New York, July t. "-General James S.
Clarkson was "biuiqueted at the Oriental
tiotel, Manhattan Beaxh, lant night. Cov
ers were laid for thirty, Vtnd among the
thirty who were present were two Repub
lican gTilx-rnatorial talidaf Postmas
ter Van Cott and Cornelius X. Bliss. Te
latter prrilel Other frnests were Thoni
tu C. Piatt, Senator Fasselt, Collector
Erhardt, Marshal Jacobns and lesser lo
cal Republican lights. It was strictly a
private nfTair, although it is stated that
ninch was dismsved which Is of great pub
lic concern, ns it is said that General
Clarkson was consulted as to ways and
means for turning down the Democracy
in this state next full and In lsyj.
4'larkson Makes a Speech.
A report of what Clarkson said when
liis time to sjM-ak came has been obtained.
"When he arose he was received with cheers,
and said in part: "The workingman in
Europe who reads will surprise yon by
his acquaintance with American affaire.
The working people, the peasantry, the
mechanics, and all the people to whom
food is a question of daily concern, realize
not only that this nation protects its own
Interests, bnt that thereby it has grown
eo rich in production that it can, under
the right system of reciprocity, furnish
meats and other products to their tables,
which are now without them, and at prices
they can afford.
Protection and Forelpn Trade.
"A Republican visiting Europe is doubly
pleased to find that an enlarged American
trade w ith other countries is not only pos
jiible under the system of protection, but
most largely possible through the opera
tions of protection and reciprocity. All
doubts that I had as to the practical wis
dom of the McKinley bill and of the new
Republican system of reciprocity were
removed by what 1 saw ami learned in
lew American Flags Afloat.
" When an A nierican sees t he harbors an d
ports of foreign lands and passes over the
seas of commerce and scarcely finds an
American flag, he realizes that here is one
thing as to which he cannot be proud of
lis country. Y hen he does see the Ameri
can flag flying at the peak, between the
water and the stars, he feels such pride in
it and its colors and what it means as he
never felt befrfre. But be so seldim has
the opportunity that he realizes painfully
the fact that his country npplies the prin
ciple of protection to its own interests
everywhere else except upon the sea..
The Little Mlue I'euuant.
"This humiliation increases when he
sees great vessels passiug him bearing the
English flag or some other foreign colors,
with a little blue pennant hardly disceru
able flying on the mast, bearing the ini
tials 'U. S. M.' United States mail.
Then he realizes, with shame for his own
country, that the commercial and patri
otic wisdom of other lands outstrips his
own nation so much upou the sea as even
to make the United States mail and the
compensation for carrying it a means of
Increasing their shipping power and in
come." Faith In Republican Clubs.
Mr. Clarkson then declared that it was
the league of Republican clubs that "gave
a restored pulse to a defeated party and
put it on its feet for the victory that was
possible to it in 1S8H." He said there were
1,20(1 of these clubs with l.iuu.tmu voters
In them, and that there ought to he a
club in every community. Some of the
other speakers were Major Buudy, Gen
eral O' Hie rue and Nat McKay.
BLAINE'S RIGHT-HAND MAN.
Senator Hale Give a Reporter an Inter
BarHakboh, Me., July IS. A corre
apondent called upon Senator Hale at his
beautiful snmmer home in Ellsworth,
which is about twenty miles from Bar
Harbor. The seuator, who as everybody
knows, is Mr. Blaine's right-hand man,
and as close to him both in friendship and
politics as any one in the coHiitry, spoke
about the conditiou of the secretary of
state and also regarding the prospects for
the approaching national campaign. His
words Ijave an especial significance in
view of the fact that Senator Hale has
been in almost daily communication with
Mr. Blaine during his entire illness.
Truth About Blaine's Illuru.
