despite the occasion number of people
left their seat aud pressed around the
pew of Mrs. Chase. Many of them were
old friends and former servants of the
Spraguea All attempts to keep tbem out
ot the pew were unavailing, and they
crowded about their old beloved mistress,
many crying aloui. Mrs. Chase was en
tirely overcome, and catching each one of
the old female servants kissed tbem re
peatedly, while they seized ber bands,
dross, and anything they could take bold
of, pressing it to iheir lip. Mr. Ackley,
to put an ena to wnat promised to be a
hysterical panic, hurried through tbe ser
vice. Another Inault to the Mother.
Seeing the pall-bearers about to move
tbe casket Mrs. Chase started to take her
place near tbe coffin, tbe crowd giving
way to ber. She was almost there when
Governor Sprague and bis party crowded
forward and took up the post of honor.
Mr. Sprague made no further attempt to
gat near ber dead boy 'a body, but aank
back in the pew and gave Lerself up to
grief. Her daughters remained with her.
aud so did most of thoae present in tbe
church, all trying to offer their syicpa
thies and contola'.ion.
Tho Ex-Ooveraor Should Feel Proud.
The body waa taken to the family vault
at swan f oiut and interred. hen
abe could compose herself Mrs. Chase de
clared abe would not leave the place un
til he compelled her enemiea to let ber
look on her son's face, and it was with the
greatest difficulty that abe could be dis
suaded. Sbe and her daughter did not go
near the tomb after that, but took the
afternoon train for Providence. The great
est sympathy is exproaaed on all side for

he to whom this testimonial is given
he upon whose head bave fallen tbeanows
of more than seventy winters gave to the
world a book, Leave of Grass. Thia
book waa, and la. tbe true transcript of a

Haw tho Ilook Waa BeeeWetl.
"Hia book was received by many with
disdain, with horror, with indignation
and protest by tbe few as a marveloua,
almost miraculous rueMage to tbe world
full of thought, philosophy, potry and
music. Sinoe the year the American
people have developed; they are some
what acquainted with the literature of
the world, and I propose to examine thia
book, and td state in a general way what
Walt Whitmau haa done, what be has ac
complished, and the place he has won in
the world of thought"

CoL ingersoll then entered Into his

him as a philosopher; and passing on, the
lecturer recited and com meu ted on the
poem "A Word Out ot the Sea" and the
lines on tbe death of Lincoln. ""When 14
lacs Last in tbe Door Yard Bloomed."
"The poem." be said, "wilt last as long aa
tbe memory of Lincoln. In this one book,
in these wondrous "Leaves of Grass," you
find hints and suggestions, touches and
fragments, of ail there is of life, that liea
between tbe babe, whose rounded cheeks
dimple beneath his mother's laughing,
loving eyes, and the old man, snow
crowned, who, with a smile, exteuds bis
hand to death."