The senator was asked to give the facta
about Mr. Blaine's illness, and after giv
ing the press a going over for the sensa
tional reports it has spread abroad he
said: "The trnth about Mr. Blaine's case
can be very briefly stated. He worked too
hard during the winter and had a severe
illness in New York to puy for it. He
had rheumatic gout, too, in its most paiu
ful form. That, however, was all before he
came to Bar Harbor, where he has been
convalescing steadily and rapidly evtr
since his arrival. He hits been doing there
what any sensible man would do in his
place, that is taking an absolute rest, with
plenty of driving, good, wholesome food
and regular sleep. That is all there is to
It. Of course, he has worried about him
self, as he always will do, but there was
no more ground for such worry than there
has been at many previous times in his
life. Today Mr. Blaine is as well as I am,
and will return to Washington ready for
the work be will have to do.
The President and the Premier.
"Is it true, senator, that there is a cold
ness or jealousy between Mr. Blaine and
"That is another of their the corre
spondents silly lies, and is as devoid of
any basis in fact as the (reports that Mr.
Blaine is dying. I was with President
Harrison a month ago. and can assure
you that he has only the kindest regard
and most sincere friendship for his secre
tary of state. ' There is absolutely no
jealousy or ill will, either open or con
cealed, between these two men."
As to the Nomination in 1892.-
"But is it not true that they bothtlesire
the nomlaation for lB!tt " '
"Most certainly not. I do not mean to
say that they would refuse it if offered to
them, but I do mean thut they are not
worrying or thinking about it. That is a
great mistake people make to imagine that
people whose names are spoken of as pos
sible candidates are always scheming with
thnt end in view. Scheming does no good,
and the men who desire most to be presi
des are jnst the ones most apt to 'get
left.' Blaine and Harrison are loyal, both
as friends and as Republicans, and either
would support the other if nominated."
Th Secretary Attending; to Business.
Secretary Blaine took his drive yester
day as usual. Besides driving he walks
considerably of late every fair day. He is
constantly improving in health. His phy
sician says the improvement has ' been
much more rapid lately than at first, and
he is more hopeful and confident about
himself. It was learned last night that
Mr. Blaine was closeted for an hour with
an attorney, thus showing that he attends
SCHEME OF THE ALLIANCE.
It Troposes to Capture the National
Hogaxsville, Ga., July 18. It is inter
esting to talk to the Alliance men in this
section wko are jubilant over the meet
ings now being held in this part of
Georgia, and particularly over that at
Athens Thursday. When accused of try
ing to start a new party they deny it and
say that they compose the Democratic
party, and that those who agree with
them and are in favor of the Cicala platform
pure and simple are Democrats. Those
who do not agree them are not Democrats
and should not be allowed to remain in
the party. They will endeavor to capture
the next National Democratic convention
and make the Ocala platform its platform.
Weaver Makes Some Claims.
If this looks too doubtful the Alliance
men are determined to join their fortunes
with the new People's party. In talking
over the prospects of the Alliance, General
Weaver stated that the People's party
could carry the two Dakotas, Iowa, Ne
braska, Kansas, Minnesota, and Missouri.
He Stated further that the sentiment in
favor of the Ocala platform was growing
so rapidly that other states, especially
those in the south, will rapidly fall into
line and by 1892 the People's party ticket
with a solid south and northwest would
go through with a rush, snowing both old
parties so far under that they would
Stevenson Boomed for Governor.
Springfield, Ills., July 18. Ex-Representative
Tom Merritt, the veteran poli
tician of Salem, Marion county, was in
the city yesterday. He said there was a
strong feeling among the Democracy of
his part of the state for Adlai E. Steven
sun for governor. He looks upon Steven
son as the man of all ot hers who should be
the next candidate of his party.
Republican National Committee.
Philadelphia, July 18. Chairman
Quay, of the Republican national com
mittee, has called a meeting of the execu
tive committee in this city for the 2iuh
inst. It is understood that the full com
mittee will convene in New York or
Washington in November and fix some
time in May next for the nntioual convention.
CLAIMS OF THE SWITCHMEN.
Some Inside History of the Recent Trouble
Chicago, July 18. S. E. Wilkinson,
grand master of the Brotherhood of Rail
road Trainmen, and W. A. Sheahan, sec
retary, have issued a circular setting
forth the inside history of the trouble that
led to a wholesale discharge of its switch
men by the Northwestern road The chief
points of interest are that the Switch
men's Mutual Aid association had de
termined to drive every yard man in Chi
cago who refused to become a member of
their order out of his position. When
they began operations by forcing two men
out, and the trainmen could go no satis
faction from Grand Master Monaghan,
the trainmen for the first time discovered
the conspiracy, says the circular.
The Case of McNerney.
Next they branded McNerney as a
"scWb," and at a conference between offi
cials of the two bodies said he would not
be permitted to work in any yard in the
city. The switchmen further asserted:
"We claim the right to drive from the
switching service any member who does
not pay his dues to our organization. We
claim the right to say who shall be em
ployed as yardmasters in the different
yards in Chicago. We claim that the
Brotherhood of Trainmen have no rights
in any yard in the United States and the
time is coming when a man cannot work
in any yard uuless he is a member of our
association." Then the trainmen went to
the railway officios and planned the
wholesale discharge which duly took

ror Reported on the Chicago and Erie
New York, .uly 18. For more than
half an hour" yesterday afternoon a man
hung in the air pinched between an eleva
tor and a brick wall, with broken bones
and suffering horrible agony, while a
crowd stood under him utterly helpless to
succor or relieve him. This strange scene
was witnessed in the wholesale hat house
of A. C Woodruff & Co., 252 Merer
street. The ma a was Joseph Michaels, 24
years old and a porter in the hat house.
At 4:30 he got cn the freight elevator on
the first floor ar d started to go to the top
floor. Michaels stood somewhat careless
ly on one side of the platform as it went
np and must h we let his right foot dan
gle over the edge between the side of the
plat form and tte well.
Made a H uman Wedge of Him.
The elevator slid past the foot and
gripped vice-like on the leg. Either Mi
chaels was too startled to stop the machine
or the rope was out of his reach. The plat
form ran away up the wall, drawing his
left leg into the same vise and crushing
them and squeezing finally his whole bady.
When it had reached his waist and his
whole frame below that had been horribly
jammed and mangled against the wall
the human wedge stopped the machinery
and Michaels hung there, uttering the
most heartrending shrieks of anguish, the
whole power of the machine still pull'ng
up against him.
Attempted to Move the Platform.
At Mich! e s' first shriek Police Captain
Brogan sent out a hurry call for an ambu
lance and then had the elevator machinery
stopped and tried to get the platform
down solas to release the man. Buttle
instant the platform was moveJ down : n
inch Michaels redoubled his screams, tl -flesh
being ail torn and mangled. He . e
clartd letween his cries and groans that .o
move the plat'orm over his hurts again
was worse thai, to leave Lim wt e -e he wes.
Repeated efforts showed the man was
Had to l ake Ilnttn the Wall.
In this situation the crowd that bed
gathered were unable to do a thing to
help him, but ran up and down in help
less excitemenT. Finally Captain Borgan
sent a messenger around to Engine house
No. 33, with ii.structions to bring three
liremeu with pickaxes and crowbars.
Foreman Nash, of the engine company,
brought the tieu over himself. Under
his direction they followed out Captain
Borgau's idea, and began to dig through
the wall oppos te to where Michaels was
hanging, while the ambulance surgeon
gave Micheals opiates until he ceased to
feel his pain.
Terrible Injuries Received.
At 5:30 the f remen took out the last
brick and drev Michaels out. His right
leg was broken in two places, one being
a compound iracture. Above the knees to
the waist the flesh was almost ground off
his bones. Bl jod had flown from these
hurts nntil it was a wonder Michaels was
alive. He was, taken to the hospital and
the surgeons, after his wonnds were
dressed, said that in spite of them he
would probab.y get well.
